No non-Muslim country should accept any Muslim immigrants.

Molenbeek

Politico has the story:

A former resident reflects on his struggles with Brussels’ most notorious neighborhood.
By TEUN VOETEN 11/21/15, 6:30 AM CET

Last Saturday in Paris, at the Boulevard Voltaire near the Bataclan club, I found myself staring at a pool of blood. I wondered what was happening with the world, and refocused my camera on the aftermath of the terror. When it became clear the attacks were planned in Molenbeek, I was not surprised. The real surprise? That Belgium expressed shock at the connection.

* * *

I called Molenbeek my home for nine years. In 2005, it was the city’s last affordable neighborhood — in large part because of its bad reputation. My apartment, just across the canal from the city center, is close to the home where two suspects in the Paris attacks were based, and around the corner from where the shooter from the foiled Thalys attack in August had been staying.

I was part of a new wave of young urban professionals, mostly white and college-educated — what the Belgians called bobo, (“bourgeois bohémiens”) — who settled in the area out of pragmatism. We had good intentions. Our contractor’s name was Hassan. He was Moroccan, and we thought that was very cool. We imagined that our kids would one day play happily with his on the street. We hoped for less garbage on the streets, less petty crime. We were confident our block would slowly improve, and that our lofts would increase in value. (We even dared to hope for a hip art gallery or a trendy bar.) We felt like pioneers of the Far West, like we were living in the trenches of the fight for a multicultural society.

Slowly, we woke up to reality. Hassan turned out to be a crook and disappeared with €95,000, the entire budget the tenants had pooled together for our building’s renovation. The neighborhood was hardly multicultural. Rather, with roughly 80 percent of the population of Moroccan origin, it was tragically conformist and homogenous. There may be a vibrant alternative culture in Casablanca and Marrakech, but certainly not in Molenbeek.

Over nine years, I witnessed the neighborhood become increasingly intolerant. Alcohol became unavailable in most shops and supermarkets; I heard stories of fanatics at the Comte des Flandres metro station who pressured women to wear the veil; Islamic bookshops proliferated, and it became impossible to buy a decent newspaper. With an unemployment rate of 30 percent, the streets were eerily empty until late in the morning. Nowhere was there a bar or café where white, black and brown people would mingle. Instead, I witnessed petty crime, aggression, and frustrated youths who spat at our girlfriends and called them “filthy whores.” If you made a remark, you were inevitably scolded and called a racist. There used to be Jewish shops on Chaussée de Gand, but these were terrorized by gangs of young kids and most closed their doors around 2008. Openly gay people were routinely intimidated, and also packed up their bags.

I finally left Molenbeek in 2014. It was not out of fear. The tipping point, I remember, was an encounter with a Salafist, who tried to convert me on my street. It boiled down to this: I could no longer stand to live in this despondent, destitute, fatalistic neighborhood.

* * *

How did Molenbeek become Europe’s jihadi base? Essentially, it has to do with Belgium’s messy governance and the culture of denial that pervades the debate about Islam in the country. Molenbeek is a vibrant community, with narrow streets and a busy street life. There is a teahouse on every corner, a quiet mosque on every block, where people can congregate undisturbed. There are cheap apartments galore, no questions asked. Just like the guerrilla can hide in the jungle, jihadis feel safe in the disorganized Kashba of Molenbeek. The highway and the city’s busiest international railroad station are a stone’s throw away. It’s the perfect logistical base.

It is nearly impossible to explain to an outsider, but Belgium is a country of six governments, Brussels a city with 19 mayors. These many administrative posts are not filled with competent people. Security services are fragmented and tend to compete with one another. The lack of a strong, central authority may be one of the many quirks of this sometimes charmingly dysfunctional country, but just as it resulted in many botched trials — notably of the Brabant Killers, or “Nijvel Gang” who committed a series of violent raids between 1982 and 1985, and the Dutroux scandal in 1995, to name just two — it also creates the perfect breeding ground for potential terrorists.

But the most important factor is Belgium’s culture of denial. The country’s political debate has been dominated by a complacent progressive elite that firmly believes society can be designed and planned. Observers who point to unpleasant truths such as the high incidence of crime among Moroccan youth and violent tendencies in radical Islam are accused of being propagandists of the extreme-right, and are subsequently ignored and ostracized.

The debate is paralyzed by a paternalistic discourse in which radical Muslim youths are seen, above all, as victims of social and economic exclusion. They in turn internalize this frame of reference, of course, because it arouses sympathy and frees them from taking responsibility for their actions. The former Socialist mayor Philippe Moureax, who governed Molenbeek from 1992 to 2012 as his private fiefdom, perfected this culture of denial and is to a large extent responsible for the current state of affairs in the neighborhood.

On YouTube: Acknowledge, Don’t Apologize

Published on Mar 29, 2016 by Political Islam

Every time jihadis kill Kafirs, our leaders and Muslims launch another “Don’t blame Muslims” campaign. The latest campaign is presented by Omar Alnatour. He takes the approach of Muslims should not apologize for what criminals do, because terrorists have nothing to do with Islam.

OA: “Radicals have hijacked his religion”
If a Muslim imitates Mohammed, he is following the Sunna, which the Koran commands Muslims to do. It is not a crime, if you do what Mohammed did.

OA: “Islam teaches peace”
Islam does preach peace, but it also preaches jihad. Mohammed rose to power on politics and jihad, not peace.

OA: “Islam says not to kill the innocents”
Yes, but Kafirs are guilty of rejecting Mohammed and are not innocent.

OA: “Muslims are not terrorists”
No, Muslims are called to be jihadis, not terrorists. The Koran devotes 24% of the Medinan Koran to jihad.

OA: “Muslims condemn terrorism”
Perhaps, but will Muslims acknowledge that they cannot condemn what Mohammed did? They cannot condemn Mohammed’s jihad.

OA: “Good Muslims have no relationship to terrorists”
Peaceful Muslims say the same prayers, read the same Koran and follow the Sunna as the jihadis.

http://www.acts17.net

In his book “Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth,” creative writing professor Reza Aslan claims that the Jewish command to “Love your neighbor as yourself” only applied to one’s fellow Jews, and that Jews were ordered to expel foreigners from the land of Israel. Aslan writes:

“When it came to the heart and soul of the Jewish faith—the Law of Moses—Jesus was adamant that his mission was not to abolish the law but to fulfill it (Matthew 5:17). That law made a clear distinction between relations among Jews and relations between Jews and foreigners. The oft-repeated commandment to ‘love your neighbor as yourself’ was not Jesus’s invention. It comes directly from the Torah and is meant to be applied strictly in the context of internal relations within Israel. The verse in question reads: ‘You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against any of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself’ (Leviticus 19:18). To the Israelites, as well as to Jesus’s community in first-century Palestine, ‘neighbor’ meant one’s fellow Jews, whether friend or foe. With regard to the treatment of foreigners and outsiders, oppressors and occupiers, however, the Torah could not be clearer: ‘You shall drive them out before you. You shall make no covenant with them and their gods. They shall not live in your land’ (Exodus 23:31-33).”

But what happens when we go to the chapters Reza quotes and find them saying the exact opposite of what he claims? Find out as David Wood fact-checks Reza Aslan.

Florida panther sitting on Ft. Myers porch

FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute has the story:

(h/t: Naples Daily News)

It’s not every day you look out the window to see a Florida panther sitting on your porch! Phil Hendra was at his father’s house in East Fort Myers (Lee County) just south of the Orange River on March 18 when he took this photo of the endangered big cat. “It stayed for about 20 minutes and laid down for a bit,” said Hendra. “It looked at us inside the window then slowly walked away and we have not seen it since. My parents have lived here since 1988 and they may have seen a younger panther about two years ago, but nothing compares to this once in a lifetime experience.” We’d like to mention that this sighting did not occur in the Oldsmar area of Pinellas County. There’s been a lot of misinformation spreading on social media regarding the sighting location, so please disregard these false claims.

As human beings we sometimes feel paralyzed without help. We sometimes feel we can’t possibly reach Christ. At that moment it helps to always remember we have the Church to help us. Just as the paralytic whose friends lifted him over the wall so he could reach Christ (Mark 2.1-12), the members of the Church have been given to us to help us in those moments we can’t do it alone. If the paralytic had been alone, he would have remained outside the house and never reached Christ. We can’t reach Christ without the Church, as we profess in the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed. We believe in One Holy Catholic and Apostolic CHURCH, and just as the paralytic needed his friends, we need the Church.

BizPacReview has the story:

In the feuding over their wives that erupted this week, Donald Trump threatened to “spill the beans” on Ted Cruz’s wife Heidi, and an aide for the billionaire businessman made good on that promise.

“Spilling the beans is quite simple when it comes to Heidi Cruz,” Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson told MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki on Friday.

“Her entire career has been spent working against everything Ted Cruz says that he stands for,” Pierson said, after running through a list of affiliations.

“She is a Bush operative; she worked for the architect of NAFTA, which has killed millions of jobs in this country; she was a member on the Council on Foreign Relations who — in Sen. Cruz’s own words, called a nest of snakes that seeks to undermine national sovereignty; and she’s been working for Goldman Sachs, the same global bank that Ted Cruz left off of his financial disclosure,” Pierson said.

As Pakistani Christians gathered at a park in Lahore to celebrate the resurrection of their Lord Jesus Christ, a Taliban suicide bomber worked his way towards the women and children before detonating his bomb. How many of these senseless atrocities must occur before Western politicians and the media start seriously examining the origins of Islamic violence? David Wood discusses the problem.

Many people know friendly and charming Muslims. The same people then believe that Islam could not condone jihad, since the Muslims they know are so nice.

Wake up to the fact that Muslims do not create Islam. Muslims only choose what parts of Islam they want to practice. Even if every Muslim in the world voted to not practice some part of Islam, Islam would not change. Islamic doctrine is perfect, eternal and complete and is changeless.

The other problem is that Kafirs do not know what jihad is and think that jihad is only about violence. No, jihad is the struggle to establish Sharia law. It is also a civilizational struggle that includes money, speech and the written word. The Koran, Sira and Hadith all lay out the complete form of jihad.
You must study Islam, not Muslims.
