European Churches: Vandalized, Defecated On, and Torched "Every Day"
by Raymond Ibrahim April 14, 2019 at 5:00 am
  • In Germany, four separate churches were vandalized and/or torched in March alone. "In this country," PI-News, a German news site, explained, "there is a creeping war against everything that symbolizes Christianity: attacks on mountain-summit crosses, on sacred statues by the wayside, on churches... and recently also on cemeteries."
  • In virtually every instance of church attacks, authorities and media obfuscate the identity of the vandals. In those rare instances when the Muslim (or "migrant") identity of the destroyers is leaked, the desecraters are then presented as suffering from mental health issues.
  • "Hardly anyone writes and speaks about the increasing attacks on Christian symbols. There is an eloquent silence in both France and Germany about the scandal of the desecrations and the origin of the perpetrators.... Not a word, not even the slightest hint that could in anyway lead to the suspicion of migrants... It is not the perpetrators who are in danger of being ostracized, but those who dare to associate the desecration of Christian symbols with immigrant imports. They are accused of hatred, hate speech and racism." -- PI News, March 24, 2019
Countless churches throughout Western Europe are being vandalized, defecated on, and torched.
In France, two churches are desecrated every day on average. According to PI-News, a German news site, 1,063 attacks on Christian churches or symbols (crucifixes, icons, statues) were registered in France in 2018. This represents a 17% increase compared to the previous year (2017), when 878 attacks were registered— meaning that such attacks are only going from bad to worse.
Among some of the recent desecrations in France, the following took place in just February and March:
  • Vandals plundered Notre-Dame des Enfants Church in Nîmes and used human excrement to draw a cross there; consecrated bread was found thrown outside among garbage.
  • The Saint-Nicolas Church in Houilles was vandalized on three separate occasions in February; a 19th century statue of the Virgin Mary, regarded as "irreparable," was "completely pulverized," said a clergyman; and a hanging cross was thrown to the floor.
  • Vandals desecrated and smashed crosses and statues at Saint-Alain Cathedral in Lavaur, and mangled the arms of a statue of a crucified Christ in a mocking manner. In addition, an altar cloth was burned.
  • Arsonists torched the Church of St. Sulpice in Paris soon after midday mass on Sunday, March 17.
Similar reports are coming out of Germany. Four separate churches were vandalized and/or torched in March alone. "In this country," PI-News explained, "there is a creeping war against everything that symbolizes Christianity: attacks on mountain-summit crosses, on sacred statues by the wayside, on churches... and recently also on cemeteries."
Who is primarily behind these ongoing and increasing attacks on churches in Europe? The same German report offers a hint: "Crosses are broken, altars smashed, Bibles set on fire, baptismal fonts overturned, and the church doors smeared with Islamic expressions like 'Allahu Akbar.'"
Another German report from November 11, 2017 noted that in the Alps and Bavaria alone, around 200 churches were attacked and many crosses broken: "Police are currently dealing with church desecrations again and again. The perpetrators are often youthful rioters with a migration background." Elsewhere they are described as "young Islamists."
Sometimes, sadly, in European regions with large Muslim populations, there seems to be a concomitant rise in attacks on churches and Christian symbols. Before Christmas 2016, in the North Rhine-Westphalia region of Germany, where more than a million Muslims reside, some 50 public Christian statues (including those of Jesus) were beheaded and crucifixes broken.
In 2016, following the arrival in Germany of another million mostly Muslim migrants, a local newspaper reported that in the town of Dülmen, "'not a day goes by' without attacks on religious statues in the town of less than 50,000 people, and the immediate surrounding area."
In France it also seems that where the number of Muslim migrants increases, so do attacks on churches. A January 2017 study revealed that, "Islamist extremist attacks on Christians" in France rose by 38 percent, going from 273 attacks in 2015 to 376 in 2016; the majority occurred during Christmas season and "many of the attacks took place in churches and other places of worship."
As a typical example, in 2014, a Muslim man committed "major acts of vandalism" inside a historic Catholic church in Thonon-les-Bains. According to a report (with pictures) he "overturned and broke two altars, the candelabras and lecterns, destroyed statues, tore down a tabernacle, twisted a massive bronze cross, smashed in a sacristy door and even broke some stained-glass windows." He also "trampled on" the Eucharist.
In virtually every instance of church attacks, authorities and media obfuscate the identity of the vandals. In those rare instances when the Muslim (or "migrant") identity of the destroyers is leaked, the perpetrators are then presented as suffering from mental health issues. As the recent PI-News report says:
"Hardly anyone writes and speaks about the increasing attacks on Christian symbols. There is an eloquent silence in both France and Germany about the scandal of the desecrations and the origin of the perpetrators.... Not a word, not even the slightest hint that could in anyway lead to the suspicion of migrants... It is not the perpetrators who are in danger of being ostracized, but those who dare to associate the desecration of Christian symbols with immigrant imports. They are accused of hatred, hate speech and racism.

THE TRUTH BEHIND THE BORDER WALL RESISTANCE
It’s all about power.
     Donald Trump is not the first president who has railed against rampant illegal immigration. He is not the first to support the building of a wall/barricade along the Mexican border. It is not just a Donald Trump issue. It’s an historical American issue supported by both sides of the aisle over the years. Until now.
     Hmmm.
     In 2006, the Secure Fence Act was passed by congress allowing for the construction of nearly 700 miles of border barriers, i.e., walls, fences. The vote passed in the senate, 80-19.  Could that happen today? Among those who voted for the bill were Senators Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer. Anyone can check Youtube and find several examples of those notables on the left who, 10-20 years ago, made speeches in support of a border barrier.
     According to the Department of Homeland Security, half of the 2000 mile Mexican border is already protected from mass migration due to terrain. With roughly 700 miles complete, that still leaves 300 or more miles of open borders that need fixing or else the caravans will continue and illegal immigrants will never cease swarming into our country.
     The question arises, why are political progressives so intent now on preventing additional security measures to keep illegal immigrants from teeming into the United States? After all, this is a security problem that affects all taxpaying Americans of all colors, nationalities and political leanings. It also impacts economy, education, health matters, gang activity, drug trafficking, sex crimes, courts and prisons. That’s not to mention the job market when illegals are hired for farming, construction and other projects at below minimum wages. Historically, that fattens income for the rich while undercutting jobs from law-abiding American workers including “legal” immigrants, by the millions.
     Union leader, Cesar Chavez, founder of the National Farm Workers Union in 1962, a devout liberal-progressive of his time, was adamant about stopping illegal immigration, because it infringed on the rights and betterment of “legal” immigrants who came to America.
     During his presidency, Bill Clinton initiated enforcement action against employers who would not screen immigrants via e-Verify systems. He also signed an executive order that would ban contracts to companies that hired illegals. During his SOTU address in 1996, he sounded more like Donald Trump. “Americans are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public services they use impose burdens on our taxpayers.”
     In comments to the press, 2005, then-Senator  Barack Obama, stated, “We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully.”
     Progressives are singing a different tune in 2018, allegedly because they dislike the current president. Or, is there a more sinister motive?    
     In 1980, California’s voters overwhelmingly elected conservative Ronald Reagan for president, as they did in 1988 for George H.W. Bush.  Less than thirty years later, California’s Democrat populations outvoted the Republican candidate by three million votes in 2016. What has changed?
     Demographics changed. Culture changed. With that, voters in many states have swung far to the left. Immigration, legal and illegal, has transformed the political landscape in traditional red states like California, Arizona, Nevada and Texas to mostly blue.      
     State and local politicians are luring illegal immigrants, including criminals, to cities that are declared as “sanctuary.” Some mayors and governors have approved of law breaking activity. Without a doubt, illegals are at the voting booths casting illegal ballots, because all they need is a driver’s license and no proof of eligibility.
     Greedy politicians are sowing the seeds for politically transforming the nation to their side by farming Democrats. They just need to protect illegal immigrants and keep those babies coming who eventually become automatic citizens, Democrats of course, and future voters by the millions. They are all part of the revolution, whether they know it or not. The plan is brilliant and it is working. National dominance is just a matter of time.
     Is it any wonder that the Schumer/Pelosi/Obama wing of America, now sing a different tune than they did years ago. Supporting illegals and protecting criminals has nothing to do with compassion. It’s all about stacking the deck with future Democrats. It’s all about power.
     Handing out welcome mats, freebees, welfare, and criminal justice protections to illegals have paid off at the voting booths. The Democratic Party smells political victory in the future.
     Who’s next? Venezuelans are starved for freedom. So are others. There are dirt-poor people all over South America, Africa and Asia, all they need is transportation to get here. The slippery slope is not far off. When that happens, America will never be the same. The radical left will conquer and the constitution will not survive. When we older folks are dead and gone, more of the likes of Orcasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib will rise to power. Socialism will grow, capitalism will fall. Campaigns will begin to amend the constitution, particularly as it pertains to freedoms of speech and rights to bear arms.
     We are the lucky ones, having lived in the best of times.

The Deceiver’s Disciple,
by Tabitha Korol

Muslims lie not because they are liars by nature but by choice. Systematic lying as a religious policy is deadly, and if our politicians do not understand this, thousands could die. – Don Boys, Ph.D.

The mission of the jihadi/jihada (one who engages in holy “war with non-Muslims to establish the religion”) is to bring Islamic law, sharia, to the world, whether through peaceful or violent means, and Ilhan Omar has dutifully begun her vocation for Allah, who is described in the Quran as the greatest deceiver of them all.  It goes on to say that ALL deception belongs completely to Allah, that Allah actually raises wicked individuals to deceive and scheme, and commands people to do evil so that he may then have reason to destroy them – for Islamic supremacy.  Mohammed led by example when he broke promises and treaties with the Jewish tribes, Banu Qaynuqa (624), Nadir (625) and Quraysh (627), and subsequently beheaded all the men, captured and enslaved the women and children, and enriched himself and his troops with the towns’ bounties.  We must therefore recognize that Omar is mandated by religious doctrine to emulate Mohammed’s deception, using any means possible against her victims to advance the Islamic ideology.  “When hate crimes against [her] and [her] followers don’t exist, they have to be invented,” to deflect attention from the jihadi onto the Muslims as victims.

Since her installation as a member of Congress, Omar has repeatedly censured Israel and Israeli and American Jews, making antisemitism acceptable and freely spoken by the re-awakening antisemitic community.  Her allegations are a stealth technique of projection, as when the subject attributes his own unpleasant traits, impulses or ideas to another.  For instance, Omar accuses Israelis of “abuse against women,” “apartheid” and “occupation,” distinctly Muslim deeds.  She accuses Jews of dual loyalty to Israel, but not people of, say, the Palestinian territories, Somalia, Iran, Central and South America, who might donate their earnings to provide financial assistance to their homelands.  Lest we forget, these three Muslim lands are known supporters of terrorism, whereas Israel is known to be the only democratic country in the Middle East, one of America’s most steadfast allies, and one that provides services that benefit people throughout the world – and this is the one she denigrates and boycotts.  There can be no other valid reason except the centuries-nurtured visceral hate.

Ilhan Omar’s hostility is clearly defined by Islamic law as against Judaism, a religion that follows the Torah and Commandments for morality over evil.  When Mohammed’s new religion was rejected by Jews and Christians for such pagan superstitions as circling the Ka’bah, and for its violent proselytizing, to name just two reasons, he turned their prayer direction to Mecca and against those who rebuked him, slaughtering thousands and seizing their treasure.  It is this resentment that was instilled into Mohammed’s followers.  They are removed from every aspect of individual freedom and bound to carry his millstone of hate and envy.     

And here is the tactic.  While Omar attempts to delegitimize the Jewish community’s allegiance to America, and her coreligionists work to delegitimize the Jewish bond to Israel (even to destroying holy relics dating back 3,000 years), she hides her own history and failings, that she will never assimilate, is not to be trusted, and will work to delegitimize our Constitution with sharia. 

“Ultimately we [Muslims] can never be fully citizens of this country…because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country.” – Ihsan Bagby, leader of CAIR-KY, president of its board and Islamic Studies professor at the University of Kentucky, 1991.

“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land.” – Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch, 2013. 

Islam’s blame/shame culture is why this jihada will never admit to and apologize for her actions. Omar scarcely walks back her numerous canards when she immediately restates her free speech prerogatives to criticize Israel’s policies, using old antisemitic myths about Jews and money, as though Islam’s oil wealth has had no influence on our western banking, the media, our lower grades and universities, and indeed the entire United Nations.  Her vague apologies have never actually acknowledged her wrongdoing or responsibility, and she would obviously run a repeat performance.  She has also used the infamous Muslim Brotherhood maneuver, inserting the shrewd, devious warning that she must never be condemned “for being Muslim,” the Islamophobic threat intended to intimidate any who would contest her word.  She is not naïve.  Highly adept in her cunning, she is guilty of a fervent allegiance to Islam that supersedes any loyalty to America and, regrettably, she appears to have completely hoodwinked the inexcusably credulous Nancy Pelosi.  


"The goal of Islam is to rule the entire world and submit all of mankind to the faith of Islam. Any nation or power that gets in the way of that goal, Islam will fight and destroy." – Islamic Law and Constitution, pg. 262)

In the late 18th century, the Muslim Ambassador Adja explained that the Quran  gives Muslims the right and duty to make war against all, make slaves of prisoners, and that every Musselman who is slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.   The Wahhabi-type Muslim radicals, named for the Barbary Pirates from the Barbary Coast of North Africa, waged terrorist attacks through two decades.  After a four-year war, a treaty was signed to end the aggression in 1805. 

Yesterday’s Islamic Barbary pirates are today’s Islamic Somalian pirates from the same region, with the same pronouncements of jihad against the West.  It now includes those who participate in “large scale mass migrations [that] become invasions,” known as hijrah. It overtook the Middle East, is prevalent through much of Europe, and is with us now, which is why the Arab countries refuse to take in their own refugees.  Aided by the Left, the goal is to overtax the economy, tear down the wealthiest nations, redraw demographics and culture, and secure positions where they can work to overturn our civility and government. 

Ilhan Omar, a Somalian Muslim, took her oath of office on the Quran, as did Rashida Tlaib, the “Palestinian” who wrapped herself in the Palestinian flag.  In so doing, they pledged their allegiance not to the United States of America, but to Allah.  Additionally, Omar is suspected of having ties to the radical Muslim Brotherhood (MB), and herein lies the projection connection.   While she accuses Jews of duplicity, we must always reinterpret what the devotee of Islam says, particularly one who has been a keynote speaker for the IRUSA (Islamic Relief USA), the largest, global, Muslim fundraising group with terrorist ties, and CAIR (Council of American Islamic Relations), listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist fundraising operation in US history.  As MB affiliates, these women seem to be working to support subversive factions aligned to destroyAmerica and Western civilization.

Pompeo repudiates Obama Mideast policy, takes aim at Iran By Matthew Lee (https://apnews.com/90d2825efb9b48c3a6ca2aa9a82a15eb)

CAIRO (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered a scathing rebuke of the Obama administration’s Mideast policies on Thursday, accusing the former president of “misguided” and “wishful” thinking that diminished America’s role in the region, harmed its longtime friends and emboldened its main foe: Iran.

In a speech to the American University in Cairo, Pompeo unloaded on President Donald Trump’s predecessor, saying he was naive and timid when confronted with challenges posed by the revolts that convulsed the Middle East, including Egypt, beginning in 2011. Pompeo laid the blame notably on a vision outlined by President Barack Obama in a speech he gave in Cairo in 2009 in which he spoke of “a new beginning” for U.S. relations with countries in the Arab and Muslim world.

“Remember: It was here, here in this very city, another American stood before you,” Pompeo told an invited audience of Egyptian officials, foreign diplomats and students. “He told you that radical Islamist terrorism does not stem from ideology. He told you 9/11 led my country to abandon its ideals, particularly in the Middle East. He told you that the United States and the Muslim world needed ‘a new beginning.’ The results of these misjudgments have been dire.”

“In falsely seeing ourselves as a force for what ails the Middle East, we were timid about asserting ourselves when the times — and our partners — demanded it,” Pompeo said, without mentioning the former president by name.

Pompeo’s speech came on the third leg of a nine-nation Mideast tour aimed at reassuring America’s Arab partners that the Trump administration is not walking away from the region amid confusion and concern over plans to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria.
Former Obama administration officials rejected Pompeo’s assertions as petty, political and weak. They said the speech pandered to authoritarian leaders and ignored rights violations that Obama had called out.

“That this administration feels the need, nearly a decade later, to take potshots at an effort to identify common ground between the Arab world and the West speaks not only to the Trump administration’s pettiness but also to its lack of a strategic vision for America’s role in the region and its abdication of America’s values,” National Security Action group, a group of former officials, said in a statement.

Rob Malley, who was Obama’s national security council director for the Middle East and is now at the International Crisis Group, said hearing Pompeo’s speech was like “like listening to someone from a parallel universe” in which the region’s shortcomings were ignored.

“In that parallel universe, the Arab public probably will receive it enthusiastically,” he said. “Back on planet earth, they will see it for what it is: a self-congratulatory, delusional depiction of the Trump administration’s Middle East policy.”

Pompeo blamed the previous administration’s approach to the Mideast for the ills that consume it now, particularly the rise of the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria and Iran’s increasing assertiveness, which he said was a direct result of sanctions relief, since rescinded by the Trump administration, granted to it under the 2015 nuclear deal.

He said Obama ignored the growth of the Iranian-backed Hezbollah movement in Lebanon to the detriment of Israel’s security and not doing enough to push back on Iran-supported rebels in Yemen.
Since Trump’s election, however, Pompeo claimed this was all changing.

“The good news is this: The age of self-inflicted American shame is over, and so are the policies that produced so much needless suffering,” he said. “Now comes the real ‘new beginning.’ In just 24 months, actually less than two years, the United States under President Trump has reasserted its traditional role as a force for good in this region, because we’ve learned from our mistakes.”
In the speech entitled “A Force for Good: America’s Reinvigorated Role in the Middle East,” Pompeo extolled the Trump administration’s actions across the region cementing ties with traditional, albeit authoritarian, friendly governments, taking on the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria and imposing tough new sanctions on Iran.

“President Trump has reversed our willful blindness to the danger of the regime and withdrew from the failed nuclear deal, with its false promises,” Pompeo said. Since withdrawing from the nuclear deal last year, the administration has steadily ratcheted up pressure on Tehran and routinely accuses the nation of being the most destabilizing influence in the region. It has vowed to increase the pressure until Iran halts what U.S. officials describe as its “malign activities” throughout the Mideast and elsewhere, including support for rebels in Yemen, anti-Israel groups and Syrian President Bashar Assad.

“The nations of the Middle East will never enjoy security, achieve economic stability, or advance the dreams of its peoples if Iran’s revolutionary regime persists on its current course,” Pompeo said.
