Violent multicultural robber in Britain

A thug who threatened two pensioners with a machete during a terrifying robbery in their own home has been jailed for ten years.

Scientist Smile broke into the couple's property in Merry Hill in the West Midlands, with two accomplices earlier this year on July 6.  After gaining access to the house via a bathroom window, the three men disturbed a 60-year-old woman who had got out of bed to go to the toilet around 12.15am.

Wolverhampton Crown Court heard that the raiders then dragged the petrified homeowner around the house in her dressing gown back to her bedroom.

They then woke the woman's sleeping husband, also aged 60, by punching him in the face and demanding gold and the location of the safe.

The couple were also threatened with a machete before the thugs fled with just £100, bank cards and a mobile phone.

West Midlands Police launched an investigation and arrested Smile, aged 20, at his home in Handsworth, Birmingham, on July 14 after tracking a stolen mobile phone, which linked him to the crime.

He admitted one count of robbery at a previous hearing and was jailed for ten-and-a-half years at Wolverhampton Crown Court.

After the case Detective Constable Nick Taylor, from Wolverhampton CID, who investigated the raid, said: 'This was a violent and terrifying attack on a couple in their own home.

'Both the occupants of the house were assaulted as their attackers clearly believed there were items of significant value inside the house but ultimately fled with very little.

'This is a significant sentence for a man who showed no mercy in his determination to get what he wanted.  'Hopefully the sentence offers some comfort to his victims whilst sending a message that this kind of crime will not be tolerated, and comes with lengthy sentences.'

Detectives are still trying to track down the other two men involved in the attack.


NCAA to Launch ‘Think Tank’ to Promote LGBT Participation in College Athletics

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) plans to launch a new “think tank” designed to “establish best practices and policies so college athletes and coaches can fully participate in their chosen sport regardless of religious beliefs, sexual orientation, and gender identity or expression.”

During a meeting Tuesday and Wednesday entitled “Seeking Common Ground: Creating a Respectful Athletic Climate for Athletes and Coaches of All Religious Perspectives, Sexual Orientation, and Gender Identity or Expression,” the NCAA will “develop the first-ever suggested guidelines so faith-based schools, public schools, and private secular schools across the country can provide inclusive and respectful athletic environments,” according to a press release on the event distributed by the National Center for Lesbian Rights and the LGBT Sports Coalition.

The release said that the think tank is “comprised of leaders from faith-based colleges, public colleges, private secular colleges, LGBT organizations, religious organizations, and sports.”

It states the organization will be led by Nevin Caple of Br{ache The Silence, Karen Morrison of the NCAA Office of Inclusion, Helen Carroll of the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR), and Dr. Pat Griffin, professor emerita at University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

Other participants include Mike Alden, director of athletics at the University of Missouri, Brent Childers, executive director of Faith in America, and Joe Bednash, director of athletics, physical education, and recreation at Yeshiva University, according to the press release.

“One of the great appeals of participation in collegiate sports is that student-athletes from diverse backgrounds and identities, including religion and spirituality, come together to compete as a team,” Carroll said in a statement. “When a team performs at its best, every individual is respected and the differences they bring to the competitive experience are valued enabling team members to focus more completely on achieving individual and team competitive goals.”

The think tank is being funding through a grant from the LGBT Sports Coalition, which according to its Facebook page was created in 2013 and is made up of 30 organizations and individuals “committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in sports.”

“Our vision is to create a sports world where LGBT people can participate openly and fully without discrimination based on their sexual orientation or gender identity/expression,” the Facebook page stated.

“Our mission is to end anti-LGBT bias and discrimination in sports at all levels of participation,” the Facebook page stated.

The announcement stated that the think tank will produce a report of its ideas in the fall of 2015.


The Multipronged Attack on Israel

In the international effort to undermine Israel every avenue of attack from the military to the cultural is being employed. The Arab world is continually stirred to a frenzy pitch on imaginary or exaggerated threats. Palestinian Authority President Abbas (seemingly president for life) spread the unfounded incendiary rumor that Israeli settlers were "desecrating" Al-Aqsa Mosque and noting "we must stop them (the settlers) from entering by any means possible." But there isn't a scintilla of evidence that this claim is true?

When Mahmoud Abbas maintained that Jerusalem should be inundated with massive Muslim tourism in order "to preserve its Muslim nature," Sheikh Qaradawi repudiated this idea arguing instead that visiting Jerusalem is forbidden so long as it is under Israeli occupation; "Jerusalem must be liberated by force and not by ‘tourism'." As al Qaeda sees it "Jerusalem is the capital of the imminently approaching Islamic Caliphate."

These threats and the ever present hostile rhetoric create hateful responses. An intifada or the signs of it are breaking out in Jerusalem. Hundreds of young Palestinians have been arrested for the use of "cold weaponry," such as stones, Molotov cocktails and light explosives. All of the assailants exhort the slogan of "popular resistance" preached to them by the Palestinian Authority President Abbas, even though those in the Obama administration insist on calling him "a moderate."

None of these recent outbursts is surprising after Abbas' speech in the United Nations in which he accused Israel of waging a "war of genocide" in the Gaza Strip. Needless to say, Abbas did not mention the thousands of rockets fired into Israel before war commenced.

On October 22 Chaya Zissel Braun, a three month old infant, was killed when a Palestinian man slammed his vehicle into a crowd at a light rail stop in Jerusalem. Nine people were injured, three seriously and one woman died from her injuries. Hamas took credit for this heinous act.

Forty eight hours before the attack, Abbas announced that any Palestinian who is involved in property transactions with "hostile countries" (read: Israel) would be punished by "life imprisonment with hard labor." Incitement is a way of life for the P.A. and Hamas and unless it is curtailed there will be other terrorist attacks.

But this internal war and exogenous pressure is not the only way the enemies of Israel exert pressure.

An international movement to sever Israel from commercial activity and cultural exchange is well under way. The BDS [Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions] movement is a systematic effort to demonize and delegitimize the state of Israel. Front organizations for the Muslim Brotherhood such as CAIR and the Muslim Student Association have gained a foothold on many university campuses. In fact, they are often so successful that Jewish groups such as several Hillels have fallen for the rhetorical argument. This cultural assault continues unabated with many faculty groups censuring Israel and refusing to engage in conferences or exchange with Israeli scholars.

In banning Israel from the normal intercourse of state and non-state activity, the Muslim activists are trying to create an environment in which Israel is regarded as a pariah, a state isolated from the international community.

Israel is clearly up against it as has always been the case. Yet it maintains its resolve through a combination of military strength and unusual solidarity and morale, qualities attributed to military service. Truth is on Israel's side, a point many do not understand.

It is a bastion of individual freedom in a sea of totalitarian control. Admittedly as Mark Twain noted, "A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." Israel must contend with lies daily, but its shoes are on and it faces the struggle with a stout heart.


ISIS are the true Muslims

Joseph Allen Kozuh

For the past 30 years, both our Liberal and Conservative leaders have been telling us that modern-day Islam is a peaceful Religion. Today, we are being told that ISIS is NOT representative of Islam.

However, a review of history tells us that ISIS is certifiably Islamic. It is orthodox, fundamentalist Islam. ISIS is true to the Quran and the Hadith. The beliefs and strategies of ISIS are based on the very actions of Muhammad himself and on the actions of his immediate disciples. It was BY THE SWORD that Islam created one of the fastest-growing empires in the history of the world, and the very largest empire ever ... !!!

Islam swept through the Arabian Peninsula immediately after the death of Muhammad by emulating his savagery. His example was to kill all male opponents, rape their wives and daughters, and enslaving their sons; he had done this in conquering the Jewish city of Medina.

As Islam spread into Africa, Europe and Asia, Islam became the largest empire in the history of the world, both in land mass captured and in peoples under its rule. Islam waged its wars via fast-moving, cavalry-style armies of a few thousand that would kill, loot, rape and burn everything in their path to strike fear into the minds and hearts of their victims. Beheading was common and traditional. Taking hostages is a long-standing Islamic tradition.

In India alone, the Hindu population lost some 80 million lives during the 500-year Islamic siege. When identifying the world’s greatest HOLOCAUST, the innocent victims of Islam, easily surpass the innocent victims of Mao and Stalin and Hitler.

Islam conquered by the sword. The only choice enemies were ever given was to convert, die or serve in a form of SLAVERY known as dhimmitude.

So, how is ISIS a departure from the bloody jihadist Islam of the past? You cannot read the history of the spread of Islam without recognizing the crystal-clear parallels between what those successful armies of the past did and what ISIS is doing today. ISIS looks like, sounds like, walks like, and smells like Islam’s conquering armies of the past:

Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.
