“The Department of Justice is committed to stopping female genital mutilation in this country,” she added in a statement, “and will use the full power of the law to ensure that no girls suffer such physical and emotional abuse.”

A doctor in Detroit has been charged for performing female genital mutilations. She is an emergency room physician named Jamana Nagarwala. She is facing federal charges.


http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/04/13/detroit-doctor-arrested-for-performing-female-genital-mutilation/

I can only pray that this story is widely publicized. This practice has encroached upon Europe. It is done behind closed doors. In other cases, young girls are sent back to the family's country of origin to have the procedure performed. No doubt some families here have sent their daughters back to the old country for the same purpose. Now this.

These girls are entitled to the same protections we all enjoy here in America. I am heartened that the new DOJ is prosecuting this. I doubt the Obama DOJ would have brought charges.

*Update: The story is indeed getting wide coverage including the New York Times, CNN and foreign outlets including Nagarwala's native India. The below article identifies her as a member of the Dawoodi Bohra sect of Shia Islam, which practices FGM.

"No justice-no peace"


Heather MacDonald, author of the 2016 book, The War on Cops", was invited to speak this week at UCLA on Wednesday and Claremont College on Thursday. Both events were loudly disrupted by Black Lives Matter protesters.

The College Fix has posted voeos of both incidents. (The UCLA event is linked in the below article.)

This is so typical of the know-nothing mentality on our campuses. All it takes is a couple of professional anarchists to show up on campus with bullhorns, and the minds of mush fall in line like a scene out of the Pied Piper of Hamlin.

Rollins College Suspended Student's Letter to His Professor

Hat tip The College Fix

No apple for Prof. Zubari

We have been following the story of a Rollins College student who has been suspended for challenging a (Muslim) professors classroom assertions that Jesus Christ was never crucified. The College Fix has obtained a copy of an email that the student sent to the professor, Areej Zufari.

https://www.thecollegefix.com/post/31885/

I am following the Rollins College campus newspaper, The Sandspur, to see how they treat the story if at all. Thus far, no mention, but if it's a weekly paper, it may be another day or two before their new issue comes out.

The Garland Attack and Some Incredible Assertions

Gary Fouse

http://garyfouse.blogspot.com


In May 2015 two Muslim men drove from Phoenix to Garland, Texas (outside Dallas). Their intent was to attack a Draw Mohammad event and kill as many attendees as they could. Instead, they were shot and killed by security police as they attempted to charge into the facility.

CNN's Anderson Cooper has now come out with a TV presentation this week that alleges that an undercover FBI agent had been involved with the suspects and was actually riding in a car behind them as they arrived at the venue. It is based largely on an interview with an attorney representing a third man believed to be involved in the planning. The attorney says he was provided with FBI documents that divulged the role of an FBI "undercover agent".


http://www.cbsnews.com/news/terrorism-in-garland-texas-what-the-fbi-knew-before-the-2015-attack/

In response to this revelation, Robert Spencer, a noted critic of Islam and one of the co-sponsors of the event, has told an interviewer from Newsmax that, in his opinion, the FBI wanted him and his colleague, Pam Geller dead.

https://www.jihadwatch.org/2017/03/video-robert-spencer-on-newsmaxs-malzberg-fbi-wanted-pamela-geller-and-me-dead-in-garland-jihad-attack

I have no inside information on this, and like everyone else, this is news to me. It is too early to come to a definitive conclusion, but as a retired DEA agent, I do have some immediate reactions.

First of all, when the CBS report refers to "an FBI undercover agent", I don't preclude the possibility that this could actually be an FBI informant. The news media has long had a habit of not differentiating between the two. There is a significant difference.

Secondly, I find it absolutely incredible that the FBI would allow the suspects to get to the convention center and begin the attack without taking them down beforehand at some point when the conspiracy was complete and the case could be proved. This was, in fact, a conspiracy between at least two men. In conspiracy law, the crime is complete when an agreement to break the law has been made and one or more of the co- conspirators commits an overt act (legal or illegal) in furtherance of the conspiracy. Obtaining the weapons would be an example and beginning the journey to Garland would be another. It seems clear that if an FBI agent was  following them in another car, they could have been arrested at any point say when they stopped to eat along the way. If an FBI agent were actually in a following car, there would also be surveilling agents following as well, and the situation would be "under control". Letting it continue to the convention center and allowing the terrorists to alight with their weapons would be totally irresponsible in terms of public safety. Even if the FBI wanted them to reach the venue, it would seem obvious that a massive trap would have been awaiting them. As it was, the terrorists were shot and killed by local security police.

Something clearly doesn't add up here.

Is it possible that the mystery man was actually some sort of informant who had not  alerted the FBI as to what was happening? Given the circumstances, that seems plausible. Use of informants, while necessary, is always risky and must be accompanied by maximum control.

As to Robert Spencer's allegations that the FBI actually wanted him and Geller dead, I have a hard time accepting that. Besides, there were 100 other people inside that building attending the event. Who knows how many would have died if those two men actually got inside the building?

The Face of Angela Merkel's Insane Immigration Policy

https://vladtepesblog.com/2017/03/10/mothers-facebook-post-to-her-son-victim-of-muslim-jihad-attack-in-dusseldorf/

This is the Face of Angela Merkel's insane  immigration policy. His name is Domenico, and he is one of the victims of yesterday's axe attack by a Kosovar asylum seeker at the main train station in Duesseldorf.

Below is the translation of what his mother has put on social media:

This is my son Domenico in the intensive care of the University Clinic…
Amok at the Düsseldorf Main Train Station
He was hit in the head with an axe, from behind… Surgery took Long
The media is downplaying it all
It is terrible and incomprehensible
You are welcome to share this….
I Love You my Son

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

As usual, the mother is correct. The media is downplaying it all. The attacker is described as mentally ill. The police have reported that they have given him his medicine which he had neglected to take. What's next-his release? It seems every time an attack happens, the attacker is described as mentally disturbed. Perhaps, that is the case here, but aside from any mental imbalance, what was the motive for this attack?

Domenico is just another victim not only of Merkel's policy, but the policy of most all the Western Europe governments, as well as the policy of the EU. I guess the Europeans just have to get used to the new multi-culturalism and "cultural enrichment" that the left celebrates.

Academic Crybabies

Gary Fouse

http://garyfouse.blogspot.com


Hat tip Campus Watch



In the world of academia, academic freedom is a concept that professors only apply to themselves and their particular beliefs not to the beliefs of those with whom they disagree. In the world of academia, to disagree with a professor and criticize what they "profess" is an attack, a threat, something that puts their jobs and their very lives in danger. As an example, we now have what I will call the "Gang of 63". When they learned recently that there was a group compiling a list of names of professors students should avoid (if they don't want to be exposed to what PW calls "a radical agenda in lecture halls"), they cried foul-then publicly requested their names be added as some sort of badge of honor. They are accusing Campus Watch of slandering them and threatening them with violence.

http://www.campus-watch.org/correction/115

In the interest of full disclosure, I am not an employee of Campus Watch though some of my articles have been cross-posted there on occasion. Nor am I affiliated with Professor Watch. Nor did I have any part in putting that list together. Having said that, I am familiar with several of the professors whose names appear on the list and have interacted with some of them. Hell, Mark LeVine even accused me of being "slanderous" when I called him an anti-Israel activist to his face in front of an audience. Talk about trying to have it both ways!

The reason you see the image above with the Palestinian flag attached to the crybaby's face is that virtually all of the names I recognize are anti-Israel activists. Here is an example of these "scholars" hysterical language:

"The newly inaugurated U.S. administration has created an atmosphere of violence, racism, Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism. A less discussed aspect of these attacks is on academic freedom. The 2016 election has taken to new extremes the threats to academic freedom. We can see a preview of what this administration intends in their response to the recent cancellations of "talks" by professional provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, who engages in public, cruel harassment of students who are critical of his extremist views, from the lectern through trigger cameras that project students' images without their consent. He then proceeds to taunt them and incite actions against them on the basis of their physical appearance, race, sexuality, and gender. Instead of condemning this kind of incitement, President Trump has threatened to withhold federal funding from UC Berkeley after Yiannopoulos' "talk" was cancelled at UC Berkeley and other UC campuses."

In the interest of full disclosure, they might have said that Yiannopoulos' "talk" at Berkeley was cancelled due to a riot. 

Then there is this scholarly gem:

"This watchlist echoes Horowitz's project, Campus Watch."

As pointed out very effectively by CW, they are not affiliated with David Horowitz or his Freedom Center. If they can't get that right, what does that say about their scholarship in the classroom?

But I am going to put this "California Scholars for Academic Freedom" on my own list. In fact, I am going to give them their own link  at Fousesquawk. Henceforth, you will find them under the heading: Fiction Section.

Omar Abdel Rahman


Omar Abdel Rahman, the so-called Blind Sheikh, has died in a federal prison in North Carolina, where he was serving a life sentence for his role in a conspiracy to blow up New York City landmarks.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/18/us/omar-abdel-rahman-world-trade-center-bombing-plotter-dead/index.html

Here is more on the so-called Blind Sheikh courtesy of the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

http://www.investigativeproject.org/profile/101/omar-abdel-rahman


This man was a dangerous radical when he was living in the Middle East. Somehow he was admitted to our shores where he repaid our hospitality by trying to murder Americans. His radical bent was never a secret. Yet, in 1992, he was hosted at the Islamic Center of Orange County by none other than famed "moderate" imam Muzammil Siddiqi, who translated the Blind Sheikh's guest sermon.

http://www.investigativeproject.org/276/muzammil-the-moderate

It gets worse. In 2012, I attended an open town hall on sharia law at the above mosque. The panel was a who's who of useful idiots including disgraced ex-LASD sheriff Lee Baca (now on trial for corruption), Democratic congresswomen Maxine Waters, Loretta Sanchez and Judy Chu, the US Attorney for Los Angeles, Andre Birotte Jr. and LAPD's chief of counter terror, Michael Downing. Everybody agreed that sharia law was no threat to the US and was I compatible with the US Constitution. When I brought the 1992 visit to the mosque by Abdel Rahman to Downing's attention after the event concluded, his response was: "Well, Gary, you know some people change over time."

This is what we are up against.

How Many Mr. Ayloush?

Gary Fouse

http://garyfouse.blogspot.com

CAIR's Hussam Ayloush


I recall vividly attending a town hall on violent extremism held at the Islamic Center of Orange County in January 2015. Hussam Ayloush, the Southern California director of CAIR, stated that by the government's own statistics "some twenty"American Muslims had gone to join ISIS. (He, of course. must have been omitting those the FBI stopped trying to leave the country.) He then asked why nobody was talking about the "thousands of American Jewish men who have gone to join the Israeli Defense Force killing the people of Gaza".

Of course, Ayloush's numbers were false at the time and have only grown since he made the comment. He did not include those arrested attempting to leave the US. (He also failed to note that we know of not one American Muslim who has gone to Syria or Iraq to fight against ISIS.) The entire issue is relevant given the controversy over President Trump's travel ban against citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries. Many of Ayloush's ilk are asking, "How many Americans have been killed in the US by people coming from those countries?"

If you want to be technical, the answer may well be zero so far. I will not attempt here to research and find every single case to refute that argument though I can cite one honor killing by an Iraqi man in the San Diego area who murdered his wife and tried to blame an Islamophobic intruder.

I could also point out that Libya, another country on the Trump list, is where four Americans were murdered during the attack on the Benghazi consulate.

However, I think the most important rebuttal would be to remind the reader of how many Muslims, either refugees, immigrants, converts, American citizens, or home-grown have been charged with terror plots/attempting to join ISIS or other terror organizations.

According to the Washington Post, 108 people have been charged with ISIS related plots. A total of 58 have been convicted. Keep in mind that ISIS is one of the newest terror organizations as compared to Al Qaeda.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/national/isis-suspects/

"Federal prosecutors have charged 108 men and women around the country in connection with the Islamic State. So far, 58 have been convicted." 

Apparently, that study does not include the Somalia-based terror organization, Al Shabaab. Several US-based Somalis have been charged with plotting to aid or join Al Shabaab, and several have successfully returned to Somalia to link up with them. Though national origin is generally not listed here, I would guess that several have as their national origin the 7 countries on Trump's travel ban. I would also wager that those from Minnesota are of Somali origin since that state has the nation's largest Somali population.

In the below article, 72 convicted of terror charges in the US are identified as originating from the 7 countries on the travel ban.

http://www.libertyheadlines.com/report-72-convicted-terrorism-countries-banned-trump/?AID=7236

In addition, do you remember that recent knife attack at Ohio State University? The attacker was of Somali origin. Fortunately, none of the stabbing victims died.

Do these numbers represent a majority of US-based Muslims? Of course not. They don't have to. One man killed 49 people in a gay night club in Orlando. One married couple (the wife came into the US from Pakistan on a fiance visa) killed 14 in San Bernardino. Nineteen hijackers killed almost 3,000 on 9-11. The list goes on and on. The common thread was motive-jihad.

The University of California Needs an Overhaul

Gary Fouse

http://garyfouse.blogspot.com


This article first appeared in New English Review
Image result for berkeley riot against milo

Wednesday night's riot at the University of California at Berkeley, which forced cancellation of yet another speaking appearance by conservative gay pundit Milo Yiannopoulos, is the final straw. It is now self-evident that the entire University of California administration from its president, Janet Napolitano down to its chancellors needs to be overhauled and replaced.

The UC system is far from being the only American university that has fallen into disrepair, but it may be the worst. To be fair, things were bad when Napolitano took over as president after screwing up the Department of Homeland Security, but under her weak leadership things have gone from terrible to worse.

This past year, I concluded an 18-year-career teaching English as a second language part-time in the UC Irvine Extension, of which I have nothing negative to say. During the past decade, however, I did have a few criticisms of the main campus administration, chiefly for their refusal to address the problem of anti-semitism on campus. That continues to be a problem system wide (as well as nation-wide). While Jewish college students across the nation continue to face anti-semitism and bullying at the hands of the pro-Palestinian crowd, the UC system has accumulated more than its share of complaints. Swastika's have appeared on several UC campuses and pro-Israel events have been disrupted by the brown shirts of Students for Justice in Palestine. In spite of numerous complaints from Jewish students and supporting groups like the AMCHA Initiative, Napolitano and her chancellors either deny the allegations or make cosmetic fixes, which solve nothing. Last year, after much work and struggle by the above groups and in the face of strong opposition, the UC regents passed a revised Statement of Principles Against Intolerance, which specifically addressed anti-semitism. It has proved to be nothing more than a scrap of paper sitting in their files.

In addition, the thuggish elements among the students-aided by professional outside agitators, have made a mockery of free speech when it comes to conservative points of view. What rules on the UC campuses are speech codes and silly notions of trigger warnings, micro-aggressions, and goofy new pronouns in place of traditional English words like she or he. If America's adversaries wanted to turn out an entire generation of uneducated and sniveling Americans, they could not have done any better than our current crop of educators.

Into all this mix arrived a previously obscure young man named Milo Yiannopoulos. A conservative gay man from Britain who works as a Breitbart educator, Yiannopoulos came up with a brilliant marketing shtick called "The Most Dangerous Faggot" tour as he travels from one university campus to another, usually sponsored by the College Republicans. His specialty is poking fun at political correctness as he insults one special interest group after another. Milo is now a rock star thanks to the anarchists and sensitive cupcakes of academia who do everything in their power to shut down his events. Prior to last night's riot at UCB, his appearance at UC Davis had to be cancelled at the last minute. (Just two weeks ago, while speaking at the University of Washington, one leftist from the "Industrial Workers of the World" decided to attack a pro-Trump/Yiannopoulos supporter during a mass protest outside the auditorium. He chose the wrong victim and wound up in the hospital with a gunshot wound. The shooter, who claimed self defense is as yet uncharged.) UCLA has now cancelled Yiannopoulos' Thursday night appearance. The term, "heckler's veto" is no longer sufficient to describe what is happening now. Free speech in our universities is a thing of the past.

It would be comforting to think that the governor, Jerry Brown, and the adults in California would step in and kick the whole bunch of UC leaders out, but then again, we are talking about Jerry Brown and California here. Help is hardly on the way. As it is, UCB Chancellor Nicholas Dirks, under fire for irregularities, is on his way out awaiting the naming of a successor. He has proven to be a feckless chancellor even having an escape hatch built into his office in case of student protests. No doubt he used it last night. In fact, no arrests have even been reported. Napolitano is now battling cancer. While I wish her a speedy recovery, this is an opportune time for her to declare victory and leave. The University of California, like so many other institutions of higher learning, is in bad shape. Unfortunately, changing a culture that has been building since the 1960s will take a long time. President Trump is now talking about taking federal funding away from UCB. I hope he does. Only when the money dries up will these people get the message that the party is coming to an end.

Samma dag som Jerusalem drabbas av ett nytt terrordåd,

I en uppmärksammad artikel i Times of Israel berättar Lindmark
varför han lämnar Sverige och flyttar till Israel.


"The same day that Jerusalem was struck by a new act  of terrorism where four young officer cadets were murdered by an Arab terrorist, the young Swedish Jew Stefan Shaul Lindmark wrote a farewell letter to Foreign Minister Wallstrom. In a remarkable article in The Times of Israel, Lindmark tells why he is leaving Sweden and moving to Israel."

Jihad i Malmo
, a Swedish blog, has posted a letter that a young Swedish Jew has written to Sweden's foreign minister, a woman hostile to Israel. In this letter he eloquently informs her why he is getting out of Sweden and moving to Israel. It is compelling.

http://jihadimalmo.blogspot.se/2017/01/judiskt-liv-har-ingen-framtid-i-sverige.html

According to the number cited in the letter, there are only 15,000 Jews remaining in Sweden, and that number is decreasing as more and more leave the hostile atmosphere of Sweden and its ever-growing Middle Eastern and North African Muslim immigrants.

Enjoy the trade off, Sweden.

I earlier cross-posted a report from The College Fix which describes the backlash that UC Berkeley College Republicans are facing over their sponsoring of an appearance by Milo Yiannopoulos on February 1.

The blog, Campus Reform has more information regarding the on-going campaign of harassment directed at CR.

http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=8646

Coupled with last week's disruption of an appearance by Yiannopoulos at UC Davis as well as the ugly reactions against him in other universities all over the country, it is clear that the concept of free speech in academia is limited to the left. CR chapters all over the country are learning what happens when they invite speakers like Yiannopoulois to campus. It is particularly despicable that now the far left loons on campus have manufactured phony posters alleging that the CR had invited white nationalist Richard Spencer to speak.

And where is that joke of a chancellor Nicholas Dirks? How can UCB tolerate this crap on campus? Physical harassment is not free speech.

As Slaughters Continue, US Is on Guard Against-Islamophobia

Gary Fouse

Hat tip Creeping Sharia

It doesn't seem possible that we in the West could have things so much in reverse, but instead of guarding against further Islamic encroachment, our leaders are determined that we should not think ill of Islam just because people are being slaughtered en masse virtually every day in the name of Allah. Islamophobia is the thing we must guard  against.

This is how it works. Some terrible deed is carried out in America by a jihadist inspired by ISIS or Al Qaeda. Or perhaps, a horrible scene takes place in Europe like Berlin, Brussels or Paris to name a few. Instantly, here in the US, the CAIR bears and their gullible supporters in the media and Justice Department began warning of Islamophobia and impending acts of retribution against innocent Muslims-which don't happen. In fact, most of the reported "hate crimes" like a Muslim woman in hijab being assaulted or insulted turn out to be manufactured hoaxes. Remember that notorious letter sent out to various mosques threatening violence? Not only has the threat not materialized, but we still don't know who the writer was.

The fact is that Jews are far more under the gun than Muslims, yet that is a story that has no legs. The media could care less. The fact is that with rare exceptions, Americans have responded in an exemplary manner to all the horrors of Islamic terror and intolerance. We don't lash out at innocent Muslims, and I have been very clear that it would be un-American to do so. But anybody who thinks there is no threat out there and that all these horrific attacks have nothing to do with Islam is deluding themselves.
