PARK SLOPE, BROOKLYN, NEW YORK CITY HOSTS "DRAG QUEEN STORY HOURS" FOR CHILDREN 
AT PUBLIC LIBRARIES
BY HEATHER CLARK
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
 BROOKLYN, N.Y. — “Who wants to be a drag 
queen when they grow up?” That’s the question a man dressed as a woman 
recently asked children attending “Drag Queen Story Hour” (DQSH) at a 
public library in New York.
Since last fall, the Brooklyn Public Library in Park Slope has been offering the storytime for children, bringing in various drag queens to read children’s books about homosexuality, gender identity and “non-conformity,” and “general youth discomfort.”
It’s one of several cities across the country—including San Francisco and Los Angeles—who have signed on to the program, created by Michelle Tea of Radar Productions.
“DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models,” the website for the effort reads.

Last Saturday, a man who dresses as a woman and identifies as “Lil Hot Mess” appeared at the Brooklyn Public Library in a silver sequin dress smathered with rainbow stickers. He read the book “Worm Loves Worm”—a story about “marriage equality”—to the group of children and their parents.
Following the reading, he led the children in a song and dance, singing, “The hips on the drag queen go swish, swish, swish” and “The heels on the drag queen go higher, higher.”
Kate Savage, a representative at the library, praised the event as being “fantastic.”

“[I]t addresses all of these issues of gender fluidity and self-acceptance and all these topics that are real,” she told the Associated Press.
However, the idea has also been met with concern and dismay.
“It’s not getting pushed on children, they said. Now they’ve got drag queens asking them directly, ‘Who wants to be a drag queen when you grow up?’ Indoctrination is never cool,” one commenter wrote.
“Why on earth would you expose impressionable minds to someone who is obviously mentally confused?” another asked. “We should be reinforcing gender identity and not adding to the chaos of this very mixed-up world. You are either born male or female; there is no gray area.”
“You have got to be kidding me. You can’t talk about Jesus, but you can teach from the Koran and now this garbage, which a majority of American families are against!” a third wrote.
In addition to the Park Slope location, the event has been held at the Aguilar Branch Library, the New York Public Library, the Tompkins Square Library, and the Hudson Park Library in the city, as well as the Humboldt County Library in Eureka, California.
In San Francisco, the program is part of a wider effort called “Queering the Castro,” according to the San Francisco Gate.
“The Castro is predominantly a white gay men’s space now,” Radar Executive Director Delgado Lopera told the outlet. “This project is about taking back the radically queer roots of the neighborhood. With art and literature, we’re doing a series of interventions and bringing in other queer folks into that space.”

  MRCTV Profile: Who Is Linda Sarsour, Really?
Published on Feb 17, 2017
Linda Sarsour is one of the women who organized the Women’s March on Washington back in January. She is being championed as a beacon of light for women’s rights and a new leader of the modern feminist movement.

Sarsour has been endorsed by the likes of Amnesty International, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Black Lives Matter (BLM), Sen. Bernie Sanders, Rep. Keith Ellison, Van Jones, Sally Kohn, Susan Sarandon, Mark Ruffalo, Shaun King and Russell Simmons.

But who is Linda Sarsour, really? Some interesting facts and statements from and about her can be unearthed with some digging.


SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2017/05/linda-sarsour-muhammad-was-human-rights-activist-feminist-first-victim-of-islamophobia;
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
 
“War is deceit,” said Muhammad, and the anti-Semitic, pro-Sharia Muslim “feminist” Linda Sarsour was listening.
1. Muhammad was a feminist? In reality, the Qur’an taught that men are superior to women and should beat those from whom they “fear disobedience”: “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34
Muhammad’s child bride, Aisha, says in a hadith that Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: ‘Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?’” — Sahih Muslim 2127
The Qur’an likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills: “Your women are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth as you will” — Qur’an 2:223
It declares that a woman’s testimony is worth half that of a man: “Get two witnesses, out of your own men, and if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as you choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her” — Qur’an 2:282
It allows men to marry up to four wives, and have sex with slave girls also: “If you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, marry women of your choice, two or three or four; but if you fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly, then only one, or one that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice” — Qur’an 4:3
It rules that a son’s inheritance should be twice the size of that of a daughter: “Allah directs you as regards your children’s inheritance: to the male, a portion equal to that of two females” — Qur’an 4:11
It allows for marriage to pre-pubescent girls, stipulating that Islamic divorce procedures “shall apply to those who have not yet menstruated” — Qur’an 65:4
Islamic law stipulates that a man’s prayer is annulled if a dog or a woman passes in front of him as he is praying. “Narrated ‘Aisha: The things which annul the prayers were mentioned before me. They said, “Prayer is annulled by a dog, a donkey and a woman (if they pass in front of the praying people).” I said, ‘You have made us (i.e. women) dogs.’ I saw the Prophet praying while I used to lie in my bed between him and the Qibla. Whenever I was in need of something, I would slip away. for I disliked to face him.” — Sahih Bukhari 1.9.490
Another hadith depicts Muhammad saying that the majority of the inhabitants of hell are women:
“I looked into Paradise and I saw that the majority of its people were the poor. And I looked into Hell and I saw that the majority of its people are women.” — Sahih Bukhari 3241; Sahih Muslim 2737
When asked about this, he explained:
“I was shown Hell and I have never seen anything more terrifying than it. And I saw that the majority of its people are women.” They said, “Why, O Messenger of Allah?” He said, “Because of their ingratitude (kufr).” It was said, “Are they ungrateful to Allah?” He said, “They are ungrateful to their companions (husbands) and ungrateful for good treatment. If you are kind to one of them for a lifetime then she sees one (undesirable) thing in you, she will say, ‘I have never had anything good from you.’” — Sahih Bukhari 1052
And in another hadith:
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) went out to the musalla (prayer place) on the day of Eid al-Adha or Eid al-Fitr. He passed by the women and said, ‘O women! Give charity, for I have seen that you form the majority of the people of Hell.’ They asked, ‘Why is that, O Messenger of Allah?’ He replied, ‘You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religious commitment than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.’ The women asked, ‘O Messenger of Allah, what is deficient in our intelligence and religious commitment?’ He said, ‘Is not the testimony of two women equal to the testimony of one man?’ They said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Is it not true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?’ The women said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her religious commitment.’” — Sahih Bukhari 304
Another statement attributed to Muhammad: “If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning.” — Sahih Bukhari 4.54.460
2. Muhammad was an animal rights activist? Do dogs count as animals? Islam hates dogs: “Once Gabriel promised the Prophet (that he would visit him, but Gabriel did not come) and later on he said, ‘We, angels, do not enter a house which contains a picture or a dog.’” — Sahih Bukhari 4.54.50
“Abdullah (b. Umar) (Allah be pleased with them) reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) ordered the killing of dogs and we would send (men) in Medina and its corners and we did not spare any dog that we did not kill, so much so that we killed the dog that accompanied the wet she-camel belonging to the people of the desert.” — Sahih Muslim 3811
“Ibn Mughaffal reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) ordered killing of the dogs, and then said: What about them, i. e. about other dogs? and then granted concession (to keep) the dog for hunting and the dog for (the security) of the herd, and said: When the dog licks the utensil, wash it seven times, and rub it with earth the eighth time.” — Sahih Muslim 551
3. Muhammad was a human rights activist? Do Jews count as humans? The Qur’an depicts the Jews as fabricating things and falsely ascribing them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181, 5:64); loving to listen to lies (5:41); disobeying Allah and never observing his commands (5:13); disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); and more. It tells Muslims that Jews will be their worst enemies (5:82) and that they’re under Allah’s curse (9:30), and that Muslims must wage war against and subjugate them under the hegemony of Sharia, denying them basic rights (9:29).
4. Muhammad was the first victim of “Islamophobia”? Isn’t that putting the cart before the horse? Why would anyone have disliked Muhammad other than because of what he said and did? Might statements of his such as these, attributed to him in canonical ahadith, have contributed to this climate of “Islamophobia”?
“I have been made victorious through terror.” — Sahih Bukhari 4:52.220
“Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war…When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them…. If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them.” — Sahih Muslim 4294
“I have been commanded to fight against people so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah, and he who professed it was guaranteed the protection of his property and life on my behalf except for the right affairs rest with Allah.” — Sahih Muslim 30
“May Allah curse the Jews and Christians for they built the places of worship at the graves of their Prophets.” — Sahih Bukhari 1.8.427

Trump views exhibit on religious tolerance in Saudi Arabia, which allows only Islam
BY ROBERT SPENCER
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
 
What a comic opera absurdity. Did President Trump ask King Salman where the churches and synagogues and Hindu temples were in Saudi Arabia? Did he ask the sinister little king how his exhibition of tolerance and coexistence among different faiths squared with the Saudi Grand Mufti’s calling for the demolition of churches? Did he ask Salman about Muhammad’s order as recorded in a hadith: “I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim.” (Sahih Muslim 19.4366)? Did he request, as a foreign head of state, the honor of being given a tour of Mecca, including a look inside the Ka’aba, and then ask how the fact that he is not allowed to enter Mecca since he is not a Muslim squared with this claim of “tolerance and coexistence among different faiths”?
Of course he didn’t. He went along with the charade, as Bush and Obama would have done. Who knows, he may yet praise Islam’s glorious tradition of tolerance while he is still in the Kingdom of the Two Holy Places. It looks as if he has fallen headlong into the swamp, and the hungry gators have gathered around for a good meal.

 While Haters are Busy Hating, Trump is Busy Making $380 Billion in Business Deals in Saudi Arabia
  Trump jumps into the swamp, extends 
“worst deal ever,” renews sanctions relief 
for Islamic Republic of Iran
BY ROBERT SPENCER

Here’s an idea: let’s elect a President who is really a Washington outsider. Not just a politician who says he is, but a real outsider, but one with experience in making deals and real business acumen, combined with fierce patriotism, street smarts, and the right instincts on what must be done to make America great again. Someone who will promise to repair some of the immense damage that has been done domestically and internationally over the last few decades by the political elites. Someone who would, say, cancel the disastrous Iran deal and stop making concessions to the Islamic Republic of Iran, and refusing all further negotiations or concessions until they stop their genocidal rhetoric. Someone who would, in short, drain the swamp.
I know, I know, it’s a pipe dream. But you never know. Maybe it could happen in 2020.
“Iran nuclear: Trump extends Obama’s ‘worst deal ever,'” BBC, May 17, 2017:
Donald Trump’s White House has renewed sanctions relief for Iran, despite the US president’s past criticism.
The easing of sanctions is part of a crucial nuclear deal brokered in 2015 under then-President Barack Obama with five other world powers.
Mr Trump has described the landmark agreement as the “worst deal ever”.
However, the US Treasury issued fresh sanctions against specific officials and a Chinese business with links to Iran’s missile programme.
The move means that sanctions preventing any US companies selling to or dealing with Iran will remain suspended for the time being.
In return, Iran has pledged to restrict its nuclear activities, reducing its uranium enrichment, plutonium production plans, and allowing inspectors access to facilities.
The new sanctions from the Treasury are much more specific in scope, targeting two senior Iranian defence officials and suppliers of missile equipment, in apparent retaliation for a recent missile test, and for Iran’s support of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria.
US citizens and entities are now banned from dealing with the officials and companies involved.
However, the White House stopped short of failing to renew the waivers on more widespread sanctions, which are not permanent and were due to expire this week.
This is the first time Mr Trump has been faced with the issue, after former President Obama renewed the agreement shortly before he left office.
Mr Trump has consistently warned Iran over its missile activity, and has criticised the terms of the deal made by Mr Obama – at one point claiming his “number one priority” if elected would be “to dismantle the disastrous deal”.
But the other nations involved in the agreement – including China, Russia, and the UK – believe it is the best way to prevent Iran getting a nuclear weapon.
Since Mr Trump’s inauguration, his administration has also continued to certify to Congress that Iran is upholding its part of the deal, which it must do every 90 days….

 This is certainly a much more honest speech about the jihad threat than 
any speech Barack Obama ever delivered, and Trump delivered it well to a
 tough audience. How he follows up on it is all-important: will he 
actually scrap Obama’s fantasy-based counterterror program and allow for
 study of the motivating ideology of jihad terrorists, without which 
there can be no effective response to the global jihad threat? We shall 
see.
 
“Read full text of Trump’s Riyadh address to the Muslim world,” Jerusalem Post, May 21, 2017:
I want to thank King Salman for his extraordinary words, and the magnificent Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for hosting today’s summit. I am honored to be received by such gracious hosts. I have always heard about the splendor of your country and the kindness of your citizens, but words do not do justice to the grandeur of this remarkable place and the incredible hospitality you have shown us from the moment we arrived.
You also hosted me in the treasured home of King Abdulaziz, the founder of the Kingdom who united your great people. Working alongside another beloved leader – American President Franklin Roosevelt – King Abdulaziz began the enduring partnership between our two countries. King Salman: your father would be so proud to see that you are continuing his legacy – and just as he opened the first chapter in our partnership, today we begin a new chapter that will bring lasting benefits to our citizens.
Let me now also extend my deep and heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of the distinguished heads of state who made this journey here today. You greatly honor us with your presence, and I send the warmest regards from my country to yours. I know that our time together will bring many blessings to both your people and mine.
I stand before you as a representative of the American People, to deliver a message of friendship and hope. That is why I chose to make my first foreign visit a trip to the heart of the Muslim world, to the nation that serves as custodian of the two holiest sites in the Islamic Faith.
In my inaugural address to the American People, I pledged to strengthen America’s oldest friendships, and to build new partnerships in pursuit of peace. I also promised that America will not seek to impose our way of life on others, but to outstretch our hands in the spirit of cooperation and trust.
Our vision is one of peace, security, and prosperity—in this region, and in the world.
Our goal is a coalition of nations who share the aim of stamping out extremism and providing our children a hopeful future that does honor to God.
And so this historic and unprecedented gathering of leaders—unique in the history of nations—is a symbol to the world of our shared resolve and our mutual respect. To the leaders and citizens of every country assembled here today, I want you to know that the United States is eager to form closer bonds of friendship, security, culture and commerce.
For Americans, this is an exciting time. A new spirit of optimism is sweeping our country: in just a few months, we have created almost a million new jobs, added over 3 trillion dollars of new value, lifted the burdens on American industry, and made record investments in our military that will protect the safety of our people and enhance the security of our wonderful friends and allies – many of whom are here today.
Now, there is even more blessed news I am pleased to share with you. My meetings with King Salman, the Crown Prince, and the Deputy Crown Prince, have been filled with great warmth, good will, and tremendous cooperation. Yesterday, we signed historic agreements with the Kingdom that will invest almost $400 billion in our two countries and create many thousands of jobs in America and Saudi Arabia.
This landmark agreement includes the announcement of a $110 billion Saudi-funded defense purchase – and we will be sure to help our Saudi friends to get a good deal from our great American defense companies. This agreement will help the Saudi military to take a greater role in security operations.
We have also started discussions with many of the countries present today on strengthening partnerships, and forming new ones, to advance security and stability across the Middle East and beyond.
Later today, we will make history again with the opening of a new Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology – located right here, in this central part of the Islamic World.
This groundbreaking new center represents a clear declaration that Muslim-majority countries must take the lead in combatting radicalization, and I want to express our gratitude to King Salman for this strong demonstration of leadership.
I have had the pleasure of welcoming several of the leaders present today to the White House, and I look forward to working with all of you.
America is a sovereign nation and our first priority is always the safety and security of our citizens. We are not here to lecture—we are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship. Instead, we are here to offer partnership – based on shared interests and values – to pursue a better future for us all.
Here at this summit we will discuss many interests we share together. But above all we must be united in pursuing the one goal that transcends every other consideration. That goal is to meet history’s great test—to conquer extremism and vanquish the forces of terrorism.
Young Muslim boys and girls should be able to grow up free from fear, safe from violence, and innocent of hatred. And young Muslim men and women should have the chance to build a new era of prosperity for themselves and their peoples.
With God’s help, this summit will mark the beginning of the end for those who practice terror and spread its vile creed. At the same time, we pray this special gathering may someday be remembered as the beginning of peace in the Middle East – and maybe, even all over the world.
But this future can only be achieved through defeating terrorism and the ideology that drives it.
Few nations have been spared its violent reach.
America has suffered repeated barbaric attacks – from the atrocities of September 11th to the devastation of the Boston Bombing, to the horrible killings in San Bernardino and Orlando.
The nations of Europe have also endured unspeakable horror. So too have the nations of Africa and even South America. India, Russia, China and Australia have been victims.
But, in sheer numbers, the deadliest toll has been exacted on the innocent people of Arab, Muslim and Middle Eastern nations. They have borne the brunt of the killings and the worst of the destruction in this wave of fanatical violence.
Some estimates hold that more than 95 percent of the victims of terrorism are themselves Muslim.
We now face a humanitarian and security disaster in this region that is spreading across the planet. It is a tragedy of epic proportions. No description of the suffering and depravity can begin to capture its full measure.
The true toll of ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, and so many others, must be counted not only in the number of dead. It must also be counted in generations of vanished dreams.
The Middle East is rich with natural beauty, vibrant cultures, and massive amounts of historic treasures. It should increasingly become one of the great global centers of commerce and opportunity.
This region should not be a place from which refugees flee, but to which newcomers flock.
Saudi Arabia is home to the holiest sites in one of the world’s great faiths. Each year millions of Muslims come from around the world to Saudi Arabia to take part in the Hajj. In addition to ancient wonders, this country is also home to modern ones — including soaring achievements in architecture.
Egypt was a thriving center of learning and achievement thousands of years before other parts of the world. The wonders of Giza, Luxor and Alexandria are proud monuments to that ancient heritage.
All over the world, people dream of walking through the ruins of Petra in Jordan. Iraq was the cradle of civilization and is a land of natural beauty. And the United Arab Emirates has reached incredible heights with glass and steel, and turned earth and water into spectacular works of art.
The entire region is at the center of the key shipping lanes of the Suez Canal, the Red Sea, and the Straits of Hormuz. The potential of this region has never been greater. 65 percent of its population is under the age of 30. Like all young men and women, they seek great futures to build, great national projects to join, and a place for their families to call home.
But this untapped potential, this tremendous cause for optimism, is held at bay by bloodshed and terror. There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it.
Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person, and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith.
Terrorists do not worship God, they worship death.
If we do not act against this organized terror, then we know what will happen. Terrorism’s devastation of life will continue to spread. Peaceful societies will become engulfed by violence. And the futures of many generations will be sadly squandered.
If we do not stand in uniform condemnation of this killing—then not only will we be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, but we will be judged by God.
This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations.
This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it.
This is a battle between Good and Evil.
When we see the scenes of destruction in the wake of terror, we see no signs that those murdered were Jewish or Christian, Shia or Sunni. When we look upon the streams of innocent blood soaked into the ancient ground, we cannot see the faith or sect or tribe of the victims – we see only that they were Children of God whose deaths are an insult to all that is holy.
But we can only overcome this evil if the forces of good are united and strong – and if everyone in this room does their fair share and fulfills their part of the burden.
Terrorism has spread across the world. But the path to peace begins right here, on this ancient soil, in this sacred land.
America is prepared to stand with you – in pursuit of shared interests and common security.
But the nations of the Middle East cannot wait for American power to crush this enemy for them. The nations of the Middle East will have to decide what kind of future they want for themselves, for their countries, and for their children.
It is a choice between two futures – and it is a choice America CANNOT make for you.
A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and extremists. Drive. Them. Out.
DRIVE THEM OUT of your places of worship.
DRIVE THEM OUT of your communities.
DRIVE THEM OUT of your holy land, and
DRIVE THEM OUT OF THIS EARTH.

For our part, America is committed to adjusting our strategies to meet evolving threats and new facts. We will discard those strategies that have not worked—and will apply new approaches informed by experience and judgment. We are adopting a Principled Realism, rooted in common values and shared interests.
Our friends will never question our support, and our enemies will never doubt our determination. Our partnerships will advance security through stability, not through radical disruption. We will make decisions based on real-world outcomes – not inflexible ideology. We will be guided by the lessons of experience, not the confines of rigid thinking. And, wherever possible, we will seek gradual reforms – not sudden intervention.
We must seek partners, not perfection—and to make allies of all who share our goals.
Above all, America seeks peace – not war.
Muslim nations must be willing to take on the burden, if we are going to defeat terrorism and send its wicked ideology into oblivion.
The first task in this joint effort is for your nations to deny all territory to the foot soldiers of evil. Every country in the region has an absolute duty to ensure that terrorists find no sanctuary on their soil.
Many are already making significant contributions to regional security: Jordanian pilots are crucial partners against ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Saudi Arabia and a regional coalition have taken strong action against Houthi militants in Yemen. The Lebanese Army is hunting ISIS operatives who try to infiltrate their territory. Emirati troops are supporting our Afghan partners. In Mosul, American troops are supporting Kurds, Sunnis and Shias fighting together for their homeland. Qatar, which hosts the U.S. Central Command, is a crucial strategic partner. Our longstanding partnership with Kuwait and Bahrain continue to enhance security in the region. And courageous Afghan soldiers are making tremendous sacrifices in the fight against the Taliban, and others, in the fight for their country.
As we deny terrorist organizations control of territory and populations, we must also strip them of their access to funds. We must cut off the financial channels that let ISIS sell oil, let extremists pay their fighters, and help terrorists smuggle their reinforcements.
I am proud to announce that the nations here today will be signing an agreement to prevent the financing of terrorism, called the Terrorist Financing Targeting Center – co-chaired by the United States and Saudi Arabia, and joined by every member of the Gulf Cooperation Council. It is another historic step in a day that will be long remembered.
I also applaud the Gulf Cooperation Council for blocking funders from using their countries as a financial base for terror, and designating Hezbollah as a terrorist organization last year. Saudi Arabia also joined us this week in placing sanctions on one of the most senior leaders of Hezbollah.
Of course, there is still much work to do.
That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires. And it means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews, and the slaughter of Christians.
Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear: Barbarism will deliver you no glory – piety to evil will bring you no dignity. If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and YOUR SOUL WILL BE CONDEMNED.
And political leaders must speak out to affirm the same idea: heroes don’t kill innocents; they save them. Many nations here today have taken important steps to raise up that message. Saudi Arabia’s Vision for 2030 is an important and encouraging statement of tolerance, respect, empowering women, and economic development.
The United Arab Emirates has also engaged in the battle for hearts and souls—and with the U.S., launched a center to counter the online spread of hate. Bahrain too is working to undermine recruitment and radicalism.
I also applaud Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon for their role in hosting refugees. The surge of migrants and refugees leaving the Middle East depletes the human capital needed to build stable societies and economies. Instead of depriving this region of so much human potential, Middle Eastern countries can give young people hope for a brighter future in their home nations and regions.
That means promoting the aspirations and dreams of all citizens who seek a better life – including women, children, and followers of all faiths. Numerous Arab and Islamic scholars have eloquently argued that protecting equality strengthens Arab and Muslim communities.
For many centuries the Middle East has been home to Christians, Muslims and Jews living side-by-side. We must practice tolerance and respect for each other once again—and make this region a place where every man and woman, no matter their faith or ethnicity, can enjoy a life of dignity and hope.
In that spirit, after concluding my visit in Riyadh, I will travel to Jerusalem and Bethlehem, and then to the Vatican – visiting many of the holiest places in the three Abrahamic Faiths. If these three faiths can join together in cooperation, then peace in this world is possible – including peace between Israelis and Palestinians. I will be meeting with both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
Starving terrorists of their territory, their funding, and the false allure of their craven ideology, will be the basis for defeating them.
But no discussion of stamping out this threat would be complete without mentioning the government that gives terrorists all three—safe harbor, financial backing, and the social standing needed for recruitment. It is a regime that is responsible for so much instability in the region. I am speaking of course of Iran.
From Lebanon to Iraq to Yemen, Iran funds, arms, and trains terrorists, militias, and other extremist groups that spread destruction and chaos across the region. For decades, Iran has fueled the fires of sectarian conflict and terror.
It is a government that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing the destruction of Israel, death to America, and ruin for many leaders and nations in this room.
Among Iran’s most tragic and destabilizing interventions have been in Syria. Bolstered by Iran, Assad has committed unspeakable crimes, and the United States has taken firm action in response to the use of banned chemical weapons by the Assad Regime – launching 59 tomahawk missiles at the Syrian air base from where that murderous attack originated.
Responsible nations must work together to end the humanitarian crisis in Syria, eradicate ISIS, and restore stability to the region. The Iranian regime’s longest-suffering victims are its own people. Iran has a rich history and culture, but the people of Iran have endured hardship and despair under their leaders’ reckless pursuit of conflict and terror.
Until the Iranian regime is willing to be a partner for peace, all nations of conscience must work together to isolate Iran, deny it funding for terrorism, and pray for the day when the Iranian people have the just and righteous government they deserve.
The decisions we make will affect countless lives.
King Salman, I thank you for the creation of this great moment in history, and for your massive investment in America, its industry and its jobs. I also thank you for investing in the future of this part of the world.
This fertile region has all the ingredients for extraordinary success – a rich history and culture, a young and vibrant people, a thriving spirit of enterprise. But you can only unlock this future if the citizens of the Middle East are freed from extremism, terror and violence.
We in this room are the leaders of our peoples. They look to us for answers, and for action. And when we look back at their faces, behind every pair of eyes is a soul that yearns for justice.
Today, billions of faces are now looking at us, waiting for us to act on the great question of our time.
Will we be indifferent in the presence of evil? Will we protect our citizens from its violent ideology? Will we let its venom spread through our societies? Will we let it destroy the most holy sites on earth? If we do not confront this deadly terror, we know what the future will bring—more suffering and despair. But if we act—if we leave this magnificent room unified and determined to do what it takes to destroy the terror that threatens the world—then there is no limit to the great future our citizens will have.
The birthplace of civilization is waiting to begin a new renaissance. Just imagine what tomorrow could bring.
Glorious wonders of science, art, medicine and commerce to inspire humankind. Great cities built on the ruins of shattered towns. New jobs and industries that will lift up millions of people. Parents who no longer worry for their children, families who no longer mourn for their loved ones, and the faithful who finally worship without fear.
These are the blessings of prosperity and peace. These are the desires that burn with a righteous flame in every human heart. And these are the just demands of our beloved peoples.
I ask you to join me, to join together, to work together, and to FIGHT together— BECAUSE UNITED, WE WILL NOT FAIL.
Thank you. God Bless You. God Bless Your Countries. And God Bless the United States of America.

 Islamic State beheads and dismembers dozens of women and children in jihad attack on Shia villages
BY CHRISTINE WILLIAMS

The series of deadly attacks in the central Hama province targeted villages where most residents belong to the Ismaili branch of Shia Islam.
The Islamic State considers Ismailis apostates, and the Sharia punishment for apostasy is death. But you won’t hear much about Muslim-on-Muslim violence committed in the name of Islam from the mainstream media. The media wants to give the impression that it about us versus them (i.e., Westerners unfairly picking on Muslims).
A leading Muslim group (and many Muslims), meanwhile, were reportedly angered by a British documentary that dared to ask the question, “how Islamic is Islamic State?” A Newsweek report offers some insight: “When It Comes to Beheadings, ISIS Has Nothing Over Saudi Arabia”: the world’s most self-consciously Islamic state behaves in a manner very much like that of…the Islamic State. Saudi Arabia is a massive exporter of Wahhabi ideology and a major funder of mosques worldwide, in which imams are frequently preaching death to apostates, gays and blasphemers; the beating of wives; the permissibility of raping infidel women, etc.
“ISIS behead and dismember dozens of women and children in horrific attack on Syrian villages”, by Bassem Mroue & Lucy Clarke-Billings, Mirror, May 18, 2017:
Islamic State militants have beheaded and dismembered dozens of women and children in horrific attacks on Syrian villages which have left 52 people dead.
The series of deadly attacks in the central Hama province targeted villages where most residents belong to the Ismaili branch of Shia Islam.
The villages are located near the town of Salamiyeh and the highway that links the capital, Damascus, to the northern city of Aleppo.
State news agency SANA said militants stormed homes in the southern part of the Aqareb al-Safi village.
Government forces eventually managed to “repel them”, pushing them back toward the desert.
The head of the National Hospital in Salamiyeh, Dr Noufal Safar, said the hospital received 52 bodies, including 11 women and 17 children.
He said some of them had been beheaded, while others had their limbs removed…..

Great. Now who will stand against the scapegoating of non-Muslims by Muslim terrorists, and the scapegoating of America, Israel, and the West by Leftists and Islamic supremacists?
Of course, those kinds of scapegoating are what Caleb Joshua Pine was taught for four years at Notre Dame, such that he now takes them for reality.

KRIS VALLOTTON'S FALSE GOSPEL OF PROSPERITY

 http://www.828ministries.com/populum/uploadnic/skacc88rmavbild-2016-02-14-kl-12-46-31-png_1_20170222-511.png
KRIS VALLOTTON'S FALSE GOSPEL OF PROSPERITY 
BY ROB NELSEN
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
 Kris Vallotton, the Senior Associate Leader of Bethel Church in 
Redding, California, and co-founder of Bethel School of Supernatural 
Ministry believes that God wants you to have wealth, stating that “contrary to what we 
may have been taught,” wealth is actually a sign of God’s blessing.
In the article, Vallotton offers no scriptural support for any of these claims. How could he? Could you imagine if Mr. Vallotton told the twelve, impoverished, martyred apostles that God really just wanted them to be wealthy? Could you imagine Mr. Vallotton telling that to Jesus, or Paul, or James, or any of the martyrs throughout church history?
However, he goes on to list “8 signs of a wealthy mindset,” Let’s give them a thorough biblical review.
1. Poverty lives for today, wealth leaves a legacy.
Apparently, Vallotton needs to read Matthew 6 where Jesus provides great teaching on wealth and its purposes.
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:33-34
Jesus actually commands us to not worry about tomorrow, rather focus on today. Why? Because we don’t even know what day will be our last. Vallotton’s very first principle contradicts this simple teaching of Jesus.
2. Poverty finds a problem in every opportunity; while wealth finds an opportunity in every problem.
This is typical motivational speaker mumbo-jumbo. They make a vague statement and let you fill in the blanks in your own life. There isn’t any real instruction. This statement and all the rest belong in fortune cookies rather than in a Pastor’s writings.
Paul commanded both Timothy and Titus to teach sound doctrine (2 Timothy 4:2-4, Titus 2:1). It is not the job of the pastor to engage in teachings that tickle ears, but to hold fast the sound doctrine passed onto us by the apostles through the Holy Spirit. You will see that all the statements made by Vallotton are nothing more then weightless claims.
3. Poverty feels entitled, while wealth feels empowered.
Ask yourself this question: as a Christian where, from where should your confidence come? Your boasting should not be in yourself or in your riches, but in the Lord.
“Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” –Psalm 20:7
If you are feeling empowered by the amount of money you own then you are trusting in a false god. Remember the story of Job. That God has the ability to give and take your wealth, health, and family in a moment. Vallotton is not leading people to Christ or godliness, he is seducing your soul into idolatry. Seduction of the flesh is the aim of all false teachers. Vallotton is no different.
4. Poverty fears the future, while wealth makes history.
How unthoughtful do you have to be to make such a ridiculous statement?
Studies show that suicide risk is actually higher in rich neighborhoods as opposed to poor neighborhoods. Rich people who find their empowerment in wealth have more anxiety about money, not less. Rightly did Paul say:
“Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?” Romans 6:16
Also, fun fact: The Christian church was built on the backs of the martyred, not the wealthy. Foxe’s book of Martyrs shaped the church of England. The stories of Christians being murder for their faith has left a greater legacy than anyone with a wealthy mindset ever could.
5. Poverty blames others for their condition, while wealth takes responsibility for things that aren’t their fault.
Notice that this statement and statement 3 are basically the same. When you depart from biblically sufficient doctrine your mind becomes darkened. Darkened both sinfully and intellectually.
Rightly did David say, “I rejoice at your word like one who finds great spoil. (Psalm 119:162
If Mr. Vallotton would repent and believe the gospel he might actually have something of substance to say. However, because his heart is darkened he has no reverence for God’s word. When we abandoned the treasure that is the Scriptures, we’re left with these lifeless, rewrapped sayings.
6. Poverty asks, “What are you going to do for me?” Wealth asks, “Who is worthy of my investment?”
7. Poverty hangs around with other disgruntled people who validate their accusations. Wealthy people surround themselves with other powerful influencers.
I combined these two together because, once again, they are saying the same thing. And once again they find direct condemnation in scripture:
My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and says, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?   –(James 2:1-5)
God calls us to a community with all types of people. We don’t get to pick and choose who God puts in our lives. We should pour out into anyone who fellowships with us regardless their finical status or even their attitude.
8. Poverty votes for candidates that increase their entitlements. Wealth elects officials who will sacrifice today’s comfort for tomorrow’s children.
It’s vague as to what this actually means, but it’s obviously politically motivated. Is this a direct rebuke against voting for socialist leaders? Is it a rebuke to those who support free markets? It is carefully stated in order to satisfy any political opinion and not to offend anyone. One thing is for certain, it’s our theology, not our wealth, that should shape our worldview, including our politics.
Pastors are called to clarity. They are called to instruct their flock in sound biblical preaching. They are not called to simply make vague statements and let their flock fill-in-the-blank.
I find vagueness to be the greatest tool in the arsenal of false teachers. It’s like grease for a mediocre wrestler. When you try to grapple they are all slippery and unpinnable. When you go to a false teacher about their false doctrine, they are always greased up with excuses and technicalities. “Technically, I didn’t say (fill in the blank),” is the scapegoat these heretics take. Never trust a preacher who does not clearly communicate God’s Word (Proverbs 19:1, Proverbs 16:13).
Vallotton hasn’t once in this article shown any scriptural backing for these statements, nor can he. These 8 statements are unbiblical and cannot be defended.
I would call Mr. Vallotton to repent. To believe the biblical gospel of repentance and faith in Jesus, not the acquiring of wealth.  I would charge Mr. Vallotton to sincerely read Matthew 6 where Jesus says, “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.”
I am not am not against Christians trying to make money. The book of Proverbs has plenty good things to say about hard work and gaining an income. I worked two jobs to put myself through college and work full-time through college just so I don’t get buried underneath the bills. I support good stewardship. I support tithing to our churches. What I don’t support is idolatry. Jesus doesn’t support the worship of money either. If Mr. Vallotton would read Matthew 6, he would see that too. Hopefully, he will repent.
No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” Matthew 6:24

ILLEGAL ALIEN ARRESTS UP NEARLY 40% UNDER TRUMP

ILLEGAL ALIEN ARRESTS UP NEARLY 40% 
UNDER TRUMP
BY WARREN MASS
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
 
Statistics released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on May 17 indicated that during the 100 days since President Trump signed multiple executive orders regarding immigration enforcement priorities, ICE agents have arrested more than 41,000 individuals who are either known or suspected of being in the country illegally. This represents an increase of 37.6 percent over the same period in 2016.
A report about these findings posted on the ICE website quoted a statement from ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan, who said:
These statistics reflect President Trump’s commitment to enforce our immigration laws fairly and across the board. ICE agents and officers have been given clear direction to focus on threats to public safety and national security, which has resulted in a substantial increase in the arrest of convicted criminal aliens. However, when we encounter others who are in the country unlawfully, we will execute our sworn duty and enforce the law. As the data demonstrates, ICE continues to execute our mission professionally and in accordance with the law, and our communities will be much safer for it.

The ICE statement noted that nearly 75 percent of those arrested during this period in 2017 are convicted criminals, with offenses ranging from homicide and assault to sexual abuse and drug-related charges.
The arrest of aliens at-large in the community increased by more than 50 percent, from 8,381 last year to 12,766 arrests this year during the same period.
Furthermore, the arrest of convicted criminal aliens climbed nearly 20 percent, from 25,786 last year to 30,473 this year.
ICE noted that violent crimes such as homicide, rape, kidnapping, and assault accounted for more than 2,700 convictions of illegal aliens.
We reported last January that during a ceremony at the Department of Homeland Security on January 25 honoring DHS’s newly confirmed secretary, retired Gen. John Kelly, President Trump signed an executive order to begin construction of a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico and to improve immigration enforcement. This increased enforcement includes ending the “catch and release” policy practiced by the Obama administration. Under “catch and release,” illegal border crossers were issued a “notice to appear” and released, instead of being detained and processed for deportation.
Although arrests of illegal aliens rose, the number of deportations fell 12 percent during the period, Homan said.
The acting ICE director attributed the drop to a decline in arrests on the U.S.-Mexico border, where deportations of illegal border crossers are usually processed quickly, as well as a lengthy backlog in U.S. immigration courts that issue deportation orders.
Although the Trump administration has prioritized the apprehension and deportation of illegal aliens with criminal records, in the course of their enforcement activities, ICE agents as a matter of course arrest illegals whose only crime is entering the country illegally. Since illegal entry is a violation of our laws, these people are being processed for deportation in greater numbers than they were under the Obama administration, which often failed to enforce immigration law violations.
Consequently, in addition to the increase in the arrests of illegal aliens convicted of crimes besides illegal entry, there was also a rise in “non-criminal” arrests during the Trump administration. They have increased from approximately 4,200 in 2016 to more than 10,800 in 2017
“As Secretary Kelly has made clear, ICE will no longer exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement. All of those in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to immigration arrest, detention and, if found removable by final order, removal from the United States,” NBC News quoted Matthew Bourke, a spokesman for ICE.
