Ousted Sudan dictator Omar al-Bashir ‘got $90 million from Saudi royals’

Omar al-Bashir, the ousted dictator of Sudan, was given $90 million (£74 million) from senior Saudi royals before he was overthrown, investigators said at the start of his corruption trial.

Just four months after he was forced from the power, the 75-year-old former strongman sat in a metal cage as prosecutors of the state he once ruled levelled accusations against him.

The scene in the Khartoum courtroom illustrated how quickly Bashir had fallen, going from Sudan’s all-powerful leader of 30 years to a defendant in a simple white robe and turban.

Bashir is charged with illicit possession of foreign currency and accepting gifts through unofficial channels.

Ahmed Ali Mohamed, a police detective, told the court that Bashir had admitted to receiving $25 million from Mohammed bin Salman, the powerful crown prince of Saudi Arabia.

The detective said Bashir received another $65 million from former King Abdullah, who died in 2015. He said Bashir claimed to have given the money away in donations but gave no details.

Imam Who Endorses Wife Beating Plans Legal Jihad Against Bernier

Andrew Scheer and Justin Trudeau’s favourite Islamist Omar Subedar has told Huffpo that he plan’s to attack Maxime Bernier leader of the People’s Party of Canada over Bernier’s assertions that lslamists  have infiltrated Canadian political parties:

“Subedar told HuffPost Canada Monday that Bernier’s allegations are untrue and he is just waiting for “the right moment to use the Canadian system against him” and bring him to court.”

The Imam claims he was misquoted about that wife beating thing. I don’t think he’s going to have much of a defense.

And that’s how Islamists work. They use our laws against anyone who criticizes their violent supremacist cult. Thanks for illustrating that so beautifully Omar!

 

Imam who endorses wife beating plans legal jihad against Bernier, says he is just waiting for “the right moment to use the Canadian system against him”

Arab Racism: Blackface, Staple of Arab Comedy, Faces Surge of Criticism

CAIRO — On the Libyan comedy show, the punch line was in the baby carriage.

An elevator door slams shut, separating the mother — an actress in blackface — from her babies. A hidden camera shows unsuspecting passengers trapped inside with the baby carriage.

“Watch my babies!” the mother calls out in mock horror.

But when the passengers pull back the carriage cover, a pair of monkeys leap out.

Blackface, a racist entertainment device with roots in 19th-century America, is alive and well in mainstream Arab entertainment. On television networks across the Middle East, performers regularly darken their faces in comedy skits to wring cheap laughs from demeaning stereotypes and centuries-old prejudices.

The practice is offensive enough in the United States that when a photo of a man in blackface was discovered on the medical-school yearbook page of Gov. Ralph Northam of Virginia, he faced widespread demands to resign. In Italy, the state airline Alitalia was forced to pull an advertisement in July in which an actor in blackface portrayed former President Barack Obama.

In the Arab world, where racism is a deeply rooted yet rarely discussed issue, blackface comedy is facing a surge of criticism on social media, even forcing the occasional apology. But the practice remains widespread and acceptable enough to be a staple on major television networks.

 

Palestinian groups behind Omar-Tlaib canceled trip express anti-Semitism, links to terrorism

 The Palestinian groups that were part of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) canceled trip to Israel and the West Bank have a public record of openly expressing anti-Semitism, supporting the BDS movement, as well as fostering sympathy of and links to terrorist groups.

According to the itinerary released by Israel’s public broadcaster Kan, the congresswomen were scheduled to meet with people from Palestinian groups Miftah, who was also sponsoring the trip, and the Defense for Children International-Palestine (DCI-P).

“While we do not support policies that would block these U.S. lawmakers from entering, we note how they exploit their standing to partner with groups such as Miftah that promote anti-Jewish hate and advocate against peace and coexistence, as well as at least one NGO linked to the PFLP terror group, the so-called Defense for Children International-Palestine,” NGO Monitor told JNS.

In his statement on Israel’s decision to bar the congresswomen, Netanyahu also noted the Palestinian group’s support for BDS and ties with terrorism.

“[T]he itinerary of the two congresswomen reveals that the sole purpose of their visit is to harm Israel and increase incitement against it,” said Netanyahu. “In addition, the organization that is funding their trip is Miftah, which is an avid supporter of BDS, and among whose members are those who have expressed support for terrorism against Israel.”

Founded in 1998, Miftah’s vision is a “sovereign, independent, democratic, tolerant and inclusive Palestinian state, which grants Palestinians their basic rights, preserves their dignity, and enjoys international recognition and respect,” according to the group’s website.

Despite such claims, Miftah, which is mainly funded by a number of E.U. countries and the United Nations, has been tied to terrorist sympathizers and anti-Semites, as well as openly accusing Israel of committing atrocities and support for the BDS movement.

Philadelphia: Maurice Hill, who wounded six cops in shootout, is devout Muslim who attended jihadi mosque

“Clarion Intel Exclusive: Philadelphia Shooter Attended Radical Mosque,” Clarion Project, August 16, 2019:

Maurice Hill, the criminal who wounded six police officers in a shootout in Philadelphia and was arrested after a seven-hour standoff, attended a radical mosque.

The mosque, called Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar, is known for preaching the Islamist ideology promoted by Saudi Arabia referred to as “Wahhabism.”

Clarion Intelligence Network has been aware through its sources that the area where the shootings took place is known for trafficking in guns, drugs and counterfeit items. This criminal market has a strong Islamist element that includes extremist gangs.

Hill’s older sister said he “occasionally attended” an unnamed mosque, confirming initial reports from our sources that Hill is a Muslim. The sources do not yet have first-hand evidence of the shooter being personally involved in Islamist extremism.

Clarion Intel’s sources report that Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar is a Salafi mosque which follows the theocratic teachings of Saudi Arabia’s top Wahhabist scholars.

At this point, there is no indication that Hill’s shooting of police officers was motivated by Islamism or anything other than a desire to resist arrest.

However, Islamism’s inherent hostility towards Western governments and values fuels anti-police bigotry that can justify violence against law enforcement. Clarion’s sources stated that many of the mosque’s attendees view the police as oppressors of Muslims….

Canada: Conservative leader Andrew Scheer panders to imam who hates Israel and sanctions wife-beating

Ezra Levant of Rebel Media reported last April about Omar Subedar:

He’s an Islamic teacher, publisher, politician. He’s a huge fan of Justin Trudeau — and of Patrick Brown, the disgraced former leader of the Ontario PCs.

He’s obsessed with posting anti-Israel, pro-PLO memes.

Subedar also wants people to live according to the strict laws of Islam, sharia law.

TONIGHT I’ll show you some of this advice from Andrew Scheer’s new friend Omar Subedar, on how to deal with a “stubborn, arrogant or disobedient” wife.

Subedar says that, if all else fails:

Strike them: If the problem still does not get resolved then as a final resort Allah has permitted the husband to discipline his wife by striking her, however this does not imply that Allah is promoting domestic violence. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) has made it very clear that the beating should not be agonizing in any shape or form.

He actually goes on to recommend using a foot-long heavy stick.

There is also concern about Scheer’s commitment to a free press and the freedom of speech, as Christine Douglass-Williams wrote here last year:

The National Policy Committee Convention Package is undoubtedly a positive one, but there are reasons for concern about whether the party is prepared to implement its own written policy: contrary to the reference to free speech as a “hallmark of a free society,” Scheer banned Rebel Media from sending any of its reporters to the Halifax Convention, while the most Conservative-critical leftist media are welcomed. Also among its exhibitors is “The Canadian Muslim Vote.” I received multiple emails, alarmed that this group was participating while Rebel Media was banned.  On the Board of The Canadian Muslim Vote is Ingrid Mattson, whose reputation precedes her, but yet she still somehow is accepted into the Islamic mainstream in Canada, welcomed with open arms by Liberals and fearful Conservatives. I was unable to verify her attendance officially in Halifax, but via email (unverified), I was informed that she will be in attendance.

Muslim Racism: Outrage in Malaysia as Zakir Naik suggests Chinese expulsion

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Indian Muslim preacher Zakir Naik has ignited outrage in Malaysiaafter suggesting the expulsion of its ethnic Chinese minorities, even as the country’s cabinet mulls the possibility of cancelling his permanent residency.

On Wednesday, two ministers told Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad at a cabinet meeting that Naik needs to be deported as his speeches were “inflammatory in nature”.

At least four cabinet ministers have called for Naik’s deportation along with other senior politicians.

“We have expressed our position which is that action must be taken and that Zakir Naik should no longer be allowed to remain in Malaysia,” said Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo and Human Resources Minister M Kulasegaran in a joint statement.

“The Prime Minister has taken note of our concerns. We leave it to him to consider the position and to decide soonest possible what will be done to deal with the problem,” the statement said.

Sources with knowledge of the cabinet meeting told Al Jazeera that Mahathir said he “will solve the problem”.

“But he gave no details,” the source added.

It was unclear when the cabinet will make a decision on Naik.

Naik, who was granted permanent residency in Malaysia by the previous government, has been living in the country for the last three years.

He drew a huge public outcry for his recent comment that Hindus in the Southeast Asian country had “100 times more rights” than the Muslim minority in India, and that they support the “prime minister of India and not the prime minister of Malaysia”.

Discussions on race and religion, which are sensitive issues in Malaysia, have come to the fore in recent weeks.

Muslims make up about 60 percent of its 32 million people. The rest are mostly ethnic Chinese and Indians, most of whom are Hindus.
