Slaveholding Mauritania, Sharia Anti-Black Sudan, jihad-plagued Libya elected to UN Human Rights Council

The U.N.’s election today of serial abusers of human rights —Venezuela, Mauritania, Libya and Sudan — to its highest human rights body drew sharp criticism from the non-governmental human rights group UN Watch, which is based in Geneva at the seat of the 47-nation Human Rights Council.

“Electing the oppressive Venezuelan regime of Nicolás Maduro to a human rights council is like making a pyromaniac into the town fire chief,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch. “It’s absurd, immoral and offensive.”

“Sadly, today the UN General Assembly disregarded its own rules by electing regimes that violate the human rights of their own citizens, and which consistently vote the wrong way on UN initiatives to protect the human rights of others,” said Neuer.

In a detailed study released last week, UN Watch found that four of the newly elected members — VenezuelaMauritaniaLibya, and Sudan — had poor records on respecting human rights at home and in their UN votes, thereby failing to qualify according to the UN’s own membership criteria.

The council already counts China, Cuba, Saudi Arabia, DR Congo, Eritrea, Qatar, Somalia, Cameroon and Pakistan among its members.

The UN General Assembly today also elected Armenia and Brazil, both of whom were deemed “questionable” by UN Watch, due to their problematic human rights records or UN voting records.

“Regrettably, at least 7 EU states helped elect slaveholding Mauritania (which won 172 out of 193 votes), a country that has 500,000 slaves. Not one EU member state spoke out against the election of dictatorships. By turning a blind eye as even more human rights violators join and subvert the council, leading democracies are complicit in the world body’s moral decline,” said Neuer.

Neuer proposed two major reforms to the election system:

End Secret Ballot:  “Vote trades flourish in the darkness of the UN’s archaic secret ballot system for elections. We need to make elections public, as is the case with all other kinds of UN voting. Sunshine is always the best disinfectant.”

Scrap Elections Altogether:  “Given that our own democracies continue to disregard the election criteria by voting for abusers,” said Neuer, “then we should just scrap elections altogether, and make every country a member, as is the case at the General Assembly’s human rights committee. At least that way Venezuelan ambassadors around the world could no longer hold up their UNHRC election as a shield of international legitimacy to cover up the abuses of their regime.”

Supreme Court lets stand court ruling OKing Muslim indoctrination in school

October 15, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — The U.S. Supreme Court today declined to review the case of Caleigh Wood, a Christian eleventh-grade public high school student in Maryland who, despite threats of receiving a failing grade, refused to deny her faith by making a written profession of the Muslim conversion prayer known as the Shahada — “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.

 

She was also forced to view a series of pro-Islamic PowerPoint slides, including one that stated, “Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian.” The high school’s content specialist, Jack Tuttle, testified that use of such a comparative statement was inappropriate and that he would have advised the teacher not to use it. Nevertheless, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals opined that the teaching did not violate the Establishment Clause.

The Thomas More Law Center (“TMLC”), a national nonprofit public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, represented Caleigh Wood in the federal lawsuit against La Plata High School. Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Law Center, commented on the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear the case:

I’m not aware of any public school which has forced a Muslim student to write the Lord’s Prayer or John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Thompson continued, “Yet, under the pretext of teaching history or social studies, public schools across America are promoting the religion of Islam in ways that would never be tolerated for Christianity or any other religion. It’s disappointing that the Supreme Court did not take this opportunity to clarify the test which lower courts should use when ruling on establishment clause and free speech challenges to public school classes on religion.”

The legal question at stake was whether La Plata High School violated the First Amendment’s Establishment and Free Speech Clauses when it gave Caleigh Wood an assignment she was unable to complete without violating her religious conscience as a Christian.

She believes it is a sin to profess the existence of any other god but the Christian God. She stood firm in her Christian beliefs and was punished for it. School officials refused her father’s request that she be allowed to opt out or be given an alternative assignment. She refused to complete her anti-Christian assignment and consequently received a failing grade.

Thompson added: “Many public schools have become hotbeds of Islamic propaganda. Teaching Islam in schools has gone far beyond a basic history lesson. Prompted by zealous Islamic activism and emboldened by confusing court decisions, schools are now bending over backwards to promote Islam while at the same time denigrating Christianity.”

“Although the Supreme Court passed up an opportunity to provide clearer constitutional guidance on this important issue, there will be other chances as this issue isn’t going away anytime soon,” he said.

Many schools have become willing instruments of Islamic indoctrination. And in Caleigh Wood’s case, the weapon of choice was the PowerPoint presentation, which included the following statements:

  • “Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian.”
  • “Islam at heart is a peaceful religion.”
  • Jihad is a “personal struggle in devotion to Islam, especially involving spiritual discipline.”
  • “To Muslims, Allah is the same God that is worshiped in Christianity and Judaism.”
  • “Men are the managers of the affairs of women” and “Righteous women are therefore obedient.”

Muslim preacher at Toronto’s Dundas Square: “The Jews control the media”

Haashim Atangana Kamena is a former Catholic who has embraced Islam in 1998. According to his bio, Kamena is a devout Muslim and a Muslim Dawah activist (preacher). He was born in Montreal but lives in Toronto. His father was born in Cameroon and his mother in Haiti.

October 14, 2019 Ron Banerj posted a video featuring Haashim Atangana Kamena preaching on the same day at Toronto’s Dundas Square. Here are excerpts from from Kamena’s statements:

Islam is the truth, because the media is controlled by the JewsThe Jews, the very least, they control the media and they [the Jews] are doing everything possible to demonize Islam, right? So because they are doing everything possible to demonize Islam, they [the Jews] want to make people think that Islam is all about terrorism and things like that… [See] what’s is going on with the media. The media is controlled by the Jews, right? Thus, we don’t have any problems with the Jews, because at one time the Jews were the chosen people, and even the Prophet Mohammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, is prophesied in the Torah and the Jews they know this. The Jews they knew that the Prophet Mohammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, is prophesied in the Torah… The Europeans cannot live with that. Palestine, they [European Jews] are coming here to Palestine, they’re kicking out the people who are originally there for centuries… They take their right of the Palestinians. They don’t want the Palestinians to live a good life so they kicked them off their land, which is sad… So you know I’m staying here to support my brothers in Palestine and my brothers who are being oppressed in places like Burma, because there’s so much oppression in the world, Muslims are being prosecuted… Islam is going to win, so you need to understand that Islam is the solution for all the problems that America has.

Here are excerpts from Haashim Atangana Kamena’s statements in a video that was posted on YouTube a few years ago:

People [have] to be open-minded and not to believe what you hear in the media about Islam… Here in Toronto we have newspapers like Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, 24 Hours, all these newspapers that just designed to contaminate the minds of people… and brainwash the minds of people. And don’t believe what you hear… anything that is good is going to be somehow slandered… [In] the same way, the Jews, they slandered Mary, the mother of Jesus, by saying that she committed fornication… [In] the same way Islam is being slandered… Because it always gonna be a tyrannical system in every generation… that going to be set up in order to enslave people… Today we have the same thing. Anything that is contradiction of monotheism the their eyes, they don’t want us [inaudible] nothing good. So as Muslims we have to be able to handle these obstacles, because Satanic ideas and Satanic principles are becoming normal in our societyWe have to be able to show the people that Satanic ideas and Satanic principles have no place in our society by calling people to monotheism, calling people to the oneness of God, because this is the solution. Islam is the solution for everything, to all the problem I can think of… We need to convey the message of Islam all over the world and we have to be ready to sacrifice ourselves even if it means to die for this deen [religion of Islam], because this is what the companions [of Mohammad] did… We have to do the same, because we have to remember that this life is temporary and we have to focus more on the hereafter.

Jewish student at York University: Arab students spat at us saying “Jews control the world”

Lauren Isaacs is the Toronto Director of Herut Canada and a student at York University in Toronto.

On her Facebook page Lauren Isaacs described in detail an incident between Zionist and Arab/Muslim students that occurred in York university campus on October 7, 2019:

October 7, 2019 A – “Herut Canada is at York University! Come say hi and learn all about Zionism!! We can’t wait to dispel myths and educate about Israel today! Herut North America #ZionUnite”

October 7, 2019 B – “I would like to preface this video [see transcription below] by saying that I was told by several students at York University today that I should NOT be allowed to display a Zionism sign because, according to them, the majority Muslim population on campus finds it offensive. Please watch. Pictures will be posted. Am Yisrael Chai. Never again means NEVER AGAIN! Herut Canada Herut North America #ZionUnite”

October 8, 2019 – “Blatant Antisemitism and violent incitement directed at myself and Jewish students at York University today. Security had to break up angry Palestinian mobs throughout the day because they were screaming at and intimidating Jews. Herut Canada Herut North America”

Here is Lauren Isaacs’ video message:

Hey guys, Lauren Isaacs here. I just came from tabling at York University and I wanted to tell you what happened and debrief about the day. We had a good first hour. We engaged a lot of students both Jewish, Christian, Muslim in conversation, changed some minds, educated about Israel and Zionism. We did have a large sign up that said I’m a Zionist, ask me why. We were hoping to engage people in meaningful dialogue about the Zionist movement. Starting about an hour into the day a lot of hostile people started coming past table in large groups. A lot of Arab and Muslim students started coming past and they were angry. They were yelling they were screaming, they were hurling insults, personal insults at us. They were swearing profanity all over the place. They were putting us off sticking their tongues out, spitting at us.I got called a Nazi several times. What else? Zionism is Nazism was one of their favourite slogans they also shouted out a bunch of the regulars viva viva Palestina, viva viva intifada, openly calling for intifada, violent uprising at York University in Toronto. Free Palestine from the river to the seayou know the chant from Hamas that says ethnically cleanse all the Jews from the land. They were openly chanting all these things. It was intimidating to say the least. Sometimes they were 40 or 50 students crowding around the table at once all yelling all screaming pushing up against us, personally insulting us. York security had to be called twice to come and disperse the mob that was crowded around our table and it was getting ugly. it was getting ugly. I was intimidatedUsually I don’t feel in danger on campus. Today I did feel in danger. Today I did feel endangered. If security hadn’t come I don’t know what would have happened. They were you know 40 to 50 angry Palestinian people who were openly supporting Hamas by the way, they were saying there’s no right for a Jewish state to exist, they want to wipe Israel completely off the map, we’re colonialist Zionist oppressive evil entity yada yada you know the story, classic antisemitism. It was scary, it was demoralizing, it was upsetting, it was extremely disappointing. Sometimes we don’t hear on social media, in actual news on TV about what’s going on on campuses. There’s serious stuff going on on campuses at York University as well as many other universities in Canada and around North America are hot beds for antisemitism, hating Israel, delegitimizing the Jewish people in the Jewish state and radicalizing students. It was very upsetting, but it was important to see people’s true colours today, and the kind of antisemitism that I’m not even going to say is masquerading as anti-Zionism because when people come up to the table today and say that Jews control the world that’s not anti-Zionism, that’s open antisemitism, and it was very upsetting today but it was also very enlightening. The work needs to continue, pro-Israel Zionist work needs to continue. We need to be on campus, we need to have a presence and we need to attempt to educate people and unbrainwash them from the antisemitic hate that they’ve gotten into in this day and age. So I’m very grateful to York security who came, protected us today and all the pro-Israel students who stopped past the table. We’re gonna keep doing the work and hopefully we’re making a difference. Happy Holiday everyone, see you later.

Denmark to Revoke Citizenship from Danish ISIS Fighters

Amid concerns over returning fighters travelling to Europe from the conflict in Syria, the Danish government has announced plans to revoke citizenship from those who have taken up arms and joined terrorist groups in the Middle East.

Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said in a statement: “These are people who have turned their backs on Denmark and fought with violence against our democracy and freedom. They pose a threat to our security. They are unwanted in Denmark.

Canada: People Party’s won’t act against candidate who called Islam “pure evil” and “not compatible with democracy”

“Maxime Bernier’s People’s Party says it won’t take action against one of its candidates in Nova Scotia who called Islam ‘pure evil’ and ‘not compatible with democracy’ in numerous social media posts.”

The problem in Canada, especially under anti-Islamophobia Motion M103 — which is intended to intimidate critics of Islam — is that people are still having discussions about Islam, but now these are private ones, under pressure and fear of reprisals. Most Canadians know instinctively that it is fascist to crack down on open discussion about any doctrine. Islam is a doctrine, not a race.

Undemocratic impositions upon citizens lead to frustration and concerns about the direction of the country. Sybil Hogg, the People’s Party of Canada candidate for Sackville-Preston-Chezzetcook, posted comments on Twitter and Facebook which were deemed to be anti-Muslim. She stated that “Islam should be banned” — which indeed is contrary to the religious rights and freedoms that Canadians enjoy. Nonetheless, given the realities about jihad terror globally, the human rights abuses committed in the name of Islam and in accord with its teachings, and the current chaotic state of a once-peaceful Europe, Hogg expressed her thoughts on an issue that should be discussed: to what extent should a tolerant society tolerate a radically intolerant ideology?

Hogg later softened her position, and she stated something worthwhile amid the flurry of criticism she received: there needs to be a discussion about “Islamic entryism” into Canada under the Liberal government of Canada. She is correct, but open discussion about Islam in Canada has become taboo, as it has in many other once-free countries. The Islamic supremacist incursion into Judeo-Christian countries will continue to intensify with the stigmatization of all opposition.

“People’s Party won’t take action against N.S. candidate who called Islam ‘pure evil,’” CBC, October 10, 2019:

Maxime Bernier’s People’s Party says it won’t take action against one of its candidates in Nova Scotia who called Islam “pure evil” and “not compatible with democracy” in numerous social media posts.

Sybil Hogg, the PPC candidate for Sackville-Preston-Chezzetcook, made a series of posts on Twitter and Facebook with anti-Islam statements within the last year.

The posts include a response in March to a 2017 tweet from former Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, sent after the minister visited a mosque just days after the deadly Quebec City mosque attack. Hogg’s response: “Islam is pure evil. Islam has no place in Canadian society.”

Johanne Mennie, executive director of PPC, told CBC News the party reached out to Hogg to “understand the context within which she expressed herself” and the candidate replied that she “failed to draw the distinction between ‘Islam’ the religion and ‘Islamism’ or ‘radical Islam.’”

According to the party, Hogg said her concern “is and always has been radical Islam rather than Islam” and that she believed it was time for a “conversation about Islamism and Islamic entryism” in Canada.

When asked Wednesday night to clarify whether that response satisfied the party, the PPC confirmed it wouldn’t be taking any action against her.

As of Thursday morning, none of Hogg’s social media posts had been removed….
