Award-Winning TV News Anchor Fired Over ‘Pro-Israel’ Starbucks Cup in Turkey

Turkish newscaster fired over ‘pro-Israel’ Starbucks cup

Turkish TV network fires anchor, claiming her Starbucks coffee was a pro-Israel statement.

By: World Israel News, Vered Weiss December 27, 2023

An award-winning TV news anchor in Turkey was fired for having a Starbucks cup on her desk on air.

The problem wasn’t the clutter–it’s that Starbucks is perceived as pro-Israel in Turkey.

Meltem Günay, a 45-year-old newscaster with TGRT Haber, along with the program director, was promptly fired right after the offensive cup appeared on the desk during the broadcast.

TGRT Haber made no apologies for the abrupt sacking of the journalist, and said that someone with her experience should have “an understanding that knows the sensitivities of the Turkish people regarding Gaza.”

“We do not approve of this action of the presenter and director, whose employment contracts were terminated, and we strongly condemn it.”

The statement went on to say that the newscaster and program director were fired “for just cause” because they “acted contrary to this principle.”

Pro-Palestinian Turks have been vocal about their disapproval of Starbucks, which they see as a pro-Israel company.

On social media, Starbucks has become a persona non grata, and many activists have filmed themselves protesting in front of a Starbucks and demanding the

A Split on the Left Has Opened Up Over the Hamas-Israel War

Thu, 12/28/2023 - 14:59

The split on the left that has opened up over the Hamas-Israel war is discussed here.

…To the left, however, those Israeli victims have been to blame for the attacks they have suffered because they are “illegal settlers.” To quote Rabbi Brous, the left said that “these Israeli victims somehow deserved this terrible fate” because they were people of whom the left disapproved and were thus airbrushed out of the scope of human sympathy altogether.

Now these leftists are crying because suddenly, they feel the hot breath of the Jew-haters on their own necks. For such “progressives,” it’s all about them. It always was all about them.

These people have supported Muslims against all adverse comment, denouncing any critics instead as “Islamophobic.” As a result, the profound and lethal Jew-hatred that is rampant throughout the Muslim world is ignored or denied.

Britain’s Muslim community said it was “deeply upset” by Starmer’s Gaza ceasefire remark. Yet its leaders have failed to denounce Hamas or express horror at the pogrom or sympathy for the Israeli victims.

For Starmer, Muslim support is critical to his electoral prospects. There are 14 times as many Muslims in Britain as there are Jews. In the 2019 general election, nearly 80% of Muslims voted Labour.

But Starmer is so far ahead in the polls that even the loss of Muslim support is unlikely to prevent him from becoming Prime Minister. Besides, where can Muslim voters, disaffected from Labour, now go? The Conservative Party, under Rishi Sunak, is even more supportive of Israel than the Labour Party. The Muslim voters can simply stay home, thus reducing their political power. And either Sunak or Starmer — both anathema to the Muslims — will continue to support Israel’s war on Hamas.

Just 0.5% of the British public is Jewish, and only about one-fifth of them vote Labour. There are just five parliamentary constituencies where Jews make up more than 10% of the population. In contrast, there are 108 constituencies which are at least 10% Muslim. Labour won 83% of those seats at the last election.

But support for Israel in the U.K. is not limited to Jews. Many people in the U.K. have been appalled by the October 7 pogrom. And more are beginning to connect the dots of the Muslim war against Israel with the Muslim war against non-Muslims being waged, so far largely nonviolently, by the millions of Muslims who have been allowed to settle in the U.K. Those Muslim economic migrants have taken advantage of every benefit the generous British welfare state provides, including free or greatly subsidized housing, free medical care, free education (including vocational and language training), unemployment benefits (even without a work record in the U.K.), family allowances, and more. These Muslim migrants have been a terrific drain on the state, costing it tens of billions of pounds every year. The Muslim migrants have also created No-Go Zones in such cities as London, Manchester, Bradford, and Leicester, where non-Muslims enter at their peril. They have contributed to a huge spike in crime nationwide. Muslim criminals include the all-Pakistani grooming gangs whose members have turned young and vulnerable English girls into their sex slaves, by first getting them high on drugs and alcohol, raping them repeatedly, and then passing them around like party favors.. Tens of thousands of girls have had their lives changed forever, by becoming the victims of these creatures who regard non-Muslim girls as fair game.

It’s not just the Jewish community that’s so horrified by the mass support for barbarism displayed by the Muslim-led demonstrations and the “progressive” world. Thousands of other decent people are shocked and aghast at this evidence of a cultural monster that’s arisen in their midst.

Hundreds of thousands of British demonstrators have been chanting for the destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews with the police seemingly unable or unwilling to enforce public order laws.

The pusillanimity of the British police has been amply demonstrated by their failure for years to do anything about the grooming gangs, for fear of being attacked as “racists” and “Islamophobes.” In similar fashion, they have singularly failed to subdue anti-Israel rioters or even to stop those who tear down posters of Israeli hostages, all in the name of preserving, as the police in Manchester said, ”social peace.” But that “social peace” has been bought at the cost of leaving Jews to fend for themselves when the mostly-Muslim demonstrators curse and threaten them, or tear down with impunity those posters of the Israeli hostages.

If the “progressive left” now splits, with one part of it revealed as hideously antisemitic, anti-Western, and anti-American, and the other part beginning to realize it has been fooling itself about the morality of the left, that will be one of the three useful things to have resulted from the Oct. 7 pogrom. Another, of course, is the complete destruction of Hamas as a fighting force. And the third is the understanding, by the Israelis, that there can never be an independent Palestinian state, no matter what its size, west of the Jordan.

Islamic Terrorists Kill 10 Christians in Western Uganda, Sources Say ADF rebels vowed to ‘teach lesson’ to ‘infidels.’ By Our East Africa Correspondent
Location of Kamwenge District, Uganda. NAIROBI, Kenya, December 27, 2023 (Morning Star News) – Islamic terrorists on Dec. 19 killed 10 Christians in western Uganda, sources said.

Members of the rebel Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) mounted the attacks on Christians in western Uganda’s Kyitehurizi village, Kamwenge Sub-County in Kamwenge District at around 2 a.m., according to a Uganda official and local sources.

“I heard the attackers saying that, ‘The Christians will not celebrate the birth of Issa [Jesus] – we have to teach a lesson to these infidels for refusing our religion,’” said a young woman who escaped the attack.

She told Morning Star News that she heard wailing close to her house and managed to leave and find a hiding place.

Those who lost their lives were members of the Anglican Church of Uganda, the Pentecostal Church and the Roman Catholic Church, area sources said. Enock Tukamushaba, chairperson of Kyitehurizi village, identified 10 Christians killed as 3-year-old Mary Kyomuhangi; Rossete Kugonza; Princess Ahumuza; Margaret Bunyazaki; Tugume; Esther Kurihura; Glorious Arindwaruhanga; Mesulamu; Bagiriana and Panddy.

More the 200 people were able to flee, but the assailants burned down their houses. Richard Baguma, a 35-year-old member of the Anglican Church of Uganda, said he escaped but lost all his belongings, including crops and farm products.

Prominent Austrian University Severs Ties with Harvard Over Antisemitism Concerns

Austrian university severs ties with Harvard over antisemitism concerns

Presidents from MIT, Harvard, and UPenn testified following a Department of Education investigation into rising antisemitic incidents since the Hamas terror attack on Israel.

By Jerusalem Post, December 26, 2023:

The Lauder Business School, a notable institution in Vienna catering to a diverse student body, including Israelis, has recently announced the cessation of its collaboration with Harvard University. This decision arose amidst concerns regarding the escalation of antisemitism on the Harvard campus and the perceived lack of appropriate response from its leadership.

According to a statement on behalf of the Austrian university, the partnership, which commenced in 2014 as part of the Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness at Harvard Business School, symbolized Lauder Business School’s “dedication to global educational collaborations.” However, the unfolding events at Harvard have prompted a reevaluation. “In light of the recent developments, Lauder Business School has decided to withdraw from this network, thereby expressing solidarity with the Jewish student community at Harvard,” the school stated.

Earlier this month, Harvard University President Claudine Gay did not provide a clear condemnation of the concept of Jewish genocide during a Congressional hearing.

In the five-hour congressional hearing on antisemitism on campuses, presidents from MIT, Harvard, and UPenn testified following a Department of Education investigation into rising antisemitic incidents since the Hamas terror attack on Israel. The hearing, which focused on the inability of university presidents, including UPenn’s, to unequivocally condemn calls for the genocide of Jews, led to President Liz Magill’s resignation after pressure from donors and criticism over her testimony and prompted a US House of Representatives committee to investigate the three involved universities.

Emphasizing the importance of ethical alignment in partnerships, a statement on behalf of the school expressed, “Our university is proud to create partnerships, but these must consistently align with our moral standards and criteria.”

Julius Demm, the rector of Lauder Business School, conveyed his institution’s stance in a press release: “We have been engaged in long-standing collaborations with Israeli universities. Since 2014, our partnership with Professor Mike Porter at Harvard University represented a significant aspect of our international engagements. However, given the recent incidents, we are announcing our withdrawal from the Harvard network and are expressing our unwavering support for the Jewish student community at Harvard.”

The Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness at Harvard Business School is designed to be taught at selected universities around the world.

Lauder Business School, an English-language business school in Vienna, operates as a “University of Applied Sciences” within the Austrian education system. Established in 2003 with financial backing from Ronald S. Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress, the school currently enrolls approximately 400 students in various programs, creating an international educational atmosphere.

Michigan Supreme Court Rejects Democrats’ Unconstitutional Plot to Remove Trump from Ballot

Michigan Supreme Court rejects attempt to remove Trump from ballot

Ruling keeps Trump on Michigan’s 2024 primary ballot

By Greg Norman, Fox News, December 27, 2023:

The Michigan Supreme Court has rejected an attempt to remove former President Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 Republican primary ballot.

The decision comes after the Colorado Supreme Court last week disqualified Trump from appearing on that state’s ballots in 2024. The disqualification, which was made under the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, is related to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021.

“Significantly, Colorado’s election laws differ from Michigan’s laws in a material way that is directly relevant to why the appellants in this case are not entitled to the relief they seek concerning the presidential primary election in Michigan,” Justice Elizabeth Welch wrote Wednesday, explaining the court’s ruling.

Welch said, “appellants argue that the political parties are state actors for purposes of putting forward candidates for the presidential primary, and thus, the political parties are subject to the United States Constitution.”

“The appellants have also notified this Court that on December 19, 2023, a majority of the Colorado Supreme Court held that Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution and that therefore, under the Colorado Election Code, it would be wrongful for the Colorado Secretary of State to list him as a candidate on the Colorado Republican presidential primary ballot in 2024,” she continued.

Welch noted that the Colorado ruling “was preceded by a lengthy evidentiary proceeding in a trial court that developed the factual record necessary to resolve the complicated legal questions at issue,” and that the “effect of the decision from Colorado has been stayed for a short period, and Trump has indicated his intent to seek leave to appeal in the United States Supreme Court,.”

“I Want All the White People Dead!” Deranged Racist Who Stabbed Two Teenage Girls in Grand Central Station Had 17 Prior Arrests In Last Couple of Months Alone

Wed, 12/27/2023 - 14:56

Two teenage girls were stabbed inside Grand Central Terminal on Christmas Day.

Officials said two girls, 14 and 16 years old, were attacked while inside the Grand Central Dining Concourse around 11:30 a.m. Monday morning.
On Monday morning, Steven Hutcherson shouted “I want all the white people dead” before suddenly lunging at the teens, tourist visiting from South America, cops and police sources said.

The 16-year-old girl was stabbed in the back and her younger sister was stabbed in the thigh. Both were hospitalized for minor injuries
‘He has 17 prior arrests…In the last few months alone, he was picked up for multiple weapon possession charges…’

Accused Grand Central stabber shouldn’t have been out after threatening Bronx man two weeks before slicing teen tourists

By NY Post, December 27, 2023:

The deranged attacker who allegedly stabbed two teenage tourists at Grand Central Terminal never should have been let out after he threatened a man in the Bronx just last month, the victim in that case said Tuesday.

Yussif Abdullahi, 46, was outraged after learning that Steven Hutcherson, 36, had been cut loose by a Bronx judge — just two weeks before he allegedly randomly knifed a 14-year-old girl and her 16-year-old sister as they enjoyed a Christmas Day meal with their family at a restaurant in the Grand Central concourse.

“They shouldn’t have let him out [of jail]. I don’t believe it,” he told The Post.

Abdullahi said his Nov. 7 run-in with Hutcherson was the most dangerous encounter he’s had since he moved to the US from Ghana in 2008.

He’d been working outside a freight truck depot in Hunts Point when he said he saw Hutcherson allegedly attacking a woman.

Hutcherson — a homeless man with a lengthy rap sheet and history of mental illness — then suddenly turned his ire on Abdullahi, yelling: “Why are you working for white people? I’m going to kill this man!”

“I’m gonna shoot you. I don’t care what kind of green card the government gave you,” Hutcherson said, according to the criminal complaint against him. “Open your mouth and say something. I will shoot you right now.”

The ‘Progressive Left’ Has Abandoned Israel

Wed, 12/27/2023 - 14:30

In the U.K., as in the U.S. with the “Squad” in Congress, many in the so-called “progressive left” have abandoned Israel. For those “progressives” who still remain supporters of the Jewish state, the sense of abandonment is palpable. This split in the left is discussed here.

When Sir Keir Starmer became leader of Britain’s Labour Party after the hard-left Jeremy Corbyn was unseated, he vowed to rid it of the antisemitism that had exploded under Corbyn’s viciously anti-Israel leadership.

He purged the party’s most egregious antisemites and embarked on serious bridge-building with Britain’s Jewish community.

Many British Jews decided as a result that the party was once again a safe harbor. Now, however, in the wake of the Hamas pogrom on Oct. 7 and in the war that has followed, they have discovered that the Labour waters are still teeming with sharks.

True, Starmer is holding the line he took from the start, standing alongside Conservative Prime Minister Rishi Sunak in support of Israel’s right to defend itself against existential attack. But Starmer is under enormous pressure from a large section of his still widely anti-Israel party to withdraw that support.

Calls for a ceasefire have come from the Scottish Labour leader, Anas Sarwar; the Labour mayor of London, Sadiq Khan; and the Labour mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham. At least 13 shadow ministers have also joined calls for an end to the fighting, and 23 of the party’s local councilors have resigned….

So far Starmer is standing firm, when he has had several occasions on which he could have distanced himself from Israel’s campaign against Hamas. He has never done so; he’s not for turning; ever since he booted Jeremy Corbyn from the party, and took on the Corbynites for their antisemitism, with many of them leaving the Labour Party as a result, he has shown his “mettle more attractive.”

But the pressure mounts.

This pressure comes from two overlapping constituencies: the anti-Israel left and the Muslim community. A similar problem is now on display within the Democratic Party and “progressive” circles in America.

When the House overwhelmingly passed a resolution condemning Hamas for its barbaric atrocities, 15 Democrats refused to vote for it. True to form, Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) called for an end to “unconditional” military aid to Israel while Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) said “this heartbreaking cycle of violence will continue” unless the funds are cut off.

An open letter from 100 Columbia professors called the pogrom in which Hamas butchered children in front of their parents, raped women, and burned and beheaded babies “a military resistance by a people who had endured crushing and unrelenting state violence from an occupying power.”

Some American Jews on the left have also supported the morally degenerate demand to prevent Israel from stopping the Iran-backed genocide. At a campaign event in Minneapolis, Rabbi Jessica Rosenberg shouted at U.S. President Joe Biden: “As a rabbi, I need you to call for a ceasefire right now.”

Such attitudes have caused shock and disorientation among some of these left-wingers’ erstwhile ideological allies. They are aghast to discover that people who have been shoulder to shoulder with them across the left-wing landscape—from identity politics to opposing Israel’s so-called “occupation” of the “West Bank”—are displaying indifference towards or even support for a depraved genocidal agenda against the Jewish people, and worse still, are now even accusing them of sharing in the oppression of the Palestinians.

The air is suddenly loud with their cries of anguish and betrayal.

Rabbi Sharon Brous, a “progressive” activist in Los Angeles who regularly slams Israel, described from the pulpit, with her voice reportedly breaking, her horror and feelings of “existential loneliness.” “The clear message from many in the world, especially from our world—those who claim to care the most about justice and human dignity—is that these Israeli victims somehow deserved this terrible fate,” she lamented.

What took her, and many others, so long to see the handwriting on the wall? The hard left long ago abandoned Israel, embraced the Palestinian cause, and now has gone so far as to defend the Hamas pogrom on October 7 as a “legitimate act of resistance.”

Biden Regime Refuses Israeli Request for Vital Apache Attack Helicopters

Israel is on the front lines of the global jihad. She is the thin blue line that keeps jihadi terror at bay against the West. Look at how Islamic terror proxies are turning major cities in the West (USA and Europe) into war zones. Denying Israel cripples the West’s war in defense of freedom and Western civilization. This will come back to bite us – in spades.

US rejects Israeli request for vital Apache attack helicopters

The IAF currently has only two squadrons of the vitally-needed air asset, and they are being flown around the clock to support troops in the field.

By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News

The United States has rejected an Israeli request for Apache attack helicopters to help its forces fight Hamas during the ongoing war in the Gaza Strip, but the answer may not be final, Ynet reported Tuesday.

The IDF asked the Pentagon if it could purchase the choppers a few weeks ago, and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant also pressed his American counterpart, Lloyd Austin, for them, when the Secretary of Defense visited Israel last week, said the news site.

“Security sources” told Ynet that Israel is not taking “no” for an answer and that the Americans have not put a decisive kibosh on the acquisition.

The IAF currently has only 48 of these aircraft, which are being flown around the clock to support troops in Gaza and conduct airstrikes to deter Hezbollah terrorists in the north. They are so vitally needed that overage pilots in their fifties have been called out of retirement to fly combat missions so that the regular pilots and active reservists can rest a little more.

There is one squadron each of the AH-64A and D varieties, which have already been decommissioned in the U.S. as their Boeing manufacturer has gone on to produce the faster, stronger, AH-64E that has improved avionics, radar and other systems. The IAF has mulled for years whether to invest in the E version or wait for an even more advanced attack helicopter that won’t be on sale until the early 2030s.

The decision to go with 20 of the currently available Apache E’s was reportedly made in May, but none had yet been ordered. At the time, the idea was not to add another squadron but replace the oldest aircraft, for which it is very difficult to find spare parts anymore. Considering current circumstances, the phase-out may be drawn out over a longer period of time.

Is There Really a ‘Disproportionate Death Rate’ Among Gazans?

Tue, 12/26/2023 - 15:04

The “allegedly disproportionate death rate” among Gazans is a claim based on three things:

1) a willingness to accept Hamas’ figures about casualties, which have not been confirmed by any other body. Such unquestioning acceptance is curious, given that Hamas has a record of lying about such things, as in its description of the so-called “Jenin massacre” in which, it claimed, “500 civilians” had been killed. The actual number of those killed turned out to be 52 terrorists. Hamas also claimed this past October that an Israeli airstrike hit the Al-Ahli hospital in Gaza, “killing 500 civilians.” The truth turned out to be quite different: it was not an Israeli airstrike, but a rocket launched by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad from Gaza, that misfired and fell on the parking lot of the Al-Ahli hospital, and not on the hospital itself, which remained unscathed. And Western intelligence sources concluded that not 500 people were killed, but between 10 and 50. Yet Hamas continues to insist on its original story of 500 dead as a result of an Israeli airstrike on Al-Ahli hospital. Hamas never corrects its tall tales. We have no idea how many civilians have really been killed in Gaza; we only know the figures put out by Hamas, a group that consistently lies.

2) Hamas provides a total figure for dead Gazans, but does not break it down further between civilians and combatants. This figure is parroted by the Western media — they currently report “more than 20,000 dead in Gaza” — without that media explaining that this figure comes from Hamas and has not been independently verified. Furthermore, the media misleads people into believing that those “20,000” dead consist entirely of civilians. Nowhere in the mainstream media will you hear that the IDF believes it has killed, by the end of December, about 9,000 members of Hamas (up from 7,000 three weeks ago), which means the total number of Gazan civilians killed is about 11,000. The ratio of civilian-to-combatant deaths in Gaza — 11 to 9 — is an unheard-of figure in modern urban warfare. Even the Americans could not bring their own military’s performance in Iraq below 3 civilians killed for every combatant.

Israel does not deliberately target civilians anywhere in Gaza. They are collateral damage, greatly regretted by the IDF, that does everything it can to limit their number. It does this in three ways. First, the IDF warns large numbers of Gazans away from areas that are soon to become part of. the battlefield. It dropped 1.5 million leaflets over northern Gaza in the first weeks of the war, urging residents to move south, beyond the Wadi Gaza, to avoid being caught in a battle zone. Nearly one million Gazans heeded the warnings and moved south. Hamas tried to prevent them from leaving; it wanted to hold onto as many human shields as possible. It even fired on, and killed, civilians trying to flee along Salah al-Din Street, the north-south corridor that cuts straight through Gaza. Second, when the IDF is about to target a civilian structure — school, mosque, apartment building — it warns residents of those buildings, and other civilians nearby, to leave those structures. It does this by means of messaging, telephoning, leafletting, and use of the “knock on the roof” technique. Tens of thousands of civilian lives in Gaza have been saved as a result of those warnings.

Of course, Israel pays a stiff price for such a policy: it not only warns civilians, but Hamas members, about where Israel will soon attack, giving them time to hide in their underground tunnels. It’s a price the IDF has been willing to pay. Third, when Israeli pilots see signs of many civilians present at or near an impending target, they frequently call off the mission. None of these ways that Israel minimizes casualties has received anything like the attention they deserve; such information would help make others realize that the IDF is doing a great deal to lessen harm to civilians, and its bombing — pace Joseph Biden — is not “indiscriminate” but exceedingly precise. For many people who are consumed with anti-Israel animus, such a revelation would never do.

As of December 9, the IDF believes it has killed 7,000 combatants. That would mean that that 10,00 civilians had been killed, and 7,000 combatants, resulting in a civilian-to-combatant ratio of 10 to 7. Furthermore, the UN itself claims that in all the wars fought since World War II, the civilian-to-combatant ratio has been 9 to 1. Many countries — Russia, China, Syria, Turkey — make no to minimize civilian casualties. The American and British armies are different; in Iraq the ratio of civilian-to-combatant deaths was 3 to 1; in Afghanistan, it was between 3 and 5 to 1, according to the commander of the British troops in Afghanistan, Colonel Richard Kemp. But Israel’s achievement in Gaza, of a 10 to 7 civilian-to-combatant ratio, is astounding, without parallel in the annals of urban warfare.

Red Cross refused to give medicine to Gaza hostages, Netanyahu tells families

“We are sparing no effort, both seen and hidden, to bring all of the hostages home,” Netanyahu told hostages’ families at the Knesset plenum.

By: Jerusalem Post, December 25, 2023:

An International Committee of the Red Cross representative refused to bring a box of life-saving medicine to Israelis taken hostage in Gaza, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed in a Monday address to the Knesset plenum.

“I met with the Red Cross; I handed them a box of medicine for some of the hostages shown here. Some of them really need it…I told a representative to take this box to Rafah; she said no. It was a difficult conversation,” he told a special Knesset session attended by families of hostages, who were heard shouting “Now!” at the prime minister as he explained the return of all hostages would take time.

“We are sparing no effort, both seen and hidden, to bring all of the hostages home,” Netanyahu said.

“I just returned from Gaza; I met a division of reservists on the field,” he told his faction. “All of them asked me for one thing only: We must not stop; we must keep going until the end,” he said, in reference to the IDF’s war on Hamas in Gaza.

“The papers and television studios said we are stopping; They also said we would stop after the first hostage deal – and we kept going,” Netanyahu continued. “We do not stop; we keep fighting, and we will be deepening the fighting over the coming days; this will be a long battle, and it is not close to being over.”

Mon, 12/25/2023 - 18:00

No media coverage on this. As one commenter so succinctly put it, certainly no media will report the ‘remarkable – the downright eerie – similarity between the ferocity of these attacks, and the ferocity of the Gazan Muslim jihad raids on Jewish farming villages in southern Israel on October 7. They wouldn’t dare, because that might make people realize that the Gazan Muslim attack on Jews in Israel, is but small part of a global jihad aimed at killing, subjugating, or forced conversion of everybody who is not a Muslim.

“Black Christmas In Plateau As Assailants Kill Over 70,” by Yemi Kosoko, Channels TV, December 25, 2023:

No fewer than seventy six persons were reportedly killed by assailants in fresh attacks on several communities of Bokkos and Barkin-Ladi Local Government Areas of Plateau State.

Transition Implementation Committee Chairman of Bokkos Local Government Area, Monday Kasa, told Channels Television that the coordinated attacks occurred on Saturday and lasted into the Christmas Eve when residents were already in the festive mood.

The local government boss explained further that the casualty figures is increasing as more dead bodies are been recovered by the team of security personnel, local vigilantes and hunters who are still going through the bushes combing the communities in search of missing persons who were ambushed during the attacks.

He added that several houses were set ablaze by the attackers who also looted farm produce and destroyed properties in the process.

The unprovoked attacks attracted the attention of Governor Caleb Mutfwang, who condemned the act and called for swift action and community vigilance in the communities….

 How Democratic Socialists of America Educators Spread Far-Left ‘Poison’ in America’s schools

Sun, 12/24/2023 - 15:00

This is what socialist student activist Rudi Dutschke meant by the long march through the institutions – the left’s strategy to create radical change in government by becoming part of it.

Roger Kimball wrote that it was by these means of “insinuation and infiltration” that the countercultural ideals of Herbert Marcuse gained influence. Helmut Schelsky wrote that the long march was part of a strategy towards “the conquest of the system” through efforts to discredit the values and processes of constitutional democracy.

In his 1972 book, Counterrevolution and Revolt, Marcuse wrote:[9]

To extend the base of the student movement, Rudi Dutschke has proposed the strategy of the long march through the institutions: working against the established institutions while working within them, but not simply by ‘boring from within’, rather by ‘doing the job’, learning (how to program and read computers, how to teach at all levels of education, how to use the mass media, how to organize production, how to recognize and eschew planned obsolescence, how to design, et cetera), and at the same time preserving one’s own consciousness in working with others.
The long march includes the concerted effort to build up counterinstitutions. They have long been an aim of the movement, but the lack of funds was greatly responsible for their weakness and their inferior quality. They must be made competitive. This is especially important for the development of radical, “free” media. The fact that the radical Left has no equal access to the great chains of information and indoctrination is largely responsible for its isolation.

More specifically, Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937), a Marxist intellectual and politician, laid down tactics specific strategems on how to bring down a free, capitalist society outside of direct revolution.

Far from being content with a mere uprising, therefore, Gramsci believed that it was necessary first to delegitimize the dominant belief systems of the predominant groups and to create a “counter-hegemony” (i.e., a new system of values for the subordinate groups) before the marginalized could be empowered. Moreover, because hegemonic values permeate all spheres of civil society — schools, churches, the media, voluntary associations — civil society itself, he argued, is the great battleground in the struggle for hegemony, the “war of position.” From this point, too, followed a corollary for which Gramsci should be known (and which is echoed in the feminist slogan) — that all life is “political.” Thus, private life, the work place, religion, philosophy, art, and literature, and civil society, in general, are contested battlegrounds in the struggle to achieve societal transformation.

Gramsci’s long reach

The relation of all these abstractions to the nuts and bolts of American politics is, as the record shows, surprisingly direct. All of Gramsci’s most innovative ideas — for example, that dominant and subordinate groups based on race, ethnicity, and gender are engaged in struggles over power; that the “personal is political”; and that all knowledge and morality are social constructions — are assumptions and presuppositions at the very center of today’s politics. So too is the very core of the Gramscian-Hegelian world view — group-based morality, or the idea that what is moral is what serves the interests of “oppressed” or “marginalized” ethnic, racial, and gender groups.

 How DSA educators spread far-left ‘poison’ in America’s schools

By Ryan King, NY Post, Dec. 19, 2023, 12:13 p.m. ET

Members of the Democratic Socialists of America have quietly gained leadership posts in K-12 education to push anti-capitalist and anti-Israel views on youngsters across the US, according to a parental rights watchdog group.

Parents Defending Education, a grassroots organization that backs the “restoration” of non-political schooling, has identified dozens of DSA members who have landed or sought top school board and teachers union positions in at least 15 states — from California to Kentucky and from New York to Texas.

“The Democratic Socialists of America, or DSA, has long had the goal of using the K-12 system as a way to proselytize to a captive audience of other people’s children,” Parents Defending Education outreach director Erika Sanzi told The Post.

“Their anti-Jewish and anti-Israel messages in the K-12 context are not at all new but many more people have become aware of them since October 7th,” she added. “The DSA is poison in schools.”

The DSA became infamous after boosting a hate-filled pro-Palestinian rally in Times Square a day after Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on southern Israel, which killed an estimated 1,200 people — including 33 Americans.

The demonstration featured protesters burning and stomping on an Israeli flag and at least one flashing a swastika image on a phone to taunt counter-protesters who supported the Jewish state.

Muslims planned jihad massacre at Cologne cathedral

By Robert Spencer, Dec 23, 202:

“Targets could also include Christmas services in Cologne, Vienna and Madrid.”

The celebrations of diversity are taking on a special vibrancy this Christmas!

“Several arrests: Islamists planned an attack on Cologne Cathedral,” translated from “Mehrere Festnahmen: Islamisten planten Anschlag auf den Kölner Dom,” by Frank Schneider, Bild, December 23, 2023:

Cologne – The security authorities in Austria, Germany and Spain have received indications that an Islamist terrorist cell may want to carry out several attacks in Europe on New Year’s Eve or Christmas.

Targets could also include Christmas services in Cologne, Vienna and Madrid. According to BILD information, the first arrests by special units are said to have taken place today in Vienna and also one in Germany.

Since 2010, 18 Islamist terrorist attacks have been prevented in Germany.

The Vienna police therefore reported in the evening: “Due to a current threat assessment by the Office for the Protection of the Constitution and the continued increased terror alert level, there is generally an increased risk in Austria during the Christmas holidays.

Since terrorist actors across Europe are calling for attacks on Christian events – especially around December 24th – the security authorities have increased the corresponding protective measures in public spaces in Vienna and the federal states. “Dangerous places or objects in particular are increasingly monitored and guarded.”

In Cologne, the Cologne Cathedral is to be searched in the evening. The police operations management wants to make sure that dangerous objects have not already been deposited in the church. That’s why explosives detection dogs will also be used.

A spokesman for the Cologne police: “Due to a warning of a threat to Cologne Cathedral, the Cologne police will take special protective measures beginning this evening. The police will not comment on details of the available findings due to ongoing investigations by the police state security service.”

Cologne’s police chief Michael Esser, who is leading the operation, explains the security measures: “Even if the reference refers to New Year’s Eve, we will take everything into account this evening to ensure the safety of cathedral visitors on Christmas Eve. In coordination with the security officer of the cathedral chapter, the cathedral will be searched with sniffer dogs after the evening mass and then locked. Tomorrow all visitors will be screened before entering the church.”

The police and the Cologne Cathedral Chapter recommend avoiding bags and arriving early to the masses.

► In Vienna, St. Stephen’s Cathedral is said to be particularly at risk. The Vienna police even announce access controls with submachine guns.

“These precautionary measures serve to maintain the general safety of the people in Austria. There will be increased police precautions over the Christmas holidays. Civilian and uniformed emergency services with special equipment and long weapons are deployed. Police attention is focused primarily on churches and religious events, especially church services and Christmas markets. The measures are taken depending on necessity and can also include access controls if necessary. Visitors to events and church services are asked to bring a photo ID and to allow more time than usual.”

Mother of Kidnapped Israeli Girl Harassed in New York By Genocidal Jew-Haters

Sun, 12/24/2023 - 13:00

Ayelet Levy Shacher is the mother of Naama Levy. She’s the young Israeli girl kidnapped by Hamas. In Gaza, video (below) captures a SUV style vehicle driving up and stopping. A terrorist gets out, waving a pistol shouting Allah Akbar. He opens the tailgate and drags out Naama, with blood clearing showing on her buttocks, crotch, arms, etc. He then forces her into the back seat.

Ms. Levy was in New York at an event working to raise awareness for those still in Gaza. She was screamed at by genocidal Jew hating protesters. The NYPD stood by and did nothing. Absolutely sickening.

Watch: The episode is on the Mahyar Tousi TV channel on You Tube titled “Islamist Protesters TARGET Mother of Israeli Hostage in New York.”

These demons aren’t human, they are subhuman.

Obama Pressured Harvard to Keep DEI Misanthrope Claudine Gay

Sat, 12/23/2023 - 16:00

A new report has revealed that former President Barack Obama has privately lobbied for support of Harvard President Claudine Gay, who came under fire for statements made during a congressional hearing on antisemitism, and then for allegations of plagiarism. Like Claudine Gay, Obama was a mediocre student with no scholarly work or accomplishment of any kind, who rose to unimaginable heights because of affirmative action and woke promotion.

“According to a source familiar with the matter,” The Jewish Insider wrote, “Obama, a Harvard graduate, had privately lobbied on Gay’s behalf as she faced pressure to resign in the wake of her disastrous appearance before the congressional hearing on antisemitism.”

Anyone who thought affirmative action was merely some benign feel-good (though thoroughly unfair and insidious) scheme surely must now see how destructive and wicked its effects. The cataclysm of affirmative action policies was the Obama’s presidency, the most ruinous period in American history.

Obama is a Harvard graduate, militant Marxist, and funded Hamas as POTUS

Is Obama working behind the scenes to prop up Claudine Gay despite her anti-semitism & plagiarism?

We all know the answer https://t.co/UUNLIa0cKE

— DC_Draino (@DC_Draino) December 22, 2023

Obama himself “transferred” into the Ivy League with mediocre grades, and his Columbia college thesis has mysteriously disappeared. So this “constitutional law professor” who has never published a single scholarly article is an even bigger academic fraud than Claudine Gay. https://t.co/ahLRkVpYaL

Obama privately lobbied on Harvard President Claudine Gay’s behalf amid antisemitism controversy: Report

‘It sounded like people were being asked to close ranks,’ a source said of Obama’s involvement

By Nikolas Lanum Fox News, December 22, 2023 12:56pm EST

A confidential source familiar with the matter told Jewish Insider on Tuesday that Obama, a Harvard graduate, had privately lobbied on Gay’s behalf following her congressional appearance about antisemitism and threats against Jewish students on the Ivy League campus.

“It sounded like people were being asked to close ranks to keep the broader administration stable—including its composition,” the source said of Obama’s involvement.

In early December, Gay sat before the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, where she was asked whether calling for the genocide of Jews on campus violates the university’s codes of conduct related to bullying and harassment.

Her claim that the alleged conduct would only warrant a response from the school based on the “context” drew criticism across social media and even prompted a response from the White House.

Gay issued an apology after the hearing and the fellows of the Harvard Corporation, the university’s highest government body, released a Dec. 12 statement backing the Harvard president despite widespread calls for her resignation. The board also addressed allegations of plagiarism regarding Gay’s academic writing first flagged in October.

On Tuesday, Harvard’s research integrity officer, Stacey Springs, reportedly received a complaint detailing more than 40 allegations of plagiarism — ranging from missing quotation marks around a few phrases or sentences to entire paragraphs lifted verbatim — regarding Gay’s academic works, according to a document obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The Harvard Corporation also released a summary of a review Wednesday evening, saying Gay will request three corrections from Harvard’s Office of the Provost regarding her 1997 Ph.D. dissertation, The Harvard Crimson reported.

Through additional review, Harvard said it found two additional instances of “duplicative language without appropriate attribution.”
[…]
That same day, House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., sent a letter to Harvard Corporation Senior Fellow Penny Pritzker demanding more information about the university’s handling of plagiarism allegations against Gay and “the unequal application of Harvard’s Honor Code.”

The controversy has put a spotlight on Pritzker, a former Obama administration official and Chicago hotel billionaire who donated $100 million to Harvard last month.

Last December, Pritzker personally led the search committee that named Gay president, calling her a “remarkable leader who is profoundly devoted to sustaining and enhancing Harvard’s academic excellence” at the time.
