Disputing Muslim Persecution of Christians

London 1940

© January 19, 2017

On January 8th, I posted a Shamim Mahmood submission. Shamim’s submission was a slim rundown on his advocacy as a journalist and Rights activist for his fellow Christians in Pakistan. The rundown is to demonstrate Shamim is a worthy cause to support. Pakistanis don’t make a lot of cash and Pakistani-Christians by the majority earn even less.

By the way, Shamim is still worthy of Western aid that is best sent via Western Union.

First contact Shamim in case he has found an easy way to donate. I like to use Western Union sending money with this LINK to the destination of Islamabad (Contact Shamim in case he has changed cities). Shamim’s email is shamimpakistan@gmail.com, Western Union may ask for Shamim’s phone - +92-300-642-4560

A well-meaning Muslim gal left a comment to that Shamim submission politely claiming the persecution of Christians and other non-Sunni Muslims was a myth used to get money of donors under false pretenses.

Below is that discussion back and forth between me and Aisha. Then follows a query by me to Shamim about Aisha’s perception. Which is followed by Shamim’s email response.


this is a blatant lie just to raise money, in fact there are Christians in my area and they are very safe and happy with their families. We have good relations with each other, we share our happy and sad moments with each other, we eat together and celebrate together.

This is a failed try to snatch money from people.

+Aisha Khan Aisha I am guessing you are a Muslim. If my guess is correct, I can make a couple of assumptions from your comment:


1) You are a deluded Muslim with your head in the sand.

2) You are a Muslim Propagandist spreading deceit about the actual brutality of Sunni Muslims against all Pakistani minorities not just Christians (Ironically Pakistani Sunnis also are brutal toward Pakistani Shias & Ahmadiyyas - both of which consider themselves Muslims).


Aisha, this blog is full of reports about Muslim brutality against Christians not only in Pakistan but also in other Muslim dominated nations. To allude anything else is the actual lie.

Indeed Aisha, here is a link of the most recent use of the Pakistan Blasphemy Law that is obviously a FALSE allegation against a Christian man:

http://www.assistnews.net/index.php/component/k2/item/2524-pakistan-illiterate-christian-man-from-lahore-accused-of-blasphemy.

Using the Blasphemy Law as a vendetta is legalized terrorism, because the accused is imprisoned under horrendous conditions awaiting a death sentence or is suspiciously and mysteriously murdered awaiting the execution of a death sentence.


+John Houk Absolutely I’m a Muslimah and I’m telling you the truth, there are many Christian families in my area and they are quite safe and happy with their families. They are doing Jobs in various Govt. institutions and also their private jobs. What you are telling me is a different situation and can happen in any country. For example we all know about the wave of terrorism in Pakistan. A large number of Muslims were killed, injured in various bomb blasts and other terrorist attacks. But we can't blame other sects for this act.

We also know that America a Christian country is killing thousands of innocent people including women and children in Iraq, Afghanistan and many other countries. In the name of peace they are waging war on Muslims but we are not blaming Christians for this act of terror.

I also know there are black sheep in every community, there may be some misguided Muslims who are involved in such wrong acts but we can't blame the whole Sunni Muslims for personal act of any individual or a group of people.

Also, we have to respect each other’s faith. No one has the right to insult or humiliate other people’s faith. We must avoid such provoking acts which leads to an anarchy and crises like situation.

I think this is much worse to use a few events and get emotional sympathies of people to snatch some money.

I think this more worse than the act committed by some ignorant individuals.

I condemn both of them.

Dear Shamim

I have been having a G+ discussion with one Aisha Khan about the last submission you sent to me entitled “Keep Shamim Reporting”. The conversation has been quite polite, but she (I assume “she” in case I am mistaken)  claims your position of Sunni-Muslims persecuting religious minorities in Pakistan is a lie. And quote:

this is a blatant lie just to raise money, in fact there are Christians in my area and they very safe and happy with their families.”

I read reports from other sources other than just yours; hence, I conclude there is a huge persecution problem in Pakistan. Nonetheless, she seems quite sincere in her belief. Below is the entire discussion between me and her to date on the G+ Community Anti-Islam:


My knee-jerk reaction is that Aisha is calling you and me a liar. An American colloquialism describes my emotion to being called a liar; viz., “That chaps my hide.” So, I am going to cool off about a day and blog this interaction with some further thoughts from myself. If you have any thoughts between now and the time I begin to construct an edited post, you are more than welcome to provide your perspective

Dear Brother John

I think the World is witness to it that how much Christians and other religious minorities are safe [tongue-in-cheek sarcasm] in Pakistan. The level of persecution is clearly reported and it's not only me, others have reported as well.

Seven members of [one] family in Gojra and a Christian couple in Kot Radha Kishan were burnt alive on false blasphemy accusations.

Joseph Colony Lahore where more than 70 houses, including two Churches, were set ablaze.

Even today, Christians are treated as second-class citizens and in the [Pakistan] Constitution discrimination is clearly seen.

John, she is right that in many areas Christians and Muslims are living together and share their happiness and sorrows, but when it comes to a matter of religion these – Muslims - do not hesitate for a second to kill or persecute minorities.  And especially this kind of (Aisha) people become more aggressive and hit first.

Yes, there are broad minded and liberal Muslims but they are very few.

I've visited her G+ that clearly gives a message of her openness. Secondly brother, you know how much money I have raised, but issues Christians are facing [result in] day by day persecution.

Thanks now I'm going to take tea.

God bless you,

Shamim

A Few Thoughts to Aisha’s 1/16/17

Aisha wrote:

Aisha consider the facts behind these quotes:

Thirty civilians have been killed in northern Afghanistan during an Afghan special forces mission supported by Nato, an Afghan spokesman says.

Provincial officials say many of the deaths were caused by Nato air strikes.

The air support was called in after troops were surrounded by Taliban militants, who took shelter in civilian homes, the spokesman said.


"US forces conducted strikes in Kunduz to defend friendly forces. All civilian casualty claims will be investigated," the Nato-led Resolute Support mission said.


A further 25 civilians were wounded in the operation in Kunduz, Mr Danish said, and 26 Taliban fighters were killed, including two commanders. The Taliban say only three of their fighters were killed.

US soldiers killed

The US military said its soldiers died after coming under fire during a mission to clear a Taliban position.

Two other US soldiers were wounded, it said. General John Nicholson said the soldiers' loss was "heartbreaking".

Taliban fighters came close to overrunning Kunduz city last month and the security situation in the area remains febrile. The insurgents control large areas of the province around the city.

US combat operations against the Taliban officially ended in 2014 but special forces have continued to provide support to Afghan troops.

Afghan forces have suffered thousands of casualties, with more than 5,500 killed in the first eight months of 2016. READ ENTIRETY (Afghanistan Nato: '30 civilians killed' during Taliban fighting; By Reuters; BBC; 11/3/16)

And more

The war in Afghanistan continues destroying lives, due to the direct consequences of violence and the war-induced breakdown of public health, security, and infrastructure. Civilians have been killed by crossfire, improvised explosive devices (IEDs), assassinations, bombings, and night raids into houses of suspected insurgents. Even in the absence of fighting, unexploded ordnance from previous wars and United States cluster bombs continue to kill. 


About 104,000 people have been killed in the Afghanistan war since 2001. More than 31,000 of those killed have been civilians. An additional 41,000 civilians have been injured since 2001. READ ENTIRETY (AFGHAN CIVILIANS; WATSON INSTITUTE FOR INTERNATIONAL AND PUBLIC AFFAIRS)

And more

ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN — A joint military operation in northern Afghanistan in early November killed 33 Afghan civilians and wounded 27, the U.S. military said Thursday in releasing details of its investigation into the incident.

The attack in Boz village in restive Kunduz province flattened dozens of houses, residents and Taliban insurgents said. The joint operation was conducted to capture Taliban leaders who were plotting to seize the provincial capital of Kunduz, Afghan and U.S. military officials said.

"To defend themselves and Afghan forces, U.S. forces returned fire in self-defense at Taliban who were using civilian houses as firing positions," U.S. military officials said.


Afghan special forces had planned the raid against the Taliban hideout in Kunduz with the help of a small group of American military advisers. But the insurgents swiftly engaged them, opening fire from multiple civilian buildings, the U.S. military said in its investigation. [Blog Editor: Emphasis Mine]

"U.S. and Afghan forces were forced to request aerial fire support from U.S. platforms in self-defense. Aerial fires were also used to suppress Taliban who were firing on U.S. medical evacuation assets as the dead and wounded were evacuated," it said.

In Iraq

Another person said: “Before blaming Muslims for Isis, remember that Isis terrorist attacks is targeting more Muslims than any other groups.”

Many people were sharing an image bearing the slogan: “Isis is bombing Muslims in Muslim countries in the holy month of Ramadan. And you still say Isis represents Islam?”


Like in other recent attacks, Isis’ initial propaganda claim said it targeted a “gathering of the Popular Mobilisation” Committees – predominantly Shia armed groups fighting its militants alongside Iraqi security forces.

But authorities say there were many women and children among the civilian victims, and a later statement from the organisation made it clear religion was the target, saying: “The raids of the mujahedeen [holy warriors] against the Rafidha [Shia] apostates will not stop.”


Shias were also the main victims of Isis’ deadliest ever attack in Iraq, when militants massacred 670 prisoners in a raid in Badush in June 2014.

A handful of survivors recounted jihadists separating Shias and other religious minorities, driving them into the desert and lining them up on the edge of a ravine before opening fire with machine guns.

There are no definitive figures on the number of Muslims or other religious denominations killed by Isis but the huge number of Iraqi victims, where 99 per cent of the population is Muslim, suggests that the religion makes up by far the largest proportion of the dead.

American involvement in Iraq


The rate of Iraqi civilian deaths caused by US-led coalition forces has declined steadily from 2009, while the rate caused by Iraqi state forces has increased, with deaths resulting directly from actions involving US-led coalition forces falling to their smallest number ever, at a total of 19 reported by year end (down from 32 in 2010), and deaths involving Iraqi forces rising from 98 in 2010 to 147 in 2011.


Total deaths with combatants, combining IBC and official records:

Combining IBC civilian data with official Iraqi and US combatant death figures and data from the Iraq War Logs released by WikiLeaks, we estimate the documented death toll across all categories since March 2003 to be 162,000, of whom 79% were civilians.

Most deadly period of violence:

Iraq's violence peaked in late 2006 but was sustained at high levels until the second half of 2008 – nearly 90% of the deaths occurred by 2009.



Civilians killed by Gunfire Explosives Air attacks 2003 – 2011 by quarter Download data

64,575 of the civilian dead were reported killed by small arms gunfire; 39,273 by explosive weapons (such as IEDs, suicide attacks, and aerial bombardment); and 5,820by airstrikes (including cannon-fire, bombs and missiles).

Children killed:

Of the 45,779 victims for whom IBC was able to obtain age data, 3,911 (8.54%) were children under age 18.

Most-targeted group:

Police forces have been a major target, with 9,609 deaths reported - by far the largest toll of any professional group.


Civilians killed by US-led coalition

US forces killed far more Iraqi civilians than any other members of the US-led coalition, including various Iraqi military forces acting with or independently of them.3 The data on US forces killings show:

Total deaths from coalition forces:

15,141 (13%) of all documented civilian deaths were reported as being directly caused by the US-led coalition.

Children killed by coalition forces:

Of the 4,040 civilian victims of US-led coalition forces for whom age data was available, 1,201 (29%) were children.


Ø Iraq Body Count 2003-2011 -- 114,212

Ø Iraq War Logs new 'Civilian' and comparable 'Host Nation' remaining - central estimate  -- 13,750

Ø Iraq War Logs ‘Host Nation’ combatant - central estimate -- 5,575

Ø Iraq War Logs ‘Enemy’ (minus IBC overlaps) - central estimate -- 20,499

Ø Insurgents killed June-December 2003 -- 597

Ø Insurgents killed May 2004 -- 652

Ø Insurgents & Iraqi soldiers killed March 2009 -- 59

Ø Insurgents & Iraqi soldiers killed 2010–2011 – 2,187

Ø TOTAL IRAQI -- 157,531

Ø US & Coalition military killed 2003–2011 -- 4,802

Ø TOTAL -- 162,333

Official statistics

Official figures released monthly by Iraqi ministries continue to be lower than IBC’s, as in previous years, and this year more so than last. 7 However, longer-term official figures released in 2009 by the Iraqi Ministry of Human Rights show somewhat higher totals than IBC for 2004-6. This indicates, as does the WikiLeaks-published US military database, that a full accounting for the entire period from 2003 will be above, not below, IBC's present count. Unfortunately official Iraqi data is presented in aggregate form, whereas IBC's numbers are obtained from incidents individually listed on its website. This not only makes them open to public scrutiny for verification or amendment, but would allow item-by-item cross-referencing against other, similarly detailed sources.

READ ENTIRETY (Iraqi deaths from violence 2003–2011; Iraq Body Count; First published 1/2/12)

Aisha the reality about war is this: WAR IS HELL.

The history of war demonstrates civilians – innocent and not so innocent sympathizers to the enemy – is an inevitable reality. When you say Americans kill civilian men, women and children, it is a true statement. BUT it is also true that not only have Muslims killed Christians and other religious minorities in in Muslim dominated populations, they have killed themselves.

One thing to consider in Aisha’s concerns about civilian deaths by American hands IS THIS: The United States of America would not have invaded Afghanistan if the Taliban government had not stood by Usama bin Laden and al Qaeda after about 3,000 (plus) civilians on American soil with hijacked jet airliners on September 11, 2001 (WE call that cowardly infamous day “911”). If that attack had never occurred on American soil, our military would never have invaded Afghanistan. And if we never invaded Afghanistan, it is unlikely the U.S. would have invaded Iraq based on rumors of Weapons of Mass Destruction being manufactured by Saddam Hussein.

Aisha on a personal note I have to ask: What makes you think Christians and Jews can live continuously in peace side by side? Are you not aware that your prophet Muhammad’s last words in the Quran was to kill Christians and Jews? According Islamic theology, Muhammad’s last words abrogate any previous words of peace toward those he called the People of the Book.

Do you hear without cringing the Church bells ringing calling Christians to assemble and worship God openly and with loud reverence? How many Jewish Synagogues operate openly in Pakistan or any Muslim dominated society? What happens in Pakistan if a Christian publicly announces Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the only path to Salvation from a Satan dominated world? You have to realize a Christian not brainwashed by centuries of Islamic Supremicism would tell a Muslim that Muhammad was a false prophet for claiming Jesus was not the Son of God?

If you want more trust from Americans that consider themselves Christians and/or Jews, Muslim must reform their theology to not condemn others for blaspheming Islam. Just as Christians in America not knowing just how intolerant Islam is, are more than willing to accept a Mosque, Synagogue, Buddhist Temple or even a brainwashing religious cult to be on the same street as a Church. Christians may not like the idea and perhaps protest such a building that denies Christ as the Son of God, but Christians would not riot en masse over the situation resulting assault, property damage or murder.

Something to think about Aisha next time your news tells your peaceful Muslim/Christian community that Christians were slaughtered because they may have offended the Quran, Islam, Allah or Muhammad.

One Step Too Far


The United Nations (UN) has been unjustifiably harsh to the Jewish State of Israel for decades. The UN has taken up the cause of Muslim nations that are closer than despotism than a democratic republic process of governing. As most Americans I am a supporter of Israel’s existence unlike most Muslims, especially the Muslim Arabs that have adopted the name Palestinian.

The UN hatred of Israel is good enough for me for America to pull out of the UN and defund our support for that now very crooked international body. AND YET there are many more reasons for the USA to leave the UN. Justin Smith goes over some of those reasons in which the UN has an agenda to fray the sovereign borders of all nations.

One Step Too Far
Repeal the United Nations Participation Act 

By Justin O. Smith
Sent 1/16/2017 7:17 AM

One more day should not pass before the United States Congress votes to immediately halt all funding to the United Nations and end our membership in the U.N., largely comprised of our enemies, which falsely presents itself as an organization dedicated to worldwide freedom, liberty and "social justice" for all. Not only does the U.N. support terrorism, it is anti-American and anti-Israeli, and through U.N. schemes, like Agenda 2030 and "sustainable development", the U.N. promotes tyranny and the subversion of any mechanism for freedom, such as our U.S. Constitution, thus promoting the suppression of the unalienable rights of all mankind.

The U.N. claims that it seeks to create a peaceful world and protect human rights, and yet, many of the world's most troublesome and violent nations and human rights violators -- Russia, China, Indonesia, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and Cuba -- sit on the U.N. Human Rights Council. One should recall that the United States was removed from the U.N. Human Rights High Commission in 2001, in retaliation for the U.S.'s defense of Israel, an all-time high point for U.N. hostility towards the U.S.

U.S. taxpayers' money far too often is placed against American values and interests, whenever the United States gives it to the U.N. This occurs because the U.N. majority of votes is held by the undemocratic 57 member nations of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the 120 member Non-Aligned Movement, chaired by Iran from 2012 to 2015. And so, the U.N.'s World Intellectual Property Organization in Geneva, heavily funded by the U.S., was able to pass dual-use nuclear technology to Iran and North Korea, without batting an eye.

Did this promote peace? And does arming and supplying Hamas terrorists promote peace?

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees has embedded itself with Hamas terrorists, who have formed close ties with the Islamic State over the past two years, and rocket arsenals have been found numerous times in UNRWA's U.S. funded schools. UNRWA-provided construction materials are used in Hamas tunnels, which are staging areas for terrorist attacks that kill innocent Israeli citizens; and, the Leftist Obama administration must tacitly approve of this Palestinian initiative, since it has sent $380 million annually to the UNRWA.

In 2011, did the Durban III Conference in New York and the U.N. legitimization of the Palestinian recognition initiative promote peace or an OIC agenda?

Shortly after Durban III, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton noted: "You just don't read about it, you just don't hear about it in the media. But the pervasiveness of the anti-Zionism and anti-Americanism is there as an undercurrent -- all the time."

And if the December 23rd, 2016 UN Resolution 2334 is not one step too far for the American people, just how far will we go with the U.N.'s madness? Not much further, I suspect, especially once one looks at the U.N. Resolution 16/18, the Small Arms Treaty and Agenda 2030.

With the treason gene dancing nimbly through her mind daily in December 2012, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton colluded with the 57 Islamic nations of the OIC to abrogate the First Amendment. They met in New York City to formulate a strategy that would convince the U.S. Senate to ratify U.N. Resolution 16/18, which criminalizes any criticism of Islam, essentially criminalizing free speech and a bedrock of our U.S. Constitution and our American heritage.

The Small Arms Treaty, adopted in April 2013, is another anti-American U.N. initiative aimed at the Second Amendment. It prohibits exporting conventional weapons, including personal firearms, to nations with poor human rights records. Since U.N. officials regularly fabricate "human rights abuses" against the U.S., this "treaty" would be a strong nuisance, if applied against us. Registration of all firearm imports down to the final purchaser is also demanded, which would be used as the next step towards private firearms confiscation and heavily resisted in America.

The U.N. currently strives to implement Agenda 2030, with its expected $3 to $5 trillion annual price-tag, and its undisguised plan for global socialism and fascism [i.e. corporatism]. Goal Ten calls on U.N. members and every single person worldwide to "reduce inequality within and among countries", which can only be made possible, according to the U.N., "if wealth is shared and income inequality is addressed". Basically, this confiscates Western wealth, shrinks their economies through Big Government policies and "redistributes" [gives] their money to authoritarian/ totalitarian Third World regimes, rather than their impoverished victims, keeping the tyrants in power.

Agenda 2030's premise that the world's current rate of consumption is "unsustainable" is based on fallacies straight out of Malthusian philosophy. The West does not have to reduce their consumption of everything -- meat, cars, electrical appliances, convenience foods, air-conditioning, or expansive and modest housing -- as suggest by U.N. globalists, in order that poor countries can have more and the world can achieve a "sustainable" balance. All that is required is keeping the independent spirit of freedom alive that opens the creative and innovative minds of men, which has always led to a prosperous reality.

Agenda 2030 will be forced on all the citizens of nations willing to use government coercion. Nowhere does it protect individual rights and the unalienable rights granted to all men by our Creator. Its 'Universal Declaration of Human Rights' absolutely denies individuals parental control over their children and the right to self-defense.

Thankfully, U.N. treaties, including the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, signed by any U.S. President do not hold any enforceable weight of law, even through "customary international law", without the U.S. Senate's imprimatur and a two-thirds majority vote, contrary to assertions by globalists, American leftists and Obama's State Department. And even then, the U.S. Constitution cannot be superseded by international law.

Is it any wonder that former U.S. Representative Ron Paul (R-Texas) introduced legislation every year he was in Congress to withdraw our membership in the U.N.?

All Americans, who wish to preserve freedom and liberty for their children's children and beyond, must eradicate the U.N.'s clear and present danger to the sovereignty and survival of the United States. We must fervently urge President Donald Trump and the 115th Congress to totally repeal the United Nations Participation Act of 1945 and expel the U.N. from the United States completely, releasing the $7.7 billion wasted on the U.N.'s validation of tyrants for better uses in America. And from this day 'til the end of time, let America stand only with those nations that are willing to bear any burden and fight the good fight against any foe to assure that future generations live in Freedom and Liberty.

Social Censorship and Racism


John R. Houk
© January 16, 2017

I have had my issues of being placed in Facebook and G+ jail under the (FALSE) accusation of posting inappropriate thoughts that violate social community rules. I am guessing many other Conservatives and Counterjihad writers sharing the truth without profanity have also experienced a social ban here and there. Social Ban = Social Jail.

The social network via Yahoo Groups (ccpga – Restricted Group) posted a link that exposes this jail phenomenon. Sadly Yahoo Groups are not as active as other social groups; nevertheless, the relatively small members at ccpga are quite active. It is there where I found a link to Constitution.com exposing the idiotic censorship at Facebook.

The Facebook poster - Grant Phillips – wrote about the racism involved with teenage Black adults torturing a White disabled mentally challenged young man. Phillips’ thought was pertaining to the MSM not being outraged by “kids” torturing a disabled White man yet contrarily the MSM does not get steamed by the Obama Administration alerting the public to Islamic Terrorism after a terrorist murderer shouts Allahu Akbar. Or calling Black protesters destroying, looting and burning cities are just misunderstood people. Implying Black-Americans need to demonstrate such frustration because of years of oppression. The reality is such actions make Americans displeased and contribute more to racist reactions to show their displeasure.

Anyway, read the Constitution.com article which should go viral to protest Facebook censorship and I dare say a cover-up.

Facebook Bans Yet Another Conservative Viral Post that Only Tells the Truth

By Onan Coca 
January 15, 2017

About a week ago a gentleman named Grant Phillips, who in and of himself is not famous or celebrated for any particular reason, posted an important and thoughtful note to Facebook.

His argument, written in the wake of the vile Chicago hate crime that saw four African-American adults livestream their kidnapping, abuse, and torture of a special needs white man, was well-written and completely factual. Here’s what Phillips had to say:

If you yell “f*ck white people” while torturing a special needs white kid, the city of Chicago won’t call it a hate crime and the superintendent will say it’s “just a bunch of kids.” If you yell “Allahu Akbar” right before blowing yourself up in a public area, POTUS won’t call you an Islamic terrorist. If you burn down cities and destroy property, you’re a misunderstood protester fighting oppression. But if you voted for Trump, you’re a violent racist and white supremacist.




Mr. Phillips’ post quickly went viral reaching over 100,000 people without much pomp or circumstance, a true miracle considering Mr. Phillips lack of fame. The quick expansion of the message must have bothered someone at Facebook, though, because within a few days Facebook had removed the post for violating “community standards.” Apparently, Facebook’s community standards doesn’t appreciate completely honest, factual, and researchable information.

Now, on Facebook, Phillips and his friends, along with many other conservatives, are responding by reposting his message far and wide across the social media network. One of his friends argued, “Facebook is showing an increasing proclivity for punishing Conservative views. Let’s not let them get away with it.”

I agree, let’s make sure that Facebook knows we won’t let them get away with their suppression of conservative views.

Big Eureka Moment. Population Success Story Now Defined as Doom


Elsa Schieder sent an email as an update from the World Truth Summit. Elsa looks at the hypocrisy and misguided thinking of population control and Muslim Refugees in the West. It is something to ponder.

Big Eureka Moment. Population Success Story Now Defined as Doom

By Elsa Schieder
Sent from World Truth Summit
Sent 1/15/17 1:51 PM

I'm writing to you because I've had one of those big eureka moments, and I want to share it with you. What's it about? The utter disconnect between the message on population from a few decades ago and now.

Here's the idea in a nutshell. A few decades ago the message was that we must stop the population explosion or the world is doomed. Now the message is, the population in the West is stable or declining, so we must import millions upon millions, or the West is doomed. No civilization, we are warned, has ever survived population decline.

The verdict. Something rotten is happening.

Here's more detail.

A few decades ago, we heard: The world is in crisis. There's a ticking time bomb. What is it? The Population Explosion!! Soon we won't have enough food and water. We're running out of resources and space!!!

Urgently needed: population control. Fewer children per family. It's irresponsible - it means doom - for people to have so many children.

Look at the world, the message went on. It took humans however long we've been around to reach a population of one billion. And now look at the population zoom upward. Two, three, four, five, six, seven billion! This must be stopped!

Everywhere I read about programs, worldwide, to lower the birth rate. Mobile vasectomy clinics in India. Birth control encouragement in Africa. China instituted a one-child policy - a horror because of the low status of females in China, leading to the murder of millions of baby girls, because the families hoped that the next child would be a boy.

In the West, the message was heard loud and clear.

Look around: many countries have a lower-than-self-renewing population rate - which, supposedly, was the goal. No famine. No epidemic. A slow population decline. Fabulous!!

But that's not what we're told now. Absolutely not.

Instead we hear the total opposite. What's happening is a horror. The West is dying!! No civilization has ever survived a less-than-self-renewing population rate. Think of the Roman Empire. That's what happened. Roman matrons refused to have many children. That caused the death of the Roman Empire.

Somehow the shenanigans of the Roman emperors - lots of murders, etc. - have become irrelevant. Also irrelevant, suddenly: the invading forces Rome had to contend with. In fact, suddenly everything is irrelevant except for those Roman matrons who had only one or two children each.

What can we do to stop the death of the West? Only one thing will do, we're told: we must import masses of people. Millions upon millions.

Are these people who share the culture and/or general ideology? After all, isn't the goal to keep Western civilization going?

No. Shared culture and/or ideology are utterly irrelevant. All that matters are numbers.

Why do we need the numbers? Because there will be millions upon millions of old people needing care. So we will need lots of younger people who can do it.

But is attention given to screening for people who will be ideal care-takers of Western people too old to take care of themselves? Absolutely not. It isn't part of any criteria I've ever heard of.

In fact, as we all know, there isn't even adequate screening against people who may endanger the West through acts of jihad terrorism, let alone screening in favor of people who will be excellent care-takers of aging Western seniors.

But at least, is there lots of screening of incomers in favor of those suited for jobs that Western citizens are not numerous enough to do, or are unwilling to do?

We do have some statistics. The employment rate of immigrants and refugees from different countries and religions varies (when such statistics exist). The lowest employment rate, in country after country where statistics are available, is among Islamics - incomers, and also second and even third generation. In other words, Islamic incomers are likely to be draining the economy rather than adding to it. So they are, on average, making it harder for people in the West rather than being helpful to keep the West functioning. Yet they make up a huge percentage of incomers.


There's more than one eureka in all this.

Eureka one: it makes no sense, when we have succeeded in doing what we were massively encouraged to do - to lower the birth rate in order to lower the population - to condemn us for doing this and to claim our civilization is doomed because of this horror.

At the very worst, if it were to be discovered that population stability or increase were beneficial even at a time of a huge human population, one would think that sending out this message powerfully to citizens would be the appropriate response.

In fact, I don't see that the West - or the world - is doomed if the population goes down. I think it makes sense to encourage smaller numbers of children, and have the population decline that way, rather than through war, famine, epidemics or government programs (like the Communist programs in Russia and China which led to the starvation of millions).

Then, eureka two. The proposed remedy is much more likely to doom the West than population decline. Having millions of incomers whose ideology is against Western values is no way to save the West. Quite the contrary. It endangers the West.

Finally, I come to something which is not a eureka. There are clearly strong forces working against the West - like Islam and the politically correct - or no one would recommend the intake into the West of people adhering to an anti-Western ideology.


Any more thoughts on the eureka re the shift from screams of horror about the population explosion, to screams of horror about population decline? I doubt if anyone in the West had any idea about Islam when there was emphasis on birth control. I also doubt that Islamic forces were behind the emphasis.

A guess. Perhaps, instead of the lowering of the birth rate being hailed as an amazing success, it has been repackaged as doom. Who might be behind this? It could be those who are for Islamic takeover.


Anyway, this is yet another wake-up call. Something has been defined as a fatal problem (population control) when it is actually a success. And something dangerous, potentially fatal (Islamic incoming, whether as immigrants or refugees) has been sold to the West by Islamics and the politically correct as the one and only solution to something which is not a problem.

As I said, eureka.

As always, all the best to all who care and dare,

Elsa

Wake Up Call - Vital Refugee information


Brigitte Gabriel explains the idiocy of using taxpayer funding the billion-dollar industry of bringing Muslim refugees into America under the guidance of the United Nations. The whole mandate is craziness!

AFDI UNDERCOVER US Immigration Office Fake Syrian Passports OK


American immigration officials look the other way for Muslims entering the USA with fake passports! Let’s pray the future President Trump will fire this Obama legacy among the long list of other legacy travesties.

AFDI UNDERCOVER US Immigration Office Fake Syrian Passports OK

Sent 1/10/2017 7:37 PM

A shocking new video from our organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) shows that if you’re a jihad terrorist and want to enter the U.S. to kill infidels, it couldn’t be easier. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), which is a component of the Department of Homeland Security, will welcome you even if you come from a hotbed of jihad terrorism and have a fake passport.

AFDI operative Laura Loomer went to a USCIS office and told an official that she had met a family of illegal immigrants from Syria and wanted to make sure they got immigration services, but were afraid to come in to the USCIS themselves since “they don’t have documents because they came here illegally,” with fake passports.

The USCIS official was unconcerned about the fake passports, explaining, “In the case of asylees and refugees, we waive sometimes the passport, because they are unable to provide that documentation.” He was likewise unconcerned about the possibility that the migrant was falsifying his identity: “We are going to use the name on the passport as AKA, ‘also known as.’”

Astonishing jihadis in the Paris attacks, the Brussels attacks and so many bloody jihad attacks came to the West using fake passports.


EXCLUSIVE: Immigration Official Okays Syrian Immigrants With Fake Passports [VIDEO]

By Alex Pfeiffer, Daily Caller, January 10, 2016

An undercover video exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller Tuesday claims to show an immigration official in New York giving advice on how illegal Syrian immigrants can receive asylum with fake passports.

Laura Loomer, an activist, for Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative visited a United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office in Port Chester, N.Y. on January 6.

Loomer told an employee that she knows a family from Syria that is afraid to come into the office because they are in the nation illegally and she wants to “make sure that they are integrated and they have documentation services.”

“The issue with them is that they have fake passports,” Loomer says in the video. An employee AFDI identified to TheDC as Sergio responded, “We waive sometimes the passports or whatever because they are unable to provide that documentation.”

He asked when the Syrian family arrived, presumably the see if they would be eligible for Temporary Protected Status. An amnesty protecting Syrian immigrants, of illegal or legal status, from deportation. It is eligible to Syrians who have been in the U.S. since Oct. 1, 2016. and the date to register ends in a few weeks. (RELATED: Obama Admin Rushes To Resettle Refugees During Last Days In Office)

“The fake passport is one thing, we are going to use the name that is on the passport as AKA, also known as,” the man identified as Sergio responded. He added, “chances are considering the situation in Syria, they are not going to be sent back.”

He said the family could get a work permit and that Loomer should “file accurately” the paper work and to make sure that she uses their correct names or  “the names they used with these passports, which are not their own names.”

The USCIS employee went on to say, “Was there ever a situation where people came with fraudulent documents and qualified for asylum? Yes, because it’s understood that they cannot always obtain genuine documents. So it’s far from being unique.”

The Daily Caller asked the USCIS if giving asylum to immigrants with fake documents is “far from unique” like the USCIS employee said in the video. A spokesperson responded by saying they do not “publicly discuss individual immigration cases” and giving a link to an information on their refugee and asylum programs. Nearly 85,000 Syrian refugees were resettled in Fiscal Year 2016 and the Obama administration has sped up resettlement in the president’s last days in office.

A USCIS spokesperson also said that the agency cannot confirm the authenticity of the video as they claim it is heavily edited. The USCIS did not confirm nor deny that Sergio is an employee with the agency.

TheDC has previously reported on an internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement memo which states difficulty in preventing fraud in the refugee program as “bad actors” use false biographies and “produce and submit fictitious supporting documentation.” It has also been reported that the Islamic State has a thriving fake passport industry.

About AFDI

The American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI)

The American Freedom Defense Initiative is a new organization launched by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer. Our objective is to go on the offensive when legal, academic, legislative, cultural, sociological, and political actions are taken to dismantle our basic freedoms and values.

AFDI acts against the treason being committed by national, state, and local government officials, the mainstream media, and others in their capitulation to the global jihad and Islamic supremacism, the ever-encroaching and unconstitutional power of the federal government, and the rapidly moving attempts to impose socialism and Marxism upon the American people.

It acts against these evils by:

• Organizing grass root small groups at the local level to fight specific Islamic supremacist initiatives in American cities – e.g., the November 2009 Rally for Rifqa Bary in Columbus, Ohio, which called attention to the dangers apostates from Islam live under, and to the threats to religious freedom that are advancing in the U.S. right now

• Sponsor anti-jihad bus and billboard campaigns to counter CAIR’s pro-Islamic bus and billboard campaigns

• Organizing counter protests to anti-Israel, anti-Zionism demonstrations

• Touring the country on Freedom of Speech in the Age of Jihad tours – bringing the best, clearest voices to national attention

• Building strategic alliances with activist groups in Europe and Israel to engage in open and stealthy counter jihad measures

• Raise awareness of the depredations of Islamic supremacism not just through articles and conferences, but through activist initiatives – e.g., the READ THE REST
