(NEW CITY YORK) Human Rights Commission Report: Investigating the incident after Amy Cooper, the white woman who was seen on camera calling 911 and falsely accusing Chris Cooper, an African-American man, of threatening her in Central Park, is now facing charges for filing a false report: #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.06: The video, recorded in May, shows Amy Cooper frantically calling police, while alleging Chris Cooper – no relation – was threatening her: Chris Cooper is an avid bird watcher and was in the Central Park Ramble, where dogs must be leashed. He was simply asking Amy to follow the rules and leash her dog:

Oh, when Karens take a walk with their dogs off leash in the famous Bramble in NY’s Central Park, where it is clearly posted on signs that dogs MUST be leashed at all times, and someone like my brother (an avid birder) politely asks her to put her dog on the leash. pic.twitter.com/3YnzuATsDm

He told CBS2 he was was recording the encounter until she do so.

Her reaction sparked public outrage and, as a result, Amy Cooper lost her job and temporarily surrendered her dog: Up until today, she hadn’t faced charges.

After the incident, CBS2 spoke to the man who recorded the video, Chris Cooper: ” I wasn’t going to participate in my own dehumanization and feed that so I just kept recording,” he said. “Ut’s not just about her, she tapped into something that’s pervasive in our society that we all really need to address.”

The Manhattan district attorney announced the charges Monday, also encouraging anyone who has been the target of false reporting to reach out, say “we are strongly committed to holding perpetrators of this conduct accountable.” Amy Cooper is due in court on October 4th. She could face up to a year in jail for the misdemeanor charge.

“Once all the facts are known, Amy Cooper will be found not guilty of the single, misdemeanor charge filed in this case: The rush to judgment by some in the public, in this cancel culture epidemic, will be proven as wrong as cancel culture itself. She lost her job, her home, and her public life. Now some demand her freedom? How many lives are we going to destroy over misunderstood 60-second videos on social media?” said her attorney Robert Barnes.

(ROME, Italy.) JUST IN: Police seize LARGEST haul of 30,000 pounds of amphetamines in an “Investigators believed the drug’s production provided #IslamicState with vital revenue for funding its militant activities” #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.06: Jihadists have used drugs to fund their efforts for years. Years ago, in his study of the Taliban, journalist Ahmed Rashid reported: “Abdul Rashid, the head of the Taliban’s anti-drugs control force in Kandahar, spelt out the nature of his unique job. He is authorized to impose a strict ban on the growing of hashish, ‘because it is consumed by Afghans and Muslims.’ But, Rashid tells me without a hint of sarcasm, ‘Opium is permissible because it is consumed by kafirs [unbelievers] in the West and not by Muslims or Afghans.’ This seems to have been a common view among the Taliban. Another Taliban named Khaled asked, ‘Who cares if heroin is wreaking havoc in the West? It doesn’t matter; they aren’t Muslims.’”

Italy: Police seize 30,000 pounds of amphetamines, “the drug of the jihad,” produced by the Islamic State

And in December 2017, Politico revealed that “in its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States.”

“Italian police seize 14 tonnes of amphetamines allegedly produced by Islamic State,” ABC.net.au, July 2, 2020:

Italian police are claiming to have made the biggest amphetamines bust of all time after seizing 14 tonnes of drugs allegedly produced in Syria by the Islamic State (IS) group.

Investigators on Wednesday said they impounded three container ships that had docked in the southern Italian port of Salerno and found 84 million pills inside machinery and large paper cylinders.

The 14 tonnes of drugs would have raked in about 1 billion euros ($1.6 billion) in street sales had they ultimately made it to consumers, customs police said.

Customs Police Colonel Domenico Napolitano called the discovery the biggest amphetamine seizure ever made.

Colonel Napolitano said on Italian state radio that investigators believed the drug’s production provided IS with vital revenue for its militant activities.

Investigators hypothesise that amphetamine production in Europe has been hampered by the pandemic lockdown, and so drug traffickers may have turned to Syria-based producers to fill the market….

The amphetamines were labelled “captagon”, the street name for a drug whose chemical base was originally fenethylline….

The ‘drug of the Jihad’

Used in the 1960s to treat narcolepsy and depression, Captagon is one of several brand names for fenethylline hydrochloride, a drug compound belonging to a family of amphetamines that can inhibit fear and ward off tiredness.

The imitation captagon is popular in the Middle East, and widespread in war-torn areas such as Syria, where conflict has fuelled demand and created opportunities for producers.

Production was initially concentrated in Lebanon and IS sells it to finance its activities, police said in a statement.

It said captagon was known as the “drug of the Jihad” after being found in militant hideouts, including one used by the Islamists who killed 90 people at the Bataclan theatre in Paris in 2015….

(WASHINGTON) Featured: Not long after 9/11, Adham Amin Hassoun, a Lebanese ‘Palestinian’ computer programmer, was arrested at a Florida traffic stop: The arrest had been a long time coming but he was released even though the legal basis for detaining Hassoun is crystal clear, Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford, an Obama appointee, decided that the convicted conspirator couldn’t possibly be a threat #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.04: Hassoun had entered the United States on a student visa in 1989 and quickly got involved in Islamic terrorism. By the early 90s, the FBI had noticed Hassoun because of his conversations with the Blind Sheikh, the Islamic cleric at the center of the World Trade Center bombing and even larger terror plots targeting New York City landmarks: The Blind Sheikh was the leader of Gamaa Islamiya or the Islamic Group, a Muslim Brotherhood splinter terrorist group responsible for horrifying atrocities like the brutal Luxor Massacre of foreign tourists, including women and children, where  the Islamists had tortured young girls, cut off ears and noses, and left a note praising Islam inside a disemboweled body: Despite, or perhaps, because of their atrocities, the Islamic Group won the support of leftist advocates like Lynne Stewart: the National Lawyers Guild member who was convicted of helping the Blind Sheikh relay guidance to his terror group from prison:

Obama Judge Frees ‘Palestinian’ Al Qaeda Backer Who Recruited Dirty Bomb Terrorist

“The FBI has identified Hassoun as a focal point for communications among persons associated with AGAI and with the international radical fundamentalist community: He has been a major fundraiser for extremist Muslim causes in Chechnya and Bosnia and, since as early as 1994, is believed to have recruited… ‘mujahideen,’ for those conflicts.” the FBI’s counterterrorism section chief had warned……………….According to the FBI report, Hassoun had been a member of Gamaa Islamiya. By the second half of the decade, he had moved on to Al Qaeda acting as a registered agent for the

Benevolence International Foundation: Despite its ‘benevolent’ name, BIF was a front for Al Qaeda and its name originated with an organization run by Bin Laden’s brother-in-law……………….After the Saudis shut down BIF, it headed to Florida, where Hassoun helped out.

Hassoun had become quite fond of Osama bin Laden: ” May Allah protect him,” he told one of his collaborators during a phone conversation after the Al Qaeda leader had threatened to carry out attacks against America in a CNN interview…………..Experts at Hassoun’s trial later noted that the Islamist had called Bin Laden, ” Abu Abdullah”, a name usually used by Al Qaeda members and close supporters…………..” We have captured a known terrorist who was exploring a plan to build and explode a radiological dispersion device, or ‘dirty bomb,’ in the United States,” Attorney General John Ashcroft announced in 2002.

The terrorist in question was Jose Padilla, a convert to Islam, and the man who recruited him  was Hassoun: When a top Bin Laden lieutenant exposed Padilla’s plans, the feds finally took down  Hassoun and the Islamic terror cell with its coded conversations about soccer matches in Somalia, tourism to conflict zones, and checks with memos for Kosovo or Chechnya: Hassoun also owned an illegal handgun and had allegedly given an order to kill a woman………………….Along with Padilla, and other associates, Hassoun was convicted of conspiracy to murder, kidnap and maim persons in a foreign country, as well as conspiring and providing material support to terrorists……………By then, Hassoun had been living for nearly two decades in the United States, despite coming here on a student visa, and had spent much of that time involved with Islamist terror groups.

And the court sentenced him to 15 years in prison: Hassoun’s prison term ended in 2017. The United States had already tried to deport him in 2002. It tried to deport him yet again, but Lebanon wouldn’t take him back because it doesn’t recognize its fellow Arab ‘Palestinians’ as citizens, even though he came from there and his family still lives there. Meanwhile the US has provided over $100 million in aid to Lebanon.

ICE has been stuck with Hassoun for three years because it can’t deport him or release him: ” You assumed a leadership role in a criminal conspiracy to recruit fighters and provide material support to terrorist groups, and because you remain a continuing threat of recruiting, planning, and providing material support for terrorist activity,” an ICE letter to Hassoun noted.

Meanwhile, the Islamist has become a popular case for lefty allies of Islamic terrorists. The media chose to ignore Hassoun’s past while accusing President Trump of trying to permanently detain him: Its current stories about Hassoun portray him as a victim of Trump’s abuse of the Patriot Act while neglecting to mention his praise for Bin Laden, only support for “militants”.

Meanwhile his lawyer claimed that Hassoun just wanted to be with his family, even though his wife and children are living in Lebanon: While the legal basis for detaining Hassoun is crystal clear, Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford, an Obama appointee, decided that the convicted conspirator couldn’t possibly be a threat.

“If he really is the person that is depicted in the FBI director’s letter, the concept that the government just wants to send him to some other country and let him on the loose,” Judge Wolford argued. “It doesn’t hold together.”……..That would be a better argument if her own boss hadn’t freed Taliban leaders and countless other Gitmo detainees, despite the risk they posed, because he wanted to close Gitmo………..Wolford isn’t that stupid. No one involved in the criminal justice system could be.

The FBI and other national security agencies frequently know a lot about an Islamic terrorist’s activities that they can’t bring into court or that would successfully lead to a conviction: Jose Padilla, the terrorist Hassoun recruited, was accused of trying to assemble a dirty bomb, but the evidence could never be brought into court because it was taken from an Al Qaeda senior lieutenant through an interrogation process that isn’t legal in the United States…………………..Jailhouse informants have even suggested that Hassoun may still be up to his old tricks.

But the Obama judge chose to dismiss their statements as hearsay and to order ICE to release the convicted terror supporter by Thursday, while censoring the location where he will live in Florida to protect Hassoun from the American people, insisting that he poses no threat:

To Judge Wolford, Hassoun isn’t a threat to Americans, but Americans are a threat to him: ” The Court also is not persuaded that Petitioner’s criminal convictions show that there is a risk of irreparable harm,” Wolford’s decision sneers. “The underlying conduct that served as the basis for those convictions ended almost twenty years ago.”

To whatever extent it ended, it did so because Hassoun was locked away behind bars. Now that will no longer be the case. The Lebanese immigrant spent much of his life as a free man in this country engaged in the promotion and support of Islamic terrorism. From his ties to the Islamic Group to his role in distributing Jihadist magazines and then his enthusiasm for Al Qaeda, his record has been consistent. Just as consistent as Obama’s record in enabling terrorism.

Wolford’s decision is yet another gift to Islamic terrorists from its biggest political backer.

(NEW YORK) NYPD Report: Commissioner Dermot Shea announced a man was arrested Friday after a toddler was targeted in an attack while out with his babysitter earlier in the week #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.04: Police say Anthony Gonzalez, 35, is charged with felony assault after allegedly attacking the boy around 9:30 a.m. on July 1 at the corner of West 110th Street and Morningside Drive. The NYPD released surveillance video of the suspect running away: The boy’s father told CBS2’s Natalie Duddridge his 22-year-old nanny was pushing his son in a stroller, when a man approached them, then sliced the 2-year-old above his right eye with an unknown object………” My wife is horrified. My son is very nervous. Both under stress. Our nanny took the day off today because she has panic attacks. Not so good,” the boy’s father told Duddridge on July 2. He didn’t want to share his name:

ARRESTED!

The nanny told police no words were exchanged between her and the man, she just heard the toddler cry out when the man got close. She didn’t notice a weapon: ” She told me that some guy leaned over the stroller and cut my son and then she immediately notified 911. Notified my wife. He went to the hospital, he got stitches done,” the father said. “I think it’s a random attack. I think we just got very unlucky.”

The boy is recovering at home and is expected to be OK:

Thanks to the hard work & dedication of @NYPDDetectives, who’re relentless in their investigations, the suspect wanted for this horrific crime against a defenseless child has been charged with felony assault.

Police say Gonzalez has a criminal past, including more than a dozen arrests for robbery, menacing, possession of stolen property, harassment and stalking: He recently served time for a robbery in the transit system and was paroled in November 2019: In 2012, Gonzalez was arrested and convicted for robbing a man on a Brooklyn-bound R-train at Canal Street and Broadway in Manhattan.

He took the victim’s cell phone and punched the man in the face, police said.

(USA) EFF REPORT: Visa applicants to the US are required to disclose personal information including their work, travel, and family histories and as of May:2019 they are required to register their ‘ Social Media Accounts ‘ with government: State Dept Says Approx 14.7-Million People Will be Affected by this New Policy Each Year #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.01: Visa applicants to the United States are required to disclose personal information including their work, travel, and family histories. And as of May 2019, they are required to register their social media accounts with the U.S. government: According to the State Department, approximately 14.7 million people will be affected by this new policy each year:

Special thanks to legal intern Rachel Sommers, who was the lead author of this post.

EFF recently filed an amicus brief in Doc Society v. Pompeo, a case challenging this “Registration Requirement” under the First Amendment. The plaintiffs in the case, two U.S.-based documentary film organizations that regularly collaborate with non-U.S. filmmakers and other international partners, argue that the Registration Requirement violates the expressive and associational rights of both their non-U.S.-based and U.S.-based members and partners. After the government filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, we filed our brief in district court in support of the plaintiffs’ opposition to dismissal:

In our brief, we argue that the Registration Requirement invades privacy and chills free speech and association of both visa applicants and those in their social networks, including U.S. persons, despite the fact that the policy targets only publicly available information: This is amplified by the staggering number of social media users affected and the vast amounts of personal information they publicly share—both intentionally and unintentionally—on their social media accounts.

Social media profiles paint alarmingly detailed pictures of their users’ personal lives. By monitoring applicants’ social media profiles, the government can obtain information that it otherwise would not have access to through the visa application process: For example, visa applicants are not required to disclose their political views. However, applicants might choose to post their beliefs on their social media profiles. Those seeking to conceal such information might still be exposed by comments and tags made by other users. And due to the complex interactions of social media networks, studies have shown that personal information about users such as sexual orientation can reliably be inferred even when the user doesn’t expressly share that information. Although consular officers might be instructed to ignore this information, it is not unreasonable to fear that it might influence their decisions anyway:

Just as other users’ online activity can reveal information about visa applicants, so too can visa applicants’ online activity reveal information about other users, including U.S. persons: For example, if a visa applicant tags another user in a political rant or posts photographs of themselves and the other user at a political rally, government officials might correctly infer that the other user shares the applicant’s political beliefs. In fact, one study demonstrated that it is possible to accurately predict personal information about those who do not use any form of social media based solely on personal information and contact lists shared by those who do. The government’s surveillance of visa applicants’ social media profiles thus facilitates the surveillance of millions—if not billions—more people.

Because social media users have privacy interests in their public social media profiles, government surveillance of digital content risks chilling free speech: If visa applicants know that the government can glean vast amounts of personal information about them from their profiles—or that their anonymous or pseudonymous accounts can be linked to their real-world identities—they will be inclined to engage in self-censorship. Many will likely curtail or alter their behavior online—or even disengage from social media altogether. Importantly, because of the interconnected nature of social media, these chilling effects extend to those in visa applicants’ social networks, including U.S. persons.

Studies confirm these chilling effects. Citizen Lab found that 62 percent of survey respondents would be less likely to “speak or write about certain topics online” if they knew that the government was engaged in online surveillance: A Pew Research Center survey found that 34 percent of its survey respondents who were aware of the online surveillance programs revealed by Edward Snowden had taken at least one step to shield their information from the government, including using social media less often, uninstalling certain apps, and avoiding the use of certain terms in their digital communications.

One might be tempted to argue that concerned applicants can simply set their accounts to private: Some users choose to share their personal information—including their names, locations, photographs, relationships, interests, and opinions—with the public writ large. But others do so unintentionally. Given the difficulties associated with navigating privacy settings within and across platforms and the fact that privacy settings often change without warning, there is good reason to believe that many users publicly share more personal information than they think they do. Moreover, some applicants might fear that setting their accounts to private will negatively impact their applications. Others—especially those using social media anonymously or pseudonymously—might be loath to maximize their privacy settings because they use their platforms with the specific intention of reaching large audiences.

These chilling effects are further strengthened by the broad scope of the Registration Requirement, which allows the government to continue surveilling applicants’ social media profiles once the application process is over: Personal information obtained from those profiles can also be collected and stored in government databases for decades. And that information can be shared with other domestic and foreign governmental entities, as well as current and prospective employers and other third parties. It is no wonder, then, that social media users might severely limit or change the way they use social media.

Secrecy should not be a prerequisite for privacy—and the review and collection by the government of personal information that is clearly outside the scope of the visa application process creates unwarranted chilling effects on both visa applicants and their social media associates, including U.S. persons. We hope that the D.C. district court denies the government’s motion to dismiss the case and ultimately strikes down the Registration Requirement as unconstitutional under the First Amendment…..

(WASHINGTON) Julian #Assange Report: DOJ Files a new superseding indictment against him, broadening the ‘ scope of conspiracy ‘ claimed in the hacking allegations against him RSF calls for all charges to be dropped #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.01: On 24 June, the US Department of Justice filed a new superseding indictment against Assange, broadening the “scope of the conspiracy” claimed in the hacking allegations against him. Assange had previously been indicted on 17 counts under the Espionage Act and one charge under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA); the new superseding indictment did not add new charges, but expands the scope of the CFAA charge and changes the evidential basis of some of the other charges against him:

RSF reiterates call for charges against Julian Assange to be dropped as US issues new superseding indictment: AceNewsDesk_Bot, [Jun 30, 2020 at 21:51] https://rsf.org/en/news/rsf-reiterates-call-charges-against-julian-assange-be-dropped-us-issues-new-superseding-indictment

Such a move is highly unusual at this late stage in an extradition case, which had proceeded on the basis of the 18-count indictment issued by the US Department of Justice in May 2019: Assange’s US extradition hearing began in February 2020 at the Woolwich Crown Court in London; RSF monitored the first week of proceedings and expressed concern regarding the US government’s lack of evidence for its charges against Assange. RSF believes Assange has been targeted for his contributions to public interest reporting and that his prosecution has serious implications for journalism and press freedom internationally. 

“The superseding indictment is the latest in a long series of moves by the US government to manipulate legal loopholes in their targeting of Julian Assange, to undermine his defence, and to divert public attention from the extremely serious press freedom implications of his case. This never-ending persecution simply has to stop. We call again for all charges against Mr Assange to be dropped and for him to be immediately released,” said RSF Director of International Campaigns Rebecca Vincent.

In an administrative hearing at the Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 29 June, Assange’s lawyer Mark Summers expressed surprise over the timing of the superseding indictment, as well as the fact that the defence team had learned about it through the press: The indictment had not yet been sent to Assange’s lawyers or the court, and had not been formally entered into the UK proceedings. 

The defence stated that they wanted the US extradition hearing to continue as planned; the full hearing is scheduled to resume from 7 September, when three weeks of evidence are expected to be heard. Assange’s next callover hearing is scheduled for 27 July:

Assange continues to be held at the high security Belmarsh prison, where he remains at risk of exposure to Covid-19 – a risk exacerbated by his underlying health concerns, adding urgency to the need for his immediate release. He has been unable to participate remotely in administrative court proceedings for several months, reportedly feeling unwell and having been advised by his doctors that it was unsafe for him to access the prison’s video conferencing facilities.

(TEHRAN, Iran.) Refers to U.S as ‘ Great Satan ‘ issues arrest warrant for Trump over killing of Soleimani, asks Interpol for help but they refuse its regulations require it to “reject any request that it judges to be politically motivated.” #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.30: Iran is celebrating the crisis in America.While continuing to refer to the US as the “Great Satan,” it has put out a celebratory song: “It is the end of your reign, America!” The regime is now calling for the arrest of Donald Trump, and is asking for Interpol’s help: Since Iran dubbed Qassem Soleimani a revered martyr, it is accusing Trump of “murder and terrorist acts.”……………..The US’s international allies, including the UK and Germany, also criticised the strike at the time, with Berlin warning that it risked a “dangerous escalation” in the region:

This fear of “escalation” with jihadist bullies is precisely what enables  them. They become more emboldened and stronger in the face of appeasement, as was seen with Iran during the Obama administration: In addition to the Iran deal, the Iranian regime “may have received an additional $33.6 billion in secret cash and gold payments facilitated by the Obama administration between 2014 and 2016, according to testimony provided before Congress by an expert.”

This money allowed Iran to expand not only its regional influence, but to position itself internationally through its proxies and the manipulation of pliant Western states such as Germany: Iran announced in early June that its citizens “who provided information to US and Israeli intelligence services on the whereabouts” of Soleimani would be executed.

Interpol has refused Iran’s request; its regulations require it to “reject any request that it judges to be politically motivated.”

Iran issues arrest warrant for Trump over killing of Soleimani, asks Interpol for help

“Iran has issued an arrest warrant for Trump over the killing of Qassem Soleimani, and asked Interpol to help detain him,” by Adam Bienkov, Business Insider, June 29, 2020:

Iran has issued an arrest warrant for US President Donald Trump for the killing of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, and it’s asked Interpol for help detain him.

Tehran called for an Interpol “red notice” on 36 US political and military figures, including the president, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported Monday.

Iranian prosecutor Qasi Mehr said the figures had been charged with “murder and terrorist acts” for the killing of Soleimani by US drone strike in Baghdad in January.

The strike on Soleimani on January 3 was justified by the US Department of Defence as being “aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans.”

The president has broad powers in matters of military conflict under the US constitution. But some experts have questioned the legality of the strike.

The US’s international allies, including the UK and Germany, also criticised the strike at the time, with Berlin warning that it risked a “dangerous escalation” in the region.

Interpol has yet to respond to Iran, but it has the power to refuse its request.

Red notices are issued to law-enforcement agencies around the world requesting that the person is located and arrested, but they do not compel them to do so….

  • £560m and £200m for repairs and upgrades to schools and FE colleges respectively this year.

Rebuilding projects will be greener, helping meet the government’s net zero target, and will focus on modern construction methods to create highly skilled jobs and boost the construction sector: Investment in schools will be prioritised on the basis of buildings’ condition and further details of the programme, including the approach to eligibility will be confirmed following the Spending Review.

“ The £560m for school repairs and upgrades comes on top of over £1.4bn in school condition funding already committed in 2020-21……………………The £200m for FE colleges this year brings forward plans announced by the Chancellor at Spring Budget this year for £1.5bn of investment over five years to transform the FE college estate…………..This fast tracked activity will further support the government’s wider plans to protect jobs and incomes and drive forward the country’s economic recovery from the pandemic: Later this year government will launch a competition for further funding to ensure that all of England is covered by Institutes of Technology, making sure everyone has the chance to gain higher technical skills and helping unlock growth across the country “

Earlier this month, the Education Secretary announced a £1bn Covid catch-up plan to tackle the impact of lost teaching time: This included new measures to help primary and secondary pupils catch up, including £650m for state schools to lift educational outcomes and a £350m tutoring scheme specifically for the most disadvantaged……………..This one-off grant to support pupils in state education during the 2020/21 academic year recognises that these young people have lost time in education as a result of the pandemic, regardless of their income or background.

In his first months in office, the Prime Minister announced an extra £14.4 billion in funding for schools over three years: That translates to £135 million a week and means that every secondary school will receive at least £5,000 a year for each pupil, and primaries at least £4,000 a year.

(HOLLAND) EFF Report: Law Proposes a Wholesale Jettisoning of Human Rights Considerations in Copyright Enforcement: With passage of last year’s Copyright Directive, the EU demanded that member states pass laws that reduce copyright infringement by internet users while also requiring that they safeguard the fundamental rights of users (such as the right to free expression) and also the limitations to copyright #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.29: These safeguards must include protections for the new EU-wide exemption for commentary and criticism. Meanwhile states are also required to uphold the GDPR, which safeguards users against mass, indiscriminate surveillance, while somehow monitoring everything every user posts to decide whether it infringes copyright:

Serving these goals means that when EU member states turn the Directive into their national laws (the “transposition” process), their governments will have to decide to give more weight to some parts of the Directive, and that courts would have to figure out whether the resulting laws passed constitutional muster while satisfying the requirement of EU members to follow its rules: The initial forays into transposition were catastrophic. First came France’s disastrous proposal, which “balanced” copyright enforcement with Europeans’ fundamental rights to fairness, free expression, and privacy by simply ignoring those public rights.

Now, the Dutch Parliament has landed in the same untenable legislative cul-de-sac as their French counterparts, proposing a Made-in-Holland version of the Copyright Directive that omits:

  • Legally sufficient protections for users unjustly censored due to false accusations of copyright infringement;
  • Legally sufficient protection for users whose work makes use of the mandatory, statutory exemptions for parody and criticism;
  • A ban on “general monitoring”— that is, continuous, mass surveillance;
  • Legally sufficient protection for “legitimate uses” of copyright works.

These are not optional elements of the Copyright Directive. These protections were enshrined in the Directive as part of the bargain meant to balance the fundamental rights of Europeans against the commercial interests of entertainment corporations. The Dutch Parliament’s willingness to pay mere lip-service to these human rights-preserving measures as legislative inconveniences is a grim harbinger of other EU nations’ pending lawmaking, and an indictment of the Dutch Parliament’s commitment to human rights.

EFF was pleased to lead a coalition of libraries, human rights NGOs, and users’ rights organizations in an open letter to the EU Commission asking them to monitor national implementations that respect human rights.

In April, we followed this letter with a note to the EC’s Copyright Stakeholder Dialogue Team, setting out the impossibility of squaring the Copyright Directive with the GDPR’s rules protecting Europeans from “general monitoring,” and calling on them to direct member-states to create test suites that can evaluate whether companies’ responses to their laws live up to their human rights obligations.

Today, we renew these and other demands, and we ask that Dutch Parliamentarians do their job in transposing the Copyright Directive, with the understanding that the provisions that protect Europeans’ rights are not mere ornaments, and any law that fails to uphold those provisions is on a collision course with years of painful, costly litigation.

(WASHINGTON) Far Right Extremism Report: Claims “ far-right- extremism” is by far the most common ideology behind terrorist incidents in the United States, according to a new analysis #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.28: In reality, there is a far greater demand for “right-wing extremism” than there is a supply, in order to justify the favored narrative of the political and media elites. As the British Colonel Richard Kemp said recently: “The authorities know full well that the far-right extremism is not a major threat in the UK.” The same thing is true in the US. Kemp’s explanation for this also applies to the US: “The reason that it is often spoken about and discussed is that is because it’s a way of appeasing the sort of people that do want to damage the UK, like Islamic terrorists and to a lesser extent the hard left. Obviously we have seen far-right people doing some terrible things, but it’s not any way comparable to Islamic jihad or similar to that. There is a pretence put up that it is. The authorities know it isn’t and I am concerned that because they have this narrative in Government far-right extremism is a danger resources are diverted to it when they shouldn’t be.”

New report claims “far-right extremism” is biggest terror threat in the US

The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), which is responsible for this spurious study, in 2018 warned that the US would never defeat jihadis without giving them vast amounts of money and political power: Escalating’ far-right violence in U.S. to pose greatest terrorist threat: experts,” by David Lao, Global News, June 27, 2020:

In a report released last week, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) analyzed 25 years of domestic terrorism incidents, finding that “right-wing attacks and plots account for the majority of all terrorist incidents in the United States since 1994,” outpacing terrorist acts by all other sources such as “far-left networks and individuals inspired by the Islamic State and al-Qaeda.” Furthermore, the report found that occurrences of these right-wing attacks have since grown significantly in the past six years, with far-right extremists perpetrating two-thirds of attacks and plots in 2019, and 90 per cent of all incidents between Jan. 1 and May 8 in 2020.

“One of the most concerning is the 2020 U.S. presidential election, before and after which extremists may resort to violence, depending on the outcome of the election,” the report stated….……..

A new study from London-based Institute for Strategic Dialogue also found over 6,600 right-wing extremist channels, pages and accounts on social media linked to Canadians: Researchers there said that over 11 million users were reached around the globe via social media platforms from Facebook to Twitter, as well as on fringe social media sites like Gab………………….Canada has a well-established online ecosystem of right-wing extremists who are advancing hatred towards minority groups, who are targeting people who are ultimately trying to make Canada a more divided place,” said Jacob Davey, the lead author on the ISD study……………………The findings have since helped identify the part those platforms play in proliferating hate speech and extreme ideologies online, as well as how right-wing extremism in Canada mobilizes or recruits new members.

The U.S. does not yet have a domestic terrorism law place, preventing domestic extremist groups from being designated as terrorist organisations: The debate on implementing such a law has raised criticism from several sides of the political spectrum regarding how it could be enforced, as well as on the implications it might have on the nation’s First Amendment law — the right to free speech.

“All parts of U.S. society have an important role to play in countering terrorism. Politicians need to encourage greater civility and refrain from incendiary language. Social media companies need to continue sustained efforts to fight hatred and terrorism on their platforms,” reads the closing section of the CSIS report: ” But the struggle will only get more difficult as the United States approaches the November 2020 presidential election — and even in its aftermath. Finally, the U.S. population needs to be more alert to disinformation, double-check their sources of information, and curb incendiary language.”

(LONDON) #LATEST: Libyan migrant who went on stabbing spree in Reading was in government deradicalisation program and was released 16-days before his stabbing attacks took place #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.28: Former Labor Justice Minister Maria Eagle stated that Saadallah was “reported as being of interest to the security services as a potential terrorist sympathiser and was released well before the end of his sentence from a prison – a mere 16 days before this murderous rampage took place.

David Barrett, Larisa Brown and Rebecca Camber, Daily Mail, June 23, 2020:UK: Libyan migrant who went on stabbing spree in Reading was in government deradicalization program

Much doesn’t add up about Khairi Saadallah. Here’s what we do know: • His cousin claims that Saadallah converted to Christianity. But of course Christianity doesn’t preach “strike them upon the necks” (Quran 8:12). Other family members, including his mom, say “he had a privileged upbringing in a wealthy suburb of Tripoli, where he attended private school, enjoyed regular holidays and went to summer camps.” It also emerged that Khairi Saadallah’s brother had pictures promoting jihad, and called Brits “dogs” and “children of haram.” This turned up at twitter:

More about Khairi Saadallah:

• He was on “MI5’s radar in 2019 over intelligence that he may have wanted to travel out of the UK to wage jihad abroad.” There must have been a reason to conclude that he “may” have wanted to wage jihad abroad, a reason that is being concealed.

• Khairi Saadallah had boasted to friends in the UK that he had fought as a child soldier to overthrow Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. Yes, “boasted.” This happy, privileged, wealthy Muslim was proud to boast about being a child soldier. It is also known that “Islamic militants” were at war with Muammar Gaddafi.

• Saadallah was also deemed to be “mentally ill.” That’s become a popular fallback to describe many jihadists. By Western standards, anyone going on a stabbing spree is deemed “psychotic.” But only jihadists are motivated by religious doctrine. So far, nothing is being mentioned about doctrine with regard to Khairi Saadallah’s stabbing spree, nor are British authorities likely to discuss this no matter what they uncover.

So then, who really is Khairi Saadallah?

Conclusion: he was raised a happy, privileged, wealthy Muslim. He was known to M15. He MAY have wanted to be a jihadist fighting abroad. He has mental problems and boasted about being a child soldier, but then may have converted to Christianity. He was “of interest to the security services as a potential terrorist sympathiser,” and was part of a government deradicalization program. Now that is schizophrenic…………..

“Police stopped Reading terror suspect A DAY before attack: Khairi Saadallah was found wandering the streets by mental health team after missing a check hours before he ‘killed three people’ as it emerges he was on government’s deradicalisation programme”, by David Barrett, Larisa Brown and Rebecca Camber, Daily Mail, June 23, 2020:

Police intercepted the Reading terror suspect on the street just hours before he allegedly went on the rampage, the Daily Mail can reveal: A specialist mental health team was asked to search for Khairi Saadallah after officials failed to find him during a routine check at his home last Friday………………….Later that evening, just before midnight, he was found on a street in Reading, sources disclosed.

Saadallah is believed to have then been taken home to his council flat in the south of the town – and just hours later is alleged to have stabbed three men to death as they sat in a local park, Forbury Gardens: Several police and psychiatric nurses, known as a ‘street triage’ team run jointly by Thames Valley Police and the NHS, encountered the 25-year-old Libyan after an alert was raised as part of his psychiatric care, sources said.

‘ It came as a former Labour justice minister revealed in the Commons that Saadallah had been released from prison just 16 days before being arrested over the terror attack

Maria Eagle said: ‘The person who has been arrested suspected of these offences has been reported as being of interest to the security services as a potential terrorist sympathiser and was released well before the end of his sentence from a prison – a mere 16 days before this murderous rampage took place.’ …………………..Home Secretary Priti Patel said she was unable to comment given the police investigation, but it will raise further concerns that the authorities missed opportunities to prevent Saturday’s knife attacks.

Police were granted more time to question Saadallah, who was arrested on Saturday:

(LOS ANGELES, Calif.) Mumbai Attacks Report: Since 2009, Pakistani-born Canadian Tahawwur Rana has been under investigation by the FBI for possible links to the jihad bombings #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.25: Meanwhile, he went on living in both the U.S. and Canada: his primary residence was in Chicago, but he spent “Islamic holidays at a suburban Ottawa house backing onto the Kanata Lakes Golf and Country Club.”…………Jihadists and their enablers have for years infiltrated the West. This arrest of Tahawwur Rana, who has up to now for over a decade managed to dodge justice in connection with his role in the Mumbai jihad attacks, is a new reminder of that:

“Ex-businessman facing murder charges in Mumbai terror attack,” by Brian Melley, Associated Press, June 19, 2020: Los Angeles: Muslim businessman arrested, faces murder charges in India in Mumbai jihad attacks

A former Chicago businessman imprisoned for aiding terrorist groups has been arrested in Los Angeles to face murder charges in India for the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks that killed more than 160 people, U.S. prosecutors said Friday: Tahawwur Rana, a Pakistani-born Canadian, has been charged in India with conspiring to plot and carry out the deadly attacks that are sometimes referred to as India’s 9/11.

Rana, 59, was convicted of a terrorist charge connected to the group behind the Mumbai slayings, though U.S. prosecutors failed to prove he directly supported the four-day rampage: Rana was serving a 14-year sentence when he was granted early release from a Los Angeles federal prison last week because of poor health and a bout of coronavirus. But he never got out of prison before being arrested to face extradition to India, prosecutors said.……………….He has been charged with murder and murder conspiracy in India, according to court documents: A request for comment from Rana’s public defender was not immediately returned:

Rana was convicted in Chicago in 2011 of providing material support to the Pakistani terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba, which planned the India attack, and for supporting a never-carried-out plot to attack a Danish newspaper that printed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in 2005: The cartoons angered many Muslims because pictures of the prophet are prohibited in Islam………………..Jurors cleared Rana of a more serious charge of providing support for the attacks in Mumbai, India’s largest city, that killed 166, injured nearly 240 and caused $1.5 billion in damage.

Rana’s lawyer said at trial that he had been duped by his high school buddy: David Coleman Headley, an admitted terrorist who plotted the Mumbai attacks. The defense called Headley, the government’s chief witness who testified to avoid the death penalty, a habitual liar and manipulator………………Rana was accused of allowing Headley to open a branch of his Chicago-based immigration law business in Mumbai as a cover story and travel as a representative of the company in Denmark.

Prosecutors said Rana knew Headley had trained as a terrorist: Headley shared information of the scouting missions he conducted in Mumbai and of the Taj Mahal Palace hotel, where gunmen later slaughtered dozens of people………………Headley, who was born in the U.S. to a Pakistani father and American mother, said his hatred of India dated to his childhood when his school in Pakistan was bombed by Indian military planes during a war between the countries in 1971…..

(ZURICH, Austria.) JUST IN: Man suspected of Terrorism storms into ‘ City Hall ‘ screaming “ Allahu Akbar “ splashes gas around and threatens to burn it down after a politician criticised the Koran #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.25: He was apparently enraged by Norbert Hofer’s criticism of Islam: How can Austrian authorities prevent this sort of thing from happening? They’ve apparently decided that the best way to do that is not to teach the value of the freedom of speech, but to stigmatize and criminalize criticism of Islam:

Man suspected of terrorism storms into Vienna City Hall and shouts “Allahu Akbar” – connection with a politician’s criticism of the Koran suspected,” Medforth, June 24, 2020: Austria: Muslim screaming “Allahu akbar” splashes gas around Vienna City Hall, threatens to burn it down

During today’s municipal council meeting, a man stormed into the Vienna City Hall on Wednesday, shouting “Allahu Akbar” according to eyewitnesses. The security guard called for backup. The fire brigade also had to move in. The man threatened to set fire to everything: As soon as the 32-year-old arrived on his bicycle, he threw it down and stormed into the Vienna City Hall shouting “Allahu-Akbar”.

Thereupon he splashed petrol around him and threatened to set everything on fire. The fire brigade – as well as the police – arrived with a considerable number of men and neutralised the accelerant. At this time a meeting of the Vienna City Council was taking place in the City Hall. Nobody was injured due to the professional and quick action of the security guard, who was provided by the police.

Sharp criticism of the political reaction on the part of the Social Democratic Party (SPÖ) mayoral faction was voiced by state party secretary Michael Stumpf of the Freedom Party (FPÖ). The fact that the socialist Christian Hursky spoke of the fact that the attacker did not carry a lighter with him anyway, would “scandalously downplay” an obviously Islamist-terrorist motivation.Moreover, the latter would instead have referred to Norbert Hofer’s statements on the Koran:

The police have promised the magazine “Wochenblick” to release more information about the suspected attack later today: Currently, the press team of the Vienna police would still be investigating how and why the incident occurred.

(TEL AVIV, Israel.) The Peace to Prosperity plan also holds dangers for Israel. After Oslo, the “secular,” PLO brigades were let into Judea, Samaria and Gaza, purportedly to fight and defeat the “Islamist” Hamas: According to Nabil Shaath, a top PLO official #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.24: 10,000 gunmen, rather than a thousand businessmen, was a fundamental Oslo mistake that the ‘ Peace to Prosperity Plan ‘ corrects: A “Palestinian middle class,” so feared by Yasser Arafat, is exactly what $50 billion means. The century since the demise of the Ottoman Empire saw a middle class slowly emerge in most Arab states, matured by the cultural and economic integration of the world and the Internet. In short, the autonomous individual has arrived, especially as entrepreneur, professional and intellectual. “We hear and we obey,” (Qur’an 24:51) is antithetical to this development. The lay Muslim cannot grasp this, but the Arab leaders wishing to release their Islam-shackled middle classes, do …….

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6 are here. XII The Peace to Prosperity plan also holds dangers for Israel. After Oslo, the “secular,” ………..Jihading the Holocaust: Auschwitz and the Knesset (Part 7)

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6 are here…….XII

The Arab League, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation and their dhimmis, the Vatican and the EU, rejected the Peace to Prosperity plan, but the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Morocco, Egypt and Bahrain gave it their guarded to full support: In the smoke and mirrors of Middle East politics, this means, “Go for it, Netanyahu!” Jordan, the country objecting the loudest, stands to gain the most. The cash-strapped Jordanian government would welcome a demilitarised Palestinian state behind an IDF buffer, plus, of course, the second-largest chunk of $50 billion for the Palestinian 70% of its 19% unemployed population. Far from threatening the peace treaty with Jordan, the Peace to Prosperity plan bolsters it.

Peace agreements with Arab states are clearly of strategic importance to Israel, yet it is a grave error to rely on them as the final guarantor of peace: The enemy of Israel, and of the Jewish people, is not the Arab states, but the religion of Islam. Allah’s terms for peace: Jewish non-existence. The end of any Israeli-Arab peace treaty is never more than a jihadist’s bullet away.

The century of cosy arrangements between corrupt ruling elites, mendacious “scholars,” sycophantic clergy and ignorant Muslim masses might historically be over, but its passing is uneven, even contradictory, across Arab states: For some Arab leaders, Islam may no longer be a tiger worth riding; for others, it is but a matter of adjusting gait. The Saudi elite only mitigates some of its excesses so as to coax help out of those who find them repulsive; they change so they can stay the same. In Egypt, President El-Sisi toppled the Muslim Brotherhood regime of Muhammad Morsi and is demanding the “scholars” of Al-Azhar radically reform Islam. The UAE is the most gung-ho about what it expects from the Peace to Prosperity plan.

While this is not the end of Islam, the stage is set for the ummah’s doctrinal and geopolitical internecine skirmishes to merge into full-blown intra-religious war in which the key Arab states are placing their hopes in the Peace to Prosperity plan to boost their middle classes: The plan acknowledged the middle class’ critical role when it was presented first as an economic plan (in Bahrain), and later as a political plan (in Washington).

The “Palestinians” will finally get the “thousand businessmen and wealthy people,” they missed out on at Oslo: Business needs peace and stability; money is interfaith. Grounded in the political economy of Islam, the ‘Deal of the Century’ marks the beginning of the end of ‘we hear and we obey,’ and the end of the beginning of ‘we think for ourselves.’ It confronts not only the “Palestinians,” but also Islam, not just in Israel, but across the Middle East.

A Palestinian middle class ushers the wider Arab middle classes towards their real target, Israeli investment and know-how: The ‘Deal of the Century’ is elegant in its symmetry: the Arab middle classes, including the Palestinian middle class, are exactly the elements in Arab Muslim society that need a neutered Islam, as does Israel. The “annexation” of parts of Judea and Samaria is a most convenient red herring disingenuously raised by Israel’s detractors themselves.

The Jordanians may have kindled in Israelis the hope that Saudi jihad funding in east Jerusalem overtaking Turkish jihad funding in east Jerusalem will somehow benefit Israel, risking a repeat of trying to play the PLO and Hamas terrorist armies off against each other: The Jordanian initiative suggests their desire to outsource the Palestinian problem to the Saudis in exchange for the prestige of the Temple Mount waqf. The Saudis sharing the waqf offers them the perfect segue to an open relationship with Israel, whose help they need in fending off Iran’s threat to their preeminence in Islam, the Jew-killing religion.

“Iran’s malign activities in the region,” as TV7 Israel News puts it, is all about Islam, as are Saudi overtures towards Israel, yet delusion and diplomatic vanity dictate that a “Rapprochement between Jerusalem and Riyadh,” clears the way for those wary of Arab disapproval to do business with Israel: Certainly, in a world of BDS, this is a point, but it does not annul Saudi malign activities in the region and the world. The Kingdom, after all, hosts the Head Quarters of both the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, one of the key opponents of the Peace to Prosperity plan, and the Muslim World League, the mastermind behind jihading the Holocaust. A bad Iran does not make a good Saudi Arabia any more than a bad Hamas makes a good PA.

The Peace to Prosperity plan offers Israel the perfect opportunity to terminate the waqf altogether: It must not miss this opportunity. Non-Muslims tend to understand waqf only in the limited sense of “trusteeship,” especially as it pertains to the Temple Mount. This is a mistake on several counts.

Firstly, to defer to the waqf is to submit to Shari’a, a victory for Islam right there. This waqf is grounded in a hadith dealing with ’Umar and the property he seized at Khaybar, where the Muslims drove out the Jews. Upon Muhammad’s suggestion, “’Umar gave the land as Sadaqa (in endowment on the condition) that [it] must not be sold, inherited, or given away, (Bulugh Al-Maram 7:786).

Secondly, the Temple Mount is used for jihad, including the storage of weapons, “And he gave its produce as Sadaqa to be devoted …in Allah’s Cause [i.e., jihad],” emphasis added. Thirdly, to recognise the Temple Mount as, “the third holiest site in Islam, the spot where the prophet Mohammed ascended to heaven,” is to agree with Mahmoud Abbas: “The Al-Aqsa is ours… and they [the Jews] have no right to defile it with their filthy feet.” This insult goes much deeper than Jews realise: the feet of Muhammad’s flying horse are purer than the most devout Jew. Blocking Jewish worship at the holiest site in Judaism simply by clinging to the third holiest site in Islam is a double-coup for Muslim supremacism and a powerful inspiration to every jihad killer.

Finally, and most importantly, “waqf” must be seen in the context of their Allah bequeathing the entire planet to Muslims that they must “reconquer” for Islam. In this context, the Temple Mount is the last 150,000 sq m of “Muslim land” that Islam has stopped the Jews from “stealing.” Its significance is psychological, sustaining the will to “drive them out from where they drove you out.” The waqf of the Temple Mount is, quite literally, a springboard for “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

The waqf is an affront to reason, ethics and the memory of the Holocaust, yet Jews keep it alive at the very heart of Judaism. Ending the waqf is the one blow from which the jihad against Israel might never recover, just as the ummah will never recover from the 1924 abolition of its precious caliphate.

Benjamin Netanyahu, and by extension, Donald Trump, already knew from Yasser Arafat’s conduct at Tunis that if they offered the Palestinians $50 billion for economic development, they would reject it: Economic development means: a middle class independent of PA hand-outs; erosion of the recruiting ground for terrorist armies; and waves of free thinkers released into the Palestinian body politic. To outfox the Palestinians as the Peace to Prosperity plan has done, would have required an understanding of the Muslim mind beyond the ability of the technocratic Jared Kushner. Benjamin Netanyahu is one of the few Israeli leaders who understand what it’s all about: a religious war to destroy Israel.

This is not news to the Muslim Members of Knesset, who know that Netanyahu is Islam’s nemesis: The Muslim Arabs’ current hope lies with the Jews so filled with hatred for Netanyahu that they would do anything to remove him as leader, elected or not, unaware that they could not hate Netanyahu more than the Muslims hate them.

That supremacist and wannabe Goebbels, Abduljalil Sajid, seized the opportunity at Auschwitz to tell the world, “Where there is anti-Semitism, Islamophobia is not far away,” (emphasis added) Jews may be anxious to avoid another Holocaust, but their Muslim friends’ concern is for Islam alone, always. Everyone sees Muhammad al-Issa as standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Jews against anti-Semitism, which is not at all how he sees it:

“There are Jews who have stood by the Muslims against Islamophobia: We do not deal with …those who have caused harm to the Muslims,” (emphasis added).

Who are “those who have caused harm to the Muslims?” The Jews! Whether Abduljalil Sajid, Mohammed al-Issa, Mustafa Cerić or Mansour Abbas, the cynicism of the jihad propaganda machine has one aim: turn the world’s revulsion away from anti-Semitism and towards “Islamophobia.” As an instrument of thought-control, “Islamophobia” is the perfect foil for anti-Semitism. With “Islamophobia” in the place of anti-Semitism, Jews can feel virtuous supporting the “Palestinians.”

Jihad terror armies cannot prevail against the IDF: But with Jews paralysed by political correctness and hatred for Netanyahu and enough MKs, the Muslims can hope to disrupt the IDF’s effectiveness enough for knives and Qassam rockets to break the Israeli national spirit. The Peace to Prosperity plan might just have scuppered such schemes, but these are perilous times, for as this essay shows, jihad is everywhere, while most infidels see it nowhere, and often unwittingly assist it.

Peace comes not from treaties, but from one party being able to impose it: This means destroying the enemy’s capacity to wage war. Sometimes, as in Iraq in 1981 and in Syria in 2007, it means destroying a country’s nuclear reactors. Lt. Gen. Relik Shafir, an Israeli Air Force pilot, reflected,…………….Many of us were grandsons or sons of people who had been through the Holocaust, and we had been a part of a mission that was to prevent another Holocaust.”

More important than the destruction of these two reactors, is that the 1981 Operation Opera in Iraq did not deter the Syrians from replacing that reactor with one of their own that Israel, in 2007, had to destroy in Operation Out of the Box, a mere twenty-six year later: At time of writing, thirteen years after Out of the Box, Israel again faces the same prospect of nuclear annihilation. This time Iran is doing exactly as Iraq and Syria before it. After Iran, will it be Pakistan, Turkey, Libya, even Afghanistan or Yemen? The Islamic imperative to annihilate the Jews does not go away just because a few nuclear facilities are bombed, or a few jihad murderers are shot dead. The genocide hadith stands for as long as there is Islam and there are Jews. One of them has to go.

Most Jews believe that Muslims in the Knesset are, by virtue of that fact, peaceful and democratic: This delusion matches a noted paralysis. The formidable Israeli international lawyer and diplomat, Alan Baker, shares this frustration:

“Antisemitism must be treated as sui generis, on its own merit. …To this end …the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs published in 2015 a ‘Draft International Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Antisemitism.’ …Despite having presented this draft convention to all the major Jewish organizations involved in the struggle against antisemitism, no organization was prepared to take it up as a major crusade within the international community.”

As this essay has shown, Jews have let Muslims, history’s quintessential anti-Semites, freely hijack anti-Semitism and its consummation, the Holocaust, for jihad.

(ANKARA, Turkey.) MEMRI Report: A former Jordanian Minister of Education took on Erdogan in a recent interview for the Saudi network Al-Arabiya #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.24: As is well known, Recep Tayyip Erdogan harbors neo-Ottoman fantasies of leading the Muslim world. He made this clear first when he had published in his mouthpiece, the newspaper Yeni Safak, in December 2017, a plan for a pan-Islamic army that would, by pooling the weapons and fighters of many Muslim states, be able to defeat, and destroy, Israel. Instead of the enthusiasm he expected, there was only silence. The Arabs have not forgotten how the Ottomans mistreated them, and certainly have no intention of being enrolled in an army directed by Turks.

A summary, followed by excerpts, are posted at MEMRI.org here: Former Jordanian Minister Attacks Erdogan As Neo-Ottoman

Former Jordanian Minister of Information Saleh Al-Qallab said in a June 8, 2020 interview on Al-Arabiya Network (Saudi Arabia) that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is effectively the supreme guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, and thus the leader of a terrorist organization, since the entire world recognized the Muslim Brotherhood as such: Al-Qallab emphasized the danger posed by the Muslim Brotherhood and he gave the example of the 2006 Hamas coup in Gaza, during which Fatah members were thrown from tall buildings. He questioned why Erdoğan and Turkey are present in Arab countries such as Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, and the eastern Mediterranean Sea and asked whether he is an “Ottoman,” referring to the Ottoman Empire’s control of the Middle East. He added that all of this is a “temporary escape from the dark fate that awaits” Erdoğan. Al-Qallab elaborated that the day will come when Erdoğan will stand trial as a terrorist in Ankara or Istanbul.

Saleh Al-Qallab: ” Erdoğan is currently the supreme guide of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Turks know this. Everybody knows this. He himself declares this. The Muslim Brotherhood is an actual terrorist organization. Most countries in the world – the whole world – consider the Muslim Brotherhood to be a terrorist organization. So he is the leader of a terrorist organization.

Erdogan has been a great supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, while Arab states have distanced themselves, especially the Gulf Arab monarchies that recognize the threat it poses to their rule: Both Saudi Arabia and the UAE have formally designated the Muslim Brotherhood to be a “terrorist organization”and outlawed it. Egypt has outlawed MB members from running for office. Erdogan has not, despite Al-Qallab’s assertion, declared himself to be the MB’s “supreme guide,” but he is certainly one of two Muslim leaders – the other is the Emir of Qatar – who have done the most to support the group.

I am talking from Jordan. I would not feel safe if there was as many as 20 Muslim Brotherhood members among us: We have been through this elsewhere. We’ve seen them also in Palestine, in the West Bank and [other] parts. They are still [ruling] Gaza. You know that they are present in Gaza. They took over Gaza by means of a terrorist coup. They threw Fatah members from the 20th floor. They threw them, there are pictures of this.

Hamas – which is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood – does indeed have a bloody record in Gaza where, in 2007, it turned its fighters on Hamas’s rival Fatah: Hamas massacred the Fatah men, shooting them down in the street, killing them in hospitals, and even throwing members of the group from a 12-story (not 20-story) building.

In no military coup have people been thrown from the 20th story except for the coup of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood: These are the people we are dealing with. Now they are talking about Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. What is he doing in Arab countries? Is he an Ottoman? We have moved on from the days of the Ottomans. We unleashed against them a liberation movement, the center of which was in Turkey itself. I’m talking about Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and his people.

Saleh Al-Qallab cannot contain his resentment, as an Arab, against Erdogan, the Turk with Ottoman pretensions: “What is he doing in Arab countries?” The Arabs revolted long ago against the Ottomans (“unleashed against them a liberation movement” is an understandable exaggeration) and a very different Turk from Erdogan – Mustafa Kemal Ataturk — declared the Ottoman Empire dead, founded the modern Republic of Turkey, and did what he could to de-islamize the country (“I’m talking about Mustafa Kemal Ataturk”). Erdogan, the anti-Ataturk, has been busily undoing those reforms, re-islamizing Turkey by building another 20,000 mosques, vastly expanding the network of Iman Hatip secondary schools which, though not madrasas, put great emphasis on religious training. In 2014, 40,000 students were forced to attend these schools; now more than a million students attend the ever-increasing number of Iman Hatip schools. Erdogan made devout Muslims again welcome in the military, and discharged officers who were deemed too secular. Women no longer were prohibited from wearing hijabs in universities and in government offices. After the failed coup of July 2016, Tens of thousands who were thought to be supporters of Ataturk’s secularisation were discharged from their jobs; these included judges, lawyers, professors, journalists.

What is [Erdoğan] doing in Libya? Why did he try to enter Egypt? Why does he want to go to Tunisia? Why does he want to enter the eastern Mediterranean Sea? This is a temporary escape from the dark fate that awaits him. His problem is in Turkey itself. If he remains in Tripoli in Libya, he will become a failing political refugee and the day will come when he stands trial as a terrorist in Ankara, or even Istanbul:

Erdogan did not “try to enter Egypt.” He did visit it with a massive delegation of more than 200, in 2011, just after the Arab Spring. He went to Tunisia on a brief visit to discuss the situation in Libya, and to see if Tunisia would be willing to enter into the same kind of maritime boundary agreement that Turkey had signed with Libya’s Government of National Accord. But Saleh Al-Qallab is not wrong to see behind Erdogan’s maneuvering an assumption that Turkey deserves to be treated with deep respect, even subservience, by these former Ottoman territories. In Libya’s civil war, Turkey imposed itself, sending Turkish weapons and men to support the GNA, as well as bringing in 5,000 Syrian mercenaries to fight for the GNA. In doing this, Erdogan pitted Turkey not only against the many Libyans who support Haftar, but also against other Arab states, including Egypt and the UAE, that have long given the General their support. Turkey’s weapons, especially its armed drones, have turned the tide, so that General Haftar, once on the verge of taking Tripoli, is now in retreat. And from the looks of things, Erdogan has no plans for removing the Turkish military, but intends to have them remain in Libya for a long time. He’s only increasing the anger many Arabs feel toward Erdogan and what they describe as his “neo-Ottoman” pretensions. But he just can’t take a hint or, from Saleh Al-Qallab, an angry outburst. He can’t see the hole he’s in, and he won’t stop digging. That should be fine with us:
