WASHINGTON: America’s Most Prominent Anti-Muslim #Activist and head of ACT is Welcome Meet at the White House – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Mar.21: On Monday night, Brigitte Gabriel, head of ACT for America, tweeted that she was, “In D.C, preparing for my meeting at the White House. What topics would you like me to address?The Atlantic Reported on Tuesday…

Among the replies: “Ban sharia law from US,”, “Officially identify Islam as a political system and not a ‘religion’” and “ask how we can get islam [sic] ed out our schools & universities?”

America’s Most Prominent Anti-Muslim Activist Is Welcome at the White House No one familiar with Gabriel—a Lebanese-born Christian who distorts Lebanese history to incite hatred of Muslims—would find those replies surprising. Her organization, ACT for America, is the largest grassroots purveyor of anti-Muslim bigotry in the United States.

Many conservatives claim they oppose only “radical Islam.” Gabriel doesn’t bother with such euphemisms. “Islam,” she wrote in her 2008 book, They Must Be Stopped, “has created and unleashed an uncontrollable wave of hatred and rage, on the world, and we must brace ourselves for the consequences. Going forward we must realize that the portent behind the #terrorist attacks is the purest form of what the Prophet Mohammed created. It’s not radical Islam. It’s what Islam is at its core.”

In 2007, she declared that “If a Muslim who has—who is—a practicing Muslim who believes the word of the Koran to be the word of Allah, who abides by Islam, who goes to mosque and prays every Friday, who prays five times a day—this practicing Muslim, who believes in the teachings of the Koran, cannot be a loyal citizen to the United States of America.” After Khizr Khan held up a copy of the US Constitution in his speech at last year’s Democratic national convention, Gabriel accused him of lying. “Waving the Constitution,” she declared, “is a misrepresentation when one’s religion teaches that it and any other man-made law, for that matter, are to be removed and superseded by the Quran.”

As these quotes suggest, Gabriel does not consider Islam a religion like Judaism or Christianity but rather a totalitarian political ideology like Nazism or Soviet communism. Thus, she does not believe Muslims deserve the freedoms of worship and association enshrined in the First Amendment. ACT lobbies to ban the Council on American-Islamic Relations—a Muslim civil rights organization that Gabriel calls a front for the Muslim Brotherhood—from addressing state legislatures. In more than a dozen states, ACT has helped introduce legislation to ban the use of Sharia law by state courts. Such bans would prevent a Muslim prisoner from citing Islamic law to justify suing a state prison for not providing her Halal food. They would, argues the ACLU, have the effect of “denying Muslims the same religious accommodations afforded to people of other faiths.”

For ACT, that’s exactly the point. The organization has condemned cities with large Muslim populations for serving halal food in public schools. In 2013, its Houston chapter urged members to “protest” food companies that certify their meat as compliant with Islamic dietary law. ACT tries to dissuade Jews and Christians from conducting interfaith dialogue with Muslims. And in state after state, it has lobbied state legislatures and school boards to purge textbooks of references that create “an inaccurate comparison between Islam, Christianity and Judaism.” Gabriel’s agenda isn’t subtle. She wants to stigmatize, and to some degree criminalize, the practice of Islam.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the Trump administration had not confirmed Gabriel’s meeting, but she later posted photos of herself at the White House on Facebook.

In February, she distributed a photo of herself with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, where she had delivered a “national security briefing.” Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn served on ACT’s board. CIA Director Mike Pompeo last year won the group’s National Security Eagle Award. Trump counterterrorism advisor Sebastian Gorka has spoken before ACT chapters.

Last December, Gabriel wrote that “ACT for America has a direct line to Donald Trump, and has played a fundamental role in shaping his views and suggested policies with respect to radical Islam.” Since Trump launched his campaign for president, the unthinkable has become not only thinkable, but pedestrian. The president and his aides have transgressed prior standards of decency and honesty in so many ways that it’s sometimes hard to remember what those standards even were.

Yet doing so is essential. A woman who leads an organization dedicated to persecuting people because of their faith just boasted about her access to the White House. If confirmed, her invitation will say something terrible about America’s president. If she can visit the White House without being greeted by protests, it will say something terrible about America’s people.

#Brittius says it is what they want. Many have told me, decades ago, to arrest them. I did, and marked the paperwork as such.

When the paperwork went to the judge’s bench, every one of judges, put the paperwork at the very bottom of the pile, several times, because activists want to make a splash with the media.

They remain jailed until arraigned. Some up to two weeks before the paperwork finally surfaced in the pile of cases.

The judge now, should let the activist rant, then slap him with contempt of court and jail him for six month. That usually smartens them up.

BAHRAIN: ‘ HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH CALLS FOR RELEASE OF ACTIVIST WHO RIPPED UP A PICTURE OF THE KING ‘

The New York-based NGO said on Thursday that Khawaja appeared before a Bahraini court to face charges related to two previous incidents, in which she had torn up photographs of the king.

Once in the courtroom on Wednesday, she pulled out and ripped up another photograph of the monarch.

“A Bahraini rights activist jailed for ripping up a photo of King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa in court on October 14, 2014, should be released immediately.

Bahrain should drop all freedom-of-expression related charges against the activist, Zainab al-Khawaja, who is eight months pregnant and has been charged with insulting the king,” the body has said.

“Zainab al-Khawaja has exposed the thin skin of Bahraini authorities, armed again only with a photograph,” Joe Stork, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch, said.

“Where are the voices of the United States and United Kingdom, the supposed global champions of human rights, when it comes to Bahrain, a serial offender when it comes to punishing free speech,” he noted.

HRW calls for Bahrain activist immediate release

Amnesty International has said Khawaja could face up to seven years in prison if convicted. HRW has said she could also face a fine of up to USD 26,500.

She previously spent almost a year in prison on a number of charges, including taking part in illegal protests and insulting police officers, before being released in February.

Her father, prominent activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja, is serving a life sentence after calling for a political reform in Bahrain.

WASHINGTON: ‘ This Day Asteroids and Net Neutrality

#AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – September 10 – Today the committee will hold a hearing examining ways to explore the solar system, focusing on a bill from Reps. Bill Posey (R-Fla.) and Derek Kilmer (D-Wash.) that would create property rights for exploring asteroids.

Also that day, activist groups and Web companies including Mozilla, Etsy, Demand Progress and Engine Advocacy are launching a protest to raise support for strong net neutrality rules. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is in its second round of comments for a proposal that seeks to ban Comcast, Cox and other Internet companies from treating users differently depending on which websites they visit.

The coalition is launching an “Internet Slowdown” to encourage companies to use a “loading” symbol that will not actually slow down their traffic but will represent their fears about a slower Web.

The FCC has received more than 1.2 million comments on its plan, a spokesperson said, the most of any regulatory process.

` Women's Rights Activist's in ` Saudi Arabia ' petition for limits on `Absolute Authority' of Male Guardian's' over Women'

#AceWorldNews says that Women’s Right Activists in Saudi Arabia have petitioned the country’s Shura consultative council callings for limits to be imposed on the “absolute authority” of male guardians over women, a signatory said. Activist Aziza Youssef told AFP they had demanded “measures to protect women’s rights.

” Youseff says many of the proscriptions against women, for example, those which forbid women to work, travel or perform “certain surgeries” without the consent of a male guardian are “not based on religious teaching.”

The petition, signed by 10 female activists, also demands that women be allowed to drive in the ultra-conservative Sunni Muslim kingdom.

#AceWorldNews says (Reuters) – China will begin a long-awaited trial next week of a prominent anti-graft activist campaigning for officials to reveal their wealth, his lawyer said on Friday, on charges he broke the law by organizing demonstrations.
