New #DNCChair Tom Perez's Twitter History Shows He's More Concerned About Muslims Than Jobs & Safety


New #DNCChair Tom Perez's twitter history shows that he's more concerned about Muslims than jobs & safety

*****
Related: You simply cannot UNDERSTATE how enormously important this video is. New Zealander, Trevor Loudon is a NATIONAL TREASURE for his monumental efforts to expose & document the communist/Islamic threats within and without the United States of America. 
Enemies Within Here is a rough transcript of a brief snippet from this important video. This link is preset to coincide with the transcript below which begins at 1 hour 24 minutes and 44 seconds:
Look, this is how I see it folks. You can do three things to help save this country.
If the conservatives keep quiet, the communists win.
Demand that your Congressmen support House Resolution 3892 (H.R. 3892 with related S2230), "The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015".
Passing this bill will destroy 60 years of Muslim Brotherhood infiltration overnight.
[snip]
DEMAND that ALL Congressmen and Senators MUST UNDERGO SECURITY BACKGROUND CHECKS before serving on ANY committee.
At least 100 anti-American Congress members and 20 Senators would likely fail such a test. This would have a huge cleansing effect on your government.

[snip]
VOTE! Get out and vote for pro-Constitution candidates at every level of your government.

Yesterday, you posted "NYT in Full Panic Mode over reports Trump may designate MB a terrorist organization" here.

Christian Preachers Who Shouted Slogans About Mohammed And Allah Face Religious Abuse Trial In Britain


From The Daily Mail:
This is the moment police arrested a group of street preachers including a British army major after they shouted ‘Mohammed is a liar’ and ‘Allah is the greatest deceiver’. 
An angry mob of around 150 people surrounded the men in Broadmead, Bristol after they told onlookers that being gay was ‘immoral’ on July 6 last year. 
The three devoted Christians were using microphones and holding up placards before police intervened and arrested the men to cheers from onlookers. 
Major Adrian Clark, 51, and evangelical Christian preachers Michael Overd, 52, from Creech St Michael, near Taunton, and American Michael Stockwell, 50, from Selden, New York, are standing trial at Bristol Magistrates Court. 
They deny using religiously aggravated threatening or abusive words or behaviour. witness told the court that Clark, Overd, and Stockwell were there ‘to pick a fight’. 
Prosecuting, Ian Jackson said the preachers took a ‘tag team’ approach taking it in turns to speak using a microphone on the podium outside Boots. 
He told the court that the incident took place on the first day of the Muslim festival of Eid. 
The men preached about Islam, Buddhism, and even Jehovah’s Witnesses, as well as sex before marriage and sexuality, leaving onlookers shocked. 
Over an hour of footage from a body camera worn by Overd was watched by the court. 
During the video, Stockwell said: ‘Allah is the greatest deceiver – that’s in the Quran.’ 
‘You will die for your sins and be cast into hell’ and ‘Jesus Christ is coming back and taking vengeance.’ 
Overd told the crowd: ‘Mohammed is a liar and a thief, just like you and me.. Buddha isn’t on the cross – he is a liar, just like you and me.’ 
He said sex before marriage was immoral and that it used to be a shameful thing to get divorced. He added that the Bible talks of marriage between a man and a woman, and everything else is abhorrent.

The Smearing of Sebastian Gorka

Sebastian Gorka, author of Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War, is one of Trump’s Deputy Assistants, and an outspoken advocate of the role of Islam in the jihadi movement. In the last two weeks the MSM has led an assault on his character and credentials. A quick look at Gorka’s Wikipedia article, where the war against Gorka is being waged, documents that attacks made mostly by establishment hacks who are being drained from the swamp. Read the Wikipedia article for the standard smear. 

I want to direct your attention to the Times article by Steven Simon and Daniel Benjamin. Both were part of Bill Clinton’s administration and consultant to the Hillary Clinton campaign. They, of course, didn’t get the job. Gorka did.

Benjamin and Simon wrote the classic book, “The Age of Sacred Terror: Radical Islam's War Against America.” According to Wikipedia, it “documents the rise of al Qaeda and religiously motivated terrorism, as well as America's efforts to combat that threat. They review the history of Islamist political thought from ibn Taymiyya in the 13th century, to al-Wahhab (the 18th century founder of Wahabbism) down to bin Laden. The danger, as they see it, is that ‘al Qaeda's belief system cannot be separated neatly from Islamic teachings, because it has -- selectively and perniciously -- built on fundamental Islamic ideas and principles.’”

In the Times article they simultaneously attack Gorka for seeing Islam as part of the problem and taking credit for doing it first. They review how prior to Bush they had talked about the role of the religion and they conclude “The suggestion that Mr. Gorka brings new insight is self-gratifying, grandiose malarkey.”

So what’s their beef with Gorka? In the Wikipedia talk page one editor noted: “If Gorka and the authors both see Islam as a factor in jihadi dynamics, what makes Gorka’s approach Islamophobic in the authors’ mind? … They point to Gorka’s statements that other factors are irrelevant. Early in the article they say he dismisses factors “… like poor governance, repression, poverty and war. ‘This is the famous approach that says it is all so nuanced and complicated,’ Mr. Gorka recently told The Washington Post. ‘This is what I completely jettison.’ … “… an abundance of scholarship on jihadists is that religious doctrine is not their sole or even primary driver. The issues that Mr. Gorka so defiantly ‘jettisons’ actually do play a role.’” 


They have become politically correct because that’s the only way they can stay in the business. After writing a book call “The Age of Sacred Terror” they have retreated to a notion that Islam is not “even a primary driver.” The swamp has consumed even the best writers on the left. 

Trump is draining the swamp. And the swamp is fighting back!

TRUMP! DHS Announces It Will Award Contracts For Border Wall By Mid-April

TRUMP!!! 
Now With Extra Tits!

From FedBizOpps.gov:
The Dept. of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) intends on issuing a solicitation in electronic format on or about March 6, 2017 for the design and build of several prototype wall structures in the vicinity of the United States border with Mexico. The procurement will be conducted in two phases, the first requiring vendors to submit a concept paper of their prototype(s) by March 10, 2017, which will result in the evaluation and down select of offerors by March 20, 2017. The second phase will require the down select of phase 1 offerors to submit proposals in response to the full RFP by March 24, 2017, which will include price. Multiple awards are contemplated by mid-April for this effort. An option for additional miles may be included in each contract award.
From the Ausralian:
Trump has vowed to start building a wall on the Mexican border “soon, way ahead of schedule”. 
Mr Trump told the nation’s largest gathering of conservative activists, the Conservative Political Action Congress, in Washington, that he vowed to always put American citizens first and build a “great, great border wall”. 
“We’re building the wall,” he said. “In fact it’s going to start very soon. Way ahead of schedule. It’s way, way, way ahead of schedule.”

Looks like the Air Force has finally decided what to do with the F-35, F-22, and F-15 fleets

Recently the Air Force ran its Red Flag 17-1 exercise and for the first time the F-35 took part.


The prime articles are The Avionist, and Business Insider.
Secondary articles of interest are here, and here.
The upshot as I read it is this. The F-35 is a stealth strike aircraft, with unparalleled ability to hide while giving a God’s eye view to ALL American and allied pilots in the real time data network  with the F-35, giving overwhelming advantage to the ‘BLUE’ forces.
The F-35 is a sensor and networking platform. In order to yield this advantage it needs tankers (KC-135s, KC-10s, and KC-46s, and F-18's configured as tankers), AEW (the E-3 AWACS and Navy’s E2D Advanced Hawkeye and P-8 Poseidon, and I will guess the Global Hawk and it’s maritime derivative), and strong air superiority backup, the F-22, F-15, and F-18.
Sooner or later the F-35 is going to get into a visual range fight with an enemy 4th or 4++ gen fighter, or even the J-20, 31, or PAKFA-50 and will be in real trouble if alone.
The Air Force, caught short when the Obama admin cancelled the F-22 program at 189 out of 749 aircraft (there are/were 751 dedicated air superiority F-15A’s and B’s at that time) has now announced they are going ahead with a rather novel upgrade for 400+ F-15 C and D’s, so that each can carry SIXTEEN air to air missiles, and be equipped new new much more powerful and versatile phased array radars and the world’s fastest airborne CPU’s.
Thus the arsenal force of F-15’s can, I suppose, linger back and fire their huge load of missiles with data from the invisible F-35’s which are all linking the F-22, AEW, Drone and all F-35 sensor info.
Boeing’s commercial for this F-15 is here. The original idea is here and here as help for the F-22. The upgrade as a program is here.
I’d love to know what the plans are to make safe the AWACs, and tankers without which the entire strategic idea (which sounds pretty complex, which is usually BAD) is an #EPICFAIL.

Global cooperation, dealing with other countries, getting along with other countries is good. It’s very important, but there is no such thing as a global anthem, a global currency, or a global flag. This is the United States of America that I’m representing. 
I’m not representing the globe. I’m representing your country. There’s one allegiance that unites us all, and that is to America. America. It’s the allegiance to America. No matter our background or income or geography, we’re all citizens of this blessed land, and no matter our color or the blood, color of the blood we bleed, it’s the same red blood of great, great patriots. Remember great patriots. We all salute with pride the same American flag, and we all are equal, totally equal in the eyes of almighty God.

WHITE HOUSE V HOSTILE PRESS: It is to be war? Apparently YES







One side>>
Semi Watergate Redux: The White House, embroiled in a scandal in which they know they are guilty uses pressure on the FBI (as Nixon tried to use the CIA to pressure the FBI ’72-74) to falsely tell the public they are not guilty.
The other side>>
Yellow Journalism on Crack, the press acts as a force of hostile political opposition WITH political goals in mind and commits acts to that end:
The FBI tells the White House (Reince Priebus) they know the stories about Russia and Trump election/transition team are inaccurate and/or untrue. The WH Chief of Staff then asks the FBI to release a statement reflecting this and the FBI says, ‘no, we really can’t do that under our policies’
THE PUBLISHED STORY, by NYT and CNN, become the ONE SIDE above, and does not mention the WH comments when they then go on to make their BANNING the TOP STORY.

CNN especially, is attacking the WH for preventing them access because they, in the view of the WH, ARE LIARS. Jake Tapper, btw, then goes on to ape Chuck Todd in calling Trump unAmerican (which, btw fired off Trump’s enemy of the people tweet). I wonder what these people make of Americans who voted for and support the President? Perhaps 300+ electors of us are really fascists after all, since we have felt for YEARS the press was hostile to what WE regard as the heritage values of the Constitution. Imagine what will happen if the Republicans get one more state legislature control and call a convention of the states to directly act on the Constitution.
All this is why this WOULD be a good moment for the FBI to speak up.
They SERVE the public.
This is an easy one.
If the FBI told Reince they were comfortable with the conclusion that there was NO Trump election/transition team wrongdoing with Russia, THEY SHOULD SAY SO. And if that is the case, then any news outlet which ran the OTHER story, needs to PUBLICLY APOLOGIZE and I would keep them out until they did.
If the FBI did NOT go to Reince, then we need to know this about the WH.
Frankly, the idea that we are looking back and forth at this, is PROOF POSITIVE, that while we EXPECT administrations to exaggerate, dissimulate, and LIE (see: GULF OF TONKIN), we also no longer BELIEVE the press. At all. On any subject. Even though we would like to.
So, Mr. Comey, you stuck around for this,
LET”S HAVE IT.
Because otherwise, a WAR to the death between the most hostile forces of a hostile press and the President, will not end happily for ANYONE.
You know the truth, Comey, let’s have it, straight out..no looking for a middle ground. You can go teach criminal justice somewhere, but you OWE US OUT HERE.
Why is this happening?
Steve Bannon:
here’s why it’s going to get worse: Because he’s going to continue to press his agenda. And as economic conditions get better, as more jobs get better, they’re going to continue to fight. If you think they’re going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken. Every day — every day, it is going to be a fight. And that is what I’m proudest about Donald Trump. All the opportunities he had to waver off this; all the people who have come to him and said, “oh, you’ve got to moderate.” Every day in the Oval Office, he tells Reince and I, “I committed this to the American people; I promised this when I ran; and I’m going to deliver on this.”

New York Times in Full Panic Mode Over Reports Trump May Designate Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Organization


From Breitbart:
TEL AVIV – The New York Times this week continued its month-long campaign against designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization amid reports the Trump administration is debating the possibility of issuing an executive order making such a designation. 
Declaring the Brotherhood a terrorist organization would add the U.S. to the growing list of nations to do so, including Muslim countries like Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. The Times’ crusade culminated in the newspaper’s publication on Wednesday of an oped written from Egyptian prison by Gehad el-Haddad, the official spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood. 
The oped was splashed on the cover of Thursday’s international edition of the newspaper. In the piece, Haddad whitewashed the Brotherhood as inspired by an “understanding of Islam that emphasizes the values of social justice, equality and the rule of law.” “We remain committed to our ideals of community development, social justice and nonviolence,” wrote Haddad. 
While many Brotherhood wings indeed reject the use of violence as a strategic tactic, preferring instead a sophisticated gradualist strategy to achieve their aims, Haddad failed to mention that the Brotherhood has spawned terrorist organizations – most notably Hamas – that adhere to its philosophy of a world order based on Islam. 
Al-Qaeda was founded in part on Brotherhood ideology. The Brotherhood was also a central player in the so-called Arab Spring, revolutions punctuated by violence across the Arab world. 
... 
TheTimes’ advocacy for the Brotherhood is particularly noteworthy since it separately posted a full Arabic document from 1991 in which an Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood member set forth a strategy for “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within,” with emphasis on operations inside the U.S.

Maybe it’s me, but IMO, SCOTUS judges should RIGOROUSLY avoid all comment on political issues

Especially if they may show up on the docket.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Says Immigration Makes U.S. Great

Fine, but she makes no distinction, as ANY LEFTIST HAS TO INSIST, between what 99% of Americans want… LEGAL IMMIGRATION, especially of those who want to become one of us, and ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION in which at the very least, one becomes, for instance, a FELON by identity theft in order to illegally work.
Bloomberg:
Ruth Bader Ginsburg didn’t mention President Donald Trump or his immigration policies in a public appearance Thursday. She didn’t need to.
The liberal U.S. Supreme Court justice, who last year called then-candidate Trump a “faker,” hailed the country as one made great by immigration, diversity and free speech, and suggested the U.S. was losing sight of some of its core values.
“We are not as mindful of what makes America great,” she told an audience at George Washington University in Washington.
Ginsburg spoke blocks away from the White House, where Trump has ordered stepped-up deportations of undocumented immigrants and tried to put in place a temporary travel ban for people from seven mostly Muslim nations. Those efforts ultimately could become the focus of Supreme Court fights.
The 83-year-old justice recalled the “America first” movement that tried to keep the U.S. out of World War II in the 1930s and 40s. That was a time when “anyone who wasn’t born and bred in the USA was considered an outcast,” she said.

‘Welcoming All People’

But she characterized that attitude as an anomaly in a national history marked by “welcoming all people,” rather than exclusion.
“I am the beneficiary myself of my father being able to leave the Old World where the conditions were not good to come here and make a living and raise a family,” Ginsburg said. “That is America to me.”
Trump has adopted the slogan “America first” for his approach to trade and international relations.
Instant recusal compulsory on any immigration case reaching SCOTUS.

Peace for Gaza? NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! HAMAS tells Israel to croak (literally)

StrategyPage:
In Gaza Hamas announced that one of its members had died in a tunnel collapse. This was the first such death in 2017. Hamas earlier revealed that 22 of its members (or those employed by them) had died while working on a tunnels in 2016. Most of these tunnel deaths took place in those being built or repaired near the Israeli border. The similar deaths near the Egyptian border are usually not Hamas members. Most tunnel deaths recently have been in deeper and more dangerous tunnels designed to pass under the Israeli security fence or the improved Egyptian security measures. Most of the more than 30 tunnel deaths in 2016 were known to have been Hamas men or Palestinians working for Hamas. Tunnel collapses and accidents have been common in Gaza since 2007, when Hamas backed the construction of more smuggling and “combat” tunnels. Since 2007 over 400 Gazans have died in tunnel accidents. Hamas usually blames such collapses on natural causes (like heavy rains) but Israel believes Israel and Egypt efforts to limit lumber and cement shipments entering Gaza has played a role because many of these recent accidents seem to be the result of poor tunnel construction compared to earlier, sturdier and safer tunnels. As a result of all these accidents, which began to accelerate in late 2015, a growing number of Gazans are refusing to work in the tunnels because there is a widely believed (in Gazan) rumor that the real cause of all these tunnel collapses (including the unreported ones that didn’t kill anyone) are the result of new Israeli anti-tunnel weapons. This sort of thing has been mentioned in the Israeli media, but mainly in terms of new detection sensors not devices that could remotely trigger a tunnel collapse. Hamas denies Israel has any such weapon and Israel won’t discuss classified military matters like new tunnel detection sensors.
It is believed that Hamas spends about 40 percent of its $100 million annual military budget on tunnels. Israel believes Hamas digs about ten kilometers of tunnels a month. Most of these tunnels remain inside Gaza, to protect Hamas forces and military material from Israeli detection and attack. Israel recently offered Hamas a peace deal that included building an international airport, a seaport and industrial zones in Gaza and lifting the blockade if Hamas would renounce its efforts to destroy Israel, cease all military operations against Israel. Hamas turned the offer down.

What? Did they just say Gaza could be SINGAPORE?

Does this mean Gaza could look like this?
Look at the dates of these two articles.
NYT Well, HAMAS was formed in 1987, so maybe they just missed an opportunity to make Gaza into something else?
  • Last week, Hamas received an offer that no sane entity would turn down. The offer did not come from Hamas’s allies in Iran and the Islamic world. The offer, to turn the impoverished Gaza Strip into “the Singapore of the Middle East,” came from Israel.
  • “The Gazans must understand that Israel, which withdrew from the Gaza Strip to the last millimeter, is not the source of their suffering — it is the Hamas leadership, which doesn’t take their needs into consideration… The moment Hamas gives up its tunnels and rockets, we’ll be the first to invest.” — Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman.
  • Hamas does not want a new “Singapore” in the Middle East. Hamas wants Israel to disappear from the face of the earth. The welfare of the Palestinians living under its rule is the last thing on the mind of Hamas. The dispute is not about improving the living conditions of Palestinians, as far as Hamas is concerned. Instead, it is about the very existence of Israel.
  • Hamas deserves credit for one thing: its honesty concerning its intentions to destroy Israel and kill as many Jews as possible. Hamas does not want 40,000 new jobs for the unemployed poor Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. It would rather see these unemployed Palestinians join its ranks and become soldiers in the jihad to replace Israel with an Islamic empire.


Preferable, I suppose…

As long as you can kill Jews

Meanwhile in Israel…
All while, at the opposite end of a nation the size of New Jersey, they take in the Arabs of Syria, wounded by other Arabs, Hezballah, the IRGC, and Russia.

And Gazans voted for this life they have by almost 2-1.

Israeli border guards regularly allowed badly wounded Syrians into Israel and sent them to Israeli hospitals


StrategyPage:
Because of the Syrian civil war many Syrians have come to see Israel as a friend rather than a threat. For example Israel continues to quietly provide medical care for badly hurt Syrians who show up (usually at night) on the Israeli border. Since 2011 nearly 3,000 Syrians have been treated, most of them in the last two years. Israeli border guards regularly allowed badly wounded Syrians in and sent them to Israeli hospitals for medical care. Until mid-2015 Israel would transport badly wounded Syrians to Israeli hospitals after they showed up at border crossings on the Golan Heights. After 2015 treatment was provided at the border, using a temporary hospital set up there. By 2015 over a thousand Syrians had received such treatment. In 2013 Israel set up a military field hospital on the Golan Heights to deal with the growing number of wounded Syrians. Israel lets some of these in for treatment but considers doing this long-term a security risk. So a heavily guarded field hospital right near the Syrian border is now used to treat all the injured. No Syrians will be moved to the interior because of fears that Islamic terror groups are seeking to infiltrate their people into Israel via the hospital care program.
Why do they do this? Looking to sneak organs for rich american joooze? Or maybe every motherloving moron SJP-SJW-PRO PAL-JEW HATING-IDIOT doesn’t matter under Tikkun Olam. They answer to another authority.
Despite energetic efforts by Islamic terrorist groups in Lebanon, Syria, Egypt and the Palestinian territories to destroy it, Israel remains the most peaceful and prosperous nation in the region. The economy continues to grow and economists see GDP increasing four percent in 2017. That is up a bit from 3.8 percent in 2016 and 3.3 percent for 2015. Most of this is due to increased exports. Unemployment remains under five percent. This achievement is increasingly discussed in Arab media, especially in Egypt. In antiquity Egypt was known as a center of scientific study and discovery. That edge disappeared centuries ago and while few Arabs want to discuss openly what has to be done to change it (other than destroying the more advanced West) this edge in productivity and ingenuity is now recognized as a basis for Israeli success. Meanwhile Israel has become a valued, and increasingly recognized openly, Arab ally in the effort to defeat Iranian aggression.
Israeli makes itself useful in many ways. For example Russia and Iran, although now allies, openly disagree over some key items. Russia openly supports Israel’s efforts to defend itself from Iran backed Hezbollah in Lebanon or Iranian missile attacks. Israel apparently launched another attack on Hezbollah early today at targets outside Damascus.
Hmmm, Yakhonts? Israel has warned over and over.

Swedish Democrats: Trump Was Right


From Fox News:
Two leading Swedish politicians have a message for President Trump’s critics: He’s right. 
Per Jimmie Akesson and Mattias Karlsson, both leaders of the Sweden Democrats, penned a Wall Street Journal op-ed on Wednesday supporting Trump’s characterization of a Muslim immigrant-led crime crisis in Sweden. 
“Mr. Trump did not exaggerate Sweden’s current problems,” Akesson and Karlsson wrote. “If anything, he understated them.”

The Centurions


From Tammy Swofford:
In an act of zip-line diplomacy, Egyptian President Abdel-Fatah al-Sissi was the first to send a congratulatory call to president-elect Donald Trump. 
His Majesty King Abdullah II also quickly hooked onto the zip-line and in flying fox fashion paid a visit to Vice President Mike Pence. 
Putting on his cassis, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu provided us a Zip Flyer performance at a White House press conference. Trump, al-Sissi, Abdullah II and Netanyahu. 
The Centurions have made their presence and collaboration known. Brace yourselves for change. The vision of these men will guide future Middle East policy. 
Why these four men? What makes these men special, needful for this era, completely indispensable for the public good?

Newsweek believes America needs a Muslim superheroine

Newsweek just published this laughable piece arguing that the USA needs the Muslim Ms. Marvel as a "hero", claiming she's "best equipped" for the job:
During the first few weeks of the Trump administration, we’ve seen increased pressure on Muslim and immigrant communities in the United States.

In the face of these threats, which Marvel superhero might be best equipped to defend the people, ideals and institutions under attack? Some comic fans and critics are pointing to Kamala Khan, the new Ms. Marvel.
Some very left-wing "fans/critics" are pointing to a character created more as a political statement than a true entertainment vehicle, and when the moonbats who came up with the idea to characterize her as such whitewash the entire Religion of Peace, and call all dissenters liars, is it any wonder the book doesn't hold up?
Khan, the brainchild of comic writer G. Willow Wilson and editor Sana Amanat, is a revamp of the classic Ms. Marvel character (originally named Carol Danvers and created in 1968). First introduced in early 2014, Khan is a Muslim, Pakistani-American teenager who fights crime in Jersey City and occasionally teams up with the Avengers.

Since Donald Trump’s inauguration, fans have created images of Khan tearing up a photo of the president, punching him (evoking a famous 1941 cover of Captain America punching Hitler) and grieving in her room. But the new Ms. Marvel’s significance extends beyond symbolism.
Wow...what kind of "fans" are these exactly? They're actually hurting the character they supposedly root for more than helping. It's not just Trump they're being "tolerant" of. Some way to respect at least half the nation too.
In Kamala Khan, Wilson and Amanat have created a superhero whose patriotism and contributions to Jersey City emerge because of her Muslim heritage, not despite it. She challenges the assumptions many Americans have about Muslims and is a radical departure from how the media tend to depict Muslim-Americans. She shows how Muslim-Americans and immigrants are not forces that threaten communities – as some would argue – but are people who can strengthen and preserve them.
Reading this part made me fall to the floor laughing. By their definition, even Daily KOS and the New York Times, some of the most Islamophilic news sources around, would be depicting Islamists in a negative light. This comes from the European division of Newsweek, but even so, I doubt the writer of this silly propaganda believes a word she's saying. And if she won't quote or acknowledge a single verse in the Koran/Hadith, then I just don't see what her point is. Then, as if more proof were needed the series is already politicized, it's noted that:
...Khan cites her family’s safety and her desire to lead a normal life, while also fearing that “the NSA will wiretap our mosque or something.”
What that's de-facto saying is, it's wrong to keep surveillance on any mosque in real life. And if the character's safety matters, what about that of many other US residents?
The comics paint an accurate portrait of Jersey City. Her brother Aamir is a committed Salafi (a conservative and sometimes controversial branch of Sunni Islam) and member of his university’s Muslim Student Association. Her best friend and occasional love interest, Bruno, works at a corner store and comes from Italian roots. The city’s diversity helps Kamala as she learns to be a more effective superhero. But it also rescues her from being a stand-in for all Muslim-American or Jersey City experiences.
An accurate portrayal? No doubt. They certainly don't paint a respectable one, if they even go so far as to attack Bernie Sanders, confirming the writers don't even like their fellow Democrats. And they're whitewashing Salafism, predictably. Just how is Salafism only sometimes controversial?
As one of 3.3 million Muslim-Americans, Khan flips the script on what Moustafa Bayoumi, author of “This Muslim American Life,” calls a “war on terror culture” that sees Muslim-Americans “not as complex human being[s] but only as purveyor[s] of possible future violence.”

Bayoumi’s book echoes other studies that detail the heightened suspicion and racial profiling Muslim-Americans have faced since 9/11, whether it’s in the workplace or interactions with the police. Each time there’s been a high-profile terrorist attack, these experiences, coupled with hate crimes and speech, intensify. Political rhetoric – like Donald Trump’s proposal to have a Muslim registry or his lie that thousands of Muslims cheered from Jersey City rooftops after the Twin Towers fell – only fans the flames.
It's getting pretty obvious at this point this is more an attack on Trump than a sincere argument. What they're doing here is little more than confusing race and religion/ideology. And look how she refuses to acknowledge Trump did have evidence to back up his accusations there were Muslims celebrating: some NJ police witnessed local Islamists doing so, and here's more information that tells even Dan Rather found proof there were Islamists out there who celebrated the acts of evil on 9-11. The writer goes on to give a description of one of the stories in the Marvel series:
...in one of Ms. Marvel’s most powerful narrative arcs, a planet attacks New York, leading to destruction eerily reminiscent of 9/11. Kamala works to protect Jersey City while realizing that her world has changed – and will change – irrevocably.
Gee, a whole planet? And it's probably not even Ego, the living planet seen in the Fantastic Four back in the early 1980s. But what if is a metaphor for right-wingers, and built on Trutherism? If so, it'll only further compound any concerns the book is more a political rant than anything else.
Kamala Khan is precisely the hero America needs today, but not because of a bat sign in the sky or any single definitive image. She is, above all, committed to the idea that every member of her faith, her generation, and her city has value and that their lives should be respected and protected. She demonstrates that the most heroic action is to face even the most despair-inducing challenges of the world head on while standing up for – and empowering – every vulnerable neighbor, classmate or stranger. She shows us how diverse representation can transform into action and organization that connect whole communities “by something you can’t break.”
Except they did break it. They broke the entertainment value of Marvel, and turned it all into a political rant, much like this article. Say, if they really think a character who adheres to Islam is the "hero" America needs today, how come they don't think the same about say, Joe Mannix, who's Armenian? Or if a Canadian resident counts, how about Alpha Flight's Sasquatch/Walter Langkowski, who's got Polish ancestry? This whole article is nothing more than a selfish bit of twaddle by somebody who's simply not being altruistic, and doesn't consider that comics like these are among the reasons why Trump got elected.
