Iranian Student Group Offers $100,000 Reward For Bombing U.S. Jerusalem Embassy

An Iranian student group has said it will pay $100,000 to anyone who is able to destroy the newly opened U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. The embassy was opened yesterday, accompanied by protests in the Gaza Strip that saw at least 58 Palestinians killed by Israeli army snipers. President Donald Trump’s decision to move the embassy to Jerusalem has drawn international condemnation and dealt a blow to hopes of any Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement.

Now a hard-line Iranian organization—the Iranian Justice Seekers Student Movement—has distributed posters calling for attacks on the embassy. In English, Arabic and Farsi, the fliers say the group “will support anybody who destroys the illegal American embassy in Jerusalem.”

Mosque Fails to Conceal Continued Misogyny

Mosque Fails to Conceal Continued MisogynyAlmost A Year After Dar-Al-Hijra Islamic Center's Imam Endorsed Female Gential Mutilation, the Virginia Mosque Continues To Tolerate Islamist Misogyny, Suppress Criticism, and Sanction Sexist Leadership.

Last May, Shaker Elsayed—an imam at Virginia’s infamous Dar-al-Hijra (DAH) mosque—ignited a massive controversy by endorsing the practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) during a videotaped sermon. Almost a year later, (and despite the mosque’s effort to appear more moderate), DAH continues to tolerate Islamist misogyny, suppress criticism, and sanction sexist leadership.

FGM is a practice that involves “partial or total removal of the female external genitalia causing injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons.” In a controversial sermon, posted online by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Elsayed insisted that the custom is “the honorable thing to do – if needed – for the girls. This is something that a Muslim gynecologist can tell you if you need to or not…[Y]ou see in societies where circumcision of girls is completely prohibited, hypersexuality takes over the entire society, and a woman is not satisfied with one person, or two, or three. This, God forbid, is now happening even in Muslim societies where they prohibit circumcision.”

While Elsayed’s FGM comments caused a firestorm, DAH has long been the center of outside scrutiny. Its notorious former imam, Anwar al-Awlaki, was an Al-Qaeda leader in Yemen and was involved in or linked to more than a dozen terror plots. In 2008 and 2009, authorities found that Awlaki

Jerusalem Soccer Team Renames Itself After President Trump

Jerusalem Soccer TeamMeet Beitar ‘Trump’ Jerusalem.

Did I ever mention I was a fan of Beitar Jerusalem? I might’ve, on one, two, or seven hundred occasions. I can hardly help it: A soccer team, like our family or our religion or how we feel about parsley, is something most of us don’t get to choose. I’ve loved Beitar through years of truly terrible sportsmanship. I’ve loved it when its fans went full mob. And I’ll have to find a way to love it now that it has a new name: Beitar Trump Jerusalem.

“For 70 years has Jerusalem been awaiting international recognition,” read an official message from the team on Sunday, “until President Donald Trump, in a courageous move, recognized Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel. President Trump has shown courage, and true love of the Israeli people and their capital, and these days other countries are following his lead in giving Jerusalem its rightful status. The football club Beitar Jerusalem, one of the most prominent symbols of the city, are happy to honor the President for his love and support with a gesture of our own. The chairmen of the club, the owner Eli Tabib and the executive manager Eli Ohana have decided to add to the club’s title the name of the American President who made history, and from now on will be called Beitar Trump Jerusalem.

We have the greatest love for the President, and it will win! 🇮 💛 🇺🇸.” Some cynics in the Israeli press were quick to criticize the decision, noting that the traditionally conservative team may not like its new name so much if the notoriously inconsistent president changes his mind and makes some future move that is less than supportive of Israel. These critics, however, are missing the point: No matter your politics, the Trump naming is just about the most Beitar thing the team could’ve done.

Consider for a moment the state of soccer (or, for that matter, all professional sports) today,

Anti-Semites, Terror Apologists Hide Behind Civil Rights Rhetoric on Capitol Hill

th Annual National Muslim Advocacy DayTerrorist apologists and their allies wrapped themselves in civil rights rhetoric on Capitol Hill last week for the 4th Annual National Muslim Advocacy Day, sponsored by the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO).

The USCMO acts as an umbrella organization, coordinating activities of major Islamist organizations including the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), among others.

CAIR and MAS have direct connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, which seeks to incorporate religious law into secular society. ICNA has a historical connection with Jamaat-e-Islami, the oldest Islamist group in South Asia, which aims to create an Islamic society and state.

Egyptian Americans for Freedom and Justice (EAFJ), a more openly Muslim Brotherhood support group, piggy-backed on the USCMO event to engage in its own lobbying effort. To read more about that, click here.

“Too many members of Congress insist on closing their eyes when it comes to Islamists, perhaps out of a fear of being called names, perhaps wanting to show goodwill to perceived underdogs,” Middle East Forum (MEF) President Daniel Pipes told the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT). “Whatever the reason, these members are shutting out and discouraging moderate Muslims, precisely when these latter are most needed to offer an alternative to the Islamists' totalitarian vision. Wake up senators, wake up representatives, and do your job.”

MEF issued a report on the eve of the advocacy event highlighting some of the radicals who

Al-Qaeda Declares Jihad Against US in Response to Jerusalem Embassy Move

Al-Qaeda Declares Jihad Against US in Response to Jerusalem Embassy MoveAl-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri called on Muslims to carry out a jihad against the US in response to America’s move of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

In a five-minute video entitled “Tel Aviv is Also a Land of Muslims,” Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri called on Muslims to carry out a jihad against the United States in response to America’s move of its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Al-Zawahiri, an Egyptian surgeon, took over the radical terror organization after founder Osama Bin Laden was shot dead by American forces in 2011.

Al-Zawahiri railed against the Palestinian Authority as the “sellers of Palestine” and against President Donald Trump as “the true face of the modern Crusade” who could only be met with “resistance through the call of Jihad”, according to a transcript by the SITE monitoring agency.

He also said that Bin Laden called the US “the first enemy of the Muslims, and swore that it will not dream of security until it is lived in reality in Palestine, and until all the armies of disbelief leave the land of Muhammad.” 

Alleged Israeli strike reported at Iran-linked military site near Damascus

Damascus claims to knock down two Israeli missiles; attack on alleged arms depot comes hours after IDF reports 'abnormal' activities by Iranian forces, goes on high alert in Golan

Syrian state media reported on Tuesday night that Israel conducted an airstrike south of Damascus, reportedly killing nine pro-Iranian fighters in an area previously identified as the site of a suspected Iranian military base.

Syria’s official SANA news outlet said that the country’s air defenses intercepted two Israeli missiles over the el-Kiswah area, south of Damascus. The report did not specify how many missiles were fired.

“Nine fighters belonging to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps or pro-Iranian Shiite militias have been killed” Rami Abd el-Rahman, director of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told AFP.

Netanyahu tells Putin: Iran wants to carry out another Holocaust

In Moscow, Israeli PM to meet Russian leader, says regional crisis must be solved 'in a prudent and responsible manner'

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday that Iran is seeking to commit another Holocaust by exterminating six million more Jews amid spiraling tensions between Jerusalem and Tehran.

Ahead of talks Wednesday in Moscow, Netanyahu urged that the Middle Eastern regional crisis be resolved in “a responsible manner.”

Netanyahu had earlier attended Russia’s annual Victory Day Parade, which this year marked 73 years since the Red Army defeat of Nazi Germany. The prime minister was one of two foreign leaders who attended the event, during which the Russian army also showcased military equipment used to defend the regime of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad. The other foreign leader present was Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić.

Mike Pompeo Travels To North Korea To Lay Ground For Trump's Summit With Kim Jong Un

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has traveled to North Korea to lay the groundwork for President Donald Trump's summit with Kim Jong Un. 

Mike Pompeo - Kim Jong Un - Trump

While there, Pompeo says he will raise the plight of the three Christian Americans detained by North Korea, but has no commitments for their release. 

Pompeo said he hopes North Korea will “do the right thing” by releasing the three Americans. U.S. officials have told ABC News they expect them to be released before the Trump-Kim meeting.

“We've been asking for the release of these detainees for 17 months. We'll talk about it again. It'd be a great gesture if they'd agree to do so,” Pompeo added, speaking to reporters.

The trip – Pompeo's second to the highly secretive country – is a sign of the Trump administration accelerating the diplomatic opening with North Korea, as it pushes for Kim to relinquish his nuclear missile program. Pompeo left Monday night in secret, stopping in Alaska and Japan, and onward to Pyongyang.

President Donald Trump revealed Pompeo's trip as he announced the U.S. is withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal. 

“Today’s action sends a critical message: The United States no longer makes empty threats. When I make promises, I keep them. In fact, at this very moment, Secretary Pompeo is on his way to North Korea in preparation for my upcoming meeting with Kim Jong Un,” Trump said.

The U.S. does not know exactly who Pompeo will meet, but he said, “We're prepared to meet anyone who can speak on behalf of the North Korean government and give us solid answers so we're prepared,” to pool reporters traveling with him.

On his first trip, he met with Kim himself,

In My Opinion: The Flawed Iranian Deal

” …From now to November you have time to test every candidate for the House and the Senate. Only give your vote in November to the candidates who will stand unequivocally for Israel's safety and security as well as ours here in the USA … “

Johnstem BridgeThe Iranian Deal was flawed before it was ever signed by the signatories. Kerry made it out to be nuclear containment thereby misleading the past administration. As a result, when asked why Iran's sponsorship of terrorism and destabilization of the Middle East the world was not included in the negotiations, President Obama responded with Kerry's line; this is only to prevent Iran from obtaining nukes. In the end, the US did not prevent Iran from its terrorist sponsorship or from obtaining complete nuclear capabilities in just a few years. In addition,Iran out negotiated and won against all other five nations.

It received $150 billion plus another 1.5 billion in cash. Both were unrestricted that it could use to sponsor terrorism, to develop and test long range missiles. Heavy sanctions were removed and allowed it to sell oil and generate an additional 3 billion monthly income that it uses to supplement insurrection where ever it can. Also some of that money is being given as a reward to Hamas, the Palestinians, and Hezbollah when they murder an Israeli man, woman or child.

I don't know what you are going to do with your vote in the elections this fall, but I will NOT be voting for candidates for the House and the Senate, who knowingly chose to support this flawed deal. If your Senator or Congressman voted for it as well, I hope you will decide now not to reward them with your vote this November. Prime Minister Netanyahu twice warned joint sessions of both houses of Congress the dangers of this deal and they turned deaf ears to his warnings.

Finally, Iran Meets Resistance: Four Comments On Trump's Decision

Iranian Flag On Broken Wall And Half Usa United States Of America Flag

Note both the US and its controversial decision to pull out of the Iran deal – and Syria and the repetitive military blows that Iran must absorb in recent months.

Note these two developments and realize that something important had changed: Iran, after a long period of relative calm and easy choices, faces tough opposition from the US and Israel.

Iran has to reconsider the benefit and the possible cost of its actions. On Tuesday – Trump drew a diplomatic red line. The status quo is to be, and the ball is now in Iran’s court.

1. The Middle East suddenly looks different. On Tuesday night, hours after Trump made his announcements, sites near Damascus were bombed again. Another red line was reemphasized: Israel would not permit significant Iranian presence in Syria. The sites bombed were reportedly the sites from which Iran was ready to launch an attack on Israel. So the status quo of Iranian presence in Syria is also challenged.

Trump’s presented Iran with a choice: Resist and bear possibly grim consequences, or renegotiate a deal with which the US is ready to live. Syria’s limited skirmishes present Iran with a choice: Insist and bear possibly grim consequences, or give up on your Syrian dream.

2. In February 2015, when Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel was about to speak about Iran before Congress, I pleaded with him to reconsider his speech. “Speaking up next month before the United States Congress”, I wrote, “would not serve Israel’s interests. Instead of being an opportunity to seriously address the risks of Iran’s nuclear program, such a speech would scuttle the discussion”.

Is now the time to say that he was right and I was wrong? I am not yet sure about that, but I think it is time to consider the possibility that he, indeed, was right. Yes, his speech was enraging to the administration. But at that point in time, Netanyahu correctly assessed that Obama and Kerry had crossed a point of no return concerning the agreement. They were going to sign it no matter what. Yes – Netanyahu also enraged Democratic legislators. It is still a problem for Israel that the Iran deal is perceived in the US (much less so in Israel) as a partisan issue. But at that point in time Netanyahu was ready to pay a political price with the Democratic Party to scuttle a deal he perceive as highly dangerous for Israel.

Did he achieve what he wanted? At the time of the speech he did not. A deal was signed. Israel was ignored. Netanyahu was ridiculed for his speech. Yet a seed was planted. His speech did establish Israel's
