PLO's Hanan Ashrawi is second to contract Corona illness

First, it was Saeb Erekat who got infected with Covid19. Now, he's joined in his illness by another PLO terror activist, Hanan Ashrawi:
Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) has tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19), the PLO’s Department of Public Diplomacy and Policy announced Monday.

Ashrawi, 74, tested positive for COVID-19, and all her official engagements and scheduled events have been postponed.

Ashrawi is the second senior PLO official to contract the virus.
And it looks like there was a Hamas member who also got it:
Similarly, Hamas leader Saleh al-Arouri was also infected with the virus earlier this month.
It couldn't have happened to more deserving people, that's for sure.

PLO's Saeb Erekat contracts Coronavirus

It couldn't have happened to a more deserving terrorist. As this news states, senior PLO member Erekat is ill with Coronavirus:
Senior Palestinian Liberation Organization official Saeb Erekat has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, the longtime Palestinian diplomat said on Thursday night.

Erekat is currently in isolation in his house in the West Bank city of Jericho, and has canceled all his appointments until he recovers from the virus. He has experienced light coronavirus symptoms, including a fever.
What if it's worse than what's being reported? You can never be sure if taqqiya specialists like these are actually being truthful. This is in contrast to reports about Donald and Melania Trump's state of health following their infection with Corona, from which they've since recovered.
One of the architects of the Oslo peace accords, Erekat has been the PLO’s chief negotiator since 1995. Erekat has led numerous rounds of peace talks with Israel for over two decades and continues to play a central role in Palestinian politics.

Erekat is considered to be at high risk for complications from the virus. He survived both a mild heart attack in 2012 and a 2017 lung transplant after years of suffering from pulmonary fibrosis, a condition which scars the lungs and damages their ability to circulate oxygen.
Erekat also enabled many terrorist attacks in the past quarter century. If he succumbs to Covid19, he'll deserve it. That the Times of Israel chose to gloss over his crimes is shameful.

Molecules science journal run by anti-Israeli chairman

The science journal Molecules delegitemizes Ariel's being on Israeli grounds at the behest of an anti-Israeli movement, making a case for boycotting it:
The international science journal "Molecules" canceled the publication of a study by Dr. Mindy Levine from Ariel University after she refused to erase the word "Israel" in the address of the university, according to Israeli activists.

The study was originally meant to be featured in the journal's January 2021 edition. Levine marked the address in the study as "The Department of Chemical Sciences, Ariel University, Ramat HaGolan 65, Ariel, Israel."

A group of chemists from around the world complained to "Molecules" that Ariel is located in occupied territory and not in Israel. The group is led by Prof. George Smith, winner of the 2018 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, and Prof. Malcolm Levitt, a Fellow of the Royal Society. The group asked the journal to change the address to say "Ariel University, illegal Israeli settlement of Ariel, Occupied Palestinian Territory," according to the Palestinian No Academic Business as Usual with Ariel University initiative.

After the complaint was issued, the editors of "Molecules" asked Levine to remove the word Israel from the address at the head of the study, but Levine refused and the journal cancelled the publication of the study. [...]

“Molecules has put politics over science," said Professor Eugene Kontorovich, Director of International Law at the Jerusalem-based Kohelet Policy Forum, in response to the event. "It requires all authors to provide a mailing address; whatever one thinks of the politics, 'Ariel, Israel' is indeed the correct mailing address, as one can discover by sending a letter. The purpose of a contact address to allow communication with the author has been turned into a geopolitical judgement by chemists unqualified to make it.”

“Papers from authors in other contested areas have been published without any insistence on any 'legally correct' description," he continued. "Now Molecules must revises its policies for several territories, or stick with a Jewish-only double standard."
Most offensive is that the head of the journal's board insulted the lady:
"Scientists are obligated to be precise with facts - this is a basic and self-evident duty for all chemists as in any other science. The publication of the address 'Ariel, Israel' at the head of an article would constitute a blatant and obvious factual distortion to any eye, and would call into question the factual credibility of all the research that followed it," added Keller. "It is a pity that a talented and active researcher, who gained a reputation in the American universities where she lectured and engaged in research, chose to move to a university in occupied territory and thus cast a heavy shadow on the continuation of her scientific work."
I'd say this is reason enough to boycott the journal, seeing as this is an Orwellian "scientist" who only believes selectively in facts. And clearly sees nothing wrong with lecturing the lady over where she should work. All concerned should withdraw cooperation with Molecules, if these are the kind of people they're going to associate with.

Trumps are hopefully doing well following infection by Covid

The POTUS and FLOTUS were recently announced as infected with Coronavirus a few days ago, but if the following news from the hospital where they're being cared for is any indication, they're doing quite well:
The White House released photos on Saturday night that showed President Donald Trump working hard while being confined to Walter Reed Medical Center following his coronavirus diagnosis late this week. [...]

White House physician Sean Conley, D.O., released a statement on the president’s health late on Saturday night, noting that the president has made significant improvements over the last couple of days.

“President Trump continues to do well, having made substantial progress since diagnosis,” Conley wrote in a statement. “This evening he completed his second does of Remdesivir without complication. He remains fever-free and off supplemental oxygen with a saturation level between 96 and 98% all day.”

“He spent most of the afternoon conducting business, and has been up and moving about the medical suite without difficulty,” the statement continued. “While not yet out of the woods, the team remains cautiously optimistic.”

“The plan for tomorrow is to continue observation in between doses of Remdesivir, closely monitoring his clinical status while fully supporting his conduct of presidential duties,” the statement concluded.
Trump is definitely an amazing man, seeing how he's capable of continuing to research paperwork while in hospital undergoing medical exams.

Remembering 9-11 in a year where political correctness took a horrifying turn

Daniel Greenfield at Front Page Magazine wrote about this year's 9-11 Memorial service, at a time when Black Lives Matter and Antifa desecrated memorials dedicated to heroes of the era:
The 19th anniversary of 9/11 has been the nation’s darkest in this dreaded cycle.

The Black Lives Matter riots that attacked the statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Christopher Columbus, and Abraham Lincoln, did not spare 9/11 memorials.

The statue of a police officer was beheaded and toppled in Plymouth, MA at a 9/11 memorial honoring those who had died in the attacks. But the 2,000 pound steel beam from the World Trade Center proved beyond the ability of the vandals to topple.

When Black Lives Matter racists defaced statues and memorials in the Boston Common, including the ‘Glory’ regiment, they didn’t spare the 9/11 memorial in the Public Garden.

A 9/11 memorial honoring five fallen firefighters was defaced and the American flagpole was cut down in Washingtonville, NY,.There was also vandalism at the Decatur, IL memorial site, and a red, white and blue rearing horse 9/11 memorial in Rochester, NY was smeared with red paint.

Beyond the radical attacks on the monuments of September 11 were the attacks on its heroes.

The NYPD has suffered its worst days since 9/11 with over 400 officers injured in the BLM riots. Police and firefighters went from the heroes of a nation to being smeared as soulless monsters.

“I could see no difference between the officer who killed and the police who died, or the firefighters who died,” Ta-Nehisi Coates, an intellectual godfather of Black Lives Matter, wrote, “They were not human to me. Black, white, or whatever, they were the menaces of nature; they were the fire, the comet, the storm, which could — with no justification — shatter my body.”

“Between the World and Me”, the hateful tract in which Coates dehumanized the police officers and firefighters who had died trying to save people of all races and creeds, became a bestseller, was a Pulitzer finalist, and has repeatedly shown up on corporate anti-racism reading lists.

All of this makes commemorating September 11 into an awkward task that Democrats avoid.
Read the rest to see how disturbing things have become. If Joe Biden's elected, it's bound to get worse with all this horrific political correctness running amok. It's absolutely stunning how the country became desensitized to violence, to the point where barbarism as practiced by al Qaeda was legitimized by the leftists. This is why this is one of the saddest moments in the history since the turn of the century.

Trial begins for 14 collaborators in Paris bloodbath

The Jewish Press reports that the trial's beginning in the case of at least 14 people who collaborated with the murderers who struck at Charlie Hebdo and the Hypercacher supermarket in Paris:
The trial of 14 individuals accused of providing logistical support to the brothers Said and Chérif Kouachi who on January 7, 2015, murdered members of the staff of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, and Amedy Coulibaly, who two days later took hostages and killed customers at a kosher supermarket in Paris. The defendants face charges of participating in a terrorist criminal association.

On January 7, 2015, around 11:30 AM, two brothers, Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, forced their way into the offices of the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo in Paris, armed with rifles and other weapons. They killed 12 people and injured 11. The gunmen identified themselves as members of al-Qaeda. Two days later, their accomplice, Amedy Coulibaly, attacked the Hypercacher kosher supermarket where he held 19 hostages and murdered 4, all Jews. The gunman was killed.

[...] On Wednesday, Charlie Hebdo republished the cartoon depicting the Prophet Mohammed in its new weekly edition. The editors suggested they were running the cartoon as evidence. They said the cartoon is “part of History, and one cannot rewrite History, neither can it be erased.”
That's pretty amazing that, a number of years after CH foolishly stopped producing cartoons featuring Mohammed, now they're republishing some of those in focus again. What remains to be seen now, aside from that, is whether the justice officials will take a convincing position on both the tragedies involved, considering all the antisemitism and misogyny lurking around every nook and cranny of their system that so far led to the refusal to prosecute the murderer of Sarah Halimi. Only the death sentence can possibly ensure definite justice in cases like these.

Turkey's giving citizenship to Hamas members

Recep Erdogan continues to demonstrate where his loyalties lie, as his autocracy grants citizenship to Hamas operatives:
An Israeli diplomat on Wednesday confirmed reports that Turkey is granting citizenship to a dozen members of the Hamas terrorist group.

“Some are in the process, some already got (the documents), but we are talking about around a dozen,” Roey Gilad, chargé d’affaires at Israel’s embassy in Turkey, told the Reuters news agency.

Gilad said Israel has evidence of the phenomenon.

“We have already one document that we will present to the government in copy,” he said. “Judging by the last experience we had by presenting a well-based portfolio to the government… and getting no reply, I must say I don’t have high hopes that something will be done this time.”

Gilad asserted that the Hamas members receiving Turkish passports were financing and organizing terror operations.

Turkish President Recep Erdogan met on Saturday with a Hamas delegation that included politburo chief Ismail Haniyeh and the terror group’s No. 2, Saleh al-Arouri — a top military commander who has a $5 million US bounty on his head.
I'd say that's a confirmation of Turkey's anti-American standings coming to the fore. This is grounds for imposing more sanctions upon Turkey, now that they're not only taking steps hostile to Israel, but to the US as well. Under Erdogan, they really have taken a lurch to the dark side.

Something good the Israeli attorney general's doing to try and salvage his negative reputation

Israel's attorney-general, Avichai Mandelblit, earned a bad reputation for his relentless efforts to prosecute the prime minister over petty issues. But here, he's actually willing to file an appeal against an offensive supreme court ruling to block demolition of a murderous terrorist's house:
Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit will file for another hearing to discuss the possibility of demolishing the house of the terrorist who murdered IDF Sgt. Amit Ben Yigal after the Supreme Court forbade the destruction of the terrorist's house.

In a statement on behalf of the attorney general, it was emphasized that the application would be submitted following the request of the political echelon on the issue, and after the attorney general presented to them his professional assessment in relation to the chances and risks involved in the application.

In the court's ruling, the demolition order was revoked. The court clarified that the military commander has the authority to act to seal the room where the perpetrator lived, but not to demolish the entire structure.

The attorney general's statement added that "the request for further hearing will be limited to the determination of the judgment in relation to the need for consideration of the family members living in the terrorist's house, and will not deal with general law regarding the use of demolition tools by terrorists for deterrence purposes."

MK Matan Kahana stated that he "welcomes the decision of the attorney general, who responded to my request and the request of many others and asked for a further hearing in the ruling given regarding the destruction of the house of the terrorist who killed Amit Ben Yigal."

"I will be there at the next hearing. I call on members of the Knesset to join me and attend the court hearing. Together, we will call on the judges to do justice and strengthen the IDF's deterrence," he added.
While this is a positive step Mandelblit's taken, it still doesn't excuse his reprehensible conduct towards Benjamin Netanyahu, and that's why Mandelblit will still have to vacate the position he doesn't deserve.

There's an important point to make that sealing the room where the terrorist himself lived is pathetic, and wouldn't stop him or anybody else that evil from living in the other parts of the house. The supreme court judges doubtlessly know this, and should be ashamed of themselves.

Democrats continue to ignore and obscure slavery of Black Africans in Islamic countries

Bare Naked Islam has an item by a writer who points out how the Democrats, a party founded by slavemongers, keeps on ignoring and virtually obscuring the enslavement of Black Africans by modern Muslim slave owners in north Africa:
The Democratic Party was formed in 1792 as “…the White Man’s Party,” to serve the financial interests of Southern plantation owners. These wealthy overlords established a system which deprived Black slaves of their dignity, their families, and their civil rights. They were property, to be bought and sold, whipped, castrated, and lynched to enforce their brutal subjugation.

Although Jefferson Republicans and others worked for the abolition of slavery, particularly in the new western territories, their efforts were always blocked in Congress by Southern Democrats, who refused to be persuaded by arguments of compassion and common human decency. Southern slave owners claimed to be acting with the approval of God, and their warped version of the Christian faith.

Islam was founded around 670 by Mohammed, and by some strange coincidence, his Allah “god” also sanctioned slavery. He had a lot in common with the Democrats of the Old South! This is what Allah commanded Mohammed in Sura 33:50: “Prophet, it is lawful for you to possess the wives for whom you have paid dowries, and the slave girls you have taken as the spoils of war.” The Koran clearly teaches that rape and slavery are divinely ordained. The Hadiths, which recount the deeds of Mohammed and his sayings, also instructed Muslims that having slaves was approved by their “god…” Mohammed was a prosperous slave owner.

Hadith Sahih Bukhari Vol. 7 #137 recounts that Muslim warriors took female slaves, and sexually abused them. Aisha, the six-year-old bride of Mohammed, whom he raped when she was nine, was reported to have said that Al-Abbas, a Muslim nobleman, had many slaves. (Sahih Bukhari 5-50)

And in our times, Muslims continue to trade in slaves, mostly Blacks from Sub-Saharan Africa. Open Doors, the U.N., and the Global Slavery Index, estimate that over 860,000 Blacks are slaves in Algeria, Libya, Mauretania, and Sudan. Their Arab masters control them with horrific brutality. These Black captives endure forced labor, sexual abuse, and soul-destroying degradation. Saudi Arabia is a prime market for slaves, and slave markets operate openly in many Saudi cities.
Yet all this is obscured by virtually every phony among the left. It's truly sickening that the Democrat party continues to operate in Congress till this day.

PLO despises Congressman Doug Lamborn for rightfully calling to impose sanctions on them

The Jerusalem Post says the Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn's made a call for sanctioning the overlords of the PLO, which has got the terrorist organization incensed:
Palestinians on Sunday condemned Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colorado) for demanding that the US impose personal sanctions on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and other senior PA officials.

In a letter to President Donald Trump, Lamborn wrote that the Palestinian leadership “has continued to pay the terror rewards to terrorists, spending hundreds of millions of dollars every year to these monsters and their families.”

Lamborn was involved in initiating the Taylor Force Act, which was signed into law by Trump in 2018. It conditions US direct aid to the PA on the abolition of the PA’s payment of cash rewards to terrorists and their families.

“Since the passing of the Taylor Force Act, and a similar law in Israel’s Knesset passed by my friends MKs Elazar Stern and Avi Dichter in July 2018, the Palestinian leadership has spent over NIS 1.2 billion, or $350 million, continuing to reward terror,” Lamborn wrote. “Since the Palestinian leadership have publicly attacked the passage of the Taylor Force Act, rejected its terms, and continue rewarding terrorists and their families, the appropriate next step in the US war on terror is to personally sanction those PA/PLO officials involved in this incentivizing of terror, as defined by the law. While there are many senior Palestinian officials involved in the ‘pay for slay’ program, the institution and the person most responsible are the PA/PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs and its Director Qadri Abu Bakr.”
I think the PLO's remorseless reaction is exactly why the sanctions against Abbas should be imposed immediately. Mainly because he himself is such a monster.

Why would it be a surprise if Facebook continues to ignore Islamic anti-semitism?

Israel National News tells of a Knesset panel on the subject of Islamic/Arabic anti-semitism rampant on the Facebook platform:
Israel’s Diaspora Affairs Ministry on Monday presented data to the Knesset’s Immigration, Absorption, and Diaspora Affairs Committee on the proliferation of anti-Semitic rhetoric and conspiracy theories on social media networks like Facebook, TikTok, and Twitter.

The data was based on studies conducted by the ministry’s center for monitoring anti-Semitism and incitement on social media networks.

During the committee’s hearing Monday morning, the Diaspora Affairs Ministry provided examples of anti-Semitic comments on social media, in particular the rampant anti-Semitism found in many Arabic-language groups on Facebook.

In these Facebook groups, the ministry found numerous cases of Holocaust denial, blaming Jews for the Holocaust, classic anti-Semitism and newer forms of anti-Semitism.

Yogev Karsenti, the head of the Diaspora Affairs Ministry’s efforts to combat anti-Semitism, said that social media networks’ policies have made curtailing the spread of anti-Semitism online difficult.
True, but it's hardly a surprise at this point. Zuckerberg's remained uncooperative with those wishing to combat the issue, and hasn't even proved convincing in dealing with content inciting violence, which is when antisemitism really becomes a problem. That's why there's just no point in using their systems at a time when alternatives are turning up, and no point in advertising on Facebook either.

More cases of Corona infections in PLO dominated territories

The illnesses from Corona in the PLO areas continues apace:
The Palestinian Authority (PA) on Saturday said that 382 new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in its territories, raising its total number of registered cases to 12,809, the Xinhua news agency reports.

The PA “ministry of health” said four citizens died of the virus, bringing the total deaths since March 5 to 77.

The ministry noted that recovered cases reached 3,741, leaving 8,991 active cases under medical observation.

Overall, 15 patients are currently in intensive care units, including three who are connected to respirators. [...]

After the easing of a previous coronavirus lockdown in late May, PA “health minister” Mai al-Kaila said the PA had entered a second wave of infections "more dangerous than the first".
It's the PLO's own fault, of course. That's what happens when they embrace evils like antisemtism and jihadism.

Holland paid terrorists who murdered Israeli teen girl

The Jerusalem Post says it's been discovered that the Dutch government gave money to terrorists behind the murder of an Israeli teenage girl:
The Netherlands paid part of the salaries of two terrorists involved in killing 17-year-old Rina Shnerb last year, Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok and Development Minister Sigrid Kaag admitted to parliament on Tuesday.

The killers are members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a designated terrorist group in the EU, and employees of the Palestinian Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC), to which the Dutch representative in Ramallah pledged nearly $20 million in 2013-2021.

Their salaries were paid in part by Dutch funds covering UAWC overhead costs, though they were not directly involved in the land and water management program sponsored by the Netherlands. They also received accreditation, identifying themselves as “employees of a partner organization of the Dutch representation,” in Ramallah a letter from the ministers said.

The Netherlands is suspending its donations to UAWC indefinitely, pending an investigation.
The Dutch government owes a serious apology for the harm they caused. It's a grave example of a European government enabling terrorism, and what they did has also enabled terrorists to act within their own countries. Funding to terrorists has to cease.

Mirielle Knoll's 2 murderers are going to trial

Two Islamofascists in France who murdered a Holocaust survivor are now going on trial:
French judges on Monday ordered two men to stand trial for the brutal 2018 killing of an elderly Jewish woman that prompted an outcry over a rise in anti-Semitic acts.

Mireille Knoll, 85 and suffering from Parkinson's disease, was stabbed in her Paris apartment by attackers who later set her body on fire, apparently to hide evidence of their crime.

She had escaped the mass deportation of Jews from France during World War II by fleeing abroad.

A longtime neighbor, Yacine Mihoub, and associate Alexandre Carrimbacus were later arrested on charges of murder and aggravated robbery, though prosecutors did not initially characterize the killing as anti-Semitic.

Under questioning Carrimbacus accused Mihoub of yelling "Allahu Akbar (God is greatest)" while stabbing Knoll and of justifying the attack by saying "Jews have money."

The revelations outraged France's Jewish community, which called it the latest in a series of increasingly brazen anti-Semitic acts, including violence and desecrations of Jewish cemeteries.
The mother of one of them is also going on trial for trying to destroy evidence. And it's obscene how these monsters are consistently taught to be greedy for money, and view Jews as in possession of everything. Sick.

It still remains to be seen if Sarah Halimi will receive any justice. That's something that'll have to be dealt with next.

Casualties from Corona in France very high for immigrant populations from north Africa

The UK Guardian has some eyebrow raising news about what the rates of illness and deaths from Covid19 were like for immigrants from the African continent. Blacks reportedly suffered most badly, but, though the article doesn't clearly say so, it sounds like Islamists also took a serious toll:
The research findings were particularly alarming for the Paris region, especially in the densely populated and underprivileged northern reaches of the French capital. Compared to March-April of 2019, Paris-region deaths during the same two months this year shot up by 134% among north African immigrants and by 219% for people born elsewhere in Africa.

Skewed death rates were even more pronounced in Seine-Saint-Denis, the northern outskirts of Paris long troubled by poverty and overcrowding. There, deaths increased by 95% among the French-born, but by 191% among people born in north Africa and by 368% among those from sub-Saharan Africa.
There are reasons we can probably guess why it was so bad there. The Islamists apparently thought "allah" would defend their health, and since they pour out so much violence in that district, what with riots and intifada and all that, so how could authorities ensure that proper medical attendance could be provided to them? They turned their neighborhood into a sharia-run no-go zone, that's what they get.

Who knows? This whole pandemic might have a silver lining in that it brought about punishment for those who would espouse a violent religion and force it upon innocent people.

The BBC gushes over the Muslim Ms. Marvel's foray into videogames

The BBC's written one of their awful fluff-coated entertainment reports on how Islam is portrayed in videogames as much as comics, and this one is about the new Avengers game where the propaganda vehicle in the form of Kamala Khan is forced into the character roster:
Marvel's Avengers are assembling once again, not on the big screen, but for a blockbuster video game.

It features many of the superheroes you might expect, including Iron Man, Hulk and Captain America. But they are joined by a new addition: Kamala Khan.

The Muslim-American teenager of Pakistani heritage, who has shape-shifting abilities, is the latest character to adopt the Ms Marvel moniker
.

When the game's publisher Square Enix announced that Marvel Avengers would include Kamala Khan as one of its main playable characters and make her central to the plot, it garnered praise from both fans and industry insiders.

[...] Kamala Khan was co-created by Marvel editor and director Sana Amanat in 2014.

A Muslim-American herself, Sana Amanat wanted to create a character young girls of similar background could identify with and look up to.

"I think it's absolutely insane that Kamala is in one of the biggest Marvel games that we've done," she said during the promotion of the game.

"The fact that she's the entry point character in this game makes so much sense. People from all backgrounds can relate to her."
As expected, Amanat shoves and shoves that propaganda narrative full force, milking it for all it's [not] worth. No serious questions asked why this particular character has to be put front and center of such a video game either. Yet there are a few elements in the comic, more on which anon, that actually run contrary to the censorious mindset of the Religion of Peace, despite what she's saying, one of the reason why not everyone can "relate" to her politically influenced creation.

This propaganda piece also cites other sugarcoated portrayals of Islam in more video games of recent:
Muslim characters in video games have appeared in significant roles in recent years, so this is far from the first time you can play as a Muslim character.

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India, a spinoff of the top-selling franchise, had us playing as Arbaaz Mir, a Kashmiri assassin.

Fighting game franchise Tekken 7 recently introduced a character from Saudi Arabia called Shaheen as the latest entry to its roster.

And Street Fighter V saw the inclusion of Rashid, another character of middle-eastern heritage.
And any characters who're portrayed as Islamists with no questions asked whether or not it's a healthy belief system aren't exactly doing anybody favors. However, this is indicative of the path the entertainment world's been taking ever since 9-11, kowtowing to the enemy beliefs in contrast to the WW2 era. Under today's massively PC environment, it is not possible to make a video game like Operation Thunderbolt, which was inspired in its time by the Israeli army's raid on Entebbe in 1976. That's how far we've fallen.
However, some character designs for Muslims can be stereotypical and not very reflective of your average young Muslim, according to Sitara Shefta, head of studio at No Brakes Games.

Sitara believes Ms Marvel is far more representative of what young Muslims are actually like, and says the Kamala Khan character reminds her of her own niece.

She says the significance of Kamala Khan's inclusion in the game is a huge step for better representation in gaming.

"It's very important, why shouldn't Pakistanis and Muslims have characters and stories that inspire them?" she asks.

"They are usually depicted as terrorists or the villains we fight against in the games.

"Now we have an empowering Pakistani Muslim character, and a role model for kids from this community to be inspired by."
The irony is, last time I looked, it appeared the comics were depicting scenes and situations with Khan that would offend hardcore Islamists, like depicting her making love to a boyfriend, and associating with Jewish characters, among other things that are considered haram (taboo) under the Religion of Peace. So the above is a rather laughable argument, as "inspiration" isn't exactly what they're looking for. Only politically correct depictions adhering to their demand of how Islam should be portrayed in fictional entertainment. As mentioned, ever since 9-11, moral panic's led to a significant decrease in games where jihadists could be depicted as the adversaries.
Scott Amos, studio head at the game's developer Crystal Dynamics, said they had been overwhelmed with the response to Kamala Khan's inclusion.

"One post that really caught us was about how this current, long-time gamer said how emotional this made him - and how important it is to have a leading hero in this game now, so that generations of new gamers can see and play as someone like them in a game that is filled with these iconic giants like Thor and Iron Man and Black Widow," he told the BBC Asian Network.
It sounds like they're fudging up what really happened - complaints about the poor design for Black Widow, and how biased the whole project was from a political perspective, putting Khan into the foremost position. No surprise, really. I'd thought before Crystal Dynamics was the kind of studio that was "going woke", and this confirms something. And explains why I'd rather not play any video game based on Marvel today, because of how far they've fallen in terms of pushing propaganda instead of entertainment value.

Islamofascists exploit BLM, despite Islam's own anti-black history

Israel National News wrote an op-ed about how Islamofascists have been among the leading movements to take advantage of Black Lives Matter to advance their own vile platforms, even though Islam has its own history of anti-black bigotry:
Following the killing in police custody of Minneapolis resident George Floyd, several radical Muslim American organizations have joined in nationwide protests to show solidarity with black civil-rights protests. However, Floyd’s death has sparked difficult conversations about black-Muslim relations, as well as the implicit racial biases found in some Arab and South Asian communities.

Rather than acknowledge anti-black bigotry, Chicago Islamists—many of them with a history of anti-black discrimination—have minimized and excused this abhorrent behavior while exploiting Floyd’s death to satisfy their own anti-Israel agenda.

After some activists unjustly blamed a Palestinian convenience-store owner for calling the police on Floyd when he presented a counterfeit $20 bill, non-black Muslims have been forced to address the pervasive anti-black discrimination that has persisted within their communities.

This behavior is undoubtedly a cultural import from the Middle East and North Africa, where the descendants of slaves continue to experience systemic racism. In Chicago, mosques are predominantly organized along ethnocentric lines, and a decades-old feud between non-black Muslim storeowners and their African-American customers has occasionally resulted in violence.

Despite these biases, Islamists who support pro-Palestinian causes have been using the Black Lives Matter movement to demonize Israel and promote Palestinian resistance.
And the worst part is that, since BLM's built on antisemitic conspiracy theories, much like the Women's March turned out to be, their own leaders apparently have no issues, because such ideologies seem to trump everything else. It's absolutely stupefying. Read the rest of the article for more.

US army soldier collaborated with both Islamofascists and neo-nazis

This story about a traitor in the army is absolutely horrifying:
An American soldier has been charged with terrorism for plotting an ambush against members of his own unit.

US Army Private Ethan Melzer allegedly sent sensitive intelligence on US troop deployments to a neo-Nazi organization called the Order of the Nine Angles, the US State Department announced yesterday. The information he provided included the location of the troops, their movement, and their security arrangement, and was allegedly meant to be passed on to Jihadist groups in conflict with US forces.

Melzer is charged with conspiring and attempting to murder US nationals, conspiring and attempting to murder military service members, providing and attempting to provide material support to terrorists, and conspiring to murder and maim in a foreign country.

The plot was thwarted in late May, 2020, and Melzer was arrested on June 10.
If there's anything this proves, it's the alliances between modern National Socialists and Islamic jihadists. A very alarming example of a traitor endangering his own fellow troops to two enemies working together.

Haim Saban helped the UAE publish an anti-sovereignty op-ed in an Israeli paper

Haim Saban is a billionaire who used to work in children's TV entertainment in the US, and over the years was a huge Democrat donor. Now, it turns out he aided an enemy of Israel in pushing propaganda, and isn't supporting sovereignty for the right reasons:
Israeli-American billionaire and Democratic megadonor Haim Saban was involved in the publication of an op-ed piece warning against Israel’s plan to apply sovereignty to parts of Judea and Samaria, Channel 13’s Barak Ravid reported Friday.

According to the report, Israeli sources claimed that Saban was consulted by the United Arab Emirates’ ambassador to the US, Yousef Al Otaiba, for an opinion piece published by the Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot Friday morning.

In the piece, Al Otaiba warns Israel against implementing the sovereignty plan, arguing it will “send shock waves” throughout the Middle East, destabilizing moderate Arab states and harming Israel’s warming relations with US allies in the region, including the UAE.

Saban, a long-time acquaintance of Al Otaiba, was reportedly asked to help the UAE find a platform for addressing Israelis. Al Otaiba consulted with Saban, the report claims, with Saban assisting Al Otaiba in having his op-ed piece published by Yediot Aharonot. UAE leaders had planned to publish the piece in a prominent American newspaper, like The New York Times or Washington Post, but were persuaded by Saban to use an Israeli outlet. [...]

In late January, Saban endorsed the Trump plan, telling the Jewish Insider that the plan “offers a blueprint to promote a continued push towards a two-state solution in which Israel remains a Jewish and democratic state living in peace, prosperity, and, most importantly, in security alongside its neighbors.”
If Saban's that cozy with the Islamists, and his reasoning for supporting sovereignty amounts only to that, then he's clearly just another disgrace and shame who's not living in the US to do Israel any good. Wow, I am so glad he's no longer working in the children's segment of showbiz these days. Why, that could surely be one of the most troubling aspects about him - he was likely propagandizing to and indoctrinating the younger crowd. He doesn't belong in showbiz at all.

LA's mayor accepts money from Qatar

The mayor of Los Angeles has accepted funding from an Islamic state that's sponsored terrorism (H/T: Front Page Magazine):
Thanks to a $5 million donation from Qatar to the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles — the largest-ever single donation to the fund — the Angeleno Card program is being expanded.

Garcetti thanked the government of Qatar for the “truly generous humanitarian gift to Angeleno families.” He said the gift had special meaning, as it coincided with the start of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
If this is supposed to be their way of making repairs after the post-George Floyd riots, along with the Corona crisis, he's going about it the wrong way, and it could end up becoming very disastrous in the long run. But, that's California for you, a state that's long been sinking into one of the worst situations ever to be had.

An anti-Israeli terrorist dies

A terrorist who'd resided in Lebanon has deservedly died:
The former head of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement died Saturday night after a long illness. He was 62.

Ramadan Shalah had been in a coma for more than three years after a series of strokes that followed heart surgery, the terrorist group said. It didn't say where he died, but he is believed to have been in Lebanon.

Shalah led the Iranian-backed group for over 20 years, after its founder, Fathi Shikaki, was eliminated in Malta in a hit widely attributed to Israel. In 2018, the group named Shalah's deputy, Ziad Nakhalah, as a new leader.

Shalah was on the US "most wanted list" of terrorist suspects with a $5 million reward for information leading to his arrest or conviction.
So he was even reduced to comatose in his last years. He deserved that too.

This year's Jerusalem Day had limited attendance, but is taking place

The Jewish Press has some photos of people who took part in the Jerusalem Day celebrations, though this year's were unfortunately limited because of the Coronavirus situation. But, they did take place, and that's something to admire and be happy about. It's an important event celebrating the time we liberated the city from the grasp of the Islamofascist entity embodied by Jordan, and reinstated cohesion in 1967.
