UC Berkeley Still Trying to Get Illegal Alien Student Released

"Free Luis!"

The saga of Luis Mora, a UC Berkeley student in ICE custody, continues. UCB Chancellor Carol Christ is doing everything short of engineering a jail break to get Mora released.

Mora overstayed his visa after his reported effort to gain DACA status was rejected. Yet UCB continues to expend tax-payer funded time and resource to get him out of jail. Apparently, the University of California under the tenure of UC President Janet Napolitano feels that university campuses are sanctuaries ("safe spaces" ) from the law.

They are not.

Oregon Koranic Instructor Arrested on Child Sex Charges

Mohammad L. Hasan.

A 50-year old man named Mohammad L Hasan, a Koranic instructor, has been arrested near Portland, Oregon and charged with sexual abuse of two young girls who were his students. Police believe there are other victims.

Here is more from local media KPTV with a video.

Below is the website of Hasan's school, the American Islamic Center of the Holy Quran

It will be interesting to follow this investigation.

UC Berkeley: Jewish Students to Meet With Vice Chancellor re: Hatem Bazian

The saga of UC Berkeley professor and agitator Hatem Bazian continues. As a result of recent (re) tweets of his showing clearly anti-semitic images and language, a group of Jewish students will be meeting with the Vice Chancellor to discuss their concerns.

This is not an isolated incident. Bazian, who is also co-founder of Students for Justice in Palestine (an organization that uses tactics of disruption), has a long history of controversial statements about Jews made in the course of his attacks on Israel. It is not Bazian's opposition to Israel that is at issue. UC Berkeley must consider whether Bazian has crossed the line into attacking Jews in general. In my opinion, he has.

Interesting Story From Sweden

There isn't much positive to report out of Sweden  these days unless you want to concentrate on mid summer festivals. Here is one that gives a little hope, however. It's the story of an Iranian Muslim woman, Annahita Parsan, who fled to Sweden with her two children to escape an abusive husband, converted to Christianity, and is now a minister in the Church of Sweden. She claims she has been instrumental in converting some 1500 Muslims to Christianity. Of course, she faces deadly risks.

I offer this piece not as an advertisement for Christianity, rather to ask why this woman has to face death threats for leaving Islam and converting Muslims. I know no other religion that reacts this way to its members leaving the flock, converting, or trying to proselytize to Muslims. Of course, we know that Annahita is not a rare case. Far from it. It is all too typical. This is an aspect of Islam-based on Islamic doctrine and the Koran- that must be reformed.

Trump Is Right to Cut UNRWA Funding

President Trump's decision this week to cut funding to the UN Relief and Works Agency is a welcome development. This agency was formed in 1950 to specifically support Palestinians, who as a result of the 1948 war became refugees in the West Bank, Gaza and neighboring countries like Jordan and Lebanon. It has become a never-ending funding operation, unique in that it addresses one specific group of refugees.

The US contributes over $330 million dollars annually to this project. In spite of that, we get no love or respect back from the Palestinians, who detest us as allies of Israel. In addition, there is evidence that much of this money is not well spent.

During the last round of fighting in 2014 between Israel and the forces of Hamas in Gaza, it was found that Hamas fighters were using UNRWA schools from which to store and launch rockets and fire at the Israelis much in keeping with their tradition of fighting behind civilians.

Perhaps just as troubling, a number of exposes have revealed that UNRWA schools are teaching small children to hate Israel and worse yet, to hate Jews. These reports have been going on for years. generations of Palestinian children have been taught jihad for the purpose of destroying Israel and driving the evil Jews out. It's in the lessons, and it's in the textbooks. Is this what we are supposed to pay for?

As expected the liberals here in the US are screaming bloody murder. This CBS report tells us that children are in danger of not eating because of the cut in funds from the US.

Typical. No real discussion of how Hamas, the rulers of Gaza, have contributed to the peoples' woes by concentrating on attacking Israel rather than bettering the lives of their citizens. Where is the responsibility of corrupt leaders like Yasir Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas, who have built their own little empires over the decades. And why 70 years after these people became refugees do they and their descendants still languish in these camps that evolved into concrete slums? Exactly what has the Arab world done to assimilate these people and help them stop being refugee "Palestinians" and become productive Arabs? No. Much better for them to have succeeding generations of "Palestinians" as perpetual refugees who will one day re-conquer "Palestine".

Finally, an American president has had the courage to cut the funding to this corrupt and never ending white elephant. It should be cut to zero. And don't worry about the anger coming from the Palestinians. They hate us anyway.

Martin Schulz Gets Heckled in Dortmund

Martin Schulz is the former head of the EU and  as such, he was a frequent target of Nigel Farage's barbs in the European Parliament. In short, Schulz is a boob who is like Angela Merkel, is pushing more migration into Germany and Western Europe. Schulz is currently trying to form a coalition government with Merkel. That will be yet another nail in the coffin for Germany.

Yesterday at a press conference in Dortmund, he was heckled and called a "Volksverraetor" (traitor to his people), which in my view he is. Watch as he dismisses his critics and even the leaders of Poland, Austria, Denmark and the Czech Republic essentially as "Nazis".

Here is Farage dressing down Schulz in 2012.

30 Worst Colleges for Jewish Students 2016

Hat tip Squid and Cal Political Review

This seems dated and I may have posted this in the past, but it is worth repeating. Or it is likely that the report on 2017 isn't ready yet. This is a survey that identified the 30 worst colleges in North America  for Jewish students in 2016. Notable is the high number of California universities, mostly in the UC system.

The culprits? First and foremost, we can start with the pro-Palestinian lobby, both students and faculty, as well as their invited speakers. The constant railing against Israel has a spillover effect into downright anti-semitism. Secondly, I blame the feckless university presidents and chancellors for allowing this climate of anti-semitism to fester and grow,

An Exorcism at Georgetown U.

Georgetown and its university were the scene of  The Exorcist. In truth, there's a lot to exorcise from Georgetown University. Actually, a little less now that an academic adviser, Jeff Bernstein, has resigned after sending a conservative commentator a tweet worthy of the movie.

Good riddance. It's just just another example of which side is guilty of the most intolerance.

Things Get Schlimmer and Schlimmer in "the New Germany"

*Worse and worse

Not since Hitler was around have things been so bad in Germany thanks to Angela Merkel. As she sits in her bunker trying to save her skin by forming a coalition government, something Hitler never thought of, the attacks by migrants and refugees go on unabated. Gates of Vienna has a run down on the latest from the Pit of Misery.

We begin in Cottbus, where a couple of Germans were attacked apparently failed to move off the sidewalk to show their respect to some new arrivals from Syria.

And in Leipzig.

Meanwhile, the Propaganda Ministry is busy telling Germans how they should really feel about the unfortunate Afghan who murdered a girl in the town of Kandel.

And in Hamburg, a Palestinian "refugee" knife attacker answered the age old question of why when he told a court that he did it for religious reasons-to kill as many German Christians as possible.

But don't worry all you Germans (and Western Europeans). This is the new generation of "workers" who will support the welfare state by paying taxes because you all are not reproducing. That will all eventually, but in the meantime you have to pay more taxes to support these people who are reproducing about 8 times as much as you are. Also, in the meantime, you have to stay indoors at night and make sure your women are not provocatively dressed lest they be set upon and, well can figure it out.

The Justice Department has brought an 11-count indictment against Mark Lambert (54) of Maryland in connection with the Uranium One case.

Stand by. This could be the start of something big.

Trump's Comments on Haiti and Africa

Image result for wolf blitzer in the situation room
"We have a situation."

The Democrats and their allies in the media are going crazy over President Trump's comment about Haiti and certain African countries being shit holes (Hell, if CNN and the newspapers can use the term, I might as well.) Trump purportedly (He denies it) asked why we are bringing in immigrants from shit hole countries as opposed to say, Norway, whose prime minster was a White House guest this week. His remark was made this week during a White House meeting with both Republican and Democrat leaders.

Assuming Trump said it, it was a big mistake at least diplomatically. Haiti has already condemned the remark. Trump also should have assumed that Democrats like Dick Durban would keep it a secret. That would be akin to asking an elephant to pass the peanuts. Now Trump has to endure reporters  shouting, "Are you a racist?" at him.

However, what Trump said is something most of us would say in a bar. That includes me. There are plenty of countries I consider as being "shit hole" countries. I have never been to Haiti, nor have I visited any African countries except Egypt. Yet my perception of Haiti and most African countries is that they are failed states run by corrupt and dictatorial rulers without full human rights. Does that make them "shit hole" countries? You tell me.

Yet, that doesn't mean that everybody who comes from  a "shit hole" country is a shit hole person. Quite the contrary. Every country, including ours, has both good and bad people.We have millions of good people in our country who came from those "shit hole" countries.

When you are president of the United States. there are certain things you don't say in public or in front of people who will taddle on you in a New York minute. Once again, Trump has put his foot in his mouth.

Yet, I cannot ignore the sheer hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton's tweet today condemning Trump for the comment. This coming from the same family and their fraudulent foundation that looted Haiti after their tragic earthquake.

Of course, all of this distraction enables the media to avoid having an honest discussion about the achievements of the Trump presidency, such as the economic recovery and the fact that ISIS has been driven from their "caliphates" in Iraq and Syria. They (the media) can also ignore the information flowing out about how the Obama Justice Department reportedly used the discredited Russian Dossier to apply for a FISA warrant against the Trump team during the campaign. They can also continue to ignore the Hillary scandals, such as how she and the DNC rigged the primary against Bernie Sanders and how the FBI under James Comey fixed the outcome of their email investigation to exonerate her no matter what.

No indeed. Trump called Haiti a "shit hole".
