HAMAS Terror Leader Yahya Sinwar Signs On As Iranian Puppet

August 28, 2017 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – HAMAS’ terror leader, Yahya Sinwar [born, Yahya Ibrahim Hassan Sinwar] held his first news conference today after having taken over the reins of HAMAS in February, replacing the long time leader, Khaled Mashal.

Upon assuming office Sinwar has spent the majority of his time repairing the strained relationship between the terrorist outfit and the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism, Iran.

At the press conference Sinwar stated that:

“[Iran is}…the largest backer financially and militarily” of the group as it prepares for war against the state of Israel; as he termed it, “developing our military strength in order to liberate ‘Palestine.’” [source, Hamas leader in Gaza: Ties with Iran now ‘fantastic’; we’re preparing battle for Palestine , Times of Israel]

Copping a defiant tone, Sinwar claimed that Hamas is, “…not afraid of a war and are ready for it,” while adding that “The Iranian military support to Hamas and al-Qassam is strategic,” and that the state of relations between the two entities has, “become fantastic and returned to its former era.”

HAMAS Linked CAIR: Gutting Constitution To Battle “White Supremacy”

August 22, 2017 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – Yesterday, CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, an organization linked to the Middle East terror group HAMAS by a federal court judge, put forth its “plan” to combat what it calls “white supremacy.”

The effort would be entirely ludicrous if America had not already been culturally weakened by 8 years of subterfuge by the Muslim mole, nee President, Obama, the Democrat Party, which itself has a long association with Jim Crow racism and the ever reliable Red Fourth Estate which is gleefully pushing the meme of hatred.

If followed, CAIR’s “plan” would entirely gut the U.S. Constitution and set the nation well on its way towards becoming another Islamic shithole along the lines of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria.

That CAIR would publicly advocate such subversive ideas is indicative of the civilizational crisis that is turning the West inside out. It also suggests that very few Americans are aware of the history of CAIR…a short primer follows:

CAIR was created by domestic jihadists as an alternative organization to the Islamic Association of Palestine [IAP] a publicity arm of HAMAS.

According to Wiki , not often charged with being a right-wing source of information:

“Several among IAP officers and founding members were Hamas senior leaders who participated to the 1993 Philadelphia meeting attended by Hamas officers. Some former Islamic Association of Palestine staffers and members were founding members of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). This is the case of Nihad Awad, CAIR’s executive director who was affiliated to the Islamic Association of Palestine, and who was also a “self-identified supporter of the Hamas movement.”

Additionally CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator/joint venturer in the United State’s largest and most successful prosecution of domestic funding of HAMAS, U.S. v Holy Land Foundation for Relief . Legally this means that CAIR was highly suspected to have been part of the conspiracy involving Holy Land, but was not prosecuted as part of the larger case.

The Red Pope Continues To Push The Unholy Meme Of Uncontrolled Immigration

By WILLIAM MAYER

August 21, 2017 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – We have, on numerous occasions addressed with great concern the increasingly leftist cant of Catholic dogma and in particular the very obvious Marxism of Pope Francis [for example see the monograph, Bitter Harvest: How Marxist “Progressives” Have Infiltrated the American Catholic Church and the 2015 piece, The National Security Implications of a Marxist Pope ]

In the long-form piece - “Bitter Harvest…” - written during the ObamaCare debates, this author noted that the scripturally proscribed heavy lobbying effort by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops [USCCB] in favor of a nationalized healthcare system that absolutely and very clearly encouraged and funded abortion [and other programs previously anathema to Rome] was the grandest effort to date by the Catholic Church to further entangle American citizens in the maw of a centralized, atheistic socialism.

“However, those paying close attention to Church matters noted the ongoing turmoil still being generated by Vatican II, viewing health care advocacy as just the next phase in the transformation of a religion from one in which freedom of choice was elemental, to one in which the limits of personal choice are demarked by government decree and justified by a deliberately skewed interpretation of faith.”

In the 2015 posting, dealing with Francis’ extensive tour of South America and the controversial statements he made along the way we observed that the defining nature of his “faith pronouncements” reeked of collectivism to the point of linking the Western ideal of individualism and liberty with slavery!

“Many people are hoping for a change capable of releasing them from the bondage of individualism and the despondency it spawns.”

It is through statements such as this [and there have been dozens and dozens of other examples] that Francis shows himself to be either an incredibly shallow thinker, apparently unmindful of the most basic aspects of religious philosophy or, and we suspect to be the case, a garden variety Marxist at a loss to reconcile his new-age, secularized Catholicism with 2,000 years of traditional precedent and the post-Reformational foundations of Western thought.

The Challenge of “Modernizing” Islam, The PipeLineNews Review

Christine Douglass-Williams; pp 295, ©2017, Encounter Books

As Reviewed By CHERYL GATESWORTH

August 21, 2017 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – In, “ The Challenge of “Modernizing” Islam,” Christine Douglass-Williams has presented us with an interesting read, so let us begin with the phrasing of the title.

The use of the word “modernization” in such a blanket sense, reeks of an assertion which avoids the nasty possibility that “modernizing Islam” may be more than simply “challenging,” i.e., a doable, albeit difficult undertaking. It may be, as it is increasingly seeming to be the case, that the project of “modernizing Islam” is internally contradicted by the belief system itself.

After all it is difficult to argue with a set of precepts so rigid that the prescription for apostasy and heresy is death, often imposed using “cruel and unusual” means.

The first half of the book consists of interviews with eight Muslims living in the West who consider themselves moderates and reformers. All the respondents believe that Islam can be brought into the 21st century and made compatible with classical Western civilization. Ms. Douglass-Williams poses largely the same set of questions to each respondent. These involve, but are not limited to, reconciling parts of the Qur’an and the Hadith with modernity; devising metrics whereby to distinguish moderate Muslims from Islamists, and separating church/mosque and state in an environment where the nature of the Islamic creed suggests that it is essentially a faith-based, supremacist political ideology.

The eight respondents currently live in the West but have roots in Muslim majority nations. They hold Western values and condemn the Islamic practices of female genital mutilation, the death penalty for apostasy, the inequality of women and other troubling issues. Few counter-jihadists would find fault with the political and ethical philosophies these outliers espouse nor with their base desire to make Islam compatible with liberal Western values.

“Killed By A Negro” - Massa Anderson Cooper Vanderbilt’s Slaveholding Ancestor
 

August 16, 2017 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The media is in the anti-Trump slop-froth of the week, this go ‘round alleging that the President of the United States is a white power, David Duke loving racist. So over the top is some of this mendacity that one might be led to believe that Trump has the smoldering embers of burnt crosses hidden behind his desk in the Oval Office.

However as the cable networks throw this bilge around, inconvenient, but genuinely relevant truths emerge. Case in point, CNN’s media darling, anchor Anderson Cooper, born with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth, his family on his mother Gloria Vanderbilt’s side having been among the richest in the United States.

But since being rich is only a sin if the party is…let’s say President Donald J. Trump, let’s not go there. It’s unseemly and entirely too easy a jab to take…especially since his net worth has been estimated by some sources as being only $100M , pocket change for Mr. Trump.

But hidden away for years now is a video segment produced by PBS during which Cooper is introduced [we highly suspect, not for the first time] to his Fourth Great Grandfather, Burel Boykin who lived during the middle 19 th century.

But what is so novel about having a relative who was alive during the grand American debate [read Civil War] about slavery, it just means he has deep roots…right?

Not exactly...as it turns out that Cooper’s great, great, great, great grandpa Burel Boykin, was not only a slave owner but one apparently so vile that he was murdered in 1860, as the Census Records state, “Killed by a Negro.”

Of course the poor wretch was immediately lynched without a trial.

HAMAS Linked CAIR Keen On Destroying Iconic American Statuary

August 15, 2017 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – CAIR, the HAMAS linked/unindicted co-conspirator Council on American Islamic Relations, is reverting to true form in its recently announced program advocating destruction of memorials devoted to Civil War themes involving the Confederacy.

The following language from the CAIR website:

Requesting the removal of all Confederate Memorials, Flags, Street Names, and Symbols from Public Spaces and Property.”

Destroying historical artifacts has always been a feature of Islamic colonialism because it is a way of being able to gain some level of control of the historical record and when past deeds are no longer represented by totemic art, the resultant vacuum becomes rife for exploitation by jihadist apologists and their historical revisionist/negationist counterparts.

Although the practice is rooted in Islamic antiquity [especially noteworthy, the myriad Christian churches and Jewish temples that were reduced to rubble before mosques were constructed over the sites, for example the Ottoman “conversion” of the Hagia Sophia basilica in Turkey into a mosque] over the last two decades there have been more than enough examples of Muslim efforts to remove evidence of previous cultures that have been judged to be incompatible with a Shari’a based conception of the world, to demonstrate the point.

Other notable illustrations include the dynamiting of the Buddhas of Bamiyan in Afghanistan by the Taliban in 2001 and the wide scale destruction of similar archeological treasures by ISIS in Palmyra, Syria the Mar Elian Monastery, Syria and the city of Nineveh, Iraq [2,500 years ago the largest city on the planet] and numerous other world heritage type sites.

Charlottesville And Beyond: Frankly My Dear, I Do Give A Damn
City On Lockdown, Pulls Website For 48 Hours, PR “Mailboxes Full”

By WILLIAM MAYER

August 14, 2017 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Over the weekend, a group supporting the preservation of Southern - especially Civil War focused - historical artifacts, UniteTheRight, attempted to exercise its 1 st Amendment right to assemble in Charlottesville, Virginia’s “Emancipation Park” [which features a large statue of Robert E. Lee, commander of the Confederate Army during the Civil War] upon the authority of a duly executed city permit.

The controversy centered around the demands by some, both in and outside the area, to remove the statue of Lee upon the claim that the very presence of the effigy was racist and an affront to black citizens.

It was and remains the position of UniteTheRight that removing publicly displayed objects that happen to offend the sensibility of certain individuals denies the right of all citizens to be exposed to the icons of previous ages, preventing them from having tangible access to their historical roots.

Once obtained, keeping the required event permit in effect was not an easy process for the UniteTheRight-ers.

It was first issued amidst little controversy, designating Emancipation Park as the rally site. However as the event drew near, the city revoked the permit for that location [a central downtown venue, just to the West of the University of Virginia] and instead demanded that the assembly could only be held in McIntire Park, which is essentially in a residential area about 6 miles north of the initial downtown location.

Case Closed: Criminal Libyan Migrant Traffickers Colluding With NGO “Rescue Ships”

By EMERSON VERMAAT

August, 7 2017 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - There is now clear evidence of a pattern of collusion between ruthless Libyan migrant traffickers and those manning the NGO affiliated “rescue” ships that pick up mostly African economic migrants near the Libyan coast. The Italian justice authorities belatedly found out that there is coordination and cooperation between them. For forty days, an Italian undercover agent was on board of one of these ships, made shocking discoveries and reported his findings to the prosecutor in sourthern Italy. Conversations between criminal Libyan migrant traffickers and so-called rescuers were also monitored, being mindful that assisting in clandestine immigration is punishable under Italian law.

The undercover agent was on board of the “rescue ship” Iuventa, sailing under the Dutch flag, but owned by the German non-governmental organizaton [NGO] “Jugend Rettet,” [translation: Save the Young] This radical leftist youth organization was founded in Berlin in 2015 with a view of profitably serving as an intermediary in the illegal immigration of tens of thousands of illegal immigrants from Africa who are deliberately put in small boats in the Mediterranean by well-paid North African migrant traffickers, after which the fate of the migrants are at best a gamble. This writer reported last month about these and related activities [see, Emerson Vermaat, “Humanitarian” Organizations In League With Libyan Migrant Traffickers In Mediterranean Sea , PipeLineNews.org, 7.10.17]

The Italian undercover agent discovered that the crew of “Iuventa” was very friendly towards the traffickers, allowing them to go back to Libya in their own boat. Video footage made by the undercover agent shows that crew members and two traffickers were waving to each other. There was no life-threatening situation for the largely economic migrants on board of the trafficker’s small boat because the sea was calm. Therefore, this was not a rescue operation, but assistance to clandestine immigration.

“Losing To Win” - Do The GOP Deep Staters Have A Doomsday Plan To Destroy Trump?

By William Mayer

August 1, 2017 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – Please allow a brief preface, as this piece has been adapted from part of an epilogue to a new book about the Deep State that we intend to publish by the end of this month. It didn’t seem to really interface well with the larger work so ti was removed with the idea of making it our August lead…and thus here it is.

In observing the open warfare against the CIC that is taking place in Washington, DC, the I95 corridor and the major centers where the power of the Deep State is most effectively exercised, it occurs to this writer that a great secret might be hidden in plain view.

Perhaps it’s a consequence of a kind of “deer in the headlights” scenario where a variety of especially dazzling baubles [the never-ending drumbeat of hysterical rumors that make up the manic 24x7, anti-Trump fake news cycle] have served to obscure a potentially deadly threat that lurks within the reflected glow.

A long-accepted and basic attribute of physics, mathematics and other hard sciences is that the more labored the hypothesis, the less likely that it may represent the solution or explanation of whatever phenomena is being examined. In this context, the ability to step back far enough to be able to engage in a meta-analysis, sometimes leads to a perfectly simple appearing, yet elegantly rigorous, internally coherent argument that proves the theory with a near ontogenetic level of certitude.

It’s the type of thing that might cause one to figuratively smack himself in the forehead, muttering “why couldn’t I see this before, it’s so simple?” Think of it as the E=MC2 effect, the invisible zebra set against a wall painted with black and white vertical stripes.
