This video is worth watching in its 44+ minutes entirety.  The video is about the bloody history of Islam in Europe and how it effects us to this day. This video uses maps and graphics and it is based on historical numbers and facts that you may not see anywhere else.

The only thing I disagree on with Bill Warner is that he says we are afraid of Islam  No, we are not afraid.  We are repulsed.

Liberals love to seize on any perceived anti-Muslim bias to claim New York suffers from severe Islamophobia, but official statistics show that Jews suffer far more attacks.

The NY Post reports that anti-Semitic incidents jumped 35 percent so far this year, with 85 incidents compared to 63 last year. The number of anti-Muslim hate crimes was 15, compared to seven last year.

But the good news is that Obama’s ship is sinking.

During the Gaza operation, the Palestinian Authority and Fatah, both headed by Mahmoud Abbas, actively and repeatedly desecrated the memory of the Holocaust by comparing Israel’s measures against Hamas to the Nazi genocide, via Palestinian Media Watch:

During the Gaza operation, the Palestinian Authority and Fatah, both headed by Mahmoud Abbas, actively and repeatedly desecrated the memory of the Holocaust by comparing Israel’s measures against Hamas to the Nazi genocide:

“[Israel has] become adorers of Nazism, and implement that barbaric model on the flesh of our children.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 26, 2014]
Often the PA claimed Israel was worse than the Nazis:
“Israel… has surpassed Hitler’s massacres… By calling Israel Nazi, sadist and fascist for its present actions, we are letting it off lightly.”
[Fatah leader in Gaza Atef Abu Saif,
PA TV, July 21, 2014]
At times, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu was the focus of the PA hate speech:
“Benjamin Netanyahu is a descendant of the Nazis, worships Hitler’s ways and imitates him in all the Holocausts he has perpetrated.”
Fatah leader and official PA daily columnist Yahya Rabah
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 3, 2014]
Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust Memorial center, condemned what it called “demagogic abuse of Holocaust imagery and language” as desecration of the memory of the Holocaust:
“As an institution dedicated to Holocaust remembrance, we are also gravely concerned by the demagogic abuse of Holocaust imagery and language which distorts the past as well as the current reality for political purposes. Exploiting these terms from the Holocaust, in order to incite and inflame hatred, desecrates the memory of the Holocaust.”
[http://www.yadvashem.org/yv/en/pressroom/pressreleases/pr_details.asp?cid=887, July 24, 2014]
PA and Fatah leaders and official news outlets used the following Holocaust comparisons and hate expressions to define Israelis and/or Israel’s actions:
  • “Holocaust unlike any that has been recorded”
  • “Reenacting the Holocaust”
  • “Surpassed Nazism and fascism”
  • “Descendant of the Nazis”
  • “The new Nazis”
  • “Opened its gates to the death factories”
  • “Holocaust state”
  • “Genocidal war”
  • “Holocaust war”
  • “Scum is what this Hebrew state is”
  • “Nazi Israeli mentality”
  • “Flinging its neo-fascist flames”
  • “Barbarity, arrogance, and bloodletting”
  • “Surpassed Hitler’s massacres”
  • “Nazi, sadist and fascist”
  • “The Nazi crimes”
  • “[Gaza] reminded the world of the residents of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II, after the atom bombs had been dropped”
  • “Israel, the rogue state, which is still blackmailing Germany, Europe and humanity with the Holocaust”
In addition to embracing comparisons between Israel’s Gaza operation and the Holocaust, articles in the official PA daily also included demonization and hate speech, as typified in the following description of Israeli soldiers:
“Robotic soldiers from hell, burning with extremism like fiery devils, possessed by the culture of murder and death.”
[Fatah MP (until recently PA Minister of Prisoners' Affairs) Issa Karake,
Ma'an, independent Palestinian news agency, July 25, 2014]
The official PA daily used its Holocaust comparison as “proof” that Israel has no right to exist:
“This war has proved once again that Israel is a completely artificial state without  historic or moral roots, a myth produced by the settlement wave – a fact that prevents it from living normally. As long as it exists, it will only produce things that are against humanity… Benjamin Netanyahu is a descendant of the Nazis [who] worships Hitler’s ways and imitates him in all the Holocausts he has perpetrated.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 3, 2014]
Palestinian Media Watch has reported that the PA and Fatah regularly desecrate the memory of the Holocaust with misappropriated Holocaust terminology. All of the examples in this Special Report were published during and immediately after the 2014 Gaza war, and are from official PA and Fatah sources. Mahmoud Abbas is chairman of both the PA and Fatah.

(PMW released a report last month on PA use of Holocaust imagery during the Gaza war. However, as the Holocaust desecration by the PA has continued unabated PMW felt it was important to release this updated report documenting the full extent. Even after this report was finalized, PMW researchers documented three additional examples of Holocaust desecration that are not included in this report.)

Intelligence obtained by the French secret services in the Middle East sheds new light on Britain’s perfidious role in the Arab-Israeli War of Independence. The question of Britain’s role in the war between Israel and the Arab states in 1948 is one of the most studied issues in the historiography of the War of Independence.

A major hurdle when studying the 1948 war is the lack of access to Arab archives. The Syrian documents, as seen in the article by Haaretz and obtained by French intelligence – which contain uncensored private correspondence and secret agreements between the Arab leaders, as well as diplomatic exchanges – give scholars a closer look at the Arab stand toward a Jewish state in Palestine without having to rely solely on Israeli and Western archives, Arab rulers’ inflammatory public rhetoric and memoirs, or newspaper articles.

This article is a must-read. The thousands of Syrian and other Arab documents found in the French archives, together with British intelligence reports obtained by French intelligence, confirm that the role of the British secret services in the Middle East during and after World War II comprises the “missing dimension” in the historiography of the region in the 1940s.

Two conclusions can be drawn from research into these documents, which are relevant to the role of British intelligence in the war in Palestine.

The first is that, in the 1940s, Britain conducted a two-track policy in the Middle East: one, a well-documented, official policy defined by Whitehall under both the Conservative and Labour parties; the second was informal and secretive, which can be termed “regional,” implemented by “agents in the field,” which left few traces in British archives.

First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and his wife Frances Fox Piven (both longtime members of the Democratic Socialists of America, where Piven today is an honorary chair), the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

Obama is using the Cloward-Piven strategy to collapse the system by making Americans dependent on entitlements.  Be aware, America.

Welles Remy Crowther.  Rest in peace.

Welles Remy Crowther, age 24.

Place killed: World Trade Center.

Resident of Upper Nyack, New York.

Welles Remy Crowther was an equities trader on the South Tower’s 104th floor, who helped dozens of people to safety on September 11.

His body was found in March, 2002, alongside several firefighters and emergency workers bunched in a command post in the South Tower lobby.

———-

I am continuing the sad but critical annual mission to post my tribute to Welles Remy Crowther, in memory of the thirteen year anniversary of the unprovoked attack on the United States by Muslim terrorists.

Welles Remy Crowther was born the oldest of three children, displaying his fearlessness, spirit and selflessness early and often growing up in the New York’s northern suburbs, his parents say.

He doted on his two younger sisters, Paige and Honor, and followed his father Jefferson’s lead, always carrying a bandanna in his back pocket (Welles preferred red, his father blue) and joining him as a volunteer firefighter as a teenager.

In high school, he was the type of kid who would selflessly feed the puck to the hockey team’s lowest-scoring player, hoping to give his teammate his first goal.

To his friends, he was the guy who would always listen and lend a hand.

Rain or shine, as a child, he would find something to do with his younger sisters, whether it was practicing lacrosse moves or having pillow fights in the hallway of their home.

At the age of 16, after years of helping his dad clean his village’s fire trucks, he became a junior volunteer firefighter. Two years later, he earned his certification.

A stellar student and lacrosse player at Boston College, Crowther joined Sandler O’Neil and Partners after graduation, settling into his office on the South Tower’s 104th floor.

While he loved his job, Welles told his dad that he really wanted to join the FDNYor possibly the CIA or FBI — so he wouldn’t be stuck behind a desk and would be able to help others.

But that’s where he was on the morning of September 11th. Behind his desk.

He made one final call to his mom, Alison, from his office at 9:12 a.m., minutes after his tower was struck, leaving a brief, calm message saying, “Mom, this is Welles. I want you to know that I’m OK.”

That call was all the Crowthers knew about their son’s final moments until police knocked on their door in March, 2002, six months after the devastating attack on the United States.

Alison Crowther said the New York medical examiner’s office told them Welles’ body had been found intact, with no signs of burns, alongside firefighters and emergency workers then running a command center in the South Tower’s lobby.

Welles Remy Crowther was a hero on September 11. One of his greatest ambitions in life was to help others.

To help others. How many people do you know whose singular ambition in life is to Help Others?

Welles Crowther trained to be a volunteer fireman and his personality and character and spirit drove him to elevate and soar above the rest of us; he helped others escape the burning, twisted metal so that they could live, while he in turn, risked his own life so that others could survive. Welles Crowther spent his final moments, not thinking of his own safety, but helping others. He was truly a remarkable man.

Ling Young is one of the people Welles saved. She sat bloody and petrified with some others in the World Trade Center — the lights out, smoke engulfing the room and pain searing through their bodies. There was no escape from where they were in the South Tower, in pieces after being hit by United Airlines Flight 175 as far as they could tell.

Then out of nowhere, a young man burst in and took control – with a red bandanna on his face. In a strong voice, he directed them to the stairway — which was veiled by darkness, wreckage and haze — telling the injured to get out and the healthy to help them down.

“I see this incredible hero, running back and forth and saving the day,” recalled Judy Wein. “In his mind, he had a duty to do — to save people.”

“He’s definitely my guardian angel — no ifs, ands or buts — because without him, we would be sitting there, waiting [until] the building came down,” echoes Ling Young.

Wein and Young were separated by a few minutes and a few floors that day, but they share a similar story and a single hero: Welles Crowther.

Judy Wein remembers his penetrtaing eyes, firm voice and the red bandanna he wore over his nose and mouth — but didn’t know his name.

His name was Welles Crowther.

“If he hadn’t come back, I wouldn’t have made it,” said Wein. “People can live 100 years and not have the compassion, the wherewithal to do what he did.”

Welles’ father, Mr. Jefferson Crowther, wrote the following about his late son, (originally excerpted from http://www.september11victims.com/september11victims/VictimInfo.asp?ID=2895):

He was courageous and strong and selfless on that terrible morning. He faced the devil head on three times to help the victims down from the 78th floor sky lobby of Tower 2, and when he got to the lobby he stayed to assist in the orderly evacuation. His body was found on March 19, 2002 with the Firefighters of Ladder 4 FDNY. He too was a firefighter, a volunteer with Empire Hook & Ladder Company #1 in Upper Nyack, NY. His mother, Alison, and I with his two younger sisters are incredibly proud of his actions that morning, and we hope it inspires other young people to become involved as volunteers, either as firefighters, ambulance corps personnel, or in any capacity that your community needs. For that is the true strength of the United States of America. Thank you, and may God bless all of you.— Jefferson Crowther, father of the late Welles Remy Crowther.

Welles gave his life for people he did not even know. His mother, Alison Crowther, said:

I think he was blessed by God, and I think he was surrounded by a protection from God to be able to do what he did that day, and I think that that is — maybe all we can ask of life, is that we live our lives as fully and as beautifully and as completely and as spiritually whole as what Welles did, as he did.

Paige Hope Crowther, Welles younger sister, wrote the following on the 9-11 Heroes site (originally excerpted from http://www.9-11heroes.us/v/Welles_Remy_Crowther.php) :

Welles was my older brother, my protector. He was an amazing young man and, although our loss was great, I find solace in knowing that in his last moments, he took on the role of being the protector of so many others. He was truly a guardian angel that day, and still is today. He is with me always, and I will forever feel his presence. He is in my thoughts, dreams and prayers everyday and if we pass his heroic story on, in this way, he will live forever.

Jeff Crowther hopes his son’s story will inspire people to become a volunteer firefighter, to give money to the homeless every day like Welles did, to set goals and follow through.

“If Welles’ story helps people to think of others then God bless them, God bless him,” said his father. “He didn’t live long enough to be head of a corporation or do good works or endow a museum. But what he did on September 11, that’s his legacy.”

The Crowthers have established a trust fund that will fuel awards given to high school students who exemplify the type of person their son was, as well as so many others who lost their lives that day.

“Yes, we mourn their loss, but if we only think about what we lost and not what we’ve had, we’ll just die,” Alison said. “So we have to live in the beauty of what their lives were — and who they were as human beings because that’s what we celebrate and that’s what we fill our lives with.”

PA sports officials condemn friendly game between Palestinian and Israeli kids:

“A crime against humanity”

“An act conceived by sick souls”
“A crime and an unpatriotic and immoral act” 
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Last week, Palestinian and Israeli boys met in Southern Israel to play in a football match organized by the Israeli Peres Center for Peace. The Palestinian Authority daily reprinted an article from Agence France-Presse that described the match and the initiative in a positive light. However, news of the joint sports activity with “the Zionist enemy” was not well received by PA and Fatah leaders.

In reaction to the friendly game, Jibril Rajoub, Deputy Secretary of Fatah’s Central Committee and Head of the Palestinian Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, stated that:

 

“Any activity of normalization in sports with the Zionist enemy is a crime against humanity.”

In a Facebook post, Rajoub stated that “for a while now the Palestinian sports leadership and community – the Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, the Palestinian Olympic Committee and the Palestinian Football Association – have opposed such activities,” and specified that “normalization in sports with the Zionist occupation is a crime.” He demanded that “all individuals and institutions distance themselves from such activities, especially because their recurrence would arouse disgust and aversion towards all members of the [Palestinian] sports community.” [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 8, 2014, and posted on Jibril Rajoub's official Facebook page, Sept. 6, 2014]

Others called for an investigation and for the prosecution of the Palestinian organizers who agreed to participate in the match with the Israelis. Denouncing the match as “a crime and an unpatriotic and immoral act,” member of the Palestinian Olympic Committee Abd Al-Salam Haniyeh demanded that Rajoub “immediately interrogate the organizers of the match, settle the account with them and prosecute them on charges of serious treason against the blood of the Martyrs [who died in the Gaza war] and violation of the decisions made by the Palestinian sports community’s leadership.” [Sama, independent Palestinian news agency, Sept. 3, 2014]

The National Committee Against Normalization in Palestine “condemned the participation of children from the West Bank in a football match between Palestinian and Israeli children,” and “called on the heads of the Palestinian sports [community] and the Palestinian leadership to discover who is behind this ‘normalization match.'” The Committee’s Secretary General, Jihad Uweida, expressed “surprise” and “astonishment” that Palestinians would “do Israel a free service” by participating in such an event at a time when the National Committee Against Normalization in Palestine “is conducting an international campaign for expelling Israeli sports from the international sports system, and after international sports organizations expressed their intention of boycotting this entity [Israel].” [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 5, 2014]

The leadership of Fatah’s branch in Yatta, the hometown of the boys participating in the match, held “an urgent meeting to discuss the ramifications of the normalization matches” and “strongly condemned” the event. Fatah branch secretary Dr. Kamal Makhamreh said that the participation in the match “was an individual act, conceived by sick souls that agreed to be humiliated for a handful of money,” and he “urged the residents to supervise their children and distance them from these kinds of activities, which damage our cause.” Another Fatah official, the Yatta branch spokesperson, Muhammad Al-Birawi, said that Fatah “has demanded that the [Palestinian] Security Forces settle the account with these reckless people (i.e., the Palestinian organizers of the event).” [Ma'an, independent Palestinian news agency, Sept. 4, 2014]

This is not the first time PA and Fatah leaders have opposed what they refer to as “normalization” with Israel in sports. In a video publicized by Palestinian Media Watch last year, Jibril Rajoub stated that he would fire any Palestinian sportsman who engages in “normalization” with Israel.

The following is the positive report on the Israeli-Palestinian match from Agence France-Presse, which was reprinted by the official PA daily:

 

Headline: “Palestinian and Israeli children participate in friendly football matches a few kilometers from the devastated Gaza Strip”

 

“After a summer of brutal war, destruction and fatalities, Palestinian and Israeli children met on Monday [Sept. 1, 2014] to participate in football matches a few kilometers from the devastated Gaza Strip.
About a week after the ceasefire that put an end to the destructive war in Gaza, which lasted 50 days, approximately 80 children, ages 6-16, met for a tournament in Kibbutz Dorot, located in southern Israel, where rockets launched from the Gaza Strip had landed.
The Israeli children came from communities located near the besieged Gaza Strip, while the Palestinian children came from Yatta in the southern Gaza Strip (sic, should be West Bank. Yatta is a city south of Hebron).
This tournament was part of an initiative that was launched 12 years ago, whose original aim was to bring Palestinian [boy]s from occupied East Jerusalem and Israeli boys closer together. Many of the children had already played in previous tournaments organized by the Peres Center for Peace, which is run by former Israeli President Shimon Peres.
The tension was easily discernable at first, but the young players’ enthusiasm for the game eventually prevailed. The war in Gaza resulted in the death of 2,140 Palestinians, a quarter of them children, and of 71 Israelis – most of them soldiers. Ofer, 11, from Sderot, a town in southern Israel where many rockets had landed, said: ‘It’s great to come back here and enjoy our time [together], after weeks of being stuck at home during the war.’
Qusai, 11, said: ‘I love it when we play together like this. I hope that one day there will be peace between Arabs and Jews and that there will be no more wars and death…
Shimon Peres, who concluded his term as ninth President of Israel in July [2014] was also present… Peres, the 90-year-old Nobel Peace Prize laureate, said, while holding a football: ‘Don’t play against each other but with each other.'”
From Agence France-Presse
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 3, 2014]

 The following are longer excerpts of the reports on the PA and Fatah leaders’ condemnations of the friendly game:

 

Headline: “Rajoub: ‘Normalization in sports with the Zionist occupation is a crime'”

 

“[Deputy Secretary of Fatah's Central Committee,] Head of the [Palestinian] Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, Chairman of the Olympic Committee, and Chairman of the [Palestinian] Football Association Jibril Rajoub said any activity of normalization in sports with the Zionist enemy is a crime against humanity. He said that the position of the sports [community] leadership on the issue is perfectly clear.
Rajoub’s statements were made in response to a sports activity held a few days ago (i.e., a football match between Palestinian and Israeli children sponsored by the Israeli Peres Center for Peace).
This [event] was publicized by internet sites and local newspapers.
Rajoub emphasized the following points:
1.    The game was an Israeli attempt to cover up their crimes against [Palestinian] athletes. It is a disgrace to use sports for this purpose.
2.    If there are Israeli parties who believe sport is a means of spreading values and peace, they should come out against the occupation’s crimes against Palestinian athletes, whether the restriction of their movement, the destruction of their [sports] facilities or the physical elimination of dozens of them…
3.    For a while now the Palestinian sports leadership and community – the Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, the Palestinian Olympic Committee and the Palestinian Football Association – have opposed such activities.
4.    I demand that all individuals and institutions distance themselves from such activities, especially because their recurrence would arouse disgust and aversion towards all members of the [Palestinian] sports community.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 8, 2014, 
and posted on Jibril Rajoub's official Facebook page, Sept. 6, 2014]

Headline: “The National Committee Against Normalization [in Palestine] condemned the ‘Palestinian-Israeli’ football match”

 

“The Executive Office of the National Committee Against Normalization in Palestine published an announcement in which it condemned the participation of children from the West Bank in a football match between Palestinian and Israeli children, held by the Peres Center for Peace at the Gaza envelope (i.e., in Israel near the border with the Gaza Strip), near a Zionist kibbutz, which constitutes normalization [with Israel].
Secretary General of the National Committee [Against Normalization] Jihad Uweida said the committee’s Executive Office was stunned by the timing and location of the match, at a time when the blood of our people and children in the Gaza Strip and of the Martyrs (Shahids) of the sports movements has not yet dried…
The Executive Office of the National Committee [Against Normalization] called on the heads of the Palestinian sports [community] and the Palestinian leadership to discover who is behind this ‘normalization match’ at such a time, and who benefits from holding meetings of this kind.
Uweida emphasized that the National Committee Against Normalization is surprised and astonished that while it is conducting an international campaign for expelling Israeli sports from the international sports system, and after international sports organizations expressed their intention of boycotting this entity [Israel], a Palestinian party would do this entity a free service.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 5, 2014]
Headline: “Fatah in Yatta condemns normalization meetings with Israelis”
“The [Fatah] branch leadership in Yatta held an urgent meeting to discuss the ramifications of the normalization matches held between Palestinian children from the city of Yatta villages and Israeli children, which were supervised by the Peres Center for Peace, and [held] in the presence of former President of the State of Israel Shimon Peres.
The meeting’s participants strongly condemned this event, especially in light of the fact that our people are being subject to the most heinous racist attack, manifested in the murder of the children of Gaza and the West Bank by the most powerful war machine in the region.
[Fatah] branch secretary Dr. Kamal Makhamreh said: ‘The occupation is attempting to improve its criminal image, which was revealed in the murder of our children in Gaza, by holding such normalization meetings, while using weak-minded people, who in turn have exploited the innocence of some children, deceived them and dragged them to this kind of normalization meetings. Therefore, we at Fatah’s Yatta branch, emphasize that this was an individual act, conceived by sick souls that agreed to be humiliated for a handful of money. This act does not represent the nature and character of the residents of the village of Yatta, who are defending their land with resolve in face of the settlement monster, by standing against the herds of settlers who attack their lands on a daily basis.’
Makhamreh urged the residents to supervise their children and distance them from these kinds of activities, which damage our cause.
The Yatta branch spokesperson Muhammad Al-Birawi said the branch committee… will strike with a fist of iron any who allow themselves to tarnish the image of Yatta, the city of Martyrs (Shahids) and prisoners – especially as the [Fatah] movement] has launched a campaign for boycotting Israeli products and will not allow this kind of act, which is being condemned by the people and organizations, to repeat itself. Al-Birawi also said the movement has demanded that the [Palestinian] Security Forces settle the account with these reckless people (i.e., the Palestinian organizers of the event).”
[Ma'an, independent Palestinian news agency, Sept. 4, 2014]
“Palestinian Olympic Committee member Abd Al-Salam Haniyeh denounced the match held between Palestinian and Israeli children. He considered it a crime and an unpatriotic and immoral act.
Haniyeh said these matches are completely unacceptable to the sports community, the Olympic Committee, the Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs and the Palestinian Football Association.
He added: ‘The [Palestinian] organizers of this match betrayed the blood of the children of Gaza and of the Martyrs (Shahid), which has yet to dry a week after the end of the barbaric Israeli aggression, which resulted in the deaths of more than 2,150 Martyrs, the wounding of more than 13,000 people and thousands of homes that were brought down on the heads of their inhabitants.
Haniyeh demanded that Chairman of the Palestinian Football Association Jibril Rajoub immediately interrogate the [Palestinian] organizers of the match, settle the account with them and prosecute them on charges of serious treason against the blood of the Martyrs and violation of the decisions made by the Palestinian sports community’s leadership.
It should be noted that the sports meeting between Palestinian and Israeli youth was held in an Israeli settlement a few kilometers from the Gaza Strip’s border with Israel. The meeting was organized by the Peres Center for Peace.”
