Marine Le Pen bravely refused to wear headscarf at Lebanese mufti's HQ

The lady candidate for French presidency did something the female dhimmis in Sweden wouldn't do: she refused to wear a hijab during a visit to a Lebanese mufti, and ideally cancelled the meeting with him too:
French far-right National Front presidential candidate Marine Le Pen canceled a meeting on Tuesday with Lebanon's grand mufti, its top cleric for Sunni Muslims, after refusing to wear a headscarf for the encounter.

Le Pen, among the frontrunners for the presidency, is using a two-day visit to Lebanon to bolster her foreign policy credentials nine weeks from the April 23 first round, and may be partly targeting potential Franco-Lebanese votes.

Many Lebanese fled to France, Lebanon's former colonial power, during their country's 1975-1990 civil war and became French citizens.

After meeting Christian President Michel Aoun - her first public handshake with a head of state - and Sunni Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri on Monday, she had been scheduled to meet the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian

He heads the Dar al-Fatwa, the top religious authority for Sunni Muslims in the multireligious country.

"I met the grand mufti of Al-Azhar," she told reporters, referring to a visit in 2015 to Cairo's 1,000-year-old center of Islamic learning. "The highest Sunni authority didn't have this requirement, but it doesn't matter.

"You can pass on my respects to the grand mufti, but I will not cover myself up," she said.

The cleric's press office said Le Pen's aides had been informed beforehand that a headscarf was required for the meeting and had been "surprised by her refusal".
Oh, sure, I'll bet they were surprised. It's more likely they were enraged underneath she wouldn't kowtow to their demands she demean herself and grovel before the mufti. And she shouldn't adhere to a dress code imposed by Haredi extremists like Satmar either. Whatever her motivations for visiting that mufti, she did the right thing by not meeting him in the end. If he demanded women not be themselves, then he doesn't deserve the dignity of a visit by a politician from a civilized society. Le Pen was brave to refuse, and did the right thing not to grovel.

Islamofascist charged with plotting to bomb buses in TA for the cause of ISIS

Another local Muslim's been arrested and charged with betrayal of the state for the sake of ISIS:
An Arab Israeli man was charged with planning terror attacks on behalf of the Islamic State group, including bus bombings directed against IDF soldiers, according to an indictment filed against him on Monday. He also allegedly distribute information to IS members on how to create a deadly nerve gas.

The suspect, Anas Haj Yihya, was charged in a Tel Aviv court with belonging to a terrorist organization and with multiple counts of contact with a foreign agent.

In May, one of Yihya’s Islamic State contacts, Muhammad Abdel Rawi, told him to carry out attacks against soldiers, including blowing up a bus filled with soldiers on central Tel Aviv’s Dizengoff Street, which he agreed to, according to the charge sheet.

Three months later, Yihya apparently attempted to create an explosive device, asking a gardener to get him fertilizer, but his request was denied, according to the indictment.

Yihya also allegedly used the Telegram messaging application to distribute information to IS members on how to create sarin gas, a deadly nerve agent, how to manufacture explosive belts and bombs with cellphone triggers, and which poisons can be added to explosives in order to make them more lethal.
Utterly repulsive. He should be locked up and the key thrown away.

A hopefully better era in Israeli-USA relations has begun

After the Israeli prime minister had his meeting with Donald Trump, he emerged more positively than before (Hat tip: Breitbart):
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday hailed the success of his recent talks with US President Donald Trump, calling last week’s trip to the United States he start of “a new day” in Israel’s relations with its American ally.

“The alliance between Israel and the US has always been steadfast but, I told them there and also here in Jerusalem: This alliance has become even stronger,” Netanyahu said at his first cabinet meeting since returning to Israel on Friday.

Citing his warm personal connection with Trump as well as “the common view about the dangers and opportunities in the Middle East,” Netanyahu said that during his ‘historic visit,” he and the president saw “eye to eye” on a range of issues facing the region, specifically noting the threat posed by Iranian aggression.
I'd strongly advise taking note of Sweden's de facto support for Iran's hostility too. Any foreign country that goes to kneel before their mullahs is only furthering that aggressive attitude of theirs, and Sweden should be ashamed of themselves for groveling before Rouhani as they did the other week.

All that aside, it's good to see the Netanyahu/Trump meeting went over well, and let's hope it leads to forming an effective alliance in the war against jihadism.

The pope undermines the war on terrorism

Pope Francis is doing a terrible disservice to fellow Christians, Jews, and even Buddhists, if that matters, by acting as though there's no such thing as a bad religion:
In an impassioned address Friday, Pope Francis denied the existence of Islamic terrorism, while simultaneously asserting that “the ecological crisis is real.”

“Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist,” Francis said in his speech to a world meeting of populist movements.

What he apparently meant is that not all Christians are terrorists and not all Muslims are terrorists—a fact evident to all—yet his words also seemed to suggest that no specifically Islamic form of terrorism exists in the world, an assertion that stands in stark contradiction to established fact.
What he stated was definitely awkward at worst, and does nothing to help combat the rising persecution of Christians either, if he won't condemn the Koranic verses that condone jihadism. And he's demonstrated perfectly why there's some people out there who're alienated from Christianity, because "leaders" like himself won't defend their followers properly.

And what's the big deal about ecology? It sounds like he buys into the whole global warming nonsense, which is trivial and just used to divert attention from more serious issues he doesn't want to confront convincingly.

IS considers MSM a powerful weapon

A new report warns that the Islamic State wants to conquer the mainstream press as much as they do the globe:
Islamic State terrorists consider the mainstream media to be “more important than military jihad” with a “far-reaching” power that exceeds even the “most powerful bombs,” reports the London-based International Center for the Study of Radicalization and Political Violence (ICSR).

The Islamic State jihadists value the mainstream media because it helps them to produce and disseminate propaganda to a vast audience.

“Weeks after its capture of Mosul in 2014, the Islamic State set about transforming its strategic trajectory. Through an avalanche of media products, it worked to aggressively insert itself into the global public discourse and, in turn, popularize its brand, polarize adversary populations and drive rivals into the ideological side-lines,” notes ICSR.
Read the rest. This is very serious and dangerous, what the IS is working on. Especially when the MSM demonstrates they're fully compliant with the wishes of the Islamofascists.

Armed mobs in Paris are furthering inner city jihad

Breitbart's London division reports that the riots in Paris are getting worse. It's clear the military will have to be called in, but so far, it looks like Francois Hollande wants to allow the country to collapse into pure hell, and that's disgusting.

Ikea follows up their dhimmitude with kowtowing to Haredi beliefs in censorship of women's imagery

Ikea, the Swedish furniture company founded by a nazi collaborator, Ingvar Kamprad, was criticized 5 years ago for publishing catalogs for Muslim countries that obliterated female imagery. Now, they've followed up this pathetic conduct by publishing a similar catalog for censorship-advocating Haredi customers:
The IKEA furniture and homewares store has issued a special version of its catalogue for the ultra-Orthodox sector, featuring challah boards, cupboards with black and white clothes and, most notable, no women.

The absence of women from haredi newspapers, websites, and other forms of media has become a well known and now almost unremarkable phenomenon, while catalogues in haredi cities and neighborhoods have also been scrubbed clean of any images of women in recent years.

But this week, residents of haredi communities found a haredi version of the new IKEA catalogue in their mail boxes, featuring book cases full of volumes of the Talmud and Bible, display cases featuring Shabbat candlesticks, tables set for the Sabbath meal, and closets filled with white shirts and black suits, the standard haredi garb.

This special sectoral catalogue also includes pictures of haredi men and boys with long curly peot, or side-locks, black velvet yarmulkes and tzitzit, studying religious texts, and posing in various scenes of familial life.

Unlike the standard IKEA catalogue however, no daughters, sisters or mothers accompany those fathers and sons.

IKEA said in response to the story that “in response to requests we received, we decided to launch a catalogue that allows the religious and haredi community to enjoy looking at the products and solutions that IKEA offers, and to do so in accordance with their lifestyles.”
Anybody who supports such censorious approaches and/or blandly tolerates the same is leading a socialist lifestyle, especially if they're not working or serving in the military, and just living on welfare. Even if Haredis aren't known for the kind of evil that Islamofascists are, this is still very egregious and only appeases the really bad apples like Satmar tribalists. This is supposed to be consumer furniture advertising, not a synagogue, and what they're doing is basically politicizing their business conduct.

Personally, I'd rather not buy anything from Ikea because they're not all that different today than they were at the time Kamprad originally founded them, and their whole approach to marketing practically demonstrates what's wrong with them overall - they're jelly-spined and will do anything for money.

Update: USA Today says they've gotten some condemnation for their kowtowing:
Ikea’s retail manager for Israel, Shuky Koblenz, expressed regret over the women-less publication.

“We realize that people are upset about this and that the publication does not live up to what IKEA stands for and we apologize for this,” he said in a statement sent to RNS. “We will make sure that future publications will reflect what IKEA stands for and at the same time show respect for Haredi community.”
If that means they're going to respect their "right" to be sexist, they're not apologizing at all. And I don't want to buy products from a company founded by a man as repellent as Kamprad is anyway.

UCLA bans "islamophobic" book from alleged free speech event

While the Hill has sent telling signs they're not very strong on free speech themselves, they were willing to publish an article by Elan Journo, who had a book barred from a potentially farcical event the UCLA was holding (Hat tip: Jihad Watch):
At UCLA Law School last week, a squad of student “thought police” tried to ban my book, Failing to Confront Islamic Totalitarianism: From George W. Bush to Barack Obama and Beyond. They don’t want you to know the book even exists, let alone what’s inside it. And the UCLA administration enabled them. This ominous episode underlines how students are learning to be contemptuous of intellectual freedom.
Read more about how obnoxiously the students who didn't want his book to be there acted. In fact, note how clear it is they were basically fine with Bush proving as much a failure in his time as Obama later was.

Another airline flight made miserable by Haredi troublemakers

An EasyJet flight from Tel Aviv to Luton was turned into utter sickness by Haredis who I'm sure intended to give Orthodox Judaism as bad a name as they could. And in Britain, no less:
Police boarded an easyJet flight from Tel Aviv when it arrived in Luton on Monday to prevent a possible “breach of the peace” by a group of strictly Orthodox Jewish men.

One angry passenger who spoke to the JC said it was “absolute bedlam” on the plane. No arrests were made.
Why do I get the feeling they were let off easy because they were Haredis? If they weren't, I've got a hunch the story would be different.
Tempers are said to have flared prior to the departure of Monday’s 2.55pm flight from Israel, when a group of Charedi men refused to take their seats next to female passengers – apparently on religious grounds.

The flight was full, but the men refused to listen to stewards’ requests to take their seats so the plane could take off.

Eventually, after a 15 minute stand-off, where the men were said to have blocked the aisles, some of the female passengers offered to move from their seats in order for the men to agree to sit down.

The passenger told the JC: “A group of around 10 ultra-Orthodox men caused absolute bedlam on the flight.

"It was infuriating to witness both for passengers and for the stewards, who tried but failed to control them.
Why didn't they call authorities in Israel before taking off? Security should have thrown them off the flight long before. And I have a hunch it was all deliberate.
“When some of the women got up and moved seats to ensure that the plane got to take off, some of these men never even thought about saying ‘thank you’.
Just an example of how ungrateful some of these insular disgraces can be.
“Then after the plane took off one male plugged his phone into the control panel above the stewards’ area.”

This caused the exit lights to come on, the passenger said.

“As the exit lights went on, some of the stewards looked as though they were really quite panicked.

“One cabin crew member eventually went over to the man and demanded he take his mobile and said he was responsible for a possible compromise of safety.”
And this demonstrates how little they care about other people's safety. But the worst part is the failure by police to arrest them:
"Officers attended and escorted the men off the flight preventing a breach of the peace. No offences were found to have been committed.”
Excuse me? They acted disorderly, risked a safety standard, irritated the passengers and all they could do was let them off? Again, I'm sure if these weren't Haredis they wouldn't have been so lenient. But the truly corrosive effect is what this'll do to public opinion in Britain, as now a negative view of Orthodox Judaism as a whole could be enforced by this terrible incident. Any Orthodox adherent who doesn't publicly condemn this is only inviting more harm to a religion they presumably want to uphold as a positive role model.
