Due To Ramadan, Embassy In Indonesia Celebrates 4th Of July Early

The U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, celebrated our Independence Day on June 4th instead of July 4th, because it falls smack dab in the middle of the ever changing month of Ramadan, and US diplomats decided they did not want to offend. This year Ramadan starts on June 18th. Last year it started June 28th, in 2010 on August 11.

Ambassador to Indonesia Robert O. Blake and US Ambassador to ASEAN Nina Hachigian presided over the festivities, which involved brass band renditions of the Star-Spangled Banner and the Indonesian national anthem, Indonesia Raya.


He also praised Indonesia’s performance as a fully functioning democracy, aiming for further collaboration between the two countries in the years to come.

“The US will continue to support Indonesia in the future through its democratic achievements. Democracy is an American value which we have championed since [the country’s birth in] 1776,” Blake told the crowd during the festivities at his residence near Taman Suropati, Central Jakarta, on Thursday.

U.S. dhimmitude at its very best.

St Louis Black Panther Members Plotted To Bomb Police Station and Kill Officials

The racial divide has grown to a huge chasm, thanks to Barack Obama. So we have this: two members of the hate group the New Black Panther Party plotting a terrorist attack against police and others.

Two men admitted in federal court here Tuesday that they plotted to blow up a police station, vehicles and perhaps other targets, including the St. Louis County prosecutor and Ferguson police chief.

Olajuwon Ali Davis, 23, and Brandon Orlando Baldwin, 24, each pleaded guilty of four explosives and gun charges that will carry seven-year prison terms when they are sentenced Aug. 31.

The pair met in August in Ferguson, during the protests over the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, 18, by then-Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. They started talking about buying guns and organizing protesters to "be like an army" and fight back against police, their plea agreement says.

For weeks as federal agents and police tracked them and their calls and texts, Baldwin and Davis discussed using Baldwin, who was at the time an employee of Cabela's in Hazelwood, to buy guns for felons and others. And Baldwin admitted that he did buy three guns. They also talked about buying bombs. The men mentioned Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch and then-Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson as targets. Neither was harmed. Law enforcement sources and neighbors said the home of both had been closely guarded.

They also intended to bomb an unspecified police station to disrupt communications, according to the plea.

Car bombs.

Baldwin also goes by Brandon Muhammad. Davis as Brother Ali. Note those last names.

South Sudanese Christian Pastors Could Face Death

South Sudan is primarily Christian, North Sudan is mostly hardline Muslim with the ruthless dictator Omar al-Bashir leading the country. Bashir wants the whole of Sudan to be Muslim and follow Sharia law, which is unfortunate for the Christians who live there.

As is the norm in Muslim-majority Sharia enforced countries, Christians are terribly persecuted. Muslims who convert to Christianity face the death penalty for apostasy. Now two Christian pastors from the south could lose their lives because of trumped up charges. The two were charged with spying, and their trial commenced this week,

Yat Michael Ruot and Peter Yein Reith, both Presbyterian pastors from the breakaway Christian nation of South Sudan, are being held by Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Services on charges of undermining the constitution and espionage. Their supporters say their arrest and pending trial is just the latest effort by the militant Islamist government in Khartoum to stamp out Christianity.

The pair also was charged with “inciting organized groups” and “offending Islamic beliefs,” which call for imprisonment.

The trial was set to begin Tuesday, but was postponed to May 31.

Ruot, who is from Juba, the capital city of South Sudan, was arrested Dec. 21 after he delivered a Sunday sermon in Omdurman, a Sudanese city across the Nile from Khartoum. Reith, who, like Ruot, is from the Presbyterian Evangelical Church, was arrested Jan. 11 when he was called in by security services and taken into custody. His supporters believe his arrest was prompted by a letter he wrote to the Office of Religious Affairs in Khartoum inquiring about Ruot.

You might remember this is the same country that sentenced a pregnant Christian woman, Meriam Ibrahim, to death. She was later released, but only after worldwide condemnation.

More here.

Typically, churches have been destroyed in that country, and new ones are not allowed to be built. Muslims in the West are fortunate they do not have to face what Christians are subjected to in Islamic countries.

3 Muslims Charged With Honor Killing Of Iranian Activist In Texas

A Jordanian Muslim immigrant family (a father, mother and son) have been charged with murdering an Iranian woman in 2012 because she helped their daughter convert to Christianity. Where did this happen? Right here in the U.S. Houston. They also have been accused of killing the daughter's husband.

Gelareh Bagherzadeh, a 30-year-old researcher at MD Anderson, was shot to death outside her parents home in the Galleria area.

Ali Irsan, 57, is charged with capital murder in the case. His wife, Shmou Ali Alrawabdeh, and their 21-year-old son, Nasim, are charged with murder. Irsan is also reportedly accused of killing Coty Beavers, his daughter's husband, 10 months after Bagherzadeh was shot to death. Coty Beavers was the twin brother of Bagherzadeh's boyfriend.

The station reports that Bagherzadeh was best friends with Ali Irsan's daughter and he blamed her when the daughter left home and married a Christian, according to investigators.

"Nesreen Irsan would not succumb to her father's complete domination and rule of her. And she left his home without his permission and went into hiding," said Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson.

"These two murders are linked by the belief on the defendant's part that his honor as a father and a Muslim has been violated by his daughter, who defied his rule and married a Christian man," said Anderson.

The Irsan's daughter Nadia is charged with stalking her sister while trying to find out where she and Beavers were living.
Authorities are now taking a second look at the death of another son-in-law Amjad Alidam back in 1999, which was deemed self-defense at the time- but not according to Alidam's wife, and Irsan's daughter Nesreen.

Irsan, Shmou and a daughter have been jailed for a year as part of a fraud investigation.

Fraud. Murder. Such good Muslims.

Danish Imam Preaches Against Interfaith Dialogue

Hajj Saeed, the Imam of the Al-Faruq Mosque in Copenhagen, Denmark preaches against interfaith dialogue- see video link below.

Translation and partial transcript courtesy of Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).

“I will discuss a topic that is both old and new: interfaith dialogue... The Messenger of ‎Allah [Muhammad] lived near Jews in Medina. Did he call for closer relations, harmony ‎and dialogue with them, like the UN and its supporters, who seek to reconcile truth and ‎falsehood? Or did he call on them to worship the one and only Allah? When they [the ‎Jews] broke their treaties [with Muhammad], you know how he treated them. His ‎biography tells of his war against the Jews... According to their view [interfaith dialogue ‎supporters], Jihad has become ‘suicide,’ Jihad has become ‘barbarity,’ Martyrdom-‎seeking has become suicide, and taking [financial] interest is permitted... [Allah] has ‎made laws for us that regulate our relationship with them [Jews and Christians] when ‎we are in their countries. These laws do not include so-called interfaith dialogue. On ‎the contrary, [we must] preach and adhere to the ideological struggle to counter their ‎false arguments, refute their claims and present Islam as an alternative to their bogus ‎cultures, which have led them into the abyss of vileness and corruption, and caused ‎them to deteriorate from humans to beasts.”‎

They should deport his posterior back to wherever he came from.

ISIS Camp In Mexico Miles From U.S. Border?

According to Judicial Watch, sources in Mexico have indicated that there's an ISIS camp in Mexico, just across the porous U.S. border, and that coyotes are helping them enter the U.S. If this is true, it's pretty darn scary.

ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.

The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

During the course of a joint operation last week, Mexican Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss – the sprawling military installation that houses the US Army’s 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation.

Law enforcement and intelligence sources report the area around Anapra is dominated by the Vicente Carrillo Fuentes Cartel (“Juárez Cartel”), La Línea (the enforcement arm of the cartel) and the Barrio Azteca (a gang originally formed in the jails of El Paso). Cartel control of the Anapra area make it an extremely dangerous and hostile operating environment for Mexican Army and Federal Police operations.

Not sure why they don't just bomb the camp, and be done with it.
