A horrific historic and cultural loss. The 850 year old architectural masterpiece is a central monument to the Catholic faith. A spokesman said the entire wooden frame of the cathedral has come down, and the vault of the edifice could be threatened too. ‘Everything is burning, nothing will remain from the frame,’ Notre Dame spokesman Andre Finot told French media.
The 12th-century cathedral is home to incalculable works of art and is one of the world’s most famous tourist attractions. Pictures showed enormous plumes of smoke billowing into the city’s skyline and flames engulfing large sections of the historic building as firefighters struggled to contain the inferno.
According to French newspaper Le Monde, the fire broke out in the attic of the monument before spreading across the roof. Officials in Paris said the fire could be linked to restoration works as the peak of the church is currently undergoing a 6 million-euro ($6.8 million) renovation project.

The internet provides everything you’d want to know about courtships, weddings, married life, but few of them include the instructions on wife-beating. There is a brief but enlightening film, produced by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) and posted on Jihad Watch, of a Muslim sociologist who demonstrates the “proper” wife-beating technique. Of course, the sociologist assures his audience that Islam is merciful, and that the man, the head of the household, should not have to beat his wife every day, and to do so lightly, never to hit her face or head, bruise, break bones or cause blood to flow (m10:12, Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law – ROTT). But the cautionary statement rings hollow when the wife’s bruises will never be seen because she must be covered from head to toe. And, should she become inured to the discipline’s sameness, there are other means of control and punishment available to him, all sanctioned by The Religion of Peace.
When is it necessary to beat one’s wife? The sociologist did posit that there are women who prefer domineering, authoritative, and even violent husbands. For the most part, however, beatings are needed when the wife has disobeyed him and the strict Islamic rules of marriage. She may have refused to wear a hijab (m:2:7-8, ROTT) or the finery he chose for her; or fancied attending school with the hope of one day having a career and earning a wage. She may have wanted to leave the house unaccompanied or without her husband’s permission; she is literally under house arrest.
The Shari’a marriage contract contains her virginity status, the dowry amount, and grants sexual intercourse rights to the male, giving him total control over his wife or wives. Should she refuse his advances, be too ill or too young to have sex, or if she engaged in sex with another man or was raped, he could stop her daily (financial) maintenance. The woman is considered a she-devil, equal to a domestic animal, harmful and with crooked character. Therefore, he may disallow her to sleep in his bed; or lock her in a room, naked, and without food. Should he choose to enact a simple divorce by repeating “I divorce you” three times – she may receive no more than three months’ maintenance and could lose her children older than age seven.
The Muslim husband has the right to accuse her of adultery, in which case he might gather his friends and neighbors together to bury her almost up to her shoulders and stone her to death. The film, The Stoning of Soraya M, portrays the true story of Soraya, in Iran, whose husband Ali convinced their two sons and the townsfolk that she was committing adultery so that he could marry a 14-year-old girl. The Internet has an actual film of a Syrian woman being stoned to death by ISIS. About four women per day are murdered in “stove bursts” in Pakistan, by husbands or in-laws who claim the wives’ scarves caught fire while they were cooking.
We are assured, however, that the discipline of beating, although necessary, is done out of love and once that’s done, life can move on. But from where does this sociologist get the concept of love? Surely, not from the Qur’an, which clearly stipulates that women are inferior and may be taken by force or bought from her parents. There is no Western-style courtship – no dating, no music or dancing under the stars, and no dining in a candlelit café. In fact, there is no courtship whatsoever. Rather, a shari’a marriage is a document, usually signed at the home of the future bride, that grants sexual intercourse rights to the male with complete control over his wife or wives. Revered Muslim theologian, Imam Ghazali (1058-1111) defined, “Marriage is a form of slavery. The woman is the man’s slave, and her duty therefore is absolute obedience to the husband in all that he asks of her person.”
Interestingly, the marriage contract provides four blank spaces to be completed over time. Below the signature of wife number one, there are three more signature lines for future wives, numbers two, three, and four. The realization that there could be three more wives with whom she would share her husband and home immediately negates love and devotion; the religious sanction of polygamy destroys the possibility of fidelity between one man and one woman, while also increasing rivalry, conflict and stress. The message is unambiguous: “You can be replaced.” Not only does the man have the divine right to four wives, but also to “pleasure marriages.” Only he, not she, has the right to such dalliances, and only he, not she, has the right to divorce. He may even rid himself of the four he has and begin anew, with four wives plus “slave wives.”
The Islamic woman is among the poorest and most oppressed in the world, and regardless of her financial station, she is caged for life. She cannot be rescued when beaten and her husband has the right to not provide an explanation to anyone for beating her, for the Prophet has said, “A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife.” Sunan Abu Dawad 11:2142. This must be reassuring.
Muslim societies are based on enslavement – the enslavement of society to the state/ideology and women to men. The Saudi woman is always guilty, even if he breaks her ribs during a beating, and she is so victimized that denial of her situation is her only comfort. Muslim women are imprisoned for sexual crimes done by men, yet Islam insists it honors women. The indemnity for the death or injury of a woman is one-half the indemnity paid for a man. (o4.9, ROTT).
In a Muslim society, the woman’s virginity is the basis of the family’s honor, and honor killings are acts of vengeance executed by likeminded family members against the female family member, for reasons such as becoming “too westernized,” refusing an arranged marriage, being the victim of a sexual assault, seeking a divorce, or (allegedly) committing adultery. The mere perception that a woman has behaved in a “dishonorable” way is sufficient reason for murder; methods include stoning, stabbing, beating, mutilation, burning, beheading, hanging, throat slashing, lethal acid attacks, shooting and strangulation. Women’s advocacy groups suspect that more than 20,000 women are killed worldwide each year. The UK recorded 2,823 such crimes in 2010.
Sex for the male in Islam is a plenteous buffet of alternatives, and he need never be indicted for adultery, pederasty, infant or youth pedophilia, rape, or honor killings. He even has permission to engage in sex with his wife’s cadaver within seven hours of her death. During a televised show in Egypt, Professor Sheikh Sabri Abdul Raeuf, of the Islamic world’s most prestigious madrasa, was asked if it is permissible for a husband to penetrate his wife after death (necrophilia). He replied, “It is not favorable in Islam; however Islamic law considers it as halal,” it is permissible, not a crime or sin deserving of punishment in the here or hereafter.
Men, particularly “courageous” jihadis, are rewarded with sex with perpetually exquisite virgin women, so that women are not just in competition and threatened by other women (wives) on earth, but also by supermodels in the afterlife. The Religion of Peace offers no peace to women at any time – not in infancy, not when they are genitally mutilated in childhood or married off against their will, not in their adulthood, and not even after their death. We must never allow Shari’a law to overtake our own American laws.

This is infuriating…. Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda is charged with attempted homicide after throwing a random five-year-old boy from the third level of the Mall of America. How does Reuters present the story:
The Minnesota Mall of America is well known for danger and violence due to its proximity to a large Muslim population near Minneapolis. However, it is not politically correct to talk about it openly…. thus Reuters pulls out the cultural Marxist headline transcriber. Ridiculous.
[Reuters] […] The suspect, Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, who is from the area, was charged with attempted homicide, police said in a statement.
“At this time we do not believe there is a relationship between the suspect and the child or the family of the child, and we are actively investigating as to why this incident occurred,” Potts said at a briefing just outside the mall.
Police received an initial report at 10:17 a.m. saying a child had fallen from the third level of the mall, but witnesses reported the child was pushed or thrown by a man, Potts said. (read more)

The Somalian pirates have once again sailed into North American waters. But instead of kidnapping coastal dwellers for slavery or taking bounty to enhance their wealth, from the 16th century onwards (and again in the 2000s), they are here to continue the process of taking land, America from Americans for Islam and Israel from the Jews for the self-proclaimed “Palestinians.” For centuries, the legacy of Muhammad’s raids has been the acquisition of land and booty/wealth (Maal-e-Ghanimat), gizya (extortion/tax) from the conquered people, and modern-day welfare, such as the annual £25,000 ($33,009) received by Islamic preacher Anjem Choudary in Britain, who urges other “jihad seekers” do the same.
Salafi scholar Abu Ishak al Huweini lamented, “If only we can conduct a jihadist invasion at least once a year or, if possible, twice or three times, then many people on Earth would become Muslim.” He added that if they could not confiscate the wealth, they would kill the men and kidnap and enslave their women and children. American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki instructed that the disbelievers’ property is never rightfully theirs, and may be forcefully “retaken” for Islam, a belief system that supports the Islamic right to anything they want – Europe, America, and Israel, home to the Jews for more than 3,000 years. Islamists continue to disregard the Jewish kingdoms, sovereign Jewish state, and continuous Jewish presence in the land, Biblically documented and archaeologically verified.
It was therefore not surprising, except to those who failed to notice the sharia-compliant hijab and oath of office sworn to Allah on the Qur’an, that Somalian-born Ilhan Omar (D-MN) can so boldly deny Israel’s historic and legal rights to exist. And if she can make headway in Congress while also undermining the American government and people’s inalienable rights, so much the better. Her recent proposal, bound to be superseded by yet another jab before this goes to print, was, “We must acknowledge that [Israel] is also the historical homeland of Palestinians.” That is not the case. There is absolutely no evidence of a Palestinian history before 1967 AD! Those who assumed this false identity were the Egyptian, Iraqi, Lebanese, Jordanian and Syrian squatters who went in search of work in the flourishing Israel and who were ill-advised to vacate the land by the invading Arab armies, expecting to return after the Jews were annihilated. They were to be disappointed. Weakened and isolated as pawns in Gaza, Judea and Samaria, they began an unceasing political, psychological, and propagandist war of conquest in the court of world opinion. While such attempts at land acquisition may differ from country to country – from Africa, India and the Middle East, to Europe, Australasia and America – let us not delude ourselves into thinking they’ve suddenly amended their 1400-year-old ideology. They have not.
The Four Stages of Islamic conquest have been delineated, and it might be prudent to take a moment to review them now, as each stage reveals the clear pattern of their strategy. The list unmistakably shows that we Americans are deeply entrenched in Stage #2, identified as the Consolidation of Power, including, for our purposes here, revisionist efforts to Islamize history – with a foothold into Stage #3.
Ilhan Omar has been dedicated to criticizing Israel and attempting to inspire compassion for Palestinians who, she suggests, are suffering the same “inhumanity and suffering” seen in the Somalian civil war. Certainly not, as those “unspeakable horrors” are Muslim against Muslim. Palestinians have eschewed peace, consistently rebuffing Israel’s every offer of permanent peace, even when they were offered 97% of the land they wanted. Rather, they bind their children in explosives, teach their children to hurl missiles and incendiary balloons, and wield a sword for beheading, instead of engaging in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness enjoyed by Israelis. Palestinian suffering is self-imposed.
Islam is responsible for 34,751 terrorist attacks since 9/11, and 25 attacks (149 killed) in 12 countries during one week in March, 2019 alone. There is not a shred of evidence that Palestinians could live peacefully next to Israel, since their children are immersed and engaged in jihad beginning with their toddlerhood.
Omar further rued, “Without a state, the Palestinian people live in a state of permanent refugeehood and displacement,” yet it is their own brethren and leadership who placed and kept them in refugee status for Western sympathy, they who have refused statehood and peace, they who continue to wage war against Israel, they who sorely mistreat even their own, particularly girls and women. They show no sign of interest in reverting to democracy where even their own people might live harmoniously. The threat against regional peace comes from those who carry out the will of Allah and Mohammed, as well as from the diminutive, ungracious and hostile Omar, who thinks nothing of denigrating the President of the one country that granted her refuge and comfort, America. And so we have Stage #3: Open War with Leadership and Culture, which reflects on the combined efforts of Islamists and the left.
The characteristics of Stage 3 are open violence to impose sharia and associated cultural restrictions; rejection of the host government; subjugation of other religions and customs. Some are already in effect:
- Intentional efforts to undermine the host government and culture. Academia continues Islamic teaching/antisemitism, removing our history, students whitewashed. Government positions infiltrated; oath-taking changes; deliberate acts to change our system of representation, to pack the supreme court, to encourage alien invasion to ensure an election outcome; to demoralize our president’s efforts to keep the country safe; to destroy our energy independence; to increase taxation and restrictions against companies and individuals. Work to disarm and diminish our population, by birth control, deteriorating healthcare, and euthanasia.
- Acts of barbarity to intimidate citizens and foster fear and submission. Conservatives shut down and attacked for political differences, MAGA hats; physical attacks against Jews. Violence to property – stores, historic monuments, burning cars.
- Open and covert efforts to cause economic collapse of the society. School personnel and Muslim Student Associations (MSA) engaged in boycotts against Israel; working to increase taxes and regulations; the economically devastating Green New Deal. Flooding our nation with dependent non-productive aliens; continued socialized medicine.
- All opposition is challenged and either eradicated or silenced. The FBI’s manuals purged of all Islamic references, thwarting police forces; information withheld by the media; visiting speakers denied on campuses; Islamic tea party outreaches to convince their religions are alike.
- Rejection and defiance of host society secular laws or culture. Pockets of Muslim residents ruled by shari’a; demanding food and prayer accommodations to shari’a.
- Destruction of churches, synagogues and other non-Muslim institutions. Desecration of synagogues and churches; defilement of cemetery headstones. Historic monuments toppled.
- Women are restricted further in accordance with Shari’a law. Muslim patrol cars now evident on the streets in some cities, to ensure that shari’a is followed, including women’s dress.
Stage #3 also includes removing influential personalities from the media (Glenn Beck, Judge Jeanine Pirro). Islamic militias formed for widespread ethnic cleansing; large groups of able-bodied men assembled in any of the more than 2,000 mosques, of which 80% (1700) are known to be preaching hate and violence against Jews, serving as jihadist recruitment and training centers – and as armories. Also listed are large-scale population destruction, assassinations, bombings; usurpation of government’s political power, imposition of shari’a, mass execution of Muslim intellectuals who do not support Islamization.
Thomas Jefferson, the first to encounter the Somalian pirates, said, “It is our duty still to endeavor to avoid war. But if it shall actually take pace, no matter by whom brought on, we must defend ourselves. If our house be on fire, without inquiring whether it was fired from within or without, we must try to extinguish it.”
Later generations will not thank us for letting the fire take hold.
A crazed Senegalese migrant kidnapped a bus loaded with 51 middle-school-aged students near Milan Italy. The suspect attempted to burn the bus with the students inside, but fortunately police were able to rescue the children as the fire started.
One of the children was able to hide their cell phone and call for help. An alarming story and rescue that was caught on video by a passing motorist.
(Via Daily Mail) A Senegalese man abducted 51 children when he hijacked an Italian school bus and set the vehicle alight in a protest over migrant deaths in the Mediterranean.
Ousseynou Sy, originally Senegalese but with Italian citizenship, stopped the bus he was driving, with two classes of high school students on board.
He was said to have ordered the children’s hands to be bound and threatened to kill them and himself during the drive, before setting the vehicle on fire when he was stopped by a police blockade today.
Officers broke the glass in the back door of the bus and got all the passengers to safety without serious injury before the flames destroyed the vehicle, authorities said.
As he was apprehended, the driver said he was protesting migrant deaths in the Mediterranean, Commander Luca De Marchis told Sky TG24. (read more)

(DOJ-NSD ) A federal grand jury sitting in Albuquerque, New Mexico returned a superseding indictment on March 13 charging Jany Leveille, 36, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Hujrah Wahhaj, 38, Subhanah Wahhaj, 36, and Lucas Morton, 41, with federal offenses related to terrorism, kidnapping and firearms violations.
All of the defendants are currently in custody awaiting trial.
The announcement was made by Assistant Attorney General John C. Demers for the National Security Division, U.S. Attorney John C. Anderson for the District of New Mexico, Assistant Director Michael McGarrity of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division and Special Agent in Charge James Langenberg of the FBI’s Albuquerque Field Office.
These defendants were previously charged by indictment on Sept. 11, 2018, with a conspiracy relating to the possession of firearms and ammunition by an alien illegally and unlawfully in the United States. The original indictment also charged Leveille with possessing firearms and ammunition as an alien illegally and unlawfully in the United States.
The superseding indictment charges all of the defendants with participating in a conspiracy from October 2017 to August 2018 to provide material support and resources, including currency, training, weapons, and personnel, knowing and intending that they were to be used in preparation for and in carrying out attacks to kill officers and employees of the United States, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2339A.
“The indictment alleges that the defendants conspired to provide material support in preparation for violent attacks against federal law enforcement officers and members of the military,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers. “Advancing beliefs through terror and violence has no place in America, and the National Security Division continues to make protecting against terrorism its top priority.”
“The superseding indictment alleges a conspiracy to stage deadly attacks on American soil,” said U.S. Attorney John C. Anderson. “These allegations remind us of the dangers of terrorism that continue to confront our nation, and the allegation concerning the death of a young child only underscores the importance of prompt and effective intervention by law enforcement. I commend the FBI, DHS, ATF, Taos County Sheriff’s Office, and the Eighth Judicial District Attorney’s Office for their ongoing diligence and outstanding work in identifying and disabling imminent threats of targeted violence. ”
“The defendants in this case allegedly were preparing for deadly attacks and their targets included law enforcement and military personnel, the very people who are committed to protecting all of us,” said Assistant Director McGarrity. “We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to uncover and put a stop to acts of terrorism.”
As alleged in the superseding indictment, these defendants conspired to provide material support in preparation for violent attacks against officers and employees of the United States. According to the superseding indictment, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and Hujrah Wahhaj gathered firearms and ammunition, and all of the defendants transported people, firearms, and ammunition across state lines and constructed a training compound where they stored firearms and ammunition. The superseding indictment further alleges that Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and Morton constructed and maintained a firing range at the compound where they engaged in firearms and tactical training for other compound occupants, and that Leveille and Morton attempted to recruit others to their cause.
