ISIS Bans the Burqa Due to Terrorism

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I have never been a fan of the burqa – the black shroud, or long, flowing garment that covers entirely the Islamic woman from head to toe. Often the only things that can be seen are the eyes, and frequently not even them.

Imagine having to deal with 90° to over 100° heat – being forced to don a full body burqa, made entirely of black fabric during the summer we just experienced. Seems like torture.

To me, it is a freedom thing. Within reason, one should be able to wear whatever one wants. But then there is the real world threat of terrorism. Because of these threats, France, Belgium and the Netherlands have already banned the wearing of the burqa and niqab in public places and violators can face fines and even jail time.

It’s fascinating to see these anything-goes, overly tolerant European nations begin to crack down on their own liberal policies. The Europeans have a reputation of tolerance and succumbing to political correctness – which is how they ended with the mess they are currently in – allowing so many unvetted Muslims into their countries. read more

Europe Is Paying for the Mistakes of the Past

by: the Common Constitutionalist

We are well aware of the many ISIS or ISIS inspired attacks throughout Europe. It is interesting that since the rise of ISIS, these attacks appeared directed at the European infidels and not just the long-proclaimed enemy of Islam – Israel.

Not that there are continuing attacks on the Jewish state – there are as there have always been. But recently they have taken a backseat to the mass carnage inflicted upon Europe and the United States by the Islamic State.

But why? Hasn’t it always been the number one cause of Muslims to avenge the oppression of the poor displaced Palestinians and drive the Jews out of Israel and into the sea? Has that not been the clarion call of all Muslims since 1948?

Heck, even individual European nations as well as the EU have, for want of a better term, conspired with Muslim nations and terrorist organizations to take down Israel.

For decades, “Europe had a cushy arrangement – all the world’s jihadists were so fixated on Israel that they were willing to overlook long-standing hatreds against ‘Crusader’ Europe, as long as Europe would help them wage war on Israel.” read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive

Will ISIS Use Dirty Bomb to Blackmail?

Who doesn’t love the current price of a gallon of gas? I was driving in to my office recently and noticed more than one fuel station posting gas at $1.55 per gallon. When George W. Bush first took office in 2001, the average price of a gallon was $1.55.

Remember back in 2012, during a debate with Mitt Romney Obama said: “When I took office, the price of gasoline was $1.80, $1.86. Why is that? Because the economy was on the verge of collapse.” So what does it tell us about the present Obama economy that gas prices are now some 30 cents lower than 2009 and in free fall? Sure, it’s great for us consumers – we’re saving a fortune on gas and heating oil – but it’s not great for our nation or the world economy. read more

A Jihadist Storm May Be Blowing Our Way

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Surprise, surprise. MoveOn.org has begun another campaign that could potentially damage our country. Pretty much everything they do is damaging in one way or another, but this damage could have disastrous consequences.

In a blast email I received, they begin with the following:

“Here’s the situation: Millions of families have fled terrorism and their government’s bombs, only to face the impossible choice between trying to survive the winter in tents in refugee camps, or making the often lethal trip to Europe. At present, the United States only plans to welcome 10,000 Syrian refugees next year.”

So what do they want of the useful idiots who believe in the MoveOn movement? Well, as usual, they want money. But they also want the useful idiots to contact their Senators and ask (more like demand – we know the left never asks for anything) that they co-sponsor Bill 2145, “the Middle East Refugee Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act.”

The Act would provide an extra $1 billion in emergency money to “allow funding for the resettlement of up to 100,000 refugees over two years.”  read more

Gun Free Europe is Arming Up

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The Middle East is admittedly a mess. It has been a mess for a while. There has been some sort of war going on over there for decades. However, at least for the time being, the advance of ISIS, or the Islamic State, appears to have been halted.

Yet still, thousands more “refugees” arrive in Europe everyday to escape the fighting. But with no evident uptick in violence, why are these “refugees” still streaming into the west?

There has been armed conflict and war in that region of the world for quite a long time. Why now is there this overwhelming flood of these “refugees?” And why travel all the way to Western Europe? Why not go to Russia, or any of the “Stan” countries that aren’t currently at war or under some sort of siege? Heck, they are a least closer.

For the answers, one only need recall the very words said to us all by the leader of the new Islamic State, the self-appointed Caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He said from the beginning that ISIS could never hope to defeat the west, Europe in particular, militarily, in a straight up fight.

His plan all along has been to overrun the European Union and conquer it from within. His plan, it seems, is working like a charm. In their effort to show the world how truly enlightened and tolerant a society Western Europe is, their countries’ marshmallowy, myopic, passivist leaders are falling right into Baghdadi’s trap.

Europe has accepted one and all, indiscriminately allowing anyone who is able to walk, ride or float into their countries. And amongst the “refugees” are thousands of ISIS jihadists.

And more than any other to date, their destination has been Germany. Many have said, me included, that this is merely due to the generous German welfare system. To be sure, that is a big incentive.

But there are other reasons Germany is the destination of choice for al-Baghdadi’s jihadists. Germany is the most powerful, economically, of all the E.U. nations. Therefore, by default, it is the de facto head of the Union. Baghdadi knows that in order to conquer Europe, they must first overwhelm its strongest member. Also, Germany is one of the least defended European countries. read more

ISIS Plans Mass Genocide

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Evidently ISIS plans to wipe us all out, starting with those in the Middle East, those of other religions, all atheists and those who don’t subscribe to their particular brand of Islam.

At least that’s what a German reporter claims. He was permitted to be embedded in the Islamic State for 10 fun-filled days. Well, that must have been more fun than a barrel of severed heads.

According to 74 year old reporter Jurgen Todenhofer, ISIS is deadly serious and truly believes they can actually win the fight against the infidels. Todenhofer told ABC News that “The IS fighters are much smarter and more dangerous than our leaders believe. In the Islam State, there is an almost palpable enthusiasm and confidence of victory, which I have not seen in many war zones.” He added: “They are extremely brutal. I’m talking about the strategy of religious cleansing. They are talking about 500 million people who have to die.”

And why wouldn’t they be extremely confident, knowing that Western politicians lack the courage and will to do what is truly necessary to stop them. read more

Bringing up Baby … Jihadists

by: the Common Constitutionalist

We’ve all heard the saying: “There are no bad children – only bad parents”. I would add bad teachers and other role models such as religious leaders, coaches, sports figures and Hollywood dopes who can also adversely influence children.

For example; seeing a kid who constantly uses foul language, has a quick temper or bullies others – one usually only has to look to the parents or other “role models” to find they’ve “learned” the behavior.

This is what I thought of as I saw a disturbing image last week. It was a tweet of a child, no more than five or six years old, holding a doll up by the hair. The doll was dressed in an orange jumpsuit and the little boy was dressed in a black balaclava with a black ski mask covering his face. He was holding up the doll in his right hand and in his small left hand was a large knife. Behind him was the black flag of the Islamic State. read more

ISIS Must Be Exterminated

by: the Common Constitutionalist

So much for the Islamic creed of dealing with a conquered people. It used to be that the conquered had three choices – convert to Islam, pay a hefty tribute and live as a second-class citizen, or die.

Now it seems, at least for the Islamic State, the second option is off the table, which leaves two bad choices – convert or die. Not much of a choice, because conversion means not only Islam as your chosen faith, but radicalized Islam and Sharia law.

But that’s the fate of the Yazidis. When their villages were overrun by ISIS barbarians, those who couldn’t or didn’t escape have been forced to surrender to the Caliphate and presented with the choice of convert or die.

The Islamic State released a video showing hundreds of Yazidi men taking part in a forced “conversion” ceremony.

MailOnline reports that one of the ISIS fighters said: “What has been said is the opposite of reality”, meaning the Yazidis weren’t forced to convert and they haven’t been abused. He (the fighter) claims that, “Men, women and children had converted and I was with them and they are happy with their conversions. We advise the Yazidis to come down from the mountain and convert.”

Yes, I’m sure the Yazidi men are saying to one another, “Wow – this is great. Why didn’t we do this long ago? Wait… where did all our women go? Oh that’s right – they were all taken to serve as concubines for our new benevolent rulers. We’re cool with that.” read more

More From the Peaceful Islamic State

by: the Common Constitutionalist

ISIS, the Islamic State, is on the move – expanding its territory in both Syria and Iraq. Unlike their shadowy predecessors, this new breed of terrorist is actually widely promoting their cause, taking to Twitter and YouTube to spread their propaganda.

Vice News has put together a series of videos cataloging the views, ideology and methods of the Islamic State. It begins with one of the “Warriors of Allah” explaining that “Sharia must be the only law and that it [Sharia] can only be established with weapons”, as he slaps his AK-47.

The Islamic State is not like other terrorist organizations. They really do fancy themselves an actual autonomous kingdom. They even have their own “press officer”, Abu Mosa, who escorted the Vice News crew to different locales within their newly founded kingdom.

In the first of the video series, Abu Mosa has a statement for America. As he fiddles with his weapon Mosa says: “I say to America, that the Islamic Caliphate has been established. And we will not stop. Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead, send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq. We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.” read more

No More Apologies for Islam

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Time for a get real moment about radical Islam, and why anyone would support them.

Everywhere they go, they leave nothing but destruction and death behind.

They persecute and murder Christians just because there Christian – just because they’re different, but they whine at anyone who speaks out about their “sacred” practices. As if we have no right or standing to do so.

Oh, and they want exterminate all Jews.

They have this dumb-ass rule about women having to remain completely covered.

You can see it practically everywhere you go – even here in New England. I was witness to the practice just recently. It’s summer – it’s hot – 90 degrees plus with 80% humidity. A Muslim man is taking a walk with his son. They are dressed in shorts, tank tops and flip-flops. Beside them is who I assume to be the man’s wife, covered from head to tow in black. Her headscarf was a Niqab. The only things visible were her eyes.

How completely absurd! The practice of women covering up is supposed to be rooted in some sort of religious “modesty” code or something – that women should only be seen by their husbands. Bullcrap, I say. It’s just another way for Muslim men to manifest power over women, who have virtually no rights.

And don’t tell me the women don’t mind dressing that way, as the males dress down to practically nothing in the hot summer sun. read more
