HOAX ON HUFFINGTON POST EXPOSES THE LEFT'S ULTIMATE PLAN TO DISEMPOWER WHITE AMERICANS - The black on white violence in the USA, and the anti-white genocide in South Africa, all completely ignored by the media

Disclaimer:  Your blogger is not a 'white male' but a female with an olive complexion, and with family roots in the Mediterranean.
  • For years there has been an ongoing black-on-white campaign of violent assaults in the USA - fully ignored by the mainstream media because it does not fit their narrative of black victimization.
  • Now the verbal war on whites is ramping up on mainstream media. 
  • Calls for the murder of  whites are found "not to violate ethical standards" at sites such as Facebook and Twitter.   Anti-white incitement and hate are becoming increasingly acceptable.
  • There is a disturbing political alliance of the left, Islam, black nationalism, and radical feminism - all of which have one goal in common: the undermining and eventual dismantlement of western society and values.
  • The rationale seems to be that if in spite of all efforts at forced diversity, affirmative action, and other policies that ignore personal merit, non-whites are still trailing, then whites, men, and overachieving groups such as Jews and Chinese must be forcibly removed from the playing field.
  • Anti-white discrimination is applied from the very top with mandatory affirmative action for non-white admissions to colleges and the workplace.
  • While mere criticism of Obama is still condemned as "racist," now it is acceptable to call for the murder of president Trump, and even the murder of whites for being white. 
  • While the left characterizes Trump supporters as "Nazis" - it is the leftist rhetoric that increasingly reflects Nazi ideology  - with the perpetrators being leftists and non-whites.
  • Anti-white rhetoric is ramping up on campuses across the nation.
  • Colleges are now places where whiteness is regarded as an ingrained flaw.  White students are asked to apologize for their color and the history of their race.
  • The war against whites is particularly vicious when it targets white males.  Masculinity is now characterized as "toxic" - and another ingrained flaw for which white male college students are expected to apologize.
  • The following story of a hoax perpetrated on the liberal Huffington Post painfully illustrates the degree to which American society is fragmenting along race and gender lines.
  • It also exposes the alarming extremes in anti-white racism and anti-straight-male bias which are now becoming acceptable in schools and media.
  • When a man posing as a South African radical feminist submitted an article demanding an end to white male voting right (or at least a 20 year moratorium) , the Huffington Post deemed such article and its racist premise to be worthy of publication.  Not only that, but facing criticism, its editor strongly defended the article. 
  • The column was eventually found to have been a hoax, and its author ended up losing his job.  The Huffington Post's editor apparently kept hers.  
If whites are to blame for everything, how come African countries have so much racism, inequality, poverty, tribal violence, genocide and corruption, in spite of billions of dollars in aid over many decades now?
 
VIDEO -Time to condemn racist "Black Nationalism" By Jay Fayza, Rebel Media
 
According to the FBI, 24.3 percent of people who committed hate crimes were Black. Considering that Blacks are just 13 per cent of the US population, that is a wildly disproportionate number.  Black nationalism, especially in the form of anti-white propaganda and violence, is a serious problem in America.  It’s just as much of a problem as white nationalism can be, if not more, since it’s widely accepted in our culture to be racist against whites.

The Left's Ultimate Plan Revealed


For a distillation of the contemporary left’s worldview, one needn’t look any further than a blog post that was recently published at the Huffington Post:
“Could it Be Time to Deny White Men the Franchise?”   At least one could have turned to this post—until HuffPo took it down.  But we’ll get to that shortly.
The author, a person going by the name of “Shelley Garland,” a self-declared South African and graduate student in philosophy, argued that it is morally necessary to temporarily deny the franchise to white men.   Moreover, at least some of their resources should be repossessed and “redistributed” to others. 

Garland explains her reasons.  First, white men are bad for left-wing progressivism.  “Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year,” she writes, “have often been due to the votes of white men.”  She gives examples.  

 
“If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa’s biggest cities.”  “If white men no longer had the vote,” Garland summarily states, “the progressive cause would be strengthened.” 
 
She’s quick to underscore that she is proposing nothing more than “the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation),” for this is all that it would take to “go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world.”

TERROR ON CHAMPS ELYSEES - Read article by Soren Kern on the irreversible Islamization of France - AND WHILE FRANCE IS UNDER SIEGE BY ISLAM, IT CONTINUES ITS RELENTLESS WAR TO DELEGITIMIZE ISRAEL

One of the arguments against a French exit from the European Union is that the EU has brought peace to Europe, preventing any more wars between European countries.  HOWEVER, it is the EU itself that has brought violence, crime, and terror into the EU countries with its policy of open borders and limitless migration from countries where violence is endemic. 
A French police officer was tonight shot dead on the Champs Elysees in Paris (pictured) - just as presidential candidates took part in a TV debate nearby
Reports suggest 'at least' two people were involved in the attack which took place as presidential candidates debated on a TV show nearby before Sunday's election.  The Interior Ministry spokesman said on BFM the officers were deliberately targeted and the police union added that one of them was shot dead while sat in a car at a red light. 


Police officers quickly secured the area - which is popular with tourists and Parisians - after the attack and the road was on lockdown by 9pm 

 

Officially, France prohibits any form of boycott against Israel.  However, according to a report recently released by NGO Monitor, the French government continues to fund NGOs openly hostile to Israel and to fund NGOs that support and promote boycott campaigns against Israel. 

While the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs is officially claiming the necessity of peace and secure borders for Israel, it is discreetly financing organizations and NGOs openly hostile to Israel. NGO Monitor’s meticulous report reveals that France is no friend of Israel but more and more of a prime mover in the war against Israel to delegitimize it.
French President Francois Hollande welcomes Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the Elysee Palace before attending a unity rally “Marche Republicaine” on January 11, 2015 in Paris in tribute to the 17 victims of a three-day killing spree by homegrown Islamists.

The masks already fell when French government supported the shameful UNESCO resolution to deny any tie between Jews and Jerusalem and the more than shameful UNESCO resolution saying that Western Wall of the Jerusalem’s Second Temple, destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE was “occupied territory.” Now it is clear, France is at war with the Jewish state.  (Read more further down this page.)
 
Israeli PM's advice for French president
A few weeks ago the French government - while bloodied by recurrent acts of terror -  organized an international conference aimed at IMPOSING the partition of Israel for the creation of terror Palestinian state on Biblical Jewish land.  
 
As in many other western attempts at finding a Final Solution to the Jewish Problem in the Middle East, it did not reach its goal.
 
If the government's idea is to ingratiate itself with Muslims, it is failing miserably as the ever growing Muslim population of France is in open war against the French state, its culture, and innocent citizens. 
 
The irony is that while France tries to partition and delegitimize Israel, the French people are losing sovereignty over their own territory, as sectors controlled by Muslim population (No-Go Zones) continue to expand.
 
Today Parisians and visitors were once again terrified at another act of Muslim violence, this time in the popular Champs Elysees, where two policemen were targeted and murdered by Muslim shooters.

THE MIRACULOUS HEALING POWER OF MUSIC - Guitarist Andrew Schulman was in a coma and dying at the ICU with only minutes of life left, until his wife let him listen to music on his IPOD - His vital signs immediately picked up and he eventually made a full recovery

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I happened to listen to an ABC Australia interview with musician Andrew Schulman the other day and found it deeply moving, so here I'm sharing it with you.. 

 
  • Guitarist Andrew Schulman's wife, Wendy, sat at the ICU watching as her husband's life slipped away from him.  Everyone agreed he was just minutes away from dying. 
  • Following pancreas surgery in 2009, Andrew Schulman had suffered a cardiovascular collapse and was not expected to survive.
  • In a desperate act to bring him back, or to ease his exit, she placed his iPod earphones in his ears and pressed PLAY. 
  • The first item was an inspirational piece by J.S Bach. 
  • Then a miracle occurred.  Andrew slowly began to return to life.  And he healed and survived. 
  • Not only that, but he became a medical musician, visiting hospitals and playing music to terminally ill patients, and seeing them react positively to his music.
  • He is the author of  Waking the Spirit: A Musician’s Journey Healing Body, Mind, and Soul, about the healing power of music.

On this page read a summary of his moving ordeal, and then a transcript of an interview by Australia's ABC, with a link to the audio.

    BERKELEY VIOLENCE AND THE NEW CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA - Author Daniel Greenfield explains how the Democrat led 'resistance' is all about dismantling the state - VIDEO of Berkeley confrontation by Lauren Southern

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    *  Democrats and other leftists have lost the argument, so they resort to violence to silence their opponents. 
    *  For many months leftist and anarchist groups have routinely used threats and violence to disrupt and cancel legal demonstrations by Trump supporters, including rallies in which candidate Trump was scheduled to speak. 
    *  At some point Trump supporters decided to fight back.  While not initiating violence, they came ready to defend themselves.  This is the result.   
    A Trump supporter bleeds after being hit by a counter protester. Dozens of police officers in riot gear were standing nearby
    A Trump supporter bleeds after being hit by a leftist protester. Dozens of police officers in riot gear stood idly by, except to arrest pro-Trump protestors.
  • A 'Patriots Day' rally was held in support of President Donald Trump in Berkeley, California Saturday
  • It coincided with thousands who marched across the country to pressure  Trump to release his Tax returns
  • Anti-Trump mobs threw stones, lit fires, tossed explosives and tear gas and attacked with makeshift weapons.  Their opponents responded with fist fights.
  • Police stood by through the violence, and only 15 people have been arrested, mostly pro-Trump demonstrators, although leftists used an arsenal of bricks, sticks, pepper spray, and more.

  • * On the following video by independent journalist, author, and pro-free-speech activist Lauren Southern, she tells how she came prepared for leftist violence by wearing a helmet and breathing apparatus, and bringing along a few male friends as bodyguards (she has been physically attacked by leftists in the past). 
    She needed them, as leftists threw bricks, stones, and fireworks, and sprayed pepper spray into the pro-Trump crowds, while police mostly watched the scene from their cars. 
    *  It seems that police only made arrests when pro-Trump demonstrators defended themselves.  California leftist authorities apparently made police abandon  their obligation to protect peaceful demonstrators as long as those committing violence were leftist mobs.

    VIDEO:  BATTLE FOR BERKELEY

    Next read Daniel Greenfield's essay on the terrorist nature of leftist mobs, and see many photos of violence on Berkeley streets, as leftists use makeshift weapons in an attempt to intimidate and silence their opponents.    This situation is eerily reminiscent of the 1930s Brown Shirts, Hitler's own mob that attacked opponents' gatherings in order to silence them.

    Trump supporters charge against anti-Trump protestors amid smoke from a smoke bomb that was thrown into the crowd
    -  Trump supporters charge against anti-Trump protestors amid smoke from a smoke bomb that was thrown into the crowd  - Trump supporters feel are not defending the man himself, but the integrity of the republic against attacks on western values. 
    -  They know that unless they fight back, the USA will slide into a situation similar to that of Sweden, France, and Germany, where the original population is under siege by millions of hostile migrants, while authorities fail to protect citizens.
    Hundreds of people with opposing opinions on President Donald Trump threw stones, lit fires, tossed explosives and tear gas and attacked each other with makeshift weapons as police stood by

    Hundreds of leftists threw stones, lit fires, tossed explosives and tear gas and attacked pro-Trump supporters with makeshift weapons.  They had to defend themselves as police stood idly by unless leftists got hurt.

    BREITBART:  AJ Alegria, 31, of Sacramento, told the Times he came to Berkeley to help defend Trump supporters and was surrounded by a dozen protesters in black masks who he said attacked him with sticks and pepper spray.  
     
    “These people create violence all the time… somebody has to stand up to them,” said Alegria, who was injured in the fight and treated by Trump supporters who bandaged his head, washed off the pepper spray and gave him encouragement, saying, “You’ve earned your stripes, bro.”    

    “I got hit in the back of the head with some sticks,” Bergquam told the San Francisco Chronicle as another activist wrapped gauze around his wound. “I don’t agree with everything Trump says, but I don’t agree with violence.”
     
    With assistance from the Oakland Police Department, the Berkeley police fared better at keeping the peace than they did in February, when violent demonstrators set fires and destroyed more than $100,000 worth of property that forced the cancelation of a speech by then-Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos at UC Berkeley.  The Chronicle reported that several liberal groups long-planned to disrupt the pro-Trump rally with the intent to shut it down. 

     
    CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA
    “Resistance” Democrats are a terrorist party committed to overthrowing our government.

    By Daniel Greenfield
    Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center
    He is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.
     
    Some key points on Daniel Greenfield's column:
    • The left has declared that President Trump’s victory is illegitimate. The response is “Resistance.” 
    • That covers violent anti-government protesters, states declaring that they are no longer bound to follow Federal immigration law and Senators obstructing for the sake of obstruction.
    • They have normalized the radical leftist position that our system is illegitimate. They have moved into the second phase of the left’s program of demonstrating that illegitimacy through confrontation.
    • The final phase is to overthrow the system through actions ranging from protests to terrorism.
    • The left’s endgame is a totalitarian state. Its “moderates” pursue one by peaceful means only so long as they are allowed to hijack the system.
    • When an election fails to go their way, the radicals brandish it as proof that the system has failed and that violent revolution is the only answer.
    • What was once the obscure behavior of a deranged political fringe has become the mainstream politics of the Democrats.
    • The Resistance theme shows that the radicals have won. The Democrats haven’t just fallen to the left.
    • They have fallen to the radical left which believes in overthrowing our system of government through conflict and confrontation rather than covertly engineering change.

    AUTHOR DANIEL GREENFIELD WRITES ABOUT THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA: 
    What does #Resistance really mean? It means the overthrow of our government.  

    In this century, Democrats rejected the outcomes of two presidential elections won by Republicans.     After Bush won, they settled for accusing him of being a thief, an idiot, a liar, a draft dodger and a mass murderer. They fantasized about his assassination and there was talk of impeachment. But elected officials gritted their teeth and tried to get things done.

    This time around it’s “radically” different.   The official position, from the Senate to the streets, is “Resistance.” Leftist media outlets are feeding the faithful a fantasy that President Trump will be brought down. There is fevered speculation about the 25th Amendment, a coup or impeachment due to whatever scandal has been manufactured last.

    This fantasy is part clickbait. Leftist media outlets are feeding the worst impulses of their readers. But there is a bigger and more disturbing radical endgame.

    Gluten allergy in coeliac disease may be provoked by a virus

    By Andy Coghlan, New Scientist
     
    Infection with a common, symptomless virus could be one of the first steps towards developing coeliac disease, a painful autoimmune condition that damages the gut.
     
    Coeliac disease involves the immune system treating gluten as an antigen and attacking it and has generally been thought to be a genetic disease.
     
    However, there is some evidence that the onset of the condition may be linked to people experiencing viral infections. These may include infection by adenoviruses, which cause colds, rotaviruses, which can cause diarrhoea, and the hepatitis C virus.
     
    Now there is experimental evidence that some viruses may indeed prompt the onset of coeliac disease.

    DISTURBING - FBI KNEW OF, AND COVERTLY ENCOURAGED, JIHADI TERROR ATTACK against freedom of speech activists in Garland, Texas - FBI agents knew when and where it would take place, but did nothing to stop it - One of the intended victims draws stunning conclusion as to the FBI and then president Obama motivations

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 


    *  The following articles and recent video detail a disturbing incident in 2015, where an FBI undercover agent encouraged a jihadi massacre of lawful pro-freedom-of-speech activists. 
    *  The FBI, knowing full well when and where the shooting would take place, had no plans to stop them.   The question is why, and under whose orders. 
    *  Activists with the American Freedom Defense Initiative had organized a public Draw Muhammad Contest in Garland, Texas.  An alert traffic officer took down the two jihadists seconds before they could perpetrate the massacre.
    *  One of the FBI agents involved in the plot was present to watch the planned shooting, and stood passively as the drama began to unfold.
    *  Authorities in western countries try to appease Islam by discouraging freedom of speech activists from drawing Muhammad.
    *  Muslims regard the visual representation of Muhammad as a serious violation of their blasphemy laws.  
    *  Many western authorities prefer to sacrifice freedom of speech to avoid Muslim rage.  These authorities regard activists such as Pamela Geller as 'troublemakers' instead of defenders of a fundamental freedom, and so this may explain their alleged reluctance to protect their lives. 
     


    A group of freedom-of-speech activists with the  gathered at a public meeting in Garland, Texas, to carry out a Draw the Prophet contest.  Among those activists were Robert Spencer of Frontpage Magazine, Pamela Geller (pictured on the right), a well-known anti-Sharia activist, and Rebel Media journalist David  Menzies. 
     
    Here is David Menzies' summary of this FBI inexplicable collaboration with jihadists - which so far has NOT been investigated by the FBI or by any other government agency - followed by a short video presentation.

    • David Menzies:  Recently, U.S.-based ISIS conspirator Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem was sentenced to 30 years in prison for his part in plotting a terrorist attack in 2015 at the venue staging a Draw Mohammed contest in Garland, Texas.
    • Having covered the event for Rebel Media, I remained interested in the follow-up stories of the thwarted terrorist attack especially because if those sharia stooges had their way, Yours Truly and about 100 other people could’ve been massacred.
    • And lately, more disturbing information has emerged regarding the would-be Garland massacre attempt.
    • Watch as I share what event co-organizer Robert Spencer has had to say about the FBI’s role that day.
    • The fact is, they (the FBI) knew heavily armed terrorists were headed to Garland on the day of the event, yet they didn’t bother to inform the organizers. Why?
    • Since the FBI won’t launch an internal investigation into this scandal, all we can do is speculate regarding the FBI’s mysterious motives.
    • For his part, Spencer believes perhaps the FBI actually wanted the attack to succeed, and while it may sound preposterous, until the FBI comes forward with full disclosure of their inexplicable behaviour, what else do we have to go on?
    VIDEO - Were Garland, Texas, jihadis aided by FBI?
     

    FBI agent was at the Garland jihad attack,
    egging on the attackers.
     
    He “didn’t try to stop” Garland jihad attackers.  Following orders from higher officials in the Obama administration, did the FBI want Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer dead for daring to challenge Muslim blasphemy laws in America? 
     
    By Robert Spencer, Frontpage Magazine
    Investigation: Agents work on the scene near to where the men opened fire before they were shot dead by a traffic officer. Investigators destroyed some of the belongings found inside the back of the suspects' car, pictured, as a precaution

    Although we were co-organizers of the event, neither Pamela Geller nor I appear, except in one still photo, in this 60 Minutes piece on the jihad attack at our Garland, Texas free speech event in May 2015. All they say is that “a self-described free speech advocate named Pamela Geller was holding a provocative contest.”

    WHAT'S THE MEANING OF PASSOVER? The link between the Biblical Exodus and the history of the United States and the Jewish people

    ©http://ottersandsciencenews.blogspot.ca/. Unauthorized duplication of this blog's material is prohibited.   Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full credit and link is given to Otters and Science News Blogspot.  Link to this post:  http://ottersandsciencenews.blogspot.ca/2016/04/whats-meaning-of-passover-link-between.html - Thank you for visiting my blog.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The EXODUS or Passover has had an enduring cultural legacy both for the Jewish people, and for the American people. 

    The following article by Ambassador Yoram Ettinger lists some of the direct connections between Passover and United States and Jewish history.

    Some key points on this article:
    • The Passover legacy contributed to the foundation of the culture, justice and liberty of the USA
    • The Biblical liberation from Egypt inspired the early Pilgrims heading to the Promised Land. Hence, the abundance of sites in the US, bearing Biblical names
    • The Exodus also shaped the worldview of the US Founding Fathers, who viewed themselves as the people of the “modern day Covenant” 
    • Some US Founding Fathers proposed the Parting of the Sea as the official US seal
    • “Go down Moses” and “Let my people go” became the pillar of fire for the Abolitionist Movement.
    • Harriet Tubman, who risked her life smuggling slaves to Free States and Canada, was known as “Mama Moses.”  
    • On December 11, 1964, upon accepting the Nobel Prize, Martin Luther King, Jr., who was referred to as the Moses of his age, said: “The Bible tells the thrilling story of how Moses stood in Pharaoh’s court centuries ago and cried, ‘Let my people go!’”
    • And for the Jewish people, there have been many other symbolic instances of the miraculous parting of the sea, leading to their repeated salvation over thousands of years of Jewish history.
     The Linkage between the Jewish Passover
    and American and Jewish History

    By Yoram Ettinger 
    Author is consultant to Israel’s Cabinet members and Israeli legislators, and lecturer in the U.S., Canada and Israel on Israel’s unique contributions to American interests, the foundations of U.S.-Israel relations, the Iranian threat, and Jewish-Arab issues.


    While Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” – partially based on the teachings of Moses, Judge Gideon and Prophet Samuel – cemented the 1776 American Revolution against the British crown, the Passover legacy cemented the Jewish Revolution (against the Egyptian crown), Jewish nationhood and the Jewish state. 

    The Passover legacy contributed to the foundation of the culture, justice and liberty of the USA, and the special attitude by the American people towards the Jewish state.

    WHY ATTENDING COLLEGE IS NOW MOSTLY A WASTE OF MONEY - Online courses are already replacing campus instruction, and are much more affordable and hassle-free

    • If you attended a good Midwestern university in the 20th century you were able to pay out-of-state tuition, textbooks, and room and board with what you made in tips working as a waiter/waitress in the summer.  
    • University education was generally good, there was no PC-Police on campus, everyone was free to express his opinion. 
    • All ethnic groups got along courteously with one another, and some kids made life-lasting friendships. 
    • Alternative sexual preferences were still relatively private, instead of a political statement.
    • And most importantly, kids got to learn academically and as a life experience.  Their degree was worth something.   
    • Much has changed since then, and for the worse.  Universities are now seething with anti-white, anti-Jewish, anti-conservative intolerance.
    • Censorship of non-leftist viewpoints is rife.   Students violently shout down any attempt at debating ideas they disagree with. 
    • Colleges offer expensive and useless courses and degrees, and nurture a culture of victimhood and ego fragility.   
    • Entrance qualifications based on merit are gone.  Now affirmative action based on race and gender determines who gets in, and who stays out. 
    • And other than government out-of-control lending for tuition, there is no good explanation for why colleges and universities have become so ridiculously expensive. 
    • We need a movement for the private funding and creation of a new sort of post-secondary education where the main objective would be to teach well, not to do fancy research or pay for expensive sports activities.  These would be colleges and universities where a degree would represent the student's individual effort and intelligence, instead of be the result of grading based on correcting perceived social injustices. 
    • The following article from Zero Hedge is based on anecdotal evidence, but it describes the situation rather well.  
     
    DOUG CASEY EXPLAINS WHY
    COLLEGE IS A WASTE OF MONEY
     


     
    I recently sat down again with Casey Research founder Doug Casey to discuss a troubling trend: the fast-rising cost of a college education. Read our conversation below to see why Doug says relying on - and paying for - today's educational paradigm "makes as much sense as entering a Model T Ford in the 24 Hours of Le Mans"…

    WHY ARE CHRISTIANS PERSECUTED IN EGYPT? AND WHY DOES THE GIZA PYRAMID LOOK UNFINISHED? The catastrophic result of the Muslim conquest of Egypt's indigenous people and culture

    • Not many people question the presence of Arabs in Egypt, the cradle of one of the greatest civilizations in antiquity, or why Egypt's inhabitants now call themselves "Arabs" - a denomination for people originally from the Arabian peninsula. 
    • The historical truth is that the indigenous Egyptians were invaded and conquered by Arab armies in the year 640 AD.  
    • Egypt was Islamized and the indigenous Egyptian culture forever lost, while the Christian population was - as dictated by the Koran - relegated to the subservient status of dhimmitude, a constant target for discrimination and persecution.  
    • Egyptian Christians have just suffered a major terror attack during Palm Sunday, with dozens of victims.  Islamic State has taken responsibility.  JIHAD WATCH
    • Incidentally, the Islamic State (ISIS) is thriving in the Egyptian Sinai, a territory that Israel surrendered to Egypt in the name of "peace". 
    • That transaction has not brought peace to either Israel or Egypt, as jihadists now swarm in the Sinai desert, which Israel no longer owns, and which Egypt is unable to police.  
    • The Israeli surrender of Gaza to the local Arabs had similar results, as it is now ruled by a Hamas terrorist dictatorship.
    • For some reason the world expects a different result from the handing over of the Jewish Biblical heartland and Jerusalem to the Palestinian Arabs.

    Why Does the Great Pyramid of Giza Look Unfinished?

    The Great Pyramid of Giza was once covered by a smooth, beautifully polished layer of white stone. This outer layer was removed after Egypt was conquered by Islamic armies. The new Muslim inhabitants used the white stone to build mosques and palaces, leaving the ancient pyramids with their somewhat unfinished appearance.
     
    Historically, this is standard Islamic operating procedure. Wherever Islam has established itself throughout the world, it has destroyed or defaced monuments that represented the previous (conquered) culture and replaced it with Islamic structures and mosques. Afghanistan used to be Buddhist. Turkey used to be Christian. Pakistan used to be Hindu. The former cultures and any symbols of them were annihilated and replaced by Islamic culture.
