Unions Pass Resolution Demanding Oakland Schools Teach Students Cop-Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal Was Like MLK…

Jamal

He only killed a cop, what’s the big deal?

OAKLAND, Calif. – A collection of labor unions is demanding that leaders of California’s Oakland Unified School District allow a lesson plan that compares convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal to civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to appear on the district’s website.

In a resolution passed on July 14, the Alameda Labor Council condemned Oakland Unified school leaders for censoring the pro-cop killer lesson plan, entitled “Urban Dreams,” and accused them of buckling to the intimidation tactics of the Fraternal Order of Police and Fox News.

The Alameda Labor Council – which is affiliated with the AFL-CIO – is an umbrella organization that coordinates the political activities of more than 100 unions, including the Berkley Federation of Teachers and the California School Employees Association. [...]

In its resolution, the Alameda Labor Council maintains that Abu-Jamal is innocent of killing Faulkner and defends the “Urban Dreams” curriculum as “invaluable” for teaching students to think critically about social justice.

Specifically, the “Urban Dreams” lessons ask students to “critically examine a possible parallel between Martin Luther King, Jr., and someone else many believe is currently targeted by the U.S. government, Mumia Abu-Jamal.”

Pakistani Mob Kills Ahmadi Grandmother, Two Young Girls After Accusing Them of “Blasphemous” Facebook Post..

Religion of Peace™

(Reuters) – A Pakistani mob killed a woman member of a religious sect and two of her granddaughters after a sect member was accused of posting blasphemous material on Facebook, police said Monday, the latest instance of growing violence against minorities.

The dead, including a seven-year-old girl and her baby sister, were Ahmadis, who consider themselves Muslim but believe in a prophet after Mohammed. A 1984 Pakistani law declared them non-Muslims and many Pakistanis consider them heretics.

Police said the late Sunday violence in the town of Gujranwala, 220 km (140 miles) southeast of the capital, Islamabad, started with an altercation between young men, one of whom was an Ahmadi accused of posting “objectionable material”.

“Later, a crowd of 150 people came to the police station demanding the registration of a blasphemy case against the accused,” said one police officer who declined to be identified.

“As police were negotiating with the crowd, another mob attacked and started burning the houses of Ahmadis.”

“The attackers were looting and plundering, taking away fans and whatever valuables they could get hold of and dragging furniture into the road and setting fire to it… Some were continuously firing into the air,” he said. “A lot of policemen arrived but they stayed on the sidelines and didn’t intervene,” he said.

Hamas Executes More Than 30 Alleged Israeli “Collaborators”…

Media’s reaction: Meh, we’re too busy demonizing Israel.

Via Times of Israel:

Hamas has executed more than 30 suspected collaborators in the Gaza Strip over the past few days, a Palestinian news agency reported on Monday.

Unnamed Palestinian security sources in Gaza told Palestine Press News Agency that Hamas has managed to apprehend dozens of suspected spies in the northern neighborhood of Shejaiya — which saw heavy fighting with the IDF last week — and summarily executed them following a short investigation. The sources said that many of the suspects were caught with weapons, telephones, and SIM cards from the Israeli cell provider Orange.

Hamas has undertaken numerous anti-collaboration campaigns in the Gaza Strip over the past years, offering amnesty to repentant Israeli spies. In May, the Hamas government executed two condemned collaborators for divulging information which Israel used to kill two Palestinians.

In November 2012, Hamas men on motorcycles were filmed dragging bodies of accused collaborators through the streets of Gaza.

Imperial President: A Country Without Rule Of Law “Will Not Succeed”…

And he speaks from experience.

OBAMA: Regardless of the resources a country possesses, regardless of how talented the people are, if you do not have a basic system of rule of law, of respect for civil rights and human rights, if you do not give people a credible, legitimate way to work through the political process to express their aspirations, if you don’t respect basic freedom of speech and freedom of assembly … it is very rare for a country to succeed.

Not gonna happen.

Via Politico:

National Security Adviser Susan Rice on Monday said the civilian death toll in Gaza is “alarming.”

Appearing on MSNBC, the top White House adviser first said that the Obama administration “fully supports” Israel’s right to defend itself against threats like those from Hamas.

“It’s the U.S. view, as well, that the death toll and the civilian toll in Gaza is rising in an alarming pace,” Rice continued.

“It’s a concern that is grave and deepening on the part of the United States, the American people and the entire international community.”

Rice proceeded to call for “an immediate, unconditional humanitarian cease-fire,” echoing what President Barack Obama and his top officials have said in recent days.

Muslims Demand Apology From Scottish Organizers Of Commonwealth Games For Using Dogs During Opening Ceremony…

Islamophobia, or something.

Via Telegraph:

Malaysian politicians and religious leaders have attacked the use of Scottie dogs during the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony, claiming it was disrespectful to Muslims.

Around 40 Scottie dogs were used in the opening ceremony in Glasgow last Wednesday to lead teams around Celtic Park.

The dogs, which all wore tartan dog coats with the name of each team on them, were widely praised on social media, with many people stating they thought they had “stolen the show”. Hamish, who led out the Scotland team, received one of the biggest cheers of the night.

Judy Murray tweeted after the ceremony: “Scottie dogs in tartan coats at CG opening ceremony. Barkingly brilliant.”

However, not everyone was as impressed. Political and religious leaders in Malaysia have claimed the use of dogs connected to Muslim countries was “disrespectful”.

Possibly making matters worse was the fact that Jock, who was supposed to lead out the Malaysian team, sat down and refused to move as soon as his coat was put on, meaning he had to be carried by the team representative.

Mohamad Sabu, the deputy president of the opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party said: “Malaysia and all Islamic countries deserve and apology from the organiser.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) promotes the stoning of women, targets “the enemy” Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.), and vows to bring its violent campaign to Israel in the latest issue of its propaganda magazine, Dabiq.

As ISIL continues to wage war across Iraq and forcefully promulgate its extremist version of Islam, the group’s public relations arms is making an effort to justify the terror group’s violent campaign and bloody public executions.

The magazine, published by the Al-Hayat Media Center, ISIL’s PR wing, mandates the forced conversion to Islam for people across the globe and demands that all Muslims pledge allegiance to ISIL leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has announced that he is the caliph, or leader, of the new Muslim state in Iraq.

Hillary Clinton: “I Know How Hard It Is To Be The Leader Of a Small Country”..

Wait, which country did Hillary once lead?

Via Washington Examiner:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday that she knows how difficult it is “to be the leader of a relatively small country.”

Come again?

I know I’m relatively young, but I think I would have remembered President or Prime Minister or Queen Hillary.

Clinton made the comments on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” while discussing the conflict between Israel and Hamas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu.

“I’ve known Bibi a long time and I have a very good relationship with him, in part because we can yell at each other – and we do,” Clinton said. “And I was often the designated yeller.” [...]

“I know how hard it is to be the leader of a relatively small country that is under constant pressure and does face a lot of legitimate threats to its existence from those around it,” Clinton said.

Israeli Leftists Have Their Peace Rally Cut Short When Hamas Starts Firing Rockets At Them…

Irony overload.

Via Times of Israel:

Several thousand left-wing activists gathered in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square on Saturday evening, calling for an end to bloodshed in the Gaza Strip and a return to negotiations with the Palestinians.

Slogans chanted by the protesters included “Stop the war,” “Bring the soldiers back home” and “Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies,” Channel 2 reported. [...]

The demonstrations were cut short when Hamas unilaterally ended a humanitarian truce with Israel and resumed rocket-fire from Gaza.

Police had initially said they would not allow the rally scheduled for 8 p.m., as the mutually agreed 12-hour truce between Israel and Hamas was set to expire at the same time. Police said a large-scale gathering of thousands of people as Tel Aviv remained under rocket threat would not be permitted.

However, when Israel agreed to extend the truce until midnight, police allowed the rally to go forward, but Hamas resumed rocket attacks after 8 p.m., claiming it had never agreed to the 4-hour extension. The protest and the right-wing counter-demonstration were then dispersed.

Marxist North Korea Threatens To Nuke Obama White House…

A senior North Korean military official on Sunday threatened to launch a nuclear strike on the White House and Pentagon, according to Agence France-Presse.

“If the US imperialists threaten our sovereignty and survival… our troops will fire our nuclear-armed rockets at the White House and the Pentagon — the sources of all evil,” Hwang Pyong-So said in a speech in Pyongyang during a military rally.

Hwang is director of the military’s General Political Bureau.

Imperial President: “You Don’t Get To Pick Which Rules You Play By”…

Obama really said this.

. . . “Even as corporate profits are as high as ever, a small but growing group of big corporations are fleeing the country to get out of paying taxes. They’re keeping most of their business inside the United States, but they’re basically renouncing their citizenship and declaring that they’re based somewhere else, just to avoid paying their fair share,” Obama says.

“I want to be clear: this is only a few big corporations so far. The vast majority of American businesses pay their taxes right here in the United States. But when some companies cherrypick their taxes, it damages the country’s finances. It adds to the deficit. It makes it harder to invest in the things that will keep America strong, and it sticks you with the tab for what they stash offshore. Right now, a loophole in our tax laws makes this totally legal – and I think that’s totally wrong. You don’t get to pick which rules you play by, or which tax rate you pay, and neither should these companies.”

The White House on Monday defended Secretary of State John Kerry, after charges in Israeli media that he was “capitulating” to Hamas in talks to broker a cease-fire in the Mideast.

“Israel has no better friend, no stronger defender” than Kerry, deputy national security adviser Tony Blinken said at the White House.

He added that “no one has done more” for lasting peace.

Reports over the weekend, including one from The Times of Israel, quoted anonymous Israeli sources accusing Kerry of giving into Hamas’s demands.

Netanyahu is the anti-Obama when it comes to leadership skills.

Via INN:

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed Israeli citizens on live television Monday evening after Hamas fired a mortar shell that killed four people in southern Israel.

“We knew that we would have difficult days,” he said. “This is a hard and painful day.”

“Patience and determination are required in order to fight a terror organization that seeks to destroy us,” the prime minister added. “We will not complete the operation without neutralizing the tunnels whose only purpose is to annihilate our children and our civilians.

“The action against the tunnels is the first step in demilitarizing Gaza,” Netanyahu declared. “The discussion about demilitarizing Gaza must be a part of any solution, and the international community must demand this with fervor, instead of letting money that enters Gaza to reach Hamas, and allowing concrete that enters to be used in tunnels.

“There must be an end to this,” Netayahu said. “It is unacceptable the citizens of Israel will live underthreat of death. Killing from above and killing from below.

“We must be prepared for a prolonged campaign,” he stressed. “We shall continue to act with determination until we achieve our goals.”

Beirut (AFP) – The Islamic State, which advocates public stoning for adultery, has opened a “marriage bureau” for women who want to wed its fighters in territory they control in Syria and Iraq.

The jihadist group’s office is operating from Al-Bab, a town in Aleppo province of northern Syria, for “single women and widows who would like to marry IS fighters”, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The Britain-based monitoring group, citing residents, said interested parties were being asked to provide their names and addresses, “and IS fighters will come knocking at their door and officially ask for marriage”.

Pelosi: U.S. Must Work With Qatar On Gaza Cease-Fire Because They Told Me Hamas Is A “Humanitarian Organization”…

Pelosi

Huh?

Via CNS News:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says the United States must look to Qatar, an ally of the terrorist group Hamas, for advice in resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

“And we have to confer with the Qataris, who have told me over and over again that Hamas is a humanitarian organization,” she told CNN’s “State of the Union” with Candy Crowley.

As CNSNews.com reported last week, Qatar is a strong supporter and funder of Hamas. Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal operates from Qatar, and has so far rejected ceasefire proposals put forward by Egypt and promoted by Secretary of State John Kerry.

The U.S government designated Hamas as a “foreign terrorist organization” in 1997. Its founding charter calls for Jews to be killed and says all Muslims are duty-bound to join a jihad to destroy Israel.

Assploding Hypocrisy: Obama Tells African Leaders To Stop “Making Excuses” For Floundering Economy…

Mr. Obama’s about-face came during a town-hall gathering of 500 young African leaders in Washington sponsored by the White House. A young man from Kenya who addressed the president as “your Excellency” asked Mr. Obama when the U.S. would lead other industrialized nations in forgiving African nations of their international debts.

White House Furious With Israel’s Criticism of John Kerry, Warn It May Put Israel’s Relationship With U.S. In Jeopardy…

Looks like Obama’s “unshakable” commitment to Israel isn’t so unshakeable after all (see above).

WASHINGTON (AP) — Obama administration officials were fuming Monday over a torrent of Israeli criticism of Secretary of State John Kerry’s latest bid to secure a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas.

In unusually harsh language, officials said the criticism of Kerry could put the relationship between the U.S. and Israel in jeopardy. They also said the personal attacks on Kerry crossed a line and were particularly disappointing at a time of active conflict.

Israeli media commentators have leveled almost nonstop criticism at Kerry in recent days over his attempts to bring Qatar and Turkey — two countries viewed by Israel as strong Hamas supporters — into the cease-fire negotiations. Kerry was also being accused of abandoning some of Israel’s key demands during the negotiations.

In trying to implement the cease-fire over the weekend, “U.S. Secretary of State of State John Kerry ruined everything,” wrote columnist Ari Shavit in Monday’s Haaretz, Israel’s leading liberal newspaper. “Very senior officials in Jerusalem described the proposal that Kerry put on the table as a ‘strategic terrorist attack’.”

Kerry made no direct mention of the criticism during brief remarks Monday. However, he did seek to debunk the notion that the U.S. had backed away from its support for the demilitarization of Gaza, which has been a top priority for Israel.

Democrats Send 11 Fundraising Emails Shrieking Over Nearly Nonexistent Threat of Obama Being Impeached…

Apparently the Dems are so desperate they are going to gin up talk of a pending impeachment of their own president.

Via Fox News:

In a matter of days, Democrats looking to head off Republican gains in November have turned scattered talk of President Obama’s impeachment into a sustained rallying cry — even managing to fundraise off the perceived threat.

The campaign arm for House Democrats has been sending out a barrage of fundraising emails warning of the impeachment threat, and claims to have raised roughly $2 million in their latest push.

The president and first lady Michelle Obama have warned of that possibility on the stump. And a top White House official even said Friday “it would be foolish to discount” a bona fide impeachment push by Republicans.

The frenzied warnings have Republicans scratching their heads – after all, few if any in the party brass are openly pushing impeachment — and accusing the other side of ginning up the controversy for political gain.

“You know, this might be the first White House in history that’s trying to start the narrative of impeaching their own president,” House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., told “Fox News Sunday.”
