Father of Georgia man holding starving children in New Mexico is Linda Sarsour’s ‘mentor’ and ‘favorite person’

Siraj Wahhaj Jr., 40, of Clayton County, Georgia, was arrested along with his two sisters and two other adults last Friday in New Mexico on charges of felony child abuse for holding 11 starving children in an underground trailer hidden from view in a compound described as “overflowing” with weapons and ammunition.

But there is more to this story that still lies hidden beneath the surface of the nightly news accounts we’ve all been following.

Nobody is talking about Wahhaj’s well-connected father, Siraj Wahhaj Sr., a radical Brooklyn imam who is the spiritual adviser to Democratic-Socialist and Bernie Sanders supporter Linda Sarsour.

Associated Press caught peddling blatant fake news at ‘far right’ protest rally in Portland

Following is a breakdown of AP reporter Andrew Selsky’s article ‘Portland chief orders review of use of force by police at protest; Patriot Prayer, ANTIFA faceoff; Counter-protesters say they were targeted’ which appeared in the Seattle Times on Aug. 6, 2018, page B6.

In an extremely biased article, Associated Press journalist Andrew Selsky begins by failing to note the Portland Police Department’s claim that its officers were attacked by Antifa mobs. He only notes the police order for Antifa to disperse without saying why.

In classic fake-news style, Selsky cites the second half of the police announcement, but censors the first half. [This same chicanery was used by ABC News, NBC Nightly News and almost every other mainstream outlet that reported on this story over the weekend.]

Then, pretending to be neutral, Selsky repeatedly quotes at length the CAIR-Portland and Portland Democratic Socialists of America’s denunciation of “white supremacists, white nationalists and neo-Nazi gangs” without noting that CAIR and DSA were leaders of the Antifa side.

Selsky fails to inform his readers that among the others on the Antifa side were Rose City Antifa, ILPS [a Philippine Communist Party front group], the Guillotine Pod [which was used to behead a manikin of President Trump at OccupyICEPDX followed by an enactment of public acts of sexual necrophilia with the head, in front of children], the green-masked Rojavist security force, International Socialist Organization, Portland Assembly, etc.

The article then turns to denouncing the “extremist” side, repeatedly calling Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys extremists while never referring to Antifa as extremist. [This is classic “label lynching,” also used repeated by ABC, NBC, etc.]

Mayor gloats after Obama-appointed judge rules against citizens who tried to stop mega-mosque

But residents file for appeal to higher court

By LEO HOHMANN

An Obama-appointed judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a group of residents seeking to stop a massive mosque from being built in their Sterling Heights, Michigan, neighborhood. But the residents, many of them Chaldean Christians who escaped persecution in Iraq, say they are nowhere near ready to give up the fight for their city and their community.

News of the decision by U.S. District Court Judge Gershwin Drain swept through Michigan’s large Chaldean community late Wednesday, Aug. 1. Many felt deflated.

“My phone is blowing up with neighbors calling,” one woman involved in the case told me.

New Michigan mosque: A not-so-open ‘open house’?

Unexpected guest welcomes chance to engage in real interfaith dialogue

Editor’s note. “Interfaith dialogue” is a big thing right now in the West, as churches seek to understand the Muslim population growing up around them due to immigration. But much of what passes for “dialogue” is nothing more than a contrived discussion about a “common word” and the “same god” theories while glossing over core beliefs that clearly clash. Below is one woman’s experience at a recent event in which a church is targeted for conversion to a mosque, first reported last week by LeoHohmann.com. She writes under the pen name Helen Abousamra.

On a dreary, rainy Sunday in Southeast Michigan, my husband and I decided, after attending church in Troy, that we would drive over to nearby Sterling Heights where the former St. Mark Lutheran Church is being converted into a Sunni mosque.

A group of Pakistanis had circulated flyers in the community advertising an “Open House” from 12-6 p.m. on July 22. We thought we’d take them up on it.

Iraqi Christian refugees on edge following earlier mosque battle that divided community

With wounds still fresh from a divisive plan to build a massive mosque in a residential area of Sterling Heights, Michigan, a group of Pakistanis are moving forward with plans for another project, and this one involves the conversion of a church into a house of Islamic worship.

The group held an “open house” last weekend at the former St. Mark Lutheran Church on 16 ½ Mile Road in Sterling Heights. But a group of Christians who attended said it was unlike any open house they’d experienced.

A young woman and a little girl were killed Sunday night in a mass shooting carried out in a city where handgun laws are highly restrictive. Thirteen others were wounded, five critically, in a sad story that the media has again reduced to one of mental illness and guns.

Rashida Tlaib says it’s time to rewrite Civil Rights Act of 1964, giving it more teeth

By LEO HOHMANN

A Muslim woman who is running for Congress says she has plans to expand the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in a way that would shield “communities of color” from a whole host of negative outcomes, including racial profiling by police, utility shutoffs for delinquent bill-payers and the denial of a bank loan based on a bad credit score.
