In the last 24 hours over 50 readers of RRW clicked on my suggestion to go to Amazon and get the little book that explains what is happening and why Muslim immigrants are flooding western countries—it’s not that they are looking primarily for a better life (a job, a house, a car) it’s because their “faith” instructs them to change the world according to Mohammad’s instruction.
Go here, get the book and read it! (note I have no deal with Amazon or the authors!).
Modern Day Trojan Horse: Al-Hijra, The Islamic Doctrine of Immigration, Accepting Freedom or Imposing Islam?[Paperback]
Sam Solomon (Author), E Al Maqdisi (Author)
I’m wondering if Muslim leaders throughout the US were furious with the Boston Bomber Brothers because the plan is to take us over through our political process and every time someone like Tamarlan Tsarnaev goes off the reservation (because he can’t wait for the long-term plan) and kills innocent people, it sets their agenda back again. (Although as authors Solomon and Maqdisi tell us there is a terrorism/violence component to Mohammed’s original design).
Update April 30th: Well, this is strange. The little counter hasn’t moved since I signed the petition yesterday. I did see it moving up during the day as readers here (and elsewhere must have signed it). This morning I see it’s at 3,220! Could the White House be pulling a Marco Rubioand stopping its count? Are you getting that 3,220 figure today too?
Yesterday a reader (Joseline) commenting to the Laura Ingraham post, alerted us to a White House petition to Stop all Islamic immigration into the US.
If you agree with Laura Ingraham and me, go here (scroll down list) and sign it!
Here is the text of the petition:
In the wake of the Newtown shootings, the Obama administration thought they should overstep their Constitutional authority to impose gun control. Now in light of the Boston bombings and the direct ties to Islam, I’m calling on the administration to stop all Islamic immigration into the US.
Mr. Obama and others quote Qur’an 5:32, which is about the people of Israel, but NEVER quote the next verse which is about Muslims and indicates the real threat of Islam.
Islam is not a religion of peace. It is a totalitarian, political death cult and as such is not compatible with American culture.
As of this moment, 3,221 people have signed the petition and it needs (only LOL!) 96,780 more by May 22nd!
If you are saying to yourself, I agree but I will then be on some White House hit list—who cares! Don’t be a (click here)!

We are a small blog on a rather arcane subject that gets a moderate number of readers from day to to day (until the Tsarnaev ‘refugee’ brothers bombed Boston and since then our number of readers has steadily increased). Yesterday we had a record-breaking number of 3,708 readers.
If you are a new reader here, we started writing this blog (a charitable enterprise) in 2007 when Mesketian Turks/Russian Muslims were brought to our rural county in Maryland by the Virginia Council of Churches (subcontractor of major federal contractor Church World Service). We, blog partner Judy and other women friends, just wanted to figure out how that could be done with no approval process by local elected officials or consultation with the citizens who were told we must be “welcoming.” It is a very long story (chronicled in our category entitled ‘September Forum’), but the bottomline is that here we are, going on to our 6th anniversary in July, still trying to understand the refugee and asylum process in America (and the world!) and trying to educate you.
You can see from the categories on the left hand column how busy we have been—there are 1,500 posts on Muslim refugees alone! We are approaching the 1.5 million visitor mark and have written 4,626 posts in all. We have readers from all over the world.
If you don’t find a topic among our categories that interests you, we have a great search function. Type in a couple of search words and presto you will likely find something that you want to learn more about.
And be sure to check theTOP POSTS in the right hand sidebar every day to see what posts most readers are finding of interest. Sometimes it’s a post that is several years old because the topic has suddenly become relevant.
I apologize that our fact sheet (on the header) is out of date, but those mundane chores—updating a fact sheet (yuk!)—are hard to do when every day there are so many news stories begging to be reported. Also, I’m not very good at responding to comments (I’ll try harder). And, I stink at keeping up our facebook page, but have recently started tweeting, so follow me—Ann C @Refugee Watcher.
That would be the International Rescue Committee (one of the top nine federal contractors ) which, with much fanfare, hired the former British Foreign Secretary and pal of Tony Blair, David Miliband, to head one of the largest resettlement contractors bringing refugee “workers” to your towns and cities. We reported the news here on March 27th.
Pay attention Leftwingers! If you think the “humanitarian” refugee program is all about good works—helping the poor and the downtrodden and all that—think again!
This story is nearly a month old, but since I’m not in the habit of reading the World Socialist Web Site, it only just now arrived in my inbox thanks to reader Jim who spotted it.
Socialists say the IRC is a front for imperialists! No kidding!
David Miliband, older brother of Labour Party leader Ed Miliband and former foreign secretary, is stepping down as the MP for South Shields and taking over the job as head of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) in New York.
The IRC website states, “The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. At work in over 40 countries and 22 US cities to restore safety, dignity and hope, the IRC leads the way from harm to home.”
In his new job, Miliband will be playing a “role in the political intrigues of British and US imperialism” says WSWS.
The IRC’s charity status is used as a front behind which Washington pursues its strategic interests throughout the globe.It boasts a board of governors that includes former United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan and no fewer than three former US secretaries of state—Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albright and Condoleezza Rice. Sponsors come from among the wealthiest and most powerful of the financial elite, including Pepsi, Intel and McKenzie. [Maybe we could find a meat packer to throw in the mix as well!—ed]
[Readers please note that Socialists/Lefties George Soros and Samantha Power have also been on the IRC board or have close ties to the organization, here. Don’t try to put this in the Left-Right framework. What might the common thread be—money, power, ruling class status? a disdain for the regular folks? All of the above!–ed]
The IRC covers many of the geographical areas Miliband became involved with while at the Foreign Office in the UK—South Sudan, Afghanistan, Iraq, the Palestinian Authority, Sierra Leone and Sri Lanka—where both the US and Britain have extensive business and geo-strategic interests.
The majority of the IRCs funding comes from government sources (that would be you!). Miliband will make a larger salary than the President of the United States.
At the Foreign Office, Miliband oversaw an organisation employing 14,000 staff across 270 diplomatic offices. The IRC may be smaller, but its international reach is greater. It operates in more than 40 countries and within the US itself, with offices in 22 American cities.
The IRC has an operating revenue of around $390 million. A look at where the majority of its funding comes from gives an indication of whose interests it serves.
According to a report on the IRC from Root Cause, a non-profit research and consulting firm, published in the Independent, only 14 percent of its funding came from private sources.Government grants and contracts, in contrast, accounted for 44 percent, foreign government grants and contracts 27 percent and 11 percent from UN agency grants and contracts. As its president, Miliband will receive £263,000 a year (US$400,000) plus £30,000 (US$52,000) from related groups—five times the salary he received as an MP.
There has been criticism over the appointment by those who believe it will risk the IRC being exposed as an instrument of Anglo-American foreign policy. The Observer reports Michiel Hofman of Médecins Sans Frontières saying it could make dealing with groups such as the Taliban more difficult. “Assertions by humanitarian organisations that they are fully independent, there are no hidden political agenda, slowly wither away,” he said.
David Miliband Limited!
When interviewed, he appears as a petulant schoolboy waiting for something bigger and better to come along. In the meantime, he has turned his hand to making considerable amounts of money. He has reportedly amassed almost £1 million through public speaking engagements such as the recent lecture he gave in Abu Dhabi, for which he received £25,000. He set up a company, The Office of David Miliband Limited, which right-wing commentator Toby Young has attacked as a tax-avoidance scheme through which his non-parliamentary earnings are channelled.
You know what scares me about the article (read it all!)—I find myself agreeing with much in this report at the World Socialist Web Site! Ahhhhhhhh!
The photo is from this 2009 story in the Guardian which asserts ‘Hillary has a crush on Miliband.’
Here we go again! Call it politics African Muslim style!
Read this surprisingly frank ‘investigative’ report from the Minneapolis Star Tribuneon the latest city political caucus in a precinct now heavily Somali-populated. We reported on an earlier caucus meeting here ten days ago. Is the Star Tribune beginning to see the light? Hat tip: Randy
Hundreds of East African immigrants cheered and waved when Minneapolis City Council candidate Abdi Warsame took the microphone last week at a DFL caucus across from Riverside Plaza. Shoppers congratulated him as he walked through a Somali mall a few days later, past the bright scarves and carpets for sale.
On the surface, it is a happy tale: the city’s Somalis, denied democracy in their homeland, uniting to elect one of their own to the council.
But the Sixth Ward’s two other campaigns tell a darker story of political hardball, and have filed challenges to the caucuses after complaining to DFL leaders that Warsame’s supporters harassed and intimidated attendees.
Meeting broke for Muslim prayers and most discussion was in Somali—and you think there is no Shariah law creeping into America?
Caucuses described as chaotic
In interviews by the Star Tribune with the other candidates and seven other caucus attendees, a picture emerged of caucuses marked by chaos and confusion, with some men wearing Warsame buttons purposely or inadvertently intimidating and excluding those from other campaigns. Caucuses broke for Muslim prayer at 8 p.m. — which the DFL had approved ahead of time — prompting some participants who were not Muslim to leave because of the delays. Much of the business was carried out in Somali, which some caucusgoers did not understand.
