Anyone venturing an opinion about “Shakespeare’s” identity must hold a Ph.D. in English literature.

All Ph.D.’s affirm Premise 1.

Frequent reference has been made in the current presidential campaign to Donald Trump as almost uniquely lacking experience in the political arena and not formerly having held elective public office. Comparisons are drawn with the last non-politician to run for the presidency, General Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952.  more>>>

The Obama-Hillary Team and the Muslim Brotherhood: A Critique
clear

by Alexander Murinson (October 2016)

Despite numerous denials that Obama administration had wide-ranging dealings with the Muslim Brotherhood, it was indeed this administration with Hillary Clinton as its Secretary of the State Department which expanded a network of relationships with the Islamists. Donald Trump, by clearly identifying Radical Islam as America’s chief enemy, brings clarity into this debate.  more>>>

In the wake of the shootout and apprehension by Linden, New Jersey police on September 19, 2016 of New York/ New Jersey terrorist bomber, Afghan émigré Ahmad Khan Rahami, questions arose as to why DHS and the FBI hadn’t connected the dots identifying him as a potential terrorist? After all he had traveled to Pakistan and Afghanistan four times between 2005 and 2014, where he sojourned for a year.  more>>>

Canberra, Australia: Muslim Man Charged with Sexual Assault of Three Sex Workers
clear

A further development in a case that first came up in the news in May this year; a Muslim who hired an infidel call girl and then reneged on the "deal", making use of her without paying her for her services, and, indeed, threatening and robbing her.

See the earlier report here:

http://www.newenglishreview.org/blog_direct_link.cfm/blog_id/64392

And now for what happened next.

As reported by Tom Lowney for the ABC.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-09-30/man-pleads-not-guilty-to-sexually-assaulting-three-sex-workers/7891994

"Canberra Man to Fight Allegations He Sexually Assaulted Three Sex Workers".

'A Canberra man (that is: a Canberra-resident Muslim man - CM) has pleaded not guilty in the ACT Magistrates' Court to a string of charges relating to the alleged sexual assault of three sex workers.

'ACT (= Australian Capital Territory - CM) police yesterday arrested and charged Ahmed Al-Abbasi, 31, after executing a search warrant.

'Police launched Operation Sparren in August, in response to several reports of sexual assaults and robberies committed against sex workers in the ACT.

'Al-Abbasi faced court this morning, charged with multiple counts of sexual intercourse without consent, sexual assault, unlawfully confining a person, and aggravated robbery.

'Five charges relate to an alleged incident on May 10 this year, while another five relate to offences allegedly committed on March 12.

"It is alleged the offences were carried out against three separate victims.

O Ladies of Negotiable Affection, whether in Canberra, Australia, or anywhere else in the lands of the Infidels; if the "John" is an *Ali" or an "Ahmed", you would be well advised to reject and avoid and indeed to refrain from soliciting his custom, for if you don't, if you let the Mohammedan onto your premises, you may find yourself being cheated, robbed and abused, like these women in the A.C.T. - CM

'The March 12 offences were also allegedly carried out with two other men.

'ACT police have stated that a 23 year old Florey man (that is: a man resident in the suburb of Florey - and I'll bet good money he is a Mohammedan - CM), and a 21 year old Kaleen man (that is: a man, most lilely Muslim, resident in the Canberra suburb of Kaleen - CM) have been summonsed, and will appear in court at a later date.

'Ahmed Al-Abbasi entered not guilty pleas to all of the charges (of course he would regard himself as "not guilty"; he would have seen himself as fully entitled to do everything that he did, to Infidel uncovered meat; and if the victims had been respectable matrons or underaged schoolgirls snatched off the street, rather than "streetwalkers" offering sex in exchange for money - a "deal" that he broke, not merely by forcing the woman and denying payment, but by robbing her - he would still most likely see himself as entitled to do as he pleased to Infidel uncovered meat - CM) and the case was adjourned until November.

'A guilty plea was entered to an unrelated charge of minor theft at a 7-Eleven convenience store in Casey, which is being handled separately.

Rape and robbery, robbery and rape; this Mohammedan, in his own small way, is doing exactly as Mohammed did. - CM

'Police have indicated there may be more victims (I wouldn't be the least bit surprised  if there were - CM) and they are hoping some will come forward."

They will need to be assured that they will receive heavy-duty protection, if they do come forward; they should be treated exactly as if they were someone testifying against members of a large and powerful organised crime syndicate. Because, from a certain perspective, that is exactly what the Ummah is. - CM

South London: Stockwell Green mosque under investigation after 'promoting killing of Muslim Ahmadis sect'
clear

From the London Evening Standard

A London mosque is being investigated by the charities watchdog following allegations it promoted the killing of Muslims from a minority sect.

The Charity Commission announced the inquiry into Stockwell Green mosque today after reports that leaflets were found suggesting Ahmadis who did not convert to mainstream Islam within three days should face “capital punishment” — the death penalty.

Mosque leaders previously denied the leaflets were found at the premises.

The commission first visited the mosque — also known as Aalami Majlise Tahaffuze Khatme Nubuwwat, a registered charity — in May and launched the statutory inquiry this month. It will probe suspicions of poor governance, financial management and trustees “carrying out activities outside the charity’s stated objects”.

The probe comes after the killing of Ahmadi shopkeeper Asad Shah in Glasgow last March in a sectarian attack
