South Dakota: Meet Taneeza Islam, your friendly Muslim (activist) next door!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 11, 2018

I wish I was tech-savvy and knew how to design a Bull S*** meter for stories like this one.

Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)/Muslim Brotherhood activist to speak in Huron, South Dakota on Sunday (April 15th) to assure all of you that there is nothing to fear from migration of Muslim political activists to the Great Plains!

She believes in meeting those who belong to “vilified” groups, she says.

That is so funny because, by intimidating the speaking venues, she actually shut down events in South Dakota a few months ago where speakers who disagree with her political views were scheduled to speak.  Wasn’t she vilifying them with her actions?

It would serve her right if the tables were turned on her and she was silenced! (But, we don’t do that because we believe in free speech!).

See my Taneeza Islam archive here.

(Sub-headline should read CAIR political activist to speak to ‘Connecting Cultures’)

‘Discussion on Diversity’ focused on Muslims

People are encouraged to attend a free “Discussion on Diversity” featuring Taneeza Islam of Sioux Falls at 1 p.m. Sunday, April 15, at Top Floor Events.

A second-generation Muslim who was born in Michigan, Islam will talk about the Islam religion, as well as immigrants and refugees.

An RSVP-only lunch will be served during the event for a small fee (notice luncheon time change). Beverages and brownies will be available for everyone during the event.

Please RSVP lunch reservations to Amy L. Bennett at jampyview@yahoo.com and provide your name and the number of guests.

“We’re not trying to change beliefs, we’re trying to add value to our own,” said Amy Bennett, a member of Connecting Cultures in Huron, who was instrumental in organizing this program, along with Rhonda Kludt, Kim Rieger and Fern Marie Mattke, who helped secure a Thrivent Action Team Grant.

“Being Muslim in our nation can be very tenuous and painful for some,” said Bennett, who is Jewish. “How can we fulfill their lives without treating them like that? We want to respect someone else’s place or opinion. I’m willing to listen to your story and how it impacts you and understand how you feel that way.”

Bennett said she noticed a site for Taneeza Islam one day when she was looking at Facebook, and explored her further on YouTube.

“Her video was welcoming and approachable — with such a hot topic,” Bennett said. “We shouldn’t be afraid to have hard conversations.

What we should be afraid of is when we don’t have any conversations.”

Tell that to Ms. Islam!

At this point the Huron Plainsman gives a recitation of highlights from Ms. Islam’s bio, but fails to mention that she was CAIR Minnesota’s Civil Rights Director stirring up trouble for a St. Cloud high school in 2010, see here (among other things!).

In Islam’s own words:

“I believe the best way to overcome intolerance and hate is to actually meet a person from the group that is being vilified,” she said.

“I am the norm of what American Muslims are really like.”

LOL! But, that is precisely what we fear the most—that you, Ms. Islam, are the norm!

I’m guessing, but I think CAIR/Muslim Brotherhood wanted an Islamic political activist in South Dakota when they saw the opposition growing to more refugee resettlement there and Taneeza Islam is it.

Maybe someone should contact Ms. Bennett, since she wants to hear different viewpoints, and ask her to hold another luncheon for the opposing view on Muslim migration, CAIR, and sharia law in America! Wouldn’t that be the fair thing to do?

Australia “dumb” deal update: Aussie Libs want US to take families

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 11, 2018

Let me say at the outset that the Australia deal struck by the Obama Administration in its waning months is dumber than dumb and Donald Trump should have followed his first instincts and cancelled the whole thing (as even the Australians suspected he would) and been done with it in February of 2017.

Here we see that Australian immigration official Peter Dutton is being blamed for not allowing an Afghan family (who attempted to break in to Australia illegally) that have been split between the mainland and offshore detention to apply to come to the US.

Dutton’s call to rethink the 1951 UN Refugee Convention has to make the No Borders agitators crazy!  Out to get him now for sure!*

Not one word in The Guardian story about whether the US has any say in this! 

I believe the US State Department has already said that we aren’t taking extended families of the detainees (so far 220 of Australia’s rejects, mostly Muslim men, have been airlifted to Your Town, USA!).

For new readers, Australia had such an awful problem with boat people attempting to break in to their country that they made a new policy.  Anyone breaking in would be detained in offshore detention facilities and would never be admitted to the mainland.  That was about 5 years ago and they are sticking to the policy.  However! Lefties in Australia have been beating up the government ever since, so they found a way to wiggle out—thanks to Obama—by sending those they won’t grant refugee status to to America!

The Guardian:

Dutton urged to allow refugee families in Australia to apply for US resettlement

Split up refugee families stuck in limbo because of Australian government policy could be reunited if Peter Dutton let them apply for US resettlement from Australia, the opposition has said.

The comment follows revelations by Guardian Australia that a family of four had been split between Nauru and Australia since 2014.

Shayne Neumann

Leftwing “shadow minister” Shayne Neumann blames Dutton for not allowing sick Shiite Muslim family to reunite and apply for US resettlement.  Hey! Neumann, why should the US take on Australia’s migration problems!

Australian Border Force has told the 27-year-old daughter on Nauru that they could be reunited but only if her mother and sister returned to the island. The mother is in Australia confined to a wheelchair and awaiting surgery, and doctors have said she cannot go back.

While the mother and one daughter are in Australia they cannot apply for resettlement in the US, offered under a deal struck between the Australian government and the Obama administration. More than 220 have been resettled, out of a promise of “up to 1,200”.

By the way, something must have slowed the flow to the US.  Last report was over a month ago. Wonder what that is all about!

“Labor strongly supports the US refugee resettlement agreement and wants all eligible refugees – including those in Australia for medical treatment – to have the opportunity to apply for resettlement in the US,” the shadow minister for immigration, Shayne Neumann, said.

“The long-term issue of asylum seekers from Manus Island and Nauru in Australia could have been avoided entirely if Peter Dutton simply allowed eligible refugees in Australia the opportunity to apply to resettle in the United States.”

Nuts!  No offense to Dutton, but the US gets some say in this!

Asylum shopping!

Follow links back and see that this family with its health issues (including mental health issues) would be a huge burden on US taxpayers!  Legitimate refugees are to ask for asylum in the first safe country they enter, however, the whole system has been perverted and that is why the 1951 UN Refugee Convention should be trashed.

I have dozens of posts on the Australia “dumb” deal, click here to learn more.

*Don’t miss Dutton calls for reconsideration of outdated 1951 UN Refugee Convention, here.

Contact the White House!  Tell the President to cut it off now.  220 is too many already!
