Here’s The Once-In-A-Lifetime Photo Linking Two Fearless Fighters Against Murderous Ideologies

Brigitte Gabriel is a fighter. She’s also a journalist, author, and activist who has been fighting tirelessly against the threat presented by radical Islam. As Western Journalism has reported, Gabriel has long warned of the terrorism carried out by Muslim extremists, including the bloodthirsty militants of Hamas who, she claims, use Palestinian citizens as human shields in their attacks on Israel.

She also founded the organization ACT For America, whose website describes its mission as “the nation’s largest non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots organization devoted to promoting national security and defeating terrorism.”

Now 50 years old, Brigitte Gabriel often tells of her early life in Lebanon, where she was born the first child of a Maronite Christian couple. “She recalls that during the Lebanese Civil War, Islamic militants launched an assault on a Lebanese military base near her family’s house and destroyed her home. Gabriel, who was ten years old at the time, was injured by shrapnel in the attack.”

For years, Gabriel traveled throughout the United States as well as overseas, sounding the alarm about the perils posed by radical Islamists intent on converting or killing Christians in the drive to create a Muslim caliphate. She often appears on TV and radio countering the claims of apologists who content that Islam is a “religion of peace.”

On her Facebook page, Gabriel has noted, “The most persecuted and victimized people in the world today are Christians in the Middle East. The perpetrators of the widespread destruction of that region’s Christian community? Islamists.”

Only hours ago, on Facebook, Brigitte Gabriel posted a remarkable picture that she says was taken during a trip “down under.” It’s a one-in-a-lifetime photo that shows the cross-generational bonds between two people who have fought against the unspeakable brutality of those who would kill them and destroy their people.

The share text that Brigitte posted on Facebook to accompany the photos reads:

While I was in Australia last month I had the honor of meeting a 92-year-old Holocaust survivor from the Auschwitz concentration camp. He showed me the numbers tattooed on his arms and I showed him the scar from the shrapnel that nearly killed me that night in Marjayoun when my home was bombed.

Generations apart, our enemies had the same goal of implementing their ideologies and killing those who did not subscribe to the same beliefs. This Holocaust Memorial Day, I say NEVER AGAIN. Won’t you stand with me?

US Prisons Becoming Jihadi Madrassas And Fomenting Radical Islam

Did you know our government is spending your tax money to teach Islam in America’s prisons, where inmates are radicalized before being reintroduced into American society? Sound far-fetched, right? It’s NOT!

Obviously, prison inmates need to have access to religious professionals due to their situation and the desire to mold them into better citizens during their time in jail. However, this does not mean that correction system officials can be lax about who they are putting in front of these inmates who are in a very vulnerable position and could become a danger to fellow Americans upon release.

The Wall Street Journal does a good job of laying out the problem in an article describing threats against an Egyptian immigrant and that immigrant finding out later the Imam had been hired by the U.S. government to teach Islam to inmates.

Imagine my surprise when I learned recently that the man who threatened me with death for apostasy is being paid by the U.S. Justice Department to teach Islam in American jails.

According to records on the federal site USASpending.gov and first reported by Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller, the Federal Bureau of Prisons awarded Mr. Bayly a $10,500 contract in February 2014 to provide “religious services, leadership and guidance” to inmates at the Federal Correctional Institution in Cumberland, Md. Ten months later he received another federal contract, worth $2,400, to provide “Muslim classes for inmates” at the same prison.

This isn’t a story about one problematic imam, or about the misguided administration of a solitary prison. Several U.S. prison chaplains have been exposed in recent years as sympathetic to radical Islam, including Warith Deen Umar, who helped run the New York State Department of Correctional Services’ Islamic prison program for two decades, until 2000, and who praised the 9/11 hijackers in a 2003 interview with this newspaper.

The article goes on to explain that Congress over the past few years has raised the issue of radical Islam in our prison system, but little has been done to address the problem. Europe has long been aware of the problem of prisons being a breeding ground for Jihadis. Along with immigration illegalities committed by this administration, prisons could be another avenue for the Obama administration’s quest to change the demographic and religious nature of America.

Congress and the new administration in 2016 need to address this problem as soon as possible.

WATCH: Former Terror Insider Reveals Islam’s True Nature In Six Words That Destroy Obama’s Lie

Mosab Hassan Yousef

He’s the son of a founding member of Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic terrorist organization (as designated by the United States government) that’s in constant conflict with the state of Israel.

He’s also an ex-Muslim who converted to Christianity after realizing the ideology in which he had been raised left him in a deceit-filled “state of delusion,” not understanding then what he understands now — that Islam is “a very dark theory.”

Mosab Hassan Yousef is the author of the best-selling book, “Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue, and Unthinkable Choices.”

In an interview with Glenn Beck that aired on TheBlaze TV, Yousef summarized his sense of Islam in six words that completely destroy what President Obama and others have long maintained.

Those six words: “Islam is the religion of war.”

Yousef charged that Obama’s position on the “religion of war” and his often stated belief that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam is a “big problem.”

“When the president of the free world misleads the public, this is a big, big problem I believe,” he said. “ISIS is the real face of Islam. ISIS is the real manifestation of the Islamic ideology, of the Islamic theory.”

Allen West: You Are Seeing This Global Jihadist Movement Coming Together

Allen West

Lt. Col. Allen West appeared on Wall Street Journal’s Opinion Journal on Tuesday to discuss the vacuum left by the pullout in Yemen – also categorized as Obama’s “success story” – and Iran’s expanding control amidst nuclear talks.

While President Obama continues to disregard Congress in the nuclear negotiations, West voiced his concerns about the imminently nuclear Iran.

“The biggest argument of not allowing Iran to have a nuclear device is they’re on the terrorist list,” West said. “I mean, they’re the number one state sponsor of Islamic terrorism in the world.”

West argued that the administration should not be accepting any deal with Iran because it has not changed its terroristic behavior, and added that it is currently holding four Americans hostage.

The host then asked West if he thought that, if Obama pushes the Iranian deal through, Saudi Arabia and other U.S. allies would go off on their own to counter the terror threat.

“What I am really looking at, from a strategic perspective, is from Nigeria all the way across over to the Philippines you’re seeing this global jihadist movement coming together,” West said. “…[War on terror] is a horrible misnomer that we have to get away from because terror is a tactic.”

“What you really are seeing is Islamic totalitarianism come together, and we have to understand that you have non-state, non-uniform, unlawful enemy combatants and state sponsors that we have to deal with,” he concluded. “And right now this administration is sitting back and they’re not focused on it whatsoever.”

She’s Baaack! Watch State’s Marie ‘Jobs For Jihadists’ Harf (Oh Snap) Prove Her Critics Right

Image Credit: YouTube/LSUDVM

As Western Journalism reported over a month ago, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf opened herself up to unrelenting ridicule when she told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews that America’s war against ISIS cannot be won by killing terrorists.

What the murderous Islamists really need, asserted Harf, is economic opportunity — a way out of poverty, deprivation, and despair. It was a far-left view of the West’s bloody conflict with radical Islam — an awkward attempt at excuse-making that came to be labelled the much-maligned “jobs for jihadists” approach to fighting Muslim militancy.

To Matthews’ credit, he was having none of Harf’s argument.

So then, the State Department flak headed on over to CNN to double down on the “jobs for jihadists” relief effort for terror-waging malcontents, while also sneering at her critics by saying her earlier comments were simply “too nuanced for some” to grasp. In other words, those who so passionately disagreed with her were, sadly, of an inferior intellect.

Well, now — just as the furor over the “jobs for jihadists” brouhaha was calming down — Marie Harf put herself squarely back in the harsh glare of the social media spotlight by offering another reason for the pounding criticism she’s received.

Her detractors who felt she was naive or nonsensicial in her claim that ISIS wreaks terror because the terrorists lack economic opportunity…well, they’re just “crazy”…crazy and sexist, charges Harf. They don’t respect what she said because, claims State’s official spokeswoman, she IS a woman.

Harf actually said she didn’t think her “jobs” remarks to be “in any way controversial.”

As noted on the website BizPacReview.com, Marie Harf raised this sinister specter of sexism at a foreign policy conference hosted by Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

In response to a question asking what has been her biggest professional gaffe or mistake, she also revealed how shocked she was that her original “jobs for jihadists” suggestion caused such a firestorm…which, predictably, set off another firestorm on social media.

It will be interesting to see if Marie Harf makes yet another attempt to defend her comments that overlook the religious dogma of radical Islam as a reason for the murderous rampage of ISIS across the Middle East.
