In the latest depth for commentary on immigration and terrorism, conservative talker Monica Crowley stated on the Fox Business Network that Muslims entering a country are themselves part of a conspiracy to take it over — and as a unique point of their religion, no less.
“We’re all understandably very focused on the violent jihad — that threat is urgent, and it’s immediate, and it’s life and death. But there has been a grand project going on throughout the Western world — certainly through Western Europe now for decades,” Crowley warned. “Somebody named Bat Ye’or wrote a seminal book back in 1985 called Eurabia, about the project where, with the perfect acquiescence of European leaders who wanted the cheap labor, and they wanted the energy supplies coming out of the Middle East and North Africa, opened their borders and their doors to waves of Muslim migrants.”
The book Eurabia by the Egyptian-born British writer Bat Ye’or (a pen name for Gisele Littman, born Gisele Orebi) presents a conspiracy theory that has been compared to classical anti-Semitism in its description of Muslim immigrants and every aspect of their communities as inherently dangerous and part of a subversive coup against society itself.

“Yeah, but that’s a different conspiracy. That’s a different plot,” Fox Business host Stuart Varney objected. “There’s a difference between plotting to bring people in as good, solid, cheap labor to run your factories, and a plot to bring in people to take over your country for Islam.”
“I’m not saying it’s a plot,” Crowley said. “What I’m saying is that the effect has been — there is a part of jihad called hijra, which is the spread of Islam in conquest through migration, not through the sword. So this is a different form of the jihad. And while Mrs. Clinton and the president, even the Republican candidates, have been very specific about talking about how to counter ISIS and violent jihad, nobody is talking about the broader civilizational threat.”
“That’s a fair point,” Varney responded.
The actual meaning of the proper noun Hijra, or migration, refers to the specific event in Muslim history when Muhammed and his followers fled the city of Mecca, where he had been targeted for assassination, and journeyed to the city of Yathrib (since renamed to Medina, “the city,” short for “The City of the Prophet”) where he was being welcomed. That event, marking the establishment of the first stable Muslim community, is marked as the beginning of the Muslim calendar.
Singer and songwriter pens ballad about ‘bunker boy Donald Trump’
Singer/songwriter Courtney Jaye, whose album "Love and Forgiveness" was named as one of the Top 50 Albums of 2013 by American Songwriter, has penned an epic ballot dedicated to President Donald Trump.
It was reported Sunday that Trump was rushed to the White House bunker on Friday evening as a few hundred protesters surrounded the building. As the weekend progressed, more and more protesters have come to stand in opposition to police violence and a White House they feel isn't doing enough to stop it.
Trump has tried to claim that he was really just "inspecting" the bunker, but it went down like a lead balloon.
‘Trump became what we feared’: New Lincoln Project ad accuses Trump of using the Bible as a prop to boost his polls
A brutal new ad from the GOP group The Lincoln Project called "War Zone" is attacking President Donald Trump for becoming what Americans have feared he would.
He didn't come out of hiding this week to help calm the nation or to bring Americans together.
"He wasn't there to offer words of calm and comfort," the ad said. "Instead, he became what we all feared. Evoked the worst of our past. Threatened our governors and states. He ordered our own soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan to flood the streets, instructing them to turn against Americans. Used churches and the Holy Bible as political props. He didn't invoke the Lord to give us wisdom, but to boost his polls."

You can’t get anywhere near Lafayette Park today since police expanded their perimeter. There are national guard and what look like federal corrections officers blocking 16th street, but about half these guys don’t have visible insignia or badges. pic.twitter.com/U1KtRnSpVj
