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.
MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asks why Bill Barr is trying to ‘erase Robert Mueller’s investigation’ before November
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace returned to television Friday night to address what she called outright corruption in the Trump White House after another example of the president trying to escape the consequences of the law.
Wallace began by calling Attorney General William Barr nothing more than Trump's "bouncer."
"He has been intellectually overestimated from day one. He is not a mastermind of anything," said Wallace. "He is Donald Trump's body man."
She cited "well-sourced spin" coming from the White House Friday evening, because there were people that she said were "enlisted" with trying to talk Trump out of commuting Roger Stone's sentence. She anticipated that Barr and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone may huff and puff about the act, but that they won't quit over it. "And we should remember their names forever. They are all accomplices in the greatest corruption of one of the most sacred powers."
Former US Attorney makes the case for why Congress should still impeach Trump — even if he loses in 2020
MSNBC's Rachel Maddow welcomed former U.S. attorney Barbara McQuade to "the Friday night horror show" to address a situation she said, "is as bad as it looks."
"You know, there are times when I try to be the voice of reason and point out other sides of an issue," said McQuade. "But this is as bad as it looks. No. 1, we've got William Barr, who is greasing the wheels in the key U.S. Attorney's offices that have jurisdiction over the activities of President Trump. But even though, you know, maybe we should have seen this coming, and there have been all kinds of hints that it's coming, I feel no more disgusted than I, otherwise, would be that Roger Stone has seen his sentence commuted. This is a man who obstructed justice, lied to congress, threatened a witness [and his dog], and the purpose of that was to protect President Trump. You know, this isn't President Trump's rewarding Stone for being a loyal friend. This is President Trump protecting President Trump. And I think it is a terrible attack on the rule of law. So, if anything, you have not painted a bleak enough picture."
Maddow sounds the alarm on Bill Barr ‘decapitating’ US attorneys in key places that were investigating Donald Trump
While President Donald Trump's commutation of Roger Stone is garnering most of the Friday night "news dump, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow sounded the alarm about a story that she's concerned is being lost in the shuffle.
According to Maddow, Attorney General Bill Barr has fired three U.S. attorneys that are responsible for prosecuting Trump and his businesses in three specific districts, the Eastern District of New York, the Southern District of New York, and the Washington, D.C. district.
"The president's attorney general has just ousted another federal prosecutor, whose office was handling cases pertaining to the president," she said at the top of her Friday show. "Tonight, it's the Eastern District of New York. Now, if you are the president and you and your campaign, and your inaugural committee, and your donors, and your lawyers, and your campaign staff, and your longtime friends, and associates keep finding themselves accused of felonies or at least targeted or involved in serious criminal investigations. Then, if you are the president, the federal prosecutors, what you probably have to worry about are three."
