CAIRO (TheBlaze/AP) — A video released by the Islamic State group appears to show the killing of two different groups of captured Ethiopian Christians in Libya.
The 29-minute video released online Sunday purportedly shows two groups of captives. It says one group is held by an IS affiliate in eastern Libya and the other by an affiliate in the south.
A masked fighter delivers a long statement before the video switches between footage that purportedly shows the captives in the south being shot dead and the captives in the east being beheaded on a beach.

What ever happened to the leftist mantra ‘..Separation of Church and State?..’
And why is NOT ONE atheist speaking out against Islam being taught in American schools, yet they NEVER miss the opportunity to attack Jews and Christians?

Union Grove High School history teacher Beth Urban sent out an e-mail to students describing a future assignment where the student is asked to put themselves in the shoes of a Muslim.
According to the e-mail obtained by popular radio show host Vicki McKenna, the students were to write a five paragraph essay pretending to be a Muslim. The student is asked to write about the daily struggles that they would face as a Muslim student in the United States. The e-mail goes on to remind the students that class has been watching documentaries that have the facts needed to write the essay.
The assignment begs to have a few questions answered.
First of all, what documentaries were watched and who produced them? The Middle East is known for producing several “documentaries” that are full of propaganda and anti-American sentiment. Is that truly the type of video that our students should be exposed to? Were there other videos shown to balance the debate on the subject?
Is this assignment a conflict between separation of church and state? There have been many documented cases of Christian students being denied the ability to pray in public school and today’s history books have been mostly stripped of Christian history. Why is Christianity allowed to be shunned in our public schools while teachers are allowed to assign an assignment as religious based as this?
Most importantly, are the parents of Union Grove High School aware that this type of assignment is allowed in the school’s curriculum? How about the local school board?
The role of a history class is to teach history and not to show sympathy for any religious group. Hopefully the parents will remind the faculty of this so these type of assignments can be avoided in the future.
Here is a screenshot of the assignment sent to the students from their teacher, Ms. Beth Urban:

Fifteen Muslims allegedly threw a dozen fellow asylum-seekers overboard as they prayed for rescue from a sinking boat. Is Europe’s crisis at sea turning into anarchy?
It is dangerous enough for the tens of thousands of migrants crossing the Mediterranean Sea from Libya to Italy on rickety fishing boats without religious tension thrown into the mix.
But in an unthinkable tragedy within an already unimaginable situation, 15 Muslim asylum-seekers reportedly threw 12 Christian asylum-seekers overboard as they made their way from Libya to Sicily this week. “We only pray to Allah here,” the men said, according to others on the boat who said they clung together to protect the remaining Christians from being victims of religiously motivated murder at sea.
The incident took place Wednesday as 105 sub-Saharan Africans were facing trouble at sea in an inflatable rubber dingy that was losing air fast. According to survivors who were rescued by the Italian coast guard, the boat was sinking and everyone started praying to his or her deity of choice.
Apparently a group of 15 men asked the Christians to stop praying because only Allah would answer their Islamic prayers. When a young Christian man cried loudly asking God to not let the boat capsize, two Muslim men grabbed him by the neck and threw him overboard, according to witness accounts. Then, a group of Muslim men started throwing all who were praying with their hands clasped together overboard. Fifteen men were arrested when their rescue ship reached Palermo. The prosecutor there says they will face multiple counts of aggravated manslaughter.
According to Palermo police reports after interviews with survivors, the 15 men, who were from Mali, Senegal, and the Ivory Coast, were apparently feisty and antagonistic from the start of the trip, which is in stark contrast to the majority of migrants who are often so tired and afraid that they spend most of the journey in a state of shock. In an interview with La Repubblica, one of the survivors said, “They seemed crazy, they were out of control. They just grabbed the boy and threw him in the water because he was praying. We tried to stop them but they killed many,” the witness said. “We made a human chain with all of our hands so they couldn’t push more people overboard.”
Monsignor Giancarlo Perego, head of the Vatican’s Foundation for Migrants, warned that the incident may have just been a “moment of fury” and not an outright act of Christian persecution. “We need not to exaggerate the facts and turn this into religious hate,” he told reporters in Rome.
On Friday, a group of 70 migrants, including a six-month old baby, with severe burns were rescued from a sinking rubber dinghy. They told authorities that a gas canister had exploded while they were waiting to board the vessel, but because of the backlog of migrants in the Libyan port, the traffickers forced them on the vessel anyway. They were at sea for two days before being rescued, and 23 were airlifted to burn centers on the Italian mainland.
Early Friday morning, an Italian-flagged fishing vessel was commandeered by unknown gunmen who later claimed to be part of the Libyan coast guard. The Italian navy, which is running a defense mission along the Libyan coast near Italy’s offshore oil platforms, had to wrest back control of the ship, which was apparently headed toward Misrata, said Giovanni Tumbiolo, head of the Italian fisherman’s association. Early reports suggest the seven-man crew was locked in the ship’s lower compartment.
The seizure of the Italian ships is yet another incident in what is fast-becoming anarchy on the high seas. The European Union’s Frontex border-control agency said last week that one of their rescue ships patrolling the waters under their Triton mission was fired upon by armed traffickers who wrestled back one of the trafficking boats. In early April, an Italian coast guard ship also reported coming under fire as it rescued migrants.
The recent violent incidents play into fears in Italy that there are Islamic extremists among the genuine refugees trying to reach safety. In February, ISIS threatened to march on Rome, putting Italians on edge with even politicians warning that the boat people coming from Libya could be a conduit for jihadi fighters to sneak into the country. More than 11,000 people have been rescued at sea after leaving Libya and brought to safety on Sicily since April 11. Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, who is visiting the United States this week, says he will ask President Barack Obama for support to tackle the problem in Libya. When the leaders meet in Washington on Friday, he is expected to ask for American drone surveillance over the Mediterranean to help with anti-terrorism surveillance.
Back in Italy, the boats keep coming. On Friday, Italy’s coast guard said it expects as many as a dozen ships are now leaving Libyan ports every day, carrying anywhere between 50 and 500 people.

A 13-year-old girl has been shot dead by Isis snipers as she tried to flee a besieged refugee camp in Syria, Palestinian militants have claimed.
The child, named as Zaynab Daghastani, was reportedly killed on Tuesday outside her home in Yarmouk, which was overrun by Isis at the end of last month.
Militants entered an apartment building and apprehended the girl, Al Masdar News reported, and she was later shot dead by a sniper outside her home.
The website cited sources from Palestinian militant group Fatah Al-Intifada, which is fighting Isis alongside the Palestine Liberation Army and other armed factions, and the account could not be confirmed.
The International Business Times reported that Zaynab had been trying to escape the camp with her family, making for safety in the nearby district of Yelda.
Charity workers from the Jafra Foundation estimated that 2,500 families have fled so far to avoid street fighting and bombardment.
Militants with the so-called Islamic State have been backed by rivals Jabhat al-Nusra in efforts to control Yarmouk, which is home to around 18,000 Palestinians.
Their takeover prompted a series of air strikes by forces loyal to the Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, and United Nations officials have described the humanitarian situation as “beyond inhumane.”
Isis has been accused of beheading captives and murdering and endangering the lives of civilians in Yarmouk.
Pierre Krahenbuhl, head of UN Palestinian refugee agency UNRWA, said called on all sides to respect the “beleaguered” civilians trapped inside.
UN Calls for Safe Passage for Yarmouk Refugees:
“They have suffered untold indignities and I shall continue to work today to assist those who wish to temporarily leave in safety,” he added. “At the same time, we need to look at ways to provide humanitarian assistance to the civilians inside Yarmouk.”
Control of the camp has given Isis its first foothold in the Syrian capital of Damascus, adding another level of misery to residents who have already survived a two-year government siege, starvation and disease.
Mr Krahenbuhl said talks on Sunday with the Syrian government “offer some grounds for optimism” but stressed that much remains to be done in his meetings today with senior officials to secure humanitarian access for the camp.
Yarmouk was the main camp established in Syria for Palestinians who fled the 1948 war sparked by the creation of Israel.
Before the Syrian civil war, it was a sprawling, built-up neighbourhood that was home to more than 150,000 Palestinians but that number is falling as residents flee or are killed.
President Assad’s forces put it under a crippling blockade after Palestinian rebels based there sided with rebels trying to topple the government during the 2011 Arab Spring.

(All Muslim) Zaytuna College in Berkeley, California
by, Earl Cox | jpost | h/t Frau Katze @ Blazing CatFur
A brand new, first-of-its-kind Muslim college at Berkeley, California, received its accreditation March 15, 2015 from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Zaytuna College has two co-founders. One, Hamza Yusuf, states that this first Muslim college gives “our community its first accredited academic address in the U.S. And we hope, God willing, that there will be more such Muslim colleges and universities to come.”
Most Americans know Islamic mosques are popping up all over the U.S., in big cities and in small rural towns. Less know there are some 22 Islamic training camps (12 along the east coast and four in California). I frequently fly between Israel and the U.S. At security, men and women in Islamic headdresses perform security checks and handle baggage. At a DC area mall, I observed the presence of almost as many Muslim mothers pushing baby strollers and trailed by their other children as there were women wearing traditional American garb. Indeed, the Obama administration has instigated a massive, deliberate importation of Muslim refugees from Syria, Jordan and elsewhere. This population is growing faster than most Americans care to admit.
Listen to Hamza Yusuf lie about every aspect of Islam:

In the old days, who would have cared how many nations or ideologies were seen, especially between Boston, New York and D.C. I remember when the Hare Krishna converts seemed to be everywhere in D.C. as were women from India with their long dresses and forehead jewels, as an example. But they didn’t fly airplanes into tall buildings or vow to kill all Americans who refused to convert to their religious beliefs. What does a little Muslim college in Berkeley, California, have to do with a rapidly expanding Muslim presence in the United States? Believe me, just as all Germans were not Hitlers; all Muslims are not terrorists but a rose by any other name is still a rose. Whether benign or guilty, the Quran is still the Quran and Sharia Law is Sharia Law.
Look at it this way. If you see bees swarming in your attic, you instinctively know each bee is not dangerous. In fact, the entire beehive, in the right place for the right purpose is beneficial. Think honey. But, what if your attic had two types of bees that had made their nests and were swarming and you couldn’t tell the difference between the two. One was deadly and the other was not. Now you have a dilemma that must be carefully solved. An exterminator would surely rid your home of the deadly bees, preserving most of the honey bees. Would you dare to intervene and try to coddle and preserve the killer bees the way the U.S. is coddling and preserving its Islamist enemies? Bees build hives; Islamists build caliphates – and they kill people to do it.
Hatem Bazien, the second founder of the new Muslim college, does not appear to be of innocent intent. Bazien was accused of whipping up anti-Semitism on campuses across the U.S. and also aided in the establishment of “Students for Justice in Palestine” which is an anti-Israel organization. He supported the Iraqi insurgency, April 2004, at a rally in San Francisco and appeared to also call for an uprising in the U.S. during the rally. Critics say he is “suspect,” and “any school associated with him is suspect.” And one expert, Nonie Darwish, a human rights advocate and founder of “Arabs for Israel” said, “He (Bazien) is an anti-Israel activist and he uses academia to further his agenda.” What would a proliferation of like-minded-Bazien-type Muslim colleges across the U.S. likely achieve over the coming years?
Follow-the-dots! Heed the clues! To do otherwise is a recipe for disaster or is evidence of a suicide mission. Which is it? America must wake up before it is too late. Over the past century, Progressive Socialists/Communists infiltrated academia, churches and local and national governments in America. America has changed drastically. Learning from the same playbook, Muslims are duplicating the Progressive wave and are infiltrating academia, churches and local and national governments.
America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, may land in the dustbin of history if her people fail to learn to differentiate between honey bees and killer bees, between Muslim pirates and the rest of Muslim society. President Jefferson didn’t spare the Barbary Pirates. So serious was the matter that he created the U.S. Navy to be the exterminator.

Stop! cried the big brother of a 10-year-old boy who had been dragged into a toilet in the new mega mosque in Copenhagen, Denmark, where a 47-year-old Muslim man apparently was in the process of raping the boy.
The Big brother’s cries and knocks on the door was, according to the indictment which Ekstra Bladet has gained access to, the reason why the 47-year-old gave up the attempted rape.
He pushed the 10-year-old boy out of the toilet and locked the door again. Shortly after, the 47-year-old arrested.
The 47-year-old is now charged with attempted rape or other sexual assault and on Tuesday he met for the Copenhagen City Court, where he might not be sentenced to prison because of his mental state.
He is currently in custody at a psychiatric ward.
According to the indictment, the attempted rape took place on December 27 last year in the new mega mosque, also called Hamad Bin Khalifa Civilisation Centre in Copenhagen.
The 47-year-old told the boy that he could try to drive the truck, then grabbed the boy’s arm and led him to the bathroom, where he locked the door.
There he exposed the boy to an assault, although the boy said ‘No’ and ‘Don’t’ and shortly after the child’s brother cried up and knocked on the door.
Prosecutors will during the trial claim that the boy is entitled to a compensation.

(Quoted from above) – “..The 47-year-old is now charged with attempted rape or other sexual assault and on Tuesday he met for the Copenhagen City Court, where he might not be sentenced to prison because of his mental state..”
So essentially, this Muslim man possesses the mental faculties to commit child-rape, but lacks the mental faculties to serve a sentence for child rape.
At last check, not much intellect is required for sitting behind bars for a crime committed.
If he is proven guilty in a court of law, he needs to be behind bars, for his own safety.
If he is not, this 10-Year-old boy will receive his justice.
A new trial will be held ‘..on the streets..’

Around 80 Valmiki families in Rampur have announced to embrace Islam in order to “save their houses from demolition”. Five of them have even started an indefinite hunger strike against the government’s plan to widen the roads in Topkhana locality, as the municipal body said, by clearing the “encroachments”.
The police have registered a case against 86 members of the Valmiki community for staging an agitation against UP Urban Development Minister Azam Khan, after protests by SP workers.
The issue began on April 6 when municipal authorities marked the houses for demolition at Topkhana locality. SP’s district unit office is located on same road and the civic body is also constructing the multi-storey ‘Gandhi Mall’ in the same locality.

“We held the agitation as Valmiki community are living in the locality for 60 years and our houses are in danger. Now, they don’t want us to live near the beautiful mall as our houses are spoiling its beauty,” Eklavya Valmiki, who is named in the FIR, told The Indian Express. He is also an office bearer of Valmiki Basti Bachao Sangarsh Samiti, which is leading the agitation.
Left with “no option”, the affected families have announced that they would embrace Islam on April 14 on Ambedkar Jayanti, if the conversion helps them save their homes. “If that is the guarantee when our houses can be saved we will become Muslims. There is no other option. The roads in Muslim locality is quite narrow but our road is being widened,” Eklavya claimed. The Valmiki organisation has also issued a press statement in this regard.
Police authorities took serious note of slogans against Azam Khan and transferred seven policemen of the local police station to reserve police lines.
Azhar Ahmed Khan, Chairman Nagar Palika Rampur, said, “We are just removing encroachment from government land. We will take legal action. It is just pressure tactics. One becomes Muslim from heart. It is an RSS ploy,” he alleged.
The Islamic State has released a new 11-minute video called “We Will Burn America” that calls for supporters to attack the American homeland and promises another 9/11.

At this juncture I would note the New York Times’ front page article on December 29 that described how America’s top war fighters, namely Special Operations Command, freely admit that they don’t understand the ideology driving ISIS and other Islamic terror groups:
WASHINGTON — Maj. Gen. Michael K. Nagata, commander of American Special Operations forces in the Middle East, sought help this summer in solving an urgent problem for the American military: What makes the Islamic State so dangerous?
Trying to decipher this complex enemy — a hybrid terrorist organization and a conventional army — is such a conundrum that General Nagata assembled an unofficial brain trust outside the traditional realms of expertise within the Pentagon, State Department and intelligence agencies, in search of fresh ideas and inspiration. Business professors, for example, are examining the Islamic State’s marketing and branding strategies.
“We do not understand the movement, and until we do, we are not going to defeat it,” he said, according to the confidential minutes of a conference call he held with the experts. “We have not defeated the idea. We do not even understand the idea.”
General Nagata’s frustration is shared by other American officials. Even as President Obama and his top civilian and military aides express growing confidence that Iraqi troops backed by allied airstrikes have blunted the Islamic State’s momentum on the ground in Iraq and undermined its base of support in Syria, other officials acknowledge they have barely made a dent in the larger, longer-term campaign to kill the ideology that animates the terrorist movement.
You can call in all the marketing executives and Harvard academics all you like, but when the Obama administration — meaning the entire U.S. government – as a matter of established policy refuses to acknowledge the ideology and intentions that our enemy publishes IN ENGLISH in the form of videos, audio recordings and magazines, and actively prohibits anyone in a government department or agency from discussing or speaking about said ideology, you really are beyond hope. And so is America.
