Muslim Student Supports New Holocaust

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

Our education system becomes more anti-Christian by the day. Everyone else is given permission to state their views, virtually unopposed, except Christians.

A messianic Jewish leader isn’t surprised that an Islamic college student openly admitted in a recent public forum that she supports the radical Muslim extremists’ call for a new Jewish Holocaust.

Conservative activist and publisher David Horowitz was recently the guest speaker at the University of California-San Diego. During the question and answer session of the forum, a member of the Muslim Student Association (MSA) got into an exchange with Horowitz, who asked her if she supported those who call for the extermination of Israeli Jews.

“I am a Jew,” Horowitz declared. “The head of Hezbollah has said that he hopes that we will gather in Israel so he doesn’t have to hunt us down globally. [Are you] for it or against it?” he asked.

The MSA member directly replied “for it” before the conservative activist thanked her for “coming and showing everybody what’s here” and made note of her “terrorist neckerchief.”

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, is not surprised by the Muslim student’s response.

“I have no doubt that this woman who represented the MSA is not a friend of Israel,” Markell comments. “She is supporting evil. This woman is standing by, she is defending, she is promoting, and she is identifying with evil.”

The messianic Jewish leader adds that even though the Muslim woman said she would be arrested, nothing will happen to her. “The Muslim element in these campuses have free reign to say absolutely whatever they want to say,” Markell laments. “They can be as incendiary as they wish. They know they’re not going to really be reprimanded for anything because that’s politically incorrect.”

The Olive Tree Ministries founder believes that if a Christian student had made a remark about killing Muslims, the media’s response would be much different. But in this situation, the media is keeping relatively quiet about the Muslim woman’s comments.

Cost of Illegal Immigration Rising Rapidly in Arizona, Study Finds

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

It’s shame that Arizona had to pass the laws it did. If the federal government would uphold the laws and secure our borders, it never would have been necessary.

Arizona’s illegal immigrant population is costing the state’s taxpayers even more than once thought — a whopping $2.7 billion in 2009, according to researchers at the public interest group that helped write the state’s new immigration law.

Researchers at FAIR – The Federation for American Immigration Reform — released data exclusively to that show a steady cost climb in multiple areas, including incarceration, education and health, in the last five years.

FAIR’s cost estimates – compiled for a comprehensive national immigration report it plans to release next month – include several new cost areas, including welfare and the justice system, that weren’t in previous reports.

FAIR admits that the cost to implement the new law in some of those categories, such as incarceration, will add to the economic strain on the state. But overall, it says, the loss of immigrants either from the deterrent effect of the law, voluntary exodus or from mass deportations, will help the state financially.

Also, the savings to the state will far overwhelm any fallout from boycotts (estimated at between $7 million and $52 million) being threatened in the wake of the law’s passage, according to FAIR spokesman Bob Dane.

FAIR’s new breakdown shows that illegal immigrants take $1.6 billion from Arizona’s education system, $694.8 million from health care services, $339.7 million in law enforcement and court costs, $85.5 million in welfare costs and $155.4 million in other general costs.
