A mosque situated about an hour’s drive from the nation’s capital recently held a ceremony to honor a radical Islamist who murdered a beloved political figure in Pakistan for publicly chastising the Muslim country’s blasphemy laws and supporting a Christian woman. The facility, Gulzar E. Madina Mosque, sits in the Maryland suburb of Pikesville, roughly 50 miles from Washington D.C. and a dozen or so miles from Baltimore.

A Pakistani digital news publication covered the outrageous celebration and published a detailed account, including pictures and speeches delivered by radical clergy.

The event is officially known as an “Urs”, a Muslim celebration to commemorate the death anniversary of saints. In this case, the Maryland mosque was honoring an Islamist assassin named Mumtaz Qadri who shot the governor (Salman Taseer) of Punjab province in 2011 for speaking out against the nation’s abhorrent blasphemy laws. Qadri was the governor’s bodyguard and he shot him 28 times in Islamabad’s Kohsar Market in broad daylight, according to an international news report.

He was charged with terrorism and murder by an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan and was hanged in 2016. The execution ignited violent protests throughout Pakistan, where Islamist groups hailed Qadri as a hero. That’s hardly surprising for an Islamic south Asian country with an official law that bans the use of derogatory remarks about the holy prophet Mohammad. Violators are punished with death or life imprisonment.

But nearly 12,000 miles across the Atlantic, in the land of the free and the civilized, it’s downright unacceptable that these atrocities are praised. Nevertheless, that’s exactly what occurred at the Gulzar E Madina Mosque in Maryland earlier this week. In a Sunday “Urs” commemoration attended by dozens of people, including children and teenagers, the radical Islamist assassin was honored. The event had been advertised in the largest Urdu newspaper in the U.S., the Urdu Times, and a large crowd turned out for the festivities.

Among them was a New Jersey-based Islamic scholar named Syed Saad Ali who referred to Qadri as surpassing all warriors and blasted the crowd for not helping him while he was in jail, kissing the noose in love for Prophet Mohammed. “Qadri did everything for us and for the love of Islam and we could not even stand by him,” the fiery scholar told the crowd. “People say Islam teaches peace…I say Islam teaches us ghairat (honor). Who will now stand up?” Ali also glorified another Islamist assassin named Tanveer Ahmad, who stabbed a fellow British-Pakistani man to death in Scotland for posting blasphemous statements on social media.

Also, delivering the pro terrorist rhetoric at the U.S. mosque was a Baltimore-based imam named Ijaz Hussain, who said Qadri was not a terrorist and whoever says “we are with you O prophet cannot be a terrorist.” He proceeded to denounce American Muslim groups, such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), for failing to act against those who commit blasphemy and praised free speech in the U.S. for allowing the terror-praising powwow to take place.

An unidentified speaker, whose photo is included in the article, took the podium and said this: “Whoever disrespects the Holy Prophet Muhammad is worthy of death, and even if disrespects indirectly he is still worthy of death. Even if someone asks for forgiveness it is not acceptable.”

It’s disgraceful that this sort of support for terrorist acts is glamorized and praised in the United States. Undoubtedly, eight years of Obama administration policies protecting Muslim rights and downplaying the connection between Islam and radical terrorism caused a lot of damage. Obama launched a government-wide Muslim rights initiative that forced federal agencies to go out of their way to accommodate Muslims and avoid offending them by, among other things, caving into their demands involving law enforcement anti-terrorism training considered offensive.

Read a Judicial Watch report on that here. Last year a Homeland Security Advisory Council recommended eliminating divisive Islamic terms like “jihad” and “sharia” to avoid “us versus them” in government anti-terror programs.

Angela Merkel was a progressive hero when she allowed over a million Syrian refugees into Germany, but now she has to make some changes.

Merkel is calling for a burqa ban wherever “legally possible”. This is a complete 180 in some people’s eyes, but she is facing incredible backlash from her citizens after the decision to welcome the refugees in such large numbers.

Merkel welcomed the Syrian refugees last year, and now she is saying the full Islamic veil known as a burka or burqa is “not appropriate” in the Germany anymore.

The German leader also said that there would not be a repeat of last year’s influx of immigrants.

“A situation like the one in the late summer of 2015 cannot, should not and must not be repeated.”

The decision is coming as a shock to some, but not to the citizens of Germany.

Merkel is running for another two-year term and she needs to win back some favor in her country as the leader of the Conservative party. One way to get the people back on her side is to do a burqa ban.

Despite a surge in sex crimes near migrant camps, and a sharp rise in terrorist attacks, Merkel’s motivation seems to be politically motivated.

The burqa ban may or may not work at stopping some of the violence, but as a political move, it will help her numbers greatly.

Merkel has seen her approval-rating peak at 74% in the spring of 2015, and then she let in almost a million refugees in the same year. Her numbers dropped significantly.

By the end of 2015 she was at 52%. In 2016 her low reached 46% and now is hovering around 50%.

She needs to find a way back into the spotlight and she feels that a burqa ban is the way to do it. We’ll see if she is right.

Do you think Merkel’s burka ban will help her get re-elected? Let us know in the comments below.

If you are Hindu and kill a Catholic priest, then the news will give all the details, but they won’t if the terrorist happens to be Muslim.

The European Union has ordered British press to not to report if the terrorist is a Muslim.

Freedom of speech is dying quick in the world and the EU is leading the charge.

The demand was in a list of 23 “recommendations” to the press of Britain and some for the laws of the land.

It is no wonder that the UK decided to leave the European Union over the summer, but the process isn’t immediate.

The Syrian immigration crisis is turning Europe upside down and there are violent protests happening in places like Germany. Coincidentally, Germany decided to take in over a million refugees.

Right now the EU is trying to control the UK and forcing their will on the country due to the Brexit vote.

In leaked emails and documents, George Soros mentioned using the immigration crisis to destabilize Europe in order to need a “world power” to step in.

There is no secret that George Soros wants a global government through the UN, but what he is allegedly doing is playing with fire.

The crisis in Europe is causing the EU to tell Brittan that it can’t report honestly.

The UK might be the last representation of free speech in Europe, but if the EU has its way, then a free press will be the latest victim of terror.

How does it make you feel that the EU is trying to hide the identity of terrorists? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Days before the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history Obama’s Homeland Security secretary became the highest ranking government official—and first sitting cabinet member—to highlight a convention held annually by a radical Muslim group with extremist origins.

The Indiana-based nonprofit is called Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and it was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of Hamas and Al Qaeda. ISNA was a co-conspirator in a huge case involving an Islamic charity (Holy Land Foundation) that provided support to a foreign terrorist organization, mainly Hamas.

ISNA conferences often feature contentious speakers, including renowned Islamists and advocates of terrorism. Among them is Imam Warth Deen Umar, who referred to the 9/11 hijackers as martyrs that were secretly admired by Muslims and has called for violent jihad.

At one ISNA convention Umar portrayed the Holocaust as punishment of Jews for being “serially disobedient to Allah,” according to a research conglomerate recognized as the world’s most comprehensive data center on radical Islamic terrorist groups.

The nonprofit, Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT), published a disturbing report on ISNA that documents its radical ideology and conference speakers throughout the years that include “some of the world famous Islamists and advocates of Jihad.”

About a week before the 15th anniversary of 9/11, Obama deployed Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to ISNA’s annual powwow in Chicago. The appearance likely amounted to a slap in the face to many Americans, especially survivors of the 2001 attacks.

Johnson’s speech lasted about 22 minutes and he basically said ISIS/ISIL isn’t Islamic, that Islam is a religion of peace and that Islamophobia is the same as McCarthyism. In a press release announcing the appearance, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) writes that Johnson will discuss the Obama administration’s “continued commitment to build bridges to Muslim American communities, and encourage Muslim Americans—particularly youth—to continue to fully participate in American society.”

Johnson didn’t exactly receive a warm reception and was booed repeatedly, especially as he exited the stage. He told the crowd that a group of terrorists is attempting to hijack their religion and that he and Obama “refuse to bend to the political pressure to call terrorism Islamic extremism.”

He went on to say that “we know that ISIL, though it claims the banner of Islam, occupies no part of your religion, a religion founded on peace.” Then Johnson proceeded to compare the discrimination and vilification suffered by Muslims to the plight of African Americans, in particular to “tar you with a broad brush of suspicion.”

Johnson proclaimed that the bullying and physical attacks experienced by Muslims nationwide are familiar to him as a black man. “I look out at this room of American Muslims and I see myself,” he said, adding that theirs is a similar struggle to the one his African American ancestors fought to win acceptance in the U.S.

clock boy

The young man known as clock boy made a clock that looked a lot like a bomb is now suing the school for accusing him of making a bomb.

When 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed started his freshman year at MacArthur high School in Irving Texas, he wanted to impress his teachers.

Supposedly he made a clock out of left over electronics from his father’s cell phone store. He took the clock into school to show his teachers, but they thought it was a bomb and the school called the police and detained the young man.

The Muslim boy was released and never charged, but the event got national attention and the young man was invited to Facebook by Mark Zuckerberg and even met president Obama.

That didn’t stop his family from moving to Qatar shortly after meeting the president, due to better education opportunities and to avoid the treats the family received in Texas.

Now the next step is for the family is to sue his hometown for violating the young man’s civil rights.

Despite bringing a clock into school that looked remarkably like a bomb, Ahmed places all the blame on the schools and the town for his treatment.

This lawsuit comes on the heels of a letter the family sent to the school district and the city last year demanding $15 million or they will sue.

They did not get the $15 million and now they are taking it to court.

There is no evidence that the school did anything wrong. Teachers are supposed to speak out when they see something that doesn’t look right. A clock that looks like a homemade bomb is something that the teacher should investigate.

The case won’t move forward until the fall, but check back with Liberty News Now for any updates.

Do you think the city will end up being found guilty and pay the young clock maker? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Californians like to say that as California goes, so goes the nation. If true, parents in California and across the nation need to listen up.

At a time when Christian prayers are banned, Christmas carols censored and even “Moments of Silence” are considered violations of student civil rights, one social studies teacher at a taxpayer-funded school in Orange County, California infuriated some local parents by forcing her seventh grade class to not only learn, but sing, a song praising Islam.

To add insult to injury, the teacher wrote the lyrics and used “Fight Song” by pop star Rachel Platten for the music – a song so popular with kids that Platten’s video has been viewed more than 97 million times worldwide as we go to print.

The singing event happened at the Spring View Middle School in Huntington Beach. Here’s a sample of the lyrics for the song entitled: “This is their fight song…” “spread Islam now song.”

“Like a sandstorm in the desert, sending camels into motion,
like how a single faith can make a heart open,
they might only have one god,
but they can make an explosion.

And they don’t really care,
If no Jews of C’s believe
Cause they still have
A lot of others to reach

Islam…Allah’s on the way
They will preach them loud tonight
Can you hear their voices this time?”

Nichole Negron, a parent who led the protest against the song, voiced her anger over the lyrics during public comments at the Ocean View School Board meeting earlier this week. According to CBS Los Angeles, Susan Negron, Nichole Negron’s mother also spoke saying:

“I believe that by singing this song, the children feel comfortable believing that maybe Allah is the only god, and maybe that they should start following him.”

Advocates countered by pointing out that the public school social studies curriculum for Huntington Beach seventh graders included studies covering the world’s big religions including Islam, Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism.

Nichole Negron was unmoved saying that part of her son’s Islam lesson included an illustration of a stick-figure guy proclaiming: “Believe in Allah! There is no other god.”

In a statement that many thought might include an apology and a pledge to end the practice, school district superintendent Carol Hansen suggested that the Islam lesson set to a pop song wasn’t wrong, it was just poorly timed. In her statement, Hansen said:

“It was unfortunate that the lesson on Islam ended just prior to the tragic world events on Friday, Nov. 13.” “It was not the intention of the teacher to incite anger or offend.”

Then she issued a non-apology apology saying:

“I apologize on behalf of the district if the song used in the World History lesson may have offended anyone…” and that the teacher (who was not identified) did not mean “to incite, anger or offend.”
