I think now we can truly say we have heard them all!
“Religion of Peace” following students from a Catholic university are now expressing outrage because when Christmas time comes, the campus is decorated for the Christmas season, imagine that. They want Islamic holidays to receive the same attention even though they represent just a small fraction of the entire student population.
Loyola University Chicago which is a well known Catholic University where 60% of the students are in fact Catholic and 40% are a mixture of other religions, including other Christian denominations, Jewish, along with a very small percentage of Muslims.
Awww, how cute, they have their women well trained!
Religious Holidays Aren’t Represented Equally on Campus
Students of Loyola’s Muslim Student Association celebrated Eid al-Adha, known as the Feast of Sacrifice, with a dinner on Sept. 8 in the Damen Student Center.
It’s that time of year again, and Loyola has decked out its buildings with decorations for the holiday season. But Christmas gets more attention on campus than other religious holidays.
Although Loyola fosters a space for non-Christian religions to practice their faith — such as in the Damen Student Center’s second floor of Ministry Offices for Muslim, Hindu and Jewish students — there is a lack of public festivity compared to Christmas, such as decorations and activities of other religions’ holidays the entire student body could be part of.
Roman Catholicism is the largest religious group on campus, according to Loyola’s undergraduate admissions’ latest report. The report said the 2016 first-year class identified as 60 percent Roman Catholic and 40 percent other — Jewish, Hindu, Muslim, Protestant and Eastern Orthodox.
Sajid Ahmed, a 19-year-old Muslim student and prayer coordinator for the Muslim Student Association (MSA), said although the atmosphere of the Christmas season brings him happiness, he wishes Muslim holidays were just as prominent.
Christmas is a Christian holiday, but is observed by many non-Christians, too. Muslims, however, celebrate two major religious holidays: Eid al-Fitr — a religious holiday celebrating the end of Ramadan (the month of fasting) — and Eid al-Adha, known as the Feast of Sacrifice.
Eid is celebrated on different dates each year because the Islamic calendar follows a lunar cycle, as opposed to the more globally used solar cycle. However, Eid al-Fitr usually occurs mid-June and Eid al-Adha occurs toward the end of August.
Like Christmas, the Eids are celebrated differently among various cultures, but they traditionally begin with morning prayers and end with family gatherings. Muslim homes in the United States also put up lights and decorations, while Muslim-based countries include those lights and decorations on their streets.
So far, in honor of the Christmas season, Loyola has put up lights and trees in various campus buildings. The university participated in its Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony Nov. 28 in the Damen Student Center, which included Santa Claus, an ice rink, hot chocolate and art decorations.
But the Eid is celebrated only among Loyola Muslim students themselves, which includes a morning prayer service and a dinner, according to Ahmed. Decorations aren’t hung on campus buildings nor activities hosted by the university.
Last year, because the Eid fell during the school year, Ahmed said he had to continue his day with classes after the prayer.
“Eid [at Loyola] is a bit dampened just because you have to go about your normal routine along with Eid,” Ahmed said. “At home it’d be a big family thing, dress up and go to the mosque. We’d spend the day together and celebrate … compared to that, college Eid has been less.”
Ahmed said the lack of celebration impacts international students and students from out of state the most.
“The atmosphere [in Muslim based countries] is a lot different than [in the United States] it’s like Christmas here,” Ahmed said.
Omer Mozaffar, Loyola’s Muslim chaplain, said he helps Muslim students request time off to celebrate with their families by asking students’ professors to accommodate for the holiday, which professors usually grant.
But because this isn’t always possible for students with a strict school schedule, Ahmed said the university could instead be more festive for Muslim students who stay on campus.
“For someone who lives far away and doesn’t have the opportunity to meet up with family, I would say making Loyola’s Eid as festive as possible would be great so that [Muslim students] can feel connected with their heritage and with their religion,” Ahmed said.
Demographics within the university might be the reason the university doesn’t celebrate religious holidays to the extent of Christmas.
With about 800 Muslim students at Loyola, including international students, according to Mozaffar, there may be a lack of exposure.
“I think if the leadership is exposed to the Muslim voice, the voice who wants to make campus more festive for other holidays, I think that’s definitely one step,” Ahmed said.
Bryan Goodwin, associate director of the student complex, said demographics don’t guide the decorations during the holiday season.
“I don’t think [demographics] ever come to our minds in terms of the decisions that we make with Christmas,” Goodwin said. “I think what guides it … doesn’t have to do with faith, it has to do with that most common sort of feeling [of the season].”
With other religions in mind, Goodwin said the university tries to be as general as possible with its decorations, including banners that say “Happy Holidays” as opposed to “Merry Christmas.”
Goodwin said they’d be willing to incorporate as many religions during this holiday season and even during individual times, if those religious groups requested it.
“We feel that we do a good job at the student center of allowing other faiths to [join the holiday season],” Goodwin said. “We pride ourselves on wanting to make sure we’re aware. We always lend ourselves the conversation.”
Mozaffar also said he doesn’t think the Loyola administration would be opposed to putting up decorations for Muslim holidays, but the dates in which the Eid falls under makes it difficult to address because it happens toward the beginning of the school year. Mozaffar also said the MSA hasn’t proposed decorations either.
Ahmed said he still hopes Eid could become more festive at Loyola, though he isn’t confident.
“Will there be Eid celebrations on a scale of a Christmas tree? Demographically, I doubt it’s going to happen just because the prevalent holiday celebrated from the student body at Loyola is Christmas,” Ahmed said. “But if Eid was celebrated at the scale of Christmas, I would be so happy.”
For now, many Muslims on campus, including Mozaffar and Ahmed, enjoy the holiday season.
“It’s contagious happiness,” Ahmed said. “I don’t celebrate Christmas itself, but I respect that this is a time of happiness for people, so I enjoy it, too.”
One holiday celebrated during the season is Bodhi Day, a Buddhist celebration of enlightenment that occurs Dec. 8.
At Loyola, Bodhi Day is recognized by some members of the Hindu Students’ Organization (HSO).
Recognizing smaller holidays like Bodhi day is important to Loyola, which desires intellectual diversity, according to Shweta Singh, associate professor in the school of social work and adviser of HSO.
“People should at least know about [other holidays],” Singh said. “They’re smaller festivals, but they’re not small to the people celebrating them.”
Singh said it’s the responsibility of both student organizations representing other faiths and cultures and the university to publicly celebrate as many religious holidays on campus as possible.
One of the Muslim students who is also a prayer coordinator for the terror-tied Muslim Student Association, Sajid Ahmed, stated that he likes the Christmas decorations around campus, but wished Muslim holidays were just as prominent. He added that the entire campus is invited to a huge Christmas tree lighting ceremony, while Muslim students have to celebrate in private without seeing the campus transformed into a Middle Eastern wonderland. Um, We’ve seen what a “Middle Eastern Wonderland” means and let’s just say most of us are very fond of keeping our heads attached to our bodies.
Out of a total of 16,673 students for the 2017/2018 academic year, only around 800 Muslims are currently enrolled at Loyola. That’s less than 5%. Yet, they want their own violent traditions to be represented equally. Because we are all well aware by now that it is part of their plan. They come to our great freedom loving nation, they take advantage of our idiotic generosity and instead of being grateful and keeping their big Islamic mouths shut, they complain and try to impose their Satanic Cult on the rest of America.
Please share if you agree American is a Judeo/Christian nation and that’s the way it should remain…..

BREAKING!! Mob Of Muslim Migrants Just Unleashed Massive Attack On Towns!!
THEY’RE GOING AFTER SPECIFIC TARGETS
Leftists in America and around the world have been busy telling people that Muslim migrants and refugees will enrich cultures. Islam enthusiasts claim that by allowing Muslims into the western world, that they will somehow assimilate and no longer be driven to terrorize, honor kill, marry children, or murder gays. So far that has not been the case. Many of the Muslim migrants and other immigrants have no desire to assimilate into the civilized western culture. Instead, they intend to destroy the very culture that America has built. This has been seen multiple times, yet the leftists continue pushing for mass migration despite public outcry. Sadly, another town has fallen victim to this dangerous mentality as they witness their culture ripped apart in the name of diversity.
There is a reason that President Trump wants to slow the number of refugees entering the country and it has nothing to do with racism. All over Europe, multiple news reports are emerging of refugees raping women and children, violent attacks, and let’s not get started on the numerous terrorist attacks being committed on a frequent basis. So, it stands to reason that President Trump would want to pump the brakes on allowing more refugees into America. However, leave it to the left to twist logic and make it all about bigotry or whatever other buzz word liberals are using this month to inflame their followers.
We continue fighting against the flood of illegal immigration, and Muslim refugees in our country and others do too. Sadly, Europe has primarily been taken over by an invasion of migrants who refuse to act responsibly and humane. The Muslim migrants continue invading and demanding that the country they flooded changes to their way of life instead of the guests assimilating into the culture of the host country. Migrants have invaded Germany and now they have taken their demands to a drastic new level by destroying historic churches and replacing them with mosques.
Good things are easily destroyed, but not easily created.

“The 19th century Church of St Lambertus in Immerath, Germany, has been torn down despite public protests, as mosques and Islamic centres multiply across the country.
The huge building, which was “notable for its double towers and neo-Romanesque design”, according to the Catholic Herald, was demolished by the RWE mining company to make way for an opencast lignite mine.
St Lambertus and the farming village surrounding it was bought out by RWE some years ago, with the church being formally deconsecrated in 2013.
Villagers have been relocated to a new site, and provided with a new church built “according to a modern design”.
The demolition of St Lambertus comes as Islamic religious structures are spreading across Germany.
This process has accelerated over recent decades to keep pace with the large and steadily expanding Turkish community, but was turbocharged by Chancellor Merkel’s decision — enacted on fairly dubious legal grounds — to suspend Germany’s border controls and invite refugees in unlimited numbers in 2015.
Wealthy, Wahhabist Saudi Arabia was famously reluctant to imitate the open door policies of much of Western and Northern Europe — but did offer to build some 200 mosques in Germany to help accommodate the ‘New Europeans’.”
Is anyone surprised that this is happening in Germany? For years, the gates to the country have been open wide and Muslim refugees have flooded in. The migrants were generously provided with a place to live and thousands of dollars in welfare thanks to the taxpayer’s money, but that isn’t enough.
Before we linger further down the road, it is important to mention that this has been the goal of Muslim migration the entire time. The progressive left is not very concerned with the lives of the supposed “poor unfortunate” refugees, and there’s a particular reason for that. If the left cared then why are they not opening their doors wide open for the Christian refugees from many of these war-torn areas? The answer is simple, they do not pose a threat to American or European culture and they would respect the laws of our land since the Christian faith teaches to recognize the rule of law.
The only way any of this will stop is for the people to begin to push back and not allow this to continue by holding more protests and voting out those that own liberal ideology. The war is winnable, but it requires dedication and sacrifice to regain our freedom and abolish those who seek to destroy us.

BREAKING!!! They Just Tried To ARREST MUSLIM Mayor!! HELL YEAH!
GO TRUMP GO!!!
After years of the progressive left pushing their anti-American will onto the conservative people we are finally pushing back, and it is about time. For the better part of a decade, we have seen how these liberal policies do more than then good and instead of continuing to allow it to happen the tide is turning. For instance, right here in America we banded together and elected Donald Trump who is busy dismantling the destructive Barack Obama legacy brick by brick and that spirit of conservatism has made its way overseas as other countries are beginning to fight for their homelands too.
And, that patriotic spirit took on a life of its own when a group of right-wing Londoners marched and interpreted Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan during his speech trying to arrest him.
Mayor Sadiq Khan is a real piece of work, but don’t try and tell that to the bleeding heart liberals out there that love him oh so much. The left props Khan up as a beacon of hope to every country around the world that he is what progress looks like, and the rest should follow suit. However, these progressive liberals fail to see the damage this Muslim mayor has caused his city and now the people of London are sick of it and fighting back.
A couple of examples of Khan’s atrocious policies began early last year when London was plagued with a series of horrific terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of dozens of innocent bystanders. Instead of Khan pledging a hardline stance against radical Muslims, he made excuses for the acts saying that this was “part and parcel of living in a big city.”
While many on the left bought this line of thinking from the Islamic mayor others have not and are making their voices known. During a recent speech over the weekend concerning gender equality, Khan was interrupted by a small number of demonstrators from a recently formed right-wing group called the White Pendragons.
When the group walked into the assembly, they announced that they were there to arrest Khan saying, “Ladies and gentlemen, we’re here today to make a non-violent, peaceful citizen’s arrest.”
Another man in the small group shouted, “No to the EU” and another displayed the American flag.
The audience was slightly confused, and some began to slow-clap while others harassed the members of the group. Several officers then tried to remove the patriotic Londoners, but they refused to leave, and one person began to quote the Magna Carta.

Here is more from Express:
Mr. Khan’s speech at a Fabian Society new year conference was suspended for several minutes due to the incident.
Police eventually managed to lead the demonstrators, believed to be from the White Pendragons, out of the venue.
The protestors held up United States flags and called for Mr. Khan to be arrested, saying power had gone to his head
A spokeswoman for the Fabian Society confirmed to Express.co.uk the speech had been marred by what she described as “far right” protestors.
The protestors not only threatened to make a citizen’s arrest of the London mayor but also Sir Keir Starmer, the shadow Brexit secretary, and the panel’s chair Kate Green MP as well as general secretary Andrew Harrop.
In video footage of the incident one man could be heard saying: “Ladies and gentlemen, we’re here today to make a non-violent, peaceful citizen’s arrest of those being named.
“They are Sadiq Khan, Keir Starmer, Kate Green MP and Andrew Harrop.
“We stand under common law jurisdiction. If you touch us you will be done for common assault. Do not touch us. We’re not leaving, I’ve paid for a ticket.”
Audience members started to heckle and slow-clap, during which security appeared.
Amid chants of “scum,” Ms. Green said: “I can assure you nobody is leaving and when the police arrive you will be able to talk to them.
“Those who who would like to speak to the police can do so when they arrive. those who want to have a discussion about the future Labour government can stay in this hall.”
The protest was apparently against comments made by the Mayor of London about Mr. Trump’s plans to cancel his trip to the UK.
The group entered the conference moments before Mr. Khan was due to make his keynote speech.
Their attempts to eject the protestors for the disruption were initially met with aversion from the protesters, one of whom could be heard saying: “We stand under Common Law jurisdiction.
“If you touch us, you’ll be done for common assault. Please stand back, do not touch us.
“We’re not leaving, we’ve paid for a ticket.”
He then accused the Fabian Society of “subverting” the constitution.
It is about time that the people of London began to push back against the progressive left, but it will take more than just a few people to make it happen. Hopefully, more people will wake up and join in before their entire country is lost forever and no one can help them.
BREAKING!! It Just Happened To Every Muslim In Michigan!
IT’S ABOUT TIME!
Michigan has become a hotbed of hate as Muslims have been allowed to take over much of the state and impose their “religious rights” on everyone who was there before them. After years of this infiltration, fueled in large part by Barack Obama’s refugee program and the town of Dearborn becoming the Middle East of Michigan, citizens have had enough. The entitled ride of thinking they can take over has just come to an abrupt end with the rude awakening they just faced by one brave individual leading the charge of making the state American again.
The nature of the Islamic religion does not allow Muslims to assimilate into Western culture — they want to dominate it since everything America stands for is counter to their beliefs. Michigan has systematically been forced to bow down to Islam under the pressure of our previous president who herded thousands of refugees into their state and allowed one town, in particular, to become unrecognizable as an American city — Dearborn — which looks more like the Middle East with its predominately Muslim population of approximately 103,000, according to WXYZ.
Muslims’ plan is world domination as that’s what their holy book preached for them to achieve. Key to that plan is the implementation of Sharia Law which they try to slowly establish under the radar here in America, without anyone realizing it before it’s too late. Wise to their disguise is Michigan Representative Michele Hoitenga who isn’t taking a backseat to political correctness and just got proactive about stopping Muslims in their tracks with a nasty surprise she just slapped them with.
With a new president in charge, states are starting to feel empowered to take assertive action against Islam in America, as was seen this week by what Hoitenga who just proposed a bill to ban Sharia Law.
“Michigan residents would be banned from using other countries’ laws in court under a bill proposed by Rep. Michele Hoitenga, R-Manton, according to an email obtained by MLive.
In an email sent to state lawmakers seeking co-sponsors on Monday, Hoitenga said her bill doesn’t specifically mention Sharia Law, but wrote that it would include the religious law association with Islam.
“If you have not heard by now, a doctor in Detroit is being charged with operating an underground clinic that actively engaged in genital mutilation on young girls, essentially practicing a fundamentalist version of Sharia Law,” Hoitenga wrote in the email.”
Hoitega’s timing couldn’t have been more important as she saw first-hand the horrific results of Islam and Sharia Law in her own state last week when a female doctor was arrested for what she had been doing to Michigan girls who were not Muslim. Federal prosecutors accused 44-year-old Muslim Dr. Jumana Nagarwala of performing female genital mutilation on unsuspecting little girls in her Detroit-area E.R.
As expected, Hoitega faces an uphill battle with this bill in getting it past state Democrats who must not see a problem in disturbing crimes like Dr. Nagarwala’s who was forcing the sickest part of her religion on little girls. Hoitega wants to prevent more of this from being acceptable by law, which shouldn’t be up for debate since it’s completely contradictory to the U.S. Constitution, which liberals love to ignore.
Had this been a measure to prevent any other religion from gaining dominance over people, Democrats would be demanding that it pass and wreaking havoc on city streets if they were denied.
We reported before that Michigan is under a “siege” of Muslims as was captured by an undercover journalist with a video camera.
A siege is currently taking place slowly and quietly, making a casualty of one city at a time. The first city to fall is Hamtramck, Michigan. But soon after it will be Dearborn. Michigan. And before we even know it, the whole nation will surrender our values, morals, and freedoms in the name of “humanity” and “tolerance.
Hamtramck residents have elected a Muslim majority to the city’s six-member city council, symbolizing the demographic changes that have transformed the city once known for being a Polish Catholic enclave.
In Tuesday’s election — with six candidates running for three seats — the top three vote-getters were Muslim, while the bottom three were non-Muslim. Two of the Muslim candidates, Anam Miah and Abu Musa, are incumbent city councilmen, while newcomer Saad Almasmari, the top vote-getter, also was elected. The seat of another Muslim incumbent councilman, Mohammed Hassan, was not up for re-election, and incumbent City Councilman Robert Zwolak came in fifth place.
Some believe the city is the first in the U.S. with a Muslim majority on its city council. Four of the six council members will be Muslim: three of them of Bangladeshi descent and one Yemeni.
“Hamtramck has made history,” said Hamtramck community leader Bill Meyer. “The election was far from close, with the three Muslim winners each gaining over 1,000 votes, while the other three candidates garnered less than 700 votes each.”
Councilman Musa, who came in second place, told the Free Press that he will work to represent everyone in the city regardless of background.
“I’m a very good Muslim,” said Musa, an immigrant from Bangladesh. “I try my best to pray five times (a day), but when I get elected, every single ethnic votes for me, not (only) the Muslim vote for me, but Christians, every single ethnic group, African-Americans, Polish. I’m a good friend of the Polish.”
“I represent every single citizen in Hamtramck,” he said. “I’m serving all city of Hamtramck.”
Formerly known for its Polish population, Hamtramck is now about 24% Arab (mostly Yemeni); 19% African American; 15% Bangladeshi; 12% Polish; and 6% Yugoslavian (many Bosnian), according to U.S. Census figures.
The percentage of residents who are Muslim is unclear since the U.S. Census does not ask about religion. Estimates of the Muslim population range from one-third to more than one-half of city residents.
Almost all of the Yemeni Americans in Hamtramck are Muslim, while the growing Bangaldeshi-American community in Hamtramck has Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists. The city has a Bangladeshi Hindu temple and Bangladeshi mosques.
On Friday, Gov. Rick Snyder attended the opening of Bangla Town, an area that will celebrate Bangladeshi-American culture in Hamtramck and bordering Detroit neighborhoods. About 41% of the city are immigrants, the highest percentage among cities in metro Detroit. Pope John Paul II, who was Polish, visited Hamtramck in 1987; a statue of him commemorating his visit is in a city park.
Three of the Muslims on Hamtramck’s City Council are of Bangladeshi descent, while Almasmari is of Yemeni descent. The council’s only other Arab-American Muslim in its history was Abdul Algazali, who died in February.
The issue of Islam has sometimes come up in recent years as the Muslim population grows. After contentious debate, the city allowed in 2004 the Muslim call to prayer to be broadcast publicly five times a day from mosques through loudspeakers.
The call to prayer has drawn complaints from residents who say it’s loud and intrusive, waking them up early and bothering them. City Council candidate Susan Dunn, who came in fourth place, raised the issue during the campaign, prompting a response from Almasmari during a city council meeting last month.
“We all want to live peacefully and respectfully,” he said to the council during the October meeting, according to a video he posted to his Facebook account. “Our special thing is … the diversity in this town.”
Almasmari said the call to prayer “is not as loud as (Dunn) thinks.” Moreover, if “we are considering the call to prayer as noise,” then so would “the loud music all night long while we are sleeping.”
“We as Muslims respect our neighbors and we don’t like to bother anybody,” he said. “As the Prophet Mohammed said: he who believes in Allah and the last day, let him not harm his neighbors.”
Meyer, who is not Muslim, said that Muslims in Hamtramck “have helped bring stability, security and sobriety while lessening the amount of drugs and crime in the city.”
