Judge Jeanine Pirro – Largest Sunspot In 25 YRS, Scientists Worried Flares Could Wipe Out Power Grid
Hat Tip: BB
Our presence here in the land goes back more than 3,000 years. We prayed for millennia, while separated from the land, to be able to return. Once we did return, our people sacrificed in order to build and protect the land.
And now, insanely, the Jew who is passionate about our rights to the land and our attachment to the land is viewed as a “radical right winger,” a troublemaker.
The world certainly sees nationalist Jews this way: If only these Jews would relent already, then Israel could reach an agreement with the Palestinian Arabs and there could be peace. But the fanatic and troublesome right-wingers keep getting in the way.
Far worse, there are Jews who think the same way. A good percentage of those who don’t live in Israel certainly do. Most painfully, and shamefully, there are Israeli Jews who have forgotten who they are. (I will come back to this at some point, hopefully.)
The reason that Jews who seek Jewish rights are seen as troublemakers is because the Arabs tend to negotiate via violence and threats. (You don’t give me what I want, this is what I’m going to do.)
A tendency towards violence is inherent in the Arab Muslim culture. We are not looking at a modern phenomenon, but at a situation that has persisted for centuries. We see it in the way children are treated in this society, and the fact that it is considered permissible if not necessary sometimes to kill women for the sake of family honor. (Not enough to disown them or send them away. Such women are killed by close relatives.) It is well known among those who deal with these issues that terrorists who kill Jews then mutilate their bodies. Relief and satisfaction derive from gruesome expressions of violence?
Facing this is not politically correct, but is essential. The true roots of deep Muslim Arab anger, expressed via overt violence, are not not “the occupation” or the lack of a Palestinian state. Social scientists find it in such things as sexual abuse of young boys (also common in the culture); this perpetuates violence as the boys grow up angry.
But now the situation is being exacerbated by Palestinian Arab leaders, so-called, who use this tendency towards violence for political gain, inciting their people rather than seeking to reduce tensions in the street. They are manipulating the crowds. For the Muslim Arab culture that is so prone to violence is also an honor/shame culture. The perception that they have been “dissed,” treated with disrespect, foments anger and then violence. And the messages being delivered by the likes of Mahmoud Abbas to the Palestinian Arabs is precisely this: that they are being treated with disrespect by Israel.
I will add here that this culture is not big on compromise, either. To compromise is to forgo part of what you are entitled to, and this diminishes your honor. The essential underlying ideology of Islam is that it is meant to supersede the earlier monotheistic religions, not live cooperatively with them.
What happens then – because so many fail to understand what is going on – is that the Jew who seeks his or her rights is seen as “causing” Arab riots and attacks. How much more peaceful it would be, if only these Jews would stop insisting on things that irritate the Palestinian Arabs.
Sounds crazy/unreasonable/simplistic, but that indeed is what is happening. Palestinian Arabs, who are collectively bullies, are being broadly embraced anyway. Either their violence is perceived as justified, or it is simply deemed wise to give them what they want to keep them quiet.
I write this now because Rabbi Yehuda Glick – who, thank Heaven, has been given a good prognosis for almost full recovery, but still faces more surgery – has been referred to again and again in the media since he was shot as “far right,” “radical” and more. No one says, “Well, he deserved it.” But implicit is the notion that if only he, and others like him, were less passionate about the Temple Mount there would be less Palestinian Arab anger. People like Rav Yehuda are seen as stirring the unrest.

Here I would like to show you who Yehuda Glick really is, and share his words about his beliefs and the obstacles he confronts.
I said it before and reiterate it here: he is a gentle, non-confrontational soul, who would be delighted for good relations with Muslims.
He calls the Temple the House of Prayer for All Nations. This concept is built into Jewish tradition and Jewish prayer. In the days to come, all monotheistic religions are to have a share in the Temple. Isaiah 56:7: “Even them will I bring to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer; their burnt-offerings and their sacrifices shall be acceptable upon Mine altar; for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”
While he doesn’t back down from Jewish rights – indeed is passionate about our connection to the Mount – he explains this vision here, describing the possibility that the Muslim Dome of the Rock could be retained as part of the Temple, if the Muslims would be peaceful and share in an effort to cooperate:
And here he is joining in a prayer session with Arabs at the Mount:
Some radical extremist!
(With thanks to Bennett R.)
Listen here to a segment of an interview that Yishai Fleisher did with Rabbi Glick with regard to the difficulty Jews have getting on the Temple Mount:
Allow me to explore a bit of background, a picture of the situation for Jews on the Temple Mount today, and where we are going. Or should be going.
When Israel liberated the Old City and the Temple Mount in 1967, Defense Minister Moshe Dayan made a very foolish – a very bad – decision. He turned to the Muslims on the Mount – the Wakf or Muslim Trust – and told them that they would continue to manage day to day affairs there.
What he said was:
“We have returned to the holiest of our places, never to be parted from them again….We did not come to conquer the sacred sites of others or to restrict their religious rights, but rather to ensure the integrity of the city and to live in it with others in fraternity.”
The worst of what he did was to rule that there would be no Jewish praying on the Mount, so as to not upset the status quo there.
I am not at all certain that Dayan’s motivation in doing this was proper, and it is clear that, as he was not a religious Jew himself, he saw the Mount more as a site of historical interest than one of on-going religious concern. But I give him the benefit of the doubt in this respect: he didn’t understand Muslim Arab mentality or how matters would likely evolve. This seems to be the case, as he refers to living with others in fraternity.
Over the years Jews have petitioned for the right to pray on the Mount. This issue was last brought before the High Court in 2006, at which point it was said that only if “there is concrete information about actual danger to life” should Jewish praying be forbidden. But ultimately, the matter was left in the hands of the police, who prefer to prevent Jewish prayer so that it is not necessary to send in reinforcements to contend with Arab rioting.
This is what Yehuda Glick was referring to.
But how outrageous that in our land, where we protect the rights of all religious groups, it should be impossible for Jews to pray in the place that is holiest to Jews.
Over the last few years, there has been movement by Muslim groups to libel Israel, in order to arouse the people: The totally fallacious claim that Jews are about to destroy the Al Aksa Mosque on the Mount is put out regularly.
But now it has gotten much worse. Instead of saying that the Jews are attempting to pray where they shouldn’t or co-opt the Mount, there is a battle cry that the Mount is totally the heritage of the Muslims and that Jews have no place setting foot on it. Declared Abbas:
“It is our sacred place, al-Aqsa [mosque] is ours, this Noble Sanctuary [as Muslims refer to the Temple Mount] is ours. They have no right to go there and desecrate it.”
Abbas put out calls to “protect” the Mount from Jews. And then, when it was closed to everyone for a day, after the attempted assassination of Yehuda Glick, he called for a “day of rage,” because Muslims may never be prevented from entering the Mount for any reason. This unleashed additional violence – with the throwing of pipe-bombs at police and much more in eastern Jerusalem Arab neighborhoods on Friday night and Saturday.
And last week, before the conference on the Temple Mount, at which Yehuda Glick spoke right before he was shot, Palestinian Media Watch says:
”…former PA Prime Minister and PLO Executive Committee member Ahmed Qurei (Abu Alaa) issued a press release in which he condemned ‘the danger’ of the conference organized by Glick and warned of ‘extremist biblical plans encouraging settlers and extremist Jews to carry out large-scale invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and calling on the entire Jewish nation to invade the Mosque.’ He also stated that Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque are ‘undergoing one of the most dangerous periods since the beginning of the Israeli occupation’ and that it necessitates ‘immediate intervention in order to protect [Jerusalem] and rescue it from the threat of Judaization.’”
Talk about inciting violence and exacerbating the situation!
At the same time, there has been a growing sense of outrage among religious Jews that prayer on the Mount is not permitted. Members of Habayit Hayehudi have been advancing legislation that would allocate different periods of time and different areas for Jewish and Muslim prayer on the Mount. This proposal, which is altogether fair and equitable, is modeled after the pattern of shared praying time for the Machpela [Cave of the Patriarchs] in Hevron.
It will not succeed at this point, however, because our prime minister will block it. His rallying cry has been one of calling for “restraint” and maintaining “the status quo” on the Temple Mount.
“The status quo” position can be interpreted in two respects: To Israelis, he is saying that he will not permit the advancement of legislation for praying on the Mount, and to Arabs, that he will not permit the co-opting of the Mount by Muslims in a way that excludes Jews.
Today in his statement to the Cabinet, he made this quite clear:
”I have ordered that massive reinforcements be brought in and that additional means be used in order to ensure law and order in Israel’s capital. It could be that we are in a lengthy struggle; however, we are determined to be successful.
“We will certainly oppose all systematic and continuing attempts by Islamic extremist elements to stir up unrest. They would like to set a religious fire in Jerusalem and thereby ignite the entire Middle East. The place they are most determined on is the Temple Mount.
”We will not allow this to happen; neither will we alter the worship arrangements and the access to the Temple Mount that has been customary for decades. We are committed to the status quo for Jews, Muslims and Christians.
”Since the time of our patriarch Abraham, the Temple Mount has been the holiest site for our people. (Traditionally the Sacrifice of Isaac was said to have taken place on Mount Moriyah, where the Temples were later built.) The Temple Mount is the most sensitive kilometer on earth. Alongside a strong insistence on our rights, we are determined to maintain the status quo. It is easy to start a religious fire, but much more difficult to extinguish it.”
What we are seeing, as clear as day, is a determination by the Muslim Arabs to use the Mount to undermine Israel. I understand Netanyahu’s unease at the moment. Now even the Arab League has weighed in with threats. Arab League deputy chief Ahmed Ben Hilli has called on Arabs and the international community “to put a stop to these practices by the Israeli occupation authorities in Jerusalem. Touching Jerusalem will lead to results with untold consequences.” But these are only threats. Words. The Arab states have enough on their plates to contend with, without throwing their weight around on this issue.
And come on! We must be honest and recognize that the time of the “status quo” has already come to an end. Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, Director of the Temple Institute, says the Mount “has become a stronghold of Islam. The Arabs get tons of money just to have a presence there and intimidate Jews who dare to ascend the Mount.” (Emphasis added)
Unless we get a lot stronger on the Mount, our influence will continue to diminish, with consequences that are unthinkable.
If there is one thing the Arabs understand, it is power. If we have to break heads, we must break heads. But we must remain in control of all areas of Jerusalem, and most especially the Temple Mount. And we must go up there in ever greater numbers. Hopefully, there will be an allocation of a time and place for Jewish prayer before too much time has elapsed.
MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud) went up on the Mount this morning, as he does very frequently, despite calls from Netanyahu to cool matters. I salute him for this.

Today Mahmoud Abbas praised Netanyahu for saying he would not allow Jewish prayer on the Mount, saying it was “a step in the right direction.”
From my perspective, this means it was the wrong decision. What “step” will Abbas expect Netanyahu to take next to quell violence? There is never enough with these fighting Muslim Arabs. There will always be something else.
One other issue remains in this discussion: the role of Jordan. It is the Muslim Wakf that is in control on the Mount, at least theoretically. In 1967, that was a Jordanian Wakf. After Oslo, the PA established a competing Wakf, but today it is solidly Jordanian. That is, the Jordanians have a role in what is going on.
Their peace treaty with Israel not withstanding, they are big on threats as well, and have done everything in their power to diminish Israel influence on the Mount and surrounding area (as with the bridge leading to the Mughrabi gate).
King Abdullah has just declared that he will work against “Israeli unilateralism” in Jerusalem and there have been mumblings about Jordan breaking its peace treaty with Israel over these events.
He declared a “victory” when Israel opened the Mount on Friday, pleased to take public credit for this.
What is clear is that King Abdullah is shaky on his throne. He is contending with a host of radical forces at his border, thousands of Syrian refugees inside of his border, and pressure from Palestinian Arabs. He plays it in a manner that he believes will best protect him. Consequently, Netanyahu has always done a very careful balancing act with Jordan. It is in our interest that the king should not fall. Under the façade of multiple challenges by the king, there is a good deal of cooperation. The irony is that Jordan absolutely does not want a Palestinian state at its border, even as it calls loudly for one.
However, what I did last night was go to the text of the 1994 Peace Treaty Agreement between Israel and Jordan. With regard to this issue, it says (emphasis added):
PLACES OF HISTORICAL AND RELIGIOUS SIGNIFICANCE
1. Each party will provide freedom of access to places of religious and historical significance.
2. In this regard, in accordance with the Washington Declaration, Israel respects the present special role of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in Muslim Holy shrines in Jerusalem. When negotiations on the permanent status will take place, Israel will give high priority to the Jordanian historic role in these shrines. (This has to do with Israel not giving the PA priority on the Mount.)
3. The Parties will act together to promote interfaith relations among the three monotheistic religions, with the aim of working towards religious understanding, moral commitment, freedom of religious worship, and tolerance and peace.
Not only does this not give Jordan great power on the Mount, it would seem that Jordan has been severely remiss in meeting its responsibilities. Freedom of access to places of religious significance? Freedom of religious worship? Well, now.
I would say Netanyahu needs to take another look at how he responds to Jordan.
Housing Minister Uri Ariel (Habayit Hayehudi) has it right (emphasis added):
“I hear the Jordanians are threatening the peace agreement and [I] wonder if they have forgotten the Six Day War and the years in which King Hussein leaned on Israel. The Temple Mount and Jerusalem are under Israeli sovereignty just as Amman is under the absolute rule of Jordan. They should internalize this fact.”

THIS is the sort of talk we need to hear more of from our government.
By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
Our children are our world as parents. They are the future of our nation. Most of us would gladly sacrifice all we have and our lives for our little ones. So, why do we so readily hand their learning and their care over to those that would abuse them and trick them into being part of the greatest evil the world has ever known? It figures that the young, innocent ones would be a prime target for Islam and are what they term, ‘fertile ground’ for their broken philosophy. Between such programs as Common Core, Connect All Schools and CSCOPE, CAIR has been ensuring that the textbooks that teach our children go out of their way to teach Islamic history and to have the children indoctrinated into Islam. CAIR has even gotten textbooks in private schools, charter schools and home schooling programs to include their revisionist history.
The Islamization of the curriculum and the school room itself in American schools is thoroughly covered by Pamela Geller at Atlas shrugs in her book: Stop the Islamization of America. Do buy and read the book and then home school your children after reviewing their ordered teaching materials. You should not be surprised either that Qatar is heavily vested in all this – they fund Connect All Schools and Common Core. On October 24th and 25th, hundreds of schools, leadership teams, and teachers from across the region gathered in Dubai, to learn about the Common Core State Standards, share curricula and best practices, and network with each other. Ask yourselves, why Dubai? Surely, Bill Gates and Jeb Bush know, since they are helping to fund it as well. They are very cozy with the Islamic states – all that money and power – motivation for selling out our children and country many times over.
Across America, in over 100 schools now, in Social Studies and World History classes, the proselytizing for Islam is being pushed and hard. It does not include the 1,400 year history of Jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural genocide and enslavement, not to mention the extermination of the entire Jewish Banu Qurayza tribe of Arabia, as Pamela Geller puts it. What it does include, and what I find infuriating beyond words, is the Shahada and the Five Pillars of Islam. The Shahada is an Islamic creed declaring belief in the oneness of God and the acceptance of Muhammad as God’s prophet. It is recited to convert someone to Islam. That’s right… they are actively converting your children to their religion. Now, how do you feel about it? Then the little ones are forced to learn the Five Pillars of Islam.
Here is an example from a textbook (by the way, this has been going on for some time now in the public school system):
Jesus was mentioned once as a Jewish prophet in the first chapter and the second chapter briefly discussed the division within the Christian Church. Chapter three is dedicated completely to Islam and the story of Muhammad, with multiple quotes from the Qur’an throughout the chapter. The book even goes on to say that “. . .Muhammad revealed the purest version of God’s truth” and that Muhammad is the final prophet of God’s truth with the most complete version of that truth.
So much for separation of church and state. Evidently that only applies to other religions, not Islam. Can you imagine how confused the children must be? And those that come from Christian and Jewish homes surely know deep down this is wrong and abhorrent to their faith. The children are having to write and say the Muslim declaration of faith (the Shahada), over and over.
When Muslims force Christians to convert, they are forced to say the Shahada. The Arabic writing on the black flag of Jihad (also known as the al Qaeda flag or ISIS flag) is the Shahada. This is the mantra of supremacism and imperialism that is being forced on American school kids and their families. Children are more susceptible to conversion than adults and if pressed on it are likely to cave to make the teacher happy. After repeated exposure to the ideology, they start to get their thoughts turned around. Soon, they are indoctrinated and sucked into the philosophy, despite the teachings of their church and their parents. Face it… teachers spend a lot of time with your children. By the time a parent knows what is going on, it is too late. And by the time they are in high school, they have aligned with radicals and radical precepts throughout the religion.
A number of parents across America are beginning to wake up to the brainwashing in the schools being foisted on their children. A number of them are saying enough is enough.
Let’s start with the Marine veteran who complained about the pro-Islam bias in his daughter’s schoolwork in Maryland. He was banned from her school for objecting to said bias. It’s his child and his right – we are not the Middle East… not yet, any way.
From the Daily Caller:
A Maryland father who asked that his daughter be excused from learning about Islam in her world history class now finds himself under a no-trespass order that prevents him from setting foot on the girl’s public school campus.
The events leading to the no-trespass order occurred at La Plata High School in La Plata, Md., a small town about 30 miles southeast of Washington, D.C., SoMDNews reports, a website for three local newspapers.
The dad is Kevin Wood, a former corporal and eight-year veteran in the U.S. Marine Corps.
Wood was initially upset because he did not want his daughter, a high school junior, to participate in instruction about Islam.
He called the school district office last week, first speaking to an administrative assistant and eventually speaking to La Plata High vice principal Shannon Morris.
A school district spokeswoman, Katie O’Malley-Simpson, said Wood threatened to cause problems at the school during his conversation with Morris. O’Malley-Simpson provided no specific information about any threats the former Marine made.
“Safety comes first,” she told SoMDNews. “We don’t allow disruptions at the schools, especially if we’re forewarned of them.”
Wood denies making any threats. His version of the conversation is that he explained in no uncertain terms that he does “not believe in” Islam and wants his daughter removed from class while other students study the Muslim religion.
This Marine fought and bled for his country. He has the right to request his child not be subjected to Islamic indoctrination. I believe him when he says he made no threats. He was treated like this because he was military and because he would not comply. I suggest he remove his child from this school and find another educational venue, post haste.
The Marine is not the first, by a long shot, either. In Volusia County, Florida, hundreds protested Islamic lessons in their “World History” text, a Common Core-approved high school history textbook. It would have been thousands if all parents knew and grasped exactly what was being taught to their children in the name of Allah.
In Massachusetts, another public school got caught teaching the Shahada to students. Their textbook also celebrates Muhammad’s life. You can bet it doesn’t celebrate Jesus’ life, because you know… that would be bad.
From Yahoo! News:
Millions of students in public schools don’t understand fractions or pronouns at even a basic level but students in the oceanfront Boston suburb of Revere, Mass. are taking the time to learn all about Islam — in the most embarrassingly shallow and cheerleading way imaginable.
Part of the textbook prints the Muslim Call to Prayer, according to Boston NBC affiliate WHDH.
“I bear witness that there is no God but Allah,” it says.
The textbook portion also reverently celebrates Muhammad’s life.
“Muhammad never expected to change world,” the admiring, rah-rah textbook reads.
“Muhammad later tended sheep on the dry hills like many young Arabians,” the text explains. “Later he became a successful merchant and married a wealthy widow. However, he felt as though something was missing in his life, so he went on a retreat.”
The founder of Islam was “upset about the cruelty of his people,” the text also optimistically explains. They “killed baby girls.” They “treated their slaves unkindly.” And “Muhammad had a strong sense of right and wrong.”
One local parent, Anthony Giannino, is upset about the textbook’s treatment of the Muslim religion.
“No religion should be taught in school,” Giannino told WHDH. “It says Allah is their only God. That’s insulting to me as a Christian who believes in just Jesus only.”
“We don’t believe in Allah. I don’t believe in my son learning about this here,” Giannino added. “If my son was from another country and came here, he would have been catered to.”
The mad dad said he pulled his son out of his elementary school when he found out about the textbook’s treatment of Islam.
Other parents say they don’t see what the problem is.
“What is Muslim about? What is Christianity about? That’s what I teach at home,” parent Idalia Garcia told the Fox station. “Everybody should respect everybody else’s religion.”
The school district superintendent has since penned a letter to parents assuring them that the congratulatory statements about Islam are merely part of the district’s history curriculum.
It goes on… in California, parents are also pulling their son from a classroom at Manhattan Beach Middle School for teaching the tenets Islam:
The father said, “The audacity of this school, to think that they can sit these children down and teach ’em whatever religion they please; it’s preposterous. This is illegal, basically. You can’t teach religion in schools any more, but apparently, in this particular school, at least, that’s not the case.”
Parents said they discovered that what their children were learning about Islam was more about the tenets of the faith than the history of the religion, according to KTLA. One question asked the students to write down teachings from the Koran.
The father continued, “What I saw written in these bubbles was, ‘The one true God, Allah’ in one of the bubbles. In one of the other bubbles was ‘All people must submit to Allah,’ in another bubble. The I turned the page over and I see the five pillars of Islam.”
The parents assert that the students should be taught the history behind the religions, whether it is Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, or others, but not the tenets of the faith.
Father: “Can you imagine the outcry all over this country if children were bringing home paperwork that asked them to write down John 3:16, or asked them to write down the 10 Commandments?”
Mother: “And if it ended with the Declaration of the Faith, Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior? That’s what the equivalent, I mean, part of us, for our son? We’d be happy about that.”
Father: “But some parents may not be.”
The parents talked to the principal, but the school refused to change the schoolwork, prompting the parents to remove their son from the class. The school would not respond to questions from KTLA.
In Tennessee, the abhorrent Nation of Islam has even gotten into the schools. At least two reports have come in that third graders have received Nation of Islam propaganda:
A second parent has now come forward acknowledging their child received a Nation of Islam “handout” in a third grade class at Harold McCormick Elementary School in Elizabethton, Tennessee – contradicting claims by the school district that the document was not distributed in the classroom.
I first told you about this story on Monday. Parent Sommer Bauer told me her son’s teacher gave him a document that portrayed the presidents on Mount Rushmore as being racists.
We still don’t know how that Nation of Islam information found its way into that third grade classroom.
School superintendent E.C. Alexander refuted allegations that the Nation of Islam document had been distributed in class. He told me the document was never meant for public distribution and that the child took the sheet of paper from the teacher’s work station without her permission.
“The student (without permission) took the sheet from a “ton” of discarded teacher’s material on that table; then, the student took it home and gave it to the parent,” Alexander wrote in an email to educators after my column was published.
Supt. Alexander also posted a statement on the school district’s website. He hurled all sorts of allegations my way – words like “misleading” and “totally incorrect” and “sensational.”
Yet, he never got around to telling us what was misleading or totally incorrect or sensational. And we still don’t know how that Nation of Islam information found its way into that third grade classroom.
So what happened inside that third grade classroom at Harold McCormick Elementary School?
According to the parent, the children were separated into four groups. Each group was given two “sheets of paper.”
“The teacher held up each one and said, ‘These do not go home. These are just to use here,” the parent told me.
The Nation of Islam “sheet ” explained that George Washington hailed from Virginia, a “prime breeder of black people.” Of Theodore Roosevelt, it was alleged he called Africans “ape-like.” There were also disparaging comments made about Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln.
The parent told me that the teacher did not teach students from the Nation of Islam “sheet.” But she did hand it to the students.
This is the active Mosqueing of our schools – turning them into Madrassas. Even in Massachusetts, the home of the Boston Marathon bombing, you see a Muslim promoted to Captain in the Boston Police force and the Shahada being recited in their schools. The Saudis have bought entire public school textbook publishers — it would seem, even our children’s future is for sale. Todd Starnes of Fox News says there are over 80 textbooks across the nation teaching and promoting this bias.
Islam has slaughtered, tortured, raped and enslaved millions. As recently as the 1990s, I had never seen a hijab or a burka. I had never seen a mosque. Now they are everywhere and our schools have been infested with a violent ideology that covets the souls of our children. Allah has no place in our classrooms and these forced and subversive conversions of children are evil and despicable. Get your children out of public schooling whatever it takes. Even if you have them in private school, charter schools or home schooling, you better take the time to review their textbooks and talk to your children. Their lives and the future of the nation depends on it.
According to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement arm of DHS, 36,007 criminal illegal aliens were released into the United States in 2013. Responding to a request by Sen. Chuck Grassley, ICE provided a list of ZIP codes — not cities and states — where criminal illegals, many convicted of violent offenses including murder, rape and kidnapping, have been dumped by the administration.
I wrote a small script to convert the ZIPs into cities and states, the results of which are below. Please make sure that your families, friends, colleagues and other acquaintances are aware of these locations. Better safe than sorry.

Press release as follows (emphasis added):
Mike Huckabee, Houston 5, Tony Perkins, Pastor Steve Riggle to Hold News Conference to Preview ‘I Stand Sunday’ Live Simulcast
HOUSTON, TEXAS., October 30, 2014 — On Sunday, November 2, Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins, Gov. Mike Huckabee, Pastor Steve Riggle, Dr. Ronnie Floyd, Dr. Rick Scarborough and the Houston pastors targeted by the Mayor will hold a 4:00 p.m. CT news conference to preview “I Stand Sunday.” The live simulcast event will broadcast that evening from Grace Community Church to more than 2,500 churches and home groups across the country.
“I Stand Sunday” will provide churches across the nation the opportunity to stand with the pastors and churches in Houston, Texas who have been harassed by the city’s Mayor because they publicly challenged her efforts to advance policies that are in direct conflict with biblical morality.
The simulcast, cosponsored by Family Research Council, Vision America, Alliance Defending Freedom, and Christians Vote, will also feature Duck Dynasty’s Phil and Al Robertson, the Benham Brothers, Fox News columnist and commentator Todd Starnes among others. American Family Radio and Bott Radio are cosponsors that will provide live coverage of the event.
“‘I Stand Sunday’ is a call for Christians across the country to stand for religious freedom and stand unyielding to those who would silence the voice of Christians in the public arena,” said Family Research Council President Tony Perkins. “This was never about the subpoena of pastors’ sermons; in fact, this is about the Mayor engaging in political intimidation and denying citizens the right to vote.”
“Pastors have every right under the Constitution to speak to these issues but from a biblical perspective, they have a mandate to do so. We cannot grow silent in the face of political intimidation. We must stand up for the freedom to live out our faith free of government intrusion and monitoring,” concluded Perkins.
