The more belligerent the Mohammedan Turks become, the more Â the EUro dhimmies bend over:
Thirteen democratization projects worth more than 1.5 million euros have been approved by the European Union within the framework of Turkey’s EU membership bid.
Project themes range from social justice to social inclusion to protection human rights. They are aimed at including nongovernmental actors in raising public awareness and helping initiate the necessary reforms.
The project awarded the most funding is titled “Promotion of Human Rights for Sex Workers and Transgender people” with a grant worth 140,000 euros. The projects have already been launched and will last on average 16 months.
What could be more important than “Human Rights for Sex Workers and Transgender people?”
“Protection of human rights” in this context means almost certainly protection for Islam, “hate speech” laws, enforcement of sharia (“blasphemy laws”) and preventing scrutiny of the Islamic belief system. “Social Justice” is Commie code Â for Â Socialism.
Hague reaffirms support for Turkey’s EU bid
The UK’s newly appointed foreign secretary, William Hague, has said the UK will continue to strongly support Turkey’s bid to join the European Union.
Hague wrote an article for Europe’s World, a tri-annual Europe-wide policy journal, to be published in June, in which he discussed how the new British government saw its EU policy. “The case for Turkey’s accession to the EU is as strong as ever,” he stated, adding that its membership would bring certain benefits to the 27-member bloc.
I’m afraid that train left the station. Turkey can never become part of Europe, it is now firmly in the camp of Islam. Today’s Zaman

The State Department Doubles Down on the Islamist Mosque in Virginia
Yesterday IÂ noted the State Department’s showcasing of the Dar al-Hijra Islamic Center in a film about Muslim life in America â€” despite the mosque’s longstanding tiesÂ to the Muslim Brotherhood, its virulent Islamist ideology, its support for the murderous Hamas organization, its notorious Islamist imams and elders (including al Qaeda recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki), and the ties of some of its worshippers to the 9/11 attacks andÂ the Fort Hood massacre. Then, we learned that the federal government has struck a dealÂ to pay Dar al-Hijra a whopping $582K just for this year (i.e., about one-tenth what it cost the Saudis to build the place), purportedly because the Census Bureau needs work space â€” y’know, because there are like no federal facilities anywhere nearÂ Falls Church, Virginia.
Now we learn that State is doubling down. Steve Emerson’s Investigative Project on Terrorism is reported today that:
The State Department wants its next wave of diplomats to learn what Muslims in other countries think of America. To do that, it is sending a class to Anwar al-Awlaki’s former mosque in Falls Church, Va. this Sunday, the Investigative Project on Terrorism has learned.
As weÂ reported Tuesday, federal law enforcement officials view the Dar al-Hijrah mosque as home to Hamas operatives and others linked to terrorist financing and “bad orgs.” In addition, it was home to two years to Awlaki, a charismatic, American-born cleric now living in Yemen. He is considered to have been inspirational to the accused Fort Hood shooterÂ Nidal Malik Hasan, failed airplane bomberÂ Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and TimesÂ Square bomberÂ Faizal Shahzad. As a result, he may be the only American the CIA isÂ authorized by the President to kill.
Awlaki has been gone for eight years, and mosque leadershipÂ publicly disavows him, but Alwaki’s radical preaching wasÂ well established during his time there. The 9/11 Commission ReportÂ found that Awlaki knew two of the hijackers and that one, Nawaf al-Hamzi, followed Awlaki from San Diego to Virginia in early 2001, “an appearance that may not have been coincidental.”
According to a mosque invitation to its members:
“Dar Al-Hijrah will host a group of adult students from the Foreign Service Institute (college). They will be joining the diplomatic corp and will be working in largely Arab Muslim countries.
You are invited to join us for small group discussions with our guests regarding the attitudes and perspectives that immigrants from Muslims countries had about America before arriving and how their understandings have changed. Brothers and sisters, this is our chance to help these Americans understand the culture, customs and attitudes of Muslims in our home countries.”
TheÂ Foreign Service Institute (FSI) visit is an informal event organized by the students, an official said. Dar al-Hijrah was selected because it is a large mosque that is conveniently located for the group.
While not all mosque members maintain radical views, its leaders and many members have attracted law enforcement scrutiny for years. According to reports between 2002 and 2007 obtained by the IPT through aÂ Freedom of Information Actrequest, Dar al-Hijrah “has been underÂ numerous investigations for financing and proving (sic) aid and comfort to bad orgs and members.” Another report said the mosque was “operating asÂ a front for Hamas operatives in U.S.”
The rest of Steve’s report, including a description of the Dar al-Hijra heavyweights who’ve been prominent supporters of the Muslim BrotherhoodÂ and its Palestinian branch, Hamas, isÂ here. Steve also notes that Rep. John Carter, a Republican whoseTexas districtÂ includes Fort Hood, has called for the lease to be severed. Carter had some stinging words for Janet Napolitano’s Homeland Security Department: “The purpose for creating this cabinet-level agency in 2002 was to coordinate all agencies of the federal government to prevent any more radical Islamic attacks like 9-11. Eight years later and they can’t even tell a federal agency they’re renting office space from the very mosque involved with the 9-11 attacks, and that has seeded this past year’s assaults through the likes of Al-Awlaki.”
Refreshingly, some Muslims areÂ speaking up publicly against our government’s relentlessly cozy relations with Islamist elements. Hedieh Mirahmadi, who heads an anti-extremist group, complained that the State Department should expand its horizons. “They have this set of go-to people that they approach,” she said, “and they keep going back to that list…. With the controversy surrounding Dar al-Hijrah now, I wouldn’t want to send the message to the world that this isÂ Islam in America.”
