Hearing to Block New Sanctuary Cities Law to Be Held Monday in SA

Breaking from Newsmax News Hub

The San Antonio Express-News reports that opponents of Texas’ so-called sanctuary cities bill will try to convince a San Antonio federal judge Monday to put the law on hold before it goes into effect Sept. 1. Lawyers for eight Texas cities and counties, including San Antonio, Austin, the border communities of El Cenizo and Maverick County and several advocacy groups, will argue that U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia should block Senate Bill 4, which Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law last month. Described by critics as the most restrictive piece of state immigration legislation in the last five years, it’s the first major piece of legislation passed during the presidency of Donald Trump, whose Justice Department on Friday filed a statement of interest saying it supports the law. Lawyers for both the plaintiffs and the state of Texas are expected to present oral arguments and live witness testimony that will last all day. Garcia has asked for additional briefing after the hearing and is unlikely to make a decision Monday.

Iraqi Political Commentator Ali Al-Shamari: Iraqi Regime Left Us No Choice But to Support ISIS

In a TV interview, Iraqi political commentator Ali Al-Shamari defended ISIS, saying that the Iraqi regime was “annihilating the Sunnis” and that the people welcomed ISIS “because it lifted all this injustice.” When asked by the Turkish Channel 9 interviewer about the atrocities committed by ISIS, he retorted: “If you want to talk, talk about something you understand. What you are saying constitutes slander.” Calling the Yazidis “Satan worshippers,” he justified their treatment at the hands of ISIS, saying: “the early Muslims did the same” and “this is our religion.” The interview aired on June 1.

 

Ali Al-Shamari: “It is mandatory to instate the shari’a. The [Arab] countries that rule according to a secular system are illegitimate. This is the perspective of Islamic law.”

 

[…]

 

“The situation in Iraq is different from any other place. We are facing the annihilation of the Sunnis.”

 

[…]

 

Interviewer: “What you are saying is that the Iraqi army and the Popular Mobilization Units want to kill the Sunnis…”

 

Al-Shamari: “They are annihilating us.”

 

Interviewer: “They want to exterminate the Sunnis?”

 

Al-Shamari: “Yes.”

 

Interviewer: “So what is [your] alternative?”

 

Al-Shamari: “We have no alternative, except… As I’ve said on several occasions, we have no alternative other than the people who are fighting [the Iraqi regime]. What else is left for us to do?!”

 

Interviewer: “So the Islamic State organization is the alternative?”

 

Al-Shamari: “There is no other alternative. Who else is fighting on our side? We are being annihilated, and then you ask why we support [ISIS]?!” We are being killed! Can you blame me for wanting to defend myself and my family? Look what is happening to us. It is happening on the ground. I’ve said this more than once. They ask us: ‘Why don’t you fight the Islamic State?’ Fight the Islamic State?! That would be like taking a gun and shooting ourselves. I don’t have any choice. You’ve left me with no alternative. They want to kill me. They threaten me and do many [evil] things, and then you tell me to fight [ISIS]?! [The regime] has come to kill me!”

 

Interviewer: “And what about ISIS?”

 

Al-Shamari: “ISIS is fighting them.”

 

[…]

 

“We used to live in enclaves. There was more concrete in these roadblocks than in the separation wall built between Israel and the Palestinians. Did you know that this was the case in every Sunni neighborhood in Iraq? When the Islamic State organization came in, they brought heavy machinery and within one hour, they had removed it all. I used to live in the center of Baghdad. At 10 PM, 11 PM, or midnight, there was a curfew. When [ISIS] came in, they cancelled it. I would be sleeping in my home, and at any moment, the government forces would raid the area, take the young men, and you had to bribe your way out of prison. [ISIS] put an end to all this. So what do you expect from people? I direct this question to everybody.”

 

Interviewer: “So the people welcomed ISIS?”

 

Al-Shamari: “Yes, because it lifted all this injustice.”

 

[…]

 

Interviewer: “So ISIS shows up and says: ‘You people are oppressed, you are being killed. Let us defend you.’ But at what expense? At the expense of other people’s land, at the expense of the Yazidis, who have been slaughtered…”

 

Al-Shamari: “Are you defending Satan worshippers?”

 

Interviewer: “God forbid. What Satan worshippers am I defending? I am defending freedom and people’s right to be free.”

 

Al-Shamari: “So why are you defending Satan worshippers?”

 

Interviewer: “What Satan worshippers do you think I am defending?”

 

Al-Shamari: “The Yazidis.”

 

Interviewer: “The Yazidis may worship whatever they want. What is it to you?”

 

Al-Shamari: Let them worship. I am not saying it is my business. But you say that [ISIS] came and took the land of the Yazidis. What do you care?”

 

Interviewer: “You are justifying the killing of the Yazidis. Fine. Forget the Yazidis. Let ISIS kill them. What about others?”

 

Al-Shamari: “Look, I didn’t say that ISIS should kill them.”

 

Interviewer: “Yes, you did.”

 

Al-Shamari: “Don’t put words into my mouth…”

 

Interviewer: “The answer is ‘yes.’ I am defending the Yazidis. I am defending their right to be free, without ISIS forcing them to choose between death and Islam. This is forbidden. Allah says: ‘There is no compulsion in the religion.’ Allah also says: “Whoever wills, let him believe, and whoever wills, let him disbelieve.’ ISIS, however, says: ‘If you want to believe, you must pay me as much as I want and fight in my army. But if you don’t want to believe, I will kill you, burn you, hang you, bomb you, drown you in water, or gas you.’ Haven’t we seen what ISIS is doing?”

 

Al-Shamari: “If you want to talk, talk about something you understand. What you are saying constitutes slander. The Yazidis, like others, were offered the option to surrender and pay jizyah, or to leave the land. Didn’t the early Muslims do the same thing? Our religion tells us to do this. It is not some random invention.”

 

Interviewer: “Who is ISIS to say this?”

 

Al-Shamari: “Who else should say this? Was ISIS sent by Omar Ibn Al-Khattab, Abu Bakr, or Othman bin Affan?”

 

Interviewer: “No. They were sent by Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, an unknown figure – a man who appeared only once in a mosque, wearing an Omega or Rolex watch.”

 

Al-Shamari: “What you are saying is not true. Don’t talk about things you don’t understand. You say that a certain person is unknown, but he is unknown maybe to you. You say that [ISIS] gave [the Yazidis] a choice between Islam and death. Well, the early Muslims did the same. That’s our religion. When the Muslims conquered countries inhabited by infidels – pagans and others – didn’t they give them a choice to convert to Islam, to pay jizyah, or to leave?”

 

[…]

 

Interviewer: “The PMU considers ISIS to be heretic.”

 

Al-Shamari: “No! It considers all Sunnis to be heretic. They call us nawasib…”

 

Interviewer: “Okay, but you call them Rafidites.”

 

Al-Shamari: “Right.”

 

Interviewer: “So everybody calls everybody names.”

 

Al-Shamari: “True. But according to Jaafari jurisprudence, the nawasib are heretics, so their killing is sanctioned and their property is up for grabs.”

 

Interviewer: “So this is what the PMU is doing?”

 

Al-Shamari: “Yes, and some in the military forces.”

 

Interviewer: “So the entire army should be fought like an infidel enemy?”

 

Al-Shamari: “Of course.”

 What the man said left the Imam speechless

Please read this sent to me by a dear friend, and how true this is.

Sensible Reading………………………Please Please Read this!! Once you start reading it you get so interested it doesn’t take but about five minutes I wouldn’t ask you if it wasn’t important the friend sent this to me and it moved me so much I just feel like I had to send it on so please please read it
As it stands today, the Islamic religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in the United States, especially amongst the minority races!!

Last month I attended my annual training session that’s required for maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the training session, there was presentations by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim who each explained their beliefs.
I was particularly interested in what the Islamic had to say. So, the Muslim gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video. After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.
When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and asked:

‘Please, correct me if I’m wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that’s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?’

There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation,
he replied, ‘Non-believers!’

I then responded. So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?’
The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar. ‘He sheepishly replied, ‘Yes.’

I then stated, ‘Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine the Pope can command all Catholics to kill those of your faith or in addition, Dr Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!’
The Muslim was speechless!

I continued, ‘I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me!

Let me ask you a question:
Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me too?’

jesus_loves_you_overlooking_the_cit

You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.

Needless to say, the organizers or promoters of the ‘Diversification’ training seminar were not happy with my way of dealing with the Islamic Imam, and exposing the naked truth about the evil in Muslims’ beliefs.
Therefore, the way things are going now in the next 10 years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President!
Boko Haram had finished their depopulation of Christians in Nigeria. There are enough Muslim voters in the UK to vote in the Prime Minister.  In the next 5 years, by 2019, there may be no Christian candidates to stand for elective post.

Think about your children’s world. I think everyone in the WORLD!!! should be required to read this, but with the careless attitude of most believers, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it to relations and friends! This is your chance to make a difference…

Please, for Christ’s sake, pass it on! Thanks.
