Australian Wearing Cross Beaten By Muslim Gang Shouting ‘F*** Jesus!’

Australian Wearing Cross Beaten By Muslim Gang Shouting ‘F*** Jesus!’

Christians in Sydney, Australia, are being advised to hide their crosses after an Arabic-speaking gang shouting “F*** Jesus!” attacked a couple on a train while transport officers looked on from a “safe space” and did nothing.

The Sydney-based Daily Telegraph – a News Corp outlet unrelated to the Telegraph Media Group newspaper of the same name – reports the couple were attacked while riding the train through “Muslim enclaves” in south-west Sydney.

Mike, who asked for his surname to be withheld for fear he might be targeted, said that four men of Middle Eastern appearance ripped his cross from his neck, stomped on it, and rained kicks and punches on his face, back, and shoulders. Two women attacked his girlfriend when she tried to protect him.

Five uniformed transport officers watched the attack take place but failed to intervene, Mike claimed, leaving the police to meet the train at a later station.

“I was born in Australia of Greek heritage,” Mike told the Telegraph. “I’ve always worn my cross. For [them] to rip it off and step on it has to be a religious crime … It’s not on to feel unsafe in your own country.”

Mike went to Greek community leader and former Sutherland Shire Council deputy mayor Reverend George Capsis, who believes Christians in Sydney face growing persecution at the hands of Muslim gangs, about the attack.

“This is not an isolated incident,” said Rev Capsis, who explained that Mike was the fourth Christian to have come to him about a religiously-motivated attack in just the last six months.

“There are gangs of these young fellows of Muslim background who have been harassing people they identify as Christian … You don’t hear about it because no one’s reporting it.”

Like Mike, the three previous victims who went to Rev Capsis said they were assaulted around public transport in the south-west of the city.

“It’s like their territory,” he said. “They don’t want Christians or other types of infidels there.”

The minister believes that the problem has to be “nipped in the bud” but, in the absence of any robust action from the authorities, he can only advise Christians to hide their faith in the presence of Muslims, so they do not feel “provoked”.

“People like Greek Orthodox carry a big cross,” he explained. “I tell them to be practical and if they’re in those areas and wearing a big cross and a group of young guys comes, hide it in your shirt. Why provoke it?”

A police spokesman said: “The incident [had] prompted police to remind the community that any bias-motivated crime will not be tolerated.” He said the incident was still under investigation.

Sydney Trains defended the transports officers who stood by as the attack took place, telling the Telegraph their main responsibility is tackling fare evasion and that they are trained to observe from a “safe space” if passengers are assaulted.

“Why are ticket inspections deemed more important than passenger safety?” commented Telegraph journalist Miranda Devine.

“Surely, if taxpayers fund dedicated Transport Officers to ride the trains all day, they should be authorised to do more than just observe crimes and call police. Anyone can do that.”

Rev Capsis believes that, “If this keeps up, someone will be hurt.”

Nanny Bloomberg vows millions for assault on the 2nd Amendment

Nanny Bloomberg vows millions for assault on the 2nd Amendment

Liberal billionaire Michael Bloomberg has vowed to spend $25 million through his anti-2nd Amendment Everytown for Gun Safety group to derail congressional efforts to pass national concealed carry reciprocity legislation.

Currently a mishmash of state and local gun laws often make it difficult for American concealed carry permit holders to know where they may find themselves in hot water for carrying a self-defense firearm.

And in jurisdictions where lawmakers have opted to use concealed carry restrictions as de facto bans on 2nd Amendment, travelers who wrongfully believed their out of state permits valid for carry while traveling— or other who have mistakenly traveled into anti-firearm territory with a firearm in tow— have on more than one occasion found themselves being prosecuted harshly to send a message.

With Republican control in Washington and in many statehouses throughout the country, conservative lawmakers have been working on legislative changes that would make it harder for these types of situations to occur.

Legislation introduced in both the House, Rep. Richard Hudson’s (R-NC) Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, and Senate, Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-TX) Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, for example would require states to honor outside concealed carry permits.

Critics of the legislation argue that it would essentially eliminate popular gun control efforts in liberal enclaves by making every jurisdiction in the U.S. subject to the gun laws of the most pro-2ndAmendment regions in the country.

Bloomberg’s eponymous news company published an editorial pushing that line of thinking last month, the author of which groaned: “Every state would be required to honor concealed-carry permits issued by any other state, no matter how shabby (Hello, Florida!) or nonexistent (11 states require no permit) its process is.”

But supporters of the 2nd Amendment-strengthening measures see things differently.

As the National Rifle Association has pointed out:

It’s easy to see what the real source of opposition is. The same states that severely restrict carry by their own residents also refuse to recognize non-resident permits. These include California, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island.

It’s not that the permitting standards of these states are any more effective in screening out dangerous applicants. It’s that concealed carry permits in those states are treated as the exclusive domain of the wealthy and the connected. The idea that “common” people would have the same rights simply offends the ruling elite’s sense of entitlement.

Bloomberg’s efforts to derail the push are already well underway. According to a report in POLITICO, his organization is in the process of hiring dozens of staffers to assist leaders in harshly anti-gun regions in pushing back against conservative efforts to force compliance with the 2nd Amendment.

“This is a line in the sand on this issue, there’s no question about it. The NRA wants to normalize carrying guns in public. It’s not where the American public is,” Everytown president John Feinblatt told the outlet. “We’re putting people on notice today that we’re watching … and that we expect to hold people accountable.”
