    Hundreds pray in the streets and close grocery stores in protest at Trump’s travel ban

    MORE than one thousand Yemeni American store owners have closed their businesses today and travelled to Brookyn Borough Hall to pray, rally and support those affected by President Trump’s controversial travel ban.

    In what is being described as the ‘Bodega Strike’, thousands of Yemeni immigrants are demonstrating against Trump’s far-reaching US entry ban.
    From The Express
    The Spanish word ‘Bodega’ is literally translated as ‘wine shop’ and is New York slang for convenience stores, and organisers of the strike claim there around around 6,000 Yemeni-owned Bodegas across the city.
    The closures started at midday (5.00pm GMT) and will continue for eight hours.
    A Facebook page set up for the strike states: “This shutdown of grocery stores and bodegas will be a public show of the vital role these grocers and their families play in New York’s economic and social fabric.
    “During this period, grocery store owners will spend time with their families and loved ones to support each other; many of these families have been directly affected by the ban.”
    Debbie Almontaser, a strike organiser and board member of the Muslim Community Network, said: “Originally, we considered starting the shutdown at 8am, but the grocers they made it clear they wouldn’t be willing to close if that meant their regulars wouldn’t get their morning coffee.
    “Even when their lives have been turned upside down, they refused to disrupt the lives of the very people they serve daily.”
    Sulaiman Alaodyi, a 24-year-old cashier at the Best and Tasty deli in the borough of the Bronx, said this was the first time the store had closed its doors since it opened nine months ago.
    “We want to send the message that we’re here.
    “We’re going to go out and support all our brothers and sisters who are detained in airports and in other countries that can’t get back.
    “This is just not fair.”

    I'm confused as to why they want to bring attention to themselves. Do they not understand that this is probably not in their best interest? Now Americans know from the news and TV there's all these people in New York from Yemen where we just took out the Al Qaeda headquarters and have the USS Cole circling.

    This is only the beginning, what we see in EU looks very much like the Brooklyn picture demonstrating power by sticking your butt up in the air in public, in masses too - how uncouth! USA SHOULD BAN THE MUSLIM STREET PRAYERS NOW! GET OUT OF MY WAY OF FREE PASSAGE, A PUBLIC STREET.

    The Islamic State did not have in mind just a few jihadis crossing from Libya: it also emerged last February that the jihadis planned to flood Europe with as many as 500,000 refugees. Now the number is shooting well beyond that in Germany alone. Of course, not all of these refugees are Islamic jihadis. Not all are even Muslims, although most are. However, no effort whatsoever is being made to determine the refugees’ adherence to Sharia and desire to bring it to their new land. Any such effort would be “Islamophobic.” Yet there are already hints that the Islamic State is putting its plan into effect: jihadis have already been found among the refugees trying to enter Europe. There will be many more such discoveries.

    Eight hundred thousand Muslim refugees in one year alone. This will transform Germany, and Europe, forever, overtaxing the welfare economies of its wealthiest nations and altering the cultural landscape beyond recognition. Yet the serious public discussion that needs to be had about this crisis is shouted down by the usual nonsense: the Washington Post Wednesday published an inflammatory and irresponsible piece likening those concerned about this massive Muslim influx into Europe to 1930s Nazis ready to incinerate Jews by the millions. Hollywood star Emma Thompson accused British authorities of racism for not taking in more refugees – as if British authorities haven’t already done enough to destroy their nation.
