Ramadan Threat

Islamic State has called on its followers to launch an ‘all-out war’ on the West during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which begins on Saturday.
The call comes after the deadliest Ramadan on record last year when more than 400 people were killed and 700 injured in various attacks around the globe.
In a statement posted on YouTube, the Islamic State called on their “brothers” to attack “infidels” in the West.
“Muslim brothers in Europe who can’t reach the Islamic State lands, attack them in their homes, their markets, their roads and their forums,” read the statement.

And it said those who committed atrocities would receive their reward in the after-life: “Do not despise the work. Your targeting of the so-called innocents and civilians is beloved by us and the most effective, so go forth and may you get a great reward or martyrdom in Ramadan.”

This week’s deadly attack in Manchester, which saw 23 people killed including suicide bomber Salman Abedi, was claimed by Islamic State.
Last year there were several notable attacks during Ramadan, including the killing of 49 people in a mass shooting at a gay nightclub, Pulse, in Orlando, USA. Another 50 people were injured.
Also that month, 45 people were killed at Istanbul’s main airport.

 And there was also a shocking incident in France when an Islamic State member stabbed to death a policeman and his wife in front of their young child.
The final global body count during Ramadan was 421 dead and 729 wounded.

Mullica FEMA Maps

Presentation: Jay Sciullo, Township Engineer / FEMA Maps:
Mr. Sciullo reported in 2014 the Governing
Body amended Chapter 131, Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance to be in compliance with the NJ Department
of Environmental Protection Best Available Data. He stated in 2015 the City of New York submitted
information to FEMA and those changes will effect coastal regions. He stated FEMA is now requesting
communities to adopt the preliminary maps. Mr. Sciullo stated by adopting these maps and participating in the
program will assist homeowners in flood insurance costs, recovery monies and future grants. He reported in
Mullica there are 20 properties coming out of the flood hazard area and 47 going in, noting we are on the lower
end in the County. Mr. Sciullo stated if you do not have a mortgage you are not required to have flood
insurance, but stated we should encourage residents to maintain the coverage to keep the dwelling
grandfathered. He stated FEMA is requesting Committee’s consensus to adopt the maps. He further explained
the preliminary maps are currently be utilizing for construction regulations, but not for insurance purposes until
adopted. Mayor Brown entertained a motion to update the maps in compliance with the new standards; so
moved by Mr. Hagaman seconded by Mr. Walther. RCV: Yeas: All voted yes.

Europe will be a Muslim Continent

Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Germans have failed to grasp how Muslim immigration has transformed their country and will have to come to terms with more mosques than churches throughout the countryside, according to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung daily.
“Our country is going to carry on changing, and integration is also a task for the society taking up the task of dealing with immigrants,” Ms. Merkel told the daily newspaper. “For years we’ve been deceiving ourselves about this. Mosques, for example, are going to be a more prominent part of our cities than they were before.”
Germany, with a population of 4-5 million Muslims, has been divided in recent weeks by a debate over remarks by the Bundesbank’s Thilo Sarrazin, who argued Turkish and Arab immigrants were failing to integrate and were swamping Germany with a higher birth rate.
The Chancellor’s remarks represent the first official acknowledgement that Germany, like other European countries, is destined to become a stronghold of Islam. She has admitted that the country will soon become a stronghold.
In France, 30% of children age 20 years and below are Muslims. The ratio in Paris and Marseille has soared to 45%. In southern France, there are more mosques than churches.
The situation within the United Kingdom is not much different. In the last 30 years, the Muslim population there has climbed from 82,000 to 2.5 million. Presently, there are over 1000 mosques throughout Great Britain – – many of which were converted from churches.
In Belgium, 50% of the newborns are Muslims and reportedly its Islamic population hovers around 25%. A similar statistic holds true for The Netherlands.
It’s the same story in Russia where one in five inhabitants is a Muslim.

Muammar Gaddafi once stated that “There are signs that Allah will grant victory to Islam in Europe without sword, without gun, without conquest. We don’t need terrorists; we don’t need homicide bombers. The 50 plus million Muslims (in Europe) will turn it into the Muslim Continent within a few decades.”
The numbers support him.

"Missing in NJ" Event

The event, called "Missing in New Jersey," is hosted by the State Police Missing Persons Unit and will offer family and friends of the missing a place to gather, connect and learn from each other, but also an opportunity to bring their loved ones home.
From 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, the state-wide event will feature speakers, members of local and state law enforcement and experts, and also opens the floor for families to present new evidence, State Police Sgt. Joel Trella said.
People with long-term missing loved ones — anyone who has been missing for more than 30 days — are asked to bring two biological relatives of the missing person, police reports, dental and body X-rays, photographs and any other identifying documents. Anything to keep the case alive, or that could possibly provide a lead, he said.
