The Islamic Frankenstate

Today’s news was dominated by the beheading of Steven Sotloff by the Islamic State, and the accusation by Rep. Paul Ryan that President Obama’s bad decisions had in effect created ISIS. This is a watered-down version of my assertion from a couple of weeks ago that the Islam State is a CIA/Qatar-created monster that has escaped the laboratory.

Vlad and I were discussing all this on skype a little while ago, and in our conversation I referred to “The Islamic Frankenstate”. I thought it was an amusing neologism, and in my experience, anything amusing that I ever think up has already been thought of by someone else. So I followed my usual habit and googled it, and was surprised to find zero instances.

So here it is. I get dibs on first usage, but now y’all can have it, to use as you see fit…

A Jihad Video from the Alps

Bad Gastein is a resort spa in the Austrian Alps. Jihad recently came to town when an unknown person uploaded a video recorded in Bad Gastein calling for a terrorist attack on Austria.

Here’s the report from ORF-Salzburg. Many thanks to JLH for the translation:

Uproar About Alleged Jihadist Video

An alleged jihadist video which shows Bad Gastein (Pongau) is causing agitation. A hitherto unknown war-monger is calling for an attack “on this heretical land.” Security services assure us that the video is harmless.

The quality of the video is poor, shaky and amateurish. Who authored this clip? How seriously should it be taken? On Friday afternoon, ORF Salzburg played the video for a businessman in a northern Israeli city, whose mother tongue is Arabic. He regards it as terrorist — also because of the graphics and the logo.

Is That the Sound of the Gastein Waterfall in the Background?

The gist of the spoken text is that warriors loyal to the caliph are also in the Alps and waiting for the order to attack this heretical land (Austria?). When the camera pans to the Bad Gastein parish church, the narration says that the cross on the church will soon be torn out and all heretics punished. The rushing of water in the background can be heard clearly, just as it can in the proximity of the Gastein waterfall. Experts do not believe that the spoken text has been added retroactively.

“Raise the Banner of Punishment”

An Arab who lives in Vienna translates: “We await the words of our leader in the hope that he will come to this place and raise the banner of chastisement.”

Update on the Love Jihad

Here’s some more on the Love Jihad in India. A Hindu association came up with the brilliant idea of stopping the Love Jihad by banning teenage girls from using mobile phones.

Yep, that’ll do it, all right!

Below is a report from Asia News:

Agra: Banning Hindu Women From Using Mobile Phones to Counter the ‘Love Jihad’

A committee of Vaishyas (mostly traders by caste) has made the proposal to counter alleged forced conversions by Muslims of women of other religions. For some analysts, this is the result of social polarisation in Uttar Pradesh, led by Hindu nationalists ahead of upcoming by-elections.

Agra (AsiaNews/Agencies) — The Akhil Bharitiya Vaishya Ekta Parishad (ABVEP), a committee of vaishyas (mostly traders by caste), wants to ban teenage girls and young women — especially Hindus — from using mobile phones, to save them from the danger of the love jihad.

The term love jihad refers alleged forced conversions by Muslims of Hindu and Christian women through offers of marriage in exchange of compulsory conversion to Islam.

“Such things (mobiles, internet) lead young minds to fall in the ‘love jihad’ trap,” said ABEVP national president Sumant Gupta. “We are saddened and alarmed by the rising numbers of such cases in the state, especially when Vaishya girls are involved. We have no option but to take precautions.”

In order to promote its cause, the association will send out groups of young people and women across the state to explain to teenagers the “dangers” they run.

“We will convince them politely, with love. There will be no pressure or force,” Gupta said.

The group’s statements have sparked different local reactions. For Zishan Ahmed, a post-graduate student at Baba Saheb Bheemrao Ambedkar University, reacted with dismay. “These diktats are bewildering and humiliating for youngsters of both communities,” he said.

ESW to Speak in Minnesota

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff is coming to the USA next weeks. One of her stops will be in Chanhassen, a southwestern suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Below is the flyer for the event sent out by SW Metro Tea Party Patriots and ACT! for America, Minneapolis Chapter.

*** Special Event ***

Austrian International Human Rights Activist Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff

Will speak about her efforts to protect and preserve the Universal Declaration of Human Rights from creeping Islamic Sharia that threatens our human rights and Freedom of Speech.

Monday, September 8
at The Chanhassen Recreation Center
2310 Coulter Boulevard
Chanhassen, 55317
7-9 pm

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff has represented the German branch of BPE (the NGO Bürgerbewegung Pax Europa) at several meetings over the past four years of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), at the “Human Dimension” meetings in Vienna and Warsaw, where she passionately calls for the upholding of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and rejects the concept of Islamophobia, demanding a legal definition of the made-up term.

In her presentation, Elisabeth will describe the debates with Shariah advocates at these OSCE meetings regarding human rights, women’s and religious minority rights and equal protection under the law. The OSCE community includes the United States, and in 2012 there was widespread controversy over the fact that the United States representatives to the OSCE included Salam al-Marayati, Executive Director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), advocates for Shariah doctrine.

Another Show Trial?

Geert Wilders may be facing another show trial for “group defamation, discrimination and incitement to hatred”. Mr. Wilders, the leader of the Dutch Islam-critical party PVV, caused controversy by agreeing with what most Dutch people think (if you believe the opinion polls) about the excessive number of Moroccans now in their country.

The following article was published today on the front page of the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. A translation has been made available by the PVV.

Note the political nature of the proposed prosecution — two judges have been appointed by the court to work with the media:

Court ready for Wilders
by Bart Mos

THE HAGUE, Tuesday

The court in The Hague is busy preparing the criminal trial against Geert Wilders, although the judicial authorities have not yet decided to prosecute him. The court administration wants to prevent chaos, as happened four years ago in Amsterdam.

It is generally expected that the judicial authorities will decide later this month whether the PVV leader will be prosecuted for his statement about “fewer Moroccans” during an election meeting in a pub in The Hague. Yesterday, a spokeswoman for the public prosecutor in The Hague refused to say on which date the decision to prosecute will be taken, but internally it has been rumored for some time that they are aiming for September.

Fjordman: Is Jihad Un-Islamic?

Fjordman’s latest essay has been published at FrontPage Mag. Some excerpts are below:

In Denmark in 2005, Tina Magaard — a Sorbonne-trained linguist specializing in textual analysis — published detailed research findings comparing the foundational texts of ten major religions. Magaard concluded from her data-driven analyses that

“The texts in Islam distinguish themselves from the texts of other religions by encouraging violence and aggression against people with other religious beliefs to a larger degree. There are also straightforward calls for terror. This has long been a taboo in the research into Islam, but it is a fact that we need to deal with.”

Magaard further observed that “There are 36 references in the Koran to expressions derived from the root qa-ta-la, which indicates fighting, killing or being killed. The expressions derived from the root ja-ha-da, which the word Jihad stems from, are more ambiguous since they mean ‘to struggle’ or ‘to make an effort’ rather than killing. Yet almost all of the references derived from this root are found in stories that leave no room for doubt regarding the violent nature of this struggle. Only a single ja-ha-da reference (29:6) explicitly presents the struggle as an inner, spiritual phenomenon, not as an outwardly (usually military) phenomenon. But this sole reference does not carry much weight against the more than 50 references to actual armed struggle in the Koran, and even more in the Hadith.”

Betrayed by a Muslim in Marriage

Last Thursday we posted a report by Yog about the “Love Jihad” — the Muslim practicing of abducting Hindu girls and forcibly marrying them — in India. As part of his report, Yog linked a Hindi-language video of an interview with a young Hindu woman who had married a Muslim.

Vlad Tepes had the video translated. Many thanks to Yog for the timing, and to Vlad for the subtitling:

As you can see, this video is not an adequate example of what Yog described in his post. The young woman describes a situation that was entirely her choice.

The little girls in Rotherham who were raped and brutalized would have been thrilled to have so many choices.

The Yezidi women who were recently abducted by ISIS and sold to their “husbands” in Syria were never fortunate enough to be able to make the same decisions this Hindu woman did.

Yes, we can sympathize with her, because she made bad choices and suffered as a result. But I’d like to see video interviews with Hindu women who were truly coerced into conversion and marriage. I’m certain there is no shortage of examples.

I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing

MC returns with a sardonic look at equality, harmony, and other magic ponies of the Modern Multicultural New World Order.

I’d like to teach the world to sing…
by MC

In perfect harmony. Didn’t we get that thrust down our throats?

But it does raise some questions, such as: Who is the ‘I’ there? In answer to my own question, we now have a major religion, a powerful religion, that worships the god of ‘equality’ and ‘harmony’ (but of course the believers are more equal than non-believers, and those believers are the ‘I’ because they define the harmony), but those who create disharmony are the enemy, because creating disharmony is the ultimate in crime and terrorism.

At best ‘equality’ is an assumption based on moral relativity. It means that one must shut one’s eyes to history and limit discernment to the here and the now. Yesterday Hamas fired missiles at Israeli children; today Israel killed Gazan children in retaliation. It’s simple, stupid: those Joooos create disharmony so they are in the wrong; Muslims are the long term victims of Judeo-Christian exploitation (enforced inequality); therefore we must restore equilibrium by blaming the Joooos wherever we find them etc., etc.

In the science lab in school we had old-fashioned balances in wooden cases for weighing substances and things, and using the balance was quite a skill in itself. After each addition of weights or substance, one had to wait for the swinging to subside. To get to a state of equilibrium could take hours so one learned to average out the swing to save time.

As the weights added got smaller and smaller they became harder to manipulate as well, and the tiny ones had to be manipulated with tweezers and seemed to take on a life of their own and fight back.

It took an incredible amount of work to get a balance, so we rationalized and weighed stuff to the nearest gram, which took a fraction of the time.

In Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado there is a passage that goes:

Muslim Paedophile Pakistani Rapists

In his latest video editorial, Paul Weston minces no words about what happened in Rotherham — unlike the media reporters, the pundits, and all major political leaders, who are scared to death of mentioning JIM.

Caveat: Mr. Weston is impassioned about what is happening in Rotherham, and slips into some salty language as a result:

Paul Weston is a British-based writer who focuses on the damage done to Western Civilisation by the hard left’s ongoing cultural revolution, which seeks to destroy the Christian, capitalist and racial base of the West. He is the leader of Liberty GB, his website may be found here, and his political Facebook page here. For links to his previous essays, see the Paul Weston Archives.

It Figures…

The Baron has spent hours on the phone talking to the techies and fixers, though to no avail. Finally, he went to do the marketing for me since our vegetable situation was critical…

…and y’all know that Schloss Bodissey is at the Edge of Beyond – or rather, smack dab in the Middle, where there be monsters – so it will be a while before he returns.

I have no idea what brought us down, but there was talk of how long it takes to propagate a new something-or-other. It’s whatever all those little numbers are called. And yes, they shouldn’t let me near a computer given the level of my ignorance.

It was leprechauns in the intertubes, that’s what it was. I almost grabbed one – even had the edge of his coat – but all I have to show for my efforts is a bit of tattered green cloth. Do you think they might be lying about their purported pots of gold? Have you noticed President Obama looks a bit like a leprechaun? He’d never make the height limits, though. I can’t picture him crouched under a toadstool, can you?

In the meantime, a placeholder post to let y’all know we’re not dead. Thanks for the concerned emails, too.

An End to Phony Tolerance

The following op-ed from the Austrian daily Kurier has been kindly translated by JLH:

An End to Phony Tolerance

Which Islam do Muslims in Austria actually follow?

By Martina Salomon | August 24, 2014

By 2051, every fifth Austrian will be Muslim. The figure is already 11.6% ( up from 0.4% in 1971). Official Austria has always operated on the premise of religious co-existence. But the newest reports indicate that shockingly great swathes of the Muslim population are regressing to the Middle Ages. Their brutal attitude toward “infidels” (up to and including bestial murders), their imperialism, their repression of women and homosexuals and the dominion of religion over politics all come to them from the Koran.

In recent years, anyone who criticized or even caricatured Islam ran the risk of earning a death fatwa. Self-styled “holy warriors” are killing and dispossessing Christians all over the world. Nonetheless, Western governments have appealed for tolerance. This may come from the misinterpretation of a comment by Jesus: “But I say unto you, That you resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also.” The meaning of the Biblical episode is that Jesus is standing firm and demanding respect. We must do the same, for the sake of our culture and our values. In conversation even with educated Muslims, their contempt for our liberal society is often palpable.

The Role of the Victim as an Excuse

Muslim advocates like to play the victim card. Marginalization of their co-religionists, they say, brings on radicalization. That, however, is only part of the truth. Not a word about the fact that some immigrant groups close themselves off and overburden the educational and welfare systems. Interestingly, it is (liberal) Muslims most of all who denounce the propagation of “fascist Islam” and criticize the support it receives from indigenous parties. It was clear to see, in demonstrations for and against Erdogan in Vienna, that there are thousands of Turks from backward regions in Turkey who are easy to mobilize in our streets. But anyone who has been in Istanbul has also seen the other side of Turkey with its dynamic, well-educated upper class, and many women in top jobs.

“We Have Come to You With Blood”

In an ISIS video released yesterday, a mujahid threatens the kuffar with fire, bloodshed, and death.

Many thanks to ritamalik for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

A note from the translator:

I translated the first speech by the guy in the beginning. After that the music starts, and the rest is a poem he recites in praise and prayer for the fighters of Fallujah. It was too hard for me to understand everything that he was saying in that poem and it was not important. It was just an “artistic touch”, so to speak, which bizarrely enough these ISIS guys seem to be so fond of!

This is as much as I could understand, because he was shouting too much and the music took over.

So yes, the ISIS guy was threatening the unbelievers and the Jews. Is it important? It is nothing new. But the more people hear what these Jihadis are up to straight from the horse’s mouth, the better. At least later when the threats come to pass they cannot claim they didn’t know!
