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.

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.

The Burning of the Mevlana Mosque

Several weeks ago a recent addition to the Mevlana Mosque in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin was destroyed by fire. Even before the incident was judged to be arson, German politicians fell all over themselves to express their “solidarity” with victimized Muslims in the mosque’s congregation.

Today, however, the announcement of the ethnicity of the principal suspect showed that earlier assumptions had been wrong, and no “Islamophobia” was involved.

Rembrandt Clancy has translated a series of media items about the case. We’ll begin with a news report that was televised before the ruling of arson was confirmed. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

The translator notes that the incident bears comparison with the silence after the fire a year ago in the Lutheran church at Garson.

The following article from Der Tagsesspiegel, also translated by Rembrandt Clancy, discusses the determination by the police that the fire was set deliberately:

Fire in Mevlana Mosque was an Attack

27 August 2014

Having been long in question, now it is certain: The fire in the Mevlana Mosque in Kreuzberg was set deliberately, according to police investigations.

The fire in the Kreuzberg Mosque must be attributed to an arson attack, according to the assessment of the investigators. “We can now rule out a technical defect,” said Police President Klaus Kandt on Tuesday after he had visited the mosque together with the Minister of the Interior [for the City-State of Berlin] Frank Henkel (CDU). Also negligence is to be ruled out: “We are assuming an intentional act”.

Politicians demonstrate signs of Solidarity

The flames also deposited soot on the facade of the mosque. On Sunday evening the SPD chief [Social Democratic Party] and the Vice-Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel visited the crime scene and spoke of an “assassination attempt”. Also, Henkel wanted to demonstrate by his visit “a sign of solidarity”, as he put it. “When in Germany houses of God burn, it is not sufficient for the society simply to show sympathy”, said the Senator. “The society and the politicians must send a signal that such crimes must not be accepted”. The police will do everything in their power to solve the case. State security and fire experts are investigating the case in concert.

Our Nostrum

Late last year two boatloads of illegal immigrants capsized and sank in the Mediterranean Sea between North Africa and Italy, killing more than 350 would-be migrants. The two tragic incidents, coming in close succession, caused huge public relations problems for the Italian government. No one in Italy had requested that those desperate migrants pay extortionate sums to human traffickers and attempt the crossing in overcrowded rickety boats. The Italians never asked for them to come. Nevertheless, “world opinion” blamed the Italian government for its negligence when all those asylum-seekers died.

In response, the government launched Operation Mare Nostrum (“Our Sea” in Latin), whereby the Italian Navy was tasked with rescuing every single migrant who attempted to make it to Italian shores. Rescued refugees were brought to port, fed, clothed, and housed until their “asylum” applications were processed by the relevant EU agencies.

Not surprisingly, the new policy resulted in a huge surge of migrants attempting to make the crossing from Libya or Tunisia to Italy. According to the latest estimates, at least 113,000 refugees have landed in Italy since last October, which is a much higher rate of migration than any I have seen since I started monitoring the situation in the Med seven or eight years ago. In contrast, the “Camp of the Saints” crisis of 2011 — which was an unprecedented wave of migration at the time — amounted to just over 60,000 arrivals over the course of a year.

The Italian government has been complaining to the European Union and petitioning for help with Mare Nostrum ever since the operation began. The European Commission kept promising more financial help, but whatever eventually arrived never quite made up for Italy’s increased expenditures. At the same time the EC repeatedly reminded Italy, Spain, and Greece that the primary responsibility for dealing with migrants lay with the countries at the “point of entry” — that is, they were mostly on their own.

In its latest appeals, the Italian government pointed out that Mare Nostrum was costing the Italian Navy €9 million a month ($11.8 million), out of a total naval budget of €9.2 million. This level of expenditure is clearly unsustainable, and the Italians put the EU on notice that they were going to shut down Mare Nostrum unless Brussels did something.

The most recent Italian complaints (and threats) must have been convincing, because on Wednesday EU Interior Affairs Commissioner Cecilia Malmström announced that Mare Nostrum would be folded into Frontex, the EU border agency, and become “Frontex Plus”. Whether this will be more than a cosmetic change, and actually free Italy from some of the burden of mass migration from Africa, remains to be seen.

The raw figures for Italian spending on Mare Nostrum are disturbingly high. €9 million per month over the last ten months comes to roughly €90 million ($118 million). That’s about €800 ($1050) per surviving refugee.

And those are just the costs to the Italian Navy. After the navy unloads the refugees from its landing craft, the culture-enrichers must be housed, fed, clothed, and provided with asylum lawyers, all at the taxpayers’ expense.

But there’s more. Take a close look at the photo at the top of this post, and the one below:

Multiculturalism — The Final Solution

The following essay by Nick McAvelly was originally published at Partiot’s Corner in a slightly different form.

Multiculturalism — The Final Solution
by Nick McAvelly

“One belief, more than any other, is responsible for the slaughter of individuals on the altars of the great historical ideals — justice or progress or the happiness of future generations, or the sacred mission or emancipation of a nation or race or class, or even liberty itself, which demands the sacrifice of individuals for the freedom of society. This is the belief that somewhere, in the past or in the future, in divine revelation or in the mind of an individual thinker, in the pronouncements of history or science, or in the simple heart of an uncorrupted good man, there is a final solution.

“This ancient faith rests on the conviction that all the positive values in which men have believed must, in the end, be compatible, and perhaps even entail one another. ‘Nature binds truth, happiness and virtue together by an indissoluble chain’, said one of the best men who ever lived, and spoke in similar terms of liberty, equality and justice.

“But is this true? It is a commonplace that neither political equality nor efficient organisation nor social justice is compatible with more than a modicum of individual liberty, and certainly not with unrestricted laissez-faire; that justice and generosity, public and private loyalties, the demands of genius and the claims of society can conflict violently with each other. And it is no great way from that to the generalisation that not all good things are compatible, still less all the ideals of mankind . But somewhere, we shall be told, and in some way, it must be possible for all these values to live together, for unless this is so, the universe is not a cosmos, not a harmony; unless this is so, conflicts of values may be an intrinsic, irremovable element in human life. To admit that the fulfilment of some of our ideals may in principle make the fulfilment of others impossible is to say that the notion of total human fulfilment is a formal contradiction, a metaphysical chimera.”

— Berlin, Isaiah (2012-12-31). The Proper Study Of Mankind: An Anthology of Essays (pp. 237-238). Random House. Kindle Edition.

Finally, the mainstream media are beginning to acknowledge the poisonous fruits of multiculturalism. For years journalists have been afraid to speak the truth about what is happening in Britain, just as the council workers in Rotherham who were responsible for child welfare were afraid to speak the truth. And what is the truth they have been so afraid to give voice to? Multiculturalism is a failure, both as a political theory and as a matter of fact.

When the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany joined forces at the beginning of the war, Time magazine referred to the enemies of civilization as “Communazis”. Each had their final solution to the question of how human beings should live together on earth, and they were both willing to employ absolutely any means in order to achieve that end. We have seen the same mindset in government, both at a national level and in local councils up and down the land for many years now. Their final solution to the question of how we are to live is “multiculturalism”, and woe betide anyone who questioned that unproven, impossible theory.

The Soviets would as a matter of practice smear individuals who questioned the party line by declaring them to be Nazi sympathisers, and the Communazis who have been running rampant in the UK for years now have, as we all know, adopted the same policy. Anyone who questions them is immediately said to be a “Nazi”, “far right” (whatever that even means) and of course, a “racist”. The new Communazis of the UK will happily sacrifice the livelihoods and reputations of dissenting individuals in the name of their final solution.

As we have just seen, the new Communazis have been willing to sacrifice thousands of vulnerable young girls in the name of their final solution, too. In their minds, any price must be paid, if it means their final solution is to come to pass.

Vienna is Different

JLH has translated an op-ed by Andreas Unterberger about the rapid demographic changes currently underway in Vienna. The translator includes this note:

We could paraphrase Mark Twain: “There are facts, awful facts and godawful statistics.”

How typical too, that cosmopolitan centers are the first to be corrupted, because this is where the con-men, power brokers and know-it-alls go to assert themselves, while the rest of the country tries to get on with business. I wonder how fast the rest of the country would be transformed if the administration should start taking large numbers of refugees and shipping them off to unsuspecting towns and provinces. (I did not say “Obama”)

The translated op-ed from the independent information portal Vienna.at is below.

Vienna Is Different

by Andreas Unterberger

Nothing shows it more clearly than the unvarnished demographic figures: In recent years, Vienna has become a completely different city — one that is in some parts purely Balkan-Turkish. And it will become even more so in coming years. Isn’t City Hall being really short-sighted when it applauds this development?

To be sure, the tourist crowds in “imperial Vienna,” — center city — are largely from the West. Even though it is possible more than ever this summer to see women covered head-to-toe and Arabic men with their not-exactly-European-deportment.

The money-grubbing Tourist Office is ecstatic and sees no problems. Likewise our leftist ideologues. The rest of the Viennese are beset by powerful worries. An influx is always good for the ventilation of a society, to be sure, but if an influx is too rapid and intense, it leads from control over everyday customs, to the economy, to a complete tipping over and then to the collapse of the society.

Presently, Vienna differs more than ever from the rest of Austria. For instance, if more than half of the students in Vienna’s schools already speak some language other than German at home, then Viennese children — even with the addition of Germans, Swiss, Liechtensteiners (and presumably also Luxembourgers) and South Tyroleans — are no longer the majority there.

Religious Statistics in Vienna

Religious statistics are similar. In one generation, the percentage of Catholics has been halved — and that is despite the influx of almost totally Catholic Poles, Croats and Slovaks. Simultaneously, the number of people of no religious affiliation has risen sharply (even among immigrants). And, indeed, the third largest group is the Muslims, who have been multiplying exponentially since 1971. Trending rapidly, they are already 11% of the population, while the average across Europe is 6%, even though many of those countries — unlike Austria — have a colonialist past. Members of the Orthodox Church, too — mostly from Serbia — have increased more than seven-fold.

The Love Jihad in India

In India, the common Muslim practice is to kidnap young Hindu women, forcibly convert them to Islam, and then marry them (or turn them into sexual slaves). The process is known as the “Love Jihad”, and it bears a strong resemblance to the “grooming and pimping” epidemic in the UK.

An Indian commenter named Yog left some useful information about the Love Jihad in the comments on Tuesday’s news feed. The post below is adapted from his comment.

There are many many good reports on this phenomenon, but nearly all in Hindi (and many are documentary shows running one to two hours long, but all of those are in Hindi). The problem is that English language media in India is controlled by a small number of powerful groups, and ALL of them are left-secular leaning. In India that means whitewashing any crime done by Islam (be it historical, or more current). You could say that is one of the top planks on which the left-secular movement stands. So they simply deny or play down any instances of “Love Jihad” — this being the name given to it by Hindu organizations.

Here is a website with links, not very good (go to parent of this URL for more links).

Here are statistics confirmed by police investigations. In the states of Kerala (Muslim population 30%) and Karnataka, over 3000 Hindu and Christian girls have gone missing over the past three years. Some are never found again. Some resurface as Muslims.

Usually the girl goes missing. A few months later, her parents receive a letter (with picture of her) saying, “I have converted to Islam. Don’t look for me anymore.” In many cases, the girls are used in the terrorism pipeline, as couriers etc. Some end up as sexual slaves for Jihadi warriors.

Some Hindu organizations have done video documentation of cases where the girl actually tried to run away etc. For example, one is here. All the material is in Hindi, though…

I myself have worked with an organization that helps Hindu girls in this situation, and so know ground details. The numbers and the methods of “disappearance” are really quite staggering. In the region of Marathwada (in state Maharashtra) alone, each year 300 Hindu girls go missing in this way. Police will not act because of political pressure to deny this phenomenon. Parents cry and cry till the tears dry away. They run pillar to post for someone to help find and bring back their daughter. All they have is a letter saying “I have converted.”

Rape is a part of this process.

Hijab Corps

Below is the latest newsletter from the Tennessee Council for Political Justice.

Newsletter #141 — Suleyman Exposed: Hairline and All

Remziya Suleyman, director of the American Center for Outreach (ACO) blames being self-conscious about wearing her hijab in Tennessee on the attitudes of Tennesseans:

“I know, every day, as a Muslim, as a woman, and as an immigrant, people will look at me differently. When I go out wearing my hijab I know there will be stares and comments.”

Actually, very few people care about Suleyman’s hijab, which she says she began wearing in 2008, right before she began lobbying Tennessee legislators. A 2007 op-ed written by leaders of the Muslim Canadian Congress asserts that the “hijab has nothing to do with morality” but has become a tool for both political and religious operatives.

Suleyman’s co-Islamist, rabid Jew-hater, friend and colleague, CAIR lawyer Zahra Billoo confirms that she also loves the hijab for this reason:

Tweeting from Switzerland several days ago, Suleyman said:

Sharia-adherent Islamic State jihadis (IS), agree with Suleyman that they want to see more women in hijabs and are willing to take steps to ensure that it happens. IS even takes it a step further, issuing a warning to Iraqi women that they are “to wear full-face veils or risk severe punishment” like in Saudi Arabia or Afghanistan.

Suleyman sent out a picture of her new more European hijab look which includes exposing her hairline:

It’s Allah’s Kind of Town, Chicago

The video below is not new, but it’s a real eye-opener. It’s a ten-minute “Chicago Police Department Documentary about Islam and understanding Muslim beliefs and practices”. It provides a combination of da’wa and subtle intimidation of the infidel, courtesy of the Chicago city government.

Creeping Sharia, which posted the video today, had this to say about it:

Stumbled across this video posted in 2009 that should alarm Americans.

The Chicago police department is pimping for Islam in a documentary that shows an unindicted co-conspirator to the 1991 World Trade Center bombing and another Muslim who “officially resigned from the Obama campaign following inquiries from the Wall Street Journal about his ties to the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.”

It’s a full-fledged ad for Islam and seemingly seeks to force Chicago police officers to submit to Islamic customs sharia law when dealing with Muslim immigrants.

The Illinois State Police learned their lesson after hiring a Hamas-linked Imam to a Chaplain Post, but as recently as 2012 the Chicago Police Dept. Superintendent speaks at Hamas front CAIR-Chicago’s annual fundraiser.

My favorite line in this grotesque puff-piece: “Islam was basically the first women’s liberation movement.”

Rev. Dean, a chaplain for the Chicago Police Department, informs us that there are 400,000 Muslims in the Chicago area. The city of Chicago is home to 2.7 million people, but the Chicago metropolitan area has a population of about 9.7 million, which means that Muslims comprise just 4.1% of the population. If this is the kind of official publicity they can get now — funded by the taxpayer, I might add — what will the government-issued propaganda for Islam look like when they reach 15%? Or 30%?

I suppose we could look at London or Birmingham to get a rough idea.

Since the “documentary” was paid for by the government, don’t the producers have some sort of obligation to do due diligence? To research the background and history of Islam? To discover its violent ideology, as sanctioned by its scripture? To explain its traditional practices of conquest and destruction?

Apparently not.

Hat tip: Vlad Tepes.

The Jihad Boys Bring it All Back Home

Ann Corcoran does exemplary work.

Today we were sent a link to her latest post on Austria’s PC/MC dhimmified decision to accept Muslim asylum seekers. Actions have consequences: the dhimmis, having grasped this nettle, are now stamping their feet about the pain while Counterjihadists roll their eyes and reply, “Well, duh…what did you think those battles for Vienna were about, anyway?”

Below is today’s post from Refugee Resettlement Watch. Her links to her previous posts about this issue may be found at her URL.

Like Gates of Vienna, Ann keeps a subject archive; it’s linked on the post I’ve mirrored (though I have omitted her links in this mirroring, but you can find them there).

(Reuters) – Authorities suspect around 130 people resident in Austria – most of them foreign nationals – have allied themselves with Islamist militants fighting abroad, officials in Vienna said on Friday, raising their estimate by nearly a third.

Public safety director Konrad Kogler told a news conference the 130 figure included “people actively participating in combat as well as ones who have returned to Austria, because both groups of people are relevant for us”. He thought around two-thirds of them had come back to Austria and one-third were in battle or on the way there. Officials were tracking the target group’s foreign travel and monitoring their activities when they return given the security risk they might pose, he said.

He said 40 of the 130 were Austrian citizens. The others were primarily from Russia, the Balkans and Turkey.

[…]

Kogler did not confirm reports that the nine suspects – one aged just 17 – were Chechens, but said many were Russian citizens.

The suspects had mostly come to Austria as young people and got political asylum that could be revoked should they be convicted of joining a terrorist organization, officials said.

To which Ms. Corcoran adds this exasperated note:

“Big deal! I am sure those budding Jihadists are concerned about the revocation of their political refugee status!”

Islam Rising — In Poland?

The Islamization of Poland seems to be proceeding much faster than I ever expected — and probably to the surprise of most Poles.

Our Polish correspondent Green Infidel sends the following translated report on the latest official oppression of “Islamophobia” in Poland. He includes this introductory note:

It seems that in Poland, Western-style “hate-speech” laws are being rapidly enforced — perhaps helped by a Communist-style mentality still present in much of the police and prosecutors’ offices.

Here’s one victim — the owner of a Jihad Watch-style portal, reposting news articles about the “Islamisation of Europe”, mostly from Western media.

The police promptly took away his computer and laptop for examination, he was questioned about his “attitudes towards believers of Islam”, and even donors to his website received visits from the police!

One wonders whether the commenters, and over 150,000 Facebook users who “liked” his page will also receive visits?

The translated article:

On the 23rd of July [2014], the police carried out a search of my apartment and secured a PC, as well as my mobile phone with its SIM-card. However, this is not the first time when I’ve been the target of political correctness and pseudo-intellectual elites.

My legal problems commenced at the start of September 2013 — when I received a letter from the same prosecutors’ office, which is currently leading the investigation against me. At that time, I was accused of inciting hatred during 2012-2013, and insulting a group due to its faith. This is an charge from article 256§1 of the Polish penal code, and 257§ in relation to article 11§2 of the Polish legal code.

The prosecutors’ justification was as follows: “Damian Kowalski, inciting through the internet to hatred of the followers of Islam, requested donations to support his actions to the bank account number: …”. After a few days, I was forced to present myself at the prosecutors’ office and submit a statement in the presence of my lawyer, I was questioned about everything to do with the functioning of the website [www.ndie.pl].

ISIS: Guided by the Koran

Two weeks ago we posted about the march in Vienna in support of persecuted Christians in the Middle East. Below is a subtitled video of a speech given by Christian Zeitz on that occasion, concerning the Koranic basis for the actions of ISIS and the nature of Islamic law. In addition to his translation of the video, Rembrandt Clancy has provided us with an explanatory introduction.

Introduction
by Rembrandt Clancy

Below is a video of a demonstration against the “Islamic State” which took place in Vienna on 10 August 2014. The speaker is Christian Zeitz, Scientific Director of the Institute for Applied Political Economy in Austria. According to Internet portal unzensuriert.at, where he has published guest commentaries, Mr. Zeitz studies the theory of democracy, monetary theory, Islamology and the sociology of religion.

Mr. Zeitz raises two subjects in the video for which it is perhaps worthwhile to provide some background: the Ridda wars and the Austrian Islam Act of 1912.

The Ridda Wars

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the current IS leader and self-proclaimed Caliph, takes his name from Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, who according to tradition was an early friend of Mohammed’s. Upon the prophet’s death in 632, Abu Bakr became the prophet’s “rightly-guided” successor and the first Caliph. It was he who sponsored the Ridda or Apostasy Wars until his death in 634. The aim of the wars was to re-establish Muslim hegemony over Bedouin tribes on the Arabian Peninsula after they had fallen away from the faith. Raymond Ibrahim describes these first jihads this way:

Many Arab tribes were still willing to remain Muslim, but had second thoughts about paying zakat money to the first caliph, Abu Bakr. That was enough to declare jihad on them as apostates; tens of thousands of Arabs were burned, beheaded, dismembered, or crucified, according to Islamic history.

Indeed, Qaradawi himself, while discussing the importance of killing any Muslim who apostatizes from Islam on a live Al Jazeera program, correctly declared that “If the penalty for apostasy was ignored, there would not be an Islam today; Islam would have ended on the death of the prophet.”

The Austrian Islam Act of 1912

Christian Zeitz also refers briefly to the Islam Act (Islamgesetz) of 1912 (English, French and German versions), which the Emperor Franz Joseph (1830-1916) promulgated for the purpose of integrating Bosnia-Herzegovina into the Habsburg Monarchy. In a recent article for Gates of Vienna Mr. Zeitz details the background to the Act and outlines what is at stake:

Austria will soon have to decide whether it wants to establish in orderly fashion the primacy of the secular state versus the aspirations for an Islamic divine state, or intends to allow a further embedding of radical variants of Islam.

The Gatestone Institute has an article “Austria: Muslim Brotherhood’s New European Headquarters” (4 June 2014) which analyses why Austria’s Islam Act of 1912 provides attractive, external legal conditions for the Muslim Brotherhood that do not exist in any other European country.

Video Transcript

Speech by Christian Zeitz:

… devote a significant part of their free time in the service of this solidarity.

An outward gesture is very important for Austrians and the people of this city.

But it is also very important to speak truthfully about what is behind these massacres occurring right now in Iraq and in Syria and in the entire Near East.

Dear friends, we know that not only Christians, but also Yazidi, Shiites, and Alevi are affected by it; but that does not change the fact that it is inaccurate to label, as so-called “Islamic terrorists”, those who are acting here with tremendous violence, with bloody violence. They are nothing less and nothing more than people very concretely guided by central passages in the Koran. And we should not forget that ladies and gentlemen.
