Our Duty is to Preserve Sweden

Sverigedemokraterna (the Sweden Democrats) is a political party that is Islam-critical and opposes mass immigration into Sweden. As a result, it is demonized by the establishment and the mainstream media. Its members are sometimes fired from their jobs and denied access to certain state services. Sometimes they are even violently attacked by “anti-fascist” thugs.

Getting out the Muslim Vote in Tennessee

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

Newsletter #136 — Allah Says You Cannot Break Ranks With Other Muslims (part 2 of 2)

“Asalaam Alaykum, it’s your Muslim boy scout calling.”

Will Mwafaq Aljabbary’s fellow Kurd and mosque board member, Fadi Ezzeir help to get him votes for the Tennessee State Senate District 21 Republican seat?

As late as 2009, Ezzeir served as the President of the Nashville chapter of the Muslim American Society (MAS). In 2004 the Secretary-General of the MAS acknowledged that it had been founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Ezzeir is listed as the Executive Director of the Scouting Department of the Muslim American Society (MAS). In 2002, he organized the first Islamic boy scout troop in Nashville. In 2006 Ezzeir used the Muslim boy scout troop to make voter calls to other Muslims using a MAS script.

Did the script have the boy scouts tell their co-religionists that Allah says they can only vote for another Muslim?

The kids know what’s in their Islamic school textbook “What Islam Is All About”:

Two Minutes Hate Against Bild

Yesterday afternoon we published a translation of an opinion piece by Nicolaus Fest from the German newspaper Bild. Mr. Fest put into writing his doubleplus ungood thoughts about Islam, and now he’s in big trouble: his own editor has repudiated him, and politicians have called for the paper to apologize to German Muslims.

My goodness! Based on the aversive reaction, you’d think he was Diana West writing about Harry Hopkins and FDR!

Below are excerpts from a Breitbart article about the brouhaha:

Germany’s Biggest Paper under Fire for Attacking Islam

Germany’s biggest newspaper was forced into a climb down after it criticised Islam’s “criminality,” “murderous contempt” and “honour killings.”

“I don’t believe in God, but at the same time Christianity, Judaism or Buddhism don’t bother me. Only Islam bothers me more and more,” wrote Nicolaus Fest, vice editor-in-chief of the Bild am Sonntag newspaper in an opinion piece published on Sunday, according to The Local.

“I’m bothered by the considerably disproportionate criminality of youths from Muslim backgrounds. I’m bothered by Islam’s murderous contempt for women and homosexuals. I’m bothered by forced marriages, ‘justices of the peace,’ ‘honour killings,’” he wrote.

These cultural manifestations were making Islam “a barrier to integration.”

He also called for more deliberate policies when dealing with claims for asylum and visa applications to Germany. According to RT.com, Fest concluded by saying: “I don’t need any imported racism and I don’t need anything else Islam stands for.”

The opinion piece attracted thousands of angry online comments and criticism from German politicians who called the article “racist.” Politicians such as the Green party’s Volker Beck demanded an apology from the newspaper to German Muslims, who currently make up 4.3 million (over five per cent) of the country’s population.

An Atheist’s Antipathy Towards Islam

Many thanks to JLH for translating this brief piece from Bild:

Islam as a Hindrance to Integration

by Nicolaus Fest
July 27, 2014

I am an atheist who is sympathetic to religion. I do not believe in any god, but Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism do not disturb me.

Only Islam bothers me, more and more. I am disturbed by the highly disproportionate criminality of young people of Muslim heritage. I am bothered by the [literally and figuratively] killing contempt for women and homosexuals.

I am disturbed by forced marriages, “peace [sharia] judges,” and “honor killings.”

And I am disturbed more than even semi-civilized words can convey by anti-Semitic pogroms.

So I ask myself: Is religion a hindrance to integration? My impression — not always. But in the case of Islam, it probably is. We should take that into account, when considering asylum and immigration.

I can do without imported racism, and, as to what else Islam stands for, I can do without that too.

“Jews to the Gas!”

JLH has translated an opinion piece from the Austrian media about the pro-Palestinian anti-Semitic wave currently sweeping across Europe. The translator includes this note:

Die Presse always did have the class writers. But in this age of fawning on the authorities, it is bracing to encounter a journalist of the old school who does not hesitate to tell it like it is.

I suspect Christian Ortner believed in the principles of the EU as they were originally presented and resents the distortions they have undergone. As they say, a cynic is an idealist who has been mugged by reality. His irony is vicious, and well-deserved. Vienna continues its tradition of brilliant, against-the-grain writers.

The translated op-ed from Die Presse:

That Could Have Almost Become a “European Kristallnacht”

Anti-Semitic mobs are venting their rage in Europe’s big cities, and that is less of a concern for so-called Peace Project Europe than the light bulb question.

by Christian Ortner

The few, old denture-clacking Nazis still alive must have experienced a kind of spiritual revival of the Nuremberg Rallies* in recent days, when they rolled up to the TV in their wheelchairs to watch the news. Because there, in the great cities of Europe — Berlin, Paris and London — anti-Semitic mobs were moving through the streets as if it were 1938, attacking local Jews and Israeli tourists, trying to destroy synagogues and going after Jewish businesses. “Jew, Jew, cowardly swine/Come on out fight alone!” the thugs chanted, under the eyes of German police who not only made no move against them. but even loaned the rioters a megaphone, and immediately an Islamic Berlin hate preacher segued into calling for Jews to be killed: “Jews to the gas!” In Salzburg’s Bischofshofen, anti-Semitic hooligans actually attacked Israeli soccer players. The fact that in recent months 700 French Jews have emigrated to the rocket-plagued south of Israel testifies just how protected Jews feel in Europe in the early 21st century. It is highly probable that, without massive police presence, there would have been burning synagogues, smashed windows in Jewish businesses and a few lynched Jews in the EU last week. That week, Europe was not very far from an EU-wide Nazi pogrom night 2.0 — a kind of domestic market for anti-Semitism, so to speak.

One or the other of the surviving NS veterans, in a transport of joy, must have thought: “Oh, that I have been privileged to see this!”

The reactions of full-time wreath-layers and other tourists at the Wailing Wall to the activities of this mob in European cities were instructive. The proponents of the “European Peace Project” in Brussels — ordinarily concerned about every light bulb on the territory of the EU — witnessed the milieu-appropriate expressions of displeasure by the anti-Semitic rabble without turning a hair. This is surprising, on the one hand, because setting fire to a synagogue creates even more climate-damaging carbon dioxide than a forbidden light bulb. On the other hand, it is understandable, since Professional Europeans are presently fully and competitively occupied in insinuating themselves into the highly remunerated top jobs in Brussels, so they won’t just be hanging around the Côte on vacation (as they presently are), where a person — even a Jew — is safe, at least if you can afford a room in the Eden Roc in Antibes. And because “Peace Project Europe” is a recent recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, the thus honored EU grandees need not worry too much about the Jews of Europe being left in peace. You can’t worry about everything. Worrying about the EU as a reformatory for its inmates is enough.

Peace Comes to Ottawa

A group of culturally-enriched “Canadians” and their Progressive allies gathered in downtown Ottawa today to promote peace in Gaza and cast opprobrium on Israel. Some of the signage on display was a bit ironic, given that by that time Hamas had refused Israel’s offer of an extension on the temporary truce and started launching rockets from Gaza again. Meanwhile Israel extended the ceasefire unilaterally for another 24 hours.

Bad timing, Ottawa!

What is Racism?
by Fjordman

We hear a great deal about the evils of “racism” in the mass media. But what exactly is “racism,” anyway?

If the word means “to harbor prejudice against people with a different skin color and ethnic background”, then it is documented that Europeans, especially those from northwestern Europe, are among the least racist peoples on the surface of this planet. People coming from other parts of the world, for instance from Asia or Africa, tend on average to be more prejudiced against individuals from a different ethnic background. This further implies that mass immigration from Asia or Africa to the Western world increases the amount of racism in our societies, since Europeans are being displaced by more prejudiced newcomers.

If “racism” is used to indicate that you believe that some cultures are better than others, then this is simply common sense. A brutal, violent clan culture with endemic corruption generates a different society from a culture with high levels of trust and low levels of corruption, where citizens try to settle their differences in peaceful ways. Different cultures produce different societies, and some societies yield better results than others. This is an empirical fact that is easily documented.

If “racism” is intended to mean a belief there could be genetic differences between different human beings which affect not just how they look, but also how they think and behave, then things become more sensitive.

However, the progress in our understanding of human genetics is now very rapid. Evidence is accumulating indicating that human evolution has continued until the present day. According to some studies, it has even accelerated into historical times. Evidence further indicates that genetics influences how people behave. For instance, studies of identical twins indicate that they often hold similar political views. The implications of these studies is that people who are genetically similar also tend to think and act in similar ways.

If we expand this same principle from individuals to ethnic groups, we might theoretically face the possibility that a group of somewhat genetically related people displays related world views and behaviors, partly for biological reasons. Another way of saying the same thing is that perhaps culture has a genetic component. Please note that I say a component, not that everything in a culture is 100% genetic. Ideas clearly matter. This is, for instance, why some white converts to Islam seem to develop a sudden urge to blow things up shortly after converting.

CAIR, Islam, and Tennessee Politics

The following report from the Tennessee Council for Political Justice combines newsletters #134 and #135.

Newsletter #134 — A Leopard Doesn’t Change Its Spots

Predictably, CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) is standing in defense of Hamas using civilians as human shields as Israel….

Predictably, the Executive Director of the pro-Palestinian D.C. think tank, the Jerusalem Fund/Palestine Center, when asked directly, will not answer the simple yes/no question:

“Is Hamas a terrorist organization?”

CAIR was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Association for Palestine, which was created to promote and raise money for Hamas in the U.S. Federal prosecutors have established ample evidence tying CAIR to Hamas. In 1994 CAIR Director Nihad Awad publicly declared his support for Hamas.

The Jerusalem Fund and Palestine Center was founded by Hisham Sharabi who described Hamas as “the true fida’i (self-sacrifice) resistance in Palestine since the outbreak of the Palestinian intifada.” In 2003 he said:

“In the face of relentless Israeli force, the only weapon the helpless and desperate have is to fling their bodies against the beast. Suicide bombings are no longer the lone act of desperate fanatics, but have become a conscious weapon of resistance and war. The culture of death and self-sacrifice is spreading in many Arab and Muslim countries.”

Jerusalem Fund Chairman is Subhi Ali from Waverly, Tennessee. He joined the Jerusalem Fund in 2000, became Vice-President in 2004 serving alongside Sharabi and then became President of the Board in 2005, a position he still retains. The Jerusalem Fund campaigns for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel. This is a campaign, the intent of which is widely recognized, to try and destroy the state of Israel.

Subhi Ali is the father of former Haslam appointee, sharia finance specialist, Samar Ali.

“Anchor Babies”, German-Style

We’re used to the phenomenon of “anchor babies” here in the USA, where any expectant mother who can get into the country in time to give birth will have an American citizen for a son or daughter.

But a similar problem now exists in Germany and Austria. If unaccompanied minors get into the country, they can stay, and later bring in their parents for “family reunification”. Those kids tug at the heartstrings — they can’t be thrown out, now, can they?

Och, the puir wee bairns!

How do you say that in German?

Many thanks to JLH for this translation from Zuerst:

“Anchor” Children Become a Problem

Flood of Underage Foreigners Increases

July 19, 2014

BERLIN: A problem is making the rounds: “anchor children” — that is, unaccompanied, underage refugees brought in by people smugglers. After receiving their residence permits, they send for their parents, siblings and other relatives. Their number in Germany is on the rise.

This phenomenon is not confined to Europe, but also exists in the USA. Bypassing Congress in 2012, President Barack Obama defanged the immigration law. From that time on, young immigrants in the USA would not be sent back. Obama mandated that immigrants arriving as children or youths may no longer be deported. Furthermore, they have the right to apply for a job.

The fact cannot be argued away that Obama’s and his administration’s controversial immigration policy has been bearing fruit for a long time, in the form of increasing numbers of illegal border crossings by South- and Central Americans. Last year, new negative records were reached in connection with the problem of the “anchor children.” According to Homeland Security, over 52,000 underage immigrants without parents had been picked up along the Mexican border since October. The children and young people come mostly from Central American and are fleeing poverty or violence.

Homeland Security, which is responsible for protecting the border, has no estimate of unreported cases, and it could be in the tens of thousands, not counting the number of dead and kidnapped.

The “anchor children” who have come to Germany have no settled residence status. They are hoping for a residence permission which will allow their parents, siblings and other relatives to come to Germany without problems. Only a few of these anchor children apply for asylum. There were 2,096 unaccompanied refugee minors in 2012 — three times as many as in 2008. There are no nationwide figures for how many unaccompanied refugee minors are living in Germany now.

Since 2005, youth offices have been obligated to take children and young people into care, if they are in Germany unaccompanied. Most of the support is supplied by branches of Child and Youth Welfare.

In 2012 in Austria, a total of 1,631 unaccompanied children were apprehended by the Ministry of the Interior.

Burka Don’t You Come Around Here Anymore

A couple of years ago a group of doughty Australians (who have more, ahem, manly generative equipment — the women included — than most other Westerners) donned burkas and did a walkabout on the streets of Sydney to make a point.

As you can see from the videos below, these ladies and gents faced “discrimination” whilst in their culturally enriched garb. But it wasn’t the standard kind of WAYCISM that the mainstream media would have you expect — it was the anger of “Australian” youths that these pale-skinned interlopers should be wearing garments reserved for their own chattel womenfolk.

Sydney banks made amends for such maltreatment by allowing the Burka Boys unfettered entry to their premises — which they most assuredly would not have allowed to anyone wearing a ski mask or a visored motorcycle helmet:

These Australian videos came to mind a couple of days ago when a freelance British journalist and producer emailed me about a documentary she intends to produce for the BBC in which young men put on burkas to test the reaction of passersby when they go out on the street.

As it turns out, Vlad Tepes also received a copy of the same email. Now, I hadn’t expected that BBC documentary would have the same “Islamophobic” intentions as those bag-headed Australians. However, I hadn’t thought out the full ramifications of the Beeb’s scam like Vlad has. Below is a cross-post of what he had to say.

The BBC plans to run another burka scam.
By Eeyore for Vlad

To be perfectly fair it is quite possible that Kate Mead, the freelance journalist who is doing this piece for the BBC, may well be sincere and may well not understand this the same way. Its also possible that she is not setting up her social experiment the way I suspect she is. But as pretty much all the other similar articles I have read are designed to deliver the same results I figure it is probably safe to at least speculate that this BBC repetition of it will likely be set up the same, will yield the same results and for the same reasons.

Below, the contents of an email forwarded to me by someone who received it directly from Ms. Mead.

Subject: Documentary

Dear Sir or Madam

I came across your blog while researching for information about a documentary I am developing for BBC Three and I wonder whether you can help. We are in the second stage of our development for this one-off programme which will look at the Burka and whether it should be banned in the UK.

We are currently looking for young men (18-35) to take part in this project who have strong views either in favour of a ban or opposing it. The idea is that they will journey around the country speaking to various women about their experiences – positive and negative – and work with a Muslim social worker who encourages men to experiment with the experience by wearing a Burka themselves for a few days. It is meant to be an accessible look at the issue of Burkas in the UK for a young audience and we hope that our contributors will go on a journey of discovery that might change or intensify their feelings.

As we are looking for potential contributors throughout the UK, we would be really keen to hear from anyone articulate, passionate about the subject and willing to explore the issue directly. I thought that one or several of your writers might be interested in this and would welcome hearing from them. Please do forward my details and invite them to get in touch. I would be most grateful for any help you can give.

We are currently doing screen tests to take back to the channel ahead of commission. This would take about half an hour and we can travel to where they live or pay expenses.

I hope to hear from you soon and thanks in advance.

Kind regards

The first problem of course is that it is a setup for tyranny either way. The question is not whether or not to ban a style of clothing. One does not guarantee personal freedom by draconian laws on women’s fashion, even if this is more than just matter of women’s fashion. The solution to the burka problem is giving back people the freedom to discriminate for their own interests and for society to discriminate based on what is in the public interest.

This translates to private store owners having the right to refuse admission to people who are wearing a disguise whether that disguise is a Nixon mask, a pig’s head or a burka and in the public sector, to refuse admittance to people wearing a disguise in public transport, in public buildings and so on. This is more than reasonable, it is actually necessary. While this looks like a nudge nudge style banning of the burka it is not. If women want to wear fundamentalist islamic garb good. Then let them. That way we can know who they are, as the degree of threat they represent to liberal democracy is directly proportional to the degree of religiosity they display. But wearing a disguise in public should be illegal and in many cases already is, and exceptions are made for muslims. So once again, the real solution is not a new law, but to stop making exceptions for the existing ones. Just try and walk into a bank with a motorcycle helmet and a tinted visor and see how long you stay in line.

Now on to what I suspect is a public sympathy scam for the BBC:

“It’s More Than Worry: It’s Fear”

Sarcelles is a culturally enriched suburb north of Paris. Last weekend, especially on Sunday, Sarcelles was catapulted into the headlines by pro-Palestinian demonstrations that metamorphosed into anti-Jewish riots targeting a synagogue and Jewish businesses. The smoldering shop fronts and smashed display windows were reminiscent of Kristallnacht in 1938, only this time the perpetrators were not blond blue-eyed Europeans wearing uniforms, but culture-enrichers wearing sweatshirts, sneakers, and baseball caps — “youths” exemplifying France’s rich rainbow tapestry of vibrant diversity.

Many thanks to Oz-Rita for translating this French news report, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling. Translator’s note: “Be aware that Chanel 2 — French State TV, probably the French equivalent of the BBC — are dhimmi and Islamophile, so it must be really getting bad over there if even they come out on the side of the Jews.”

Below are excerpts from several news articles about last weekend’s violence in Sarcelles. First, from The Local (hat tip Fjordman):

Pro-Palestinian rally near Paris ends in violence

A Pro-Palestinian demo ended in violence in a Paris suburb on Sunday, just a day after a similar rally to denounce Israel’s attack on Gaza in the centre of the French capital, also descended into a riot as protesters clash with police.

A rally in the Paris suburb town of Sarcelles that had also initially been banned ended in chaos as several cars were burnt or vandalised, shops were looted and young protesters lit firecrackers and smoke bombs.

Early Sunday evening, tensions were still high in the town, with riot police blocking access to the local synagogue, where a group of young vigilantes stood armed with clubs and iron bars — one of them flying an Israeli flag.

The violence echoed similar scenes at a banned pro-Palestinian rally in the cente of Paris on Saturday afternoon.

As the evening wore on in Sarcelles, looters then began raiding shops, wrecking a funeral home and destroying its front window as several protesters shouted: “F*** Israel!”.

Others raided a drugstore which caught fire. Young girls grabbed baby milk inside.

“We’re going to get the cash register,” one person shouted, his voice drowned by the noise of a police helicopter overhead and the alarm of a nearby pizzeria.

Security forces then fired rubber bullets in the direction of the looters as police helicopters buzzed overhead.

At least 13 rioters had been arrested by the early evening, and four policemen had been hospitalised with several others injured. There were also reports of journalists being attacked by the rioters.

Le Figaro newspaper also reported that a molotov cocktail had been thrown at a synagogue in the area, which was being garded by police. The makeshift incendiary device exploded next to the building but did not set it alight, the newspaper reported.

“The atmosphere is very tense, we are waiting for reinforcements from the gendarmes,” one police officer told Le Figaro.

[…]

Organisers have defiantly called for another rally in the French capital on Saturday, starting at 1300 GMT in the central Republic Square.

The Israeli offensive has stoked passions in France, which has the largest Muslim population in western Europe as well as a 500,000-strong Jewish community.

Two Norwegian Terrorists Named Anders

If you appreciate this essay by Fjordman, please consider making a donation to him, using the button at the bottom of this post.

It has been three years since Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 people with his July 22 2011 terror attacks in Norway. There have been several articles and stories mentioning me in the Norwegian media the last couple of weeks. This may well happen every July for years to come, with predictable regularity. It’s a bit like strawberry season.

In an essay published at the website of the state broadcaster NRK, three professional “anti-racists” asked for more money from the government to combat Islamophobia and other alleged right-wing extremism that can fuel terrorism.

If you read their essay closely, it names one, and only one, person as representing these supposedly evil forces: myself. So what they are really arguing is that more than three years after Breivik’s attacks, Norway must spend more tax money on combating me, personally. Apparently the public funding that many professional activists have today is inadequate for that purpose. They must regard me as some kind of Godzilla — or Fjordzilla.

The three individuals who authored this essay — Rune Berglund Steen, Shoaib Sultan and Ervin Kohn — were all associated with the state-sponsored Norwegian Centre against Racism. Its leader Berglund Steen has previously suggested that I want to more or less single-handedly start a world war. He didn’t specify exactly how I would be in a position to do so, even if I wanted to.

Shoaib Sultan, a Muslim activist of Pakistani origins, works for the Centre as an advisor on so-called Islamophobia and right-wing extremism. The labor unions (LO), which have intimate ties to the Labour Party, from 2012 onward sponsored this work against Islamophobia with hundreds of thousands of kroner every year.

Sultan is a previous leader of the Islamic Council of Norway. In 2006, during the height of the international Mohammed Cartoons crisis, he published a newspaper essay in Aftenposten claiming that the cartoons had “hurt” him and other Muslims, and that freedom of speech should not be absolute. Shoaib Sultan suggested that Norway should study suggestions made by Abid Q. Raja, a lawyer and politician of Pakistani Muslim background, to strengthen laws against blasphemy so that Muslims would not have their feelings hurt again.

Good Riddance!

Geert Wilders and other Dutch politicians are opposed to any efforts to keep “Dutch” mujahideen from traveling to Syria and Iraq to wage jihad. They’d be glad to see them go — provided that the Dutch government never, ever permits them to return to the Netherlands.

Many thanks to JLH for translating this piece from Politically Incorrect:

Geert Wilders: How We Can Help Our “Migrant Holy Warriors” and Ourselves as Well

Whether they are Hamas, Fatah, Al Qaida, Boko Haram. ISIS, Hizb ut-Tahir, Salafists or other, they are all part of the Islamic ummah, just as the Islamic organizations in Europe belong to the ummah. With every terror attack and death, the jihad activists confirm what they told us in the devastating attacks in Madrid in 2004: “You love life; we love death.” And the local representatives of Islam, in their mosques sponsored and ratified by dhimmi politicians, clergy and media, have not denied that, and they do not demonstrate against Islamic terror. They can’t — it is in accordance with the Koran. So how would it be possible to find agreement with these “wandering holy warriors,” or even find some way of mutually helping each other?

(by Alster)

Almost all the countries or Europe are discussing how to deal with the danger from radicalized Muslims returning from Syria and Iraq. At the same time, according to the chief of state security with the Braunschweig criminal police, Klaus Buhlmann, thirty persons from the region of Braunschweig/Wolfsburg alone are sitting, waiting on packed luggage.

How many are there altogether in Europe? 400 to 500 fighters from Great Britain alone have been taken on by ISIS. Germany shares the problem with other European countries such as Denmark, Sweden, Great Britain and Ireland, Belgium, France, Spain and the Netherlands.

Now, a video from Aleppo, Syria has turned up in Holland, in which a couple of jihadists from the Netherlands offer a solution. They say it would be better to make it possible for those eager for war to go to jihad. Take their passports from them, as they themselves wish it: “Oh Aqsa, we are on our way! The monotheistic revolution has begun!”
