Gates of Vienna News Feed 9/30/2011

Gates of Vienna News Feed 9/30/2011According to the latest news reports, Chinese banks are on the verge of collapse. Although the banking system in China has substantial earnings, it holds so much bad debt that it puts the entire system at risk. Analysts fear that the situation in the banking sector may drag China’s growth rate down to zero.

In other news, the European Union is considering dropping the requirement that Turkish citizens obtain visas before entering its member states’ territories.

Meanwhile, actor Sean Penn joined the demonstrators in Tahrir Square in Cairo to protest the actions of Egypt’s military government.

Rebirth and Resistance

The 910 Group (large)

Remember the 910 Group?

This past Monday, September 26, was the fifth anniversary of the founding of the 910 Group. I was still in London that day, so I couldn’t give the occasion its proper recognition until now.

The 910 Group was formed in the comments section on a Gates of Vienna post entitled “The Emperor is Naked”. People were motivated by the discussion there to found a Counterjihad action group. Several of them took the initiative and formed an online discussion group to recruit volunteers and discuss what could be done.

A few days later the name “910 Group” was adopted, and the above image became the logo for the organization. If you read through the comments on that first post and the ones that appeared during the weeks following, you’ll see a lot of names you recognize. Some of them are still active in the movement, and have become part of the “network of networks” that has emerged over the past five years.

ICLA (CVF) ShieldIn 2007 the group changed its name to the Center for Vigilant Freedom, and took on the CVF shield as its new logo. The phoenix at the center of the shield is the same as the one in the 910 Group logo emerging from the ashes of the World Trade Center. It ties the two organizations together in their common purpose.

The golden nodes with their interlocked connections on the periphery of the shield represent all the different groups that are linked with each other in the struggle against Islamization and sharia. Notice that there is no central node: this is a distributed network. It has no command structure, no hierarchy, and no central authority.

A year or so later CVF was folded into the International Civil Liberties Alliance, which retained the shield as its logo. The ICLA site reflects our extended network of associated groups. In addition to English, it publishes material in Spanish, Dutch, Italian, and German.

People who are ambitious — who want to become powerful leaders and boss everyone else around — quickly lose interest in ICLA, because that is not our modus operandi. We are forced to operate under conditions of official harassment and repression, meaning that a hierarchical structure would be vulnerable to “beheading”.

In contrast, a loose horizontally-organized structure is more flexible and resilient, and is better able to withstand attempts to dismantle it. There are so many nodes and so many interconnections that the network cannot easily be destroyed. If you remove any individual node, the effect is the same as taking down a server in a large computer network: the remaining servers route around it.

Six months after our founding we held our first Counterjihad conference in Copenhagen, and we have held at least one every year ever since. We work with a variety of groups, including political parties as well as all kinds of activist organizations. We are willing to talk to any group that shares our goals of resisting sharia and stopping the Islamization of the West, without any politically correct shibboleths to inhibit the discussion.

Happy birthday, 910 Group!

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

The two keywords in the 910 Group’s mission are Rebirth and Resistance.

Rebirth describes the process we all went through as we recovered from the trauma of 9-11. It signals the resolve to move from the grieving process — a passive position — to one of resolute action, which brings us to

Resistance. It’s not enough to say “never again”. We are faced with massive Islamic infiltration and intimidation, a campaign of disinformation and subterfuge masterminded by the Muslim Brotherhood, and the determination of our governments, our media, and our educational institutions to stop us from doing what we do. A process of conscious, continuous, active resistance is required if we are to overcome the pressure from institutions demanding that we submit to Islamization.

Strangely enough, after five years of this endeavor, resistance is more necessary than ever. Almost all the political arrests and prosecutions of Counterjihad activists have taken place since the beginning of 2007. As the resistance intensifies, so does the repression.

Our political leaders are currently in the midst of the worst financial crisis in a century, and a failure to contain it may end their careers. Making Muslims happy is considered an absolute necessity, not just to keep the price of oil down, but to guarantee the quiescence of all those Muslim ghettos in the banlieues and inner cities across Europe, Canada, and Australia.

To maintain the stability of the system, dissenters must be silenced. The more instability, the greater the pressure on dissidents. The current level of repression is a sign that the system is in danger, and is desperately cracking down on those who question its legitimacy.

The totalitarian methods described here have been employed against Counterjihad activists by ostensibly democratic governments in Western nations, not by Third World dictatorships. These fascist tactics were deemed necessary to fight “racism” and “xenophobia”. The “crimes” committed have been variously described as “incitement of racial or religious hatred”, “incitement against an ethnic group”, and “denigration of a religion”. Rationales for the suppression of free speech include the necessity for “community cohesion” and the maintenance of “inter-group harmony”.

Below is a very partial list of dissidents who have lost their jobs, or have been harassed, intimidated, arrested, prosecuted, fined, and/or imprisoned by their governments since the 910 Group was founded five years ago:

Australia:   Andrew Bolt, Martin Brennan
Austria:   Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff
Belgium:   Bart Debie
Canada:   Ezra Levant, Mark Steyn
Denmark:   Lars Hedegaard
Finland:   Jussi Halla-aho, Tomashot
France:   Philippe Val
The Netherlands:   Gregorius Nekschot, Geert Wilders
Norway:   Fjordman
Sweden:   Dahn Pettersson
UK:   Tommy Robinson, Kevin Carroll, and many, many rank-and-file members of the English Defence League
USA:   Derek Fenton

Mind you, these were just the names I could remember off the top of my head. A complete list would be much longer, and would probably include hundreds of individuals by now.

The acceleration in arrests of political dissidents in Britain is so great that it is all but impossible to track what is happening there. The recent actions against the EDL are just the latest in a long series of politically-motivated arrests, detentions, and prosecutions.

This week’s conviction of Australian journalist Andrew Bolt is particularly ominous. It has surely sent a shudder through the community of opinion writers across Australia and beyond, sending them the clear signal that any disagreement with Multicultural orthodoxy could result in severe legal consequences for them.

Resistance is needed today more than ever. At the rate repression is increasing, if we don’t engage in massive resistance now, any resistance at all may soon become impossible.

The long-expected crackdown is at hand.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

In “The Emperor is Naked” I said this:

Gates of Vienna’s mission statement requires it to do battle with the Great Islamic Jihad in the realm of ideas.

We agree with Fjordman and many others that the Jihad is just a symptom, and that the enemy lies within. This war is a civil war within the West, between traditional Western culture and the forces of politically correct multicultural Marxism that have bedeviled it for the last hundred years. It is being fought in the back halls and cloisters of the culture, with untenured nobodies like me wielding a salad fork against the broadswords and maces of the fully-armored knights of the media and the academy.

Even so, there’s no doubt that the Emperor has no clothes. He struts up and down the esplanades of the culture with his full entourage, confident of his own splendor, but wearing his birthday suit.

Ours is the collective voice of the little boy in the crowd who dares to say, “The Emperor is naked.” It’s just not loud enough to be heard.

Five years on, the enemy still lies within, and the Emperor is still naked. But today the hand of the state is poised, ready to strike down the little boy who does no more than tell the simple truth.

Numerous people were already being silenced before July 22, but in the backlash after the Oslo atrocities many more decided to pull down their shutters and close their businesses.

For those of us who remain, it’s more imperative than ever to speak out, to tell the truth stridently, passionately, emphatically, and frequently.

We need to remind our fellow countrymen who they are and where they come from.

We need to celebrate what is good and fine and great and true about Western Civilization.

We need to oppose those who would deny, deride, deprecate, denigrate, and destroy our heritage.

We’ve had our Rebirth. Now it’s time for Resistance.

Matthew’s Story: A War With Many Fronts

Last week Dymphna wrote about EDL sympathizer Matthew Stiddard’s encounter with the police . The former Australian Defence League leader Martin Brennan — who is native English, and was deported from Oz recently for failing to file proper immigration paperwork — has been staying with Mr. Stiddard since his arrival in England. Tundra Tabloids also recently posted an article about Martin Brennan, which described the attempt by the police to “turn” Mr. Stiddard.

Now Matthew Stiddard has written his own statement about the whole affair, and Nilk has posted it at Vlad Tepes. She says:

My mate Martin Brennan has been staying with a fellow called Matthew Stiddard. Martin was deported from Australia officially due to a breach of visa, but seeing as Martin had never been in trouble with the police nor had any notification from DIAC about any visa irregularities, I wonder if that was really it.

That’s for another day, so we’ll leave that for now.

Matthew was interviewed by VladTepes, and I’ve also gotten to know him. He’s starting to get a bit of a profile now, and he’s concerned that there might be some misconceptions floating around with respect to his current police…. challenges … and what’s happening with the leadership of the EDL.

For the record, Matthew has never made any comment about why the police would be interested in Martin. In conversation he has made it quite clear that it’s not a path he would like to travel down.

Here’s Matthew Stiddard’s account, as posted at Vlad:

My Story

On the 9th of April 2011 I made a video called Intifada on the request of the then leader of the Jewish Defence League and it went live on the WWW, shortly after this I started receiving threats of violence through my letterbox to the sound of nazi scum, fascist and many unpleasant four letter words, I took no notice of this and threw the letters in the bin, thinking that they were just words to scare me off. Then at the beginning of May that year I received a letter saying ‘fascist c**t, you are next’ doing what I always did throwing it in the bin only to be awoken two days later at around 1.30am to the sound of my windows being banged and being told that my Landrover Discovery was on fire and that the flames were lapping over my bungalow.

I hear you asking how did they find out it was my video, someone put their name to my video claiming that they did it, in a group on Facebook which at the time was filled with trolls (left wing nut jobs), what this person didn’t realize was that I always show my new video’s to a couple of people just before they go live, a sort of pre-screening well these people jumped to my defence and said it was not his claim but mine and gave my full name. My profile picture on Facebook is of my two dogs and at the time I had the name of the village were I lived, being of only 200 homes it wasn’t hard to find me especially when you have a large number of Unite Against Fascism (UAF) 10 miles up the road in Exeter. Stupid I know… since then I have had to be aware of what is around me and I have had to keep changing my routine when it comes to walking my dogs.

I have made 15 video’s all together 2 for different divisions of the English Defence League (EDL) and 2 for my fellow Australians, the rest was for myself highlighting different aspects of islam.

22nd of September 2011

On this morning at 8am BST police officers entered my home and immediately seizing my laptop and a number of mobile phones belonging to myself and Martin (who is currently staying with me while he sorts himself out) and was visiting his friends near London at the time. They even tried taking two musical CD’s by a band called Anglo Saxon thinking it was something to do with right-wing extremist propaganda. The police went into my bedroom and headed straight for Martin’s bag where he has clothing and his passport and documents of who he is and his deportation information. Two police officers spent between 40 and 60 minutes looking at these documents taking information from the documents and on two occasions taking his passport and other documents outside to make phone calls, only one can guess why they did this. They searched every corner of my home including the garden and the allotment up the road. I was then arrested due to medical grounds which have nothing to do with my chosen path in standing against the worldwide jihad movement. I was then taken to the police station to be formally charged.

On arrival I had to be signed in and give over my details, I was asked if I had any religious beliefs or special food requirements, my reply was…

‘I do not eat any halal food or any halal certified foods’ in return the police officer sad ‘I am being serious’ in which I replied ‘does it look like I am f****** joking….No halal’ was I rude, arrogant or stupid in saying this or was I, a man for standing by my principles.

The police then had 6 hours to go through my laptop gaining access to my video’s, articles, resources and the many anti-jihad blogs and websites that I have stored on my laptop. I was then interviewed at 6pm BST firstly about my arrest connected to my medical condition which I believe was a poor excuse to enter my home. They then turned to other matters concerning my involvement in the counter jihad, they seem to know all about my video’s, my youtube channel, the demonstrations I attend around the country, my web activities and the fact that I look through council planning applications for mosques and islamic community centres so I can then pass them on to a lawyer, so he can fight to stop them being built. I replied that I had not been arrested for this so I do not have to answer your questions the whole interview lasted around 9 minutes.

This investigation is still on going, in other words they have nothing on me and want to try and find something. I was released at 9pm to answer bail on the 7th of November were I will find out if I am going to be charged with racial and religious assault and/or exciting racial hatred.

Wednesday the 28th September 2011

At around 10am on this morning I had a visit yet again to my home but this time by the Police Intelligence Unit (PIU) wanting to ask me some questions. On entering my home they asked if Martin was here on replying no he is visiting friends they (PIU) made contact with another officer on his phone saying ‘it is okay’ a few phone calls were received to make sure they were safe I mean what can I do with the ill health I have towards officers of the British police force.

They seem to have a lot of intelligence not just on myself and Martin but the whole off the EDL within the South West of England, but, it also seems that the intelligence they have is all jumbled up and they are trying to cross the T’s and dot the I’s like having a 5,000 piece jigsaw puzzle of bake beans without having the picture.

They were asking me what positions people held, how the divisions were set up, they asked what my links were to other groups, did I know this person or that person and as with every question came the same answer I don’t now anything or anyone. They asked what my links were to the EDL and I said that I have no links to the EDL I work for myself in exposing the true nature of Islam. They asked what involvement Martin had I replied ‘that he has had no involvement since being in the U.K apart from going to a couple of demonstrations’ one being the counter demonstration on 9/11 against Muslims Against Crusades (MAC) one can only speculate why they asked this maybe they are interested in what is on his phone as this was the only phone that they have not had access to. I do believe that we will all find out what is on his phone over the next few days. If I did and I mean IF I did know anything then I would rather do 10 years in prison than help was my final reply to the above questions.

They even asked if I knew anyone within the groups of the UAF and MAC ‘they are the enemies why would I know any of them’ was my reply. The question was then put to me that if I knew of a terrorist attack on the U.K would I inform the police my reply ‘I do this to protect my country of course I would, you think that I would allow them to do this to my country’. This question seems a little bizarre as if I would just sit back and turn a blind eye to an on coming attack on my homeland.

After getting no where with the questions the real insult came, they offered to pay all my expenses to travel all around the U.K to demonstrations and in return to supply them with intelligence. As if I would turn on my brothers and sisters who are the only people brave enough to stand against the onslaught of radical Islam and the Islamists that are hell bent on destroying my beautiful country and all the hopes and freedoms that she gives. I did by the way refuse this offer

Like I said to the officer I do not pay any money for membership to the EDL, I am not a member of the EDL, I understand why they do what they do, I even have the same concerns as the EDL and have shown my support for them by turning up at a few of their demonstrations and I will always show support to the volunteers of the EDL but this does not mean that I am a member of the EDL. What I do I do for myself and to show people the truth with what is really going on.

I have had threats of violence, been followed and had my Landrover Discovery set on fire by the left-wing nut jobs that plague our country, the police even know the group responsible to a degree, yet no arrests or questioning to these people have been made to date and I am the one that finds myself in police cells while my laptop and phone has been seized and getting visits from police intelligence.

That is all I have to say and hope that there is enough information there for you also here is a link to my youtube channel. The video titled the false prophet is not mine I just uploaded it for a friend as youtube wouldn’t let him put it on his channel.

— Matthew

Nilk includes this afterword:

One thing to think about here is that while the EDL has many members, there are also many more who identify with it although they do not join. We have had the same experience here with what I call the ‘fledgling’ Australian Defence League.

I attended the recent BDS anti-Max Brenner (what’s racist about hot chocolate?) with some friends, and there were others there who likewise felt a need to witness the growing anti-semitism in our country. I was sent a link to a photo that claimed to be of 2 ADL members, and one other person of indeterminate origin.

I was the only person there who has ever identified as being with the ADL, and I wasn’t in the photo. The others are friends who happen to agree with me that fascism of any sort, whether doled out by socialists, ageing commies or those who are determined to push an islamist agenda, is not welcome.

My friends are like Matthew. They make their stands in their own ways, and not necessarily by waving a banner.

This is a war with many fronts, and Matthew knows it.

Anwar al-Awlaki Gets His 72 Raisins

According to breaking news reports, the American-born violent extremist Anwar al-Awlaki has been killed by a predator drone in Yemen. Mr. Awlaki (or “Aulaqi” — another Man of Many Spellings) was the leader of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. He has been cited as the inspiration for many of the recently captured mujahideen who were plotting terrorist attacks against the United States, Canada, and Europe.

This isn’t the first time that Mr. Awlaki has been reported whacked. So, even though the U.S. government has confirmed his demise, I’m going to reserve judgment for a few days to see if this story holds up.

According to The Washington Post:

Anwar Al-Aulaqi, U.S.-Born Cleric Linked to Al-Qaeda, Reported Killed in Yemen

SANAA, Yemen — Anwar al-Aulaqi, a radical U.S.-born Muslim cleric and one of the most influential al-Qaeda operatives wanted by the United States, was killed Friday in an airstrike in northern Yemen, authorities said, eliminating a prominent recruiter who inspired attacks on U.S. soil.

In Washington, a senior Obama administration official confirmed that Aulaqi is dead. Earlier, a senior counterterrorism official said U.S. intelligence indicates that the 40-year-old cleric, a dual national of the United States and Yemen, perished in the attack, the Associated Press reported.

The Yemeni Defense Ministry, in a text message sent to journalists, announced that “the terrorist Anwar al- Aulaqi has been killed along with some of his companions,” but did not provide further details. The report could not be independently verified; Aulaqi has been falsely reported killed before.

In a separate e-mailed statement, the Yemeni government said Aulaqi was “targeted and killed” five miles from the town of Khashef in Yemen’s northern Jawf province, 87 miles east of the capital Sanaa. The attack, the statement said, was launched at 9:55 a.m. Friday local time.

While the Defense Ministry said Aulaqi was killed in Marib province, other government sources said he was killed in neighboring Jawf province.

A Yemeni security source, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said Aulaqi was killed in an airstrike, possibly by an unmanned American drone. The Obama administration in recent months has escalated the use of drones to target al-Qaeda-linked militants in Yemen and Somalia.

If true, Aulaqi’s death would be considered a significant victory in the U.S. war against global terrorism. It comes less than five months after U.S. Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden, leader of the al-Qaeda network, in a raid on his hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Aulaqi, born in New Mexico to Yemeni parents, has been implicated in helping to motivate several attacks on U.S. soil. He is said to have inspired an Army officer who allegedly killed 13 people in a November 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Tex., as well as a Ni­ger­ian student who attempted to bomb a Detroit-bound airliner the following month and a Pakistani American man who tried to set off a car bomb in New York City in May 2010. Aulaqi has also been linked to an attempt in 2010 to send parcel bombs on cargo plans bound for the United States.

Gates of Vienna News Feed 9/29/2011

Gates of Vienna News Feed 9/29/2011English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson was convicted of assault today in Preston Magistrates’ Court. The charge stemmed from an incident at an EDL demo last April at which Mr. Robinson was said to have head-butted a disaffected EDL member. The defendant vigorously denied that he had assaulted anyone, and says that the charge was a political one designed to keep him out of active involvement with the EDL.

In other news, the latest reports say that former British Prime Minister Tony Blair had no fewer than six meetings with Libyan dictator Col. Muamar Kheddafi after Mr. Blair left office in 2007.

Policing While Muslim

The Association of Muslim Police poster below was on display in Trafalgar Square last Saturday during the Eid Festival. The original photo of it was taken by Henrik Ræder Clausen of Europe News. I’ve removed the foreshortening to make it easier to see:

Association of Muslim Police #1

A close-up of the text in the center panel:

Association of Muslim Police #2

Henrik had this to say about it:

For those not aware of the political nature of Islam, it might come across as just a cultural amusement to see Islam still deeper entrenched in the British police force. Other countries, like Denmark and France, insist that religion has no role to play in policing. Not so in Britain.

No indeed.

Imagine, if you will, a police recruiting poster that read “Christians making a difference to policing.”

No? Can’t quite picture it?

How about a vow to “assist Christians in the police service to observe their faith”? Or to “provide a forum for Christians in the police”?

Not only would the Metropolitan Police never print or distribute any such texts, they would arrest anyone who did and charge him with “inciting racial or religious hatred”.

Christianity is all but unmentionable in public in the United Kingdom.

As for “assisting in the recruitment and retention of Christian staff” — what a laugh! “Guaranteeing the persecution of Christian staff” would be more accurate.

And what would happen to any officer who openly declared himself to be a practicing Jew? Would he be assigned to a beat in Tower Hamlets, maybe?

Welcome to Modern Multicultural Britain.

Thanks to an observant reader for pointing out the typo in my adapted transcript, which I have fixed.

Punished for Supporting Israel

Alaa Alsaegh is an Iraqi Muslim living in the St. Louis area. Last month he wrote a poem in Arabic for a pro-Israel website, expressing his support for Israel.

His reward? Two strangers trapped him on a deserted street and carved a Star of David in his back with a knife.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this video:

Here’s the accompanying news story from KMOV TV:

St Louis man says he’s the victim of a hate crime
by Diana Zoga

(KMOV) — An on-line political magazine, FrontPage Magazine, published a photo of a man with a Star of David, carved into his back. News 4 interviewed the man, who says he was attacked on Compton Avenue, just south of downtown on August 14th.

Alaa Alsaegh says that two cars followed him as he drove on Compton. The drivers cut him off and Alsaegh says he pulled over. That’s when two men got out of a car, armed with a handgun. They got into Alsaegh’s car and attacked him with a knife.

Alsaegh showed us a photo that his friend took at the hospital. More than a month later, Alsaegh still has scars. News 4’s camera captured the outline of the Star of David, visible on Alsaegh’s back.

Alsaegh is a Muslim from Iraq. He says he recently posted a poem, online, expressing support for Jewish people in Israel. Alsaegh says that his attackers told him not to publish any more poems.

St Louis Police confirm that officers responded to a call for help around 10:45 a.m. on August 14th. The department referred News 4 to the local FBI office. Spokeswoman Rebecca Wu responded via email saying, “The FBI cannot comment”.

Alsaegh says the authorities have been investigating the attack, but have not made any arrests.

UK Police Trying to Locate Video Proof of Their Violence?

This post is from Tundra Tabloids today:

[We have] just learned from Martin Brennan, a former leader of the Australian EDL, is being sought after by the British police for some unknown reason.

According to Brennan, he has participated in the Tower Hamlets demonstration, as well as the wreath laying ceremony at the American embassy in downtown London on 9/11. He also attended with the EDL Anjem Choudary’s disgraceful gathering for the purpose of burning the US flag on the same day.

Martin says he also took the time to hurl some insults at Choudary and his group on the day, during which time he was assaulted by a police officer. He managed to record footage of this.

Martin Brennan also informs the TT that he has on his phone some video from the 9/11 demo. He was outside the main body of the EDL, and so captured some interesting things there. He was supposed to head back to a friend’s house to upload it to a pc and then to youtube, but changed his mind and stayed on in town.

According to an anonymous source, police intelligence have just been around to a friend’s house looking for him, offering money for intelligence on Brennan. He said he didn’t know where Martin was. According to the anonymous source, the police said: “we’ll pay for you to go to some demos plus a bit of extra in your pockets to tell us who’s who and what’s what”. That’s a direct quote from Martin according to the anonymous source.

According to the unnamed source, Matthew’s response was a rather direct:”F* off, I’ll do ten years in prison instead.”

But back to Martin. The long arm of British law is crashing down on dissent, it appears that his having some phone video footage of a police officer breaking the law is the catalyst for the hunt. After all, while he was filming them, they were filming him. If he does indeed have video evidence of police brutality against EDL members, then there would be a need to get it before it’s uploaded to You Tube.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

You may remember — or not — when Matt Stiddon was detained by the police last week. First they searched his house, including his garden, for several hours. They also searched the belongings of his roommate —

— and the roommate happens to be the ‘Martin’ named above. Matt doesn’t mention search warrants but I suppose they were duly filed. After looking through Matt things and spending a long time searching Martin’s possessions, including several trips out to their vehicle with Martin’s papers, they took Matt in to the station. There, they spent six hours searching his computer, copying information, etc. Finally, that night they let him go after telling him to appear in court in November.

As Matt said then:

I have had threats of violence, been followed and had my Landrover Discovery set on fire by the left-wing nut jobs that plague our country, the police even know the group responsible, yet no arrests or questioning to these people have been made to date.

When I first chose this path I understood that not only would I be fighting the jihad and its many forms but the politicians, the police and the appeasers of the left, this is the reality that we find ourselves in, in today’s world. I am [not] the first person to say I would rather not do this but until the powers to be take control of this situation then I will always be standing for human rights…

Yes, he’ll be standing…until they’ve knocked him and many others like him to their knees. But he, and we are the racists, the wrong-doers. Back when I knew it would come to this, I had no idea the police would turn into a Gestapo-arm of the state so quickly, so seamlessly.

Yet here we are, done so smoothly we never saw it coming. I sure hope they get that piece of film loaded to YouTube before the police find the phone. Will they pay for doing that, for revealing the criminal actions of the police? They already are paying. It will just be another installment.

Rappin’ With Mohammed in Trafalgar Square

Eid Festival in Trafalgar Square #6During the course of Counterjihad London 2011, a group of participants took a little field trip to Trafalgar Square to see the Eid Festival, which took place on Saturday September 24. The event must have been well-attended, because even though we got there after Mayor Boris Johnson left, there was still a large crowd.

The main activities were the performances on the sound stage and the selling of food and merchandise at a series of booths and tables spread around the perimeter of the square:

Hard up against Nelson’s Column was the centerpiece for the occasion, a cave-like stage for performers:

When we arrived, very loud drumming was being blared over the PA system. Not long afterwards, it gave way to “Muslim rap”. It was hard to make out the lyrics, but the singer seemed to be rappin’ with Mohammed or something similar. Since I couldn’t hear all the lines, I made up some of my own that fit the hip-hop beat:

We’re down with Mohammed, can ya hear what I said?
Better listen up, or get a fatwa on your head.

A huge screen on the other side of the fountain allowed everyone to see the rap singer clearly:

It provided a striking contrast with the naked nautical-themed statue in the middle of the fountain:

This beautifully decorated bus seemed to be a vending site for sweets and other halal refreshments:

The Association of Muslim Police was also prominently featured. We’ll have more on that later on.

The Wayfarer Returns

I just got back from London, and will compile a report about Counterjihad London 2011 after I’ve rested and recovered from jet lag.

In the meantime, here are some photos of notable landmarks visited during my sightseeing tours in the Greater London area. The first shot shows the former St. Mary’s Priory in (I think) Tottenham. You can see the niche containing a statue of the Virgin, with a cross above it. The inscription below the niche is the Ora Pro Nobis:

Now look at a close-up of the main entrance to the building:

“We Love You, Ya Mohammed Rasulullah”

BBC Speechless As Trader Tells Truth

Jolie Rouge left a link to a doomsday video that echoes what the Baron has been saying. The subtitle is: “The Collapse Is Coming…And Goldman Rules The World”

Of course the little anchorette who was “speechless” will no doubt still have her government job.

Hey, if this guy isn’t sleeping well, maybe we shouldn’t be, either? It won’t make us any less poor, but it provides a delusional sense of control if one lies awake and worries. Works for me. Kind of.

A comment from the Youtube page:

Run to dollars and treasuries?

I consider this guys motivations to be suspect.

Look! A guy who criticizes Goldman Sachs, who knows we’re heading for a collapse, and who pals around with some “smart investors!” He’s buying Dollars and Treasuries -I better go out and get some of those right away so I can protect myself and make money just like him!

What’s his name? Shill Plant?

He sounds mighty like some of our astute readers, no?

So I’ll amend my original statement: the Baron never did say he thought Goldman Sachs ran the world.

Birmingham Suicide Bombers Caught

Birmingham terrorism charges: Three of six charged accused of planning to be suicide bombersfull charges in detail

September 25, 2011

Four men have this evening been charged with preparing for an act of terrorism in the UK, and two more with failing to disclose information. One has additionally been charged with terrorist fundraising.

The men, all from Birmingham, were arrested a week ago as part of a major operation carried out by the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit.

The arrests were unarmed, pre-planned and intelligence-led.

A seventh man from the city, aged 20 and arrested on Thursday, continues to be questioned. Officers have until Thursday September 29 to charge, release or apply for a further warrant of detention.

The six charged are aged between 25 and 32 and will appear at West London Magistrates Court (Hammersmith) tomorrow afternoon.

Those charged are:

  • IRFAN NASSER (14/6/81) aged 30 of 55 Doris Road, Sparkhill
  • IRFAN KHALID (1/3/85) aged 26 of 35 Timbers Way, Sparkbrook
  • *ASHIK ALI (12/3/85) aged 26 of 23 White Street, Balsall Heath
  • RAHIN AHMED (28/7/86) aged 25 of 114 Moorcroft Road, Moseley
  • *BAHADER ALI (4/7/83) aged 28 of 27 Turner Street, Sparkbrook
  • MOHAMMED RIZWAN (3/2/79) aged 32 of 75 Asquith Road, Sparkbrook

I know what you’re going to say: “WHAT??!! Only ONE Mohammed?? However, the middle names of these terrorists have not been supplied, so who knows how many there really are.

*These two are brothers. Meanwhile, the two Irfans, Nasser and Khalid, seem to have accrued the most charges:

  • i. Travelling to Pakistan for training in terrorism including bomb making, weapons and poison making.
  • ii. Making a martyrdom film.
  • iii. Planning a bombing campaign.
  • iv. Planning a suicide bombing campaign/event.
  • v. Collecting money for terrorism.
  • vi. Advising and counselling the commission of terrorist acts by providing information about training in Pakistan
  • vii. Advising, counselling on explosives and detonators.
  • viii. Being concerned in the purchase of components and chemicals for a home made explosive device.
  • ix. Construction of a home made explosive device for terrorist acts.
  • x. Being concerned in recruiting persons for terrorist training.
  • xi. Being concerned in recruiting persons for terrorist acts.
  • xii. Stating an intention to be a suicide bomber.

These are busy boys: Traveling, raising money, film-making, constructing bombs, recruiting fellow jihadists…making poison??

No, these are busy, very evil men. What a lousy way to live. All that creativity and energy focused in the service of death.

And they’re homicide bombers, not suicide bombers. I wish they’d start calling them what they really are.

You can read the rest of the sordid story here. They ought to hang, but in England? Won’t happen.

New Report on Turkish Atrocities in Cyprus

The Baron asked that this report from Europe News be posted. It seems that more Turkish atrocities have been revealed, dating back to the 1970s.

Quelle surprise!

The Secret Report on Turkish Atrocities in Cyprus
by Panos Ioannides

Breaking: The secret report from Council of Europe on Turkish atrocities in Cyprus during their 1974 invasion has been recovered. This report documents the systematic and extensive human rights violations perpetrated by the Turkish army against the Greek Cypriot population, raping an murdering thousands in order to force a mass exodus and an ethnic cleansing of the northern third of Cyprus. Turkey has never been held responsible for these atrocities and, in spite of all principles of international law, is still permitted to be in control of the fruits of their 1974 aggression, the so-called Turkish Republic of North Cyprus.

Unfortunately, the report linked at Europe news, called “Cyprus Barbary” is not available if all you have is a dial-up connection. Or maybe not so “unfortunately”. Zenster kindly looked at it for me and says it’s dense diplo-speak which lowers your IQ as you attempt to read it. Clever, those bureaucrats.

As far as atrocities go, it would appear that Turkey is never held responsible for any of them, and pays no consequences for its arrogant denials about those million Armenians. It will be the same for the Cypriots.

Funny how it feels free to lecture Israel while it kills Christians and persecutes the Kurdish population in Turkey. Not to mention Turkey’s Kurdish Christians. Oy vey!

“Turkey” plus “atrocity” plus “denial” often end up in the same sentence when the subject turns to Erdogan’s country. He’s just maintaining an old cultural tradition.
