Police Raid Islamic Locations in Prague

In an interesting reversal of the usual pattern of events, police in the Czech Republic raided several Islamic locations today for “racism” and “xenophobia”, based on the distribution of a book of Islamic teachings. In Western Europe, Islam-critics are the only people who need to fear such accusations.

Among the establishments visited by the police was the Islamic Foundation in Prague.

Police in Prague intervened in Muslim places after being notified of racist book, seized ten persons

“Detectives from the police organized crime unit initiated criminal trial procedures, carried out because of the illegal activity of a certain person who is suspected of the publication and distribution of book propagating racism, antisemitism, xenophobia and violence against so-called inferior races,” Pavel Hanták, the spokesman for the unit, announced.

In addition to other places, policemen intervened at the headquarters of the Islamic Foundation in Prague in Politických vězňů street in Prague’s centre. According to its website, it is a place of prayer, where lectures, Arabic courses and preaching in both Arabic and the Czech language also take place.

After 2 p.m. five handcuffed persons were taken away. Later a few more followed. In the end, their number could reach a total of ten persons. Police did not want to confirm any number so far. The whole intervention had taken about four and a half hours.

One of the persons present at the places of intervention was the first secretary of the Indonesian embassy Wahono Yuliano, who along with other embassy’s employees was taking part in prayers. According to one of the witnesses, the first people released from the mosque were those who were ill, parents with children and then diplomats. Others remained inside.

Another intervention carried out by the police took place in the prayer room on Blatská street in Prague 9. According to an journalist, Muslims complained that police interrupted their prayers. Around 70 persons were in the building, including women and children.

The spokesman for the unit assured journalists that police operated “with highest consideration for persons who were present and respected their freedom of religion.”

House searches were carried in several other places. According to former Muslim Lukáš Lhoťan, intervention could likely be related to criminal charge he filed a few days ago.

“I believe it is related to the book Foundations of Tauhid — The Islamic Concept of God (Základy tauhídu – Islámský koncept Boha) by an author who is forbidden in Germany and other Western countries. The book is listed among other radical titles there. It is possible that this police intervention has to do something with this book,” Lhoťan added. The book in question that has been published by the Muslim organisation in Czech republic (Ústředí muslimských obcí) is also being sold by regular online bookstores. Police, however, do not want to specify the title. “We neither confirm nor deny that this book is concerned. We really won’t deliver any other information,” the spokesman for the unit stated.

A Call to Collective Resistance

Back in February, Rembrandt Clancy translated a batch of textual material and subtitled a video about the judicial persecution of Conny Axel Meier in Germany. Mr. Meier has been charged with “insult” for what he said about the judge in the case of Michael Mannheimer — who had himself been previously tried and convicted for “insult” by a German court.

As a part of his report, Rembrandt Clancy included among his translations the last four paragraphs of Michael Mannheimer’s manifesto reminding his fellow Islam-critics that “the German people have the right and duty to rise up against ALL forces, which are poised to abolish the German Constitution”. Now the translator has made the entire text available in English.

Michael Mannheimer’s Introduction to his “Call to Resistance of the German People pursuant to Article 20, Section 4 of the German Constitution”

Original Source: Michael Mannheimer Blog

The call for the implementation of Article 20, Section 4 of the German Constitution first appeared on 8 April 2011 as a reader’s comment on PI [Politically Incorrect], and shortly thereafter as an editorial contribution for and now can be found on numerous other national and international websites as well. It is from my own hand. There are no organisations behind this call, neither is there a political party or a particular Islam-critical website behind it. Its origin lies in my own heart alone and in my knowledge about the tremendous danger to which our country is exposed through an increasingly accelerating Islamisation.

Article 20, Section 4 of the Constitution reads as follows:

All Germans shall have the right to resist any person seeking to abolish this constitutional order, if no other remedy is available. [Official English translation of the German Bundestag]

I am fully conscious of the consequences of my Call. There is now sufficient knowledge of Islam to allow everyone an informed assessment.

If we in Germany do not take immediate action, then after just a few years we will be incapable of it for demographic reasons. I have initiated this Call out of deep concern for our country, our splendid occidental civilisation and the future of our children and grandchildren. The political elites, in their blind pro-Islamic policy, supported massively by most of the media, ignore the legitimate anxiety of their people concerning Islamisation and they continue unabated with this policy, which is against the will of the people as well as against the content and spirit of the Constitution.

The German people must therefore take their fate into their own hands. It remains to be seen whether they are in the position to do that.

— Michael Mannheimer, 9 April 2011

“This unwritten but higher right, which constitutes a right to resistance whenever the installed, codified law turns into injustice, is the basis of what, in more than 2000 years of European history and culture, has been contemplated and conceived as natural law. That right is the ultimate fundamental principle for the culture and politics of Europe; for it is by this conception of a higher law over and beyond the entire codified, installed and abstractly conceived law, that in the end we have the right and duty to measure whether that which is held as valid is in reality also just.”

— Prof. Dr. Günter Rohrmoser, German social philosopher

Call to General Resistance of the German People Pursuant to Article 20, Section 4 of the German Constitution

Original Source: Michael Mannheimer Blog

A public appeal to all freedom-loving citizens of Germany and to all people in our country who wish our children and children’s children to live their lives in freedom and human dignity.

Now that even the Church is embracing Islam, the worst imaginable enemy of freedom, equality and brotherhood of all men, the last bastion of resistance against misanthropic Fascism has fallen to Islam.

Islam is Deceit

Most students of the Great Jihad are aware of scripturally sanctioned lying (taqiyya) and misdirection (kitman) as practiced in Islam. In the following video, Dr. Bill Warner discusses a third type of Islamic deception known as tawriya, which is based in the hadith and means to say something that has a different meaning for the speaker than for the listener:

Sharia Watch UK Launched in House of Lords

The following account of yesterday’s events at the House of Lords was originally published at the International Civil Liberties Alliance website.

Sharia Watch UK Launched in House of Lords

Today ICLA attended an event at the House of Lords at which a new and important organisation, Sharia Watch UK, was launched. The new organisation will campaign for recognition of the dangers posed by sharia law in the UK, particularly in relation to women’s rights. ICLA has been highlighting similar issues as part of its Victims of Sharia Action Network (VOSAN) initiative and welcomes the creation of the new organisation.

Sharia Watch UK was introduced by Anne-Marie Waters at the House of Lords event who emphasized several times that she was only interested in telling the truth. The event was hosted by Baroness Caroline Cox who has campaigned against the use of sharia law in tribunals and councils across the UK. Lady Cox has argued that sharia law “undermines the most fundamental principles of equality enshrined in British law” in respect of its treatment of women.

The new Sharia Watch UK web resource aims to highlight the impact of Islamism in Britain, and the often hidden face of is proponents. Sharia tribunals and councils currently operate a system of family law in the UK which denies women unilateral divorce rights — even in cases of domestic violence. Sharia family law also denies child custody to women and treats their testimony as worth less than that of their husbands.

At the launch a new report, ‘Sharia Law — Britain’s Blind Spot’, was published. The report analyses the beliefs of apparently “mainstream” Muslim organisations and argues that such beliefs represent an extremist view and should be regarded as such. Some of the senior figures involved in these groups advocate not only sharia law, but “jihad” against non-Muslims. Furthermore, they express a desire for a full Islamic state — including barbaric punishments — in Britain. Such groups have been represented as “moderate” and endorsed by the legacy media and mainstream public figures.

Sharia Watch UK will show the public, and our political leaders, the extent of the threat that sharia and Islamic extremism pose to the rights and freedoms of women, freedom of speech, and democratic principles.

It’s WAYCIST Time for Cliven Bundy

“Who cares? He could believe Bette Midler is the 12th Imam, it doesn’t change the fact that the government has sent SWAT teams to collect a tax bill from a free citizen.”

— Kira Davis

The legacy media have been waiting for this moment: a sound bite that proves Cliven Bundy is a WAYCIST! Anyone who respects the Constitution and resists federal tyranny must be a racist, right?

You’ve probably seen (or read) the carefully edited words of Cliven Bundy about blacks in North Las Vegas. If the media were honest, they’d play the entire unedited clip:

But that wouldn’t fit the “narrative”, would it?

Here is a brief commentary on the whole sordid business by a movie producer named Kira Davis:

Reaping the Whirlwind in the UK

Our British correspondent JP noticed the growing public anger against immigration and Islamization as demonstrated by the comments left on online media articles. He sends this note along with a representative selection of comments:

I was struck by the blistering anger of the commentators at Fraser Nelson’s recent piece on “British” jihadis who travelled to Syria.

Although these comments are restricted to Daily Telegraph, readers I think this anger is widespread and has been steadily mounting as a response to the Government’s appeasement of Islam, not only in relation to Lee Rigby’s murder but also the unrelenting stories about the Islamic school plot, Sharia finance, Sharia law, the banning of Robert Spencer/Pamela Geller — I could go on.

Particularly disturbing I think is the picture of police “pleading” with Muslim women. This is perhaps the root of the problem — we are living in a progressive liberal society which has forgotten how to respond to hostile forces.

See also Fraser Nelson’s 3 April article where he described the success story of “British” Muslim integration — an article which was closed to comments after only two hours, and where two of my three comments were deleted.

A brief snip from the article in question:

Terrorism in the UK: Social media is now the biggest jihadi training camp of them all

by Fraser Nelson

Unable to control online radicalism, police have little option but to plead with Muslim women to dissuade their menfolk from enlisting

If an Islamic terrorist is apprehended in Detroit or blows himself up in Stockholm, it doesn’t usually take long to trace their career progression back to Britain. The CIA despairingly refers to “Londonistan”, but the phrase doesn’t quite do justice to Britain’s ability to incubate terrorism all over the country. For various reasons — chiefly our being quicker to accept asylum-seekers than expel villains — Britain has ended up as a kind of finishing school for jihadis…

And now selected comments that were posted in response to the article:


For decades the myopic liberal-left whose agenda so often appears to be nothing more than Utopian wishful thinking based on the wilfully self-deluded view that “wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone in the world was nice so we’ll pretend they are” have treated all Muslims as victims of neocolonialism and Western oppression, which means every effort must now be made to accommodate them through the pursuit of a toxic policy of multiculturalism.

Even when Muslim fundamentalists have demonstrated by their direct actions that they are the most illiberal, repressive, authoritarian proponents of a religion mired in a dark age time warp, they are still accorded “victim” status by the liberal-left whose deluded expectation seems to be that by just by living here they will drag themselves out of the 7th Century by absorbing Western values through a form of benign political and social osmosis.

And then there’s the excuse they are not really “Muslims” but “Islamists” which in the lexicon of the liberal-left appears to describe an entirely different and unrelated group of people. The fact that many so-called moderate Muslims at best appear happy to turn a blind eye to the activities of their militant co-religionists or at worst tacitly agree with their views is conveniently brushed aside.

But now that the wind has been sown by these misguided and frankly arrogant Utopians without any mandate or even reference to the British people, we are now reaping the whirlwind. Everything from schools being warned against Muslim girls being sent abroad to marry or to be genitally mutilated to the more than 50 commuters blown to bits by Muslim terrorists in the 7/7 London transport bombing, the attack on Glasgow airport, shoe bomber Richard Reid and other plots to attack British aircraft, plus the fact that police have, or are investigating literally of hundreds of plots by militants to attack targets in the UK.

Then there’s the sexual grooming of under-age British girls, poppy-burnings, demonstrations against returning British troops where placards have been waved describing them a “child murders” and declaring “Islam will triumph”, street patrols in so-called “Muslim” areas in which gays, women and drinkers have been attacked, a continuing culture of “honour” killings and arranged marriages and electoral frauds involving exclusively Muslim perpetrators. Throw in the “Trojan horse” Islamification of schools plus the danger posed by the return of hundreds of “British” Muslims now fighting in Syria and of course, who can forget the butchering of Lee Rigby.

I could go on but despite the fact that these are all matters of record the liberal-left still appears willing to either turn a blind eye to, or make excuses for them. The chickens are now coming home to roost with a vengeance and they are laying some very rotten eggs in the UK nest.


‘Unable to control online radicalism’.

So the Police admit they are virtually powerless to stop this vile practise yet they have no problem arresting and charging people who insult Islam or Muslims. We already see people going to prison for spouting hatred of this faith under the hate crime laws but now we know they only work one way.

If we want to live in a country worth living in then Islam must be removed completely. This vile faith has no place in a civilised society and this article proves it when those charged with keeping the peace admit they are powerless to do so.

Gates of Vienna News Feed 4/24/2014

A security guard at a Christian mission hospital in Kabul shot and killed three American doctors today, and wounded at least one other person. Witnesses say the attack was unprovoked. No motive has yet been adduced for the slayings, but it is possible that the killer was mentally disturbed, under financial stress, or acting out his revenge for an unhappy childhood.

In other news, members of the Islamic terror group Boko Haram threatened to kill the 230 Nigerian schoolgirls they abducted if searchers don’t stop looking for them.

Those Racist UKIP Posters

The United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) and its leader Nigel Farage have got themselves in a spot of bother over the past few days over some WAYCIST campaign posters.

You see, UKIP is fielding candidates in next month’s elections for the European Parliament. Based on the latest polling results, Mr. Farage and his party can expect to do extremely well in those elections. The Powers That Be are alarmed at that possibility, and have reacted accordingly: Nigel Farage is a “racist”! I mean, anyone who thinks the job of Her Majesty’s government is to act in the interests of the British people must be a racist, mustn’t he?

The following “interview” of Nigel Farage from Sky News gives the flavor of the arguments being used against UKIP. In the background behind Mr. Farage you can see a billboard of the poster at the top of this post, which an army general has attacked as “disrespectful” of the flag.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this video:

Below is another UKIP campaign poster, which in my opinion isn’t racist enough:

To paint an accurate picture of Modern Multicultural Britain, the young woman on the bus should have been surrounded by Jamaicans and Bengalis and Pakistanis and women in hijab, not white people. The last time I was in London (two years ago) white people were well under 50% of the people I saw on the Tube. The buses were somewhat more white, but they were still very culturally enriched. I assume that most white people either take taxis or drive their own cars.

Our British correspondent JP — who sent the posters and the links for the articles excerpted below — includes this background note:

Paul Sykes is the businessman who funded UKIP’s poster campaign. According to comments left at Mr. Sykes’ Telegraph article, even posts at the Guardian denouncing the posters as racist have been met with disapproval by Guardian readers — some of whom appear to be coming over to the UKIP side.

It is all very encouraging and seems to catch a mood also taking root at Bundy Ranch as articulated by Mike Vanderboegh.

Excerpts from the article by Paul Sykes:

No More Surrendering to EU Bureaucrats

by Paul Sykes

An outright victory for Nigel Farage will be nothing less than a political earthquake

In Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Brutus speaks of a tide in the affairs of men that, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Miss the tide and only shallows and miseries lie in wait.

Next month’s European elections represent such a moment in the life of our nation. Overwhelming public support for Ukip — the only political party advocating immediate withdrawal from the European Union — could mean we catch a tide that will restore our proud tradition of national independence. But if we miss our chance, we will be swept ever further into the shoals and sandbanks of a Federal Europe.


I have spent a great deal of my own money trying to raise awareness of the ways in which the EU has eroded our national sovereignty, and attempting to win the British people a democratic vote on what has stealthily been done in their name these past two decades.

Nowhere is this more pertinent than in the area of immigration. The Single European Act, signed into UK law in 1986, guarantees the free movement of capital and labour across the borders of the 28 countries that now make up the EU. Disgracefully, this measure was adopted without a referendum of the British people.

It was a cruel and heartless act because competition from people from much poorer countries has forced down the wages of British workers — to the shame of Labour MPs and the trade union movement. It also means 485 million people have the right to move to Britain at any time they please. We may have a UK Border Force. But when it comes to the 27 other countries in the EU, we have no borders, and no force.

Eurabia Strikes Again

The following essay, aptly called “Serpent’s Tongue”, was written by Joshua Pundit and posted at his blog earlier this week.

First he reminds the estimable Lady Ashton, the foreign minister of the EU, of some of the history of Hebron’s suffering at the hands of the British. Then he responds to her woman-from-Mars explanation for how things are going in the country the Middle East and its co-dependents would like to see obliterated.

This could serve as a coda to Bat Ye’or’s book Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis. The earlier print edition has this description, which was also used for the Kindle version:

This book is about the transformation of Europe into “Eurabia,” a cultural and political appendage of the Arab/Muslim world. Eurabia is fundamentally anti-Christian, anti-Western, anti-American, and antisemitic.The institution that has been responsible for this transformation, and that continues to propagate its ideological message, is the Euro-Arab Dialogue, developed by European and Arab politicians and intellectuals over the past thirty years. [my emphasis —D]

Of course, the Eurabia reality means that Israel must disappear, so Lady Ashton steps up to drop one more rock onto the wall Europe and Arabia are building in an attempt to create this ghetto. For sixty years the Left has been attempting to build these walls, and for sixty years Israel keeps dismantling them.

One advantage of having an established book on Kindle is that individual highlights from the text begin to accumulate and are propagated on the book’s page. This book has a goodly number of such notations, to wit, this one, which six readers highlighted:

“Therefore, collective hostility to Israel became a linchpin of European unity.”

In a larger sense what Bat Ye’or — and Joshua Pundit — are describing in the particulars could be viewed on a meta-level as scapegoating. This dynamic is deeply entrenched on the Left; employed as a deliberate strategy it is only that: strategic maneuvering. The end goal is retention of control.

Enter Stage Right, Lady Ashton, titular minister of a soviet polity, the European Union. From Stage Left, Joshua Pundit, armed with his keyboard and his faculty of discernment. She has spoken and he has read her interpretation of what happened last week. What he has perceived in Lady Ashton’s remarks is another in the endless confabulations of SerpentSpeak that leftist politicians the world over use to discuss Israel. It does indeed take a forked tongue to be able to talk as she does…

The Serpent’s Tongue — An Open Letter To Catherine Ashton, EU Policy Chief

by Joshua Pundit

Dear Lady Ashton,

I noted with interest your remarks and your concerns about what you called “recent events in the West Bank, including in East Jerusalem, which are not conducive to the climate of trust and cooperation needed for the current peace negotiations to succeed.”

Your remarks were exclusively addressed to Israel. You were ‘concerned’ about Israel declaring something like 2.5 square miles (1 square KM) of vacant land near the Israeli community of Gush Etzion — which you, of course, call a ‘settlement’ — as Israeli state land. You’re also concerned about what you referred to as the authorization of a ‘new settlement’ in Hebron, and you “particularly deplore the recent confiscation of EU Humanitarian Assistance provided to vulnerable civilians in the Jabal Al Baba Community in the E1 area.”

First off, just between us…don’t you think your use of language is somewhat suspect? One might almost think you were biased. You refer to Gush Etzion as a ‘settlement’ when after all, it’s an established Jewish community that dates back to 1924 on land legally purchased by Jews from Arab landowners. Jews continually inhabited it and worked the land except for a 19-year period between 1948 and 1967. And when you speak about vulnerable civilians, may I remind you of how the residents were ethnically cleansed in 1948 by Jordan’s Arab Legion, and that almost 200 able bodied Jewish males were executed in cold blood after they surrendered and were guaranteed safe conduct to the Israeli lines with their women and children? May we recall who commanded the troops who committed that atrocity and who oversaw the ethnic cleansing of all the communities in Judea and Samaria as well as East Jerusalem? It was British officers, Lady Ashton, under your own Colonel John Glubb.

Project much?

Then you say you particularly deplore what you refer to as “confiscation of EU Humanitarian Assistance provided to vulnerable civilians in the Jabal Al Baba community in the E1 area.” That ‘community’, as you call it, refers to a handful of Arab squatters living for a matter of a few weeks in EU-funded caravans in a contested vacant hillside within the city limits of the Israeli city of Maale Adumim, a city that Israel isn’t going to give up in any peace agreement. And as we both know, E-1 is necessary to Israeli security needs in order to connect Maale Adumim to the rest of the Jerusalem area, so it doesn’t become surrounded on all sides by those extraordinarily peaceful Arabs whom call themselves Palestinians.

So in your world, Gush Etzion is a ‘settlement’ after decades of existence on legally purchased land, while a few caravans parked illegally for a matter of weeks on Israeli land with the EU’s connivance that you give the name of ‘Jabal Al Baba’ is a ‘community’? It seems obvious that you have one set of rules for Jews and quite another for everyone else, and there’s a word for that, isn’t there Lady Ashton? And isn’t it more than just a little hypocritical to ‘especially deplore’ the Israelis confiscating what was obviously an attempt by the EU to unlawfully create facts on the ground in what at best can be considered a ‘disputed’ area? If ‘humanitarian aid’ was the purpose, why not put those caravans somewhere in Area A, where the Palestinian Authority controls things? Again, one might almost suspect you of — heaven forbid — bias.

Hebron? Ah yes, another one of those awful ‘settlements’. This one amounts to Jews being allowed to move into a property they legally purchased, one four story house. Although to be honest, it could probably be more accurately described as a ‘repurchase’. You see, Hebron had a sizable Jewish community that lived there for centuries until 1929, when the Arab residents of the town turned on their neighbors on orders of the British appointed Grand Mufti and began raping and murdering them — while the British troops who were supposed to be keeping order did absolutely nothing to stop them.
