Aldo Sterone on Trèbes, Part Two: The Pointless Death of Arnaud Beltrame

Below is the follow-up to last night’s video of Aldo Sterone, the Algerian-French auto pundit, talking about the recent Islamic terror attack in Trèbes.

Notes from the translator:

This is the video (in French) that Also Sterone is referring to. The book he mentions wasn’t translated during the thousand years of its existence, even though it is a very important book on the Shariah. If I understand it correctly, it’s as important as Reliance of the Traveller.

Islam in America: “We Bring Everything… and the Quran!”

Zvi Yehezkeli is an Israeli journalist and filmmaker who is fluent in Arabic. In the following documentary about Islam in America, he created a false identity for himself as a Palestinian so he could gain entry to places where infidels are normally not allowed, and hear things that are normally hidden from the kuffar. He visited the Dar al-Hijra Mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, where Anwar al-Awlaki used to be the imam. He went to Dearborn, Michigan and was given a tour by the Arab-American police chief, Ron Haddad. He visited CAIR headquarters in Tampa and talked to its director, Hassan Shibly. And he had some interesting conversations with Muslim taxi drivers in Miami.

Warning to Berlin Schoolchildren: If You Don’t Believe in Allah, You Will Burn

Many thanks to Ava Lon for translating this article from Berliner Zeitung:

Religious bullying: Second-grader threatened with death by classmates

by Martin Klesmann
March 24, 2018

[Photo caption (not shown): So far people have been talking: The boy who threatened the girl continues to attend the Paul Simmel Elementary School in Tempelhof]

At many inner-city schools, conflicts among students are now religiously motivated. Classmates are being pressured if they don’t observe the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan. Anti-Semitic remarks are also part of everyday school life for many teachers. “There are already many examples of religious bullying in schools today,” a Neukölln headmistress said recently. Now yet another incident concerning anti-Semitic tendencies is being talked about. This time it’s about disturbing incidents at Paul Simmel Elementary School in the eastern Tempelhof. It’s about death threats among children.

The daughter of a 41-year-old man, who wants to remain anonymous, is a student in that school. “Our daughter was mobbed by Muslim students because she doesn’t believe in Allah,” says the man in conversation with the Berliner Zeitung.

For about three years now there have been religiously-motivated incidents at school, he explains. The most recent one was at the end of February. The delicate daughter had been asked by a classmate if she was Jewish, the father reports. Since one parent is of Jewish origin, she said yes, to which the student threateningly repeated the word “Jew” several times.

In an earlier incident — when the classmates didn’t yet know about the Jewish parent — his daughter had even been threatened with death. The physically superior student had said to the then-second-grader that she should be beaten and then killed because she doesn’t believe in Allah. “We, the parents, were scolded by the classmate as stupid, because we don’t raise our daughter to believe in Allah,” says the father. Earlier, about three years ago, according to her father, something similar had happened to the girl. Anyone who doesn’t believe in Allah will be burned, as a classmate allegedly explained to the girl.

Themed in the classroom

The father is angry that the headmaster obviously doesn’t use these failures as an opportunity to address them publicly in circulars. He wishes that terms such as “tolerance” and “freedom of religion” would be a permanent part of the teaching in the classroom. “There was a confrontation between the students each time,” says the father. The incident was discussed in the presence of the headmaster and social worker. “For my daughter, this confrontation was traumatic,” says the father.

The longtime headmaster Thomas Albrecht confirms that he is aware of the incidents and that he is taking them seriously. “Basically, the students are heard while in disputes, and then appropriate steps are being taken.” So it allegedly happened in the three cases. The parents were invited. “There was a tolerance project in the class,” he says. In all incidents they have coordinated a further course of action with the school inspectorate and police.

The educational administration has also been aware of it for a long time. Over the next few days there will be a meeting with parents, principals and school inspectors. “We take this very seriously,” says Beate Stoffers, a spokeswoman for Senator Scheeres. So far people have been talking, and the boy is still attending the school.

In a letter to the father, the headmaster states: “I had already considered the incident with the anti-Semitic insults from a year ago as closed.” Everything was allegedly discussed at official meetings and during class leader hours. The father, on the other hand, disagrees. “The Senate would have to offer the schools a tool to not only tackle such individual violations of the rules, but especially such topics as tolerance, freedom of religion, Western values and the peaceful coexistence should be continuously conveyed to the children.” And it would have worked much better if the parents had become more involved.

Declaration by French Intellectuals: “We want to live in a world where no religion lays down the law”

The following declaration on the principle of secular government, “L’appel des 100 intellectuels contre “le séparatisme islamiste”, originally appeared in Le Figaro on March 19. It was signed by a hundred French intellectuals, including Ibn Warraq, who kindly sent the introduction that is posted below.

The declaration was translated into English and published at the Clarion Project. Since then it has been reposted at the New English Review and Jihad Watch.


by Ibn Warraq

Although the original declaration was the initiative of Stephane Breton, an associate professor at École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales [EHESS] and a documentary film-maker, so many amendments, corrections, and additions were suggested during many collective discussions by many others who eventually signed the declaration, that one must see it as a truly collective effort— a joint initiative.

The most important idea behind the text is “Republicanism”, the fact that it is signed by Republicans, whether of the left or right. Although these intellectuals have signed a joint declaration, this does not mean that they all agree on everything, but they are all, nonetheless, totally committed to the defence of the Republic, a term with a far greater resonance and significance in France than in the Anglo-Saxon world. For the French, the Republic is a civic space in which divergent political opinions can coexist.

These intellectuals of all persuasions are very conscious of the history of the long, violent wars of religion that tore France apart; they do not wish to witness such terrible religious conflicts again. That is the historical reason that gives the term “secularism” [laïcité] in France a particular nuance and importance that is hard sometimes for the non-French to grasp. The three principles of the neutrality of the state, the freedom of religious exercise, and public powers related to the church are enshrined in the 1905 French law on the Separation of the Churches and State. The Republic does not recognize, pay, or subsidize any religious sect. Accordingly, from 1 January, 1906 following the enactment of this law, all expenses related to the exercise of religion were removed from state budgets, departments and municipalities.

Some of the signatories have personal experience of the pernicious effects of the new laws designed to protect the tender sensibilities of Muslims, and only Muslims. For example, the award-winning historian Georges Bensoussan was acquitted in March 2017 of charges of incitement against Muslims; he had quoted an Algerian scholar and said, “in French Arab families, babies suckle anti-Semitism with their mother’s milk.”

Another signatory, Mohamed Louizi, is being taken to court for defamation for having implied that the recently elected French President Emmanuel Macron had been a hostage to the Islamist vote. Louizi has an intimate knowledge of Islamists, since he’s former member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Several others among the signees are also ex-Muslims such as Walid al-Husseini, Boualem Sansal, and myself, Ibn Warraq. They, too, have first-hand knowledge of the ideologies of the Islamists. All value the freedom of and from religion which includes the right to leave or change one’s religion, or not to have any religion. The presence of women such as Fatiha Boudjahlat and Fawzia Zouari underlines the need to defend the freedom of women to live their lives without interference from Islamic fundamentalists. Many are distinguished philosophers (Alain Finkielkraut, Luc Ferry, Renée Fregosi, Vincent Descombres, Rémi Brague, Philippe de Lara, Jean-Pierre Le Goff, Damien le Guay, and Yves-Charles Zarka), others are historians, essayists (Pascal Bruckner), and professors. Some have served as ministers or advisors in past governments, such Bernard Kouchner, Luc Ferry, and Patrice Champion. All are dedicated to secularism, and the firm separation of state and religion, and all, of course, value free discussions of all and any ideas, wherever they may lead.

Their fears are founded on real facts, not irrational fears of foreigners. The well-known Islamologist Gilles Kepel has remarked upon the inexorable rise of Islamist propaganda and proselytism in universities, promoting the ideas of the Salafists and the Muslim Brotherhood. Thankfully, the French authorities have recently shut down twenty mosques and prayer halls they found to be preaching radical Islamic ideology — that is, preaching hatred of non-Muslims, and advocating jihad.

The suburbs are rife with Islamic militants proselytizing among the young, imposing sharia on all, especially women, segregating swimming pools, demanding halal food, and so on. Incidents of anti-Semitism in France have risen dramatically, almost all of it coming from Muslims. But if I were to say so in France, I might well be prosecuted for “Islamophobia”.


100 French Intellectuals Denounce Islamist Separatism

by Leslie Shaw
March 21, 2018

A group of 100 diverse French intellectuals denounced Islamist totalitarianism in the newspaper Le Figaro on March 19, 2018. The following is a translation of their statement made by Clarion contributor Leslie Shaw:

We are citizens of differing and often diametrically opposed views, who have found agreement in expressing our concern in the face of the rise of Islamism. We are united not by our affinities, but by the feeling of danger that threatens freedom in general and not just freedom of thought.

That which unites us today is more fundamental than that which will undoubtedly separate us tomorrow.

Islamist totalitarianism seeks to gain ground by every means possible and to represent itself as a victim of intolerance. This strategy was demonstrated some weeks ago when the SUD Education 93 teachers’ union proposed a training course that included workshops on state racism from which white people were barred.

Aldo Sterone on the Terror Attack in Trèbes, Part One

The video below is the first part of a rant by the Algerian-French auto pundit Aldo Sterone. In this clip Mr. Sterone addresses himself to the recent Islamic terror attack in Trèbes, where a mujahid who had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State shot three people to death and took hostages in a supermarket. A gendarme who exchanged himself for one of the hostages died several days later from his wounds.

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

Below are excerpts from three articles about the attack in Trèbes and the death of the gendarme who traded himself for one of the hostages. First, from The Independent:

Trèbes Siege: Three People Dead in French Supermarket ‘Terror Attack’, Police Say

Three people have been killed and around a dozen others injured in a suspected terror attack in Trèbes in the south of France after a gunman claiming allegiance to Isis took hostages in a supermarket.

The attacker, 26-year-old Redouane Lakdim, who was known to authorities for petty crimes, struck at the Super U shop in Trèbes, near Toulouse, on Friday morning, killing one person by shooting them in the head before taking others hostage.

Earlier, a policeman was shot and wounded while jogging with colleagues in Carcassonne, a 15-minute drive away, by the same suspect, the secretary-general of the SGP Police-FO union told the Associated Press.

Special police units were sent to the scene and local authorities blocked roads and urged residents to stay away. Officers later stormed the supermarket and killed the attacker.

A supermarket customer who was in the shop at the time told France Info: “A man cried and fired a lot of gunshots. I saw a fridge door, I told people to come find shelter.

“There were 10 of us and we stayed there for one hour. There were more gunshots and we left by the back exit. He shouted Allah something, I didn’t see him.”

German Judge Throws the Book at Culture-Enricher: Six Years for Raping an Old Lady Five Times

The following report by Egri Nök was published earlier at Vlad Tepes in a slightly different form.

Six Years For Enricher Who Raped 82-Year-Old Lady Five Times, Finds German Court

by Egri Nök

An original translation from Focus:

He Raped An 82-Year-Old Five Times: Now Dzengis D. Faces Jail

March 27, 2018

What Dzengis D. allegedly did is hard to bear: it appears that last summer he abused an 82-year-old, raped her five times.

The old lady was under his control for about an hour, and had to endure the humiliating torment. Now Dzengis D. has been sentenced.

The crime took place in Wilhelmsburg [Hamburg]: On the morning of July 8, 2017, the 29-year-old broke into the apartment of the old lady through her open balcony door. This was the beginning of the 82-year-old’s torment: for about an hour, Dzengis D. repeatedly raped her, five times in total. Before he fled, he stole €100 from the 82-year-old.

There is evidence beyond doubt that the defendant was the perpetrator, announces the judge on Tuesday. In the apartment of the 82-year-old, the investigators found among other things the defendant’s mobile phone, which had slipped from his trousers during the crime.

The old lady suffered several injuries. Since the 29-year-old is HIV positive, she had to undergo HIV prophylaxis with severe side effects, and until this day, she suffers from the long-term effects of the deed. According to Georg Haller, chairman of the criminal chamber, the old lady barely dares to leave the house anymore, or even to open the windows for fresh air. She suffers from a sleep disorder.

On Tuesday the court found the defendant guilty of grave rape and intentional battery and theft. He will have to go to jail for six years. The Federal Prosecutor had demanded six years and ten months jail time, the defense lawyer had pleaded for four or five years.

The deed evoked disbelief and shock among everyone involved in the trial, said judge Haller. “To rape an 82-year-old woman for one hour can only be met with absolute lack of understanding.” He added, unusually emotional for an experienced judge: “The whole crime is just reprehensible.”

The 29-year-old was calculating and careful during his deed. Before he raped the woman for the first time, he handed her her asthma spray that she asked for. “To put it bluntly: The defendant isn’t ill, he is simply evil,” said Haller. The 29-year-old, measly and bald, held his hands in front of his face and accepted the verdict with lowered head.

[Whimsical interpolation from the Baron:

The judge added, “I’m warning you, young man: next time it will be the comfy chair!”]

Sweden Will Not Be Any Different From Great Britain

Our Swedish correspondent LN sends this report on the latest PC madness from Absurdistan.

Sweden Will Not Be Any Different From Great Britain

by LN

Same Narrowness — Same Idiocy

…if nitwit PC politicians exert their will.

The governing parties — the Social Democrats plus the Green Party — want to see stricter rules to stop so-called politically suspect persons — “right-wing extremists” — or persons deemed “politically extreme” to cross the border into the God-pardoned Nordic humanitarian superpower.

EU sanctions lists or tightened legislation are also proposed. The Moderates view the ban favorably and wonder why it has not already been introduced.

“Social Democrats want to see stricter rules to stop so-called religious and political extremists from entering Sweden to spread “hate speech”. Among other things, The party wants the EU to establish sanctions lists against unwanted people; in the past, countries like Great Britain have banned Islam critics from entering the country,” writes SVT.Nyheter [Swedish television].

People who spread “hate” should not travel to Sweden. This is proposed by the Social Democrats, who want to introduce various measures so that so-called extremists will not enter the country.

The ban will apply to both Muslim and Christian extremists, and to so-called right-wing extremists.

“Unfortunately, we have seen a number of examples of people from the political and religious environment who have come to Sweden to spread hatred and threats, which should be denied entry into Sweden,” says Anders Ygeman, Group Leader of Social Democrats in Parliament and former Minister of the Interior to SVT.Nyheter.

Secondly, the Social Democrats want the police, the Migration Board and the Foreign Affairs Administration to better understand “hatred and threat predators” and, secondly, want the EU to establish a sanctions list that prevents such persons from ever entering the Schengen Area.

What Lies in Wait For Us, If We Do Not Stop Islam

The essay below was published as a guest piece on the Jürgen Fritz blog. Many thanks to JLH for the translation:

What Lies in Wait For Us, If We Do Not Stop Islam

A guest essay by Barbara Köster

Everyone is talking about Islamization and whether Islam is part of Germany. There are no news reports where Islam does not make at least second mention. Think that’s the high water mark? You’re way off. Read here what is still in store, as specifically as you have never heard before. From your dog to your wine cellar to your gay neighbor. Barbara Köster describes in unprecedented clarity and detail what awaits us if we do not stop Islam.


A word in your ear dear reader, in case you see Islam as no problem for you yourself. I would like to try to delineate what possibilities there are and what you will be facilitating if you support them, accept Islamization or even intentionally precipitate it. You must decide if you want to live like that.

To All House and Apartment Owners and Renters

You own real estate illegitimately. It rightfully belongs to the Muslims. The same is true of movable possessions that you have until now regarded as your own property. It is just that the time for transfer of your supposed property to its true owners has not yet arrived.

To All Female Singles

Marry as soon as possible or you will have to move in with your parents or uncles or siblings. A woman living alone is a prostitute. A property owner is required not to have any apartments available for such women. Residential communities of women and men who are not related to each other are likewise impossible in Islamic culture. Suspicion of improper sexual activity.

To All Male Singles

You, too, should marry as soon as possible. Unmarried men are not well liked In Islamic society. Marriage is a quasi-religious duty.

To All Homosexuals

You should know. The death penalty applies to you.

To All Married People

In Islamic law, only marriage between a man and a woman is valid — a man may have up to four wives. Islamic marriage is a usufruct agreement.[1] The man acquires the right to the use of his wife’s/wives’ sexual organs. So the fact of rape in marriage is not easily proved. The model of the Prophet Mohammed applies for husbands — in their marital union with their wives, they are the prophet. This is about power and authority.

For married women, the example is not Mohammed but his wives. This is about obedience. The man-woman relationship is one of super-ordination and subordination. Family ties come before marital ties. In Islam, “family” is not the isolated nuclear family, which is regarded as a Western symptom of decadence, but the extended family. While the family as a social unit is untouchable, the couple relationship is always vulnerable because of the ease with which men can achieve separation through disguised prostitution like “temporary marriage” and through the allowed practice of keeping a concubine.

The Social Justice Halfwits Who Are Ruining YouTube

The following YouTube video by Pat Condell is a brief introduction to another video, “Human Rights for Rapists”, which is available on BitChute but not on YouTube. The reason why Mr. Condell didn’t bother to upload it to YouTube is that he knows the Google apparatchiks will take it down as soon as it goes up, or at the very least consign it to YouTube Jail.

CAVEAT: Mr. Condell uses some naughty words in his descriptions of the SJWs at YouTube and Twitter:

Hat tip: Steen.

Two Words the CBC Won’t Mention

In the following video, Vlad Tepes interviews Dr. Bill Warner of the Center for the Study of Political Islam about a recent CBC news report on a young “Canadian” mujahid named Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy. Mr. Bahnasawy was convicted in the USA of plotting a major terror attack in New York City, which he said would be on the scale of 9/11.

I won’t embed the odious CBC report, but here it is, in case anyone wants to watch it. It never mentions jihad, and has almost nothing about Islam in it. The only thing we find out about the young mujahid is that he was an atheist, and bipolar. His parents think he deserves a “second chance”.

Dr. Warner discusses the “dead elephant in the room” that’s missing from the CBC video: Mohammed and the Islamic doctrine of jihad:

Below are excerpts from a more recent CBC article on the same topic. Notice that this one actually mentions the word “jihad” — because the junior mujahid uses it himself to describe his planned atrocity:

Canadian parents plead for mercy ahead of son’s sentencing in NYC bomb plot

Prosecutors say he’s a threat and deserves a life sentence; parents say he’s mentally ill and needs help

The parents of a Canadian man convicted of plotting ISIS attacks against busy New York City landmarks say their son was a mentally ill teenager and doesn’t deserve to spend the rest of his life in prison, however horrible his crimes.

Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy, 20, of Mississauga, Ont., pleaded guilty in October 2016 to conspiring with ISIS operatives in the failed plan to bomb Times Square and the city’s subway system.

At his sentencing hearing in federal court on April 9, U.S. prosecutors will argue for life in prison, but his parents are appealing for a lesser sentence and treatment for their son.

In an exclusive interview with CBC News and the Toronto Star, Khdiga Metwally and Osama El Bahnasawy say they realize the gravity of their son’s crimes.

But both say they firmly believe their son’s history of mental illness and drug addiction made him vulnerable to manipulation — first by ISIS recruiters, and then by the intelligence agents who were tracking him.

Viennese Teacher Who Warned About Sharia Resigns From the Union

As reported here previously, Susanne Wiesinger is a middle school teacher in Vienna who courageously decided to speak out in public about the encroaching Islamization of Viennese schools.

Now Ms. Wiesinger has paid the price for being a whistle-blower: she has been forced to resign her position in the teachers’ union.

Many thanks to Egri Nök for translating this article from Heute:

Teachers’ Representative Steps Down After Speaking About Islam

March 23, 2018

“Sharia has a higher priority for many of my pupils,” teacher representative Susanne Wiesinger criticized publicly. Much to the displeasure of the [teachers’] union — now she steps back.

A teacher in Vienna has come under attack, after she warned of the increasing influence of Islam in schools: “We have a class of 25, where you’d need to integrate 21 children into our society — not just with respect to language, but also culturally. This is not humanly possible,” lamented Susanne Wiesinger in an interview with the research platform “Addendum”: “What are we supposed to integrate them into? We [teachers] are the only members of the Austrian majority society that they know”.

Susanne Wiesinger has been teaching for 25 years in the district of Favoriten in Vienna, the last ten years at a new middle school. In the past, says the 53-year-old, it was possible to get through to her pupils with topics, but these days, the Muslim pupils especially are barely interested. Their [religious] belief is almost everything they are interested in. “Sharia certainly has a higher priority for many of my students,” said the pedagogue. “The most important thing for them is to be a good Muslim and a good Muslima.”

“Not healthy for a society”

This is manifested in the classroom, too: Making music and dancing together are rejected for religious reasons. More and more often, questions of belief are reason for conflicts among the kids. She witnessed similar developments with the parents. Often they aren’t interested in education, but solely in the Islamic faith. “It is what makes them worth more, in their eyes. What makes them stand out from us.”
