A Malaysian supporter of the Islamic State named Muhamad Hafizi Mat Jusoh has been sentenced to a total of twenty years in prison for plotting terrorist attacks, including one on the Better Beer Festival of 2017. However, the convicted defendant will actually serve only nine years in prison, because the sentences will run concurrently.

Customers Rage as Starbucks Turns Into Homeless Shelter

Starbucks’ controversial decision to enable every Tom, Dick, and non-paying Harry to use their restrooms has sparked equal parts criticism and praise, mirroring the nation’s increasingly extreme partisan perspective on every— and any-thing…

“It sounds like Starbucks is turning their stores into homeless shelters. Their coffee is strong but their management is weak,” said Ron Raduechel, a 64-year-old retired supply chain executive from Waukesha, Wis., who said he would no longer go to Starbucks…

“I believe Starbucks is doing what’s right in their hearts whether its outcome sparks negativity or not,” said Johnny Varela, a 31-year-old carpenter in Orlando, Fla.

“I think Starbucks is very humanitarian.”

John Brennan’s Plot to Infiltrate the Trump Campaign Exposed

Authored by George Neumayr via The Spectator,

As Trump won primary after primary in 2016, a rattled John Brennan started claiming to colleagues at the CIA that Estonia’s intelligence agency had alerted him to an intercepted phone call suggesting Putin was pouring money into the Trump campaign.

The tip was bogus, but Brennan bit on it with opportunistic relish.

Malaysia: 20-Year-Old is Supporter Who Planned Attack on Better Beer Festival 2017 to Spend 9 Years in Jail

Muhamad Hafizi Mat Jusoh was sentenced to a total of 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to four terrorism related charges, including a planned attack on the Better Beer Festival 2017.

KUALA LUMPUR: A 20-year-old Islamic State (IS) supporter was sentenced to a total of 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to four terrorism related charges, including a planned attack on the Better Beer Festival 2017 which had been scheduled for October last year.

However, Muhamad Hafizi Mat Jusoh will spend only nine years in prison as High Court judge Datuk Mohd Sofian Abd Razak ordered the sentences to be served concurrently.

Before pronouncing the sentence, Sofian advised Hafizi to study while in prison and try to do something which would make the nation proud as he was still young.

In the first charge, Hafizi was alleged to have given training via a WhatsApp group, “The Rise of Jundullah”, between 9.07pm and 10.28pm on Sept 23 last year, on how to make an explosive device to a group of people who were ready to conducted a terror attack in Kota Baru.

He was charged under Section 130F(a) of the Penal Code which carries a maximum 30 years’ jail and fine upon conviction.

In the second charge, Hafizi was alleged to attended a training session at an empty plot of land in Gong Kulim, Pasir Puteh in Kelantan, between 3.30pm and 4pm on Oct 10 last year, as preparation for the terror attack on the festival.

The second charge was under Section 130FB(1)(a) of the Penal Code which carries a maximum jail term of 10 years or fine upon conviction.

In the third charge, the youngest of nine siblings was alleged to have owned 57 items linked to IS and two items linked to al-Qaeda in his mobile phone at Restoran K&K, Lot 2689, Jalan Tok Janggut, Kampung Kelubi in Pasir Puteh, Kelantan at 4.30pm, also on Oct 10 last year.

For this, he was charged under Section 130JB(1)(a) of the Penal Code which carries a jail term of up to seven years or fine upon conviction…

Maduro Wins Election and Venezuela’s Inflation Makes a New High: 20,186%

Authored by Steve H. Hanke of the Johns Hopkins University.

President Nicolas Maduro is here to stay — at least for a while. After winning a landslide ‘election,’ with over two-thirds of the vote, Maduro will remain in the saddle for another five years, in principle. But, as Venezuelans cast their ballots, Venezuela’s hyperinflation episode made new highs, with the annual inflation rate breaching 20,000% for the first time on election day. Currently (5/22/18) Venezuela’s annual inflation rate is at its highest ever: 20,186% (see chart below).

Germany: Asylum for Cash Scandal

Germany’s Federal Office for Refugees and Migration (BAMF) will review more than 25,000 asylum decisions after allegations of corruption at its regional office in the northern city of Bremen.

Some of those granted asylum were considered by German authorities to be potential security risks, according to the news magazine Der Spiegel. They include Syrian intelligence operatives, human smugglers and other hard-core criminals — as well as potential Islamic State jihadists.

BAMF currently rejects almost all asylum requests from converts from Islam to Christianity, according to Thomas Schirrmacher, president of the International Society for Human Rights. He said that when undergoing “belief tests,” BAMF often relies on Muslim translators who deliberately mistranslate at the expense of Christians or converts.

4 thoughts on “Gates of Vienna News Feed 5/22/2018

  1. The Russians are to blame for the fact that Chechens commit terrorist acts.
    https://rus.ozodlik.org/a/29244572.html
    “Russia labeled terrorists on the entire Chechen people”

    After the armed attack in Paris, there is growing tension in the Chechen community. Among them there is a version that Azimov was not a terrorist, and the cause of the incident was a household quarrel that turned into a tragedy.

    “Why, after he was hit with electric shock, he was shot? He could just be shot in the leg. What would he do with this knife? He that, like in the movies of ninjas that-whether: throw him into someone and kill him to death? He could just be shot, in the leg, in the hand, but at least in the shoulder, to neutralize this man. Why kill? ”

    The human rights activist believes that young people can be provoked with a video with scenes of cruelty towards Muslims.
    “They believe that they take retaliatory measures against cruelty.

  2. The biggest problem we have had, over the last two or three decades, is the need to awaken European native communities to the dangers that wait for them as a result of government policies in favour of diversity, multiculturalism and population replacement. With the efficiency of modern surveillance technology it has been almost impossible to organize physical resistance, a fact that keeps the political and globalist elite arrogant and indifferent. Even if they knew that every single child in the country was going to be raped, as long as they could control the narrative, it would have no impact on them. The feeble attempts by lone wolves to register some sort of opposition, like Darren Osborn, are born of desperation and only serve to make the elite more confident.
    But we do hold an ace, a weapon so terrible that, once unleashed, will change the course of history immediately. That weapon is our ability to offend Muslims and their ideology. Muslims can become raving maniacs, at the slightest provocation, as you saw with the Danish cartoons. Which is why European governments are so anxious to shut down free speech, before we activate this weapon.
    If you are really sincere about protecting your country, your traditions and your culture, you do not have to rush out and buy a gun or hire a rental van – just give some thought to the best possible way we can motivate Muslim hordes to take to the streets, hell bent on enriching the lives of our cities. They know what to do.

    • I arrive, if perhaps not by exactly the same means, to a similar scenario, as does Daniel Pipes apparently, who thinks: “The greatest question facing Europe is who, Establishment or populace, will steer the continent’s future. The extent of Islamist political violence will likely decide this.”
      http://www.danielpipes.org/17010/islamist-violence-steer-europe-destiny
      While some Islamists say the womb will conquer Europe, for a significant enough percentage of Muslims, that’s not how jihad works – further violence is all but guaranteed.

      Only ‘events’ I fear, will alter the demographic and ideological trajectories the UK, and other European countries are on.
      I suppose a type of civilisational forlorn-hope, in Britain anyway, given the abject appeasement on both sides of the Westminster benches.
      Whether that’s a betrayal over Brexit or an intifada in a major European country, who knows? so far, after the the likes of the British National Party (BNP) were gutted, the indigenous British frog is slowly cooking.
      Minority status is penciled in for 2066.

      What it will take for that frog to jump out, if at all, is anyone’s guess, besides it’s way past a question of race, and any grassroots movement that attempts to make it so, will almost certainly fail.
      Similarly so an anti-Islam party for slightly different reasons.
      For any chance of defeating Islamic jihad, firstly, there must be a proper Brexit from the EU, and only then, might the Brits challenge the progressive caste enabling and encouraging the whole process, of replacement migration and Islamisation.
