Name the Problem!

Last week I reported on the Italian television presenter Giuseppe Cruciani, who lambasted the Left on his program for its refusal to identify Islam as the ideology behind incidents of “honor violence” such as the murder of Saman Abbas.

Guido Reil is a member of the European Parliament for the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany). In the following video clip from the floor of the EP, Mr. Reil emphasizes the importance of naming the source of slavery and violence in Bangladesh.

And what do you think that source might be? Any ideas?

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

Video transcript:

00:00   Mr. President, dear colleagues,
00:03   child Labour and women that work under conditions of slavery
00:07   in Bangladesh are unfortunately the norm. And what are we doing? We hold Sunday sermons
00:12   and we force our companies to control their subcontractors and their subcontractors
00:17   and their subcontractors in Bangladesh. That will never work.
00:20   We have to name the root of the problem.
00:23   And the root cause of the problem is: officially Bangladesh is a democracy with religious freedom,
00:29   but both aren’t true. Bangladesh is ruled by an autocratic regime
00:33   that tyrannizes the population with the help of Islamists .
00:38   nowhere more than in Bangladesh you’ll find child marriages,
00:41   violence at home against women is normal,
00:44   Christians and Hindus are murdered, their homes and places of worship are burned down by Islamists.
00:49   Trade unionists, opposition politicians and journalists are being openly murdered on the street —
00:54   by Islamists. We need to FINALLY name the root of this problem.
00:59   And the root cause is the inhumane ideology of Islam
01:03   Exactly this ideology that is constantly played down here and what’s more, supported and courted.
01:07   And that has to end; we have to name the real problems. Thank you.

    The problem is white supremacy and if you say otherwise you are a NAZI!!!!

    I am reminded of a book by David Weber in the STARFIRE universe. To paraphrase it:
    Our politicians wouldnt acknowledge the truth even if the real perpetrators would stand before them and stab them repeatedly where it hurts.

    • Yup, you’re right there.
      I had been called some years back an Islamophobe in a discusion about Islam with a young “progressive” woman.
      So I asked her if she had ever read the Quran, or the Hadith or any other Islamic Scripture.
      Her answer was NO.
      My reply: I rest my case
