From Notre Dame to Notre Nakba

The two recent posts about Sweden and Britain share the same general theme: the imminence of a multicultural Götterdämmerung in both countries. There is a sense that the endgame is at hand for each country — either society will descend into violent civilizational conflict, or the indigenes will meekly submit to the invaders and be annexed to the Caliphate. Whatever the outcome, the current situation is inherently unstable and will not last much longer.

The video below is an indication that France is approaching a similar singularity. In it you’ll see Muslim migrants occupying the forecourt or square in front of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris Notre-Dame de l’Assumption in Clermont-Ferrand and changing the name on the sign to “Nakba Square” (the word nakba means “catastrophe”, and is used by Palestinians and their supporters to refer to the founding of the State of Israel).

The German state of Thuringia announced that it will grant residence permits to migrants who are victims of right-wing violence while they are in Germany. The migration authority decided that such a policy is necessary on “humanitarian grounds”.

In other German news, Muslim parents have complained to school authorities that their children should not have to take exams during Ramadan, due to the stress that fasting puts on them.

Sweden: The Death of a Nation

Our Swedish correspondent Svenne Tvaerskaegg sends this gloomy overview of the political situation in Sweden with a multicultural apocalypse rapidly approaching.

Sweden: The Death of a Nation

by Svenne Tvaerskaegg

Like a drunk the morning after a magnificent binge, Sweden is slowly waking up to the grim reality of the past few decades as a humanitarian superpower and the hangover is going to be of monstrous proportions.

The Swedes were a privileged people. Their hard-working Lutheran forefathers handed over to their keeping a wealthy, modern, homogeneous and well-functioning Scandinavian nation with one of the highest standards of living in the world. Their future was secured; they had all a people could wish for. And they completely squandered it.

The damage recent generations of Swedes have wreaked on their own country is almost beyond comprehension. Coming generations of Swedes will inherit a country in shambles and struggling with insurmountable problems. Ghettos, crime, segregation and ethnic strife are now the hallmarks of the once progressive nation. And perhaps the worst thing of all for the grandchildren of today’s Swedes: in the second half of this century they will in all likelihood be just one competing minority amongst many in what was once their own country. It will be a country no previous generations of Swedes would recognize — poor, shabby, Middle Eastern and African in appearance and dominated by Islam.

What went wrong for the Swedes was they became infected by what author Tom Wolfe called “radical chic”, revolutionary romanticism. The 1960s generation of spoiled middle-class rebels in their Che Guevara T-shirts completed their degrees in social sciences and feminist studies and went on to careers in politics, education and the civil service. Many of them went into media and journalism. Their solidarity with the oppressed of the third world knew no bounds, and from their positions of power and influence they could put their revolutionary romanticism into practice.

Sweden’s coffers were opened to third world revolutionary movements and their charismatic and radical young leader, Prime Minister Olof Palme, flirted with left-wing dictators and subversive groups across the globe. It was a heady time. By decree Sweden became multicultural, the borders were thrown open to mass immigration and the decay started. The fervor with which the revolutionary romantic elites pursued their goal was practically religious in character and tolerated no dissent. Politicians promised voters that mass immigration enriched Sweden; it brought economic and cultural wealth and made their country a much better place. State television and the press abandoned their critical role and trumpeted the same official message.

A few cautious dissenters raised warning voices but were soon shouted down. They were hung out in the media as “racists” and “xenophobes”. Ridiculed and vilified, they lost friends and jobs and were sometimes even hounded out of the country.

One early and high profile dissident was the university lecturer and Swedish member of parliament for the Liberal party Mauricio Rojas, himself an immigrant to Sweden from Chile. As the Liberal party spokesman on refugee and integration matters, he saw the damage uncontrolled third world immigration was doing to Sweden and warned the Swedes the path they were following would inevitably lead to disaster unless there was serious public discussion and radical reform. The retaliation was swift. Publicly branded a “xenophobe”, he was held up to public derision in the media. He received death threats from left-wing extremists and was put under 24 hour guard by Säpo, the Swedish security police. The campaign of character assassination continued unabated for months afterwards and demands were made for his removal from parliament. Unable to live in the country any longer Mauricio Rojas left Sweden forever and took up a position as a university lecturer in Spain.[1]

The End Times of Albion: Timeline — First Period, 1945-1983

The essay below by Seneca III is the latest in the “End Times of Albion” series.
Previously: Part 1, Part 2.

Timeline — First Period, 1945-1983

The End Times of Albion, Part 3

by Seneca III

This analysis began two months ago when the Telford story broke overnight on 10th/11th March. The original intention was to dig deep into the underbelly of that forty-year atrocity and extract from the quagmire of reportage and the local historical record some idea as to how the mass rape, sexual trafficking, torture and brutal abuse of hundreds, possibly thousands, of white girl children there could come about and be ignored or brushed under the political carpet by so many for so long.

What it has uncovered is a nationwide, indeed Europe-wide, state of affairs that is a complex, mind-numbing web of subtle treachery and political ambition dating back to the 1920’s. This web grew slowly in the shadows during the long period of its gestation and has evolved into a tapestry of confusion, collusion, concealment, obfuscation and Marxist-Socialist indoctrination from which mendacious Western establishments created the warp and weft of the Grand Conspiracy that has brought us to this defining place and time.

In conclusion, Telford was neither a singularity, an accident nor an aberration; it is the end result of a multinational, century-long operation formulated with the objective of changing the course of Anglo-European and global history, and which is now rapidly approaching its apogee.

Thus, the emergence into full public view of the Telford abomination should come as no surprise to an informed though now cowed and multiculturally brainwashed indigenous population at large. It is but another demonstration of our journey down the road to perdition exemplified by the application of well-oiled group-think indoctrination through the enforced silence of the native victim groups and their communities via draconian hate crime laws ordained at the highest levels of government.

It is axiomatic that few history-changing events ever happen in temporal isolation, nor rarely in a single geographic location; there is always a chain of subtle, interconnected and barely noticeable precursors, the first faint ripples in the fabric of the structural ethos of a race, culture, nation, tribe or alliance which tend to disappear below the perceptual horizon of the body politic as a whole as it goes about its busy existence. Then, slowly, these ripples become deep rents and increase in frequency and severity until they reach a point where even the most inattentive eye can see that they portend a collapse from within and/or destruction from without.

Such a time is now upon us, and events in the timeline below and those to follow illustrate the connections between consecutive and parallel stages of the process. The ‘Grand Scheme of Things’ is being implemented through the mass importation of violent third-world, low IQ, feral predators with the intention of hastening the end of Western intellectual, moral and cultural strengths through the internal repression of long-heritage citizens and their consequent regressive mongrelisation. The ultimate objective is the elimination of the Caucasian blood line.

On the 18th of April the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on British Muslims launched their “appeal for evidence” Monday, describing “Islamophobia” as a form of “group based hatred or hostility” comparable to racism.

Their letter does not acknowledge there might be rational reasons to have reservations about rising levels of radical Islam and the growing influence of Islam in the West generally.

The call for submissions also only mentions free speech concerns at the end, in passing, describing them as “questions possibly outside the scope of this report”.

They aim to develop a definition of Islamophobia that can be “widely accepted by Muslim communities, political parties, and the Government”, the document adds.

Baroness Warsi, the parliamentary group’s treasurer and one of its four elected officers, tweeted: “To effectively challenge #Islamophobia we must comprehensively define it.”

(Breitbart London, 24th April)

If you don’t live on this benighted Island, then try to understand this — wherever you are, you are next if you are not already enriched, for here over a million girl children have been drugged, raped, tortured and impregnated and still more are in the process (The Halifax sequel will break soon unless our beloved establishment, as is their wont, manage to bury it).

Caveats: Links, quotations and citations are kept to an absolute minimum for reasons of space and simplification of comprehension, but interested readers are encouraged to undertake their own, deeper research using dated elements in the timeline as a starting point. Apart from needing to keep this analysis as short as possible and within the scope of a blog, I have not included mention of two World Wars and most of the semi-major and minor conflicts that have taken place within the timeline. I have done this on the assumption that the majority not mentioned categorise either as direct consequences of the Globalisation Project rather than as
initiators, are either unconnected or of relatively minor importance.

The same thinking particularly applies to WW II and the period that saw the end of European and East Asian Colonial Empires and the rise of new ones. Both trends, especially the Partition of India in 1949, can be traced back with various degrees of certitude to WW II and the Cold War which followed and are deserving of a case study of their own for which I do not have the space or time here.

General Timeline of Deconstruction

1920’s to the present — The birth and evolution of the ‘Racism’, (embryonic) ‘Political Correctness’, ‘Diversity’, ‘Multiculturalism’ and ‘Affirmative Action’ behavioral imperatives and the first implementations of a strategy to infiltrate and suborn Western educational establishments — in essence, the battle for our minds and those of our children.

Also, contributions from the ‘Frankfurt School’, the ‘Cloward-Piven Strategy’ (1966), the ‘Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan’ (C-K was the author or the subject of 37 major publications spread over the period 1922-1972), Saul D. Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ (1971) and Common Purpose (1989).

Collectively the clever manipulation of the ‘Mea Culpa!’ Syndrome utilised as a Marxist-Socialist revolutionary tool.

First Critical Period — De-colonisation and the rise of globalism

1945 to 1947 — Post-War reorganization across Europe. Immigration to the UK from the nascent Commonwealth begins in earnest.

1947 — The Partition of India, which resulted in the creation of two independent dominions, India and Pakistan, and the subsequent emergence of modern Bangladesh as an independent nation in 1971 after breaking away and achieving independence from Pakistan in the Bangladesh Liberation War.

1947 — The All-Party Group for World Governance, previously the All-Party Group for World Government, was founded by a British Labour Party politician, Henry Charles Usborne (16 January 1909 — 16 March 1996). At its peak, it had over 200 members from the House of Commons and the House of Lords.


Henry Charles Usborne, Clement Edward Davies, Gilbert McAllister, Mary Tibaldi Chiesa

1947 onwards — The rate of ‘Commonwealth’ occupation of the UK from backward areas of Bangladesh and Pakistan such as Azad, Kashmir and Punjab increases. Today those areas are rich in new, grandiose villas with driveways full of expensive cars purchased with monies, predominantly benefit handouts, tribally repatriated from the UK. Meanwhile, their encampments in the occupied territories of the UK and Europe turn out a never-ending stream of parasites, common criminals, rapists, bombers, propagandists and general duty jihadis.

Chancellor Merkel’s Reign of Lawlessness

The AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) has initiated a lawsuit against the chancelloress because of her three-year (so far) mass importation of illegal migrants, which lacks any legitimacy under German law or the federal constitution.

One of the things I like about Germans is that they’re sticklers for the rules. If anything brings the Kanzlerin down, it will be her abject failure to obey the rules.

Honor Abortion Forced on Pakistani-Italian Girl From Verona

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from Il Giornale:

The girl was taken back to her country of origin through deception. To her friends, she wrote: “This time my father will kill me.”

Taken to Pakistan through deception by her father. Then tied up for 8 hours and forced to abort. A story that makes one shiver, and which saw the protagonist, a girl of Pakistani origin, residing in Verona. Now the 20-year-old has been freed by the police in Islamabad. She is safe and in the company of representatives of the Italian authorities. In February, Farah told her friends, “We’ll see each other in a week.” From then on, however, nobody had seen her.

The student, enrolled until last year at the professional institute Sanmicheli in the Veneto city (Verona), had become pregnant by a boy, himself also Pakistani, with whom she was having a relationship. A fact that infuriated the parents to the point of forcing her to terminate the pregnancy. “They punctured me and killed my baby. My father wanted me to get married here,” wrote Farah to her friends on WhatsApp. And then in an audio, she told: “They sedated me, tied me to a bed and forced an abortion”. The (Italian) foreign office intervened, asking the Italian embassy in the Pakistani capital to check up urgently on the news concerning the student.

Maltreatment in family

As reported by TGcom24, the girl has lived in Verona since 2008. Her father is owner of a business, and has been reported previously for family abuse; the girl even turned to social services in September for help. The situation was so serious that the municipality decided to put her up for a period of time in a protected shelter.

Sarah, after stating that she was reconciled with her family, returned home and was then forced to go to Pakistan. Here the nightmare began. And to tell it, the 20-year-old used WhatsApp messages to her friends. The young woman was locked in a room, tied up and sedated until the intervention by a (female) doctor, who induced abortion with a pill. Pushing the investigation was the young woman’s school network, from her friends up to the (school) director.

Farah is well-known and appreciated in her school circle. So much so that the professional institute San Michele she attended acted to arrange her exams in a manner that would have permitted her to face the months of pregnancy more serenely.

Her story is reminiscent of that of Sanaa, the Pakistani girl who lived in Brescia and was killed by her father, solely because she wanted to marry an Italian.

Wilders Did It Again!

A few days ago Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom (PVV) in the Netherlands, won his appeal for the replacement (“substitution”) of the judges in the hate speech case against him. Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends this analysis of Mr. Wilders’ historic victory, and provides the relevant Dutch political context for the decision.

Wilders did it again!

By H. Numan

The continued farce of the Wilder’s trial is going to get a brand new clown car. Wilders was able to substitute all his judges last Friday. That’s a pretty big turn of events. As you can expect in North Korea on the North Sea, this news is already fading away fast. The media report only extensively, not to say ad nauseam, if something bad can be reported about Wilders. When he scores, not so much. Geert Wilders is still on trial over that ‘fewer, fewer, fewer’ remark. He was convicted for that without penalty. Both he and the prosecutor appealed.

For new readers, a bit of history first.

Right after the municipal elections elections in 2014 Wilders asked his supporters if they wanted more or fewer Moroccans in the country. The crowd shouted ‘fewer, fewer, fewer!’ Okay, said Wilders. We’re going to arrange that. Progressive Netherlands was up in arms. They finally found the stick with which they could beat the blond horse to pulp!

A show trial that would make Stalin proud was set up. People could go to any police station and fill in pre-composed complaint forms. Set up like a multiple choice quiz. Just check off what you find the most offensive, and sign on the dotted line. Oh, you can’t read and write? No worries. Mark an offense, any offense, and put your thumbprint instead of a signature. Mosques supplied translators and assistance free of charge. Many thousands of progressive agitators and muslims used this brilliant free-of-charge opportunity to hang Wilders.

Another perversion of justice: during the trial the prosecutor quickly redefined the word ‘race’, so he could file racial discrimination charges. Under his new definition Moroccans are now a race. If that’s a bit puzzling, you Americans are now under Dutch law also a race. Why? Because group insult carries much less punishment. Again, Stalin would glow with pride.

On 9 December 2016 the kangaroo court grabbed the verdict out of their pouch: guilty without punishment. That was as far as the court dared to go. The prosecutor had asked for a penalty of €5000 for insulting Moroccans as a group. Both Wilders and the prosecutor appealed against the verdict. The prosecutor because he wanted more. A fine might have consequences for Wilder’s political career. No fine, and Wilders could go on as usual. Wilders appealed because he defends his own and our freedom.

That appeal took no less than two years. Last Friday the kangaroo court went into session and … all three kangaroos had to hop. The attorney for Wilders was Mr. Geert-Jan Knoops (Mr. is not “mister”, but stands for meester, the title of a person who holds a legal degree in The Netherlands and Belgium), who asked for substitution of the court, as the court was biased against the defendant.

What had happened in the interim? Minister for Foreign Affairs Halbe Zijlstra claimed he was present in a dacha with Putin in Moscow. This was a blatant lie, and proved as such just days later. Zijlstra had to resign immediately. He was the first piece of ballast to be dropped by premier Rutte in his third cabinet. I reported about his demise.

A few days later Alexander Pechtold, the leader of D66 and a mortal enemy of Wilders, said in public: “I have yet to meet the first Russian who admits his mistakes.’ Which is exactly the same as Wilders ‘fewer, fewer, fewer’ remark. Complaints were filed, and rejected. “This is completely normal in the debate” was the argument. The court saw no reason to put Pechtold next to Wilders in the dock.

That was the reason that Mr. Knoops asked for substitution, and this time his request was granted. His previous requests were denied. For example, he asked to call all the people who filed the above-mentioned complaints (many thousands) as witnesses. This was denied. A sample of witness chooses at random was also denied. Which makes it kind of hard to prove to the court that the accusations were rigged. Some of those complainants had no idea what they had signed. They were illiterate, and were told this was ‘good’ or ‘gave them special benefits’ by volunteers from mosques. One of the advantages of having a multicultural society, I guess. Illiteracy is back with a vengeance.

Unveiled Insult

Last month a “French” Muslima’s treatment by the police prompted the onset of riots, carbecues, and other traditional forms of Muslim civil disobedience. It seems that Nimouna Hambili ran afoul of France’s no-burka law, and reacted strongly against being detained by police for refusing to remove her niqab.

Ms. Hambili has just been convicted and sentenced to six months in prison, of which she will actually serve half. That’s a significant sentence — harsher than those imposed on immigrant child-rapists in Germany or Sweden.

Chechen Migrant in Vienna Murders 7-Year-Old Girl

Civilization Jihad in the USA: The Practicum

The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.

— The “Explanatory Memorandum” (1991) of the Muslim Brotherhood

Twenty-seven years ago this month, the Muslim Brotherhood (el-Ikhwan el-Muslimeen) in America published its notorious “Explanatory Memorandum” laying out its long-term plans for converting the United States to Islam and annexing our country to the global Ummah. The document was used in evidence at the Holy Land Foundation trial that convicted a number of Ikhwan operatives in 2008 and sent them to federal prison.

The video below contains the second American installment in a series of documentaries on the Muslim Brotherhood by Zvi Yehezkeli, an Israeli journalist and filmmaker who is fluent in Arabic. During his undercover operations, Mr. Yehezkeli posed as a Palestinian journalist, and was able to visit with Muslims and talk to them about their plans for the United States.

As you will see in the video, the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan has not been thwarted. It has not been stopped. It hasn’t even been slowed down. Muslims who intend to make America Islamic are patient. They are willing to do their sabotage over a period of decades and let the process unfold until the United States joins the global Caliphate in twenty or fifty or a hundred years.

Mr. Yehezkeli’s work is every bit as important as the Explanatory Memorandum, but it can’t have a similar effect unless our public officials are made aware of its significance. This will only happen if you, the American voter, buttonhole them and make them pay attention to it.

I recommend downloading the video file, and/or passing the URL around. Insist that your congressman look at it. He wants to get re-elected — if you make enough noise, he will have to listen.

This report is of enormous significance, but it will only have an effect if it PROPAGATES. That relies on you, the ordinary viewer. Please do your part and spread it!

The Crackdown on Identitäre Bewegung Österreich

As reported in the news feed last week, ten members plus seven other associates of the Austrian Identitaire movement (Identitäre Bewegung Österreich) have been charged with hate crimes. The article below from ORF Styria describes the legal action in more detail.

To a non-Austrian observer, the crackdown by the authorities may seem perplexing. A few months ago a new right-wing government took office in Austria — a coalition of the ÖVP (Österreichische Volkspartei, Austrian People’s Party) and the FPÖ (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party). The new government’s positions are very close to those of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán — that is, they oppose mass migration, object to the diktats of Brussels, and call for stronger border control. So why would they go after the Identitarians?

The government’s actions are largely based on the policies of the FPÖ and its leader Heinz-Christian Strache. However, the FPÖ is the junior partner in the coalition, while the ÖVP is the senior partner. All indications are that Chancellor Sebastian “Boy” Kurz is a cynical opportunist with no discernible principles — he saw which way the political winds were blowing in Austria and trimmed his sails accordingly. It seems likely that the crackdown on the Identitaires is simply a move to nobble a potential rival power center.

So what does Mr. Strache think of all of this? Throughout his career his ideological positions have been very similar to those of the Identitaires. If his opinions — unlike those of his boss — are held sincerely, the blatant crackdown on the Identitaires must surely not sit well with him.

Incitement: Ten Identitarians Accused

The State’s Attorney of Graz has charged ten leading members of the Identitarian Movement — also estimated by Security as right-extremist. They are accused of incitement and criminal association.

As early as April, there were house searches at the homes of Identitarian spokesman Martin Sellner and co-leader Patrick Lenart. Now the State’s Attorney of Graz has charged ten leading representatives of the Identitarian Movement Austria (IBÖ) as well as seven other sympathizers with incitement and criminal association and to an extent, criminal mischief and coercion.

According to the authorities, most of the accused had already participated in 2012 in founding the “Organization for Preservation and Furtherance of Cultural Identity.” Besides the registered members there are a number of actively supportive sympathizers.

The rightist-extreme group is financed to a great extent by member donations. “The members see European cultural identity threatened by multiculturalism, liberalism and Islamization. The IBÖ and its activists are striving for the strict separation of peoples living in Europe, and reject the cultural ‘mixing’ of ethnicities,” says the statement from state Security.

“Islam and Islamist Terror Made Equivalent”

Since the founding of the movement in Austria, its representatives have attempted “to spread their xenophobic ideology through provocative actions, comments on the internet, demonstrations, regular local meetings, posters, as well as the sale of propaganda material by way of an enterprise founded in 2016 solely for that purpose.”

In the process, the prosecution explained, the group also made use of the public’s steadily mounting fear of radical Islamist terror attacks, in oder to represent Islam and any Muslim or Muslim group as potential terrorists.

Since the beginning of 2016, the leading members of the group have succeeded with often spectacular actions to raise the group’s public profile.

A “flourishing enterprise” has been built with their mail-order sale of uniform-like vests, jackets, pants and buttons, posters and stickers with the group’s logos, as well as books and tapes.

According to the charges, the goal of redeeming society has produced for two of the accused not only a regular income, but also the financing of some of the actions that boost the revenue of their right-extremist undertaking.
