Gates of Vienna News Feed 8/4/2020

A massive explosion occurred today at the port in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon. The blast destroyed many buildings, including a hospital, and killed at least 73 people while injuring thousands more. The explosion is thought to have resulted from the storage of 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate in close proximity with some kind of fuel oil and fireworks. A spark from a welding torch — which was being used to weld a door shut to prevent theft — ignited the fireworks, which set off the fuel and ammonium nitrate. Videos of the detonation show a huge blast and a mushroom cloud over the port area.

In other news, 435 illegal migrants landed in Spain, and 34 of them who tested positive for COVID-19 escaped from quarantine.

There Will Be More Killings

The following article by Michael Copeland was originally published in May 2014 at LibertyGB.

There Will Be More Killings

by Michael Copeland

There will be more killings. It is an uncomfortable prospect, but it is there. We need to face it squarely and honestly. There is no mileage in shying away, cocooned in wishful thinking. When, in the 1930s, a politician sounded warnings about Mr. Hitler in Germany, nobody wanted to know. People were all too unwilling to contemplate yet further conflict so soon after the dreadful Great War. They were pre-occupied with raising their families in difficult circumstances, thinking about precious holidays, and trying to forget the ghastly experiences of twenty years earlier. Mr. Hitler was abroad: he did not concern them. The politician was left marginalized, a voice in the wilderness. He was Winston Churchill.

Soldier Lee Rigby was butchered in broad daylight in an Islamic jihad killing, the perpetrator explaining “The Koran forces us in Sura At Tawba…” Remember, the Koran is not arranged in date order. That “Sura”, or chapter, Chapter 9, being the latest, overrides and “abrogates” all the peaceful verses elsewhere. Verse 5 commands “Kill the unbelievers wherever you meet them.” The Woolwich killing was not “a betrayal of Islam”, as claimed in a monumental failure by David Cameron and Judge Sweeney. It was an obedient fulfillment of that command. “Muslims must kill non-believers wherever they are unless they convert to Islam,” said Ali Gomaa, Grand Mufti of Egypt, the highest Muslim religious authority in the world (Citizen Warrior, October 2010). He follows the same source text.

The Woolwich killer, Mujahid Abu Hamza, a convert to Islam, had studied his Koran: he listed on a piece of paper a selection of verses that authorised him, and handed it to an onlooker. Those commands are ongoing, “valid from eternity to eternity” (Sam Solomon, former professor of Sharia law), and “true … universal and trans-time” (North London Central Mosque). Because they are in the Koran they form part of Islamic law. One who denies any verse is to be killed (Manual of Islamic Law o8.7(7)). The killing can be carried out, vigilante style, by anyone without penalty “since it is killing someone who deserves to die” (Manual o8.4). “You people will never be safe,” said the killer, a warning repeated since by one of his fellows.

We can expect other Koran-fulfilling Muslims to be driving around with weapons in their cars. One such carload was discovered completely by chance when police stopped a car with Muslim Men in it one summer Saturday in 2012: the computer had alerted them it was uninsured. The car was impounded, but rather too casually left uninspected until the following Monday, when bombs, knives and guns were found in it.

The occupants had intended to jihad-bomb an English Defence League demonstration in Dewsbury, targeting Tommy Robinson, and using the weapons to attack those fleeing. The demonstration had ended early, so their purpose was unfulfilled. The car’s keeper had in fact remembered to insure the car: inadvertently he had mistyped the reference number in his application. Thus, quite by chance, a Boston Marathon-type jihad bombing was avoided, and, quite by another chance, the six jihad-bomb conspirators were discovered.

Let the Coronadissidents Come to Berlin

Last Saturday a huge crowd of demonstrators gathered in downtown Berlin to protest the government’s coronavirus restrictions. Police attempted to shut down the demonstration under the Infection Protection Act, but the crowd booed the police and resisted. The event was too large to be stopped forcibly.

The organizers said that a million people participated in the protest, while the mainstream media gave an estimate of 20,000. Even if the first number is an exaggeration, the second is obviously absurd, based on panoramic photos of the crowd.

The Marauding Taxi Driver in Borlänge — A Somali Pedophile?

I posted last week about a Somali taxi driver in the Swedish town of Borlänge who ran down a group of pedestrians. At the time there was no word on his motive, but there was naturally some speculation that the marauding taxi was an instance of Sudden Jihad.

Now there are some new and interesting developments in the case: it seems the driver’s intended victim was someone he knew and was related to, and who he believed had just reported him for child molestation.

A Kuffar-Pusher Strikes at the Station in Waghäusel

Waghäusel is a German city in the district of Karlsruhe in Baden-Württemberg. Last week a pair of culture-enrichers engaged in the time-honored Islamic practice of pushing the kuffar in front of a train at the station in Waghäusel.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Heidelberg24:

First announcement: Man is pushed onto the tracks — at the same time a train is approaching

A terrible incident occurred on Tuesday (July 28th) in Waghäusel (Karlsruhe district). As the police reported late in the evening, a man was pushed onto the track bed by a hitherto unknown perpetrator. At the same time, a train was approaching. The victim was caught by the train and seriously injured. The officers are now hurrying to find the attacker who fled the station.

Waghäusel: Unknown man pushes man into the track bed — train hits him

According to the Karlsruhe police, witnesses could see the two men getting into a fight at the train station in Waghäusel at around 6pm The perpetrator pushed his victim onto the track bed. The victim was still trying to save himself, but at that moment a train hit him. While paramedics/first responders rushed to the injured man, the perpetrator fled the scene.

With serious injuries, the man, whose identity is still unclear, was taken to a hospital by helicopter. The police were informed of the incident in Waghäusel and deployed immediately. The station and the railway line was temporarily blocked. The Criminal Forensics Team Karlsruhe then began securing evidence at the crime scene, as reported by MANNHEIM24*.

Waghäusel: Police are looking for “Track Pushers” — hope for eyewitness accounts

At the same time, the police launched a large-scale search with 20 patrol cars and two helicopters. The person they were looking for was about 1.85 meters (6 feet) tall and had short hair. He was wearing completely black clothes at the time of the crime, probably a jogging suit of the Nike brand. He also wore a green surgical mask and, according to witnesses, had an oriental appearance.

There is no further background on the crime. The Kripo Karlsruhe (Criminal Investigative Police) started an investigation into an attempted homicide. Witnesses who can provide information primarily about the perpetrator and his escape route should report to the long-term crime service on 0721 666-5555. pol / jol

Waghäusel: Man (54) pushed onto the track bed — police give frightening details

July 29 Update: After the terrible incident at the train station in Waghäusel, the victim’s identity has now been clarified. He is a 54-year-old German from Karlsruhe. According to the police, after being pushed onto the track bed by his attacker, the man was prevented from trying to get back on the platform. Despite emergency braking, he was hit by an approaching freight train and seriously injured. The 54-year-old is not in mortal danger, but he suffered a fracture of the thigh, various other broken bones and a deep flesh wound.

The Karlsruhe police are still looking for the unknown perpetrator and his companion. The companion is about the same age as the attacker and approximately 1.80 meters (5’11”) tall. Has also short hair and an oriental appearance. He was wearing a dark tracksuit and white shoes.

Dispatch From Pandemia

We’re entering the sixth month of the Coronamadness, with no end in sight. Or, more accurately, no end in sight before November 4, 2020. If Trump wins, the madness will ratchet up a notch or two. And if Biden wins, full socialism will be implemented beginning on January 21, 2021. Which will undoubtedly closely resemble the “new normal” we have become accustomed to since early March.

I’ve written a number of times in this space about the difference between my local Food Lion and supermarkets in Charlottesville and other metropolitan areas. Food Lion is at the low-class end of the grocery store spectrum, which means it predominates in small rural towns. The one I frequent had been a refuge from the insanity of stores in Charlottesville. It had an ostensible mask rule, but it was not enforced, and most of the time only about 50% of the people in the store — staff or customers — wore the Corona Hijab. The atmosphere was relaxed. No one screamed at anyone else for not wearing a mask. And the social distancing rules were largely ignored.

All that changed a few days ago. The two Food Lions nearest me have instituted “Entrance” and “Exit” doors, and a Coronavirus Compliance Officer is stationed at the entrance to make sure every customer wears a mask. If you don’t have one, a mask will thoughtfully be provided for you.

Food Lion is now indistinguishable from Whole Foods and Walmart and all the other major retailers in Woke cities like Charlottesville.

The only remaining places of refuge are the Amish markets. There are substantial Amish colonies in this part of Central Virginia, and once an Amish community reaches a certain size, its entrepreneurs open up a market to sell bulk foods, deli items, and other odds and ends. Evidently the Amish don’t believe in masks, because you never see any of the staff wearing them. Some of the customers do, while others like me brazenly enter the store with a naked visage.

It’s a good thing the Amish markets sell a lot of stuff I need, because I’m going to do as much of my shopping there as possible. There’s a big one on a remote back road not too far from me, and I expect I’ll be visiting it frequently. It usually has some really good bargains.

I’ll bet the Amish didn’t close their churches during the lockdown. And I doubt Governor Coonman would have had the nads to try and force them to.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

I haven’t yet experienced the new coronacompliant Food Lion firsthand. I learned about it this morning at (for want of a better word) “church”.

You’re probably wondering why I put the word “church” in quote marks. Let me explain…

Since Governor Ralph “Coonman” Northam relaxed his lockdown rules for churches, some congregations have been holding limited services, while others haven’t. I’ve heard that the Catholics are celebrating mass in some form, and there’s at least one Presbyterian church in the area that has opened. Baptists, being a fissiparous denomination, vary in their policies — some churches are open, others not. I saw a group of (masked) congregants outside a Baptist church near my house this morning. As I understand it, some congregations are holding outdoor, socially distanced services. Others are gathering in church parking lots and sitting in their cars to hear the word of the Lord.

The Methodists are still locked down, however. And so are the Episcopalians, of which I am one.

After the governor, in his infinite wisdom, issued a new ukase that softened his draconian lockdown order, our diocesan bishop meditated on the situation and came up with a set of “guidelines” — they are mandatory — for parishes that are considering reopening. Below are excerpts from the lengthy document sent out to vestries:

Jackboots at Dawn

The following article was posted last Thursday at Gateway Pundit:

Jackboots at Dawn: German Gestapo comes after “right-wing” journalists

by Jim Hoft

Gateway Pundit has written about the increasing political persecution in Europe. Now, German police have raided the home of an innocent “right-wing” blogger, while state media rely on violent Antifa supporters as “experts” on “right-wing radicalization”.

Conservative Journalist Hermann S. and his wife were arrested on Friday in the south German city of Landshut on suspicion of having sent “right-wing hate mails”, their house was searched, computers and electronic devices seized. Now they are being investigated for “illegally owning weapons” because Hermann, a career police officer of 29 years, owned two unregistered antique pistols inherited from his grandfather, a WW II era P38 and a 100-year-old Belgian revolver, along with a dummy “pump gun” style shotgun. They have since been released.

The charge: Hermann S. is accused of having sent 6 “hate mails” to leftist politicians signed “NSU 2.0”, a reference to the “National Socialist Underground”, a 10-year-old gang of skinhead East German hoodlums who randomly murdered 9 mostly Turkish migrants and killed themselves when the cops were closing in 2011. The doltish and ham-handed “NSU” is universally condemned by all conservative politicians in Germany, but still routinely cited by the Left as evidence of a “vast right-wing conspiracy” in German society.

Now, apparently, the moniker is being used to tar conservative bloggers like Hermann S., who had no idea about the e-mails written in his name. Speaking to Gateway Pundit Wednesday, he said, “Whoever wrote the mails signed them with my full name and address, as if that was a likely thing for underground terrorists to do.” When he asked the investigators about this glaring contradiction, the police told him maybe he accidentally signed the mails with his address. Hermann now faces a lengthy court case and may lose his police pension.

Even worse is the permanent tarring of his reputation, however. The obviously ridiculous charges were immediately leaked to mainstream media without any presumption of innocence or protection of his identity, listing his online moniker of “Eugen Prinz”, a reference to Prince Eugene of Savoy, who led the battle against the Ottoman Turks after the Siege of Vienna 1683.

Hermann S. is fairly sure he was set up by left-wing activists, who are coming after all conservative journalists and politicians world-wide now. He writes for leading German alternative news site “Politically Incorrect” (PI News), which was founded 2006 after the Mohammed caricatures controversy. PI News is staunchly pro-USA and pro-Israel, as its editorial guidelines state: “We support Israel and its citizens in what is their natural right: The right to live in freedom and peace.”
