Did the Knife Jihadi do a Data Dump on the French Police?

The following video contains yet more bad news for the French government: Mikaël Harpon, the Islamic convert and perpetrator of the October 3 knife attack that killed four police officers at police headquarters in Paris, had a thumb drive containing data files of personal information on serving police officers. Now the police have to contend with the possibility that mujahideen throughout the country may decide to target specific police officers at their places of residence.

A representative of the French police union was interviewed by RTL for this report. Many thanks to Ava Lon for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Out of Gas

A few weeks ago I posted about an engaging Turkish-Dutch fellow named Deniz Üresin. The rascally Mr. Üresin is a wily entrepreneur who has been exploiting a loophole in Dutch law to create a thriving business selling laughing gas (nitrous oxide) on the streets of Amsterdam. Now Amsterdam Mayor Femke Halsema has banned the businessman from the city center.

In the following video Mr. Üresin bewails the official persecution directed at him, and also complains about being given a black eye while in police custody.

Extinction For Thee, But Not For Me

The article and videos below concern the current worldwide climate-change craze, with a special emphasis on Extinction Rebellion. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

The first video is about the recent climate demonstrations in Germany, and in particular Clara Mayer, the German version of Greta Thunberg:

The second video shows what the vandals from Extinction Rebellion do to ideologically offensive automobiles:

Here’s a related article about Extinction Rebellion from ScienceFiles (also translated by MissPiggy):

Paid Activists in Berlin: Extinction Rebels Rebel for Cash

by Michael Klein, ScienceFiles

“In Berlin, activists paralysed traffic around the Victory Column. The police spoke of about 1300 people on site. According to their own statements, they did not want to clear the area for the time being. The protest was peaceful. The head of the Chancellor’s Office, Helge Braun, criticized the blockade as “dangerous interference with road traffic”.

The blockade is taking place in Berlin. According to the Tagesschau News report, a small bunch of “1300 people” are blocking traffic around the Victory Column and make life difficult for Berliners, while activists are arrested in London.

In the last post we dealt with the question of who Extinction Rebellion actually are. Now we want to deal with the question: who finances the “1300 people” at the location? How is it possible for these people to sit on the street, not go to work, but instead make a living by getting on other people’s nerves because they’re out to save whatever they’re saving? They must receive financial support from somewhere.

In the case of Extinction Rebellion, the magic word is “Volunteer Living Expenses” (VLE): [image]

You can earn up to £400 or €450 by getting on other people’s nerves, causing them damage and staging yourself as a hero in order to fight for the climate. Extinction Rebellion, a financially well-oiled organisation whose links we have described in a previous post, pays up to €450 a week to the “volunteers” for whom climate protection is so important that they leave everything behind to take to the streets in Berlin.

You don’t have to be a clairvoyant to predict that these “activists” won’t leave anything behind that can be described in terms of regular work. These people probably all live on transferred existences, living on state subsidies or are financed by extinction rebellion.

The financing takes place in the context of a volunteer agreement, with which the “paid volunteer” on the one hand signs the creed of Extinction Rebellion and on the other hand declares his claim to VLE — Volunteer Living Expenses. (POSTED ABOVE) This means the majority of activists blocking the streets in Berlin are paid. These activists are of course not financed without reason. The more activists Extinction Rebellion can bring onto the streets, the better their demonstrations are visited, the more the donation box will ring. The more interesting the organisation becomes for all the donors wanting to assuage their guilty consciences, the richer the organisation becomes, despite having declared their goal to be the destruction of capitalism. We also mentioned this in our last post.

The activists for whom the climate is the only thing that matters are being financed, so that their only concern can be the climate. Paid hypocrisy is probably the most perverted variant of hypocrisy. When it comes to stooping to ever lower levels, the Left are incredibly imaginative.

We have packed the result of our joint research into a graphic. What you see here [image at the top of this post] is a network in which money is being moved. It’s a frightening network whose goal is to eliminate the society in which you and I presently live.

Antifa and the PKK

The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) is a Kurdish nationalist terrorist group whose members are also hardcore Communists. In the following video, the former CIA station chief Brad Johnson discusses the embedding of a large group of Antifa operatives with the PKK in Syria. The antifas went to Syria to gain combat experience, and the survivors are now presumably fanning out across the West to put their new-found skills to work for the sake of the cause.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for editing and uploading this video. Make sure you watch the second half, which is from footage that the PKK and Antifa produced jointly:

Besieged in Nørrebro

When Rasmus Paludan was staging a Koran-burning in a culturally enriched district of Copenhagen a few days ago, he was quickly surrounded by angry people who disagreed with him. His bodyguards regarded the threat against him to be so great that they evacuated him from the area. A brief account of what happened is here (in Danish).

Before we get to that story, let’s look at Part 4 of Vlad’s interview with Mr. Paludan at last month’s retreat in Quebec (previously: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3). In it the controversial Koran-burner describes the series of events that led up to incidents like the one in Nørrebro last weekend.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for editing and uploading these videos:

The district of Nørrebro is just west of central Copenhagen. It is primarily inhabited by an unholy mixture of leftist activists, anarchists, and Muslim immigrants. All three groups were well-represented in the attempted attack on Rasmus Paludan that led to his hasty evacuation.

Police in one of the vehicles were so desperate to escape the area that they plowed into some of the angry anti-Paludan demonstrators, running over one of their bicycles:

Truck Jihad in Limburg an der Lahn

On Monday evening a man driving a stolen truck went on a rampage in the German city of Limburg, running into a number of other vehicles and causing seventeen injuries. Since the alleged perpetrator’s name is Mohammed (giving the incident a Mohammed Coefficient of 100%), and he is alleged by one or more eyewitnesses to have mentioned “Allah”, we may safely label the accident as an instance of vehicular jihad.

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

Below is an article about the incident published yesterday in the Frankfurt Neue Presse, also translated by MissPiggy:

Accident in Limburg City Centre

by Stefan Dickmann, Frankfurter Neue Presse (FNP)
October 7th 2019

Limburg: The original driver recounts the accident with his truck

The driver stands stunned in front of the accident site after being pulled out of his vehicle by a stranger.

The accident in downtown Limburg that occurred Monday evening at 5:20 P.M. caused 17 injuries, including one seriously injured, and nine severely damaged cars. Six people involved in the accident had to be admitted to hospital, eleven were just slightly injured and were allowed to go home.

The accident was caused by a man driving a white truck. Up until the editorial deadline, the police still had not disclosed his identity. Several witnesses told the Frankfurt Neue Presse that the driver accelerated strongly, driving into several cars, pushing them along in front of him and stopping a few yards before a traffic light.

However, the man who caused the accident is not the original driver of the truck. “A man dragged me out of my truck,” says the legitimate driver in an interview with the Frankfurt Neue Presse. On Monday evening he stood bewildered in front of the accident site, directly in front of the regional court in Limburg.

Hurry! Make Me a Swedish Citizen So I Can’t Be Deported!

I reported a couple of days ago about a “Swedish” politician named Rashad Alasaad who was exposed as a people-smuggler. Mr. Alasaad allegedly ran a lucrative business arranging for the illegal migration of “refugees” from Greece to Sweden.

The article below from Samhällsnytt is a follow-up report on the Alasaad case. Many thanks to Kronans Martell for the translation:

Court orders Migration Board to make up their mind regarding the human trafficker’s application for Swedish citizenship, “as soon as possible”

Samhällsnytt continues to follow the leads on the Social Democrat politician, also known as the human trafficker, Rashad Alasaad. Today (Oct 4, 2019) the Immigration Court has ordered the Immigration Board in Malmö to make a decision concerning his application to become a Swedish citizen, and as soon as possible. “ I want them to make a positive decision.”

Yesterday Samhällsnytt disclosed new materials about the Social Democrat human trafficker of Ljungby, Rashad Alasaad. Among other things, we exposed that Alasaad has owned several properties in Sweden since 2018. The values of those properties don’t match his declared income. After a journalistic investigation by the news outlet Expressen, led by Kassem Hamade, which exposed Alasaad, the border police have started an investigation based on suspicion of human trafficking.

In addition, we were also able to disclose new information showing that Alasaad is a Syrian citizen who has been granted a Swedish residence permit. This situation lays the ground for the prosecutor to demand deportation if the police decided to press charges.

We can provide more information today. A very short time before Expressen made their investigation available to the public, Rashad Alasaad contacted the Migration Board on Wednesday demanding that they hurry up and make a decision regarding his application to become a Swedish citizen.

Alasaad was probably aware of the ongoing investigation by Expressen by the time (September 25th) he submitted his request to the Migration Board. He realized what consequences would be of such an investigation if it were to become public, especially consequences affecting his application for Swedish citizenship. If his request were to be approved, he would be certain that he wouldn’t be deported.

Dust Off Those Rusty Keys Just One More Time

Today is the fifteenth anniversary of the founding of Gates of Vienna. It should be an auspicious occasion, but the fact that Dymphna can’t help me commemorate it has kind of taken the starch out of me. I just don’t have that much to say.

So we’ll have some music instead. Thinking about this anniversary made the song “Stella Blue” by the Grateful Dead came into my mind. It was a staple of their live shows for more than twenty years, from 1973 until whatever the last one was before Jerry Garcia died. The studio version was first released in the summer of 1973 on the album Wake of the Flood, but I first heard it at a live show in Philly in March of 1973.

This version is from 1977 at Winterland. It doesn’t include any video footage, but I chose it for Garcia’s fine guitar solos, even if he does blow the words in a couple of places:

The lyrics are below the jump (the official version from Robert Hunter’s collection A Box of Rain):

The Truth Is No Defense

Regular readers are well-acquainted with Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, who was convicted of defaming Islam in an Austrian court almost a decade ago. For those who joined us more recently, see Elisabeth’s Voice for all the reports on Elisabeth’s case, from her trial in Austria all the way up to upholding of the verdict against her by the European Court of Human Rights.

Elisabeth has now written a book about her experiences. It is entitled The Truth Is No Defense, and will be published next month by the New English Review Press. In her book Elisabeth discusses not only her legal case, but her life experiences that led to her understanding of the fundamental nature of Islam, from Iran in the late 1970s to Libya in the early years of the new millennium.

In the following video, Elisabeth is interviewed on the talk show “America Can We Talk?” by Debbie Georgatos:
