The Apostasy of Hatun Tash

Last Saturday a young woman named Hatun Tash was attacked with a knife and slashed in the face by an as yet unidentified assailant at Speakers’ Corner in London. Ms. Tash is a former Muslim and convert to Christianity who regularly preaches the gospel to Muslims in Hyde Park. She was wearing a Charlie Hebdo t-shirt at the time of the attack.

As of this writing, her attacker has not been named, so there is as yet no Mohammed Coefficient for the incident, nor can we be certain that the assailant was a Muslim.

However, the knifeman was clearly attempting to cut her in the neck, and one may assume that he intended to slit her throat in the same manner as a beast is slaughtered at the festival of Eid Al-Adha. That act would have been followed by full beheading, if he were allowed to complete the task, because such is the punishment for kufr, or unbelief.

See this Breitbart article for a general account of what happened at Speakers’ Corner.

In the following video, David Wood of Acts 17 Apologetics shows several clips with footage of the attack on Ms. Tash, and then explains its scriptural justification as found in the Koran, the Hadith, and the Sira:

Hatun Tash actually committed at least two “crimes” that carry the death penalty under Islamic law: apostasy and insulting the prophet.

The book ’Umdat al-salik wa ’uddat al-nasik, or The reliance of the traveller and tools of the worshipper is commonly referred to as Reliance of the Traveller when cited in English. This is an authoritative source on Sunni Islamic law, because it is certified as such by Al-Azhar University in Cairo. There is no higher authority on Sunni Islamic doctrine than Al-Azhar; it is the closest equivalent to the Vatican that can be found in Islam.

From Book O, “Justice”, we learn that:

Leaving Islam is the ugliest form of unbelief and the worst. [o8.0]

Whoever voluntarily leaves Islam is killed.

[…]

When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed. [o8.1]

The second capital count against Hatun Tash was defamation against Islam, also know as Islamic slander, or ghiba. It is considered an act of apostasy.

Consulting Book O, “Justice”, in Reliance of the Traveller, we learn that the following acts constitute leaving Islam (§o8.7):

Homo-Hate in Non-Homogeneous Rotterdam

The article below is an appropriate follow-up to yesterday’s report on homo-hate in Amsterdam. A report from Rotterdam has reached similar conclusions about the culture-enriching aspect of homo-hate in that city, and also identified Moroccans as the group which expresses most of the Jew-hatred in Rotterdam.

“Homo- and Jew-hatred often come from non-Western quarters”

July 23, 2021

Rotterdam and region, IJsselmonde News

Concerning anti-Semitism and discrimination against the LHBTIQ+ community, attackers often have a non-Western background. That is what the victims say in several investigations, writes the Leefbaar Party counselor Tanya Hoogwerf, who takes these reports seriously and still wants an accelerated investigation supported by Rotterdam.

Her first attempt was voted down on July 8 of this month. “The community council thus continues to look away from reality. To stop anti-Semitism and homophobia, a harder approach is required, and there must be a serious investigation into the opinions and backgrounds of the perpetrators of anti-Semitism and homo-discrimination,” Hoogwerf emphasizes.

“The research shows that many Jewish residents of Rotterdam don’t dare to wear a kippah and that they have little trust in the community approach to anti-Semitism.

“The investigations with conclusions about the perpetrators of homo-hate and Jew-hate are piling up,” reports Hoogwerf in the name of the Leefbaar faction of Rotterdam. “Recently the report ‘Action Investigation Anti-Discrimination LHBTIQ+’ appeared in Amsterdam, in which the investigators reported that they encountered similar characteristics in regards to the perpetrators. The report states,

‘Through the respondents of the investigation, the perpetrators often were described as Amsterdammers with a non-Dutch background.’”

Will you stop looking away?

In addition, this year the report “Openly Jewish, but not always” appeared in Rotterdam. This investigation among Jewish Rotterdammers shows that the majority have the idea that the anti-Semitism that they and others experience comes mainly from Muslims. “Some respondents specifically name young Moroccan men as the group that most often expresses anti-Semitism in public.”

“The European Union has also conducted investigations into the backgrounds of the perpetrators of anti-Semitism. In 2018, a large European investigation into anti-Semitism reported: Almost one-third (30%) reported that the perpetrator was someone with an (apparent) Islamist-extremist belief. In 20% of the incidents, the perpetrator, according to the victim, was someone with a leftist political view. In 13% of the incidents, someone with a rightist political view, and in 5% of the incidents, someone with an extremist Christian view.”

The letter to the Rotterdam city leadership ends with the question from Counselor Hoogwerf: “Do you have a plan to stop looking away and engaging in the politics of symbolism, and will you finally get to work with a hard approach to homo-discrimination and anti-Semitism? And specifically concentrate on those who cause this terror?”

Homo-Hate in Non-Homogeneous Amsterdam

For many years it has been well-known that the bulk of hateful speech and behavior towards homosexuals in Western Europe comes from culture-enrichers. When homosexual couples get beat up on the street, the perpetrators are almost always immigrants, typically Muslim ones. Yet this is something the migrant-lovers of the left-wing parties have always denied. Their story has been that intolerant right-wingers are responsible for all the homo-hate.

All that has now changed, at least in Amsterdam. A new official report has forced the lefties to acknowledge that most violence against gays is committed by culture-enrichers. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from De Dagelijkse Standaard:

Green-Left alderman Groot Wassink orders an investigation into homo-hate: “The Amsterdam homo-hater is often an immigrant”

by Bart Reijmerink
July 20, 2021

Victims of homo-discrimination in Amsterdam state that the perpetrators often have a non-Dutch background. Those are the findings contained in the report, “Action Investigation Anti-Discrimination LHBTIQ+”, which was created by the Green-Left alderman Groot Wassink. Of all people, a Green-Left member now has to reluctantly recognize that homo-hate in Amsterdam often comes from a “non-Dutch background” zone.

The party that always would rather sweep the defective and problematic integration of certain population groups under the rug now has to recognize that most homo-hate in Amsterdam comes from immigrants. A striking fact: The publication date of this report is February 1, according to De Telegraaf, but the report is only now being made public. Perhaps the Green-Left had to process the result of the investigation.

The Amsterdam JA21 party member Annabel Nanninga could only sneer at Green-Left and other parties who have ignored this problem for years: “From this report, it emerges crystal-clear what Green-Left and the other council parties have stubbornly looked away from for decades: Homo-hate commonly comes from Moroccan boys.”

Amsterdam has finally become a victim of its own political correctness; an overwhelming majority of the Amsterdam city council for years was completely left and ruled the city for decades. Meanwhile, the violence against the LGBTI community only grew, and for years you could not state the facts without being made out to be a racist. But with the findings of this report, even the Green-Left has to recognize that the violence in large part comes from certain groups.

The translator notes that there is also a similar report out of Rotterdam.

Danish Days

Steen has posted an excellent selection of photos of Fjordman taken during the latter’s exile in Denmark.

Now that Fjordman has given permission for photos of him to be published, I dug through my image archives to see what I could find. I have a fair number of photos taken between 2007 and 2013, the last time I was in Europe. It fills me with a kind of nostalgic melancholy to look at them, since I know I’ll never see Denmark again, given that that I won’t be getting the “vaccination”. Even if I could somehow hop a catamaran to cross the Atlantic like Greta Thunberg, the Danish immigration authorities would still want to see my vaccine passport before they’d let me in.

A lot of the photos in my archive can’t be posted, because they contain other people who have yet to go public, and I don’t feel like trying to pixelate all of them out. However, I picked out a small selection to post here.

Steen took this photo of Fjordman and me in Copenhagen after one of our Counterjihad meetings in 2009:

Not all the photos are from Denmark. This one of Fjordman with Tommy Robinson was taken at an event in London in 2011:


Fjordman and Tommy Robinson, 2011

You can see Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff in the left background.

As he mentioned in his post on Thursday, Fjordman spent some time in the USA in the spring of 2012 during the trial of Anders Behring Breivik. While he was here, he went to several wine tastings:

In the process of digging through various folders, I came across a couple of screen shots of the letter that Anders Behring Breivik wrote and sent to major media outlets in the fall of 2013:

The Mullahs’ Mosque in Hamburg

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Die Welt:

Iran mosque in Hamburg is supposed to implement “Islamic revolution”

For years, the Islamic Center Hamburg (IZH) has staged itself as a non-political meeting place. New findings from the Office for the Protection of the Constitution show how tight the lines are to Iran’s regime — and to a terrorist organization.

At the Hamburg State Office for the Protection of the Constitution (LfV), there are new findings about the close links between the Islamic Center Hamburg (IZH) and the Iranian regime.

Current Iranian documents serve as evidence that the IZH is an “outpost of Tehran bound by instructions,” the LfV states in a multi-page report that Die Welt has evaluated. The aim is to “export” the Islamic revolution worldwide.

This is particularly relevant as IZH representatives have been denying allegations of political influence from Iran for years. In addition, the controversial mosque community still receives political backing from Hamburg’s red-green Senate. The new findings also concern connections between the IZH and the terrorist organization Hezbollah.

The director of IZH, Imam Mohammad Hadi Moffateh, affirmed months ago in an interview with Die Welt: “Neither before nor after the revolution did the Islamic Center Hamburg have any connections with the Iranian state.” At the same time, Moffateh confirmed that he was in personal contact with state leader Khamenei.

The LfV emphasizes that new documents even show that the IZH head is bound by instructions to the regime. In several letters addressed directly to Moffateh, he was described as an “honored representative of the Supreme Leader, Head of the Islamic Center Hamburg”. The IZH is the sponsoring association of the Blue Mosque on the Outer Alster.

“This is a quasi official confirmation that Mofatteh is to be regarded as the official deputy of Khomeini’s successor Ayatollah Khamenei”, confirms the LfV. Moffateh had received another letter from a well-known Holocaust denier.

“ACCORDING TO THE INTELLIGENCE OF THE OFFICE FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE CONSTITUTION, THE IZH CONTINUES TO STAND FOR AN ISLAMIST REGIME THAT IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH THE VALUES OF THE BASIC LAW.”

— STATE OFFICE FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE CONSTITUTION HAMBURG

The protection of the constitution accuses the IZH as a whole of unbelievable self-portrayal as an independent institution. “The newly acquired knowledge confirms that the IZH is one of the most important institutions of the Iranian regime in Europe”, LfV spokesman Marco Haase clarifies in an interview with Die Welt.

Boys Just Wanna Have Fun

Two mischievous young high-spirited “Swedes” have been convicted of gang-raping a 14-year-old mentally retarded girl. The Luleå District Court threw the book at them: five years in prison, followed by deportation. As for the deportation part, I’ll believe it when I see it. They were already supposed to have been deported prior to the crime, and refugees-welcome volunteer lawyers pull out all the stops to make sure that nobody, no matter how vile, can ever be deported from Sweden. So we’ll see.

There are a couple of things to note about this case. First, based on their current ages, they were 17 when they first applied for asylum in Sweden back in 2015. That was the year when many thousands of grizzled gap-toothed 17-year-old male culture-enrichers threw away their ID and entered Europe seeking asylum. They knew the rules were different for “unaccompanied minors” — with more generous social benefits and a better chance of being granted asylum — so they jumped into the wayback machine, became 17 years old again, and took up residence in Germany, Austria, and Sweden. If you could count the tree rings on these guys, they’d probably turn out to be a bit older than the 22 or 23 they claim to be now.

Secondly, the crime they were convicted of — manipulating and then gang-raping an underage mentally retarded girl — is a common motif among asylum seekers in Europe. It’s a species of crime that seems to be quite popular with culture-enrichers, while being almost unheard of among native Europeans.

The incident has a very unusual Mohammed Coefficient of 150%.

Deportation-ordered gang-raped handicapped girl in woods: “F*** you very nice”

[Photo caption: Janmohammed Mohamadi and Mohammad Musaruf. Photo: Police]

Two asylum-seekers from Afghanistan and Bangladesh respectively, who came to Sweden in connection with the migrant chaos and were earlier ordered deported, were convicted Thursday for aggravated rape of a child. This after they tricked a 14-year-old functionally handicapped girl into the woods in Norrbotten and there raped her vaginally, anally, and orally. The men, who had been spared deportation through the school amnesty, are now being punished with prison and deportation, but will be allowed to return to Sweden again.

On April 28 of this year 22-year-old Janmohammed Mohamadi, Afghan citizen, and 23-year-old Mohammad Musaruf, citizen of Bangladesh, picked up a 14-year-old girl in a car from her school. Mohammad, who was superficially familiar with the girl, had enticed her to go for a ride.

The girl, who, according to legal documents, has a disability, was surprised that Mohammad had another friend with him in the car and also began to feel worried when she saw that they were going far away from her hometown of Klöverträsk, 40 kilometers outside of Luleå. The men eventually stopped at a hidden turnoff.

[Inset: After marking by a dog with competence for detecting sperm, an area was observed where the mark gave off a blue forensic light source in combination with yellow observation filter. A soil sample was secured in the area marked by the dog.]

Took turns raping

At the location, Janmohammed and Mohammad took turns climbing into the back seat and forcing the girl to perform oral sex. But though the girl asked the men to stop, the rape continued-they also penetrated the girl both vaginally and anally.

After the incident, they drove back with the car and the girl was released. When she came home, the girl’s guardian noticed that she was distant and also began to cry. Later the same day, the girl was taken to the hospital for an examination.

Ordered deported — but allowed to stay after school amnesty

Samnytt has received information from the Migration Agency in which it appears that both Janmohammed and Mohammad had initially received a deportation decision from the Migration Agency since they lacked grounds for asylum.

Defendants

Mohammad Musaruf (19980818-)

  • Interpretation need — Bengali or Hindi, citizen of Bangladesh.
  • Represented by attorney Marcus Strom
  • Warrant issued April 28, 2021, Arrested May 6, 2021, Ordered held in custody, May 7, 2021

Janmohammed Mohamadi (19991013-)

  • Interpretation need — Dari, citizen of Afghanistan
  • Represented by attorney Marko Tuhkanen
  • Warrant issued April 30, 2021, arrested April 30, 2021, Ordered held in custody May 3, 2021

Janmohammed first applied for asylum in Sweden on 7 November 2015. The Migration Agency rejected his application on 13 October 2017, and at the same time, decided to deport him to Afghanistan. The decision became final on 28 May 2018, but thereafter, Janmohammed applied for a residence and work permit to study at a secondary level.

The Cultural Enrichment of German Cities and Towns

Miguel Klauß represents the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) in the regional parliament for Baden-Württemberg. The following op-ed from PolitikStube was translated by Hellequin GB:

Miguel Klauß: Germans are being driven out of their own cities!

What was reported from Stuttgart last week can be taken as a blueprint for the whole of Germany: More and more, a neglected, migrant milieu of oriental, Arab and African-born, predominantly male youths are taking over the public space, creating an “unstable security situation” and making life hell for the remaining locals and ancestral natives — until the latter give up and move away.

For anyone who walks through Germany’s inner cities with open eyes — especially in the west, where the “Verbuntung” [colourfulness] and “diversity” are already well-advanced (and if they have been emptied due to Corona, then at the hookah bars, junk shops, Turkish supermarkets, kebab shops and falafel stalls and betting shops the traffic will be uninterrupted) — it will not be possible to overlook the “change” that Greens such as Katrin Göring-Eckardt were looking forward to years ago.

In Stuttgart this week the local press reported on increasing rabble and brawl on the Kleiner Schlossplatz. Last year, at the “kick-off event” of this new Swabian city tradition, including brutal attacks on police officers and looting by the “event and party scene”, most of the people of Stuttgart hopefully assumed it was an isolated case. But the problem has persisted. No wonder that countless Stuttgart residents agree with the business owners and landlords in complaining about their suffering — and calling on politicians to finally do something.

Of course, all of this has long ceased to be a Stuttgart problem — and is certainly not a temporary condition that could be remedied, in the way you could get rid of rioting punks, beggars and homeless people through regulatory measures in city centers thirty years ago. No, it is only the beginning of an inevitable demographic development that diffuses from the big cities into the medium-sized cities and from there into smaller and smaller units, until at some point the countryside is the last to be affected. We are experiencing creeping land-grabs by problem migrants with zero willingness to integrate — especially since there will soon be nothing more to integrate into, or the question will be who should adapt to whom.

In Berlin, Cologne, the Ruhrpott and Frankfurt-Krankfurt, too, the orientalization of inner cities is accompanied by increasing crime rates, loss of homeland, changes in the cityscape and the increased emergence of no-go areas. German is no longer spoken here, customs and traditions from the 1001 Nights apply and conflicts are resolved according to old customary applications of the law. No wonder that fewer and fewer Germans still dare to go out into the streets in their hometowns. #ZeitfürdieAfD Germany. But normal.

July 22, Ten Years On

Ten years ago today Anders Behring Breivik murdered 77 people in Oslo and on the island of Utøya. Of all the Counterjihad activists who were impacted by the political blowback from the attacks, none was more affected than Fjordman. Below are his remarks on the occasion of the anniversary.

July 22, Ten Years On

by Fjordman

Sometimes life can be very strange. When I was eating lunch in my small basement flat in Oslo on July 22, 2011, I did not anticipate that in a few hours my country would be rocked by a brutal mass murder. And I certainly did not expect that these events would also turn every aspect of my own life upside down.

Suddenly and without warning, I was thrown into the epicenter of an international media storm. Less than two weeks later, I had evacuated my home and fled from Norway out of serious concerns for my safety. At this point, I was publicly accused of being a possible accomplice to mass murder, and the suggested brains behind an international terrorist network. If my life in the summer of 2011 had been the script for a film, it would have been rejected as being too improbable to happen in real life. Yet all of this did happen to me, plus a lot more. All because of the actions of a man I have never once met in my entire life, not even for a cup of coffee.

Ten years later, things have calmed down somewhat. I have managed to reestablish a reasonably stable personal life. However, this is a new life in a new country.

I quietly moved back to Norway in 2017, to see whether it was possible for me to have a normal life there again. The answer was no. Three and a half years of applying for jobs turned out to be futile. I got no job whatsoever, not even as an unskilled laborer in factories, butcheries or the fishing industry. I applied for such jobs, too, not just for work in offices or shops.

In early 2021, I therefore decided to leave Norway again, for the second time in less than ten years. It is unlikely that I will return in the foreseeable future for anything other than short visits.

A decade of smears following the July 22 attacks by Anders Behring Breivik has left its mark. Norwegian media still publish new articles suggesting that I inspired mass murder. New comments are still being published on social media claiming that I have the blood of children on my hands. Not every month, fortunately, but from time to time.

Being quoted in Breivik’s confused compendium/manifesto is by far the greatest curse of my life. Nothing else even comes close. But perhaps it is possible to be cursed and blessed at the same time. I was also blessed with being surrounded by kind people. Both old friends and new friends alike.

I was homeless for some time. Friends in Denmark referred to me, only half-jokingly, as a political refugee from Norway. My first temporary home was with my friend Steen Raaschou in Copenhagen. He was exceptionally patient, and allowed me to occupy his sofa for months at a time. I also stayed for a while with professor emeritus Bent Jensen and his lovely Russian wife Tatjana. In the spring of 2012 I spent several months in the USA, and never lacked a bed to sleep in. My friend Ned May from Gates of Vienna helped me with this arrangement*. Not all of those who helped me probably want to be named. But they know who they are, and they have my gratitude.

In 2011, I had a part-time job in Oslo, working with young people suffering from autism. After the massive and extremely negative media focus on me in July and August of 2011, it was impossible for me to keep doing this job. Frankly, it was probably dangerous for me to even stay in my old flat. So I suddenly no longer had a job or steady income at the same time as I had to spend money on lawyers.

A Summer of Madness

Ten years ago I walked this street; my dreams were riding tall.
Tonight I would be thankful, Lord, for any dreams at all.

— Robert Hunter, from “Mission in the Rain”

Tomorrow is the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attack in Norway. On July 22, 2011, a man named Anders Behring Breivik detonated a truck bomb in central Oslo next to government headquarters, killing eight people. While police and emergency services were dealing with the aftermath, Mr. Breivik drove to the island of Utøya, where a summer camp for Socialist Youth was being held. There he methodically shot and killed sixty-nine teenagers with a high-powered rifle. When police finally arrived at the island, he calmly surrendered.

Anders Behring Breivik was a neo-Nazi, but that fact did not emerge until several years later, when he wrote a letter to multiple media outlets and admitted that his declared affiliation with the Counterjihad movement had been a strategic misdirection, to spare his Aryan nationalist comrades from persecution. That part of his letter to the media was widely ignored, and was never publicly reported by any major outlet. To this day he is widely identified as an anti-Islam ideologue.

Before he committed his atrocities, Mr. Breivik had arranged the media distribution of his manifesto, or as he preferred to call it, “the compendium”. It was a lengthy, rambling treatise. It contained some of his own writing, but most of it consisted of extensive quotes from various English-language writers, the most prominent of which were Fjordman and Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch.

Those writers and others mentioned in the manifesto became the focus of a media frenzy beginning the following morning. Progressive pundits applied their usual pseudo-syllogism to the Utøya massacre:

1.   Breivik admired Fjordman.
2.   Breivik massacred innocent people.
3.   Therefore Fjordman was at least partially responsible for the atrocity. Q.E.D.
 

As I mentioned above, the Butcher of Utøya did not really look up to Fjordman; his admiration was a feint. So even the pseudo-syllogism was wrong. But none of that mattered; any information to the contrary was ignored by the left-wing media. Fjordman became an object of universal loathing. In Norway he was Public Enemy #1, in some ways eclipsing Breivik himself.

Up until that time Fjordman had only published his essays under a pseudonym. Beginning on the morning of July 23, the press and internet sleuths began an intensive effort to unmask him. It was only a matter of time before his real identity was uncovered, so after retaining counsel and making himself known to police, he outed himself via an interview with the tabloid VG. After that he fled the country and went into hiding.

And it’s a good thing he did: there were calls for him to be arrested and tried as Mr. Breivik’s accomplice, despite the fact that the two had never met, and Fjordman had never advocated violence in any form. But Norwegian public opinion did not bother itself with such trivial matters as facts and the truth. The slaughter on Utøya required a scapegoat, and Fjordman was chosen for the role.

He lived outside of Norway for a number of years, and only returned when the risk of arrest had diminished. However, he was unable to find work. Any prospective employer who was aware of who he was would refuse to hire him, and if he somehow found a job, even a menial one, he would be discharged as soon as his employer became aware of his identity. Now, ten years after the attack, he is living outside the country again, since he is unemployable in his homeland.

And, regardless of Mr. Breivik’s admission that his admiration for Fjordman was a ruse, Fjordman is still widely known as “Breivik’s mentor”.

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

I won’t go into the Breivik affair in great detail, since this is primarily a reminiscence about the effect the atrocity had on Gates of Vienna and the Counterjihad in general. To learn more, check out the archives for the period from July 22, 2011 to ca. November 2011. Or look up the relevant items in the Fjordman Files. The trial of Anders Behring Breivik sucked up a lot of our blogging oxygen in the spring of 2012; see Circus Breivik for a relevant sample.

Because Gates of Vienna was the main venue for Fjordman’s writings, and was mentioned repeatedly in the killer’s manifesto, this site was put under the media’s klieg lights beginning the day after the massacre. We were thrust into a prominence we had never seen before (or since). It was a hideous kind of fame that I would never have asked for — they say there’s no such thing as bad publicity, but my experience in the summer of 2011 makes me vehemently disagree.

In the first few weeks we received hundreds (maybe thousands) of emails. Some of them were simply requests for information, but they were mostly hate mail, sometimes in Norwegian and Swedish. Various media outlets wanted to contact Fjordman, and I dutifully passed the messages on to him, but he didn’t respond to any of them.

The number of comments at Gates of Vienna (which was still on blogspot at the time) rose into the hundreds for each post, many of them from obvious trolls and provocateurs employed by one or another state intelligence service. They soon became unmanageable, so we reluctantly closed the blog to comments for a couple of months. When we reactivated them, we made them subject to moderation, and they’ve been that way ever since. It’s frustrating and annoying for commenters to have to wait to see their contributions appear, but otherwise Dymphna and I would have been unable to cope with all the trolls and provocateurs.

By the beginning of the week following the attack, media outlets started contacting me. They somehow managed to obtain my phone number, and I received calls from newspapers in Norway and the UK. Needless to say, I declined to say anything to them.

During our fifteen minutes of lurid fame we were mentioned in The New York Times and The Washington Post, among other illustrious publications. The following report from the NYT told its readers that Anders Behring Breivik had commented on Gates of Vienna several times:

What they said was quite true. Fortunately, I had already been alerted to the fact by a European contact, who told me the pseudonym that had been used by Mr. Breivik, so I was able to track down all his comments. Some people urged me to delete them, but that’s not the way we do business here at Gates of Vienna. First of all, nothing ever disappears completely from the Internet; it can always be found in the Wayback Machine or other web archives. But more importantly, I don’t believe in hiding the truth, whether it makes me look bad or not. So I collected all of the Butcher’s comments and reposted them.

Other things published by major media outlets, particularly the British tabloids, were not as accurate. The Washington Post published my name and something about me that was completely, factually false. I sent them an email demanding that they retract and correct their error, but I knew that nothing would happen. All I could do was post about what they did and ridicule them. If I had been a famous movie actress or best-selling novelist who could afford to retain high-powered lawyers, I might have had more success. But the WaPo knows it has nothing to fear from minnows like me.

Other papers, especially the tabloids, published even more ludicrous falsehoods about Gates of Vienna — who we were associated with, where we got our funding, etc., etc. And they asserted various bogus things about other people in the Counterjihad whom I knew personally — so-and-so is funded by the Koch Brothers, or the Mossad, or whatever. Just absolute nonsense.

That summer taught me not to believe ANYTHING that I read in the media unless it is corroborated by multiple independent sources and has a breadcrumb trail that leads back to verifiable facts. Which doesn’t leave much. Reading media news reports has become a form of entertainment for me, like reading mystery novels or watching The Simpsons.

The general effect on the Counterjihad was catastrophic. A lot of sites, especially those in Europe, closed down for good. A number of Counterjihad activists I knew personally soiled their breeches and fled the field at the first whiff of grapeshot. I must admit that I became exasperated with them — I said, “You knew how serious this work was when you got into it. What did you think we were doing, playing tiddlywinks??”

However, in retrospect, I’ve had to acknowledge that they did what they had to do. Unlike me, most of them had day jobs. They stood to lose a lot if they were exposed. Some of them had families to support. I can’t judge them. They dropped out of sight, and I haven’t heard from them since.

A few people urged me to shut down Gates of Vienna. But my Scots blood comes to the fore at such times, and my natural response is defiance. I said, “F**K THAT S**T!” [emphasis in the original] and soldiered on. It was a rough time, and I didn’t get much sleep for the first couple of months. But we weathered the storm.

On the whole, however, it was a major setback from which the Counterjihad never fully recovered. The resistance to Islamization has never returned to the level of July 21, 2011. Freedom of speech has been eroded even further, and sharia is now de facto in force in much of the West.

Dymphna and I always thought that Anders Behring Breivik’s machinations had been guided and assisted by a certain three-letter agency with the assistance of Norwegian intelligence. His “compendium” was obviously in large part not his own work, and his selection of “mentors” was exquisitely chosen to do maximum damage to those who opposed Islamization, at the exact time when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in the thick of collaborating with the Muslim Brotherhood in what eventually became known as the “Istanbul Process”. Resistance to Islam was a thorn in her side, and Anders Behring Breivik helped remove it.

I don’t think mass slaughter was part of the plan, however — the Norwegians would never have co-operated with such an operation. I think the intention was to let Mr. Breivik put together his scheme, and then roll it up at the last moment before it was executed. There would have been a prominent arrest, followed by maximum media publicity for his manifesto.

However, just before the plans matured, Wikileaks released a damaging series of documents showing some of the things [agency name redacted] had been up to in Europe, which forced them to shut down their presence in the American embassy in Oslo and withdraw Mr. Breivik’s handlers. The Butcher of Utøya was then let off his leash, and the rest is history.

Whether mass slaughter was intended or not, the plan was a great success. The Counterjihad was hobbled, the spread of sharia proceeded apace, and the Obama administration became a servant of the Muslim Brotherhood. And the Biden administration is, in effect, Obama’s third term.

Before I close these remarks, I’d like to address an appalling issue that has emerged surrounding the mass murder committed by Anders Behring Breivik. When it first came up it was very distressing, but I’ve had ten years to get used to it. Now it’s just something that I have to endure whenever the topic is broached on this site.

In those early days I was shocked by the number of people who supported Mr. Breivik and considered him a hero for what he did. And I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and Aryan supremacists, but more mainstream people who oppose mass immigration and hate socialism. Every time I post something about the Butcher of Utøya they pop up again and express their admiration for him.

I’m not going to tolerate such comments, and will delete them when they appear. You might as well spare yourself the effort. If you want, you can visit Storm Front and similar sites and make your remarks there, where you’ll get a sympathetic reception and find a lot of people who agree with you.

I’m familiar with the arguments that people make to justify their opinion: Mr. Breivik was targeting future socialists, who would otherwise have grown up and entered politics and invited even more of the Third World into Norway. But that’s a specious line of reasoning, in my opinion. The mass slaughter only hardened public opinion against those who oppose mass immigration, and made it even more difficult to restrain such immigration. Killing all those kids inspired no sympathy for the Aryan cause; it had the opposite effect.

But that’s just the practical, utilitarian argument against it.

Mr. Breivik’s strategy was a recapitulation of one of the major trends of the 20th century: the mass extermination of entire classes of people. For him it was Young Socialists. For Hitler it was Jews, gypsies, communists, homosexuals, and the feeble-minded. For Stalin it was counter-revolutionaries, “wreckers”, the bourgeoisie, kulaks, and Ukrainians. For Pol Pot it was the intellectuals. For the Hutus it was the Tutsis. For Muslims it was Jews, Christians, Hindus, and other infidels.

What all the architects of those atrocities have in common is that they considered it morally justifiable, and even laudable, to engage in the mass slaughter of people based on their membership in a particular class — a race, a social class, an occupation, a nationality, etc. Individuals meant nothing. Those who engineered the massacres were not required to determine whether their victims were guilty of any crimes, or even subscribed to a particular ideology. They were members of a class, and for that reason they deserved to die. Men, women, children, invalids, the elderly and enfeebled — all had to go.

That is a pernicious mindset, and I’ll have none of it. It was the bane of the 20th century, and we’ve no business extending it into the 21st.

I know the counter-arguments — we’re in a war, and war sometimes requires us to do horrible things, etc., etc. If we want to win, we have to grit our teeth and do what is necessary.

Well, if that’s what it takes to win, then I don’t want to win. I’ll go down to defeat rather than jump into that particular boxcar to hell.

Disadvantaged and Marginalized Swedish Youths Take Hostages in an Eskilstuna Prison

Two misguided “Swedish” youngsters have reacted to years of discrimination and racism by taking two guards hostage in a prison in the Swedish city of Eskiltuna.

The conclusion of the following account is a sardonic spoof; the original on which it is based is here (see also this Yahoo News report). The inspiration for the final paragraph is this line from the original: “Tabloid newspaper Aftonbladet reports that they have offered to release one of the hostages in exchange for having 20 kebab pizzas distributed to other inmates.”

Swedish officials say two inmates have taken a pair of prison guards hostage. The Swedish Prison and Probation Service said they were barricaded inside part of the penitentiary 75 miles west of Stockholm in what officials described as “a very dangerous situation.” The prison service said the inmates abducted the prison officers after breaking into a guards’ room soon on Wednesday and covering up the surveillance cameras. Swedish media say the prisoners have demanded a helicopter to help them escape.

Tabloid newspaper Aftonbladet reports that they have offered to release one of the hostages in exchange for an advance of 20 virgins in anticipation of the 72 they expect to receive upon martyrdom. The Swedish government is making a frenzied effort to find virgins. Officials say privately that they are unlikely to locate that many before tonight’s deadline.

My attempt at gallows humor is not meant to detract from the seriousness of the situation in Eskiltuna. This is an ongoing story, and there’s no telling what the final outcome will be, but it may not turn out well for those two unfortunate guards.

Muhammad cartoonist Kurt Westergaard has died

by Almgren

The well-known Danish artist Kurt Westergaard has died at the age of 86. Westergaard became widely known when his illustration of the Muslim prophet Muhammad was published in Jyllands-Posten in 2005.

As a cartoonist at Jyllands-Posten, Kurt Westergaard became the embodiment of freedom of expression in Denmark, Berlingske writes in a obituary of the artist. His cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad created one of Denmark’s biggest foreign policy crises ever, Ekstra Bladet recalls.

Westergaard has described himself as “a culturally radical half-hippie who advocates peace, space for all and good coexistence.”

In addition to creating a foreign policy crisis, Westergaard’s drawing made him an object of hatred for Muslims around the world. According to information, a price of several million kronor was put on his head, the newspaper writes. He was soon forced to live under the constant protection of PET, the Danish security and intelligence service.

Attacked in his home

On January 1, 2010, a man with a Somali background broke into Westergaard’s home and attacked him with an ax and a knife. Westergaard escaped by locking himself in his bathroom, which the authorities refitted as a security room.

Police were quickly on the scene and shot the attacker in one leg and arm, after he also attacked them with his weapons. The man was sentenced to ten years in prison and then deported for life. Following the assassination attempt, Westergaard’s PET bodyguard protection was further expanded.

A couple of years later, a 29-year-old man was also arrested. This after making a bomb threat against Westergaard.

Westergaard was born in Døstrup in North Jutland. Before he started as a cartoonist at Jyllands-Posten in 1983, he had worked for several years as a teacher of German and a school inspector. At Jyllands-Posten, Westergaard continued to work as a subscriber until his retirement in 2010.

“I want to be remembered as someone who fought for freedom of speech. But there is no doubt that there are those who instead remember me as a Satan who insulted the religion of a billion people.”

Westergaard fell asleep in silence after a long illness. He leaves behind a wife, five children, ten grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Alas Poor Peter, I Knew Him Well

I’ve posted several times in the last couple of weeks (see here, here, and here) about Peter R. de Vries, a Dutch investigative journalist who was shot in the head on the street in Amsterdam and subsequently died of his wounds.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte is the leader of the VVD (Volkspartij Voor Vrijheid En Democratie, People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy), an allegedly center-right party. In the following video Mr. Rutte makes a few remarks about the death of Mr. de Vries. I’m not well-enough acquainted with the nuances of Dutch politics to comment either on the former’s sincerity or the latter’s character. Perhaps H. Numan will stop by later on and provide a windmills-and-tulips-centric point of view.

Federal government sends political commissars to German schools

by Manfred Rouhs

Education policy is actually a matter for the country. But the federal government has a say. It is now making use of this by training 151 full-time political commissars with whom it wants to bring German schools ideologically in line.

So that the action does not remind of bygone, totalitarian times, the political commissars of the 21st century are called “respect trainers”. Who or what should students learn to respect? Who else? Not their teachers, for example, but people of foreign origins. With a different skin color, language and nationality. 151 full-time employees are to fight racism in Germany’s schools from 2024, because, as Spiegel Online quotes a state secretary in the Ministry of Family Affairs:

“We must not tolerate political or religious extremism, hatred and misanthropy in our society — especially not in our schools.”

What happens to students who refuse to obey the political commissioners? Are they thrown out of school? — We will experience it and we can look forward to it.

“Extremism, hatred and misanthropy” are extensible and interpretable general-purpose terms that can be interpreted one way or another. For example, anyone who criticizes the policy of open borders can be classified as an “extremist” and suspected of “misanthropy”. Real disrespect for classmates Ali and Mustafa is not absolutely necessary for this.

From 2024 a wave of repression, spying and denunciation will descend on German schoolchildren, paid for with taxpayers’ money. A total of €36 million will then be spent on this each year. The AfD [Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany] parliamentary group has announced resistance to this. In a request, Götz Frömming requests clarification from the federal government.
