Erdogan Calls Macron a Loony

An unexpected side effect of the October 16 beheading of Samuel Patel has been an open diplomatic rift between France and Turkey. French President Emmanuel Macron’s response to the crisis provoked a reaction from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, causing the latter to question the former’s sanity.

The Élysée [residence of President Macron] denounces the “unacceptable” remarks of Erdogan against Macron

The Turkish president called on his French counterpart to “have mental health exams”, condemning his attitude toward Muslims. The Élysée has reacted and brought up the “absence of condolence and support messages” from Turkey after the assassination of Samuel Paty.

October 24, 2020

On Saturday 24 October the Élysée denounced the remarks, judged “unacceptable”, of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who called into question “the mental health” of his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, because of his attitude towards Muslims.

Earlier this Saturday during a televised speech, the Turkish president virulently criticized the decisions of his French counterpart towards the Muslim community. “All one can say of a chief of state who treats millions of members of different religious communities in this manner is: First go and have mental health exams,” he declared.

The speech was condemned by the Élysée at the end of the afternoon. “The remarks of President Erdogan are unacceptable. Excess and rudeness are not a method. We demand Erdogan change the course of his policy. It is dangerous to all. We do not enter into useless polemics, and we do not accept insults,” the Élysée commented, according to the AFP (Agence France Presse), in announcing the recall of the French ambassador to Ankara for consultations.

The Élysée also brought up “the absence of messages of condolence and support from the Turkish president after the assassination of Samuel Paty,” the teacher beheaded a week ago is an Islamic attack in the proximity of his school in a Parisian suburb. Also noted were the “very offensive statements (of Recep Tayyip Erdogan) in recent days, notably his call for a boycott of French products.”

The Turkish president did not stop there: He also predicted that Emmanuel Macron would lose the next presidential election in 2022, “because he has accomplished nothing for France. You spend your time attacking me. That will gain you nothing.”

Two weeks ago Recep Tayyip Erdogan denounced as a provocation the statements of the French president on “Islamist separatism” and the necessity of “structuring Islam” in France. A bill on the fight against “The separatisms” in France, directed at radical Islam, should be presented at the beginning of December. It aims to reinforce secularism and consolidate republican principles in France, and includes several points likely to provoke tensions with Turkey, such as strengthened control of mosque financing or a ban on the training of imams abroad.

This dispute is added to a long list of disagreements between Emmanuel Macron and his Turkish counterpart, who regularly takes up the defense of Muslim minorities throughout the world. From the tensions in the Mediterranean to the conflict in Libya, to the clashes in [Nagorno-]Karabakh, a number of issues currently pit Paris and Ankara against each other.

Over 28,000 Islamists and 2,060 potential threats in Germany

The security authorities assume that there are more than 28,000 Islamists nationwide and estimate the number of potential threats to be 2,060.

The number of unreported cases is likely to be higher; after all, with open borders and without border controls, you don’t know exactly who is in Germany.

While the security authorities are busy registering and monitoring Islamists, and on top of that dealing with the “fight against the right”, those in charge of politics are devoting themselves to the currently greatest threat to the country and are intensively concerned with the Corona ordinances and compliance with them.

This also includes persecution of mask-grumpy people, refusal of distance and quarantine and the imposition/collection of fines.

You just have to set priorities for “security”.

The Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution estimates the Islamist-terrorist potential in Germany at currently 2,060 people.

“The terrible act in Dresden shows that Islamist terrorism still poses a great danger in Germany,” said Constitutional Protection President Thomas Haldenwang in the newspapers of the Funke Media Group (Friday).

According to the report by Funke, the authorities assumes that there are more than 28,000 Islamists nationwide.

The security authorities continued to work on numerous dangerous issues with their combined forces and resolved the Islamist scene consistently, said Haldenwang.

The translator adds this comment:

Personally, I’m not in the least surprised, since the Merkelstani government makes its priorities extremely clear, even for the last sheeple — not that they will actually take note — that the government’s priority is the utter destruction of the German people.

O PRAECLARUM CUSTODEM OVIUM LUPUM. (How splendid, a protector of sheep is the wolf.)

Well done, German voters…

Knife Jihad in Dresden

Earlier this month a Syrian mujahid launched a terror attack in Dresden, using a knife against two tourists. He is a multiple recidivist, and did time several years ago when he was a “youth”.

MissPiggy has provided additional context: the two tourists were a gay couple, and were internal tourists from elsewhere in Germany, with international tourism virtually destroyed by COVID-19 restrictions.

Islamic knife attack in Dresden

by Gerhard Piper
October 22, 2020

Abdullah al-H. H. was considered a danger. He was released from prison at the end of September, and five days later committed the attack against tourists.

Abdullah al-H. H. is a Syrian citizen. In 2015 he came to Germany and lived in a home for asylum-seekers in Dresden-Pappriz (Wachwitzer-Höhenweg 1a). He possesses a short-term residence permit and is 20 years old.

Since the early summer of 2017 he began to be radicalized. Fatema A. recruited him for the Islamic State in July of 2017. The Syrian female was so badly wounded in an airstrike in 2012 that she has had to use crutches ever since. Her husband was apparently killed in a prison in 2015. In the year 2015 she came to Germany as a refugee. Her asylum request was granted. She created propaganda for the Islamic State. In July of 2016 she was promoting the then-ISIS on behalf of a compatriot at the Dresden University Clinic, as well as in July of 2017. In Internet chat she often posed as a man. According to the accusation she wanted to support an ISIS-connected sheikh in Morocco with €4,000.

In October or November of 2018 she was arrested and held in the Chemnitz prison. On July 15, 2019, her trial in the Higher Regional Court of Dresden began. Her defense attorney was Gisela Israel. On September 12, 2019, the Higher Regional Court of Dresden sentenced her to 15 months, which was suspended for a period of three years (Case number 4 St 2/19).

Abdullah al-H. H. described himself in a chat as a “sleeper cell”. He researched instructions on the Internet on how to build explosive belts, and was interested in the text “legal leader client for suicide killers”. The festival grounds of the Dresden Marien Bridge and the Cinema Nights on the Banks of the Elbe were apparently then in the sights of Abdullah al-H. H as possible targets for terror attacks. Since August of 2017 the Regional Criminal Police had classified him as a danger.

In September of 2018 the trial against him began in the Higher Regional Court of Dresden. On November 30, 2018, the court sentenced him to a youth sentence of two years and nine months for, among other things, recruiting members or supporters for the Islamic State, obtaining instructions for carrying out a serious state-endangering act of violence, bodily injury and threats. This punishment was carried out, according to the authority, by the district court in Leipzig on December 9, 2019, along with further sentencing for assault on an official and bodily injury.

The accused had to serve this youth sentence in full. Not until September 29, 2020 was he released by the Youth Penal Institution, Regis-Breitingen (Saxony). The district court in Borna ordered supervision for him. Thus he had to report three times weekly to the police station in Central Dresden.

On October 4, 2020 Abdullah al-H. H. committed a knife attack on two tourists in Dresden (Palace Street). One man from Krefeld (55 years) died in the hospital, and his companion from Cologne was wounded. At first, it was not clear why and by whom both men were attacked.

The police formed a special commission Palace Street (29 officers) under the direction of First Criminal Commissar, Frank Haschke. On October 20, 2020 Abdullah al-H. H. was arrested near the scene of the crime. Further investigation was taken over by the General Federal Prosecutor.

Islam’s Violent Assault on Democracy

Islam’s Violent Assault on Democracy

by Michael Copeland

Islam uses violence. That is a given. It is its modus operandi. Part of this violence is directed against democracy, the “man-made law” that Islam instructs Muslims to despise — “Man-Made Law Go To Hell,” says the placard.

Take, for instance, the recent demonstration in defence of free speech in Sweden. In an action that is perfectly legal, a Koran was set on fire. Within a short time, thanks to Western-invented mobile telephones, a crowd of Muslims, many unemployed and therefore available, was summoned to respond. They did so by burning tyres and cars, smashing windows, and hurling projectiles at not only police, but also fire service and ambulance personnel.

“We have an ongoing violent riot. We do not have the situation under control and it is worrying in the whole area,” Rickard Lundqvist, press spokesperson for the police in Malmö, told SVT.

Swedish police were outnumbered. They were obliged to admit defeat.

…after a risk assessment, the authority has concluded that the threat posed by violent Muslim groups is so extensive that the security of the demonstrators cannot be guaranteed or that third parties and property are not subjected to Muslim hate attacks.

Reprehensibly, and in a failure to uphold the law, they decided to move the goalposts: they announced that they were banning Islam-critical demonstrations in ALL places.

What is going on here? This is step-by-step capitulation. In effect, Swedish police are now administering Sharia law (where Koran-burning is prohibited). This calls to mind the Muslim Brotherhood’s “Explanatory Memorandum”, which set out their plan:

“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…”

Note “by their hands”. Swedish police have sabotaged democracy “by their hands”. Islamic mission accomplished.

Many Western governments are following the same pattern. Criminal riots in Paris cleared the way for Islamic No-Go Zones. The Manningham riots in Bradford UK were organised to establish that No-Go Zone. The carefully planned New Year’s Eve mass sexual assaults in Cologne were an attack on Western mores, Western dress, and the Christian calendar.

What reporters fail to draw attention to is that these “riots” are organised. They glibly say that they have been “triggered” by some Western action. No. They are INSTRUCTED in the mosques. The “Day of Rage” is a standard Islamic response, a show of force designed to intimidate the governing authorities into compliance with Islamic demands. A classic case was the Day of Rage outside the Danish Embassy in London. This was not “triggered” by cartoons of Mohammed in Danish newspapers. As this writer explained in “And Take Their Wives as War Booty”:

The Case for Affirming the Independence of the Armenian Republic of Artsakh/Nagorno-Karabagh

David Boyajian sends this update to his earlier reports on the ongoing conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia.

The Case for Affirming the Independence of the Armenian Republic of Artsakh/Nagorno-Karabagh

by David Boyajian

In recent years, many territories’ declarations of independence have been justifiably affirmed through international agreements. The Republic of Artsakh/Nagorno-Karabagh’s declaration of independence from Azerbaijan three decades ago is as legitimate as any of those. Artsakh is the republic’s ancient Armenian name.

Artsakh and Christian Armenia have been under attack by Azerbaijan, Turkey, jihadist terrorists, and ISIS since September 27. Turkey is using its army, American-built F-16 jets, drones, and other weapons against Armenians. Azerbaijan’s arsenal comes mostly from Israel, including illegal cluster bombs being targeted against civilians. Israel is currently resupplying Azerbaijan.

Artsakh, like Armenia, is thousands of years old. In contrast, no country named Azerbaijan existed before 1918. It was cobbled together out of a diverse population of what were called Muslims or Tartars, as well as Armenians, Persians, Russians, and others. No such identity as ‘Azeri’ had ever existed.

We’ll show that Artsakh justifiably and legitimately voted for self-determination as it separated from Azerbaijan, its previous temporary but brutish overlord.

The Stalinist Giveaway

Turkey and Azerbaijan speak Turkic dialects. Therefore, Soviet dictator Josef Stalin fantasized (incorrectly, as it turned out) that Mustafa Kemal (Ataturk) and his incipient Turkish Republic could be lured into the USSR’s web. So in the early 1920s, Stalin transferred Artsakh — then 96% Armenian — and the Armenian territory of Nakhichevan to Azerbaijan. Stalin’s blunder is the root cause of the present impasse over Artsakh.

Shortly before the transfer, Azerbaijan massacred Armenians in Artsakh, Baku (Azerbaijan), and elsewhere. These crimes were part of the Armenian Genocide that Turkey had already been committing from 1915 on.

Stalin also transferred Armenian land to Azerbaijan such that Artsakh became geographically cut off from Armenia. Many majority Armenian areas were also excluded from Artsakh. The latter became a nominally “autonomous” region within Soviet Azerbaijan but, in reality, under the latter’s heavy jackboot.

Artsakh voted for self-determination in accordance with Soviet law in 1988 and international law in 1991. Self-determination and territorial integrity have equal standing under international law. In response, Azerbaijan massacred Armenians in its own cities of Baku, Kirovabad/Ganja, and Sumgait. A war ensued which the outnumbered and outgunned Armenians won in 1994.

Artsakh’s long nightmare through seven decades of Azerbaijani rule was due not to Communism but rather to raw Azeri ethno-racial fanaticism.

Artsakh’s Long Nightmare

Under Azeri rule, Artsakh’s Armenians dropped from 95% to 76% of the population — the product of deportations, exile, murder, theft, oppression, and Azerbaijan’s calculating importation of Azeris to replace the Armenian majority.

The KGB’s Heydar Aliyev — father of current Azeri dictator Ilham Aliyev — admitted to exiling Artsakh’s Armenians and bringing in Azeris. Reported Russia’s REGNUM news agency: “I tried to increase the number of Azeris and to reduce the number of Armenians.”

Armenian historical figures’ titles were crudely Islamized to “Pasha” or “Bey.” The fifth-century Armenian historian Movses Khorenatsi became Muhammed al-Khojayi.

References to Armenian history in textbooks were excised. Even the written word Artsakh was banned.

The Beheading Plot Thickens

In the last few days there has been interesting news about the beheading of a French schoolteacher by a Chechen mujahid last Friday. It seems that the schoolteacher, Samuel Paty, was reported to the police for distributing pornographic images after he showed a Charlie Hebdo cartoon of Mohammed to his middle-school class.

But it gets even more interesting: the girl who told her father what happened in class to wasn’t even present the day the Motoon was shown. She simply passed on rumors of the event, which she claimed to have witnessed.

The video below is a news report on the police interrogation of Samuel Paty. Many thanks to Oz-Rita and MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

Gerald Grosz: “The Silence of the Stupid Lambs”

In recent months I’ve posted a number of video rants by Gerald Grosz, an Austrian politician for the BZÖ (Bündnis Zukunft Österreich, Alliance for the Future of Austria) and the FPÖ (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party). In his latest rant, Mr. Grosz compares the lack of reaction to the beheading of the French schoolteacher Samuel Paty to the worldwide media frenzy over the death of George Floyd.

Behold the Fundament of the Prophet!

The video below shows outraged reactions to the display of hundreds of Charlie Hebdo cartoons of Mohammed’s posterior in a public place in France. Someone — possibly a multitude of someones — went to a lot of trouble to blaspheme the Prophet and offend Muslims, in response to last week’s beheading of the schoolteacher Samuel Paty.

A Conspiracy to Behead

Here’s the latest update on the execution of the blasphemous infidel schoolteacher in Paris last Friday.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from Le Figaro:

The assassination of Samuel Paty: A parent of a pupil and the assailant exchanged messages before the attack

These exchanges are believed to have been on the message server, WhatsApp.

by Le Figaro and AFP
October 20, 2020

The pupil’s father who had called for a mobilization on social media against Samuel Paty, the professor assassinated on Friday 16 October near his school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine (Yvelines), exchanged messages by telephone with the assailant in the days that preceded the attack, AFP learned Tuesday from a source close to the case.

These exchanges are believed to have taken place on the message server WhatsApp, added this inside source, confirming news from BFMTV, without giving specifics as to their content.

The father of the female pupil had given his telephone number on Facebook in a message accompanying a video disseminated 8 October, in which he called for mobilization against Samuel Paty after a course on the Mohammad cartoons, which, according to him, his daughter attended. The latter, who is in the 4th year, was, indeed, part of a class in which Samuel Paty gave a course on freedom of expression on 6 October, but she was absent that day according to a source close to the case.

On 12 October he had disseminated a new video on YouTube targeting the teacher, in which the militant Islamist Abdelhakim Sefrioui appeared with him. The two men were taken into custody Tuesday afternoon in this anti-terrorist investigation, along with 14 other persons, including five students.

An Outpouring of Saccharinity in France

The mujahid decapitator of Paris has now been identified as an 18-year-old Russian Chechen named Abdoullakh A., and his schoolteacher victim as Samuel Paty. Both of them are dead — why is it that we only get an initial for the killer’s surname, but are given the full name of his victim?

I noticed in the photo accompanying the article that the Parisian Eloi have heaped up the usual saccharine “memorial” materiel outside the school where Mr. Paty taught. Savvy investors who bought teddy bear futures or stock in candle companies must be making a killing — so to speak.

Live: Teacher decapitated: A national tribute to Samuel Paty will be held Wednesday

Here is a late recap of the events that followed the murder Friday evening of Samuel Paty, a teacher decapitated because he had shown a cartoon of Mohammed to his pupils.

The assailant, killed by the police after the attack, has been identified as Abdoullakh A., a Russian-Chechen, 18 years of age, who was born in Moscow and came to France as a refugee with his family, stated the national anti-terrorist prosecutor Jean-Francois Ricard to the press. The killer was known for past common law offenses, but not by the intelligence services for radicalization. On 4 March 2020 he obtained a residence permit valid until March 2030. He had refugee status, and resided at Evreux in Normandy.

Ten people were in custody Saturday, including the parents, grandfather, and younger brother of the assailant, detained at Evreux (Eure). Also in custody is the father of the pupil who called for action against the teacher. He was placed in custody at Chanteloup-les-Vignes. The man who accompanied him to the college to complain about the teacher, and who interviewed the daughter of this parent of a pupil in a video, the militant Islamist, Abdelhakim Sefrioui, active in France since the middle of the years 2000, as well as his companion, were also arrested.

About 1,000 persons gathered Saturday afternoon in front of the college of Bois d’Aulne a Conflans-Saint-Honorine (Yvelines). Samuel Paty, age 47 and the father of a family, was a teacher of history-geography in this establishment. The teacher, known for his investment in his pupils, was “very well-thought of,” stated Armelle, whose 13-year-old son attends the college. In the morning, white roses were placed at the entrance to the college in this residential quarter, where pupils and parents are in a state of shock.

Large demonstrations of support are expected Sunday across the country. Representatives of the principal political parties, associations, and unions will demonstrate Sunday at 3pm in Paris, at the emblematic Square of the Republic, and in numerous other cities. A national tribute will be held Wednesday to this teacher of history and geography, the Élysée announced. And a defense meeting, presided over by Emmanuel Macron, is expected to take place Sunday. “Other expressions and announcements are planned after the meetings,” according to the executive.

The Thug Got What He Deserved

Yesterday a French schoolteacher was beheaded on the street in Paris by a man who shouted “Allahu Akhbar” during the attack (see the New York Post report). The killer, who was shot dead by police, is said to have been outraged that the teacher had shown a Charlie Hebdo Mohammed cartoon to his class, which included Muslims.

The following video, recorded by a prominent French imam, is allegedly what inspired the decapitation of the teacher. If the schoolgirl in the video is correct, the blasphemous image the teacher showed his class depicted the prophet with no clothes on. Assuming that is in fact the case, the picture may have been a panel from the special comic book series published by Charlie Hebdo in 2013, “La Vie de Mahomet”.
