The OSCE Itself Violates Civil Society Participants’ Fundamental Freedoms

Below is the prepared text for an intervention read yesterday afternoon by Christopher Hull of the Center for Security Policy (Secure Freedom) at OSCE Warsaw. The video of the intervention will be along in due course.

Intervention before the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE)
Participating States and Office of Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR)

At the Human Dimension Implementation Meeting (HDIM), Warsaw, Poland
Working Session 11: Fundamental Freedoms II

September 17, 2018

How ironic that this organization is itself violating fundamental freedoms.

For instance, at a February meeting this year, a senior official claimed that civil society must adhere to OSCE commitments.[1]

But we are not required to abide by those commitments — you are.

The OSCE Code of Conduct for Staff/Mission Members says you, and I quote, “shall comply with the… commitments of the OSCE.”[2] And what commitments?

1.   First, “respecting human rights and fundamental freedoms, including the freedom of thought, conscience…or belief, for all without distinction as to…belief, political or other opinion.”[3]
2.   Second, taking only “measures which do not endanger freedom of information and expression” in this space[4]; and
3.   Third, that civil society members, “specifically those with relevant experience, are particularly encouraged to participate in the discussion of the selected topics and to provide their suggestions and recommendations.”[5]
 

But in spite of such requirements, ODIHR has now gone further.

For this meeting, you required us to acknowledge a new “Code of Conduct.” It says, “[p]articipants shall refrain from presenting…any slogans that might be provoking,… likely to give rise to violence, [or] discriminating [against] other persons on the basis of…religion or belief, political or other opinion.”

But that is what you are doing.

That’s why Secure Freedom joined 28 civil society representatives from 14 countries in speaking out against your repeated attempts to shut down our fundamental freedoms.[6]

That’s also why the U.S. Opening Statement objected “to content-based restrictions on the participation of civil society.”[7]

And yet last week, ODIHR used its power to interrupt Civitas Christiana Foundation for expressing concern about threats, repression and intolerance by those who hold radical views of sexuality.[8]

The truth? OSCE’s own Code of Conduct says:

Car of Peace Charging Into a Crowd Gathered for Bullfighting

Feria de Nîmes is a popular festival centered on Spanish-style bullfighting that is held each year in Nîmes, in the south of France. In May 2012, the Feria celebrated its 60th anniversary.

A few days ago, a culture-enricher celebrated 1,400 years of jihad by attempting to drive his vehicle into a crowd of people in Nîmes.

Dr. Gottfried Curio: “The Primal Catastrophe of the Twenty-First Century”

The video below is a refreshing change of pace from the AfD-bashing we saw the other day: Dr. Gottfried Curio of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) speaking in the Bundestag about Chancellor Merkel’s immigration policies. If I understand it correctly, this is in fact the speech that got the knickers of the Gutmenschen all in a twist.

Pay particular attention when the video switches to shots of Angela Merkel’s face.

Mental Illness and “Allahu Akhbar!” at the Lyon Saint-Exupéry Airport

Many thanks to Ava Lon for translating this article from Les Observateurs:

Lyon: a man tries to run over passers by while yelling “Allahu Akbar” on the tarmac of an airport

September 10, 2018
source: Le Figaro

Air traffic was totally suspended this Monday after a car chase between a man and law enforcement on the tarmac of the Lyon Saint-Exupéry airport. He was shouting “Allahu Akbar”, according to the police sources, and he claimed to be “God’s emissary” when he was arrested.

A man was apprehended this Monday late morning by law enforcement after he trespassed on the tarmac of the Lyon Saint-Exupéry airport with his car, it was announced by the prefecture. He [rammed into and] broke two glass entrance doors of the Terminal 1, without injuring anybody.

He was shouting “Allahu Akbar” according to a police source and claimed to be “God’s emissary” when he was arrested. The Lyon Saint-Exupéry airport was closed. All flights have been diverted to Geneva.

Against the traffic at the highway

This vehicle was reported earlier, while cruising at high speed against the traffic, for tens of kilometers from l’Ain on the A46 and the A42, according to police. He was driving a Mercedes registered in Luxembourg. He was first stopped in the traffic by the Special Police Force, then he fled in his car and sped towards the Business Aviation Airport in Bron, trying, unsuccessfully, to run people over as he passed. Then he turned towards Part-Dieu, attempting to hit passersby there as well. To no avail.

He then allegedly continued his route in the direction of the Saint-Exupéry airport. While he was going towards the tarmac he was shot at four times by the police, but wasn’t hit, then [shot at] by a gendarme who also missed. A deputy security officer finally managed to subdue him with his baton. The suspect was arrested. According to a source from the Interior Ministry, the investigation is for the moment concentrating on the possibility of a mental disorder.

Incinerated by a Syrian Culture-Enricher

Angry culture-enrichers who burn women to death have apparently started a new trend in Romania. Our Romanian correspondent Stefan Cel Mare had just told us about an incident in which a Syrian immigrant incinerated a girl he was infatuated with. Shortly afterward came this completely different story about yet another Syrian who burned a woman to death in Bucharest.

Many thanks to cxt for the translation from Observator:

Syrian refugee arrested in connection with the Militari murder

A Syrian refugee is the main suspect in the Bucharest murder case. The man is suspected to have killed the woman who worked as a housekeeper in the Militari villa, most likely to take revenge on the daughter of the homeowners, who are also business people in the city. The Syrian had been released previously, although he was being investigated on a rape charge. He was caught last night and refused to talk to the prosecutors.

The man detained by the police is Mohamed Milad, a Syrian refugee. Surveillance cameras caught him multiple times visiting the villa in the Militari neighborhood [of Bucharest], belonging to the businessmen, where three nights ago, a woman was found murdered and burned.

The 32-year-old was a close friend of the homeowners’ daughter, sources from the investigation say. He visited her on the night of the murder as well.

The Syrian tricked his girlfriend by pretending he was leaving. He hid in the garden behind a tree, [he waited for the homeowners’ daughter to leave] and then he rushed into the house.

While the Syrian was hiding, the daughter of the owners left the house and went on vacation. The man was then alone with the 44-year-old maid living in the basement. On the burned body of the victim, the coroners found signs of physical violence. [Note: other news reports mention blows to the head, cuts on the body and the victim’s being found in a pool of her own blood. The killer then set fire to the house to try to cover his tracks.]

Prosecutors from the Bucharest Prosecutor’s Office and homicide investigators came to Sector 6 home for on-site investigation.

Mohamed Milad declined to make statements. The man arrived in Europe as a refugee and settled first in Germany. In 2016 some of the Syrian community there was in the midst of a big scandal after some refugees had committed acts of violence. [Note: the video report briefly shows a scene from the 2015/2016 New Year’s Eve mass sexual assaults in Germany.]

Did We Forget?

Seventeen years is a long time.

Or it is for younger people; for someone of my advanced age, events of seventeen years ago seem like just the other day. Assuming I can remember them at all, that is.

September 11, 2001 is one of those days I can remember quite clearly: what I was doing, the course of events during the day and for the next few days. I assume it’s the same for many people in my age bracket: those hours are now permanent markers, stuck fast in the brain until the final dissolution removes everything.

In contrast, consider someone who has just graduated from high school. He was just a tiny infant back then, so everything he knows about 9/11 — assuming he is aware of it at all — he learned from his parents, or his teachers, or the TV, or his phone.

A young woman who just graduated from college this past spring is not that much better off. She was probably aware that the adults around her were upset and acting strangely. She probably saw some confusing and disturbing images of destruction and panic on television. But other than that, her knowledge of 9-11 would be from her elders, the TV, her phone, and her college professors.

The cohort who took their doctorates last spring — with a median age of what? 26, maybe? — fare slightly better. They were in grade school at the time, and in the days following surely they heard discussion in class from teachers who had not yet fully assimilated the politically correct line on what happened in Manhattan and Washington on that beautiful fall day.

And so it goes, on up through the age groups until you reach us geezers, who definitely remember. Or at least some of us do.

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

I saw a hash tag yesterday: #NeverForget911.

My reaction was immediate and cynical: It should read #WeForgot911.

But how much forgetting has really taken place? Of those who were adults in the fall of 2001, how many paid attention, assimilated the memories, and incorporated them into a meaningful structure that was permanently retained? And how many simply went back to the way they had lived before, letting 9/11 become a brief blip in an otherwise undisturbed succession of life experiences?

I don’t know the answers to those questions. My intuition tells me that many younger people — who have been subjected to far more relentless indoctrination than I ever have — regard 9/11 through the politically correct lens that their education and the media have so painstakingly constructed for them.

My intuition also says that those of us who were over fifty when it happened probably retain a slightly less propagandistic memory of it. But only slightly, most of us — my generation stares at the vidscreen a lot, too.

For some of us, however, the events of September 11, 2001, were the beginning of seventeen years of close investigation of Islam. Back then I had read V.S. Naipaul’s Among the Believers. But nothing else. The Sword of the Prophet by Srdja Trifkovic was to come later. The writings of Robert Spencer later still. And then Reliance of the Traveller and Steve Coughlin. And much more in the years since.

In seventeen years I have learned enough to know that the dominant Western cultural narratives about Islam are simply false. If you do your investigations with due diligence — and especially if you follow Maj. Coughlin’s advice, and read sources written by Muslims, intended for a Muslim audience — you learn the extent to which you have been lied to and misled by your own leaders, who themselves have listened to the whispers of Muslim Brotherhood infiltrators.

The construction of what became the current Narrative began shortly after 9-11 with President George W. Bush, the man who inspired us all when he stood on the rubble of the World Trade Center. Islam was proclaimed to be the Religion of Peace (and eventually the “Religion of Peace and Love”, by Condoleezza Rice). A great religion had been hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists. The words “Islamism” and “Islamist” were coined to provide good cover for our friends, the nice Muslims, the “moderate” Muslims. The word “Islamophobe” gained greater and greater currency to describe those who refused to swallow the Narrative.

And so on and so forth, until we arrive at the present day, seventeen years later, when it is no longer possible to publicly assign the problem to Islam itself. Islam unmodified, without prefixes or suffixes. The core ideology, which is not religious, but political. A totalitarian ideology which has world domination as its long-term goal — 1,400 years and counting.

You can’t say those things and expect to hold onto your job, even if it’s with a private corporation. If you wear a slogan like that on a t-shirt, you risk a public beating.

And there are more Muslims now in all Western countries, and more official or unofficial rules against offending them, more public recognition of their sacred days and customs and sensibilities.

Yes, #WeForgot911.

At least enough of us did to facilitate the eventual victory of the Sword of the Prophet.

First Chemnitz, Now Köthen

Köthen is a town the German state of Saxony-Anhalt. Like Chemnitz (which is in Saxony) it is in the former DDR. Also like Chemnitz, it has seen recent mass protests about the death of a local resident after a violent encounter with culture-enrichers.

The incident in Köthen differs in some respects from the one in Chemnitz. The victim died of heart failure after being beaten by Afghan migrants, but the medical examiner determined that death was due to a previously existing heart condition, and was not directly attributable to his injuries. The residents of Köthen are not mollified by this explanation, and have taken to the streets in protest.

German media outlets are now following the standard left-wing playbook in their reporting on Köthen: the demonstrators are “right-wing extremists” and “neo-Nazis”. News reports emphasize the victim’s unrelated cardiac failure as the cause of death, and make sure to tell their audience that the deceased’s brother is a convicted right-wing extremist.

In other words: Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

The first two videos below are MSM reports on what happened in Köthen. The third one contains excerpts from a speech given by an unidentified man during one of the demonstrations.

The War Against the West? Still Going Strong!

In the following essay our Dutch correspondent H. Numan provides a refresher course (or introductory course, in the case of newly-minted “Islamophobes”) about the history of Islam’s continuous war against Europe.

The war against the West? Still going strong!

by H. Numan

The war for the West isn’t going to start any day soon, as most people seem to think. It’s already underway. Or more accurately: it has never stopped since 622 AD. Most people only know a little bit about some major conquests, and not a lot of those. Nothing about the many countless smaller battles and wars that continued almost non stop. Some people know about the Battle of Roncevalles or Roncevaux in 788 AD, mainly because of the Song of Roland. Fewer people know about Charles Martel, who defeated the mohammedan invasion decisively earlier in France. Fewer people still know about the many invasion attempts deep into France almost to the Swiss border. And it didn’t stop there. Of course here at Gates of Vienna we know about the siege of that city in 1683.

Did you know that hussars were a Hungarian answer to Turkish invasions? I’ll bet you win a lot of drinkies in the bar if you challenge your friends with that one. Not the first time the Hungarians bore the brunt of the attack.

We don’t learn about it. It’s not politically correct. You have to figure everything out for yourself. If you read up, as I did, you will notice our war began in 622 AD and never really ceased. All you can hope for is for a Chamberlainian ‘peace for our time’. Not for your children, certainly not for your grandchildren. Islam is very much like cancer. You have to eradicate it completely. Otherwise it will grow back. Usually much stronger and far more aggressive. The virus very much learns from past experiences. Let one single cell be, and you are mortal peril. That’s a bold statement, but regretfully, it’s the truth. Dr. Bill Warner counted over 700 battles for Europe, from 622 AD until today.

“But we can live in peace with muslims; we have done that always,” whine politically correct dhimmis — left and right. No, we didn’t. But we don’t read about it. You have to dig for it. We didn’t in the past, as you can’t learn everything from history. The relatively unimportant parts were left out. Those parts are coming back to hound us now.

That’s why we discovered America. After the end of the crusades — which we lost — Constantinople had fallen to the Turks. They now controlled the Silk road to China. The sultan wasn’t interested in continuing trade, not even at extortionate rates. An alternative route had to be found. Sailing along the coast of Africa was highly dangerous, because of the Barbary coast pirates (next paragraph). That is one of the reasons why Columbus tried to sail to the west. It was at least an indirect consequence of the crusades.

We have to do it all over again. This time not with spices but with oil. There is a lot of oil in the world, but most of it lies below Arab countries. Back then our need of spices was used to strangle the West, now they do it with oil. When spice prices got high enough, it became commercially viable to take the dangerous and expensive sea route instead of the overland route. Likewise, we will have to find alternatives for Arab oil. Shale oil becomes an economical alternative if OPEC holds onto its monopoly. The same for alternative energy sources. History repeats itself.

Forgotten are the many Barbary wars we had to fight. Not only Dutch fought them, but the West in general. Like England and France. Even America had to. Your founding fathers were just as dumbfounded about mohammedanism as we are today. Few people are aware that the area of the North African coast was known as the Barbary Coast for centuries. Its rulers extracted tribute for allowing ships to trade along the African coast and into the Mediterranean. That tribute was jizya. Our Michiel de Ruyter had to fight several battles and wars against them. So did your Thomas Jefferson.

Thomas Jefferson once asked a Barbary representative why they couldn’t leave people alone and why they levied such high fees and never kept their side of the agreement. The muslim was very much surprised. Why, you have to pay jizya, of course. You are a non-believer. We can do anything we want with unbelievers. He even said the ultimate goal was world domination. Yes, even back then. He didn’t commit Taqiya, which is unusually rare for a muslim.

The Murderer of Mia in Kandel Will Serve at Most Eight Years in Prison

Last year we featured a series of reports about the murder of a 15-year-old girl named Mia in the German town of Kandel. The accused murderer was a young culture-enricher from Afghanistan named Abdul D., who was allegedly also 15 years old. However, he was plainly considerably older than that; in the photos he looks to be in his mid-twenties. One of the TV news outfits corroborated this assessment by visiting his hometown and talking to people who knew him.

None of that mattered to the prosecutorial authorities, who tried him as a juvenile. As a result he couldn’t be sentenced to more than ten years in prison, and when he pled guilty, he was given a sentence of eight and a half years. I don’t know how much time he will likely serve — in many European countries, offenders customarily serve about half their sentences, and sometimes less.

I’d bet money that he can’t be deported after he gets out, because his homeland is “unsafe”.

Alice Weidel: “This is a Script Taken From the Madhouse”

Alice Weidel is the leader of AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany), the anti-immigration and anti-Islamization party that now has a presence in the Bundestag.

In response to the recent media frenzy over events in the eastern German city of Chemnitz, Ms. Weidel addressed the prevarications (either deliberate lies, or inadvertent falsehoods) about what happened during the recent demonstrations in Chemnitz. It has now been definitively established, by both local and national law enforcement authorities, that no “right-wing extremists” chased down or hunted any migrants. Yet Chancellor Angela Merkel and her Mini-Me continue to retail their fictive account of events, so the AfD leader is now calling them on it.

How to Become an Unperson in the Swedish Academy: Publicly Discuss the Statistics on Gang Rapes by Culture-Enrichers

Bilyana Martinovski is an associate professor in Human-Machine Interaction at the University of Stockholm (her Twitter account). She initiated a research product on aggravated rapes (gang rapes, violent rapes, rapes at knifepoint, etc.) in Sweden, which of course are mostly committed by third-world immigrants. In the process of collecting statistics, when she tweeted about what she had learned — just the statistics, mind you, based on official public judicial sources — she was immediately condemned as a “racist”, a “Nazi”, and all the other epithets that opponents of mass immigration have become accustomed to.

More significantly, her position at the university was immediately terminated, and the person who denounced her also wrote letters to other universities, thereby making certain that she would be unable to find further employment in her field.

The two videos below are from a two-part interview with Dr. Martinovski. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for conducting the interview and uploading the videos.

The Truth is Spoken in a German Television Studio — And the World Doesn’t End

Peter Hahne is a German television presenter, journalist, author and theologian. In a recent television interview he spoke lucidly and forthrightly about the grievous error of allowing mass immigration into Germany — the kind of truth that I thought was not allowed on German television.

MissPiggy, who translated the clip for subtitling, sends this brief bio of Mr. Hahne:

Peter Hahne is a former ZDF co-moderator and editor. Hahne moved to ZDF’s main editorial department “Aktuell” where he worked as co-moderator and editor of Heute-journals (1989-1991) and studio editor of the main issue of Heute (1991-1999). He was also at the development of the children’s news show logo! which he moderated until 1991. From 1999 until the end of March 2010 Hahne was the deputy director of the ZDF capital city studio in Berlin, moderated alternately with Peter Frey for the political magazine Berlin with the ZDF summer interviews.
