Sweden: The Death of a Nation

by Svenne Tvaerskaegg

Like a drunk the morning after a magnificent binge, Sweden is slowly waking up to the grim reality of the past few decades as a humanitarian superpower and the hangover is going to be of monstrous proportions.

The Swedes were a privileged people. Their hard-working Lutheran forefathers handed over to their keeping a wealthy, modern, homogeneous and well-functioning Scandinavian nation with one of the highest standards of living in the world. Their future was secured; they had all a people could wish for. And they completely squandered it.

The damage recent generations of Swedes have wreaked on their own country is almost beyond comprehension. Coming generations of Swedes will inherit a country in shambles and struggling with insurmountable problems. Ghettos, crime, segregation and ethnic strife are now the hallmarks of the once progressive nation. And perhaps the worst thing of all for the grandchildren of today’s Swedes: in the second half of this century they will in all likelihood be just one competing minority amongst many in what was once their own country. It will be a country no previous generations of Swedes would recognize — poor, shabby, Middle Eastern and African in appearance and dominated by Islam.

What went wrong for the Swedes was they became infected by what author Tom Wolfe called “radical chic”, revolutionary romanticism. The 1960s generation of spoiled middle-class rebels in their Che Guevara T-shirts completed their degrees in social sciences and feminist studies and went on to careers in politics, education and the civil service. Many of them went into media and journalism. Their solidarity with the oppressed of the third world knew no bounds, and from their positions of power and influence they could put their revolutionary romanticism into practice.

Sweden’s coffers were opened to third world revolutionary movements and their charismatic and radical young leader, Prime Minister Olof Palme, flirted with left-wing dictators and subversive groups across the globe. It was a heady time. By decree Sweden became multicultural, the borders were thrown open to mass immigration and the decay started. The fervor with which the revolutionary romantic elites pursued their goal was practically religious in character and tolerated no dissent. Politicians promised voters that mass immigration enriched Sweden; it brought economic and cultural wealth and made their country a much better place. State television and the press abandoned their critical role and trumpeted the same official message.

A few cautious dissenters raised warning voices but were soon shouted down. They were hung out in the media as “racists” and “xenophobes”. Ridiculed and vilified, they lost friends and jobs and were sometimes even hounded out of the country.

One early and high profile dissident was the university lecturer and Swedish member of parliament for the Liberal party Mauricio Rojas, himself an immigrant to Sweden from Chile. As the Liberal party spokesman on refugee and integration matters, he saw the damage uncontrolled third world immigration was doing to Sweden and warned the Swedes the path they were following would inevitably lead to disaster unless there was serious public discussion and radical reform. The retaliation was swift. Publicly branded a “xenophobe”, he was held up to public derision in the media. He received death threats from left-wing extremists and was put under 24 hour guard by Säpo, the Swedish security police. The campaign of character assassination continued unabated for months afterwards and demands were made for his removal from parliament. Unable to live in the country any longer Mauricio Rojas left Sweden forever and took up a position as a university lecturer in Spain.[1]

The End Times of Albion: Timeline — First Period, 1945-1983

The essay below by Seneca III is the latest in the “End Times of Albion” series.
Previously: Part 1, Part 2.

Timeline — First Period, 1945-1983

The End Times of Albion, Part 3

by Seneca III

This analysis began two months ago when the Telford story broke overnight on 10th/11th March. The original intention was to dig deep into the underbelly of that forty-year atrocity and extract from the quagmire of reportage and the local historical record some idea as to how the mass rape, sexual trafficking, torture and brutal abuse of hundreds, possibly thousands, of white girl children there could come about and be ignored or brushed under the political carpet by so many for so long.

What it has uncovered is a nationwide, indeed Europe-wide, state of affairs that is a complex, mind-numbing web of subtle treachery and political ambition dating back to the 1920’s. This web grew slowly in the shadows during the long period of its gestation and has evolved into a tapestry of confusion, collusion, concealment, obfuscation and Marxist-Socialist indoctrination from which mendacious Western establishments created the warp and weft of the Grand Conspiracy that has brought us to this defining place and time.

In conclusion, Telford was neither a singularity, an accident nor an aberration; it is the end result of a multinational, century-long operation formulated with the objective of changing the course of Anglo-European and global history, and which is now rapidly approaching its apogee.

Thus, the emergence into full public view of the Telford abomination should come as no surprise to an informed though now cowed and multiculturally brainwashed indigenous population at large. It is but another demonstration of our journey down the road to perdition exemplified by the application of well-oiled group-think indoctrination through the enforced silence of the native victim groups and their communities via draconian hate crime laws ordained at the highest levels of government.

It is axiomatic that few history-changing events ever happen in temporal isolation, nor rarely in a single geographic location; there is always a chain of subtle, interconnected and barely noticeable precursors, the first faint ripples in the fabric of the structural ethos of a race, culture, nation, tribe or alliance which tend to disappear below the perceptual horizon of the body politic as a whole as it goes about its busy existence. Then, slowly, these ripples become deep rents and increase in frequency and severity until they reach a point where even the most inattentive eye can see that they portend a collapse from within and/or destruction from without.

Such a time is now upon us, and events in the timeline below and those to follow illustrate the connections between consecutive and parallel stages of the process. The ‘Grand Scheme of Things’ is being implemented through the mass importation of violent third-world, low IQ, feral predators with the intention of hastening the end of Western intellectual, moral and cultural strengths through the internal repression of long-heritage citizens and their consequent regressive mongrelisation. The ultimate objective is the elimination of the Caucasian blood line.

On the 18th of April the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on British Muslims launched their “appeal for evidence” Monday, describing “Islamophobia” as a form of “group based hatred or hostility” comparable to racism.

Their letter does not acknowledge there might be rational reasons to have reservations about rising levels of radical Islam and the growing influence of Islam in the West generally.

The call for submissions also only mentions free speech concerns at the end, in passing, describing them as “questions possibly outside the scope of this report”.

They aim to develop a definition of Islamophobia that can be “widely accepted by Muslim communities, political parties, and the Government”, the document adds.

Baroness Warsi, the parliamentary group’s treasurer and one of its four elected officers, tweeted: “To effectively challenge #Islamophobia we must comprehensively define it.”

(Breitbart London, 24th April)

If you don’t live on this benighted Island, then try to understand this — wherever you are, you are next if you are not already enriched, for here over a million girl children have been drugged, raped, tortured and impregnated and still more are in the process (The Halifax sequel will break soon unless our beloved establishment, as is their wont, manage to bury it).

Caveats: Links, quotations and citations are kept to an absolute minimum for reasons of space and simplification of comprehension, but interested readers are encouraged to undertake their own, deeper research using dated elements in the timeline as a starting point. Apart from needing to keep this analysis as short as possible and within the scope of a blog, I have not included mention of two World Wars and most of the semi-major and minor conflicts that have taken place within the timeline. I have done this on the assumption that the majority not mentioned categorise either as direct consequences of the Globalisation Project rather than as
initiators, are either unconnected or of relatively minor importance.

The same thinking particularly applies to WW II and the period that saw the end of European and East Asian Colonial Empires and the rise of new ones. Both trends, especially the Partition of India in 1949, can be traced back with various degrees of certitude to WW II and the Cold War which followed and are deserving of a case study of their own for which I do not have the space or time here.

General Timeline of Deconstruction

1920’s to the present — The birth and evolution of the ‘Racism’, (embryonic) ‘Political Correctness’, ‘Diversity’, ‘Multiculturalism’ and ‘Affirmative Action’ behavioral imperatives and the first implementations of a strategy to infiltrate and suborn Western educational establishments — in essence, the battle for our minds and those of our children.

Also, contributions from the ‘Frankfurt School’, the ‘Cloward-Piven Strategy’ (1966), the ‘Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan’ (C-K was the author or the subject of 37 major publications spread over the period 1922-1972), Saul D. Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ (1971) and Common Purpose (1989).

Collectively the clever manipulation of the ‘Mea Culpa!’ Syndrome utilised as a Marxist-Socialist revolutionary tool.

First Critical Period — De-colonisation and the rise of globalism

1945 to 1947 — Post-War reorganization across Europe. Immigration to the UK from the nascent Commonwealth begins in earnest.

1947 — The Partition of India, which resulted in the creation of two independent dominions, India and Pakistan, and the subsequent emergence of modern Bangladesh as an independent nation in 1971 after breaking away and achieving independence from Pakistan in the Bangladesh Liberation War.

1947 — The All-Party Group for World Governance, previously the All-Party Group for World Government, was founded by a British Labour Party politician, Henry Charles Usborne (16 January 1909 — 16 March 1996). At its peak, it had over 200 members from the House of Commons and the House of Lords.


Henry Charles Usborne, Clement Edward Davies, Gilbert McAllister, Mary Tibaldi Chiesa

1947 onwards — The rate of ‘Commonwealth’ occupation of the UK from backward areas of Bangladesh and Pakistan such as Azad, Kashmir and Punjab increases. Today those areas are rich in new, grandiose villas with driveways full of expensive cars purchased with monies, predominantly benefit handouts, tribally repatriated from the UK. Meanwhile, their encampments in the occupied territories of the UK and Europe turn out a never-ending stream of parasites, common criminals, rapists, bombers, propagandists and general duty jihadis.

Chechen Migrant in Vienna Murders 7-Year-Old Girl

Last week a Chechen culture-enricher murdered a little girl in an immigrant neighborhood of Vienna. His motive? He was in a bad mood.

As I understand it, the victim also has a “migration background”. If this is how Muslim immigrants treat their own kind, just think how little the life of a kafir child must mean to them.

The Crackdown on Identitäre Bewegung Österreich

As reported in the news feed last week, ten members plus seven other associates of the Austrian Identitaire movement (Identitäre Bewegung Österreich) have been charged with hate crimes. The article below from ORF Styria describes the legal action in more detail.

To a non-Austrian observer, the crackdown by the authorities may seem perplexing. A few months ago a new right-wing government took office in Austria — a coalition of the ÖVP (Österreichische Volkspartei, Austrian People’s Party) and the FPÖ (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party). The new government’s positions are very close to those of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán — that is, they oppose mass migration, object to the diktats of Brussels, and call for stronger border control. So why would they go after the Identitarians?

The government’s actions are largely based on the policies of the FPÖ and its leader Heinz-Christian Strache. However, the FPÖ is the junior partner in the coalition, while the ÖVP is the senior partner. All indications are that Chancellor Sebastian “Boy” Kurz is a cynical opportunist with no discernible principles — he saw which way the political winds were blowing in Austria and trimmed his sails accordingly. It seems likely that the crackdown on the Identitaires is simply a move to nobble a potential rival power center.

So what does Mr. Strache think of all of this? Throughout his career his ideological positions have been very similar to those of the Identitaires. If his opinions — unlike those of his boss — are held sincerely, the blatant crackdown on the Identitaires must surely not sit well with him.

Incitement: Ten Identitarians Accused

The State’s Attorney of Graz has charged ten leading members of the Identitarian Movement — also estimated by Security as right-extremist. They are accused of incitement and criminal association.

As early as April, there were house searches at the homes of Identitarian spokesman Martin Sellner and co-leader Patrick Lenart. Now the State’s Attorney of Graz has charged ten leading representatives of the Identitarian Movement Austria (IBÖ) as well as seven other sympathizers with incitement and criminal association and to an extent, criminal mischief and coercion.

According to the authorities, most of the accused had already participated in 2012 in founding the “Organization for Preservation and Furtherance of Cultural Identity.” Besides the registered members there are a number of actively supportive sympathizers.

The rightist-extreme group is financed to a great extent by member donations. “The members see European cultural identity threatened by multiculturalism, liberalism and Islamization. The IBÖ and its activists are striving for the strict separation of peoples living in Europe, and reject the cultural ‘mixing’ of ethnicities,” says the statement from state Security.

“Islam and Islamist Terror Made Equivalent”

Since the founding of the movement in Austria, its representatives have attempted “to spread their xenophobic ideology through provocative actions, comments on the internet, demonstrations, regular local meetings, posters, as well as the sale of propaganda material by way of an enterprise founded in 2016 solely for that purpose.”

In the process, the prosecution explained, the group also made use of the public’s steadily mounting fear of radical Islamist terror attacks, in oder to represent Islam and any Muslim or Muslim group as potential terrorists.

Since the beginning of 2016, the leading members of the group have succeeded with often spectacular actions to raise the group’s public profile.

A “flourishing enterprise” has been built with their mail-order sale of uniform-like vests, jackets, pants and buttons, posters and stickers with the group’s logos, as well as books and tapes.

According to the charges, the goal of redeeming society has produced for two of the accused not only a regular income, but also the financing of some of the actions that boost the revenue of their right-extremist undertaking.

Katie Hopkins in Molenbeek: “The Jihad Capital of Europe”

Katie Hopkins is a popular and outspoken British columnist and TV personality who has caused controversy with her reports on immigration, Islamization, and white genocide in South Africa, among other things.

Ms. Hopkins recently visited Molenbeek, a notoriously culturally enriched district of Brussels. While she was there she confronted the mayoress, and also caused outrage among the bien-pensants by referring to Molenbeek as the “jihad capital of Europe”

Many thanks to Ava Lon for translating this Belgian TV report, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Below is the accompanying article, also translated by Ava Lon:

Belgium: Molenbeek “capital of jihad”, controversial report on Fox News

In a highly biased report, the ultra-conservative US channel Fox News presents the Brussels municipality of Molenbeek as the “capital of jihad in Europe”, provoking the anger of the mayor, Françoise Schepmans.

May 14th 2018

“Have you been warned that Salah Abdelsalam (the only survivor of commandos of the November 13 bombings in Paris) was suspected of terrorism?” The tone is set from the outset. The columnist Katie Hopkins, who is reporting in Molenbeek, calls on Françoise Schepmans (Reform Movement), the mayor of the Brussels district.

The latter is trying to explain that it’s not some simple local police officers who follow these kinds of individuals, to no avail: in her commentary live on the American Fox News, Katie Hopkins very calmly explains that the mayor didn’t do her job because she worries more about the votes of her constituents.

“Politicians turn a blind eye because they depend on the Muslim vote. This is why attacks have been planned in Belgium.”

Katie Hopkins, columnist on Fox News

The “worst bitch in the UK”

Katie Hopkins is not at her first rodeo. A former columnist for the English tabloid Sun, she has published numerous more-than-questionable outbursts about the obese (“lazy” according to her), redheads, the poor, and even migrants, whom she compares to “cockroaches”. The former British reality TV hostess has made hate a real business. So much so that she has been dubbed “the worst bitch in the UK”. An entire program…

This time, during her three days in Molenbeek, she explains that she was asked to wear the burqa. Katie Hopkins then buys a full veil on camera and changes in a quiet place. She doesn’t hesitate to explain that if Molenbeek is the “capital of jihad in Europe” it’s because the municipality has no fewer than 22 mosques. Islam, terrorism… follow her gaze…

After the report was broadcast, Mayor Françoise Schepmans reacted strongly. According to her, Katie Hopkins did not introduce herself as a journalist and the elected [official] swears that she didn’t realize that another person was filming her. Her interlocutor “had a well-planned scenario: she was in Molenbeek to demolish the town”.

More influential than a real journalist, still, Katie Hopkins is being followed by half a million subscribers on Twitter.

László Földi: “The Majority of European Politicians are TRAITORS!”

The following panel discussion is from Tuesday’s Hungarian TV program “Szemtől szembe” [Face to Face]. The moderator is Balázs Somorjai, and the guests are the intelligence analyst László Földi and Zoltán Lomnici, Jr., a constitutional lawyer.

The discussion among the three men concerns the Great European Migration Crisis — its origins, causes, and intended effects. Cui bono? Who stands to make a profit from all these illiterate unemployable Muslim migrants, and how?

A civil, lucid, and reasonable discussion such as this one is all but unheard of west of the Iron Curtain. Many thanks to CrossWare for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Congo on the Rhine

As we posted earlier this month, Beatrix von Storch, the Deputy Leader of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany), made the a video in response to an incident at an asylum facility in the southern German town of Ellwangen, where a couple of hundred African migrants attacked the police when the latter attempted to deport a Togolese asylum seeker. The police were forced to flee, and it wasn’t until a couple of days later that the authorities returned with overwhelming force and successfully rousted the troublesome culture-enricher.

Oz-Rita, who translated and subtitled the von Storch video, has posted a follow-up as part of a piece called “The Congo Rules the Rhein”. It includes a translation of an article about Ellwangen that Dr. Alice Weidel, the co-leader of the AfD, posted on her Facebook page:


Asylum seekers from Ellwangen
demonstrate against the police!
The height of insolence!

That knocks the bottom out of the barrel: In Ellwangen, so-called refugees from Africa demonstrated yesterday against the police operation last week. On May 3, 200 residents of the same asylum shelter charged patrolmen and so blackmailed the release of a Togolese man who had to leave the country. Meanwhile it became known that he could easily return to Germany after his deportation to Italy.

The audacity with which asylum seekers can now act is hard to believe. There is no sense of wrongdoing, instead there is the impertinence to demonstrate against the police after the latter have been violently attacked.

To make matters worse, the Togolese, who provoked the riots against the police, may after his eventual deportation to Italy reenter the country. Italy as the first country that the African entered illegally is also responsible for his deportation.

It is not acceptable for criminals to exploit the system of open borders while the rule of law seems helpless. An asylum seeker who violates the applicable law in a Schengen state must be deported to his or her home country.

Multicultural Brawl in Antwerp

The following report was published earlier at Vlad Tepes in a slightly different form.

(Translation by SimonXML from Het Laatste Nieuws )

VIDEO: Father and son in hospital after a fight at pita bar in Antwerp

Yesterday (12 May 2018) a fight broke outside a pita bar at the Rooseveltplaats in Antwerp. Two men, a father and his son, were sitting on the terrace drinking alcohol but that was not to the liking of the owner, who does not sell alcohol. It turned into a serious fight.

“The manager had approached the men about their behavior and then a scuffle started. It looked like a massive brawl but apparently there were also a lot of bystanders.”

“The two men were taken to hospital for treatment for their injuries. One of them also had a broken leg, so the consequences can be termed serious,” said spokesman Wouter Bruyns.

Politician Filip Dewinter (Vlaams Belang) posted a video of the brawl on Twitter.

[Ed: it is nearly impossible to find this video on YouTube by searching for component terms. More evidence that Alphabet/Google/YouTube is trying to make sure people use right think by only allowing people to see material that goes against the globalist/Islamic narrative if they know exactly what the title is. If you search for component terms, you typically get material showing the opposite scenarios, or ones which force the left-narrative.]

[This makes a nice contrast with a story from last month about some muslims that brought their own booze to a Czech restaurant, were politely asked not to bring and drink their own liquor at a private restaurant, and then proceeded to beat the waiter into a coma from which he may never recover. So the rule, should one choose to extrapolate one, is that when it comes to anything, whatever the muslim does is the right thing. Infidel drinking? results in a beating. Infidel asking muslims not to drink where illegal or inappropriate? Results in a beating.]

Khamzat Azimov’s Martyrdom Video

Yesterday a “Frenchman” named Khamzat Azimov went on a rampage with a knife in central Paris, killing one person and wounding four others before being shot dead by police. Mr. Azimov was a French citizen who was born in Chechnya.

Witnesses reported that as he attacked people, the murderer shouted “Allahu Akhbar”, which is Arabic for “I am poor, bitter, disadvantaged, discriminated against, and alienated from French society”*.

SITE Intelligence Group obtained a copy of Khamzat Azimov’s martyrdom video. In the clip, as you will see, the young man rambles aimlessly, mixing bizarre statements in French with an incomprehensible foreign language. He makes references to a supernatural being that does not exist. This recording supports the hypothesis that Mr. Azimov was confused, delusional, and mentally disturbed, and chose his victims totally at random.

Dr. László Szabó: Immigration and the Preservation of European Culture

Further update: Now the video is working again. Which is weird, because it disappeared from the channel for about 20 minutes or so. Anyway, you should be able to watch it now.

Update: It seems that the Westminster Institute has pulled this video off their channel for some reason. I watched it a little while ago, but now it’s missing. I don’t know what happened.

As I reported earlier tonight, on Wednesday Dr. László Szabó, the Hungarian ambassador to the United States, spoke at the Westminster Institute in McLean, Virginia. His talk is now available on video, including the Q&A section at the end. The whole thing is worth listening to:

The most interesting fact that I learned from his remarks is that all the migrants who took the Balkan Route during the Great Migration Crisis of 2015 stopped in at certain bank in Belgrade to pick up an instruction leaflet (#1 on the list presumably being “throw away your passport”), a cell phone, and €5,000 in cash — at least until the money ran out. So that’s where all those €500 notes came from that the “Syrians” were spending that September in Nickelsdorf after they crossed from Hungary to Austria.

The question that we should all ponder is: Who put that money in the bank for those poor destitute “refugees” to claim? I agree with CrossWare — her opinion is that George Soros wasn’t spending his own money on the migration caper; he was simply acting as the distributor of the funds. That is, someone used his NGOs as a conduit, and he undoubtedly managed to turn a profit on the deal. I’m sure we can all make some educated guesses about who the ultimate benefactor was.

Ihsas Khan: “To kill and be killed… Discharging my obligation to jihad”

A young “Australian” culture-enricher named Ihsas Khan is on trial in Sydney for attempting to murder his neighbor with a hunting knife back in 2016. The following video from Channel 7 is unusual in that it lays out all the facts about Ihsas Khan: he intended to slaughter his victim in order to discharge his obligation to wage jihad against the infidel.

Mr. Khan has pleaded not guilty due to insanity. It will be interesting to see how well that works for him.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this video:

Below are excerpts from an article about the case from ABC News (Australia):

Terror attack accused Ihsas Khan compares stabbing Sydney neighbour to ‘eating a Picnic bar’

The man on trial for the attempted murder of his neighbour in the Sydney suburb of Minto compared stabbing the man to like eating a chocolate bar, a Sydney court heard on Wednesday.

Ihsas Khan, 22, was charged with committing a terrorist act with the intent to influence the Australian Government and attempted murder for stabbing Wayne Greenhalgh with a hunting knife on September 10, 2016.

Mr Khan has pleaded not guilty on the grounds of mental illness.

The court was shown a police interview of Mr Khan.

During an interview with a detective, Mr Khan said he felt nothing about stabbing Mr Greenhalgh.

“How do you feel about eating a Picnic bar? You don’t really think about it,” he said.

The detective asked him whether he regretted what he did.

“No, not at all,” Mr Khan replied.

“This person you stabbed today, if he died how would that make you feel?” the detective asked.

“Nothing,” Mr Khan replied.

“Can you tell me why you’re here?” the detective asked.

“I tried to slaughter a guy,” Mr Khan replied.

The French are furious at Donald Trump’s remarks about the Bataclan. But what did the president actually say?

Last Friday President Donald Trump gave a speech at a National Rifle Association (NRA) event in Texas. Among other things, Mr. Trump described how differently things would have gone at the Bataclan restaurant — where Islamic terrorists massacred hundreds of people back in 2015 — if even one person at the event had been packing heat.

The French political elites — including all the talking heads on TV — were united in their sanctimonious outrage at the effrontery of the American president for saying such things. They demanded a public apology.

We hear from our French contacts that although French TV was filled with the fury of the bien-pensants, what Mr. Trump actually said last Friday was scrupulously omitted — the viewer just saw stills or silent footage of the president at the NRA.

So Vlad had a bright idea: subtitle the original footage of President Trump in French, as a public service. Then the French people can actually read and see what all the outrage is about.

Many thanks to Ava Lon (French to English) and Nathalie (English to French) for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Here’s an objective, unbiased (ahem) account of the brouhaha from CNN:

Trump angers France and Britain with his NRA speech

(CNN) US President Donald Trump took aim at two of America’s closest allies in a speech at the NRA convention, saying strict gun laws failed to prevent the 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris and highlighting a purported increase in knife violence in London.

The comments provoked anger in both France and Britain.

France was especially incensed after Trump, while speaking at the gun rights convention in Dallas on Friday, pointed his hand as if it were a gun while describing how each of the victims in Paris was fatally shot.

“They took their time and gunned them down one by one — boom, come over here, boom, come over here, boom,” he said.

The French foreign ministry issued a statement Saturday after Trump’s comments.

“France expresses its firm disapproval of President Trump’s remarks … and calls for the respect of the memory of the victims,” it said.

Francois Hollande, who was the French President during the 2015 attacks, tweeted Saturday:

“Donald Trump’s shameful remarks and obscene histrionics say a lot about what he thinks of France and its values. The friendship between our two peoples will not be tainted by disrespect and excessiveness. All my thoughts go to the victims of November 13.”

Trump went on to say things might have been different had Parisians in the cafes under attack had been armed.

“If one employee or just one patron had a gun, or if one person in this room had been there with a gun, aimed at the opposite direction, the terrorists would have fled or been shot. And it would have been a whole different story,” Trump said.

Nothing to Worry About, Folks

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends this report on last week’s unfortunate knife attack in the Hague by a mentally challenged man. Needless to say, the incident had nothing to do with Islam.

Nothing to worry about, folks

by H. Numan

Friday was Liberation Day in The Netherlands. The Dutch celebrated their liberation from German occupation in World War Two. A “disturbed” man thought it would be a good idea to celebrate it by slashing throats. Nothing to worry about, folks. He’s not a jihadi, but merely a disturbed person. From Syria. Where he fought for ISIS. Who’s here on refugee status. No idea about the injuries of the victims, as no media thought to write about them. None. Not important — the disturbed man is the Real Victim©; the victims provoked him (by being alive and non-mohammedan). The police had to shoot and taser (in which order they did that I don’t know) this friendly man before they could subdue him.

No reason to inquire if this guy was somewhat overzealous preaching the da’wa. Mayor Krikke already knows he is simply a disturbed person. Why? Apparently he tossed his own furniture out of his house in February. Sane people don’t do that; therefore he must be disturbed. What else can you conclude? You must be a virulent islamophobe if you think this guy is practicing his religion.

Amsterdam is the capital of The Netherlands, but The Hague is the seat of government. Methinks a knife attack in the seat of government is pretty serious. So does the mayor, as she ordered the Rijksrecherche (sort of police to police the police) to immediately investigate the fact that the police had shot this man. Wounded, admittedly. But nevertheless they used their weapons! We can’t have that, can we? What about the “disturbed” man? Yes, she ordered an investigation of him as well. A psychiatric investigation. And she ordered a committee to look into his mental state.

As you can see, the situation is completely under control. Nothing to worry about.

Or perhaps we should worry? What I read on other than mainstream or government-approved media (in Holland that is the same) is that this gentlemen was fully under control of himself. He knew what he was doing, that being the slicing of throats of infidels. Nope, nothing to worry. Because it’s not mainstream media, therefore it must be fake news. Can’t be anything else.

Some other news you don’t have to worry about. The province of Frisia wants to make it compulsory for primary schoolchildren to visit mosques. Of course mohammedans came up with this brilliant idea, but the provincial government kind of likes it too. All in the name of community cohesion, understanding other cultures and whatnot. What I strangely miss is a compulsory visit of mohammedan children to churches and synagogues. But then, mohammedans take their religion — of peace — a lot more seriously than Christians and Jews. Because those religions explicitly forbid entering heathen temples as well. It’s just that nobody seems to care anymore.

The Dutch ministry of defense, officially, likes community cohesion too. Participating in an iftar meal is professional, they say. Which means if you do not want to participate, you’re not professional. We don’t want unprofessionals in our organization. Out you go, or that least no promotion ever. As you probably can understand, the Islamsterdam municipal police leads the way here.
