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 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.

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

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”.

Islam: A Permanent War Institution

Michael Copeland’s latest compilation affirms the inherently warlike nature of Islamic ideology.

Preparing for the Boogaloo

In his latest guest-post, Matt Bracken reviews “Civil Defense Manual”, which has been linked on Gates of Vienna’s sidebar for the last few weeks.

The Civil Defense Manual, by Jack Lawson:
How to Prepare and Protect Your Neighborhood from Disaster, Riot and Civil Unrest

A review by Matt Bracken
October 14, 2020

If you are reading this, chances are good that you consider yourself a liberty-loving patriotic American. You might also consider yourself, as I certainly do, a “prepper,” that is, an all-around survival and preparedness advocate. As preppers, we’ve long been anticipating crises ranging from financial collapse, to violent insurrection, to natural or even man-made disasters that could extinguish our electrical grid in a flash. Now, deep into 2020, the year of the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic and widespread Marxist-inspired riots, it appears that we may at last be on the doorstep of the long-anticipated SHTF scenario. Revolutionary Communists, (currently wearing the Antifa and BLM brands, and with the tacit support of today’s far-left Democrat Party), have declared that under no circumstances will they accept a Trump election victory. Instead, they promise to take their revolution to the streets, in violent nationwide riots beyond any yet seen in American history.

Across the political spectrum, the number of Americans who believe that a second Civil War is imminent is at an all-time high. This heightened concern is why, for example, it costs three to four times more to rent a truck to move household goods from a liberal to a conservative state than vice versa. This is also why common rifle and pistol ammunition is at unprecedented scarcity, and when it can be found, it can only be purchased at exorbitant cost. A hundred rounds of standard 5.56, .308 or 7.62X39 rifle ammo can easily fit into your jacket pocket, and today they might cost you a hundred dollars — a buck a bullet — if you can find them. The reason for their shortage at this moment in history is that millions of Americans have come to the bitter realization that they might actually need them to defend their lives, families and property.

By comparison to the extra cartridges, what value would you place on obtaining the equivalent of a master’s degree in surviving through a period of violent insurrection, or even civil war? I’d imagine much more than the hundred or so dollars you might spend for a similar number of extra rounds for your rifle or carbine.

So, what is it about Jack Lawson’s Civil Defense Manual that makes it so valuable? First of all, it’s nearly a thousand pages long, making it too big to fit inside one book cover. Instead, it’s broken into two volumes that are sold as a set. And the two volumes are large in size, measuring 11 X 8.5 inches, typeset in a generous 14-point font. In the end, the CDM is meant to be readable even by candlelight, post SHTF. And it’s written so that ordinary people can understand it, completely free of esoteric military or technical jargon, with key sentences bolded to stand out.

The CDM is not just another long list of expensive survival gear and equipment, nor is it advice to move to a remote mountain in Montana. The CDM is much more practical than that. In fact, Lawson’s most essential idea, the Neighborhood Protection Plan, or NPP, can be adapted to any location and situation, from the urban high-rise, to apartment complexes, to single-family homes in the suburbs, and to rural areas. The critical concept behind the NPP is that the inhabitants of an individual home, townhouse or apartment building cannot stand alone and successfully defend themselves against determined attacks by roving gangs of armed predatory thugs. It will be too late to defend your single domicile when your neighbors’ homes are going up in flames.

A Neighborhood Protection Plan is not a glorified Neighborhood Watch, which is a passive arrangement whereby neighbors communicate with existing local Law Enforcement. Nor is an NPP a “militia” or any other kind of independent paramilitary force. In the first case, the activation of an NPP is predicated upon the inability or even the unwillingness of local LE to protect a neighborhood or other area during a crisis. In the second case, forming a militia or other paramilitary force implies that this group is planning to undertake proactive operations extending beyond the defense of a neighborhood and its immediate surrounding area. The Civil Defense Manual does cover the entire range of defensive options from existing Neighborhood Watch programs, through Neighborhood Protection Plans, and ultimately to coordination between separate NPPs for the mutual protection of wider regions, with the ultimate goal of restoring pre-SHTF civility, public safety, and restarting any disrupted infrastructure.

Lawson provides a sample command structure for his NPP concept, as well as methods to organize the NPP well in advance of a catastrophic series of events that might require a self-defense force to be stood up in days or even hours, instead of in weeks.

In the author’s vision, the elected Primary Leader of the local NPP is given overall command authority during emergency situations, but tellingly, the Secondary NPP Leader in Lawson’s suggested hierarchy is also the Fire Chief. During a breakdown of civil order, and the collapse of local infrastructure, when existing fire departments might be unable to respond, the protection of homes within the NPP against the risk of fire becomes second in importance only to protection against armed gangs, gangs which might be using Molotov cocktail firebombs as terror weapons to elicit surrender. It should also be recognized that during a period when the normal infrastructure might be disrupted, and running water and electricity are unavailable, the threat to structures from open-flame cooking and heating fires, and even candles, will be extremely high.

The Rockets’ Red Glare Over Champigny-sur-Marne

Champigny-sur-Marne is a suburb of Paris about eight miles southeast of the center of the city. Last Saturday night a group of rambunctious culture-enriching “youths” got a little frisky and attacked the police station in Champigny with iron bars and major fireworks. I saw a couple of startling videos of the night’s events, but neglected to hold on to the links.

The following account describes what happened in Champigny on Saturday night. Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from Résistance Républicaine:

Attack on Champigny police station: The jihad is on the rise in France

October 11, 2020

True scenes of jihad in France in the territories conquered by Islam

Here is what happened to the police station of Champigny:

The police station in Champigny-sur-Marne (Val de Marne) was targeted on Saturday night and early Sunday morning by some 40 individuals.

The police station in Champigny-sur-Marne was attacked late at night on Saturday 11 October by some 40 individuals, who struck it with iron bars, according to information from BFMTV. No police officer was injured, but property was damaged.

No injuries

The events occurred shortly before midnight. While two police officers were smoking outside, some 40 individuals attempted to penetrate the station, hitting the glass of the front door with iron bars.

The officers just had time to lock themselves in a secure space [airlock] at the entrance of the building.

These are, indeed, scenes of jihad of Islam, however, still very much a minority on our soil.

Pick-pocketing, harassment of unbelievers, church fires, slaughter of priests, mass murder of unbelievers: All this an Islamic continuum which only the beautiful souls refuse to see.

They shout, these beautiful souls:

“No amalgams!” [“Amalgamate” means to stigmatize Muslims unjustly by associating them with terrorism.]

These collaborators of the Plenel school, who occupy almost the totality of media, and who have created this fantasy of “racist police violence” or “systematic state racism”.

(A state where an enormous part of social assistance goes not only to descendants of immigrants, but to foreigners.)

To the great joy of Muslim invaders.

And judges who roundly condemn those who dare to speak the truth, while showing total complicity with Muslim perversion.

I am not even speaking of the arch-traitor Macron, who persists in obstinately following the policy followed for 40 years, and who is leading us to this catastrophe.

Each day that passes brings France a little closer to enslavement, to a collapse in the face of Islam.

The weekend’s violence in Champigny prompted a nationwide protest by French police on Monday. Below is an excerpt from an RT article about the demonstration in Paris:

Antifas Evicted to Make Room for Culture-Enrichers

Well, it seems that I was wrong last night when I said that the eviction of the Antifas from Liebig 34 in Berlin was a NIMBY issue. According to the tweet below, the anarchists had to be put out on the street so that refugees could be welcomed into the building:

Many thanks to MissPiggy for translating the tweet:

This is the real point of the eviction of Liebig 34: The building owner wants to accommodate “Refugees” in the building. Thanks to the uncontrolled mass migration forced by leftists and “We Have Room” propaganda, this is only logical.

[According to a SPIEGEL article] Padovicz wants to accommodate refugees in the house in the future. It is “the most likely scenario,” says his lawyer Mr. Wrobel. Talks are being held with possible new tenants.

The question now is: Will the anarchists take umbrage at being displaced by culture-enrichers?

Also: If so, will it make them reconsider their long-time advocacy for open borders?

The Eviction of Antifa from Liebig 34

Last Friday the Berlin police evicted a group of Antifa squatters from a building on Liebigstraße in Berlin. The anarchists had been living there illegally for thirty years, but the Powers That Be have only now gotten around to removing them. The reason? The neighborhood has recently been “renovated”, i.e. gentrified, and the municipal authorities had been under pressure to get rid of the undesirables and their eyesore of a building. In other words, it was a typical NIMBY initiative on the part of affluent progressives.

Below are two news videos about the eviction. Notice that all the graffiti on the inner walls of the building seem to be in English. Do the residents not speak German?

Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling. The translator includes this supplemental material:

The end of an era: Tour of the “Liebig 34”

A rare insight: The leftist (Antifa) squat in Berlin-Friedrichshain was tolerated for 30 years. The “residents” did everything to prevent the emergency services from entering the house. According to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the eviction of one of the last symbols of the left-wing extremist scene in Berlin went surprisingly smoothly. The Left Party and the Greens mourn the squatters’ departure from the “unique safe haven”.

At 7:25am the task force from the Berlin police department turned on the chainsaw. The door of the building at the address Liebigstraße 34 could not be opened with an ordinary crowbar. It had been barricaded so that no one could enter. The police announced that they would evict the residents of the house in the Friedrichshain district at 7am sharp. Preparations had been going on for days. A zone was cordoned off around the house, and police officers also took positions on the roofs of surrounding houses. The streets were cleared for heavy equipment. And that’s what was needed. Armored vehicles, a ladder crane and several police vehicles. Everything was used to evict the house of its occupants, and that’s exactly what happened. Since it was impossible to enter the main entrance of the building on the ground floor — even with a chainsaw — the first floor seemed more promising. With the help of scaffolding, the officials entered the building through a window.

The Ascendancy of the InterNazis

The Antifas or “anti-fascists” were all but unknown to Americans until after the election of Donald Trump four years ago. In the fall and winter of 2016-2017 they appeared in “black bloc” gear on the streets of American cities like Minerva bursting full-grown from the head of Zeus. In the ensuing years they have continued to ravage public spaces across the country, and have joined forces with Black Lives Matter to the point that the shock troops of the two groups are all but indistinguishable.

Because I specialize in European issues, I had long been familiar with Antifa (and their closely-related cousins, the Autonomer in Denmark and Unite Against Fascism [UAF] in the UK). Back in 2007 and 2008, when I was first researching the groups, I spent a long time tracking down their websites in various Western countries. The Antifas seemed to have their greatest presence in Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Germany. They were also to be found in other Western European countries, with the exception of Britain, which had the UAF instead.

When I looked for an American franchise of Antifa, I discovered that it was vestigial — there was almost no Antifa presence in the USA. Violent far-left activism was left to other Marxist groups, such as International A.N.S.W.E.R. Antifa per se was virtually non-existent in the USA.

How times have changed!

And they changed suddenly, just after November 8, 2016. Someone turned on the spigots and the money started to flow to the black bloc groups all over the country. The black and red flags on their banners became a familiar sight on television news reports. Their customary paraphernalia — rocks, iron bars, baseball bats, and heavy-duty fireworks — could be seen in videos recorded on the streets of major cities with buildings and vehicles burning in the background.

The same sort of sight had long been familiar in Western Europe. More than twelve years ago El Inglés and our Flemish correspondent VH did extensive research on the European Antifas. Relevant excerpts from two posts, originally published in September and October of 2008, are reproduced below.

From “The InterNazis”, September 26, 2008

The excluded portions of this post were topical to the news of that time, but still make for interesting reading. See the original for the full text.

The term “Nazi” is an abbreviation of the German-language version of the phrase “National Socialist”, and referred to the totalitarian socialist ideology which arose in Germany during the 1920s and 1930s. The modifier “National” was applied to “Socialist” in order to distinguish Hitler’s brand of Socialism from Communism, which was “international Socialism”, as represented by the Comintern and directed by Stalin. The Nazis were very much Socialists, but wanted nothing to do with the vile cosmopolitan Bolshevik version of Socialism, which Hitler considered an alien Jewish ideology, unfit for his vision of the Aryan future.

Nazism was destroyed by the Allies in 1945, and Communism crumbled of its own weight in 1991. But International Socialism did not die. By the 1970s it had spread throughout the institutions of the Free World like a metastasized cancer in the body politic of Western Civilization.

[…]

In 21st-century Europe, InterNazis can be found most frequently in the various chapters of Antifa, also known as Anti-fascist Action (with variants in several languages) or AFA. The affinity of Antifa for the Nazi ideology and iconography can be observed in the logos [above].

The stylized “A” in the middle symbol is a common logo for the Anarchists, of which the Antifas form a particularly virulent branch. The right-hand symbol with its lightning-bolt “A” is from the 1930s. It was used by the Nazis to represent the Sturmabteilung, the Storm Troopers, also known as the Brown Shirts. These were Hitler’s bully-boys, the high-spirited lads who took to the streets to beat up Communists, Jews, free-thinkers, and anyone else considered to be an enemy of the German people.

Is the resemblance of the SA symbol to the Antifa logo a coincidence? I have no idea, but it’s a fitting emblem for the thugs who beat up the Jews and little old ladies who came to Cologne last weekend to protest Islamization.

What bears the most striking resemblance to the methodology of the Storm Troopers is the symbiosis among the Antifa groups, the police, and local officials. The Autonomer are performing an identical function to that of the Sturmabteilung: they carry out illegal political violence on behalf of a totalitarian state which deems itself to be beyond the rule of law.

In this they also closely resemble the Comités de Defensa de la Revolución, the “Committees for the Defense of the Revolution”, a communist institution established in Castro’s Cuba. The Committees are allegedly “spontaneous” manifestations of popular outrage against the enemies of Socialism, and are employed to harass and intimidate any dissidents who dare to question the regime.

Unlike the Storm Troopers of 1930s Germany, the Antifas are international, and represent an ideology that explicitly seeks the destruction of the nation-state and the abolition of national identity. Their mission is to deconstruct the nations of Europe so that Socialist Multiculturalism may be implemented with a minimum of resistance.

Our Flemish correspondent VH has been thinking about these things, and he’s also been doing what I’d like to do, but don’t have time for: researching the European Antifas and all their ideological cousins. He sent me an email yesterday with an overview of the situation, and with his kind permission I am posting it below:

Baron,

I share your interest in the Militant Left. Every now and then I dive into their agitprop, hoping to find a key to echo it back to them, but most of all to their potential recruits: the brainwashed adolescents and the ignorant Leftist enablers of Arabization.

A few notes:

There maybe were no more than a thousand or at most a few thousand counter-demonstrators in Cologne, maybe half of them Blackhoods, the rest ignorant Gutmenschen. They had a schedule; they practiced blockades way in advance, gave AFA training (never give your name!), sabotaged transport, moved around like regiments, used sympathizers in media-sensitive front lines, and only needed a few strategic locations and some pin-pointed violence to achieve the optimal effect.
