The Great Replacement is Right on Schedule

Hellequin GB has translated three articles from PolitikStube about the migrant influx into Europe. The first two concern the activities of one of the “migrant-rescue” vessels, Ocean Viking.

The first article describes the unusual circumstance of a people-trafficker who asked to be returned to Libya:

Ocean Viking collects 10 people — a “rescued (smuggler)” wants to return to Libya

The Ocean Viking is cruising again in the search and pick-up zone off the Libyan coast, and found what it was looking for yesterday. According to SOS Méditerranée GER on Twitter, ten people (including two women, three children and a newborn baby) were pulled from a boat 36 nautical miles off the Libyan coast; the action was allegedly coordinated by the local Libyan coast guard, which had requested the support.

A normal “rescue mission”, apart from the cooperation with the Libyan coast guard; what is new, however, is that a “rescued person” wants to be brought back to Libya, so it says in the message from SOS Méditerranée GER on Twitter:

“During the rescue operation, one of the castaways on board the boat expressed the wish to return to Libya. Our crew provided a life jacket for safety and the person was taken on board the patrol boat by the Libyan coast guard.”

“Shipwrecked”, a gallant paraphrase for the smuggler or human trafficker. You just have to come up with stories after the NGO “Save the Children” have already been charged with working with smugglers and German “sea rescuers” with smuggling in Italy.

And the fiberglass boat was probably not directly in “distress”, either; the boat did not take in any water and was in perfect buoyancy.

Alas! High winds came in, so the Ocean Viking was only able to “rescue” 116 migrants and bring them to Italy:

Lockdowns Don’t Apply to the Muslims of Milan

An illegal mosque in Milan is brazenly flouting the “red zone” lockdown rules that non-Muslim citizens are forced to obey. The two videos below concern the reactions of two politicians for the Lega, Matteo Salvini’s party.

The first video features Silvia Sardone, an MEP for the Lega, who has been threatened with rape and death for her opposition to the mosque. Many thanks to HeHa for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The second video features Stefano Pavesi, an advisor for the Lega. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The following article from Il Giornale (translated by Gary Fouse) reports on the controversy over the illegal mosque:

Is this not a red zone…? It is crowded at the illegal mosque

Milan is in the red zone, but in the extreme west periphery, Muslims flock to the mosque. The anger of the Lega

by Francesca Galici
March 19, 2021

All of Lombardy is again in the red zone beginning Monday, 15 March with the resulting consequences.

It is prohibited to leave home if not for a valid, justified reason, which could be for health. The schools are closed, as well as restaurants, bars, and many commercial enterprises. The ban on assemblies is the same for the past year in all of Italy, particularly in red zones. The experts now say that even one meter of distance is not enough to reduce the risk of contagion due to variants, and therefore, it is necessary to at least double the social distance. If, for the most part, the majority respect these directions, there are those who seem to live above the rules, as pointed out by Silvia Sardone, MEP and Lega municipal advisor, and Stefano Pavesi, Lega advisor for Municipality 8.

The two Lega advocates denounced what is happening in Via Sabatino Lopez, on the extreme northwest periphery of Milan, between Bovisasca and Quarto Oggiaro. “Maybe something has escaped us, but Via Lopez is precisely around the illegal mosque inside a former bakery; is it not a red zone like the rest of the city? Judging by the gatherings of Muslims on the sidewalks, it seems not,” noted the two Lega members.

With the images from the outside of the building, the words of the Lega advocates take on more weight. “It is absurd and inconceivable that the municipality doesn’t enforce the laws, in this case, the regional law on religious locations, especially in a pandemic situation that we are going through,” explains Silvia Sardone, who then wonders: “Why are the Muslims free to gather together blatantly violating the anti-Covid regulations while citizens and merchants have to remain home or keep their own locations closed with the evident social and economic damages?”

In the Milan community, the question is long-standing, especially that which concerns illegal mosques. It is impossible to censor them all, especially when the police intervene to close one, another quickly opens. But Silvia Sardone isn’t giving up and continues to make decisive and timely inquiries to Mayor Beppe Sala: “This mosque is illegal and should be closed. Mayor Sala, make yourself heard, send the local police to make an inspection, and then proceed accordingly. To begin with, it would be enough to intervene on Friday, the day of prayer, to punish all those who don’t respect the rules, beginning with social distance.”

Stefano Pavesi is strongly committed to combating a possible violation but, “the municipality of Milan and Municipality 8 led by the PD (Partito Democratico) are sound asleep”. Numerous reports have already been sent in on the situation on Via Lopez, “but in return, we have received total silence, a sign of an evident lack of political will to resolve the problems raised.” The outermost areas of Milan are always alone, almost forgotten by the central administration. Stefano Pavese, however, has promised his community his maximum commitment for a resolution: “We will go forward to maintain high attention, at the side of citizens exasperated by this situation. Enough with “two weights and two measures” [different rules for different people]. The people of Milan cannot always be penalized in respect to the foreigners.”

The Camp of the Sane and The Camp of the Saints — A Book Review

Long-time readers will remember Max Denken, who contributed a number of essays here several years ago. Mr. Denken retired from the scene to write books about our civilizational crisis. Fjordman has kindly reviewed the first one for Gates of Vienna readers.

The Camp of the Sane and The Camp of the Saints — A Book Review

by Fjordman

It is not every day that you come across a book dedicated to the continued survival of an entire civilization. Yet the author Max Denken has written just such a text. He has previously written under the pen name Takuan Seiyo for dissident online publications such as Gates of Vienna, The Brussels Journal, The New English Review, Quarterly Review, Takimag and others. His well-written and carefully researched book about the future of European civilization is called The Camp of the Sane and The Camp of the Saints: Poland and the erosion of Western sanity, 2015—2020.

The title is a reference to The Camp of the Saints (“Le Camp des Saints”), a novel from 1973 by the French author Jean Raspail. It predicted a Third World mass invasion of Europe, causing the downfall of Western civilization. This process was compressed in time so that what might take fifty years in real life took fifty days in the book. In addition, the bulk of illegal immigrants in the novel came from India. Today, while immigration to Europe comes from every corner of the planet, much of it comes from the Islamic world and Africa.

Apart from that, the novel was remarkably prescient in describing the dysfunctional mindset of the modern Western world. We have become so wedded to unsustainable humanitarian ideals that we are mentally incapable of defending our national existence. When faced with millions of people coming from the global South, we simply raise a white flag and say that they are welcome to colonize our countries. At least, that is what our leaders and mass media do. The EU and Pope Francis react to illegal mass migration in the Mediterranean in almost exactly the manner described in Raspail’s book decades earlier. Europe risks committing suicide because of abstract humanitarian ideals and a Globalist ideology of open borders.

Jean Raspail died in June 2020, shortly before he would have turned 95. He lived to see his native France and other Western countries being partly overrun by migrants. Max Denken completed The Camp of the Sane in the summer of 2020, just as the author of The Camp of the Saints died. Western cities were then engulfed in Black Lives Matter protests, attacks on statues and European monuments and sometimes violent riots. Western mass media presented U.S. President Trump as an extremely evil man, as they had been doing continuously for five years. Some Western media said more positive things about the Communist dictator Fidel Castro when he died in November 2016 than they said about Donald Trump when he won free elections that some month.

Max Denken has Polish ancestry, has lived in California for many years and worked in other parts of the world. He considers the entire Western world to be deeply sick and heading for some form of collapse. This applies to North America as well as Western Europe. Against this crumbling Camp of the Saints, Denken pits what he terms The Camp of the Sane. Roughly speaking, this encompasses much of the eastern half of Europe, or at least the eastern quarter. Ironically, these are countries that were squeezed and bloodied between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union during the Second World War and endured generations of repressive Communist rule during the Cold War. Perhaps their recent historical experiences have provided these nations with a stronger resistance against ideological indoctrination.

Western Europe still has some brave political leaders such as Geert Wilders, Marine Le Pen and Matteo Salvini, but they may have emerged too late to save their countries from collapse. The Western world and what remains of its civilization are in freefall. Denken does not rule out the possibility that something sensible can be created in North America out of the disunited Multicultural mess that is present-day USA and Canada. However, he believes that the best future prospects for European civilization lie in Central and Eastern Europe.

The countries of Central and Eastern Europe no doubt believed that they had joined a sensible project for European cooperation and joint prosperity when they joined the EU. Some of them have come to realize that the increasingly repressive EU now resembles a cultural suicide pact. Money from the EU may seem tempting to nations that were left impoverished after decades of Communist rule. Yet these are silver coins laced with ideological poison. For 1400 years, the forces of Islam have been the collective enemy of the peoples of Europe. Now, the EU wants to force formerly independent European countries to take in Muslim immigrants.

Spare No Expense to House the Culture-Enrichers

The following report discusses the exorbitant price tag for refugee housing in Berlin. Compare the figures with the construction cost for residential housing in Manhattan, which is roughly $3,300 per square meter. That’s somewhat more than the amounts given below for Berlin, but bear in mind that those German asylum units are modular or prefab — essentially shipping containers.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:

Unbelievable: Asylum accommodation in Berlin costs over €1,600 [$1,900] PER SQUARE METER!

While the mask affair is spreading, the capital ruled by red-red-green has a new mega construction scandal: Almost 50 “modular accommodations for refugees” (MUF) devour a total of more than a billion euros in construction and other costs ! According to the Senate, the production costs an incredible €1,600 to €2,600 [$3,100] per square meter — completely oversized and dubious costs for simple prefabricated buildings. With the monthly salary of a German taxpayer, one square meter of living space is created for people who for the most part are not even allowed to be here.

But the project is also legally questionable: “We have never experienced such a brazen abuse of special building rights as in Berlin in all of Germany,” says a lawyer. Meanwhile, there is even speculation about a demolition, because the accommodations are only allowed to be inhabited by asylum seekers and Berlin wants to transfer them to the regular housing market.

A Fear of Being Cast Out

The following story describes the dilemma of a Turkish-Dutch girl who wrote a book denouncing her strict Islamic upbringing, and then decided to quit writing after the resulting outcry. Gary Fouse, who translated the piece, says:

This Dutch article is getting a lot of attention. A Turkish-Dutch girl named Lale Gül has published a book on how bad it was being raised in a Turkish Muslim family.

The translated article from the Dutch daily De Volkskrant:

Lale Gül wrote a book about her strict Islamic upbringing and was denounced: “I was called a nest befouler”

With her debut novel I am going to live, Lale Gül gave a glimpse into the Islamic community in which she grew up. After publication, the community turned against her. Now Gül is putting her pen down out of fear of being cast out.

by Ashwant Nandrum
February 25, 2021

Two weeks after the appearance of her book, Lale Gül has to acknowledge that she has been naïve. She had planned to write a story based on her own life. A book about an Amsterdam girl who breaks free from the grip of a strict Islamic community. She was not afraid of causing a stir at home. Her parents speak broken Dutch: They wouldn’t understand anything from the book. And if, unexpectedly, they heard about it, Gül would claim that she had made it up. It was just a novel.

That plan has failed miserably. The day after she appeared on the talk show Op1 the Gül family phone was glowing red. Family members, acquaintances, even strangers were inquiring. The book would bring shame to the community. “With hands shaking, my father spoke with everyone. At home, I said that I had written a love story. But with every telephone call, my father got a better picture of what was really in the book. He said, ‘Child, what you have done is put our entire family life out on the street.’”

The book entitled I am going to live reads like a long tirade by the principal character. Her parents don’t allow her to listen to music or watch movies with kissing. No wearing of jewelry or makeup, and no taking of selfies. No birthday celebrations and certainly no going out. Not on school trips, nor vacations without a male family member. Friendships with boys are inappropriate, let alone having a boyfriend.

While the main character feels the need to live that way. She asks herself in the book what she is supposed to do with the desires. “Do I have to live like a house plant? Do I have to immediately enter into a marriage where all sex is set out before it has begun because my creators have chosen a completely humorless, Koran-bound a**hole for me? Is God happy with my tragedy?”

The book offers a staggeringly honest look into Gül’s life experience. Fights between mother and daughter are described in detail. Unvarnished descriptions of how the main character has secret sex with her Dutch boyfriend alternate with reflections on Islam. Her parents are disdainfully called “creators”, the mother is nicknamed, “Carbuncle the Cockroach” and “Islamo-fascist despot.”

The poisonous tone was not originally the aim, says Gül. “The plan was to describe the events as factually as possible and leave the judgment to the reader. But during the time of the writing, I became angry with my parents again. Then I decided: Let the reader taste the anger.”

Vignettes From the Euro-Caliphate

The formation of the European Caliphate is accelerating.

In the first video below, you’ll hear an imam from Hizb ut-Tahrir demonstrate that he is well aware of the larger process that is underway in Europe, while most Europeans remain utterly clueless about it. “Majal areas” — regions where the laws of the kuffar do not hold sway, where the sharia is enforced — are forming in major cities throughout Western Europe and the UK.

It should be noted that criminal clans (as exemplified by the ones in Berlin described below) play an integral role in the formation of the Caliphate. The Caliph, who is basically the most powerful Muslim warlord, sits atop a hierarchal formation. Below him are the wilayahs — provinces or governorates — each of which has its own regional boss. Below these are the clans.

The entire structure is functionally indistinguishable from an organized criminal network such as the Mafia. Anyone or anything outside the structure — i.e. the kafir and his wealth — is fair game. Discipline is shaped by Islamic law, which is brutally enforced within the Caliphate.

The first article features undercover video footage shot in a district of Stockholm in which a leader of Hizb ut-Tahrir can be heard discussing the Islamization of Europe, among other topics.

Hear what it sounds like when radical Islamists recruit in Järva

March 8, 2021

[Caption beneath top video: Hear Hizb ut-Tahrir’s recruiter on plans for a caliphate in Europe.]

In recent times the radical Islamist movement Hizb ut-Tahrir has begun to recruit more actively in the Järva area [of Stockholm]. They organize, among other things, recruitment meetings and religious education in Tensta and Rinkeby [no-go zones in the Stockholm suburbs]. SVT’s reported was able to attend their secret meeting.

During recent weeks SVT’s reporter, under a false identity and with a hidden camera, has had contact with Hizb ut-Tahrir in the neighborhood of Järva, where the party is now trying to recruit some twenty persons.

SVT’s reporter attended educational meetings at the home of one of the leaders and gained access to private “lessons” on how the group sees Islam and where it is claimed that Muslims should be aware that the Western world is planning to attack the Muslim faith.

Calls not to vote in Democratic elections

The hidden camera shows both the group’s anti-Democratic foundation and how one of its leaders spreads conspiracy theories.

[Caption: Here the group’s leader teaches a conspiracy theory that a Jewish/capitalist world movement lies behind women’s liberation for the purpose of earning more money. He tells of a conversation with a Jewish man, “McFeller” Photo: Kovan Alshawish/SVT]

SVT has been in contact with the man whom SVT’s reporter met in Rinkeby, and informed him of the hidden camera. The man has not responded with any comment.

The second article refers to the “Cologne Caliph” and his connections to the Macedonian terrorist Kujtim Fejzulai, who shot five people to death in Vienna on November 2 of last year.

The Food Sucks! Room Service is Slow!

The Canary Islands continue to be a major transshipment point for African migrants trying to make their way to Europe. When they don’t get transported quickly enough, or when the accommodations do not meet up to their expectations, the culture-enrichers tend to get a little testy.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:

From the star hotel to the migrant camp — Tenerife: Violent protests over the poor quality of the food

The Canary Islands are increasingly developing into an escape route for illegal migrants from Africa and are recording dramatic arrival figures. The mood in Tenerife is accordingly heated, not only among the islanders, but also among the illegal migrants, as the transfer to the mainland and the onward journey to the destination country did not take place as planned and they are now stuck in the warehouse.

But the frustration does not only affect being stuck on the island: After arrival, thousands of illegals were accommodated in hotels, some of them 4-star hotels, and now many adventurers have had to leave the paradisiacal accommodations and move to reception camps. Not only are the days of well-equipped apartments and hotel rooms over, apparently also those of the buffets, because the food in the migrant camp is of poor quality and triggers conflicts in the dining room…

Brutal confrontation last Saturday afternoon between a group of immigrants, who were temporarily housed in hotels in Maspalomas and Mogán, in the Las Raíces detention center, and the security guards at the center, who had to seek help from the local and national police afterwards the tension inside had increased due to protests from inmates about the shortage and poor quality of the food. The police arrested seven people in the clashes.

The protests turned violent, and the NGO Accem, which manages the facilities, had to alert the authorities to send reinforcements to control the situation after a confrontation broke out between migrants and the centre’s security guards.

The coexistence in Las Raíces between the different groups of migrants becomes more and more complicated as the weeks go by, as the different nationalities mix in the center with the people who gradually arrive.

BLM Riot in Liège

In the Belgian city of Liège (Flemish Luik, Walloon Lidje), over-excited “youths” from Black Lives Matter became upset, and expressed their political dissatisfaction by destroying businesses and throwing stones and large objects at the police.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

Below is the accompanying article about the riot in Liège, also translated by FouseSquawk:

Riot in Liège: 200 youths plunder shops and pelt police

About 200 participants in a Black Lives Matter demonstration this afternoon sought confrontations with police in various locations in Liège. They plundered a fast food restaurant. That is reported by the local police. At least 2 officers were injured, and the police station was pelted.

Several hundred people set off in small groups to the city center of Liège with “the intention of causing damage”, according to the police. One officer on a bicycle was attacked by demonstrators on Saint-Lambert Square. Another agent suffered an injury at Saint-Lambert Gallery. A McDonald’s fast-food restaurant on Republic of France Square was looted.

The police came in to the scene large numbers with a water cannon. Around 4pm the police station was also pelted with stones, as well as several police vehicles. According to the police, it involved youths who consciously sought confrontation and moved “fast and in groups.”

At about 4:30pm the atmosphere was still grim. The police were present en masse at Saint-Lambert Square, where some 50 youths had gathered at the TEC bus stop. Residents were asked not to go into the city center. The Liège mayor sent local businessmen a report via BE-alert asking them to close the stores.

Tonight, calm gradually returned to the city center. The number of officers also decreased in the city. The Liège police said that a Black Lives Matter protest was effectively planned for Saturday afternoon. The reason was a forceful arrest of a woman Monday morning on the Saint-Lambert Square in Liège.

“Islam is for War…”

On Friday a young “Briton” named Sahayb Abu was convicted of planning a terrorist attack in the UK. Michael Copeland has provided the context to show that Mr. Abu’s intended actions were mandated by Islamic law.

“Islam is for War…”

by Michael Copeland

“Islam is for war, hostage-taking, killing infidels, fighting tyranny, taking war booty, taking women of the enemy as concubines.”

So wrote 27-year-old Sahayb Abu online. “After being released from prison in March of last year, he frequently accessed IS propaganda and used various social media platforms to boast about his violent beliefs. Evidence gathered by police showed family members justifying crime against “kuffar” (unbelievers), for the purpose of jihad,” wrote Breitbart.

Sahayb has now been found guilty of planning a terrorist attack in Britain. His statement, quoted above, and the matter of “justifying crime against ‘kuffar’ (unbelievers) for the purpose of jihad”, deserve to be examined.

There is an unstated assumption, stemming from the standard dogma, that lies behind press reports such as this. This is that Islam is a religion of peace which has been “twisted” and “perverted” by people who have misunderstood it. The defendant’s statement is held out as a sort of proof of how wrong he is with his “violent beliefs”. It is this assumption, however, which is gravely in error. Each element of Sahayb’s statement is very much part of Islamic teaching, as can easily be shown.

War

Islam divides the world into two parts, Dar al Islam, the Realm of Islam under Islamic rule, and the rest of the world, not under Islamic rule, Dar al Harb, the Realm of War. “Britain has always been Dar al Harb”, Anjem Choudary told BBC Newsnight. In Dar al Harb every Muslim has the duty to perform jihad, “warfare to establish the religion”, which is a “communal obligation” (Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, o9.0, o9.1). So, indeed, “Islam is for war” in Britain. Jihad is taught at Al Azhar in Cairo as “a permanent war institution”.

Hostage-taking

The Koran (9:5) authorises hostage-taking of kafirs because they are kafirs: “Seize them, confine them,” it commands. The Koran — all of it — forms part of Islamic law. Denying any verse makes a person instantly no longer a Muslim, but an apostate who has to be killed (Manual o8.1). Hostages can be ransomed: Koran 47:4 specifies “either [confer] favor afterwards or ransom [them].”

Killing infidels

“Kill them wherever you find them”, commands Koran 2:191, and 9:5. Islam’s instructions are ruthless. There is no penalty in Islam for killing an infidel in jihad. Far from it: it earns good points towards Paradise. “The life of an unbeliever has no value,” says Omar Bakri.

Fighting tyranny

Muslims are commanded over and over again to “fight” kafirs, fight to kill. The word “tyranny” requires a special translation. Tyranny in Islam is any political system that stands in the way of Sharia, Islamic law. Western democracy, to Islam, is “tyranny”.

Taking war booty

A whole chapter of the Koran is entitled “Spoils of War”. Mohammed’s followers were not paid. Their motivation was a share of the booty from the raids that he made. The Islamic State explained, after the Brussels bombings of 2016,

“Allah also has made the blood of every kafir legal to spill, and …their wealth halal to take”.

Taking women of the enemy as concubines

Dabiq magazine (ISIS), confirmed in October 2014:

Kauthar Bouchallikht and the Muslim Brotherhood

The article below is a follow-up to previous reports on the Muslim Brotherhood in the Netherlands. It provides additional information about Kauthar Bouchallikht, a Muslim candidate for the Green-Left (GroenLinks) party. The piece is from the Dagelijkse Standaard, but it is based on an article by Carel Brendel, a freelance journalist-investigator of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translation:

Green-Left Kauthar Bouchallikht again under fire: “Took media training with the Muslim Brothers”

[Photo caption: Kauthar Bouchallikht at the announcement of the GL election list]

While Jesse Klaver [leader of Green-Left] and the Green-Left Party continue to firmly deny that candidate-MP Kauthar Bouchallikht belonged to an unsavory club, more trash is found. The Green-Left- and radical-tracker Carel Brendel has come up with another remarkable discovery: Bouchallikht attended several media training sessions of a club that is connected to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Once again Green-Left seems to want to burn its fingers with the not-so-clean background of Kauthar Bouchallikht, number 9 on the party’s candidate list. The journalist Carel Brendel has found new evidence that her old club FEMSYO and her past are a lot grimmer than she herself argues.

Specifically, Bouchallikht has in the past attended media training with an organization that is connected to the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood. The organization Sinan Wren Foundation is managed by people from the Muslim Brotherhood. And thus, new evidence is found that FEMSYO is really not the club that Green-Left thought it was.

On social media and through the Green-Left, Bouchallikht continues to be put forward as a brave climate rebel, but her past with an extremist Islamist umbrella group, FEMSYO, remains controversial. Only the top of the party has a gigantic plate on their head and they swear that criticism of the woman is racism, or hatred of women, or Islamophobia. Brendel then asks the following question:

“All in all, Bouchallikht was more active in the youth movement of the Muslim Brotherhood than previously thought. It remains a puzzle that — even though she grew up in this environment — as vice-chairwoman of FEMSYO, she never noticed any of their involvement. Growing up in this circle, of course, doesn’t mean that one is a prisoner of certain beliefs, but thus far the voter has not learned how she has freed herself. The most important questions in this case, moreover, are not about her, but about Jesse Klaver and the party leadership of Green-Left. Why isn’t FEMSYO in her party biography? Has Green-Left investigated what FEMSYO stands for? Why did Green-Left blindly take the FEMSYO position that it is all the fault of extreme-right bloggers?”

Geert Wilders: Immigration, Integration, the Budget, the Climate, and Other Election Topics

On Wednesday Dutch voters will go to the polls to cast their votes for members of the Tweede Kamer, the lower house of Parliament. For the last two months the Dutch populace has been afflicted with a COVID curfew, and according to this AP article, the Wuhan Coronavirus will be the single most important issue in the election.

Up until the Coronamadness hit, however, immigration was the main topic. Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV), is the candidate with the consistently strongest position against mass immigration into the Netherlands.

The following seven videos are a selection of recent debates and interviews featuring Geert Wilders. Many thanks to C for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling.

Jimmie Åkesson: Sweden Needs a Zero-Vision Policy for Asylum Immigration

As reported several times previously (most recently here), last week an Afghan culture-enricher went on a stabbing rampage in the Swedish town of Vetlanda. After being criticized for his immigration policies by Sverigedemokraterna (the Sweden Democrats), Prime Minister Stefan Löfven announced that the attack by an Afghan immigrant — who has a criminal record and has yet to be deported — has nothing to do with immigration.

Jimmie Åkesson, the leader of the Sweden Democrats, responded to Mr. Löfven’s assertion with some pointed remarks.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Nyheter Idag. The translator notes that the idiom “he is out cycling” is roughly equivalent to “he’s out to lunch”:

Åkesson after Löfven’s statement on Vetlanda: “He is out cycling”

Prime Minister Stefan Löfven (Social Democrats) does not consider the attacks in Vetlanda, where the Afghan migrant Tamim Sultani is suspected of seven counts of attempted murder, to be a migration issue. Now the Sweden Democrats’ party leader, Jimmie Åkesson, comments: “I think that he is out cycling,” says Åkesson to Nyheter Idag, and raises the question of a zero-vision asylum immigration.

On Thursday, Stefan Löfven held a press conference about the attacks in Vetlanda on Wednesday. Detention was requested on Thursday for the 22-year-old Afghan migrant suspected of seven counts of attempted murder. Several of the victims received life-threatening injuries. Since November, Sultani has been without a valid residency permit and is in Sweden waiting for a decision on his request for an extension.

During the press conference, Stefan Löfven said the attacks in Vetlanda “are not a migration issue.”

Nyheter Idag contacted SD’s party leader Jimmie Åkesson for a comment.

“That Stefan Löfven sees no negative consequences from lax migration policy is precisely a migration issue, which somewhat puzzles me. Are there any voters who believe that talk? I think he is out cycling, but at the same time, it is good that the prime minister openly says that an Afghan suspected violator who happens not to have a residency permit “is not a migration issue”. This demonstrates with the desired clarity his and his party’s weak leadership and lack of insight on cause and effect,” says Åkesson.

“Not only does Sweden need to stop creating social misery, exclusion, and parallel societies by adopting a zero-vision for asylum immigration and ambitious targets for return, it is necessary for great efforts in criminal policy. There is often an interaction between failed criminal-migration policies that is the cause. If we now take the current case as a starting point, it is, frankly speaking, scandalous that the suspected perpetrator was even in Sweden given that he had earlier committed crimes and was long known to the police.”

What do you say to those who think that people are “politicizing” a tragic event?

“To criticize tragic consequences of a bad and destructive policy and come up with working solutions to the problem is one of the main duties for opposition politicians; I really don’t understand the critics.”

Klaus Kinzler, Racist and Islamophobe

Klaus Kinzler is a German professor who has been teaching for 25 years at “Sciences Po” in the French city of Grenoble. A couple of weeks ago he and another teacher were called “fascists” and accused of “Islamophobia” by posters that were put up anonymously on campus. Among other things, the posters said “Islamophobia kills”, which was seen as a potential threat. Since then the Minister of the Interior has put Prof. Kinzler under protection.

The earliest news stories did not mention the names of the targeted professors, but Klaus Kinzler has since gone public on the issue. The following video was originally two separate clips taken from a TV talk show featuring Prof. Kinzler.

Come to Germany and Start a New Life on Welfare

Despite its longstanding reputation for technical excellence, Germany is no longer a magnet for foreign scientists and engineers. However, it’s Europe’s go-to place for lavish welfare benefits, as the mass influx of unskilled third-worlders attests.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:

Eldorado only for the unqualified and paperless: Germany is becoming less attractive to the highly qualified

The German economy is urgently dependent on “qualified specialists” from abroad, while at the same time well-trained specialists are leaving Germany and migrating abroad, and on top of that, paperless and predominantly male unskilled workers from incompatible cultures flow to Germany, who are sold to the citizens as specialists, but who are more likely to immigrate to the welfare programs

Years ago, the management consultancy Boston Consulting Group (BCG), the online job platform StepStone and the career network The Network started a large-scale survey to determine the attractiveness that a nation radiates to qualified employees on an international level: Germany ranks fourth, after the USA, Canada and Australia.
