Paris: a sixty-year-old who was attacked says he was called “infidel”.

by Céline Carez
November 15, 2018

An investigation has been opened for deliberate violence committed for religious reasons.

He had been Christmas shopping. He was leaving the subway at Alesia station (14th district) and was quietly walking towards Maine Avenue (14th district), holding in his arms a package wrapped in very Christmassy paper. The events took place on Wednesday at 6:20 pm.

A stranger approached and pushed and slapped him, causing his glasses to fall to the ground. The assailant allegedly said to him, before turning around and walking away: “Behold what we do to infidels.”

The sixty-year-old, shocked, went up Maine Avenue towards the 14th district police station in order to file a complaint. An investigation was initiated for deliberate violence committed for religious reasons.

Nicolas Dupont-Aignan: “The Poor President Has Lost His Mind”

Nicolas Dupont-Aignan is a French politician and a member of the National Assembly. In the following video Mr. Dupont-Aignan has the temerity to criticize President Emmanuel “Toy Boy” Macron, and especially the president’s behavior at the recent observances of the centennial of the Armistice.

The Church Militant

Russia has been determined to rebuild its culture after the destructive tyranny of the Soviets.

One way to do that is to restore the martial spirit of its citizens, to drill down to a uniquely Russian esprit de corps. The method chosen here – building a church based on a martial spirit – could be a strong uniting force for ethnic Russians.

Another facet to consider is the pushback against Islam that may flow from the very architecture of this cathedral. It will serve as a large thumb in the eye of every practicing Muslim who gazes upon it, recalling Erdogan’s (in)famous quote regarding Islam:“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers…” Change a few words and voila!, you have Russia’s muscular Christianity.

Remember that Russia is a tertium quid: neither Occident or Orient, it goes its own way. Woebetide those who would interfere. To expect The Bear to act like China or the West is to misunderstand Russia’s worldview.

Islamic Terror Cell Busted in the Netherlands

The following TV news report is not current, but may still be of interest. Dutch News reported at the time (late September):

Dutch Police Arrest Seven Men, Say They Foiled a Major Terrorist Attack

Dutch police said on Thursday evening they believe they have foiled a major terrorist attack in the Netherlands with the arrest of seven men in Arnhem and Weert. The men range in age from 21 to 34 and three of them, including the ringleader, have previous convictions for attempting to join IS in Syria, the public prosecution department said.

Terror Train to Munich

Upon the night train to Munich
Rumbling down the track…
Then you’d better pray that he doesn’t look away
Or you’ll never, never, never come back

— from “Night Train to Munich”, by Al Stewart

There were a couple of items in last night’s news feed about an attempted terror attack on a high-speed train in Bavaria, in which a steel cable was stretched across the tracks. The report from Voice of Europe referred to an article in Nord Bayern. MissPiggy found the article and translated this excerpt:

“Abstract threats”

However, the investigators made yet another explosive find: On the ground they came across a threatening message that was written in Arabic, as well as an Arabic graffiti on a bridge pillar. “The message was translated and assessed,” says Waldinger. It seems to be related to the attack on the ICE. Although the text does not contain specific threats or plans for attack, Waldinger speaks of “abstract threats”. There is no further information on the content of the message.

A longer report from PI News is below these two videos, which were also translated by MissPiggy. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

Here’s the report from Politically Incorrect:

“Tightrope Act”: Arabs planned a deadly attack on ICE in Bavaria

Damaged Inter City Express (ICE) — Merkel’s so-called “fleeing persons in need of protection” planned a deadly attack on hundreds of people on the railway line between Nuremberg and Munich. The attempted attack that occurred two weeks before the Bavarian election was just now made public. Coincidence?

By Max Thoma

At the beginning of October, hundreds of passengers aboard an ICE only escaped through luck a fatal catastrophe between Allersberg and Neumarkt / Oberpfalz. While driving, their express broke through a treacherously designed barrier — the Bavarian security authorities are now examining evidence of an Islamic terrorist background: The Prosecutor General of Bavaria has taken over the investigation, together with the Munich Central Office for Combating Extremism and Terrorism.

The State Office for Criminal Investigations (LKA) investigates failed terrorist attack

“There was an incident on 7 October,” confirmed a spokesman for the Bavarian State Office for Criminal Investigation. On the route from Nuremberg, traveling in the direction of Munich, the train driver noticed a suspicious noise, and then noticed damage to the ICE at the terminal station in Munich, he explained. Investigators later found a threatening letter and “graffiti” in Arabic, which were verified as authentic.

Elisabeth’s Voice — Now More Than Ever

We reported on Friday that the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) had finally handed down its decision on the appeal by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff against her conviction in Austria for “hate speech”. The court ruled against her, saying that the Austrian law under which she was tried was within acceptable limits, and did not violate her human rights, because it served the higher good of protecting religious feelings and keeping the religious peace.

The ECHR’s decision has given far more prominence to Elisabeth’s case than it has ever had before. At the bottom of this post is a list of 68 English-language media reports on the decision. The outlets include The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Al Arabiya, The Atlantic, Fox News, National Review, Newsweek, The Telegraph, and numerous others.

I recommend that Elisabeth’s supporters augment this wave of publicity in any way they can. If you keep a blog, you could feature her case and the court’s decision. If you comment on news sites or post on forums, you can inject the topic into the conversation.

Ultimately, this case is not just about Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff. Everyone who falls under the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights — which means not only those in Western Europe, but Hungary, Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, the Baltics, Romania, Bulgaria, and even Russia — has been put on notice: If you say anything that “disturbs the religious peace” — i.e., offends Muslims — your speech is no longer protected by human rights laws.

I can guarantee you that the Muslim world has taken note of the ECHR’s decision. Al Arabiya is not the only Islamic outlet that reported on the decision — check the list for other news sites in the Middle East and South Asia, especially Pakistan.

Once again, I must emphasize the exact words spoken by Elisabeth concerning Mohammed’s marriage to Aisha, for which she was prosecuted and convicted. They were: “What do you call it if not ‘pedophilia’?”

It was a question she raised in a private conversation, and then recounted during her seminar. That was what the entire case against her was built on.

She also remarked that the prophet of Islam “had a thing for little girls.” It’s no longer legal to say those things (and variants on them) in Austria, as confirmed by the ECHR. However, it IS legal to say this:

“Muhammad’s wife Aisha entered the marriage at age 6, which was consummated at the age of 9.”— Higher Court of Vienna, decision Dec 20, 2011

or in German:

„Mohammeds Frau Aischa wurde mit 6 Jahren verheiratet. Die Ehe wurde vollzogen, als sie 9 Jahre alt war.” — Laut OLG Wien, Urteil vom 20.12.2011

The ECHR decision does NOT impact on any Austrian’s right to say those things, because they were stated in the public record by the highest court in Vienna.

As I remarked back in December 2011, on the day of the higher court’s decision:

As reported in the live-blog earlier today, the high-court judge in Vienna actually allowed the quoting of an authoritative hadith in the courtroom: “Muhammad’s wife Aisha entered the marriage at age 6, which was consummated at the age of 9.” He then acknowledged that the passage was already public knowledge, and thus repeating it could not be punishable under the law.

He upheld Elisabeth’s conviction, however, based on a somewhat peculiar interpretation of Austrian law: to say “Mohammed had a thing for little girls” is an “excess of opinion” that cannot be tolerated. It constitutes ridicule, and is not justifiable.

An interesting and useful corollary can be derived from today’s ruling: it is now completely legal to quote in public the authoritative hadith about Mohammed’s sex acts with a nine-year-old girl. A precedent was established today — at least in Austria.

To that end, one of our Austrian contacts conceived the idea for the Aisha Billboard Project, which would go on prominent display somewhere in Vienna. The digitally-created billboard below shows the German-language version:

And the English translation:

However, a financial backer for the project could never be found. Which is understandable — People in Europe are really scared to stick their necks out, and with good reason. It may be officially legal to say what’s on that billboard, but that doesn’t mean it’s prudent. One’s life may be so easily ruined by the government, or the private sector, or by both working in tandem.

The French Dilemma: Exile in Hungary? Or Stay and Fight?

The following video is the second half of a French documentary about Francophones who emigrate to Hungary to get away from all the cultural enrichment in France. (The first half is here.) This portion of the documentary also looks at the “right-wing extremists” who choose to stay in France and prepare for inevitable armed conflict between the native French and their future Islamic overlords.

If you’re willing to suffer through the sneering condescension and contempt for the français de souche displayed by the narrator and the reporter, this clip is well worth watching.

The Birds Fly Over Sderot

Hamas is currently at war with Israel, launching missiles and incendiary kites on a daily basis into southern Israel. The news about the attacks only makes it onto the world’s TV screens if one of the puir wee bairns among the Palestinians gets killed — usually because the child’s school or crèche is used to store missiles or arms, making it into a target for the IDF.

Our Israeli correspondent MC sends this report on the situation, literally from his own front yard.

The birds fly over Sderot

by MC

It was a rough night. It started at 10pm and finished at 10am after some twenty missiles were launched in five attacks.

The small arms shooting is still going on as I sit here (8:20pm).

These are photos from about a minute after multiple Iron Dome intercepts occurred right overhead. The photos were taken from the front garden!

This is where the ‘humanitarian’ aid to Gaza ends up. That is your tax money up there burning up.

Islam is incorrigibly malicious. Its doctrines are the doctrines of evangelism by violence and coercion. It seeks to conquer and forcibly convert, and if genocide is necessary, then so be it.

Shooting missiles at random against a civilian population is acceptable in Yemen, Syria, and against Israel. And the world looks on complacently: Not my front door —Yawn!

MC lives in the southern Israeli city of Sderot. For his previous essays, see the MC Archives.

A Perp Walk For Mohammed

Most readers will remember Bosch Fawstin, whose cartoon won the “Draw Mohammed” contest in Garland, Texas, on May 3, 2015 — the same event at which two mujahideen were shot dead outside the venue when they tried to get inside and kill people.

Geert Wilders was the keynote speaker at that event. His presence (along with that of Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller) raised its profile high enough to make it a target for the Great Jihad.

The following cartoon by Bosch Fawstin shows Mr. Fawstin and Geert Wilders perp-walking Mohammed:

I’m not sure, but I think this cartoon was originally intended to be displayed last month during Mr. Wilders’ aborted “Draw Mohammed” contest in the Dutch Parliament.

Which Does Marine Le Pen Need More: A Shrink or a Lawyer?

The French government employed a vintage Soviet strategy against Marine Le Pen, the leader of Rassemblement National (National Rally, formerly Front National): they demanded that she undergo a psychiatric evaluation. This came on the heels of her being charged for displaying photos of ISIS atrocities on Twitter, which was in response to someone who compared her party with the Islamic State.

In the following MSM clip from French TV, the interviewer attempts to get Ms. Le Pen to admit that displaying the ISIS photos was indeed likely to stir up hatred.

Update on the Terror Attack at McDonald’s in Cologne

As of last night, the German authorities were still maintaining that yesterday’s firebomb attack and hostage-taking in Cologne had “no connection to terrorism.” Today the story looks a little different.

(Also, just before I went to bed last night, I read that police had shot the terrorist and taken him into custody, apparently still alive.)

Here’s MissPiggy’s update:

The suitcases brought by the terrorist to the McDonald’s at the Cologne train station were filled with fire accelerants. Steel balls were included.

“Cologne terrorist wanted to do ‘immense damage’.”

We’re not getting this news in Germany; this report is from Austria.

If the identified culprit, a 55-year-old Syrian, had exploded his total inventory of gasoline and gas cartridges, with steel balls attached, there would have been a much more violent crime on Monday with “much greater damage” created, said Cologne Chief of Criminal Investigations Klaus-Stephan Becker on Tuesday.

MissPiggy:   Thank God for the sprinkler system in McDonald’s — kind of wrecked his plan.
VladTepes:   If that didn’t, the food would have, maybe.
MissPiggy:   McDonald’s is for sure Haram.

A Molotov Cocktail and Hostage-Taking at a McDonald’s in Cologne

There was some sort of firebomb attack and a hostage situation today in a McDonald’s restaurant in the mall area of the main train station in Cologne. As of this point, it’s not clear how or whether the standoff was resolved.

According to MissPiggy, who translated the video and ancillary material, the culprit was said to have detonated a Molotov cocktail in a fast food restaurant, injuring the 14-year-old girl.

More information:

Cologne: ‘Islamic State Sympathiser’ Takes Hostage, Sets Fires

  • He had set a 14-year-old girl’s shoes and legs on fire with an incendiary device
  • He also apparently wanted to set the kidnapped woman on fire

According to police, the perpetrator proclaimed allegiance to the terrorist militia ISIS. He called that out to passers-by. The police are investigating all leads. This also includes a possible terrorist background.

According to police, an ID document was found at the scene, which was issued to a 55-year-old Syrian. It was not yet definitively confirmed whether it belongs to the hostage-taker who was critically injured during the police operation.

You won’t get all those culture-enriching details from this MSM news video, however:

Terror in Camp Moria

Some weeks ago we posted a Bulgarian news video about the situation in the Moria refugee camp on the island of Lesbos off the coast of Greece. The following video from Deutsche Welle reports on the infiltration of the Moria camp by devotees of the Islamic State, who now control the place in true Mafia fashion.

The reporter is obviously desperate to discover that these aren’t real ISIS fighters, using, for example, the following tendentious descriptive phrases:

  • “posing as followers of the so-called Islamic State”
  • “supposed group of ISIS fighters”
  • “they label themselves as ISIS members”
  • “supposed ISIS group”
  • “supposedly controlled by ISIS”
  • “supposed ISIS group”

She evidently believes, like many of her fellow Westerners, that unless a murderous jihad fighter carries a membership card for the Islamic State, complete with the embossed seal of Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, he
isn’t anything to worry about and poses no danger to Western Civilization.

The Plight of a Muslim Convert to Christianity Who Lives Under Sharia in Britain

Nissar Hussain is a British-born man of Pakistani heritage who is not just an apostate from Islam, but also a convert to Christianity. I don’t know which Muslims hate more, one of their fellows who converts to another religion, or one who becomes an atheist. But judging by the way they treated Mr. Hussain, they have a great deal of antipathy towards Christian converts.

In 2015 Nissar Hussain was badly beaten by Muslims on the street in front of his house. A year later he and his family were forced to leave Bradford — a.k.a. Islamabad West — because the police could no longer protect them. To add insult to injury, he took his case to three successive bishops of the Church of England — who swore an oath before God to care for members of their flock — and was brushed off. Even the Archbishop of Canterbury showed antipathy towards Mr. Hussain, presumably because the convert’s plight was an inconvenient interference with Christian establishment’s worship of their new golden calf: Ecumenism.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for improving the audio in this video. Some of it is still difficult to hear, but you’ll be able to make most of it out:
