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.

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.

Terrified by Islam — Its Apostates (ex-Muslims)

The following essay about Nissar Hussain and Islamic apostasy was posted on Thursday by UKIP Daily.

Terrified by Islam — Its Apostates (ex-Muslims)

by the Poacher

As a typical UKIP Brit you may fear for the future of our culture, our civilization even, as it is battered in the unattributable “War on Terror”. Yes, we are apparently fighting terror, terror without a cause, a first-mover, a motivation — and just try designating the likely originators of the next horrendous attack. Despite the statistical likelihood of the perps coming from a particular group being clear enough for a 10-year-old to have a good guess, be careful… and if you do, Chief Constable Dick may just get her knickers in a twist and fire off emails to her “experts” as to whether such calumny can be allowed to stand.

Experts, that’s a term to mull over — Vyshinsky might have clarified matters for her, as he did at all those chilling show trials for the recent occupants of the Lubyanka — never needing to return for too long a stay after the judgement, of course. Useful, contemptible, amoral or pliable experts are two a penny, as every totalitarian instinctively knows. (If the use of the “knickers in a twist” phrase is thought of as sexist — it is not. It is being used here as a simple term of contempt for the actions of this time-serving Common Purpose enabler.)

Now, we can act: by voting, by marching, by berating the dopey Momentum-indoctrinated students as they flip burgers, but there are others who daren’t take such actions. They are unable to focus on normal life, let alone take effective action because they are terrified, right now — every hour of every day. And justly. And “our” government ignores their plight. And the police abet the Sharia-enforcing terrorists. These vulnerable people are the apostates of Islam for whom the Sharia lays down the death sentence for their heinous offence — even in Bradford.

However, a few, a special few are forged in the heat, steeled to turn and face the encroaching inferno. Driven so hard, year after year, something alters inside and they find they have morphed into a different kind of person. Such people, seared by the intensity of what they have faced, by the disappointment at the failures of those supposed to be aiding them, they develop a cold fury and complete — and realistic — contempt for the system, for the Janus-faced politicians and for their gutless salaried and pension-hugging lieutenants. Such people can only be stopped in one way — and even that holds no fear for them. Better to have faced down the cowards and the fools than to have bent the knee and surrendered.

Bradford has produced such a son. Nissar Hussain has told his story in a talk videoed at a UKIP branch meeting in Barrow (Google — A talk by Nissar Hussain). His story is compelling and the failures of the state and other organs are too long to list here. He is now writing a book on his experience as a convert from Islam and the Muslim community’s reaction to his apostasy — and it is not of the multi-culti, hug-fest type of experience the Anglican hierarchy would have you believe it would be.

Did We Forget?

Seventeen years is a long time.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I saw a hash tag yesterday: #NeverForget911.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yes, #WeForgot911.

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

No to the Anti-Defamation League in Glendale and Elsewhere

David Boyajian sends this overview of the ADL’s continuing opposition to the official recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the U.S. government.

No to the Anti-Defamation League in Glendale and Elsewhere

By the Armenian Americans for Human Rights

You may recall the national and international firestorm that broke out in 2007 when Armenian Americans in Massachusetts took action against the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the most well-known Jewish organization in America.

Colluding with Turkey and Israel, the ADL was denying and/or diminishing the Armenian Genocide and lobbying against its recognition by the U.S. Congress.

It is the height of hypocrisy for an American organization to continually demand commemoration of and legislation on the Holocaust while simultaneously working against the same for a Christian genocide.

Over a span of months, the Armenian community, human rights advocates, and many principled Jews expelled ADL programs such as “No Place for Hate” from over a dozen Massachusetts cities because the ADL’s actions contradicted the civil/human rights principles that it claims to uphold. The Massachusetts Municipal Association, representing all the state’s cities and towns, also rejected the ADL.

Demonstrations against the ADL took place throughout the U.S. including in New York City, Michigan, and San Francisco. Glendale also did its part.

On December 4, 2007, supported by ANC-Glendale Executive Director Elen Asatryan and GUSD Board President Greg Krikorian, Herbert Hoover High School cancelled a scheduled three-day ADL “World of Difference” program.

Armenians appreciate, of course, those principled Jewish organizations and individuals, including historians and elected officials, who have always accepted the factuality of the Armenian Genocide and supported its recognition.

The AAHR letter

A few months ago, the Massachusetts-based Armenian Americans for Human Rights (AAHR) organization sent a copiously documented 24-page letter to Glendale’s Mayor, City Council, and GUSD’s Board of Education and Superintendent. AAHR sent similar letters to several Massachusetts cities which, like Glendale, had previously expelled the ADL.

AAHR’s letter details not only the ADL’s actions against Armenians but also its appalling conduct in American society over the course of decades. The letter concludes by asking Glendale and other municipalities to continue to exclude the ADL from their communities and schools.

A very bad deal

However, two years ago, Newton, MA schools — whether inadvertently or otherwise — invited in an ADL program despite the fact that in 2007 the city’s Human Rights Commission and then-Mayor David Cohen had ousted the ADL due to its anti-Armenian activities.

Unfortunately — and contrary to the advice of Boston-area Armenian activists who had initiated and continued the 2007-8 campaign against the ADL — a small group of Armenians unwisely rushed in and in 2016 made a terrible deal with the ADL.

The ill-advised deal resulted in ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt’s acknowledging — but only on the ADL website’s “blog” page — the Armenian Genocide and claiming that his organization “would support” (notdoes support” or “will support”) an Armenian Genocide resolution in Congress.

Only the ADL’s National Executive Committee and National Commission, however, not Greenblatt, can make official ADL policy. It’s unclear whether these two bodies have ever formally done so.

Moreover, as the AAHR letter points out, the ADL has yet to publicly confirm that it actively supports the Armenian Genocide resolution. Indeed, the ADL has never fulfilled Armenian Americans’ original demand of 11 years ago — namely, that as partial atonement for its reprehensible behavior, the ADL must lobby as vigorously for an Armenian Genocide resolution as it has for Holocaust legislation.

Even a former top ADL leader has called Greenblatt’s 2016 “blog” post “inadequate … assets, land … everything that Holocaust reparations … has represented should be on the table.”

AAHR’s letter also notes that the ADL has never once apologized for its many wrongdoings against Armenians. Nor has the ADL explained, and opened its files regarding, its collusion with a foreign power — Turkey — to sway a U.S. Congressional vote.

Brigitte Bardot is a WAYCIST!

The retired movie star Brigitte Bardot has made a name for herself in France — and been prosecuted several times — for her animal-rights activism and her vigorous opposition to Islam. The following video refers to an event in which both of her principal concerns intersect: the annual slaughter of animals by Muslims during Eid al-Adha.

The young “French” culture-enricher in this video directs some angry remarks at Ms. Bardot because of her tweet about Eid, and asserts that she and people like her cause WAYCISM.

Public Spaces and Private Faces

In a video from last week, Paul Weston inveighs against the easily offended, among them the Reverend Cressida Dick*. And he goes to bat for Boris, who complained,observed, remarked upon that ugliest of female garments, the burka bag. And for that sin, the Hon B Johnson was vilified by the usual suspects:

*If I were a lesbian (no, I’m not) as is Chief Commissioner Dick, I’d change my name lickety-split. To something more dignified and Latinate – perhaps “Phallus” would be more in keeping with her exalted position.

Paul mentions an essay by Roger Scruton on taking offence. I looked for it and as feared, found it locked behind the paywall of the UK Spectator, and a gilded paywall, at that. Imagine! They want nine Euros a month for a subscription. Sheesh. Or is that pounds? Never mind; it’s still outrageous. I’ll stick with the free American Spectator. It’s the ones I steal from consistently, as I do with Dr Turley, that I feel obliged to pay.

Meanwhile, here’s a chunk of the relevant material from an English website I plan to investigate later. They clipped this from Mr Scruton:

The emerging witch-hunt culture would be an object of half-amused contempt, were we still protected, as we were until recently, by the robust law of libel. It is still possible to laugh at the absurdity of it all, if you sit at home, avoiding contact with ignorant and malicious people, and getting on with real life – the life beyond social media. Unfortunately, however, ignorant and malicious people have discovered a new weapon in their unremitting assault on the rest of us, which is the art of taking offence.

I was brought up to believe that you should never give offence if you can avoid it; the new culture tells us that you should always take offence if you can. There are now experts in the art of taking offence, indeed whole academic subjects, such as ‘gender studies’, devoted to it. You may not know in advance what offence consists in – politely opening a door for a member of the opposite sex? Thinking of her sex as ‘opposite’? Thinking in terms of ‘sex’ rather than ‘gender’? Using the wrong pronoun? Who knows. We have encountered a new kind of predatory censorship, a desire to take offence that patrols the world for opportunities without knowing in advance what will best supply its venom. As with the Puritans of the 17th century, the need to humiliate and to punish precedes any concrete sense of why.

I recall the extraordinary case of Boris Johnson and the burka. In the course of discussing the question whether the full facial covering should be banned here, as elsewhere in Europe, Johnson humorously remarked that a person in a burka has a striking resemblance to a letterbox. He was right. A woman in a burka resembles a letterbox much as a man in white tie resembles a penguin or a woman in feathers resembles a chicken.

I like his arch correspondences; is he covering his tracks with those similarities? Sometimes I watch fat feathered chickens strutting and clucking; that’s when Walter Mitty’s wife comes to mind.

But I can see the faces of penguins and chickens. A woman in a burka? Not so much.

NOTE: Paul is a sly divil. See what he says at the end, hoping to catch us Americans unawares. Fortunately, me own mither used that word.

Suicide by Islam

The following video is the final message from a Dutch woman named Willie Dille, who committed suicide shortly after recording this video. Ms. Dille was a city council member in The Hague for the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV).

Significantly, she names as the instigator of her gang-rape an ethnic Dutch politician, Arnoud van Doorn, evidently a convert to Islam. Mr. Doorn allegedly arranged the attacks and threats as a method of political intimidation.

Her death was reported as a suicide, and then a rumor went around that she had been murdered. However, as far as I know, she really did kill herself (which is more than understandable, given the dire circumstances in her life).

Facebook Post Sparks Violence in Egypt: Copts Suffer

Below is the latest report by Ashraf Ramelah about the plight of the Copts in Egypt.

Facebook post sparks violence in Egypt: Copts suffer

by Dr. Ashraf Ramelah

In Arab-Muslim countries limited-free speech is the norm, due to political and religious constraints. Tunisia and Morocco are not as severe as others. Middle Eastern governments often speak highly of liberty and democracy, especially when addressing the West. However, in reality, these regimes are totalitarian and dictatorial.

Islamic religious doctrine governs the state to a lesser or greater degree. The Quran and the Sharia forbid freedoms that are taken for granted in the West. Islam is a hyper-sensitive ideology with severe ramifications built into its doctrine. The world knows this, and our way to respond to it should be made a priority for debate in our society. Instead, we’re rolling it into our diversity dialogue and accepting it.

Social media have opened opportunities for expression, communication and debate around the world. Generally, a post will meet the approval of readers who agree with it and disapproval from others who don’t. Positive and negative reactions are always expected with any commentary. The more debate generated and held, the freer the society. Lately, in the West, this freedom has been inhibited by digital media outlets that engage in partisan censorship — a disturbing reality.

In Egypt recently, fierce disagreement leapt from computer screens and landed in the physical realm of Menbal. Egyptian law enforcement stood down and let a riot foment. According to reporters interviewing the scene in Menbal, it all began by a posted comment online — a lapse in someone’s limited-free speech. The Facebook post was taken as an insult to the Islamic prophet. As a result, a whole village was attacked and a man put in jail.

By using the man’s initials, the Egyptian media have hidden the name of the owner of the Facebook page where the comment was posted, although the locals know the owner is a 35-year-old man who cannot read or write. This means that no one from the IT community can investigate the page and get to the bottom of the remark (if one existed) by finding the author of the post. A digital witch hunt is thereby avoided, but vigilantism is not — an attack upon an illiterate man, his family and his village.

The alleged “insulter” of Islam is a Christian Copt. The local Muslim community is enraged. On July 9, Muslims retaliated in Menbal, knowing full well they have license to do so because religious blasphemy laws work in their favor with the police. Technically, there are no religious blasphemy laws formalized into state law, but this type of dispute functions according to Islamic religious law. It only takes a rumor to convict a Christian Copt in the courts when two Muslims are present to give “testimony” — no need to verify the facts.

Menbal is a small village in the Al-Minya province south of Cairo. The village is one of a few towns in Egypt that still remains with a Coptic Christian majority. According to the press, Mr. A.A. is the son of a local church baker and lives in Menbal, where he helps his father prepare the bread used for the weekly Holy Communion. Mr. A.A. is now under arrest and in police custody.

Sarah, Champion of Islam

Sarah Champion is a Labour MP for Rotherham, the city in Yorkshire that has become synonymous with Islamic sex slavery. Our English correspondent Wat Tyler sends this report with the latest on Ms. Champion, including her attempt to wriggle out from under the weight of her history of truckling to Islam.

Sarah, Champion of Islam

by Wat Tyler

I wanted to draw your readers’ attention to this Times piece about Sarah Champion MP, and what a martyr she is made out to be for standing up to the muslim grooming gangs ever since it became politically expedient to do so.

Last August Sarah Champion was ousted from her position in Jeremy Corbyn’s Shadow Cabinet, where she had been Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities. As Stephen Evans of LibertyGB wrote last year:

I do suspect that Ms Champion has an eye on her future political career and is willing to sacrifice herself now in a bid to bank brownie points for when Corbyn and his cronies get the heave-ho and Labour return to a more centre-left position.

The Times article is behind a paywall, so I can’t reproduce it in full. The author is Andrew Norfolk, and the title is “Terror police boost security for MP Sarah Champion over criticism of Asian sex gangs”. This is the opening paragraph:

An MP who received death threats after condemning the sexual abuse of girls by groups of British Pakistani men has been given increased security amid fears that hard-left and Muslim opponents are trying to force her from office.

In other words, it’s the usual — she’s getting state protection and therefore she’s a brave martyr. What I find so irritating is the determination to direct people’s rightful outrage into worthless channels.

I am not aware of one thing that Sarah Champion has done to protect any girl, or to get any muslim rape gang prosecuted. Being a talking head after trial, conviction and sentence doesn’t count.

In February 2016, on the day that a muslim rape gang in Rotherham gang was sentenced for sex-slaving white British girls, she got together with muslim advocates at a public meeting to promote the message that muslim girls were the victims. See here, at 14:04 26 Feb 2016.

Remember: This is the day that the Rotherham rape gang were sent down. And what does Sarah Champion say about herself?

What Happened at Baltimore

Today is the 387th anniversary of the taking of Christian slaves in a razzia by Muslim pirates at the Irish port of Baltimore in 1631. To commemorate the event Michael Copeland sends the following essay.

What Happened at Baltimore

by Michael Copeland

It was nearly the longest day of the year, June 20th, when the menfolk of the English fishing settlement of Baltimore in south-west Ireland, set off for a full day out at sea. The year was 1631, the weather good.

When the men returned they were faced with a hideous and life-changing shock. The village was empty: wives and families gone. While they had been out fishing a marauding force of armed muslim Ottoman slavers from the Barbary coast of North Africa had landed, taken everyone as slaves, and sailed away. Some 108 English settlers, who worked a pilchard industry in the village, and many local Irish were taken.

The muslims, Algerians and Turks, had not “misunderstood their religion”, or “perverted”, “twisted”, or “hi-jacked” it. Piracy is part of Islam. Slavery is part of Islam. They were doing what Islam authorises, taking the filthy kuffar by force as spoils of war, Islam being, as Al-Azhar University teaches, in “a permanent state of war” with non-muslims, the “unbelievers”. Sheikh Huwayni of Saudi Arabia makes this clear:

Muslims in the past conquered, invaded, and took over countries. This is agreed to by all scholars… there is no disagreement on this from any of them, from the smallest to the largest, on the issue of taking spoils and prisoners. The prisoners and spoils are distributed among the fighters, which includes men, women, children, wealth, and so on.

(Translating Jihad, 11 June 2011)

This doctrine accounts for why pantomime pirates are depicted in turbans and with scimitars. It is no coincidence, and no joke. They are based on the sea-borne muslim jihadis who plagued shipping in the Mediterranean, raided coastal Mediterranean villages, and ventured further north, attacking places such as Boscastle in Cornwall, making a slave base on Lundy Island, and even going as far as Iceland.

The ships of the young United States, lacking the protection of the British Navy, became subject to the depredations of these “Barbary Pirates” back in the 1780s and 1790s. The Barbary States declared war, the first war of the young USA. Ships were taken by force, their crews sold as slaves, or held for ransom. United States representatives John Adams and Thomas Jefferson enquired in London of the Ambassador of the Bey of Tunis why they were doing this.

Rainer Wendt: The Murderers of Susanna “Should Burn in Hell”

Long-time readers will remember Rainer Wendt, the head of the Police Union in Germany. He was featured here in a number of videos back in early 2016, making outspoken remarks on TV talk shows about the Raping ’n’ Groping festival on the previous New Year’s Eve in Cologne and other culturally enriched cities.

Now Mr. Wendt has spoken up about the recent rape and murder of 14-year-old Susanna Feldman by a pair of Muslim culture-enrichers. As usually, the head of the Police Union doesn’t mince any words.

Many thanks to Nash Montana for translating this article from JournalistenWatch:

Rainer Wendt: “I allow myself to react so emotionally — even without the permission of the speech police of the Landtag [state legislature]”

Rainer Wendt, the chairman of the German Police Union (DpoIG) has reacted very emotional in response to the murder of the 14 year old Susanna Feldman by the rejected asylum seeker Ali B. and his deportation back to Germany. He wants to see the murderer not in front of a jury, but rather to “burn in hell”. Outrage immediately rang out from the corners of those who should be held responsible politically for this murder.

Wendt posted on June 7th on his Facebook page: “And my thoughts are with the offenders. Should they really stand in front of one of our courts? With a mocking grin for the victim and contempt in their faces for our country? Do I really want to experience how expert witnesses and lawyers relativize, downplay and belittle and try to explain that which cannot be explained? They should burn in hell. That’s what I want.” (Entire post at the end of this article)

Wendt still stands by his commentary even as a horde of PC guardians commenced to try to shoot down the Union man with partly dubious arguments. Wendt’s show of stamina as he addresses the one or the other of the mentally absent comments can be described as nothing short of amazing.

It’s no less than stunning to see some of the people who are attacking the police union man, from the rows of those who through their devoted political actions have cemented the quasi-status quo. For instance Daniel Sieveke (CDU), the chairman of the Landtag home affairs select committee, is “shocked” and he speaks out against his party colleague: “In my eyes Wendt has entirely disqualified himself as an honorable police retiree in his populism-tainted demand for vigilante justice.”

Christian Dahm, the deputy chairman of the SPD Landtag fraction, shakes his cardinal socialist head in complete bewilderment over Wendt’s remarks: “He must have forgotten that he has sworn an oath on our Constitution.” He adds, “Minister of the Interior Herbert Reul and the NRW-CDU would be well advised to distance themselves from their party friend.”

From the left mainstream corner the TAZ agitates that Wendt supposedly wants to take an axe to the Rule of Law and that he is wishing for a police state.

“I allow myself to react so emotionally — even without the permission of the speech police of the Landtag”

In an interview with the NOZ [Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung], Wendt confirmed that the commentary that he wrote on his personal Facebook page was very emotional. He had received a lot of positive reactions for this. And he notes that he has nothing to apologize for. “I allow myself to react so emotionally, even without the permission of the speech police of the Landtag,” Wendt says.

Of course he would welcome it if the offender gets his day in court and receives a well-deserved punishment. Only he personally would prefer to not see the murderer in court; he does not want to be part of it.

“Just as a reminder” Wendt posted, for all those who are not familiar with Article 5 of the GG [common basic law, a.k.a. constitution]:

Here is the exact wording of what Rainer Wendt posted on his private Facebook account on June 7th, 2018:

This Is How They Rule Ya

A Brit subtitled this; otherwise I’m not sure it would be intelligible. The un-subtitled version has unfortunate audio problems and thus quickly becomes a desert flower…

I had gotten on YouTube to find some distraction and instead this was suggested. Owen Benjamin is an American, a right-wing (I think) comedian. But this effort, written a few days ago, wasn’t meant to amuse.

Leonard Cohen won’t mind. He’s past minding anything now.

Cologne: Tunisian Arrested on Suspicion of Preparing Toxic Attack

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

UPDATE: The Federal Court of Justice has just (10:20pm CET) confirmed that the material found is to be classed as “biological warfare”, and turned the preliminary custody into a proper arrest.

Cologne: Tunisian Arrested on Suspicion of Preparing Toxic Attack

by Egri Nök

An original translation from Kölner Express:

Terror Suspicion in Cologne: Poison Lethal in Smallest Doses. What did the Tunisian plan?

by David Keller and Robert Baumanns
June 13, 2018

Cologne — what was he planning, the 29-year-old Tunisian who was arrested Tuesday night in his apartment in Chorweiler?

Kölner Express and Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger learned from investigative circles that the substance discovered during the special forces operation on Tuesday night in the apartment of the suspect: Ricin is the third most poisonous substance in the world — 25,000 times more poisonous than strychnine.

The investigators acted at 8pm. The Office for the Protection of the State had received clues that the suspect was handling highly toxic substances in his apartment.

The Poison Ricin

Most people aren’t aware that one of the deadliest poisons in the world can be processed from the same plant used to make the harmless castor oil. If, when pressing the oil, the toxic components of the seeds completely remain in the residue and not in the oil, the smallest quantities of ricin can kill a person.

No Antidote

For children, five, and for adults, between ten and twenty seeds, or one milligram of the poison are enough. The substance ricin damages the digestive tract — colon, kidneys and liver. The mucosal membranes of the stomach and of the colon die and internal bleeding occurs. So far there is no antidote or vaccine.

Investigations are Continuing

It has not yet been announced how much of this substance was discovered in the apartment. The specialists were still on site Wednesday morning to carry out further examinations.

The main suspect is still in police custody. He is currently being interrogated. His wife, allegedly a German who converted to Islam, has been released in the meantime.

Terror Suspicion

The Federal Prosecutor’s Office has taken over investigations, as a terrorist background cannot be ruled out. Current investigations are for the suspicion of a “grave subversive act of violence”, but it has yet to be verified whether the composition and amount of the substances discovered might have negative consequences.

Contrary to the initial police statement reported earlier, the four underage children, one of them a baby, were not taken into custody by the city of Cologne. As the Federal Attorney is not investigating the Tunisian’s wife, but only the husband himself, the wife and her children were released later that same night.

Tunisian Hadn’t Been in Germany Long

As Kölner Express and Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger also learned, the suspect only came to Germany in November 2016. He was deemed unremarkable and hadn’t drawn police attention upon himself previously.
