The Crash of Civilization

by Fjordman

The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 were the type of shocking event where many people remember exactly where they were and what they did that day. Personally, I was living in Egypt at that time. I had started studying Arabic language at the University of Bergen in western Norway. In 2001 I continued these studies at the American University in Cairo.

My linguistic skills in Arabic were mediocre. Since I left the Middle East in 2003 and haven’t practiced the language since, my Arabic has deteriorated and is now quite poor. For me, studying Arabic primarily became a door into studying Islam and Islamic culture. I was far better in this field of study, and continued my personal studies of Islam for years. I am at heart not a linguist, but rather an analyst with a strong interest in history.

Before September 2001, I was already growing more skeptical of Islam based on my own studies and personal experiences. Still, living in the largest city in the Arabic-speaking world during the September 11 Jihadist attacks was certainly interesting. The Mubarak regime imposed a curfew on Tahrir Square and parts of downtown Cairo that day. Perhaps they feared that some local Muslims would publicly celebrate the attacks, the way some Palestinian Muslims did. When Egypt received billions of dollars in aid from the USA, this would not have been good publicity.

I followed the news and newspapers back home via the Internet. They claimed that all Arabs and Muslims were sad and horrified by the attacks. This is not true. I know. I was there. Some of my Egyptian Muslim neighbors celebrated with cakes and said openly that they were very happy about the attacks.

To me, the most shocking thing about this was not that many Arabs and Muslims hated the West in general and the USA in particular. I already knew that. What was truly disturbing was that virtually the entire Western world seemed to be in complete denial about this fact. This was an entire civilization which once used to cultivate logic and reason, yet now seemed to have lost the ability to think rationally. That really scared me.

The Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu completed his book The Art of War around the year 500 BC. Despite being more than 2,500 years old, it remains surprisingly fresh and relevant. This is because Sun Tzu focused mainly on the psychological aspects of conflict. While human technology has changed greatly in 2,500 years, human psychology has changed a lot less. One of the most famous quotes from The Art of War is this:

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

From what I observed in September 2001, it seemed that the Western world had forgotten who our enemies are. Far worse, though, was that we had even forgotten who we are, and the roots of our own civilization.

A decade later, another terror attack would have an even more direct impact on my life. Both attacks became national traumas. Yet the 2011 attacks in Norway were carried out by a single individual acting alone, whose alleged terrorist network only existed inside his mentally disturbed head. The 2001 attacks in the USA were carried out by many different individuals from a real international terror network whose ideology has adherents worldwide. Moreover, when a small country is attacked, this is bad for that small country. When a large and powerful country is attacked, this has geopolitical consequences.

By 2011, I had been living in the same flat in Oslo for eight years, since my return from the Middle East. When the July 22 attacks happened, some people blamed me personally for the atrocities. I suddenly found myself near the epicenter of an international news story. This was extremely unpleasant, but in some ways also educational. If the 2001 attacks weakened my trust in Western mass media, the 2011 attacks totally destroyed it.

Been There. Done That.

Unless some compelling reason emerges in future years, this will be my last 9-11 anniversary post.

It’s been an educational twenty years, to say the least. The first three anniversaries came up before Dymphna and I started blogging in October of 2004. During those years we had begun our studies of Islam and sharia, eventually launching Gates of Vienna to make our own small contribution to what later became known as the Counterjihad. From 2005 onward, one or the other of us always did a commemorative post when September 11th rolled around.

I still remember what I was doing when I heard the news on that bright, cool September morning, and how the day subsequently unfolded, but I’m not going to write about all that — I’ve covered it too many times before. And I’ll stay away from the political sequelae, except to note that the way the Patriot Act was eventually abused was at least as bad as the most skeptical libertarians predicted, and probably worse.

Over the next decade I spent a lot of time educating myself about Islam and sharia. Beginning in 2009, retired Major Stephen Coughlin was especially helpful in furthering my education. He made me understand the depth and breadth of the penetration of the federal government and the military by the Muslim Brotherhood, to the point that we had written sharia into the constitutions that we devised for Iraq and Afghanistan.

At first it seemed that a combination of ignorance and cluelessness had led to such foolhardy behavior, but as time went by — especially after the Islamophiles in the Obama administration got going full throttle — I realized that there was more than mere ignorance at work. Yes, there were plenty of ill-informed and stupid people at the upper levels of the government and the military, but John Brennan — just to pick an example — was not one of them. There was no way that he could have failed to understand exactly what the Muslim Brotherhood was up to. Thus we can only conclude that Islamization is part of the Deep State’s plan for the deconstruction of Western Civilization.

As the teens wore on, my cynicism and disillusionment about our government got worse and worse. I had started out with the naïve idea that there were decent people among our political leaders who really were attempting to do their best for the country. However, the true state of affairs eventually became ineluctable: corruption and malevolence were (and are) the norm, from the lowest to the highest levels of government. There are a few very rare exceptions, but they play no meaningful role in steering the ship of state.

The five years since Donald Trump stormed onto the political scene have really clarified the extent of the evil rot that has eaten out the core of our political and cultural institutions. The investigation and impeachment of Mr. Trump revealed the true purpose of the Patriot Act. And last fall’s election showed that the Deep State now has full control over the counting of the votes, so that no future elections will show any results other than those they intend. Diehard Republicans who are salivating over the midterms or 2024 are the most clueless of all. If they haven’t yet realized the nature of our new totalitarian dystopia, they probably never will. There’s no voting our way out of this.

So here we are, twenty years later. Afghanistan has reverted to what it was in 2001, except with much better roads, airfields, telecommunications, and surveillance equipment. We just handed the country over to the mujahideen we overthrew back then, lavishing upon them such quantities of state-of-the-art munitions and equipment that they will be the most powerful jihad army ever assembled, courtesy of the United States of America.

Here at home we are entering the full Corona despotism that the paranoid cynics among us have been predicting ever since the start of the “pandemic”. Since I intend to remain unjabbed, by this time next year I don’t know whether I’ll be able to get medical treatment, or eat in a restaurant, or even shop in a supermarket. By September 11, 2022 I might be unable to post a 9-11 commemoration, even if I wanted to.

I remember the ubiquitous “Never Forget” banners that popped up all over the place after 9-11. I didn’t forget.

I remember the “Let’s roll!” spirit that emerged. I rolled as best I could.

I remember when George W. Bush promised to hunt down the evil perpetrators and bring them to justice. And he did manage to round up quite a few of them and stash them in Gitmo until they were released to become ministers in the new government of Afghanistan.

The Bataclan Mujahid Goes on Trial

Salah Abdeslam has gone on trial in Paris. The “Belgian” man is the sole survivor of the group that planned and executed the Islamic terror attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015. The most well-known action on that horrible day took place at the Bataclan Café, where ninety people were executed. Yet for some reason the Bataclan isn’t mentioned in either of the two articles below.

The trial began today, and Mr. Abdeslam declared his allegiance to the Islamic State in his opening remarks. The entire judicial process is expected to last nine months, with a possible verdict handed down next May.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating these two articles. The first was, from France24, was published yesterday, before the trial began:

The November 13 attacks: The undersides of an extraordinary trial

September 7, 2021
by Bahar Makooi

Historic and unprecedented in its size, the November 13 trial attacks required more than two years of preparation in order to set up a titanic and highly secure judicial system. Over the course of nine months, more than 300 witnesses will be heard by the Special Criminal Court of Paris, which will be charged with judging 20 accused, including Salah Abdeslam.

It is the largest criminal hearing ever held in France. In a few days, the trial of the terrorist attacks that produced 130 deaths and 350 injured in Paris and Saint-Denis will begin in the capital.

Beginning September 8 and lasting 9 months, the Special Criminal Court of Paris will be charged with judging 20 accused, including Salah Abdeslam, the lone survivor among the commandos tasked by the organization Islamic State with committing terrorist attacks in France. Facing trial, 14 accused will be present, and 6 will be judged in absentia.

A titanic judicial setup was planned because this trial is extraordinary, first of all because of the elevated number of civil parties: Almost 1,800 people of some 20 different nationalities. Some 300 witnesses will be heard, essentially next of kin of the victims and some survivors of the attacks, represented by almost as many lawyers.

This trial is also unprecedented in its emotional weight and its length: At least 145 days of hearings are scheduled until May 25, 2022. Holding a trial of this magnitude till its end constitutes a challenge without precedent for the judicial institution, particularly in a time of pandemic and a still-elevated terrorist threat.

A custom-built courtroom

From a logistical point of view, the judicial setup required two years of preparation and the construction of a special, highly-secured courtroom in the heart of the historic Palace of Justice at the Île de la Cité in Paris.

This principal courtroom will be able to accommodate up to 550 people. An ultra-modern room, without any windows, custom-built in the middle of the famous Salle des Pas Perdus, and eventually removable. About 15 other rooms of the Appellate Court will be able to be utilized to broadcast the arguments according to the number of people, for a total capacity of 2,000 seats.

A web radio for the civil parties and psychological assistance

From the main room, eight cameras, technically controlled, will film the entirety of the trial. But no image is supposed to leave the special criminal court because these recordings will be destined exclusively for the audio-visual archives of the court.

Among the thousands of persons constituting civil parties, those who don’t attend the sessions will be able to follow them on Internet radio. This will be the first time that a device of this type has been put in place for a criminal trial. Only the sound will be broadcast, in a slight delay of a half-hour, under ultra-secure conditions. A number for psychological assistance will be placed at the disposition of the listeners.

On the security side, the terrorist threat being persistent, the number of gendarmes and police has not been disclosed, but a considerable security perimeter will be in place, forcing the residents of the quarter and trial participants to undergo identity checks.

A million-page investigative file

The first witnesses are expected to take the stand beginning on Monday September 13. But before that, the president of the court will read his report, summarizing the 542 volumes of the investigative file. That is a file of a million pages, equivalent to 53 linear meters.

These historic trials filmed for the archives of justice

The victims will take the stand for five weeks, from the end of September to the end of October, telling about this night of horror in 2015. The court will interrogate the fourteen accused beginning in 2022.

Twelve of the twenty accused are facing life imprisonment. Three of accused, against whom the charges are less serious, are free under judicial supervision.

If the court keeps to its deadlines, the verdict could be rendered in May 2022.

Knife Jihad Against a Female Gardener in Berlin

Yet another mentally ill culture-enricher has gone on a homicidal rampage with a knife, this time in Berlin. What’s interesting in this case is that the authorities are willing to use the I-word in their attributions of motive, although they hedge it with the weasel-word “Islamism”.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the Berliner Morgenpost:

Man stabs female landscape gardener several times in neck

Sept. 5, 2021

The Afghan, who seriously injured the woman, may be mentally confused. The authorities are also examining a possible Islamist motive.

Berlin. After a knife attack on a landscape gardener, police are investigating a 29-year-old man who was apparently motivated by Islamism as well as being mentally confused. The Afghan citizen reportedly first spoke with the 59-year-old woman on Saturday around 1:30pm near a green area at the corner of Prinzregenten and Guentzel Streets in Wilmersdorf. According to the police, he was apparently upset that the woman was doing paid work.

Then he reportedly stabbed the woman several times in the neck, and she was critically injured. A 66-year-old man who hurried to her aid was also reportedly seriously injured by several stab wounds to the neck. Both victims were operated on in hospitals.

Police arrested the Afghan right at the scene of the crime

The suspected Afghan was arrested by police at the scene. The State Prosecutor is investigating him for attempted murder and serious bodily harm. An investigating judge issued an arrest warrant against the man on Sunday. The man is in investigative custody for attempted murder and serious bodily injury, as well as the attack on the good Samaritan for serious bodily injury, as stated.

The police first reported that a psychiatric illness may have played a role in the crime. The spokesman for the State Prosecutor, Martin Steltner, said that these indications were not definite enough to justify taking him to a psychiatric facility.

According to police, the investigations are being carried out “also from the perspective of a possible Islamist-motivated attack.” “The man reportedly made statements during the commission of the crime that suggest an Islamist attitude,” said the State Prosecutor spokesman, Steltner. As to what statements were made, Steltner did not wish to say in reference to the ongoing investigation.

Love in the Time of Cultural Enrichment

Below is yet another account of debased behavior by Afghan immigrants in Modern Multicultural Sweden. I presume that the Silence of the Feminists reigns on this one, as it usually does in such cases.

And just think — Sweden, along with most other Western nations, is about to be subjected to a new flood of thousands of Afghans who have been “rescued” from the Taliban in their homeland.

Many thanks to LN for translating excerpts from this article in Fria Tider. The story of violent degradation is difficult to read; those who are sensitive to descriptions of brutality and sexual abuse may want to skip this translation:

Mentally handicapped woman fell in love with Afghan — then he invited his friends to a rape party

September 1, 2021

Three Afghan men have been sentenced to long prison terms for subjecting a mentally handicapped woman to aggravated gang rape at a special residence in Upplands Väsby.

“I love you so much,” the woman wrote to one of the rapists, who tricked her into believing he was her boyfriend.

Lisa is 24 years old and lives in Upplands Väsby in a special accommodation for disabled people who cannot take care of themselves.

Lisa has autism and a cognitive impairment, which means that she is intellectually at the level of a small child. She has difficulty following conversations, has a limited perception of time and has difficulty maintaining her hygiene. According to staff who help her, she is very naïve, cannot say no, and believes the best of everyone.

“She also has a hard time understanding that someone’s intentions towards her may be potentially harmful,” it says in a plan for support measures that the municipality has drawn up.

On weekdays, Lisa is at a municipal daycare where she paints and does crafts. One day in May when Lisa got there, the staff noticed that she was very sad.

“They did something stupid to me, I have a sore butt. They used a cider bottle,” Lisa said.

“I shouted, ai! it hurts, but then they did it even harder.”

The staff quickly realized that Lisa had been abused and called the police.

During a police interrogation, Lisa said that an Afghan named Abul Fazl Yaqubi, whom she called her “boyfriend”, had come to her home this weekend with another Afghan, Esmaili Jawid. They bought wine, cider and soft drinks which they offered Lisa.

After drinking a bit, Abul Fazl suggested that they play “truth or consequences”, a game in which when a spinning bottle points to someone, they must either tell a truth about themselves or do something that the other participants in the game decide.

When the bottle pointed to Lisa, the Afghans told her to take off her clothes, which she did. When the bottle later pointed to Esmaili, Abul Fazl told him to put a cider bottle in Lisa’s private parts.

Esmaili pulled Lisa down on the floor. While Abul Fazl held her arms, Esmaili pushed the cider bottle up between her legs.

Boys Just Wanna Have Fun

Two mischievous young high-spirited “Swedes” have been convicted of gang-raping a 14-year-old mentally retarded girl. The Luleå District Court threw the book at them: five years in prison, followed by deportation. As for the deportation part, I’ll believe it when I see it. They were already supposed to have been deported prior to the crime, and refugees-welcome volunteer lawyers pull out all the stops to make sure that nobody, no matter how vile, can ever be deported from Sweden. So we’ll see.

There are a couple of things to note about this case. First, based on their current ages, they were 17 when they first applied for asylum in Sweden back in 2015. That was the year when many thousands of grizzled gap-toothed 17-year-old male culture-enrichers threw away their ID and entered Europe seeking asylum. They knew the rules were different for “unaccompanied minors” — with more generous social benefits and a better chance of being granted asylum — so they jumped into the wayback machine, became 17 years old again, and took up residence in Germany, Austria, and Sweden. If you could count the tree rings on these guys, they’d probably turn out to be a bit older than the 22 or 23 they claim to be now.

Secondly, the crime they were convicted of — manipulating and then gang-raping an underage mentally retarded girl — is a common motif among asylum seekers in Europe. It’s a species of crime that seems to be quite popular with culture-enrichers, while being almost unheard of among native Europeans.

The incident has a very unusual Mohammed Coefficient of 150%.

Deportation-ordered gang-raped handicapped girl in woods: “F*** you very nice”

[Photo caption: Janmohammed Mohamadi and Mohammad Musaruf. Photo: Police]

Two asylum-seekers from Afghanistan and Bangladesh respectively, who came to Sweden in connection with the migrant chaos and were earlier ordered deported, were convicted Thursday for aggravated rape of a child. This after they tricked a 14-year-old functionally handicapped girl into the woods in Norrbotten and there raped her vaginally, anally, and orally. The men, who had been spared deportation through the school amnesty, are now being punished with prison and deportation, but will be allowed to return to Sweden again.

On April 28 of this year 22-year-old Janmohammed Mohamadi, Afghan citizen, and 23-year-old Mohammad Musaruf, citizen of Bangladesh, picked up a 14-year-old girl in a car from her school. Mohammad, who was superficially familiar with the girl, had enticed her to go for a ride.

The girl, who, according to legal documents, has a disability, was surprised that Mohammad had another friend with him in the car and also began to feel worried when she saw that they were going far away from her hometown of Klöverträsk, 40 kilometers outside of Luleå. The men eventually stopped at a hidden turnoff.

[Inset: After marking by a dog with competence for detecting sperm, an area was observed where the mark gave off a blue forensic light source in combination with yellow observation filter. A soil sample was secured in the area marked by the dog.]

Took turns raping

At the location, Janmohammed and Mohammad took turns climbing into the back seat and forcing the girl to perform oral sex. But though the girl asked the men to stop, the rape continued-they also penetrated the girl both vaginally and anally.

After the incident, they drove back with the car and the girl was released. When she came home, the girl’s guardian noticed that she was distant and also began to cry. Later the same day, the girl was taken to the hospital for an examination.

Ordered deported — but allowed to stay after school amnesty

Samnytt has received information from the Migration Agency in which it appears that both Janmohammed and Mohammad had initially received a deportation decision from the Migration Agency since they lacked grounds for asylum.

Defendants

Mohammad Musaruf (19980818-)

  • Interpretation need — Bengali or Hindi, citizen of Bangladesh.
  • Represented by attorney Marcus Strom
  • Warrant issued April 28, 2021, Arrested May 6, 2021, Ordered held in custody, May 7, 2021

Janmohammed Mohamadi (19991013-)

  • Interpretation need — Dari, citizen of Afghanistan
  • Represented by attorney Marko Tuhkanen
  • Warrant issued April 30, 2021, arrested April 30, 2021, Ordered held in custody May 3, 2021

Janmohammed first applied for asylum in Sweden on 7 November 2015. The Migration Agency rejected his application on 13 October 2017, and at the same time, decided to deport him to Afghanistan. The decision became final on 28 May 2018, but thereafter, Janmohammed applied for a residence and work permit to study at a secondary level.

Name the Problem!

Last week I reported on the Italian television presenter Giuseppe Cruciani, who lambasted the Left on his program for its refusal to identify Islam as the ideology behind incidents of “honor violence” such as the murder of Saman Abbas.

Guido Reil is a member of the European Parliament for the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany). In the following video clip from the floor of the EP, Mr. Reil emphasizes the importance of naming the source of slavery and violence in Bangladesh.

And what do you think that source might be? Any ideas?

Just Say It!

Giuseppe Cruciani is an Italian television presenter who is known for being provocative and confrontational. The following video is an excerpt from a longer TV program, in which Mr. Cruciani rails against the reluctance of the progressives to identify “honor” violence as an Islamic phenomenon. He specifically refers to the recent case of Saman Abbas, who was allegedly killed by her family for refusing to marry her cousin.

Würzburg Was a Sedative, Not a Wake-Up Call

As you all know by now, last Friday a Somali “youth” went on a stabbing rampage in the city of Würzburg in Bavaria, killing three people and wounding a half-dozen others before police stopped him by shooting him in the leg.

It was encouraging to read that local citizens, instead of cowering behind Merkel Legos, chased after the murderous culture-enricher before police arrived on the scene. And the incident caused widespread public outrage — could it be that Germany’s Willkommenskultur (welcoming culture) is finally giving way to hard-headed realism about the catastrophic effects of mass third-world immigration?

The short answer to that question is: No.

Hellequin GB has translated a selection of articles from various sources that illustrate the fact that nothing has changed after Würzburg, at least not at the level of the political leadership.

First, from PolitikStube:

Incomprehensible! Federal states stop new deportation law: Over 291,000 asylum seekers who are obliged to leave the country

The number of asylum seekers who are obliged to leave the country is increasing from year to year; no wonder anyone who has somehow made it to Germany and used the magic word “asylum” as a door opener will no longer want to voluntarily leave the paradise with the high social benefits.

291,462 asylum seekers who are legally obliged to leave Germany are staying in Germany and have made themselves comfortable in the land of milk and honey. Their place at the honey pot is secured; after all, there is no political will for rigorous deportations. There is indifference; neither politics nor the authorities seem to care about the grievances and the waste of taxpayers’ money.

Bild-Zeitung:

291,462 rejected asylum seekers are currently “legally obliged to leave the country”. The Federal Ministry of the Interior announced this in response to BILD’s request. But only a fraction actually return to their home country.

From January to May 2021, only 4,671 migrants were deported. Most of the deportations were carried out by NRW [North Rhine-Westphalia] (1163), followed by Bavaria (762), Berlin (413) and Baden-Württemberg (395). The federal states do not have enough deportation detention places, and fail because of missing papers. The federal police could give them more support.

But on Friday — the day of the Würzburg Islamist attack — the federal states prevented just that. By an overwhelming majority, they stopped a law in draft, the Federal Council that would have allowed the federal police to deport, if they were to apprehend someone who was obliged to leave, if they were caught in their area of jurisdiction (e.g. in the train station).

The Somali mujahid is said to have had a history of mental problems, so after Würzburg the focus will be on boosting the country’s psychiatric industry.

The second report is also from PolitikStube:

Knife attack in Würzburg: detectives demand more funds for the mentally ill

In almost every knife attack, the perpetrator’s psychological problems are placed in the foreground; at the same time “experts”, politicians or socially romantic followers come out of their holes to discuss the background of the mentally ill violent perpetrators and to relativize the crime as much as possible. The chairman of the Bund deutscher Kriminalbeamter (BdK) also speaks out and calls for more funds for the treatment of the mentally ill. Due to the shortage of skilled workers, the sick could not be adequately treated.

Epoch Times:

The chairman of the Bund deutscher Kriminalbeamter (BdK), Sebastian Fiedler, calls for better equipment in the psychiatric field. “As with the attack in Hanau or the crime at Frankfurt Airport, we are apparently dealing with a mentally ill perpetrator in the Würzburg case,” he told the newspapers of the Funke media group (Monday editions). “We have significant problems with mentally ill people at many levels.”

At the same time, there has long been a dramatic shortage of skilled workers in psychiatry, which prevents the sick from receiving adequate treatment.

“A particular problem are people who become mentally ill as a result of traumatic war experiences.” That is “not an original issue of the security authorities, but of the health sector,” said Fiedler. “The shortage of skilled workers in psychiatry is also an enormous safety problem. Jens Spahn has long been obliged to present a plan for how he will get the problem under control.”

Instead of wearing a black armband in mourning for the victims of the attack in Würzburg, German footballers are celebrating deviants and will kneel to honor people with high levels of melanin skin-pigment.

The Destruction of Louis Duxbury

Louis Duxbury was a university student in the UK at the time of the London Bridge terrorist attack in June of 2017. His girlfriend was in the area of the attack that day, and he was unable to make contact with her (it later turned out that she was OK). Frantic with worry, he recorded a video rant against Muslim extremists and uploaded it to Facebook. If he had not been so worried about his girlfriend, he might have been more prudent in his choice of words — everyone in Britain is well aware of what can happen to ordinary citizens who say unkind things about Muslims and the Religion of Peace.

Mr. Duxbury was subsequently tried and convicted for his thoughtcrime, and served time in prison. Now, via the labyrinthine machinations of Her Majesty’s justice system, he is facing re-sentencing tomorrow, and may spend yet more time in durance vile.

In the extensive interview below Louis Duxbury explains what happened to him, and what he is likely to be facing. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for conducting the interview and uploading the video:

Below is the introduction to a post about Mr. Duxbury’s case at Crime Bodge:

Persecution and Prosecution of Louis Duxbury

by Rob Warner
June 16, 2021

In November 2019 Louis Duxbury, a 22 year old university student from York, was sentenced to 18 months in prison for ‘inciting religious hatred’ under section 29E of the Public Order Act 1986. The prosecution was brought as a result of a 17 minute monologue that Duxbury uploaded to Facebook.

I can’t show you the video because the police, the Crown Prosecution Service and the courts have effectively outlawed it as religious blasphemy. They don’t call it that of course. The preferred neologism is ‘inciting religious hatred’.

In my opinion the most offensive thing about the monologue is how boring it was. Not a single part of it could be described as a call to arms. It was an expletive riddled, unrehearsed and unsophisticated rant about muslim extremists. Duxbury knew what he was saying was likely to be regarded as offensive and bigoted, and that it could arouse the attention of the thought police, who spend more time patrolling social media than they do the streets. But being an offensive, bigot is not a crime. Nor is spouting hate. And I feel duty bound to defend his right to be an offensive, bigot. The state sees it otherwise. Regardless of whether you think Duxbury deserved to be punished for what he said — and that’s all this is about what he said, and not something he did — there is nothing that justifies the massively disproportionate penalty he has paid for his recklessness.

ISIS Materials in the Würzburg Killer’s Digs — Is That a Clue?

Two days ago a young Somali culture-enricher stabbed three people to death in the German city of Würzburg. Authorities were baffled as to the motive — his mental illness was mentioned, as is so often the case in rampages such as this one.

But new evidence has emerged to suggest that there was more at work than simple lunacy. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Politically Incorrect:

Jibril A., the murderer of Würzburg, belongs to Islamic State

June 26, 2021

By MANFRED ROUHS — In the accommodations of the 24-year-old Somali, who on June 25 stabbed three people to death and seriously injured six others in Würzburg, advertising material for the Islamic State (ISIS) was reportedly found. This was first reported by Focus, but shortly afterward the information was put into perspective. “Whether the discovered hate messages are ISIS material can at this point not be confirmed, as well as the relationship between the material and the crime.”

Shortly after his arrest Jibril A. declared the crime was “his jihad”, that is, his personal contribution to the “holy war” against the unbelievers. The hopes of many politicians and media types that the crime could be written off as a rampage by some madman are crushed under the weight of these facts.

Yes, Jibril A. was in psychiatric treatment and surely not all there in the head, when he pounced upon women and children with an FFP2-mask and a randomly-grabbed knife. Those who are normal in spirit do not fit into the environment of radical, political Islam. And yet the sleepers in our large cities are not the classic rampagers [who run amok]. They see themselves as part of the Ummah, the worldwide community of Islam, in which not everyone clearly distances themselves from ISIS, not only in words, but also in deeds.

That strengthens the belief of the fanatics, the Muslims who scorn humanity. They rise up in the idea of being carried by millions of secret supporters and sympathizers. In front of this background, the next comparable crime is not a question of if, rather a question of where and when.

The murders by Jibril A. are so far, the second-worst attack by ISIS in Germany after the attack by Anis Amri on the Christmas Market in Berlin’s Breitscheidplatz in December of 2016. The terror of this organization will not end with them, but possibly, the resistance of the Germans will become stronger.

Does Islam belong to Germany? Must we now and then accept a handful of deaths as the price of multiculturalism?

No, certainly not! Terror lives, but the resistance also grows! May Würzburg help open the eyes of the German people!

Women Under the Islamic State

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from EW Magazine. The translator includes this introductory note:

This article was written by a Turkish woman who has earned the wrath of her community by criticizing Islam. Here she writes about the way the Netherlands is repatriating ISIS women from the Middle East while Yazidi and Kurdish women suffer. Her words are probably causing another stir in the Turkish community.

Women who left to the ISIS Caliphate are welcomed back to the Netherlands together with their children. While the victims of the ISIS atrocities, such as the Yazidis and Kurds, look on with sorrowful eyes. Imagine that, argues writer Lale Gül, in an article for EW Podium.

Just imagine: You are not Dutch, but a Yazidi woman, a member of a small religious minority in the Sinjar region in NW Iraq. Five years ago, your habitat was overrun by the Islamic State; your community was enslaved, gagged, subjugated, and humiliated. Fathers, brothers and sons were beheaded in cold blood before your eyes and those of other women. Their bodies rot away in 73 mass graves in the area. Daughters, sisters, and mothers, such as yourself are either raped, or turned into slaves, or both.

Raped women bear children begotten by ISIS terrorists

As a result, you, the raped women together, after years-long mistreatment, bear children begotten by the ISIS terrorists that you have not since seen. Pretty gruesome, isn’t it?

The trauma is not yet over: Then you have to leave your children behind en masse in a camp that you will never visit again because, at the same time, they are also children of the enemy whom the clergy of your community will not accept. If you don’t leave them behind in one or another miserable orphanage, you are no, longer welcome. It is believed in your village that a child by birth automatically has the religion of the father and who is in this case a (rather extreme) Muslim: That is not allowed. After leaving the child, see how your conscience is soothed.

Moreover, half of the women from your community can no longer be found.

Or imagine that you are not a Yazidi woman, but a Kurd. One with a deceased brother, father or son, murdered by an ISIS terrorist.

According to Yazidi women, ISIS women are worse than their men

Now imagine that the women from the Netherlands who, as spouses of this beastly system, eagerly and willingly facilitated these inhumane conditions, were themselves worse than the male terrorists, to which many Yazidi women have testified to Dutch journalists. Imagine that you read and hear that these same women want to return to Europe, now that they have lost the war and are calling on the Netherlands to at least give their children a future.

“She Must Die”

In the wake of the apparent honor killing of Saman Abbas, interviews were conducted with Muslim men in Italy about what they would do if a woman under their control were to try to become “Westernized”. The answer: She must be killed.

Gosh, I never would have expected that…

The Honor Killing of Saman Abbas

Earlier this month I posted about the presumed honor killing of a Pakistani girl in Italy by members of her extended family. The body of Saman Abbas has yet to be found, but her parents have decamped to Pakistan without her, and her little brother has told the authorities that she was killed for refusing an arranged marriage with a cousin.

Below is a video update on the case from Italian television. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The following article from Il Giornale (also translated by Gary Fouse) reports on Saman’s cousin Ikram Ijaz, who is now in police custody:

Saman’s cousin knows everything and remains silent: “I will talk in the future…”

In jail, Ikram Ijaz is not responding to GIP [Giudice di Indagine Preliminare, Preliminary Investigations Judge]: “Nothing to do with the end of my cousin”

by Nino Materi
June 12, 2021

After so many hours spent with his two lawyers to “fine-tune the defense strategy”, here is the result: “I avail myself of the right not to respond.” Ikram Ijaz, 28, a cousin of Saman Abbas, yesterday passed the translated sentence to the interpreter who relayed it to GIP and to the prosecutor who are investigating the disappearance of the 18-year-old Pakistani, killed by a family conspiracy and made to disappear who knows where. For about six weeks her body has been searched for in the fields around the agriculture business “Le Valli” in Novellara (Reggio-Emilia) where the Abbas family lived and where the young girl was seen for the last time April 29.

Yesterday was supposed to be the day of truth; it was, instead, the day of silence. The 28-year-old is accused of premeditated homicide (with others) and hiding a cadaver together with the uncle, Danish Hasnain (suspected of strangling Saman), along with another cousin, Nomanulhaq Nomanulhaq, and the parents of the victim: the father, Shabbar Abbas, and the mother, Nazia Shaheen. All four are fugitives. (The parents have fled to Pakistan, the other two are in flight in Europe.) Ikram Ijaz, the only one of those charged who is in jail, is one of the three who was captured by a security telecamera on April 30 as they walked away from the Abbas farmhouse carrying a shovel, crowbar, bucket, and plastic bags. The prosecutorial hypothesis is that the three (Ijaz, the other cousin, and the uncle) were going to bury the remains of Saman. A reconstruction of which Ijaz yesterday laconically distanced himself saying that he “had nothing to do with Saman’s disappearance”. But then what was he doing in that film? Why did he then flee to France? Two key questions that Ijaz would have been able to answer, dispelling any doubt about his involvement in a crime hatched by the same parents of Saman to punish their daughter, who was “guilty” of not having accepted an “arranged marriage” and of not comporting herself as a “good Muslim”. Instead, Ijaz — arrested on May 29 in France and extradited to Italy last week — when face-to-face with investigators in the Reggio Emilia jail did not respond to questions while pointing out that he was “willing to cooperate”. His lawyers note: “He has shown the intention of making more in-depth statements to the prosecutor in the coming days.” Then why not begin doing so immediately? The dilatory technique is a classic of the defense to understand what the prosecution has in hand: stalling is considered by defendants as an almost obligatory strategy. Still, in this case, the evidentiary picture is quite defined, and to crystallize it completely, only the discovery of the body of Saman is missing. (But that is not a small detail.).But this sentence, terrible, spoken by one of those charged — “We have done a good job” — is there to demonstrate how difficult it will be to recover the remains of the girl. Up until now, cadaver dogs and georadar have not obtained the hoped-for result. It is not excluded that the cadaver could have been dismembered into several parts and hidden in various places.

Meanwhile, the lawyers of the only charged person in jail (the parents of Saman have fled to Pakistan, while the uncle and the other cousin of the victim are fugitives in another country) maintain that their client “does not understand Italian well,” and therefore, for this reason, the time of “cooperation” risks “becoming longer”. The feeling instead is that Ijaz knows a lot — if not everything — about the sad fate of Saman. But that he has decided, at least for now, to keep his mouth shut. Perhaps out of fear of revenge. Perhaps because he wants “guarantees”. Or perhaps, more simply, because he has no conscience.

Another article from Il Giornale (also translated by Gary Fouse) discusses the reluctance of Italian politicians to mention JIM:
