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.

The translated article:

Lale Gül: The Netherlands Gives Yazidi women a kick

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.

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:

What Lies Beneath: President Biden’s Deceptive Acknowledgement of the Armenian Genocide

In the following essay David Boyajian makes the case that President Biden’s recent acknowledgement of the Armenian Genocide is less than it seems.

What Lies Beneath: President Biden’s Deceptive Acknowledgement of the Armenian Genocide

by David Boyajian

President Biden’s April 24 statement acknowledging the Armenian Genocide (1915-1923+) carried out by Turkey was welcome but flawed. Indeed, “Turkey” appears nowhere in the document. Moreover, the State Department swiftly undermined Biden’s virtuous-sounding words.

American acknowledgement of the Armenian Genocide isn’t even new. The U.S. House has passed several resolutions on the Genocide. And a nearly unanimous Congress did so in 2019.

Presidents going back to Woodrow Wilson have described the Armenian ordeals with language such as: an effort to exterminate all Armenians; terrible massacres; mass killings; death marches; and an ancient [Armenian] homeland was erased. If these don’t describe genocide, the word is meaningless.

In 1951, the State Department cited the Armenian “massacres [as a] crime of genocide” in a filing at the International Court of Justice. In 1981, President Reagan included “the genocide of Armenians” in a Holocaust proclamation.

Genocide acknowledgements should not — like car insurance — lapse if not renewed annually. Will the Holocaust become a non-genocide next year if the White House happens to overlook it?

Still, the president’s statement is noteworthy. It could even reinvigorate several Armenian American lawsuits against Turkey. But the statement has problems.

It tries to take the heat off today’s Republic of Turkey by blaming only “Ottoman-era … authorities” for the Genocide.

After the Allies defeated Ottoman Turkey in WWI (1918), Ottoman General Mustafa Kemal’s (Ataturk) forces continued to massacre Armenians, Assyrians, and Greeks. Kemal also ordered that Armenia be “politically and physically eliminated.” When he established the Turkish Republic in 1923, Kemal appointed Ottoman genocidists and continued to persecute Christians.

Thus, as President Erdogan himself has confirmed, his country is a “continuation” of Ottoman Turkey. Knowing this, the Turkish Republic has always tried to evade accountability for the Genocide.

Sderot: Day Ten

by MC

A missile hit about 50 yards down the road from us. We are all OK, but a bit shaken up.

The electricity is out, but I have the router on a UPS.

There was a volley of three; all exploded within 150 yards. Today we have had about four volleys go over. This was the only one that came close.

I hope to get some photos later.

Sending this before the batteries fail.

Sderot: Day Five

Our Israeli correspondent MC sends this update with the latest on the situation in Sderot.

Sderot: Day 5

by MC

It is Shabbat and quiet. There are still a few projectiles flying around, but the tempo has decreased dramatically. News station that operate on Shabbat are reporting street incidents between Arab rioters and Israeli vigilante groups.

Arabs in Israel are split between Christian (Maronite) and Muslim, with the Muslims in the majority, but some of those Muslims are Druse, who tend to be more pro-Israel. The street fighting is worrying, but on the whole Israeli Arabs are better off in Israel than in any of the surrounding states and they know it. The have full and complete Israeli citizenship, enhanced by a form of positive discrimination in higher education (there are many in the universities who believe in equality of outcome).

Islam tends to endow its victims with a paucity of ‘spirit’. The curiosity is that Jews and Christians who have been despised minorities in Arab lands continue to display this paucity of spirit. The generations of Jews who fled North Africa in the early fifties brought with them the Dhimmi attitude, which is only now dissipating in the third generation.

One of the major unheralded achievements of Israel has been the absorption of millions of desperate immigrants, first those fleeing from Czarist Russia, followed by refugees from Nazi Germany, then from the Muslim world after the war of Independence (1948), and finally from the USSR. Recently we have seen those who are fleeing the growing wokist anti-Semitism in Europe and the USA.

That latest batch includes me and my family, of course. Those who survived the Germans were the ones who got out early. There is a constant undertow of anti-Semitism from the Left in the UK, and as the so-called ‘Conservative’ party moves slowly to the political left, increasing Muslim anti-Semitism goes unchecked.

But all these immigrants to Israel had/have things in common: their Jewish identity, and a desire to become part of Israel. There are no ‘economic’ migrants to Israel. Nobody comes to exploit and asset-strip; they come here for safety. Perhaps the biggest problems have been with Russians pretending to be Jews and the Yemenites who, through no fault of their own, were exploited by the socialist government of Ben Gurion.

Much of the Arab/Israeli problem is the result of the British preference for Arab/Muslim over Jew, and thus huge Muslim immigration in the late ’20s, ’30s and ’40s (Biden beware). In 1922 Britain wanted a colony, but instead they got a Mandate (thanks to the USA) to build a Jewish homeland. Britain allowed unrestricted Muslim entry, but strictly controlled Jewish resettlement. Of the ‘refugees’ who fled during the War of Independence, a huge majority had only recently been brought in by the British for war work. They have lived ever since courtesy of UNRWA and the taxpayers of the USA and Europe.

Sderot: Day Two

Below is MC’s report on the second day of the Hamas missile attack on Sderot (and points north). Previously: Day One.

Sderot: Day Two

by MC

It was a noisy night. Early this morning we had three volleys come in, the first of about a dozen missiles which all missed, and a second volley where Iron Dome took out those on course to hit the city.

Sderot is one of the best-protected of Israeli cities, last time I went down to the site last week; there were three Iron Dome Launchers.

They (Hamas) have dared to fire missiles at Tel Aviv — the left-wing bubble. So now it gets serious, one cannot befoul the sacred socialist ground of secular Israel without consequences.

Politically it is all up in the air — we await government action, but government is in flux. The politicians don’t want Bibi Netanyahu to be Prime Minister, even though his party got the largest chunk of the vote. I assume that the next step will be the concentrating of forces around Gaza. The buildup to another limited invasion which will kick the can down the road.

The New York Times is distorting things, as usual. Although the excuse is supposedly about Muslims paying rent to Jews in East Jerusalem, it is really about the supposed ‘election’ in the Palestinian Authority areas which the PA cancelled when they realized they were going to lose. Cancelling the election means that Hamas has to make a show of force, and here we are.

Because the Biden administration is weak, and limited by the innate anti-Semitism of a woke Democratic party, Hamas can attack Israel to demonstrate its worthiness to lead the Palestinian cause. Some people find it very difficult to understand that it only takes one bully to make a war. The victim is then forced to defend or surrender/appease.

Israel cannot surrender and cannot appease. Nobody wants six million Jewish refugees, and there is no point in doing a deal with any Muslim because they are not bound by deals with infidels.

So Hamas picks the soft target, and hopes that world public opinion will keep Israel on a short leash. Ireland is already playing the game, and I am sure others will soon follow.

In the meantime we find Hamas firing an anti-tank missile at a military Jeep across the border, killing one person and injuring two more. This would be a war crime — except that those killed are Jews, so it does not matter to the deep state swamp monsters.

Can one imagine Cuba sending missiles over to Florida? What would President Trump do? What would ‘President’ Biden do?
