ISIS Brides Want to Return Home to the Netherlands

The following news report describes the plight of two Dutch women who left the Netherlands and went to Syria as “ISIS brides”. Their husbands went to wage jihad for the Islamic State, and the wives accompanied them to keep house and whelp out their wee bairns.

Now the women want to return to the Netherlands, but the Dutch government is none too anxious to have them back. The puir wee bairns will undoubtedly be the deciding factor — who, after all, could resist them?

It’s not clear whether these women have “an immigration background” or are converts to Islam. Dutch viewers can probably tell from their accents. One of them seems to have blue or green eyes, so my guess is that they’re converts.

Toy Boy Gets Booed on the Champs Elysées

French President Emmanuel “Toy Boy” Macron stood up in his vehicle and waved at the crowd during yesterday’s parade down the Champs Elysées on Quatorze Juillet. The crowd responded by booing him. Well, strictly speaking, they whistled, which is the equivalent of booing in Continental Europe.

The security services were dispersed among the crowd, but couldn’t stop the whistling, presumably because the disrespectful whistlers never showed any sign of becoming violent. Or maybe there were just too many of them.

What is Citizenship?

The following essay by JLH was occasioned by his translation of the previous post.

What is Citizenship?

by JLH

According to the Federal Statistical Office a person has immigration background if that person or at least one parent was not born a German citizen. The definition comprises the following individuals: 1) foreigners, whether immigrants or not; 2) naturalized citizens, whether immigrants or not; 3) (recent) ethnic re-settlers; and 4) progeny of the first three groups born with German citizenship.

I have been reading the phrase “German with immigration background” defined above, and not really understanding it. It is a way of looking at your citizens that is — pun intended — quite foreign to me. I did realize that “pure French” or “pure German” etc. meant something different to the citizens of an ethnically homogeneous country. But I did not understand how closely it was possible to examine that ethnicity. Some thoughtful Germans have been advocating a revision of the categories described above.

Germans have for some time been reacting to Muslim and other immigrants to their country, who have coined phrases for the resident population such “Scheissdeutsche” (S*** Germans). Unlike the French, Dutch, Swedes, et alii, they are also asked by their neighbors and their own self-appointed consciences to remember that they deserve this, because of what their parents and grandparents did or did not do.

I do not and never have denied the Holocaust. How could I? I was one of the children who got money for a ticket to the Saturday morning cartoon show at the local theater. In those days, you never got to see anything — cartoons, feature film, etc., without first seeing the News of the Day. And the news never ran in those days without a new clip on the liberated death camps.

And since I first heard of it through things like Franz Werfel’s gripping novel The Forty Days of Musa Dagh, I have never doubted or denied the Armenian Genocide. There are many terrible massacres in history, but these two are alive for me, because I have had friends and acquaintances who are the children of those who survived.

Knowing these things does not oblige me to hate Germans or Turks. My Jewish friends have taught me that much. I also do not hate the English because of my wife’s Scots and Irish Gaelic ancestry. I do reserve the right to be indignant at and even contemptuous of the modern-day deniers of Ataturk’s reforms or Churchill’s egalitarianism.

Being an American “of a certain age,” I grew up with the conviction that the Founding Fathers were heroes, the Constitution was a new way to look at the rule of law, and our prosperity came largely from our desire to work — and think — for ourselves.

Those who truly despise freedom of thought and speech have been hard at work to undo those “illusions” of mine. And seeing the tortuous attempts of German statisticians to come to grips with what it means and implies to be “German,” I ask myself, What is it that makes an American? Ethnicity? Don’t make me laugh!

The Majority Population in German Cities is Facing Its End

A number of German cities are no longer populated mainly by Germans — a trend that will increase in coming years.

Many thanks to JLH for translating this article from the Neue Zürcher Zeitung:

The Majority Population in German Cities is Facing Its End

by Michael Rasch
July 9, 2019

Frankfurt am Main, Offenbach, Heilbronn, Sindelfingen — in these and other cities, Germans with no immigration background are still the largest group, but are no longer an absolute majority. That affects West Germany more than the East, and cities more than non-urban areas.

As early as the 1980s, the Greens were propagating Multiculti — a multicultural society. Although it had already begun some time before, the very thought of it was hair-raising for some voters. This reality has been accentuated in recent decades. Although the phrase is somewhat out of style. Nowadays, we talk of diversity and mixed society. Meanwhile, the majority society is approaching its end in German cities. That means that Germans who have no immigration background (as defined by the Federal Office of Statistics) are no longer the statistical majority (>50%), but are just the largest of three groups, with foreigners and Germans with an immigration background.

Frankfurt is the Vanguard

The majority society has already ceased to exist in Frankfurt am Main. This is also true for some smaller cities like Offenbach (only 37% still native German), Heilbronn, Sindelfingen and Pforzheim, explains the immigration expert Jens Schneider, who does research at the University of Osnabrück. The same thing will happen soon in several other German cities. In early 2018, according to the city’s statistical yearbook, 46.9% were native Germans. Germans with immigration background were 23.6% and foreigners — 53.1% together. The proportion of native Germans has declined in recent decades. The 50% threshold was first crossed in 2015 with 48.8%. Schneider rejects putting Germans with immigration background and foreigners in the same pot, and, like many of his colleagues, advocates revising the categories. The concept of immigration background gives a false impression. In fact, ca. two thirds of all children of Germans with immigration background (including children of foreigners) are born in Germany. They are therefore German and would often have the prospect of a much better professional career than their parents.

There Is No More Majority Society

By present reckoning, Frankfurt a.M. is probably the only major city where the majority society has flipped, with Germans with an immigration background and foreigners at 53.1%. According to the “Intercultural Integration Report of 2017” of the city of Munich, Nuremberg (44.6%), Stuttgart (44.1%), Munich (43.2%) and Düsseldorf (40.2%) also show high percentages of foreigners and Germans with immigration background.

Culture-Enricher in Aargau Breaks Teacher’s Jaw

The video and article below concern an incident of cultural enrichment in the northern Swiss canton of Aargau that was so egregious the Swiss press had to take note. A Syrian seventh-grader hit his female teacher multiple times, striking her so hard that he broke her jaw. His action was in respobnse to her impertinence in asking him to empty his pockets of knives and other implements of destruction.

To put the attack into an Islamic cultural context: It was unbearable to the boy that a mere female should treat him with such disrespect. If a woman had been so disrespectful to him in his home country, there would have been two possible outcomes, depending on the circumstances:

1.   If the woman had been a member of his extended family, the boy would have disciplined her physically, and been joined in the process by his father, brothers, uncles, etc. No woman in the family may be allowed to disrespect a male in the family; those are the rules.
2.   If the woman were a member of another clan or tribe, the boy would not have touched her. However, the woman’s male relatives — she could not have been interacting with a male outside the family if she were not accompanied by one or more male relatives — would have beaten her themselves. To have a woman of one’s family show disrespect to an unrelated male would violate the honor of the entire family, and she would thus have to be disciplined.
 

Since the teacher was unaccompanied by any male relative, she was without any protection, lacked honor, and could be disciplined with impunity. Such was the deeply-embedded sharia code that the boy was instinctively following.

The incident occurred in the town of Möriken-Wildegg. Ava Lon, who translated the video for subtitles, sends this interesting information about the name:

Please note that the town coat of arms includes a little African, because the name Möriken was thought to be derived from a diminutive of “Moor”, and thus means “Little Moors”.

I dug into the history of the name, and it seems to have originally been a form of the clan name “Mor” — i.e. “The village of Mor”. As the name evolved, the coincidental resemblance to “Little Moor” must have suggested the design for the coat of arms.

As for “Wildegg”, that comes from a phrase meaning “steep mountainside”. Nevertheless, those things in the lower part of the coat of arms look like red eggs to me. Maybe the word “egg” means “egg” in a Swiss German dialect (the German for “egg” is “Ei”, if I’m not mistaken).

Möriken-Wildegg: A 14-year-old Syrian hit his female teacher five to six times — he had received negative attention in the past

by Nadja Rohner

[photo caption: a young Syrian hit his female teacher (symbolic picture)]

The youth from Möriken-Wildegg talked a lot about the Quran, and during recess instructed girls to dress more modestly.

The case caused shock: last week the Argauer Zeitung published the news, that in Möriken-Wildegg a student from the Chestenberg school broke the jaw of a teacher by punching her with his fist.

He did this when she wanted to find out if the Syrian secondary-school student was carrying a knife — as he had already done in the past.

This time the case was taken up by the Weltwoche journalist Alex Baur. According to his research it is about a 14-year-old “M”.

He allegedly comes from a Syrian family with numerous children, who came to Switzerland exactly five years previously and allegedly lives on welfare. His German is good, and he is described as “quite intelligent, self-confident and quick-witted.”

Still, for a while “M.” had often allegedly been talking about the Quran. He also requested — “in Allah’s name” — that the girls from the area dress and behave more modestly. In this context he allegedly played with a knife on the Hellmatt School recess court. This, according to Weltwoche, resulted in his having to empty his pockets every time before being allowed to enter the classroom.

The Utrecht Tram Mujahid Goes on Trial

On the March 18 of this year a culture-enricher killed four people in a mass shooting on a tram in the Dutch city of Utrecht. The police said it sort of appeared to be a terrorist attack, but they were never quite sure of the shooter’s motive — despite the fact that he told them he had committed the attack in the name of his religion.

Matteo Salvini on the Closing of the Migrant Reception Center at Mineo

As mentioned in last night’s news feed, Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini presided over the closing of the migrant reception center at Mineo in Sicily, which used to be Europe’s largest. Below are excerpts from the occasion, as posted by Ruptly.

The following article from Breitbart (hat tip JD) reports on the closing of the Mineo center:

‘Promise Kept’: Salvini Makes Personal Appearance as Migrant Centre, Once Europe’s Largest, Closes

MINEO, Italy: AFP — What was once Europe’s biggest migrant reception centre, in Mineo in Sicily, is to officially close on Tuesday in the presence of its biggest critic, far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.

“Promise kept,” Salvini, in government also as deputy prime minister for the past year, said last week when the centre’s final inhabitants were removed, to be sent to another centre in Calabria.

This reception centre, a former housing complex for the US military that resembles an American suburb, is now guarded by Italian troops who block access under a roasting Sicilian sun.

At its peak in 2014, Mineo housed more than 4,100 people.

Its population then steadily dropped. When anti-migrant Salvini and the populist Five Star Movement came to power in June last year, it housed 2,500.

Reality is Showing Its Ugly Face

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends this report on the latest cultural enrichment news from The Netherlands, especially as it concerns public swimming pools.

Reality is showing its ugly face

by H. Numan

Let’s start in the past. When I was a young man, the first cohort of young ‘Dutch’ muslims was growing up in The Netherlands. They were mainly Turkish boys, at that time much more of a problem than Moroccans. Public swimming pools were becoming unsafe for girls, because those muslim boys grabbed them where they shouldn’t. What was done? Why, nothing, of course! Pretty soon after that Moroccans proudly carried the banner of being the most unruly, violent community. Muslims started to realize they could gain political power — for themselves. Pim Fortuyn was murdered and Geert Wilders appeared on the scene.

We had a minister of justice, Piet Hein Donner. He said — or more accurately, lied: “If 75% of the Dutch population wants shariah law, then there is nothing to stop democracy from becoming a shariah society”. Let’s start here. The Dutch population has absolutely no say in it. It’s parliament (Second Kamer or congress and the First Kamer or senate) who decide that. Yes, I’ll grant him that this is next to impossible.

Legally, shariah must be presented as a law. Both houses have to vote on it, and pass it with a 75% majority. After that the government and both chambers resign and new elections are called. The next government will bring the law again in motion. Only if again 75% of both chambers vote ‘aye’ is shariah law valid in The Netherlands. Next to impossible, in other words. If you were do it the democratic way, that is.

Now, how democratic our bearded fiends are? Not at all. It’s a blasphemous concept to them. Erdogan himself said openly ‘democracy is the train we take towards shariah’. How difficult is it to put serious pressure on 150 members of parliament and 75 senators? Their family members? Friends and relatives? Or their party superiors? We as a nation simply haven’t got that many police available for their protection. That’s the first attempt. They won’t rest if the vote were to be ‘no’. That means another round of voting and violence. We have to protect the new MPs and senators and their families and their friends and their party officials as well.

May I remind you of 1572, the start of the Dutch revolt? It started with a bang, with the Beeldenstorm or Great Iconoclasm. Catholic churches were ransacked, and craven idols removed. At that time about 65% of the population was Roman Catholic. Of the remainder, the vast majority were Lutheran. Only 7% were Calvinists. Both Roman Catholic and Lutheran Dutch were open for negations with the king of Spain (Phillip II).

Now, the king was somewhat inflexible. For him, either you were catholic or you were barbecued. No other options. But compromises are usually possible, even with one party being inflexible. It was the 7% Calvinists who started the open revolt, and later gained control of the country. That was with 7% extremists in our population. Currently the inflexibles are at least 9%.

Calvinists aren’t exactly the first thing on your mind when thinking about extremely violent religious zealots. They have mellowed somewhat over the ages. The same goes for Christianity in general: even the Westboro Baptists are well behaved choirboys compared with the average muslim. In the 16th century, however, they were the Al Quackies of the age.

Which brings us to the news from today. The Dutch news is full with stories of young muslim boys raping girls in swimming pools, preferably the ‘tropical swimming resorts’. Not fondling. Not ogling, but raping. Young is relative here. We’re talking about gangs of boys of all ages, up to and including adults.

The New Czars of Europe

Paul Belien has published an essay today in The Telegraph about Charles Michel (the new President of the European Council) and Ursula von der Leyen (the new President of the European Commission). Below are some excerpts:

Meet Charles Michel, Belgium’s political scion hellbent on building an EU empire

by Paul Belien

The appointment of Ursula von der Leyen, the German Defence Minister, and Charles Michel, the Prime Minister of Belgium, at the helm in Brussels is good news for Brexiteers. Von der Leyen and Michel hate and despise Britain, with the same vigour as Ann Widdecombe and Nigel Farage fight the EU, and they have already indicated that they are eager to see the back of the UK as soon as possible.

Following the Brexit referendum, von der Leyen lambasted the Brits for having “paralysed” and “consistently blocked” the Eurocrats’ ambition to construct a “United States of Europe,” while Michel added that Brexit creates the opportunity for expanding the powers of the EU, “the most beautiful dream of the twenty-first century.”

Both Ursula von der Leyen and Charles Michel grew up in families of Eurocrats eager to create a European super-state. Both were born and raised in Belgium. 60-year old Ursula von der Leyen nee Albrecht is the daughter of Ernst Albrecht, a former Director-General of the European Commission in the 1950s and 60s and afterwards Prime Minister of the German state of Lower Saxony.

As Defence Minister, von der Leyen turned the Bundeswehr into a laughing stock. She had the German army squander money on several useless projects, including purchasing new assault rifles that cannot shoot straight in warm weather. The anecdote about the German soldier who, for lack of weapons during a NATO exercise, took a broomstick and painted it black is not a joke, but sad reality. She is also known for a Ph.D. thesis that contained several plagiarised paragraphs and for going against her own Christian Democratic Party by supporting adoption rights for same-sex couples.

Paradoxically, the appointment of LGBTQ+ activist von der Leyen was supported by conservative governments in Eastern Europe, such as Poland’s. This prompted German journalist Peter Grimm to suggest that “by rendering the German army largely incapable of fighting, she has somehow reassured countries that were once invaded by the Wehrmacht.”

Charles Michel is a product of blatant nepotism. He is the son of Louis Michel, who as former Belgian Minister of Foreign Affairs and former European Commissioner was an outspoken advocate of annexing the entire Mediterranean basin, including North Africa and the Middle East, to the EU.

Giorgia Meloni: “Sink Them!”

Giorgia Meloni is the leader of the anti-immigration party Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) and a member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies. The following video contains excerpts from an impassioned rant recorded in Ms. Meloni’s car (which I hope has right-hand drive). She is discussing the Alex, a migrant-ferry vessel owned by the Italian NGO “Mediterranea Saving Humans”. Back in May one of its ships was impounded by the government when it landed illegally at Lampedusa. It launched the Alex with the express intention of running the blockade again, in defiance of Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.

Below are excerpts from two Breitbart articles about the Alex. The first article:

Italian NGO Defies Salvini, Launches New Migrant Transport Vessel

Italian migrant transport NGO Mediterranea Saving Humans has launched a new vessel into the Mediterranean following the confiscation of their other ship.

The new ship, the Alex, set sail this week to the area off the coast of Libya known as the SAR (search and rescue) zone with the head of the group declaring that the vessel will pick up illegal immigrants and take them to Italian ports, Il Giornale reports.

Article #2:

Salvini to Amend Law to Confiscate Ships From Migrant Transport NGOs

Populist Italian interior minister Matteo Salvini is said to be reworking the security and migration decree to allow the government to confiscate ships flying under the Italian flag.

The new proposal comes as Italian migrant transport NGO Mediterranea Saving Humans announced it would be putting another vessel to sea following the confiscation of the Mare Jonio in May.

Woman Gang-Raped by “Germans” on Mallorca

An 18-year-old holidaymaker on the island of Mallorca was raped by four men whom German media identify as “Germans”. If they’d been Swedes or Russians living in Germany, they’d be identified as “Swedish-Germans” or “Russian-Germans” — they would have received an ethnic hyphen. But since they’re Turks, they’re just called “Germans”. When an alert reader sees the swarthy faces of the punks, or their first names — Serhat, Azad, Yakub and Baran — it becomes obvious that they’re Turks.

This is Our Town! This is Our Pork!

The incident below reminds me of the issue of the Confederate flag here in the USA. People are offended by the Stars and Bars; there’s no doubt about it. Sometimes severely offended. But the police can’t come to your house and tell you to take your Confederate battle flag down. Maybe in San Francisco or Ann Arbor, but not here in Virginia. Not yet.

It’s my choice whether or not to celebrate my Confederate heritage by displaying the flag. As it happens, most of my neighbors are black. They would not view it the same way I do. Some of them would no doubt be offended, or hurt, or angry, or some combination thereof, by my flying the flag. Since I like my neighbors (most of them, anyway), I choose not to fly the Confederate flag, as a courtesy to them.

But it’s my choice. No political authority tells me not to do it.

Thank God for the First Amendment.

It’s not the same in the city of Chemnitz, in eastern Germany. There the police can tell you whether or not you can serve pork. The rule seems to be this: Pork is allowed to be cooked if no one can easily tell if what you are cooking is in fact pork. That means no head, tail, trotters, or clearly visible pig shape. And the police will come and check to make sure your pork barbecue abides by those rules.

It’s not clear whether the following video is from the same incident described in Jihad Watch last month, but it seems likely.

Sharia Germany: Police stop pork barbecue for fear of offending Muslims, Muslim migrants attack participants

by Robert Spencer
June 13, 2019

According to Searchlight Germany, “After the barbecue, which was organised as a protest against the ‘interreligious Eid festival’, participants were attacked by two Syrians and attacked with a knife.”

It’s clear who is in charge in Germany now. How long will it be before Merkel’s government, seeing consumption of pork as evidence of “right-wing extremism,” bans it altogether?

“Pig triggers police action at barbecue by right-wing extremists,” translated from “Schwein löst Polizeieinsatz bei Grillfest von Rechtsextremen aus,” Lepiziger Volkszeitung, June 10, 2019 (thanks to Searchlight Germany):

The far-right group Pro Chemnitz organized a barbecue in protest. It was directed against Muslims who were celebrating the end of their month of fasting Ramadan. In the end, the police intervened.

The extreme right-wing group Pro Chemnitz launched a police operation with a pig. As a protest against an event for the Muslim Sugar Festival at the end of the month of fasting Ramadan, Pro Chemnitz had invited people on Saturday to a barbecue, where a piglet landed on the grill.

Whole piglet was not allowed

However, the local authorities had not allowed them to grill a whole piglet, which is why officials intervened, as the Chemnitz police department announced. The suckling pig had to be disassembled.

Pro Chemnitz itself wrote on Facebook that they had “strictly” adhered to the guidelines: no whole animals and no single pig heads could be displayed. The piglet had neither legs nor tail. Believing Muslims do not eat pork. This is what the action of Pro Chemnitz were targeting…
