We Have to Lie to Them, Otherwise They’ll Never Take the Vax

During an “hot mike” moment in Israel, Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked and Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz inadvertently revealed their government’s ongoing mendacity about the “science” behind its policies concerning COVID-19 and “vaccination”.

This is something that most of us have known to be true for a long time, but still, it’s startling to hear it discussed so openly and so plainly.

Only Fear

Our Israeli correspondent MC examines the similarities between the COVID/vax crisis and the AIDS/AZT crisis, as well as other examples of manufactured mass hysteria.

Only Fear

by MC

There is no virus; there is no killer COVID; there is no Delta (It is just vaccine breakthrough); but there are huge buckets of fear.

When we give up Judeo-Christianity, we also give up a faith in an afterlife, which means that death is a huge boogaloo rather than a passing from one state to another.

Every time we look out the window we see Creation, but whose creation? Darwin posited a random evolution from a basic cell, but made no speculation as to how the cell got there in the first place. That was left for others to argue about, an argument that is still raging, an argument that requires an explanation for ‘intelligent design’; a panspermia or an alien creation of some sort but not God, never God…

Yet we are still left trying to explain human consciousness in a rational manner. How did we become self-aware?

And how did we manage to throw it all away and succumb to fear? Yet again…

It is not the first time it has happened. Ruthless people can induce fear and terror to make a profit, to get what they want, be it shaheed status or wealth beyond measure.

Regimes that specialize in terror are called tyrannies, but we have never had a worldwide tyranny before, not like this one, not the global reset as a result of a pandemic that never was.

Except what? Virus cancer research would have crashed to a halt except that, in 1981, five cases of severe immune deficiencies were described by a Los Angeles physician, all among homosexual men who were also all sniffing amyl nitrite, were all abusing other drugs, abusing antibiotics, and probably suffering from malnutrition and STDs (sexually transmitted diseases). It would have been logical to hypothesize that these severe cases of immune deficiency had multiple toxic origins. This would have amounted to incrimination of these patients’ lifestyle. Unfortunately, such discrimination was, politically, totally unacceptable.

Therefore, another hypothesis had to be found — these patients were suffering from a contagious disease caused by a new retrovirus! Scientific data in support of this hypothesis was and, amazingly enough, still is totally missing. That did not matter, and instantaneous and passionate interest of cancer virus researchers and institutions erupted immediately. This was salvation for the viral laboratories where AIDS now became, almost overnight, the main focus of research. It generated huge financial support from Big Pharma, more budgets for the CDC and NIH, and nobody had to worry about the lifestyle of the patients who became at once the innocent victims of this horrible virus, soon labeled as HIV.

Twenty-five years later, the HIV 1 AIDS hypothesis has totally failed to achieve three major goals in spite of the huge research funding exclusively directed to projects based on it. No AIDS cure has ever been found; no verifiable epidemiological predictions have ever been made; and no HIV vaccine has ever been successfully prepared. Instead, highly toxic (but not curative) drugs have been most irresponsibly used, with frequent, lethal side effects. Yet not a single HIV particle has ever been observed by electron microscopy in the blood of patients supposedly having a high viral load! So what? All the most important newspapers and magazine have displayed attractive computerized, colorful images of HIV that all originate from laboratory cell cultures, but never from even a single AIDS patient. Despite this stunning omission the HIV I AIDS dogma is still solidly entrenched. Tens of thousands of researchers, and hundreds of major pharmaceutical companies continue to make huge profits based on the HIV hypothesis. And not one single AIDS patient has ever been cured.

(ourfreesociety.com/viruses/virus-mania-torsten-engelbrecht.pdf)

But the real disease is ‘Virus Mania’: the belief that there are lethal pathogens out there just waiting to ambush us and take us as hosts and kill us in a gruesome manner…

Bugs… and boogaloo.

The Truth is Out There

Our Israeli correspondent MC takes a look at the way the Coronamadness dovetails with Modern Multicultural Political Correctness.

The Truth is Out There

by MC

But it is obscured and obfuscated by the liars. “Follow the science” in newspeak rhetoric means ‘you are ignorant; we are wise — just do as we tell you and don’t complain’

As a decades long anti-vaxxer, am I ignorant or have I gone through the data for myself and decided that vaccines are neither ‘safe’ nor ‘effective’?

There is much room, and evidence to doubt both, but the vaccine thugs want to remove my right to make my own decision and coerce or trick me into taking the shot. And Kerching! goes the cash register.

Unfortunately, I do not believe in germ theory. Koch and Pasteur were successful mavericks, not scientists. The science was done by Béchamp, Royal and those others bravely studying pleomorphism against the medical establishment (the ability of bacteria to change according to the terrain).

If terrain theory is correct then most ‘treat the symptoms’ medicine is naïve and dangerous — Iatrogenic mistakes were the third-largest killer in the USA pre-Covid.

If you see the mechanic maintaining your car, and trying to start is by hitting it with a sledgehammer, you tend to ask him what he is doing (Some early gasoil tractors were actually started by screwing an explosive charge into the top of the cylinder and hitting the percussion cap with a hammer — hence the folklore — the DHC Chipmunk I learned to fly on was started with a shotgun cartridge with a striker).

I think the lockdown and the masks amply justify my view. Science has shown that not only are masks and lockdowns ineffective, they are actually both potentially dangerous, yet our illustrious leaders still persist in inflicting them on us. Are they ignorant or malicious? I don’t know; I suspect the latter.

In this video, the editor of the Australian Daily Mail is instructing his employees to ridicule and belittle anti-vaxxers wherever they find them — regardless, of course, of either people’s rights to make up their own minds, or of the truths that are already out there.

The mRNA covid ‘vaccines’ change the cells in the body such that instead of producing needed proteins, they produce Covid ‘spike’ proteins. These proteins escape into the bloodstream and attach to the endothelial cells that line blood vessels (ACE2 receptors). In small blood vessels known as capillaries this makes the inner surface very rough and the body assumes, quite rightly, that the capillary is damaged, so that the body’s own healing mechanisms, the platelets, are deployed. They thus rupture on collision with the spike, and cause a microscopic blood clot. Which is exactly what they are meant to do, but not in every capillary in the muscle/organ. That’s when people start dying.

Most survivable injuries are localized, but spike proteins are randomly distributed throughout the body, and instead of a few hundred blocked capillaries, we are looking at possibly millions, all at the same time, and upon their location — brain, heart kidney, liver — depends what damage is done, and some of the damage is permanent or even fatal.

So why do newspaper editors want us to volunteer for a potentially fatal jab? Is it sheer ignorance? Is in order to protect and enhance advertising revenue? Or is it something much more sinister?.

But then, why do our ‘betters’ fail to see the disruptive, murderous effect of mass Muslim immigration?

The methodology is the same: demonize the dissenters, shame them into abiding by the lies.

For lies are the bedrock of tyranny.

So we deceive them all into thinking ‘racism’ is a (thought) crime, that ‘capitalism’ is evil, that the bourgeoisie exploit the workers, that Muslims are peaceful, law-abiding citizens who cannot be criticized. Even that jooz own the world, run the Capitol and pretend that there was a holocaust.

And that left-wing tyranny is better….

We manipulate the statistics, where the study showed statins are really 1% effective (with side effects), we can say that their ‘relative’ effectiveness is 50% (2% as compared to 1%) and even the doctors are fooled — they are also not allowed to not be fooled on pain of removal of licence.

mRNA vaccines have a relative effectiveness of 95%, they have a real effectiveness of less than 1%, as is demonstrated by the number of ‘breakthrough’ cases — put down to a so-called ‘Delta’ (Indian) variant and blamed on the unvaccinated — exactly who do you think you are kidding, Mr. Fauci?

The Home Guard?

If said Fauci is responsible for ‘gain of function’, of suppressing HCQ and ivermectin, and promoting the mass vaccination with a toxic gene therapy, then he is worse than Hitler and his Aktion T4 programme.

Fauci is making war on innocent women and children, using fear as a weapon of mass destruction, and, in our complacency, and our obsession with our smart phones and the propaganda they thrust at us, he is going to get away with it.

Palling Up With the Palis

The Belgian government is drawing flak for continuing its financial aid to “Palestine”, despite the fact that the money is being diverted to support terrorist attacks against Israel.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the Belgian Dutch-language site PalNws.be:

Belgium continues with development aid for Palestine despite suspicions that the money ends up with terrorists

by Tom Lallemand
August 3, 2021

Our country is continuing with controversial development support for Palestine. An investigation warned that Belgian money may possibly end up in the hands of a terrorist organization, but the minister of development cooperation, Meryame Kitir, sees no reason to put a stop to the developmental aid.

In recent years, millions of euros in Belgian developmental aid has been sent to Palestinian NGOs, but a report from the Israeli intelligence services accuses the NGOs of channeling that money to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), an organization officially labeled as terrorist by the EU.

However, Belgium will not stop the developmental aid to Palestine. That is what the minister for developmental cooperation, Meryame Kitir, said after she conducted a Belgian investigation. “On the basis of that investigation, I see no reason to freeze the resources, nor to conduct an additional external investigation. I trust in our Belgian partner organizations and in the existing control system,” said Kitir.

There is necessary outrage on social media about Kitir’s decision. “Is Belgian developmental money used to finance a Palestinian group which the EU has labeled a terrorist organization? Israel warned our country in May… But the government, after its own investigation, sees no reason to freeze the money,” said the De Tijd investigative journalist Lars Bove, who was retweeted by various N-VA (New Flemish Alliance) leaders, such as Theo Francken.

Hostility to Israel in the Swedish Church

Intellectuals in Scandinavia have long aligned themselves with Hamas and the Palestinians against the state of Israel. The luminaries of the Swedish Church (Svenska kyrkan) are no exception, and the animosity against Israel has ratcheted up in recent years.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the Swedish blog Ledarsidorna:

How hostility to Israel rose up in the churches

Gunnar Hyltén-Cavallius has read Johan Sundeen’s report of the opinions hostile to Israel within, among other organizations, the Swedish Church. Hyltén-Cavallius concludes that in order to understand how the earlier friendly attitude to the State of Israel could change to one directly hostile, Sundeen’s report constitutes an inevitable fundamental building block.

In recent times anti-Semitism has been debated more and more. Investigations point out the Jews in our country are living with increasing insecurity, especially the situation in Malmö, which has received special attention.

Recently a scientific report has been published whose focus is a previously strong feeling of friendship for Israel, which has come to be replaced by pronounced criticism. The Ecumenical Clapham Institute has an ongoing research project within the framework “Israel and Faith Communities”. Johan Sundeen, professor of history of ideas, has now issued the project’s first report: “When theology became 68 ideology. Establishment of a hostile opinion (against) Israel within Swedish Christianity, 1967-1982.”

The dust jacket drawing speaks its own language: A Swedish bishop, in full vestment, holds the Palestinian flag like a crosier. He sticks an Israeli flag down behind him (in the sand, the snow?)

For years ago, when Sundeen published his ground-breaking study “68-Church”, he focused less on the complex problem of Israel and Palestinians. One reason for this was that the book would have been more extensive. Perhaps, this deficiency was for the good, for now, Sundeen has been able to return and examine this many-faceted and controversial question.

The preface is by Annika Borg, Doctor of Theology and a priest. She believes that research that investigates and exposes the imaginary worlds that give rise to and spread anti-Semitic ideas is not just a scientific task, but is “crucial for the development of society” as well.

In the introduction Sundeen refers to a debate in Expressen during the late summer of 2020 when the Swedish Church’s relationship with Islamist organizations was discussed. The columnist Susanna Birgersson had pointed out that many churches “designate Israel as the world’s villain, among them, the Swedish Church”. This was quickly denied by the Church’s headquarters in Uppsala. The Israeli ambassador Ilan Ben Dov claimed in a subsequent post that the policy of the Swedish Church toward Israel often seemed “more polarizing than that which has its origin in the Arab world.” (Expressen August 30 2020, September 1 2020, and September 9 2020).

The Belgian Government is Shocked — Shocked! — To Discover the Diversion of Aid to the Palestinians

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the Belgian Jewish portal Joods Actueel:

Belgium investigates channeling of development money to Palestinian terrorists

June 2, 2021

Minister for Development Cooperation Meryame Kitir confirmed in Parliament that an investigation is underway into Belgian developmental aid that has possibly been channeled to the financing of terrorist activities by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

She answered a question from N-VA Parliament Member Kathleen Depoorter: “This matter is very serious, and cannot be taken lightly. I am happy that the matter is being investigated, but also expect quick answers and appropriate steps by the minister.”

A report accuses seven Palestinian organizations of channeling developmental money from Western European donors, intended for the local people, to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a terrorist organization according to the European Union.

Among the suspected organizations are also found partners of Belgian developmental cooperation such as Health Work Committees (HWC), but also the organization Defense for Children International Palestine (DCIP), which Belgium wanted to give speaking time in the United Nations Security Council.

€3.76 million support improperly used

Minister Kitir confirms that in the past five years the concerned organizations, through their Belgian partners, received up to €3.70 million of which €660,000 through Viva Salud, €1.8 million through Oxfam, and €1.3 million through Broederlijk Delen (Brotherly Sharing). According to the Israelis, our support is improperly used. They reportedly submitted a report to our government, after which the minister opened an investigation.

Payments suspended in Netherlands, Belgian government remains silent

MP Kathleen Depoorter points out that these reports in the Netherlands caused the necessary commotion in the government, and the payments were suspended. “I note that our government, while the allegations are serious, remains much quieter. Nonetheless, I have asked the minister to look into these reports and that she bring her own investigation into the misuse to the Parliament. Everyone is innocent until the opposite is proven, and these Palestinian organizations deserve a fair chance, but we expect appropriate measures if the facts are proven.”

From Dot to Dotty

Bearing in mind the universal propaganda push for “vaccination”, and the evident preparation for a new “pandemic”, MC endeavors to connect dots of the various elements of the COVID crisis in order to discover the underlying pattern of events.

From Dot to Dotty

by MC

We hear a lot these days about gun laws and gun control. Yes, guns in the hands of criminals and the insane are a hell of a problem, but taking guns from citizens of repute just leaves all the guns in the hands of those of disrepute. Those who have not a care for the laws of the land and the rights of the people around them to live in tranquility.

People with guns kill perhaps thousands a year, but it seems gain-of-function virus research kills millions. Democrats raise Cain over gun control, but ignore the considerably more lethal gain-of-function research. Is this yet more Progressive hypocrisy? Or is everything linked to emasculating We the People?

The whole SARS2 picture presents us with lots of dots which need to be linked together to form a picture. I start right back at the time that GoV was accused in being complicit in the Breivik bombings and shootings where the evidence actually pointed to what the Baron called the X-factor, a mysterious entity pulling the strings of credibility. The Rule of Law was abandoned in favour of a traditional ‘witch hunt’ in which Fjordman was an innocent victim and had to flee Norway.

It has been apparent for many years that some shady entity is wielding a huge global influence across the entire political spectrum, maybe as if a band of ultra-rich Satan worshippers had combined forces to squeeze Yahovah out of the world and replace him with Allah/Ba’al as master.

Gates and Soros are the public faces that seem to buy the influence and shut down the liberty, but who is behind them?

Soros historically had contact with SS officials when the Jews of Hungary were shipped to Poland and the Holocaust. Gates just ‘happened’ to land the contract to build the DOS operating system for the IBM PC, when a perfectly good (dare I say better) op system was already in operation on the z80/8080/6502 chips of the time. These are dots number 1 and 2.

IBM itself was one of many corporations (Ford, GM etc.) that assisted the Nazis, supplying punch card business processes to catalogue Jews for round-up, ghettoization, transport and extermination — the famous tattooed numbers were those allocated at the time of identification from local records and entry into the IBM process. These techno-corporates may well be another dot that we need to consider.

Then there is I.G. Farben, broken up after the war, but still closely involved in ‘Big Pharma’:

The Allies seized the company at the end of the war in 1945 and the US authorities put its directors on trial. Held from 1947 to 1948 as one of the subsequent Nuremberg trials, the IG Farben trial saw 23 IG Farben directors tried for war crimes and 13 convicted. By 1951 all had been released by the American high commissioner for Germany, John J. McCloy. What remained of IG Farben in the West was split in 1951 into its six constituent companies, then again into three: BASF, Bayer and Hoechst. These companies continued to operate as an informal cartel and played a major role in the West German Wirtschaftswunder. Following several later mergers the main successor companies are Agfa, BASF, Bayer and Sanofi. In 2004 the University of Frankfurt, housed in the former IG Farben head office, set up a permanent exhibition on campus, the Norbert Wollheim memorial, for the slave labourers and those killed by Zyklon B.

It was in collusion with Farben that John Rockefeller and Carnegie bought into the medical educational establishment and forced the Pasteur/Koch ‘Germ Theory’ exclusively into the curriculum, excluding the maybe more appropriate ‘Terrain Theory’. Terrain Theory has been censored for decades, and is seen as ‘quack medicine’ because its adoption into the mainstream would seriously impact the Big Pharma bottom line. This is another dot.

Culture-Enriching Jew-Hatred in Germany — It’s the AfD’s Fault!

Beatrix von Storch is the deputy leader of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) and a member of the Bundestag. She gave the following speech in the Bundestag in the wake of the orgies of Jew-hatred on the part of culture-enrichers during a recent pro-Palestinian demonstration in Gelsenkirchen in the midst of Hamas rocket attacks on Israel.

Many thanks to Oz-Rita for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling.

Below is the introduction to the video written by Beatrix von Storch, also translated by Oz-Rita:

May 20, 2021

When Merkel, [President of the Bundestag Wolfgang] Schäuble and company have to admit that Jews cannot move freely in our country, this is more than ‘just’ the capitulation of the German constitutional state to imported Islamic anti-Semitism. Under Merkel, the fight against Jew-hatred has become an empty phrase, just the usual blather of consternation instead of decisive measures to protect Jewish citizens and institutions. There is no need to talk about the insufferable CSU man [MEP Manfred] Weber in Brussels, who blames the AfD for the riots, given his obviously massive intellectual deficits.

Imported Islamic Jew-hatred and its organisations must be fought with the utmost force or banned in Germany, and the foreign financing of mosques in our country, especially by the anti-Semite Erdogan, must be stopped immediately.

The terrorist organisation Hamas in the Gaza Strip and its rocket attacks on Israel must no longer be supported through German and EU funding of the so-called UN relief agency UNRWA. Germany funded UNRWA to the tune of €173 million in 2020 and the EU funded the terrorist supporters to the tune of €157 million.

The BDS movement is the connecting link between left-wing and Muslim anti-Semitism. This common front is directed against Israel, Germany and the West. It reaches from Iran to the Greens, from Hezbollah to Black Lives Matter, from Hamas to Fridays for Future.

As the AfD parliamentary group, we call on the federal government to finally act decisively, to protect Jewish citizens in Germany and Israel from their Muslim enemies and to close the decades-old dictionary of platitudes. The time of hollow phrases is over.

The article below discusses MEP Manfred Weber’s blaming of the AfD for the upsurge in Islamic Jew-hatred in Germany.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this piece from PolitikStube:

Disgusting agitation: Manfred Weber (CSU) gives the AfD joint responsibility for anti-Semitic protests

Those responsible for migration policy have opened the gates for the massive influx of Muslims and also for Islamists and Jew-haters, and thus additionally promoted anti-Semitism in Germany.

In order to distract from their own failure and guilt for the situation, Manfred Weber (CSU) says the AfD, of all people, the only party that has repeatedly warned against these conditions and the immigration of radical Muslims for years, shares responsibility for the anti-Semitic protests in the wake of the escalating Middle East conflict.

Manfred Weber is certain that the AfD is jointly responsible for the hordes of Muslim Jew-haters who roaringly spread their anti-Jewish chants in German cities.

Can one speak of character assassination against better judgment when a CSU politician tramples or twists the truth in such a way?

Berliner Morgenpost:

Manfred Weber (CSU) assigned joint responsibility to parties like the AfD for the anti-Semitic protests in the wake of the escalating Middle East conflict. “Radicals like the AfD in Germany or Le Pen in France have fueled border shifts in anti-Semitism,” said the chairman of the EPP group.

“You have to be named as the founder of such excesses.”

Anti-Semitism shows itself on the streets in Europe and on the net in a terrifying way, complained Weber.

“Politicians must take a clear position against anti-Semitism in every form; the rule of law must act consistently.”

Sderot: Day Eleven

by MC

Quiet so far. I have to go to Ashdod today. Like the Baron I have eye trouble, but mine is glaucoma, and the consultant has to decide how to treat it.

Last night’s missile attack was the closest yet. I walked down there this morning and took some photos, old-fashioned Olympus in hand…

There were about three (maybe more) missiles, and some Iron Dome intercepts, but from what I can make out, two landed.

The nearest hit the road about a yard away from a parked car. Two ambulances took away local people. I assume they were suffering from shock; it was all very loud.

The electricity went out, but dinner was on the gas stove, so that was OK, and we were only about two hours without power.

In the photos you can see the scarring in the road and the shrapnel damage to the cars around.

I would emphasise that this is a residential area of a small city (a small town by UK standards), and that Hamas is so beloved of Sleepy Joe and his Democrat friends. The House voted to continue to allow unrestricted financial support for Hamas by third parties (Sweden, Norway the EU and Qatar).

So you see pictures here of an acceptable war crime. It is acceptable to the Left because they are the ‘Fourth Reich’ and the immolation of Jews, any Jews, is acceptable. Joe is no Adolf; he is more like a Goering, a cruel bumptious useful idiot.

Tyranny is as tyranny does, so we have censorship, we have travel restriction via a reisepass:

Who Are the Jew-Haters of Malmö?

The following opinion article about culture-enriching Jew-hatred in the southern Swedish city of Malmö was published by Nyheter Idag before the recent Palestinian aggression against Israel began.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translation:

Nothing is resolved in the question of Malmö’s imported Jew-hatred

Schoolchildren should read biographies of Holocaust survivors, Holocaust-denying should be forbidden, Holocaust museums should be established, and everyone displays their good set of values. In reality, everyone is busy saying the right things without doing anything about the problem itself. That more and more Jews are leaving Sweden’s third-largest city is secondary to the warped reasoning that Malmö’s anti-Semitism has become. Ann-Catherine Björk and Edward Nordén, from the Medborgerlig Samling Party in Skåne, write about anti-Semitism and lying in Malmö.

This year as well, discussion about Malmö’s anti-Semitism came and went. It comes every year after problems and harassment increase in spite of the admonitions and condemnations from politicians and leaders. In reality, the debate on anti-racism and the 1930s has never been louder at the same time Jews are leaving Sweden’s third-largest city because of harassment and threats. This results in discussions about what is really going on in Malmö.

The Jewish congregation in Malmö was founded in 1871, and its formation occurred about ten years after the law that forbade Jews to settle wherever they wanted throughout Sweden was abolished. Neither Jews nor anti-Semitism are new features in Sweden’s third-largest city. But it is still possible that so many Jews want to leave Skåne’s largest city that there will be no substantial Jewish population in Malmö within ten years or so. What will happen then? All politicians and journalists know what is happening, but not everyone else does.

This year’s debate on anti-Semitism began with a report that the city of Malmö commissioned. The report states that anti-Semitism in Malmö is a real problem with clear victims, but the question is more multi-faceted than it is sometimes described.

There is reason to assume that almost all Jewish children in Malmö have been exposed to anti-Semitism, also in the form of harassment and threats. Both extreme right and extreme left are named, and it is likely that this is the “multi-faceted” that the authors of the report are referring to. What stands out, however, is what is usually called “imported anti-Semitism”. The Jew-hatred that comes with migrants from the Middle East and North Africa. Excused by many Swedish politicians as “criticism of Israel”, and thereby legitimized by some of the city’s leading Social Democrat politicians.

It is Malmö where the government party’s youth association chants, “Crush Zionism,” while at the same time the government warns about the 1930s, and at the same time Malmö’s Social Democrats want to have a Holocaust museum and investigate anti-Semitism in the city. The investigation is conducted by a politician whose youth association (Young Left) also sings rhymes about “crushing Zionism”. All this in a city where they have held demonstrations with hundreds of people who chant about killing Jews and that we should remember Khaybar.

The rhyme in Arabic is, “Khaybar, Khaybar — ya Yahud, jaysh Muhammad saufa ya’ud”, and means approximately, “Khaybar, Khaybar — Oh Jews — Muhammad’s army will return.” This refers to the battle at Khaybar in the year 628 when the Prophet Muhammad took the city and subjugated the Jews. The town of Khaybar lies 150 km north of Medina in today’s Saudi Arabia. The Shia terror militia Hezbollah has named rockets after Khaybar. Rockets fired at Israel.

Those who took part in demonstrations in Malmö were also from this approximate geographical background. Also, those who threw firebombs at synagogues in Gothenburg and demonstrated in Malmö. The demonstration was also followed by firebombs outside the Jewish chapel. When the Danish politician and provocateur Rasmus Paludan burned a Koran last year, there was a riot and also then screams of Khaybar and Jews.

Paludan was stopped at the border, and Malmö’s politicians expressed happiness that Malmö escaped racism, hate, and incitement. But people smite their foreheads in dismay. In reality, many have breathed a sigh of relief because they have lost control of anti-Semitism, hate, and the violence that follows. Nothing is solved. That is why we will hear the same monologues next year as well.
