A Bridge Too Far

Tabitha Korol’s latest essay concerns a recent event staged by the “Interfaith” movement — which, as Maj. Stephen Coughlin has so assiduously documented, is simply a cover for infiltration and indoctrination by agents of the Muslim Brotherhood, in which naïve Christians and Jews become unwitting dupes.

A Bridge Too Far*

by Tabitha Korol

It was brought to my attention that Westmount Temple Emanu-el Beth Shalom in Montreal hosted a Muslim-Awareness Interfaith Shabbat Dinner on January 25, 2019, to pay homage to the six dead and nineteen wounded from a lone attack on a Montreal mosque two years previously. Such well-meaning, but naïve, efforts were hijacked by Muslim apologists to promote their false victimhood status to garner sympathy from others.

One might wonder why there was no outreach from Jews or Muslims for the desecration attack in March 2018 on a synagogue in Thornhill, and no homage paid for the October, 2018 massacre of eleven congregants of the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, inasmuch as Canada and the US are connected in many ways. Neither was there any form of condolence or apology offered when a small Canadian Arab newspaper, Al Saraha, published an antisemitic article that posited why Hitler killed the Jews, stated that the number of six million Jews killed during the Holocaust was severely inflated, and asserted that Jews are to blame for Germany’s economic collapse, sexual license and promiscuity.

Inasmuch as the Jewish-Muslim Interfaith Dinner so closely preceded Holocaust Remembrance Day, a day designated to confront the hatred and crimes against the Jewish people, it begs the question as to why that was not incorporated into the outreach, except that Muslims do not grant victimhood status to others, and they continue to deny the Holocaust as the systematic murder of six million Jews. Our FBI records show that Jews still experience the greatest number, by far, of attacks and assaults, yet nothing was done to honor those victims and awaken the attendees to the dire situation of antisemitism that is once again upon us.

It is pertinent to include herewith a few unpalatable facts. Muslims have killed 669 million people over 1400 years, a number quite astounding, but correct. Those who were not killed — the Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus and others — were forced into captivity and conversion. They became the ancestors of today’s 1.6 billion Muslims, including the masses who are now committing unspeakable crimes in Sweden, Germany, France, England — 29 countries worldwide.

Arab-Islamic attacks on Jews began with the Battle of Khaybar in 628 AD, against Christians with raids into Byzantine lands in 630, and rapidly engulfed the non-Arab people of North Africa, Spain, Persia, and beyond. In 1801, the Barbary pirates attacked American shipping, and in 2000, the USS Cole. The World Trade Center was attacked twice, in 1993 and 2001, followed by group bombings, shootings, stabbings, and property damage — hate crimes. However, in a country the size of America, the imams have informed their jihadis that eventual conquest must be achieved by other means — through civilizational or stealth jihad. Hence, our government now has an inordinate number of Muslims in office. Unashamedly antisemitic and anti-American, they are working to change our laws to be increasingly socialist and then sharia-compliant.

Splitting Hairs

In his latest essay, our Israeli correspondent MC wades into the murky cultural waters where shariah advocates and social justice warriors converge.

Splitting Hairs

by MC

The Hebrew ‘shalom’ is translated as ‘peace’, but that is not particularly accurate. It actually describes an ‘inner peace’, which comes with a personal relationship with the Creator, in this case Yahovah. ‘Peace’ is essentially a manmade thing (or not, as the case may be), but shalom comes through keeping the Commandments of Yah.

In this day and age this kind study of is considered to be ‘splitting hairs’, just as the difference between quoting a hadith about Mohammed’s sexual proclivities and accusing him of paedophilia is ‘splitting hairs’, since the one makes the other obvious.

The problem about a sex act with a 9-year-old is not so much the gross physical intrusion as the potential for damage to the child both physical and — especially — emotional. This is true particularly when considering the case of Mohammed, a religious icon whose every act is to be emulated by the faithful.

A 9-year-old is a child, and it thus vulnerable. Because a child is, by definition, not yet physically or emotionally mature, he or she cannot be considered able to give any kind of informed consent to a sex act. Any sex act.

Islam, being a male fantasy-oriented religion, takes no account of consent from either mature or immature women. On the other hand, the Judeo-Christian religions regard the woman as the ‘life-giver’, as the name Adam gave to Eve (Chava) implies. The woman is thus a pivotal player in the commandment to go forth and multiply, and we build our Western culture around the need to support this life-giver and her offspring — or rather we did until Roe vs. Wade.

Thus, because paedophilia is an intrinsic part of Islam, any judgement comes down to a matter of who can get away with offending whom. Muslims become violent when offended and start murdering people, but since Christians are mainly ‘white supremacists’ and need to be taught a lesson anyway… or so it seems to go these days. But just when did emotion and politicking creep into the modern law-making and its associated executive process?

So the recent European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) decision that to call Mohammed a paedophile is ‘hate speech’ is fraught with implications. In itself, the idea behind ‘hate’ speech is to provide a means to demonize free speech. Bur free speech is only really proven to be free when somebody is offended by it. So just how do we define hate speech in a ‘free speech’ context, if the two are so mutually incompatible?

Is it when free speech causes harm, as in falsely shouting FIRE in a crowded cinema?

To tip the scales of justice, the difference between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ must be clearly delineated, and must be able to be applied in all circumstances to all people, both equally, and across the board.

Do Muslims have an existential problem with paedophilia? Does the rest of society therefore have to give way to these Muslim sensitivities? Is there therefore a different law for Muslims — ‘Yes’, ‘Yes’ and ‘Yes’, it would appear.

Germans Are Germans and Turks Are Turks, and Never the Twain Shall Meet

The video below is the second excerpt (the first one is here) of a German TV report about an overwhelmingly Turkish neighborhood in Mannheim.

This installment highlights the fact that members of a visible minority who retain at least some of their cultural practices are treated differently from the natives. However, they also treat the natives differently themselves, which illustrates one of the major problems with Multiculturalism.

Belgium: A Surge of Asylum Seekers From Gaza

FouseSquawk is reporting on news about a significant recent increase in the number of asylum seekers entering Belgium from Gaza. He has translated two articles from Joods Actuelle, a Belgian (Flemish) Jewish site. His summary:

The former Belgian minister for Asylum and Migration, Theo Francken, has complained publicly that his successor has increased the number of asylum seekers admitted into the country from 50-60 a day to 191 a day, the largest group coming from Gaza. He has made a video in Flemish in which he says he understands the fear of the Jewish community about this migration.

Read the two complete translations from the Dutch at FouseSquawk.

In addition, I sent a French-language article on the topic to our French translator Nathalie and asked her to evaluate it. We decided that it was too technical to warrant a complete translation, although Francophones may find it useful.

Nathalie sent this summary, plus some additional observations:

The Star Trek Connection

Our Israeli correspondent MC sends this meditation on Star Trek, mass immigration, utopias, and related topics.

The Star Trek Connection

by MC

“Religion is the opiate of the people” said a famous Communist, and then proceeded to create a new political religion.

Religions are always messy. They are messy because the elites get hold of them and pervert them into their own personal fiefdoms, and those fiefdoms are then twisted to become ambitions of their leaders. The relevant ‘god’ is pushed into a backroom and only occasionally dusted off and allowed to come to the party, but only at the convenience of said elite.

Then there are the wacky video religions, of which the Cult of the Trekkie is one of the bigger ones.

But has anybody else noticed that there is an agenda here? Is our home world to become that of the fantasy TV series, portrayed as a utopian community where there is no money, no borders, and everybody has everything they could ever want, subject to the replicator functioning correctly?

I don’t know which came first, the warp drive or the patronising influence of the Vulcans (the intellectual elite), but both appear as pivotal in a ‘godless’ community (do Klingons see it as Federation ‘rootbeer’ supremacy?). And above all, are Kirk and his band of politically correct brothers (at the time) guiding us wisely through the mayhem of the present to a bright and glorious future, complete with the ‘moderate Klingon’ who sets an example of tolerance for us all?

Of course. the reality is that there are no warp drives and no Vulcans (and no ‘moderate’ Klingons) except as a bunch of pixels and neurons in the minds of our wonderous elites and their flocks, and there will be no magic wands that can be waved to clear up the mess that such trekkie socialism will once more create in our own backyards.

The dominance of the elitist obsession with the otherwise abstract ideas of ‘racism’ and ‘equality’ produce a wonderful inversion where non-trekkies — those race groups which are not part of the Federation — are always portrayed as imperfect, even if perhaps redeemable, but always as inferior and backwards. To be nationalist is to automatically be fascist, and also to be irreconcilably stupid.

The Federation culture is so superior that no other idea can be tolerated, and all must be encouraged (forced) to come into the fold.

So we have a politics of provocation where, as in a game of tennis, you are looking to make your opponent make mistakes. In the corrosive politics of the now, it is something which enables you to point the finger and shout “Nazi” or some such other inappropriate but demeaning slander, even if that insult itself is so misused as to be virtually meaningless.

We are watching this happen right now. Hamas, a known terrorist organisation and oppressor of ‘Palestinians’ is once more playing the blame game, and once more the gullible (and the malicious elite) appear to be falling for it. Thus Hamas is a terrorist organisation only when they are hitting non-Israeli targets, but when they are lashing out at Jooz, they suddenly become freedom fighters. This is the real ‘racism’. And this, from a supposedly multicultural country where the ardent multiculturalists of the UK Labour party just cannot keep their virulent anti-Semitism (the real racism here) under wraps. And as for the UN, well, what else can we expect but to have to pay continuously and heavily for the privilege of having our posteriors battered by the ‘Bandung generation’.

Oppression

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff sends her thoughts after the conclusion of her most recent American tour.


Oppression

by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff

Oppression is felt differently in different places and at different times. There are degrees to the level of one’s feeling of oppression. I know what I’m talking about: I’ve experienced it numerous times in my life. Let me explain.

When I lived and worked in Kuwait in the late 1990s, I already felt somewhat caged. I always like telling the story of how in pre-Amazon days I would visit Kuwait’s bookstores and marvel at the censorship imposed by the Kuwaiti (likely religious) authorities. There was little to no variety in the books I could buy, and many of those that made it onto the bookshelves were hopelessly outdated. For a committed bookworm, this was an oppressive feeling.

Oppression in Kuwait manifested itself not only in the lack of knowledge in the form of books, but also in the prohibition of alcohol and pork. Freedom to me means the freedom to live, eat, read, think, and speak as I wish. In Kuwait I was unable to eat, drink or read what I chose. I want to make my own choices, just as I do not choose to eat dog or roaches, but should be free to do so.

So, when I boarded a plane to Dubai or Oman I always breathed a sigh of relief. Mind you, freedom is always relative. Compared to the United States, Dubai is still a repressive society, but the contrast with Kuwait’s situation is staggering: parties, booze, pork, and other “vices”, as long as you as a non-Muslim follow certain rules. If not, and you are caught, you’d better have your passport and a fast airplane at hand or you’ll wind up in jail. Just check your local sob stories in the papers.

Fast-forward a few years to Tripoli, Libya. Seldom have I felt more caged, more jailed than in Tripoli at the beginning of this century. There was no way to spend money or free time, both of which were at hand in some abundance: no shopping centers like in Kuwait or Dubai to spend one’s hard-earned shekels — pardon, dinars; no movie theaters, even if censored; no decent restaurants; no beach clubs. Just a lot of socialism, Islam and sand.

So driving those three hours from Tripoli across the border to Tunisia was a relief: freedom! — to a degree, of course. Not the kind that I was looking for, but at least I was able to breathe freely, buy some beer and enjoy a beach club on the island of Djerba.

And so it was when I finally left the Arab world that I thought I had left Islamic-style oppression behind me. I settled in Vienna, my hometown, hoping to regain the freedom to move about, to eat what I wished, to read as much as I could (thank you, in this case, to the Internet and Amazon), to dress as I wished, to speak my mind, in short, to live my life in freedom. You see, one only realizes what freedom means when it has been taken away. In our circles, this statement is considered a platitude. It’s not really, however. And this is what I felt during my recent travels to the United States.

Living in today’s Europe, I never fully realized just how constricted my freedom has become in recent years. Of course, I KNOW that my freedom is being reduced on a daily basis by the European Union’s useless and annoying data protection regulations, which were tightened to the extreme this year, but I never really felt it as strongly, as overpoweringly, as I did at the end of this year. I actually found myself breathing a deep sigh of relief upon entering the United States, knowing that what I would be telling Americans would be protected by the United States Constitution and its First Amendment. One really does speak a different language if one doesn’t have to self-censor all the time.

And that is what we do in Europe; we just don’t realize it. Even I don’t. But I recognized the stark difference as I viewed my European self from an American perspective. Believe me when I tell you that I am still in shock, even if I am at the forefront of my fight for the restoration of freedom of speech in Europe. But never have I felt this level of despair at the loss of my personal freedom as well as a profound fear of the future for my daughter.

As the year draws to a close what can we do, what can you do?

Blundering American Ambassadors Unmask the War on Terror

David Boyajian’s latest report discusses the less-than-pristine policies of the State Department when it comes to dealing with the Great Jihad in the Middle East.

Blundering American Ambassadors Unmask the War on Terror

by David Boyajian

We know that U.S. ambassadors tend to be bureaucratic and boring.

If you challenge them forcefully, however, the resulting outbursts can provide stunning insights into their ineptitude and State Department policies.

Consider the mind-boggling statements made by then-Ambassador to Armenia Richard M. Mills during the Q & A at Holy Trinity Armenian Church in Cambridge, MA.

I had bluntly questioned Mills about the Turkish government’s support for ISIS and similar jihadist/terrorist organizations.

Though this occurred two years ago (March 3, 2016), his answers remain relevant to America’s so-called “War on Terror” and the ongoing wars in Syria and Iraq.

When posing my question, I said that I would be handing everyone in the audience a study entitled “Research Paper: ISIS-Turkey Links by Columbia University’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights.

Dr. David L. Phillips, the director of its Program on Peace-building and Human Rights, oversaw the study. The widely-published Phillips is a foreign affairs adviser for the State Department and the United Nations.

Using dozens of sources, the study definitively established that Turkey was providing weapons, ammunition, financing, transportation, training, and recruits to ISIS in Syria and Iraq and to other terrorist groups such as al-Nusra, an al-Qaeda offshoot.

Incredibly, Mills angrily replied that Turkey had not helped jihadists/terrorists in any way.

The ambassador even claimed that if some jihadists had entered Syria from Turkey they did so only by sneaking past Syrian refugees who were crossing in the opposite direction. To its credit, the polite Armenian American audience refrained from laughing.

Mills’ hyperbolic defense of Turkey was particularly incongruous, as American-Turkish relations were even then headed downhill toward today’s quagmire.

Moreover, the ambassador’s vindication of Turkey went even further than had the Obama administration.

Indeed, in a rare moment of frankness Vice-President Joe Biden himself told a Harvard University audience (Oct. 2, 2014) that “our allies” Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and UAE were “our largest problem in Syria … giving hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons” to jihadist organizations.

These included, said Biden, al-Nusra, al-Qaeda, “extremist” jihadis, and ISIL [ISIS].

Though Biden never withdrew his statements, Pres. Obama soon forced him to apologize to Turkey and UAE to spare them and America further embarrassment.

Mills also vehemently denied that Turkey was buying oil from ISIS.

The Birds Fly Over Sderot

Hamas is currently at war with Israel, launching missiles and incendiary kites on a daily basis into southern Israel. The news about the attacks only makes it onto the world’s TV screens if one of the puir wee bairns among the Palestinians gets killed — usually because the child’s school or crèche is used to store missiles or arms, making it into a target for the IDF.

Our Israeli correspondent MC sends this report on the situation, literally from his own front yard.

The birds fly over Sderot

by MC

It was a rough night. It started at 10pm and finished at 10am after some twenty missiles were launched in five attacks.

The small arms shooting is still going on as I sit here (8:20pm).

These are photos from about a minute after multiple Iron Dome intercepts occurred right overhead. The photos were taken from the front garden!

This is where the ‘humanitarian’ aid to Gaza ends up. That is your tax money up there burning up.

Islam is incorrigibly malicious. Its doctrines are the doctrines of evangelism by violence and coercion. It seeks to conquer and forcibly convert, and if genocide is necessary, then so be it.

Shooting missiles at random against a civilian population is acceptable in Yemen, Syria, and against Israel. And the world looks on complacently: Not my front door —Yawn!

MC lives in the southern Israeli city of Sderot. For his previous essays, see the MC Archives.

Och, the Puir Wee Bairns!

The photo above is a textbook example of the propaganda shots of “refugee” children that the mainstream media have so lovingly created and disseminated to advance the Narrative about immigration.

The whole thing is so obviously staged — clean well-dressed, well-fed boys (notice that they’re all boys?) with their arms carefully placed so that their fingers can desperately grasp the chain-link fence. We can just hear the photographer: “OK, kiddies, line yourselves up there and raise your arms like this. Perfect! Now hold that pose.”

As it happens, my gloss on this photo is not simply paranoia on my part. Due to the ubiquity of cell phones in all the “refugee” camps, numerous instances of staged photos taken by MSM photographers have been documented from separate vantage points that show exactly what was going on. The “journalists” who put these tableaux together may not all be working for the same propaganda service, but they’re all singing from the same hymnal — or rather, reading from the same Narrative of the Great Migration.

The kids in the photo are what the media and our political leaders would like us to believe the migration crisis is all about. However, the migrant “children” who arrive in Europe are far more likely to look like the youngsters in this photo from Vienna:

So what’s the explanation for this disconnect between imagination and reality? How is it that so many millions of people in Europe (and beyond) have been sold such a sleazy, obviously phony bill of goods?

In yesterday’s post from Germany about the fake Syrians who were really fake Ukrainians, a puir wee bairn was central to the story. A puir wee lassie, in this case — the daughter has some sort of debilitating disease guaranteed to tug at the heartstrings of every Gutmensch in the welcoming culture.

The family gamed their way into Germany five years ago, and now their children have been here so long — one was even born in Germany — that it would be cruel to uproot them from their new home and send them back to Ukraine, or Armenia, or Uzbekistan, or wherever they really came from.

Och, the puir wee bairns!

The apotheosis of the Puir Wee Bairns motif was reached when a dead baby was photographed on the beach in Anatolia in September of 2015. Little Aylan Kurdi became the poster corpse for the open borders movement in Europe. It didn’t matter that his body had been carefully moved and arranged by the photographer and his accomplices. It didn’t matter that Aylan’s father was the pilot of a boat belonging to the people-traffickers, and had wantonly put his wife and children at risk by including them among the passengers of the boat. It didn’t matter that the father’s goal was to make his way to Canada so he could get his teeth fixed for free under the generous Canadian welfare program for migrants.

None of that mattered. All that mattered was that a puir wee bairn was dead, and we all needed to do something to HELP THE CHILDREN.

Little Aylan was the proximate cause of Angela Merkel’s decision to fling wide the gates of Europe to the entire Third World. Mrs. Merkel — never one to let a crisis go to waste — took the opportunity to make sure that Germany and other Western European countries would be flooded with millions more migrants in addition to the ones that were already pouring in.
