All Your Citadel Are Belong To Us!

During the last ten days thousands upon thousands of illegal migrants have crashed the border between Morocco and Spain, particularly at two Spanish enclaves in North Africa, Ceuta and Melilla. The video below shows the triumphant arrival of African culture-enrichers in Ceuta, where they proudly proclaim their status as military invaders.

Celebrating the Mongrelization of France


“For a Social-Communist Caliphate Vote for Jean-Luc Mullah-Chon”

Jean-Luc Mélenchon is a French politician who was born in Morocco and ran for president in the 2017 election, coming in fourth. He belongs to the party La France Insoumise, which is not an out-and-out communist party, but was endorsed by the communists.

The video below shows a public appearance by Mr. Mélenchon in which he celebrates métissage (miscegenation) in France. MissPiggy, who translated the clip for subtitles, includes this additional note:

Here’s another fun video of Mélenchon saying he can’t stand blond hair, blue eyed people:

Jean Luc Mélenchon: Je ne peux pas survivre quand il y a que des blonds aux yeux bleus

“I can’t live in a place where people aren’t mixed. I live in Paris in the 10th arrondissement.

“I couldn’t live in the 6th or the 7th. I can’t survive when there are only blonds with blue eyes. It’s beyond my strength. When we arrived in France, it was a horrifying for us because we had idealized France and we discovered a lost corner of Normandy.”

Migrants Flood Lampedusa

I’m including the above graphic with this post for nostalgia’s sake: ten years ago I used the Cultural Enrichment Thermometer to keep track of the migration across the Mediterranean in 2011, the year of the Arab Spring. The final total was about 61,000, which seemed a huge number at the time. However, the much higher levels in the years since then would have blown out the top of the thermometer. The maximum annual total, if I remember rightly, was about half a million.

The following Italian report describes the current flood of culture-enrichers arriving at the island of Lampedusa. Many thanks to HeHa for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

Lampedusa is Full Up

I’ve been covering the immigration crisis in the Mediterranean, with a special emphasis on the landings at the island of Lampedusa, since 2007. The rate of flow has fluctuated, but the numbers have trended gradually and steadily upwards. There was a big spike during the Arab Spring in 2011, when the late Muammar Qaddafi made good on his threat to unleash the African hordes on Europe (after which Hillary Clinton and the CIA arranged for his demise). The Great Migration Crisis of 2015 caused an even higher surge.

A symbiosis between organized-crime human traffickers and migrant-“rescue” NGOs brought the flood of “refugees” to its current catastrophic level. The business is fabulously lucrative for everyone involved, so as long as the EU continues its open-borders policies, the migrants will keep on coming. What used to be a month’s worth of arrivals in Lampedusa fifteen years ago is now the traffic of a single weekend.

The two articles below provide details on the latest landings of African migrants on Italian territory. First, from Corriere della Sera, translated by Gary Fouse:

Migrants: At Lampedusa, 1,200 landings in a few hours. Salvini: “Immediate meeting with Draghi”

Nine consecutive arrivals with “sea carts”: Hotspot immediately full and the emergency returns to the island. The mayor is bitter. “Don’t call it an emergency, it was all foreseen.” Meloni: “This requires a naval blockade.”

by Salvo Toscano

The emergency returns to Lampedusa with 1,200 refugees arriving within a few hours, thanks also to the good weather. And the political polemic is also returning, with the secretary of the Lega, Matteo Salvini, who calls for the intervention of Premier Draghi. “A meeting with President Draghi is necessary,” he says, “with millions of Italians in difficulty, we cannot think about thousands of illegals (already 12,000 landed since the beginning of the year).” The leader of Brothers of Italy (Fratelli d’Italia), Giorgia Meloni, speaks instead of a naval blockade. “We don’t want to get used to this type of news. Illegal immigration will be stopped. The smugglers must be stopped as well as the immigration NGOs who take advantage of the tragedies.” “Europe, take action,” added Alessandro Battilocchio, a deputy for Forza Italia [Silvio Berlusconi’s party] and in charge of the Department of Immigration of the blue movement.

The Day

Look at what has happened. In the course of a few hours, more than one thousand migrants have arrived on the island of Pelagie in 9 different waves. The last two between noon and one pm. First, a patrol boat of the Captain of the Port brought 97 migrants to the commercial pier, of various ethnicities, all men, intercepted two nautical miles from Lampedusa on a wooden boat, 10 meters long, with an outboard motor. Less than one hour later, a patrol boat of the Guardia di Finanza escorted 38 Tunisian migrants to Favaloro pier, including two women and a child, who were found on a wooden boat of about 8 meters. In the fifth of seven disembarkations brought to Favaloro pier, 398 migrants of various nationalities, among them 24 women and 6 children, who were found on a broken-down fishing boat.

The Reactions

“Alarming situations,” says Nicola Molteni, Undersecretary of Interior, at Agrigento today for the beatification of Rosario Livatino, who asks for “a European response, totally absent today.” All the migrants have been taken to the hotspot of the island, which was empty and has rapidly been refilled to the limit. “I heard from the Ministry of Interior, and they told me that the quarantine ships have left,” the mayor of Lampedusa, Toto Martello, says to Corriere. “Just one thing: Let’s not talk about this thing as if it were an emergency; it is not, it was all foreseen and predictable.”

Jihad in Rambouillet: Yet Another Mentally Disturbed Attacker

As reported here last Friday, a “lone wolf” attacker stabbed a French policewoman to death at police headquarters in the town of Rambouillet. As is often the case, what might appear to an unsophisticated observer to be a jihad attack is in fact something entirely different: mental illness. An immigrant youth endures so much racial and religious discrimination that the stress pushes him over the edge, inducing him to commit an isolated act of violence, using religious sentiments as a pretext.

Below is a follow-up report on last week’s attack. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Paris Match:

Rambouillet attack: A radicalized assailant with “personality disorders”

April 25, 2021

[Photo caption: Attack committed at Rambouillet 22 April 2021]

The profile of the killer of the fatal attack committed Friday at Rambouillet is becoming clearer little by little.

The fatal attack Friday against an officer at the Rambouillet police headquarters, near Paris, was committed by a 36-year-old Tunisian, whose radicalization “seems hardly contestable” and who presents “certain personality troubles”, indicated the anti-terrorist prosecutor Sunday.

“Several elements substantiate the tracking of the path of this resident of Rambouillet, radicalized within a few months,” announced National Anti-Terrorist Prosecutor Jean-Francois Richard to the press.

A “rapid search” of the telephone of the attacker, Jamel Gorchene, revealed “that he had, immediately prior to proceeding to the act, consulted videos of religious chants glorifying martyrdom and jihad,” he stated.

The prosecutor also referred to his posts on Facebook going back to last fall which revealed “an adherence to an ideology legitimizing violence against those who have offended the Prophet.”

“A Koran” and “a prayer rug” seized

Thus, “On 24 October 2020, a few days after the murder of Samuel Paty (by an Islamist in the department of Yvelines), the perpetrator joined a campaign of support for the Prophet in the face of offenses allegedly committed against him,” stressed Mr. Ricard.

“A Koran” and “a prayer rug” were seized in his scooter and his basket. And, shortly before the incident, a video surveillance camera filmed the assailant heading to a “provisional prayer room”, without the images confirming that he directly entered it. He was seen re-entering the city center a little more than an hour later.

“If the radicalization of the attacker seems hardly contestable, the presence of certain personality disorders can also be observed,” Mr. Ricard revealed. In police custody, the Jamel Gorchene’s father evoked his son’s “rigorous practice of Islam” and “behavioral disorders” observed at home “at the beginning of the year”.

He had undergone two psychiatric consultations at the Rambouillet hospital in February. However, “his condition did not require either hospitalization or treatment,” Mr. Ricard reported.

Tunisia, whose collaboration is being solicited by France in this case, has “energetically” condemned the attack in a statement from its embassy. It denounces a “barbaric act occurring in the middle of the month of Ramadan, the holy month which invokes, rather, the values of tolerance and brotherhood between individuals.”

“We hadn’t detected signs of radicalization”

At 14:25 on Friday, Jamel Gorchene, “wearing headphones”, stabbed Stephanie M., a 49-year-old administrative officer who had no weapon or uniform, in the abdomen and throat, when she was in the security area of the police station. According to witnesses, the assailant cried “Allahu Akhbar”.

In response, a police brigadier fired two shots at the attacker, who refused “to drop the knife”, “a blade of 22 centimeters”. Falling to the floor, he threw the knife in the direction of the police officers, according to the prosecutor.

A fifth person, a cousin of Jamel Gorchene, was placed in custody Sunday. His father who lived with him, a couple who housed him (according to records), and another cousin have already been in custody since Friday and Saturday.

And the Beat Goes On

The cultural enrichment beat, that is.

Below are four recent articles about various aspects of the migrant invasion of Europe. The first article (translated by Hellequin GB) concerns a deadly attack by a Syrian culture-enricher in Berlin. The report doesn’t make it clear, but I suspect that both his victims were also culture-enrichers.

Translator’s note:

I couldn’t find the article from the Berliner Zeitung, but the gist is clear: another case of Cultural Enrichment.

The word “colorful” in the title (German Bunte) is a reference to multiculturalism, roughly equivalent to the way “rainbow” was used in the USA before it was co-opted by LGBT.

The article from PolitikStube:

Colorful capital: Attack on two Berliners, one dead, one seriously injured — Syrian (30) arrested

In the politically correct police report from April 20, 2021 it says: Emergency services arrested a 30-year-old man yesterday evening. He is suspected of having killed a 56-year-old man in his apartment on Huttenstrasse in Moabit. The 56-year-old was found lifeless in a room in his apartment around 8:40 a.m. yesterday. The situation and the injury pattern indicated a homicide.

The arrested person is also suspected of having tried to kill a 56-year-old man in his apartment on Neue Schönhauser Strasse in (Berlin) Mitte. The investigations into both cases are ongoing and are being led by the Third Murder Commission of the State Criminal Police Office and the Berlin Public Prosecutor’s Office. The 30-year-old suspect is due to be brought before a judge today.

The Berliner Zeitung reports in more detail: The suspect is a Syrian national who is said to have attacked two Berliners in their apartments. The Berlin public prosecutor’s office obtained the suspect’s temporary placement in a closed psychiatric facility.

Article #2 is from the conservative Austrian site Unzensuriert, and was translated by Gary Fouse:

“Closed borders” are only for Austrians: New asylum record in the first quarter of 2021

[Caption: Still in vivid memory: 2015/16 tens of thousands of illegals stormed our country. If the interior minister still cannot protect our borders, we will soon be back.]

In the flood of daily media Corona numbers game — and fear-making mode — other, potentially much more dangerous reports are lost — some on the topic of massively increasing illegal migration to Austria. The assurances of ÖVP-interior minister Karl Nehammer aside, the “social travelers”, particularly in the past year, did not adhere to his “total border closure” and came into the country in large numbers, largely unhindered. 14,200 asylum applications were counted to the end of the year, the first increase since 2015, and then by an impressive 12% (versus 2019).

In March, 90% more illegals than last year

It is likely to get worse this year, as even the Kurier cannot conceal. By the end of the first quarter, end of March, according to the Federal Interior Ministry, there were already 5,024 applications nationwide — that is an increase from the previous year of an impressive 42%. In a monthly comparison, there were, in March 2021, 90% more illegal social migrants compared with March 2020, who merrily streamed over the “closed” borders of our land.

In spite of the end of the war, Syrians continue to lead the way

And it is always the same, those who come. Also this year, the lion’s share are Syrians (2,267 applications), who have the greatest chance of recognition, although the civil war in Syria in a wide part of the country has for a year been all but ended and the bombed county needs every young man for the rebuilding of houses, businesses, and infrastructure. Because it is mostly young men who seek our protection (82% of those who traveled here).

It is almost all Muslim males

And it is almost without exception Muslims, who are hardly compatible with our Western value system. Behind the Syrians are the Afghans and Moroccans (the latter have little chance of asylum, but are no longer accepted by their country in case of deportation). Behind those are found Iraqis, Turks, and Somalis. 554 of the uninvited guests were (allegedly) “unaccompanied minors”.

Suspension of asylum rights as the only way out

What that means for the security of our country and our citizens is reported regularly by Unzensuriert. The only way out of this hopeless situation would be the suspension of asylum rights, long-demanded (unfortunately only) by the FPÖ, which, with the prevailing pandemic in the face of unvetted and uncontrolled travelers, in the sense of public health, should be easy to argue.

Austria has the most illegals in the EU, Hungary the fewest

In addition, the economic migrants cross several safe countries on their way to the most lucrative European social paradises before they reach Austria. Speaking of Austria. While the asylum numbers have risen exorbitantly in Austria in spite of “Corona closures”, in the rest of the EU, they were significantly reduced in the previous year (416,000 applications in the 27 member nations, the lowest since 2013). Every fourth application succeeded in Germany (which, by the way, is exclusively surrounded by safe countries). The lowest number of illegal entries was in Hungary.

Islam: Western Leaders Are Well Deceived

Islam: Western Leaders Are Well Deceived

by Michael Copeland

Islam has a sinister feature that is insufficiently known in the West: authorised deception. This has an Arabic name, taqiyya, and features as “Permissible Lying” in the Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, r8. The Muslim Brotherhood’s secret Explanatory Memorandum, captured in a police raid, instructs on “Using deception to mask intended goals”. “Taqiyya permeates almost all the activities and dealings of Muslims with non-Muslim societies…”, explains Sam Solomon, former professor of Sharia law. After all, one of Allah’s ninety-nine names is “The Greatest of Deceivers”.

“If you want to know about Islam”, writes Paul Wilkinson, “Do not talk to Muslims”. You are likely to be given a misleading account. British Prime Ministers Blair and Cameron were both advised by the smooth-talking serial liar Tariq Ramadan. He is the likely source of their bold confident statements on Islam, which, though made with a great air of authority, are hopelessly erroneous. The West’s politicians, of course, as Pat Condell observes, are all Islamic scholars: “They are, aren’t they?”

“After every atrocity committed in the name of Islam,” said Geert Wilders, “Barack Obama, David Cameron, Angela Merkel and my own Prime Minister [Rutte] rush to the television cameras to declare that these acts have nothing to do with Islam.

“How stupid do they think we are?”

Jamie Glazov, in Jihadist Psychopath, writes, “Some kind of “pressure” is in the air — a pressure that ensures that after every jihadist attack, we call the attack everything but what it actually is. We are to ascribe many different motives to the perpetrators, except the very motives that they themselves have candidly identified.”

A commenter, CogitoErgoSum, observes, “Seems to me that… all of the leaders in the West are practicing wishful thinking. These people are hoping that if they repeat something often enough it will become accepted by the masses.”

David Wood complains, “The only response… is to say, over and over again, that real Islam promotes peace and tolerance… Hence, what British leaders are doing is actually worse than doing nothing. They are actively protecting and promoting the ideology that calls for the violence.”

The Litany of Denial

Western politicians, and judges too, show how well deceived they are when they make authoritative pronouncements denying any link between Islamic State and Islam, likewise when they confidently repeat that terrorists have distorted Islam. Both are successful products of taqiyya deception.

“…there is… nothing whatsoever about ISIL that is related to Islam.” — John Kerry, US Secretary of State, 12 Oct 2014

“I refuse to call them the Islamic State, because they are neither Islamic or a state.” — Hillary Clinton

“They have nothing to do with the great religion of Islam” — David Cameron

The Food Sucks! Room Service is Slow!

The Canary Islands continue to be a major transshipment point for African migrants trying to make their way to Europe. When they don’t get transported quickly enough, or when the accommodations do not meet up to their expectations, the culture-enrichers tend to get a little testy.

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

From the star hotel to the migrant camp — Tenerife: Violent protests over the poor quality of the food

The Canary Islands are increasingly developing into an escape route for illegal migrants from Africa and are recording dramatic arrival figures. The mood in Tenerife is accordingly heated, not only among the islanders, but also among the illegal migrants, as the transfer to the mainland and the onward journey to the destination country did not take place as planned and they are now stuck in the warehouse.

But the frustration does not only affect being stuck on the island: After arrival, thousands of illegals were accommodated in hotels, some of them 4-star hotels, and now many adventurers have had to leave the paradisiacal accommodations and move to reception camps. Not only are the days of well-equipped apartments and hotel rooms over, apparently also those of the buffets, because the food in the migrant camp is of poor quality and triggers conflicts in the dining room…

Brutal confrontation last Saturday afternoon between a group of immigrants, who were temporarily housed in hotels in Maspalomas and Mogán, in the Las Raíces detention center, and the security guards at the center, who had to seek help from the local and national police afterwards the tension inside had increased due to protests from inmates about the shortage and poor quality of the food. The police arrested seven people in the clashes.

The protests turned violent, and the NGO Accem, which manages the facilities, had to alert the authorities to send reinforcements to control the situation after a confrontation broke out between migrants and the centre’s security guards.

The coexistence in Las Raíces between the different groups of migrants becomes more and more complicated as the weeks go by, as the different nationalities mix in the center with the people who gradually arrive.

Jihadis Taking British and American Kafirs for Profit

There has recently been a lot of talk on both sides of the Atlantic about the payment of reparations for slavery. The following essay by Michael Copeland examines the history of slave-taking by Muslims of white Europeans and Americans.

Jihadis Taking British and American Kafirs for Profit

by Michael Copeland

“Muslims have a long shared history with Britain,” says an imam in a 2017 video produced by — yes, really — Lincolnshire Police. He shows Arabic coins and traded objects to prove it. The video is in-your-face propaganda for Islam, courtesy of the taxpayer. Michael Blackburn is critical:

BRITAIN’S POLICE FORCES seem to have agreed amongst themselves that their real purpose is not deterring crime and catching criminals but pulling increasingly embarrassing stunts in public to signal their political virtue…

Conflating the presence of a few traders and traded objects with the idea of a profound interconnectedness of cultures is ridiculous.

The criticism is valid. In a rather different way, though, Islam has had a long history with Britain, not so much “shared” as “inflicted”. This was in jihadi raids on the coast that took British kafirs for profit.

Islamic Raids for Kafir Captives

The story of Islamic raids on Britain’s coast is one of repeated trauma, pain, and suffering. Almost forgotten today, it is the shocking roll call of unprovoked attacks on Britain’s defenceless coastal villages and fishermen at sea. These forays were made by armed sea-borne jihadis to abduct British working men and women for profit. The raids continued for years.

The taking of captives in Islam is in direct fulfilment of the Koran’s instructions, all of which form part of Islamic law. Mohammedans are “the best of peoples raised up for mankind” (3:110). Kafirs are “the worst of creatures” (98:6): they are “ever to you a clear enemy” (4:101), who have to be fought against and subjugated (9:5, 8:39). Their territory is Dar al Harb, the Realm of War, where jihad, “warfare against non-Muslims”, is “a communal obligation” (Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, o9.0, o9.1). Kafirs are legally available to be taken by force in jihad.

The coastal predators of Britain were mujahidin from the Barbary States of North Africa and from Turkey, doing what their ideology commands — abducting kafirs because they are kafirs:

“Seize them, confine them”,

orders Koran 9:5. As Robert Spencer points out, “The primary market for slaves among Muslims was for non-Muslims, as enslaving fellow Muslims was considered a violation of the Qur’an’s requirement to be “merciful to one another” (48:29). That same Koranic verse, however, also commands being “ruthless to the kafir”. Slave-taking is legitimised to this day by Islam’s hostile rules. The jihad doctrine is, as Al Azhar explains, “a permanent war institution” against all kafirs.


Captives make lucrative spoils. They can be sold for labour, the women as concubines, and can bring in ransom money, another action authorised by Islamic law, in Koran 47:4:

Culture-Enriching Gang Rape in the Canary Islands

The rambunctious “youths” of Gran Canaria are at it again with their culture-enriching shenanigans in their new home.

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

Gran Canaria: Gang rape of a 36-year-old woman — four North Africans arrested

In the town of Puerto Rico on Gran Canaria, part of the municipality of Mogán, the handcuffs clicked on four migrants yesterday. The men of Maghrebian origin are accused of raping a 36-year-old woman in a local park on Friday.

As reported by La Provincia, the victim is an Irish national who has lived with her family in the community for years. After the incident, the woman first went to a health center and filed a complaint with the doctor’s report on Sunday.

Thanks to a good personal description, all four men who recently came illegally on a boat to Gran Canaria were arrested yesterday on Monday. They previously lived in tourist facilities in the municipalities of San Bartolomé de Tirajana and Mogán but were expelled from there. One of them was no stranger to the officials. He has already had several relevant criminal records.

Lockdowns Are Halal

Ashraf Ramelah sends this report on the response of Islamic law to COVID-19 restrictions.

Islamic Shariah embraces Covid-19 controls: Compliance guarantees paradise

By Dr. Ashraf Ramelah

More than a year ago, the world began its battle with an invisible enemy — the novel Covid-19 virus. The fight resulted in a crisis in health care, the economy, the family and much more. While controversy over its magnitude and even its existence rages on and exploitation of the numbers continues, money is made and societies are engineered. In the Arab-Muslim part of the world, Islam further capitalizes on the authoritarian controls of the current pandemic event in place to handle the virus spread and seems to relish the expansion of top-down oppression in the Western world.

For the Egyptian Fatwa House, the Shariah legal body, affirmation of the appropriate enforcement of government mask mandates, social distancing and lockdowns comes with a further control mechanism — the edict — created by the Shariah council to be the final piece of compliance. Adding the spiritual realm to the medical environment, the following edict was issued late last year (Nov 24, 2020). It will remain in effect indefinitely:

“Wearing a mask and following the decisions of the competent authorities at the time of epidemics is a legitimate duty; In order to protect souls and ward off the negative consequences of not adhering to them.” (emphasis added).

With this edict, social controls are now converted to religion with a moral impact upon the soul. Contradicting Covid-19 orders has dire eternal consequences. Coming as a faith directive, “protect souls” is literal, and “ward off the negative consequences” means avoiding eternal damnation. An irrefutable religious law, the current edict commands obedience to secular, government mandates (legal or illegal) with a reward in heaven when followed and, more troubling, an afterlife penalty when not.

Turning the virus pandemic into a matter of the soul would seem to be the logical reason for the Islamic religious institute to issue such a statement, although the language in the continued quote reveals a more material, ideological interest.

Religious authorities are attaching the well-being of the public to arbitrary, mandated rules that control human interaction and function as the Shariah. Controlling the will of an individual in the process of seeking to curtail the spread of a virus is real power. Controls on human behavior are both relatable and significant for the Fatwa House religious authorities who are in charge of creating and issuing edicts.

The Fatwa House spokesperson continues with the edict:

Egyptian Court Favors Islamists: Al Sisi’s Statement to Macron Justifies Verdict

Below is the latest report by Ashraf Ramelah on the plight of Egyptian Copts.

Egyptian court favors Islamists: Al Sisi’s statement to Macron justifies verdict

by Dr. Ashraf Ramelah

Nearly five years ago now, I wrote about a courageous Coptic Christian woman and a brave Coptic Bishop who stood with her and her son in the “Bedouin arbitration” court after she fell victim to a heinous crime.

As justice is never served through the “Bedouin” process of arbitration, shortly thereafter the woman and her son brought a civil lawsuit against the perpetrators in the state court. This past December 2020, her case was lost in favor of Islamists. The religious deep state found the offenders innocent, and the court set them free.

The handing down of the acquittal judgment was the final act in the prolonged Al Karm village drama and eradicated any hope of healing sectarian differences among Egyptians. The verdict showed the decadence and indecency inhabiting Egyptian society. In conjunction with an unrelated statement made by Egypt’s president earlier the same month, this case revealed Egypt’s ugly truth.

It began with collective punishment and expiation in the streets

Al Karm is a small, miserable village in the Al Minya Governorate, which is one of the poorest governorates in Egypt. In Al Karm village, as in other parts of the country, Muslims and Christians live as neighbors. The common denominator of its villagers is simplicity of life permeated with poverty and ignorance. Such conditions aid in the diffusion of Salafi fundamentalists and Muslim Brotherhood influencers that are able to control behavior and handle religious matters.

In July 2016, a rumor started everything. It circulated that a relationship existed between a Christian man and Muslim woman — unacceptable to the Muslim community. Seeking reparations, a religious mob struck back.

After the targeted man was seized by the radicals and arrested by the police, his mother, a woman in her 70s, was stripped naked, dragged from her home and paraded through the village streets. As the mother of a Coptic man who had been convicted in the court of public opinion for a religious crime, she paid a dear price.

During this humiliating and brutal exercise the mob screamed “Allahu Akhbar,” signaling great satisfaction as if winning an Islamic invasion (Gazwa). State authorities and Al Azhar Sunni Institute both turned a blind eye. There were no statements of condemnation coming from either direction.

“Peace and tolerance” in the international media

Despite the benign image of Islam portrayed by Al Azhar propaganda around the world, local mosques in Egypt steadfastly continue to spew “hate speech” embedded in prayers against Christians and Jews through open-air mics blasting the streets during weekly Friday services.

December court ruling and Al Sisi’s morality lesson to France that same month

During their press conference in France on Dec 6, 2020, the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi offered a morality lesson to President Emmanuel Macron when a journalist asked each of them for his vision concerning religion and social issues. Macron responded:

“We consider the human value to be the most important of all … Any person has the right to choose the religion he wants to believe in … The religious issue should not be related to the political issue.”

Al Sisi countered Macron by stating that:
