“There is no Difference Between Islam and Political Islam”

The following video shows excerpts from Muslim protest at the French embassy in Stockholm last Friday. The man who is interviewed couldn’t be clearer: there is no such thing as “political Islam”. He evidently agrees with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan — Islam is Islam, and that’s it.

Gary Fouse, who translated the video for subtitles, provides these background notes:

The name of the speaker is Imam Muhsin Asinger, who is interviewed by Samhällsnytt. He then speaks to his followers in what seems to be a combination of Swedish and Arabic. The interview and the Koranic chants are in Arabic with Swedish subtitles, which I translated into English.

Hizb ut-Tahrir in Denmark: We Will Never Surrender to Your False and Deceptive Freedom of Speech

Hizb ut-Tahrir is a devout Islamic organization whose stated goal is the establishment of a worldwide Caliphate. Its representatives openly and unabashedly proclaim their supremacist ambitions. It has been banned in a number of “moderate” Islamic countries, but is still legal in most of the West. Its largest public gatherings are held in Denmark, Canada, Australia, and the United States.

The following video shows excerpts from a recent HuT rally in front of the national legislature, in which the faithful proclaim their fervent support for their brethren in France who are being oppressed by the authorities in reaction to the beheading of Samuel Paty.

Goodbye, America. It Was Good to Know You.

The following essay by Henrik Clausen has been translated by the author from the Danish version, which was published earlier today by the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten.

Goodbye, America. It was good to know you.

by Henrik Clausen

I grew up with America and lots of good things coming from there. An America with a constitution written by fine people, an America with movies and stories about the Wild West, an America that saved us from the atrocities of the National Socialists. I recall watching the lunar landings on my grandparents’ television, and listened to Doors, Hendrix and Janis Joplin coming out of the old tube radio.

Back in the 1970s, America’s global influence was as remarkable as it is today. The US was entangled in a strange war in Vietnam, with painful accounts of war in the jungle and civilian suffering reaching us. I rejoiced when President Nixon showed that the threat from China was not really that great and that the United States could pull out. OK, so the Chinese had a communist regime. With good alliances with Japan, Korea, etc., the threat was manageable.

Together with my parents, I had the extraordinary experience of living in Iran in the late 1970s, “an island of stability” in the chaotic Middle East. The close ties between Iran and the United States guaranteed stability and the rapid development of the country. However, that lasted only until President Jimmy Carter, under the pretext of ‘human rights’, let down Emperor Pahlavi and opened the gates of revolution for a brutal Islamic regime. A regime that poses a security problem even up to today.

I followed the changes in the 1980s, when a proud and confident President Reagan pulled the United States out of inflation and decay. Reagan had campaigned on the economy as his main issue, but soon realized that the threat of nuclear war with the Soviet Union was severe, and had to be dealt with. In particular, I recall the Reykjavik Summit in 1986 and praying intensely that they would find a solution to the nuclear tensions. It did not happen there, but a few years later the threat disappeared with the collapse of the Soviet Union.

But darker sides of American foreign policy also emerged. US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger tolerated Turkey’s invasion of Cyprus, where a third of the island is still occupied. President Carter politicized the Olympic Games after his security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski provoked the Soviet Union to send its army into Afghanistan. And President Clinton kept his election promise to bomb Serbia, even though Serbia constituted no threat to the United States.

All of that paled, however, on September 11th 2001, when Islamists attacked America. It was without question that we would stand with America to eliminate the efforts of Islamists trying to spread Islam and Sharia. Here in Denmark, we did our part. Not only with practical military support on dangerous missions, but also by way of art and humor. Danish artists entered the fray for freedom of expression, and despite a massive diplomatic crisis, we stood our ground in our right to mock and ridicule what we find deserving.

Like many others, I used to consume large amounts of American culture. The carefully crafted Disney movies provided unforgettable cinema experiences. The Little House on the Prairie books were devoured quickly, spending only a few days on each volume. Later, I marveled at the subtle family drama of The Godfather, absorbed “Thirteen Days” (about the Cuba crisis) and JFK (the John F. Kennedy), and many other important movies. Even today, driving down an open highway, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Bruce Springsteen move me to tears.

But these days the United States is in serious trouble. The country has fallen into the trap called the “Triffin Dilemma”: Having the dollar as the global reserve currency requires massive trade deficits, and has led to decades of shrinking manufacturing in the US proper, all while finance and services have been expanding disproportionately. It is my personal suspicion that the unrest that has shocked the United States this year may be due more to poor living conditions, not the ‘racism’ alleged by leftist political leaders.

To Mask or Not to Mask, Part 2

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from the German-language service of RT:

Study on the effectiveness of masks remains unpublished

A large-scale study in Denmark to investigate the effectiveness of wearing masks in terms of COVID-19 containment was rejected and not published by several prestigious medical journals. The study’s authors indicated that the results were “uncomfortable” for the status quo. The journals The Lancet, The New England Journal of Medicine and The Journal of the American Medical Association all rejected the study.

6,000 Danes participated in the study, which began in late April. Half of them were asked to wear a mask at all times in public places. The other half were instructed not to cover their faces. After a month, the participants were tested both for corona infection and for antibodies to the virus.

The researchers who led the study remained silent about their findings, but provided a variety of indications that it was the outcome of the study, and not the methodology, that led to the rejection of the study. Christian Torp-Pedersen, a professor and the chief physician in the research department at North Zealand Hospital, told the Danish daily Berlingske:

We can’t begin to discuss what was unsatisfactory for them [the medical journals]. To do this, we would need to explain what the study reveals. And we don’t want to discuss that until the study is published.

Another member of the study administration emailed New York Times reporter Alex Berenson that the results would be published “as soon as a journal is brave enough to publish the study.”

In Denmark it is currently mandatory to wear a mask as soon as you leave the table, in public transport and in bars and restaurants.

There are rampant discussions around the world about the mask requirement and whether wearing a mask might curb the spread of the virus. Japanese researchers recently published a study that found that masks offered some degree of protection from COVID-19 particles in the air, but even wearing high quality, professional face coverings couldn’t eliminate the risk of infection.

Interestingly, particularly at the beginning of the “Corona crisis”, many health experts spoke out against a far-reaching mandate that the general public wear a mask, and described such measures as ineffective. For example, Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of the White House COVID-19 Task Force, insisted in an interview in March that there was no reason for apparently healthy people to “walk around in masks.”

Culture-Enriching Robbery at Knifepoint

Earlier this month I reported on a Somali ghetto known as “Little Mogadishu” in the Swedish town of Borlänge. Many international students who lived in the neighborhood expressed their desire to escape from the crime-intensive Somali enrichment —they must have been WAYCISTS. What other explanation could there be?

The story below is a follow-up about Borlänge. Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from Fria Tider:

Three days after Löfven’s visit to Tjärna Ängar — Robbery at knifepoint of large sum of money

October 24, 2020

A 25-year-old man was robbed at knifepoint in the immigrant-dense area of Tjärna Ängar in Borlänge, also called “Little Mogadishu”. Under the threat of a knife, the man was forced to withdraw a large sum of money.

On Wednesday Prime Minister Stefan Löfven visited the Somali ghetto Tjärna Ängar in Borlänge, which is characterized by crime and great insecurity.

His visit came after international students who were placed in student apartments in the ghetto became so frightened that they wanted to move to the center of Borlänge.

Löfven stated that “many are proud to live here,” according to Aftonbladet.

But early Saturday morning another serious crime occurred in the area.

About 5am police were alerted that a 25-year-old man was subjected to a robbery outside a boutique in Tjärna Ängar.

“Two men, unknown to the victim, approached him, threatened him with something that was perceived to be a knife and forced him to withdraw a large sum of money from an ATM. The men then left the scene,” police write on their web site.

The incident is being classified as a robbery. There are no suspects.

Joe’s a Shoo-in Now!

The Swedish matinee idol Greta Thunberg has thrown her sustainable solar-powered weight behind Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. With that endorsement, his election on November 3 becomes a sure thing.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from Aftonbladet:

Greta Thunberg takes a stand in American politics

Climate activist Greta Thunberg is making an exception to her line of not interfering in politics. In a tweet on Saturday, she urges Americans to vote for Democrat Joe Biden in the presidential election on November 3.

She justifies the exception on the grounds that the election in the USA goes beyond normal politics, especially from a climate perspective, and writes, “Organize yourselves and get everyone to vote for #Biden.”

The 17-year-old has something to say to Biden’s opponent, President Donald Trump. When Time Magazine named Thunberg as Person of the Year 2019, Trump mocked her in a tweet:

“So ridiculous. Greta needs to take care of her aggression problem and go see a good old movie with a friend. Relax, Greta, relax!” wrote the Republican president (TT)

Sweden is a Haven for the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe

Al-Ikhwan Al-Muslimeen, more commonly known as the Muslim Brotherhood, is the Salafist organization behind CAIR and other jihad groups in the USA. In 1991 the Ikhwan issued the infamous Explanatory Memorandum, which became public during the Holy Land Foundation trial in 2008:

The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.

Amazingly enough, European countries have begun to crack down on the Muslim Brotherhood. But not Sweden — not yet.

Pressure increases on Islamic Relief in Europe — Sweden still a free zone

Europe’s dominant countries and economies are now increasing pressure and restrictions on the Muslim Brotherhood’s support organization, Islamic Relief. Sweden though is going its own way and appears to be giving the MB’s front and network organizations a free zone.

The MB’s network and front organizations are currently under strong pressure. In Sweden, the pressure, especially from associate professors Aje Carlbom and Magnus Ranstorp, as well as the analyst Peder Hyllengren, has become so strong that the student union, Ibn Rushd, is now making changes in its statutes and has removed one of its paragraphs that formally binds it with the MB’s structure. Personal connections with the MB, however, remain for the time being, as far as is known.

Without this external pressure, this would not have occurred. Nor did the Education Council, which is responsible for giving out government grants to the study association, react earlier, despite having ten years to identify the connections. The action follows an earlier known pattern from the MB’s network organizations — It is only when they themselves become convinced of the facts that they carry out any adjustments.

Culture-Enriching School Days in Borlänge

Here’s yet another Somali success story from Sweden. It should be noted that Borlänge has a neighborhood dubbed “Little Mogadishu” by the locals, just like Minneapolis.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from Fria Tider:

International students’ shock: This isn’t Sweden — compared to a war-torn land

October 5, 2020

International students at the Dalarna University in Borlänge do not want to live in the student residence which is offered to them in the immigrant suburb Tjärna Ängar, which is commonly called “Little Mogadishu”. That is what a representative for Dalarna’s student union wrote in a letter to the university’s board.

In 2005 the community housing company Tunabyggen in Borlänge converted two multiple-family homes in Somali-dense Tjärna Ängar into “Locus”— a student complex with a gym, study spaces, and 126 student apartments, in order to remedy the shortage of student residences in the city.

A second student housing area with another 59 student apartments lies in an adjacent building. The residence is marketed by Tunabyggen’s communal home page as a “multicultural residential area”. Together they make up more than two-thirds of the city’s student housing.

But the students don’t want to live in them.

The university’s rector contacted the municipality four years ago, in connection with a woman being raped, and demanded that they arrange other student housing in the municipality that wasn’t located in Tjärna Ängar. Not the least because female students felt unsafe in the immigrant-dense suburb.

“This is unacceptable. Students must be offered a residence when they are accepted, or at least at the beginning of instruction. The housing’s general standard must be reviewed, and above all, students must be able to feel safe and not worry about their personal security. Nothing else can be discussed,” said the rector, Marita Hilliges, at that time.

A Sweden Democrats Cap? You Must Die!

“He is a racist, he has an SD cap”: Mohamad’s play before he murdered Tommie Lindh

September 29, 2020

[Photo caption: Abubaker Mohamad Awad mocked and grimaced before police camera when he was arrested after rape and murder. On the right: Shelf in Tommie Lindh’s living room.]

Abubaker Mohamad Awad accused Tommie Lindh of being a racist, because he had an SD [Sweden Democrats] cap in his apartment. He then stabbed the 19-year-old and raped the victim’s girlfriend in the dying Tommie’s blood.

The extensive investigation that the police conducted after the murder of Tommie Lindh in Härnösand on May 10 of this year has now been released.

It appears that the accused, Abubaker Mohamad Awad, just before the murder, had reacted to the fact that Lindh had an SD cap in his apartment where a late party was being held.

The accused 23-year-old had come into the room where Tommie Lindh’s girlfriend slept on several occasions, although she had asked him to leave her alone.

The African finally demanded that the young girl explain why Tommie Lindh had an SD cap on the shelf in the hall.

“And then I explained to Abubaker that Tommie was very involved in politics and thought that it was interesting. He then called Tommie a racist and so on,” the woman said during questioning.

The African then began to accuse the woman of being a racist, and when she said that she wasn’t, he explained that he could not trust her.

“Then he got even angrier. Then he said again if I didn’t stand up, he would kill Tommie and me,” said the rape victim.

Rasmus Paludan, Most Wanted Infidel

Rasmus Paludan, the founder of the Danish Islam-critical party Stram Kurs (Hard Line), has joined Geert Wilders, Kurt Westergaard, Lars Vilks, Salman Rushdie, Molly Norris, Flemming Rose, Terry Jones, and other notorious infidels on the Al Qaeda hit list.

In the following interview, Mr. Paludan talks to Vlad Tepes a (thank you, RAIR Foundation) about his inclusion in this illustrious cohort of “Islamophobes”:

Ingrid and Maria: Neither of Us Will Ever Be Silenced!

Ingrid Carlqvist and Maria Celander are Swedish journalists who have become virtual outcasts for their politically incorrect opinions, especially those concerning Islam. They are now considered unacceptable “extremists” by mainstream outlets, so they collaborate on a website, “Ingrid and Maria” (Ingrid och Maria). I posted one of their reports in August of 2019.

Full disclosure: I know both of these estimable ladies. I’ve met Ingrid several times, most notably when she gave the country report on Sweden at the second Counterjihad Brussels conference back in 2012. I’ve never met Maria in person, but we have worked together on a number of virtual transatlantic projects over the years.

Ingrid and Maria were notified recently that they have been indicted for “hate speech” — hets mot folkgrupp, which translates roughly as “incitement against a group of people”. Their “crime” was to publish an op-ed about concerns over the employment of large numbers of Muslims who fill prescriptions in Swedish pharmacies.

Below is an interview with Ingrid and Maria about their upcoming court appearance. Many thanks to Tania Groth for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

A Sexual Emergency in a Swedish Swimming Pool

This story from Sweden reminds me of the notorious incident in Austria back in 2016 when a culture-enricher defended his rape of a child in a swimming pool by saying that he had experienced a “sexual emergency”. In that case, however, the victim was a little boy.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from Samhällsnytt:

Appellate court saves Afghan pedophile who raped 11-year-old girl

Recently the appellate court upheld a district court judgment against an older Afghan man who, among other things, raped an 11-year-old girl in a swimming pool The prosecutor, who had appealed the judgment and asked for deportation, was not given a hearing for his request — this because deportation is only for special reasons.

In mid-December, Samhällsnytt drew attention to 51-year-old Ahmad Motmain and the rape he committed against an 11-year-old girl. Motmain immigrated from Afghanistan in 2003 — that is 17 years ago, but he has not yet learned good Swedish.

During his stay in Sweden he has been chairman of an Afghan association, which among other things, works to stop deportation of migrants who lack a reason for asylum. The association advises on its website that they are financed from government contributions.

On December 11 Motmain was sentenced by the Gothenburg District Court to prison for two years and five months for rape against a child, sexual abuse against a child, and two counts of sexual molestation. The police investigation showed that Motmain, over a period of several years, committed crimes against children ages 5-11.

In one of the cases, which occurred in the indoor swimming pool in Angered in 2016, Motmain made contact with an 11-year-old girl who was there with friends. The Afghan migrant offered to teach the girl to swim by practicing leg strokes apart from the others in the swimming pool.

The girl was instructed to hold onto the edge of the pool and practice leg strokes while the man held her with his hands on her breasts and penetrating her vagina with his fingers. The man further asked the young girl if she “could have sex”.

No deportation

After the district court, both the prosecutor and Motmain appealed the verdict to the appellate court for Western Sweden. The prosecutor asked the appellate court to increase the penalty and also to deport Motmain with a prohibition on his returning to Sweden for 15 years.

Instead, the appellate court decided to acquit Motmain on the two counts of sexual molestation. At the same time the sentence of two years and five months was affirmed. The appellate court also rejected the prosecutor’s request for deportation.

The rejection is not because there are any general or personal hindrances to the enforcement of deportation to Afghanistan. The reason is rather because Motmain has family in Sweden, and he has held permanent resident status since 2013.

The appellate court refers to Chapter 8-3 of the Alien Law, which states that those who have resided in Sweden for at least four years with permanent resident status can only be deported if there are special reasons. Those, according to the court, do not exist in this case.

Koran-Burning in Rinkeby

The Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby is one of the most culturally enriched neighborhoods in Sweden, possibly second only to Rosengård in Malmö. A group of stalwart Islamophobes were thus acting with great courage when they burned a Koran in Rinkeby a few days ago.

As I understand it, another copy of the eternal uncreated word of Allah has been incinerated in Gothenburg since then, but I haven’t seen any video yet of that particular sacrilege.

I note with interest that the Koran-burners in Rinkeby say they are from Stram Kurs (Hard Line), the Danish party founded by Rasmus Paludan. I assume these guys are Swedish, but my non-Scandinavian ear is unable to determine which language they are speaking.

If You Didn’t Want Islam, You Shouldn’t Have Imported Us!

As reported here last week, supporters of Rasmus Paludan recently abused a Koran in the Rosengård district of the southern Swedish city of Malmö. The culture-enriching “New Swedes” of Malmö responded by expressing their youthful exuberance in traditional activities such as burning cars and attacking retail businesses.

The following video shows a the reaction of a group of culture-enrichers, led by a female firebrand, to the impudent infidels who mistreated the Koran. The Arabic dialogue has been translated from the Swedish subtitles.
