The Day Women Burn Their Uniforms en Masse, Islam Collapses

Many thanks to LN for translating this op-ed from Snaphanen:

How Islam is broken down

by Lars Hedegaard

Alleged feminists agitate for female cover-up as a right for women. Just as slaves have the right to wear shackles.

Unrest continues in Iran, where residents fed up with clerical rule are defying the regime’s bullets, tear gas and arrests. The demand is for the Islamic Republic to end.

The regime has responded by intensifying violent repression. Dozens of protesters have been killed and the government has shut down the internet to prevent the protests from spreading. But they have spread to dozens of cities, including the capital Tehran.

In the town of Osvanieh in Iran’s north-west, gun battles have broken out between the mainly Kurdish population and the regime’s repressive apparatus, and many women have taken the opportunity to burn their hijabs, the Islamic headgear that the clerical regime forces all women to wear.

In the West it can be difficult to understand why Islamic rulers place such importance on women’s attire. In this country [Denmark], there are even left-wing opinion leaders and alleged feminists who advocate female headgear as a right for women. Just as slaves have the right to wear chains.

Where does Islam’s sick preoccupation with women’s clothing come from? To understand this, we need to go back to the origins of Islamic ideology and society, which arose in Arab tribal societies of 1,400 years ago.

That is why Muslim women in the West are not allowed to meet infidel men

Such a society is characterised by constant fighting between tribes or clans over land, camels and other resources. Weak clans fall to strong clans, and the clan that cannot gather enough warriors is doomed. Therefore, it is important for the clan leader to control the women so that they are not conquered by hostile neighbouring tribes and do not enrich them with their male offspring — i.e. more warriors.

The Trail Leads to Pakistan

In April of 2021 a young Pakistani woman named Saman Abbas disappeared in Italy, and was presumed to have been “honor-killed” by her parents and male relatives. Below is another new report with information on the case.

Saman Abbas: In Pakistan, the federal police on the trail of the father to arrest him

by Alessandro Fulloni and Andrea Pasqualetto

New impetus for the investigation. The girl’s brother: “ I looked for the body in the greenhouses.” Three months before she disappeared, she had written her black list with five names: all under investigation. The interviews: How it went that night.

The searches

A risk that seems to have been averted last year by a sort of protection on the part of the local police in Punjab, where the Abbas’ reside. But which now could turn through the federal police of Pakistan, which depends on the army. This, at least, is the news that comes back from Islamabad. Last year, everything had been grounded on the part of the Pakistan national cabinet chaired by the prime minister. The Pakistani magistrate had to respond to the Italian letters rogatory, proceeding to the examination of the documentation from Reggio Emilia through Rome, in order to then proceed to arrest. “But no response, of any kind, ever arrived,” the Foreign Ministry explains. But now there is this new impetus.

I looked for her in the greenhouses

Returning to the dramatic evening, the brother understood everything, and it was confirmed to him by the uncle, Danish, accused of being the material perpetrator of the crime: “I killed her; don’t say anything to the Carabinieri.” The boy, who had seen the uncle take Saman away while putting a hand over her mouth, gasped. He asked where his sister was. “I wanted to hug her for the last time, but he answered that he couldn’t tell me.” Given the circumstances and the times, he thought that Danish had killed her in a greenhouse on the farm, perhaps strangling her, imagining also that he might have cut her into pieces and buried her or thrown her into the Po river. “In Pakistan, that’s how they do it.” They do this with women who betray or refuse an arranged marriage, Saman’s sin. With this frightening idea that evening, the brother of Saman, therefore, went to close the greenhouses.” First, I walked around inside looking for my sister’s body, but I didn’t find it.”

Saman was not afraid

He had his heart in his throat and a sense of infinite guilt. It was he who showed the photo of the kiss with a boyfriend disliked by the family. And it was always he who kept them up to date on her relationships, naturally, without imagining the tragic consequences. “My sister had already escaped two times, once in Belgium and one time from the community, and in our religion, that’s a big mistake…” the boy said on May 15, 2021, noting that he had always feared his uncle a lot: “She, on the other hand, had no fear of him and talked back to him, and this he didn’t like.” It was always like that. And in that period, the situation had further worsened.

The Philadelphia Address

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends a European take on the notorious speech given by our Dear Leader in Philadelphia on September 1.

The Philadelphia address

by H. Numan

Normally I don’t write about American politics, but in this case I feel I have to. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw Emperor Palpatine Biden deliver his speech. It’s definitely one for the history books. Not for its eloquence; that would be the Gettysburg Address. Not for its brevity. That honor goes to Roosevelt with his declaration of war on Japan. Certainly not for its literary qualities. Churchill holds that honor. No, it was the most divisive speech by any US president in history. An open invitation to please revolt, so we can finally arrest you all. A weird address full of contradictions.

What’s a semi-fascist? Someone who is almost a fascist? Or more like a semi-truck, a kind of super fascist? You tell me. Biden is rambling about the dangers of MAGA Republicans, but seconds later about their dwindling numbers. It can’t be both at the same time. On and on he rambled.

Then the backstage. This was not sleepy Joe going off teleprompter. It was carefully planned, organized and executed. Who was the director? Leni Riefenstahl? Nope, she is dead. Steven Spielberg? George Lucas? I doubt if those two would want to destroy their reputations for that. The chap who directed it was definitely a Star Wars fan. Only two things were missing: Lord Darth Biden didn’t wear a black cape with a hoodie, and the Imperial March wasn’t played.

Riefenstahl would certainly have liked the blood-red backdrop and the two security unit members supplied by the US Marine Corps. Security unit translates to Schutzstaffel in German. That was, I think, a first in US history. A president delivers an address with two marines prominently visible in the background. I have great respect for the USMC, but they should have declined or at least complained. They didn’t. That really hurts their reputation. I’m definitely not the only who finds this… ‘a bit unusual’.

Normally when Biden goes off-prompter, the White House hastens to rectify the damage. Not this time. Highly unusual, it was Biden himself who — sort of — retracted his words a bit, a couple of days later. No, he didn’t mean all Republicans. There are some good Republicans too. For him, that’ll be RINO or dead republicans, of course he didn’t say it out loud. When asked ‘what exactly is a semi-fascist’ his reply was: ‘you know’. Really weird, the White House supporting the president’s words while the president carefully backpedals.

Which brings me to the question: what exactly is Biden up to? Not much good, that’s for sure.

I’ve witnessed several coups here in Thailand. Twice much too close for comfort, to be honest. Those coups didn’t come from thin air. No general (or activist leader) ever got up, heard the birds chirping, and thought: what a great day for a coup! Far from it. It’s dangerous, can easily backfire and you never know for certain you have won. Until you have, of course.

Biden has a deadline to meet: 4 November. Vilifying 50% of the population mere weeks before the election isn’t going to help him. This kind of sowing discord needs to be spread for much longer to have any effect. It might be an act of desperation, but I really doubt that. It’s too carefully planned and orchestrated. I worry about what comes next.

So let’s focus first on what is going to happen after 4 November, as most people think it might. Biden’s party loses by a landslide. The House and Senate become Republican, with a substantial majority. Biden will be impeached as soon as the new members are sworn in. Together with him, most of his cabinet. Certainly the top of the FBI and the DOJ. Hunter Biden will almost certainly be arrested, unless he flees the country. Very likely the Clintons and a certain Mr. Hussein will have to explain a lot.

Thai Premier Placed on Non-Active

The political situation in Thailand has once again become very entertaining. H. Numan sends this report on the latest goings-on.

Thai premier placed on non-active

by H. Numan

Thai politics is something to behold. The unassailable leader of today can suddenly disappear in a puff of smoke. He may be a police lieutenant-colonel, a general or dumbocratically elected. It doesn’t matter. Nothing lasts forever. Not even ‘retired’ general prime minister Prayuth Chan-o-cha. His demise was sudden. He has been taken away by… no, not the Grim Reaper. By the Constitutional Court.

Thailand has a coup-o-cracy. The preferred way to change governments is not by means of elections, but by a coup d’état. Thailand became ‘democratic’ in 1932. Before that, it was an absolute monarchy. Funnily enough, the king of that time, Rama VII, was reforming slowly towards a more democratic form of government. But not fast enough for his nephews. Like young progressives today, they wanted it all, right now! A coup was organized, and the kingdom became a ‘constitutional’ monarchy. The king no longer ruled, but reigned. His nephews did the ruling, and kicked out their uncles.

The king went to England for medical treatment, and wrote a letter back home to the government. “You know what you can do with your kingdom? Yup, and use some lubricant with that!” He remained in England until he died in 1941.

I’ve calculated that Thailand has had about the same number of coups from 1932 onward as The Netherlands has had elections. Roughly, one every four years. Some governments lasted longer, most lasted more briefly. Just about everybody has a go at it. The police (which in Thailand is a branch of the armed forces anyway), the army, the navy and the air force. Even civilians played the game of Junta once in a while.

I’ve been in Thailand for 25 years, and witnessed at least four coups and many more attempted coups. That’s excluding all the coup-by-court attempts that usually weren’t successful. Sometimes they are, and the result can be hilarious.

After a period of calm when Thaksin Sinawatra was democratically elected and coup-o-cratically removed from office, we had a bunch of somewhat democratic governments. One of them was led by Samak Sundaravej. His tenure was six months in 2008. His position seemed unassailable. He was utterly corrupt — a prerequisite in Thai politics — slippery as an eel, had the full support of the Democratic Party (they share the name, corruption and cronyism with your Democratic Party) and the army.

The opposition tried anything they could to get him ousted, in vain. It looked like he glued himself to his seat. However, Khun Samak had one weakness. He really liked cooking. That was his passion. A TV station invited him to do a cooking show on TV, and he accepted. The station paid him Bt. 2500 for it. That’s almost nothing, not even $70. However, it was a payment. The constitution (the 23rd, I think it was) clearly forbade government ministers to accepts any kind of monetary rewards outside his salary. Hey, said a backbencher. He’s accepting money. That’s illegal! The next day after the cooking show he was indicted and quickly forced to resign from politics. A prime minister forced to resign over cab fare to a cooking show!

Now we see something almost as hilarious. The current prime minister is Prayuth Chan-o-Cha. He couped his way into office in 2014. It was the usual same old, same old. A democratic government was too corrupt and hugely unpopular. The army had to move in to replace it. No other choice was possible. It was the first coup that got the support of the general population!

It’s Legal Now!

Our Bangkok correspondent H. Numan sends this report with important news from Thailand.

It’s legal now!

by H. Numan

The biggest news of the year in Thailand: Marijuana has been legalized. Sort of, that is. And sort of surprising, certainly coming from a military junta clad in civvies. First the (back then) military government allowed marijuana to be grown for medical purposes. Officially, that’s still the policy.

There is a big difference between what the government allows and what the law allows. Strictly speaking, if you want to grow hemp as a cash crop, you have to jump through thousands of hoops to get a permit. But individuals are now allowed to buy hemp plants legally. Provided… the THC contents is less than 0.2%. I’m quite certain no reader has ever touched the stuff, so let me explain. THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol and is the stuff that makes you happy. The higher the THC content, the higher you get. Like the alcohol content in a drink. A THC level of 0.2% is what you normally find in rope. Cynical as I am, I encourage the government to allow home brewing and distilling (both are illegal here), provided the final product doesn’t contain any alcohol.

Having said that, the common folks don’t really care much for the growing itself or buying a piece of rope. Marijuana sellers pop up everywhere. What they sell is the good stuff. So far, without any problems. The police do not interfere. The current rate is about Bt. 700 ($20) per gram. I expect those prices to drop over the coming months, due to competition.

What makes it hilariously funny is the reaction of the media. Most media are pretty conservative here. They really are in panic mode. The craziest stories appear that demonize weed. It’s Reefer Madness version 2.0. A paper reported a woman had to be hospitalized for a severe allergic reaction to a few leaves of weed in her bowl of soup. That kind of stuff. Woo the weed! Shame, shame!

The funniest story was about a man who went berserk with a knife after smoking weed and taking Tramadol. Really? Once I had severe stomach pain, and my doctor proscribed tramadol for it. It’s a very strong painkiller. Even in Thailand, you can’t get it without prescription. One of the side effects is that it makes you drowsy. And if you happen to be allergic to it, as I am, you fall asleep. Knocked out cold. I slept for +24 hours. Normally when I wake up, I’m wide awake. Not this time.

I was barely able to drag myself to the hospital, where I fell asleep on the floor. The nurses were kind of surprised, but they picked me up from the floor and laid me on a bed. The doctor showed up, and told me: I see what the problem is. You’re allergic to tramadol. I’ll give you something else. He didn’t even have to examine me.

Geert Wilders Speaks Out in Support of Nupur Sharma

Nupur Sharma is an Indian politician who had been a prominent spokeswoman for the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party until she was expelled from it on June 5.

What was Ms. Sharma’s offense? Back in May she publicly stated that Mohammed married his wife Aisha when the latter was six years old, and consummated the marriage when she was nine.

The controversy over her remarks boiled over when prominent Muslims outside of India began to condemn her vigorously. Eventually the BJP — which is said to be a Hindu nationalist party — felt compelled to throw her under the bus.

Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) in the Netherlands, was one of the few prominent Western politicians who dared to speak out in support of Nupur Sharma. Not surprisingly, he has received a rash of new death threats for his temerity.

The following clip is an excerpt from an Indian TV news show on which Mr. Wilders appeared:

For background on the Nupur Sharma Controversy, see the following recent articles from Struggle for Hindu Existence:

Afghan Immigration: The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from the German-language service of the Epoch Times. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:

The federal government flies a good 200 Afghans to Germany every week

The federal government continues to fly persecuted Afghans and former local Afghan workers and their families to Germany. On average, around 200 Afghans per week are brought to Germany from Pakistan alone, write the newspapers of the Funke media group (Tuesday editions), citing the Federal Foreign Office. Accordingly, people continue to leave the country regularly via Iran.

According to the Federal Foreign Office, since the Taliban took power, German visa offices have been able to issue “more than 18,000 visas for local staff, particularly vulnerable people who have received a commitment from the federal government, and their family members.”

At the beginning of 2022 alone, around 5,000 people without passports were supported within two months when leaving Afghanistan by land and then on their onward journey to Germany. Since the Taliban took power in Afghanistan, there had been repeated sharp criticism of the German government’s evacuation measures.

According to media reports and information from the Funke newspapers, local Afghan forces, for example from the German armed forces, are still in the country on the Hindu Kush or in neighboring countries. The refugee aid organization Pro Asyl recently warned not to “forget” the local staff and their relatives in Afghanistan. [To me it looks as if each and every German soldier that toured in Afghanistan had an entire army battalion of personal staff. I seriously wonder: how could they cope without all these people when they were back home? Hmm…]

Afterword from the translator:

Get in here! The best rooms are ready, which will be really cozy in the near future: inflation, recession, stagnation, housing shortage, oil and gas bottlenecks, gas rationing, etc. What could possibly go WRONG? And for all of that the Germans can pat themselves on the back and pride themselves on being do-gooders. They can then chisel that into their tombstones — if they don’t end up in a mass-grave — and have a photo of themselves next to it for even more virtue-signalling from Hades.

Why don’t Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates or Bahrain take in their persecuted Muslim brothers/sisters? Quite simply, they don’t feel like having conflicts and are even less interested in financing the upkeep.

Reminder: Local Forces in Afghanistan — Hardly any cases of targeted persecution. Could that also apply to neighboring countries?

Multinational Multicultural Honor Killing

Two sisters from a Pakistani family in Catalonia were lured to Pakistan, where they were murdered by their male relatives in the presence of their mother for wanting to divorce the husbands they had been forced to marry.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from El Mundo:

The mother witnessed the murder of the Terrassa sisters in Pakistan at the hands of their other brother

The woman is under police protection for the threats she received from her family

The crime against the neighbors in Terrassa, Arooy Abbas and Aneesa Abbas, sisters of Pakistani nationality, in their country for wanting to separate from the husbands they had been forced to marry, could also involve punishment for the family; a brother of the victims is among the material perpetrators of their deaths.

The mother of the deceased, Azra Bibi, had been in her country for some time since she went to take care of one of her sons, a minor, who was living with two others. However, as reported by the daily Dawn, as soon as she arrived in her village, Nothia, her family locked her in a room, kept her incommunicado without allowing her to talk to her daughters, and threatened her. Everything indicates that Arooj and Aneesa were tricked into leaving this country [Spain] when they were told that their mother was about to die.

Once there, and seeing that it was a trap, the family pressured the sisters to take their husbands, whom they had been previously forced to marry, to Spain. They refused and asked for divorces, for which they were mistreated by their family, including by their brothers, so that they would change their minds. They also slandered them, saying that they had relations with other men in Spain and dressed in Western style.

Finally, the women were suffocated with a handkerchief, and shot. The deaths occurred hours after their arrival in Pakistan. It appears that this crime was committed in the presence of the mother, presumably to teach her a lesson for the refusal of her daughters to continue with the forced marriages. For this, after the burial of the girls, a relative took the mother under her protection since she feared for her life, and she is now under police protection. In addition, she made contact with the Spanish embassy in Pakistan with the intention of leaving for Europe as soon as possible. She has a minor son in her country and another in Spain.

There are six arrestees in Pakistan for this crime, among them two brothers of the victims, as well as uncles and cousins, and another three persons are being sought for their alleged involvement. Meanwhile, in Spain, the prosecutor’s office of Terrassa is investigating whether someone in the victims’ environment in their location of residence could have led them into the trap. The Catalonian Police have taken a statement from the father of Arooj Abbas and Aneesa Abbas, who explained that he has not had contact with them for some time since they left home, as a brother and an uncle have stated.

Another Cousin of Saman Abbas Arrested

I’ve reported previously on the case of Saman Abbas, a young Pakistani woman in Italy who disappeared and was thought to have been a victim of an “honor killing” (see previously here, here, here, here, and here). One of her cousins is the latest of her relatives to be arrested. Some of the others were arrested previously in France, but this one was nabbed in Barcelona.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from El Mundo:

Fugitive wanted in Italy for killing his cousin, who refused an arranged marriage, is arrested

The suspect, of Pakistani nationality, participated in the crime with the rest of his family.

It was a crime that shocked all of Italy in May of last year. A family decided to end the life of an 18-year-old woman for refusing to comply with the decision of her parents to arrange a marriage with another relative of their choice living in Pakistan whom she did not know; go with them to her land of birth, and live according to the most rigorous rules of Islam. One of the suspects in the crime, a cousin of the victim, was arrested in Barcelona in an operation by the National Police and the Italian Carabinieri force.

He is facing life in prison for the crimes of unlawful detention, homicide, and concealment of a cadaver, and is now in judicial custody awaiting authorization to proceed with his extradition. The events occurred in Novellara, in the region of Emilio Romagna, where the fugitive directly participated in the crime. According to investigations carried out by the Carabinieri of Reggio Emilia, the accused, cousin of the victim, together with another cousin and an uncle, in addition to having the complicity of the parents of the woman, at the end of their working day dug a hole with agricultural tools in an unidentified area located behind the shed of the farm where they worked.

It was their intention to hide the body of the young woman when they killed her the next day, to which the entire family agreed. After the crime, some of the suspects escaped, and in September of last year, police managed to arrest the uncle of the woman in Paris, who was accused of being the material perpetrator of her death by strangulation. This Monday, agents of the National Police detained the cousin, who was hiding in the Trinidad neighborhood of Barcelona.

The death of the young woman provoked a wide debate in the Pakistani Muslim community in Italy over the intergenerational conflict at the root of integration in the West of the second generation of Muslims who challenge some of the traditions like those that the victim opposed.

Afghans, Afghans, Everywhere!

More and more Afghans in France

by Francis Gruzelle
24 January 2022

Migratory invasion

The great majority of Afghan refugees are young men, arriving alone, and not speaking French. Almost all are of the Muslim faith and are very religious.

Afghans have become the principal population of refugees in France. A population principally male, and between 20-30 years of age. A great majority are male, young, and arrived alone.

The Afghan refugee community in France is very young, and very male-dominated, with a ratio of men to women extremely unbalanced. Only 12.5% are women, and the average age of the entire group is 27.2 years. As Gerard Sadik explains, migration to Europe is principally overland and is by “mostly unqualified youths who have worked at odd jobs in the countries they have crossed.” He also reminds us that these youths are “especially fragile due to the traumatic situations encountered in their countries of origin or during migration, and due to severe economic insecurity,” and that they “don’t fit well into the guidelines for reception of asylum-seekers, and settle in frequently-evacuated migrant encampments, for example in Île-de-France.”

It would seem that these Afghan refugees would be difficult to integrate, given the Afghans in France, a growing and fragmented community.

In the same way that Professor Remi Chauvin was passionate about the life and the habits of bees, many researchers study the evolution of invasive species in a real way. Thus the researcher Francois Gemenne evokes the fear that henceforth, asylum will be reserved “for the most-connected Afghans, the richest, who were able to leave the country while those who stay risk finding themselves in an open-air prison.” He offers the hypothesis that those who wish to flee but don’t immediately have the means will not be considered, in the coming months, as candidates for asylum, but as “economic migrants”, which will reduce their chances of seeing their requests accepted in the receiving country.

Who grants residence permits?

In France, it is the French Office of Protection of Refugees and Stateless Persons (Ofpra) which handles asylum applications and the granting of refugee status or beneficiaries of subsidiary protection (given to persons who cannot benefit from refugee status but who risk suffering serious harm in their countries; death penalty, torture, inhuman treatment, general violence resulting from a situation of armed conflict, etc.)

Aftermath in Afghanistan

After the fall of Kabul last August there was concern that Afghans who had been employed by or cooperated with Western forces would be targeted by the Taliban for persecution and slaughter if they were left behind. That was the rationale for allowing so many unvetted “refugees” into Germany last fall.

The following article examines the extent of the persecution directed at Afghans who were involved with German forces before the Taliban took over.

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

Local forces in Afghanistan — Hardly any cases of targeted persecution

After NATO pulled out of Afghanistan, there was concern about what the Taliban would do to local forces. In the meantime, it has become clear that there is hardly any reliable evidence of systematic persecution.

Half a year after the withdrawal of the German armed forces from Afghanistan, fears of a targeted persecution of the local employees have not yet been confirmed.

The Federal Development Ministry (BMZ) is “aware of a specific case in which a local employee of German development cooperation was detained for a week,” said a spokesman for the ministry of the German Press Agency.

“Furthermore, the BMZ has no knowledge of its own that local German official development cooperation staff in Afghanistan have been threatened, abused or killed by the Taliban since August 2021.”

The spokesman said that the BMZ was aware of individual reports from local staff about such incidents. However, these could not be verified, also due to a lack of German presence on site.

“No verifiable information”

The Ministry of Defense said: “The Federal Ministry of Defense has no verifiable information about a general threat to former local Bundeswehr personnel since the Taliban took power, including a statement by the Taliban in this regard.”

Individual information was brought to the attention of former local staff or family members in Germany and aid organizations reporting attacks or threats by the Taliban against former local Bundeswehr staff or their family members.

The Bundeswehr withdrew from Afghanistan at the end of June 2021 after almost 20 years and took part in an evacuation mission for those in need of protection for eleven days in August after the Taliban triumphed. By the turn of the year, well over 5,000 people had been admitted to Germany. Most recently, more than 28,000 people were still waiting for the opportunity to leave the country.

There is ample evidence that there are serious human rights violations by the militant Islamist rulers. “We stand up emphatically to the Taliban for respect for human rights and formulate concrete expectations of them. We also specifically address human rights violations that we learn about from the Taliban,” said the BMZ in its response.

People plagued by famine

Another group appears to be in the sights of the new rulers: in December, Western states sharply criticized the kidnapping of former members of the Afghan security forces under the new rulers. The reports from the country also say that there are numerous attacks in which Afghan soldiers or police officers have disappeared.

The people of Afghanistan are also plagued by severe famine. While the federal government is trying to bring existing local staff and their families from the country to Germany, new employees are already being taken on in Afghanistan.

Wannabe Taliban Mujahid Busted in Italy

This report from late last month describes a terror bust in Italy in which a Pakistani culture-enricher was arrested. Note that the poor misguided man was already under a deportation order, and was awaiting expulsion.

“Instigated attacks” — 31-year-old Pakistani arrested at Bari

December 28, 2021

Subject to an expulsion order in August, in recent months the Pakistani had followed a process of “auto-radicalization”

by Francesca Galici

Another anti-terror operation in Italy. A 31-year-old Pakistani was arrested by the Special Operative Group of the Carabinieri on the orders of the District Anti-Mafia and Anti-Terrorism prosecutor of Aquila. The arrest occurred on December 15 and was validated. The investigating judge of Aquila, at the request of the prosecutor’s office, has issued the order of precautionary custody against Arslan Faiz, accused of instigation to commit a crime, aggravated by the purpose of terrorism.

The man has lived for some time at Francavilla al Mare, in the province of Chieti, where he is employed as a car washer. On August 18 he had been issued an deportation notice for order and public security, which had been issued by the prefect of Chieti. The Pakistani was awaiting the execution of the forced repatriation, but for reasons of national security, the arrest was made. According to the investigation, there was a rapid and intense process of Islamic “auto-radicalization” of the Pakistani, which had taken on extremist aspects of a Salafist nature.

And it was this last aspect that forced the investigators to take the final investigative activity regarding Faiz. A correct intuition on the part of the police, who succeeded in documenting a continuous activity of apologist activity, via Facebook, consisting of postings and comments in favor of terrorist methods and the victories of the Taliban militias. It also emerged from the investigations that Faiz allegedly forwarded videos and frames of jihadist propaganda via WhatsApp. This indicated an explicit activity of instigation to commit crimes of participation and associations with the aim of terrorism and terrorist attacks, which then led to his arrest.

The man’s telephone was tapped, and it emerged that Faiz was communicating in the Urdu language with his co-nationalists, those living in Italy and Pakistan, attempting to influence them in a radical direction, posting laudatory images of the Taliban, and in particular, the terror organization, Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). In addition, in his phone, which had been previously seized, were found several videos and photographs, some of which were also posted and shared on social media, of training camps in Afghanistan, armed militiamen, and effigies of Osama bin Laden and Taliban leaders.

Arslan Faiz used overtly laudatory tones regarding the jihadist organizations, also explicitly inviting martyrdom against the “infidels”. Now the man will have to wait to be judged by a tribunal, which will have to establish eventual criminal charges against him in respect to the accusation brought by the District Anti-Mafia prosecutor.

The UN Pays Protection Money to the Taliban

I’ll bet the citizens of Belgium are shocked — shocked! — to learn that the UN is funneling some of the money sent to them to the Taliban.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the Vlaams Belang website:

Belgian money goes through UN to the Taliban

December 23, 2021

The United Nations is making $6 million (€5.3 million) available for the Afghan Muslim extremists of the Taliban for “protection of UN personnel”. The money serves as salary for the Taliban extremists from the Ministry of Internal Affairs, who guard the UN facilities in the country.

The head of the Afghan Ministry of Internal Affairs is Sirajuddin Haqqani, the second-ranking leader of the Taliban and the leader of the so-called Haqqani Network, which during the war carried out several bloody attacks in the country.

“Every year, several million euros in tax money flows from Belgium to the UN, and so this country is indirectly a co-financier of the Taliban in Afghanistan,” says Vlaams Belang Member of Parliament Ellen Samyn. And naturally, for Vlaams Belang, that is not acceptable. Samyn will also question the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sophie Wilmes (MR [Mouvement Réformateur, Reformist Movement]). “I will demand that not one euro cent of tax money flow to the Taliban, and that Belgium bang on the table at the UN to strongly condemn this unauthorized cooperation and support for the Muslim extremists of the Taliban.”

Lynched for Blasphemy in Pakistan

The clip below shows what “due process of law” means in Pakistan.

A man from Sri Lanka was accused of blasphemy and lynched by an angry mob, who set him on fire while he was still alive. The footage, interestingly enough, was found on Twitter. It was included in this article from The Times of India.

Yog, who sent the tip about the incident, says that the victim’s name was Priyantha Kumara Dinawadhana, and he was a Buddhist.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this video:

A man in Pakistan was lynched and set on fire alive by the mob in Sialkot over charges of blasphemy. The victim was a Sri Lankan national who worked as a manager in a Sri Lankan textile firm in Pak. The workers of the factory accused him of blasphemy and attacked the man.
