Culture-Enriching Arsonist Can’t Be Deported

I posted yesterday about an Algerian culture-enricher who tried to burn down a synagogue in Rouen, and was shot dead by police for his efforts. The unfortunate youth had been ordered to leave France, but could not be deported because he had appealed the order.

“I Am Afraid to Be an Israeli in Belgium”

An Israeli Jew and his daughter were physically attacked by angry Hamas supporters in the Belgian city of Brugge (known in French as Bruges).

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the Flemish daily De Morgen:

“It is dangerous to come here.”: Serious violence against Jew who took down anti-Israel poster in Brugge [Bruges] station.

On social media and in the Israeli press, images appear of 64-year-old Israeli, Amnon Ohanah, who was attacked by youths in Brugge. He tells his story.

May 17, 2024

“It is not just verbal abuse or spitting, but now there are also physical attacks, which can end in disaster,” Rabbi Menachem Margolin, chairman of the European Jewish Association (EJA), told the Times of Israel.

The images of a man who was kicked and beaten in the Brugge station have been commented on in the Israeli press and widely circulated on social media.

“Anti-Semitism!” says Antwerp City Council member Andre Gantman (N-VA) on X. “The result of continuous, rabid Israel-bashing!”

“Free Palestine”

The images spread predominantly on Friday, but the incident turned out to have happened on Monday. The 64-year-old Amnon Ohanah had been living in Belgium for seven years and had his 29-year-old daughter for a visit. He was eager to show her our country. On Monday, he took her to Brugge for a tourist visit.

It went well until on the way back in the station, Ohanah reportedly took down a “Boycott Israel” poster.

“A group of people began to shout, “Free Palestine,” he says. “I paid them no attention and wanted to leave. And then someone came up to me and broke my jaw. I was able to grab him so that he couldn’t escape. Then the rest of the group came and were kicking me.”

Video was recording

The police arrived, interviewed the man, and took a statement for intentional assault and battery. The police advised Ohanah to go to a hospital for an examination.

The next train was delayed, and while Ohanah and his daughter were waiting, they were again attacked by youths. At that moment, his daughter decided to film the violence.

A medical report shows that his jaw is, indeed, broken, his ribs bruised, and he has abrasions to his legs and arms. Ohanah is unable to work for a week.

Culture-Enricher Tries to Burn Down a Synagogue in Rouen

An Algerian culture-enricher tried to burn down a synagogue in the French city of Rouen, but was shot dead by police before he could consummate his heart’s desire.

I haven’t yet seen a name for the alleged would-be perpetrator, so I can’t assign a Mohammed Coefficient to the incident.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from France Bleu:

Attempt to set fire to the Rouen synagogue: “A particularly serious anti-Semitic act,” denounced by Gerald Darmanin

For the Interior Minister, the attempted arson of the Rouen synagogue by a man shot dead by police Friday morning is “obviously an anti-Semitic act,” Gerald Darmanin announced that he was going to decorate the police officer who fired the shot.

Rouen

May 17, 2024

A few hours after the attempt to set fire to the Rouen synagogue by a man shot dead by police, the Minister of Interior, Gerald Darmanin, traveled to the Norman city to address his “support to the city of Rouen, to the Jews of Rouen and of France.” For him, it is “obviously an act of anti-Semitism, which took place at a sacred place for the Republic, a place of worship.”

Gerald Darmanin declared that “this act touches all of us deeply,” expressing regret for the disgraceful, unacceptable violence against French Jews. He stated that “Rouen was not the object of any particular threats.”

The officer who fired the shots will be decorated

The minister wished to salute the work of the firefighters and police who intervened Friday morning and who faced “an individual who was particularly dangerous and violent.”

“This individual, with a large knife, rushed at a young deputy police officer, age 25, who was extremely courageous and professional,” Gerald Darmanin emphasized, who stated that he (the officer) had reason to use his weapon. For that, the officer, placed on limited duty within the framework of an investigation being carried out by IGPN [National Police General Inspection Service], will “be decorated by the Republic for his support given to the protection of places of worship.”

“Personally, I am fed with this criticism of the police. I have decided to decorate this officer because I believe he did his job,” said the minister.

A Rightly Guided Caliphate in Hamburg

I posted last month about a demonstration mounted by Muslim culture-enrichers in Hamburg, demanding a caliphate in Germany.

The video below was recorded at the same event. A young journalist from Nius attempts to ask some of the demonstrators questions, but is met with a uniform wall of “no comment”. Her job is made even more difficult by the fact that the organizers of the demo want to keep female journalists out.

Thanks, Wokies!

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends this report on the Eurovision song contest, the Hamas occupations on university campuses, and their political ramifications in the Netherlands.


Students at the University of Amsterdam, 2024

Thanks, wokies!

by H. Numan

Behind the dikes life goes on. The formation of a new cabinet proceeds, as expected, at a glacially slow pace. But I have to give my sincere thanks to our extreme left-wing wokies and terrorists in Gaza. Without them, the PVV party would be nowhere. Our elections followed the genocide on Israelis by Hamas. The reaction of the left-wing parties was what gave the PVV the edge: pure and unmitigated anti-Semitism. It’s very popular in left-wing circles to root for the underdog (unless that’s Israel), but most Dutch were honestly disgusted. It wasn’t the only reason why the PVV won by a landslide, but it sure played a major part in it.

Have they learned? Of course not! They never learn; they are socialists. Simple as that. Their motto is repeat, repeat and repeat. Anti-Semitism is again in vogue. Again, it used to be in vogue 90 years ago, also by socialists. The Left excels in finding morally questionable fashion trends, such as grooming infants, castrating boys and racism. Black lives matter? Nope. All lives matter. Say that in the University of Amsterdam, and you’ll get lynched.

Speaking of the extreme woke University of Amsterdam: they did their best to help the PVV gain many more votes on 6 June. That’s when we’ll vote for the European clown show, known as the European Parliament. Normally voter turnout is lower than for provincial elections. Most people (including me) prefer watching paint dry. It’s more fun, and actually accomplishes something. Do remember that the European Parliament has absolutely no powers whatsoever. None. The EU is controlled at a level higher, by the heads of government of the member countries. The Euro parliament is window dressing, nothing more.

This election would normally rather irrelevant, but this time it’s different. Thanks to the Hamas supporters at the University of Amsterdam! Last week they occupied a university campus, demanding (and getting!) a list of names of Jews, Israelis (other than Jews) and Israeli companies who work for and with the university. The dean, spineless as he is, gave it to them. The demonstrators were, of course, masked and dressed with Palestinian scarves. They didn’t stop there. They occupied the campus, and set up tents and barricades to enforce their demands.

It turned so vile that police had to act. Which is saying something, because the mayor of Amsterdam is Femke Halsema, an avowed Palestinian supporter and — let’s be honest here — an anti-Semite. The riot police were sent in with big shovels to dismantle the barricades in order to remove the demonstrators. It’s a well-known fact that Dutch police officers are polite, easygoing and have trauma bears (teddy bears for little children) in their cars. But when in riot gear, they don’t pussyfoot around. From what I’ve seen, they didn’t.

As you might expect, the general public resented the occupation, and everybody woke cheered it. It did not sit well with the electorate, either. The PVV wasn’t doing great in the polls for the Euro elections. PVV voters are simply not interested in it. Now, after the very vocal support for Hamas by our nation’s finest and future leaders, the PVV doesn’t have to worry about a thing. The polls completely turned around.

The left-wing parties took great care not to denounce their unruly followers. Frans Timmermans, leader of the PvdA-GL combo, did not denounce them, but indirectly supported the poor oppressed innocent people of Gaza who were persecuted to the point of genocide by bad evil capitalist Israel. Geert Wilders couldn’t ask for a better promo, even if a genie gave him three wishes. Most people are simply disgusted. This is close enough to the coming elections, so it will matter.

Wait for it; there’s more!

Insane Democrats Funding ‘Death to America’ Crowd

The following report by Clare Lopez was published earlier this month by Sharia TipSheet.

Insane Democrats Funding ‘Death to America’ Crowd

by Clare M. Lopez

In the midst of ongoing IDF operations in Gaza and spreading pro-HAMAS student lawlessness on American university campuses, a number of stories remind us that the enemy is already inside the gate here at home.

“Several Michigan Democrats Fail To Condemn ‘Death To America’ Chants” at Dr. Rich Swier, 10 April 2024

  • U.S. university campuses are hotbeds of what appear to be very well-organized pro-HAMAS demonstrations and protests that are becoming increasingly violent as authorities both inside and outside numbers of schools have refused to enforce either law or the universities’ own regulations.

Biden Gave $5 Million to Terror-Tied Islamists in 2023 (But Still Much Less than Trump)” by Sam Westrop at Islamism.news, March 26, 2024

  • Of course, as we know, there’s no such thing as “Islamists” [Editor’s Note — As Erdogan said, “There is only one Islam.”], but the connection here is about a set of grants provided by Biden administration Cabinet Departments to Jamaat-e-Islami and ICNA Relief (aligned with the Islamic Circle of North America — ICNA), among a slew of other dubious recipients. It beggars belief that top levels of the USG are not aware of Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups’ affiliations.

U.S. Funneled Nearly $1 Million to Hamas-Linked Charity That Hosted Terror Leader’s Son, Report Says” by Adam Kredo at the Washington Free Beacon, April 8, 2024

  • More taxpayer money being channeled to a so-called “humanitarian group” [Bayader Association for Environment and Development] based in the Gaza Strip where obviously it collaborates with HAMAS.

“Rep. Torres Secures $1 Million for Oct. 7 Supporters” by Sam Westrop at the oddly-named Western Islamism, April 16, 2024

  • New York Congressman Torres was able to secure over $1 million for the Bronx Muslim Center, which is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood front group, the Muslim American Society (MAS). Naturally, they are “closely aligned with pro-HAMAS causes”, according to this article.

We’ll Always Have Malmö


An earlier and considerably smaller protest in Malmö

The Eurovision song contest is being held this week in the southern Swedish city of Malmö, which is one of the most Islamized cities in Europe. The participation of an Israeli contestant in the pageant has been inflammatory for those culture-enrichers, and not just the local ones from the Islamic ghetto in Rosengård — Muslim protesters have come from far and wide to decry the Zionist presence in Malmö, and they have been supplemented by native European Gutmenschen who also happen to be Jew-haters.

Thousands of protesters have been gathering outside the venue every day, prominent among them Greta Thunberg, who has metamorphosed from a chic climate waif into a chic keffiyeh gamine, and draws a lot of media attention in the scrum on the cobblestones.

Below are two articles about this week’s antics in Malmö, both translated by Gary Fouse. The first was published yesterday by Nya Dagbladet:

Tens of thousands expected to demonstrate against Israel in Malmö

Today, two pro-Palestinian demonstrations are being organized in Malmö against Israel’s participation in “Eurovision”, in which the organizers believe there will be about 25,000 participants. A bit later, there will also be a pro-Israel demonstration to “support” the Israeli artist Eden Golan, and on Malmö’s streets there will be heavily armed police from Sweden, Denmark, and Norway.

At 4pm, pro-Palestinian demonstrators will march from Stortorget [Grand Square] to Slottsparken [Palace Park], and organizers of “Stop Israel” report that about 25,000 participants are expected. An hour later, another similar demonstration is organized in the city district of Hyllie.

“We will act quickly, setting limits, and we have a low tolerance. On the other hand, we have a high tolerance for freedom of speech,” says Police Commander Petra Stenkula to TV4.

At 6pm, there will be a “counter-demonstration” held at Davidhallstorg [Davidhall Square], where the stated purpose is to support the Israeli artist Eden Golan, who is taking part in the evening’s semi-final. Heavily armed police from Sweden, Norway, and Denmark are on-site, but report that as of this time they have not received any information that indicates there will be violence.

“There will be a lot of police seen in the city,” says the police spokesman Filip Annas to TT [news group].

Want to throw Israel out

It can be noted that hundreds of demonstrators are arriving in Malmö from Denmark in hired buses, and even more are expected to cross the sound by train.

“Our primary task is to see that the public gatherings are carried out without disturbances, and should there be disturbances, we naturally will deal with them,” explains Annas.

Pro-Palestinian voices, thus far without success, have long demanded that Eden Golan and Israel be thrown out of the music competition, referring to Israel’s ongoing invasion of Gaza and what is described as a genocide directed against the Palestinian population there.

The second report was published today by Samhällsnytt:

Morally Corrupt Stupidity or Malicious Culpability?

Omid Nouripour is the leader of Alliance 90/The Greens (Bündnis 90/Die Grünen) in Germany. Mr. Nouripour was born in Iran, and immigrated to Germany with his parents when he was a teenager.

The Green leader is alarmed by Salafist groups agitating for a caliphate in Germany, and thinks they should be banned.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Junge Freiheit. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:

Islamism

Green Party leader wants to ban Caliphate Association

Green Party leader Omid Nouripour discovers the simple solutions for himself. “Muslim Interactive”, known from the caliphate demonstrations in Hamburg? Forbid. Foreign threats? Deport. But how realistic is that, really?

Berlin

The federal chairman of the Green Party, Omid Nouripour, has called for a ban on the Islamist group “Muslim Interaktiv”. “The very group that is carrying out these caliphate demonstrations must be banned. And to be honest, I don’t have an answer as to why it hasn’t happened yet,” Nouripour said on Wednesday in an interview with the Bild newspaper.

Anyone who calls for an Islamic theocracy is in opposition to the free, democratic basic order. “This is also a reason why not only the demonstration should be banned, but also the organization that wants it,” argued Nouripour.

Do you know what upsets me most about these #Caliphate demos? The problem is not these 1,100 Islamists who demonstrated here. The problem is that NOTHING is heard from 99% of the remaining 5,298,000 Muslims in this country! No counter-demonstrations, no outcry, no condemnation of these demos. This behavior, regardless of the reasons, makes you complicit when all Muslims are lumped together. Finally stand up and show your face! Nothing can be expected from current politics. So citizens have to vote for rules and parties at the ballot box that restore the rule of law. For me it’s just #WerteUnion/ValuesUnion. [tweet]

Faeser wants to punish calls for a caliphate

It is unclear whether calling for a caliphate per se is a criminal offense. According to the interpretation of the Central State Security Office of the Hamburg Public Prosecutor’s Office, this is not the case. A “concrete action” is needed, such as direct calls for crimes and clear plans for a coup. Federal Interior Minister Nancy Faeser (SPD) announced on Tuesday that she wanted to examine whether the call for a caliphate could be fundamentally banned. [Banning the call is not going to stop Islam and its more than 1400-year-old mission. What Faeser is doing here is the way a complete nincompoop would deal with a problem.]

In addition to banning “Muslim Interactive,” Nouripour would like to see more consistent action against Islamists overall. This requires more police and regulatory authorities. Currently there is a lack of staff here. [Well, I guess this is going exactly as planned.]

Jihad Comes to the Tourtoirac Cemetery

During the gradual Islamic conquest of an infidel territory, part of the process involves the Islamization of kuffar cemeteries. In the initial phase, infidel graves are vandalized and desecrated. Eventually the cemeteries become Muslim cemeteries, but that may take a century or more. Islam is nothing if not patient.

The Tourtoirac Cemetery, in the Dordogne in southwestern France, has entered the early stages of the Islamic conversion.

“Racist”, “Zionist”, “Jew”, “Allah”: Tags discovered again in a cemetery in Dordogne

Inscriptions in black spray paint were discovered Monday, May 6 on 82 tombs in the Tourtoirac Cemetery. The Gendarmes conducted the count during the evening. Since the start of this year, a series of crucifix monuments and a cemetery have also been tagged in this sector.

(Inscriptions: “I hate you”)

82 tombs defaced

“It’s a crazy person who does that,” Nanou laments, pushing open the cemetery gate on the hills outside the town of Tourtoirac. On Monday, May 6, in the afternoon, a workman who came to repair the gate discovered the tags on 82 tombs in the main cemetery of the village, according to information received by France Bleu Perigord.

Dozens of tombs were covered with inscriptions in black spray paint: “Allah”, “cowards”, “I hate you”, as well as tags making reference to political personalities or to various news items. Some tags announce the death dates of Jean-Luc Melenchon, Marine Le Pen, or Jordan Barbella [president of National Rally], or even Pascal Praud [radio host], while others make reference to Mila or “Vengeance for Cherbourg”.

Tags had already been seen since December in the surrounding villages, on the calvaries of Saint-Pantaly-d’Excideuil, Cherveix-Cubas, Saint-Mesmin, and Coulaures. The first cemetery was tagged at Clermont d’Excideuil in early March. “It’s the same thing as in the other villages, particularly in Clermont,” the mayor of Tourtoirac believes.

Caption: References to politicians with their death date announced are tagged on the tombs.

“People of the book must…[covered]”, “Zionists”, “M. Habib 1961-2024”, “Racist J. Bardella 1995-?”, “Jew Zemmour, 1958-?”, “Fascist M. Le Pen 1968-?”

Caption: The police were still at the scene Monday evening searching for clues.

The ‘Holy’ Connection

Our Israeli correspondent MC presents an overview of the current culture wars, which seem to be approaching their climax now in the Gaza Strip.

The ‘Holy’ Connection

by MC

It has become very obvious over the past few months that a new Nazism has taken hold. Worldwide.

Occult Nazism has always been more popular than Marxism, which is a top-down movement achieving power by revolution and the exclusion of dissidents. Nazism, however, is a bottom-up movement achieving power by a democratic vote (and maybe a little voter fraud on the side) but usually aligned with public opinion (suitably softened up by unceasing propaganda).

In the current climate, many Nazis don’t actually realize that they are Nazis. They do as Nazis do, say the things that Nazis say, and think they are warriors for ‘social justice’. Their ignorance of history is astounding.

In a democracy, once the vote is counted, the loser should retire into opposition whilst accepting the outcome as the will of the people. But if (when) that stops happening, there is no longer a democracy, and we slip into an ‘-ism’ of some sort.

We see this here in Israel where we have been betrayed by those who (at the behest of Brandon) want to topple the democratically elected Netanyahu government. We have IDF generals so distracted by politics that they failed to respond to reports that Hamas was planning something big on October 7th.

President Trump won in 2016, but the opposition claimed the election was not legitimate (yet provided no proof) and proceeded to harass the administration with tactics from the political gutter.

2020 was an obvious fraud, but the Constitutional safety net failed to work and America has its worst administration ever, making even President Carter look good in comparison.

In the UK the so called ‘Conservative’ party turned socialist years ago. Everyone is so frightened of being called a ‘racist’ that those who should be ensuring equality are blinded by skin colour bias. Having allowed Islam into the country, the pols are now too timid to deal with the fallout. Islam does not adapt; it only settles and colonises. Islam is not a “religion of Peace”; it is a particularly insipid form of religion-based socialism unafraid of using violence and terrorism to achieve its nefarious and deceitful aims.

Islam targets peaceful societies, identifies their weak points and uses any means to divide, colonise and settle. They are the ‘settlers’ colonising and inflicting their opinions (and authoritarian religion) on the surrounding indigenous peoples — or killing them, exactly as it says in the Koran.

So Islamic groups in UK are much more dangerous than, say, Mosley’s Union of British Fascists in the interwar period. Mainly because the government lacks the will to deal with it. They will happily lock up Tommy Robinson on trumped-up political charges, but will not deal with the real problem of the Islamic invasion and occupation.

The political fantasies of ‘diversity’ and ‘multiculturalism’ are much like the Nazi fantasies of ‘Volksgemeinschaft’ (the national community of Aryans) and ‘Lebensraum’ (living space a.k.a. the invasion and occupation of Eastern Europe).

‘Socialism’ is state control of the economy, and DEI creeping into business is exactly that.

Even if obfuscated by SJWs claiming a moral high ground.

SJWs have discovered that if they slither through the moral sewer of ‘ends justifying the means’, they can sling their venom with impunity by inventing new political mountaintops of their own, and skin colour politics is their Annapurna. Their Everest is race-based Socialism (Nazism), but is always obscured in the clouds.

A ‘socialist’ is one who wants to control other people and force them to obey a set of ritual and religious-type laws as dictated by their own ‘socialist’ beliefs. Socialists believe in ‘socialism’ as a secular humanist-based religion, and also that the unbeliever is not fit to live in their society.

The UAE Warns Germany: Watch Out For “Islamism”!

The recent demonstration in Hamburg calling for a Caliphate in Germany should have been a wake-up call for the political establishment in Germany. Now the Ambassador for the UAE is warning the Germans to beware of “Islamism”. It might be a good idea to heed his advice — it’s a topic he knows something about.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Junge Freiheit:

“Typical of political Islamists”

Arab ambassador finds caliphate demonstration “unacceptable”

The Islamist demonstration in Hamburg is not just causing outrage among German politicians. The ambassador of the United Arab Emirates also finds clear words. It is not the first time that an Arab politician has warned Europeans about Islamism.

Berlin

The United Arab Emirates’ ambassador to Germany, Ahmed Alattar, sharply criticized the Islamist demonstration in Hamburg. It is “unbelievable, unacceptable and incomprehensible how people who have found a home in Germany turn against Germany,” he wrote on Platform X. “But that is typical of political Islamists.”

On Saturday, around 1,000 people took part in an Islamist demonstration in Hamburg, complained about alleged Islamophobia in Germany and called for a caliphate. According to the Hamburg Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the person who registered the demonstration is close to the “Muslim Interaktiv” group, which is classified as definitely extremist. Numerous politicians have now called for a ban on “Muslim Interactive”.

Arab foreign minister warned seven years ago

Alattar is not the first representative of the United Arab Emirates to warn the West about the danger of Islamism. The country’s Foreign Minister, Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, criticized Europe in 2017 for what he saw as its lax treatment of radical Muslims.

“One day there will be significantly more radicals, extremists and terrorists in Europe. The reason for this is inconsistency and political correctness,” said Al Nahyan at the “Tweeps Forum” in Riyadh at the time.

Excommunicating the AfD


The Evangelical Church of Germany (Evangelische Kirche in Deutschland, EKD) is a progressive, tolerant religious organization. It welcomes everyone — straights, gays, lesbians, transgenders, atheists, Muslims, you name it. With ONE exception: the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany). There is no place for such a hateful, racist, xenophobic party in a progressive “Christian” church.

The EKD had already cast AfD members into the outer darkness, but it has now extended that policy to AfD voters. If you vote for the AfD, then you are no longer welcome to be an employee of the EKD.

Mind you, it’s not clear how the leadership of the EKD is able to determine for whom its employees cast their ballots. Or is there no longer a secret ballot in Germany…?

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Junge Freiheit. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:

For the first time, it’s not about members

Professional ban: Diaconate wants to throw out AfD voters

The Diaconate of the Protestant Church sees itself as “lived charity”. But this does not apply to AfD voters. They should be thrown out now, announces President Schuch.

Berlin

The “Evangelisches Werk für Diakonie” wants to terminate the employment contract of anyone who votes for the AfD out of conviction. Diaconate President Rüdiger Schuch announced this to the Funke newspapers. Mind you: It’s not about (AfD) members, but about those who vote for the party. According to its own information, the Diaconate employs 627,349 people across Germany full-time. There are also 700,000 volunteers.

“Anyone who votes for the AfD out of conviction cannot work in the diaconate,” explained Schuch. He also denied that the voters were Christians: “Basically, these people can no longer count themselves as part of the church, because the AfD’s inhumane worldview contradicts the Christian view of humanity.” Most recently, the Diaconate in Berlin had driven senior citizens out of an old-age home to make space for migrants. [The only inhumane worldview I can see here comes from this “Christian Church” who “lovingly” sacrifices the people of Germany to Islam for greed and not “brotherly love.”]

Diaconate: We practice charity

The aim is to dissuade AfD sympathizers among employees from their voting decision, said Schuch: “But if that doesn’t change anything, there will have to be consequences under labour law.” He added: “Anyone who supports the AfD has to leave.”

On its website, the Diaconate writes about itself: “We see our mission as charity in action.” The 55-year-old Schuch took over the office of president at the beginning of this year. The Council of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD) unanimously approved the personnel decision.
