The Twilight of Sweden

The two videos below illustrate different aspects of the migrant-embracing zeitgeist in Modern Multicultural Sweden.

The first shows various functionaries in the educational establishment talking about the increased level of violence and intimidation in Swedish schools. Well… at least they’re talking about it, even if they never ever mention cultural enrichment as a factor. One administrator acknowledges the increase, but thinks it’s possible that members of the public have simply become more alert and are reporting more of the problems.

So it goes in Sweden.

Margot Wallström is Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister for the current Swedish government. In the following clip she is speaking about Islam in parliament in early January 2019.

Compare and contrast her laudatory statements about the Religion of Peace with the footage Vlad has appended to the video, which was recorded a year previously. In it you see Muslim demonstrators marching past the Israeli embassy in Sweden while chanting their hatred of the Jews — and also “Long live Margot Wallström!”

The translation and subtitling in the second part of this video were not done in-house, so I can’t credit them:

Islamic Terrorist Arrested in Spain Didn’t Even Pray

The video below features interviews with friends and neighbors of a “Spanish” terrorist who was arrested on Tuesday as part of a series of raids in Catalonia. According to those who knew him, the suspect wasn’t devout. He didn’t pray; he didn’t visit the mosque; he smoked hashish. How could he possibly be a terrorist?

Splitting Hairs

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

Splitting Hairs

by MC

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Viktor Orbán: “The Liberals Are the Enemy of Freedom Today in Europe”

Earlier this week Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán gave a press conference following a meeting with his cabinet. The night before last we posted a subtitled one-minute excerpt from his remarks. The full press conference was more than two hours long.

In an epic effort, CrossWare has translated Mr. Orbán’s opening remarks, plus selected questions — ones that are relevant to a non-Hungarian audience — and the prime minister’s responses.

Long-time readers know that I consider Viktor Orbán to be a titan among European political figures. If he were the leader of, say, Germany or France, he would be able to change the course of history. And he still may be able to do so, even as the prime minister of a country as tiny as Hungary.

In his remarks Mr. Orbán discusses four major topics, all of them related to mass migration:

1.   “Liberal” democracies promote mass migration. They are also in the forefront of those who would suppress any opposition to mass migration, and they attempt to interfere with or subvert other democracies that have decided against it.
2.   Europe is in the process of dividing itself into two civilizations, one consisting of countries that have admitted large numbers of mostly Muslim migrants, the other of countries that have rejected mass immigration. Mr. Orbán refers to the former as a “mixed civilization” consisting of Islamic and (formerly) Christian components. In contrast, the Central European civilization will remain Christian, even while protecting its religious minorities.
3.   For the “mixed” civilization there is no going back. It cannot be unmixed.
4.   The pressure of migration from Africa and Asia is increasing, and will continue for decades. The issue will dominate European politics during that time.
 

Some of the questions and parts of Mr. Orbán’s answers were in English. They are not included in the transcript, but you can hear them in the video. The questions have been translated by CrossWare in a condensed form, so that the original Hungarian is sometimes clearly much longer than the subtitled précis.

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

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

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

Michael Stürzenberger: The Fight Against the Immigration Pact is Just Beginning

Many thanks to JLH for translating this essay from Politically Incorrect:

The Fight Against the Immigration Pact is Just Beginning

by Michael Stürzenberger
December 25, 2018

As I was participating in a massive walk right through the part of Dresden that I mentioned in my speech about the ideological garbage dump called the “migration pact,” André Poggenburg told me I should have incinerated the thing in my speech. I intended to remedy that on December 16th at Pegida, but, since Lutz Bachmann — tongue in cheek — was standing next to me with a fire extinguisher, I decided “just” to shred it. Even that shows our uncompromising determination to fight this treaty that will destroy our German homeland until it is declared null and void.

This could be one of the most important components of our existential battle in 2019 against Islamization, the Mohammedan mass invasion and infiltration of our society by leftist extreme ideologues. We must never allow illegal folk migrations to be declared legal, or masses to stream into our social systems, or ourselves to smooth the way for them, or the opening of all gates, or opening our legal system to their complaints, while the media paint it all in a positive light. Therefore all “Relotiuses”[1] among the journalists shall be outed and their destructive media work instantly halted.

And that applies to the unbalanced leftist elements in politics. In my talk, I characterized the cadre training units — the Jusos [young socialists] — in the SPD [Socialist Party], for example, as spiritual murderers, because they seriously support the abortion of near-term babies. This spiritually degraded pack are the progeny of all the 35-year-old and younger members of the Sharia Party of Germany, who are now demanding the expulsion of the few remaining clear-thinking members. Thilo Sarrazin, for example, is supposed to have done the party “great harm” with his book “Hostile Takeover: How Islam hinders progress and threatens society.”

We can only wish these leftist boneheads happy trails on the way to their own destruction. These inveterate anti-patriots have achieved unanimity among themselves in the East, and if they keep on working against the will of the people, they could fall below 5% in the provincial election in Saxony this coming year.

The CDU [Christian Democrats, Merkel’s party] is in lockstep with the SPD, when it come to self-Turkization. So the chubby Aiman Mayzek, chair of the Central Council of Muslims, was perching fat and happy in the third row of the CDU national convention, like a star guest. The Islam-collaborators in the “Christian” Democrats don’t choose to recognize that the aforementioned central council is a playground for extremely dangerous Muslim Brothers who are organized in the Islamic Community of Germany (IGD) and intend to turn Germany into an Islamic theocracy.

At the convention, an ethnic Turkish CDU Muslim sang a hymn of praise to Merkel for her opening of the border in 2015, which was “ a humanitarian achievement.” But, as every Muslim knows, it was actually the beginning of the mass Mohammedan invasion of Germany.

In Dresden, I also denounced the permeation of the German justice system by sharia. For instance, the supreme court erroneously decided that German regulations on the banning of child marriages are unconstitutional. A Syrian with a fourteen-year-old wife, who was also his cousin, had made a legal complaint. Welcome to centuries-old Islamic incest. This catastrophic decision by the tolerance-besotted supreme court means no more or less than sharia before the constitution. Constitutional law is buckling across the board. Islamization is rolling over the rule of law.

Nevertheless, I evaluate these insane phenomena as the last convulsions of the multiculti fanatics, welcoming-culture fetishists, tolerance idiots and Islam butt-kissers, whose time is gradually running out. Pace-setters for the turnaround are the mentally sound politicians in East Europe, such as the Czech parliamentary representative Jiri Kobza of the party of Freedom and Democracy:

Viktor Orbán: “You Cannot Protect Borders With Teddy Bears and Little Flowers”

The following interview with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán was published by a major Austrian outlet. It’s not clear what language it was conducted in, but it was released in German.

Many thanks to MissPiggy for translating this article from oe24.at (Österreich):

Orbán Interview: ‘We are now the Bad Boys …’

Austria’s government gives Orbán a good report. Criticism hailed at the EU leadership.

Österreich: How do you see the Austrian EU Council Presidency under Chancellor Sebastian Kurz?

Viktor Orbán: The Austrians are lucky. You have a young, yet experienced Chancellor. Sebastian Kurz has already done an excellent job as Foreign Minister. Likewise, the EU Presidency was meticulously organized. I see the EU Council Presidency conducted in the expected manner by the Austrians: with diplomatic elegance and a lot of courage.

Österreich: Two fronts are emerging in the migration issue: on the one hand Merkel-Macron, on the other hand the Austrian Federal government and the Hungarian government. Is this statement correct?

Orbán: The Austrian position and the Hungarian position are similar: we need to bring aid to Africa and not bring the problems to Europe. Some say that the solution is to get migrants to Europe because they think it will be good for their country. The Hungarian position is that we do not want that. There is an ideological difference. That is neither a solution for Africa nor for Europe. In this case, our culture, which we have been cultivating here in Europe for 2000 years, would perish. We say that we want to help the Africans like the Austrians do: we are happy to support the development of Africa. So that Africa can provide its own population with a decent life. For example, Hungary provides 900 scholarships for African students from state funds.

Österreich: Austria, like Hungary, has withdrawn from the migration pact …

Orbán: Some international documents reach the decision-makers just before signing. When I heard that the U.S. had dropped out of the negotiations, I read it myself, noting that this document could cause major problems, particularly concerning national security. I consulted with our government and we decided to leave immediately. After that, many countries dropped out. Austria as well. We’re the bad boys again … now the bad boys of global politics.

Österreich: You were the first to oppose the “welcoming culture” in 2015. How do you look back on this time today?

Orbán: Since there was no border fence between Hungary and Serbia, we could not prevent the migrants from coming to Hungary illegally. It was like an invasion. The migrants occupied the Budapest East Station. They did not want to go to refugee shelters where they would get food and meals; they also did not allow us to take them there. Instead, they demanded to be allowed to move on because they are “expected in Germany”. I ordered that no one be permitted to leave the country. Hungary is a member of the Schengen Agreement, and wanted to comply with these rules.

Österreich: That caused a great deal of criticism …

Orbán: Hungary adheres to its constitution and international agreements and treaties. You cannot enter Hungary without a passport check, which also means you can not travel from Hungary to Austria. Hungary’s trustworthiness and respect for the rule of law were at stake here. We wanted to show our Western allies that we can protect the border. The crowd got bigger, the situation more difficult, but I held my position by not allowing anyone to cross the border. I understand those whose first reaction was to appear “good”. Our reaction was responsibility. One must not allow something to occur that is irreversible. Even if that seemed to be humane at the time. It’s not “do-gooders” that are needed in order to defend a country, but responsible people. Believe me, I do not have a heart of stone, but you cannot protect borders with teddy bears and little flowers. On the other hand, the migrants stormed the border, threw objects at the border guards and attacked the police. You have to fight back. Of course, this is not a feel-good job, but it is necessary for the security of the country. Anyone who wants to lead a country, must make difficult decisions. I want to be a person whose decisions support and respect the Hungarians. If I happen to be a good person while doing that, then that’s fine; but first and foremost I’m responsible for Hungary.

Österreich: During that time did you talk to the then Austrian Federal Chancellor?

Judge Jeanine Talks to Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff

Earlier this month Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff appeared on Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show on Fox News. ESW discussed the verdict in the “hate speech” case against her, and how it relates to UN Resolution 16/18 and the Islamic law against slander:

When Muslims accuse someone of slander, they don’t mean what we do when we use the term. This is from Reliance of the Traveller,* Book R. “Holding one’s Tongue”, § 2.0, “Slander (Ghiba),” r2.2:

Slander and talebearing are two of the ugliest and most frequently met with qualities among men, few people being safe from them. I have begun with them because of the widespread need to warn people of them.

[…]

Slander (ghiba) means to mention anything concerning a person that he would dislike…

r2.3:

As for talebearing… it consists of quoting someone’s words to another in a way that worsens relations between them.

As you can see, the factual truth of any given statement is irrelevant; what matters is whether a Muslim would dislike hearing it spoken.

To contribute to Elisabeth’s legal defense fund:

For previous posts on the “hate speech” prosecution of Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, see Elisabeth’s Voice: The Archives.

*   In full, ’Umdat al-salik wa ’uddat al-nasik, or The reliance of the traveller and tools of the worshipper. It is commonly referred to as Reliance of the Traveller when cited in English.

The Revised Edition (published 1991, revised 1994) is “The Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law ’Umdat al-Salik by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri (d. 769/1368) in Arabic with Facing English Text, Commentary, and Appendices”, edited and translated by Nuh Ha Mim Keller. The publisher is listed as amana publications in Beltsville, Maryland.

Zineb el-Rhazoui: The Crime Against Charlie Hebdo Will Remain Unpunished

The French writer Zineb el-Rhazoui was born in Morocco and apostatized from Islam when she was young. She was a staff writer for Charlie Hebdo at the time of the jihad massacre in 2015, but she was visiting Morocco when the attack occurred, and thus escaped her colleagues’ fate.

In the following video from a French TV panel, Ms. El-Rhazoui brings up a point about Islamic terror attacks that I hadn’t considered before: in most cases, from the point of view of the survivors and victims’ families, justice is not seen to be done. No satisfaction is to be gained from seeing the old suspensus per collum, or the firing squad, or the electric chair, or the needle in the arm, or even the handing down of a life sentence in a court of law. In almost all cases the perpetrators, being determined to claim their martyrdom, are gunned down during an exchange of fire with police or soldiers.

All the survivors ever get is a low-res video of a mujahid falling down in the street and then being surrounded by police. And then they get to read news reports that the alleged perpetrator was allegedly killed, and see interviews in which the killer’s relatives insist that he was innocent, and that the police murdered him. No judge or jury ever hands down a verdict of “guilty”.

As Zineb el-Rhazoui points out, this leaves the survivors and families without a sense of closure. Justice is not seen to be done.

Note: The publication of a new book by Michel Houellebecq is mentioned in this clip; see this Time article for more information.

Off With Their Heads!

I first became aware of the Muslim fad for beheading infidels when Daniel Pearl was executed in Pakistan back in 2002. Over the years I saw a few more beheading videos, especially after the practice really began trending during the heyday of the Islamic State in 2014. I hated watching them, but it seemed a sort of duty, to be aware of what Islam is based on what it does. Eventually I realized that I’d had enough, and I quit watching them. I’ve seen what a beheading looks like now, many times over. I’m old, and my limbic system can’t take that much horror anymore.

Videos of beheadings and other gruesome types of execution constitute a form of Islamic porn. Devout Muslims get off on that sort of thing the same way a voyeur gets off on peeking through a lady’s bedroom window.

Muslims aren’t the only ones who like beheadings, of course. People with a taste for sadistic violence — most of them probably psychopaths — are drawn to such videos. I wouldn’t be surprised if jihad porn were the stimulus behind a lot of Western conversions to Islam. Just think — I’ll get to do all that cool stuff, and God approves of it!

The German news report below discusses the most recent Islamic beheading to gain notoriety: the slaughter of two young Scandinavian women in Morocco.

NOTE: The Moroccan government spokesman’s words might be more accurately rephrased: “We frown upon the murder of infidels on Moroccan soil, because it interferes with the tourist industry, which is how we extract money from the infidel. Mujahideen are required travel abroad if they wish to kill infidels.”

Behold, I Bring You Good Tidings of Great Joy

Merry Christmas, everyone!

The video below is an excerpt from of The Messiah by George Frideric Handel, as performed by the London Symphony Orchestra:

The libretto of the excerpt is based on Chapter 40 of Isaiah:

3.   The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
4.   Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:
5.   And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
 

The title of this post is drawn from the Christmas story as told in the King James version of Luke’s Gospel. I include it here because I was required to memorize it almost sixty years ago, in the fourth grade — in public school. How times have changed, eh? We also had to memorize the Easter story and a fair number of psalms. Lift up your heads, o ye gates, and be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors!

From those lines of the Christmas story I learned that the shepherds were “sore afraid”. It was my first introduction to the archaic English word “sore”, meaning “very” or “extremely”. It’s from an old Germanic root, cognate with Scots sair and German sehr. But to a nine-year-old it was just a strange phrase that the teacher made us memorize, and didn’t make any sense — were those shepherds mad and scared at the same time, or what?

Here’s the entire passage we had to learn (from the second chapter of Luke). Most of it is still stuck fast in my head:
