Stephen Coughlin at OSCE Warsaw: Is Pointing Out the Facts Bigotry?

2018 Human Dimension Implementation Meeting
Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe
Monday, 17 September 2018

Working Session 11
Fundamental Freedoms I, Including Freedom of Expression

The following intervention was read yesterday at the OSCE conference in Warsaw by Stephen Coughlin, representing Unconstrained Analytics.

The principle topic of the intervention was the Turkish religious affairs directorate Diyanet (official government website, Wikipedia entry), which claims jurisdiction over all Turkish Muslims in Europe unto the nth generation, and which is said to be crucial for assuring calm and lawful behavior by ethnic Turks in urban neighborhoods throughout Europe. Maj. Coughlin’s principal point is that discussing such matters is now considered “bigotry” by the OSCE’s Code of Conduct.

Mental Illness and “Allahu Akhbar!” at the Lyon Saint-Exupéry Airport

Lyon: a man tries to run over passers by while yelling “Allahu Akbar” on the tarmac of an airport

September 10, 2018
source: Le Figaro

Air traffic was totally suspended this Monday after a car chase between a man and law enforcement on the tarmac of the Lyon Saint-Exupéry airport. He was shouting “Allahu Akbar”, according to the police sources, and he claimed to be “God’s emissary” when he was arrested.

A man was apprehended this Monday late morning by law enforcement after he trespassed on the tarmac of the Lyon Saint-Exupéry airport with his car, it was announced by the prefecture. He [rammed into and] broke two glass entrance doors of the Terminal 1, without injuring anybody.

He was shouting “Allahu Akbar” according to a police source and claimed to be “God’s emissary” when he was arrested. The Lyon Saint-Exupéry airport was closed. All flights have been diverted to Geneva.

Against the traffic at the highway

This vehicle was reported earlier, while cruising at high speed against the traffic, for tens of kilometers from l’Ain on the A46 and the A42, according to police. He was driving a Mercedes registered in Luxembourg. He was first stopped in the traffic by the Special Police Force, then he fled in his car and sped towards the Business Aviation Airport in Bron, trying, unsuccessfully, to run people over as he passed. Then he turned towards Part-Dieu, attempting to hit passersby there as well. To no avail.

He then allegedly continued his route in the direction of the Saint-Exupéry airport. While he was going towards the tarmac he was shot at four times by the police, but wasn’t hit, then [shot at] by a gendarme who also missed. A deputy security officer finally managed to subdue him with his baton. The suspect was arrested. According to a source from the Interior Ministry, the investigation is for the moment concentrating on the possibility of a mental disorder.

When Islam Dominates France, So Will the Arabic Language

The government of France has proposed the introduction of official state Arabic-language instruction in the schools. The program is intended to discourage French Muslims from sending their children to mosque schools to learn Arabic, thereby reducing the incidence of “radicalization”.

Uh-huh. Right.

It reminds me of the rationale first put forward under the Bush 43 administration for refraining from criticizing Islam: It would only play into the hands of the “Islamists” by driving the “moderates” into the “radical” camp.

In other words, Muslims lack self-control. They’re always on a hair trigger, ready to “radicalize” the moment an infidel makes an “Islamophobic” remark.

The first of the two videos below contains a discussion of the proposed program of Arabic instruction, followed by a response from Robert Ménard, the outspoken mayor of Béziers in southern France.

The second video features remarks by Marine Le Pen, the leader of Rassemblement National (formerly Front National).

Did We Forget?

Seventeen years is a long time.

Or it is for younger people; for someone of my advanced age, events of seventeen years ago seem like just the other day. Assuming I can remember them at all, that is.

September 11, 2001 is one of those days I can remember quite clearly: what I was doing, the course of events during the day and for the next few days. I assume it’s the same for many people in my age bracket: those hours are now permanent markers, stuck fast in the brain until the final dissolution removes everything.

In contrast, consider someone who has just graduated from high school. He was just a tiny infant back then, so everything he knows about 9/11 — assuming he is aware of it at all — he learned from his parents, or his teachers, or the TV, or his phone.

A young woman who just graduated from college this past spring is not that much better off. She was probably aware that the adults around her were upset and acting strangely. She probably saw some confusing and disturbing images of destruction and panic on television. But other than that, her knowledge of 9-11 would be from her elders, the TV, her phone, and her college professors.

The cohort who took their doctorates last spring — with a median age of what? 26, maybe? — fare slightly better. They were in grade school at the time, and in the days following surely they heard discussion in class from teachers who had not yet fully assimilated the politically correct line on what happened in Manhattan and Washington on that beautiful fall day.

And so it goes, on up through the age groups until you reach us geezers, who definitely remember. Or at least some of us do.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

I saw a hash tag yesterday: #NeverForget911.

My reaction was immediate and cynical: It should read #WeForgot911.

But how much forgetting has really taken place? Of those who were adults in the fall of 2001, how many paid attention, assimilated the memories, and incorporated them into a meaningful structure that was permanently retained? And how many simply went back to the way they had lived before, letting 9/11 become a brief blip in an otherwise undisturbed succession of life experiences?

I don’t know the answers to those questions. My intuition tells me that many younger people — who have been subjected to far more relentless indoctrination than I ever have — regard 9/11 through the politically correct lens that their education and the media have so painstakingly constructed for them.

My intuition also says that those of us who were over fifty when it happened probably retain a slightly less propagandistic memory of it. But only slightly, most of us — my generation stares at the vidscreen a lot, too.

For some of us, however, the events of September 11, 2001, were the beginning of seventeen years of close investigation of Islam. Back then I had read V.S. Naipaul’s Among the Believers. But nothing else. The Sword of the Prophet by Srdja Trifkovic was to come later. The writings of Robert Spencer later still. And then Reliance of the Traveller and Steve Coughlin. And much more in the years since.

In seventeen years I have learned enough to know that the dominant Western cultural narratives about Islam are simply false. If you do your investigations with due diligence — and especially if you follow Maj. Coughlin’s advice, and read sources written by Muslims, intended for a Muslim audience — you learn the extent to which you have been lied to and misled by your own leaders, who themselves have listened to the whispers of Muslim Brotherhood infiltrators.

The construction of what became the current Narrative began shortly after 9-11 with President George W. Bush, the man who inspired us all when he stood on the rubble of the World Trade Center. Islam was proclaimed to be the Religion of Peace (and eventually the “Religion of Peace and Love”, by Condoleezza Rice). A great religion had been hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists. The words “Islamism” and “Islamist” were coined to provide good cover for our friends, the nice Muslims, the “moderate” Muslims. The word “Islamophobe” gained greater and greater currency to describe those who refused to swallow the Narrative.

And so on and so forth, until we arrive at the present day, seventeen years later, when it is no longer possible to publicly assign the problem to Islam itself. Islam unmodified, without prefixes or suffixes. The core ideology, which is not religious, but political. A totalitarian ideology which has world domination as its long-term goal — 1,400 years and counting.

You can’t say those things and expect to hold onto your job, even if it’s with a private corporation. If you wear a slogan like that on a t-shirt, you risk a public beating.

And there are more Muslims now in all Western countries, and more official or unofficial rules against offending them, more public recognition of their sacred days and customs and sensibilities.

Yes, #WeForgot911.

At least enough of us did to facilitate the eventual victory of the Sword of the Prophet.

The War Against the West? Still Going Strong!

In the following essay our Dutch correspondent H. Numan provides a refresher course (or introductory course, in the case of newly-minted “Islamophobes”) about the history of Islam’s continuous war against Europe.

The war against the West? Still going strong!

by H. Numan

The war for the West isn’t going to start any day soon, as most people seem to think. It’s already underway. Or more accurately: it has never stopped since 622 AD. Most people only know a little bit about some major conquests, and not a lot of those. Nothing about the many countless smaller battles and wars that continued almost non stop. Some people know about the Battle of Roncevalles or Roncevaux in 788 AD, mainly because of the Song of Roland. Fewer people know about Charles Martel, who defeated the mohammedan invasion decisively earlier in France. Fewer people still know about the many invasion attempts deep into France almost to the Swiss border. And it didn’t stop there. Of course here at Gates of Vienna we know about the siege of that city in 1683.

Did you know that hussars were a Hungarian answer to Turkish invasions? I’ll bet you win a lot of drinkies in the bar if you challenge your friends with that one. Not the first time the Hungarians bore the brunt of the attack.

We don’t learn about it. It’s not politically correct. You have to figure everything out for yourself. If you read up, as I did, you will notice our war began in 622 AD and never really ceased. All you can hope for is for a Chamberlainian ‘peace for our time’. Not for your children, certainly not for your grandchildren. Islam is very much like cancer. You have to eradicate it completely. Otherwise it will grow back. Usually much stronger and far more aggressive. The virus very much learns from past experiences. Let one single cell be, and you are mortal peril. That’s a bold statement, but regretfully, it’s the truth. Dr. Bill Warner counted over 700 battles for Europe, from 622 AD until today.

“But we can live in peace with muslims; we have done that always,” whine politically correct dhimmis — left and right. No, we didn’t. But we don’t read about it. You have to dig for it. We didn’t in the past, as you can’t learn everything from history. The relatively unimportant parts were left out. Those parts are coming back to hound us now.

That’s why we discovered America. After the end of the crusades — which we lost — Constantinople had fallen to the Turks. They now controlled the Silk road to China. The sultan wasn’t interested in continuing trade, not even at extortionate rates. An alternative route had to be found. Sailing along the coast of Africa was highly dangerous, because of the Barbary coast pirates (next paragraph). That is one of the reasons why Columbus tried to sail to the west. It was at least an indirect consequence of the crusades.

We have to do it all over again. This time not with spices but with oil. There is a lot of oil in the world, but most of it lies below Arab countries. Back then our need of spices was used to strangle the West, now they do it with oil. When spice prices got high enough, it became commercially viable to take the dangerous and expensive sea route instead of the overland route. Likewise, we will have to find alternatives for Arab oil. Shale oil becomes an economical alternative if OPEC holds onto its monopoly. The same for alternative energy sources. History repeats itself.

Forgotten are the many Barbary wars we had to fight. Not only Dutch fought them, but the West in general. Like England and France. Even America had to. Your founding fathers were just as dumbfounded about mohammedanism as we are today. Few people are aware that the area of the North African coast was known as the Barbary Coast for centuries. Its rulers extracted tribute for allowing ships to trade along the African coast and into the Mediterranean. That tribute was jizya. Our Michiel de Ruyter had to fight several battles and wars against them. So did your Thomas Jefferson.

Thomas Jefferson once asked a Barbary representative why they couldn’t leave people alone and why they levied such high fees and never kept their side of the agreement. The muslim was very much surprised. Why, you have to pay jizya, of course. You are a non-believer. We can do anything we want with unbelievers. He even said the ultimate goal was world domination. Yes, even back then. He didn’t commit Taqiya, which is unusually rare for a muslim.

Muslims to be Fined for Illegal Street Prayers in Clichy

The municipality of Clichy-la-Garenne has finally cracked down on those notorious Islamic street prayers, which have given the northwestern suburb of Paris a bad name both at home and abroad.

Many thanks to Ava Lon for translating this article from Le Parisien:

Clichy: street prayers deemed illegal

September 4, 2018

[Photo caption: Clichy September 2017. Thirty-four street prayers were organized between March and November of last year]

The Union of Muslim Associations and its president have been sentenced to pay a total fine of €27,000 for unauthorized rallies, after thirty-four street prayers.

€500 for every illegal street prayer, the Union of Muslim Associations of Clichy (UAMC) and its president, Mohand Kazed, have been sentenced to a fine of €5000 each, and, together, to €17000 in expected damages to be paid to the city of Clichy. After complex legal procedures, the Nanterre Criminal Court handed down this decision on Tuesday. Thus, the judges have decided: that the thirty-four street prayers which were organized every Friday between March 24 and November 10 of 2017, without any declaration to the prefecture, are not in accordance with the law.

By bringing the faithful to the front of the Town Hall to pray, partially on the Boulevard Jean-Jaurès, the UAMC and its president wanted to protest against their expulsion from the premises of the rue d’Estienne d’Orves, offered by the former mayor of the town, Gilles Catoire (Socialist Party), under the precarious lease terms. When the latter expired, after the election of the new mayor Rémi Muzeau, the association refused to leave the premises, while a new place of worship was to open on Rue Trois-Pavillion.

The conflict worsened until their expulsion by the police, and then the rallies disrupted local life for ten months. “The mayor was strongly criticized for his chaotic town,” argued Rémi-Pierre Drai, esq., for the city council, and Rémi Muzeau was “extremely satisfied” by the court’s decision. The mayor is of course very happy about it, and is already promising to spend the expected damages for cultural actions on Rue des Trois-Pavillons.

The president of the Union of the Muslim Associations of Clichy was not present.

The reaction by Mohand Kazed, was, on the other hand, quite the opposite of course. Even if he made no direct comments, since he did not appeared before the judge, his attorney, Arie Alimi, esq., has already announced the filing of an appeal. According to the attorney, the declaration to the prefecture was made, “but not at the right time”. He argued additionally that while prosecuting his clients for organization of those undeclared rallies, the town is not adducing indisputable proof concerning the dates. No photos, no witnesses… however, numerous articles written on this subject in his opinion are not “indisputable proof”.

The Pakistani Veto

Geert Wilders has cancelled the Draw Mohammed contest:

Right-wing Dutch politician Geert Wilders has canceled a planned ‘draw Muhammad’ cartoon contest in the Netherlands after Islamic terrorists threatened to attack the event.

The announcement follows a threat by a Pakistani Muslim who posted a video to Facebook vowing to assassinate Wilders before he was arrested.

“The threats resulting from the cartoon contest are running out of control,” Wilders said in a statement posted to Twitter. “Now other people are in danger because of extremist Muslims who see not only me but the Netherlands as a target.”

“If innocent people are murdered then they and no one else are responsible. To avoid the risk of victims from Islamic violence, I have decided to cancel the cartoon competition,” he added.

Wilders made the decision to cancel the event after an Islamist posted a video to Facebook announcing he was in the Hague and ready to kill the Dutch politician.

Tweet by Geert Wilders:

Here’s the video (thanks to C for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling):

As everyone who reads Gates of Vienna knows, Geert Wilders has lived with tight security protection since 2004. It’s too bad Pakistanis — or any other majority Muslim country — can publicly tell the world about life-threatening attacks against those in the West they disagree with, ensuring a shut down of the venue.

Fox News has the latest.

We saw what these miscreants did in Denmark, and then in Texas. Now they repeated the same game plan in the Netherlands. Threaten, attack, and silence. What other country would be willing to host this contest? Which country is free enough?

The Five Choices

Sweden — The Partition of India

Update from the Baron:I was using Dymphna’s computer, and forgot to log in as the Baron before posting. But this really is one of my posts.

Ten years ago, El Inglés wrote his ground-breaking essay about the dilemma that Western Europe is currently facing, “Surrender, Genocide… or What?”. It made heads explode even among certain of our supposedly “conservative” allies.

Last week we discussed partition, which is a third option.

Now our long-time commenter RonaldB has added two more options in remarks about the fall of Uppsala. He was specifically addressing the situation in Sweden, but his descriptions are equally applicable to all of Western Europe and the UK, with Canada and Australia moving along right behind them. Even the USA will face the same dilemma, at least in some of our major metropolitan areas, within fifteen or twenty years, so this is something we should all be thinking about carefully.

Option #5 is “Genocide”, but I would assume it includes ethnic cleansing, which might be called “Genocide Lite”.

Remember: The most important thing about these options is not whether one or another of them is the one you prefer. There are two important questions to consider (besides the morality of the chosen solution):

1.   Is the choice politically possible? For instance, I often hear statements to the effect that “All seditious Muslims must be immediately deported, all the mosques must be closed, and all the globalist elite traitors must be tried and executed.” OK, I hear the suggestion. But it is not politically possible, neither now nor for the foreseeable future. So why bother discussing it?
2.   Is the choice viable? That is, even if it is politically possible, would it work? Can it accomplish its goals, or is it almost certain to fail? It’s my contention that partition might be just barely possible in political terms (after all, it was implemented in India in 1947), but it is not viable — it would fail, and fail quickly. Western Europe and India are very different cases.

Dymphna and I will shortly be going out for a little while. Y’all can start the discussion, and when we get back, we’ll moderate the comments.

Here’s what RonaldB had to say:

1.   Surrender
    This is indistinguishable from what they’re doing now. Withdraw the police, allow sharia law, sharia enforcement police, sharia courts to do as they wish, and continue sending in welfare and public assistance, including housing and medical care, for any Muslim from the area who applies for it.
2.   Partition
    Build a wall or impenetrable fence around the area, move any Muslims or immigrants in the surrounding area into the partitioned territory, and leave it alone. The main difference between this and surrender is that people from inside the area will not be allowed into Sweden, and no assistance will be given. They can apply to the EU, Saudi Arabia, or anyone else who wants to give them money. Whether they starve will no longer be a concern.
3.   Mass expulsions
    This will take some real planning, as a place must be found to expel the immigrants to. The Israelis had the right idea: pay a head tax to some local despot for every head he accepts, and don’t concern yourself too much with what happens to them after they get there.
4.   A horrific crackdown, completely discarding individual rights
    A simple military movement will not have much effect, because the organized Muslims can simply assassinate anyone who gets in their way. You would have to have a security apparatus akin to Saddam Hussein’s secret police, or Savak or the British Tans who controlled Ireland. The city would be treated as occupied territory. Unfortunately, the welfare and aid would probably continue under this scenario.
5.   Genocide
    There are so many other ways of handling this that genocide would be profoundly immoral.
    Those are all the possibilities I can think of. I don’t think there is a possibility of putting a lid on the situation and pretending it’s been settled. The Muslims feel its time to assert their control, so they’re now in the last stages of jihad and aren’t about to pull back for bribes or appeals to reason or civic pride.

What Mohammed? What Koran? What Mecca?

The following video is an excellent introduction by Dr. Jay Smith to the deconstruction by Western scholars of the Koran, Mohammed, and Islam itself. Using hermeneutics, textual analysis, archaeology, and other modern disciplines, he demonstrates that the three principal elements of Islam could not possibly be factually true in the way they are traditionally expounded:

1.   Mohammed                                                            
2.   The Koran
3.   Mecca

The archaeology and relevant historical documents simply do not support the traditions of Islam. Something happened in Arabia between the 7th and 10th centuries, but it certainly wasn’t what is described in the Koran, the Hadith, and the Sira.

A large part of Dr. Smith’s analysis focuses on the qiblas in the oldest mosques, which did not point to Mecca, but to Petra, in what is now Jordan. He explains the likely significance of the switch from Petra to Mecca, which was prompted by the conflict between the Abbasid and Umayyad dynasties in the late first millennium. He also explains the political necessities that likely motivated Abd al-Malik to invent and backdate Mohammed, the Koran, and Islam itself:

Hat tip: acuara.

Brigitte Bardot is a WAYCIST!

The retired movie star Brigitte Bardot has made a name for herself in France — and been prosecuted several times — for her animal-rights activism and her vigorous opposition to Islam. The following video refers to an event in which both of her principal concerns intersect: the annual slaughter of animals by Muslims during Eid al-Adha.

The young “French” culture-enricher in this video directs some angry remarks at Ms. Bardot because of her tweet about Eid, and asserts that she and people like her cause WAYCISM.

Goat in a Baby Stroller: A Sacrifice for Eid al-Adha

It’s that festive time of the year again: Eid al-Adha, when blood flows in the streets and the laughter of children mixes with the sound of animals screaming in pain.

A culture-enriching boy in Italy was pushing a bound goat in a baby stroller, intending to sacrifice it during the festivities, but a WAYCIST Italian intervened, and the goat’s life was spared. (Vlad says he thinks it’s a sheep, not a goat. And the guy who took the video also says “sheep”.)

Islamic Feast, Goat in a Baby Stroller for Slaughter

A goat in a stroller ready to be slaughtered. Storm in Naples for the Islamic feast of sacrifice. A Moroccan is charged with mistreatment of an animal.

August 21, 2018
by Silvana Palazzo

[Photo: Goat in stroller ready to be slaughtered]

The polemics continue in Naples for the Eid al-Adha, the Islamic feast of sacrifice, which will continue until Saturday 25 August. The tradition provides for the sacrifice of an adult animal, sheep, cows, and camels. Reporting the incident in Naples was Salvatore Iodice, a counselor, who when he saw a boy with a goat in a baby stroller, confronted him, “Stop — don’t slaughter it.” “I have always done this ceremony in my country, and so I will continue to do it,” the young man declared. Immediately, four police cars showed up, but nothing could change the mind of the Moroccan. In Naples, the citizens continue to be worried about this custom.

Storm in Naples

Polemics in Naples over the feast of sacrifice celebrated by the Islamic community. The tradition of Eid al-Adha provides for the sacrifice of goats and lambs, through slaughter. Therefore, the worry has grown among residents in the area of Garibaldi Square and animal rights activists. “None of this has happened, though attention has remained high,” assured the representative for immigration, of CGIL Campania*, Jamal Qaddorah, as reported by The Messenger. But the video tells a story that was about to end with the killing of a goat. It was filmed by the counselor of the II Municipality, Salvatore Iodice, who told of seeing a youth with a stroller in which could be seen the legs of an animal. “Alarmed, I got out of the car shouting at the boy to let the animal free, and I called the police who quickly intervened with four squad cars. The boy said that he had always done this ceremony in his country and that it was his intention to continue to do it.” The intervention of the counselor and the police who identified and charged (without taking him into custody) the young man of Moroccan origin for mistreatment of animals, averted the worst.

Avi Yemini vs. the Facebook Behemoth

Avi Yemini is a Jewish Australian who is also a veteran of the Israel Defense Forces. He is a conservative activist and a candidate for public office. Recently he has been an outspoken advocate for white South African farmers who are currently facing expropriation and genocide.

A few days ago Mr. Yemini’s Facebook page was abruptly taken down. He was unable to get any answers to his questions about why his page was removed, so he has come to New York to confront Facebook in person, and is planning to file a crowd-funded lawsuit against the company.

Vlad Tepes interviewed Avi Yemini yesterday via skype:

Is Partition a Viable Option?

UPDATE: I thank you all for an interesting range of comments; there’s plenty of good discussion to read. However, I think most of you may have missed my primary question, which is NOT about what is likely to happen, but whether partition is a viable option in Western Europe.

I don’t have any idea what is likely to happen. I just don’t think partition à la India or Gaza is a viable option. It’s not just that I don’t think it will happen, but that it can’t possibly work in the event that some misguided government (or supra-national power) attempts to implement it.

On last night’s post about the BBC, RonaldB left a comment concerning the possible eventual partition of Britain into separate Muslim and non-Muslim states. That got me thinking about the issue of partition, which has been discussed here in the past from time to time.

The most Islamized country in Western Europe is France, so the first of any partitions is likely to occur there. Marseille in particular comes to mind. But Britain, Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Germany are close behind.

This was my comment in response:

One thing to bear in mind about partition: the new “stans” will consist primarily of urban residential areas, with no significant manufacturing plant or other productive assets. There will be no agricultural land, and the commercial base will be negligible. Unless the other side of the partition agrees to continue the delivery of jizya, the new emirates will be unable to support themselves. The kuffar would basically have to do what Israel does with Gaza: supply electricity and other necessities for free, or for a nominal charge.

I suppose a partition agreement could include the mandatory eviction of landowners from portions of prime arable land, which would then belong to the new entity. But even then, the new owners would hardly be likely to use it effectively — Muslims have a history of destroying agricultural land through bad husbandry; it seems to flow naturally from Islamic practices.

I don’t see any way in which partition could work for them. I think they will require full submission, with dhimmitude and/or enslavement for the former owners in perpetuity.

I can’t think of an outcome for all this that isn’t very, very ugly.

In recent times, we really only have three models for partition to draw on:
