The two recent posts about Sweden and Britain share the same general theme: the imminence of a multicultural Götterdämmerung in both countries. There is a sense that the endgame is at hand for each country — either society will descend into violent civilizational conflict, or the indigenes will meekly submit to the invaders and be annexed to the Caliphate. Whatever the outcome, the current situation is inherently unstable and will not last much longer.
The video below is an indication that France is approaching a similar singularity. In it you’ll see Muslim migrants occupying the forecourt or square in front of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris Notre-Dame de l’Assumption in Clermont-Ferrand and changing the name on the sign to “Nakba Square” (the word nakba means “catastrophe”, and is used by Palestinians and their supporters to refer to the founding of the State of Israel).

The girl was taken back to her country of origin through deception. To her friends, she wrote: “This time my father will kill me.”
Taken to Pakistan through deception by her father. Then tied up for 8 hours and forced to abort. A story that makes one shiver, and which saw the protagonist, a girl of Pakistani origin, residing in Verona. Now the 20-year-old has been freed by the police in Islamabad. She is safe and in the company of representatives of the Italian authorities. In February, Farah told her friends, “We’ll see each other in a week.” From then on, however, nobody had seen her.
The student, enrolled until last year at the professional institute Sanmicheli in the Veneto city (Verona), had become pregnant by a boy, himself also Pakistani, with whom she was having a relationship. A fact that infuriated the parents to the point of forcing her to terminate the pregnancy. “They punctured me and killed my baby. My father wanted me to get married here,” wrote Farah to her friends on WhatsApp. And then in an audio, she told: “They sedated me, tied me to a bed and forced an abortion”. The (Italian) foreign office intervened, asking the Italian embassy in the Pakistani capital to check up urgently on the news concerning the student.
Maltreatment in family
As reported by TGcom24, the girl has lived in Verona since 2008. Her father is owner of a business, and has been reported previously for family abuse; the girl even turned to social services in September for help. The situation was so serious that the municipality decided to put her up for a period of time in a protected shelter.
Sarah, after stating that she was reconciled with her family, returned home and was then forced to go to Pakistan. Here the nightmare began. And to tell it, the 20-year-old used WhatsApp messages to her friends. The young woman was locked in a room, tied up and sedated until the intervention by a (female) doctor, who induced abortion with a pill. Pushing the investigation was the young woman’s school network, from her friends up to the (school) director.
Farah is well-known and appreciated in her school circle. So much so that the professional institute San Michele she attended acted to arrange her exams in a manner that would have permitted her to face the months of pregnancy more serenely.
Her story is reminiscent of that of Sanaa, the Pakistani girl who lived in Brescia and was killed by her father, solely because she wanted to marry an Italian.
Last month a “French” Muslima’s treatment by the police prompted the onset of riots, carbecues, and other traditional forms of Muslim civil disobedience. It seems that Nimouna Hambili ran afoul of France’s no-burka law, and reacted strongly against being detained by police for refusing to remove her niqab.
Ms. Hambili has just been convicted and sentenced to six months in prison, of which she will actually serve half. That’s a significant sentence — harsher than those imposed on immigrant child-rapists in Germany or Sweden.

The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.
Twenty-seven years ago this month, the Muslim Brotherhood (el-Ikhwan el-Muslimeen) in America published its notorious “Explanatory Memorandum” laying out its long-term plans for converting the United States to Islam and annexing our country to the global Ummah. The document was used in evidence at the Holy Land Foundation trial that convicted a number of Ikhwan operatives in 2008 and sent them to federal prison.
The video below contains the second American installment in a series of documentaries on the Muslim Brotherhood by Zvi Yehezkeli, an Israeli journalist and filmmaker who is fluent in Arabic. During his undercover operations, Mr. Yehezkeli posed as a Palestinian journalist, and was able to visit with Muslims and talk to them about their plans for the United States.
As you will see in the video, the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan has not been thwarted. It has not been stopped. It hasn’t even been slowed down. Muslims who intend to make America Islamic are patient. They are willing to do their sabotage over a period of decades and let the process unfold until the United States joins the global Caliphate in twenty or fifty or a hundred years.
Mr. Yehezkeli’s work is every bit as important as the Explanatory Memorandum, but it can’t have a similar effect unless our public officials are made aware of its significance. This will only happen if you, the American voter, buttonhole them and make them pay attention to it.
I recommend downloading the video file, and/or passing the URL around. Insist that your congressman look at it. He wants to get re-elected — if you make enough noise, he will have to listen.
This report is of enormous significance, but it will only have an effect if it PROPAGATES. That relies on you, the ordinary viewer. Please do your part and spread it!

Katie Hopkins is a popular and outspoken British columnist and TV personality who has caused controversy with her reports on immigration, Islamization, and white genocide in South Africa, among other things.
Ms. Hopkins recently visited Molenbeek, a notoriously culturally enriched district of Brussels. While she was there she confronted the mayoress, and also caused outrage among the bien-pensants by referring to Molenbeek as the “jihad capital of Europe”
Many thanks to Ava Lon for translating this Belgian TV report, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
Belgium: Molenbeek “capital of jihad”, controversial report on Fox News
In a highly biased report, the ultra-conservative US channel Fox News presents the Brussels municipality of Molenbeek as the “capital of jihad in Europe”, provoking the anger of the mayor, Françoise Schepmans.
May 14th 2018
“Have you been warned that Salah Abdelsalam (the only survivor of commandos of the November 13 bombings in Paris) was suspected of terrorism?” The tone is set from the outset. The columnist Katie Hopkins, who is reporting in Molenbeek, calls on Françoise Schepmans (Reform Movement), the mayor of the Brussels district.
The latter is trying to explain that it’s not some simple local police officers who follow these kinds of individuals, to no avail: in her commentary live on the American Fox News, Katie Hopkins very calmly explains that the mayor didn’t do her job because she worries more about the votes of her constituents.
“Politicians turn a blind eye because they depend on the Muslim vote. This is why attacks have been planned in Belgium.”
Katie Hopkins, columnist on Fox News
The “worst bitch in the UK”
Katie Hopkins is not at her first rodeo. A former columnist for the English tabloid Sun, she has published numerous more-than-questionable outbursts about the obese (“lazy” according to her), redheads, the poor, and even migrants, whom she compares to “cockroaches”. The former British reality TV hostess has made hate a real business. So much so that she has been dubbed “the worst bitch in the UK”. An entire program…
This time, during her three days in Molenbeek, she explains that she was asked to wear the burqa. Katie Hopkins then buys a full veil on camera and changes in a quiet place. She doesn’t hesitate to explain that if Molenbeek is the “capital of jihad in Europe” it’s because the municipality has no fewer than 22 mosques. Islam, terrorism… follow her gaze…
After the report was broadcast, Mayor Françoise Schepmans reacted strongly. According to her, Katie Hopkins did not introduce herself as a journalist and the elected [official] swears that she didn’t realize that another person was filming her. Her interlocutor “had a well-planned scenario: she was in Molenbeek to demolish the town”.
More influential than a real journalist, still, Katie Hopkins is being followed by half a million subscribers on Twitter.
Yesterday Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán visited Warsaw to confer with his Polish counterpart, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. At a joint press conference afterwards, both leaders were adamant that they would not accede to the migrant quotas that the European Union is trying to impose.
The following clip from RTL features the popular French commentator Eric Zemmour discussing the recent decision by the Bavarian government to mandate the display of crosses in all public buildings — which caused heads to explode among European progressives.

Video transcript (without times and edited into paragraphs):
Respected House! One can’t reform an entire nation in secret. Under my approach, which contributed to our previous successes, we are stating: THE ERA OF LIBERAL DEMOCRACY HAS ENDED! It has become unsuitable for defending human dignity. It has become unfit for providing freedom. It can no longer guarantee physical safety, nor can it maintain Christian culture. There are some in Europe who still tinker with it because they think they can fix it. They do not understand that is not that the mechanism broke down, but the world changed.
Our answer, the Hungarians’ response to the changed world, was that instead of the shipwrecked liberal democracy, we built up the 21st-century Christian democracy, which guarantees human dignity, freedom, and safety. It defends the equality of man and woman, the traditional family model. It restrains anti-Semitism, defends our Christian culture, and gives our nation a chance for survival and growth. We are Christian Democrats and we want a Christian democracy.
Respected House! One can’t see the wood for the trees. If you live in the world in the drifting of everyday life, you cannot be expected to be able to realize that we are entering the era of the birth of a new order in the world, when new systems of values, new actors, new cooperations are forming. Nations keep pundits for that purpose, and among them politicians. So it is the duty of the government — among others — to bring attention to new technologies, new principles to organize the economy, new consumption patterns. New economic battlefields have emerged. New generations and new dynamics appeared. The task of the government is still to prepare Hungary, prepare the members of the Hungarian nation, for the new technological era.
In this new era, everybody must work, and today 800,000 more people work than did so eight years ago. In the new era a high level of public debt is life-threatening. Our public debt rate is 17% lower than the average in the Eurozone, while the income that required us to work for 12 months in 2010 we can now earn in eight months. In the new era, the infrastructure servicing our national ventures will be openly present on the market and it will be the deciding factor. For that reason we took the banking system, the energy and media sectors, into national hands. In the new era knowledge really will be power, so we have taken the first — but really just the first — steps towards raising the sort of young people who can always get the job done. You can see that preparation has started, but there is still a long road ahead of us.
Respected Mr. President, respected House! Its a beautiful thing, this innovation, confidence in the future, and the big plans, but besides that we must keep in mind that we are a more than thousand-year-old country. In the politics of such an ancient country there are things which are eternal. Such as the nation’s size, location, and its spirit. This must be taken into account by the prime minister stepping into office and the members of the government, but the parliamentary representatives also ought to know.
If we want to decide what the Hungarians want in the world, we must be clear about our size. Our size in the last thousand years continuously changed, but we never belonged among the large nations of the world. The situation today is that Hungarians are 0.2% of the world’s population. From this it directly follows that the survival and continuation of Hungarians is not automatic. For nations with a large populations and widespread relatives, a world where they do not exist, where their own kind simply do not exist, is unimaginable. But Hungarian politics must begin with the assumption that it is possible for us vanish, it is possible that we may scatter, it is possible to run out [of Hungarians], and the world can be imagined without the Hungarian version of Homo sapiens.
There were some who thought it was already so. Thanks to the good Lord, we are standing here today, and they are not. That is why Hungarian politics has a task, which from this view point must constantly examine Hungary and events happening in the region around Hungary. Persistence is the question of a life force. That is why the Hungarian state and the ruling Hungarian government must be stable, strong and ready for action. This [issue] is above everything else, has a higher priority.
Respected House! We are a unique kind. There is a language that only we speak. There is a world that through Hungarian language and culture only we can see and only we can describe the way it is. Without us human civilization would be short one language, bereft of one worldview, and poorer by one less description of the world. This fact should give backbone to Hungarian governments at all times. The government that knows this shall represent a Hungary to the outside world that already has a serious performance standing behind it, because we have already contributed to science, culture, sport and the arts to the overall betterment of humankind. We must live with such a country’s self-confidence and dignity, which knows that the Hungarians gave more to the world than they received. Our performance entitles us to the continuation of our history. This claim — the contribution of Hungarians — the government must continuously augment.
Respected representatives! The territory of the Carpathian valley is shared by multiple states. In addition to that historical fact, for us the Carpathian valley is an organic cultural and multilingual unity. I would like to convince our neighbors that together we could make the Carpathian valley the most secure, fastest developing, unified, commercial and economic and transportation region in Europe. In past years we gave numerous proofs that those who cooperate with us do not have to be afraid of Hungarians and will do well out of it.
Last Thursday Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán was sworn in for his third consecutive turn. Below is a video of the full speech he gave in parliament for the occasion. Vlad has made a shorter version containing just the second half of the speech, which holds the greatest interest for an international audience; I’ll be posting that later on.
Viktor Orbán is a titan among Western political leaders — if the leader of a country of just fifteen million people can be called that. Those who have seen the photos of him with Horst Seehofer or Geert Wilders know that he’s not a tall man, but he still stands head and shoulders above the rest.
Soli Deo Gloria!

Video transcript (without times and edited into paragraphs):
Respected President of the Republic, Mr. President of the House, respected representative colleagues: My first word is one of thanks. I would like to thank everyone who participated in the parliamentary election, no matter which candidate they voted for. Separately, for their participation I would like to thank those who chose us, the civic, nationalist and Christian forces.
Beyond thanks, I am grateful to those who supported me personally. I know that for them I owe a special obligation. I maintain my special duty towards them, and will bring it into sync with my other responsibility, which is to serve the whole country, the entire homeland, every single citizen of the nation. My government will stand on the constitutional two-thirds super-majority, but will always serve all three thirds.
Respected House [of Representatives]! I accepted the request [to form a government] of the President of the Republic. The fourth time I have taken my oath as Prime Minister in front of you. This is my eighth parliamentary cycle. I have served my country for 28 years as a parliamentary representative. I ask my representative colleagues to look at me as one of you while I serve as Prime Minister.
I continue to have the same conviction: The homeland CANNOT BE in opposition, because it is far above all parties, and its service cannot depend on whether we are in opposition or in the government. The debate, the fight, is a natural part of politics. Perhaps this is not a problem. If we bang a nail into the wall, and there is no resistance, what could we hang on that nail?
I have learned enough about human nature to know that no matter how much we long to win ever so gently, like the wind, no matter how much we would all like to be pious, accepting facts peacefully and creating agreements based on them, such a thing in the world of politics is scarcely given to us. Or if it is, perhaps only in rare moments. But I can promise, and will promise that in this house we should feel more like an angel flew over us. I will also promise my opponents that if and when a party fight cannot be avoided, I will fight by the rules of chivalry. And for the representatives on the government’s side, I will promise that in the debates, I will not remain a debtor of anybody. If they attack us, you can be sure: what goes around, comes around!
Respected House, respected representatives! Standing before you I asserted that politics is more dangerous than war, because in war one can only be killed once. This might sound frightening, but it is also an optimistic thought, because it alludes that those who are in politics may be resurrected sooner.
As for myself, I spent sixteen years in opposition, and twelve years in government. I learned: victory is never final, and defeat is never fatal. The only thing that matters is whether you are ready to continue to fight. If God permits it, and we live, at the end of this cycle we will reach the balance between my years in opposition and those in government. If at that time I still only have a draw — let’s make it clear, this is an appropriate time and place, that we are sportsmen — we will not be satisfied with only a draw.
Respected House, optimistically, with hope, and ready for action, I am standing here before you. Our completed work can give us plenty of self-confidence. If we look behind us, we can say, even including all the errata, Hungary should never be allowed to have it worse than the past eight years. The electorate must have thought the same thing; this could be behind the prosaic fact and mathematical result that the Fidesz-KDNP party alliance got more votes than all the remaining parties here put together.
And with this, my dear friends, let’s draw a crisp cut-off line. Let’s draw a border that in Hungarian politics one so rarely finds. And because one could not find it, one successively falls to one, then the other side of the horse, from the depressing Hungarian pan-pessimism, to the silly treasury optimism and back. So now let’s draw a clear line of separation between self-confidence and self-complacency. Let’s make it clear: one cannot live in the past. Let’s quote here King Stephen I. [first Christian king of Hungary]. His admonition: “Nothing can elevate you but humility; nothing can cast you down but arrogance and hatred.” Let us confess that behind the success always hides the good grace of God. That is why it is not mere speechifying rhetoric, not only tradition, but a deep belief in Soli Deo Gloria, which means: Glory to God alone.
Respected House, respected representatives. If we were to prepare ourselves in such a way, and set our thoughts in the right direction — let’s state it bravely — in the next four years we will take on grand things. We know the vegetable garden cannot be left unweeded; we must hoe it; that’s why the daily work will continue operationally at its own speed and routine. But we long for something bigger than this. We will start something really great, or more than one great thing. We also know that from a specific point of view: better a live dog than a dead lion. But now we really want to go for something big.
The essay below by Seneca III is the first in a series of follow-ups to his recent piece on “The End Times of Albion”.
Will the Green Flag of Islam and the Black Flag of Jihad Soon Fly Over Downing Street?
The End Times of Albion, Part 2
by Seneca III
The recent furor over the immigration status of some of the Windrush generation and the subsequent humiliating resignation of Home Secretary Amber Rudd has thrown up a disturbing scenario with the appointment of Sajid Javid as the replacement Home Secretary.
Sajid Javid is a one-time significant player in the 2008 global financial collapse where, as a senior investment banker, he was at the heart of the credit trading business and was responsible for structuring an emerging-market synthetic CDO as well (allegedly) as junk mortgages that incurred millions of dollars’ worth of losses for investors. He is extremely intelligent, well-educated, financially astute, presentable, experienced in public office and a real master of the four pillars of Islamic deception — taqiyya, tamriya, maruna and kitman.
Unlike the wretched, semi-literate, affirmative-actioned, linguistically challenged and grandstanding Sadiq Khan whose only talent is an ability to take a modern, culturally advanced metropolis and turn it into a third world hell-hole, he is not an also-ran when it comes to a Muslim power grab but a real and present danger to the UK.
Note his over-exaggerated ‘Power Stance’ as adopted by so many of the arrogant scum we have elected to govern us:
Thus, in brief, consider this: Jeremy Corbyn, whether he remains leader or otherwise, has shown us where the rancid soul of the modern Labour Party abides, and it is not a pretty sight. Theresa May likewise for the Conservative party, as the Brexit debacle has so painfully demonstrated. Consequently, both having alienated a significant percentage of their faithful, neither party has much hope of forming a majority government. Hence Corbyn and May have a very limited time left before their desperate apparatchiks will be done with them and look elsewhere in order to keep their collective Gadarene snouts deep in the public trough. This begs the question as to who will replace both of them, either soon or, perhaps, the second time around after another failed ‘Buggins’ turn’ hopeful has been summarily ejected from the hot seat.
With that thought in mind I must admit that I have no idea as to who is standing hopefully in the Labour Party wings awaiting the moment of their political sanctification; nor do I care. That Party, for which my working-class parents voted most of their lives until it became so unrepresentative of their hopes and dreams that they simply walked away in tears, left me with a consummate anger and, other than during the Blair-Brown interregnum , I have paid little attention to them beyond a nodding acknowledgement of their most frequently headlined outrages.
However, the Conservative Party is another matter entirely. I became a Tory voter and even a card-carrying member and remained so until 1990 when the Party committed regicide and shattered my dreams, as those of my parents had been shattered before me, but I have been keeping a close eye on them ever since whilst carrying two suitcases filled with despair; I have watched them circle around the drain and then commit ethno-cultural treason on a near biblical scale… all of which brings me back to Sajid Javid, who now appears on their horizon as the newly-anointed one. There can be little doubt that as a Muslim, Javid will be appointed in the expectation that he will garner the majority vote of the now huge and electorally corrupt Muslim demographic in the UK, as Cameron so yearned for in 2014…
David Cameron has said he wants to see a British Asian Prime Minister in his lifetime. Mr. Cameron made the remarks at an awards dinner in central London where Sajid Javid, the Culture secretary who is widely tipped as his successor, topped a power list of the most influential Asians in the UK.
Mr Cameron told the GG2 Leadership Awards: “Let us think big about what Britons of all backgrounds can achieve. “When I hear ‘sir’, ‘your honour’ or ‘right honourable’, I want them to be followed by a British Asian name.” To cheers he added: “One day I want to hear that title ‘Prime Minister’ followed by a British Asian name.”
Earlier Mr Cameron had described Mr Javid, who was in the audience, as “brilliant” during his 10 minute speech, which celebrates achievement among Britain’s Asian community.” — Daily Telegraph, 05 November2014
…and then step into Downing Street where — metaphorically speaking in the beginning at least — will fly the green flag of Islam alongside the black flag of Jihad?
Interlude — The Sukuk scam
2nd July 2014 — London Stock Exchange today welcomes the listing of the UK Government’s first Islamic bond, or Sukuk. The listing is the first for a country outside the Islamic world and raised £200m on orders totalling more than £2billion. To mark the occasion, Government Ministers Sajid Javid MP — Secretary of State for Culture Media and Sport and Minister for Equalities! (note that this Ministry had nothing to do with government finances or the markets beyond the use of its own budget), and Andrea Leadsom MP, Economic Secretary to the Treasury opened trading in a special Market Open Ceremony at London Stock Exchange this morning.
“We’re delighted to welcome the UK Government ministers to open our markets this morning. The fact that the UK is the first country in the Western world to launch a Sukuk bond, and the exceptional demand for the bond highlights London’s standing as the world’s leading international financial centre. It also shows that confirms the UK as a key destination for foreign, Shariah-compliant financial products and institutions.”
The following video contains excerpts from Part 2 of a documentary on the Muslim Brotherhood in the USA by Zvi Yehezkeli, an Israeli journalist and filmmaker who is fluent in Arabic. Mr. Yehezkeli specializes in posing as an Arab and going undercover in various Muslim environments.
This excerpt is about the only place a recently deceased Muslim Brotherhood leader could get a proper memorial service — Brooklyn, New York.

Further update: Now the video is working again. Which is weird, because it disappeared from the channel for about 20 minutes or so. Anyway, you should be able to watch it now.
Update: It seems that the Westminster Institute has pulled this video off their channel for some reason. I watched it a little while ago, but now it’s missing. I don’t know what happened.
As I reported earlier tonight, on Wednesday Dr. László Szabó, the Hungarian ambassador to the United States, spoke at the Westminster Institute in McLean, Virginia. His talk is now available on video, including the Q&A section at the end. The whole thing is worth listening to:
The most interesting fact that I learned from his remarks is that all the migrants who took the Balkan Route during the Great Migration Crisis of 2015 stopped in at certain bank in Belgrade to pick up an instruction leaflet (#1 on the list presumably being “throw away your passport”), a cell phone, and €5,000 in cash — at least until the money ran out. So that’s where all those €500 notes came from that the “Syrians” were spending that September in Nickelsdorf after they crossed from Hungary to Austria.
The question that we should all ponder is: Who put that money in the bank for those poor destitute “refugees” to claim? I agree with CrossWare — her opinion is that George Soros wasn’t spending his own money on the migration caper; he was simply acting as the distributor of the funds. That is, someone used his NGOs as a conduit, and he undoubtedly managed to turn a profit on the deal. I’m sure we can all make some educated guesses about who the ultimate benefactor was.
I’ve been away from my desk for a couple of days because I went up to the Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy to hear Dr. László Szabó, the Hungarian ambassador to the United States, speak at the Westminster Institute in McLean on Wednesday.
I was able to have a chat with the ambassador during the wine-and-cheese period before he spoke. He’s a very engaging fellow, and we had a good discussion about the migration situation in Europe and North America. As I expected, he hadn’t heard of Gates of Vienna, but seemed genuinely interested when I explained the significance of our work on behalf of Hungary — that is, the work by CrossWare, Vlad, and myself: we are the single largest source of Hungarian political videos subtitled in English. We concentrate on Hungary because it is at the forefront of the resistance to mass immigration and Islamization, and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán stands head and shoulders above any other Western head of government on those issues.
In his presentation to the audience, Dr. Szabó sounded much like us — more detailed and Hungary-centric, obviously, but on exactly the same page. At no point did I disagree significantly with what he had to say about the migration crisis, George Soros, the European Union, and the worldwide persecution of Christians.
The video of Wednesday night’s talk (and also, I hope, the Q&A) will eventually be made available. Gates of Vienna readers will find it of interest, so I’ll embed it here when it appears.
In the meantime, here’s the blurb that was sent out in advance of the talk:
Immigration and the Preservation of European Culture: A Hungarian Perspective
Hungarian Prime Minister Orbán stated at the end of last year: “we can say that for as long as the national government leads the country, we shall work intelligently, calmly but uncompromisingly to ensure that our homeland remains a Christian culture and a Hungarian country. And we shall do our utmost to ensure that Europe remains European.” Mr. Orbán’s Fidesz party won a sweeping victory in parliamentary elections on April 8th, guaranteeing him another term in office.
Dr. László Szabó, physician, businessman, politician and diplomat, has served as the Ambassador of Hungary to the United States since July 2017.
Prior to coming to Washington, Ambassador Szabó served as Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade from 2014 until his appointment as Ambassador to the U.S. In 2014, the Government of Hungary decided to place trade and investment at the forefront of its foreign policy and looked for a seasoned business leader with widespread international expertise to steer the Foreign Ministry in a new direction. Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó approached Dr. Szabó directly for this position.
Ambassador Szabó graduated from Debrecen Medical University in 1990 with a doctorate in medicine and practiced as a surgeon for several years. In the early 1990s, he shifted his career to the pharmaceutical industry. He spent more than 20 successful years in pharma and served in numerous international leadership positions, including Country Manager for New Zealand and the South Pacific, and Vice President of China Human Resources at Eli Lilly, the Indianapolis-based U.S. pharmaceutical giant. He also worked as CEO of Hungarian Operations at Teva, a major Israel-based pharmaceutical company.
While I was at the Westminster Institute, I picked up a copy of The Death of Western Christianity: Drinking from the Poisoned Wells of the Cultural Revolution by Patrick Sookhdeo. Due to my eye condition, I can’t read the whole book, but I was able to sneak a peek at the section on “hate speech” while I was waiting to hear the ambassador — it looks very interesting. Dymphna is reading it now, and you may hear more from her about it after she finishes it.
No reason to inquire if this guy was somewhat overzealous preaching the da’wa. Mayor Krikke already knows he is simply a disturbed person. Why? Apparently he tossed his own furniture out of his house in February. Sane people don’t do that; therefore he must be disturbed. What else can you conclude? You must be a virulent islamophobe if you think this guy is practicing his religion.
Amsterdam is the capital of The Netherlands, but The Hague is the seat of government. Methinks a knife attack in the seat of government is pretty serious. So does the mayor, as she ordered the Rijksrecherche (sort of police to police the police) to immediately investigate the fact that the police had shot this man. Wounded, admittedly. But nevertheless they used their weapons! We can’t have that, can we? What about the “disturbed” man? Yes, she ordered an investigation of him as well. A psychiatric investigation. And she ordered a committee to look into his mental state.
As you can see, the situation is completely under control. Nothing to worry about.
Or perhaps we should worry? What I read on other than mainstream or government-approved media (in Holland that is the same) is that this gentlemen was fully under control of himself. He knew what he was doing, that being the slicing of throats of infidels. Nope, nothing to worry. Because it’s not mainstream media, therefore it must be fake news. Can’t be anything else.
Some other news you don’t have to worry about. The province of Frisia wants to make it compulsory for primary schoolchildren to visit mosques. Of course mohammedans came up with this brilliant idea, but the provincial government kind of likes it too. All in the name of community cohesion, understanding other cultures and whatnot. What I strangely miss is a compulsory visit of mohammedan children to churches and synagogues. But then, mohammedans take their religion — of peace — a lot more seriously than Christians and Jews. Because those religions explicitly forbid entering heathen temples as well. It’s just that nobody seems to care anymore.
The Dutch ministry of defense, officially, likes community cohesion too. Participating in an iftar meal is professional, they say. Which means if you do not want to participate, you’re not professional. We don’t want unprofessionals in our organization. Out you go, or that least no promotion ever. As you probably can understand, the Islamsterdam municipal police leads the way here.
