Violence Against Apostates is Exclusively the Domain of Islam

Leefbaar Rotterdam (Livable Rotterdam, LR) is a local political party in Rotterdam. It was the party of Pim Fortuyn back in 2002 when he did so well in the municipal elections in Rotterdam.

LR has recently announced a campaign to protect ex-Muslims. One of the people interviewed in the video below is Ehsan Jami, an ex-Muslim who produced a movie called An Interview With Muhammed (VERY long-time readers will remember when we featured the launch of his movie almost eleven years ago). Due to his blasphemous actions, Mr. Jami was badly beaten and was given police protection for several years.

Have Knife, Will Travel

A man went on a stabbing rampage in a police headquarters Paris today and managed to kill four police officers before other police shot him dead. The assailant was a civilian IT employee at the headquarters, which is why he was able to make it through security to the area where targeted his victims. He chose a ceramic knife to use during the attack so that it would not trigger an alarm when he went through the metal detectors.

The following brief article about the incident was published earlier today at François de Souche and has been translated by Ava Lon:

The assailant, aged 45, was born in Fort-de-France (Martinique) in 1974 and has a handicap of mild deafness.

The attacker, an administrative officer of the DR-PP, apparently lost it, freaked out and started stabbing wildly. Out of five people attacked, four were killed, said the police source. The police prefecture remains extremely cautious concerning the terrorist hypothesis. It could be a [private or organized crime type of] revenge. There were allegedly no other attackers.

Translator’s note:

The perpetrator of the attack was born in one of several French “overseas departments”, (la Martinique), which are a couple of islands (la Guadeloupe and la Martinique in the Caribbean, and la Mayotte and la Réunion in the Indian Ocean) and one department in South America (la Guyane), the last remnants of the French colonies.

After the above article appeared, French media began reporting that the late perpetrator was a convert to Islam. Many thanks to Sassy for translating the TV news report below, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Below is an article about the attack from Breitbart (hat tip JD):

Macron’s France: Four Police Officers Stabbed to Death in Paris HQ

Four police officers have been stabbed to death at a headquarters building near the cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris, France.

The perpetrator “was involved in an argument with someone and then erupted in anger, targeting other police colleagues before being neutralised,” according to a source quoted by The Sun.

“The attacker is believed to have been an administrative officer working in a secure part of the building — making it very easy for him to walk around freely. He would have had security clearance.

“One victim is dead, along with the attacker. Others are in intensive care.”

French media now reports that the death toll has risen to four, however.

The attacker’s motives, if known, are yet to be disclosed, as his identity.

A police union secretary, Loïc Travers, has told France’s BFM TV that he was a long-term employee, who had been “with us for over 20 years”. At least one of his victims was a female officer.

Enforcing Marxism and Sharia in the Name of “Tolerance”

Below is the prepared text for an intervention planned for September 24 by David Petteys, representing the Sea Jay Foundation, at OSCE Warsaw. However, he was unable to participate that day, so there is no video showing the intervention.

Tolerance and Non-Discrimination
Human Dimension Implementation Meeting Session 13

Warsaw, Poland, Sept 24, 2019

Thank you, Mme Chairman:

Many groups push the idea that “Tolerance” is a virtue. But tolerance is a reaction to something else. We must ask what it is we’re being asked to tolerate. Certainly, toleration of evil is an evil in itself!

It’s easy to ascertain the motive for pushing such a notion: the Sharia proponent groups wish to deny us permission to disapprove of what they term Sharia “particulars”, such as the hudud punishments, polygamy, wife beatings and honor killings.

Such things are an anathema to our Judeo-Christian culture. Yet the Sharia proponent groups and the Marxists accuse us of “intolerance, bigotry, xenophobia, etc.” to shame our sense of propriety and common decency. They wish to destroy our culture and impose their systems upon us.

The Sea Jay Foundation recommends that the people in the OSCE Area resist these accusations. Two thousand years of culture, progress and humanity are nothing to be ashamed of. Look at societies where the Sharia or Marxism predominate. These are societies of poverty, oppression, suffering and death. No sane person would wish this for the people of the OSCE Area.

Banglatown in Campania

Palma Campania is a municipality in the Naples region of Campania. Immigrants from Bangladesh — who make up a considerable percentage of the municipal populace — are unhappy that the mayor has refused to give them permission to conduct their Islamic prayer services in the street.

Palma Campania, the “hostage town” of the Bangladeshis

Protests from the Bangladeshi community after the mayor said no to prayers in the public squares. The first citizen: “What racism? I don’t have the power.”

by Francesca Bernasconi
September 25, 2019

Palma Campania is a town in the shadow of Mt Vesuvius, but it closely resembles a city in Bangladesh.

Here, in fact, a massive presence of Bangladeshi foreigners has settled. According to the registry office, of 18,000 residents, there are only 2,000 foreigners, but the unofficial statistics estimate the number to be at least twice as high.

And for some weeks now, the mayor, 34-year-old Nello Donnarumma, has been under attack, blamed for denying the Bangladeshi community the possibility to pray in the squares and the streets. “They have presented me with a sheet of paper with four lines with the name of the street, the day and time — and that’s it,” explained the mayor to Verita. “And then, for reasons of public order, I said no. Racism is not involved, politics is not involved; it is only administrative and technical management.” The Muslim community, in fact, would have liked to meet every Friday to pray in public squares. “ A scenario that cannot be proposed in the present state.” In order to guarantee security, in fact, numerous local police officers would have to be deployed, a force that the municipality does not have.

The mayor declares that he would have to consider a specific service for the event and “leave the rest of the city unattended.” Besides, in Palma Campania, in the case of events not organized by the municipality, they would have to consider private sources to pay security officers.

After the “no”, the Bangladeshi community protested against Donnarumma, asking for a no-confidence, but the first citizen is not giving in. “I have explained clearly to everyone that I will continue to say no if there is no concrete assistance: Men of the forces of order are needed to lift this burden from us of managing this type of ceremony alone.” In the meantime, however, he has requested the convening of a meeting with the other municipal administrations in the area to attempt to discuss the situation.

It is not a question of racism and the mayor points out that he supports the importance of protecting all religions. “But I am responsible for public security in my municipality and I cannot permit that there are situations which are potentially dangerous.” And on Facebook, he confides: “If you try to enforce the laws of the state and guarantee security, you are accused of being a member of the League or a racist.”

Going Galt in Hungary

T.L. Davis sends this guest-essay about the opportunities offered by the nations of the Visegrad Four, especially Hungary.

Going Galt in Hungary

by T.L. Davis

Americans are increasingly looking outside of the U.S. for retirement and freedom. True believers in the republic are seeing the rising wave of socialist and even communist policies being championed on the right. There seems to be no resistance to the increasingly hysterical demands of the environmentalists. The passing of the Patriot Act nearly two decades ago has proven to be as radical and damaging to individual liberty and privacy as it was feared and discounted by government officials as “conspiracy theory.”

Anti-Trump Republicans do not recognize their role in his election. If there had been one solid line of resistance against Barack Obama’s policies, that was not ultimately compromised, Trump would not have been elected. If a candidate like Jeb Bush had been seen as anything other than Democrat-lite, he would have won the nomination.

Republican voters feel as if they are in a fight for their lives and culture and no longer have an ally in the Republican Party. Red Flag laws are nothing but confirmation of that belief. Republican politicians have lost their courage when it comes to individual rights. Did they miss that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez proposed a Green New Deal that would eliminate airplanes and Beto O’Rourke said: Hell yes, we’re going to take you’re AR-15s? Their constituencies hear no outcry, no, demands for a retraction to such an obvious violation of the Second Amendment, or do they simply intend to use it to get re-elected (as usual) with no action to prevent such an occurrence from taking place?

Republicans have lost the trust of their base and have no interest in regaining it. They continue to operate on a playbook from the previous century. They still see Democrats as something akin to John Kennedy instead of Fidel Castro, and that’s only part of the problem. The other part is they are largely globalists, and it is reflected in their voting records. They cannot serve two masters — neither of which are their voters — forever.

More and more, Republican voters of yesteryear feel abandoned, with a sense that electing a Republican will get them no closer to their goals, but rather just a moderation of the Democratic agenda, and that isn’t good enough. That is why they voted for Trump and will again.

The problem is, harder-core small “r” republicans have given up on the process. Rampant voter fraud encouraged by the Democrat Party and not effectively prevented by the Republicans ensures that the socialist train has no brakes. The nation is effectively a democracy with mob rule being the new normal. This impression is enhanced by the recent push to impeach Trump through agreement with no evidence to back up assertions; the assertions seem to be the evidence used by the committee. Small “r” republicans feel as if they are standing on the periphery of the French Revolution and have a choice: to stay and watch the gore fill the streets or bail. More of them are opting to bail, or go Galt, but where will they go?

If the problem is a slippery slope toward communism, with a slight pause at socialism, it would be logical to look at other countries that have survived the brutal axe of totalitarianism and come out on the other side with a stiffer backbone — countries like Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic.

Viktor Orbán arrived at a conference of Christian communicators and requested a meeting with Rod Dreher, editor of the American Conservative, who relayed this message: Orban said that he wants Westerners and others who share these values (to strengthen the national and Christian identity of the nation) to come to the Hungarian capital, where they will be free to speak their minds and establish a base. “I’m trying to create a free place in Budapest,” he said. “Please consider Budapest as a kind of intellectual home.”

The Use of Undefined Terms Gives the State Arbitrary Power to Prosecute Dissent

Today, unlike yesterday — when they were prevented from speaking — members of the Counterjihad Collective were able to get on the roster of speakers at the OSCE “Human Dimension” meeting in Warsaw. Below is the intervention prepared and read by Maj. (ret.) Stephen Coughlin, representing Unconstrained Analytics.

2019 Human Dimension Implementation Meeting
Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe
Working Session No 14 (10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.)
Specifically Selected Topic: Hate Crime — Participating State’s Compliance

Warsaw, Poland
24 September 2019

Thank you, madam moderator, ladies and gentlemen.

“Hate Crimes” needs a definition. Let me explain. At a formal OSCE Side Event in Warsaw in 2013, we got the drafters of the “Islamophobia” narrative to acknowledge that the term has no central definition.

In 2017, on the 20th Anniversary of Runnymede’s “Islamophobia — A Challenge for Us All,” Runnymede put out “Islamophobia — Still a Challenge for Us All” where, yet again, it was acknowledged that Islamophobia “still does not have an agreed, published definition” before offering its own definition, “Islamophobia is anti-Muslim racism,” which happens to be the same definition the Organization of Islamic Cooperation promulgated in 2005 when declaring it a “new form of racism.”

In September 2019, the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change issued Designating Hate — New Policy Responses to Stop Hate Crimes that likewise designated Islamophobia a form of racism while also affirming that the term lacks for a definition — all the while seeking its aggressive criminalization. To no-one’s surprise, the Tony Blair report also acknowledges that Hate Crime has no definition.

At a June 2015 OSCE event in Vienna, at an official forum, we got an OSCE panel to admit that saying something known to be true can constitute hate speech — thus seeking the criminalization of speech.

As of May 2019, UN General Secretary António Guterres, in a speech on the “United Nations Strategy and Plan of Action on Hate Speech” called for stepped-up action to prosecute Hate Speech even as the UN officially acknowledged that the term lacks definition.

It is not a coincidence that both Islamophobia and Hate Crimes converge on repurposed Neo-Marxist notions of racism to be arbitrated by unelected diplomats in international forums where the people are cut off from any meaningful participation. Masked in facially neutral language, the energy behind prosecuting these “known-to-lack-definition” attack narratives is chilling.

Of course, as we are constantly reminded, “we all know what it is.” And we do! It is the granting to the state the arbitrary authority to prosecute its citizens for any reason or no reason at all. We will have those definitions after it’s too late to stop the process. When that happens, we will have completed the transition from citizens to subjects.

The Fight Against Ourselves

Every autumn the leaves change color and fall from the trees. And every autumn the culture war against Black Pete heats up in the Netherlands. Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends a report on this year’s iteration of the Dutch national pastime.

The fight against ourselves

by H. Numan

It’s that time of the year again. By now it’s a sad tradition, I have to debunk the idea of Black Pete as an American blackface. Again and again and again. Our progressive f(r)iends have added the Dutch Golden Age to it. That’s also racist. The Amsterdam Museum stated they will no longer call the Dutch Golden Age (1600-1700) the Golden Age.

The Dutch Golden Age — we call it ‘de Gouden Eeuw’ or Golden Century — was the period in which the Dutch established themselves as world leaders for a while. It began after the revolt against Spain started, well before the year 1600. And it ended when England and France caught up after they solved their civil war problems. During that period the world’s biggest merchant fleet was Dutch. We didn’t have the biggest navy, but regularly defeated the British navy. Including the famous Raid on the Medway. That was by far the most humiliating naval defeat the British navy ever suffered. during the Second Anglo-Dutch war the Dutch navy raided the home base of the British navy, which at the time was near London. Most of the British fleet was burned; the flagship Royal Charles was towed to Rotterdam where you could visit it for 25 cents. Kapitänleutnant Günther Prien, eat your heart out!

In that period the first global company was formed, the VOC or United Dutch East India company. Also the WIC or West Indian Company. The former colonized and traded in what is nowadays Indonesia, the latter raided South America and traded in slaves. It also captured the only Spanish flota or silver fleet ever, accomplished by Piet Hein. In that period Dutch scientist were at the forefront of scientific discovery. Dr. Boerhaave was the best known physician of the period. Anthony van Leeuwenhoek invented the microscope and Dutch lawyers the concept of the free sea, Mare Librum. Art bloomed and blossomed. I don’t have to mention Rembrandt, Jan Steen, Frans Hals and many others, do I?

Of course it wasn’t a golden era for everyone. There are always people who benefit less in a certain period. That’s a simple fact of life. In fact, if you look at the common man, the ensuing period of national stagnation (1700-1800) was his golden era. With relatively higher wages and slightly better working conditions. And that is how progressives look at history. Do bear in mind that history is a social science, therefore not exact. You can find any result you want. It’s just a matter of what you focus on, and bend the results to what you want. Even real science can be bent. Just look at the rape of meteorology where progressive activist scientists openly commit fraud in order to prove global warming. So much for independent peer reviews…

However, the sad tradition I have to tell you about time and time again concerns Sinterklaas. Not Santa Claus, who is the cultural offspring of Saint Nicholas, the yule spirit (England) and Samichclaus (Germany). Modern Santa is a fairly recent tradition merging the three together, dating to and after Victorian times.

Sinterklaas is the colloquial Dutch name for Saint Nicholas. He has a black helper, and that is where the progressive fun starts. The Sinterklaas tradition is old. Very old. The festival was already celebrated in medieval times long before anything remotely looking like the ‘Netherlands’ existed. Not to the joy of the Catholic Church, mind you. They grudgingly allowed it. Their objection was that Sinterklaas was really a pagan festival — it’s that old. The Dutch kept celebrating Sinterklaas after the Reformation, when the republic became protestant. The now Calvinist church wasn’t any better, and tried to outlaw and ban Sinterklaas. Without success. The Dutch kept on celebrating this age-old children’s festival.

Viktor Orbán in Rome: Forget Migrant Distribution Quotas. We Need Deportation Quotas!

Last Saturday Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán was invited to speak at an annual event hosted by the Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) in Rome. If Italians are ever allowed to vote again, the FdI will almost certainly become part of the next governing coalition, along with Matteo Salvini and the Lega.

Mr. Orbán gave a rousing speech that was punctuated about five minutes in by the Italian audience singing a popular political anthem (in Italian) about the Hungarian uprising against the Soviets in 1956. When you watch that part of the excerpt below, you’ll see Giorgia Meloni, the leader of the Fratelli d’Italia, stand up and sing along with everyone else.

The Growth of Salafism in the Netherlands

Once again, Dutch politicians and the media are shocked — shocked, I tell you! — at the increasing level of Salafist ideology in the Netherlands.

The video below features Ahmed Marcouch, the mayor of Arnhem, whom we’ve seen before on several occasions. He’s a “moderate” if there ever was one, but his view of what Islam should be doesn’t seem to gain any traction among Muslims in the Low Countries.

Mr. Marcouch plainly views Salafist “extremism” as an aberration of Islam. If only I could, I’d tell him that Islamic “extremism” is what develops when Muslims pay close attention to their scriptures and attempt to follow them to the letter. However, I’m sure he already knows that — he’s obviously no fool. In any case, the Salafists will continue to sprout like mushrooms, regardless of what he says.

Rasmus Paludan in Canada, Part Three

This is the third installment of Vlad’s interview with Rasmus Paludan, the leader of the Stram Kurs (“Hard Line”) party in Denmark. (Previously: Part 1, Part 2.)

In this portion of the interview Mr. Paludan discusses his decision to ignore the advice of the security service, and say whatever he liked at his anti-Islam demonstrations. Vlad includes a few video excerpts of the resulting riots.

Hate Speech, “Islamophobia”, and Undefined Terms

Next week the annual “Human Dimension” conference will be hosted in Warsaw by the ODIHR (Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights) under the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe). Volunteers from the Counterjihad Collective will be there to do rhetorical battle with the Islamizers of Europe, as they have so many times in the past (see the OSCE Archives for a chronicle of previous close encounters with the OSCE).

Since Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff and Henrik Clausen began attending OSCE conferences ten years ago, we’ve watched the organization gradually metamorphose from a (mostly) well-meaning outfit that really did respect free speech into a full-blown Politically Correct Multicultural trans-national advocacy group. It is basically a subsidiary of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), and acts as a government-funded think tank for the UN (which is also a subdivision of the OIC).

Despite the odds against us, the Counterjihad Collective continues to fight the good fight, and some of us (not including myself) will be in Warsaw next week.

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

The two videos below were prepared by Maj. (ret) Stephen Coughlin in collaboration with Vlad Tepes. They recapitulate material from two Human Dimension conferences, one in Warsaw in September of 2013, the other in Vienna in June of 2015.

I was present at the 2013 event, so I’ll provide a brief introduction to what happened at the notorious side event that featured the colorfully-attired Bashy Quraishy and the staid Robin Richardson of the Runnymede Trust.

On September 24, 2013 the ODIHR Tolerance and Non-Discrimination Department convened a side event, “Educational initiatives and approaches for addressing anti-Semitism and intolerance against Muslims”. This sounded like a worthwhile opportunity, and a large contingent of people from the Counterjihad Collective decided to attend it.

It was a good thing we did. It turned out that the side event was convened to highlight “Guidelines for Educators on Countering Intolerance and Discrimination against Muslims: Addressing Islamophobia through Education”, which was published jointly [pdf] by OSCE/ODIHR, the Council of Europe, and UNESCO in 2011. This document — which contains 49 instances of the word “Islamophobia” — was discussed in the detailed ICLA paper The Problematic Definition of “Islamophobia” [pdf, to which I contributed], and was part of the focus of our research.

The first forty minutes or so featured presentations by the panelists, including some of the authors of the “Guidelines”. One of them was a British gentleman named Robin Richardson, who was associated with the Runnymede Trust.

Since the panelists had repeatedly mentioned “Islamophobia” — ICLA’s topic for the week — I decided to have my say, since I was fully briefed on the word “Islamophobia” and its use in the OSCE document. After comments by one other member of the audience, I spoke up, and a lengthy discussion ensued, capped by devastating remarks made by Maj. Stephen Coughlin.

Some excerpts:

Ned May: We need new terminology. On behalf of the International Civil Liberties Alliance, I formally object to the use of the word Islamophobia. Any official use, including this document. It is ill-defined and was undefined for four years. We requested a definition for four years. And it’s not even defined in here. And when we finally got one, it was from the Turkish delegation this year. And it was based on a definition by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. That is a clear conflict of interest, to use a definition by an Islamic body of something that is used against non-Muslims.

That’s the first problem. The second problem is the definition itself as our extensive, well-sourced paper showed, has at least thirteen major problems including six logical failures. It cannot be used. And the biggest failure is that the definition calls Islamophobia based on unfounded fear of Muslims or Islam. That itself is difficult to prove in any given circumstance.

And any researcher who attempts to prove that someone has a well-founded fear of Islam is branded an Islamophobe. That turns the word itself into a Catch-22. It is circular; it is recursive.

The word must be defined through the agreement of people who share different points of view: those who object to Islamic law, those who support Islamic law, those who have no opinion.

It must be defined by Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, atheists, agreeing together what Islamophobia is. Otherwise, it should be abandoned entirely. Stricken from existing publications including kept out of future publications. Thank you.

Later on, after Maj. Coughlin made his excellent presentation, there was this brief exchange:

Robin Richardson: Just could I come back, I don’t think the word Islamophobia appears in here. It appears on the title.

Ned May: It’s in there forty-nine times.

Robin Richardson: Is it really? I guess you’re right. I stand corrected. I’m surprised. But anyway, on definition. At Runnymede, we had a working definition. I don’t think the OIC existed —

Ned May: The Runnymede definition is in here.

Maj. Coughlin has revisited the material (including his most salient comments) from that side event and provided additional context for the first composite video. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for editing and uploading both videos.

From September 2013:

The full audio of the final 48 minutes of the 2013 side event is available here. For a more detailed account of that night’s side events, including a complete transcript of the audio, see “Torpedoing Islamophobia”.

Sharia Creeps Into the Schools of Cupertino

The following letter written to a local school official was sent by a reader in California, who includes this note:

The following letter was sent to the superintendent of the Cupertino (California) Unified School District. It is self-explanatory. In brief, a Syrian Moslem woman who practices sharia (in her dress, in the dress she enforces on her daughters, in her views) is a big part of the school PTA. I happen to know the parent who wrote this letter, and so am sharing with you, just as another concerned American who sees sharia creeping into many of our communities.

Here is the letter:

Dear Superintendent,

Perhaps you are aware that in Iran, governed by Islamic sharia law, women are not allowed to enter football stadia. Last week, an Iranian woman, who was arrested for trying to enter, immolated herself and has died today. Here is a report.

Why am I writing to you about her? Because while such horrible discrimination can seem very far away to us in America, in reality it may exist in milder forms here too. There is a lady (named Nasreen Ally, mother of Jude Al-Sakka) who is part of Sedgwick PTA, who actually does such discrimination with her own daughters as part of her Islamic upbringing. See this interview of her daughter.


My mom was really traditional, so when I was a little girl, she would tell me, ‘You should be doing this and this and other feminine activities,” and she’d get really mad and annoyed whenever my dad would take me to play soccer and do adventurous stuff.

The girl also expresses some religious bias even in who she sits with (“in my school, I’d always sit with a group of Muslim people”).

I also know for a fact that she does not allow her daughters to play outside her home, and to just do normal things teenage girls do (sports, hanging out with non-Muslims, etc.)

Now here is my concern. Such a person is part of the PTA. She is very much involved with the school activities. Can we really allow such a person to be so close to our children at a formative age? What about the girls at Sedgwick? Are they also going to be discouraged, perhaps subtly, from doing things this lady considers against Islamic values for girls?

Here is my suggestion for your kind consideration. Please restrict her access to the school. After all, her daughter has accepted her biases in print in an interview. Surely the parents of every daughter at Sedgwick have a right to be concerned that a person with such a mindset is allowed near their children.

Thank you,
A parent of a Sedgwick 3rd-grader

PS: I have also written to Principal Erin Lindsey about this. Please note that the lady’s views are in print offered by her own daughter, so it is not as if we are making assumptions here. As a parent of a 3rd grade girl, I am highly uncomfortable that a person with such views is influencing our PTA.
