Zineb el-Rhazoui: “Islam Has to Submit to French Republican Laws”

Zineb el-Rhazoui is a French writer, a former staff member of Charlie Hebdo, who was born in Morocco and apostatized from Islam in her youth. She escaped being killed during the jihad massacre of 2015 because she was visiting Morocco at the time of the attack.

In the following two clips from French television Ms. El-Rhazoui discusses two related issues: the way Islam is sugar-coated and falsely described even in “deradicalization” programs, and the fact that Islam is not permitted to be criticized and mocked the way other religious faiths are.

Misogyny on 34th Street

Tabitha Korol sends this essay on the recent sharia-compliance of Macy’s department stores in the matter of female apparel.

Misogyny on 34th Street

by Tabitha Korol

I can still remember the many happy occasions I spent shopping at Macy’s on 34th, as a child, my pockets filled with hot chestnuts; later, as a new fashion designer fresh out of the Fashion Institute of Technology, either killing time between job interviews or checking out the new styles; and then as a newlywed, shopping for our first apartment. It is very difficult to fathom how this company, which produces the world-renowned Macy’s Parade; the magnificent Christmas windows, with incomparable set designs and moving figures that mesmerized crowds of eager spectators, would one day turn on its customers — when Macy’s owners, its board of directors and staff would consent to introduce a line of oppressive clothing to their female clientele. Known as the veil or hijab and forcibly imposed in tyrannical, misogynistic Islamic regimes, these alone were selected by Macy’s from the world’s many kinds of fashion.

Macy’s headquarters have fallen for the leftist line: that it is prudent to strive for multiculturalism in a country that has long been a thriving melting pot that elicited the envy of the world. America’s past success has clearly been due to the immigrants’ fervor to live and let live, whereas Islam, by stark contrast, is mandated by its Koran to dominate and subdue all other cultures by any means necessary. Multiculturalism is repulsive to Islam.

In addition to the denigration of Western religions, the rewriting of our history, the destruction of our statuary, and the attack on gender identity, the public is now being conditioned to accept the appearance of these oppressed, shrouded forms on city streets.

Introducing Islamic styles to the American public is yet another way of attacking America’s culture and femininity, as the full niqab, burqa and abaya are a means of dehumanizing women, enforcing the devalued female to cede control to the male in the Islamic shame-honor society, and denying her any societal interactions. The garment serves as an isolation chamber, causing sensory deprivation problems and disrupting bonding with her infant, even if she removes the shroud at home. There is also a high physical price to pay, for the wearer is deprived of the absorption of Vitamin D in northern climes, thereby causing pelvic fractures during childbirth, and triggering iron deficiencies and hypocalcaemic seizures in the child.

The cost of naïvely introducing these sheaths into American society will eventually destroy the thriving fashion industry as we know it, eliminate the entertainment industry, and affect all other related businesses, in creativity and in employment, until our country is transformed into another backward Islamic country. Conquest is achieved not only through war, but also through stealth, slowly, through government, business, schools, and now the shopping sector. But there will be blood on the hands of those who acquiesce — their own and the blood of their loved ones.

Hate Preachers in German Mosques, Part 1

A couple of days ago a “radical” mosque in Berlin was raided by the police. The following news report gives a brief account of that raid.

Many thanks to MissPiggy for translating these videos, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

I don’t think it’s any coincidence that the As-Sahaba Mosque was raided just after a ZDF investigative report aired on television. ZDF sent undercover reporters into various mosques to listen to what was preached in them, and record the speakers. The video below is the first half of that report.

The makers of the documentary repeatedly point out that these hate preachers and their mosques are monitored by the security authorities, but no action is taken against them unless a deadly terrorist attack occurs.

The Star Trek Connection

Our Israeli correspondent MC sends this meditation on Star Trek, mass immigration, utopias, and related topics.

The Star Trek Connection

by MC

“Religion is the opiate of the people” said a famous Communist, and then proceeded to create a new political religion.

Religions are always messy. They are messy because the elites get hold of them and pervert them into their own personal fiefdoms, and those fiefdoms are then twisted to become ambitions of their leaders. The relevant ‘god’ is pushed into a backroom and only occasionally dusted off and allowed to come to the party, but only at the convenience of said elite.

Then there are the wacky video religions, of which the Cult of the Trekkie is one of the bigger ones.

But has anybody else noticed that there is an agenda here? Is our home world to become that of the fantasy TV series, portrayed as a utopian community where there is no money, no borders, and everybody has everything they could ever want, subject to the replicator functioning correctly?

I don’t know which came first, the warp drive or the patronising influence of the Vulcans (the intellectual elite), but both appear as pivotal in a ‘godless’ community (do Klingons see it as Federation ‘rootbeer’ supremacy?). And above all, are Kirk and his band of politically correct brothers (at the time) guiding us wisely through the mayhem of the present to a bright and glorious future, complete with the ‘moderate Klingon’ who sets an example of tolerance for us all?

Of course. the reality is that there are no warp drives and no Vulcans (and no ‘moderate’ Klingons) except as a bunch of pixels and neurons in the minds of our wonderous elites and their flocks, and there will be no magic wands that can be waved to clear up the mess that such trekkie socialism will once more create in our own backyards.

The dominance of the elitist obsession with the otherwise abstract ideas of ‘racism’ and ‘equality’ produce a wonderful inversion where non-trekkies — those race groups which are not part of the Federation — are always portrayed as imperfect, even if perhaps redeemable, but always as inferior and backwards. To be nationalist is to automatically be fascist, and also to be irreconcilably stupid.

The Federation culture is so superior that no other idea can be tolerated, and all must be encouraged (forced) to come into the fold.

So we have a politics of provocation where, as in a game of tennis, you are looking to make your opponent make mistakes. In the corrosive politics of the now, it is something which enables you to point the finger and shout “Nazi” or some such other inappropriate but demeaning slander, even if that insult itself is so misused as to be virtually meaningless.

We are watching this happen right now. Hamas, a known terrorist organisation and oppressor of ‘Palestinians’ is once more playing the blame game, and once more the gullible (and the malicious elite) appear to be falling for it. Thus Hamas is a terrorist organisation only when they are hitting non-Israeli targets, but when they are lashing out at Jooz, they suddenly become freedom fighters. This is the real ‘racism’. And this, from a supposedly multicultural country where the ardent multiculturalists of the UK Labour party just cannot keep their virulent anti-Semitism (the real racism here) under wraps. And as for the UN, well, what else can we expect but to have to pay continuously and heavily for the privilege of having our posteriors battered by the ‘Bandung generation’.

A Cornucopia of European Cultural Enrichment, Advent Edition

1. A hot time at the asylum center in Bamberg

Eight culture-enriching “youths” were arrested after causing a bit of a rumpus in an asylum facility in Bamberg. In their boyish high spirits the mischievous lads set the building on fire, and then threw rocks and other implements of destruction at the police. All eight suspects are from Eritrea.

The elder Mr. Chekatt sports a full Salafist beard dyed red with henna. He may also have a biscuit-sized zebiba on his forehead, but we can’t tell, because he’s wearing (of all things) a Che Guevara retard-hat.

What’s the likelihood that he shares his late son’s religio-political opinions?

Gaudete Sunday 2018

Advent is/was a time of somber reflection.

To break the grey, cold monotony of this part of the Liturgical cycle, we come to the third Sunday of Advent, when the altar hangings briefly turn from penitential purple to a lovely rose color.

I had planned to post an excerpt of Bach’s “Magnificat” but came across this in the mix. A cappella voices are always a treat, and none more so than the King’s Singers, here, singing the ancient “Gaudete”:

Gaudete, gaudete Christos est natus
Ex Maria virginae, gaudete.
Gaudete, gaudete Christos est natus
Ex Maria virginae, gaudete.

Tempus ad est gratiae hoc quod optabamus,
Carmina laetitiae devote redamus.

Gaudete, gaudete Christos est natus
Ex Maria virginae, gaudete.
Gaudete, gaudete Christos est natus
Ex Maria virginae, gaudete.

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

From the wiki entry:

Gaudete (English: /ˈɡaʊdeɪteɪ/; Ecclesiastical Latin: [gawˈdetɛ] “rejoice” in Latin) is a sacred Christmas carol, which is thought to have been composed in the 16th century, but could easily have existed as a monophonic hymn in the late medieval period, with polyphonic alto, tenor, and bass parts added during the 15th century, particularly due to its Medieval Latin lyrics. The song was published in Piae Cantiones, a collection of Finnish/Swedish sacred songs published in 1581. No music is given for the verses, but the standard tune comes from older liturgical books.

The Latin text is a typical medieval song of praise, which follows the standard pattern for the time – a uniform series of four-line stanzas, each preceded by a two-line refrain (in the early English carol this was known as the burden). Carols could be on any subject, but typically they were about the Virgin Mary, the Saints or Yuletide themes.

Exposing and Slut-Shaming: How to Enforce Sharia in the Netherlands

The following video describes the way young Muslim women in the Netherlands are shamed by the exposure of intimate information — including nude photos of themselves — that is spread around the Internet via social media. The end result, whether the slut-shamers realize it or not, is to enforce Islamic law as it pertains to women.

It’s worth noting that such behaviors occur within a parallel society that interacts with Dutch culture, but is not part of it. Islamic inhabitants of the Netherlands exist in a separate world that is growing more and more distinct each year from the Dutch society that hosts it.

Sharia Swimming Rules Enforced Against Native German Family in Bremen

The video below concerns a father who was denied the right to participate in a parent-child swimming group because Muslim women who brought their children there would be disturbed by his presence.

There are two things worth observing about this incident. The first is the fact that the Muslim mothers had previously accepted the presence of a man amongst them, and then later changed their minds. Presumably they had been enjoying a social situation that functioned according to traditional German norms, where men and women can relax and interact with each other. It seems likely that their husbands then forbade them to engage in such shameful behavior any longer. If the Muslim community in Bremen behaves like Muslim communities elsewhere, there would have been a threat of violence, explicit or implied, against wives who failed to comply. The husbands may even have been the ones who complained to the local authorities, but the report doesn’t mention that.

The second thing to notice is the fact that this incident actually made the news in ultra-politically-correct Germany. Not only was it reported, but the husband was treated favorably, rather than being presented as a WAYCIST and possible AfD voter.

This is because Germans are sticklers for following the rules; it is part of the German character. Forcing the man out of the swim group violated existing codified rules, and was therefore clearly wrong. Until sharia rules are codified in German law — which will probably happen within the little girl’s lifetime — Germans will not easily accept being forced to abide by them.

Rasmus Paludan on Parliament Hill — With No Antifas

Rasmus Paludan is a Danish lawyer and anti-sharia activist whose videos have been featured a number of times in this space. He’s well-known for going into culturally enriched neighborhoods in Denmark (for example, Nørrebro and Vollsmose) and saying provocative things about Islam and Mohammed. Needless to say, his appearances usually require police protection.

The first video below was recorded on Parliament Hill in Ottawa last Saturday during the rally in opposition to Justin “Baby Doc” Trudeau’s immigration policies. Mr. Paludan’s talk required police protection this time, too, but not so much from culture-enrichers as from the antifas, who showed up in force to Bash the Fash.

The second video shows officers of the Parliamentary Protective Service confronting and then ejecting the antifas, who were unable to restrain their kinetic enthusiasm in their encounters with the police. They were removed before the English-language portion of the rally started.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading the first video.

PPS vs. Antifas:

The Church of Sweden Welcomes the Islamic Call to Prayer

Many thanks to Tania Groth for translating this article from Fria Tider:

The church committee voted yes to Islam: “Great for more people to meet the love of Allah”

During the church meeting in November, the Swedish Democrats’ (SD) critical motion to vote on the Islamic call for prayer was voted down, according to the Christian newspaper Dagen (The Day). Among the arguments of the other participants was the opportunity for more people to meet the “love of Allah”.

The church committee is the highest decision-making body of the Swedish Church.

Prior to the November meeting, the Swedish Democrats, who had 24 mandates, had suggested that the Church of Sweden should take a critical stance towards the Islamic call to prayer.

However, the motion was voted down by a large majority. 206 voted against [the Sweden Democrats] and 26 for [the call to prayer].

Among those who argued against the motion there were Artemis Lumarker from the Open Church, a nomination group within the Swedish Church.

“Imagine how amazing that more people can meet the love of Allah and God, and what we get out of the meeting with each other,” he said, according to Dagen, and also claimed that SD is trying to “dehumanize” other people.

The open church is working towards the “vision of an open church where all people are welcome”, they write on their website.

A number of people engaged in the discussion during the meeting.

On the one hand there was Aron Emilsson of the Swedish Democrats, who said that the Church of Sweden was renouncing its own faith by supporting the Islamic call to prayer. To do this should not be the task of the church, was his opinion.

His party colleague Camilla Berard Granström argued that Islam has spread more quickly with the help of the Swedish Church.

On the other hand, the Social Democrat Isak Öhrlund explained to Dagen, the church should be “a progressive and open force” in society, and therefore one should not be critical of a call to prayer.

Jews in the AfD: “The German Zeitgeist is Fashioned by Cowards”

The following speech was given on the occasion of the formation of a Jewish sub-group (if it were the EDL, it would be called a “division”) of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany).

Oz-Rita, who translated and subtitled the video, includes this context:

In October, Michael Klonovsky, journalist, author and personal advisor to Alexander Gauland, leader of the AfD parliamentary group in the Bundestag, welcomed the foundation of the Federal Association “Jews in the AfD” with this witty, hard-hitting speech. It was given at the inaugural meeting of “Juden in der AfD” on 7 October 2018 in Wiesbaden, and published by the AfD Kompakt TV on 28 November 2018.

With the present average attention span this speech may be on the long side, but I think it is (apart from being witty and hard-hitting) also quite representative of the absurdity that we get from media/politics, i.e.: A German party welcomes a Jewish sub-branch in their ranks, and they are called (and so believed by the herd) to be the real Nazis. One of their leaders (Alice Weidel) was described publicly as a “NAZI SCHLAMPE / NAZI SLUT”; when she went to court, she lost. Even the “public Jewry” (Judenräte) agitate against the “Nazi AfD”.

While the speaker is not Jewish, he is married to a Russian Jewish pianist.

‘Tis The First Sunday of Advent, 2018

For those who follow the Liturgical Calendar, Advent marks the beginning of the New Year. And Bach most famously observes it:

Psalm 25: 3-9

Show me your ways, O Lord,
and teach me your paths.

Lead me in your truth and teach me,
for you are the God of my salvation;
in you have I trusted all the day long.

Remember, O Lord, your compassion and love,
for they are from everlasting.

Remember not the sins of my youth and my transgressions;
remember me according to your love
and for the sake of your goodness, O Lord.

Gracious and upright is the Lord;
therefore he teaches sinners in his way.

He guides the humble in doing right
and teaches his way to the lowly.

All the paths of the Lord are love and faithfulness
to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.

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

Advent is my favorite season. Perhaps it is a child’s anticipation of Christmas that still speaks to my heart.
