Sanction the Axis of Mercenary and Terrorist Evil: Azerbaijan, Turkey, and Georgia

by David Boyajian

Azerbaijan deployed thousands of mercenaries in last year’s 44-day war that it and Turkey waged against Artsakh/Nagorno-Karabagh and Armenia.

Azerbaijan thereby flagrantly violated the UN’s International Convention against the Recruitment, Use, Financing and Training of Mercenaries (UNMERC) which it signed in 1997.

Forty-six countries have signed UNMERC, including Belgium, Cyprus, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, and Poland.

These mercenaries are not clean-cut military men. They’re terrorists, thugs, jihadis, and fanatics.

The Evidence

They include former ISIS commander Sayf Balud, and members of the Hamza Division, Sultan Murad Brigade, Al-Amshat Militia, Free Syrian Army (FSA/SNA), and other factions.

Many were brought into Azerbaijan before the war began on September 27, 2020. Unknown numbers remain there despite the November 9 armistice.

Armenian forces captured two mercenaries who came from Syria’s Hama and Idlib provinces.

The independent UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has confirmed Azerbaijan’s employing mercenaries. In October, it numbered them at over 2,050 with 145 dead.

Columbia University’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights has named the chief mercenary commanders, such as Fehim Isa of the Sultan Murad Brigade, and their organizations.

Video and audio recordings have identified many of the mercenaries.

Azeri soldiers have forced some of them into battle at gunpoint and lied about the combat conditions. “Haji… don’t come,” warned one mercenary. “We have been deceived… this is a meat grinder.”

BBC Misinformation: Mohammed Film “Innocence of Muslims”

The following essay by Michael Copeland was originally published in shorter form by LibertyGB in 2012.

The film trailer, “Innocence of Muslims”, depicts episodes in the life of Mohammed. Blackened without cause, it was wrongfully blamed by Hillary Clinton for the unrelated jihad attack on the US Embassy in Benghazi that killed four Americans. The Obama administration, disgracing the First Amendment, publicly apologised for it in Pakistan. The film, albeit low-budget, is important for being a pioneer work.

BBC Misinformation: Mohammed Film “Innocence of Muslims”

By Michael Copeland

“Q&A: Anti-Islam film”

On their news website the BBC have an article headed “Q&A: Anti-Islam film”. This heading neatly furnishes the desired viewpoint for the readers, to colour their understanding, and probably remain in their memories. Typical of the BBC’s articles on Islam, the author is unidentified. Consequently there is no disclaimer limiting to the author the opinions expressed: they are presented as the BBC’s own.

The writer, obviously not one of the BBC’s usual named film critics, carefully provides a slant by announcing the film as “anti-Islam”. In the text it is further criticised as “satirising” and “mocking” Mohammed: the writer calls his depicted actions “insulting”. The film, Innocence of Muslims, is a very low budget trailer. It is a brief biographical documentary, portraying incidents from the life of Mohammed, as recorded in Islam’s source texts. The BBC, who produce both satires and documentaries, have the facilities to verify the accuracy of these pejorative critiques. Their editors failed. The film does not satirise, insult, or mock Mohammed’s actions: it is not anti-Islam.

The article says:

“The footage appears to depict Islam as a religion of violence and hate.”

Are the BBC being threatened? Can they not decide whether the film depicts Islam as a religion of violence and hate, or only “appears to” do so? The writer does not say the film “appears to” be anti-Islam, or “appears to” be satirising and mocking. Why the uncertainty? Of course, this is a false critique. The BBC’s unnamed writer is blowing smoke. This bluff is there to convey, falsely, an impression of injured surprise, so as to put people off from checking for themselves. It is there to affirm and shore up the carefully planted propaganda deception, “Islam is peace”, with which George W. Bush was duped, and, after him, Hillary Clinton and a line of British politicians. This lie and its companion, “perversion of Islam”, have run and run. The writer does not want them to be disturbed.

“Let’s be clear,” said Hillary Clinton, “Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.” Hear Tony Blair: “…there is not a problem with Islam… there is no doubt about its true and peaceful nature… The doctrine and teachings of Islam are those of peace and harmony… It is a whole teaching dedicated to building peace in the world…” (quoted by Douglas Murray, The Strange Death of Europe). Of the terrorists’ motivation Blair says: “It’s an ideology based in a complete perversion of the proper faith of Islam… …perversion of Islam is the source of a lot of the problems in the Middle East”.

David Cameron repeated the same narrative, in his best emphatic air of authority: “They are killing and slaughtering thousands of people… They boast of their brutality. They claim to do this in the name of Islam. That is nonsense. Islam is a religion of peace. They are not Muslims. They are monsters.”

So, too, Theresa May, adopting her authoritative and confident tone, “It is an ideology that is a perversion of Islam… Islam is entirely compatible with British values and our national way of life.”

These are all falsehoods. They are what smooth-talking Islamic deceivers, like serial liar Tariq Ramadan, advisor to both Blair and Cameron, have been feeding to politicians under Islam’s doctrine of “Permissible Lying” (Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, r8). Islam is all sweetness, you see: it could not possibly be a religion of violence and hate. This also complies with the tyrannical political correctness that prevents true descriptions from being expressed.

Islam authorises deception of kafirs. This has an Arabic name, taqiyya. “Using deception to mask intended goals” is instructed in the Muslim Brotherhood’s secret “Explanatory Memorandum” captured in a police raid. The deceived politicians’ rosy picture is completely at variance with Islam’s track record, its source texts, and its leaders’ announcements, all accessible on the internet. The BBC themselves were told directly by Anjem Choudary: “Islam does not mean ‘Peace’: it means ‘Submission’.” Apparently BBC editors know better.

The film Innocence of Muslims is accurate.

“Violence is the heart of Islam”, says Ayatollah Yazdi of Iran, advisor to Iran’s Ahmadinejad. “Battle,” — which is violent — “animosity, and hatred …are the basis of our religion”, explained Osama bin Laden in his open letter after 9/11. “Islam is a religion of blood for the infidels. Prophet had sword to kill people,” proclaimed Ayatollah Khomeini; “a religion of war and conflict”, said Caliph al Baghdadi; “a permanent war institution”, instructs Al Azhar in Cairo. “Islam is a religion of power, fighting, jihad, beheading and bloodshed”, says Imam Hussein Bin Mahmoud, a prominent writer. “Muslims… must have… enmity and hatred” of kafirs, instructs islamqa.com. “As a Muslim”, explained Anjem Choudary to the BBC’s own Newsnight, “I must have hatred for everything that is non-Islam”. Don’t the BBC’s editors listen?

The Koran, which anyone can consult online, is the authority. The “excellent pattern” praised in Koran 60:4 is: “between us and you enmity and hatred forever…”. Koran 9.5, a late verse which overrides — “abrogates” — all peaceful verses elsewhere, because they are earlier, says: “Kill the idolaters wherever you find them…”. Christians count as idolaters because Islam teaches, erroneously, that they worship the cross. There are many, many more verses which repeat these themes. The verses are — all of them — part of Islamic law, with the death penalty for denying even one (Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, o8.7(7)). Can the BBC’s editors not read them? Do they patronisingly assume that their viewers cannot read them?

The article goes on to say:

Didier Lemaire: “The Republic Has Failed in Trappes”

Didier Lemaire is a teacher of philosophy in the French city of Trappes. Mr. Lemaire responded to the beheading of the teacher Samuel Paty by writing an open letter to his fellow teachers decrying the Islamization of his school, his city, and the whole of France. As a result, he now has to have a police escort when traveling to and from school.

It’s worth noting that Didier Lemaire identifies himself as “center-left”. Secularism (laïcité) in France is a progressive institution. Therefore, Islamization — which attacks and undermines laïcité — should be widely denounced by the Left. Generally speaking, however, this isn’t the case. Mr. Lemaire is a courageous exception to that rule.

The following interview with Didier Lemaire was conducted on a talk show on Sud Radio. Many thanks to Oz-Rita for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Below is the open letter from Didier Lemaire, as published by L’Obs:

On the eve of a new school year, grieving the death of Samuel Paty, Didier Lemaire, professor of philosophy at Trappes (Yvelines), calls for resistance in the face of the Islamist threat.

by Didier Lemaire
November 01, 2020

Didier Lemaire has been a professor of philosophy at Trappes for twenty years. As early as 2018, with Jean-Pierre Obin, Inspector of National Education and the author of a report on the attacks on secularism at school, he wrote a letter to the President of the Republic asking him to act urgently to protect his students from the ideological and social pressure exerted on them.

Today, he asks himself how teachers could compensate for the absence of a state strategy to defeat Islamism.

Dear fellow teachers,

A teacher, our colleague, died simply for teaching the principles that are the foundation of our republic and our history: freedom of thought and its corollary, freedom of expression.

Through him, these assassins targeted all the teachers who every day pass on this part of themselves that others have also passed on to them. This part which is the best part of ourselves because it makes us unique beings open to all other human beings.

Thought, freed from the fear of authority, ignorance, obscurantism, illusion and imprisonment in certainty, is indeed the most personal part of ourselves, because first of all it depends on us to build our judgment. In a society where we must think like others, without having the right to doubt and dialogue, no one can become himself.

But becoming a free individual is only possible under two conditions: a state based on the rule of law that prevents any community from confiscating the individual’s freedom by imposing a way of being and thinking, and a school that prepares every man to become a citizen by transmitting a humanistic, scientific, artistic and philosophical culture.

Yet the first of these conditions no longer exists in many neighborhoods. As a philosophy professor at Trappes for the past twenty years, I have witnessed the progression of an ever-stronger communitarian hold on consciences and bodies.

The year I arrived at the high school, the synagogue in Trappes was in flames and Jewish families were forced to leave. After the killings of 2015 and 2016, I became involved in preventive actions, notably through theater and meetings with historians and sociologists specializing in manipulation.

Noting that my efforts were coming up against forces beyond my control, in 2018, together with Jean-Pierre Obin I wrote to the President of the Republic to ask him to act urgently to protect our students from the ideological and social pressures exerted on them, pressures that were gradually cutting them off from the national community. Unfortunately, no effective action was taken to curb this phenomenon.

There are currently 400 S-file “radicalization” subjects in Trappes, who are freely roaming around, not counting the terrorism files. And our students live in a schizophrenic situation where the conflict of loyalties becomes unavoidable for them.

Here and Round Us

For a change of pace, Michael Copeland sends this Counterjihad poem.

Here and Round Us

by Michael Copeland

Invited in as a voter base by the Left,
Keeping their language, customs, and multiple wives,
Advised they could live off welfare, most of them do:
By postal voting fraud they elect their own.

Wilfully driving our teachers out of the schools,
They bully our children — some even ending their lives —
Ensnare our under-age girls as sexual slaves,
And attack our boys: Kriss Donald was tortured to death.

Inflicting on all of us meat that was cruelly slaughtered,
Expressing their strength in aggressive and menacing crowds,
They threaten and drive our people out of the towns,
And settle together to form their apartheid state.

They openly curse police and abuse the State,
Imposing by force their unconstitutional rules.
Misleadingly feeding the press with deliberate lies,
They blacken and smear any writers who tell the truth.

The texts they recite instruct them to ambush and kill us.
We are their enemy: this is their “Realm of War”.
Commanded to view us with hatred as lower than beasts,
They’re permitted to use deception, and lie to us all.

Disclaiming loyalty here to our state and laws,
Their men conspire to do killings at home and abroad:
They scheme and plan to murder with home-made bombs.
The intention is clear that we walk in fear of our lives.

They are here and round us.

Egyptian Court Favors Islamists: Al Sisi’s Statement to Macron Justifies Verdict

Below is the latest report by Ashraf Ramelah on the plight of Egyptian Copts.

Egyptian court favors Islamists: Al Sisi’s statement to Macron justifies verdict

by Dr. Ashraf Ramelah

Nearly five years ago now, I wrote about a courageous Coptic Christian woman and a brave Coptic Bishop who stood with her and her son in the “Bedouin arbitration” court after she fell victim to a heinous crime.

As justice is never served through the “Bedouin” process of arbitration, shortly thereafter the woman and her son brought a civil lawsuit against the perpetrators in the state court. This past December 2020, her case was lost in favor of Islamists. The religious deep state found the offenders innocent, and the court set them free.

The handing down of the acquittal judgment was the final act in the prolonged Al Karm village drama and eradicated any hope of healing sectarian differences among Egyptians. The verdict showed the decadence and indecency inhabiting Egyptian society. In conjunction with an unrelated statement made by Egypt’s president earlier the same month, this case revealed Egypt’s ugly truth.

It began with collective punishment and expiation in the streets

Al Karm is a small, miserable village in the Al Minya Governorate, which is one of the poorest governorates in Egypt. In Al Karm village, as in other parts of the country, Muslims and Christians live as neighbors. The common denominator of its villagers is simplicity of life permeated with poverty and ignorance. Such conditions aid in the diffusion of Salafi fundamentalists and Muslim Brotherhood influencers that are able to control behavior and handle religious matters.

In July 2016, a rumor started everything. It circulated that a relationship existed between a Christian man and Muslim woman — unacceptable to the Muslim community. Seeking reparations, a religious mob struck back.

After the targeted man was seized by the radicals and arrested by the police, his mother, a woman in her 70s, was stripped naked, dragged from her home and paraded through the village streets. As the mother of a Coptic man who had been convicted in the court of public opinion for a religious crime, she paid a dear price.

During this humiliating and brutal exercise the mob screamed “Allahu Akhbar,” signaling great satisfaction as if winning an Islamic invasion (Gazwa). State authorities and Al Azhar Sunni Institute both turned a blind eye. There were no statements of condemnation coming from either direction.

“Peace and tolerance” in the international media

Despite the benign image of Islam portrayed by Al Azhar propaganda around the world, local mosques in Egypt steadfastly continue to spew “hate speech” embedded in prayers against Christians and Jews through open-air mics blasting the streets during weekly Friday services.

December court ruling and Al Sisi’s morality lesson to France that same month

During their press conference in France on Dec 6, 2020, the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi offered a morality lesson to President Emmanuel Macron when a journalist asked each of them for his vision concerning religion and social issues. Macron responded:

“We consider the human value to be the most important of all … Any person has the right to choose the religion he wants to believe in … The religious issue should not be related to the political issue.”

Al Sisi countered Macron by stating that:

M1911

The following essay by our Israeli correspondent MC serves as an appropriate companion to H. Numan’s piece posted earlier tonight. It’s good to have persepctives from abroad on what’s happening here in the Nation Formerly Known as the United States of America.

American Socialism is like playing Russian Roulette with an automatic pistol: there are just too many individualists and too many pistols for a quiet transition to the average socialist utopia.

We have loaded the Biden bullet into the magazine of our 1911 pattern Colt along with a few blanks, and we put it to our collective temple thinking that the blanks are benign.

So here we are, all set. What chance do we have of surviving?

The USA is on the brink of a full-scale Fascist bullet in the bonce, but through ignorance and misdirection, they are unaware that even the blanks are dangerous. One can, if one is stupid enough, play Russian roulette with a revolver and get away with it most of the time, but a semi-automatic pistol is going to kill you every time you pull the trigger (sic), blank or ball.

I lived under socialism for decades; I saw it creep and corrode society until it destroyed the mechanisms that allowed the poor to prosper and the intelligent to be fulfilled.

It starts with education, the process of giving men and woman an asset that they can sell in the employment marketplace, an asset that does not go away, and can be sold and resold on a daily basis.

I profited enormously by being selected for an academic education, and from being groomed as a manager of men, as an intellectual capable of self-learning. But that door, the one that I came through, was eventually slammed shut by socialists, socialists who wanted the utopian equality of outcomes rather than the achievable equality of opportunity.

My paternal grandfather was a coalminer from Yorkshire (the other one, the Jewish one, was a Stoker in the Royal Navy). The miner was a convener of the ILP (Independent Labour Party); whereas the ‘Labour’ party was a country club for rich gentlemen who could not make it in the Liberal or Tory parties of the time, the ILP wanted to get real actual working men and women into Parliament. Arthur, my grandfather, believed in education, and he got his four sons and one of his two daughters through to ‘school certificate’ (high school graduation). My father’s education was interrupted by the War, but his younger brother went on to get a bachelor’s degree, unheard of at the time.

Socialism, with its roots in 19th-century romanticism, cannot admit to being wrong. Pragmatically, we all have different IQs and abilities, but within the socialist romance we are all born equal. Romance is a genre where outcomes follow predictable and desirable courses and the heroes and heroines all live happily ever after, but in politics, romanticism is dangerous, and the outcomes can be dire.

‘Equality’ is always a hard and elusive master. The romantics pictured a happy state led by an elite (themselves) of ‘virtuous’ administrators. A lovely comfortable picture — for cows and sheep!

Joseph, he of the ‘technicolor’ dreamcoat, was set apart by his father who recognized his potential. But his brothers just saw what they perceived as his, Joseph’s, arrogance. So they sold him into Egyptian slavery, they squandered their greatest family asset through petty jealousy.

But Joseph was blessed by Yahovah, and as such, he would have succeeded in any situation. His brothers would have prospered greatly if they had been a little less self-obsessed.

Imagine, if the brothers had revered Joseph instead of despising him, then Egypt would have come begging to them for food rather than their having to go to Egypt.

I lived in South Africa during the final years of Apartheid. It was an eye opener. Whilst apartheid stifled growth, it preserved identities and allowed cultural interaction at a level that was ‘defined’ by the idea that high walls made good neighbours; Africans were allowed to defecate in the gutter, whites were not. Apartheid has inbuilt elements of paternalism and socialism; as well as preserving cultural integrity, it gave a defined role to the Afrikaner (Boer = farmer).

The Facebook Spring in Egypt

Ashraf Ramelah sends a new report on the persecution of Copts and the suppression of free speech in Egypt.

Social media used to incite sectarian strife against Coptic Christians in Egypt

by Dr. Ashraf Ramelah

The most recent escalation of violence against Egyptian Copts living in Egypt occurred last month (November 2020) and was sparked by Facebook posts prompting Muslim radicals to retaliate for religious comments. After reading Christian “insults” Muslim goons set out to attack Coptic villages.

Christian Copts clarifying points on social media have been victims of sectarian hunts and ambushes by ruffians looking for a trigger to pull. Counterfeit pages that scammers produce bait Christians into commenting and then charge them with insulting Islam.

Copts are often tricked into responses by Islamists who have befriended them with hidden identities — sometimes showing a Christian cross to trick the page owner. Islamists harass and instigate in a scheme to entrap. Those are only the thugs at work. Additionally, the state’s “internet police” spy on Christian Facebook pages to target anti-Islam sentiments.

In other cases, Islamic hackers steal the page owner’s identity and make incendiary statements to frame a Facebook page owner and then track the Christian victim to his home. One such incident led to the village of Al Barsha in part of Al Minya Governorate (300 km south of Cairo).

It did not matter to Islam’s vigilantes that official sources confirmed the hacking of the Al Barsha villager’s Facebook account. Nor did it matter that the Al Barsha Christian did not make the remarks. Islamists set out to harm this Coptic family and displace them from their home just the same.

Molotov cocktails were thrown, the church was targeted as well, and the security police came in to prevent further damage.

Bedouin courts handle tech platform “offenses”

Conflicts instigated and executed by Muslim fundamentalists end up in the customary reconciliation sessions known as Bedouin courts. The Christian is always forced to plead guilty when innocent and pay dearly by handing over his home, farm or business to the criminals. The mandatory “peace” agreement of these arbitration sessions always sets the Islamic criminal free and punishes the innocent Christian family. This is precisely the purpose of the arbitration court.

Egypt’s Interior Ministry blames hostile countries; acknowledges Copts as targets

Last year the Egyptian Interior Ministry warned that thousands of Egyptian Facebook accounts were fakes. It added that “great numbers of these fake pages are outside the country and sponsored, funded and managed by countries that are hostile to Egypt.” The Interior Minister’s office went on to say that “such pages are used to spread rumors aiming to generate unrest by Muslim Brotherhood terrorist groups inciting acts of sabotage and violence and spreading chaos in the country, and especially against Copts.”

According to these statements, the stalking and scamming is generated by outside enemies and followed through by inside terror elements. All of it is religious warfare. Meanwhile, what are religious leaders of Al Azhar Institute saying or doing? Islamic censorship and terrorizing due to religious discrimination on social media platforms will not stop unless leaders show the way. The esteemed center of Sunni Islamic scholarship alone holds the power of interpretation of Quranic teachings. Supremacy teachings unfortunately do not support or aid followers to achieve peace and harmony with fellow citizens.

Why Azerbaijan is Unfit to Rule over the Armenians of Artsakh

Below is David Boyajian’s latest report on the aftermath of the recent conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over Artsakh.

Why Azerbaijan is Unfit to Rule Over the Armenians of Artsakh

by David Boyajian

Corrupt, sadistic, and run by a hereditary dictatorship, Azerbaijan is unfit to rule over others, least of all Armenian Christians.

Yet that iniquity could materialize due to the recent 44-day war by Azerbaijan, Turkey, and terrorist jihadis against the Artsakh Republic (Nagorno-Karabagh) and Armenia. The November 9, 2020 armistice could force democratic, Armenian-governed Artsakh (pop. 150,000) into Azerbaijan’s (pop. 10 million) despotic grip. Since the war began, though, mainstream media have rarely pointed out Azerbaijan’s depravity and long-standing abuse of Armenians.

In the 1920s, Stalin transferred the ancient Armenian provinces of Artsakh — 96% Armenian — and Nakhichevan to Turkey’s friend, Azerbaijan. The delusional tyrant mistakenly believed that this would lure Turkey into the USSR’s web. That injustice has brought Artsakh nothing but agony. Even before the transfer, Azerbaijan had been massacring Armenians in Artsakh and Baku.

Unlike 3,000-year-old Armenia, no country named Azerbaijan existed before 1918. Its inhabitants didn’t even call themselves Azeris until the 1930s.

Artsakh’s Long Nightmare

Artsakh was officially autonomous within Soviet Azerbaijan, but the latter held the real power. Artsakh’s Armenians were persecuted due to raw Azeri fanaticism, not the Soviet system.

  • Armenians sank from 96% to 76% of Artsakh’s population by 1988, the result of repression, deportations, economic warfare, and murder by Azerbaijan.
  • Then-KGB Major General Heydar Aliyev (Azeri dictator Ilham Aliyev’s father) acknowledged importing Azeris into Artsakh to replace Armenians that he’d exiled.
  • Azerbaijan maliciously closed many Armenian schools, orphanages, and libraries.
  • Armenian language inscriptions on ancient monuments were depicted as Azeri.
  • Museums were looted of artifacts that proved Artsakh to be an ancient Armenian province.
  • Even the name Artsakh was banned.
  • Large quantities of meat, dairy products, and wool were directed to Azerbaijan instead of to needy local Armenians.
  • Baku frequently imprisoned local Armenian leaders who protested, but gave Azeri gangs free rein.

Breaking Free

Artsakh voted to exit Azerbaijan in accordance with Soviet law in 1988 and international law in 1991 as the USSR dissolved. In response, Azerbaijan massacred Armenian civilians in Artsakh, Baku, Ganja, and Sumgait. The ensuing war ended in 1994 in victory for Artsakh’s Armenians. Armenians fled the rest of Azerbaijan, and Azeris fled Armenia.

Artsakh became self-governing, reformist, and widely respected. It maintained representative offices in Washington, D.C., Europe, and elsewhere. Azerbaijan proceeded to gorge on revenue from its gas and oil fields. Yet it still mirrored its Soviet self: repressive, corrupt, violent, and anti-Armenian. Artsakh became doubly determined to never again submit to Azerbaijan.

Palestine Comes to Antwerp

The following article concerns two Palestinain brothers in Antwerp who have been harassing Jews on the street. It includes a video with an audio entirely in Arabic, so it has not been subtitled.

Gary Fouse, who translated the text, includes this explanatory note:

Michael Freilich is a member of the conservative New Flemish Alliance Party (N-VA) and the former editor of Joods Actueel, a Flemish-language Jewish news outlet in Belgium.

The translated article from Joods Actueel:

Video of Palestinian skaters harassing Jews — Millions of views

In YouTube videos we see Amjad and Adham Saleh, twin brothers from Gaza, literally making the streets and sidewalks of the Jewish neighborhood of Antwerp unsafe. They ride with a Palestinian flag at high speed past people and shout, “Free Palestine”. They harass Jewish passersby, do not obey traffic rules, and are a downright danger to their fellow citizens. The videos have been viewed more than two million times.

N-VA Member of Parliament Michael Freilich condemns the behavior and warns against the importation of the Middle East conflict onto our streets. “These twin brothers are from Gaza and fled five years ago to Belgium. They were granted asylum here, housing, and a job. So it is especially regrettable they harass people, and they should know better. Jews in Antwerp are not Israeli citizens, but rather Flemish.”

Jewish Forum

The FJO (Forum of Jewish Organizations in Belgium) lodged a complaint with the UNIA and asked that the case be investigated. According to lawyers, there are several crimes, such as offenses against traffic rules, and harassment, with the aggravating circumstance that Jews were specifically targeted (anti-Semitism). And this could be described as an unauthorized demonstration. Finally, the videos concerned may raise questions about the assimilation of refugees.

Invitation

Finally, Freilich extends his hand to the brothers. “It would be nice if they made a video about and with the Jewish community instead of inciting against them. Surely, given the enormous number of followers they have reached with their videos. That would be a positive message for society.”

Assembly With Menaces

The article below by Michael Copeland was originally published at Liberty GB in February, 2015. It refers to demonstrations after the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris, the fifth anniversary of which is coming up on January 7.

Assembly With Menaces

by Michael Copeland

A large number of Muslims gathered outside the gates of Downing Street on Sunday February 8, 2015, in a gender-segregated “show of strength”, blocking half of Whitehall for rather too long — some three hours. This was a month after the mass murder by Muslims in Paris of the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists and of the Jews in the Kosher Hypermarket, and not long after the release of the film of the deliberate burning alive by the Islamic State of a Jordanian pilot, confined in a cage.

Had they come to express sympathy for the victims? Condolences for the next of kin? Solidarity with free speech? Disgust at the barbaric burning? No. Remember, like all similar Muslim events, this event was not in the least spontaneous: this was “organised”, that is, instructed, in the mosques, and at the behest of the Muslim Action Forum. They had come to make an assembly with menaces.

The Muslim Action Forum is lying

The Muslim Action Forum made an announcement, but they were lying. Lying, however, is not only permitted under Islamic law when it is done to non-Muslims in the cause of Islam, it is in some circumstances obligatory. It has an Arabic name: taqiyya. The Muslim Action Forum makes claims that are supposed to be so sweet and reasonable. They are nothing of the sort.

Incitement, hatred and provocation

“We need to move from actions of incitement, hatred and provocation”, say the Muslim Action Forum. Oh yes? Who are “we”? Muslims? How can that be? Islam’s own texts repeatedly include incitement, instruct hatred and commend it, and express provocation.

Incitement


“Kill unbelievers wherever you find them,” incites verse 5 of Koran chapter — “sura” — 9, the Sura At Tawba. This is the one cited by the killer of Lee Rigby. It overrides and “abrogates” all the verses of peace and forgiveness elsewhere in the Koran, because it is later in time sequence. This is the effect of Islam’s doctrine of Abrogation. The doctrine, like the Koran, is part of Islamic Law. The teachings of the Koran are “true, …universal and trans-time,” explains Ahmed Saad, of North London Central Mosque. That verse is straightforward and legally binding incitement.

I Am Not an Apostate From Islam, I Am a Free French Citizen!

Below is an excellent rant by an ex-Muslim in France, who is identified only as Samia. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Résistance Républicaine:

I am not an apostate from Islam, I am a free French citizen!

by Samia
December 13, 2020

[Photo caption: The spoofs are out! Their indignation is variable geometry. We never see them denounce the serious attacks on the freedom of those who disbelieve in Islam and live in a country decreed Islamic. Curiously, never!]

What happens in Muslim countries for all those who don’t believe in Islam? Atheists, agnostics, Christians…What happens? Surely not what happens to Muslims in France!

While in our country, where freedom of religion is consecrated, where each can exercise his religion without any fear, whatever the professional liars say, apostates from Islam, infidels, are, in Muslim lands, mistreated, persecuted, hunted like animals, every day, in deafening silence, deafening! Who speaks of it? Nobody!

On the other hand, with each day that passes, we are bombarded, we are hit with the poor Muslim victims, the good joke of Islamophobia. Yes, a joke, a farce, a complete deception. France has been totally transformed, to my chagrin, in contact with followers of Mohammed. Endless mosques, halal butchers, streets infested by veils, all kinds of beards, and so on. Oh yes, and not to forget all the incessant demands for accommodations, which are increasingly satisfied. We want this, and we want that, and then this, and then that. It never stops! And incidentally, when we are not happy, a little cut here and there, and voilà. And to top it all off, the professional mourners, the dhimmis on service go into action at the slightest critique of all the mess brought about, created by a portion of the followers of the Lord Mohammed.

There is no way to get a word in edgewise when it involves those who call on Islamic dogma. The disciples of Mohammed have the boulevards to impose their doctrine. It is flagrant when you see all the accommodations made for their pleasure, when one lists all the waivers given to them, even if these go against the essence of French values. It is an incredible thing in a country like France, all those who find fault, in every manner, muzzled, ordered to return to the ranks of dhimmitude.

Those who are anti-Islam are left in the lion’s den when those who never cease imposing their vision of the world are supported with force by much of the media, anti-racism associations (or rather followers of stupidity), as well as political parties on the right as well as the left, without forgetting a good portion of our dear elected officials. Don’t forget those. They are so charming when it comes to defending the indefensible, and so acerbic with those looking truth in the face. Islam is a deadly doctrine.

I should not forget to say that on our territory, the same as with any Western country, a believer in Islam is called a Muslim. He is respected in his belief. He lives his faith normally, nothing is imposed upon him. On the contrary, we bend over backward that he may continue to be what he wants to be. We don’t call him a renegade, infidel, apostate, ungodly, kafir, or whatnot. Why? Because we are not in the presence of a totalitarian system like that of Islam, which imposes its teaching upon everything. We are in a secular country where each can believe in what he wants, yes, yes, even the tsetse fly if he likes. We are in a country where religious affairs are a private matter, of freedom for each person. It is the exact opposite, as opposed to Islamic doctrine, which imposes itself on all individuals, both in the private sphere as well as public. All human laws are inspired directly by the Koran, from sharia. Each precept is obligatory; there is never a dispensation. Everything is taken as-is without asking questions.

Moreover, in Islamic countries, one does not talk of individuals, citizens, or very little. One speaks of Mohammedans, the believers, the faithful, the Muslims, which amounts to saying that one could not be anything else.

The Anniversary of Egypt’s Maspero Massacre

Ashraf Ramelah revisits the massacre of Egyptian Copts that took place nine years ago this fall, and consequent events since then.

On the Anniversary of Egypt’s Maspero Massacre, Christian Copts continue to give Al-Sisi a pass

by Dr. Ashraf Ramelah

This autumn marked the ninth anniversary of the brutal murders of innocent Christian Copts in a tragedy known as the Maspero Massacre, when thousands of peaceful Copts and Muslims gathered on October 9, 2011 and marched towards Cairo’s Tahrir Square. On three separate occasions around that date Egyptians protested the previous eight months of ramped-up violence against Coptic Orthodox Christians. At their third and final protest, army tanks overran the peaceful crowd, killing 30 and injuring 130, while another military division arrested and “disappeared” Christian demonstrators.

The Egyptian military had assumed power in January of that same year when the late President Hosni Mubarak stepped down eighteen days after the breakout of the Arab Spring. In Egypt’s transition to elections, the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), twenty-two high ranked officers (top generals including Lieutenant Major Abed El Fatah Al-Sisi), took control of all branches of government and the media.

There was a huge surge in attacks against Copts during the aftermath of the Arab Spring. The SCAF government was negligent for unreasonable delays in locating and pursuing suspects. Their failure became the green light for even more hostile elements to open fire on Copts and the churches.

In response to this, thousands of Orthodox Christians were led by two priests to gather and parade through the streets to protest these crimes. When the dust settled on “Anger Day” (the third protest) near the Maspero Radio and Television office building, there were more than one hundred arrests of lawful demonstrators by the military. Christians were hauled away and interrogated. Many were never seen again. Some were beaten and then released.

Six years later: Egypt’s presidential campaign revisits Maspero Massacre

Six years after the Maspero Massacre during the pre-election period in January of 2018, SCAF’s nefarious connection to the Maspero Massacre was made public by an insider, Lieutenant General Samy Annan, a political figure and SCAF military general. Annan’s 2018 campaign for president against incumbent Al-Sisi leaked incriminating information against the president for being the very one behind the military’s Maspero aggression.

The information was actually leaked to the public by a staff member of Annan’s presidential campaign. This staff member was subsequently arrested, tried and jailed for releasing classified military documents to the media. Annan was arrested and sentenced to house arrest by a secret military court. His political career was ruined as his campaign and political party were terminated.

Rabbi Attacked in Vienna by Nondescript Woman

A Viennese rabbi was attacked last Thursday by a woman who threatened him with a knife. It’s frustrating to watch videos or read articles about the incident, because there is so little information about the perpetratrix. She is said to be about 5’7″ and to have worn a grey coat. OK, that narrows it down. And she shouted “inappropriate slogans”. Such as…?

Did she yell “Allahu Akhbar”? Or, perhaps, “You can take your gefilte fish and stuff it”?

Actually, the lack of a definitive description is a sign that she is probably a culture-enricher. After all, if she had been a blond blue-eyed native Austrian, we would surely have been told all the details.

Below is an article from Die Presse about the attack on the rabbi. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translation:

Anti-Semitic attack on rabbi

During the attack, woman screamed anti-Semitic words

Vienna: An anti-Semitic attack upon a rabbi occurred on Thursday in Vienna-Landstrasse [a district in Vienna], the Interior Ministry announced Friday. A woman threatened the rabbi at a bus stop with a knife, tore his kippah from his head, and tried to kick him. At the same time, the attacker screamed, “Slaughter all Jews.” The rabbi was uninjured.

Sharp reactions

“Jew-hatred and anti-Semitism have no place in our society. My solidarity is with all Jewesses and Jews living in Austria,” tweeted Federal President Alexander Van der Bellen. Federal Chancellor Sebastian Kurz had already reacted on Thursday night: “I condemn the anti-Semitic attack on a rabbi in Vienna in the sharpest terms. We must fight anti-Semitism with all our determination and do everything to enable Jewish life here in Austria to be safe. Because Europe without Jews is no longer Europe,” declared Kurz. Interior Minister Karl Nehammer added: “In addition to strengthened protection for synagogues, all measures will be taken to quickly clear up this attack that was obviously motivated by anti-Semitism. There is no tolerance for anti-Semitism.” The president of the Vienna Jewish Religious Community, Oskar Deutsch, described the attack as “a disturbing incident that has unsettled many.”

The attacker is about 50 years old and 170 centimeters [5’7″] tall, and wore a grey coat.
