Generation Retreat

The following article was published at Alexander Wendt’s website. It points out that the only kind of “integration” that occurs in Germany is when immigrants overwhelm, drive out, or absorb the native German population. In Berlin, “integration” means turning Germans into Turks.

Generation Retreat

by Air Tuerkis*

What happens in schools in which Turkish and Arab youths are already in the majority? Assimilation is in reverse: it is the “Almans” who are adjusting themselves.

I am 16 years old and I live in Berlin-Kreuzberg. I grew up between Görlitzer Park, Warshaw Street und Kottbuss Gate. At my elementary school the percentage of foreigners was past the 70% mark.

I experienced what the words “integration difficulties” really meant: A third grader sitting on the floor, crying and hitting at the teacher who tries to soothe him; a fellow student storming angrily out of the classroom after a warning and can only be brought back with much difficulty. Another who’s taking a nap during German class. And ultimately, a fourth-grader who visits the local mosque regularly and babbles on to me about good and evil angels sitting on my shoulders. It was a crazy time; the educational level was beyond ridiculous. I have learned absolutely nothing in elementary school. Nada y niente.

And still — and, yes, this may sound crazy — I was better friends with the Turks, the Kurds and the Arabs than I was with German students. Because most German students in Kreuzberg are just insanely dumb: They have been brought up anti-authoritarian; achievements and performance were foreign concepts to them, but their mommies were sure that something was going to come from them — something about painting pretty pictures or maybe music. The child could jam away on the drums so well…

When I got older, I went to grammar school, out and away from Kreuzberg. The older I got, the more things changed around us. Those Germans with the last bit of common sense left. Those who remained at the Kreuzberg schools soon only had two options left: Either they were excluded, and ridiculed as “Almans” — or they assimilated. They adjusted themselves. They assimilated so that they could belong to a deeply Islamic-shaped youth culture. There everything was about honor and family, and whoever said anything against it or just generally was of different opinion than the leader of the group got punched in the face. Sure, as far as alcohol and girls went, things weren’t so Islamo-puritan, unless it was about your own sister, so help us allah, because then it was a matter of honor. Shisha was all the latest rage, music came from rappers who were rapping things in broken German about punching people in the face and boxing. This culture reacted allergically to everything German, Western, and against everyone who didn’t immediately shed themselves of it.

I’ve watched how the assimilating Germans started to talk in slang. They took up the mannerisms of their migrant friends, and in order to try and completely evade the slightest accusation of Almandome, they would try to exceed and surpass their migrant friends in things such as aggression and the propensity to use violence.

The fact that culture functions in this way here is known by everyone, whether a student at Waldorf, SPIEGEL online reader, a Green Party member/fan, or just generally a tolerance-loving diversity fan: to accuse a migrant gang of cheating at soccer by Bolzplatz? Better not. To flirt with a girl with darker skin? Rather keep your distance.

Splitting Hairs

In his latest essay, our Israeli correspondent MC wades into the murky cultural waters where shariah advocates and social justice warriors converge.

Splitting Hairs

by MC

The Hebrew ‘shalom’ is translated as ‘peace’, but that is not particularly accurate. It actually describes an ‘inner peace’, which comes with a personal relationship with the Creator, in this case Yahovah. ‘Peace’ is essentially a manmade thing (or not, as the case may be), but shalom comes through keeping the Commandments of Yah.

In this day and age this kind study of is considered to be ‘splitting hairs’, just as the difference between quoting a hadith about Mohammed’s sexual proclivities and accusing him of paedophilia is ‘splitting hairs’, since the one makes the other obvious.

The problem about a sex act with a 9-year-old is not so much the gross physical intrusion as the potential for damage to the child both physical and — especially — emotional. This is true particularly when considering the case of Mohammed, a religious icon whose every act is to be emulated by the faithful.

A 9-year-old is a child, and it thus vulnerable. Because a child is, by definition, not yet physically or emotionally mature, he or she cannot be considered able to give any kind of informed consent to a sex act. Any sex act.

Islam, being a male fantasy-oriented religion, takes no account of consent from either mature or immature women. On the other hand, the Judeo-Christian religions regard the woman as the ‘life-giver’, as the name Adam gave to Eve (Chava) implies. The woman is thus a pivotal player in the commandment to go forth and multiply, and we build our Western culture around the need to support this life-giver and her offspring — or rather we did until Roe vs. Wade.

Thus, because paedophilia is an intrinsic part of Islam, any judgement comes down to a matter of who can get away with offending whom. Muslims become violent when offended and start murdering people, but since Christians are mainly ‘white supremacists’ and need to be taught a lesson anyway… or so it seems to go these days. But just when did emotion and politicking creep into the modern law-making and its associated executive process?

So the recent European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) decision that to call Mohammed a paedophile is ‘hate speech’ is fraught with implications. In itself, the idea behind ‘hate’ speech is to provide a means to demonize free speech. Bur free speech is only really proven to be free when somebody is offended by it. So just how do we define hate speech in a ‘free speech’ context, if the two are so mutually incompatible?

Is it when free speech causes harm, as in falsely shouting FIRE in a crowded cinema?

To tip the scales of justice, the difference between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ must be clearly delineated, and must be able to be applied in all circumstances to all people, both equally, and across the board.

Do Muslims have an existential problem with paedophilia? Does the rest of society therefore have to give way to these Muslim sensitivities? Is there therefore a different law for Muslims — ‘Yes’, ‘Yes’ and ‘Yes’, it would appear.

Judge Jeanine Talks to Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff

Earlier this month Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff appeared on Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show on Fox News. ESW discussed the verdict in the “hate speech” case against her, and how it relates to UN Resolution 16/18 and the Islamic law against slander:

When Muslims accuse someone of slander, they don’t mean what we do when we use the term. This is from Reliance of the Traveller,* Book R. “Holding one’s Tongue”, § 2.0, “Slander (Ghiba),” r2.2:

Slander and talebearing are two of the ugliest and most frequently met with qualities among men, few people being safe from them. I have begun with them because of the widespread need to warn people of them.

[…]

Slander (ghiba) means to mention anything concerning a person that he would dislike…

r2.3:

As for talebearing… it consists of quoting someone’s words to another in a way that worsens relations between them.

As you can see, the factual truth of any given statement is irrelevant; what matters is whether a Muslim would dislike hearing it spoken.

Off With Their Heads!

I first became aware of the Muslim fad for beheading infidels when Daniel Pearl was executed in Pakistan back in 2002. Over the years I saw a few more beheading videos, especially after the practice really began trending during the heyday of the Islamic State in 2014. I hated watching them, but it seemed a sort of duty, to be aware of what Islam is based on what it does. Eventually I realized that I’d had enough, and I quit watching them. I’ve seen what a beheading looks like now, many times over. I’m old, and my limbic system can’t take that much horror anymore.

Videos of beheadings and other gruesome types of execution constitute a form of Islamic porn. Devout Muslims get off on that sort of thing the same way a voyeur gets off on peeking through a lady’s bedroom window.

Muslims aren’t the only ones who like beheadings, of course. People with a taste for sadistic violence — most of them probably psychopaths — are drawn to such videos. I wouldn’t be surprised if jihad porn were the stimulus behind a lot of Western conversions to Islam. Just think — I’ll get to do all that cool stuff, and God approves of it!

The German news report below discusses the most recent Islamic beheading to gain notoriety: the slaughter of two young Scandinavian women in Morocco.

NOTE: The Moroccan government spokesman’s words might be more accurately rephrased: “We frown upon the murder of infidels on Moroccan soil, because it interferes with the tourist industry, which is how we extract money from the infidel. Mujahideen are required travel abroad if they wish to kill infidels.”

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.

Oppression

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff sends her thoughts after the conclusion of her most recent American tour.


Oppression

by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff

Oppression is felt differently in different places and at different times. There are degrees to the level of one’s feeling of oppression. I know what I’m talking about: I’ve experienced it numerous times in my life. Let me explain.

When I lived and worked in Kuwait in the late 1990s, I already felt somewhat caged. I always like telling the story of how in pre-Amazon days I would visit Kuwait’s bookstores and marvel at the censorship imposed by the Kuwaiti (likely religious) authorities. There was little to no variety in the books I could buy, and many of those that made it onto the bookshelves were hopelessly outdated. For a committed bookworm, this was an oppressive feeling.

Oppression in Kuwait manifested itself not only in the lack of knowledge in the form of books, but also in the prohibition of alcohol and pork. Freedom to me means the freedom to live, eat, read, think, and speak as I wish. In Kuwait I was unable to eat, drink or read what I chose. I want to make my own choices, just as I do not choose to eat dog or roaches, but should be free to do so.

So, when I boarded a plane to Dubai or Oman I always breathed a sigh of relief. Mind you, freedom is always relative. Compared to the United States, Dubai is still a repressive society, but the contrast with Kuwait’s situation is staggering: parties, booze, pork, and other “vices”, as long as you as a non-Muslim follow certain rules. If not, and you are caught, you’d better have your passport and a fast airplane at hand or you’ll wind up in jail. Just check your local sob stories in the papers.

Fast-forward a few years to Tripoli, Libya. Seldom have I felt more caged, more jailed than in Tripoli at the beginning of this century. There was no way to spend money or free time, both of which were at hand in some abundance: no shopping centers like in Kuwait or Dubai to spend one’s hard-earned shekels — pardon, dinars; no movie theaters, even if censored; no decent restaurants; no beach clubs. Just a lot of socialism, Islam and sand.

So driving those three hours from Tripoli across the border to Tunisia was a relief: freedom! — to a degree, of course. Not the kind that I was looking for, but at least I was able to breathe freely, buy some beer and enjoy a beach club on the island of Djerba.

And so it was when I finally left the Arab world that I thought I had left Islamic-style oppression behind me. I settled in Vienna, my hometown, hoping to regain the freedom to move about, to eat what I wished, to read as much as I could (thank you, in this case, to the Internet and Amazon), to dress as I wished, to speak my mind, in short, to live my life in freedom. You see, one only realizes what freedom means when it has been taken away. In our circles, this statement is considered a platitude. It’s not really, however. And this is what I felt during my recent travels to the United States.

Living in today’s Europe, I never fully realized just how constricted my freedom has become in recent years. Of course, I KNOW that my freedom is being reduced on a daily basis by the European Union’s useless and annoying data protection regulations, which were tightened to the extreme this year, but I never really felt it as strongly, as overpoweringly, as I did at the end of this year. I actually found myself breathing a deep sigh of relief upon entering the United States, knowing that what I would be telling Americans would be protected by the United States Constitution and its First Amendment. One really does speak a different language if one doesn’t have to self-censor all the time.

And that is what we do in Europe; we just don’t realize it. Even I don’t. But I recognized the stark difference as I viewed my European self from an American perspective. Believe me when I tell you that I am still in shock, even if I am at the forefront of my fight for the restoration of freedom of speech in Europe. But never have I felt this level of despair at the loss of my personal freedom as well as a profound fear of the future for my daughter.

As the year draws to a close what can we do, what can you do?

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.

Geert Wilders: Grant Asia Bibi Asylum in the Netherlands!

December 1, 2018

Parliamentary Questions from Geert Wilders, Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) to the Prime Minister of The Netherlands regarding granting asylum to Asia Bibi

1.   Are you willing to grant asylum in The Netherlands to Asia Bibi, the brave Christian girl from Pakistan who is threatened to be killed by radical Muslims?
2.   If yes, can you let your positive decision be known to her, her representatives and the Pakistani government?
3.   If no, why not, and isn’t it a bloody shame that while you allowed hundreds of thousands non-western immigrants and asylum seekers — many of whom Muslim — into the Netherlands and have often granted them asylum (among which are many fortune seekers, terrorists and Salafists), there is no room for a brave Christian girl who did nothing wrong, but fears death for so-called blasphemy against the fake prophet Mumammad?
4.   Shouldn’t you send all those fortune seekers — which you should not have allowed into our country — out of country as soon as possible and grant a true refugee such as Asia Bibi asylum in The Netherlands?
5.   Can you answer these question before Tuesday December 6, 11 am?
 

Egypt: Proposed Law to Muzzle Muslim Scholars and Thinkers

Ashraf Ramelah sends this report on a bill to further restrict criticism of Islam in Egypt. It appears to be similar to the Austrian law that was recently reaffirmed by the European Court of Human Rights in the “hate speech” case against Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff.

Egypt: Proposed law to muzzle Muslim scholars and thinkers

by Ashraf Ramelah

Egyptian “democracy” is an endless comedy if you’re not suffering at the hands of it. Last month Amr Hamroush, a graduate of Al-Azhar Institute and a member of the Egyptian Parliament as well as secretary of the Committee of Religious Affairs and Endowments introduced a resolution to criminalize the act of “insulting historic figures.” Hamroush’s resolution is written in vague terms and lacks definition for “historic figures and symbols.”

Using the term “mockers” for those who criticize and “insult,” the bill’s author says the issue will not be up for public debate. Such would have a negative and dangerous effect on Egyptians, he adds. The parliamentary bill was under review for the entire month of October and is now up for discussion in the fall session.

Historically, Egypt’s government addressed restrictions on speech just two other times. The more recent was an amendment to the constitution in 1977 called “The Law of Defective Values.” With this, Sadat muzzled opposition voices to his visit to Israel and the subsequent signing of the Camp David peace treaty. Many years earlier when King Farouk came under criticism by Egyptians, he amended the 1923 constitution by adding “The Law of Perfection of the Royal Identity” and included the statement, “The king is the supreme head of the state and above criticism.”

Today’s speech bill is unlike the previous two diktats. It does not aim to restrict outcry against the Egyptian president, political leaders or a specific political issue. Egyptians already know not to cross this line. Neither will it limit expression against Egypt’s ancient heroes, the gods or the glorious past. Certainly, the bill will not guard against disparagement of Christian symbols — Christian leaders, biblical figures or the bible. None of this disturbs the state.

Instead, the proposed bill aims to end public discourse about the religion of Islam — its doctrine, political ideology, scholarship and history. In recent years, various Muslim thinkers focused on the parallel texts of the Quran and brought thought-provoking facts to light challenging official narratives. Ostensibly, scholars set out to produce full proof and secure within the Arab-speaking world (in particular in Egypt) the argument that ISIS terrorism is not based on the fundamental precepts of Islam, the “religion of peace.” However, instead, scholars came to the unwelcome consensus that the origin and source of terrorism is indeed the core doctrine of the religion of Islam — refuting categorically that Islam is a religion of peace.

Their conclusions prompted Al-Sisi to initiate his renowned “renewal of Islamic discourse,” an effort with Al-Azhar Institute to reform interpretation of Islamic doctrine in order to cleanse the hate and violence. Al-Sisi has been so far unsuccessful. While free thinkers and scholars were able to prove their conclusions, Al-Azhar religious scholars were unable to prove the opposite — that Islamic doctrine leads to peaceful co-existence. Furthermore, as a result of their research, many Muslim thinkers determined that Egypt should be a secular state with no state religion. All of this has been a thorn in the side of the Al-Sisi government and its connection to the religious deep state.

Over the past decade, Islam Al-Beheiri, Sayed Al-Qimni, Nawal Al-Saadawi, Nasr Hamed Abu Zeid and other thinkers such as Yossef Zydan were all convicted for the offense of analyzing the life and conduct of Islamic religious icons and figures. Each of them illustrated something other than the official narrative of Al-Azhar Sunni Institute. Every scholar, researcher and broadcaster was shut down, and some were jailed.

Mommy, I Want to Wear a Niqab

The video below serves as an appropriate follow-up to the report on German high school girls who took part in an “experiment” where they wore the Islamic veil in public.

As I understand it, the woman in this video is a German who lives in Egypt. Whether she is a convert to Islam or has simply gone native for the sake of expedience is not clear. However, she is clearly preparing her daughter for her future life under sharia.
