I Do Not Like That Ham-I-Am

Our German translator JLH has a few things to say about the latest “News of the Weird” story from South Africa.

One of the many things you can learn by reading the news at Gates of Vienna

by JLH

Let’s see if I understand this. Burger King is removing the syllable “ham” from “hamburger” in South Africa so as not to offend anyone. The best statistic I can uncover is that Islam accounts for 1.5% of the ca. 56 million South Africans. The largest single religious group is Protestant Christianity. In second place are those who profess no religion. It makes you wonder whom Burger King consulted (or was directed by). Certainly not the local Jewish lobby. When is the last time you ever heard the owner of a Jewish deli complain to the ADL about the BBQ bar and grill next door advertising spareribs?

This is a pioneering alteration to the language. The word for a type of sausage originally named after its city of origin is reduced to a severed trunk (-burg) that means “fort.” In US English, at any rate, calling somewhere a “burg” is not particularly flattering. I know because I come from a state with a lot of burgs. If I were a citizen of one of the largest cities in Germany — an international port, a center of trade, and an original member of the Hanseatic League — I would not like to be told that I was living in -burg.

This presents a whole new vista of linguistic change, calling up fond memories of the Hitlerian desire to expunge foreign words and phrases from the German language.

Where else in English, for instance, can we find this insidious infidel word “ham”? Perhaps in the Broadway musical about one of the Founding Fathers — you know, Alexander -ilton. Or in the name of a cute little rodent — the -ster — that is so fond of treadmills. Or, if you don’t want to call a small town a burg, you could call it a -let. And if you damage that place down in the back of your leg, you could say that you hurt your -string. This could lead to some confusion, so it may be better to take the high road and say that you pulled one of the tendons that laterally and medially border the depression in the popliteal fossa. That’s a little clumsy, but there are no infidel words in it. (Unless some really picky Muslim scholar objects to the use of the language of the Roman Church.)

And what if we can’t just remove the offensive syllable? What if that’s all there is? Like “Don’t ham it up.” We just have to substitute, and tell show-offs “Don’t steak it up!” “Don’t be such a steak!”

Just to be safe, we should also do away with the term we use for that crispy stuff we often eat in the morning. The morning special might be called “two eggs any style, with choice of ground infidel meat or infidel crispy stuff.” Alternatively “Canadian infidel crispy stuff and eggs.”

The Mask Comes Off in Deggendorf

The following article from Politically Incorrect accompanied the video of the “Jews are possessed” incident in Bavaria that I posted earlier.

BPE is a reference to Bürgerbewegung Pax Europa.

Deggendorf: Muslim at BPE says “Jews are not human”

by Michael Stürzenberger

Even Islam critics and AfD supporters from Deggendorf were surprised by what happened recently at the Information Rally on Political Islam from the Citizens’ Movement Pax Europa (BPE) in Lower Bavaria. We were told that although there were the usual incidents of violence and harassment with the local “refugee” facility, the Muslims of the DITIB mosque behaved inconspicuously for the most part.

Obviously that’s the case until they are confronted with fundamental criticism of their religion. Then the masks fall and often a rather ugly face emerges. That is the result of indoctrination by a dangerous totalitarian ideology that makes up a large part of this religion — Political Islam.

At the beginning of the rally, I also thought that it was going to be an unspectacular day. There were only local citizens, many sat in the cafes nearby and listened calmly to our information.

But then more and more Muslims showed up. It became loud. Outrage began to spread with outbursts of anger and rage. There were insults. A Muslim woman asked a policeman, in all seriousness, why such an event was allowed to take place which makes Islam “look bad”. The question itself reveals the assumption that Islam is the only true religion and should never be criticised. Which is, after all, also the reality in Islamic countries.

The Muslim at our rally who said with total conviction “Jews are not people” and “Jews are possessed” called our comrade-in-arms Chris, who also wears a star of David around his neck next to a cross, the “devil”. Before that he had insulted me as “You spastic” and “You f****r” and told me I should “shut the f*** up” and said “shut your pothole” to me.

For everyone familiar with Islam, it was foreseeable that the hatred for Jews in Germany would become ever greater with the increase in the number of Muslims from fundamental Islamic countries to our country. This stems directly from the Koran, which denies Jews are human.

Constantin Schreiber has shown in his book Children of the Koran that in many Islamic countries, including Turkey, this indoctrination is spread in schools and therefore firmly anchored in the minds of Muslims. In its hostility towards Jews, the Koran far surpasses Adolf Hitler’s book of hatred and hate Mein Kampf (“My Struggle”).

The infernal and completely irrational fervour with which Muslims from the Gaza Strip and the so-called West Bank, actually called Judea and Samaria, rage against Israel can only be explained by the hatred that is sown against Jews in the Koran. If their god Allah curses Jews, how can they ever accept a Jewish state in an area which they presume to be their own?

Jews Are Possessed!

The following video shows an exchange between a Muslim visitor and people protesting against sharia at one of Michael Stürzenberger’s events. The culture-enricher identifies one of the protesters as a Jew (I can’t tell if she really is one), and says she is possessed by the Devil.

Salafist Madrassas in the Netherlands

Dutch authorities, both Islamic and secular, are shocked — SHOCKED, I tell you! — to learn that violent extremism is being taught in Salafist mosque schools in the Netherlands.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from the Dutch public broadcasting service NOS:

Great concern in the Tweede Kamer [Parliament] After investigation into Salafist mosque schools

Children in Salafist mosque schools learn that people with another religious belief or lifestyle deserve the death penalty. They also learn to turn away from Dutch society and the principles of equality and freedom.

In various mosque schools, instructors teach that Muslim youths must leave this infidel land and settle in an Islamic land. That is the conclusion of an investigation by Nieuwsuur and NRC Handelsblad regarding Salafist institutions that fall outside of regular education.

Shocked

Both in political circles and within the Islamic community there is a shocked response. Gert-Jan Segers of Christian Union and VVD leader Klaas Dijkhoff want to have the law amended so that after information has been received, the education inspectorate can also intervene in informal education, whereas it can now only inspect regular schools.

The Moroccan-Dutch Society also reacted in shock. A sheikh, an imam and an Islamic teacher, active in traditional Moroccan mosques, call the Salafist lessons “horrible”.

Nieuwsuur and NRC conducted an investigation into dozens of education centers, which are Salafist or influenced by Salafism, and studied the teaching material for different age groups. Teachers throughout the country glorify a system where sharia punishment — the Islamic law — applies.

Death by sword

From lessons and from the textbooks, children learn which groups and sorts of people are “enemies” or “unbelievers”, and prescribes the death penalty that adulterers, homosexuals, apostates, and so-called “wizards”, among others, deserve. Children get fill-in exercises and multiple choice questions. They must, for example, choose the correct punishment: (a) lashing, (b) stoning, (c) death by sword.

Within informal Islamic education, Salafism, a fundamental movement within Islam is becoming increasingly influential. Nieuwsuur and NRC identified at least 50 educational establishments that are Salafist or becoming strongly influenced by it. In those locations more than a 1,000 children take Islamic lessons on evenings or weekends.

An Islamic Party for Sweden

It appears that Sweden, like Belgium will soon have its very own Islamic political party.

Many thanks to LN for translating this article from Fria Tider:

Pro-Islamic party wants to recruit controversial Muslims

September 12, 2019

The newly-formed Nyans Party, which wants to promote Muslim interests in Sweden, will invest both locally and in the Riksdag [parliament] ahead of the next elections in 2022.

Its founder Mikail Yüksel believes the party will join the council in Växjö, he says in Lokaltidningen. The municipality is already 25% immigrant.

It was in August that the Nyans Party, “the party for the country’s suburbs”, was launched via an article in the Aftonbladet Debate.

Behind the party stands the former Center Party politician Mikail Yüksel, who was excluded from the party last year due to contacts with the Turkish Gray Wolves, which has been called “a security threat to Sweden” and is designated as an Islamist group, where Islam is seen as the “cure” of humanity.

Among other things, the party wants to make Islamophobia a crime classification all its own in Sweden, and ensure that Muslims are enrolled in the Constitution as a special group like Jews and Saamis [Lapps] with minority status.

In a new interview with Lokaltidningen in Växjö, Yüksel explains that the party aims, among other things, to get onto the Växjö City Council. There people already work for the party, and as many as 25% of the municipality’s residents are immigrants. Entering would require only 1,200 votes.

Local chapters will also be started in Gothenburg, Malmö, Stockholm and Örebro. But the main goal is to get into parliament in 2022.

However, Mikail Yüksel does not want to be a party leader himself. In that regard, he would like to see the former housing minister and MP politician Mehmet Kaplan, who in 2016 had to resign after it emerged that he had been at a dinner with the Gray Wolves.

“Mehmet Kaplan is as cut/scissors and cut/knife for the assignment as party leader for Party Nyans. He has experience working in government and parliament,” says Mikail Yüksel to Lokaltidningen.

Yüksel also wants to “attract” another controversial Muslim, Yasri Khan. Khan also resigned from the Environment Party in 2016 after refusing to shake hands with a TV4 reporter because she was a woman.

Some Planes Did Something

I borrowed the title of this post from Steven Hayward’s 9-11 piece at Power Line. See also “Ilhan Omar’s 9/11”.

Dymphna and I have been posting these 9-11 anniversary essays once a year, beginning in 2005, so this makes the fifteenth. I’m on my own now, and I must admit to a certain discouragement: in the eighteen years since the Twin Towers fell, our ability to identify and deal with the danger of Islamization has markedly deteriorated.

Readers who are old enough to recall the fall of 2001 may remember the robust public discussions about Islam that took place during the months after September 11, even in the MSM. Even on NPR! I remember listening to the op-eds during “All Things Considered” in the car on my way home from work. Yes, the general conclusion — led by the pronouncements of President George W. “Religion of Peace” Bush — was that the perpetrators of 9-11 were “extremists” who had “hijacked a great religion”. But Islam was mentioned, and it was even possible to publicly dissent from the “extremist-vs.-moderate” party line without being hounded from one’s job and driven into hiding.

Not any more.

Over the intervening years, the patient infiltration and indoctrination by the Muslim Brotherhood has borne fruit. The word “Islam” is rarely used in any public commemorations of 9-11. In fact, the public remembrances themselves are becoming more and more frowned upon and stigmatized as “racist”, “white supremacist”, etc., etc.

In the Long War, Ilhan Omar is winning, and we traditional Americans are losing.

Mark Steyn says it much better than I ever could in “The Language of Losing”. Some excerpts:

The eighteenth anniversary of 9/11 was marked by the Administration inviting the Taliban to Camp David, and by the resignation and/or firing of John Bolton as National Security Advisor — which two events may not be unconnected. Because really, when the Taliban are running around Camp David, who needs national security?

[…]

We run around fighting for worthless bits of barren sod like Helmand province in Afghanistan, while surrendering day by day some of the most valuable real estate on the planet, such as France and Sweden.

[…]

In any war, you have to be able to prioritize: You can’t win everything, so where would you rather win? Raqqa or Rotterdam? Kandahar or Cannes? Yet, whenever some guy goes Allahu Akbar on the streets of a western city, the telly pundits generally fall into one of two groups: The left say it’s no big deal, and the right say this is why we need more boots on the ground in Syria or Afghanistan. Yesterday President Trump said he was committed to ensuring that terrorists “never again have a safe haven to launch attacks against our country”.

By that he means “safe havens” in Afghanistan. But the reason the west’s enemies are able to pile up a continuous corpse count in Paris, Nice, Berlin, Brussels, London, Manchester, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Orlando, San Bernadino, Ottawa, Sydney, Barcelona, [Your Town Here] is because they have “safe havens” in France, Germany, Britain, Scandinavia, North America, etc. Which “safe havens” are likely to prove more consequential for the developed world in the years ahead?

To Shake or Not to Shake?

Jimmie Åkesson is the leader of the Sweden Democrats (Sverigedemokraterna), the anti-immigration party that is shunned and cordoned off by all the decent, progressive parties — which means every other political party in Sweden (with the exception of Alternativ för Sverige).

In the following interview, Mr. Åkesson discusses the decision by Foreign Minister Margot Wallström not to shake hands with the representative of the Iranian regime during his recent visit to Sweden.

The Ummah Lays Claim to Ottawa

A reader in Ottawa sends this report on the Islamization of his local park. The upraised index finger mentioned in his account is often referred to as the “ISIS salute”, but that is a misnomer: it is widely used by devout Sunni Muslims (and not just followers of the Islamic State) to represent tawhid, or the oneness of Allah. Christians are idolaters against tawhid due to their doctrine of the Trinity. Hindus, of course, are even worse, with their full pantheon of gods that are not Allah.

The Minto incident:

Two days ago, around 3:30 in the afternoon, so on 26 August 2019, in Minto Park, which is in center town Ottawa, where I was sitting minding my own business, there were two black guys on the bench opposite me.

As I was getting up to leave, one of them flashed the upraised index finger at me, the sign of Muslim supremacy. No mistake. It was very clear, and he was looking right at me and holding his arm straight out. The disquieting Muslim presence in the city is becoming increasingly obvious.

The sound on the ground, a while back, was that “ they” were planning to take over the nearby Business Inn, an apartment hotel for business travelers, also on Elgin, a big place, formerly an apartment building, which is next to the park, for Syrian “refugees”. This has not happened. Should it take place, I fear it would be the end of our lovely quiet, clean and safe Golden Triangle…

Islam: Men Versus Women

Islam: Men Versus Women

by SF

It’s easy to see why men like Islam: they are favored in every way. They can have arranged marriages, and up to four wives. If they tire of one of their wives, they can divorce her on the spot and get a new model. They can rape and beat their wives whenever they want. The women and children they capture in jihad become their sex slaves forever. And if they die in the course of jihad, they are whisked to the Muslim sexual paradise and receive 72 eternally virgin busty angels.

In contrast, it does not seem very attractive to be a Muslim woman. She is always owned by a man; first her father, and then her husband. Her father arranges her marriage, and can kill her if she dishonors him. She is subject to genital mutilation (which the Muslims call female circumcision). She cannot go out in public unless heavily covered, and is limited in all her interactions with men. She cannot divorce without consent of her husband. She is limited to one husband at a time, and can never marry a non-Muslim. Her testimony in court is limited, as well as her right to inheritance. If she is raped and reports it, but cannot find four Muslim male witnesses to testify in her favor, then she herself is found guilty of fornication and/or adultery, and is whipped or stoned to death!

Moreover, Muhammad, the incarnation of allah on earth, said that women have half the intelligence of a man, and that most Muslim women will end up in Muslim hell (where they can never bother their husbands, who are in Muslim paradise).

So you might wonder how any woman can be proud to be a Muslim — and why, in the supposedly free and enlightened West, Democrats, feminists, and lesbians defend Islam so strongly?

The analysis that follows is not politically correct: There is clearly such a thing as instinctual human nature. Humans are designed to be tribal; to be fiercely loyal to one’s own tribe, and to fiercely hate the enemy’s tribe. Women want to have sex with men, and to be the mothers of children. Women come to love the father of their children (and vice versa). Men won’t abuse women they are fond of (at least too badly), and women will generally put up with male abuse, as long as it is not too bad.

If all this is true, then it would seem that Islam as practiced is not as bad for women as it could be in theory.

Killing Someone Who Deserves to Die

The following essay by Michael Copeland was originally posted at LibertyGB.

Killing Someone Who Deserves to Die

by Michael Copeland

[The scene, pixellated, outside the supermarket at Prien, Bavaria, Germany (Daily Mail)]

[Fatima S., murdered outside the supermarket]

[See The Daily Mail for the photos]

Another day, another stabbing: Europe today.

The Afghan mother Fatima S. was just leaving the supermarket in Prien, Germany, with her children in April this year. Another Afghan, who had been waiting on a bench opposite, rose up and attacked her, shouting that she had to die for leaving Islam. He stabbed her in the head and then slit her throat as her cries were heard for hundreds of feet around. A horrified eye-witness said:

“It was bad. A brave citizen tried to intervene and save the woman, everything was full of blood. It was inconceivably terrible.”

Brave shoppers overpowered him. Police were called, and he was detained.

Fatima S. had left Islam. As a result she had to be killed. This is commanded in Sharia, the body of rules which define Islam. Leaving Islam is “the ugliest form of unbelief (kufr) and the worst” (Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, o8). All four of the main schools of Islamic jurisprudence agree that leaving Islam — apostasy — brings death.

In Sharia, “since it is killing someone who deserves to die”, there is no penalty for killing an apostate (Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, o8.4). Anyone may freely commit such a murder: it is part of Islam’s authorised vigilante killing system. Every brother doubles up as executioner. The victim had left Islam while in Afghanistan. She fled that country in 2011 because of the murder that awaited her there, and obtained asylum in Germany. Her killer was known to her, and had sought her out, arriving in Germany in 2013.

Unfortunately, we Europeans are not acquainted with these rules: the attacker was initially detained in a psychiatric hospital. Authorities are not yet familiar with Sharia, but we all need to give it some attention. This is because Islam’s mission is to impose Sharia on all the world, in a Global Caliphate, by force if needed. Osama bin Laden explained, but no-one took any notice:

Eid al-Adha: When Muslim Streets Run Red With (Animal) Blood

Eid al-Adha: When Muslim streets run red with (animal) blood

by SF

The Muslim calendar year is strictly lunar, and consists of twelve lunar months, making a year of 354 or 355 days. That is because Muhammad wanted to show that Islam is “holier” and “truer” than both Judaism and Christianity. Since Jews have a mixed solar/lunar calendar, and Christians a purely solar one, Muhammad chose one that neither of the others use. (Just as he chose Friday as the Muslim holy day rather than Jewish Saturday or Christian Sunday.) But using a purely lunar calendar removes from it any linkage to the seasons. As a result, for every solar year, the Muslim calendar is short by eleven days, and so, year by year, Muslim holidays shift a bit through the different seasons.

Islam itself is a form of Judaism. Jewish Rabbis living in Arabia taught Judaism to Muhammad. Then he killed them and created an arabized version of Judaism. Eid al-Adha (the Feast of the Sacrifice) was originally called Eid al-Qurban. But when the Muslims realized that “Korban” was the unique Hebrew word used by Jews for sacrifice, they changed the name. “Hajj” itself is the Arabic pronunciation of the unique Hebrew word designating a pilgrimage festival. The Hajj celebrates Abraham’s sacrifice of Ishmael at Mecca.

The Koran tells us that the Jews and Christians are liars who falsified their scriptures. According to “Islamic truth”, Abraham was a Muslim, and not a Jew. Allah ordered him to sacrifice his favorite son Ishmael (not Isaac). This was to be done at Mecca, and not Jerusalem. But, similar to the Jewish story, at the last moment allah tells Abraham not to sacrifice his son, and to substitute an animal in his place.

Each year this event is commemorated throughout the Muslim world (in the USA this year it was on August 10 and 11). In Muslim countries, halal animals (kosher for Muslims) are slaughtered. (Australia profits by shipping tens of thousands of live sheep to Muslim countries, while liberal New Zealand recently stopped this practice.) Muslims cannot eat pigs, but can eat camels, cows, and sheep. In Muslim countries, Eid is celebrated by slaughtering and butchering these animals in public. Any good Muslim man can do the slaughtering. The mandatory method of slaughter is to cut the animal’s throat with a knife. It often happens that this slaughter is botched, with the result that the bleeding animal runs screaming in pain through the streets of the town.

DHS Goes Further Down the CVE Rabbit Hole

The article below was originally published by the Sharia TipSheet in a slightly different form.

DHS Goes Further Down the CVE Rabbit Hole

by The Sharia TipSheet
August 13, 2019

The Department of Homeland Security is poised to spend $35 million on a new Center of Excellence in Terrorism Prevention and Counterterrorism Research. Universities will apply for grants to develop “multidisciplinary, customer-driven solutions while training the next generation of homeland security experts,” according to the press release announcing the Center. “Once awarded, this COE will leverage emerging technologies and analytic techniques to provide innovative solutions for preventing and countering terrorism,” the press release went on to say. The Center “will support academic-led innovation that supports DHS in staying a step ahead of emerging terrorist tactics.”

What does all this mean, exactly?

This publication asked DHS whether the new Center will focus on radical Islam and, if so, through what specific projects. A DHS press officer indicated he would put the question to a staff member working on the Center, but initially just provided another grant document instead.

This response being totally inadequate and not what was promised, the Sharia TipSheet contacted the press officer again:

The document you reference only mentions Islamist terrorism once and does not mention white supremacism or eco-terrorism at all.

How can anything useful be developed concerning “integrat(ing) technologies and concepts into DHS operations to avoid, prevent, or stop a threatened or actual act of terrorism” if no specific group is being examined?

Similarly, how can anything useful be developed concerning “break(ing) the cycle of recruitment, radicalization, and violence” if no specific group is being examined? Wouldn’t recruitment, for example, differ from group to group?

Perhaps it is envisioned that specific groups will be the subject of the grants even though they’re not mentioned in the grant announcement. If that is the case, please advise as to what percentage of the Center’s activity is expected to be about:

  • Abortion extremism
  • Islamist extremism
  • animal rights extremism
  • environmental extremism
  • sovereign citizen extremism
  • anarchist extremism
  • Puerto Rican extremism
  • militia extremism
  • white supremacist extremism
  • black separatist extremism
  • bombing matters
  • other (please identify)

Finally, the document is clearly written from a Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) point of view. Early in the Trump administration, it was reported that DHS was moving away from CVE in several ways. What happened to the initiatives listed below, and why doesn’t the document you referenced reflect them?

Niqab-Wearers Are Exempt From the Niqab Ban

The Dutch government recently enacted a law banning the niqab in certain public situations. However, in order to avoid discriminating against any particular religion, the law targets people wearing “full-face coverings”, as is usually the case with such laws.

No one among us deplorable “Islamophobes” is surprised to learn that the Dutch police only arrest people who wear face coverings that are not the niqab.

The two videos below show scenes from a demonstration against the “niqab ban”, and follow the actions of a man named René (who happens to be a fan of Tommy Robinson). René is in favor of the new law, but wants to see it applied equally to all face coverings. He wears a balaclava to the demonstration to make a point: he is arrested, while none of the women wearing niqabs are.

You’ll notice that besides the relatively small number of (presumably Muslim) wearers of the niqab, the demonstrators seem to be mostly white middle-class women. Useful idiots, in other words.

Many thanks to C for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.
