Corona Hijab

When I posted about the coronavirus scam last night, I referred to the now-ubiquitous medical face mask as a Corona Hijab. I’d like to elaborate on that concept just a little bit this afternoon.

When a Muslim woman wears hijab, it serves two functions. First of all, it covers up a female’s sexually attractive characteristics, which keeps the wearer from arousing the lust of men with whom she is not permitted to copulate. When a man’s lust is aroused, he is not responsible for his actions. The woman (or girl) is responsible for the consequences if she allows herself to become “uncovered meat”.

The second function of the veil is to signal a woman’s submission. By wearing it she shows her obedience to Allah, who commanded that women be covered. Since Allah also deemed that a woman must obey her father or her husband, the hijab is also a signal that she has submitted to one or both of them.

Similarly, the public wearing of a medical face mask is a sign of submission. Science has deemed that face masks must be worn to prevent the djinn the COVID-19 virus from invading one’s body. By wearing it, a dutiful citizen signals his submission to Science.

Since Science has also delegated authority to divers worldly powers — national and local governments, the CDC, the WHO, state health departments, etc. — the mask-wearer is also publicly declaring his submission to state authority.

Just as Allah’s commands may not be altered or overruled, so the commands of Science must not be questioned. Science has determined that the mask is necessary; therefore it must be worn, and no ordinary mortal may presume to argue with that decree.

Now, I’ve read a lot of data about face masks, both pro and con. On balance, it seems they are largely pointless. As I understand it, the virus particles are so small that they pass through the filter of even an N95 mask, which provides less than 10% protection against the ChiCom flu.

On the other hand, they prevent droplets of saliva or sputum from escaping when the wearer coughs, sneezes, talks, or sings, which means that anyone who is already infected is less likely to spread the disease via his mouth or nostrils. So they’re not entirely useless.

We’re not allowed to have such discussions in public, however, for fear of arousing the wrath of Science, as explained by His prophets, such as Anthony Fauci (pbuh) and Neil Ferguson (no pbuh for him, however, since he has recently sinned).

A faithful believer in Science does not question the face mask; he simply wears it, thereby displaying his submission to Science. When an obedient citizen ventures out onto the street, he makes sure to wear his mask. That tells the muttawa the police that he is a compliant servant of Science, so that they leave him unmolested.

Islam is Incompatible With Democracy

The following essay by Michael Copeland was originally published at LibertyGB, and has been updated by the author since then.

Islam is Incompatible With Democracy

by Michael Copeland

Sharia law, the European Court ruled,

“is incompatible with the fundamental principles of democracy”.

What is Sharia law? It is the body of rules which together define Islam. Fouad Belkacem, “Abu Imran” of Sharia4Belgium, helpfully explains:

“Sharia is Islam, to be clear: there is no difference between Islam and Sharia.”

Pause for a moment to take in the weighty import of these two statements. It is a serious one: Islam is incompatible with democracy. “Incompatible”, as we know, means “does not go together, will not mix, is at variance with”, and so on, as fox is to henhouse. The well-informed observant Muslim Anjem Choudary makes it clear:

“Democracy, liberalism, freedom, and so on need to be destroyed. … So be part of the project … of calling for the Sharia.”

What have Western leaders been doing giving room to a system that will not mix with Western freedoms, is at variance with domestic law and seeks to destroy it? It is a dire failure by them to uphold the constitution — our rules for how we are governed.

We in the West have grown accustomed to relying on the fundamental principles of democracy. Many of us who have never really thought it through erroneously assume that these are cast in concrete, and there is no need to be concerned about them or for them. This assumption is dangerously wrong. Democracy’s fundamental principles are not made of rock. Fought over, gathered together, discussed and agreed, they are written on paper in laws, and are expressed by being upheld. A wise lady wrote, “Love does not sit there like a stone. It has to be made anew, like bread.” Likewise, fundamental principles do not sit there like stones: they have to be upheld and defended.

Now a strange malaise has afflicted Western administrations. Curious to observe, some laws are not being upheld. In the UK the rights of peaceful assembly and freedom of expression were not upheld in Walthamstow in 2012 when the English Defence League’s demonstration, all properly arranged with the authorities beforehand, was left unprotected by the police who were present. The demonstrators’ rights were overridden. Further, and far more culpably, no action was taken against violent law-breakers — Muslims and Antifa — who threw missiles and prevented any speeches from being made.

Democracy died on September 1st”,

Paul Weston perceptively and prophetically declared to the demonstrators. Watching it die were those paid to keep it in good order. They have failed. These are failures of government. Paul Weston afterwards delivered the epitaph:

Stockholm Syndrome? Or a Sincere Conversion to Islam?

A young Italian aid worker named Silvia Romano was recently released by the Islamic terrorist group Al Shabaab after being held hostage for the past year and a half. Al Shabaab was paid an undisclosed amount of ransom in exchange for the girl’s freedom, and has announced that it will use the money to finance jihad.

Ms. Romano converted to Islam during her captivity. Upon her return to Italy, she told her debriefers that her conversion was sincere and voluntary. It’s still to early to assess the likelihood that what she says is true, especially since she could well be suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, and may be unable to evaluate her own sincerity with any reliability.

She was almost certainly raped by her captors as a part of her ordeal. The level of psychological trauma she has endured is difficult to imagine.

The following news report shows Ms. Romano’s return to Italy. Many thanks to FouseSquawk for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Below is an article from Il Giornale (also translated by FouseSquawk) about the conversion of Silvia Romano:

Islamic expert on the conversion of Silvia Romano: “She could have asked for the Koran to better understand her kidnappers.”

Upon her return, the Milanese aid worker confirmed that her conversion was by choice. The Islam expert Paolo Branca tried to explain the passages of the story. “It is evident that had the kidnappers been of another religion or atheists, it would have been less probable that there would have been a request for of a copy of the Koran, not to mention followed by a conversion.”

by Giovanna Pavesi
May 11, 2020

She arrived at 2:10 pm on a Sunday afternoon in May at Ciampino [Rome airport] after 18 months in captivity divided between Kenya and Somalia. Silvia Romano, the Milanese aid worker kidnapped in the village of Ghakama, 80 kilometers from Malindi, on November 20, 2018, and freed two days ago near Mogadishu, was able to embrace her family again.

The first image of her descending the steps of the flight that brought her home was one of a girl tightly dressed in a long, green, traditional Somali dress and a veil on her head, which was never removed.

For the psychologists in the secret services, who first listened to her story in Somalia, Silvia Romano reportedly told them that she had converted to Islam. Without, however, any duress on the part of her kidnappers. The young aid worker, in fact, was interviewed by the public prosecutor’s office of Rome, Sergio Colaiocco, and by anti-terrorist offices, who, in these months, have followed her case, and who have reportedly confirmed her choice.

“It’s true; I converted,” the 25-year-old reportedly explained during her long interview yesterday afternoon. She reportedly told the Ros [Special Operations Group] Carabinieri that she cried through all the initial months of captivity and had embraced the Islamic religion halfway through her kidnapping without any duress: I asked to be able to read a Koran and I was accommodated.” As reported this morning by Corriere della Sera, the aid worker also reportedly chose to change her name to Aisha. “I read the Koran, and prayed. My reflection was long, and at the end, a decision was made,” the young woman reportedly explained. Paolo Branca, an Islam expert and a teacher of the history of religions at the Catholic University of Milan, was consulted by Il Giornale. He explained how, in cases like this, there is often a trauma at the origin of the detachment from the faith, perhaps, from their own family members, and Branca tried to interpret the signs (visible and hidden) based on what Silvia said in her first hours of freedom.

Professor Branca, the conversion of Silvia is the object of great discussion in these hours. Are cases of this kind frequent in the history of kidnappings?

“In my personal experience, having known both Christians who converted to Islam and Muslims who became Christian, I think I can say, in general, that a step like this is never banal. You don’t change religions like drinking a glass of water. Even in ‘normal’ conditions, there is often a trauma at the origin of the detachment from the faith of their own parents, and it is not a coincidence that many see themselves as being obligated to denigrate the abandoned religion more than to glorify the new one.”

Amanda Lindhout, the Canadian freelance journalist kidnapped in August 2008 by an Islamist cell in Somalia, was set free in 2009 after months of captivity in which she was tortured and raped. She also appeared veiled, and only declared some time afterwards that she converted in order to survive. Up to what point can a hostage be said to be free to choose and totally free of the pressure of her captors, in your opinion?

Italy: Is Coronavirus Paving the Way for Dictatorial Powers?

Ashraf Ramelah, the president of Voice of the Copts, sends a coronaskeptic’s view of the situation in Italy and elsewhere in the West.

Italy: Is Coronavirus paving the way for dictatorial powers?

by Ashraf Ramelah

For years I have focused on the cruel and needless suffering of the Christian Copts of Egypt. Religiously inspired laws and the dictates of a regime governing the Islamic state has always been the enemy of the Egyptian Copts. Long ago a barbaric Islamic army invaded and occupied the Pharaoh’s land, for centuries ruling with severity the native Christians. Islam ruled with barbarity and deception.

Is the rest of the world seeing a modern-day version of this right now? There seems to be rule by deception and the top-down dictates that stem from it — the same formula. The World Health Organization (WHO) along with its agents who head nation states and act as official authority over a “new disease” force us into charts and graphs and experts to lock us down under house arrest, distance us from each other and muzzle our mouths with masks. Like the fierce Islamic warriors who cut out the tongues of the native Copts of the mid-7th century, dissent is silenced. Our current warlords are worldwide authorities riding a pandemic high, most likely one they created.

Just like our unfortunate friends across the world in Egypt our sacrifice seems not so much for the health and welfare of mankind as it is to succumb to the control of a certain ruling class. Bio-weapon or not, manmade or natural, the Covid-19 and its vultures have swept down and made the best of very controversial data for a power grab. Like the useful Shariah, the “facts” are given and the solution is provided. Let us be grateful.

By imposing harsh measures that contradict scientific experts and lead to the deterioration of health and limit our God-given rights and freedoms, the Western warlords have gotten us to beg for our punishment so the “curve can be flattened.” We enter their program and wait, watch and listen for the next dreaded word spoken from a podium.

But their death charts are already debunked. Who cares? Just go along. Get through it. But, alas, we won’t ever get done with it. The joke is on us. The good people of the United States know this already from the 9-11 event and its aftermath, receiving the Patriot Act and universal surveillance. Now we are all Copts of Egypt.

Fear and political gain

Only one official source of information exists, which is scripted and distributed over the airwaves via mainstream media just like Egypt’s age-old state-owned broadcasts. It is alarmist and creates fear and panic. This leads to loss of common sense in the citizenry and contributes to irrational beliefs. At the same time there are many highly educated scientists and doctors disagreeing with the official assessment and solutions. We listen but are not able to adopt their sensible course of actions — it’s too late. The forces of the one worldwide alliance own all the science worthy of conveying, and humanity has already paid dearly for it. We now have all we need to know. We are guilty. We are killing our neighbors and even our families.

Christians Must Die!

The following video is a representative slice (so to speak) of Modern Multicultural Europe — a “Danish” imam, speaking in Arabic, subtitled in French, and then translated into English for additional subtitling.

The imam is calling on Muslims to unite so that they can fight jihad in the way of Allah and conquer Europe for Islam.

Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

On a similar note, here’s a brief news item (also translated by MissPiggy) from the local Austrian news outlet meinbezirk.at reporting on the graffito pictured at the top of this post:

Austria, LILIENFELD COUNTY. This graffito has rightly caused a lot of excitement. The lettering “Christians must die” (“Christen müssen sterben”) can be seen at the Traisen-Markt train stop. Above it, in the same style, the words “Allah Akkbar”. The removal of the graffiti has already been initiated and will cost about €500.

The Muslim Brotherhood Penetrates the Swedish Defense Forces

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from the Ledarsidona blog:

Muslim Brotherhood established in Swedish total defense

May 2, 2020

In the shadow of the Corona crisis, the Muslim Brotherhood network of organizations has begun to establish cooperation with the defense forces’ civil society organizations. A consortium of ABF (Worker Education Association) and the Swedish Church, which again makes it clear the high level of the Brotherhood’s organization as well as communication skills. A capacity that has been built up over a long time.

Defense trainers are a nationwide voluntary defense organization, and their activity ranges from individual security to defense of the community. Defense trainers are responsible for recruiting, training, and writing up voluntary agreements for both defense forces and crisis readiness.

  • Specialists such as caregivers, scouts, CBRN soldiers (Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear), who handle hazardous substances, field cooks and information officers for the Home Guard.
  • Agreements for crisis readiness in order to increase stamina in case of crisis in, for example, communication, health protection, hazardous substances, or nuclear accidents.

Defense trainers are responsible for comprehensive activity within both Sweden’s defense and crisis readiness.

Together with the municipality of Huddinge, defense trainers arrange free digital training in crisis readiness for security. Training consists of three 15-minute films, and there are texts in Arabic, Kurdish, and Turkish as well as in Swedish sign language. The training is offered in cooperation with ABF Huddinge and the Swedish Church in Huddinge, as well as the Ibn Rushd Study Association.

The Ibn Rushd Study Association is one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s network organizations in Sweden. Through personal unions and activity, like for example, the now-defunct Muslim Family Days, there is a direct connection with the Islamic network. Mainly through the connections among Ibn Rushd, Sweden’s Young Muslims, and FIFS, (United Islamic Associations in Sweden), which constitute the links to, among others, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Egyptian organization as well as the Brotherhood’s ideological leader, Yussef al Qaradawi.

It is not only in Johan Westerholm’s “Islamism in Sweden” (Greycat 2020) where personal unions between the Muslim Brotherhood and Ibn Rushd are presented. Also, not least, that the Muslim Brotherhood rests upon a totalitarian and fundamentally fascist ideology.

Within the defense sectors, there is knowledge of this, and the Public Education Council has come to the same conclusion. The Public Education Council’s report on the Ibn Rushd Study Association by Professor Erik Amnå, “When Trust Is Tested”, comes to the same conclusion. Amnå points out earlier warning signals in the form of the report that FOI (Swedish Defense Research Agency) produced for the SST (Swedish Support to Faith Communities) authorities through Rickard Lagervall. This study concluded that the study association, at the founding of the organization, rested upon the Brotherhood’s ideological and theological interpretation of the Koran.

Signs and Portents Everywhere… But of What? (Interlude)

Since posting his first installment of this treatise, Seneca III has acquired new information, and thus is interleaving it here.

Signs and Portents Everywhere… But of What?

by Seneca III

INTERLUDE — Party Politics in the raw, and Islamic angst ‘On Air’ in the time of Covid

In the comments to Part I, ‘K. from Germany’ pointed out an omission I had failed to notice whilst writing and proof-reading that article.

K. from Germany on May 3, 2020 at 2:55 am said:

“And there you will find no mention as to whom these paragons of rectitude are …” —

Follow the link they provided and then “membership” to arrive at this page:

committees.parliament.uk/committee/326/petitions-committee/membership

Not at all suggesting they can’t be corrupted. This whole establishment is rotten to the core. But they wisened up on how to pull one over the public so it won’t be as simple as counting Mohammeds.

To which I replied:

Seneca III on May 3, 2020 at 12:55 pm said:

Thank you for that, K. I will include a correction in the part of the series I am working on at the moment. And, also, if I can find the time, I will have a quick look at each of the members — that could turn out to be very interesting or turn up nothing at all.

Depending on what turns up and if it is politically interesting, I may have to skip including such an analysis in the current work in progress, which is already structured in note form, and save it for a later edition. Rgds, S III.

This I have done, and it was indeed an eye opener.

The Petitions Committee

To begin: The Northern arc of occupied territories stretches roughly and somewhat intermittently from the Manchester-Liverpool conglomerate in the West on the shores of the Irish Sea to Tyneside in the East on the shores of the North Sea.

It is a rich hunting ground for the Paedophiliac Slaves of Allah seeking more gender slaves, or ‘Fresh Meat’ as Islam has been known to refer to white girl children and young Western women as a whole, so let us have a look at this area and the MPs who represent some of the constituencies in those lost lands, and who also serve on the Petitions Committee.

Naturally my first ports of call were to be the Labour MPs whose lucrative parliamentary sinecures rely heavily, in some places predominantly, on the Muslim vote. There are four of these Marxist-Socialist drones out of a total of eleven members on the committee, and whilst they are not a majority, they do constitute a substantial and influential voting bloc, and the ones that do not represent overwhelmingly Muslim constituencies would have no doubt voted with the others out of Party solidarity.

Those latter two outliers are:

1. Kerry MacCarthy, Labour, Bristol East

Demographically, Bristol is not yet a mini-Caliphate but it is quite well and variously enriched, and is so ‘Woke’ and in love with Multiculturalism that it rarely sleeps as it demonstrates how easy it is for a once homogeneous community to commit racial suicide.

2. Chris Evans, Labour, Islwyn

Islwyn is a Welsh Parliamentary constituency that seems to have escaped the attentions of the grooming fraternity. It is, however, one of the safest dyed-in-the-wool Labour seats in the country. It was once held by the party’s former leader Neil Kinnock, who served as opposition leader for nearly a decade until 1992 and then went off to become an EU commissioner and made a personal fortune in the process, as did his wife, Glenys Elizabeth Kinnock, Baroness Kinnock of Holyhead FRSA, who was a Labour Party Member of the European Parliament (MEP) from 1994 to 2009. Nice work if you can get it.

The hard-core vote whoring Dhimmis are:

Call to Prayer Defies COVID-19 in El Vendrell

Yesterday’s post about Spain included a video clip by the Spanish populist party Vox that highlighted the contrast between the official treatment of Christians and that of Muslims under the Wuhan Coronavirus restrictions.

After a public outcry, the authorities in El Vendrell were actually forced to do something — or pretend to do something — about Muslims who violated social-distancing regulations to swarm an imam who bellowed the call to prayer in the street.

Easy Guide to Sharia Law

Here’s a useful summary of sharia in verse form.

Easy Guide to Sharia Law

by Michael Copeland

Stoning, flogging, amputation,
Schoolgirl genital mutilation,
Shootings in public, and hangings too,
The slitting of captives’ throats to view.

No freedom of conscience or freedom of speech,
Beheading for blasphemy happens for each.
Those who defect may be openly killed
By anyone else, and the law is fulfilled.

No tolerance ever for other faiths’ mission:
Killing enforces this strict prohibition.
Same-sex partners the law says slay,
Anyone freely can make it this way.

A father should kill his erring daughter,
Control is supreme: the sanction — slaughter.
Child brides of six, consummation at nine,
Sex-play with infants or beasts — all fine.

Short term marriage in exchange for rent,
Usable boys — no age of consent.
A man may marry four wives at a time,
And divorce them simply by quoting a rhyme.

A wife is a chattel to buy, beat, and use,
Obliged to submit, not allowed to refuse.
She may not go out of the house alone,
Or talk to a man who is not of her own.

Though a woman may testify all that she can
Her witness is rated half that of a man.
She’s only entitled to half the share
That a man will inherit if he is co-heir.

The Yodeling of the Muezzin is Heard in Lleida

The cathedral of Lérida (Lleida in Catalan) in Catalonia was recently violated by five Muslims equipped with a powerful audio system from which they then broadcast the azan — the Muslim call to prayer.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from the Spanish news agency Europa Press. The translator notes: “The text in the article says that the loudspeakers were set up next to the cathedral, though the video shows they are at or on the cathedral.”

PP criticizes Lleida for permitting call to prayer during Ramadan

The press spokesman of the PP [Partido Popular/People’s Party] in Lleida [Lérida], Xavier Palau, has criticized the Town Hall for allowing the Muslim community of the city to install loudspeakers next to the Cathedral of Seu Vella for the call to prayer during Ramadan, the party announced in a statement this Saturday.

He declared that the Catholics of Lleida didn’t receive any type of concession during Holy Week, since religious rites and processions have been suspended due to the coronavirus, and he opined that this “demonstrates the sectarianism that the Town Hall defends.”

“It seems to us a violation of the fundamental rights of the city as a whole, because the loudspeaker installed in the highest building forces all the citizens to listen to the call,” and he said that it seems to impose a belief, in his words.

See also this tweet (in Spanish), which includes a video of the caterwauling of the muezzin.

The Ikhwan in Sweden, Part Three

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating the third article in a series on the Muslim Brotherhood in Sweden (previously: Part 1, Part 2):

Muslim Brotherhood established in SIPRI

The Muslim Brotherhood’s network-and aid organizations reach an ever more established position within Swedish foreign policy sphere. As co-organizer with SIDA (Swedish International Development) and the Swedish Peace Research Institute, SIPRI, they are taking a larger place in Swedish foreign and security policies.

On 28 November 2019, SIDA arranged a breakfast seminar together with SIPRI and Islamic Relief on connections between peace-making work and humanitarian aid. The theme of the seminar was: “Implementation of the Humanitarian, Development, Peace Building Nexus”.

Islamic Relief is classified as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Israel, among others. Most of its leading representatives have repeatedly expressed anti-Semitic views and values. The international banks, UBS (Union Bank of Switzerland) and HSBC (UK) have closed the organization’s accounts after funding from the terrorist organization, Hamas, was revealed.

Islamic Relief was represented by Dr. Paul Quinn and Dr. Sylvia Brown, who, among others, highlighted Islamic Relief’s activity in the Philippines. Brown pointed out Islamic Relief’s work in the inclusion of children and women, which is based in the Koran.

Islamic Relief is one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s two aid organizations, along with Muslim Aid. Both are found to be represented in Sweden. In the leadership of Islamic Relief is found the Islamic Union in Sweden’s chairman and ex-union rector, Omar Mustafa. Mustafa earlier represented Sweden as a participant in a business delegation to Azerbaijan. Among the leadership of Muslim Aid is found the former housing minister, Mehmet Kaplan (MP).

An active member of Muslim Aid Sweden was earlier sentenced to six months in prison for terror financing. The judgment was appealed to the Supreme Court but was upheld in the autumn of 2019.

Swedish Islamic Relief is currently involved in collaboration with the Swedish Church, which Ledarsidorna.se previously reported on.

That Islamic Relief Philippines is highlighted is interesting. For the US Dept. of Treasury, the American finance department responsible for the USA’s list of terrorist-connected organizations, Islamic Relief is an old acquaintance. In 2006, Islamic Relief Philippines was placed on the USA’s sanction list of terror organizations, in accordance with the US President’s Executive Order 13224, after being caught passing economic resources to two al Qaeda-connected organizations, Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) and Jemaah Islamiyeh (JI).
