France: Decomposing in Front of Our Eyes

France will elect a new president in May 2017. Politicians are already campaigning and debating about deficits, welfare recipients, GDP growth, and so on, but they look like puppets disconnected from the real country.
What is reality in France today?
Violence. It is spreading. Not just terrorist attacks; pure gang violence. It instills a growing feeling of insecurity in hospitals, at schools, in the streets -- even in the police. The media does not dare to say that this violence is coming mainly from Muslim gangs -- "youths," as they call the in the French media, to avoid naming who they are. A climate of civil war, however, is spreading visibly in the police, schools, hospitals and politics.

The Police

The most jolting evidence of this malaise was to see more than 500 French police officers demonstrating with police cars and motorcycles on the night of October 17, without the backing of labor unions, without authorization, on the Champs Elysées in Paris. According to the daily, Le Figaro, "the Interior Ministry was in panic," frightened by a possible coup: "Police blocked access to the Avenue Marigny, which runs beside the Presidential Palace and overlooks the Place Beauvau."
On October 18, when Jean-Marc Falcone, director-general of National Police, met the leaders of the protest, he was surrounded by hundreds of police officers urging him to resign.
The main cause of their anger seems primarily the violence often directed against police, and terrorist attacks. On the terrorist level, two policemen were stabbed to death in Magnanville in June 2016 by a Muslim extremist, Larossi Aballa. This spring, more than 300 police officers and gendarmes were injured by demonstrators. In May, police unions demonstrated in the streets of Paris to protest "anti-police hatred."
This autumn, the last straw was an attack on a police patrol in the Paris suburb of Viry-Châtillon. Four officers were injured when a group of around 15 "youths" (Muslim gang-members) swarmed their cars in the town and hurled rocks and firebombs at them. Two policemen were badly burned; one had to be placed in an induced coma. The same scenario took place a few days later: a police patrol was ambushed in another no-go zone in the "sensitive" area of Val-Fourré.
Police were also aggrieved by Bernard Cazeneuve, the minister of interior, who called the attackers "sauvageons" ("little wild ones"). Police and opposition politicians replied that the attackers were not "little wild ones but criminals who attacked police to kill."
"Police are seen as an occupying force," declared Patrice Ribeiro of the Synergie Officiers police commanders' union. "It is not surprising that violence is spiking."
On October 18, Le Figaro launched an online poll online with one question: "Do you approve the protest by policemen?" Ninety percent of the 50,000 respondents answered "yes."
Since then, police demonstrations have spread to other cities. More than a month after the start of the discontent, police officers were still protesting in every big city. On November 24, two hundred police officers demonstrated in Paris between Place de la Concorde and the Arc de Triomphe, to express their "anger." Police in civilian clothes, some wearing orange armbands, some hidden under a scarf or hood, supported by citizens, gathered in the evening at the Place de la Concorde, before walking the length of the Champs Elysée up to the Arc de Triomphe, where they formed a human chain around the monument and sang La Marseillaise (France's national anthem).
This revolt of one pillar of French society, the police, was the biggest that ever happened in modern France. Yet, virtually no one in France's mainstream media covered the event.


Tremblay-en-France (Seine-Saint-Denis close to Paris): The headmaster of the Hélène-Boucher training school was attacked on October 17 by several individuals outside the school. Some "youths" were attacking the building with firebombs, and when the headmaster tried to calm the situation, one of the "youths" answered with blows. Fifty unidentified people were involved in the incident. This was the third episode of violence to occur in the vicinity. Four days earlier, two vehicles were torched.
One month later, the daily Le Monde held a meeting with several students, The goal of this meeting was to try to understand the cause of the violence in in Tremblay. Yacine, 21, a student at the University of Paris II, said: "This is a warning. These young people did not attack the school by chance; they wanted to attack the institution, to attack the State."
Argenteuil (Val d'Oise, suburb of Paris): A teacher at the Paul Langevin primary school, was beaten up in the street, on October 17, while leading children back to school from tennis courts a kilometer from the school. After hearing the teacher raise his voice at a child, two young men stopped their car, told the teacher he was a "racist" and beat him in front of the children. According to Le Parisien, one of the attackers justified his actions by accusing the professor of "racism". "You are not the master," said the man. "The only Master is Allah".
Colomiers (Toulouse, south of France). A physical-education teacher was assaulted by a student on October 17, when the teacher tried to stop the student from leaving the school through a prohibited exit.
Calais (Pas-de-Calais): Two students at a vocational training school in Calais attacked a teacher, and one fractured the teacher's jaw and several teeth on October 14, according the local paper, Nord-Littoral. The students attacked the electrical engineering teacher because he had asked one of the students to get back to work.
Saint-Denis (Seine Saint-Denis, suburb of Paris): On October 13, a school headmaster and his deputy were beaten by a vocational student who had been reprimanded for arriving late.
Strasbourg: A mathematics teacher was brutally attacked on October 17 at the Orbelin school. The headmaster of the institution told France Bleu that a "youth," who is not a student at the school, had beaten the teacher. This was not the first time that the "youth" had entered the building. Earlier, when the teacher asked him to leave his class, the "youth" delivered several blows to the teacher's face before fleeing.
All these attackers were not terrorists, but like Islamic terrorists, they apparently wanted to destroy "attack the institution, to attack the State."


On October 16, fifteen individuals accompanying a patient sowed terror in the emergency department of Gustave Dron Hospital in Tourcoing, according to La Voix du Nord. A doctor was severely beaten; another pulled by the hair. Doctors and nurses told the newspaper they were still in shock. Said a nurse:
"Ten people forced their way into the heart of the ER. The doctors asked them to leave... When everything stopped, I realized that the ER was ravaged, patients terrorized, relatives of patients crying."
The attackers were from the district of La Bourgogne, an area essentially populated with North African immigrants. Three people were arrested.
In the same area of La Bourgogne, there was a riot on October 4. Fourteen cars were burned and 12 people arrested. The riot, which lasted for four nights, broke out after the arrest of a driver who did not stop when asked to by a policeman.


On October 14, Nadine Morano, deputy of the opposition party Les Républicains, tried physically to prevent an Algerian businessman, Rachid Nekkaz, from entering the Center of Public Finance of Toul, in the east of France. Nekkaz is known for paying fines of Muslim women arrested because they were wearing a burqa in public, banned by law since October 2010. Police came to protect the right of Mr. Nekkaz to pay the fine. An amendment to the finance law is currently under discussion to block and punish practices, like those of Nekkaz, that circumvent the law.
President François Hollande is currently under fire after the publication of a book, A President Should Not Say That... In it, he is reported to have said, "France has a problem with Islam," and "there are too many migrants in France" -- remarks Hollande claims he never made. Another quote in the book that Hollande denies saying:
"We cannot continue to have migrants who arrive without control, in the context of the attacks... The secession of territories (no go zones)? How can we avoid a partition? Because it is still what is going to happen."
President Hollande spends his time apologizing for things he never said, but should have said because they are true.

French People

French Chinese: The French Chinese live in the same suburbs as Muslims and are attacked and harassed, to the general indifference of police.
As crime against community members has spiraled, about 50,000 ethnic Chinese staged a protest march in Paris on September 4, after the fatal mugging of a Chinese tailor.
The protesters, all of them wearing white T-shirts reading "Security for All" and waving French flags, rallied at the Place de la République. They had organized the demonstration by themselves and were not supported by the traditional "human rights" groups, which prefer to help Muslim migrants.
Public Opinion: In January 2016, Cevipof, a think tank of the Paris Institute of Political Studies (Sciences Po), released its seventh Barometer of Political Trust, a poll published annually to measure the values of democracy in the country, and based on interviews with 2074 people:
  • What is your current state of mind? Listlessness 31%, Gloom 29%, Mistrust 28%, Fear: 10%
  • Do you trust government? Not much 58%, not at all 32%
  • Do you trust lawmakers? Not much 39%, not at all 16%%
  • Do you trust the president? Not much 32%; not at all 38%
  • Do politicians care about what the people think? Not much 42%, not at all 46%
  • How democracy is working in France? Not well 43%, not well at all 24%
  • Do you trust political parties? Not much 47%, not at all 40%
  • Do you trust the media? Not much 48% not at all 27 %
  • What do you feel about politics? Distrust 39%; disgust 33%, boredom 8%
  • What do you feel about politicians? Disappointment 54%; disgust 20%
  • Corruption of politicians? Yes 76%
  • Too many migrants? Yes, plus tend to agree: 65%
  • Islam is a threat? Yes, plus tend to agree: 58%
  • Proud to be French? Yes 79%
What this poll shows is the gap between people and politicians has never been so vast.
Thibaud de Montbrial, lawyer and expert on terrorism, declared on October 19 to Le Figaro:
The term "dislocation" of French society seems appropriate. Violence against police, hospitals, attacks that multiply against schools and teachers... are attacks against pillars of the ruling domain. In other words, everything that represents state institutions (...) is now subjected to violence based on essentially sectarian and sometimes ethnic excesses, fueled by an incredible hatred of our country. We must be blind or unconscious not to feel concern for national cohesion."

Migrant Arrested for Suspected Rape and Attempted Murder

A 31-year-old Iraqi migrant has been arrested in Germany on allegations that he attempted to rape a young woman, raped another, and tried to kill one of his victims.

Police in the German city of Bochum arrested the asylum seeker after a week-long search. The man is accused of raping two Chinese women in separate incidents in the university district of the city, reports Donau Kurier.
The first victim of the man was a 21-year-old Chinese student at the Ruhr University who is alleged to have been raped on August 6th, and the second victim, also a Chinese student attending the university, aged 27 was attacked on November 16th. Chief Prosecutor for Bochum, Andreas Bachmann, confirmed that the migrant’s saliva matched DNA evidence gathered at the two crime scenes.
The authorities say that the 31-year-old has denied any involvement in the crimes. The migrant, who came to Bochum with his wife and two children in December of 2015, was ultimately caught after a companion of the second victim was able to take a photograph of him with his mobile phone following the migrant’s attempt to sexually assault her.
The photograph allowed the police to identify the migrant after they conducted a search of a nearby asylum camp. Investigators say they are also looking to see if his DNA matches with any other sexual assaults that have also taken place in the area.
Migrant sex assaults have made headlines in Germany for the past year but the case of the rape and murder of student Maria Ladenburger has sparked fresh debate on the migrant policies of the German government. Miss Ladenburger, who was the daughter of a European Union official, was raped and murdered while cycling home from a party and was a frequent visitor to a nearby asylum home where she volunteered, helping migrants.
The case has caused many in Germany to insist that not all migrants should be judged based on the actions of the Afghan national who is suspect of committing the murder. Others, like police union boss Rainer Wendt, have taken a different stance saying that “This and many other victims would not exist if our country would have been prepared for the dangers that are always associated with massive immigration”.

In Portugal, a similar incident to that in Bochum occurred this week in which an Eritrean migrant who arrived in October was arrested after being suspected of raping an elderly homeless woman. Police say the migrant caused nasal fractures to the 67-year-old woman as he brutally assaulted her before a passerby chased him off.

Afghan Migrants Brutally Rape Underage Boy and Film the Attack

Five Afghani migrants in the Swedish city of Uppsala brutally raped an underage boy for over an hour in the woods and reports claim they filmed the attack on their mobile phones.

The boy, who is said to be under the age of 15, was assaulted in the woods in the Swedish city by the five Afghans aged 16 and 17 at knifepoint for well over an hour. The ordeal took place in the early morning hours of October the 25th and the five migrants have all been charged with sexual offences on a minor, Aftonbladet reports.
One of the migrants who filmed the attack on his mobile phone later posted the graphic footage to social media. Authorities have brought charges of creation of child pornography to the migrant who filmed the attack, as well.
The victim, who also comes from Afghanistan, was severely beaten according to a court document. It stated the attackers beat him around the head before “grabbing the defendant, covering his mouth and dragging or carrying him into a woodland area”.
It is also claimed that the boy was spat on and had his back bitten by one of the young Afghanis.

The five migrants have all denied that they assaulted the young boy and some have even said they were not present during the assault. Police have shown that the mobile phone footage clearly shows the faces of the migrants carrying out the assault.Officers say the victim was intimidated and threatened with the footage as the attackers told the boy they would post it on Facebook if he told police – which they did anyway before being arrested.
Prosecutor Johan Strömbäck says that he wants the teens to be deported if they are found guilty. Defence lawyer Stefan Wallin claims that his client didn’t have any recollection of being present at the attack saying: “He has no recollection of the events because of alcohol intoxication.”
The case bears a striking similarity to another rape of an underage migrant in Sweden earlier this year. In February, a 15-yeatr-old Afghan migrant was raped by a group of fellow migrants.
The child was taken out to a field outside an asylum centre in the city of Malmö where two older Afghan boys sexually abused him and struck multiple blows to his head.
In April, a migrant girl was raped in Sweden by an Afghan who claimed to be underage, but was revealed to be an adult. The man raped the 15-year-old girl as they watched a TV programme together at an asylum home and was later arrested. The young girl had only been in the country for two days before the assault.

After Daughter is Murdered by Muslim Migrant, Family Wants Donations for Muslim Migrants

To many people this behavior would seem insane. But I have seen it before.
The upscale family whose son or daughter ends up mugged and dead visiting a trendy inner city nightspot pours money into a local community center. The family who lose a child to terrorism who engage in "dialogue" with the terrorists. Human behavior can be very odd sometimes. And a self-destructive course is hard to shift.
A young girl died and rather than contemplate the reasons why, her family would like more young girls to be raped and murdered. It's sick. It's tragic. And yet all too human in a twisted sort of way.

The family of an EU official's teenage daughter who was allegedly raped and murdered by an Afghan migrant in Germany has asked for well-wishers to donate money to a refugee charity.
Medical student Maria Ladenburger, who had also taken time out to help asylum seekers as a volunteer, was found dead in a river in the south-western German university city of Freiburg in October.
The first picture has since emerged of Hussein K., the 17-year-old Afghan asylum seeker who was arrested on suspicion of the rape and murder after a hair matching the alleged perpetrator was found at the crime scene.
As the 19-year-old student's family tries to come to terms with their loss, they have asked for donations to be made to an organisation that aids refugees.

And not just any charity...
As well as a project of the Catholic Church in Bangladesh they point at a student initiative in Freiburg. The organisation, called 'weitblick' ('wide view'), writes on their website that they support refugees and asylum seekers with family sponsorships.
They make regular excursions and activities with asylum seekers and also look after a small multilingual library on site. The organisation also gives courses to pupils to educate them about the issues of refugees and migration.
It's hard to think of a better way to put more girls like Maria at risk.
Detectives on the 60 strong murder squad are still probing the possibility that he knew Maria through her work with refugees.

Few people who commit evil acts think that they are doing evil. Maria's family certainly doesn't.

Merkel's "Getting Tough" With Islam Won't Fool Anyone

After filling Germany with a horde of Muslim migrants who went on to carry out mass sexual assaults, among other civic acts, Merkel is trying to run for office yet again. And this time she's promising to ban the Burka.
Banning the Burka is well and good, but it's become the European equivalent of banning flag burning. It's a narrow approach to a much bigger problem that exists mainly as a source of political theater. And which politicians often have no intent to carry out or expect the courts to block for them.
Notably, Merkel is emphasizing her policy as one of those "whenever legally possible" deals which all but telegraphs that she isn't serious about it. Not that it would come as a surprise.
Despite her near Stalinesque numbers, much of Merkel's party is running scared and proposing tougher measures. Germany is a very different place, culturally, than the UK or the US. Merkel's endless time on the throne alone testifies to that. But Merkel's migrant disaster was much bigger and took effect much faster. The political consequences of that may only be coming.

Eritrean ‘Refugee’ Arrested for Brutal Rape of Homeless Pensioner


An Eritrean housed in a Portuguese “refugee” facility has been detained for the brutal rape and beating of a homeless pensioner on Thursday.

The Eritrean migrant, who arrived in Portugal at the end of October, left the victim naked and with multiple fractures. Footage taken by local media shows blood splattered all over the floor and walls at the scene of the horrific attack.
Ibrahim Salem approached the 67-year-old homeless woman, who was sheltering from the cold in the doorway of a bank in downtown Albufeira, at 4.50 on Thursday morning.
The Judicial Police reported that “through the use of physical force”, and “in the face of the victim’s resistance” he beat her, “causing maxillofacial and nasal fractures”.
Salem was among a group of 15 migrants relocated from Italy at the end of October and granted asylum in Portugal. The group, including the Eritrean, were being hosted nearby by the “social solidarity” non-profit, Antonio Silva Leal Foundation.
The organisation purports to offer protection to “children, youth, adults and seniors at risk of social disintegration and exclusion”.
A passerby, upon seeing the attack, chased the Eritrean to a bus terminal where he managed to hold him until the police arrived.
“I chased him to the old bus terminal and grabbed him. I alerted the police to the situation and was able to hand the [attacker] over to them,” the 21-year-old said.
The victim was naked and convulsing after the attack and “blood was everywhere”, the young man who intervened told Correio da Manhã.
Portugal’s most widely-read newspaper reported that “bleeding profusely”, the woman was taken to hospital “in a serious condition” by the emergency services.
Following a brief investigation into the incident by the Judicial Police, a judge ordered that Salem be put into custody.

Several crimes by Eritrean migrants have shocked Europe in recent months. Earlier this year, a “refugee” from Eritrea raped a 79-year-old woman as she was visiting her sister’s grave in the German town of Ibbenbueren.

German State Media Defends Not Reporting Girl Raped and Murdered by ‘Refugee’


Germany’s leading news programme has been slammed for failing to report the rape and murder of the 19-year-old daughter of an EU official by an Afghan ‘refugee’.

The Tagesschau show, produced by ARD, the world’s largest public broadcaster, claimed that the story was “too regional”. Others, however, blame political correctness and an establishment desire to silence criticism of mass migration.
Last week’s revelation that 19-year-old Maria Ladenburger – a medical student, migrant home volunteer, and daughter of a prominent European Union (EU) official – was attacked and killed by a recently-arrived 17-year-old migrant shocked the nation.
Despite having a budget of €6.5 billion (£5.5 billion) and 20,617 employees, the public broadcaster decided not to allocate resources to bringing the story to national attention.
ARD’s editor-in-chief, Kai Gniffke, played down the decision, arguing they “very rarely report on individual criminal cases”.
However, Ansgar Heveling, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrat Union (CDU) party and chairman of the Bundestag Interior Committee, suggested the decision was suspicious.
“I think the decision of the Tagesschau is wrong because it naturally gives the impression that you do not want to report because the suspect is an unaccompanied minor asylum seeker. Such an impression is fatal,” he told Frankfurter Allgemeine.
German’s media has been heavily criticised before for allegedly covering up stories showing migrants in a bad light since the migrant crisis began.
Establishment broadcasters only reported the sexual assault, rape, and robbery of more than 1,000 women last New Year’s Eve in Cologne, almost a week late, after Breitbart London and other alternative news sites exposed the story online.
Local media later apologised for failing to report on the attacks. Leaked documents and e-mails showed the police were also under pressure to keep quiet about the migrant attacks.
Tagesschau ran a belated report on the murder of Miss Ladenburger, inviting Chancellor Angela Merkel on to the show, where she insisted the crime must be played down.
“If it turns out that it was an Afghan refugee, then that is absolutely to be condemned, just like with every other killer,” she said.
Adding: “But, it is also to be clearly stated… that this can not be connected to the rejection of a whole group, just as we can not otherwise conclude about other groups.”
The victim’s father, Dr. Clemens Ladenburger, is a lawyer who assists the legal director of the European Commission, and it has been suggested his daughter’s funeral was used to make a political point.

The media has widely reported that Miss Ladenburger was a supporter of mass migration and the ceremony was used to raise money for charities that are working to bring more migrants into Germany.

Police Chief Blames Merkel Migrant Policy for Teenage Girl Murder-Rape


German federal police chief Rainer Wendt has blamed the mass migration policies of German Chancellor Angela Merkel for the death of Maria Landenburger who was killed by an Afghani migrant.

Mr. Wendt said, “This and many other victims would not exist if our country would have been prepared for the dangers that are always associated with massive immigration,” Die Welt reports.
Wendt also spoke of pro-migrant supporters criticising their attitudes toward mass migration saying “while relatives mourn and victims experience unspeakable suffering, the representatives of the ‘welcome culture’ are silent”, adding that they had “not a word of compassion, nowhere there is self-doubt, only arrogant insistence on one’s own noble disposition”.
He then said that the harsh realities of the migrant policy of Angela Merkel was being “passed over to the victims and to a police and judiciary, which had been spared for years. And so the dangers for our country are constantly growing”, he noted.
Several other politicians and public figures have weighed in after the announcement over the weekend that the perpetrator of the rape and murder was an underage Afghan migrant who had come during the migrant crisis.
Former Socialist Party mayor of Berlin-Neukölln, Heinz Buschkowsky said: “The perpetrator came from a brutal, patriarchal society and behaved towards women as if they were always available. It will take generations to change this attitude so people will learn our central European world of values.”
However, many other politicians decided to use the opportunity to claim that not all migrants should be held under suspicion despite the huge wave of crime associated with the migrant crisis over the past year. Socialist Party leader Sigmar Gabriel said: “We must not allow this abominable act to be abused for agitation and conspiracy propaganda. It is clear to all: Refugees can commit just as terrible crimes as people born in Germany.”
The murder of Maria echoes that of Alexandra Mezher in Sweden earlier this year. Both Alexandra and Maria worked in asylum homes and while both wanted to help migrants they ended up the victims of migrant-perpetrated violence.

Police in Freiburg continue to investigate the case and some question whether or not the Afghan migrant suspected of the crime was also involved in a similar case in  the nearby town of Endingen in which a female jogger, Carolin G., was also murdered.

The West's Politically Correct Dictatorship

It might look like a golden age for free speech: more than a billion tweets, Facebook posts and blogs every day. But beneath this surface, freedom of expression is dramatically retreating.
Students at the City University of London, home to one of Britain's most respected schools of journalism, voted to ban three newspapers from its campus: The Sun, Daily Mail and Express. Their "crime", according to the approved motion, is to have published stories against migrants, "Islamophobic" articles, and "scapegoating the working classes that they so proudly claim to represent." City University, supposedly a place dedicated to openness and questioning, became the first Western educational institution to vote for censorship, and ban "right wing newspapers."
The filmmaker David Cronenberg called this self-censorship, after the massacre at Charlie Hebdo: "a weird, serpentine political correctness." It is one of the most lethal ideological poisons of the 21st century. It is not only closed-minded and ridiculous, it makes us blind to the radical Islam that is undermining our mental and cultural defenses.
The countless attacks by Muslim extremists testify that the multicultural world to which we have been led is a fiction. Political correctness simply encourages the Islamists to raise the stakes to win the war they are advancing. The resulting tension has been fed by the Western elites with their sense of guilt for "colonialism" in the Third World.
"ISIS Threaten Sylvania" -- an art exhibition featuring cute little stuffed animals picnicking on a lawn, and unaware of other cute little stuffed animal terrorists carrying assault rifles on a knoll just behind them -- is the work of the artist known as Mimsy (she hides her identity). The protagonists of this series of light box tableaux are a family of stuffed animal dolls that inhabits an enchanted valley. Gunmen, dressed like the Islamic State henchmen, strike the innocent inhabitants of the valley, at school and on the beach, at a picnic or in a gay pride parade. It looks like an updated version of Maus by Art Spiegelman, a graphic novel depicting Nazi cats and Jewish mice during the Holocaust.
Those wishing to see this artistic panel at the Mall Galleries, in London, will now have to console themselves with the work of Jamie McCartney, "The Great Wall Vagina," nine meters of female genitalia, less important and less provocative.
The brave work of Mimsy, after the British police defined it "inflammatory," has been eliminated from the program of this London cultural event. Its organizers informed the gallery owners that if they wanted to put it on display, they would have to shell out £36,000 ($46,000) to "secure the venue" for the six days of the exhibition.
Under this politically correct dictatorship, Western culture has established two principles. First, freedom of speech can be restricted any time someone claims that an opinion is an "insult." Second, there is a vicious double standard: minorities, especially Muslims, can freely say whatever they want against Jews and Christians.
And so it came to pass that the most famous Spanish football team, Real Madrid, removed the cross from its crest after a commercial deal with Gulf emirate of Abu Dhabi. The Christian symbol was quickly ditched to please the Islamic Gulf sponsors.
Perhaps soon the West will be soon asked to change the flag of the European Union -- twelve yellow stars on a blue background -- because it contains a Christian message in code. Arsène Heitz, who designed it in 1955, was inspired by the Christian iconography of the Virgin Mary with a crown and twelve stars on her head: what a heartless "Western Christian supremacist" message!
Political correctness is also having a huge impact on big business: Kellogg's withdrew advertising from Breitbart for being "not aligned with our values" and Lego dropped advertising with Daily Mail, to mention just two recent cases.
It should not cause alarm if companies want to decide where to advertise their products, but it is very alarming when it happens due to "ideology." We have never read about companies abandoning a newspaper or website because it was too liberal or "leftist." If the Arab-Islamic regimes were follow these views, why should they not ask their companies to stop advertising in Western newspapers that publish articles critical of Islam, or which publish pictures of half-naked women?
Libraries on US campuses are now putting "trigger warnings" on works of literature: students are advised, for example, that Ovid's sublime Metamorphosis "justifies" rape. Stanford University even managed to exclude Dante, Homer, Plato, Aristotle, Shakespeare and other giants of Western culture from the academic curricula in 1988: supposedly many of their masterpieces are "racist, sexist, reactionary, repressive." This is the vocabulary of Western surrender before totalitarian Islamic fundamentalism.
France has removed great figures, such as Charlemagne, Henry IV, Louis XIV and Napoleon, from schools, to replace them, for instance, with studying the history of Mali and other African kingdoms. At school, children are taught that Westerners are Crusaders, colonizers and "bad." In purportedly justifying the repudiation of France and its Judeo-Christian culture, schools have fertilized the soil in which Islamic extremism develops and flourishes unimpeded.
It is a question of priorities: no one can deny that France is under Islamist siege. Last week, France's intelligence service discovered another terror plot. But what is the priority of the Socialist government? Restricting freedom of expression for pro-life "militants." The Wall Street Journal called it "France's War on Anti-Abortion Speech." France already has one of the most permissive and liberal bodies of legislation on abortion. But political correctness makes one blind and ideological. "In four and a half years, the Socialists have reduced our freedom of expression and attacked public freedoms," commented Riposte Laïque.
In the US, academia is rapidly closing its doors to any debate. At Yale, professors and students these days are very busy with a new cultural emergency: "renaming." They are changing the name of buildings to erase all traces of slavery and colonialism -- a revisionism out of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia.
Everywhere in the US and in the UK, an air of hostility is spreading against opinions and ideas that could cause even a hint of distress in students. The result is the rise of what a writer such as Bret Easton Ellis called "Generation Wuss".
The jihadists surely grin at this Western political correctness, since the result of this ideology will be the abolition of the Western critical spirit and a surreal reeducation of the masses through the annihilation of our history and a hatred of our truly liberal past.
Bristol University in the UK just came under fire for attempting to "no-platform" Roger Scruton for his views on same-gender marriage. Meanwhile, British universities are giving a platform to radical Islamic preachers. In the politically correct universe, conservative thinkers are more dangerous than ISIS supporters. London's former mayor, Boris Johnson, called this dystopia "the Boko Haram of political correctness."
Students and faculty at the Rutgers University in New Jersey cancelled a speech by former US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice. Students and professors at Scripps College in California protested the presence of another former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, who, according to the protesters, is a "war criminal."
A New York University professor, Michael Rectenwald, who attacked political correctness and the coddling of students, was recently booted from the classroom after his colleagues complained about his "incivility". The liberal studies professor was forced to go on paid leave. "It's an alarming curtailment of free expression to the point where you can't even pretend to be something without authorities coming down on you in the universities," Rectenwald told the New York Post.
There is no better ally of Islamic extremism than this sanctimony of liberal censorship: both, in fact, want to suppress any criticism of Islam, as well as any proud defense of the Western Enlightenment or Judeo-Christian culture.
Censorship is happening not only in the liberal enclaves on the coasts of the United States, but also in France. The Eagles of Death Metal -- the American band that was performing at Paris' Bataclan Theater when ISIS terrorists murdered 89 people there on November 13, 2015 -- were banned by two music festivals: Rock en Seine and Cabaret Vert. The reason? Jesse Hughes, the band's frontman, gave a very politically incorrect interview:
"Did your French gun control stop a single f*cking person from dying? I think the only thing that stopped it was some of the bravest men that I've ever seen charging head-first into the face of death with their firearms. I think the only way that my mind has been changed is that maybe until nobody has guns everybody has to have them. Because I've never seen anyone that's ever had one dead, and I want everyone to have access to them, and I saw people die that maybe could have lived, I don't know."
After the jihadist massacre at Orlando's Pulse gay nightclub, Facebook enforced the pro-Islamic injunction and banned a page of the magazine Gaystream, after it had published an article critical of Islam in the wake of the bloodbath. Gaystream's director, David Berger, had heavily criticized the director of the Gay Museum in Cologne, Birgit Bosold, who had told German media that gays should be more frightened of white bigoted men than of Islamic extremists.
Jim Hoft, a gay journalist who is the creator of the popular Gateway Pundit blog, was suspended from YouTube. Twitter, one of the vehicles of this new intolerance, suspended the account of Milo Yiannopoulos, a prominent gay critic of Islamic fundamentalism -- but probably not the accounts of Islamic fundamentalists who criticize gays. Twitter even formed a "Trust and Safety Council." It brings to mind Saudi Arabia's "Council for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice." Could it be an inspiration for the liberal mullahs?
Yes, it might have looked like a golden age for free speech. But under this dictatorship of political correctness, the only "win-win" is for political Islam.

Underage Migrant Charged with Plotting Terror Attack

An underage Syrian migrant has been arrested and charged in Cologne for having links to Islamic State and for plotting a terror attack.

The 16-year-old Syrian migrant, who had come into Germany during the course of the migrant crisis, was arrested in September, Austrian paper Kurier reports.
Attorney general Ulf Willuhn said that the 16-year-old would officially be charged with preparing serious violence that threatens the wellbeing of the state. Police claim that the migrant was actively plotting to build an explosive device and say that he had contact with Islamic State fighters who were instructing him on building a bomb.
Mr. Willuhn noted that despite the migrant being a terrorism suspect, he would be tried as a juvenile because he is underage. If convicted of plotting a terrorist attack, the Syrian can be expected to receive a sentence of community service or possible imprisonment in a juvenile facility.
The case reflects growing fears on behalf of the police and security services in Germany of the radicalisation of underage migrants and underage Muslims. Wolfgang Trusheim, head of the Frankfurt state police, has been one of the most vocal members of the German law enforcement community to speak out on the worrying trend of Salafist parents and preachers radicalising young Muslims.
Radical Islamic Salafist preachers have also been caught actively trying to convert and recruit underage migrants in asylum homes.  Over the last year, the German Interior Ministry has recorded over 300 cases in which Salafist preachers have directly targeted underage migrants. The government says that the Salafists disguise their recruitment by bringing food and cash for the migrants to build up their trust before radicalising them.
Several radical Islamist attacks in Germany have been conducted by underage migrants since the migrant crisis. An attack on a train in Würzburg saw several injured by an underage migrant wielding an axe. Experts were shocked at the rapid speed attacker Muhammed Riyad, also known at Riaz A., was radicalised via Islamic State propaganda on the internet.

In another attack that ultimately failed in Ansbach, a young failed asylum seeker from Syria killed himself and injured a dozen others after the bomb he built went off prematurely. The Syrian planned to plant the device in an open air music festival to cause mass casualties.

Undercover Report: Islamic Radicalism Rife in ‘Hotbed of Terror’ Asylum Homes

German-Pakistani journalist Shams Ul-Haq went undercover to several German asylum homes under false identities and found them full of radical Islamic recruiters and believers.

A former taxi driver and private investigator, Pakistan-born Shams Ul-Haq now works as a freelance journalist in Germany, where he has lived for 15 years. Seeing himself in a unique position to be able to infiltrate the German asylum system he used false identities to travel to various asylum homes to discover the truth on reports of growing levels of Islamic radicalisation, reports Die Welt.
Calling himself “Wakar Ahmad” he infiltrated the giant Tempelhof asylum home in Berlin, in Potsdam he was known as “Osman”, in Eisenhüttenstadt “Raja”, and he even managed to apply for asylum on the Swiss border town of Kreuzlingen under the name “Jamal”. The writer was shocked to discover the level of support in each area for radical Islamic ideas.
“The large refugee homes are a breeding ground for Salafism and extremism,” he writes in his new book entitled Die Brutstätte des Terrors or The Hotbed of Terror. Hanging around the migrants from various countries like Iraq, Syria, and Libya he noticed the proliferation of drug dealing in the asylum homes as well as the ultra-religious Salafist volunteers who cropped up at each home as “volunteers”.
According to Ul-Haq, the Salafists would come to the asylum homes and spread wild rumours to the asylum seekers, saying that Germany would require them to convert to Christianity. He also noted the worse the conditions were in the camps, the easier it was for the Salafists to recruit migrants to become what he called “Holy Warriors”.
Ul-Haq also said that he doubts the official numbers of asylum seekers being investigated for terror links released by Federal Police boss Holger Münch. Official figures state that just over 400 migrants are under suspicion of terror links but Ul-Haq says he expects the real number of at least ten times that figure.
When staying at the Berlin Tempelhof, he said he often overheard talk of an Islamic State sleeper cell in the German capital, and had personally met a Chechen in Eisenhüttenstadt who referred to himself as a Mujahideen.
Along with the rampant radicalism, the investigative journalist noted the multitude of abuses of the asylum procedure by migrants.  A Pakistani he met had claimed to have filed dozens of asylum applications across Europe and received thousands of euros as a result. A Libyan he met said that he had been studying in Germany and didn’t want to go home so applied for asylum and pretended he didn’t know any German.
Migrants who had been living in Germany for a long time even frequented the asylum homes, Ul-Haq claims, saying that they would stop by to use the free internet, eat free food, see doctors on site, and even bank pocket money despite the fact they didn’t live there.

While Ul-Haq does not believe that every radicalised asylum seeker will commit terror attacks, he says that they play a role in the infrastructure of Islamic state cells, passing on messages to those who will conduct attacks. “They are considered cannon fodder, and when a cell goes on the run, it is them who are first arrested by the police,” he said.

Home Office Allow Pakistani Hate Preacher To Deliver Speech in Scotland

hate preacher

A hate preacher linked to the murder of Ahmadi Muslim Asad Shah in Glasgow has been cleared to enter the UK to spread his message in Scotland.

Pakistani cleric Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri has been banned from preaching by the authorities in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city thanks to his “firebrand” image and zealous message. Yet the British authorities have given him the go ahead to speak at Falkirk Central Mosque later this month.
Qadri is a supporter of Mumtaz Qadri, the Islamic extremist who in January 2011 murdered populist politician Salman Taseer for speaking out against Pakistan’s blasphemy laws, Scotland’s Sunday Post has reported.
Mumtaz Qadri was also idolised by Bradford taxi driver Tanveer Ahmed, who travelled to Glasgow earlier this year to brutally murder shopkeeper Asad Shah after he wished his customers a happy Easter on Facebook.
According to the paper, Qadri praises Ahmed in some of his sermons for carrying out the bloody murder.
Fiyaz Mughal, director of anti-extremist group Faith Matters, said: “No individual who promotes sectarianism internationally should be allowed into the UK as there is a risk statements would be made that further inflame issues in the UK or create issues that our country does not need.”
Scottish Conservative equalities spokesman Annie Wells MSP said: “If this individual is deemed too extreme for Pakistan, then that tells you all you need to know about his views. There’s no place for this kind of hate preaching in Scotland, and we shouldn’t tolerate it.”
The report comes at it emerges that the Home Office prevented three Syriac Orthodox archbishops from travelling to the UK to attend the consecration of a new Syriac Orthodox cathedral in London, a decision which provoked dismay among the Christian community.
In response, the Home Office has said only that it will not comment on individual cases. But Members of Parliament have said that that is not good enough.
MP Siobhain McDonagh, who has campaigned for a clampdown on extremists preachers entering the UK, spoke of her shock at Qadri being allowed to travel to the UK.

She said: “I’m amazed that somebody can be banned in Karachi but get entry clearance to the UK. The Home Office has got to stop hiding behind the line it does not comment on individual cases because this is a real issue for everyone in the UK.”

Erdogan's Gritted-Teeth Peace with Israel: Equates IDF with Hitler

Modern Turkey has never been so disconnected from its Western allies. Its Islamist president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, recently accused the West of helping the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). His evidence? Because, he said, ISIS is fighting with Western weapons -- overlooking, of course, that they were probably captured or stolen.
This dislike and hostility is not unrequited. On November 24, the European Parliament voted overwhelmingly for a motion calling to suspend Turkey's membership talks with the European Union (EU), citing "disproportionate, repressive measures" taken by Erdogan's government. The motion, although non-binding, passed 479 to 37 in favor. In retaliation, Erdogan threatened that "if the EU goes further," Turkey will open its border gates and let refugees stream toward Europe.
The Turks, too, are distancing themselves from the idea of EU membership. According to a survey by the pollsters ANDY-AR, 75.3% of Turks believe that their country is drifting away from accession, while only 19.9% believe it is not. Forty-four percent think freezing membership talks would be a positive development.
Confirming the growing anti-Western mood, Erdogan's spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin, wrote in a newspaper column: "With its internal problems, micro-nationalisms and the Brexit process, Europe is narrowing down its strategic outlook and losing its relevance."
Against this backdrop, Turkey is normalizing its relations with Israel -- in theory, at least. Ankara and Jerusalem agreed to appoint ambassadors to each other's country after an absence of more than six years. Two prominent career diplomats, Kemal Okem and Eitan Na'eh, will struggle to improve ties in Tel Aviv and Ankara, respectively. They will have a hard job. The diplomats may be willing, but with Erdogan's persistent Islamist ideological pursuits, they would seem to have only a slim chance of succeeding.
Turkey's dwindling Jewish community is uneasy over increasing signs of anti-Semitism in an increasingly Islamized country. In Istanbul, where a majority of Turkey's 17,000 Jews live, unknown people recently started hanging posters in a posh district. The posters call on Muslims "not to be fooled by the missionary activities of Jew-servant Jehovah's Witnesses." They say: "These people are trying to destroy the religion of Islam." Signed: Sons of Ottomans.
Feeling unsafe, more than 2,500 Turkish Jews have recently applied for Spanish citizenship, and hundreds applied for Portuguese citizenship. Only last year, 250 Turkish Jews emigrated to Israel. That being the case, Islamist Turks are warning their fellow Muslims against missionary activities of Jehovah's Witnesses who are, according to them, "servants of Jews."
This is not surprising. Erdogan has pragmatically agreed to shake hands with Israel, but his ideological hostility to the Jewish state and his ideological love affair with Hamas have not disappeared.
Only a week after Turkey and Israel officially resumed full diplomatic relations, in an interview with Israel's Channel 2 television, Erdogan refused to back down from his earlier comments equating Israel's military action in Gaza in 2014 to Hitler's atrocities.
Erdogan said: "I don't agree with what Hitler did and I don't agree with what Israel did in Gaza." Erdogan thinks that Israel's military action in response to Hamas's rockets indiscriminately targeting Israeli citizens is no different than the murder of six million Jews by a lunatic. "There is no point in comparing and asking who is more barbaric," Erdogan concluded. In other words, Erdogan thinks that Hitler and the Israel Defense Forces are "equally barbaric."
What else? Erdogan said that he is in constant contact with Hamas officials and that he does not believe Hamas is a terrorist organization. What, then is Hamas? According to Erdogan, Hamas is a "political movement born from the national resurrection."
During the interview, Erdogan was asked if he was aware of the shock his reference to Hitler caused among Jews. He replied: "I'm very well aware ... But is the Jewish community aware of what is done (in Gaza)?"
Much of Erdogan's hostile sentiment over Israel is religious. So is his admiration of Hamas. There is a point of irony, too, in this equation. The total amount of humanitarian aid Turkey has ever sent to Gaza is worth about half of the value of goods, measured at about 400 trucks, that Israel sends to Gaza each and every day.
In other remarks, Erdogan accused Israel of restricting Muslim worship. He called on all Muslims to embrace the "Palestinian cause and protect Jerusalem" -- which he seems to think is a Muslim city.

Yes, blessed are the peacemakers. Nevertheless, the Turkish-Israeli "peace" will not be easy to sustain.
