Germany: Muslim gang rape victim stabbed in honor killing ordered by her own mother because she was “unclean”

Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. A manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy by Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, says that “retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” (‘Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2). In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law. In this case, of course, the victim was the murderer’s wife, a victim to the culture of violence and intimidation that such laws help create.
The Palestinian Authority gives pardons or suspended sentences for honor murders. Iraqi women have asked for tougher sentences for Islamic honor murderers, who get off lightly now. Syria in 2009 scrapped a law limiting the length of sentences for honor killings, but “the new law says a man can still benefit from extenuating circumstances in crimes of passion or honour ‘provided he serves a prison term of no less than two years in the case of killing.’” And in 2003 the Jordanian Parliament voted down on Islamic grounds a provision designed to stiffen penalties for honor killings. Al-Jazeera reported that “Islamists and conservatives said the laws violated religious traditions and would destroy families and values.”
Until the encouragement Islamic gives to honor killing is acknowledged and confronted, more women will suffer.

“Syrian gang rape victim who fled to Germany after her ordeal is stabbed to death ‘in honour killing ordered by her own mother because she was seen as unclean after her sex assault,'” by Allan Hall, MailOnline, October 7, 2015 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):
A woman whose family branded her ‘unclean’ after she was gang-raped in her Syrian homeland has been found murdered in Germany – allegedly on the orders of her own mother.
Police believe the victim, named only as Rokstan M, 20, was stabbed to death by her father and brothers in the twisted logic that she had brought disgrace on her family through the sex attack.
Shortly before she was found dead in an allotment garden in the eastern German city of Dessau, she apparently had a premonition of her fate.
Writing on her WhatsApp profile, she said: ‘I am awaiting death. But I am too young to die.’
Rokstan had been living in a house for single women before returning to her family a few days before she was murdered and buried in a shallow grave.
The killing has served to pull into sharp focus the cultural gulf between Germans and the more than one million refugees expected to arrive in the country this year.
Rokstan had arrived in Germany two years ago following her ordeal.
Authorities say she was well integrated into society and worked as a translator for asylum seekers navigating their way through German bureaucracy.
Author Mark Krüger, who employed her to interpret interviews he conducted with refugees for a book he is writing, said: ‘Rokstan told me her terrible fate after she had helped me with translations.’
He listened to a tape she made in which she said: ‘I was taken by three men. Ever since that time my family have regarded me as unclean.
‘My mother and my brothers mistreat me. They say that I deserve to die.’
Her body was found on Friday in the family’s allotment in Dessau. An autopsy showed she had been stabbed several times.
Local prosecutor Christian Preissner said: ‘There is the suspicion that the act was carried out by persons in her close circle with a culture motive in the background.’
The father and brothers are wanted for questioning but are nowhere to be found.
The Federal Police believe the father, Hasso, has fled Germany and is now in either Turkey or Syria.
But author Krüger claimed the mother actually ordered the killing and once tried to hire a hit man to carry it out….


‘Integration Has Failed’: Danes Changing Laws to Exclude Foreigners From Citizenship

by Oliver Lane 

The immigration ministry will be one of the most legislatively busy in Denmark this parliament, with 17 legal changes put forward to make it tougher for foreigners to get citizenship. While many of the new laws proposed may seem harsh, they have been formulated with the best interests of the nation at heart. Heavy emphasis is now placed on the ability of foreigners to integrate and contribute in Danish society, giving hope to fellow Europeans but casting doubt on the status of the hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees moving up through Europe from Africa and the East.
Speaking at the opening of parliament in Copenhagen yesterday, Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen outlined how up until this point, integration had been allowed to utterly fail in Denmark. He told the chamber: “We need to speak openly about the fact that there is a difference between being a refugee and being an economic migrant. We can never cope with a mass migration that is borne upon the desire for a better life, regardless of how understandable that desire is”.
“Thus far, integration has failed. Of all the immigrants from non-Western countries, not even a half are employed. Even though many have been here for 10, 20 or 30 years. It is deeply worrying”. reports the Danish PM also used his speech to announce a new referendum, giving Danes a say on whether the nation signs up to the European Union’s common asylum and immigration policies. Up until now the nation has opted out of compulsory resettlement of refugees, and the announcement is an attempt by the right-wing government to put the matter to bed permanently.
The policy document put out by the Ministry for Immigration, Integration and Housing sets out a number of further areas where the government will be tightening up controls. One of the most significant changes will be to family reunification rules, which allow a single migrant, once settled to apply to have the rest of their family join them – receiving automatic citizenships in the process. Many European nations have such legislation, including Sweden and Germany, which has led to accusations that families abroad send the most vulnerable, and consequently likely to receive asylum, member to Europe as a sort of grappling hook.
The new rules will mean foreigners whose families are less likely to be able to integrate into Danish society will be less likely to receive family reunifications, while foreigners from compatible backgrounds will be fast-tracked.
Proposals to row back on changes made by the last government to make the giving of Danish citizenship to the children of foreigners born in Denmark easier have also been made. The practice of migrant parents giving birth in their new country and using the citizenship of their child as a pretence to stay has given the rise of the label ‘anchor babies‘ in the United States.
Some other moves have already been announced. Breitbart London reported yesterday the Danish plan to expand treason laws to encompass citizens who travelled abroad to fight Jihad.
While the right-wing coalition that now rules Denmark only recently won a convincing victory at the national elections, the left-wing opposition is determined to fight the changes, and last night held a march through Copenhagen to demand “decent treatment of refugees”. reports upwards of 20,000 attended the event, with torch-bearing protestors shouting well-worn slogans such as “say it loud and say it clear, refugees are welcome here”.
The protesters will have a lot to complain about. Hardline immigration and integration minister Inger Støjberg has already cut benefits for migrants, replacing unemployment payments with much lower integration benefits, the payments for which are dependent on migrants learning Danish.

Criticism Of Merkel’s Mass Migration Policy Builds At Home

by Simon Kent 

One by one German Chancellor Angela’s Merkel’s political allies are questioning her touch. Ever since she announced to a startled world in mid-September that Germany would take anywhere up to 800,000 refugees from war-torn Syria and Iraq, Merkel seemed to rise above any criticism of the decision. That tide is beginning to turn and Merkel’s problems are building at home. Breitbart London today reports that her popularity in the polls is dropping as “German UKIP” is rising.
It doesn’t end there.
Wolfgang Schäuble, Merkel’s finance minister, said in an interview with broadcaster ZDF on Sunday that Europe needed to restrict the number of people coming to the continent. “We need to limit the influx to Europe,” he said. “We can’t manage this task at a national level anymore.”
“The EU will do that very quickly now, above all with Turkey,” Schäuble added.
Lorenz Caffier, of Merkel’s own Christian Democrat Union (CDU), added his voice when he claimed that as many as 1.5 million refugees could arrive in Germany by the end of this year. He told the “Welt am Sonntag” newspaper that many of the federal states were “at their limit.”
The political statements came as right-wing activists with the PEGIDA group gathered to form what they called a “living border” against refugees coming into Germany. Merkel’s critics attracted 2,500 people in the town of Sebnitz, on the border with the Czech Republic.
Thirty-six senior CDU officials today published an open letter to the chancellor that outlined their concerns about a German open door migration policy. It began:
‘Dear Madam Chancellor,
‘we turn to you with great concern about the future of our country and Europe. We are currently witnessing an uncontrolled influx of several thousand refugees a day to Germany. Many more thousands are refugees on various routes along the way in our country…
‘…  The absorption capacity of Germany, however, is stretched to the limits and exhausted in many places. Nevertheless, it can be expected in the coming weeks and months a further large influx of refugees will arrive.’
The letter concluded with the observation that many Germany’s core values ‘still need to be communicated to the migrants’ such as the democratic rule of law, including freedom of expression, which includes freedom to criticize religions, equal and peaceful coexistence of religions, gender equality, non-discrimination of sexual minorities or the destruction of Israel.
The signatories demanded clear measures be taken to reduce the refugee numbers and impact.
All this from her own party members as she tries desperately to claw back control of the political dynamic in Germany.
This afternoon Merkel took one step in that direction when she named her chief of staff to coordinate refugee policy. Peter Altmaier will oversee a newly created staff unit at the chancellery and will work closely with Germany’s 16 regional governments. He will report to the cabinet every week.
That staff shuffle may be too little, too late to stave off what is a becoming Merkel’s nightmare on migrant street.

"Refugee crisis becomes a matter for the boss" beneath a picture of Hitler in a German newspaper
The German newspaper Tagesspiegel (daily mirror) posted an article about Merkel's recent steps in the refugee crisis with the title "Flüchtlingskrise wird Chefsache" ("Refugee crisis becomes a matter for the boss") right under a picture of an actor playing Hitler in the new movie "Er ist wieder da" ("He's back again"), promoting an article on page 9-21 about the satire (which has Hitler set in the modern world, struggling to understand technology and living a normal life while trying for a different kind of world domination).
After pictures of this crappy design choice went viral, they themselves tweeted the posted picture with the comment "Woops, didn't pay proper attention. We're sorry! #wronglayout".

Merkel’s Muslim Mufti Aired As Nation Rejects Idea That ‘Islam Belongs to Germany’

 Merkel Islam
by Oliver Lane 

 A photo-montage of Chancellor Merkel’s face with a traditional Iranian garment, the Reichstag building and Islamic minarets imposed has led to accusations that the national public service station is broadcasting right-wing propaganda.
Merkel Scarf Leipzig
Placards at a PEGIDA protest in Leipzig earlier this year / Oliver Lane / Breitbart London

Broadcast in the regular Sunday slot, ARD’s Report From Berlin was offering coverage of the debate in Germany surrounding the migrant crisis, and illustrated the segment with a shifty-looking Merkel dressed in the Islamic chadah veil. Although the image was of the station’s own creation, critics have pointed out its similarity to images used by the counter-Islamisation group PEGIDA, which has been circulating for at least one year.
One such example as seen at a PEGIDA protest in January by Breitbart London showed the Reichstag building with an Islamic crescent atop the roof and the caption “Mother of Multiculturalism – Merkel’s Migration Politics”.
Reaction to the broadcast was immedaite – MOPO24 reports that while some found the doctored image “realistic and striking”, others complained, calling it “grotesque”, “absolutely pathetic”, and a “scandal”. The station later issued a clarification on it’s Facebook page, remarking that the image was used in support of a segment praising the achievements of Western society, in particular freedom of expression and the freedom of the press.
They said the intention of the graphic was to raise awareness of the debate over multiculturalism in German society and to polarize views.
In any case, the polarization of German views on multiculturalism appears to be already underway. Rejecting the cloying rhetoric deployed by Merkel during her opposition to the PEGIDA movement in January when she said “Islam Belongs to Germany”, a new survey suggests the majority of Germans no longer agree. reported the findings this morning, which found two-thirds of Germans disagreed with the statement. Only 22 per cent agreed with the Chancellor’s statement nine months later.
This revelation about the state of sentiment among the German people comes in the same week as another major poll which found four-fifths of Germans wanted to reintroduce border controls. An unprecedented 90 per cent said they wanted to limit the number of refugees Germany could accept a year, and the majority of citizens now report being “scared” of refugees.

WATCH: Farage Blasts Hollande, Merkel on ‘Stampede’ of ‘Aggressive, Male, Economic Migrants’

by Raheem Kassam

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has blasted the German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the French President Francois Hollande in the European Parliamentary chamber in Strasbourg today, following their guest speeches in which they urged “more Europe” and further European Union (EU) integration.
Mrs. Merkel and Mr. Hollande both used their speeches to defend their countries’ records on the ongoing migrant crisis, which was met with cheers from pro-EU types in the chamber, but derision from those such as UKIP leader Nigel Farage, Front National leader Marine Le Pen, and even David Cameron’s European ally, ECR Vice President Ryszard Antoni Legutko.
Mr Farage started his speech by acknowledging that European integration to limit Germany’s powers after the Second World War was understandable, but said “sadly the whole thing has been corrupted”.
“The EU is no longer about peace, it is about power,” he said, quoting former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who originally made the statement in 2014.
And he slapped down President Hollande, noting that “the French voice in this relationship is little more now than a pipsqueak” before turning to the big topic of the day: the European migrant crisis.
Mr Farage described Mrs Merkel’s policy of accepting up to 1.5 million migrants as “the worst piece of public policy in half a century”, echoing comments that Mrs. Merkel has been receiving from inside her own party as of late.
He, perhaps controversially, referred to the migration wave as “a stampede” and noted, as reported by Breitbart London, that “80 per cent [of those coming] are not Syrian refugees… in fact what you’ve done is open the door to young, male, economic migrants… [who] behave in an aggressive manner… the opposite of what you’d expect from a refugee”.
“This isn’t a Europe of peace, it’s a Europe of division,” he claimed, lampooning the pair for attending the European Parliament, and declaring that “Europe isn’t working so we must have more Europe… more of the same failings”.
And then he got onto Britain’s European Referendum.
“There is a bright star on the horizon,” he commented. “It’s called a British European referendum” and said that Mrs. Merkel and Mr. Hollande’s policies made “a Brexit now [look] more likely”.
“I hope that Britain leaving the European Union will be the beginning of end [for the EU]“ he concluded.
Mr. Hollande agreed that if Britain wanted to leave Europe, it should leave.
European President Martin Schulz concluded the meeting by asserting that those who tried to take the EU down from within had today “learned a lesson in democracy”. It is not clear what was democratic about German and French leaders reporting in to unelected bureaucrats in Strasbourg.

‘German Ukip’ Climbs In Polls As Migrant Crisis Bites 

by Donna Rachel Edmunds 

The right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party is again rising in the polls thanks to its rhetoric on controlled immigration. A poll conducted last Sunday put the party on seven per cent nationally, high enough to secure it seats in the Bundestag. Regionally, the party hit highs of 12 per cent. Despite the party’s gains it still trails the more established parties significantly. The poll, by Forza for Stern magazine, saw the ruling CDU/CSU Christian union slip one point to 39 per cent, just two per cent lower than their tally in the 2013 general election. The union is made up of the Christian Social Union in Bavaria (CSU) which is active only in Bavaria, and the Christian Democratic Union of Germany (CDU), which operates in Germany’s 15 other states. Both share a youth wing.
Germany’s oldest political party, the Social Democrat Party (SPD), is still in second place, gaining a point to rise to 25 per cent, while the Greens and the Left shed one point each, now both polling at 9 per cent.
However, the number of undecideds and non-voters is now at 33 per cent, a significant increase on the general election when 28.5 per cent of the population failed to turn up at the polls.
“At 39 per cent, the Union is 2.5 percentage points below its result in the general election two years ago,” said Forsa chief Manfred Güllner.”But while the CDU has dropped 1.6 percentage points in former West Germany, their share in East Germany has dropped more than twice that – namely, 3.5 per cent”
Its sister party, the SCU has fared even worse, falling 5.3 per cent in their Bavarian stronghold. Most of that support was lost to the AfD, thanks to “the attacks of the Prime Minister [of Bavaria] Horst Seehofer against Chancellor [Merkel],” said Güllner, “Floating voters on the right of the CSU to a large extent have switched allegiance to the AfD. Their 2013 parliamentary elections result has been improved upon by 4.7 points to 9 per cent.” In East Germany, the AfD saw their best result, reaching 12 per cent.
An election to the Bavarian parliament would currently see Seehofer retain the leadership, albeit with a diminished majority; likewise the SPD could also expect to be the second largest party with a slight reduction in seats. The AfD polled fourth, but on six per cent they would now secure seats in the parliament for the first time.
Perhaps the most dramatic result is the loss of support for the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel. Her approval ratings have dropped a massive nine per cent over the last ten weeks, as Germany has been thrown into chaos thanks to a huge migrant influx.
“However, her position remains relatively strong,” said Güllner, pointing out that, on 47 per cent, she is still enjoying significantly more popularity than her predecessor Helmut Kohl did in his 16 year chancellorship.

Israel’s Enemies sign the Death Sentence of the Last Christians

by Giulio Meotti 

The State of Israel and its citizens are fighting for their own right to life everywhere, in Jerusalem as in Judea and Samaria. Muslim terrorists are slaying Jews in their own cars, streets and houses. But the “free world” pays no attention to Jewish blood spilled with impunity.
Another tragedy is unfolding in the civilized world, a world which is also turning its head away while Christians are being killed in the Middle East. According to the NGO Open Doors, in 2014 there were 4,344 Christians killed because they are Christians. That, so far, was the year with the highest level of global persecution of Christians in the modern era. 2015 will probably be even worse.
A report by the liberal Center for American Progress says that most of the Christian communities of the Middle East are going to disappear. Churches will become museums, rather than places of worship, or will be converted to Islamic mosques.
Christians were 95 percent of the population in the Middle East in the VII century, 20 percent in 1945, down to 6 percent today and they are expected to halve in 2020. “Will there still be Christians in the Middle East in the third millennium?”, asked the French diplomat Jean-Pierre Valognes in the book “Vie et mort des chrétiens d’Orient”. The answer is no.
The much vaunted heterogeneity of the Middle East is shrinking to the monotony of a single religion, Islam, and a handful of languages ​​and haggard Christian communities.
Rabbi Jacob Neusner, who had a dialogue on Judaism with former Pope Benedict XVI, told me that not only did the world close its eyes to this apocalyptic Christians’ persecution, but even most of the Christian leaders in the West are guilty of deliberately keeping silent about the massacres and harassment of entire Christian communities.
The Israeli ambassador to the UN, Ron Prosor, compared the expulsion of masses of Christians from Arab countries to that of 800,000 Jews from Arab countries in 1948. That was the end of Judaism on Islamic soil. Ron Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress, wrote that “the ‘N’ of Christians in Mosul is like the yellow Star of David that the Nazis forced Jews to wear”.
From Tripoli to Damascus, Christians are disappearing while Israel has been an oasis for all the minorities now being massacred by Islamists: the Bahais who fled the Iranian ayatollahs, the Druze, the Yazidi and the Christians. In this region abandoned to a ferocity with no boundaries, Israel is the only country, in a span of thousands of kilometers that goes from Marrakech to Tehran, where the Christian community not only does not suffer, but even grows.
Christians should see Israel as the first line of of non-Islamic survival worldwide. Those who want to destroy the Jewish State in the West are also signing the death sentence of the last free Christians in the Middle East.

Study: Violence In German Migrant Centres Part Of ‘Everyday Life

by Liam Deacon 

The first comprehensive social and scientific study on violence in migrant centres in Germany has revealed that conflict is part of “everyday life” for inhabitants and is likely to increase. The “ultimate and primary cause” was ethnic and religious tensions, researchers said. Researcher also identified widespread drug and alcohol use as contributing to domestic violence, which was identified in every facility investigated.
“Violent behaviour and aggressive verbal confrontations, threats or insults and serious damage to property were very commonly reported, indicating they are part of everyday life in the hired accommodation,” wrote researchers, who interviewed home managers, employees and randomly selected residents in almost all collective accommodation in Brandenburg.
The research, commissioned by Brandenburg Ministry of Interior, warned that the likelihood of altercations increasing in number and frequency is very high. This is due, they said, to the rapidly growing occupancy density of the homes and the fact that migrants have little employment opportunities and are increasingly diverse in their regions and ethnic origin.
In all homes investigated by the study there had been domestic violence, too. Often alcohol and drug use had acted as a “conflict accelerator,” researchers said.
Since 2010, Saxony police investigated a total of 1630 crimes in migrant centres, and in the first six-month of this year alone there were ten killings in Saxony migrant homes. The data gathered by Germany language paper Die Welt counted 164 severe incidences of serious bodily harm between January and June and 184 “lesser” bodily harm, which bizarrely included rapes.
Just yesterday, in a single day, around three hundred migrants brawled in a migrant centre in Braunschweig; Algerians fought Syrians in violence purportedly sparked by a theft. There was also a brawl in Hamburg where iron bars were used as weapons, and a rapid police response only narrowly averted another mass brawl in Oisterwijk.
When asked about the causation of the brawls, almost all the residents and carers interviewed traced them back to a lack of understanding or tolerance for cultural difference. “Again and again what was named was hatred between different nationalities or religions as the ultimate cause,” the researchers write.
Harald Olschok, chief executive of the Federation of Security Management, who provide security services to migrant centres, told Die Welt: “A particularly high potential for conflict arises in close occupation of mainly young men from different countries and different religions.”

Thousands of migrants to be deported under secret EU plans amid radical Brussels crackdown

The European Union is secretly planning to deport hundreds of thousands of failed asylum seekers within weeks, according to reports.Under the proposals, Brussels will threaten to withdraw aid, trade deals and visa arrangements if countries refuse to take back their economic migrants. The asylum claims of more than 400,00 seekers who entered the EU in the first half of the year are likely to be rejected, posing a problem for EU leaders. Ministers from member states, including Theresa May, will discuss a text warning countries they must send more migrants home.It reads: "Increased return rates should act as a deterrent to irregular migration." Migrants fleeing war-torn countries like Syria, Afghanistan and Libya could be among those deported if their asylum bids fail. Home Secretary Ms May is expected to back the plan if it raises the changes of Calais migrant camps being cleared - despite Britain not being a Schengen country. She called yesterday for new deportation system to be able to return failed asylum seekers who do not have their own passports with them.The plan marks a tipping point for EU leaders who have been divided over how to handle the biggest exodus of migrants since the Second World War. Under the proposals, a specialist unit of the EU border agency - called Frontex - will be created to assist with deportation. Member states that do not abide by the rules and deport "irregular migrants" will face legal action and fines from the European Commission.The document says: "Member states must systematically issue return decisions, take all necessary steps to enforce them and provide adequate resources, necessary for identifying and returning illegally staying third-country nationals. "While member states are primarily responsible for carrying out returns, the immediate creation of a dedicated return office within Frontex should enable it to scale-up its support to facilitate, organise and fund return operations."It came to light after immigration dominated the agenda at the Conservative Party conference, with the demanding Home Secretary unveiling a reform on the UK's asylum rules. She pledged to reduce the numbers claiming in Britain while taking in the "most vulnerable" refugees from conflict zones around the world, claiming that high migration made a "cohesive society" impossible.

German Authorities Accused Of Playing Down Refugee Shelter Sex Crime Reports

Germany’s police union and women’s rights groups accused the authorities on Tuesday of playing down reports of harassment, sexual assault and even rape at refugee shelters because they feared a backlash against asylum seekers. Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere called on Germans to avoid succumbing to a blanket suspicion of the hundreds of thousands of migrants arriving in the country, saying an unbelievable number of rumors were being spread on the Internet.
But police union chief Rainer Wendt said he believed that authorities in Germany’s federal states, which are responsible for housing asylum seekers, were playing down the problem of assaults on women in the shelters.
“It is understandable that there is the desire to calm things down politically,” Wendt told Reuters. But he, along with women’s groups, believed that ignoring the problem would be counterproductive. “There is a lot of glossing over going on. But this doesn’t represent reality,” he said.
With public opinion hardening on the refugee influx, German authorities appear anxious to avoid giving extreme-right groups any opportunity to stir up hostility towards migrants, many of whom are Muslims including those fleeing the Syrian civil war.
“There are an unbelievable number of rumors regarding this issue, which are being spread massively over social networks,” De Maiziere told a news conference.
“The federal authorities are investigating these resolutely and often the rumors are not true,” he said. “There are things worthy of criticism. But there is no reason for a general suspicion of refugees.”
No comprehensive official figures are available on the extent of the problem at the shelters, which local authorities are setting to provide temporary accommodation around the country in places such as sports halls and empty office blocks.
But Wendt said the police were reporting cases to the state governments, which have their own interior ministers. These people should take note, he said: “The interior ministers would be well advised to have a look at their own reports to know what actually happens on our streets at night and in the shelters.”
Wendt said that a high number of cases went unreported as women rarely dared to file complaints with police or public prosecutors.
This is a general problem with sex crime, regardless of the community where it is committed, due to the victims’ feelings of fear and shame.
However, Barbara Helfrich of the charity Paritaetischer Bund in the central state of Hesse, said some women had come forward. “We have several trustworthy reports on sexual violence and assaults from victims, as well as advisory groups and NGOs,” she told Reuters.
In a recent open letter, several charities alleged crimes had been committed a city shelter in the state. “There are several cases of rape and sexual assault and increasingly even reports on forced prostitution,” the joint letter said, adding that these were not isolated incidents.
With men accounting for about 70 percent of asylum seekers, other groups across the country have demanded gender-segregated accommodation and safe zones for women.
At least 800,000 asylum seekers are expected in Germany this year, and Chancellor Angela Merkel’s popularity has fallen with polls showing many voters believe she is taking too soft a line on allowing them into the country.
The northern city of Hamburg recently confirmed eight cases of sexual assault in refugee shelters this year.
Tuelin Akkoc, spokeswomen for refugee affairs with the opposition Green Party in Hamburg, accepted that far-right groups might use such reports to turn sentiment against migrants. But she told Reuters: “That’s no reason to sweep this issue under the carpet. Right now is the time for the authorities to raise their voices in order to prevent extremist groups from dominating the debate.”

Radicalised Muslim Prisoner On The Run Since May Shoots Policeman

by Sarkis Zeronian 

A radicalised Muslim prisoner on the run since failing to return from day release in May has shot and critically injured a French policeman. Police union anger towards the French Minister of Justice, Christiane Taubira, mounted when it transpired that the fugitive gunman was a prison inmate granted temporary leave back in May, reports The Local. The Alliance union said she “must be held accountable because the fact our colleague is fighting for his life could have been avoided.”
The 36-year-old policeman was shot in the face and neck during a prolonged gunfight. The shootout followed a jewellery store robbery and subsequent car chase in Ile-Saint-Denis, a northern suburb of Paris, which ended when the robbers became stuck in traffic.
The policeman’s condition is described as “desperate”. One of the gunmen died at the scene and the other surrendered.
The incident has brought the efficiency of French security and justice systems into question, reports International Business Times. The dead robber had been on the run since exploiting a temporary licence granted to him in May despite his long criminal record.
Even more alarmingly the 24-year-old had ties to Islamic extremists and was the subject of a ‘fiche S’, meaning anti-terrorism officers believed him to be a potential threat having been radicalised in prison.
In a statement the Alliance union said Minister Taubira was responsible for their colleague’s injuries:
“It is morally inconceivable that such a dangerous individual can be let out on permit. The police are waiting for an explanation from the Minister of Justice because she owes one to us, the police, and especially to his [the injured officer’s] family.”
The matter is particularly controversial as it comes just one week after another radical Islamist went on the run following temporary leave from a French prison sentence.
As Breitbart London previously reported, before his disappearance he told fellow inmates they “will soon be hearing about [him]”.

Poll: Four-Fifths Of Germans Want Return Of Border Controls

by Oliver Lane 

Three-quarters of Germans believe refugees should stay in the first safe country they reach while four-fifths think the nation should re-instate border controls, in a strong rejection of Chancellor Merkel’s open-door policy on immigration.
A new opinion poll has revealed the state of German opinion over the migrant crisis, which is very distinctive in some regards but quite conflicted in others. While respondents responded well to the suggestion of border controls, two-thirds still agreed with the statement ‘Germany is a Nation of Migration’, suggesting many were still happy to take refugees – but only genuine ones.
This hardening attitude towards migrants from Syria may have been shaped by revelations by top German police officers that since Merkel’s open-arms welcome to Syrians, every refugee coming to the country was claiming to be one – even if they were clearly not of Syrian heritage, as reported by Breitbart London.
The research, conducted by the German Initiative Markt-und Sozialforschung found strong regional differentiation in the results, with people in former East Germany being significantly less likely to describe the demographic change wrought by an influx of refugees “welcome”. In the west of the nation, 51 per cent agreed with the notion, and women were even more likely to welcome the change, at 54 per cent.
In all parts of Germany people were opposed to allowing the arrival of migrants unregistered from Hungary by way of Austria, but again there were regional variations. Those in the East were most opposed (69 per cent), while in the southern states where the majority of refugees actually arrive was as low as 55 per cent, still a majority against the arrivals.
The east German state of Saxony is the key area for resistance to federal refugee policy, with state capital Dresden home to the anti-migration and Islamisation movement PEGIDA.
On the most fundamental matters of mass migration, however, the figures were significantly more clear. A significant 90 per cent of Germans believe there should be a limit on the number of ‘refugees’ the nation should take a year, in contrast to present government policy which has seen the estimated number of arrivals shoot up from 300,000 to 1.5 million in just five months, which scant efforts to stem the flow.
This latest poll comes hot on the heels of another piece of research released last week, which revealed the majority of Germans were now “scared” by refugees.
Strangely, despite being at odds with the positon of their own government, the actions of Chancellor Merkel have hardly affected her popularity ratings. Although a new poll last month found the German leader to be at her lowest ebb this year, as reported by Breitbart London, she has hardly taken a beating, finding herself only three points down and still at 49 per cent. The figure still puts her well ahead of any other figure in German politics.
Despite the split emerging between the two parties supporting Merkel’s government, the ideologically similar Christian Democratic and Christian Socialist Unions, they remain the most popular in the nation, trailing the Social Democrats by 15-points.

Anti-Semitic Migrants Strengthening Intolerance Concerns For German Jews

by Sarkis Zeronian 

 Migrants from countries hostile to Israel may strengthen anti-Semitism in Europe, the leader of Germany’s Jewish community has warned. The President of the Central Council of Jews in Germany (CCJG) warned Chancellor Angela Merkel of the issue in person during a recent meeting that also involved other religious communities and trade unions. Josef Schuster’s remarks were met by an “awkward silence”, he told German newspaper Welt am Sonntag, which Merkel noted saying: “We must deal with that.”
“Among those seeking asylum in Germany, a large number come from countries in which they hear about Israel the bogeyman. They have grown up with this hostility to Israel and often transfer their resentment to Jews in general,” Schuster explained.
As a result, Jewish communities now fear the rise of “Arabic anti-Semitism” in Germany. At the same time Schuster and others in the CCJG support Merkel’s ‘open-door’ policy, despite their professed view that a rejection of all forms of anti-Semitism and solidarity with Israel are basic tenets of the German Federal Republic.
Interviewed in the German Jewish newspaper Jüdische Allgemeine, Schuster spoke of his support for efforts to integrate migrants. Referring to the recent Arabic translation of the German constitution, previously reported by Breitbart London, he thought it a good start for wider integration moves describing it as “a symbolic gesture that certainly does no harm.” He continued:
“For successful integration, it takes a lot more, especially many sustainable measures. German language skills, education, training, social integration through clubs, jobs – all this contributes significantly to refugees getting to know our basic values ​​and laws. You should not deny their origins or cast all their traditions overboard. But they must recognise our constitution. If the Basic Law in Arabic is the first step – why not?”
Schuster said that anti-Israel demonstrations during the Gaza conflict of summer 2014 (picture above, in Berlin) show where the unchecked sentiment can lead, saying Jewish communities are concerned anti-Semitic riots are now more likely.
He said he shares that concern, but rather than questioning Angela Merkel’s open door invitation to Syrian migration the answer for Schuster is to “integrate refugees into [the German] community of values as fast and as hard as possible.”

HUNDREDS of Leftists March in Frankfurt for Open Borders: “No More Germany, Germany Is Sh*T!” (Video)

Around 1,000 left wing extremists marched through Frankfurt on Friday to protest the official festivities for the 25th anniversary of the re-unification of Germany.
The leftists carried hateful banners calling for open borders and the end of Germany.
no borders germany
Germany is expected to accept 750,000 Middle East migrants this year.
So the end of Germany may just around the corner.


‘Muslim Merkel’ prompts anger in Germany

A provocative image of Angela Merkel wearing a chador in front of minarets rising from the Bundestag has provoked complaints to a German TV station as tensions rise over the influx of migrants to the country.
The “Merka” photo-montage was made by the Report from Berlin programme on the public service broadcaster ARD as the backdrop for a debate on whether there should be quotas for refugees.

Brussels fat cat who has TWO chauffeurs blasted for wasting THOUSANDS in taxpayers' cash

THE head of the European Union Parliament has been slammed by fellow MEPs for wasting taxpayers' cash.Germany's Martin Schulz – who receives up to a massive £227,000-a-year in salary and allowances alone – has two luxury limousines, two chauffeurs and a staggering 35 assistants, according to a report filed by Parliament members. They claimed the socialist politician - who has called member states to make higher financial contributions - was setting a "bad example". The annual review of the Parliament's finances said it "notes with concern that the large number of staff based in the office of the president of the European Parliament is highly questionable".The 59-year-old has been an MEP for 21 years. His excessive staff team boasts of five press officers, a spokesman, two diary assistants and even two ushers dressed in black tails to greet guests - which is believed to cost the taxpayer more than £1million. The report said: "This sets a bad example for cost reduction and fiscal responsibility within Parliament."Eurosceptics were outraged by the revelation – with Ukip leader Nigel Farage blasting Mr Schulz over the revelation. Mr Farage said: "The Queen of Sheba probably had less staff, certainly less chauffeurs. "I can't decide if Martin Schulz is a Bollinger Bolshevik or a Foie Gras Federalist. "What this report shows is that the president of the European Parliament is greedy for EU gravy. He loves the EU because it's good for him personally."But one of Mr Schulz defended the serial spending, blaming EU driving laws for the leader's need for two chauffeurs. He said: "Two drivers are needed to meet the high mobility requirements of the president which would not be possible with one driver while at the same time following legislation on rest time. "Two cars are needed because there are many times when the president travels one part of a journey by car, then takes a plane or train, and then still needs a car when he arrives at his destination. "If we had only one car, then Parliament would need to hire a car for the second part of this mission." The press officer claimed the politician employed fewer staff than his two predecessors.It comes just a month after it was revealed that EU bureaucrats put a staggering £85million on credit cards issued to pay for meals and hotels in just one year. Around 13,000 EU employees were given the credit cards – meaning they spent an average of £6,000 each in 2013. The majority of cardholders were based in Belgium but 143 UK-based officials spent £36,000 – or £250 each.The cards are linked to the bureaucrats' own bank accounts, meaning they can make personal purchases as well. They then apply to the European Commission for money to pay off the credit card bill. But EU sources refused to disclose how much of the £85.9million was claimed back in expenses – because it would involve "lengthy and costly" research.

‘No Borders’ Activist Gang Raped By Migrants, Pressured Into Silence To Not ‘Damage Cause’

by Liam Deacon 

A young woman and ‘No Borders’ activist working in a migrant camp on the France-Italy border remained silent about her gang rape by Sudanese migrants for over a month because “the others asked me to keep quiet.” Colleagues allegedly said that reporting the crime would set back their struggle for a borderless world.
The ‘No Borders’ activist had dedicated a month of her life to helping migrants. Her group was stationed between Italy and France in Ponte San Ludovico in Ventimiglia when the atrocity occurred, according to reports from local papers La Stampa and Il Secolo XIX, and now reported in the major Italian national Corriere.
One Saturday night, as loud music played at a nearby party, the woman was trapped in a shower block set up near the camp in a pine forest know as Red Leap. A gang of African migrants raped her there. Her cries for help went unheard because of the music, according to Italian papers.
La Stampa reports that the woman would have reported the horrific crime were if not for her fellow hard-left activists, who convinced her that if the truth got out it could damage their utopian dream of a world without borders.
Some doubts have been thrown on the case because of the emergence of conflicting accounts. Corriere reports that some of her fellow activists have accused the woman of reporting the rape out of “spite,” because her group was withdrawn from the camp following a separate controversy.
The town of Ventimiglia, where the alleged crime occurred, has been a flashpoint in the ongoing migrant crisis. On the 30th of September around 50 migrants and 20 activists were cleared from an illegal camp there. The activists organised a protest, whereby 250 migrants conducted a “sit in” on the shoreline.
Yesterday, Osman Suliman, 20, a Sudanese asylum seeker who had been in the UK for just five months, appeared in court. He was charged with the rape of a Nottingham woman last weekend, the 26th of September, The Nottingham Post reports.

German Anti-Islam Group Vents Fury At Merkel Over Refugee Welcome

Thousands of German anti-Islam protesters on Monday vented their fury at Chancellor Angela Merkel over her welcoming of refugees, accusing her of “high treason” and “crimes against the German people”. With Europe’s top economy expecting to take in up to a million people fleeing war and poverty this year, anger has flared among anti-foreigner groups and members of the anti-Islam PEGIDA movement (“Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident”).
“Merkel is guilty, commits ethnocide against the German people,” read one banner at the rally in Dresden, the historic city in the former communist East where PEGIDA emerged about a year ago and, after a lull, is now looking to swell its ranks.
Waving flags, the agitated crowd cheered on co-founder Lutz Bachmann, 42, who was charged last week with inciting racial hatred by labelling asylum-seekers “animals”, “trash” and “filthy rabble”.
“It won’t stop with 1.5 or two million” arrivals, he said.
“They will have their wives come, and one, two, three children. It is an impossible task to integrate these people.”
One banner portrayed Merkel in a Nazi uniform, but the swastika symbol was replaced by a euro sign.
“Islam is Europe’s suicide” said another which carried a picture of a woman veiled in an EU flag shooting herself in the head.
“Merkel has to go — we can do it!” they chanted, the second sentence an echo of Merkel’s can-do message on managing the migrant influx.
PEGIDA supporters also yelled “High treason is an offence”.
“When young healthy men leave a war zone to move to another country, you call them deserters, not refugees,” one female protester said, without giving her name.
Other placards read: “How many ISIS fighters among them 1.5 million?”, picking up a new estimate of arrivals for 2015 published by Bild daily.
- ‘We are the people’ -
PEGIDA emerged about a year ago, with initially several hundred people showing up for “Monday strolls” in Dresden, and swelled in following months, spawning clone groups in other German towns and cities.
At their peak, the xenophobic rallies attracted 25,000 marchers in Dresden, but also sparked far larger anti-fascist rallies in cities across Germany.
The movement fizzled early this year following bickering among the leadership and after Bachmann sparked an uproar with his anti-foreigner slurs and Facebook selfies showing him sporting a Hitler moustache and hair-do.
But the movement has again gained momentum as the influx of new arrivals has grown, drawing 10,000 to a march last week, media reports said. Police no longer provides crowd estimates.
“We are the people!” they yelled at Monday’s demonstration, co-opting the slogan used by pro-democracy protesters whose demonstrations preceded the fall of the Berlin Wall.
“I’m not a right-winger, but I’m scared,” said Frank, 59, one of the few protesters who agreed to speak to AFP, on condition he not be fully named.
“I think of my children and grandchildren,” he said, voicing fears about the “Islamisation” of his country.
“We fought for our freedom 25 years ago, we have to demonstrate again.
“I am OK with welcoming sick and wounded refugees, but in the TV images we can see young men. Those are economic refugees,” he added.
Uwe Friedrich, 46, said he had been with PEGIDA since the start, and wanted Muslims to leave the country. He was waving a sign that read: “We have a right to our German homeland and German culture.”
Another placard quoted Hungary’s hawkish Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who recently described the refugee influx as “a German problem” — raising the question: “Where are the life rafts for our children?”
Another, more ominous sign read: “Resistance has become a duty against our country’s destruction by Merkel & Co”.

Europe’s Rape Epidemic: Western Women Will Be Sacrificed At The Altar Of Mass Migration

by Anne-Marie Waters 

About 20 years ago I lived in the Netherlands. Amsterdam to be precise. I don’t know if it is still the same but finding decent affordable accommodation in Amsterdam is an onerous task – especially when you are on a budget, as I was. After some difficulty, I did find a fairly decent flat, but I left it, in the middle of the night, with my rucksack and all my possessions, because my landlord did not understand, nor did he want to accept, that I wasn’t interested in a sexual relationship with him. Fast forward eight months or so, and I am living in a new flat with a female friend of mine. Late one night, while my friend and I were sitting talking in her room, someone let himself in. He immediately decided to take his trousers off and walk in to the bedroom with a stupid “entitled” grin on his face. We left the flat, there and then, with our rucksacks and all our possessions. So, twice within a year I had to leave the place I lived because of nasty little men who thought they had every right to treat women as if we owe them sex.
In both cases, the landlords were Moroccan immigrants who had not long been living in Holland. On a separate occasion, a taxi driver drove past several times while I was walking with a friend in central Amsterdam. He threw a rather grim present out the window at us. It didn’t hit us.
Much more recently, I travelled from Copenhagen to Malmo by train. Only moments after the train entered Swedish territory, I was witness to what I can only assume to be representative of the new Sweden: a young blonde woman was jogging and had the misfortune of passing a group of men (I have been heavily criticised for describing them as “Middle Eastern-looking men” but that is what they were) who proceeded immediately to harass her – blocking her way, shouting, grabbing their genitals. Soon afterwards, in the centre of Malmo, I was treated to a “pro-Palestinian” rally which I have no doubt at all was attended by many a Jew-hating Islamist, as is common in the new Sweden.
Readers will be more than aware that Sweden has become Europe’s rape capital. Its government has blamed this on everything from increased reporting to the internet to the weather. Norway and Denmark also have some rather alarming rates of rape, but those countries are more readily willing to admit the cause. 
In Norway, recent statistics revealed that 100 per cent of violent street-rapes committed in the capital city of Oslo were committed by “non-western” immigrants.  It’s a similar story in Denmark, where the majority of rapes are committed by immigrants, usually Muslim.
In England, it’s been rape after rape – tens of thousands of young British girls are brutalised, tortured, beaten and raped by organised gangs comprised almost exclusively of Muslims. And now we have Germany. When Chancellor Merkel threw open the doors of her country to hundreds of thousands of migrants from the Middle East and Africa, she opened the door to the rape of German women.
Rape and sexual assault (as well as forced prostitution) is rampant within the refugee camps in Germany, and it has spilled out to the nearby towns. Rape in Germany has already been described as an “epidemic” and one that the German authorities, and media, are keeping rather quiet about. The reality is that German authorities, who know that many of these asylum seekers are rapists, will allow those men to live freely among German women – they have decided to allow German women to be raped, just like authorities all across Europe.
Women of Europe must understand what is happening here. This is not Page Three, or a Carry On film sexist joke (for the record, I wouldn’t be without my Carry On collection); this is a truly brutal hatred of women that demands we are slaves and absolutely believes it has the right to rape women who don’t submit. The men think of women this way because that is where they come from, that is what they know. 
Reports reveal that the bulk of “asylum seekers” now piling in to Europe are from countries including Pakistan, Somalia, Afghanistan, and other places where women are treated appallingly as a matter of course. It’s not the “extreme fringe” or a “tiny minority”; it is the norm, the mainstream, and the law of the land.
It’s true, women are abused everywhere, but in most countries it’s against the law. In Islamic states, it is the law. 
Many of the men on their way to Europe were raised, as in Pakistan, to believe that a woman who isn’t all-but invisible is asking to be raped. On the legal books in Pakistan, a woman can be stoned to death for being a victim of rape. What on earth do we expect from the bulk of men who grow up under these rules? How will they view women, and rape? And what on earth do we expect to happen when they come en masse to Europe? They will suddenly become feminists en route? No, they bring this misogyny with them, and it’s a misogyny that Europe’s women are about to become very familiar with. Migrants leave behind many things when they leave their country. Their beliefs are not among them.
In a letter to the German government, women’s rights activists described how some men in refugee camps “regard women as their inferior and treat unaccompanied women as “fair game”.
Our leaders are now allowing men from violent misogynistic cultures, where women are stoned to death for being raped, to come to Europe in massive numbers. They’re allowing known rapists to mingle freely with European women. They know what this will mean for our safety, but they do it anyway. A Swedish lawyer recently explained exactly why this is.
Following the brutal rape of a dying woman in Stockholm, the prosecution did not attempt to deport the rapist and claimed that this Somali citizen could not be removed because he would present a danger to the women of his home country. It mattered not a jot the danger he presented to Swedish women, because in the new Europe, Europeans matter far less than migrants. Ingrid Carlqvist wrote recently: “the destitute Swedish senior citizen must choose between paying 100,000 kronor ($12,000) to get new teeth or living toothless, a person who does not even have the right to stay in Sweden can get his teeth fixed for 50 kronor ($6)”. In Germany, property has been confiscated from German citizens to be handed over to migrants. According to Carlqvist, this is on the cards in Sweden as well.
In response to the rape epidemic, European authorities have decided to follow the Islamic way entirely; they’ve decided to place restrictions on the freedoms of their own women, rather than the freedoms of known rapists. In Germany, women were advised not to travel to and from the train station unaccompanied.
So there you have it, the removal of a woman’s most basic freedom – the freedom to go about her business in safety – is the German authorities’ solution to rape. Young girls have been told not to wear shorts in another German town, because this might lead to misunderstandings (“misunderstanding” is Newspeak for rape in progressive modern Germany).
So it is the girls who have their freedoms removed, and the emphasis is placed on their behaviour, while rapists are permitted to run free. This is only the start. Will girls be prevented from playing sports to avoid “misunderstandings”? Just how much freedom are our leaders going to give away to appease Muslim men? We’ve already handed over free speech, now it’s time to hand over women’s freedom.
It should come as no surprise that free speech has disappeared in Europe as the Muslim population has grown. 
We know about the shootings, and the stabbings, the politicians on the run, and the forbidden cartoons, but now Angela Merkel wants to prevent us from expressing any negative view of her suicidal immigration policy. We found out recently that the Chancellor has had a quiet word in the ear of Mark Zuckerberg about keeping that dreadful racist disapproval far away from the pages of Facebook.
You’ve got to wonder – why on earth would Europe’s leaders do this to their own people? What is causing this? 
Some have told me it is stupidity, short-sightedness, or even insanity, but it isn’t – it’s hatred. 
This is all part of a broad-ranging, virulent, and vicious hatred of the West, and of Western people (especially white Western people). 
The Western world is dominated by leaders who despise its history and its heritage and are determined to bring an end to its power.  They wish to extinguish Western culture, and opening the borders is a hell of a good start.
Merkel recognised that she was changing Germany beyond all recognition and that the Germany we know today will not exist for much longer. Much worse is that she considers this a positive thing. What does that tell us about her attitude towards the country she leads?  The same can be said for the Swedes, who have leaders who praise the way of life of immigrants (regardless of the misogyny etc.), while telling native Swedes that they don’t even have a way of life.
The West is being disarmed – to demolish our cultures, our leaders are persuading us that there is nothing within them that is worthy of defence. Our identity is expendable.
Examples of attacks on European or Western identity are too numerous to mention. 
There is also vast inconsistency with regard to national or ethnic identity. Just look at the difference in how the Left – which is behind all of this – views nationalism. Scottish nationalism here in Britain is applauded by the Left, as is Welsh and Irish, but English nationalism – however mild – must be suffocated at birth (even flying the English flag can be controversial in England).  Thus we know that the Left is not against national identity per se, just when the big Western powers are involved.
Jamaica recently demanded that the British pay them billions of pounds in compensation for slavery. But what about slavery today? Why not focus on that? Furthermore, why just the West? Why not hold to account the Islamic countries which also traded in slaves for centuries (and some still do today)? What about the black Africans who colluded in the Atlantic slave trade, selling off their own people? Will Jamaica be claiming reparation from them? No, because this isn’t about slavery at all, it’s about attacking Western powers, for which they’ll get an enormous helping hand from the Left.
The biggest problem we’ve got is that our leaders are of the same bent, and believe that the West, and only the West, deserves to be perpetually punished for its past crimes.
In stark contrast to today’s culturally suicidal politicians, I believe strongly that the Swedish government, the German government, and the British government ought to unequivocally and without reluctance put the best interests of their own people first – that means keeping rapists out, as well as refusing entry to those who violently threaten our right to speak. This isn’t because I think Westerners are entitled to more protection than other people. Contrary to what my enemies would love to believe, I do actually care about women in the most misogynistic countries in the world, but we do nothing to advance the cause of women’s rights globally by destroying the rights of Western women – quite the opposite in fact.
The reason a government ought to put its own people first gets right to the heart of nation-state democracy; the duty owed by the elected to the elector. Politicians should answer to those who elect them – it is the purpose of the vote. This is something the Left rejects of course because it rejects the freedom (specifically the market freedom) that nation-state democracy inevitably constructs, and sadly the Left is now calling the shots.
Make no mistake, Westerners are about to be made to suffer, and the reason is that our leaders fully believe that we deserve to.    

Was the Oregon mass shooting an Islamist attempt to assassinate Alek Skarlatos?

By Matthew Vadum  

Was last week's massacre at Umpqua Community College in Oregon a failed attempt to assassinate a Christian American hero for thwarting a Muslim terrorist train attack this summer in France?
There may simply be a series of unlikely coincidences at play, or there may be circumstantial evidence suggesting that anti-jihadist hero Alek Skarlatos was an intended target of Chris Harper-Mercer, who put several Christians to death in an Umpqua classroom on Thursday, Oct. 1 for being Christian. 
Read on and decide for yourself if Harper-Mercer may have wanted to make an example of Skarlatos for the world to see.
And although no evidence revealed thus far directly indicates Harper-Mercer was influenced by Islamic State, plenty of evidence suggests the shooter was acting in furtherance of the Islamic goal of global jihad.  Maybe the massacre was intended as a kind of jihadist payback hit.
Islamic State (a.k.a. ISIS, ISIL, and Daesh) apparently claimed responsibility on Twitter for the killings Harper-Mercer carried out at Umpqua.  The tweet states, "Again #Oregon #USA #WashingtonDC #IslamicState #ISIS #USA[,]" and displays a graphic with the words “Slay Americans” in front of an image of a man in the process of being beheaded.
In August the very high-profile Skarlatos, a devout Christian, helped to disarm Ayoub El-Khazzani, a Moroccan with ties to radical Islam, on a high-speed train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris.  The Islamist was armed with a Kalashnikov rifle, a Luger pistol, and a box cutter.  Skarlatos and his two American friends traveling with him received France's highest honor, the Legion d'Honneur, from French President François Hollande.  Last month they were feted at the White House and the Pentagon.  Skarlatos received the U.S. Army's Soldier's Medal.
Skarlatos has publicly acknowledged that he is currently a student at Umpqua, near Roseburg, Ore., and that he was supposed to be attending classes there on Thursday when Harper-Mercer went on a bloody rampage.
More specifically, Skarlatos said he was supposed to be present that day in Snyder Hall, the same building where Harper-Mercer carried out his massacre.
As USA Today reports
In a taped interview with Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday, Skarlatos said he was supposed to be in the building where Thursday's shooting took place.
"I had classes in Snyder Hall," said Skarlatos.  "It's a fairly small community college, the town in general, everybody knows each other.  So with that many deceased, I mean everybody's going to know at least one person." [...]
"I would have been there today if I didn't agree to do this show," he said.  "I had classes picked out and everything."
As a famous American and Christian who prevented what could have been a high-casualty terrorist attack in France -- one of the few Western nations that over the objections of President Obama is actually trying to do something about the Islamist peril -- Skarlatos would have been an attractive target for Islamists.
Because America and much of the world holds Skarlatos up as a symbol of heroic Western resolve to defeat Islamism, those who support Muslim expansionism view him as an enemy.  There are very few people on the planet who would be a more valuable target than Skarlatos.
Islamists aren't exactly known for forgiving and forgetting.  A British supporter of Islamic State reportedly published the name and address of the U.S. Navy SEAL soldier who is credited with killing al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.  The Islamist identified the serviceman as "a number one target to eventually hunt down and kill."
Islamists view not only Skarlatos, but also his two childhood friends who helped to foil the train attack, as enemies.  The three young men have been widely identified in news reports as fervent Christians.  Skarlatos attended "an independent Christian middle school," the Sacramento Bee reported.
Over the years the three friends have stayed in touch, united by longtime bonds and their shared religious faith, Alek's brother Peter Skarlatos said.  “They’re all Christians.  They’re all very religious.”
Which brings us to Harper-Mercer, 26 (his age was initially reported as 20) who killed 10 people and wounded seven at Umpqua Community College last Thursday before being killed by police.  Witnesses said that Harper-Mercer wore body armor and entered a classroom where an English and writing class was being conducted.  He demanded that those present say if they were Christian.
Those who said yes were fatally shot in the head.  He reportedly said "because you're a Christian, you're going to see God in just about one second."  Those who said no or refused to answer were shot in the legs.  No news reports indicate anyone in Snyder Hall identified himself or herself as Muslim.
Singling out Christian hostages for death is the same modus operandi used by Islamic terrorist groups like al Qaeda-linked Al Shabaab.
As Raymond Ibrahim reports at Jihad Watch, Al Shabaab did the same thing as Harper-Mercer did when it attacked a school in Kenya:
For the record, there is a precedent here:  Whenever Islamic terrorists raid large centers where Muslims and Christians are intermingled, they routinely separate Muslims from Christians, before massacring the latter.
For example, last April in Kenya, gunmen from the Somali Islamic group, Al Shabaab—“the youth”—stormed Garissa University, singled out Christian students, and murdered them, some beheaded. 
Al Shabaab "has a long history of singling Christians out from among Muslims for slaughter," according to Ibrahim.  He provides four other recent examples from Kenya:
June 15, 2014: Approximately 50 militants from Al Shabaab went on a killing spree in Mpeketoni, a predominantly Christian town on Kenya’s coast.  They chanted “Allahu Akbar,” killed whoever could not recite verses from the Koran, and went door-to-door asking residents their religion, killing those who answered “Christian.”  More than 57 people were killed, including six children of church pastors.
August 24, 2014: Al Shabaab abducted a group of traders near the island of Lamu.  The militants eventually released three of them, because they were Muslims, but beheaded the fourth, a Christian.
November 22, 2014: Al Shabaab attacked a bus and massacred 28 of its Christian passengers.  Again, Muslim passengers were separated and left unharmed.
December 2, 2014: Al Shabaab gunmen launched an early morning raid on quarry workers sleeping in their worksite tents near the city of Mandera, along the Somali border.  Christians and Muslims were separated before the Christians, thirty-six of them, were beheaded or shot dead.
Harper-Mercer has been identified in news reports as emotionally disturbed and as anti-organized religion or an atheist.
But unlike double-murderer Vester Lee Flanagan II (a.k.a. Bryce Williams), the gay, black, Black Lives Matter-supporting, and Obama-supporting registered Democrat who shot two white former TV colleagues to death on live television, Harper-Mercer didn't leave an elaborate social media trail behind.  (Harper-Mercer did reportedly write online about Flanagan, building him up as a role model.  "A man who was known by no one, is now known by everyone ...  Seems the more people you kill, the more your're [sic] in the limelight.)
As Breitbart News reports
Mercer’s MySpace [page] features only two connections, one of which is a man named Mahmoud Ali Ehsani.  Ehsani published a photo album titled, “Classic – The Mujahideen Collection LOL,” featuring Islamic terrorists from several countries, including Palestine, Iran, and Pakistan, among others.
One caption reads: “my brave soldiers keep on fighting for the liberation of Palestine against Israel.  fuck israel.  Kill the jews.  jews are the only infidels.”
Mercer wrote on a dating profile he disliked “organized religion,” and considered himself “spiritual” instead of religious.  He also described himself as a “teetotaler” and said he “never” did drugs.
Harper-Mercer's MySpace page also contains Irish Republican Army (IRA) propaganda.  His online collection of articles, images, and videos was labeled "Ireland's Freedom Fighters."  
At first glance the IRA connection may seem irrelevant but it's not.  The IRA  has a long history of cooperating with the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and other Islamist groups.
Harper-Mercer had an interest in Nazism, like the Islamic world where Adolf Hitler's autobiographical book, Mein Kampf, remains popular to this day.  (Instead of the English-language title, My Struggle, the Arabic translation of the book's name has been changed to My Jihad.)
No writings by Harper-Mercer revealing an explicit, stated animus towards Jews have yet surfaced but given what we know so far about his beliefs, it is difficult to imagine him having warm feelings for Jewish people.  This young man, who had no job and presumably little money, plunked down close to $150 online for SS headwear.
The fanatical SS, or Schultzstaffel, was an elite Praetorian Guard-like organization within the Third Reich that led Hitler's "Final Solution" against the Jews and other hated groups.  The leader of the SS, Reichsfuehrer-SS Heinrich Himmler, told SS officers in a 1943 speech that killing Jews, whom he characterized as a pathogen, was necessary for the health of the Nazi state.
"We have the moral right, we had the duty to our people to do it, to kill this people who would kill us," Himmler said.  The Jews' confiscated wealth was forfeit to the Reich and no SS officers should take for themselves even "one Mark" or "one cigarette" because "we don't want, at the end of all of this, to get sick and die from the same bacillus that we have exterminated."
Identifying himself with the user name, ironcross45, Harper-Mercer ordered a pricey leather Nazi SS officer's cap from the website iOffer, and praised the site for its excellent "customer service."  The stated price was 98.34 British pounds, which was equivalent to US$149.01 at time of writing.  
On a dating site Harper-Mercer used the same username, ironcross45, apparently a reference to a German military honor, the Independent (UK) reports.  Long before he seized power in Germany, Hitler served as a lance corporal in the German Imperial Army during World War One.  He received the Iron Cross, Second Class, in 1915, and the Iron Cross, First Class in 1918 for his military service in the Great War.
It is worth noting that the very first person to die at Harper-Mercer's hands Thursday was Jewish. 
The gunman reportedly walked up to Assistant Professor Lawrence "Larry" Levine and said "I've been waiting to do this for years."   He then shot Levine at close range.
Before the shooting began Harper-Mercer reportedly
...  gave a bunch of papers and a thumb drive to someone on campus, multiple sources told ABC News.
They contain hate-filled writings and material, with the information on the thumb drive found to be more extensive, they said.
The messages in the papers and thumb drive that the suspect left behind can be described as espousing racial and social hatred, one source added.
Even though Harper-Mercer was half-black himself, black men are reportedly singled out in the rants on the thumb drive.  Are rants against Jews also on the drive?  We'll have to wait to find out what if anything this collector of expensive Nazi paraphernalia had to say about Jewish people.
Although you won't hear it from the mainstream media, Nazis and Islamists have much in common.  It is fair to say that Islamic terrorists are the last of Hitler's World War Two coalition partners that have yet to be vanquished.
The Islamic world aligned with the Third Reich, and this alliance "has largely been whitewashed from the pages of history," Pamela Geller reminds us:
Many Muslims fought on the German side during World War II.  The Wehrmacht had six legions with a Muslim majority and the SS had three Muslim divisions, a brigade and a Waffenbrigade.  Each Muslim unit got a mullah as an adviser.  In November 1944, an SS mullah school was established in Dresden, founded by Himmler.
So many Muslims volunteered to fight for Nazi Germany that in 1943 Hitler gave them their own division, known as the 13th Waffen Mountain Division of the SS Handschar (1st Croatian).  Handschar means sword in English and in this case refers to the scimitar, a curved sword associated in Arab and other cultures with Islam.  A scimitar appears in the flag of Yemen.  Two crossed scimitars appear in the Pakistani Army's flag and in the Saudi war flag and in some jihadist flags.  A straight stylized version of a scimitar appears in the Saudi national flag but a curved scimitar appeared in a previously version of the same flag. 
Harper-Mercer's enthusiasm for Nazis and the killing of Christians is something he shares with the Islamofascist terrorists now wreaking havoc in the Middle East and around the world.  As anyone who follows the news knows, Islamic State fighters delight in torturing and killing Christians because they are Christians.
Although it would be an understatement to say that Hitler's views on world religions were complex and at times seemingly contradictory, the leader of the "Thousand-Year Reich" that lasted 12 years despised Christianity and admired Islam and its militarism.
Hitler said nice things about Christianity in public, but excoriated it in private.  "Christianity is the prototype of Bolshevism: the mobilization by the Jew of the masses of slaves with the object of undermining society," Hitler reportedly said in 1941.
Although some dispute whether Hitler ever said such a thing, it cannot be denied that in the Third Reich the Nazi Party treated the Christian church as something to be bent and twisted to serve National Socialist goals.  A movement called "Positive Christianity" was promoted to co-opt the church and inject it with Nazi ideology, including the party's belief in the importance of racial purity.  The name itself implies that Christianity is bad.
Official Nazi ideologist Alfred Rosenberg referred to Roman Catholicism and Protestantism as "negative Christianity."  He sought to whitewash Christianity's connection to Judaism and "substitute the spirit of the [German Nordic] hero for that of the Crucifixion."  And Hitler, as stated above, liked Islam enough to welcome Muslims into the Axis alliance.
Harper-Mercer's murderous actions show that he shared Hitler's contempt for Christianity.  This unemployed loser who bought overpriced Nazi paraphernalia may also have resented Skarlatos for all the attention he received. 
So the question then arises, why in his televised address Thursday before many facts were publicly released, did President Obama take it upon himself to lecture the nation on the urgent need for more gun control?
Instead of comforting Americans and bringing them together as a decent, patriotic person would, Obama immediately seized on the opportunity to divide Americans politically. 
Obama said nothing about the religious aspect of the killings.  This self-professed Christian who studied in a Muslim school and speaks of Islam in reverent tones said nothing about how the killer asked his victims jihadist-style if they were Christian and then blew them away. 
Why would the president ignore this shocking fact?  Maybe the answer is that to do so would have linked the killer to Islam.
Maybe President Obama knows more about the martyring of Christians at Umpqua Community College than he's letting on.
