Majority of French, Austrian Voters View Globalisation as Threat

A majority of Austrian and French voters are concerned about globalisation, a study has found, identifying it as the top factor driving support for populist parties.

The findings of the survey by Germany’s Bertelsmann Foundation sharply contradict the image of populism projected by most of the mainstream media.
The survey showed 55 per cent of Austrian respondents and 54 per cent of French view globalisation as a threat but the numbers among people who support populist parties were much higher.
76 per cent of Front National (FN) supporters and 69 per cent of respondents who back the Freedom Party of Austria (FPO) say they fear globalisation. This was also the case for 78 per cent of Germans who support the populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.
Concerns over globalisation were a greater determinant of support for populist parties than other factors such as traditional values and economic anxiety, Reuters reported.
The results of the survey of 14,936 citizens in nations within the European Union (EU) come amid establishment fears ahead of Sunday’s presidential run-off vote in Austria, and the French presidential election next year in which FN candidate Marine Le Pen is expected to do well.
Traditional parties have grown increasingly worried about populism after Britain voted to leave the EU and Americans voted for Donald Trump, who ran on a platform of standing up for the interests of U.S. citizens, to be president.
Across the 28 nations in the EU, 45 per cent said they view the phenomena as a threat compared to 55 per cent who said it is an opportunity. Of the nine countries polled, people in Britain were found to be the least concerned about globalisation with just 36 per cent fearing the process, under which it’s estimated huge numbers of jobs will be permanently lost.
The mainstream media in Britain, and internationally, were united in condemning recent changes to the visa system that were brought in by the government to help prevent the displacement of British workers.
Papers widely quoted Indian tech company Nasscom, who said: “A system that restricts the UK’s ability to access talent is also likely to restrict the growth and productivity of the UK economy.”
The mainstream media neglected to report that the system change, which raised salary thresholds for intra-company (ICT) worker transfers from outside the EU, came after years of warnings that the system is being abused.
Intended for employees of multinational companies who are being transferred by their overseas employer to a UK branch of the body, ICTs were instead being used to replace British workers with cheaper Indian labour, and relocate British jobs to India.
Nearly 90 per cent of all ICTs are to Indian workers in the field of IT, while the unemployment rate of UK graduates in computer science is higher than in any other field.
Research increasingly confirms that while globalisation hurts the middle classes, and unskilled workers in the West, the super-rich benefit immensely from it.

Economist Branko Milanović commented that Western elites “have continually piled up larger and larger gains, all the while socially and mentally separating themselves from fellow citizens”.

German intel officer arrested for plotting terrorist attack

By Rick Moran

A 51 year old intelligence officer was arrested earlier this month for leaking secrets to Islamists and plotting an attack on Germany's domestic intelligence agency in Cologne.
The unnamed suspect recently converted to Islam and had been with the domestic intel agency, the BfV, for only a short while.
The man was caught trying to recruit other Islamists to join the BfV on an extremist website in order to carry out terrorist attacks.
An official with the intelligence agency said the man attempted to pass on “sensitive information about [the agency], which could lead to a threat to the office.”
The suspect also used online chat rooms in an attempt to recruit radical Islamists to the spy agency to mount attacks against “non-believers.” The man was caught after chatting with an undercover agent from the office, according to Der Spiegel.
Germany is currently under a high-threat terrorist alert following a series of attacks in western Europe this past summer. U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper warned in April that ISIS had terrorist cells in the United Kingdom, Germany, and Italy similar to those operated by the jihadists who carried out attacks in Paris and Brussels.
The Guardian has more on the suspect:
The man has been identified as a 51-year-old Spanish-born German citizen who converted to Islam in 2014, in a telephone recruitment process. He is believed to have sworn an allegiance to the preacher and recruiter Mohamed Mahmoud, a prominent Salafist from Berlin who is believed to be fighting with Islamic State in Syria.
He is accused of revealing agency secrets and of attempting to “pass on sensitive information about the BfV that could have endangered [the agency],” said the BfV spokesman.
In a partial confession the man said his goal had been to infiltrate the BfV and gather information for a terrorist attack on the BfV’s headquarters in the Cologne district of Chorweiler.
The accused also admitted to making Islamist statements under a false name on the internet.
The BfV said it had no information that the man was planning a specific bomb attack on the agency’s headquarters. “There is no evidence so far that there is a concrete threat,” the spokesman said.
The man was described by his employer as having previously “behaved inconspicuously” during his recruitment, training and while undertaking regular duties.
A bank employee and father, the man had been employed by the agency from April 2016 as a lateral entrant with the specific task of observing the Islamic scene in Germany.
There appears to be some confusion in the media about what exactly the unnamed suspect was up to. The New York Times and The Guardian downplay the idea that he was preparing an attack. There is even confusion about how he became radicalized, with the Guardian believing his extremist views are the result of his allegiance to an Islamist cleric while the German newspaper Deutsche Welle says he was "self-radicalized."
What is clear is that the German government has no idea if the suspect was acting alone or whether he was successful in recruiting others to join the BfV. They don't know where the information he leaked went to, nor how damaging the leaked information was.
The Germans pride themselves on how well they treat Muslims - even if it means relaxing vetting procedures so as not to offend them. I wonder how much longer that sort of attitude will prevail in German intelligence agencies.

Islamists Won: Charlie Hebdo Disappears

Over twenty years, fear has already devoured important pieces of Western culture and journalism. They all disappeared in a ghastly act of self-censorship: the cartoons of a Danish newspaper, a "South Park" episode, paintings in London's Tate Gallery, a book published by the Yale University Press; Mozart's Idomeneo, the Dutch film "Submission", the name and face of the US cartoonist Molly Norris, a book cover by Art Spiegelman and Sherry Jones's novel, "Jewel of Medina", to name just a few. Most of them have become ghosts living in hiding, hidden in some country house, or retired to private life, victims of an understandable but tragic self-censorship.
Only the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo was missing from this sad, long list. Until now.
The disappointment with what Charlie Hebdo has become is reflected in the words of the French journalist, Marika Bret: "From Italy we receive many threats." The reference is not to some Italian jihadist cell, but to a September Charlie Hebdo cover that mocked victims of the earthquake in Italy. It seems that the satirical weekly, almost destroyed by French Islamists two years ago, has been "normalized".
Take Charlie's recent covers. Against terrorists? No. Against those who called them "racists"? No. It was against Éric Zemmour, the brave French journalist at Le Figaro who has led a public debate about French identity. "Islam is incompatible with secularism, incompatible with democracy, and incompatible with republican government," Zemmour wrote.
Laurent Sourisseau, aka "Riss," now the publishing director and majority owner of Charlie, was shot during the 2015 attack on the magazine, and lives under police protection. He depicted Zemmour on the cover with an explosive vest, effectively comparing him to a terrorist.
Charlie Hebdo also recently satirized Nadine Morano, a critic of Islam, depicting her as a baby with Down Syndrome.
Riss also recently published a comic book attacking another easy target of submissive conformists, entitled "The Dark Side of Marine Le Pen." Le Pen leads France's National Front party, with a platform fighting for national sovereignty and Europe's Judeo-Christian identity. In Charlie, the political leader of the French "right" is dressed as Marilyn Monroe.
For the first anniversary of the massacre at Charlie Hebdo's office, Riss released a cover not with Mohammed, but depicting a murderous Judeo-Christian God, as if Riss's colleagues had not been butchered by Islamists but by Catholics. Riss had, in fact, announced earlier that the magazine would "no longer draw Mohammed".
The first person at Charlie to capitulate was "Luz", a well-known cartoonist. He surrendered, saying: "I will no longer draw Muhammad".
Charlie Hebdo, after Islamist terrorists murdered much of its staff in 2015, announced it would "no longer draw Mohammed." Instead, the magazine now focuses on attacking critics of Islamism, and mocking the Judeo-Christian God.
"The transplant that works worst," said Jeannette Bougrab, the companion of Charlie's late editor Stéphane Charbonnier, "is the transplant of balls." Bougrab charged the attack's survivors with bowing to terrorism and threats by betraying the legacy of free speech for which these truthful men were murdered.
After the massacre of January 7, 2015, the cartoonist "Luz" cried in front of the cameras after presenting a cover depicting the survivors, in which Muhammad was portrayed as saying, "All is forgiven". Luz then appeared in Le Grand Journal along with Madonna, and in a gesture of sad voyeurism, displayed his genitals, covered by the logo "Je suis Charlie".
Charlie's "normalization" was also reflected in the recent dramatic decision to terminate the magazine's relationship with another survivor, the French-Tunisian intellectual and journalist Zineb el Rhazoui, who also now has to live under police protection for her criticism of Islamic extremists.
"The newspaper is no longer the same, Charlie is now under artistic and editorial suffocation," she told Le Monde. Rhazoui is the author of a new book, "Détruire le Fascisme Islamique" ("Destroying Islamic Fascism").
"We must continue to portray Muhammad and Charlie; not to do that means there is no more Charlie", said Patrick Pelloux, another cartoonist who left the magazine.
There were seven cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo. Five were killed on January 7, 2015: Charb, Cabu, Honoré, Tignous and Wolinski. The other two, Luz and Pelloux, resigned after the massacre. The headline of the monthly Causeur captured the atmosphere: "Charlie Hebdo Commits Hara-Kiri," playing with the Japanese form suicide and the previous name of Charlie (which was "Hara-Kiri"). Between murders, desertions and self-censorship, Charlie's story is almost over.
What is happening? Sadly, the Islamists' threats and attacks are working. A similar crisis affected the Jyllands-Posten, the Danish newspaper that first published the 12 cartoons of Muhammad, which Charlie Hebdo immediately, to show solidarity, reproduced. "The honor of France was saved by Charlie Hebdo," wrote Bernard-Henri Lévy when the magazine republished the Danish cartoons, while many "right thinking" media blasted the "Islamophobia" of those caricatures.
"The truth is that for us it would be totally irresponsible to publish the cartoons today," the director of Jyllands-Posten, Jorn Mikkelsen says to justify his self-censorship. "Jyllands-Posten has a responsibility to itself and its employees." Such as Kurt Westergaard, author of the caricature of Mohammed with a bomb in his turban, who now lives in a house-fortress, with cameras and security windows and machine-gun toting guards outside.
An ideological clash inside Charlie Hebdo developed well before the terror attack. Zineb el Rhazoui arrived at the weekly magazine through editor Stéphane Charbonnier, "Charb", the brave journalist who lead the battle against Islamist intimidation in Europe. Even from his grave, he penned an "Open Letter to the Fraudsters of Islamophobia Who Play Into Racists' Hands." But, as Libération writes, "Riss opposed Charb; he is less politically identified, more introverted than him."
Charbonnier belonged to the generation of Philippe Val and Caroline Fourest, the libertarian journalists determined to criticize Islam, who, from 1992 to 2009, shaped the weekly magazine.
"Charb? Where is Charb?", shouted the terrorists in Charlie Hebdo's office, to make sure they found the journalist they considered responsible for the Mohammed cartoons controversy.
Philippe Val, who as a former Charlie Hebdo editor, was put on trial in Paris for printing those cartoons, published a book "Malaise dans l'inculture" ("Sickness in the Lack of Culture"), which attacks "the ideological Berlin Wall" that has been raised by the Left.
In 2011, after a firebombing that destroyed Charlie's offices, an appeal by frightened, intimidated journalists announced their refusal to support the magazine's stance on Islam. Two years later, one of the signatories, Olivier Cyran, a former editor of Charlie Hebdo, charged the magazine with being "obsessive about the Muslims." So did a former Charlie journalist, Philippe Corcuff, who accused his colleagues at the magazine of fomenting "a clash of civilizations."
The attacks continued with another former cartoonist at Charlie Hebdo, Delfeil de Ton, who, in Le Nouvel Observateur, after the 2015 massacre, shamefully accused Charb of "dragging" the staff into the slaughter by continuing to satirize Mohammed.
After the Kouachi brothers slaughtered Charlie Hebdo's staff, they ran out into the street and cried: "We have avenged Mohammed. We killed Charlie Hebdo." Two years later, it appears that they won. They succeeded in silencing the last European magazine still ready to defend freedom of expression from Islamism. And they sent a special warning to all the others. Because after Charlie Hebdo, writing articles critical of Islam, or penning a cartoon, make them a target for assassination attempts and intimidation campaigns.
The feminist and philosopher Elisabeth Badinter, who testified in court for the French cartoonists in the documentary, "Je suis Charlie," said: "If our colleagues in the public debate do not share part of the risk, then the barbarians have won."
The magazine Paris Match asked Philippe Val if he could imagine the disappearance of Charlie Hebdo. Val replied: "This would be the end of a world and the beginning of Michel Houellebecq's 'Submission'". After attacks comes self-censorship: submission. If Charlie Hebdo is tired and fleeing from responsibilities, who can blame it? But the others, the rest?

Attorney General to Appeal Non-Custodial Sentence for ‘Child Migrant’ Who Raped Five-Year-Old Boy

The Attorney-General’s Office has been asked to appeal the sentence of a child migrant, alleged to be 15 years-old, who was convicted of raping a five year-old boy in Derby this month, Breitbart London can reveal.

The migrant, who told his victim he would “break him into pieces” if he told anyone about the attack, escaped a custodial sentence entirely, with circuit judge Jonathan Bennett handing down a three-year rehabilitation order.
So soon after controversial court rulings on Brexit and Article 50, the decision has sparked widespread public outrage, raising further questions about the lack of judicial accountability in Great Britain. There have even been calls for out of touch judges to be subject to retention elections, as is common in Japan and many American states.
The extreme lenience shown stands in contrast to the severity with which two Polish migrants were recently treated after throwing bacon at a mosque. This drunken prank earned an eight-month sentence, with the pair reportedly suffering repeated assaults at the hands of Muslim inmates while in prison.
Breitbart London asked Derby prosecutors if they would request that the Attorney-General protest the sentence in the Court of Appeal under the Unduly Lenient Sentence scheme, considering the case could easily have been referred to the Crown Court as a “grave crime” and attracted a substantial prison term.
The Crown Prosecution Service’s local Victim Liaison unit told us they would not, as their Senior Crown Prosecutor did not believe this was appropriate in youth cases.
Anyone can ask the Attorney-General to appeal an Unduly Lenient Sentence, however, and after taking up the matter with the Attorney-General’s press team Breitbart London has learned that at least one unnamed individual has.
Jeremy Wright and Robert Buckland, the Tory MPs who serve as the government’s Chief Law Officers, must decide whether or not they will ask the Court of Appeal to reconsider the sentence by December 13th.
This is a big test for Theresa May’s administration, which has already been accused of trying to cover-up the failings in its policy towards supposed “child migrants” arriving from Calais.

The government built 15-foot high screens to shield new arrivals from public view after pictures emerged which seemed to show that large numbers of migrants were substantiallyolder than claimed.

Left Wing Extremists Plan ‘F*ck-Hofer’ March Day Before Austrian Election


The left-wing extremist Antifa group plan to march from Vienna’s busiest shopping district to the anti-mass migration Freedom Party (FPÖ) headquarters and “visit” several right-wing fraternities along the way.

The march, dubbed, “F*ck Hofer” is set for Saturday, the day before the Austrian presidential election that sees FPÖ candidate Norbert Hofer square off against ex-Green party leader Alexander Van der Bellen. The Antifa group say that they will march from the Mariahilfestrasse shopping district to the headquarters of the FPÖ hitting several “targets” along the way, reports Kronen Zeitung.
Aside from the FPÖ headquarters the extremists plan to “visit” several right-wing fraternities in the Josefstadt district known as the Burschenshaft. These fencing fraternities, which were formed by students who resisted Napoleon and played a large role in the 1848 revolutions,  are linked to the FPÖ as Norbert Hofer himself is a member of the Marko-Germania fraternity.
According to posts made to the Antifa Facebook page, which also has a map of the route the extremists plan to take, the protest will start at 2:00pm at a memorial for a Nigerian failed asylum seeker who died during deportation to Bulgaria in 1999. The group’s members have declared that Mr. Hofer as president would “make a mockery of concentration camp victims”.
Antifa left wing extremists plan to march to Freedom Party of Austria headquarters day before Austrian presidential election.
Over 200 people on Facebook have indicated that they will be present at the march and a further 800 have expressed interest in the event, but the comments have not all been positive. Some have said that the march will only drive more voters to Hofer and that a pro-Van der Bellen march would have been a better idea. “What exactly is the purpose of this demo one day before the election?” one user wrote.
Mr. Van der Bellen has attempted to distance himself from the left-wing extremists, who annually attack police at the FPÖ-sponsored Academy Ball and who more recently put a member of the hipster-right Identitarian movement in a coma after they threw bricks off a roof into a crowd during a protest.
In neighbouring Germany the Antifa, which is short for Anti-Fascist Action, movement is even more violent and police there are concerned about the growing number of crimes committed by left-wing extremists. The German branch of the extremist movement has targeted politicians of the anti-mass migration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party after releasing members’ home addresses on one of their affiliated websites.

Several members of the AfD have been attacked physically by members of the extremist group and have also been the victims of property damage including having their cars set on fire.

Schools Holding Pro-Migrant Brainwashing Workshops


Pupils in Northern France were encouraged to think about the “feelings, pains, and hopes” of migrants, in workshops which were instead supposed to educate and spread awareness about journalism.

Journalist Sheerazad Chekaik-Chaila was tasked by the commune of Valenciennes with holding workshops to educate teachers, pupils, social workers, managers, and parents on the work journalists do and the value of freedom of expression.
The project is sponsored by the regional of arm of the Ministry of Culture, which after the Charlie Hebdo attacks set up a media awareness and education campaign.
Working with a group of classes from schools across Valenciennes, France, Chekaik-Chaila is instead spending the five weeks she has with the pupils talking about migration.
In a lesson attended by La Voix du Nord, the Liberátion journalist invited pro-migrant activist Haydée Saberan, whose book Those Who Pass argues “implicitly [against] absurd laws that prevent the free movement of people, [which] promote poverty, insecurity and crime”.
The group of middle school and high school pupils were tasked with reading Saberan’s book before her guest appearance at one of the workshops. One of the people who attended the session reported that everyone was “moved” by it, and highlighted a passage from a chapter of her book which focuses on a young Afghan migrant who fled to France “in fear of his life”. It said: “When he left home, he was a child; When he arrived here, he was an adult.”
Saberan, a journalist whose work centres on migrants living in camps like Calais and Dunkirk from which they hope to reach Britain, was presented as an “expert” on migration.
She stressed to the teenagers the importance of understanding the “experience, the feelings, the pains and hopes of these men, women and children [migrants] who journeyed to France with their lives in danger”. This, she said, formed the core of her approach as a journalist reporting on the Calais Jungle.
La Voix du Nord last month reported on a school visit by Chekaik-Chaila, noting that the teacher who invited the journalist said: “When we got the offer of meeting a journalist and working with her, we jumped at the chance. It’s important for them to understand [the media]”.
Chekaik-Chaila explained that she will help pupils understand “the media, the importance [of journalists] and why they can be criticised but how they are oh so precious”.

However, it was revealed in the same article that she would begin working from the next Friday with pupils on the topic of migration.

GEREXIT? Merkel in MELTDOWN as nearly HALF of Germans want EU referendum, poll finds

NEARLY half of all Germans want to hold a referendum on their nations EU membership – with a survey suggesting almost two-thirds of Germans are unhappy and want change in the crumbling Brussels bloc.A survey carried out by TNS Infratest Politikforschung found 42 per cent of Germans believe there should be a referendum on their EU membership and that 62 per cent of Germans think the EU is “heading in the wrong direction”. The same survey found 67 per cent want the bureaucratic superstate to change its political direction and just 39 per cent of Germans believe EU membership is exclusively positive.About 96 per cent of Germans want the failing Brussels bloc to be become “more transparent and closer to the people”, the independent polling institute found. The results will come as a blow to Angela Merkel, who has been widely criticised for her open-door immigration policy which saw one million migrants enter Germany in 2015. Yet the German Chancellor last week announced plans to deport 100,000 migrants who arrived in Germany last year as she looks to recover some of her floundering support in the polls after announcing her bid to run for ha fourth term as her nations’ leader.Almost half of all respondents believe the refugee crisis is the biggest problem the country faces and a resolution can only be found with the cooperation of the other 27 member states. Yet more than a quarter of Germans believe the other member states have left the country to deal with the immigration problem by itself, highlighting the deep divisions which is driving the bloc apart. The migrant crisis which has plagued the EU in recent months has led to 70 per cent of respondents wanting the EU to protect its external borders, with 21 per cent wanting them to be completely closed.It is estimated some 215,000 migrants have been denied the right to stay in Germany over the last 18 months, most because they come from countries in eastern Europe and north Africa which are not ravaged by war. Around 60 per cent of the respondents also believe that Germany should strengthen its role within the EU and promote its interests within the bloc, even if it contradicts the views of other members. Just one third of Germans who responded to the polling have faith in the refugee resettlement deal with Turkey.As part of the EU's deal with Turkey, migrants and refugees who arrive on Greek shores after March 20 are to be transported to five Aegean islands and shipped back to the Islamic nation if their asylum applications are not accepted.Eurocrats promised to give Ankara more than £5billion as part of a deal that would speed up Turkey’s entry into the EU if Erdogan promised to stop boats of migrants making the perilous journey to Greece and the rest of Schengen zone.

Domestic Intel Officer Arrested for Plotting Islamic Terror Attack on Germany’s FBI

An officer in the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) has been arrested over fears he may have been involved in plotting a terrorist attack on the agency.

The arrest of the 51-year-old officer who works for the domestic security agency — equivalent to the FBI — comes after he made a “partial confession” to fellow agents that he was not just observing the radical Islamist scene in Germany, but had also become a part of it, Der Spiegel reports.
The revelation has stoked new fears that Islamists may have infiltrated the spy agency which German Chancellor Angela Merkel has recently said the German government would drastically expand in the coming year.
According to the confession, he was plotting to bomb the national headquarters of the agency which is located in Cologne.
A spokesman for the BfV said, “He is accused of making Islamist remarks online under a false name, and offering internal information during chats.”
The man had been at the agency for several months starting in April of this year, and was hired to monitor the radical Islamist scene but admitted he had joined the agency in order to infiltrate it and gather information.
Included in the logs of his chats were messages in which he talked to fellow radical Islamists, and tried to recruit them into the domestic spy agency to facilitate attacks against people they referred to as “non believers.”
A former bank clerk, the man was unknown to the agency until he joined, and even his wife was unaware that he had secretly converted to Islam.
His conversion was made via phone call and he pledged an oath to a Salafist Imam named Mohamed Mahmoud who previously preached in Berlin before travelling to Syria to fight for the Islamic state.
The BfV noted that he was “inconspicuous” during his application and all through his training. The agency did note the man’s attention to secrecy as they discovered multiple storage devices which outlined internal operations, assignments and deployments during the course of their investigation.
The spy was finally caught after trying to recruit who he thought was a fellow Islamist into the agency on the internet, but turned out to be a fellow agent at the BfV.
The BfV wields great power to spy on the citizens of Germany, made even stronger by recent reforms by the government of Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The Salafist scene is also growing within the country as many estimate that there are over 9000 adherents of the radical Islamic ideology which has often turned members onto a path of violence and terrorism.

Cologne Police Consider Helicopters and ‘Women Retreats’ to Fight Migrant Sex Attacks


After more than 1,000 women were mugged, sexually assaulted, and raped by migrants last New Year’s Eve, the city of Cologne is considering using helicopters, registering all newcomers, and setting up “women retreats” to keep females safe this year.

The official recommendations were made to police in a report, seen by Cologne’s Expressnewspaper, written by expert police who have analysed theevents at the New Year’s Eve celebrations last year.
“A consistent and comprehensive first-time survey of asylum seekers/refugees at entry is regarded as mandatory for both preventive policing… and investigative inspection,” the report asserts.
The authors say the establishment of “women retreats/security points” should be examined, and police should look to deploy specially trained female sexual offence officers to the streets “in order to carry out qualified questioning and secure objective evidence”.
They also suggest extra “police horses, helicopters, and elevated observation positions” to control the mobs and revellers this year, and much-expanded use of surveillance including “vigorously documenting video surveillance and sufficient light sources”.
Furthermore, the report argues that there must be more work done to integrate immigrants and “improve the basic conditions which result in social-structure disadvantages and frustrations as a result of lack of personal exchange, financial participation, recognition, and barriers to getting to know women.”
During the 2015/16 New Year’s Eve celebrations in Cologne city centre, hundreds of sexual assaults (including groping and at least five rapes) were reported.
Witnesses described the attackers as “North African or Arab origin”. It later emerged that most suspects came from Algeria, Morocco, or Iraq, that many were claiming asylum in Germany, and 70 per cent of had been in the country for less than a year.

Local media later apologised for ‘covering up’ and initially 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.

Identitarians Place Giant Islamic Veil On Iconic Maria Theresa Statue


The hipster-right Identitarian youth movement has placed a full face veil on one of Vienna’s most well known statues to protest what they see as the Islamisation of Austria.

According to a press release put out by the group, the action took place in the early hours of Tuesday morning and required heavy duty equipment to accomplish as seen in the groups photos on their Facebook account.
The full face veil was placed on the 65 foot high statue to protest, what the group says in the growing Islamisation of Austria and included a sign at the foot of the statue reading, “Islamisation? No thanks!”
The burka was placed on a statue of former Empress of Austria Maria Theresa who is still much revered in the country for her stewardship and reforms in education and agriculture. She was also well known during her reign for her devout Catholic faith and attempts to convert those of other beliefs to Catholicism.
“If the politicians keep silent about Islamization, we need to draw attention to them all the more clearly! Every day our country is a bit more Islamized,” the group wrote, adding that “in Muslim kindergartens, jihad against unbelievers is called for, individual offenders perform assassinations while screaming “Allahu Akbar!”  in Austria. Meanwhile, state-legitimate Islamic experts know that all this has nothing to do with Islam and that Islamization does not take place.”
The assassinations mentioned likely refer to the Graz killer and a Vienna Muslim who attempted to copy his crime by running over pedestrians with his car in the style of the Nice attacks in France earlier this year. 
The Identitarians also mentioned the rise in trials for “hate posts” on social media in Austria.
They say that anyone who protests Islamisation “falls under extreme suspicions of extremism and in the worst case ends up in court”.  One of their members in Germany recently had his home raided according to the group, because he put up anti-mass migration stickers around his town.
“We therefore demand a remigration of all the illegal and those Muslims who reject our social order,” they write and go on to say, “furthermore, the political persecution of those people who are concerned about the future of Austria and the fact of the Islamization of our country must cease.”

The protest is the latest by the group who in recent months have hung signs against mass migration on the top of Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate and climbed the famous Burgtheater in Vienna. At the latter, they declared that Left wing politicians were hypocrites for promoting mass migration despite evidence that several of the terrorists who took part in the terror attacks in Paris had come into Europe as asylum seekers.

Anti-Semitism Up Threefold in Germany in One Year


Anti-Semitism rose threefold in Germany in one year, new official figures have revealed. The figures come as part of a wider focus on online hate speech.

According to newly released figures from the Ministry of Justice, there were 2,083 cases of attacks on Jews, Jewish property, and hate speech last year, up from just 691 cases in 2014, The Times has reported.
Previous analysis of crime figures had put the number of anti-Semitic cases in 2015 at 1,366, but closer analysis revealed that crimes such as the smashing of headstones in Jewish ceremonies, or starting fires at synagogues had been incorrectly classified as criminal damage or attempted arson in some states, with no mention made of the anti-Semitic nature of the crimes.
The revised data comes from a study by the Ministry of Justice into the rise of xenophobic and “far right” crime, obtained by Süddeutsche Zeitung. It represents the first attempt by the Federal government to level the reporting criteria for such crimes across the German states.
Last spring, at a Justice summit of ministers from the federal and state governments, it was noted that although “right wing” and xenophobic crimes had been recognised as a category of their own since 1992, no data was being collected on those crimes specifically.
The data since collected confirms the government’s view that “far right” crime is exponentially on the rise in Germany, especially on the internet. The government’s analysis appears to attribute any and all crimes with a racial or religious aspect to the “far right”.
It showed that investigations into “sedition” and “violence” had risen by 130 per cent from 2014/15, with 5,700 such crimes investigated last year.
Meanwhile, investigations into incitement to violence on the internet also saw a sharp increase, from 500 cases in 2014 to 2,300 last year.
Significantly, the rise of xenophobic crime has outstripped that of the spreading of right-wing propaganda. Although the latter saw a rise, the increase was less pronounced. Last year 13,576 prosecutions for crimes connected to propaganda and the sharing of “unconstitutional symbols” including swastikas were pursued, up nearly 20 per cent on 2014. Just over 1,100 were connected to internet use.

However, these crimes include cases of Islamophobia – including attacks against migrant shelters, of which there were 1,005 last year, including 92 cases of arson.

OSU jihadi: “By Allah, I am willing to kill a billion infidels”

Why didn’t the Muslims who saw this message report Artan to the police or the FBI?
“Ohio State Attacker Identified as Somali-Born Student,” by Jonathan Dienst, NBC News, November 28, 2016:
The man who attacked and injured nine people at Ohio State University Monday morning was a Somali national who had permanent residency in the United States, senior law enforcement sources said.
Abdul Razak Ali Artan drove a car into a crowd of people, then got out and stabbed several more before he was shot and killed by campus police.
Officials also confirmed that the 18-year-old was enrolled as an Ohio State student and had transferred there from Columbus State Community College. A media spokesperson for Columbus State said that Artan had attended school there and graduated cum laude with an Associate of Arts degree in the spring of 2016. He had no record of behavioral or disciplinary issues during his time there, the spokesperson said.
Artan was born in 1998 and left Somalia in 2007, officials told NBC News. He ultimately settled in Pakistan before coming to the United States in 2014, arriving at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City….
Law enforcement officials tell NBC News that Artan left behind a post on what appeared to be his Facebook page shortly before the attack, saying that assault on Muslims around the world “led to a boiling point. I can’t take it anymore.” The post ends: “By Allah, I am willing to kill a billion infidels in retribution for a single DISABLED Muslim/Musliman.”
The post appears to show that Artan suggested people “screenshot” his message before it got taken down. In fact, what appears to have been his Facebook account is now offline….

Ohio Muslim Terrorist Complained Muslims Were Stereotyped as Terrorists

Progressives are all too eager to gulp down stories of Muslims whining about how oppressed they are. The OSU Lantern ran a piece by Abdul Razak Ali Artan in which he whined about how afraid he was to pray at the college and how unfair it was that Muslims were being stereotyped as terrorists. Then he ran down some students and stabbed others with a butcher knife after ranting about the Muslim Ummah.
An Ohio State University student posted a rant shortly before he plowed a car into a campus crowd and stabbed people with a butcher knife in an ambush that ended when a police officer shot him dead, a law enforcement official said.
Abdul Razak Ali Artan, 18, wrote on what appears to be his Facebook page that he had reached a "boiling point" and made a reference to "lone wolf attacks" and cites radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.
"America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially Muslim Ummah (community). We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that," the post said.
Before that the OSU Lantern was giving the Muslim terrorists a platform for his whining.

"I wanted to pray in the open, but I was kind of scared with everything going on in the media. I'm a Muslim, it's not what the media portrays me to be. If people look at me, a Muslim praying, I don't know what they're going to think, what's going to happen."
I agree. It's about time we stopped accepting the media depiction of Muslims and started listening to peaceful ordinary Muslims like Abdul. Who will play the victim until their latest Islamic killing spree begins.
While the media pretended that Abdul had reason to be afraid, it was OSU students who had reason to be afraid of him.

Norbert Hofer Slams Merkel’s Migrant Policy in Latest TV Debate

As Sunday’s Austrian presidential election looms, anti-mass migration candidate Norbert Hofer blasted German Chancellor Angela Merkel accusing her of allowing terrorists into Europe.

In the latest debate, aired on Austria’s ATV network, populist Freedom Party (FPÖ) presidential candidate Norbert Hofer said that Merkel’s migrant policies were “causing serious damage to Europe” and claimed that the result of her open door policy last year allowed for well over a million migrants “including terrorists to trek through Austria”,  reports Zeit Online.
The statements echo those made weeks ago by the leader of the FPÖ Heinz-Christian Strache who said that Ms. Merkel was the “most dangerous woman in Europe”, because of her migrant policies.
The debate returned to the U.S. presidential election, President-Elect Donald J. Trump being a subject of discussion in the previous debate, with Hofer criticising his rival, ex-Green party leader Alexander Van der Bellen, for his attitude toward the incoming U.S. president. “It is not clever to describe a president as a rabble rouser”, said Hofer referring to comments made weeks prior by Van der Bellen in which he called Trump and Hofer “demagogues“.
Mr. Van der Bellen fired back at Hofer claiming that the election of the populist candidate could make Austria one step closer to an exit from the European Union (EU). While Hofer has floated the idea of leaving, he has said that he would only back a referendum on membership if the EU becomes even more centralised, or if Turkish membership into the political bloc is granted.
“The FPÖ has been toying with Austria’s exit for 20 years. Many politicians in Europe are worried that the mere speculation could trigger… an avalanche of right-wing populism,” said Mr. Van der Bellen. Already in the wake of the victory of President-Elect Trump many have speculated a growth in populist parties across Europe, calling it the “Trump Effect.”
Hofer and Van der Bellen also look in opposite directions when it comes to foreign ties. Van der Bellen looks west wanting to foster stronger ties with the German government, while Hofer looks east, and has expressed a desire to reengage with Russia and look for ways to end the economic sanctions which also impact the Austrian economy.

After almost a year of campaigning, the longest ever Austrian presidential race is set to come to a conclusion this Sunday, December 4th. While Van der Bellen has wooed over many in the establishment, including several members of the conservative Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP), Hofer has made huge inroads with working class Austrians fed up with what they consider an out of touch elite.
