Spain's 'Migrant Friendly' Border Fences

Spanish authorities have begun removing razor wire, known as concertina wire, from border fences along Spain's frontier with Morocco. The Socialist government ordered their removal after migrants who tried to jump the fences to enter Europe illegally suffered injuries after coming into contact with the wire.
Spanish Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska justified the removal by saying that Morocco had recently installed concertina wire on fences on its side of the border, and that therefore it was no longer necessary on the Spanish side.
Critics say that the razor wire functions as a significant deterrent to illegal immigration and that by removing it, the Spanish government not only risks unleashing new waves of mass migration from Africa, but also gives effective control of the Spanish border to Morocco, with which Spain has a tense relationship. Morocco frequently dumps large numbers of illegal migrants along the Spanish border to extract concessions from the Spanish government on unrelated issues.
The border fences in question involve those at Spain's North African exclaves of Ceuta and Melilla — magnets for Africans seeking a better life in Europe.
At Ceuta, two parallel fences that are six meters (20 feet) high and topped with concertina wire run eight kilometers (five miles) along the border with Morocco. At Melilla, twin fences that are four meters (13 feet) high run 12 kilometers (eight miles) along the border. The fences at Ceuta and Melilla are fortified with anti-climb mesh, video cameras, noise and motion sensors, spotlights and surveillance posts.
Each year, thousands of migrants — sometimes hundreds at a time — try to scale the fences at Ceuta and Melilla, where they are often successful. Once inside Spanish territory, illegal migrants are in the European Union, where magnanimous human rights laws virtually guarantee that they will never be deported back to their countries of origin.
Migrants who successfully scale the fences at Ceuta and Melilla are normally transferred to processing facilities in mainland Spain. Once there, many migrants continue on to wealthier countries in northern Europe, where social welfare benefits are more generous than in Spain. Only 30% of the migrants who enter Ceuta remain in Spain, according to Clemen Núñez, a director of the Red Cross in Ceuta. The rest normally move on to Britain, France and Germany. The border issue at Ceuta and Melilla is therefore one that affects all of Europe.
Migrants are increasingly using the tactic of mass attacks against the border fences in an effort to overwhelm the border police. During the past 18 months, thousands of migrants equipped with gloves, spike shoes and makeshift hooks have attempted to scale the fences at Ceuta and Melilla, often using extreme violence against the police. Notable recent incidents include:
  • July 26, 2018. At least 800 migrants from sub-Saharan Africa tried to scalethe fence at Ceuta. A total of 602 managed to enter Spanish territory. The migrants used unprecedented violence against Spanish law enforcement. Eleven police officers were injured when migrants attacked them with quicklime, homemade flamethrowers, sticks and sharp objects, as well as with urine and excrement.
  • August 22, 2018. A total of 119 migrants successfully scaled the fence at Ceuta, after taking advantage of a diminished police presence on the Moroccan side of the border during a Muslim holiday.
  • October 2018. More than 300 migrants tried to scale the fence at Melilla; 200 migrants, mostly from sub-Saharan Africa, successfully entered Spanish territory.
  • May 12, 2019. More than 100 migrants tried to scale the fence at Melilla; 52 migrants, mostly from Cameroon, Ivory Coast and Mali, successfully entered Spanish territory.
  • August 30, 2019. More than 400 migrants tried to scale the fence at Ceuta; 155 migrants, mostly from sub-Saharan Africa, successfully entered Spanish territory.
  • September 19, 2019. At least 60 migrants tried to scale the fence at Melilla; 26 migrants, mostly from sub-Saharan Africa, managed to enter Spanish territory.
  • November 18, 2019. A people smuggler transporting 52 migrants — 34 men, 16 women and two children — reached Spanish territory after driving his vanat full speed through the border gate at Ceuta. The driver, a 38-year-old Moroccan with French residency, was arrested more than a kilometer inside Spanish territory. The migrants, who claimed to be from Congo, Guinea and the Ivory Coast, were taken to a migrant processing facility in Ceuta.
Hundreds of migrants have suffered cuts and lacerations from the concertina wire, according to the Spanish Red Cross, prompting calls for the razor wire to be removed.
On June 14, 2018, Spanish Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska vowed to do "everything possible" to remove the "anti-migrant" razor wire fences. During an interview with the Spanish radio station Onda Cero, he said that he had commissioned a report into finding the "least bloody possible means" of preserving border security. "I'm going to do everything possible to see that these razor wire fences at Ceuta and Melilla are removed," he said. "It is one of my main priorities."
On February 23, 2019, Grande-Marlaska, during a campaign stop while on a visit to Ceuta, repeated his pledge to remove the concertina wire. At the same time, he visited a new barbed-wire fence on the Moroccan side of the border. The fence, topped with concertina wire, was paid for by a €140 million ($155 million) grant from the European Union.
On August 26, 2019, Grande-Marlaska, during an interview with Telecinco television, again said that he was determined to eliminate the "bloody means" of border control: "We said that we were going to generate 21st century borders, safer borders, where the concept of security and humanity are not in any way dissociated."
On December 3, 2019, the government began work on a €32 million ($35 million) plan to remove the concertina wires from the fences that separate Ceuta from Morocco. Ironically, the razor wires were first installed by the government of Socialist Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero in 2005 — at a cost of €28 million ($30 million).
The removal is in line with the current Socialist government's pro-immigration stance. In June 2018, for instance, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez welcomed 630 migrants from the Aquarius migrant ship who were rescued off the coast of Libya. Spain accepted the migrants after the Aquarius was refused entry by Italy and Malta. Italy's then interior minister, Matteo Salvini, accused Spain of "encouraging out-of-control immigration."
A few weeks later, the Spanish government announced that it would end so-called express deportations — the practice of immediately deporting migrants the moment they reach the Spanish border — after the European Court of Justice ruled that summary deportations were a violation of EU law.
In October 2017, the Strasbourg-based court ruled that Spain must pay €10,000 to two African migrants who were summarily deported after they scaled the fence at Melilla in August 2014. The EU court said that Spanish border police failed to verify the identity of the migrants, and failed to provide them with access to lawyers, translators or medical personnel. Spain's previous center-right government appealed the ruling, but the new Socialist government said that it would review that appeal and immediately end the practice of express deportations.
The government has justified the removal of the concertina wires on the grounds of human rights. Government spokeswoman Isabel Celaá said that "this government wants to remove the concertinas without losing any security." She added that "border control must be linked to solidarity and respect for human dignity." Celaá insisted that "you can have border security without hurting people."
Police and border patrols agents, however, have said that without concertina wires, the border will become even more vulnerable to mass incursions than it already is. They added that whenever there are mass attacks against the fences, police are usually outnumbered by the migrants seeking to enter Spain illegally.
The Spanish newspaper ABC reported that police, in private conversations, said that they were worried that the Socialist government in Madrid was prioritizing the wellbeing of migrants over the safety of law enforcement officers. They noted that while eleven officers were injured in the mass attack against the fence in Ceuta on August 30, when migrants attacked police with acid and mace, not a single one of the 155 migrants who managed to reach Spanish territory have been deported.
Spanish border police told ABC that the main function of the concertina wires is not aggressive, but deterrent:
"The concertinas prevent many people from thinking about jumping the fence and, in the event that someone tries or there is a mass jump, they also allow agents to gain some time since they slow down the progress of migrants."
The Senate spokesman of the center-right Popular Party, Ignacio Cosidó, warnedthat removing the concertina wires would be "a great irresponsibility" and that, in his opinion, this type of "gesture" would send the message that Spain now has an "open door" migration policy.
Santiago Abascal, leader of the Spanish conservative party Vox, the third-largest party in Spain, said that the Socialist government's plan was part of a broader effort to undermine national sovereignty in favor of globalist mass migration. He called for replacing the fences with concrete walls to better secure the border:
"The borders in Ceuta and Melilla are permanently violated by avalanches of immigrants. We are going to propose a reform of the immigration law to be able to expel an immigrant immediately if their documentation is not in order. We believe that the best protection is a concrete wall that is high enough for security forces to control the border."
Taking a page out of U.S. President Donald J. Trump's playbook, Abascal said that new wall should be paid for by Morocco: "It is Morocco which launches waves of clandestine immigrants to blackmail the European Union. Maybe they should pay for it."
On September 12, Vox Secretary General Javier Ortega Smith and Vox Parliamentary Spokesman Iván Espinosa de los Monteros presented a plan in the Spanish Congress to replace the "ineffective fences and concertinas" with a concrete wall that, due to its "thickness, strength and height" would make the borders at "Ceuta and Melilla borders impenetrable and impassable." They said that the wall should be paid for by Spain with "economic collaboration" from the European Union.
Ortega Smith said that proposal to build a wall "is not a propaganda slogan" but a necessity to curb illegal immigration. He explained that the current fences are ineffective because migrants can scale them and, from on top, "throw stones, acids and quicklime" on the border police below. Ortega Smith said that the walls would eliminate the need for concertina wire, an excuse that the Spanish left was using to profess outrage about inhumane treatment: "We do not want migrants to be cut, rather, we do not want them to scale the fence in the first place."
Vox parliamentary spokesman Iván Espinosa de los Monteros blamed the Socialist government for encouraging mass migration. "We are not against immigration," he said during an interview with Spanish public television. "We are not even against the illegal immigrant. It is not their fault that an irresponsible government has called them to come here illegally."

Syrian known to the police threatens family father and his children as well as the employees of a hospital with a knife - After being chased across town by the police, he was arrested

Yesterday evening, a man threatened several people with a knife and then robbed a car in Krefeld. Police arrested the allegedly mentally ill man after a short escape. Around 06:30 p.m. the man threatened several employees of a hospital on the street Dießemer Bruch with a knife. Since he was in a closed section of the hospital, he used the knife to escape. He went to the parking lot of a nearby hospital and forced a man to hand over the car while the knife was in front of him as he was fastening the seat belts to his children. He quickly pulled the two children out of the vehicle and handed it over to the obviously confused man. The latter broke through the closed barrier of the parking lot and fled at high speed towards Gath. Meanwhile, police patrol cars had arrived and chased him. When he stopped, the police officers overpowered him. They used pepper spray. The man is a 23-year-old Syrian who lives in Krefeld. He is already known to the police and is now back in hospital. The police and public prosecutor's office have begun investigations into the background to this incident.

Anti-Semitic Terror Attack: New Jersey kosher store was 'targeted', says mayor

The kosher grocery store in Jersey City which was the scene of a deadly shooting Tuesday was targeted by the two shooters, an ongoing investigation suggests according to Mayor Steven Fulop.

Tweeting Wednesday morning, Mayor Fulop confirmed that information collected during the investigation now supports the idea that the grocery in which the shooting took place was singled out for the attack.

“Based on our initial investigation (which is ongoing) we now believe the active shooters targeted the location they attacked. Due to an excess of caution the community may see additional police resources in the days/weeks ahead. We have no indication there are any further threats.”

Earlier, Jersey City Director of Public Safety James Shea said there was no indication the incident was terror-related.

Police later found a stolen U-Haul truck near the scene of the shooting, inside of which they found an incendiary device that has been turned over to the bomb squad for examination.

The two shooters, one male, one female, opened fire on Detective Joseph Seals in a cemetery Tuesday, killing him, before entering the JC Kosher Supermarket – Jersey City’s only kosher food outlet, located in the center of the city’s 70-family Hasidic community – and opening fire.

The owner of the grocery store, 33-year-old Leah Minda Ferencz, was killed in the shooting, along with 24-year-old Moshe Deutsch and a third civilian.

An hours-long standoff with police ended in a firefight that left both the shooters dead, three police officers wounded, and one civilian wounded.

WATCH: "Antifa" desecrates wreath for the fireman murdered in Augsburg, Germany

Petr Bystron, member of the German Parliament for the AfD, wanted to lay down a wreath for the killed fireman in Augsburg on Monday evening. It became a gauntlet run.. The spot where a 17-year-old Turk with a German passport killed the fireman had long been controlled by Antifa. Bystron was insulted, pushed, an Antifa supporter tore the funeral ribbon from the wreath, and the police had nothing better to do than to more or less lead the Bundestag politician away in order to establish his identity.See the whole incident in the video.

Germany's Deutsche Welle stokes antisemitism: The media outlet used term "Israel lobbyists" to describe its critics

The row between the media watchdog organization CAMERA and the German news outlet Deutsche Welle widened after CAMERA accused the publicly funded media group of stoking antisemitism. Deutsche Welle suggested that the American non-profit Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting are “Israel lobbyists” after the group compelled DW to correct a significant error in an article that falsely stated 600,000 Israeli settlers reside in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.CAMERA fired back at DW. “We’re appalled for a few reasons. One, we simply pointed out a factual error in their reporting, and their response has been to attack us for it. Two, we’re not a lobby, which would have taken almost no research to discover. And, three, the phrase ‘Israel Lobbyists’ has antisemitic connotations in German discourse. Only Israel is singled out as having lobbyists, “CAMERA’s Jonah Cohen told The Jerusalem Post on Monday. There are no Israeli settlers living in Gaza. Hamas, however, has taken two mentally challenged Israelis hostage and is refusing Red Cross access to the Israelis. Christoph Jumpelt, a spokesman for the DW, told the Post on Tuesday: “We generally comment on specific questions regarding our reporting,” adding that he “flatly rejects the accusation.” It is unclear what accusation he meant but it is believed to be the charge of antisemitism leveled by CAMERA. Jumpelt said that “Concerning the correction of a translation error, I would like to say that the correction was made at the time when some publications claimed that they had detected this mistake.” Ines Pohl, the editor-in-chief of DW, tweeted on Thursday that “Because of a translation error, the DW has for days been exposed to massive criticism of so-called Israel lobbyists. We strongly reject this accusation. Nevertheless, the mistake should not have happened - and we apologize for that.”The Post reported on the error in November. Pohl and Jumpelt declined to say who the “so-called Israel lobbyists” are and who wrote the correction article accusing its critics of being “Israel lobbyists.” Pohl’s Tweet electrified Twitter, with critics like the prominent German journalist Mirjam Fischer asking Pohl about her use of “Israel lobbyists.” Vijeta Uniyal, who is widely considered one of the leading experts on Israeli-India relations and an analyst of DW reporting of Israel, told the Post: "It is disingenuous of Deutsche Welle to paint this as an isolated incident. In recent months alone, the broadcaster has been called out multiple times for its apparent antisemitic coverage. The broadcaster has repeatedly resorted to antisemitic tropes and dog whistles to slander independent journalists and those pointing out its bias.” He added that “The Deutsche Welle denying antisemitism in its coverage by putting out a statement laced with antisemitic language says everything you need to know about this German state broadcaster.” Pohl's management of the DW has faced criticism from German Jews for publishing an allegeldy antisemitic article in 2018. The DW frequently publishes articles sympathetic to the terror organization Hezbollah, according to critics.

Seven ‘Youths’ Arrested After Fireman Beaten to Death at Christmas Market

A gang of seven “youths” has been arrested in the German city of Augsburg after an off-duty fireman was attacked and beaten to death outside of the city’s Christmas Market.

The fatal attack took place on Friday night as 49-year-old firefighter Roland S. was near the Christmas Market with his wife and another couple and got into an argument with the chief suspect, 17-year-old Halid S., who comes from a Turkish-Lebanese-German background, and his six friends, Bild reports.

The argument soon turned into full-on violence and saw the group of youths beat the man so viciously that he died on the way to hospital after the mob had fled.

The attack has shocked not only the city of Augsburg but also the entire region of Bavaria. Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann stated: “The terrible attack has shaken many people in Augsburg and beyond. All the more important was the fast and successful criminal investigation of the Augsburger Criminal Police.”

Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer also commented on the incident stating: “What has really upset me is that a peaceable citizen was killed in Augsburg, simply beaten to death.”

On Monday, 150 firefighters gathered at the site of the attack to mourn Roland S. with a note at the vigil stating: “He came as a saviour and went as an angel.”

At 6 pm on Monday all fire and rescue stations across Germany set up candles to mourn the death of the 49-year-old who went by the nickname “Roli”, according to the German Fire Brigade Union.

Germany has seen a number of random acts of violence by youths and migrants this year including an incident in the city of Gelsenkirchen in which a gang of 20 to 30 young men, described as being predominantly migrants, attacked locals at a train station.

Just a month later, five German cities saw five separate stabbing attacks on the same day.

Jew-Hate in Germany: A "aggressive mood" within a particular group

Last month, a woman was attacked in Bavaria for being Jewish. A man heard her two sons speaking Hebrew and recognized them as being Israeli. He then yelled in Arabic “Jew” and threw a rock, striking the woman in the head. Fortunately, the woman was only lightly injured.

A similar incident occurred before a discotheque in Germany. A man was speaking Hebrew with friends when a stranger, for no apparent reason, punched him in the face. The attacker fled.

“On the continent things are happening we haven’t seen any more since 1933,” said Berlin lawyer Nathan Gelbert before a committee of the Israeli parliament in a special sitting, as reported in Die Welt newspaper.

According to a study by the World Jewish Congress (WJC), which represents a hundred countries, “every fourth German harbors…anti-Semitic thoughts.” But the study does not break down by ethnic group or religion those who think thus.

In July last summer, the study polled 1,300 people. Other results include 41 per cent think Jews talk too much about the holocaust, 28 per cent believe Jews have too much power in the economy, 26 per cent believe they have too much power in world politics and 48 per cent believe Jews are more loyal to Israel than to Germany.

According to the study, “there is a growing anti-Semitism perceived in the overwhelming majority of the population.”

“Anti-Semitism has reached a crisis point in Germany. It is time all of Germany takes a position and fights anti-Semitism head on,’ says the WJC president.

While police classify the political motives for half of the attacks and expressions of anti-Semitism as unknown, many appear to be coming from the Muslim population.

Such was the case with two attacks against rabbis in Berlin. One, a 55-year-old rabbi, easy to identify as Jewish because of his clothing, was beaten to the ground from behind by four youths police said had Arab backgrounds. He was one of three rabbis attacked within a few weeks.

This rabbi was chairman of an education center and, ironically, a board member of Jewish Forum for Democracy and Against Anti-Semitism. The president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany called it “a vicious attack against Judaism in Germany.”

The other rabbi, a 53-year-old Berliner, was walking along the street with his six-year-old daughter when four youths asked him “Are you a Jew?” And then physically assaulted him. They insulted him, his faith, his mother and made a death threat towards his daughter before leaving. Police believe these attackers were also of Arab background. Both attacks are being investigated as hate crimes.

Anti-Semitism is becoming so prevalent in Berlin that for the first time ever an anti-Semitism official was assigned last September to the city’s prosecutor’s office. There were 1083 anti-Semitic incidents recorded in Berlin the past year, 14 per cent more than the previous year.

“There is a growing and hardening anti-Semitism problem in Berlin,” said the city’s justice minister, Dirk Behrendt.

Anti-Semitic acts in Berlin alone have apparently more than doubled since the last year, Die Welt reports, going up 155 per cent from 18 to 46. And threats increasing 77 per cent from 26 to 46. But these are only the reported ones. Police believe 18 per cent originated from the extreme right and nine per cent from anti-Israeli activists such as leftists.

The attacks are many and are increasing. Such as the one against the woman who went shopping and the shopkeeper saw the Star of David on her key ring. He yelled at her “Piss off, you Jewish slut.” And then moved from behind the counter, causing the woman to flee. Another occurred in a fitness gym in Freiburg where a young man wearing a kippa was attacked from behind, being hit in the head. The attacker tore his kippa off and tried to tear it apart. When he didn’t succeed, he spit in it and threw it in the garbage.

“I was afraid he was going to do me in,” said the young man.

The attacker fled because he knew the police had been called. The victim said he always wears a hat over his kippa going through downtown Berlin where such things as “Free Palestine” and “You are dead” have been yelled at him.

In another incident, in a subway in the early morning, two man started hitting the doors and glass, yelling “Israel must burn. All Jews must burn.” When a man tried to talk to them, he was attacked.

Such developments are making “daily life for those affected particularly difficult….,” according to Die Welt.

Moreover, it is Jewish and Israeli institutions that are most targeted for anti-Semitic attacks. People come in second, according to a report presented by the Information Place for Anti-Semitism Berlin.

There is a large anti-Semitism problem among the Muslim population in Berlin as in other German cities. The Central Council of Jews in Germany has registered “an aggressive mood particularly among Muslims” towards Jews.

“In the large, urban neighborhoods with an overwhelming Muslim population there is already for a long time a serious (anti-Semitic) problem,” states the Amadeu-Antonio Foundation.

One reason for this is that hate-filled, anti-Israeli broadcasts, such as Hezbollah’s, are received via satellite into European living rooms from the Middle East, stating Israel has no right to exist.

According to the German-Arab Center, Muslim hatred of Jews is also passed from the parents to the children.

“The parents follow daily the conflict at home, also if they are living in Germany. They are enraged what’s happening in their homeland. This rage and hate they pass on to their children,” said a Center official.

Such hatred exhibits itself in anti-Semitic slogans at anti-Israel demonstrations. Among the more charming are: Israel, killer of children; Death to Israel; Death to Jews; You Jews are beasts; Jews are pigs; and Jew, Jew cowardly pig. And there are always signs with the Star of David crossed out.

Germany is not viewed by Jews as being an anti-Semitic country. The government, for example, supports Israel and has rebuilt synagogues destroyed by the Nazis such as the main synagogue in Mainz. It was destroyed by the National Socialists in 1938 and rebuilt by the government in 2010 in exactly the same spot.

“New synagogues are a symbol of a trust for Jews in the federal republic,” said Germany’s president at the synagogue’s dedication, while the president of Central Council of Jews in Germany called it a “miracle of a living Judaism in Germany.”

But government officials and police appear to be helpless against Muslim anti-Semitism. Police are often accused of just standing around when demonstrators break the law, yelling hate-filled anti-Semitic slogans.

For this reason, a commentary in Die Welt states it is not possible everywhere in Germany to go to a synagogue waring a kippa on Friday afternoon. At the synagogue, Jews pray behind bullet-proof glass while police stand on guard outside.

“Europe is overrun by anti-Semitism,” said the owner of a security firm that sends Israeli ex-soldiers to protect Jewish institutions in Germany… “I sometimes have the feeling that we find ourselves shortly before a new pogrom.”

One Berlin synagogue member perhaps summed up the situation of Jews best when he stated:

“Seventy years after the Holocaust we are living again behind ghetto walls; and indeed not to lock us up, but in order to protect us.”

Germany: Iraqi arrested for raping 13-year-old girl

The public prosecutor's office in Tübingen and the criminal investigation department in Tübingen are investigating a 28-year-old man who is suspected of having committed several robberies and sexual crimes to the detriment of minors since December 2018.The suspect is already in custody. According to previous criminal investigations, the suspect had probably lured a 13-year-old girl into his apartment in Tübingen last December. There, he is said to have performed sexual acts on the dressed child. Approximately four weeks later, he is also said to have made alcohol and narcotics available to a 16-year-old girl in his apartment at the time of the crime and then raped her. In addition, the 28-year-old is suspected of having kicked a 14-year-old on the evening of 24.08.2019 in the area of the Blaue Bridge in Tübingen. At the defendant's demand, the victim handed him his baseball cap. According to the current state of investigations, he is said to have snatched the Bluetooth box from the hands of the teenager's twelve-year-old companion immediately afterwards. The two boys were only acquainted with the suspect. Both the sexual and robbery offences were not reported to the police by the victims until several weeks later. The subsequent investigations by the criminal investigation department led to an urgent suspicion of the 28-year-old. The public prosecutor's office in Tübingen then issued an arrest warrant against the accused, who had already left his home address at that time and had apparently been without a fixed address ever since. Last Thursday, however, he was arrested at Rottenburg station. At his current location in Rottenburg, the officers also found and confiscated the 14-year-old boy's  baseball cap.Last Thursday, however, he was arrested at Rottenburg station. At his current location in Rottenburg, the officers also found and confiscated the 14-year-old boy's blackmailed baseball cap. The 28 years old, who is an Iraqi citizen, was brought before the magistrate on the same day at the Tübingen district court. The judge issued an arrest warrant and the man was sent to a prison. The criminal investigation continues.

The Commentary: The Murder of Augsburg and Merkel's Failure


Mrs. Merkel, 

what else can one say? A few weeks before the silent night, it has become a fatal fact in Augsburg that a 49-year-old German firefighter can no longer spend Christmas with his loved ones. And again a person dies in your country, is taken from his family, robbed of his future, becomes a victim of so-called environmental violence. This time a fireman, a man who risked his life to serve his fellow citizens, an idealist, a knight in shining armour.In the presence of his wife, he was beaten to death in the bloodlust of perpetrators known to the police. The news of his death is spreading through the media and social networks, hundreds of thousands of people are touched by his fate and have every right to ask why this innocent man died? Because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, is the rather simple answer. Because in December 2019, on his way home from a Christmas market, he walked freely on German streets, felt safe in the streets of your country. According to initial findings, it was a "chance encounter" between the victim and his murderers. Coincidence, Mrs. Merkel, no longer happens in view of the recurring individual cases. How far has your own Germany degenerated in the meantime to the point that as a righteous person one is no longer safe on the streets of your cities? And the perpetrators' motive? Quite simple: violence, brutality, lack of empathy, cruelty. Perhaps a public prosecutor or an expert of your judicial system will be available who might find verbose a psychological disorder of the perpetrators already known to the police, in order not to have to admit the manifold problems of your immigration and security policy. And what do you do, Mrs. Merkel? You are keeping quiet! And what do you do, Mrs. Merkel? You are keeping quiet! When your minister (Altmaier, Ed.) Humpty Dumpty fell over the stairs, your recovery wishes were sooner in the hospital than the injured patient himself. When one of your fellow countrymen is one of the hundreds of dead in your catastrophic social and security policy, you keep quiet. In lack of empathy and sympathy, you are probably closer to the perpetrators in your stubbornness than you think. You not only fail politically, but also humanly. 

Merry Christmas 2019!

'Deadly Delusions': Europe's Deradicalization Programs

It was a tragedy of good intentions. "Jack Merritt died in the London Bridge attack. Don't forget what he stood for", Emma Goldberg wrote in The New York Times. Merritt was one of the two victims of Usman Khan, an Islamic terrorist who struck on London Bridge on November 29. The other victim was Saskia Jones, a student at the conference targeted by the jihadist. They both dreamed of working to save and protect their murderer.
London had been hosting the fifth anniversary of Learning Together, an event in which ex-prisoners, staff members, students and criminology experts came from all over the country to celebrate the success of their initiative to deradicalize jihadists. Khan had been present as a model of the recovery program. In 2012, Khan was sentenced to prison for plotting to blow up first the London Stock Exchange, then London's Mayor at the time, Boris Johnson, and then the London Eye ferris wheel. According to the Daily Telegraph, Learning Together used Khan as a "case study" on how reintegration programs in society work. He had even written a poem and a note of thanks to the organizers, on a computer made available to him by his tutors.
Merritt, one of the two victims, had worked with him while Khan was behind bars in Cambridgeshire. The pictures from Fishmongers' Hall a few minutes before the terror attack testify as to all the good will of the rehabilitation program. Merrittwas the first person who tried to stop Khan during his killing spree. Moments before he attacked, Khan was pictured sitting quietly through the conference session. Many considered him a kind of "star pupil" of the deradicalization program.
Khan had also been quoted in one of Learning Together's newsletters as saying that the group "has a special place in his heart":
"It is more than just an organisation, helping to provide learning of individual academic subjects. For me it's main benefit is bringing people together, through the means of learning. Learning Together is about opening minds, unlocking doors, and giving voice to those who are shut down, hidden from the rest of us. It helps to include those who are generally excluded. This is what Learning Together means to me".
Khan also gave an interview to the BBC, in which he condemned the stigmatization he was suffering:
"I've been born and bred in England, in Stoke-On-Trent, in Cobridge, and all the community knows me and they will know, if you ask them, they will know like these labels what they're putting on us, like terrorist, this, that, they will know I ain't no terrorist".
The latest attack in London was a lethal mix of religious dissimulation and Western naïveté. It also, one hopes, buries all the British illusions of deradicalizing jihadists. As the Times reported, the Behavioural Insights Team (BIT), the so-called "nudge unit" formerly part of the Cabinet Office, examined 33 deradicalization programs across the UK and found that only two were supposedly successful. The British criminologist Simon Cottee has blamed "liberal professors' deadly delusions about curing terrorists".
France had already tried it out. A bipartisan report in the French Senate had condemned the French deradicalization program as a "total fiasco", in the words of Philippe Bas, a senator from the center-right Republicans party. When Senators Esther Benbassa and Catherine Troendlé, both leading the task force, visited the deradicalization center housed in the Château de Pontourny, they found only one resident at the facility.
France also has suffered through the failure of the monitoring mechanism. Many terror attacks in the last few years have been conducted by jihadists who were already flagged in France's special counter-terrorism database: the attack at Christmas market in Strasbourg, the attack at the church in Normandy and the attack at the supermarket in Trèbes, to recall just a few. Recently, a jihadi attack took place inside Paris police headquarters. The terrorist, Mickaël Harpon, worked, in fact, in the unit tracking terrorists.
All over Europe, none of the deradicalization programs has proven effective. "There are not enough reliable data to reach definitive conclusions about the short-term, let alone the long-term, effectiveness of most existing deradicalization programs," a RAND report concluded. It might be beyond the reach of Western states to deradicalize people who, like the London Bridge terrorist, wore a fake suicide vest to invite being killed by the police and becoming a "martyr".
So what does one do with these jihadists? Trusting them can be deadly, as in London. Leaving them in prison might means keeping them as part of "one of the most important places of radicalization". Europe does not have a Guantanamo Bay, a legal limbo which, after 9/11, was useful for the US war on terror. Gitmo could also be useful now, when Europe is dealing with the return en masse of ISIS's foreign fighters.
According to the annual Europol report, 45% of Britons who travelled to Syria and Iraq to join ISIS, have already come back to their home country. Of 714 prisoners former prisoners who were held at Guantanamo Bay, 124 (16.9%) have returned to terrorist activities, while 94 more are suspected by the Defense Intelligence Agencyof having returned to terrorism. Deporting these extremists from Europe is extremely controversial for many European politicians. UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn was filmed protesting the extradition of British terror suspects, including two aides to Osama bin Laden. The UK fought for years with Europe over the deportation to Jordan of the radical imam Abu Qatada.
So, what is Europe's solution? Closing one's eyes and hoping for the best is probably not affordable. Too many people have already died on Europe's streets.
"Now I am much more mature and want to live my life as a good Muslim and also a good citizen of Britain", Khan had written before killing two young British citizens.
A recent UK government report warned that British imams in 48 Islamic schools have been promoting violence and intolerance. It is British society that must be deradicalized, not the jihadists. Britain's best-known hate preacher, Anjem Choudary, recently was released from prison and now walks the streets of London a free man. Recently, a picture surfaced of London Bridge terrorist Usman Khan with his "personal friend", Anjem Choudary. The imam who allegedly radicalized the terrorist who attacked in Paris police headquarters is based in Gonesse and is still free to preach.
Deradicalization works only if it defies this suicidal Western political correctness by tackling the real causes of this kind of terrorism, which are in the Islamic texts. "Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them", says the Koran (9:5). Usman Khan apparently saw Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones as "unbelievers", not as "rehabilitators". If we do not change our rules of engagement, more of the same will follow.

Germany: Visitors to a Christmas market beaten to death by a group of migrants

A married couple visits the Christmas market in Augsburg accompanied by another friendly couple. The four then cross Augsburg's Königsplatz square late on Friday evening, where they meet a group of seven young men. After this presumably accidental encounter, the 49-year-old husband is dead.

A person who made himself known to us as an eyewitness had come back to the place of terror. He told us what had happened. According to the eyewitness's testimony, the group of 7 people - from whom the victim was later approached - ran at a late hour from the street Annastrasse to Königsplatz square, shouting. A person who made himself known to us as an eyewitness had come back to the place of terror.

According to the eyewitness's testimony, the group of 7 people - from whom the victim was later approached - ran at a late hour from the Annastrasse to Königsplatz, shouting. The 49-year-old fireman and his friend, one year older, are said to have asked the young men to be quieter. Instead of stopping, the young men then kicked around with cans and were admonished again, whereupon parts of the group suddenly beat the two men. When their victim had collapsed, the perpetrators, dressed in black, fled towards the train station.

The arrested perpetrators are a man with a German passport and other nationalities, probably a Turk with a so-called dual passport, and a Southeastern European, thus Albanian, Bosnian, etc.

In Hopfgarten in the Brixen valley (Kitzbühel district), the parish church was devastated, according to police reports. On Saturday afternoon, unidentified persons in Hopfgarten threw down several statues of saints, candlesticks and the tabernacle cross from the main altar, a side altar and the chapel of the Virgin Mary.In addition, a large copper holy water container was poured out and damaged. The extent of the damage has not yet been quantified. In the parish church of St. John, unknown persons also stole from the statue of John the Baptist, which was attached to the baptismal font, an approximately 70 centimetre large brown wooden cross-staff and from a statue of the Virgin a golden 60 centimetre large wooden sceptre during the period between Friday morning and Saturday afternoon.

French Rapper Brags About ‘Great Replacement’ In New Song

A French rapper from a migrant-background has released a song bragging about “the Great Replacement” theory of rapid demographic change in the Western world.

The song, entitled ‘The Great Replacement’, was released earlier this week by French rapper Younès, who states in the lyrics, “The great replacement? It’s your daughter who likes me, who will make me children.”

“The great replacement is me, then them, then you. The big bad guys are us,” the rapper states, going on to add, “I’m rare, like the whites at Gare du Nord” in reference to the train station in Northern Paris where an attack by radical Islamic terrorists in 2017 was foiledby police.

Originally from the commune of Mont-Saint-Aignan, and previously known as “Yoon on the Moon”, the 24-year-old former law student has previously claimed to have been inspired by various rappers including Médine Zaouiche, who became infamous for his anti-French lyrics.

Last year, Médine, who released an album entitled Jihad, drew the ire of many when he planned to perform a concert at the Bataclan nightclub in Paris where 90 people were brutally murdered by radical Islamic terrorists in 2015.

The “Great Replacement” theory was first developed by French author Renaud Camus to describe the rapidly shifting demographic changes across France and other countries due to mass migration.

The theory, which is characterised as a “conspiracy theory” in much of the French and international mainstream media, is believed by at least a quarter of the French population, according to a survey released in February of this year.

The validity of the theory has also been mentioned or championed by several notable figures on the French right, including former populist MP and niece of Marine Le Pen, Marion Marechal.

At a major right-wing conference held in Paris in September, Ms Marechal called on conservatives and populists to resist the Great Replacement, saying, “The first major challenge, the most vital, is the Great Replacement, this demographic countdown, which already makes us realise the possibility of becoming a minority in the land of our ancestors.”

How Russia Is Helping Corbyn Win Against Boris

Austria: Turkish-born Social Democratic politician arrested for pimping

In Lower Austria, a high functionary of the Socialist Youth was temporarily arrested. The public prosecutor's accusation is of pimping. The young politician with Turkish roots is by no means an unknown to the public. For years he kept the public on their toes with dubious tales of racism. He always presented himself as a victim with imaginative narratives. For example, the young people in the forest of his community would be singing in front of a swastika flag. First of all: The suspect confessed according to information of the authorities during the interrogation to a large extent. At least in October and November of this year, he had engaged young women in prostitution in the Amstetten area. The ladies are supposed to belong to the drug scene. When the accusations became public, the young politician resigned from all his positions. "My task is to unite people," he wrote on Facebook as chairman of his local group of the Socialist Youth in 2017. It can be ruled out that this meant the crime he was accused of.With respectable 76,000 followers he also asks for donations. He presents himself as a peace-loving, liberal man with a great distance to religious atrocities. If you dig a little deeper, you will also find connections to left-wing extremist Antifa.His girlfriend's parents had criticized him racistally, among other things because he couldn't even "eat properly with a knife and fork". And then to admit, yes, he really couldn't. But he could afford a pizza and share it with the needy. Among his fans on Facebook is a certain Arigona Z., who had become very popular in the media since 2007. (The lady was finally deported with her family after 110 court decisions and has been living happily since 2010 in Austria again at the instigation of Foreign Minister Michael Spindelegger (ÖVP)).In 2018, the socialist was quoted by the mainstream media.His municipality would have a racism problem. For example, Freedom Party sympathizers allegedly insulted him with " fucking Turk, fucking Jew!" In addition, young people from his community would meet in the forest to sing in front of a swastika flag. The village has an "extremely big problem with racists". No matter how credible the accusations seem, the man was given a platform in the newspapers. The mayor of the municipality was forced to defend his inhabitants. The statements of the SJ functionary would in no way reflect how he would get to know the people in the village on a daily basis. There was further excitement at the turn of the year 2018/2019. Allegedly, the social democrat of Turkish origin had been insulted with racist comments on social media. He invited people to "drink punch against racism" and donated the profit to a regional refugee organisation. Now the personality and legal compliance of the young politician, who staged himself as an endless victim, are on trial. After the interrogation, at which most of the accusations were confessed, the police set him free again. There were no other reasons for his arrest, such as the danger of escape or the danger of collusion.With the indictment to be expected shortly, the political career of the Social Democratic Party's hopeful is also likely to come to an end. A statement by feminist organizations or by the Social Democrat women is not yet known.

Austria: Turkish migrant ran over ex-wife with a BMW car

A 31-year-old migrant allegedly tried to kill his ex-wife last Thursday in the industrial district of Felixdorf, Vienna. After that, he caused an accident. The woman is hospitalized with serious injuries. Apparently, the man tried to run his ex-wife over by car. He passed the 30-year-old woman after work, sped his black BMW car and hit the woman who was thrown to the ground. Then he tried to escape with high speed.According to media reports, the migrant crashed into a tree or a house wall and the vehicle was severely damaged, unimpressed by this, the "Austrian with Turkish roots" simply left the wrecked car behind, jumped into the car of the seriously injured woman and continued to flee. The vehicle used for the crime is said to be registered to the woman as well.A little later he was arrested in Leobersdorf ( municipality of Baden ). According to the press release of the Provincial Police Headquarters of Lower Austria, he did not confess during the interrogation. The woman suffered injuries of indefinite severity and was taken to the Viennese Neustadt Provincial Hospital by ambulance after being cared for on site.

Austria: Social Democratic politician sentenced for membership in Islamic terrorist organisation

The 44-year-old convict has a turbulent political past. In addition to his function as Social Democratic SPÖ substitute community councillor, he was youth officer of the Islamic religious community Linz (IRG). The man is also active in the ALIF (Austria Linz Islamic Federation), which is considered "nationalistic and fundamentalistic" by the security authorities. The convicted terrorist with Turkish roots has Austrian citizenship. When the scandal arose in 2017, the man was still a teacher of religion in Wels. State school board president Enzenhofer removed him from the teaching profession and imposed a ban on teaching. The SPÖ also dissociated itself from him "by mutual agreement" in August 2017. The accusations were serious; the courts had been ruling against the accused since 2018. By publishing a video in which the Islamist jihad was praised, he would have fulfilled the requirements of membership in a terrorist organisation as well as membership in a criminal organisation. The film was publicly available on the political official's Facebook profile from 2013 to 2017, with a supporting commentary. The video shows flags of the Islamic state, glorified by the then IS leader Omar Al Baghdadi. The text literally said "My brother, what's the matter with you that you don't want to go to war...""Brother" is an interesting keyword in this context, because the brother of the legally convicted was active in the Austrian People's Party ÖVP at the same time. He was also excluded from the party. The case shows well how radically Islamist persons in Austria engage in democratic parties. The parties did not examine the background of the men, nor did they look more closely at their public appearances and statements. At the time, commentators in the social media speculated that it was probably more important for the parties to fulfil a certain quota of migrants than to question the democratic suitability of their functionaries. An accusation that can hardly be denied when one considers that the IS supporters' video was publicly shown for four years.It is noteworthy that the leftist newspaper Standard called the man the "head of an Islamist association. Last Wednesday, the case of the ex-religion teacher was dealt with once again before the Higher Regional Court. The court had to decide on the sentence, the facts had - as explained above - already been legally decided.Surprisingly, the court increased the prison sentence by two. Instead of the six months in the first instance, this time the judges sentenced to twelve months. In view of the fact that the maximum sentence prescribed by law is 10 years' imprisonment, the verdict was still rather lenient. The Islamic associations for which the man was active (or possibly is still active today) have never distanced themselves from him. As the newspaper Volksblatt aktuell reports, the heads of the IRG and the ALIF visited the convicted man a few days before the trial and provocatively published photos of the meeting.

Austria: Was a terrorist attack plotted? Major raid in mosque

A large contingent of police raided the mosque "Savjet" ("Mosque of admonition") at Uhlplatz square in the Josefstadt district of Vienna on Friday afternoon. The reason for the raid is unclear, the newspaper Krone reports.The operation involved dozens of police officers, on-call units and alien police. Even before the Muslims had terminated the Friday prayer, the prayer house was surrounded by the officials. The streets around the site have also been cordoned off.The entrances have been locked. The reasons for the police operation have been explained in different ways. There were rumours about a possible terror attack.The entrances have been locked. The reasons for the police operation have been explained in different ways. There were rumours about a possible terror. The police speak of a "usual detailed checks" of the worshippers.The Krone newspaper quotes a regular mosque visitor who speaks of migrants who "enter and leave without valid papers". It is unclear whether or how many "illegals" could be spotted in the mosque.

Europe: School Tests Show Huge Gaps Between Migrants and Natives

According to data from the new Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) study, immigrants in Austria still perform far below their native counterparts. In Germany, 20 per cent of 15-year-olds can barely read.

The proportion of migrant students in Austria has also increased over the last 20 years, from 11 per cent in 200 to 23 per cent in 2019. During this period, migrant children have consistently scored worse than native Austrian children in testing, Kronen Zeitungreports.

Since the height of the migrant crisis in 2015, there has been a consistent 63-point difference in testing between migrants and natives in Austria, one of the highest gaps in Europe.

Finland scored the highest in testing differences between migrants and natives with a 92-point difference, with Sweden coming in second with an 83-point difference.

Finland scored the second-highest on the PISA test in Europe, with Estonia scoring the highest.

The testing gap between natives and migrants in Austria is largely equal to that of neighbouring Germany, which despite having a robust economy has seen declines in several educational areas including reading, where around 20 per cent of 15-year-olds cannot read at a primary school level.

Kiel education researcher Olaf Köller told German media the results were a “cause for alarm”. Mr Köller stated: “The so-called risk group, so 15-year-olds who can not spell and count correctly, is at 21 per cent again — almost as large as the PISA shock two decades ago.”

Students in Germany were also asked questions about their reading habits and only a quarter said that they read as a hobby, while 34 per cent said reading was a waste of time.

Integration of migrant children has been a significant difficulty in Germany. Heinz-Peter Meidinger, president of the German Teachers Association, stated last year that the quality of learning had declined in schools with a large number of students who do not speak proficient German.

In the city of Duisburg, it was revealed earlier this year that only 8.2 per cent of children in elementary schools with migration backgrounds could speak the German language fluently.

The most tragic thing is that the couple have a son who is five years old. The investigations continue.

South Tyrol: African stops bus and attacks driver

A violent incident occurred on Wednesday evening in Perathoner Street in Bolzano. According to the Bolzano police headquarters, an 18-year-old man from Gambia stopped a city bus and then attacked the bus driver. The 18-year-old African danced with a colleague in the middle of the busy street, making the bus stop. When the bus driver asked the two men to clear the road again, they smashed the windshield of the bus, among other things. In the meantime, the bus driver let all passengers get off and called the police. Shortly afterwards, the 18-year-old attacked him directly and punched him to the nose. The African's companion fled in the meantime.The officials of the law enforcement officers were very soon on the spot due to the increased number of people who are currently in Bolzano because of the Christmas market. But the young African was not calmed by this either and attacked the police officers. It was only with great difficulty that the policemen managed to arrest the man. He had already been previously convicted and the police commissioner imposed a residency prohibition on him.

George Soros: A New Kind of Tyrant?

By Diana Mary Sitek

The venomous careers of Hitler and Stalin provoked the study of totalitarian regimes as the very epitome of evil, depriving their citizens of freedom and of life itself. A state captured by a demagogue is considered a sure sign of danger ahead -- hence the alleged justification by the Left for their hysteria over “rabble rouser” Donald Trump’s election. Overlooked until more recently are the unelected, bloated bureaucratic fiefdoms and regulatory encroachments of both national and global government and non-governmental institutions, which have created the opportunity for a sinister, large scale violation of political power.

This new abuse was foreshadowed in the career of FBI architect and director, the corrupt J. Edgar Hoover. It has been notched up to a planetary level of hyper-coordination by George Soros as preliminary to the installation of his global Open Society. In this grandiose plan, state governments (specifically the USA) will be reduced to the level of relay stations for a supranational, Sauron-like centralization of power.

What unites the totalitarian and the new tyrant are three personality characteristics, proposed by Professor John D. Mayer in his 1993 article, “The Emotional Madness of the Dangerous Leader.” The first is indifference. The tyrant is consumed by a single-minded, fanatical purpose and has no regard for the suffering wreaked on others during its implementation. The second is intolerance of those whose opinions differ, facilitated through control of the media, secret and insider knowledge, revenge against anyone who thwarts, and a paranoid mania to shut down all opposition. The third character trait (the foundation of the previous two), is psychopathic grandiosity. The power-abuser assumes a messianic pose of unifying society under a utopian plan and persuading others to participate. The very intensity of the tyrant’s narcissism is transferred to vulnerable supporters eliciting a narcotic rush of enthusiasm.

What is easily overlooked is that the sham scheme is not a political health remedy, but a device for maintaining the megalomaniac’s sense of personal omnipotence. In Soros’ own words, “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. In fact, my grandfather was actually paranoid.” Soros seems disarming in his frankness. But delusions of grandeur preclude self-knowledge, as Soros’ nextstatements reveal. “I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”

Soros has spilled bucketloads of words proclaiming he is “amoral,” “self-interested,” and that “normal rules do not apply” to him. “I am unnatural. I am a sort of deux ex machina. I’m very comfortable with my public persona, because it is the one I have created myself.” And this from the man who controls politicians and bureaucrats like a boss giving dictation to his secretary. This is the man who has perfected the subversion of governments, who has robbed failing states, and lavishly endowed every organization and movement destructive of traditional Western society, from abolishing the Electoral College to abolishing life itself if it is in utero, drug-addicted, or senile. His ambition is without borders-- “The Soviet Empire is now the Soros Empire.” “I’m the Pope’s boss now.” And so on, ad nauseum. Yet, like other tyrants, he is untouchable. Those he has made richer and more powerful protect him.

In March 1933 the Germans voted. They could have voted for the moderate Center Christian party. Instead they voted in Hitler. ‘Deplorable’ Americans however confounded Soros by not voting for “What can we do for you, George?” Hillary Clinton. Yet where are the congressional and Senate investigations into Soros? Where is the RICO indictment? Governments have been bought. The media has been bought. The Soros NGO empire operates an invasive, parasitic web currently devouring the body politic of the USA and many other nations besides.

What Trump’s election has revealed is the limitation of the Presidency in withstanding the transfer of power to unelected, publicly unaccountable bureaucrats, and venal politicians, more concerned with their benefices than their constituents. That void has allowed Soros to install himself as de facto puppet-master. We require bureaucracy, and we cannot prevent the existence of associations, but there is an urgent need for reform by abolishing permanency in government and establishing citizens’ tribunals of appeal against abuses of administrative power.

Recently in an interview on his simpering NPR, Soros confessed he wasunprepared for the populist opposition to his insurrectionary agenda. Let us continue our opposition. Let us demand Soros be investigated and brought to justice as conditional for obtaining our vote. Those with connection to him must be banned from public office, and his assets frozen. Then his parasitical minions will shrivel, like leeches desiccated by a pinch of salt. If not, although we may escape the mass slaughter of the twentieth century, it will be at the cost of vassalage beneath a tyrant like George Soros.
