Asylum seekers in search of gays in Berlin

by Editorial February 8, 2016 0 comments

First there was the German women were subjected to massive sexual abuse of asylum seekers and migrants. Now is the turn of the German gays – an amateur video on YouTube showing the asylum seekers in search of gay men in Berlin.

No one wants to talk openly about the migrations from North Africa and the Middle East have brought with them a culture of death in Europe – where women and homosexuals are the first to be sacrificed. Sexmob in Cologne on New Year’s Eve has attracted everyone’s disgust – now the The gays turn to face the implacable hatred that aggressive young men from North Africa and the Middle East takes the hit.

In recent days, an amateur video on Youtube has spread virally in social media. The film shows the terrifying scenes where asylum seekers from a refugee facility moves in the district Kottbusser Tor in Berlin – in a reckless chase to mistreat gays who are out in the city’s nightlife to entertain themselves just an ordinary Friday night. In the film, asylum seekers with weapons in the hands move through the streets to locate – and attack unsuspecting gay men. No passers dare speak up.

Mainly Muslims disturb Minute of Silence for Paris Victims

Fleur Nollet of the Foundation for School and Safety has said that mainly Muslim pupils, as well as some others, have disturbed the minute of silence for the victims of the Paris attacks in a number of schools.

At one school a boy shouted Allahu Akbar. She expressed her worry about the fact that various youngsters say that the Jews and Americans are behind the attacks in Paris. Nollet said that they pick this up from Youtube and conspiracy theories they hear of. Nollet also said that rightwing extremists among the pupils say that Muslims should leave the Netherlands.

ATHEIST PROFESSOR ADMITS ISLAM GETS FREE PASS FROM CRITICISM DUE TO FEAR OF VIOLENCE…….

This is not the first time outright fear of Islamic reprisal has been admitted as a prime motivating factor for not criticizing Islamic themes, symbols and the ideology itself. Award winning documentary film maker Martin Himel experienced exactly that during the filming of Massacring Truth. I received permission from Himel to upload that portion to Youtube:

Atheist On Why He Doesn’t Criticize Islam: ‘Straight Up Fear’

“I would never write the same kind of stuff that I do about certain religions as I would about Islam.”

During a panel discussion on religious liberty last week at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., prominent atheist professor Phil Zuckerman declared what we’ve all known but that many still refuse to admit: it’s acceptable to criticize Christians but not Muslims because Christians won’t violently retaliate, reports CNS News.

Also on the panel was Kirsten Powers, a Democratic pundit and recent convert to Catholicism, who questioned why the left targets Christians who oppose same-sex marriage but take a hands-off stance toward Muslims for the same belief. She cited Steven Crowder’s hidden video recordings made earlier this year in which Muslim bakers in Michigan refused his request to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding:

“If these had been Christian bakeries, it would have been on the front page of the New York Times, so I’m wondering why we’re able to have this amicable, disagreement with Muslims for having this view. Why are we not able to do that with Christians?

Zuckerman, a professor of secular studies at Pitzer College in Claremont, California, responded:

“I absolutely agree that it is okay for those on the left to critique, mock, deride Christianity, but Islam gets a free pass, which is so strange, because if you care about women’s rights, if you care about human rights, if you care about gay rights, then really Islam is much more problematic – sorry to paint Islam with a huge brush – and much more devastating.

“As an atheist – where on planet Earth is the death penalty meted out to atheists? It’s only in, I think, 24 Muslim countries.

“Where have human rights flourished the most? In Christian nations.

“I see Christianity as a great friend of secular culture. I see Islam as much more of a threat, much more debilitating. I’m not talking about Muslim individuals that I happen to sit next to on an airplane or are my neighbors. I’m talking about doctrines and those that have the power to enforce those doctrines in the form of Sharia law.

“I would never write the same kind of stuff that I do about certain religions – Judaism, Christianity, LDS, whatever – as I would about Islam – just straight up fear.

“I know what keeps me from critiquing Islam on my blog is just fear. I’ve got three kids, so I know I can say anything about Christianity or Mormonism, and I’m not living in fear, which is a testament to Christianity and Mormonism, and that’s wonderful. Thank you.”

IN SWEDEN: ASSYRIAN FEARING FOR HIS FUTURE SAYS “ISLAMIC STATE FLAG SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE THE SWASTIKA”…….

Treating Islam as the inherently intolerant, violent, political ideology that it is, would go a long way in helping to defeat it. 

The white banner at the top of the flag reads: “There is no god but Allah. Mohammad is the messenger of Allah.” The islamic shahadah, the confession of faith. This is what the Assyrian interviewed would want equated with the symbol of German National Socialism, the swastika. It works for me.

 Islamic State

“I hope that people can view the IS flag in the same way as the swastika. Then they can also intervene when they see the symbol,” she told Swedish public broadcaster Sveriges Radio, describing the Islamist organisation as “the world’s most dangerous terrorist group”.

NOTE: That is how they should view the hijab, keffiyeh, koran and hadiths as well. Highly toxic towards human development.

Jacob Asmar and his family discovered the message “convert or die” scrawled on the walls of their pizzeria in red paint earlier this week.

“I think it’s horrible because we get thoughts that we don’t want to get now (…) like we are going to die because this terrorist group is coming to Gothenburg,” the 16-year-old told The Local on Friday.

“We Assyrians are worried – especially my family because we own the restaurant – about how there could be big trouble.”

The pizzeria is one of a number of businesses in the Tynnered area of the city that have been targeted by graffiti appearing to support the radical Islamist group Isis (also known as IS) in recent weeks.

“It feels like persecution of Jews in the 30s when Jews in Germany had Stars of David painted on its doors. Now it happens here,” said Jacob’s father Yusuf Asmar in a separate interview with The Gothenburg Post.

Around 10,000 Assyrians, a Christian ethnic group originating in the region that is modern Syria, Iraq, Iran and Turkey – now live in Sweden.

Representatives of several Assyrian associations called an emergency meeting on Thursday night to discuss ongoing claims that Sweden’s second largest city is becoming a recruitment hub for Isis, which has already targeted the Christian minority in Syria.

“Imagine if you fled persecution from your country and then started living next door to IS sympathisers here in Sweden. It is everyday life for many people,” said Josef Garis, president of Assyriska Distriktet i Göteborg, one of the largest community groups for Assyrians in west Sweden.

“We know that Gothenburg is one of IS’ recruitment bases, and we hear about people who express sympathy for IS here in Tynnered,” he told the Gothenburg Post.

NOTE II: Hamas’ green flag has the same message as well as the flag for the Sowdies.

TARD EXPLODES IN LONDON TUBE: I’M A MUSLIM, I CAN’T PRAY WITH YOU……!

Now please remind me, just exactly why it’s such a benefit to have these people (islam 101’ers) here among us, contributing exactly what?

SCREAMING MUSTARD ALERT2

These people cannot, and should not, be confused with European migrants to the US in the late 1800’s -early 1900’s. They’re of the wrong belief system, they come from tribal/clannish communities and do not believe in individual freedom. Also, the great migration to the US was controlled, quota systems and no welfare state.

WATCH: MUSLIM MAN SCREAMS AT FEMALE TUBE PASSENGER “YOU SHOULD BE IN PRISON… I AM A MUSLIM, I CAN’T PRAY WITH YOU”

Some heated scenes from a London Overground train emerged on YouTube yesterday as a Muslim man appears to be shouting at a woman who later identifies herself as a Christian for putting her feet on the train seats.

The video begins with the man citing his objection to a lady – identified via Facebook as Ruby Butler – with her feet on the train seat next to her. He says that because he is a Muslim, he doesn’t pray with his shoes on.

At that point a man intervenes and tells him “she’s just not worth arguing with”. But the continues, shouting, “You should be in prison!” at her. Butler responds, “What? For putting my feet on a chair?”

“Yes.” he responds.

Another man from the other end of the carriage then interjects. He can be heard saying, “This is England man, it’s England.”

“I live in England okay? I was born here,” says the Muslim man, who has a thick, Pakistani accent.

“Don’t argue with me I’m born here okay?” he continues. “I have as much rights as you have okay?”

“Who’s talking about rights?” the man says in response, and the two continue to argue before they agree to get off the train together for what appears to be an impending fight.

SERIES OF WESTERN CAVINGS ON FREE SPEECH DUE TO MUSLIM THREATS OF VIOLENCE…….

What we are learning here is, Muslims are not a minority, and if you raise your voice to the highest rafters threatening violence, many governmental bodies within the West will fold like a cheap suit.

Freespeechcriticismofreligion-vi

First and foremost, we have to end the disingenuous meme of Muslims being a minority, when in fact they belong to a 1.6 billion clan, have incredibly powerful blocks within the UN and (worrisome enough) increasingly high profile voices in Europe (EU) and in the US/Canada, and lots and lots of oil money to help propagate their propaganda and both mental and physical beachheads.

Just last month in Finland, organizers for Lars Vilks drawings in the house of parliament was nixed ”due to security reasons” (but then successfully held in a private venue just blocks away), then just yesterday we hear that drawings of mohamed in a free speech village was to be denied for the exact same reason. Now we learn that in Canada, a scheduled free speech event on Parliament Hill in Ottawa was cancelled due to ”security threats” and in Denmark the mayor of Bornholm Regional Municipality, Winni Grosbøll (S),

”flatly refuses to let the works from the recent “Draw the Prophet Mohammed” competition by American Islam critic Pamela Geller be exhibited at the political festival.”

Yet again, Conrad Black’s (ankle biting maximus ignoramushighly ignorant and factually flawed statement comes to good use in proving my point on Islamic intimidation working to undermine Western values:

Very few Muslim countries have objectively been successful and they are not a menace on the scale of Hitler or Stalin, cunning totalitarians at the head of great, militarily powerful, more or less Western nations. Islamist terrorists are a horrible nuisance, but they aren’t capable of destroying our civilization and have accomplished almost nothing since the 9/11 (2001) attacks except a few random bombings and shootings.

With all the appeasement going on today (cancellations due to supposed security risks) in the West vis-a-vis Muslim threats of violence, Conrad Black’s recent vaporings make him into a laughing stock.

Eighty Percent of Turkish Youngsters Have No Problem with Muslim Violence against Other Religions

A study carried out by Motivaction (a polling firm) shows that 80% of the Dutch Turkish youngsters are not opposed to the fact that, in the name of jihad, violence is perpetrated against people of other religions.  In addition, 80% do not consider the return of jihadis to the Netherlands from the Middle East to be a problem.  Deputy Prime Minister Asscher (Labor party) said, “We cannot accept that these youngsters turn their backs to society”.

Freedom Party leader, Geert Wilders, said that in the past, when he would mention high figures, people would laugh at him.  He added that “we now know that the reality is worse”.   Liberal party parliamentarian, Malik Azmani, called the outcome of the poll “shocking and unacceptable”. He said that multiculturalism has a negative influence on Dutch society, because its stops the need for integration.

Isis wants to spread Ebola: security chief

Spain’s state secretary for security, Francisco Martínez, has told Congress that jihadists with connections to the extremist force Isis have discussed on internet forums how they could use Ebola as a weapon against the United States and the West in general.

Speaking on Wednesday in the congressional Interior Committee, Martínez pointed to internet conversations of this kind as proof that jihadists treat cyberspace as “an extension of the battlefield”.

The state secretary said that it was necessary to combat the online challenge posed by extremists’ use of the internet, explaining that terrorist groups have identified six objectives in their online activities: “Threatening enemies through propaganda, preparing operations, exchanging information, ideological training, recruiting new members and acquiring finance”.

FORMER PM OF SPAIN: HAMAS AND ISLAMIC STATE ARE PART OF THE SAME IDEOLOGICAL ISLAMIC FRONT…….

 

I would agree with that statement.

HAMAS CRIMES ARE NORMAL BY PALI STANDARDS

Fourth, Israel is today a bulwark against jihadism and western countries need the support of Israel against this and other threats to global security. Recognising Palestine as a state is also an implicit approval of the agreement reached by Fatah and Hamas. As Hamas and Isis are parts of the same Islamist front, the West should not legitimise an entity that would be formed by one of them.

Recognising a Palestinian state now will thwart hopes for peace

jose maria aznarHamas and Islamic State are part of the same Islamist front

[…]

Finally, we cannot ignore the fact that, earlier this month at a conference in Cairo, Palestinians were pledged $5.4 billion by international donors for the reconstruction of Gaza. Only half of that money will be dedicated to the rebuilding of the Gaza Strip, according to the Norwegian foreign minister, Borge Brende, who cochaired the conference. No one knows what the other half will be spent on. If the funds are received by a Hamas-ruled government in Gaza, it is more than likely that they will be used to consolidate Hamas’s power, amass more rockets and build more tunnels to attack Israeli civilians.

The Friends of Israel Initiative has always claimed that peace can only be reached through negotiations.

Recognising Palestine as a state in the face of Hamas’s attacks on Israel is detrimental to peace. Therefore we call on all responsible leaders of free nations to reject unilateral moves that only reward one side. We call on leaders to urge both parties to resume direct bilateral talks. If we want to have a democratic, free, peaceful and prosperous Palestinian state alongside Israel, recognising an entity that is far from democratic, free, peaceful and prosperous will only thwart any possibility that any such state will exist in the future.

SOUTH AFRICA: WOMEN AND GAY FRIENDLY MOSQUE SHUT DOWN BY ISLAM 101’ERS…….

 

In Islam, there is no freedom to choose.

Another classic example of outside (non-Islamic) influences softening Islamic thinking. Nothing approaching modern thinking stems from any Islamic impulse, it’s from non-Islamic sources, hence the reason to state, quite accurately and as often as possible, that Islam is by itself, alien, and demonstratively opposed to a liberal free society in which pluralism is a founding feature.

NOTE: Jews and Christians voice their disapproval over similar congregations in their own communities, but I have never heard of any of them even attempting to force a ”shut down” of their doors, let alone through the help of government officials. It’s a private affair, it’s called belonging to the concept of a free society, where freedom to choose, even if it’s not deemed a ”right choice” by others, is a unalienable right.

A gay- and woman-friendly mosque that opened recently in South Africa was quickly forced to close, ostensibly because it violated local zoning regulations.

As Vlad Tepes points out, Muslim activists were able to pressure the city into closing this blasphemous mosque, but they never do the same to any mosque that incites violent jihad.

Funny about that.

ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALISM, THE PERMANENT THREAT, AN INTERVIEW WITH MORDECHAI ABIR BY DR.MANFRED GERSTENFELD…….

 

The Jerusalem Post yesterday published Dr.Gerstenfeld’s major interview with Professor Mordechai Abir, originally published in his book, Israel’s New Future, twenty years ago.

The paper gave it a full page broadsheet, which is rare. When Dr.Gerstenfeld first interviewed Abir  at the time, Islamic fundamentalism was there, but it wasn’t a huge issue as it has since become. In the interview, Abir showed great foresight about how fundamentalism might develop. In today’s reality, both here and in the entire Middle East, I think it is a remarkable piece to re-read.

NOTE: Sam Harris nailed it on the head about the word ”fundamentalism”:

”The only problem with Islamic fundamentalism are the fundamentals of Islam.” ”The principal tenet of Jainism is non-harming. Observant Jains will literally not harm a fly. Fundamentalist Jainism and fundamentalist Islam do not have the same consequences, neither logically nor behaviorally.”

Mordechai Abir

From Manfred Gerstenfeld: Israel’s New Future – Interviews (1994)

Islamic Fundamentalism, The Permanent Threat An Interview with Mordechai Abir

Dr.Manfred GerstenfeldMordechai Abir teaches Middle Eastern and Islamic studies at the Hebrew University. He has published books on such diverse topics as Saudi Arabia, oil and Ethiopia. His most recent book, Saudi Arabia, Government, Society and the Gulf Crisis, deals with the background and impact of the 1990-91 Gulf crisis and war.

In a discussion that took place in Jerusalem, he surveys the likely impact of Moslem fundamentalism on Islamic states, global stability and Israel. He dissects and analyzes the various forces at work with a surgeon’s precision. His matter-of-fact assessment offers cause for alarm, as does his warning that Israel’s leadership must carefully examine every step it takes in the direction of peace with the Arab world, and the PLO in particular, in order to avoid possible disaster.

His survey of the Moslem world focuses on the rising impact of neo-fundamentalism; all the rest, he believes, is secondary. And any survey of trends in the Moslem world must begin with the Arab world, whose role is pivotal.

Despite the façade of fabulous oil riches, Abir notes that the vast majority of Arabs have remained poor and backward. Only a few of the more than 20 Arab states – mainly sparsely populated ones – enjoy significant oil resources, and none of these countries are inclined to share the wealth equitably with others.

Population growth, lack of development and a falling standard of living, set against the backdrop of oil riches that elude the masses, create a setting that is ripe for fundamentalism. That is the key factor in all changes that are likely to occur in the Arab world in the coming years.

Neo-fundamentalism, as Abir calls the current trend, differs sharply from the “modern” fundamentalism that emerged in the late 19th century, but it is not totally unrelated to its predecessor.

The “modern” fundamentalism of 100 years ago emerged as the Arab and Moslem world faced the bitter truth: they had lagged behind global development. “It was no longer an important part of civilized society,” Abir says. “It belonged to the Third World. The despised infidel Christian societies had not only overtaken the Arabs in every field, but finally colonized them as well.”

Abir stresses that fundamentalism has its foundation in the search for answers to problems posed by the new world impinging on the world of Islam. Jamal al-Din-al-Afghani, the father of modern fundamentalism, believed that Western culture and philosophy could be separated from technology, which he claimed the West actually had borrowed from the Moslem, and developed further. His people, he preached, should take back that which was rightfully theirs, but reject altogether other aspects of Western civilization.

The message has undergone certain changes over the years, Abir says, but the basic rejection of Western values and hegemony remains essentially unchanged. What has changed are the tactics.

“In the circumstances of a future without hope, Islamic fundamentalists teach that the real answer for society’s ills and people’s personal problems lies in the return to the roots – the original teachings of Mohammed and his followers, the life they conducted and the success they achieved in the first centuries of Islam,” Abir explains. What does this mean? He points to certain attractions of life in the early years of Islam: society was more egalitarian and people looked after one another when the Moslem world was led by pious righteous rulers.

“The old school of 20th century fundamentalism, such as the pre-World War Two Moslem Brothers, sought to create a better society,” Abir says. “They did not seek control of government. After World War Two, a major change took place: the Moslem Brothers resorted increasingly to militancy and terrorism to achieve their aims.”

This militancy led to an increasingly blunt confrontation between fundamentalists and the successful secular nationalist pan-Arab movement championed by Nasser. “In Nasser’s jails in the late 1950s, some Moslem Brothers changed their approach totally,” Abir says. “They no longer believed that any secular government could transform itself into a Moslem one. They considered government and society so corrupt that they had to be rebuilt from the bottom to adhere to the principles of true Islam.”

In their quest for total change, Abir says, the neo-fundamentalists began to consider Jihad – holy war – to overthrow and replace their own corrupt governments. They compared the Arab states to the pre-Islamic idolatrous societies. The neo-fundamentalists rejected the secular Arab polity, which they associated with Western culture, its materialism and its philosophical foundations. Their leading ideologist, Sayyid Qutb, who lived for some years in the US, returned to Egypt around 1950, altogether alienated from Western culture, which he observed and abhorred.

FINNISH STATE SECURITY AND INTELLIGENCE REPORTS INCREASE IN JIHADI THREAT IN FINLAND…….

 

Been saying it for years.

What’s not being said here is that Islam, all by itself, is radical, in comparison with other religions/ideologies. The more Islam within the country, the more retrograde that society becomes, as well as the increased risk of violence and mayhem by the adherents to the desert’s warlord’s creed.

Security police: Increased radical Islamist threat in Finland

Finland faces heightened risks from links between radical Islam and terrorism, according to a fresh report by Finland’s security and intelligence police unit Supo. The unit points to the ongoing Syrian conflict as a source of the increased threat.

Suojelupoliisin ovi Helsingissä.
Finland’s security and intelligence police, Supo Image: Yle

According to the Supo assessment, in spite of the increased risk of radical Islam fomenting terrorism, Finland is still not a primary target for terrorist organisations. The security police add that the risk of al-Qaeda-led attacks against Finland or Finns is still low.

Rather the evaluation of an increased threat refers to violence that may be perpetrated within local borders without external guidance.

Supo said that there are more people in Finland with links to terrorist organisations. They unit reports increased numbers of people travelling to conflict areas in Syria as well as those who have returned from engaging in war tourism.

According to Supo it has no information about concrete terrorism operations targeting Finland. However the intelligence organization has warned that the operations of networks with to Syria and the activities of private individuals are unpredictable and difficult to anticipate.

UK’S SENIOR MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD LEADER ISSUES THREAT, BAN US AND SEE TERRORISM RISE…….

 

H/T: Sheik Yer’Mami (PBUH):

UK’s senior Muslim Brotherhood leader to British officials: Don’t ban us — or else

Ibrahim MounirIt is a familiar argument at this point: acting against Islamic jihadists risks “alienating moderate Muslims.” The Times editors put “peaceful” in brackets ahead of Ibrahim Mounir’s reference to “Muslim Brotherhood values,” but in reality the Brotherhood’s year in power in Egypt was anything but peaceful; that year was marked by thuggery against its opponents, and since the Brotherhood was toppled from power, its supporters have blamed Christians for the loss of power, terrorizing them and burning churches. And even if it really were peaceful, the Muslim Brotherhood is dedicated to establishing Islamic law in societies, and we are constantly told that Muslims in the West have no interest in bringing Sharia West with them, now or ever — so one would think that genuinely moderate Muslims would be happy to repudiate the Brotherhood and see it banned in Britain.

Ibrahim Mounir’s tactic here is very similar to one that is used constantly against me and other foes of jihad terror: the claim that speaking honestly about how Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism will alienate moderate Muslims. You can see an Australian interviewer ask me that exact question in this video. The obvious answer, of course, is that if they were truly moderate, they’d be just as indignant about that usage as we are, and would be standing with us against it.
