Mass immigration to a welfare state is state suicide.
The irony being, decades ago it would be entirely obvious to the Left that unmanaged immigration and unchecked illegal migration would be detrimental to their constituency let alone society as a whole.
NOTE: It’s called ”making the case” time and again to the public at large, refusing to be smeared and bullied into modifying the stark truth.

It is tough to admit, but Nigel Farage may be right about immigration
Another Voice: He wants an Australian-style points system and welcomes the skilled. He believes that Britain is letting in too many people. I think he’s right
My name is Chris Maume, and I – no, I can’t say it. I’ll try again: my name is Chris Maume, and – no, no, I can’t. One last try: (deep breath) my name is Chris Maume, and I think I agree with Nigel Farage about immigration. There! It’s out. That wasn’t so difficult, was it?
There’s a five-a-side pitch near me which until last week was well-used by children from the local estate. Tarmac, high wire fence, nothing fancy. It’s referred to locally as “the cage”. It was also the scene of training sessions for what looked like bicycle polo (medical students from the nearby teaching hospital, I presume). It’s now a pile of rubble awaiting a new block of flats.
People need homes, clearly, and five-a-side football and bicycle polo are some way down the list of issues gripping the nation. But how many pitches, how many recreational spaces, will be left when we finally conclude that Britain has too many people? A thousand? A hundred? One? None?
In unveiling Ukip’s policy on immigration, Farage wisely eschewed targets – he’s learned from the Tories not make unkeepable promises. He wants an Australian-style points system and welcomes the skilled. He believes that Britain is letting in too many people. I think he’s right. Immigration invigorates a country – but what if that country is nearly full to bursting?
I think of myself as left-wing, so how do I find myself marching to the same beat as the Rabid Right’s head honcho? Two words: housing and schools.
Because nothing upsets the Swedish multiculturalists more, (not even Sweden’s rape statistics in which migrants are vastly overrepresented) than not getting more foreigners into their self styled (faux) ”humanitarian superpower” state.

The number of people applying for asylum in Sweden was cut in half in January, compared to figures from September 2014, but the country remains set to experience record refugee arrivals throughout the year.
According to the Swedish Migration Board, 4,894 people sought asylum in Sweden in January compared to 9,976 at the start of last autumn.
Sweden became the first European country in 2013 to grant automatic residency to Syrian refugees and has since seen asylum requests rise to record levels, which are still expected to reach about 90,000 in 2015.
This is going to be an ongoing issue for the brave man.
Fortunately for me, I was able to interview Lars Vilks in 2008, where he admitted to me in an exclusive interview, that the first blood ever drawn as a result of outrage over his depictions of Mohamed as a dog, happened the day earlier, after Vilks’ “Dogs Musical”, in the “A Day For Free Speech” event. This was the first admission by Vilks to any blogger (or to any media, that I know of) in the English speaking world.
Lars Vilks: When you crash into some sort of institutional critique and you’re really serious about it, then you, I mean, either you do something which is totally stupid and impossible, or otherwise you really hit the nail and then you have to wait to see what happens. That’s one thing, the other thing of course is what goes on in the world. The world is also fascinated by this, I mean really, it’s mostly with the Arabs with things going on. And that went alright. It was the first bloodshed we had yesterday?
Tundra Tabloids: Oh yeah…
Lars Vilks: It was the first bloodshed?
Tundra Tabloids: Yes it was.
Lars Vilks’ first talk since Copenhagen cancelled

Published: 04 Mar 2015 16:00 GMT+01:00
UPDATED: The controversial Swedish artist who was the presumed target of one of the Copenhagen terror attacks last month was set to make his first public appearance on Friday. But the talk has been cancelled over security concerns.
Lars Vilks was due to speak at a panel discussion on free speech in Gothenburg on Thursday. The event was initially postponed by a day following concerns about the security of teachers taking part in a union conference in the same building and later cancelled altogether.
“I really hope that we will be able to take part in it but there seems to be a lot of administrative and security trouble around it, so we are still not sure,” the artist told The Local on Wednesday morning.
“What we are hoping it will be is a conference and a debate about freedom of speech and how the discussions around this have changed in these past two months in Europe where these questions are being so heavily discussed. We want to know what people have been saying and what are the arguments.”
But Friday’s talk ended up being cancelled late on Wednesday afternoon after it emerged it would clash with a lecture being hosted by an art school, which rents rooms in the same venue.
“It’s very unfortunate. But we felt it would not work. Our tenants should not be hit with problems caused by this booking,” the CEO of the Folkets hus (The People’s House) venue, Lina Lindquist, said about the Vilks talk.

U.S. Ambassador to South Korea Mark Lippert was attacked in Seoul as he was about to begin a breakfast meeting.
Lippert, 42, was slashed in the face and on his hand.
Security officers leaped on the attacker, pinning him down. The attacker, Kim Ki-jong, reportedly shouted demands for North and South Korea to be united. He also condemned the annual joint U.S.-South Korea military exercises which are currently taking place.
North Korea has condemned those exercises as well, claiming they are preparations for an invasion of North Korea.
Lippert is a Stanford University graduate, who served in the U.S. Navy and served as Chief of Staff to Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, and previously held numerous posts in the U.S. government, including stints working for Sen. Dianne Fienstein and Cong. Tom Daschle.
The ambassador was a foreign policy and defense adviser to Barack Obama during his first presidential campaign, and later served as an official adviser to President Obama. The president called Lippert after the attack to wish him a speedy recovery.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, supporters of the decision such as intellectuals and scholars say that those mosques are time bombs that threaten national security, as they fall outside the purview of the Ministry of Religious Endowments and are used to spread subversive ideologies.
Egypt closes 27,000 places of worship

An Egyptian administrative court on Feb. 18 upheld the Ministry of Religious Endowments’ decision issued in September 2013 to close down neighborhood places of worship of less than 80 square meters (861 square feet), a move intended to protect young people from the militancy and extremism that can prevail in such places, which lack the legal standing to hold Friday prayers.
This move sets a precedent that raises many questions about the fate of mosques in many Egyptian villages, the grounds of which are usually less than 80 square meters. In reply, opponents of the decision such as the Salafist Nour Party claimed that closing down places of worship without providing a larger alternative serves to further bolster extremist ideology, considering that the larger existing mosques cannot accommodate Friday worshippers who line surrounding streets to pray.
This explains why the legitimate citizenry are all upset.
Managed and carefully thought out (including public input and control) immigration and asylum policies is one thing, full blown chaos is entirely another. When immigrants and illegal aliens are given more consideration than the nation of citizens themselves, then it’s a policy gone badly astray, and those responsible should be brought to book.
The migration chaos left by Labour: Over 13 years one immigrant came into the UK every minute and number of people in Britain born abroad rose by 3.6million
During ‘open door’ years of 1997 and 2001 the number of immigrants rose
Population was equivalent to the population of Britain’s five largest cities
Report found 7.23million immigrants were allowed to arrive in that time
Figure doesn’t include offspring born in UK or those who entered illegally
Relaxation of visas, bogus students and asylum seeker ‘amnesty’ blamed

Immigrants arrived in Britain at the rate of almost one every minute during the ‘open door’ years under New Labour, a devastating audit reveals.
The influx caused the foreign population to swell by 3.6million between 1997 and 2010.
The figure was four times higher than the previous 13 years and equivalent to the population of Britain’s five largest cities outside London – Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow, Sheffield and Bradford.
The report was released as immigration – ranked the second most important issue by voters – finally came to prominence in the general election campaign.
Ukip leader Nigel Farage came under attack from both the Tories and Labour after ditching his party’s commitment to cap net immigration at 50,000.
And Ed Miliband attempted to seize the initiative on the issue, ridiculing David Cameron at Prime Minister’s Questions over the Tories’ failure to reduce net migration to the ‘tens of thousands’.
It’s great that Asra Nomani is condemning Obama’s refusal to connect Islam with the Islamic State and other jihadis around the world killing people for their Allah and founder Mohamed. But she engages in the same tomfoolery as the Daily Mail I mentioned in an earlier post. The factual Islamic doctrine of abrogation is a reality, and will continual to be so long after anyone of us is around. Understanding that truth is crucial in formulateing effective policies against Islam/Islamization.
Once again, Stephen Coughlin:
Brave Muslim Warns of ISIS’s Apocalyptic Mission (video)
The terrorist group known as Islamic State, or ISIS, has issued a call on jihadis around the world to kill Twitter employees over blocked accounts. Among those on the target list include Twitter’s founder Jack Dorsey.
“Your virtual war on us will cause a real war on you,” an online post released by ISIS said. “We told you from the beginning it’s not your war, but you didn’t get it and kept closing our accounts on Twitter, but we always come back.”
Twitter is taking the threats seriously. In recent weeks, Twitter and YouTube have deleted posts and shutdown accounts that released ISIS videos.
Meanwhile, one brave Muslim women said President Barack Obama’s insistence that ISIS is not Islamic is “completely wrong” and that his reluctance to label the enemy will have dire consequences.
It doesn’t matter what the apologist say, ( I wish it were so) the fact remains that abrogation is a fundamental doctrine in discerning what passages in the koran are more relevant than others. Violent and intolerant passages superseding earlier peaceful passages are a de facto reality, and only Islamic apologists and those upset about their own co-religionists giving Islam a bad rep, are the ones pushing this crapola.
HOW ISLAMIC IS THE ISLAMIC STATE? NOT VERY, SAY EXPERTS: HOW GROUP HAND-PICKS WHAT IT WANTS FROM THE KORAN AND ACCOUNTS OF MUHAMMAD’S ACTIONS TO WAGE ITS JIHAD
The Islamic State cherry picks sections of the Koran and misinterprets the accounts of the Prophet Muhammad in order to wage jihad and sign up new recruits, experts say.
It is estimated that 20,000 people have streamed into the territory in Iraq and Syria, where ISIS has proclaimed what it calls a ‘caliphate’, ruled by its often brutal version of Islamic law.
The group purport to recreate the conquests and rule of the Prophet Muhammad and his successors and maintains its worst brutalities – such as beheading captives – only prove its purity in following what it contends is the prophet’s example.
But now Muslims clerics and other experts are speaking out, saying that the group hand picks what it wants from Islam’s holy book, the Koran, and from accounts of Muhammad’s actions and sayings, known as the Hadith.
It then misinterprets many of these, while ignoring everything in the texts that contradicts those hand-picked selections.
Writings by the group’s clerics and its English-language online magazine, Dabiq, are full of citations from Koranic verses, the Hadith and centuries of interpreters, mostly from hardliners.
But Joas Wagemakers, an assistant professor of Islamic Studies at Radboud University in the Netherlands, says these are taken far out of context by ISIS.
He explained that Muslim scholars throughout history have used texts in a ‘decontextualised way’ to suit their purposes and says that ISIS represent the extreme.
He added: ‘It would be a mistake to conclude the Islamic State group’s extremism is the true Islam that emerges from the Koran and Hadith.
According to Islamic teachings, homosexuality is abnormal, abhorrent in the eyes of Allah, and the cause of severe punishment and torment in the Hereafter for those who actively pursue such a lifestyle. The punishment for men or women who are unwilling to give up homosexuality and therefore are rejecting the guidance of Allah Most High is in fact death according to Islam.
NOTE: So the Daily Mail is correctly calling this act of murder, barbarism, and by default, (though it would never admit to it) Islam itself, and the founder of it and all those who came immediately after him, codifying his beliefs into law.
Hurled to his death in front of a baying mob: ISIS barbarians throw ‘gay’ man off building in another sickening day in Jihadi capital of Raqqa

Militants fighting for the Islamic State in Syria have thrown yet another young man to his death from a building after accusing him of being gay.
Stomach-churning photographs show a large bloodthirsty crowd gathered at the foot of a multi-storey building in the group’s de facto capital Raqqa to watch the murder of the young victim.
With the baying crowd clambering on to rooftops to get a better view of the savage scene, the blindfolded man is dragged to the roof of the tallest building in the neighbourhood by bearded militants, who use mobile phones to film him being barbarically thrown to his death.

The images were released by local activist group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently, who work undercover in the ISIS stronghold to expose the terror group’s atrocities.
The photographs carry the distinctive yellow logo of ISIS’ propaganda wing Al Hayat Media Centre, suggesting they come from an as-yet unreleased video of the savage murder.
The photographs shows a huge crowd gathering at the foot of a run-down building in the west of the city, which ISIS captured in early 2014 amid the ongoing chaos of the Syrian Civil War.
Lord Nazir Ahmed stressed that Muslims were not asking for special treatment in elections.
One British Community
“Muslims are not saying that we want special treatment, all we’re asking for is equal treatment. We want to be part of British society… To live peacefully, without being demonized on a daily basis,” he said.
“I am also a strong advocate to say, don’t vote for somebody because he happens to be a Muslim… It is better to have a candidate who supports your cause, whether it is to make sure you are a part of society… There are so many issues that need to be asked,” he added.
They really do want to erase borders like the Islamic State, in fact I bet they’re secretly envious of them.
Together we can bring European solidarity to a new level. Europe must become a humanitarian superpower.
Why can’t refugees travel to Sweden legally?

Refugees should not be forced to make dangerous journeys to Europe in order to seek asylum, argues Liberal Party MEP Cecilia Wikström, who also wants to see other EU states joining Sweden and Germany in taking in more people from war-torn nations.
Over 50 million people are currently displaced in the world, many of them caught in a cold and harsh winter. One fifth of these are Syrians in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. Approximately two million of the Syrian refugees are living in refugee camps in Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan and Egypt, where access to medical care and medication is scarce.
Only about two percent of the refugees make their way to Europe. Most of them come through a dangerous boat ride across the Mediterranean Sea. I’m proud of the fact that Sweden last year granted asylum to 26 000 Syrians, just as many as Germany.
Meanwhile, the UNCHR reports that 3419 people died on the perilous journey to Europe. It is a tragic record and it is clear that the Mediterranean Sea is now a sea of death, a giant graveyard of anonymous people united by a single desire – to save their lives.
I am overwhelmed by sadness over the fact that in the year of 2015 there are still no legal ways for refugees to be able to reach Europe in order to seek asylum. It is the desperation and the feeling of having nothing to lose that forces people to pay exorbitant sums to unscrupulous smugglers for a place on an unseaworthy, overcrowded boat.
The Dublin Regulation, which is based on the principle that the Member State in which the asylum seeker first arrives should take responsibility for the person, gives a distorted distribution and I have to admit that the system is failing.
Others are doing the same while on the welfare dole.
BREAKING NEWS: Counter-terror police arrest two men over alleged cold-call scam targeting elderly victims and conning them out of thousands to fund Syria extremists
Scotland Yard announced today that it has arrested two men over an alleged cold calling scam funding terror
By RICHARD SPILLETT FOR MAILONLINE
PUBLISHED: 15:05 GMT, 4 March 2015 | UPDATED: 15:05 GMT, 4 March 2015
Counter-terror police investigating large-scale fraud linked to UK extremists travelling to Syria have arrested two men on suspicion of money-laundering.
The arrests are linked to reports of vulnerable and elderly victims being ‘cold called’ over the phone by a suspect impersonating a police officer, who informs them their bank account has been compromised, Scotland Yard said.
Victims are then tricked into transferring money to an account under the control of the suspect, with one pensioner losing around £150,000.
The men, aged 29 and 23, were arrested at addresses in west and east London respectively and are being held in custody in a police station in south London.
Officers also executed search warrants at two addresses in north London, one in west London and one address in south east London.
An endangered species if the West continues to refuse to address Islam 101.
Read the entire piece, this is what apostates from Islam have to endure in the West, in a society that should be well known for tolerating people leaving faith for another or no faith at all. Think of communist dissidents in the USSR living in fear for their lives, from their own family members, family friends and neighbors who would threaten them with bodily harm if they knew that they had given up on Communist Socialism.
NOTE: But the real evil is that it takes place within the West, where these people should be able to find support, refuge and solace.
I will not be able to convince them that being an ex-Muslim I can still be a good person and a good daughter.If I stood up, people would be ashamed to know my family.All would put pressure on my father.The mosque, family and neighbors, and if my father did not respond, it would be up to others to ‘act’.Such is the thinking.In their world it should be an example that shows others that what I have done is not okay.
I shall always be ready with a lie
25-year-old Haifa lives two lives.One as a Muslim and the other as an atheist.She no longer believe in God, but dares not leave Islam.Therefore, she lives a double life, where she is lying about what she is and who she’s with.I hope that one day it stops being taboo to leave Islam, she tells her story here
I was born in Denmark, but neither went to a nursery nor a kindergarten, so I started in elementary school without knowing a word of Danish.My classmates were all immigrants – maybe there were one or two Danes in my class. When I later switched to Arabic free school, I had only Arab classmates and most of the teachers were Muslims.Twice a week I got Koranic teaching in the local mosque, where I had to learn the Koran by heart, and every time I learned a new verse, my parents gave me a gift.In the Free School teachers said that it was imposed on them to teach us about evolution and the Big Bang, but we should remember that it was only a theory, and that God obviously had created the earth.I remember that I went home from school and told my mother everything I had learned about the beginning of the world and that man, was in fact a developed ape.She was furious.“We do not believe in such things,” she said and made me promise that I never mentioned Darwin and monkeys again.I did not, but I began to read books that dealt with science.
Both my parents are extremely conservative and extremely religious.They come from a small town that is heavily Sunni and moved because of my father’s political engagement. The fact that they practice their religion here in Denmark and have maintained their connection to the Middle East.The more they dedicate their lives to the faith, the closer they feel to their home country, they say.When my mom and dad assess themselves as parents, they look at how good a Muslim, I have become.A good Muslim does not believe in evolution and do not question his faith.A good Muslim ponders his life for Islam and the concepts of honor, which the Danes could never understand.I felt distant from everything that I came from when I started to believe in science and asked questions about the Qur’an: Semen is truly formed in the spine?Why is a man’s testimony worth twice as much as a woman?Why women should not participate at funerals, and why does the Koran allow men to keep slaves?
All the girls in the class began wearing the scarf when they were 12-13 years.I waited until I was 14. I did not want to wear a headscarf, but thought I would have more in common with the girls in class, if I took it on.Everyone was so proud of me and said I looked so beautiful covered.I also stopped going in tight pants.Outwardly I looked like someone who was confident in the faith, but inside doubts continued.I told a friend about all the things I did not understand in Islam, and she gave me a book on the Qur’an’s scientific miracles.It’s such a thing you give to doubters.I needed to believe what was written in it, for apostate Muslims are, where I come from, not worth anything.The fear of hell was sown in me from the time I was quite small – it is there, the renegade ends – and every time I was wondering about something, rummaging Satan in my head.When I left home and started an education that was in another city, I gave the doubt space.I re-read the Koran with new, critical eyes and for the first time in my life I stopped identifying myself as a Muslim.
A treasure trove of truthfulness. The imam makes it very clear what I’ve been saying about ”interfaith dialogue” over the years, it has no place in Islam. So when Muslims engage in it, it’s all for the furthering of Islamic goals, like using churches and synagogues for prayer, but never ever allowing any kind or reciprocity of the same.
NOTE: Islam is not here to co-exist, but to eventually supplant.

Gazans feel trapped, six months after Israel-Hamas war
Half a year has passed since the end of the war in the Gaza Strip. With reconstruction moving slowly and borders mostly closed, hopelessness is spreading among those living in the ruins. Tania Krämer reports from Gaza.
His suitcases are packed and ready to be collected. Mohammed Sulaiman has only one thought these days: how to get out of Gaza. The 25-year old has received a scholarship to pursue a doctorate at an Australian university.
“I feel trapped. I have tried everything, through connections, through all means to get out of Gaza,” he says, seated in a coffee shop in Gaza City. “Last time the Rafah border crossing opened for three days, I went there with my pregnant wife, and we tried to get on one of the buses. But I can’t even register.”
Sulaiman is one of many who feel trapped in Gaza. For years now, Gazans have been unable to decide for themselves whether they can leave the small coastal enclave, even if just for travel. But since the 52-day war between Hamas and Israel last summer, the sense of being stuck in Gaza has become even stronger, Sulaiman explains.
In 2012 he was able to spend a year studying English in London and returned to Gaza afterwards. “I used to think I can make change here, but I lost hope. I don’t think I’ll ever come back if I were able to leave again. There is simply no future in this place,” he says.
Only a narcissistic, radical, hard core ideologue of a leader would turn a deaf ear to all this.
But wait, Obama is exactly that!
Here is a quote from Al-Faraj’s article:
“I will conclude by saying the following: Since Obama is the godfather of the prefabricated revolutions in the Arab world, and since he is the ally of political Islam, [which is] the caring mother of [all] the terrorist organizations, and since he is working to sign an agreement with Iran that will come at the expense of the U.S.’s longtime allies in the Gulf, I am very glad of Netanyahu’s firm stance and [his decision] to speak against the nuclear agreement at the American Congress despite the Obama administration’s anger and fury. I believe that Netanyahu’s conduct will serve our interests, the people of the Gulf, much more than the foolish behavior of one of the worst American presidents. Do you agree with me?”
Arab Commentators Back Netanyahu On Speech To Congress
Netanyahu said that “even if Israel has to stand alone – Israel will stand.”
On the eve of the Purim festival, Israel watched Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu deliver a historical speech to the U.S. Congress on Iran. The speech was broadcasted on all Israeli TV Channels, albeit with a five-minute delay to make sure there was no ‘electioneering’ in what Netanyahu told Congress. Israel will hold elections in another two weeks.
In his speech, Netanyahu evoked the upcoming Purim festival, when the book of Ester is read and Jews commemorate the first attempt to commit genocide on the Jewish people by the Persian King Ahasueres (Ahasveros), who acted on the advice of his personal advisor Haman. Netanyahu compared this attempt to annihilate the Jewish people to the vows to destroy the Jewish state made by contemporary Iranian leaders.
Netanyahu said that “even if Israel has to stand alone – Israel will stand.”
Yesterday, Faisal J. Abbas, the powerful Editor-in-Chief of Al Arabiya English, published an editorial under the headline: “President Obama, listen to Netanyahu on Iran.” Abbas’ editorial was a reaction to Netanyahu’s speech to AIPAC yesterday.
He wrote: “In just a few words, Mr. Netanyahu managed to accurately summarize a clear and present danger, not just to Israel (which obviously is his concern), but to other U.S. allies in the region.”
The Saudi Daily Al-Jazirah published an article written by Dr. Ahmad Al-Faraj, who supported Netanyahu’s decision to speak to the U.S. Congress against the upcoming deal with Iran. He called Obama “one of the worst American presidents” and said that Netanyahu’s campaign against the deal is justified because it also serves the interests of the Gulf States.
What makes this find so impressive, is that it occurred before the dreaded Mo-toons affair by the Jyllands-Posten.
Tim Benson, the President of the Political Cartoon Society that oversaw the awarding of its top prize to the cartoonist responsible for the infamous Sharon cartoon, was confronted by Martin Himel, asking him why is it that no cartoon depicting an Arab leader in a similar way has ever won the top prize? He responded that, ”well, Jews don’t issue fatwas, now do they?”
NOTE: I asked the documentary film maker, Martin Himel, for permission to upload this segment to YouTube, and he agreed, giving his full permission. It was taken from his film Jenin: Massacring Truth.
In the documentary made by Martin Himel, Jenin: Massacring Truth, IDF soldiers visit the very same journalists in the media in both London and in South Africa, who had smeared them for ‘war crimes’, supposedly having been involved in a ”massacre” in the Jenin refugee camp operation of Defensive Shield, in which a total number of 52 Palestinians, mostly terrorists and 22 IDF soldiers were killed,
The soldiers demanded an official apology from the editors and staff involved, and the film crew was there to get the reactions of the media as they were being confronted.
There’s no utopian solution for guiding human communities.
Daniel Greenfield explains Islam 101:
"Every devout Muslim is an "Islamist". Islam is not a personal religion. It is a religion of the public space. A "moderate" Muslim would have to reject Islam as a religion of the public space, as theocracy, and that secularism would be a rejection of Islam.
Nothing in Islam exists apart from anything else. While liberals view culture and religion as a buffet that they can pick and choose from, it is a single integrated system. If you accept one part, you must accept the whole. Once you accept any aspect of Islam, you must accept its legal system and once you accept that, you must accept its governance and once you accept that, you lose your rights.''
