United Against Nothing

Tim Blair gives us a taste of what reporting will be like under Islam:

NOTHING STRIKES AGAIN

Various French media outlets last week announced they will stop publishing the names and images of Islamic terrorists.

PARIS, May 15, 2018 – Seven people were killed yesterday and dozens injured when nothing happened at Paris’s Gare du Nord railway station.

French officials said nobody detonated anything in particular near the station’s crowded entrance on the Rue de Dunkerque. Witnesses said loud cries of “Nothing! Nothing at all!” were heard seconds before the simultaneous non-occurrences.

It is the third time in as many weeks that nothing has happened in Paris, which is now under full military curfew as police struggle to contain the city’s insurgent unidentified community.

“The French people are united in their war against an unknowable and featureless void,” declared French President Francois Hollande, who vowed to “track down and bring to justice all of those who were not involved in anything.”

Will Europe Refuse to Kneel like the Heroic French Priest?

by Giulio Meotti, Gatestone Institute

  • Go around Europe these days: you will find not a single rally to protest the murder of Father Jacques Hamel. The day an 85-year-old priest was killed in a French church, nobody said “We are all Catholics”.
  • Even Pope Francis, in front of the most important anti-Christian event on Europe’s soil since the Second World War, stood silent and said that Islamists look “for money”. The entire Vatican clergy refused to say the word “Islam”.
  • Ritually, after each massacre, Europe’s media and politicians repeat the story of “intelligence failures” — a fig leaf to avoid mentioning Islam and its project of the conquest of Europe. It is the conventional code of conduct after any Islamist attack.
  • Europe looks condemned to a permanent state of siege. But what if, one day, after more bloodshed and attacks in Europe, Europe’s governments begin negotiating, with the mainstream Islamic organizations, the terms of submission of democracies to Islamic sharia law? Cartoons about Mohammed have already disappeared from the European media, and the scapegoating of Israel and the Jews started long time ago. After the attack at the church, the French media decided even to stop publishing photos of the terrorists. This is the brave response to jihad by our mainstream media

Imagine the scene: the morning Catholic mass in the northern French town of Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, an almost empty church, three parishioners, two nuns and a very old priest. Knife-wielding ISIS terrorists interrupt the service and slit the throat of Father Jacques Hamel. This heartbreaking scene illuminates the state of Christianity in Europe.

Father Jacques Hamel was murdered this week, in the church of Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, by Islamic jihadists.

It happened before. In 1996 seven French monks were slaughtered in Algeria. In 2006, a priest was beheaded in Iraq. In 2016, this horrible Islamic ritual took place in the heart of European Christianity: the Normandy town where Father Hamel was murdered is the location of the trial of Joan of Arc, the heroine of French Christianity.

France had been repeatedly warned: Europe’s Christians will meet the same fate of their Eastern brethren. But France refused to protect either Europe’s Christians or Eastern ones. When, a year ago, the rector of the Great Mosque of Paris, Dalil Boubakeur, suggested transforming empty French churches (like that one in Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray) into mosques, only a few French intellectuals, led by Alain Finkielkraut and Pascal Bruckner, signed the appeal entitled, “Do not touch my church” (“Touche pas à mon église“) in defense of France’s Christian heritage. Laurent Joffrin, director of the daily newspaper Libération, led a left-wing campaign against the appeal, describing the signers as “decrepit and fascist“.

For years, French socialist mayors have approved, in fact, the demolition of churches or their conversion into mosques (the same goal as ISIS but by different, “peaceful” means). Except in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés quarter of Paris, and in some beautiful areas such as the Avignon Festival, France is experiencing a dramatic crisis of identity.

While the appeal to save France’s churches was being demonized or ignored, the same fate was suffered by endangered Eastern Christian being exterminated by ISIS. “It is no longer possible to ignore this ethnic and cultural cleansing”, reads an appeal signed by the usual combative “Islamophobic” intellectuals, such as Elisabeth Badinter, Jacques Julliard and Michel Onfray. In March, the newspaper Le Figaro accused the government of Manuel Valls of abandoning the Christians threatened with death by ISIS by refusing to grant them visas.

Go around Europe these days: you will find not a single rally to protest the killing of Father Hamel. In January 2015, after the murderous attack on Charlie Hebdo, the French took to the streets to say “Je suis Charlie”. After July 26, 2016, the day an 85-year-old priest was murdered in a church, nobody said “We are all Catholics”. Even Pope Francis, in the face of the most important anti-Christian event on Europe’s soil since the Second World War, stood silent and said that Islamists look “for money“. The entire Vatican clergy refused to write or say the word “Islam”.

Truth is coming from very few writers. “Religions overcome other religions; police can help little if one is not afraid of death.” With these words, six months after the massacre at the magazine Charlie Hebdo, the writer Michel Houellebecq spoke with the Revue des Deux Mondes. Our elite should read it after every massacre before filling up pages on “intelligence failures.”

It is not as if one more French gendarmerie vehicle could have stopped the Islamist who slaughtered 84 people in Nice. Perhaps. Maybe. But that is not the point. Ritually, after each massacre, Europe’s media and politicians repeat the story of “intelligence failures”. In the case of the attack in Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, the story is about a terrorist who was placed under surveillance.

The “intelligence failure” theory is a fig leaf to avoid mentioning Islam and its project of the conquest of Europe. It is the conventional code of conduct after any Islamist attack. Then they add: “Retaliation” creates a spiral of violence; you have to work for peace and show good intentions. Then, in two or three weeks, comes the fatal “we deserve it”. For what? For having a religion different from them?

We always hear the same voices, as in some great game of dissimulation and collective disorientation in which no one even knows which enemy to beat. But, after all, is it not much more comforting to talk about “intelligence” instead of the Islamists who try, by terror and sharia, to force the submission of us poor Europeans?

Europe looks condemned to a permanent state of siege. But what if, one day, after more bloodshed and attacks in Europe, Europe’s governments begin negotiating, with the mainstream Islamic organizations, the terms of submission of democracies to Islamic sharia law? Cartoons about Mohammed and the “crime” of blasphemy have already disappeared from the European media, and the scapegoating of Israel and the Jews started long time ago.

After the attack at the church, the French media decided even to stop publishing photos of the terrorists. This is the brave response to jihad by our mainstream media, who also showed lethal signs of cowardice during the Charlie Hebdo crisis.

The only hope today comes from an 85-year-old French priest, who was murdered by Islamists after a simple, noble gesture: he refused to kneel in front of them. Will humiliated and indolent Europe do the same?

July 20, 1974 Flashback: “Secular” Turkey’s Brutal Jihad Conquest and Islamization of Northern Cyprus

Forty-two years ago today, July 20, 1974, the “secular” Turkish army, consistent with its Sharia-supremacist Ottoman ancestors, and their predatory 16th century jihad conquest of Cyprus [see Hill’s understated description of the 1571 capture of Famagusta: “The reader may be spared the description of the horrors which were such as usually occurred at the capture of any Christian city by the Turks,” but he does annotate a chronicler’s “dilations” on them,  about “how his mother’s head was cut off; but what shocked him most, apparently, was that the Turks killed all the swine they found, and their carcasses were mingled with the human corpses” of their Christian victims; Sir George Hill, A History of Cyprus, 1948, Volume 3, p. 984], launched a jihad re-conquest of the island’s northern sections. By mid-August the invading modern Turkish army jihadists occupied 38% of the island, affecting a de facto partition of Cyprus, and engaging in overt re-Islamization efforts thoroughly inconsistent with the delusive, counterfactual trope that Turkey’s military was (and remains), somehow, an agent of “secularization.”

Northern Cyprus’ 1974 Islamization began immediately upon the Turkish army’s occupation, as described from primary (and triumphal) Turkish media sources compiled by Professor Christos P. Ioannides (“In Turkey’s Image” [1991], pp. 177ff):

France: church of murdered priest ‘extends a special welcome to our Muslim friends”

There is no cure for stupid. Looks like these Muslims were there to make sure no kafir said the wrong thing. “Time has come to come together so as not to be divided”-said  Dalil Boubakeur, the emir of Paris.

Muslims in France, Italy join Catholic mass to mourn French priest

Muslims in France have attended Catholic mass in churches and cathedrals across the country in a show of solidarity following the gruesome murder of a French priest. Interfaith services were also held in Italy.

Muslim worshippers observe a minute of silence in front of the Saint Etienne church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, near Rouen, France, 29 July 2016Muslim worshipers observe a minute of silence outside the Saint Etienne church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray on July 29

Dozens of Muslims were among the faithful who packed into the Gothic cathedral in the town of Rouen, northern France, on Sunday.

Policemen and soldiers stood guard outside, seeking to reassure a jittery community five days after two jihadi teenagers killed an 85-year-old priest inside a church just a few kilometers away in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray.

“This morning we extend a special welcome to our Muslim friends,” Rouen Archbishop Dominique Lebrun said in his homily.

“I thank you in the name of all Christians. In this way you are affirming that you reject death and violence in the name of God.”

A number of Muslim leaders attended the service, along with three nuns who were at the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray when Father Jacques Hamel was brutally murdered at the altar.

The killing gave rise to questions about lapses in security after it was reported that both 19-year-old offenders were known to authorities and had attempted to reach Syria. There were also fears the attack could create possible tensions between the religions and add to divisions in French society.

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls on Sunday called for a new “pact” with the country’s 5 million Muslims, which make up the largest Muslim population in Europe.

“Islam has found its place in France… contrary to the repeated attacks of populists on the right and far-right,” he said, calling for the rejection of Islam to be combatted “with the greatest strength.”

Churches in other French cities also opened their doors to Muslims on Sunday. Dalil Boubakeur, the rector of the Mosque of Paris, was among those who attended congregation in the capital’s iconic Notre Dame cathedral.

“The situation is serious,” he told broadcaster BFMTV. “Time has come to come together so as not to be divided.”
Multifaith services were held across Italy too, notably at Rome’s Santa Maria di Trastevere church. In Naples, Abdullah Cozzolino from Italy’s Islamic Confederation spoke in the Treasure of St. Gennaro chapel next to the Duomo cathedral, stressing the “need of dialogue, more affirmation of shared values of peace, of solidarity, of love, out of respect for our one God, merciful and compassionate.”

Afghan Smashes Up Church “Because I am a Muslim”, Media Reports “He Was Drunk”

By Robert Spencer

And the first thing Western leaders will say is, “No, you did not actually do this because you’re a Muslim. You did this because you’re poor, or disenfranchised, or discriminated against. We need to give you a job and some cash, and all will be well.”

The second thing they will say is, “More migrants. Bring us more!” The mainstream media, by covering up such incidents, aids in the migrant importation enterprise by keeping the public as ignorant as possible about the devastation the Muslim migrants are causing.

Because I am Muslim

“‘Because I am a Muslim’: Media cover-up in Germany as Afghan smashes up church,” Diversity Macht Frei, July 29, 2016:

It happened a week ago, but the police kept quiet about the incident and the church management did not file a complaint, it has only just come out: last Friday a 19-year-old Afghan stormed into the Versöhnungskirche [Church of Reconciliation] at around 7.20 pm in an open community evening in the Eilbek district of Hamburg. He threw chairs and benches around, kicked over a Bible stand, splintered the glass and threw hymn books onto the ground. According to an eye-witness, the church-goes present were very afraid and let him continue his destruction. No wonder, he was wearing swirling Islamic dress, which might have hidden a suicide belt.

The Muslim did not speak during his destructive rage and also had no connections to Salafists, therefore the State Protection department of the state criminal prosecution agency assumes there was no “Islamist” motive.

…Eyewitness Peter H, who sent PI the photo of the Afghan attacker, reports that he asked the Muslim in front of the church why he had done it as he ended his affray. The Afghan then screamed the answer: “Because I am a Muslim!”

All resistance to jihad is “bigotry”

In featuring grieving Muslim parents, WaPo, DNC imply all resistance to jihad is bigotry

BY 

The Washington Post has been biased in its coverage of the Trump campaign, to say the least, and was banned from a Trump-Pence rally, after which a follow-up article declared: “that should scare the hell out of you”. Well, it sure angered the hell out of the Washington Post.

A follow-up attack took aim for Trump’s “jugular” and shoved the raw emotions of a grieving Muslim couple into its headlines — the same couple who took the stage at the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia, as Jihad Watch noted here.

The couple spoke of their son, Captain Humayun Khan of the US Army, who was stationed in Iraq and killed by jihadists 12 years ago in an attack explosion. Parents do not get over the death of their children, and the Washington Post in a feature report — with full video included, and a link to the Arlington Cemetery where the young captain died as a hero — elected this couple to do their dirty work in a low attempt to besmirch Trump, as seen in the article below.

Agreed with Humayun’s father, Khizr Khan, about his statement: “Go look at the graves of the brave patriots who died defending America — you will see all faiths, genders, and ethnicities”, and indeed, that must never be forgotten. But the Post and the DNC presented this in service of a truly ominous agenda.

The implication presented by the Washington Post and the DNC as they featured Khizr Khan and the story of his son is that Trump — and by extension all those who aim to protect the American public by targeting jihadists with zero tolerance — are not just opposed to jihad terror, but anti-Muslim, and only appreciative of contributions to America based on faith and ethnicity.

Shame on the Washington Post and the Democratic National Convention for fanning the flames of the us-versus-them mentality in the course of their attack on Trump, and preying on the grieving family of Captain Humayun Khan to fuel their agenda.

Eight arguments we use to excuse terrorism

Make it seven. For some reason, Laura McNally missed #4

By Laura McNally

Our discourse on terrorism is a bad record that has been stuck on repeat for decades. And it won’t matter whether I write this today, in a week, a month, or a year. Because with each new attack, the dialogue is only pushed deeper into discord and away from examining terror.

Rather than terror attacks inciting a more thorough and informed understanding of terrorism, there is a predictable tsunami of excuse-making, victim-blaming and sidestepping of the actual issue.

While it’s great that some people believe sharia law can be interpreted in a positive way, or that Muslim people are their best friends, this is not actually addressing terrorism. This political pointscoring is increasingly blocking the public from developing better understandings of, and solutions to, terrorism.

Argument 1: Islam has nothing to do with terrorism

This kind of denial relies on the public to ignore all data on terror: the imams who preach hate, the holy texts that demand it, the statistics that show fairly significant portions of Islamic nations support terrorism, and the lists of registered terrorist groups wherein the vast majority are Islamic.

Instead, this argument relies on the theologians who insist that on some intellectual or spiritual level, their interpretation of Islam reflects peace. Certainly, that may well be their interpretation. But unfortunately that is not the reality for all followers.

Germany: Merkelsommer Madness

Tim Blair 

“How is your Merkelsommer going?” asks Douglas Murray:

Britain’s geographical good fortune, relative success in limiting weapons and our justified scepticism of the undiscriminating “open borders” brigade mean we have so far been spared the delights of what Angela Merkel’s growing army of critics call her summer of terror …

It is now a fortnight since Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel shouted “Allahu Akbar” and ploughed a truck along the Nice seafront, killing 84.

The following Monday Muhammad Riyad, who said he was from Afghanistan but almost certainly came from Pakistan, screamed “Allahu Akbar” while hacking with an axe at his fellow passengers on a Bavarian train.

The next day Mohamed Boufarkouch shouted “Allahu Akbar” and stabbed a Frenchwoman and her three daughters (aged eight, 12 and 14) near Montpelier.

Police playfully interact with a traditional Merkelsommer elf.

Mixing things up a little, that Friday’s shooter in Munich was a child of Iranians called Ali David Sonboly.

Skip forward a couple of days and a “Syrian asylum seeker” with a machete was hacking a pregnant woman to death in Stuttgart.

The next day another “Syrian asylum seeker”, Mohammad Daleel, carried out a suicide bombing outside a bar in Ansbach, Bavaria.

And a little over 24 hours later two men shouting the name of ISIS entered a church near Rouen during Mass, took the nuns and congregation hostage and slaughtered the priest with a knife.

That’s a lot of irritants for just one summer. Read on.

The Wretched Lies of the German Media About the Murder in Reutlingen

Last Sunday a Syrian culture-enricher ran amok with a machete in a restaurant in the German town of Reutlingen. Since then a number of rumors have circulated about the relationship between young Mohammed and the Polish woman that he killed. Below is a brief account from a German site that tries to set the record straight. It was drawn from Polish sources, and has been translated into English by Rembrandt Clancy.

Machete Terror: The Wretched Lies of the German Media about the Murder in Reutlingen

German language source: Deutschland-Luege
German language source taken from Polish: FACT24.PL
Translation: Rembrandt Clancy

Machete-Terror: The wretched lies from the German media about the murder in Reutlingen are coming slowly to light.

Here is a short summary of the facts from the Polish press.

The dead Polish woman, a single-parent mother, leaves behind two children. The youngest child is eight years old. The murdered woman had no relationship with the Syrian and he had not worked in the sandwich bar!

Three months ago she started work in the kebab snack bar as kitchen help in order to earn money for the family/the children. On Sunday she had just returned after visiting her family in Poland.

The relentless media jihad against the Buddhists of Burma
