Henriette Reker is the immigrant-friendly mayoress of Cologne. She made the news in these pages a few times in the past, the first time after she was stabbed in the neck by a “xenophobe” when she was running for mayor. She became notorious after the “groping jihad” on New Year’s Eve of 2015 for remarking that women should stay an arm’s length away from migrant men if they wanted to remain safe.
Ms. Reker visited the new mega-mosque in Cologne on Friday to give a speech at an iftar dinner. She was in full dhimmi mode for the occasion — I’m surprised she wasn’t wearing hijab. You’d be well-advised to keep your antiemetic pills handy while watching the video below.

In Cologne, a Dozen-Muslim March Against Terror
A large Muslim demonstration and march against terrorism were planned for today in Cologne. Thousands of participants were expected. However, when the event kicked off, only a few hundred people showed up. And, if you examine the video footage carefully, you’ll see that most of those visible in the clip are ethnic Germans.
It’s Ramadan, you know — the Muslims were too weak and exhausted to take part…
Egri sent these notes and links earlier today, while the huge mass demo was still ongoing:
Muslims in Germany are holding a demonstration against terror today.
The organizer of this demonstration is a German-Syrian lady named Lamya Kaddor.
I strongly suspect she organized this in response to href=”http://gatesofvienna.net/2017/06/ramadan-am-ring-part-2/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Marek Lieberberg’s asking why you never see Muslims on the streets demonstrating against terror, because she announced this event immediately afterwards.
She was a school teacher for Islam, and — in the eyes of the media and the general public — has become an “Islamic Scholar” and a celebrated public expert on terrorism, since five pupils of hers went to Syria to join the Jihad in 2013 (now that is one hell of a qualification, eh?).
The demonstration right now is trending under the hashtag “#findedenMoslem” (“Spot the Muslim” — like, a needle in the haystack).
In all fairness though, they are probably just staying away because Ditib, the Turkish Islamic organization, said Muslims should not participate, since it is Ramadan, and it would be unreasonable to expect people who haven’t eaten to be out and about in the glaring sun (it is cloudy and 17°C [63°F] in Cologne right now).
Focus: “Just a few hundred participants – Peace March by Muslims turns into a disaster”
Here are two jokes about today’s Muslim march:
- The director says to the cameraman: “Leave the wide-angle at home today.”
2. Not sure if this will get lost in translation, but someone just commented on the Peace March: “New Year’s Eve, there were more Muslims in downtown Cologne” (the groping jihad)
