Turkey to EU: No visa-free, no clampdown on migrants
EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS – (H/T Peperud) Turkey is happy to sign a migrant readmission deal with the EU, but expects the Union to start talks on visa-free travel if it wants to see a clampdown on people sneaking into Greece, a senior diplomat has said.
Noting that the EU has lifted visa requirements for “remote countries,” such as Paraguay and Uruguay, and started visa-free talks with Moldova, Russia and Ukraine, but not Turkey, Ankara’s chief negotiator on EU accession, Egemen Bagis, said: “It’s time to put an end to this nonsense.”
Speaking at a gathering of EU officials and diplomats at the European Policy Centre think-tank in Brussels on Thursday morning (27 January), Mr Bagis lambasted the EU for calling on Ankara to stem irregular migration from Africa and Asia while giving it nothing on visas.
A demand for jiziya/tribute:
“We’re willing to help the EU, but it’s also a matter of taxation,” he said, referring Turkish tax income used to fund the anti-migrant operations. “When our citizens are insulted on a daily basis in the consulates of EU states [when they apply for visas], one may ask the question as to why we should help the EU with their problems, when we are treated this way. Turkey is not an emirate, public opinion does matter. We need to see some good will from the side of the EU.”
“When you beat up somebody physically you get exercise and stress relief; when you assault him verbally on the web you just hurt yourself.”-Sharif El-Gamal
Sharif El Gamal, a waiter Â 5 years ago and now multimillion dollar developer of Ground Zero mosque, just got himself into hot water over trying to spook Raheel Raza, a founding member of the Muslim Canadian Congress, who called the idea of a mosque within 300 metres of Ground Zero in New York “a deliberate provocation.”
True to form, the slick Â soldier of Allah denies he ever tried Â to intimidate Â or threaten Raheel Raza, Â but the number on Raza’s cellphone matches that of El Gamal’s Soho Properties offices in New York.Â Raza says El Gamal’s tone was threatening and she took the phone call as a clear threat against her and not as some claim, a casual phrase meaning goodbye.
“Why would I need Allah’s protection?” asked Raza.
We need to celebrate diversity by acknowledging that Ground Zero is a hallowed site for Muslims as well as for Jews and Christians, and it is only right that they should build a mosque there. Ground Zero is sacred to Islam as being the altar on which 3000 najis kafirsÂ were sacrificed as burnt offerings to Allah (aka Moloch) .
Rauf lies whenever he opens his mouth: how much longer is he allowed to get away with it?
Seeing is believing: Rauf is Â a taqiyya master par excellence who thrives on deception, especially when he’s able to fool a completely clueless, dhimmified audience that sucks the kool aid like Â a strawberry milkshake… Â like here….

Daisy Khan: “When will Muslims be accepted?”
Masters of Deception: Daisy Khan
Daisy Khan is shocked. In a phone conversation with her minutes ago she said she couldn’t believe that what had started out as “a community center for everyone in the neighborhood, to scale up and build up people of all religions has become so skewed. It’s hard for us to imagine we are in the thick of a controversy like this. The Republicans are really going after us.”
Keep talking, Daisy. You are chatting with Sally Quinn about constitutional rights, healing, tolerance, dialogue, etc. but what you are saying, and what we are hearing, is: “We are are here, we are in your face, we are smarter than you, we don’t care about your feelings regarding this mosque, we don’t care about your 3,000 dead, and we are going to put this mosque where we damn well please while preparing to cram your constitution down your throats. Screw you, you ignorant dhimmis.”
I have just finished reading one of the most astoundingly stupid and nasty documents ever to have landed on my desk. It consists of a letter from a law firm in Saudi Arabia, run by a man named Ahmed Zaki Yamani, to a group of newspapers in Scandinavia. I quote directly from its main paragraphs:
Over the past months my law firm has been contacted by several thousand descendants of the Prophet, who have learned about your newspaper’s republication of the drawing, depicting their esteemed ancestor as a terrorist suicide bomber with a bomb in his turban.
As descendants of the Prophet, these individuals feel personally insulted, emotionally distressed and defamed by your newspaper’s re-publication of the drawing. They have therefore retained my law firm and instructed me to approach you …
So that’s the stupid partâ€”the idea that people who claim descent from a seventh-century warlord and preacher have standing to sue for hurt feelings. The nasty bit comes a few paragraphs later:

(CNSNews.com) â€“ After securing an apology from one Danish newspaper for publishing a cartoon satirizing Mohammed, a Saudi lawyer now plans to confront another 15 newspapers, filing lawsuits against them if necessary.
Faisal Yamani says he is acting on behalf of eight Muslim organizations representing “descendants of Mohammed.”
He told the Danish tabloid B.T. that he has 15 newspapers in his sights. His clients have made it clear they are ready to finance a campaign of lawsuits if the papers refuse to follow the example of the liberal daily Politiken and apologize. Yamani did not say how much he would aim to extract from the media organizations but referred to “a long and very expensive legal action.”
“It is against unbelieving and apostate Switzerland that jihad ought to be proclaimed by all means,” Kadhafi said during a speech in the Mediterranean coastal city of Bengazi to mark the birthday of the Muslim Prophet Mohammed.
“Jihad against Switzerland, against Zionism, against foreign aggression is not terrorism,” Kadhafi said.
He’s correct on one thing, jihad is not terrorism – if you’re a Muslim that is.
Jihad is the (usually unmentioned) 6th pillar of islamic belief and a religious obligation for Moslems.
It is encumbent on Muslims to wage jihad on the infidel till all submit to the Muslim god Allah.
That last sentence carries his jihad into the whole world. That is consistent with the teaching of Islam’s holy books. Anyone who opposes the advance of Islam, for any reason, is considered an aggressor, holding back the will of Allah for a universal Islamic state. Â Gaddafi’s statements clearly call for offensive warfare, but Muslims will tell you that he is merely “defending” Islam.
It is interesting that he refers to “apostate Switzerland”, which in his queer and twisted psyche implies that Switzerland was once Islamic and has been “led astray” by unbelief….
Blackmail: Halal Butcher Ahmed doesn’t want animals stunned before cutting their throats, because that’s not “proper” halal. Only if Muslims do it “correctly”, the cruel practice is acceptable. If its not done ‘correctly’ that means NZ could lose a great deal of its meat exports. Animal cruelty and hygiene doesn’t come into play…. In Europe, the industry has a long history of scandals….
At that time I was asking how much will NZ bend over to please the Mohammedans?
“You won’t get our business if you don’t submit to Islam”
Indonesia’s highest authority on Islamic affairs, the Council of Ulema (MUI), has signalled a hard line on imports from New Zealand and other Western nations.
It plans to insist that all imported food labelled as halal is sold only if it has the council’s own halal certification.
Which means: import Muslims and let them control it. Let them settle in what they perceive to be behind enemy lines, Â build mosques and madrassas for them and establish Islam….
Islam has religious rules for halal food, including specific requirements for how animals should be slaughtered.
A nice little scam:
MUI’s Food, Drugs and Cosmetic Assessment Institute is the sole issuer of halal certificates for such goods.
Ma’ruf Amin, one of the chairmen of the council, said many products imported from New Zealand – and other Western countries such as the United States and Australia – carried halal labels but the MUI did not always trust their certification standards.
Mr Ma’ruf told the Jakarta Globe the move was intended “to make sure that all products labelled halal are truly halal”.
The announcement is in line with signals Indonesia gave last year that it would no longer recognise the two existing certification authorities in New Zealand, Islamic Meat Management and the Federation of Islamic Associations.
Trade Minister Tim Groser said at the time that the Indonesian plan to ban $100 million of New Zealand beef imports – and potentially $450 million worth of dairy exports – from 2010 required a long-term solution.
Since then, John Key’s Government has announced that the Food Safety Authority will provide oversight for organisations which certify halal meat to “standardise” halal certification.
The oversight may yet be extended to dairy products.
Mid-East princess in plea to Rudd on halal slaughter
Apologies for posting this late, the article is from 02 Nov, 2009 but it seems that not everyone is keen on this halal racket:
THE King of Jordan’s sister has appealed to the Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, to stop the ritual slaughter of conscious animals for halal meat in Australia, saying it was not necessary under Islamic principles.
Princess Alia bint al-Hussein of Jordan, who is the sister of King Abdullah II of Jordan, said she had written to Mr Rudd saying that any lowering of animal welfare standards in Australia for religious reasons would be a blow to the country’s reputation and undermine progress in the Middle East.
“Contrary to some claims, killing without stunning is not necessary under Islamic principles,” she said.
Muslims around the world are awaiting the conclusion of Turkey’s half-century-old application to join the European Union as a sign of tolerance from the West, a Turkish official said on Friday.
“This process is very closely monitored, followed and evaluated by 1.5 billion Muslims in the world,” Egemen Bagis, minister for EU affairs, told Reuters. “Every meeting I have with my European counterparts, I can feel the pressure of these 1.5 billion people on my shoulders.”
* Is there nobody in the whole of Europe to nail this headbangers coffee-filter to his skull and send him back with seasons greetings? Why should we care about the “pressure” by billions of Muselmanic Â lunatics?
Turkey, which straddles Europe and Asia, applied for membership to the EU’s forerunner in 1959 and became an EU candidate in 1999, but remains far from membership. The issue remains politically divisive among the bloc’s member states.
If the EU turns its back on Turkey, not only “Muslims all around the world, but all people, all humans, will somehow feel that they have been isolated from the West,” Bagis said.
* Â “all people, all humans..”- Â remember: only Muslims are human, unbelievers are the vilest of creatures…
“If a country like Turkey … is still discriminated against … then the message that those billions of people get is going to be a very negative message.
The second Turkey is accepted into the EU, the rest of the Muslim world will followÂ >Â the end of Europe.
Muslims around the world condemned China’s crackdown in Xinjiang with thousands taking part in anti-Chinese protests across Turkey. At least 156 people have been killed in unrest in Xinjiang over the past week and the Islamic world has sought to bring attention to the plight of Muslim Uygurs in the Chinese region. In Istanbul, about 5,000 people demonstrated outside the Fatih mosque after Friday prayers, according to NTV television. ”No To Ethnic Cleansing” demonstrators chanted, while burning mainland products.
Massacred child by Turkey
About 700 people took part in a similar demonstration at the Kocatepe mosque in Ankara. Other protests were held in seven other Turkish towns. Uygurs are Turkic speakers and Turkey, while recognizing Chinese sovereignty in Xinjiang, has been particularly outspoken on the Uygur case.
The Armenian genocide by Turkey
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the violence in Xinjiang was ”an atrocity” while Trade and Industry Minister Nihat Ergun has called for a boycott of mainland goods.
For Barack Obama, it wasn’t enough to take over an auto manufacture and declare, with a straight face, that he had no interest in running a car company, while firing its CEO, restructuring its debt, replacing its board, and going over its production plans in exacting detail. NOr was it enough to merely illegally defraud legitimate creditors in this shady scheme. No, the President had to add insult to injury by lying about the nature of the creditors victimized by his treachery. Calling them names and slandaring them while ripping them off, Obama has revealed himself as a shamless demogogue, willing to thwart the rule of law to gain power for himself and to reward corrupt contributors.
The European UnionÂ urged Prime Minister-designate Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday to craft a government that embraces the long-standing goal of an independent Palestinian state livingÂ side by sideÂ with Israel.
The prospect of a new hawkish government, with Israel Beiteinu chairman Avigdor Lieberman as a possible foreign minister, will be seen in Europe as a setback to the Middle East peace process.
“Let me say very clearly that the wayÂ the European UnionÂ will relate to an [Israeli] government that is not committed to a two-state solution will be very, very different,” said Javier Solana, the EU’s foreign and security affairs chief.
* Â Is anti-Zionism hate?
Yes. It is more dangerous than anti-Semitism, threatening lives and peace in the Middle East.
Anti-Zionism rejects the very notion that Jews are a nation — a collective bonded by a common history — and, accordingly, denies Jews the right to self-determination in their historical birthplace. It seeks the dismantling of the Jewish nation-state: Israel.Â Â More from WaPo

Egyptian Cleric Muhammad Hussein Ya’qoub: The Jews Are the Enemies of Muslims Regardless of the Occupation of Palestine
Following are excerpts from a speech delivered byÂ Egyptian cleric Muhammad Hussein Ya’qoub, which aired on Al-Rahma TV on January 17, 2009.
Muhammad Hussein Ya’qoub: If the Jews left Palestine to us, would we start loving them? Of course not. We will never love them. Absolutely not. The Jews are infidels â€“ not because I say so, and not because they are killing Muslims, but because Allah said: “The Jews say that Uzair is the son of Allah, and the Christians say that Christ is the son of Allah. These are the words from their mouths. They imitate the sayings of the disbelievers before. May Allah fight them. How deluded they are.” It is Allah who said that they are infidels.
