Multiculturalism: “Cult of Ignorance”

By Dymphna:

Mark Steyn is always funny. But behind the wit is a dark truth: on the slippery slope where multiculturalists live and move and have their being, your facts are merely opinions. Theiropinions — the multiculturalists’ ruling dogmas — are incontrovertible facts, they are the credos which every thinking sensitive, feeling person accepts as gospel truths and can recite by heart. They include the enthronement of worthy victims and the promulgation of chronic aggrievement as a constitutional right.

The Counterjihad is a subset within the larger pushback against the damage multiculturalism inflicts on the West in particular, though the damage proceeds apace in Third World primitive societies that buy into the ruling dogma for their own benefit. Especially do the despots who rule these places buy the benefits. Their unfree citizens? Not so much.

Thus we will continue to report on the depredations inflicted by the politically correct, multicultural fallacies that wreak such harm. These restrictions through which the Political Class attempts to eradicate our “ancient liberties” are impoverishing us all.

Let me amend that: our liberties aren’t ancient so much as they are inherent in the human condition, but all too often honored in the breach rather than the reality. The damage to the West’s cultural fabric by the Marxist/Islamic juggernaut has been grievous and unjust; no surer proof of that destruction is the ongoing disappearance of the middle class. Watch this amazing graphic to see the middle class vanish over decades in just one city (Chicago), which is now deeply in debt and floundering on the path to Detroit’s fate. Is it happening in Europe, too? I don’t know, but in America the pace of the ruination is increasing; that destruction is aided and abetted by Islam’s weapons of discord, divisiveness, and the push for an aggrieved victim class.

In the video, Mr. Steyn points out what one “tiny, miserable grey island in the North Atlantic” managed to accomplish. The great horror is the ways in which that hard-won knowledge is being buried beneath the strew and slander of the deliberate ignorance of those who want only its subjugation under a theocratic supremacy. Those currently in power chant a mantra about the ways “poverty breeds ignorance”, etc., while their own educated ignorance reduces all facts to mere opinion.

The latest strong-arming of those who dissent from their gospel? Numerous pronouncements are being issued by multiculturalists in the Anglosphere that climate “dissenters/deniers” should be jailed or otherwise silenced for their refusal to bow to the politically correct Truths proving that it is the dastardly behavior of human beings which is surely causing the earth to heat up to irrevocably dangerous levels.

Here’s a post noting the increasingly alarmist nature of the despotic desire to close the climate argument since ‘the consensus is decided’. More likely, ‘the fix is in’. Too much money — not to mention science reputations — has been shoveled into projects of dubious value for the investors to be able to let go easily.

That post is just one observation of the frantic chorus of “Silence Them” which is proliferating throughout the multicultural press and purported science departments in academia. You can do a search using a string similar to this: climate change deniers punishment. You’ll find a surprising number of countries ready to pounce.

On the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day — What Are Feminists Doing About Honor Killings?

Phyllis Chesler

Phyllis Chesler

By :

Editor’s note: The following is adapted from a speech delivered on March 8 by the author in observance of  Women’s History Month to theGender Fairness Committee of the New York City Supreme Court.

When my Second Wave generation of feminists started out, Gender Fairness committees did not exist nor did as many women lawyers and judges or the number of feminist lawyers, both male and female, whom I see here today. As many of you know, my or should I say, our generation had the privilege of changing all that.

We also named and exposed the hidden epidemic of physical and sexual violence towards women and children.

Second Wave feminists challenged sexism in advertising, (we still do), the pornography industry, (which has grown), and prostitution which now includes human sexual trafficking.

We also challenged corporations for economically discriminating against women; that work continues. We took on drug companies whose medications caused women to die from cancer. We championed women’s reproductive and sexual rights but we also challenged birth control. We waged a war to save women’s lives. The work continues.

Courtesy of Second Wave feminist activism, more women entered previously all-male professions, and some men became feminists.

Before the Second Wave began making waves, mothers received little child support and less alimony—that has improved although custody battles have, in some ways, gotten harder, more terrible. The 25th anniversary edition of “Mothers on Trial” will be published this summer with eight new chapters.

Our generation had a universalist vision of human rights—one standard for all. I still do. While I believe in cultural diversity, I am not a multi-cultural relativist. Therefore, I have taken a strong stand against the persecution of Muslim women and dissidents. Thus, I now submit expert courtroom affidavits on behalf of Muslim girls and women who have fled being honor murdered and are seeking asylum here.

Those of us who expose the plight of such women, and this includes Somali-born feminist hero Ayaan Hirsi Ali, as well as myself, have been demonized as “Islamophobes” and racists because we do not, in the same breath, blame America, the West, or Israel for their suffering.

In my view, western academic feminists, including gay liberationists, are so afraid of being condemned as “colonialists” or “racists” that this fear trumps their concern for women’s rights in the Arab and Muslim world.

What is Islamic Gender Apartheid? Islamic gender apartheid is characterized by normalized daughter- and wife-battering, forced veiling, female genital mutilation, polygamy, purdah, (the segregation or sequestration of women), arranged marriage, child marriage, first cousin marriage; girls and women are honor murdered if they resist such practices, if they wish to divorce a dangerously abusive husband, and if they are viewed as too independent, too modern.

Today, at its most extreme, Islamic gender apartheid is characterized by acid attacks, public stonings, hangings, and beheading of women in Iran, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen, and Saudi Arabia—countries in which girls and women who are raped are further victimized: jailed, tortured, and executed.

Feminists should be crying out from the rooftops against these practices. Some are. I am. Yet, many Muslim men and women, as well as many intellectually “progressive” western infidels, are not. They are demanding or welcoming the imposition of Islamic religious law, Sharia law, not only in Egypt and Saudi Arabia but also in the West.

I have published two academic studies and nearly 100 articles about honor killings both in the West and in the Islamic world. How is an honor killing defined? An honor killing is a collaborative conspiracy carried out against one victim, usually a young girl, by her family of origin. Both her male and female relatives believe that their “honor” demands her death; that her “impure” behavior has shamed and destroyed her family’s reputation and community status. A battered wife—or one who dares leave her tormentor—may also be “honor murdered” by both her husband, assisted by his relatives, and to an extent, the wife’s relatives as well.

In the West, honor killings are a mainly Muslim-on-Muslim crime. Hindus and Sikhs perpetrate such killings but mainly in India, not in the West.

An honor killing is not the same as western domestic violence or western domestically violent femicide. Many honorable feminists disagree with me. They believe that honor killings are the same as western domestic violence. Understandably, such feminists fear that by singling out one group for behavior which may be common to all groups they will stigmatize the token group and minimize the suffering of all the other groups. They have a legitimate fear—and yet if, for reasons of “political correctness,” we fail to understand a crime, we will never be able to prevent or to prosecute it.

Honor killings are shameful, secretive; they are allowed to flourish and fester precisely because the perpetrators and their collaborators do not want them exposed. Instead, they blame the victim, and they blame those who expose it.

I began writing about honor killings in the United States, Canada, and Europe in 2004. My first study about such honor killings first appeared in 2009 in Middle East Quarterly, the second appeared there as well in 2010. In the most recent publication, I studied 230 victims who were honor—or “horror” murdered on five continents over a twenty year period in 172 separate incidents. (More than one person was murdered in some of the incidents).

A murder is a murder and must be treated as such. However, honor killings are not like western domestic violence or domestically violent femicide.

UK: Child Sex Slavery, Multiculturalism and Islam

by Soeren Kern:

“[T]he agencies responsible for child-protection have almost entirely failed in their job to protect vulnerable children. From a fear of being called ‘racist,’ police forces across the country have buried the evidence…. Political correctness would be used to make sure that people did not speak about this phenomenon.” — from Easy Meat: Multiculturalism, Islam and Child Sex Slavery

“[A] 2010 document by the Rotherham Safeguarding Children Board stated that, ‘great care will be taken in drafting…this report to ensure that its findings embrace Rotherham’s qualities of diversity. It is imperative that discussions of a wider cultural phenomenon are avoided.’” — from Easy Meat: Multiculturalism, Islam and Child Sex Slavery

British authorities enforcing political correctness have allowed Muslim paedophile gangs to sexually abuse children with impunity for more than two decades, according to a comprehensive new study that examines the harrowing epidemic of child grooming in towns and cities across Britain.

The meticulously documented report, entitled, “Easy Meat: Multiculturalism, Islam and Child Sex Slavery,” shows how officials in England and Wales were aware of rampant child grooming—the process by which sexual predators befriend and build trust with children in order to prepare them for abuse—by Muslim gangs since at least 1988.

Rather than taking steps to protect British children, however, police, social workers, teachers, neighbors, politicians and the media deliberately downplayed the severity of the crimes perpetrated by the grooming gangs in order to avoid being accused of “Islamophobia” or racism.

The conspiracy of silence was not broken until November 2010, when it was leaked that police in Derbyshire had carried out an undercover investigation—dubbed Operation Retriever—and arrested 13 members of a Muslim gang for grooming up to 100 underage girls for sex.

 

Seven members of a child sex grooming gang in Oxford who were found guilty in 2013 (clockwise from top left): Kamar Jamil, Akhtar Dogar, Anjum Dogar, Assad Hussain, Mohammed Karrar, Bassam Karrar, and Zeeshan Ahmed.
They were sentenced to a combined 95 years in prison for raping, torturing and trafficking British girls as young as 11.

Shortly thereafter, the Times of London published the results of a groundbreaking investigation into the sexual exploitation and internal trafficking of girls in the Midlands and the north of England. In January 2011, the newspaper reported that in 17 court cases since 1997 in which groups of men were prosecuted for grooming 11 to 16 year old girls, 53 of the 56 men found guilty were Asian, 50 of them Muslim, and just three were white.

In September 2012, the Times published another exposé that revealed the hidden truth about the sale and extensive use of British children for sex. The article showed that organized groups of Muslim men were able to groom, pimp and traffic girls across the country with virtual impunity. Although offenders were identified to police, they were not prosecuted. A child welfare expert interviewed by the newspaper said the government’s reluctance to tackle such street grooming networks represented “the biggest child protection scandal of our time.”

********

But this is “just the tip of the iceberg,” according to a document published by the House of Commons, which estimates that at least 20,000 British children are at risk of sexual exploitation by grooming gangs.

Meanwhile, prosecutions are few and far between. The report calculates that for every man convicted of such crimes, there are between two to ten other men who were directly implicated, but for whom there was insufficient evidence to secure a conviction. “If this is true,” the authors write, “it means that with this crime there are very many perpetrators getting away with it.”

Finally, the authors of the report examine the links between Islamic culture and doctrine and the crime of child grooming. They note:

“There is not one case where it was non-Muslim men grooming Muslim girls, and that despite the fact that 95% of the men in Britain are not Muslims…There is no evidence at all that non-Muslim men are grooming Muslim children, but ample evidence that Muslim men are directing their grooming at non-Muslim schoolgirls.”

At the same time, “the notion that Islam could be the basis for this criminality is always ruled out of the question, with no investigation of Islamic theology, the history of Islam, or the rulings of Sharia law.”

The authors then provide a thorough examination of Islamic sacred texts (pp. 222-268) and conclude, among other observations:

1) “The laws in various Islamic states show that they think that Aisha [who was married to Mohammad at the age of six] was under 10 when Mohammed had sex with her. And to Muslims, Mohammed is regarded as the perfect man; it is part of their religion that they should emulate his behavior.”

2) “Muslim men are taught in mosques that women are second-class citizens, little more than chattels or possessions over whom they have absolute authority.”

3) “The Koran makes a distinction between legal wives and slaves, and instructs Muslim men that they can have sex with either their wives or their slaves.”

4) “Not only are Muslim men permitted legally and morally to rape their slaves, but they are also forgiven if they turn a slave girl into a prostitute.”

5) “There are also features of Islam which are supremacist and which look with contempt at non-Muslims.”

6) “The Hadiths also permit Muslims to rape women who are captured after a battle (whereupon they become the property of Muslims, that is, they become slaves).”

At the same time, British judges are increasingly using Islamic Sharia law to justify light sentences for Muslims who rape underage girls:

“As late as May 2013, the media were reporting that a Muslim man in Nottingham who had ‘raped’ an underage girl, was spared a prison term after the judge heard that the naïve 18-year-old attended an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless. Rashid told psychologists he had no idea that having sex with a willing 13-year-old was against the law; besides, his education had taught him to believe that ‘women are no more worthy than a lollipop that has been dropped on the ground.’”

The report is emphatic in blaming the doctrine of multiculturalism for Britain’s lack of resolve in confronting the grooming gangs:

“Multiculturalism is a fundamentally incoherent doctrine, invented to conceal the serious conflicts which have arisen when peoples from vastly different cultures, with different values, are forced to live together.”

“Political correctness and the doctrine of multiculturalism meant that the professionals whose job it was to help the vulnerable were consciously commanding that these diverse cultural values could not be discussed.”

“Multiculturalism came about in order to deny that there is any significance to cultures having different values and to conceal that there will be conflict when these incompatible values come together. Political correctness is the means by which such denial is enforced.”

“Those who propound and defend multiculturalism say that people from different cultural backgrounds have different values, and that we must all accept these values as being of equal validity. But when it comes to examining what those different values are, multiculturalists suddenly lose interest in the details of these differences and lose interest in the consequences that follow from these different values. Yet we have seen, that even those Muslims who are classified as liberal or moderate have views which would be considered extreme if those views were espoused by a non-Muslim in Britain. Are we really surprised that conflicts and problems arise when communities with different values are living side-by-side? These conflicts are just concealed by the advocates of multiculturalism. Proponents of multiculturalism dare not examine the views of Islamic fundamentalists, that (significant) minority of Muslims in Britain who want Sharia law.”

“Multiculturalists think that Muslims will embrace multiculturalism; yet Islam was established 1,300 years ago to destroy multiculturalism.”

“Islamic society is a totalitarian society, all other values are to be subordinated to Islamic values. But if anyone in Britain dares to criticize Islam, they will be denounced and told they live in a multicultural society, and must accept these totalitarian values.”

The report concludes: “Every decade, the Muslim population of Britain almost doubles in size, so there is every reason to believe that without some massive changes in our society, the activities of these gangs will grow and grow.”

Muslim Terrorism: Children Are Dispensable

By Rachel Molschky:

When it comes to Muslim terrorism, children are dispensable, both the enemy children as well as those of the jihadists themselves. Our Western culture promotes compassion, in particular when it comes to children. However, Islam is quite the opposite. There is no worry over whether or not children are among the victims of their crimes.

Even when their own children are killed, they use their deaths as leverage to evoke sympathy from the Western world. A prime example would be Palestinian terrorists who use their children as human shields and subsequently take photos of the dead and point the finger at Israel. Then they continue the propaganda game when the same photos resurface from one war to the next, and many times the original photos themselves were fabricated.

This is a photo of an injured Israeli baby after a rocket attack from Hamas. Arab propaganda has changed it to a Palestinian baby. Source: http://fakewarclaims.com/category/middle-east/page/2/

Several photos from the Syrian War have been regurgitated as Palestinian anti-Israel propaganda when it was Muslims who killed the children in Syria and had nothing to do with Israel. Photos of injured Israeli children, the victims of Palestinian terrorism, are also used with the claims that they are children in Gaza.

There are many examples of this at fakewarclaims.com, and I recommend visiting the site if you can stomach the gore. Some of the photos are extremely disturbing.

All this propaganda is for the West. How do Muslims really treat children? Let’s take a look at some recent news stories: (H/t The Religion of Peace)

58 Students Shot or Burned to Hacked to Death… Dozens Killed in Attack on Nigerian School: “Islamic militants set fire to a locked dormitory at a school in northern Nigeria, then shot and slit the throats of students who tried to escape through windows during a pre-dawn attack Tuesday. At least 58 students were killed, including many who were burned alive. “They ‘slaughtered them like sheep’ with machetes, and gunned down those who ran away, said one teacher, Adamu Garba…”
90 Killed in 2 Attacks in Northern Nigeria(including children dancing at a wedding) “Twin car bombs at a bustling city marketplace blasted buildings to rubble and tore apart bodies the same night an attack on a farming village razed every thatched-roof hut. At least 90 people have been killed,   officials and survivors reported Sunday, as Nigeria’s Islamic extremists step up attacks and criticism mounts of the failure of the military and government to suppress the 4-year-old Islamic uprising in the northeast…The victims include children dancing at a wedding celebration and people watching a soccer match at a cinema, survivors told The Associated Press…”
Two Bahrain children wounded while planting bomb: police: “DUBAI: Two children, aged 10 and 11, were wounded while planting a roadside bomb in a Shia-dominated village in Bahrain where a blast killed three policemen this week, police said on Thursday. ‘A group of   terrorists exploited these children by asking them to plant a home-made bomb’ in Daih, state news agency BNA quoted a police official as saying. He said one child was ‘seriously’ wounded when the device exploded. Police photos showed one child’s fingers mangled by the blast and both boys’ faces and bodies peppered with shrapnel…”
16 Christians killed in latest attack in Nigeria (4 children among them):”Armed gunmen believed to be Muslim Fulani herdsmen have attacked a cluster of villages in Plateau state, killing 16 Christians and destroying numerous homes, Christian leaders said… Musa Gunduma Dang of Gwon village said they killed his mother, wife, four children and three other relatives. ‘They shot sporadically and set my house ablaze, killing all members of my family, and the entire village has been destroyed,’ Dang said…”
Afghan child killed, 5 women injured in clinic attack: “Afghanistan- One child and two policemen were killed while five women were wounded Saturday when militants opened fire on women, who line up to receive food at a maternity and women’s clinic in eastern Afghan province of Laghman, sources said…’One seven-year-old child and two Afghan Local Police cops were martyred and five women got gunshot wounds in the incident,’ the statement said…”
Christian Family Murdered in Alexandria (including 6 year-old):”Four members of a Christian family of Syrian origin living in Alexandria, Egypt, were stabbed to death Monday. A man was seen walking out of their apartment holding a black plastic bag. The father of the family, 44, who was employed in one of Sharm el-Sheikh’s hotels, was found stabbed in the stomach, the chest and the shoulder. His 35-year-old wife was stabbed in the neck, and so was the husband’s 43-year-old sister. Their six-year-old daughter was also found murdered…”
Jihadists loaded bomb devices into ambulance carrying pregnant woman from Syria into Turkey (No worries over the woman or her unborn baby):”While Israel is constantly excoriated for supposedly targeting civilians, we see Islamic jihadists in Gaza and now in Syria deliberately staging jihad operations in areas where civilians will almost certainly get hurt by retaliatory action. Loading bomb devices for jihad attacks in Turkey onto an ambulance carrying a pregnant woman shows yet again the egregious jihadist disregard for human life and cynical willingness to use civilians for cover…”
Pakistani man hands over 3 sons to Hafiz Saeed for jihad: “A Pakistani man has handed over his three young sons to Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed for jihad. Abu Haider, a Jamaat-ud-Dawa activist, handed over his three sons to Saeed at a workers’ convention yesterday in Nankana Sahib, about 80 kilometres from Lahore. ‘I hand over my three young sons to you for jihad (holy war). They will be now on your hands in your struggle,’ Haider said…”

Coptic_ChristiansThese are all stories from about a two-week period and are only but a snippet of violence compared to the long history of a Muslim disregard for human life including the lives of children. Boko Haram militants repeatedly storm schools and slaughter as many children as possible. Islamic suicide bombers do not back away if they see children present. In the Sbarro suicide bombing in Jerusalem, among the dead were seven children and a pregnant woman. An 8 year-old boy was killed in the Boston Marathon bombing after one of the bombs was left just feet away from him. His 6 year-old sister survived but lost a leg, (and his mother suffered a brain injury.)

When there are Islamic acts of terrorism, there are dead children, not inadvertently but purposely. In the Fogel Family Massacre, Palestinian terrorists broke into the Jewish family’s home and viciously butchered the parents and three of their children, including a baby.

h/t Jack Ellison – “Just a month away now from the next Boston marathon, site of Islamic jihad last year”

I will keep this short since I just sent out an earlier newsletter today. I feel it is important for Americans to understand that what happened in Boston today is only a surprise to politicians and the liberal media. When I was in Iraq I had the opportunity to interview Al Qaeda, Fedeyeen (Saddam Forces) and other terrorists.  I wanted to know what type of attacks our country would endure in the future from the fighters of Islam.  I was informed on numerous occasions that Islamic fighters would attack the heart of America.  I asked what was the heart of America? We were told the children are the heart of the American people and they will be attacked physically and emotionally.
 
We must all begin educating the American public about the dangers of Islam or attacks like in Boston will continue. They will be on the same scale as the Boston Marathon bombing.  I do not believe they will be on the scale of 9-11.  Islamic leaders have informed me that another major attack like 9-11 would isolate the Muslim community and the U.S. govt. would have to strike back. It would set Islam back 20 plus years in their goals and objectives.  The Islamic leaders prefer attacks such as in Boston.  They know in the end the politicians and liberal media will call it an attack by a couple radicals and it will be forgotten such as the killings at Ft. Hood, Tx.
 
If there are Americans who believe the Islamic leaders and their supporters will not attack a school, children’s bus, or in a shopping mall you are only kidding yourself.
 
Many people will ask what can we do? The only way to eliminate Islam and Sharia as a danger in America is for Americans to be educated that Islam is not a religion, it is a dangerous ideology and if it is not labeled as such by our leaders and media, our children will suffer and we will lose this beautiful country.  This strategy may seem radical, but it is the reality and if you love your children you will start demanding our leaders see Islam not as a religion, but America’s number one National Security threat.

When Democracy and Multi-Culturalism Collide

The Rising Sex Traffic in Forced Islamic Marriage

tearsBy Mark Durie:

Western nations are facing what has been called an “epidemic” of forced marriages of their young Muslim women. While those who compel young Muslim women and girls into marriages could be charged with human trafficking offences and also in some cases placed on the national register of sex offenders, governments also should target for prosecution all those who are involved in the solemnisation of these illegal marriages.

This article first appeared in the March 2014 edition of Quadrant. 


In 2008, the then Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, (here) and Nicholas Phillips, Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales (here), both suggested that the UK could consider, in Lord Phillips’s words, “embracing Sharia law” because “there is no reason why Sharia Law, or any other religious code should not be the basis for mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution”. Williams commented: “it’s not as if we’re bringing in an alien and rival system”.

However, two recent widely reported cases of marriage between Muslim men and under-age girls raise troubling questions about these assumptions. One case in New South Wales where an imam married a twelve-year-old girl to a twenty-six-year-old man with her father’s consent is before the court.

In another case involving a custody battle, however, a judgment has been made that questions the way Western jurisdictions interact with sharia marriage regulations, specifically in relation to the widespread practice of conducting private, unregistered religious marriages. A Sydney Muslim girl aged fourteen was forced by her parents to become the child “bride” of a twenty-one-year-old man. Her mother had told her she would “get to attend theme parks and movies and eat lollies and ice-cream with her new husband”. Instead she endured years of sexual and physical abuse and intimidation before fleeing with her young daughter. Her story only saw the light of day ten years after her wedding when she pursued custody of her daughter through the courts.

This “marriage” was never registered with the state: it would have been impossible to do so because the girl was too young to marry under Australian law. A particularly troubling aspect of her story is that she reported her predicament to her school teacher, who under Australian law was a mandatory reporter of child sex abuse, but it seems no report was made, and no intervention attempted.

In passing judgment in favour of the woman, Judge Harman invited the authorities to take matters further: the “groom” could be presumably be charged by the police with sexual offences against a child and placed on the sex offenders register. He and the girl’s father—who in accordance with Islamic tradition would have been the two parties to the marriage contract—could also be charged with trafficking offences. There would also almost certainly have been an exchange of money—the mahr—handed over by the man to the girl or her father in accordance with Islamic law.

The UN Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children, defines people-trafficking as:

the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force, or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, [or] servitude … The consent of a victim of trafficking in persons to the intended exploitation set forth [above] shall be irrelevant where any of the means set forth [above] have been used.

The forced marriage of a fourteen-year-old girl, as reported in this Australian case, fits the definition of trafficking. The girl was transferred from the custody of parents to that of her “husband” by use of deception, and he then kept her for the purpose of sexual exploitation and servitude, controlling her by violence and threats.

Pru Goward, the New South Wales Minister for Community Services and Women, has reported that there are around a thousand cases a year across Australia of women and girls being trafficked into forced marriages. She stated, “No ethnic group has a monopoly on violence against women, but some groups experience violence against women disproportionately.” Indeed. Some groups also perpetrate violence against women “disproportionately”, and it might be more accurate to speak of “religious groups” rather than “ethnic groups”. While there have been no official statistics reported on the religious affiliation of these victims of trafficking, it seems that a great many of the victims and the perpetrators involving in “marriage” trafficking have been Muslims.

Recent reports of a link between trafficking-for-marriage and Islamic marriages have not been limited to Australia. An investigation by ITV in the UK identified eighteen mosques—around one third of those approached by the reporter—where clerics were willing to conduct a wedding of a fourteen-year-old girl against her will.

Nazir Afal, Crown Prosecutor in the North of England, has reported that there are estimated to be 8000 to 10,000 forced marriages or threats of forced marriages of people against their will in the UK each year. Britain’s Forced Marriage Unit (see here) handled 1485 cases in 2012, 35 per cent of which involved girls aged seventeen or younger, and 13 per cent where the girls were under fifteen. A British government survey found that hundreds of girls aged eleven to thirteen had simply disappeared from school rolls.

Governments have been very slow to tackle the trafficking of women and girls for the purpose of forced marriage. Kaye Quek, in a recent article in the British Journal of Politics and International Relations, argues that multicultural ideals prevalent in UK society have made the authorities reluctant to criminalise this practice: they have preferred instead to treat these liaisons as violations of the women’s choice. Quek challenges the government’s preference for seeking civil remedies to forced marriages, and suggests that this is giving rise to a two-tier system of rights, in which it is acceptable for Muslim women to be sexually assaulted through forced marriage.

The Effect of Muslim Appeasement on Women

By Rachel Molschky and Y.K. Cherson:

Though Islam is the self-proclaimed religion of peace, the Muslim community has done little to promote that assertion through their treatment of women. With a clear record of domestic abuse and localized proclamations targeting women in particular, these existing issues in their native lands are being brought with the immigrants to their newly adopted Western homes. As these immigrants remain tied to their countries of origin and their religion and cultures, many continue to support their native lands more passionately than the nations which accepted them as residents.

Keeping that in mind, the Muslim woman’s station in life is under constant attack, whether she lives in Africa or Europe or anywhere else. In order to understand the impact of Muslim immigrants on Western society, it is important to understand how certain aspects of their culture greatly differ from our own.

In May 2012, Islamic cleric Maulana Abdul Haleem preached to his jama’ah, or congregation, in a Kamila, Pakistani mosque, that women who choose a secular education are so disobedient, that murdering them in so-called honor killings is not only applicable but condoned.  If it is not Islamic, it is not acceptable and to such a degree, that he threatened to marry off the female employees of secular non-governmental organizations, or NGOs, who come into small towns to help. They are defenders of women’s human rights, and they work for the welfare of other women in the categories of education, health and overall well-being.

Rape victim receiving 100 lashes for her “crime.”

Rape victim receiving 100 lashes for her “crime.”

And why should a secular education be forbidden?  According to Haleem, it is because such an education would lead to a job which encourages the mixing of women and men who are neither their husbands nor their relatives. It is his view that this goes against Islamic Shariah, and thus, in following Shariah law, it would be acceptable for an honor killing in such circumstances, and no witnesses are required. The vigilante attacker would be granted carte blanche.

These decrees the cleric made are fatwas, or legal pronouncements, in Islam. They are sometimes considered binding and other times are nonbinding depending on whether or not the person who issued the fatwa is authorized to do so and also depending on what denomination of Islam interprets it. The fatwas are issued on the local level.

In technical terms they are considered formal juristic rulings and can only be made by scholars. However, the word, fatwa, seems to have expanded as many, authorized or not, have been making them. And whenever someone of religious authority makes such a decree, there will always be people who take it very seriously. Whether or not these fatwas are enforceable or hold any weight is debatable and varies on a case by case basis. However, the fact that these sometimes renegade statements are more and more prevalent in Muslim society is disturbing upon analysis of what some of them entail.

Acid_attack-300x199For example, another recent fatwa was made in May 2012 as well, again in Pakistan, stating that cell phone use by women is so forbidden that any woman caught using one will have acid thrown in her face as a punishment. Though unrelated to this decree about cell phones, there are around 150 female victims of acid attacks each year in Pakistan, often as a result of domestic violence. This is the topic of a 2012 documentary entitled, Saving Face. Unfortunately, some of the victims featured in the film are now afraid of a backlash in their country for having taken part in it. They are fearful of future repeat attacks. And so acid attacks in the Muslim community, not only in Pakistan but in other countries as well such as Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iran, and even in the Muslim-populated areas of India, are on the rise, disfiguring many women.

But these things do not only occur in Muslim countries like Pakistan. The West is not immune. In 2008, after many years of existence, Shariah courts in the UK were legitimized in several cities.These courts’ decisions are made legally binding due to the 1996 Arbitration Act, and are then supported by the county courts and even the High Court. While some of the cases arbitrated in this way are minor, others include divorce and domestic violence. If these domestic violence cases are being handled within the Muslim community, the female victims’ chances for a fair hearing are greatly minimized and probably even nonexistent.

The Rushdie Fatwa 25 Years Later

by Daniel Pipes
Feb 14, 2014
Cross-posted from National Review Online, The Corner

Twenty-five years ago today, Ayatollah Khomeini brought his edict down on Salman Rushdie. Iran’s revolutionary leader objected to the author’s magical-realist novel The Satanic Verses because of its insults to the Muslim prophet Muhammad and responded by calling for the execution of Rushdie and “all those involved in the publication who were aware of its contents.”

Salman Rushdie in 1989.

That Rushdie was born in India, lived in Britain, and had no significant connections to Iran made this an unprecedented act of aggression, one that resounded widely at the time and has subsequently had an enduring impact. Indeed, one could argue that the era of “creeping Shari’a” or “stealth jihad” or “lawful Islamism” began on February 14, 1989, with the issuance of that short edict.

If Rushdie, 66, is alive and well (if not exactly flourishing; his writings deteriorated after The Satanic Verses), many others lost their lives in the disturbances revolving around his book. Worse, the long-term impact of the edict has been to constrain the ability of Westerners freely to discuss Islam and topics related to it, what has come to be known as the Rushdie Rules. Long observation of this topic (including a book written in 1989), leads me to conclude that two processes are underway:

First, that the right of Westerners to discuss, criticize, and even ridicule Islam and Muslims has eroded over the years.

Second, that free speech is a minor part of the problem; at stake is something much deeper – indeed, a defining question of our time: will Westerners maintain their own historic civilization in the face of assault by Islamists, or will they cede to Islamic culture and law and submit to a form of second-class citizenship?

Most analyses of the Rushdie Rules focus exclusively on the growth of Islamism. But two other factors are even more important: Multiculturalism as practiced undercuts the will to sustain Western civilization against Islamist depredations while the Left’s making common political cause with Islamists gives the latter an entrée. In other words, the core of the problem lies not in Islam but in the West. (February 14, 2014)

The Pentagon’s Bow to Islamic Extremism

by :

“Caving to pressure from Muslim groups, the Pentagon has relaxed uniform rules to allow Islamic beards, turbans and hijabs. It’s a major win for political correctness and a big loss for military unit cohesion,” said a recent report.

This new relaxation of rules for Muslims comes at a time when the FBI is tracking more than 100 suspected jihadi-infiltrators of the U.S. military.  Just last month, Craig Benedict Baxam, a former Army soldier and convert to Islam, was sentenced to seven years in prison due to his al-Qaeda/jihadi activities.   Also last month, Mozaffar Khazaee, an Iranian-American working for the Defense Department, was arrested for sending secret documents to America’s enemy, Iran.

According to a Pentagon spokesperson, the new religious accommodations—to allow Islamic beards, turbans, and hijabs—which took effect very recently, would “reduce both the instances and perception of discrimination among those whose religious expressions are less familiar to the command.”

The report concludes that, “Making special accommodations for Islam will only attract more Muslims into the military at a time when two recent terror cases highlight the ongoing danger of Muslims in uniform.”

But it’s worse than that; for not only will it attract “more Muslims,” it will attract precisely the wrong kinds of Muslims, AKA, “Islamists,” “radicals,” etc.

This is easily demonstrated by connecting the dots and understanding that Muslims who adhere to visible, non-problematic aspects of Islam—growing beards and donning hijabs—often indicate their adherence to non-visible, problematic aspects of Islam.

Consider it this way: Why do some Muslim men wear the prescribed beard and why do some Muslim women wear the prescribed hijab? Most Muslims would say they do so because Islam’s prophet Muhammad commanded them to (whether via the Koran or Hadith).

Regarding the Muslim beard, Muhammad wanted his followers to look different from “infidels,” namely Christians and Jews, so he ordered his followers to “trim closely the moustache and grow the beard.” Accordingly, all Sunni schools of law maintain that it is forbidden—a “major sin”—for men to shave their beards (unless, of course, it is part of a stratagem against the infidel, in which case it is permissible).

The question begs itself: If such Muslims meticulously follow the minor, “outer” things of Islam simply because their prophet made some utterances concerning them in the Hadith, logically speaking, does that not indicate that they also follow, or at the very least accept as legitimate, the major, “inner” themes Muhammad constantly emphasized in both the Koran and Hadith—such as enmity for and deceit of the infidel, and, when capable, perpetual jihad?

Even in the Islamic world this connection between visible indicators of Islamic piety and jihadi tendencies are well known.  Back in 2011, when Islamists were dominating Egypt’s politics, secularist talk show host Amr Adib of Cairo Today mocked the then calls for a “million man beard” march with his trademark sarcasm: “This is a great endeavor! After all, a man with a beard can never be a thug, can never rape a woman in the street, can never set a church on fire, can never fight and quarrel, can never steal, and can never be dishonest!”

His sarcasm was not missed on his Egyptian viewership which knew quite well that it is precisely those Muslims who most closely follow the minutia of Muhammad—for example, by growing a beard—that are most prone to violence, deceit, and anti-infidel sentiments, all of which were also advocated by Islam’s prophet.

Speaking more seriously, Adib had added that this issue is not about growing a beard, but rather, “once you grow your beard, you give proof of your commitment and fealty to everything in Islam.”

Muslim Rape Culture

islamrby :

No one knows the real name of the Port Hills Groper, the Muslim refugee who stalked and attacked over a dozen women jogging in Port Hills, even though he was arrested, tried and sentenced. Instead the New Zealand court gave him “permanent name suppression” to protect his status in his Muslim community.

Judge Jane Farish, who had told a Maori rapist who had lured an Australian tourist into a dark street and beat her while trying to tear off her clothing “If I had my way I would release you today,” let the groper off with community service because his actions were caused by “cultural ambiguities.”

The Muslim groper had blamed his serial assaults on “a misunderstanding of cultural differences” claiming that he had just been trying to be friendly. In his Middle Eastern Muslim culture, friendliness apparently consisted of forcibly groping female joggers while telling them “Happy New Year.”

In neighboring Australia, Muslim cultural misunderstandings have become a big problem for women.

Esmatullah Sharifi, an Afghan refugee, offered an Australian woman a ride home and then put his right hand around her neck and his left hand over her mouth and raped her. Sharifi’s lawyers claimed that due to cultural differences he was confused about the nature of consent.

This wasn’t Sharifi’s first misunderstanding of the difference between rape and sex. He had already been sentenced to 7 years in jail for raping an Australian teenager on Christmas Day in 2008.

The sentencing judge rejected Sharifi’s excuse, but a court of appeals judge found that claiming cultural differences was a valid basis for an appeal.

This wasn’t the first case of Muslim cultural misunderstanding assault in Australia.

Last year, an Egyptian Muslim cleric was arrested for groping women on a beach. The spokesman for the Dee Why Mosque said that by groping a grandmother pushing a stroller and an underage girl, Ahmed Alkahly had been “showing love and compassion but had misunderstood the cultural differences between Australia and Egypt.”

In Muslim Egypt, 99.3% of women and girls have been sexually harassed. What is ordinary behavior in Egyptian Muslim culture is a criminal act in Australia where women are considered to be human beings.

****************

That is the cultural difference between the Muslim world and the Western world.

There are no “free women” in Islam. There are women who belong to one man and there are women who belong to all men. There are wives and daughters or women who can be enslaved by any man.

Women can be covered meat or uncovered meat, but they cannot be considered people. When they are raped, the deciding question is whether they were at home or outside, whether they were covered meat or uncovered meat, whether they were acting like good Pakistani girls or bad Western women.

The Taliban aren’t just in Afghanistan and Pakistan anymore, they are everywhere in the West that Pakistani, Afghani and other Muslim migrants settle. Expecting them to respect the rights of Western women is asking them to turn their backs on their culture and religion and that is as likely to happen in Muslim settlements in the UK, France and Australia… as it is in Afghanistan.

The Taliban and their views on women have come to the West. And Western judges are choosing to respect Muslim rape culture over the rights of women.

Muslim ‘Enrichment’ in Britain: One Week Snapshot

By Paul Wilkinson:

The celebrants of multiculturalism constantly remind us of never-ending invigorating cultural enrichment, so just for fun, I thought I would make a note of some stories involving Islam or Muslims in Britain over a one week period.

The week I happened to choose was between Thursday 23rd January and Wednesday 29th January 2014. There was nothing significant about those dates, and it was selected entirely at random.

To set the scene, just before the week in question commenced, the Home Office announced that high-risk terrorists will be released from prison and will not be monitored properly, to protect their human rights; a Muslima redefined British legal history as she stood trial in a full face veil; there were reports of a serial flasher (urinating) in the Blackburn/Accrington area; an Islamic teacher guilty of groping pupils; and reports of murders and rapes going unreported in no-go zones for police as minority communities (AKA ‘Muslim’) launch their own justice systems.

So what could happen in the week I chose? Having followed the exhilarating enrichment that Muslims bring to the rich tapestry of modern Britain for a few years now, I was certainly not counting anything either in or out, so here goes! It really was like having a blank canvas!

Thursday 23rd January

Friday 24th January

  • DittaSentencing of Lee Rigby’s killers, Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, was expected today but was delayed due to an appeal over whether whole life sentences can be given.
  • Blackburn: ‘You’ve messed with the wrong Muslims!’ CCTV images show three women trying to kidnap and rob their sister’s lesbian lover during a row over arranged marriage. Seamless integration is awarded with a combined 30 years in prison for the six siblings (Pictured here).

Saturday 25th January

  • (Video) London: Islamists demonstrate in support of Al-Qaeda in Syria, against FSA. No sign of ‘anti-fascist’ protestors either. Of course that would be ‘Islamophobic’ of them!
  • ‘Brits’ returning to the UK from Syria will be ‘stopped at the border and face arrest’, with 16 arrests made so far this month.

Sunday 26th January

  • Mo_bday_parade-300x200Sunday is no longer a day of rest in today’s vibrant Britain as residents of Nelson discovered when an intimidating group of 5,000 Muslims stormed through the town to celebrate Prophet Muhammad’s birthday. Pictured here is another show of force in Blackburn. I cannot see any females in the photo. Who knows, maybe the women are at the back?

Monday 27th January

  • Rochdale Councillor and Council Finance Chief, Farooq Ahmed, quizzed by police over ‘homophobic’ insult made at a fellow councillor in public.
  • News of child exploitation/grooming gang in Newcastle-upon-Tyne emerges today and by Wednesday a total of 25 arrests had been made. No news on the identity of the perpetrators at the time of writing, but this type of crime is dominated by Muslim men, and the focus of the investigation is in the west end of Newcastle, which is home to a large Muslim population.

Breivik and the Wicked Leftist Media

breivikmedia (1)Gates of Vienna, by Paul Weston:

A world controlled by the wicked and immoral Left is a very unpleasant place in which to live. At the furthest extremity of Left-wingery we have genocide, totalitarianism, gulags and evil. At the softer end of Left-wingery we have propaganda, lies, MSNBC, smears, the BBC, hatred of tradition and decency, and the concomitant incremental demise of the Western democracy historically defended by millions of our young men who now lie in graves both marked and unmarked across the Western world.

Unfortunately for the decent, intelligent and moral people today, the Left have largely carried out their Long March and now control the institutions which form the thoughts and opinions of the vast majority of Western peoples. He who controls the media and the educational establishment controls the past, the present, and the future, just as Hitler, Stalin and their present-day Socialist comrades-in-arms intended.

To really see what this means in 2014, we need look no further than the case of Anders Behring Breivik, the counter-jihad movement, and the truly obscene behaviour of the Leftist media — particularly so in Scandinavian countries.

In 2011 Breivik carried out his murderous spree, to the shock and horror of all decent people everywhere. The Leftist media, however — which had already made up its mind about certain individuals within the counter-jihad movement — sought to use this act of evil purely to mount an assault upon high-profile individuals whose “crime” was to peacefully and accurately draw attention to the dangers involved in allowing a barbaric ideology by the name of Islam to flourish both demographically and “culturally” within the cohesive, peaceful and Christian West.

I am not going to go into forensic detail about the actions of the Leftist media, which have been covered in depth already by Robert Spencer, Baron Bodissey at Gates of Vienna, and Fjordman, all of whom were viciously attacked by Left-wing journalists who were outraged (rightly so) by the actions of Breivik, but who had all remained smugly mute for years over the numerically far higher number of murders carried out in the name of Islam or Socialism.

Just to give a couple of typical examples, the Guardian newspaper, chock-full of wicked Leftists, remarked that America had been given the bloody nose she so manifestly deserved on 9/11, whilst the BBC bent over backwards to excuse Islam whilst reducing the then U.S. Ambassador to tears in front of a baying mob of specifically imported Muslims and Leftists within a BBC studio.

But why such overt double standards over two acts of similar atrocity? Why the total failure to hold up the Koran and the hadith for 9/11? And why the massive, concerted and hysterical smear campaign against Bodissey, Spencer and Fjordman?

The answer of course is because the Left wish to use Islam as a pawn in the breakdown of Western Nation States, Christianity, and free enterprise, a.k.a. capitalism. An orderly, affluent, peaceful, civilised country contains very few potential voters for the far Left, so even if Islam did not exist, the Left would have to invent it — and then eagerly import it. There can be no better ideological ally if the intention is to manufacture social unrest and potential civil war, which justifies ever-increasing authoritarianism prior to the eventual full-blown Leftist totalitarianism necessary to keep a lid on things.

Hence the smearing of the counter-jihad, and the politically deceitful defence of the so called religion of peace. But in a rational and sane world (ie: a non-Leftist world) there is one overwhelming and striking difference between the gentle, polite, articulate and well informed output of the counter-jihad movement, and the murderous actions of both Breivik and similarly violent Muslim supremacists, which is starkly simple — Bodissey, Spencer and Fjordman have never once called for violence to be inflicted upon Muslims or Leftists, but Muslims and Leftists routinely call for (and practice) violence upon those they disagree with.

Which, over a long and meandering route, brings me to the point of this article, which is the near total refusal of the MSM to publicise the recent Breivik letter to the MSM where he essentially admits he considers the counter-jihad movement to be comprised of a bunch of panty-waisted individuals with no appetite for killing, no admiration for Nazism, no desire for violence and perhaps even worse, a sympathy for Israel. Ho ho ho, he says, I have attempted to discredit the entire movement which I hate with a passion for its passive, intellectual, peaceful approach to the Islamic problem, and I have been greatly assisted by the cretinous Leftist media…

Breivik is positively gloating over the ease with which he pulled the wool over the Leftist media’s eyes, but he should not be so hubristic, because the anti-Western Leftist media actively wanted to be deliberately blinded to truth, reason, decency and fact. And what then, is the outcome of this?

Not good is the answer. Not good for anyone. Mild-mannered, scholarly and peaceful people have been falsely smeared and stigmatised, whilst violent Islam has been falsely defended. And all the while, the anger amongst the peoples of the West continues to build to an eventual future extent where the Bodisseys, Spencers and Fjordmans of this world — who provide an accurate, impartial and peaceful analysis of our problems — will be replaced by people with an altogether different outlook, as we are already beginning to see in the rise of several real fascist movements in Europe.

So please allow me to offer my most sincere congratulations to the Leftist media. You have attacked the peaceful, native defenders of Western civilisation and labelled them as evil, whilst defending the foreign, violent attackers of Western civilisation, who you disingenuously promote as harmless, virtuous and good.

What a thoroughly evil lot you are. No journalistic integrity; no personal morality and no common, basic decency amongst any of you. Will we see a single one of you publish Breivik’s admission? Of course not, and of course not for a pretty simple reason — you are too immersed in your wicked Leftist activism to behave in a way any normal person outside the all-smothering political Leftist world would recognise as brave, responsible, impartial, good or decent. You are more than a disgrace to your profession; you are a treacherous disgrace to humanity.

Are Muslim Immigrants Good for Your Country?

German_MuslimsBy Y.K. Cherson:

Some people have a deep animosity toward immigrants, but I am not one of them. I do not like nor dislike immigrants; for me they are just strangers who live in my country. And my attitude toward them is conditioned by just one simple criteria: if they make my life and my country better- or worse. On the other hand, immigrants who come to my country do not come out of some deep love for the nation or culture. They come for money and for a better life for themselves and their families. So we are even, and nobody owes anything to anyone else- which is, in most cases, the best pattern of any relationship.

Money and a better life are quite an incentive. Those who think immigrants, especially immigrants from Muslim countries, come because they admire Western democracy should take a look at the situation in Germany.

Data taken from: Citizen Times: “Turks in Germany 2012″:

According to the study of the Interior Ministry, in 2009, Germany was home to around 4.3 million Muslims, which equates to a population share of 5.2%. Of them, the largest group consists of just under 2.7 million people of Turkish descent. A recent poll by Information GmbH has investigated what these Turkish immigrants think about Germany and Germans.

Attitudes Toward Germany

Regarding the respondents’ attitudes toward Germany and Germans, at least in terms of the stated desire for integration, 95% of the Turks in Germany find it important to preserve their Turkish culture in Germany, and 87% (2010: 83%) think that Germans ought to be more considerate of the particular circumstances of the Turks. For crying out loud, why in the world should 80 million Germans who created Germany be “more considerate of the particular circumstances” of some 2.7 million Turks?

The “Good” Muslim Immigrants

Tsarnaev_brosBy Rachel Molschky:

The cliché that there is only a “small fringe” of Islamic “extremists” is really getting old. Blame it on a supposed naiveté of the liberal media and politicians like Secretary of State John Kerry, who recently told Catholic Church officials that poverty,“in many cases is the root cause of terrorism or even the root cause of the disenfranchisement of millions of people on this planet.” Poverty, as Michelle Malkin points out in her article, “John Kerry, Jihad Coddler,” has nothing to do with terrorism. Many terrorists are at least middle class while others are affluent and highly educated. Can liberals really be so naive, or is something else going on?Why can’t anyone in the mainstream media be honest and simply explain that the Islamic doctrine itself is to blame? If the answer is political correctness, or fear, why is it that our ancestors did not have this fear and had no trouble at all telling the truth about the violent nature of Islam? (See my article “Islam Hasn’t Changed: We Have” for quotes from dignitaries from the past and present.)

We have various articles with examples of violent Quranic verses calling for the rape, subjugation and murder of non-Muslims and apostates, but to get an overview, The Religion of Peace website has many summaries like “Ten Obvious Reasons Why Islam is NOT a Religion of Peace” and categories like Women’s Rights, Human Rights, Islamic Terror, etc. for anyone in the dark about the violent teachings of a political system ironically named the “religion of peace.” Instead of condemning websites like these as “hate speech”, it would be highly beneficial for these politicians and journalists to actually read them. They might learn something.

Y.K. Cherson’s article, “The Goal of Muslim Immigration According to Muhammad’s Teachings,” is another eye-opener, as well as “Islam: Against All Mankind.” If anyone is still hanging onto the idea that Islam is just another religion, believing that everyone should have the right to freedom of religion, it would serve them well to read the truth instead of buying the politically correct sound bites brainwashing our society today.

“Oh, but it’s not right to stereotype, and there are many good people everywhere.” Well, this is true, but it brings me to something that recently happened in November 2013, when a terrible tragedy occurred in Afghanistan. Trusted Afghan policemen posed for pictures with British soldiers, who were there to help, before gunning them down in cold blood. The British soldiers were there to train them, so after getting trained, the Afghans turned the guns around on their trainers. The very same thing kept happening to American soldiers. There was a program in place to train police officers in Afghanistan, but the US was forced to temporarily shut down that program in 2012, after too many insurgent attacks left American and other soldiers dead. In fact, there were 34 insider attacks throughout that year, which killed a total of 45 international troops.

One serious problem in our society today is the unrealistic belief among many Westerners that Muslims behave one way in their own countries but are different once they come over here. That could possibly be true if only Islam were not so central to these people’s lives and if assimilation were a part of Muslim immigration. It is not. Muslim imams actually preach that they are not to assimilate and should live in their own communities, following their own laws in order to not be “corrupted” by the infidel natives who have been compared to cattle, pigs, apes, and so on. They in turn create their own little world, their own Somalia, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Iraq, etc., in our countries, bringing the same culture they “supposedly” wanted to escape with them. And they do not abandon their “religion” which calls for our demise.

The West has been bringing over many refugees from these war-torn nations, which are often pitting Muslim against Muslim, Sunni against Shia, or are tribal conflicts, rather than any liberal delusion that it is a fight for a Western-style democracy. Now these refugees arrive with a mentality no different than what it was back home.

Europe: Islamic Terror Starts Here

Over 1000 European jihadists have joined the fight in Syria. Many will return home to plan terror attacks

Over 1000 European jihadists have joined the fight in Syria. Many will return home to plan terror attacks

European-based Islamists raise or launder money, supply false documents and weapons and recruit new operatives for a global network that spans from the United States to the Far East.

By Y.K. Cherson:

It’s no secret that most terrorist attacks perpetrated by those we call “Islamic terrorists” occurred not in Europe or the USA- but in Iraq, Pakistan, Kenya, Nigeria and other non-Western countries. The murders of Lee Rigby or the 52 people killed in London in 2005 are, of course, heinous crimes. But compared to hundreds that die in Iraq daily, a hundred or so European victims of Islamic terrorist attacks in the last 10 years look very moderate. European political leaders, modestly lowering their eyes, hint that this is the result of their wise policy and of the highest efficiency of the police- that is directed and guided by them. The true reason, however, is different. Islamic terrorist leaders simply spare Europe. It is not dangerous for them. Moreover, Europe today is a true paradise for Islamic terrorist leaders, who in total comfort and safety are able to plan, organize and finance terrorist attacks all over the world from the European capital cities.

Before the 70s there was not any “Islamic terrorism.” In all those countries we today call “Islamic,” the governments, understanding perfectly well the danger, were mercilessly crushing all these “Muslim brotherhoods” and any other similar tactics. Muslim groups were illegal, and the ruling governments in Egypt, Turkey, Syria, and Saudi Arabia sent their members to jail without a second thought. Incidentally, the jails in these countries are not like in Norway, Sweden or Great Britain where they more closely resemble 4-star hotels than prisons.

Furthermore, Europe, due to the restrictive immigration policies and moderately strict laws, was closed to them. Islamic terrorism had no future and no perspectives. All that changed in the 70s when Europe became catastrophically humanistic and liberal- and opened its doors to a mass immigration from Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The leaders of the Islamic terrorist organizations very soon discovered that to organize terrorist attacks and to launder money from drug and human trafficking is much safer from Amsterdam, London and Paris than from Cairo, Damascus and Riyadh: lawyers, human rights activists, lax laws…

And the efficiency is much higher.

The main rehaznos for the growth of Islamic terrorism in the world and the increase in its efficiency are:

• lax immigration policies that have allowed known Islamic radicals to settle and remain in Europe,

• the radicalization of significant segments of the continent’s burgeoning Muslim population, and

• the European law enforcement agencies’ inability to effectively dismantle terrorist networks, due to poor attention to the problem and/or the lack of proper legal tools.

Given these premises, it should come as no surprise that almost every single attack carried out or attempted by different Islamic groups throughout the world has some link to Europe, even prior to 9/11.
