Responding to the Islamisation of the West

coexist Islam

Throughout much of the West major cities have large concrete blocks placed around high-traffic pedestrian areas. So what is that all about? Works of modern art? Not quite – they are security bollards. Security from what? Well, sadly, from basically one thing: jihadists who wish to mow down innocents in the name of their political ideology.

So the West is responding to this crisis – not by dealing with the root causes – but by running with band aid solutions. Instead of acknowledging that we have an Islam problem, as Tony Abbott recently pointed out, and taking appropriate steps to deal with this, we try rather useless harm minimisation approaches.

And as some of you may have noticed, it just got even worse in Sydney, with large trucks brought in to busy shopping areas. You can see the accompanying pic for yourself. One news item put it this way:

Sydney’s most popular shopping destination featured some conspicuous new additions on Tuesday morning, as crowds queueing for a Boxing Day bargain took note of a number of large semi-trailers parked around Pitt Street Mall and the Queen Victoria Building.
Security upgrades were obvious in the city, with bollards and semi-trailer trucks used as temporary barricades. The semi-trailers were particularly jarring in Sydney’s prime shopping district, parked at odd angles to stop traffic from getting through.

All this is one way to deal with the rise of terrorism: simply turn your cities into fortresses. I guess it is easier than dealing with the core problems here, which happens to be a religion which for 1400 years has used terror and bloodshed to spread its tentacles over the globe.

Instead of taking much greater care in who we let in to our countries, and being honest and up front about genuine security risks, we prefer to be PC, as we take more and more freedoms away from the general populace. An eventual police state may make us somewhat “safer,” but at what price?

Things are certainly just as bad in Europe, if not worse. One recent piece speaks about “Europe: The Islamization of Christmas”. It offers a long list of changes taking place there because of the Islamic threat. For example:

This year’s Christmas season has been marked by Islam-related controversies in nearly every European country. Most of the conflicts have been generated by Europe’s multicultural political and religious elites, who are bending over backwards to secularize Christmas, ostensibly to ensure that Muslims will not be offended by the Christian festival.

Many traditional Christmas markets have been renamed — Amsterdam Winter Parade, Brussels Winter Pleasures, Kreuzberger Wintermarkt, London Winterville, Munich Winter Festival — to project a multicultural veneer of secular tolerance.

Christmas is basically disappearing all over Europe. Let me highlight some of the more shocking developments that this article documents:

Gun control in Europe is almost total. It hasn’t stopped mass shooting attacks like Las Vegas

Fox News

via Free Republic

Within hours of the horrible attack in Las Vegas, before we knew most of the relevant facts about the tragedy, gun control advocates were calling for more gun control. Here is something I would like those advocates to consider: Europe, which has all the gun controls that are being pushed in the aftermath of the Las Vegas carnage, has actually suffered more bloodshed from these types of attacks than the U.S.

You heard that right: Countries such as France may have made all semi-automatic guns illegal, but that hasn’t stopped killers from getting fully automatic machine guns to use in mass shooting attacks. All four of the 2015 mass public shooting in France involved machine guns, including the 130 people killed in November of that year in multiple attacks including one at a concert venue.

In the 1970s, 80s and 90s, Europe saw machine gun attacks in airports and nightclubs by groups such as Black September and the Red Army Faction. In fact, machine guns are commonly used in mass shootings in the rest of the world.

This has not been the case here in the U.S. In fact, Sunday’s attack on a country music festival in Las Vegas – that left at least 58 people dead and more than 500 wounded – may be the first mass public shooting in the U.S. involving a machine gun, if it turns out the killer did use such a weapon. According to a Wall Street Journal report, the gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, is believed to have used at least one fully automatic weapon – weapons that are heavily restricted under U.S. federal law.

It is an attack that is likely to rank 14th in the most deadly mass public shooting in the world since 1970. . . .

Obama’s JV team strikes again

 

Flopping Aces

Obama’s favorite JV team has struck again.

Cowering under desks and running for their lives, this is the terrifying moment passengers were caught up in a suicide bomb attack at Brussels Airport this morning in a series of blasts that have killed at least 34 people across the city.

Witnesses described apocalyptic scenes with blood and ‘dismembered bodies everywhere’ after two blasts rocked the terminal at 8am (7am GMT) in a suspected suicide bombing, killing at least 14 people and injuring 35 others.

Then 79 minutes later at 9.19am, at least 20 people were killed and 55 injured, some critically, when a blast hit a Metro station just 400 metres from the EU headquarters in the city centre.

At the airport, there were reports of a firefight between police and the attackers who shouted in Arabic moments before detonating their bombs. A Kalashnikov was later recovered from the scene.

The blasts, which detonated near the American Airlines and Brussels airlines check-in desks, sent shockwaves through the terminal building, shattering windows and knocking roof tiles off the ceiling as terrified passengers ran for their lives.

The explosions have left countries worldwide reeling, with security placed on high alert, flights cancelled, Eurostar services suspended and France’s border with Belgium shut down.

Two suspects were arrested a mile from the Maelbeek metro station at around 11am as hundreds of troops and police flooded the streets of Brussels in the hunt for members of the terror cell.

Soldiers have been also been deployed at the airport and other key locations across Brussels as Belgium raised security to its maximum level.

The bombings come just a day after the Belgium Interior Minister warned of possible revenge attacks after the arrest of Paris massacre suspect Salah Abdeslam in the city on Friday.

Barack Obama is importing war into America

screen-shot-2015-07-18-at-4-50-38-pm

Renew America

Out of the many, many terrible policy decisions that have been made by the Obama misadministration, perhaps the worst is the effort being made to “resettle” thousands of Syrian “refugees” into this country. This move has been widely opposed by the American people, and even provoked a rare show of cartilage (can’t call it genuine backbone) in most of the elected Republican state governors. Nobody with any sense wants these “refugees” here because of the obvious security threat that they represent.

In a ludicrous display of hollow-chest thumping, Obama attempted to “shame” his opponents into accepting them by casting these “refugees” as just a bunch of harmless little three-year old orphans and widows. I doubt that anyone who wasn’t already in the tank for him believed it, considering all the empirical evidence we’ve seen so far about Muslim “refugees” from the Middle East. Indeed, those who know anything at all know that what Obama is really doing is importing a future war into our country – one that will eventually be fought right here on our own soil.

Don’t believe me? Then look to the European experience. Europe – much of whose leadership is as ridiculously obtuse as our own – is basically under foreign occupation as I write this. Because of politicians who are so open-minded that their brains have fallen out, large chunks of Europe threw open the gates to over a million Muslim “migrants,” and are now reaping the consequences of their stupidity.

German Priest Strips Church of Christian Symbols, Turns It Over to Invading Islamic Hordes

Moonbattery

Christendom fought off Islam for 14 centuries. Much of the Christian world was lost to savagery, including the great civilizations that formerly thrived in the Middle East, particularly in Egypt and Syria, as well as a large part of the Greek world. But those victories for Muslims did not come cheaply. Many died valiantly defending civilization. Finally Islam was turned back by Charles Martel in France and at the Gates of Vienna. Until we succumbed to moonbattery:

A German evangelical priest has offered his parish church up to become migrant housing, but will be stripping out most of the fittings to ensure their comfort – including all symbols of Christianity.

Father Joachim Deterding, parish priest of the evangelical Königshardt-Schmachtendorf church in Oberhausen, western Germany offered his church to the city authorities this week, a suggestion they accepted “gladly”, reports der Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung. …

As well as clearing out pews, the altar, and the pulpit to make space for beds and kitchens, the church is also clearing out Christian symbols. This move has been calculated to make the migrants feel more welcome in their new home, reports The Express.

It isn’t just Germany…

Former churches, monasteries, and vicarages were turned over by Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, the Archbishop of Vienna to predominantly Muslim economic migrants for their comfort. The Cardinal, who has been tipped to be the next pope, told other Catholic congregations in Austria that he expected them to do the same with their buildings.

Elsewhere in Eurabia,

Breitbart London reported in October on the world’s first openly lesbian bishop, Eva Brunne of Stockholm when she ordered a church in the dockyards of her city to remove crosses, make space for prayer mats, and mark the direction to Mecca.

Fortunately Brunne has no authority over that particular church.

By now the Muslim invaders must be experiencing an uneasy feeling that it couldn’t possibly be this easy. Maybe it won’t be. Europeans have shown a lot of character over the past two millennia. There is still time for it to reassert itself — although that time is running out.

Will Western Civilization Survive the European Project?

Secure Freedom Minute fsm logo

SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE

The dream of a unified Europe is turning into a nightmare for citizens of countries whose sovereignty has been surrendered to unaccountable bureaucrats in Brussels and to leaders like Germany’s Angela Merkel who have exercised outsized influence on the European Union’s policies.

Faced with cascading economic, sociological and security calamities brought on by the arrival of many thousands of mostly Muslim migrants, publics in nation after nation are beginning to push back.

Particularly in “New Europe,” anger at Merkel’s open invitation to Syrian and other “refugees” is producing border closures, dislocations and political upheavals. In Poland, for example, a conservative party just received an electoral mandate to reject EU-dictated quotas for migrants and to reassert national sovereignty.

America should learn from, encourage and emulate those seeking to preserve Western civilization from the invasion now underway in Europe.

FBI might shutdown the Internet on March 8

 

RT

Millions of computer users across the world could be blocked off from the Internet as early as March 8 if the FBI follows through with plans to yank a series of servers originally installed to combat corruption.

Last year, authorities in Estonia apprehended six men believed responsible for creating a malicious computer script called the DNSChanger Trojan. Once set loose on the Web, the worm corrupted computers in upwards of 100 countries, including an estimated 500,000 in America alone. The US Federal Bureau of Investigation later stepped up by replacing the rogue Trojan with servers of their own in an attempt to remediate the damage, but the fix was only temporary. Now the FBI is expected to end use of those replacement servers as early as next month and, at that point, the Internet for millions could essentially be over.

Fed aid in financial crisis went beyond U.S. banks to industry, foreign firms

Washington Post

The financial crisis stretched even farther across the economy than many had realized, as new disclosures show the Federal Reserve rushed trillions of dollars in emergency aid not just to Wall Street but also to motorcycle makers, telecom firms and foreign-owned banks in 2008 and 2009.

The Fed’s efforts to prop up the financial sector reached across a broad spectrum of the economy, benefiting stalwarts of American industry including General Electric and Caterpillar and household-name companies such as Verizon, Harley-Davidson and Toyota. The central bank’s aid programs also supported U.S. subsidiaries of banks based in East Asia, Europe and Canada while rescuing money-market mutual funds held by millions of Americans.
