French City of Lille on Lockdown After Multiple Shootings


The French city of Lille is on lockdown after three people, including a 14-year-old boy, have been shot and injured near the Porte’d’Arras metro station in the southern part of the city.

According to local media, one of the injuries is life-threatening, while the other two are not. Armed police have now sealed the area and are surveilling the city.
Whether the attack is terror related is currently unknown, although local police have claimed it was gang related.
“The attack was in place Jacques Febvrier, next to the Porte d’Arras metro station. Officers remain at the scene,” a police spokesperson said. “Those hurt have been taken to the Saint-Vincent-de-Paul hospital. None of the injuries are life threatening.”
“A car pulled up outside the station and targeted the three youths hurt. It appears this was a settling of scores,” he continued.
The incident comes at a time when Europe is on high alert, after an Islamist attack in London killed four innocent people and injured 50, with two people still in critical condition.
On Thursday, police also arrested a North African man in Antwerp, Belgium, who tried to drive a car into a crowd of people.

Muslims Boo London Police Commander for Calling London Attack Terrorism

This is utterly despicable and disgraceful.
The framing here is the usual "Muslims fear backlash" narrative. But then we go into the London terrorist's mosque and we have a police commander positively pleading and apologizing while the crowd boos him.
Among representatives of different faiths attending Friday prayers at the mosque were David Urquhart, bishop of Birmingham, and Rabbi Margaret Jacobi. Mak Chishty, a commander at the Metropolitan police and the force’s lead on hate crime, was also present.
At an event afterwards, Chishty was heckled when he sought to justify the Met’s labelling the London attacks an act of terrorism. “The definition of terror is where an act is carried out for a political motive … I don’t think it’s the wrong thing to do. I don’t think he [Masood] is just someone who has driven across the bridge and randomly said: ‘Oh, I’ll just crash into people and kill them and then crash the car and try to maim people’,” Chishty said.
He added: “This isn’t about casting a cloud over the local communities. I’ve told you I’m a local boy. I’m a Muslim. I feel violated when Muslims are under attack, when the extremists take Islam to a violent form. It separates it from what I have learnt.”
After a minute’s silence for London’s victims and a sermon that denounced Islamist terrorism, Chishty appealed for information about Masood, who lived in the city in the runup to the attack. Any reports would be treated in strictest confidence and could be made anonymously, he said. “Just imagine if somebody somewhere had told us something that may have made us do something differently. Five people may still have been alive today and we’d have been able to prevent it.”

Good luck with that.
They're quite happy with the outcome.

The Actual Muslim Bomb Plot Against a Jewish Center No One is Talking About

While the media has spent a great deal of time dwelling on bomb threats, it has shown far less interest in an actual bomb plot against a Jewish center. The reason is obvious. The plotter was a Muslim. And now the efforts to excuse him, like every other Muslim terrorist, on the grounds of mental illness fell through. 
A South Florida man has been ruled mentally competent to stand trial on charges of plotting to bomb a synagogue and Jewish school in support of the Islamic State terrorist group.
Prosecutors say a Miami judge issued the decision Thursday for 41-year-old James Medina, who is scheduled to stand trial in August. His attorney had questioned Medina's mental state and ability to assist in his defense.
The FBI says Medina plotted with an undercover informant to bomb the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center last April during Passover.
FBI recordings show Medina allegedly supported the Islamic State terrorist group and claimed an obligation to attack Jews in the U.S. He has pleaded not guilty.
James Muhammad/Medina was a Muslim convert. He was two kinds of minority so the media showed very little interest. Instead the usual two excuses for Muslim terrorists quickly emerged...
1. He was mentally unstable
2. The FBI set him up
The latter claim has been used by the left in defense of a series of Muslim terror plots against Jewish centers. The left shows no interest in actual bomb plots by Muslims against Jews. Its concern about anti-Semitism is as phony as the trolling by Steven Goldstein, a gay rights activist, and his exploitation of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, to push left-wing memes. The left either defends or covers up for genuine Muslim anti-Semitic terror. While the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect's online account squawks, it pushes demands for more Muslim migrants to bomb more Jewish centers.
The left does not care about actual anti-Semitism. It is anti-Semitic.

Police Release Mugshot of Westminster Killer Khalid Masood

 Khalid Masood

London’s Metropolitan Police have released the first photograph of Islamist Killer Khalid Masood, who went on a rampage in Westminster on Wednesday.

Four have now died as a consequence as a consequence of Masood’s terror attack, in which he drove a high-powered hired car into crowds of people on Westminster Bridge before rushing the Houses of Parliament with a knife, stabbing and killing a police officer before being fatally shot by a protection officer.
The release of the image by police comes as the force appeals to the public for any information they may have about the Islamist killer, with senior police officer Mark Rowley remarking “We want to hear from anyone who knew Khalid Masood well and can provide us with info about places he has recently visited”.
While Masood is known to have gone by a number of names, Scotland Yard stated that among them were Adrian Elms and Adrian Russell Ajao. Acting Deputy Commissioner Mark Rowley said the force was continuing its investigation to determine whether Masood had been self-radicalised or had been encouraged by others.
Breitbart London reported Friday how Masood, an Islamic convert, had lived in a number of neighbourhoods in Britain with strong associations with radicalism including East London, Luton, and most recently Birmingham. Convicted multiple times for criminal offences, the killer had also spent time in prison.
British newspaper The Sun reports the remarks of his West Midlands neighbours, who said the man had a “split personality” — that he would give their children lifts home from school but would turn “evil” if the subject of religion was broached. Polish neighbour Anna told the paper: “His face would change in a moment and his eyes would go hard and look evil.
“He often went off about how British people didn’t bring up their kids right and sent them to poor standard schools.
“I am a Catholic and he had a go at me saying the school I sent my children to was rubbish and not as good as Muslim schools”.

The goal is to humanise the terrorist, so to speak

 - The goal is to humanise the terrorist, so to speak
UNREAL SWEDEN: Gothenburg City Theatre is now performing the play "Jihadisten" (the jihadist) - to better understand ISIS terrorists.

With the play "Jihadisten," visitors to the Gothenburg City Theatre may now get a more nuanced picture of the Swedish IS terrorists who are traveling to Iraq and Syria to participate in the ongoing war.

During Wednesday night, the theatrical play "Jihadisten" (the jihadist) premiered at the Gothenburg City Theatre. The play is about what happens to young people in Sweden when they are radicalized and eventually decide to become part of the terrorist group IS. But the play is also about the broader context of the terrorists, reports Swedish Television, SVT, which has interviewed Johan Gry, the screenwriter and director.

- The goal is to humanise the terrorist, so to speak, and to dare to do it. Daring to ensure that the terrorist is a human being, he says, and continues to clarify his point.

- Because if we do not dare do that, then we dehumanize this person the same way as they dehumanize their victims, and if we can not understand or try to understand this person, we will not do anything about the basic problems.

Also, a panel discussion was scheduled after the show for a discussion of why young people choose to join the terrorist group. Gry explains to Swedish Television that the play is not about defending the terrorists, but rather to provide an understanding of why people choose to become terrorists.

The theatre has a capacity of 600 people.

The Swedish newspaper Nyheter Idag, has tried to get a comment from the press officer of the Gothenburg City Theatre, with no results.

From Ekman and Bergman to ISIS-propaganda on stage, can you believe it.

Canadian Parliament Passes Controversial Islamophobia Motion

The Canadian House of Commons has passed motion M103 which singles out the criticism of Islam as a form of “Islamophobia”. Critics condemn it as an attack on free speech.

Motion M103 was tabled by Iqra Khalid, a Muslim member of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party. It states the government must “condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination”, was taken to vote on Thursday evening where a total of 201 MPs voted for it and only 91 voted against, Canadian broadcaster Global News reports.
The text of the motion does not clarify what constitutes “Islamophobia” and has led many to speculate what that may mean in the future, with some critics fearing it could lead to Shariah law courts. This concern has led to the circulation of an anti-Shariah petition on the Parliament of Canada website, which has so far been signed by over 24,000 people.
Ms. Khalid, who was born in Pakistan and moved to the UK and then to Canada, said the definition of Islamophobia was: “The irrational hate of Muslims that leads to discrimination.”
When Conservatives asked her to remove Islamophobia from the motion, she said: “I will not do so, any more than I would speak to the Holocaust and not mention that the overwhelming majority of victims were six million followers of the Jewish faith and that anti-Semitism was the root cause of the Holocaust.”
Another part of the bill that has stirred controversy is the passage that asks the government to “recognise the need to quell the increasing public climate of hate and fear”. It is currently unknown what measures the government will take to “quell” “hate and fear” as the motion is not classified as a law and has no effect on current criminal law.
The Conservative Party of Canada are currently holding leadership elections and many of the candidates have come out against M103 including one of the frontrunners, Quebecer Maxime Bernier. Mr. Bernier, a conservative with libertarian free market leanings, said he voted against the bill tweeting: “Free speech is the most fundamental right we have. I am opposed to #m103. Canadians should be treated equally regardless of religion.”
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who during the election campaign championed Muslim women wearing hijabs and full face niqabs, dropped an appeal by the previous government that would not allow women to wear niqabs to Canadian citizenship ceremonies.
Trudeau has also appeared at many mosques, including one where the women weren’t allowed in the main prayer room with the men but were forced to pray in a separate area upstairs.
The self-proclaimed “feminist” Prime Minister said: “Diversity is a source of strength, not just a source of weakness, and as I look at this beautiful room — sisters upstairs — everyone here, (I see) the diversity we have just within this mosque, within the Islamic community, within the Muslim community in Canada.”

Will the West Please Stop Siding with Criminals?

by Khadija Khan
  • What is agonizing is that people either enjoyed or criticized the joyful act of a teenager, but no one seems to be noticing that this public trial and her forced apologies only mean further isolation for the young Muslim women.
  • Most horrifying is that it seems that even the West has started to buy into the version of "modesty" that these extremists in the Middle East have been forcing on women.
  • Why has no one -- especially politicized, self-absorbed women's groups -- come to help? Instead, as in the recent Women's March, they have been advocating for more women's imprisonment.
  • It is important for as many people as possible, both in Britain and world-wide, to say how much they love her beautiful spirit and that they totally stand by her right to dance, sing, play or have fun.
The growth in systematic abuse of women, especially by Islamists in the West, requires democratic governments to introduce strong measures to stop this abuse, before abusive mullahs start harassing women of all faiths, to force them to submit to their wishes.
The recent threats and harassment of a British "Hijabi girl" by Islamists in Birmingham, England, merely for a video showing her dance, have re-exposed the ugly face of this autocratic mindset that owes its existence to extremist states such as Saudi Arabia and Iran.
Enslaving women in general and inflicting repressive agendas -- such as domestic violence, sexual abuse, segregation, allowing no say in choosing a partner, education or profession, with abysmal living standards often part of the abuse -- is just a small measure of the jihad that the Islamists have managed to unleash across the globe.
The video of "Hijabi girl" (her name is not known), happily dancing in public, was recorded and uploaded to the internet by bystanders.
The video led to aggressive shaming and harassment of the girl by the local Islamist "morality police": men who ranted against her "impious" act and reportedly made her apologize publicly online.
Sobbing, she admitted how supposedly evil and shameless she was to have brought such dishonor to her family and religion.
It is important for as many people as possible, both in Great Britain and world-wide, to say how much they love her beautiful spirit and that they totally standby her right to dance, sing, play or have fun. These are very normal human activities.
Have things come to such a pass that now. even in Britain, only the most courageous can spontaneously express feelings of fun?
What is agonizing is that people either enjoyed or criticized the joyful act of a teenager, but no one seems to be noticing that this public trial and her forced apologies only mean further isolation for the young Muslim women.
To accept this coercion would be just a call on young Muslim girls to be quiet and submit, rather than ever even to think about showing their normal, lighter side. Most horrifying is that it seems that even the West has started to buy into the version of "modesty" that for centuries these extremists in the Middle East have been forcing on women.
The human rights groups seem to have become so apologetic towards the extremist abusers that they now turn their backs on the victims of these abuses -- the people who need human rights groups the most. Perhaps they believe that supporting the poor girl would mean offending Muslims or the "symbol of Islam" (hijab) -- which means they endorse the extremist version of Islam and the abuses that come with it.
The poor girl was shown no solidarity by any supposed champions of liberal causes. Instead, she was thrown to the hounds and left to face her torment alone.
It is also sad that the girl's family has probably also given up, possibly due to the threats, and possibly out of fear of these extremists.
The massively destructive, wrong-headed political policies of Western governments -- such as keeping silent on the abuses of women by Muslim extremists involving, for example, underage and forced marriages, female genital mutilation (FGM), sharia courts in the UK and accepting the existence of no-go zones where the extremists enjoy impunity and thrive -- are also to be blamed for the increase in violations of women's rights. Politicians and the policy-makers are apparently too scared of being accused of committing some fabricated "Islamophobia" or "infringing on the rights of Muslim citizens", so they choose to keep their eyes shut to the plight of these women.
An image from the video "Right to choose: Spotting the signs of forced marriage - Nayana", produced by the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office. In 2013, 1,302 victims of forced marriage sought help from the British government's Forced Marriage Unit.
This is not an isolated incident in which a young Muslim girl was victimized by the extremists just for innocently being herself. In Canada, famous video blogger named Froggy, of Pakistani origin, suffered similar harassment. She was also vilified by puritanical extremists for wearing a hijab but living a Western lifestyle by hanging out with young men and uploading videos of teenage fun.
In Darmstadt, Germany, 19-year-old Lareeb Khan was killed in 2015 by her parents when she decided to take off her hijab and pursue a normal life. Her father, Asadullah Khan, claimed that he had killed his daughter to save the honour of his family. He alleged -- whether it is true or not we do not know -- that the girl was having sexual relations with a boy of whom her family disapproved.
Her mother admitted to being present at the time of Lareeb's murder, but claimed she could not rescue her due to both fear and illness. Lareeb's sister, Nida, however, stated that her mother was an accomplice to the crime, and used to thrash her.
In a pathetic attempt at exculpation, Lareeb's parents claimed that they were victims of the extremist Pakistani state and society. However, they chose, when they were given refuge and protection by a Western state, to impose similar abuses.
Extremists use shaming and harassment as punishment and deterrence for any woman in their communities who tries to break a barrier to regain her life.
This double edged-sword not only silences the victims of the abuse but also sends a message to the other women also not to try to escape their imprisonment.
Why has no one -- especially politicized, self-absorbed women's groups -- come to help? Instead, as in the recent Women's March, they have been advocating for more women's imprisonment.
The notion that a hijab or a conservative lifestyle is a matter of choice for Muslim women might sound sympathetic to Westerners. It is not. In reality, there is no choice. The supposed choice is, in fact, a one-way street from which trying to exit can cost a woman her life.
These extremist Muslims need to be taught by society itself that they must respect individual freedoms and equality -- by law.
Many liberal women, doubtlessly well-intended, seem love to wearing hijabs supposedly "in solidarity"; what they do not understand is that for millions and millions of Muslim women, who dare not say so, it is not a symbol of freedom and "protection" -- like a slave-owner "protecting" his property -- but of repression and imprisonment. It is forced upon women, now even in the West, and, worse, with the wholehearted complicity of the West.
It is also a time for governments purportedly in favour of human rights no longer to sweep these mafia tactics under the carpet.
It is time for politicians, governments, policy-makers, clerics, human rights groups and "liberals" to stop siding with criminals who commit assault, battery, and even murder, and to start protecting their citizens.

EU Highlights ‘Growing Menace of Right-wing Extremism’ Day After Westminster Attack

Top Eurocrat Julian King urged people “to keep in mind the growing menace of Right-wing violent extremism” just one day after a radical Islamic terrorist murdered a number of people in Westminster, London.

King, the European Commissioner for the Security Union and the only British member of President Jean-Claude Juncker’s cabinet, was speaking at the launch of a book entitled: The Challenge of Jihadist Radicalisation in Europe and Beyond.
“I think we also need to keep in mind the growing menace of Right-wing violent extremism,” he said.
“I’d just like to pause for one moment on this” he emphasised, “I’m not aware of a single EU member state that is not affected in some way by Right-wing violent extremism.”
EurActiv reported that, while King did not believe “every white racist attack was a backlash to jihadist violence”, he did suggest that “Right-wing extremism can have an impact on [Islamist] radicalisation”.
The Commissioner did not substantiate this, beyond referencing an alleged increase in “attacks against mosques and asylum centres”.
He was also raised “the brutal murder in the UK of the British Member of Parliament, Jo Cox” by Thomas Mair – a man with a history of mental illness who was turned away after attempting to seek treatment the day before he carried out his attack.
King claimed that “such attacks are no less appalling [than Islamic terrorism] but tend sometimes to go less reported and to attract less attention”. The attack on Mrs. Cox received intense, days-long coverage in the media.
King also referenced the example of Norwegian shooter Anders Brevik – whose victims were drawn overwhelmingly from the white majority population, much like Mrs. Cox in the UK – as “a horrible reminder of devastation one violent extremist can inflict”.
Right-wing extremism, King concluded, “exists in its own right, and we need to be conscious of that and we need to take that into account when we’re thinking about how most effectively to counter radicalisation. Radicalisation comes in different shapes and forms.”
King did not draw a distinction between Mair and Brevik and the “Right-wing” as a whole; however, Prime Minister Theresa May insisted the attack in Westminster was not reflective of Islam and therefore “not an act of faith”.

“It is wrong to describe this as Islamic terrorism,” she said. “It is a perversion of a great faith.”

Report: 9 in 10 Gang Rapists In Sweden Have Foreign Origins

A new report suggests that in cases of gang rape or sexual assaults involving two or more attackers in Sweden, 85 percent of the attackers come from a foreign origin.

The information comes from a Swedish website “Gang Rape Sweden” which has kept tabs on the various instances of group rape that have occurred in the country over a period from 2011 to 2015. The site lists the various rapists’ names, case numbers, and other details which show the national origins, if known, of the attackers. According to the site, “All records and documents available on this website are Swedish public records.”
The site claims that in total between 2011 and 2015 there were 125 individuals accused and convicted of participating in group sex attacks. The majority, 41, come from unknown countries outside of Sweden, and they are followed by 23 from Afghanistan and 20 from Sweden itself. The total number of non-Swedes amounts to 105 or around 85 percent.
The site makes a distinction of those accused of true gang rape (participating in sex acts) and those tried along with a rapist for other crimes like failure to disclose the sex attack. Of the “true gang rapes,” they measure 50 such cases.
Details are also given on the site as to the nature of the accusations, with thirteen of the gang rapists accused of having sex with underage children. Among those accused of molesting minors, none of the suspects are Swedish.
The longest sentence for rape occurred in the case of Bardiya Coen Pajouhi, who comes from an unknown country and received a nine-year sentence for aggravated rape, though it says he will not be deported to his country of origin.
Among those convicted of raping a child, many of the attackers were underage themselves, which matches previous reports of young boys and girls being raped in or around asylum accommodations. In one particular attack, a group of boys from Afghanistan took another young asylum seeker into a wooded area in Uppsala where they beat and raped him, filming the attack on their mobile phones.
The Afghani migrants who raped the boy, who is said to have been under the age of 15, were tried and found guilty, but will not be deported back to Afghanistan because Swedish courts have deemed the country “too dangerous” for them to return to.
In the statistics provided by the site, only 30 of those convicted face deportation, as opposed to 73 who will not be sent back to their countries of origin, more than double.

The Swedish government refuses to keep official statistics that track the origin of criminals and have not done so in over a decade. One police officer, Peter Springare, blew the whistle on migrant crime back in February of this year, claiming that almost all of the serious criminal activity in Sweden is committed by foreigners and migrants.

A Week of Terror and Diversity in Europe: Saturday. Wednesday. Thursday. How many more days will it take?

On Saturday, Ziyed Ben Belgacem pays a visit to Orly Airport in Paris. He grabs a female soldier from behind and grapples for her rifle while holding a pellet gun to her head. He warns the other soldiers to drop their rifles and raise their hands.
He shouts, "I am here to die in the name of Allah ... There will be deaths."
He’s mostly right. It’s the plural part he gets wrong. The soldier goes low. Her friends shoot him dead. But he’s not entirely wrong either. There will be deaths. Even if they aren’t at Orly Airport.
French Police go on to investigate the motive of the Tunisian Muslim settler. His father insists that he wasn’t a terrorist. The media rushes to blame drugs for his attack. It reports widely on the drugs in his system rather than the Koran found on his body. No one asks if he was on drugs or on Jihad.
Ziyed Ben Belgacem had been in and out of prison. He was known to the authorities as a potential Jihadist and had been investigated for “radicalization” back in 2015. He had been suspected of burglaries last year and had been paroled in the fall. The system had failed all over again.
Prince William and Kate had been in Paris meeting with victims of the Bataclan Islamic terror attack. They returned to the UK, but media reports emphasize that the latest attack wouldn’t change their plans. But the UK was no refuge from Islamic terror. Not even Westminster Palace was.
On Wednesday, Khalid Masood, a Pakistani Muslim settler, rents a car in a town near Birmingham from an Enterprise rent-a-car shop sandwiched between a Staples and a beauty salon offering walk-in eyebrow waxing. Over a fifth of Birmingham is Muslim and by the time the bloodshed was over and Masood was in the hospital, police raided a flat over a restaurant advertising “A Taste of Persia”.
Because diversity is our strength.
Masood’s victims were certainly diverse.  The men and women he ran over or pushed off Westminster Bridge included Brits, Americans, Romanians, Greeks, Chinese, South Koreans, Italians, Irish, Portuguese, Polish and French. That is the new form that diversity takes in the more multicultural cities.
The victims are diverse. The killers are Muslim.
Prime Minister May spoke of it as a place where “people of all nationalities and cultures gather to celebrate what it means to be free.” But not all nationalities and cultures. Some come there to celebrate what it means to kill infidels for the greater glory of Allah. Just as some pray for London and others pray for the flag of Islam to fly over Westminster Palace.
Khalid Masood, like Ziyed Ben Belgacem, had been in and out of prison. Like France’s Tunisian Muslim terror settler, the UK’s Pakistani Muslim terror settler had been investigated for “violent extremism”.
Nothing came of it.
For thirty years, Masood went in and out of prison. And one fine day he rented a car and began killing. He was on the radar, but nothing was done. And now some are dead and others are wounded. And the politicians who could have prevented it give their speeches and celebrate the magnificent diversity that filled hospitals with the citizens of a dozen nations.
"As I speak, millions will be boarding trains and aeroplanes to travel to London, and to see for themselves the greatest city on Earth,” Prime Minister May declared, throwing in a pitch for tourism. “It is in these actions - millions of acts of normality - that we find the best response to terrorism."
Come to London. Stroll and see the sights. You probably won’t get Allahuakbared to death. And if you do, the best response is a million acts of normality, apathy and denial.
Mayor Sadiq Khan vowed that after a brief vigil, it would be "business as usual".
He was right.
On Thursday, Mohammed, a Tunisian Muslim tries to drive a car through a pedestrian mall on a major shopping street in Antwerp. It was right around the anniversary of the Brussels bombings in which Moroccan Muslim settler terrorists had killed 32 people and wounded 300.
And a year later it was business as usual.
On Wednesday, King Philippe had dedicated a memorial in Brussels titled, ‘Wounded But Still Standing in Front of the Inconceivable’. "We have to stand up and say 'no' to those acts that are not believable, that are not bearable," its sculptor insisted.
But the seventh King of the Belgians had a somewhat different message. “It’s the responsibility of each and every one of us to make our society more humane, and more just. Let’s learn to listen to each other again, to respect each other’s weaknesses,” he said. “Above all, let us dare to be tender.”
The Tunisian Muslim driving into a pedestrian mall did not dare to be “tender”. He didn’t respect the weaknesses of a society that tolerated him.
Belgian soldiers deployed for the anniversary spotted him. The police gave chase.  Pedestrians scurried out of the way. The Muslim settler from France was taken into custody for endangering the public. It is hoped that the arrest was made in a properly tender fashion.
Police found a riot gun, knives and fake passports in his car.
The Antwerp police chief said that Mohammed had been known to the police and had been involved in the illegal possession of weapons in France. But official reports blamed the drugs and alcohol in his system. Like fellow Tunisian Ziyed Ben Belgacem, he wasn’t a terrorist, just a drunk and a junkie.
The police urged everyone to keep calm and return to normalcy. Everything was being done to ensure the safety of Antwerp residents and tourists.
Business as usual.
Meanwhile the Antwerp Town Hall had gone from flying British colors in solidarity with the victims of the London attack to worrying over an attack at home.  Just as William and Kate had come from terror in France to terror at home.
British authorities claimed that they foiled a dozen terror attacks last year. There are arrests for terror plots in France and Germany. Every week there is either a terror plot or a memorial for the last terror attack before we are told to go on with our million acts of normalcy.
Some days the terrorists screw up. They pick what they think is an easy target, but she refuses to let go of the rifle. Or they overestimate how much alcohol and cocaine they need to nerve themselves up to kill and die. Other times they get it right. Or right enough. And the news flashes around the world.
Somewhere along the way it wasn’t life that became normal, but terror. And the insistence on normalcy just normalizes the terror. A week with three terror attacks across Europe is no longer extraordinary. We have come to expect that there will be men trying to stab and run us over from Paris to Antwerp to London. And we have come to expect another Islamic terror plot targeting Kansas City, Miami, Columbia, New York, San Bernardino, Boston, Tampa, Dallas, Rochester, Springfield and any city.
We don’t know when or where the next attack will come. But we know whom it will come from.
The question is what are we going to do about it? We can pretend to be baffled the next time some Jihadi with a rap sheet taller than the London Eye and longer than London Bridge goes on a killing spree. We can nod our heads while the politicians throw a vigil and encourage a million acts of apathy.
Or we can end the flow of future terrorists and deport the existing ones.
Because they can’t run us over if we don’t let them in. They can’t bomb us if we don’t let them stay.
We can listen to King Philippe and “dare to be tender”. Decades of such tenderness are what led us here. Or we can dare to make the hard choices that will make us and our children safe for generations.
Saturday. Wednesday. Thursday. How many more days will it take?

Thursday, March 23, 2017


It never fails.
The blood has hardly been wiped off the sidewalk from the latest Muslim terror attack that the "Muslims fear backlash" pieces spread across the mainstream media. And there's often some sort of token Muslim victim who got a dirty look or something similarly devastating that's more important than the families who just lost their loved ones to Muslim terror.
Allow me to introduce you to the real victim of the London terror attack.

Muslim woman pays no mind to the terror attack, casually walks by a dying man while checking phone 
And here's the obligatory media freakout.
London Attack: Muslim woman trolled on Twitter - Daily Mail 
'Who is the real monster?' Internet turns on trolls who criticised 'indifferent' Muslim woman seen walking through terror attack  - Daily Mail 
London terror attacks: 'Muslim' woman on phone shamed but not white man -
People are making alarming assumptions about this photo of 'woman in headscarf walking by dying man' 
While people react in different ways to a terrorist attack, it's rather odd to be texting as you walk by a wounded person. More to the point this unknown Muslim woman feeds into the left's compelling need to shift the narrative by turning perpetrators into victims and manufacturing yet another blowback narrative. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if she's on television by tomorrow claiming to have been terrorized by the attention. 
All this noise conveniently diverts attention from the actual victims of the latest Islamic terror attack and the overall problem of Islamic terrorism.

Donald Trump Recognizes American Tourist Killed In London Terror Attack


President Donald Trump recognized the death of Kurt Cochran, an American citizen that was killed in the terror attack in London on Wednesday.

“A great American, Kurt Cochran, was killed in the London terror attack,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “My prayers and condolences are with his family and friends.”
Cochran and his wife were tourists, according to Breitbart London, and among the first people hit by the extremist’s vehicle as he drove into the crowd on Westminster Bridge. Cochran was killed, but his wife is recovering in the hospital.
Vice President Mike Pence also expressed his condolences.

London Terror Killer Named as Convicted Criminal Khalid Masood

London’s Metropolitan Police named the man responsible for Wednesday’s Westminster terror attack as British born Khalid Masood.

In a press release from Scotland Yard Thursday afternoon approximately 25 hours after the attack took place, the force revealed 52-year-old Khalid Masood, born in Kent but lately a resident of the West Midlands was responsible for Wednesday’s deadly attack that killed three, including a British-Spanish woman, an American tourist, and a police officer.
Revealing that the killer wasn’t being monitored for terror reasons but had previously been convicted of criminal offences, Scotland Yard said: “Masood was not the subject of any current investigations and there was no prior intelligence about his intent to mount a terrorist attack.
“However, he was known to police and has a range of previous convictions for assaults, including GBH, possession of offensive weapons and public order offences.
“His first conviction was in November 1983 for criminal damage and his last conviction was in December 2003 for possession of a knife.
“He has not been convicted for any terrorism offences”.
The statement comes hours after British Prime Minister Theresa May said the killer, at that stage unidentified, had been investigated by domestic intelligence agency MI5 in the past.

Bomb Squad Deployed, Weapons Found After Car Prevented From Driving Into Crowd in Antwerp, Belgium

A man has been arrested in the Belgian city of Antwerp after trying to drive his car into a crowd on a busy shopping street on Thursday morning, forcing pedestrians to jump out of the vehicle’s way.

Police stopped the French-plated car and arrested the driver this morning, apparently preventing an intended terror attack Thursday morning. Belgian newspaper 7Sur7 reports “weapons” were found inside the red Citroen car, and that bomb disposal engineers are presently on site.
The vehicle had been identified as suspicious by security services after it drove at high speed through a shopping street in Antwerp. The car was subsequently intercepted at the port of Antwerp and the driver arrested.
The mayor of Antwerp Bart De Wever called a press conference Thursday afternoon, calling the event a “possible attack”.
Authorities have raised security in the area following the incident, with the Belgian Prime Minister saying: we remain vigilant. Our security services have done excellent work.
The suspected attack comes less than 24 hours after three were killed and approximately 40 were injured in a similar car-knife attack by a known Islamist in London, United Kingdom. Belgian capital Brussels was attacked by Islamist killers on March 22nd 2016, just over one year ago, in a terror strike that killed 35.

The Real Lessons of the Dutch Elections

By Alex Alexiev

The Dutch elections of March 15 were billed around Europe and beyond as a battle royal between the forces of populist evil, as represented by Geert Wilders and his Freedom Party (PVV), and virtually everybody else in the motley crew of Dutch electoral politics. The victory of prime minister’s Mark Rutte’s VVD party (which lost 20% of its seats) over Wilders’s PVV (which added 25%), was greeted rapturously as a monumental defeat for populism and a great triumph for Europe across the political spectrum. In fact, it was nothing of the kind, and if its coverage showed anything, it was that the European press, much like the American mainstream press, had become a one-trick pony that is good at demonstrating political bias, but rather useless in helping one understand where Europe is going. For these elections did have some profound implications for the future not only of the Netherlands, but all of Europe, that were nearly completely missed in the tons of ink spilled on partisan post-mortems.
Two things stand out. An openly Islamist party made it into an European parliament on its very first try and the usual political home of Muslims in Europe heretofore -- the socialist Left, suffered a grievous defeat, likely as a result, with the Dutch Labor party losing all but 9 of its 38 seats. This is a paradigm change documenting the growth of political Islam in Europe and almost certainly ushers a new and disturbing trend.
The Islamist party is called Denk (‘think’ in Dutch, “equality” in Turkish) and it was founded by former Labor parliamentarians who are ethnically Turkish. Denk is as radical as Erdogan’s AKP, of which Denk claims to be an affiliate. It openly rejects integration, the worn-out mantra of the Left, which it sees as a form of racism, and instead advocates acceptance of Muslims and their culture as they are. Aiming to take advantage of the migrants’ youth, it urges voting at 16 and control of local government by the local majority, thus solidifying existing Muslim-dominated parallel societies in Dutch cities with large Muslim populations like Rotterdam, Amsterdam, the Hague, and Utrecht. It further calls for a ‘racism’ and Islamophobia register that would disqualify those listed from holding public office. It wants imams to be present in all schools, hospitals, and the military, whose education is to be paid by the state, but without any state interference in the curriculum.
It also has foreign political ideas that are closely aligned with those of Erdogan. It calls for EU policies that are pro-Palestinian and anti-American and, of course, vigorously denies that there was an Armenian genocide.
Denk is only six months old and yet it managed to garner 205,000 votes in the election. With nearly 1 million Dutch citizens of mostly Turkish and Moroccan descent, its prospects must be considered bright. Which brings us to the question of what makes Muslims, who in many cases have lived most of their lives in liberal European societies, vote for a party that openly rejects European norms and values. It is indeed puzzling that 60% of the German Turks and 70% of their Dutch co-ethnics voted for Erdogan in the last elections, as he systematically dismantled what was left of Turkish democracy. The most troubling implication of this is the simple question that European governments never dare ask in their happy integration talk. What happens to Europe if it turns out that its Muslims do not want to integrate?
And signs that this indeed might be the case are proliferating from all over the continent of late. It is, for instance, well established that most of the 20,000 or so jihadists who joined terrorist groups in Syria and elsewhere in the past few years were born, raised, and radicalized in Europe and not in the Middle East. It is also a fact that the radical growth of anti-Semitism in France and elsewhere is directly tied to the growing Muslim presence, which for more than a year now has necessitated de facto martial law in France. Nor are most other current trends sanguine.
Perhaps the main reason for the Islamists growing confidence is the belief that time is on their side. Regrettably, most demographic data unmistakably point in that direction. Europe’s native populations are old, tired, and declining, while the mostly unintegrated Muslims are young and vigorous. The median age in Germany, for instance, is a very old 46.8 years of age, while Muslims average 32 years, even as the dismal German fertility of 1.44 children per woman compares to a Muslim fertility that is close to twice as high. These demographic discrepancies were given further impetus by Angela Merkel’s policy in 2015 of inviting millions of mostly young, mostly male migrants without skills or education and limited chances of obtaining asylum. EU authorities claim that the number of asylum claimants in 2015 was 1,321,560, while the border police organization, Frontex, believes that 1,800,000 came in 2015 with any number of jihadists hidden among them. Since then, the flow has continued with half as many arriving in 2016 and Erdogan threatening that he would unleash a new tsunami of migrants if Europe does not do as he wishes.
Faced with this assault on its fundamental values, Europe has no better reaction than to gang up on a politician who must sleep in a different place every night to avoid being killed for his views. O tempora, o mores!

Italian Populists and Eurosceptics Hit Record High in Polls, Set to Win Next Election

Italy’s insurgent, populist, Eurosceptic party is on track to win the next general election, polling at its highest ever reading.

An Ipsos survey, published Tuesday in the Corriere della Sera newspaper, put the 5-Star Movement on 32.3 per cent of the vote, five and a half points clear of the ruling Democratic Party (PD).
The poll of some 5,000 people also put the right wing populist Northern League party on 12.8 per cent, ahead of former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia on 12.7 per cent.
An emerging split in the PD and divisions in the centre right have also aided the anti-establishment movements.
“Political parties that preoccupy themselves with their internal divisions are electorally doomed,” said the British-based think tank Eurointelligence in a note.
“We are now at the point where it becomes increasingly improbable for the PD to regain power after the next elections.”
So much for peak populism: in Italy the Five Star Movement is now five points ahead of the PD - 
The PD have dropped more than three percentage points in a month, as former Prime Minister Matteo Renzi attempts to reassert his authority following a walkout by a left wing faction, Reuters reports.
The breakaway faction, backed by former Prime Minister Massimo D’Alema, has created an entirely new party called the Democratic and Progressive Movement (MDP), which has the backing of 3.3 per cent of voters in the recent Ipsos poll.
The PD and MDP parties – along with a tiny centre right group polling at just 2.8 per cent – are the only openly pro-European Union (EU) parties in Italy.
Eurosceptics, therefore, could be in the driving seat after the next election. Despite this, the 5-Star Movement has said that they will not form a coalition with any other party, lessening the chances that they will form a government.

With general elections due this autumn or next year, the movement is said to be picking potential ministers from its MPs, with Luigi Di Maio, 30, tipped as their candidate for prime minister.
