The Truth Is out There... Nigel Farage States Plain Facts in New York.

For any normally intelligent human being, it is not hard to perceive what the fact if the matter is, in any situation, if one simply allows oneself to observe what is happening & what has happened &, more to the point, why it happened. We are living through a period in which those who would presume to speak for us lack the courage to simply state obvious facts, for fear of offending a politically correct agenda they do not themselves believe. It is, therefore, refreshing to see a British politician tell it how it is, vis-a-vis Islam, as he did in New York on Thursday, as reported by The Guardian (hat-tip to Pat Condell @patcondell):

Nigel Farage: UK mosques have been infiltrated by hate preachers
Ukip leader accuses government of appeasing Islamist extremism and warns religious minorities they need to understand the law of the land

Nigel Farage has claimed the mosques of Britain have been infiltrated by criminal hate preachers and warned that religious minorities needed to understand the law of the land.

The Ukip leader was speaking to a US audience about Islamic extremism before his appearance at a hard-right Conservative conference in Washington on Thursday, where he has been given star billing.

Asked about the recruiting of jihadis from the west, Farage said the UK had been "appeasing" Islamic extremists He repeated his belief that multiculturalism was to blame for the phenomenon of western citizens joining Islamic State (Isis).

"What we have done is, we have allowed, through a deliberate policy of multiculturalism, because we want to show the world what lovely people we are, and we have allowed different communities to develop a different culture within what ought to be a Judeo-Christian culture.

"In the case of my country, our constitution makes it perfectly clear. That is what we are as country. And whilst we want to be tolerant of other religions and other minorities, they have got to understand the law of the land in our country. We have lost sight of that.

"Longer term, there's a cultural issue here. We have got to be more assertive. We have got to be more self-confident about who we are."

During previous appearances on Fox News, where he has gained a cult following, Farage has talked about Europe allowing big Muslim ghettos to grow up.

Farage claimed "the mosques in Britain have been infiltrated by a series of preachers, funded with big money coming out of parts of the Middle East, and saying things in mosques that, if I said in the streets of London or you said in the streets of New York, we'd be arrested for pretty blooming quickly."

The Ukip leader said the government had been "turning a blind eye for a very long time", much like the way people were "frightened of our own shadows" in relation to the grooming of girls in Rotherham by men of Pakistani heritage for fear of being called racist.

Last month, Eric Pickles, the communities secretary, wrote to 1,000 imams asking them to vigilant about radical preachers and to help root out extremism. This angered the Muslim Council of Britain, which objected to their faith being singled out and the suggestions that Muslims were inherently apart from British society.

Following the Fox interview, Farage is expected at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday night, for which he has taken time out from campaigning in his target parliamentary seat of Thanet South in Kent. He will return on Friday to speak at the Ukip spring conference in Margate.

High-profile Republicans due to attend the US conference include Sarah Palin, Jeb Bush, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. Farage will speak in between an appearance by Palin and a reception hosted by the National Rifle Association gun lobby.

Unlike a growing number of Republicans, Farage opposes any ground troops to tackle Isis.

"We can provide expertise, we can provide help, but it's not British and American boots that are going to beat this," he said.

Punishing the Victim, Subject of Rapejihad in Protective Custody.

"Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: We got female captives in the war booty & we used to do coitus interruptus with them. So we asked Allah's Apostle about it & he said, "Do you really do that?" repeating the question thrice, "There is no soul that is destined to exist but will come into existence, till the Day of Resurrection." So says the most trusted compilation of ahadith in Islamic scripture, Sahih Bukhari, in volume seven, book 62, number 137. Mohammed & his followers habitually raped female non-Muslim captives & kept them as sex slaves.

Because Mohammed is held to be the epitome of rectitude & morality, which Muslims are enjoined to emulate, many Muslims living in England feel they can do this with delinquent native English girls. The real disgrace comes when those charged with upholding the law choose not to prosecute the offenders, but incarcerate the victim instead, as they did in Newcastle, as reported by ITV News on Thursday (hat-tip to QueeniesSoapbox @QueeniesSoapbox):

Teenager placed in secure accommodation 'to protect her from sex abuse'

A judge has ruled a teenage girl from Newcastle should be placed in secure accommodation, because she is thought to have been sexually exploited by Asian men.

Judge Simon Wood said the 17-year-old girl in care had been a "very significant victim of child sexual exploitation".

He said a "pattern" had emerged of her absconding and being found "in the company of inappropriate, much older Asian males".

He said one man believed to have been with her had recently been charged with more than 20 offences linked to child sexual exploitation.

His decision to allow the youngster to be placed in secure accommodation comes months after two High Court judges said it was fairer to target perpetrators of child sexual exploitation, not victims.

Judge Wood said he had considered targeting the men who were exploiting the teenager, but had concluded that he was not in a position to take such an approach.

He said he had been giving "chilling evidence" about the girl from a senior detective.

The detective had "impressed" on him that as long as the teenager was in secure accommodation she was "safe" and "could not be raped or worse".

And local authority social services staff had echoed those concerns.

Bomb Factory Found in Syrian's Edinburgh Flat.

"And fight with them until there is no more persecution & religion should be only for Allah; but if they desist, then surely Allah sees what they do." So Allah tells his deluded devotees, equating non-belief in Allah with persecution of Muslims, in his evil tome of trash, the Koran, in verse 8:39. This is why we see Muslims trying to kill non-Muslims, in one way or another, all over the world, by any means necessary.

This urge to kill can manifest itself at any time of life, not just in one's salad days, as so often observed in young jihadists jetting off to Syria. One person who came to jihad later in life is retired doctor, Faris al-Khori, as reported by the BBC yesterday:

Man found with bomb-making equipment at Edinburgh flats

A former Syrian doctor has admitted having a hoard of explosive ingredients and instructions on how to prepare bombs in Edinburgh.

Faris al-Khori, 62, had chemicals, ball bearings, bolt, nuts and a bag of toxic beans which can be used to produce the poison Ricin.

The haul was found after firefighters attended a 999 call over a Muirhouse tower block rubbish chute fire.

Mr Al-Khori was remanded in custody ahead of sentencing next month.

After the blaze was extinguished, fire crews forced entry to the flats to check no-one was inside but when they entered a property where Al-Khori was a tenant they found items that gave them "cause for concern".

Firefighters discovered mustard jars containing white powder and one marked "weed killer".

Al-Khori had a small quantity of a highly-volatile explosive which the forensic explosives laboratory refused to take as it was so dangerous.

The High Court in Edinburgh heard a bomb scene manager was requested along with chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear advisors and the building was evacuated.

A search was carried out at a further block in Leith where al-Khori lived with his wife and a further haul of material was recovered. A further evacuation was later carried out at the block which was sealed off.

Al-Khori admitted the items belonged to him and said acetone that was recovered was used to clean carpets and peroxide found was for clearing up after pigeons.

He said a quantity of fertiliser was used for plants on the balcony, although there were none there when police searched the premises.

His wife said he carried out "wee tests" and bought items from the internet retail giant Amazon.

Al-Khori, who trained in Iraq as a doctor, admitted a breach of the 1883 Explosives Substances Act.

Between 27 December 2007 and 27 April 2014 he possessed or had under his control explosives substances under circumstances such as to give rise to a reasonable suspicion that they were not for a lawful purpose at flats at Fidra Court and Persevere Court.

The maximum sentence is 14 years imprisonment.

A judge rejected a defence motion to free al-Khori, who at one stage faced terrorism act charges.

Advocate depute Alex Prentice QC told the court: "The plea is tendered on the basis that the accused was in possession of various items which, whilst not explosive in themselves, apart from 1g of lead picrate, could in combination be made into explosive substances.

"He accepts that the circumstances give rise to a reasonable suspicion that he did not have them for a lawful purpose."

'Significant inquiry'

The prosecutor added: "The Crown accepts the accused never made, or attempted to make, any explosive substance, explosive device or improvised explosive device."

Det Supt David Gordon, of Police Scotland, said: "This was a significant and complex inquiry for Police Scotland, working with our partners from the outset to safely deal with the volatile items that were being stored, and to seek to establish Al-Khori's motives for keeping them.

"Extensive inquiries both nationally and internationally were carried out, which did not identify any link to terrorism or extremism. We are satisfied there is no immediate threat to the community.

"Counter terrorism is one of Police Scotland's highest priorities, and whilst Al-Khori has no such known links we will always treat all information received with the utmost importance where any risk to the public is identified."

Beware the Grievance-Mongers, 'Civil Rights' Group Engaged in Incitement to Jihad.

  1. Narrated Abu Hurayrah: The Prophet said, "Khosrau will be ruined, & there will be no Khosrau after him, & Caesar will surely be ruined & there will be no Caesar after him, & you will spend their treasures in Allah's Cause." He called, "War is deceit."
  2. Narrated Abu Hurayrah: Allah's Apostle called: "War is deceit."
  3. Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah: The Prophet said, "War is deceit."

So says the most trusted compilation of ahadith in Islamic scripture, Sahih Bukhari, in volume four, book 52. Deceiving the infidel, as to the intentions & goals of its adherents, is part & parcel of Islamic doctrine. The name for it is taqiyya.

Thus, whenever a group Muslims congregate to oppose or criticise the actions of Westerners in trying to defend themselves against terrorism, we must always assume the lowest possible of ulterior motives. So it is with the pressure group, CAGE, & its leader, Asim Qureshi, who has been an active recruiter for & inciter of jihad, as reported by Newsweek yesterday:

Jihadi John: UK Campaigner With Links to Emwazi Called for Jihad

Serious questions have been raised over the British campaigner who was in touch with ISIS executioner 'Jihadi John' in the years before he left for Syria, after a video of him calling for followers to support jihad in Iraq and Afghanistan emerged today, and a top anti-radicalisation expert called his organisation's sympathies into question.

It was revealed this morning that Asim Qureshi, research director of an advocacy group for those affected by the war on terror, CAGE, had exchanged emails with Mohammed Emwazi, the Londoner revealed to be Jihadi John by the Washington Post, in the years before he travelled to join ISIS in Syria, where he went on to appear in the execution videos of Western hostages.

Qureshi
Emwazi
In a CAGE press release following the unmasking of the ISIS militant today, entitled 'Jihadi John: 'Radicalised' By Britain', Qureshi says that Emwazi "desperately wanted to use the system to change his situation, but the system ultimately rejected him". He proceeds to criticise the British security services for ruining the lives of a number of young people, turning them to violence because of counter-terror measures.

"We now have evidence that there are several young Britons whose lives were not only ruined by security agencies, but who became disenfranchised and turned to violence because of British counter-terrorism policies coupled with long standing grievances over Western foreign policy," he added.

But in a video sent to Newsweek, Qureshi himself is seen outside the U.S. embassy in London calling for protesters to "support the jihad of our brothers and sisters" in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and Chechnya.

In the 2006 video, Qureshi is speaking at an anti-U.S. rally for the pan-Islamic Hizb ut-Tahrir movement at the height of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. "When we see the example of our brothers and sisters fighting in Chechnya, Iraq, Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, then we know where the example lies," he says in the footage. "When we see Hezbollah defeating the armies of Israel, we know where the solution is and where the victory lies."

"We know that it is incumbent upon all of us, to support the jihad of our brothers and sisters in these countries when they are facing the oppression of the West. Allahu Akhbar! Allahu Akhbar!"

Qureshi worked for CAGE, then known as CAGE Prisoners, at the time the video was shot.

The British secular campaigning organisation The National Secular Society has also noted that Qureshi has previously said he disagrees with the term 'suicide bombings' and believes they should be referred to as "martyrdom operations".

Haras Rafiq, managing director of the anti-radicalisation think-tank the Quilliam Foundation, called CAGE's accusation that the British authorities had radicalised Emwazi through their treatment of him "rubbish" and questioned Qureshi's motives for blaming everyone apart from Emwazi himself.

"It is not anybody else's fault. It is not the British or Kuwaitis fault," says Rafiq. "It is his fault and the people who radicalised him. He is a cold-hearted killer."

"If you look at [CAGE's] raison d'être, they are there to defend these kind of people. There has been evidence that these guys are sympathetic to this type of ideology."

Rafiq
Begg
Rafiq speaks of CAGE's sympathies towards those with radical Islamic leanings, with a number of controversial figures among its ranks such as the group's outreach director, Moazzam Begg, a former Guantanamo detainee who was most recently charged with training for terrorism and funding terrorism in Syria but had the charges against him dropped last October.

But it is the sympathies of Qureshi that concern Rafiq. "There are quotes in the past of Asim Qureshi where he calls for jihad. While he was at CAGE, he called for it."

Rafiq concludes by saying that CAGE have "purely spun" the blame directed against the British security services and suggests that others may have been able to intervene in his radicalisation and departure to Syria. "If they knew him [Emwazi] why didn't they stop him?"

In a video address released today by Qureshi, he says Emwazi "faced non-stop harassment" as a terrorist suspect on British soil and therefore sought to find some recourse to "live his life outside the UK" and "away from harassment" so he could marry in Kuwait, the country of his birth where he had worked at a tech company between 2009-2010.

"The questions shouldn't be about Jihadi John but they should be about what role our security services have played in alienating people in this society and turning them away from being able to find solutions to the problems they have," Qureshi says.

A representative from CAGE was not immediately available for comment when requested.

Bangladeshi Zealots Butcher Atheist Blogger in Dhaka.

"Fight & kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait & ambush them using every stratagem of war." So Allah tells his bloodthirsty believers, in the most important verse of his hideous & incoherent Koran, number 9:5, otherwise referred to as the 'Verse of the Sword'. This is why Muslims kill Jews & Christians, who believe in god in the wrong way, & Sikhs, Hindus & Buddhists, who believe in the wrong god.

But surely the most reviled of disbeliever would be the atheist, who believes in no god whatsoever. This is the reason atheist bloggers in Bangladesh have come under attack in recent years from slavering members of Jamaat-e-Islami & it was only a matter of time before such a notable as Avijit Roy was assassinated, as reported by bdnews24.com yesterday (hat-tip to God @TheTweetOfGod):

Assailants hack to death writer Avijit Roy, wife injured

Unidentified assailants have hacked to death writer Avijit Roy and seriously injured his blogger wife Rafida Ahmed Bonya.

Police said the couple came under assault near TSC intersection at Dhaka University around 9:30pm on Thursday.

Witnesses said they were on a rickshaw returning from the Amar Ekushey Book Fair when two attackers stopped it, dragged them onto the footpath and started hacking them.

They were rushed to the Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) where doctors declared Avijit dead during an emergency surgery, its police outpost Inspector Mozzamel Haque told bdnews24.com.

DMCH casualty department's Residential Surgeon Riaz Morshed also confirmed bdnews24.com about Avijit Roy's death.

Islamist zealots have been threatening Avijit, a bioengineer and a naturalised US citizen, for his active campaign against Islamist radicals.

Avijit has been a regular bdnews24.com columnist and the founder of popular blog Mukto-mona.

He is the son of well-known physicist Ajay Roy who has taught at Dhaka University for a long time.

Avijit had suffered a deep gash on his head during the assault and Bonya lost a finger and suffered cut wounds.

She was still under treatment at DMCH.

Two machetes, Bonya's severed finger and a bag that possibly belonged to the assailants were recovered from the scene, Shahbagh police Sub-Inspector Sohel Rana said.

He told bdnews24.com: "We found some old folded newspapers inside the bag along with some other things. It seems the machetes were wrapped with the newspapers."

CID officials collected the evidence from the crime scene, he added.

One of the witnesses, a teashop owner in that area, told bdnews24.com that both assailants after carrying out the attack had dumped their weapons at the scene. Then one of them ran towards TSC and the other Suhrawardy Udyan, according to the witness.

Avijit's blogger friends say he was possibly trapped – some bloggers had invited him to a book fair event.

Police are investigating the lead to track down the culprits.

Avijit Roy is well known for his books 'Biswaser Virus' (Virus of Faith) and 'Sunyo theke Mahabiswa' (From Vacuum to the Great World).

Two of his recent titles had been launched at the ongoing Ekushey Book Fair.

His writing and blogging had evoked the ire of fanatics and he had been regularly threatened.

Thursday's attack bore a striking similarity to the one on legendary writer Humayun Azad in February 2004.

Azad was also returning to home from the Ekushey Book Fair when he was hacked with machetes by radical militants. He later died in Germany while undergoing treatment.

Militants also hacked blogger Ahmed Rajib Haider to death in a similar attack near his home at Dhaka's Mirpur in February 2013.

That was barely 10 days after the secular platform Ganajagaran Mancha started its Shahbagh-based agitation.

Islamist radicals had attacked other secular bloggers like Ashraful Alam and Asif Mohiuddin after the Shahbagh agitation polarised opinions in Bangladesh.

They were demanding capital punishment for war criminals and a ban on communal parties like the Jamaat-e-Islami.

Fanatic blogger Farabi Shafiur Rahman had issued death threats demanding that Rokomari.com, an online shopping portal, stop selling books of Avijit Roy.

Police had arrested Farabi in connection with Rajib Haider's murder, but he managed to secure bail later.

Buddhas of Bamiyan Redux: Ancient Nineveh Erased from History.

"Apart from the icon of the Virgin Mary & the child Jesus, & a painting of an old man, said to be Abraham, the walls inside [the Kaaba] had been covered with pictures of pagan deities. Placing his hand protectively over the icon, the Prophet told Uthman to see that all other paintings, except that of Abraham, were effaced." So says one of the oldest compendiums of Mohammed's life, Kitab al-Maghazi, number 834.

Mohammed destroyed all the idols of the Kaaba in Mecca, so Muslims must destroy idols too. Islamic law, & the more fanatical Muslims in general, have a real problem with other people's artefacts, labelling them articles of idolatry.

This is why the Afghan Taliban & their al-Qaeda guests shelled the Buddhas of Bamiyan in 2001. It is also why the Islamic State is systematically erasing the last vestiges of ancient Nineveh from history. Never mind that no one has believed in those gods for more than two millennia, ancient artefacts are being pulverised as you read this, as reported by the BBC today:

Islamic State 'destroys ancient Iraq statues in Mosul'

The Islamic State (IS) group has released a video showing the destruction of statues in Iraq.

The video shows statues being smashed using sledgehammers in what appears to be a museum in the city of Mosul.

Statues are also shown being destroyed reportedly at an archaeological site known as the Nergal Gate.

One of the militants in the video describes the artefacts as "false idols" and seeks to justify their destruction in religious terms.

In the video released via IS social media sites, black-clad men push over statues, smash them with sledgehammers and use a pneumatic drill to destroy the rubble.

The video shows a black-clad man drilling through and pulling apart what appears to be a stone winged-bull Assyrian protective deity that dates back to the 9th Century BC.

Assyrian winged-bulls, mercifully ensconced in the British Museum & the Nergel Gate, now lost to humanity.

Analysts say the artefacts are unique and priceless although the museum does also house copies of some items.

IS have controlled Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, since June 2014. The US military have said that an assault on the city by the Iraqi army could happen within months.

The region under IS control in Iraq has nearly 1,800 of Iraq's 12,000 registered archaeological sites.

The reported destruction of the statues follows recent reports that IS burnt down Mosul Library, which housed over 8,000 ancient manuscripts.

Dhimmitude in Nottingham as Habitual Criminal Walks Free after 'Refinding Islam'.

"You are the best of the nations raised up for men; you enjoin what is right & forbid the wrong & believe in Allah; & if the followers of the Book had believed it would have been better for them; of them (some) are believers & most of them are transgressors." So Allah assures his hopeless followers, in his worthless & unreadable tome of trash, the Koran, in verse 3:110. This is what many Muslims really think about their standing in our society & they take pains to demonstrate their superiority to the rest of us in different ways.

Various ploys to ensure special treatment for Muslims result: prayer rooms in students' unions, Muslim-only prayer rooms in students' unions when Christians & Jews start using the old prayer rooms, Muslim-only days at public swimming baths & halal-only prison food all serve to entrench the principle that Muslims are special & must be treated as such. It seems to be working, many a time we have observed English courts of law dispensing gobsmacking leniency to Muslim criminals expressly on the grounds that they are Muslims.

Yet another instance of this phenomenon has occurred in Nottingham, where a repeat offender has been let-off a custodial sentence for his fifteenth criminal offence, that of driving without a licence, nearly three times over the limit & crashing into a fire hydrant. The fact that he has rediscovered Islam was his argument for leniency. Imagine a born-again Christian receiving such mercy. See if you can believe the protestations of shame & repentance in this report from MailOnline yesterday (hat-tip to Mr Normal ن @PaulWilko657):

Unlicensed drink-driver who was three times over the limit when he crashed his car avoids jail after court hears he has re-found Islam

  • Asif Masood, 40, ploughed friend's Ford Focus into Nottingham hydrant
  • Police arrived and he said: 'I've had lots to drink and don't have a licence'
  • He had 98 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of breath - legal limit is 35
  • Masood, who has nine previous convictions, was given ban and a fine
  • Magistrates heard how he had re-found Islam and has given up alcohol

An unlicensed drink-driver who was three times over the limit when he crashed a friend's car has walked free after a court heard he had re-found Islam and was living a more pious life.

Asif Masood, 40, ploughed a Ford Focus into a fire hydrant in Nottingham after driving over a roundabout following a drinking binge on November 17 last year.

The car's wheel had come off, while tyre tracks and debris criss-crossed the road, magistrates heard.

When police arrived he was found swaying near his wrecked vehicle and told officers: 'I've crashed my car, I've had lots and lots to drink and I don't have a driving licence.'

He was breathalysed and produced a reading of 98 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath - the legal limit is 35.

But Masood, who has nine previous convictions for 14 offences, walked free from court after magistrates heard he had re-found his faith and was now teetotal after quitting drink and drugs

His solicitor added that the incident happened when Masood had been suffering 'considerable stress related to harassment and threats'.

As a result chairman of the bench Martin Rudge sentenced Masood to a 25-month driving ban and fined him £350 with £85 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

Magistrates do have the power to impose sentences of up to six months in prison.

Mr Rudge said: 'We have taken into account your guilty plea and the fact you made no attempts to escape from the incident.'

Prosecutor Sanjay Jerath told the court: 'At 1am police officers attended a road traffic collision and the defendant was stood near a Ford Focus and there was extensive damage to the vehicle.

'Tyre tracks could be seen across the island heading from the direction of Broxtowe Lane towards the location of the car.

'A fire hydrant was knocked over and the front wheel of the car came off the car and there was debris across the road.'

The court heard he had a string of convictions including failing to provide a specimen for analysis in 2004 and he was made subject to a community order for another matter in May last year.

Rob Keel, defending, said the offence was one his client was 'deeply ashamed and embarrassed about'.

Mr Keel added: 'It was a vehicle he borrowed and he fully accepts drinking a considerable amount of alcohol.'

'Fortuitously no other parties were involved - he simply drove over a roundabout and knocked over a fire hydrant.'

'He tells me he has found his faith again, he is a practising Muslim, and he has moved away from Nottingham and the negative influences and issues that were dragging him down.

'He is also drink and drug-free.'

Austrians not Happy with Muslim Immigration.

"O you who believe! Do not take the Jews & the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; & whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people." This is Allah the moon god's message of hope & brotherly love to his followers, in his widely-touted as perfect but actually drivel-filled book, the Koran, in verse 5:51.

If you saw a community move into your area, many of whom exhibiting such hostility to their hosts, you would feel wary, yes? And if world news reported on atrocities committed by believers of the same austere primitive doctrine as these hostile newcomers, what then? Public opinion would turn negative & fearful, naturally. It should not come as a surprise then that a poll in Austria has recorded such misgivings, as reported by The Local yesterday (hat-tip to Tommy Robinson @TRobinsonNewEra):

Poll: Majority fear radicalization of Muslims

The majority of Austrians feel that an increasing number of Muslims are becoming radicalized in their country and want to see more police on the streets, according to a new survey from market research company ÖGM.

The survey was commissioned by the Austrian public broadcaster ORF, for its programme Bürgerforum. 58 percent of the 500 respondents said that they felt that more Muslims were becoming radicalized in Austria. 30 percent felt this was not the case and that such statements were exaggerated.

62 percent felt that the coexistence between Muslims and non-Muslims in Austria was "not so good", and only 27 percent felt it was "rather good".

ÖGM noted that the survey was carried out after the shootings in Paris and Copenhagen, and that the results were likely to have been affected by these events.

41 percent of people questioned feared a similar attack in Austria but the majority, 47 percent, said they did not believe something like this was likely to happen.

Austria's government did not fare well in the survey, with 75 percent saying that they believed ministers had realized too late that the "Muslim immigrant community" presented problems.

86 percent felt that more police on the streets would help increase security and 72 percent said they were in favour of increased video surveillance and more monitoring of mosques and Islamic institutions.

Germans Indict Imam for Incitement to Kill... Guess Who?

"But you Jews went back on your word & were lost losers. You know that you have broken the sanctity of the Sabbath, so We said: 'Become monkeys despised & hated.' We made this punishment an example and a warning for those who fear Allah." So Allah tells his hate-filled followers, in his repulsive & disgusting Koran, in verse 2:64.

Allah hated Jews because the man who played Keith Harris to his Orville, Mohammed, hated Jews. Mohammed had attempted to convince the Jews of Medina that he was the latest one of their prophets & they rightly laughed in his face. Islam has been innately Jew-hating since then. This is why an imam from Aarhus in Denmark couldn't behave himself on a trip to Berlin & has fallen foul of Germany's stringent (though relatively recently passed, not before 1945) anti-hate-speech laws, as reported by The Local yesterday (hat-tip to Tommy Robinson @TRobinsonNewEra):

Germans charge Danish imam for anti-Jew threats
An imam from the controversial Grimhøj Mosque in Aarhus faces charges in Germany for leading a prayer in Berlin in which he called for the death of "Zionist Jews".

German officials have announced that they will press charges against Abu Bilal Ismail, the Danish imam who used an appearance at a Berlin mosque in July to call for the death of Jews.

According to a report from TV2 News, public prosecutors in Berlin will charge Ismail with incitement of hatred (Volksverhetzung).

Speaking at the Al Nusra mosque in Berlin on July 18th, Aba Bilal Ismail was caught on video calling for the death of Jews (see it below).

"Oh Allah, destroy the Zionist Jews. They are no challenge for you. Count them and kill them to the very last one. Don't spare a single one of them. Oh Lord, bring torment upon them," Ismail said.

Ismail later attempted to clarify his remarks, telling BT "I don't mean that all Jews should die."

"I prayed for God to destroy those Jews who kill us. It's not all Jews, because I know Jews who are good toward us," he said.

Ismail was also reported to Danish authorities by the chairwoman of the Danish Free Press Society (Trykkefrihedsselskabet) and the East Jutland Police initiated their own investigation into the imam's remarks to determine if they should press charges. An East Jutland Police spokesperson told TV2 that now that charges have been filed in Germany, a Danish case is unlikely to move forward.

Ismail is a regular imam at the controversial Grimhøj Mosque in Aarhus, which has long been suspected of radicalizing young Muslim men. The mosque was also the subject of a documentary from broadcaster DR last month, in which mosque leaders said that they want to see an Islamic caliphate established, that they don't believe in democracy and that a Danish convert who carried out a suicide bomb attack in Iraq is a hero.

Following that documentary, the mosque requested police assistance after receiving a number of threats.

Two week after that, Grimhøj Mosque received rare praise from police and Aarhus authorities, who said that the mosque's leaders have helped to slow the stream of Danish Muslims who travel to Syria as foreign fighters.

East Jutland Police have previously said that around two dozen of the at least 110 individuals who have left Denmark to fight in Syria have come from Grimhøj Mosque. But a police spokesman said that only one person from the Aarhus area is thought to have gone to Syria in 2014 and that person had no association with the mosque.

Ismail's Berlin sermon can be seen here:

Common Sense Triumphs in Austria as Mosque Funding from Abroad Is Banned.

  1. And let not those who disbelieve think that they shall come in first; surely they will not escape.
  2. And prepare against them what force you can & horses tied at the frontier, to frighten thereby the enemy of Allah & your enemy & others besides them, whom you do not know (but) Allah knows them; & whatever thing you will spend in Allah's way, it will be paid back to you fully & you shall not be dealt with unjustly.

So Allah tells his demented devotees, in Sura eight of his ridiculous & repulsive Koran. Muslim countries have been preparing to destroy us for years, it is why Saudi Arabia & Qatar fund terrorism. But they don't need to wait at the frontier to attack us, their foot soldiers are here already, waiting for orders in their mosques.

This is why Austria has now banned the foreign funding of mosques on its territory, they were always intended for bases of operations & centres for indoctrination. Just to further recommend the passing of this law, Turkish politicians, the same ones supporting the Islamic State, have condemned it, as reported by the BBC yesterday (hat-tip to ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ @_AndreaUrbanFoX):

Austria passes controversial reforms to 1912 Islam law

The Austrian parliament has passed controversial reforms to the country's century-old law on Islam.

The bill, which is partly aimed at tackling Islamist radicalism, gives Muslims more legal security but bans foreign funding for mosques and imams.

Austria's Integration Minister, Sebastian Kurz, defended the reforms but Muslim leaders say they fail to treat them equally.

The 1912 law made Islam an official religion in Austria.

It has been widely held up as a model for Europe in dealing with Islam.

The new measures, first proposed three years ago, include the protection of religious holidays and training for imams.

But Muslim groups say the ban on foreign funding is unfair as international support is still permitted for the Christian and Jewish faiths.

They say the legalisation reflects a widespread mistrust of Muslims and some are planning to contest it in the constitutional court.

Mr Kurz told the BBC the reforms were a "milestone" for Austria and aimed to stop certain Muslim countries using financial means to exert "political influence".

"What we want is to reduce the political influence and control from abroad and we want to give Islam the chance to develop freely within our society and in line with our common European values," he said.

Mr Kurz also stressed the bill was not a reaction to recent attacks by Islamic extremists in France and Denmark.

Gormez
Meanwhile the legislation has drawn wide reaction from Muslims across the world, with Turkey's head of religious affairs, Mehmet Gormez, adding his condemnation on Tuesday.

"Austria will go back 100 years in freedom with its Islam bill," Mr Gormez said, according to Turkey's state-funded Anadolu news agency.

Roughly half a million Muslims live in Austria today, around 6% of the population. Many of them have Turkish or Bosnian roots.

The parliamentary vote in Austria came as the French government announced plans to improve dialogue with France's Muslim community.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said the government would increase consultations with Muslim leaders.

It would also double the number of university courses for imams - making them obligatory for Islamic chaplains in prisons and the armed forces - to ensure they are "faithful to the values of the Republic", he said.

Meet Mohammed Emwazi, also Known as Jihadi John.

'When your Lord revealed to the angels: "I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads & strike off every fingertip of them."' So Allah tells his slavering savages, in his disgusting codex of codswallop, the Koran, in verse 8:12. It is this sort of evil rubbish that influences young Muslims across the world, including one Mohammed Emwazi, an immigrant to the UK, upon whom Western civilisation had very little impact, as he has now been named as the murderer, Jihadi John, as reported by the BBC an hour ago:

'Jihadi John' named as London man

The masked Islamic State militant known as "Jihadi John", who has been pictured in the videos of the beheadings of Western hostages, has been named.

He is Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwaiti-born British man in his mid-20s from west London, who was previously known to British security services.

British police declined to comment, citing ongoing investigations.

Emwazi first appeared in a video last August, when he apparently killed the US journalist James Foley.

He was later thought to have been pictured in the videos of the beheadings of US journalist Steven Sotloff, British aid worker David Haines, British taxi driver Alan Henning, and American aid worker Abdul-Rahman Kassig, also known as Peter.

'The Beatles'

In each of the videos, the militant appeared dressed in a black robe with a black balaclava covering all but his eyes and top of his nose.

Speaking with a British accent, he taunted Western powers before holding his knife to the hostages' necks, appearing to start cutting before the film stopped. The victims' decapitated bodies were then shown.

Earlier this month, the militant featured in a video in which the Japanese journalist Kenji Goto appeared to be beheaded. Hostages released by IS said he was one of three British jihadists guarding Westerners abducted by the group in Syria. They were known collectively as "the Beatles".

Boko Haram Bomb Bus Station, at Least 15 Dead.

"We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they set up with Allah that for which He has sent down no authority, & their abode is the fire, & evil is the abode of the unjust." So Allah tells his swivel-eyed savages, in the most hate-filled book ever written, the Koran, in verse 3:151. Allah, referring to himself with the royal 'We', really wants to cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve but, being just a dumb rock in a wall, he needs his stupid believers to cast terror for him. Hence Boko Haram, & others of their ilk, who have scored another win for Allah by killing at least 15 people at a bus station, as reported by the BBC half an hour ago:

Nigeria's Boko Haram crisis: Bombers hit Biu bus station

Two suicide bombers have killed at least 15 people at a bus station in north-eastern Nigeria, witnesses say.

Only one of the bomber's explosives detonated properly, the other bomber died at the scene, witnesses told the BBC.

This is the latest deadly bombing in the region, with attacks in Kano and Potiskum in the past week.

On Tuesday, President Goodluck Jonathan said the tide had turned against militant group Boko Haram.

Are Malaysians Going to Be Executed for Missing Prayers?

"Truly, if the Hypocrites stir up sedition, if the agitators in the City do not desist, We shall urge you to go against them & set you over them. Then they will not be able to stay as your neighbours for any length of time. They shall have a curse on them. Whenever they are found, they shall be seized & slain without mercy – a fierce slaughter – murdered, a horrible murdering." So the moon god Allah tells his addled acolytes, in his very own miraculous & perfect book, the Koran, in verse 33:60.

You see, it's not only Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Jains, Shintoists, Yazidis & atheists who are for the chop, the wrong kind of Muslim is too. Maybe he's Shi'ite if you're Sunni, or Sunni if you're Shi'ite. Or maybe he's just a lackadaisical backslider, a half-hearted individual lacking the fervour that Allah requires.

Such a person is due a horrible murdering. Worryingly, this seems to be what the headline of this report from the Malaysian Digest today (hat-tip to Patriot Infidel @StopShariaLaw) seems to be suggesting:

A Ride In A Mortuary Van Awaits Muslims Who Skip Friday Prayers In Terengganu

The Terengganu government is taking firm action against Muslims who display disorderly conduct in public as well as imposing punishment on Muslims who do not fulfill their Friday prayers which included a ride in a mortuary van.

The Terengganu Menteri Besar, Datuk Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman said that the approach by the Terengganu Council On Islam and Malay Culture (MAIDAM) is meant to educate the public, especially the youth, in practicing public morality.

This enforcement is in line with Section 34 and Section 35 of the Syariah Penal Code (Takzir) Terengganu Enactment of 2001.

From the media statement released yesterday, the state government supports MAIDAM's action besides asking for laws to be put in place to prohibit Muslim men from being present at public places during the time for Friday prayers.

According to the website teganukita.my, any individual who skips Friday prayers will be placed at a Centre for Progressive Counselling to follow a counselling session and seek knowledge with an ustaz (religious teacher) as well as receive guidance so as not to repeat the same offence.

However, if an offender is caught repeating the offence, they could be penalized in court.

"We are forced to act in this manner, as many have taken the issue lightly where they are not ashamed to be seen in public especially when they are aware that during that time of day they are supposed to be at the mosque for Friday prayers," he said.

Ahmad Razif also adds that in accordance with the law, all supermarkets within the state must be closed for two hours until 2:30 pm on Fridays, effective since the first of January of this year.

The Takeover Begins... Muslim Politicians Launch Influence Operation at Lords.

"Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the last day, nor do they prohibit what Allah & His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the jizya in acknowledgement of superiority & they are in a state of subjection." So Allah instructs his followers, in what is, quite simply, the worst book ever written, the Koran, in verse 9:29. Muslims must work, at all times & in all places, to overthrow non-Muslim regimes & impose Islamic rule, by violence if necessary, & subject the non-Muslims to second-class status.

What, however, if this could be achieved by non-violent means? All the better, surely? What if the host culture was so crippled by political correctness that it refused to see this gradual subversion & power grabbing? What if its leaders were so corrupt as to pander to the Muslim vote to the extent of tolerating the rapejihad of 1400 native girls, as they did in Rotherham & still are?

Well, it would be easy to subvert a democratic election by organising the Muslim vote to lobby candidates & gain control of parliamentary seats to further their ends. You could even get a servile native politician to support you, as the 'Muslim Manifesto' campaign has done, as reported by OnIslam.net yesterday (hat-tip to Tommy Robinson @TRobinsonNewEra):

UK Muslims Launch Manifesto at House of Lords

With the upcoming political elections in the UK a new initiative the Muslim Manifesto, was launched at the House of Lords on February 23rd.

"I have been in politics for 38 years, I have never come across the Muslim community actually trying to set their own agenda, to see what they need," Lord Nazir Ahmed told the House of Lords on Monday, February 23, at the session attended by OnIslam.net correspondent.

"Britain is one of the greatest countries in the world, where we have in law equality, we are equal members of society… We have nearly 3 million Muslims in this country, they are 4.4% of the population, there are 40 constituencies at least that can be swung with the Muslim vote.

"I'm not saying for one minute, and I would never advise the Muslim community to vote for one party. But what I say is that when you have hustings meetings, you invite the candidate, you give them the Manifesto, you ask them the questions, he who answers your questions correctly, vote for him, or for her, not for a party, as that would be a mistake. We are supporting candidates," he added.

Lord Ahmed was speaking at the launch of "Muslim Manifesto" consultation process in the House of Lords on Monday.

The session aimed at presenting a list of recommendations about the needs of British Muslims to all political parties ahead of the General Election on March 7.

The Muslim Manifesto is a call-to-action and a set of policy recommendations targeting all Muslim and non-Muslim British politicians in local councils and parliament.

Following a nationwide consultation process which began in late January, the final manifesto will be presented to all political parties contesting the General Election

Along with Lord Ahmed, the event "Manifesto Watch" was attended by MPs, Peers, leaders of the Muslim community, academics, thinkers, community activists and media professionals.

"I want to unite people, I want to bring people to a clear, common platform," Mohsin Abbas, one of the manifesto organizers who spearheaded its launch, was quoted by OnIslam.net correspondent.

Support

The initiate received support from a number of leading politicians, such as David Ward, the elected MP for Bradford East.

"When I look down here (at the Manifesto) I find it difficult to isolate or differentiate the Muslim-bit of it," he said.

"That is to say that while the issues within the first draft of the Manifesto have been designed to give a greater presence to the Muslim community in the UK, much of the substance of the Manifesto relates to what every person is looking for," he added.

Contributions and support also came from leading British Muslim scholars such as Syed Ali Raza rizvi who said, "The Muslim leadership in Britain has failed. So far we have been service providers, but we need to become decision makers… When you do not speak for yourselves then others may speak for you."

"You may dislike it, or you may like it, but that will be your philosophy, your theology, and your mind, if you do not speak for yourself."

A similar sentiment was shared by Lord Qurban Hussain

"I have to say to our Muslim leaders in the community, that we may want to have a second look at how we are performing as Muslim leaders," he said.

"The recognition being that for whatever reason, up until now, the Muslim identity, presence and contribution to society has been minimal, a counter to and contrary to the example taught to us in the Qur'an, 'Conduct your affairs by mutual consultation'," he added.

Shabbir Rizvi added, "All of us have a responsibility on how we take the community forward.'

This philosophy is shared by Ibrahim Taguri, a prospective MP for Brent central.

"Muslims are not one monolithic block, we are a diverse community, we have different views, different traditions, but the same faith… My main campaign as a future MP is to eradicate child poverty in the UK by 2020, an eminently feasible aspiration but one that has been neglected," he said.

Hina Malik, a teacher, added, 'There are a lot of women's issues as well, I'm not just talking about hijabs, I'm talking about marriages, I'm talking about divorces, the system you have to go through. And I feel that this is a very strong forum that we can and all come together towards, united, and work with the government in this country. Tell them how we can work together, as supportive role models going forward: engaging ourselves with this community, with the government, to bring a positive contribution to society."

One British Community

Lord Nazir Ahmed stressed that Muslims were not asking for special treatment in elections.

"Muslims are not saying that we want special treatment, all we're asking for is equal treatment. We want to be part of British society… To live peacefully, without being demonized on a daily basis," he said.

"I am also a strong advocate to say, don't vote for somebody because he happens to be a Muslim… It is better to have a candidate who supports your cause, whether it is to make sure you are a part of society… There are so many issues that need to be asked," he added.

Mohsin Abbas agreed stressing that the first state in Islam during Prophet time in Madinah included people from different faiths who lived equally.

"Can anyone argue with me, when the Prophet came, his notion of Ummah at that point was Sabians, Christians, Jews and Muslims. It wasn't exclusively Muslim," he said.

"Whether we choose now to turn the word Ummah into exclusively Muslim is not my problem, it's certainly not the definition I saw our Prophet use. Our politics is about Britain, about humanity, the human beings that live in this country."

"It is important for us as Muslims to recognize how the Prophet identified the Ummah – as a community of people with different faiths who come together for the benefit of the community.

"By failing to understand this very simple concept, over the generations the Image of Islam which significant segments of the Muslim community has propagated has led not to cohesion but to segregation based first on faith, and sadly worse by race."

"When Muslims understand the Prophetic definition of what it is to be an Ummah, then Muslims will understand the need to be active members of whichever society they live in, not just to seek benefits and rights for Muslims, but to ensure that people of all faiths and backgrounds are afford the same dignity."

Charlie Hebdo: 750000 British Muslims Sympathise with Killers.

She was of Banu Umayyya bin Zayd. When Abu Afak had been killed she displayed disaffection. Abdullah bin al-Harith bin Al-Fudayl from his father said that she was married to a man of Banu Khatma called Yazid bin Zayd. Blaming Islam & its followers she said:

"I despise Banu Malik & al-Nabit
& Auf & Banu al-Khazraj.
You obey a stranger who is none of yours,
One not of Murad or Madhhij.
Do you expect good from him after the killing of your chiefs
Like a hungry man waiting for a cook's broth?
Is there no man of pride who would attack him by surprise
And cut off the hopes of those who expect aught from him?"

Hassan bin Thabit answered her:

"Banu Wa'il & Banus Waqif & Khatma
Are inferior to Banu al-Khazrahj.
When she called for folly woe to her in her weeping,
For death is coming.
She stirred up a man of glorious origin,
Noble in his going out & in his coming in.
Before midnight he dyed her in her blood
And incurred no guilt thereby."

When the apostle heard what she had said he said, "Who will rid me of Marwan's daughter?" Umayr bin Adiy al-Khatmi who was with him heard him, & that very night he went to her house & killed her. In the morning he came to the apostle & told him what he had done & he said, "You have helped God & His apostle, O Umayr!" When he asked if he would have to bear any evil consequences the apostle said, "Two goats won't butt their heads about her", so Umayr went back to his people.

Now there was a great commotion among Banu Khatma that day about the affair of bint [daughter of] Marwan. She had five sons, & when Umayr went to them from the apostle he said, "I have killed bint Marwan, O sons of Khatma. Withstand me if you can; don't keep me waiting." That was the first day Islam became powerful among Banu Khatma; before that those who were Muslims concealed the fact. The first of them to accept Islam was Umayr bin Adiy who was called the "Reader", & Abdullah bin Aus & Khuzayma bin Thabit. The day after Bint Marwan was killed the men of Banu Khatma became Muslims because they saw the power of Islam.

So says Sirat Rasilallah (The Path of the Messenger of Allah), the earliest account of Mohammed's life. As we can see, a woman, Asma bint Marwan, was savagely murdered because she dared to criticise Mohammed & Mohammed was overjoyed as a result. Furthermore, we see that Islam was advanced among this tribe of pagans by the open assassination of a critic of this vile doctrine & its monstrous progenitor.

Mohammed's example has a binding effect upon those Muslims who take their Islam seriously; if Mohammed did it, it is right, end of. This explains why the Charlie Hebdo massacre happened. It accounts for the attempt upon Lars Vilks's life in Copenhagen. It explains why no Muslims protest about these acts of violence in their name but are up in arms about the cartoons themselves.

A survey carried out among British Muslims by ComRes has shown that 27% of them are supportive, sympathetic or sanguine about killing for cartoons. The UK Census of 2011 put the number of Muslims at 2786635, that is 4.4% of the total population (figures from Wikipedia.) Therefore, there are just over 752000 people in our country who would be OK with a Charlie Hebdo-style attack taking place here. Perhaps they would even assist. See how the BBC tries to lead with the upside of these facts in this report today (hat-tip to Tommy Robinson @TRobinsonNewEra):

Most British Muslims 'oppose Muhammad cartoons reprisals'

The majority of British Muslims oppose violence against people who publish images depicting the Prophet Muhammad, a poll for the BBC suggests.

The survey also indicates most have no sympathy with those who want to fight against Western interests.

But 27% of the 1,000 Muslims polled by ComRes said they had some sympathy for the motives behind the Paris attacks.

Almost 80% said they had found it deeply offensive when images depicting the Prophet were published.

Click here to get the full survey results.

Asked if acts of violence against those who publish images of the Prophet Muhammad can "never be justified", 68% agreed that such violence was never justifiable.

But 24% disagreed with the statement, while the rest replied "don't know" or refused to answer.

A sample of the cartoons published by Charlie Hebdo. Click, enlarge & propagate.

The poll, carried out between 26 January and 20 February, suggests 32% of British Muslims were not surprised by January's attacks on the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine, which published depictions of the Prophet, and a kosher supermarket in Paris.

The poll also suggests that almost half of British Muslims believe they face discrimination because of their faith and that Britain is becoming less tolerant, while the same percentage feel prejudice against Islam makes it difficult being a Muslim in the UK.

Some 35% said they felt most British people did not trust Muslims, and a fifth said they thought Western liberal society could never be compatible with Islam.

Of those polled, 95% felt a loyalty to Britain, while 93% believed that Muslims in Britain should always obey British laws.

Nearly 20% of Muslim women questioned said they felt unsafe in Britain, compared with 10% of men.
