Från texten:

Turkiet är inte, och har aldrig varit, en del av Europa. Turkiet är en del av den islamiska världen, och under flera hundra år ledde Osmanska riket jihad, det heliga kriget, mot det kristna Europa. Dess arméer nådde ända fram till Wiens portar, där de slogs tillbaka år 1683. Det spelar ingen roll att turkarna erövrade stora områden i Europa. Det gör dem bara till imperialister, inte till européer.
Europa är inte islamiskt, så vad är Europa? Den europeiska civilisationen har tre huvudsakliga källor: Aten, Rom och Jerusalem. Grekisk filosofi, romersk rätt och det judisk-kristna arvet. Mecka är inte med.
...
Hotet från turkarna har flera gånger genom historien fört européer samman, som i slaget vid Lepanto 1571 och vid belägringen av Wien 1683. Så var det också under det grekiska frihetskriget i början av 1800-talet. Över hela vår kontinent fanns en känsla av att Grekland sak är vår. Det utvecklades en filhellnistisk rörelse (av grekiska filos, vän, och hellen, grek), som understödde grekerna i deras frihetskamp mot turkarna genom pengar, propaganda och frivilliga soldater. Även i Sverige samlades det in pengar till grekerna. Och svenskar åkte ner för att slåss.
...
Många européer ansåg sig stå i skuld till Grekland eftersom grekerna en gång i tiden frambringat så mycket av det som den europeiska kulturen byggde på. Det smärtade dem att se landet plågas under det turkiska oket. Grekerna fick utstå massakrer, massvåldtäkter och slaveri. Det var ganska likt det som sker i vår tid under Islamiska Statens styre i Syrien och Irak. Grekiska kvinnor och barn togs som slavar och fördes bort till harem.
Blodbadet på ön Chios var ofattbart i sin grymhet att vår tids jihadistiska illdåd bleknar vid en jämförelse. Av öns 120.000 invånare överlevde bara 900. Händelserna förevigades av den franske konstnären Delacroix. Målningen hänger i Louvren.
Blodbadet på Chios
Den mest kände grekvännen är förmodligen den engelske skalden lord Byron, sinnebilden för det romantiska geniet. Han dog i dag den 19 april 1824 i Missolonghi. Det som drev honom var just denna känsla av att Greklands sak var vår, alla européers sak. Byron var fast besluten att riskera sitt liv för det Grekland, vars ljus en gång i ungdomen hade gjort honom till poet, som han brukade uttrycka det.

Marine Le Pen: ‘Survival of France’ At Stake in Second Round

by CHRIS TOMLINSON23 Apr 2017

In a victory speech Sunday evening, Front National anti-mass migration candidate Marine Le Pen called on patriots in France to support her against Emmanuel Macron, who she called the heir of unpopular French President Francois Hollande.

...

Le Pen called on all French patriots to support her regardless of their background or what candidate they voted for in the first round, saying that “the survival of France” was at stake in the upcoming second round.
...

Le Pen has promised to not only restore order to French streets, which has earned her more support from police officers than any other candidate but also to hold a referendum on the membership of France in the European Union.

The latest ECOSOC vote is reported in a U.N. press release:
Commission on the Status of Women:The Council elected by secret ballot 13 members to four-year terms, beginning at the first meeting of the Commission’s sixty-third session in 2018 and expiring at the close of the sixty-sixth session in 2022:  Algeria, Comoros, Congo, Ghana and Kenya (African States); Iraq, Japan, Republic of Korea, Saudi Arabia and Turkmenistan (Asia-Pacific States); and Ecuador, Haiti and Nicaragua (Latin American and Caribbean States).
The only good news: thanks to the U.S. calling a vote — breaking with the Obama Administration policy which in 2014 allowed Iran to be elected by acclamation — Saudi Arabia was not elected by acclamation, but instead received the least votes of any other country: 47 out of 54 votes cast, even though there was no competition given that there was an equal amount of competitors for available seats.
Here were the results of the elections, with all 54 ECOSOC members voting:
African States
Algeria: 54
Comoros: 53
Congo: 53
Ghana: 53
Kenya: 53
Asian & Pacific States
Iraq: 54
Japan: 53
Republic of Korea: 54
Saudi Arabia: 47Turkmenistan: 53
Latin American States
Ecuador: 54
Haiti: 54
Nicaragua: 52
It was a secret ballot, but the math tells us that at least 15 of the following democratic member states of the U.N. Economic and Social Council voted to elect Saudi Arabia to the U.N.’s women’s rights commission:
  • Andorra
  • Argentina
  • Australia
  • Belgium
  • Brazil
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • Czech Republic
  • Estonia
  • France
  • Germany
  • India
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Norway
  • Republic of Korea
  • South Africa
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • UK

No Joke: U.N. Elects Saudi Arabia to Women's Rights Commission



The Geneva-based human rights group UN Watch condemned the U.N.'s election of Saudi Arabia, "the world's most misogynistic regime," to a 2018-2022 term on its Commission on the Status of Women, the U.N. agency "exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women."

"Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women's rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief," said Hillel Neuer. "It's absurd. "Saudi women," said Neuer, "must have a male guardian who makes all critical decisions on her behalf, controlling a woman’s life from her birth until death, and Saudi Arabia bans women from driving cars."

LIVE WIRE: France Votes

by CHRIS TOMLINSON23 Apr 2017

French voters have taken to the polls to determine which two candidates will move on to the second round of voting on May 7th which will determine the next president of France.

Amidst tight security and an ongoing state of emergency, French voters are heading to the over 66,000 polling stations to cast their ballots for one of eleven candidates.
Polls leading into the vote have shown a close four-way race between anti-mass migration Front National leader Marine Le Pen, pro-globalist centrist Emmanuel Macron, centre-right conservative Francois Fillon, and Communist candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon.

US Assistant Secretary of State gives incorrect testimony about PA salaries to terrorists



Excerpts from: House Committee on Foreign Affairs Subcommittee Hearing: The Administration's FY 2015 MENA Budget Request: Priorities, Objectives and Challenges Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa Witness: The Honorable Anne W. Patterson Assistant Secretary Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs U.S. Department of State

Congressman Weber: Ambassador Patterson, do you have a dollar figure on the amount of stipends, or I forget what they call it, going to the terrorists in prison and the salaries?

Assistant Secretary Patterson: No I don't have a figure, this is, they pay families whose relatives are imprisoned and then they do pay some of these people after they're released and I don't have that figure...

Congressman Weber: If the PA is paying for terrorists in prison, we ought to also be willing to hit them with some economic sanctions of that sort, don't you agree?


Assistant Secretary Patterson: Sir, I think this obviously is a difficult problem, and when they pay the families of people that are in prison and they pay stipends, I would say that is a political prison and I frankly know that they're going to try and phase that out and we should give them an opportunity to do so.


Congressman Weber: But we can help them phase that out. We could give them some encouragement.

Assistant Secretary Patterson: I would be hard pressed to say which of the programs for the PA we should cut, I would be very hard pressed to say that.


Congressman Weber: Well, I think if we made it clear that we were cutting that dollar amount... Who brought this to light that they were paying terrorists in prison and the families of terrorists, the PA was, do you know?

Assistant Secretary Patterson: I don't know.

Congressman Weber: Why do you think we haven't acted on it to date?

Assistant Secretary Patterson: Because I think, one, that it is a political issue for the Palestinians, that these people are in jail, they have to provide for the families, and again I think that they plan to phase it out.

Fatah official: Israel is carrying out a "mass extermination as the Nazis did"



Bulletin: http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&...
Video: http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=1046...
Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub: "Never before this assault - not in 2012, not in 2008 and not in all our history - did the occupation have the courage to carry out mass extermination as the Nazis did in Europe in the 1940s, while the world remains silent - except for a few voices here and there - and our Arab home front is paralyzed..."
Awdah TV host: "In what ways can the Arab response - if we can call it that - be strengthened, while they are saying in Israel, 'what is happening in Gaza
is one percent of what is happening in Syria and Iraq and Libya'?"
Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub: "Disgraceful, those are despicable words, despicable as they [the Israelis] are. [Arab civil wars] are not their concern and not mine. Let it [Israel] also say that it is one percent of what Hitler did. Fine? Let it also say so. Let it admit that it is doing to the Palestinians - sorry for the expression - what Hitler did to them [the Jews]."

Fox News Contributor, Kevin Jackson: Black Shooter Killing White Men is "Legacy of Obama"

Pro-Sharia Leftist heroine Linda Sarsour falsely claims female genital mutilation “NOT an Islamic practice” - Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch


Why Jihad Watch? Because non-Muslims in the West, as well as in India, China, Russia, and the world over, are facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy their societies and impose Islamic law upon them — and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad.
Jihad (Arabic for “struggle”) is a central duty of every Muslim. Muslim theologians have spoken of many things as jihads: the struggle within the soul, defending the faith from critics, supporting its growth and defense financially, even migrating to non-Muslim lands for the purpose of spreading Islam. But violent jihad is a constant of Islamic history and a central element of Islamic theology. Many passages of the Qur’an and sayings of the Islamic prophet Muhammad are used by jihad warriors today to justify their actions and gain new recruits. No major Muslim group has ever repudiated the doctrines of armed jihad. The theology of jihad, which denies unbelievers equality of human rights and dignity, is available today for anyone with the will and means to bring it to life.

ROBERT SPENCER is the director of Jihad Watch, a program of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, and the author of sixteen books, including the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad. His latest book is The Complete Infidel’s Guide to Iran. Coming in 2017 is The Complete Infidel’s Guide to Free Speech (and Its Enemies).
Spencer has led seminars on Islam and jihad for the FBI, the United States Central Command, United States Army Command and General Staff College, the U.S. Army’s Asymmetric Warfare Group, the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), the Justice Department’s Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council and the U.S. intelligence community. He has discussed jihad, Islam, and terrorism at a workshop sponsored by the U.S. State Department and the German Foreign Ministry. He is a consultant with the Center for Security Policy and vice president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative.
Spencer is a weekly columnist for PJ Media and FrontPage Magazine, and has written many hundreds of articles about jihad and Islamic terrorism. His articles on Islam and other topics have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Examiner, the New York Post, the Washington Times, the Dallas Morning NewsFox News OpinionNational ReviewThe Hill, the Detroit NewsTownHall.comReal Clear Religion, the Daily Caller, the New Criterion, the Journal of International Security Affairs, the UK’s Guardian, Canada’s National PostMiddle East QuarterlyWorldNet DailyFirst ThingsInsight in the NewsAleteia, and many other journals. For nearly ten years Spencer wrote the weekly Jihad Watch column at Human Events. He has also served as a contributing writer to the Investigative Project on Terrorism and as an Adjunct Fellow with the Free Congress Foundation.

Pro-Sharia Leftist heroine Linda Sarsour falsely claims female genital mutilation “NOT an Islamic practice”


The feminists who hail Linda Sarsour don’t know it, but she is not telling the truth here. In reality, this repulsive practice is justified in Islamic texts.
“Circumcision is obligatory (for every male and female) (by cutting off the piece of skin on the glans of the penis of the male, but circumcision of the female is by cutting out the bazr ‘clitoris’ [this is called khufaadh ‘female circumcision’]).” — ‘Umdat al-Salik e4.3, translated by Mark Durie, The Third Choice, p. 64
Why is it obligatory? Because Muhammad is held to have said so: “Abu al- Malih ibn Usama’s father relates that the Prophet said: ‘Circumcision is a law for men and a preservation of honour for women.’” — Ahmad Ibn Hanbal 5:75
“Narrated Umm Atiyyah al-Ansariyyah: A woman used to perform circumcision in Medina. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said to her: ‘Do not cut severely as that is better for a woman and more desirable for a husband.’” — Abu Dawud 41:5251
“Do not cut severely,” but not “Do not cut.”
That’s why it is so common around the world. A Muslim cleric in Russia said that “all women should be circumcised.” A Muslim cleric in India likewise urged that it be done. A Muslim cleric in Australia said that Islamic law permitted the practice. A leading U.S. Muslim jurist from the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) said it was an “honor” in Islam. A marabout — a Muslim holy man — was arrested in France for having it done on his daughters.
Why do these Muslim clerics and ascetics misunderstand what is so clear to Linda Sarsour? In the UK, there were 5,500 cases of FGM in 2016 alone. It is commonly claimed to be an East African problem, but 93% of Muslim women in Malaysia have suffered this procedure, and it is common in Indonesia.
It is certain to become increasingly common in the United States.

Sheikh uses plastic animals prove validity of Quran



Egyptian Intellectual Sharif Farouk Walks out of Studio during Debate on Atheism and Islam, TV Host Apologizes for “Pointless” Show
Egyptian intellectual Sharif Farouk clashed with Islamist Muhammad Hamouda during a discussion about Islam and atheism. Sheikh Hamouda claimed that if Farouk had an automatic gun, he would grab it and “wipe out” all the religious people. Later, the sheikh produced several plastic animal figures to demonstrate the veracity of the Quran. Towards the end of the show, Farouk walked out of the studio, as the TV host apologized for having held such a “pointless” show. The show aired on the Egyptian Al-Seha Wal-Jamal TV on January 28.

Med fribiljett till paradiset

Israelkommentar · Publicerad 00:01, 19 apr 2017
...
När exempelvis den palestinska fembarnsmamman Amani Husni Sabatin blev ertappad i en utomäktenskaplig relation, insåg hon att hennes dagar var räknade, att hennes man eller någon i hennes egen släkt skulle döda henne för att upprätta familjens "heder”. Genast satte hon sig därför bakom ratten i familjens bil och körde tills hon såg några israeliska soldater vid vägkanten. Lyckligtvis skadades bara en soldat lindrigt när hon försökte köra över dem, och precis som hon hade hoppats sköts hon till döds. Genast blev hon martyrförklarad av den palestinska myndigheten, medan hennes äktenskapsbrott tyst sopades under mattan.
När nu västvärlden har börjat drabbas av samma sorts terroristattacker som Israel har en lång och smärtsam erfarenhet av, kan man notera en tydlig tendens bland många opinionsbildare att vilja betona förövarnas mentala ohälsa eller andra personliga problem. Detta gör det nämligen möjligt att undvika den för många obekväma diskussionen om islams roll i motivbilden. Jihadisten förvandlas till en "galenpanna” och fokus flyttas från islamistisk terrorism till bristerna inom psykiatrin.
Precis som i Israel är det förstås fullt möjligt, rent av troligt, att många som utför terroristattacker i västvärlden också lider av psykiska problem. Men samtidigt finns det ju väldigt, väldigt,väldigt många människor i västvärlden som lider av psykiska problem som inte utför terroristattacker. Den utlösande faktorn kan därför inte rimligtvis sägas vara den mentala ohälsan eller de känslomässiga problemen, utan det faktum att förövarnas ideologiska föreställningsvärld erbjuder en mycket enkel lösning på alla dessa problem: Den som offrar sitt liv i kampen mot islams fiender får en fribiljett till paradiset.
Israel visar att det är fullt möjligt att vara medveten om att de som väljer att utföra terroristattacker ibland lider av mental ohälsa, och samtidigt inse att detta i sig inte räcker som förklaring. Roten till det onda är och förblir den islamistiska ideologin som präglar förövarnas omgivning.

Reminder: Why All The Jihadi Attacks? Why Now? - Christopher W. Holton, Terror Trends Bulletin

https://terrortrendsbulletin.com/2017/04/21/reminder-why-all-the-jihadi-attacks-why-now/

Reminder: Why All The Jihadi Attacks? Why Now?

by Christopher W. Holton

Way back in February of 1998, Osama Bin Laden declared a Jihad against Jews and Crusaders in a written document entitled the “World Islamic Front Statement.”
In that document he specifically stated:
The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies — civilians and military — is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it
Despite this, with just a few notable exceptions over the years, few Muslims answered Bin Laden’s call to kill Americans.

Bin Laden was of course killed by U.S. Special Operations forces in May 2011.
Since then, we have seen many more attacks here in the U.S.

Why? If Osama Bin Laden was not able to inspire Muslims to attack and kill Americans, why are we seeing so many such attacks in recent years? Such as:

• The 15 April 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.
• The Orlando night club massacre on 12 June 2016.
• The San Bernardino massacre on 2 December 2015
• The Chattanooga massacre on 16 July 2015
• The failed Garland, Texas attack on 3 May 2015.
• The Queens, New York hatchet attack on police officers standing on a street corner on 23 October 2014.
• The Philadelphia attack on a police officer sitting in his squad car on 7 January 2016
• The Moore, Oklahoma beheading of a grandmother at the hands of a Muslim co-worker on 26 September 2014
• The 28 November 2016 terrorist vehicle attack on Ohio State University campus.
• The September 17-19 2016 bombings in New York and New Jersey.
• The Fresno, California shooting on 18 April 2017.

These are just a few of the incidents in recent years, here in the United States, that have, unfortunately, been categorized as “lone wolf” terrorist attacks by our recalcitrant news media.
In fact, the term “lone wolf” does not exist in Islamic doctrine. What DOES exist in Islamic doctrine is the fact that Jihad is an individual as well as a collective obligation.

What we are seeing are in fact individual acts of Jihad–acts of war, not criminal acts. We continue to deny this at our peril. There is a doctrinal basis for the enemy that is waging war against us. This form of warfare does not require formal ties between fighters or units (organizations) waging the war.

The concept of Jihad being an individual obligation is longstanding and has its basis in mainstream Islamic law (Shariah). We can see this from a widely-read and used text of Shariah sold annually at the convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the largest Muslim organization in the United States, which was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing prosecution in U.S. history: the U.S. v the Holy Land Foundation. In that trial, ISNA was identified as a Muslim Brotherhood front group. Interestingly, ISNA’s Canadian wing was shut down in 2013 for funneling money to a Jihadist terrorist group in Kashmir.

The name of the Shariah text is A Summary of Islamic Jurisprudence by Dr. Salih Al-Fawzan and published by Al-Maiman Publishing House in Saudi Arabia. Al-Fawzan is a member of the Board of 
Senior Ulema in Saudi Arabia and also a member of the Permanent Committee for Fatwa and Research in the kingdom.
IMG_0137
Volume One of this work has a chapter devoted to Jihad. On page 473, the basis in Shariah for individual Jihad is explained in detail and reveals for us why we are seeing this escalation of attacks:
For a Muslim, there are certain cases in which jihad is an individual duty:
1) When a Muslim is present at the battlefield, it is obligatory for him to fight and he is prohibited to leave the battlefield and flee.
2) When enemies attack a Muslim country…
3) When a Muslim is needed to help his fellow Muslims fight their enemies.
4) When a Muslim is called by the ruler (or the one in authority) to fight in the Cause of Allah, for the Prophet (PBUH) said:
Whenever you are called for fighting in the cause of Allah, you should go immediately.

 As you can see, these four circumstances are quite broad and all could be interpreted as existing right now. But numbers 2, 3 and 4 are particularly relevant right now and serve as the doctrinal basis for why Muslims have suddenly begun rising up in violent Jihad in the West:
• The Islamic State has called on Muslims to wage Jihad because the Islamic State is under attack. This applies to 2 and 3 above.
• Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self-proclaimed caliph of the Islamic State has issued calls on Muslims in the West to rise up in Jihad. This applies to 4 above and is the key difference between the days of Bin Laden and today.
Bin Laden may have been admired by many Muslims, but he never declared himself as a Caliph and his calls for Jihad were mostly ignored. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s calls are being answered because he has declared himself as the Caliph and many Muslims recognize him as such. That is why were are seeing acts of individual Jihad that we mostly did not see before.
And that is why the U.S. and the West cannot tolerate the existence of the Islamic State over the long-term. It has become the flame attracting moths. It will only gain more legitimacy and strength if it is allowed to persist. In short, it must be destroyed.

HERE ARE TWO IMPORTANT PASSAGES THAT APPLY TO WHAT WE ARE SEEING TODAY. The news media and our elected officials seem to take comfort when an attacker was “merely inspired” by the Islamic State (ISIS) and were not directed by the Islamic State. The opposite should actually be the case, as reflected by the two remaining passages below from two important Jihadi ideologues:
Individual jihad has recurred throughout Islamic history. In the time of the Crusades…groups of mujahideen responded to the crisis. Many isolated expeditions and groups carried out the obligation of jihad.
Individual jihad using the method of urban or rural guerilla warfare is the foundation for sapping the enemy and bringing him to a state of collapse and withdrawal. It will pave the way for the desired strategic goal.
What mandates these methods as a strategic opinion is the imbalance of forces between the resistance and the large invading alliance of unbelievers, apostates and hypocrites.
We fight them for the sake of incidents to cause political pressure and psychological collapse, so that they leave our lands. Carrying out a small operation every month against the enemy will have more of an impact on him than a big operation every year or two.
Toward a New Strategy in Resisting the Occupier
Muhammad Khalil al-Hakaymah
Al Qaeda Chief of External Operations
Killed by US air strike in Pakistan in 2008
Successful jihad will only happen within an ummah [Islamic nation or community] in which the fighting creed is firmly established and clarified. This must happen in order to attain the “Revolutionary Jihadist Climate” that will spontaneously give rise to instruments of resistance.
Violent jihad is as an individual duty obligatory upon every Muslim. All the ulema have said this…”
The Call to Global Islamic Resistance
Abu Musab al-Suri
Al Qaeda propagandist
Captured in Pakistan 2005
These two passages reflect what we are seeing today, not just in the USA, but even more so in Europe, as evidenced by the March 2017 London parliament shooting and the 20 April 2017 police shooting on the Champs Elysees.

Over a decade ago Al-Hakaymah called for frequent, small-scale attacks rather than big 9/11 type attacks. What we are seeing today was clearly part of the Jihadists’ plans.
Again, well over a decade ago, Al-Suri foresaw an environment in which individual Jihadis would rise up spontaneously in resistance without specific direction and planning from a higher, central authority. Again, that is clearly what we are seeing today.

This “Revolutionary Jihadist Climate” spontaneously giving rise to instruments of resistance is NOT something to take comfort in at all. It is problematic for law enforcement and the intelligence community and dangerous for Americans.

A terrorist cell connected directly in some way to Al Qaeda leadership can be detected, infiltrated and taken down as it communicates with and receives orders from commanders overseas. But individual Jihadis or Jihadi couples who have the intention of carrying out attacks are much more difficult to detect and are very nearly impossible to infiltrate.

The “Revolutionary Jihadist Climate” spontaneously giving rise to instruments of resistance is a relatively new, dangerous phase in the global Jihadist movement.

MARINE LE PEN EFTER TERRORDÅD: “STÄNG GRÄNSERNA OCH UTVISA SÄKERHETSHOT OMEDELBART”

Islamistisk terror slog till igen i Paris, bara veckor efter det senaste dådet i Stockholm. Alla ytterligare debatter inför söndagens franska presidentval är inställda. Marine Le Pen kräver omedelbart stängda gränser, återinförda gränskontroller och utvisning av utlänningar som varit utredda av säkerhetstjänsten.

...

Presidentkampanjens sista skälvande vecka har haft ännu en allvarlig incident. I tisdags arresterades två män i den mångkulturella staden Marseille, misstänkta för att ha planerat en attack på en av presidentkandidaterna (länk).

Migrationsfrågan har präglat hela kampanjen och Marine Le Pen, har varit tydligt kritisk mot islamistisk terrorism särskilt de senaste veckorna. Bland annat vill hon förbjuda den salafistiska ideologin, utvisa hatpredikanter och stänga deras moskéer.


Men även konservative Francois Fillon har haft ett tufft tonläge i frågan och höll även han en presskonferens under fredagen där han beskrev att Frankrike är i krig.
