That Old Time Religion

28th August 2015

Richard Fernandez turns over a rock.

They come from Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Kosovo. Forth they stream from Bangladesh and the Muslim parts of Burma. They sail past Indonesia and Malaysia toward the hell-hole of Australia. A huge number are making their way overland through Macedonia and Serbia and are even now burrowing under the frontier wire of Hungary. On they come in boats from Libya, South Sudan, Eritrea and Nigeria, pausing only to catch their breath in Greece, Italy and France before going onward to the Promised Land. Not Israel in this case but Great Britain and Germany.

They come from everywhere, even in Europe masses of people have fled the fighting in Ukraine, half a million from Donetsk alone.  They are swarming everywhere.  The director of Human Rights Watch asks, ‘why does nobody care’ not just about the masses of refugees themselves the carnage they are fleeing from?  After all, the West cared enough once so what changed in the interim?

What changed in the interval was Western confidence in the normativeness of its values and its ability to intervene in global events. The political delegitimization of Operation Iraqi Freedom added to the disappointment in the Arab Spring has pretty much soured the West on anything except watching the tragedy passively unfold. The “skepticism about America’s right, power and duty to lead the world”, the logical consequence of ‘no more Vietnams’, ‘no more Iraqs’  is no mas, period.

This has set the stage for a self-sustaining chain reaction in failing states.  For example, thousands of Pakistani Christians are stuck in Thailand, persecuted at home and unwelcome abroad; even in the West, perhaps especially in the West.  Refugees often carry with them the last, best hope of their failing countries. They are too frequently the repository of the its greatest human capital, the seed corn of lands plagued by the new locusts.

Living Under Anarcho-Tyranny

28th August 2015

Read it.

On August 21, 2015, what could have become yet another Jihadist massacre of Europeans was prevented at the very last second. Not by the country’s authorities, but by random travelers. An armed militant Muslim on a train to France was overpowered by some of the male passengers, among them several unarmed American soldiers, just before he could start shooting people. Ayoub El Khazzani, a Moroccan national, has been charged with attempted murder of a terrorist nature. The police believe had carefully planned a terror attack.

Mr. Khazzani was known to the security services prior to this incident. Yet they still did not manage to stop him. He was able to move freely in the EU between different Western European countries. He joins the rising number of Muslim terrorists who were able, or in his case nearly able, to carry out terror attacks, despite already being on terrorist watch lists. Why? Because there are just too many Jihadists out there. The authorities cannot stop them all. French authorities are concerned about a truly spectacular Islamic terror attack, perhaps on the scale of the September 11 attacks in the USA in 2001.

UK Islamist Leader Hamza Tzortzis Exposed on Ashley Madison List

A well-known British Islamist preacher, Hamza Tzortzis, has turned up on the Ashley Madison user list that was leaked by hackers earlier this week, according to his own Facebook page.

Tzortzis, who is a prominent member of the Islamic Education and Research Academy, which tours British universities, posted yesterday that he had been tipped off that his details were included in the leak, but he denied ever using the extramarital dating service.

Of course he didn’t. MRDA.

Slaves as a Fringe Benefit

25th August 2015

Read it.

Although ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) publicized an auction for slaves (captured non-Moslem women and children) in June they have since replaced that with a printed price list. Young children are the most expensive going for up to $200 each. Adolescent girls cost about $125 and adult women go for under a hundred dollars. The catch here is the buyers are restricted to ISIL gunmen, as something of a fringe benefit. The sales are made with the understanding that the buyer can resell their slave for whatever they can get. It is also understood that ISIL slave owners can try to arrange for families to ransom the slaves for whatever the owner can get (usually several thousand dollars each). The June 2015 slave auction in eastern Syria sold 42 Yazidi women who were offered to ISIL men for between $500 and $2,000. So being allowed to buy a slave is quite a lucrative fringe benefit.

Since the slaves were not Moslem they could not be married so their owners would use them for sex, housekeeping or whatever. ISIL was depending on Moslem scripture to justify this. Actually, ISIL is not alone as there is still a lot of slavery in the Islamic world. There is also a lot of hatred for non-Moslems especially those considered pagans. ISIL considers the Yazidis pagans but will enslave Christians as well. It was with Yazidis that ISIL reintroduced slavery (of non-Moslems, especially “pagans” like Yazidis) into their new Islamic State. This may appall many in the West and to placate foreigners most Arab nations have outlawed slavery, despite the fact that it still exists and continues to exist with much local support.

Will Quebec Join the Ummah?

23rd August 2015

Read it.

A crucially important piece of legislation, Bill 59, is currently being considered by the provincial Assembly in Quebec. It isn’t getting much attention outside of Canada, but if it passes, it will effectively empower the Quebec Human Rights Commission to implement UN Resolution 16/18 in the province. At that point Quebec will fall into line with a number of Western European countries, who have already passed laws that enforce sharia rules against Islamic blasphemy.

It remains unclear whether there was a political motive to the gunman’s actions.

ISIS: Militants Destroy Ancient Monastery in Syria Founded More Than 1,500 Years Ago

Isis have demolished an ancient monastery founded more than 1,500 years ago in central Syria Friday near a town where the extremists abducted dozens of Christians earlier this month, activists and a Christian priest said.

The extremist group posted photos on social media Friday showing bulldozers destroying the Saint Elian Monastery near the town of Qaryatain, which Isis captured in early August.

Slovakia Will Only Accept Christian Migrants

Slovakia has announced it will only accept Christian migrants when it takes in Syrian refugees under an EU relocation plan.

Interior Ministry spokesman Ivan Metik said the Eastern European nation will accept 200 Christian migrants from camps in Turkey, Italy and Greece, as Muslim migrants would not integrate as easily into Slovakia’s predominantly Christian population.

There are a lot of Muslim countries in the world — time for them to step up to the plate, seems like.

Oil Wars

20th August 2015

Read it.

Shortly after the Antiplanner commented on low oil prices last April, the Saudis admitted that their goal in flooding the market with oil was to drive out high-cost producers such as owners of shale-oil and off-shore wells. Now it appears that this policy has backfired on the Saudis, as their economy is hurting from the low oil prices while the shale industry continues to produce oil.

The problem for the Saudis, says one analyst, is that low prices might hurt high-cost producers, but the shale frackers “are mostly mid-cost.” thanks partly to new technologies. This means that, once they’ve made the initial investment in drilling and fracking, they can continue to extract oil, covering their operating costs even when prices are low and won’t be put out of business by a temporary surge in production in the Mideast.

Meanwhile, the Saudi government has seen its revenues decline by more than 30 percent. This has led Standard & Poors to downgrade Saudi credit ratings, saying that the country’s economy is “undiversified and vulnerable to a steep and sustained decline in oil prices.”

In the Bad Old Days, the oil under Saudi Arabia would belong to various European governments, and the Saudis would be wandering the desert on camels rather than buying up most of London and Paris. Which arrangement is preferable is left as an exercise for the reader.

ISIS Beheads 82-Year-Old Archaeologist in Palmyra, Syrian Official Says

19th August 2015

Read it.

ISIS militants have beheaded an 82-year-old archaeologist who had been in charge of overseeing the ancient site at Palmyra in Syria, a government official said Tuesday.

Syrian state antiquities chief Maamoun Abdulkarim told Reuters that the family of Khaled Asaad had informed Abdulkarim that Asaad had been beheaded earlier in the day and his body hanged from a column in the town’s main square.

Asaad’s death was also reported by the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The Observatory, which has a network of activists on the ground in Syria, said dozens of people gathered to witness the killing.

Terrorist, Torturer, Turncoat Make Short List T=to Succeed Palestinian Chief Abbas

18th August 2015

Read it.

The age and flagging popularity of Mahmoud Abbas have spurred speculation the Palestinian Authority president is preparing to step down, and the short list of likely successors is topped by a convicted terrorist serving life in an Israeli prison.

They don’t have much of anybody in their leadership who doesn’t fit one of those categories.

Abbas was originally elected to serve a four-year term, but no elections have been held since he took power and he rules by decree. His tenure has been marked by accusations of cronyism and corruption, and in recent months there has been open criticism of the wealthy lifestyle led by members of his family, presumably on the dime of international donors who prop up the Palestinian state.

How special.

In theory, the PA represents Palestinians in both Gaza and the West Bank, but the two territories are effectively governed separately. An exit by Abbas could theoretically clear the way for a successor sympathetic to Hamas, which runs Gaza, to take control of both territories.

Something to look forward to.

ISIS Enshrines a Theology of Rape

14th August 2015

Read it.

In the moments before he raped the 12-year-old girl, the Islamic State fighter took the time to explain that what he was about to do was not a sin. Because the preteen girl practiced a religion other than Islam, the Quran not only gave him the right to rape her — it condoned and encouraged it, he insisted.

He bound her hands and gagged her. Then he knelt beside the bed and prostrated himself in prayer before getting on top of her.

When it was over, he knelt to pray again, bookending the rape with acts of religious devotion.

“I kept telling him it hurts — please stop,” said the girl, whose body is so small an adult could circle her waist with two hands. “He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God,” she said in an interview alongside her family in a refugee camp here, to which she escaped after 11 months of captivity.

Some things are too gross even for the New York Times.

Pentagon Officials Believe ISIS Used Chemical Weapons Against Kurds in Iraq

Hey, it’s not as if the concept of War Crimes means anything to militant Islam. (cf. Banu Qurayza)

This is the first reported incident of ISIS using chemical weapons since the terror group came to prominence last year. Senior U.S. officials told The Wall Street Journal that ISIS may have obtained the mustard gas in Syria, whose Damascus government admitted to having large stockpiles of the chemical when it agreed to give up its chemical weapons arsenal in 2013. Another U.S. official left open the possibility that ISIS had taken the mustard gas from old weapons stockpiles that belonged to former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein and weren’t destroyed.

Europe Paralyzed as Migrant Deaths Mount

7th August 2015

Read it.

The latest tragedy in the Mediterranean, where a fishing ship smuggling possibly as many as 600 people capsized on Wednesday with about 200 presumed dead, is a portrait in miniature of the mess of policy mistakes, unintended consequences, and human folly that’s turning the Mare Nostrum into a graveyard. (A mark of how bad things are: 200 deaths can be considered “a portrait in miniature”.)

According to the WSJ, many of those aboard the ship came from Syria. For four years, the West has refused and/or been unable to do anything about the plight of that war-torn country, and no wonder people are fleeing it. Meanwhile, the port of immediate departure was in Libya, where the West—at the urging of many European nations—did intervene, but without any intention to stick around or plan to deal with the aftermath. Even as it becomes increasingly clear that Libya’s disorder is at the root of the current immigration crisis, Europe has not the foggiest clue how to fix things there.

Islamic State Circulates Sex Slave Price List

5th August 2015

Read it.

A senior United Nations official says Islamic State is circulating a slave price list for captured women and children, and that the group’s ongoing appeal and barbarity pose an unprecedented challenge.

The official, Zainab Bangura, said that on a trip to Iraq in April she was given a copy of an Islamic State pamphlet, which included the list, showing that captured children as young as one fetch the highest price. The bidders include both the group’s own fighters and wealthy Middle Easterners.

And why not? Islam has no problem with slavery. Not a bit. They were prime movers in the slave trade (Saudi Arabia didn’t formally ban slavery until 1962), which makes the popularity of Islam among black Americans so ironically tragic.

Ilford MP Says: Shut Down Gates of Vienna!

2nd August 2015

Read it.

Ilford is the culturally enriched suburb of London where the firebrand preacher Anjem Choudary once had a crash pad. It is also the latest British municipality to feature a local media report in which members of parliament call for the director of public prosecutions to investigate and shut down Gates of Vienna.

For those who haven’t been glued to their sets, Gates of Vienna is located in Virginia. Not sure what a British ‘director of public prosecutions’ (what a great IngSoc name!) is going to do about that. Maybe phone Barack Hussein Obama and bitch him out? If so, he’ll have to stand it line.

The trickle-down effect from the Hate Not Hope “report” is interesting. It starts at The Independent — which, as far as I can tell, never published anything, despite their threatened “deadline” — then moves to The Guardian. From there it travels down the journalistic food chain to the locals, first Bradford, and now Ilford. Where next? There are three remaining MPs who want to bung us in chokey, so maybe their local papers will be next.

Britain is a year or two further down the road to dystopia than we are, so watching what goes on there is a good preview of what Democrites will be pushing over on this side of Mother Nature’s Immigration Fence.

Turkey says that it, together with the U.S., wants an IS-free zone in northern Syria. That is fine. But who will fill the vacuum in areas cleared of IS? That is an extremely important question Turkey’s American allies should think about with extreme care. Turkey simply finds joining the international campaign against IS an opportunity to install pro-Sunni Islamist rule in areas now controlled by IS.

Islamic radicals say they want to recover Spain, which Muslims once ruled. Well, Turkey once ruled Syria, and not that long ago, either.

It means cutting throats, beheading people, suicide bombings on crowded trains, and all those other lovely activities that keep Islam in the daily headlines. Most people aren’t fooled by the apologists’ attempt to cleanse the word of its traditional Islamic meaning.

How Turkey’s Fight Against ISIS Advances Its War Against the Kurds

30th July 2015

Read it.

The Kurdish Workers’ Party, known as the PKK, was locked in a bloody war with the Turkish state from the mid-1980s until 2013. The cease-fire has, for all intents and purposes, been destroyed. Turkey is battling both ISIS and the PKK under the guise of fighting terrorism. Yet Turkish attempts to conflate ISIS and the PKK–even in the wake of the suicide bombing in a Kurdish border town that killed 32 young people–effectively ask people to overlook some salient facts.

Attempts to conflate Kurdish resistance with ISIS are designed to play on old, deeply rooted Turkish fears. A declaration of a state of emergency in Turkey would give the Justice and Development Party (or AKP), which lost its parliamentary majority in June elections, more flexibility to crack down on political opponents such as the Kurdish majority People’s Democratic Party. More than 1,300 people have been detained recently under the guise of cracking down on domestic PKK and ISIS elements in Turkey.

Canadian Converts to Islam Planned to Kill Jewish Children

29th July 2015

Read it.

John Nuttall told an undercover officer that his wife, Amanda Korody, believed that “grown-up Jews” go to “eternal hell” and that she would be doing Jewish children a favor by killing them and reaching paradise, police records revealed in British Columbia’s Supreme Court show.

“I asked Nuttall how he thinks he will have access to Jewish kids and he said [he and his wife] were both white and could pass for Jewish…They will be regulars in the synagogue. They will gain the trust of everybody. And once they have everything they will get enough guns and ammo to go ahead with their mission,” read the March 2013 record from an undercover RCMP officer.

Just think of it as REALLY late-term abortions.

We’ll See You in Paris

24th July 2015

Read it. And watch the video.

The Islamic State has released yet another grotesquely violent execution video. This one is directed at a French-speaking audience, and after he shoots his captive, the executioner promises that there will be corpses in the streets of Paris if the French do not submit to Islam.

I’m certain that he’s correct; there will be corpses in the streets of Paris. The question is: Whose? It is, after all, not that many generations since the French proved themselves adept at creating corpses with great efficiency…

‘ The Mystery of ISIS’

24th July 2015

Read it. Feel free to laugh.

The problem, however, lies not in chronicling the successes of the movement, but in explaining how something so improbable became possible. The explanations so often given for its rise—the anger of Sunni communities, the logistical support provided by other states and groups, the movement’s social media campaigns, its leadership, its tactics, its governance, its revenue streams, and its ability to attract tens of thousands of foreign fighters—fall far short of a convincing theory of the movement’s success.

Oh, maybe it’s the whole Koran/Mohammed/Jihad business. Naw, that couldn’t be it.

But this simply raises the more fundamental question of why the movement’s ideology and actions—however slickly produced and communicated—have had popular appeal in the first place.

Perhaps it’s adherents read the Koran and took it seriously. Naw, that couldn’t be it.

The clearest evidence that we do not understand this phenomenon is our consistent inability to predict—still less control—these developments. Who predicted that Zarqawi would grow in strength after the US destroyed his training camps in 2001? It seemed unlikely to almost everyone that the movement would regroup so quickly after his death in 2006, or again after the surge in 2007. We now know more and more facts about the movement and its members, but this did not prevent most analysts from believing as recently as two months ago that the defeats in Kobane and Tikrit had tipped the scales against the movement, and that it was unlikely to take Ramadi. We are missing something.

Yeah – it’s called ‘Islam’. (Make you wonder what ‘we’ he’s talking about.)

The author has wide experience in the Middle East and was formerly an official of a NATO country.

Oh, well, then, that explains it.

We hide this from ourselves with theories and concepts that do not bear deep examination. And we will not remedy this simply through the accumulation of more facts. It is not clear whether our culture can ever develop sufficient knowledge, rigor, imagination, and humility to grasp the phenomenon of ISIS. But for now, we should admit that we are not only horrified but baffled.

‘Baffled?’ Try ‘clueless’. Try ‘dumber than a box of rocks’. Try ‘invincibly ignorant’.

Swedish Nationalists Plan a Gay Pride March Through a Muslim Area, Hoping for Trouble

23rd July 2015

Read it.

I haven’t seen this reported in the press anywhere, but in Sweden the right-wing nationalist Sweden Democrats are staging a gay pride march featuring men kissing each other. Why?

Simple: the July 29 march will pass through areas of northern Stockholm where Muslims make up a majority of the population – 75 per cent, according to some accounts. So there will be trouble.

Politics does indeed make strange bedfellows, multi-pun intended.

“They Cannot Stay in Italy Because There is no Work”

21st July 2015

Read it.

Last week residents of the Italian town of Quinto di Treviso, near Treviso, protested angrily about the resettling of immigrants in their neighborhoods and residences. After two days of protests, the town’s mayor ordered the unwanted migrants moved elsewhere.

They didn’t come for work, they came for benefits; that’s why they’re desperate to get to Britain.

UK Government to Take Firmer Stance on Muslims Who Fail to Denounce Jihadis

19th July 2015

Read it.

In a speech to be delivered to an audience of Muslim men and women in Birmingham, David Cameron is expected to announce that only those in the Muslim community willing to take a stand against jihadist violence will be supported and those who “walk up to the border of illegality” will be denounced.

And if you believe that one, he’ll tell you another one.
