Geopolitics of Islam on the West: France, Turkey, Futility. Links 1 on May 6 – 2016

1, Turkey clearly headed for dictatorship even by admission of Erdogan

(One begins to see another geopolitical role of Islam in the region, and perhaps now in the West as well. Leaders use Islam and its activists to achieve power, and then use containment of that same Islamic barbarity as the reason to get Western and other foreign non-Islamic leaders to support them as dictator. This is in the nascent stages with Erdogan but its moving into focus. Clearly was true of Ghaddaffi, and the Saudi monarchy as well)

Erdo?an gets his wish

“Erdogan once said that democracy, for him, is a bus ride … ‘once I get to my stop, I’m getting off’ ”

Jordan’s King Abdullah recalling a conversation with the Turkish President

Tonight is H?drellez in Turkey, celebrating spring and the day on which the Prophets al-Khidr and Elijah.

Traditionally wishes come true today and it would seem that President Erdo?an’s wish for an executive Presidency has come one step closer to reality with the resignation of Prime Minister Davuto?lu.

When we downgraded Turkey in last week’s Governments and Markets update, it was primarily due to negative shifts in governance as the pressure to move to a Presidential system and crack down on the Kurds increased. We weren’t sure of the timing of these events, although key factors like the HDP being effectively banned and the President needing to assert control over more elements of the government seemed certain.

2. Obama admin draws another red line, says Syria better start removing Assad by Aug. 1

(Some symmetry there. Much of the world feels that way about Obama)

Secretary of State John Kerry just gave Syria a hard deadline for starting the political transition to get rid of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad: Aug. 1.

Kerry told reporters Tuesday that if Syria doesn’t begin the process of removing Assad by Aug. 1, there will be serious consequences, the Associated Press reports.

“If Assad does not adhere to this, there will clearly be repercussions,” Kerry said. “One of them may be the total destruction of the cease-fire and then go back to war. I don’t think Russia wants that. I don’t think Assad is going to benefit from that. There may be even other repercussions being discussed. That is for the future.”

Kerry emphasized opposition rebels will never put up with Assad staying in power.

“If Assad’s strategy is to somehow think he’s going to just carve out Aleppo and carve out a section of the country, I got news for you and for him: This war doesn’t end,” Kerry said. “As long as Assad is there, the opposition is not going to stop fighting.”

3. Islamic Council scoping sites for grand mosque in central Melbourne

(Oh goodie! Clap clap. Perhaps some Ozzie patriots can scope nearby sites for a ham and beer place)

The Islamic Council of Victoria is searching for a site for a grand mosque in central Melbourne to cater for growing demand.

Key points:

  • Demand for prayer facilities in Melbourne outstripping supply
  • Islamic Council wants mosque in Hoddle Street grid or Docklands
  • It hopes to have something in the ground in five to 10 years

The council’s president, Byram Aktepe, said the current facilities needed to be expanded.

“At the moment, the city mosque, which started with about 300 people praying on one floor, has grown to two services being prayed over three floors. So we’re talking about 2,000 people praying there,” he told 774 ABC Melbourne’s Jon Faine.

Mr Aktepe said the new mosque could be housed in an existing city building, or may stand alone.

It would ideally be located within in the Hoddle Street grid or in the Docklands to ensure accessibility, he added.

4. Attack victim claims police told her to dye hair

(If this story is accurate, it signals a tectonic level shift in the cultural/legal system in this nation. It means the onus has shifted from the guilt of the person who did a formerly criminal act, to the one who tempted that act to be done. To remove this from the sexual arena for the moment, it is no different than telling a wealthy person not to drive a nice car or wear an expensive watch as anything that happens to him as a result is his fault. This is no small shift. While vestigial components of Western judicial thought remain, they seem to be enforced mostly on the indigenous population of the Western nations and for the benefit of the new scheme of things)

The incident happened when the young woman, identified only by her first name Sabina, who lives in the capital Vienna had been waiting for a train on the S6 line at the city’s main Westbahnhof station.

The 20-year-old, who was hospitalised after the attack by four men in which she was beaten and robbed, told Heute newspaper: “I felt so helpless.”

“I had been standing on the platform waiting for the train when a man came up to me and spoke to me in a foreign language. He then started putting his hands through my hair and made it clear that in his cultural background there were hardly any blonde women. I told him to go away, and for a short while he really did go away.”

“But it was only to get his pals and a bit later he came back with three others. They stole my handbag and my cards.”

[…] And her distress had turned to anger when police had told her that she should change her hair colour and should not have been travelling alone after 8pm on public transport.

Muslim women should not wear trousers, leave the house without their husband’s permission or use Facebook, according to controversial rules published by British mosques.

The Green Lane Masjid in Birmingham said that women were not allowed to wear trousers, even in front of their husbands, while the Central Masjid of Blackburn called Facebook a ‘sin’ and an ‘evil’.

One Islamic organisation also stated that Muslim women must not leave the house without their husband’s permission.

The controversial ruling was published this week by the Blackburn Muslim Association, an affiliate member of the MCB, telling women that they should not travel more than 48 miles without a male chaperone. A document written by a mufti at the Croydon Mosque and Islamic Centre, entitled ‘Advice for the husband and wife’, also stated: ‘A woman should seek her husband’s permission when leaving the house and should not do so without his knowledge.’

7. On the same theme, Paris: French Muslim sent home from school over long skirt

The 16-year-old was sent home this week after her headmaster took a dislike to her skirt.
The skirt – popular among some Muslim women who cover their whole body – reportedly reached beyond her knees and down to her sneakers, reported the Nouvel Obs newspaper.
The headmaster of the Seine-et-Marne school, in the outer suburbs of Paris, reportedly deemed that the skirt “conspicuously” showed religious affiliation, which is banned in schools by France’s strict secularity laws.
A day after his prime minister resigned, Turkey’s president has spoken out against the EU’s demands for changes to terror laws. He also said Turkey urgently needs a new constitution and a presidential system.

In a speech broadcast live on television, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan drew particular attention to one of the EU requirements for Turkish citizens to be allowed visa-free travel into the Schengen area.

Erdogan said Turkey would not reform its anti-terrorism legislation for the sake of visa-free travel for its citizens to Europe.

There are five issues left out of an original list of 72 from the EU for Turkey to address. The most contentious is “revising the legislation and practices on terrorism in line with European standards.”

“We will go our way; you go yours,” Erdogan said, addressing an inauguration ceremony in Istanbul on Friday. “The EU is telling us to change our law on combating terrorism. [They] are allowing terrorists to raise tents and then [they] come with requirements.”

Erdogan was referring to a tent raised by supporters of the outlawed PKK near the European Council building in Brussels.

Thank you M., Wrath of Khan, Pym Purnell, Richard, Kathy, Maria J., and many more. 
Awareness of our issue is growing. But with it is also greater polarization.
This cannot end well.

David Cameron will put curbing Islamic extremism at the heart of the Queen’s Speech amid concerns about his legacy.

The Prime Minister will introduce an Extremism Bill later this month which will include measures to ban organisations, gag individuals and close down premises used to ‘promote hatred’.

The crackdown will begin with the launch of an independent review of how Sharia courts are operating in Britain, according to the Times.

Home Secretary Theresa May is expected to announce the inquiry in the next fortnight.

(The time really has come for revolution against these dictators)

Prime Ministers must stop listening so much to their voters and instead act as “full time Europeans”, according to Jean-Claude Juncker.

Elected leaders are making life “difficult” because they spend too much time thinking about what they can get out of EU and kowtowing to public opinion, rather than working on “historic” projects such as the Euro, he said.

The president of the European Commission ridiculed British leaders for acting on “national reflexes” and telling voters they had successfully defended the country’s national interest in post-summit press conferences, rather than “speaking over Europe in the proper way”.

He said: “I remember the highly exciting period when we were preparing the Maastricht treaty, and step by step we were moving in the direction of the single currency… It was a shared sentiment of foreign ministers and Prime Ministers that we were in charge of a big piece of history. This has totally gone.”

EU Police and Military Force Rehearses for Civil War in Germany

by Stefan Schubert
May 2, 2016

Screened from public view in North Rhine-Westphalia, units of European police and military have carried out a major exercise in putting down unrest and civil war-like actions. It is especially the financing of this exercise by the EU Commission that has prompted questions. The suspicion arises that EU functionaries are in the process of developing a Europe-wide anti-insurgency troop directly answerable to them.

Although a member of [the North Rhine-Westphalian] parliament repeatedly requested and finally pressed to be an observer, he was rudely repulsed. The major exercise took place two weeks ago in the Westphalian district of Weeze, with ca. 600 police and military.

New Year’s Eve Mob of Cologne

An original translation by Egri Nok:

From Express.De

Red-Green takes steps against revelations

(photo caption: The committee of inquiry holds session in the room of the CDU. Here, the Cologne police officer Peter Römers is in the witness stand).

Düsseldorf — The revelations that are unfolding about Cologne on the night of New Year’s Eve provoke unusual measures. Now the red-green government majority in parliament wants to drill down on media reports by searching for “moles” in parliament.

SPD [Social Democrats] and the Greens think there was an unlawful disclosure of documents. According to EXPRESS information, on Wednesday, the government parties [Social Democrats and Greens] have submitted a request to the committee of inquiry for consignment of a letter to Parliament President Carina Gödecke (57, SPD).

They want her to give permission for prosecution by the judiciary. SPD chairman Hans-Willi Körfges (61) wants to discuss these issues “in the non-public part of the next meeting”:

“Whoever publishes confidential documents is violating laws, and endangers clearance efforts. There is a strong impression that there is unfair play for political calculations by undue deliberate indiscretions. VS documents (VS = classified information, note of editor) must remain strictly confidential”. According to Körfges, they “partially contain personal data of victims that should not be made public.”

However, Red-Green take as examples reports of “EXPRESS” and the “Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger” of 6 and 30 April, that were not at all about “personal data of victims”.

The EXPRESS had exclusively reported, among other things, that Cologne CID officials have noted in January that there had been an attempt by the National Police Agency on New Year’s day to delete the term “rape” from an internal police report to the interior ministry — according to them on “the Ministry’s request.”

Interior Minister Ralf Jäger (55, Social Democrats) immediately “strongly” rejected this.

But this Monday, the CID officials testifying as witnesses before the committee corroborated the facts and confirmed the revelations. For Jäger, himself scheduled as a witness next Monday, these are unpleasant descriptions. SPD and the Greens apparently assume that the press reports were based on “VS only for internal use” documents, which “only members of parliament and a limited staff can view”.

“According to preliminary legal assessment, both are in any case a violation of professional secrecy according to § 353b of the Criminal Code,”, the complaint says.

Matthi Bolte (30), the chairman of the Greens in the committee of inquiry in parliament, said to the EXPRESS: “Freedom of the press is a valuable commodity. If, however, through targeted indiscretions the ability of the committee of inquiry to work is at risk, this must be clearly identified.” For a violation of official secrets, if convicted, a prison sentence of up to five years or a fine is impending.

Socialists advancing the cause of increasing human misery and destroying individual rights via Islam: Links 1 on May 5 – 2016

1, Article on the state of German and British democracy at this time.

This comprehensive article at The Rebel is worth the time it takes to watch the videos and read the translations of the Facebook posts. Get a fresh coffee and read this over. It culminates in a video of the Vice President in Germany stating things that should make all real liberal’s hair stand on end. Very reminiscent of past socialists in Germany, Italy, Russia and China.

PESHAWAR / ABBOTABAD: A woman was drugged, strangled and then her body set ablaze because she helped her friend elope, police said Thursday, announcing the arrest of 14 people in a twist on the grim practice of “honour killings”.

Ambreen, believed to be around 20 years old, was killed then burned in a Suzuki van on the orders of the village jirga (council) in Makol on April 29, District Police Officer Khurram Rasheed told AFP.

The presumptive Republican nominee first proposed the idea in the wake of the horrific California shootings in December, which left 14 dead.

The shooters were believed to be radicalised Muslims inspired by evil terror group Islamic State.

But the billionaire has not backed down on his controversial policy, saying: “They’re destroying Europe, I’m not going to let that happen to the United States.”

(The language this paper used is profoundly biased against Mr. Trump. But what caught my eye was the mustache. I suspect they airbrushed on a light colored nearly invisible Hitler mustache. I know this site is brutal for asking readers to do homework but hey, we are all in this together right? So I am asking readers to look at other pictures of Trump and see if anyone can find any other images of him with that mustache. There is some disagreement about the extent to which this is deliberate already)

More markers of a changing world order: Link 3 on May 4 – 2016

1, Gun sales rising sharply in Czech Republic

Gun sales in the Czech Republic have been rising fast in recent months, while the number of Czechs applying for licenses is also growing. Experts suggest this is a response to worries over terrorist attacks and the migrant crisis.

In the last five years over 100,000 guns have been sold in this country, bringing the total number owned by private citizens to more than 800,000, according to the newspaper Hospodá?ské noviny.

After a period of decline, applications for gun licenses saw a marked upswing in the second half of last year. Two thousand Czechs acquired permits between the start of June and the end of December, joining the 290,000 who already possessed one.

A group of Muslim women are suing a Laguna Beach, California, restaurant for allegedly kicking them out because of their religion, but the owners deny any wrongdoing or discrimination.

“I felt embarrassed, outraged and shocked by the discrimination my friends and I were subjected to,” Sara Farsakh, one of the plaintiffs named in the lawsuit filed on Monday, said, according to City News Service. “We committed no crime, we violated no policy. Our only offense to Urth Caffe was that we are group of Muslim women that stood out – visibly stood out – tarnishing their image.”

3. German satirist who mocked Erdogan says Merkel ‘filleted’ him

Judging by his smile, he must have enjoyed it

A German comedian under investigation for mocking the Turkish president has accused Angela Merkel of “filleting” him on behalf of a “despot”.

Prosecutors began investigating Jan Boehmermann after he read an obscene poem about Recep Tayyip Erdogan on TV.

Ms Merkel, the German chancellor, faced heavy criticism over the decision.

The comedian’s comments come on World Press Freedom day, amid widespread criticism of Turkey’s government over its crackdown on the country’s media.

5. Erdogan appears to be about to make a massive power grab

The relations were reportedly tense between the two statesmen amid fresh rumors suggesting that Davuto?lu may be planning to resign after saying on May 3 that he would not hesitate to “walk away from any job position,” all eyes were on a State Day meeting between him and Erdo?an on May 4. State Day meetings traditionally take place on Thursdays, but in Erdo?an’s official schedule posted in the early hours of May 4 it was seen that his regular weekly meeting with Davuto?lu was moved forward.

Erdo?an has said you “should not forget how you got to your post,” in pointed remarks before the meeting.

“There is no difference between a village head who could not win the hearts of the people in his village or neighborhood and a president who could not win the support of his people,” Erdo?an said in Ankara, addressing a group of neighborhood heads (muhtars) on May 4.

“What matters is that you should not forget how you got to your post, what you should do there and what your targets are,” he said, adding that those who win popular support are “invincible.”

Thank you Xanthippa, M., Shabnam, Wrath of Khan, Richard and many more.

Anyone familiar with the 1990s TV series Babylon 5, I would ask to write your impressions about how that series seemed to be foreshadowing these times in many ways. Perhaps not about Islam, but about a totalitarian government imposed on humanity. For those that haven’t seen the series, if you are looking for something entertaining which in some ways, drive reality as it is home to us deeper than the actual events do, maybe try watching it.

As life is irony, it seems that reading fiction as allegory can help us understand real world events better than real world events. Perhaps its because we have a natural desire to dismiss the more horrible implications of stories like the ones posted at this site and in the comments in order to protect our world view.

This has to be a natural thing. Perhaps similar to what psychologists refer to as, “The Illusory Glow”, the tendency to think of ourselves as being more socially high-status than we are or are perceived by our social circles.

But reading things like Orwell, or watching Babylon 5 may actually help us come to terms with contemporary reality as we may open ourselves up more for fiction.

Better minds than mine can weigh in on this i’m sure.

2nd crop of horrors for May 4 – 2016

1, Danish school bars Muslim students from wearing niqab

(At last! Some good news. Denmark may be the last non-Muslim, non-African nation practicing cultural self preservation on Earth now)

The school in question, VUC Lyngby, said that it changed its rules in the autumn to no longer allow students to cover their faces during class but the case only hit the media this week when a post on the school’s Facebook page led to a debate over its policies.
As the story picked up steam in the national press on Wednesday, the school went to Facebook to explain its decision.
“Free and unhindered communication requires that we can see each other’s faces. Therefore it is not allowed to cover the eyes, nose or month while participating in lessons,” a post read.
The school said that “everyone is welcome” at the institution and that while no one had been thrown out of class for wearing a niqab, the new policy will applies to all future students at the school.

The new appointment comes after protests last Wednesday, during which 30 refugees from the Coop Dimora d’Abramo refugee centre in Reggio Emilia occupied their local police headquarters complaining the food they were served was “no good” and “cooked badly”, Il Resto del Carlino reported.

In the wake of the protests, the traditional Italian trattoria which currently prepares the meals, Il Locomotore, has promised to do more to satisfy the refugees’ tastes.

3. Female suicide bomber is shot dead with a POISONED ARROW by amateur militia in Cameroon – just moments before she was set to detonate 

(This article calls them an “amateur militia group” and a “self defense group” but if they were white, they would have been called “vigilantes” and racists and leftist groups would be howling for their blood)

A local self-defence group in Cameroon killed a female suicide bomber using a poisoned arrow just moments before she was set to blow herself up.

The 40-year-old woman, who had explosives strapped to her body, had crossed over from neighboring Nigeria along with a 14-year-old girl.

Local residents shot the poisoned arrow at the woman after she failed to stop as demanded. The girl also died when she detonated her own explosives.

Kenyan police say they have foiled a “large-scale” biological attack using anthrax, by a terror group with links to so-called Islamic State (IS).

A man, his wife and another woman have been arrested. Rewards have been offered for two other men.

Police did not name the network, but said it stretches across the country and outside its borders, including to Somalia, Libya and Syria.

There was no immediate independent confirmation.

In a statement, the police said Mohammed Abdi Ali, a medical intern at a Kenyan hospital, was in charge of a “terror network… planning large-scale attacks akin to the Westgate Mall attack” in which 67 people were killed in 2013 in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi.

1, Tommy Robinson: CPS investigating possible retrial of ex-EDL leader for assault charge

Tommy Robinson could be dragged back to court to face a charge of assault after prosecutors said they may seek a retrial. The former leader of the English Defence League (EDL) had been accused of attacking a fellow inmate in 2015 while serving a sentence for mortgage fraud in Peterborough Prison.

Robinson, who now helps lead anti-Islam group Pegida UK, appeared in Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on 14 April for trial, having crowdfunded £24,000 for a legal defence from his supporters. The case against the 33-year-old, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, collapsed after Robinson’s QC successfully argued the trial could not continue because of failures in providing evidence. […] Robinson had admitted to punching the inmate concerned but claimed it was self-defence. He said a fellow prisoner warned him he was going to be attacked with a cup of boiling water after a group of Muslim inmates allegedly offered a reward for anyone who assaulted him. Robinson’s alleged assault was caught on prison CCTV.

(Tommy has confirmed all this, and his bank account has also been frozen)

(The second part after the […] is a peculiar kind of inaccuracy. In fact it was “Prison Napalm” he was threatened with, which is a supersaturated solution of boiling sugar water which sticks to the skin and causes much more profound burns, as the water can be hotter, and is considerably more viscous)

2.  French bus drivers ‘told to count migrants’

Bus drivers for the Twisto transport company in Caen, northern France, have been told to keep a tally of how many migrants ride their bus, reported the Normandy arm of the France Bleu channel.
The bus line runs from the centre of Caen to the Ouistréham ferry terminal (see map below), which in recent months has become a port to where more and more migrants are heading in an attempt to get to the UK.
The channel reported that memos had been passed among the drivers with boxes to tick marked “Number of migrants inspected” and “Number of migrants booked” (see below).
(Proving that Swedes don’t believe in Multiculturalism either)

The children, who were all living in the city of Örebro, were in danger of being brainwashed by adults in Sweden connected to the extremist group Isis, according to a municipal court ruling.

The court heard that the trio, who are all understood to have the same father, were at “very high risk” of being taken abroad by him to either be trained as soldiers or forced into marriage. It ruled that the children should be taken into care by Örebro municipality, in the first decision of its kind in the region.

The move follows a number of similar cases in Gothenburg, in which other children and young people have been placed with social services amid fears that they were also at risk of being influenced by radical groups.

The 16-year-old asylum seeker had attacked the female prison warden but chose the wrong target because she was an experienced martial arts expert and swiftly put the aggressive young man out of action.

He was then carried back to his cell by her colleagues.

The teenager is one of three who accused of the brutal sex attack in a public toilet in Vienna’s Praterstern station.

The trio were arrested after they had followed a 21-year-old student into the women’s toilets, and then used a coin to open the door lock while she was inside. They are accused of then pinning her down and raping her.

Nihad Baraka claims Dhar held her as an ISIS sex slave

Nihad Barakat revealed the warped ISIS executioner Siddhartha Dhar is now one of the most senior commanders among foreign fighters in Mosul, Islamic State’s Iraqi stronghold.

Dhar, a former bouncy castle salesman, has been touted as the new Jihadi John after appearing in a vile ISIS propaganda video earlier this year.

The 34-year-old, who was arrested six times for terrorism-related offences, reportedly used Government hand-outs to fund his trip to Syria.

Ms Barakat says he has since taken a number of Yazidi sex slaves for himself.

8. Sadiq Khan branded unfit to be London Mayor as it emerges he called moderate Muslims ‘Uncle Toms’ (video at the DM)

Labour was plunged into a fresh race row last night over an extraordinary slur against moderate Muslims by its London mayoral candidate.

Sadiq Khan was branded unfit to be London Mayor after it emerged that he had described moderate Muslim groups as ‘Uncle Toms’ – a notorious racial slur used against black people to suggest that they are subservient to whites.

The incendiary claim emerged in a 2009 interview with Iranian-backed Press TV, when Mr Khan was ‘minister for community cohesion’, in charge of Government efforts to stamp out extremism.

The revelation is a major blow for Mr Khan, who has faced a string of claims about his past dealings with Muslim extremists during the bitter campaign to succeed Boris Johnson.

Attacks in Cologne

02.05.16

Who is it who does not want “rape” to emerge?

Two police officers report in parliament that they were told to cross out the word “rape” in a first account on the sexual excesses on New Year’s Eve in Cologne. But they stood their ground.

Explosive news around the New Year’s Eve night in Cologne.

The WELT has obtained an email from the Cologne police that describes how an account of sexual attacks was to be downplayed. Source: Die Welt.

Detective chief superintendent Jürgen H. of the Cologne police remembers very well how a phone caller from the superior authority complained about the “IE account” (important event report) on sexual attacks including rape.  “Those are not rapes. Delete this word, and cancel the whole IE-report. Best, you write it over completely from the beginning,” is what the caller from the control center of the police of North Rhine-Westphalia allegedly said on January 1 2016.

His tone was “impolite” and “harsh”, and then came the explosive addendum: The deletion is a “request from the Ministry” — referring to the Interior Ministry. Superintendent H remembers that he refused to tolerate the disrespectful tone, and he pointed out to the caller that the case of the 19-year-old, who had fingers inserted into her bodily orifices, was without doubt a “rape”.

It is a key scene, about which the experienced Cologne police officer reports on Monday in front of  representatives in parliament. The investigative committee on New Year’s Eve in Cologne tries to elucidate why sexual attacks on a huge scale could take place at the turn of the year 2015/2016 in front of the main train station of the Dome [Cathedral] city, and why the police did not intervene.

Apart from administrative failure, it is also about whether facts were trivialized, and errors downplayed, or even covered up, as the opposition in parliament, CDU and FDP, have come to suspect. The described “cancellation request” from the police control center, with reference to the Ministry, would therefore have to be viewed as a political interference. After all, the contested IE account was the account that first mentioned eleven sexual assaults, including one rape, and a North African group of offenders.

The NRW Interior Ministry has previously publicly denied that such a request for cancellation had occurred and stressed that the control center did not make a phone call to the Cologne police. The Ministry bases its denial on information from the national control center for police services (LZPD), and from the situation room of the State Office of Criminal Investigations (LKA).

But the inconsistency cannot be dispelled that easily, as, in addition to Jürgen H., another witness before the investigation committee reaffirms the attempted interference. Detective Chief Superintendent Joachim H. from the Cologne police reported that he partially overheard his colleague’s phone call on New Year’s morning during shift change, and he too was wondered why someone from the control center of the LZPD would call. This was “absolutely unusual”.

What annoyed him even more was the doubt that it was rape. After all, the victim had been surrounded by 40 to 50 men, and fingers were inserted into her bodily orifices. To fail to acknowledge that this is rape is “from a professional standpoint completely off,” said Joachim H.

He conceded, however, that the organized sexual excesses along with theft and robbery were a “new phenomenon”, a “first case”, unknown to the officers until then. The officer perceived the cancellation request as a “shady threat” from someone from a regional authority, who probably “inflated” himself. The two Cologne detective chief superintendents were not intimidated by the phone call that lasted for about one minute at about 1:30 PM on January 1st, and did not change the wording of the IE account.

But both superintendents don’t know who the caller from the control center LZPD was. The committee is expected to find out who was on duty at that time, and summon that person. The supervisor at that time was deputy CID Director Heidemarie W., and she learned of the explosive call on New Year’s Day. A few days later, she informed the department head for police affairs at the Interior Ministry of NRW, Wolfgang Düren, about the cancellation request, so that he was completely informed. Düren wanted to prepare for the special session in the Interior Committee of Parliament, in which he together with NRW Interior Minister Ralf Jäger (SPD) for the first time commented extensively on New Year’s Eve. But Düren did not mention the cancellation request  to the committee then.

However, he said something that  now brings additional complications upon himself. In January, Düren stressed that both days after New Year’s Day, January 2 and 3, there was intensive communication about New Year’s Eve, also with deputy CID Director Heidemarie W. of the Cologne police. But the officer now clarifies in front of the investigation committee: “I have to disagree with this.” It was January 4 when she, for the first time, talked to a member of the NRW Interior Ministry.

Lutz Bachmann fined 10,000 Euros for saying things about the hordes of Illegal Muslims migrating into Germany

Die Welt

District Court Dresden
17:14h
Pegida-Founder Bachmann convicted for incitement of the people/hate speech (“Volksverhetzung”)
Pegida-founder Lutz Bachmann was sentenced to a fine of 9,600 EUR (11,516.00 USD/14,016.00CAD) for “Volksverhetzung” (incitement of the people/hate speech) by the district court Dresden on tuesday.
Pegida-Gründer Lutz Bachmann has been sentenced by the district court Dresden for “Volksverhetzung” (incitement of the people/hate speech) to a fine of 9,600 Euro (or 120 daily fines in lieu of jail time of 80 Euro). The head of the islam- and refugee-adversed association is said to have denigrated refugees, and to have incited hatred towards them, in comments on facebook.
The 43-year-old wo has a criminal record for theft and drug trade denied that these comments were made by him. Prosecution demanded a jail sentence of seven months, the defense pleaded not guilty. The verdict of tuesday is not final yet.

Note from translator:

on Facebook, Pegida asks everyone to read an article on “epoch times” which, Pegida said, had the facts. But it is a bit disappointing.
All the article on epoch times said was that Bachmann was accused of having made comments in a closed Facebook group, before he became front man of Pegida, calling refugees “Vieh” (cattle) and “Gelump”. The epoch times article left it that vague. When precisely? what group? what was the context and who reported him, etc. – all these things one might like to know, they don’t say.
Maybe because the verdict isn’t final yet?
My English dictionary says “rubbish” for “Gelump”. But that is not a literal translation, the word Bachmann used literally means something like old stuff that lies around collecting dust in an attic, and it is certainly condescending, but really more old-fashioned than actually offensive.
It is interesting in contrast that recently the vice president of Germany, Sigmar Gabriel (Social Democrats) famously called people who are against refugees “Pack” (low lifes/vermin).
The official German dictionary “Duden” says “Gelump” (Bachmann’s expression) is a synonym for “Pack” (our vice president’s expression).
Bit of a double standard there.

3. Officials ‘tried to erase rape’ from Cologne NYE report

(We have known this for some time. But it is nice to see this knowledge become mainstream)

A high-ranking police officer has alleged that his seniors tried to strike the word rape from an internal police report after the mass sexual assaults in Cologne over New Year.

A chief superintendent in the Cologne police told the investigative committee established in the wake of the attacks that the interior ministry in North Rhine-Westphalia had sought to influence the investigations.

The officer explained that an official from the ministry had called about a rape charge mentioned in an internal police report.

“That isn’t rape. Get rid of it. Delete the report,” the ministry official said, according to the chief superintendent.

The rape report was made by a young woman who alleges she was surrounded by a group of around 50 men, some of whom pushed their fingers inside of her.

 

4. Satirical Erdogan doll up for auction on Ebay in ‘solidarity’ with Jan Böhmermann

The proceeds of the auction, which ends on Friday, May 6, at 3:58 p.m. local time (1358 UTC), will be donated to “Reporters without Borders.” The non-governmental organization, which defends freedom of information and freedom of the press, uses donations for causes such as the medical treatment or legal fees of persecuted journalists. The unexpected offer of 10,000 euros ($11,500) was made on Monday by an Ebay bidder in Austria, the doll’s creator Marcel Offermann told DW.

The 45-year-old artist from the western German town of Neuss, near Düsseldorf, said he recreated Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as a 65-centimeter-sized figurine in solidarity with German satirist Jan Böhmermann.

6. Britain First brings cameras into Britain’s largest Halal slaughterhouse

(Its really too bad Britain First didn’t do a little more research before they did this action. The fact is halal Slaughter is designed to be cruel. It isnt that they slit the throat. Kosher butchering does that as well, but Kosher butchers cut the head clean off so you get immediate death. Halal DOES NOT CUT THE SPINE. The idea is to basically suffocate and frighten the animal to death. It can be argued that its part of the process of dehumanizing Muslims to prepare them for cruelty against non-Muslims.)

7. 4 terror tip-offs a day: Germany’s intel chief calls for more anti-extremist powers

(So if I wanted to be a totalitarian state, I would bring in millions of people who constitute a massive threat to everything our culture and history has believed in, then I would demand special unconstitutional power over the general public to deal with the threat I created. Then, I would occasionally have a success against the group who was threatening the civilization but really tighten the screws against the general public. Anyone else see the series, Babylon 5? not a perfect analogue for this but an extremely frightening representation of many aspects of how totalitarianism comes to a free people.)

The head of Germany’s domestic intelligence agency has advocated broader security powers in the face of the imminent IS threat and rise of the radical right. He called for a “coalition against extremism” in Germany to be created with moderate Muslims at its core.

Speaking at the security symposium in Berlin on Monday, the head of Germany’s Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution Hans-Georg Maassen warned of the “worsening security situation in Germany,” adding that the country’s political climate is “a lot rougher” now than it had been before due to the radicalization of previously non-partisan Germans and the activity of Islamist groups operating in Germany.
