1. Car bomb hits Swedish, Finnish consulates in Libya

A car bomb exploded outside a building housing the Swedish and Finnish consulates in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Friday, badly damaging it but causing no casualties, Libyan and Swedish officials said.

2. More on the attack on Tommy Robinson in Luton

She said: “Three men came out of the chicken shop and started shouting at Tommy and the film crew. Then they went for him and attacked him, they were hitting him and he was just trying to get away saying he didn’t want a fight.

3. Home made banner hung on the mosque at Poitiers. Article and video are in French but as far as we can tell so far, all they say is, a banner was hung from the mosque itself in the French town of Poitiers which reads: “Islam Out” and they are investigating. They have a list of possible suspects. In the video, the imam claims it was a racist act, somehow confounding several hundred years of evolutionary biology.

4. Could there be a double standard in the way Christians and Muslims are treated in the USA? Story here.

5. Nice to see North Korea becoming interested in what appears to be circa 1800’s US style square dances. The only thing is, if you don’t follow the caller just exactly right, its three generations in a gulag.

Thank you M, Richard, Fjordman and everyone who sent in material today. If anyone has not seen the Swiss clip I posted late last night, please do watch it. A great moment is where a muslim man humiliates two muslim women by treating them like children and telling them not to speak to a reporter and taking over the interview to explain how islam does not humiliate women.

  1. #3 How? Manlift (such as a JLG brand)? Climbers? Or did the Iman do it himself? I can imagine 2 peple walking into the mosque and committing this act

    My bet is that it was climbers or the Iman with an edge that the Iman did it.

  2. #1, #3

    The Finns have never done anything against the Muslims.

    The Swedish government is not unfriendly toward Muslims. Quite the contrary they are suicidally dumb.

    I do not get it.

  3. Eeyore,

    I get that part. I had misgivings leaving that out. It is just that, I would have thought they would not want to tip their hand. Unless they thought it no longer mattered or they just could not help themselves.

  4. FYI “Exclusive: Tommy Robinson, a Prominent British Voice of Hate, Apologizes” by Nico Hines on The Dialy Baest

    “…While Quilliam, a respected anti-extremism organization, trumpeted their success in decapitating one of the world’s leading anti-Islamic protest groups, Muslims and activists raised questions about Robinson’s failure to apologize for his own hateful remarks. He was happy to attack far-right elements that had joined his “street protest movement,” but appeared unwilling to renounce the ideology at the very heart of the organization he had founded….

    ….Jonathan Russell, of the Quilliam Foundation, insisted this week: “We believe in the power of people to change.” Yet, when you ask Robinson whether he has changed his views, the answer is far from clear. “People say; ‘Will I apologize for the English Defense League?’ No, because it’s had to be formed, because of the groundswell of grassroots support,” he said…..

    ….Mohammed Shafiq, chief executive of the Ramadhan Foundation, a Muslim community organization, said it was obvious that Robinson still held the same views despite his change in tactics. “Everything we’ve seen suggests he hasn’t disowned his previous comments, his philosophy or his racism,” he told The Daily Beast. “It’s a bizarre spectacle; the Quilliam Foundation have given him this platform. It’s very damaging for them and actually in the Muslim community there is absolute unanimity of anger toward Quilliam because we know Tommy Robinson has insulted the prophet Mohamed, he has insulted the Quran, he has insulted Muslims, and the Islamic faith.”

    Maajid Nawaz, the chairman of Quilliam and a former radical Islamist, said helping Robinson and his deputy, Kevin Carroll, to quit the group was a natural continuation of their work in rehabilitating extremists. “As well as being a very positive change for the United Kingdom, this is a very proud moment for Quilliam,” he said. “We have been able to show that Britain stands together against extremism regardless of political views.”

    Shafiq suggested the only reason Robinson had “jumped off a sinking ship” was because the EDL brand was becoming increasingly toxic. “They’ve been exposed for what they are: racist, fascist thugs, who get pissed and shout slogans,” he said.

    Away from the street protests, some fear Robinson will be able to cultivate a more respectable public persona while continuing to influence the debate with anti-Islamic views. “He’s still very dangerous,” said Shafiq.

    The Quilliam Foundation, whose well-appointed rooms were hosting our meeting, was founded in 2008 by a group of repentant jihadis as the world’s first counter-extremism think tank. They plan to train Robinson to better articulate his anti-Islamist feelings. He said he would like to set up a new group once he had learned more.

    “Ideally, I want to set up an organization that I was thinking of calling the Anti-Islamist Movement,” he said. “But then, I’ve had a four-year struggle with far-right extremism. So I don’t want to call it a one-off name. I want to do what these guys do and tackle extremists across the board.”…”

    So sad. As a retired cop and being a muzlim immigrant from Egypt that converted to a follower of Christ I am saddened to illness in my heart. I came here to get away from the hate of islam. Like our president, those that follow a pedophile (moohammed married a 6 year old), there is nothing but pain to be delivered to all non-muzlims. Americans are too busy with beer, football and wide screen TV’s to care about anything except their food stamps and obama fone. So sad. when the civil war comes Christians MUST remember that God commands we protect the weak and innocent. We are to turn the other cheek only when we are persecuted for Christ. Archangels abound with authority to defend and attack. Be prepared and be one. Again, be prepared
