Islam’s war on our culture and how we lose it: Links 1 for Oct. 31 – 2014

I do enjoy talk radio and comments on articles in major papers which deal with Islam etc. I find it a useful barometer of public opinion and its been interesting to watch it shift over recent years.

Recently I have heard a number of people weighing in on how we should approach Halloween in Ottawa after the attack  which killed Cpl. Nathan Cirillo last week.

Many people have called Lowell Green and other CFRA shows or written comments which suggest that we should dial down the costumes out of respect or fear etc. which got me to thinking about what value Halloween would have had to people in times where that kind of violence was commonplace. We here in the West live at the end of a time of what is likely unprecedented peace and harmony and prosperity thanks to values handed down from the Greeks with layers of Judeo-Christian ethics on top, now sadly stretched by cultural Marxism till those values broke and ended that amazing, even Shangri-La like level of cooperativeness and peace.

Is it possible that in more normal times, meaning horrifying and violent and uncertain, that Halloween was a time where our children and culture could mock the horror that was our day to day reality and thereby diminish its effect? Where for one day a year we dared take it on directly and feel empowered against the forces of our enemies and diseases and starvation and lurking death that could take any of us anytime? Not to mention that one of the things muslims seek to do to us, is remove our culture and cultural activities any way they can for any reason that will work, and Halloween is one of the prime ones, as well as having pet dogs, giving flowers to your loved ones, hell even having loved ones according to some islamic clerics.

So on that note I hope everyone goes out in full gear and is as visible to as many as possible and for those staying at home, load up with candy for your visitors and heap praise on the best costumes. One of the crucial ways to protect and preserve our culture is to live it.

Eeyore for Vlad.

5. No visas for Ebola countries: Canada

(Once again Canada elects to move away from policies that are based on optics and self destruction and towards reason and prevention)

TORONTO – Canada is following in Australia’s footsteps and has suspended, effectively immediately, the issuance of visas to residents of the West African countries battling Ebola.

In a move that puts Canada at odds with the World Health Organization, the federal government said Friday it is suspending visa applications for residents and nationals of countries with “widespread and persistent-intense transmission” of Ebola virus disease.

That stress on countries with widespread transmission provides an out for the United States, which currently still has at least one active Ebola case within its borders.

The federal government said it would stop issuing visas in the worker, student or visitor class and won’t issue any pending permanent residency visas for people from those countries either. Any applications already in the system will also not be processed at this time. The change, which goes into effect immediately, was announced Friday in the Canada Gazette.

(Its funny how the left is so determined to make sure that everyone has access to prophylactics but not when it comes to lethal diseases capable of causing major plagues and mass deaths)

6. Ax attack on D.C. cop prompts warnings, new protocols for police

(despite the fact that the officer wrestled the man to the ground there is no description of the attacker whatsoever even though police are looking for the man. Stunning.)

Washington (CNN) — An officer with Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department came under an unprovoked attack Friday from a man wielding an ax, police said, the second such attack in two weeks that is prompting warnings and new protocols to officers on the job.

The attack, and another last week in which a man attacked four New York City officers with a hatchet in Queens, prompted an immediate increase in security for officers in both D.C. and New York. The New York Police Department said in a memo: “Police Officers on patrol should maintain a heightened level of awareness.”

7. Insanity or triumphalism or a gesture of control?

8. Police, military warned to be vigilant after learning of direct threat by ISIS

MONTREAL — The RCMP is warning both police and military to keep an eye out for terrorists following a threat from Islamic State (ISIS), QMI Agency has learned.

The notice went out Monday. Police and military were told to exercise vigilance and caution upon starting their shifts this week.

Several police forces, including those in Montreal and Quebec City, confirmed the RCMP advisory.

Montreal police sources tell QMI that its force held top-level meetings with the RCMP this week.

The RCMP warning is specifically aimed at police on solo patrols, who have been deemed to be at greatest risk.

Quebec’s Public Security minister, Lise Theriault, said the RCMP advisory follows an earlier threat from ISIS.

8. Pakistan province rewrites text books to satisfy Islamic conservatives

(Reuters) – A Pakistani province is rewriting school books to make them more Islamic, inserting verses on jihad, removing pictures of unveiled women and changing material on recent history, officials said on Thursday.

The public tussle over the changes mirrors a struggle for power at the heart of Pakistan’s young democracy. Secular, liberal parties are vying with conservative, religious parties for influence in the nuclear-armed nation of 180 million people.

  1. UN Resolution Urges Myanmar to Drop Identity Plan

    A new U.N. draft resolution takes aim at Myanmar’s aggressive campaign to have its Rohingya Muslims identify as a term they reject, urging “access to full citizenship on an equal basis.”

    The European Union-drafted resolution, obtained Friday by The Associated Press, is one piece of international pressure on the Southeast Asian country to change its campaign, preferably before world leaders including President Barack Obama arrive for a regional summit in less than two weeks.

    Myanmar’s 1.3 million Rohingya have emerged as a sensitive issue as Myanmar, a predominantly Buddhist state, tries to move away from decades of repressive military rule toward democracy.

    The Rohingya have been denied citizenship and have almost no rights. Attacks by Buddhist mobs have left hundreds dead and 140,000 trapped in camps. Others are fleeing the country.

    Authorities want to officially categorize the Rohingya as “Bengalis,” implying they are illegal migrants from neighboring Bangladesh. The Rohingya counter that many of their families have been in Myanmar for generations. Effectively stateless, they are wanted by neither country and say the Myanmar government’s campaign feels like an effort to have them systematically erased.

    The vast majority of Rohingya live in the state of Rakhine. President Thein Sein, a former general, is considering a “Rakhine Action Plan” that would make people who identify themselves as Rohingya not only ineligible for citizenship but candidates for detainment and possible deportation.

    The resolution now before the General Assembly’s human rights committee is nonbinding, but a strong vote in its support would send a message that international opinion is not on Myanmar’s side.

    A Myanmar diplomat assigned to that committee, reached by telephone Friday for comment, said, “It’s too early to say.”

    The resolution expresses “serious concern” about the Rohingya’s status. It calls on the government to “allow freedom of movement and equal access to full citizenship for the Rohingya minority” and to “allow self-identification.”

    Myanmar’s plan worries some in the Muslim world, and the Organization for Islamic Cooperation pushed for strong language in the resolution.

    This week, Myanmar’s ambassador to the United Nations, Tim Kyaw, told the General Assembly’s human rights committee that his country is not “targeting a religion.” He warned that “insisting on the right to self-identification will only impose obstacles to finding a lasting solution” to ethnic tensions.

    Vijay Nambiar, the U.N. secretary-general’s special adviser on Myanmar, told The Associated Press this week that Myanmar’s government is facing increasing pressure to allow the Rohingya to identify as something other than Rohingya or Bengali.

    But, Nambiar said, “In the immediate future, the government says that’s not possible.”

  2. I seem to recall trick-or-treaters being thin on the ground in Montreal on the Halloween of the FLQ-inspired October Crisis in 1970. But it wasn’t a cultural capitulation, people just had reasonable fears for their children’s safety.

    With all the frustrated ‘extremist travelers’ on the loose in Canada, it is to be hoped that parents are cutting up and carefully inspecting those apples the kids get in their bags.

  3. Eeyore I think your take on what Halloween became a big festival is right, it was a way to laugh at the horror the people lived with, now fear of the barbarians in our midst is ruining what had turned into a good time for the kids into a time when we must fear for their safety.

  4. Halloween! Yes! Right up there with Valentine’s Day as a favorite.
    Skeletons, spiders, death’s-heads. Bats swooped low each time the door opened.
    This year a thrift-shop graduation gown became the perfect chador, the ‘niqab’ revealed only eyes oozing ‘blood’. My Russki obliged with an obscene mess of hair on his face and towel on his head.
    The kids were in 7th heaven. We screamed and then ate ourselves into sugar coma.
    ……
    1/ Is he for real? Trick or Treat? “Live, from New York, it’s Sat…”
    ……
    5/ […] it’s not only disappointing, it’s also a violation of international law.
    No it isn’t.
    The government was polite but firm, responding that it “respected the WHO’s ‘guidance’ but did not refer to it as a treaty.”
    ……
    6/ 4th paragraph: “Police said he was an African-American man about 6 feet tall and of stocky build.”

    7/ An irresistible invitation.
