Road signs of the times. Ignore at your peril: Links 2 on Jan. 15 – 2015

CORRECTION: The Brigitte Bardot story posted last night is old. It was shouted out by a radio host last night as new and I ran with it. My bad. However I think now might be a really good time for Ms. Bardot to ask for her money back

1. Europe’s Leading Rabbi: Jews Must Begin Carrying Guns

(I think all unbelievers should frankly. And if the EU grants this, I bet the synagogues will be awash with new converts)

One of Europe’s most prominent Jewish organizations is petitioning the European Union to pass new legislation that would permit Jewish community members to carry guns “for the essential protection of their communities,” according to a letter obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The European Jewish Association (EJA), which represents Jewish communities across Europe, says that gun license laws must be altered following a string of deadly attacks on Jews in France and other European countries, where anti-Semitism has been growing at an alarming rate

(The EU has already decided to go with different rules for different peoples. The perfect recipe for the perfect storm. I can see them granting this on that basis)

2. Islamists target Swedish Jews after Paris attacks

Jews in Sweden have received numerous threats from Islamic groups in the days since the terror attacks in Paris that left 17 people dead, the head of the Jewish council told The Local.

Stockholm’s Jewish Community has received the bulk of the threats and has beefed up security at its premises across the capital in response.

“We have received emails and letters from Islamists containing threats. The police and security services have raised the threat level accordingly,” Jewish council chairwoman Lena Posner Körösi told The Local.

3. Dieudonné arrested as copies of survivors’ edition of Charlie Hebdo sell out in minutes

 People queued at 7am for copies of the first edition since last week’s shootings

After seven days of terror and defiance, France lapsed into the surreal. Today people queued at 7am to buy a magazine while President François Hollande went up in the polls, and the previous night the Prime Minister Manuel Valls was cheered by his political enemies in the National Assembly. Parliamentarians all sang “La Marseillaise” together for the first time since the First World War.

More predictably, anti-Semitic comedian Dieudonné M’bala M’bala was arrested on charges of “apologising for terrorism”. A week dominated by questions of democratic values and freedom of speech ended with the arrest of the serial provocateur for being provocative.

4. Britain will descend into ‘vigilantism’ unless security measures are stepped up, former MI5 boss warns

(If the UK government responds to this warning at all, it will likely be to make the non-Muslim British public even more helpless and defenseless. Tougher weapons control laws etc. selectively enforced against the indigenous Brits. Any bets?)

Britain will descend into “vigilantism” unless security measures are stepped up to counter the “vulnerability and fear” that people feel in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks, the former head of MI5 has warned. 

Baron Evans of Weardale, who as Jonathan Evans worked for the Security Service for 33 years, also warned that the world faced a build-up of trained terrorists not seen since al-Qaeda ran training camps in Afghanistan before 9/11. 

He spoke in a House of Lords debate as police forces prepared to deploy officers at newsagents selling a special issue of Charlie Hebdo depicting the Prophet Mohammed after extremists said it would “definitely” provoke fresh terrorist attacks.

5. Casualties in Belgium police anti-terror raid in Verviers

At least two people have been killed during a terrorism-related police operation against suspected jihadists in Belgium, with initial reports of “several casualties”. 

Local residents in Verviers, in the east of the country, heard a fusillade of machine gun shots and explosions. 

“I heard like an explosion, followed by several shots,” a resident told RTL television. 

Federal prosecutors told the Belga news agency there had been a police operation near the centre of the town but did not confirm there had been casualties.

  1. CANADA – OTTAWA – Imam concerned about spike in converts to Islam since terrorist attack in Ottawa

    The leader of one of Ottawa’s largest mosques says he’s concerned about the spike in the number of young men who have wanted convert to Islam since October’s terrorist attack in the nation’s capital.

    Samy Metwally, the imam at the Ottawa Mosque, said Wednesday that 15 to 20 people between the ages of 20 and 30 have come to him to convert since the Oct. 22 attack in which convert Michael Zehaf-Bibeau killed Cpl. Nathan Cirillo.


    CBC – Ottawa Mosque concerned by sharp rise in young men converting to Islam

    One of Ottawa’s largest mosques is reporting a sharp increase in the number of young men converting to Islam, which started after the deadly shootings on Oct. 22 at the National War Memorial and Parliament Hill.

    Samy Metwally, the imam at the Ottawa Mosque, told CBC News he’s never seen so many young men coming in after a major incident, wanting to become Muslims.

    He says it’s against his religious beliefs to turn them away.

    Anywhere from 15 to 20 men in their 20s to 30s have come to the mosque to convert since the shootings, he said.

    “This is the biggest number I have seen, by the way,” Metwally said. “This is the biggest number after an event like this happens, and it was strange.”

    To convert, there is no official ceremony but a person reads out loud a testament of faith.

    It’s two sentences in Arabic, saying you believe there is one god and that Prophet Muhammad is his messenger, and it can be read aloud at home or anywhere else.

      • True, Missouri has the shall issue concealed carry permits but some members of the state legislature introduced a bill allowing carrying concealed without a permit. The gun rights people are calling this Constitutional carry, the states of Vermont and Alaska have it, Alaska also has permits with agreements allowing holders of Alaska permits to carry in around 20 states.

  2. #1
    Perhaps the answer is to give all Infidels guns while banning them for Muslims. Then, whenever a Muslim entered a room, there would be a chorus of little “clicks” as safeties were turned off and hammers were cocked, and the Muslim would be dissuaded from committing Jihad that day. Heck! It would have worked wonders at Fort Hood…

    • I agree with you 100%, sadly many states such as CT,MA,MD,NY,NJ and a few others make it impossible for a citizen with a squeaky clean record even with proper training to get a concealed carry permit.

  3. #4 Britain must getting close to direct action by the ordinary Brits for this warning to be issued. I have been expecting something like this.
