A few of us have been working most of the evening on translating a new session of the Dutch Parliament with Geert Wilders on the immigrant crisis in Europe right now. Its very good and quite dynamic. A couple of young Dutch parliamentarians puff themselves up with sanctimonious outrage and sling mud at Geert and act as if they represented the Libyan illegals and hold their actual constituents in contempt. Someone really needs to drop a dozen muslim refugees off at their actual homes and be told they will live off of their host’s fat government salaries instead of the working poor who usually end up with both the bill and the permanently changed neighborhoods.
I am hoping to get this finished and posted tomorrow. Its very good. And a great deal of work already and it isn’t even finished yet.
Meanwhile, here is a tribute to the Turkish Foreign Minister:
Police believed the shooting deaths late on Thursday stemmed from a dispute about a family business.
The three male victims were brothers from Morocco and the fourth victim was their mother. The final victim was the wife of one of the men, police said.
Four other people fled the home during the standoff, police said.
Police used a megaphone to try to communicate with the occupants of the home, addressing the family in Arabic.
The Arizona Republic reported that one neighbour said the family owned a transportation service, but another referred to them as “invisible” until Thursday
Two of my abusers had already threatened to kill me. Even in the court, I feared no one could stop these depraved men, all in their 30s, from leaping out to attack me as I gave evidence against them. The court guide assured me I would be safe, but nothing was going to allay my fears entirely.
Mohammed’s defence was laughable: he claimed I’d forced him to take drugs and have sex with me. His barrister, a woman, implied I was a racist because all the defendants were Muslim. Of the men in the dock, my evidence directly related to five. One was convicted of two counts of sexual activity with a child (not me). The others were found guilty of rape, child prostitution and other serious charges.
I was in court to see the judge pass life sentences on Mohammed Karrar, 38; Bassam Karrar, 33; Akhtar Dogar, 32; and Anjum Dogar, 31. The judge told Mohammed he would have to serve a minimum of 20 years. Because the defendants were Muslim, the case had opened sensitive issues about race and religion. My view is clear: they behaved that way because of differences in how they viewed women.
