Immigration issues, Islam, various attacks and more: Links 2 on Aug. 10 – 2015

1. Conservative campaign promise would bring in 10,000 Iraqi and Syrian refugees

The Conservatives are promising to bring 10,000 additional refugees from Syria and Iraq if re-elected — despite refusing to say whether thousands of others from the war-torn region have already been resettled.

Stephen Harper says the party would meet the new commitment over four years by targeting refugees from religious minority groups in the region who face persecution or the threat of extremist violence.

2. Pregnant Swedish teen captured by IS in Syria: Media

(Not the least reason we should not be letting muslims into Western nations)

3. Angry Afghan leader assails Pakistan as haven for deadly Taliban attacks

(That must be one hard score card to keep)

4. American activist organizing global anti-islam protest.

5. Australian television personality defends calling Muslim MP a ‘Mussie’

Eddie McGuire, a powerful Australian sporting figure and television personality known for his controversial off-hand comments, has been criticised for describing a state MP as a ‘soccer loving Turkish-born Mussie’

Eddie McGuire, a prominent Australian television presenter and Australian rules football figure, has refused to apologise for describing a Turkish-born MP as a “mussie” and insisted his Muslim friends regarded it as a term of endearment.

As Mr McGuire’s colleagues admitted the use of the term at a meeting of sporting officials made them cringe, he said the comments were “my vernacular” and blamed his enemies for trying to discredit him.

“I checked with [my Muslim friends] again after the story came out to make sure I wasn’t barking up the wrong tree and they laughed,” he told Channel Nine.

6. Birmingham mosque teachers admit beatings

Two Islamic school teachers have admitted beating a child at a mosque in Birmingham.

Mohammed Siddique, 60, and his 23-year-old son Mohammed Waqar had previously denied slapping and hitting a boy with a stick at Sparkbrook’s Jamia Mosque.

They changed their pleas on what was due to be the opening day of their trial at Birmingham Crown Court.

The hearing was adjourned for pre-sentence reports until 7 September and the two men were released on bail.

Siddique and Waqar were charged with wilful cruelty to a child under 16. The court heard the pair had attacked a boy on four separate occasions between May and June 2014.

7. Temple Mount Aug. 9 – 2015

(Filmed by muslims, their title as transited by machine reads: ‘The march of Israeli flags around the Al-Aqsa and the provocations of the settlers’)

8. WTD has dug up a lot more on the IKEA attack. It is looking more and more like it wasn’t a customer who had tried to assemble one of their bookshelves.

The suspects were two men born in 1992 and 1979 who probably knew each other, Agren said. They had no connection with the victims and the motive for the attack was not known, he said.

Thank you Richard, M., Gates of Vienna, WTD., and many more. More to come.

In the previous post with the video of the pope:

at  0:56  on the video  
he says  :  questo si chiama violenza …. si chiama uccidere  !

the translation should be something like  :  – this is called violence ,   this is called killing

(Thanks for the correction)

After hearing about the attack in Turkey against the US embassy I started thinking about history and attacks against the US embassies world wide.

A more complete list and an analysis of which ones were Islamic, which communist and what other attacks have taken place, as well as which ones took place under a democratic president and which under republican and a strong or weak president would be very interesting. One thing I can say without looking any further at all, is the most attacks against US consular missions world wide by a great leap backwards, are under Obama’s watch with at least 8, Pakistan, Yemen, Tunisia, Egypt, Benghazi, Afghanistan, and now Turkey twice.

  1. More on #8 Ikea attack in Sweden:
    Aftonbladet.se posted same video of arrest/better audio Difficult audio, but clearly there is yelling in the background. Allah akbar??? not clear enough – check it out.

    Vasteras: Mother and son victim of madness
    Mother and son were on vacation visiting local friends/family? – may have been randomly attacked. The two arrested do not have prior record.

    “35-year-old was rushed to the emergency room and he was operated on immediately. He was later transferred to intensive care and the situation remains critical for him.

    Several people witnessed the murders that baffle the police. Neither the mother or her son is believed to have defended itself against the attack and thus caused no damage to the 35-year-old.

    TheLocal.se: Malmo shaken by another hand grenade attack Aug. 10

    The hand grenade exploded on a residential street near one of Malmö’s busiest bus stations in the Möllevången area of the southern city late on Sunday night.

    No one was injured in the blast, which took place at 11pm at a street crossing between Ahlmansgatan and Claesgatan, although some 30 windows were shattered.

    Malmö has been hit by more than 30 explosions since the start of the year. At one point in July four grenade attacks were reported in under a week. Last year, a total of 25 blasts took place in the city over the whole of 2014.

    Many of the hand grenades are believed to come from former conflict zones in the Balkans. Police have previously linked some of the unrest to an increased import of illegal weapons and recently called for tougher border controls on the Öresund bridge between Sweden and Denmark in a bid to tackle the problem.

    Earlier in the summer they also revealed that they were stepping up their presence in known trouble-hit areas such as Rosengård and Seved, where they announced around 30 people believed to be from criminal backgrounds were being tracked by officers.

    Last month, concerns were raised that police staff shortages in the city were putting the public at risk, as around a third of the 705-strong Malmö force were on holiday.

  2. #7
    Permit yourself to imagine the confrontation transposed to Rome. If it can happen at one point (in the center of Jewish life), what is to say that such confrontation will not happen at the center of Catholic life)?

    More videos from the “summer camp” here::

    Here is one of their arts and crafts projects, where they build a barricade to stop Jews and Israeli police from entering.

  3. The thing that struck me about the list of attacks was the way they have been accelerating since the left placed so many roadblocks in the path of the US retaliating for the attacks.
