1. Sesame Street in Afganistan?
(Would be good to know what Lloyd’s would charge on an annual basis to insure that studio)
2. In the past 48 hours or so, two interesting MSM stories about Islam have been published which come a lot closer to the truth about Islam than we are used to from any large and government controlled media in the West. The first one is a BBC radio interview. (Posted yesterday also) The money moment on that one is when the host asks a Diobandi muslim why he has pamphlets in his mosque which advocate the murder of Ahmediya Muslims as apostates of Islam, and he answers that the Ahmediya must have put them there to make the Diobandi look bad. Hilarity should have ensued. The second, and you will need your VPN set to UK to see it, is a Channel4 documentary about the real views of Muslims in the UK. While it still falls short of the mark it is at least closer to the target than anything I have seen since the first version of Undercover Mosque some time ago now.
3. I don’t get this 100% yet as I haven’t passed it by the Germans who translate for us. But from google translate, I get that Gen-Ident in Austria interrupted a warm fuzzy play about muslim migrants with the trademark fake blood etc. and the whole audience chanted Nazi Scum at them.
4. Tommy Robinson RT right after leaving the court
5. The BBC covers some of the story of Turkish leader Erdogan and his conflict with German comic Boehmerman who read the insulting poem about Erdogan.
(We have a ton of great German videos waiting to be translated on this. I hope to publish a more comprehensive look at this story that could be a turning point in terms of Western values and laws on freedom of speech Vs. Islamic sensitivities)
(Wish I could say this was an isolated case)
The Syrian-origin Swedish passport holder arrested in Belgium last week for his involvement in the Brussels bomb attacks is a former poster boy for Sweden’s efforts at integrating migrants into their society.
Now accused of murder, and captured on CCTV cameras carrying bags which contained the explosive devices which killed 32 civilians, Islamist Osama Krayem had once been hailed as a model of integration. A former employee of the city of Malmo, at the age of 11 Osama starred in a documentary about migrants in Sweden.
Both of Osama’s parents are Syrian migrants to Sweden, and have told tabloid Aftonbladet they wanted to see their son integrate into Swedish society. The family featured in a 2005 documentary called ‘Without Borders — A Film About Sport And Integration’, in which football-mad Krayem demonstrated how the Malmo football team had helped him settle into Swedish society.
The club had run an integration project, encouraging local migrant youth to play football. Club marketing manager Christer Girke said of the programme: “We wanted to show the importance of integration… the boys were to go to the association to see what the other Swedes did and get to know the [football] associations were important, how it can be a gateway to jobs and much more”.
We are just starting to play catch up here at Vlad, so much more to come today.
Also Robert Spencer spoke in Ottawa and Montreal over the past couple of days and I am reliably informed that editing is underway and all that material should be posted over the next few days, certainly by end of Monday or Tuesday barring any serious tech issues. This is something to look forward to, as Robert never fails to deliver important information entertainingly and that should have an impact on policy if it is ever heard and understood by the right people.
Please check back regularly over the next few days as much more should be added, and, as always, check the daily links posts for the latest news and comments by the regulars, itself better than traditional news sources.
