Check out the reasoning.
People need comfort, but hearing a call across the city in a foreign language that ultimately is a call to dominate the non-muslims, cannot be something familiar which gives comfort.
This is classic neo-Marxist attacks on Classical Civilization using language and cognitive dissonance and of course, anyone who objects is a “racist” so pointing out the absurdity and hypocrisy of the reasoning to allow this, won’t go over well. May even be punished by law. If you can get a $1500.00 fine for taking your dog to your own back yard, then it wouldn’t be much of a stretch to punish people for not supporting the call to prayer, in a time where we are all supposed to be isolating, (another aspect of the cognitive dissonance) might net you a criminal charge of some kind.
Rumour has it that around May 11th or so, this sequestration may begin to end. This likely means that before Ramadan is done, the call to prayer will actually be a call to prayer and not be for “comfort” at all. It will be what it is intended to be.
A triumphalist note for Muslims where their prayers and schedules are supreme over the unbelievers.
I deeply hope that someone will stand across the street from the mosque and practice Bagpipes at the same time. It would be interesting to see how the police handle that one. Should someone decide to do it, make sure it’s filmed.

Too few people know that the Turkish leader, a man who the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood declared to be the one true Caliph according to NSA’s Arabist, Barry Webb, spent 4 months in jail for reading an illegal poem early on in his career as an Islamic leader.
(This link to the video of Barry Webb works at the moment)
Erdogan, it seems, learned the opposite lesson from his stint in jail. In 1997, as mayor of Istanbul, he too spoke poetry to power. At a rally in the city of Siirt, Erdogan loosely referenced a poem by the Turkish nationalist Ziya Gokalp:
The mosques are our barracks,
the domes our helmets,
the minarets our bayonets,
and the believers our soldiers.
Flash forward to this week, November 15, 2019:
On October 25, a leader of a NATO member nation openly incited violence against non-Muslims.
On that day, Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan attended the Friday prayers at the Great Çaml?ca Mosque in Istanbul. He was accompanied by Istanbul’s governor Ali Yerlikaya, mayor Ekrem ?mamo?lu, Istanbul’s chief of police Mustafa Çal??kan and the head of the Istanbul branch of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), Bayram ?enocak.
After the prayers, the hafiz of the mosque recited the Koranic Verse Al-Fath, which means “victory, triumph, conquest” in English. Then Erdogan took the microphone, reciting a part of the verse in Arabic and then in Turkish. He told the congregants:
“Our God commands us to be violent towards the kuffar (infidels). Who are we? The ummah [nation] of Mohammed. So [God] also commands us to be merciful to each other. So we will be merciful to each other. And we will be violent to the kuffar. Like in Syria.”
So we know three things.
He was willing to do time in jail as Mayor of Constantinople to read a poem about Islamic global conquest.
He was named the Caliph by the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Yusuf al-Qaradawi, and the Muslim Brotherhood moved from Egypt to Turkey.
He has now been increasingly strident about the Islamic motivations for military actions, as witnessed by the linked article above.
This is more than a trend in general propaganda. Please see this MEMRI report on the Turkish invasion of Northern Syria to understand how Islamic scripture is the driving force behind contemporary Turkish military actions.
In the written article associated with this video, the same journalist says that civil war in Europe is inevitable, and will be worse than all the Islamic atrocities combined so far. Perhaps we can get that translated as well. But here is the broadcast part of the interview as it is, for the time being.
For those of you who did not see his documentary on jihad groups in the west, here is the segment on the USA. The segment on France, which is much more frightening apparently, is in the works I am told. But to get an idea of why this person’s opinion matters, you can see the segment that is available here:
Egri Nok translated this article about the Catalan independence movement and its connections to Islamic manifest destiny. This was posted by Egri in October of this year.
CATALONIA – Catalonia elected its first female Muslim MP in the region’s elections last Thursday, bringing the number of Muslim parliamentarian representative to three.
The December 21st election marked the 12th Parliament of the Autonomous Community of Catalonia, during which pro-independence parties took a majority in regional elections.
The thirty-six-year-old Moroccan was placed 10th on the list of the Barcelona’s Republican Left Party of Catalonia, becoming the first woman of the Catalon community to join the legislative body of Catalonia.
“I am taking this step at such a complicated time for Catalonia because I believe it’s necessary to civilize part of society – that minority which believes that another minority is second-class,” said Driouech, Morocco World News reported.
Yes Islam is famous for civilizing Western nations.
Humour is the best medicine. It is also the best weapon against bullies, totalitarians, or anyone who takes themselves too seriously. Perhaps that is why humour is one of the first things curtailed when freedom of speech is threatened.
We have seen Canadian comedians fined thousands of dollars for telling a politically incorrect joke.
We have seen German comedians charged and threatened with extradition to Turkey for authoring a humorous poem about Recep Erdo?an.
We know we are not far from the days when Socialist Regimes on the wrong side of the Iron Curtain would routinely jail people for telling jokes…
Well, some of us know…
Perhaps those who lived behind the Iron Curtain remember it better than most of us. Perhaps that is why they cherish their Freedom of Speech and why they use humour to ensure it does not become as eroded as it has become in much of The West.
And Czechs do love their humour. It is therefore not surprising that Dr. Martin Konvicka, a brave patriot who is fighting to preserve his cultural heritage – and his freedom of speech – and his organization IMK (Iniciativa Martina Konvicky) have turned to humour to deliver their message.
And deliver it they did!
On August 21st, Czechs mark the anniversary of the invasion of Czechoslovakia by the Soviet Union of and the rest of their Warsaw Pact ‘allies’. This invasion had ended the liberalization of Czechoslovakia, called Prague Spring (after which the Arab Spring freedom movement was named), and was opposed by the vast majority of the population. Yet, when it became clear that the invaders were going to succeed in rolling back the progress towards liberalism and that hard socialism would indeed be imposed, many people had started licking the heels of their oppressors in order to improve their social status.
Now, Europe is experiencing a very different type of an invasion: millions of young, strong, able-bodied Muslims are flooding in, falsely claiming to be fleeing war, and imposing Sharia restrictions on the Freedom of Speech through threats of violence and massacres should the local governments refuse to impose them. And there is absolute proof that these people are not poor refugees fleeing war: some of the ones who had already been granted asylum in Europe – and living off of government subsidies – are also holidaying in their countries of origin.
Dr. Konvicka and IMK took the opportunity to draw parallels between the two invasions: the invasion of Czechoslovakia by their socialist brothers on the one hand and the Muslim invasion on the other. And the anniversary of the Warsaw Pact occupation was the perfect occasion!
As you can see from the videos above, it was a fun skit, people were enjoying it, except for the few who disagreed with the message – and who were not afraid to say so…which they would presumably be if they had thought this really was ISIS. Despite all of this evidence, Czech and International media corporations have universally reported panic, injuries and havoc…
And that is why you have to go to the blogosphere to see what had actually happened.
Following this street theatre, Dr. Konvicka was kind enough to grant this interview:
As you can see, humour is an effective tool to use against totalitarians of all stripes (or stars).
After the skit, many ‘Progressive’ politicians demanded an investigation into how Dr. Konvicka had managed to get a permit to stage this skit, calling for the bureaucrat who had granted it to be fired and Mr. Konvicka to be charged with something. Anything! Spreading false news, perhaps? (Would this not apply even more to the mainstream media?)
Well, there is still some sanity in Czech and the investigation had concluded just last week and found that everything was fine, and nobody has to get fired or charged with anything. Even more sanity: a judge has just dismissed all charges against the protesters who had carried gallows during last year’s anti-migrant demonstrations.
And Dr. Konvicka is far from being done. To mark the 15th anniversary of the Islamic attack on the Twin Towers on 9/11, he held a demonstration in front of the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Prague:
The event took place on the 11th of September, 2016, in front of the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Prague, from 2 pm until it had been disbanded about 30 minutes later.
The large sign behind Dr. Konvicka, hanging on the Saudi Embassy fence, has a delightful little rhyme:
Dr. Konvicka was not the only one to speak at this demonstration. Beata Radosa, a former Muslima who explained that she used to believe that a hijab would keep her modesty and protect her from sexual harassment. When wearing the hijab did not protect her from harassment by Muslim men, she began to loose her faith and eventually left Islam. Now, she is an activist and a blogger. Her site (in Czech) is called Women Against Islam.
In her above-linked post, she points out that the Magister’s office warned them against using the port-a-potty to represent the Ka’aba…even though this was not specified in the permit application. This can only bring us to one conclusion: in the minds of the Magister’s office bureaucrats, the Ka’aba and a port-a-potty are closely related.
And, she writes, the Port-a-Ka’aba was such a danger to public safety that a whole squad of police in riot gear had to come and monitor the situation.
Martin Vitek was the third speaker and he pointed out some negative aspects of Islam and how they are connected to Saudi Arabia.
Then came the street theatre, until, that is, uniformed police officers pulled the plug on it and heavily armoured police officers arrived to let everyone know they are willing to use force on unarmed citizens if they don’t obey the order fast enough. Photos of the armoured police dispersing the citizens are at this Czech language site.
The lesson of the day? ‘Piss Christ’ is art, ‘Dung Madonna’ is art, but ‘Port-a-Ka’aba’ is hate speech. And the Czech Republic, despite being one of the most enlightened societies, is perfectly willing to use physical force to curb speech it does not like.
Czechs are, however a tenacious peoples. (Is it still allowed to say that or is that now racist?) Dr. Konvicka and IMK are planning more activities: on September 17, 2016, and on November 17, 2016.
Stay tuned, dear readers, for what is coming next!
Some information about the video:
A speech given by Osman Gökcek (Leader of the Turkish Youth Association ‘Tügef’) in 2015, in the presence of the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The speech was given before the coming general elections.
Some notes from the translator:
In the speech the year 2023 is mentioned. This year has special meaning for the neo-Ottomans, because it is the 100-year anniversary of the end of the Ottoman empire.
Thank you Dr. Van Helsing for the Translation.
As an addendum, the music used in the background at this event, which I learned from a copyright claim at Youtube is:
No doubt it is.
Oz-Rita has translated more from the man who was at the Kolne PEGIDA demo and reasons that the police used agent-provocateurs to false-flag the peaceful demo.
Here we have prepared a video recording which clearly shows that the police let the fire cracker thrower, who in part provoked the collision between Police and Pegida, escape through the barrier despite my request to hold him in order to check his identity.
The excuse from the police that they did not know, is wrong, because shortly before the video started I had alerted them to his presence by shouting it out to them, loudly. When he realized that he had been recognized,he pulled out a green card in check card format, which means it was a police badge. Their assertion that he was from the press is therefore just a protective claim.
All the other videos have shown that the demonstration gave absoluty no reason to cancel it and to pursue the citizens with batons, to beat us up with batons, to bomb us from behind with the water canons while we were retreating and to injure the citizens with tear gas.
The police indulged in an incredible orgy of violence and stopped the event even though all videos prove that from the part of the demonstrators there was not even a hint of violence which would have justified these police actions.
Mr. Jäger, Interior Minister of North Rhine Westphalia and a very great Nazi hunter has already allowed in advance that an event is broken down to suit the media.
One thing has become very clear to me: The politicians wanted to make an example of Pegida to prevent more citizens from joining it in the future, and produce the “news” that Pegida events are violent. They also wanted a distraction from their failures on New Years Eve in Cologne.
We will ensure that Mr. Jäger will be held to account and will answer question about this.
