Sebastian Kurz announces headscarf ban for kindergartens and schools
April 04., 2018
„Veiling little children is something that should definitely have no place in our country“, said Austria’s chancellor Sebastian Kurz. With this, he wanted to prevent discrimination at a young age.
In the will of the Austria government, in the future, girls won’t be allowed to wear a headscarf in kindergarten and elementary school any longer. „Veiling little children is something that should definitely have no place in our country“, said chancellor Sebastian Kurz on Wednesday in Vienna.
It was about granting the same opportunities to all children. „And this also means that there isn’t any discrimination at a young age“, said Kurz. The new law will be titled „Child Protection Law“. „All children should have equal opportunities, girls and boys“, said Kurz.
The respective motion is to be formulated no later than the beginning of summer. To elevate the law into constitutional status, the government, conservative ÖVP and right-wing FPÖ, will have to convince one oppositional party of their plan. FPÖ-chief Heinz-Christian Strache wanted to combat „undesirable developments regarding political Islam“ with his headscarf ban for girls.
50 people charged for veiling their faces
It is unclear how many children are affected. There are no figures. „It is certainly a symbolic gesture“, said education minister Heinz Faßmann (ÖVP).
In Austria, a general ban on veiling the face came into effect half a year ago. The anti-face-curtaining-law means that in public spaces and in public buildings, clothes or other items shall not disguise or veil „the facial features in such way that they aren’t recognizable anymore“. Dressing up in the context of halloween is not affected by this law, the decree specifies.
Since then, approximately 50 people have been charged. The law specifically aims at veiling with a burqa or a niqab, and it is meant to promote integration of Muslims. According to the law, it is punishable with up to 150 Euros, if the face is made invisible between chin and brows.
1. 1 in 3 Muslim students in Germany willing to fight and die for Islam
A survey of schools in the German region of Lower Saxony has shown that close to 10 per cent of Muslim students have direct sympathies for radical Islamic groups like Islamic State and some even support acts of terrorism.
One in three of the Muslim students who responded to the survey said that they would be willing to fight and die for Islam.
Twenty-seven per cent said they agreed with the statement: “The Islamic laws of Sharia, according to which, for example, adultery or homosexuality are severely punished, are much better than the German laws.

2. German Court Overturns Sharia Police Acquittal
Germany’s Federal Court of Justice ruled Thursday that a regional court had erred when deciding in November 2016 to acquit the Muslim vigilantes, because the chamber had not examined the impact of the vigilantes’ actions on the public.
The case revision had been sought by public prosecutors.
The seven men, put initially on trial in Wuppertal for falsely wearing uniforms, had patrolled the western German city of Wuppertal at night in September 2014, wearing orange warning vests bearing the words “Sharia Police.”
The Wuppertal regional court subsequently ruled that the vigilantes had not broken German law simply by approaching people while wearing the emblazoned vests.

3. Convert Teen Who Had Gone Missing Surfaced in Algeria
A Hamburg teenage girl named Juliane Hippel, who had fallen in love with an Algerian “refugee”, and disappeared after his deportation, seems to have surfaced in Algeria. According to her father, she has called him. Police Germany have been searching for the girl since December 2.
In her father’s words:
„Suddenly she walked around with headscarf and long rags. She used to be a normal teenager, went to dance class, and swimming, and wanted to become a veterinarian.“
According to Bild, her best friend says:
“Jule blundered into this. She thought the Koran and all that was cool. She just didn’t like that Morchid beat her in public.”
Let’s hope that the Germans get her out there, in case her feelings for Morchid should wane (or maybe just her senses come back), and she might decide to leave him. We have documented too many cases of Sharia “break-ups”.
In a Facebook post today, Hamed Abdel-Samad slammed “Glamour” magazine for naming Linda Sarsour “woman of the year”.
Original translation of his post:
A woman in America has just been named Woman of the Year by Glamour magazine for organizing a march against Donald Trump last year.
The woman is called Linda Sarsour, she wants to introduce parts of Sharia law in America, and claims that the system in Saudi Arabia is more humane for women than the Western system.
Not only that. She massively attacked the human rights activist Ayan Hirsi-Ali because she had criticized Islam’s treatment of women. About Ali, Sarsour said,”I wish I could take her vagina away. Women like that don’t deserve to be women.”
Incidentally, Sarsour, who calls herself a feminist, was the initiator of the campaign “Headscarf means empowerment of women”, which has now also gained a foothold in Europe.
Congratulations, the self-empowerment of political Islam advances, with the friendly support of the left and its feminists!
The question is now: Why should one have compassion for a culture that no longer knows where it stands and that voluntarily gives itself up?
Upon visiting their website, we found that it doesn’t end there: Glamour Magazine also thought the “Hijab Barbie” deserves an award.
Because nothing is as empowering to little girls as teaching them they must hide their hair and bodies:
I have recently been searching through old hard drives looking for something which was very important at the time, and I have no recollection of what it was now, but have found a lot of important materials that have been removed from the net since I first published them.
Will restore as I can, This is just one of them.
In the video of the tweet embedded below, there is a fine woman who well represents her case that there is no need in islam for muslims to do their various rituals and ablutions during the working day for which she gives cultural and scriptural reasons.
On many occasions I have argued that this must not be done. At least not in this manner.
Robert Spencer, Stephen Coughlin, Bill Warner and a small handful of other scholars are the rare exceptions as they fully get the implications of these kinds of debates but for the rest of us, the best we can hope for is winning a battle on the way to losing the war. And winning the battle is unlikely.
The fact is, the only variables that can be allowed to be considered when discussing work place behaviour, are the terms the employer set when the job was given to someone.
If foot washing and preying can be done invisibly to the business and its clients during break times then who’s to argue? But debating special cases using Islamic scripture or reasoning, such as it is, will always mean a victory for Islam, not just over the business or circumstance in question, but over all of society, as it will mean that Islamic reasoning and law, will increasingly be the deciding factor for how we make decisions.
This is not a small thing.
I made this same point when a woman was flying to the Middle East and a muslim passenger demanded the aircraft be turned to face the East so he could prey towards Mecca. Our friend loudly explained that Islamic law says when traveling, prayers can be deferred till one reaches one’s destination. She won the argument in a way, and the aircraft was not turned, more because the pilot simply refused to endanger the entire aircraft and change his flight plan so a tard can mumble incantations and arselift in Arabic.
The pilot had the right idea.
It doesn’t matter what sharia says. It doesn’t matter what Koran says is compulsory. It only matters what our law says, and what our values are. People who wish to participate in our society must also make reasonable accommodation to keep their own culture private and after hours and live up to the agreements they make when they apply for, and accept employment, or board an aircraft which doesn’t turn East at prayer time, or doesn’t stop non-muslims from eating during ramadan.

Here is a tweet from The Blue Tory movement.
I post it because I have now had numerous conversations with multiple people close to the Ontario Conservative party who have at great length and detail, explained that the party is now more COMTARD than in fact the corrupt Liberal Party of Ontario.
Therefore confidence is high that this is as it appears to be.
