  • Sweden: Mosque that applied to broadcast call to prayer has asked Allah to “destroy the Jews”

    03/20/2018 12:20:22 PM PDT · by heterosupremacist · 8 replies ^ | 03/20/2018 | Robert Spencer
    The mosque is denigrating Jews, urging men to control their daughters and women, using Saudi Arabia’s official curriculum and books in their Islamic schools, and urging Muslims not to have contact with “kuffar” (unbelievers). Växjö Mosque has featured in the media in recent weeks, since the foundation applied to broadcast the call to prayer, which caused a debate at the highest political levels. A survey also showed that a majority of the Swedish people want to ban the calls to prayer. On Tuesday, it was revealed that this particular mosque deals with hatred and features hatred on its official Facebook...

    Eight Security Council nations say it's "imperative" that the U.N. body "immediately pursue decisive action" to achieve a cease-fire in Syria if U.N. member states, especially Russia and its ally Syria, don't implement a resolution demanding a cessation of hostilities. A letter sent to all 15 council members on Monday expresses "profound concern" about the lack of implementation of the Feb. 24 resolution demanding a cease-fire throughout Syria without delay to deliver humanitarian aid and evacuate the critically ill and wounded. It singles out Russia and Syria as key to implementation. The letter was signed by France, Kuwait, Peru, Poland,...

    A Swedish countess whose mother is Hungarian has decided to relocate to Hungary because the flood of migrants was made life unsafe in Sweden, particularly for women. After she explained her decision in a TV interview, Countess Natalie was doxxed and her life was threatened. Now she has former soldiers as bodyguards. The Hungarian woman whose life was threatened, whose address was made public, and whose social media site was hacked recently moved home from Sweden because of the migrants. Countess Natalie previously gave an exclusive interview to M1 [Hungarian state television] about the attacks. She has been assigned former...

Security Council had unanimously condemned North Korea’s nuclear weapons and missile programs and demanded the “complete, verifiable and irrevocable elimination of these programs”.

    “It was part of the intimidation campaign to go after family members, including my mother.” This article is part of Index on Censorship partner Global Journalist’s Project Exile series, which has published interviews with exiled journalists from around the world. Abdullah Bozkurt, pictured with the last issue of the Turkish newspaper Today’s Zaman (courtesy). In hindsight, there were many clues that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government was making preparations to eliminate Turkey’s independent media even before it launched a massive crackdown in July 2016. But perhaps the biggest tip-off was the March 2016 police raid and seizure of Zaman, Turkey’s largest...

    Dayanna Volitich, a 25-year-old social studies teacher at Crystal River Middle School in Florida, has been secretly hosting the white nationalist podcast “Unapologetic” under the pseudonym “Tiana Dalichov” and bragging about teaching her views in a public school, HuffPost has discovered. In her most recent podcast on Feb. 26, a guest railed against diversity in schools, dismissing the idea that “a kid from Nigeria and a kid who came from Sweden are supposed to learn exactly the same” and have the “same IQ.” Volitich enthusiastically agreed with the guest, and went on to argue that “science” has proven that certain...

    The New York Times has broken ranks with the the establishment media, publishing an effective mea culpa over the mainstream denial of migrant-related gang crime in Sweden. The paper — which previously mocked President Trump for highlighting Sweden’s migrant crime problems — published over 1,500 words on the subject in its Sunday edition this weekend, stating: Weapons from a faraway, long-ago war are flowing into immigrant neighborhoods here, puncturing Swedes’ sense of confidence and security. The country’s murder rate remains low, by American standards, and violent crime is stable or dropping in many places. But gang-related assaults and shootings are...

    A Swedish woman is facing two years of jail time for crime-think, which is not necessarily a bad thing, and I am talking about Sweden’s luxurious prisons ,which look more like high end tourist resorts, but also about Sharia law precepts, which forbid any criticism of Islam, especially from a woman. As usual, like almost every news that comes nowadays from that progressive paradise, the bastion of multiculturalism and cultural marxism that is feminist Sweden, today we learned that a former Christian country is now implementing what can be best described as Sharia soft. If you don’t know what I...

    A migrant boy with Arab roots has been arrested for raping a 37-year-old man. A 17-year-old boy has been arrested for raping a man. The raid took place earlier this month in southern Sweden. “A 17-year-old boy has been arrested for raping a 37-year-old man. After the rape, the boy robbed the man for money. Both crimes happened while the 17-year-old had a firearm aimed at the man,” Sydsvenskan writes. The evidence in the case is so strong that the judge chose to detain the boy.

    Sweden’s intelligence service has warned “foreign powers” could try to meddle in the country’s upcoming general election, singling out Russia in light of alleged interference in the last US vote. However, the Swedish Security Service (Säpo), which is responsible for tackling espionage and terrorism, said in its annual report that Sweden’s “robust” and “decentralized” electoral system was tough to influence. “It cannot be ruled out that certain foreign powers will take advantage of the Swedish election campaign to enhance conflicts in Swedish society and attempt to weaken the democratic system,” said Säpo head Anders Thornberg in the document, which was...

    The liberal-leaning Church of Sweden is expected to lose over one million members in the next 10 years, insiders have said, and will soon have to start selling property it can no longer support. Börje Holgersson, chairman of the church council of Lima-Transtrand in Västerås, said in an article for SVT, the Swedish national public TV, that the parish "simply can't afford to make ends meet." A translation by Breitbart News on Wednesday noted that fears are that the Lutheran church, which has around six million baptized members in the country, will see a dramatic drop in membership over the...

    From escaping Iran through the mountains as a Muslim refugee, to surviving domestic abuse and imprisonment in a Turkish prison, to carving out a life in Sweden, Annahita Parsan’s story is the stuff of a Hollywood movie. Parsan, a convert from Islam to Christianity and mother of two, has emerged as one of the most prominent religious figures in Europe, both because of her unlikely geographic and spiritual pilgrimage and her decision to reach out to Muslims with the gospel -- at great personal risk. The former refugee is now the leader of two congregations in Sweden. She not only...
  • Could Western Civilization Be Saved If Most Europeans Converted to Judaism?

    01/16/2017 6:57:13 AM PST · by pinochet · 100 replies
    Israel is the only country in the Western world, where birth rates are above the replacement level of 2 children per woman. Of all Western nations, Israel shows the greatest resistance to cultural suicide. If Europeans do not increase their birth rates, the future of Europe will be Muslim. Judaism is one of the founding cultures of Western civilization, alongside the Ancient Greek and the Ancient Roman cultures. Jews have lived in Europe since 300 BC. The Ancient Greek and Roman cultures died out, but Judaism still survives. Judaism is the longest-lasting culture of Western civilization, having been around for...

    The leaders of the Jewish communities of four Nordic countries said that a bill proposing to ban nonmedical circumcision in Iceland “will guarantee” that no Jewish community is established there. The presidents of the umbrella groups of Jewish communities in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland issued the unusual warning Tuesday in an open letter to all Icelandic lawmakers in reaction to the submission last month of a bill proposing to ban all nonmedical circumcision of boys younger than 18 in Iceland, a Scandinavian island nation of some 300,000 people with a few hundred Jews and Muslims. Lawmakers from four parties...

    "They somehow seem to differentiate between humans and animals but also animals in different categories," Hallgren says. Two of the human skulls were female, four were male, and two belonged to people between the ages of 20 and 35. The researchers also found a nearly complete infant skeleton, whose tiny bones suggest the individual had been stillborn or died shortly after birth. The victims' skulls show obvious injuries. There is blunt force trauma near the tops of the heads, and they also appear to have other injuries that show signs of healing. The female skulls have injuries on the back...

    Muslims in Sweden have applied for permission to broadcast the call to prayer, claiming the move would boost community self-esteem and assist with integration. The Växjö Muslim Foundation submitted an application to the police requesting permission to send out a three-minute Islamic call to prayer each Friday from a loudspeaker attached to the front of a mosque in the city’s Araby district. “We are just wanting Sweden to allow Muslims in Växjö to feel even more at home. The Islamic community should be proud of their culture, and not feel like they have to hide,” said Imam Ismail Abu Helal....

    ..... How adorable that Swedish media, which has been going out of its way to conceal and beautify news about Sweden – migrant rapes and other crimes, for example -- in its news coverage, suddenly and conveniently in election season, pretends to care about whether Swedish voters can access correct information. Correct information has not exactly been a priority until now: Swedish media never reports the ethnicity of rapists, for example, thereby not only making it harder for the public to help locate the perpetrators, but also refusing to depict reality as it is. Swedish media has even covered up...
