Winning the War against Islamophobia

The weak sisters of Western Europe refuse to join the fight against Islamist terrorism. They are tormenting themselves over Islamophobia and fighting the good fight against bigotry. Led by French President Macron and German Chancellor Merkel are trying to do business with Iran. 

So, we are within our rights to ask how the war on Islamophobia has been going. Or better, how many lives these politicians are willing to sacrifice on the altar of political correctness.

First case, Mickael Harpon, the Parisian police officer who knifed four of his colleagues to death. As it happened, the New York Times reports, the authorities ignored all signs of imminent terror. Doubtless, they did not want to be accused of being Islamophobic.

So, French weakness costs lives. The Times writes:

When 12 people were killed at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris in January 2015, MickaĆ«l Harpon — a future killer himself — declared, “serves them right.” A shocked colleague in the city’s Police Department heard him, and a sharp argument ensued.

But that was nearly as far as the complaint went. Colleagues of Mr. Harpon, who slashed four co-workers to death last Thursday, preferred “restraint,” a leaked internal police report said, and their bosses never pressed them. That summer, the police appeared to have had a chance to stave off the computer technician’s attack. 

They missed it.

Overlooked warning signs are now at the center of fierce recrimination, finger-pointing and calls for increased vigilance in a country that had half-forgotten the terrorist threat from within and that has suddenly reawakened to it.

A handful of “little gestures” and personal changes might have made Mr. Harpon’s colleagues wary: his refusal to shake women’s hands or to embrace them, and his marriage to a Muslim woman. But instead he was given high-level security clearance, a move that Interior Minister Christophe Castaner was unable to explain to Parliament on Tuesday. But he said that if the warning signs had not risen through the chain of command — which appears to have been the case — “it was a serious dysfunction, a major weakness.”

Meanwhile back in Germany, Chancellor Merkel refuses to label Hezbollah a terrorist organization and has no problem when Iran promises to obliterate the state of Israel.

A short time ago, a Syrian refugee, admitted under Merkel’s open arms policy hijacked a truck and drove it into a bunch of stopped cars.

Germans cannot figure out the motive. No kidding. According to Agence France Presse:

German authorities on Tuesday were investigating the motive of a Syrian man who hijacked an articulated lorry and smashed it into cars stopped at a traffic light in the city of Limburg, injuring several people.

The public prosecutor's office said it had opened an attempted homicide probe against the 32-year-old suspect, whose name was not released.

"The investigation into what was behind the act is ongoing," the prosecutors said in a statement. 

"We cannot comment on the motive in particular -- we are pursuing all leads."
Unconfirmed media reports said the Syrian national arrived with the massive migrant influx to Germany in 2015 and that his residency permit had expired on October 1. 

Today, someone in Germany shot up a synagogue and murdered two people. We do not yet know who committed the crime, and so, we will refrain.

Meanwhile, back in the feminist paradise of Sweden, rape culture has entrenched itself. Large numbers of Swedish women are afraid to go out at night alone.

Now, to no one's surprise, the authorities have discovered that most of the rapists are Muslim migrants. Who could have imagined. This, from Zero Hedge:

According to a new survey, almost a quarter of Swedish women are afraid to leave their homes over fears they will be attacked or sexually assaulted….

Figures released last year found that 58 per cent of convicted rapists and 85 per cent of all convicted assault rapists in Sweden were born outside of Europe.

In cases where the victim did not know the attacker, the proportion of foreign offenders was more than 80 per cent. Nearly 40 per cent of the convicted rapists are from the Middle East or from Africa, areas of the world from which Sweden has accepted large numbers of migrants in recent years.

A study by the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet found that 88 per cent of gang rapists in the Scandinavian country over the last six years have had a migrant background.

Other figures show that migrants from Muslim-majority nations commit 84 per cent of “very violent” rapes in Sweden.

How is the war against Islamophobia going?

Islamophobia has been overcome by Islamophilia. Europe has imported its conquerors.

Arthur Koestler wrote a novel of ideas, 'The Age of Longing', which is concerned with the West's...and particularly Europe's...loss of civilizational self-confidence. The book was published in 1950, so the external threat is Communist imperialism rather than radical and aggressive Islam, but I find it very relevant to our situation today. I urge everyone to read it, or at least read my review: Sleeping with the Enemy

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

Thanks, David, I will read it. Darkness at Noon is indispensable.

The death count has to get much higher for the Europeans to act. Much higher. Just had dinner with 3 of my colleagues from France. They are so weak and effeminate; no way these guys could stand up to anything. Very nice, well educated, generous, and kind, but incapable of action. They are as helpless as women. Surprised they hadn’t heard of “Camp of the Saints” by Raspail. But they knew Lautreamont and Jarry, so that made for good conversation.
