    Summary: 

    A prize-winning French author on trial for calling Islam "the dumbest religion" has denied charges of inciting racial hatred.

  • Summary: 
    • On December 9, for the first time in Dutch history, a court criminalized freedom of expression: The truly heroic Dutch Member of Parliament, Geert Wilders, was found guilty of the "crime" of "hate speech."
    • The death sentence against Salman Rushdie in 1989 by Iran's supreme leader looked unreal. The West did not take it seriously. Since then, however, this fatwa has been assimilated to such an extent that today's threats to free speech come from ourselves. It is now the West that put on trial writers and journalists.
    • The Red Brigades, the Communist terror group which devastated Italy in the 1970s, coined a slogan: "Strike one to educate one hundred." If you target one, you get collective intimidation. This is exactly the effect of these political trials about Islam.
    • "Hate speech" has become a political weapon to dispatch whoever may not agree with you. It is not the right of a democracy to quibble about the content of articles or cartoons. In the West, we paid a high price for the freedom to write them and and read them it. It is not up to those who govern to grant the right of thought and speech.
    • In Europe now, the same iron curtain as in the Soviet era is descending.

    Summary: 

    A girl who reported being raped in 2011 was abused for a further year with agency interventions "ineffective", a serious case review has found. A group of men exercised "total control" over the girl in Keighley with information identifying her as being at risk from harm "not acted on". The review followed the sentencing of 12 men who abused the girl over 13 months in the West Yorkshire town.

    Summary: 

    The findings came as a shock to everyone except the people of Blackburn. Some areas of the town are 95 percent Asian and some shopkeepers have never served a white person. Many locals feel that over a handful of decades Blackburn, and many nearby northern towns, has been sleepwalking to ghettoization, separation and nothing short of a neo-apartheid.

  • Summary: 

    At first glance, the liberal approach to Islam makes no sense whatsoever. Liberalism is generally hostile to Christianity and it particularly seems to dislike anyone who has strong religious convictions that conflict with liberalism. This describes every devout Muslim on the planet. Liberals go on and on endlessly about a war on women and Islam treats women like garbage. In many parts of the Islamic world, women are forced to wear burkas or veils, are given clitoridectomies to take the pleasure out of sex for them, can’t leave the house or drive without a male relative and may be raped or beaten with impunity.

    Summary: 

    This large-scale endeavor to shut up Wilders is a part of an even larger attempt to silence concerns about jihad terror and Sharia supremacism, and how Muslim migration may lead to more of both. The political elites are becoming progressively more authoritarian in service of the Islamic supremacist agenda.

    Summary: 

    Victims say that officers in the borough of Tower Hamlets have ignored or downplayed outbreaks of hate crime, and suppressed evidence implicating Muslims in them, because they fear being accused of racism.The claims come as four Tower Hamlets Muslims were jailed for at least 19 years for attacking a local white teacher who gave religious studies lessons to Muslim girls. The Sunday Telegraph has uncovered more than a dozen other cases in Tower Hamlets where both Muslims and non-Muslims have been threatened or beaten for behaviour deemed to breach fundamentalist “Islamic norms.”

    “Last week Mr Dutton argued the Fraser government had made ‘mistakes’ in parts of its 1970s’ migration program. Challenged in parliament to identify the groups he was referring to, Mr Dutton said ‘of the last 33 people who have been charged with terrorist related offences in this country, 22 are from second- and third-generation Lebanese Muslim backgrounds.'”

    Summary: 

    Mr. President, Members of the Court,

    When I decided to address you here today, by making a final statement in this trial against freedom of speech, many people reacted by telling me it is useless. That you, the court, have already written the sentencing verdict a while ago. That everything indicates that you have already convicted me. And perhaps that is true. Nevertheless, here I am. Because I never give up. And I have a message for you and the Netherlands.

    For centuries, the Netherlands are a symbol of freedom.

  • Summary: 

    Since the decline of Socialism, the major ideological fault line in British politics, insofar as there has been one, has been between, on the one hand, conservativism and, on the other, various forms of liberalism – espoused bynot just the Liberal Democrats, but also in large measure by the Labour Party.

    This ideological divide is of critical importance in the fight against Islamism. I say this because there is a myth that has been propagated by liberals that the only answer to Islamism is liberalism. However, liberalism not only lacks the capacity to counter Islamism and has significantly failed to do so, but is seen by many Islamists as part of the back door by which they can take over and impose Islamic law and government on western society.The reasons for this are not hard to find:

      • Liberalism promotes diversity rather than cohesion. The essence of Liberalism is that diversity is ‘good’, and so should not just be tolerated but actively promoted. The active promotion of diversity by the last government led to various forms of support for Islamist groups that were seeking to pull people away from traditional British values such as freedom of speech and freedom of religion. In other words, it was doing exactly the opposite to community cohesion, which any right-thinking person would understand as encouraging people to adhere to the values that we have historically developed and learned as a nation to cherish – such as democracy, the equality of everyone before the law, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and so forth. All of these are significantly diminished by sharia, which in various aspects treats men and women, Muslims and non Muslims differently. Liberalism’s politically correct promotion of groups perceived to have been historically disadvantaged has led to the strange combination of liberals advocating ,for example, partial implementation of sharia in Britain, while at the same time supporting legislation that diminishes historic rights such as freedom of religion for other groups that political correctness regards less favourably. This was vividly illustrated during the time of the last Labour Government, when the Home Secretary went on the Today programme to argue for freedom of speech for Islamists, while only a few hours later sought to pass legislation restricting the same freedom of speech for Christians.

      Germany

      22/11/2016
      Summary: 

      A German court has ruled that seven Muslim men who formed a Sharia street patrol did not break laws against political uniforms. The group sparked outrage in the western city of Wuppertal in 2014, when they approached people in orange vests bearing the words "Sharia Police". They demanded that locals stop gambling, listening to music, and drinking alcohol.

    2. Summary: 
      • This is the moment where hate speech laws become a greater threat to democracy and freedom of speech than hate speech itself.
      • In France, Muslim terrorists are never Muslim terrorists, but "lunatics," "maniacs" and "youths".
      • To attack freedom of the press and freedom of speech is not anti-hate speech; it is submission.
      • By following these recommendations, the British government would place Muslim organizations in a kind of monopoly position: they would become the only source of information about themselves. It is the perfect totalitarian information order.
      • Created to guard against the kind of xenophobic and anti-Semitic propaganda that gave rise to the Holocaust, national hate speech laws have increasingly been invoked to criminalize speech that is merely deemed insulting to one's race, ethnicity, religion, or nationality.
      • It is disturbing to wonder how long the EU will strongly engage its experts and influence to cut through existing legal obstacles, in a quest to criminalize any type of criticism of Islam, and to submit to the values of jihad.
    3. Summary: 

      Due to its propensity to churn out Muslim terrorists with startling regularity, Luton has become a town plagued by what are commonly referred to nowadays as “religious tensions”.

      The Fertiliser Bomb Plotters, the perpetrators of 7/7, the Stockholm bomber, Al Muhajaroun and a great many other jihadist recruits and would-be terrorists have all used Luton as a base. This is unsurprising when you consider that Luton falls under the jurisdiction of a police force who have repeatedly demonstrated their total and utter incompetence in tackling Muslim extremism, and have otherwise proven their general illiteracy in all things Islamic.

      In an episode of the fly-on-the-wall documentary series 24 Hours in Police Custody, broadcast in May this year, Bedfordshire Police attempted to prosecute a white English woman for a racially motivated hate crime, against another white English woman. Their justification for this was that the words “Muslim” and “terrorist” were used in a derogatory way to describe the victim’s brother – who incidentally is a convicted Muslim terrorist.

      The signal of the index finger held up is, of course, used in myriad contexts, but it has become associated with a declaration of the oneness of Allah and allegiance to the Islamic State. And now we learn that a company linked to Islamic jihadists gave the witless Bedfordshire Police the logo it was using for “Islamophobia Awareness Week.” Coincidence? Unlikely.

    6. Dear…

      Two inquiries in to the use of sharia law in the UK are currently on-going; one such inquiry was ordered by Prime Minister Theresa May when she was Home Secretary, the other a Home Affairs Select Committee inquiry. Given this, the BBC has had cause to cover the issue of sharia law in recent weeks.

      BBC coverage of this topic has been both unbalanced and incomplete, with vital information excluded. Please address the following points.

    7. Summary: 

      Europe is currently seeing the reintroduction of blasphemy laws through both the front and back doors, initiated in a country which once prided itself on being among the first in the world to throw off clerical intrusion into politics.

      By prosecuting Wilders, the courts in Holland are effectively ruling that there is only one correct answer to the question Wilders asked. They are saying that if someone asks you whether you would like more Moroccans or fewer, people must always answer "more," or he will be committing a crime.

      At no point would it occur to me that anyone saying he did not want an endless flow of, say, British people coming into the Netherlands should be prosecuted. Nor would he be.

      The long-term implications for Dutch democracy of criminalising a majority opinion are catastrophic. But the trial of Wilders is also a nakedly political move.

      The Dutch courts are behaving like a religious court. They are trying to regulate public expression and opinion when it comes to the followers of one religion. In so doing they obviously aspire to keep the peace in the short term, but they cannot possibly realise what trouble they are storing up for our future.

    8. Summary: 

      If you thought the public shaming and punishment of people for ridiculing religion was a thing of the past — a dark past when you’d be put in the stocks, or worse, for failing to bend your knee to certain gods and beliefs — then think again. Just look at the treatment of Olympian gymnast Louis Smith. Since a video of him taking the mick out of Islam was leaked in October, he’s been pilloried in the press, pressured to recant his heretical humour, dragged on to TV to repent before the Loose Women (the new guardians of public morality, apparently), and now he’s been suspended from his job for two months. All for having a laugh about a religion. There have been no rotten tomatoes or licking flames, but Smith’s treatment nonetheless echoes that time when ‘blasphemers’ were made to suffer for their thoughts and words.

      In 2012, her situation came to attention of social workers and it was feared she was involved in inappropriate relationships with many older Asian men
      She was found in August in a hotel with condoms, drugs and an Asian man
      Two men, known as LL and MM, were arrested on suspicion of trafficking’

    12. Summary: 

      If an imam violently protests something, the liberal elite always supports the false charge of "Islamophobia." If a peaceful protest is led by a Catholic bishop, the same elite always rejects it under the name of "freedom of expression."

      The "Caliph" of the Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, ridiculed by Charlie Hebdo, triggered self-censorship because of "hate speech," while the work of Chris Ofili "The Holy Virgin Mary," in which the mother of Jesus is covered with feces and images of genitalia, was defended by the New York Times as "free speech." Does this now mean that some religions are more equal than others?

      On Halloween night, only the "Sexy Nun" is available, while "Caliph" Baghdadi can rape his Yazidi and Christian sex slaves with impunity.

In a joint statement, the Hindu Council UK (HCUK), the largest Hindu umbrella body in the country, the Sikh Awareness Society, a leading independent Sikh advisory board, and The Sikh Media Monitoring Group have called for the British government to recognise “the targeting of non-Muslim women” as a specific “hate crime”.

      Is it time to stop using the word "Asian"? In recent weeks Britain's Sikh and Hindu communities have complained angrily about the use of the misleading term in reporting of the Rochdale grooming convictions of men of Muslim Pakistani descent. Headlines like “Asian grooming – why we need to talk about sex crime”, “Child sex grooming: the Asian question”, and “Grooming offences committed mostly by Asian men, says ex-Barnardo's chief” show the problem.

    16. Summary: 

      . Smith has apparently been getting death threats since then. All of which tells us nothing new about the world’s most intolerant religion. But as ever it is the response of our own society that is so bizarre and disturbing. Already Smith’s career looks in jeopardy as various sports authorities are actually seriously looking into banning him from competing because of this non-event. But if you want an even finer distillation of the stupidity, consider the following interview with Smith yesterday on ITV’s ‘Loose Women’ (I know, I don’t normally watch it either). Here, a quartet of women interrogate and berate Smith over his drunken behaviour. He is asked to explain himself and ‘his recent behaviour.’ It is so surreal that it really is worth watching. It begins with a shocked Janet Street-Porter berating Louis Smith for his drunken behaviour and telling him how unacceptable it is. Yes, indeed, Janet Street-Porter tells someone off for coarseness and drunkenness.

    21. Speech given at the Dangerous Words conference in Stockholm, October 2016

      In 2016, we might assume that the most dangerous words we could utter would be words that are critical of Islam – and it would be a fairly safe assumption. To be critical of Islam, or even un-flattering, can result in death at the hands of the state in numerous Islamic countries – including countries from which thousands, if not millions, are now arriving in Europe.
