Afghan Migrant Arrested for Rape and Murder of German Medical Student


A 17-year-old Afghan migrant who arrived in Germany as an unaccompanied minor in 2015 has been arrested for the rape and murder of a 19-year-old medical student.

Maria L. was found raped and murdered in Freiberg in mid-October. Following seven weeks of investigation, a 17-year-old migrant, who arrived during the migrant crisis, was arrested on Friday, reports Focus.
“Through interviews and a web-based survey, we were able to reconstruct [Maria’s] final hours,” said David Müller, head of the police’s Special Commission, during a press conference on Saturday.
“The 19-year-old student had been at a party. By 2.37am, she left the party. Maria L. then cycled home, as usual.”
“The young woman had been the victim of a sexual offence and a violent crime.”
According to the chief investigator, Maria was drowned after being raped. Her body was found in the River Dreisam on the 16th of October.
A thorough investigation of the area around the river was undertaken. A striking, long, dark, strand of hair, partially dyed blond, was found in a blackberry bush. A black scarf belonging to the victim was also found in the riverbed.
DNA from the victim linked DNA from the scarf and to that of the long strand of hair. The perpetrator’s DNA did not match any records from the national database, so investigators combed through CCTV footage for three weeks.
On the 30th of November, video footage was found of the migrant, who had a “very conspicuous hairstyle, an undercut hairstyle”, with a portion of his long hair dyed blonde – matching the dye pattern of the hair found at the scene.
On the 2nd of December, the asylum seeker was arrested, and DNA from the Afghan was confirmed to match that of the evidence held by forensic investigators. He is currently being held in custody.

It has not been ascertained whether the 17-year-old Afghan migrant is also a suspect in the murder of Carolin G., who was raped and murdered at the beginning of November while jogging in Endingen.

Were there already long lines of demonstrators carrying lights for Maria ?

Were there already long lines of demonstrators carrying lights for Maria, who could laugh so beautifully? Oh no, sorry I forgot, for Germans can not be mourned, just because of their history. One of the German girls and women which got raped and killed by a so called "refugee", here an Afghan! Shame on Merkel and all her followers, included all parties Germany's...who are ruling together against FREEDOM; PEACE, EQUALITY and the own German people who are paying their salary!

Anti-Hofer Demo Flops after Fewer Protesters Turn up Than Journalists and Police

Few and far between: protesters fail to make an impact (Alex Domanski/Getty Images)

A far-left demonstration against Austrian presidential candidate Norbert Hofer was judged a failure after fewer protesters turned up than journalists and police.

Police estimate that around 100 people attended the “F*ck Hofer – Refugees Welcome” event in Vienna Saturday afternoon. This number compares with 30 to 40 journalists, mainly from foreign media, and 100 police officers, Der Standard reports.

Police spokesman Thomas Keiblinger said 12 to 15 media camera teams attended the demonstration, while officials received media requests from countries as diverse as Japan and the United States.Breitbart London reported this week that over 200 people on had said they would attend the march on Facebook, while a further 800 had expressed an interest.
Mr Hofer’s rival, Green-backed candidate Alexander van der Bellen, had distanced himself from the protest, organised by the far-left group Antifa which is notoriously violent.
Every year, the group attacks police at a conservative-sponsored ball, while more recently it has also put a member of the hipster-right Identitarian movement in a coma after throwing bricks off a roof.
Mr van der Bellen said organising protests against his rival would be “counterproductive” and could lead to more people voting for Mr Hofer.
The protest came a day before Austrians go the polls in the hotly contested presidential election that could see the latest populist victory in Europe.
Mr van der Bellen narrowly beat Mr Hofer in an election earlier this year, but Austria’s Constitutional Court ruled the result invalid due to voting irregularities and ordered a rerun.
Norbert Hofer is running on a Eurosceptic platform opposing mass immigration.
Last month, he also hinted in a BBC interview that he may back a referendum on Austria’s membership of the European Union if the bloc admits Turkey, or if it tries to grab more powers from national governments.
“If the answer to Brexit would be to make a centralised European Union, where the national parliaments are disempowered and where the union is governed like a state. In this case, we would have to hold a referendum in Austria, because it would lead to a constitutional change,” he said.

Two German girls were raped and killed in the same German town

2 German girls were raped and killed in the same German town, Freiburg, and in a short time. The one girl who was raped and killed you can see here on the first photo , they found today finally the rapist and killer. A 17. years old Afghan who came in 2015 as a "teenager" and refugee to Germany and a German family took him warmly as a family member .
That he is only 17 years old, I think is a lie.
He is never never 17 but at least 2 years older or even more! How do I know? I lived with Pashtuns etc. and know that they are normaly 2 years older as written on their passport , but on the way to the west it can also be a bit more "younger" !
He was so grateful that he did not rape and kill the woman or women of the family, but a beautiful young German girl, a student of medicine. I am 100% sure that the other girl was also raped and killed by a so called refugee and in my view it must be really not the same. It is not like it was in Germany before, that there was one sick killer once a time and who did it several times. We are talking here about people who are here to spread their Islam and sick mentality towards women and especially west women. We are talking about men, not only young men, who never learned to have sexual control over themselve when they see a woman, even she wears a burqa. Send them all home and if not: YOU politicians are responsible for each raped and killed German girl, child and woman!

Austrian Minister: ‘It Would Be Fatal to Believe the Migrant Crisis Is Over’

Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz has said that it would be “fatal” to consider the migrant crisis over. He also criticised German Chancellor Angela Merkel over her migrant policy and dominance in the European Union (EU).

Speaking to OVB Online, Foreign Minister Kurz, a staunch critic of Merkel’s migrant policies and who had claimed that Europe had “lost control” of her borders, stated that much had changed in the last year, exclaiming: “Thank God!”
Affirming that the migrant crisis was “not a purely German phenomenon,” he reflected on reaction to his scepticism of the German chancellor’s open-door mass migration policies.
“When I criticised the open borders and insisted that we stop the inflow, I was massively criticised.”
“My position was a minority position that was sharply criticised in the media and was not accepted by the majority of the population at the time.”
“For many things I said, I was scolded a year ago. Now there is applause.”
A vocal critic of Turkey’s accession to the EU, having previously said that “dictatorial” Turkey has no place in the bloc, he affirmed that he does not trust Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to honour the EU-Turkey migrant deal.

Kurz stressed that the continent, instead, needs to secure her external borders in advance of further waves of migrants attempting to enter Europe, noting that even with the EU-Turkey deal in place illegals are still crossing the border daily.“It would be fatal to believe that the crisis has been resolved because there are still thousands of people crossing the external borders every week.”
When asked to respond to criticisms that he was “heartless” for favouring strict migrant policies, Kurz responded that what is worse are “smugglers earning more and more money” and the “drowning of countless [people] in the Mediterranean”.
“We must, therefore, make it clear that anyone who is found illegally crossing Europe is stopped… He has no chance to get to Central Europe. When we do [this], we end the illegal migratory flows, withdraw the trafficking business, and the most important thing, we end the dying.”
Asked whether he thought the “humanitarian imperative” of Chancellor Merkel was related to her desire for “Germany to be on the right side of history this time”, Kurz responded that though he felt many politicians do not have the same sense of historical responsibility as Austria or Germany, “the basic reflex to help had resulted in consequences that many have perhaps not originally considered”.
Alluding to Merkel’s position in the EU, the Austrian foreign minister reflected that “Germany has a very strong role in Europe”, but strong nations need to be “sensitive” in order to not appear to dominate in the bloc.
“To this extent, the strong role of Germany is a very difficult and important task which must be carried out with a delicate touch so that the sense of balance does not tip.”
In reaction to the Austrian Foreign Minister’s comments, Merkel’s CDU party General Peter Tauber hit back and told Die Welt: “The decisive difference [between Kurz and Merkel] is that Angela Merkel has the responsibility not only for Germany, but also for Europe.”
Tauber insisted that Merkel’s open border policy had been right because she had secured the “stability of the Balkans”.
“What would happen if we had actually closed the border and left the countries of the Balkans with the many refugees?” Said the secretary general. “These countries would not have been stable and strong enough to cope with this. Social conflicts can quickly worsen, violence could have occurred.”
However, social conflicts and violence have erupted in Northern Europe including mass sexual assaults and rapes by young migrant men, and terror attacks committed by migrants, following the influx of 1.1 million migrants who entered Germany alone last year.

"Nothing to do with Islam"?

For the first time, a European establishment figure from the Church has spoken out against an argument exonerating ISIS and frequently peddled by Western political and cultural elites. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, speaking in France on November 17, said that dealing with the religiously-motivated violence in Europe
"requires a move away from the argument that has become increasingly popular, which is to say that ISIS is 'nothing to do with Islam'... Until religious leaders stand up and take responsibility for the actions of those who do things in the name of their religion, we will see no resolution."
Archbishop Welby also said that, "It's very difficult to understand the things that impel people to some of the dreadful actions that we have seen over the last few years unless you have some sense of religious literacy".
"Religious literacy" has indeed been in short supply, especially on the European continent. Nevertheless, all over the West, people with little-to-no knowledge of Islam, including political leaders, journalists and opinion makers, have all suddenly become "experts" on Islam and the Quran, assuring everybody that ISIS and other similarly genocidal terrorist groups have nothing to do with the purported "religion of peace," Islam.
It is therefore striking finally to hear a voice from the establishment, especially a man of the Church, oppose, however cautiously, this curiously uniform (and stupefyingly uninformed) view of Islam. Until now, establishment Churches, despite the atrocities committed against Christians by Muslims, have been exceedingly busy only with so-called "inter-faith dialogue." Pope Francis has even castigated Europeans for not being even more accommodating towards the migrants who have overwhelmed the continent, asking Europeans:
"What has happened to you, the Europe of humanism, the champion of human rights, democracy and freedom?... the mother of great men and women who upheld, and even sacrificed their lives for, the dignity of their brothers and sisters?"
(Perhaps the Pope, before rhetorically asking Europeans to sacrifice their lives for their migrant "brothers and sisters" should ask himself whether many of the Muslim migrants in Europe consider Europeans their "brothers and sisters"?)
A statement on Islam is especially significant coming from the Archbishop of Canterbury, the senior bishop and principal leader of the Anglican Church and the symbolic head of the Anglican Communion, which stands at around 85 million members worldwide, the third-largest communion in the world.
Only a year ago, commenting on the Paris massacres, the Archbishop followed conventional politically correct orthodoxy, pontificating that, "The perversion of faith is one of the most desperate aspects of our world today." He explained that Islamic State terrorists have distorted their faith to the extent that they believe they are glorifying their God. Since then, he has clearly changed his mind.
Can one expect other Church leaders and political figures to heed Archbishop Welby's words, or will they be conveniently overlooked? Western leaders have noticeably practiced selective hearing for many years and ignored truths that did not fit the "narrative" politicians apparently wished to imagine, especially when spoken by actual experts on Islam. When, in November 2015, Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah Nasr, a scholar of Islamic law and graduate of Egypt's Al Azhar University, explained why the prestigious institution, which educates mainstream Islamic scholars, refused to denounce ISIS as un-Islamic, none of them was listening:
"The Islamic State is a byproduct of Al Azhar's programs. So can Al Azhar denounce itself as un-Islamic? Al Azhar says there must be a caliphate and that it is an obligation for the Muslim world. Al Azhar teaches the law of apostasy and killing the apostate. Al Azhar is hostile towards religious minorities, and teaches things like not building churches, etc. Al Azhar upholds the institution of jizya [extracting tribute from non-Muslims]. Al Azhar teaches stoning people. So can Al Azhar denounce itself as un-Islamic?"
Nor did Western leaders listen when The Atlantic, hardly an anti-establishment periodical, published a study by Graeme Wood, who researched the Islamic State and its ideology in depth. He spoke to members of the Islamic State and Islamic State recruiters and concluded:
"The reality is that the Islamic State is Islamic. Very Islamic. Yes, it has attracted psychopaths and adventure seekers, drawn largely from the disaffected populations of the Middle East and Europe. But the religion preached by its most ardent followers derives from coherent and even learned interpretations of Islam".
In the United States, another establishment figure, Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee and Donald Trump's incoming White House Chief of Staff, recently made statements to the same effect as the Archbishop of Canterbury. "Clearly there are some aspects of that faith that are problematic and we know them; we've seen it," Priebus said when asked to comment on incoming National Security Adviser former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn's view that Islam is a political ideology that hides behind being a religion.
In much of American society, Flynn's view that Islam is a political ideology is considered controversial, despite the fact that the political and military doctrines of Islam, succinctly summarized in the concept of jihad, are codified in Islamic law, sharia, as found in the Quran and the hadiths. The jihadists who carry out terrorist attacks in the service of ISIS, for example, are merely following the commands in the Quran, both 9:5, "Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them..." and Quran 8:39, "So fight them until there is no more fitna [strife] and all submit to the religion of Allah."
The question becomes, then, whether other establishment figures will also acknowledge what someone like Archbishop Welby -- and Egypt's extraordinary President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi -- has finally had the courage to say in public: that if one insists on remaining "religiously illiterate," it is impossible to solve the problem of religiously motivated violence.

Italians to Vote on Referendum with Massive Potential Consquences

Italians will vote on a referendum for reforming the senate on Sunday, but the implications for a loss could collapse the Italian government and threaten the Eurozone.

The Italian referendum on Sunday, December 4th, is at face value a vote on constitutional reform of the senate that would limit the power of the upper house of parliament to veto bills, among other proposed amendments to the constitution.
Critics see the move as an authoritarian one by Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, who has staked the fate of his ruling coalition government on the result. Renzi claims that the reforms are needed to end the traditionally chaotic system of government since the end of the Second World War which has led to dozens of ruling coalitions rising and falling.
The reform would, in practice, dramatically shrink the number of senators from 315 to 100, strip away its powers over the national budget, force the body to focus on regional, rather than national, issues, and make it unable to dissolve the parliament.
Opposition to the reforms, which include a list of over 50 legal scholars, say that the reforms will remove checks and balances of the Italian democratic system. Some have even warned it would create a system ideal for another figure like Benito Mussolini to emerge.
Prime Minister Renzi has staked his government on the result saying that he will resign if the No campaign wins. Earlier this week, he said he regretted making the referendum a vote about him personally – rather than the issues – as polls have shifted from a pro-Yes vote in the early days of the campaign to a pro-No vote.
The prospect of a new election would, according to polls, likely lead to the victory of the Five Star Movement (M5S) and its leader Beppe Grillo who support the No campaign.
The Eurosceptic party has some worried that the No vote could affect the stability of the European Union (EU) itself as Grillo supports a referendum on Italy’s membership in the euro currency. Analysts at Citi Bank have called the potential result the biggest threat to the EU since Brexit.

The instability of government would also come at a time when the Italian banking system is facing a crisis. Italy’s oldest bank, Banco Monte dei Paschi di Siena (MPS), faces billions in bad debt and is unable to be bailed out by the Italian government due to EU regulation. Instability could, as some analysts predict, lead to capital flight by private investors which could collapse the bank and lead to a potential existential crisis for the euro.

Wikileaks bombshell could DESTROY Merkel's plans for EU domination, Julian Assange warns

A TROVE of WikiLeaks documents revealing the true scale of cooperation between the German and US spy agencies risks derailing Angela Merkel's hopes of dominating the EU, Julian Assange has warned.A 90GB cache containing almost 2,500 top-secret documents, now made public by the whistleblowing website, sheds light on the murky relationship between Germany's Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) and America's National Security Agency (NSA). Amongst them are administrative documents, correspondence, agreements and press reactions, WikiLeaks said. The leaked files were submitted to a German parliamentary inquiry into the surveillance activities of the BND foreign intelligence agency and its US counterpart last year.WikiLeaks said its revelations of NSA spying on Angela Merkel and other top German, French and EU officials helped bring about the inquiry. Commenting on the latest release of classified papers, Assange claimed they could derail Germany's ascendancy within the EU. He said: "This substantial body of evidence proves that the inquiry has been using documents from Mr [Edward] Snowden and yet it has been too cowardly to permit him to testify. "Germany can not take a leadership role within the EU if it's own parliamentary processes are subservient to the wishes of a non EU state."WikiLeaks revealed in 2015 how the NSA had spied on Germany, and how Germany's own BND intelligence agency had cooperated with the NSA to spy on officials and companies elsewhere in Europe. Subsequent revelations alleged to show how the US spy agency was also snooping on former French presidents Jacques Chirac and Nicolas Sarkozy as well as incumbent Francois Hollande.WikiLeaks' latest statement added: "Whilst a number of facts have already come to light as a result of the inquiry including WikiLeaks' publication of inquiry transcripts last year this substantial new collection of primary source documents provides significant new evidence."The collection contains early agreements between the BND and the NSA and internal processes at the BND, but also more recent details on the close collaboration between the two agencies. "For example, one document from the BND states that a BND employee will be tasked to use and write software for XKeyscore, an NSA system for searching and analysing data collected through mass surveillance. "A number of the documents show how intelligence agencies find ways to work around their own government."

On Sunday Austria To Choose Between Globalism or Populism

On Sunday the people of Austria will vote one again for the new President of the country and the choice has come down to an anti-mass migration populist and a left wing globalist.

This year’s Austrian presidential election has been the longest in the history of Austria’s second republic and is finally coming to an end on Sunday after controversy and scandal. The Austrian voters have two choices for their new head of state, the anti-mass migration populist Norbert Hofer of the Freedom Party or the Left wing pro-European Union candidate Alexander Van der Bellen.
The first round of the election in April saw a massive shake up in the Austrian political scene as Mr. Hofer won the vote with Van der Bellen coming in second. The election was notable for excluding the two establishment parties, the Austrian People’s Party and the Socialist Party from the second round.
The second round a month later was too close to call on election night with a slight lead for Norbert Hofer. After the counting of the postal votes, Alexander Van der Bellen was proclaimed President by a mere 31,000 votes. The victory was not to last as investigations and inquiries from the FPÖ showed serious discrepancies regarding the counting and handling of the postal ballots and the vote was annulled by the courts.
Though the initial rerun of the was scheduled for October 2nd, the same day as the Hungarian migrant referendum, faulty postal ballot envelopes delayed the vote until this Sunday, December 4th.
The two candidates are the most apart on ideas of any recent Austrian election. Norbert Hofer is running on a platform for securing Austria’s borders, improving the readiness of Austrian authorities regarding terrorism, liberalization of the economy, and pro-gun legislation. Hofer’s ideas have attracted a slew of new voters for the Freedom Party including many working class men and women who have traditionally voted socialist.
Hofer has also expressed interest in re-engaging with Russia, supporting U.S. president-elect Donald Trump’s willingness to resume better relations with the nuclear power. He has also expressed an interest in Austria joining the Visegrad Group (V4), which includes Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and the  Czech Republic. The group has been notable for having a firm stance against the redistribution of migrants and has supported the reinforcement of the political bloc’s external borders.
His opponent Alexander Van der Bellen is an ex-leader of the left-wing Green Party and a former professor. Mr. Van der Bellen is pro-European Union and wants to see more federalisation, which critics have said will lead to Austria becoming merely a region of a centralized EU. Van der Bellen has also vowed not to allow the FPÖ to form the government even if they win the most votes in the next Austrian federal election.
Despite Van der Bellen’s campaign posters which highlight his patriotism for the Austrian countryside many have criticized him for presiding over a Green Party campaign in 2007 that claimed, “anyone who loves Austria is Sh*t.”

Currently, polls are too close to call the race between the pair, but bookmakers have placed their money behind a victory for Norbert Hofer and an extremist left-wing march Saturday could, according to critics of the march, give even more votes to Hofer.

Anti Mass Migration Populist Hofer Is Bookmaker Favourite to Win Austrian Elections Sunday

Bookmakers in Austria are putting their money on the line giving anti-mass migration Freedom Party presidential candidate Norbert Hofer the best odds to win Sunday’s election.

The current polls for the re-run of the Austrian presidential election between anti-mass migration Freedom Party candidate Norbert Hofer and his rival left-wing ex-Green party leader Alexander Van der Bellen have become extremely close in the days before Sunday’s election. One group, however, are claiming a favourite in the race as bookies across Austria are giving the odds to Norbert Hofer to achieve victory on Sunday reports Kleine Zeitung.
Sports betting site Interwetten gives the odds of victory to Norbert Hofer with a 1.5 payout on a single bet, while Alexander Van der Bellen has a 2.5 payout on the single bet. Another site located in the UK, Bet-at-home, gives a similar scenario with Hofer on 1.5 and Van der Bellen on 2.4 payout on victory.
Betting sites and bookmakers have become a force in politics as many of the polls that have predicted wins for the Remain campaign in the Brexit vote and an overwhelming victory for Hillary Clinton in the U.S. presidential race, failed to manifest themselves. In the case of the Brexit vote, even the bookmakers proved to be wrong in their predictions as they gave the Leave campaign 3.65 odds only days before the referendum.
During the Brexit campaign, the odds did not deter former UKIP leader Nigel Farage who bet £1,000 on Brexit and ultimately won a few thousand pounds after the result.
The Austrian election on Sunday is a repeat of the second round of the presidential election that took place back in May. In May many polls predicted a tight race between the two candidates and many were shocked when the race came down to a difference of a mere 31,000 votes that tipped the balance in Mr. Van der Bellen’s favour after postal ballots were counted.
The postal ballots have become a bone of contention and controversy since the result in May as it was discovered that there were several instances of people given access to them during counting who should not have been. The resulting controversy led to the Austrian court to rule the vote invalid and a problem with the glue on the postal ballots delayed the election even further.

With only days before the vote and tight polling, there is uncertainty regarding who will win, but a left wing extremist march planned for the day before the vote has some speculating that violence on the part of the protesters could tip the balance for Mr. Hofer.

Self-Censorship: Free Society vs. Fear Society

In the summer of 2005, the Danish artist Kåre Bluitgen, when he met a journalist from the Ritzaus Bureau news agency, said he was unable to find anyone willing to illustrate his book on Mohammed, the prophet of Islam. Three illustrators he contacted, Bluitgen said, were too scared. A few months later, Bluitgen reported that he had found someone willing to illustrate his book, but only on the condition of anonymity.
Like most Danish newspapers, Jyllands-Posten decided to publish an article about Bluitgen's case. To test the state of freedom of expression, Flemming Rose, Jyllands-Posten's cultural editor at the time, called twelve cartoonists, and offered them $160 each to draw a caricature of Mohammed. What then happened is a well-known, chilling story.
In the wave of Islamist violence against the cartoons, at least two hundred people were killed. Danish products vanished from shelves in Bahrain, Qatar, Yemen, Oman, the UAE and Lebanon. Masked gunmen stormed the offices of the European Union in Gaza and warned Danes and Norwegians to leave within 48 hours. In the Libyan city of Benghazi, protesters set fire to the Italian consulate. Political Islam understood what was being achieved and raised the stakes; the West did not.
An Islamic fatwa also forever changed Flemming Rose's life. In an Islamic caricature, his head was put on a pike. The Taliban offered a bounty to anyone who would kill him. Rose's office at the newspaper was repeatedly evacuated for bomb threats. And Rose's name and face entered ISIS's blacklist, along with that of the murdered editor of Charlie Hebdo, Stéphane Charbonnier.
Less known is the "white fatwa" that the journalistic class imposed on Rose. This brave Danish journalist reveals it in a recently published book, "De Besatte" ("The Obsessed"). "It is the story of how fear devours souls, friendships and the professional community," says Rose. The book reveals how his own newspaper forced Rose to surrender.
"The drama and the tragedy is that the only ones to win are the jihadists," Flemming Rose told the Danish newspaper Weekendavisen.
The CEO of Jyllands-PostenJørgen Ejbøl, summoned Rose to his office, and asked, "You have grandchildren, do not you think about them?"
The company that publishes his newspaper, JP/Politikens Hus, said: "It's not about Rose, but the safety of two thousand employees."
Jorn Mikkelsen, Rose's former director, and the newspaper's business heads, obliged him to sign a nine-point diktat, in which the Danish journalist accepted, among other demands, "not participating in radio and television programs", "not attending conferences", "not commenting on religious issues", "not writing about the Organization of the Islamic Conference" and "not commenting on the cartoons".
Rose signed this letter of surrender during the harshest time for the newspaper, when, in 2010-2011, there were countless attempts on his life by terrorists, and also attempts on the life of Kurt Westergaard, illustrator of a cartoon (Mohammed with a bomb in his turban) that was burned in public squares across the Arab world. Westergaard was then placed on "indefinite leave" by Jyllands-Posten "for security reasons."In his book, Rose also reveals that two articles were censored by his newspaper, along with an outburst from the CEO of the company, Lars Munch: "You have to stop, you're obsessed, on the fourth floor there are people who ask 'can't he stop?'".
Rose then drew more wrath from his managers when he agreed to participate in a conference with the equally targeted Dutch parliamentarian, Geert Wilders, who at this moment is on trial in the Netherlands for "hate speech." Rose writes:
He starts yelling at me, "Why the f*ck did you say yes to appear on stage with this terrorist target, are you stupid? Do you have a secret death wish? You have grandchildren now. Are you completely out of your mind? It's okay if you want to die yourself, but why are you taking the company though all this?"
Jyllands-Posten also pressured Rose when he decided to write a book about the cartoons, "Hymne til Friheden" ("Hymn to Freedom"). His editor told him that the newspaper would "curb the harmful effects" of the book by keeping its publication as low-key as possible. Rose was then threatened with dismissal if he did not cancel two debates for the tenth anniversary of the Mohammed cartoons (Rose, in fact, did not show up that day at a conference in Copenhagen).
After the 2015 massacre at Charlie Hebdo, Rose, no longer willing to abide by the "diktat" he was ordered to sign, resigned as the head of the foreign desk of Jyllands-Posten, and now works in the U.S. for the Cato Institute think-tank. The former editor of Jyllands-PostenCarsten Juste, who was also blacklisted by ISIS, confirmed Rose's allegations.
Rose writes in the conclusion of his book: "I'm not obsessed with anything. The fanatics are those who want to attack us, and the possessed are my former bosses at Jyllands-Posten."
Rose's revelations confirm another familiar story: Jyllands-Posten's surrender to fear. Since 2006, each time its editors and publishers were asked if they still would have published the drawings of Mohammed, the answer has always been "no." This response means that the editors had effectively tasked Rose with writing the newspaper for fanatics and terrorists thousands of kilometers away. Even after the January 7, 2015 massacre at the weekly Charlie Hebdo in Paris, targeted precisely because it had republished the Danish cartoons, Jyllands-Posten announced that, out of fear, it would not republish the cartoons:
"We have lived with the fear of a terrorist attack for nine years, and yes, that is the explanation why we do not reprint the cartoons, whether it be our own or Charlie Hebdo's. We are also aware that we therefore bow to violence and intimidation."
A Danish comedian, Anders Matthesen, said that the newspaper and the cartoons were to blame for the Islamist violence -- the same official position as the entire European political and journalistic mainstream.
A year ago, for the 10th anniversary of the affair, instead of the cartoons, Jyllands-Posten came out with twelve white spaces. These white spaces represent what Rose, in his previous book, called "Tavshedens tiranni" ("The Tyranny of Silence"). Naser Khader, a liberal Muslim of Syrian origin who lives in Denmark, wrote:
"I do not blame them that they care about the safety of employees. I have bodyguards 24 hours a day. However, I believe that we must stand firm. If Flemming shuts his mouth, democracy will be lost."
Is democracy lost? The headquarters of Jyllands-Posten today has a barbed-wire fence two meters high and one kilometer long, a door with double lock (as in banks), and employees can only enter one at a time by typing in a personal code (a measure that did not protect Charlie Hebdo). Meanwhile, the former editor, Carsten Juste, has withdrawn from journalism; Kurt Westergaard lives in hiding in a fortress, and Flemming Rose, like Ayaan Hirsi Ali, fled to the United States.
Much, certainly, looks lost. "We are not living in a 'free society' anymore, but in a 'fear society'", Rose has said.

Austria To Ban Migrants From Buying Guns

The Austrian government is set to amend the laws which govern the use and possession of firearms so that illegal immigrants and asylum seekers will no longer have access to purchasing them.

The new changes to the extant amendment to the Weapons Act, which was approved Thursday by the Internal Committee of the National Council prohibits asylum seekers and migrants living in Austria illegally from access to firearms. The bill, which will take effect in March of next year, also looks to manage the use of arms by security agencies and police, a press release from the government stated.
The amendment will not only prohibit illegal migrants and asylum seekers from procuring weapons but also looks to ban legal migrants and accepted refugees until a residency period of five years has passed. Those who have European Union citizenship are not affected by the new law, nor are tourists.
Any asylum seekers or illegals who attempt to purchase firearms from registered gun sellers could face charges of a year in prison. The sentence for the unauthorized possession of illegal arms has also doubled to two years in prison for anyone breaking the law. The authorities have also announced they will tackle the sales of illegal firearms on the “dark web” with violators facing sentences of three years.
Police in Austria will now be allowed to purchase guns up to 9mm calibre without having to apply for a private license to do so. The anti-mass migration Freedom Party (FPÖ) have welcomed the move toward liberalization of the gun laws but has requested police not be limited to only 9mm pistols. FPÖ MP Christoph Hagen argued that police didn’t need to take separate tests because their reliability should have been tested when they became police officers.
Mr. Hagen also voiced his opinion that the liberalization of firearms was a step in the right direction for Austria and that every legal citizen in the country should own a firearm.
Austria is one of the few countries in Europe which allows citizens to purchase firearms for the purposes of self-defence. Gun ownership in the country has risen significantly during the uncertainty of the migrant crisis with shotguns being sold out only months into the start of the crisis last October.

Neighbouring Germany is also cracking down on gun ownership as Justice Minister Heiko Maas announced this week that the government would be looking to confiscate guns from a sect of German citizens who regard the post-World War Two constitution as invalid. Mr. Maas has proposed that any persons wishing to buy guns in Germany should be made to sign an oath of loyalty to the constitution.

Study: Migrants Insulating Themselves From European Culture, Not Integrating

Migrant communities in Germany, especially those in poverty, are becoming more insular and rejecting western society and values in larger numbers according to a new study.

The biggest challenge of the migrant crisis has been the ability of the German government to properly integrate migrants from the Middle East, North Africa and elsewhere into German society. A new study by the German Association for Housing and Urban Development (VHW)  shows that migrants, especially those of a lower income bracket, are becoming less integrated and some outright reject the culture of Germany entirely reports Die Welt.
The study, named “immigrant worlds in Germany 2016,” looks at migrants within the major cities and municipalities of the country  shows that many migrant groups are choosing to isolate themselves rather than establish links with those of other backgrounds. Bernd Hallenberg, who works for the VHW, said, “The migrant milieus are developing apart,” noting that many migrant communities retreat into themselves on a social and cultural level.
The study shows a trend of migrants, who once saw themselves as Germans, identifying more with the ethnic and cultural background of their origin. A similar study was carried out in 2008 by the VHW that when compared to the current study shows a large shift toward isolation, rather than integration.
One person who was questioned as a part of the study even said, “We are not Germans, we are now Turks,” and added, “my friends are mostly religious and mostly foreigners, not just Turks. I believe we have more common things with them than with Germans.”
The study questioned 80 people who had come to Germany by the end of 2014, a further 40 who had come to German from the period of 2008 to 2014 and 40 asylum seekers who had come to Germany over the course of the migrant crisis since 2015.
Germany is set to spend billions on the integration of new migrants per year, but if the VHW study is any indication, the money may be largely wasted.  Some academics have urged the German government to take a radically different approach and encourage the further ghettoization of migrant groups.
Sociologist Annette Treibel believes that it is Germans who should  integrate into migrant cultures to make the newcomers feel more welcome. Similar proposals have been made by other academics who see the idea of an overarching German culture as  “proto-fascist” notion. They have called for mandatory Arabic lessons for Germans in the public education system.

An even more radical proposal was made by Salafist expert and Green party member Kurt Edler who said that Syrian asylum seekers shouldn’t be expected to integrate into German society and should instead be given their own city, which he called a “New Aleppo.”

EU to make anti-Brussels protest a CRIME: Fears over euro elite crackdown on 'dissent'

SINISTER plans to criminalise “political dissent” against the EU project took a step closer to becoming reality today, prompting a dismayed response from free speech campaigners. Human rights groups have reacted with horror after EU member states approved draconian new anti-terror laws which critics have warned could be used to suppress eurosceptic movements by force. In a rare show of universal anger seven leading civil rights movements tore into unelected Brussels bureaucrats over the shadowy plot, warning that it endangers “fundamental rights and freedoms” including the right to protest. The new EU Directive on Combatting Terrorism has sparked concern and consternation across the globe due to its incredibly vague definition of what constitutes a terror offence. Leading lawyers and campaigners have warned that it could easily be used to mercilessly crack down on eurosceptic movements and thwart protest against controversial EU initiatives. Worry about the draconian new law is running so high that seven top human rights groups have penned an open letter to the European Union urging them to reconsider it. Amnesty International, the European Network Against Racism (ENAR), European Digital Rights (EDRi), the Fundamental Rights European Experts (FREE) Group, Human Rights Watch, the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), and the Open Society Foundations (OSF) all called for the legislation to be comprehensively amended or else scrapped altogether. They voiced concern that, in its current form, the law could “lead to criminalising public protests and other peaceful acts, to the suppression of freedom of expression protected under international law, including expression of dissenting political views, and to other unjustified limitations on human rights”. The directive, which will become law in Britain until we leave the EU, is so vaguely worded that terrorist offences include "seriously destabilising" a whole set of EU structures from the "political" to "economic". Amongst the powerful measures contained in the bill is a measure, borrowed from recent laws in France, that allows Brussels to order internet firms to block sites that "glorify" terrorism without any input from judges. Critics have warned that the definition of terrorism is so vague that the law could easily be used to take down eurosceptic blogs and websites which are critical of the EU project. Last month in France, where the measure was first coined, telecoms giant Orange was ordered to shut down Google and Wikipedia for an entire morning, with Internet users being directed to a French interior ministry website, where their IP addresses were then recorded by the authorities. And the extent of the powers included in the bill is not even known, because the full text of it has not yet been made public. It will only become common knowledge after the law has been voted through the EU parliament later this month. Nadim Houry, director of the terrorism and counterterrorism programme at Human Rights Watch, said: “States should effectively address the threat of terrorism. But the EU has rushed to agree on a vaguely worded counterterrorism law that endangers fundamental rights and freedoms. “Time and again we’ve seen governments adopt abusive counterterrorism laws without assessing their effectiveness, and then implement them in ways that divide and alienate communities. We worry this directive will reinforce this trend and leaves too much leeway for governments to misuse the directive to violate rights.” Meanwhile Adrienne Charmet, from the Paris-based digital rights NGO La Quadrature du Net, said that whilst the legislation may have good intentions, there are no safeguards in place to stop it being abused. She said: "There is no list of blocked sites and there is no right of appeal until pretty much after the fact. "Once we start accepting this type of blocking, it is difficult to stop expanding it to other subjects. "It is used to detain or imprison individuals without any proof of them being dangerous or being radicalised.” France has already imprisoned around 20 people since passing a law in June that makes it a crime to visit a “terrorist website”, as defined by secret Government authorities. French investigative journalist David Thomson, who frequently researches Islamist extremism as part of his work, has had his Facebook account blocked several times whilst reading up about jihadism. And Marloes van Noorloos, assistant professor of criminal law at Tilburg University in the Netherlands, observed that "any glorifying remark you could make about Nelson Mandela or Che Guevara, in principle, it is part of the definition". The law has been brought in as Europe tries to clamp down on a growing terrorist threat, with France, Germany and Belgium all having suffered Islamist attacks in the last 18 months.

French Socialist Who Sought 75% Tax Rate Won't Run for Re-Election

France won't have Francois Hollande, with his mixed message name, failed 75% tax and bizarre affairs, to kick around anymore. The French loved Hollande almost as much as ketchup and so he has decided not to attempt to win an unnwinable race that would only drag his fellow Socialists down with him. The little leftist clown has left the building.
French President Francois Hollande said he won’t run for re-election, stunning the nation and opening the way for his more popular prime minister to enter the 2017 presidential race.
Hollande made the announcement in a televised address on Thursday evening, saying that his lack of support opened the country to the risk of extremist movements. He becomes the first president since the Fifth Republic began in 1958 not to seek re-election.
While Hollande didn’t say who should represent the Socialist Party in next year’s election, the move potentially clears the path for Prime Minister Manuel Valls, who has said he’d run if the president decided against a bid.
 While Valls is a far better candidate than Hollande, the fundamental problems remain. Even without touching on the economics (regardless of names, every likely French candidate, even from the right, is a Socialist by our standards) the core problem of Islam is at the heart of France's malaise from violence to terrorism to poverty zones to lack of integration. Valls has been good when it comes to rhetoric, but so was Sarkozy. Rhetoric and reality are not the same thing. France requires serious measures to save the Republic. And that means major changes to immigration and deportation policies.

Centuries Old Winter Tradition Disappearing Because it’s Too Swedish


A Swedish cultural tradition celebrated for hundreds of years, the annual candlelit Lucia procession, is dying out across Sweden several news outlets have reported.

The two main causes for declining interest in the “very Swedish”, Christian tradition is due to a more ‘outward-looking’ young generation, and that the procession is deemed insufficiently inclusive of migrants.
Uddevalla, Södertälje, Koping, Umeå, and Ystad are this year among the growing numbers of cities and towns no longer holding the iconic cultural tradition, which has been celebrated in the same manner since at least the 18th century.
Lucia festivities are one of the foremost cultural traditions in Sweden, with carol songs that make reference to peasant communities of old, darkness and light, and cold and warmth.
Schools, towns, and villages choose a girl to play St Lucia, a Christian martyr who was said to secretly bring food to persecuted Christians in Rome, and wore candles on her head. A national Lucia is also chosen along with regional ones, who visit hospitals and old people’s homes to sing.
Jonas Engman, an ethnologist at the Nordic Museum, said declining interest in the Lucia procession accompanies a more general alienation with traditional Swedish culture.
“Lucia is seen as a very Swedish tradition. Young people today have greater focus on [things happening] outside of Sweden and the Internet. So the Lucia [procession] is not seen as important.”
Due to its Swedish nature, Engman suggested the festival feels unwelcoming to migrants and people of migrant backgrounds.
“Is the image of Lucia to be a blonde woman? It’s a picture of what Swedishness is, that many people do not recognise in themselves. If you feel you do not fit into the picture, it is easy to feel less welcome to participate,” he told Aftonbladet.
Engman said he thinks the tradition will stay alive due to it being “so strongly associated with Christmas”. But “all traditions are changing, and maybe we’ll see a broader picture of what Lucia may be in the future”, the ethnologist added.
Martin Olsson, the organist at St. Ragnhilds Church, where Lucia candidates practiced, said festivities in Södertälje have had to be called off this year due to a rapid decline in interest in the role over the past few years.
Recalling how just a few years ago there were 40 candidates vying to be Lucia, the organist speculated that schools fail to foster interest in the tradition.
“This applies to [interest in] all of Swedish music and I think it is a combination of different things. We do not see as many Lucia processions in kindergartens, and we have fewer hours of instruction in music.
“If you do not get involved in something from childhood, why would one want to do it later in life?” Olsson asked.
Former Lucia Elin Gustafsson, disappointed that festivities in Uddevalla this year were cancelled due to lack of interest in the role, suggested this is because the procession is “associated with classical music and choral singing, which is not so popular today”.
Annika Nylén Nilsson said the Maria chain of preschools, in Södermalm, will hold festivals of light rather than Lucia processions.
This is because the traditional Lucia procession “has not been a celebration for all children”, the deputy director of the seven municipal kindergartens said.
Some parents didn’t want to provide their child with a Christmas hat and a white nightgown for the procession so the chain has now dropped Lucia festivities. Instead, a “lights festival” will take place, with refreshments for the childrens’ families.

“That families no longer need to bring things from home means that all children have equal opportunities and so the celebrations will be the same for everyone,” Nylén Nilsson explained.
