Finland Terror Attack: Killer is 18 Year Old Moroccan Asylum Seeker, Victims are Finns, British, Swedes, Italian

Finnish police investigating a mass knife attack in the city of Turku Friday afternoon have said they consider the event a possible terror attack and have made a number of further arrests at private homes and an asylum centre.

An 18-year-old Moroccan male asylum seeker was arrested Friday after having been shot in the leg by a police officer. He is being held on suspicion of murder and a possible terrorist intent.
The suspected killer arrived in Finland last year and was “involved in the asylum seeking process” and lived in an asylum centre in the city of Turku, according to reporting from the police press conference by Finnish broadcaster YLE.
Finnish police released more details about the investigation and incident Saturday morning, including that the two deceased victims are female Finnish citizens aged 15 and 67. Among the eight injured victims are one British, two Swedish, and one Italian citizen.
Police:  attacker chose victims at random. When confronted he ignored a verbal order and was immobilised with a single shot to the leg
Both of those killed were women. Injured: 6 women and 2 men, who'd tried to intervene. Some have serious injuries but not life-threatening.
In addition to the arrest of the suspected killer, a further four individuals have been arrested at private homes and an asylum centre in Finland, and they are reported to be Moroccan citizens. An Interpol arrest warrant has been issued for a fifth wanted man.
Police said the attacker apparently chose his victims at random and when he failed to obey a verbal order from a police officer, he was shot and incapacitated.
A small country of five and a half million inhabitants, Finland is home to very few migrants and the majority of those are Swedish, Russian, and Estonian. While the country took small numbers of refugees during the migrant crisis many left the nation voluntarily, citing the cold weather and boredom as reasons for no longer wishing to remain in the state.

The investigation into the Moroccan suspected terrorist in Finland comes as Spanish police investigate a large, predominantly Moroccan and North African terror cell that launched a deadly attack on Thursday in Barcelona, killing 14.

Muslims Tell Europe: "One Day All This Will Be Ours"

by Giulio Meotti
  • The Archbishop of Strasbourg Luc Ravel, nominated by Pope Francis in February, just declared that "Muslim believers know very well that their fertility is such today, that they call it... the Great Replacement. They tell you in a very calm, very positive way: One day all this, all this will be ours...".
  • Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán just warned against a "Muslimized Europe". According to him, "the question of the upcoming decades is whether Europe will continue to belong to Europeans".
  • "In the coming 30 years, the number of Africans will grow by more than one billion people. That is twice the population of the entire European Union... The demographic pressure will be enormous. Last year, more than 180,000 people crossed in shabby boats from Libya. And this is just the beginning. According to EU Commissioner Avramopoulos, at this very moment, 3 million migrants are waiting to enter Europe". — Geert Wilders, MP, The Netherlands, and leader of the Party for Freedom and Democracy (PVV).
This week, yet another Islamic terrorist attack targeted the Spanish city of Barcelona. As it was for many years under Muslim rule, it is, therefore, like Israel, land which many Islamists believe they are entitled to repossess.
At the same time, far from Spain, elementary schools have been closing, shuttered by the state after the number of children dropped to less than 10% of the population. The government is converting these structures into hospices, providing care for the elderly in a country where 40% of the people are 65 or older. That is not a science-fiction novel. That is Japan, the world's oldest and most sterile nation, where there is a popular expression: "ghost civilization".
According to Japan's National Institute of Population and Social Security Research, by 2040 most of the country's smaller cities will see a dramatic drop of one-third to one-half of their population. Due to a dramatic demographic decrease, many Japanese councils can no longer operate and have been closed. Restaurants have decreased from 850,000 in 1990 to 350,000 today, pointing to a "drying up of vitality". Predictions also suggest that in 15 years, Japan will have 20 million empty houses. Is that also the future of Europe?
Among the experts in demography, there is a tendency to call Europe "the new Japan". Japan, however, is dealing with this demographic catastrophe with its own resources, and banning Muslim immigration to the country.
"Europe is committing demographic suicide, systematically depopulating itself in what British historian Niall Ferguson has called "the greatest sustained reduction in European population since the Black Death in the fourteenth century'", as George Weigel recently noted.
Europe's Muslims appear to be dreaming of filling this vacuum. The Archbishop of Strasbourg, Luc Ravel, nominated by Pope Francis in February, recently declared that "Muslim believers know very well that their fertility is such today, that they call it ... the Great Replacement. They tell you in a very calm, very positive way: 'One day all this, all this will be ours' ...".
A new report by the Italian think tank Centro Machiavelli just revealed that if current trends continue, by 2065 first- and second-generation immigrants will exceed 22 million persons, or more than 40% of Italy's total population. In Germany, as well, 36% of children under the age of five are being born to immigrant parents. In 13 of the 28 EU member countries, more people died than were born last year; without migration, the populations of Germany and Italy are expected to decline by 18% and 16%, respectively.
The impact of demographic free-fall is most visible in what was once called the "new Europe", the countries of the former Soviet bloc such as Poland, Hungary and Slovakia, to distinguish these from the so called "old Europe", France and Germany. Those Eastern countries are now the ones most exposed to the "depopulation bomb", the devastating collapse in birth rate that the current-events analyst and author Mark Steyn has called "the biggest issue of our time".
The New York Times asked why, "despite shrinking population, Eastern Europe resists accepting migrants". The shrinking demography is precisely the reason they fear being replaced by migrants. In addition, much of Eastern Europe has already experienced being occupied by Muslims for hundreds of years under the Ottoman Empire, and are all too well aware what would be in store for them were they to come there again. Aging countries fear the antipathetic values sure to appear if there were a replacement by the current young foreign population.
"There are two distinct views in Europe today to consider [regarding the decline and aging of the population]", Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orbán recently said. "One of these is held by those who want to address Europe's demographic problems through immigration. And there is another view, held by Central Europe – and, within it, Hungary. Our view is that we must solve our demographic problems by relying on our own resources and mobilising our own reserves, and – let us acknowledge it – by renewing ourselves spiritually". Orbán just warned against a "Muslimized Europe". According to him, "the question of the upcoming decades is whether Europe will continue to belong to Europeans".

Africa is also pressing Europe with a demographic time bomb. According to Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders:
"In the coming 30 years, the number of Africans will grow by more than one billion people. That is twice the population of the entire European Union... The demographic pressure will be enormous. One-third of the Africans want to move abroad, and many want to come to Europe. Last year, over 180,000 people crossed in shabby boats from Libya. And this is just the beginning. According to EU Commissioner Avramopoulos, at his very moment, 3 million migrants are waiting to enter Europe".
Eastern Europe is thinning out. Demography has even become a problem for Europe's security. There are fewer people to serve in Europe's military and social welfare posts. The President of Bulgaria, Georgi Parvanov, has, in fact, called on the country's leaders to attend a meeting of the national Consultative Committee entirely devoted to the problem of national security. Once Eastern European countries feared Soviet tanks; now, they fear empty cradles.
The United Nations estimated that there were about 292 million people in Eastern Europe last year, 18 million fewer than in the early 1990s. The number is equivalent to the disappearance of the entire population of the Netherlands.
The Financial Times had called this situation in Eastern Europe "the largest loss of population in modern history". Its population is shrinking as has no other before. Not even the Second World War, with its massacres, deportations and population movements, had come to that abyss.
Orbán's way -- dealing with a demographic decline using the country's own resources -- is the only way for Europe to avoid Archbishop's Ravel's prediction of a "great replacement". Mass immigration will most likely fill those empty cradles -- but Europe will then become also just a becomes a "ghost civilization"; it is just a different kind of suicide.

APPENDIX

Romania will lose 22% of its population by 2050, followed by Moldova (20%), Latvia (19%), Lithuania (17%), Croatia (16%) and Hungary (16%). Romania, Bulgaria and Ukraine are the countries where the population decline will be most severe. Poland's population is estimated to decrease by 2050 to 32 million from the current 38 million. Nearly 200 schools have closed, but there are enough children to fill the remaining ones.
In Central Europe, the proportion of "over 65s" increased by more than one-third between 1990 and 2010. The Hungarian population is at its lowest point in half a century. The number of people fell from 10,709,000 in 1980 to the current 9,986,000 million. In 2050, there will be fewer than 8 million people in Hungary; and one in three will be over the age of 65. Hungary today has a fertility rate of 1.5 children per woman. If you exclude the Roma population, this figure drops to 0.8, the lowest in the world -- the reason Prime Minister Orbán announced new measures to solve the demographic crisis.
Bulgaria will have the fastest population decline in the world between 2015 and 2050. Bulgaria is part of a group that is expected to decrease by more than 15% between 2015 to 2050, along with Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Hungary, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Romania, Serbia and Ukraine. Bulgaria's population of about 7.15 million people is estimated to fall to 5.15 million in 30 years -- a decline of 27.9%.
Official figures show that 178,000 babies were born in Romania. By comparison, in 1990, the first post-Communist year, there were 315,000 births. Croatia last year had 32,000 births, a decline of 20% from 2015. The depopulation of Croatia could come to more than 50,000 people each year.
When the Czech Republic was part of the Communist bloc (as part of Czechoslovakia), its total fertility rate was conveniently close to the replacement rate (2.1). Today it is the fifth most barren country in the world. Slovenia has the highest GDP per capita in Eastern Europe, but an extremely low fertility rate.

Germany: Man gets 6 months jail for posting on Facebook about Nazi/Muslim collaboration

Yes, it’s a historical fact, but it’s politically inconvenient nowadays. And so it’s six months in jail for Michael Stürzenberger.

Sharia Germany investigates Iranian-born politician for “Islamophobia”

Germany authorities do not admit of the possibility that Laleh Hadjimohamadvali might know what she is talking about. They appear to have fully accepted Sharia blasphemy norms, and consider criticism of Islam to be an offense punishable by law.
“Iran-born AfD politician investigated over Islamophobia accusations,” The Local, August 9, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Prosecutors in the southwest German city of Saarbrücken are investigating an Iran-born AfD politician over accusations that she made Islamophobic statements.
A prosecutor’s office spokeswoman said on Wednesday that AfD politician Laleh Hadjimohamadvali – a candidate in the upcoming national elections – is suspected of defamation of religious groups, as well as incitement to hatred.
Hadjimohamadvali was born in Iran and has said that she fled to Germany to get away from Islam in the 1980s after the 1979 Iranian Revolution led to the establishment of an Islamic Republic.
According to the Saarbrücker Zeitung, Hadjimohamadvali said during a party gathering on June 24th that Islam was “worse than the plague” because she said Muslims become stronger in Germany every day and are taking over an ever greater portion of the country.
A former member of the AfD reported the statements to authorities after the Saarbrücker Zeitung reported what she said.
The newspaper further writes that Hadjimohamadvali claims she has been blocked from Facebook multiple times in the past because of her posts….
The leading state candidate for the AfD in the national election, Christian Wirth, has distanced himself from both women, saying that the generalization and denigration of an entire religion is “not permissible”.
“There are also many peaceful Muslims in our country,” Wirth told the Saarbrücker Zeitung….

UK and Spanish Security Forces Focus on North African Migrants, Ringleader on the Run

British and Spanish authorities are now focussing on North Africa and people of migrant background from that region in their efforts to prevent further Islamist attacks, after the atrocity in Barcelona this week.
Younes Abouyaaqoub, the 22-year-old Moroccan suspected ringleader in the van attack that saw 14 tourists mowed down, is still as large as police close in on the remainders of the 12-man jihadist cell.
Spanish Police said last night that they had killed seven suspected terrorists and arrested four more. Most are of North African origin.
Morrocan Moussa Oukabir, 17, is believed to have stolen his brother’s passport to rent the van. Also dead are Said Aallaa, 18, and Mohamed Hychami, 24, Catalan police confirmed on Friday.
Moussa’s brother, a Moroccan national named Driss Oukabir, handed himself into police and denies involvement in the attack.

Security sources in London have now told The Times that their focus had been diverted to scrutinising jihadists from the North Africa region as a threat to British national security.
Resources are being concentrated on potential terrorists from Tunisia, Morocco, and Libya, the source said.
Many of the suspects from this week’s attacks were caught or killed in the town Cambrils, around 70 miles from Barcelona, where they launched their second assault, injuring five.
They included Moussa Oukabir, the prime suspect, and two of his childhood friends whose mug shots were put out by police.
Four more were arrested and two killed in an explosion in Alcanar, 120 miles southwest of Barcelona, where the attack was planned and a suspected bomb factory found.
British spy agencies – MI6, MI5 and GCHQ – are assisting the Spanish and are understood to be part of an international intelligence operation helping to trace the travel and associates of the suspects.
“As much as this is an attack on Spain, it is an attack on Europe. It is a challenge to European security,” a security source told The Times.
Police operation in  for possible terrorist attack.Avoid going out. Stay home, stay safe.
📞 112 📞 091 📞 062
Spanish police yesterday searched two buses in northwest Catalonia in the hunt for any remaining members of the cell. Nothing was found in the searches in Girona and Garrigas, police tweeted.
Police also announced a series of controlled explosions Saturday in the town of Alcanar, south of Barcelona, where the carnage was planned in a rental house.
The house was destroyed a day before the attacks by an apparently accidental blast.
Authorities had initially written off the Wednesday night incident as a household gas accident, but took another look on Friday and returned on Saturday.
Police believe the Wednesday night blast, which killed at least one person and injured one of the people currently in custody, actually prevented a far deadlier attack using explosives, forcing the extremists to use more “rudimentary” vehicles instead.

In a tweet Saturday, Catalan police urged Alcanar residents not to be alarmed by the controlled explosions.

WATCH: Knifeman Shot Dead by Police, Eight in Critical Condition After Russia Mass Stabbing


A knifeman attacked passers-by in Surgut, Russia Saturday morning leaving eight in serious condition. Police shot the assailant dead and are investigating the background of the would-be murderer.

Russian news agency TASS reports police believe the attacker was suffering from a “mental disorder” as he attacked pedestrians apparently at random. Russian police said in a statement: “an unidentified man ran along the city’s central streets and stabbed pedestrians, injuring eight”.
The assailant was shot dead by an attendant police officer.
Surgut, a comparatively large Siberian city 1,700 miles East of Moscow is home to a number of power plants, as well as oil and gas processing plants.
The stabbing comes as security services around the world remain on high alert after a quick succession of knife and vehicle attacks. Spain saw three attacks in quick succession between Thursday and Friday, as radical Islamists drove a van into crowds of people in central Barcelona, killing 14. This was followed by two further vehicle attacks in which only the attackers were killed.
On Friday, Finland saw two killed and several injured after a knife attack which is now being treated as terrorism.

French Terror Expert Claims Spain A ‘Breeding Ground’ for Islamic Extremism

In the wake of the Barcelona terror attack this week French terrorism expert Jean-Charles Brisard has claimed that Spain has become a breeding ground for Islamic radicalisation.

Mr Brisard, president of the Center d’ Analysis of Terrorism (CAT), said that despite there having been no major attacks in Spain since the 2004 Madrid train bombing, Spain has become a haven for radical Islam. “The intensity of the terrorist threat in Spain is real and the country has become a breeding ground for jihadism,” Brisard said in an interview with French paper L’Express.
“Since the attacks in 2004, 700 Islamists have been arrested, including 200 just since 2012,” he said and claimed that Spanish intelligence had tackled and taken down at least 40 Islamist cells. Spain, Brisard said, was also a symbolic battleground for jihadists because of the former Muslim conquests in the 6th century.

The terror expert mentioned that in 2016 the Islamic State had called for attacks in Spain but that only around 200 Spaniards had gone to fight for the terror group in Syria and Iraq, far below the number in France which topped 700.The main areas for radicalisation in Spain, according to Brisard, are Catalonia where the Barcelona attack occurred, and the North African enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla which have seen large flows of migrants in recent years. Earlier this month a thousand migrantsstormed Ceuta carrying sticks and improvised spears.
“Among the 200 Islamists arrested over the last five years, one-third come from Catalonia, which has also been the scene of several anti-terrorist operations,” Brisard said.
The Spanish intelligence services have been tackling Islamist terror plots since the early 2000’s, Brisard said. “The country’s security services are very effective because they have known the existence of the terrorist threat for many years,” he noted.
The Barcelona attack, responsibility for which was claimed by the Islamic State, led to the deaths of 14 people and over 100 injured. Police said that the Islamist’s original plan could have been even deadlier as they planned to set off a butane bomb they wanted to put in a van.
Hours after the attack a second attack occurred in the nearby town of Cambrils in which one woman died after an Audi A3 ploughed through a small crowd of pedestrians. Police were able to neutralise five of the terrorists with one officer killing four radical Islamic terrorists on his own.
