An immortal poem, which Kipling first published in the pamphlet Three Poems (1911), The Roman Centurion's Song:

Legate, I had the news last night --my cohort ordered home
By ships to Portus Itius and thence by road to Rome.
I've marched the companies aboard, the arms are stowed below:
Now let another take my sword. Command me not to go!

I've served in Britain forty years, from Vectis to the Wall,
I have none other home than this, nor any life at all.
Last night I did not understand, but, now the hour draws near
That calls me to my native land, I feel that land is here.

Here where men say my name was made, here where my work
was done;
Here where my dearest dead are laid--my wife--my wife and
Here where time, custom, grief and toil, age, memory, service,
Have rooted me in British soil. Ah, how can I remove?

For me this land, that sea, these airs, those folk and fields surffice.
What purple Southern pomp can match our changeful Northern
Black with December snows unshed or pearled with August
The clanging arch of steel-grey March, or June's long-lighted

 photo kipling_zpstiajmcke.jpgYou'll follow widening Rhodanus till vine an olive lean
Aslant before the sunny breeze that sweeps Nemausus clean
To Arelate's triple gate; but let me linger on,
Here where our stiff-necked British oaks confront Euroclydon!

You'll take the old Aurelian Road through shore-descending
Where, blue as any peacock's neck, the Tyrrhene Ocean shines.
You'll go where laurel crowns are won, but--will you e'er forget
The scent of hawthorn in the sun, or bracken in the wet?

Let me work here for Britain's sake--at any task you will--
A marsh to drain, a road to make or native troops to drill.
Some Western camp (I know the Pict) or granite Border keep,
Mid seas of heather derelict, where our old messmates sleep.

Legate, I come to you in tears--My cohort ordered home!
I've served in Britain forty years. What should I do in Rome?
Here is my heart, my soul, my mind--the only life I know.
I cannot leave it all behind. Command me not to go!

In the summer of 2013, we spent a week in the Lake District, in Coniston to be precise. On one of our daily outings we intended to go to Muncaster Castle, and I figured I could get there via Hardknott Pass. Very quickly it became clear that going that way would cost us precious hours... and possibly the visit to the castle too since the afternoon was already well advanced.

So we turned back and took the coast road to Muncaster Castle.

But if we had continued, we would have passed the remains of Hardknott Roman Fort, and I feel the centurion in Kipling's poem might well have hailed from here:

 photo hardknott_roman_fort_zpsqgevo7nb.jpg

Hardknott Fort was built between about 120 and 138 during the reign of Emperor Hadrian, but was reportedly abandoned when Emperor Antoninus Pius advanced deeper into Scotland. It was then reoccupied around 200, only to be abandoned again in the last years of the 4th century. The garrison during this latter period would have been a detachment of 500 cavalry of the 6th Cohort of Dalmatians from the Dalmatian coast.

The Steve Miller Band with Macho City.

From the 1981 album Circle of Love. Next year, Steve Miller Band has been making music and touring uninterruptedly for half a century! Yup, founded in 1966 in San Francisco. How about that, huh?

Then a somewhat younger band, Empire of the Sun with Walking on a Dream. From the 2008 debut album of the same name.

Aussie electronic music duo from Sydney around Luke Steele (The Sleepy Jackson, featured here almost three years ago) and Nick Littlemore. Hat tip OutlawDaughter.

Slaap wel.



Suddenly everybody has discovered Molenbeek and Philippe Moureaux, a despicable Parti Socialiste hack who basically designed Molenbeek - actually Sint-Jans-Molenbeek - as a hotbed for European jihadism. Years ago, I had a topic on that scoundrel, you will find an exerpt if you scroll down. But before that, check out The Gatestone Institute on monsieur Moureaux:

" ..."Instead of bombing Raqqah, France should be bombing Molenbeek." — Eric Zemmour, French journalist.

No one, at least outside Belgium, is talking about Molenbeek's long-time anti-Semitic mayor and the alliance with radical Islamists that secured his power.

The majority of the terrorists who have appeared in Europe in recent times originated from a single neighborhood, six square-kilometers in size -- an astounding concentration.

"[T]here are more veiled women here in Molenbeek than in Casablanca." — Resident interviewed by investigative reporter Gilles Gaetner.

The many shops run by Jews suddenly disappeared in 2008 after harassment and threats by local "youths." How did Mayor Moureaux react? By accusing Belgian Jews of wanting to deny Muslims the "right to diversity."

It is supposed to be Israel's fault when the Arabs of Belgium -- and especially those of Molenbeek -- have a bad reputation? This type of anti-Semitic resentment is unfortunately not only typical for Moureaux, but for his entire party.

The Molenbeek district of Brussels is considered Europe's "terrorist factory." At least three of the perpetrators of the November terrorist attacks in Paris came from there: Ibrahim Abdeslam, Abdelhamid Abaaoud and the remaining fugitive Salah Abdeslam. The list does not stop there. The Viennese daily newspaper "Die Presse" writes:

"Molenbeek already made headlines for the first time in 2001: Abdessatar Dahmane, the murderer of the Afghan war hero and horror of the Taliban, Ahmed Schah Massoud, was also a regular at the Islamic center at 18 Rue du Manchester, known for its radical views; as well as Hassan El Haski, who was presumed behind the attacks in Casablanca (41 dead in 2003) and Madrid (200 victims in 2004). The weapons that were used in the attacks on the French satirical paper "Charlie Hebdo" in January 2015 came from Molenbeek. The French jihadist Mehdi Nemouche, who caused a bloodbath in the Brussels Jewish Museum the previous year, lived here. In August 2015, Ayoub El Khazzani started out from here on his attempt to attack a train from Amsterdam to Paris."

The two jihadists killed by Belgian police in January, in Verviers, came from Molenbeek. The terrorist Amedy Coulibaly, who attacked the HyperCacher kosher supermarket in Paris, also spent time in Molenbeek.

The majority of the terrorists who have appeared in Europe in recent times originated from a single neighborhood, six square-kilometers in size -- an astounding concentration. Belgium is, in relation to the size of its population, the greatest European exporter of fighters for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Most of them -- at least 48 -- come from Molenbeek. "Instead of bombing Raqqah," says the French journalist Eric Zemmour, "France should be bombing Molenbeek."

More than half the population of Molenbeek is Muslim; a quarter come from Morocco -- such as the Paris attackers. "You know, there are more veiled women here in Molenbeek than in Casablanca," says a resident interviewed by investigative reporter Gilles Gaetner of the French news portal "Atlantico." Gaetner does consider that "surely an exaggeration," but admits: "When one walks the streets of this Brussels district, with its nearly 96,000 residents, one is overcome by a bizarre impression. Not only would you think you were no longer in the Kingdom of Belgium, but an oppressive atmosphere reigns here."

Foreign reporters are only now discovering Molenbeek. Those who have to live there have been complaining about the conditions there for a long time. The following excerpt is from a report by the Belgian weekly magazine Le Vif L'Express from 2011:

Buildings in danger of collapsing, street corners that are becoming landfills, a parked car rusts away in a parking lot: Urban renewal would be helpful here. "This is a gangster district. Here you get beat up for five Euros," says Karim. The shopkeeper is not happy. He talks about how he recently chased a teenager with a knife in his hand, who had stolen cigarettes. This scene took place just steps away from the Ribaucourt subway station. "The Rue Piers is not safe at this hour," says a young woman, who after 6pm either makes sure she is accompanied home, or else takes a taxi. She has been living with friends in an apartment in the district for three years. The apartment is large, and not too expensive. "But I am always vigilant," she says. Especially when she is wearing a skirt. "Insults, spitting, groping: I have experienced that." Other residents are moving out. "My house was burglarized twice within one year," says a witness. "When I go to the supermarket around the corner, I double-lock the door and turn on the alarm."

Testimonials to a city in fear. Much of the responsibility for this apparently rests with Philippe Moureaux, member of the Socialist Party (Parti Socialiste), who was mayor of Molenbeek from 1992 until 2012. Confronted with the complaints of his citizens, he regularly denied the unsustainable conditions in his town: "It makes me angry when people pick out tiny details and lie about them," he said in the quoted report. Molenbeek is "not the Bronx;" the problems with criminality only concern a small number of streets, said Moureaux.

Then Moureaux showed his true colors: "Molenbeek is a symbol that certain people want to destroy. But only over my dead body." Certain people? Does the mayor actually believe in a conspiracy against his district of misery? One does not have to search for long to realize that Moureaux, on whose initiative Belgium passed an "anti-racism law" in 1981, is an anti-Semite -- not exactly common even in Belgium. At the same time, he downplays and supports the violence of young Muslims -- also against Jews.

And now for the trip down Memory Lane: DowneastBlog on - amongst others - Philippe Moureaux, August 10, 2007:

 photo moureaux_zpsmuodnbzl.jpg

"... This list would not be complete without Philippe Moureaux, the mayor of Molenbeek, one of the 19 communes of Greater Brussels. Moureaux is one of the top Parti Socialiste officials in the whole of Brussels, and Molenbeek is his personal fiefdom. It was he who, in 2005, forbade his police officers to drink coffee and eat sandwiches in the streets during Ramadan. He also ordered them to limit their patrols significantly. Today, Molenbeek is a hotbed of Islamic extremism. Apart from his career in local politics, Moureaux has also been, in times past, a pivotal figure in Belgium's federal political arena, where he was deeply involved in drafting the law allowing non-Belgians to vote in municipal elections, as well legislation against racism and xenophobia. Over the years, this legislation was time and again amended until it was tailor-made, so to say, to "kill" the Vlaams Blok - or so Moureaux & Co thought. That was in 2004, and the VB only escaped being completely outlawed by changing its name. Philippe Moureaux' hatred of the VB is not only because of the "racism" he and his ilk perceive in this party or in each and everyone who dares to object to obvious problems caused by muslim immigrants. No, this man hates Flemings because he is a racist himself, and a fierce anti-Fleming racist at that. I have known him for over twenty-five years now, and during all this time I have never heard this cretin utter a single word in Flemish. I bet however, that by now he does speak quite a mouthful of arabic. After all, he married a muslim wife...."

Philippe Moureaux a couple of years back on a sunny day in Molenbeek among his New Adopted People. The woman immediately to the right of him is Laurette Onkelinckx, another gruesome Parti Socialiste heavyweight.

The left's Diversity Action Plan in all it's glory in action in Molenbeek, Anderlecht, Kuregem... every single one of them a Brussels commune/neighborhood/quartier which has reached the glorious endpoint of the socialist endeavor towards tomorrow's Multicultural Great Society!!!

Via our dear friends at Gates of Vienna, an electrifying speech by Bjoern Hoecke, a rising star in AfD (Alternative fuer Deutschland):

It's a shame I have come to copy and paste, but I'm too dead tired to put up material of my own. What counts however is that we in the Counter Jihad Movement get the message from people like Hoecke across, and if this humble blog reaches but one person who would otherwise have missed the text of Hoecke's speech over at GoV, I am grateful:


"Dear friends, you know what the big problem is? The big problem is that Germany, that Europe, have lost their masculinity. I say: we must rediscover our masculinity, for only when we rediscover our masculinity will we be resolute, and only when we are resolute, will we be able to mount a defence. And we must be able to mount a defence, dear friends.

Dear friends, Paris has become the European capital of terrorism. And like me, you too are horrified. I know that. But at the same time, I also wonder whether the tears shed by the German and European old-party politicians could really be genuine tears. Genuine tears can only be shed, by the one who has done everything to prevent a misfortune. Dear friends, there was the murder of Theo van Gogh 2004 in the Netherlands; this year already dozens of hand grenades were detonated in Malmö in Sweden; and most recently, the terrible terrorist attacks in Paris. These are the consequences of a decades-long, failed immigration and asylum policy, dear friends. More than ever is our demand justified, — and the previous speakers also substantiated that in all clarity — the influx to Europe must come to an end immediately.

And precisely because of the background of the terror attacks in Paris; and because of the policies which might now be expected from the old-party politicians; more than ever, dear friends, I must warn: we Germans must not allow ourselves — through the actions of manipulated people incapable of independent and responsible decision — to be drawn into wars, which are not our wars.

Our Germany is facing a national emergency, for our Germany is already a failed state.

It is the small events, it is the everyday events of the past weeks which have happened everywhere and in every location of our republic. Small events, which the media hardly notices at all, but which are still a clear indication that we are in the middle of the failed-state phase.

I would like to remind you of two of these. The District Court Passau recently sentenced a people-smuggler to a scandalously meagre punishment: — two years on parole. The man — by the very nature of a suspended sentence — is in fact at large. But the reason, dear friends, the reason given by the judge of the District Court in Passau is a cry for help and at the same time an admission of the judiciary’s failure to fulfil its statutory obligation. The judge gave the following reason for his decision, I quote: “In view of the conditions at the borders, statutory law has been suspended by the German politicians…”

The judiciary, dear friends, has here capitulated to the inaction of the politicians, and the police WILL soon capitulate. And to prognosticate that, one truly does not have to be a prophet.

A further example, a quite small, everyday event, which perhaps you heard about: Last week fifty asylum seekers were supposed to have found a new home in a communal accommodation in the Erfurt Warsbergstraße. Twenty of them did not wish to move in, because they considered the accommodation — a former office building customised especially for them — as unsuitable.

Abschieben! Abschieben! Abschieben!

It took a few hours before our completely overextended police, who really have other things to do… — At this point, an enormous, heartfelt thank-you to our officers, who are today once again doing magnificent work. Thank you for affording us protection. — It took hours before the police were able to persuade most of them to move into their quarters anyway.

But five of them refused tenaciously. They spent the night in the entrance to the underground garage of the former office building. By the next morning, the five asylum seekers had disappeared; five, in addition to the three hundred thousand in this country, who are not registered; who, in some locales, present with highly contagious diseases; and, isolated cases perhaps too, but nevertheless highly active diseases. With disquieting intentions they are underway in Germany on this very day.

Dear friends, that is an unmistakable sign of a failed state. The AfD speaks as the only political force to publicly address this problem and fight for the preservation of our country. Dear friends, those who have spoken before me have already emphasised this, but I will say it once more in conclusion: Merkel, Federal Chancellor, Dr. Angela Merkel: you have forfeited your right to continue leading the German people. We need a new Federal Chancellor [female]. We need a new Federal Chancellor [male], and he can only come from the AfD, dear friends.

Höcke! Höcke! Höcke!

Dear friends, no person in authority knows how many immigrants are streaming daily into our country. No one knows where they submerge. On Friday of last week only a few, just some of them, in Paris, surfaced. And the people were left in the lurch by their political leadership. No Angela Merkel, no Heiko Maas…

Heiko Maas!!! [SPD: Federal Minister of Justice and Consumer Protection]

It is beyond description, the fact that the formerly venerable Social Democratic Party of Germany is discussing in all seriousness making Heiko Maas a candidate for Chancellor. Kindly name me someone who is a bigger political flea than Heiko Maas, dear friends! That poor little man!

No Angela Merkel, no Heiko Maas, that poor little man, no Bodo Ramelow sits in one of these cafés that was fired upon in Paris. These rulers do not sit there. Defenceless, dear friends, sit there only the Volk; sit there only the ordinary citizens, sits there only the little man; it is only we who sit there as a rule. We are expected to lie in the bed, which the old-parties have made for us. I call out to the old-party politicians — and a few of them may also be listening in right now from our venerable parliamentary building, and I have even heard that today we have a livestream broadcast of the demonstration — to you old-party politicians now sitting at the television listening to my speech live, — I call out to you undistinguished Ladies and Gentlemen: we will not listen to the slop which you serve up for us; we have not ordered it and we are now sending it back.

Wir sind das Volk!
We are the people!

With slogans of appeasement, those in authority cover up their inaction; but words are words, dear friends, and deeds are deeds. But there are deeds. Indeed, there are in fact the deeds on the part of those who govern, but these deeds, dear friends, these deeds cause the alarm clock in me to ring, and perhaps also in you.

The federal government, to be exact, has created 500 new positions in the secret services. A representative of the Great Coalition told Bild am Sonntag last weekend, I quote:

“It is absolutely necessary, that in the face of the danger of terrorism from Islamists — and — right-wing radicals, that we strengthen our secret service personnel”.

Dear friends, since anyone who still utters the term “Volk” — and I do it unflinchingly and with self-conscious deliberation and with much delight — is stigmatised as a right-wing radical — we must assume that the dissatisfied Volk themselves are to be the object of monitoring: GDR 2.0 — I know which way the wind is blowing; that is all I have to say to that.

Greetings to our friends from Berlin who are also here.

Were the borders perhaps opened; perhaps opened, deliberately opened, or were they deliberately kept open, in order to bring about chaos? And is our ossified representational party democracy perhaps to be translated into an authoritarian order? No, we do not wish to strengthen any conspiracy theories here.

Only to those governing, you undistinguished Ladies and Gentlemen, you old-party politicians, I call out to you: in case you harbour such thoughts, forget that right now! Here stands das Volk, here stands the vigilant Volk; and if you do not hold a referendum at the federal level, then we will do that.

Wir sind das Volk!
We are the people!

We citizens no longer have confidence in the politicians. We are dis-illusioned with the government. But that means also that we will no longer allow ourselves to be given illusions.

Dear Friends, there is no other course: we must protect our country, we must protect our state and we must protect our Volk against the policies of the old parties. And this task suits AfD considerably. And I say it here yet again, and I have already said it often, but I must continually put this credo into the public sphere: for me, the AfD is the last peaceful chance which our country has, dear friends.

Höcke! Höcke! Höcke!
AfD! AfD! AfD!

Indeed it is for this reason as well, that I built up this party with such great hope, and with so many idealistic people who have stood beside me. And because for me, the party is the last evolutionary opportunity, the last peaceful chance for our country, I would like right now to give to our party’s five basic principles to take with them. These basic principles are the joint work of my colleague and AfD faction leader in the Brandenburg Landtag, Dr. Alexander Gauland, and me.

Alexander Gauland will be reading aloud at this moment these five basic requirements, these five principles, simultaneously, at the large AfD demo in Magdeburg, dear friends.

The first basic principle:

Germany is not negotiable.

Out state, our nation, is not a product of chance. It is the work of so many generations. With pride, with pride we look upon a rich culture, civil and political freedoms and prosperity. We are willing to help many countries in this world. But one thing we will not do: hand over our land and our nation. Germany is our country, dear Friends!

Deutschland! Deutschland! Deutschland!

The second basic principle:

Germany is not a laboratory for social experiments.

We reject irresponsible experiments with and on our Volk. Only ideologues believe that a society without a family can function, or that everyone becomes a German as soon as he has crossed the frontier. To the dangerous ideologies which aim to create a multicultural society and abolish the classical family, we issue a clear refusal.

The third basic principle:

Germany must act along the lines of self-determination.

Germany, in the estimation of the highest ranking security officials, is no longer in a position to guarantee her domestic and external security. The situation is spinning out of control. And what is the Bundeswehr doing? They are serving foreign interests throughout the world, while the soldiers who remain here evacuate their barracks for asylum seekers and repair toilets in reception centres.

We require, finally, a political leadership willing to make independent decisions in the national interest.

The fourth basic principle:

Germany must win back her domestic freedom.

Not infrequently, the so-called “Lügenpresse” [lying press] as many call it, have earned their name honestly. In the place of objective reporting, they propagate a fatal welcoming culture. The state television, financed by the TV-licence fee, brand us as adversaries, because we say what is not supposed to be said.

Political correctness lies like blight on our country. The AfD is the guarantor of free speech and of the unsparing analysis of our situation. Because we have gathered here today, the domestic freedom in Germany is still alive.

Lügenpresse! Lügenpresse! Lügenpresse!
[Lying press!]

The fifth and last, and perhaps the most important basic principle:

Germans must become capable of responsible self-determination [mündig werden].

And Erfurt, the capital of courageous citizens, is the place to speak out once and for all with the utmost clarity: Germany, dear friends, Germany was the homeland of our forefathers. Germany must remain the homeland of our children. Germany is our homeland — our land — and our nation!

Thank you very much.

Höcke! Höcke! Höcke!"

Aerosmith with Dream On. From their debut album Aerosmith, 1973...

... although Steven Tyler already nine years previously had an own band, The Strangeurs.

Styx with Babe. From the 1979 album Cornerstone.

Never understood why Chicago blokes named their band after the mythological river between Earth and the Underworld, since well before Obamba, but to each his own.

Slaap wel. Sigh.



As per usual, a lone sane voice in a cacophony of madness, Mark Steyn:

"The British Home Secretary, Theresa May, was a little behind the curve when she reacted to the bloodbath in Paris by insisting that "the attacks have nothing to do with Islam". This is the old spin that, although some terrorists might claim to be Muslim, there's nothing inherently Muslim about their terrorism.

But why be so modest? In the United States, the most senior members of the Democrat establishment are taking it to the next level. Secretary of State John Kerry:

It has nothing to do with Islam; it has everything to do with criminality, with terror, with abuse, with psychopathism – I mean, you name it.

As my friend Douglas Murray remarked:

So long as you don't name it 'Islam'.

Quite. Secretary Kerry doesn't care what you name it as long as you don't name it "Islam". Because the not-naming of Islam is more important than the actual naming of whatever it is. Even the qualification that many have been careful to make over the years - of course, most Muslims aren't terrorists but an awful lot of terrorists unfortunately happen to be Muslim - will no longer suffice. As President-in-waiting Hillary Clinton assures us:

Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.

So not only is terrorism nothing to do with Islam, but Muslims have "nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism". She said this a few hours before yet another US citizen was killed by terrorists shouting "Allahu Akbar!" - this time in a mass slaughter at the Radisson Hotel in Bamako, Mali. Hostages were given a stark choice: if they could recite from the Koran, they would live; if they were incapable of reciting from the Koran, they would die. So whoever these terrorists were - "you name it" - they knew enough about Islam to be able to recognize quotations from the Koran. Yet they can't be Muslims because Muslims have "nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism".

So who does have something to do with terrorism? Republicans mainly. Republicans are the greatest recruiting tool for terrorism that has ever been devised - far more effective than jihadist snuff videos on social media. Just ask President Obama:

MANILA, Philippines -- President Obama on Wednesday angrily accused Republicans of feeding into the Islamic State's strategy of casting the United States as waging war on Muslims, saying the GOP's rhetoric has become the most "potent recruitment tool" for the militant group...

"I cannot think of a more potent recruitment tool for ISIL than some of the rhetoric coming out of here in the course of this debate," Obama said during a news conference at a leadership summit here, using an acronym for the Islamic State.

The president said that the group "seeks to exploit the idea that there's war between Islam and the West, and when you start seeing individuals in position of responsibility suggesting Christians are more worthy of protection than Muslims are in a war-torn land that feeds the ISIL narrative."

So "Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism" except when Republicans goad them into it. In this case, they goad them by suggesting that Christians need more "protection" than Muslims. In the Radisson Hotel in Bamako, the Christians did, indeed, need more protection - which is why they're dead and the observant Muslims are alive. In Syria and Iraq, in less than two years, the oldest Christian communities on earth have been entirely eradicated - every Christian male is dead or fled, and their prepubescent daughters are now rape slaves for the sexual inadequates of ISIS. So, whether they're "more worthy of protection", those Christians could certainly have used a little of it.

Even when you make it out of your "war-torn land" and join the great swarm of refugees yearning to breath free, a Christian can use a little "protection":

Rome (CNN)Muslims who were among migrants trying to get from Libya to Italy in a boat this week threw 12 fellow passengers overboard -- killing them -- because the 12 were Christians, Italian police said Thursday.

Italian authorities have arrested 15 people on suspicion of murdering the Christians at sea, police in Palermo, Sicily, said.

It is certainly true that, in their march to victory, ISIS and its affiliates are happy to slaughter any Muslim who gets in their way - mainly those inclined to a moderate accommodation with the sane world: Yazidis, Kurds, Jordanian Air Force pilots, post-Gaddafi Libyan democrats... But the willingness to kill any Muslim who gets in your way doesn't change the fact that the killing is in the name of Islam, and Islam is the way. As I wrote all those years ago in my book America Alone:

Many of the developed world's citizens gave no conscious thought to Islam pre-9/11. Now we switch on the news every evening and, though there are many trouble spots around the world, as a general rule it's easy to make an educated guess at one of the participants: Muslims vs Jews in "Palestine", Muslims vs Hindus in Kashmir, Muslims vs Christians in Africa, Muslims vs Buddhists in Thailand, Muslims vs Russians in the Caucasus, Muslims vs backpacking tourists in Bali, Muslims vs Danish cartoonists in Scandinavia. The environmentalists may claim to think globally but act locally, but these guys live it. They open up a new front somewhere on the planet with nary a thought.

Islam already enjoys a unique dispensation in this regard. When a swastika is found on a bathroom stall on an American campus, officialdom does not line up to say that most white people "have nothing to do with racism". Au contraire: insufficient denunciations of "white privilege" lead to the immediate loss of your job. When a single killer is discovered to have a Confederate flag emblem among his possessions, that's reason enough to have it removed from all public land within the country, and even to have ancient TV shows that include a motor vehicle with a Confederate flag decal canceled from the rerun channels. But when the Koran and invocations therefrom are found among the possessions of killers in Bamoko, in Tel Aviv, in Paris, in Chattanooga these are just daily 24/7 exceptions that prove the ironclad rule that Muslims "have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism"."

Not to be outdone, Belgian PM Charles Michel found it necessary to join the chorus of spineless dhimmi traitors by issuing the following diatribe. To be sure, this was on 15 November already, in the wake of the Paris attacks:

 photo charles_michel_idiot_zps6kxxo7vb.jpg


PARIS ATTACKS. PM Charles Michel launched an appeal for tolerance today in the Assembly, after the Paris attacks. "The perpetrators lie when they say that they kill in the name of Allah, they kill in the name of hate. Islam is a peaceful religion full of mercy", he said. The PM addressed Parliament during a ceremony at the occasion of King's Day.

According to Michel the terrorists abuse islam in their battle for a totalitarian state. Islam has nothing to do with terrorism, the PM emphasized."

"Islam is a peaceful religion full of mercy".

Yes. It is true. That's what he said.

I thank God on my bare knees that the Christian armies which stopped Al Ghafiqi's muslim hordes in 732 in Poitiers, were not commanded by Charles Michel, but by Charles Martel.



Since 2 am Saturday morning, Brussels is in a heightened state of alert. State Security "has indications that an attack was planned with guns and explosives". PM Charles Michel has stated that "the threat is grave and very close". The Threat Level is at 4, the highest one. The Brussels metro does not function. Army and police patrol in the city.

For decades the Vlaams Belang has warned of the grave dangers imposed by unchecked immigration and especially from muslim countries.

It's only reward was a "cordon sanitaire", a barrage of insults, anti-racism laws, lawsuits, intimidation campaigns, vandalization of property of its members and party infrastructure, the blocking of ads, exclusion of VB publications on the yearly Boekenbeurs (the national Book Fair), and severe restrictions on the appearance of VB politicians on state-controlled TV stations.

Today, the chickens have come home to roost.



I never thought I'd one day wish it was still Catherine Ashton.

Business Insider UK thinks the following is worthwile enough to print. In a way it is, but not for the reasons Business Insider thinks it is. At the end you might be in tears, but not out of compassion for Antoine Leiris:

 photo Antoine_Leiris_loser_zpssvln0p90.jpg

"The tales of survivors from Friday's devastating terrorist attacks in Paris are going viral, as are messages from grieving friends and family.

129 people were killed and hundreds more injured in a series of coordinated gun attacks and bomb blasts across the City.

The Facebook post of a young woman called Isobel Bowdery detailing how she survived one of the shootings has been shared thousands of times and liked by over a million people.

The latest account is that of young Parisian Antoine Leiris on Facebook.

In his post, entitled “Vous n’aurez pas ma haine”, which translates as "You will not have my hatred," he writes that he will never give the terrorists the "satisfaction" of anger and hate, despite losing his wife in the shooting at the Bataclan theatre. Leris and his wife have an infant son together.

Leiris does not name his wife, but BuzzFeed reports that Hélène Muyal-Leiris, a Parisian makeup artist, was one of the victims of the massacre at the Bataclan.

The post is in French but here are excerpts, translated into English:"

"On Friday evening you stole the life of an exceptional person, the love of my life, the mother of my son, but you will not have my hatred.

So no, I will not give you the satisfaction of hating you. You want it, but to respond to hatred with anger would be to give in to the same ignorance that made you what you are.

Us two, my son and I, we will be stronger than every army in the world. I cannot waste any more time on you as I must go back to [my son] who has just woken from his sleep.

He is only just 17 months old, he is going to eat his snack just like every other day, then we are going to play like every other day and all his life this little boy will be happy and free.

Because you will never have his hatred either."

Look at that face again.


His wife just got murdered.

L-O-O-K at his face.

Is this what Europe has gotten down to? "Antoine Leiris posted a defiant message on Facebook after the loss of his wife in the Paris attacks."

Defiant huh? I can see and smell them ISIS types shitting their djellabas full already.

If there are any wankers out there who feel like complaining that I'm a heartless monster for not caring about Mr Leiris's dead wife and not showing compassion, I'm sorry, but you got it backwards. It's that fuckface who does not care for his wife. It's that loser who's not showing compassion. Gee, "my son and I, we will be stronger than any army in the world"??? Dude, you've got mushy croissants for brains. If that is so, then half that army was there on Friday night, yet it could not retaliate against the assassins who butchered Mme Leiris. "All his life this little boy will be happy and free"? For God's sake, I, I, I, I'm at a complete loss for words by being confronted with sheer uebergullible STUPIDITY and irritating self-righteousness of this magnitude. Your little boy, you amoeba, will only be happy and free but for the efforts of better men than yourself. For crying out loud, I thought that ludicrous dork cycling his Piano to the Bataclan Theatre to play "Imagine" was bad, but this "guy" beats the living shit out of that fool.

Looking at his face, I wonder how he ever got the cojones to approach a woman in the first place? And how did this turd ever get his dick stiff enough to make a baby?

Is my language harsh? It is. But I don't care. I DON'T CARE. I'm FURIOUS. If France has to wage war against ISIS with males like Antoine Leiris, they might just as well surrender right now. If, in this time and age, Antoine Leiris represents European manhood....

... then we're LOST. GAME OVER. I never thought I'd one day wish Europe had still something like the Wehrmacht, but Antoine Leiris just made me do it.

Over at The Gatestone Institute, a succinct article by Judith Bergman:


◾The West, especially Europe, continues to be taken aback every time a new terror attack occurs, as if each one were the first.

◾"We are importing Islamic extremism, Arab anti-Semitism, national and ethnic conflicts of other peoples, as well as a different understanding of society and law." — From a leaked German intelligence document.

◾The current generation of European political leaders has exhibited an irresponsibility and lack of leadership that is almost infantile.

One of the most surprising aspects of the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday night is how "deeply shocked" members of the European political establishment appeared to be.

Angela Merkel, David Cameron and the Pope all expressed their condolences -- and "deep shock" -- at the well-coordinated, citywide terror attacks in six different places across Paris, which as of this writing have claimed at least 128 lives and more than 200 wounded. French President François Hollande confirmed that Islamic State terrorists perpetrated the attacks, carried out with suicide bombings, hand grenades and assault rifles. According to witnesses, terrorists were heard yelling, "Allahu Akbar" ['Allah is the Greatest"] and "this is for Syria" as they shot into the audience at the Bataclan Theater, where a rock concert was underway.

Although the writing has literally been on the wall in blood for the past decade and a half, the West, especially Europe, continues to be taken aback every time a new terror attack occurs, as if each one were the first.

After 9/11 in the United States; the 2004 Madrid train bombings, which killed nearly 200 and wounded 2000, and the 2005 attacks on London's transit system where 56 people were killed and 700 wounded, world leaders have no conceivable excuse left to be shocked and surprised at mass terrorism occurring in the midst of Western capitals.

As recently as a month ago, Andrew Parker, director-general of Britain's MI5, said that the terror threat to the UK was at its highest level in more than three decades and "growing." British police and intelligence agencies have intervened to foil six terrorist plots in the past year alone. "That is the highest number I can recall in my 32-year career, certainly the highest number since 9/11," he said. "It represents a threat which is continuing to grow, largely because of the situation in Syria and how that affects our security."

Instead of Britain, these attacks happened in France. They could have happened in Germany, where police revealed the arrest of a man whom they believe may be connected the Paris attacks. Recently, the Welt Am Sonntag newspaper cited intelligence warnings that "the integration of hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants Germany is no longer possible in light of the number and already existing parallel societies." "Parallel societies" refers to Muslim communities that have little or no contact with the rest of the society in their host countries. According to an intelligence document obtained by Welt am Sonntag, "We are importing Islamic extremism, Arab anti-Semitism, national and ethnic conflicts of other peoples, as well as a different understanding of society and law." Most ominously, however, the intelligence document went on to say that "German security agencies ... will not be in the position to solve these imported security problems and thereby the reactions arising from Germany's population."

Already in February, it was reported in several European newspapers, among them the British Daily Telegraph, that ISIS threatened Europe with an influx of 500,000 migrants, which would include ISIS operatives hiding among them, to create chaos on the continent.

Astoundingly, European leaders nevertheless allowed the current wave of migrants to flood into their countries. Many of these migrants hide underground, often in the suburbs with these "parallel societies;" with European authorities unable to account for their whereabouts.

In September, a Syrian ISIS smuggler told the British daily, The Express, that more than 4,000 covert ISIS gunmen had been smuggled into Western nations, and were "ready" across the European Union. He also said that the undercover infiltration was the beginning of a larger plot to carry out attacks in the West, allegedly in retaliation for the US-led coalition airstrikes against ISIS.

In September, Lebanon's education minister, Elias Bou Saab, estimated that thousands of ISIS "radicals" were among the 1.1 million Syrians currently in refugee camps. He predicted that one in 50 migrants are members of the terror organization. Although at the time, the minister admitted that he had no solid information on the infiltration of refugees, he said, "My gut feeling is ISIS are facilitating an operation. To go to Europe and other places."

The terrorist attacks in Paris are the direct and deplorable result of political cowardice and inertia. Politicians are unable or unwilling to name the problems by their rightful name. The politicians have been shying away from engaging with the enormous security and social problems that Muslim immigration into Europe and the West has caused and continues to cause.

In the face of the Islamic terrorism that the West has been experiencing for more than a decade. The current generation of European political leaders has exhibited an irresponsibility and lack of leadership that is almost infantile by allowing unchecked Muslim immigration into Europe, with its free, open borders. The question is whether the terrorist attacks in Paris will finally amount to a wake-up call for the West's political establishment.

We already know the answer to that one, and it's a big fat NO. Not even close.

Prayers for the victims and their relatives:

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

Hail Mary, full of grace.
Our Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb,
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.



Believe it or not, but the bodies of 160 Frenchmen and Frenchwomen who were brutally butchered by muslim terrorists last night aren't cold yet, or there's The Guardian worrying about backlash against muslims and the "extreme right" stoking the flames even more: "Muslims will increasingly fear being associated with terror; far-right groups may well fuel more hatred."

The author of the piece - I did not deem her 'article' worth reading lest I get migraine - is Natalie Nougayrède, a columnist, leader writer and foreign affairs commentator for the Guardian. She is FRENCH, by the way. Previously she was executive editor and managing editor of Le Monde. Which explains a lot of course. Look, just look, at that smug, know-it-all, holier-than-thou visage.

Lunatics like Nougayrède are going to get us all killed.

It is 1am on Saturday morning, 14 November 2015. At least 60 people have been murdered by islamic terrorists in multiple shootings. Three of them occurred in the east of Paris: in the Rue de la Fontaine au Roi, the Rue de Charenton and in the Bataclan Theatre, where at this moment there's still about 100 people held hostage. There are also reports of shooting at Les Halles and at the Louvre.

And here are the reactions of our moral betters, our bien pensants, those who would chastise - even punish or fine - sane people advocating that Europe should close its borders for the muslim hordes invading us:

And so on and so on and so on....

.... ALL said 'gentlemen and -women' are shocked, SHOCKED, SHOCKED I tell you!!! They are all shocked because of this "terrible tragedy", they "offer heartfelt condolences to the relatives of the victims" AND they all "stand with France". And oh, before you jump to conclusions, islam has nothing to do with it.


The scoundrels above and their lackeys in the media, "cultural" sector, schools and universities are going to get us all killed. As long as no generation of honest and decent statesmen comes forward to chase these lunatics from power, Europe will continue to suffer from the muslim onslaught.

I call a spade a spade. Tens of people have died and are dying because of ISLAMIC TERRORISM.

They have died, and are dying, because of ISLAM.

It is that simple.

Pray for the victims and their loved ones.

And prepare for Battle.



Via our pals at Gates of Vienna, a report of the very dire situation in Calais, where locals are terrorized by "refugees":

Europe will go down in flames courtesy our traitorous leftist class. Forever ardent supporters of their ideological mentors Sartre, Derrida, the lunatics at the Frankfurt School et al, they will have all the "deconstruction" they ever wished for.

Harry Nilsson with Everybody's talkin'.

Midnight Cowboy (1969, by John Schlesinger) is one of those films one ought to see before dying.

John Denver with Annie's Song.

An over the top leftist lunatic, but we will forgive him that if only because of this song.

Slaap wel.



Via Gates of Vienna:

Notice how about two thirds into the video, it is revealed that there are Algerians among the refugees. Algerians? No doubt on the run for those pesky US drones over Algiers and Oran I suppose.

A funny headline in the UC Merced Star:

 photo faisalmohammad_zpsinnlivbj.jpg

Good riddance.

Read and then laugh hysterically:

"UC Merced Chancellor Dorthy Leland said there was no evidence to believe Wednesday’s attack by a freshman computer science student from Santa Clara was “in any way related to terrorism.”

Preliminary evidence, she said, suggests 18-year-old Faisal Mohammad “appears to have been motivated by personal animosities, not a political agenda.” She said, “it would be irresponsible” to draw any link to terrorism “based solely on the ethnicity of the suspect.”

Speaking to reporters Thursday, Sheriff Vern Warnke echoed Leland’s statements, saying evidence gathered suggests the attack was an “act of an individual for a vendetta … nothing to indicate there was any political or religious motivation.”

Investigators seized numerous items from the backpack Mohammad carried into the classroom, including several zip-tie handcuffs, petroleum jelly, a night-vision scope, a safety hammer, and rolls of duct tape, among other things.

Warnke said it remains unclear precisely what Mohammad had planned. Local and federal authorities, including the FBI and U.S. Department of Homeland Security, have yet to find anything to explain his motivation.

“We have nothing to indicate this person was on anybody’s radar,” Warnke said, “absolutely nothing they could find to indicate he was doing anything other than being a college student at UC Merced.”

Mohammad was shot and killed by UC police Wednesday after he stabbed and wounded four people in the ramapage that began in a second-floor classroom..."

Islam's got nothing to do with it folks! Just a guy who wanted to save the planet by reducing carbon emissions!

Hmmm. Dorthy huh? Some time back the town hall fonctionnaire writing down our dear future Chancellor's first name in the birth register must have had a bad case of hangover.

Let's correct that: D0r0thy.

Now that's better!

As I more or less suspected would happen at some point, cracks are beginning to form in Merkel's team. Via Die Welt:

 photo hanspeteruhl_zpsimkj3zpj.jpg

The leader of the Bavarian CSU (Christian Democrats), Hans-Peter Uhl, who counts among Germany's top federal politicians, has stated, in a noted op-ed in the Frankfurter Allgemeine, that the borders must be closed "with or without Merkel". "If Merkel does not change course, she cannot stay on as Chancellor. The borders shall be closed with Merkel or the borders shall be closed without Merkel".

Most "refugees" enter Germany via southern Bavaria where the authorities can no longer cope with the massive influx. Not surprisingly, neighbor Austria is also finally voicing criticism on Germany's open door policy, with the Austrian Foreign Minister, Sebastian Kurz, now demanding strongly that this policy is discontinued.

What a difference six weeks make! On 12 September, Werner Faymann, the Austrian Chancellor, compared Hungarian PM Viktor Orban's measures against the "refugees" to the nazi deportation of Jews. We don't hear much of Mr Faymann anymore. Below you see a video of Austrian people demonstrating in Spielfeld, near the border with Slovenia. These people experienced firsthand that the influx of asylum seekers is nothing less than a muslim invasion. Basic common sense in action from Austrians who can no longer swallow the insane multiculti gobbledegook:

As for me, I can't wait to see Merkel booted out. This insane woman has to go.
