1968. Herb Alpert with This Guy's in love with you, a timeless classic. Alpert had already made a name for himself as frontman of Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. This number, imho one of the best love songs ever - if not the best - was a solo thing though. Also, it was originally written by Burt Bacharach, another music legend.

1978. Dean Friedman with Lydia, tremendously beautiful ballad that flopped for some reason. Popular perception has it that Ariel is Friedman's No. 1 hit. Can't figure out why.

1990. 'Falling', sung by Julee Cruise. The theme was the intro on the soundtrack of the quasi mythical series Twin Peaks. My wife and I requested this number - okay, actually it was just me - for our opening dance on our wedding ceremony in summer 1999.

1995. Adam Ant began his career as the lead man of the English postpunk/New Wave band Adam & The Ants, but this number was made a long time after the group's demise. It's called Wonderful, and it is from his last album to date. Probably the very last, since the fella has since, on more than one occasion, seen the interior of psychiatric wards. Not as a personnel member, mind you. Anyway, Wonderful is, well, wonderful.

Make it a nice Valentine's Day for your sweetheart.

Via François Desouche, February 3, 2010:

The German town of Rendsburg [in northern Schleswig-Holstein, on the Kiel Canal - MFBB] has authorised the call to prayer via loudspeaker of a muezzin from a minaret of Rendsburgs mosque, despite the protests of a part of the population, thus announced on Tuesday Rendsburgs Social Democrat mayor, Andreas Breitner.

The project, defended by the Islamic Centre, which is running the mosque, had provoked lively protests from part of the population, which focused on the nuisance caused by the call to prayer, launched five times a day to invite the faithful to prayer. A petition of the group "No Public Call to Prayer" had gathered 800 signatures.

However, according to the mayor, a study on the limits beyond which noise levels would become troublesome had shown that the public calls to prayer would not exceed 40 decibels, which corresponds with a radio or bird cries [said the mayor].

"Skin color, one's origin, gender or different religions do not play a role (in this kind of decisions). And it's good like that", explained the mayor.

The mosque of this town of more than 28,000 inhabitants, situated 100 kilometers from Hamburg, is the biggest one in Schleswig-Holstein, with two 26m high minarets. It was inuagurated in the fall of 2009."

More here.

And here's a short video:

One party which absolutely welcomed the decision to allow the muezzin's call were the Rendsburger Gruene, the Greens. While it is certainly true that all over Europe, the greatest facilitators of islamization are socialists, the greens show barely less enthusiasm - perhaps they are so enamored with islam because they share with it the same color. It is no coincidence that the National Chairman of the German Greens is... a Turk and self-described "secular muslim", Cem Ozdemir. But perhaps the most striking case in point of the affiliation between greens and muslims remains a 2008 incident involving a Green Party spokesperson in Hause, a district of Frankfurt, central Germany. The district there was already home to two mosques, and yet another muslim association wanted to erect a third one, including a muslim community center... this within a 400-meter radius of the other two. Estimated cost: €3 million. When indigenous Germans protested at a meeting concerning the building plans that "It wouldn't feel like home anymore if more come here", the Green Party spokeswoman AND Frankurts Integration Official (!!!), Nargess Eskandari-Gruenberg, blasted back that:

"40 percent of the city's population are immigrants. "If that doesn't suit you," she said, "then you need to move somewhere else."

Oh yeah, never mind her liberal western looks. It's all taqiyyah you know.

Sadly, these are no isolated cases. Currently, 184 new mosques are being built and/or planned throughout Germany. That's basically, all of a sudden, a 115% increase over the existing 163 mosques [apart from that, there are also an estimated 2,600 prayer rooms - MFBB].

Powerful organizations behind this sudden building frenzy are DITIB and Ahmadiyya. DITIB is actually a branch of the Turkish Ministry of Religious Affairs, and is on its maps already dividing up Germany in religious entities not unlike Christian dioceses. Ahmadiyya is an organization totally apart from DITIB, but no less ambitious, since it has introduced a "100 Mosque Plan" - of which 25% has already been completed!

But back to our Rendsburger muezzin. If the gullible mayor thinks that the call to prayer won't exceed 40 decibels, I have another bridge across the Kiel Canal to sell him. The naivete of those people is really striking, especially in light of the undisputable fact that muslims don't give a jolt about kafir laws. Time and again, muslims do not honor their part of the bargain. Building perscriptions are violated, payment deadlines aren't met, and agreed on transparancy is not provided. Some examples:

"Under the pretext of religious privilege, the DITIB strategists in Cologne have in truth claimed the rights to a commercial center that also happens to include the opportunity to pray. A Muslim community in Berlin's Neukölln district also wanted to take its cue from Cologne and construct an immense commercial and cultural center. But at least the planners there, as the daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung recognized, only described the structure as being a "semi-mosque."

That plan, however, failed in the face of the strong opposition of Deputy Mayor and District Councilwoman Stefanie Vogelsang of the conservative Christian Democrats. Her awareness of the issue had been heightened by a conflict with DITIB a few years earlier, when the organization deliberately violated its building permits during the construction of a new mosque in the same neighborhood.

By the time construction had been completed, the mosque's two minarets rose 37 meters into the Berlin skyline rather than the approved 28 meters and the dome measured around 22 meters instead of the permitted 18. For Vogelsang that was cause enough to slap the Muslim congregation with the highest fine ever imposed in her district, €100,000. "Whoever lives here, whoever builds here, needs to follow our laws," she said"...."

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

So, if you think this guy, Hasan Unsal, the muezzin of the Rendsburg mosque...

... will stick to the 40 decibel limit when trying to wake up his co-religionists at five in the morning... you're probably one of those people who are still convinced the Himalaya's glaciers will all be gone by 2035. Meanwhile...

Mosque in Duisburg, in the Ruhr area

The "Tabakmoschee" in Dresden

The planned Sendlinger mosque in Muenchen

"The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers..." - Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkish PM

And so in Germany an army of 4 million mainly Turkish muslims, up from a couple of tens of thousands one hundred years ago, is building their barracks, with domes like helmets and minarets like bayonets, although they rather strike me as somewhat more modern weaponry. Meanwhile, the pathetic remnant of 200,000 Christians in Turkey itself, down from several million one hundred years ago, is not allowed to build churches. A telling statistic is provided by the Churches of the Byzantine rite, of which there were twenty-nine. Their current state: 4 are in ruins, 3 have been converted into museums, 15 have been converted into a mosques, one has been completely demolished and a new mosque has been built on top. In six of them, Christian Mass is still being held. But for how long?

One more thing.

The mayor of Rendsburg, Andreas Breitner, is a member of the SPD, the German socialists.

But. I suspect. That you suspected that already.

Via Galliawatch, a January 29, 2010 exerpt from an utterly sad article by Mireille Popelin, first published at Riposte Laïque:

"There are 12 million of them. French salaried workers. And everything is being done to make them disappear. No one even talks about them anymore! The radical chic ("bobo") Left even says they no longer exist. They endure discrimination. The workers at Conti, at Caterpillar, etc... who fight against the relocation of their companies, who fight against so-called social plans, i.e., unemployment, have to wage their battles alone. They are the people who live in low-income housing and who are subject to the laws of the fanatics and the mafiosi.

Many left the suburbs that had become unlivable. But not those who did not have the means to buy or rent elsewhere. Old retired people who were not able to leave are insulted: "dirty French, old whores, and 4 square meters." You don't know what "4 square meters" refers to? It's the grave. They reduce these older workers to the grave! With targeted spitting, near their shoes. With seats in the bus offered to a veiled Muslim woman apparently younger than they are. At the marketplace it is the Muslim woman who is served first, ostensibly, while the French woman has to wait. The merchants are Arabs. The butcher shops are almost all halal and the retirees have to take a bus or subway to stock up on meat that is not halal. I know them, I listen to them in their retirement clubs.

What of the schools? Islamists are at the door and put pressure on the poor teachers... no swimming pool for girls, no "sex" ed. (We have religion, they say, we don't need that. We don't talk about that.) Biology, history... the teachers often break down, torn between fear and the desire to "pull" these kids towards emancipation and knowledge. I know this well, because it has happened in my family, and it ends with depression and heart attacks.

I'm tired of reading everywhere about the great fears of Muslims who are discriminated against, when fanatics and mafiosi force their "law" in the "lost territories of the Republic".

Note: The Lost Territories of the Republic is the title of a book by Emmanuel Brenner (a pseudonym) that came out in 2002. It describes the breakdown of law and order in large areas of France where even the police dare not go. The following is drawn from a review of the book at JCPA:

The testimonies indicate the serious plight of French democracy. Many teachers close their eyes to the violence, intimidation, and racism. Others describe the perpetrators as "hooligans" or "hoodlums," in denial of the fact that there are elements in the French Muslim community as well as foreign television stations that systematically incite against others. Other teachers try to maintain "social peace" by appeasing the bullies and withholding sympathy from their victims.

The schools' attitudes broadly reflect those of the left-wing government and the previous political position of President Jacques Chirac. During three years of major anti-Semitic incidents, he denied that there was anti-Semitism in France. Only after yet another arson attempt against a Jewish institution in November 2003 did Chirac decide to change his stance.

The cases described are not limited to Jewish victims. Some Christian pupils are so intimidated by the Muslim majority in their classes that they have considered converting to Islam. Teachers are harassed as well. Some Muslim pupils expressed their joy about 11 September, and Bin Laden is a hero to them. It would be a mistake to think that the hatred focuses exclusively on Jews and Americans; the Muslims' main disgust is for the French and French society."

Meanwhile, French officials have far more pressing matters at hand and events to attend which are a gazillion times more important than the stupid pathetic lives of Jean-Claude, Marie-Claire, Sébastien and Sandrine. François Desouche follows Mr. Brice Hortefeux, French Interior Minister, at the occasion of the inauguration of the Grand Mosque of Clermont-Ferrand, central France:

"The Grand Mosque of Clermont-Ferrand, expected since more than ten years by the about 35,000 muslims of Auvergne, was inaugurated this evening by the Interior Minister, Brice Hortefeux.

Integrally financed with 1.2 million EUR by faithful French and foreigners, the mosque, which boasts a dome and soon a minaret, covers a surface of more than 1,000 sq. meters and can accommodate 1,500 people.

"My presence here, as Minister of Interior responsible for religion, is meant as a sign of the will to dialogue which unites the Republic with France's muslims", declared Hortefeux, who was accompanied by the rector of the Grand Mosque of Paris, Dalil Boubakeur, the chairman of the National Muslim Council, Mohammed Moussaoui, diplomats and religious and political personalities.

"This mosque is the hallmark of an islam of peace, moderate, far from the radical sermons that may poison the life of France's muslims, Hortefeux added. Boubakeur said that as far as he is concerned, the mosque is "a historical work", "a place of love, peace and spirituality for all the faithful of the region".

Hortefeux, at the same time Regional Councillor of Auvergne, then donned a burnous, a traditional muslim garb presented to authorities, offered by the mosque's imam Hocine Mahdjoub."

You may remember the name Hortefeux. He is the lunatic who insisted, on January 1, 2010, that things had been quite calm the previous night and that a turning point in the Carbeques phenomenon had been reached because "only" 1,137 cars had been torched, as opposed to 1,147 the year before. What he apparently failed to notice was that in order to get the tally down a paltry 10 (ten) cars, 10,000 more riot police had been deployed.

Here's a short video of this dhimmi scoundrel and traitor:

Meanwhile, construction of mosques all over France continues like a whirlwind. Below you see a photo of the building site of the Grand Mosque of Strasbourg, in France's east.

And this is the projected Grand Mosque of Marseille, construction of which saw the green light in January:

Sweden is bad. The UK is bad. Germany is bad. The Netherlands is very bad. Belgium is bad. But I am pretty certain the first country to go down in flames will be France.

Let no one say there were no warnings.

Outlaw Mike, the mean Belgian/Flemish Capitalist, Conservative and Christian follower of Hayek, Von Mises and Friedman salutes you.
