First the hottest sound to come out of NYC since Interpol, Parquet Courts, with Human Performance.

When I heard it first, I thought it was some garage rock from the seventies I had unexplicably missed. Nossir. They formed in 2010 and are the brothers Andrew and Max Savage (vocals + guitar, and drums respectively), plus Austin Brown (vocals, guitar) and Sean Yeaton (bass).

So Prince is dead. Never considered myself à fan extraordinaire, but he gets à sympathetic nod tonight. Money don't matter 2 night.

Album Diamonds and Pearls, 1991.

RIP man. Thanks for some good music.

Good night.

An article by Tiberge over at Galliawatch, April 12, 2016:

"...A few days ago I posted an article by Guy Rouvrais on the Islamization of certain French Catholic schools where the teaching of the Koran has eclipsed catechism instruction. Novopress has published this follow-up by the same author on the French government's concern over problems in Muslim schools. Apparently the situation in these schools has become noticeable even to a Socialist government usually indulgent with immigrant students:

The Ministry of National Education, alerted by the mayors, has recently become alarmed by the expansion of Muslim schools, some under contract with the State, but more often not.

Note: Under contract means government subsidies and a requirement to follow government educational policy, even if the Koran is taught. A school not under contract would be free to teach primarily an Islamic-based curriculum. The same is true for Catholic schools.

Most of these establishments are under salafist influence. How can anyone be surprised since the prime minister has admitted that salafism "is winning the ideological and cultural battle". Moreover, aren't the schools the privileged place to wage this assault on children from an early age? It isn't the so-called "moderate" Muslims who choose those schools, but the partisans of a strict Islam, affiliated with the UOIF, the French branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. The others settle for public schools or… Catholic schools. It is no longer rare, in certain suburbs, to find Catholic schools where half the pupils, even 80% of the pupils in some cases, are Muslim. The French bishops finally expressed concern about this at their recent meeting in Lourdes.

While the government had for years neglected to examine this phenomenon, it decided, after the November 13 attacks, to send into the Islamic schools a battalion of education inspectors. These civil servants, until then, were not Arabic-speaking. They've just begun to realize that. It was about time! But even without understanding Arabic, the inspectors observed "pedagogical insufficiencies", according to the ministry. The essential thing was to live Islam rather than learn the French literature of the infidels. A former teacher at the Averroès high school in Lille, under contract, explained: "On the pretext of a republican educational program, one plays a double game and spreads, surreptitiously, a concept of Islam that derives from the Muslim Brotherhood."


In France, fifty Muslim schools serving five thousand pupils are currently functioning. Often they are small schools with only one or two classes and about fifteen pupils.

If they were, at the outset, financed to a great extent by foreign countries, this has changed over time. The hold of the Muslim Brotherhood, via the French-based UOIF, on Muslim education, is real. (…)

Not many schools and not many pupils. But there are millions of Muslims in France. Many of the children attend public schools, which is one reason why the public schools have deteriorated. But in addition to that there are the 2500 mosques that provide some education, though it's mostly in the form of indoctrination.

For me, the worst thing is not Muslim schools, but the infiltration of Muslims into Catholic schools. That is still a potential threat to the already struggling Catholic community of France..."

Via PI-News:

"On Saturday evening a bomb attack on a Sikh temple in Essen took place. The night before Thursday police took into custody two suspects, who partly confessed to the act. They are two 16-year olds with clear sympathies vis-à-vis the terror scene, as Essen's police chief Frank Richter said at a press conference. The two teenage jihadists were no unknowns to police. The attack resulted in three wounded and significant damage to the building the temple was in.

The 70-strong Special Police Committee is counting on more arrests. Essen's burgomaster Thomas Kufen wonders naively, "how those two got on the wrong track?" One of the perpetrators, Yusuf T., would on his Facebook page have shown sympathy for Berlin ex-rapper and IS-fighter Denis Cuspert ("Deso Dogg"). Moreover, he would have had strong ties to the Salafist undertaking "Lies!". And there is Thomas Kufen, asking himself how such a thing could happen? We ask ourselves how someone so badly informed can be a burgomaster."

So Yusuf T. was the mastermind.

The other scumbag's name is Mohammed B.

Yusuf and Mohammed.

Not Hans and Fritz.

A fact that seems to be totally lost on Essen's idiotic mayor Thomas Kufen.

More info here.

And our fatherlandish media? HLN reports that "there are no indications that terrorism is involved and that three men were arrested." As for De Standaard, it is more than happy that a fool could be found who they could quote with the following reassuring message: "There are no indications that this would be a terrorist or racist attack."

Phew! For a moment there, I feared there might somehow be an 'islam' connection!
