At least two people are dead after a terror attacker brought carnage to central London today, mowing down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before attacking police with a knife in the grounds of the Houses of Parliament.

At least 10 people were been hit by a vehicle on the bridge after a 4×4 drove into pedestrians and cyclists before crashing into the gates of Parliament.

An intruder, described by a witness as ‘middle-aged and Asian’, then managed to break into the grounds of the Parliament and stabbed a police officer before he was shot and injured. The policeman is feared to have since died.

An hour after the attack, paramedics removed a man, thought to be the attacker, from the scene after extensive CPR. Another body appeared to have been left on the ground covered by a red blanket.

A doctor at St Thomas’ Hospital has said one woman has died and a number of others have been hurt – including some with ‘catastrophic’ injuries.

Prime Minister Theresa May is said to have been bundled into a car by a plain-clothes police officer and driven quickly from the scene as the attack unfolded. She will chair a meeting of the Government’s emergency Cobra committee tonight.

Scotland Yard said the attack, which comes a year to the day after the terrorist atrocities in Brussels, is being treated ‘as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise’. DailyMail

 

Culture-Enriching Afghan Gang Rapists To Be Deported From Sweden

Five Afghans claimed to be unaccompanied child refugees took an Afghan underaged boy (under 15) into the woods around Uppsala, Sweden, they raped and beat him for over an hour. One of the rapists filmed the attack and uploaded it to social media.

The district court sentenced 4 to a maximum of 15 months and 1 to 13 months in prison and no deportation back to Afghanistan.

A higher court has reversed their sentence and ordered the five to be deported.

Finally some sense in Sweden!

The five Afghans raped an underage boy in a sadistic fashion in Uppsala, but according to the district court, they should stay in Sweden since they could “be hit very hard by deportation”. But now the higher court has changed it all.

It was October 24, 2016 when the five men who claimed to be unaccompanied refugee children decided they would f*** the boy. They took him into a wooded area, where they took turns raping and beating him for over an hour.

When the Uppsala district criminal court judgment against the rapists was handed down in late December, the court decided that the perpetrators would stay in Sweden, since it could go badly for them if they were sent home to Afghanistan.

“The court finds… that on the basis of their age as well as the security situation in Afghanistan, they would be hit very hard by expulsion. The demand for expulsion is turned down for all defendants,” it said in the judgment.

But the Svea higher court issued a new judgment, and now all five so-called refugee children are to be deported. Among other reasons, the higher court based its judgment on the seriousness of the crime and the lack of connection to Sweden [on the part of the defendants]. GatesofVienna

Dutch-Turkish Diplomatic Rows Escalate

This mess started because Erdogan is looking at the large number of Turks living in Europe, especially in Germany and the Netherlands, to help secure victory in the April 16 referendum that would amend the Turkish constitution and would give the presidency sweeping new powers.

The Netherlands, which holds general elections on Wednesday, had repeatedly said Cavusoglu was not welcome to campaign for Turkey’s April referendum in the country and refused his plane permission to land.

The Dutch decision to ban Cavusoglu from visiting came after Germany and other European nations also blocked similar campaign events. France24

The Netherlands’ refusaled to grant Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu’s airplane landing permission Saturday in the Dutch city of Rotterdam, where he was scheduled to address a “yes” rally.

But later, Turkey’s Family Minister Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya appeared at the scene after reportedly travelling by car overland from Germany.

She was stopped just outside the consulate by Dutch police, and after several hours of negotiations escorted back to the German border.  France24

Erdogan Reacts

On Saturday, Erdogan reacted angrily to the decision, accusing the Dutch of being “the vestiges of Nazis”.

“They are the vestiges of the Nazis, they are fascists,” Erdogan told an Istanbul rally on Saturday, days after he angrily compared moves to block similar rallies in Germany to “Nazi practices”.

The war of words continued Sunday when Erdogan called on “all international organisations” to impose sanctions on the Netherlands, who he said was behaving “like a banana republic”.  France24

Germany Arrests Syrian ‘Refugee’ Suspected Of Executing 36 People

Fighting age young men.  Muslims countries refuse to take them in.  Mass immigration with no vetting.

Sweden imprisoned a Syrian man asylum seeker to life in prison for participation in the 2012 mass execution of seven government troops in Syria.  Now Germany.  There is no doubt ISIS freaks are entering countries as refugees.

German police arrested two Syrians and a Bosnian Thursday for alleged war crimes in Syria, including mass murder of 36 people in 2013.

A Syrian refugee identified as Abdalfatah H. A., 36, is accused of being the executioner at a mass killing of 36 government employees in 2013. He’s a suspected member of the al-Qaida-linked Al-Nusra Front.

Abdulrahman A. A., 26, was also arrested for being part of the network. He is accused of managing funds, vehicles and weapons for one of Al-Nusra Front’s combat units.

A 33-year-old Bosnian was arrested for supplying vehicles to Sunni militia Junud al-Sham. The case is not related to the Syrians.

Germany has taken more than one million refugees since the start of 2015, with many seeking protection from the wars in Syria and Iraq. Federal police officers are investigating around 30 cases of possible war crimes committed by people currently in the country, according to Der Spiegel. DailyCaller

Sweden has the highest number of rapes in Europe.

Katie Hopkins in Sweden:

One young girl of 27 — let’s call her Lucy— is now terrified of going out alone. She lives near a busy shopping centre which draws migrants from no-go zones, and dreads her walk to work and home.

Under the bridge near her flat a gang of men gathers. All day and night. They have easy access to her up a stairwell. Like little billy goat gruff, she runs across, carrying her safety spray. Scared. DailyMail

“1 in 4 Swedish women will be raped as sexual assaults increase 500%.  Sweden now has the second highest number of rapes in the world, after South Africa.” FrontPageMag

Germany

Police reports show that Germany’s migrant rape crisis continues unabated, although accurate statistics are notoriously non-existent, this in one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world. German authorities have repeatedly been accused of underreporting the true scale of the migrant crime problem in the country.

According to Federal Criminal Police Office (Bundeskriminalamt, BKA) data (page 14), in 2013, migrants (Zuwanderer) committed 599 sex crimes, or an average of two a day. In 2014, migrants committed 949 sex crimes, or around three per day. In 2015, migrants committed 1,683 sex crimes, or around five per day. During the first three quarters of 2016, migrants committed 2,790 sex crimes, or around ten per day. GateStoneInstitute

France Deradicalization Of Jihadists A “Total Fiasco”

A parliamentary report reveals, France’s attempts to deradicalize jihadis have been a complete failure.  Who would have guessed?

The report implies that deradicalization, either in specialized centers or in prisons, does not work because most Islamic radicals do not want to be deradicalized.

Although France is home to an estimated 8,250 hardcore Islamic radicals, only 17 submitted applications and just nine arrived. Not a single resident has completed the full ten-month curriculum.

The original plan was to build 13 deradicalization centers — known as Centers for Prevention, Integration and Citizenship at a cost of €40 million ($42 million).

The government’s first — and, until now, only — deradicalization center, housed in the Château de Pontourny, an isolated 18th-century manor in central France, opened in September 2016…

Although France is home to an estimated 8,250 hardcore Islamic radicals, only 59 people have inquired about going to Pontourny since its opening. Of those, only 17 submitted applications and just nine arrived. Not a single resident has completed the full ten-month curriculum.

One of the residents was a 24-year-old jihadist named Mustafa S., who was arrested during a counter-terrorism operation near Strasbourg on January 20, 2017. Police said he has links to one of the authors of the November 2015 jihadist attack on the Bataclan Theater in Paris. Mustafa S. was arrested while on leave from Pontourny: He was allegedly on his way to join the Islamic State in Syria.

After just five months of operation, Pontourny is now empty, even though it employs 27 people, including five psychologists, a psychiatrist and nine educators, at an annual cost of €2.5 million ($2.6 million).

Another one of the residents of Pontourny was a 24-year-old pregnant woman named Sabrina C., who lived in the facility from September 19 to December 15. She revealed to a local newspaper that she has never been radicalized but took advantage of Pontourny to escape her “family cocoon” and get some “fresh air”:

“At no time did I feel interested in any religion whatsoever. My family is Catholic, non-practicing, we go to church from time to time, but no more. My boyfriend wanted me to wear the headscarf, but I always refused.”

Sabrina’s mother said the deradicalization facility “was an opportunity for our daughter to attend vocational training, to learn cooking, to be near the animals.” Sabrina added that her stay there was a nightmare: “I wept every night, I did not feel in my place. In Pontourny, they treated me like a criminal.” She speculated that the only reason she was allowed into the facility was because the government needed “to make the numbers.”  GatestoneInstitute

Video: The Truth About Sweden

Jimmie Åkessonm the leader of the poll-topping anti-mass migration Sweden Democrats (SD) party has written an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal strongly criticizing those who dismissed President Trump’s remarks on the dire security and migration situation in Sweden.

Mr Åkesson wrote:

When President Trump last week raised Sweden’s problematic experience with open-door immigration, skeptics were quick to dismiss his claims. Two days later an immigrant suburb of Stockholm was racked by another riot. No one was seriously injured, though the crowd burned cars and hurled stones at police officers.

Mr. Trump did not exaggerate Sweden’s current problems. If anything, he understated them. Sweden took in about 275,000 asylum-seekers from 2014-16—more per capita than any other European country. Eighty percent of those who came in 2015 lacked passports and identification, but a majority come from Muslim nations. Islam has become Sweden’s second-largest religion. In Malmö, our third-largest city, Mohamed is the most common name for baby boys.

The effects are palpable, starting with national security. An estimated 300 Swedish citizens with immigrant backgrounds have traveled to the Middle East to fight for Islamic State. Many are now returning to Sweden and are being welcomed back with open arms by our socialist government. In December 2010 we had our first suicide attack on Swedish soil, when an Islamic terrorist tried to blow up hundreds of civilians in central Stockholm while they were shopping for Christmas presents. Thankfully the bomber killed only himself. WSJ

Problems in Sweden ignored

It’s easier to ignore this in Stockholm than it is in Malmö, a smaller city which has long been the first port of call for immigrants who arrive over the bridge from Denmark. On the day I arrived in Sweden, a 23-year-old was murdered in the city square there, shot in the head in front of several witnesses. It was the third such murder in six weeks. The local press tends not to report the ethnicity of the victim or suspects in such attacks, but Swedes have learnt to recognise immigrant-related gang crime when the see it. Foreigners who visit the wrong part of Sweden can pay a heavy price: last summer a British boy was killed in a grenade attack in Stockholm as he slept with his family.

If grenades were being thrown into children’s bedrooms in Birmingham or asylum centres were being torched in Surrey, the immigration debate in Britain might be a little different. The word “crisis” might be used. But what’s striking about Sweden is how defensive policymakers are when confronted about all this; how insistent they are that things are under control. As the violence affects just a sliver of society, the overall Swedish crime figures are quite small. Trouble can be buried in the data. Wider discussion about all of this is also discouraged by what’s known as Sweden’s “opinion corridor”, the narrow parameters into which public debate is confined. Those who step outside, and talk about the immigration problems, risk being accused of bigotry. Or, perhaps worse, giving succour to the populist Sweden Democrats, now supported by one in six Swedes.  Telegraph

In Denmark Man Charged With Blasphemy For Burning The Koran

Denmark has charged a man under a still-existing blasphemy law for burning a copy of the Koran.

The Center for Inquiry unequivocally condemned the charge of blasphemy brought by Danish prosecutors against a man for burning a copy of the Quran in an online video. CFI blasted the charge as an affront to the fundamental rights to freedom of belief and expression, and called upon Denmark to repeal its blasphemy law.

“The fundamental rights that allow a religious believer to freely profess the divinity of a holy book also allow someone else to defile that book, and still others to censure such an action,” said Michael De Dora, CFI’s main representative to the United Nations. “While the actions of the accused may be offensive and his sentiments ugly, real democracy is only possible with the freedom to criticize even the most deeply held beliefs.” CenterForInquiry

A man who filmed himself burning the Quran has become the first person to be charged under Denmark’s blasphemy law in 46 years.

The 42-year-old filmed himself burning a copy of Islam’s holy book in his back yard in December 2015. He then posted the video on the anti-Islamic Facebook group, “Yes to freedom – no to Islam” along with the words, “Consider your neighbour: it stinks when it burns.”

Danish prosecutor Jan Reckendorff announced his decision to bring charges in a press statement issued on Wednesday afternoon.

“It is the prosecution’s view that circumstances involving the burning of holy books such as the Bible and the Quran can in certain cases be a violation of the blasphemy clause, which covers public scorn or mockery of religion.”

This marks the fourth time in history anyone has been prosecuted under Denmark’s blasphemy clause: four people were sentenced for posting posters mocking Jewish teachings in 1938; two people were fined for carrying out a fake baptism at a masked ball in 1946; and two programme leaders at Danish Radio were exonerated in 1971 for airing a song mocking Christianity.

Danish prosecutors famously declined to invoke the country’s blasphemy laws in 2006, when the Jyllands-Posten newspaper published twelve cartoons picturing the Prophet Mohammed, the founder of Islam. TheLocal

‘White People Shouldn’t Breed’: Racist Attacker Spits In Baby’s Face Goes Free

The racially motivated attacker Rezzas Abdulla, spat in the face of a 9-month-old baby and shouted “white people shouldn’t breed”

Rezzas Abdulla approached Rebecca Telford while she was taking her baby Layla-Jean for a stroll in a pram in South Shields last January.

Prosecutor Emma Dowling told Newcastle Crown Court: “He lent into the pushchair and spat into the face of her daughter. As he did so, he shouted or said ‘white people shouldn’t breed.’”

When Telford confronted Abdulla, he told her to “shut the f*** up” and walked off, according to the Daily Mail.

The baby was said to have been covered in saliva. The spit had been “sprayed around” the baby’s face and a shocked passer-by gave Telford a tissue so that she could clean her baby up.

The court heard that Layla-Jean, now almost two, was taken to the doctor for tests after the attack due to fears that she could have contracted TB.

In a victim impact statement, Rebecca told police: “I am completely disgusted and distressed that a grown man, regardless of race or religion, would spit on a defenseless baby in a completely unprovoked attack. If he had just walked by I would not have even noticed him, there was no eye contact and no words had been exchanged. I had never seen him before.”

Abdulla, who has two previous convictions for race-hate attacks on white women, was later tracked down through CCTV.

On Tuesday, he was convicted of racially aggravated common assault after a trial at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court, which he did not attend.

Abdulla was sentenced to eight months imprisonment, suspended for 18 months, with rehabilitation and mental health treatment requirements. RT

He has two previous convictions for race-hate attacks on white women.

Despite previous crimes, Abdulla avoided a jail term on a suspended sentence and instead received rehabilitation and mental health treatment.  The infant’s mother says punishment may have been different if she had abused him.

The judge said “society in general” would be better served if Abdulla was allowed to continue his psychiatric treatment program.

No, society would be better served if Abdulla was jailed or deported.

When a Muslim does a race-based attack, they are suffering from mental problems, but if a white person does it, they are racist.

Muslim + race-based attack = mental illness.
Muslim + terrorist attack = mental illness.
Is Islam a mental illness?

Iraqi Christians Flee Islamic Terror, Get Rejected For Asylum By German-Muslim Immigration Employee

What is wrong with the German people.

Open Doors defines “persecution” as:

Christian persecution is any hostility experienced from the world as a result of one’s identification as a Christian.  From verbal harassment to hostile feelings, attitudes and actions, Christians in areas with severe religious restrictions pay a heavy price for their faith.   Beatings, physical torture, confinement, isolation, rape, severe punishment, imprisonment, slavery, discrimination in education and employment, and even death are just a few examples of the persecution they experience on a daily basis.

A tragic part of Christian persecution in the Middle East is those who have fled, find the persecution resumes in the West.  Christian fleeing finds Muslims placed in positions of power in Europe.  The gatekeepers are the same ones they are fleeing.

German broadcaster Welt24 reports, that a few days ago, German politician Wolfgang Bosbach met a Christian Iraqi family in Nordrhein-Westphalia (his constituency), who had recently applied for asylum in Germany.

Bosbach heard them tell how they had fled their country for fear of jihadist violence. Eventually, they reached the part of their story, in which they filled in their asylum application, in one of the foreign offices of the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF). There, they faced a BAMF employee with a headscarf, who was going to decide whether or not they, Christians, would get protected status.

Last year, 97.000 Iraqis submitted an application for asylum in Germany. In January, 64.6% of Iraqi asylum applications were successful. The family that Bosbach met however, was rejected, and they told him they felt they were at a disadvantage because of the official who handled their case. Bosbach understood their reasoning:

“I understand the applicants’ concern that their application may not have been decided upon solely on objective and prejudice-free considerations, (…) when they are Christians telling a headscarf-wearing Muslima that they have suffered persecution by Muslims.”

To Bosbach, it doesn’t matter so much, whether or not the official in question really was prejudiced, but merely that “the applicants have reason to fear that their application might not be objectively decided.” And Bosbach is of the opinion that this fear

“is not entirely ungrounded. Therefore, I cannot understand, why only Muslims in BAMF get to decide whether or not Christians, who fled from radical Muslims, get the right to stay in the Federal Republic of Germany.”

The Ministery of Internal Affairs meanwhile, appears to agree with the BAMF. It simply does not consider the headscarf, unlike the Christian cross, to be “a religious symbol in and of itself.” Only in context can it have a comparable meaning. And even that is not considered a problem, as there is no law or regulation against the wearing of religious symbols by civil servants.  Gatestone

Merkel Offers Millions In Cash Handouts For Migrants To Return Home

Election year in Germany.

Angela Merkel will offer cash handouts worth millions of pounds for migrants to leave Germany in an effort to silence criticism of her ‘open-door’ border policy.

In a highly-embarrassing U-turn over the ill-fated plan, which saw 1.2million migrants flock to the country, Mrs Merkel has now vowed to send many of them home.

The German chancellor agreed a package of measures to speed up the deportation process for an estimated 450,000 migrants who have been rejected asylum.

The controversial plan, which marks a significant toughening of previous proposals, includes a £76million scheme that will offer migrants cash incentives to leave Germany voluntarily.

Many will see the move as a desperate attempt for Miss Merkel to claw back support ahead of her challenging re-election bid in September.

Criticism of her decision to leave Germany’s borders open and welcome all refugees during Europe’s migration crisis in 2015 has led to a surge in support for anti-immigrant parties.  DailyMail
