EU Laws Prevented Spain Deporting Barcelona Terror Mastermind Abdelbaki Es Satty

The Spanish government was prevented from deporting Catalonia terror mastermind Abdelbaki Es Satty, because a judge determined he did not pose a “serious threat to national security”.

The Spanish government tried to throw Abdelbaki Es Satty, 42, out of the country in 2014 after he served a sentence for drug smuggling.

But a judge said two EU directives gave Es Satty the right to stay in the country – because he did not pose a “serious threat”….

A written judgment reveals judge Pablo de la Rubia blocked Es Satty’s deportation because of EU laws.

The judge highlighted two EU Council Directives – numbers 2003/109/EC and 2001/40/EC – which prevented the Madrid government from booting him out.

The EU directives say member states can only deport non-EU nationals who pose a “serious and present threat to public order or national security and safety”.

The judge ruled Es Satty was not a threat – because he had only been convicted of one offence and because he was making attempts to “integrate” into Spanish society…

Citing the two EU directives, judge De la Rubia wrote: “Although the conduct of the accused is serious, there is only one offence, which is old, and it is claimed he has laid down employment roots in Spain, which demonstrate his efforts at integration into Spanish society.”

The judge added that it would be “disproportionate” to deport the Moroccan.  ExpressUK

After the failed attempt to deport Es Satty:

After successfully appealing his deportation, the drug dealer applied for asylum, ultimately allowing him to travel freely throughout the EU’s borderless Schengen Zone, where he was known to have travelled to the EU capital in Brussels, Belgium, shortly before the terror bombings there in 2016…

Es Satty became the imam of the mosque in Ripoll, where he recruited youngs Muslims to commit August’s terror attacks.

The two vehicular ramming attacks in Las Ramblas, Barcelona, and Cambrils, which Es Satty masterminded, have so far claimed 16 lives and left over 150 people injured.

It could have killed substantially more had Es Satty not been killed when the butane gas canisters and acetone peroxide (TATP) he was stockpiling in a house in Alcanar exploded, preventing its use to potentially strike tourist and religious sites, including the Catholic Basilica of la Sagrada Familia.  BreitBart

Over 1,000 Complaints Against Merkel For Treason Since 2015

There should have been a nationwide referendum – the citizens vote if they want to be invaded by ‘migrants’.

This weekend, Merkel again defended her policy of open borders for illegal migrants. “I would take all the important decisions of 2015 the same way again,” Merkel told the German newspaper Die Welt in an interview.

French news agency AFP reported:

More than 1,000 criminal complaints for high treason have been filed against German Chancellor Angela Merkel since the height of the refugee crisis in 2015, local media reported Wednesday.

Most of the complaints come from supporters of the right-wing populist Alternative for Germany party, which is poised to win seats in the federal parliament for the first time in next month’s general election, the daily Mannheimer Morgen newspaper said. (…)

Federal prosecutors in the southwestern city of Karlsruhe are responsible for investigating state security offences and are required by law to review all criminal complaints of this nature.

The Alternative for Germany (AfD) remains the only political party in the country’s electoral fray that opposes Merkel’s disastrous open borders policy. At the onset of the Migrant Crisis, the AfD had called for a nationwide referendum on the issue of mass migration, arguing that in a democracy the people had a right to decide on the single most important issue that threatens to fundamentally change the demography of Europe for the foreseeable future.

London: Native English Speaking Five-Year-Old White Christian Girl Placed In Non-English Speaking Muslim Foster Homes

The five-year-old girl’s cross was removed by the Muslim foster home.  No one in the Muslim foster homes spoke English.  The five-year old English speaking girl was encouraged to learn Arabic.  She was told that Christmas and Easter are stupid.  That European women are alcoholics.

The parents of a Christian five-year-old forced to live with Muslim foster carers allegedly ‘begged’ a council to allow her to live with her grandmother.

The Government has been urged to examine the case, which has seen a scandal-hit council place the girl in two Muslim households in the past six months, against the wishes of her family – who repeatedly asked that she be placed with family friends or relatives.DailyMail

This vulnerable young girl is still in a Muslim foster home.

The girl lived with her first carer, who is believed to have worn a niqab outside the family home, for four months. Her current carer wears a burka, which covers her face entirely, when she is out in public with the child.

This was done deliberately.

It’s not the first time Tower Hamlets has been embroiled in scandal. In 2014, a leaked government report suggested the mayor Lutfur Rahman had links to Islamic extremist groups, including one seeking to set up a Sharia state in Europe…

In April this year, an Ofsted inspection at Tower Hamlets council found ‘widespread and serious failures in the services provided to children who need help and protection’.

The council’s children’s service was rated as inadequate and found to have an ‘entrenched culture of non-compliance with basic social work standards’.

This is child abuse.  Tower Hamlets council in East London needs to be closed, fully investigated, staff fired…

A white five-year-old girl told her mother Christmas and Easter are ‘stupid’ and European women are alcoholics after being fostered to two Muslim families, it was claimed today.

The child, who is a native English speaker, also refused to take back her favourite meal – spaghetti carbonara – because it contained bacon – which Muslims do not eat.

The child, who is a native English speaker, spent the past six months in two Muslim households after being placed into foster care in Tower Hamlets, east London.

She was forced to live in Muslim foster homes where nobody spoke English and her carers took away her Christian cross and encouraged her to learn Arabic, according to The Time.

Local authority reports describe how the little girl sobbed and begged not to be returned to her niqab-wearing carer’s home, telling a social worker: ‘They don’t speak English.’

The reports detail how the child was ‘very distressed’ and claimed the foster carer had removed her Christian cross and encouraged her to learn Arabic.

The two placements were made by the scandal-hit Tower Hamlets borough council against the wishes of the girl’s family.

Local authorities are required to give due consideration to a child’s religion, racial origin and cultural and linguistic background’ when placing them into a foster home.

The girl’s mother is said to be horrified by the circumstances her daughter has been placed in.

A friend told the newspaper: ‘This is a five-year-old white girl. She was born in this country, speaks English as her first language, loves football, holds a British passport and was christened in a church.

‘She’s already suffered the huge trauma of being forcibly separated from her family. She needs surroundings in which she’ll feel secure. Instead, she’s trapped in a world where everything feels foreign and unfamiliar. That’s really scary for a young child.’  DailyMail

 

New Report Examines Anti-Semitism Violence in Europe

A new study “Antisemitic Violence in Europe”, 2005-2015 by  Johannes Due Enstad of the Oslo-based Center for Studies of the Holocaust and the University of Oslo and jointly published by both institutions looked at France, UK, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Russia.

Gatestone Institute summarizes some of the findings:

  • Examining statistics from France, Britain, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Russia, Enstad points out that one of these seven countries “clearly stands out with a very low number” of anti-Semitic incidents despite its “relatively large Jewish population…”
  • Absurdly, whenever a perpetrator draws a swastika, the Swedish government automatically considers it a “right-wing” act.
  • Enstad concludes that right-wingers, in all four of the major Western European countries in his study, “constitute a clear minority of perpetrators.” Indeed, “in France, Sweden and the UK (but not in Germany) the perpetrator was perceived to be left-wing more often than right-wing.”

The country with the lowest number of  anti-Semitic incidents is Russia.

Examining statistics from France, Britain, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Russia, Enstad points out that one of these seven countries “clearly stands out with a very low number” of anti-Semitic incidents despite its “relatively large Jewish population”; the country in question, he adds, “is also the only case in which there is little to indicate that Jews avoid displaying their identity in public.” In addition, it is the only one of the six countries in which the majority of perpetrators of anti-Semitic violence are not Muslims. Which country is Enstad referring to? Russia.

That Russia is relatively free of anti-Semitic violence may sound surprising to anyone familiar with the words Cossack and refusenik, but it actually makes sense. Would-be Jew-bashers in Russia know that if they’re arrested for committing acts of violence, the consequences won’t be pretty. In western Europe, by contrast, the courts are lenient, the terms of confinement short, and the prisons extremely comfortable. And while Muslims know that they are a protected class in Western Europe, able to commit all kinds of transgressions with near-impunity, that is far from being the case in Putin’s Russia.

If Muslims do not dominate the anti-Semitic crime statistics in Russia, who does? The answer: right-wing extremists. Although politicians and the media in Western Europe like to talk as if Jews (and others) in their countries are principally endangered by the far-right, Russia is, in fact, the only one of the seven countries in Enstad’s study in which that group does play a significant role in anti-Semitic acts.

Other Countries In Europe

What about the other countries? Denmark has few Jews, and Norway even fewer, so these two countries play a relatively minor role in Enstad’s study. That leaves Germany, Britain, France, and Sweden. Nearly 10% of French Jews say they have been physically attacked for being Jewish during the past five years; in Germany and Sweden the figure is about 7.5%, in Britain nearly 5%. Asked how often they “avoid visiting Jewish events or sites” for fear of danger, 7.9% of Jews in Sweden say they do so frequently, followed by their coreligionists in France, Germany, and Britain (where the number is only 1.2%). Asked if they “avoid wearing, carrying or displaying things” in public that would identify them as Jews, 60% of Swedish Jews say they do so “all the time” or “frequently,” with, again, France, Germany, and Britain following in that order.

Almost 50% of French Jews have considered emigrating because they feel imperiled in their own country; for Germany the figure is 25%, and for Sweden and Britain it is just under 20%.

Fiddling with semantics and statistics 

Enstad weighs official statistics from all of the countries under examination, but finds that while those from most of the countries essentially jibe with the results of independent studies, those published by both Germany and Sweden are fishy, in some cases betraying an apparent effort by officials to massage the numbers to avoid certain uncomfortable facts.

While an independent survey, for example, concludes that right-wing extremists make up a small minority of perpetrators of anti-Semitic violence in Germany, German police statistics blame most such violence on just right-wingers. Enstad, in his polite way, suggests that this discrepancy is the result of “a categorisation problem.” Could it be possible, Enstad wonders, that “German police considers antisemitism a right-wing type of ideology and thus categorises most anti-Semitic attacks as right-wing, regardless of the perpetrator’s ethnic or religious background?” Another problem is that German officials categorize some incidents — including the fire-bombing of a synagogue — as anti-Israeli, not anti-Semitic.

The Swedish government’s numbers are also dubious. While attributing a “minority” of anti-Semitic incidents to “right-wing extremists,” official Swedish reports prefer not to say who is responsible for the majority of them. The closest they come to doing so is to state that many “expressions of antisemitism” are “linked to… conflicts in the Middle East.” It seems clear that this is a euphemistic way of indicating that the perpetrators in question are Muslims. In any event, anecdotal evidence overwhelmingly supports the conclusion that most of the people who commit anti-Semitic violence in Sweden are, indeed, Muslims. For example, Judith Popinski, a concentration-camp survivor living in Malmö, told the Sunday Telegraph back in 2010 that she had begun experiencing the same “hatred” in that city that had once been directed at her by the Nazis, only this time, she said, it “comes from Muslim immigrants. The Jewish people are afraid now.” Full article at Gatestone Institute

Something ugly that has been kept hidden is coming out again in Europe.

Hundreds Of Botched Abortions At Marie Stopes Clinics In The UK

In just two months 373 women were injured in botched abortions at Marie Stopes.  One argument for legalized abortions is safety, eliminating untrained, “back-alley” abortionists.  Marie Stopes has failed to meet basic standards of care.

A report by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) shows that 373 of the abortions that took place between the months of January and February this year resulted in serious complications.

Surgical staff at the abortion giant were criticized for failing to wash their hands between procedures, and other employees were found to be inadequately trainedChristian UK

The most recent inspection of Marie Stopes clinics was headed by chief inspector of hospitals in the UK, Professor Sir Mike Richards. It follows another highly critical report last December over serious health and safety failings at Marie Stopes clinics as well as the enforced temporary suspension of all terminations last August at the Marie Stopes clinic in Norwich, following similar serious health and safety breaches.  LifeNews

Commenting on the findings at the time, pro-life MP Robert Flello said: “Women are being railroaded through an industry which gets paid for as many abortions as it can perform.”

Responding to the most recent report, Marie Stopes claimed it has made “significant progress”. Christian UK

Migrant Crisis Reaches Spain

Invading migrants are increasingly turning their attentions Spain.

Spain is on track to overtake Greece as the second-biggest gateway for migrants entering Europe by sea. The sudden surge in migration to Spain comes amid a crackdown on human smuggling along the Libya-Italy sea route, currently the main migrant point of entry to Europe.

The westward shift in migration routes from Greece and Italy implies that Spain, situated only ten miles from Africa by sea, may soon find itself at the center of Europe’s migration crisis.

More than 8,300 illegal migrants have reached Spanish shores during the first seven months of 2017 — three times as many as in all of 2016, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Thousands more migrants have entered Spain by land, primarily at the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla on the north coast of Morocco, the European Union’s only land borders with Africa. Once there, migrants are housed in temporary shelters and then moved to the Spanish mainland, from where many continue on to other parts of Europe.

In all, some 12,000 migrants have arrived in Spain so far this year, compared to 13,246 for all of 2016. By comparison, 14,156 migrants have arrived in Greece so far in 2017.

Italy remains the main migrant gateway to Europe, with around 97,000 arrivals so far this year, compared to 181,436 for all of 2016. Italy has been the main point of entry to Europe since the EU-Turkey migrant deal, signed in March 2016, shut off the route from Turkey to Greece, at one time the preferred point of entry to Europe for migrants from Asia and the Middle East. Almost 600,000 migrants have arrived in Italy during the past four years.  Gatestoneinstutue

Invading migrants have entered primarily at the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla.

EU’s border force Frontex  reveals how Spanish and Moroccan police have fortified the two cities, which have a combined population of 180,000, with razor wire fencing and moats in a bid to keep migrants out.

Once inside people are technically on EU soil and are entitled to demand transport to the Spanish mainland, from where they can travel through France and onto Calais and Britain.

In 2014 more than 18,000 “irregular sub-Saharan migrants” attempted to breach the cities’ defences according to Frontex, which says the arrival of refugees from the Middle East has further added to the chaos.

Many Syrians are now buying fake Moroccan passports which allow them to travel into Ceuta and Melilla posing as traders legally, at which point they immediately claim asylum.  Express UK

Barcelona Terrorist – 28 Year-Old Moroccan Citizen Driss Oukabir

Update:  Wrong brother.

Police are still hunting the teenager thought to have carried out the Barcelona terror attack which killed 13 and injured more than 100 people.

Moussa Oukabir, 18, is said to have stolen his older brother’s identity documents to rent the white Renault van which later ploughed into pedestrians on a busy street popular with tourists.

The teenager, said to be a Spanish national of Moroccan heritage, had previously written about ‘killing infidels’ in a chilling online post.

His brother Driss Oukabir, 28, was initially named as a suspect but later handed himself to a police station in Ripoll, a town to the north of Barcelona, not far from the French border. DailyMail

Horrifying!    A van jumped a sidewalk and plowed into pedestrians at Las Ramblas in central Barcelona.

Another witness, Isaac, said: ‘The person was accelerating. He mounted the pavement to run people over. We saw the van passing by running people over at 50 miles an hour. It was as if it was driving through a field of corn.’

‘I heard screams and a bit of a crash and then I just saw the crowd parting and this van going full pelt down the middle of the Ramblas and I immediately knew that it was a terrorist attack or something like that.’ Tom Gueller told BBC’s PM.

Police have identified the first suspect of two arrested so far in Thursday’s attack in Barcelona that killed at least 13 and wounded dozens more.

Driss Oukabir, 28, was reportedly apprehended Thursday evening by police, who say the Moroccan citizen was in the country legally.

Barcelona authorities announced on Twitter that they are “treating him as a terrorist.” The Hill

Cambrils

The Catalan government says an attack in the seaside resort town of Cambrils is linked to the vehicle attack on a popular Barcelona promenade that killed 13 people.

The region’s Interior Minister Joaquin Forn told local radio RAC1 early Friday that the Cambrils attack “follows the same trail. There is a connection.”

He did not explain what connected the attacks. He confirmed the driver in the Barcelona attack remains at large….

The police force for Spain’s Catalonia region says the five suspects shot and killed in the resort town of Cambrils were carrying bomb belts, which have been detonated by the force’s bomb squad.

Police earlier Friday morning had said five suspects had been killed in the town south of Barcelona during the police response to a terrorist attack in which five civilians and one police officer were wounded. They said two of the wounded are in serious condition. AP

Iceland Eradicating Down Syndrome By Aborting Every Baby Who Had It

A CBS news story headline:   “What kind of society do you want to live in?”: Inside the country where Down syndrome is disappearing

How was this accomplished?   Genetic science?  DNA research?  No.
Iceland is “disappearing” Down Syndrome babies by abortion.  Instead of treating the genetic disorder, Iceland is eliminating the person.

The CBS report begins:  “Few countries have come as close to eradicating Down syndrome births as Iceland.  Since prenatal screening tests were introduced in Iceland in the early 2000s, the vast majority of women — close to 100 percent — who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy.”

Just a handful of children with Down syndrome have been born in Iceland in the past decade. Two are born each year, on average, but the rest are killed in the womb. For most of the children who were born, their mothers decided not to have prenatal screening tests.

This deadly discrimination against babies with disabilities is a problem in countries across the world, not just Iceland. In 2014, the Danish government reported 98 percent of unborn babies who tested positive for Down syndrome were aborted. CBS reports the rate in France was 77 percent in 2015, 90 percent in the United Kingdom and 67 percent in the U.S. between 1995 and 2011. Some put the rate even higher in the United States, but it is difficult to determine the exact number because the U.S. government does not keep detailed statistics about abortion.

In many of these countries, late-term abortions are legal in cases of fetal anomalies, such as Down syndrome. The UK, for example, prohibits abortions after 24 weeks but allows wide exceptions for late-term abortions involving fetal anomalies.

Iceland hospital counselor Helga Sol Olafsdottir does not see any problem with the fact that so many women are having their unborn babies aborted because of Down syndrome. This systematic discrimination is simply a “woman’s choice” in her mind.  LifeNews

This is happening to Down syndrome babies for only one reason. Unlike the rest of the handicapped community, those with Down syndrome do not have a voice, do not organize, do not express the kind of outrage that makes for good teeeveeee. This population is completely innocent, guileless, helpless and at our mercy — a fact that makes their “disappearing” all the more demonic. DailyWire

Peace Envoy Tony Blair Was On United Arab Emirates’ Payroll

Tony Blair worked as an envoy and also did lucrative private work with the Gulf state. That blows out of the water Blair’s claim
that ‘there was no conflict of interest’ between his roles.

According to leaked emails seen by the Sunday Telegraph, Middle East envoy Tony Blair was paid secretly by the United Arab Emirates, which employed him as a paid adviser. The former British Prime Minister received millions in consulting fees from Abu Dhabi, according to the report.

A spokeswoman for Blair on Sunday said there was no conflict of interest regarding his activities, insisting the former PM “never used his Quartet role to pursue business interests” and “did no commercial work connected with the Israeli/Palestinian issue.”

The Quartet, which was founded in 2002, included the US, EU, Russia and the UN, and was looking for ways to revive the two-state solution. Blair took their Middle East peace envoy job shortly after leaving government in June 2007, with the aim of helping to develop the Palestinian Authority economy and its political system. It was not a great success story. BreakingIsraelNews

Turkey Starts Building ‘Security Wall’ On Iran Border

Turkey has begun building a Turkey-Iran border wall similar to the one on the Turkey-Syria border.   Ankara said the step is necessary to increase security measures at the border.

Tehran welcomed the move. “We welcome all kinds of actions that will increase security and stability at the border. We are in favour of deeper bilateral dialogue to increase coordination in this regard. Border security is important for both Iran and Turkey and the necessary efforts should be made by both countries,” Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi was quoted as saying by a local daily shortly after Turkey’s announcement in May 2017. IBT

Iran Border

Turkey has begun building a “security wall” along part of its border with Iran, regional officials said Tuesday, in a move aimed at stopping Kurdish separatists.

Pictures showing huge concrete blocks being moved into place were published on the governor’s website for the eastern Agri province.

Turkish authorities announced construction of a 144-kilometer (80-mile) long barrier in May as a means of blocking cross-border movements by members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). The entire Turkish-Iranian frontier is around 500 kilometers long.

Syrian Border

To beef up security on its Syrian border, Turkey began constructing a similar wall two years ago to prevent Islamic State group fighters moving easily between the two countries and to clamp down on illegal crossings.

In June, Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Isik said 690 kilometers out of a planned 828 kilometers of the wall had been completed along the frontier with Syria.

He added that further border security measures would be put in place once the construction had been completed. TimesOfIsrael

Hungary May Take In Iranian Christian Convert Woman Expelled From Sweden

Aideen Strandsson is an Iranian Christian facing deportation by Sweden back to certain danger in Iran.

Good for Hungary!

Hungary Prime Minister’s Office: “If she seeks help in Hungary, the Hungarian State is ready to recognise the girl from Iran as a refugee who the Swedish authorities intend to send back to the Islamic Republic despite the fact that her life would be in considerable danger on account of having converted to Christianity, Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén, who at present also performs the duties of Prime Minister due to the fact that Viktor Orbán is currently on leave, told the newspaper Magyar Idők.”

“He said: if Aideen Strandsson seeks asylum in Hungary, at the end of the procedure – which naturally also involves national security screening – she may expect a favourable ruling as Hungary does not send anyone back to a country where his or her life or physical well-being may be in danger.”

An Iranian Christian actress facing deportation from Sweden to Iran has been offered asylum by the Hungarian government.

CBN News was first to report that Sweden had rejected Aideen Strandsson’s appeal for asylum and turned her case over to Swedish border police for eventual deportation to Iran, where experts say Strandsson faced certain prison and rape, and possibly death.

Her deportation would be a clear violation of the Geneva Convention on Refugees.

The Hungarian government learned of her story and anounced on its official website that if Strandsson “seeks help in Hungary, the Hungarian State is ready to recognize the girl from Iran as a refugee…if Aideen Strandsson seeks asylum in Hungary, at the end of the procedure – which naturally also involves national security screening – she may expect a favorable ruling as Hungary does not send anyone back to a country where his or her life or physical well-being may be in danger.”

The government announcement added, “…(W)e provide help for genuine refugees, those whose lives are in direct danger on account of their religion, nationality or political affiliation. Taking in persecuted Christians is our moral and constitutional duty all at once.”  CBN
