The most extreme armed faction in Syria has threatened to destroy Canada. Speaking in flawless English, a member of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant said in an online video that after fighting in the Middle East, the group would turn on North America.
About 130 radicalized Canadians are believed to remain active abroad, while 80 have returned to Canada from various conflict zones, as Western governments are struggling to deal with radicalized citizens infatuated with Al-Qaeda ideology. (So, why is Canada allowing them back in?)
A protester convicted of wilfully promoting hatred against Muslims was sentenced to nine months in jail. Eric Brazau handed out a flyer (below) that “vilified Muslims and disparages their religion,” Ontario court Judge S. Ford Clements said in February, when he found Brazau guilty.
I’ll give you three guesses. Vandals have trashed an Islamic community centre in Canberra’s south, causing hundreds-of-thousands of dollars damage. It is the second time the Canberra Islamic Centre at Monash has been vandalised in a fortnight.
ABC(h/t DI) Centre president Azra Khan says the facility was trashed some time on Sunday. “They haven’t left anything intact,” she said. “There’s holes in the walls. The lights have been demolished, the main power board has been demolished. They knew exactly what they were doing, we can’t operate any of the lights.
“Paintings have been ripped off the walls, artworks donated to the centre have been damaged.” There is graffiti on the external walls and the library has also been upturned. Five televisions that had been replaced after the first attack were also destroyed.
Mrs Khan says the centre will have to consider further security measures. “I think it’s because it’s an Islamic centre,” she said. “Clearly they don’t like us. Clearly there’s a bunch of people who have been targeting the centre. I think it’s the same people.”
Virtually nothing. A confidential report of the French intelligence services, acquired by ‘Le Figaro,’ reveals that, in an insidious manner, a type of Islamic communitarianism is closing in on several French educational institutions.
DMF Wearing of the veil in schoolyards, demanding halal meals in the canteen, chronic absenteeism during religious festivals, clandestine prayers in the gymnasiums or corridors… In an insidious manner, Muslim communitarianism is occupying territory within the French educational system.
This confidential report exposes the facts that most politicians choose to ignore. The document, which is about 15 pages and dates from 28 November last year, contains at least 70 detailed examples of Islamization taking place all across France.
With the goal of destabilizing the teaching staff, it has been revealed by police that disciples of the fundamentalist Islamic tradition, have been trying to thwart the March 2004 law banning all religious symbols in schools. In a war of attrition which has rendered the teachers powerless, the self-proclaimed ‘young guardians of Islamic orthodoxy’ put pressure on young Muslims to ignore the rules re: religion in educational institutions.
“During Muslim religious festivals, especially Eid al Fitr, classes are virtually deserted in Muslim areas where rates of absenteeism approach 90% in the Islamic ghettos of Nîmes, Toulouse, and Marseilles. A teacher in a secondary school in the north districts says that some of his pupils pray with such fervor that they have a “blue stain on their forehead from banging their heads on the ground.”
Patriotic French youth members of ‘Generation Identitaire’ are fighting Islamization and failed multiculturalism:
A newly elected conservative mayor in a town in southern France has vowed that no municipally-run cafeterias will serve halal meals, adding fuel to a growing controversy in the wake of the National Front’s unprecedented success in last month’s local elections.
The Local(h/t Maria J) One of the new mayors who swept into power two weeks ago after historic local elections has wasted no time in stoking controversy by stating that no halal meals will be served in municipal cafeterias in his town of Béziers.
The mayor Robert Ménard, whose campaign was backed by Marine Le Pen and her National Front party told RTL radio any town establishments that serve halal will cease to do so immediately.
“You must always give people the choice to avoid eating foods that they don’t want to or cannot eat due to their religious convictions. That said, there will be no halal meals in municipal cafeterias,” Ménard said.
RTL noted that there is no official data available on which schools in Beziers, if any, serve halal meat to students who dine in the cafeterias.
Ménard’s comments come just days after National Front party leader Marine Le Pen told RTL radio the nearly dozen French cities captured by her party would not allow “religious requirements” to dictatethe composition of school lunches.
Le Pen told a French radio station that in towns won by the party’s candidates school cafeterias will no longer serve non-pork substitution meals, which generally go to Muslim children.
Despite a tiny Muslim population in the Czech Republic, a new project launched by the Muslims In Czech Schoolchildren’s Eyes group and approved by the Education Ministry, offers seminars and lectures about the quran, burkas, and jihad that would acquaint pupils with Islam and the life and habits of Muslims.
Prague Post(h/t Mike F) The lecturers want to explain to Czech children what a burka is and why some Muslim women wear it, and also what the Quran says about jihad, LN writes, citing the Muslimove.cz web page.

The seminars, including games, are to provide information to Czech kids and dismiss certain prejudices and stereotypes linked to Islam, the paper writes.
During a discussion on sexual mores in Muslim cultures, Muslim students explain why Muslim boys won’t have sex with Muslim girls.
“School lessons do not pay sufficient attention to Islam. Pupils want to learn more about it,” the project’s co-author Shadi Shannah is quoted as saying.
The Muslim community in the Czech Republic is very small, but still it raises strong emotions. Muslim-related issues appear almost daily in TV news, newspapers and Internet debates.
However, regular school lessons touch on them only marginally, as a result of which most pupils are unable to critically assess the media information,” the authors write on Muslimove.cz. The Education Ministry has granted its auspices to the project. It did so based on a previous expert assessment of whether the offered workshops and lectures are objective, LN writes.
The project’s sponsors include the U.S. Embassy in Prague and the Anna Lindh Foundation, an intergovernmental organization. The EU mission in Prague and the Prague Municipal Library also cooperate in it. The project reacts to a survey its authors had made in 2013 and in which pupils showed interest in learning more about Islam.
“Most pupils said they would like to learn more. They said they drew information about religion mainly from the media that are often very critical of Islam,” one of the co-authors, Klára Popovová, told LN. She said the project has raised protests from the group called We Don’t Want Islam in the Czech Republic.
“They sent me a few offending emails along with the demand that we should not promote Islam at schools. However, our project is no propaganda. Our only goal is to provoke a discussion and refute the media stereotypes,” Popovová said.
Last Friday, in Deurne, two Moroccan Muslim invaders were shot and killed by a jeweller when they tried to rob her shop. The state prosecutor has not charged her with a crime, saying that it appeared to be a case of self-defense. Needless to say, Moroccan Muslim fellow thugs are not happy about this decision, denouncing the shop owner as a “murderer.”
Sweden’s leftist establishment and media believe a cornerstone of their perfect society is multiculturalism: large scale immigration from some of the poorest, most backward nations on earth. Swedes who disagree with that plan risk being labeled racist, fascist, Nazi.
Amun Abdullahi, a journalist for Swedish radio, left last year and returned to her native Somalia after she was attacked in the Swedish media over her news report about radical Muslim immigrants in Sweden. She told Swedish television that Mogadishu was safer than then immigrant areas in Stockholm.
Assimilation (of Muslims) is completely out of the question. All mainstream political parties would laugh [at the word 'assimilation']. [To them] the word ‘assimilation’ is a Nazi word.
FRONT NATIONAL leader Marine Le Pen said on Friday it would prevent schools from offering non-pork alternatives to Muslim pupils in the 11 towns it won in local elections, saying such arrangements were contrary to France’s secular values.
UK Daily Mail(h/t James) France’s republic has a strict secular tradition enforceable by law, but faith-related demands have risen in recent years, especially from the country’s five-million-strong Muslim minority, the largest in Europe.
‘We will not accept any religious demands in school menus,’ Le Pen told RTL radio. ‘There is no reason for religion to enter the public sphere, that’s the law.’ Pork is forbidden under Muslim and Jewish dietary laws. (But ONLY Muslims make a stink about it, Jews just bring their own alternative to school)
In the eastern town of Hayanges FN mayor Fabien Engelmann has also proposed a ‘Pork Fest’ to liven up the town centre, a plan he insists is not designed to offend Muslims but which will do little to alleviate high local unemployment.
The anti-(Muslim)immigrant National Front has consistently bemoaned the rising influence of Islam in French pubic life. France has seen periodic controversies over schools that substitute beef or chicken for pork from menus to cater to Muslim children.
Some of the FN’s new mayors have complained there are too many halal shops in their towns.
The party won control of 11 town halls and a large district in the port city of Marseille in municipal elections on Sunday, more than double its record from the 1990s.
Le Pen hailed the victory as showing the party had finally established itself as France’s third political force behind ruling Socialists and mainstream conservatives, and predicts a strong showing in May’s European Parliament elections.
A 37-year-old Muslim man from Ghana left a trail of devastation at the weekend in Vienna’s Stephansdom. The asylum seeker is also suspected of raging in three other churches in the capital and having destroyed numerous statues, baptismal fonts and crucifixes.
Diversity Macht FreiThe man indicated that ‘Allah had ordered him’,” explained police spokesman Roman Hahslinger on Tuesday evening. The 37-year-old said that in his view human beings were not allowed to create holy images.
In November of the previous year, the 37-year-old reached Austrian soil and made an application for asylum. The man from Ghana was originally housed in Traiskirchen, but he didn’t stay long there: on 1st January the man showed his exceptional aggressiveness for the first time, threatened a care worked with a stone and finally beat him unconscious. He was then thrown out of the asylum home.
With the words “Down with your statues, you are all unbelievers” he pushed the statue of the Saint Judas Thaddäus from its base in the Stephansdom on Saturday night. Cathedral staff and witnesses of the act were then able to finally overpower the raging man. But the state prosecutor released him again. (Why is he still in Austria?)
Saama Sarsour is the same Swedish Muslim troublemaker who was thrown out of Israel when she arrived at Ben Gurion Airport a few years ago.
That’s not the flag of Sweden behind Saama Sarsour
The LocalA Swedish woman wearing a Muslim headscarf claims security staff at a small northern airport tugged on her hijab in public rather than take up her offer to take it off away from prying eyes.
The female guard asked me ‘What’s on your head’,” recalled state employee Saama Sarsour, who told the Svenska Dagbladet (SvD) newspaper about her treatment at Arvidsjaur airport in northern Sweden.
After the metal detector beeped, Sarsour was asked to remove the headbag. She responded by asking if the guard could first scan the rest of her body and if she could remove her scarf in a different room, not in public. “Then the woman grabbed the headbag and started yanking it,” Sarsour told SvD. “I was totally shocked.”
Sarsour, who works for the social security agency Skatteverket, and her employer decided to report the female guard to the police, who decided not to open an investigation into harassment.
Airport CEO Ralf Lundberg dodged the question of whether his staff had been taught about religious consideration when he spoke to the paper. “They did their job. All have gone through thorough education and training to make sure no one takes dangerous objects through security.”
Headbag-clad Muslims take part in an anti-discrimination demo in Sweden
In 2010, Saama Sarsour arrived in Israel as part of a pro-Palestinian activist group looking to stir up trouble. The group complained that they were subjected to “pure racism” and “humiliating treatment” by the Israelis. (What ‘race’ is Islam?)
SwedenIsrael The group that the Swedish delegation were representing is known as “Låt oss leva i fred” (let us live in peace). This groups is a cooperative effort between the “Palestinian Congregation” in Stockholm as well as the organization “Jews for Peace Between Israel and Palestine”(Judar för fred mellan Israel och Palestina (JIPF).

The latter organization is represented by Dror Feiler, the same Feiler who created an art installation in Stockholm glorifying Palestinian suicide terrorism; the exhibition led to strained relations between Israel and Sweden. The organization JIPF also cooperates with the group “European Jews for Peace”. While representing the group “European Jews for Peace”, Feiler in February this year spoke at an illegal “boycott Israel” meeting.
Those unfamiliar with the organization “Jews for peace between Israel and Palestine” should be aware that they also have a clear-cut anti-Israeli agenda. If this is not clearly manifested by choosing Dror Feiler to be their representative, it can further be seen on the group’s website which declares that JIPF strives to:
* disrupt the Swedish governments’ military cooperation with Israel * encourage the Swedish government to suspend the association agreement between the EU and Israel.
Peaceful protester, Eric Brazau was arrested for dressing up like a Muslim and reading quotes from the quran as well as a list of “benefits” you get for being a religious fanatic in Islam. It was a satirical performance which exposed facts about Islam that Muslims would prefer people not hear.
Eric Brazau says he will appeal his sentence.
The Star: (h/t Robert F) A ‘notorious’ protester convicted of wilfully promoting hatred against Muslims and criminally harassing a Muslim man and his family was sentenced Tuesday to nine months in jail. Eric Brazau handed out a flyer that “vilified Muslims and disparages their religion,” Ontario court Judge S. Ford Clements said in February, when he found Brazau guilty.
Brazau handed out the flyer, which contained many offensive truthful references to Islam and Muslims, in August and September 2012. While distributing it, Brazau sometimes yelled obscenities about Islam “in a tone of voice that suggested he was very angry and had little interest in debate,” Clements said.
Brazau had argued that he did not intend to promote hate speech; instead he wanted to stimulate debate about censorship, “blasphemy laws” and Sharia law, Clements said.
Clements disagreed. “He knew the material would deeply wound and anger Muslims,” said Clements. The content was not humorous, ironic or satirical, he said. “Mr. Brazau is far too intelligent to believe this to be so.”
The flyer also contained a somewhat blurred photograph of a Muslim family on a downtown Toronto street. The man in the photo testified that Brazau called him a “terrorist” on the day Brazau took the photo.
In a second interaction a few weeks later on a sidewalk, the man, whose name is protected by a publication ban, said that Brazau approached him aggressively while photographing the family, making him “concerned and fearful.” Clements found this to be criminal harassment.
During sentencing submissions, Crown prosecutor Derek Ishak described Brazau as an “unrepentant hatemonger … who abused his right to freedom of speech in a planned, deliberate manner,” Clements said Tuesday in his sentencing decision.
However, Clements said that while Brazau’s conduct was “despicable” and his beliefs “repugnant,” the maximum sentence of six months for a summary conviction on willfully promoting hatred was unwarranted.
He also noted the defence submission that Brazau committed his offences in public, where he was easily identifiable, rather than by stealth. Instead, he gave Brazau a four-month sentence, plus two months for criminal harassment and mischief and three months for breach of probation by not keeping the peace. Brazau, who had spent nine months in pre-trial custody, was sentenced to time served.
Clements declined to ban Brazau from distributing flyers, since that could impede his right to freedom of expression. Outside the court, Brazau said he will appeal his sentence. He says he is aware the flyer was “problematic” and “would offend.”
But his voice won’t be silenced, Brazau added, though he will keep in mind the hate speech laws, which he says he has learned to navigate over the past few months.
“Hatred is the harvest he wanted to gather,” Clements said in his conviction decision, quoting William Butler Yeats. “I find this is true of Mr. Brazau.”
If recent local elections are any indication, Le Pen and her patriotic party stand a very good chance.
10% seems to be the magic number. When a Western country reaches critical mass with a population that reaches or exceeds 10% Muslim, people wake up and start to fight back against rampant Islamization. France is at 10 – 12% Muslim. The French are now wide awake. Vive la Front National! Vive la France!
