Frenchmen who have been condemned for terror acts can lose their citizenship. The French Constitutional Council in Paris made this judgment and declared a corresponding passage in the book of civil law as constitutional. Die ZEIT reported yesterday regarding this interesting possibility with our French neighbors. Even if such a thing is presumably (still) undoable among us, we should give thought to how we want to proceed in the future with foreign felonious or terrorist perpetrators of violence.

After the islamic terror in Paris, public debate could give the impression that the heart of free speech was solely the right to offend religions such as Islam. Satire and humor were emphasized as essential elements of a society of free speech. Paris had the effect of causing media and politicians to stand in long lines in order to protect the free expression of opinion: “The murders were an attack against all of us!” “They were an attack on our values.” “The free word is the foundation of open society!” “Europe must show that we stand on the free word.” The handling of Pegida in Dresden showed in truth just how these politicians and media deal with freedom of speech and what they mean by it.
Before there’s a shot, there’s a warning. Islam is “peace”! And constantly, when an islamic act of terror happens, leaders, governing organizations, the leftists and Green media, politicians and parties of Europe blow loudly from the same horn: “Don’t worry: none of this has anything to do with the true Islam!”

As muscles atrophy when not exercised anymore, likewise our feeling toward “freedom” has atrophied – because we haven’t demanded it and put it to the test. “Freedom” never makes it easy for us because it ever demands that positions be accepted that are not our own. This most certainly is the reason why the clear stand for “freedom,” even in enlightened societies, has become somewhat rare, and a parliamentary representation of “freedom” more the exception than the rule. The website of the German Association of Employers will in the future be presenting on a regular basis texts by authors that are closely tied with the debate about the question “What is freedom and how much of it can we stand?”, from Roland Baader to Sloterdijk to Müller-Armack. Roland Baader takes up the beginning with the text “The Cobbler, the Farmer and the Prince (Link to German original).” Translation below.
In the Daily Mail can be read today that the publishers of the Oxford University Press (OUP), one of the largest and most renowned publishing houses in Europe have forbidden their schoolbook authors from using pigs or pork themes in their books, since these could offend Jews and Muslims. According to Daily Mail, this venture was announced Tuesday during a program on “Radio 4 Today” regarding the subject of free speech.
As citizens of the Republic of Diversity, we have become very jaded – but we still continue to be surprised. Simple people bring totally simple desires to the street: It’s possible to distinguish between refugees and immigrants. One can can only guess who, as a refugee, is truly also persecuted and outcast. The asylum law should not be warped so much as to become the back door for unqualified mass immigration. Attention should be given to immigration so that those who come here fit in with us. Excessive demand by difficult immigrant groups should be avoided. What of all this is so difficult to understand?
I am a religion-friendly atheist. I don’t believe in God, but Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism don’t bother me either.
It’s just Islam bothers me much more and more. The broad, disproportionate criminality of young men with a Muslim background bothers me. The Islam’s murderous disregard for women and homosexuals bothers me.
Forced marriages, “peace judges,” “honor killings” bother me.
And antisemitic pogroms bother me more than producing reasonably civilized words.
Now I ask myself: is religion an obstacle to integration? My impression: not always. But with Islam, definitely so. With asylum and integration, this should be of particular consideration!
I don’t need any imported racism, and neither do I need whatever else Islam stands for.

This past weekend, anti-Israel demonstrations took place again all over Germany [and the US, see here and here, among other small(!) towns]. When researching the social networks, one encounters a multitude of video and photo material that doubtlessly remind one of civil war. In Mannheim, around 3000 demonstrators gathered to vent their hate of Jews. Mannheim mayor Peter Kurz leading up to the demonstrations stirred representatives of the Jewish community, representatives of islamic associations, church people, etc. to make a mutual declaration and in doing so hopes that at least a part of the organizers felt obligated to a peaceful demonstration process.
It was only a question of time as to when Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan (photo) would chime in with the disgusting Moslem anti-Israel = anti-Jewish concert going on. But the extermination of every Jew is the highest duty of a devout apostle of Allah. Thus the Turkish Obernazi seized the Nazi muzzle and reviled Israel as being worse than Hitler: The Israelis have “no conscience, no honor, no pride.”
Die WELT reports:
Attacking Israel is currently en vogue. Anyone can do this apparently, at least verbally. The ready argument is that the “Israel conflict is complicated.”Pat Condell states it in two sentences: “Everything one needs to know about the Middle East conflict is: The Jews want peace, the Arabs don’t because the Arabs hate the Jews for religious reasons and want them dead.” And he asks: “What would you do if you were the Israeli prime minister? How would you deal with people who want you and your entire population dead?”

All do-gooders listen up because the time is getting closer for special consideration for our beloved Muslim citizens on all sides. Starting June 28 it is once again Ramadan. You must show strong nerves when the devout, starving and half thirsty colleagues race away from the workplace. The fact that they aren’t as resilient as a person who eats and drinks properly is a given in itself, therefore you can then take over a part of their work right along with yours.
This brutal attack took place in a card playing room in the city of Hotan in the western Chinese province of Xinjiang. Three Waziri Moslems suddenly attacked seveal players with knives and axes. Four people were injured in the action.
(By Michael Stürzenberger)
Motive #1: Gambling is prohibited in Islam. Motive #2: Casting Koran-conforming terror and fear into the hearts of the infidel Chinese to intimidate them. Motive #3: Forcing their Waziri-islamic theocracy in the province of Xinjiang.
Something positive from the incident: Two of the attackers were killed by Chinese security forces before they could do anything worse, one injured.
MUHAMMAD: THE BIG, BAD WOLF
Hey Germans! Muhammad Was a Big, Bad Wolf,
Not a ‘Prophet of Peace’
Germany Adds Lessons in Islam in Schools to
Better Blend Its Melting Pot
Germany has a long history of creating fantastic fairytales. It was the Brothers Grimm, who catalogued such great fairytales as Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood and many more.
The elites of Germany have now embarked on the creation of two of the ever-greatest fairytales in history – that (1) Islam is a ‘religion of peace’, and (2) Muhammad was a ‘prophet of peace’.
In an odious distortion of the World Cup 2014 logo, the official Palestinian Authority daily printed today a cartoon celebrating the kidnapping of three Israeli youths last Thursday night, June 12, 2014. Instead of the famous logo of the World Cup 2014, in which three victorious hands hold the globe, together creating the prestigious trophy, the PA cartoon shows a “trophy” of three hands holding three people with their hands up in surrender. Instead of the text “Brasil” below the “trophy,” the word “Khalil” is written – Arabic for Hebron, a city near where the Israeli youths were kidnapped.
Sura 2:286 – So help us TO VICTORY over the people of the infidels “kuffar” … “It is an encounter that is the burning desire of all those who yearn for peace and dream of a world in which men and women can live as brothers and sisters and not as opponents or as enemies,” such was the description by Pope Franciscus on Saturday evening 6/8/2014 of the prayer for peace by the three religions initiated by him for the Middle East. “… not as opponents or enemies,” the pope said; shortly afterward a Muslim imam recited three verses from the second sura of the Koran: (Sura of the cow 2: 284-286) “You are our protector. So help us TO VICTORY over the people of the infidels!” In other words: in the so-called prayer for peace, the Koran was quoted with the demand to exterminate the infidels (kuffar).”
A financial scandal among the Greenpeace saviors of the world: The environmental protection organization has lost 3.8 million euros in currency exchange through the “seriously mistaken estimate” of an employee at the Greenpeace headquarters in Amsterdam. Der “Spiegel” reported. According to it, the employee in the financial department was counting on a sinking euro rate, but made a fundamental error in his estimate. The employee has been terminated, Mike Townsley of Greenpeace International said to “Spiegel.” However the damages cannot be recovered this way. The money, according to “Spiegel,” came from donations that were transferred from “financially strong Greenpeace national organizations such as the German one to the headquarters in Holland” … (Hmmm? What to do? It really is clear! We must donate more because the world still needs to be saved!)
In Iraq, ISIS, the most dangerous terror group in the world according to BILD, according to its own statements has killed hundreds of Shiites in the name of Islam. The group “Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant” (ISIS) just published several photos that show the deportation of hundreds of people. ISIS took over the northern Iraqi city of Mossul last week and is beginning “ethnic cleansing” in agreement with the Koran. For Sunnis, Shiites are apostates from the faith who deserve in agreement with the Sharia to be eliminated in the name of Allah.
The hideous uniting of Hamas and Fatah, which is highly praised and recognized by the West, is showing its first fruits since the Palestinian unity government under the leadership of previous prime minister Rami Hamdallah was sworn in at the beginning of the month. The Palestinian “Islamic Jihad” in Gaza, an agreement partner in this alliance, has kidnapped three Jewish boys in order to force the liberation of incarcerated terrorists.
Apparently the poor prognoses published shortly before the EU election either wrong or intentionally falsified: The German economic news reports that Wilders came in second place in The Netherlands with his party and got four seats. He shares second place with the Pro-EU party “Democrats 66.” The election victors are the Christian Democrats with five seats. Official results will be given only in the next few days.
