Awesome! Star Swedish Immigrant Arrested for Belgium Bombings
The Swiss have such a successful program that Muslim Osama Krayem felt so much at home he went ahead and blessed Belgium with the best aspects of his culture as well.
The Syrian-origin Swedish passport holder arrested in Belgium last week for his involvement in the Brussels bomb attacks is a former poster boy for Sweden’s efforts at integrating migrants into their society.Isn't he just a special snowflake.
Now accused of murder, and captured on CCTV cameras carrying bags which contained the explosive devices which killed 32 civilians, Islamist Osama Krayem had once been hailed as a model of integration. A former employee of the city of Malmo, at the age of 11 Osama starred in a documentary about migrants in Sweden.
Both of Osama’s parents are Syrian migrants to Sweden, and have told tabloid Aftonbladet they wanted to see their son integrate into Swedish society. The family featured in a 2005 documentary called ‘Without Borders — A Film About Sport And Integration’, in which football-mad Krayem demonstrated how the Malmo football team had helped him settle into Swedish society.
I just love a story about peace and tolerance and Eurabia.

Three Four Officers Hurt in Belgium Terror Raid One Terrorist Dead
elgian security forces are hunting for at least two men after shots were fired at police during a counter-terrorism raid in the capital, Brussels.We hope these Sharia4Belgium clowns and caught quickly.
The incident took place in the southern suburb of Forest. Three officers were reportedly hurt, one of them severely.
A prosecutor said the raid was linked to the Paris attacks which killed 130 people last November.
Belgian police have been trying to track down militants from the self-styled Islamic State.
After Tuesday's incident, police said they were pursuing at least two suspects who escaped over rooftops.

Finnish Anti-Rape Video Tell Women To Use The Force To Repel Immigrant Attackers (bumped)
Gee, why didn't women think of these tactics before?
I guarantee, a man came up with this PSA. A very effeminate progressive male, probably still a virgin...
Below the fold, a parody of the ad. Sadly, the parody seems to be just about as useful as the Finnish PSA.

Sandcrawler PSA: Pepper Spraying Your Rapist Unlawful in Denmark Also Racist
he teenager told police that she was attacked in central Sønderborg on Wednesday at around 10pm by a dark-skinned English-speaking man. She said the man knocked her to the ground and then unbuttoned her pants and attempted to undress her.Well not quite illegal the Danish police have pepper spray.
The girl was able to save herself from further assault by using pepper spray on the attacker, but now she may be the one who ends up in legal trouble.
“It is illegal to possess and use pepper spray, so she will likely be charged for that,” local police spokesman Knud Kirsten told TV Syd.
Of course the Danish police wanted to make sure THEY are the only ones with pepper spray.
Because like guns, only the government should have weapons. Or so the liberal argument goes, we wouldn't want anyone resisting the police. But the police might need pepper spray, but screw the citizen, after all in an emergency the police are only 20 to 30 minutes away!
Of course pepper spray has its drawbacks, the rapist survives to rape again, whereas if this woman was armed, she could have saved other women from suffering the same fate at the hands of this person while also providing a deterrent for others. I mean if Achmed's brains get sucked out the back of his head while attempting a rape then Ali and Mohammed are less likely to try their luck at it.

Good News! Tiny Minority of 355,500 of 395,000 Dutch/Turk Muslims Support Terrorism
or hundreds of thousands of Dutch youth, the heroes of the day are neither film stars nor comedians: they are the jihadists of the Islamic State.So put them on a plane for Raqqa and revoke their passports, the US will do the rest.
That is the result of a recent study by Dutch research company Motivaction, which found that 90 percent of Dutch Turks ages 18-35 consider the Islamic State (IS or ISIS) members heroes, and enthusiastically support their friends and neighbors who travel to Syria to join them. And 48 percent of Holland's 18-35-year-old Moroccan immigrants agree.
(For reference, the latest official figures count more than 368,000 Moroccan immigrants – first and second generation – in the Netherlands, and more than 395,000 Turks in a national population numbering 16.8 million.)
This is not the first time European Muslims have been shown to support the horrors of violent jihad: earlier this year, British research group ICM determined that up to 15 percent of French youth (between the ages of 18-24) approve of ISIS, as do 11 percent of British between the ages of 35-44.

UK Home Secretary Theresa May Bans Robert Spencer
In a striking blow against freedom, the British government has banned us from entering the country. Muhammad al-Arifi, who has advocated Jew-hatred, wife-beating, and jihad violence, entered the U.K. recently with no difficulty. In not allowing us into the country solely because of our true and accurate statements about Islam, the British government is behaving like a de facto Islamic state. The nation that gave the world the Magna Carta is dead.
UPDATE by DMartyr - THIS is what May wrote to justify Spencer's exclusion:
You are reported to have stated the following:The Home Seurity considers that should you be allowed to enter the UK you would continue to enspouse such views. In doing so, you would be committing listed behaviours and would therefore be behaving in a way that is not conductive to the public good.
- "...it [Islam] is a religion and a belief system that mandates warfare against unbelievers for the purpose of establishing a societal model that is absolutely incompatible with Western society because media and general government unwillingness to face the sources of Islamic terrorism these things remain largely unknown."
Spoken like a good dhimmi. Read the entire letter to Spencer HERE.

Sweden Grants Radical Muslims Asylum
Rejects Afghan Khalid Saheed
Our good friend Phyllis Chesler is writing on his behalf.
Letter To The Government of Sweden and Migration Board:Please send this on to your Senators, elected representatives and the President.
I am writing to you on behalf of Khalid Saeed’s petition to remain in Sweden, a petition which you have denied. I implore you to revisit his case.
His life—and Sweden’s reputation for fairness and morality are both at stake.
Khalid Saeed and his family have been living in Sweden since 2009. Saeed joined the 5% of the Swedish population who are Muslims. However, unlike Muslims who have rioted and/or who have refused to assimilate in Sweden, Khalid is a pro-Western apostate.
This is precisely why he fled Pakistan. Apostasy is a capital crime in Islam, and so is any preference shown to Western ways of thought.
Khalid Saeed was a car dealer in Islamabad, Pakistan. He is married and has three children. Once he made his views known, he was threatened. He fled. In his own words, he claims:
“I have never worshipped Allah nor do I or my wife, Asia, believe in Islam as the only truth for mankind. I have distanced myself from Islam years ago. That is my curse. My wife, the mother to our children, agrees. She will not see her daughter brought up in a society where women are only half humans and neither will I.
"As parents we also do not want to stand (helpless) on the side line and watch our two lovely and open-minded boys being forced into any kind of holy jihad group or society whose only objective is to oppress, threaten, and intimidate others to blindly follow the pitiless words of the profane muslim prophet Mohammad and his followers’ medieval Islamic sharia laws.”
Anyone who sounds like this in Pakistan, or in any Pakistani Muslim community in the world is a dead man.
And yet, you have refused him asylum in Sweden. I strongly disagree with your ruling on his application for asylum.
I assume you are familiar with the fate of apostates: Muslims who convert to Christianity or who describe themselves as “humanists” or “secularists,” or who believe in freedom of religion.
Sweden’s own 2010 Report on Human Rights in Pakistan confirms that religious minorities are severely persecuted in Pakistan as are any people who are in favor of free speech, academic freedom, and independent thought. For example, the governor of the Punjab (in Pakistan) was assassinated when he wanted to pursue reforms against blasphemy laws.
The International Humanist and Ethical Union, which was founded in Amsterdam, spent years campaigning for the life of physician and human rights activist Dr. Younus Sheikh who languished on Death Row in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.
We know that many Muslims are not friendly toward any infidel religion, including Christians, Hindus, Jews, Buddhists, etc. Christians have been—and still are—being savagely persecuted in Muslim lands. I and many others have written about this often. Author and apostate Nonie Darwish and ex-Muslim secularist Ibn Warraq have both spoken out about this burning issue.
Christians are being savagely persecuted in Egypt and all across the Middle East and Islamic world.
In Pakistan, Christians have literally been crucified, teenaged Christian girls have been kidnapped, raped, then forced to marry their rapists and convert to Islam.
Saudi Arabia, Iran, Afghanistan, do not allow Christians, Jews, or other “infidels” to pray openly or to build any or new houses of worship.
The Arab Muslim Middle East is almost completely “Judenrein,” (free of Jews) since more than 800,000 Arab Jews were exiled or forced to flee their countries between 1948-1968.
In 2010, in Pakistan, a Muslim mob attacked a Christian man and slaughtered him with pick-axes for refusing to convert to Islam.
According to Mina Nevisa, an Iranian Muslim convert to Christianity who wrote a book about her experiences, both she and her female cousin were attending an underground church in Teheran. Nevis fled Iran together with her husband. Her cousin was not so lucky. “She was arrested on charges of Apostasy and taken to Evin prison, where she was raped, tortured, and then killed by a firing squad. The pastor was also killed.”
The situation for Muslim apostates in Europe is also perilous. High profile apostates, such as Egyptian-Italian Magdi Christiano Allam, who was converted to Catholicism by the Pope, lives with six round-the-clock bodyguards. Aayan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-Dutch-American apostate-secularist, also requires a full time security detail. People who do not have public profiles, who are not academics, intellectuals, politicians, or public speakers, also face similar problems.
In 2001, “Sabatina James” (a pseudonym) fled from Austria to Germany and went into hiding to escape being honor-murdered by her family after she converted from Islam to Christianity. Her family had immigrated from Pakistan.
“Sabatina’s” troubles began when she was 15 years old. Because she dared to wear lipstick and blue jeans, she was mercilessly beaten. When she rejected marriage to a cousin, “Sabatina” was sent to a Qur’anic school in Lahore, where she was repeatedly flogged. She finally agreed to the marriage—but only in order to be able to return to Austria. Then, when she was 19 years old, she fled.
In 2009, Iraqi-born Vian Bakir Fatah was stabbed to death by her Iraqi ex-husband in Norway. She had converted to Christianity and had a new boyfriend. Her ex-husband murdered her in the presence of their four children.
In the past, Sweden has presumably been at the forefront of human rights activism and legislation. Now, in this case, it seems that Sweden has failed its own stated ideals.
Given the information that I and others are providing, I strongly urge you to reconsider Khalid Saeed’s case. If not, his blood, and the blood of his wife and children will be on Swedish hands.
Signed: Professor Phyllis Chesler
If the country of Sweden doesn't do the right thing then the least we can do is offer Khalid Saheed a place here where he can be free. Damn crying shame we let Afghanistan keep this sixth century Sharia BS in its constitution to start with.
Also please support Phyllis' writing here.

Good News: Islamists Will "Use Force" to Institute Sharia in .... LONDON
We've been writing about the Islamists at Muslims Against the Crusades wanting to create sharia zones now for a few weeks, but this RT report is pretty good (for instance, it reports that the Sharia would require punishment for apostasy) and it notes that Abu Izzadeen and Anjem Choudary have organized gangs to not only verbally harass Muslims not living up to their version of Islamic standards, but also to use physical force to get rid of vices they deem un-Islamic.

Meet Jihad Kathie (Sticky) Jawa Report Cited!
A 46-year-old Indiana grandmother is under investigation for her possible ties to suspected and convicted international terrorists, FoxNews.com has learned.Read more:
Muslim-convert Kathie Smith, 46, a U.S. citizen living in Indianapolis who has blogged about her granddaughter, last year married a suspected German jihadist, and has been flying back and forth between the U.S. and Germany as recently as two weeks ago.
A pro-jihadist video featuring Smith and her husband – alongside photos of members of the Islamic Jihad Union charged with plotting failed terror attacks against U.S. targets in Germany -- is being investigated by the Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center. The center is a counterterror intelligence clearinghouse staffed by law enforcement officers from local and federal agencies, including the FBI and Department of Homeland Security.
...On Facebook, he is "friends" with the notorious Al Qaeda English-language online magazine Inspire, thought to be principally authored by American-turned-Muslim radical Samir Khan. Salahudin also has used his online posts to call for the deaths of U.S. citizens, military and government leaders, and recently joined in on another user’s thinly veiled threats against Condoleezza Rice, according to postings discovered by FoxNews.com and screen shots provided by the Jawa Report, a watchdog blog that has been following the online activities of Smith and her husband.
Here's the video in question. I've quite a bit more here. Will add some updates.
Jihad Kathie's husband is also known as Salahudin Ibn Jafar in many places. He's a longstanding Jihadi propagandist and al-Qaeda supporter. What kind of folks does he hang out with. Well, despite his furious scrubbing of his Scribbed account the last few days. And it was way late scrubbing. We can see some familiar faces.
Among them Yousef al-Khattab of Revolution Muslim as well as Samir Khan of al-Qaeda.
So somewhere this dude is running around Germany with Jihad on the brain, a large assault rifle and feeling the heat.

VBIED Splodes in Stockholm (Updated/Rebumped Again) Islamic Terrorism Confirmed (Exclusive Images of Bomber Must Cite Jawa Report) Sticky
Update IX (12/13/2010) by DMartyr: Vlad Tepes has video and audio from the explosion. (SH: Note the dude holding the sign, splodey dope was a sign carrier also. Anyone make out what is on the sign?):
Begin original post
STOCKHOLM -- Two explosions shook central Stockholm on Saturday, killing one person and injuring two, rescue officials said.Few details except one familiar item. The vehicle was stuffed with gas canisters, which I take as propane cylinders and gasoline. Gee I wonder if anyone has tried that before?
Police spokeswoman Petra Sjolander said a car exploded near Drottninggatan, a busy shopping street in the center of the city. Shortly afterward, a second explosion was heard higher up on the same street, and a man was found injured on the ground. He was later pronounced dead.
..."I saw some people crying, perhaps from the chock," he said. "There was a man lying on the ground with blood coming out in the area of his belly, and with his personal belongings scattered around him."
Gabiro said the blast was "quite loud" and he saw smoke coming from the area where the man was lying.
And it appears they wanted to blow up Christmas, excuse me, Cross Worshiping Shoppers.
Must have been those pesky Lutherans protesting the commercialization of Christmas?
Update II: Stockholm News has a complete report. Determined to be sudden Jihad Syndrome. They are reporting it as a Suicide Bombing.
Police bomb technicians examined the dead man's bag by using a bomb robot. Radiographs show that it contained a large quantity of nails and an unknown substance which is suspected to be explosives.What you mean I was wrong about the Lutherans?
At least four ambulances were sent to the scene. Two people were taken to hospital with minor injuries, they were in the vicinity of the explosions.
The adjacent streets have been cordoned off.
According to witnesses, the man shouted something in Arabic before the bomb detonated.
The Swedish news agency TT reports that both them and the Swedish Security Service received a video-film only ten minutes before the explosions.
In the film a man addresses to "Sweden and the Swedish people". He,among else, refers to the Swedish silence on artist Lars Vilks paintings of Mohammed, the Swedish soldiers in Afghanistan, saying that "now shall your children, daughters and sisters die as our brothers and sisters and children are dying."
And also credit Charles for being ahead of me.
I wonder where this splodey dope would have gotten an idea like this in Sweden?
“Now, your children — daughters and sisters — will die like our brothers and sisters and children die,” it continued. “Our actions will speak for themselves. As long as you do not end your war against Islam and the insult against the prophet and your stupid support for that pig VilksIf anyone finds a complete transcript please email Howie.
The recorded message sent to Swedish news organizations demanded that Muslims in Sweden “stop sucking up and degrading yourselves,” and broadened the appeal to “all mujahedeen,” or holy warriors, in Europe. “Now it’s time to attack,” it said. “Do not wait any longer. Come forth with whatever you have, even if it is a knife, and I know that you can bring more than knives. Fear no one. Do not be afraid of jail. Do not fear death.”
I was born in Baghdad, Iraq. We moved to Sweden in 1992. I moved to UK 2001 to study. I have Bacholar degree in physical therapy. Iam married sence 2004 and have 2 girls. One is 3.6 and the second is 1.6 years old. I want to get married again, and would like to have a BIG family. My wife agreed to...
Looks pretty moderate right. Well check out his icon for his Facebook account.
Whose flag is that anyway, Oh yeah al-Qaeda and the online Jihadis just love that one.
I guess if you can't seem the get that second wife, sploding yourself is a good way to impress the ladies.
Update V by SH: Partial transcript of presumed bombers audio sent via EXPRESSEN[goolish translate
Following is a transcript of the audio file emailed to Swedish news agency TT that was sent at 16:40 on Saturday. Please note that some of them also in the Swedish section was read in Arabic. There are also audio files in English or Arabic.There is also a FB page in his honor:
Note that there is still no confirmation that the voice on the audio file can be linked to explosions in Stockholm.
"In Arabic: The merciful God's name. Prayer and peace to the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.
In God, the merciful Father Name:
In Swedish: Very short and wide to Sweden and Swedish people. Thanks to Lars Vilks and his paintings of the Prophet Muhammad (in Arabic), peace be upon him (in Swedish) and your soldiers in Afghanistan and your silence on all this so will your children, daughters, brothers and sisters die like that our brothers and sisters and children die.
Now the Islamic State had complied with what they have promised you. We are now here in Europe and in Sweden, we are a reality, not imaginary, more, I would not say on this.[Read the rest]
Image of sploded dope, who celebrated the eve of his 29th birthday with a bang![below fold]
Update VI by SH: Splodey Allahu Adakbar dope studied at a British University:
# Taimour al-Abdaly graduated from Bedfordshire in 2004Gives a new meaning to those dudes who advertise businesses
# He worked as a sandwich-boardad man on street he attacked[Ah, that's the reason for the 'board/sign' next to his dead body..ed..(2nd image added)]
A suicide bomber who died in a terrorist bomb attack which rocked Stockholm city centre, is believed to be a graduate from a British university.[ More]
Update VI: Welcome Hot Air readers.
While you are here check out the cool martyrdom headshot from the Daily Mail. Its a great, "Hi Mom, I'm dead!" postcard for the holidays. Shame that Baby Jesus seems to have won this one. He looks so peaceful.
It will be all the rage on the al-Qaeda martyrdom tape. They'll never consider that he looks peaceful because he's effing dead.
Update VII: Expect a dynamite update when our leader Dr. Rusty Shackleford gets back, quote.
The guy is connected.As in connected to the online Jihad.
Also thanks to Brad Thor for sharing us on Facebook. Wished I could see it ;)
Update VIII by SH: Just a little funny quote
The fact that the Stockholm attack failed suggests al-Qaida is not in a position to train its supporters properly, British sources said.I feel alQaeda, if connected, trained them very well. Al Qaeda, you devils you...trickin the Ummah
Also, the splodey dope's property is still being searched in Bedfordshire, while the Guardian[link above] found a neighbor who lives by. Same ole, same ole
Metropolitan police officers last night searched a property in Bedfordshire under the Terrorism Act 2000, the force said. It was reported last night that his family still lived in Luton and that neighbours last saw him two and a half weeks ago.Shocked!!! srzly.
Tahir Hussain, 33, a taxi driver who lives nearby, told the Daily Telegraph: "I used to see him around often. He didn't say much but seemed nice. I used to see him walking with his kids.
"I was shocked when I heard what happened because I never thought he could do such a thing."
'Guest' linked to a article regarding Lions of Luton. Radical cleric Hook Hamza connection? Well at least...a bit of a push...
ARE YOU SURE?
HERE IT IS and actually not too bad.

Non-violent Imam Treats His Wife....
....according to Sharia Law, of course.
Adam is alleged to have shouted a verse from the Koran at his wife as he beat her.
The line said: 'Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them.
'As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.'
I wonder if he'll be preaching non-violence when cellmate Hans visits in the middle of the night. Religion of peace!
Thanks to Norseman.

Islamist voter fraud in UK referendum to create Islamic Emirate of Londonistan?
An interesting side note to yesterday's UK elections is a referendum in London's Tower Hamlets project to be governed directly by its own mayor. But in late February, Labor MP and Environment Minister Jim Fitzpatrick charged that the Labor Party in Tower Hamlets had been infiltrated and taken over by the Islamic Forum of Europe, a radical group that advocates violent jihad and sharia law.
Now Andrew Gilligan reports in today's Telegraph about widespread voter fraud in Tower Hamlets that very well may allow the Islamic Forum of Europe to create their own Islamic emirate in the heart of London:
At the European elections, less than a year ago, the electoral roll of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets contained 148,970 names. By January this year, it had shot up to 160,278. And in the past month alone, a further 5,000 new names have mysteriously appeared on the voting lists.
There are only two possibilities here. Either Tower Hamlets is growing twice as fast as the fastest-growing city in China, or it is the target of massive and systematic electoral fraud. We can have a guess at the answer from the fact that some three-bedroom flats in the borough appear to have 12 adults on the roll. The real occupants, when approached on the doorstep, have never heard of their 10 new flatmates.
Elections in Tower Hamlets have always been a scandal. In 2006, an entire tower block had its postal votes stolen. But this time it's more serious. In a close election, Tower Hamlets – and other places like it – could help tip the balance of power. And there are now rather too many other places like it, with dozens of police inquiries under way in inner-city seats across the country. At the time of writing, I don't know how Britain has voted. But under some scenarios, the real and frightening possibility is that this election was decided by fraud.
There are local factors, too. As the Telegraph has documented, the Islamic Forum of Europe, a radical Islamist group based at the hardline East London Mosque, has been accused of secretly infiltrating the Tower Hamlets Labour Party – and is seeking to consolidate its control by having the borough run by a directly elected mayor. A referendum on the mayoral proposal was also held yesterday.
I have no evidence that the IFE is behind the fraud in Tower Hamlets. But its favoured candidates have done remarkably well lately. At the last London mayoral election, Ken Livingstone, for whom leading members of the IFE vigorously campaigned, saw his share of the vote in one ward rise from 29.6 per cent to a rather improbable 68.1 per cent.
This is what Muslim Brotherhood ideologue Yusuf Al-Qaradawi has advocated in the creation of self-governed "Muslim ghettos" to infiltrate and destroy the West from within.

"That's right, the women are smarter..."
“If we give them a minaret, they’ll have us all wearing burqas,” said Julia Werner, a local housewife. “Before you know it, we’ll have sharia law and women being stoned to death in our streets. We won’t be Swiss any more.”
Tatiana, a teacher who had previously voted for the left, was quoted in a newspaper as saying she would vote for the minaret ban as she could “no longer bear being mistreated and terrorised by boys who believe women are worthless”.
Socialist politicians have been furious to see icons of the left joining what is regarded as an anti-immigrant campaign by the populist Swiss People’s party, the biggest group in parliament.
One of them, Julia Onken, warned that failure to ban minarets would be “a signal of the state’s acceptance of the oppression of women”. She has sent out 4,000 emails attacking Muslims who condone forced marriage, honour killings and beating women.

57% of Swiss voters demonstrate at least partial immunity to the European Malaise
The remaining 43% will be readily identified by the drool frozen in gobs at the corners of their mouths as they stare longingly at window displays of Odeur de Chevre™ brand articles de toilette.
Right wing politician Ulrich Schluer from the Swiss People's Party told the Swiss website swissinfo.ch that minarets symbolize a political-religious claim to power.
“We do not forbid Islam -- we forbid the political symbol of Islamization, and this is the minaret,” Schluer said. “The minaret has nothing to do with religion; the minaret is a symbol of political victory [of Islam]. The first thing the Turks did when they conquered Constinople -- they installed a minaret on the top of the most important church.”
Amnesty International has warned that the ban would violate Switzerland's obligations to freedom of religious expression.
Agencies report that partial results from the poll indicate that the German-speaking canton of Lucerne accepted the ban. But the French-speaking cantons of Geneva and Vaud have reportedly voted against.
