Jihadistdåd stoppas i Tyskland

Några dagar efter det islamistiska terrordådet på spårvagnen i Utrecht stoppar tyska polisen ett nytt dåd i Frankfurt am Main.
Enligt senaste uppgifter är hittills elva salafister gripna.
Fler gripanden väntas....

Stor razzia i Tyskland – elva gripna för planerat terrordåd


I en omfattande razzia greps på fredagen elva personer misstänkta för att ha planerat terrordåd i Tyskland. Enligt myndigheterna handlade det om en planlagd attack med islamistiska motiv.
Ett flertal lägenheter i Rhein-Mainområdet  i centrala Tyskland genomsöktes av 200 poliser och specialenheter från olika håll i landet. Man grep elva personer i åldrarna 20 till 42 år som misstänks för att ha planerat ett terrordåd mot icke-troende muslimer. Huvudmisstänkta är en 21-årig man och två 31-åriga bröder som ska tillhöra en salafistgruppering, enligt den tyska nyhetsbyrån Dpa.

Fordon och vapen

Enligt åklagaren misstänks männen ha hyrt ett fordon och köpt vapen för en terrorattack. En större summa pengar ska ha samlats in för att finansiera dådet. 20.000 euro, drygt 200.000 kronor, i kontanter hittades vid razzian. Man beslagtog även knivar, narkotika och servrar.

Ett konservativt och kristet SVAR på Tarrants terroristfantasier

Läs American Conservative´s svar på Tarrants manifest:

One of the biggest lies we hear whenever there is a mass terror attack, such as the one against New Zealand’s Muslims, is that the killing was “senseless.” It’s not without reason when ISIS does it, and it’s not without reason when people like Brenton Tarrant, the alleged NZ shooter, do it. The acts are evil, but not senseless; there is a rationale for what they do. To be clear: do NOT read me as saying Tarrant’s acts “made sense” in the general sense of the term; I’m speaking narrowly here, to mean that causation is at work. We need to know this so we can better combat things like this.

I read Tarrant’s manifesto, which is easy to find online, though I’m not going to link to it here. It’s a chilling document, for a couple of reasons. First, it’s grounded in both paranoid, racist grievance, and legitimate, realistic concerns. Second, as with ISIS videos and propaganda, the Internet distributes this stuff worldwide; we may be certain that Tarrant’s manifesto will strike many resonant chords with murder-minded fanatical racists like himself.

Though I don’t want to be part of spreading the manifesto, I do want to talk about a few parts of it, including parts you may not hear about in the media reporting. It’s important to talk about it. I will say here clearly that any reader who in any way attempts to justify this atrocity in New Zealand will NOT be posted. It was a despicable act, and if you pray, join me in praying for the souls of the murdered, and the families they left behind.
That said, some comments on the manifesto (you can read a general NYT report on it here). I read it in the same vein as I read the bloodthirsty Islamist fanatic Sayyid Qutb’s work: as something that we have to understand, because it articulates quite clearly what we’re up against — and that it’s not mere psychotic raving:
  1. Tarrant identifies himself as an “ethno-nationalist eco-fascist.” He says he was first a communist, then an anarchist, then a libertarian, and finally an eco-fascist. He’s 28. This is not a stable person.
  2. He despises conservatives for having conserved nothing. “Conservatism is corporatism in disguise, I want no part of it,” he writes. He adds, in all caps, “CONSERVATISM IS DEAD, THANK GOD.” He also despises France’s National Front, or whatever it’s called today. He calls them “milquetoast.” He praises the emergence of Trump as a sign of hope, but mocks Trump too. He says his idea leader is Oswald Mosley, the 20th century British fascist. Point is, the idea that Tarrant has any meaningful connection to the mainstream right is nonsense. The man is true radical.
  3. He says his aim is to accelerate history by frightening people and creating conflict. In particular, he wants to cause the US to move to take away people’s guns, and the Second Amendment supporters to respond to this violently.
  4. He wants the US to be balkanized into warring racial and regional factions, to destroy the ability of the US to project power around the world.
  5. He was radicalized by traveling in Europe and seeing immigrant crime, by seeing how many immigrants are present, and how the dispirited native populations are dying out. Overcome by emotion, he decided that he must do something about it.
  6. He said he chose the firearms for his attack specifically to incite an argument within the US, leading to the left attempting to confiscate guns, thereby starting a civil war.
  7. He says he is not a Nazi, but it’s hard to know what to make of his politics except to say that he is a national socialist obsessed with race, and hating capitalism. Plus, he loves the environment (“there is no traditionalism without environmentalism”).
  8. This was a brutal slap: “Above all, don’t be stale, placid, and boring. No one is inspired by Jeb Bush.”
  9. He praises the People’s Republic of China as his ideal state.
Here’s the most important line in the manifesto, one that the rest of us had better have a good answer to, because this assertion, in some form, is going to be with us for the rest of our lives:
What is “degeneration”? According to the manifesto, it consists of:
  1. The decline in native European populations, and native European stock in the US, in terms of numbers relative to non-Europeans within those societies.
  2. Politics and policies within European countries (that is, countries with ethnic European majorities, including the US and Canada) that disempower native Europeans.
  3. Widespread drug use.
  4. The loss of worker rights and stability under the reign of globalist capitalism.
  5. Environmental degradation.
  6. The collapse of Christianity (which he seems to value only as a force ethnically binding Europeans)
  7. Rampant hedonism
Here’s the chilling part: Everything Tarrant identifies as qualities of a disintegrating Western civilization is true. You may think that declining numbers of ethnic Europeans is a good thing, or something that has no particular moral meaning. But it really is happening. So are all the rest.
In no way do I see “radicalization,” at least not remotely in the violent terms conceived of by this mass murdering scum, as the answer to the disintegration he identifies. There is never, ever any justification for what he did. But if we are going to figure out how to stop these things, we have to take seriously the roots of it — this, in the same way we have to recognize the roots of Al-Qaeda and ISIS in specific experiences of Arab Muslims in late modernity. In fact, what Tarrant did, and what the Islamist terrorists do, intersect insofar as they are responses to the profound displacement of peoples and traditions in the modern world.

We are no doubt going to see more Tarrants emerge from the masses of angry young white men radicalized by the world they live in, and from living online. Again, the emergence of the same kind of men from the stresses of Arab Muslim society is entirely predictable.
The temptation many here will have in response to this obscene attack is to deny that it is based in any kind of reality. To do that, though, requires closing one’s eyes to actual conditions in the world. It would be like Russian aristocrats, circa 1900, telling themselves that the communist and anarchist revolutionaries committing acts of political murder have nothing to do with social, political, and economic changes roiling Europe and Russia of the era. That they are just inexplicable acts of savagery caused by the reading of revolutionary tracts.

Ian Bogost has an interesting piece explaining why it is impossible to say for sure what Tarrant really meant in this manifesto, and what is sarcasm (e.g., he baited the black American right-wing commenter Candace Owens in his manifesto). Bogost points out that social media, though, is made for creating chaos.
The world is undergoing unprecedented upheavals caused in part by technology, and certainly amplified by technology. This is only going to get more severe. We also live in a time in which masses of people have genuinely been uprooted from all sources of stability. The greatest task for political leaders, it seems to me, is to figure out how to keep society relatively stable during this long period of tumult. Encouraging identity politics and mass immigration, especially during a time of rising social instability, are suicidal for stable polities.

It seems clear to me that it in no way requires one to endorse Tarrant’s vile crimes to recognize that like splitting the atom, the unwinding of Western civilization is going to release some extreme energies. It already is. It is simply bizarre to think that all Europeans are going to acquiesce gently in the overwhelming of their nations by immigrants in this century. Most will, I think, but it is reasonable to expect that more and more violent fanatics like Tarrant and his hero Anders Breivik will arise. I believe we should take Tarrant seriously when he says that what radicalized him most of all was traveling to Europe and seeing with his own eyes the withering away of the continent’s ancient peoples. His way of responding to it is demonic — but what he is responding to is real. Douglas Murray’s great and sober book The Strange Death Of Europe is the thing to read on this topic.

One last point. In his manifesto, Tarrant says that it’s “laughable” to expect immigrants to the West to assimilate to a decadent, dying culture like ours. This brought to mind something I heard in New York last week. A man told me that two Romanian immigrant friends of his are thinking of returning to Romania to educate their children because they don’t want their kids infected with the decadence transmitted by the US education system. I don’t blame him at all. I think of Mark Bollobas’s decision to move to Hungary, the country from which his parents defected in the 1960s. Excerpt from something he wrote for this blog late last year:
Like many children of immigrants, I was raised to know that I have to work harder, and be better everywhere than those who were “local” to get ahead. And it’s all true. But I was also raised in a Hungarian household. While my parents made every effort to assimilate, I was raised in a household that took pride in being Hungarian. I didn’t support Hungary in sports or anything tribal like that, but I was proud when Hungary did well. I appreciated the poetry, the folk music, the heritage, the history, and so forth. And every time I went back to Budapest, I felt so so comfortable. No one asks “where are you from?” because although I don’t sound like I am from here (I have a British accent in Hungarian), I am from here, and people recognize that.
My decision to move back here to Hungary — I say that even though I wasn’t born here — has been reinforced by this fact: Hungary understands that holding on to its cultural identity is essential to its existence as a society we can understand.
Culture changes over time, of course, but it normally does it slowly as we creep towards a more civilized future.
England doesn’t feel more civilized — quite the opposite. It feels more feral. And the UK has just accepted its fate.
And so, Tarrant’s line — radicalization is the rational response to degeneration — played out in a different way in Mark Bollobas’s life. He moved to his ancestral homeland, where he would be poorer in material ways, but richer in many other ways. In my case, I propose the Benedict Option, and live in consciously countercultural ways, trying to be more and more like this in the face of this increasingly repulsive culture. For his part, Brenton Tarrant became a fanatical racist, fascist, mass murderer. Radicalism takes many forms. We have to resist the berserker form, but resisting it cannot mean pretending that the society and culture we are creating is good and healthy and worth defending. It’s not. I mean, for God’s sake, just look. I see Tarrant as a manifestation of the same diabolism.

It’s more radical to work to build the kind of culture that is life-giving, and to create new forms within which it can be lived out, than to give your life over to murdering innocent men, women, and children. This is true whether you are an ISIS terrorist, or a white nationalist terrorist. Those devils bring nothing but pain and death. They are no solution.

Finally, on the concept of degeneration, look at this old song by a French Canadian band. The song is called, of course, Dégénération. It’s about generational loss of spirit and culture:
Some people who live through this turn into bloodthirsty maniacs, like Brenton Tarrant. There is a better way. There has to be. It’s not going to come through the Democratic or Republican parties, and it’s not going to come through the established institutions of the church or academia. Nor can you buy it on The materials are there to make it ourselves, but it requires discipline and community. As I’ve said.

Raketattack mot Tel Aviv - och svaret...

Under natten mot fredagen avlossade Hamas två raketer mot
Tel Aviv och ytterligare ett dussin mot städerna i Negev.
De uppfångades av Iron Dome, men utlöste flyglarm i stora
delar av Israel.
Under fredagen slog IDF till mot ett av Hamas högkvarter
och en raketfabrik i Gaza.
Israeli warplanes on Friday struck some 100 Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip after terrorists in Gaza launched rockets on Tel Aviv and Israeli communities in the south.
By Associated Press and World Israel News Staff

After striking over 100 Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip on Friday, the Israeli army announced its targets had included a Gaza City building used to plan and command Hamas terror activities, an underground complex that served as Hamas’ main rocket-manufacturing site, and a center used for Hamas drone development.
There were no reports of casualties in Gaza.
The Israeli strikes were part of a retaliatory operation after terrorists in Gaza launched a late-night rocket attack on Tel Aviv, Israel’s densely populated commercial and cultural capital, marking a dramatic escalation in hostilities.
In total, Palestinian terrorists fired two rockets at Tel Aviv and nine rockets at Israeli communities along the Gaza border, with Israel’s Iron Dome intercepting seven of these rockets and the others falling in areas away from civilians. No Israelis were injured in the attacks.
It was the first time Tel Aviv had been targeted since a 2014 war between Israel and the Hamas terror group.

Hamas denied responsibility for the initial rocket attack, saying it went against Palestinian interests. But after a preliminary investigation, Israel said it had concluded that the militant group was behind the attack.
 Following the Israeli airstrike, several additional rounds of rocket fire were launched into Israel.
The fighting broke out as Egyptian mediators were in Gaza trying to convince the terror group to agree to an expanded cease-fire deal.
Israel and Hamas are bitter enemies and have fought three wars since the Islamic terror organization seized power n a bloody 2007 coup in Gaza from Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party. Smaller flare-ups have occurred sporadically since Israel and Hamas fought their last war, in 2014.
The sudden outburst of fighting comes at a sensitive time for both sides. Israel is holding national elections in less than a month. Netanyahu is locked in a tight fight for re-election and could face heavy criticism from his opponents if he is seen as ineffective against the terror threat.
Cabinet Minister Naftali Bennett, a rival of Netanyahu’s, called on the prime minister to convene a gathering of his Security Cabinet and demand the army “present a plan to defeat Hamas.”
Likewise, Hamas has come under rare public criticism in Gaza for the harsh conditions in the territory. An Israeli-Egyptian blockade, combined with sanctions by the rival Palestinian Authority and mismanagement by the Hamas government, have fueled an economic crisis in the territory.

 Residents have little desire for another war with Israel.
Earlier Thursday, Hamas police violently broke up a protest over the harsh living conditions.
 Israel holds Hamas responsible for all fire coming out of the territory. Financed by Iran, Hamas possesses a large arsenal of rockets and missiles capable of striking deep inside Israel.
Hamas denied responsibility for the attack on Tel Aviv, saying the rockets were launched when the group’s military wing was meeting with the Egyptian mediators.
In an unusual step that indicated Hamas was attempting to prevent further escalation, the Hamas Interior Ministry said the rocket fire went “against the national consensus” and promised to take action against the perpetrators.
But Israel’s military concluded that Hamas was responsible. In a statement early Friday, the army said “we can confirm” that Hamas carried out the rocket attack.

"Återvändande" jihadister begår grova brott

Sedan länge vet vi att jihadisterna som strömmade från Norden till Kalifatet
ISIS till största delen rekryterades från de kriminella shariagängen i bl a Göteborg, Malmö och Stockholms förorter.
Därför är det ju knappast förvånande att de som dessvärre överlevde sin jihad nu återupptagit sin kriminella bana i Sverige. Myndigheternas totala handfallenhet är tragisk. I Riksdagen pratar man käftarna ur led, men ingenting händer...naturligtvis.

Stiftelsen har dokumenterat en del av kriminaliteten. Artikeln ur Samtiden.

Någonting att tänka på när ni läser om makthavarnas krumbukter för att försvara sitt icke-agerande i frågan....


De IS-terrorister som sedan tidigare återvänt från striderna för ”kalifatet” går fria. I Sverige fortsätter de begå grova brott. Myndigheterna står handfallna.

Det visar granskning som stiftelsen och Expressen gjort av återvändarna från Syrien.

Bland de brott som begåtts av återvändare på plats i Sverige finns grov utpressning, grov misshandel och misshandel, ofredande, övergrepp i rättssak, penningtvättsbrott och ett stort antal grova bedrägerier.

Mordåtalad efter saxattack

En av dem, Mubashir Qadar, 31, högg en nedslagen man med saxen i ansiktet. Minst sju hugg träffar offret, enligt polisens utredning. När Qadar tidigare i år åtalades för det brutala mordet i Örebroförorten Vivalla var det lite mer än fem år efter att han återvände från krigets Syrien. Han nekar till mord men medger att han utdelat hugg med sax.

En annan 31-åring som också återvänt från IS deltog i samma misshandel utdelade flera sparkar mot huvudet på den liggande personen. Han står åtalad för grov misshandel.

Terrorforskaren Magnus Ranstorp vid Försvarshögskolan säger att det är anmärkningsvärt många av individerna som återvänt från Syrien som har begått allvarliga brott.

– Den här kategorin av personer har en lägre våldströskel än normalt. Samtidigt är många av dem fortfarande inne i den småkriminalitet som de höll på med redan innan de reste till Syrien, säger han till Expressen.

I granskningen framkommer att återvändare från Syrien har kontakter in i kriminella gängmiljöer. Och det finns exempel på att utredningar om brott knutna till kriminella gäng och nätverk leder in i miljöer med återvändare från Syrien.

Filmer med halshuggningar

Ett sådant exempel är Volvoarbetaren Al Amin Sultan från Göteborg som anslöt sig till en av de jihadistgrupper i Syrien som senare kom att uppgå i terrorsekten IS.

Sedan han återvänt till Sverige hävdar han att han bara kört ambulans. När polisen gjorde razzia i hans lägenhet på Hisingen i Göteborg fann man bevis som senare skulle få Al Amin Sultan dömd för grov utpressning i ett stort narkotikamål med förgreningar in i gängmiljön. Dessutom upptäcktes också ett USB-minne med bilder och filmer från Syrien.

En av filmerna visade hur två män fick halsarna avskurna i ett industriområde utanför Aleppo tidigt under sommaren 2015. Al Amin Sultan skulle senare pekas ut som en av flera göteborgare på plats och han avtjänar nu ett livstidsstraff på Kumla.

Kringflackande liv i Sverige

Flera av återvändarna från jihadistgrupper i Syrien som Doku och Expressen kartlagt har även återkommande fällts för mindre allvarliga brott, som olovliga körningar och snatterier. En del verkar i dag leva ett mer kringflackande liv utan adress.

Granskningen har inte varit enkel att göra. De som en gång under det islamiska kalifatets höjdpunkt gav sitt stöd till terrorsekten IS håller i dag en betydligt lägre profil. När reportrarna Magnus Sandelin ( och Daniel Olsson (Expressen) söker kontakt med en 27-åring, som även efter återkomsten till Sverige uttryckt sympatier för IS och tagits av polisen flera gånger med kniv på allmän plats, avslutar han direkt samtalet utan ett ord, när de presenterat sig. Han besvarar sedan inga samtal.
