BREAKING EUROPE Merkel and her Migrants. What comes Next?
Published on Jan 22, 2017
ONE OF THE BEST VIDEOS EXPLAINING THE SO CALLED IMMIGRANT CRISIS. This video was posted on YouTube by Black Pigeon Speaks I suggest you look at his YouTube channel.. As Solomon and Maqdisi point out, the Hijra is a comprehensive and direct political attempt to undermine the culture and values of the host country and replace them with Islam and shari'ah. It is an insidious migration seeking transformation of the culture, behaviors, customs, rules and laws of a host society to spread Islam and establish an Islamic state. The stages of the Hijra are very much evident in varying degrees in all Western societies today. Ironically, our open democratic societies with constitutionally mandated freedoms of speech, religion and assembly have facilitated this march toward the very demise of our way of life.
"Modern Day Trojan Horse" should be required reading for all citizens of Western democracies who urgently need to understand the Hijra and the threat it represents. The book sounds the alarm for the cautious evaluation of what may appear to be innocent religious practice in our midst but has sinister motives to transform our societies forever. We see staggering numbers of immigrants from Muslim countries in Europe, the Americas and now in Australia; too often not to integrate and become Australians, but to form segregated communities based on religious apartheid and demand room and respect in the wider community for Islamic laws, Islamic finances, food and divisive customs. Do our politicians and community leaders understand that jihad, terror and military conquest are merely the other side of the same coin?

Must See! Crazy European Immigration Crisis
Published on Dec 1, 2015
Here in the United States this crisis is hushed and played down. But over in Europe it is very real, and violent. Where to get news from, what to believe? It is up to everyone one of us to determine the facts for ourselves. Because one thing is for sure we are not being told the truth about this situation from our media or government.
The perils facing migrants from Africa and the Middle East trying to get to Europe across the Mediterranean have been underscored. With economic decay, war, persecution and unemployment gripping at least a dozen countries on Europe’s southern rim, the surge of migration north has overwhelmed authorities in Europe, which has struggled to articulate a single coherent policy and, say critics, played into the hands of unscrupulous people traffickers. It is not necessarily an exaggeration to characterise the scale of would-be migrants arriving illegally in Europe as a permanent crisis but even within this context 2015 is looking like a particularly difficult year.
Thousands were saved last year by Italy’s search and rescue operation, Mare Nostrum, but that unit was stood down last autumn, replaced by a European operation with a much flimsier mandate.
The volume of migrants is, as ever, a result of many different factors. Many thousands arrive every year from sub-Saharan Africa, notably Eritrea and Somalia, fleeing economic chaos, war and human rights abuses. More recently the numbers have been swollen by ever more people escaping conflict and civil breakdown in Libya and Syria. More than 120,000 Syrians have arrived in Europe since 2011, according to the UN refugee agency, the UNHCR. This is a large number, but nonetheless a small proportion of the 3 million or so Syrians who have fled abroad, mostly to neighbouring Jordan and Turkey.
I'm not showing this to scare you but to inform you.
I know I was shocked by this video, I'm curious what you all think. If you get a sec leave a comment below, letting me know how you see this.
Update- Due to the overwhelming overflow of comments, I can no longer respond to comments. I just wanted to share this with as many people as possible, hoping to show whats not been shown but what should be! We all live in the world together and have a right to know what is happening. I don't hope to show you something horrible without offering you hope in it all. That hope is found in no other than Jesus Christ. The son of the Living God. Maker and creator of all that we see. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes on him will not perish but have everlasting life. Jesus came down from God in the form of a man. Lived a perfect sinless life. And was sacrificed for our sins. The Bible says if we confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in our heart that God raised him from the grave, you will be saved. The scriptures also say, whoever believes on him shall not be ashamed and whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. If you haven't yet accepted Jesus as your savior, it's not too late you can do it today! I'd be happy to help or offer any advice.

A specter is haunting Europe: the specter of the Caliphate
By Alexander Maistrovoy
June 14, 2017
At a Party meeting, the Party leader addresses the audience:
“All of you will be hanged tomorrow. Do you have questions?”
Silence.
The Party leader:
“I will repeat the question. Tomorrow you all will be hanged. Does anybody want to say anything?”
A timid voice is heard from the audience:
“Shall we bring our own rope and soap or they will provide it to us?”
This was a Soviet anecdote of the 70s.
The world of Quisling’s followers, barbarian colonizers, and a submissive, or at best frightened, murmuring herd — this is the Western Europe of the 21st century
In 1975, he was 40 years old, and he was well-known already: his performances were popular; he was a member of the editorial board of a famous literary magazine. Any path was open before him, but he chose a different way.
After putting down the Prague Spring, he challenged the authorities, having written an open and furious letter addressed to the President of Czechoslovakia, which was occupied by the Soviet troops. He was arrested, accused of attacking a civil servant and put into prison. Later on he was released, accused of an attempt to overthrow the communist regime, imprisoned for four years and five months, released again and imprisoned again in 1989.
He spent years in prison and turned into an unbreakable leader of his people – a future president of the Czech Republic. His name is Vaclav Havel. Like Thomas Masaryk, the founder of the Czech Republic, he was an embodiment of the best qualities of a statesman: mind, fortitude, strength and decency.
The West presents a gloomy picture of impending darkness and tyranny, the likes of haven’t been known to the civilized world for centuries. This is the world in which an aggressive, patriarchal and primitive religion has taken root in the very heart of the continent; in which bearers of dark prejudices, intolerance and barbarism, who came from the far ends of Asia and Africa, murder, rape, mock and disparage those who trustfully and carelessly opened their doors to them. This is the world in which the elite have turned into Quisling’s followers, the guides of colonization, and the governments of the nations have chosen (more or less eagerly) the role of Vichy.
However, we notice a striking phenomenon: masses of people doomed to inevitable suffering keep silent or, at best, passively and anonymously express their disagreement during elections — although they have almost no chance to win, since the whole state system is aimed at brainwashing, and the people of Western Europe and Canada are deprived of individualism and self-reliance, like the people of America. Undoubtedly, there are those who dared to raise their voice against the invading despotism, but there are few of them, surprisingly very few for a society that is still relatively open. This applies to both intellectuals and ordinary people.
I am not talking about the so called “useful idiots” — sectarians blinded by ideological clichés and ready to use the corpses of their compatriots to pave their path to the Pastures of Hell. I am not talking about those who receive grants and privileges — they have chosen this cynical and dirty role. I am talking about the thousands of ordinary professors, teachers, lawyers, writers, actors, filmmakers, journalists. I am talking about priests and rabbis, human rights activists, feminists, activists of the LGBT community — those who will be the first victims of the forthcoming theocracy. They will not be granted an easy death.
What makes those whose relatives, friends and neighbors are blown up, raped, humiliated and held in terror keep silent? Haven’t they already lost a sense of security and calm in their own homes, streets and cities? We see sentimental scenes with weeping people, toys, candles and wreaths at places of massacre, where mass demonstrations, rallies of protest and pickets are needed instead. We see exalted the opponents of Marine Le Pen and Geert Wilders, and the Women’s Marches, but we do not see any opponents of politically correct tyranny. Why do people submit their throats to murderers, being obedient like sheep?
What is this — self-censorship, conformism, the hope that they will avoid the fate of being a victim? They won’t escape this. After the terrorist attack in Manchester, the pop star Katy Perry, the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and a member of the French Senate for Nice, Nathalie Goulet, expressed the opinion of the Western elites by saying that Europeans should get used to terrorist attacks. And they will make them get used to them. Finally, they will get used to the fate of the so-called “dhimmis” – semi-slaves, human cattle, whose lives will be taken by servants of the bloodthirsty cult.
Do they fear turning into racists, fascists, Islamophobes? Do the fear losing jobs, opportunities for career growth, invitations to conferences on human rights and inter-confessional dialogue? Do they fear paying a fine for defamation?
I started this article with Vaclav Havel’s story not at random. For decades, the world has witnessed Eastern European people desperately struggling for their rights and dignity against tyranny. The Hungarian Revolution of 1956, the Prague Spring, the Polish Solidarity movement, the Romanian revolution against Ceaușescu’s dictatorship, the courage of the Lithuanians who escaped the “bear embrace” of the Soviet empire in January 1991 at the cost of dozens of lives – crowds of people led by the intellectual class walked out to the streets and were confronted not by courts or comments on Facebook and anonymous threats on Twitter, but by bullets, tanks and the State Security. They had neither lawyers nor rights. They knew that they could be put into prison for years, like Havel, or even die (Havel’s friend philosopher Jan Patočka died during an interrogation). Nevertheless, Eastern Europeans became stronger owing to this experience, ready to defend Democracy and their freedom. They gained immunity against universalistic utopias and put forward courageous and determined leaders.
There was a powerful dissident movement in the very citadel of Soviet tyranny. Many of these people disappeared in prisons, camps and psychiatric hospitals. They shared prison cells with criminals, who were encouraged to bully them and commit sexual violence (carte blanche) against them. Most of the Soviet dissidents were represented by scientists 
and writers headed by the academic Andrey Sakharov – they were the color of the nation. During the Soviet Coup in August 1991, armored troop carriers in Moscow crushed three people, but the restoration of the Soviet regime was prevented.
In our time, Ukrainians have overthrown their corrupt ruler, and in Moscow, people go out to protests against autocracy. In Israel, after the vicious Oslo agreements and the subsequent murderous mass terrorist attacks, tens of thousands of people repeatedly took to the streets demanding a stop to inhuman political experiments on the living body of the society. People blocked the roads and organized marches to the Prime Minister’s residence. About eight years ago, the mass outbreak forced the Israeli government, despite enraged opposition from left organizations and the media, to build a fence on the border with Egypt to protect the country against hordes of African migrants.
It is symbolic that Pegida, which did not find followers in the rest of Western Europe, appeared on the territory of the former German Democratic Republic.
Democracy is not just voting once in every four years. First of all, this is a civic activity, and requires courage — it is not the act of a weeping child in a kindergarten. A primary task of a democratic state is the protection of its people. If a state and elites do not comply with the social contract, and what is even worse, sacrifice their own people, culturally and physically, in the name of a dubious ideology, utopian conception and personal interests, then the people have their right to demand the revision of that social contract. They have a full right not to allow totalitarian structures (and the Western elite has implanted a sophisticated cultural totalitarianism) to turn them into guinea pigs of social engineering.
In 1984, in the essay called “Politics and Conscience,” Havel wrote: “I advocate an anti-political policy, that is, a policy considered to be not a method of power and manipulation, not a cybernetic system for managing human beings and not a pragmatic person’s skill, but one of the ways to seek and achieve a meaningful life, protect such life and serve it. I advocate a policy considered to be practical ethics, service to the truth, people’s care of their fellow human beings, measurable by human standards.”
The Western elites have created a system of manipulating human beings, having forgotten that they are dealing with real people, their lives and feelings.
Havel called Communist regimes Absurdistan (The Land of the Absurd). Today Absurdistan is the West, and most of all Western Europe, where freedom is destroyed under the guise of its protection, where the right of migrants to murder and rape is above the right of law-abiding citizens to live a normal and safe life, and where democratic institutions are used to implant the worst possible kind of theocracy.
Nowadays, people still have an opportunity to prevent despotism. However, censorship is getting stricter, penalties are increasing, colonization is spreading rapidly like cancer cells, and the window of possibilities is narrowing. A specter is haunting Europe: the specter of the Caliphate.

9 questions about the ISIS Caliphate you were too embarrassed to ask
Updated by Max Fisher max@vox.com 
Aug 7, 2014
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who declared himself the new caliph Al-Furqan Media/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images
On July 4, a 42-year-old Iraqi jihadist leader who fights under the name Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi appeared in a mosque in the city of Mosul, which his group ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) had seized weeks earlier as part of its drive capturing swathes of Iraq and Syria. Al-Baghdadi, dressed in long black robes and wearing a conspicuous luxury watch, delivered a sermon announcing that he would henceforth be known as Caliph Ibrahim, emir of the faithful in the Islamic state.
ISIS areas of control (The Economist)
A week earlier, ISIS had declared itself to be a sovereign state. Now, according to the self-crowned Caliph Ibrahim, it is much more: that stretch of terrorist-run territory in Syria and Iraq is the rebirth of the long-expired Caliphate. This new caliphate is doing terrible things to the people unlucky enough to be under its reign. They have particularly targeted Christians and and ethno-religious minority known as the Yazidi, tens of thousands of whom ISIS fighters have trapped on a mountain in northern Iraq. The Yazidi have to choose between staying on the mountain and starving or descending and being killed by ISIS, a plight so dire that the US may launch air strikes against the militants.
You may find yourself wondering: what is a caliphate, anyway? Why is the old one such a big deal? What does this new caliphate have to do with the original? And what is it trying to accomplish? Here, then, are the most basic answers to your most basic questions.
1) What is a caliphate?
A caliphate is a an Islamic state — and then some. In theory, a caliphate is more than just a country that happens to be officially Muslim; it is supposed to encompass every Muslim on earth. The last time that sort of caliphate existed was many centuries ago. But the word caliphate still evokes the idea of a glorious and unified Islamic civilization, which is what the first caliphates were.
CALIPHATE COMES FROM THE WORD CALIPH, WHICH MEANS SUCCESSOR, AS IN SUCCESSOR TO MOHAMMED
To understand what caliphate actually means and where the name comes from, you have to go back to the 620s A.D., in the western part of what is today Saudi Arabia, when the Prophet Mohammed founded Islam and led its first followers. The idea of a unified community of all believers is important in Islam, so Mohammed and his followers organized a self-governing political system that included all Muslims — at the time, not so many people. In other words, Islam was founded as a religion and a state. In the last ten years of his life, Mohammed led military campaigns in present-day Saudi Arabia to unite disparate Arabian tribes, which joined in his state-that-was-also-a-religion.
Just to give you a sense of place, here's Mohammed's early Islamic community, as of 624 AD, marked in green. You'll notice that it was pretty tiny, and in what was at the time a relatively remote part of the world. You'll also notice that it existed at a time when Europe and Asia were dominated by huge land empires:
Historical Atlas of the Mediterranean
But Mohammed's Islamic community didn't become a caliphate until he died in 632 AD. That's when one of his followers took over leadership: a man named Abu Bakr (the present-day Iraqi jihadist leader borrowed this name, calling himself Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi). Within the community he was referred to as the khalifah, which is Arabic for successor, as in the successor to Mohammed. Khalifah can also mean representative, in this case of both Mohammed and God. So when the khalifah (simplified as caliph) Abu Bakr took over Mohammed's Islamic mini-state, that mini-state was called the caliphate.
2) So how did that first caliphate become a big important empire?
By one of the most successful and rapid military expansions in history. The original caliphate existed from 632 AD, when Mohammed died and the first caliph Abu Bakr took over, until 661 when it fell into civil war (that civil war also led to the permanent divide between Sunni and Shia Islam). It was ruled by four successive caliphs and it grew over a remarkably short time to be one of the largest empire in the world.
Those first four caliphs, or leaders of the Islamic community-that-was-also-a-state: were really good military commanders. At the same time, the two major empires nearby, the Byzantine Empire (what was left of the eastern Roman Empire) and the Persian Empire, were both growing weak, and were militarily exhausted from fighting one another.
Under Mohammed, the Islamic community challenged or absorbed the Arabian peninsula's disparate tribes until it controlled most of the land in the Middle East not already controlled by either the Persian or Byzantine Empires. Under the caliphs, it invaded and took lots of land from the Byzantines and Persians. Here, you can watch the Caliphate expand from its inception until the height of the first caliphate, in 655 AD:
Mohammad Adil
That first caliphate wasn't just a big military empire — it was a community that encompassed all Muslims and that was practically synonymous with the Islamic faith. The caliphate spread Islam as it went, so you're seeing the growth of Islam from a small corner of the Arabian peninsula to encompass virtually all of what we today consider the Middle East, parts of Central Asia, even the southern tip of Spain. The Caliphate also spread the Arabic language, which before 632 was limited to present-day Saudi Arabia, and is now a primary language thousands of miles away in present-day Morocco. These conquests are why almost all of the Middle East and North Africa today speaks Arabic and often considers itself ethnically Arab.
3) But there were more caliphates, right? Even bigger ones?
Yes, that's right. That first caliphate, based on Mohammed's original community, evolved into a second and third caliphates over the next centuries. The second caliphate begin in 661, after the first Muslim civil war, and lasted until 750 AD. It was the largest caliphate and the most successful, making it the height of the Islamic state. Its capital was in Damascus, which is today the capital of Syria — this is part of why today's caliphate-nostalgists love the idea of a reborn caliphate based in Syria.
The second caliphate (known as the Umayyad Caliphate) expanded way into Central Asia and into Spain:
Gabagool
That was followed by the third caliphate, the Abbasid Caliphate, which lost Spain and part of North Africa but still ruled a pretty huge area from 750 to 1258. That was the last real caliphate, in that it could plausibly claim to include a unified community of Muslims.
The present-day Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in declaring himself a caliph and his terrorist mini-state a caliphate, is communicating that he believes he is fighting on behalf of all Muslims worldwide (he does not count Shia Muslims in this, only Sunnis) and that he is the representative of God on earth. He is also sort of suggesting a desire to continue ISIS's advance until he has conquered all Muslim-majority lands, which is an aspiration that's hinted at frequently in jihadist maps of a unified Islamic empire:
ISIS
4) Why did the caliphates end?
The Ottoman Empire claimed to be the last caliphate, and it lasted right up until 1914. So technically there was a caliphate until just a century ago.
But when people talk about "the caliphates" what they typically mean are the big imperial states that continued Mohammed's original vision of a unified political community of all Muslims, centered around the ethnic Arabs who originally founded it.
That ended, very roughly, around the year 1000 for two reasons. First, the Abbasid Caliphate, which really was the continuation of Mohammed's original community-state, fractured in a few places. Its territory in present-day Spain and Portugal broke off into the Cordoba Caliphate, for example, and you can't really have multiple caliphates at the same time.

The second reason is that Islam was spreading naturally beyond the borders of the caliphates, in sub-Saharan Africa and in southeast Asia and present-day India, so the caliphate no longer included even close to all Muslims. The Ottoman Empire claimed to be a caliphate up until World War One, and did control holy sites in Mecca and Jerusalem, but functionally operated as just an empire that happened to be Islamic.
The dream of a caliphate that represents a unified community of all Muslims was easy enough to see through in the seventh century, when that community was pretty small and geographically clustered, but Islam has just spread too widely and too quickly for that dream to last. The last "real" caliphate, the Abbasids, eventually splintered under its own weight, with various parts of the empire breaking apart, and finally succumbed to rising Persian and Turkish powers.
5) What does a caliph do, exactly?
Originally, the caliph was the person who took over Mohammed's two earthly responsibilities: (1) rule over the unified Islamic state and (2) responsibility for all Muslims. Over the next seven hundred years, Mohammed's memory obviously faded, but those remained the two defining responsibilities: rule over a unified Islamic state and bear responsibility for the community of all Muslims, or the ummah.
Over the caliphate's growth and centuries of history, being the caliph started to be more about empire-running and less about religion. But, at least symbolically, the caliph was supposed to be both the head of state and the top divine representative on earth, sort of like a Roman emperor and a pope at the same time. When the Abbasid Caliphate broke apart and dissolved in the 1100s and 1200s, that role ended.
The title of caliph did stick around until the early 1900s, but it mostly served as just a religious title that certain heads of state would adopt if they also happened to rule over enough Muslim holy sites. It was held by Turks for a long time, who used it to claim responsibility for the global Muslim community but in execution mostly just adopted it as a tool to bolster his own legitimacy.
The last caliph was in 1924, when the office was abolished by then-Turkish leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, a secular nationalist who wanted to reduce the role of religion in the state.
6) Can we take a caliphate-themed music break?
A poetry break would probably be more appropriate, given the rich tradition of poetry in the early caliphates, but yes let's do music. There's a traditional form called Anasheed, Islamic music that is typically sung a cappella (sort of like medieval Christian chant) but sometimes includes light percussion. This is to adhere to conservative interpretations of Islam that prohibit musical instruments. It's an old form and can be quite beautiful; here's one:
The form also has lots of lighter incarnations. But there is also a pretty significant, modern strain of jihadist Anasheed, which the jihadist movements use to communicate the idea that they represent the old piety and glory of the early Islamic empires. If you browse through Anasheed music videos on YouTube (what can I say, I have a weird job), you'll see lots of Arabic chants set to images of bearded jihadists wielding assault rifles and black flags; the lyrics are typically about God and righteousness and so forth. Here's one produced just this week by ISIS that is specifically about reestablishing the caliphate:
(sorry, not available)
To be clear, not all Anasheed are jihadist. And most of the ancient, caliphate-era poetry was about the same stuff everyone writes poetry about: love, family, nature, and so on. But the point is that modern jihadists have co-opted to Anasheed form to advance their agenda and ideology, just as they have attempted to lay claim to the mantle of the original caliphates.
7) Why are jihadists so obsessed with this stuff?
Jihadists see the caliphates as the height of Islam's glory, as the banner of a sort of Islamic nationalism. It's more than that, though: many modern-day jihadists and Islamists also see the caliphates as the answer to the last two centuries of subjugation and humiliation at the hands of Western powers.
Framing your jihadist movement as the rebirth or continuation of the caliphates is a way of asserting the idea that all Muslims should be joined in one state, that they should be ruled by Islam rather than by a secular system, and maybe most important of all that the Islamic world by religious right should be much stronger than the Western powers that have long invaded it.
The jihadists also assume that, because the caliphates existed a long time ago and were politically organized around Islam, that they must have therefore been ultra-conservative theocracies.
8) The caliphate was in fact a place of ultra-conservative Islam and anti-modern intolerance, right?
Wrong! That's what jihadists, like today's ISIS leaders, want it to be, because they themselves wish to run an oppressive, intolerant, anti-modern, ultra-conservative state. But this is a fantasy they've constructed to justify their much more modern ideas about ultra-conservatism and their romanticizing an era that went very differently than they imagine.
Here is the journalist Khaled Diab, debunked this myth in the New York Times recently:
The Abbasid caliphate was centuries ahead of Mr. Baghdadi's backward-looking cohorts. Abbasid society during its heyday thrived on multiculturalism, science, innovation, learning and culture - in sharp contrast to ISIS' violent puritanism. The irreverent court poet of the legendary Caliph Harun al-Rashid (circa 763-809), Abu Nuwas, not only penned odes to wine, but also wrote erotic gay verse that would make a modern imam blush.Centered on the Bayt al-Hikma, Baghdad's "House of Wisdom," the Abbasid caliphate produced notable advances in the sciences and mathematics. The modern scientific method itself was invented in Baghdad by Ibn al-Haytham, who has been called "the first true scientist."
And so on. You don't get to be one of the largest land empires in history, as the early caliphates were, by rejecting science and making your biggest priorities persecuting women and minorities; you do it by emphasizing science and the arts and pluralism. But that's not what jihadists want to hear.
9) Why are jihadists basing their 'new' caliphate on this fictional conception of the original?
This gets to a sort of ideological crisis that politics in the Arab Middle East have been struggling with for nearly a century: how to reconcile their region's long history of greatness, particularly during the time of the caliphates, with its more recent history of subjugation by Western powers? How to answer that subjugation, and how to reclaim past greatness?
JIHADISTS GROUPS ARE STRUGGLING WITH AN OLD QUESTION: HOW TO RECLAIM THE LOST DIGNITY AND GLORY?
There have been many different ideological strains and reactions to this, but one of the two most consequential has been Arab secular nationalism, which says that ethnic Arabs should unite, politically or metaphorically, and should challenge the Western imperialists by learning from their secularism and technological progress. Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad is a secular Arab nationalist; so was Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak.
The second of those two has been Islamism, which says that Muslims should unite, reject Western ideas, and organize society around conservative interpretations of Islam and an Islamic identity, as a way of reviving and reclaiming the old caliphates. Jihadists are an extremist sub-set of Islamists, hence the obsession with the caliphate, which for them is both a symbol of paradise lost and the rightfully ordained state of the world. This is part of why Islamists and jihadists hate and fight against Arab secular nationalists as much or more than they hate and fight against the West.

The fact that the present-day, terrorist-run "caliphate" in Iraq and Syria has so little in common with the original caliphates is beside the point. They're fighting for a mythical memory they've constructed. Unfortunately for Iraqis and Syrians coming under ISIS's rule, enough people believe in that myth to fight and kill for it.
