Random Quotations – Islam – July 22nd, 2017

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

Six items in total…

“Minneapolis, and other cities, need to discard their policies of hiring people such as Mohamed Noor not because they’re competent, but because they’re of a desired ethnicity or religion. Mohamed Noor was only on the police force because he was a Somali Muslim, and thus buttressed Minneapolis’ ‘diversity.’ Placing ‘diversity’ and fears of ‘Islamophobia’ charges over proper standards for the police force is what killed Justine Damond.” – Robert Spencer, “Protestors shut down Minneapolis mayor’s press conference, demand her resignation” – Jihad Watch, July 22nd, 2017.

Adjusting To Change

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

Since I posted “Crossroads!” (1), I am well on the way to changing my routine and switching from working on my blog, to preparing to spend several hours a day working on my memoirs.

I find that I still want to be well-informed, and I spend the first hour or two each day keeping up with incoming emails and keeping track of personal emails and other issues. I also find that I have a lot of accumulated material that I would like to post, but I am not assembling anything new unless it is of particular interest – important events or developments worth an “original” post in their own right will receive prompt attention, but that will be it. We’ll see how that goes… (more…)

Elitist venom over free-speech lawyer’s remembrance service

Sunday, July 16th, 2017

“Memorial for lawyer draws controversy, July 13
I find it astonishing that such vitriol should be poured out over a remembrance service for a member of the legal profession who passed away so tragically and at such a relatively young age. She broke no laws in her representation of persons whose opinions are not “politically correct” and her actions were no more reprehensible than those of criminal lawyers who specialize in representing those accused of breaking the Criminal Code. Barbara Kulaszka’s professional activities were of considerable assistance in breaking the anti-democratic stranglehold over free speech exercised by the notorious Section 13 and we owe her a debt of gratitude for that. Jeff Goodall, Oshawa” – Toronto Star, July 16th, 2017.

Six items in total…

“Many muslims are refusing treatment by female staff here in Germany. The muslim men make sick, crude comments and overtures to the female staff members, because to them any non-muslim woman is a whore or a future slave. After brief exposure to these cruel, sadistic, female hating beasts, we, women, are refusing to go among those animals, especially the muslim men from Africa… Many of these muslim immigrants kidnapped children, so that, their social benefits would be higher once they landed in Germany… Finding that they would have to pay for the children’s drugs, they gave up the ruse and abandoned the children with pharmacy staff with the words: So, cure them here yourselves!..” – Nevo News, “A female doctor working in Germany warns the world” – unattributed, undated.

“Kulaszka, who died last month aged 64 but whose death was not publicized until Tuesday, is famous among the Canadian far right for winning acquittals under the law for people charged with hate crimes, or even undoing the laws used to charge them… She was largely responsible, for example, for the fact that Canada has no law against false news and no human-rights ban on internet hate speech, and for the fact that no Nazi has been convicted in Canada of war crimes.” – Joseph Brean, “Far-right extremists converge at memorial for Toronto lawyer” – National Post, July 12th, 2017.

Six items in total…

“A hundred Islamists are now openly enforcing Sharia law on the streets of Berlin, according to local police who are investigating a recent string of violent assaults in the German capital… The self-appointed morality police involve Salafists from Chechnya, a predominantly Sunni Muslim region in Russia. The vigilantes are using threats of violence to discourage Chechen migrants from integrating into German society; they are also promoting the establishment of a parallel Islamic legal system in Germany.” – Soeren Kern, “Germany: Chechen sharia police terrorize Berlin” – Gatestone Institute, July 8th, 2017.

Crossroads!

Tuesday, July 4th, 2017

After a little over seven years researching for and writing this blog, I find myself ignoring other things that I should be doing. Most importantly to me, that means writing my memoirs. To that end, postings will be drastically reduced except whenever some event happens that I feel demands alternative attention.

I have said this once before, but now I mean it.

Five items in total…

“The University of Delaware is distancing itself from comments made by an adjunct professor after she said a college student who died after being held by North Korea ‘got exactly what he deserved’… The Wilmington News Journal reports that anthropology professor Kathy Dettwyler said on her personal Facebook page that Otto Warmbier was ‘typical of a mindset of a lot of the young, white, rich, clueless males’ she teaches.” – Associated Press, “Otto Warmbier, U.S. student who died after N. Korea detention, ‘got exactly what he deserved,’ Delaware prof says” – Toronto Sun, June 24th, 2017.

“If this cascade of low-tech, low-prep, self-initiated attacks like the Westminster and London Bridge episodes continues, it will become increasingly clear to hundreds of thousands and millions of British citizens that the government has become ineffectual. Then there will be dozens and hundreds of more Osbornes coming, and they will have a coherent ideology… The duty of the British government is to head this off, but not by policing the internet and hectoring people about ‘Islamophobia’. What is required is clear, definitive and effective action against the Jihad movement. Interning the radicalized and the preachers and teachers who inspired them would be an excellent start.” – John Thompson, “Terrorism in the mosque attack in London?” – Think Tank Of One, June 20th, 2017.

Canada’s 150th Birthday: We Are Running Out Of Time…

Saturday, July 1st, 2017

I arrived in Toronto on July 8th, 1966, in Canada’s 99th year. The population of Toronto was around 95% White, the rest being Indians (currently referred to as “indiginous” – the nom-du-jour can change quite frequently), and Blacks, whose ancestors arrived here via the Underground Railway. Others were few and far between.

One of the “others” was a Jamaican work-mate whose mother was Black and his father Jewish, a rather unusual mix I would think! He wanted to go out for a few beers after work one Friday, and we went to the El Mocambo, later to become famous thanks to the Rolling Stones, (with an assist from Justin Trudeau’s mother Margaret).
