Düsseldorf in the news again as migrants burn down asylum center

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 8, 2016

Invasion of Europe news…..

Dusseldorf

 

The ‘religion of peace’ strikes again!

We just reported last night that an Islamic terror plot targeted at the German city of Düsseldorf had been thwarted and now here is news that squabbles over a Ramadan wake-up call caused one group of Muslim ‘asylum seekers’ to go on a rampage against another group of Muslims burning down their asylum shelter in their rage.

Ahhhh!  The joys of forced multiculturalism.  It is so beautiful to behold.

From Breitbart:

A massive fire at Düsseldorf’s major international trade fair grounds yesterday has been followed by reports that the blaze was set deliberately by migrants who were angry because of Ramadan.

Officially, some 160 migrants were resident at hall 18 of the Messe Düsseldorf conference centre, but it was a facility plagued by racial conflict which had seen violence spark before. Düsseldorf’s Express newspaper reports these conflicts were not between European German staff and their guests, but between the predominantly Arab residents, and a minority of Afghans who sided with the security staff running the facility — who were mainly Iranian.

According to the testimony of “several burly Moroccan refugees” which the paper had spoken to even as the hall burnt down, the Iranians employed by the German state to look after other migrants from around the world had “deliberately” not woken the Arabs up in time for their Ramadan breakfast following a long run dispute.

Just three weeks ago there had been another, much smaller fire at the exhibition centre as a migrant set fire to his mattress in protest against the accommodation.

No Bible reading allowed in ‘refugee’ housing either!

Old story: Muslim populations rising rapidly in Australia and New Zealand; maybe not so much?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 7, 2015

I’ve been thinking lately that we need other demographic researchers to either back Pew or challenge Pew on its findings on the spread of Islam to the West.  I don’t like relying on one organization (related to Pew Charitable Trust that I know for a fact leans Left).

I just now told commenter, FatherJon, that maybe Australia would be alone one day in standing against the Muslim migration (since the government there has been steadfastly turning the illegal alien boats away).

I don’t know why this old news popped up in my alerts today, but since it is before the Abbott government took on the boat people, maybe there is still hope for Australia!  Will it be Australia Alone?

After Paris it became clear that Pew and others need to get on the stick and begin revising their out-dated demographic data!

From The Australian (2011):

THE number of Muslims in Australia will grow four times more quickly than non-Muslims over the next 20 years as the continued instability in developing Islamic countries in Southeast Asia drives migrants and refugees to these shores.

A major new study by the US-based Pew Research Centre has forecast a global surge in the Muslim population, with Australia and New Zealand among the nations expected to see the biggest rises.

In Australia, the Muslim community will grow from about 399,000 to 714,000 by 2030, an increase of 80 per cent.

In that time the non-Muslim population will increase by about 18 per cent.

This trend is even more dramatic in New Zealand, where there will be a 150 per cent rise in residents who adhere to Islam.

The projections, by the Pew Research Centre’s Forum on Religion and Public Life, have been calculated using fertility, mortality and migration rates.

But while the study confirms the continued spread of the Islamic faith — Muslims will comprise 26.4 per cent of the world’s population of 8.3 billion in 2030 — it anticipates that this growth will level off.

As living standards rise, more Muslims gravitate towards cities and women gain access to education and employment, the fertility rates in these communities will fall.

Bob Birrell, a sociologist and immigration expert from Monash University, said that while Middle East migration had plateaued, the forecast rises were “very plausible”. Family reunion, the refugee program and high levels of net migration would contribute to the growth, especially with the pressures to migrate in countries such as Indonesia, Pakistan and Malaysia, he said.

The Muslim population in Australia would still remain relatively low. At present, Muslims comprise 1.9 per cent of all Australians. That figure will rise to 2.8 per cent.

Don’t get too comfy!  My guess is that the tipping point of the ‘civilization jihad’ for a country comes at around 3%—the point where the Muslim population is emboldened and begins to demand shariah compliance.

Detroit Muslim woman sues police department over removal of hijab during arrest

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 27, 2015

We’ve been reading for years about the quiet jihad creeping into Europe, but as America increases its Muslim population, we will be hearing more and more about cases like this one from Detroit.

Writer Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily tells us this about the new lawsuit:

Malak Kazan with her attorney: She told Arab American News that she wants to “set a precedent.” Photo and story: http://www.arabamericannews.com/news/news/id_9951/Local-Muslim-woman-filing-lawsuit-against-Dearborn-Heights-Police-for-forcing-her-to-remove-hijab-during-arrest.html

With the rise of Muslim populations in cities across America has come an increase in culture clashes and legal challenges of laws and rules that have been on the books for decades.

In the latest reflection of that trend, a Muslim woman is suing the city of Dearborn Heights and its police department claiming her rights were “stripped at the jailhouse door” when she was forced to remove her hijab, or religious head scarf, while in custody for a driving violation.

According to the suit filed last Thursday in U.S. District Court in Detroit, police stopped Malak Kazan for driving with a suspended license on July 9, 2014.

While being processed at the local jail, Kazan was asked to remove her hijab, which the tenets of Islam require for “covering her hair, ears, neck and part of her chest when she is in public and when she is in the presence of men who are not members of her immediate family,” the suit said.

According to a report in the Detroit News, Kazan, 27, told an officer she could not remove the scarf because that would violate her religious beliefs. The officer informed her that this was standard procedure and there were “no exceptions” to the rule, according to the court filing.

Of course CAIR is now involved.

Read on, there is a lot of useful information in here.

By the way, for awhile a few years ago, the US State Department slowed resettlement to Michigan, but we note that it is now in the top five targeted states to receive more refugees.

Center for Immigration Studies: huge rise in Muslim immigration to America poses security threat

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 8, 2015

Here, at Newsmax, is a report of new findings by the Washington, DC based Center of Immigration Studies.  I might argue that the largest threat to America is not the threat of a terrorist attack, but a result of the less visible drip, drip, drip of demands for Shariah compliance which will only increase as the US Muslim population grows, ultimately changing America from within (without a bullet or bomb!).

Editor’s note:  I am away at meetings today.  Last night’s post brought out some commenters and since we screen our comments, don’t be surprised if yours isn’t posted right away.  I will get to it when I return.  Just remember, no foul language or personal threats!

Newsmax:

A new study shows that the number of immigrants in the United States jumped 3 percent in three years — to a record 41.3 million in 2013 — and that the nearly 300,000 who came from Muslim countries pose a major national security threat, the report’s co-author told Newsmax on Thursday.

The UNHCR has selected 9,000-10,000 Syrians for resettlement to the US this year. UN camps are primarily populated by Muslims. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/12/23/asst-secretary-of-state-anne-richard-we-have-1000-1500-syrian-referrals-coming-in-a-month/

“All of that does raise national security concerns, and I don’t think there has been any consideration of that,” said Steven Camarota, research director for the Center for Immigration Studies.

The Washington-based nonprofit organization released the study on Thursday. It is based on an analysis of Census data from 2010 to last year. Camarota conducted the study and co-authored it with CIS demographer Karen Zeigler.

“The primary threat from a group like ISIS to the homeland is through our immigration system,” Camarota said, referring to the Islamic State terrorist group that has beheaded three Westerners in recent weeks.

[….]

According to the study, the Middle Eastern population grew by 207,758 in the period, or 13 percent, to more than 1.8 million last year. That compared with 1.6 million in 2010 and 1.1 million in 2000.

Leading the growth from that region was Saudi Arabia, with 43,878 immigrants — nearly double the number who were in the U.S. in 2010. The analysis shows that 88,894 Saudis lived in this country last year.  [I would like to know under which program we are taking Saudis, clearly they are not “refugees.”]

Iraq was next, with about 41,094 immigrants, for a 26 percent increase to a total of 200,894.

But the total number of immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries totaled 295,743 in the period, according to the CIS study. That was up by 13.5 percent.

The total number of immigrants from primarily Muslim countries in the U.S. was more than 2.4 million last year, compared with 2.1 million in 2010 and 1.5 million in 2000.

Camarota attributed the rise in Mideast immigration to myriad U.S. policies, whether they granted asylum or refugee status to people from the region or involved the nation’s defense forces.

Read it all, no time to say more!

About the Syrians in the photo:  According to statistics I’ve received, 88% of the small number of Syrians who have (so far) arrived in the US as refugees (since 2010) are Muslims.

Germany: Anti-Islamists defy Merkel in Dresden, but the rest of Germany appears to say: Bring in MORE Muslims, we love them

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 6, 2015

The reports out of Germany (the few I’ve looked at) about yesterday’s protests across the country are a bit fuzzy, however the western media sure loved the fact that the Catholics of Cologne (are there many left?), in turning off the Cathedral lights, were sending a message of love and peace to their Muslim immigrants.

Dresden anti-Islam demonstrators yesterday (Reuters photo) and another news account, this time from AFP. http://www.wort.lu/en/international/dresden-german-anti-migrant-march-draws-highest-turnout-54ab86b30c88b46a8ce4ff61

Here is one report about Dresden where 18,000 reportedly show up in opposition to more Muslim immigration to Germany.  You know it is so interesting, this Bloomberg story has changed its headline since last night!  Today it is: Germans Protest Anti-Islamist Rally as Landmarks Go Dark.

And last night it was: Merkel rebuffed by record attendance at anti-islamist rally. I’m guessing Bloomberg said, oopsy! we aren’t in line with our media brethren!

No wonder it’s so hard to figure out what is going on—the Leftist media is making sure we get only their version of the news!  Bloomberg did tell us this:

About 18,000 people marched through Dresden yesterday night in the latest weekly rally backed by organizers who call themselves Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West, or Pegida. The group says it’s for stricter immigration and asylum laws, protecting“western culture” and avoiding “parallel societies” of Muslims in Germany.

Meanwhile, Deutsche Welle wants us to get the message that Germans in Cologne and Berlin love Muslim immigration!

Anti-Islamist ‘Pegida’ supporters have had to cancel their appearance in Cologne, where thousands of demonstrators showed solidarity with migrants.

Overwhelming support for immigrants and asylum seekers in Cologne led to the Pegida demonstrators cancelling their appearance. Citizens in Cologne shouted out in jubilation, the sole goal of their demonstration being to prevent the Kögida- the name of the anti-Islam movement in Cologne- from marching in their city. [Silencing speech—the sole goal!–ed]

Around 5,000 protesters gathered in a Berlin neighborhood, calling for more tolerance. Berlin’s integration leder Dilek Kolat of the Social Democrats called the Pegida- an acronym for Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West- “an attack on peaceful co-existence in our society.”

Good luck with that “peaceful co-existence!”

If we find more definitive news in the days ahead about what happened, we’ll link it here.

Germans hardening on Muslim immigration; large number want halt to mosque construction

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 7, 2014

Germans demonstrate against ‘Salafists’ in Cologne in October. Photo and story: http://headlinestodayss.blogspot.com/2014/10/protest-against-salafists-violent.html

 

According to this report there are 4 million Muslims in Germany (about 5 % of the population) while the US (supposedly) has only about 2.7 million.  CAIR claims 7 million in the US, but that would still put the US Muslim population below 3%.  I’ve been theorizing that 3% is a tipping point of sorts.  What do you think?  I would really like to know what some of you think about a tipping point and when it occurs.

From OnIslam (emphasis mine):

CAIRO – A new study on German perceptions of immigrants to the European country has shown a widespread view that Muslims are not German patriots, blowing away decades of integration of the four-million Muslim community.

“We wanted to find out what happened here after the immigration and who now belongs to the national collective” sociologist Naika Foroutan, Director of Empirical Integration and Migration Research (BIM), was quoted by Deutsche Welle.

[….]

According to Der Spiegel, 27 percent of respondents think that Muslims are more “aggressive than themselves”, while 30 percent believe that Muslims show less importance to education.

A fifth of respondents expressed a negative opinion about Muslims making demands in Germany, with about 20 percent seeing it as a sign of disrespect and 17 percent seeing it as a sign of ingratitude.

[….]

Moreover, 70 percent of respondents believed that the number of Muslims living in Germany was higher than it actually is.

Almost a quarter even believe that more than 21 percent of the population in Germany is Muslim, while in reality there is around five percent.

[….]

Sharing negative connotations about Islam and Muslims, a big percentage of respondents to the study rejected construction of new mosques.

The study showed that 42 percent demanded restricting the building of mosques.

[….]

Germans have grown hostile to the Muslim presence recently, with a heated debate on the Muslim immigration into the country.

A recent poll by the Munster University found that Germans view Muslims more negatively than their European neighbors.

[….]

The report (a 2012 study) indicated that 9 percent of Germans have adopted extreme right-wing beliefs, up from 8.2 percent two years ago.

For our complete ‘invasion of Europe’ series, go here. We have a lot on Germany too, here.  Will the 20,000 or more Syrians that Germany is about to resettle push it over the edge? We will be watching.

Denmark: Muslim immigrants getting most of the welfare (so what else is new?)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 19, 2014

The ‘Invasion of Europe’ continues….

Opposition party leader, Inger Støjberg, calls for tougher rules on Muslim immigration. http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-London/2014/07/30/Danish-politician-calls-for-tougher-rules-on-Muslim-immigration

From Breitbart:

Danish current-affairs magazine MandagMorgen has published a report on welfare and benefits which reveals that while the cost of supporting immigrants and their descendents has exploded, the cost of keeping native Danes is falling.

The magazine, which is a publication of one of Scandinavia’s leading think-tanks differentiates between “immigrants and descendants from non-Western countries” and ethnic Danes in its report. The revelation that the cost of welfare for the immigrants has increased by two billion kronor (over £200 million) since 2010 has prompted a bout of soul-searching amongst the leaders of Denmark’s Social Liberal pro-immigration party, who are presently part of the ruling coalition.

Denmark has experienced a sudden rush of immigration from these non-Western groups in past decades, and over one-in-ten Danes is now an immigrant or the descendant of one. Two thirds of immigrants, some 400,000, are non-Western, with Somalis, Turks, and Iraqis forming large, visible groups.

The arrival of large groups of immigrants from cultures unlike Denmark has caused friction within the country. An opposition politician was reported saying in July: “It is primarily Muslim immigrants who do not value democracy and freedom. In certain environments, they directly oppose it. Too many non-Western immigrants with Muslim backgrounds do not want our freedom-orientated society model.

Muslims sue government over delays in granting citizenship

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 4, 2014

Here is just a short piece from last week that should be noted.  I’m actually glad to see that some immigrants are being denied citizenship (or at least being seriously scrutinized) in light of the Obama Administration’s zeal in welcoming the world to America.

ACLU attorney Jennie Pasquarella: clients are long-time law-abiding residents. Photo: http://latinocalifornia.com/home/2012/07/el-condado-de-los-angeles-la-capital-de-las-deportaciones-en-ee-uu/

From the International Business Times:

Five Muslim US residents sued the federal government on Thursday, accusing the Department of Homeland Security for unfairly causing delays in their permanent residency and citizenship requests.

The plaintiffs include Palestinian Muslims Ahmad and Reem Muhanna, who had applied for US citizenship in 2007 and had their applications rejected in 2012. Others include Ahmed Hassan, a Muslim refugee from Somalia who has been seeking permanent residency since 2006, and Iranians Neda Behmanesh and Abrahim Mosavi.

The plaintiffs claim that their immigration petitions were unfairly stalled and flagged for potential national security concerns, reported Reuters.

The criteria laid out for flagging applications under the Controlled Application Review and Resolution Program (CARRP) are secretive and broader than authorized by the US Congress, the immigrants claimed.

Representing the immigrants in the federal court in Los Angeles was Jennie Pasquarella, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Southern California.

Addendum:  So where is CAIR?  Have they weighed in yet?

Australia: “most multicultural society on earth” wants more immigrants! Who knew!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 18, 2014

That’s what a recent article in The Australian reports as it tells us that 20% of respondents want more migrants to come to Australia in an article titled, Two-Thirds Majority Back Current or Higher Immigration Intake.

 

Here are the charming 20% who want higher levels of immigration to Australia as the Abbott government turns back asylum seekers. https://news.vice.com/article/the-australian-navy-is-towing-asylum-seekers-back-out-to-sea

 

I had to read this article a couple of times to figure out what the point of it all might be and am still not sure, except to use a “news” story to sway public opinion.

Remember, readers, as we know so well, Tony Abbott, Australia’s present Prime Minister was elected only last year because of his platform (which he apparently is working on daily to hear the squealing out of the UN) to slow the flow of boat people (faux asylim seekers) breaking into Australia.  The citizens there were completely fed up!

We frequently cite Australia, Israel and Bulgaria as three countries seriously attempting to close their borders.

Check out the article yourself (here is a bit of it) posted at American Renaissance (with some good commentary).   One thing seems clear, the pollsters polled heavily in immigrant neighborhoods and among young, rich, city dwellers.

Higher migration levels are favoured by a fifth of Australians, in an exclusive Newspoll survey revealing robust support for the most multicultural society on earth.

Nearly half the people ­surveyed support Australia’s ­existing immigration intake, which settled 190,000 immigrants last year in the world’s largest per capita intake. Two-thirds were skilled migrants.

Twenty-two per cent favour an even higher intake, with support strongest among the young, those on high incomes and capital city-dwellers.

European, African and Asian migration enjoys the strongest public support, with 26 per cent of Australians desiring more ­migrants from Europe. Another 18 per cent want to see more Asian migrants, and 20 per cent support more immigration from Africa.

In contrast, just 14 per cent of Australians want to see more Muslim migrants, and 37 per cent favour a cut.

Read it all.

By the way, about the same number (20%) of respondents who want higher immigration levels also say that Australians are racists.

LOL! This article could just as well have been titled:  86% of Australians polled want less Muslim migrants admitted to Australia.  I guess that would mean that some of the immigrants polled and some of the young, rich, city dwellers are Islamophobic.   Gee, I wonder why?

For new readers, see our Australia category with over 100 previous posts.  We especially want American readers to know that the invasion by the third world is happening in every advanced society and you need to know how others are handling the demographic upheaval.  Western society is under siege.

Sweden: whole school class of girls had genitals mutilated

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 25, 2014

Diversity is strength alert!

 

Oh my God!

 

As long-time readers know, Sweden is my bet for the first European country to fall to Islamic dominance.  We have an extensive archive, click here, on the insane Swedish Leftists who have opened their doors wide to any Muslim migrants who can get there!

Here is a story from last week (posted on World Refugee Propaganda Day no less) about a shocking discovery in Sweden!   All the girls in one school class were mutilated!

From Breitbart (hat tip: Judy).  Emphasis is mine:

School health services in the small Swedish city of Norrköping have found 60 cases of female genital mutilation (FGM) among schoolgirls since March, with evidence of mutilation found in all 30 girls in one class, 28 of the most severe form.

In Sweden, where the EU’s Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) says that FGM “is considered to be a serious problem,” the law enables genital examination of children to be carried out without parents’ consent.

FGM has been a crime in Sweden since 1982 and can be punished by up to four years in prison, increased to 10 years if judged to be an aggravated offence.

According to EIGE, concerns about FGM became widespread in Sweden in the early and mid-1990s with the influx of Somali migrants: “The first national action taken in the field…was initiated after alarming testimonies from the healthcare sector indicating the existence of FGM among many — if not all — women that originated from FGM-practising countries.”

If they are “refugees” who fear for their lives, what the hell are they doing going back to their “home country?”

Now the daughters of immigrants are in danger of undergoing FGM. According to the Local, the risk of becoming a victim of the procedure increases in the summer when many schoolgirls visit their parents’ home country: “We’re working to inform parents that they could face prison if they come back and their children have undergone female genital mutilation,” said Petra Blom Andersson, student health coordinator in Norrköping.

Mutilation carried out abroad has been a crime in Sweden since 1999.

In 2013, Somalis were the third largest group granted asylum in the EU countries, according to a Eurostat figures reported yesterday by Breitbart London, with almost 10,000 granted protection. Sweden gave refugee status to 26,400 people last year, more than any other EU country.

You know this is happening in America too!  The silence is deafening!
