From Germany without love: One in three muslim students in Lower Saxony declares himself ready to fight and die for islam. Screenshot via François Desouche:

Fraçois Desouche is in French, but here's the gist of the story in English via Breitbart:

"A survey of schools in the German region of Lower Saxony has shown that close to 10 per cent of Muslim students have direct sympathies for radical Islamic groups like Islamic State and some even support acts of terrorism.

One in three of the Muslim students who responded to the survey said that they would be willing to fight and die for Islam.

Twenty-seven per cent said they agreed with the statement: “The Islamic laws of Sharia, according to which, for example, adultery or homosexuality are severely punished, are much better than the German laws,” Die Welt reports.

Eight per cent said they agreed with the creation of an Islamic empire or caliphate in the Middle East through the use of force. A further 3.8 per cent said they agreed that sometimes it was justified for Muslims to engage in acts of terrorism to further their goals.

A fifth of the Muslim students agreed that Muslims are oppressed all over the world and they have to defend themselves by force, and 18.6 per cent said that it was the duty of Muslims to spread Islam and “fight unbelievers”.

The results come from a study conducted in 2015 that had previously not been made public. Criminologist Christian Pfeiffer made the data public as part of his own study into the cause of immigrant crime. The authors of the original study point out that only 280 Muslim students answered the survey but added that the results were noteworthy."

I checked out this Christian Pfeiffer and he seems to be a man with considerable stature in his line of, ahem, work. He was a Professor of Criminology at the Justice faculty of the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Universität in Hanover. He's also a former Director of the Kriminologischen Forschungsinstituts Niedersachsen (KFN). And, from 2000 to 2003, Justice Minister in Lower Saxony.

For the SPD.

So I guess that when it is a socialist telling us that one in three muslim students are prepared to wage jihad in Lower Saxony, well...

Martin Schulz, are you listening? Don't come whining 'Wir haben es nicht gewusst' afterwards.

First The Wallflowers with One Headlight...

... from the 1996 album Bringing Down the Horse. The Wallflowers were formed in 1989 in LA. Frontman is Jakob Dylan, son of.

Texas with Black Eyed Boy. Album White on Blonde (1997).

Although Sharleen Spiteri often acts as though she is sexy (in her vids anyway), oddly I never ever thought of her that way. Can't put my finger on it why not, exactly.

Nou.... slaap wel allemaal. Die aan deze kant van de bol in elk geval.

On DEC 26, 2017, the BAF F-16 detachment took off from their base in Jordan for the last time and flew back to Belgium, a trip which took 6 hours and during which they were refuelled by an Armée de l'Air tanker. During one and a half year, from July 1, 2016 to December 26, 2017, the jets (during the first year 6, from July 2017 4), logged 6,108 flying hours. Like in the previous deployments, the BAF air strikes accounted for 5 per cent of the coalition total. More info here. As before, the Dutch Air Force will now take over.

Before long, another detachment of 4 planes which operated from Amari AFB, Estonia since September 4, will also return home. They had been posted there in the framework of NATO's Enhanced Air Policing Mission. This deployment was the seventh.

The two simultaneous missions, although still very modest, leave open the question of what the Belgian military would be capable of if only it did not have to operate on less than a shoestring budget. There is indeed no department that has had to cut its budget for so long and so profoundly like defense.

As for the venerable F16's successor, another one of the candidates for replacement, Boeing with its F/A-18 Super Hornet, pulled out of the bidding process in April of 2017 already. The Saab Gripen is also out of the question since it cannot be equipped with nuclear weapons. The French government just recently probably overplayed its hand in promising Belgium 20 billion EUR in economic compensations if the BAF would decide for the Dassault Rafale. So basically there are only two serious contenders left: the Eurofighter Typhoon and the Lockheed Martin F-35A. The latter would be the most logical choice since it is truly a 5th generation aircraft, now outgrowing its development difficulties fast, but more importantly, the Dutch already use it (as do the Norwegians) and if the anti-ISIS operations over Syria and Iraq, and before that, the missions in Afghanistan, have shown anything, it's that by using the same aircraft the air forces of the Low Countries can and will develop even more synergies. A final decision is expected in the course of this year. It's about time.

Upcoming in the UK at least. Do not miss this marvelous movie review of Darkest Hour by Mark Steyn.

And here's the trailer, featuring an unrecognizable but all the more credible Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill:

After a month of Blitzkrieg Europe was stunned, and Britain ready to do business with Hitler. One man's steadfast refusal to give in prevailed. There's an excellent book out there by John Lukacs, "5 Days in London".

After reading it, you will know how close Europe had come to being a Nazi continent. The entire course of history would have been radically different than it is today - and much more horrifying.

One man stood in the way. Winston Spencer Churchill, Greatest Statesman Of All Times. This is what Elizabeth Nel, née Layton, his personal secretary during the war years, had to say about him:

"[T]hat great man – who could at any time be impatient, kind, irritable, crushing, generous, inspiring, difficult, alarming, amusing, unpredictable, considerate, seemingly impossible to please, charming, demanding, inconsiderate, quick to anger and quick to forgive – was unforgettable. One loved him with a deep devotion. Difficult to work for – yes, mostly; loveable – always; amusing – without fail."



Via DailyCaller:

"A man armed with a machete assaulted an elderly volunteer worker at a homeless shelter in Shelburne, Vt., Friday morning, according to local police.

32-year-old Abukar Ibrahim attacked a 73-year-old Meals on Wheels volunteer while she was delivering food to Harbor Place, which provides temporary emergency housing to those in need. While in the office, the female victim reportedly saw Ibrahim vandalizing her car. When she confronted him and tried to intervene, the man became violent, assaulting her with a machete, according to police.

The woman was taken to the University of Vermont Medical Center with multiple injuries, including a “significant leg wound.” She received treatment and was later released.

In the wake of the attack, Ibrahim, who police identified as the assailant, barricaded himself in a room for two and a half hours. He supposedly taunted police officers from inside the room before deciding to come out and surrender. The attacker was sent to the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility on charges of attempted murder."

How long will we keep tolerating these subhumans?

A sixty year old man died of his wounds after an explosive device he picked up from the street blew up in his face. Another one nearby was wounded. Photo courtesy François Desouche:

Via The Graudian:

“We’re suspecting that it’s a hand grenade of some sort,” Lars Alvarsjo, chief of Stockholm’s southern police district, told the Swedish national broadcaster SVT.

Mr Alvarsjo said Swedish police have “unfortunately” noticed a rise in the use of hand grenades by criminal groups in the Nordic country. The three biggest cities in Sweden – Stockholm, Goteborg and Malmo – have seen several violent gang-related incidents in the past few years. Many of the illegal hand grenades found in Sweden are being imported from former Yugoslav nations, he said.

Yeah right. Violent gang-related incidents. Gangs with Lars, Jens, Per and Agneta on the payroll no doubt.

In 2002, Mona Sahlin, a prominent politician of the Swedish Social Democrats, adressed members of Euroturk, a Turkish youth organization, saying:

"I can not figure out what Swedish culture is. I think that's what makes many Swedes jealous of immigrant groups. You have a culture, an identity, a history, something that brings you together. And what do we have? We have Midsummer's Eve and such silly things.

Thank Gaia and Allah, these days Swedish culture's got now less of these silly things, now there's hand grenades exploding à volonté and gang-related 'incidents'! No reason anymore to be jealous!!!

Phil Collins again with Take Me Home. From the 1985 album No Jacket Required.

And among the cities in which the video was shot there's Kamakura, Japan, pop. 175,000, which has Nashville as sister city.

Rush with Grand Designs. Album Power Windows (1985).

First Rush album to be produced by Peter Collins, and it had five singles out of eight tracks, not a coincidence imho.

Good night.



On December 27, 2017, in Kandel, North Rhine-Westphalia, illegal immigrant Abdul D., one of Merkel's countless VIP guests, stalked 15 year old Mia and thrust his knife straight into her heart.

This is the victim:

Via PI-News:

"On the 27th of November Merkel's junior guest Abdul D. fisted a school colleage with such force in the face that the latter's glasses stuck to his face. On the 27th of December, the undocumented girl stalker, decorated with a prohibition of deportation, thrust his knife straight into the heart of 15 year old Mia. In the meantime, the Public Prosecutor [of NRW, MFBB] published the results of the autopsy. According to the report the Afghan would have stabbed the victim repeatedly. The stab in the heart was mortal. Those who ram a knife in somebody else's heart have the intention to kill, isn't it? That the Afghan who lived 36 kilometers away in Neustadt was in Kandel during school holiday and encountered Mia, would have been a "coincidence". Coincidentally, he had a knife with him. Coincidentally, the knife pierced the heart."

This is the killer:


More info here. Sorry, I have neither the time nor the heart to translate it, but the role of the German judiciary, the organizations enthusiastically embracing these subhumans (placing them in the houses of gullible Gutmenschen no less), and of all political parties with the exception of AfD is zum kotzen.

Last Tuesday in the evening in Kandel, between 400 and 600 Germans took part in a silent march for the teenage girl stabbed to death by the follower of the prophet. At some point they were harassed by some 30 leftwing nutcases doing a counterdemo "fuer ein buntes Deutschland" [for a colourful Germany - MFBB]. Via our friends at Gates of Vienna:

Excuse me now while I go puke.

The assholes at YouTube have been at it again, since they pulled Pat Condell's latest video because they consider it a criminal offense if Condell calls muslim welfare seekers who sexually harass/rape western women, well, "criminal". Luckily there's Vimeo:

Antwerp, December 16, 2017. Via Voice of Europe:

According to HLN:

"With the purchase of two American armoured cars of the 'BearCat' type, the Antwerp PD will from now on be excellently equipped to intervene during incidents involving heavy weapons. The BearCats arrived yesterday in the harbour. The public will see them for the first time during the upcoming fireworks on the Leien. The Antwerp PD will be the first oe in Belgium to be equipped with the type. The vehicle, produced by US company Lenco, is used worldwide by special police and army units as an armoured rescue vehicle."

Well, too bad they didn't have them BearCats yesterday night in Molenbeek. Again via HLN:

Interior Minister Jan Jambon after unruly New Year's night: "What happened in Brussels yesterday really cannot pass."

"In Molenbeek there were riots between 11pm and 2am this morning, Police Chief Johan Berckmans of Brussels West (Jette/Ganshoren/Koekelberg/Sint-Agatha-Berchem/Sint-Jans-Molenbeek) says. Groups of youths lit car tires in the neighborhood of Leopold II Avenue and at the metro station Zwarte Vijvers, and subsequently pelted police and fire crews with stones. Some three vehicles were lightly damaged. "The firefighting vehicle was pelted with stones and got damaged, but luckily none of our men were wounded", says Fire Department spokesman Pierre Meys. At the West Station a car was torched too. For the moment no suspects have been arrested, but police is investigating several people."

Yet all of that is small beer compared to France, where across the country a staggering 1,031 vehicles were set ablaze and the police and security services arrested some 510 individuals:

There are more stories like that from the UK and Germany.

In other news, the muslim influx in Europe through migration and family reunification continues unabated.

Hi there, if you read this it means you made it to the end of 2017...

... personally, for me a year with a lot of challenges, but all in all, made it through more or less okay. And that's a LOT, isn't it?

Thanks for tuning in, have a YUUUUUUGE party if you can, and best wishes for the New Year!!!

I am currently reading Andy Weir's latest, Artemis, and while so far I'm finding it a lesser opus than The Martian (I'm not the only one, it seems), it's doable. The story is set in Earth's first Moon base, called, you guess it, Artemis. More on the book later, when and if I get through it. But the story fired up my imagination, so I checked out how far actual plans to build such a base stand.

Turns out, relatively promising.

Last year, The Daily Mail had a rather jubilant piece on the possibility of there being a Moon Base quite soon, possibly from 2022 on. I don't believe a word of that, but the article is at least convincing in making the case that the technologies envisaged are already there.

Here's a glimpse of what such a base might look like, courtesy the European Space Agency (ESA) and architectural firm Foster + Partners. Inflatable habitats to be covered by robots capable of 3D-printing, with the bulk of the printed stuff actually made out of the Moon's regolith. The capsules transporting the habitats would then serve as airlocks:

And here's a fascinating video of how the building would/could take place:

Also, check out this article. Now, if a certain brand of politicans could just make their imagination work instead of focusing on evolutionary dead enders ....

Re the vehicular jihadist who mowed down 19 people in Melbourne almost a week ago, the Master Chronicler of the West's own organized demise is his usual brilliant self in this article.

"So there will be more empty seats round the Christmas table this year, after an "Australian citizen" mowed down pedestrians at the junction of Flinders Street and Elizabeth Street in Melbourne. The casualties include "a pre-schooler with serious head injuries". The "Australian citizen" (I presume this designation is being used to emphasize that he's entirely eligible to serve in Mr Turnbull's cabinet) did it deliberately, but relax, lighten up, there's no need to worry because, according to Victoria's police commissioner, all this terrifying terror is "not terror-related".

So he's not a crack operative with the Islamic State's Australian branch office, he's just, as The Age's cheery headline writer puts it, "of Afghan descent and mentally ill". A second man, arrested while filming the scene and found to have three knives in his bag, is believed to be nothing to do with the first man. Just another Australian citizen taking his knife collection out for a stroll.

You'll recall there was a previous "vehicle attack" in downtown Melbourne earlier this year, after which the authorities ordered up the bollardization of every pedestrianized precinct in the vicinity. As Andrew Bolt writes:

~ All the bollards put up after six people were killed in Bourke St Mall in January have not stopped this.

After the Halloween jihadist killed eight people on a bike path in Lower Manhattan, New York's bollardizers commanded similarly extravagant installation of Diversity Bollards up and down the city. As I wrote:

~ Last week I was tootling through Williston, Vermont, which has just reconfigured its highway system to run green-painted bike paths down the center of the streets. And the thought occurred to me that, once you've bollarded off every sidewalk, what's to stop jihadists mowing down cyclists? After all, if the eco-crowd are installing them in the middle of the roadway, they're kind of hard to bollard off.

I was over-thinking the issue. One of the problems with bollarding off pedestrians behind a wall of Diversity Bollards is that they still occasionally have to emerge from behind the bollards to cross the street, and it's hard to bollard off a pedestrian crossing. In this case, the non-terror-related Australian citizen simply waited until the little green sign indicated it was safe for pedestrians to cross the street and then floored it. In an amusing touch, his car eventually came to a rest against a bollard.

What's the solution? Maybe automobile manufacturers could replace airbags with Diversity Bollards timed to inflate whenever non-terror-related drivers with mental-health issues accelerate near pedestrian crossings. Or perhaps it would be easier to issue citizens of western nations at birth with an individual ring of bollards to wear about their persons at all time, starting with when they leave the maternity ward.

Alternatively, instead of attempting to ring-fence every potential target - ie, everything and everyone - with Diversity Bollards, we could try installing bollards where they matter - around the civilized world. To reiterate what I reiterated last time:

~ I don't want to get used to it - and I reiterate my minimum demand of western politicians that I last made after the London Bridge attacks: How many more corpses need to pile up on our streets before you guys decide to stop importing more of it?

If your congressman or senator says that's not on his agenda, what he means is he's willing to sacrifice you and your loved ones in the suicide lottery of diversity."


Coincidentally, at around the same time Mr Steyn's piece went up, Alexander Naessens, widower of Ann-Laure Decadt, felt compelled to teach The Great Unwashed a lesson in morality. Who is, or rather was, Ann-Laure Decadt? She is the Belgian mother of two who was one of 8 deadly victims in the OCT 31, 2017 terror attack in Lower Manhattan, when Uzbek Sayfullo Saipov plowed his pickup truck into bikers in Lower Manhattan, injuring and maiming eleven more besides killing Decadt, five Argentinians, and two Americans. Via HLN:

"On the perpetrator of the attack Naessens has no feelings. "No positive, no negative. At this point, my sorrow is too big yet to leave room for anger and feelings of revenge."

Naessens exhorts the population to not resort now to black-and-white thinking about "certain population groups". "My wife would also have liked it that way. She was a very positive person and gave everybody a second chance. She gave every beggar money, sometimes until it annoyed me."

Right. Do not "resort to black and white thinking about "certain population groups". Which sane people translate as "By all means let no one think this has ANYTHING to do with islam." Even when Saipov shouted "Allahu Akbar" when he got out of the pickup, prayed at a mosque under surveillance in Paterson, NJ, and asked staff in the hospital where he was treated afterwards (a shot in the stomach put him down), to hang an ISIS flag in his room.

"I hope that terrorism will not split up society".

YOU F*CKING IDIOT. In case you didn't notice, society IS already split up. Which is what you get when "certain population groups" definitely DON'T want to intermingle with the original locals. Molenbeek is 80 per cent muslim JUST BECAUSE "certain population groups" DON'T want infidels living among and near them!

Mr. Naessens' outrageous words are reminiscent of the French"man" Antoine Leiris, who, post the Bataclan and other muslim terror attacks in Paris during which he lost his wife, proudly exclaimed "that you will not have my hatred". At the time, I had a small post up about his unsavoury sermon here.

The tragic case of Ann-Laure Decadt follows, a.o., that of Elke Vanbockrijck, a Belgian mother of two who was killed with thirteen others in the islamic terror attacks in Barcelona on August 17 last summer...

(I bet you had already forgotten about that)...

... and that of Mailys Dereymaeker, a mother of one from Halle, central Belgium, who was killed when a follower of the prophet plowed his truck into a shopping crowd in Stockholm in April of this year:

Miss Dereymaeker worked as a psychologist in asylum centers, where she counseled people like Rakhmat Akilov, who reduced her to a gory, bloody mess necessitating almost two days
before she could be identified:

As long as society remains more paralyzed with fear of telling the truth regarding the terror - i.e. the islamic faith and islamic terror are two sides of the same coin - than with fear for the actual attacks themselves, nothing will change.

And more Belgian women will return home in bodybags. Insofar they haven't been killed here. Along with other, ah, genders.

In short, do not heed the messages by the likes of Alexander Naessens. The Alexander Naessens types are symptoms of the disease.
