Islam is gaining increased acceptance in the West, not a good thing for free societies. This article explores its increasing connections with the United States and details Huma Abedin’s myriad connections with the Muslim Brotherhood. She is, of course, Secretary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff. It is not a happy picture.

Socialism is not the Answer

Family Security Matters

“Assimilation is a crime against humanity.” So  said Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Islamic supremacist who is both prime  minister of Turkey and a close chum of President Obama.

The assertion ought to be infamous. But this is, after all, Islam we  are talking about – meaning, we are not talking about it.

You won’t read it in the American media, nor will you hear it from our  bipartisan Beltway profiles in courage. Both the Obama Left and the Republican  establishment are deeply invested in the fantasy that Erdogan, like Islam  itself, is our moderate ally – ironic, given that Erdogan himself is profoundly  offended at the very suggestion that there is such a thing as “moderate  Islam.” Yup, what you have been told is the plinth on which American Middle East  policy rests, is, according to Erdogan, not only a house-of-cards but:

… an insult to our…

    Maybe what we need is some of that “second amendment solution” proposed by Palin. Like what Breivek accomplished in Norway:

    The trial of Anders Behring Breivik has ended in Norway with a walkout by families of victims in protest at his attempts to justify the massacre.

    As he took the stand to explain why he had killed 77 people last July, some 30 people filed out of the courtroom.

    Saying he had acted to stop a Muslim invasion, he asked to be considered sane and to be acquitted.

    Breivik’s lawyer, Geir Lippestad, said his client had been driven by extreme politics.

    “The mother of these actions is not violence, it is an extreme, radical, political attitude”

    Breivik, 33, admits killing 77 people and injuring 242 on 22 July when he bombed government buildings in Oslo before shooting young Labour Party supporters at a camp on the island of Utoeya.

    “It’s not about his mental health – it’s about us never seeing him on the street again”

    “He has a right to talk – we have no duty to listen,” support group member Christian Bjelland said.

    Taking the stand, Breivik spent 45 minutes going over his reasons for the attacks.

    Reading from a prepared statement, he attacked everything he disliked about his country, ranging from non-ethnic Norwegian contestants being allowed to represent Norway at Eurovision to the effect of the TV series Sex And The City on public morals.

    Citing statistics about Muslim birth rates, he said he had made his attacks to prevent Norway from becoming a “multicultural hell”.

    It was, Mr Lippestad stressed on Friday morning, for the court to decide whether his client had been sane at the time of the attacks.

    Victims of the 22 July attacks in Norway

    8 people killed and 209 injured by bomb in Oslo
    69 people killed on Utoeya island, of them 34 aged between 14 and 17
    33 injured on Utoeya
    Nearly 900 people affected by attacks

    “The mother of these actions is not violence, it is an extreme, radical, political attitude, and his actions must be perceived from the point of view of right-wing extremist culture,” he said.

    He described his client as an ordinary young man with good friends and colleagues. How, he asked, would a man who was mentally ill have been allowed to join a shooting club?

    A mother who lost a child on Utoeya said all the focus on Breivik’s mental health had been draining.

    “It’s not about his mental health,” she told the court. “It’s about us never seeing him on the street again.”

    For survivors such as Khamshajiny Gunaratnam, the most pressing need is to hear the verdict after a trial …

    “After Aug 24, we can be done with it,” Gunaratnam told Reuters.

    With what witnesses described as a “joyous battle cry”, Breivik arrived at the island youth camp of the ruling Labour Party dressed as a policeman. He regarded his victims, the youngest of whom was 14, as brainwashed “cultural Marxists” whose support for Muslim immigration threatened Norwegian ethnic purity.

    Gunaratnam, aged 24, escaped the massacre by jumping into icy lake waters and swimming for her life. She survived because Breivik was busy shooting her friends in the head at point blank range, presuming she would drown.


    Beyond the survivors’ personal feelings, the country of five million people faces difficult decisions following its worst massacre since World War Two.

    Norway’s huge oil wealth has long set it apart from other nations. It has prospered outside the European Union, and its economy is expected to grow more than three percent this year while many European neighbors are stuck in recession.

    Likewise, its strong political and legal systems mean it has avoided the corruption that afflicts many other oil producers.

    With more than $600 billion in reserves from its oil fund, pristine forests and a welfare system that is the envy of the world, Norway has often looked haughtily at the rest of Europe.

    However, some Norwegians now believe their country must draw on the experience of other nations to debate issues such as immigration as the oil wealth attracts large numbers of foreign workers.

    These are being discussed more openly after the killings by Breivik, who believed the government’s immigration policies were adulterating Norwegian blood and leading to war with Muslims.

    “We know now that Norway can be a source of terrorism … it has led us to just start talking about what kind of society we want,” said Geir Lippestad, Breivik’s lawyer. “What to do about right-wing fundamentalists, access to internet sites by extreme groups. We have just started the discussion.”

    “Norway is more aware of racism now, of the issues of multiculturalism. Hopefully, we can start a process that Norway can open up more for the rest of the world,” he told Reuters.


    On the face of it little has changed since the killings. The foreign ministry has new road blocks on its nearby street and a security check has been set up at the prime minister’s office. But government ministers still walk around without bodyguards and you can drive right up to the parliament building.

    After the massacre, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg stressed that Norway would make no gut reactions that would infringe on its tradition of open democracy.

    When prosecution lawyers shook hands with Breivik at the start of the trial, this civility sent a deliberate message that he would not force changes on the Norwegian way of life.

    In some ways they succeeded. Opinion polls show more Norwegians accept multiculturalism – policies designed to accommodate differing communities – as the immigrants flock in.

    Norway’s population grew 1.3 percent last year, one of the fastest rates in Europe, and net immigration accounted for 71 percent of that growth. While immigrants arrived from all round the world, 70 percent of them came from Europe.

    “People are more aware of the danger of anti-Muslim rhetoric. We are more aware that some ideas can become very dangerous,” said Larsen.

    But Norwegians’ civility is being tested already. A 500-page official report last week into the attacks found a host of mishaps and mistakes by police and intelligence services allowed Breivik to carry on the attacks unimpeded.

    (Reuters) – The Norwegian anti-Islamic gunman who massacred 77 people said in court on Tuesday his shooting spree and bomb attack were “sophisticated and spectacular” and that he would do the same thing again.

    Anders Behring Breivik, 33, has pleaded not guilty and said he was defending his country by setting off a car bomb that killed eight people at government headquarters in Oslo last July, then shooting another 69 people at a youth summer camp organized by the ruling Labour Party.

    Taking the stand at his trial for the first time, the high school drop-out read from a statement for an hour, ignoring pleas from the judge to stop and sparking criticism from victims he was being allowed to use the trial for violent propaganda.

    The killer, a former business fraudster who lived with his mother, invoked Native American warriors such as Sitting Bull, raged against Islam and multicultural “hell” and warned of “rivers of blood” in Europe.

    “I have carried out the most sophisticated and spectacular political attack committed in Europe since the Second World War,” Breivik told the court in a monotonous, unemotional voice, seated with one hand on his papers and another on his leg.

    “The July 22 attacks were preemptive attacks to defend the Norwegian people and the Norwegian ethnicity.”

    “Yes, I would have done it again, because offences against my people … are many times as bad,” he said.

    His attacks were “based on goodness, not evil,” he added, saying that teenagers he murdered in cold blood on the island retreat were not innocent but political activists promoting multi-culturalism.
