Henryk Broder ved høringen “Antisemitisme i Tyskland”, 16.6.2008. Teksten kan læses her.
“Også antizionismen er en afsky ligesom den klassiske antisemitisme. Antizionisten har den samme indstilling til Israel, som antisemitten har til jøder. Han bekymrer sig ikke over hvad Israel foretager sig, men over at det overhovedet eksisterer.
Orwell ville have blogget
Idag er alle enige om at prise Orwell. Det var de bestemt ikke da han levede. Da han frem for alt var antitotalitarist og antikommunist, hadede venstrefløjen ham intenst. Idag hænger den sin hat på hans afsky for kolonialismen, det engelske klassesamfund og hans hjerte, der brændte for de fattige – så blev han alligevel én af deres. For fattig havde han selv været, (læs “Down and out in London and Paris” hele bogen her) og han havde pengesorger hele sit liv. Han skrev nogle halvdårlige romaner, man godt kan springe over, men læs – foruden de berømte – hans Collected Essays, Journalism and Letters i fire bind. Eller vent til de kommer online. Jeg læste dem da de udkom som Penguins i 1970. Man skal ikke spilde sin ungdom med at læse dårlige bøger.
George Orwell started keeping a diary on August 9, 1938, and maintained it on a more or less daily basis till shortly before his death in 1950. Now the trustees for the Orwell Prize have decided, 70 years after his first entry, to post the diaries on the internet, a day at a time, an enterprise that should therefore continue till 2019 or 2020. Impatient readers don’t, of course, have to wait so long. The diaries have already been published in the 20-volume Complete Works, edited by Peter Davison, while excerpts from his wartime diary were included in the four-volume Collected Essays, Journalism and Letters, edited by Sonia Orwell and Ian Angus, first published by Secker & Warburg in 1968, and then by Penguin two years later.
George Orwell would have blogged
Bruce Bawer: »European Muslims Debate: Should Gays Be Executed?«
Norway’s Islamic Council still can’t decide.
One of the pillars of the future totalitarian state in 1984 is the practice of doublethink, which Orwell defined as
“the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them. … To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies — all this is indispensably necessary.”
As it happens, this is a precise description of exactly what’s been going on in many parts of Europe in recent years, as multicultural ideology has been confronted by realities about Islam that, in a doublethink-free world, would send that ideology crashing to the ground in flames.For a case in point, I will refer the reader to an episode I’ve mentioned previously in this space — an Oslo debate last November at which the deputy chairman of Norway’s Islamic Council, Asghar Ali, refused to reject the death penalty for gays. When Senaid Kobilica, the head of the Islamic Council (which represents 60,000 Muslims), was asked where he stood on the question, he replied that he couldn’t give a definitive answer until he got a ruling from the European Fatwa Council. This week it was reported that he’s still waiting……….. Bruce Bawer
Fears over Brussels plans for ‘European CIA’ which would force Britain to share security secrets
(Grafik og link: Gates of Vienna). Argumentet med den mulige konsekvens mht. forholdet til USA er højst interessant. Det der allermest er påkrævet lige nu er et paradigmeskift hen imod fuld åbenhed om situationen i de vestlige lande vis-a-vis islam. Et skift der betyder fuld åbenhed om kendsgerninger; stop for lammende selvcensur og poetiske omskrivninger af frygt (islamofobi) for hysteriske og voldelige reaktioner fra de altid krænkede; brug af den korrekte terminologi som ‘jihad’, og henvisninger til islamisk historie og teologi; åbenhed omkring den kendsgerning at det ikke ‘blot’ drejer sig om ‘terrorisme’, men om at denne terror har et mål som udspringer af mainstreamislam, og at truslen i måske endnu højere grad kommer fra demografien og petrodollars brugt på undergravende virksomhed. Der skal fuld åbenhed om disse ting før vi overhovedet kan begynde at løse problemerne.
Det er disse forhold som vi her i blogverdenen prøver at skabe mere opmærksomhed om. Jeg er dog så realistisk at jeg erkender at vi næppe ad oplysningens vej kan få virkeligheden frem i lyset, og ‘dialogbænkene’ og al pludderet og selvbedraget sendt på historiens mødding. Den politiske og psykologiske modstand er massiv. Men hvis USAs kolde, nationale sikkerhedsinteresser kan nødvendiggøre en cut-the-crap-tilgang til virkeligheden, kunne gennembruddet komme. Den samme problemstilling findes i øvrigt også i spørgsmålet om sikkerheden i europæiske lufthavne og de transatlantiske flyvninger (LFPC).
Brussels is planning a ‘Euro CIA’ which would threaten Britain’s national security by forcing MI5 to pool its intelligence, critics warn. France and Germany are pushing for the sharing of security secrets and far greater integration between national police forces to tackle terrorism.
It led to fears that the U.S. would stop sharing important security secrets with the UK because the European Union has such a problem with leaks. [...]
It would be in charge of a network of anti-terror centres, which would have access to secret intelligence from each of the EU’s 27 countries. The plan has already been dubbed the European CIA, named after the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency.- The eurosceptic organisation Open Europe said that any EU version would be far less effective and reliable than its American counterpart – and would put Britain’s relationship with the U.S. at risk.
‘Moves towards a Euro CIA are not a good idea,’ said Open Europe’s Neil O’Brien. ‘The U.S. will not share intelligence with us if we are going to pass it on to an organisation which leaks like a sieve. We could find ourselves putting a lot into such an organisation and getting very little back.’
The issue of EU leaks was raised two years ago by Finnish foreign minister Erkki Tuomioja, who said: ‘For a long time it has been known that, within an hour after being distributed to the member states, all EU documents concerning the Middle East have already reached Tel Aviv, and probably Washington and Moscow.’[...]
However, the Future Group document says anti-terrorist campaigns can only be effective if ‘maximum information flow between (EU) member states is guaranteed’.
It says: ‘Relevant security related information should be available to all security authorities in the member states’, adding that ‘networks of anti-terrorist centres’ were a possible solution.
Mr O’Brien also accused France and Germany of pushing ahead with proposals in the Lisbon-Treaty to create a Europewide police force, despite the treaty’s rejection by Irish voters.
The Future Group document also suggests that by 2014, the EU should have a common immigration policy.
Last night Conservative Europe spokesman Mark Francois said: ‘Everyone knows our Europhile Foreign Secretary David Miliband has other things on his mind at the moment but he should be focusing on these worrying proposals.

Quo Vadis Gutmensch?
Interessant spekulation angående udsigterne for Gutmenschen på længere sigt, når kognitiv dissonans vil tvinge dem til at vælge side mellem deres idealer og de barbariske realiteter: “Many – or even most – will choose the path of the (alleged) least resistance, and side with the Muslims, and discard the few remaining values of the Occident they have professed”. Jeg forestiller mig nok mere at denne indre konflikt vil dele vandene, så ens sande jeg – som Gutmenschen-identiteten har dækket over – vil træde i karakter. De virkeligt konfliktsky og ondskabsbenægtende radikale temperamenter vil, tvunget af overlevelsesinstinktet og hensynet til deres børns sikkerhed – komme over på vores side i en konfliktfase. De autoritære, socialisterne, de voldelige autonome narcissister og de søgende sjæle vil sikkert i langt højere grad producere konvertitemner end de bløde radikale. Konversion er mere end blot en formalitet, og derfor har jeg vanskeligt ved at forestille mig rent opportunistiske omvendelser fra denne sidste gruppe (LFPC).
Concepts such as “multiculture” and “cultural enrichment”, promoted and introduced not so long ago by Gutmenschen ["Goodpeople", also known as Useful Idiots], are nowadays merely used with an ironic undertone or as an insult in everyday conversations. Even orthodox Gutmenschen hardly use these concepts anymore, since they have lost control of their meaning. That is an indication of that the leftist hegemony is becoming to crumble and the monopoly of “Generation ’68” on the sovereign right to set the meaning of words is starting to fade.
Gradually even Green, Leftist [Liberal] and Social Democrat politicians start to notice that the wind has begun to change direction. It is still a very gentle draft that blows in the face of the green multicultural advocates, but it is just strong enough for many of these people to realize they will have to change their usual strategies in time, that fewer and fewer citizens can be kept quiet with hollow phrases, euphemisms, and slogans in such a hopeless situation.
In addition, from another direction the wind has begun to blow much more severely. The demands of Islamic federations, associations, and groups, as well as politicians with an Islamic background in the ranks of the Green and Left, are increasingly insistent, aggressive and self-assertive. The first examples of such politicians have already settled into managerial positions within these parties. Those who encouraged this development intentionally have come increasingly under pressure from two sides.
Up until now demands, such as the construction of large mosques or restriction of freedom of press (cartoon rows) have been supported without any limits. But it will not end with such demands – and many Gutmenschen know that.
– – – – – – – – –
For example, when representatives of Islamic federations openly demand to limit the rights of homosexuals and/or women, the strategy of concealment and denial no longer works, for the day of truth will have arrived for the supporters of the multicultural ideology. And that day is probably not too far off. In Norway, for example, the Islamic council asked for an Islamic legal opinion, a fatwa, on whether they should kill homosexuals. They are still waiting for the answer. What will Norwegian politicians do once a fatwa for killing homosexuals is issued in their country?
And one thing is clear, the greater the number of Muslims in a population, the more brutal their demands. The history of the once peaceful and prosperous Lebanon is rich didactic material here.
But most politicians and media continue buying time. By bending over backwards they still can try to sell the public the erosion of democratic values. But soon the time will come for the Gutmenschen in Germany to choose sides. And what then?
Many – or even most – will choose the path of the (alleged) least resistance, and side with the Muslims, and discard the few remaining values of the Occident they have professed. Perhaps one or another green or leftist in the future will be honored by the Islamists for the persecution of unbelievers.
The first symptoms of that already exist – when Islam-critics and opponents of the construction of mosques are smeared as Nazis, fascists, enemies of democracy, and racists, then one knows in which direction this road leads. Many Gutmenschen will then above all try to distinguish themselves as particularly diligent and very faithful Muslims. Provided of course that the new-potato Muslims will be accepted by the “born Muslims”.
Whether or not Abdullah Jones or Mustafa Smith will become successful in their new roles is more than questionable. Ethnic and religious tensions and conflicts within Islam are the rule rather than the exception.
A portion of the Gutmenschen and the intellectuals will hopefully also choose the other side and fight for democracy, freedom and human rights. With a little sense, one can be already determine who tends to choose which side. One thing, however: all Gutmenschen will try to escape responsibility as much as possible. A.

Fjordman: Den forhadte og foragtede europæiske kultur som det alligevel er attraktivt at tage æren for
Tankevækkende pointe om de mange bøger der forsøger at finde oprindelsen af europæisk kultur alle andre steder end i Europa. Som altid et læseværdigt essay af Fjordman på Brussels Journal (LFPC).
An intelligent reader will quickly see that all of these different claims cannot be true at the same time, yet they are all made at the same time. The point here is not whether any of them are correct, the point is to put down any sense of pride people of European origins might have in their historical achievements. It is a bit ironic that European culture is constantly derided for being racist, oppressive and evil, yet everybody else seems very busy with claiming the honor for having created it. If we are racist oppressors who rape the earth and create global warming, why are Muslims and others so eager to take credit for having created our culture? Shouldn’t they feel ashamed of themselves instead? France: Can a Wounded Nation Heal Itself?
Allah arresteret for besiddelse af kokain!
Vi dette føre til optøjer i stil med Motoon rage, for den blasfemi det er at navngive sig efter den Allerhøjeste, og så være en luset narkohandler? Selvfølgelig ikke, og realiteterne i verden i dag er som bekendt, at nogle avistegninger i et fjernt land anses for mere krænkende end narkohandel, der formentlig også vil blive set som legitimt, fordi det er foregået i et af de vantros lande, og derfor kan have gavnet islams sag (LFPC).
