MINNESOTA MOSQUE PRODUCING RADICAL SOMALI TERRORISTS

Muslims using welfare to bankrupt Europe

europe-is-cancer

It’s not just bombs and bullets that Islamic terrorists are using to wage jihad against the West.

It’s the European welfare system.

Radical Islamic leaders have revealed that part of their strategy of conquest is exploiting liberal immigration and welfare policies — leeching off the West’s generous benefits while plotting to establish Islam as the dominant force in countries like Belgium, Denmark, and others.

Terrorists have begun bragging about how the system redistributes money from Christians, Jews, and secularists to Islamists, and saying that their plans involve Muslim “refugees” signing up in droves for unemployment, food stamps, and cash welfare benefits, then using the free time Western taxpayers underwrite to wage jihad.

Drawing on centuries of religious doctrines, many imams teach that non-Muslims must pay a tax – called the jizya – to Muslims as a way of establishing Islamic domination.

They sees welfare to refugees as a modern day equivalent of the infidels bowing and scraping before their Islamic superiors.

An Islamic teacher living in Britain, Anjem Choudary, told his fellow Muslims, “The normal situation is for you to take money from the kuffar [infidels].”

While birthrates in the West decline, the Islamists are focused on having large families and taking over countries demographically.

Choudary specifically bragged in 2013 that “Brussels is 30 percent, 40 percent Muslim.”

And they use their free time to plot violence. Choudary called welfare the “Jihad-Seeker’s Allowance.” And he has been willing to put your money where his mouth is: He is currently on trial for using social media to encourage people to support ISIS.

He is far from alone, in Europe or America.

A woman called an “al-Qaeda living legend” was receiving more than $1,100 a month in government unemployment benefits in Belgium at the time she was arrested for plotting to attack an EU summit in Brussels;
A total of 28 people who supported ISIS received welfare in Denmark, collecting up to $134 a day for two years;
The Tsarnaev brothers, who were responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing, received food stamps and other welfare payments over a number of years; and
One of the terrorists who admitted to being part of the 9/11 conspiracy, Zacarias Moussaoui, received welfare payments while living in London. Evidently, European welfare programs help finance jihad against the United States, as well as in the EU.
The data show that Muslims are far more likely to use public benefits than needy Americans. Sen. Jeff Sessions found that more than 90 percent of recent Middle Eastern “refugees” are on food stamps, and almost 70 percent receive cash welfare benefits.

All of this helps Muslim fanatics plan to topple the West from within.

And our leaders could not be more misguided. Over the weekend, Barack Obama used his weekly radio address to day that “our openness to [accepting] refugees” from the Middle East is “another weapon” against terrorism “alongside our airstrikes, our military, [and] our counterterrorism work.”

EU elites have opened the floodgates of violent jihad against its citizens through their open door immigration policy and suicidal welfare state policies. If they won’t solve their problem, at least the United States should – by slamming the door on Muslim immigration and demanding that immigrants who come to these shores can pay their own way.

TOP MUSLIM IMAM ADMITS AGENDA TO CONQUER EUROPE, IT INVOLVES “BREEDING”

239057
Undercover footage broadcast by a Danish TV station shows Mohammad Fouad al-Barazi, the head imam of the mosque of the Islamic Union in Denmark, admitting that the goal of the migrant influx is for Muslims to conquer Europe. The clip was shown as part of a Danish TV2 series called Mosques behind the veil. It shows al-Barazi acknowledging, “Right now we are in a time when we are opening these countries.” According to Islamic experts the station spoke to, including Professor Tina Magaard and Professor Thomas Hoffmann, the Islamist understanding of the word “open” means to conquer. The imam also encourages Muslims arriving in the west not to integrate into society. “When I came to this country 23 years ago, we were only 55,000 Muslims. Now we are 300,000. The number of Muslims is 300,000 now. Hence the conclusion of this talk is that it is possible to live in this country without melting in. You must understand the conditions, without melting into society,” said al-Barazi. This is by no means the first time that a prominent imam has admitted that the migrant influx is part of a Muslim conquest of Europe. Sheikh Muhammad Ayed gave a speech at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem in which he asserted that Muslims should use the migrant crisis to breed with European citizens and “conquer their countries.”

The Game Changed in Venezuela Last Night – and the International Media Is Asleep At the Switch

The Game Changed in Venezuela Last Night – and the International Media Is Asleep At the Switch

Listen and understand. The game changed in Venezuela last night. What had been a slow-motion unravelling that had stretched out over many years went kinetic all of a sudden.

What we have this morning is no longer the Venezuela story you thought you understood.

Throughout last night, panicked people told their stories of state-sponsored paramilitaries on motorcycles roaming middle class neighborhoods, shooting at people and storming into apartment buildings, shooting at anyone who seemed like he might be protesting.

People continue to be arrested merely for protesting, and a long established local Human Rights NGO makes an urgent plea for an investigation into widespread reports of torture of detainees. There are now dozens of serious human right abuses: National Guardsmen shooting tear gas canisters directly into residential buildings. We have videos of soldiers shooting civilians on the street.

And that’s just what came out in real time, over Twitter and YouTube, before any real investigation is carried out. Online media is next, a city of 645,000 inhabitants has been taken off the internet amid mounting repression, and this blog itself has been the object of a Facebook “block” campaign.

What we saw were not “street clashes”, what we saw is a state-hatched offensive to suppress and terrorize its opponents.

Here at Caracas Chronicles we’re doing what it can to document the crisis, but there’s only so much one tiny, zero-budget blog can do.

After the major crackdown on the streets of large (and small) Venezuelan cities last night, I expected some kind of response in the major international news outlets this morning. I understand that with an even bigger and more photogenic freakout ongoing in an even more strategically important country, we weren’t going to be front-page-above-the-fold, but I’m staggered this morning to wake up, scan the press and find…

Nothing.

As of 11 a.m. this morning, the New York Times World Section has…nothing.

GERMAN WOMAN: Describes What Muslim Migrants Are Doing In Her Town – And It’s TERRIFYING


This should be a warning to the rest of Europe and to America about what their future holds with these ‘refugees’.

German woman, visibly shaken, tells how she was followed by an asylum seeker, who she believes wanted to rob her or worse. And she had originally moved to the small community for a quiet safe place to raise her child…She had been out in broad daylight 12:30pm with her child when a man she was sure was an asylum seeker began to act strangely…hiding behind a bush, then following her…she turned around to directly confront him: “WHAT DO YOU WANT?” She demanded…He laughed and went away…but she is now scared to walk on the streets. She mentions that she is a tolerant person and feels sympathy for the families and children of the refugees, but she can no longer close her eyes to what is going on. She thinks that there are certainly other people who feel the same way, and makes a plea to Chancellor Merkel that this must end. Germany has taken on enough refugees. She mentions another incident where she and her child wanted to enter a playground area but there were 5 asylum seekers congregated there…she could not trust herself to go past them with her child. The woman says she can no longer keep quiet about what is going on in Germany. It must come to an end! (Pamela Geller)

Europeans Want Guns as Islamic Invasion Causes Social Chaos

Austrians are arming themselves at record rates in an effort to defend their households against feared attacks from Muslim invaders.

Tens of thousands of Muslim “refugees” have poured into Austria from Hungary and Slovenia in recent months on their way to Germany and Sweden, two wealthy European countries that have laid out the welcome mat for migrants. More than a million will end up in Germany alone by the end of this year, according to estimates from the German government.

Obtaining a working firearm and ammunition in Germany, Britain, Denmark and the Netherlands is practically impossible for the average citizen. Germany, for instance, requires a psychological evaluation, the purchase of liability insurance and verifiable compliance with strict firearms storage and safety rules. And self-defense is not even a valid reason to purchase a gun in these countries.

The laws in Austria, while still strict, are a bit less overbearing.

A Czech TV report confirms that long guns – shotguns and rifles – have been flying off the shelves in Austria, and Austrians who haven’t already purchased a gun may not have a chance to get one for some time. They’re all sold out.

And those arming themselves are primarily women.

“If anyone wants to buy a long gun in Austria right now, too bad for them,” the Czech newscaster says. “All of them are currently sold out.”

The Greek Vote and the EU Miscalculation

By George Friedman

In a result that should surprise no one, the Greeks voted to reject European demands for additional austerity measures as the price for providing funds to allow Greek banks to operate. There are three reasons this should have been no surprise. First, the ruling Coalition of the Radical Left, or Syriza party, is ruling because it has an understanding of the Greek mood. Second, the constant scorn and contempt that the European leadership heaped on the prime minister and finance minister convinced the Greeks not only that the scorn was meant for them as well, but also that anyone so despised by the European leadership wasn’t all bad. Finally, and most important, the European leadership put the Greek voters in a position in which they had nothing to lose. The Greeks were left to choose between two forms of devastation — one that was immediate but possible to recover from, and one that was a longer-term strangulation with no exit.

The Europeans’ Mistaken Reasoning

As the International Monetary Fund noted (while maintaining a very hard line on Greece), the Greeks cannot repay their loans or escape from their economic nightmare without a substantial restructuring of the Greek debt, including significant debt forgiveness and a willingness to create a multidecade solution. The IMF also made clear that increased austerity, apart from posing an impossible burden for the Greeks, will actually retard either a Greek recovery or debt repayment.

The Greeks knew this as well. What was obvious is that austerity without radical restructuring would inevitably lead to default, if not now, then somewhere not too far down the line. Focusing on pensions made the Europeans appear tough but was actually quite foolish. All of the austerity measures demanded would not have provided nearly enough money to repay debts without restructuring. In due course, Greece would default, or the debt would be restructured.

Since Europe’s leaders are not stupid, it is important to understand the game they were playing. They knew perfectly well the austerity measures were between irrelevant and damaging to debt repayment. They insisted on this battle at this time because they thought they would win it, and it was important for them to get Greece to capitulate for broader reasons.

No other EU country is in a condition as bad as Greece’s. However, a number of EU countries, particularly in Southern Europe, carry a debt burden they would like to renegotiate. They are doing better than Greece this year, but with persistent high unemployment — for example, 22.5 percent in Spain as of May — two things are not clear: first, what shape these countries will be in next year or the year after that, and second, what governments would come into office, and what the new governments’ positions would be. Greece accounts for less than 2 percent of the European Union’s gross domestic product. Italy and Spain are far more important. The problem of restructuring debt is once it is done for one country, others will want to restructure as well. The European Union did not want to set any precedents for future crises or anti-EU governments.

In Greece, Europe’s leaders had a crisis and a hostile government. It was the perfect place to take a stand, they thought. They became inflexible on debt restructuring, demanding prior increased austerity measures in a country where unemployment exceeded 25 percent and youth unemployment was over 50 percent. The EU strategy in the past had been psychological: spreading fear about what default might mean, spreading fear of the consequences of leaving the eurozone and arguing that it was the European Union that lacked the ability to make concessions. In the past, the EU strategy had been to make agreements that it never thought the Greeks would be able to keep in order to kick the problem down the road. Europe’s leaders demanded austerity measures but tied them to postponing repayments. They expected Greece to continue playing the game. They did not realize, for some reason, that Syriza came to power on a pledge to end the game. They thought that under pressure, the party would fold.

But Syriza couldn’t fold, and not just for political reasons. If Syriza betrayed its election pledge, as the European leadership was sure it would, the party would split and a new anti-European party would form in Greece. But on a deeper level, the Greeks simply could not give any more. With their economy in shambles and Europe insisting that the solution was not stimulus but austerity — an increasingly dubious claim — the Greeks were at the point where default, and the short-term wrenching crisis that would ensue, would be worth the price.

The European leaders miscalculated. They thought Greece could be more flexible, and they wanted to demonstrate to any other country or party that might consider a similar maneuver in the future just what the cost would be. The Europeans feared the moral risk of compromising with the Greeks. They created a more dangerous situation for themselves.

New Threats to the European Union

First, in its treatment of Greece, the European Union has driven home — particularly to rising Euroskeptic parties — that it is merely a treaty organization and in no way a confederation, let alone a federation. Europe was a union so long as a member didn’t get into trouble. As I have said, the Greeks were irresponsible borrowing money. But the rest of Europe was irresponsible in lending it. Indeed, the banks that lent the money knew perfectly well the condition Greece was in. The idea that the Greeks pulled the wool over the bankers’ eyes is nonsense. The bankers wanted to make the loans because they made money off of transactions. Plus, European institutions that bought the loans from them bailed out those that made the loans. The people who made the loans sold them to third parties, and the third parties sold them to EU institutions. As for the Greeks, it was not the current government or the public that borrowed the money. And so the tale will help parties like Podemos in Spain and UKIP in the United Kingdom make the case against the European Union. The European Union appears both protective of banks and predatory to those who didn’t actually borrow.

Second, having played hardball, the Europeans must either continue the game, incurring the criticism discussed above, or offer a compromise they wouldn’t offer prior to the Greek vote. One would lead to a view of the European Union as a potential enemy of nations that fall on hard times, while the latter would cost the bloc credibility in showdowns to come. It is likely that the Europeans will continue discussions with Greece, but they will be playing with a much weaker hand. The Greek voters have, in effect, called their bluff.

It is interesting how the European leaders maneuvered themselves into this position. Part of it was that they could not imagine the Greek government not yielding to the European Union, Germany and the rest. Part of it was that they could not imagine the Greeks not understanding what default would mean to them.

The European leaders did not take the Greeks’ considerations seriously. For the Greeks, there were two issues. The first issue was how they would be more likely to get the deal they needed. It was not by begging but by convincing the Europeans they were ready to walk — a tactic anyone who has bargained in the eastern Mediterranean knows. Second, as any good bargainer knows, it is necessary to be prepared to walk and not simply bluff it. Syriza campaigned on the idea that Greece would not leave the eurozone but that the government would use a “no” vote on the referendum to negotiate a better deal with EU leaders. However, all political campaigns are subject to geopolitical realities, and Syriza needed all options on the table.

The EU leadership was convinced that the Greeks were bluffing, while the Greeks knew that with the stakes this high, they could not afford to bluff. But the Greeks also knew, from watching other countries, that while default would create a massive short-term liquidity crisis in Greece, with currency controls and a new currency under the control of the Greek government, it would be possible to move beyond the crisis before the sense of embattlement dissolves. Many countries do better in short, intense crises than they do in ordinary times. The Greeks repelled an Italian invasion in October 1940, and the Germans didn’t complete their conquest until May 1941. I have no idea what Greece’s short-term ability to rally is today, but Syriza is willing to bet on it.

Greece’s Options in Case of a Grexit

If Greece withdraws from the European Union, its impact on the euro will be trivial. There are those who claim that it would be catastrophic to the euro, but I don’t see why. What might be extremely dangerous is leaving the euro and surviving, if not flourishing. The Greeks are currently fixated on the European Union as a source of money, and there is an assumption that they will be forced out of the global financial markets if they default. But that isn’t obvious.

Greece has three alternative sources of money. The first is Russia. The Greeks and the Russians have had a relationship going back to at least the 1970s. It was quite irritating for the United States and Europe. It was quite real. Now the Russians are looking for leverage to use against the Europeans and Americans. The Russians are having hard times but not as hard as a couple of months ago, and Greece is a strategic prize. The Greeks and the Russians have talked and the results of the talks are murky. The BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) summit began July 6 in Russia, and the Greeks are sitting in as observers — and possibly angling for some sort of deal. Publicly, Russia has said it will not give a direct loan to Greece but will take advantage of the crisis to acquire hard assets in Greece and a commitment on the Turkish Stream pipeline project. However, bailing out Greece would give Russia a golden opportunity to put a spoke in NATO operations and reassert itself somewhere other than Ukraine. In Central Europe, the view is that Russia and Greece have had an understanding for several months about a bailout, which could be why the Greeks have acted with such bravado.

Another, though less likely, source of funds for Greece is China and some of its partners. The Chinese are trying to position themselves as a genuine global power, without a global military and with a weakening economy. Working alone or with others to help the Greeks would not be a foolish move on their part, given that it would certainly create regional influence at a relative low cost — mere tens of billions. However, it could come with the political cost of alienating a large portion of the European Union, making Chinese assistance a slight possibility.

Finally, there are American hedge funds and private equity firms. They are cash-rich because of European, Chinese and Middle Eastern money searching for safety and are facing near-zero percent interest rates. Many of them have taken wilder risks than this. The U.S. government might not discourage them, either, because it would be far more concerned about Russian or Chinese influence — and navies — in the eastern Mediterranean.

Having shed its debt to Europe and weathered the genuinely difficult months after default, Greece might be an interesting investment opportunity. We know from Argentina that when a country defaults, a wall is not created around it. Greece has value and, absent the debt, it is a high-risk but attractive investment.

The European leaders have therefore backed themselves into the corner they didn’t want. If they hold their position, then they open the door to the idea that there is life after the European Union, and that is the one thought the EU leaders do not want validated. Therefore, it is likely that the Europeans, having discovered that Syriza is not prepared to submit to European diktat, will now negotiate a deal Greece can accept. But then that is another precedent the European Union didn’t want to set.

Behind all this, the Germans are considering the future of the European Union. They are less concerned about the euro or Greek debt than they are about the free trade zone that absorbs part of their massive exports. With credit controls and default, Greece is one tiny market they lose. The last thing they want is for this to spread, or for Germany to be forced to pay for the privilege of saving it. In many ways, therefore, our eyes should shift from Greece to Germany. It is at the heart of the EU leadership, and it is going to be calling the next shot — not for the good of the bloc, but for the good of Germany, which is backed into the same corner as the rest of the European Union.
