Norway’s Dhimmi-in-Chief

In recent months, those of us who worry about Europe’s ongoing Islamization have been paying more attention than usual to recent elections on the continent. Geert Wilders, in the Netherlands, and Marine le Pen, in France, didn’t win, but at least they made some progress. In September, it’ll be Norway’s turn. Unfortunately, there’s not much of a choice. There are several political parties in Norway, but the likelihood is that we’ll end up with a Labor or Conservative prime minister. The Labor honcho is Jonas Gahr Støre, a globalist empty suit from Central Casting who’s perfectly happy with Islam and high-level immigration. Heading up the Conservatives option is the current Prime Minister, Erna Solberg, whose position on these issues is virtually indistinguishable from Gahr Støre’s. When it comes to Islam, she’s always been a first-class dhimmi. As my friend Peder “Fjordman” Jensen recalled the other day, Erna, back in 2011, “stated that Muslims in Europe are now harassed just like Jews were in the 1930s, during the rise of the Nazis.”

She’s even good at taqiyya: four years ago, she recounted a visit to an Oslo mosque whose members find it “difficult to be accepted in society.” What she failed to mention was that they were Ahmadi Muslims who, as I noted at the time, “are oppressed, persecuted, beaten, and even executed throughout much of the Islamic world, where they’re considered infidels.” Far from having problems being accepted by Norwegians, they’ve found in Norway a refuge from the oppression and violence they endured in their homelands at the hands of mainstream Muslims Islam. But you won’t hear that from Erna, for whom Muslims are always the victims and Norwegians the bad guys.

This past January, I wrote about Erna again – this time focusing on her latest New Year’s Eve speech, in which she praised Norway’s first female, hijab-wearing Somali bus driver. The woman is not the world’s best bus driver or anything like that. Her accomplishment, apparently, is being a female Muslim bus driver. If you’re a Muslim bus driver, all you have to do to win praise from Erna is to drive a bus without steering it onto the sidewalk and plowing down a crowd of infidels.

France: What is the Presidential Campaign Really About?

The French presidential race is the latest election to shake up establishment politics. The Parti Socialiste and Les Républicains, who have been calling the shots for the past forty years, were voted out of the race. The “remainers” are Emmanuel Macron, a clone of Canada’s Prime Minster Justin Trudeau; and Marine Le Pen, whom many believe will not win.

France is a fractured country. As in the US and the UK, the rift is not between the traditional left and right. Instead, it reflects divisions — cultural, social, and economic — that came with globalization and mass migration. A map released by the Ministry of the Interior after the first round of the presidential campaign illustrates the new political scenery.

Blue represents the parts of France where Le Pen heads the list; pink, the areas supporting Macron. The blue areas coincide with old industrial areas, deeply damaged by globalization and industrial relocation. Many blue-collar workers are on welfare; and the antagonism between Muslims and non-Muslims is high. People who voted for Le Pen seem to feel not only that they lost their jobs, but that they are becoming foreigners in their own country.

The areas in pink (Macron), represent the big cities and places where the better jobs are. It also represents the areas where the “upper classes can afford to raise invisible barriers between themselves and the ‘other’, immigrants or minorities,” explains Christophe Guilluy, geographer, and author of Le crépuscule de la France d’en haut (The Twilight of Elite France).

Unbowed Le Pen looks ahead to parliamentary elections

Far-right leader Marine Le Pen lost her bid to become France’s first female chief of state, but she was unbowed, looking instead to the next battle: parliamentary elections next month.

Le Pen’s loss to centrist Emmanuel Macron still gave her a historic number of votes, reflecting the changing image of her once-pariah National Front party from fringe force to a political heavyweight.

Always a fighter defying the odds, the ambitious Le Pen set a new challenge for herself in the weeks ahead: “a profound reformation of our movement to constitute a new political force.”

The National Front’s interim president, named while Le Pen campaigned for Sunday’s runoff, said the changes include giving the party a new name.

“It’s opening the doors of the movement to other personalities,” Steeve Briois told The Associated Press.

France: A Guide to the Presidential Elections

Voters in France will go to the polls on April 23 to choose the country’s next president in a two-step process. The top two winners in the first round will compete in a run-off on May 7.

The election is being closely followed in France and elsewhere as an indicator of popular discontent with mainstream parties and the European Union, as well as with multiculturalism and continued mass migration from the Muslim world.

If the election were held today, independent centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron, who has never held elected office, would become the next president of France, according to most opinion polls.

An Ifop-Fiducial poll released on April 21 showed that Macron would win the first round with 24.5% of the votes, followed by Marine Le Pen, the leader of the anti-establishment National Front party, with 22.5%. Conservative François Fillon is third (19.5%), followed by Leftist firebrand Jean-Luc Mélenchon (18.5%) and radical Socialist Benoît Hamon (7%).

If the poll numbers are accurate, the two established parties, the Socialist Party and the center-right Republicans, would, for the first time, be eliminated in the first round.

In the second round, Macron, a pro-EU, pro-Islam globalist, would defeat Le Pen, an anti-EU, anti-Islam French nationalist, by a wide margin (61% to 39%), according to the poll.

Marine Le Pen’s Muslim Slaughter Ban Targets Kosher Meat, Too

While campaigning at a meat market near Paris, Marine Le Pen, the right-wing candidate in the ongoing French presidential elections, announced that, if elected, she would ban ritual slaughtering of animals. This announcement caused even more concern about the presidential candidate, whose anti-Muslim platform will also harm Jews.

“Slaughter without stunning, I’m sorry, it should have special labels,” Le Pen said. “Furthermore, I think that slaughter without stunning should be prohibited.”

Le Pen is running on an anti-immigration platform, which is increasingly popular in a terror-stricken France. This new measure is intended to target Halal slaughtering for religious Muslims but like many of the anti-Muslim measures Le Pen advocates, this will also harm Jews. The laws of halal and kosher slaughtering are similar, both requiring the animal to be fully conscious before being slaughtered.

Ritual slaughter is prohibited in several European countries, ostensibly for reasons of animal cruelty. This type of ban has historically been used as an anti-Semitic subterfuge, most notably in pre-war Germany and Poland.

Which Way Will France Go?

It was a sort of farewell to the army. During a brief visit to the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle last December, French President François Hollande honored the French soldiers involved in “Operation Chammal” against the Islamic State. After two years and 238 deaths at the hands of Islamic terrorism, what did France do to defeat radical Islam? Almost nothing.

It is this legacy of indifference that is at stake in the looming French presidential elections. If Marine Le Pen or François Fillon win, it means that France has rejected this autocratic legacy and wants to try a different, braver way. If Emmanuel Macron wins, France as we have known it can be considered pretty much over. Macron is, for example, against taking away French nationality from jihadists. Terrorism, Islam and security are almost absent from Macron’s vocabulary and platform, and he is in favor of lowering France’s state of emergency. By blaming “colonialism” for French troubles in the Arab world, and calling it “a crime against humanity“, he has effectively legitimized Muslim extremist violence against the French Republic.

As General Vincent Desportes wrote in his new book, La dernière Bataille de France (“The Last Battle of France”):

“President Hollande said on November 15 that it would be ruthless, we were at war … but we do not make war! History shows that in the eternal struggle between the shield and the sword, the sword is still a step forward and winning”.

In the past two years, France only used the shield.

The Telegraph – Brexit Bulletin

Good afternoon.

Pollsters haven’t had a good reputation as of late, but they can breathe a sigh of momentary relief after Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen made it into the second (and final) round of France’s presidential election.

Mr Macron, an independent centrist ( and amateur philosopher), came top with 23.9 per cent of the vote, while his far-Right rival came just behind with 21.4 per cent. His supporters will be pleased that she didn’t perform any better given that recent events have fallen in her favour. Britain’s vote for Brexit and the election of President Trump was expected to boost her populist appeal, while the recent attack on the Champs-Élysées in Paris just days ensured voters had security high in their mind. Mr Macron showed his delight at his win by inviting his supporters, including a string of Parisian celebrities, to a glitzy restaurant.

European leaders were there in spirit with him. Jean-Claude Juncker congratulated Mr Macron on his victory and wished him well in his battle against Le Pen, who he said sought the “destruction” of the bloc. Europe will remain a fiercely debated issue over the next few days, with Le Pen dubbing her rival – who polls currently say will easily win – a “hysterical, radical Europeanist”. Our Europe editor Peter Foster has explored why President Macron would be bad news for Theresa May given his promise to drive a hard bargain over Brexit.

Europe’s elite is busy congratulating Mr Macron but it’s worth bearing in mind that he has yet to be elected President. He still has two more weeks to go, with a head-to-head debate planned in the next few days. The pollsters got the first round of the French presidency right, but the Brexit and Trump votes showed that a lot can change in the final few days of a campaign when voters focus on the detail.
