U.S. Agents Untrained to Vet Islamic Saboteurs, Have Poor Grasp of Radical Islamic Threat

This should come as no surprise. I’ve been warning about this for years: the Obama administration several years ago scrubbed all mention of the jihad doctrine and Islam from all counter terror training materials. Jihadists associated with Muslim Brotherhood groups such as CAIR were called in to “train” law enforcement to submit to sharia restrictions on speech.

This is the poison fruit of that policy: agents who have no idea of what they’re dealing with when they encounter jihad terrorists.

“US agents untrained to vet Islamic radicals, have poor grasp of jihadist threat, experts warn,” RT, March 7, 2018 (thanks to Graham):

US law enforcers aren’t trained to detect Islamic radicals, which enabled a suspected Al-Qaeda-linked jihadist to remain off the radar in America for seven years, attorney Jennifer Breedon told RT.

Saudi national, Naif Abdulaziz Alfallaj, who trained at the Al-Qaeda camp in Afghanistan together with some of the 9/11 plane hijackers, was detained in Oklahoma in February. He arrived in the US on a non-immigrant visa back in 2011 and lived freely in the country, even taking pilot lessons. It took the US security agencies a whole seven years to match the fingerprints from Al-Qaeda papers obtained in Afghanistan in 2011 with the prints in its database and reveal Alfallaj’s true identity. The man now faces up to 20 years in prison for two counts of visa fraud and lying to the FBI about his terrorist links.

Breedon, an attorney specializing in foreign policy, international law and religious terrorism, believes that the Alfallaj affair shows “an ongoing failure of the US – and also Europe – to properly vet these people and for our law enforcement to even understand the nature of radical Islamists.”

“Why this person was able to go under the radar; why he went all the way through the State Department vetting process – because there’s no vetting process that vets for extremist religious ideology,” she said. According to the attorney, the employees of the relevant US agencies “haven’t been properly trained” and are unaware of the most basic things, like who the Wahhabis are and what Sharia Law is.

“It’s very likely that [Alfallaj] didn’t even have to try hard to deceive” the US authorities, Breedon said. “The State Department is asking questions and they’re expecting an honest answer. And these people, especially, if they have terrorist ties or connections, are never going to be honest on a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questionnaire… If we don’t know how to read between the lines or truly understand their ideology we’ll continue to not catch these people.”

The jihadists are able to freely come and stay in the US unhampered because “the FBI has many problems right now,” Breedon said. “The FBI has been too busy with trying to harm President Donald Trump… or trying to go after these supposed Russian hackers. You have the FBI spending… millions of dollars for the special investigation into these things the American people don’t care about, so it’s very likely that something as important as allowing a terrorist to get a US visa would fall under the rug.”

Another unhelpful thing is the Western model of “we can’t offend anybody,” Breedon believes. In 2016, when Omar Mateen killed 49 people and injured 58 others at an Orlando gay club, “the FBI had ample warning that the Orlando attacker was a threat, but because he was Muslim they didn’t want to look into it; they didn’t want to be seen as targeting a certain religious group – and because of that lots of people died.”

Breedon also refuted the FBI’s claims that it needs more funding to be effective, reminding that “reports have come out with school shootings in the US where the FBI many times received a phone call warning them about these shooters and… the FBI didn’t follow up. It’s not so much a lack of resources as it is a lack of knowledge and understanding about threats that matter the most,” she said….

FBI to Judge: Dismiss lawsuit before the public learns details about the ISIS attack in Texas

The Judge could grant dismissal of the lawsuit. So it is pointless to ask about our alleged role in the jihad attack, says the Federal Bureau of Investigation in its own defense, through its mouthpiece, the Department of Justice.

But the FBI failed to state a court rule, statute or “good cause” to prevent all discovery, responds the Plaintiff.

This lawsuit’s allegations are detailed in a previous article on the Geller Report here.1

Arguments concern whether to immediately conduct discovery – interrogatories, requests to produce, depositions, etc. – concurrent with a pending Motion to Dismiss. The following are excerpts of the USA / FBI’s Motion 2 and Memorandum [DM/pg];3 Plaintiff’s Response [PR/pg];4 and the USA / FBI’s Reply [DR/pg].5

USA / FBI’s Motion for Relief

The Motion seeks “to relieve the parties from the reporting requirements set forth in the Court’s order dated January 16, 2018…, to abstain from entering a scheduling order, and for a stay of discovery while the United States’ motion to dismiss … is pending.”

USA / FBI’s Memorandum    

“Plaintiff alleges that he was shot in the leg while working as a security guard at an event called the ‘First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest’ at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas on May 3, 2015 (‘the event’). The shooting occurred when Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, whom Plaintiff describes as ‘two members of the international terrorist organization ISIS,’ attempted to carry out a mass-shooting at the event.” [DM/1-2]

“[A]s a practical matter, it is especially difficult (and unnecessary) at this juncture for case management deadlines to be set, given that the parties’ briefing on the sovereign immunity issue is not yet complete and it is thus unknown when the issue will be resolved … If the motion [to dismiss] is granted, then the need for a scheduling order will no longer exist. Alternatively, if the motion is denied or granted in part, this Court’s ruling may reduce the number of claims and narrow the scope of discovery.” [DM/4]

“Staying discovery in this action while the motion to dismiss is pending is more than simply appropriate – it is necessary to preserve the United States’ sovereign immunity.” [DM/5]

“A stay of discovery is especially justified here given the nature of the information likely to be sought during discovery by Plaintiff. On its face, the Complaint makes clear that it challenges alleged Government conduct [the FBI] taken during the course of a national security counterterrorism investigation. As such, there is a strong likelihood that much of the information Plaintiff will seek from the FBI is classified and law enforcement sensitive information over which the Government will assert claims of privilege to prevent its disclosure. To be sure, in pending federal criminal proceedings related to the events at issue in this case, the Government continues to protect such information from disclosure.” [DM/6-7]

The counter-terrorism investigation, particularly concerning the jihad attack here, has resulted in criminal proceedings against three defendants: (1) Erick Jamal Hendricks, who will be tried in March, 2018;6 (2) Abdul Khabir Wahid, who will be tried in May, 2018;7 and (3) Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem, who was convicted in February, 2017, but he has a pending appeal.8

Plaintiff’s Response

“The purpose of pre-dismissal discovery is to find factual support for a plaintiff’s argument that the conduct at issue is not discretionary, and thus not covered by the discretionary function exception.” [PR/7, fn1]

“If Congress had intended for a stay on discovery to be imposed anytime Defendant raises the discretionary function exception in a motion to dismiss, then some federal rule [of court procedure] or statute would say so.” [PR/8]

“Given that no Scheduling Conference has even been held, and no discovery requests have even been sent, Defendant’s Motion to Stay is premature–as it cannot yet determine whether it will suffer ‘annoyance, embarrassment, oppression, or undue burden or expense’ by proceeding as usual. If Defendant receives specific discovery requests that are oppressive or pose an undue burden to respond to–then Defendant can object to those particular requests. Defendant is also free to invoke privilege when any information requested by Plaintiff is subject to privilege. But insisting on a blanket stay of all discovery–when no good cause has been definitively demonstrated–goes too far. Defendant has not met its ‘heavy burden’ and demonstrated good cause to sidestep the general rule in favor of discovery.” [PR/5-6]

“Even if the Court were to find some merit in Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss, Plaintiff would likely be allowed an opportunity to amend its pleadings to cure any defects.” [PR/6]

USA / FBI’s Reply

“The burden of going through the painstaking process of reviewing such materials in response to a discovery request is, quite frankly, self-evident. Placing such a burden on the FBI, which already bears a heavy workload dealing with discovery in numerous legal actions throughout the country as well as Congressional requests, is the very sort of intrusion into sovereign immunity that should be avoided until the threshold legal issues are decided.” [DR/2].

U.S. Taxpayers are owed explanations for the FBI’s alleged action or inaction

What do the majority of mass shootings have in common? All levels of government, particularly the FBI, apparently did not “connect the dots” and therefore “dropped the ball” to prevent the attacks.

Hypothetical: Entrapment is not a defense when the perpetrator was predisposed to commit the crime. However, consider: Is an undercover law enforcement officer considered a co-conspirator if his words originatethe crime, and his acts contribute to the crime?

As this Complaint alleges:

“[On] (May 2, 2015), Hendricks and UCE-1 again chatted online about the upcoming Garland event. Hendricks wrote, ‘I wish someone could go to tx and harass them during the night;’ ‘a good solid protest;’ and ‘Unique one man protest.’ After Hendricks explained that he was unable to go because he was on the no-fly list and it was ‘too much driving,’ UCE-1 then volunteered to go. UCE-1 then asked, ‘Just me or any other brothers?’ Hendricks responded, ‘See what you and bro [Simpson] can do,’ and added that Simpson ‘has another brother he knows’ (presumably Soofi). Hendricks then provided ICE-1 with Simpson’s alternate Twitter contact.” [Complaint ¶ 34].

Assume the above is true and consider: But-for the FBI’s undercover agent effectively having “green-lighted” the attack, and offered himself to go and facilitate it, would there have been a jihad attack in Garland, Texas? If not, then Plaintiff – a security guard – would not have been shot, and suffer emotional distress.

President Obama did more than seek to protect Islam as a minority religion in the United States. His words and deeds advocated for, and promoted, Islam.

The Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, are under the Executive branch. The FBI ostensibly has provided briefings to the President. Using every scandal’s inquiry: What did President Obama know, and when did he know it?

Angela Merkel admits that ‘no-go zones’ exist in Germany

How times have changed. It wasn’t very long ago at all that anyone who noted the obvious existence of no-go zones in Europe was excoriated as a racist, bigoted “islamophobe,” and denounced by the highest authorities. The Mayor of Paris even threatened to sue Fox News for reporting on no-go zones.

In Germany, Merkel is more responsible than anyone else for the creation of these “no go zones,” and by admitting that they exist is simply trying to co-opt the growing and increasingly vocal opposition to her suicidal immigration policies. She did this before, calling for limitations on immigration just before the last election in Germany. But she is the one who got Germany into this fix. She won’t be the one to get Germany out of it.

“Angela Merkel admits that ‘no-go zones’ exist in Germany,” by Adam Shaw, Fox News, March 1, 2018 (thanks to Lukasz):

German Chancellor Angela Merkel made a major concession to Europe’s populist movement this week when she admitted the existence of so-called “no-go zones” in Germany.

Conservatives and populists have long warned of the existence of such zones as the partial consequence of mass Muslim migration from the Middle East and Africa, particularly after Merkel opened Germany’s borders in 2015 as a response to the Syrian refugee crisis. Such areas are said to be dogged by high-levels of crime and are described as “no-go zones” because outsiders, including police and other authorities, are unable to enter.

Despite evidence of the existence of areas in Western countries, European leaders and left-wing media commentators have long denied, and sometimes even mocked, those who claim that no-go zones exist.

But Merkel, who won Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” in 2015 in part because of her open-borders stance, mentioned their existence in an interview this week with German broadcaster n-tv as she called for a zero-tolerance policy on crime.

She said that people have a right to feel safe when they meet in public places. When asked to clarify, she specified that she was talking about no-go zones.

“It means for example that there cannot be any no-go areas, that there cannot be areas where no-one dares to go but there are such places,” she said. “One has to call them by name and do something about it.”

The Associated Press reported that it had left fellow lawmakers “speechless.” The remarks quickly spread across Europe, fueling and encouraging nationalist-populist politicians who have pushed back against lax immigration policies.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s government, which has been under siege from the European Union for its hardline stance on asylum seekers, hailed Merkel’s comments as a victory.

“Today, it seems this taboo has been broken. Guess who is talking about ‘no-go zones’?” a blog post on the Hungarian government’s official website said.

“That we’re finally calling them by name signals a step in the right direction,” it said….

Muslim rape gangs expanding activities, now preying on children in public parks

Police announced that arrests have been made in connection with an investigation into child sex exploitation (CSE) gangs targeting “vulnerable, underage” girls in Bury parks.

The Muslim rape gangs continue expanding their activities, despite widespread publicity and vows from authorities to stop them. Already up to a million girls have been abused.

The arrests come after similar scandals in the neighbouring borough of Rochdale, which involved networks of mostly Pakistani-origin men targeting overwhelmingly white, non-Muslim girls for sexual abuse and exploitation.

Muslim rape gang sex crimes against children are now at a “record high,” averaging 177 cases per day.

Despite the sickening abuse of innocent girls, appeaser Theresa May intends to keep the doors to immigration open wide even after Brexit, in obedience to the self-destructive European Union.

It is unconscionable that reckless government leaders have no interest in the well-being of their own citizens.

“Police Announce Probe into Grooming Gangs Preying on Children in Parks,” by Virginia Hale, Breitbart, March 2, 2018:

Police announced that arrests have been made in connection with an investigation into child sex exploitation (CSE) gangs targeting “vulnerable, underage” girls in Bury parks.
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said the case — codenamed Burgos — has been underway since June last year when officers received reports that children around Clarence Park and Openshaw Park were being plied with alcohol and drugs then sexually abused by groups of men.

According to the Bury Times, officers made the announcement in order to “reassure the public” after reports on social media accused authorities in the borough of covering up the exploitation of up to 50 children.

A spokesman for Bury Council said authorities in the town “are currently working with nine young people under Operation Burgos following the police’s investigation.

“We have support in place for those affected and will await the outcomes of police investigations,” he added.

While police declined to give any details on how many arrests were made and what for, Superintendent Rick Jackson said: “Tackling child sexual exploitation is a priority for GMP and we will continue to work closely with our partners to safeguard children and prosecute offenders.”

The arrests come after similar scandals in the neighbouring borough of Rochdale, which involved networks of mostly Pakistani-origin men targeting overwhelmingly white, non-Muslim girls for sexual abuse and exploitation…..

Muslims slaughter 12 Christians for trying to protect girls from forced conversion to Islam

The Qur’an says “There is no compulsion in religion” (2:256). However, what constitutes “compulsion” is in the eye of the beholder. The institutionalized subjugation of the dhimma, with its regular humiliation and harassment, from which one can be freed for the simple price of converting to Islam, is not considered compulsion. Remember Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig, the journalists who were kidnapped and forced to convert to Islam — even though their conversions were obviously coerced, their captors made them say that they were converting freely, and the captors probably believed that themselves. After all, the journos could have chosen to be killed instead.

“12 Christians Murdered in Nigeria for Trying to Protect Girls From Forced Islamic Conversions,” by Stoyan Zaimov, Christian Post, March 1, 2018:

At least 12 Christians have been killed and another 20 injured in Kasuwan Magani in northern Nigeria in retaliation for believers’ attempts to rescue Christian girls from forced Islamic conversions.

Morning Star News reported on Tuesday that radical Muslims hunted down Christians and burned down their homes after they had attempted to rescue two girls who were kidnapped and forcefully converted to Islam two weeks ago.

“The names of those killed are not readily available to me at the moment, but I can confirm to you that they are Christians killed in the Christian area of the town,” said James Madaki of the Evangelical Church Winning All.

The victims also included members of Pentecostal, Baptist, Assemblies of God and Seventh-day Adventist churches in the town.

“The case was reported to the police, and the girls were not rescued, so some Christians decided to rescue the girls, but the Muslims in the town attacked them,” Madaki explained.

“The Muslims did not just attack the Christians that went to rescue the girls, but also went around town attacking Christians they sighted and burned houses belonging to Christians.”

Omega Funom, another Kasuwan Magani resident, confirmed that the violence came as a result of the girls’ kidnapping.

“This is the practice by Muslims in Kaduna state. They abduct small Christian girls and force them to become Muslims, and when Christians reject this, they attack them to create the impression that there’s a religious crisis,” Funom said, adding that the Muslims were armed with AK-47 guns….

Catholic Church sets out a vision for closer ties with Islam

Had Charles Martel and the Franks lost their battle against the jihadis at Tours in 732, the eighteenth-century English historian Edward Gibbon envisioned the continent’s complete Islamization:

A victorious line of march had been prolonged above a thousand miles from the rock of Gibraltar to the banks of the Loire; the repetition of an equal space would have carried the Saracens to the confines of Poland and the Highlands of Scotland; the Rhine is not more impassable than the Nile or Euphrates, and the Arabian fleet might have sailed without a naval combat into the mouth of the Thames. Perhaps the interpretation of the Koran would now be taught in the schools of Oxford, and her pulpits might demonstrate to a circumcised people the sanctity and truth of the revelation of Mahomet.

And now here we are: the jihadis lost at Tours, but their defeat was not complete, and now victory is at hand: “the interpretation of the Koran” is now “taught in the schools of Oxford,” or at least at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies. Is there a Center for Christian Studies at al-Azhar? Of course not. Has any Islamic entity ever sought improved ties with the Catholic Church? Don’t be silly.

“Dialogue” and interfaith outreach always and in every case go only one way, with fond Christians such as Vincent Nichols appealing for peace and friendship to Muslim leaders, who use the resulting “dialogue” to silence Christians who are talking about Muslim persecution of Christians and the Qur’an’s teaching regarding Christianity, and to engage in subtle dawah, Islamic proselytizing, with the participating Christians, and in any documents resulting from the “dialogue.”

So Vincent Nichols is pictured here planting a tree at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, but that isn’t the only hole he is digging.

“Leave them; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 15:14)

“Catholic Church sets out a vision for closer ties with Islam,” by Michael Binyon, The Times, March 3, 2018 (thanks to David):

How can dialogue between faiths lead to a deeper spiritual understanding? Is there not always a danger that both sides will talk across each other without listening or just agree on the bare minimum they have in common?

These questions were raised this week by Cardinal Vincent Nichols, the Archbishop of Westminster, when he made the first visit by the head of the Roman Catholic Church in Britain to the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, the dazzling new college that aims to become the country’s principal centre for the academic study of Islam.

He said that dialogue between faith and society would be “significantly impoverished” if dialogue between faiths were characterised by suspicion and hostility or were simply non-existent….

Muslim gang repeatedly raped teen girl over two-year period, police did nothing

“The prosecutor described how nothing was done by police until years later when the victim rang the television studio.”

The police who turned this girl away and did nothing about her allegations were no doubt afraid of being accused of being “racist” and “Islamophobic” if they arrested the members of this Muslim rape gang. But the fault doesn’t lie with them. They’re just low-level functionaries. The fault lies with those who created the society-wide impression that it was more important not to appear “Islamophobic” than to bring justice to these girls. Those include Theresa May and others in the British government, and Leftist activists including Nick Lowles and Fiyaz Mughal, who repeatedly charged those who were calling attention to the Muslim rape gangs with “racism.” If Britain were a sane society, which it most decidedly isn’t, these people would be recognized for the traitors they are, removed from all positions of responsibility and influence, and prosecuted where possible.

“Teenage girl ‘raped by a gang of Asian men during two-year ordeal was finally treated as a victim when her boyfriend phoned TV news studio after she saw report on Rotherham abuse scandal,’” by Abe Hawken, Mailonline, February 27, 2018:

A 16-year-old girl was raped by a gang of Asian men who were finally arrested when her partner phoned a TV news studio after she watched a report on sex abuse, a court heard today.

The girl, who was allegedly abused over a two-year period, asked her partner to call the BBC Look North studio in Yorkshire after viewing their piece which related to the Rotherham sex abuse scandal.

She was a resident of a care home after having a turbulent upbringing when the alleged sexual abuse started, Bradford Crown Court was told.

A jury was told that the girl later ran away from the home with a friend and a bottle of vodka and the pair headed towards the city centre.

The prosecution allege one of the men approached two girls in a car and offered to take them to buy a lighter in 2008, just months after they had both been placed into the care home.

In the months that followed, the girls were subjected to a range of sexual abuse at the hands of the ten men through a variety of different methods ‘to satisfy their sexual desires’, the court was told.

The men subsequently arrested deny a total of 25 charges including rape and sexual assault against the same alleged victim over the period of July 2009 to July 2011.

One of the group, Basharat Khaliq, 37, also allegedly raped a friend of the main victim, who the whole gang are accused of sexually abusing….

One of the charges of rape against him refers to a situation where the girl, who would call the defendant ‘Bash’, was allegedly raped in the front seat of a car.

The court heard how workers at the care home – where both girls lived – had concerns about where they were when they would repeatedly run away – but because it was not a restrictive unit they had no power to stop the teens.

Both girls who had been approached by Khaliq in 2008 were allegedly left on Baildon Moor by the defendant in 2009.

The prosecution said ‘a male was contacted by [the victim] who collected her’. This defendant was Saeed Akhtar, known as ‘Sid’, the prosecution allege.

The property in which much of the abuse is alleged to have taken place is the house in which he lived.

The court was told the second victim was passed between men and repeatedly told she was in a relationship with them in order to cover the abuse.

The prosecutor said the girl was ‘cynically manipulated’ by the defendants, who each visited the house during ‘parties’ which involved drugs and alcohol.

On one occasion, the prosecutor detailed how the victim had taken 22 lines of cocaine in a single night and once addicted to the drug ‘was easy to control’….

The original operation investigated sexual exploitation in Keighley, West Yorkshire.

She said: ‘When girls or suspects were found police were given the task of finding them. On July 13 [the victim’s] phone number cropped up.

‘Her phone number was found on a piece of paper and police contacted her.

‘[The victim] could not give relevant information to the operation; however, she explained her own experience of growing up.

‘She told them she had been given alcohol and drugs and had become an addict. She said she was pleased to see they were investigating.’

The prosecutor described how nothing was done by police until years later when the victim rang the television studio.

She said: ‘By then there was much more coverage of Rotherham. [The victim] had watched and seen news reports knowing what had happened to her.

‘Frustrated at the lack of coverage… her partner contacted Look North, telling them the abuse was ‘much wider than Rotherham’.’…

Khaliq, 37, of Bradford, denies one charge of assault by penetration against the first alleged victim and five charges of rape against a second woman.

Saeed Akhtar, 54, of Bradford, denies two charges of causing or inciting child prostitution and one charge of rape.

Naveed Akhtar, 42, and Izar Hussain, 31, both of Bradford, deny three charges of rape, with Hussain also denying an additional allegation of attempted rape.

Mohammed Usman, 30, of Bradford, and Kieran Harris, 27, of Dewsbury, both pleaded not guilty to two charges of rape.

Yasar Majid, 36, of Milton Keynes, denies a single charge of rape, and Fahim Iqbal, 26, of no fixed abode, pleaded not guilty to aiding and abetting rape.

Zeeshan Ali, 31, of Bradford, denies a single charge of sexual assault.

Parvaze Ahmed, 35, of Bradford, denies three charges of rape….

Journalist: The Swedish government has betrayed its girls and women in appeasing Muslim migrants

“The study shows that more than 95 percent of assault violence in Sweden is committed by men of foreign descent.”

And yet instead of naming and prosecuting these men, Swedish authorities devote their efforts to covering this up. The Swedish government has betrayed its people. Yet the people for the most part don’t yet seem to have noticed.

Katerina Janouch

“The state should be sentenced for violation of the Istanbul Convention: A betrayal of Sweden’s girls and women,” translated from “Staten bör ställas till svars för brott mot Istanbulkonventionen: Ett svek mot Sveriges flickor och kvinnor,” by Katerina Janouch, February 25, 2018:

The Swedish state violates the Istanbul Convention, which Sweden signed in 2011, and which came into force in 2014. According to the Istanbul Convention (Article 5.2.), States that accede to the Convention have a responsibility to take the necessary legislative and other measures to prevent, investigate, punish and prosecute violent acts covered by the Convention and committed by non-state actors. As it is now, this does not happen in Sweden. Instead, the sharp increase in crime and sexual offenses causes enormous suffering for the country’s girls and women, and threatens the entire life and health of the Swedish population. Additionally, honor-related violence is increasing. Sweden has failed to protect those whom they undertook to protect. Therefore, they must be held responsible.

“Migrants threaten European women’s rights.” The statement is from the Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico, as Slovakia recently refused to sign the Istanbul Convention, which is a legally binding regional instrument on violence against women in Europe. The reason that Slovakia — together with Bulgaria — chooses not to sign the Convention is believed to be regarded as that it is too influenced by appeals that contradict the countries’ more conservative views on, for example, marriage. “All violence against women is unacceptable and has no place in our society,” said Fico. He added that the defense of women’s rights is “particularly important at a time when migrants constitute an increasing part of Europe’s population” and “hold the view of the woman as a ‘submissive creature.’”

Fico’s statement is interesting in several different ways. It also sheds light on Sweden’s so-called feminist government — which signed the Istanbul Convention on the same day it became available for signing — in 2011. In 2014, the convention came into force in Sweden.

So let’s see what the convention means — and whether it is followed in Sweden. The official name of the Istanbul Convention is the Council of Europe Convention on the Prevention and Control of Violence against Women and Violence at Home.

* The Convention condemns all forms of violence and describes violence against women as an expression of historically unequal power relations between women and men.

* It establishes that violence against women is gender-related at the structural level. The convention states that women and girls risk being exposed to gender-related violence and domestic violence to a greater extent than men.

* Prevention of violence against women is described as crucial in order to achieve equality between women and men.

* According to the Istanbul Convention (Article 5.2.), States that accede to the Convention have a responsibility to take the necessary legislative and other measures to prevent, investigate, punish and prosecute acts of violence covered by the Convention committed by non-state actors.

Does this really happen in Sweden? Or are these just some nice words in line with others that are not actually enforced?

* The Istanbul Convention contains both civil and criminal law provisions. Among other things, the states that accede to the Convention agree to criminalize psychological violence (Article 33), stalking (Article 34), physical violence (Article 35), sexual violence, including rape (Article 36), forced marriages (Article 37), genital mutilation (Article 38) and forced abortion and forced sterilization (Article 39).

This is not how the situation actually looks today in Sweden. In our country of the fine feminist government, threats, persecution, victims, harassment, rape and killing of women are threatened on a daily basis. Many perpetrators that are convicted are given ridiculously light punishment. Girls who are harassed at school often get moved, while the perpetrators remain. Girls are beaten and injured in the home. Women are threatened, harassed and injured by both close relatives, but also by strangers, in an increasing number of cases of assault violence. However, states that accede to the Convention are supposed to adopt and implement, at a national level, an effective, comprehensive and coordinated policy to prevent and combat all forms of violence against women and domestic violence (Article 7). The work of NGOs and civil society must be acknowledged, encouraged and supported (Article 9). States shall designate or establish public bodies responsible for coordinating, implementing, monitoring and evaluating policies and measures to prevent and combat violence (Article 10). The States will also regularly collect statistics and support research (Article 11).

But here is what is happening in Sweden. Swedish authorities, with BRÅ at the forefront, refuse to collect statistics about those who commit sexual assault. They are blaming everything else possible, while police and lawyers and crime victims testify that violence originating from criminal immigrants is increasing. In Sweden, we have had group violence not only against girls and women, but also against boys, and sexual violence has become colder; it has even been described as “torture-like” on some occasions. A civilian study of the origin of offenders has, in the absence of another, been made by a private individual. The study shows that more than 95 percent of assault violence in Sweden is committed by men of foreign descent. But society does not take any of this into account. In this way, Sweden is in severe violation of the Istanbul Convention….
