Islamic State calls for jihad massacres in Paris, poster shows Eiffel Tower in flames

Even if none of this happens, although there is little or nothing to prevent it, the issuance of the threat is an end in itself, as it serves to “strike terror in the enemies of Allah” (Qur’an 8:60).

“ISIS fanatics call for lone wolf attacks in Paris in poster showing the Eiffel Tower up in flames,” by Sara Malm, MailOnline, February 15, 2019:

ISIS fanatics are calling for so-called ‘lone wolf’ attacks to be carried out in France, using a digitally manipulated image of the Eiffel Tower in Paris going up in flames.

It also shows the black and white flag of the Islamic State flying from the iconic landmark, as another strike is launched on a building nearby.

Supporters of the Islamist terror network have been known to release similar posters in the past, often using images of major Western cities such as New York and London.

They are often shared on encrypted messaging apps such as Telegram, to ‘inspire’ extremists to carry out terror attacks.

On Monday, the same group issued a poster depicting an artillery strike on the White House in Washington DC, the Colosseum in Rome and Egypt’s famous pyramids, threatening to ‘demolish thrones’.

On New Year’s Day, they published a chilling poster showing a jihadist with a sniper rifle looking out over New York, and another of a hooded fanatic standing in a crowd in London.

In the image of London, blood can be seen on Big Ben while other buildings burn in the background.

A jihadist with his face hidden holds a finger to his lips next to a caption saying: ‘Welcome to bloody years – The lone wolf action’….

South Carolina man converts to Islam, plants explosives all over Anderson County

Yet another convert to Islam gets the idea that his new religion commands him to commit treason and mass murder. Despite the fact that this is a frequently occurring phenomenon, authorities have nowhere shown the slightest degree of interest in studying it.

Wesley Dallas Ayers, 27.

“Anderson man, who warned of jihad, sentenced to 30 years for using homemade explosives,” by Daniel J. Gross, Anderson Independent Mail, February 8, 2019:

An Anderson man who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State has been sentenced for using weapons of mass destruction after authorities found several homemade explosive devices around Anderson County.

Wesley Dallas Ayers, 27, was sentenced to more than 30 years in federal prison and five years of supervised release after previously pleading guilty, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Friday.

Ayers admitted that he constructed and placed three explosive devices in various parts of Anderson County between Jan. 24, 2018 and Feb. 24, 2018, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Ayers pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in letters and warned of a jihad, according to investigators’ testimony in a federal court hearing before he pleaded guilty.

One of the devices, placed at the intersection of Travis and Martin roads in Anderson County, detonated and injured one person, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The other two devices were located and intercepted by law enforcement before they caused any harm.

Three hoax devices were also placed around Anderson County that resembled explosives but were not. In some devices, Ayers left notes indicating that more powerful devices were to come, according to the statement.

His arrest came after a month-long investigation with the Federal Bureau of Investigation; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office and various other law enforcement agencies.

Authorities searched Ayers’ property that showed items consistent with the manufacturing of explosive devices.

Islamic State calls on Muslims to poison food Kate Middleton buys at supermarkets

This is nothing new. Al-Qaeda has long considered the contamination of food as a jihad mass murder tactic. And in 2017, the Islamic State called on Muslims to poison food in Western supermarkets

And it has happened at least twice in Britain:

UK: Shop-owners sold chocolate cake sprinkled with human feces

UK: Muslim who sprayed food with feces and urine can’t be deported

Food jihad? Muslim woman puts needles in meat in Canada

Kate Middleton – Duchess of Cambridge

“ISIS plot to KILL Kate Middleton in sick supermarket scheme,” by Isobel Dickinson, Daily Star, January 13, 2019:

TERRORISTS have threatened to poison Kate Middleton’s food in a sick new plot.

A vile post sent on encrypted extremist site Telegram urged Isis fanatics to try to tamper with what she eats at her favourite supermarkets.

They shared photos of the Duchess shopping, with a red X scrawled over her trolley, with the message: “We know what she eats – poison it!”

There was also a chilling new threat against Prince George.

A picture showed the tot holding Prince William’s hand beside a masked knife-wielding ISIS nut, alongside the words: “Rise of the kuffar” – which translates as “unbeliever”.

The messages prompted an exchange between dozens of fanatics on the chat room, detailing how to insert poison into food, where Kate has been spotted shopping.

They also shared information on which stores Kate shops in.

A security source told Daily Star Sunday the threat was being taken “very seriously”.

The hate message was posted on the same site used by Islamic State supporter Husnain Rashid to call on his followers to kill Kate and William’s son Prince George.

Former mosque teacher Rashid, 32, is now serving life in jail over the plot.

He also urged fanatics in some of the staggering 290,000 hate messages he sent on encrypted sites to poison tubs of ice cream in supermarkets across Britain.

The Telegram instant messaging app has military grade encryption and was described as a “tool kit for terrorism” during Rashid’s trial.

Our source said: “Intelligence agents believe the threats made against Kate are not idle and are linked to messages sent by Husnain Rashid….

VIDEO: Muslim from Dearborn captured on an Islamic State battlefield

His family is claiming that he was misled. That is their only possible recourse, as otherwise they would have to admit that the Islamic State ideology is spreading in Dearborn. And that could lead to an investigation.

Ibraheem Musaibli from Dearborn, Michigan.

“Dearborn man captured in Syria charged in terror case,” by Robert Snell and Sarah Rahal, Detroit News, July 24, 2018:

Detroit — A Dearborn man captured on an Islamic State battlefield this month was charged in an unsealed indictment Tuesday with providing material support to the Islamic State.

The indictment, dated July 19, was unsealed five days after it was reported that Ibraheem Musaibli, 28, was taken into custody by coalition-backed forces this month while trying to flee the Middle Euphrates River Valley in northern Syria, according to the New York Times, which first reported his capture….

The indictment accuses Musaibli of providing support to ISIS since April 2015. ISIS is a designated foreign terrorist organization. He used several aliases, including Abu Shifa Musaibli and Abu ‘Abd Al-Rahman Al-Yemeni, according to the government….

The portrayal is at odds with a description provided by his family. Musaibli is no terrorist but was lured by fellow Muslims into coming to Syria to study religion and work, younger brother Abdullah Musaibli said last week.

On Tuesday, Abdullah Musaibli told The Detroit News he booked a flight home from New York after Ibraheem’s indictment.

“I have to come back to Michigan to support my big brother,” said Abdullah Musaibli, 26. “I’ve been in New York City for a couple of months … it’s time I see the family.”

Abdullah Musaibli said he still believes his brother is not a terrorist.

“Yes, 110 percent, I don’t just believe he’s innocent. I KNOW he’s innocent,” Abdullah Musaibli said via Facebook Messenger….

Ibraheem Musaibli was raised in Dearborn. An Edsel Ford High School dropout, Musaibli helped his father operate a perfume shop in Detroit and had no contact with police besides a few minor traffic incidents, according to the Dearborn Police.

Eventually, he got married, fathered a son and moved to the port city of Aden, Yemen.

While in Yemen, Ibraheem Musaibli started talking with fellow Muslims, his brother said, who lured him to Syria in 2015.

Ibraheem Musaibli did not watch online sermons by radical Islamic clerics or seek out Islamic State contacts, his brother said.

At some point, Musaibli traveled to Syria. There were few details included in the indictment Tuesday that would describe how and when he traveled to the war-torn country.

Ibraheem’s father, Izzy Musaibli, told The News late Friday the FBI has been working to help his son escape from an Islamic State prison.

“He’s not a fighter, he’s been working with the FBI to escape ISIS and after the last time he tried to escape, (ISIS) burned his passport,” Izzy Musaibli said. “The FBI knows he’s not a fighter and he’s only been doing small work there for food to survive.”

Izzy Musaibli said the family had brief contact with Ibraheem while he was stuck in Syria, trapped because the militants thought Ibraheem was a spy.

“(ISIS) doesn’t represent Islam, they have a totally different ideology, and Ibraheem was preaching against them,” he said. “Every time he tried to escape, he was put back in prison, and we’ve been working with the FBI as a team.”

Canadian MP Chris Bittle labels anti-ISIS protesters ‘white supremacists’

What if a returning Islamic State jihadi is white? Will Chris Bittle’s head explode?

Islam is not a race. Jihad is not a race. Trying to protect Canadians from jihad massacres is not “white supremacism.” Chris Bittle is a dangerous fool who has no place anywhere near government — in a sane society, that is.

“Canadian Liberal MP Labels Anti-Islamic State Protesters ‘White Supremacists,’” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, January 7, 2018:

An MP of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party slammed protests in his city directed against returning Islamic State fighters, calling the protestors “racists” and “white supremacists.”

Liberal Party MP for St. Catherines Chris Bittle took to Facebook earlier this week to condemn a protest against Islamic State fighters returning from the Middle East to Canada in front of his office.

For Mr Bittle, the four or so people who carried signs reading “Jail ISIS Fighters” were, in his words, “white supremacists”, using the issue of Islamic State fighters to “promote their hateful, racist views.”

Since making the post Bittle has received over two thousand comments, with many asking Mr Bittle to point out the protesters’ links to white supremacist movements or ideologies. While Bittle did link to an post allegedly made by a person who he claimed led the protest which contained anti-Muslim imagery, many were not satisfied.

When one user asked Bittle to “put Canadians first” and refuse entry for returning Islamic State fighters, Bittle said “returning fighters are Canadians who have not been charged with a crime”.  He added that most returnees had come back to Canada under the previous conservative government.

Returning Islamic State fighters have become a major issue in Canada, with many seeing the Liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau being incredibly weak on the issue.

Many slammed Mr Trudeau when he insisted that returning fighters would be deradicalised with podcasts and poetry, and that many of the returnees would be “an extraordinarily powerful voice for preventing radicalization.”…

Russian mercenaries executed by ISIS ‘for refusing to reject Christianity and become Muslim’

Yet there are still authorities who will tell us that ISIS and all other jihad groups have nothing to do with Islam. The willful ignorance and denial is near-universal.

“Russian mercenaries captured by ISIS ‘are executed after refusing to reject Christianity and become Muslim,’” by Will Stewart, MailOnline, October 6, 2017:

Two Russian mercenaries reportedly captured by ISIS jihadists are feared to have been executed because they refused to read out a statement saying they rejected their Christian faith and had become Muslim.

Roman Zabolotny, 39, and Grigory Tsurkanu, 38, held in Syria, also refused to say on camera that they had joined the terrorist group.

The men are believed to have been fighting for a private Russian mercenary force comprising ex-servicemen which saw action in Crimea and eastern Ukraine before Syria.

They were held by jihadists around the eastern city of Deir Ezzor, the last ISIS stronghold in the country.

They appeared in a video released earlier this week by ISIS news agency Amak which claimed inaccurately that the men were serving Russian soldiers.

Senior Russian MP Viktor Vodolatsky said: ‘It is very sad but 99 per cent Roman Zabolotny is not alive, nor is the second prisoner.

‘Before filming that video they were given a statement which they had to read.

‘In this text they would reject their Orthodox religion, reject their motherland, become Muslim and join ISIS.

‘They stayed loyal to the Orthodox faith and their Motherland until the very end, and this is what they were killed by those gangsters for.’

There has been no official confirmation from the Russian authorities about their fate, but Vladimir Putin’s government is coy speaking about such mercenary forces in Syria and other hot spots, even though experts say they work closely with the armed forces.

A local MP in Rostov-on-Don, Zabolotny’s home city, also confirmed the pair had been ‘executed’, saying it happened the day after the video was made.

‘Unfortunately, this is true,’ said Anatoly Kotlyarov. ‘Information was received that they were executed in a town square.’…

Real estate agent converts to Islam, kidnaps her son, joins ISIS, poses son with Kalashnikov

So many converts to Islam get involved in jihad terror. Why? Because they read the Qur’an, and take its exhortations to wage war against unbelievers to heart. Yet authorities the world over have evinced no interest whatsoever in studying this phenomenon, and trying to prevent converts to Islam from becoming jihadis.

“From estate agent to IS recruiter: How woman became ‘different person’ & kidnapped her son,” RT, October 11, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Before joining Islamic State, Daria Itsankova was a successful real estate agent and wrote fantasy stories for children. Things changed overnight when she became interested in Islam, kidnapped her four-year-old son and later moved to Syria.

Itsankova, 38, is on the wanted list for aiding terrorists and recruiting Russians into the ranks of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in Syria.

Some seven years ago, Itsankova kidnapped her only son, David, from his father Mikhail and secretly took the boy first to Russia’s southern republic of Dagestan, and then to Syria. Now aged 10, David is thought to be based somewhere in Iraq. He is apparently with his step-sister, whose father, a Canadian boxer and friend of convicted Boston Marathon-bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was killed in Dagestan several years ago.

Itsankova’s husband recalled to RT Russian that after he found out that his wife “became part of a rebel group in the North Caucasus and later fled alongside IS militants” he simply could not believe it. “When we met, she was a completely different person,” he said.

In 2008, Itsankova, once a successful real estate agent, was dogged by serious problems at work: several clients had accused her of fraud. In order to turn a new page in her life, she moved to Aleksandrov, a town some 120km from Moscow, where Mikhail’s parents lived.

At that point, Mikhail left for Sochi, where he worked for almost a year. When he came back home in 2010, Itsankova told him that she had been captivated by Islam. “I didn’t pay any attention until she began to wear hijab and perform the daily Muslim prayers,” he told RT.

“One day, I came home to find neither her nor our child. She’d left a note on the table saying she had moved to another apartment,” Mikhail recalled. The note – which apparently read “your hound is at home, come home” – was left on April 1, April Fool’s day, so the father thought it might be a joke, RIA Novosti reports.

Yet, the husband learned from the message that Itsankova had begun to live with a Muslim man, Avraam. He allegedly treated David badly and forced him to learn Arabic, the child told his father. According to the boy, the man – who asked to be called ‘Brother Avraam’ – had beaten him with a belt and a stick, forbade him from singing, reading, drawing and playing games. All the toys from the house were thrown into the trash.

David told his father that his mother’s lover had shaved his head with a women’s shaver and afterwards told the boy: “Hey, bald head – your sweet life is over.”

RT has learned that the multi-talented Itsankova once worked as a copy editor in a publishing house. Mikhail believes that Daria came under the influence of Islamists on the internet, since she spent a lot of time browsing social networks for her job.

In 2011, Mikhail’s parents had intervened, and managed to take the boy away from his mother, to live with them in their house. Itsankova occasionally came to visit. During one of those visits, she allegedly kidnapped David and left for Makhachkala, the capital of the Russian Republic of Dagestan.

Howver, when Mikhail turned to the police, they refused to take any action, because technically, the boy was with his own mother. Little is known about Itsankova’s life in Dagestan, apart from minimal reports from Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), as well as materials from the scandalous criminal case against four women in Russia who sponsored ISIS fighters at the expense of the proceeds from the sale of children’s clothes and hand-made soap.

According to a source in the security forces, having moved to Makhachkala in 2011, Itsankova quickly established ties with the wives of IS militants, radical Islamists and members of local rebel groups.

She then apparently became involved in recruiting individuals for terrorism purposes and the collection of funds for IS militants. In Dagestan, Itsankova married former Canadian boxer William Plotnikov and gave birth to a daughter.

In 2012, FSB officers killed seven militants suspected of murdering policemen and attacking roadblocks in Dagestan, with Plotnikov among those shot dead.

After the death, Itsankova continued to raise funds for the militants, the security source claimed. In 2013, the FSB managed to track the woman down, but failed to detain her. Nothing more is known of Itsankova’s fate, except that until recently she was based in Iraq….

Egypt: Muslim blocks priest’s car and asks him to get out, then murders him

Rapists and wife-beaters flocked to join ISIS

Of course. Islam justifies both.

A hadith depicts Muhammad saying:

“If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning” (Bukhari 4.54.460).

Another hadith attributes this to Muhammad:

“By him in Whose Hand lies my life, a woman can not carry out the right of her Lord, till she carries out the right of her husband. And if he asks her to surrender herself [to him for sexual intercourse] she should not refuse him even if she is on a camel’s saddle” (Ibn Majah 1854).

The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.

As as for wife-beating:

“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34

Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” — Aisha (Sahih Muslim 2127)

“Rapists and wife-beaters flocked to join ISIS because the group’s systemised sexual violence appealed to them, study shows,” by Iain Burns, Mailonline, October 9, 2017 (thanks to Robert):

A new study has shown that many men with a history of sexual violence and domestic abuse joined ISIS because of the group’s use of slavery and rape.

The Henry Jackson Society report claims the sanctioning of systemic sexual abuse served as a way of ‘attracting, retaining, mobilising and rewarding fighters’.

It was also used as a means of delivering cruel punishment to ‘kafir’ – non-Muslims – and as a form of terrorism.

With slavery and rape given Islamic justification by the depraved group’s theologians, sexual exploitation was also used as a way of raising cash for the caliphate.

The study shows many ISIS fighters from the US and Europe had a background of abusing women, which implies a relationship between ‘committing terrorist attacks and having a history of physical and/or sexual violence’.

One infamous jihadist described as key in the savage persecution of non-Muslims in ISIS territory is the Briton Siddhartha Dhar.

The father-of-four, once a bouncy castle salesman in Walthamstow, is said to have even enslaved some Yazidi women and girls himself and regularly taken part in trafficking.

The Yazidis, deemed by ISIS to be ‘pagans’ that can be raped and enslaved without consequence, have provided much of the supply of women and girls for the group.

According to the report, the prospect of having unlimited access to women was intentionally advertised to attract men from conservative Islamic societies where casual sex is prohibited.

The group also sanctioned forced conversions and pregnancies after women were enslaved or abused as a means of adding to the ranks of the extremist cult.

Another Briton with a history of sexual violence – Ondogo Ahmed, from London, who was jailed for eight years after raping a 16-year-old girl – joined the group in 2013.

He fled to the caliphate in Syria when out of prison on licence.

Nikita Malik, the author of the report, was quoted in The Guardian as saying: ‘These cases indicate an existence of a type of terrorism that is sexually motivated, in which individuals with prior records of sexual violence are attracted by the sexual brutality carried out by members of Islamic State.’

Other men with a past of domestic or sexual abuse include London Bridge murderer Rachid Redouane and Westminster terrorist Khalid Masood….

ISIS video claims Las Vegas revenge for attack on the caliphate

Gareth Davies for MailOnline reports:

Islamic State has released a new video bragging that the Las Vegas massacre was revenge for US attacks against their caliphate.

In what appears to be a desperate publicity stunt, the terror group claimed the horrific acts of Stephen Paddock, 64, were down to them, saying they radicalised him months before he shot 58 people dead and injured 527 more on Sunday night. He then committed suicide.

FBI officials rubbished the claims, saying he had no affiliation to any terrorist organisations, but the Islamic extremists took to their propaganda news agencies to spread the word.

Specter of the Caliphate is haunting Europe

At a Party meeting, the Party leader addresses the audience:

“All of you will be hanged tomorrow. Do you have questions?”

Silence.

The Party leader:

“I will repeat the question. Tomorrow you all will be hanged. Does anybody want to say anything?”

A timid voice is heard from the audience:

“Shall we bring our own rope and soap or they will provide it to us?”

This was a Soviet anecdote of the 70s.

The world of Quisling’s followers, barbarian colonizers, and a submissive, or at best frightened, murmuring herd — this is the Western Europe of the 21st century

In 1975, he was 40 years old, and he was well-known already: his performances were popular; he was a member of the editorial board of a famous literary magazine. Any path was open before him, but he chose a different way.

After putting down the Prague Spring, he challenged the authorities, having written an open and furious letter addressed to the President of Czechoslovakia, which was occupied by the Soviet troops. He was arrested, accused of attacking a civil servant and put into prison. Later on he was released, accused of an attempt to overthrow the communist regime, imprisoned for four years and five months, released again and imprisoned again in 1989.

He spent years in prison and turned into an unbreakable leader of his people – a future president of the Czech Republic. His name is Vaclav Havel. Like Thomas Masaryk, the founder of the Czech Republic, he was an embodiment of the best qualities of a statesman: mind, fortitude, strength and decency.

The West presents a gloomy picture of impending darkness and tyranny, the likes of haven’t been known to the civilized world for centuries. This is the world in which an aggressive, patriarchal and primitive religion has taken root in the very heart of the continent; in which bearers of dark prejudices, intolerance and barbarism, who came from the far ends of Asia and Africa, murder, rape, mock and disparage those who trustfully and carelessly opened their doors to them. This is the world in which the elite have turned into Quisling’s followers, the guides of colonization, and the governments of the nations have chosen (more or less eagerly) the role of Vichy.

However, we notice a striking phenomenon: masses of people doomed to inevitable suffering keep silent or, at best, passively and anonymously express their disagreement during elections — although they have almost no chance to win, since the whole state system is aimed at brainwashing, and the people of Western Europe and Canada are deprived of individualism and self-reliance, like the people of America. Undoubtedly, there are those who dared to raise their voice against the invading despotism, but there are few of them, surprisingly very few for a society that is still relatively open. This applies to both intellectuals and ordinary people.

I am not talking about the so called “useful idiots” — sectarians blinded by ideological clichés and ready to use the corpses of their compatriots to pave their path to the Pastures of Hell. I am not talking about those who receive grants and privileges — they have chosen this cynical and dirty role. I am talking about the thousands of ordinary professors, teachers, lawyers, writers, actors, filmmakers, journalists. I am talking about priests and rabbis, human rights activists, feminists, activists of the LGBT community — those who will be the first victims of the forthcoming theocracy. They will not be granted an easy death.

What makes those whose relatives, friends and neighbors are blown up, raped, humiliated and held in terror keep silent? Haven’t they already lost a sense of security and calm in their own homes, streets and cities? We see sentimental scenes with weeping people, toys, candles and wreaths at places of massacre, where mass demonstrations, rallies of protest and pickets are needed instead. We see exalted the opponents of Marine Le Pen and Geert Wilders, and the Women’s Marches, but we do not see any opponents of politically correct tyranny. Why do people submit their throats to murderers, being obedient like sheep?

What is this — self-censorship, conformism, the hope that they will avoid the fate of being a victim? They won’t escape this. After the terrorist attack in Manchester, the pop star Katy Perry, the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and a member of the French Senate for Nice, Nathalie Goulet, expressed the opinion of the Western elites by saying that Europeans should get used to terrorist attacks. And they will make them get used to them. Finally, they will get used to the fate of the so-called “dhimmis” – semi-slaves, human cattle, whose lives will be taken by servants of the bloodthirsty cult.

Do they fear turning into racists, fascists, Islamophobes? Do the fear losing jobs, opportunities for career growth, invitations to conferences on human rights and inter-confessional dialogue? Do they fear paying a fine for defamation?

I started this article with Vaclav Havel’s story not at random. For decades, the world has witnessed Eastern European people desperately struggling for their rights and dignity against tyranny. The Hungarian Revolution of 1956, the Prague Spring, the Polish Solidarity movement, the Romanian revolution against Ceaușescu’s dictatorship, the courage of the Lithuanians who escaped the “bear embrace” of the Soviet empire in January 1991 at the cost of dozens of lives – crowds of people led by the intellectual class walked out to the streets and were confronted not by courts or comments on Facebook and anonymous threats on Twitter, but by bullets, tanks and the State Security. They had neither lawyers nor rights. They knew that they could be put into prison for years, like Havel, or even die (Havel’s friend philosopher Jan Patočka died during an interrogation). Nevertheless, Eastern Europeans became stronger owing to this experience, ready to defend Democracy and their freedom. They gained immunity against universalistic utopias and put forward courageous and determined leaders.

There was a powerful dissident movement in the very citadel of Soviet tyranny. Many of these people disappeared in prisons, camps and psychiatric hospitals. They shared prison cells with criminals, who were encouraged to bully them and commit sexual violence (carte blanche) against them. Most of the Soviet dissidents were represented by scientists and writers headed by the academic Andrey Sakharov – they were the color of the nation. During the Soviet Coup in August 1991, armored troop carriers in Moscow crushed three people, but the restoration of the Soviet regime was prevented.

In our time, Ukrainians have overthrown their corrupt ruler, and in Moscow, people go out to protests against autocracy. In Israel, after the vicious Oslo agreements and the subsequent murderous mass terrorist attacks, tens of thousands of people repeatedly took to the streets demanding a stop to inhuman political experiments on the living body of the society. People blocked the roads and organized marches to the Prime Minister’s residence. About eight years ago, the mass outbreak forced the Israeli government, despite enraged opposition from left organizations and the media, to build a fence on the border with Egypt to protect the country against hordes of African migrants.

It is symbolic that Pegida, which did not find followers in the rest of Western Europe, appeared on the territory of the former German Democratic Republic.

Democracy is not just voting once in every four years. First of all, this is a civic activity, and requires courage — it is not the act of a weeping child in a kindergarten. A primary task of a democratic state is the protection of its people. If a state and elites do not comply with the social contract, and what is even worse, sacrifice their own people, culturally and physically, in the name of a dubious ideology, utopian conception and personal interests, then the people have their right to demand the revision of that social contract. They have a full right not to allow totalitarian structures (and the Western elite has implanted a sophisticated cultural totalitarianism) to turn them into guinea pigs of social engineering.

In 1984, in the essay called “Politics and Conscience,” Havel wrote: “I advocate an anti-political policy, that is, a policy considered to be not a method of power and manipulation, not a cybernetic system for managing human beings and not a pragmatic person’s skill, but one of the ways to seek and achieve a meaningful life, protect such life and serve it. I advocate a policy considered to be practical ethics, service to the truth, people’s care of their fellow human beings, measurable by human standards.”

The Western elites have created a system of manipulating human beings, having forgotten that they are dealing with real people, their lives and feelings.

Havel called Communist regimes Absurdistan (The Land of the Absurd). Today Absurdistan is the West, and most of all Western Europe, where freedom is destroyed under the guise of its protection, where the right of migrants to murder and rape is above the right of law-abiding citizens to live a normal and safe life, and where democratic institutions are used to implant the worst possible kind of theocracy.

Nowadays, people still have an opportunity to prevent despotism. However, censorship is getting stricter, penalties are increasing, colonization is spreading rapidly like cancer cells, and the window of possibilities is narrowing. A specter is haunting Europe: the specter of the Caliphate.
