France

In France it is now the turn of the ” Sunday people “

In France it is now the Christians’ turn to be targeted  for attacks by Islamists. This is not a new phenomenon.There is actually an Arabic Islamist slogan that says “First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people.”In other words, first Muslims attack Jews; then when the Jews are gone, they attack Christians. We have watched it happen over and over again in the Middle East and now it is happening in Europe. Many French Jews have fled France and moved to Israel. 8000 of them left France for Israel last year which is a rate far higher than anywhere else in Europe. Once they are all gone the attacks on Christians will increase to fill the void they have left.

The slaughter of French priest Father Jacques Hamel on July 26 in Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray was significant. The church where Father Jacques Hamel was saying mass was nearly empty.

…Christianity in France is dying out. Jacques Hamel was almost 86 years old; despite his age, he did not want to retire. He knew it would be difficult to find someone to replace him.

…The reaction of the French bishops was also significant. Speaking in their name, Georges Pontier, chairman of the Conference of Bishops of France…asked Muslims living in France to come to church to “share the grief of Christians.” He added that Muslims are welcome in France.

The decision to deliver a message of brotherhood is consistent with the spirit of Christianity. The wish to welcome Muslims to France but to leave completely aside that the assassins of Father Jacques Hamel acted in the name of Islam and jihad seem signs of willful blindness, severely pathological denial, and a resigned, suicidal acceptance of what is coming.

The assassins of Father Jacques Hamel are what is coming.

…Father Jacques Hamel was murdered on July 26, in the church of Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, by Islamic jihadists.
The French education system does not teach young people to love France and the West. Itteaches them instead that colonialism plundered many poor countries, that colonized people had to fight to free themselves, and that the fight is not over. It teaches them to hate France. But it erroneously describes Islam as a religion that brought “justice, dignity and tolerance” wherever it reigned.

Seventh-grade students spend the first month of the school year learning what Islamic civilization brought to the world in science, architecture, philosophy and wealth. A few weeks later, they have to memorize texts explaining that the Church committed countless atrocious crimes…The Holocaust is still in the curriculum, but is taught less and less; teachers who dare to speak of it face aggressive remarks from Muslim students.

…French mainstream media do their best to hide the truth. Abdel Malik Petitjean and Adel Kermiche are described as troubled and depressed young people who slipped “inexplicably” towards barbarity. Their actions are widely presented as having nothing to do with Islam.

Sade_DonatienThe Marquis de Sade

 Sex, Sacrilege and Sublimity

Marquis de Sade was a French aristocrat and philosopher who became notorious for acts of sexual cruelty in his writings as well as in his own life

Warning – This Story May Be Disturbing and Offensive to Some People.

“Either kill me or take me like this, for I will not change,” wrote the imprisoned Marquis de Sade to his wife in 1783. It could only be one or the other for the most extreme author of the 18th Century. Sade, an unstoppable libertine, was in the middle of what would be an 11-year prison sentence, but he would not recant his principles or his tastes to get out of jail. Any diversion from his true nature was, for the marquis, equivalent to death.

Marquis de Sade, a French aristocrat, philosopher and writer of explicit sexual works, was born in Paris in 1740. His writings depict violence, criminality, and blasphemy against the Catholic Church. During the French Revolution he was an elected delegate to the National Convention. The last years of his life were spent in an insane asylum. He died in 1814.

Donatien Alphonse François, best known as Marquis de Sade, was born in Paris, France on June 2, 1740. His father was a diplomat in the court of Louis XV, and his mother was a lady-in-waiting. From the start, de Sade was raised with servants who flattered his every whim.

By the age of 4, de Sade was known as a rebellious and spoiled child with an ever-growing temper. He once beat the French prince so severely that he was sent to the south of France to stay with his uncle, an abbot of the church. During his stay, while he was 6 years old, his uncle introduced him to debauchery. Four years later, de Sade was sent back to Paris to attend the Lycée Louis-le-Grand. After misbehaving in school, he was subject to severe corporal punishment, namely flagellation. He spent the rest of his adult life obsessed with the violent act.

The Recipe for Islamic Terror in France

Media and politicians seem unable to understand the recipe for Islamic terror in France even though there is a repeated pattern of behaviour. The pattern involves young Muslims spending years engaging in un-Islamic behaviour before completing terrorist attacks.

They go drinking, clubbing, do drugs and indulge in other non-Muslim like behaviour before turning to Islam and engaging in violent Jihad.


France’s Recipe for endless Jihad:

  1. They are Muslims in terms of what they believe but they are not Muslims in terms of their actions. In France they have the freedom to indulge in non-Islamic behaviour that they wouldn’t be able to indulge in if they were back in an Islamic country. Plenty of Christians can relate to this idea of believing one thing but in reality doing another. Muslims are not the only people who don’t always live their lives according to the rules/standards that they were brought up with.

Why do our leaders not see this as war?

I was watching Last Night of the Proms last night, and they started the performance with this:

As anthems go, La Marseillaise is definitely in the top 10.  Stirring stuff.  A haka in its own right.  It made me reflect on Nice, as it was, of course, the Proms’ tribute to the French.   And it struck me that we are a marvellous people.  Look at what can be done when we work together.  A stage full of people who are near the top of their game on each instrument, coming together; not to shine as individuals, but to work together towards a goal so much greater than themselves.   Read more »

The New York Times are dancing on the head of a pin about terrorism in France

Nice-Attack-4

First, let’s look at the facts:

  • It was not a man named Bruce who, in an act of terrorism, mowed down women and children at a family celebration in France. It was a man named Mohamed.
  • It was not the first ISIS-inspired terrorist attack in France nor will it be the last.
  • All the terrorist attacks in France this decade have been committed by radicalised Muslim jihadis. Every single one.
  •  France is not the only European country to experience a terrorist attack committed by a radicalised Muslim jihadi.

The Battle of the Somme

But all that my mind sees

Is a quaking bog in a mist — stark, snapped trees,
And the dark Somme flowing.

Vance Palmer (1885–1959),

‘The Farmer Remembers The Somme’

The Battle of the Somme, fought in northern France, was one of the bloodiest of World War One. The aims of the battle, were to relieve the French Army fighting at Verdun and to weaken the German Army. However, the Allies were unable to break through German lines. In total, there were millions dead and wounded on all sides.

The Battle of the Somme, also known as the Somme Offensive, was one of the largest battles of the First World War. Fought between July 1 and November 1, 1916 near the Somme River in France, it was also one of the bloodiest military battles in history. On the first day alone, the British suffered more than 57,000 casualties, and by the end of the campaign the Allies and Central Powers would lose more than 1.5 million men.

A truly nightmarish world greeted the New Zealand Division when it joined the Battle of the Somme in mid-September 1916. The division was part of the third big push of the offensive, designed to crack the German lines once and for all. When it was withdrawn from the line a month later, the decisive breakthrough had still not occurred.

Fifteen thousand members of the division went into action. Nearly 6000 men were wounded and 2000 lost their lives. More than half the New Zealand Somme dead have no known grave. They are commemorated on the New Zealand Memorial to the Missing in Caterpillar Valley Cemetery, near Longueval. One of these men returned home to New Zealand in November 2004; his remains lie in the tomb of the Unknown Warrior outside New Zealand’s National War Memorial.

Arrests in suspected terrorist hit at the Belgium/Ireland Euro 2016 match

CC001a20160619

Three months after Islamist bombers killed 32 people in Brussels, police searched dozens of houses across the country and arrested 12 people the night before Belgium’s Euro 2016 game against Ireland on Saturday.

Nine of them were released after questioning but three Belgian nationals identified as 27-year-old Samir C., 40-year-old Moustapha B., and 29-year-old Jawad B., were charged with “having attempted to commit a terrorist murder and for participation in the activities of a terrorist group”, the federal prosecutor’s office said in a statement.

Poms will probably exit, now the Frogs are thinking about it too

The Poms are heading for a Brexit, and now the Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys are looking at heading out of Europe too.

France has turned even more viscerally eurosceptic than Britain over recent months, profoundly altering the political geography of Europe and making it impossible to judge how Paris might respond to Brexit.

An intractable economic crisis has been eating away at the legitimacy of the French governing elites for much of this decade. This has now combined with a collapse in the credibility of the government, and mounting anger over immigration.

A pan-European survey by the Pew Research Center released today found that 61pc of French voters have an “unfavourable” view, compared to 48pc in the UK.

A clear majority is opposed to “ever closer union” and wants powers returned to the French parliament, a finding that sits badly with the insistence by President Francois Hollande that “more Europe” is the answer to the EU’s woes.

“It is a protest against the elites,” said Professor Brigitte Granville, a French economist at Queen Mary University of London. “There are 5000 people in charge of everything in France. They are all linked by school and marriage, and they are tight.”

Prof Granville said the mechanisms of monetary union have upset the Franco-German strategic marriage, wounding the French psyche.  “The EU was sold to the French people as a `partnership’ of equals with Germany. But it has been very clear since 2010 that this is not the case. Everybody could see that Germany decided everything in Greece,” she said.

The death of the Monnet dream in the EU’s anchor state poses an existential threat to the European project and is running in parallel to what is happening in Britain.

Oh come on Paxman, they are world champions at marching backwards

cheese_eating_surrender_monkey

Jeremy Paxman has attacked the cheese-eating surrender monkeys.

French is a “useless language” and the nation’s achievements are “long past”, Jeremy Paxman has claimed, in a brutal attack on our European neighbours.

The former Newsnight host said that middle-class Britons should end their “forelock-tugging” deference to France’s haute cuisine and high-speed trains, as he claimed that the centuries-old battle between the two nations had been comprehensively decided in Britain’s favour.

Writing in the Financial Times, Paxman said French was a “useless language”. He wrote: “Let us block our ears to the middle-class English and their forelock-tugging deference to France’s highly subsidised rural living, high-speed trains and ‘marvellous food’.

“No one is going to deny that, historically, France has enhanced civilisation. European culture would be a thin thing without Montaigne, Descartes, Debussy and Cézanne, to say nothing of the dictator’s dictator, Napoleon Bonaparte.   Read more »
