Al-Qaeda amenaza a los soldados alemanes en Afganistán en un vídeo en Internet

Filed under: Al-Qaeda,Alemania,terrorismo — Nora @ 1:15 pm

Al Qaeda threatens German soldiers in web video – International Herald Tribune:

“Al-Qaeda amenazó a los soldados alemanes en Afganistán en un vídeo en internet el pasado fin de semana, lo que sirvió para que el gobierno en Berlín señalara que el riesgo de un ataque islamista en suelo alemán se ha incrementado.

Citando a la participación de Alemania en la lucha contra los talibanes en Afganistán, el mensaje de vídeo posteado en Internet fue titulado “El paquete de rescate para Alemania” y tenía el logotipo de As-Sahab, el brazo mediático de Al-Qaeda.

‘Vuestros soldados no están seguros en ningún sitio,’ dijo un hombre enmascarado vestido con un turbante negro en un vídeo posteado online el pasado sábado por la noche (lo que no saben es divertirse… mira que un sábado por la noche posteando vídeos caseros de amenazas de Al-Qaeda por Internet….). Un signo debajo de la cabeza del hombre le identificó como ‘Abu Talha el alemán’ quien hablaba alemán con un suave acento extranjero.

‘Si los alemanes… inocentemente creen que se irán de rositas, entonces los políticos están desafortunadamente fuera de su elemento.’

Quien intentó hacer una distinción entre Al-Qaeda y los talibanes no ha entendido a su enemigo, añadió.”

Se espera una manifestación de los kulturetas clamando contra esta amenaza, tras el gravísimo error que supone confundir a Al-Qaeda con los talibanes…

En finsssss….

Atentado en la embajada alemana en Kabul

globeandmail.com: Three killed, many wounded at German embassy bombing in Kabul via Twitter:

“A suicide car bomb exploded outside the German embassy and a U.S. base in the Afghan capital, Kabul, on Saturday, killing three civilians, witnesses said.

A sewage tanker and several cars were burning at the scene and there were bloodstains on the road as police loaded the bodies onto the back of a pick-up truck and ferried several wounded to nearby hospitals, a Reuters witness said.

The blast was a result of a suicide attack, an Interior Ministry spokesman said, but he could not confirm the number of casualties.

The bomber struck on a road lined with high concrete blast barriers that runs between the German embassy and Camp Eggers, the headquarters of a U.S. unit that trains the Afghan army and police.”

El Mundo:

Cuatro miembros del personal militar estadounidense de la base resultaron heridos leves por los cristales rotos y escombros, aunque las murallas del perímetro no fueron penetradas.
El suicida realizó su ataque en un camino rodeado por barreras de concreto de elevadas que se extienden entre la embajada de Alemania y Camp Eggers, el cuartel general de una unidad estadounidense que transporta al Ejército afgano y la policía.

Mientras el Twitter de CNN Breaking añade que hay 7 muertos civiles.

Alemania: joven afgano se niega a declara en el juicio en el que es el acusado del "asesinato por honor" de su hermana

Afghan youth silent at sister-killing trial in Germany : Europe World:

“Morsal y su hermano mayor eran ambos adolescentes problemáticos en una familia de Hamburgo de origen Tajiko. Su padre se dedicaba a la compra-venta de camiones usados y había sido piloto de la fuerza aérea comunista afgana en la guerra contra los talibanes.

Los padres tenían dificultades para educar a ambos hijos.

Morsal era perezosa en el colegio, pero sus padres estaban orgullosos de que hubiera ganado un premio cívico por iniciar un proyecto de consejeros en el colegio, por lo que su foto había salido en los periódicos.

El chico, Ahmad O, se convirtió en un truhán y en un delincuente con antecedentes por faltas desde 1998, incluyendo agresiones a otros miembros de su familia.

Se llevaba bien con su hermana, pero se oponía a que llevara ropa vistosa y maquillaje. La apuñaló 23 veces, un día después de que la chica hubiera ido a buscar consejo a la oficina de ayuda para los jóvenes de la ciudad.

Ahora con 24 años, ha dicho a un tribunal a través de su abogado en el primer día del juicio que no quiere declarar sobre los cargos.”

Más en el Middle East Times.

El llamado “asesinato por honor” ha llenado de rabia a las activistas por los derechos de la mujer. Un grupo realizó una representación en frente del Tribunal de Hamburgo donde el caso se abrió el jueves. Querían así dirigir su atención a casos como el de Morsal o el de Hatun Surucu, una mujer de Berlín de origen turco que fue asesinada por su hermano en 2005 porque no quiso aceptar las costumnres tradicionales que su familia quería imponerla.

Man jailed in failed German bomb plot – Terrorism- msnbc.com [EN]

Un hombre libanés fue sentenciado el jueves por tentativa de homicidio y sentenciado a cadena perpetua por su participación en el atentado de Colonia. Él fue quien puso las bombas en dos trenes alemanes.
El Tribunal del Estado de Duesseldorf encontró a Youssef Mohammed el-Hajdib, 24 años, culpable de múltiples delitos de tentativa de homicidio y tentativa para causar una explosión.
El-Hajdib fue uno de los dos principales sospechosos de poner bombas en dos trenes regionales en la estación principal de Colonia en julio de 2006. Las bombas fallaron al detonar.

El misterio del atentado en Kosovo contra las oficinas de la UE

Filed under: Alemania,Kosovo,violencia — Nora @ 10:00 pm

A Kosovan judge has ordered on Sunday 3 Germans suspected of throwing an explosive device at the European Union’s headquarters in Pristina to be held for 30 days. The prosecution is seeking terrorism charges that carry a maximum 20-year sentence, say lawyers for the detainees. The explosion had shattered the windows of the EU headquarters on November 14, causing no casualties. The EU’s “Blue Building” in Pristina is in the shape of a glass-plated cube.

Paolo considera esta una historia incomprensible salvo que estuvieran trabajando con los servicios secretos rusos.

Ahora bien, la cuestión entonces sería: ¿qué hacen tres alemanes pertenecientes al  Bundesnachrichtendienst, o sea, al Centro de Inteligencia alemán, tirando artefactos explosivos a las oficinas de la UE en Kosovo?

Raro, raro, raro…

"Kristalnacht"

Filed under: Alemania,anti-semitismo,Germany,Nazismo — Nora @ 3:17 pm

El año pasado Sam publicó un post precioso sobre la “Noche de los Cristales Rotos, de la que se conmemoraba (gracias, Daniel por la corrección, espero que ahora sí sea correcto) el 70º aniversario este pasado domingo 9 de noviembre. Al mismo tiempo casi, Le Figaro publicaba un artículo en el que se decía lo siguiente:

según el diario alemán Bild, al vaciar un departamente en Berlin fueron hallados planes originales de construcción del campo de concentración de Auschwitz en el que murieron alrededor de un millón de deportados, principalmente judíos. Los planos fueron firmados por altos jerarcas de las SS y en uno están las iniciales de Himmler.

Interesante la poca difusión que ha tenido esta noticia.

Si queréis leer más, La Terminal también tiene un post sobre la Kristalnacht. Y Martha Colmenares.

Más sobre este aniversario en El Economista, La Vanguardia, La Razón, El País, ABC.es.

Por último, podéis leer este post de Arcadi Espada al que llego a través de Nihil Obstat.

Los judíos siguen siendo gentes profundamente desagradables a ojos de los europeos. El paradigma del avaro judío de ayer es hoy un tipo armado hasta los dientes que dispara sobre niños palestinos. Ninguna simpatía. Sólo ceremonias macilentas de respeto a las víctimas. Europa y sus europeos judíos. ¿Qué ha hecho realmente por ellos? Si es que los hijos deben pechar con la culpa de sus padres (a mí que no me busquen), ¿cuándo han empezado estos hijos de mala Europa a avergonzarse y a darse golpes de pecho? El racismo norteamericano… ¡Pero cómo tienen vergüenza? La tarea de ocultación europea ha sido un prodigio desde la primera hora. 

Sobre todo leed la parte en la que se dice que “también fue posible decir que no“. Otra cosa es que ése fuera el camino más difícil…

Ese mismo día también se celebra el 19 aniversario de la caída del muro de Berlín.

Turkey’s fight against Islamism

Some days ago 3 Christians were killed after being tortured in the central city of Malatya:

The three victims — a German and two Turkish citizens — were found with their hands and legs bound and their throats slit at the Zirve publishing house in the central city of Malatya.
Police detained four youths, aged 19-20, and also suspect a fifth, who underwent surgery for head injuries sustained apparently in trying to escape by jumping from a window at Zirve, authorities said.
The five suspects had each had been carrying copies of a letter that read “We five are brothers. “We are going to our deaths. We may not return,” according to the state-run Anatolia news agency.

[…] In February 2006, a Turkish teenager shot a Catholic priest dead as he prayed in his church, and two other Catholic priests were attacked later that year. A November visit by Pope Benedict XVI was greeted by several nonviolent protests. Earlier this year, a suspected nationalist killed Armenian Christian editor Hrant Dink.

[…] The manner in which the victims were bound suggested the attack could have been the work of a local Islamic militant group, commentators said, and CNN-Turk television reported that police were investigating the possible involvement of Turkish Hezbollah — a Kurdish Islamic organization that aims to form a Muslim state in Turkey’s Kurdish-dominated southeast.
Turkish Hezbollah — which has been known to “hog-tie” its victims while torturing them — takes its name from the Lebanon-based Hezbollah, but has no formal links to it. Turkish authorities recently said they were witnessing an increase in the group’s activities.

The Middle East Times [h/t The Belmont Club] reported about the torture inflicted on the victims:

“He had scores of knife cuts on his thighs, his testicles, his rectum, and his back,” Ugras said. “His fingers were sliced to the bone. “It is obvious that these wounds had been inflicted to torture him,” he said.

[…] The abuse lasted for three hours as the five men detained at the crime scene interrogated the three on their missionary activities, they said.

But there is another thing to worry about h/t NoisyRoom.Net:

Even though both Turks who died on Wednesday had abandoned Islam and converted to Christianity, Ugur Yuksel was buried as a Muslim.

More in Kattolikko Pensiero.

The Turkish PM Erdogan considered this “a brutality“. But the fact that he have elected his friend Abdullah Gül to substitute him (Erdogan is retiring from active politics) has caused a terrible political storm.

Gül is what MSM call a moderate Muslim. His wife wears the veil -she could not study at University because of that- and his daughter wears a wig instead of hijab, not to show her hair attending the Unversity classes. [In the Atatürk founded state, based on modern secularism, women who wear hijabs are forbidden to attend any official/public gathering/office.

Lots of Turks began demonstrating against the naming of Gül h/t C&R. The Jawa Report has a video in this post.

The Turkish Army, guardian of the secularism, spoke to warn against any movements that would make secularism disappear from Turkey. The Government told the Army that the military chief answers to the Prime Minister

And the EU “warned Turkish Army over vote“:

EU Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn said the controversy was a test case for
the military to respect democracy.

So it is true that they are seeing it better an moderate Islamist Turkey than a military held secular Government. I wonder what they would say if any Catholic country would be in the same position…

At the same time,I think they are searching for a reason not to admit Turkey in EU. I mean, if Turkey would be a real stable secularist country with no kind of influence from Islamists, EU would have it really tough not to admit them. But as it is, there are great majorities both in Germany and France -here it would really depends on who wins the Presidential election, as Ségoléne has announced she would support Turkey’s admittance into the EU- that do not like Turks in the EU. If a coup happens or Islamist influence grows, it is going to be plainly difficult… to tell them EU admits them… [remember Gül was the one who said that, if Turkey wasn’t admitted, the EU would be considered as “a Christian club”?]

More about this at Town Commons who points out that ten years ago, the Army ousted Islamist premier Necmettin Erbakan’s government, in which Gul also served, with strong public backing and without tanks on the streets, something which forgets to tell the Economist when writing about Gül. He also comments about this:

I am unsure how to feel about the EU’s warning. On one hand, it is comic for being utterly meaningless. There is no military threat behind it, and it is pretty clear that the EU will not forgo a single euro in trade over it. On the other hand, it is rather ironic for being issued in protection of Islamists. If Gates of Vienna’s compelling arguments on Islamicization in Europe and its likely course are accurate, this continued EU willingness to do business with and support Islamists may be biting them sooner rather then later.

More about demonstrations against Islamism in Turkey from Gateway Pundit. Jim has posted a lot of photos, like the one on the right.

Newsbusters also wrote about this: How will media Report Massive Turkish Protests Against Islamic-Rooted Government? h/t Custos Fidei.

More about the demonstrations in NYT, Deutsche Welle.

It’s curious that International MSM pictures these huge demonstration (1 million according to Turkish TV) as “elite” demonstrations… and that the demonstrations are considering the Islamists as inferior human beings.

Turkish political tensions hit currency ahead of court ruling.

Tulay Tugcu, president of the Constitutional Court, said she hoped for a ruling on Friday’s contested first-round vote before the second round is held on Wednesday.
If the court’s 11 judges rule in favor of the plaintiff, the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP), the election will be annulled and early elections will be called in 45 to 90 days.
The CHP based its complaint on a technicality, saying the 550-member parliament should have had a quorum of 367 to open the session for a presidential election — the number of votes required for a candidate to be elected in the first round.

Other news about Turkey:

  • Turkey warned Canada US against using term genocide regarding Armenians. Canadian Prime Minister Harper was warned through diplomatic channels last week that “repeating these claims annually will not help in normalizing Turkey-Armenia relations and will harm Turkish-Canadian bilateral relations as well.” “We hope that the Canadian PM will not repeat this year what he did last year,” a high-level Foreign Ministry official said, the Turkish Daily News reports. [To read more about Armenian genocide, go over to Fausta’s blog].
  • Turkish Islamists in Germany h/t Jihadi du Jour: Welt am Sonntag: What do you think about the influence of Islam on the western world? Notker Wolf: There are certainly some groups that have set the islamization of Europe as their goal. I think that in itself is a serious thing. In Germany the Turkish association Ditib recently demanded that the «Word on Friday» be broadcast on public television. I only wonder: How can it be that these people demand all rights in Germany for themselves, while at the same time Christians are seriously discriminated in Turkey? Why are we, Christians, not allowed a theological faculty in Turkey? Why are we not allowed to have any church property there? Meanwhile, the mayor of Munich even breaks building regulations to approve a mosque, just to win the votes of the Turks. That is unbelievable! Tolerance is good, but it doesn’t mean we should surrender.
  • Turkey’s stocks, currency tumble on election fears (also on BBC, BBC) : The ISE National 100 index dropped 5.7% to 44,208.58, with Turkcell losing 2%, Finansbank down 1.7% and Alcatel Teletas losing 5.8%. The dollar gained as much as 4%, and climbed 2.7% to 1.3640 lira in morning trading.
    The staunchly secular military, which has led three coups since 1960, is upset that the leading presidential candidate, Abdullah Gul, has an Islamist past. In a statement made Friday evening, the military said it would act to defend secularism.
    Serhan Cevik, an analyst at Morgan Stanley, called the military’s statement “harsh” and “unexpected.”
    “Even though reasons behind this blunt declaration are open to debate, there is no doubt that even ‘post-modern’ statements undermine institutional reforms to demilitarize the political landscape and thereby Turkey’s accession negotiations with the European Union,” Cevik said in a note to clients.

German judge cites Koram to justify marital violence

Filed under: Alemania,Derechos Humanos,Islamismo — Nora @ 2:54 pm

From Spiegel Online:

The case seems simply too strange to be true. A 26-year-old mother of two wanted to free herself from what had become a miserable and abusive marriage. The police had even been called to their apartment to separate the two — both of Moroccan origin — after her husband got violent in May 2006. The husband was forced to move out, but the terror continued: Even after they separated, the spurned husband threatened to kill his wife.

A quick divorce seemed to be the only solution — the 26-year-old was unwilling to wait the year between separation and divorce mandated by German law. She hoped that as soon as they were no longer married, her husband would leave her alone. Her lawyer, Barbara Becker-Rojczyk agreed and she filed for immediate divorce with a Frankfurt court last October. They both felt that the domestic violence and death threats easily fulfilled the “hardship” criteria necessary for such an accelerated split.

In January, though, a letter arrived from the judge adjudicating the case. The judge rejected the application for a speedy divorce by referring to a passage in the Koran that some have controversially interpreted to mean that a husband can beat his wife. It’s a supposed right which is the subject of intense debate among Muslim scholars and clerics alike.”The exercise of the right to castigate does not fulfill the hardship criteria as defined by Paragraph 1565 (of German federal law),” the daily Frankfurter Rundschau quoted the judge’s letter as saying. It must be taken into account, the judge argued, that both man and wife have Moroccan backgrounds.

“The husband can beat his wife”

“The right to castigate means for me: the husband can beat his wife,” Becker-Rojczyk said, interpreting the judge’s verdict.

In an interview with SPIEGEL ONLINE, Becker-Rojczyk said the judge indicated to her that it makes no sense to insist on an accelerated divorce. The judge’s advice? Wait for the year-long waiting period to elapse.

Yet another proof of Western madness and multiculturalism. I totally agree with this:

The deputy floor leader for the Christian Democrats, Wolfgang Bosbach, agreed. “This is a sad example of how the conception of the law from another legal and cultural environment is taken as the basis for our own notion of law,” he said on Wednesday.

Hmmm, realize that the Western judge is not even considering that public order laws are applied to every human being in the territory where he is judging? And what is more a “public order law” than the obligation of defending someone who is BEATEN by his/her partner?

Terrible.

Muslims, threats and niqab

Filed under: Alemania,Derechos Humanos,Spain — Nora @ 12:56 pm

From Deustche Welle:

A group of former Muslims in Germany who formed a non-religious society have been sent threatening letters, pronouncing them “fit for death.”

Mina Ahadi, an Iranian-born woman, founded the society in Cologne with 10 sympathizers several weeks ago and called it the National Council of Ex-Muslims. At the end of February she called a news conference in Berlin to publicly pronounce herself non-Islamic.

The police have assigned plainclothes bodyguards to protect her ever since.

“I’m a target,” said Ahadi, 50. She said members of her society had received letters telling them they would be shot in the back. When she went online with a fierce attack on Islamic organizations, somebody circulated a statement suggesting she was fit to be killed, she said.

[…] Referring to practices many Germans believe are typical of Islam, she said, “We’ll stop honor killings, stop people being stoned to death… We want to make clear that the three million to three and a half million people from Islamic nations who live in Germany are people first and foremost, and should not be branded primarily as ‘Muslim,’” she said.

Ahadi — whose husband was executed by the Islamic rulers of Iran —is demanding that Germany do more to help women and girls, who she claims are oppressed, even in Germany, by “political Islam.”

“The girls are not allowed to have boyfriends,” she said. “They are forced to marry. They have to wear headscarves. If they get pregnant and are not married, people call them sluts,” she said.

Nur Gabbari, 40, a former Muslim and refugee from Iran who is on the society’s committee, said he knew it was dangerous to form such a group.

But we cannot just stand on the sidelines and watch what religion is doing to people,” he said.

And this is the real problem: is the West doing what is necessary to stop “political Islam“? The answer is NO. And why? That is the real question.

At least the German police is helping them…

It is very curious that after some politicians and people have denounced the use of niqab in Spain (h/t: Chesk), the leftists have run to point out that “nuns wear a veil” -without considering even that no security problems arise from that fact- and that “people who oppose both niqab and burqa were meddling in another religion“, without even considering that, if you come to the West, you have to know that there are some requisites, including security ones, who must be fulfilled by all, even immigrants. They have even protested about schools who oblige their pupils to wear skirt!! Of course, if you were a skirt, people are going to have difficulty in identifying you and a terrorist can be dressed as that to escape policemen in controls ;D….

Muslim women using niqad in Alcobendas, Madrid. According to the paper edition of ElMundo newspaper, they go to check at a counter where they do not have to speak to anyone and, when asked who were they coming from, they rushed away, although afterwards, they murmured “Saudi Arabia”. They don’t know Spanish at all. Conclusion: what a marvellous integration!!

Muslim women, one using hijab and other using niqab, in Vic (Barcelona).

So, I insist: why are there so many Westerners who hate so much Western values and do not defend them at all? (more…)
