My Superficial Take On The Rocket Terror Over Israel

My channel is devoted to German and EU politics and, yet, the assault on Western land cannot remain undiscussed. The ramifications of Middle Eastern politics for Europe and America are bigger than many people think. I understand and respect America’s desire for “a little me-time” (Ann Coulter phrase). I respect it the more because of Europe’s inaction over the past decades and I respect it because Americans, particularly those who protect us Westerners with their service in the US military, deserve to be involved in as few cases as possible and by a political leadership that they can trust. We don’t have a trustworthy leadership in the West right now. Naturally, I don’t ask for any involvement and, thus, this is not what the video is about.

Yet, the idea that the Middle East has nothing to do with us while Muslims keep pouring into our countries must be contested. Linda Sarsour, Ilhan Omar and others are constantly lecturing us about our alleged “racism”. And, often enough, the money for the woke brainwashing comes from camouflage outfits of the Muslim Brotherhood, the mothership of the Hamas terror group which is launching rockets from the Gaza strip right now.

This is an off-the-cuff talk. So I don’t go through rocket types, terror groups and leadership quotes to link the violence to the funders in Tehran.

Comedian Kay Ray Cancelled For Telling A Joke

The Schmidt theatre in Hamburg dismisses one of its stars for a joke. It is just the latest cancel culture absurdity and I will run you though the joke and provide its cultural context. Some waiters did not like to hear it and complained to the owners of the place.

Comedy used to be equally irreverant to all groups and Mr Ray does not wish to apologize. He insists on his right to express himself and pledges to continue the production of art worth its name. Despite these dire corona times, which are difficult for many industries and as such also for stand-up artists, he is now searching for a new opportunity

The joke text in the original:
Kay Ray macht Witze über den Islam und wird gefeuert

Feminist Alice Schwarzer And The Left’s Attitude To Islam

Alice Schwarzer is the best known feminist in Germany. She is one of only few who are granted to speak critically of Islam in the larger public. The story she presents is therefore one of supposed “conservative Islam” and a good “liberal Islam”. She has her own fair share of blind spots. Left-wing Muslims may occasionally turn against the headscarf doctrine, but they are united with their Western comrades in their fight against America. Surprised that the Iranian revolution 1979 brought what it announced to bring, their major concern is still “(neo-)colonialism” and not freedom. A friend of late French authors Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, Schwarzer also fails to see how imposing postmodernism on Islam and weaponizing the faith against the West is the actual left-wing concern about Muslims.

Catholic Missionary Guy Pagès Sees His Wikipedia Entry Scrubbed and Twitter Account Threatened

Guy Pagès has a mission that is both ordinary and extraordinary. His call is to save the souls of men for his faith and he specialised in converting Muslims.

This is not only the space where Christian and Muslim culture clash, but where democrats and Social Justice Warriors can lose it.

Leaving Islam is still considered a sin worthy of death by many Muslims, not giving one’s all to rescue souls is a sin worthy of eternal punishment for some Christians.

However, a battlefield of ideas is provided by our cultural framework that we espouse, the field of democracy. Democrats like myself, who are neither Muslim nor Christian, are there to pick a side, the side of impartiality.

Muslims have all the rights in the world to try whatever they can think of to convert the whole country to Islam. The same right, however, must be guaranteed for Christians. The faith with the more convincing ideas may win more followers, and eventually even all. The belief systems may change and adapt in the same way Christianity and Islam have changed in the past, in the long process of their expansion.

As long as both sides abstain from violence that intellectual battle is welcome in the reign of a democracy. Non-violence, however, can only be guaranteed when both sides get their voices heard. This is the point where Social Justice Warriors fail our culture. Today, all battles of ideas are fought over the internet as Guy Pagès correctly acknowledges. Muslims have their presence already there and so does Guy Pagès.

While the Social Justice Warriors take no umbrage with Muslims who try to convert Christians, the legitimacy of  Guy Pagès presence, however, is constantly questioned.

We are now in the ludicrous situation that his French Wikipedia entry was deleted while the short English language stub is not. And yet the Social Justice Warriors’ thoroughness must not be underestimated. Twitter has already warned to put ‘restrictions’ on Guy Pagès’ account.

He vows to continue his work against all odds. May the Lord be with him…and with the Muslims.
