Barcelona: Two cops run over at jihad attack roadblock, driver shot dead

More vehicular jihad, as the jihad battles continue in Barcelona.
“BREAKING: Two police officers are run over at Barcelona terror attack roadblock as driver is shot dead,” by Dave Burke, Mailonline, August 17, 2017:
Two police officers have been run over at a roadblock in Barcelona just hours after a terror attack left at least 13 people dead.
A white Ford Focus broke through the roadblock, set up at entrances and exits to the city, and collided with officers and left them injured.
Police said shots were fired between occupants of the car and officers.
The driver was later shot dead in a shootout with the police in Sant Just Desvern, on the outskirts of the city, local media said.
Just hours before, at least 13 people were killed and more than 80 injured after a van ploughed into pedestrians in the busy tourist street.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack. Terror police are also reported to have arrested two suspects.
Police launched ‘Operation Cage’ to capture those responsible for the attack and also denied early reports that hostages were being held in a bar in the city.
El Pais reported detained suspect Driss Oukabir is a Moroccan citizen, born in Aghbala, 180 miles south east of the capital Rabat, and is a resident in Spain.
He has previously spent time in prison in Figueres, 85 miles north east of Barcelona, being released in 2012, the newspaper said.
He arrived again from Morocco on Sunday, anti-terrorist sources told the newspaper, having previously been in Madrid earlier in the year.
However, TVE1 reported that Oukabir is from Marseilles, France, and lives in Ripoll in Girona, north of Barcelona, citing a Facebook page….

After Barcelona Van Attack, Leaders Must Condemn Islamic Supremacism

 
13 are dead in the latest Muslim terror attack. This time, Muslim terrorists ran over pedestrians with a van in Barcelona. This has strong echoes of previous Muslim terror attacks in Europe. And the death toll may still rise.
 Driss Oukabir, the Muslim terror suspect in the attack, is apparently from Marseilles, France. A city that has become notorious as a hub for Muslim terror. More attackers have apparently fled into a Turkish restaurant.
We will, no doubt, know all the details soon enough. And the media will pretend that  Driss Oukabir and his comrades were mentally ill or aberrations. They're not.
The same standard that was applied in Charlottesville must apply here.
Leaders must unambiguously condemn Islamic Supremacism as the poisonous ideology that is the cause of these attacks and others that have recently killed hundreds of people. They must utterly disavow and denounce the Islamic theology and political ideology behind these attacks. They must pledge to combat it by uprooting it from our cities.
If they fail to do so, they are complicit in the attacks.
Any effort to shift the blame to psychological factors, to defend Islamic Supremacism by claiming that most advocates of political Islam are moderate, to shift the focus from the victims to supposed fears of an anti-Muslim backlash must be denounced as a shameful collaboration with Islamic Supremacism.
And must not be tolerated.

UPDATE: 13 dead, dozens injured -- TWO ARMED MEN ENTERED A RESTAURANT IN BARCELONA AFTER TRUCK CRASHED INTO CROWD

‘There Are Injured’: Truck Hits Crowd in Central Barcelona, Police Evacuate Popular Tourism Spot

Twitter.com

Spanish police have confirmed a truck has struck a crowd on a popular tourist street in central Barcelona, with local media claiming there are up to a dozen injured in the “serious incident”.

According to reports, the van involved in the incident left the road and entered the pedestrianized area of the walk and drove through the crowds until it crashed into a kiosk
Police evacuated the La Rambla pedestrianized street in Barcelona Thursday afternoon, as shop keepers closed their roller-shutters with customers inside to protect them from events outside, reports local newspaper La Vanguardia. All local railway stations have been closed.
An English-language tweet by the official account of the Catalan police declared there had been a “massive” incident by a “person with a van” and that “there are injured”. Subsequent messages in Spanish instruct followers to avoid the La Rambla area and for civilians to not obstruct the work of the emergency services.
Police have gone door to door in the area ordering businesses to shut their doors and to keep customers inside. A tweet from the Catalan emergency services account instructs people to “stay inside” until told otherwise by officers.
Video shared on social media shows a stampede of pedestrians away from the scene after the event unfolded.

No Go Zones: ‘No Whites Allowed After 8 PM’ Graffiti Appears in Birmingham, England

More evidence of the creeping establishment of de facto No Go Zones in Britain has emerged in Birmingham, after a message reading ‘NO Whites Allowed After 8 pm’ appeared on the side of a building in the inner-city neighbourhood of Alum Rock.

The Birmingham Mail traced the graffiti to the corner of Farndon Road after the image was shared in a Facebook post — since deleted — by a page called Brumz Updates.
Local councillor Ali Khan, a Labour Party representative, told the paper that similar messages had been scrawled on stickers and affixed to lampposts in the nearby district of Saltley around three years ago.

The graffiti is just the latest in a series of anti-white incidents in England recently.A lecturer from Stratford College was punched in the face and knocked into a freezing canal in January for “being white” by a group of Pakistani youths in January.
A white women was racially abused and had her nose and cheekbone shattered by three “Asian” men near the Coventry Skydome in March.
Three Muslim men were handed short sentences for approaching strangers in the streets of Liverpool and demanding “Why aren’t you a Muslim?” before attacking them in July 2017.
Birmingham has undergone rapid demographic changes in recent decades, with “mass immigration” being the previous Labour government’s preferred means of “[making] the UK truly multicultural”, according to then immigration minister Barbara Roche’s speechwriter Andrew Neather.
The city’s population was only 53.14 per cent White British at the time of the 2011 census — down from 65.64 per cent in 2001 — and natives may no longer be a majority as of the present day. Previous estimates by the University of Manchester had suggested that such a change is expected no later than 2020.
Researchers for the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) found that the white working class in Birmingham felt areas of the city were turning into No Go Zones as long ago as 2009.
Dr Mohammed Naseem, the chairman of Birmingham Central Mosque, said at the time that the then Labour government was at fault:“No community should be made to feel like they are being treated unfairly and if the Government do think immigration is a problem then perhaps they should take a look at themselves because they allowed these people in in the first place.
“No community should be made to feel like they are being treated unfairly and if the Government do think immigration is a problem then perhaps they should take a look at themselves because they allowed these people in in the first place,” he said.
“They did not just land here from heaven, the Government created a problem for itself, and is now dealing with consequences like this.”
The situation does not appear to have improved since the Tories took office in 2010, with EU-based Islamists taking advantage of the bloc’s Free Movement immigration regime to resettle in Britain — seen as a soft touch — after countries like France began implementing anti-extremism measures, such as prohibiting full veils in public.

German Scientists: Drug Public with Oxytocin to ‘Promote the Acceptance and Integration of Migrants’

German scientists have suggested that a combination of drugs and “peer influence” could make Europeans more amenable to accepting large numbers of migrants in their midst, following a shocking new study at the University of Bonn.

The study, originally published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) and later reported by Science Daily, involved 183 subjects, each given 50 euros which they could donate to either migrants or locals in need.
Researchers from the University of Bonn, the University of Lübeck and the Laureate Institute for Brain Research in the U.S. were “surprised” to discover that people donated around 20 per cent more to migrants than to needy locals to begin with, and when drugged with oxytocin — the so-called ‘love hormone’ — participants already well-disposed to migrants gave even more generously.
People who had “negative attitudes towards migrants” were not affected — but, when they were shown how generous others had been towards to migrants in combination with the drugs, they “donated up to 74 per cent more”.
Rene Hurlemann, a professor at the university’s department of psychiatry, concluded that: “The combined enhancement of oxytocin and peer influence” was able to diminish what he described as “selfish motives.”
“Given the right circumstances, oxytocin may help promote the acceptance and integration of migrants into Western cultures,” he mused.
An estimated 1.2 million migrants had flooded into Germany by the end of 2016, after Chancellor Angela Merkel said there was “no limit” to the number of “refugees” the country would take the previous year.
Only around three per cent of the new arrivals had found work as of December 2016, with the Finance Ministry admitting to costs of at least 20 billion euros over the course of the year.
Germany also experienced an uptick in crime and terrorism, with the Heritage Foundation reporting that 54 per cent of terror plots in the country have involved migrants since the onset of the crisis — including the Berlin massacre in which a bogus asylum seeker from Tunisia rammed a hijacked lorry into a packed Christmas market.
Despite appearing to concede that her “open door” policy had been a mistake last year, Chancellor Merkel told the UN Migration Agency as recently as a few days ago that the European Union “could cope with” at least another 40,000 arrivals.
This is despite the fact that tens of thousands of genuine refugees based in countries neighboring Syria have actually begun returning home since the Syrian government’s Russian-backed forces pushed the Islamist al-Nusra Front and other “rebels” from key strongholds such as East Aleppo.
In addition, the EU continues to struggle to force conservative governments in Central Europe to accept a share of the migrants already stranded in the EU’s border states since Western and Northern European governments began to change their minds about the influx.

Yair Netanyahu says the Left worse then neo-Nazis

Yair Netanyahu, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's offspring, weighed in on the controversy swirling over the violent events in Charlottesville, deeming the extreme left a far bigger threat to Israel then the neo-Nazis due to the rising popular support they receive among the American public.
"Let's put things in proportion." Netanyahu wrote on Facebook. "The neo-Nazis in Virginia hate me and my country, but they belong to the past. They are on their last breath."
"However, the Antifa and the Black Lives Matter movements, who hate my country and America, are growing stronger and becoming dominant in US universities and in public life," added Netanyahu.
Condemnations were swift to pour in, with MK Mickey Rosenthal calling him 'Netanyahu Youth,' a spin off the notorious Hitler Youth. Rosenthal later retracted his remarks and apologized.
Netanyahu was responding to the recent events in Charlottesville, where white supremacists, many of them heavily armed and bearing Nazi flags, had descended on the town for a rally titled 'Unite the Right,' and were met by radical 'Antifa' leftists.
Videos appeared to show the police standing off to the side as the violence raged between the two sides, only stepping in after 20-year-old James Fields, of Ohio barreled his silver Dodge Charger into a group protesting the rally and killing 32 year old Heather Heyer.
Numerous Israeli politicians furiously denounced the events in Charlottesville. “I am outraged by expressions of antisemitism, neo-Nazism and racism,” tweeted Netanyahu. “Everyone should oppose this hatred.”

Al-Qaeda Urges Muslims to Derail Trains in Britain and U.S.

 

Al-Qaeda’s glossy recruitment magazine has urged Muslims to attack trains in Britain and the U.S., claiming railway tracks are a weak spot in the West, and gives detailed instruction on how to sabotage lines.

Safeguarding thousands of miles of track is “practically impossible” and attacks would cause “great damage and destruction” without the need for explosives, the terrorist group said in the 17th edition of Inspire, which is “dedicated” to train attacks.
Security forces in the UK and U.S. are reportedly taking the threats seriously, and the terrorists hope Western nations will be forced to tighten security around rail travel as they have for air transportation since 9/11.
The magazine opens: “In this edition we will – by the will of Allah – present a simple method for targeting trains.
“It involves derailing a train from the railroad by placing an object on the tracks. And its purpose will be changing the direction of the wheels and thus derailing the railroad car from the tracks.”
 
The magazine includes intricate diagrams on how to make “derailment tools” and is filled with statistics detailing the vulnerability of railways and trains.
The terrorists hail the information as giving “simple easy to design tools” which will “allow a large scope of Muslims in the west to be able to implement and apply these methods”.
The magazine reads: “America’s railroads are estimated to be one third of the world’s railway. So how can they protect 240,000 km of railroad… it is practically impossible.
“The same goes to Britain [with] 18,500 km and France, with 29,473 km.
“It is a daunting and almost impossible task to protect the long railroad length, and yet one of the easiest to target. That may result [in] great damage and destruction on different levels.”
It added: “It is time that we instil fear and make them impose strict security measures to trains as they did with their air transportation.”
In a separate article, the magazine praises previous Islamist attacks on trains, including the 7/7 London tube bombings and the 2004 bombing of commuters in Madrid, Spain, where “many passengers [191] were killed even before boarding the train”.
British and U.S. intelligence agencies are understood to have taken the threat seriously, and are said to be “working closely” to combat it, The Telegraph reports.
Whitehall sources told the paper they are increasingly concerned that rail travel was “one area of public transport which is worryingly yet to be exploited”.
One source said the Armed Forces were prepared to support police and ambulance services if there was such an attack.
“It is a worrying indication of al-Qaeda’s continuing commitment to cause disruption to the way of life in Britain and in America,” the source said.

The Anti-Semitic Jewish Media

by Bruce Bawer
  • Almost everyone in a position to do something is a coward. Politicians continue to recite the mantra that "Muslims are today's Jews," even though in Europe today Muslims are far more often the tormentors than the tormented, and Jews lead the list of victims of public abuse.
  • Needless to say, the immigrants Trump wants to keep out of the U.S. are precisely the type who, in Europe, are currently Jew-bashing people like Stephen Miller -- and Rob Eshman. But Eshman doesn't want to think about this ticklish fact, which challenges his own simplistic, self-righteous pontifications.
  • Linda Sarsour is the very personification of stealth Islamization and an obvious anti-Semite. But as Davidson himself noted, she's acquired plenty of Jewish allies and defenders, "including Jeremy Ben-Ami, Mark Hetfield, Rabbi Jill Jacobs and Brad Lander."
For years now, Jews across western Europe have been the targets of harassment by Muslims. Police officers stand guard outside of synagogues. Recently, when I stayed in the Jewish Quarter in Rome, I couldn't help notice the presence of multiple police kiosks, each manned by an armed cop. Many Jews in European cities have long since ceased wearing yarmulkes or Stars of David. Jewish kids are instructed by their parents to avoid identifying themselves as Jews at school lest they be beaten up by their little Muslim friends.
Meanwhile, almost everyone in a position to do something is a coward. Politicians continue to recite the mantra that "Muslims are today's Jews," even though in Europe today Muslims are far more often the tormentors than the tormented, and Jews lead the list of victims of public abuse. Police prefer not to prosecute Muslim perpetrators for fear of being called "Islamophobes." Teachers don't want to deal with Muslim bullies in their classes for the same reason.
Yet you would hardly know this to read much of America's Jewish media. On August 2, the Jewish Journal ran a piece slamming Trump adviser Stephen Miller for dismissing (quite properly) the suggestion by CNN's Jim Acosta that the new immigration bill favoring English-speakers violated the "spirit" of Emma Lazarus's Statue of Liberty poem, "The New Colossus," and emphasizing, as if it had anything to do with the issue, that Miller himself is the great-grandson of Jewish immigrants. This was not the first time the Jewish Journal had gone after Miller for being a Jew who supports immigration reform. In March, another piece in that publication, headlined (I kid you not) "From Hebrew School to Halls of Power," noted that Miller was "a principal author of Trump's draconian immigration measures, including the executive order the president signed in late January targeting immigrants from Muslim-majority countries," even though "[t]hese politics are generally reviled in the liberal circles of his Jewish upbringing."
The big hit-job, however, came a year ago, when the editor-in-chief of the Jewish Journal, Rob Eshman, sneered at Miller for the way in which he "froth[ed] the mob" at Trump rallies over immigration. Eshman professed shock at the news that Miller is Jewish. How, he asked, could "this young anti-immigrant leader" be "the descendent of immigrants"? Eshman looked into Miller's family tree, and discovered that his maternal great-grandfather, seeking to escape persecution by Cossacks, fled Antopol (in present-day Belarus) and settled in Pennsylvania, where he founded a thriving business. And yet, thundered Eshman, Miller dares to serve as "Trump's anti-immigrant avatar." Imagine: "The great-grandson of a desperate refugee can grow up to shill for the demagogue bent on keeping desperate refugees like his great-grandfather out."

Needless to say, the immigrants Trump wants to keep out of the U.S. are precisely the type who, in Europe, are currently Jew-bashing people like Stephen Miller -- and Rob Eshman. But Eshman doesn't want to think about this ticklish fact, which challenges his own simplistic, self-righteous pontifications. No, better to demonize Miller as "an American Jew [who has] turn[ed] on immigrants," who has "tak[en] the side of people who... would have met your own great-grandparents at the docks with stones and spitballs," and who is "stoking anti-immigrant fear and hate, by calling for a ban on an entire religion."
As it happens, Trump has never sought to enact a ban on an entire religion, although the present situation in Europe certainly makes a good argument for such a ban (with ample room for sensible exceptions, of course).
On August 3, over at the Forward, formerly the Jewish Daily Forward, one Steven Davidson actually served up one of the most idiotic articles of the year, entitled "19 People Jews Should Worry About More Than Linda Sarsour." Sarsour, of course, is the devout, hijab-wearing, sharia-loving, Israel-boycotting Muslim who, since her high-profile appearance at the Women's March on the day after Trump's inauguration, has become a hero of feminism and of the left generally. Linda Sarsour is the very personification of stealth Islamization and an obvious anti-Semite. But as Davidson himself noted, she's acquired plenty of Jewish allies and defenders, "including Jeremy Ben-Ami, Mark Hetfield, Rabbi Jill Jacobs and Brad Lander."
As for Davidson, while finding some of her language "coarse and insensitive," he insists that criticism of her has "no basis in reality." In his piece, he encouraged readers to move from Sarsour and focus their concerns instead on 19 other people, including Louis Farrakhan, David Duke, the Ayatollah Khamenei, and the leaders of Hamas and Hezbollah. Well, I don't know about you, but I'm capable of hating all these other people while still having enough hate left for Linda Sarsour. (I'm also capable of noticing that nobody in the American mainstream is celebrating most of these other creeps, while Sarsour, under a Hillary Clinton administration, would probably have been in line for a Presidential Medal of Freedom.)
Also on the list, however, are White House counter-terrorism adviser Sebastian Gorka, whom Davidson smears as "a member of a far-right group founded by Nazis"; Trump strategist Steve Bannon, formerly of Breitbart, which "spew[s] xenophobic hate"; Milo Yiannopoulos, who although half-Jewish "disseminat[es] Jewish conspiratorial tropes"; and President Trump himself, whose crimes against the Jewish people, according to Davidson, include "[r]efus[al] to mention Jews on Holocaust Remembrance Day." Never mind that he has a Jewish daughter and grandchildren; we are supposed to believe that it is Trump, not Sarsour, who threatens Jews. Perhaps Davidson should have a little chat with some of the growing number of European Jews who are heading straight to Trump's America to escape Sarsour's coreligionists who, in countries run by politicians of whom Davidson doubtless approves, are being allowed to turn Europe once again into a place from which Jews feel compelled to flee.
