French City Refuses To Honor Slain Police Officer for Fear of Offending Muslims


Reported By Lisa Payne-Naeger | October 17, 2018 at 5:04pm

Under any other circumstances, a law enforcement officer who sacrificed his life to save that of another, whether or not it was in the line of duty, would be widely heralded as a hero. No question.

Arnaud Beltrame was a lieutenant colonel with the National Police in Marseille, France, and he lost his life in the line of duty. He was killed by 25-year-old Radouane Lakdim, a Moroccan-born Muslim terrorist.

Beltrame was certainly a man worthy of honors. But according to Voice of Europe, recognition for his bravery doesn’t seem to be in the cards.

CNN reported the incidents that led to Beltrame’s death in March.

“Interior Minister Gérard Collomb said the officer, a lieutenant colonel with the National Police, offered to exchange himself for one of the female hostages being held inside the Super U supermarket in Trèbes.

“When the officer went inside the supermarket, shots were fired. The lieutenant colonel had his phone on, so police could hear his interactions with the gunman, Collomb said. As soon as they heard gunfire, police went in,” reported CNN.

The standoff lasted more than three hours. Lakdim was killed by police and Beltrame died later of stab wounds.

American Military News reported that the 15th district in Marseille is said to have a significant population of jihadists. Just five months prior to Beltrame’s death, two women were killed by an ISIS terrorist in the same area.

“ISIS-linked news outlet, Amaq News Agency, published a statement in which they referred to the terrorist as a ‘soldier’ of ISIS who carried out their attack on a U.S. ally involved in efforts against ISIS in Syria and Iraq,” AMN wrote.

President Emmanuel Macron had high praises for the slain officer.

“Our country has suffered an Islamist terrorist attack. We’ve paid the price of the danger of the terrorist threat in blood for several years,” Macron said, according to CNN.

“The forces of order intervened with remarkable speed, both to contain the individual who hid away with his hostages, to help one of the victims who was still alive who he had left in the surrounding area. He has saved lives, and done his role and his country proud.”

So, what problem could there be in honoring such a brave man?

In March, the people of France were attempting to honor the bravery of Beltrame after his death and preparing for a “day of tribute,” but sentiments soon changed. As officials in Marseille worked to make a memorial to Beltrame, they hit a road block. Political correctness run amok.

“Attempts to name the city’s 15th district after Beltrame were recently rejected over concerns of offending the Muslim community, AMN reported.

Marseille’s 7th district National Rally mayor Stephane Ravier said the proposal was refused during a town council meeting. Ravier exclaimed that it was the first time the “Leftist elected officials, socialist and communist” refused such an honor in the 15th district. He claimed their excuse for denying Beltrame a place of honor was because they were afraid of offending the Muslim population and possible retaliation for their public praise of Beltrame.

“Leftist elected officials, socialist and communist, refused that a place in the 15th district be named after Arnaud Beltrame, in the first time, they’ve said, under fallacious pretext, that this place wasn’t prestigious enough, before telling the truth in these terms: we are on the field, we witnessed that the population has changed and if we give the name of Arnaud Beltrame in this district, the population will take that as a provocation,” Ravier said, according to Voice of Europe.

Americans should take a swift lesson from this politically correct travesty in France. Such a sad ending to a tragic story for Beltrame, a true hero. He deserves better. And so do the people of France who are living under the threat of terror.

Invasion: Sweden Unable to Process Migrant Rape Cases Because of Backlog


By Benjamin Arie | January 29, 2018 at 5:44pm

“Diversity is our strength,” or so the left constantly claims. That bumper-sticker view of the world is used to justify endless immigration from decidedly non-Western cultures… but now reality is starting to set in.

Sweden’s experiment with mass Islamic immigration is definitely bringing “diversity,” but it’s much more violent than liberals want to admit.

The left-leaning European country “has been experiencing an unprecedented surge of gang shootings, bombings and sexual assaults,” reported the  U.K. Times.

“In Malmö, where a fifth of the 340,000 inhabitants are under 18, children as young as 14 roam the streets with Kalashnikov assault rifles and bulletproof vests,” the newspaper reported. “The average age of gang members is 22, the vast majority of them hailing from migrant families.”

The situation is becoming so bad that Swedish officials are now admitting that they don’t have the resources to investigate rapes immediately, because violent gang crimes are so prevalent.

“We are forced to choose between two evils,” police told the Times.

Government officials and the media may try to dance around the issue, but the simple fact is that much of the rising crime is linked to groups of immigrants, many from Muslim nations.

“For a long time the Swedish establishment played down the decay of immigrant-dominated suburbs, but it can no longer ignore the explosion of violence,” reported The Times.

“Statistics published last week revealed the percentage of women who reported being victims of sex crimes rose from 1.4% in 2012 to 4.1% in 2016. In 2014 a study on the geography of outdoor rape in Stockholm found two-thirds of the suspects were non-Swedish citizens,” the paper elaborated.

In many ways, what is happening in Sweden is a microcosm of trends here in the United States.

Liberals who claim to stand for feminism also promote the mass importation of cultures that have appalling track records on women’s rights — and the same leftists who let them in are then “shocked” at the results.

“Our government declared itself the world’s first feminist government, yet they have quietly abandoned women,” stated Paulina Neuding, a Swedish author who is speaking out about the impact of mass immigration.

“There is mounting evidence that large-scale migration of men from extremely patriarchal cultures is limiting women’s freedom,” she continued. Let’s be honest:

It really isn’t that hard to understand. Despite the posturing of liberals, not all cultures are the same, and not every group of people has the same values. Some are closely compatible with Western values and do well in countries like Sweden.

Many others, however, have no desire to assimilate but see the West as a target to exploit and dominate. It’s the right of every country to carefully decide whom to let in, and whom to politely — or forcefully — turn away.

This may not look nice on a bumper sticker, but it is reality.

As UK Slams Trump for “Islamaphobic Tweets,” Their Terror Levels Hit Record High


Posted By V Saxena | November 30, 2017 at 10:28am

Despite complaints from U.K. officials about President Donald Trump’s decision this week to retweet the allegedly “anti-Muslim” video posts of a British anti-Islam activist, evidence suggests both Trump and the activist he retweeted have valid points about radical Islam’s presence in Europe — and especially the U.K.

In a stunning report published Wednesday, The Guardian revealed that “the number of people arrested for terrorism-linked offences (in the U.K.) rose by more than two-thirds to a record 379 in the 12 months to June — one of the most intense periods for terrorist attacks in recent history.”

Of those 379 suspects, nearly a third were eventually charged with terrorism offenses, while nearly 18 percent still face further investigation.

The publication of this report occurred on the same day that Trump retweeted three video posts from British activist Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of British First, a reportedly “far-right” political party that opposes mass migration.

One of the video posts showed radical Muslims pushing a teenage boy off a roof and then beating him to death, while the second video showed Muslims destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary. According to The Daily Wire, the first video was shot in Egypt five years ago, while the second video was shot in Syria one year later. In a third video retweet, a Dutch boy could be seen beating up another Dutch boy, though Fransen mistakenly claimed one of the boys was Muslim.

Following the U.S. president’s retweets, a number of prominent British officials condemned Trump, including Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London.

British Prime Minister Theresa May chimed in as well, decrying Britain First as “a hateful organization” that “seeks to sow division and hate and mistrust in our communities,” according to ABC News. “It stands in opposition to our fundamental values we hold as a country.”

But as noted by Robert Spencer, a Fox News contributor known for his criticisms of Islam, those castigating Trump seemed more focused on whom he retweeted versus the actual content of the tweets.

“I have not seen any Muslim spokesmen say, ‘There is a problem (in Islam) we need to deal with,’” he said in a statement to Breitbart. “They are all just criticizing Trump. … (Former President Barack) Obama did everything he could to whitewash the image of Islam — Trump is calling attention to atrocities that are committed in the name of name of Islam.”

As well as the rise of radicalism across the world, but especially so in the U.K.

Putin Makes Dangerous Move, Sends 3 Warships to NATO Waters


URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/russia-copies-trump-armada-ships/

Three Russian warships armed with long-range cruise missiles have been spotted in the Baltic Sea off the coast of Latvia, in what appeared to be a challenge to President Donald Trump, Europe and NATO. The Latvian Army posted to its Twitter account that the Russian ships Liven 551, Serpukhov 603 and the Morshansk 824 were seen in the sea on Sunday. Newsweek reported that the ships were as close as four nautical miles from country’s coast.

The warships were initially deployed to St. Petersburg, Russia, for a Victory Day celebration marking the end of World War II. But the ships left those waters early — Victory Day is May 9 — and headed toward the Baltic Sea, according to the the U.K. Express, which translated Russian news agency Fontanka.

The purpose for the warships in the region was not immediately clear. However, the paper reported that the presence of the vessels was most likely in response to the arrival of the USS Carney in the Baltic Sea, which is also armed with cruise missiles.

The U.S. Navy posted to its Twitter account on Monday that the Carney had crossed seas near Denmark last week, adding that the vessel was “conducting a patrol in support of U.S. national security interests in Europe.”

Russian warships suddenly moving into the area — especially after being redirected from a holiday celebration — certainly looks like a response to the U.S. military being there.

Newsweek reported that Mikhail Nenashev, a representative for a Russian naval supporters group, confirmed to Russian news agency RIA Novosti that some deployments were diverted and would not take part in the celebration. He did not elaborate any further.

A Russian source who did not wish to be identified also told Newsweek that fewer ships would participate in the celebration but would not confirm if any changes were related to the presence of the USS Carney.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, no stranger to military provocations, is apparently testing Latvia, which is a member of NATO and the European Union.

Putin would be wise to keep his fleet where it belongs: in port.

Shock Vid: Pretty Reporter Attacked on Air Covering Refugees… Anchor Watching Says “Oh, God”


URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/reporter-attacked-refugees-anchor/

Coexist and welcome everybody with open arms, regardless of their background. That liberal sentiment may look fine on bumper stickers, but what happens when a group of people has absolutely no interest in “coexisting” with you?

A young television reporter in Italy just found the answer, but both her safety and worldview were put at risk in the process. Francesca Parisella is a corespondent for Matrix Channel 5, based in Rome. According to BizPac Review, she and her cameraman were covering a story about African refugees camped out at a Rome train station.

Instead of being welcomed and granted enlightening interviews, however, Parisella and her camera operator were forced to flee in terror.

“Their hope is especially to reach Milan … and then to move to Northern Europe,” the reporter began to explain to the camera while live on the air, according to a translation provided with the YouTube video. “It’s important to know that this reception –“

Parisella never finished that sentence. Her tone shifted to fear and an assault began to unfold.

You can watch the clip here (WARNING: Some viewers may find these images disturbing):

“What’s happening, Francesca?” asked Nicola Porro, the Matrix 5 anchor monitoring the live stream.

Parisella and the cameraman struggled to put words together while running away from the scene.

“They assaulted us, Nicola!” she exclaimed.

Her next words were directed at the people on the street.

“What do you want?” she shouted, still running. “What do you want? You’re crazy!” Then she screamed.

The crew back at the news station could only watch in horror as the incident continued.

“Oh, God, Francesca,” Porro yelled. “Get out of there!”

Parisella and her cameraman barely managed to escape unharmed, thanks to a taxi driver who reportedly pulled the pair off the street and into the safety of his cab.

“Francesca is upset but she is fine. They destroyed the camera and shook the operator,” Porro explained to viewers several minutes later. “Thanks to a taxi driver, if not, it would be a lot worse.”

“The police told me that I was very lucky,” the reporter confirmed on Twitter. Then, referring to the taxi driver, she added, “Roberto saved my life.”

There been no official confirmation that the people who attacked Francesca Parisella were immigrants, but her statements and the video of the incident strongly suggest that this was the case.

It is unfortunately not the first time — and likely not the last — that refugees have attacked people in a country where they are guests. Not long ago, a Muslim immigrant attempted to stab a woman at a camp in Austria. A similar event occurred in Germany. Here in the United States, numerous attacks have been carried out by immigrants and refugees from Muslim countries. A Somali refugee carried out a stabbing attack in Ohio just months ago, while a shocking terrorist attack that killed 14 people at a Christmas party in California involved a radical Muslim immigrant.

It shouldn’t take dramatic attacks on journalists for the world to realize a simple fact: Not all cultures share Western values, and you cannot “coexist” with people who see you as a sexual object, enemy or target.

Mass Rape Epidemic Sweeping Europe’s Refugee Camps – America Next?


waving flagAuthored By Dave Jolly February 14, 2017

rape crisis in refugee camp

Barack Obama and his fellow liberals pushed to welcome thousands more refugees into the United States. Conservatives have pushed against the idea, stating the obvious dangers and concerns over terrorists hiding among them.you-mean-rapefugees

Those concerns were verified recently by Syria’s dictatorial President Bashar Assad who spoke with Yahoo News in Damascus. In speaking about the 4.8 million Syrian people who have fled his war-torn and terrorist filled nation, Assad indicated that terrorists are flocking to the US while the liberal courts block his executive order on immigration.

According to Yahoo News:

“In an exclusive interview with Yahoo News at a presidential office in Damascus, Assad said President Trump’s freeze on admitting refugees from his country — part of an executive order that has drawn widespread protests and is being challenged in federal court — ‘is an American issue’ on which he would not take sides. But asked if some of those who fled are ‘aligned with terrorists,’ Assad quickly replied, ‘Definitely’.”

“‘You can find it on the Net,’ Assad went on: ‘Those terrorists in Syria, holding the machine gun or killing people, they [appear as] peaceful refugees in Europe or in the West.’ He said he couldn’t estimate how many there might be, but he added that ‘you don’t need a significant number to commit atrocities.’ He noted that the 9/11 attacks were pulled off by fewer than 20 terrorists ‘out of maybe millions of immigrants in the United States. So it’s not about the number, it’s about the quality, it’s about the intentions’.”picture3

However, terrorists in the most common sense and understanding of the term, is not the only concern that should be considered as a good reason to block the flood of refugees and immigrants into the country. Based on reports coming out of refugee camps in Europe, they also pose a personal danger to millions of Americans, mostly our women and children.

One report comes from The Christian Post:

“A mass rape epidemic is taking place inside the Dunkirk refugee camp in Northern France where women and children are being assaulted by sex traffickers, according to reports.”RAPEUGEES

The Guardian reports that accounts from volunteers, medics, refugees and other officials have exposed how women and children are forced to have sex by traffickers in return for provisions and an offer of passage to the U.K…”

“‘Sexual assault, violence and rape are all far too common. Minors are assaulted and women are raped and forced to pay for smuggling with their bodies,’ a volunteer coordinator said.”

“‘Although the showers are meant to be locked at night, particularly dangerous individuals in the camp have keys and are able to take the women to the showers in the night to force themselves on them. This has happened to women I know very well’.”RAPEUGEES

“‘A 12-year-old girl was groomed in the camp by a man well over twice her age. When she no longer wanted to speak with him because his behavior toward her had become so obscene, he threatened her. A 13-year-old boy ended up returning to his home country having been raped in the camp’.”RAPE

Here’s a report from Germany on the issue of Arab refugees and rape:

“German authorities are investigating reports that dozens of Arab men sexually assaulted female patrons at bars and restaurants in downtown Frankfurt on New Year’s Eve 2016.”

“The attacks, in which mobs of migrants harassed women in a ‘rape game’ known as ‘taharrush gamea’ (Arabic for ‘collective sexual harassment’), are said to have mirrored the mass sexual assaults of women in Cologne and other German cities on New Year’s Eve 2015.”

“A report published by Bild on February 5 alleged that some 900 migrants, many of whom were intoxicated, gathered at the central train station in Frankfurt on December 31, 2016. Police blocked their access to the Mainufer, a downtown pedestrian area along the Main River and the site of a large New Year’s celebration, so the migrants walked to the Fressgasse, another downtown pedestrian zone known for its restaurants and bars.”

“Witnesses said that groups of up to 50 migrants of ‘Arab or North African’ appearance entered several establishments and began sexually assaulting female patrons. They also stole handbags and jackets, threw bottles and firecrackers, and, for good measure, finished their victims’ drinks.”American women respond

These are not isolated cases, but a growing trend taking place in many refugee camps and areas of Europe. Our friends in the United Kingdom have shared that rape and sexual assault of British women and girls has drastically risen in areas with large populations of Muslims. Many Muslim men believe that they have the right to rape women and girls and that the women and girls do not have the right to refuse them. Under sharia law, men have the right to punish (beat and murder) their female relatives who have been raped by other men. They believe it brings shame on the family, but only from the sake of the women’s actions, not the actions of the men.

There is no doubt that there is a mass rape epidemic sweeping through the refugee camps in Europe and one can’t help but wonder if America is next with all of the refugees that Barack Obama and liberal courts have and are allowing into the United States.america-are-you-paying-attention

I wonder how safe these liberal bleeding hearts who are defending the alleged rights of immigrants and refugees, would feel walking through the neighborhoods with high concentrations of refugees and immigrants? Would they let their daughters walk alone in those same neighborhoods? If they were made aware of what’s happening in Europe, would they still be so warm and welcoming as they are now? Would they still favor these possibly dangerous foreigners over the rights and safety of the American people – especially American women and children?american-children-before-refugees

Terrifying Report: ISIS has “Increasingly Sophisticated” Network in Europe, Ready to Attack at Any Time!


waving flagBy Constitution.com September 7, 2016

islam-in-europe-633x450

From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

The Islamic State is operating a vast and well-supported network of terrorists in Europe that are ready to launch attacks at any given moment, according to documents obtained by CNN.

The cable network received a massive trove of documents from European investigators that detailed ISIS’s network of terrorists across the European continent. A portion of the documents revealed that the perpetrators of the deadly Paris attacks in November 2015 had planned to engage in several additional follow up attacks by recruiting more operatives. Additionally, documents show that the ISIS network is still active and could engage in further attacks in the near future.

“ISIS is increasing its international attack planning,” Paul Cruickshank, the editor of the CTC Sentinel, a West Point Combating Terrorism Center publication, told CNN. “It’s increasingly sophisticated in the way it does this. It’s set up an intricate, logistical support system for these terrorists … to launch these terrorist attacks.”

Investigators have obtained intelligence that they believe shows the terrorist group’s next target is the U.K. An official told CNN that there is strong evidence suggesting ISIS operatives have increased their infiltration of the U.K in recent months.

In addition to revealing new aspects of the terror group’s European operations, the papers confirm other aspects regarding its logistical support system, especially regarding communications. Investigators have confirmed that the use of encrypted messaging apps like Telegram and WhatsApp have been the key to ISIS’s terror attack plans.

“Encrypted messaging groups have the potential to revolutionize terror plot planning by allowing entire cells to coordinate in real time without compromising themselves,” noted Cruickshank.Islam is NOT

One of ISIS’s favorite apps allows a user to pick their own phone number, effectively disguising the location of their calls. Investigators have also discovered that ISIS cells operate independently, with handlers only giving operatives limited information and funding for each phase of an operation. Additionally, the operatives will often share tips with each other based on what has worked for more experienced recruits in the past.

The documents show that despite losing territory in Syria and Iraq, ISIS has a complicated and capable network of terrorists operating abroad. Various experts and policymakers have expressed concern for some time that as the group loses its so-called caliphate, it may revert to its traditional terrorist roots and increase its number of attacks abroad.culture of deceit and lies
