Croatian Mass in Munich Disrupted by Mentally Ill Person Shouting "Allahu Akbar"

The person of African descent who disrupted Mass in St Peter's Church in the Croatian Catholic parish in Munich on Saturday evening by shouting "Allahu Akbar" and throwing stones,

is mentally ill and not connected with terrorism, the Croatian Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs said on Sunday.

The man was shouting and throwing stones at the congregation and around the church, and the people fled in panic.

Twenty-five Croatian nationals were slightly injured in the confusion, the ministry told Hina, adding that police said that the man did not use firecrackers as some media reported.

Croatian media at home and abroad said that it was a middle-aged man who was shouting "Allahu Akbar", which led many of the believers to think that it was a terrorist attack.

As Notre Dame Burns, European Churches Are Vandalized, Defecated On, & Torched "Every Day"

In France, two churches are desecrated every day on average.

According to PI-News, a German news site, 1,063 attacks on Christian churches or symbols (crucifixes, icons, statues) were registered in France in 2018.

This represents a 17% increase compared to the previous year (2017), when 878 attacks were registered— meaning that such attacks are only going from bad to worse.

Similar reports are coming out of Germany. Four separate churches were vandalized and/or torched in March alone."In this country," PI-News explained,

"there is a creeping war against everything that symbolizes Christianity: attacks on mountain-summit crosses, on sacred statues by the wayside, on churches... and recently also on cemeteries."

“In 15-20 years Orbán won’t be alone”

“Hungary’s anti-migration policy serves as a model for other European countries”, Daniel Pipes, President of the Middle East Forum told Hungarian weekly Hetek.

“Your government decided to build a fence on the border and managed to finish it. This was a right and necessary decision because this is a national competence,

” Pipes said, adding that European voters are starting to understand the dangers of immigration and Islamisation.

According to Pipes, “civilisational parties” will rule everywhere in Europe in 15-20 years and “then Prime Minister Viktor Orban won’t be so alone”.

“Your government is doing something that not even Salvini, Kaczynski or Strache dares to do. For them Viktor Orban is a hero,” Pipes said.

Notre Dame fire was 2nd to hit an iconic French Catholic church in a month

The world watched in horror as Paris’ historic Notre Dame Cathedral erupted in flames Monday. It was the second fire to hit a historic French Catholic church in under a month.

Editor’s note: The initial version of this article contained information about vandalism in French churches.

The author believed it necessary to include it to point out the troubles that have recently plagued the Catholic churches of France.

The text stressed that vandalism had nothing to do with the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral. Upon review, we believe that although the article was factually correct, some readers may have found it insensitive.

That was not what RT was aiming for. Like the rest of the world, we grieve for the partial loss of the architectural masterpiece that is Notre Dame.

NATO Member Norway Admits It Cannot Defend Itself

The head of the Norwegian Armed Forces’ operational headquarters (FOH) has admitted that as a result of failing to upgrade the country’s military, Norway would not be able to defend itself in an attack.

Speaking to Norway’s state broadcaster NRK, Lieutenant-General Rune Jakobsen said, “If there is an attack in the classical sense, then we do not have the robustness that is necessary [to defend ourselves].” 

“The most serious issue is the size of the land,” Lt Gen Jakobsen said. “Reactivity, robustness, and endurance in all branches of defence are too low, and to be concrete:

The army is too small in relation to the tasks it has and what is expected of Norway and in NATO.”

Lt Gen Jakobsen said in his assessment that Norway needs two new warships, two new submarines, and a better plan for the transition from old to new materiel in the Air Force.

WikiLeaks 'dead man's switch'? Assange's arrest prompts speculation about possible major data dumps

The arrest of WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange has re-ignited speculation about the so-called "insurance" – large encrypted files uploaded by the website.

What they are and when they will be opened is still unknown.

Assange's seven-year exile ended on Thursday, when the Metropolitan Police dragged the publisher out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.

While his fate is in limbo, even more uncertainty surrounds the WikiLeaks "insurance" files – believed by some to be the website's "dead man's switch" option: a massive encrypted data dump whose decryption keys will be revealed in case Assange gets

arrested or killed, or WikiLeaks gets taken down for good.

Paris Police Foil Potential Attack, Arrest Armed Man at Railway Station

French police arrested an armed man and two others at the Austerlitz train station in Paris this week, with all three coming from migrant backgrounds.

The police operation took place on Tuesday at around 4 pm and saw officers from the specialist anti-gang Research and Intervention Brigade (BRI) secure the area after railway police had arrested a man armed with a pistol around an hour before, Le Parisien reports.

At first, police feared the armed man may have been plotting a terrorist attack as two other men attempted to flee from the police and hide in the station toilets.

“Given the situation and the profile of the type arrested, we decided to play it with caution,” a source close to the investigation told Le Parisien.

The source added that investigators were still looking into potential links between the armed man and the other two saying that it was a possibility they merely hid from police for other reasons.

Hungarian PM announces bold seven-point action plan to fight population decline

BUDAPEST - Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban announced here on Sunday in his annual speech a bold seven-point action plan on helping families with children in order to tackle population decline.

According to Orban, whose speech has been broadcast by public television channel M1, the first point of his plan is to support young couples, with each woman under 40 years old to receive a loan of 10 million forints (around $35,000).

After giving birth to three children, the loan would not have to be paid back, and would become a non-refundable support.

The second point aims to expand the beneficiary state-credit scheme set up by the government to help young couples acquire their first apartment.

The third point deals with mortgages. The government vows to pay one million forints of the parents' mortgage after the birth of a second child, and 4 million forints after the birth of a third child.

Crosses in Italian Cemetery Covered to Avoid Offence to Other Religions

The crosses on graves in an Italian cemetery in Pieve di Cento have been covered with black cloth so as not to offend those who may come from another religion.

The cemetery, which is located in Bologna in a town of around 7,000 people, has also installed motorised blackout curtains in a local chapel following renovations to hide Roman Catholic symbols during ceremonies involving other denominations, Il Giornalereports.

Following the reports of the coverings of the symbols, many have expressed criticism including Forza Italia (Forward Italy) deputy Galeazzo Bignami who denounced the move saying those looking not to offend were disrespecting Christian values and he added, “even more so the memory of our dead, hiding them behind ‘motorised tents’ in a cemetery to avoid offending other religions.”

“If the administrators are ashamed of our tradition and our culture, they should go and hide themselves and not just behind a motorised tent.

If they are not able to bring respect for the living at least they have the decency to leave the dead alone and not involve them in foolishness,” he added.

The EU Is Tearing The UK Apart Over Brexit

Brexit has been a fascinating thing to watch.

Despite all of the twists and turns, the incomprehensible motions, legal maneuvers and behavior of Prime Minister Theresa “I Surrender” May, for me there’s been a simple through-line to it all.

The EU does not want Brexit and if it were to happen it will inflict incredible damage to the British political system and its integrity.

This is really no different than what happened in Greece in 2015. And it was directed by Angela Merkel than and it is being directed by Merkel today.

The EU’s intransigence in negotiations, aside from it having no other option, is an elaborate bluff to separate and divide the British political class, now that the people have voted to leave.

Germany: ‘Experts’ Say ‘Islamophobia’ Behind Muslim Anti-Semitism

Rising ‘Islamophobia’ in Germany is behind anti-Semitic attitudes amongst Muslim youths living in the country, according to a study by taxpayer-funded “experts”.

The findings of a three-year project to highlight and tackle anti-Semitism in Muslim school pupils in Germany were published in a report announced by the Federal Agency for Civic Education (FACE) Monday,

entitled ‘Extremism out — Empowerment instead of anti-Semitism’. 

The three-year project saw “experts” from the Liberal Islamic Federation and the Ibis Institute for Interdisciplinary Counseling and Intercultural Seminars work at schools on a programme aiming to

“shed light on and dispel anti-Semitic attitudes among young people who follow the Muslim faith in order to empower and support them in understanding their independence and autonomy as part of German society”.

Startlingly, the 38-year-old who has claimed to be originally from Rwanda, but has also said he was from Uganda, was released from prison only a month before the rape and murder and was set for a deportation that never took place.

Coming to France in 2002, Mr Nsengumukiza claimed that he had experienced trauma during the Rwandan genocide in the 1990s and had watched the mass murder of innocent people.

Eurocrat Juncker Calls Cameron ‘One of the Greatest Destroyers of All Time’

Jean-Claude Juncker has said that  Remain-backing former Tory Prime Minister David Cameron was “one of the greatest destroyers of all time” for stopping the European Commission from being involved in the UK’s 2016 referendum Remain campaign.

The president of the European Union’s unelected executive arm told the regional parliament of Saarland, Germany, on Monday in comments reported by The Telegraph,

“We were forbidden from being present in any way in the referendum campaign by Mr. Cameron, who is one of the great destroyers of modern times. 

“Because he said the Commission is even less popular in the UK than it is in other EU member states.”

“If we had been able to take part in this campaign, we could have asked — and also answered — many questions that are only being asked now,” he added in assertions that the democratic decision of British citizens required the input of Brussels.

Brexit's Message to European Union

The first problem with the EU is that, though it is called a union, it isn't really one. The EU is essentially an economic club; not a state.

Brexit has highlighted the key challenges that the EU faces. The first challenge concerns a widespread overestimation of the EU's role. This is due to its perception as a supra-national state, which it certainly is not.

The EU is also facing the challenge posed by the return of the nation-state as the most popular model of socio-political organization across the globe.

Right now all supra-national and/or international organizations, from the United Nations to NATO, are regarded with suspicion, if not outright hostility, not only in Europe but also throughout the world.

With the Brexit saga's denouement still uncertain, the European Union would do well to re-examine its performance as a daring experience in socio-political engineering on a grand scale.

Danish Anti-Islam Group Burn Quran in Front of Islamist Protesters

Danish anti-Islam party Stram Kurs (Tight Course) faced off against Islamists from the Hizb ut-Tahrir group in front of the Danish parliament, and burned a Quran.

The event began as a Friday prayer by the controversial Islamist group which regularly campaigns for a global caliphate, during a memorial to the victims of the Christchurch mosque shootings in New Zealand, Jyllands Posten reports.

The leader of Stram Kurs Rasmus Paludan was also present at the counter-protest to the 100 or so Islamists and promised to burn a copy of the Quran wrapped in bacon.

The group later did set the Islamic holy book on fire at around 1:20 in the afternoon to “modest reactions”, according to a journalist on the scene.

‘Dark day for internet freedom’: EU lawmakers approve controversial copyright reform

The European Parliament has voted to adopt the highly controversial Article 13 provision which would govern the production and distribution of content online under the auspices of increasing copyright protections, RT.com writes.

Tuesday’s move will update the EU’s 20-year-old copyright rules and will govern audiovisual content, much to the dismay of many social media users who have already begun outpouring their grief online.

However the parliament said in a statement that sharing memes and gifs has been protected “even more than it was before” and they will continue to be available and shareable on online platforms.

MEPs passed the legislation by 348 votes to 274 Tuesday. Opponents had hoped for last-minute amendments to be made but their efforts were in vain.

Julia Reda, a German MEP with the Pirate Party, described it as a “dark day for internet freedom.”

PALESTINIAN CLERIC: “FRANCE WILL BECOME AN ISLAMIC COUNTRY THROUGH JIHAD”

In an address to Al-Aqsa mosque-goers, Palestinian cleric Abu Taqi Al-Din Al-Dari said that France will become an Islamic state because it will mostly be inhabited by Muslims by 2050.

“France will become an Islamic country through jihad; the entire world will be subject to Islamic rule,” the cleric said.

Al-Dari said that this would happen because young European natives are not getting married, settling down and having children whereas Muslims have a high fertility rate and have lots of children.

“Muslims must have a country that will bring Islam….to the people of the west through jihad for the sake of Allah,” said Al-Dari.
