Why This G7 Nation Has No Problem With Islamic Terrorism

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 27, 2017

President Trump proposed a temporary halt on refugee resettlement from six countries known to harbor Islamic terrorists, and the U.S. establishment went into convulsions, a level of hysteria not seen over any policy ever proposed by a modern-day president.

But in Japan there is no such debate about refugees. That’s because the Asian nation has a permanent ban on refugees from Muslim countries.

John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, referred to the lack of a problem with terrorism in Japan in an interview Friday on Fox News.

This [G7 meeting] is being held in Sicily. The Italians are the hosts this year. And Sicily is one of the places in Southern Europe where so many of the refugees from North Africa come,” Bolton said.

We’ve just seen an attack in Egypt this morning on a busload of Coptic Christians by Islamic terrorists. So, I think this issue of how to deal with terrorism and how to deal with the refugee so-called problem, how to work better together in light of the Manchester attack, really this is the time to be very realistic about the threats that everybody, with the exception of Japan, around that table is facing.”

The Brits are following 3,000 terror plots now in the wake of the Manchester attack. The United States has more than 900 active ISIS investigations in all 50 states, according to former FBI Director James Comey, stretching the FBI to its limits in trying to track all of the suspected jihadists.

  • Meanwhile the Japanese live in peace.

  • Terrorism is not happening in Poland, either.

  • Nor is it happening in Slovenia or Hungary.

All of these countries keep Islamic migrants out, and Hungary recently punctuated its policy by erecting a razor-wire fence along its southern border.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has scolded Japan repeatedly over the years, trying to get the country to accept refugees, mostly Muslim, from various countries. The Japanese have steadfastly refused.

In 2016, Japan granted refugee status to only 28 people out of 10,901 applicants. In other words, 99 percent of applications were rejected.

Of the few refugees that Japan has taken in, most are non-Muslims from Burma, and, even then, Japan requires them to go through an extensive, months-long training on Japanese culture.

Poland’s prime minister, Beata Szydlo, has also refused the constant pressure from the European Union for her country to accept its “quota” Muslim refugees from the Middle East and Africa.

Poland will not submit to any blackmail on the part of the European Union,” Szydło stated during a parliamentary debate, adding that her Central European nation would not be participating in the “madness of the Brussels elites.”

Referencing the Islamic suicide bombing that killed 22, mainly children, and injured dozens more at a pop concert in Manchester this week, the Catholic prime minister said she had the courage to call out the EU’s political elites on their “folly.”

Two Polish citizens were among those killed in Monday night’s atrocity in Manchester.

Where are you going, Europe? Get up off your knees. Get out of your lethargy. Otherwise you will be crying every day for your children,” she warned, stating that Poland had no intention of accepting Brussels-imposed migrants.

Yet, the leaders of the Western European and U.S. governments don’t seem to be able to look at what is going on around the world and draw the conclusions that are so obvious to Japan and Poland.

There’s a direct link between Islamic immigration and terrorist attacks,” says Ann Corcoran, editor of the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog. “As we get more Muslim immigration, we’re going to get more terror attacks. It’s like a straight-line graph. Trump should invite the prime minister of Poland to the White House. It would send a message to the wimps in Europe, it would send a message to Americans that he really does believe what he originally said during the campaign.”

Only last week, the European Commission again warned Poland of “consequences” if it continued to refuse to take in migrants from camps in Italy and Greece, a decision the previous government was set to implement. Since Szydło’s Law and Justice Party came to power in October 2015, however, Poland has refused to resettle a single migrant, infuriating Brussels.

In 2015, the EU’s Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, Dimitris Avramopoulos, discussed plans to open legal channels for the migration of a staggering 50 million migrants into Europe over the next several decades. Similar figures have previously been proposed in relation to immigration from Africa alone, with the stated goal of importing labor to make up for collapsing birth-rates across the continent.

Only days ago, a leaked German report revealed there were almost 7 million migrants ready to cross from North Africa and Turkey into Europe. Other estimates circulating put the number of those on the point of embarking on the journey in the tens of millions.

Corcoran pointed out in a recent post that the United Nations doesn’t seem to pester communist and Islamic countries that refuse to accept Muslim migrants.

The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees has been haranguing Japan for years to open its doors (and begin diluting their culture) to the masses of Middle Eastern and African (mostly Muslim) migrants on the move around the world,” Corcoran writes. “I have not seen the UNHCR harangue China, Saudi Arabia or some other Middle Eastern countries in the same way they nag Japan.”

War On Christians: The Only Two Christian Cities in Japan BOMBED

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on August 9, 2014

Christian cities? Is this true?
 
Nagasaki Target Selection
 
CathedralNagasakiOn August 6, 1945, the first uranium-based atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. An estimated 140,000 people died as a result. The bomb, known as Little Boy, had never been tested before being detonated. The Hiroshima bomb was a diversion meant to help conceal the fact that the second city bombed, Nagasaki, was the real target, particularly its Christian population who presented a threat to the NWO’s one-world plans. Even if the Hiroshima uranium bomb had failed because it had never been tested, it would still have been useful in helping to disguise the NWO agenda.
 
 
The NWO is very clever, and its leaders understand the marketing principle called the Law of Leadership. This marketing principle states that people remember the first event in a new category and pay less attention to the second event in the new category. Marketing experts Al Ries and Jack Trout provide an example. Ask yourself who was the first person to fly the Atlantic Ocean solo? Many people can correctly answer the question with Charles Lindbergh. Now ask yourself what is the name of the second person to fly the Atlantic Ocean solo? Fewer people know the answer to this question. Understanding this principle is critical for understanding why Hiroshima, having no connection to destroying Christianity, was the first target.
 
The plutonium version of the bomb had been tested on July 16, 1945 in a test code-named Trinity. Unlike the Hiroshima bomb that had never been tested, the plutonium bomb was proven to work. The plutonium bomb, called Fat Man, was dropped on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945 killing an estimated 70,000 people. The group responsible for dropping this second bomb knew that by dropping it on Nagasaki they would be striking at the center of Christianity in Japan.
 
 
The NWO, intimately involved in every aspect of the atomic program, wanted more than just the defeat of Japan. Nagasaki was the window through which Christians first arrived in Japan in 1549 and the place where Christianity first began to be exterminated. Toyotomi Hideyoshi (February 2, 1536 or March 26, 1537 – September 18, 1598) was the daimyo (feudal lord) who unified Japan. In 1587 he banned Christianity. Christians were rounded up in Japan and put in large two-wheeled wagons which brought them to Nagasaki much as Jews were rounded up by Hitler in railcars; thousands died. Hideyoshi’s decree led to the famous “execution of the 26 saints” on February 5, 1597. He ordered the 26 public crucifixions in Nagasaki as an example to anyone who dared convert to Christianity.
 
 
Christianity in Nagasaki was dealt a near knockout blow by the persecutions in the 16th century and it was not until 1865, almost 300 years later, that descendants of the original Japanese Christians were discovered in the Urakami district secretly practicing their faith. By 1945 Christianity was once again a major force in Nagasaki. Unfortunately, using the U.S. military to drop an atomic bomb, the NWO was able to deliver the same “If you are a Christian you will be slaughtered” message that Hideyoshi delivered in 1587.
 
 
Evil Conceived at the Bohemian Grove
 
The atomic bomb was “conceived” at an NWO planning meeting at the Bohemian Grove in September 1942. The Bohemian Grove in Northern California is where each July elite NWO members meet for an occult ritual called the Cremation of Care. Attending the meeting where the atomic bomb was conceived were physicist Ernest Lawrence, the president of Harvard, and leaders from Standard Oil and General Electric. To this day Bohemian Grove members take particular pride in their role in creating the atomic bomb and show new members the Chalet, the building where the NWO met in 1942.
 
 
A secretive NWO group called the S-1 Executive Committee was created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on June 17, 1942, with Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson in full control of the target selection process. However, the group that NWO agents have focused the public’s attention on as responsible for targeting decisions is the Los Alamos Target Committee. This group, led by J. Robert Oppenheimer, never even recommended Nagasaki as a target. In an effort to keep their agenda to destroy Japan’s Christians secret, the NWO started another war in Korea to distract people and created evidence to blame the Jews for the Nagasaki bombing. The Jewish Oppenheimer came close to being crucified as the Jew who targeted Christianity by targeting Nagasaki.
 
 
The NWO cover story that was successfully sold for years was that the city of Kokura was the primary target for the second bomb with Nagasaki being chosen only 12px Kokura was reported shrouded in smog. Edwin O. Reischauer, a U.S. Army Intelligence Japan Expert on Oppenheimer’s team, was falsely credited with having a deciding role on Oppenheimer’s team in selecting Nagasaki. Propaganda about Reischauer was distributed by NWO agents to draw attention away from the anti-Christian secret society members who selected Nagasaki. Reischauer revealed in his autobiography that, in fact, high level Freemason Henry Stimson made the decision that had long been attributed to Reischauer. President Truman, as explained, was also a high level Freemason, which is important because at the upper levels of Freemasonry members are NWO insiders and pledge to destroy Christianity.
 
 
Christianity, not weather, was the primary reason the B-29 bomber called Bock’s Car was ordered to destroy Nagasaki. This sad truth is also why the first explosion of an atomic bomb in New Mexico was called the Trinity shot. By choosing Trinity as the name of the first nuclear test site, the NWO was taking a direct shot at God, in effect stating that they had the power to end what God created. Christians should find the name of the Trinity site an abomination, because naming a mass murder device test site 12px the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is blasphemous.

Iraq: The Yazidis, Jews and Christians, and The Origin of ‘Genocide’

The test of a nation’s civility and civilization is the manner in which it treats its most underprivileged minority
 
 
Old is Gold – But not according to the venomous Luciferians who attempt to dissolve it in their nitric acid.
 
In the video, Archbishop Nicodemus of Mosul (Nineveh) send the following powerful heartbreaking message:
 
We Christians do not take either side. We have nothing to do with either with the Sunnis or Shiites. We are native citizens of this country. We are the ones who received them in our midst. We introduced Islam into Iraq and educated the Muslims in Iraq. We were the ones who translated books so that the Muslims could be educated. We regret having translated those books to them.
 
CONNECTING THE DOTS – Genocides of:
 
WAR AGAINST ANCIENT CHRISTIAN POPULATIONS
 
This is an extract from The Silence of Our Friends: the Extinction of Christianity in the Middle East
 
 
The first Iraqi contact with Christianity came very early. Within Mesopotamia was a small vassal state called Osrhoene, its capital at Edessa, modern-day Turkey, the population of which was largely Aramaean.
 
Legend has it that the incurably ill Abgar V, King of Osrhoene, heard of Jesus and wrote a letter offering to let him stay in the country, as he was being persecuted at home. Jesus replied that he couldn’t go but he would send over his apostle Thaddeus, who arrived after the Crucifixion and cured the king of his disease. Offering asylum to the Son of God gives the country a certain moral status, but the historical reality is that Christianity had reached Edessa very early, most likely in the first century, and in the second century its King Abgar VIII converted. Edessa would remain Christian for another 18 centuries, until the First World War brought that world to an end.
 
Christians in Syria and Iraq at first welcomed the Arab invaders because they were persecuted by Byzantium and Persia, and felt an affinity with fellow Semites. And the Arab world flourished during the Islamic Golden Age, when Muslim rulers mixed and advanced the knowledge of Roman, Egyptian, Greek and even Chinese cultures. Yet this relied heavily on Christians who translated Greek philosophy into Syriac and then Arabic, which survived and arrived in Spain and Italy in the 12th and 13th centuries where they were copied into Latin, helping to influence the Renaissance (which was also sparked by the exodus of Greeks from Constantinople to Italy in 1453).
 
As Dr Suha Rassam wrote in Christianity in Iraq: “Neither the Persians who lived in Iraq, nor the Arabs that ruled the state, were conversant with Greek. In fact, translation of Greek philosophical works to Arabic was almost exclusively performed by Christian scholars. [Academic George] Qanawati enumerates over sixty translators, all of whom were Christians, except for one Sabian [a religion that focussed around the worship of angels] and one Jew.”
But the imposition of Islamic law took its toll. Umayyad caliph Umar ibn Abdul Aziz (717-720) had introduced a series of laws for dhimmis, among them that they must not “denigrate or misquote the book of Allah”, “must not undermine a Muslim’s faith” and must not erect buildings taller than the Muslims’ structures. Furthermore a Christian could not testify against a Muslim, so they could not defend themselves in legal disputes. “Some Christians were unable to withstand the effects of the jizyah, the apostasy laws, the marriage laws and their inferior status,” writes Rassam.
 
After the 9th century, Arabic began to displace Syriac among the Christians and by the 12th the language was on the ropes. Because of the Islamic tax laws the Church could not afford to maintain its centres of learning, either, and the cultural influence of the Assyrians began to wane, to the loss of the Islamic world too, which by the 13th century had passed its golden age and was in a state of prolonged cultural decline.
 
From the 18th century the Ottoman Empire, alarmed at how far behind Western Europe it had fallen, began to open up its borders, and its sheer weakness meant that it had to make trading concessions to Western governments. As part of these agreements France and Britain would act as protectors to Christians within the empire, following a precedent that went all the way back to Charlemagne but which had certainly been cemented by treaty between France and Turkey in the 16th century. The French would act as protectors for Catholics in the region, the British for the Assyrians, a role they have performed with less than godfatherly diligence.
 
More beneficial was the influence of Western Christians and Jews in promoting education. From the early 17th century, religious orders arrived in Iraq, the Capuchins followed by Carmelites and Dominicans. The Carmelites opened the first Baghdad primary school in 1721, St Joseph’s, while Dominicans did the same for Mosul in 1750. Catholics also introduced the first printing press in Iraq in 1860, and Jews set up one of the earliest modern schools, the Alliance Israelite Universelle, in 1865. It accepted non-Jewish students.
 
Iraq had had a considerable Jewish population stretching back to the Exile, and Jews comprised a third of Baghdad’s population on the eve of the First World War. Today there are 8 Jews left in Iraq. The country was also home to Mandeans, dualists who probably emerged from a Gnostic sect living west of the river Jordan in the first and second centuries. They believe in a World of Light and World of Darkness, and that the soul is imprisoned in the body and is freed by the redeemer, Manda d- Hiia, the personified “knowledge of life”. They denounce violence and have multiple baptism, and because of this like living near rivers. Then there are the Yazidi, who live in northern Iraq, mix traditional Kurdish beliefs with elements of Islam and Zoroastrianism, and believe that God created seven angels to care for the world, the most important of which is a Peacock Angel.
 
This mosaic was shattered by the Great War, in which Syriac-speakers suffered heavily, not just in the genocide but fighting for the Assyrian Levies alongside the British. It was a troubled relationship, and among the various promises that the British made during the conflict, many of which contradicted each other, were those to the Assyrians of northern Iraq who they appeared to have promised a state. Mar Shimon, the Assyrian leader, felt betrayed by Britain, which instead pushed them into the new kingdom of Iraq – and since then their history has been littered with tragedy.
 
A new and unwelcome addition was made to the English language in 1933 – genocide. It was coined by Raphael Lemkin, a lawyer working for the League of Nations, in response to the massacre of 3,000 Assyrian villagers by the new state of Iraq. Ironically Lemkin was a Polish Jew and would lose 49 relatives in the Holocaust, although after taking part in the defence of Warsaw he managed to escape to Sweden.
 
After the war and the establishment of Israel in 1948, Iraq’s Jewish population of 150,000, which had been in the country for 25 centuries, was airlifted to Israel to escape massive levels of violence. Christians suffered various degrees of repression but numbered as many as 1.4 million in 1987 when a census was taken under Saddam Hussein. They were certainly ill-treated under Ba’athism, although it was motivated primarily by ethnic rather than religious hatred, as Saddam sought to Arabize Aramaic-speakers in the north, as well as Kurds.
But the American invasion of 2003 was followed, in less than a decade, by the almost total destruction of a community who trace their faith back 18 centuries, and their language and culture much longer, under the watch of their co-religionists from the most powerful state on earth.

Kill us, torture us, condemn us, grind us to dust; your injustice is the proof that we are innocent. Therefore God suffers (allows) that we thus suffer….Nor does your cruelty, however exquisite, avail you; it is rather a temptation to us. The oftener we are mown down by you, the more in number we grow; the blood of Christians is seed.” (Tertullian, 197 A.D)
