Eurabian Union Wants More Action Against Islamophobia

A new report from the EU's racism watchdog says Europe must do more to combat racism. The problem is, "Islamophobia" has been included as a form of racism in the EU. New anti-discrimination laws to combat Islamophobia are to be enacted, and already have been in Norway, where Norwegians need to mount proof of their own innocence if Muslim immigrants accuse them of discrimination in any form, including discriminatory speech:



EU must do more to combat racism: report

Europe must do more to combat racism and xenophobia and work to end discrimination in employment, housing and education, the EU's racism watchdog said on Wednesday. In a report presented to the European Parliament in Brussels, the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC) said that Roma gypsies and Muslims were especially targeted. "Muslim groups face particularly challenging conditions in many member states," said the report, which assessed developments in 2004 across the 25 EU member states. The authors recommend the full implementation of EU anti-discrimination laws, national employment strategies to target minorities, more equitable access to education and housing and a crackdown on racist incidents.



Ali Sina: The Fall of Europe

Anti-Islamism has been included in the text as a “dangerous inclination” that has to be fought against upon the insistence of Turkey at the summit that 46 Council members attended. The 3rd Council of Europe summit has for the first time mentioned "Islamophobia" in the 9th paragraph of the Warsaw Declaration that was accepted on Tuesday, May 17. The Council has reached the following decisions regarding the issue: Condemnation of any kind of intolerance and discrimination based on gender, race and religious beliefs in particular, including Islamophobia and anti-Semitism, the fight against these within the framework of the Council of Europe and the use of effective mechanisms and rules to combat these problems. Thus, anti-Islamism as well as anti-Semitism will be dealt with within the framework of legal proceedings. The Council reports will include anti-Islamist movements. The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) will closely monitor these movements.

The Norwegian Inquisition - Sunset in the Land of the Midnight Sun

Stortinget, the Norwegian parliament, in 2005 passed a new Discrimination Act. The act says in pretty clear words that in cases of suspected direct or indirect discrimination due to religion or ethnicity, Norwegians are guilty until proven otherwise. The act was passed in April with the approval of all parties in parliament, more than 80 % of MPs, with the sole exception of the right-wing Progress Party. Immigration spokesman for the Progress Party, Per Sandberg, is deeply disappointed and fears the consequences of the new legislation. "This law will jeopardize the rights of ordinary, law-abiding Norwegian citizens. The principle of reverse burden of proof means that Norwegians are guilty of discrimination unless they can prove otherwise. It will lead to many convictions of innocent people. Reverse burden of proof is also combined with liability to pay compensation, which means that innocent persons risk having to pay huge sums for things they didn't do." "Anti-racist" organizations are given a significant role in the new law. There is a new, state-sponsored Equality Ombudsman who will be responsible for enforcing it, and coerce all employers who refuse to abide by it. A multicultural Inquisition, in other words. Cabinet minister Erna Solberg, who has earlier called for the establishment of a sharia council in Norway, proposed the new act.

This law could open the floodgates for all kinds of unreasonable demands from Muslim immigrants in particular, who will be given a licence for extortion of employers, courtesy of the Norwegian parliament. For instance, it is likely that they can now claim that it is “discrimination” if they don’t have a special prayer room provided. Already, Muslim taxi drivers demand a separate prayer room at Oslo Airport, where they can pray during working hours, but have received a negative answer. The leader of the Somali Taxi Association, Ali Hassan, finds this discriminating and unacceptable, and is planning a law suit over the matter: "We think we have a right to pray during working hours. We demand to get a room where we can perform prayers, without losing our spot in the taxi queue." At the same time as this is going on, blind people with their guide dogs are finding it increasingly difficult to get a taxi ride in the Oslo region, where Muslims make up a high percentage of cab drivers.

One of the characteristics of Islamic prayer is that it can be done anywhere. The farmer in the field can stop where he is, orient himself towards Mecca, take five minutes and pray.

When it comes to discrimination, though, the real question is: does Oslo airport have a Church?

Does new Eurabian ruling on anti-Islamism mean they will close down blogs like your, Fjordman?

I will close down for private reasons. Maybe I would survive, but I would be walking a legal tightrope with this, and other additional laws, yes. Criticism of Islam and Muslim immigration is increasingly being banned by law in Eurabia.

Presumably, the reason blind people have a harder time finding a taxi is because of their dogs. In the Islamic tradition, dogs are considered "unclean" animals. Surely you cannot fault a Muslim for not wanting an unclean animal in his car?

Sorry about that duplicate post.

But seriously, do Norwegians have any constitutional protection similar to the first amendment of the American Constitution that protects freedom of speech?

Is it only Muslims who can sue Norwegians, or can Norwegians sue Muslims, too?

This seems like a very foolish law. Why are Norwegians so eager to turn over their country to foreigners who hate them?

Yeah, Fjordman. We will be sorry to see you go.

I can't understand why this is happening in Europe. I doubt the average European person wants things to be the way they are. What's up?

I guess it's comparable to our immigration problem. Almost every American is angry about that, but the government refuses to do anything to fix the problem, and when we vote in laws, they shoot them down in the courts.

Eventually, the majority of people in North American and in Europe will realize that voting will not solve the current problems that have infested the west. The only viable alternative will be to take to the streets. The elite have an agenda and they brazenly defy the will of the people, as you have noted. This will end very badly, I fear. The only reason this whole sham is still held together is due to prosperity. Western man is fat and complacent. Once most jobs leave and the middle class is devastated, people will revolt. Too many people still view this as "not my problem" and "I just want live my life and not be bothered", despite EVERYONE seeing the catastrophe unfolding before our very eyes.

Every day I hear something more outlandish/ unbelievable than the previous one!
This "takes the biscuit", as we say in Scotland, when it beggars belief.

I do not suffer from Islamophobia - that would mean that I have an illogical fear of Islam. My fear is VERY logical!
Every day I hear more and more how Muslims are DEMANDING this and that, even if they are living in a NON-Muslim country. More appalling is the fact that our politicians (in several European countries - as well as in the Canada & the USA (where we used to live) - are either blind to the imminent danger this cancer called Islam presents, or are too stupid/corrupt to do something about it.

To 'Flopbot' I would say that it is a Muslim can bar whoever he wants from entering his car, but a taxi driver should lose his license if he refuses a bona fide fare - otherwise I hope he will be prosecuted under the new (but stupid) Norwegian Law uncovered by Fjordman? Anyway, who let so many Somalians into Norway?!

Ethnocentrist is correct in his prognosis - disaster awaits us in the "civilised" world when these backward savages apply their sharia law on an unsuspecting public.
Armagedden inches closer. It was never about Capitalism v. Communism. It is becoming abundantly clear that it is a wordwide 'caliphate' - and nothing less - that Muslims seek/demand

"This law could open the floodgates for all kinds of unreasonable demands from Muslim immigrants in particular, who will be given a licence for extortion of employers, courtesy of the Norwegian parliament."

You think? As the lawsuit from the Somalian taxi driver clearly shows, this is only the beginning. What is so frustrating is the governement is so clueless.

I just read that Oslo has allowed the Islam call to prayer to be broadcast 5 times daily---how long has this been going on? They had a similar thing happen in a Michigan town last year. Despite hundreds of signatures collected by citizens, it was allowed. There was an effort to try to repeal the law, but I don't know if it was successful.

I'm still waiting for proof that Islamophobia actually exists anywhere except between Muslims (e.g. Wahhabis think Shiites are apostates).
