Norwegian Left Courts Pakistani Vote

Welcome to Eurabia! You know you have entered a strange world when leading politicians from Norway, a country straddling the Arctic Circle and with no colonial history, begin their election campaigns in the Pakistani countryside. I should mention that even our "Conservative" party (Høyre) has been courting the Pakistani vote, but as usual in Europe, the Socialists spare no efforts in their cooperation with Muslims. Leader of the Socialist Left party, Kristin Halvorsen, even praised all the "blood, sweat and tears Pakistanis in Norway have spent on building the country". She talked a little about the status of women, but absolutely nothing about the appalling situation for Pakistan's few remaining Christian and Hindu communities. The Leftist block still retains a narrow lead ahead of our national elections in September. If they win, Halvorsen will become a senior member of our Cabinet:

Norwegian Left Courts Pakistani Vote

On 12 September, Norway elects a new Storting (Parliament). Kristin Halvorsen, the president of the Socialist Left Party SV began her electoral campaign last week with a five-day visit to India and Pakistan. Immigrants make up 3.6% of the Norwegian electorate in the general elections. In Oslo, however, this figure is 12%. For the municipal elections, where everybody who has lived in Norway for three years is entitled to vote, the Oslo figure is 18%. A large part of the Norwegian immigrant population is of Pakistani origin. Most of the Norwegian Pakistanis come from the region of Kharian, a Punjabi town that is sometimes referred to locally as “Little Norway” because so many families have relatives in Norway. Halvorsen hopes that campaigning in Kharian during the holiday season will help her win votes in Norway next month.

Thousands of Pakistani children with Scandinavian citizenship are sent to Koran shcools in Pakistan, to prevent them from becoming "too Westernized". When this practice was documented and criticized by the Norwegian organization Human Rights Service, Pakistanis in Norway had the galls to ask for a school for their children in Pakistan, funded by Norwegian taxpayers. They will probably get it:

Oslo school to teach in Pakistan

Oslo's Lindeberg School will cooperate with two schools in Pakistan next year to help bring Norwegian classes to hundreds of Norwegian-Pakistani children living in Kharian. Halvorsen is just back from a two-week study trip to Pakistan with two colleagues and the dean of teacher education at Oslo University College. In 2005 they will develop a plan for the organization of Norwegian education in Pakistan.

The most famous Norwegian of Pakistani background is incidentally a very Westernized woman, humorist Shabana Rehman. She is known, among other things, for pulling a stunt where she lifted up Mullah Krekar, the controversial former leader of the militant group Ansar al-Islam, who has lived on welfare in Oslo for years. She later declared that she was no longer a stand-up comedienne, but a lift-up comedienne. However, politician Per Sandberg from the Progress Party claims to have received information about possibly tens of thousand of Pakistanis in Norway involved in a network aimed at creating instability within the country. Local Pakistanis also invited the extremist politician Qazi Hussain Ahmed, who has earlier praised Osama bin Laden and been a close backer of the Taliban, to Norway. He was allowed to visit and meet some of our senior Cabinet ministers:

Pakistani politician makes the rounds

Qazi Hussain Ahmed, leader of Pakistan's largest religious party and a member of parliament, arrived in Norway over the weekend after government minister Erna Solberg allowed his visit. Both Belgium and the Netherlands blocked his entry earlier this year, calling him a threat to national security. He refused, however, to discuss human rights with the head of Amnesty International in Norway. "I especially wanted to take up the position of women, who often live under difficult conditions and are subjected to violence," said Petter Eide of Amnesty International. "He didn't want to listen." Eide said Ahmed interpreted a discussion of human rights in Pakistan as "an attack on Islam."

Pakistanis feel so confident in their new colony that Pakistan's ambassador does not hesitate to intimidate even politicians in Norway of Pakistani origins who "step out of line":

Oslo politician felt pressured by Pakistan's ambassador

A member of Oslo's City Council who was born in Pakistan but now holds Norwegian citizenship has twice been called to Pakistan's local embassy. Both times, Pakistan's ambassador to Norway questioned her political standpoints, and now Norway's foreign minister Jan Petersen has been told that she felt pressured. The calls from Pakistan's embassy came after Munir became the first known Muslim woman in Norway to support a proposed ban on the use of head scarves and other religious symbols for youth. She then became a target of criticism within the local Pakistani community. She declined to comment on the issue after receiving several anonymous and bothersome phone calls. Newspaper Aftenposten Aften understands that Pakistan's ambassador, Shahbaz Shahbaz, noted in his second meeting with Munir that she still has family in Pakistan.

Pakistanis in Oslo attacked a man because of what they deemed to be an offensive newspaper article:

Vengeful gang beats up wrong target

As many as 15 Pakistani-Norwegian teenagers attacked a 31-year-old man outside his flat Monday night. They thought he was a journalist who'd written a provocative guide about how to have sex with young Muslim women.

What a depressing collection of articles. Norway is democratic though, so if the "left" wins the election, what can you do? I wish Norway would wake up and stop allowing Muslim immigration. It's going to destroy your culture. They're only 4% at the moment, so it's still not too late. Good luck!

Well. It's official now. The world has gone mad!

The entire world hasn't gone mad.
Just the leftists.

It's interesting to watch how people with no survival instinct operate.

End result of the nanny state?
No darwinian consequences leads to
higher stupidity quotient?

Maybe Norwegians should emigrate to Pakistan and they could open schools for their children to learn xenophobia? So that they don't lose their Norwegian sense...

At August 09, 2005 6:49 PM, Blogger erp said...


Are you saying that Norwegians should learn how to be xenophobic?

Why? They don't need to hate foreigners, they only need to insist that those who wish to emigrate to Norway follow Norwegian law and customs in public.

In other words follow the old time tested rule of "when in Rome ..."

Anything else is madness as this article demonstrates.

Fjordman, you are an invaluable resource. Reading about Scandinavian dhimmitude is fascinating (but time-consuming).

Honestly, I don't know why the Norwegian Comittee for the Suppression of Vice and Promotion of Virtue doesn't track you down and throw you into PC prison. You are definitely subversive.

I'm sure they are working on it. And that's only half-joking. There's a reason why I don't put my real name on my profile.......

Jag har en norsk-amerikansk van som besokte Norge fur forsta gang. Vad har han funnit? En kusin hade gift sig med en echte Zulu fran Sudafrika.

I have no objection to people making a free choice to marry whomsoever, but isn't it likely that this female was making a political statement of hostility towards Norwegian culture and her race, a statement in line with the doctrines of the thought police?

Man this is depressing, Even in India our "right wing" party went running after Muslim votes.

In the US when you go for a house loan/mortgage they have a saying/commercial jingle "When banks compete with each other you win"

When all the parties compete for Muslim votes then YOU LOSE.

In India we have a joke
Indians are good at IT (Information Technology)
Pakistanis are also good at IT (International Terrorism)

Here is an SMS message floating around in India (The acronyms are for universities or public exams in India)
If we were in Pakistan our options in education would be - IIT (Islamic Institute of Terrorism), JEE (Jehadic Entrance Exam), IIM (Institute of Infiltration Management), CAT (Career in Al Qaida and Taliban), IAS (Iraq after Saddam), MTech (Master in Terror Technology), GATE (General Aptitude in Terror and Extremism).

I think that you guys should just shut down all immigration. Japan did implement such a policy where they got fed up of the outside world and shut down all travel/movement of people in/out of Japan for several centuries.

here is a hat tip

:-). But this sort of jokes could be dangerous in Europe just now.

well at least wou are not plagued by political correctness in India. Moreover I've read that in some Indian federal states a fence is being built to prevent illegal immigration from Bangladesh.

That's a good sign for India, isn't it?

ik, Those jokes are hysterical! Thanks for sharing:)

I'll bet there is. There really are laws in Norway that forbid saying the things you say, aren't there?

I've said before that Scandinavia is the canary in the coal mine for Western civilization. Those of us who live in less dhimmified regions have much to be thankful for.

However, it looks like Canada will soon be as bad as Scandinavia.

"I've said before that Scandinavia is the canary in the coal mine for Western civilization"

Jews are that....Whatever happens first to the saturday people, will later happen to the sunday people eventually....cyclic lessions from time immemorial....

simulev -- But the Jews seem to be tougher than the Europeans, more willing to stand up against the enemies within and without. I think they'll still be in business after the Star and Crescent banner is flying over Oslo and Amsterdam.

Since you are concerned about being found out

(You may already know about this - in that case ignore)

google up on "anonymous proxy servers"


also google up on "proxy chaining"

These are two techniques used for covering up your "tracks" on the internet.

To simplify the setting of proxy servers - If you use the FireFox browser then it has a switchProxy extension which automates this

If you find the above complicated at least use www.anonymizer.com and enter the URL you go to out there.
