"1,000 POLICE OFFICERS EXTRA IN FIGHT AGAINST TERRORISM.
In 2019, Belgian Police will draft another 1,000 officers in the fight against radicalisation and terrorism, the federal government announced in a press conference. [Of these] the plan involves three hundred extra officers for Brussels.
The so-called "Channel Plan" [named after the ABC-Channel which runs in a SW-NE angle through Brussels] is a result of the Paris terrorist attacks, which were linked to Brussels, and the heightened terror alert. Interior Minister Jan Jambon (N-VA), who prefers the label "Federal Action Plan against violent extremism and terrorism", emphasizes that the Cha
nnel Plan for Brussels fits in the Federal Action Plan.
Three hundred officers are scheduled to be deployed in eight communes in Brussels, among them Molenbeek, Schaarbeek, Vilvoorde en Anderlecht. To tackle radicalization a different approach on several levels is necessary, said Jambon. And therefore good communications are necessary.
The Channel Plan is built around four chapters: Prevention, Administration, Operational and Judicial. One of the cornerstones of the plan is getting to know who exactly resides in the communes and where. Returned Syria fighters must be watched closer and the illegal economy supporting terrorism, like identity fraud and gun trade, will be taken on. Apart from that, "centers of hate preaching" must be snuffed out.
State Security gets 103 extra staff and the border controls in the airports will be reinforced. There is talk of a "Coast Plan" to avoid the emergence of refugee camps. There, too, police will be reinforced. Justice Minister Koen Geens (of the Christian Democrat party CDV) will step up efforts to reinforce Prosecution in Brussels and Halle-Vilvoorde.
Some of the measures included in the Judicial Chapter:
* Reinforcing the (follow up of the) registration mechanism of mosques and prayer houses
* Courts and Prosecution will be reinforced with 42 magistrates and 126 staffers
* Deradicalization programmes in Ittre and Hasselt will be reinforced with 36 prison guards
* State Security will be reinforced with 103 personnel
* CTIF, the joint Judicial and Police organization charged with wiretapping and communication interception will get 6.9 million EUR extra
* The budgets for the growing investigation costs like trace analysis, DNA analysis et al will be enhanced with 16 million EUR
In all, the measures approved by the government encompass 300 million EUR for a scheduled budget of 400 million EUR. One hundred million EUR is held in reserve, to be used later in the year. 72 million EUR goes to the Justice Department."
"All parents of teens or even older young men and women, parents who are struggling to pay for college and/or wondering what the future holds for their children, should run, children in tow, to see three films: In the Heart of the Sea, 13 Hours, and The Finest Hours.
For at least two generations, our young people have been sorely abused by progressive tenets – the alleged insidiousness of patriarchy, the conviction that misogyny has undermined women for centuries and still does. This is the nonsense that gave birth to militant feminism, to silly notions like "gender as a social construct." Then there is the academic, educational, and cultural mandating of tolerance and acceptance of every social/cultural/gender fad, real or imagined, that has done terrible damage to at least two generations of young men and women.
They have been, in calculated fashion, disabused of the glory and wonder of old-fashioned masculinity. Our young people, unless they are from a military family, know nothing of the type of man who is brave, selfless, protective of his family and of strangers if need be. They have been indoctrinated to believe all men are cads, that male college students are all potential rapists, that men in general are to be feared, not to be respected, let alone loved.
This is why these three new films are so necessary for all young people to see. Each is based on a true story. In the Heart of the Sea is based on the shipwreck of the Essex, a whaling ship that was destroyed in 1820 by a huge white whale. Herman Melville based his extraordinary novel Moby Dick on this real event in 1851. 13 Hours is based on the terrorist attack in 2012 on the diplomatic outpost where Ambassador Christopher Stevens was stationed in Benghazi and on the CIA facility a few miles away. Stevens and three others were killed. Four incredibly brave men saved the lives of their colleagues despite a stand-down order, abandonment by the State Department, and the denial of the awesome power of the American military that was not allowed to rescue them.
The Finest Hours is the phenomenal tale of the greatest small-boat rescue in American history. Against all odds, a Coast Guard crew of four men saved the lives of 32 men after their tanker split in half in a ferocious storm off the coast of Massachusetts in 1952.
The common denominator of all three films is the wonder and talent of men; very smart men, brave men. In each story, an unlikely leader arose to lead. Each of those men was an expert on navigating the slice of the world he knew so, so well. The men who followed their lead knew a leader when they saw one. They were all as one with their chosen life's work.
The complexity of a whale ship in the early 19th century is a wonder to behold. The youngest member of the crew of the Essex was 14, an orphan and the only survivor still alive for Melville to interview many years later. The obstacles the heroes of 13 Hours overcame are nothing short of miraculous. The same is true of the rescue of the men of the Pendleton in The Finest Hours.
But while these glorious tales of heroism abound, our children are being taught outrageous things in school. Our girls are being taught to fear men. Our young men are being taught to fear women. Universities are requiring new students to answer extremely personal questions about their sexual history when most of them do not have one. Academia is intent upon driving another nail in the coffin of traditional families, a longtime progressive goal. A professor of mine once said in a women's studies class: "The nuclear family is the most destructive institution in the Western world." Wrong. It is the rock of Western civilization, the basis of all that is good in the world.
Men have taken care of women for centuries. Women have taken care of men for centuries. But it is not a zero-sum game; men and women are profoundly different. That is life as a human on this planet. For decades, though, the progressive left has been submarining the whole notion of traditional family, of men as protective of women and children and of women as homemakers. Traditional family life is like holy water sprinkled on the devil to the left. It undermines their totalitarian instinct, their drive to control how people live.
Women and girls, pay attention! Most men are good men. They want a woman to love who will love them. They want a family for whom to strive and care. College men, most of them, are not rapists. Watch these films and learn what good men are made of. Then watch Mamet's The Edge and Spielberg's Bridge of Spies. Learn what "the edge" is – character – and what a "standing man" is. Learn and remember."
"...Clergymen should grow beards to emphasise their holiness to Muslims, the Bishop of London has suggested.
... Writing in the Church Times, Rev. Chartres, who himself sports a 'modest' beard, said: 'The discovery that two of the most energetic priests in east London had recently grown beards of an opulence that would not have disgraced a Victorian sage prompted me to look again at the barbate debate throughout Church history.
'The two priests work in parishes in Tower Hamlets. Most of the residents are Bangladeshi-Sylheti, for whom the wearing of a beard is one of the marks of a holy man.'
He said the desire of the clergy of Tower Hamlets to 'reach out to the culture of the majority of their parishioners can only be applauded'.
... One of the priests praised by the Bishop of London, the Rev. Atkinson told The Telegraph he found having a beard had helped provide a connection with many people in his parish, around 85 per cent of whom are Muslim...."
"An Afghan and I once broke into a small house in Peckham. I had met him while researching a report on immigration for the Daily Mail.
We were on a rescue mission. Inside the two-up, two-down property in South East London, every room was packed with beds, mattresses and migrants.
On the landing, grey and scarcely breathing, lay the man we had come to rescue from this awful place.
The other migrants who were there started to shout at us. Apparently, the sick man owed them and their trafficking gang money. We had to hustle him out fast.
I emerged shaken. I had glimpsed a London I did not know existed — one of Third World poverty, exploitation and criminality.
It is writer Ben Judah’s great achievement to reveal that hidden city in his new book, This Is London: Life And Death In The World City.
A young war correspondent, Judah examines his home city as the foreign metropolis it has now become.
Since 2001, immigration has transformed the capital. More than half of Londoners are now not ethnically British.
As he says: ‘I was born in London, but I no longer recognise this city. I don’t know if I love the new London, or if it frightens me: a city where at least 55 per cent of people are not white British, nearly 40 per cent were born abroad and hundreds of thousands are living illegally, in the shadows.’
Who are these new Londoners? In order to find out, Judah immerses himself in the migrant world.
He spends a night with the Roma beggars who camp in the tunnels beneath Hyde Park. He stays in a doss-house in Barking, East London. He cajoles an astonishing array of migrants from across London to describe their lives.
Whether a mini cab driver who also washes dead bodies, a Romanian prostitute in a blonde wig, or a wealthy young African with bodyguards hired from his own tribe, they open up to Judah.
The quantity and authenticity of his interviews build up an irrefutable argument. Here, as opposed to what the Left is always telling us, are the real effects of immigration.
Immigration, Judah makes clear, has touched every aspect of life in London and utterly transformed it.
The English upper classes no longer inhabit the splendid townhouses in Mayfair. Suburbs such as Edmonton in the north of the city are no longer home to the aspirational, largely unionised, English working-class.
As for white, East End gangsters such as the Kray Twins, you will only find those in movies.
The same goes for the prostitutes who used to inhabit Soho. Even tramps, for goodness sake, are rarely English any more. Such is the level of liberal propaganda that we have largely remained blind to this startling transformation of our city.
Judah systematically maps these changes — the result of Labour relaxing immigration into the UK.
Left-wingers and the business establishment pat themselves on the back for creating an open city that welcomes the world. In fact, we have lost control of our borders and have no say who comes here.
This week, it emerged that Brussels is attempting to blackmail Britain by saying that if we don’t take as many as 90,000 migrants a year, we will not be able to send failed asylum seekers back to safe countries on the Continent.
Then came the story that a tribunal had ruled that a group of migrants in the Jungle camp in Calais had a ‘human right’ to join family members in Britain. It is a precedent that could have far-reaching implications.
Aside from legal rulings, the truth is that much of our immigration policy is now dictated by criminal trafficking gangs who make a fortune smuggling people into Britain — not our elected leaders and certainly not voters and taxpayers.
It is criminal gangs who decide who comes into the UK and in what numbers. They largely decide what happens to the migrants once they arrive.
In handing our immigration system over to them, we have allowed conditions of unimaginable squalor, misery and criminality reminiscent of Victorian times to take hold.
So how has it happened? Well, get rid of any notion that we are doing the world’s poorest many favours.
Judah quickly discovers that multiculturalism for many migrants is a euphemism for slave labour.
It starts when would-be immigrants listen to the sales pitch of the agents for the people-traffickers. They promise that London is ‘a second paradise’ where ‘every man is rich’.
On offer is free NHS treatment, free housing, free schooling and countless welfare benefits. It is a place of opportunity, security and, above all, available women.
This was a definite pull for one young Afghan working in a butcher’s in Neasden, North West London.
As he put it, in his village, if you slept with more than one person in your life, ‘they shot you in the back’. In Britain, however, sexual opportunities were immense...."
"Last year, Angela Merkel decided to attempt it. The German Chancellor cut to the chase and imported in twelve months 1.1 million Muslim "refugees". That doesn't sound an awful lot out of 80 million Germans, but, in fact, the 1.1 million Muslim are overwhelmingly (80 per cent plus) fit, virile, young men. Germany has fewer than ten million people in the same population cohort, among whom Muslims are already over-represented: the median age of Germans as a whole is 46, the median age of German Muslims is 34. But let's keep the numbers simple, and assume that of those ten million young Germans half of them are ethnic German males. Frau Merkel is still planning to bring in another million "refugees" this year. So by the end of 2016 she will have imported a population equivalent to 40 per cent of Germany's existing young male cohort. The future is here now: It's not about "predictions".Danish nightclubs demand guests have to speak Danish, English or German to be allowed in after 'foreign men in groups' attack female revellers
On standard patterns of "family reunification", these two million "refugees" will eventually bring another four or five persons each from their native lands - or another eight-to-ten million. In the meantime, they have the needs of all young lads, and no one around to gratify them except the local womenfolk. Hence, New Year's Eve in Cologne, and across the southern border the Vienna police chief warning women not to go out unaccompanied, and across the northern border:
"WE HAVE OUR OWN HATE PREACHERS HERE. WITH BLONDE HAIR."
"So the molestations in Cologne have everything to do with islam? And what about sexual violence in Dutch families or on Muenchen's Oktoberfest, reacts Dutch journalist Hassnae Bouazza. "The evil in muslims must be named, but not the racism of the autochtons, because then you demonize Henk and Ingrid".
