The Counterjihad Calendar Project

SIOE Brussels 9-11-07Back in March I posted an announcement about an organization called Stop the Islamization of Europe. SIOE is a joint effort put together by SIAD (Stop Islamiseringen Af Danmark) and Akte-Islam, a prominent counterjihad group in Germany. SIOE is organizing a demonstration at the EU Parliament in Brussels on September 11th, 2007, to protest the ongoing Islamization of Europe.

Since the launching of SIOE in March the plans for the demonstration have proceeded apace. Various other groups have joined forces with the two main sponsors, and besides Denmark and Germany, people from Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Sweden, Norway, and Finland are planning to come to Brussels to show their solidarity At least, those are the countries I’m sure about — I assume that the rest of Western Europe is also involved.

SIOE asked me to help with graphics and logos for their efforts, and I was glad to comply. In the process I decided to launch a parallel enterprise, one which fits in with the Brussels demo but which will continue afterwards. I call it the “Counterjihad Calendar Project”, and it will include an iconic image of a notable Western monument for each of the twelve months.

One of the themes of the SIOE rally is “Enough is enough!” With the help of people from the various countries involved, versions of the slogan in nine different European languages were created:

  • Enough!
  • Så er det nok! (Danish)
  • Genug ist genug! (German)
  • Nu får det vara nog! (Swedish)
  • Basta! (Italian)
  • Suffit! (French)
  • Genoeg is genoeg! (Dutch)
  • ¡Basta ya! (Spanish)
  • Ωσ Εδω! (Greek)

Here’s the tentative design for the cover of the calendar (click for a larger image):

Stop the Sharia Clock!

Bearing in mind what has happened to Cordoba Cathedral in Spain, Hagia Sophia in Constantinople, and uncountably many Hindu temples in India, I wanted to associate a well-known Western building or monument on each page of the calendar. I’ve finished seven months, and have five more to go.

To give you an idea of what I’m trying to do, here’s January — the French have the honor of going first (click for a larger image):
- - - - - - - - - -
Suffit!

Similar images will be used for eleven other countries. Since our focus at Gates of Vienna is not just on Europe, but on the ongoing Islamization of the entire civilized world, the countries on the calendar will include:

  • France
  • Germany
  • Sweden
  • India
  • Denmark
  • Britain
  • The U.S.A.
  • Italy
  • Greece
  • The Netherlands
  • Spain
  • Australia

Some of the monuments used in the images will be well-known to everyone; others will be familiar mainly to the citizens of the countries involved.

If all goes well, when the last month is ready, I’ll create a wall calendar that will be sold at our Café Press store.

Here’s where I need help from our readers in order to complete the project:

Along with the image for each month, there will be a list of URLs for a number of counterjihad blogs and websites. For example, the list for France would include ¡No Pasaran!, just to name one counterjihad blog off the top of my head.

So each time I unveil another month, I’d like readers to supply me with suggested blogs and websites to go on the list for that country.

Obviously, some of them are already on our blogroll, but there are many more. I’ll harvest the links from our email and the comments, and, depending on the amount of space available at the bottom or on the sides of the month’s image, I’ll make the URLs part of the calendar.

Today we’ll start with France. Just French websites to go with this post, please! The next post in the series will feature a different country.

Islamophobic and proud of it!A reader wrote to us recently and referred to Gates of Vienna as “an effective propaganda institution.”

And so we are. That is indeed what we aspire to be, if we do our job right.

We are unabashed propagandizers of the Counterjihad. We have to be: the only way a couple of armchair pundits can play any part in this conflict is to help fight the information war.

We generate Islamophobic propaganda. And we’re proud of it.

Great idea, but can I suggest leaving the text off the calendar pictures? I think it's distracting, and the whole concept would be more effective with just the picture, IMHO.

Baron Bodissey said...

Zarxos --

That's an idea worth considering. Dymphna and I talked it over, and we though the best idea might be to put a single "Enough!" at the top of each image, in the language of the country depicted. Thus, above the Eiffel Tower would be "Suffit!"

I'll willing to entertain more suggestions.

Phanarath said...

I have been thinking the same as you just said there Baron.

It will have more style that way, and also it will be much easier to add more countries later.

But maybe there could be a logo or something added, to give it the "Series feel".

Phanarath said...

Or put all the languages that are not the relevant one in a bar in the bottom. That would look better and still give the feeling that this is bigger then the country in question.

READ THE KORAN

Spread the Dread!

The failure of the majority of people in the West to read this playbook of global imperialism and theocratic tyranny is a shameful signal of our intellectual and instinctual indifference to the miltant jihadists.

Millions in American read "Mein Kampf", in the 1930's, to become aware of what threatened from Nazism.

The Koran is far shorter a work.

And the threat is much greater.

(Keep up the good work, Baron, and Dymphna! Drops of water wear through stone.)

Baron Bodissey said...

Phan,

Those are both good ideas. I'll think about ways to work them in.

This is becoming a collective effort -- I like it that way.

How about a national flag in one corner and some islamic-type flag in the other corner? But don't want to take away from the basic beauty. On the actual calender how about noting on the dates some islamic overreaction or atrocity?

How about Notre Dame with minarets instead, and a headline like "Paris year ####" ?
At the bottom could be some supporting statistics, like "2 out of 5 newborns are muslim" and "##% of French muslims support sharia" (does such a statistic exist ?).

Why not also devote a month to the Hagia Sophia ?

Zerosumgame said...

Baron,

Do you plan to be at the Brussels rally?

I guess the personal finances are an issue, but maybe the SIOE forces can chip in as they did on the last trip.

Just be prepared to either be arrested for hate speech, or for you and the other protesters to get the c**p beaten out of you by crazed Moroccans that have taken over Brussels, while the police stand by and do nothing.

Baron Bodissey said...

Zero,

I may be going to Brussels; I'm keeping my options open. I can't afford it myself, but there is a possible benefactor, someone who would like me to be there...

max said...

I second the comment about dedicating a month to the Hagia Sophia.

Keep up the good work... we love it and it appreciate it here in America.
