Gates of Vienna News Feed 6/22/2012

Gates of Vienna News Feed 6/22/2012The trial of Anders Behring Breivik came to an end today in Oslo. The Butcher of Utøya was given a substantial block of time for final pronouncements on topics of his choice. Some of the spectators in the courtroom, including representatives of the survivors’ families, walked out early in protest.

In other news, Islamic terrorists shot their way into a resort in Afghanistan, and at least 26 people were killed, including 15 civilians, several police officers, and the seven killers themselves. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, saying that the women at the resort were behaving shamelessly by dancing and so on, in violation of Islamic law.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in Afghanistan, at a conference about women’s issues the Afghan justice minister said that women who ran away to shelters for abused women were “prostitutes”. EU foreign minister Baroness Catherine Ashton said she was “deeply troubled” by her fellow minister’s comments.

Here's one on Shakespeare and multiculturalism in the context of living in England, about two programmes on BBC2 last night:

Afghanistan has a resort?

Putting things into perspective

Paying attention to what has been going on in a courtroom recently, how could you ever think it necessary at the very same time to storm a restaurant to free the guests from misunderstanders, somewhere idyllic in the outskirts of Kabul?

Why is it necessary to fight the misunderstanders?

Plenty of
food for thought to those walking out from that courtroom in Oslo last Friday, after the Breivik case is over, in this round.

The gold treasure in Germany

"But did the merchants' extensive trading networks reach as far as the remote mines in Central Asia as long ago as the 2nd century B.C.?"

"Whether the treasure found inland from the North Sea coast truly originated in the faraway steppes remains disputable for now"

- Why not?

"Oseberg is the name of a Viking ship burial, located about 95 kilometers south of Oslo, on the banks of the Oslo Fjord in Vestfold county, Norway. Oseberg is one of several ship burials in the Slagen district, but it is the richest of such burials."

"DNA could only be retrieved from the younger woman, and it suggests she may have originated from the Black Sea region."

"...as long ago as the 2nd century BC", - the time of the
Roman Empire...

"Their growing empire after 300 BC was gradually aided by a substantial increase in gold supplies"

"To the Romans, gold was not only for jewellery, which became almost commonplace, but for coinage. The Roman empire brought the widespread use of gold ..."

Turkifying the German army?

On his visit to Ankara last Wednesday, the German Christian Democrat saluted the Turkish army by shouting "Merhabe asker!", "Good day, soldiers!"

To date one quarter of the German army is from diversity, according to Novopress.

From Anders Behring Breivik's concluding speach in court:

(...)
But the current regime is not interested in going into dialogue with us, so we have nothing to lose and the conflict will escalate over the coming years. It may not be tactical to do this, in that the prosecutor "shoots"/threatens with the mental incapacity, but I must express my idea of a peace settlement that could save many lives in the future.

The starting point could be that we get control over an area equivalent to about 1-2 per cent of the country and that this area increases proportionally with our growth. If we do not succeed and do flourish, an autonomous state will and could not be developed. This political model is simila to political solution related to indigenous peoples in other parts of the world.

The smartest thing that could have been done is to give us autonomy, autonomy within a certain area of Norway. We people who oppose mass immigration and multiculturalism or in other words, the national conservatives, the orthodox Christians and the National Socialists. Such a solution would be good for both parties. Marxists and liberals did not have to feel our anger and resentmentand and complaining about the current state. And we did not have to live in a multi-ethnic hell. A solution like this can be used in all European countries and can thus prevent further escalation of the conflict between cultural conservatives and multiculturalists.

Has Turkey by the plane shot down, been provoking in order to drag NATO into Syria now?

M-free land

Breivik is looking many moves ahead, which makes it difficult to see any reason to follow the ideas which again may look far out

Speaking of news, here's one on cultural enrichers.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-18519395

Excerpt:

"The EU should "do its best to undermine" the "homogeneity" of its member states, the UN's special representative for migration has said.

Peter Sutherland told peers the future prosperity of many EU states depended on them becoming multicultural.

He also suggested the UK government's immigration policy had no basis in international law. "

Sickening isn't it? Got a fat, degenerate old goat whose time on this planet is quite short, who is bound and determined to turn Europe into a 3rd world hell hole.

If that was Breivik's closing statement he is certainly totally sane. He is trying to think of a
solution to the Moslem Question and
mass immigration into Norway.

Another piece from the Breivik
concluding speach in court:

(...)
The court should remember that the biased judges who worked for Hitler's Germany were convicted by history after the war.

Likewise, history will judge the judges in this case. History will show whether they condemned a man who tried to stop the evils of our day. History shows that sometimes you have to commit barbarism to stop an even greater barbarism.

The judges who sit here today can judge me at their sole discretion. If you choose to acknowledge my claim of necessity, you will very effectively send a lot of shock waves through the existing illegitimate groups (...)

Then I come to the last point. Prosecution lawyers have previously called me a child murderer. But we all know that the average age of those on the island were over 18 years, even if not counting the adults.

The average age of soldiers in the world wars were 18. Many of our soldiers in Afghanistan are 18. Does that mean that we send children to war?

The authorities are themselves guilty of mass murder of children in hospitals across the country. Thousands of children are killed every year through abortion. Muslims do not practize abortion because Sharia does not allow it.
The Laborparty is thus guilty of mass murder, while at the same time using the low birth rate to justify mass immigration.

The two judges, Arntzen and Lyng, are the grandchildren of Arntzen and Lyng who were important prosecutors after the WW2 trials in Norway.

Countries like people become sick and diseased. Using the Balkans and Somalia as the model of society to imitate is clearly insane. Good luck to the peoples currently "camping" around on the peninsula. The future is looking good.
