Gates of Vienna News Feed 10/30/2011

Gates of Vienna News Feed 10/30/2011Dymphna and I were away for most of the day today visiting family, so both posting and the news feed are light.

A 17-year-old Coptic Christian high school student in Egypt was beaten to death by his classmates, in a classroom, for displaying a cross on a chain around his neck. The crime occurred on October 16th, but initial accounts by the media and the authorities failed to mention the role that religious enmity played in the attack. However, later reports by witnesses indicated that the fury of the boy’s murderers was aroused when he pulled the cross out from under his shirt where his Muslim classmates could see it.

In other news, Danish farmers will reportedly lose billions of kroner when the EU shifts some of its agricultural subsidies to other parts of Europe.

The EU giveth, the EU taketh away. Danish farmers are livid at having their subsidies taken away to encourage less efficient farming, while Greece faces fines for impeding domestic services with bureaucratic red tape.

The EU will destroy Europe. It will erode the ability of countries to make their own economic decisions, and accept the consequences. It will also stifle any sort of competitive enterprise. Worse, the EU will dismantle any attempt by European countries to protect their own borders. My first thought is that Denmark is being punished for keeping out immigrants recently.

This type of behavior is well documented for individuals. It is a new phenomenon, but perfectly predictable, but disconcerting, to see it in entire countries.

Countries of Europe. Quit the EU. You have nothing to lose but your chains and your subsidies.

RonaldB: "Countries of Europe. Quit the EU. You have nothing to lose but your chains and your subsidies."

Would that it were so....

The EU has trained a trans-border army meant to be used against the rioting citizens of member states who would try to quit the EU.

An inquiring mind would ask with interest whether the Muslim hordes are being imported to be available for recruitment...

Praytell: After state training, would an implanted Muslim hesitate to murder an indigenous European?

Foreign riot police may now be operating in Greece.

I highly recommend that ALL of you read both this important editorial and its comments.

Commenter Sean reveals: "the European Union Charter, which says that there is no death penalty, and then it has a footnote, which says, “except in the case of war, riots, upheaval”—then the death penalty is possible. could get interesting!
