Boulder, Colorado Grocery Shooting – An Anti-White Hate Crime

Joel Skousen breaks it down in his weekly World Affairs Brief very well(Subscribe for your weekly report):

Boulder, Colorado is a Left/liberal college town that has been preaching against “white privilege” for the last few years, in both high schools and the university. The town has long invited Muslim refugees to resettle there, insisting that this was the solution to the town’s “whiteness” problem. Proving that Muslim refugees don’t assimilate well in Western Society, Boulder finally got what they asked for—the ultimate destruction of white privilege in the wanton killing of 10 whites at a King Sooper grocery store by Ahmad Al Issa, a bitter and angry Muslim immigrant from Syria, who has been propagandized all through his school years about the evils of white prejudice and Islamophobia. And yet, no one in the media is willing to call this a racist hate crime despite the assailant’s long history of anger and hostility toward whites. Facebook even took down his profile page with telling anti-western rants in lock-step with the media’s efforts to shield the public from his anti-white extremists views. Why didn’t their supposed anti-racist algorithm flag it beforehand? Apparently the perpetrator did not fit the right-wing profile that typically triggers their censorship. Biden and his anti-gun lackeys are calling for a ban on assault style weapons and high capacity magazines. Biden is even reportedly trying to think of a way to do something by executive order, which itself is highly unconstitutional.

If the shooter had a “right-wing” background, the media would have been pillaring Alex Jones and Donald Trump for “promulgating and inflaming” his extremist views. As Tim Young tweeted, “It’s unclear how former President Trump motivated Al-Issa to carry out this attack, but we’re sure Rachel Maddow and CNN will fill in the blanks.

Of course, we will never see blame cast at the avalanche of left-wing anti-white, and anti-Christian propaganda sweeping the media, schools and even some churches in this country. Later in the brief, I will detail just how insane this material is. Newswars.com tells just how bad anti-white racial preferences were in Boulder.

For nearly a decade, liberal activists have focused on the alleged problems of “whiteness” within Boulder and have sought to increase the city’s diversity by importing Syrian migrants… according to the TRENDS Report, some 419 refugees became permanent legal residents of Boulder County between 2003 and 2013.”

Boulder’s then-mayor Suzanne Jones noted, “We have inclusivity aspirations that we are working to live up to.” The Boulder City Council then continued to hold votes to allow even more Syrian refugees to take up permanent residence in the city in a “declaration regarding inclusivity for the refugees and other disenfranchised populations.”

Even after the founder of Boulder’s largest Syrian refugee charity pleaded guilty to felony charges of embezzling more than $130,000 from his own organization in 2018, the city continued to push for racial change. Articles lamented the city’s “crushingly white majority population,” and liberal activists expressed horror about the city’s relatively small proportion of foreign-born residents.

Already the Left is trying to shield themselves from blame as the Daily Beast takes a mainstream view of events, promoting the notion that he was bullied in school and that this developed into mental illness, with no political overtones. The facts don’t bear this out. Dr. Jonathan Metzl, director of the Center for Medicine, Health and Society at Vanderbilt University confirms that, “There’s no psychotic illness whose symptom is shooting other people.”

Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa allegedly stalked through the Boulder supermarket on Monday afternoon with a rifle and a pistol, firing shot after shot, and stripping off his combat vest and clothing until surrendering to a SWAT team.

Going into a supermarket with that kind of combat preparation was clearly premeditated—not mental illness. The themes the media want you to focus on I’ve put in bold:

The motive for the nation’s second major mass shooting in a week remains unknown, but a family member said he believes the alleged shooter—a former high-school wrestler who was born in Syria but raised in Colorado—is mentally ill.

Ali Aliwi Alissa, 34, told The Daily Beast in a phone interview that his brother was paranoid, adding that in high school he would talk about “being chased, someone is behind him, someone is looking for him.”

When he was having lunch with my sister in a restaurant, he said, ‘People are in the parking lot, they are looking for me.’ She went out, and there was no one. We didn’t know what was going on in his head,” he said.

He said he was sure the shooting was “not at all a political statement, it’s mental illness.”

“The guy used to get bullied a lot in high school. He was like an outgoing kid, but after he went to high school and got bullied a lot, he started becoming anti-social,” the brother said.

Court records show Ahmad Alissa has at least one previous run-in with the law: an arrest after “cold cocking” a classmate at Arvada West High School in 2017.

According to court documents, Alissa punched a classmate in the head without warning after he “had made fun of him and called him racial names weeks earlier.” The victim suffered bruising, swelling, and cuts to the head. Alissa pleaded guilty to an assault charge and was sentenced to two months of probation and 48 hours of community service in connection with that episode.

An Arvada Police spokesperson also confirmed Alissa had two interactions with local cops over the “past few years,” including cases involving allegations of simple assault and criminal mischief.

Conrad, a former wrestling teammate of the suspect who spoke under the condition his last name be withheld, told The Daily Beast he was deeply surprised by the allegations, but that Alissa did have a temper.

“One thing I can tell you is he didn’t take losing very well,” he said. “I remember that in wrestling. He would throw his headgear, wouldn’t talk to the coaches when he lost. If I remember correctly, even cussed out one of the coaches one time.”

In one Facebook post, the suspect appeared to express fears that someone was targeting his phone for Islamophobic reasons. “Yeah if these racist islamophobic people would stop hacking my phone and let me have a normal life I probably could,” he posted in July 2019.

Then the media tries to downplay his connection to the Leftist anti-white agenda:

On Facebook, his politics appeared mixed throughout several camps. He shared an article rebuking Donald Trump’s stance on immigration, but also posted about his own opposition to gay marriage and abortion.

But the anti-gay and anti-abortion issues are not “right-wing” to Muslims, just part of their fundamentalist religious stance.

A day after the 2019 Christchurch mosque shootings in New Zealand, Alissa had shared a Facebook post from another user that read, “The Muslims at the #christchurch mosque were not the victims of a single shooter. They were the victims of the entire Islamophobia industry that vilified them.”

And who has been defending Islam, and blasting all criticism of Islamic terror as Islamophobia for the past decade? -The mainstream media. The author conveniently neglects to assign any blame or cause and effect. But the blame is not hard to find. The above Newswars article continued saying,

In 2019, residents engaged in “anti-racism training” provided by anti-white Black Lives Matter activists. Most recently, students at the University of Colorado Boulder were invited to take part in a webinar titled “Difficult Dialogues: Unpacking Whiteness (what it means to say that CU Boulder is ‘so white’),” which queried, “How can we engage the CU Boulder community about these issues, and how can white people address and combat white privilege and white supremacy in our classrooms, our departments, and the campus at large?”

Syrian-born Muslim Ahmad Al Issa, frequently complained about white people and threatened fake hate crimes charges against those he didn’t like. All of his victims were white.

Ahmad Al Issa would try to blame any problem he had with other students on Islamophobia and white privilege. He threatened more than once to have people charged with hate crimes. No one does that, or even knows that’s a legal possibility, unless they have been prompted by Leftist teachers pushing a particular PC agenda. When other students lashed back at his attacking attitude, he would always tell his family he was being “bullied.”

My Analysis:

I have long observed that people with chronic anger have a Satanic trigger set in their mind that inflames the mind to flare up in sudden rage at the least little irritation on things they are sensitive to. In extreme cases I believe this can become a form of partial possession where they are completely unaware that something external has implanted itself on their mind except that they can’t seem to control their high levels of anger. In Al-Issa’s case he was also having paranoid thoughts, always thinking some Islamophobe white person was following him in a threatening manner.

As I pointed out in my essay on the workings of conscience, no one commits suicide without letting Satan get into the mind and subject them to a drumbeat of depression and dark ideas. That is also true about chronic anger leading to these kinds of mass shootings. The Gateway Pundit found Al Issa’s fellow students confirmed this dangerous pattern of chronic anger: “Fellow students recall him as having a fierce temper that would flare in response to setbacks or slights.

I also think that no one goes out and commits these kinds of heinous crimes without partial possession by Satanic forces. A couple of bad ideas won’t do it alone. Psychologists can’t help in this because they are trained to never consider any idea of supernatural evil influence.

Satan’s work to implant dark ideas is also apparent in reports about the perpetrator of the mass shooting in Atlanta last week which left a total of 8 people dead, including 6 Asian women. The suspect, a white male, told police he is a sex addict and he wanted to eliminate locations he saw as temptations for his sex addiction. Of course, that one idea alone isn’t sufficient to drive a person to do a mass shooting. There has to exist a persistent degree of Satanic possession of a person’s mind to do that, and that can never happen unless a person has long ago become a chronic violator of the good signals in conscience.

What I mean by partial possession is not that Satanic forces take control of a person’s entire body as documented occasionally in the Bible, but rather when deep Satanic influence only controls the mind when certain irritations trigger severe depression or anger. Otherwise they can appear somewhat normal. The key recognition factor to watch for is when a person is much darker in attitude than their normal self.

Contrary to what Hollywood may sometimes present, no form of Satanic possession can take place to an innocent person against their will. The Lord doesn’t allow it. A person has to go down the long dark path of unjustified anger and rebellion to the promptings of conscience in order to lose the blessings of divine protection and let Satan take over.

And even then, Satan picks his human targets carefully to suit his worst agendas (suicide, rape and murder) —so that it isn’t obvious to everyone that Satan can actually possess or partially possess people’s minds to become evil. He has a heavy influence on all people who become unstable or evil, but it only drives a small percentage to do these horrific acts.

Whenever one of these shootings occurs I first look for signs of Deep State mind control and/or the presence of a second shooter or handler—anyone accompanying the mind control victim to ensure the deed gets done and that the killer’s hypnotic programming (to commit suicide afterward) kicks in, so the patsy can’t talk. I haven’t seen any evidence of that in these last two shootings, as of this writing.

The only thing close, so far, is that Al-Issa’s identity was previously known to the FBI because he was linked to someone who was under investigation by the bureau. For there to be mind control, there would have to have also been an FBI agent provocateur assigned to him, as has happened in nearly every FBI criminal indictments against young Muslim terrorists, driving them to plan acts of terrorism, so they can then be arrested. Often there is also the presence of a Deep State psychiatrist using hypnosis to do the actual mind control. Short of that, I look for Satanic influence, which is fully capable of getting susceptible people to commit any of these horrific acts.

Democrats and the media are primed to push more gun control with every mass shooting

Within hours, Biden called for a ban on “Assault Weapons” and “High-Capacity Magazines” and the legislation was already submitted in the House, just waiting for a trigger event to give it the necessary political boost. Biden said, rushing to judgment, “I don’t need to wait another minute let alone an hour to take common sense steps that will save lives in the future and to urge my colleagues in the House and Senate to act.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki (pronounced Saaki) revealed that Biden is considering taking executive action on gun control. The Gateway Pundit reports that Psaki said,

“We are considering a range of levers, including working through legislation, including executive action,” Psaki told reporters. “That has been under discussion and will continue to be under discussion.”

Modern presidents seem to have forgotten that executive orders can only direct agencies in the Executive branch to take limited actions, within existing law, but they cannot create new law or change law with an Executive Order.

House Democrats already passed two gun control bills and Biden urged the Senate to push the bills through. A couple weeks ago, Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA) and Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI) introduced a bill to ban “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines just hours after the Democrat-controlled House passed a gun control bill.

Biden said. “These are bills that received votes with both Republicans and Democrats in the House. This is not and should not be a partisan issue. This is an American issue that will save lives, American lives. And we have to act. We should also ban assault weapons in the process.”

Of course, Democrats do nothing about the hundreds of lives lost to violent crime shootings every day in Democrat run cities. And few of the perpetrators have ever bothered to obey legislated gun restrictions in these cities.

How disappointed the media must have been that the shooter wasn’t a white Trump supporter, instead of one of their protected minorities—a Syrian Muslim migrant. Infowars had this commentary on the epidemic of crime in leftist-run cities that have defunded police.

As mainstream media exploits certain shootings to push an anti-Second Amendment agenda, they totally ignore the gun homicides taking place in Democrat-run cities across the country. While any senseless act of violence should be condemned, establishment outlets seem to purposely ignore large numbers of Americans dying while highlighting events that help promote their narrative.

As of now, the media and Democrat politicians are using two recent shootings to ram through an “assault weapons” ban. Meanwhile, 15 people were shot, four killed, in Chicago on Monday alone. From Friday through Sunday in Chicago, 20 people were shot, four fatally. Shootings in Los Angeles are up 88% in the first two months of 2021, compared to last year. Portland, Oregon has seen nearly double the amount of shootings this year compared to the first two months of 2020. A couple of weeks ago, five children were shot in Baltimore in a six-day period.

NYC saw 20 residents shot in one weekend earlier in March, including a 17-year-old boy dying after being shot in the face and a Queens mother of two killed by a stray bullet. St. Louis police reported four separate shootings over one night while Austin, Texas officers responded to three different shootings in less than 24 hours earlier this month.

These tragic incidents take place every weekend in major U.S. cities, but Democrat politicians and activists totally ignore them. However, the awful murders the media does choose to focus on are used by left-wing politicians like Barack Obama and Joe Biden to advance anti-gun legislation.

There is going to be a huge fight over these gun bills, but this is the first time the Democrats have been in nominal control of both Houses of Congress, so it doesn’t bode well for gun rights. As the Daily Mail reported,

Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin said during a hearing on gun violence Tuesday that mass shootings in America is a “public health crisis.” [trying to take advantage of the Deep State’s enormous success in manipulating people with the grossly exaggerated Covid “health” crisis.] Senator Ted Cruz, who sits on Judiciary, said the hearing was just more “ridiculous theater” put on by Democrats in the fallout from mass shootings… The Texas senator also said the left’s solution on gun control always involves “taking away guns from law abiding citizens” [which never helps].

Finally, as John Cardillo tweeted, “Now that the Boulder shooter, Ahmad Al-Issa, is known to be a Middle Eastern Muslim male, the MSM [mainstream media] will of course conclude that he’s a lone wolf with mental issues and they and the FBI will close the case.”

Norway Parliament Extends ‘Hate Speech’ Legislation to Include Transgender

Norway’s parliament has voted to extend “Hate Speech” legislation against criticism of homosexuals—who have been “protected” since 1981—to “transgender” people. This means that a violent crime will be more harshly punished if it is considered to be motivated by hatred of transsexuals, and that it will be an offence to incite violence against them or use “dehumanizing” language against them both in public and in private [Norway outlaws hate speech against trans people, By Rachel Savage, Reuters, November 25, 2020].

“In private” would seem to imply something utterly Orwellian, making it an offense to “dehumanize” i.e. criticize transsexuals in conversations in your own home with your family, as some commentators have suggested [Norway Criminalizes Hate Speech Against Transgender People . . . In Private Homes or Conversationsby Jonathan Turley, JonathanTurley.com, November 29, 2020].

Not coincidentally, this soft totalitarianism is exactly what seems to be envisaged in the pro-immigration Scottish Nationalist Party’s very similar proposed legislation [SNP’s new hate crime law could see people prosecuted for expressing views in OWN HOMES. by Richard Percival, Express.co.uk, October 27, 2020] The bill is spearheaded by Scottish Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf (right) the son of Pakistani immigrants, and it is tempting to assume he is merely importing traditional Islamic intolerance of blasphemy. But I think it is really just the religion of multiculturalism becoming more extreme.

Having consulted a Norwegian lawyer, who naturally wishes to remain anonymous, I can tell you that, according to the law, you can receive up to three years in prison if you “incite against” or “dehumanize” a transsexual “in public.” This is broadly defined to include in publications, online, or in public places.

However, up to one year in prison can be handed down to “a person who in the presence of others purposefully or with extreme carelessness expresses something that afflicts someone present.” [The legislation can be found, in Norwegian, here or as translated by Google here].

In other words, if you have upset a transsexual in a private—such as in someone’s house or at a private party, in front of witnesses who will testify that you did this—then you can receive one year in prison in Norway. If you upset a transsexual in public, you can get three years.

Anine Kierulf, an assistant professor of law at the University of Oslo, told the Reuters news agency that the bar for prosecution is high and that “There are a lot of very hateful things you can say about the protected groups” [Norway outlaws hate speech against trans people, by Rachel Savage, Reuters, November 25, 2020].

But what “dehumanizes” is extremely subjective and this law is dangerous, more so than similar laws with regard to homosexuals or ethnic minorities, because almost all transsexuals, with the exception of the minority who experience their feelings for as long as they can remember, have very serious psychological problems.

In other words, they’re nuts. And in Norway today—and in the West in general? —they call the shots.

A tiny minority of transsexuals literally do seem to have the “wrong body.” They will feel that they are girls for as long as they can remember. But, in most cases, these feelings manifest at adolescence, as sex researcher Ray Blanchard has shown [Varieties of autogynephilia and their relationship to gender dysphoria, by Ray Blanchard, Archives of Sexual Behavior, 1993].

Prominent academics have garnered a large amount of evidence indicating that late onset transsexuality, especially to male-to-female late onset transsexuality, is a sexual fetish in which the transsexual is, in effect, sexually aroused by the idea of himself as a member of the opposite sex. In this sense, the transsexual is literally a Narcissist.

Indeed, it has been shown that “Narcissistic Personality Disorder”—in which you develop a bloated sense of self importance to cover up a fundamental sense of emptiness and despair—is very high among those who suffer from what is technically called “Gender Dysphoria.”

Consistent with this, it has been argued by one academic that the extraordinarily hostile and even violent reaction of transsexuals to scientists who do not accept that transsexuals are “born into the wrong body” is a classic example of “Narcissistic Rage”—when the Narcissist attempts to totally destroy anybody who forces him to question his own perfection; this self-perception being the only thing that stops him from sinking into the abyss of his own psychological emptiness [Shame and Narcissistic Rage in Autogynephilic Transsexualism, by Anne Lawrence, Archives of Sexual Behavior, 2008].

Is this “dehumanizing”? Surely, a case could at least be made that it is: “You are saying we are Narcissists. This will make people hate and exclude us. It is implying we are immoral.”

Considering the documented Narcissistic Rage of transsexuals, one can imagine Norwegian prosecutors being pressured to take someone to court for stating such obvious scientific facts.

Thus Norway and Scotland’s laws will prevent people from having reasonable discussions about social issues where those discussions might lead them to question the current dominant Narrative. In fact, this seems to be the point of such laws.

But it gets worse. There is large body of evidence that male-to-female transsexuals are highly masculinized. They are more likely to be autistic, to have a hand shape that betokens high testosterone, to be male, and to heterosexual (rendering them “lesbians” once they “transition”).

This is because being highly masculinized is associated with autism, which is associated with focusing on objects, and thus with fetishism.

Autism is also associated with a weak understanding of who you are. Sufferers perceive the world as huge, swirling mass of detail without clear “boundaries” and this extends to how they see themselves, resulting in a weak sense of self, changes in identity, and an intense need for control [Sense of Self in Autism, by Michael Jawer, Psychology Today, August 7, 2014].

This is why autism correlates with anorexia, as the sufferer feels they at least “control” their body [Gender Dysphoria and Transgender Identity Is Associated with Physiological and Psychological Masculinization, by Edward Dutton & Guy Madison, Sexual Research and Social Policy, 2020].

Add Narcissism, also much higher among males, into the brew and you have transsexuality.

Could pointing these things out be “dehumanizing”?

Probably not, but it has, it seems, resulted in a highly emotional response claiming that the research “risk(s) causing serious harm to already-marginalized groups” by an academic called “Reubs J. Walsh” [“Masculine” Describes Gender Expressions, Not Neurobiologies: Response to Dutton and Madison (2020), by Reubs J. Walsh, Sexual Research and Social Policy, 2020] who is, of course, a male-to-female transsexual.

But what if we add that transsexuals seem to be genetically sick—more likely that “cis” people to develop cancer, arthritis, and even deafness? [Global health burden and needs of transgender populations: a review, by Sari Reisner et al., The Lancet, 2016].

This all implies that they are high in what scientists call “mutational load” . . . compared to “cis” people, in other words, they are “mutants.”

Arguably this is “dehumanizing,” but it remains a scientific fact. It probably wouldn’t lead to prosecution—but how can you be sure?

So, just when transsexuals come to prominence, Norway passes a law which potentially interferes with rational discussion of their nature. Worse still, it passes a law that potentially makes it a crime to make this point to a transsexual in private, or even to say them within earshot of a transsexual in private.

Transsexuals must be protected from hearing the scientific truth about themselves, lest it puncture the Narcissism which allows them to get through life.

Hopefully, the Norway which has stood so valiantly against globalism, in contrast to its anti-democratic neighbour Sweden, will wake up to the danger of this law and do something about it.

Report: European Union paid €36.5 Million to Groups with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood

“Apparently, the EU has been funding front organizations with our tax Euros which have close ties to extremist, terror-related organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood”, said EU parliament budget committee member Joachim Kuhs (I&D). “This is a massive scandal, and must be stopped immediately.”

Iran Launches Dozens of Missiles at U.S. Targets in Iraq

Iran began to launch over a dozen ballistic missiles targeting U.S. airbases in Iraq on Tuesday, U.S. officials confirmed.

Iran is taking credit for a rocket attack targeting the al-Assad airbase in Iraq, which houses U.S. troops. They announced that the missiles were part of “Shahid [martyr] Soleimani Operation,” hinting at an extended military operation against the United States. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) – not Hezbollah or one of many Iranian proxies in Iraq – took credit for the bombs.

Iranian state media did note later in the night Eastern time that the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) – a coalition of pro-Iran Shiite militias that Iraq has legalized into a formal wing of its armed forces, had “announced the start of Crushing Response Operation to the United States.”

As the PMF are legally a wing of the Iraqi military, any formal military operation on their part would constitute a military attack by Iraq against the United States. The U.S. military cooperated with the PMF in strategic operations against the Islamic State and recently suspended training operations for Iraqi troops.

“IRGC announced further details will be revealed soon,” several Iranian media outlets noted.

PressTV later carried a statement from the IRGC warning nations allied with the United States to cut ties or face military attack.

“We warn US allies providing bases for the [American] terrorist army … that any country serving as the origin of bellicose and aggressive attacks in any form against the Islamic Republic of Iran will be targeted,” the IRGC statement reportedly read.

The IRGC is a U.S. designated terrorist organization. The Iranian government branded the U.S. military a terrorist organization in response to the designation on the IRGC in April 2019.

Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs Jonathan Hoffman said in a statement:

At approximately 5:30 p.m. (EST) on January 7, Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against U.S. military and coalition forces in Iraq. It is clear that these missiles were launched from Iran and targeted at least two Iraqi military bases hosting U.S. military and coalition personnel at Al-Assad and Irbil. We are working on initial battle damage assessments.In recent days and in response to Iranian threats and actions, the Department of Defense has taken all appropriate measures to safeguard our personnel and partners. These bases have been on high alert due to indications that the Iranian regime planned to attack our forces and interests in the region. As we evaluate the situation and our response, we will take all necessary measures to protect and defend U.S. personnel, partners, and allies in the region. Due to the dynamic nature of the situation, we will continue to provide updates as they become available.

Iranian state TV claimed that the attack is in retaliation for the death of terrorist mastermind Qasem Soleimani, the late head of the IRGC Quds Force. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard also issued a warning to American allies, including Israel.

“We are warning all American allies, who gave their bases to its terrorist army, that any territory that is the starting point of aggressive acts against Iran will be targeted,” the Guard said via the IRNA news agency.

The Fars News Agency, an Iranian state broadcaster, posted a live video feed of the assault online. PressTV claimed that the assault consisted of “tens of surface-to-surface missiles.”

Since the initial reports of the attack, multiple media sources are confirming the beginning of a second wave of rocket fire.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said the president is “monitoring the situation closely”:

Neither Iranian media nor the U.S. government officials have confirmed any casualties in relation to the rocket attacks, nor any property damage.

After online rumors initially suggested that President Donald Trump may address the nation regarding the attack, New York Times and Fox News reporters asserted that Trump would not be delivering remarks.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued notices banning American flights over several Mideast regions following the attack.

Report: Record 3,000 Christian Sites in Europe Vandalized in 2019

Christian sites in Europe suffered a record number of attacks in the year 2019, with some 3,000 Christian churches, schools, cemeteries, and monuments vandalized, looted, or defaced.

Reports compiling the anti-Christian acts during the year document a range of profanation including arson, defecation, desecration, looting, mockery, Satanism, theft, urination, and vandalism.

“Sadly, 2019 was punctuated by increasing incidents of desecration and vandalism of churches around Europe, along with the 2019 fire at the Notre-Dame Cathedral, which captured worldwide attention,” the director of The Observatory on Intolerance and Discrimination Against Christians in Europe, Ellen Fantini, told Breitbart News on Saturday.

“In most instances the perpetrators of these acts were unidentified, but the Observatory has documented that churches and other symbols of Christianity in Europe are targets for many groups — from Islamists to radical feminists, LGBT activists to anarchists and self-proclaimed Satanists,” Ms. Fantini said.

In all, some 3,000 Christian churches, schools, cemeteries, and monuments were vandalized, looted or defaced in Europe during 2019, making it a record year for anti-Christian sacrilege.

The greatest number of acts of violence against Christian sites have occurred in France, where churches, schools, cemeteries, and monuments “are being vandalized, desecrated, and burned at an average rate of three per day,” according to reports citing government statistics.

Germany is not far behind, with attacks against Christian churches happening at an average rate of two per day. Meanwhile, attacks on Christian churches and symbols regularly occurred in 2019 in Belgium, the UK, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, and Spain as well.

While the violence overwhelmingly involves Roman Catholic sites and symbols, in Germany, Protestant churches have also been targeted.

Police and mainstream media almost always censor information about the identities and ethnic backgrounds of the perpetrators, so it is difficult to get a clear idea as to who is committing the crimes and the motives behind them — especially when they are religiously driven.

In France and Germany, the sharp rise in anti-Christian attacks has coincided with the recent mass immigration from the Muslim world, yet the lack of official statistics makes it impossible to know precisely how many attacks can be attributed to Islamic anti-Christian hostility.

“European governments and politicians, with a few exceptions, seem reluctant to address this problem,” Ms. Fantini told Breitbart.

Fantini said she agrees with former UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt that “the UK and other Western governments have not grappled with the issue perhaps because of a misguided political correctness or an instinctive reluctance to talk about religion.”

In 2019, only nine European states reported hate crime data relating to Christians to the OSCE for their hate crime report, Fantini noted, which is fewer than the number of states that report hate crimes with an anti-Muslim or antisemitic bias.

According to Bishop Dominique Rey of Fréjus-Toulon, we are “witnessing the convergence of laicism – conceived as secularism, which relegates the faithful only to the private sphere and where every religious denomination is banal or stigmatized – with the overwhelming emergence of Islam, which attacks the infidels and those who reject the Koran.

“On one hand, we are mocked by the media that discredit the action of the Church, in particular regarding sexual abuse, and on the other, there is the strengthening of Islamic fundamentalism. These are two joint realities,” he said.
