BBC and WYD: support for the violent anti-Catholic so-called “indignados”

A demonstrator against the Pope's visit shouts at a praying pilgrim

A demonstrator against the Pope's visit shouts at a praying pilgrim

BeliefNet has a very good comment on the subject:

“Over a hundred of these fringe protest groups coalesced, as they so often do, into a confused mêlée of conflicting special interests,” reported Yiannopoulos. “They were united, however, in the sheer nastiness with which they expressed their views. To give but one example — as pilgrims sang “Hallelujah”, “Long Live the Pope!” and Benedicto!” demonstrators responded with shrieks of “Nazis!” and “Padophiles, watch out children!”

“So much for the inclusive tolerance trumpeted by the Left,” writes Yiannopolos. ”Here in Madrid was its real face: a sneering, violent mob of self-righteous bullies who thought it appropriate to hurl abuse at children for the crime of having pride in their faith and being excited about by a visit from the Holy Father.”

Yesterday, police had to protect us from an “indignados’” mob who wanted to “beat us” just for being Catholics and the day before yesterday, pilgrims were targeted (most of them youngsters and one of them in a wheelchair) because “Catholics provoke us, they shouldn’t exist. We should burn them alive like in 1936“. Everything with this kind of “beautiful” and “elegant” images, which tried to mock Christian Catholic faith:

A penis with a rosary hanging from it: they pretend to critisize Catholics with that

A penis with a supposed rosary hanging from it: they pretend to critisize Catholics with that


1936. Most of my family was murdered that same year because they were Catholic and Libertarian-Conservatives. I hope history doesn’t repeat itself.

Anyway, as Catholic Herald writes: “Madrid will never forget this scenes of devotion” and “The street party pauses for the Way of the Cross“.

More photos here.

A note: this event hasn’t cost the taxpayers a dime, because it has been paid by the pilgrims (70% of the total cost) and the sponsors (the rest 30%).

WYD 2011 Madrid

This week there will be no posts here at T&P. At home, we are preparing for Pope Benedict’s arrival in Madrid for the WYD 2011.

More than 1 million and a half are to arrive this week to celebrate this great event for all the Catholics. There are people from India, Yemen, Ethiopia, Poland, USA, United Kingdom, Canada, France, Italy, Portugal, Chile, Mexico, etc, etc. The organization has even scheduled events regarding religious persecution with both a photo-exhibit and some speeches by people who have suffered persecution.

Tu est Petrus, et super hanc petram aedificabo Aeclessiam meam (St. Matthew, 16, 18).

Have a very good week you all! God Bless!

Spain: Zapatero wants Morocco and Turkey in the EU as a “gesture of conciliation with the Islamic world”

You know, the only problem Spain has nowadays is, of course, that Turkey and Morocco (an autocratic Monarchy in which the King is also the “Commander of the Believers…) aren’t members of the European Union. Absolutely appalling.

José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero - Royal & Zapater...

That the only casualties of the twin bombings of Norway are European origin and people outside the Islamic religion has not prevented the Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, calling on EU leaders for Morocco and Turkey to be allowed entry into the European Union as a gesture of reconciliation with the Islamic world.

The Spanish Government’s President spoke about that support in phone calls to both to the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and the Alawite ruler of Morocco (what do Erdogan and King Mohammed VI have to do with Norwegian murder? No Muslim was murdered, no Moroccan or Turkish citizen was murdered or hurt…), in which he reiterated his commitment to the alliance of civilizations as the only way possible for a north-south agreement. Zapatero argues that both Turkey and Morocco meet the requirements set by the EU to join their project. Continue reading

Spain: Two Islamic associations from Lérida ask Local Council to forbid dogs in buses in public areas

Two Islamic organizations based in Lerida have asked the City Council to enact local rules to prohibit the presence of dogs in both city buses and in some areas frequented mostly by Muslims, as dogs are considered “unclean” in Islam.

Those associations are the same that made claims against the city ordinance that banned the burqa. Lleida believe that the Consistory should regulate the presence of dogs in public places and in certain municipal facilities “not to offend Muslims”. Continue reading

Spain: 1,000 mosques according to the Justice Ministry

Francisco Caamaño, ministro de Xustiza

Image by xornalcerto via Flickr

The Ministry of Justice led by Francisco Caamaño published a few days ago the map of places of worship recorded at the so-called Observatory of Religious Pluralism. The census of mosques opened in Spain counted up to 1,000 mosques where Muslims can pray. There is nothing wrong … except for one detail. We do not have news about the observatory living up to its name by contacting the Islamic countries to demand that “pluralism” it defends. There is no reciprocity. Opening a Catholic church remains a challenge. And having a Bible, foolhardy. It can’t be understood.

Spain: “the symbol of the European liberation by Islamic revolution”

Islamist/Islamic propaganda at its best:

Western Political correctness refers to them as “extremists.” But their statements and points of view can only be considered as “extremist” because of their extreme brutality. Lately some of the higher clergymen of Iran express themselves in a more “Quranic” way than ever. And show a striking setting with Spain, but not, as usual, with Spanish Al Andalus, but with nowaday’s Spain, which, in their eyes, is a kind of helpless orphan abandoned to their fate in the infidel lands being harassed by “the more arrogant powers” in the world.

A few weeks ago, during the full swing of the so-called ‘Movement 15-M’, Iran was swarmed by statements of high officials of the regime, linking the protests in Spain with the “waves of freedom brought by Islam to the Iberian peninsula for centuries“. A brigadier general stated to a semi-official Iranian agency, that “the Spanish release” was just one example of the “pursuit of freedom” by the Europeans, “a freedom like the one, coincidentally, brought the Muslim invasion of the peninsula“.

Ali Khamenei has been the supreme leader of Ir...

Ayatollah Khamenei. Image via Wikipedia

Thus, Al Andalus is still an example for the liberation of the oppressed Europeans: “Similar to the expansion of Islam into Europe via Spain for several centuries, the growing waves of arousal appear to spread from the Middle East and North Africa to Europe across the country, where thousands of demonstrators have begun concentrations in Spain for a few days“(ND). It is, ultimately, the new European salvation that comes through the Gibraltar Strait.

The very Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei, had already spoken about the “waves of awakening” that crash not only the Arab world, but also the European democracies. Those waves are just encouraging imitations of the Iranian Islamic Revolution, a move that will reach “the very heart of Europe” and will permit the inhabitants to get rid of the “economic and cultural policies of the United States and the Zionists” (ND).

Spain: more information on the Fuengirola murder (ACT.)

I hope that the people who blog about this, literally COPYING the translation I have made will have the decency of, at least, linking this post:

The Gaze of Salvador Dali seems a macabre announcement of the tragedy that lies behind the door on which is printed. It’s the photo of the room 505 of the thematic hostelEl Cid, Fuengirola. The irregular lines confirm that police precinct has been the scene of a crime. S. E. C., a Swedish student who died 18 years beheaded. Her friend, whom she was on vacation with, was stabbed but managed to save.

One floor below is another precinct. Room 404, also palindromic. Beethoven. There he stayed until yesterday, a 30-year-old Moroccan named Abselam B. The man who allegedly stabbed two girls and was surprised by the receptionist at the hotel with a knife. The individual is in police custody as the alleged perpetrator. Investigators believe he came to the room with the intention of sexually assaulting them, according to central government representatives.

On the third floor there is no seal, but another main character of the case. A national police who is doing his internship course  in Marbella and was on holiday in Fuengirola. He is the officer who chased Abselam down the stairs and held him until colleagues arrived.

The victims were staying on Wednesday at the hostel, situated in the central avenue of the Condes de San Isidro to celebrate the end of the school year. They had come to visit a friend who was in Fuengirola. They were scheduled to leave on Friday, but they paid the bill and decided to extend their stay until Sunday.

Abselam went to Fuengirola on Friday. The Moroccan, who is a legal resident in Spain, had worked in construction, but was now unemployed. He doesn’t have any criminal record. He had lived in Las Gabias, a town in the province of Granada, but recently stopped by Mijas coast, where he rented an apartment. On Thursday, the lease ended, so he went on looking for a room in the hotel, where he reserved only for one day.

On Friday night, both groups went separately to walk around Fuengirola. “It seems that they coincided in a nightclub,” comments the director and owner of the Hostal El Cid, Carlos Lombardi. The girls returned to the hotel establishment about two-thirty in the morning. They greeted the receptionist and went to their room.

At 3.22 hours Abselam arrived. He was wearing a gray shirt and white pants. He wore a plastic cup in hand. At the desk, the clerk had the impression that he was drunk. He handed over the keys to the 404 and put his hand on the back to help him enter.

What happened next is what the National Police is trying to clarify. “The door to the room the girls were not forced. It is not known how he got into, “says Lombardi. But everyone knows the outcome. Antonio Serrano, the receptionist, heard the screams of one of the girls coming down the stairs. It was bloody. He kept repeating the words “crazy” (crazy in English) and “knife” (knife).

S. E. C. was lying dead on the floor of her room 505. He had several stab wounds, one deep in the neck. Apparently, her hands still held a few strands of the agressor’s hair that she pulled out in the struggle. Her friend, 19, suffered three cuts on her arms and one in the neck that nearly reached a vital area. She was evacuated to hospital, but soon after she was discharged and went to the police station to testify.

The cries of the girl woke up several guests of the hotel, including the policeman who was staying on the third floor. He punt on his trousers and went downstairs to see what was happening. Then he found Abselam, who was running down the stairs. He reduced him until his companions arrived and took charge of the detainee. The Moroccan also has stab wounds, possibly as a result of the struggle. At press time, he remained in the cells at the police station in Fuengirola awaiting questioning.

The injured Swede, who had been stabbed at her hotel in Figuerola del Camp and taken to a nearby hospital, was treated for cuts on her hands and neck.

She was released from the hospital Saturday and taken to the local police station, according to Spanish authorities.

“The doctor told her that she had been very lucky because she had an injury to her neck that could have been fatal,” a source close to the investigation told local newspaper El Pais.

Novelist Reyes Monforte: “We have the enemy at home”

Reyes Monforte

When you know that a novel or a film is based on a true story, you think a little more about it, it affects you more“, believes Monforte. Her new book (The infidel) tells the story of Sara, a woman who leaves her life when she falls in love with a young Muslim whom she teaches Spanish to. The problem is that this young man is actually an Islamic terrorist. Everything is then compounded into a mixture of love, hate, betrayal and revenge with which the journalist and writer intended to make a warning: “We have to know  what we have in our home. This story seems just fit for a film, but it is something that is happening today and who knows if it is happening in our street or block. We have the enemy at home without knowing what happens, while they are very smart and know how to be silent. They work very quietly, do not raise suspicion, pretend to be something they are not, that’s why we are so surprised.”.

Spain: the Govt wants to forbid religious images in taxis

This verges on obsession… if in the end is true (something that is possible and probable):

Assumption of the Virgin Mary (Rubens)

Image via Wikipedia

It is not uncommon to see in taxis religious images, especially of the Virgin Mary, among the self-employed taxi sector. This tradition continues especially in Andalusia, where the image of a local virgin, as well as of St. Christopher, patron saint of drivers, have become iconic symbols for these workers. Industry representatives have complained that, with the Religious Freedom Act, will be forced to remove religious symbols from their cars. The Government contends that, under the principle of secularism, possession of symbols or clothing that express a religious affiliation in public services be prohibited.
This law prohibits carrying “overt” symbols (ie visible and taken with the intent to be seen) of belonging to a religion. “Instead of banning things that do not harm anyone, the Govt should worry about those who search through Spanish dumpsters for food“,complains Alvaro Sevilla, a taxi driver that has no problem in displaying an image of the Virgen del Rocío over the glove compartment of his vehicle. Like him, his colleagues do not understand a measure that would end a practice of many taxi drivers, so they require “greater flexibility in this regard
“There is no secular symbol that comfors me more than a picture of the Virgen del Carmen”, says Alberto Ibáñez, a businessperson from Cordoba. He remembers excited a serious accident at the entrance of Lucena and in which he was miraculously saved by that image. At least he feels that and hasn’t found any standard secular value that makes he think otherwise. Another partner of the province of Montilla  (Cordoba) recalled that on one occasion, a temporary worker from the Maghreb complained about the presence of a small crucifix with the wheel and for that reason, refused to travel on board in the “blasphemous” vehicle.

Gadafi ordered mass rapes, his daughter sues NATO troops

The International Criminal Court (ICC) yesterday accused Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi to use rape as a weapon of war against hundreds of women, in a bid to curb the rebels fighting for his resignation.

There is evidence that Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi ordered mass rape and sexual drug shipments purchased for the troops to attack the women, “said Luis Moreno-Ocampo, chief prosecutor of the ICC, based in the Dutch city of The Hague.

Speaking to the press, Moreno-Ocampo said that this is a new aspect of the repression of Colonel Gaddafi, who will join the other charges brought against him, according to a report of Radio Nederland.

Meanwhile, his daughter has sued NATO troops over deadly NATO air strike:

“The target was a civil building inhabited by civilians and was neither a command post nor a military control [centre] of the Libyan regime,” the legal papers state.

Spain: Politician receives death threats in music video by “Islam”

Pilar Rahola.

The police has increased security around Pilar Rahola after the journalist and author received death threats through a video posted on YouTube recorded by a band called “Islam“, as reported –Death threats against Pilar Rahola-. The song reads, and repeatedly, “I will kill Pilar Rahola” and the recording uploaded to the Internet is accompanied by white photography and denied a woman completely covered by a burka.

She has already filed a complaint with the police.

Although a leftist, she has distinguished herself for the defense of women against Islamic abuses.

Arranged marriages in Spain?

Yes, they exist among Muslim immigrants. Of course, normally women who suffer them, do not report them to the police or the authorities. With a few exceptions such as this one:

Nadia E., is a 21-year-old who moved from Morocco to La Seu d’Urgell (Lleida) two years ago. She reported him to the police after she wasn’t allowed to leave home without the use of clothing that concealed her entire body. He didn’t let her learn Spanish either. They were two of the alleged impositions she suffered from her husband, whom she married in an arranged marriage by parents of both in their native country.

… The victim said in court that he controlled her every move, forcing her to tell him when she exited and entered home, where she was going to and the name of the people she was going to speak to. She said her husband controlled her even when she was going to buy bread and required her to have all the windows closed. She added that her husband insulted and slapped her on a regular basis. He once threatened to kill her also saying he was going to throw her from the balcony.

Spain: Moroccan arrested on Jihad recruiting activities

The roommate of the young Moroccan arrested in Gran Canaria for alleged links with Al Qaeda cells, Othaman Elovadi, said that Imad El Mouahhid “is a mentally ill person. ” Elovadi, who ensured that the detainee takes drugs, had known him since 2003 and was at home when the police raided it.

The young Moroccan is accused of glorifying terrorism and proselytism. Presumably, El Mouahhid recruited young people and tried to persuade them to take part in terrorist activities.

He is a 25 year old, born in Tangiers (Morocco), who has been living in Spain for at least 8 years. His roommate described him as an authoritarian and mentally unstable person.

The Interior Ministry has been investigating him for three years following a possible link to Al Qaeda cells in Spain and it looks like he was part of the Moroccan Islamic Combatant Group, an Islamist cell which is linked to the March 11th bombings in Madrid.

Spain: Catalan Govt will make imams speak Catalan

Found here:

The Directorate General of Religious Affairs of the Generalitat of Catalonia will promote Catalan language among religious leaders of all faiths, mostly imams to help their communities to integrate and avoid creating ghettos. The responsible for the direction, Xavier Puig, has reaffirmed his support to the promotion of Catalan among imams, and announced that “this desire for integration and effort also calls on religious leaders of other faiths“. “They should make an effort to integrate into the culture and speak the language, whatever their native language to prevent precisely possible ghettos. “

When I read that, I immediately remembered Houzi, the fundamentalist imam of Lleida:

The wife of Moroccan attending the meetings has told you that on Sunday the imam said, “Take advantage of independence because they rely on us to get votes but they do not know is that when they leave us to vote all vote Islamic parties because we do not think left and right. This will make us win mayoral and from there with the great powers of the autonomous start implementing Islam. “

Do you know why? Because Mr Puig is not making them learn Catalan because they understand it’s good for them to integrate (whatever I believe about making them speak Catalan and not Spanish…). No, they have been promised a mosque in Barcelone in exchange of learning Catalan. Not because it’s their obligation as a result of living there.

Spain: Salafist Imam wants to spread his Islamist police to other cities

Abdelwahab Houzi

Lérida’s imam Abdelwahab Houzi is promoting the deployment of “religious police” in various municipalities, including Olot, similar to the one created in the city under his fanatic preachings. He uses that police to monitor and, where appropriate, punish, even physically, those Muslims who do not meet his fundamentalist interpretation of Islamic law.

… The “religious police“, which has been acting for some time in Lérida, is composed of half a dozen individuals, under the direct orders of the radical cleric. Its mission is to ensure that the Muslim population there, complies fully with established precepts of the Wahhabism, the movement which Abdelwahab Houzi belongs to. Wahhabism is a fundamentalist Islamic ideology, linked to Sunni Islam, and whose origins are in Saudi Arabia. Two of its features are its radicalism and its capacity to expand. For that, they use sources of power they have already achieved. In this case, the mosque used by Hoizi is the one called Ibn Hazm, the most important of Lérida. Although the City Council of the Catalan capital has sealed the mosque for security reasons as it has come to accept in the hours of prayer over a thousand followers, when their capacity only allows 200, the imam has warned that he will build another one with funds from Saudi Arabia and the Alawite regime in Morocco.

Someone saying Morocco is a “moderate” country?

Mr Houzi has also defended polygamy and has made it clear he wants to take advantage of independentist parties to make Islamism grow in Catalonia:

Muslims should vote for pro-independency parties, as they rely on us to get votes. But what they do not know is that, when they let us vote, we’ll all vote for Islamic parties because we do not believe in left and right. This will make us win local councils and from there with the great powers of Catalan autonomy, Islam will begin to be implemented“.

Spain: Muslim Ham-o-phobia update

Spanish ham (absolutely offensive to "Ham-o-phobic" Muslims...)

The Muslim boy who sued his teacher because he was speaking about making Spanish ham, has accused the teacher of telling him to go back to HIS country (they have come from Morocco). I don’t really believe that accusation, although the student’s parents have already announced that they are going as far as it’s needed, because they “don’t want this to happen to another Moroccan or Colombian”. The Prosecutor’s office has already said there is no basis in Spanish law for this action. Anyway there are already people supporting the student “because in the end he is just a boy”.

The teacher, José Reyes Fernández, have told to Spanish newspaper what he told the Muslim student: “Firstly, you are not qualified to tell me what I can and I can not talk about in class. Secondly, I do not care about what you eat, or this other one eats at all. Thirdly, the religion you believe in, or is professed by any of the other children, is still less important to me. Fourthly, there are 30 students here, and you must adapt to the 29 remaining, not the other way round. And fifthly, if you do not agree with the teachings and knowledge taught in this center, you always have the choice to walk away to another school. I never said, as claimed by the family, that he had to leave to another country“. He adds: “I just put an example in a context that seemed appropriate, as if speaking of Toledo, I would have thought that their marzipan has a reputation and a student had warned me not to talk about it because he is diabetic“.

The Andalusian Community has supported the teacher, while the Muslim community has said this is “nonsense“. I would say this is something grave, as this student is trying to curtail his teacher’s academic freedom.

Lastly, the Andalusian Teachers’ Association representative, Gonzalo Guijarro, has blamedmulticulturalism” for this “absolute folly“. He adds: “multiculturalism (…) holds that all cultures have equal right to develop public space in a democratic country… This (action against the teacher) has no sense or reason. One thing is that everyone is entitled to follow the precepts of their religion in private and quite another to try to make them prevail in the public sphere. This goes against the most elementary principles of a democratic society“.

Spain: Socialists begin campaign for immigrant vote

The PSOE leadership today is introducing a campaign to encourage 1.7 million immigrants to register and vote at next local elections of May 22, through reciprocal agreements signed since the fall of 2008 with a dozen countries. 

The campaign will present the Secretary for International Policy and electoral committee spokesman of the PSOE, Elena Valenciano, and Social Movements and councilor of the opposition in the city of Madrid, Pedro Zerolo. Socialists understand that, in principle, the immigrant vote may be closer to them.

If we consider the last polls [*], with the opposition center-right Popular Party leading by 18,8 points against the socialists, despite the former “low-profiled” opposition, I bet they are going to ask the immigrants for voting them.

[*] With the volatile situation nowadays, we’ll see if they are actually true or not, when the elections come…

Spain: Zapatero offered Obama to host AFRICOM at Rota Naval Base

Zapatero offered to increase U.S. military presence in Spain titled El País on its cover on Wednesday December 8, 2010.

It added: “José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero was eager to turn the page on the bad relations with President George Bush and wanted to ingratiate with Obama. Just after the latter arrived at the Casa Blanca, Zapatero showed his willingness to increase U.S. military presence atRota Naval Base and offered it to be used by Africom, the new Pentagon command for Africa. “

Found here.

Well, I understand that is necessary for both countries to maintain a good relationship. But it’s quite hypocrite to see Zapatero going after Obama this way, after calling for other countries to order their troops back from Iraq and remaining seated while US flag was passing before him at Spanish National Day Parade on 2003. With his half machiavelic schemes, half childish, he doesn’t understand that Obama is not US Prez for ever and that another Republican can (and, with present circumstances will) be elected. So, then, will they be offering this still?

By the way, just to measure his great democratic spirit: he didn’t even ask the Parliament if they agreed on this. Isn’t that marvellous? 😡

Wikileaks: US is worried about Catalonia being “the main center of Mediterranean jihadism”

Nothing we did not already know, about jihadism in Catalonia, but it is interesting to see U.S. concerns on the subject.

The U.S. Embassy in Madrid believe that Catalonia is the hottest spot of radical Islam in Spain, a scenario that should be monitored and controlled as a bridge to the Mediterranean. The strong presence of Moroccan and Pakistani community in Barcelona and the effervescent activity of Islamists in towns such as Tarragona, Hospitalet, Badalona and Reus concern to U.S. intelligence services. IN fact, they consider this community as its first research objective. The secret documents of the State Department define Catalonia as the main center of Islamism in the Mediterranean.

So concerned they were, that they have opened some offices in Barcelona for “a multi-agency co-ordinating the fight against terrorism, crime and intelligence information to combat the growing threat jihadist and criminal activities in the region” in collaboration with our Spanish hosts. ”
