Blogmocracy in Action!
Guest post by: WE ARE GOVERNMENT!


While the economic situation in Europe has taken precedence over issues of integration or the lack thereof, don’t think that it has disappeared entirely. Here is a video report from a Dutch Jewish organization entitled “Yarmulke, threats, and hidden camera” which is rather self explanatory. The story is about the daily intimidation and threats that Jews face while walking through Amsterdam. For the report, a Rabbi and two students walk through the city, *gasp* while wearing a kippa. Obviously, many of the “youths” of Amsterdam consider the existence of Jews a provocation and react accordingly.

While subtitles in English are not available, I will provide a play by play.

2:00: The announcer points out that it doesn’t take long before they have their first “incident” of the day.

2:30: A group of “youths” laugh as they walk by and one gives a Hitler salute.

3:05: Here is where I will plagiarize Mark Steyn. “What’s that word again?” You guessed it: Youths.

3:20: Doedi explains that he always remains alert when walking through the city. I suppose I would too if half of the people under the age of 25 would gladly use me as kindling.

3:30: A Moroccan honks his horn and yells out “Go back to your own country”, which is obviously ironic coming from a Moroccan in the Netherlands. Considering the high turnout for Geert Wilder’s party, it seems many Dutch people would ask him to follow his own advice first. I’m sure they would even provide bus fare.

3:50: One Jewish student tells of experiences he has had on a bus, including the now famous “Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the gas” slur made famous during the war with Gaza in 2009. Of course this is a message of peace, love and understanding. It is a little known fact that in John Lennon’s ode to utopian world peace, Imagine, this was in a verse that never made the final cut. Because, you know, it’s a message of peace and shows a longing to integrate.

And just a side note; the Youths we are talking about here were in their forties. Ah, the youthful exuberance of a 45 year old Jew hater!

4:20: This is a new one to me. One youth calls out “Kankerjood” as they walk past. The best translation for this I can come up with is “Cancer Jew.” At least they are creative.

4:45: Another incident with more of the youths of the city. The youths ask him if he is going to call the police. He asks why, and then turns and walks away. Then it gets interesting.

5:20: Is this a peace message? You be the judge. “Jood”, by the way, means Jew.

6:00: Here we can start to see the psychological strain of living in such conditions. The word used here is “intimidating.” That seems to be a bit of an understatement. I would have said “psychoterror resulting from an aggressive, imperialistic, nihilistic culture that is unable to live at peace with anyone due to a backwards mindset that should have been discarded before Columbus’ crew every brought tobacco and syphillis back to the old country.” But that’s just me. Maybe my grasp of Dutch doesn’t allow me to get nuance?

6:10: What was that word again? Jongen = boys = youths.

6:40: Here is a list of the registered complaints in the Netherlands. In the last 6 months. Keep in mind that these are only the ones that made it to the police. And, there are only 30,000 Jews in the Netherlands, 9,000 of which belong to a Jewish organization. Of these, my guess is that fewer than 1,000 would be considered Orthodox and “look” Jewish. These seems to be a widespread phenomena. I guess everyone wants to get in on the craze. Why should the youths of Amsterdam have all the fun when there is nothing to do in Wassernar and Middleburg on a Friday night?

7:30: Here is where the Rabbi gives a relatively calm reaction to the events. He says both that this behaviour is certainly not normal, and that they shouldn’t accept it. He’s half right. It is certainly unacceptable that Jewish Dutch citizens have to live like 3rd class citizens in their own country, fearful of being spotted. On the other hand, it is definitely the new normal. As you can see from the video, this has gone from an infrequent occurrence to something that happens every time a “visible” Jew is seen on the streets of Amsterdam.

If this video surprises you at all, please read and then reread Mark Steyn’s “America Alone.” And visit the Netherlands while you still can. It really was quite nice while it lasted.

Update: Reading through the comments section is enlightening. Apparently some people consider it a provocation to wear an Israeli shirt; in other words, don’t look Jewish or you are to blame for the unwanted attention. This is where I would note the popularity of the clothing manufacturer Ken Velo, which is particularly loved by the “youth” of Europe. Ken Velo is an Israeli company; it is not the owner’s name but means “Yes and No” in Hebrew.

    Often the best way to respond to intimidation is with violence. Splatter the blood of the loudest one all over his friends, and they will usually decide that they want to go play elsewhere. Somehow I just know that the police would look at such a thing as unbnecessary “provocation” against innocent “youths”. That is part of the problem.


  2. 2 | June 24, 2010 7:11 pm

    @ Iron Fist:

    The problem now is demographics. They reason they use the phrase “youths” is because those are the young people of Europe. Even the police stay out of certain areas because their three cars get overwhelmed by 200 people. This would have been a way of dealing with it 10 years ago, but the numbers just aren’t on our side anymore.


  3. 3 | June 24, 2010 7:14 pm

    @ We Are Government:

    The other option is to flee. I wouldn’t move to Europe for $5 million a year if you required me to live there five years to get it. All the signs world-wide are pointing to a violent re-arrangement of the current status. Europe was a focal point of such things at the beginning of the last century. It sounds to me like it is building up to something like that again. Only this time there won’t be a great United States to come in and save them.

    Agree 100%. Europe is slipping slowly into chaos. Many countries like France and Greece are ready to explode at any minute. They argued for years that America should let Europe run the world; I don’t think they’re going to like the world they live in.


  7. 7 | June 24, 2010 7:23 pm

    @ Poteen:

    Largely, Europeans are willing to trade freedom for security. Obviously, they will get neither in the long run under the current system. Many of the people who put these policies into place are retired or will be soon, and most of them don’t really seem to care. They are going to leave their countries were far less freedom than when the US gave it to them.

    Firms paid to shut down wind farms when the wind is blowing

    Energy firms will receive thousands of pounds a day per wind farm to turn off their turbines because the National Grid cannot use the power they are producing.

    Critics of wind farms have seized on the revelation as evidence of the unsuitability of turbines to meet the UK’s energy needs in the future. They claim that the ‘intermittent’ nature of wind makes such farms unreliable providers of electricity.

    The National Grid fears that on breezy summer nights, wind farms could actually cause a surge in the electricity supply which is not met by demand from businesses and households.

    @ FurryOldGuyJeans:

    The problem is that it is a very slow rot. Most people don’t notice it because it comes in dribs and drabs. When you explain to Europeans that you can just start a business in the US if you want, most of them don’t believe you. America’s slide has been slower, but we are headed down the same path. Take a look at post Thatcher Britain to see how quickly it can happen.

    @ m:

    That is always my suggestion. Europeans don’t think that way. There have been cases of 2 or 3 youths raping a woman in the presence of 15 non-youths who just watch it happen or get out of the way. The nanny state has destroyed their ability to defend themselves. That’s why they hate it when a country like Israel does.

But this is a state that is a ways removed from the border.” Wow! There’s stupid -- and then there’s Peggy West.

    In an interview afterwards, West tried to claim that she “misspoke”. To that I say, watch the video and if you believe West “misspoke”, be sure to duck when you fall off the turnip truck.

    @ spinmore:

    The key word in Germany is “deescalation.” Whenever there is a riot, police are supposed to back down to avoid violence. This is the same with some of the famous “occupied” buildings in Hamburg. The state just let them have them to avoid a confrontation 30 years ago. Now they flood the streets several times a year to destroy everything around them. On my former street, 3 cars were burned by leftists this week.

    @ m:

    Carter part deux. It will be harder to argue that we should follow Europe in the next 10 years. What we need now is a new Reagan to put us back on course. I’m hoping the love with Obamaism will turn out to be a sorely regretted (but never forgotten) bad one night stand.

    I always thought the EU would come to a grinding cash-strapped halt in the future. (I was actually guessing between 2015-2020.) The worst that could come out of this is a defacto Islamofascist government. With Nukes. The moment the money stops though, a lot of these people will have no choice but to leave since they have no ability to get a job. It would be a twofer: reform the welfare state and get rid of a lot of people who want to destroy the country.

    Since the number one name for newborn babies in Amsterdam is now “Mo”, it’s looking like the future of the Netherlands is firmly in the “Death to the Jews” camp. The irony is that Amsterdam was once considered “Mokum”, a yiddish corruption of “HaMakom” meaning a place in Hebrew. It was so called because it was once a place where Jews were allowed freedoms not offered in other countries.

    This report has led to Dutch police going undercover as Jews to nab offenders. The program will be based on a similar one used to protect gays from the army of Mohammeds.

    Hey! FOGJ! One of the people I do business with (a guy in Alabama) sent me what looks like a nummy recipe for Key Lime Pie! I can’t wait to try it! He says he makes it every week. The last couple of times I made Key Lime Pie I only did it because I found Key Limes at QFC and I thought, what the heck. I found that (a) it is a pain in the ass to try to squeeze juice out of Key limes and (b) it takes a lot of Key limes to get a little bit of juice! He uses bottled Key Lime juice… sounds easier than my version…

    hey hey hey hey
    we need to all poo together and buy our own greek island

    Greece puts its islands up for sale to save economy

    The sale of an island – or convincing a member of the international executive jet-set to take on a long-term lease – would help to boost its coffers. The Private Islands website lists 1,235-acre Nafsika, in the Ionian sea, on the market for €15m. But others are up for grabs for less than €2m – less than a town house in Mayfair or Chelsea. Some of the country’s numerous islands are tiny rocky islets which could barely fit a single sunbed.

    Only 227 Greek islands are populated and the decision to press ahead with potential sales has also been driven by the inability of the state to find funds to develop basic utility infrastructure, or police most of its islands. The hope is that the sale or long-term lease of some islands will attract investment that will generate jobs and taxable income.

    I know if we all got together we could swing it

    Is BP burning sea turtles alive?

    VENICE, La. -- A boat captain working to rescue sea turtles in the Gulf of Mexico says he has seen BP ships burning sea turtles and other wildlife alive.

    Captain Mike Ellis said in an interview posted on You Tube that the boats are conducting controlled burns to get rid of the oil.

    “They drag a boom between two shrimp boats and whatever gets caught between the two boats, they circle it up and catch it on fire. Once the turtles are in there, they can’t get out,” Ellis said.

    Other reports corroborate Captain Ellis’ claims. A report in the Los Angeles Times describes “burn fields” of 500 square miles in which 16 controlled burns will take place in one day.
    “When the weather is calm and the sea is placid, ships trailing fireproof booms corral the black oil, the coated seaweed and whatever may be caught in it, and torch it into hundred-foot flames, sending plumes of smoke skyward in ebony mushrooms,” the article says.

    Ellis said most of the turtles he has seen are Kemps Ridley turtles, a critically endangered species. Harming or killing one would bring stiff civil and criminal penalties and fines of up to $50,000 against BP.

    Pretendustrial Terrorism: Green Jobs Critic Receives Parcel From “Green” Company: Dismantled, But Otherwise Operational, Bomb
    —Ace

    errr…what? a company did this? yeah.

    Spain’s Dr. Gabriel Calzada — the author of a damning study concluding that Spain’s “green jobs” energy program has been a catastrophic economic failure — was mailed a dismantled bomb on Tuesday by solar energy company Thermotechnic.

    Says Calzada:

    Before opening it, I called [Thermotechnic] to know what was inside … they answered, it was their answer to my energy pieces.

    Dr. Calzada contacted a terrorism expert to handle the package. The expert first performed a scan of the package, then opened it in front of a journalist, Dr. Calzada, and a private security expert.

    The terrorism consultant said he had seen this before:

    This time you receive unconnected pieces. Next time it can explode in your hands.

    Dr. Calzada added:

    [The terrorism expert] told me that this was a warning.

    The bomb threat is just the latest intimidation Dr. Calzada has faced since releasing his report and following up with articles in Expansion (a Spanish paper similar to the Financial Times). A minister from Spain’s Socialist government called the rector of King Juan Carlos University — Dr. Calzada’s employer — seeking Calzada’s ouster. Calzada was not fired, but he was stripped of half of his classes at the university. The school then dropped its accreditation of a summer university program with which Calzada’s think tank — Instituto Juan de Mariana — was associated.

    Additionally, the head of Spain’s renewable energy association and the head of its communist trade union wrote opinion pieces in top Spanish newspapers accusing Calzada of being “unpatriotic” — they did not charge him with being incorrect, but of undermining Spain by daring to write the report.

    Their reasoning? If the skepticism that Calzada’s revelations prompted were to prevail in the U.S., Spanish industry would face collapse should U.S. subsidies and mandates dry up.

    As I have previously reported at PJM (here and here), Spain’s “green jobs” program was repeatedly referenced by President Obama as a model for what he would like to implement in the United States. Following the release of Calzada’s report, Spain’s Socialist government has since acknowledged the debacle — both privately and publicly. This month, Spain’s government instituted massive reductions in subsidies to “renewable” energy sources.

    I have to question this. Sea turtles can swim underwater. Oil floats on top of the water. Not all the water under the oil-slicked water is saturated with oil.

    That means that a sea turtle on the surface—that is not going to breathe underwater—can still go underwater and swim away from the area being burned. I’d want a little more proof that sea turtles are being “burned alive.”

    Also—and I hate to say it—if there is a choice between clearing up the Gulf by burning a thousand sea turtles alive, horrible as that is, and thereby preserving the Gulf environment for whatever turtles are left, or leaving the whole environment to go to hell for the sake of not burning the turtles, and thereby killing all of them and letting the entire environment go to pot, the choice is clear; some of the turtles will die, and die horribly, that the others may live.

    Barry should do his best Chavez imitation and just nationalize BP and get it over with. That way the feds can burn all the turtles they want and no one can sue.
