How Barcelona Became a Victim of the Barcelona Process


This brief Fjordman essay focusing on Islamic terrorism in Spain then expanding his understanding to all the European Union (EU) is something concerned Americans should understand the implications that are applicable to the USA thanks to eight years of Obama/Dem immigration policies.

How Barcelona Became a Victim of the Barcelona Process

October 12, 2017 4:00 am

o   The Barcelona Process, promoted by the EU, has helped to facilitate a greater presence of Islam and Muslim immigrants in Western Europe -- thereby also increasing the Islamic terror threat there. That result was perfectly foreseeable.

o   When the number of people who believe in Islamic Jihad doctrines rises, the likelihood of experiencing jihadist attacks increases as well.

o   It is unlikely, though, that European political leaders will point to this connection. Doing so would be an indirect admission that Europe's leaders have actively increased the Islamic terror threat against European citizens. This is the brutal truth they do not want exposed.

The murders on the pedestrian street of La Rambla in Barcelona on August 17, 2017 were not the first Islamic terrorist attack in Spain. On March 11, 2004, 192 people were killed, and around two thousand injured, in the Madrid train bombings.

In hindsight, that attack marked a new phase in the modern Islamic Jihad against Europe. After the Madrid bombings, London was hit with deadly bombings on July 7, 2005. In recent years, the frequency of jihadist attacks on European soil has increased dramatically.

It is probably not a coincidence that Spain was an early target of Islamic terror. The Iberian Peninsula, present-day Portugal and Spain, was for centuries under Islamic rule. Militant Muslims have repeatedly made it clear that for them, reconquering Spain is a priority.

Ironically, some people in Barcelona seem to view tourists who pay for short-term visits as a greater threat than Muslim immigrants who come to stay permanently. One can hear similar reactions among some radical left-wing activists, for instance, in Greece.

Mass tourism can potentially cause problems such as overcrowding and local pollution. Nevertheless, it is noteworthy that only a few days before the terror attack in Barcelona, some locals were complaining about an invasion of tourists. One radical left-wing group, Arran, published footage of tourist bikes in the city having their tires punctured in acts of deliberate sabotage. Of course, the problem might be even greater if there were too few tourists.

Meanwhile, a real invasion of Spain and Europe is taking place. For years, huge numbers of illegal immigrants from the Islamic world and Africa have been entering, especially through Greece or Italy. Spain, too, has seen a spike in the number of illegal immigrants. The Spanish-controlled enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla in North Africa are under increasing pressure as points of departure for migrants.

The Madrid bombings in 2004 were immediately followed by the election in Spain of the Socialist politician José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. His policy of appeasement of Islam and the Islamic world was, sadly, not the first. Western Europe's appeasement of Islam stretches back at least to the 1970s.

With the 1973 oil embargo, Arab countries in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) used oil as a weapon and tool for blackmail. European countries started giving concessions to Arabs to ensure their oil supply and, they doubtless hoped, avoid terrorism. These concessions were not just limited to economic affairs. They also included opening Western Europe up to Islamic culture and Muslim immigration. The author Bat Ye'or has written extensively on this subject.

As part of the Euro-Arab Dialogue, a Euro-Mediterranean Partnership between the EU and the Arabic-Islamic world was launched in 1995 with the so-called Barcelona Process. Its purpose was to strengthen the ties between Europe and the Arab world in the fields of trade, economy, environment, energy, health, migration, education, social affairs and cultural cooperation.

This Process has been in force for decades. Despite it, the increasingly stronger ties between the EU and Arab Muslim countries rarely receive critical scrutiny from the European mass media. There is even a Union for the Mediterranean, which most Europeans have never heard of.

As the official website of the European External Action Service (EEAS), the diplomatic service of the European Union (EU), stated in October 2017:

"The Union for the Mediterranean promotes economic integration across 15 neighbours to the EU's south in North Africa, the Middle East and the Balkans region. Formerly known as the Barcelona Process, cooperation was re-launched in 2008 as the Union for the Mediterranean.... Projects address areas such as economy, environment, energy, health, migration, education and social affairs. Along with the 28 EU member states, 15 Southern Mediterranean countries are members of the UfM: Albania, Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Mauritania, Monaco, Montenegro, Morocco, Palestine, Syria (suspended), Tunisia and Turkey. Libya is an observer."

The Islamic Republic of Mauritania in western Africa, a full member of the Union for the Mediterranean, has the same formal status there as Denmark, Sweden, Germany, France, Italy and Poland. Although Mauritania was the last country officially to ban slavery, it is still widely practiced there to this day. Yet the country regularly cooperates with the EU on matters of importance to the future of the EU.

The Barcelona Process, promoted by the EU, has helped to facilitate a greater presence of Islam and Muslim immigrants in Western Europe -- thereby also increasing the Islamic terror threat there. That result was perfectly foreseeable. When the number of people who believe in Islamic Jihad doctrines rises, the likelihood of experiencing Jihadist attacks increases as well.

It is unlikely, though, that European political leaders will point to this connection. Doing so would be an indirect admission that Europe's leaders have actively increased the Islamic terror threat against European citizens. This is the brutal truth they do not want exposed.

“Obama Was A Criminal” - Ben Shapiro Proves This Fact In 13 Minutes


The G+ person going by the name “THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH !!!” posts often to my G+ Community Anti-islamic Brotherhood. Unfortunately TAT!!! Goes beyond posting info exposing Islam. Those posts not dealing with Islam on that community I often delete; nonetheless, TAT!!!’s posts are often spot on even when they don’t deal with Islam. TAT!!! Found a video of Ben Shapiro giving facts showing the nefarious Barack Hussein Obama is a crook. That video was posted by the Youtube channel To Tell The Truth. The similarities between the G+ The Absolute Truth !!! and the Youtube channel To Tell The Truth might be a coincidence or the same person, frankly I don’t know.

At any rate the legacy of Obama criminality will probably affect America for some time even past the Trump Administration. The reason being is the Leftist elites are too powerfully entrenched in our government protecting Leftist crooks like Obama and Hillary Clinton and their comrade acolytes.

So, go get’em Ben Shapiro! Obama is evil and even out of Office is perpetuating evil against America & Israel!

Resisting Islamic Cultural Intrusion

Battle of Lepanto 1571

In an email alert today (10/13/17), Bill Warner – prior to introducing a new expose Islam video (What I Admire about Islam) – writes about how the Polish collective stood against EU Multiculturalism with a massive rosary prayer pertaining resisting more Muslim migrants by highlighting the Battle of Lepanto in 1571. Lepanto is one of those historic battles against Ottoman Turkish invasions that helped preserve Western culture from the brutality of Islamic conquest.

The National Review on October 7 – the anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto – gives a brief history lesson on how brutal Muslim imperialists made numerous attempts to subjugate the last bastion of Christianity that looks at momentous Islamic setbacks such as Charles Martel repulsing a then considered superior Muslim force at the Battle of Tours/Poitiers in 732 AD, then some Muslim vicious victories, another spectacular Christian victory at the Battle of Vienna in 1683 under the leadership of Polish King Jan (John) III Sobieski and then adding more detail to the battle of Lepanto in 1571.

Between victories at Vienna and Lepanto, Muslim military began to wane and recede back Muslim entrenched populations already brutally converted to Islam.

I admire Polish resistance in this present time to defy European Union Multiculturalism and prevent further Muslim twisting of Western/Christian culture.

Below is the Bill Warner intro on Polish activism that has a link to a Gateway Pundit report on Polish resistance to Leftist Multiculturalism and Islamic cultural infusion.

Excerpt Political Islam Alert

There comes a time in life when a person must stand for something or stand for nothing.  The Polish people know what Islamic migration would do to their country, and this acknowledgement was the driver for their standing up and praying en mass in commemoration of the Battle of Lepanto. In this naval battle of 1571, the outnumbered Europeans fought and won against the Muslim Ottoman Turks. Their show of spirit and deep devotion to their religious beliefs and the ideals of Western Civilization is to be commended. I hope they continue to stay strong in their stance.

If only Americans knew their own country’s history and would commemorate defeating the Muslim Barbary States pirates who took the jizya from ships sailing the Mediterranean in the early 19th century, I would be a happy man.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS Gather To Pray Rosary Along Poland’s Borders For Defense Against Secularism, Islam




By Damien Cowley
October 9, 2017

Hundreds of thousands of Poles took part in a massive prayer vigil Saturday, forming a human chain which spanned the length of the nation’s 2,200-mile border – through forested wilderness and snowy mountain crossings, along river banks and coastal beaches. Fishing trawlers and sailing boats joined the event on open water whilst airport chapels were said to be overflowing.

The ‘Różaniec do grana’’, or ‘’Rosary to the Borders’’ event was deliberately planned to coincide with the liturgical feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary (October 7th), which commemorates the landmark 1571 Battle of Lepanto in which outnumbered European forces under Pope Pius V won a decisive naval battle against the Ottoman Turks. The victory, credited with saving Europe from Islamic expansion, was attributed to the praying of the rosary by beleaguered Christian forces.

Impressive crowds gathered for Mass Saturday morning, followed by processions to 4,000 border locations, each selected to be several hundred yards from the next so as to encircle the entire Polish territory in a ‘’chain of prayer.’’

In Catholic tradition, the rosary has long since been considered a spiritual weapon against evil, and a means of conversion to Christ by way of his mother, Mary.

Social media accounts were soon flooded with images of the unusual event, which organizers hope will have mobilized at least one million of Poland’s predominantly Catholic population of 38 million.

Archbishop of Krakow, Marek Jedraszewski asked participants to pray “for other European nations to make them understand the necessity of returning to their Christian roots in order that Europe remains Europe.”

Polish Prime Minister, Beata Szydło, a devout Catholic and mother of a recently ordained priest, tweeted an image of her own rosary beads and a greeting in support of those taking part.


In certain cases, Polish citizens were joined in prayer by participants across the border; Poland has land borders with Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Ukraine, Belarus and Russia (Kaliningrad).

The popularity of the event reflects the level of Christian faith still found in Poland along with a general sense of foreboding over what many Poles see as an attack on their values coming from a European Union accelerating into chaos.

“Poland is in danger. We need to shield our families, our homes, our country from all kinds of threats, including the de-Christianization of our society, which the EU’s liberals want to impose on us,” one participant explained to the AFP, adding that Islam was again becoming a threat as in centuries past.

Organized by a group of lay Catholics, Solo Dios Basta (God Alone Is Enough), the project was the idea of young documentary film-maker, Maciej Bodasiński, and enjoyed the support of numerous actors, sports stars and media personalities.

Political Islam About Page

What is Islam?

Islam is a cultural, religious [sic] and political system. Only the political system is of interest to kafirs (non-Muslims) since it determines how we are defined and treated. The Islamic political system is contained in the Koran, the Hadith (the traditions of Mohammed) and his biography, the Sira.

Our Mission

Political Islam has subjugated other civilizations for 1400 years. Our mission is to educate the world about political Islam, its founder Mohammed, his political doctrine and his god, Allah.

The Five Principles

Islam’s Trilogy of three sacred texts is the Koran and two books about the life of Mohammed. When the Trilogy is sorted, categorized, arranged, rewritten and analyzed, it becomes apparent that five principles are the foundation of Islam.

All of Islam is based upon the Trilogy—Koran, Sira (Mohammed’s biography) and Hadith (his Traditions).

Most of the Islamic doctrine is political, not religious. Islam is a political ideology.

Islam divides the world into Muslims and unbelievers, kafirs.

Political Islam always has two different ways to treat kafirs—dualistic ethics. Kafirs can be  READ THE REST

HELL HATH NO FURY

Jihadwatchdog1 is a fellow “owner” of the G+ community Movement of Anti Pisslam! (There are several listed owners and I have no idea how I joined that list) JWDog1 found a Youtube video of an Italian gal a bit upset about Italy taking in volumes of illegal Muslim immigrants.

The video is subtitled in English and lasts 2-minutes and 46-seconds. What I enjoyed most though was JWDog1’s description of Giorgia Meloni venting anger over the immigration situation surging into Italian culture.


Here’s Wikipedia’s scoop on Giorgia Meloni:

Giorgia Meloni (born 15 January 1977) is an Italian politician and journalist, president of Brothers of Italy.

Giorgia Meloni was Minister of Youth in the IV Berlusconi government and president of Young Italy, the youth section of The People of Freedom.

She is co-founder of the party Brothers of Italy ("Fratelli d'Italia") with Guido Crosetto and Ignazio La Russa, and on
March 8, 2014, she was elected president of the party. She has been a member of the Chamber of Deputies of Italy since 2006.[1]


Biography


Meloni was born in Rome, to a father from Sardinia and a mother from Sicily.[2]

Being active into politics since her teenage years, she earned a diploma from the former Amerigo Vespucci Institute in 1996.[3]

In 1992, when she was 15, she started her political commitment in "Fronte della Gioventù", the youth 


In 2006, she became the youngest ever deputy vice president of the Italian Chamber of Deputies and she started to work as journalist.[4]

In 2009, her party merged with Forza Italia into The People of Freedom and she took over the presidency of the united party's youth section, called Young Italy.[5]

In 2008, she was appointed as Minister of Youth Policy in


In December 2012, both MPs left the party to become founding member of a new political movement named "Fratelli d'Italia" (Brothers of Italy), a name borrowed from the words of the Italian National Anthem. At the Italian general election, 2013, her party gets 2.0% and 9 seats.

In March 2014 she won the primary election of her party and became President.

She was candidate for mayor of Rome in 2016, but she lost. She and her party were for "No" to the constitutional Italian referendum, 2016. (Giorgia Meloni; Wikipedia; page was last edited on 24 July 2017 20:24)

HELL HATH NO FURY

Movement of Anti-Pisslam!

HELL HATH NO FURY like an Italian woman sick to death of seeing her country ripped apart by the never-ending Muslim migrant invasion.

Giorgia Meloni, leader of the anti-immigration party, Fratelli d’Italia, said that boats filled with Muslim illegals departing from Libya “should be stopped before they leave,” while boats with human traffickers on board “should be sunk.” She rails against the Left, saying their agenda is ethnic replacement of Italians with third world Muslim freeloaders.

NY Times Giorgia Meloni, the head of the centre-Right Forza Italia party, said that boatloads of Muslim migrant departing from Libya “should be stopped before they leave,” while boats with smugglers on board “should be sunk.” “OUR identity should be defended first and foremost!” [Blog Editor: Meloni has departed from Forza Italia and now leads Brothers of Italy, Party President since 2014)

Ms. Meloni, a member of Parliament, wasted no time bringing up her party’s opposition to the government’s proposal to extend citizenship to children born in Italy. “We believe Italian citizenship cannot be a concession or automatic,” she said to applause.

She had no problem with attacking the government’s welcoming approach to immigrants. “It devastates the culture, devastates tourism, devastates security, devastates everything,” she said. “Nothing good comes of it.

Italy has registered more than 70,000 mainly economic migrants and fake asylum seekers this year, 27% more than it did by this time in 2016, when a record 181,000 migrants arrived.

Actual fights have broken out in Parliament over the center-left government’s proposal to extend citizenship to the children of Muslim migrants born on Italian soil. All over, parties and politicians are shifting to a tougher stance on immigration.

One of its highest-profile politicians, Rome’s embattled mayor, Virginia Raggi, called for a moratorium on new immigrants. Champions of a more welcoming approach to immigrants have not fared well. - Via NBI

Contrary to FBI Hooey, Steven Paddock Fits the Profile of a Convert


Noted Counterjihad activist Pamela Geller is not dismissing the Muslim convert motive behind Stephen Paddock’s mass murder terrorism. Geller is noted and yet also controversial. The American Left enjoys lying about Counterjihadists by calling them racists rather than people that expose the dark side of Islam. Geller on the other hand tips the Leftist hate scale off the meter.

In full disclosure, I find Geller a bit brusque. Nonetheless, she is passionate in pushing back the Leftist lies about Islamic acceptance as well as pushing back on the Left’s labelling Geller as a racist. The irony there is that Geller has a Jewish ancestry.

Here is Pamela Geller’s reasoning behind Paddock being an Islamic terrorist complete with photos of other elderly converts to Islam to prove her point to not completely dismiss the possibility.

Contrary to FBI Hooey, Steven Paddock Fits the Profile of a Convert

October 9, 2017

The idea floated by “intel” agencies that Steven Paddock didn’t fit the profile of a Muslim convert is absurd on its face, and further proof that the keystone clowns and their “profilers” at the FBI haven’t a clue. How can they profile what they refuse to acknowledge, learn about or recognize?

The fact is the FBI has nothing. Over a week after the monstrous slaughter, they have nothing and yet they have dismissed ISIS claims out of hand, despite the fact ISIS does not take credit for attacks that are not theirs. Not only did they take credit, they did something they never did before – they doubled and tripled down. The Islamic State (IS) featured an infographic on the Las Vegas attack in the 100th issue of its al-Naba weekly newspaper, and indicated that the shooter, “Abu Abdul Barr al-Amriki,” had converted to Islam six months ago.

Jihad is the only motive that makes any sense. And the fact that the FBI has nothing else points to that. That Steven Paddock left no digital trail might very well be deliberate – to show how incompetent our law enforcement agencies are. ISIS took credit for the downing of the Russian jetliner in the Sinai. Everyone in law enforcement dismissed that too. Until ISIS provided proof a couple of weeks later, that is. I suspect we may see the same thing happen here. The Vegas attack mirrors the sophisticated planning and secrecy consistent with more complex ISIS plots like Sinai explosion of Russian airliner.

We have been told that because Paddock was white and 64, it is unlikely that he would be a convert to Islam. Why? Islam is ideological – it’s not a race or an age. It’s a belief system. It’s also being said that if Paddock was a convert, Homeland Security is going to have to change their whole approach to jihad terror in the Homeland. We can only hope. Because this war has nothing to do with age, race or gender – it’s religious. And profiling is required. On the top of my watch list would be converts. Who would be attracted to an ideology that is the cause of hatred, misogyny, subjugation and slaughter?
