RARE GOOD NEWS FROM THE MIDDLE EAST

By Pete Moore On June 24th, 2019

Arabs are increasingly saying they are no longer religious, according to the largest and most in-depth survey undertaken of the Middle East and North Africa.

Let’s be honest, we’re all happy about that, eh?

  1. Good news on two fronts here, the fact that the Arab world is secularising and that Pete Moore is citing a BBC survey in good faith.

  2. What is worrying is how ‘religion’ is prospering in the US and the post-Christian world that we inhabit:

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/06/21/hail-satan-prayer-at-alaska-government-meeting-sparks-outrage/

    A walkout occurred at an Alaska government meeting Tuesday after an official ended a prayer by uttering the words “Hail Satan,” local media reports.

    The official, Iris Fontana — who also happens to be a member of the Satanic Temple — delivered an invocation ahead of the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting Tuesday, sealing the prayer with “Hail Satan.”

    As one of the Daily Stormer’s contributors wrote…….

    This whole tranny children thing convinced me that the Devil is real

    It looks that way

    I agree with you there Paul. and by the way, Pete Moore will agree with the BBC if they agree with his agenda.

  5. And Pete calls himself a traditionalist…

  6. As for arabs who are in Europe……..

    France’s flight from Catholicism is so evident that a new book, L’archipel français: Naissance d’une nation multiple et divisée, by the pollster Jerôme Fourquet, has described the cultural failing of the French society as a “post-Christian era”: French society’s displacement from its Catholic matrix has become almost total. The country, Fourquet states, is now implementing its own de-Christianization. And there is only one strong substitute at the horizon. There are today already, according to a new academic study, as many Muslims as Catholics among 18-29 year-olds in France; and Muslims represent 13% of the population of France’s large cities, more than double the national average.

    Sometimes Muslim feelings of community solidarity appear to have been taking advantage of this fragmentation by creating their own “ghettos of sharia”. A report from Institut Montaigne, “The Islamist Factory”, has detailed the radicalization of the French Muslim society. Instead of integration, assimilation and Europeanization, Muslim extremists in France are pursuing multiculturalism, separation and partition. The enclaves of immigrants at the edges of French cities, posits Gilles Kepel in his book, La Fracture, foment “a rupture in values with French society, and a will to subvert it”. “People do not want to live together”, said France’s former Interior Minister, Gérard Collomb, in comments reported by Valeurs Actuelles.

    So who brought these muslims into France? The fact that the Gatestone Institute does not mention the (((perpetrators))) – yes, it’s the jewsual suspects – and calls France’s death spiral “suicide” when it was obviously destroyed from within by an evil sect, shows that the (((Gatestone Institute))) like all ‘think-tanks’ is a diversionary outlet.

    So you’re happy about Arabs becoming less religious but not Christians?

  8. Now if we could just convince the amuricans

  9. The loosening of religious extremism anywhere is to be welcomed.

  10. A couple of points of order.

    Becoming less religious doesn’t necessarily mean less religious extremism. In fact, one might precipitate the other.

    The article seems to suggest certain cultural attitudes remain – confirming the point made by liberal muslims that they are indeed cultural and not religious.

  11. Put it to the test…. show them a picture of Moe and then burn it…..

  12. Probably won’t work Patrick. As Reg says the decrease of religious people doesn’t mean a decrease in religious extremism. Most likely, similar to the west, the people who are becoming less religious are the waiverers, not the most devout.

  13. Becoming less religious doesn’t necessarily mean less religious extremism. In fact, one might precipitate the other.

    That’s certainly possible. We see it at home. As we all become stratospherically rich, thanks to capitalism and markets, socialists become more entrenched in their extreme, backward ways.

  14. As we all become stratospherically rich, thanks to capitalism and markets…….

    Pete – where is this place? I don’t see the peoples of our homelands getting rich, but they are being ‘enriched’

    https://sputniknews.com/europe/201906251076044837-british-woman-raped-by-gang-of-north-african-men-in-milan/

    A British woman was found in a “disordered” state in a park along Via Conca del Naviglio in Milan at 6 a.m. (4 a.m. GMT) on 23 June by a passerby who called the police, Milan’s Corriere reported.

    The 44-year-old woman, who has not been identified for legal reasons, stated that she was robbed and raped by a gang of North African men in a park in Milan, according to the Milan newspaper Corriere citing police.

    DS – Imagine visiting Milan to take a break from being raped by Pakis, only to end up getting raped by Arabs instead. That’s some seriously bad luck right there.

  15. I might imagine that the usual frauds would be angry at the publication for reporting the ethnicity of the perps.

  16. no the most devout tend to get worse as more and more people become “modernized”

  17. As we all become stratospherically rich, thanks to capitalism and markets…….

    Further to Pete’s assertion which I must contest:

    Once upon a time, some of the most beautiful cities in the entire world were on the west coast, but now those same cities are degenerating into drug-infested cesspools of filth and garbage right in front of our eyes. San Francisco is known as the epicenter for our tech industry, and Los Angeles produces more entertainment than anyone else in the world, and yet both cities are making headlines all over the world for other reasons these days. Right now, nearly a quarter of the nation’s homeless population lives in the state of California, and more are arriving with each passing day. When you walk the streets of San Francisco or Los Angeles, you can’t help but notice the open air drug markets, the giant mountains of trash, and the discarded needles and piles of human feces that are seemingly everywhere. If this is what things look like when the U.S. economy is still relatively stable, how bad are things going to get when the economy tanks?

    In San Francisco, the homeless population has grown by 17 percent since 2017, and when a UN official recently walked the streets she was absolutely horrified by what she witnessed…

    https://www.businessinsider.com/un-expert-san-francisco-homeless-cruelty-2018-11?r=US&IR=T

    When Leilani Farha paid a visit to San Francisco in January, she knew the grim reputation of the city’s homeless encampments. In her four years as the United Nations Special Rapporteur for Adequate Housing, Farha has visited the slums of Mumbai, Delhi, Mexico City, Jarkarta, and Manila. The crisis in San Francisco, she said, is comparable to these conditions.

    I hear on the BBC that Congress has approved $4 billion of emergency funding for the refugee crisis on the US souther border. This money is to house feed and clothe those who arrive from the 3rd-world for re-location in the US. It’s pretty much over for the US as we know it and the best that Russia, China and Iran can do is to avoid any confrontation until the US becomes Mexico. Whilst Mexico is super-corrupt and violent, it is no threat to the rest of the world because it is incapable of being a threat to the rest of the world: that’s what the US will be.

  18. Angry? Catch yourself on, there’s only a selective ethnicity of criminals and rapists ever highlighted on ATW.

    Maybe wary of Aberdonian arseholery in attempting to yet again divert another thread to his cause célèbre and you snidely giving him cover on it, but not angry.

  19. Phantom,
    //I might imagine that the usual frauds would be angry at the publication for reporting the ethnicity of the perps//

    Who gets angry?

  20. Thread hijacked by race-obsessed, conspiracy loon alert!

    Another point on Arabs becoming less religious. Weren’t the Baathists secular? They were a lovely bunch.

  21. Dave

    In many US media, a practice has evolved where the ethnicity of violent criminals is no longer mentioned, out of concern that it was somehow unfair.

    This gives rise to accounts like ” the attacker was a male about 6 feet tall and was wearing a white shirt ”

    This was done under pressure from rights groups or whatever.

  22. It’s harder to do this now with the rise of so many cameras in buildings etc

    Its hard for news media not to show camera footage if it exists, and that footage does show more than the attire of the bad guy

  23. Phantom

    If the ethnicity is relevant, such as the attacker is on the run, then I see no problem in mentioning it.

  24. yes but ethnicity is still not mentioned phantom even with footage it’s a sad joke

  25. Agreed.

    But ” bias ” in reporting on perps is a politically correct issue not just in media circles, but also in some policing circles. It’s somehow racist to describe who the suspect is, according to some of the worst of us.

  26. Dave, Phantom won’t answer your question so I’ll give it a go. What he’s stating is that those of us here who negatively comment on selective highlighting of crime on ATW are ‘frauds’ or something although he won’t have the balls to directly identify his targets or explain what they’re fraudulent of or whatever.

    Meanwhile in Germany one of those who identifies with selective highlighting of crimes commits the ultimate crime, echoing the murder of Jo Cox, ATW is silent, Aberdeen is overjoyed and Brooklyn is indifferent:

  27. Paul

    I wasn’t commenting there about anyone here.

    You have such a guilty conscience, so quick to take offense about everything! Senator Mitchell had you in mind I’m afraid.

    The usual frauds are all those who don’t want the media or police to completely identify criminal suspects.

  28. Here are the criminal suspects

    I wasn’t commenting there about anyone here

    No, of course you weren’t. Everybody knows that the ‘usual frauds’ always read selective Aberdonian arseholery on ATW.

    You have such a guilty conscience

    I’m not the one who gives cover and dog whistles to repeated thread derailment of selective criminality reported for political reasons

  31. 😉

    Looks like the target selected itself and got hit. As we know, leftists see things that normal people cannot, such as……

    This very week, leftists at ATW saw a woman beaten and battered by a Conservative MP and then thrown out just for being peaceful. A few months ago, same leftists saw white youths taunting, intimidating and abusing a defenceless old man whose path they had blocked. Now, same leftists claim that Boris Johnson (bought-and-paid-for by the jewsual suspects) battered his (female) partner. I saw none of these things so, clearly, to be leftist is to be deranged – as is demonstrable on this thread

    https://www.counter-currents.com/2019/06/what-is-the-metaphysics-of-the-left-part-one/

    For Leftists, moral excellence consists exclusively in the “fair” and “compassionate” treatment of others. There are no obligations, however, to oneself; in other words, no conception of any imperative to develop one’s body and mind, to restrain one’s appetites, and to discipline oneself. The “lifestyle” of a childless gay hedonist is regarded as just as “valid” as that of a man who sacrifices self-indulgence in order to support a family. Both are simply “choices.” Choosing to be a fat slob and choosing to be an Olympic athlete are both “valid.” And the Leftists’ practice of “fairness” and “compassion” often consists merely in “affirming” everyone’s right to be let alone to make as big a mess of their lives as they choose. (This is the reason “libertarianism” is actually closer to the Left than to the Right.) Leftist belief in “choice” reaches its limit in the case of those who choose not to agree with them.

  33. Speaking of crime, it’s just breaking here that one of Brazillian President Jair Bolsonaro’s security entourage, on an advance trip ahead of his visit to Japan, has just been arrested by the Guardia Civil on a stopover at Seville airport after 39 kgs of cocaine was found in his luggage:

    https://www.elmundo.es/andalucia/sevilla/2019/06/26/5d1340dffc6c835e388b4674.html

    The ethnicity of the alleged drugs trafficker isn’t mentioned.

  34. As we know, leftists see things that normal people cannot

    Nope, I’d be fairly sure that the vast majority of ATW commentators would consider that to be you.

    So based on what you’ve written in this post, you don’t consider me a leftist then Allan?

  37. Phantom,

    You are a little tinker Phantom. 😉

  38. Allan –

    You are richer than almost every monarch, emperor or other ruler who ever lived. Someone on benefits in the UK is astonishingly rich compared to almost every human who ever lived.

  39. That’s true

    A person of modest income in Europe or America is a zillionaire by world or historical standards.

  40. Pete – Queen Victoria did not have a 28″ flat-screen, and I do. Is this the point that you and Phantom are making, really?
