    Austrian vice-chancellor and leader of the populist Freedom Party (FPÖ) Heinz-Christian Strache slammed the European Union border agency Frontex, labelling it a “people-trafficking organisation”. Vice-chancellor Strache, who has been consistently outspoken against mass migration, made the comments following a meeting in Brussels in his role as Austrian Minister for Sport, slamming Frontex and saying the agency was “anything but a border guard”, Kronen Zeitung reports. Strache spoke specifically about the rescue operations taking place in the Mediterranean in which migrants are often picked up only a few miles off the coast of Libya and other North African countries. and brought...

    An imam of Vienna’s As-Sunnah mosque has called to establish an Islamic State and wants to introduce Sharia Law on Austrian territory, Austria’s Kronen Zeitung reports.The tape of the speech at the As-Sunnah mosque, which is runned by the VSC Cultural Association, has been delivered at Vienna’s Public Prosecutor’s Office. According to the translation from Arabic, the preacher clearly wants to create an Islamic state and introduction of Sharia law. The messages are focused on “infidels” as well. Local politician Leo Kohlbauer wants an investigation into the case: “I assume that in the background of this association is the dangerous...

    After a sustained campaign against the influence of left-wing billionaire George Soros by the Hungarian government, Soros’s Central European University has announced its plans to move from Budapest to Vienna. The Central European University (CEU) has come under fire from the Hungarian government which had previously claimed it was unfair that the institution was allowed to give out both Hungarian and U.S. diplomas while not operating a campus in the USA. Now, the university has announced that it has plans to leave Budapest and move to neighbouring Austria where a new campus will be set up, Swedish radio broadcaster Sveriges...

    Bismarck's Blood and Iron Speech 150 Years Later Written by Bruce Walker One hundred and fifty years ago, on September 30, 1862, Otto von Bismarck gave his famous “Blut und Eisen” (“Blood and Iron”) speech before the Landtag, the Prussian legislature. In his speech, Bismarck claimed that the international policy of a modern state is built upon the willingness to fight — “Blut” (blood) — and the willingness to spend vast amounts of public treasure in creating giant armies — “Eisen” (iron). "The great questions of the time will not be resolved by speeches and majority decisions ... but by...

    Austria’s lower house of parliament voted on Thursday to scrap an impending ban on smoking in bars and restaurants, backing the coalition government despite opposition from health campaigners and opposition parties. The ban is due to come into effect in May and would bring Austria more into line with fellow European Union countries, many of which have far stricter smoke-free legislation, including Britain, Hungary and Bulgaria. More than half a million people in Austria have signed an official petition calling for the ban to go ahead, embarrassing the ruling coalition of conservatives and the far-right Freedom Party (FPO), which has...

    An Israeli company located in Judea and Samaria is working to combat the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement through a monthly box subscription that allows supporters throughout the world the opportunity to be part of the Israel experience. Aryeh Powers, the director of marketing for Lev HaOlam, told Breitbart News that these gift boxes — which include items that are boycotted by anti-Israel entities as part of the BDS movement — reach thousands of people worldwide. “We send thousands of packages to people in multiple countries per month,” he said. These packages are sent to over 40 countries...

    Citizens from more than 30 countries around the world appealed to the UN Secretary-General to suspend UN Human Rights Commissioner Zaid Ra'ad al-Hussein after calling Judea and Samaria communities a "war crime", following the latest report he issued regarding the pace of construction for Jews in Judea and Samaria. "While tens of thousands of people are being slaughtered in Syria, and while women's rights are being disregarded in Iran, the Human Rights Commissioner is issuing a report on the settlement movement in Israel, which details construction information, calling it a war crime", mentioned the letter. "The Commissioner' s obsession with...

    Austria’s Constitutional Court says it will consider whether a third gender should be an option for official records, taking up the case of a person who unsuccessfully sought to have their entry changed to “inter” or a similar word. The court said in a statement on Monday that an initial review raised concerns that having to list one’s gender as female or male contravenes the privacy protections enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights. …

    A young Christian from Syria fled to Austria to escape persecution. When he arrived in Europe, he found himself forced into the company of “refugees” who supported the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra. He had to keep his Christian faith a secret, or risk being killed. Eventually he returned to Syria, where he felt he was more likely to be safe. Anton, who translated the German video report below for subtitling, includes this introduction: A Christian Syrian refugee, Spiro Haddad, recalls his illegal journey to Austria. On the way, he is met by people who openly confide their allegiance to...

    VIENNA (Reuters) - Austria plans to use its presidency of the European Union this year to shift the bloc’s focus away from resettling refugees within the EU and towards preventing further waves of arrivals, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said on Friday. Kurz is governing in coalition with the anti-immigration Freedom Party, making Austria the only western European country to have a far-right party in government. This follows an election last year dominated by Europe’s migration crisis. Austria will take over the rotating six-month presidency of the European Union in July, giving it an important say in...

    * In Germany, 47% of Muslims believe Sharia is more important than German law. In Sweden, 52% of Muslims believe that Sharia is more important than Swedish law. * The studies are supported by European intelligence reports. In Germany, intelligence agencies warned in the early fall of 2015 that, "We are importing Islamic extremism, Arab anti-Semitism, national and ethnic conflicts of other peoples, as well as a different understanding of society and law." * A recent Belgian study, in which 4,734 Belgians were polled, showed that two-thirds of Belgians feel that their nation is being "increasingly invaded".

    When Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz was poised to rise to power in that nation, President Alexander Van der Bellen of the left-leaning Green Party advised him to “form a government committed to the European Union and human rights.” It was a not very veiled message about Austria’s policies regarding migrants and refugees, a contentious issue during the recent elections. Those instructions clearly didn’t sink in very well. Kurz’s People’s Party was aligning with the decidedly right-wing Freedom Party and some new policies announced this week demonstrate a substantially different view of the migrant situation. Under these new marching orders, migrants...

    Nearly 30 years ago, the people of Eastern Europe were freed from the yoke of communism. Their liberation is a reminder that the Cold War didn’t just end -- it was won. And it was won because the ideas espoused by leaders such as Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II were far stronger than any army the Soviet Union could ever field. But eternal vigilance, as the saying goes, is the price of liberty. Freedom that is won can, through neglect, become freedom lost. Which is why, since the lifting of the Iron Curtain, America has...

    VIENNA — “Don’t let the Nazis govern!” Even as the chant rang through a crowd of several thousand people gathered in the streets this week, the nation’s president made official a development unthinkable just a few years ago: An unapologetically far-right party once again is holding the reins of government in Austria. Despite the protests, President Alexander Van der Bellen swore in a coalition government headed by Chancellor Sebastian Kurz’s conservative People’s Party (OVP) in alliance with the far-right Freedom Party, (FPO) — a political party whose antecedents date back to former Nazis after World War II. With a seat...
