    * 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". "We cannot and...

  • Austria’s welcome mat for migrants just got considerably less welcoming

    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...

    A coalition between the anti-immigration Austrian People's Party and the anti-establishment Austrian Freedom Party, which will be sworn into office on December 18, is poised to catapult Austria to the vanguard of Western Europe's resistance to mass migration from the Muslim world. The massive demographic and religious shift underway in Austria, traditionally a Roman Catholic country, appears irreversible. Austria has also emerged as a major base for radical Islam. "We have a lot in common [with Israel]. I always say, if one defines the Judeo-Christian West, then Israel represents a kind of border. If Israel fails, Europe fails. And if...

    In Europe’s latest shift to the right, the expected next chancellor of Austria announced that his conservative party had cemented terms to form a government with the country’s anti-immigrant Freedom Party. In announcing the deal, which comes exactly two months after the Alpine country’s parliamentary election, Sebastian Kurz said his center-right conservatives and the nationalists had agreed to govern on a platform of tax cuts, social welfare and an increasingly tough stance against illegal immigration. Mr. Kurz, who is expected become the world’s youngest leader at 31 years old when the country’s president approves his coalition, said that Austrians voted...

    Warsaw’s controversial shake-up of its judiciary, which could force two-fifths of supreme court judges to step down, is causing increasing friction with Brussels. The country’s new prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, is braced for the EU to issue an extaordinary formal warning by triggering article 7.1, a procedure which could lead to member states having bloc voting rights suspended. He said: “As far as I understand, the decision has already been made that next Wednesday [December 20] the European Commission plans to start article 7.1…it will most likely be triggered.” This could pave the way for the suspension of voting rights...
  • Austria joins Eastern Europe! Rejects EU plans for more migrants

    Austria’s new chancellor, Sebastian Kurz, said that the European Union’s migrant quotas have not worked and that he wants to change the “erroneous refugee policy”. Kurz has now joined forces with the leaders of Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic; countries that have already refused to adopt the EU migrant quota scheme. According to Kurz it is “positive that Tusk (President of the European Council) and several European states are pressing first and foremost for decent border protection and spending more EU funds on this”. Earlier Tusk called the troubled scheme “ineffective” and “highly divisive” before an EU summit in...

    A fire followed the blast which happened around 08:45 (07:45 GMT) at the Baumgarten site, just east of the capital Vienna, near the Slovak border. On Twitter, Austrian police said the situation was under control and a technical fault had caused the blast. The flow of Russian gas has dropped, triggering price hikes in Europe. Baumgarten is a major hub for imported gas Russian gas, which is sent on to a number of European countries. The facility receives about 40bn cubic metres of gas per year. ... Gas Connect said the incident should have no effect on gas deliveries to...

    Austria's top court has ruled that same-sex couples can get married from the start of 2019, declaring a previous law discriminatory. The Constitutional Court overturned a law that restricted same-sex unions to civil partnerships, according to court documents seen by CNN. The decision brings Austria into line with many other European nations including Germany, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, France and the UK.

    November 17, 2017 was literally a Black Friday. Reinhard Fellner, a card-carrying Social Democrat as well as chief of “Initiative Social Austria,” was sentenced in provincial court to three months (three years on probation) for denigration of Islam (§ 283 StGb). Any ever-so-small criticism of Islam in the next three years will lead to the completion of the sentence. This is so much more shocking, since he made a very mild criticism, which is far below the level of criticism which would be possible and necessary in a free and open society, to call attention to the dangers endemic to...

    The remarkable life of the Hollywood siren who pioneered groundbreaking scientific inventions that paved the way for wifi and Bluetooth will be told in a new film. Hedy Lamarr, considered by her show business peers to be the most beautiful woman in the world during the 1940s and 50s, starred alongside the likes of Spencer Tracy, James Stewart and Clark Gable during her glittering acting career. But she was also a brilliant scientist who helped devise a frequency-hopping system which eventually formed the foundation for modern technologies such as wifi, GPS and Bluetooth.

    New statistics from the Ministry of the Interior show that last year's sex offenders have reached a dramatic peak: from 2015 to 2016 a rise of 26.18 percent. It is especially striking that Afghans are often seen as perpetrators in statistics. As the "press" reported on Thursday, 5253 sexual offenses were reported in 2016, compared with 4163 cases the year before. In 2017, on the other hand, a better result could be steered, as in the first half-year, 2422 sexual offenses were reported. Afghans are at the top of sex offenders A look at the nationalities of the suspects in...

    In a surge of populist fervor, Austrian voters ousted leftist incumbents from office Sunday and swept a young conservative and his party into power. The center-right People's Party (OVP) claimed the top spot in the national elections, with 31 percent of the vote. As a result, party leader Sebastian Kurz is advancing to the chancellorship of Austria. At just 31, upon assuming office Kurz will be world's youngest national leader. After declaring victory, Kurz vowed that it's time for a change in Austria and thanked those for entrusting him to guide the country through the coming transformation, "Many people have placed great...

    Sebastian Kurz's election victory last night has sent shockwaves through Europe as it appears he may seek a coalition with the country's anti-immigration Freedom Party. The Eurosceptic leader of Austria's right-leaning People's Party has declared victory in a national election that puts him on track to become the world's youngest leader. Kurz, 31, fell well short of a majority and may be looking to strike a deal with another party. The Freedom Party (FPO) got around 26 percent of votes in Sunday's parliamentary vote, boosted by a European migration crisis in 2015 that affected Austria and also led Kurz to...
