    Muslim campaigners condemn New Zealand women for donning headscarves in solidarity with mosque shooting victims, saying: 'The hijab is NOT empowering for us'

    Source: DailyMail

    Women including PM Jacinda Ardern have worn headscarves in the wake of the Christchurch terror attack in which 50 people were shot dead at mosques
    But critics said it was a sensitive issue for women campaigning against scarves
    One advocate said it was 'ironic and contradictory' to see them worn in allyship

    New Zealand women who wear a headscarf in solidarity with Muslim women have faced a backlash from campaigners who say it is not 'empowering'.

    Some women including Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern have covered up in the wake of the Christchurch mosque shootings which killed 50 people on March 15.

    Ardern won widespread praise for putting on a headscarf when she met members of the Muslim community after the terror attack.



    But women's rights advocates said it was a sensitive issue for many women who campaign against the obligatory wearing of headscarves.

    Critics pointed out that women in conservative Muslim countries such as Iran and Saudi Arabia were forced to cover up for the sake of modesty or risk public rebuke, fines or arrest.

    'When we see non-Muslim women wear the hijab in solidarity of Muslim women it is very ironic and contradictory because our experience with the hijab is not empowering or uplifting in the political sense,' said Maryam Lee, a Muslim women's rights advocate and author in Malaysia who chooses to not wear a hijab.

    'I wish [Ardern] hadn't but I understand where she is coming from because she is not a Muslim and not from a Muslim majority country.'

    Women across New Zealand donned headscarves last Friday as part of a Head Scarf for Harmony campaign.

    It was started by a doctor who heard about a woman too scared to go out as she felt her headscarf would make her a target for terrorism.

    Lee, who has written a book called 'Unveiling Choice' about the hijab, said women in Malaysia opting not to wear headscarves would now receive more harassment and pressure to wear the hijab by Muslims citing Ardern's actions.

    Women in Muslim-majority Malaysia, which has a large population of ethnic and religious minorities, have been barred from government offices in the past for attire that officials deemed as indecent, such as skirts or shorts.

    Masih Alinejad, an Iranian activist and journalist who hosts the website My Stealthy Freedom where women in Iran post photos without headscarves, had mixed feelings about the campaign.

    Alinejad has lived in self-imposed exile since 2009 and received death threats for her campaigning against the obligatory wearing of headscarves.

    'I felt admiration that a prominent leader and women in New Zealand showed compassion to the Muslim community, but I also felt that you are using one of the most visible symbols of oppression for Muslim women in many countries for solidarity, and it also broke my heart,' said Alinejad.

    'That is why I call on them to show their sisterhood and solidarity with us, who are being beaten up, imprisoned and punished for fighting against compulsory hijab as well.'

    But Mutiara Ika Pratiwi, national secretary of Indonesian women's rights group Perempuan Mahardhika backed Ardern.

    'Giving sympathy to a victim's family is part of a feminist position, and the veil is a symbol for a community that is currently a victim,' said Jakarta-based Pratiwi.

    'Although there are those who criticize her, the majority respect the move. What is important is that Jacinda is able to build a movement of New Zealanders who sympathize with the victims.'

    How Real Is White Supremacy?


    How Real Is White Supremacy? Paul Craig Roberts.


    I don’t share the interest many have in the reported mass shootings. However, there are wider issues associated with the shootings, and I do find these issues interesting. For example, mass shootings are a relatively new occurrence. I believe the first was in 1966 at the University of Texas when a former US Marine who was enrolled as a student shot a number of people from the university’s clock tower. What caused this breakdown in moral behavior? We can’t simply say that the shooter became unhinged or insane. There have always been such people. Had the Marine been on active duty in Vietnam and experienced mass shootings of Vietnamese? Did he decide to bring the horror inflicted by Americans on Vietnamese home to Americans? Did student protests against the Vietnam war in which he was at risk make him feel unappreciated?


    I don’t remember if there were answers provided in 1966. I understand people’s frustration with the lack of answers that is often the case in events today. For example, readers ask me, as if I know, why the New Zealand government has criminalized having a copy of the New Zealand shooter’s manifesto. I do not know, but a good guess is that the New Zealand government wants to control the explanation and does not want any competition from the shooter himself.


    Remember the 2016 Nice, France, truck attack on Bastille Day when a white delivery van was reported to have run over a large number of people. The only video we had of the truck’s progress was a fuzzy one that showed little taken at a distance from a hotel balcony by the exact same person who provided the only video of an earlier reported terror attack in Germany. That the same person happened to be present with camera ready for back-to-back terrorist events in two different countries struck many as suspicious.


    Suspicions mounted when it was reported that Nice city officials had video cameras on every corner, block by block, of the avenue along which the truck progressed, but were prohibited from releasing the videos by the central authorities in Paris who ordered the Nice officials to destroy the only evidence that clearly recorded the event.


    Nice authorities resisted this order as it was an order to destroy evidence, which is a felony, but the evidence was never publicly provided. Many who followed the story justifiably concluded that the French government was hiding the evidence in order to control the story. The presstitute media, including the BBC, never expressed any interest in why the actual evidence of what happened was deep-sixed. The presstitutes reported as if the fuzzy video, which in fact showed no one being hit by a truck much less the more than 500 reported killed or injured, proved the official story.


    All of these terror events, those that seem to be real and those that seem to be staged, have explanations ready prior to the event. Indeed, the explanation of the event is sometimes provided as the news is reported. This should strike people as suspicious, and it does strike some that way.


    Thus, I understand that many wonder why the New Zealand government and the presstitute media are suppressing the shooter’s explanation.


    A long succession of poorly reported terror events, together with such blatant and obvious lies told by Washington and its NATO vassals as Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Assad’s use of chemical weapons, Iranian nukes, Russian invasion of Ukraine, Russiagate, the lies about Gaddafi, Maduro the dictator starving his own people, and so on and on, have destroyed trust in governments and the media. People are accustomed to seeing high government officials of Western countries stand in front of a TV camera and tell the most blatant and obvious lies.


    Whatever you decide is the case in the New Zealand shooting, take care not to conflate a protest or a defense of the West, however misguided, with “white supremacy,” as the latter is how the story is spun. If a defense of the West is white supremacy, then a defense of blacks is black supremacy and a defense of Jews is Jewish supremacy. It is, of course, much safer to defend blacks and Jews than white gentiles, which shows that whites certainly have no supremacy.


    Consider also whether there is a difference between the New Zealand shooter killing Muslims in a mosque and the US and its vassals including the New Zealand government killing Muslims in mosques, weddings, funerals, schools, hospitals, and play grounds during the past 20 years of indiscriminate bombings that constitute “the war on terror.”


    Terror is what the Western governments with scant protest inflict on Muslims. Perhaps the New Zealand shooter thought as everyone else was killing Muslims, he could also.


    Another interesting question is whether leftwing and Jewish groups who work overtime to demonize white people, especially heterosexual males, have any responsibility for the New Zealand shooter’s reported attack. Was it an act of frustration by a shooter provoked by the constant demeaning of his race, gender, sexual preference, and culture?


    Jewish lobbies have largely succeeded in establishing Jewish Supremacy. In many Western countries it is, or borders on, a hate crime to criticize Jews and Israel. Scholars have even been imprisoned for correcting errors in the Holocaust story. In the US Jewish lobbies have succeeded in having half of the states pass laws denying state government contracts to any business or person who participates or supports in any way boycotts of Israeli goods and services or advocates for disinvestment in Israeli companies. President Trump even cut off US aid to the Palestinians whose country has been stolen by Israel. It is considered anti-semitism to even mention what Israel has done, and is currently doing, to Palestinians. Professors lose their university positions. Journalists get fired. Students are sent to sensitivity training.


    This is real supremacy. White gentiles have nothing like it. Yet Jewish lobbies—the very people who constantly complain about hate speech—use hate speech to the full extent as they lead the movement to demonize white gentiles. Here is the latest “media advisory” from the Center for Jewish Civilization at Georgetown University.

    How Do We Deal with a New Ecosystem of Hate and Anti-Semitism on the Far Right?




    A Growing and Dangerous Extremist Movement in America is Combining Old Nazi Ideas with New Tactics and Social Media



    Wed., April 10 Georgetown University-sponsored conference at the National Press Club brings together top scholars, journalists and diplomats to explore “Contemporary White Supremacy in America:



    What are its Links to the Nazi Past?”


    WASHINGTON — In the United States and across the globe, attacks by violent networks of extremist hate groups against Jews and other minorities have been on the rise. Building on worldviews from the Nazi era, combined with modern communications and recruitment tactics, white supremacist groups have been gaining new followers. As a result, in the past few years we have witnessed the most deadly anti-Semitic incident in the country’s history at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh in 2018, where 11 were killed; a neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville in 2017 that terrorized an entire city; and the 2015 attack in Charleston, South Carolina by a white supremacist where nine African American churchgoers were killed.
    These extremist incidents are connected and cannot be explained away as solitary acts of madmen and bigots. “Extremist groups in America are invoking anti-Semitism and hate through social media and bringing the practices and theories of their Nazi forebears into a new era. Organized hate groups are indoctrinating individuals and cells in a manner similar to terrorist groups,” said Jacques Berlinerblau, Director of the Center for Jewish Civilization at Georgetown University, the conference sponsor.




    While efforts are being made by social media companies such as Facebook to shut down hate speech, and civil rights groups have been pushing back against extremists through protests and court action, activity by white supremacists continues to grow. On April 10, The Center for Jewish Civilization at Georgetown University will host a day-long conference, “Contemporary White Supremacy in America: What are its Links to the Nazi Past?” beginning at 9 am at the National Press Club in Washington, 529 14th Street NW, 13th Floor.



    The conference brings together top scholars, journalists and diplomats to explore white supremacist movements in this country and how hate groups in the United States draw upon ideas, propaganda, and recruiting techniques from the Nazi era, and how they diverge.


    Former CBS Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent and “60 Minutes” contributor Lara Logan will moderate the morning session. Speakers include reformed violent extremist Christian Picciolini; world renowned expert on Nazi tactics and genocide Father Patrick Desbois, who uncovered links between ISIS attacks on the Yazidis and Nazi practices; other moderators including Jessica Roda, an expert on Jewish music and politics who will dialogue with Kirsten Dyck, an expert on White Power and neo-Nazi hate music; and Kristen Clarke, the president of the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, who played an instrumental role in Facebook’s decision last month to ban discussion about “white nationalism” and “separatism” from the social media site.



    Some sessions will deal with topics related to women in White Power groups, while others will look at how anti-Semitism has changed between the 1930’s and today’s Alt-Right movement. A complete conference schedule can be found here.



    The conference is open to members of the media at no charge. PLEASE RSVP HERE.




    Will this meeting be broken up by the “alt-right” “neo-Nazi” equivalent of Antifa? Not a chance. Indeed, in what sense does an alt-right really exist and to what extent is the term a creation of those intent on demonizing white people?


    Note that in the Center for Jewish Civilization’s news release, people who went to defend a statue of Robert E. Lee from demolition are described as “neo-Nazis.” Why is it “Nazi” and “white supremacy” to defend a historic statue of a person widely respected in his own time and today even at the US Military Academy at West Point?


    The Center for Jewish Civilization’s news release makes it clear that the Jewish group is creating the image of a vast white supremacist plot to terrorize and kill every one else. If any such white supremacist groups do exist, they are isolated and infiltrated by the FBI. Indeed, the FBI may have organized them for purposes of its own.


    Are the reckless and irresponsible accusations leveled against white people by the Center for Jewish Civilization intended to produce in reality the bogeyman fantasy in the Jewish lobby’s news release, a fantasy that will grow larger in a conference whose purpose is to further demonize gentiles, Christians, and critics of Israel? Was it demonization of this kind that produced the New Zealand shooter?

    At first i was glad about this, but then i realised as i dug a bit deeper, this was a false flag event.

    Look at this
    https://www.sport24.co.za/Rugby/Supe...hange-20190403

    Christchurch - The Crusaders said they were considering a name change on Wednesday, admitting many found the association with the anti-Muslim crusades of the Middle Ages offensive in the wake of the Christchurch mosque attacks.


    Sports team dropping their name.

    Typical. NZ patriots should rise up and start defending their country.

    Uhm to be honest, I've still got ambivalent feelings about the shooting. Yes, it was sheer murder and a massive crime but I don't feel shock or consternation. Didn't feel it the day it happened, don't feel it today. Have I become a cold and cynical person? I don't know. One side of me wants to classify the attack as an insane & relentless malice, the other side wants to tell me 'About Muslims: What goes around, comes around.' After countless terror attacks and all that hate of Muslims concerning us 'infidels' here in Europe and elsewhere, isn't it just a harsh retribution...a symbol that not all Europeans will accept submissive defeat? A signal to the world that some of 'us' will fight back?



    He was seemingly just a normal Aussie guy. And then the rage consumed him.

    It's weired. And I've come a long way from a heartfelt Catholic girl to the woman I'm now. My old myself would have prayed for the killed souls. And my myself today shows a slight form of malicious glee. Whatever, I talk too much.

    It is said that violence begets violence. And this is probably true to some extent. But Karma can be a bitch. And sometimes we just gotta get our halos dirty to let others know not to mess with us.
    Not all in life is at it appears to be.

    Former mayoral candidate says police took his guns because he 'supports Trump'

    Source: tvnz



    Police have confiscated several weapons from one-time Auckland mayoral candidate Adam Holland, saying they hold "serious concerns" for his "mental and emotional wellbeing".

    Mr Holland, 28, has taken to Facebook to protest the confiscation, saying he believes it was prompted by the March 15 shooting, and that the guns were only taken because of his political views.

    Mr Holland has been outspoken in his support of US President Donald Trump and has expressed right-wing views many times.

    The confiscation, on March 28, came just two weeks after the worst mass shooting in New Zealand's history, which was allegedly carried out by a white man with alt-right views.

    In a Facebook post, Mr Holland said police had visited him and seized two air guns, as well as a crossbow.

    Mr Holland posted a photograph of the notice he received from police about his air rifles - a Ruger Blackhawk .177 and a Hatsun Striker .177.

    The notice, signed by Otago Lakes-Central area commander Inspector Olaf Jensen, said his weapons are now being held by police, and outlined the reasons for their confiscation.

    "I do not believe you to be a fit and proper person to be in possession of an airgun," the letter reads.

    "Police hold serious concerns regarding your mental and emotional wellbeing."

    Police declined to comment to 1 NEWS, citing privacy reasons.

    Under Section 41 of the Arms Act, police have the right to order the surrender of an air gun if they believe the holder is not a "fit and proper person".

    "It's obvious what this is about ... somebody in Christchurch, who I've never met, killed 50 people at two mosques on the 15th of March 2019," Mr Holland wrote.

    "The detective told me over the phone (all recorded) that these firearms were seized because I'm 'right wing' ... this is political persecution in New Zealand, 2019.

    He wrote on Facebook that "the police reasoning (over the phone) for taking my airguns is that I'm a 'right wing white supremacist'.

    "When asked further, they said it's because I've been on the record supporting US President Donald Trump.

    "You can't freely support the US President in New Zealand without facing persecution."

    Mr Holland told 1 NEWS he "completely understands [police's] concerns", but said he is not a threat to anyone.

    Mr Holland supplied a photo of a valid Department of Conservation hunting permit, and told 1 NEWS that was the primary use of his air rifles - shooting game like rabbits and goats.

    "There's a state of high security, a high terror alert - a massacre's taken place, an unspeakable massacre, and I can understand that, and I can understand why they would piece together all that crap I did in the past - but a lot of it was just taking the piss.

    "In regards to the psychiatric business - I've [had] a problem with alcohol in the past and that's true and that's proven, but psychiatrically, I've only got anxiety problems.

    "I don't have, like, psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, nothing like that - they've made a wild assumption based on my actions, I believe."

    According to the notice, Mr Holland now has the option of selling the weapons to someone else within three months, forfeiting them to police, or appealing the decision.

    A HISTORY OF CONTROVERSY

    Mr Holland entered the 2016 Auckland mayoralty race on a satirical platform of policies based loosely around President Trump's rhetoric, and made the news after a candidates debate at Auckland University's Shadows bar devolved into chaos.

    During that event, Mr Holland, dressed in a kaftan, took control of the microphone and repeatedly shouted, among other things, "Allahu Akbar" - Arabic for "God is great". He later defended his outburst by saying he was "incredibly drunk" at the time.

    1 NEWS reported soon after that Mr Holland was convicted of driving with five times the legal blood alcohol limit, in an incident where he rear-ended a car carrying a mother and her two children before driving away.

    In 2017, Queenstown Police were called to investigate after two men put up posters at Queenstown Resort College bearing anti-semitic slogans.

    Mr Holland later told the Otago Daily Times that he was one of the two men involved, and at that time identified himself as "the leader of the NZ Altright Party".

    HOLLAND SAYS HE HAS CHANGED

    Speaking to 1 NEWS from Queenstown, Mr Holland said he has taken steps to be a better person since the aforementioned incidents.

    "That entire 2016 mayoral election thing, that was just a joke between a few friends and I that got a bit out of hand - ultimately I was a twat for what I did ... I was trying to play the victim a bit here and there," Mr Holland said.

    He said he was involved in the Queenstown poster incident, but that the posters did not bear any swastikas, and were "against the country of Israel - right after they had carried out a bombing".

    Mr Holland said he was in a bad head space at the time 1 NEWS published a story about his drink driving conviction, and made comments which didn't reflect how he really felt, adding that he is now "very remorseful" for what happened.

    "From mid-2018 onwards, I've lived a healthy life - I've lost between 25-30kg of fat from excessive drinking and eating, I volunteer at the Salvation Army once per week, I try to give back to the community these days.

    "I try not to be such a dick all the time and put myself in position where it's going to piss a lot of people off - I've done a lot of that.

    "I made some stupid comments to you [1 NEWS], I probably insulted you a bit ... I was just drunk, being a dickhead, I had depression issues, anger problems most likely ... I wish I could take that back, but I obviously can't."

    Highly Doubtful, but okay. This politician, being the national minister of defence, has every reason to hope international politics lie at the root of the terror attacks.

    Sri Lanka bombings were retaliation for Christchurch shooting, defense minister says



    “Extremist group named National Thawheed Jamaath carried out Sunday's terror attacks in response to terror attacks in Christchurch," the official said.

    By Sanjeev Laxman and Ben Kesslen

    COLOMBO, Sri Lanka — Sri Lanka's defense minister said Tuesday that the coordinated Easter Sunday attacks that killed at least 321 people were in retaliation for the recent Christchurch mosque massacre in New Zealand.

    "Extremist group named National Thowheed Jamaath carried out Sunday's terror attacks in response to terror attacks in Christchurch," Defense Minister Ruwan Wijewardene said.

    The shootings in March in New Zealand killed 50 people and led the country to take swift action to approve new gun control laws.

    New Zealand officials classified the alleged gunman in the Christchurch shooting as a "right-wing extremist terrorist" who appeared to post a manifesto detailing his white-supremacist worldview and who had donated to a far-right Austrian group.

    Wijewardene offered little evidence to support the link between the two attacks, not revealing his source.

    New Zealand officials said they are not able to confirm the connection.

    "New Zealand has not yet seen any intelligence upon which such an assessment might be based," the office of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said in a statement.

    Sri Lanka is primarily Buddhist, with significant Muslim, Christian and Hindu minorities. While anti-Muslim bigotry has risen in the country recently, there isn't a history of violence and tension between the country's Muslim and Christian communities.

    Wijewardene also said the "weakness" of Sri Lanka's security apparatus, which had received warnings of an impending attack on the nation's churches, is to blame for failing to prevent the bombings, according to The Associated Press.

    "We never expected it to be so big," Hemasiri Fernando, the chief of staff to Sri Lanka's president, told NBC News on Monday. "We never thought it would happen so soon."
    Recommended

    Two days after the attack, the Islamic State militant group claimed responsibility but produced no evidence to support the claim.

    The coordinated attacks, which set off a wave of concurrent explosions, hit three churches and three luxury hotels. Among the dead was an 11-year-old student from Washington, D.C., who was having breakfast with his family.

    Two siblings, Amelie Linsey, 15, and Daniel Linsey, 19, who were dual U.S.-U.K. citizens, were also killed while eating breakfast at the Shangri-La Hotel on the last day of a family vacation.

    At least 375 people were injured in the attacks.

    After the bombing, Sri Lankan authorities blocked social media, saying it would halt the spread of false information and hopefully reduce tensions throughout the country.

    Citizens Disobey New Zealand Gun Ban, Only 530 of 300,000 People Turned Guns In

    After New Zealand banned people from having guns in reaction to the terrible shooting in March, almost everyone is refusing to obey the law.



    In March, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the “first tranche” in a number of moves to restrict the rights of New Zealand citizens to protect themselves with firearms. This move was in direct response to the horrific murders that unfolded on March 15. Coincidentally, this is the exact move the terrorist who carried out these attacks had hoped for and predicted. The good news is, however, that most citizens are refusing to turn in their guns.

    The terrorist who murdered 50 people earlier this year was engaging in a classic propaganda of the deed in which he predicted—accurately—that his murder would spark the restriction of gun rights. Lawmakers took his bait.

    [...]

    According to a new report from the NZ Herald, however, the citizens feel “safer” by holding on to their guns.

    It is estimated that roughly 250,000 people own the recently-banned semi-automatic weapons in New Zealand. Estimates show that these 250,000 gun owners — who were turned into criminals overnight by their government — own around 300,000 firearms.

    Since the government attempted to disarm these 250,000 people, only 530 guns have been turned in.

    Government officials are attributing the lack of gun turn-ins to citizens wanting to be properly compensated for their weapons. However, the complexity of this situation is likely far different.

    “If they are being serious about their considerations and ensuring that there is fair and reasonable compensation, then firearm owners will wait a bit longer to make sure it is just and it is fair when it is received,” Nicole McKee, Secretary of the Council of Licensed Firearm Owners, told the NZ Herald.

    “We are effectively being punished for the acts of a foreign terrorist, and we want to make sure that our personal and private property is adequately compensated when it is confiscated,” she said.

    But in reality, the people likely don’t want to disarm themselves as this is their only defense against these terrorists. Sure, people don’t simply want to be robbed of their property without compensation. However, there is no amount of money that can compensate someone into being defenseless.
