Dutch counter-terror unit warns that jihadism is spreading
Dutch jihadists are selling their message on the streets again. The propaganda machine is also running smoothly on the internet, says the Dutch The National Coordinator for Counterterrorism and Security (NCTV) in its six-monthly threat assessment.

Jihadists have been fishing in the pond of salafists and there is a dangerous mix taking place, the NCTV warned.
They noted the “non-violent spreading of a message of hatred against the West and the continuing undermining of our democratic values and the rule of law”.
Although the number of ISIS-inspired attacks in Europe has declined sharply since last year, the jihadist movement in the Netherlands continues to pose a threat of violence. Moreover, the movement is growing.
NCTV estimates the number of jihad fans in the Netherlands to be a few thousand. “Around 2010 it was found that this movement did not represent that many anymore. Nobody then thought it possible that jihadism in the Netherlands would grow so strongly. ”
Dutch jihadists may be sensitive to the narrative that the West should be punished with attacks for defeating the ISIS caliphate.
The problem is also that jihadists will be released from prison in the coming years. It concerns “experienced or charismatic figures” that can shake up the jihad scene again.
A great many are still as radical as when they went into their cells. An important recruiter like Azzedine C has been on the loose for a while and Samir A has also been released for some time now without an electronic ankle strap.
The problem is equally present in neighbouring countries where the cell doors will soon swing open for many jihadists. In France in the coming years there will be 115 jihadis released and in the UK eighty people this year alone.
The NCTV also warns against misplaced naivety when recovering women and children from camps in Syria. “The mothers often pretend to be naïve victims taken by their husbands to the so-called ‘caliphate’, but they have generally consciously opted for the journey and are still hanging on to jihadism.
“In addition, ISIS has shown several terrifying videos to even minors, including young children, urging them to commit terrible acts of violence. Recently, a returnee arrested in France stated that ISIS had trained children to commit attacks in Europe. ”
Meanwhile, an Afghan asylum-seeker accused of stabbing two Americans in Amsterdam had a “terrorist motive”, Dutch prosecutors said last week.
The 19-year-old suspect was shot at Amsterdam’s Central Station. “It is apparent from his statements that he believes that in the Netherlands, the Prophet Muhammad, the Quran, Islam and Allah are repeatedly insulted,” prosecutors said, and he was targeting Geert Wilders.
Earlier Monday, German authorities said the man had applied for asylum in Germany and was not considered a security threat there.
The PVV leader responded with shock to RTL Nieuws’s message that Jawed S had shared a video on his Facebook profile just before his terrorist act. In it the flag of the Netherlands is burnt and Wilders is heavily insulted. A few days before, the man had placed an edited photo on his profile in which a knife pierced the head of Wilders.
A traveling companion of Jawed S, also an Afghan, said that he heard a few days ago about the plans to kill Wilders. “He went to the Netherlands to kill that dog.”
Duizenden jihadisten in Nederland. Die vrij rondlopen op straat. In winkelcentra, op stations en in de tram. Overal. En onze grenzen staan wagenwijd open.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Top Researchers Push Back Against Climate Lies."The correlation is as clear as day," explained the Israeli astrophysicist Nir Shaviv, who was hailed by the establishment, before his interview with Forbes was hastily deleted. What he says contradicts the climate narrative, which points to humans as responsible for Earth's climate. Shaviv firmly asserts that it is the sun that controls the climate, something that can be scientifically proven in many ways. Contrary to the popular belief, the sun's influence on Earth has, in recent years, caused unusually cold and rainy weather, a trend that solar researchers warn will worsen significantly in the coming decades. The sun has exhibited an unusually low activity since 2016, during Solar Cycle 24, which was the weakest in a century.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."
What is happening in the Netherlands? It is often difficult to follow events in other countries, especially when distorted by system media. We give Forum for Democracy (FvD) the opportunity to speak out on the political situation in the Netherlands and the staunch resistance they face in trying to save the country.
After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
