‘Confused man’ stabs random pedestrians in Amsterdam – one dead, four wounded
"Confused" men appear to be a new threat to public life in Europe. The 29-year-old man who was arrested for the stabbing incident in the Amsterdam neighbourhood of De Pijp, was not known to the police or the judiciary, the police said on Saturday after an initial investigation. While the mainstream media described the suspect's behaviour, they took care not to divulge his ethnicity or the name of the restaurant where the attacks took place.

On Friday evening, five people were stabbed in and near the Ferdinand Bolstraat in Amsterdam. The killing spree started at the Hayran, a Turkish restaurant, FWM learned. One of the victims died at the scene – a 64-year-old man from Amsterdam. The other victims are between 21 and 28 years old and are in hospital. Three of them come from Amsterdam, one from Haarlem. Investigations so far show that the attack was a random act, police said.
The police assume that one person was responsible for the stabbing. There are no indications of a terrorist motive according to investigators. The arrested man from Amstelveen was interrogated on Saturday and the home of the suspect in Amstelveen was searched last night. Data devices and a car were confiscated.

Far-left Mayor Femke Halsema visited the neighbourhood where the stabbing took place on Saturday and spoke with local residents there. “It’s a horrible event. That makes a big impression on the people,” Halsema told the NOS. “I am very shocked. Precisely because this is such a peaceful neighbourhood. Something like that is not expected here.”
But Islam critic and filmmaker Theo van Gogh was shot to death only a few hundred metres from the “peaceful” neighbourhood in broad daylight. Van Gogh, was killed by a 26-year-old Dutch-born Muslim and since then a series of public figures have been threatened with death by Islamic extremists. The descendant of Vincent van Gogh’s brother was shot and then stabbed with a knife, pinning two notes to his body, to serve as a warning to critics.
Local residents witnessed the terrible consequences of the stabbing last night. A local resident (24 years old, does not want to be mentioned by name) unsuspectingly came out of the metro station on Friday evening when a bleeding girl was carried into an ambulance in front of him. “There were two or three ambulances, but within five minutes police tape cordoned off the site and police cars were pulling up from all sides, I think twenty. There was also someone with an insulation blanket at the traffic light at the bookshop, who was also taken away.”
After taking a look, he decided to rush home. He saw someone else lying at the De Schelde night shop near Hotel Okura. “Then I quickly got away. Really bizarre.”
According to one witness, a person was seen lying lifeless in front of the Hayran Turkish restaurant. “Police officers took turns with an ambulance nurse to administer CPR. They did this for half an hour, while more and more ambulances, police and even trauma helicopters arrived. After half an hour they stopped and put a white blanket over the victim. Then I knew the person had died.”

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.
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."

After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn.

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.
