Legal expert condemns Dutch patience for jihadists
A case that is representative of the ongoing Islamization of the Netherlands has exposed the Dutch tolerance for Islamic extremists, argues Paul Cliteur, a distinguished law professor in the Netherlands from Leiden University and a defence witness for Geert Wilders when Wilders was on trial for “hate speech”.

In the conservative Dutch daily Dagelijkse Standaard, Cliteur addresses a recent controversy over the remarks and activism of Moussa Lghoul, also known as Moussa L. or Abou Ilias, a self-proclaimed jihadist in the Netherlands. Cliteur wonders why people like Lghoul cannot be deported.
“It is a big mystery why dangerous jihadists are not deported from the Netherlands,” the Leiden professor said and added that his “patience was running out” with the soft policy toward terrorists who are dangerous to the state, and who cannot be deported. He goes further: “The Dutch system of justice, our government, the country, has been endlessly patient.”
The Hague jihadist, Moussa L. [Lghou] had wanted to take action in the terror section of the Rotterdam prison because nine years’ imprisonment was demanded against two men for preparing a terrorist attack, according to Wout Willemsen, journalist of the Dagelijkdse Standaard.
Moussa had announced that he wanted to die as a martyr and that his “patience was running out” with the Dutch, De Telegraaf reported. According to a terrorism expert, Moussa L. appears to be on the brink of organising a terrorist attack. “I have been following jihadist Abu Ilias and his entourage on social media for quite some time,” Flemish expert on radical Islam Peter Velle told De Telegraaf. “They are really dangerous. He has many sympathizers in Antwerp, among other places. A new Sharia class has arisen among us.”
Geert Wilders tweeted in response that he had a solution for the problem: Kick Moussa L. out of the country.
Cliteur pointed out that Moussa’s expressed lack of patience contained a message that the jihadist thought he had not gained enough recognition. Therefore “his patience was running out”. Part of the problem however is that too many people, especially people in The Hague, think that somehow, Moussa has legitimate claims even though they condemn terrorism.
This is evident from the reaction after the statement by Wilders that Moussa must be deported from the country. His suggestion has met with no enthusiasm. In fact, as Cliteur pointed out, Wilders is being attacked in the mainstream media because he suggested that the jihadist must be deported.
Sigrid Kaag, the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs, even denounced Wilders as an enemy of democracy: “Another poisonous attack by Wilders on the press. This is an attack on all of us. And on our freedoms. More than ever, we need to protect them. We owe that to our democracy.”
And that is why the attacks will continue, concluded Cliteur. The legal expert is a member of the Dutch political party Forum voor Democratie, where he is chairman of the advisory board and the party’s official think tank. In 2019 he was elected to be parliamentary group leader for Forum voor Democratie in the Dutch Senate
This week Wilders tweeted a photo of at least a hundred jihadist death threats against him currently being processed by the police.

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. 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.
