The Oslo Police Department Responds to Yet Another Anti-Muslim Post by Pamela Geller, and It’s Awesome

Geller’s fear-mongering refuted again
World • Views: 71,797

A few days ago, Pamela Geller posted yet another hate-mongering anti-Muslim piece about Oslo, Norway, titled: Norway: Oslo Police — “We Have Lost the City”.

Her post is sourced to a very sketchy European website called “Poqari News,” and contains quotes like this:

The article below is about the apocalyptic level of culturally-enriched violence in Grønland, a district of the city of Oslo.

[…]

It looks like Karachi, Basra, and Mogadishu all rolled into one.

[…]

It’s not Norway or Europe anymore, except when there is welfare money to be collected. The police have largely given up. Early in 2010 Aftenposten stated that there are sharia patrols in this area, and gay couples are assaulted and chased away. “Immigrant Fatima Tetouani says that ‘Grønland is more Muslim than Morocco.’”

This time, the Oslo Police district noticed her nasty misleading post, and responded to Geller on Twitter with the following awesome official statement:

That number, of course, is white supremacist code for the eighth letter of the alphabet “H” repeated twice, standing for “Heil Hitler.”

google-translate:

It’s police chief Sveinung Sponheim show who wrote the answer to Geller. By phone Friday night he explains Aftenposten that they decided to react quickly - as soon as they saw what was written.
- It’s not often we do such things. Here we had to react, not only on behalf of the Oslo police, but the entire city, says Sponheim.

- We found out that we had to respond quickly and to describe the situation as it is now, not people around the world believe that Oslo is a dangerous city to live in, he said.

re: #15 Nyet

It is the first time we have received so much attention as this. Afterwards, we have only received positive reactions to our answer, and that’s good.

According Sponheim, there was a period trouble many robberies in Greenland and Groruddalen. Along with schools, child protection and parents took hold of the issue. Since 2011, police also established a robbery group.

- Therefore, the situation is different than it was at the time. There were not people who were robbed, it was youth who robbed youth.

They are also actively dialogue towards minority groups and religious communities. In 2013 they were among others on teambuilding with imams from several mosques in Oslo.

- It is still continuing a dialogue related to many environments. Being in close touch with local communities is important in all of Oslo, but especially Greenland is a district with a great diversity and challenges, says Sponheim.

Well, this sucks. The control board for the fan in our central air system burned out sometime yesterday, which likely explains why all we heard for the last couple days is this loud hum from the system. And because the branch offices of the repair business closed at noon, we can’t even get a new fan ordered until Monday.

As a kid I learned a bit about Islam by reading the (uncensored) stories from 1001 Nights. Some of the stories are particularly aimed at teaching an average person the basics of Islam, e.g. the story of Tawaddud:

Q “What is the Jihad or Holy War and its essentials?” “Its essentials are: (1) the descent of the Infidels upon us; (2) the presence of the Imam; (3) a state of preparation; and (4) firmness in meeting the foe. Its traditional ordinance is incital to battle, in that the Most High hath said, ‘O thou my Prophet, incite the faithful to fight!’” Q “What are the ordinances of buying and selling?” “The Koranic are: (1) offer and acceptance and (2) if the thing sold be a white slave, by whom one profiteth, all possible endeavour to convert him to Al-Islam; and (3) to abstain from usury; the traditional are: making void and option before not after separating, according to his saying (whom Allah bless and preserve!), ‘The parties to a sale shall have the option of cancelling or altering terms whilst they are yet unseparated.’”, Q “What is it forbidden to sell for what?” “On this point I mind me of an authentic tradition, reported by Naf’i of the Apostle of Allah, that he forbade the barter of dried dates for fresh and fresh figs for dry and jerked for fresh meat and cream for clarified butter; in fine, all eatables of one and the same kind, it is unlawful to buy or barter some for other some.” Now when the doctor of law heard her words and knew that she was wit-keen, penetrative, ingenious and learned in jurisprudence and the Traditions and the interpretation of the Koran and what not else, he said in his mind, “Needs must I manoeuvre with her, that I may overcome her in the assembly of the Commander of the Faithful.” So he said to her, “O damsel, what is the lexicographical meaning of Wuzu?” And she answered, “Philologically it signifieth cleanliness and freedom from impurities.” Q “And of Salat or prayer?” “An invocation of good” Q “And of Ghusl?” “Purification.” Q “And of Saum or fasting?” “Abstention.” Q “And of Zakat?” “Increase. Q “And of Hajj or pilgrimage?” “Visitation.” Q “And of Jihad?” “Repelling.” With this the doctor’s arguments were cut off,—And Shahrazad perceived the dawn of day and ceased saying her permitted say.

Ah yes, the uncensored version. My head nearly exploded the first time I started reading it, though the translation I have is the 4-volume one by Mardrus & Mathers. I believe that one was translated from Arabic to French, then from French to English. The language is very poetic (even the parts that made me blush), but I’m sure some things were lost.

I’ve never attempted to tackle the Burton version. It may be more correct since he spoke Arabic fluently and his mother tongue was English.

No, but I’ve been to a parade. Used to live a couple blocks from where they “staged” all the balloons for NYC’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
Also marched in a Columbus Day parade while I was in the Boy Scouts. Oddly, I was carrying the flag of Lebanon

;-) Have you seen Bob Rafelson’s 1990 movie Mountains of the Moon, about Burton and John Hanning Speke? One of my favorite costume dramas.

re: #85 Nyet

In USSR there were retellings for children of such classics as Gulliver’s Travels and Gargantua & Pantagruel. Which is not the worst idea, I guess, but the originals are so much better…

I’m a huge lover of fairy tales and have had this Kindle book of a new translation (2014) of the complete original first version of the Brothers Grimm tales on my wish list for a good long while. I’m waiting for the price to go down to something more reasonable as I’m not willing to spend $21 for an electronic book when I can have the illustrated hardcover version for $25.60. (Unfortunately, traditional printed books aren’t as easy for me to read as they were when I was younger, so it really helps to be able to adjust the text size.)

Edit: for got the link to the book (fixed) and to this review of it.

Take a look at Google Earth.

There are four roads into the wildlife refuge. FOUR. And they are all connected, and they all connect only to the main road. You could block this place in with a suburban traffic detail.

Park a vehicle at each entrance and tell anybody turning in, “I’m sorry, this is a law enforcement situation, we’re not allowing anybody in to the refuge.”

END OF STORY.

The wicked woman uttered a curse, and she became so frightened, so frightened, that she did not know what to do. At first she did not want to go to the wedding, but she found no peace. She had to go and see the young queen. When she arrived she recognized Snow-White, and terrorized, she could only stand there without moving.

Then they put a pair of iron shoes into burning coals. They were brought forth with tongs and placed before her. She was forced to step into the red-hot shoes and dance until she fell down dead.

You don’t need to weigh yourself down with your needs. Just fast movement to the next critical takeover location of your movement in your big ass diesel pick’emup.

When you get there, you count on sympathetic New Patriot Warrior Supporters to show up like a flash mob with all you need. Even more guns! The feds will never know where the supplies are stashed.

Here’s some things to think about concerning the current Malheur standoff.

First, I think the Feds learned a lot from the Bundy ranch standoff. The most important was the Fed LEOs were in the worst possible position to initiate or respond to any potential firefight. The Feds were in a gully that was completely under the command of the sniper located on the highway bridge. Any shots fired would have been a disaster for them. They were wise to back down. I do believe there should have been some follow up actions to arrest and sent to trial. This inaction has led us to the current situation.

The Refuge site is much more advantageous for the Feds than the protestors.

Initially I was appalled the Feds had not blocked off access to the site and cut the power. Seeing how the situation developed, I changed my mind. Most of the publicity the Bundy Bunch has been getting has been negative to downright ridicule. Most of the public sees them as the black hat bad guys.

All the TV crews and reporters on site do serve a useful purpose. Hours of video have been recorded showing every-ones faces and weapons. Somewhere there is a Fed office capturing and saving all the video, the web sites, and tweets for future prosecution. I would not be surprised if there were cute, young female agents (err, I meant “reporters”) along with bulky cameramen from stations WFBI, KUSM, or WDHS on site recording every- one, along with their weapons, who is participating. It’s very easy for them to blend in.

The Feds are keeping their hole cards pretty well covered up. Burns is a very small town. Adding 150-200 new faces driving black Suburban’s would kinda’ get noticed. I suspect the Feds are assembling (staging) their resources in Boise or Reno where they can be sent in quickly via helicopter if needed.

The weather is the biggest advantage the Feds have. The cold will have an effect on the morale on the group. Think Valley Forge. Adding in all the new independent groups will add severe pressure on their command structure. The “leader” of each group will want to be the boss. Going to be some interesting command meetings. The in-fighting will be something to watch. With all the media on site we’ll all get to see it.

The Feds do have complete control over access, power and communications. They have yet exercised any of these options. Eventually they will. Probably in stages, increasing a little bit at a time to put pressure on the groups.

At some point public and/or political pressure will force the Feds to act. I expect the first action will to be cutting off access to prevent resupply. I don’t think the Post Office, UPS or FedEx will want to deliver any packages to the site.

I just hope the Feds take it slow and easy to prevent any armed hostilities.

I think he holds a grudge because a teacher probably called him out as a child. Of course, the excuse we always see here is “Teachers unions give a lot to the Democrats so it’s okay for Christie to teach educators with contempt.” Such a load of shit. I tell you this much. My great aunt/godmother was a teacher. She was the first person in her family to receive a college education and was valedictorian from her high school. She worked very hard to get where she did and it wasn’t so bullying prick like Christie could blame her for education problems.

All the result of playing around with the odds. Going from 1 in 172 million to 1 in 292 million has a way of causing no one to hit the jackpot for as long as it has gone on.

So, people think that they should get in and play, ignoring that the odds suck. And those who are least able to afford gambling are often the ones who spend disproportionately on it.

Charlton Heston on Gore Vidal’s screenplay of Ben Hur: “Vidal’s claim that he slipped in a scene implying a homosexual relationship between the two men insults Willy Wyler and, I have to say, irritates the hell out of me.” (Although there’s plenty of proof that Wyler, Vidal, and Stephen Boyd were in on the joke.)

And one of my all-time favorite Hollywood quotes, Gore Vidal on Charlton Heston’s acting: “Heston’s acting wasn’t just wooden, he was a lumberyard.”

If someone were very wealthy, like Donald Trump, they could buy a ticket for every combination, thus being a sure winner, and show a positive cash flow, with a pot this big.

I don’t think so. Unless I did my math wrong, there are over forty billion possible numbers* and at a minimum $2 per play, He’d be out of money, just to make back $300 million after taxes.

*five numbers with 69 choices each, plus the powerball with 26 choices. 69 to the 5th times 26 is a lot.

Possible. But if it was me, I’d be wanting to have at least more fuel brought in to back up what “may” be there. Having seen many USFS and BLM sites here in Idaho, I can assure you they don’t leave much behind that can be easily removed. In the more remote areas you will have a cabin and out house and that’s about it. Closer in you will find heavy equipment storage as well as cabins, but not fuel or anything else that can be easily removed.

In the “I really do know better than that, what was I thinking category”

I stopped at WalMart to pick up some chips / soda / snacky stuff for the weekend. For reasons that I really can’t explain except by invoking the possibility of demonic or alien possession, I got “Great Value Cheese Dip”. I figured it would be like any other cheese dip, kind of runny, put some in a bowl, maybe nuke it a bit, scoop it up with chips and be happy.

To my shocked horror the product I had purchased had the exact same texture and consistency of a stiff vinyl spackling compound. It also had a similar taste. As much as I am loath to let food go to waste, I have no problems pitching this into the trash.

Why didn’t I buy my usual brand? I’m betting aliens.

Also… here’s a pic of me at work, we were sort of just joking and cutting up in the back, and BAM!!!! this happened. (yes, my beard is unbrushed and unfluffed. Deal with it)

I think he holds a grudge because a teacher probably called him out as a child. Of course, the excuse we always see here is “Teachers unions give a lot to the Democrats so it’s okay for Christie to teach educators with contempt.” Such a load of shit. I tell you this much. My great aunt/godmother was a teacher. She was the first person in her family to receive a college education and was valedictorian from her high school. She worked very hard to get where she did and it wasn’t so bullying prick like Christie could blame her for education problems.

Speaking as a NJ homeowner, I think part of the issue is the fact that a huge chunk of your property tax goes to education. In my case, over 55%. It’s part of the reason taxes are so high in the state in general.

Many New Jerseyites, displaying the incisive critical thinking that Americans are renown for, immediately leap to the conclusion that every teacher is a millionaire who only works 2/3 of the year. They’re the reason your taxes are too high.

Factor in the basic American hatred of education, plus teacher tenure and presto: your conservative scapegoat is ready to serve.

And, as I’ve said before, I’ve met teachers who wholeheartedly endorse Christie. There are teachers here who vote for a man that has vowed to make their careers as difficult as possible.

My nephew, who’s in his senior year at Emerson College in Boston and has developed a fine palate for hops and barley, drinks about 1/100th as much as I did when I was in art school at his age. Since he wants to go into the film biz, this is wise of him. Me, I just wanted to be a painter.

There’s also a North Jersey/South Jersey split, which also could be likened to the Northern version of crossing the Mason-Dixon line. Things get… weird, once you head down south. Much of Northern NJ acts as an extension of NYC as its suburbs, but South Jersey is a world unto itself.

“…Seventeen people work at the refuge headquarters, administering the 190,000-acre site. Their responsibilities include overseeing the refuge’s firefighting administration, removing invasive carp from Malheur Lake and working with volunteers to build paths and make other improvements to the site.

Reporters from Reuters spent a night inside the headquarters with the occupiers earlier this week. They reported a vivid scene, with armed militants vigilant against a federal raid, working in the office of a federal biologist. Working how? Ryan Bundy referred to her as the “Carp Lady,” according to the report.

“She’s not here working for the people,” he told Reuters. “She’s not benefiting America. She’s part of what’s destroying America.”

The Bundys identify with invasive carp.

All this talk about Y’all Qaeda prefering French vanilla creamer, but the real crime is that they put anything in their coffee. Though I suppose white supremacists would prefer their coffee to be anything but black.

Didn’t coffee originate in the Ottoman Empire? And isn’t it now grown mostly in Africa (and a bit in South America and Hawaii?!??)

re: #261 Bubblehead II

Fine look at the list. They are asking for pretty much everything but a means to supply electricity for when the Feds cut power. No solar panels, no generators/fuel. So what the hell are they going to do when the batteries run down? I will give them credit for asking for propane and portable heaters though.

It sounds like a shopping list for free shit to take home. These jerks, all about the free stuff.

re: #291 Bubblehead II

Bringing generators without sufficient fuel seems about right for these geniuses. And it wouldn’t surprise me if very little fuel would be at the refuge - if it is closed for the winter, why would there be a bunch left there?
More reason to think these guys’ main skillset is playing dress-up.
