French Author Jean Raspail has Died at Age 95

He died from the Chinese virus.

Invasion of Europe news….

If you don’t know about Raspail or have never read his 1973 novel, The Camp of the Saints, you must.

Yikes! See the price of this book now! https://www.amazon.com/Camp-Saints-Jean-Raspail-ebook/dp/B00QKNDV9S

Actually even mention of the book, banned in some parts of the world, could bring the speech police down on RRW again just as it approaches its 13th anniversary.  (It was this time last year that they succeeded in shutting down RRW for a few months.)

Chronicles has published an excellent obituary about the man who told the truth nearly a half century before most see it now—western civilization is committing suicide by ‘welcoming’ mass migration from the third world.

You might have noticed how mention of the novel by Trump adviser Stephen Miller caused the Left (specifically the Southern Poverty Law Center and its media sycophants) to melt down last year, see here at NPR.

Below is a bit of an obituary for the “thinker” by Srdja Trifkovic at Chronicles:

(emphasis is mine)

The great and good French novelist and thinker Jean Raspail died on June 13, three weeks short of his 95th birthday. I was deeply saddened by the news, although at his age it was to be expected. It is ironic that he succumbed to the COVID-19 virus, the product and totemic symbol of our age and the globalized world, both of which he loathed with a passion.

Marine Le Pen

In Camp of the Saints, his best-known work, Raspail castigated the “submersion” of France by the landing of a fleet of derelict boats from India loaded with refugees. The rest of the grim story is known to Chronicles readers, or should be.

“We must reread The Camp of the Saints, which, beyond evoking with a talented pen the migratory perils, had—long before [Michel Houellebecq’s] Submission—mercilessly described the submission of our elites,” tweeted Marine Le Pen in tribute to Raspail.  In addition to his resolute stand against all Third World—but especially Muslim—immigration, and in line with his traditionalist understanding of Catholicism, Raspail condemned communism and capitalism with equal force, as the two monstrous twins born of modernity.

[….]

In his final years—almost five decades after publishing his prophetic dystopia—Jean Raspail was resigned that our civilization is on the “road to disappearance.” As he explained in an interview published in Valeurs Actuelles in 2013, he had no desire to join the massive circle of intellectuals who spend their time debating immigration because, in his view, such talk is useless:

The people already intuitively know that France, as our ancestors shaped her over the centuries, is on the road to disappearance. The audience is being kept amused by endless talk about immigration, but the final truth is never stated. 

[….]

What can be done? Raspail’s verdict was clear:

There are only two ways to deal with immigrants. Either we accommodate them, and France—her culture, her civilization—will be eradicated without so much as a funeral. In my view, that is what is going to happen. Or else we do not accommodate them at all, which means we stop sanctifying the Other and rediscover our neighbors.

Jean Raspail will be sorely missed by all Frenchmen and other Europeans who refuse to go gently into the multicultural night.

There couldn’t be a better time in world history, as the heathen hordes (of various hues!) run wild in the streets of the civilized world, erasing history and attempting to silence anyone who disagrees with them through intimidation and fear, to read The Camp of the Saints.

Idaho: Somali Arrested in Rape Investigation

The story widely reported in the local media a month ago simply says a “Boise man” was arrested and charged in late May on suspicion of rape and kidnapping.

Here it is at the Idaho Press, but the story is almost the same everywhere else it is published. (Hat tip: Phil):

Boise man arrested on suspicion of December rape

Siyad Matan, 21, is charged with rape and kidnapping, according to online court records.

Police believe on Dec. 27 he sexually assaulted a woman in a parked car, according to Haley Williams, police spokeswoman. Police also believe Matan wouldn’t let the woman leave the car during the course of the incident, which is relevant for the kidnapping charge.

Matan knew the woman, according to Williams. Police investigated the incident, and sent their investigation to the Ada County Prosecutor’s Office. Matan was arrested Tuesday, according to Williams.

Matan appeared in court Wednesday afternoon and a judge set his bail at $50,000, according to online court records. His next court appearance is set for June 3. [I am not seeing any news about what happened with his court appearance now nearly two weeks ago, one more case the media doesn’t want you to know about?—ed]

I want to know if Matan is a refugee resettled in Idaho.

Searching around on the internet I came across the name Siyad Matan who is a Somali refugee track star in Idaho who garnered a lot of attention in the liberal press.  See for example this story from 2016.

From the Idaho Statesman:

Refugees find home with Borah cross country

Is it the same guy? Does anyone know? Are there no curious reporters in the local press? And what happened to the case, the arrest was a month ago?  Surely he has appeared in court.  Why no follow-up (that I can find)?

Calling all Idaho readers!  Let me know if you see anything further or if you can confirm if the track star Siyad Matan (now a student at the College of Southern Idaho) is also the alleged rapist Siyad Matan.

 

UK Terrorist Was a Libyan Refugee (as you likely already know!)

I don’t always post about stories that are getting widespread attention, but figured I better post this one because there are a few too many competing news items these days that might be distracting you.

This is just a reminder that Islamic terrorism is still a scourge on the west.

Libyan Khairi Saadallah arrested in bloody knife attack

Immediately the media is attempting to urge everyone to move along and pay no attention to another atrocity as three human beings are murdered by yet another fake Muslim ‘refugee’ who had been ‘welcomed’ into the UK.

If you want to catch up on the story, the best place to do it is at Jihad Watch.

Robert Spencer was on it immediately with this post (with a little context!),

“When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (Qur’an 47:4).

UK: Muslim stabs random people in the neck, three feared dead, two more in critical condition, “terror-related”

Then he followed with additional posts:

UK: Muslim who murdered three in stabbings in Reading is “refugee” from Libya

UK counterterror top dog: Motive of Muslim who stabbed 3 to death “far from certain,” could be mental health issues

UK: Cousin of migrant from Libya who stabbed three people to death says he converted to Christianity

UK: MI5 suspected that “Christian” migrant who stabbed three to death was planning to go to Syria to join the jihad

UK: Brother of Libyan migrant murderer has pictures promoting jihad, calls Britons “dogs” and “children of haram”

See a story like this, the best place to go to get the scoop is Jihad Watch or the Geller Report.

Here They Come! UN Announces that Refugee Travel Will Resume Immediately

You may remember that in mid-March the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and its partner the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the entity that processes refugee travel, announced that due to the Chinese Virus crisis refugees would not be traveling to a new country. This was to protect the refugees from picking up the virus.

It was only a few days ago I told you that refugee travel continued to be stalled at the UN level, well, all that has changed.

Yesterday the UN announced that the program would now resume to deal with an immediate backlog of 10,000 third worlders headed to the first world.

From a press statement by the UNHCR:

Joint Statement: UN refugee chief Grandi and IOM’s Vitorino announce resumption of resettlement travel for refugees

The temporary hold on resettlement travel, which was necessitated by disruptions and restrictions to international air travel caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, delayed the departures of some 10,000 refugees to resettlement countries. Throughout this period, UNHCR, IOM and partners continued to process and counsel refugees and resettled scores of emergency and urgent cases.

If you see a bag like this at your local airport, know that a new refugee is arriving (that is, assuming you are traveling at all!).

In addition, numerous resettlement countries established or expanded their capacities to apply flexible processing modalities, to adapt and ensure the continuity of their resettlement programs in unpredictable circumstances.

Although many travel restrictions still remain in place, as these begin to lift in many resettlement countries more refugee departures can be anticipated. UNHCR and IOM will continue to work with our government partners and other stakeholders around the world to move towards a return to normal operations as swiftly as the situation allows in each country.”

There was no moratorium!

During the supposed halt in refugee travel, the US admitted 523 (emergency) refugees that were distributed to 33 states.

Using data from the Refugee Processing Center, here is where the 523 who came in during the height of the virus crisis in the US, from March 17th, when the spigot was supposedly closed, to today.

Top ten states ‘welcoming’ refugees are: Texas (always number one!), Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New York, California, Georgia, Idaho/Utah (tied for tenth place).

 

 

The primary sending countries were the DR Congo (as usual), Burma, Pakistan, El Salvador, Iran and Syria.

I was very surprised to see that 194 of the 523 emergency refugees we admitted are Muslims (37%) of some stripe, included are 13 Somalis. 45 of 65 from Burma are Rohingya Muslims.  No Christians from Syria out of 23 arrivals were among them, and only 4 of 17 from Iraq are Christians.  So much for saving the Christians of Syria and Iraq!

I will be watching and let you know when I see the floodgates fully open!

Chinese Virus Update from Refugee Camp in Bangladesh

When I saw this headline (below) this morning, I figured this was it—COVID-19 was running like a “wildfire” through the largest refugee camp in the world—Cox’s Bazar—where reports say that a million “vulnerable” Muslim Rohingya live check to jowl in filthy conditions—a prime location for coronavirus “carnage.”

From Devex:

As COVID-19 deaths rise in Cox’s Bazar, is increased testing enough?

Regular readers know that I have been following the dire warnings now for months about the “catastrophe” the international humanitarian community and the mainstream media has been predicting for Cox’s Bazar and other large refugee camps around the world.

Described by the mainstream media as a “tinderbox,” no social distancing is possible at Cox’s Bazar refugee camp for Rohingya Muslims

 

See my previous post here about the first Chinese Virus death in the camp.

Now here is the story about how the deaths have been rising (remember the first case of Covid was reported a month ago)—rising to two!

MANILA — Bangladesh has reported a second death due to COVID-19 in the Rohingya refugee community in Cox’s Bazar on Tuesday along with five new positive cases.

[….]

Bangladesh has put areas of Cox’s Bazar on lockdown over the weekend. Cases in the district have gone over 1,000, according to the latest government data. However, only a small percentage comes from the refugee community in Cox’s Bazar, where 35 cases have been reported to date since the first one was confirmed last May 14.

So much for modeling out of Johns Hopkins!

An earlier modeling analysis by Johns Hopkins University in March projected that a single case there could lead to an estimated 119-504 cases under a low- to high-transmission scenario in the first 30 days.

“The numbers are not rising as we had feared. However, all the conditions are present for an extremely serious situation for one of the most marginalized people groups in the world,” Matt Ellingson, director of relief and humanitarian affairs at Food for the Hungry, told Devex last week.

More here.

We will be watching and reporting on this important test area for the value (or lack of value) of social distancing.
