Germany Banned Hezbollah

The German move last week sparked Iranian outrage. Iran has issued a warning to Germany (“Death to Germany). After the ban, German police visited mosques throughout the country, detaining terror group members.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi slammed Germany’s decision and praised Hezbollah 

“The German government’s decision disrespects the Lebanese government and people,” Mousavi said, “and has always been an effective political party in stabilizing the country and is being supported by the Lebanese and regional people.”  Mousavi added the obligatory “Death to America” (in addition to Germany) and “Death to Israel.” (blah, blah, blah, etc.)

Hezbollah (the Iranian proxy terror group – Hezbollah means “Party of Allah”)  has long been designated a terror group by the U.S. and Israel.

Hezbollah claims to be a religious organization, which is sort of like a snake claiming to be a lion.  Germany continues to suffer because the nation imported a million military age Mohammedan males. Some people claim “unforeseen consequences” but these were clearly predicted.

Jeanne d’Arc, La Pucelle d’Orléans

On April 29, 1429, Joan of Arc, a seventeen-year-old girl with no military experience, relieved the siege of Orleans and triumphantly marched through the city.

Some women don’t look good in armor.

The Siege of Orleans was one of the most significant events of the Hundred Years’ War between England and France. The epic war between Europe’s two greatest rivals began with Edward III’s invasion of Normandy. The kings of England long laid claim to the French crown and were prepared to take it by force. For nearly a century, the English army wreaked havoc on France. They won countless victories such as the legendary battles of Crecy, Poitiers, and Agincourt. France, quite literally on the brink of destruction, needed a hero to save them.

Just over a year later, on May 30 1430, she accompanied a French battle formation that attempted to attack the Burgundian camp at Margny north of Compiègne, when it was ambushed and she was captured.

A year after that, following a trial where she was found to be a witch (substantively) 0n May 30, 1431. Joan was tied to a tall pillar at the Vieux-Marché in Rouen, and was burned to death. After she died, the English raked back the coals to expose her charred body so that no one could claim she had escaped alive. They then burned the body twice more, to reduce it to ashes and prevent any collection of relics, and cast her remains into the Seine.

There is a moral to the story – don’t get captured. And THAT is your sermonette.

New Democrat

Should the Democrat Party totem animal be changed to a sheep?

  1. The Germans would have done better if they hadn’t announced that they would be searching mosques ahead of the raids.

    The Polizei used to be hard core law enforcement. They have gotten soft. It was that way 6 years ago, the last time I was in Germany. If you were non-German, unless it was a capitol offence, the Polizei would shake their heads and tell you to behave, then walk away.

    1. Well that’s depressing. I haven’t dealt with the various German law enforcement agencies for many years, but a couple decades ago, they were very professional. But those people I knew have all retired. Entropy.

  2. Nice to see the Germans growing a pair. Hope this return to sense continues and spreads.
    Wise advice. Better to go down swinging than to fall into the hands of some of the folks we’ve faced.

    1. Yes, I was happy to see the Germans dealing with the savages as well. They have a long way to go to clean the place up.

  3. I really want to know what Hezb did to piss the Germans off so much that they actually took action, instead of glad-handing them like they have been for 30 years…

    -Kle.

    1. They’re always plotting to kill people and blow things up. Likely that sort of terrorist thing that terrorists do.

  4. I agree with Tsquared, the Polizei when I was in Berlin 1976/77 were tough as nails bastards with a heart. They didn’t bother you as long as you were minding your P’s and Q’s. I was an MP and on the check points and I felt they were the most professional of police I encountered.

    1. The evidence was clear. One point brought up in the ecclesiastical court was that she wore armor. That was a clear indication that she dressed in men’s clothes. Only witches did that (then). I don’t think that they caught her boiling a bat in a cauldron (the way that they do in China), but substantive evidence was clear to the panel of judges.

  5. Change the Democrat icon to a sheep instead of a jackass?

    If it’s going to change, that’s too weak. Maybe it was a wolf wearing sheep’s skin.

    1. The sunglasses suggest that there is something going on with the sheep. Maybe that’s not strong enough.

  6. Joan may well have been a witch. Still, one of the key claims at her trial was wearingmen’s clothes, clear evidence of lesbyterian witchery. But let’s not forget she was held naked in her cell and thrown some men’s clothes to cover her tortured body. Not a good episode in the history of christendom.

    Good call. Don’t get captured.

    1. Lesbians were routinely burned as witches, but so were “uppity women”. The Inquisition was designed to determine whether or not you were a witch. Dunking you in water was a particularly telling test. You shoved the person under inquisition under water. If they surfaced, they were a witch, and you burned them. If they drowned, then their innocence was proclaimed.

  7. Wow, your wrong on the Inquisition.

    The Spanish Inquisition was for finding out which Jews and Moslem’s were phony converts.

    The RCC did not hunt for witches. That was a Protestant hunt.

    The RCC had ruled that witches did not exist and that anyone claiming to be one was insane.

    Witch hunts, when the did happen, where usually in rural areas and where stopped by ruling Catholic governments.

    There was a letter written by a Catholic priest that said there was witches but the Church rejected it because the priest was found to hate women.

    It was later accepted by Protestants for use it their witch hunts,

    1. That’s true. I did take liberties with history regarding the “Inquisition”. I used it more as a metaphor in this case.

  8. Oh, and I forgot.

    The Inquisition did not have the power to sentence anyone to death.

    That power was left to governments.

    Joan was murdered, with the help of Pro-English bishops. It was not religion, but politics that led to her death.

    1. They couldn’t shed blood. Which is why they used the rack to determine the truth of things, as if a confession under torture had any validity. Of course Joan was murdered. She was taken as a prisoner of war and she was an inconvenient symbol of French victories. So they cooked her.
