The Cutting Edge of Diversity

Muslim “Refugee” Called Integration Success — Then Slit His Boss’s Throat  •  You can’t make this stuff up. In a news article, migrant hair stylist Mohammad Hussain Rashwani was hailed as a shining example of integration in Germany. Ten months later, which was just a few days ago, an article bore the headline, “Herzberg: Syrian hairstylist slits boss’s throat.”

Yeah, it was Mohammad.

He apparently didn’t go the full Mohammad, since his boss is still alive. But here’s the title and crux of the first piece:

Syrian Hairstylist finds employment in Herzberg

Salon owner Ilona Fugmann is amazed by his skills [Yes, he was especially adroit with a straight-edge razor]

August 31, 2016

In early September, Ilona Fugmann will give the Syrian Mohammad Hussain Rashwani a permanent position in her hair salon in Herzberg. The 38-year-old’s skills immediately convinced her. Mohammad Hussain Rashwani is an example of how well integration can work out.

The article, all of which can be found at Gates of Vienna, goes on to explain Mohammad’s sterling qualities. He “had an excellent command of his craft” and “gets along well with the two female colleagues…. ‘The chemistry is right. Admittedly, Mohammad is a proud person, but very attentive and prudent. He even helps with the clean-up,’ says Ilona Fugmann.”

Of course, “proud” is a euphemism for “prideful,” which reflects a sin (though Muslims don’t see it that way) and basically means Mohammad had more ego than brains and was easily “triggered.” Speaking of which….

Fugmann is quoted as mentioning the difficulty in finding good help and asking, “Why shouldn’t I give him a chance?” I’m guessing her question has been answered, which brings us to the second piece:

Herzberg: Syrian hairstylist slits boss’s throat

June 29, 2017

HERZBERG A bloody deed horrified Herzberg (Elbe-Elster) on Wednesday. A salon owner was attacked by her Syrian employee, and gravely injured.

He was regarded the paramount example of successful integration. The Syrian Mohammad H. (39), a master hairstylist who had fled his homeland, started a new life and found work in Herzberg. He was appreciated and popular in the salon of Ilona F. (64). This makes what happened yesterday, Wednesday, even stranger.

Yes, strange, unfathomable, unprecedented! Who could’ve seen this coming? And if you suggest otherwise on social media, the German government will arrest you and fine the “Islamophobia” out of the social-media company. You will be absorbed.

In fact, the only successful integration occurring is that of many Germans, who’ve been integrated into delusion. All people are the same, you see, and our strength lies in our diversity, I tell ya’. “I’m smart! Not like everybody says… like dumb….!

Except it is dumb believing that all people — and peoples — are the same. We can argue the reasons for the differences, but we ignore them at our peril. As Col. Ralph Peters put it in the excellent little piece “Taliban from Outer Space,” “In my years as an intelligence officer, I saw colleagues make the same blunder over and over: They rushed to stress the ways in which the Russians, the Chinese or the Iranians were ‘just like us.’ It’s the differences that kill you, though.”

He later wrote, “[W]e still hear the deadly cliché that ‘all human beings want the same basic things, such as better lives and greater opportunities for their children.’ How does that apply to Afghan aliens who prefer their crude way of life and its merciless cults?”

What’s deadly here is something I often warn of: projection. This is when we ascribe our mindset, priorities and sense of virtue to others. It’s natural. We behave in certain ways because we think it makes sense, so it must make sense to others, too. Thus are the self-serving cynical, believing everyone is just “out for himself”; thus are innocent little children gullible, thinking everyone well-meaning — and thus do secular Westerners believe that, well, of course these new arrivals will embrace secular “values.”

And that’s the ideological chauvinism lurking in the hearts of the oh-so open-minded, who once warned of “ethnocentrism.” But why would others adopt “secular Western ‘values,’” including confusion over marriage, sex and right and wrong (Truth) itself? Because they’re so self-evidently true?

Realize that some people have an alien sense of virtue (Western leftists are a good example). Some really do believe that slaughtering innocents in Allah’s name is good — that burning people alive, baking them in ovens, drowning them in cages and feeding children into a dough kneader — wins you Paradise.

Remember, our weakness lies in our diversity.

    “We are all basically the same.”

    I can’t tell you how often I have heard this rubbish over the decades. Generally, when some idiot spouts this nonsense, I ask them in what other countries they have lived. And if they keep speaking the same drivel I start listing out differences of cultures around the world.

    The most extreme case of this type of thinking is of the internationalist Marxist/Progressive. They see all people through an economic model and have wet dreams about making humanity fit the model by crushing all religious, cultural and sexual differences. Then everyone will be the same; poor, powerless and stupid. i.e drones. Except the vanguard of course.

      “We are all basically the same” is what the “nice” people believe. It saves them from discriminating. It saves them from choosing between the bad, better, and best. I mean, with all due respect, how else can you look at a freakish queer “pride” parade that features multi-colored perversity and maintain any kind of warm-fuzzes about the idea of “celebrating diversity.”

      But if you click your ruby slippers together and think real hard, you can blur the image and kinda-sorta glimpse something less obnoxious.

      There are so many facets to this, good and bad. Equality under the law? You bet. A deep equality of “We are all God’s children?” You bet. But the demand that any material inequality is somebody else’s fault, and not the fault of personal behavior (including culture) or sheer luck is to insert craziness into everything you do.

      But “nice” people, of course, never “blame the victim.” In reality, a whole lot of moochers need a swift kick in the ass…for their good and our own. And that really defines the Brave New World we are moving into. We are moving to an era where the unproductive people are gaining more political power than the productive people.

      Granted, big business and Big Government can always find a way round these things. The pitchfork crowd is (so far) easily rope-a-doped, their anger steered toward convenient targets. (And, yes, conservatives and Christians, you should see yourselves in this Trumpian mirror.)

      And so, again, this is leading us to the truly split nature of our society. As more and more people degrade themselves in a homogenized “democracy,” those who know how to make a buck will make a lot of bucks while the plebs get their minimal handouts and are kept in minimum-wage jobs (or no jobs), as a way to keep the rabble quiet and at least minimally useful. Their minimal jobs will at least allow them to buy the trinkets (iPhones, etc.) that the Morlocks will keep producing for the Eloi.

    One more of the lines of George W. Bush that drove me crazy, (paraphrased) all people in this world want the same thing. Sorry George, but no they don’t. (The worst one, for me, being “Compassionate Conservative.”)

      He also pulled that crap of walking into a mosque without shoes & selling us this “religion of peace” BS.
      I’m relieved that FDR wasn’t compelled to employ eqivalent suck-up tactics with the German vermacht.

    There have been some moderate Muslims in America who ended up committing honor killings and similar crimes.
