Day 27. 81 pages, 36,717 words.
One year ago (Saturday), Turku Finland was the unhappy site of a criminal assault, a terrorist attack resulting in the deaths of two women. The following is a public service announcement regarding this tragic event.
Yes, this attack was the work of a rejected and radicalised asylum seeker from Morocco and he was connected to ISIS. It was classified as a terror attack, Finland’s first. He had also previously committed crimes in Germany before coming to Finland. It’s all on the Wikipedia page. I don’t use his name because he is a craven, murderous piece of shit and I absolutely do not care what his name is or what his tale of woe might have been. He is a killer and I’m glad he’s now in prison.
This public service announcement is to salute the actions of the police, who operated admirably and brought the suspect down efficiently and with a minimum of force. It’s an expression of absolute respect for Hassan Zubier, British (by way of Sweden) visitor who sacrificed his health and mobility to save others (he was badly injured, but survived; he has a fundraising site for support). The awards and medals he received from numerous nations are only a small token for the bravery he showed. I simply cannot satisfactorily convey my admiration.
For those of you who are still asking why “the Muslim community” doesn’t stand up against these sorts of attacks, this is also a public service announcement to remind you that Hasan Alazawii was also injured in the attempt to prevent others from coming to harm, and I salute him too, from the bottom of my heart.
“Why? Because I am one of Us. How? Because You are a part of me. Society in a nutshell.”
There was a march “against terrorism” over the weekend (Zubier was there, on the anti-Nazi side). Representatives of the PerusSuomalaiset were baffled as to how a march for such an obviously noble goal could be labelled as a “Nazi march” by others who decided to mourn the event without doing the Nazi salute.
In other news, representatives of PerusSuomalaiset are dangerously brain-damaged lunatics.
This is a public service announcement for the benefit of this intellectually challenged Aryan fuckwit and anyone who thinks she’s even remotely relevant. If your slogan is “papers, please”…
And it was…
May the dead rest in peace. May their loved ones mourn. May the heroes of that day get their rewards and the cowardly murderer continue his punishment. And may everyone else calm the fuck down.
We respect the victims and helpers by working to improve safety, understanding between cultures, and the integration of immigrants every day together with other authorities and the civic society.
The results are measured in many ways, not just by this one incident in the past, which is why we should not give it the status of a symbol or landmark.
– Minne Arve, Mayor of Turku
It’s sad that the Nordic Resistance Movement is using this day to spread fake news, to try to destroy our way of living, our democracy, using this day to dance on the graves of the victims who died. I think it’s despicable. We have to fight them. We have to fight them everywhere. We have to fight the darkness in the world.
– Hassan Zubier
