Europe is known for its soccer fan clubs who are widely called “soccer hooligans.” These call themselves the GnuHonnters, a take on the English term “new hunters.”
Their motto is: “Comrades in spirit. Many colors, but one entity.” It refers to the fact that they support different soccer clubs. Now they are united under the banner “hooligans against [Islamic] Salafists” (HoGeSa) and they are fed up with the Muslim supremacy in Europe so this Sunday they decided to unite forces and demonstrate in Cologne Germany. Clashes soon erupted between police forces and HoGeSa protesters were at least 13 officers were injured, the German news agency DPA reported.
Earlier this month, Kurds in Germany clashed with radical Muslims in the northern city of Hamburg and elsewhere in street clashes fueled by the conflict involving the jihadist groupIslamic State in northern Iraq and Syria.
Great Britain has also taken to the Streets to Protest Islamization of their Country. Europe has finally woken up!
Europe is different from the U.S. in which political activism either takes on extremist left wing or ultra conservative right wing forms. The media on the left says that these groups end up uniting with neo-Nazis and fascists while others say that the German media is demonizing the movement with the usual “Nazi” slur.
Despite the ridicule, soccer clubs have held meetings in at least three other cities, Monchengladbach, Hannover and Mannheim, to promote unity in the fight against theIslamification of Germany.
And in Great Britain, a popular movement (the EDL) against Islam is growing consisting largely of young men who demonstrate against Islam. The British media has often claimed that the EDL grew out of the “soccer hooligan” sub-culture. While many who participate in EDL demonstrations are right-wingers, it is otherwise apolitical. EDL encourages a wide spectrum of British citizens to become active in the singular cause of halting Islamic immigration and the Islamification of British cities.
And in Italy this October, thousands of Italians gathered in Milan to demonstrate against Islamic Supremacy:
Fighting against Muslim supremacy has become a European-wide phenomenon, something Shoebat.com has predicted long ago and it will grow with the growth of Islamism. Eventually life for Islamists in Europe will become uncomfortable which plays into the liberal media’s arguments falsely painting conservatives on equal par with Islamists.
But despite the media ridicule, in Western Europe, jointly organized protests against “Islamic supremacy” constitute the main focus of European party political activities. The alliance “Cities against Islamization” is an example of transnational cooperation comprising initiatives from Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, the Netherlands, and England.
In Germany, “Hooligans gegen Salafisten” appears to be a growing broad spectrum anti-Islamification movement.
Hooligan culture is on the rise again in Germany. Fan commissioners from Aachen, Braunschweig, Dortmund, Düsseldorf and Frankfurt report that hooligans who were active as long ago as the 1990s are once again rising and are on the increase in what the media portrays as “right-wing motivated behavior”.
On Twitter, users tweeting under the #hogesa tag have written, “This movement must never rest until we are finally in charge of our own country again.” One woman wrote, “Germany is finally waking up,” while another tweet included a German flag bearing the words, “We don’t want a [Muslim] theocracy.”
Rainer Wendt, chair of the German Police Union, claims that the hooligan groups and the right-wing scene more generally are merely exploiting the topic of Salafism in Germany in order to mobilize their sympathizers and attract new supporters. Wendt adds that such groups’ frequent assertion that the German state is failing in its fight against Islamists is “nonsense,” saying, “What these people don’t accept is that we’re using legal means to address the matter rather than crowbars.”
