This is a peculiar and disturbing story about a young Slovakian woman who was lured home from Finland and arrested. Her crime was to urinate on a Koran and then burn it while she was in Finland. She may face up to six years in a Slovakian prison for her act.
I was surprised to hear about this, because I thought Slovakia was as “Islamophobic” as the Czech Republic. Such does not seem to be the case.
NOTE: one of the embedded videos contains shots of the young lady peeing on the Koran. It’s vulgar, but not really racy; however, some readers may wish to skip it (or have their children skip it), so it’s been placed below the fold.
Many thanks to Xanthippa for the translation, and to Vlad for the subtitling:
VIDEOS: Slovak government tricks model into returning, and arrests with “no-knock” SWAT team for burning a koran in Finland.
This is a story of the new totalitarian fascism sweeping Europe today, and may well be a prelude to life in the West, including in Canada soon if M103 becomes bill 103.
The first video shows a Slovakian model all of 24 years old, who made a video for Facebook, which while lacking in good taste, was definitely not illegal in Western democracies, and certainly did not deserve the treatment which followed.
In it, she urinated on and then burned a koran. On the snow, in Finland, and no one was harmed and no property was damaged except her own copy of the koran.
First, let’s look at the news footage of some of the arrest:
According to our source close to the family, she was contacted by the Slovak government shortly after she made the video.
She then left Finland, where she had been working as a model for five years, and rushed back to Slovakia to speak with authorities who had told her she had better come home to discuss this.
That night, a SWAT team broke into her family home and arrested her and took her to jail.
Since then, people across Slovakia and even the Czech Republic have been burning korans in sympathy with the young girl and have told the Slovak authorities they will not stop until she is released.
Below is an ex-Muslim woman who eloquently explains her reasons for supporting her koran burning from the Czech Republic.
It should be noted that the Czech Republic very recently held a trial of someone else charged with burning a koran, and the court found the accused not guilty, and that burning a koran in the Czech Republic is not a crime.
Here is a link to an article that contains a number of videos of people burning korans all across the Czech Republic and Slovakia, vowing to keep doing so until Adriana Melekova who goes by the name of “Sheila”, is released from custody.
Below, the video that seems to be at the source of this storm. Burning a koran and urinating on it in the snow. This video IS in bad taste. But it contains no violence and extremely little nudity, most of which was painstakingly covered by the subtitler.
People close to the family have informed us that Sheila is a card-carrying member of a Nationalist party in Slovakia.
Many fear that her arrest is a test case, and her conviction will allow the authorities to go after actual sitting members of Parliament of the same party.
