    What's Happening

    Migrant News: Sweden planning mass...More...

    Immigrant Mobs Declare War on Europe


    Sweden: The Best Example of Lunacy in Europe. It is the government's duty to stop it but their Socialist ideology is unable to do so, as in socialist USSR for seventy years, until the system collapses under the weight of its own evil ideology, and the Muslim conquerors. I place the blame on Europe's demise squarely on the source: Universities that indoctrinate the population with a Socialist mentality and denial of the existence of absolute truth and God. The Bible warns us but we don't read it so how do we know? "There is a way that seems right in the mind of man, but the end thereof is destruction." Proverbs 14:12 Since there is no God, goes the line, all religions are the same. Since the press has denounced and persecuted Christianity and made Islam appear as the victim of western persecution, the people are told to take Islam under their protection. A big mistake, and now the chickens are coming home to roost and the first victims are the young girls who must bear the first blows as rape statistics go through the roof. This is what Socialism brings wherever it raises its ugly head.




    Angela Merkel is from East Germany which was Socialist/Communist. Socialists do not think there is one truth, and that gives all the right to do whatever they feel like. Obama snubs the Constitution which was based on Christian truths, and America prospered while Muslim countries resorted to piracy or raiding to make a living. That begins to break society apart over the long term. Want to know what life is like under Socialism or Islam? Ask someone who has lived under these regimes. Finland and the rest of Scandinavia started out with Social Democracy, but too much of a "good thing" is proving to be a disaster, and not just in Scandinavia. It is ironic as Soviet style Socialism should have given us a clue that it can and does develop into a monster, a state control freak. Scandinavian Socialism controls the results of production instead of the means of production as in USSR. But both control, more or les, free speech. You can't go around calling terrorists what they are: Muslims. You'll go to prison. You can't say the immigration system is broken and there are too many Muslim and many of them are violent. You'll go to prison - for violating the sanctity of a religion. Socialism will destroy you freedoms in exchange for taking care of you. Want to make that deal? Then vote for Sanders if you are in America. Otherwise, if you want to undo the damage done by Socialist/Islam sympathizer Obama, vote for Trump.

    What is happening in Germany is the fault of current Socialist ideology deception, (as distinct from Social Democracy, which is a mild form) a dangerous ideology that is all over Europe. It is dangerous because it has begun a campaign of censorship against criticizing Islam and mass immigration with news blackouts (a common thing in USSR) which are destroying Europe by false, misleading information by the government sanctioned media. A Socialist (many of whom are communists hiding behind Socialism) will stubbornly cling to an ideology based on erroneous beliefs even if it ruins the country and Russia is a good example. Young people have no idea of its dangers so they fall for the false promises that only Socialism can produce the ideal society, as did many in Finland in 1918. It almost ruined Finland by making it a poor Eastern block Socialist country, but the "Capitalists" won the three month War of Independence. There is good and bad in Socialism, but the bad overshadows the good by allowing only one point of view. Only Capitalism, free enterprise can produce wealth, and it is leaving Europe due to government policies against their interests, not the least of which is high taxation. With the millions of unemployed Muslims allowed in without proper checks, it may well be the end of European culture. Angela Merkel is now public enemy number one in Germany.

    The American people voted the devil into the White House TWICE. Protected by the media, Obama is doing whatever he likes, dismantling America as we know it. They are starting to show signs of discernment now with what happened in Iowa. George Norry (Coast to Coast) mentioned that Obama doesn't have an evil bone in his body. I counted quite a few boners that are against the interests of the people such as indoctrinating school children into Islam, and possibly radicalizing them young. He is displaying every sign of being a closet Muslim and hating the American way of life. That is contrary to the Constitution and how come he isn't impeached? Thumbing your nose at the Constitution in my books is going against the people. I have been following him closely for several years and he is talking to the Muslim Brotherhood that is a front for terrorist organizations, and this president is telling his Arab Muslim brothers that he is one of them. We have a fox in the henhouse!

    Censorship Breeds Ignorance

    Communist States are ruled by political correctness, in other words government sanctioned "truth." Just look at the news in America as a example of Media censorship that spews Socialist government doctrine for example. South Carolina Primary was a fraud, and the little sleezbag private email eraser and corruption queen criminal Hillary got most of the media exposure. Why would the media support a criminal? That by the way is not democracy; its Fascism. What happens if all the channels of communicating with the people are blocked by those controlling the information channels, in this case the left, allowing only one politically correct opinion to be broadcast? We're not quite there, yet. But that is the trend. It is just as bad as a Socialist state where opinion makers have no competition. That is Trump's refrain: the media is dishonest. That is how Socialism is. I'm happy to see that many Americans can see through it. The government of Finland is inching closer to total censorship daily, by for example implementing "approved" censorship of UN origin. You see, 57 Muslim countries want a news blackout on what Islam is trying to do: take over Europe. Therefore, it is in their interests to keep the people ignorant of true Islam, which demands that every Muslim work toward the destruction of all other forms of religion and government. Accordingly, Finnish government is slapping thousands of Euro fines on anyone daring to challenge the government position on Islam. Just as bad are the bribes accepted by journalists from wealthy Arab countries (with unlimited funds to buy anything or anyone) to push their harmful agendas. That is one reason the world is against Israel, because of their biased Palestinian view on the situation in Israel. Israel Cooperated with many demands such as pulling out of Gaza, after which the area was used to rain bombs on them, and Bernie Sanders (a Communist) is spreading false information (that's what Communists do) that Israel killed 10,000 Palestinians during Hamas attack on Israel. Now the world wants a repeat of that, the pull out of large areas captured when they were foolishly attacked by those so-called Palestinians and their Arab partners. Israel can't be beaten, ever. Many of them abandoned their homes in fear or when they were asked to by their own people, so they could go in and exterminate the Jews. The world got only one side of that scenario. Is it fair to form your opinion on one side only; you who would kick and scream if that was done to you. Israel wants to live in peace with their neighbors, but they don't want peace.

    The Internet was a place where we could escape to and express our views. Now that too is disappearing as leftist, liberal, Gay and Lesbian and other interest groups are on the committees that run for example Twitter and Facebook are beginning to censor all but politically correct views. We are going the wrong way folks. Where can we get real news today? This is one place for sure, but don't censor yourself or others because we need to keep alive the freedom to speak our minds and stop those who would destroy that right by being the gate-keepers of ideas or calling anyone who disagrees a fascist and bigot. If you use those and similar terms, stop it. Censorship is an insult to our intelligence and freedom.

    What I am about to say is of paramount importance to the European people who have been lied to in many ways. But one of the biggest ones is that we caused all the problems for the Arab people. That is what their leaders are telling them, and our leaders are believing it, and it is one of the reasons many of them want to get even with us. Let me make it perfectly clear: we did not cause their problems. They did with their religion and their violence among themselves, tribal warfare, Sunni against Shiah, and it is still going on. It is tribalism and they need to become civilized before they can develope as a people and thus become prosperous. They are an idle people in many ways and the devil can operate through those who are not busy in constructive things such as education of all - females included.

    It will never end unless they decide to change, and reject their hatred and violence. Now they are wrecking parts of Europe. We caused our own problems by believing a lie - that we caused their problems so we must fix it. We are our own worst enemies. While we were busy doing evil to ourselves, we didn't have time to do it to others. Look at the numbers - they don't lie. That's what I like about math. We Finns killed off our next generation to the tune of 800,000 since 1952 - killed for convenience. If anything, we should feel guilty for that, not for the poverty of the Arab people, whose governments are rich with oil but will not help their own people, even the poor Syrians who had to flee to Europe! No Europe, you don't have to pay back anyone. Now do the right thing and don't ruin your country like France. Unfortunately nobody speaks up until it affects them.





    The common denominator of all evil repressive systems such as the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany is censorship. Democracy is freedom. Freedom is free speech. Socialism is censorship. Sensorship is slavery. Slavery is what Satan wants for us, but Jesus came to set the captives free. We have turned our backs on that and now we will taste the fruit of our folly. Sweden is the most secular country in Europe, and the least free. They are slaves of themselves! When Social Democracy begins to erode freedom, it ceases to be working for the people. It begins to work counter to their best interests. I call that "Socialism" of the type that has already supposed to have died a natural death. In fact, if you get rid of censorship it ceases to be repressive. Self censorship is even worse - it not only condones governments that think they know better than the people, but they limit knowledge among themselves. "Let's all bury our heads in the sand and the first one the lifts it gets blown away." But now we are that enemy - of ourselves and the source is, as in the Soviet Union, that same "spirit" which I call the devil because it has his stamp on it and is recognizable as his work. It is designed to destroy us as always, but it can't if we don't let it.

    It must be the devil's work; now most people are so politically correct, that if you say mass immigration is destroying Europe, which is true, are opposed to gay marriage or anything the government wants us to believe and implement, you are almost bad as Hitler. It is an intolerant attitude by people accusing others of intolerance, and that is the main enemy of the people today, and it is destroying us. If you are one of these, you are destroying your country by preventing the free flow and clash of ideas. You must have a clash of ideas or you are a closed society like in the Middle East. Nothing should be off the table and anyone who says they are offended, too bad, we can help them with councelling, not by allowing them to sue, as in the United States now. The gay agenda has gone too far and must be reigned in. Give them an inch and they'll take a mile. I want to give them a meter, or a square meter. We don't want to persecute them but now they are persecuting Christians, so I'm saying, stop right there. You get nothing more, and Christians can make cakes for anyone they want without being sued. That's nonsense. We have religious freedom and that is more important than a cake. Censorship is wrong, it stops progress and the result is that the country slowly dies, being cut off from life giving freedom of expression and freedom of conscience. People who censor others in this way are the enemy within. What's worse than government censorship is therefore the intolerance of contrary ideas, the censorship of the people. It is one step away from taking people with conservative ideas and sending them to Siberia or making a list like the left did in 1945 - that were to be shot. It's leftist ideas, the same ones that caused the civil war in 1917-18 and the attempted coup after WWII with its long genocide list. That genocide leftist list has been found in Finland and you can see an example in my post war pages. Right, I just wanted you to know that I don't hate anyone but I don't want anyone to take my freedoms away either. That is where I will put up fight.

    Before any process of healing our out of control society can begin we must start listening to others, listening to me or anyone else instead of just turning us off. Censorship is turning off the mind and governments do it to control us so we don't have to self inflict it on ourselves. I want you to open your mind now and if you use those kinds of tactics to silence me, you may as well leave now, but you are welcome to stay and listen to what I have to say.

    Angela Merkel on mass immigration: it is therapy for Germans She announced the open doors to any and all Muslims with intent to harm the German people, who in her twisted socialist mind thinks they need to be punished for what their grandfathers did. It is very similar to what the socialist President Halonen stated after 9/11 about Finns needing to pay back to Muslims what they had done to them.

    I am just reporting what is going on factually because the media refuses. They are all graduated from the same dumb teaching in universities where learning to think has been replaced by teaching what to think. They can't report critically properly anymore about subjects that the people need to know. They don't know how to ask the right questions to get the truth. Former President Halonen basically blamed the victims for 9/11. It is crazy Socialist logic which is loose in the EU today and is responsible for what is happening there today. Most of the illogical actions by governments are from these Disneyland minds. It's just plain stupidity run amuck - ignorance gone to seed. They are dismantling Europe. This is why the new Socialist ideology, which has outlived its usefulness decades ago is now the enemy of the European and American people. What is worse than these kinds of Socialists is a terrorist sympathizer Socialist like Obama who dropped supplies to ISIS and we can see the weapons on TV. He lies about everything to advance his Muslim religion and does whatever he pleases like the dictator he is.

    Who knows what the real Islam is, the world's leaders or ISIS? Who has studied Islam and got right into what Muhammad himself did? Not the average Muslim. It's ISIS because they came from mostly the Muslim community and were taught in Mosques. We've been told ISIS is not the real Islam. Here is the real Islam.


    The Future of Money



    You can make a good living with a new Cryptocurrency that is overtaking the leader, Bitcoin, and you need to know about it now. The Future of Money
    Our team is located in Finland. Don't pass up this opportunity like I almost did except for my persistent friend. I've doubled my money in two months and the curve is exponential.




    I'm sorry if you came here expecting liberal political correctness, which is wishful thinking which overshadows reality. This is about truth and the damage that recent liberal-socialist ideology is doing in Europe and the world. They act as if they don't know anything except some ideology they picked up in their "education." But I am confident that truth is more powerful than lies which are just political correctness. Politics and education should be separate and professors should keep their political opinions out of the classroom. We have truth on one side represented by Christ's teachings against political correctness represented by Neo-Socialist ideology. Why is it that smart people do stupid things? Germans were smart. Russians were smart, and now Europeans are smart. But add socialist ideology into those brains and they become stupid. Kids come out of universities with a major in science and a minor in stupidity and it really shows when there is a crisis such as there is in Europe right now. It's much like the Soiviet Union all over again. Political correctness is about not hurting anyone's feelings. Truth always steps on someone's toes, but are we to create a society where nobody steps on anyone's toes and if you do you will be fined, say, € 2000 just for an example - which is close to reality in Finland where government and church officials have been fined by Communistic, Fascist ideas that they call "socialism." There are socialists that love the truth but they are not in power. That is what is happening in EU thanks to UN and 56 Muslim countries and Obama, who want to criminalize discussion about Islam. They say it "disturbs the sanctity" of religion, meaning it is inside a fortress guarded by huge fines. That, to put it in the vernacular, is BS, and dangerous because, well, what are they hiding; what are they guarding? Don't you think you should know? What truths about Islam offend? Let's enumerate them. Just an example: what will your response be when they tell you that a 9 year old girl is an adult and should be treated as one? Or they can beat their wives because it's their religion? There is a major clash of civilizations here, and the people must know exactly what it means, not some fairy tale which I have been hearing on all regular media. From my point of view knowledge is everything. Denial is disaster..

    They are on the internet so I don't have to go there on this page because it is out the scope of our discussion about the future of Finland in EU. Darn right you should know. But if you knew the truth, it would set you free and you would know why Muslims are pouring into Europe and their ultimate goal of world conquest for Islam which they are participants. That is the cold hard truth and we are stuck in our western "do good" beliefs - which are very good - but not always and in every case. Sometimes this belief blocks out all contrary facts, because unfortunately for us we have been enculturated, brainwashed to believe lies, by media and universities, and therein lies our cognitive problem.

    How is it that the Middle East is in constant turmoil, and if not it is due to a ruthless dictator? How is it that America prospered but has been loosing that knowledge and is now massively in debt, $19 Trillion to be exact? The simple reasons for these questions is - knowledge. How is it that the Soviet Union collapsed despite some of the smartest people in the world? Knowledge and work ethic. You either have the correct knowledge and desire to implement it or you are on the road to ruin. You tell me: do we have the right knowledge? Do our actions show it and are we becoming more or less prosperous? Is your money going further or shorter? Can you buy a house without sending the wife into the work force instead of nurturing the three or four children at home, or are they limiting families to one or two for financial reasons, which means destruction for the country?

    America, like Finland, started with the correct premise, which provided a strong foundational knowledge. This was based on Biblical principles. That is now politically incorrect. The Middle East was founded on Qur'anic principles, Arab work ethic and knowledge and they did not prosper like their cousins the Jews. That is their own fault, not ours, or the Jews. They don't accept any responsibility for their own condition, and have been successful in convincing the world that everything is someone else's fault. That and preoccupation in hating Israelis and not trying to make peace guarantees their condition and not even getting some land will cure that deep hate that goes back over a thousand years. A lot of animosity is just jealousy. Isaelis have tons and tons of Nobel prizes; the Arabs have a few; I can count them on my fingers. They are generally a progressive people though there are exceptions, as admitted by their own people, and a burden to every country. It has a lot to do with their culture and religion and you really have to understand it to see why. Idle hands is the devil's workshop.

    Everyone thought that the way to prosper is to go to where people are prospering like Europe, but if they bring their knowledge and fail to switch to a different mind set, they will not prosper but bring their host country down by being a bourses and rioting for Sharia Law etc. Political correctness points the finger at the west as the cause of their poverty, but in reality it is because they don't know how to prosper, the wrong principles, work ethic, and wrong knowledge in majority of cases. They have the wrong foundational principles. Let's stop blaming the wrong things for our financial struggles and their poverty and return to truth and the principles that prospered us.

    If the Founding Fathers were in the White House, what changes would they make? If those that drafted the Finnish Constitution were there now, they would not like what has been done. It all boils down to what each individual in a country believes and if that is based on a wrong ideology as taught in US universities today or the truth that the Founding Fathers laid down based on God's word. That is the simple truth but terribly unpolitically correct. Truth has nothing to do with any political party, but it quite rightly steps on liberal thinkers' tender toes. We should be doing what has worked before: finding truth and applying it! It's not rocket science; it's all about whether or not you have the heart to receive the truth or not. I, in my good conscience, cannot remain silent about truth, with the hope that I can convince you to do likewise.

    Liberals: The only interpretation of Islam is here from a lovely lady who decided to go with truth over lies.

    Maybe they need a Donald Trump type who is not afraid of the truth, to shake things up at least until things stabilize. Bans on discussing these sensitive topics as in Finland don't help. A healthy culture can stand discussing everything. A sick society delineates what can and can't be discussed, preventing progress. Muslim countries do that. Finland has taken that plunge. There is to be no discussion of immigration and Islam lest someone is offended, anyone except the Finnish people. It's OK if they are offended. Both need to be discussed from all angles: what negative results could there possibly be and ask "can we learn from other countries such as Sweden and France and avoid making their mistakes?" Another point: can we stand having Muslim ghettos where Finns are afraid to go and where they are attacked by roaming gangs? If not, should we be shipping most of them back when ISIS is defeated?
    Turkey, NATO, America - financing ISIS by buying their oil. Obama is dropping supplies to them! Hillary will too.
    Middle East, Russia, China, and US.

    The media is also to blame. Secular media are forming your opinions on everything, and a lot of it is false and supporting some agenda, usually liberal-socialist and it is ruining Europe and America. They avoid showing what needs to be shown, and saying what needs to be said. "My people perish for lack of knowledge." That is what the Bible warns. You can have lots of the wrong knowledge such as the Atheistic Socialism and Islam fed our kids in universities and public schools. Islamic Indoctrination in American Public Schools
    Oprah's Knowledge of Islam - If you know as much about Islam as Oprah, you need to some education.
    Muslim Jihadist speaks

    Haven't we learned anything from history? We need to know the long-term consequences of any government action regardless of what it is. How can we know what that is with regard to Muslim immigration if it is a taboo topic? See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, that seems to be the current philosophy. We have a growing Muslim population, a large percentage of which have radical ideas regarding changing our society, (Cultural Jihad) implementing Shariah Law, the restricted role and status of women in society, the doctrine that infidels/Jews as lower forms of life, even monkeys and pigs, and freedom of speech just for starters. How would you like it if the two cultures went head to head and they won, and we had to follow their rules? It's happening in Britain. It's a slow process but it is working for them and Shariah Law, a foreign legal system is operation in a sovereign country, and that is just the beginning. I'm not trying put anyone down, but at the same time you have to know because it will come knocking on your door one day. Will you give in and adopt Shariah Law? Do you know what it is? Do you know how it treats women? If not then you must find out. Isn't it better we know these things now rather than find out by experience later? I think so. There are two cultures in collision and our culture is losing because we are giving up. Our professors are not teaching what is happening because that would not be politically correct. We need to be scientific, not political, and state social conditions as they are. Isn't it sad - that is how it was in the Soviet Union. Is the huge increase in rapes and other incidents being reported or studied? Only by some Christian organizations such as cbn.com. So we are beginning to suffer the consequences. I would like to give you all that I know but that is considered not politically correct and I could be arrested in Finland like many others who have tried to tell the people truth. Socialist (the prevailing European ideology today) reality can't stand truth so we have to slip it in wherever we can.

    Is your knowledge of important subjects such as the Middle East, Islam, migrants, etc. from propaganda or fact? You owe it to yourself and your children to make sure it is from fact. Most of the "knowledge" of these subjects is from propaganda and biased reporting so you will support their, pro-immigration at any cost, anti-freedom of speech and the anti-Israeli agendas concocted by 56 Muslim countries in the UN and pushed on the world. We have nothing against true refugees coming with good intentions and Finns have in a collective memory of the ravages and losses of war of which we were innocent victims like them. But the reality of our present situation doesn't allow for much immigration because of the economy, unemployment, security issues - the immediate one being the protection of our girls and women who are afraid to go out now. Also ISIS now enters any country at will because of their false passport industry using stolen machines. Trump wants to stop Muslim immigration until the security issue is solved, which is reasonable considering the hundreds of terrorist attacks per year now in the United States. I believe that Obama wants these attacks to escalate so he can try to take all guns away from those who need them for protection and impose Martial Law and not have to step down as president. That is his deepest wish but he is so incompetent that I don't think he will pull it off. I am so disappointed in that sneaky lying sob guy who could have shown what a black man is capable of - perhaps even better things than his white predecessors. To me honesty is everything and he fails just like Hillary. Does the huge support for Hillary indicate that Americans no longer care about truth? It's a toss up which one is worse. He loves his job as a puppet so much. He has hinted jokingly that he wants to be dictator of America, that Congress cramps his style, but I don't take it as a joke. You don't joke about things like that if you love the Constitution and the American Way, and He means it. Then we might see some fireworks between the people and ISIS Obama is knowingly letting in.

    The Finnish language has already begun to be transformed toward English. It's scary. Finnish words are dropping like flies. Perhaps one day it will be like Gaelic in the British Isles due to tremendous pressure from foreign cultures like English and now Arabic. One day Arabic could become the national language of Europe based on present trends. If this is not a threat then I assume that Arabic and Islam are acceptable to replace the indigenous languages and cultures. We have a choice right now but in another twenty years that will end.

    The best we can do is help real refugees until we kick ISIS ass with conscripted refugee armies forming the spearhead supported by our boys and air cover, to help them take back their land so they can return. Then all the countries that were involved could go back to Syria and rebuild their country with funds from their oil - it's not rocket science. They must go back to a secular government, not one run by clerics. It's a win-win proposition. We maintain a peace-keeping army there paid by oil money. In WWII many poles and other foreigners fought for their land with the Aliies, so it makes sense we use them - give them the tools and put them to work instead of living off others and sitting back watching tv and eating pizzas and making many babies to collect more money, while their own people die back home. This is war time and the people being attacked are running away! That would be unthinkable fir a Finn. The problem is, we are treating refugees too well and there is no incentive. Cut off the cheques and put them in uniform, then and only then do they get paid. That is my opinion, but today I received an echo in my email showing that others are thinking the same thing:

      A plan for the refugees. All able bodied males between the ages of 18 to 50 will immediately be inducted into the US/Cdn army and sent to basic training. After basic, they will be loaded into aircraft and flown back to their home country and on arrival given their weapons and ammo and told to go reclaim their country and when they have accomplished that we will send their wives and children and any other countrymen and women back to them at no cost. They will be paid the same as our soldiers while fighting for their country and their dependent/s will receive the same benefits as our soldiers dependents. If they are not willing to do this then they and their families can find another country to take them. We should not have to send our military to fight for their country if they are not willing to fight for their own.



    In the final analysis, all we want is the truth and sometimes it isn't easy to articulate because we have been enculturated to think in a certain way about any mention of these sensitive areas. We are told it is racist to oppose allowing a large demographic shift. I think like a biologist studying population dynamics and I see a red flag. Nothing against immigrants, but I deal with math and science, not some political socialist ideology that ignores reality, and I want answers to the impending disaster, the cliff we are headed to. They don't even see the cliff so how can they do anything? The problem is they will see it too late.

    Who's "they?" Socialists. Finland is now full of this ideology and so is America. A Left Wing extremist is someone that calls a Christian, you know those people who landed at Plymouth Rock, "Right Wing Extremists." Most Universities have switched from teaching students how to think to teaching what to think. The result is that our universities have become assembly lines for cranking out little liberal socialists that all think alike. It's scary and it is ruining Europe and America. When Christian values that made America and Finland great have become dangerous, we have a serious problem. We need to go back to our roots and live the past 50 years over again and do it right this time and build the country that it was supposed to be, what the American and Finnish dream was before Socialists hijacked it. To be fair, socialism had its place; it took care of people, setting up the infrastructure. But then it kept growing and growing and now it has become a monster, and Europe is in mortal danger and something must be done immediately. But, socialist systems are notorious for letting things go until it's too late, and that is why I am sounding this warning. The founding Fathers too, who's motto was "In God We Trust" were extremists in their little socialist twisted minds, (America in particular) and they are infecting others to think the same way. Let me just say, don't fall for that kind of talk, nor that Islam is substantially the same as Christianity. These are two different gods and they can't be reconciled any more than light and darkness. I'm telling you the truth.

    Socialists (otherwise known as Liberals) are the same people who try to convince us that Islamic terrorism has nothing to do with the religion despite their screams of "Allah Akbar" as they behead innocent infidels and the evidence of their books. ISIS textbooks are the Hadith and Qur'an and they claim that their interpretation is the correct one. Who wins the war determines which is correct. So they are a sect of Islam. These Left Wing fanatics are the same people (modernized versions) who rose up against the state in Finland and tried to make Finland part of the new Soviet Union, but failed. The same people, except they got into the universities and infected our kids with their ideology. The kids went in Christians and came out socialists. So here we have a political ideology that protects evil and persecuted good and calls peaceful people extremists and dangerous just because they don't agree with their ideology. They believe that people must be controlled so that they accept their laws such as the one on freedom of speech to criticize Islam. That's exactly what was in the Soviet Union - people who disagreed were sent to mental institutions or Siberia. If they don't stop taking Finland (and Germany, France, Britain...) then it will lead to civil war, back to 1918 to determine the future of Finland.

    This is neither a race nor a religion issue, and not to be mistaken as such, but partly an ideological one. Islam should be separated into two parts: religion and ideology. When a person stays in the religious part and ignores the ideological part, you have a peaceful Muslim, and most are. I'm leaving links here so you can investigate it further if you want. Racism and other choice names are just words used to scare people into complying with a certain position, but it is working. Nobody wants to be suspected of such a thing, like being suspected of being a witch in the Middle Ages. We need to grow out of such nonsense. The news bombards the people daily about how bad people are who want to save their country. If you say anything about a religion, even if it has something awful embedded in it, such as those from the Middle East, you are a racist. So religion is now a race, revealing who the real racists are. So how can we move forward under such taboos by people totally ignorant of the subject? It is actually a political issue, not of religion or race, one that involves colonization by foreign elements and changing an existing system for another, like a revolution we saw in Russia and many other countries, except it is done with the movement of people initially, followed by action initiated by radicals who push for installing Islamic law as a parallel system within a system as in Britain and when possible to the rest of the country. About 25 percent of Muslims have radical views and can be radicalized, according to Brigitte Gabriel of Act for America. That is scary when you think that in 2015 over 19,000 Muslim refugees entered Finland and which cost the people about $19,000 per year to maintain with food, clothing and housing. I thought the people were already over taxed but now I can see Finns thinking about getting out to greener pastures in the future as unemployment and taxes continue to grow. The list of Christian countries that became Muslim is long, so never think it can't happen in Europe. This is the sad future of Europe people don't consider, and it's time to do so. Specifically, do we want to become Muslim. Laws must be passed to prevent establishment of Shariah Law. This is a priority issue.

    It is nice to put on a tolerant, politically correct face to the world, (and it has its place) but when its negative effects start to be felt by the people in increased unreported (hushed) crime stats, who are starting to live in fear themselves like people in the Middle East, then you have to take a second long look at your assumptions and move forward and do the right thing.

    Why mention immigration at all? Is there a problem? There is nothing wrong with a little immigration. But we have a problem if it gets out of hand, and here's why. Finland, like most European countries has a declining population, by roughly 20% or more per generation. That is not sustainable. Every family must have an average of three children to reverse this trend and then an average of 2.1 per family to maintain equilibrium. It is a critical issue of survival. A country trying to prop up its population with ones that procreate at a rate double or more and will not integrate (due to religious and political ideology) simply is not sustainable to a country that wants to maintain its culture, language, religion and all those things that make that country what it is. We aren't even trying to integrate these people. In Canada they are building rent assisted apartments that are Muslims only, (while Canadians are denied entry) and large areas of Malmö, London and Paris are Muslim only ghettos where outsiders fear to go. The politicians are talking integration while doing the opposite. A little math will show you that the Finnish population will disappear in time and the new rapidly reproducing population that will not integrate will take over. They will build a culture within a culture, which is not integration which is adopting the ways and complying with laws of the land. That is self imposed genocide, choosing to let the country die an unnecessary death. The scientific data proves my point.

    Here are the statistics for Europe. Birth Rates Here's my suggestion. Come up with a percentage that the people can live with, and do that by referendum. Base your immigration quota on what the people want, not with what the UN or anyone else wants. Why? Because we don't want to have a mass exit of Finns to America or Canada on top of everything else. Learn from the mistakes of others, such as Sweden, Britain and France rather than ourselves. Encourage unwanted children to come to term and be adopted. I remember a speech by Mother Teresa, who asked for babies that nobody wanted, while everyone but Hillary Clinton and her husband applauded. They just sat there with folded arms. Restricting abortions to rape and incest has been suggested. That will partly make up for years of killing our unborn children, around 60 million in America, (3700 per day, a twin towers every day) future doctors and skilled workers, about 800,000 since 1952 in Finland which would make Finland a country of 5.2 million to over 6 or 7 million people and no labor shortage. That is the real reason we need immigration. But it must stop, and we must educate girls about their role in survival of Finland that they can literally make or break the nation, and finally that abortion is not a good choice for their own peace of mind the rest of their lives. Millions grieve for their deceased children because of an ideology pushed on them, mostly by the evil body part sales people called Planned Parenthod. There's no planning in getting pregnant and destroying your baby whereby a saline solution is injected into the amniotic fluid and the baby is scalded to death squirming and fighting for his or her life. It's brutal, inhumane and it is killing. You have to be pretty emotionless (like the pathological liar Hillary) for killing your child not to impact you forever. 60 million babies in the United States were simply barbarically killed and thrown away. We have no choice in the matter. By voting for the pro choice agenda, that puts blood on your hands; you are a killer. You can't get off that easy when you have to face the creator at the end of your life. Now that is the most unpolitically correct but true thing I have ever put in print but I know, and you know, it is true. These things will save Finland, otherwise we can fold up right now.

    Uralic People

    The Uralic Family of languages is comprised of two branches: 1) Finno-Ugric, and 2) Samoyedic. The Baltic Finnish/Karelian and Estonian (Finnic), Hungarian (Ugric) and Saami ("saw-me") people belong to this distinct group of linguistically related people. Uralic people are by definition indigenous people of the northern regions between the Urals and Norway. Finns are not some people who just wandered into Finland a thousand years ago from somewhere around Mongolia, as some historians want us to believe. Of course there have been waves of migration from the South and East over millennia. Finns are just as indigenous as Saami ("Lapps"). Ancient Finno-Ugric people even hunted in Central Europe at least during periods of glaciation. If this is the case, assimilation of these northern tribes has been going on for over ten thousand years. The process has been so gradual that their language has been preserved though genetically Finns are to a great extent European. These are fundamentally shy people, who have started to break out. Eastern Finns, the Karelians, my ancestry, are more fun-loving in the sense that they are a little less inhibited socially. Many of their homes are in wilderness all the way east to Lake Onega and North to the White Sea. The people have borne the brunt of Russian attacks through the ages and have become very good woodsmen, especially highly skilled in hunting and fishing, and familiarity with the terrain. Their woodsman ship came in handy during the war. The Finno-Ugric language in Europe has died out thousands of years ago, and thus there are no pockets of the language south of Norway and Sweden. The evidence for their European domicile during the last glaciation comes from Mitochondrial DNA. Modern research techniques are rewriting history in many cases. Finns are from Finland and their linguistic relatives are spread out to the east. They did not just wander in from somewhere.

    As for the reliability of the information contained here, of course there may be some outdated material as some sources are very old. One of the greatest values in historical study is that the further back we look, the further forward we are able to see. The more cultures and religions we understand, the better we can manage our own cultures and religions, or what we believe to be true. Too little knowledge about important subjects is a dangerous thing, and here I try to open up your desire to know more about certain subjects that are timely and urgent so you can decide for yourself, while at the same time giving my own honest opinion. At the same time, we hope to discard some of the old assumptions we cling to passionately, which may be false such as the origin of the Finnish people.

    Finns are indeed indigenous people not only of Northern Europe but vast areas from central Europe to the Ob river in the east. This is the story of a people who have adapted to a difficult life in the north, with periods of plenty punctuated by periods of famine and hardships. The result is a noble, gracious, tenacious people with a desire to be forever free, not bowing down to anyone and building a culture from a rich heritage of mythology, skilled craftsmanship, heroic actions against invaders - finally resulting in nationhood. Finns are stubbornly independent and cannot be subjugated. The Czars knew that and left them alone, not totally swallowing them into mother Russia when Sweden (1150-1809) lost control of Finland to Russian forces in 1809. They became a valued associate, called a Grand Duchy, rather than a slave. That is, until towards the end of the 19th Century Russian desire to subjugate the Finns could no longer be suppressed. The repressive Russification years began. Events leading up to independence.

    Crazy ideas about the origin of Finns have existed for hundreds of years. Some believe that until a thousand years ago, Finland was occupied only by Saami and that Finns migrated from the east and settled there, even as late as the first millennium. This theory has been disproven and now we know that ancestors of Finns have been there and also over a large area much longer, as the agreement between DNA, archeology and linguistic theory has shown. Two Theories Their traditional lands include everything between Lake Onega and Norway. The Russian government begs to differ; they want their people to believe this all was old Russian lands, justifying their annexation. Two criminals, Hitler and Stalin started WWII, dividing Europe between themselves. Both were hoping to acquire long coveted lands for their own expansion. Both had visions of controlling the world: one with Communism, the other Fascism. Unfortunately, like common criminals, one turned on the other, and the rest is history. After the war, Stalin got to share in dividing Europe, and Karelia became a victim, as did Poland and the Baltic States along with all of Eastern Europe. United States and Britain turned over to Stalin's executioners all Soviet citizens residing in the west, who had hoped to escape that beast. Finland too was obliged to turn over its Soviet prisoners. All people turned over to Stalin after the war had the same fate: execution or prison camps in Siberia, which amounted to the same thing.
    My parents had to leave Viipuri on November 30, 1939 like nearly 500,000 other Karelians in the path of the advancing Russians. My 17 year old mother was fortunate in catching a train out of the city with her family, transferring to a narrow gauge railway and finally arriving in Lahti. My father was still single and had joined the army in June of that year and fought in the Winter War.





    At this time Russia was a Fascist country, since they started the war with Germany. Finland had made peace with Russia in 1940 after destroying much of the Russian army but in the end losing Karelia. When Germany attacked Russia, and Finland was forced to fight again, now the Russians called Finland Fascist, and justified annexation as liberation from Fascism. Image that, when they were allied with Germany they weren't Fascist but now Finland was Fascist for ending up fighting a common enemy. Finland never was a Fascist nation, though it did cooperate with Hitler in fighting Russia, to try and take back Karelia. Finland did take it back until 1944 when Russia took it back again with all the American and Canadian weapons that were bought on credit, but never repaid. My father Antti found Heinz ketchup and other American food in the Russians backpacks.



    Russian people took over most of the eastern province of Karelia in 1944, thanks to Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin, who divided Europe amongst themselves, forgetting all about why they joined the war in the first place: to guarantee the sovereignty of Poland, which along with the Baltic States were abandoned. The cost of beating Hitler was much of Eastern Europe to the Third Agressor of WWII. Britain declared war on Germany, although the Soviets were also in on the attack on Poland from the east; we must remember this because Stalin was to get away with "murder" throughout the war, then demanded land for taking the brunt of Hitler's army. They quickly forgot all about these other countries when Stalin joined forces to beat Hitler, allowing Stalin a free hand with his neighbors. America and Britain, however, did not annex anything like the Soviets. Of course they must return these lands to their owners if they are to comply with agreements that were signed, such as the Atlantic Charter, we know that, but they don't want to know. Many Finns today believe that Karelia, the 1/10 of Finland that was annexed, must be returned, but how to achieve that has been problematic, and most politicians, except for a few descendants of Karelians, rather stay away from the subject. While they want Karelia returned, Finns want to be in good terms with Russians, showing that they are extremely patient. Today Russians are doing everything they can to justify their claim of "liberating" Karelia from "Fascism" including fabricating information.

    It has been suggested that Finns deserve what they got for cooperating with Hitler. While Finns cooperated with Hitler for a time, so did Stalin - which cancels out this argument. While Finns did it out of selfish reasons, to save their country, so did the Russians, to try and divide Europe with Hitler, a task in which they succeeded to achieve what Hitler failed - thanks to the Allies. However, the deception of the "Fascist" Finns is still alive and well. The Finns are in origin Finno-Ugric, not Germanic, so they cannot join in Hitler's plan for racial purity, nor do they have any interest in killing Jews or anyone else including Russians for Hitler's conquest. To be a Fascist country, Finland would need a dictator and of course there was none, because Finland was a free democratic country wishing only to protect itself from the neighbor, who had expansionist ambitions.

    Still today, the Soviet view permeates the world's history books about how Finland joined Hitler and how bad Finland was in resisting Stalin's expansion into Finland. This is absurd. Every Finn knows that Finland was succeeding in defending itself and this made the allies angry not because it was right or wrong, but because Stalin was their ally, which clouded their vision. The new residents of Karelia, Great Russians, have regular meetings to celebrate the theft (liberation) of Karelia from the "Fascist" Finns. Fascist has become the catch word now for anyone resisting Russian policies. The propaganda of the Soviet era is alive and well in Russia in the second millennium. This celebration of victory is done with the theme "the Fascist Finns must pay." That is the only justification for annexing Karelia the Russians can come up with. The guilt by association does not work in this case, as the Finns were attacked first and only wanted back what is theirs. Apparently Churchill did not like that and demanded Finland cease fighting in 1944. Finland did not capitulate but signed a treaty to end the war anyway, as Stalin was in a hurry to get to Berlin ahead of Americans.


    Finns Are Indigenous

    Finns are indigenous to Finland - it is their country that they have defended for over a thousand years. The term "indigenous" has come to mean a minority group within a larger group, but this may not be accurate in some cases. If that group should grow in numbers (due to agriculture for example) compared to another group, or mixing with Swedes, could it cease to be "indigenous", like the Finns for example? Some people believe that because they aren't living in tents. Who should we include as indigenous, and should we redefine the term? Is the term politicized to exclude certain groups because of statistical numbers, skin color or culture?

    Here is one definition of the term: "Indigenous peoples are people, communities, and nations who claim a historical continuity and cultural affinity with societies endemic to their original territories that developed prior to exposure to the larger connected civilization associated with Western culture." This definition is in relation to "Western Culture." When some people claim that Finns are fairly recent settlers, (around 1000 ce) they mean that Finns are not indigenous. Obviously this definition does not fit every situation either. If everyone came from somewhere at some time, when do we call someone "indigenous?" How long must they reside in the area? The Jews immigrated to Canaan "Israel" at the time of Abraham, around 2000 BC. It was given to Abraham and his tribe by God at that time. It was not given to his half brother, Ishmael, who was banished into the desert, and became associated with Arab nations. Israel was the little corner of the globe that belonged to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This included Jerusalem. Arabs beg to differ, but on what basis? We ask these questions to start the process of considering the subject of who is entitled morally to occupy and benefit from any piece of land on the earth. Should the basis for land ownership be based on ancestral, indigenous rights? Does anyone have the right to take it away and must it be returned? If Israel has to give up land, does Russia?

    Based on these facts, are Jews indigenous to Israel? Which group has rightful claim to Israel because they are indigenous? Are Arabs entitled to claim all the land in the area, and if so on what grounds? These are questions that need to be answered if the issue of land entitlement is to be solved. Americans, Canadians, Australians and Russians will have a hard time defending any position regarding who owns "stolen" land; they walked into other people's land and killed as many as they could, at took the land. If the Jews and Arabs are joined together by a mutual ancestor, why do they fight each other for land? What has this got to do with Finns? Finns have been fighting over land that belongs to them as well, and we believe we are entitled to all of Karelia, St. Petersburg area all the way to Lake Onega. That is our ancestral land. Finns will never stop trying to get it back one way or another. Perhaps this government doesn't want to touch the subject, but one day these liberal rulers will be history and another more patriotic leader will emerge and the subject will be reborn as it was in 1941. Patriotic Finnish rulers have become extinct, but we are still hoping. Independence is no longer a priority. We are hoping that if it is right for Palestinians to get "their" land back so they can work toward destroying Israel properly, then why not the Karelians who had their land taken twice: 1939 and 1944? This includes the Poles, Japanese, and anyone else that lost land to the Soviets by 1945.

    Although Saami consider themselves distinct from the majority culture, in fact the Finns and Saami have coexisted in and around present Finland since the last glaciation, although agriculture and the resulting fences have pushed Saami ever further north. Of course the majority Finnish population has seen genetic drift from neighbors but so have the Saami. So, we can consider the Finnish majority as not only indigenous to Finland but to Europe as well. Like Finns, the Saami are indigenous to large territories of Northern Europe and today's Northwestern Russia, both having inhabited the area ever since the last ice age, ending approximately 11,000 years ago, but perhaps already long before that as well as recent archeology has shown.

    The Canadian Indians are called "First Nations" so perhaps who got there first can claim the territory on historical grounds. Reclaiming it though can be difficult or impossible, but it can be done. Imagine if the UN approved the return of much of Russia to their former owners. The Eastern Slavs would have few places to go. We believe that some of the land taken and its resources should be restored to the owners so that these people (displaced Baltic Finns in Ingria, Karelia and Eastward to the bend in the Volga), can move forward in prosperity and culturally like the Slavic majority and perhaps even further. The only people that should be granted separate treatment within a nation are indigenous people.

    If Russia began a process of firstly listening to the grievances of these people, they would certainly receive a positive review from the international community. But what if the native Indians of North America were not the first to arrive? Could we still call them "First Nations?" It seems that Finns or someone closely related to them, may have arrived first. This confirms my own theory that Finns traveled in an East-West direction, following fish and game, during the last glaciation, even ending up in America. When the ancestors of present day Indians arrived in North America, these Europeans disappeared. Were they killed off, or absorbed, or a little of both? The native Americans are preventing proper analysis of archeology finds claiming all bones older than 5000 years as their dead ancestors. But the scientists protested that these skeletons were not their relatives.

    Kvenland The Russian government's position is that they are just as entitled to the land as the Finns, but actually they are squatters on Finnish land rather than the other way around. Russians claim the land on historical grounds, but their history goes back hundreds, while the Finno-Ugric history goes back thousands of years. That is why Russian historians don't want to recognize that Finns have lived in Finland and Karelia for thousands of years, preferring the theory that they arrived there at the same time as themselves, sometime around the 12th-13th Century. International precedents have been set, as in Canada, whereby it is acknowledged that indigenous people are entitled to their land and the resources on it, that they can develop and benefit from as they see fit. Russian governments in the past have simply raped the resources and left the people with nothing but a destroyed environment, while practicing genocide on the people. The goal was since around 1000 AD to reduce the indigenous population and increase the Russian, while confiscating their trading posts at various rivers throughout the North. In more recent times, in the last several hundred years, this was done by killing them or banishing the people to distant places and leaving them there to fend for themselves, sometimes in the middle of winter. Stalin practiced genocide on a grand scale, but also banishing people to distant camps only to die of hunger and over work.
    Nuclear testing in northern Russia has spread radioactive debris all through the north, and much of it has reached Finland and the rest of Scandinavia as well. The result has been a lot of birth defects especially in the northern populations. Canadians (the author's present domicile) are beginning to become more civilized with respect to the native population, at least on paper, but the follow-through has been slow and often default has been the outcome. However, on APTN, the native TV channel in Canada, we can see that the people have made great strides in many areas including restoring their native languages. This must happen in Russia too to the Finno-Ugric languages.

    It has been suggested that Finns are not European, but Asian. Anyone who watches hockey on TV will not agree. Finns have a distinct European, "Nordic" stamp, but with genetic links to the original people dating back to the Ice Ages. The writer's own theory of Finno-Ugric occupation of the North has solid research backing which opens the door to even greater possibilities in the quest for ancient origins of Finns. Certainly the Finnish population will have certain inclusions of Asian genetic influence - it would not be rational to conclude otherwise. The Huns occupied much of Europe at one time too, so Finland is not the only country to have eastern influence. However, to place the Finns as "Asians" or "Mongolians" (as some, such as H.G. Wells, like to do) has no basis in present scientific evidence. Mongolian influence, or genetic drift, has been active westward for millennia, all over Europe and Russia. H.G. Wells writes in his book "The Outline of History" that "To the Northwest the Finns, a Mongolian people, had long been established as far west as the Baltic." He probably never even met a Finn. This incorrect view has been propagated by earlier writers and repeated by many other historians. Some even placed the Finns incorrectly in the Ugric branch. There is no way that northern people of the world can not have any eastern elements, since genes flowed east and west along the ancient ice melt, but to say they are a "Mongolian people" is incorrect. New evidence under the North Sea



    Certain physical and Mitochondrial characteristics attributed to Finns and Saami (formerly called Lapps) were probably already present in the aboriginal Europeans, which we now believe included the Finns and Saami. (Origins of Saami in left column)

    Why did the prehistoric Finns have to travel, and how did they do it? The estimated resource area per person is between 0.1 - 0.5 sq. km. to survive in the north, and this meant travel in the vast Boreal Forests. Boat People Theory To traverse the huge numbers of lakes in the north during the long winters, early Finns invented ice skates. Later, when agriculture reached Finland, famines were fairly common as crops failed. The latest big one was in the latter half of the 17th Century, when Europe's weather took a deadly turn for the worse. In Finland, families even gave their children to the nomadic Saami to save them from starvation. Many ended up all the way up to the coast of Norway, as these nomads followed the migratory routes of their reindeer to the higher summer pastures in the mountains. Unlike the caribou of the Northwest Territories, that migrated from the treeline to the Barren Grounds in Canada, the migratory paths of these reindeer was east-west. The Saami were taxed by the Finns, but they also benefited from Finns. The Finns got furs and in return, the Saami got steel items that sometimes were traded all the way from the Middle East via the Volga River to Bjarmland.

    There are many related groups in the former Soviet Union, most of which are quickly being assimilated into the dominant Russian language and culture. This has lately begun to be reversed, but it is a gigantic task. Just as the western Finns have had Germanic influence, the eastern Finnish cultures have developed with many Turkic/Indo-Iranian and Slavic cultural, religious and linguistic influences. The eastern Finnish languages cannot be understood by Finns today as contacts to the east have been more or less cut for eight hundred years of Russian history. At times, glaciers also separated the Eastern Finno-Ugric people from their relatives that once extended from the Netherlands to the shores of the Black Sea in the South. So of course Finns would have some "Eastern" genes since their hunting and trading range to the East may have reached Siberia. > Place-names which stretch all the way to the Ural mountains are ancient Finnish related in origin which can be seen in the map section. Many place names have similar prefixes although they might be several thousand kilometers apart. Finno-Ugric place names based on the root "sum" and "sam" testify to the large area Finns once called their land. "Suursuomi" movement or the idea of rebuilding a larger Finland that Slavs conquered, gained strength in 1941 when the Finns set out to take back land Russia annexed the year before. Stalin had grossly underestimated Finnish ingenuity, determination and stamina. Many Finns and Estonians have a keen interest in their relatives to the east with whom many still feel some kinship ties. Recently, due to events in Russia against Finno-Ugric people by Moscow, there has been increased interest in this topic from many countries.

    Finnish culture is very Scandinavian in style, but Finno-Ugric origins make the people distinct in many ways. Who are the Uralic people? Where did they come from? Where do they live? What is their language and culture like? This web page explores these and many other questions relating to Uralic people: their past, present and future. We cannot do anything about the past, and the present is now, but we have the power to affect the future of the Finno-Ugric people, and the Finnish people are no exception.

    One cannot understand Finnish language, history and culture without some knowledge of related people. Finnish history and culture are presented against a background of the other Finno-Ugric people, the original Europeans(Fin.) Finnish written history is only from the second millennium, but fortunately the Finns have a strong oral tradition going back to the ice ages. Finns, and Karelian tribes in particular, had a strong oral tradition of rune singing their history of their ancient shamanistic beliefs, Cosmology, myth, magic, love and war. These traditions survived in Karelia probably because of the relative isolation from the early Finnish church. These stories were collected in the 19th Century and compiled into one story, composed of a masterful collection of epic poems that reveal the daily life of the people over millennia. Karelia, the land of the writer's ancestors, has a long history going back over eight thousand years. Today, Finns love their Kalevala which is read and enjoyed as a rich historical and mythological legacy of their ancestors. One reason for this is that Finns know that they have a glorious past that has been buried by official versions of history propagated during the time Finland was a part of Sweden and continued today in schools. The true oral tradition of the Finns survived in the backwoods of Karelia. We view the whole history of the Finnish people as open to revision by scientific multidisciplinary investigation.

    The Finnish tribes ruled the North since the last Ice Age. A thousand years ago, Eastern Slavs began intercepting Karelian trade with the Norwegians and Volga traders. The map section shows the areas they used in their wilderness trips. When the population exploding slavs came and took over the key trading posts to the East, they forced the inhabitants to move West. Timing is everything; the Slavs were two hundred years too late. By the time Slavs arrived, the Perm ivory trade was in decline as new sources became available in Africa. Trading posts in the Northwest Finno-Ugrian Nation that were established by Finns were reestablished by Russians (e.g. Ustjug). Most of them were taken from their original owners by force after they made several friendly visits. Finns joined the Swedish Army to prevent Russians from occupying all of Finnish lands. Though the Russian Chronicles state that they were fighting Swedes, the truth is that they were fighting Finns trying to keep what is theirs: their lands. You see Swedes never tried to turn Finns into Swedes, but Russians have been Russifying Finns from the time they entered their lands back in the 11th Century. It was providential that the Western Finns were "protected" by Sweden for 700 years, which gave this nation the opportunity to become what it is today rather than suffer genocide and absorption - which was the intention of mother Russia. Both Sweden and Russia fought for control of the land between Lake Onega and the Baltic, but the real owners of this land are Baltic Finns themselves, mainly Tavastians, Karelians (Eastern and Western), Veps, (Southeastern Karelians) and Ingrians who live between Estonia and Karelia.

    Since the last war, misinformation flooded the world's knowledge base and many false teachings have been spread about the Finns, Karelians, their rightful heritage in the north. These must be set straight. Viipuri (Vyborg) for example, which is not far from St. Petersburg, on the Gulf of Finland, was established by Finns and built by Finns, the Karelians - not Russians. History of Viipuri Province. Video with Swedish narration:



    Russian pamphlets and a plaque on a wall near the Viipuri fortress state that the natural harbor city of Viipuri is an old Russian city (when Finland was for a time a Russian Grand Duchy with an autonomous government, and for a time long ago when Finnish Viipuri was part of the Novgorod trade group where Finnish goods were traded with the Slavs to the east, before Russia even existed). It was part of a trading block, similar to the German Hanseatic League and now it is "back with the rightful owners." Finland "belonged" to Sweden a lot longer than it did Russia, including Viipuri, in fact about 700 years. The fact is that Viipuri and indeed all of Karelia (to the shores of Onega), Ingria (the area where St. Petersburg is today) and Finland belong to the Finnish people. Finns were deported from these areas when the Russians moved west to the Baltic, especially during and after Peter the Great established St. Petersburg in 1703. After the WWII, Russia settled newly occupied areas of Karelia vacated by Finns, who were escaping Marxism and Stalin, with people from all over Russia. Gradually all buildings suffered neglect and Karelia began to look like rundown Russian town. A Finnish site has documented all the lies told to the Russian people about the Second World War. As always, the Finns are the "Fascist" aggressors.

    Many countries have claims against Russia, land that has been taken when the opportunity presented during WWII. Who took the land? The Allies, specifically Russia. Karelia was taken by force in 1944 and it should be returned by the Allies (Britain, US, and Canada) since Russia could not have done it without American and Canadian material aid. When Russia blames Finland, it usually points to Finland's association with Germany and that Russia was fighting Fascism. However, if Russians are honest with themselves they will admit that they too were allied with Russia and they are the ones who started WWII with Germany. Having started WWII, Russia then blames Finland for attacking first. How absurd can you get.

    Karelia falls into Russian hands at the end of WWII
    The history of Finns in Karelia goes back to the ice age, when Slavs were still down in the warm south. I believe that this land was given to the Finns and they should have control over it. The Slavs are occupying it at the moment, but who knows what the future will bring. The writer's father always believed that he would have his home back, which was taken by Russians in 1944, along with the demand for over $500 Million dollars worth of war indemnity. The Russians undervalued everything so the number is much higher. To the Russian's surprise the Finns paid it off in a few years and became a manufacturing powerhouse. There was a clause that Russians would get more land if the Finns defaulted. Apparently they still had not learned their lesson: they weren't dealing with an ordinary people here. These were Finns.

    Shouldn't everyone get their land back? Of course the Slavs would have nowhere to go then. We Finns did not sell our land, it was taken by force. According to International Law, since Russia Attacked Finland, Karelia is technically occupied Finnish territory and must be returned. That land was taken, not once but twice between 1939 and 1944.

    Is there a comparison between Finns and Jews? In some ways. The brilliant Israeli scientists made the desert bloom, and now the ones who sold them land want it back! Then, when attacked by neighbors, they expanded. Only Jews have to leave land they have purchased or settled because it is called "occupation." The area has been the home of Jews for thousands of years, and there is no reason to believe they do not belong there, like the Finns belong in their ancestral lands. Like the Israelis, the Finns almost always end up victorious against their main enemy through history - Russia. They are both blessed with knowledge of warfare tactics that offset the uneven numbers. Traditionally Russians just took and killed everyone or sent them off to Siberia as slaves - then Russified the population. This is genocide. They also turned the Eastern Finns to the Orthodox Religion, to drive them away from their brothers and into the Russian fold. It seemed to work. Russians want desperately to join the world economic system, or they cannot move forward. First they should make good and give back the land, not just to the Finns but all the small defenseless countries they preyed upon especially at a time when everyone was in crisis. To justify these annexations, the Russians now resort to changing history, like that of Viipuri, or omitting it altogether. Russia's land grabs. The Arabs never forgive the Israelis, and they never really move forward either. Finns know how to forgive the Russians, and therefore they have moved forward and became one of the most prosperous countries in the world.

    The Return of Karelia

    Finland was attacked by Soviet Union, without cause November 30, 1939. Karelians are waiting for their land to be returned. A new book (2012) in Finland says that the Finns are in the process of bringing the question of Finland's guilt or innocence in the accusation that Finland is responsible for the war with Soviet Union, to the highest court in Finland, which still clings to the Soviet imposed line that the government was committing a crime in fighting the Soviets. What is meant by that is, that Finland should have just laid down their weapons and let the Soviets occupy Finland. This is absurd, but that is the logical scenario if Finland should do what those backing the Soviet view, says they should have. The men "responsible" were imprisoned: Risto Ryti and his ministers. Most Finns want this corrected, and the government is not willing to go there.

    Karelia should never have been taken in the first place - it was Stalin's doing - and we know how bad he was to even his own people. The Americans and British caved in to Stalin's desires for expansion at the expense of Finland. There is quite a large organized movement in Finland to repatriate Karelia back to its rightful owners. The only thing that those in Russia who want to keep this booty have to defend their ill gotten gains is that they were "liberating" Karelia from "Fascists." Even a school boy knows that Hitler and Mussolini were Fascists, but not Finland. May I remind anyone who wants to take the Russian point of view, that Russia fought along side of Hitler, and together they started WWII. So, those Russians pointing at Finland, better point at themselves. Furthermore, Russia signed the (Atlantic Charter, 1942) which means they promised not to engage in land grabbing in exchange for foreign aid. Now that Karelia is occupied by Russia, Putin has embarked upon a restructuring of historical facts to consolidate these gains as legitimate.
    In researching sources such as the Encyclopaedia Britannica be aware that it may contain Soviet era disinformation regarding areas they "liberated." The elite have always had their way, employing writers to write or invent history. They are very clever at it, and you can easily miss the lie or omission if you don't have enough background information to spot it. For example, when Finland was attacked by Russia, fancy weapons were scarce, so they invented the Molotov Cocktail, a solution of flammable liquid that destroyed tanks. Now they are claiming it was their invention. If Russians don't like the story of how badly they treated their neighbors, no problem, they just invent a nice palatable story and everything is fine. Their history remains pure.

    Finland and The Finnish People

    Finland (Suomi), a northern European country of 5.3 million people, is a land where peasants have always been free. Historically, Finns are stubbornly independent and hard-working.

    Since 1155, Finland had been in the Swedish realm. Finland, became the borderline between the Orthodox east and Western Christianity. I'd like to put religion into perspective here. Most Finns are Lutheran Christians. Simply put, the Bible is the highest authority, and the worship of Mary, icons, saints and special intercession and interpretive powers for priests was discarded by Martin Luther, and rejected by Jesus. According to Him, the priest's duties were transferred to all people.



    In 1808, Finland became a Russian autonomous Grand Duchy, a special status giving the Finns great control of their internal government. After the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917, Finland became an independent republic with a social democratic government. The Finnish Independence Day is December 6. At 337,000 sq. km. (130,128.01 sq. mi.), with 60,000 lakes, Finland is about the size of New England, New Jersey, and New York combined, or 4/10 the size of British Columbia, Canada. Finland's southern shores are at the approximate latitude of Yukon/Northwest Territories/British Columbia border. Finland can boast a little bit when confronted with one-up-manship of neighbors. Finland's education system is rated (2002, 2003) third best in the world, and in 2006 ranked the highest.

      Finland's Education System Tops
      Rated number one in the world makes Finns among the smartest people in the earth, way ahead of the Swedes. Finland ranked number one on the UN's 2003 technology achievement index. Forbes, 2004
      Freedom of Press: which country is tops? You guessed it. These values and identity that built and sustained Finland should be preserved.
      Finland, Cultural Lone Wolf   Living in Finland >Sixty Minutes TV show reported that Finns are the shyest people on earth. I know this to be accurate to some extent having been born there, but they are making good progress.

      I took a trip to the country where I was born before going to University, as a sort of "Rite of Passage." There I met the Finns themselves, my people, who were not that shy once you got to know them. Shyness is a national character and does not necessarily mean they are depressed or antisocial. You must realize that Finns are originally a forest/river/lake people and as such are comfortable being alone in the vast wilderness of the north; living with crowds is alien to the Finnish spirit - the exception being (e.g. Tango) dance halls.

      European Council on Refugees and Exiles (ECRE) is addressing the needs of people who were displaced in wartime. Central issue is the return of assets taken, especially real estate. Russians for some reason have always thought that Karelia was theirs, and Sweden had no rights there. How is it that they should have the right to take the land away from the Finns, then force the Finns to pay for their campaign of terror after they took Karelia, the best part of Finland along with a large lake Finland shared with Russia?


      Did the Finnish tribes change the Russian place names to Finnish, or did the invading Russians change the Finnish names to Russian? Who named the geographical areas are the owners. Check the map section and see how far East from the present border the Finnish names for every stream, lake, and other topography, went. You see, the argument between the Finns and Russians was over land. The Swedes backed the Finns and the Russians tried divide and conquer to get the Eastern Finnic people to fight their relatives to the West.Their goal was to reach the Baltic, which was already occupied by Finns, Estonians, Livonians, Latvians and Lithuanians. The Swedes did not turn the Finns into Swedes over the 700 years they controlled the territory, but the Russians did everything they could to prevent the Eastern Karelians from joining their brothers to the West. Religion played a big role there. Russia's genocide and annexation continued up to 1944.

      It will be interesting to see how willing Putin et al is in returning booty USSR took illegally. (Russia signed the Atlantic Charter meaning no country was to grab land) Since Karelia was a part of USSR which no longer exists, Russia has actually annexed Karelia after the fall of Communism. Karelia should have gone back to Finland at that time.

      Finland (like many other European States, e.g. Poland and Baltic States) failed to obtain assistance from United States and Britain in the WWII. The "Third Aggressor of WWII" received assistance "to beat Hitler" but this aid was used to annex millions of square Kilometers of land to the Soviet Union.



      It may sound silly but, nowadays Russia still actually claims that tiny Finland attacked the giant Soviet Union and that they were fighting Fascism. Even Churchill pointed to Finland's "Fascist" leanings, though all Finland wanted was Karelia back where it belongs. Perhaps by the same logic, England had Communist leanings since they were friends of Stalin. A mouse does not normally attack an elephant, but that Finnish mouse did roar when attacked. Finland was never, and never will be Fascist - it is against the Finnish nature which accepts everyone, while one of the main goals of Fascism is to cull away all undesirables of the face of the earth. Finland was, in fact, fighting its age-old war: trying to prevent Russians from annexing/occupying/absorbing, Russifying and finally enslaving the people.

      From the Baltic to the Pacific, the land is claimed by "Russians" as theirs since time began, but in reality, they conquered the peaceful tribes and put them under their harsh yoke. Yet, they claim old Finnish cities such as Viipuri as "Old Russian" city they liberated from the Finnish thieves. Russian history books are great fiction, but when repeated in the West, their "history" becomes a serious thing the Finns have been trying to correct.


      Accusing the other side of aggression is merely a normal war formality. The Finns did not have a death wish. The old sport of "the Russians crossing the Finnish Line" (where they often got Finnished) goes back hundreds of years, but Churchill and Roosevelt chose to ignore that fact in 1941-44, an about face from 1939, when Russia tried to annex little Finland. That the war was not just is refuted or accepted by Russian leadership depending on who is in power. The present administration claims Finland attacked, which was the Soviet position. Russia downplays the first 1939-40 Winter War (which is easily seen as Russian aggression) but emphasizes Finland's 1941 offensive to take back the lost territory with German aid. Hence Soviets claim that the land they took in 1944 was liberated from the fascists, (therefore morally right) though Finland is and has always been, a Social Democratic country - and fiercely independent. The counter culture of 1970's called stealing "liberating" - which is what the Russians still call it today. The indigity done not just to the Finns, but the other Baltic countries as well, by the Soviets - and picked up by and repeated by the Western press - is that anyone fighting with the Nazis against Soviets, were Nazis themselves. This lie cast a shadow over the Finns and helped the Soviets annex Karelia in front of the noses of Churchill and Roosevelt, and with their blessings. Both nations abstained from recognizing Finnish independence in 1918, and here they again approved Finland's reunion with Russia. They hoped that by giving Stalin what he wanted, he would cooperate with them later. But fighting with the Nazis, or being occupied by them was of little consequence, for the results would be the same: annexation, enslavement and forced deportation and/or death. The use of the word "Nazi" by the Russian people, even today often extends to anyone opposed to Russian influence. Russian propaganda only focuses on the millions of people the Nazis murdered, but seldom do they recall for the people the millions of people Stalin, one of their own, murdered.



      The world has a right to be concerned today about the direction Russia is headed under Putin et al Putin stages rallies to stay in power and in 2014 he made his move to rebuild the Soviet Union. Perhaps there is more Fascism and Communism still in the world than we would like to admit, both sides of the Atlantic. One good thing bout Putin is his hatred of ISIS, and if Trump becomes president you will see a big thaw in US - Russian relations. On the surface, he appears to be good now, but time will tell.



      Putin has also reinstated the alliance between the Russian Orthodox Church and Government - as in the days of the Czars. The Church supported Putin and in return, Putin agreed to begin persecution of all other religions, as in the old times. How can the Russian Orthodox Church be the true church if it is supporting persecution of other Christians? One religion, one party, what's next? The door has all but closed for evangelism, and gathering in homes to exercise religious liberty is now a crime. What makes the west so strong and free, is their willingness to accept various religious beliefs, allowing them to freely exercise worship. Alexandr Solzhnitsyn believed that the problems of the world were spiritual, not political. He believed that what Russia needed to do more than anything else was to repent for the suffering she had caused. In 1983, when he was awarded the prestigious Templeton Prize, in his acceptance speech, he said that if he had to sum up the World's problems in a few words he would say "Men have forgotten God."

      Glasnost lifted restrictions in Russia for outside Christian ministries. Hannu Haukka (a family friend from Vancouver BC) meets a Finnish girl in Russian Karelia, marries her and they start the largest ministry ever in Russia. 1990 IRR/TV received 1,000,000 letters in response to Superbook a children's Bible cartoon series aired on Soviet State TV Channel One. The Moscow post office is swamped. Great Commission - Christian broadcasting to Russia, by Hannu Haukka CEO, from Vancouver BC.

      Finnish Society underwent a profound transition in the last part of the second millennium, and continues in the new one. On the 1st of January 1995, Finland joined the European Union (EU, former EEC or EC), losing a lot of her autonomy in the process. Twenty years later, Finland had only 20% of her former self left, and if she stays, all Finnishness will be erased. Even the language has a distinct English accent especially in Helsinki. It sounds more and more like Finns in America who have been away for a long time. Serious questions have raised as to the value of belonging to a union that takes away everything and gives back nothing worth anything but trade and even that is too controlled. Discontent is rising in all the EU countries. Finland is participating in the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU); the currency (markka, abbr. mk or FIM) is now replaced by Euro (with a ratio of 5.94571 FIM = 1 euro). (There are so many songs in Finland with Markka in it. Will they have to change the words? "Ei ole mulla Euroja taskussa..." = I don't have any Markkas in my pocket..)


      Finland has supported Turkey's bid to join EU for years, and has not recognized the Armenian Genocide of ~1,000,000 by Turkey. This is just political correctness by a leftist government played with over a million innocent Christians massacred by Turks. Turkey is outwardly a "democratic" free country but inwardly a repressive typical Islamic regime, though somewhat less than other countries in the region. Things took a turn for the worse in 2015 for Turkey. She has aligned itself with ISIS, and its leaders benefit personally from the stolen oil, which is funding terror and expulsion of Syria's citizens into Europe. Turkey is the enemy.
      Turkey wants to project an image satisfactory to the people of EU, but it is (in the opinion of the writer) a dishonest image. Their Constitution guarantees "Freedom of Religion," but in practice it represses all religions but Islam. In 2012, reports by 700 Club have reported that Turkey has moved further towards Islamic Fundamentalism. Murders of Christians go unpunished and soon there will be no Christians in Turkey. Is this the country Europe wants to join? This criminal organization? The Ottomans destroyed Christianity in Turkey and now the administration is finishing the job.
      Atom Egoyan's film Ararat is about the Armenian Genocide by Turkey. (see DVD in left column) In 2007, United States Senate has proclaimed the killing of at least one million Armenian Christians in Turkey as genocide, a charge they deny. Turkey was the country that was trying to take over Europe in the Middle Ages. Now are Europeans thinking of inviting them to take over? A Muslim country will never be a truly open, or free, society although each one claims to be just that. Turkey has one of the highest number of journalists in prison, surpassing China and Iran. (BBC 2011)


      No country in EU represses religion, but this is changing as Islam becomes dominant in many communities. Antisemitism and attacks against Christians, especially rapes, has increased dramatically.

      Christians who preach in Turkey are typically arrested and jailed for two years and released just before the trial. That's not all, Turkey is increasingly being ruled by the Muslim leaders, as in Iran and Iraq. Most Christians have left. How is this country able to fit into a European "free" society? It is impossible. It would be a disaster, with even more Muslims in Europe, adding to the present disasterous numbers. Former Finnish president Halonen would have welcomed Turkey into EU, despite gross human rights violations, showing that Liberal minded thinkers are willing to accept anything, even if it is not in the interest of the country. If you are a Christian living in Europe and you want to start a church in Turkey, you will be jailed. Nothing in Islam guarantees freedom of worship, in fact it encourages its members to wipe out any other religion. It is crazy thinking to adopt such a country, but crazy thinking regarding the Islamic threat, as we have now witnessed everywhere, has ruled in Finland since Kekkonen.

      Which path has Finland chosen to set for itself? The new millennium has brought many potential traps to which unwary nations could easily become prey. By joining EU, it has set its path with the collective, which means much less control of ones own destiny. The folly of EU becomes the folly of Finland as Europe becomes "Eurabia." The successes of EU become the successes of Finland, at least in theory. More and more countries are having second thoughts due to almost total control of internal affairs. Is this not what Finland has fought in three wars to avoid? It appears Finland's cherished freedoms are being given away to foreign interests. Some think Finland is breaking faith with the soldiers who died for Finland's freedom.



      Many Finns are just beginning to find out exactly what it means to be in this union, and some are having second thoughts about losing their hard fought for and won, independence. Once again, Finland and the Finnish language is in a minority position in a larger union. The Finns are generally very enthusiastic about this relationship, but not all news is positive about the EU affects on the Finnish people, especially farmers. There is also a lesson from the past. In the late 1600's when Finnish troops were fighting Sweden's battles, far away from their land, Finland was attacked by Russians, which ended up being a massive setback for all Baltic Finns. Could this be repeated if war breaks out and Finnish troops have to go defend Central Europe, leaving Finland vulnerable?

      The future of Finnish culture and language is daily becoming increasingly fragile. Not only is Finland engulfed in EU, a massive surrender of sovereignty, but the people embrace western culture to a great extent, and in their enthusiasm to do so, have suffered linguistic and cultural decrement recently to powerful, magnetic Americanism that is readily available through all media sources. There are many ways Finns could suffer greatly in this union and immigration is now the biggest one. Nothing against immigrants, but we must use our brains and see what has happened in other European countries and learn.
      Finnish language is unique, musical and beautiful and should always be appreciated or it may, in the near future, be lost. The Finnish vocabulary, being agglutinative, is self-defining, and offers unlimited combinations to form meanings. "Keuhkoputkentulehdus" is formed from three words: keuhko, (lung) putki, (tube) and tulehdus (inflammation). The definition is contained in the word itself. English words, by contrast, can only achieve a few forms and meanings, and you have to remember the definition. But Finnish has already been radically adultrated by English words, and that's a "fakta" - and they listen to their favorite music "biisi" or piece. The Finnish "kappale" and "pala" no longer work to describe music.
      The internet has brought the world closer together alright, The average Finn spends 3 hours per day watching television, and now there's the internet with Facebook and the rest of the social media. No wonder they are picking up these words so quickly. Listening to Finnish programs on TV or the Internet vividly shows the radical changes as every few words are English with a Finnish ending. I am used to that being an immigrant to Canada, but now it is happening in Finland. Not only that but the speech is sounding more flat, devoid of the colorful sounds and rhythm that are usually heard from various provinces. We who have immigrated many years ago still speak the same way we did when we got here, and Pirkko Kiansten's radio show from the University of Victoria is a perfect example. We have received comments about how beautiful here speech sounds compared to the degraded speech heard on the evening news in Finland. [Pirkko] Perhaps there are some changes to be made... The January 2003 programming for TV2: 9 American films, 4 Finnish films and 3 other. Finland faces West, even past its EU brothers. Most Finns are Lutherans on paper, but not in practice. Finland has become secularized, a country of pagans with one foot in their traditional religion just to be safe. Maybe, they hope, God will be kind to them dispute their ignoring Him. This has happened pretty much at the same time as secularization in all Western countries. Only about three percent of Finns attend church regularly. You might say Finland is spiritually impoverished. As a result of this spiritual vacuum, Islam is beginning to make gains as it has in Sweden and the rest of Europe and Islamic riots are spreading there. It was theorized by the leftist government that riots only occurred in the Middle East because of their repressive governments. That theory has been shown to be false. When you bring in so many people, only to experience high unemployment, that is what you get. This is a bad sign for the future in my opinion, as I am sorry to say Islam in a country seems to be worse than not having any beliefs.
