#Eテレ 「”２つのアメリカ”の衝突」 #スーパープレゼンテーション #TED Published on Jan 27, 2017
★早朝 3時ごろか この映像をテレビで見ていた。 大きな 感動に包まれた。アメリカ社会で 起きることは
何年か後に 日本でも 起きると言われている。 いやすでに 北欧でも起きている。大量移民や 大量難民が
他の国に移動すると 様々な軋轢が 生まれる。とても 難しい問題だ。アメリカの場合は 第2次世界大戦後に
700万人が 海外から移って来たと言われている。スエーデンは 800万の人口のところに 100万人引き受けた
軋轢が 起こらないわけはない。 ちょうど ノルウェーでの不幸な動画を見たばかりだった。
一番下に ご参考までに 載せておくが アメリカファーストや日本ファーストをあおるつもりは 毛頭ない。
複雑な 問題となって行く。 映像を観ていると 気の毒で仕方がない。

A tale of two Americas.
２つのアメリカの物語 ／ アナンド・ギリダラダス
1981年、アメリカ・オハイオ州生まれ。ニューヨークタイムズなどでコラムニストとして活躍する作家。インド移民の２世という立場から、現代アメリカ社会を独自の視点で取材している。2014年に発表したノンフィクションThe True Americanでは、9.11同時多発テロの直後に起きたイスラム教徒への銃撃事件を取り上げ、大きな反響を呼んだ。
The moral challenge of my generation, I believe, is to reacquaint these two Americas, to choose union over secession once again.

Anand Giridharadas: A tale of two Americas. And the mini-mart where they collided Published on Mar 24, 2015
Ten days after 9/11, a shocking attack at a Texas mini-mart shattered the lives of two men: the victim and the attacker. In this stunning talk, Anand Giridharadas, author of “The True American,” tells the story of what happened next. It’s a parable about the two paths an American life can take, and a powerful call for reconciliation.

Islamic Rape Wave in Norway / Islamsk Voldtekt Epidemien i Norge Published on May 26, 2012
At least one member of Parliament, André Oktay Dahl of the Conservative Party, calls the situation “critical” and is brave enough to acknowledge that many of the perpetrators come from cultures “with a reprehensible attitude toward women.”
The scandalous fact is that Norway, for all its wealth, has chosen not to invest overmuch in law and order. “Norway wastes millions of kroner every year on ‘development aid’ that ends up largely in the pockets of corrupt African dictators; it pours millions more into the pockets of non-Western immigrants who have become masters at exploiting the welfare system; the Norwegian government even funds anarchists. It’s not entirely misguided for a Norwegian citizen to feel that his tax money is going less to fight the crime that threatens his home, his self, and his business than to support criminals.”
But beefing up the police force wouldn’t even begin to address the problem that’s at the root of the country’s growing rape crisis: the presence in Norway, and especially in Oslo, of ever-growing numbers of people who have nothing but contempt for Western culture, who have absolutely no concept of respect for members of religions other than their own, and who have been brought up on the idea that women who dare to walk the street alone and without veils covering their faces deserve to be violated.
Not so very many years ago, Oslo was virtually a rape-free city, inhabited by people who had been brought up on civilized notions of mutual respect and tolerance. No longer. Over the years, the incidence of rape has risen steadily. A wildly disproportionate number of the perpetrators are “rejected asylum seekers” — which may sound puzzling unless you are aware of the perverse state of affairs whereby even persons officially rejected for asylum in Norway are still allowed to stay. And the increasing temerity of the rapists — who know very well that they will probably not be caught, and, if caught, will not be severely punished — is reflected in the fact that the most recent rape (in which two men assaulted a 21-year-old woman) took place virtually in the backyard of the Royal Palace.
Oslo is, of course, not alone in having undergone this cultural sea change: many major cities in Western Europe have experienced similar transformations. Yet it now appears that the incidence of rapes in Oslo has now eclipsed that in the other two Scandinavian capitals, Stockholm and Copenhagen. This is quite an achievement, given that Oslo has traditionally been the smallest and sleepiest of these three cities — the least cosmopolitan, the one that feels more like a safe small town than a European capital.
A glimpse of the official mentality that makes this steady rise in rape statistics possible was provided in an article that appeared in the Norwegian daily Dagbladet on October 25. It appears that in the summer of last year, the same paper ran a story about Abdi, a Somali immigrant, then 24 years old, who since coming to Norway as an asylum seeker had committed 14 robberies, been incarcerated, become a narcotic, and lived on welfare.
On June 3, 2010, Dagbladet reported, an Oslo court had ruled that Abdi, who is not a Norwegian citizen, should be returned to Somalia. Now, however, that ruling has been overturned by an appeals court. Abdi’s lawyer was jubilant, saying that this decision “is important for many Somalis in this country.” (Of all immigrant groups in Norway, Somalis are among those with the lowest employment and highest crime rates.) The lawyer chided Norway for having shown “an ugly face in this case” by planning to return her client to Somalia, but she expressed hope that given the new decision Norway would “change its practice” — presumably meaning that no amount of unsavory activity would make it possible to kick an immigrant out.
The appeals court’s basis for its decision to let Abdi stay in Norway was that it might be dangerous for him to live in Somalia. Whether letting him stay in Norway might make life dangerous for Norwegians didn’t seem to enter into the court’s calculus.
It’s not only the courts, to be sure, that are at fault in this sort of situation. In such cases, the media almost invariably step in and bombard the public with shameless propaganda designed to stir up sympathy for the miscreant in question. So it was with the Dagbladet article the other day, which sought to present Abdi as repentant, reformed, and reflective — indeed, almost sagacious and saintly. He was represented as having claimed that he has turned over a new leaf and that he now wants to help wayward immigrant kids to straighten out. He also supposedly said that he wants to study to be a sociologist (which, the more one thinks about it, sounds potentially even more dangerous than if he decided to persevere in his life of crime).
