When you're scared of jumping, you'll never get anywhere... I'm a Kafir, a crusader against the most evil ideology islam. I have in depth knowledge and that's the reason I resist and reject islam, I will bash and smash it, in every possible way at every possible moment to every possible person. I gather and therefore expose all news on islam or islam-related news on the 2017 initiated site ZEEPERTJE.COM Please join and feel free to react. Fight islam for it's the evil of our time, evil trying to dominate and kill democracy, kill all freedom of speech and freedom of religion... Islam means annihilation of all that is non-islamic, AND the proces of islamization is, together with the promotion of the leftist "progressive" behaviour (like transgender /multiculti /mass-migration /interrace-marriage promotion and therefore destruction of Western (family) values) the blower on the machine called Zionism. The total submission/destruction of the Goyim/Kafir so Human Kind! Just always remember this!
