Proud Infidel ranting about the ongoing war against democratic and secular values (Don't fool yourselves)! Maybe a voice of sanity in a wide ocean of madness.

Sisu

Sisu is a Finnish term that could be roughly translated into English as strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity. The equivalent in English is "to have guts", and indeed, the word derives from sisus, which means something inner or interior. However, sisu has a long-term element in it; it is not momentary courage, but the ability to sustain the same. To anthropologists, it is an appropriate invention for a cold northern land, dotted by thousands of lakes, and long under threat of being overwhelmed, militarily, linguistically and otherwise, by more powerful neighbours. Similar concepts exist among other cold-weather peoples, such as the Inuit and Chukchi.

This is the kind of sisu displayed by my ancestors. YEAH!

A Finnish U-boat under the command of captain Anti Leino was dispatched from Mariehamn. During the night, Leino found the Russian boat.The two submarines were at the sea's surface when the Finnish vessel fired two torpedoes. Both missed, and when the Russian sub tried to escape with a rapid dive, Captain Leino decided to ram his enemy."It's an unbelievable situation and an extraordinary feat from the Finnish captain to make this split-second decision in the heat of battle, putting his and his crew's life at risk," said Björn Rosenlöf.The Russian submarine sank with a crew of 38 men onboard. Meanwhile, the Finnish boat limped back to Mariehamn, damaged and offloading water with pumps.

This is what Europeians lacks today-
SISU! JÄVLARANAMMA! GUTS!
Call it what you will.
I call it bravery.

Know your enemy
Look him in the eye
Take a stand
And weare steel toe caps

Being polite to the unpolite- Is not the answer
Being nice to the rude- Is not the answer
Turn your other cheek to some one who
shows you a fist- Is not the answer

Atleast not when the fist are being claimed

- to be the answer...

“Then I kicked him with full force right in the balls but he didn’t go down. He just kept on babbling his rubbish."

Jihadi Juice!- Heh!
