For almost two years, a protest movement known as “Black Lives Matter” has convulsed the nation. Triggered by the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in August 2014, the Black Lives Matter movement holds that racist police officers are the greatest threat facing young black men today. This belief has triggered riots, “die-ins,” the murder and attempted murder of police officers, a campaign to eliminate traditional grand jury proceedings when police use lethal force, and a presidential task force on policing.
Even though the U.S. Justice Department has resoundingly disproven the lie that a pacific Michael Brown was shot in cold blood while trying to surrender, Brown is still venerated as a martyr. And now police officers are backing off of proactive policing in the face of the relentless venom directed at them on the street and in the media.
The Government is to launch an investigation into whether sharia courts operating in the UK discriminate against women – legitimising forced marriages and issuing unfair divorce settlements.
The Home Office said it would examine claims that sharia courts – or councils – may be working in a “discriminatory and unacceptable way”, seeking to legitimise forced marriage and issuing divorces that are unfair to women, contrary to the teachings of Islam. However, it will also seek out examples of best practice among sharia councils.
What a nightmare, this insanity should been nipped in the bud.
Never trust politicians or multiculturalists. They will do great harm.
On Saturday, the Independent reported how a number of women living in Iran chose to cut their hair short and dress as men in a bid to bypass morality police. One of these women has now decided to speak at length about her own reasons for doing so.
Wearing a hijab is a legal requirement for women in all public places in Iran and strictly enforced by ‘morality police’.
Leaked Isil files have revealed the group’s so-called “borders chief”, a senior leader responsible for recruiting thousands of foreign jihadists and funnelling them into Syria.
Tarad Mohamed al-Jaraba, a 37-year-old Iraqi national who uses the nom de guerre Abu Mohamed al-Shimali, facilitated the entry of more than 6,000 fighters over two years.
A third of the 18,000 foreign jihadists who joined the group between 2013 and 2015 put Jaraba down as a “mediator” on their entrance forms, which were leaked to the Syrian opposition newspaper Zaman al-Wasl and shared with the Telegraph.
The letter in which TS Eliot rejects George Orwell’s allegory Animal Farm because “we have no conviction … that this is the right point of view from which to criticise the political situation” has been published online for the first time by the British Library, alongside a wealth of other material from 20th-century writers.
Quotations attributed in the Quaker Valley High School yearbook to a terrorist and two of history’s most notorious mass murderers — Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi — have district leaders apologizing and offering refunds to families.
I give the kids credit for initiative. This was a good prank. Well I hope it was a prank.
Increasing numbers of German’s are moving to Hungary to flee the refugee crisis, German public service broadcaster Bayerische Rundfunk reported.
Estate agents in the picturesque Balaton area in western Hungary said there had been a surge in Germans looking to move to the area since September, after millions of refugees fleeing conflict in the Middle East and Africa entered Germany.
This month, a British feminist historian, Dr. Catherine Hall, refused a half a million dollars because the money is connected to an Israel-based foundation.
The Dan David Foundation had absolutely no trouble finding two other European feminist historians (Drs. Arlette Farge and Dr. Inga Clendinnen) and awarding them the distinguished prize.
The matter is a curious one. First, because Hall herself not only declined the prize; her supporters, the British Committee for the Universities of Palestine released the news of her rejection. Hall and her supporters/handlers clearly want credit for her “politically correct” sacrifice. Perhaps a pro-Islamic or a British anti-Zionist foundation will soon find a way to reward her. Perhaps others will then follow suit.
A Jordanian Doctor who helped deliver a baby at a Saudi hospital was shot by the woman’s husband who was angry that a male obstetrician tended to his wife, according to a report in the London-based Al-Araby newspaper.
Dr. Mohannad al-Zubn helped a woman give birth in the King Fahd Medical City in the Saudi capital of Riyadh last month.
According to Al-Araby, the father went to the hospital in order to “thank” the doctor, only to pull out a gun and shoot him at close range.
I am of the generation that read The Communist Manifesto before we read the Constitution. Well, not exactly. I did the read the U.S. Constitution and The Federalist Papers, mostly in student-outline versions, so I could get a decent grade in high-school American history and get into a good college. But I really read The Communist Manifesto. It was my samizdat, my underground literature. I can still recall the experience now, well over 50 years later—the intense, almost breathless feeling as I pored over the dog-eared, slim, cheap blue paperback with the prematurely yellowing pages until the small hours of morning.
