Zuma wants a “pre-colonial land audit of land use and occupation patterns” to help decide which lands need to be taken, and has said that “We need to accept the reality that those who are in parliament where laws are made, particularly the black parties, should unite because we need a two-thirds majority to effect changes in the constitution.”
It’s believed that Zuma is calling for this radical action in response to the rise of a rival political party known as the Economic Freedom Fighters, who have long called for the confiscation of white owned lands.
In Question Period, Conservative MP Michelle Rempel explained to Justin Trudeau that there is growing fear and concern among Canadians living close to the Canada-US Border, as illegal border crossers continue flooding into our country.

If British school teachers find out a student of theirs wants to change his or her sex, they’ve been told to make sure they send them an “upbeat” message. Give them a cake, was the suggestion at the Association of Teachers and Lecturers conference on April 11.

In the original episode, titled “Probability,” a young woman told viewers, “I’m a girl. Could have just as easily been a boy, though, because the probability of becoming a girl is always 1 in 2.”

During his final year in office, President Obama’s team significantly expanded efforts to search National Security Agency intercepts for information about Americans, distributing thousands of intelligence reports across government with the unredacted names of U.S. residents during the midst of a divisive 2016 presidential election.
The data, made available this week by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, provides the clearest evidence to date of how information accidentally collected by the NSA overseas about Americans was subsequently searched and disseminated after President Obama loosened privacy protections to make such sharing easier in 2011 in the name of national security. A court affirmed his order.

According to Soma, “the symposium set out to explore whether concerns about Islam and the freedom of speech are legitimate, and whether Muslim identities are really in conflict with Canada’s values of pluralism, free speech, and democracy.”
Soma wrote that the far-right’s rhetoric accusing Islam of being incompatible with Western civilizations and arguing that the Islamic State (aka ISIS, Daesh, Caliphate) is based on the teachings of Islam, has caused a spike in Islamophobia and xenophobia that threatens the global peace.
I am a researcher in this field. In this capacity I have watched many ISIS videos, dozens at least but to be honest I have lost count. I am also ISIS’ target recruitment demographic, a young male who grew up in the West, with a keen sense of injustice and an awareness of the flaws of the current stage of western civilization.
As I watched increasing numbers of ISIS videos for work, I noticed they were starting to have an effect on my mind. Because of this I stopped watching them.
