Linda Sarsour invokes phony cemetery employee to explain why Jewish cemetery she raised $100,000 for got no money
Several months ago, Leftist media darling Linda Sarsour, smarting from revelations of her inveterate antisemitism, with great fanfare raised $100,000 for a Jewish cemetery where the tombstones had been vandalized. But where is the money? The Algemeiner last week ran a story entitled, “Colorado Jewish Cemetery Promised $100,000 by BDS Activist Linda Sarsour in March 2017 Says Money Still Hasn’t Arrived.”
Sarsour was furious and threatened legal action against the Algemeiner. She did not prove that the money had been turned over to the cemetery, but she did produce a statement in her own defense from “Jennifer Goodland of Golden Hill Cemetery.”
There’s just one problem: Jennifer Goodland is not affiliated with Golden Hill Cemetery.
Conservatives mount campaign against Trudeau over Omar Khadr settlement
This week, Conservative MP and former journalist Peter Kent drew significant U.S. attention to the case after he wrote an opinion piece about the payment in the Wall Street Journal, calling it a “cynical subversion of Canadian principles,” while Conservative MP Michelle Rempel appeared on Fox News with host Tucker Carlson to lambaste the government.
“Most Canadians are absolutely outraged about this,” Ms. Rempel said during her in-studio visit. When Mr. Carlson asked if the payment was “a way of giving the finger to the United States,” Ms. Rempel replied, “I think that this should have played out in a court of law.”
In the Most San Diego Dispute Ever, County Workers Are Fighting for the Right to Wear Flip-Flops
The union representing 11,000 San Diego County government employees began recent labor negotiations with lofty talk about a broad set of policy goals to help low-income San Diegans. Now, it’s fighting for the right to wear flip-flops.
In June, the county put out a memo straight out of “Office Space”: It was OK, county chief administrative officer Helen Robbins-Meyer declared, for county workers to wear business casual attire all summer, instead of just on casual Fridays.
That prompted Service Employees International Union Local 221 to file a formal complaint with the state’s Public Employment Relations Board.
Turkey’s new curriculum ditches Darwin, will teach jihad as ‘loving your nation’
Turkey’s education minister has announced details of the country’s new curriculum, stating that it will include the concept of jihad as being patriotic, rather than a “holy war.” It will also lack any reference to Darwin’s theory of evolution.
“Jihad is an element in our religion; it is in our religion…the duty of the Education Ministry is to teach every concept deservedly, in a correct way. It is also our job to correct things that are wrongly perceived, seen or taught,” Education Minister Ismet Yilmaz said during a Tuesday press conference, as quoted by Hurriyet.
“The real meaning of jihad is loving your nation,” he said, according to Reuters, adding that the concept will be included in lessons on Islamic law and basic religious sciences.
