Violence in the West Bank as pro-Hamas protesters clash with Palestinian security forces on 31st anniversary of Islamist party’s creation

On social media sites, activists posted videos showing the security forces using batons against both male and female demonstrators in Hebron.

I missed the Bill and Hillary conversation tour when it hit Toronto due to prior commitments. Socks, even the least flamboyant, do not sort themselves. Press accounts tell me it was less than the crowd-swollen high-energy jamboree it was expected to be.

VANCOUVER—Users of China’s hugely popular social-media app WeChat know it well: the big red dot.
The dot lets them know the news article they want to read is no longer available. It says the link is suspected of phishing or malware and has been blocked, but in reality the dot often appears when the Chinese government doesn’t want a story seen.
“At eight years old my parents sat me down for a serious talk,” said Noushin, during the interview. “I can still remember the tremble in my mother’s voice. She told me that in two days I would be part of an Islamic religious blessing. My father insisted that I behave, and not cause a scene. I was confused, but I trusted them, that they were telling me the truth. I trusted them right up to the moment that the wedding ring went onto my finger and I became the bride of a 43 year old man.” Noushin, now 19, is the mother of three.
You might assume that her parents, who so willingly gave their child to this man, were not educated or had never been exposed to modern ways of thinking. In fact, Noushin’s father had been educated in Europe, and then came back to his country to work for the regime.

Is Islamic anti-Zionism comparable to Nazi anti-Semitism?
The fact Hamas would rather starve the children of Gaza than coexist with a Jewish neighbor epitomizes the degree to which Jew-hatred is a paramount value in the contemporary Islamic World.
Many educated people believe that anti-Semitism is a regrettable, yet altogether recent phenomenon in the Muslim World. In their Islamophile view of history, Jews and Muslims lived peacefully together until Zionism ruined their idyllic coexistence.
This argument implies that Jews are to blame for anti-Semitism in the Muslim World. The corollary of this position being that the onus of restoring peace to the Middle East rests on Jews.

The response from the Alberta government on this troubling news?
Crickets. Deafening silence. Inaction on an epic scale.
Officially called the Impact Assessment Act, many people in the energy industry prefer to call it Justin Trudeau’s “No More Pipelines Law”. Deron Bilous, Alberta’s economic development and trade minister, said Bill C-69 will “doom our energy sector.”
Premier Rachel Notley’s NDP government argues it has done plenty to object to Bill C-69.
The facts state otherwise.
