French prime minister unveils new deradicalisation programme
Following are highlighted components of the deradicalization program…
- Investments in psychological care for the children of returning jihadists. So far 68 children have been repatriated, most of them under 13.
- Tighter regulation of private Islamic schools, which have grown rapidly in number in recent years.
- More training for teachers to help them detect the early signs of radicalisation and debunk conspiracy theories.
- More investment in teaching students to separate fact from fiction on the internet.
- Making it easier to reassign public servants that show signs of radicalisation to jobs that do not involve contact with the public.
France c’est fini!
Archbishop Welby Attacks Brexit, Tells Brits to Welcome Mass Migration and ‘Change with the Newcomers’
Archbishop Of Canterbury Says Islamic Rules Are Incompatible With Britain’s Laws Which Have Christian Values
People wanting to get on their bikes in France have one option less to do so after the Gobee.bike hire service closed for business after a string of thefts and vandalism.
“It is with great sadness that we are officially announcing to our community the termination of Gobee.bike service in France on 24 February 2018,” the Hong Kong-based service said.
“Over the months of December and January, the mass destruction of our fleet has become the new entertainment of underaged individuals,” said Gobee.bike, which had rolled out 2,000 bikes in Paris alone and had 150,000 users across France.
Recently, Contently, a marketing firm, put out an article by Tallie Gabriel (“Your Brand Needs a Conscience”) that urged companies to take up hot-button political issues in order to be successful. This seems like incredibly stupid advice after what happened to the NFL this season, where the league did just that.
The North Korean cheerleaders at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang are used as sex slaves by top politicians, a defector has claimed.
Lee So-yeon, a 42-year-old former military musician who fled to South Korea in 2008, said dancers and singers were forced to strip and provide sexual services at parties held every day for the country’s Central Politburo.
Members of the decision-making committee include North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and the President Kim Yong-nam.
A snail racing competition has been postponed because the snails are too “sluggish” to take part, organisers say.
The charity event was due to take place today until organisers noticed their lethargic champs were not ready and raring to go.
The Dartmoor Union pub in Holbeton, Plymouth, was due to collect the competitors but when they rang the pet shop they were told the cold weather had led to them becoming too “sluggish” to go racing.
An Afghan who threatened to commit a vehicular terror attack which targeted “white people” because he was frustrated waiting for his refugee status has been spared jail.
Labour could lift Ken Livingstone’s suspension and allow him to resume the status of a full party member within weeks in a move that will reopen the explosive internal row over alleged antisemitism.
The Observer has been told by party sources that, unless further information comes to light, no further action is likely against the former London mayor, whose two-year suspension following controversial claims that Hitler supported Zionism in the 1930s ends on 27 April.
The sources said this would leave him free to participate within the party again as a full member.
Just another day in Mexico.
Vincente Fox fumes at Trump but ignores Mexican government violence.
After the 2016 election, former Mexican president Vincente Fox posted a video with a sign reading “Mexico will not pay for the f—– wall.” Last October, Fox said “Donald, you suck so much at this job” and compared the president to a “worn-out baseball glove gripping a turd.” After the recent Florida high-school shooting Fox ramped up the rhetoric on HBO’s “Real Time” with Bill Maher.
“When you speak out of the White House this aggressive, violent language, when you discriminate, when you’re a racist, that’s what you get,” said Fox. “We need harmony, we need love, we need happy communities, and those concepts don’t come out of his mouth.”
And so on.
The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) has never been much interested in hosting honest discussion of the jihad terror threat. I was on a panel there in 2003, and in 2007 debated both Dinesh d’Souza and “moderator” Suhail Khan on Islam and the jihad threat (partial video here). I was on various AFDI panels while we were still able to have them there, but I haven’t been back since Suhail Khan flew into a hysterical rage at CPAC 2012 when I challenged him to debate, except for an appearance on Breitbart’s “Uninvited” panel in 2013.
Not only has CPAC consistently dissembled about the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat, but it has also shown a disturbing tendency to dance to the tune of the Left.
When a New York Times bestselling author noticed a blue-and-red flag flying near her home, she tipped off the local newspaper to report a “Confederate flag.” But there was just one little problem – it was a Norwegian flag.
The tip-off to the Seattle Times came from true-crime author Rebecca Morris. “Hi. Suddenly there is a Confederate flag flying in front of a house in my Greenwood neighborhood. It is at the north-east corner of 92nd and Palatine, just a block west of 92nd and Greenwood Ave N. I would love to know what this ‘means’… but of course don’t want to knock on their door. Maybe others in the area are flying the flag? Maybe it’s a story? Thank you.”
After last week’s tragic shooting at a Parkland, Fla. high school, tensions are high in classrooms across America.
A student at Oberlin High School in Louisiana was investigated and searched by police on Tuesday due to a conversation that arose when he and his classmates noted that the square root mathematical symbol resembles a gun, the Miami Herald reports.
Well that’s one way to get out of class.
