The Indian army says it has found a large haul of weapons in Indian-administered Kashmir where troops have been fighting “30 to 40 Pakistan-backed militants” for the past 14 days.
An Ontario school that feels Halloween is too exclusive an event has cancelled its holiday celebrations and replaced them with the toned down, more inclusive Spirit Day.
The Welland Tribune reported Port Colborne’s McKay Public School told parents last week that children in costumes were not welcome and instead recommended they wear black and orange clothing.
A Halloween dance was also cancelled, which angered some parents who felt their children were missing out on something really special. The Tribute reports that another school in St. Catharines, Ont., has also cut back on Halloween costumes.
Notice the language used. Halloween is only exclusive to those who refuse to participate. Otherwise anyone can be a part of it. The only group this vocal about it is Islam. So now its inclusive to not do anything which they don’t want you to do, or its not inclusive to do something muslims don’t like. It is a deep shame we perpetrate this kind of logic on ourselves.

5. There is a twitter rumour that the USA will suspend all aid to Egypt within a few days. This is interesting. They didn’t stop it at all during the whole year of Ikhwan atrocities. We shall see if this is true, but if it is, it should remove any lingering doubts about Obama’s loyalties.
Thousands of Islamist extremists in the UK see the British public as a legitimate target for attacks, the director general of MI5 has warned.
