1. The UK continues its roller-coaster-to-fascism ride by empowering everyone, (especially Muslims it seems) to be able to interfere with the rights of others by a single complaint. In this one, a man was ordered to take down his Halloween decorations as it was too frightening for children. I wonder who might have made that complaint. Of course we will never know because the new totalitarianism, much like the old one, allowed any citizen to complain anonymously and have it acted on if the actions where in the interest of the state.

2. Inside the Ring: Russia to test new missile

(I predict Obama will have exactly as much success stopping this strategic threat as he will with Iran’s nuclear weapons program or protecting his ambassadors world wide)

3. European Jews hide identity more and more due to fear of antisemitism. (The surprise is how few blame Islam)

4. While this article on a publicly funded muslim school in the UK is damning in multiple ways the comments give some hope. As Softly Bob observes: “Muslim school, a complete failure, but what is interesting here is the comments. I didn’t see one politically correct reply. People are finally waking up.”

The question is, do they have time for a coffee and a stretch before they get down to doing something about it. The comments are encouraging though. (Iftikhar must be burning to paste some of his BS on this post)

5. Tommy Robinson: Double standards, not fear of diversity, provoked the EDL

6. A Polish imam has claimed an alleged arson attack on a mosque was ‘revenge’ for the Chief Mufti of Poland’s pledge to continue the banned practice of halal slaughter

(Let’s hope he is right. If the police will not enforce the law the public has to)

7. Turkey blows Israel’s cover for Iranian spy ring

The Turkish-Israeli relationship became so poisonous early last year that the Turkish government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is said to have disclosed to Iranian intelligence the identities of up to 10 Iranians who had been meeting inside Turkey with their Mossad case officers.

  1. 5/ The real coward is not the man who allows himself to be bullied without complaint, but the man who complains about those who wish to stop him being bullied, for fear of reprisals from the bully.

  2. US to sell weapons worth $10bn to UAE and Saudi Arabia

    The US department of defence has formally notified the US Congress that American arms manufacturers intend to sell more than US$10 billion (Dh36.7bn) in weapons to the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

    The intent to sell weapons to the two countries was first announced in April, but under US law the legislative branch of the US government must be officially informed of all foreign military sales by US defence contractors.

    That notification occurred on Tuesday and contains new details about the arms transfers. Congress now has 30 days to review the proposed sales.

    If no objections are raised, the UAE would be permitted to purchase $4bn worth of munitions and equipment, most of which would be used by the country’s F-16 fighter jets.

    The UAE deal includes 1,200 so-called joint standoff weapons, long-range missiles that allow aircraft to hit distant targets without entering enemy airspace, and 5,000 GBU-39B small diameter, or “bunker buster”, bombs.

    The sale will “improve the UAE’s military readiness and capabilities” as well as “reduce the dependence on US forces in the region, and enhance any coalition operations the US may undertake”, the defence department said in a statement.

    Under the department’s proposal, Saudi Arabia would be allowed to purchase $6.8bn in similar munitions and equipment, as well as $90 million in support services for its ministry of defence from the US military training mission located in the kingdom.

    Meanwhile, the defence department also said that Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, and Chuck Hagel, the US defence secretary, spoke by telephone on Monday.

    Mr Hagel told the crown prince that the US “intends to test the prospects for diplomacy” with Iran but Washington “remains firm in its commitment to the security of the region and to preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon”, said spokesman George Little.

  3. Russia testing new missiles isn’t what worries me, my worry is the way Obama has stopped so much US research and deployment of weapons to protect the US.

    Double standards are the stock and trade of the left.
