Female Muslim employees at the government building declared February 28 to be “Hijab Day” then systematically convinced nearly every female employee at work to don the traditional headwear to pose for pictures which were later posted to Facebook.

5. The Fascist Danger in Ukraine. Resurgence of Neo-Nazism Denied by Western Media

UkraineFascists

A politically sinister propaganda offensive is underway in the media to either deny the involvement of fascists in the US-backed coup in Ukraine or present their role as a marginal and insignificant detail.

The New York Times, for example, asserted, “Putin’s claim of an immediate threat to Ukrainian Russians is empty,” while Britain’s Guardian dismissed as a “fancy” claims that events in Crimea were an attempt to “prevent attacks by bands of revolutionary fascists,” adding that “the world’s media has [not] yet seen or heard from” such forces.

This is an obscene cover-up.

  1. Samantha power is an extremely nasty piece of work. And she’s married to another toe-rag, Cass Sunstein, a leftist Ivy League academic who believes that freedom of speech is an anachronism that should be abolished. Well, it seems they’re working on that.

    With respect to the Crimea, that is done, over, finished. It is now part of Russia again, and that is not changing, short of a full land invasion by western forces, which will never, ever happen. The result of the referendum is known, and all that’s left now is to cast the votes.

    The only remaining question is how much more of the Ukraine will the Russians take? With their military massing at the borders, it’s looks as if they’re in the mood for a party. Putin knows he can pretty much do as he wants, now. China will back him up. I can hear the Russians and Chinese laughing and clinking glasses together.

  3. Saudi demands Qatar shut down Al Jazeera

    Saudi Arabia demanded that Qatar shut down Al Jazeera and two think tanks during a recent meeting of the Gulf Cooperation Council, a source close to someone who attended the talks told AFP Friday.

    Riyadh demanded the closure of the pan-Arab broadcaster as well as the Brookings Doha Center and the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies, the source said on condition of anonymity.

    After the reportedly heated March 5 GCC meeting, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates recalled their ambassadors from fellow member Qatar, which they accuse of interfering in their internal affairs and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.

    The source said Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal had demanded three things of Doha — “to close the (Qatari-owned) Al Jazeera network, which stirs sedition; close the research centres in Doha, and turn over all outlaws” on its territory.

    Doha’s foreign minister replied that the demand constituted “interference in Qatar’s internal affairs,” the same source said.

    Gulf officials do not usually comment on closed-door meetings.

    Qatar is seen as a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates across the region, which are banned in most Gulf states.

    Saudi Arabia and other Gulf monarchies have long been hostile toward the Brotherhood, fearing that its brand of grass-roots activism and political Islam could undermine their authority.

    Saudi Arabia and the other two states accused Doha of giving refuge to opposition figures and of even giving some of them citizenship.

    Critics have long accused the influential pan-Arab broadcaster Al Jazeera of biased coverage in favour of the Brotherhood, and several of its journalists are on trial in Egypt for allegedly supporting the group.

    Most Gulf states hailed Egypt’s ouster of president Mohamed Morsi — a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood — and pledged billions in aid. Qatar, which had strongly supported him, has seen its influence in Cairo evaporate.

    The Gulf Cooperation Council includes Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Oman.

  4. Richard,

    Yeah, you’re probably right, but he may just stick with the bits that Kruschev (a Ukrainian) gave to the Ukraine. Let’s see how it pans out.

  5. Jordan protesters want peace treaty with Israel annulled

    Around 1,000 people demonstrated Friday near the Israeli embassy in Amman to protest the killing of a Jordanian judge by Israeli soldiers, demanding a peace deal between the countries be annulled.

    Israeli troops shot 38-year-old Raed Zeiter, a Palestinian-Jordanian, at a border crossing on Monday, saying he attacked them and igniting a diplomatic row between Israel and Jordan.

    Opposition Islamists, youth groups, leftists and nationalists took part in the demonstration that started after Friday prayers in Kaluti mosque, near the Israeli embassy in the Rabia neighbourhood in West Amman.

    Amid tight security, protesters waved Jordanian flags and banners reading “the people want to cancel the (1994) peace treaty,” and “shut down the Zionist entity’s embassy and kick the ambassador out for the sake of the martyr’s blood.”

    “Hundreds of militants have staged a multi-pronged attack on the northern Nigerian city of Maiduguri, witnesses say.

    On entering the city, the attackers split into smaller groups – heading for the barracks, the university and an area where civil servants live.

    The militants failed in an attempt to free colleagues held in the barracks, an army spokesman said.

    Militants suspected to be from Boko Haram have killed 500 people this year.

    Local residents say there was a heavy exchange of fire near Giwa barracks, as the military tried to fight off the insurgents.

    The air force was deployed and some suspected Boko Haram fighters were killed as they fled across a dry river bed behind the barracks.

    “They set many houses on fire and killed innocent people,” local resident Jamila Yusuf told Nigeria’s Daily Trust newspaper….”

    “A senior Islamist leader, who had a $3m (£1.8m) US government bounty on his head, has been killed in a French missile strike in the north-east of Mali, according to officials.

    He was reportedly killed earlier this month along with other militants.

    France began a military intervention in January 2013 after Islamists took control of the north of Mali.

    France is now winding down its troop presence in the country but says it will continue to deploy its forces against remaining pockets of militancy….”

    “Police in Spain and Morocco arrested seven suspected Islamist militants who recruited and sent fighters for al Qaeda terrorist organizations in Syria and Mali, Spain’s Interior Ministry said Friday.

    The suspects include a Spaniard and two Frenchmen who were arrested in the Spanish enclave of Melilla on Morocco’s north coast, a Tunisian arrested in the city of Malaga on the Spanish mainland and three Moroccans detained in Morocco, the ministry said.

    A ministry statement said it was, to date, “the most important” breaking of a cell said to be involved in sending Islamic militant fighters to Syria.

    The alleged ringleader of the cell, a Spaniard living in Melilla, Mustafa Maya Amaya, was detained. He had met in his home with two French citizens who were preparing to go to Syria to fight with al Qaeda-linked forces. They were also arrested and identified as Paul Cadic and Farik Cheikh, the ministry said…”

    “Gunmen opened fire on an army bus in Cairo Thursday, killing one officer and injuring three soldiers, Egypt’s state-run EgyNews reported.

    Islamist militants are expanding their insurgency in Egypt where army chief Field Marshal Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, who overthrew former president Mohamed Morsy of the Muslim Brotherhood last July, is expected to announce he will run for president.

    Militants based in the Sinai peninsula near the Israeli border have stepped up attacks on soldiers and policemen since Morsy’s ouster which came amid widespread protests against his rule. Morsy and other Brotherhood leaders were rounded up soon after.”
