Tunisia’s nationalist Nida Tunis party has formed a minority government that excludes most of the major players on the political scene, including Islamist and leftist parties.
The move was contrary to expectations the party would form a broad governing coalition to see the country out of its economic crisis.
(One must concede that running a democracy is difficult when people who’s central dogma is the destruction of both democracy and individual worth and liberty is sharing power in a democratic government)
(Just think how many we could repel if they allowed us all to defend ourselves. Hell we probably wouldn’t have to at all!)
Several Nigerian media outlets have been reporting on local women in the villages of Attagara and Kawuri in Borno State who recently disarmed nearly a dozen Boko Haram terrorists. The notorious pseudo-Islamic terror groups tried to attack the Attagara and Kawuri communities over the weekend but the insurgents were instantly repelled by a group of armed women.
The Attagara and Kawuri villages in Gwoza and Bama Local Government Areas of Borno State resisted the attack using an array of local talismans and, of course, their assault weapons came in handy as well.

Abdul Malik, the Excalibur’s feature editor, begins his op-ed by citing an example of religious fanaticism. An appropriate example of religion manifested as intolerance would have been the thousands of Yazidi women being raped and killed by ISIS or the decimation of Christian communities in Iraq and Syria, but it seems that because none of these events are connected to the Jews, they aren’t important.
Instead, Malik crafts his response to the Paris terror attacks by condemning the “ultra-Orthodox Jewish men who refuse to sit next to women on airplanes as per their beliefs…”. Never mind that Judaism does not forbid men from sitting next to women on airplanes whereas Islam certainly does condone the murder of those who blaspheme their prophet. According to the Excalibur, refusing a seat on an airplane is analogous to murdering journalists in the name of Allah.
A few sentences later, Malik makes the connection explicit: after describing the gunmen” (not terrorists) who murdered the 12 Charlie Hebdo journalists, he links together the actions of the Orthodox Jewish men and the Paris terrorists in a paragraph that decries the “defence[s] long held by those on the fringes of every faith”. This moral equivalency is heinous but it’s not a surprising statement from an editor who, in his entire op-ed about the Parris terror attacks, does not mention once that it was not only twelve cartoonists who were murdered but also four Jewish men at a kosher grocery store.
The (3) attackers, who appeared to be of North African descent, identified the boy as Jewish because he wore a kipah and tzitzit, according to the BNVCA report, which was based on the testimony of an eyewitness.
One of the assailants sprayed the boy’s eye with mace, or possibly pepper spray, before fleeing with the other two.

…In his defense, the Dane said that it was “an absurd accusation and a violation of [my] human rights.” He pointed out that he had written most of the postings in his own language, saying “If I had wanted to speak to an Austrian audience, I would have written it in Turkish. Of course, in the past I would have used German.”
