The woman at the back is a caricature of some famous panelist on many well known TV shows. Her T shirt reads, “Fuck France” and she means it and she actually has said this. shirt on TV shows.

2. Muhanad Al Farekh – Another former MSA-Manitoba leader charged with supporting terrorism
A former University of Manitoba student has been charged with supporting terrorism after he allegedly left Winnipeg for Pakistan with two other suspects to join al-Qaida, according to an arrest warrant unsealed Thursday.
The allegations against Muhanad Al Farekh, a Texas-born U.S. citizen who lived with his grandmother in Winnipeg, date back to 2007 when he disappeared along with fellow Manitoba students Farid Imam and Maiwand Yar.
While Messrs. Imam and Yar, both Canadian citizens, were charged with terrorism offences in 2011 following an RCMP national security investigation called Project Darken, the indictment of Mr. Al Farekh was only unveiled this week.

3. Interview with Bat Ye’or at Israel National News
(It should be noted that Bat had predicted the rise of the Caliphate and much of the modern world many many years ago and was of course dismissed widely by nearly everyone at the time. Going with the logical conclusion that the model which has the best predictive value likely contains the most truthful value, Bat Ye’or is someone who people would be very wise to listen to)
The situation of Eastern Christianity is a tragedy of immense proportions. It entails human sufferings on a traumatic scale. Even those, like Egyptian President Sisi who would like to help, seem powerless in such dramaticcircumstances. As for the West, the ideological and strategic choices it made in the last century incapacitate it and obscure its understanding.
Natural disasters like tsunamis or earthquakes have spawned magnificent solidarity movements in the West, but the disappearance of a Christian population, of its two thousand old civilization and memory, moves no one. Maybe it is one more sign of Western decadence, of a deliberate policy of deleting Christian identity by choosing globalization and Islamization – a policy based on the rejection of Judeo-Christian values rooted in our actual Western culture of execration of Israel.
4. New York Times reports on the discrepancies between the Iranian and American versions of the agreement.
(I have a suspicion about the nature of this duality of perceptions on this deal and it is being researched now. For interested parties, they may wish to search for controversial aspects of the treaty signed between Jefferson and the Barbary Pirates)
5. Editorial on the most recent spate of claims that ‘islamophobia’ is tantamount to the kinds of persecution other groups have experienced in Canada/North America by prominent people who have clearly written more books than they have read.

7. Fifty three killed in Aden Yemen this morning alone
(I notice whenever these people are busy killing each other or everyone else, they always shout the same couple of words over and over. I wonder if we don’t need some kind of ‘Allah hu ackbar’ control or at least a long allah hu ackbar registry. I’m sure that would solve the problem. If we can just take away those words)
8. Yemeni fighters now in full control of presidential palace
9. Six Toronto muslims face murder charges in Toronto Canada
(It would be good if we still cared about truth instead of cultural Marxism and could do a study on violent crime and Islam as a proportion of the population compared to other groups)
10. Criminal record checks BANNED on foreign murderers and rapists who want to be minicab drivers if they have applied for asylum or refugees status
(Yet another reason why Uber is better than a taxi. I believe with Uber you can see a pic of your driver and know who he is in advance)
Asylum seekers and refugees applying to be minicab drivers are exempt from criminal records checks, potentially allowing murderers and rapists to get behind the wheel.
Rules laid down by Transport for London (TfL) mean refugees and those applying for asylum do not have to reveal whether they have a criminal history when trying to become a cab driver.
The legal loophole in an official application document on ‘private hire driver licensing’ says people coming to Britain will not be required to have their criminal convictions checked.
Asylum seekers and refugees applying to be minicab drivers are exempt from criminal records checks (file picture)
The form, seen by the Daily Express, states: ‘With regards to overseas criminal records checks, no such checks will be made in respect of those applicants who declare that they are in possession of or who have applied for refugee or asylum status.’
Thank you Oz-Rita, Mark L. Don C., Shabnam, M., Maria J. and all. Looks like its gonna be a busy news day. Check back soon.
4 – I hadn’t looked at the differences that way, I had been thinking that Obama was lying (like normal) about the deal and the Iranians were closer to the truth.
6/ That’s good news, even if the left isn’t about to engage in any sort of constructive self-criticism, not before hell freezes over. At least if provides some moral and intellectual support for the beleaguered right
3/ Discrediting and marginalizing Bat Ye’or across so many years has been a real achievement, they can feel very proud of themselves.
“Criminal record checks BANNED on foreign murderers and rapists who want to be minicab drivers if they have applied for asylum or refugees status ……”
(I wonder if Rotherham had a similar policy as taxi drivers were essential to ferry the victims efficiently to their abusers!)….. In the UK many taxi drivers have “school contracts” funded by county councils where pupils are taken by taxi too and from school.This includes particularly vulnerable groups including those young people with mental health issues and learning difficulties.
“Rotherham abuse scandal: Council plans new taxi rules”
“The Jay Report said more than 1,400 children were abused in the town from 1997-2013. It said taxi drivers played a “prominent role” in the abuse”……
“Among the proposed changes are more rigorous checks on past criminality”…..

I’m afraid there’s nothing we can really do to salvage Christianity in the Muslim world. The Muslim world is the way it is because it’s filled with Muslims. As soon as you replace/displace the Muslims with non-Muslims, you end up with a productive, stable, and mostly safe country (think Israel, and later Singapore). As long as there are over a billion people infected with the virus that is Islam, no kafir is safe among them. As far as I’m concerned all western immigration/refugee/asylum efforts for the next ten years need to be focused exclusively on extricating non-Muslims from the Muslim world, and then building (physically and through immigration/deportation policies) a firewall of sorts around the Muslim world.
Your right but our Quisling leaders will resist bringing any Christians while demanding that we pay to import millions of Moslems.
Some confusion here, so a quick explanation, more to follow.
Our friends at “Riposte Laique” (remember Christine Tasin, sued for saying “Islam is Crap”) are being SUED by the islamo-leftist Mayor of Paris (a truly despicable person in my personal opinion), Anne HILDAGO for that cartoon, which shows her, carricaturally, doing what she does in reality ie lick the feet of Islam, not to say kiss arse.
On the other hand, the 2 cartoons which you will find when clicking on the Link to “Riposte Laique” shows 2 cartoons from “Charlie Hebdo” – which the ‘fashionable dhimmy mayor of Paris, Mme Hildago very very much approved of. It sends up two CONSERVATIVE politicians:
Firstly Marine LePen – with caption reading: “I will shave my beard off”, suggesting that “she will clean up her party and shave off the Hitler Mustache it wore during the reign of her father”.
Second: it shows Sarkozy, former conservative president of France.
We are translating and subtitling a little video made by Riposte Laique and an article, to come in a few hours which will make it clearer.
