A quick note to readers.
Typically there is a kind of item that gets put into the posts. Usually things that deal with the effects of islam and left wing extremism on Western, Judeo-Christian or Greco-Roman based civilization.
Many of the readers of this site send in tremendously interesting links which are of a geopolitical nature, or various op-eds, or items pertaining specifically to Israel as well. Often these get posted because they are too big to ignore or will have direct consequences on the world familiar to Western European/North American residents in short order. But the fact is there simply isn’t enough time to properly read and post all that comes in which is of importance.
Since this site started something like 9 years ago, it has gone from having to do research to find news that supported the thesis that islam was an existential threat to civilization, to trying to filter a staggering amount of daily proof that this extinction of reason or Christianity or science as a way of life is taking place on a scale which cannot be considered less than genocidal in many locations.
So it is well worth it for those that want hard geopolitical stories as well as the usual material posted in the body of the blog to check the comments. There are a number of regular readers who focus on different aspects of the flaming world we now live on and it doesn’t take long to recognize their specialty, so you can read what interests you as you learn the names and types of links posted by them.
Also I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the people who work hard to search for that material and consistently post it to the daily links post and where relevant, under the various content posts as well.
On to some of the material:

3. Obama: ISIL strategy not failing
The whispers followed Muslim teacher Adil Charkaoui for months as young Quebeckers who crossed his path headed off to join overseas jihadi groups. Those murmurs suddenly turned into shouts when a member of the Parti Québécois called Mr. Charkaoui a “merchant of hate” and directly accused him of indoctrinating young extremists.
The arrest of 10 young people who police say tried to leave Montreal to join the terrorist group Islamic State has placed renewed scrutiny on Mr. Charkaoui, who became a religious teacher and leader of a community centre after years under surveillance and in detention as a terrorism suspect.
In the National Assembly, where members have immunity against defamation lawsuits, PQ MNA Agnès Maltais on Thursday said aloud what until now was limited to insinuation by Mr. Charkaoui’s hardline anti-Islamist critics. She accused Mr. Charkaoui of indoctrinating more than 20 Montreal youth who have left Quebec to join militant groups or were stopped by police as they tried to leave.
Each time Quebec youth try to leave “there is one point in common, one individual – Adil Charkaoui,” Ms. Maltais said. “What is going on at that centre? What is Adil Charkaoui telling the children who attend? How is it that children who attend his centre and hear his teaching have a sudden desire to join the Islamic State?”
WASHINGTON — The United States says legislation on population control approved by Burma’s Parliament is dangerous and could undermine the democratic hopes of minority groups.
State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke voiced deep concern Tuesday over the bill. He said it could provide a legal basis for discrimination through coercive and uneven application of birth control policies.
Human Rights Watch says the bill directs authorities to impose “birth spacing” restrictions. It would require a 36-month interval between each child and could allow forced contraception, the group said.
The bill is the first of four government-backed bills to “protect race and religion.” Human Rights Watch says the legislation has been championed by activists with a racist and anti-Muslim agenda.
6. A couple of items, a video and an article, which call into question Obama’s real agenda, or possibly his sanity. Article from The Atlantic
The Turkish Anadolu Agencyreported today that Erdogan’s henchman, Turkey’s Prime Minister, has made a promise today to his people that if they elect him next month that he promises to soon liberate Jerusalem. Ahmet Davutoglu was using words that are major hints for all students of Bible Prophecy:
After vowing to retake Jerusalem if elected, just as Erdogan did last week, Davutoglu stressed that his country “cannot be an ally or friend of those who desecrated the Al-Aqsa Mosque with their boots” referring to Israelis who had to thwart demonstrations. By this Davutoglu is accusing Israel of desecrating the Temple Mount since it is an abomination in Islam for anyone to enter holy ground unless they are barefooted. […]
Davutoglu then began to speak on martyrdom, how the forefathers remind them that the path of martyrdom is Jerusalem, and to liberate it they must return to their Ottoman dream:

WASHINGTON – The United States is willing to take in Rohingya refugees as part of international efforts to cope with Southeast Asia’s stranded boat people, the State Department said Wednesday.
Spokeswoman Marie Harf said early Thursday Thailand time that the US is prepared to take a leading role in any multicountry effort, organized by the United Nations refugee agency, to resettle the most vulnerable refugees.
Russian prosecutors have demanded that the country’s media watchdog block access to sections of Apple’s App Store and Google Play that allow Russian users to download the works of Adolf Hitler and Islamic writer Sa’id bin Ali bin Wahf Al-Qahtani, the Izvestia newspaper reported Thursday.
The move follows months of bluster by the watchdog, Roskomnadzor, over the hawking of “extremist” material to Russians by foreign Internet companies. But this time the threat is backed by a court decision that requires Roskomnadzor to act, Izvestia said.
If implemented, the blockages would be the first time Russian authorities have restricted access to the App Store and Google play platforms, the report said.
