1. Becoming disabled by choice, not chance: ‘Transabled’ people feel like impostors in their fully working bodies
(Did someone ask, what happens when you replace psychiatrists with Marxist social workers?)
His goal was to become disabled.
People like Jason have been classified as ‘‘transabled’’ — feeling like imposters in their bodies, their arms and legs in full working order.
“We define transability as the desire or the need for a person identified as able-bodied by other people to transform his or her body to obtain a physical impairment,” says Alexandre Baril, a Quebec born academic who will present on “transability” at this week’s Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities at the University of Ottawa.
(I think I can see whats coming next. Barbara Streisand is going to come out as spokesman for the recently deceased (TARD. Tolerating all recently deceased) and insist that they be called ‘metabolically challenged’ and sue the makers of zombie movies for being racist. A publicly funded education campaign will be launched explaining that only a tiny minority of ‘culinary extremists’ among the MC eat the brains of the living and this must not be allowed to reflect on the rest of the decomposing community)
2. Israel now more allied with Egypt than America is
From Times of Israel:
Israel has been giving the Egyptian military a free hand to operate in northern Sinai against local jihadist groups, voluntarily ignoring an annex to the 1979 Camp David Peace Accords banning the presence of significant Egyptian forces in the area, an Israeli official told The Times of Israel on Thursday.
According to the military annex of the Camp David accords, Egypt is allowed to maintain a civilian police force only in the eastern strip of the Sinai Peninsula, where the majority of local jihadists are currently located. Following Israel’s disengagement from the Gaza Strip in 2005, the Egyptian army was allowed to deploy a border patrol battalion along the border with Gaza.
An official told The Times of Israel in 2014 that due to the challenges facing the Egyptian military in the northern Sinai, “In practice, the military annex is nonexistent.”
3. France Expelled 40 Radical Muslim Preachers Over Three-Year Crackdown
France has deported 40 foreign imams over the past three years, the government announced just days after a deadly terror attack at an American-owned factory near Lyon.
Ten of the clerics were expelled after the Charlie Hebdo attack in January, Christian news site Aleteia reports. Gunmen stormed the offices of the French humor magazine in retaliation for the magazine printing Mohammed cartoons.
French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve vowed to deport any foreign clerics preaching hatred. Authorities are investigating some mosques, and if found to be inciting terrorism, they will be closed, according to Cazeneuve.
4. UK’s First Female Sharia Judge: ‘We Can’t Ask Muslims Not to Have More than One Wife’
Britain’s first female sharia law judge has issued a brazen warning that flies in the face of UK law, stating that the “government cannot ask Muslims not to have more than one wife”.
The news comes on the back of a report by the Times newspaper which claims that Britain is experiencing a “surge” in Sharia marriages, as young British Muslims adopt a more hardline religious stance than their parents.
The Times reports:
“As many as 100,000 couples are living in such marriages, which are not valid under UK law, experts said. Ministers have raised fears that women can be left without the right to a fair share of assets if the relationship ends, while others are forced to return to abusive “husbands”.”
5. For Egypt, avenging Sinai attack may include striking Gaza
(Anyone think the leftists will send a flotilla to crash through Egyptian military checkpoints?)
Throughout the night, the echoes of explosions from the Egyptian airstrikes on various targets in the northern Sinai Peninsula could be heard on the Israeli side of the border.

From the moment it began fighting back Wednesday, the Egyptian army, as is its wont, has not hesitated to use all the means at its disposal. After Wednesday morning’s multi-tiered attack in Sheikh Zuweid, the aggressiveness of its military response is likely to outstrip that of any previous operation.
Anything that moves in the coming days in Egypt’s Rafah, Sheikh Zuweid, and El-Arish areas will likely become a target of Egypt’s F-16s and Apache helicopters, in part in a bid to protect its ground forces from danger.
Right now, the Islamic State fighters and Muslim Brotherhood fighters are likely rubbing their hands together gleefully, despite the rivalry between them. These two rival organizations found a common enemy in the form of the Egyptian government and its chief, President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.
But the public wants revenge for the attacks that killed dozens of soldiers, who enjoy a particularly high standing in Egypt.
6. Saudi policeman killed during security raid – SPA agency
DUBAI, July 3 (Reuters) – A Saudi policeman was killed on Friday in an exchange of gunfire during a raid to arrest a wanted person in the western city of Taif, the SPA state news agency quoted an interior ministry spokesman as saying.
The agency said three suspects had been detained and flags of the militant Islamic State group seized, along with gun silencers and computers.
Saudi Arabia last month announced a list of 16 people it said were involved in two deadly mosque bombings claimed by Islamic State in May and offered a cash reward of 5 million riyals ($1.3 million) for information leading to their arrest.
Thank you Bains, Maria J., M., Richard,
Tuesday this week I joined Red Fox Blogger on the Counter-Jihad network for the usual, ‘Last Tuesday of the Month’ update on a few issues. I was only able to join the first hour this week due to other commitments but for anyone who likes that sort of casual audio discussion on matters Islamic, Marxist and the implosion of civilization, here it is.
More news to be posted shortly.
In Boston we’ve had even more drills than usual. And that’s a lot, given such a compressed space for a city, all the major hospitals and population-dense university campuses.
Drills are such a part of life here, people seldom notice. But maybe they do on some level: ‘Is this another one of your crazy drills?’
The Boston Marathon Response
Why Did It Work So Well?
[…]This astoundingly high survival rate, despite the nature and severity of the injuries, is a tribute to the courageous and rapid response of bystanders and first responders, expert field triage, rapid transportation of injured persons, and the skills and coordination of the receiving hospital trauma teams. It is also, however, the product of a confluence of deliberate actions stretching back to September 11, 2001, augmented by a series of providential but not random events. Consider first the deliberate actions.
I just heard FOX News say that the massive police effort is because of credible threats to use chemical weapons in an attack today.
