Sweden’s Minister for Justice and Migration, Morgan Johansson, was uninjured in the attack in March this year, which took place as he visited a housing project for refugees in southern Sweden.
He was leaving the building when a man grabbed a fire extinguisher and sprayed foam over the minister, regional newspaper Kristianstadsbladet reported at the time.
Six illegal Iraqi immigrants who walked across the Quebec-New York border were arrested in Dundee, in the Montérégie yesterday.
A local farmer says he found them huddled in his barn.
The group consisted of three men and three women including a 70-year old woman and a pregnant woman.
La Presse reports that the issue of immigrants from Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan walking across the border has grown in recent months.
One farmer says on Tuesday of last week, it was a couple with a child.
Wednesday, a couple with two children crossed over and on Saturday a man walking alone was picked up by the RCMP.
The Border Services Agency says it does not know if more people are crossing illegally because it only keeps records for immigrants who come to Canada using official channels.
(How long till our governments take away our farms and homes for them? We know they will, the only question is when and what mechanism do we have to stop it?)

Five hundred police officers and 300 soldiers held drills along the Czech border with Austria on Wednesday as Prague mulled reintroducing border checks in case of a wave of migrant arrivals.
The Czech Republic is part of Europe’s Schengen passport-free travel zone, which has come under intense pressure as the EU struggles to cope with an unprecedented influx of refugees and migrants.
“We want to be as ready as possible for a quick reaction to a reintroduction of border checks,” Czech police chief Tomas Tuhy said on the police website.

BEIRUT/MOSCOW (Reuters) – Hundreds of Iranian troops have arrived in Syria to join a major ground offensive in support of President Bashar al-Assad’s government, Lebanese sources said on Thursday, a further sign of the rapid internationalization of a civil war in which every major country in the region has a stake.
Russian warplanes, in a second day of strikes, bombed a camp run by rebels trained by the CIA, the group’s commander said, putting Moscow and Washington on opposing sides in a Middle East conflict for the first time since the Cold War.
(In Stephen’s Ottawa brief he asked how many times you can hear on the news that moderate muslim troops trained and equipped by the US defected to the Islamic State with all that money, training and equipment before you can at the least expect that would be the outcome. Russia’s bombing of CIA trained troops was likely every bit as much a blow to the Islamic State than if they got the flag bearers and forward infantry of them)
(There will be much more on that over the next 48 I am certain)
Quebec immigration minister Kathleen Weil joined David in denouncing Islamophobia. She called the motion “a gesture of responsibility.”
And it’s a gesture to reassure people, not only Quebecers, but reassure newcomers and people who perhaps came a few generations ago,” Weil said.
The wearing of the niqab during the citizenship oath has become a hot topic in the federal campaign. NDP Leader Tom Mulcair, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and Green Party Leader Elizabeth May oppose the ban, while Conservative Leader Stephen Harper and Bloc Québécois Leader Gilles Duceppe support it.

Thank you Maria J., M., Richard, CB Sashenka and many more. How can anyone not say WW III is now pretty much past the exhibition game stage? I would say its well into the first quarter now at least, even if Classical civilization has blocked its ears and refused to hear the whistle. The next whistle they do hear, is likely to be a bomb.
(Yes I know bombs don’t whistle anymore but the point is valid)
