Iranian president Hassan Rouhani will pay a historic visit to France next week after being invited by François Hollande earlier this year.
But the run-up to the visit has been slightly marred by an apparent disagreement over the menu for a lunch that the two heads of state were supposed to share, French news site RTL reports.
Iran’s Rouhani has reportedly had to turn down a dinner invitation with French president François Hollande at the Elysée for religious reasons.
(The truly shocking thing is that the far left wing extremist French president who submits to Islam in every other way made at least a symbolic gesture of fealty to his own people, history and customs. Of course, this is likely not the last chapter. A phone call later today and another meal arranged under islamic terms but less publicized is quite likely)
THE HAGUE: The best way to deal with Europe’s growing refugee crisis is to close national borders to stop an “Islamic invasion”, Dutch anti-immigration politician Geert Wilders says.
As the popularity of his far-right Freedom Party (PVV) skyrockets amid Europe’s largest movement of migrants since World War II, Wilders has his sights set on becoming the next prime minister of the Netherlands in elections due in 2017.
“The only way to deal with it (the refugee crisis) is to regain our national sovereignty and close our national borders,” Wilders told AFP in an exclusive interview in the Dutch parliament.
“I’m not asking for anything strange, I am asking that our government close its doors as Hungary did …that we close our borders to those we consider to be migrants, not refugees,” he said.
(The fully repugnant bias of the article reveals itself in the description of Wilders as “Anti immigration”. One could say the exact same thing about the French who objected to the Nazis walking down the Champs Elysees)

While amid the mob of young ladies, Al Kassar was “rescued” by a white-clad officer and taken to a back room. Little did he know, however, that this was actually a “religious officer,” from the organization formally known as the “Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice,” and Al Kassar was being arrested.

A naïve and vulnerable schoolgirl was repeatedly raped and sexually abused as she was passed around 15 Asian males while she was just 13, a court has heard.
The ‘loner’ girl – who was aged 13 and 14 at the time – was allegedly attacked in car parks, parks and churchyards around Keighley, West Yorkshire, by 14 defendants, one of whom was 59 at the time.
The group of men even designated the girl a ‘corner’ in a disused police car park where they daubed her name in graffiti and forced her to perform sex acts.
During one sustained attack in a separate location, the alleged victim was raped by five men in succession. The court heard that the girl was so traumatised that she ‘could not recall what order she was raped in’.
Thirteen men and one teenager – who cannot be named for legal reasons – are now standing trial, accused of 28 offences. They all deny the charges.
Bradford Crown Court heard how the girl’s ordeal began when she started playing truant from school.
Aged just 12, she was befriended by local drug dealer Ahmed Al-Arif Choudhury, the court heard.
A trustee of a charity called the Ghulam Mustafa Trust has made a video in which he claims Jews track Samsung smartphones by implanting secret devices in the handsets.
In a development that sparked widespread outrage, the man who created and shared the footage has been allowed to continue to run the organisation by the Charity Commission.
This has raised serious questions about the nature of the charity as well as the rigour of the Charity Commission in preventing extremists from taking over institutions by stealth.
A teacher at a school implicated in the Trojan Horse scandal where staff were said to be forcing extreme Islamic policies on pupils is accused of leading anti-Christian chants at assemblies.
It is alleged pupils at Oldknow Academy were instructed to shout phrases denouncing Christianity by class teacher Asif Khan.
Mr Khan is claimed to have led children in chanting: ‘We don’t believe in Christmas, do we?’ and ‘Jesus wasn’t born in Bethlehem, was he?’
A teacher at Oldknow Academy (pictured) – a school implicated in the Trojan Horse scandal – is accused of leading anti-Christian chants at assemblies. Asif Khan is said to have had children shout ‘We don’t believe in Christmas, do we?’ and ‘Jesus wasn’t born in Bethlehem, was he?’
He is also accused of talking to the pupils about ‘hellfire’ and ‘prostitutes’.
A tribunal into his apparent behaviour heard that some teachers even walked out during the school assemblies, disgusted by Mr Khan’s supposed actions.
Migrants who arrived unannounced at an RAF base on Cyprus have been told they could be deported to their country of origin if they do not accept asylum on the island. The 115 Syrians came ashore in four boats at the RAF’s Akrotiri base last month and have one week to persuade authorities why they should not be sent back to their port of departure.
The warning of forced repatriation comes after officials stressed the British base will not be allowed to become a “new migrant route” to the UK or Germany.
(Even without the obvious, which is that if they admit to ‘more than 10,000’ it is likely a lot more than 10,000, we have this: Population of Sweden about 9.6M. In 2009, almost 7 years ago, Sweden had 500K muslims officially. It is a reasonable assumption that a high enough percentage of the migrants are muslims to loosely say ‘all’ for now. In one year at 10K per week we have another half million in a year and that doesn’t include the muslims in Sweden from between 2009 and now, or any of their offspring. At bare minimum this sets the Muslim population of Sweden at over 10% and most official estimates claim the numbers of migrants will rise, not fall.)
The latest figures from Migrationsverket show that 10,201 people applied for asylum in the Nordic nation last week.This group included 4,333 refugees from Afghanistan and 2,719 from Syria.More than a quarter of the asylum seekers were unaccompanied minors, with 2,827 children making the journey to Sweden without an older relative or guardian.The new statistics were released days after Sweden’s Migration Minister Morgan Johansson announced that due to the huge recent influx of refugees, the Scandinavian country could no longer guarantee beds for all new arrivals.“The urgent problem today is that the number of asylum seekers is increasing faster than the number of accommodation places,” he said at a press conference on Thursday.
