1. Italy looks into the bogus pretences of a mosque application for a “storage space” that has the curious dimensions of a minaret.
2. Tom Quiggin interview on his new book, which I have, but have not read yet. Will publish review when I get a chance to read it.
This is a link to an interview from the author Thomas Quiggin – worth listening to??

(One wonders if the emphasis on the “deradicalization” program everyone insists on for Muslims and that was never done for Nazis, is a function of the Noble Savage and Blank Slate myths. The idea that because Muslims are mostly from non-European stock they cant really help themselves and their agency is not their own. So we have to allow for them to murder large numbers of us and then ‘help them’ get ‘better’, while Nazis of course, should have known better and suffer the full consequences of their actions.)
Jeremy Corbyn was a paid informant of the Czech secret police at the height of the Cold War, a former Communist secret agent claims.
Former spy Jan Sarkocy said he recruited the MP, codenamed Cob, in the 1980s.
Mr Corbyn was an ‘asset’ who knew he was working with the Soviet puppet state, Mr Sarkocy claimed.
Earlier this week it emerged Mr Corbyn had hosted Mr Sarkocy – who was posted to Britain as a diplomat under a fake identity – in the House of Commons.
The Labour leader insisted he had no idea Mr Sarkocy, who was actually working for the Czech secret police and was later expelled from Britain by Margaret Thatcher, was a spy.
Billionaire open-borders activist George Soros has demanded the European Union (EU) regulate social media because voters’ minds are being controlled and “manipulated”.
He claimed the size of social media firms made them a “public menace” and argued they had led people to vote against globalist causes, including electing President Donald J. Trump, in an article for The Guardian published Thursday.
The speculator, who runs one of the largest campaigning groups in the world and is noted for his interference in foreign politics and elections, said ultimately unregulated social media threatened democracy and the “integrity of elections”.
New media websites and populist groups have been prolific on social media, using the platforms to surpass mainstream media and promote causes Mr. Soros and his allies oppose.
(Soros seems to be using the old adage that ‘a half truth is the damndest of lies’ by modifying it thusly: ‘A half truth is the most effective of lies’ and proceeding on that basis. Clearly he is trying to gather and focus anger at social media by the general public because it biases left, and force it bias left farther. A classic ‘reflexive‘ move by Soros.)
Thank you Richard, M., Wrath of Khan, Xanthippa and many many more who sent in valuable and fascinating material explaining and exposing the facts on the ground today.
I don’t remember if there was anything on the gates of purgatory as written by Dante. But perhaps it should read:
“Hope ye in proportion to what ye do”.
Or perhaps that should be a sign just at the exit of the birth canal.
