1. Gazans show their contempt for the very air we all breath in their continued assault on the en’tire’ment at the Israeli border
It isnt just a war on the air. Its also a kinetic attack on Israelis.
3. A worthy contrast showing the difference between Trudeau’s reaction to a hoax by muslims and an actual assault on Catholic Churches on Easter.
New York City has reached a settlement giving Muslims a say in police training and policies, and the city agreed to pay mosques and businesses who said they were illegally targeted for surveillance because of their religion, Muslim groups said Thursday.
The groups said they’ve been targeted for years following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack, and they hope this settlement sends a message to the Trump administration to be careful about its own plans, such as the president’s travel ban.
The Muslim groups said roughly 20 mosques, two Muslim student organizations in New Jersey, 14 restaurants, two grade schools and 11 retail stores faced surveillance. Visitors and customers were photographed and undercover officers and informants infiltrated some of the organizations during a decade-long period.
The organizations sued, saying they were being singled out purely because of their religion. A federal district court ruled against them in 2014 but the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals stepped in a year later and said their lawsuit could proceed, comparing the surveillance to targeting of the Japanese during World War II.
(Might be a good time to mention that the Japanese had taken over half the world if you include the oceanic territory it controlled, and was intending to control the entire world, and did a sneak attack on pearl harbour with the intention of destroying and conquering the United States. Some surveillance of Japanese institutions, especially the motivating religious, Shinto ones, seems like a prudent course of action.)
5. “Knife crime” in the UK
(Artificially intelligent knives and guns which pick random targets or targets for their own reasons and then go killing them was clearly a bad idea. Same with AI bottles of acid. A big problem in London these days.)
Thank you all who left links. I finish this post in haste as there is such to do still.
