David Cameron holds up
´bring back our girls´ sign

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 5/11/2014 9:43:58 AM

David Cameron said on Sunday that Islamic extremism has to be "tackled", as he held a "#Bring Back Our Girls" sign calling for the rescue of over 300 Nigerian girls kidnapped last month. "I think one of the things that really matters though is that we recognise this is not just a problem in Nigeria," Mr Cameron said. "We are seeing this really violent, extremist Islamism. We see it with problems in Pakistan, we see it problems in other parts of Africa, problems in the Middle East. Also, let´s be frank, here in the UK." Mr Cameron was speaking during

Comments:
Aaargh! Now Cameron is shown with the hashtag sign. Admittedly, the hashtag sign appeared to be shoved into his hands by that well-known objective reporter (/s) Christiane Amanpour, and I don´t really see how he could have gracefully declined. What clinches the notion that he wasn´t asked first is the self-satisfied grimace as Amanpour clenches her lips together immediately after she says, "There it is." ("There! Another one bites the hashtag!") To his credit, Cameron did make the point that Nigeria isn´t the only place where mass atrocities take place.

It is only extreme if you can prove that other Muslims oppose it. Otherwise it´s mainstream.

It´s the modern way. Badge, lapel pin, bumper sticker, bracelet, hash tag….The smug, superior, supercilious and superficial way for showing you care. Then basking in the warm after glow that you´re better than everyone else because you really, really care. Bollux!!

Hope this isn´t off the topic but when did the Pound sign become known as Hash Tag? The reason the Bokies kidnapped the girls is they oppose education for women. And they are scum. Holding up signs, holding hands, marching, demonstrations make people feel they are doing something to solve a problem. But it won´t work. If we had a president he or she would use our special forces to track the Bokies down and obliterate them. Unfortunately all the current resident of the White House can do is read something someone else wrote.

We mustn´t forget this is about preventing (Western) education for anyone, not solely for females. The translation of Boko Haram is fuzzy, but the term "Western education is forbidden" is often used. If you read the following excerpt from Wikipedia, you can see how and why the shortened form came about.

From Wikipedia:

The group has officially adopted the name "the Congregation of the People of Tradition for Proselytism and Jihad",[33] which is an English translation of Arabic[34] Jama´at ahl as-sunnah li-d-da´wa wa-l-jihad. . .

I should have noted that Amanpour stated (words to the effect) that "Boko Haram has been kidnapping (or attacking) girls for years." I don´t want to watch the video again for accurate wording, but the point is she didn´t mention babies, boys, men or women being subject to BH´s terrorism, only girls.

Makes me very suspicious of motives re overriding emphasis on females.

I can´t recall where I read it - it was years ago before I ever heard of these BH guys - that there is a certain element within Islam that believes everything you need to know is in the Koran. No other education is to be allowed.

Number of Americans calling illegal

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko    Original Article

The number of Americans who see illegal immigration as the nation´s most pressing problem has spiked from 3 per cent to 17 percent since May, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That percentage now tops government corruption, the U.S. economy, jobs, health care and every other hot-button issue, driven by a flood of tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children pouring across the U.S.-Mexico border. When Gallup announced the results of the same poll in two months age, ´immigration´ and ´illegal aliens´ ranked eleventh out of 47 issues, attracting a deep level of worry from fewer Americans than those

The surge of thousands of unaccompanied children illegally crossing the border from Mexico is being fueled by misperceptions about U.S. immigration policy rather than growing violence in Central American, according to a leaked report.

The White House refused to comply today with a subpoena issued by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee demanding that the president´s official political adviser testify before Congress. The president´s Director of the Office of Political Strategy & Outreach, David Simas, was scheduled to appear before the Oversight committee today to state for the record that his work does not violate a federal law that bans most executive branch employees from engaging in political activity. But White House Counsel W. Neil Eggleston sent a letter to the committee last night saying Congress doesn´t have the authority to require the president´s chief

Julian Assange sex case:
Warrant for Wikileaks founder upheld

A Swedish court has ruled that an arrest warrant against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange on charges of sexual assault will stay in place. Mr Assange, who denies the allegations, has sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London for the past two years to avoid extradition. If he is sent to Sweden, he says he fears charges in the US over the leaking of secret government documents. [Snip] "All in all, the district court makes the assessment that the reasons for the arrest warrant offset the infringement and adverse effects the measure entails for Julian Assange," Judge Lena Egelin said.

Dozens of protesters on both sides of the immigration debate showed up in a small town near Tucson on Tuesday after the sheriff said the federal government plans to transport about 40 immigrant children to an academy for troubled youths - but the kids never arrived. The rallies demonstrated the deep divide of the immigration debate. One group waved American flags, held signs that read ´Return to Sender´ and ´Go home non-Yankees´ and said they would block a bus that was supposed to arrive with immigrant children aboard. It turned heated at times, with shouting matches and a group of

Britain is to build the first spaceport outside of America by the year 2018, the government has announced. The facility will eventually enable tourists to take commercial flights to Australia in just two hours, but before that it will be used to launch British satellites. The government announced at Farnborough International Airshow that it has narrowed down the shortlist of sites to six in Scotland, one in Cornwall and one in Wales.[Snip] Space already makes the UK economy £11bn with everything from car navigation systems, to Sky TV to Satellite broadband for rural areas.

Israel has ordered thousands of Palestinians in eastern and northern Gaza to leave their homes as it continues air strikes. The warning came after an Egyptian truce initiative failed to halt militant rocket attacks on Israel. Hamas initially rejected the truce but an official later told the BBC it would consider a political solution. [Snip] The resumption of air strikes come after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he had "no choice" but to step up the military campaign. The Israel Defense Forces are using recordded telephone messages, warning 100,000 residents of Gaza to leave their homes before 08:00 (05:00

People who are most concerned about climate change use more electricity than those who believe it to be not so serious a threat, a government study has found. The Household Electricity Survey, commissioned by the Department for Energy and Climate Change, said that this discrepancy may be due to the fact that older people, who are most likely to not see climate change as a threat, are generally more frugal with their energy consumption: [Snip] However, even with over-65s removed, there is still only a weak trend suggesting that people who profess to care about the environment actually do more

A 38-year-old man was pronounced death at Askelon´s Barzilai medical centre after suffering severe shrapnel wounds from a missile fired on Tuesday afternoon, according to initial Israeli media reports.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
