It´s time to stop infantilising
the Palestinians

Telegraph [UK], by Alan Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 6/21/2014 7:34:32 AM

The jubilant reaction of many Palestinians to the kidnapping of three Israeli teenage boys has been met in the West with a bit of a shrug. The official daily PA newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida has published cartoons mocking the three students and celebrating their capture. The Fatah Facebook page featured a cartoon of three rats dangling from a line. Sweets have been handed out on the streets (a traditional gesture of joy and celebration). Many children have been photographed by their parents, holding up three fingers and smiling. An internet campaign gathers pace and “popular support for the abduction has continued

These are people who wouldn´t have indoor plumbing to use without using facilities their ´enemy´ the Israelis installed. Billions of Arab oil dollars and they still live like Cro Magnon Man.

If the west really wanted peace in that area there is one simple step that will bring it: cut off the money we give to the Palestinians. They have no source of income other than what the west gives them...cut it off and watch a change in attitude.

The Palestinians celebrate the misery they cause Israel after each and every incident, just as the Islamonuts in Dearborn danced in the streets after 3,000 Americans were killed in the WTC. No mature people would randomly shoot rockets into their neighbors´ backyard and kill their children. This is immature, infantile behavior and should be called what it is. It´s not so much the nationality as it is the religion that makes them brain-dead emotional animals. They are parasites to Israel and if the host is destroyed, they will die also but they can´t think that far ahead.

This kind of uncivilized behavior is why the rest of the Arab world won´t take them in. It´s also why they pushed them out decades ago.

Iraq crisis: Baghdad´s Shia militia
in defiant 50,000-strong rally
as Isis make further gains
Telegraph [UK], by Colin Freeman    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 6/21/2014 6:46:11 PM     Post Reply
Baghdad´s biggest Shia Muslim faction staged a show of force in face of the Isis threat to the Iraqi capital on Saturday, in a parade that stretched for several miles, featuring missiles, bazookas, hi-tech assault rifles and artillery. As tens of thousands of uniformed men marched through the streets, loudspeakers proclaimed how they would defend Iraq from the Sunni jihadists rampaging through the north of the country. This pageant of armed might, however, was not an official Iraqi army display to reassure an anxious public. Instead, it was a mass show of force by the Mahdi Army, the vast Shia militia that is

When future generations try to understand how the world got carried away around the end of the 20th century by the panic over global warming, few things will amaze them more than the part played in stoking up the scare by the fiddling of official temperature data. There was already much evidence of this seven years ago, when I was writing my history of the scare, The Real Global Warming Disaster. But now another damning example has been uncovered by Steven Goddard’s US blog Real Science, showing how shamelessly manipulated has been one of the world’s most influential climate records,

As the Isis offensive on Baghdad rages on, take a look at our daily updated Iraq crisis map to see where the latest frontline fighting is taking place. The above map shows the situation as of June 21. Areas shaded in red are under the Sunni jihadists´ control, while the yellow shaded area is controlled by Kurdish pershmerga fighters. The contested roads to Baghdad, which Isis has pledged to seize, are shaded in red stripes.

If I have learnt one thing working with children as a teacher, a volunteer and, more recently, a parent, it’s that what children want above all else is to fit in. The desire not to be different must be hard-wired, so urgent is the need of your average nine-year-old to have the same pencil case as every other nine-year-old. Individuality, much prized in adult life, is abhorred by our conservative juniors, who crave acceptance as the thirsty crave water. “Fitting in” is braided into the DNA of every child, regardless of creed or colour. When the deep, resonant bell of

Iraq crisis:
Isis allies ´turn on jihadists´ as 17
killed in clashes near Kirkuk - latest
Telegraph [UK], by Telegraph Foreign Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 6/21/2014 6:56:23 AM     Post Reply
Sunni militants who fought together to capture swathes of Iraqi territory have turned their weapons on each other during clashes in Kirkuk province that cost 17 lives, according to reports. The fighting erupted on Friday evening between Isis and the Army of the Men of the Naqshbandiyah Order (JRTN) in Hawija, in Kirkuk province, sources told AFP. There were differing accounts as to what sparked the firefight, which is a potential sign of the fraying of the Sunni insurgent alliance that has overrun vast stretches of territory north of Baghdad in less than two weeks. One security official said JRTN fighters

Iraq crisis: Shia militia show
of force raises tensions
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article

Thousands of Shia militia loyal to the powerful cleric Moqtada al-Sadr have paraded through the streets of Baghdad, raising sectarian tensions amid continued fighting in areas of Iraq. The cleric, whose Mehdi Army fought the US in Iraq for years, had called for a military parade across the country. Correspondents say the show of force will be seen as a very disturbing development by the Baghdad government. Sunni extremists have seized control of large swathes of territory across Iraq. On Saturday, the militants--led by jihadist group Isis--were reported to have seized a strategically important border crossing to Syria, near the town of Qaim, killing

Court confirms Egypt Muslim
Brotherhood death sentences

An Egyptian court has confirmed death sentences for 183 Muslim Brotherhood supporters accused of a 2013 attack on a police station, lawyers say. A judge had recommended the death penalty for the 683 defendants, in a widely-criticised mass trial in April. Mohammed Badie, leader of the banned group, was among those whose sentences were upheld. Appeals are now likely. The military-installed government has sentenced at least 1,000 of its opponents since December. Authorities have cracked down harshly on Islamists since former President Mohammed Morsi, who belongs to the Muslim Brotherhood, was removed by the military in July 2013 following mass

When the Chinese premier visited London this week he was greeted with an honour guard, a Downing Street reception and a meeting with the Queen. But one aspect of Li Keqiang’s welcome fell somewhat short in the eyes of Chinese officials – the red carpet rolled out for his arrival at Heathrow. After plans for Mr Li’s visit were shown to the Beijing government, aides complained that the carpet leading from the steps of his plane was not long enough. ‘They saw a diagram of the arrangements at Heathrow and complained that the carpet was three metres too short,’ said one of

Margaret Thatcher and the

Telegraph [UK], by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 6/20/2014 7:27:22 AM     Post Reply
The problem with socialism,” said Margaret Thatcher, “is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” It is one of her many aphorisms that so irritate the Left because it not only has the merit of being true but is provably so: just look at the record of the Labour government. It is more than a political slogan, however: it captures the essence of her belief in individual liberty and disdain for state paternalism. Her ambition was to give people back control over their own lives. Yet while this view of the world is one that many today take

Australia to stop ´killer´ jihadists

Australian jihadists fighting overseas who are "trained killers" and "hate our way of life" should be stopped from returning home and detained if they do, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said on Friday. Australia has concerns that its citizens are fighting alongside Sunni militants in Iraq and Syria, including with the radical Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group. [Snip] "And if they do come back into our country they are taken into detention because what we can´t have is trained killers--who hate our way of life, who hate us--making mischief with the potential to cause mayhem in our country."

I have been listening all week to TV pundits lamenting that Lois Lerner’s hard drive has been destroyed, and therefore her e-mails are lost. This is simply not the case. I never cease to be amazed at the lack of understanding of how the e-mail system works. When you write an e-mail, it goes to your server to be sent to the person you e-mailed. Your server keeps a copy of that e-mail, and of all your e-mails – sent and received. When you create all the folders in your e-mail program that you use to save e-mails in...these are also

It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits, and stunned Americans say, “That´s outrageous!” “He can´t do that!” “No way!” “It´s against federal law!” “They have no legal authority to force us to do that!” These comments are in response to the daily unprecedented out-of-control tyranny handed down by Obama and his operatives. We are talking arrogance with a capital A coming out of the Obama administration. For example: the GOP was moving too slow in caving to Obama´s amnesty scheme, so Obama said, Heck with it, I´ll bypass everyone and make it happen. Obama sent a

The Obama administration’s claim to have been surprised by the wave of children flooding over out borders may turn out to be another political lie of the year. Sundance of Conservative Treehouse noticed a very peculiar advertisement: On January 29th of this year, the federal government posted an advertisement seeking bids for a vendor contract to handle “Unaccompanied Alien Children“. Not just any contract mind you, but a very specific contract – for a very specific number of unaccompanied minors: 65,000. • Why would DHS and ICE be claiming “surprise” by the current influx of unaccompanied minors on the border

WASHINGTON -- The commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service refused to apologize to Congress for losing e-mails related to its targeting of conservative groups, saying it´s still attempting to recover the data and it´s too soon to know how many e-mails are missing. "I don´t think an apology is owed," Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways and Means Committee. "Every e-mail has been preserved that we have." In his most contentious hearing since becoming commissioner six months ago, Koskinen testified about efforts the IRS has made to recover e-mails that were lost when Lois Lerner´s computer hard drive crashed

Call it Paul Ryan’s finest hour. It’s a video of the congressman from Wisconsin confronting the commissioner of Internal Revenue over the missing Lois Lerner emails. It’s easy to see why the clip is going viral on the Web. It is one of those rare moments when Congress loses its temper and a major figure says what the American people are thinking. They don’t believe Commissioner John Koskinen is telling the truth. They don’t believe him. Mr. Koskinen protested. No one believed that either. Mr. Ryan’s ire was triggered by the suggestion of one of the Democrats that Mr. Koskinen

President Obama told his Mexican counterpart in a phone call Thursday that immigrants crossing into the U.S. illegally won’t qualify for legalized status or deferred deportation, including children. The White House said Mr. Obama and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto discussed “a regional strategy” to address the surge of unaccompanied children coming from Central America, through Mexico, to the U.S. With thousands of children trying to enter the U.S. illegally in recent months, Vice President Joseph R.

The unfolding sectarian violence in Iraq is just the latest crisis where the Obama administration seemingly has been caught off guard. From the Veterans Affairs scandal to Russia´s swift annexation of Crimea, news of the world somehow keeps taking the commander-in-chief and his team by surprise.

The U.S. is leading by example in promoting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) rights at home and around the world, Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday. He said the federal government recognizes same-sex marriages of foreign diplomats stationed in the U.S., and it expects all other countries to do the same in their treatment of U.S. personnel deployed abroad. “Let me be clear: We oppose any effort by any country to deny visas for spouses of American staff,” he said. “It’s discriminatory, it’s unacceptable, it has no place in the 21st century.”
