Breaking: Muslim school´s policy of segregating
boys from girls is unlawful sex discrimination,
Court of Appeal decides in landmark ruling

Daily Mail [UK], by Scott Campbell

An Islamic faith school´s policy of segregating boys from girls is unlawful sex discrimination, Court of Appeal judges have today ruled. Three Court of Appeal judges in London overturned last year´s finding by a High Court judge that Ofsted was wrong to penalise the mixed-sex Al-Hijrah school in Birmingham. Inspectors had found that separating the pupils - to the extent that they were forced to walk down different corridors - left them ´unprepared for life in modern Britain´. Ofsted also discovered that the school kept ´offensive´ books in the library which advocated wife beating and forced sex – a fact the school was

Well isn´t that interesting, two leftist positions in a head on collision.

This will happen more and more as the left gains control because their ideology isn´t based on any consistent value system.

You can´t have unbridled "tolerance" and at the same time disallow offending anybody´s sensitivities. Funny thing, some people believe in things in direct conflict with what others believe.

Just slap COEXIST bumper stickers on all the care in the parking lot and problem solved.

I place my bet -- Islam is the irresistible object over there, and the feminists will discover they ain´t no immovable force. In the Gaian hierarchy, "color" (broadly conceived in the case of Muslims, who of course are of all "colors")) trumps gender. Look to see this ruling rescinded.

I have always liked the idea of separte schools for the sexes-but it should start at 8th grade. Before that children should see each other as friends. Muslim boys need to see girls as people equal to themselves and this would go a long way in beginning that revelation. But surviving puberty and living in a highly sexed Western culture would benefit separating pre-teens and teenagers. And school uniforms! That is for all kids not just Muslims.

Back and forth it goes. President Trump says he had it in the bag, but turned it down, so far as being named TIME magazine’s person of the year, 2017. Never happened, say the magazine’s editors. Trump was never in the running. Why Trump cares about this in the first place is a mystery. In case he forgot, he was last year’s choice. Anyway, he is the president for the next four years…and hopefully the next eight years…so what’s the big deal? I mean, who cares about 2017? It’s been a rotten year. Best forgotten once it’s gone.

The FBI said on Saturday that it was inundated with over 200,000 requests for background checks for gun purchases on Black Friday – setting a single day record. The bureau said that it received 203,086 requests for background checks on Friday, smashing the previous all-time single day record of 185,713 in 2016 and 185,345 in 2015. Those records were also set on Black Friday, according to USA Today. Background checks are required for anyone seeking to purchase a gun at a federally licensed dealer. While the number of requests for background checks is high, the number of guns sold is

A criminal justice college in New York City is embroiled in a battle with the Pentagon over exhibiting and helping to sell artwork by suspected al Qaeda terrorists at Guantanamo Bay. John Jay College of Criminal Justice is displaying 36 pieces of art by Gitmo detainees but the Department of Defense wants the paintings and sculptures destroyed. The school is funded by tax payers. Families of 9/11 victims were particularly upset to learn about the artwork. ´I can´t understand how this college in particular would allow such a thing. Where´s their decency?

Andy Murray might not be best known for his sense of humour but he demonstrated his funny side with a hilarious tweet aimed at Donald Trump. The US President took to Twitter late on Friday to claim that Time Magazine was planning on making him their Person of the Year again. He wrote: ´Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!´ The claim

Theresa May is considering giving the European Court of Justice a role in Britain once it has left the EU. The Prime Minister has held talks about a potential referral system to the ECJ for European citizens who remain in the UK. Judges in the UK would refer cases to Luxembourg should queries crop up that have not been addressed during Britain´s membership of the EU. Theresa May discussed the idea at a meeting of her inner Brexit Cabinet on Monday, The Sun reported. One senior Government source said the solution would be a ´good compromise´ and could represent a significant breakthrough in

EGYPT’S military has launched airstrikes against the Palestinian city of Rafah following yesterday’s shocking massacre, reports claim. The airstrikes come after Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi vowed a response with “the utmost force”. Airstrikes were also launched against targets in nearby mountains. The attack was launched against a mosque in the town of Bir al-Abed which was bombed before the fleeing worshippers were shot. More to follow…

Linda Tripp, a former figure in the Monica Lewinsky scandal, is lashing out at those who are only belatedly condemning Bill Clinton for his conduct, having herself long ago concluded he was a ´predator.´ The string of headlines about powerful men abusing their status and harassing women ´is forcing me to relive a lot of it,´ said Tripp, who befriended Lewinsky and then recorded conversations about Lewinsky´s affair with the president and handed over information to prosecutors. Trip spoke after recent criticism of former President Bill Clinton by some Democrats – including New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who says Clinton

Men and women don’t speak the same language. That’s become so obvious these past few months. The scandal that erupted with Harvey Weinstein, or rather Bill Clinton, so far as inappropriate behavior towards women, has now snared comedian Louis C.K., newscaster Charlie Rose and U.S. Rep John Conyers, to name but two of the mighty that keep falling. We’re in the middle of an epidemic here in the United States featuring men who do no not know how to talk or act around women. That’s about all the nation is talking about, men behaving badly, and wondering whose ticket for ruin comes up

Referring to attempts to make a peace deal with Nazi leader Adolf Hitler before the outbreak of the Second World War the Crown Prince appeared to rule out peace.

NORTH Korea has switched out ALL border guards at the demilitarised zone (DMZ) with South Korea as a furious Kim Jong-un comes to terms with this month’s humiliating defection. North Korea suffered acute embarrassment on November 13 when a border guard fled first by jeep and then on foot across the joint security area (JSA) with South Korea. The defector, identified only by his surname Oh, sped in a jeep towards the South before losing control and crashing into a ditch. He sprinted the final few metres as North Korea guards opened fire. Now those border guards are believed to be taking

It´s that time of the year again. That´s right - it´s time to hide your Thanksgiving turkey before your four-legged friend finds it first. Despairing dog owners in the US have been shaming their greedy pooches on social media with signs detailing their crimes.

President Donald Trump in his Thanksgiving Day address to the nation has suggested that enthusiasm in America is at an all time high right now. Trump posted his four-minute video on Twitter on Thursday during which he recounted the tale of the pilgrims traveling to North America, praised the military and beefed up his administration´s accomplishments. ´We are doing something very special... people are feeling it,´ Trump said toward the end of his speech. ´The enthusiasm in this country has never been higher.

WASHINGTON — Of all the State Department employees who might have been vulnerable in the staff reductions that Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson has initiated as he reshapes the department, the one person who seemed least likely to be a target was the chief of security, Bill A. Miller. Republicans pilloried Hillary Clinton for what they claimed was her inadequate attention to security as secretary of state in the months before the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya. Congress even passed legislation mandating that the department’s top security official have unrestricted access to the secretary of state. But in his first

Time magazine is already celebrating their Best of 2017, and their favorite "Non-Fiction" book of the year is....Hillary Clinton´s campaign memoir What Happened. Time assistant managing editor Claire Howorth gushed, "Clinton offers one answer to the question that rang collectively from more than half the country on Nov. 9, 2016. The writing is frank, reflective and a piece of modern history." It came complete with buying instructions from Amazon, and Hillary Clinton quickly tweeted out how "honored" she was: "I loved writing this book, & I’m honored to be in such great company on this list!"

For more than five hours, Attorney General Jeff Sessions sat in a hearing room on Capitol Hill this month, fending off inquiries on Washington’s two favorite topics: President Trump and Russia. But legislators spent little time asking Sessions about the dramatic and controversial changes in policy he has made since taking over the top law enforcement job in the United States nine months ago. From his crackdown on illegal immigration to his reversal of Obama administration policies on criminal justice and policing, Sessions is methodically reshaping the Justice Department to reflect his nationalist ideology and hard-line views — moves drawing comparatively

Recent pics of Malia Obama showed her kissing a tall, athletically-built white male who was most likely a fellow university student. It seems normal enough, right? She’s a young woman, he’s a young man – so what’s the problem? Well, apparently many in the Black community find what she did to be an appalling act of…racism. The onslaught of negativity directed at the daughter of the former President is both shocking and troubling. Why do so many choose to see the world through the narrow prism of color and then demand that color requires one to never deviate from their “rules”

True to the theme that he’s been nationally talking about – or rather, taking a knee for – since last summer, former 49er Colin Kaepernick attended an “Unthanksgiving Day” celebration on Alcatraz Island. The Indigenous Peoples Sunrise Ceremony, held annually on Thanksgiving since 1975, commemorates the survival of Native American peoples following the settlement of Europeans in the Western Hemisphere. Kaepernick began making headlines in August when a photographer spotting him sitting during the national anthem. He told reporters that he sat, or took a knee, because he was fighting to combat the oppression of people of color and ongoing issues

SAFETY HARBOR — A pregnant 22-year-old had to stab her family dog to death after it "turned" on his owners Friday, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. Sierra Willson stabbed the dog after it began viciously attacking two other dogs and then its owners, including Willson’s mother, Heidi Cooper, 45, and her sister, Meaghan Tokay, 14. Buster, a pit bull, was known to be aggressive and kept away from two other dogs in the home at 765 West Gate Drive in Safety Harbor, said Sheriff’s Office spokesman Spencer Gross.

But it’s not just the political, corporate and entertainment titans of today who are being called out; many sins of the past are being re-examined in the context of our new sensitivities regarding gender relations.(Snip)However, one prominent name has managed to stay off of our radar, and I don’t know why.
