    Tbilisi, June 17, 2019 Two events were held simultaneously on Friday evening in front of the government administration building in Tbilisi, one led by LGBT activists and the other by defenders of the traditional family and traditional values, on the eve of the first Tbilisi Pride event scheduled for June 18-23. The two sides were divided by a cordon of police, reports Interfax-Religion. Georgia is a deeply traditional country, with more than 80% of the population belonging to the Orthodox Church, and the battle between traditional, Orthodox values and more liberal, secularized values is being prompted and aggravated not only...

    What is going on with the unending Brexit drama, the aftershocks of Donald Trump’s election and the “yellow vests” protests in France? What drives the growing estrangement of southern and eastern Europe from the European Union establishment? What fuels the anti-EU themes of recent European elections and the stunning recent Australian re-election of conservatives? Put simply, the middle classes are revolting against Western managerial elites. The latter group includes professional politicians, entrenched bureaucrats, condescending academics, corporate phonies and propagandistic journalists. What are the popular gripes against them?
  • Tons of Hizballah explosives in secret bomb factory uncovered in London

    JIHAD WATCH ^ | UN 11, 2019 8:37 AM | CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS
    UK: Tons of Hizballah explosives in secret bomb factory uncovered in London Terrorists with links to the Iran-backed militant group Hezbollah have reportedly been caught stashing tons of explosive materials in London. “The amount of ammonium nitrate reportedly found was more than that used in the Oklahoma City bombing” 24 years ago, in which at least 168 people were killed and over 680 others injured. This is merely a warning of more to come. The advancement of jihadists in the UK — and in fact most of the West — was facilitated by Leftist leaders who believe to this day...

    The Islamic Republic of Iran is involved in the illicit procurement of technology for weapons of mass destruction, the German intelligence agency for the northern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern wrote in its May report. In the 206-page report, that was reviewed by The Jerusalem Post, the intelligence agents wrote: “The fight against the illegal proliferation of nuclear, biological or chemical weapons of mass destruction and the materials needed for their manufacture, as well as the corresponding delivery systems [e.g. rockets], including the necessary knowledge, in cooperation with other authorities, is also the responsibility of counterintelligence.” The intelligence report continued, “From these...

    US-led forces have blown up three oil tankers in Syria as the United States increases its pressure on Syria by thwarting the oil trade between the PKK/YPG and the Assad regime, according to local sources quoted by several media sources. The strike was carried about by coalition planes, which hit three oil tankers, leaving four dead. The coalition has not yet made a statement about the attack. In the area controlled by Assad, oil consumption stands at around 136,000 bpd. Production, meanwhile, is only 24,000 barrels per day. This means that the regime must import significant volumes of crude oil...

    An institute whose experts have occupied key positions on EU and UN regulatory panels is, in reality, an industry lobby group that masquerades as a scientific health charity, according to a peer-reviewed study. The Washington-based, International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI), describes its mission as "pursuing objectivity, clarity and reproducibility,ť to benefit the public goodť.

    Emmanuel Macron will not attend the 75th anniversary of D-Day, "saying that French presidents only lead international D-Day ceremonies on round-number anniversaries such as the 60th or 70th. ... critics argue that he should make an exception this year as it is likely to be the last major D-Day anniversary while veterans are still alive." To Macron, who was born in 1977, D-Day must seem like ancient history. The French president is currently more interested in preserving his alliance with Berlin than in commemorating the reopening of the Second Front against Hitler a full three generations ago. It is probably...

    Hundreds of pro-Palestinian protesters snaked through the streets of the German capital on Saturday shouting anti-Israel slogans against the backdrop of rising concerns about anti-Semitism in the country. Of the 2,000 banner and flag-waving protesters in the al-Quds march some chanted “Child murderer Israel” and “Zionism is racism,” while others in the same protest expressed support for Palestinians with signs reading “Free Gaza” and “Palestine will be reborn!” At the same time, demonstrators sought to dispel accusations they were anti-Jewish by shouting, “Anti-Semitism is a disgrace.” The annual al-Quds Day march, or Jerusalem Day in Arabic, came as German officials,...
  • Merkel faces political turmoil in Germany as Social Democrats’ leader quits coalition

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s grand coalition government was plunged into turmoil Sunday when the leader of the Social Democrats resigned abruptly under pressure after her center-left party suffered a humiliating defeat in last week’s European Parliament elections. Andrea Nahles, the first woman to head Germany’s oldest party, announced she would quit as party chairwoman, parliamentary floor leader and even give up her seat in the German parliament after her attempt to snuff out a brewing rebellion over the party’s frightening slide backfired.

    Now, a story in the Sunday Telegraph is just the latest to pose serious questions. The newspaper reports that China has been "rigging" 5G equipment testing to discredit Huawei's rivals, including Nokia and Ericsson. According to government and industry sources, "Beijing is feeding secret details of security vulnerabilities" to the testers to tip the balance in Huawei's favor. The testing encompasses "hacking techniques used to check for weak spots... vulnerabilities discovered by China’s secret state hackers have been passed to the 5G testers to ensure Nokia and Ericsson’s equipment is found to be insecure." Huawei's security issues have always been...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel delivered a commencement speech to Harvard graduates on Thursday after being greeted with rousing applause when introduced as “one of the most respected and influential leaders of the postwar era.” Addressing students at the Ivy League school’s 368th commencement ceremony, Merkel began in English, yet quickly switched to German. Merkel, speaking through a translator, touched on a number of topics throughout the speech — beginning with her own upbringing in East Germany under the shadow of the Berlin Wall. The idea of the wall was one that she would return to throughout the speech. She would...

    No, the Greens did not surge in popularity. There are two "Green" coalitions, the European United Left-Nordic Green Alliance (EUL) and the Green-European Free Alliance (EFA). The EUL is the successor to communist parties; the EFA includes several ethnic minority and regional interests and is considered Center-Left. The EFA gained 17 seats, and the EUL lost 13... so the Greens gained 4 seats in a legislature of 751 seats. So the big story isn't the minor net gain, but the net movement of Green from hard Left to center-left. The big story on the Left is the further collapse of...

    CNN’s Christiane Amanpour praised Angela Merkel on Tuesday, cheering the “courageous, compassionate immigration policy" that has let over one million Muslims into the country. Conversely, she worried about the “dark old demons” returning in Europe. So what is the reality of Merkel's "courageous, compassionate" immigration policies? As even the lefty BBC has had to acknowledge, migrants may have "fuelled violent crime rise." And as the Express has reported about the immigrants, "Germany admits 75% face long-term unemployment and life on benefits." Meanwhile, poverty among elderly pensioners in Germany has "reached a historic high." Get the rest of the story and...

    Rise in anti-Semitism making it dangerous to display religious symbolJewish men and boys in Germany should think twice about wearing skullcaps in public, Germany’s top official against anti-Semitism said Saturday. Felix Klein, Federal Government Commissioner for Jewish Life in Germany and the Fight against Anti-Semitism, said he wouldn’t advise Jews to wear skullcaps in parts of the country. “My opinion has unfortunately changed compared with what it used to be” on the matter, Klein said in an interview with the Funke newspaper group. “I cannot recommend to Jews that they wear the skullcap at all times everywhere in Germany.” The...

    Muslim who murdered Jewish pensioner Sarah Halimi will not face a criminal trial The claim seems to be, “the marijuana did it”, ignoring his previous anti-Semitic taunts, his screams of “Allahu Akhbar” during the actual killing, being pictured smiling with a mein kampf. Now considered unfit to stand trial. Clearly Kobili Traore had been practicing Islam to the letter: Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar: I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “The Jews will fight with you, and you will be given victory over them so that a stone will say, ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew behind me; kill him!’ ” Sahih...

    Each friendship is special. Some are powerful. And then there is a bromance made in conservative heaven: Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu. This week, Netanyahu announced that a new community being built in the Golan Heights will be named after Trump in gratitude to the U.S. President for his historic recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over the territory, which Israel has considered its own for the past 52 years. “I’m here on the beautiful Golan Heights. All Israelis were deeply moved when President Trump made his historic decision to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Therefore, after the Passover...

    Liberals call anyone they don't like Hitler, so often that we have to remind ourselves that there really are monsters out there. One of them is Turkey's strongman Recep Erdogan, who marked the remembrance day for the nearly two million Armenians butchered by the Turkish army and their auxiliaries at the end of World War I. Hitler declared in 1939 that he could kill the Jews because, "Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?" The Armenian genocide was massively reported at the time by U.S. and other foreign diplomats and comprehensively documented by historians. Despicably, Erdogan...
