    Britain's Prince Charles has blamed climate change in part for the Syrian war and warned that global warming could exacerbate similar conflicts worldwide. Charles's comments — in an interview broadcast Monday — came exactly one week before the start of a United Nations climate change conference in Paris, where he plans to deliver a keynote address. Unless world leaders take action to slow the impact of climate change, "it’s going to get so much worse," Charles warned in the interview with Sky News, which was recorded before the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris. "Some of us were saying 20...

    NEARLY one in five British Muslims has some sympathy with those who have fled the UK to fight for ISIS in Syria. The number among young Muslims aged 18-34 is even higher at one in four. The figures emerged in our exclusive poll conducted after the Paris atrocities led by French and Belgian jihadis returning from the war zone. Prominent Muslims said the poll was a wake-up call. Labour London Mayor hopeful Sadiq Khan tells The Sun today: "It is clear that Britain needs to take its head out of the sand and act to tackle extremism and radicalisation at...

    Britain's Prince Charles has pointed to the world's failure to tackle climate change as a root cause of the civil war in Syria, terrorism and the consequent refugee crisis engulfing Europe. The heir to the British throne is due to give a keynote speech at the opening of a global climate summit in Paris next week where 118 leaders will gather to try to nail down a deal to limit rising greenhouse gas emissions. "Some of us were saying 20 something years ago that if we didn't tackle these issues, you would see ever greater conflict over scarce resources and...

    Britain will order four new nuclear submarines, Prime Minister David Cameron has announced at the Conservative party conference in Manchester. In a clear message to anti-Trident Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, the PM said four new submarines would be ordered to replace the existing fleet, which will be retired. In his first conference speech since the Tories won a parliamentary majority in May’s general election, Cameron used the occasion to present a strong opposition to Corbyn’s foreign policy stance, highlighting the importance of a strong nuclear deterrent. He told a packed hall that the nuclear deterrent is the country’s “ultimate...

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that the current threat level to Britain was at its second highest - severe - meaning that an attack is "highly likely". But it could be raised later, after intelligence is considered and the emerging picture from Paris is discussed at the government's Cobra emergency committee, he suggested.

    Four men have been arrested in raids across England over fears an ISIS-supporting terror cell were plotting on the dark web to kidnap British diplomats in an attempt to get their leader freed from a Norwegian jail. The North East Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU) detained the men after Italian officers swooped on a European jihadist network. Investigators said the network was trying to free Norway-based fundamentalist preacher Najmuddin Ahmad Faraj - also known as Mullah Krekar - who is listed as a terrorist by the United States and United Nations.

  • The Untold Mystery of Stonehenge

    Over the millenia, most people have wondered about the strange builders of Stonehenge and other megalithic remains in Europe. Irish tradition has it that Stonehenge was built by Blacks from Africa. This may seem unbelievable at first. However, Irish tradition mentions the Formorians, Black giants who came from Africa. Anyone can easily check on the Formorians. Scottish historian David MacRitchie, and English Egyptologist Gerald Massey have all claimed in their works that Blacks were the original inhabitants of the British Isles and that the Tuatha De Danaan and Firbolgs all belonged to the Black race.

Bahar Mustafa, 28, had posted a Tweet with the hashtag #KillAllWhiteMen. As so often, the police couldn't tell the difference between between a repugnant remark and an incitement to violence, and Ms. Mustafa will appear before magistrates next month. Now Ms. Mustafa comes across as a pretty unsympathetic character. She caused a fuss earlier this year when she banned men and white women from a student union event.

Ahead of his trip, Sir Hilary Beckles, chair of the Caricom Reparations Commission, has led calls for Cameron to start talks on making amends for slavery and referenced the prime ministers ancestral links to the trade...
