    Video Leftist "human rights" group "Adalah" has called on the Justice Ministry to investigate the death of the Arab terrorist who murdered Police Officer Erez Levi last week. One of several officers present to supervise the demolition of the illegal Arab settlement Umm Al-Hiran in the Negev, Levi was standing with his comrades when Abu Al-Qia'an, 47, intentionally rammed into him. Other officers immediately fired on Al-Qia'an and killed him. The incident is defined as a terror attack, since video footage shows the terrorist driving with his lights off in the police officers' direction, then turning his lights on and...

It's really a great honor for me to be here today in the beautiful city of Koblenz, at a meeting of the ENF Group, in the presence of so many German patriots. And what you stand for is extremely important. Not only for Germany, but for all of Europe. Europe needs a strong Germany, a self-conscious Germany, a proud Germany, a Germany that stands for its culture, identity and civilization. Europe needs Frauke [Petry], instead of Angela [Merkel]!

    Big Brother is Watching YOU! Officials in Germany's Interior Ministry are urging Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière to establish a "Defense Center against Disinformation" (Ab­wehr­zen­trum ge­gen Des­in­for­ma­ti­on) to combat what they call "political disinformation," a euphemism for "fake news." "The acceptance of a post-truth age would amount to political capitulation," the officials told Maizière in a memo, which also disclosed that the bureaucrats at the Interior Ministry are eager to see "authentic political communication" remain "defining for the 21st century." One wonders whether by "authentic political communication," the officials of the Interior Ministry are referring to the way German authorities...

    Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m66k4WBCqA4 On June 5th, 1968, New York Senator Robert Francis Kennedy was shot and killed by Sirhan Sirhan, an Arab terrorist angered by Kennedy’s support for an arms deal to Israel. The assassination, which took place in the midst of the tumultuous 1968 Democratic primary season, came just two months after the murder of Martin Luther King Jr. and less than five years after the killing of Kennedy’s older brother, President John F. Kennedy. Often lost in the larger story of RFK’s assassination, however, is his pro-Israel legacy and the centrality of his pro-Israel views in Sirhan’s motive. On...
