    LONDON (AP) — The U.K.'s first female Muslim Cabinet member resigned Tuesday in protest of the British government's policies on Gaza, describing the approach as "morally indefensible" and detrimental to the national interest. Sayeeda Warsi, a Foreign Office minister of Pakistani descent, announced her departure on her Twitter feed. The move apparently took Downing Street off guard, and loaded more pressure on Prime Minister David Cameron, who is under fire by the opposition and members of his own party for his staunch support of Israel.

    A British minister who was the first Muslim woman to sit in the Cabinet has resigned over the British government's policy on Gaza, she said Tuesday. Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, a minister at the Foreign Office and minister for faith and communities, wrote on Twitter: "With deep regret I have this morning written to the Prime Minister & tendered my resignation. I can no longer support Govt policy on #Gaza." Warsi's parents were Pakistani immigrants and she was made a member of the House of Lords in 2007.

    China has endorsed Argentina's position over the Falkland Islands affirming that the current situation "seriously harms the economic capacity of Argentina". During the two-day G77 summit held at the weekend in Santa Cruz, Bolivia at which China was a "special invitee", a statement was unanimously approved supporting Argentina's calls for dialogue to solve the "Malvinas Islands question".

    English schoolchildren will be taught “British values” in the wake of a report that some schools had been taken over by Islamists. Michael Gove, the education minister, said that in future all of England’s 20,000 elementary and high schools will have to promote British values of tolerance and fairness. The announcement came in the wake of the “Trojan horse” scandal which found that some schools in the central city of Birmingham had been taken over by Islamists. Regulator the Office for Standards in Education said Monday it had found a “culture of fear and intimidation” at a minority of the...

    Conservative Party Leader David Cameron is trying to sabotage UKIP’s influence at the European Parliament, just days after trying to appear sympathetic to euroscepticism by telling the British people that their message at the polls was “received and understood.” Instead of accepting UKIP's victory, Cameron has started a drive to cut off the legs of “the people’s army” in Brussels and Strasbourg. He has assigned Conservative Party fixers to do deals with hard-right and populist parties which, until now, the Conservatives claimed were “unacceptable.” The Tories are trying to stop Nigel Farage from forming a political group in the parliament...

There were some in the West – but not all – who saw the light as well. British Prime Minister David Cameron has ordered a comprehensive review of the movement,... its activities in Britain and its impact on the country’s interests. The decision was made because the Brotherhood is allegedly behind terrorist operations in Egypt, and because...

He urged Britain to play a leading role in standing against religious persecution and highlighted three focal points: The first is to expand the role of faith and faith organisations in our country. This has been a consistent theme of this government; I’m sure there’s more we could do to help make it easier for faith organisations…. Second thing is I hope we can do more to raise the profile of the persecution of...

    (Reuters) - Prime Minister David Cameron's handling of an expenses scandal engulfing one of his ministers has put him under pressure before European elections, threatening his Conservative party's already clouded electoral outlook. Cameron, whose party risks being beaten into third place in next month's European Parliament elections behind the anti-EU UK Independence party (UKIP), has stood by Maria Miller, Britain's minister for culture, since a parliamentary report ordered her to pay back wrongly claimed expenses last week. But the media and public backlash against Miller shows no sign of abating despite Cameron's efforts to end it. Many of his own...

    My bookshelves sag with encyclopedic volumes arguing that America and the West are in decline. But proving that a picture is worth a thousand books, the “selfie” seen ’round the world ends the argument. It’s official — the government of the United States of Obama consists of boobs and bores and is led by a narcissist. It is no consolation that Great Britain joins us in racing to the bottom. President Obama’s flirting with Denmark’s prime minister would be shameful on any occasion. That it happened at the memorial for Nelson Mandela only adds to the embarrassment. But the “selfie”...

    Rome (AsiaNews) - With the ninth World Islamic Economic Forum, held in London between 29 and 31 October, Islamic finance has come into its own and gone mainstream. Until a few years ago, Islamic finance was unknown to most people. Some even equated it to the financing of Islamic terrorism. In fact, in the years right after 9/11, anything about Islam was viewed with concern. Now things are different. British Prime Minister David Cameron, who spoke at the forum, said that London is no longer happy to be the main Islamic financial centre outside Muslim countries; it now wants to...

    British Prime Minister David Cameron on Tuesday revealed he was "tucked up in bed" by US President Barack Obama during the pair's recent trip on Air Force One. The two leaders were repeatedly seen back-slapping and sharing jokes during Cameron's recent US visit, but now it appears the friendship was sealed when the president offered Cameron the use of his personal quarters.

    Remember that Barack Obama insists that there are "no silver bullets" to fix the issue of high gas prices. So when British Prime Minister David Cameron visited Washington for high-level talks and the discussion turned to gas prices, what did Obama propose? According to Reuters, holy water and a garland of garlic: President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron discussed the possibility of releasing emergency oil reserves during a meeting on Wednesday, two sources familiar with the talks said, the first sign that Obama is starting to test global support for an effort to knock back near-record fuel...

    ‘Samantha Cameron is NO Michelle Obama’ tweeted one outraged American fashionista upon seeing the British PM’s wife arrive at the Andrews Air Force Base yesterday, clad head to toe in black and dark blue. Others likened her rather sombre ensemble to Chairman Mao or a ninja. But things were all bright on the night when stylish Sam Cam whipped off her black Burberry coat at a mini-Olympics event in Washington for her first fashion head-to-head with America’s First Lady of fashion Michelle Obama.

    President Obama displayed his knowledge of basketball strategy at an appearance at a first-round NCAA tournament game, but politics wasn't far behind. "It's great to see a tournament game, but it's great to see Ohio," Obama said during a halftime interview from the first game of the NCAA basketball tournament in Dayton, Ohio. With the United Kingdom's prime minister David Cameron next to him, Obama stressed that often foreign leaders "only see the coasts. But the heartland is what it’s all about." There is not doubt that Ohio is certainly "what it's all about" when it comes to electoral politics...

    Can you imagine Margaret Thatcher making a special trip in '79 for photo ops with Jimmy Carter...  then not even willing to be seen with Reagan? You'd think British PM David Cameron would be cultivating ties with America's resurgent conservative movement on his trip to the US this week, rather than being such a willing tool for far-Left, anti-British loon Barack Obama... an unpopular failure who's political demise seems more imminent by the day. How is this doing a service for his claimed 'conservative' political principles, the American Right, or even the UK's national interest? Now Obama pumpers will be playing up how the GOP is just too wacked-out to get along...

    TORY MPs heaped pressure on David Cameron yesterday to hold a referendum on Britain's membership of the EU. As the PM met European leaders in Brussels, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, his backbenchers plotted to hold polls to judge the mood. The People's Pledge campaign will hold its first poll in April, with ten more this year and 100 in 2013. Sixty-four MPs so far back the campaign — 44 are Tories. Eurosceptic Douglas Carswell said: "The decisions affecting my constituents' lives are now taken by remote and unaccountable politicians." It came as the Government performed a U-turn on last...

    Cameron and Clegg give a free pass to racism By Melanie Phillips Last updated at 9:53 AM on 17th January 2012 ... Clegg should be condemned in the strongest possible terms for his support of racism. For he is supporting the ethnic cleansing of Jews from a future state of Palestine. Why does the expansion of Jewish housing in the suburbs of Jerusalem prevent a state of Palestine from being established? Only because Abbas and his cronies have said over and over again that not one Jew will be allowed to live in their state of Palestine. That racist agenda...

    British Prime Minister David Cameron recently marked the 400th anniversary of the King James' Bible by declaring that Great Britain is a "Christian country" and "we should not be afraid to say so." Cameron was speaking at Christ Church, Oxford before a Church of England audience. The speech will trouble dogmatic secularists of course. But it also should alert many American religionists who enthusiastically insist that Christendom is dead. Perhaps the embers, however muted, of what reputedly began with the Emperor Constantine almost 1700 years ago still burn, even in a nation like Britain where only 5 percent are regular...
