    The European Union on Saturday called on Israel to halt the demolition of illegal Palestinian buildings, some of which are EU-funded, and reiterated its opposition to building Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria. "In the past weeks there have been a number of developments in Area C of the West Bank, which risk undermining the viability of a future Palestinian state and driving the parties yet further apart," the EU diplomatic service said in a statement. It referred to Israel's decision on January 25 to declare 154 hectares (380 acres) of land near Jericho in Judea as state land, with...

    Strasbourg, France — The European Parliament on Thursday declared that genocide is taking place in the Middle East against Christians, Yazidis and other ethnic and religious minorities at the hands of the Islamic State. ... Such a declaration is significant because it calls for members of the United Nations Security Council to refer the matter to the International Criminal Court, which would officially investigate to see if genocide is taking place.

    EU Council President Donald Tusk will present the draft agreement between Britain and Europe - which he hopes will keep the UK in the union - at noon on Tuesday. He claimed "good progress" had been made over the last two days while admitting there were "still outstanding issues". But Tory MPs and other Euro-sceptic campaigners were already indicating that the draft deal will far fall short of their aspirations for a fundamental change in Britain's relationship with the EU. Ukip deputy leader Paul Nuttall said: "The theatrics and drama of David Cameron's sham renegotiation continues and he is playing...

    Passport-free travel and hassle-free business in Europe has never been in more danger. With more than 1 million people streaming into the European Union hoping for sanctuary or jobs, nations have erected fences, deployed troops and tightened border controls. “What we have worked for, for so many years, we are seeing it crumbling now in front of us,” Roberta Metsola, a leading EU lawmaker on migration, told The Associated Press on Tuesday. As draconian as they might seem, most attempts to stem the migrant flow have been within the letter, if not the spirit, of the rules governing the European...

As a democracy, we want to make sure that Poland's democracy continues to address the issues."

    American business magnate and investor George Soros no longer views Russia as an enemy of the EU and is now openly calling on Brussels to cooperate with Moscow, German newspaper Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten (DWN) wrote. According to him, the European Union may soon collapse due to the refugee crisis and the lack of leadership. In order to survive, European leaders need a "new Marshall Plan" in which Russia should play a key role, the investor stressed. Soros has always been a supporter of the idea of the EU's existence, but now he sees that the EU is "falling apart". In...

"We do not view labeling the origin of products as being from the settlements a boycott of Israel. We also do not believe that labeling the origin of products is equivalent to a boycott," State Department Spokesman John Kirby said at a press briefing. Kirby was also asked about the timing of US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro's harsh criticism against Israel on Monday.

Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely responded to the decision and said, "The Europeans continue to act unilaterally with regards to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict". "This resolution achieves the opposite from what they sought to achieve. These types of declarations only push actual dialogue further away and give a boost to the Palestinians to continue their efforts to condemn Israel in the international arena and to continue the relentless...

    The European Union (EU) passed on Monday evening a resolution stipulating that all agreements between Israel and the EU not apply to any areas over the 1949 Armistice borders. In the convoluted wording of the resolution, it states, "The EU expresses its commitment to ensure that - in line with international law - all agreements between the State of Israel and the EU must unequivocally and explicitly indicate their inapplicability to territories occupied by Israel in 1967." "This does not constitute a boycott of Israel which the EU strongly opposes," it added. The moves comes several hours after reports of...

Former minister Nick Herbert has launched Conservatives for Reform in Europe (CRE) to argue the case for the UK to stay under renegotiated terms.

    Brussels (AFP) - The European Union launched an unprecedented probe on Wednesday into controversial legal changes introduced by Poland's new right-wing government to see if they violate EU democracy rules and merit punitive measures. The move comes amid growing concern over reforms to Poland's constitutional court and increased control over state media adopted by the conservative, eurosceptic Law and Justice party (PiS), which swept to power in October.

    BERLIN (AFP) - German public broadcaster ZDF has apologised for delays in reporting on a wave of sexual assaults blamed on men of Arab appearance amid accusations Wednesday of media self-censorship of the inflammatory issue. The rash of attacks and thefts in a New Year's Eve crowd in the western city of Cologne was only widely covered by national media early this week, after police had initially reported no major incidents. News editors of ZDF's flagship "heute" (today) evening news programme apologised on social media for not reporting on the incidents at least in its Monday evening bulletin, four days...

    A political scandal is developing in Germany as ordinary citizens wake up to the scale of the migrant crime cover-up, and the callous reaction of the mayor of Cologne to mass-sex crime on new year’s eve. The Mayor of Cologne has spoken out about the attacks, but her carefully chosen words are unlikely to delight many. Rather than addressing the root causes of the violence — unlimited mass migration and a totally failed system of integration — the newly elected pro-migrant mayor instead blamed the victims of the sexual abuse for having failed to defend themselves against the immigrant attackers.

    Belgium has arrested six terror suspects. The terrorists, all Islamic, had planned to carry out attacks during the New Year's party in the country's capital, Brussels. The six were arrested during a massive operation in the Brussels neighborhood of Molenbeek, its suburb Laken, and in the towns of Sint-Pieters Leeuw and Anderlecht. Yesterday, Belgian authorities arrested another man -- Ayoub B. -- on the suspicion of membership in a terrorist organization and involvement in terror related murders. That arrest came a few days after Belgian police arrested two men -- Saïd S. and Mohamed K. -- because they too had...

    The development of so-called "problem neighbourhoods" or "lawless neighbourhoods" in Germany over the course of 2015 has made law enforcement impossible in some areas, according to police reports. The latest admission of the developing problem of no-go zones in Europe comes from state police in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), a west German state that borders Belgium and the Netherlands. Here, an inquiry by a Conservative Democratic Union (CDU) politician into the state of policing has elicited an embarrassing admission of failure by local police to keep the situation under control. In Germany, state police are responsible for local law enforcement, but...

    End of year statistics released by the Federal German state of Saxony has shown a steep increase in immigrant crime, with a growing number of multiple offenders responsible for the rise since 2014. The increase is significant in the east German Free State of Saxony, as it lies outside the most heavy migratory path which is concentrated on southern state Bavaria. As the state is in the opposite direction of travel from the route leading to Berlin, France, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Sweden, and other popular migrant destinations - Saxony has received some of the lowest numbers of migrants of...

The German cardinal, one of the few remaining orthodox prelates in Germany, told his audience it's wrong to believe violent persecutions of Christians are a thing of the past. Instead, he pointed out how there are plenty of martyrs for the Faith today, specifically because of ISIS. "In about 25 countries Christians are under threat of life and limb," observed Cdl. Koch.

The attacks had all the inevitability of a Greek tragedy: they were entirely predictable. Nevertheless many reacted with “shock,” including Angela Merkel, David Cameron, and the Vatican. As Bergman writes: After 9/11 in the United States; the 2004 Madrid train bombings, which killed nearly 200 and wounded 2,000; and...

    Antalya (Turkey) (AFP) - European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said Sunday there was no need for a complete review of the bloc's refugee policy after the Paris attacks claimed by Islamic State jihadists. "Those who organised, who perpetrated the attacks are the very same people who the refugees are fleeing and not the opposite. And so there is no need for an overall review of the European policy on refugees," Juncker said ahead of a summit of the Group of 20 top world economies in the Turkish Mediterranean resort of Antalya.

    The European Union won’t change its strategy for dealing with refugees arriving from the Middle East and elsewhere in the aftermath of the Paris terror attacks, the president of the bloc’s executive arm said Sunday. Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission, also urged citizens and politicians not to confuse the Paris perpetrators with those seeking shelter from war and terror. People familiar with the matter have said that one of the terrorists who killed more than 100 people in coordinated attacks in the French capital Friday had entered the EU via Greece on a Syrian passport. That revelation...

    WARSAW - Poland cannot accept migrants under European Union (EU) quotas after Friday's attacks in Paris, Poland's European affairs minister designate Konrad Szymanski said on Saturday. In a commentary published in the right-leaning news portal wPolityce.pl, Szymanski said his incoming government did not agree with Poland's commitment to accept its share of an EU-wide relocation of immigrants, and now, "in the face of the tragic acts in Paris, we do not see the political possibilities to implement (this)." Szymanski will take up his position on Monday as part of a government formed by the last month's election winner, the conservative...
  • 'Communists will be hanging': Nationalist march commemorates Poland's Independence Day

    11/12/2015 10:23:17 AM PST · by Jack Black · 27 replies
    A nationalist march is underway in Warsaw to commemorate Poland's Independence Day, with authorities bracing themselves for a crowd of around 50,000. Marches in recent years have turned violent, with police using rubber bullets and water cannons. The Independence March, an annual event marking the anniversary of the country gaining autonomy from Russia, Prussia, and Austria in 1918, following 123 years of partitions, is organized by the National Front Group. It is seen as a showcase for anti-EU politicians who are seeking to revive Polish nationalism. Such politicians accuse the EU of being the biggest threat to the country's sovereignty....

    In a stunning interview, the Maronite patriarch of Antioch, Cardinal Bechara Boutros al-Rahi, has contended that Islam has a clear, two-pronged strategy to take over Europe: religion and procreation. The cardinal said that Muslims look on Christians as weak and believe that since they have no children and barely practice their faith, Islam will easily conquer them. Sadly, he said, Muslims take their faith more seriously than most Christians, and they are gaining ground because of it. "I have often heard from Muslims that their goal is to conquer Europe with two weapons: their faith and their birthrate," al-Rahi said......

    As Israeli politicians and organizations continue to rail against the European Union for its decision to label products made in Judea and Samaria, MK Stav Shaffir said that Israel - and especially the current government - had no one to blame but itself for the situation. “The 'right wing' government in this country long ago sold the settlements down the river for a long list of benefits from the European Union,” Shaffir wrote on her Facebook page Thursday. “Israel has signed many agreements that exclude Judea and Samaria as entities within Israel.” Shaffir was referring to scientific, economic, and academic...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday likened the European Union's decision to label Jewish goods from Judea, Samaria, eastern Jerusalem and the Golan Heights to the Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses. Israel in retaliation also called off a number of scheduled EU meetings. "The labeling of products of the Jewish state by the European Union brings back dark memories, Europe should be ashamed of itself," Netanyahu said as he wrapped up a visit to Washington. "It took an immoral decision...this will not advance peace, it will certainly not advance truth and justice. It's wrong," he said in an English-language video...

    UNLESS I am much mistaken, and I dearly hope I am, there is something happening in this country that I find deeply troubling. I refer to a sort of rift or schism that is developing between the governors and the governed. As for the first-named, I mean the Establishment. There is nothing fictional about the Establishment. Every society across the time zones and the ages has had one. It is not a body with a head office or a president but that does not mean it does not exist. It is in fact a loose amalgam of institutions and common...
