    Sen. Bernie Sanders is arguing that “the global economy is not working for the majority of people in our country and the world.” Sanders, who hasn’t yet abandoned his presidential campaign, writes in a New York Times op-ed Wednesday that Republican Donald Trump “could benefit from the same forces” that led Britain to vote to leave the European Union. He says that any political advantage flowing to Trump from this market-moving vote “should sound an alarm for the Democratic Party.” …

    Ukip leader Nigel Farage was jeered by the European Parliament after he told MEPs that they were "in denial" about Brexit and that they had "never had a proper job before". His astonishing speech at a special meeting of the European Parliament today ended with boos echoing through the Brussels chamber. Mr Farage used his speech to declare that Brexit was "a beacon of hope" to other member states but he also infuriated MEPs when he said: "Now, I know that virtually none of you have ever done a proper job in your lives or worked in business or worked...

    The foreign ministers of Germany and France on Monday called for ambitious steps to strengthen the European Union after Britain’s shock vote to leave the bloc. “We will… take further steps toward a political union in Europe, and we invite the other European states to join us in this endeavor,” Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Jean-Marc Ayrault wrote in a joint position paper. The top diplomats of the two core EU founding members and biggest economies said that “Germany and France have a responsibility to strengthen solidarity and cohesion within the European Union”. But they also signaled a willingness to accept a...

    President Barack Obama, who had warned against Britain quitting the European Union, said Friday that Washington would respect the British voters’ decision to do just that. The US leader said Britain and the European Union would both remain “indispensable partners” of the United States and that the “special relationship” with London would endure. “The people of the United Kingdom have spoken, and we respect their decision,” Obama said, in a statement from his White House office. But, in a nod to Washington’s frustration that its ally has been unwilling to back a European project seen as a cornerstone of Western...

    A majority of British voters said Thursday that the United Kingdom should leave the European Union, launching markets into turmoil as investors tried to digest what the referendum means for the U.K. and the European bloc as a whole. Although concern for the future of the EU may seem like hyperbole, nearly every member state has a political contingent in favor of leaving the union, and the successful Brexit vote may have just politically legitimized — and energized — those movements.

    I’ve always believed that one should not speak ill of the dead – and especially someone so brutally murdered as was Jo Cox MP on Thursday. But when that dead person is being deified out of all proportion– rather as Princess Diana was after her death – by a mainstream media hand-in-glove with a prime minister who is desperate to create false hysteria in order to sway the most important decision of our generation – our vote in the EU referendum – then something has to be said, ...
  • Europe's Deal With The Devil...immigration crisis pt 3

    The name Europe comes from an ancient Greek myth, about a princess,(Europa) who was seduced by the “god” Zeus, (Satan) . Zeus appeared to Europa in the form of a bull offering her a ride. He took her away, only to ravish her. This is why there are recurring images of a woman riding a bull; on European money, postage stamps and statues in public places also across Europe. The Apostle John, by the Holy Spirit saw a vision of a woman riding a beast,And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with...

    France and Germany are divided on what to do in the event of a Brexit. But common EU security is an area of agreement. Even within the German coalition government, parties are not singing from the same hymnbook on what to do in the case of a Brexit, as some feel there should be a return of powers from Brussels to individual nations. “Germany does not have a plan to follow because the government is divided on its post-Brexit strategy,” said conservative daily Die Welt. Consequently, several sources believe that the EU partners would turn their attention to issues where...

    A wide-ranging new study by the University of Münster shows that Germany’s Turkish community still has very conservative views on the role of religion in society. The survey provides an often contradictory picture of social attitudes among Germany’s 2.7 million people of Turkish origin. A total of 47 percent of the 1,201 respondents said that “following the tenets of my religion is more important to me than the laws of the land in which I live.” But the study also reveals that this viewpoint is much more firmly held by the first generation (57 percent agreement) — Turks who emigrated...

    The European Union’s ambassador to Turkey has quit after criticizing the Turks for their handling of a deal to tackle the refugee crisis, and telling them they should be more like Germans. Under the terms of the controversial pact, Turkey gets cash and visa-free travel to the EU in return for taking back migrants illegally crossing the Mediterranean to Europe. Turkey also wants discussions on it joining the EU to be restarted as the price for its help. The European Commission has set 72 conditions that Turkey must meet to get visa-free travel. But negotiations have stalled over the EU’s...

The ban was imposed after the pool in Neutraubling held a women-only swim day, the Mittelbayerische Zeitung reported last week. One young woman chose to swim and do water aerobics in a burqini, eliciting loud complaints from the other women there. The complaints reached the town officials, who decided to place a ban on the burqini as “non-typical” swim attire. …

    Migrants in Germany committed or tried to commit some 69,000 crimes in the first quarter of 2016, according to a police report that could raise unease, especially among anti-immigrant groups, about Chancellor Angela Merkel's liberal migrant policy. There was a record influx of more than a million migrants into Germany last year and concerns are now widespread about how Europe's largest economy will manage to integrate them and ensure security. The report from the BKA federal police showed that migrants from northern Africa, Georgia and Serbia were disproportionately represented among the suspects. Absolute numbers of crimes committed by Syrians, Afghans...

    Hundreds of people, mainly families with children, were evacuated from Moira camp during the night as rival groups of Afghans and Pakistanis clashed with clubs and stones. As riots engulfed the camp, migrants set alight tents which sent plumes of smoke billowing from the compound of the village outside the island's capital. The majority of injured people were treated by medical staff or NGOs. Tensions have been building in the centre, which houses nearly 3,000 migrants, following the recent deal to send all new arrivals to Lesbos back to Turkey. Frustration have been growing for weeks as around 50,000 migrants...

That population has been subjugated into silence by the PLO and given no opportunity to freely express their support...

The EU diplomat was detained and later released, and his driver - an Arab resident of the northern Atarot neighborhood of Jerusalem...

    Reining in illegal Arab construction is simply "not a top priority" for the government, according to a statement the state conveyed to the Supreme Court. The state was responding to demands that it carry out demolition orders issued against an illegally built Arab school just outside of Jerusalem. The school's construction was funded by the European Union. The Supreme Court subsequently dismissed the case on Wednesday, rejecting claims by Regavim, an NGO which monitors illegal construction in the Arab sector, that the state is intentionally avoiding enforcement of building laws. ...

    David Cameron has made Britain a “semi-pacifist” nation more interested in protecting “welfare and benefits” than adequate defenses, one of the country’s most senior retired generals has warned. General Sir Richard Shirreff, former Deputy Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, said the UK had “shrunk in to itself” and carries an “increasingly impotent stick”. He said the country now risked losing its post-Falklands global reputation for military might. …

    Recep Tayyip Erdogan has a great passion for mosques. Since he took power in Turkey, Mr. Erdogan has built 17,000 Islamic prayer sites. The largest in the world stands on the Camlica Hill, dominating the Asian side of Istanbul, where the East, in the words of Cocteau, extends to Europe “its old bejeweled hand”. The Turkish president is committed to the construction of mosques in European capitals as well. Erdogan seeks to create the image of an Islamic civilization on the rise once again with the Turks acting as the vanguard of this revival. Ten mosques have been financed by...

    Ex-London Mayor Boris Johnson has compared the European Union’s aims to those of Adolf Hitler, arguing that the 28-nation bloc is creating a superstate that mirrors the attempt of the Nazi leader to dominate the European continent. Johnson, the most prominent political figure arguing that Britain should leave the EU, says the past 2,000 years of European history have been dominated by doomed attempts to unify the continent and recreate the Romans’ golden age. “Napoleon, Hitler, various people tried this out, and it ends tragically. The EU is an attempt to do this by different methods,” he was quoted by...
