    The PC Police are at it again in Finland. This time they’re chasing down a politician who dared to post uncomplimentary things about Islam on the Internet. Here’s the story from Tundra Tabloids: Finland: Police investigate gay politician once again for posting about Islam Sebastian Tynkkynen (FB) is a Finnish politician who has been at the forefront in creating awareness about Islamization in Finland. He had been investigated earlier by a heavily politicized Finnish police department over his Facebook postings in August of 2016, and went to trial almost exactly a year ago today, and was eventually found guilty of...

    Finland will leave the European Union and position itself as the Switzerland of the north to protect its independence if Laura Huhtasaari, the presidential candidate of the eurosceptic Finns Party has her way. Finns Party deputy chairman and presidential candidate Laura Huhtasaari poses for a picture at the Finland's Parliament in Helsinki, Finland December 13, 2017. REUTERS/Tuomas Forsell She also told Reuters in an interview she wants to tighten immigration rules.

    Newsweek ^ | Tom O'Connor
    The increasingly militarized conflict between Western military alliance NATO and Russia has compelled Finland to boost its own defenses and acquire new weapons, according to the commander of the country’s armed forces. Finnish Defense Chief General Jarmo Lindberg said Wednesday that the increased military activity in the region prompted Helsinki to rethink prior defense cuts and commit to expanding its forces, including procuring new weapons and equipment. Finland has been one of the few Western European countries that hasn’t sought membership in NATO, but its troubled relationship with neighboring Russia worsened after Moscow’s 2014 annexation of the Crimean Peninsula from...

    SNN: An ability of Sweden to defend itself has become a question of heated debate on nationwide 'People and military' conference. Today we invited to our studio a colonel Eric Lillestohl from the Defence Ministry HQ. Lillestohl: Thank you. SNN: Would be Sweden able to defend itself in case of external aggression? Lillestohl: (laughter) You see, there is an widely supported opinion in expert community that Sweden has no actual risk of foreign aggression. In that sense we are absolutely ready. SNN: Ok, let's rephrase my question. Are we hypothetically capable to counter invasion? Lillestohl: (laughter) Why should we since...

    On Wednesday December 6, Finland celebrates one hundred years of independence. Major festivities will make note of Finland's journey since 1917 – when the Finnish parliament proclaimed independence amid the Bolshevik revolution in Russia – from a poor provincial backwater to a global leader in technology, education and design, and a "social demographic triumph"as The Guardian put it.

    A 23-year-old migrant, named Juusuf Muhamed Abbud, was acquitted from aggravated rape despite having intercourse with a ten-year-old girl. The court said it was not clear that the girl was “unable to defend herself and express her lack of consent”. According to the Helsinki times: “The Turku Court of Appeal ruled last week that the defendant was guilty of aggravated child sexual abuse but not of aggravated rape and sentenced him to only three years in prison”, thus upholding a ruling issued in March by the District Court of Pirkanmaa. The defendant was acquitted of the charge of aggravated rape...

    Evening Standard ^ | 11/24 | Harriet Pavey
    It's said to be richer in protein than regular loavesA Finnish bakery has launched what it claims to be the world’s first insect-based bread, made from crushed crickets. Helsinki-based bakery Fazer made the bread using flour ground from dried crickets. Each loaf contains about 70 of the insects, combined with wheat flour and other seeds. At £3.55 (€3.99) a loaf, it is slightly more expensive than a regular wheat loaf which usually sells for about £2 (€2.24). Due to a limited supply of crickets, the insect-bread will initially only be sold in 11 Fazer bakery stores in Helsinki, but the...

    A Finnish TV channel was left red-faced on Tuesday after it accidentally broadcast text insulting Sweden during its live morning news bulletin. MTV3 – a Finnish TV station not related to the American network of a similar name – had a routine start to its 7.30am news show, as anchor Jouni Sipilä opened with a report about Donald Trump's plans to pull out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. But things quickly went downhill from there. As Sipilä moved on to the recent earthquake in Japan, the phrase "Ruotsi on kakka" appeared in large text on the main onscreen caption. For the...

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — A blazing fireball lit up the dark skies of Arctic Finland for five seconds, giving off what scientists said was "the glow of 100 full moons" and igniting hurried attempts to find the reported meteorite. Finnish experts were scrambling to calculate its trajectory and find where it landed, according to Tomas Kohout of the University of Helsinki's physics department, who said Thursday night's fireball "seems to have been one of the brightest ones." It produced a blast wave that felt like an explosion about 6:40 p.m. and could also be seen in northern Norway and in...
