    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.

    It turns out Muslims in the USA really are oppressed after all. How would you like to come over from the Middle East and attend an explicitly Catholic school like Loyola University Chicago, only to discover that Christmas is treated as if it were somehow a bigger deal than Islamic holidays, despite 5% of the students being Muslim? Sajedah Al-khzaleh grouses in the student paper that “there is a lack of public festivity compared to Christmas.” Sajid Ahmed, prayer coordinator for the terrorism-associated Muslim Students Association, says he “wishes Muslim holidays were just as prominent.” No worries; P.C. educrats are...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has threatened to vote against the tax bill, putting the legislation in danger of being delayed past Christmas. Rubio has told Senate leaders that he will vote against the bill unless the child tax credit is made more generous to help lower-income workers who pay payroll taxes and not regular income taxes. “Sen. Rubio has consistently communicated to the Senate tax negotiators that his vote on final passage would depend on whether the refundability of the Child Tax Credit was increased in a meaningful way,” said a spokesperson for Rubio. If Rubio votes against the bill,...

    The leaders of 57 Muslim nations have called on the world to recognise "the State of Palestine and East Jerusalem as its occupied capital". An Organisation of Islamic Co-operation communique declares US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise the city as Israel's capital as "null and void". It also says the move has signalled Washington's withdrawal from its role in the Middle East peace process. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas earlier said the UN should take over. In a speech to the OIC summit in Istanbul, Mr Abbas said it would be "unacceptable" for the US to be the mediator "since...

But it now appears that his father is still alive. According to German media his father said his son was born in 1984 and that he is 33-years-old.

    If only New York City had some sort of program to send informants to mosques to sniff out attacks. Like the one it used to have before the left shut it down. So far both of the NYC terror attacks have had links to known terror mosques. First up is our friend Ullah from Bangladesh who tried to blow himself up. Akayed Ullah worships at the same mosque where infamous blind sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman once preached, law enforcement sources told The Post on Monday. Ullah’s brother Ahsan attends MasJid al-Salam mosque in Jersey City, where the radical cleric Abdel-Rahman used to spew...

    The term “Asian” is used in the United Kingdom to describe people from India, Pakistan, and other South Asian countries. The term is also sometimes used for Middle Easterners. Grooming gang offenders are mostly of Pakistani (Muslim) originThe Quilliam researchers, both of whom are of Pakistani heritage, first began their study into “grooming gangs” to challenge the perception that Muslims with an Asian heritage are overrepresented in the media. They discovered that 222 of the 264 people convicted for grooming gang-related crimes between the years of 2005 and 2017 are “Asian.” Of the total number of offenders, only 18 of...

    The government’s efforts to deport 92 Somali nationals — including some who lived in Georgia and Minnesota — did not go as planned this week, when the flight encountered some snags in Senegal and returned to the U.S. with all on board. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released statement Saturday, saying relief flight crew members were “unable to get sufficient rest due to issues with their hotel in Dakar.” “The aircraft, including the detainees and crew on board, remained parked at the airport to allow the relief crew time to rest,” ICE said in its statement. “During this time, the...

    If you live near more than a few sanctimonious liberals you know these signs. They're sprouting up around me like the rats in Camus' Plague. First I saw just one, then a few, and now hundreds. Each one conveys the same message in English and f'n Arabic (ARABIC !!) that the people who put the signs out are such good people. I've thought about taking down the addresses where I see these sign and snail mailing each a letter politely expressing my thoughts about their respective signs. But so far I haven't been able to come up with suitable text....

    A senior police officer has called for on-street testing of liquids to tackle acid attacks, as Britain struggles to cope with one of the worst rates of acid attacks in the world. Suffolk Assistant Chief Constable Rachel Kearton wants new legislation to criminalise the carrying of corrosive substances, similar to laws for carrying knives. Under the proposed legislation, suspects would have to prove they were carrying liquids, ranging from sulphuric acid to household bleach, for legitimate reasons.

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday kept his campaign promise to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and ordered the State Department to make plans to eventually move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv. The long-delayed, symbolic move addressed a historic injustice: Israel is the only country in the world not allowed to choose its own capital. Trump also exercised America’s sovereign right to recognize the capital of a close ally and choose the location of its own embassy. In recent years, the refusal of many nations to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has become an integral part of the international...

The group, designated a terrorist organization by the U.S., encouraged Palestinians in an official Arabic statement to send a message “with all available means” to Israel after the upcoming Friday prayers. It added that making Jerusalem the Israeli capital was crossing a “red line.”

    The head of Germany’s domestic intelligence agency warned Sunday of the risk wives and children of Islamic State fighters pose upon their return to Europe. About one-third of the close to 1,000 Germans who travelled to fight for ISIS have returned to the country. Hans-Georg Maassen, the head of Germany’s Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), warned that many women and children “had become so radicalized and identify so deeply with IS-ideology that, by all accounts, they must also be identified as jihadis.”“There are children who have been brainwashed and highly radicalized at ‘schools’ in IS-held areas,” Maassen...

    Billionaire financier and funder of Antifa leftist goons, George Soros complains that current Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban “is undoing all the progress made during the 40 years the country was ruled by Communists. After World War II, Stalin’s troops ensured that the people of Hungary would enjoy the full benefits of a progressive political and social system. Orban is throwing all that away.” Particularly irritating to Soros is what he calls “Orban’s perverted use of border fences and guards. He has turned the previous progressive policy on its head by using these traditional barriers to keep migrants out instead...
