    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.
  • What Trump’s Decision on Jerusalem Means for Israel and the Middle East

    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...

    Terror group Hamas is calling for a “day of rage” Friday, urging Palestinians to protest President Donald Trump’s plan to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv. 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...

    NEW DELHI: India should nourish and cultivate its Muslim population which is successful and integrated and considers itself Indian unlike in some other countries, former US President Barack Obama said here on Friday while also observing that PM Narendra Modi recognises the importance of Indian unity. He said he had spoken of the need for religious tolerance and the right to practise one's faith in private conversations with Modi, a theme he spoke of during his last official visit to India as President in 2015. Asked at the HT leadership summit if his 2015 comments were intended for Modi, Obama...

    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...

    A Christmas market in France has been cancelled because it can’t afford the security costs amid Europe’s ever-growing terror threat. It comes after police in Germany found a suspicious package near a similar Christmas market in Potsdam. This event in Lyon, at Croix-Rousse, would have cost €20,000 in security, so organisers have called it off.

    Basketball player kept shooting hoops during 'The Star-Spangled Banner' — here's what happened next A 74-year-old basketball fan was booted from a community college booster club after he confronted an athlete who was shooting hoops during the national anthem. Jim Howard, of Garden City, Kansas, had been a member of the Garden City Community College booster club for 32 years. His ouster is the result of an incident that occurred during the basketball team’s season opener on November 1. While the rest of the team was inside the locker room, a player — Rasool Samir — came onto the court...
  • Romania joins Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and Czech Republic in rejection of Muslim migrants

    EU President Juncker wants to allow Romania into the border-free Schengen zone, no doubt as an additional Muslim migration route, now that other Eastern European countries have closed their borders to it. Judging by Romania’s disdain for Muslims, it looks to be a non-starter. Romanians insist “our children must also grow up in safe and civilized conditions. We don’t want to end up like Western Europe where they are afraid to let children walk to school alone, or for their wives to be alone in the streets.” Romania is using technology and extra border control agents to prevent Muslims from...

    ...Trump's critics objected violently - or so they have publicly claimed - to three of his Twitter retweets. These retweets showed videos, purportedly of members of the Religion of Peace (TM) behaving less than peacefully. One depicted a bearded Muslim destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary. One showed an Islamist mob pushing a teenage boy off a roof and then beating him to death. One showed a white Dutch boy on crutches being gratuitously beaten up by a man described in the video caption as a "Muslim migrant". ... Now let me explain why, far from being a stupid,...

    US Muslims are tolerant, peaceful, and integrated into American society. Donald Trump has proposed profiling Muslim Americans and shutting down mosques. He claims that Muslim “hatred is beyond comprehension.” But the truth is that Muslim Americans are not only integrating into U.S. society, but are actually more opposed to violence and more tolerant than many other Americans. Muslim Americans Hold Mainstream Religious and Political Views US Muslims score higher than most on Gallup’s religious tolerance index. Muslims are similar to other religious Americans. Pew’s major survey of Muslims in 2011 found that religion was equally important to Christian and Muslim...

    War, hunger and extremist violence around the world will intensify next year, a Geneva-based think-tank predicted in a new report. The report published Thursday by ACAPS, a nonprofit that supports the global humanitarian sector with daily monitoring and analysis of 150 nations, examined the current humanitarian crises in 18 countries and the anticipated corresponding needs for 2018. The findings were grim. "If 2017 did not look good, predictions for 2018 are no better: violence and insecurity are likely to deteriorate in Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Libya, Ethiopia, Mali, Somalia and Syria next year," ACAPS director Lars Peter Nissen wrote...

    LONDON — Theresa May has condemned U.S. President Donald Trump for retweeting Islamophobic videos about Muslims posted by a leader of the British far-right. A spokesman for the prime minister said that it was "wrong" for Trump to have broadcast the footage to his 46 million Twitter followers this morning. May's spokesman told a press briefing attended by Business Insider: "Britain first seeks to divide communities through their use of hateful narratives which peddle lies and stoke tensions. They cause anxiety to law abiding people. "British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudice of the far-right, which it is the antithesis of...
