    A 43-year-old German man who travelled around Portugal in a camper van is now the focus of Scotland Yard's investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann 13 years ago. Police believe the man, now in jail for a sex crime, was in the area where the girl, then aged three, was last seen. Madeleine's parents Gerry and Kate McCann thanked the police, adding: "All we have ever wanted is to find her." Police are appealing for information about two vehicles owned by the man. The day after Madeleine vanished, the suspect transferred a Jaguar car to someone else's name. Madeleine...

    LISBON - Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa said on Friday that the Netherlands’ attempt to block economic support to fight the coronavirus raised questions about the future of the European Union. “If under these conditions it’s not possible for Europe to ensure a common response to this challenge, this is a sign of great concern for those who believe in Europe,” Costa said in an interview with local news agency Lusa. Costa questioned whether “there is anyone who wants to be left out” of the EU or the 19-member euro zone. “Naturally, I’m referring to the Netherlands,” he said. “There...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday morning estimated the US could see between 100,000 and 200,000 deaths. ‘We’re going to have millions of cases,’ he said, adding that he did not want to be held to that number because the pandemic is ‘such a moving target’. As of Sunday morning, there were more than 123,000 positive cases, and more than 2,100 deaths in the US. New York City remains the epicenter of the nation’s outbreak, with 30,765 cases and 672 deaths. But very sad news came from Europe. The Portuguese health minister says a 14-year-old boy with COVID-19 has died. The...

    Associated Press ^ | February 20, 2020 | Barry Hatton
    Portugal’s parliament debated Thursday whether to allow euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide for terminally ill people, with lawmakers expected to vote to approve the procedures later in the day. Outside the parliament building in Lisbon, hundreds of people opposed to euthanasia waved banners and chanted “Sim a vida!” (“Yes to life!”). One banner said, “Euthanasia doesn’t end suffering, it ends life.” Some people held up crucifixes and religious effigies. Approval of one of the five bills being discussed would leave Portugal poised to become one of the few countries in the world permitting the procedures. But the country’s president is known...

    Several Palestinian clans have rejected The Convention of the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women, a move widely seen as a revolt against the PA. Critics of the treaty claim that it goes against Arab and Islamic norms and teachings. “This treaty is unacceptable to Arabs and Muslims,” remarked Palestinian activist Abu Ghassan Shaheen. “It goes against our religion and traditions.” On Saturday, leaders of large Palestinian clans in Hebron called on the PA to withdraw from the treaty. They also called for banning feminist groups from entering Palestinian schools. The clan leaders expressed opposition to the PA’s...

  • Trump’s Openness Is Forcing A Stronger NATO And Europe

    12/03/2019 1:50:09 PM PST · by Liberty7732 · 9 replies
    The American people and the world are witnessing a revolution of openness brought on by none other than the frank, brusk, always to the point methods of President Trump. This was on full display this week as Trump held public press conferences with world leaders during the NATO meeting in London, and repeatedly had shockingly open and honest discussions — the things that have always been kept behind closed doors in the past, and then reported via leaks through a partisan media. Trump’s method forces difficult issues out into the light without the bias filter. With French President Emmanuel Macron,...

How more challenging and scary has being a Jew in Europe become? "It's very challenging, as an individual and as a community." You're referring to fears of anti-Semitism? "Yes. We witnessed an attack on Yom Kippur in eastern Germany, not ISIS - Neo-Nazis. In the last years, no Jews were killed by neo-Nazis in Europe. It's a whole new phenomenon."

    Since President Donald Trump took office, his administration has secured the release of 17 prisoners foreign governments had detained. “We’ve had 17 released, and we’re very proud of that record. Very proud. And we have others coming,” Trump said Saturday evening as he welcomed home Joshua Holt, an American citizen who had been detained in Venezuela for two years without trial. Unlike his predecessor, the president has managed to bring these prisoners home without freeing terrorists or paying millions of dollars in suspected ransom payments. 1.
