    The number of “Palestinian refugees” in Lebanon has decreased significantly over the past few years and many are leaving for other countries to try to improve their situation. In an interview with the Hamas newspaper Palestine on Thursday, Hamas’s representative in Lebanon Ali Baraka said that some 260,000 “Palestinian refugees” had left the refugee camps in Lebanon to various countries in recent years because of the difficult security and economic conditions. According to him, the figures he cited are based on a poll conducted by the Lebanese authorities and which indicates that there is a deliberate action to bring about...

    We just got word from Angela ‘Mutti’ Merkel’s open-borders Germany that security forces smashed an ISIS terror cell. Six so-called refugees were arrested and they’re accused of being part of an ISIS group that was planning a terrorist attack on German soil. The six refugees who entered Germany courtesy of Angela Merkel’s pathological altruism coming from a war/terrorist prone zone completely unvetted were arrested in three different cities: Hannover, Kassel and Leipzig. All six of them are allegedly Syrian. Germany’s Attorney General told the press the suspects were preparing a terrorist attack using explosives and/or weapons on a public target...

    Between 1944 and 1947, an estimated 12 million ethnic Germans fled or were expelled from their homes. Overshadowed by the crimes of the Nazis, their stories have often received little international attention. But these days, as Bethany Bell reports from Germany, the new arrivals from Syria have awakened old memories about what it means to flee. Christa Nolte carefully lifted a little book out of a box of family papers. "This is what my grandmother, Anna, took with her when we fled," she told me. "It was important for her to save it." It was a pocket-sized Lutheran hymnal, the...

    The arrival of more than than 130,000 Puerto Ricans in Florida since Hurricane Maria has some officials anticipating a political shakeup in a battleground state dominated by the Republican party. Both parties are actively courting new arrivals to Florida, which President Donald Trump won last year by 112,000 votes out of 9.6 million cast. Many Puerto Ricans have expressed outrage over Trump's handling of the storm but have applauded efforts by Republican Gov. Rick Scott to welcome them. As U.S. citizens, Puerto Ricans can vote in federal elections when they move to the mainland. Newcomers must register as voters by...

    Tests have revealed that the ‘child refugee’ who raped and murdered 19-year-old Maria Ladenburger is actually between 22 and 30 years old. Dental analysis of a tooth which was taken from Hussein Khavari eight months before the attack during a routine procedure suggests he is “probably” 25 years old, with a 99.7 per cent probability that his true age falls somewhere between 22.05 and 29.55, reports German outlet Bild. Anthropologist Professor Ursula Wittwer-Backofen, from the Institute of Biological Anthropology in Freiburg, explained: “On the tooth, the number of dark bands can be read to show the years of life.” Experts...

    The number of refugees admitted into the country during the first month of FY 2018 by the Trump administration plummeted to 1,242 – an 87 percent decline from the 9,945 admitted during the first month of FY 2017 by the Obama administration. The percentage of refugees admitted who are Muslim declined dramatically as well, from 45 percent in October 2016 to 23 percent in October 2017, according to the State Department interactive website. Of particular note is the precipitous drop in the number of refugees admitted from the seven countries whose citizens were temporarily banned from traveling to the United...

More than 40,000 migrants are currently living in refugee shelters in Saxony, and if the data are any indication, many of them are not getting along with each other.The report cited 10 murders or manslaughters at Saxon migrant...

    PATTERNS OF THOUGHT   In Italy, a country traditionally tolerant of immigrants, the public mood has shifted against them. That has prompted the government to take a harder line in a bid to stem the rise of right wing, anti-Muslim parties ahead of national elections. ROME—Every weekday afternoon, lawyer Iacopo Maria Pitorri leaves his office for a few minutes to offer legal advice to a crowd of migrants waiting for him outside Rome’s Termini Station. “My colleagues don’t want these people to come into the office so I come downstairs,” Mr. Pitorri says. Not far away, in Piazza Venezia, a...

    An Egyptian lawyer has sparked outrage after telling a national television audience it is his “patriotic and national duty” to harass and rape young girls who wear revealing clothes including ripped jeans. Nabih al-Wahsh said women wearing clothing should be punished. He warned: “Are you happy when you see a girl walking down the street with half of her behind showing? I say that when a girl walks about like that, it is a patriotic duty to sexually harass her and a national duty to rape her.” The shock remarks came in a panel show broadcast on Al-Assema during a debate...

    White nationalists and neo-Nazis are expected to converge on the small Tennessee cities of Shelbyville and Murfreesboro on Saturday to protest refugee resettlement in the state, seven months after it sued the U.S. government over the issue. The “White Lives Matter” rally, by some of the groups involved in a Virginia march in August that turned violent, is also expected to draw hundreds of counter-demonstrators and a heavy local police presence. The organizers said they chose middle Tennessee partly in hopes of avoiding clashes, but said protesters could bring shields, goggles and helmets for protection. The rally, named in response...

    White House chief of staff John Kelly reportedly told other members of the Trump administration that he would ideally admit between zero and one refugees into the US each year if the decision was up to him. The New York Times reported Wednesday that Kelly made the comment while the administration debated lowering the cap on the number of refugees allowed into the country. President Trump eventually decided to lower the refugee cap to 45,000, the lowest levels since the Reagan administration, when the Refugee Act was passed. Officials said at the time that this number represents the maximum number...

    New information reveals how an alleged terrorist manipulated our immigration system to gain entry and remain in North America. Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, the Somali national being detained after the recent Edmonton terror attack, managed to slip into Canada despite a complicated system of biometric checks designed to stop people just like him. In 2011, Canada implemented a biometric screening program designed to stop criminals and other dangerous individuals from entering Canada. This system has the capacity to share vital information amongst our allies in a network known as the Five Eyes. The Five Eyes is a security alliance by Canada,...

    New statistics from the Ministry of the Interior show that last year's sex offenders have reached a dramatic peak: from 2015 to 2016 a rise of 26.18 percent. It is especially striking that Afghans are often seen as perpetrators in statistics. As the "press" reported on Thursday, 5253 sexual offenses were reported in 2016, compared with 4163 cases the year before. In 2017, on the other hand, a better result could be steered, as in the first half-year, 2422 sexual offenses were reported. Afghans are at the top of sex offenders A look at the nationalities of the suspects in...

    SALZGITTER, Germany—Late this summer, Nadine Langer took her six-year old to her first day at school. The girl was one of two German children in her class, she said, amid 20, mostly Syrian, refugees. “I am not against foreigners,” said Ms. Langer, 41. “But there is a point where we have to wonder who is integrating whom.” Germany’s 2015 refugee crisis has largely disappeared from the headlines. But in this and other midsize towns, it is continuing to unfold, putting communities under stress, pressuring local coffers and feeding concerns about safety, jobs and the quality of education. Some 140,000 asylum...

    As discussed here previously, German Chancellor Angela Merkel may have won another term in the recent elections, but she came away damaged with her previous coalition in tatters. In order to rebuild her alliance in the Bundestag she had to make some new friends and offer concessions to historical allies who were refusing to support her over immigration policy. One of the biggest changes coming out of the recent negotiations is that her former hard line on open borders and no limits on the number of migrants they would accept is out the window. Moving forward, there will be a...

    Another 9/11, another Brussels, another Paris? According to indictments unsealed yesterday by the Department of Justice, a three-man Islamist terror cell plotted versions of all the above for another attack on New York City. Before they could carry it out, an FBI undercover agent discovered the plot in 2016, then coordinated an international manhunt to capture all three erstwhile terrorists: The alleged scheme was more nefarious than many: The group, which wanted to attack Times Square and the New York City subway system, claimed to have been in touch with an Islamic State affiliate to obtain the official sanction...

    A mix of emotions filled the air at Port Everglades on Tuesday as hurricane refugees from the eastern Caribbean hugged loved ones, burst into tears of joy and flashed broad smiles after reaching a safe haven from the storm-devastated islands they once called home. Arriving aboard the Royal Caribbean International cruise ship that dropped anchor were 3,336 evacuees from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands — weary but relieved — many with beloved pets in tow.
