    Dr. Mirah Wilks was known for her research into hate crimes against the LGBTQ community. Her latest project was researching resilience as a means of adaption and survival, The Times of Israel reported. Wilks, 69, was killed inside her home on Sunday shortly after her husband left to go to their local synagogue, The Daily Mail reported. The armed black robbers waited on the roof of the house for Wilks’ husband to leave before they smashed through the ceiling to gain entry into the home. On his return, her husband found the blood soaked body of his wife of 45...

    A South African court has partially banned flying the country's apartheid-era national flag, saying such display amounted to "hate speech" and "harassment". Wednesday's landmark ruling in South Africa's Equality Court in Johannesburg barred the so-called "apartheid flag" - comprised of three stripes of orange, white and blue with the emblems of Britain, the Orange Free State and the South African Republic at its centre - from being displayed except for academic, artistic or journalistic purposes.

    Burger King in South Africa is dropping the word “ham” from its menu, after adding bacon at some of its stores, in order to be respectful of Muslim customers. On Friday, the chain confirmed it has changed the names of three of its products. What was previously known as a “Double Spicy Hamburger” will now just be a “Double Spicy Burger”; the “Triple Hamburger with Cheese” becomes the “Triple Burger with Cheese”, and a “Hamburger King Jr.” on the kids’ menu will now be just a “Kids Burger”. The names are being changed “to be more respectful of” its halaal...

    Africans have come out to boycott South Africa after days of looting and violence targeting foreigners in which five people died. Nigerian singers and Zambia's football team are among those in the boycott. South Africa's Minister of Social Development Lindiwe Zulu told the BBC the rioters feared losing their jobs to foreigners. The country has become a magnet for migrants from other parts of Africa. Who has boycotted South Africa? Nigerian Afrobeats star Burna Boy vowed to never go to South Africa again until the government "wakes up". He tweeted that he himself had had his own "xenophobic experiences at...

    As many as 1 000 dogs are poisoned in South Africa every week. This is according to Dr Gerhard Verdoorn, director at the Griffon Poison Information Centre. On Wednesday evening, up to 40 dogs were poisoned in Florida, Roodepoort. "The poison that is used is very potent - around 97% of animals that are poisoned die." Verdoorn said poison is usually placed in viennas, Russians or mince and fed to the dogs. Once the dogs are dead, the homes are easy targets for housebreaking or theft. "The most common poison used is Aldicarb, also known as 'two-step'. It's called that...

    Former Trump adviser George Papadopoulos told Fox News' Maria Bartiromo in an exclusive interview that he is heading back to Greece to retrieve $10,000 that he suspects was dropped in his lap as part of an entrapment scheme by the CIA or FBI -- and federal investigators want to see the marked bills, which he said are now stored in a safe. Papadopoulos said on "Sunday Morning Futures" he was "very happy" to see Devin Nunes, R-Calif., grill former Special Counsel Robert Mueller about the summer 2017 payment during last week's hearings -- even though Mueller maintained, without explanation, that...

    Welcome to Captive Nations Week. Never heard of it? You’re not alone. Yet this usually-forgotten, federally mandated occasion — now in its 60th year — is worth resurrecting in the 21st century. Congress created Captive Nations Week in 1959, making the third week in July a time to show Americans’ solidarity with the nations dominated by communism. The original law listed 22 captive nations, most of which had substantial communities of citizens in major American cities. After the law’s passage, these communities began to hold parades and rallies every year, from Miami to New York to Los Angeles to Chicago...

    Splice Today ^ | July 2018 | Chris Beck
    Alienating blue-collar whites is a sure way to keep losing. One of the laws of gravity in American politics is that the opposition party gains ground in the midterm elections, so the Democrats should be a lock to win control of at least the House of Representatives in November, requiring a net gain of 23 seats. Then again, it’s hard to say what rules still apply after Trump’s win. Maybe the slate’s been wiped clean and we’re starting from scratch again. While there are plenty of signs that the Democrats can fulfill historical expectations four months from now, a recent...

After being subject to brutal torture, Zeng managed to escape China and now tells about the evils of socialism and communism. At a time when more Americans are embracing Karl Marx’s teachings, Chris Wright...

    In an unprecedented move last week, India voted in support of Israel at the UN’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) to deny observer status to a Palestinian human rights organisation named ‘Shahed’. This is the first time India has taken a step back from its decades-old position on the two-state theory under which New Delhi sees both Israel and Palestine as separate and independent countries, seeking to bring peace in West Asia.The vote, which took place on 6 June at the UN, saw countries such as US, France, Germany, India, Japan, UK, South Korea and Canada polling in favour of...

The terrified toddler was bitten repeatedly on the neck and body, and despite his distraught parents rushing him to hospital, he was pronounced dead on arrival. The boy was stalked by the female leopard at the technical services area just inside the Malelane gate into Kruger.

    outh Africa’s parliamentary elections on May 8 were the sixth since democracy was introduced in 1994. They were held in an atmosphere of unparalleled national crisis almost entirely self-inflicted by the ruling African National Congress. Unemployment, 3.7 million when the ANC took over, is nearly ten million now. Poverty and inequality have grown exponentially while the governing elite loots and steals all it can. The country is now in its fifth consecutive year of falling real incomes, the chronic power cuts—suspended artificially for the election—are expected to last at least another five years, two out of the three rating agencies...
  • Singapore founding father Lee Kuan Yew's gay grandson ties knot with male partner in South Africa

    HOMOSEXUAL sex is illegal in famously-conservative Singapore, which was meticulously shaped by its former Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew, who died in 2015. So an understandable collective gasp of surprise and disbelief reverberated across social media platforms on Friday when it was announced online that Lee’s own grandson had married his gay lover. In an Instagram post on Friday, May 24, Heng Yirui published an image of himself with his boyfriend, Li Huanwu – son of the late premier’s son, Lee Hsien Yang – dressed in matching white shirts and khaki pants at a game reserve in Cape Town, South...
