  • Jihadi John: 'Radicalised' by Britain (UPSIDE-DOWN! Sympathy for Poor Jihadi John!?)

    CAGE UK ^ | Thursday 26 February 2015 | CAGE UK
    Since 2001, the British authorities have systematically shifted the spotlight away from its foreign policy and its security agencies by placing blame for violence at home and abroad solely on Muslims. British security services have systematically engaged in the harassment of young Muslims, rendering their lives impossible and leaving them with no legal avenue to redress their situation. A Washington Post correspondent contacted CAGE regarding a story she was working on. CAGE Research Director, Asim Qureshi met with the journalist, where she inquired about the name Mohammad Emwazi. Qureshi went away with that information and checked CAGE’s files, revealing that...

    ISIS militant ‘Jihadi John’ unmasked as middle-class Brit By Yaron Steinbuch February 26, 2015 | 7:16am The infamous masked ISIS madman seen in gruesome videos beheading Western hostages was identified by media outlets Thursday as Mohammed Emwazi — a middle-class Briton with a degree in computer programming. The BBC reported that the Kuwaiti-born Emwazi is in his mid-20s and from West London. British authorities chose not to identify him earlier for operational reasons. “I have no doubt that Mohammed is Jihadi John,” one of Emwazi’s close friends told the Washington Post. “He was like a brother to me. . . .

    Trident question comes to the surface The SNP, Plaid Cymru and the Greens want Trident to be scrapped The loch at Faslane is very calm on a beautiful spring-like day, seagulls wheel above the jetty and its short, white radar tower. Beneath the still waters, I presume, lurks some of Britain's ageing nuclear deterrent. The future of Trident may not be much of an issue in the election, but it will be one of the most important, and expensive, decisions the new government makes. And it could be a vital issue in any negotiations if there is a hung...

    Britons have anxiously followed for nearly a week the hunt for three missing teenage schoolgirls who aren’t “missing” at all. The trio appear to have evaded efforts to track them down as they journeyed to Syria to join Islamic State. Authorities say the three girls lied to their families about their plans for the day on Feb. 17 to buy time to fly from London’s Gatwick Airport to Istanbul. From there they are believed to have traveled into Syria. One of the three allegedly was in contact via social media with Aqsa Mahmood, a 20-year-old Scottish woman who also became...

    More than 370,000 migrants who were admitted to Britain to work, study or go on holiday are now claiming out-of-work benefits, according to official figures compiled for the first time. The migrants, who can claim unemployment, housing and incapacity benefit, are costing taxpayers billions of pounds a year. In other countries, many would have had to return home after their visas expired or their employment ended. But Chris Bryant, shadow immigration minister, today blamed the Government and said the situation would only get worse due to lax border controls, rising migration and increasing unemployment. He said: "Tory ministers are resorting...

    Former colonial power Britain is one of the biggest donors among nations that contributed almost $850 million to government coffers in 2003-2004, about 48 percent of Uganda's budget. Since 1987, rich nations have bankrolled Uganda's economic recovery, which has been based on stability, market liberalisation and improved security in a country haunted by bloody memories of the late Idi Amin's dictatorship. Uganda's economy has grown by about 6 percent a year for more than a decade. British budget support is linked to reforms, officials say, including setting up rules for multiparty competition and separating state organs from Museveni's "no-party" Movement...

    A Valentine's Day cinema screening of Fifty Shades of Grey ended in chaos when three women were arrested for attacking a man. Witnesses claim the bust-up started after the victim asked the "worse for the wear" women to quieten down during a viewing on Saturday evening. Police then rushed to Grosvenor Cinema in Glasgow's west end where they arrested three women. Cinema visitors also claimed the man had been glassed and that staff were forced to wipe blood from seats before the next screening of the film.

    REPLACING Trident with a nuclear deterrent dropped from the air would save up to £13 billion for priority defence equipment spending, a think-tank has claimed in a new report. Trident nuclear submarines at Faslane are an “expensive and excessive” solution to the UK deterrence requirements and would have been ineffective even during the Cold War, CentreForum said in its analysis. Instead, the UK’s forthcoming F-35 Joint Strike Fighters – a stealth aircraft bought for conventional missions – should be adapted to deliver a “minimum nuclear deterrent” based upon a stockpile of 100 British built B61-12 nuclear bombs, the “independent liberal”...

    Ten thousand Muslims are protesting outside Downing Street and the Ministry of Defence against the publication of cartoons depicting Mohammed. The cartoons – which led to the brutal massacre at the French magazine Charlie Hebdo – were described by the group as a “violation of Islamic law”. The crowd held banners saying “Charlie and the abuse factory” and “learn some manners” as they called for the world to observe Muslim blasphemy rules. The group taunted the grieving families and supporters of the murdered Charlie Hebdo journalists by using the “#JeSuisCharlie” hashtag to tweet pictures of the rally. Men and women...

The city’s Labor MP Sarah Champion believes as many as one million children may have been victimized, describing it as a “national disaster” that requires the establishment of a task force to deal with the “horror.” Champion picks up the story following the release of a report, titled “The Independent Inquiry Into Child Exploitation...

    Ed Miliband still has a two in three chance of becoming Britain’s next prime minister, according to a new election model set up by the opinion polling firm Populus. But the Labour leader has only a 2 per cent chance of winning a majority under the model — as remote a chance as a Conservative outright victory. The imminent general election is one of the most difficult to predict in modern history, with most polls pointing towards another hung parliament. Several have even suggested that Labour and the Tories could get exactly the same number of seats.

    Great Britain has voted to allow the world’s first “three-parent” in vitro fertilization. The new technique uses the DNA of three people to prevent mothers from passing mitochondrial diseases on to their baby. The new treatment that was allowed by the British Parliament on Tuesday is known as “three-parent” in vitro fertilization (IVF) because the babies, born from genetically modified embryos, would have DNA from a mother, a father and from a female donor. In Britain’s House of Commons on Tuesday, health minister Jane Ellison started the debate on mitochondrial donation by urging support for this change. “This is a...

He began his career serving the British military as a Victorian-era mounted lancer and ended it as custodian of Britain's nuclear deterrent. But he is most renowned for an astounding five-year-tenure as Britain's wartime prime minister from May 10, 1940, to June 26, 1945, when he was voted out of office not long after the surrender of Nazi Germany.

The popularity of these dogs is down to the fact they are "wonderfully loyal, easily-trained breeds, suitable for single owners, couples or families", said Kennel Club secretary Caroline Kisko. But the dog map shows while Labradors are more popular in rural areas, it is Staffies that are favoured in big cities.

    According to CNN’s reporting, the series of bloody attacks on journalists in police in Paris over the course of this week has “electrified” the global jihadist movement. The suspicion that the two brothers who were responsible for the assault on the offices of Charlie Hebdo also had links to al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is likely to boost recruiting and fundraising efforts for that terrorist group. A resurgent al-Qaeda is already reportedly planning to follow up on the success of the Parisian attacks in the coming days. According to a warning from Britain’s MI5 intelligence service that was made...

    The Ministry of Defence has been forced to ask the US for help as it hunts for a suspected Russian submarine believed to be lurking off the coast of Scotland. Two U.S Navy aircraft were this week drafted in to carry out patrols in the North Atlantic in a bid to bridge the 'gaping chasm' in Britain's anti-submarine capability. It comes after the RAF's £4bn fleet of 'spy-in-the-sky' Nimrod surveillance aircraft was controversially scrapped in 2010, amid warning it would weaken Britain's defences.

    In the wake of the terrorist attack on the offices of French satirist paper Charlie Hebdo, one Muslim cleric justified the murders under Islamic law. ... Choudary’s entire argument excusing the Paris attack reveals the fundamental disconnect between views of civilizations. Radical Islamists have no intention of assimilating into their respective cultures or contributing to any kind of meaningful dialogue about religion and free speech. They are intent on terrorizing western citizens out of exerting their rights. Their plan of terrorism and intimidation, with the ultimate goal of imposing their religion on others is fundamentally anti-American and is not meant...
  • Nigel Farage blames Paris attack on 'rather gross policy of multi-culturalism'

    Nigel Farage has been accused of exploiting the murders of cartoonists in France for political gain after saying the attack was a result of “a really rather gross policy of multi-culturalism”. The UK Independence Party leader said there was a “fifth column” living in Britain and France responsible for terrorist attacks. He said the attacks underlined for "controlled immigration policy" with "full checks on everybody" who migrates to Britain. Theresa May, the Home Secretary, condemned the comments. "It is irresponsible to talk about a fifth column", she said. Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, said it was "utterly wrong" to attempt...

    The pro-life community from all across the world came together in prayer and action in an attempt to help a divided family from the United Kingdom who traveled to the United States for a late-term abortion.

The young woman traveled with her radically pro-abortion father by her side, he said, who was pressuring her to...

    A court in the U.K. has heard more about a British doctor who is under investigation for horrific crimes against women. According to court records, hospital worker Jimmy Savile had at least 103 victims across 28 hospitals where he worked over the years.

His celebrity status at the local hospitals from his charity work allowed him access to patients and oftentimes suspicious staff turned their heads, not wanting to know who Savile actually was. This week, courts heard about one terrible case in particular. This...

    That Bill Clinton is a serial adulterer is not news. That Clinton may have been involved with underage sex slaves is new. A new lawsuit has revealed the extent of former President Clinton's friendship with a fundraiser who was later jailed for having sex with an underage prostitute. Bill Clinton's relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, who served time in 2008 for his illegal sexual partners, included up multiple trips to the onetime billionaire's private island in the Caribbean where underage girls were allegedly kept as sex slaves. The National Enquirer has released new details about the two men's friendship, which seems...

A lawsuit filed by four women, who say federal prosecutors illegally ignored them and kept them in the dark...
