    An Australian teenager who broke an egg on a controversial far-right senator's head says he has given almost A$100,000 (£55,000; $69,000) to survivors of the Christchurch mosque attacks. Will Connolly egged Fraser Anning in March - prompting people to flood him with donations to pay his legal costs. Mr Anning had caused fury a day earlier when he said, on the day of the shootings, Muslim migration was to blame for them.

  • The Left is Not Letting the New Zealand Crisis Go to Waste

    “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” These are the words of Rahm Emanuel, advisor and fixer in both the Clinton and Obama administrations, as well as the current Mayor of Chicago. His words are also an important part of the playbook of the left, which takes every advantage of natural or man-made catastrophes to advance their agenda. All extreme weather events are said to be evidence of global warming or climate change, and the only way to prevent...

    In the wake of the recent mosque massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand, Nick Riemer, a senior lecturer in English and linguistics at the University of Sydney, offered up a suggestion for preventing more such atrocities by presumed white supremacists: stop universities from promoting Western civilization. In a Sydney Morning Herald opinion piece titled, “After Christchurch universities have a responsibility: abandon Ramsay,” Riemer argues that if “Australian universities really want to combat Islamophobia after Christchurch, only one course is possible: abandon Ramsay immediately.” He’s referring to the controversial Ramsay Centre for Western Civilisation located in the University of Sydney. The...

    CHRISTCHURCH – Smelling of fresh paint, the two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch where a gunman killed 50 worshipers last week reopened their doors on Saturday, with many survivors among the first to walk in and pray for those who died. At the Al Noor mosque, where more than 40 of the victims were killed by a suspected white supremacist, prayers resumed with armed police on site, but no graphic reminders of the mass shooting, New Zealand’s worst. Aden Diriye, who lost his 3-year-old son, Mucad Ibrahim, in the attack, came back to the mosque with his...

    Last Friday, in Christchurch, New Zealand, one of the more civilized places on earth, 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant, an Australian, turned on his cellphone camera and set out to livestream his massacre of as many innocent Muslim worshippers as he could kill. Using a semi-automatic rifle, he murdered more than 40 men, women and children at one mosque, drove three miles to another, and there killed seven more. Dozens are still wounded, suffering and dying.

    Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., has unleashed a barrage of openly anti-Semitic commentary. She suggested that Israel had "hypnotized the world." She recently suggested that Jewish money lay behind American support for Israel. Finally, she suggested that American Israel supporters are representatives of dual loyalty. Her fellow Democrats shielded her from blowback by subsuming a resolution that condemns her anti-Semitism within a broader resolution that condemns intolerance of all types. Many of them suggested that labeling Omar's anti-Semitism actually represents a type of censorship -- an attempt to quash debate about Israel, though none of Omar's comments even critiqued the Israeli...

    New Zealand Mass Shooter Will Have Justice but Not Infamy: 'We Will Give Him Nothing. Not Even His Name.' “He sought many things from his act of terror but one was notoriety,” Ardern said. “If you blast the names and faces of shooters on news stations and constantly repeat their names, there may be an inadvertent process of creating a blueprint.”

    A senior leader at the Deans Ave Mosque who lost his wife in the terror attack says he has forgiven the shooter. Farid Ahmed says the extraordinary gesture to the man who killed so many of his friends is what his wife would have wanted. The widower was first interviewed at the cordon on Friday shortly after the shooting broke out. At the time, he hadn't heard from his wife, and since then he's received terrible news. Husna Ahmed ran classes for children at the mosque, while her husband gave sermons. "She was probably more open than me; she...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has issued a stern warning to anyone considering entering the country for anti-Muslim reasons in the wake of the Christchurch terrorist attack. The 65-year-old referenced the Gallipoli campaign during the First World War and said during a public speech on Monday that anyone with heinous motives for entering the country would return 'in coffins'. He highlighted the failed invasion of Gallipoli peninsula back in 1916, by allied forces such as Australia and New Zealand. 'Your grandparents came, some of them returned in coffins. If you come as well like your grandfathers, be sure that you...

    This would be a golden moment for Muslims to think about how Americans felt after the San Bernardino, California, murders of co-workers by a Muslim couple. They should think about how Americans felt after the Muslim terrorism at the Boston Marathon and the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, that left 49 Americans dead and 53 wounded. They should think about the suffering of family members of the Fort Hood murders by a Muslim serving in our military. Again, this could be the perfect time for Muslims to show the world that they are interested in embracing modernity, but I suspect...

    The telecommunications industry is working together in an attempt to ensure any website housing footage of the Christchurch terrorist attack is inaccessible to New Zealanders. Spark, Vodafone, Vocus and 2degrees - the country’s largest internet service providers (ISP) - are blocking any website which has footage of the shootings. According to Geoff Thorn - CEO of New Zealand Telecommunications Forum (TCF) - this is an “unprecedented move” by the telecommunications industry, but one that they all agree is necessary. “The industry is working together to ensure this harmful content can’t be viewed by New Zealanders,” said Thorn.

    Social media companies have been told to “clean up their platforms” or be prepared to face the “force of the law” by Home Secretary Sajid Javid. Writing in the Daily Express, Mr Javid said: “Tech companies must do more to stop his messages being broadcast.” Despite the original video being taken down, it was quickly replicated and shared widely on other platforms, including YouTube and Twitter. Mr Javid urged people to stop viewing and sharing the “sick material” online, adding: “It is wrong and it is illegal.

    American Thinker ^ | 03/18/2019 | Alex Alexiev
    Reading the "Manifesto" of the Christchurch mass murderer, the first thing that strikes the reader is just how rational he is about what he expects will await him after his ghastly deed.  He hoped to survive, serve a life sentence, and be released after 27 years, all the while using his time in jail to "spread his ideals by media coverage."  Not unreasonably, he might have also said he would write a bestseller and become rich while in jail.  All of this thanks to the fact that the death penalty in New Zealand (and all of Europe) is considered cruel and unusual punishment...

    The American operator of a controversial website has smacked down a request by New Zealand police to hand over posts and video links that appeared on the site as the Christchurch terrorist attack unfolded. In an obscenity-laden email, Kiwi Farms founder Joshua Moon dismissed the plea by Detective Senior Sergeant John Michael as “a joke”, labelling New Zealand “a small, irrelevant island nation” and “s***hole country”. Moon is a former administrator of 8chan, the online message board where Brenton Tarrant posted details of his sick plan, along with a 73-page manifesto, hours before allegedly carrying out New Zealand’s deadliest terrorist...

    Freedoms of the press and speech are something which is near and dear to my heart. The ability for people to say what they want or broadcast what they want – without fear of government reprisal – is a key pillar of freedom and liberty. I may not like what someone posts on social media or expresses in a newspaper, blog, TV, or radio – but I will defend their ability to give an opinion or air their content. The recent actions by the New Zealand government in light of last week’s horrific terrorist attack only solidify my point...

    The Washington Post called the New Zealand mosque shooting “one of the worst cases of right-wing terrorism in years.” Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison called the killer "an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist."“The person giving a sign of allegiance to President Trump is the killer here,” said CNN’s John Berman. “He called him a symbol of white identity. The language he uses in this manifesto is all about invaders. It is all about invaders, similar to the killer at the synagogue in Pittsburgh and language President Trump used in a campaign ad before the midterm election. The word invader means something to people...
