"Six Turkish journalists jailed for life"
Ha! As we've already determined, that so-called `abortive coup' was a fake, rigged to give Erdogan excuses for arresting and torturing any honest thinkers in Turkey.
Erdogan wants to use rabid Islamisation - which is opposed to democracy, free thought AND free speech - to rule Turkey, thereby destroying the work and ideals of Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey.
Ataturk fought to establish a secular (non-religious) democratic Turkey with equal rights (and education) for women.
Erdogan, a rabid Islamist - i.e. murderous, misogynist and pervert (often pedophile) - fears and hates all that, especially education and rights for women.
Here's a link to real patriotic Turks, and earlier/wider background.

Six Turkish journalists jailed for life for 'coup links'
A Turkish court has sentenced six journalists to life in jail for alleged links to the July 2016 coup plotters.
The judgement came as another Turkish court decided to release German-Turkish journalist Deniz Yucel, who has been held for a year without charge.
The six were found guilty of links to US-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, blamed over the failed coup.
The court ruling was condemned by human rights groups, including the UN and OSCE representatives on media freedom.
"These harsh sentences are an unacceptable and unprecedented assault on freedom of expression and on the media in Turkey," said David Kaye, the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to freedom of expression, and Harlem Desir, the representative on media freedom for the Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe (OSCE).
The six sentenced journalists are Nazli Ilicak, Ahmet Altan, Mehmet Altan, Fevzi Yazici, Yakup Simsek and Sukru Tugrul Ozsengul.
The Istanbul court found them guilty of "attempting to abolish the order prescribed by the Turkish constitution or to bring in a new order", Turkish media reported.
The Altan brothers - both veteran journalists and writers - were accused of giving coded messages in a television talk show on the eve of the coup attempt.
Nazli Ilicak is also a well-known journalist in Turkey and has written for a number of newspapers, including Hurriyet and Sabah.

Assange: corrupt courts (and BBC)
Ha! Just heard BBC radio doing an Orwellian re-write of reality: pretending the arrest warrant for Julian Assange was about "crime" or "justice". Absolute crap!
Informed folk know that the USA was determined to (illegally) grab Assange and (illegally) jail him for life - for telling the truth!
SO the USA needed corrupt co-operation from Sweden, which agreed to pretend that a consensual party-get-together involving Assange and two good-time girls had been a `sexual assault'. (For goodness sake, Assange was out-numbered by two strapping women.)
It was easy to get the women to lie, the authorities could promise USA tax-payers' resources as bribes.
Finally, because Assange by then was working in London, the USA needed to get corrupt UK politicos (and even more corrupt English judges) to collude in issuing / serving an `arrest warrant', ostensibly solely to bring Assange to Sweden to answer questions - Ha!
In fact, informed folk knew the USA had already deployed `snatch teams' to London and Sweden to kidnap Assange, without any pretence of "justice" - they were simply determined to punish Assange for telling the truth!
Everything since then has been even more openly corrupt - no honest judge or politico believes that justice would be served by arresting Assage (for an offense they know didn't happen), and then allowing him to be illegally abducted to the USA.

Julian Assange: Warrant for his arrest upheld by court
An arrest warrant for the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been upheld by Westminster Magistrates' Court.
The warrant was issued when Mr Assange, 46, breached bail conditions in 2012 by seeking political refuge at the Ecuadorean embassy.
He was facing sexual assault allegations in Sweden. The allegations were dropped in May 2017.
Mr Assange has been staying at the embassy since 2012, claiming he fears extradition to the US.
Due to the warrant, Mr Assange would be arrested as soon as he left Ecuadorean soil but, as there is not an extradition treaty between the UK and Ecuador, he cannot be arrested inside the embassy.

The radio just told me that a real personality had passed, so looked up Hannah Hauxwell.

Hannah Hauxwell, the lonely figure of Baldersdale, whose death at 91 was announced this week, had lived two opposite lives: the first in spectacular isolation, the other in the gaze of the world.
The watershed came in January 1973, when a Yorkshire Television documentary about a few hardy souls eking out an existence in the harsh north Pennine winter, was screened to the nation. The programme's lyrical tone and intense, immaculate cinematography had marked it out as a classic even before the introduction of its central character after the commercial break.
But it is no exaggeration to say that the interview with her that followed broke the nation's heart. It was not just that she had next to nothing - her income was less than £200 a year and there was neither electricity nor running water in her tumbledown cottage - but that she felt no right to any more.
Alone and unmarried, she spoke with the simple eloquence of one transplanted from another age, and when she had finished, and gone back out to tend her smallholding in the snow, she was a national heroine.
The television critic Sean Day-Lewis spoke next day of her `extraordinary dignity, simplicity and acceptance' which, he said, "shone without a hint of acting or editorial manipulation".

Abattoir boss and three slaughtermen admit causing unnecessary suffering to animals after secret footage of halal killing showed workers HACKING and SAWING at sheep's throats
Abattoir boss and three workers admit causing unnecessary suffering to sheep
Undercover footage of slaughterhouse brutality at the Bowood Lamb abattoir near Thirsk, North Yorkshire, in December 2014 sparked a public outcry
Secret filming showed workers 'hacking and sawing' at the animals' throats
Three workers and the boss of a halal abattoir have admitted causing unnecessary suffering to sheep as they were being killed following a three-year battle to bring the case to court.
Shocking undercover footage of slaughterhouse brutality at the Bowood Lamb abattoir near Thirsk, North Yorkshire, in December 2014 provoked a public outcry.
The secret filming by Animal Aid showed workers 'hacking and sawing' at animals' throats, as well as sheep being kicked in the head and hurled into metal walls.
Undercover footage of slaughterhouse brutality at the Bowood Lamb abattoir near Thirsk, North Yorkshire, in December 2014 sparked a public outcry
All abattoirs must be approved by the Food Standards Agency, but the regulatory body does not check whether halal meat is prepared according to religious rules.
The law requires abattoirs to stun animals before slaughter to prevent unnecessary suffering, but there are exemptions for Jewish and Muslim producers.
Under the halal code, animals are supposed to be killed quickly, with a single sweep of a surgically-sharp knife. They should not see the knife before they are slaughtered, or witness the death of other animals.
But the Animal Aid video revealed how many of those practices were being flouted.
Its secretly installed spy cameras showed staff taunting the animals, waving knives in front of them, smacking them on the head and shouting at them.
The footage led to calls by campaigners for CCTV to be installed in all abattoirs to prevent similar cruelty, and a ban on the practice of killing animals without stunning them first, which is allowed for Jewish and Muslim producers.
Last year the FSA announced CCTV was being made compulsory in all slaughterhouses across England.
On Monday the case against the men got underway at Northallerton Magistrates Court where a four-day trial was due to be held after they pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The men changed their pleas to guilty in some of the charges relating to offences committed between December 1 and 9 2014.
Kabeer Hussain, 44, of Bradford, admitted one charge of failing to give 24 sheep sufficient time to lose consciousness after they were slaughtered.
Kazeem Hussain, 53, also from Bradford, pleaded guilty to two charges - one of not giving 19 sheep sufficient time to lose consciousness after they were slaughtered and a further charge of failing to cut the throats of six sheep in the required manner with a single cut.
William Woodward, 32, the owner of Bowood Farms Ltd, admitted failing to prevent acts by several employees that caused the animals to suffer.
A similar charge against his father, Robert, 68, was dropped after no evidence was offered by the prosecution.
The case was adjourned for reports and transferred to Leeds Magistrates Court for a hearing on March 2.
The law requires abattoirs to stun animals before slaughter to prevent unnecessary suffering, but there are exemptions for Jewish and Muslim producers
Slaughtermen were filmed 'taunting and frightening' animals by waving knives, smacking them on the head and shouting at them
At one point, the high-profile case was declared legally void by a district judge because of delays in the prosecution being brought and evidence being passed between the Food Standards Agency and the Crown Prosecution Service.
The CPS appealed against the ruling and won permission to continue with the case.
Bowood, which once had a turnover of £29million, was sold out of administration to Yorkshire Halal Meat Supplier in 2016.

The levels of drug-related crime in parts of the Paris Metro have seemingly spiralled so out-of-control that train drivers are refusing to stop at certain stations.
The Unsa RATP union, which represents the Paris Metro and bus network, has sent a letter to Gerard Collomb, the French Minister of the Interior, as well as Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris and Valerie Pecresse, the President of the Regional Council of Île-de-France, saying that certain metro stations, particularly on lines 12 and 4 in the north-east, were being used by drug dealers as a base and as a result, drug-related crime and violence has been on the rise.
Paris Metro drivers have to skip stations as crack dealers take over platforms - union
In a joint statement with the group SOS Users, the union said dealers and their loitering customers were aggressive and often dangerous.
"Between the brawls that occur on the platforms, which sometimes end up happening on the train or across the tracks, you could hit someone, or crush them," trade union representative Jean-Marc Judith told RTL, adding that the number of attacks on travellers and RATP staff "are becoming increasingly dramatic."
The union said that the Marx Dormoy and Marcadet-Poissonniers stops, on lines 12 and 4 respectively, are among the most dangerous stations, where crack cocaine users, dealers and homeless people are often found screaming, shouting, fighting or sprawled out across the platforms.
The situation has worsened over the past few months, as Judith recalled an incident where an alarm was pulled, and when one of his colleagues went to investigate he was attacked by two people, as reported by the Le Parisien.
The union has called for a stronger, regular and better-coordinated police presence at the stations to ensure employee and passenger safety, while at the same time ridding the area of unsavoury commuters.
A meeting between union representatives, local officials and government ministers, including those tasked with fighting drug addiction, is scheduled for January 19.

Jordan urged to end animal mistreatment at Petra site
Petra is one of the wonders of the world. Carved out of rock, the sudden entrance into the ancient Nabatean city through a narrow passage is breathtaking.
It is the crown jewel of the Jordanian tourist industry. But there has long been concern about the treatment of the more than 1,300 working animals there.
Donkeys haul tourists up 900 steep and eroded steps to the Monastery, a monument miraculously built out of rock on the mountainside.
Horses, mules and camels carry tourists to the city and through it - some pulling carriages and carts - enduring beatings and lack of food and water as they do so.
Jordanian organisations and their international partners have tried to improve their conditions at the Unesco World Heritage site. But Peta says nowhere near enough has been done.
Last year, it amassed video and photographic evidence of cruelty to animals there, which showed deep wounds on many of the animals from chains and ropes tied around them.

Peta says donkeys are forced to climb up and down steep hills with heavy loads on their backs
Drivers regularly beat and whip the animals to force them to move, according to Peta
Peta though claims that only lip service has been paid to improving the lot of the animals.
For example, it says it found that a sign at Petra asking tourists to report mistreatment leads to an email address that does not reply and a website that does not work.

Married imam 'is caught trying to meet 15-year-old boy for sex after grooming him on gay dating app Grindr - then says he fears being KILLED because homosexuality is against his religion'
Paedophile hunters have released footage which shows allowed a respected imam allegedly trying to meet a 15-year-old boy for sex after grooming him with offers of money on a gay dating app.
The married father-of-five was snared by the vigilante group outside an address in Flixton, Greater Manchester, and was accused of traveling nearly an hour in the car to abuse the boy while his mother was at work.
'Justice Will Be Served' posed as a young boy on Grindr and filmed their encounter with the 45-year-old, who a mosque in Blackburn, Lancashire.
The man squirms as he is read messages which he allegedly sent to who he thought was the boy, but was in fact the paedophile hunters. He allegedly asked the boy 'how much' he wanted to perform a sex act after contacting the account on the gay dating app.
The married father-of-five was snared by paedophile hunters outside an address in Flixton, Greater Manchester
He was accused of traveling nearly an hour in the car to abuse the boy while his mother was at work
While planning the meeting online, he allegedly said he would bring a folder so he could claim he was there for a work appointment if anybody became suspicious.
When confronted by the group, the accused denied the accusations leveled against him but admitted he 'could get killed' because homosexuality is 'against his religion'.
The man has been suspended from his role at the mosque, which it is claimed he held for more than 20 years, with a police investigation now underway.
The footage which shows the confrontation was posted onto Facebook Live yesterday and has been viewed more than 140,000 times.
As he is interrogated by the paedophile hunters, the accused tries desperately to cover his face with a scarf.
One of the hunters asks: 'So, you're a Muslim and it's against your religion. Is it against your religion to be a homosexual?'
He replies: 'Yes, it is. I could get killed.'
The hunter says: 'There's nothing wrong with being homosexual, no. But you're saying to me it's against your religion to be homosexual. So, you do know it's wrong to meet, especially a child.'
Covering his mouth with his hand, he says: 'I would get killed.'
The accused then tries to roll up his car window and tries to grab his keys but is stopped by the group who wedge the door open.
Messages which the man allegedly sent to the made-up boy are read aloud, with one of the hunters asking: 'You keep asking me how much I want for sex. "Need to know how much you want." They've replied back, saying: "I don't know, we can discuss that when you get here."'
The accused covers his face with a scarf as he is quizzed by the paedophile hunters
He protests that he thought the person he was meeting would be 18, but is swiftly told: 'No, he said to you on a number of occasions he is 15. You've brought cash with you today. You came here to meet him for sex, mate.'
He appears to ask to speak privately off camera but they reply: 'Never gonna happen.'
As the suspect then takes out his phone, one of the hunters snatches it away from him, accusing him of trying to reset the device.
He continues to quiz the suspect, adding: 'Do any of your family members know that you're on Grindr? Are you homosexual? I mean you're perfectly in your right to be.'
The other hunter adds: 'I don't get how you could pray to any God knowing that you're meeting 15-year-old guys.'
He then remains silent until the police arrive, and the hunters hand over their own evidence as he is taken away for questioning.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: 'A 45-year-old man arrested on suspicion of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity has been bailed.'
A spokesman for Justice Will Be Served said: 'I personally have talked to one of his children and I'm horrified by how this has affected him. His life, his family's life has been ripped apart by the secret fantasies of a man who was meant to protect and provide for them.'
The man protests that he thought the person he was meeting would be 18, but is swiftly told he knew the person he was meeting up with said his age was 15

ISLAMIST told poppy-selling army cadets as young as 12 that he was going to bomb their barracks is jailed for 19 months
A man has been jailed after threatening to kill a group of army cadets and blow up their barracks after they had been selling poppies for the Royal British Legion.
Rabbnawaz Ali made the threats to a group of youngsters, aged between 12 and 16, who were left frightened by the comments made.
The group were returning to the barracks in Sheepscar, Leeds, West Yorkshire, after selling poppies in Leeds city centre.
Leeds Crown Court heard how Ali approached the group and said: `Where are you off next lads, Iraq?'
He added: `Better be careful because me and my Isis brothers will kill you all. Your day will come.'
The court heard some of the boys were shocked by the comments and went inside the barracks before the instructor challenged Ali and threatened to call police.
Ali then said to the instructor: `Your time will come. We are going to bomb your compound.'
Ali was arrested over the incident, which occurred in November 2016, after he carried out an arson attack at a betting shop on January 18 last year.
The court heard Ali assaulted a member of staff and set fire to waste paper bins after losing £60 on a roulette machine.
Ali, of Chapeltown, Leeds, pleaded guilty to racially aggravated threatening behaviour, arson, assault and criminal damage.
The court heard Ali had been diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic.
He was made the subject of an indefinite hospital order under the Mental Health Act, combined with a 19-month prison sentence.
Recorder Christopher Smith said Ali would be detained in hospital but he could be transferred to a prison if it was no longer considered necessary.

Lord Lawson's climate victory over the BBC: Broadcaster forced to admit it distorted facts after former chancellor complained about programme
The BBC says it was wrong to say reindeer were dying out due to climate change
It admits it should have been clearer in a Simon Reeve documentary
The admission comes less than three months after the BBC issued a formal apology for a Today programme interview with Lord Lawson
Lord Lawson has scored a victory against the BBC, after it was forced to admit that it distorted the facts when it claimed that reindeer are dying out because of global warming.
The BBC2 travelogue, Russia with Simon Reeve, claimed that reindeer populations across the north of the country were `in steep decline because of climate change'.
However, Lord Lawson, the former Tory Chancellor and renowned climate change sceptic, complained to the broadcaster - pointing that 17 out of 19 types of Eurasian Reindeer are now either stable or increasing in numbers.
The admission comes less than three months after the BBC issued a formal apology for a Today programme interview with Lord Lawson (above), during which he claimed there had been no confirmation that 'extreme weather events' were on the rise.
The BBC's claim is `a distortion of known facts and constitutes a serious factual error,' he wrote. `Given that climate change is such a controversial subject, extra care should be taken.'
The BBC stopped short of issuing an apology, but has admitted that it should have been clearer.
`This programme suggested that many reindeer populations are in steep decline because of climate change. It would have been more accurate to say that many reindeer populations are threatened by it,' it said.
Lord Lawson, who is chair of the Global Warming Policy Foundation, claimed on the August broadcast that there has been no confirmation that `extreme weather events' are on the rise.
Simon Richards, chief executive of libertarian lobby group The Freedom Association, said: `Global warming snowflakes are determined to silence Lord Lawson for daring to question their views. They are the book-burners of our age.'
Frank Furedi, a sociologist at the University of Kent, added that the BBC's `culture of apology' is `insidious'.

According to John Simpson, the BBC's World Affairs editor, Mrs Merkel's second bid to build a coalition government "is not looking good".
Talks to form another 'grand coalition' with the Social Democrats (SPD) are set to begin tomorrow, but experts believe any deal struck will be voted down by party members.
"It is not looking good for Merkel, the once most-powerful leader in Europe. A recent poll showed 50 percent in the country want her to go.
"This feels like the last chapter for this irreplacable European legend."

FBI 'offered British spy $50,000 to corroborate his claims in the dirty dossier on Trump - which he never did'
Claims that FBI offered ex-MI6 spy cash for Trump dirt have re-emerged
Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein refused to answer when asked in inquiry last week
Republicans accuse disgraced agent Peter Strzok of using dossier for wiretap
Strzok texts mention an 'insurance policy' in the event of Trump's election
Questions over FBI integrity are mounting as Mueller election probe nears end
By Keith Griffith For Dailymail.com
Claims have resurfaced that the FBI offered the British spy behind the 'golden showers' dirty dossier $50,000 to corroborate his claims about now-President Donald Trump.
'I believe, just from examining the public sources, that the FBI offered Christopher Steele $50,000 if he could corroborate the dossier. He either couldn't, didn't, wouldn't, and they didn't pay him the money,' news analyst Andrew Napolitano told Stuart Varney on Fox Business Monday.
Former MI6 agent Steele's dossier claims the Russians possess compromising information that could be used to blackmail Trump, and alleges the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
Napolitano appears to be basing his claim on an April report from the New York Times, which cited two sources claiming that an FBI agent met Steele in Rome in October of 2016, just weeks before the presidential election.
The agent offered Steele $50,000 if he could get 'solid corroboration of his reports', which the FBI ultimately never paid out, the report said.
Last week, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein refused to tell the House Judiciary Committee whether the FBI had paid or offered to pay for the dossier.

"Turkey brain drain"
Yup, can sympathize with these folk. They're being oppressed by Erdogan because he wants a `hard-line' Islamic country- that is: populated by mentally-subnormal, easily-led, inbred morons!
N.b. some of my NATO Turkish colleagues were both academics (male and female - scroll down) and military types, and I was proud to know them, because the academics were gifted and rigorous, and the military guys were tough and determined.
However the plain facts are that, like most Muslims the majority of Turks have never read a book or had ANY intellectual thought. [See international assessment]
So, if Erdogan has his way the world will be burdened with even more morons motivated only by instant gratification (gang-rapes, pedophile rapes and random `religious' murders), and by lethal hatred for anyone who can actually THINK!

Turkey brain drain: Crackdown pushes intellectuals out
Bulent Somay didn't choose to leave - he feels Turkey pushed him out.
The 61-year-old professor packed his life into a dozen boxes, bade farewell to his students at Istanbul's Bilgi University and moved to a new teaching position in Brussels, where he believes he's no longer at risk.
He is just one of a growing brain drain of those opposed to Turkey's direction.
"We're not even feeling safe during lectures anymore", he said, clearing the shelves in his Istanbul apartment.
"We have to watch what we're saying. Some students record you and you see it on pro-government media - that you're insulting the president. You write something and you start getting threats and insults."
He stacked another box with his prized academic books, deciding which of his 2,000 he would take.
"I used to have a very healthy relationship with my religious students," he recalled. "But now they feel they're the elite and we're the pariah. Years ago, they were trying to get power. Now they have it, they're questioning our right to share it."
"We have to watch what we're saying," says Mr Somay, who is leaving Turkey
Bulent Somay is one of 1,128 academics who signed a petition in 2016 calling on Turkey's government to cease armed conflict with Kurdish militants.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused them of treason. A pro-government mafia boss warned he'd "spill their blood and bathe in it". The scholars' universities duly expelled them.

"Boris Johnson clears up his USSR-Sparta comparison"
Ha! Boris' ignorance is induced by the UK education system. In fact "The Spartans" _were_ admired (for their civil constitution and for military abilities) by many contemporary commentators, including the Athenian Xenophon.
But no-one at that time realized the horrible effects the Spartans were inflicting on themselves by their compulsive habit of first cousin marriage (or even closer in isolated areas) purely for the sake of retention of family wealth - as many Muslims + Hindus do today. [I.e. - They were a quasi-feudal slave-owning society, closely tied to their agricultural holdings.]
However part of what was happening to them was related by Xenophon, who was aware that the Spartan single-sex military-type schools (very harsh, today we would say brutal) tended to turn out homosexual pedophiles.
[Xenophon was a hetero Athenian - read his `Anabasis'.]
And the other effect, even more horrible maybe, was the shrinkage of their intellects, until they could hardly think or speak!
[That was warned-of quite recently by Erwin Schrödinger, of Quantum fame]
That's why we now talk of `laconic' folk as using few words: it really refers to the Laconian heartland of Sparta, where most folk lost the power of articulate speech altogether, before Spartan society collapsed completely.
But you can understand why Boris (and his Harrovian/Etonian friends) cling to the "glorified" Spartan myth - it covers-up a great deal of evil.

When asked by a journalist about his recent comparison during an interview with The Times, the British foreign secretary aimed to put the record straight. He said he "wouldn't want Russian colleagues here to think that those words were applied to Russia today." Instead, he insisted those words "were applied to the Soviet Union of my childhood.

After St. Petersburg Explosion, Putin Orders Police to `Liquidate' Terrorists
MOSCOW - President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, speaking a day after an explosion in St. Petersburg, said on Thursday that he had ordered security agents to "take no prisoners" during terrorist attacks, and authorized the police to "liquidate the bandits on the spot."
Mr. Putin has long burnished his image as tough on terrorism, and the comments were noteworthy not so much for signifying a change in policy - Russian counterterrorism forces have shot and killed dozens of terrorism suspects over the years - as for displaying the antiterrorism swagger he was known for early in his tenure.
But a series of attacks and thwarted plots have recently brought terrorism back into the limelight. Mr. Putin's comments came a day after a bomb exploded in a grocery store in St. Petersburg, Russia's second-largest city, wounding about a dozen people. And earlier this month, Mr. Putin thanked President Trump after the Central Intelligence Agency passed to Russian security services information about an Islamic State plot to detonate bombs in a cathedral and other sites, also in St. Petersburg.
At first, the police did not refer to the grocery store explosion as terrorism, but Mr. Putin said on Thursday that it was, in fact, a terrorist attack.
The explosive device had a power equivalent to about 200 grams, or seven ounces, of TNT, the Russian authorities said, and it was laced with bolts to act as shrapnel. A man the authorities described as having a non-Slavic appearance had placed a backpack containing the bomb in a locker at the supermarket, then fled.

French cities overwhelmed by refugee flow, govt must step in urgently - mayors
The mayors of seven major French cities say they have been `backed up against a wall' by an unending influx of refugees. Paris must address the strain on the areas, which are struggling to accommodate new arrivals, they wrote.
The mayors of Lille, Bordeaux, Strasbourg, Grenoble, Rennes, Toulouse and Nantes have called out the government for inaction, asking it to do more to tackle the refugee crisis. The resources at the mayors' disposal are far from adequate to cover the needs of asylum seekers who want to stay at already-overcrowded shelters, the mayors wrote in an article to Le Monde on Saturday.
Despite the steady increase in the number of available housing facilities, they are all `completely full,' according to the mayors, referring to a rise in refugee applications towards the end of the year. `The year 2017 ends with a massive increase in asylum applications and the arrival of newcomers puts extreme pressure [on local administrations],' they wrote.
The worsening situation with the lack of shelters means the city administrations are `backed up against the wall,' they said. The mayors went on to suggest more areas should share the burden, and proposed setting up a `network of solidarity between the cities of France.' They then demanded the government hold an extended meeting `at the highest level' `without delay' to discuss the `social emergency.'
In response to the plea, the French Interior Ministry issued a circular, proposing a resettlement scheme that would result in the mobilization of some 20,000 housing units by 2018, as reported by AFP. The program envisions mobilizing public and private property for the purpose of `balanced distribution' of refugees across France. It also asked the French prefects to establish `mobile teams' that would identify migrants living in emergency shelters.

France has been one of the European countries most heavily affected by the migrant crisis. After the bulldozing of its infamous Calais `Jungle' camp in October 2016, some 6,000 of its residents were relocated to various migrant centers across the country. However, makeshift camps are still being set up by asylum seekers, with some sleeping rough on the streets of the French capital, sparking anger from local residents and sanitary concerns. Last week, a group of Parisians said they would start a hunger strike if police didn't relocate some 100 Afghan and Syrian migrants camping in a northern Paris neighborhood.

Texas prisons ban `A Charlie Brown Christmas' but not Hitler's `Mein Kampf'
Thousands of books are considered prohibited reading for inmates doing time in Texas prisons. The list of banned and permissible material, however, has raised some eyebrows.
The Texas prison system has banned more than 10,000 selections from the shelves of their on-site libraries, yet it is sometimes difficult to find the logic behind the decision-making process.
For example, Alice Walker's `The Color Purple,' which was awarded the 1983 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, will not be found in Texas prisons. Yet inmates may cuddle up at night with a copy of Adolf Hitler's `Mein Kampf,' the notoriously anti-Semitic tract that Hitler began writing, ironically, while behind bars.
`The Color Purple' is forbidden because it describes a rape scene.
Other selections with completely innocuous titles - including `Hello Kitty,' `Harry Potter Film Wizardry' and `The Amazing Spider Man' - are prohibited not because of their content, but because they may contain pop-up sections or multilayer pages with which it may be possible to conceal contraband.
Other books are banned from prison libraries in Texas because they may provide certain information that prison officials would prefer not to be disseminated. For example, the `History of Pubs and Pubs Signs' got blacklisted because it contains a section outlining the manufacture of alcohol.
Not everyone, however, agrees that there should be a blacklist for certain controversial books.
"To block access to `Where's Waldo' on the one hand, and Shakespeare on the other, doesn't preserve order," James LaRue, the director of the Office for Intellectual Freedom of the American Library Association, told the New York Times. "It preserves ignorance and imprisonment. All too often, prison censorship, in addition to being an arbitrary abuse of authority, denies the incarcerated the chance to get out of jail and stay out."
Nevertheless, some of the titles from the lengthy banned list - including `Concealed Carry Handguns,' `The Complete Survival Guide,' `The Idiot's Guide to Kickboxing' and `FBI Handbook of Crime Scene Forensics' - seem like obvious choices to keep out of the hands of the general prisoner population.
At the same time, one may wonder how `My Awakening' by David Duke, an American white nationalist, got the green light.
Novels of an erotic nature are only banned if the sexual behavior is unlawful, which explains why some of E.L. James' `Fifty Shades' books were deemed inappropriate.
"If the book does not violate the uniform offender correspondence policy, then offenders are allowed to have it," Clark, a spokesman at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, told The New York Times. "Offenders have access to thousands of publications."
Prisoners serving time in the Texas prison system have access to more than 248,000 titles, which were detailed by the Dallas Morning News in November.
According to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, a publication may be banned because it contains:
- Information on the manufacture of explosives, weapons or drugs.
- Material that a reasonable person would construe as written solely for the purpose of communicating information designed to achieve the breakdown of prisons through offender disruption, like strikes, riots.
- Graphic presentations of illegal sex acts, "such as rape, incest, sex with a minor, bestiality, necrophilia or bondage."
- Sexually explicit images. "Naked or partially covered buttocks" does not necessarily mean automatic disapproval. Staff review required for publications containing nudity on a case-by-case basis.
- Information on criminal schemes or "how to avoid detection of criminal schemes."
- Contraband that cannot be removed.

Mini-gallows for Merkel, Gabriel allowed to be sold in Germany
A German businessman has been allowed to sell miniature gallows `reserved' for Chancellor Angela Merkel and Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel. Prosecutors found the handicraft to be `satirical souvenirs' and even `works of art.'
An owner of a small online shop located in the eastern German town of Chemenitz has put miniature souvenir gallows on sale. The wooden crafts have notes attached to them that read: "Reserved for Angela `Mummy' Merkel" and "Reserved for Sigmar `low-life' Gabriel" as well as words "betrayers of the nation" written on the gallows themselves.
The miniatures offered by Jens Doebel's online shop appear to be small replicas of a life-size gallows used at one of the demonstrations held by the anti-Islamic, anti-immigrant PEGIDA movement back in 2015. The `souvenirs' had attracted the attention of the local prosecutor's office.
On Wednesday, prosecutors said that they dropped the case against the entrepreneur due to the absence of a crime in the act. Doebel's actions constitute neither a "public call for committing a crime" nor "the breach of public order through a criminal threat," the Chemnitz Prosecutor's Office said, as cited by German media.
The prosecutors further explained that the handicraft apparently only symbolizes a wish for "political death" of the said politicians and nothing more. "As there are no elements of crime, the miniature gallows cannot be confiscated by the Prosecutor's Office as well as their sales cannot be prohibited," the prosecutors' statement says, according to German Die Zeit daily. According to the Berliner Morgenpost, the prosecutors called the gallows works of "art" that should not be taken seriously.
Doebel himself also said that his handicrafts are "just satire." A description to the gallows on his online-shop's website says that the souvenirs "have satirical character and should not be viewed as a call for murder or any other crime."
The prosecutors' decision, however, provoked an angry reaction from some German politicians and legal experts. Renate Kuenast, a member of the Green Party, demanded the regional Prosecutor General's Office in Dresden give legal assessment to the decision made by the Chemnitz prosecutors. "Prosecutors should not allow themselves to be turned into far-right extremists' lapdogs due to immeasurable naivety," she told the Mitteldeutsche Zeitung.

A Berlin lawyer, Christian Schertz, described the prosecutors' decision as a failure of the rule of law. "It's part of a series of wrong decisions," he told Deutsche Welle (DW). "Of course it is hate speech, but in any case it is libel as well. I mean, there couldn't be a worse insult than threatening to kill someone," he added.
The secretary general of Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union party office in Saxony, Michael Kretschmer, turned to Twitter to say that, even though the prosecutors "see no elements of crime" in this case, it is still "not only tasteless" but also "goes beyond the pale" and "poisons the [political] climate in our land."
According to Die Welt, the shop owner indeed has some links to the German far-right extremist groups, including contacts to some members of the neo-Nazi National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD). Deutsche Welle reported that the man attended PEGIDA rallies and even faced accusations of far-right extremism from the German domestic security agency, the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV).
In the meantime, Doebel seems to be capitalizing on the hype around his handicraft. The description to the gallows now calls them "Doebel's scandal gallows," which are "well known due to the radio and television."
"We have original of the original only here", it adds. The price of the controversial souvenir has also gone up as it is now being sold for almost €30 ($35) while not so long ago German media said they cost only €15.

Toilet paper 'now always put out' at Stoke girls school
A girls' school where pupils avoided using the toilet because they were forced to ask for paper now routinely puts rolls out, its head teacher said.
Ofsted criticised the independent Park Avenue Girls' High School, in Stoke-on-Trent, saying students sometimes avoided using toilets for a whole day.
Head teacher Abdul Salloo said rolls were now put out at the Muslim school.
He added washing was more common in Asian culture and those facilities had always been available.
Inspectors rated the 34-pupil school as "inadequate" after their inspection.
Ofsted's report said: "Toilet paper is available from the school office when pupils request it.
"Pupils told inspectors that they sometimes avoided using toilets for the whole school day because of this."
Mr Salloo said the school had never meant any harm to its pupils.
"In our culture, Asian culture, we wash, not only wipe. There have always been washing facilities available," he said.
"There were toilet rolls, they were just not always out."
During the Ofsted visit, which took place from 10-12 October, school leaders began to put paper into the toilets, provide soap and suitable drinking water, Mr Salloo said. Inspectors had noticed these were not always put out.
The report also raised safety concerns, saying rooms accessible to the girls had broken windows and sharp glass.
Fluorescent lights were also uncovered in rooms where pupils were not wearing shoes, which Ofsted said meant they risked injuring their feet.
Mr Salloo said the school was working on a new building and some issues may have been "overlooked" while that was completed.
He said: "There are still a few bits and bobs to be done.
"We didn't mean to harm our children."

Egyptian lawyer jailed for saying women in ripped jeans should be raped
An Egyptian lawyer has been sentenced to three years in prison for saying that women who wear ripped jeans should be raped in punishment.
Nabih al-Wahsh, a prominent conservative, was also fined 20,000 Egyptian pounds (£839; $1,130).
The lawyer made the remarks on a TV panel show in October, during a debate on a draft law on prostitution.
"Are you happy when you see a girl walking down the street with half of her behind showing?" he said.
He added: "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."
Mr Wahsh said that women who wore revealing clothing were "inviting men to harass them", and said "protecting morals is more important than protecting borders".
The prosecutor brought charges against Mr Wahsh after a public outcry.
The National Council for Women's Rights condemned the remarks, saying they were a "flagrant call" for rape, in violation of "everything in the Egyptian constitution".
The council has now filed a complaint about the statement to the Supreme Council for Media Regulation about the broadcast which aired on 19 October.
Mr Wahsh has previously called the Holocaust "imaginary" and declared himself a proud anti-Semite.
"If I see any Israeli, I will kill him," he said during a separate TV panel show.
In October last year, Mr Wahsh was involved in a TV studio brawl with a cleric, after the cleric suggested women should not necessarily have to wear a headscarf.

Damian Green porn row: Police in 'dangerous territory'
Ex-detectives who disclosed that legal pornography was found on Damian Green's office computer are in "dangerous territory", a former police chief says.
Sir Peter Fahy, ex-chief constable of Greater Manchester, said it was vital police were "not involved in politics".
Ex-attorney general Dominic Grieve said their actions were "very worrying" and smacked of the "police state".
First Secretary of State Mr Green denies watching or downloading pornography on his computer
What is the row all about?
The allegations date back to November 2008 when the Conservatives were in opposition and Damian Green was their immigration spokesman
He embarrassed the Labour government with a series of leaks about illegal immigration and other issues.
Police raided his Parliamentary office as part of an inquiry into how he got his hands on confidential documents
His office computer was seized and he was detained for nine hours - sparking fury among Tory MPs
No charges were brought against the MP or civil servant Christopher Galley, who passed unauthorised material to Mr Green, although the official was sacked
The officer in charge of the inquiry, Bob Quick - widely criticised by Tory MPs for the raid - resigned six months later over an alleged security breach
But a month ago, Mr Quick disclosed that pornographic material had been found on the seized computer, adding that the police had not pursued the matter at the time or told Mr Green about it
The matter has since been investigated by the Cabinet Office as part of a wider inquiry into claims of inappropriate behaviour by Mr Green towards journalist Kate Maltby

The "Rohingya" males have been acting like most inbred and pervert Muslim males - abducting and raping children, gang-raping young women in the street, and acid-attacking or murdering any woman who defied them.
It's no surprise that the civil and peaceful Burmese have finally lost patience with those genetically-diseased, pervert "Rohingya" morons in Burma.
In fact it's a wonder the Burmese haven't risen up and wiped out the "Rohingya" completely, as existentially dangerous degenerates.

We were lied to! Secret document FCO 30/1048 kept truth about EU from British for 30 years
A SECRET document, which remained locked away for 30 years, advised the British Government to COVER-UP the realities of EU membership so that by the time the public realised what was happening it would be too late.
Almost all of the shocking predictions - from the loss of British sovereignty, to monetary union and the over-arching powers of European courts - have come true.
But damningly for Tory Prime Minister Edward Heath, and all those who kept quiet about the findings in the early 70s, the document, known as FCO30/1048, was locked away under Official Secrets Act rules for almost five decades.
The classified paper, dated April 1971, suggested the Government should keep the British public in the dark about what EEC membership means predicting that it would take 30 years for voters to realise what was happening by which time it would be too late to leave.
That last detail was the only thing the disgraceful paper - prepared for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) - got wrong.
The unknown author - a senior civil servant - correctly predicted the then European Economic Community (the EEC effectively became the EU in 1993) was headed for economic, monetary and fiscal union, with a common foreign and defence policy, which would constitute the greatest surrender of Britain's national sovereignty since 1066.
He went on to say "Community law" would take precedence over our own courts and that ever more power would pass away from Parliament to the bureaucratic system centred in Brussels.
The author even accurately asserts that the increased role of Brussels in the lives of the British people would lead to a "popular feeling of alienation from Government".
But shockingly politicians were advised "not to exacerbate public concern by attributing unpopular measures" to the remote and unmanageable workings of the Community".
They were told to preserve the impression that the British Government was still calling the shots rather than an unelected body of foreign politicians - and that the ruse would last "for this century at least" - by which time Britain would be so completely chained to Brussels it would be impossible to leave.
Document FCO30/1048, which has now been declassified under the 30-year rule, still shocks and angers Brexiteers.
Annabelle Sanderson, a Brexit expert and former advisor to Nigel Farage said: "Despite all the claims from politicians of many parties that the EU was not about becoming a central state this 1971 document shows that is exactly what the plan was.
"Arch Remoaners from Labour, Lib Dems and the Tories need to check this out and ask themselves why they are MPs if they don't actually want Westminster to be in charge of this country.
"We voted for Brexit what needs to happen is a proper clean break from Brussels so we can once again become a sovereign nation with money being spent in this country on services we need and have Parliament and courts making and ruling on the laws."
' The writer and journalist Christopher Booker, one of the founders of the satirical magazine Private Eye, said: "Here was a civil servant advising that our politicians should connive in concealing what Heath was letting us in for, not least in hiding the extent to which Britain would no longer be a democratic country but one essentially governed by unelected and unaccountable officials.
"One way to create an illusion that this system was still democratic, this anonymous mandarin suggested, would be to give people the chance to vote for new representatives at European, regional and local levels.
"A few years later, we saw the creation of an elected European Parliament - as we see today a craze for introducing elected mayors, as meaningless local figureheads."
The pro-Europe Sir Edward Heath was leader of the Conservative Party from 1965 to 1975.
He died in 2005.
In 2015 he was named as part of Wiltshire Police's Operation Conifer investigation into historical child sex abuse.

The REAL Refugees: Western Europeans Flee From Islam And Set Up Colonies In Secure Hungary
It is no secret that Hungary has become one of the safest countries in the world. While Western Europe opened its borders and accelerated its Islamisation during the migrant crisis, Eastern Europe did the opposite.
Western Europe's governments actively try to cover-up migrant crimes but there's no denying reality: in a lot of countries it's a big problem and countries like Germany, Belgium and Sweden are even losing control over it.
What a lot of people wouldn't have dreamed of predicting for decades is now happening: An increasing number of people are not moving from Eastern Europe to Western Europe, but in the opposite direction.
The Dutch family Bastiaensen, who owned a vacation home in Hungary, realised that the city of Budapest was safer than their Dutch capital Amsterdam. The combination of Hungary's lower taxes and the fact that there are no Muslims made them decide to immigrate to the country.
The family says Hungary's prime minister is doing a great job: "Viktor Orbán puts Hungarians first and Hungary's excellent border controls make our fear of terror almost absent."
According to the family at least three hundred Dutch and Belgians have bought houses near the town of Csemö. "All our neighbours are Dutch and it's pleasant to have other Dutch people near us."
Several estate agents confirm the experience of the family. Dutch estate agent Robert Kemers says that at least a thousand Belgians now live in Hungary and that since the start of the migrant crisis the number of inquiries is surging. "After every terror attack we see a spike in the number of website visits" he says.
It's not just the Dutch and the Belgians, but also Germans and people from Scandinavia see Hungary as a safe haven within the European Union. "They come from Austria too" the estate agent adds. A Belgian estate agent says about it: "Two of my clients said that they were fleeing from refugees and that they needed a house in Hungary."
EIGHT IN TEN PEOPLE WHO CALL ME SAY THAT THEY WANT TO LEAVE GERMANY BECAUSE OF ITS MIGRANT POLICY
German estate agent Ottmar Heide tells somewhat the same story: Eight in ten people who call me say that they want to leave Germany because of its migrant policy.
With the continuation of Europe's migration crisis and the return of ISIS from Syria, it is to be expected that migration from Western Europe to Eastern Europe will continue.
With a little bit of drama the question could be asked if these people are the first 'refugees' who have fled from Western Europe's failed multicultural project to a safe haven in Eastern Europe.

Posted on Nov.20, 2017 in classification, transparency by Steven Aftergood
"After early promises to be the most transparent administration in history, the Obama administration turned out to be one of the most secretive," wrote Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan last year.
Speaking at Harvard's Shorenstein Center last month, former ACLU litigator Jameel Jaffer didn't go quite that far. He acknowledged that Obama had taken some small steps towards greater transparency, such as making White House visitor logs available and declassifying the Office of Legal Counsel memos on intelligence interrogation (the `torture memos').
But overall, Obama was a disappointment, said Jaffer, a respected figure who now directs the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University.
"Few people today (and certainly very few transparency advocates) believe that President Obama kept his promise," he said. See Government Secrecy in the Age of Information Overload, October 17, 2017.

France faces `very high' terrorism risk - interior minister ahead of anniversary of Paris attacks
As France prepares to mark the second anniversary of the November 2015 Paris attacks, Interior Minister Gerard Collomb has warned that the terrorist threat remains `very high,' with a number of `mall groups' planning attacks.
France has been on high alert since January 2015, when it was paralyzed by a series of Islamic State-linked terrorist attacks. The most horrific of these took place on November 13, 2015, when 130 people were killed hundreds of others injured in coordinated attacks in and around Paris.
"This was the first case of mass killing in France", Collomb told Le Journal du Dimanche (JDD) on Saturday. "We did not think back at the time that it was even possible in France. Now we are prepared."
Last month, Le Figaro reported that French fighters who joined IS in Syria and Iraq received welfare benefits even after joining. France's Criminal Brigade, which specializes in tracking down IS funding, uncovered fraudulent welfare payments to jihadists totaling over €2 million ($2.3 million) from Europe between 2012 and 2017. Around €500,000 came from France, the newspaper said.

This particular news-items seems to be surrounded by hypocrisy and lousy logic:
this politico guy was told there'd been complaints of inappropriate behaviour towards women and that therefore he was suspended until the case was fully investigated. He went away and killed himself.
Now get this, only he knew for sure how many offences he'd committed, the individual victim(s) certainly didn't.
And, knowing what would probably be exposed, he chose not to face it, regardless of harm to his family.
That, to me, seems the action of a guilty man, and of a selfish coward.
PS - notice one of his cronies said the matter should have been dealt with "behind closed doors". Effing pillock! That's how pervy politicos always got away with their crimes in the past!
Wales' First Minister Carwyn Jones has said he had no alternative but to sack Carl Sargeant following allegations about his conduct.
Mr Sargeant's body was found on Tuesday, four days after he was dismissed as communities minister and suspended from the Welsh Labour party.
It is understood he took his own life. Mr Jones said he had acted "by the book" over the matter.
He said he would try to provide answers which Mr Sargeant's family deserved.
Claims about inappropriate "touching or groping" were made to the first minister's office last week.
Following Friday's sacking, the Alyn and Deeside AM had vowed to clear his name but said he did not know the details of the allegations.
Mr Jones met Labour AMs on Thursday to explain how he handled conduct allegations against Mr Sargeant.
The inquest into Mr Sargeant's death will be opened and adjourned at 13:00 GMT on Monday, at the coroner's court in Ruthin, north Wales.
Former Welsh Government minister Leighton Andrews and Welsh Conservative leader Andrew RT Davies have called for an independent inquiry, which Mr Jones suggested could take place in future.
... Former public services minister Mr Andrews - who alleged "minor bullying" and "mind games" during his time in government - said during the last assembly term the atmosphere "was toxic".
He alleged "minor bullying, mind-games, power-games, favouritism, inconsistency of treatment to different ministers, deliberate personal undermining on occasion".
"The undermining was of ministers, deputy ministers and special advisers," Mr Andrews said in a statement issued on Thursday.
Andrews said the allegations should have been dealt with "behind closed doors"
The ex-Rhondda AM said he had raised one particular issue with Mr Jones, of which he had direct evidence, but claimed due process was not followed.
Mr Andrews was sacked by Mr Jones from the education brief in 2013 before returning to the front benches as public services minister in 2014.

Arab `mafia' infiltrates German police, state services - German police union official
Published time: 8 Nov, 2017 20:32 | Edited time: 9 Nov, 2017 07:04
Powerful Arab criminal clans are actively trying to plant their members into Berlin's police and other state services, a local German Police Union head has claimed. He went on to say the mafia gangs are seeking to control police actions.
Large criminal networks of migrant descent are seeking to provide some of their members access to the inner workings of state services, Bodo Pfalzgraf, the head of the Berlin branch of the German Police Union, told the German broadcaster ZDF on Wednesday. "The truth should be revealed," he said.
"There are clear indications that big Arab clans have a [infiltration] strategy and try to keep certain family members away from criminal activities so that they could later infiltrate state services," Pfalzgraf explained as he appeared on ZDF's `Morgen Magazin' program. The migrant mafia has "a vital interest in first-hand knowledge of how the state works, how the police operate and when searches [and raids] are conducted," he said.
These developments require special attention from the German authorities, he said, adding that allegations against police should be investigated not by the police itself but by a special task force instead. At the same time, he warned against racial or other forms of profiling by saying that no one should be `denied access to the state services just because of their name.'
Pfalzgraf also called for stricter admissions criteria for police enrolments. He said such criteria have not been amended for a long while and are currently failing to meet contemporary realities.
Berlin's police were, however, quick to dispute the allegations concerning potential infiltration by migrant mafia clans. "These claims are definitely false," Berlin police chief, Klaus Kandt, said at a special meeting of Berlin's parliament on Wednesday.
His words were echoed by the Deputy Head of the Berlin Police Department, Margarete Koppers, who said during the same session that any infiltration of police by criminal Arab clans is `ruled out.' She went on to say that no members of such clans are studying in any police educational facilities.
The accusations and counter-statements come amid a high profile scandal involving a law student who undertook an internship at one of the German capital's police departments. The student at the Berlin School of Economics and Law, who is of Arab descent, was arrested after she took photos of confidential police documents and sent them to an unknown contact via the WhatsApp messenger service.

According to the local BZ daily, the 22-year-old female student thus copied photos of wanted members of a suspected Arab criminal clan. The student reportedly volunteered for an internship in this particular police department, the daily added. The incident took place in late October but surfaced in the German media only this week.
Berlin's Interior Minister Andreas Geisel has meanwhile warned against the rise of xenophobia and prejudice against police officers of migrant descent. "That is something I would not tolerate," he said in response to a growing number of complaints within the German police against immigrant recruits.
A lecturer at the Berlin Police Academy was heard complaining in a recently-leaked recording about the poor language skills, lack of respect, and disloyalty of ethnic Turks and Arabs who study at the facility.
The first leak was then followed by a series of new accusations that came in the form of anonymous letters allegedly sent by other members of the German police community. One such letter published by the Tagesspiegel daily said: "The police ranks are open to criminal clans." Allegedly written by a long serving member of Berlin's criminal investigation department, the document said that recruits from these big clans are allowed to join the ranks of the police despite having criminal records.

A disturbing video has been released showing a man firing six shots into the air while sitting inside a car in Germany. The incident happened in broad daylight at a wedding ceremony in Duisburg, in North Rhine-Westphalia.
A local resident who filmed the incident told the Bild tabloid that "the party blocked the entire street," adding that "the gunman even pointed his gun at a motorist in the oncoming traffic."
"There were Turkish flags on display," the witness said. Bild draws the obvious conclusion that this must have been a Turkish wedding.
By the time law enforcement officers arrived, the party was already over.

A similar incident took place late last month at a wedding ceremony in Bonn, the newspaper reported. There too, a man fired several shots into the air from a moving car. A case was opened against him for violating German gun-control laws.

A newly built children's playground in Berlin has caused quite a mixed reaction. With one of its playhouses featuring a dome crowned with a crescent moon, some say it represents a mosque, while others claim it's simply an "oriental castle".
The park is located in Berlin's municipality of Neukölln, which is known for its high percentage of residents with immigrant backgrounds.
The playground was part of a larger project for which the authorities allocated €220000.
However, some locals were surprised to see what looked like a mini version of a mosque, complete with a crescent moon and four minarets peeking over the construction fence. Arguing there might be a religious statement behind it, some say that taxpayer money should not be spent on funding such projects.

Singapore now world's most powerful passport.
Inhabitants of the tiny city state of Singapore have the most powerful passports in the world, it has been revealed.
But the usefulness of a US passport has fallen slightly since President Donald Trump took office, with Turkey and the Central African Republic becoming the most recent countries to revoke visa-free entry for holders.
A new ranking of world passports by website Passport Index found that citizens of Singapore can travel to the highest number of countries visa-free.
It took the top spot after Paraguay removed restrictions which had been in place for Singaporeans.
The 3.4m holders of Singaporean passports can now travel to 159 countries without a visa - or by obtaining a visa on arrival.
Germany is in second place, with citizens able to visit 158 countries without obtaining a visa first, while Sweden and South Korea are tied in third place.
The UK is tied in fourth place along with Denmark, Finland, Italy, France, Spain, Norway, and Japan.
Brits can travel to 156 countries visa-free. The US is in 6th position along with Canada, Ireland and Malaysia.
Passport Index ranks passports in real time, based on the cross-border access a holder has.
It was developed by a Canada-based global consultancy firm called Arton Capita.
Philippe May, managing director of Arton Capital's Singapore office, said: "For the first time ever, an Asian country has the most powerful passport in the world. "It is a testament of Singapore's inclusive diplomatic relations and effective foreign policy."
The least powerful passport continues to be Afghanistan, with just 22 countries allowing visa-free access to its residents.
That's followed by Iraq with 26, and Syria with 29.

Scandal of our overweight children: One in four 11-year-olds are classed as `obese'
Controversial school tests show 25pc of all Year 6 kids in Greater Manchester are classed as overweight
More than a quarter of ten and eleven-year-olds in Greater Manchester are obese, shocking statistics have revealed.
Latest figures show more youngsters in this region are overweight than elsewhere in the country - one in four Year 6 pupils here compared to a national average of one in five.Statistics from the Government's National Child Measurement Programme showed 25.4 per cent of children at that stage were obese in 2016 -17, up from 25.1 percent in 2015-16.
Reception children were also getting bigger with statistics showing 11.7 per cent of five year olds were obese compared to 11.4 per cent in 2015/16.
The height and weight of more than one million children in England are now recorded each year to check how many youngsters in reception and year 6 are underweight, a healthy weight, overweight or obese.
But some parents have slammed the programme saying the results are too simplistic and letters they received were `disgusting.'
Steve Morton, from Public Health England North West, said: "These latest figures should be a wake-up call - our children need every opportunity for a healthy life and our NHS is under increasing demand. Childhood obesity is the challenge of a generation and more joined-up local action is needed if we are serious about giving our children the future they deserve.
"A healthy weight in childhood lays the foundations for decades of healthy life as an adult. This data underlines how important it is for families to talk about health and weight as part of everyday life.
"Each year, more children leave primary school overweight or obese and our most deprived areas are the worst affected. It's never too soon to make a change and there is lots of support from councils and Change4Life to help."
Earlier this year Katy Mee was sent the letter after son Charlie was checked as part of the programme.
It stated that at 149cm and weighing 44.6kg - just over seven stone - Charlie is `overweight' and could possibly face a range of health problems in the future.
The letters are sent to parents and the results not shared with school staff or the pupils themselves.
Katy, 30, from Horwich, said: "We honestly thought it was laughable. It states in the letter that he could potentially suffer long term health complications due to him being overweight, it's disgusting."
Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Bolton Council, which sent out the letter, have since apologised for any offence caused.
Sale mum-of-three Rebecca Lowe says she's totally against the programme, and says it fails to take into account a number of factors.
The 42-year-old told the M.E.N: "They just take two figures and make an assumption on the health of your child.
"They don't take into account if they were premature, if they were breastfed, if they're broad, or a lot of sport and have muscle.
"We received a letter for my daughter a few years ago when she was in reception and I was furious.
"It was worded poorly, and basically told me my child was very over weight and at risk of health problems so I should speak to a nurse.
"My daughter was born in September, she was six weeks premature so for the first year we were trying to get her to put on weight and introducing her to new foods.
"She is a broad child, she gets it from her dad's side. But she eats healthy, and is very active.
"She plays a lot of football and had big strong muscly legs."
Do you agree with children's weight and height being recorded by the Government?
Rebecca says that her daughter could have easily got her hands on the letter, as it had her name on it too when it was posted through the door.
"Luckily we got to it first, but she would've been able to read it had her name on it.
"Kids rarely get post so they get excited when they see something for them - imagine if she'd read it! It's the last thing a young girl should see, telling them their overweight."
Rebecca said although she doesn't doubt the stats, she doesn't believe they are accurate.
"It's just too narrow a measurement," she added.
"Not enough factors are taken into account."

Saudi preacher says women are to blame for rape because they are `the cause of harassment and adultery'
Ahmed Bin Saad Al Qarni delivered his hate-filled sermon over Twitter
He said a woman leaving her house with perfume or make up is `an adulteress'
The cleric claimed `women instigate men to rape and assault them'
By Darren Boyle for MailOnline | PUBLISHED: 15:34, 19 October 2017 | UPDATED: 20:51, 19 October 2017
A hard-line Saudi preacher has claimed women are to blame for their own rape s and are the `cause of harassment and adultery.
Ahmed Bin Saad Al Qarni delivered his abhorrent sermon on Twitter where he claimed `women instigate men to rape and assault them.
In one video he posted online, Al Qarni claimed "look at the woman in this video, she made the men go mad. Don't blame men."
A controversial Saudi cleric has claimed women are to blame for rape and are committing adultery if they leave their homes while wearing perfume or even make up
According to StepFeed.com, the cleric said: "If he rapes her, she'll come home crying over her dignity. I swear to God, women are the cause of harassment and adultery. Look at the woman in this video, she's the one who stopped the man driving the vehicle, and she's the one who got into the car with him."
He continued: "A woman who leaves her house wearing make-up and perfume is an adulteress. A good woman who's wearing a kitchen apron will never leave her house looking like that. Don't blame men."
This controversy comes days after Saudi officials cancelled a fundraising concert for children with cancer by an Egyptian female singer called Sherine, who is know for her rags-to-riches story.
The General Entertainment Authority said the concert was cancelled because the event's organizer failed to apply for a license to hold such an event.
However, conservatives in Saudi Arabia had launched a Twitter campaign against the concert.
The kingdom has loosened the reins on fun after a two-decade-long ban on concerts, but so far only for male singers.
Under the kingdom's strict dress code, women must wear long, loose robes in public. Most cover their hair and face too.
King Salman last month announced that women would be permitted to drive in the kingdom.
The lifting of the driving ban has been widely credited to 32-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who styles himself as a moderniser in the conservative kingdom, where more than half the population is aged under 25.
Prince Mohammed has cracked down on dissent while also showing a rare willingness to tackle entrenched Saudi taboos such as promoting more women in the workforce.
The reform is in line with the kingdom's Vision 2030 programme that seeks to elevate women to nearly one-third of the workforce, up from about 22 per cent now.
Authorities have highlighted the economic benefits of the reform as the kingdom reels from a protracted oil slump; Saudi families would no longer need foreign chauffeurs, often a major source of financial strain.

"Failed integration: In next 10-20 years, France will be new Lebanon"
Yup, he's right. As we've already discussed, Muslims are noticeably different to other immigrants in that most are incapable of becoming "good citizens" in the West, due to their inbred (genetically diseased) stupidity, [see "morons" reference].
That's coupled with social upbringings which actually foster even more stupid violence: rape - including pedo-rape - and murder (i.e. - female subjection to male privilege; parental (male) violence, along with mindless rote learning etc.).
N.b. - we're talking average IQs here, individuals can be exceptional. I.e. while working in Arabia some fellow contractors were good friends and were intelligent and constructive. They were technical and scientific officers of the PLO (working in exile).
Failed integration: In next 10-20 years, France will be new Lebanon - writer
In just a few years, Islamic suburbs of Paris will obey their own set of rules, they will have their own laws, their own principles, maybe even their own police. It is already the case, Alexandre Mendel, author of the book `Partition' told RT.
Europe has been facing a large number of migrants coming from the war-torn countries in Africa and the Middle East. Today many are concerned about the Islamization of Europe and the failure of Muslims assimilating into their new countries.
RT met with a writer Alexandre Mendel, whose new book `Partition' is devoted to the Muslims' failure to integrate in France, and discussed the current situation in that country.
RT: Please start by describing for our readers your book.
fic ' Mendel: My last book, 'Jihadist France,' was only about the French terrorists. `Partition' is mainly about Islamization of France, about what's going on in France, in schools, hospitals, at work, in sports clubs, etc. I am not talking this time about terrorism itself, but about the way France decided whether the French government - like it or not - collaborated and accepted some kind of arrangements with Islam. This is the main topic of the book.
There are at least two things that are important about the Islamization. The first one is that you cannot be always blind with this problem. For 20-30 years we let down our rules, our principals, our republican ideals; we negotiated with Islamists. We are totally blind to this kind of small signals that some parts of France were becoming Islamized. That can explain the terrorism today in France. If we didn't accept these little arrangements with radical Islam, we probably wouldn't have had so many attacks in France. That is why it is so important today not to be blind anymore in France and to tell the truth.
My book is made of many, many reports in France. It is not a theoretical book - it is a book written by a reporter. We went there, we went to the schools, to the hospitals, to the cities where people and police never set foot to see the reality and just to talk about the reality. A lot of French people, especially a lot of French journalists and French politicians never go there. It is very important today to be a reporter in these areas where nobody sets foot anymore. This is a testimony of our modern time.
RT: What should be done to integrate people into society? Is it only a Muslim thing, or other groups, as well?
AM: In my book, I say that there is no solution, because it is too late; there won't be any solution. You can't send them back to their country - they are French - the French cannot send them back. What France will become in the next 10 or 20 years will be a kind of new Lebanon in some places in France.
For example, take some suburbs in Paris: they will have their own set of rules, they will have their own laws, their own principals, maybe even their own police. It is already the case. The fact that in France right now in many places France has no control in these areas. We accepted it already and we won't fight back to get these suburbs back to France. It is already done - we already lost the war against them.
So the rich people in France will be in the fancy neighborhoods of Paris, far from the problems, and then the poor people will have to deal with Islamism on a daily base. This is the way we accepted that already.
RT: Why did integration failed in France, do you think?
AM: Integration has failed in France, but not only France - in many other countries, because we buried our republican principal to actually mimic what exists in Great Britain, in Canada, or in the US; accept that you could be French, get French citizenship without even speaking French, without even going to the Republican French School, get French citizenship, without living like the French. France is not a new country of immigration - it has a very long story of immigration. People in the 1920s came to France from all over Europe - from Poland, from Russia, from Armenia, Italy, and there was no problem to integrate them, not problem at all ...

Fukushima survivor tells UN about Japan's `human rights abuses'
A survivor of the Fukushima nuclear disaster has submitted evidence to United Nations Human Rights Council, testifying that she was `forced' to return home to a contaminated area after the government ended financial subsidies for voluntary evacuees.
On Thursday, Mitsuko Sonoda submitted evidence of the "ongoing human rights abuses of Fukushima victims" to the UNHRC, a source with the Greenpeace Japan in Geneva told Xinhua news agency.
Sonoda, who voluntarily fled the contamination zone in wake of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster in March 2011, believes she had no other choice and was forced to move back to her village after the government revoked subsidies for those who voluntarily left the area.
Greenpeace confirmed the submission of evidence to the UN body, saying Sonoda left the Fukushima prefecture six years ago with her husband in order to protect their 10-year-old son.
"I want to tell the world we haven't had our human rights respected since the disaster. I don't want this to happen to anyone else in any other countries," said Sonoda, according to Greenpeace which had a live broadcast outside the UN headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.
"I know so many mothers who have been suffering and struggling as a result of the nuclear disaster because the Japanese government and [Tokyo Electric Power Company] TEPCO won't admit to their responsibilities," she added just before submitting her evidence.
The 2011 disaster occurred when three of the Fukushima plant's reactors experienced fuel meltdowns as a result of an earthquake and consequent tsunami. The spewing radiation forced 160,000 people to flee their homes.
Over 12,000 households (around 27,000 people) have left surrounding areas that were not covered by the government's mandatory evacuation orders. Unlike people who were forced to relocate under evacuation mandate, voluntary evacuees only received a fraction of the payment that the government offered in compensation to mandatory evacuees.

"Merkel agrees to limit number of refugees entering Germany"
Nope - this is clearly propaganda. First off, Germany has an ageing population and needs young (and stupid) replacement workers.
Secondly, Germany has a hidden history of agitating and secretly supporting Islamic fundamentalist terrorists - from way back.
So it's hard to resist the speculation that Merkel has a secret agenda of European domination, aided by the chaos effected by massive slaughters inflicted by rabid jihadis.
Published time: 9 Oct, 2017 10:37 | Edited time: 9 Oct, 2017 11
Merkel agrees to limit number of refugees entering Germany After hours of discussion, Angela Merkel's CDU and its Bavarian CSU party have made a breakthrough in the fight over the refugee ceiling issue, agreeing to cap Germany's intake of asylum seekers at 200,000 a year.
"We want to achieve a total number of people taken in for humanitarian reasons (refugees and asylum seekers, those entitled to subsidiary protection, family members, relocation and resettlement minus deportations and voluntary departures of future refugees) that does not exceed 200,000 people a year," the agreement stated, according to Reuters.
This would relate to the humanitarian inflow, in other words asylum seekers and refugees; migrant workers would not be affected by the scheme. In exceptional circumstances, that number could be increased or lowered by the Bundestag, Der Spiegel reported, citing a draft paper.
Since 2015, when the German Chancellor announced her decision to let in hundreds of thousands of refugees, around 1 million asylum-seekers have arrived in Germany, putting a strain on its social welfare system and sparking a rise in anti-migrant sentiment, as well as opening deep rifts within German society.
Merkel is now expected to start coalition talks next week.
With 33 percent of the votes, her CDU/CSU alliance won a plurality in the German parliamentary elections late last month. However, for both the CDU/CSU and their closest rival, the Social Democratic Party (SPD), which gained 20.5 percent of the vote, the results were the worst in over 60 years. Meanwhile, the anti-immigrant AfD - which secured 12.6 percent of the vote - came in third and will enter the Bundestag for the first time.
READ MORE: Merkel `to blame for AfD existence' and will be challenged by new reality - analysts to RT
Public support for the AfD grew amid mounting anti-refugee sentiment following Merkel's open-door policy.
"The growing Islamization of Germany poses an urgent challenge for its public and state order; cultural identity and internal peace," AfD co-founder Alexander Gauland said during a press conference held less than a week before the German parliamentary elections.
Throughout its election campaign, the AfD was accused of racism, Nazism, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism.
Ahead of the federal election, Angela Merkel once again defended her open-door policy by denying she made any mistakes over the course of the refugee crisis.
"I'd make all the important decisions of 2015 the same way again," Merkel told the German Die Welt in late August, adding that she has no regrets about her refugee stance.
"I made my decision based on what I thought was right from a political and humanitarian standpoint," she said, and described the 2015 refugee crisis as one of "extraordinary situations" that just "happen every once in a while in a country's history."
Germany's geographic location together with the Dublin agreement (regulating asylum procedures in the EU) has left most refugees stranded in the EU's coastal states, such as Greece and Italy. Despite this, Germany has been receiving thousands of asylum-seekers annually. As the migrant influx from the Middle East and North Africa gained momentum, the German chancellor announced a "humanitarian move," opening Germany's borders to migrants in August 2015.
The mass influx of refugees had a major impact on Germany's national security situation. In August 2016, the head of the Bavarian department of the Domestic Intelligence Agency (BfV), Manfred Hauser warned that `hit squads' linked to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) might have infiltrated Germany posing as refugees.
The deadliest incident occurred on December 19 2016, when a rejected asylum-seeker plowed a truck into a Berlin Christmas market, leaving 12 people dead and dozens injured. The assailant, a Tunisian man named Anis Amri who had pledged allegiance to IS, had previously been on the radar of the police. Amri managed to flee the scene and reach Italy, where he was gunned down by police.

Muslims in China say they are being told to hand over Qurans or face `harsh punishments'
`Every single ethnic Uyghur must hand in any Islam-related items,' claims exile group
Chinese authorities are ordering Muslims in the country to hand over their prayer mats and copies of the Quran or else face punishment, it has been reported.
Officials in Xinjiang province have warned members of the Uyghur ethnic minority they must surrender religious items on pain of "harsh punishments", according to an exile leader.
"We received a notification saying that every single ethnic Uyghur must hand in any Islam-related items from their own home, including Qurans, prayers and anything else bearing the symbols of religion," Dilxat Raxit, of the exile World Uyghur Congress, told Radio Free Asia (RFA), which is operated by the US government.
The directive also applies to ethnic Kazakh and Kyrgyz Muslims, RFA said. It was reportedly announced via the WeChat social network.
In its update on China in 2016 and 2017, Amnesty International said the communist Beijing government "continued to violate the right to freedom of religion, and crack down on all unauthorised religious gatherings" in the region, and to detain Uyghur writers.
Tension between Uighurs and Han Chinese boiled over in 2009, leading to violence that left scores dead.
Hundreds of people have died in the protracted conflict between separatists and the Chinese government in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, its full name, which sits on China's far north-western border.
Beijing has blamed the problems on Islamist militants, though rights organisations say the violence is in reaction to repressive Chinese policy. Rebels claim the region has been illegally occupied since 1949.
Peaceful protests have taken place alongside bombings and other violent attacks on Chinese security forces and institutions.

1,400 YEARS OF IN-BREEDING
Thanks for the link Choong,
Had a look, and the article's been copied / posted several places on the Web. Back in 2011 a UK geneticist (Nobel winner Prof S Jones) explained that Muslim in-breeding was costing the UK lots of money / man-power and unneccessary work due to the amount of retarded and genetically diseased children being born in Bradford (a northern UK town heavily occupied by Pakistani Muslims, mostly cousin marrying).
As soon as he published that scientific opinion, pro-Muslim politicos and even some media began attacking him as `Islamophobic' and `pro-Nazi'. Now the same seems to be happening with this article - some hypocrite politicos looking to curry favor with the Islamic vote are criticizing it on "religious grounds" when it is purely a matter of hard science.
[BTW - I was an Instructor in Saudi Arabia for a while and have to agree with the assessment of those US trainers - see below]
PS - I note that China bans cousin-marriage, and I recall China has the highest world IQ
"1400 Years of In-Breeding" [link to original article]
We asked several Muslims in Saudi Arabia why they marry their first cousins. All of them told us it's to keep the wealth within the family and that the Prophet allows them to do this. There is one town in Saudi Arabia where there are only TWO last names listed for all its citizens.
This came from a Lockheed employee who has had 3 assignments to Saudi Arabia. Worth the read!
"During the pilot transition program with the KV-107 and C-130 with Lockheed, we found that most Saudi pilot trainees had very limited night vision, even on the brightest of moonlit nights. Their training retention rate was minimal, including maintenance personnel.
Some had dim memories and had to be constantly reminded of things that were told to them the day before. An American, British or any other western instructor is burned out pretty quick. It actually took Muslim C-130 pilots years before they could fly in the dark safely and then would be reluctant to leave the lights of a city. Ask any Marine, Air Force or Army guy who has been trying to train Iraqis, and especially Afghans."
Islam is not only a religion; it's a way of life all the way around. Yet another set of revealing facts about Muslim beliefs and traditions and ways of life: 1400 years of inbreeding. I found this to be interesting. Didn't know whether to believe it or not. To research I went to Wikipedia, "Cousin Marriage", and far down in the article "Genetics" it seems there is a lot of truth here. "A huge Muslim problem: Inbreeding."
Nikolai Sennels is a Danish psychologist who has done extensive research into a little-known problem in the Muslim world: the disastrous results of Muslim inbreeding brought about by the marriage of first cousins.
This practice, which has been prohibited in the Judeo-Christian tradition since the days of Moses, was sanctioned by Muhammad and has been going on now for 50 generations (1,400 years) in the Muslim world. This practice of inbreeding will never go away in the Muslim world, since Muhammad is the ultimate example and authority on all matters, including marriage.
The massive inbreeding in Muslim culture may well have done virtually irreversible damage to the Muslim gene pool, including extensive damage to its intelligence, sanity, and health. According to Sennels, close to half of all Muslims in the world are inbred. In Pakistan, the numbers approach 70%. Even in England, more than half of Pakistani immigrants are married to their first cousins, and in Denmark the number of inbred Pakistani immigrants is around 40%. The numbers are equally devastating in other important Muslim countries: 67% in Saudi Arabia, 64% in Jordan, and Kuwait, 63% in Sudan, 60% inIraq, and 54% in the United Arab Emirates and Qatar.
According to the BBC, this Pakistani, Muslim-inspired inbreeding is thought to explain the probability that a British Pakistani family is more than 13 times as likely to have children with recessive genetic disorders. While Pakistanis are responsible for three percent of the births in the UK, they account for 33% of children with genetic birth defects.
The risks of what are called autosomal recessive disorders such as cystic fibrosis, spinal muscular atrophy is 18 times higher, and the risk of death due to malformations is 10 times higher. Other negative consequences of inbreeding include a 100 percent increase in the risk of stillbirths and a 50% increase in the possibility that a child will die during labor.
Lowered intellectual capacity is another devastating consequence of Muslim marriage patterns. According to Sennels, research shows that children of consanguineous marriages lose 10-16 points off their IQ and that social abilities develop much slower in inbred babies. The risk of having an IQ lower than 70, the official demarcation for being classified as "retarded", increases by an astonishing 400 percent among children of cousin marriages. (Similar effects were seen in the Paranoiac dynasties in ancient Egypt and in the British royal family, where inbreeding was the norm for a significant period of time.)
In Denmark, non-Western immigrants are more than 300 percent more likely to fail the intelligence test required for entrance into the Danish Army. Sennels says, "The ability to enjoy and produce knowledge and abstract thinking is simply lower in the Islamic world." He points out that the Arab world translates just 330 books every year, about 20% of what Greece alone does.
In the last 1,200 years of Islam, just 100,000 books have been translated into Arabic, about what Spain does in a single year. Seven out of 10 Turks have never even read a book. Sennels points out the difficulties this creates for Muslims seeking to succeed in the West. "A lower IQ, together with a religion that denounces critical thinking, surely makes it harder for many Muslims to have success in our high-tech knowledge societies." Only nine Muslims have ever won the Nobel Prize, and five of those were for the "Peace Prize". According to Nature magazine, Muslim countries produce just 10 percent of the world average when it comes to scientific research measured by articles per million inhabitants.
In Denmark, Sennels' native country, Muslim children are grossly over represented among children with special needs. One-third of the budget for Danish schools is consumed by special education, and anywhere from 51% to 70% of retarded children with physical handicaps in Copenhagen have an immigrant background. Learning ability is severely affected as well. Studies indicated that 64% of schoolchildren with Arabic parents are still illiterate after 10 years in the Danish school system. The immigrant dropout rate in Danish high schools is twice that of the native-born.
Mental illness is also a product. The closer the blood relative, the higher the risk of schizophrenic illness. The increased risk of insanity may explain why more than 40% of patients in Denmark's biggest ward for clinically insane criminals have an immigrant background.
The U.S. is not immune. According to Sennels, "One study based on 300,000 Americans shows that the majority of Muslims in the USA have a lower income, are less educated, and have worse jobs than the population as a whole."
Sennels concludes: There is no doubt that the wide spread tradition of first cousin marriages among Muslims has harmed the gene pool among Muslims. Because Muslims' religious beliefs prohibit marrying non-Muslims and thus prevents them from adding fresh genetic material to their population, the genetic damage done to their gene pool since their prophet allowed first cousin marriages 1,400 years ago is most likely massive. This has produced overwhelming direct and indirect human and societal consequences.
Bottom line: Islam is not simply a benign and morally equivalent alternative to the Judeo-Christian tradition. As Sennels points out, the first and biggest victims of Islam are Muslims. Simple Judeo-Christian compassion for Muslims and a common-sense desire to protect Western civilization from the ravages of Islam dictate a vigorous opposition to the spread of this dark and dangerous religion.
These stark realities must be taken into account when we establish public polices dealing with immigration from Muslim countries and the building of mosques in the U.S.
Let us hope the civilized West and the North Americans wake up before a blind naivete about the reality of Islam destroys what remains of our Judeo-Christian culture and our domestic tranquility.
For those who would like to read more on this subject, google Nikolai Sennels. There are other academics who have done similar research and have arrived at similar conclusions.

Yep, can sympathize with her (probable) final feelings. That is, I've been in the situation of being possibly stalked by wild (or feral) predators on several occasions, mostly when hiking (or on military exercises) again mostly alone or, rather more rarely, when leading small groups.
Once in northern Kenya I was rather isolated, in the jungle with only two or three pals and we detected something close to us, hidden by dense and thick bushes and trees. Whatever it was was large, aware of us and circling - getting closer. A small problem was that my rifle (a 7.62 SLR) was loaded with the only live rounds issued for this exercise, which meant that I had to face the "threat" at all times. Luckily we were coming close to an open area (we could see bright sunlight off to our right), and so I told the lads to move onto that small grassy meadow, surrounded by thick jungle. Whatever had been circling us didn't feel like following me into the open so we were temporarily off the hook. We gave it some minutes and went back in - and the stalker had gotten bored and departed.
In winter-time Italy, I was alone (w/my dog) above the snow line on Monte Semprevisa when I looked upwards (climbing a steep scree slope) and saw a wolf looking down at me from the rim a few yards above. My dog, although a `hunting dog' was, like all dogs, more concerned with immediate sights and smells so I had to hiss an alarm to him before he realized the wolf was there.
Again in that part of Italy I once descended a mountain flank and found myself on the outskirts of a small town: at the town rubbish dump - a huge hill of smelly garbage. Almost immediately I was surrounded by a pack of snarling feral dogs, clearly intent on attack. Picking up rocks and threatening to throw kept them at bay for a while, and my continual walking eventually got me out of their sphere of influence. Apparently elderly folk, and small children, have fallen victim to feral dogs in Italy.
And an `accident' in Kenya almost had a bloody result, when I got myself stuck in the middle of a troop of wild baboons. However the baboons, although somewhat surprised, were more tolerant than expected so we parted on good terms.
[ Not quite the same area, and I'd put myself in the situation anyway: swimming in the deep Atlantic about 50 - 100 miles off the coast of Spain, was called in to the Navy ship by shouts of "Shark Attack". ]

THESSALONIKI, Greece (AP) - A missing British tourist may have been mauled to death and devoured by wild animals while hiking between archaeological sites in Greece, authorities said Tuesday after a woman's gnawed body was discovered in a remote hilly area.
Police say the human remains were found Saturday near the village of Petrota, 180 miles east of the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki. Near them, authorities found a passport for Celia Lois Hollingworth, 63, whom the British embassy in Athens had reported missing in the area Friday.
"We believe that the body belongs to the missing woman but can't say so for sure until the remains have been identified," a police official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The official was not authorized to discuss the case.
Coroner Nikos Kifnidis said the cause of death is still unclear as parts of the woman's body are missing. An autopsy will be performed Wednesday. Kifnidis told the AP that the skeletal remains he saw had been stripped of their flesh.
"Evidence is still being gathered," he said. "The remains I saw were just bones, there was no soft tissue. - A first estimate would be that she was devoured by animals."
But the precise causes of the woman's death were unclear.
"We are examining all possibilities - either an attack by wild or domesticated animals or a criminal act," police spokeswoman Ioanna Rotziokou said. "We can certainly say it (the body) was a shocking sight, but we don't know exactly how it got into that state."
The British newspaper the Daily Mail reports that Hollingworth made a frantic phone call to her family Friday, saying she had been wounded by a pack of animals.
Hikers in the Greek countryside often face fierce shepherd dogs, and strays near inhabited areas can also be aggressive. Wolves roam remote parts of the country and have been reported in the Petrota area.
Police said Hollingworth, a retired Oxford professor, was reported missing by her brother in England. Police there then notified the embassy in Athens.
Police said she had taken a taxi from the village of Maroneia, where she had been staying in a guesthouse, to an ancient beach site called Mesimvria, about a 12-mile drive. She was reportedly sighted later in the day on paths between the two sites. The remains were found in the hills further inland, toward Petrota.
Britain's Foreign Office was providing consular assistance to her family. ---

Murderous Morons (again)
This, again, shows Western ideas of "mercy" / "leniency" / redemption" are in dangerous conflict with public safety, especially the safety of women and children.
Most of these (adult male) fake `refugees' or `migrants' are inbred morons with deep and violent anti-female prejudices (badly needed by such male morons, for their "male superiority" claims).
Which means they'll NEVER be safe around women or children. And because their cultures are usually of "rape and murder" (even pedophile / homosexual rape and murder) - that means ALL women and children, not just their own, are in danger.
Like all murderous (and pedophile) morons, they're only safe in life imprisonment - i.e. if it's ensured they die in jail.

Syrian refugee jailed for 10 years in Estonia after setting wife on fire
A court in Estonia has sentenced a Syrian refugee to 10 years imprisonment for setting fire to his wife in front of their young daughter, as well as subjecting her to months of abuse.
© AFPRefugee who threw kids out of window because wife wanted 'Western freedom' goes on trial in Germany
On Friday, Judge Merle Parts pronounced her sentence on 20-year-old Kovan Mohammad at the Harju County Court. Mohammed, who arrived in Estonia with his family from Greece last year, had been charged with assault causing severe bodily harm, as well as physically abusing his 22-year-old wife throughout their relationship.
On March 7, wanting to teach his wife a `lesson', Mohammed used gasoline to set her alight in front of their young daughter at their apartment in the Lasnamäe district of Tallinn, local media reports. After calling an ambulance herself, the wife had to spend five months in hospital and go through six operations, as well as spending two months in a coma. Nearly 70 percent of her body was covered in burns.
Mohammed pleaded guilty to putting his wife through physical abuse, including hitting her with a wooden slat, but claimed the incident on March 7 was an accident. However, the court heard he took the time to go out and buy gasoline and also watched videos of burnings over the internet, as well as searching for the best ways to punish a woman. He was found guilty of both charges, but his lawyer Alar Neiland says he intends to appeal.
Mohammed's wife, who was released from hospital in August, has now moved into a new apartment with their child.

"I was just doing my job": Soviet officer who averted nuclear war dies at age 77
A Soviet officer who prevented a nuclear crisis between the US and the USSR and possible World War III in the 1980s has quietly passed away. He was 77. In 2010 RT spoke to Stanislav Petrov, who never considered himself a hero. We look at the life of the man who saved the world.
A decision that Soviet lieutenant colonel Stanislav Petrov once took went down in history as one that stopped the Cold War from turning into nuclear Armageddon, largely thanks to Karl Schumacher, a political activist from Germany who helped the news of his heroism first reach a western audience nearly two decades ago.
On September 7, Schumacher, who kept in touch with Petrov in the intervening years, phoned him to wish him a happy birthday, but instead learned from Petrov's son, Dmitry, that the retired officer had died on May 19 in his home in a small town near Moscow.
On September 26, 1983, Stanislav Petrov was on duty in charge of an early warning radar system in a bunker near Moscow, when just past midnight he saw the radar screen showing a single missile inbound from the United States and headed toward the Soviet Union.
"When I first saw the alert message, I got up from my chair. All my subordinates were confused, so I started shouting orders at them to avoid panic. I knew my decision would have a lot of consequences," Petrov recalled of that fateful night in an interview with RT in 2010.
"The siren went off for a second time. Giant blood-red letters appeared on our main screen, saying START. It said that four more missiles had been launched," he said. From the moment the warheads had taken off, there was only half an hour for the Kremlin to decide on whether to push the red button in retaliation and just 15 minutes for Petrov to determine whether the threat was real and report to his commanders.
"My cozy armchair felt like a red-hot frying pan and my legs went limp. I felt like I couldn't even stand up. That's how nervous I was when I was taking this decision," he told RT.
Taught that in case of a real attack the US would have gone on an all-out offensive, Petrov told his bosses the alarm must have been caused by a system malfunction.
"I'll admit it, I was scared. I knew the level of responsibility at my fingertips," he said.
It was later revealed that what the Soviet satellites took for missiles launch was sunlight reflected from clouds. Petrov's action, however, received no praise, and he was scolded for not filling in a service journal. His superiors were blamed for the system's flaws. "My superiors were getting the blame and they did not want to recognize that anyone did any good, but instead chose to spread the blame."
For over 10 years, the incident was kept secret as highly classified. Even Petrov's wife, Raisa, who died in 1997, didn't know anything of the role her husband played in averting nuclear war.
That was until 1998, when Petrov's superintendent, Colonel General Yury Votintsev, spoke out and a report about the officer's quiet deed appeared in the German tabloid Bild.
"After reading this report, I was as if struck by thunder," Karl Schumacher wrote in his blog.
"I could not get rid of the idea that I had to do something for the man who prevented an atomic war and thus saved the world," says Schumacher, for whom "nuclear threat was so real for decades."
Schumacher flew to Russia to find the man who saved the world, and found him living in a flat in Fryazino, northeast of Moscow. Schumacher invited Petrov to the German town of Oberhausen, so that locals would find out about the episode of when the world was teetering on the edge of nuclear catastrophe.
Stanislav Petrov, former Soviet lieutenant colonel Soviet officer who `saved the world from WWIII' gets Dresden Peace Prize
During his stay in Germany, Petrov appeared on local TV and gave interviews to several daily newspapers. Global recognition followed that trip, with major awards presented to him. In 2006, the Association of World Citizens handed him an award, which reads: `To the man who averted nuclear war,' in the UN headquarters in New York.
In 2012, Petrov was honored with the German Media Prize, also awarded to Nelson Mandela, Dalai Lama and Kofi Annan. Next year he received another accolade, the Dresden Peace Prize, with the prize given by a 25-year-old Dresden resident, who `belongs to the generation that would not have survived had it not been for Stanislav Petrov.'
Based on his story, the movie `The man who saved the world' premiered in 2014, featuring actor Kevin Costner. The actor sent Petrov $500 as a "thank you" for making the right decision.
"At first when people started telling me that these TV reports had started calling me a hero, I was surprised. I never thought of myself as one - after all, I was literally just doing my job," Petrov said.

When I returned to UK after years working abroad, mostly in hot countries, I wasn't prepared for what I found: widespread pedophile elites in almost all hierarchical structures of society - church, politics, media, judiciary, show-biz etc.
When voicing those concerns I was immediately attacked by people who seemed to have an interest in keeping the public in ignorance of the true situation.
Soon learned to use those tactics to smoke out the pedophile apologists and cover-uppers: and yes they were all hierarchy folk, magistrates, lawyers, senior policemen and suchlike (including top BBC bosses).
So if I suddenly disappear - you might guess what happened.

Germany confirms stolen Syrian passports as EU govts `bury heads in sand' over migrants & terrorism
The EU is burying its head in the sand while dealing with the refugee influx that can hide terrorists, a former intelligence officer told RT. The assertion comes as the German Interior Ministry has confirmed it knew about the thousands of blank passports stolen in Syria.
"Allowing such a large influx of refugees into Europe was ill-thought," Chris Hunter, a former UK army intelligence officer, told RT.
Hunter recalled the "sheer number" of terrorist incidents which Europe witnessed over the last three years that were linked to IS (Islamic State, also known as ISIS/ISIL).
"[This] shows us that even with a small number of terrorists potentially on the radar the [European] governments have no ability to cope [with them] and are incapable of doing so," he concluded.
Any European country is going to deal "with a large number of potential terrorists moving into EU countries," Hunter said, referring to "slack border controls" in EU countries.
"They don't understand the sheer magnitude of this problem. They are burying their heads in the sand. A lot needs to be done. And if it isn't done, we will see significant terrorist incidents," Hunter stated.
Earlier `Bild am Sonntag' newspaper reported that German authorities believe that Islamic State terrorists have stolen over 11,000 blank Syrian passports. The paper cited confidential documents of the German Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA), the Interior Ministry and the country's Federal Police (BPOL).
Contacted by RT, the German Interior Ministry confirmed it had known about stolen Syrian `blank passports.'
"It has long been known that so-called "blank passports" were stolen from the Syrian regime. These "stolen" Syrian blank passport documents are listed in the INTERPOL database as "Lost documents", so that the passports can be matched with passports presented on arrival," the statement said.
In 2016 Interpol released a statement, saying that its Stolen and Lost Travel Documents (SLTD) database holds "details of some 250,000 stolen and lost Syrian and Iraqi passports, of which more than 190,000 were reported stolen as blank."
Europe has recently witnessed the biggest refugee crisis since World War II, which reached its peak in 2015.

Over 160,000 people sought asylum in the EU in the first quarter of 2017, according to the recent report from Eurostat which provides statistical data to the EU bodies. Syria and Afghanistan are the origin countries of most of the refugees.
The bulk of asylum applications in 2017 was registered in Germany, Italy, France, Greece and the UK. "These 5 Member States together account for 80 per cent of all first time applicants in the EU-28," the report said, adding that Germany issued by far "the most total first instance decisions during the first quarter of 2017."
Europe has already fallen victim to a series of terrorist attacks carried out by refugees and claimed by Islamic State. Germany, which sticks to the `open door policy', promoted by Angela Merkel, has suffered attacks of this nature. One of its deadliest attacks so far took place during Christmas celebrations in Berlin in December 2016. A Tunisian asylum seeker who had pledged his allegiance to Islamic State plowed a truck into a Christmas market, killing 12 people.
The main suspect in the deadly Stockholm truck rampage in Drottninggatan in April this year was also a rejected asylum-seeker and an Islamic State sympathizer. Four people were killed and over a dozen people were injured in the attack.

Indian couple fly to Florida to beat daughter-in-law
An Indian couple flew 8,000 miles (13,000km) to help "discipline" their daughter-in-law, police in Florida say.
Jasbir Kalsi, 67, and his wife Bhupinder, 62, are said to have travelled from the Punjab region to Hillsborough County to help "counsel and discipline" son Devbir's wife.
Silky Gaind was discovered battered and bruised by a police officer on Saturday after getting a message to her parents.
Her in-laws and husband are now facing multiple charges, including battery.
Her father-in-law, who had been visiting with his wife for about a month, also allegedly held a knife to her throat.
'Kill me to death'
Ms Gaind, 33, had been held for some time before deputies from the Hillsborough County Sheriff Office arrived at her door, local media reported.
Even then, the family attempted to bar them from entering the house, forcing the officers to call for back up as Ms Gaind called on them to help her and her one-year-old daughter.
At a court hearing on Sunday, Ms Gaind told a judge her 33-year-old husband had left her in fear for her life.
"I am so scared, because last night he was telling me he was going to kill me if I call the police. He would kill me to death, you know? He told me it would take 10 minutes for police to come and before that he would kill me and then kill himself," she said, according to Bay News 9.
WFLA reported Jasbir Kalsi was facing charges of aggravated battery with a knife, while her husband Devbir had been charged with felony battery.
Both are charged with false imprisonment, child abuse and denying access to 911.
Bhupinder Kalsi was charged with battery domestic violence and failure to report child abuse.

`Everyone will be Muslim because of our stupidity' Catholic leader blasts `WEAK' church
Monsignor Carlo Liberati, an Italian Archbishop, gave the warning after observing the growing number of detention centres opening up in Europe, suggesting it was a sure fire way to have the Islamic faith become mainstream.
He said: "In 10 years we will all be Muslims because of our stupidity. Italy and Europe live in a pagan and atheist way, they make laws that go against God and they have traditions that are proper of paganism.
"All of this moral and religious decadence favours Islam."
He added: "We have a weak Christian faith. The Church nowadays does not work well and seminaries are empty.
"Parishes are the only thing still standing. We need a true Christian life. All this paves the way to Islam. In addition to this, they have children and we do not. We are in full decline."
Italy, along with the rest of Europe, has become a hotspot for immigration in the past decade.
A religious figure has blasted the catholic church for donating too much to migrants
Figures show that there were 5,014,437 foreign nationals resident in Italy as of January 1, 2015, an increase of 92,352 on the previous year.
Italy has also seen a sharp rise in the number of illegal immigrants who dock on its shores after making the dangerous boat ride from North Africa across the Mediterranean sea.
And there has been a growing number of Eastern Europeans and Romanians migrating to the country since the expansion of the European Union.
Liberati claims Italy's desire to help other nationalities is leaving its own country's poor people destitute.
Many of the migrants that have travelled to Italy have received help from the country
He added: "We help without delay those coming from outside and we forget many poor and old Italians who are eating from the trash. We need policies that take care of Italians first: our young people and the unemployed.
"I am a protester. If I were not a priest, I'd be out there demonstrating in the squares. What is the point of so many migrants that instead of thanking for the food we give them, they just throw it, spend hours with their cell phones and even organise riots?"
Liberati even accused the Catholic church of donating too much money to the recent migrants.
He said: "Giving money to migrants wandering around town is not only wrong, but morally harmful because we encourage their behaviour and they get used to that, not mentioning the fact that we already feed them.
"I think sometimes this creates a beggars' network. I remember that my father went to work very hard as a migrant in Australia so I could go to the seminar. So he has experienced in his own skin the discomfort of poverty and the noble virtue of gratitude."

More than half UK population has no religion, finds survey
British Social Attitudes survey shows generation gap on religious affiliation is widening with only 3% of adults under 24 describing themselves as Anglican
The survey found that 53% of all adults had no religious affiliation, up from 48% in 2015.
The Church of England is facing a catastrophic fall in the proportion of young adults who describe themselves as Anglican as new data shows an acceleration towards a secular society.
For the first time, more than half the population say they have no religion, and the generation gap on religious affiliation is widening, according to the British Social Attitudes survey.
Only 3% of adults under the age of 24 describe themselves as Anglican - fewer than the 5% who identify as Catholic. Almost three out of four 18-24 year olds say they have no religion, a rise of nine percentage points since 2015.
Among the next age group, 25-34 year olds, only 5% identify as Anglicans and 9% say they are Catholic. The presence in the UK of young European workers may be a factor in the relatively high proportion of young Catholics.
Among all adults in Britain, only 15% consider themselves to be Anglican, compared with almost one in three at the turn of the century, according to BSA data. Nine percent overall identify as Catholics, 17% as "other Christian" and 6% say they belong to non-Christian religions.
More generally, 53% of all adults describe themselves as having no religious affiliation, up from 48% in 2015. The latest figure is the highest since the BSA survey began tracking religious affiliation in 1983, when 31% said they had no religion.
While the fall in religious affiliation is being driven by the young, the proportion of people over the age of 75 saying they have no religion is 27%. A much higher proportion, 40%, identify as C of E or Anglican.
Despite the rapidly shrinking proportion of the public identifying as Anglican, the C of E continues to enjoy a privileged status as the established church, with 26 seats in the House of Lords reserved for bishops.
Many within the C of E have warned that its resistance to same-sex marriage, and the difficulty of some churches in accepting LGBTI Christians, have alienated almost an entire generation of young adults. Some young people also view the C of E as failing to embrace and represent the diversity of 21st-century Britain.
C of E leaders are aware of the risk of atrophy, with a warning last year that numbers attending church were expected to continue to decline for the next three decades. They have embarked on an evangelism and reform programme aimed at modernising the church and increasing by 50% the number of priests being trained to 600 recruits a year.
Paul Bayes, the bishop of Liverpool, said the BSA figures "bring a continuing challenge to the churches, to speak clearly of our faith into a sceptical and plural world".
He added: "In this modern world people are more willing to be honest and say they have `no religion' rather than casually saying they are `C of E'. This honesty is welcome - But saying `no religion' is not the same as a considered atheism. People's minds, and hearts, remain open."
Both God and the church remained relevant, he said. "We in the church, and all who love the church, need to keep finding ways to show and tell those who say they have `no religion' that faith - faith in the God who loves them still - can make that life-transforming difference for them and for the world."
Roger Harding, of the National Centre for Social Research which publishes the BSA survey, said the latest figures followed "the long-term trend of more and more of us not being religious".
He added: "The differences by age are stark and, with so many younger people not having a religion, it's hard to see this change abating any time soon. The falls in those belonging to the Church of England are the most notable, but these figures should cause all religious leaders to pause for thought."
Humanist UK said the figures raised fresh questions about the place of churches in running state schools and their other privileges.
"How can it be right that 97% of young people today are not Anglicans, but some 20% of the state schools to which their children will go belong to the C of E? More generally, how can the Church of England remain in any meaningful sense the national legally established church, when it caters for such a small portion of the population?," said Humanist UK's chief executive, Andrew Copson. Terry Sanderson, president of the National Secular Society, said: "These statistics indicate that the time has come for this country to have a serious debate about the place of religion in our society."
The BSA data called into question the existence of faith schools and reserved seats for bishops in the House of Lords, he added.

Thousands of Syrians refugees are returning home from Turkey just in time to celebrate a major Muslim holiday amid significantly improved security, provided to a great extent by the Russian military and the reconciliation efforts within the de-escalation zones.
At the start of the year, Syria's President Bashar Assad estimated that some 4.8 million Syrian refugees have fled the country during the ongoing civil war. Turkey has welcomed almost three million Syrians since the conflict broke out in 2011.

`Youth gangs openly sell drugs, carry guns in Swedish no-go zones' - local shopkeeper to RT
Swedish police have recently expanded their list of so-called `vulnerable areas,' where crime and extremism run rampant. RT talked to locals and observers about the problems in these troubled areas, widely known as `no-go zones.'
Sixty-one neighborhoods throughout the country were identified in the latest Swedish police report as vulnerable areas, with 23 being categorized as particularly vulnerable, up from 15 last year. These hotspots are `characterized by a low socio-economic status where criminals have an impact on the local community,' according to the police definition.
An estimated 5,000 criminals are operating in these areas, making up around 200 criminal networks in total, according to the report. Witnesses are sometimes afraid to talk to police, and the presence of criminal gangs and the high levels of poverty and marginalization makes it harder for officers to do their job.
"If you run a company in this area, insurance companies do not want to insure you," Salam Kurda, a local Kurdish shopkeeper and chairman of the corporate association in Husby, Stockholm, told RT. "One of the basic requirements for being a successful entrepreneur is safety, but the risk is quite big today."
"If your life is at risk, money does not help," he added. "There has been quite a lot of shooting, very brutal mistreatment of our entrepreneurs, a lot of robbery, so the entrepreneurs have decided to change jobs or move to another area."
These deprived neighborhoods have largely immigrant or foreign-born populations, with a higher unemployment rate compared to native Swedes. These neighborhoods also serve as a breeding ground for radicalization and Islamist extremism. According to the Swedish Defense University, 70 percent of jihadi fighters that left Sweden to join Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists came from these `vulnerable areas.'
"The problem is the cultural difference and that these immigrants that come to Sweden do not want to integrate, or some of them do not want to integrate. We see this especially in many of the European countries where they have taken a lot of immigrants," Danish TV editor and host Jonas Christensen told RT.
"We don't see it in, for example, Poland or Hungary. But in Germany, or in the country where I live, in Denmark, we also have no-go zones, in Copenhagen for example; and Sweden also, especially in places where they have taken in a lot of immigrants," he explained.
"We see these problems also in France and Belgium. And in Sweden, government people, they don't want to admit that this is actually a problem so they don't want to mention these no-go zones as no-go zones."
Successive waves of refugees and migrants have come to Sweden for decades, first escaping war zones in the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s, and now from Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Somalia. Fully integrating these arrivals, who often come from conservative Muslim societies, into liberal cosmopolitan Sweden, has proved to be a challenge. In late 2015, Sweden finally tightened up its generous entry policy, cutting welfare payments and insisting that new immigrants present valid ID documents.
The term `no-go zone' was originally coined by Swedish journalist Per Gudmundson in a 2014 editorial for the newspaper SvD, shortly after the publication of a police report that originally identified 55 vulnerable areas.
"The police does not use the term `no go-zones', It is originally military slang for areas under rebel control. But the question is if there are any clearer description of locations where `the public in many cases experience it as if it is the criminals that rule the areas' and where `police have not been able to fulfill their tasks,'" Gudmundson wrote.
Over the past few years there have been numerous notorious incidents connected to these areas, including: a spate of car burnings and gang-related shootings; a car bombing which killed four people, including a 4 year-old girl; a grenade attack which killed an 8 year-old boy; and even a riot that broke out mere days after US President Donald Trump rather preemptively made a speech about what happened `last night in Sweden.'
Although the list of vulnerable areas in Sweden has grown, this allegedly has more to do with the police reclassifying certain areas based on better intelligence rather than an actual deterioration in the neighborhoods themselves. Statistically, Sweden remains one of the world's most developed, wealthy and low-crime countries.
Nevertheless, police certainly face difficulties maintaining law-and-order in these areas. In 2014, the police station in the Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby, also known as Little Mogadishu, had to be abandoned after it was firebombed.
"We need to make a clear shift in direction, we cannot continue in this direction ten more years," Dan Eliasson, Swedish National Police Commissioner, said in June. "Society needs to do more, we need to do more."

Pedophile vicar housed in luxury apartment by Church of England
A pedophile former vicar, and former Church of England national youth officer, is being housed in a luxury apartment paid for by the church.
Paul Battersby was convicted of sexual offences after members of his family discovered a collection of obscene files on his family computer, including a video of a girl being bound and raped by her father.
Last year Liverpool Crown Court heard that after serving jail time in 2010, the 68-year-old downloaded a further 1,730 indecent images featuring children and animals between 2014 and 2017 and also wrote a child sex abuse fantasy featuring himself.
Now, the Liverpool Echo have revealed that Battersby is now being housed in a luxury apartment paid for by the church.
The apartment is in the 29-storey Beetham Tower block, which is found next to West Tower, Liverpool's tallest building. Two-bedroom apartments in the block can cost up to £165,000, or £1,050 per month to rent, the paper reports.
The blocks luxury features include a 24-hour concierge and full leisure facilities - gym, sauna, steam jacuzzi and swimming pool.
Court documents show that the former reverend, who served as a vicar for 31 years, was first jailed for eight months in 2010 after a police investigation revealed he was in possession of 160 photographs of children being molested.
At his 2010 sentencing hearing, Judge David Aubrey said: "Being a highly-intelligent and highly-articulate man you should well recognize that each image that you have observed for your own gratification represents the abuse of a child."
"By doing that which you did, you have perpetrated such abuse of such young children."

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, a Church of England spokesman said: "It is a matter of deep shame and regret that Paul Battersby has re-offended".
"Downloading indecent images of children is far from a victimless crime - we recognise this as a serious form of child abuse, which can have lifelong effects on victims. We apologize unreservedly for the harm that this will have caused."
The statement revealed that Battersby was granted the apartment by the church's pensions board.
"In any case where disclosure is made about a criminal history, or the person comes to the Pensions Board on leaving a custodial sentence, the board works very closely with the managing agencies (for example, the probation service or the police) to ensure that the housing it provides meets the restrictions set for that individual."

Have cut this longish interview down to the final question - because it's the one that interests me.
Finally, what do you think Britain should do to make the most of the Brexit opportunity?
If Great Britain pursues a wise strategy, bringing taxes down, making attractive conditions for setting up businesses, welcoming talent from other countries, this is the way towards prosperity. In the short term it might become ugly but in the long run it will be very beneficial for Britain and that's a big worry for Brussels.
It's important for economists to stress the importance of getting out and the long term benefit it will have for the people of Great Britain, and to inform the general people in Europe that it would be a lose-lose situation if Brussels really tries to punish British people for having made this decision.
The bottom line is basically free trade is great for all parties involved, it brings greater material prosperity of everyone involved. At the same time for having free trade you don't need this Single Market and all the bureaucracy that comes with it.

Sgt Harry Tangye `fed up with drug addicts' Twitter row
26 August 2017
A police officer has sparked a row in the force after a tweet about drug addicts in which he says he is "fed up" and ends: "#TooMuchEmpathy".
Devon and Cornwall armed response officer Sgt Harry Tangye has now taken down the tweet, saying: "It's too big a subject for 140 characters."
Police in Truro said they "strongly disagree" with the tweet.
Off-duty Sgt Tangye, winner of the Police Twitter Awards in 2016, wrote: "Addicted to drugs? I'm fed up with being your keeper. You knew the risks. Find help, use help, sort it, or get lost. #TooMuchEmpathy."

Sgt Tangye told BBC News the tweets were his views, not the force's, and he was referring to drug addicts who refused to get help.
"Some are quite criminal and create merry hell and they are destroying a lot of towns and cities," he said.
"They should accept help but some are feeding on other victims and creating other victims around them.
"I am a very 'people person' but I see the same names time and time again destroying areas."
However, a former addict who is now a volunteer at the Narcotics Anonymous helpline said his family's "tough love" helped him recover.
"I was one of those troublemakers," he said.
"Most drug addicts are in denial and for years I did not think I had a problem.
It was only when my family stopped enabling me, stopped putting a roof over my head, that I accepted responsibility that it was my problem and I did something about it.
"So I agree with everything he says."

Refugee hate preacher received $620K in social benefits in Switzerland - media
A Libyan immigrant who called on Allah to `destroy' non-Muslims during his prayer in a Swiss mosque claimed $620,000 in social benefits for over a decade from a predominantly Christian state, local media report.
Anwar al-Awlaki © AFPMuslim radio station suspended for broadcasting 25 hours of `Al-Qaeda speeches'
In his hate speech, Abu Ramadan called on Allah "to destroy the enemies of our religion," Switzerland's SRF broadcaster reported, citing an audio recording in its possession.
The `enemies' according to the preacher included `Jews, Christians, Hindus, Russians and the Shia [branch of Islam].'
Yet, Ramadan received some 600,000 Swiss francs ($620,000) in social benefits from the Swiss government over the last 13 years, according to research conducted by the Rundschau program of SRF and the Tages Anzeiger newspaper.
According to the newspaper, the man came to seek refuge in Switzerland in 1998 after he fled his homeland, explaining that he'd been pursued by authorities for spreading religious propaganda for the Muslim Brotherhood.
With political asylum granted and a residence permit, the 64-year-old Ramadan hardly ever worked, instead living on social payments from 2004 until 2017.
Ramadan, who can barely speak French or German according to news outlets, is said have preached in small towns of Biel and Neuchâtel, as well appeared on the Libyan Islamic channel, Tanaush TV.
In addition, research claims to have found his pictures at luxury hotels, made when he accompanied pilgrims to Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.
Through a statement by his lawyer, the preacher claimed to Tages Anzeiger that he respects other religions. "Love, tolerance and generosity are my guideline in my relations with Muslims and non-Muslims," the statement reads.
However, according to the tape obtained by the Swiss outlets, he also preached that `a person who befriends a disbeliever is cursed until the Day of Judgment.' In fact, the man apparently never studied theology and also denied being an imam, the newspaper says.
Social welfare official Christian Hauri said his department had no `means to research our clients.' But the head of the social and security department of the city of Biel, Beat Feurer, believes the imam should be deported. `This is someone who does not call directly for jihad but creates the mental breeding ground for it,' says the Swiss-Tunisian rights activist, Saida Keller-Messahli.
Last year, Denmark discovered that dozens of its citizens who left for Syria and Iraq to fight alongside Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) continued to receive social benefits at home. In total, the jihadists received the hefty sum of 672,000 kroner (around $94,500) from municipalities and state-subsidized funds.
The situation was blamed on a lack of awareness in the municipalities and the sluggishness of the country's intelligence services, who failed to issue a warning about the dangerous individuals.
Moreover, the British housing and child welfare system has unwittingly "supplied" terrorists with "hundreds of thousands of pounds," a former independent reviewer of UK terrorism legislation, Lord Carlile, claimed last year.
"[Such activity] has increased during the rise of ISIS. Certainly, the government should ensure that there is no more triage available when housing benefits recipients are known to have gone to another country," Carlile said.
The travel expenses of the terrorists who organized the 2016 Brussels bombings, which killed 32 and injured some 300, were partially funded by falsely claimed British social benefits, a UK criminal investigation discovered.

Catholic Church `exploits legal loophole' to avoid compensating child sex victims - report
The Catholic Church and local authorities have come under fire for reportedly exploiting a loophole known as the `consent' defense to avoid paying compensation to children who have been sexually abused by members of the clergy.
According to the Sunday Telegraph, lawyers claim private schools, religious organizations and local authorities are increasingly using the legal defense to protect themselves from compensation claims.
former Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey © WikipediaFormer Archbishop resigns over church `collusion' in sex abuse
Critics say sex abuse victims are being let down by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), a government agency, because it frequently rules the children had consented to sexual activity before it took place, thereby denying them compensation.
Current legislation, however, calls into question the very nature of the defense, as children under the age of 16 cannot consent to sexual activity.
Siobhán Crawford, of London-based firm Bolt Burdon Kemp, claims authorities have used the defense more frequently in the past two years.
Children's Commissioner for England Anne Longfield called into question the sustainability of such a defense.
"No child ever gives their `consent' to being abused, and the increased use of this line of defense, although still quite rare, is worrying.
© Toby Melville: Church `colluded' with bishop to conceal his `sadistic' sex crimes - report
"I have contacted the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) previously and again recently about this issue and the government should look urgently at what can be done to tackle it," she said, the Telegraph reports.
In one case, a child was told by lawyers for the Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark that his abuse, which started at the age of 15 and included rape, took place in the context of a consensual relationship.
The victim said he felt insulted by the twisted use of the defense.
"I was below the legal age of consent anyway and there's a grooming element to that kind of situation", he said.
The case was eventually settled for £80,000 (US$103,000).
The Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark claimed it `supports the right of anyone who has suffered harm to seek compensation.'
Dino Nocivelli, a specialist child abuse solicitor at Bolt Burdon Kemp told Kent Live: "It is time for the church to practice what they preach and to admit their failings, to take account of the damage this has caused to the lives of far too many children and lastly to apologize for the abuse."

Dossier alleged Gubarev worked with Russian agents to influence US election
US District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro issued a formal request for ex-MI6 officer Christopher Steele's testimony on Thursday. Ungaro's ruling will allow Webzilla CEO Aleksej Gubarev to seek permission from British officials to question Steele about the funding and sourcing of the dossier. The dossier, first published by Buzzfeed, alleged that Gubarev and his company were involved in `altering operations against the Democratic Party leadership' during the 2016 election.
It claimed Russian agents had Gubarev steal data and send viruses in an attempt to help Donald Trump win the US election.
"His response is it is a lie. It is a fabrication. Never happened," Valentin Gurvits, Gubarev's lawyer, told ABC News.
Buzzfeed eventually redacted Gubarev's name and the name of his company from the dossier, which was published on the website.
But Gubarev is still fighting to find out who Steele's sources are.
`My number one question is, "Why was this allegation about my clients included,"' Gurvitis said.
"Where did you get it? What did you do to verify it? And who did you communicate to?"
The ruling will allow Webzilla CEO Aleksej Gubarev (pictured) to seek permission from British officials to question Steele about the funding and sourcing of the dossier.
The dirty dossier was brought to the FBI by John McCain after Steele, who worked as a spy in Moscow for 20 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, shared his findings with the Republican senator.
Steele, 52, said in a British court filing that he wanted the dossier to be known to `the United States governments at a high level by persons with responsibility for national security'.
McCain revealed that he delivered the 35-page document to the FBI because he could not asses on his own whether the controversial findings were real.
Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of Washington research firm Fusion GPS, is also being questioned next week.
Simpson, who hired Steele in the first place, will be interviewed by the Senate Judiciary Committee on August 22.
Aides revealed that the committee plan to ask Simpson to reveal the clients who paid for dossier, but are reportedly `not optimistic they will get an answer'.

Turkish political refugees flock to Germany, seeking safety
The Turkish judge sits in a busy cafe in a big German city. Thirteen months ago, he was a respected public servant in his homeland. Now he is heartbroken and angry over the nightmarish turn of events that brought him here.
The day after a 2016 coup attempt shook Turkey, he was blacklisted along with thousands of other judges and prosecutors. The judge smiles, sadly, as he recounts hiding at a friend's home, hugging his crying son goodbye and paying smugglers to get him to safety.
"I'm very sad I had to leave my country," he said, asking for his name and location to be withheld out of fear that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government might track him down. "But at least I'm safe and out of Erdogan's reach. He cannot hurt me anymore."
Germany has become the top destination for political refugees from Turkey since the failed July 15, 2016 coup. Some 5,742 Turkish citizens applied for asylum here last year, more than three times as many as the year before, according to the Interior Ministry. Another 3,000 Turks have requested protection in Germany this year.
The figures include people fleeing a long-simmering conflict in the Kurdish region of southeastern Turkey, but the vast majority belong to a new class of political refugees: diplomats, civil servants, military members, academics, artists, journalists and anti-Erdogan activists accused of supporting the coup.
With many of them university-educated and part of the former elite, "their escape has already turned into a brain-drain for Turkey," said Caner Aver, a researcher at the Center for Turkish Studies and Integration Research in Essen.
Germany is a popular destination because it's already home to about 3.5 million people with Turkish roots and has been more welcoming of the new diaspora than other Western nations, Aver said.
"Some of the highly qualified people also try getting to the U.S. and Canada because most speak English, not German. But it's just much harder to get there," Aver said. "Britain has always been popular, but less so now because of Brexit."
Comparable figures for post-coup asylum requests from Turks were not available for other countries.
More than 50,000 people have been arrested in Turkey and 110,000 dismissed from their jobs for alleged links to political organizations the government has categorized as terror groups or to U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen. Ankara blames the Muslim cleric, a former Erdogan ally, for the coup attempt. Gulen denies the claim.
The true number of recent Turkish arrivals to Germany exceeds official asylum requests. Many fleeing academics, artists and journalists came on scholarships from German universities or political foundations. Some got in via relatives. Others entered with visas obtained before the failed coup.
The judge, a slim man in his 30s with glasses, arrived illegally by paying thousands of euros to cross from Turkey to Greece on a rubber dinghy and then continuing on to Germany.
The number of Turkish citizens fleeing to Germany has complicated the already tense relations between Ankara and Berlin. Accusing Germany of harboring terrorists, Turkey has demanded the extradition of escaped Turkish military officers and diplomats.
At least 221 diplomats, 280 civil servants and their families have applied for asylum, Germany says. Along with refusing to comply with the extradition requests, Germany has lowered the bar for Turkish asylum-seekers - those given permission to remain increased from 8 percent of applicants last year to more than 23 percent in the first half of 2017.
Some Turkish emigres have started building new lives in exile.
The artist from Istanbul lost her university job in graphic design before the 2016 coup because she was one of more than 1,000 academics who triggered Erdogan's ire by signing a "declaration for peace" in Turkey.
She went to Berlin on a university scholarship in September, not long after the attempted coup. In February, she discovered she'd been named a terror group supporter and her Turkish passport was invalidated.
"Now I'm forced into exile, but that's better than to be inside the country," the woman in her early 30s said.
The artist said she's doing fine in Berlin. She enrolled at a university and has had her work exhibited at a small gallery. Yet with her family still in Turkey, some days the enormity of the change weighs on her.
"In the winter I was so homesick," she said. "I really felt like a foreigner, in my veins and in my bones."

He's right about the suffocating atmosphere of paranoia inside Saudi - outdoors it's dangerous to say anything remotely political or even mention current events elsewhere in the country.
So you can see why, coupled with the country's creepy sexual tensions, that makes their citizens very prone to cracking up and running amok with axe or machete - happens all the time but it's NEVER reported.

UAE ambassador says 'whole of Saudi Arabia is cuckoo' in leaked email
Yousef Otaiba an influential player in world politics and has attended Pentagon strategy meetings
The United Arab Emirate's envoy to the US has reportedly ridiculed Saudi Arabia's leadership in a number of leaked emails,
In one of the messages, reportedly stolen by hacking group GlobalLeaks, Yousef Otaiba wrote: `That whole country is fuckin coo coo!'
In another, sent to his Egyptian wife, Abeer Shoukry, the UAE ambassador mocked Saudi Arabia's decision to ban red roses on Valentine's Day.
In the email, purportedly written by Mr Otaiba, he wrote: `They're just so stupid - I'm sure Red roses are now being sold on the black market for extortionately high prices. They should'v banned heart-shaped chocolate as well.'
The correspondence reveals that although Mr Otaiba believes the UAE has `bad history' with Saudi Arabia, their crown prince Mohammed bin Salman could lead to better relations and a time to get `the most results we can ever get out of Saudi.'
In other emails, Mr Otaiba has hailed bin Salman as being `on a mission to make the Saudi government more efficient.'

Europe must `wake up' to `clash of civilizations' - Polish minister after Catalonia attacks
In the wake of the attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils, Poland's interior minister said Europe should wake up to the `clash of civilizations' where Muslim enclaves form `support bases' for terrorists. He claimed Poland is safe as it had prevented the emergence of such "enclaves."
"We are dealing with a clash of civilizations," Mariusz Blaszczak told state broadcaster TVP Info.
Blaszczak said he asked his country's security services what they were doing to prevent similar incidents and noted thatPoland is safe because "we do not have Muslim communities which are enclaves, which are a natural support base for Islamic terrorists."
The official, a member of the ruling rightwing Law and Justice Party (PiS), maintained Europe should `wake up' to what is happening.
A `possibility' to prevent terrorism is closing in Europe, according to the minister. Blaszczak also lashed out at the refugee resettling scheme in the EU, claiming it's `encouraging millions of people to come to Europe,' and that would effectively have tragic consequences.
The politician voiced his anti-immigration stance earlier this year when he suggested that Muslim settlements in Western Europe started from small numbers with Brussels now trying to shift responsibility.
Warsaw has been vehemently opposed to resettling migrants under a scheme advocated by Brussels and approved by the majority of European countries. Poland, along with Hungary, the Czech Republic, Romania, and Slovakia have firmly rejected the so-called refugee quotas, deepening East-West cracks in the 28-member bloc.
Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the Law and Justice leader, accused migrants in October 2015 of bringing cholera and dysentery as well as `all sorts of parasites and protozoa, which, while not dangerous in the organisms of these people, could be dangerous here.'
The xenophobic remarks caused controversy inside the government. Marek Sawicki, agriculture minister with the Polish People's Party, the junior member of the ruling coalition, said this was "a reference to old, dangerous and dishonest sentiments from the time of the [Second World] war," according to Politico.
The blunt outburst comes a day after the deadly attack on a tourist area in Barcelona which left 13 people dead and more than 100 others injured.
Authorities arrested suspect Driss Oukabir who, according to media reports, was reportedly born in Morocco but later moved to Marseille, France, and eventually to the Catalan town of Ripoli, some 80 miles north of Barcelona. However, the 28-year-old denies being involved in the attack and says his younger brother, 17-year-old Moussa Oukabir, stole his identification in order to rent the van that was used to plow into pedestrians on the city's busy La Rambla district.
Terror timeline: How attacks unfolded in Barcelona & Cambrils
Hours later, a second attack took place in the resort town of Cambrils, injuring seven people, one of whom later died. Police killed all five attackers there. All of them were identified as being of Moroccan origin, with one of them being the younger Oukabir.

Three Moroccans and a Spaniard have been detained by authorities, with Spanish police saying the suspects were preparing an even bigger attack, and that at least one member of the cell, 22-year-old Younes Abouyaaqoub, remains at large.
With every new terrorist attack carried out by non-EU nationals, the European public and politicians are showing growing discontent and unease, with Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland refusing to abide by the EU's quota system for distributing migrants across the bloc.
Brussels has threatened legal action against the dissenting countries, filing a formal `infringement procedure' in June which could result in financial penalties imposed by the European Court of Justice.

Europe has endured a series of attacks by foreign terrorists or attackers of migrant background in recent years.
An attack in June in the London Bridge area of the British capital saw eight people killed and 48 others injured. The perpetrators - a Pakistani-born British citizen, a failed asylum seeker from either Morocco or Libya, and a Moroccan-Italian man - first rammed their vehicle into pedestrians before going on a stabbing spree in the popular Borough Market.
In July 2016, a 31-year-old man of Tunisian nationality with a French residency permit bulldozed a lorry into a group of people celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France, killing 86 people and injuring more than 400 others. This attack signaled the beginning of the recent spate of vehicle attacks.
Months earlier, in March 2016, bombings, perpetrated by mostly Belgian nationals of Moroccan descent, left 32 people dead and more than 300 injured at Brussels airport and Maalbeek metro station.
On November 13, 2015, a string of terrorist attacks across Paris left 130 people dead and 368 injured. Most of the attackers had French and Belgian citizenship, but all had fought alongside Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists in Syria and some are believed to have entered Europe among the flow of refugees.
Recent figures from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) say around 119,069 people had arrived in Europe by sea so far this year.
In December 2016, the European Commission advised that EU member states invoke the so-called Dublin Regulations and gradually resume transfers of unauthorized migrants. Under the regulations, refugees must file their asylum applications in the EU country they first arrive in, meaning Italy and Greece are likely to shoulder most of the burden. Some countries have requested permission from Greece to send back migrants, but none have been transferred since mid-March.

`Red Pill' Minister Gets Almost 5 Years in Prison for Child Porn
A Unitarian Universalist minister from Oklahoma was sentenced this week to 57 months in federal prison followed by 10 years of supervised release for streaming child pornography and talking to others about raping, torturing, and even killing children.
Ronald Eugene Robinson, Executive Director of the Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship in Tulsa, was arrested in March after he was observed viewing and discussing child porn in an online chatroom. Some of the kids in the videos viewed by Robinson were under 12 years old, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).
HSI special agents observed Robinson making comments in the chatroom about raping a child and responding to a comment about killing a child after sexual abuse. HSI special agents also went through Robinson's chat logs and discovered that he had engaged in conversations with other individuals about raping, torturing and abusing children.
Unitarian Universalists are part of a liberal religious movement emphasizing a search for spiritual growth over fundamentalist religious dogma. Many atheists and agnostics participate in Unitarian services, especially for the community, and Unitarian churches are often at the forefront of social issues.
Robinson was the leader of a particular group of Unitarians known as the "Red Pill Brethren". Upon his arrest, they said they are "grieving" and "questioning" themselves.
Robinson will spend almost five years in prison, and be supervised by authorities for 10 years following that, but is it enough? What do you think?

Swedish scissor attack: Man suspected of `honor killing' after female relatives & boys `shook hands'
A man in Sweden has been charged with murdering a family member with scissors, according to local media. The victim's wife says it was an `honor killing' because the victim refused to kill his daughters after they had shaken hands with boys.
The incident, which occurred in May 2017 at Stensjön lake in Grycksbo, involved `cutting or stabbing with scissors' in the victim's neck, according to the indictment, which was seen by The Local.
The 46-year-old victim "died from bleeding as a result of the vascular injuries to his throat."
The victim's wife says the incident occurred after the suspect became offended that the victim's daughters had shaken hands with boys - an action which the suspect believed damaged the family's honor.
As a result, the 50-year-old suspect reportedly asked the victim to kill his daughters. The father refused and ended contact with the suspect.
However, the victim's wife believes her husband was later lured to the lake and killed by the man in an `honor killing.'
Prosecutor Gun-Britt Strøm has said the attack was carried out with intent and `could be called honor conflict,' SVT quoted her as saying.
The suspect has denied committing murder, saying he was assaulted by the man and merely used the scissors as a self-defense weapon.
The suspect says he had the scissors in his tackle box, as he was at the lake to go fishing. He claims he would have used another weapon in the box, such as a knife, if he had intended to kill the man, according to Expressen.

The suspect's trial will include nine witness interviews, forensic evidence including blood samples, and an analysis of the alcohol in the suspect's bloodstream at the time of the incident.
It comes just one month after six people were convicted of murder by a court in Gävle, Sweden, after a man was killed for having an affair with a married woman.
Honor crimes are those which are viewed as having brought shame upon the family in some way, with common `offenses' involving those who challenge, defy, or break strict rules imposed on them, such as a female refusing to enter into an arranged marriage.

Ha! An Englishman moaning because no UK cities got into the top 50 - and London was nowhere near.
Actually I've quite liked Manchester in the past - used to vist a girlfriend there for weekends. It's a lively place with nice Chinese food-markets and cultural-products center.
But London I can do without; a mean, miserable, grubby and surly rip-off town (although I used to vist a girlfriend there also, at an earlier time).
Why the `best cities to live in' list rewards the safe and the clean
Attention those who have been merely existing in large metropolises: the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) is back with its global liveability survey for 2017.
Melbourne, Vienna and Vancouver (first, second and third respectively) are unchanged from last year. There has been no in-with-a-bullet for Salt Lake City or Kampala. In fact, the top 10 mainly comprises polite Antipodean cities such as Perth, Adelaide and Auckland, and those inside cuddly, US-lite Canada (Toronto, Calgary). Helsinki is in ninth place, but London didn't make it into the top 50.
In short, it is Secret Cinema as city. Admittedly - and you may think this a disqualifying factor - I have never been to Vancouver, or Melbourne, but I assume both to be full of couples in matching athleisure, mountain-biking home to a well-furnished townhouse to put the juicer through its paces
The EIU is hamstrung by its own metrics: it uses five categories - stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure - to mark 140 cities out of a score of 100. In the name of science, I would be interested to see what happened if you took `healthcare' out and instead inserted the category, `likelihood of ending up on a roof terrace at 3am smegged out of your bagglebox on carton wine while some joker tries to put Despacito on a portable speaker'.
Few will dispute the civil war strife that lands Tripoli and Damascus at the bottom of the table. But there is clearly a middle ground here when some of the world's great cities - Rio, Cape Town, Hong Kong, even New York and London - struggle to make an impression on the list.
Proof is that the highest-ranked British city, Manchester, suffered a fall of eight places to 51 because of the Manchester Arena bombing. Terror, it seems, is a downer. Yet anyone who has spent time there knows that nothing makes the place feel more habitable than community in the face of adversity. Sadly, it is a demotic neighbourliness of the Somewheres that the Anywheres, locked behind security doors in the luxury condos built to replace the Hacienda, will never know.

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair was funded by a wealthy Arab state while serving as Middle East peace envoy, leaked emails seen by the Sunday Telegraph reveal.

Blair's official role in the Quartet, a group comprising the US, EU, Russia, and the United Nations (UN) seeking to find a peaceful solution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, was funded by the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Blair, however, also received millions in consultancy fees by the very same Arab state and the sovereign wealth fund of its capital, Abu Dhabi, raising questions over whether the New Labour founder had a conflict of interest.
A spokeswoman for Blair dismissed the claims, insisting he `never used his Quartet role to pursue business interests' and "did no commercial work connected with the Israeli/Palestinian issue."
Blair took on the peace envoy role shortly after leaving office in June 2007. He was tasked with helping to develop the Palestinian economy and improve governance, but allegations suggest he was too close to the Israelis.
He resigned in 2015 after eight years in service.

"You [the Palestinians] cannot seriously build an economy under occupation but he never once rattled the cage and dared to speak out," - Chris Doyle of the Council for Arab-British Understanding said at the time of Blair's resignation. "He was all too comfortable with a status quo that was unsustainable," he told the Guardian.
Doyle added that Blair had failed in his duty as a peace envoy because of the extensive business interests he had in the region.
"The vital thing is that the new envoy is given a much meatier mandate because the major issue is still impasse between Israel and the Palestinians.
"Blair suffered from a perceived conflict of interests with his considerable array of business contacts, with governments and organisations and companies in the Middle East."
"That also limited his time and availability for this critical issue. This is a full-time not a part-time role."

Here you go Choong - and when we bear in mind that you hardly ever find a cross-section of ALL that's there, only SOME of what's MOSTLY there, we can realize that these teeth probably mean there's fossil human evidence around those caves from a period back to 100,000 years ago at least.
So much for "Out of Africa 60,000 years ago" and maybe, so much for "Out of Africa" at all. The DNA evidence (some Neanderthal, Denisovan DNA in humans around the world but NOT in Africans) could support the `Separate Development' hypothesis.
Additionally I've long felt a `Separate Development' hypothesis is needed to explain the huge variation and sophistication of various Sino-Chinese groups, which would have needed much more time (than is allowed) to develop. That new hypothesis also allows (by positing the Americas maybe as the original development area of those Sino-Chinese groups) the necessary isolation needed for the complex and distinctive Sino-Chinese characteristics to arise (along with skin-tone and skull-shape differences WITHIN and BETWEEN those groups, which seems to need N-S dispersal).
Many facts - summarized at Westward page - seem to support a `Separate Development' hypothesis, and maybe even `Separate Origins' (developed from different earlier primitive hominims), followed by convergent evolution taking place in EurAsia, and far Asia, and even more differently in Africa.
August 10, 2017 by Kira Westaway, The Conversation
Modern humans were present in Southeast Asia about 20,000 years earlier than previously thought, according to new evidence published in Nature today.
An international research team led by Macquarie University applied new archaeological techniques to a longstanding question - were the human teeth discovered more than 120 years ago from Lida Ajer cave really modern human? The techniques allowed us to identify and date ancient human teeth from this Sumatran cave.
These teeth are the key to understanding when humans first travelled through the region, and provide the first evidence of modern humans in rainforests. It was a journey that eventually led humans to Australia.
The Lida Ajer cave, in the Padang Highlands of Sumatra, was originally excavated in the late 1880s by the Dutch scientist Eugene Dubois, who found two human teeth. He was already famous for finding "Java Man", the first evidence of a missing link between humans and other great apes.
But the evidence had been ignored when considering the path of human dispersal out of Africa and across to Asia, mostly because ofr doubts over the age and identification of the teeth. Our study aimed to establish a solid age for the evidence and test whether the teeth did indeed belong to a modern human.
The hardest part was trying to find the cave site again, almost 120 years on from Dubois's excavation. We only had a sketch of the cave and a rough map from a copy of Dubois' original field notebook. It took myself, Rokus Awe Due from the Indonesian Centre for Archaeology, and many locals more than a week of constant searching.
We stumbled across the cave almost by accident. The minute I saw a large rock column in the entrance, I knew we had found the cave dug by Dubois many years earlier. It was important to find the cave again to sample the sediments in which the fossils were found. That way we could make sure that resulting age was reliable.
To establish the importance of this evidence we used advanced modern dating techniques and state-of-the-art imaging methods to confirm the age and identity of the teeth. These techniques would not have been available to Dubois.

German journalist who exposed govt instruction in media coverage faces backlash
Rejected contributions, boycott calls and a public letter refuting her words were some of the tactics freelance reporter Claudia Zimmermann faced after exposing her employer, German public broadcaster WDR, for sticking to pro-government narrative on migrant crisis.
Speaking to RT Deutsch, Zimmermann said she fell out of grace with the bosses of WRD, which is part of the ARD group of Germany's regional public-service broadcasters, after she revealed the pressure on the employees to refrain from criticism of German Chancellor's Angela Merkel controversial "open door" policy towards refugees.
"We are a public broadcaster, we are paid with tax money and that means we interpret the government's view and not that of the opposition," Zimmermann said in an interview to Dutch radio station L1 Limburg in January 2016, adding that it was expected from WRD to cover Merkel's migrant policy "in a more positive way."
"There are various committees that determine the program policies, which instructed the editors to support the Merkel government policy," she said.
`I stand by what I said on migrant coverage'
The interview went on air on the heels of New Year's Eve sexual assaults in Cologne that were initially blamed on asylum seekers of North African and Middle Eastern origin. The violent attacks sparked outrage with the German public and opposition, highlighting the growing dismay with the `welcoming' approach, personally propelled by Merkel.
After Zimmermann's insight into the WRD's story selection started making rounds in German and international media, she was contacted by the broadcaster which sought to "minimize the damage" to its reputation. Although Zimmermann agreed and apologized, saying that she was "talking nonsense" while being "under pressure of live broadcast", she told RT Deutsch that her repentance refers only to her failure to clarify the functions of Germany's Broadcasting Council during the interview.
As for the essence of her message, Zimmermann says she stands completely by her words.
"In the media, not only in WDR, Merkel's migrant policy received a very strong backing by journalists. Some journalists, including me, tried to offer more critical topics, but they weren't approved," she said.

"I haven't apologized for my actual words. I have never disavowed them and I don't disavow them now," she said, noting that contrary to reports by some media, she has never mentioned receiving any `written instructions' from the government.
"It would have been too obvious and would have sparked a protest. The thing is, as I has already said before, pressure comes from above. Unfavorable topics are simply not greenlighted. So a journalist does not have even a chance to offer such a topic," she said.
`Colleagues advised to boycott'
While WDR publicly vowed not to sack Zimmermann and followed through with its promise up to this moment, many of her contributions have been since turned down. She noticed that some of her rejected topics were handed to other WRD journalists.
"I even complained about it," Zimmermann said, noting that the topics she had covered for years, completely unrelated to politics, like international art fairs, suddenly changed hands.
Moreover, the journalist noted that she has been silently ostracized by WDR, saying that the broadcaster recommended her colleagues to steer clear of her and sign a public letter praising the company's integrity and denouncing her remarks.
"The funniest part in this story was that the half of all employees did not sign this letter. There was a heated internal discussion among the employees," Zimmerman said, adding that despite the majority refused to put down their signatures, some media outlets portrayed it as through it was a unanimous condemnation.
"I know that they, in WRD, asked that employees don't have any contact with me, don't talk to me. I was told so," she said, adding that some of her colleagues have continued to back her in private while having to keep a distance in public.
`One-sided coverage on Russia & Syria'
Speaking on instances of biased coverage in German media in general, Zimmermann said she believes the media are telling only one side of the story when covering Russia-related topics and its reunification with Crimea, in particular.
"I would like the coverage of this issue to be far more substantial and balanced," she said

The same could be observed in the way the German media is handling the Syrian conflict, Zimmermann said. She spoke about a colleague who last year proposed to make a story about the other side of Syria's life, not scarred by the war.
"She wanted to tell about a beautiful Syria. About its beauty, about the way they celebrate holidays and that the war is not everywhere," Zimmermann said, adding that her colleague was discouraged by the rejection.
"It means they needed only war reports on Syria, not beautiful images. I believe it is also a kind of a one-sided coverage."

P. 323 of Jim Marrs' `Our Occulted History'
Kamran pointed to three recent laws laying the groundwork for a virtual police state.
One is the John Warner Defense Authorization Act, signed by Bush in 2007, which allows the use of the military against civilians without permission of the governor of a state.
The second is the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), signed by Obama in late 2011, which does away with habeus corpus by allowing the president to detain indefinitely anyone suspected of terrorism - no proof required and no appeal permitted.
Third, on March 8, 2012, Obama signed into law the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011 which criminalized protest. A response to the Occupy movement, this law provides for fines and imprisonment of up to ten years for anyone engaging in "disruptive" conduct near "restricted" areas.
"Taken together, the three laws indicate that the elite is well prepared to quell any civil unrest ruthlessly. The destruction of the middle-class is also being pursued so that it is made homeless and hungry and its ability to protest destroyed. All this is part of the final push towards the NWO through a great war," wrote Kamran.
Didn't Obama have us fooled though?

Subject: Three Secrets - in Jim Marrs' book
Three Secrets - in Jim Marrs' book
Part-way into Jim Marrs' great book `Our Occulted History' and it's a compelling read.
In the middle found a couple of strangely related facts linked by another related fact - none of which seem to be known by our MSM or Academia (or politicos).
Secret #1, on page 237 - "Pete Papaherakles, writing in the American Free Press, wondered if bankers desiring control over the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) might be one of the primary reasons Iran was being singled out as an enemy", going on to note that almost ALL countries' central banks are now controlled by the Rothschilds. Only three are NOT: Iran, Cuba, North Korea.
What a coincidence! It's now clear who `owns' the western MSM (inc. BBC), Hollywood and almost all our politicos and academics, and that we are in a financial `New World Order'.
[ So young soldiers sent to die in in one of those three places can be happy to know they're dying to make a supremely rich family even richer. ]
Secret #2, on page 248 - "a secret prewar Austrian police report proved that Hitler's father was the illegitimate son of a young peasant cook named Maria Anna Schicklgruber" and that it was conceived while she was "a servant in the home of Baron (Salomon) Rothschild" (in Vienna). The Baron was said to have "developed a somewhat reckless enthusiasm for young girls". The boy - Alois - later took the name Hitler, married a cousin (maybe linked?) and had a son Adolf, in Braunau, Austria in 1889. ... "It is possible that Hitler discovered his Jewish background and his relation to the Rothschilds, and aware of their enormous power to make or break European governments, re-established contact with the family," wrote Ralph Epperson. "This would partly explain the enormous support he received from the international banking fraternity, closely entwined with the Rothschild family, as he rose to power."
"This incredible story might be written-off as wartime propaganda except for the fact that the OSS never made this story public, indicating that the tale may have been considered too sensitive to make public, even as propaganda."
Secret #3 isn't in the book; the curious fact that the Rothschilds seem determined to force the world's academics to pretend to believe in `Darwinism', (or rather neo-Darwinism - the hypothesis that millions of small and random mutations continually happen in our DNA, `creating' many small changes in our animal forms. which `natural selection' then culls into new species).
The strange thing is that no real scientists believe in that, if any ever did. As TC Lethbridge remarked "the fossils say nothing of this hypothesis" - and Darwin himself wrote that if many, many transitional or intermediate fossil forms AREN'T found, then his hypothesis would be sunk. And NO transitional fossils have ever been found.
Yet almost ALL schools and colleges obey the dictat from the Rothschilds and teach neo-Darwinism as scientific fact, although they (or the intelligent ones anyway) KNOW it's absolute crap.
BTW - re: `evolution' - we're left with the knowledge that *something* originally created life, and that *something* continually creates new species - but we don't know what those mechanisms are.
PS - Same thing could be said about the Rothschild's ruling that cosmology must adhere to the Big Bang Theory / Expanding Universe paradigm, although it's failed every obervational test. Maybe because it allows the elite to forecast a `doomed universe', enforced by the Rothschild's control of universities, observatories and science journals (see extra evidence, as if you needed it).
PPS - Later - just found evidence of what might be the same thing - corrupt Rothschild control of astrophysics and cosmology in a book review. There have to be powerful reasons for universities and prestige sci-journals to persistently suppress and censor good science while promoting known pseudoscience from fraudsters.
PPPS - the mafia-like grip of fake-science extends to the most expensive / wasteful establishments of particle physics.
PPPPS - We might extend this speculation to the fake `consensus' on `global warming' - since nothing gets published in MSM without permission from the Rothschilds.
Will leave you to read the evidence and work out why the Rothschilds are so scared of scientific truth.

In a region better known for its ice and snow, it's a fire that now has scientists struggling to learn more. Since at least the end of last month, a stretch of land in western Greenland has been alight with a with a "sizable wildfire," NASA says.
The agency's European counterpart, the ESA, was a little more emotive in a recent tweet sharing imagery from one of its satellites: "This Sentinel-2 image of Greenland shows [a] massive forest fire," the ESA tweeted. "Yes it is Greenland."
"These fires appear to be peatland fires, as there are low grass, some shrub, and lots of rocks on the western edge of the Greenland Ice Sheet," Jessica L. McCarty of Miami University told Wildfire Today.
As The New York Times has pointed out, peat is especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change - drying out as temperatures rise - and especially dangerous for exacerbating climate change if it burns.

Bavaria out! German state wants Brexit-like ESCAPE from Merkel and Brussels' rule
A NEW poll shows that one-third of Bavaria wants to break free from Germany and the European Union with a Brexit-like vote to get control back over the state.
At least one-third of the largest German state wants to gain independence from Berlin and Brussels, a new poll shows.
The poll, published by the newspaper Bild, shows that 32% of the Free State of Bavaria wants to get away from the central power of Chancellor Angela Merkel and her European Union allies.
The Chairman of the Bayernpartei (Party of Bavaria) told RT UK that the state should be allowed to make its own decision independently from Berlin.

Bayernpartei Florian Weber said Bavaria should decide "its own economic situation" independently
"We believe that Bavaria should be together and should decide its own economic situation, its own democratic situation, its own cultural situation."
Weber explained that Bavaria doesn't have the influence it deserves considering its size and the number of inhabitants.
"Now we are ruled by Berlin or Brussels. These people decide over the people of Bavaria and we have no influence in the so-called European Parliament. We have only 13 members for Bavaria. Greece, which has fewer inhabitants, has about 25."
According to 2015 estimates, nearly 13 million people live in Bavaria compared to the 11 million who live in the whole of Greece.
Also speaking to RT UK, map maker Michael Hofman said: "Bavaria is a brand. And to me is a better brand compared than Germany. It tastes better, it smells better."
Bavaria is well-known internationally thanks to the annual Oktoberfest held in Munich.
In January 2017 the German Supreme Court clamped down attempts to organise a "Bayexit" referendum, claiming that in Germany single states are not "masters of the Constitution."
"Therefore there is no room under the constitution for individual states to attempt to secede. This violates the constitutional order."
The Bayernpartei said the matter would not be settled by a court but by "the will of the Bavarians."

Cheers to good health? Heavy drinkers more likely to live to 85 without dementia, study says
The secret to a long, healthy life may come from a wine bottle instead of a pill bottle, according to a new study which found that moderate to heavy drinkers are more likely to live to the age of 85 without developing dementia.
Although drinking multiple alcoholic beverages most nights of the week isn't typically linked to good health, the study by researchers at the University of California, San Diego, found that moderate and heavy drinkers have "significantly higher adjusted odds" of reaching 85 without any cognitive impairment.
In particular, men and women 85 and older who consumed "moderate to heavy" amounts of alcohol five to seven days a week were twice as likely to be cognitively healthy than their non-drinking peers.
Reuters - I'll drink to that: Alcohol actually helps your memory, study claims
"This study is unique because we considered men and women's cognitive health at late age and found that alcohol consumption is not only associated with reduced mortality, but with greater chances of remaining cognitively healthy into older age," senior author Linda McEvoy, PhD, an associate professor at UC San Diego School of Medicine, said in a statement.
The study defined "heavy drinking" as up to three drinks per day for women of all ages and for men 65 years and older, and up to four drinks per day for men under the age of 65.
Meanwhile, "moderate drinking" was defined as consuming up to one alcoholic beverage daily for adult women of any age and men aged 65 and older, and up to two drinks per day for men under the age of 65.
The researchers examined the drinking habits of 1,344 older adults - 728 women and 616 men - between 1984 and 2013, by analyzing the information recorded by the participants on questionnaires.
The participants underwent assessments of their cognitive health approximately every four years between 1988 and 2009, using a process known as the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE).
"This study shows that moderate drinking may be part of a healthy lifestyle to maintain cognitive fitness in aging," said lead author Erin Richard, a graduate student in the joint San Diego State University / UC San Diego doctoral program in Public Health.
However, she warned that the study's results are "not a recommendation for everyone to drink," citing people who struggle to limit their drinking or have problems that are made worse by alcohol.
The study's authors also noted that the results are not necessarily indicative of increased longevity and cognitive health, as alcohol consumption - particularly of wine - is associated with higher incomes and education levels which are associated with lower rates of smoking, lower rates of mental illness, and better access to healthcare.
In addition, the study only looked at predominantly white (99.4%), middle to upper-middle-class adults aged 30-79. More than 99 percent had at least some college education, and all lived in California's Rancho Bernardo community.
The study's findings are published in the August issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.

`Germany is a MESS' Merkel tells Trump she REGRETS opening borders to migrants
ANGELA Merkel sensationally told Donald Trump she "wishes" she hadn't let more than a million migrants into Germany, according to leaked transcripts of a call between the US President and the Australian leader.
Donald Trump and Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull agreed Merkel's refugee policy was flawed
Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull agreed with President Trump and added Mrs Merkel's decision not to impose stricter border controls was "one of the big factors in the Brexit vote".
In leaked transcripts of calls made by President Trump to foreign leaders during his first few days in office, the pair agree that "Germany is a mess" because of Mrs Merkel's migrant policy.
President Trump said to Mr Turnbull: "Look at what has happened in Germany. Look at what is happening in these countries. These people are crazy to let this happen. I spoke to Merkel today, and believe me, she wishes she did not do it. Germany is a mess because of what happened."
Mr Turnbull responded: "I agree with you, letting one million Syrians walk into their country. It was one of the big factors in the Brexit vote, frankly."
Trump calls EU `VEHICLE FOR GERMANY' and slams Merkel's migrant policy
Merkel warned to crack down on migrants after deadly Hamburg attack
Mrs Merkel's open-door policy saw more than a million migrants enter Germany in just two years and it has been widely criticised.
The discussion came during a wide-ranging call that focused primarily on President Trump's controversial travel ban and the effect that could have on a deal between the two countries to allow 1,250 refugees into the US from Australia.
The deal, agreed during President Obama's time in the White House, was not popular with Mr Trump and the call quickly turned sour as the Republican tycoon said agreeing to honour the deal made him look like `a dope'.
President Trump said: "This is a stupid deal. This deal will make me look terrible."
The Australian prime minister attempted to appease Mr Trump, but the president says the deal could become a huge threat to his presidency, which at this point was still in its first week.
He raged: "Malcolm, why is this so important? I do not understand. This is going to kill me".
"I am the world's greatest person that does not want to let people into the country. And now I am agreeing to take 2,000 people and I agree I can vet them, but that puts me in a bad position."
"It makes me look so bad and I have only been here a week."
President Trump met Mr Turnbull in person a few months after their bitter phone call
The call ended very abruptly and the bitter exchange made headlines across the world, despite President Trump's denial that the discussion had ended on bad terms.
At one point Mr Trump told the Australian Premier: "I have had it. I have been making calls all day and this is the most unpleasant call all day. Putin was a pleasant call. This is ridiculous."

`Germany in three days and France in one hour' Shock threat to EU from Erdogan backers
WARMONGERING rhetoric is being spewed by Turkey towards Europe after a newspaper close to the Turkish regime declared the country could overrun Germany in three days.
Newspaper Yeni Söz, closely aligned to the government, made the outlandish claim on the front page of its daily newspaper.
Carrying the provocative headline "Turkey can occupy Europe within 3 days", the move is the latest in a political spat between Ankara and Berlin.
Turkey has been vying to join the EU for more than a decade, with official negotiants to become a member dragging into their 12th year.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan attempted to use the migrant crisis as a bargaining chip, striking a deal with Brussels over the crisis in exchange for political sweeteners, which included kick-starting their membership bid.
But relations have turned sour with the EU, in particular Germany, and the two countries have been engaged in a public spat over the past few months.
The paper's absurd claims appear to be a no more than a childish dig at Berlin, as it is a feat unlikely to be achieved.
Despite the outlandish statement, the paper attempts to back up its declaration by building their theory on a thesis of the American political scientist George Friedman, founder of the geopolitics institute Stratfor.
The paper said: "Friedman said the Turks could defeat Germany in one afternoon and France in one hour, if they have the courage to fight.
"If you believe the international research institute Gallup, that asked people if they would fight for their country, then the Europeans have already taken out the white flags in the event of a war.
"Germany is abandoned by its citizens. If we start in the morning, we can have our evening prayer in Bellevue Castle."
The paper references a two-year-old survey which reportedly gaged how likely citizens were to fight for their country.
They pointed towards the results which said 18 per cent of Germans would fight for their country, compared to 29 per cent of the French and 27 per cent of the British.
The barmy jingoism is not far off statements Mr Erdogan himself has made.
In April he described Europe as a "centre of national socialism".
That same month he called the EU "a continent that is rotting in every which way".
The president accused German companies of colluding with the man he views as his political enemy - and who he suspects was behind the failed coup last year - Fethullah Gülen.
And he also made reference to going to war with the EU, saying in another interview: "If you continue to behave like this, not a single European will be able to securely take a step on a road anywhere in the world by tomorrow."
The bitter row between Germany and Turkey has seen relations steadily deteriorate.
Recently Berlin issued new travel warnings for tourists visiting the country, and foreign minister Sigmar Gabriel said he could no longer guarantee investment in Turkey following accusations made by Mr Erdogan.
The president accused German companies of colluding with the man he views as his political enemy - and who he suspects was behind the failed coup last year - Fethullah Gülen.
And in a painful move for Ankara, Mr Gabriel added he would discuss with other EU leaders the prospect of reviewing pre-accession funds being offered.

RE: "14 year old girl raped twice by different immigrants"
I'm forced to think there are cycles in these social swings, even the extreme ones, like sexually violent behaviour.
That's because I knew many folk in the Far East - Muslim, Hindu and in the Chinese philosophies (along with Buddhists) who, a generation or so ago, were leading blameless lives and co-operating with other folk of other creeds around them quite readily.
I remember Ali - our immediate (Muslim) neighbour on a Borneo mountain-top - advising us to steer clear of a small old abandoned Chinese cemetery (there were no Chinese stores or villages left in that area, only a Dyak trader, in a small village on`stilts' on the nearby coast).
He didn't exactly _say_ the cemetery was haunted, just sort-of hinted that `you can't be too careful'.
And his wife Ayesha, a _very_ attractive woman in her late twenties or early thirties, proved to be quite broad-minded, enough to shock me a little at the time, although I went along with her wishes.
Yet I don't think you'll find that sort of thing happening again in _this_ generation, although it's probably inevitable in the long run (i.e. - Persian / Iranian girls were wearing bikinis to the beach or pool in those days - see what I mean about cycles and swings?).
>> See, this country is getting more "Islamic" by the year, nothing seems to stop that but one thing that clearly accompany this trend is that the more Islamic we became the more the increase in sexual crimes involving Muslims topping the chart with the current case of an underage Malay girl being raped by her whole family.

`Indians have high threshold for tolerating stench': Israeli stink bomb fails Kashmir tests
An Israeli crowd control stink bomb known as the Skunk, which smells like raw sewage and rotting bodies, destined for employment in the restive region of Kashmir, was rejected after it was found that Indians easily ignored its smell, local media report.
High-level officials, who were not authorized to speak openly, told the Hindustan Times that the product, which is mixed with liquid and sprayed on crowds out of a water cannon, performed poorly in a test in New Delhi, despite its arrival being announced with much fanfare earlier.
"The CRPF [Central Reserve Police Force] decided to test a few samples of the Israeli product a few months back. Tests were conducted and the stink bomb was found ineffective," said one of the officers present at the test. "Those who can ignore [the] smell can drink the liquid also."
"We used it on a captive crowd - consisting of CRPF personnel and general public. But they managed to tolerate the smell without much difficulty. Maybe Indians have a higher threshold of tolerating stench," another official told the newspaper.
CRPF director general RR Bhatnagar refused to validate or dispute the testimonies, saying merely that the force `does not share' such confidential information.
The CPRF has struggled to contain a surge of anti-government violence in the Muslim-majority but Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir region.
Last year 1,590 incidents where mobs pelted law enforcement officers with stones were recorded, and this year over 400 more have occurred, despite the deployment of over 60,000 extra police officers to the region, which borders Pakistan.
Government forces incited an angry response when they used metal pellets to quell protesters last year, which resulted in over 300 people receiving permanent eye injuries in one demonstration alone in July last year, dedicated to the slain Islamist militant Burhan Wani.
Since then, the CPRF has attempted to use less direct tactics, deploy more non-lethal weapons, and develop technologies, including chili pepper-based tear gas pellets.

China, U.S. and Kenya team excavates skeletons of people with Chinese blood

LAMU, Kenya, July 28 (Xinhua) - A team consisting of archaeologists from the United States, China and Kenya has excavated skeletons of people determined to be with Chinese blood on Manda Island in Lamu County of Kenya, Chap Kusimba, who headed the group, announced at the first "Ancient and Contemporary Relations Between China and East Africa" conference on Friday.
Kusimba, a professor with American University, said it marked the first time such relics were found in East Africa. Zhu Tiequan, an archaeologist with Guangzhou-based Sun Yat-sen University, said the excavation on the island began in December 2012.
According to the team, the skeletons, altogether three of them, had front teeth that are exclusive for the East Asians and after DNA analysis, they concluded that the skeletons were associated with Chinese blood.
The analysis estimated that one of skeletons might be determined to be at the same period as the time when Chinese navigator Zheng He travelled to East Africa in the 15th century. The other two are determined to be living in a period after the admiral's expeditionary voyages.
Kusimba said these people might have come to East Africa through land trade routes or the Maritime Silk Road, adding that no belongings were found at their tombs.
Other relics, including the ruins of an ancient town and Chinese beads and coins, were also excavated on the island by the team.
Zhan Changfa, Secretary General of China Foundation For Cultural Heritage Conservation, said the discovery was made possible thanks to the integration of archaeology and anthropology, and the application of natural scientific technology helped decode more information related to the materials excavated.
Zhan added that the excavation of these relics have provided valuable resources for the study on the exchanges between China and East Africa in ancient times.
The 3-day conference, which opened on Friday, has been jointly organized by the National Museum of Kenya, School of Sociology and Anthropology of Sun Yat-sen University and American University. More than 30 experts from countries including China, U.S. and Kenya participated in the event.

Airport security heightened following Sydney counter-terrorism plot to 'bring down aeroplane'
Screening at all major Australian airports has been ramped up overnight and air travellers have been warned to expect delays following the discovery of a terrorist plot to bring down an aeroplane with a bomb.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who said "the threat of terrorism is very real", warned that airport security has been "enhanced and intensified" in light of the operation overnight.
"These and further measures have been extended to all major airports around the country overnight," he said.
"Some of the measures will be obvious to the public, some will not be. Travellers should be prepared for additional scrutiny at screening points."
He said domestic travellers should be prepared to arrive at the airport at least two hours before their flight.
"They should limit the amount of carry on and checked baggage so far as possible, as this will help to ensure that security screening is efficient," he said.

Police expect to be at a unit in Sproule Street, Lakemba, for several days. On Sunday, forensic teams removed bags of evidence and searched the second-floor home belonging to an older couple and some adult children.
One neighbour captured dramatic footage of a man in his 30s with just a towel around his waist being taken away in handcuffs.
The neighbour said he'd often seen people in religious gear coming and going from the unit. One night recently he saw five men in robes all arrive at the house.
Another neighbour, who wanted only to be identified as Sami, said several homes in the street were evacuated as officers smashed their way through a glass entrance and donned gas masks and oxygen tanks while they searched the unit.
About 1pm on Saturday, the Australian Federal Police conducted a number of terrorist raids across Sydney over a suspected bomb plot to bring down a plane.
The raids took place in Surry Hills, Lakemba, Wiley Park and Punchbowl and were not planned but were a rapid response to information about the plot received by police.
