Almost 1,000 acres of land near Bethlehem have been seized by Israel to build an estimated 1,000 new homes on Palestinian farmland [...]
Almost 1,000 acres of land in the Etzion Jewish settlement bloc near Bethlehem were declared “state land, on the instructions of the political echelon” by the military-run Civil Administration [...]
Peace Now said the land seizure was the largest announced by Israel in the West Bank since the 1980s and that anyone with ownership claims had 45 days to appeal. A local Palestinian mayor said Palestinians owned the tracts and harvested olive trees on them.
Yeah, this is just what’s needed after weeks of war against Gaza. The useless State Department has weighed in, declaring it “counterproductive”. Woah careful, the suits at State will be tutting loudly next.
Normally conservatives would disapprove of theft. I hope they continue to do so now, because theft is theft no matter who is doing it.
We know that the Shetland and Orkney islanders are Vikings*, because it was the Norsemen who settle them, and it seems that they aren’t much impressed with the idea of being governed from Edinburgh.
The Scots were harsh rulers, and they tried to eradicate any traces of their former owners, with the inhabitants even being paid not to speak Norwegian. However, the islands could not be completely “descandified”. The last Norwegian speaker did not die until 1850, and some Norwegian buildings – such as Magnus Cathedral in Orkney – remained. As late as 1906, many still felt strong bonds with the Norwegians. When Norway gained independence in 1906, the Shetlanders sent a message to King Haakon VII saying they “continue to look upon Norway as their motherland”.
What a splendid piece of history. At last The Telegraph prints something worth reading. It says that the islands were pawned in some medieval marriage arrangement, but that the contract would allow for them to be bought back for what amounts to £7million today. Why not? Norway has the dough and there’s plenty of oil up there. I can’t see why Edinburgh has any greater claim to govern the islands than London has anyway.
* Point of pedantic order: “Viking” is a verb, as in “to go viking” (to go raiding, adventuring, plundering and other fun things), and not a noun. It was a vikingr who went viking.
By being quite unBritish, really. In the Commons today he annonced some measures to combat “extremists” (known as “muslims” to most outside Westminster) which we’re supposed to be impressed with. Timmy weighs in -
I’ve said for a long time now that far worse than anything any bearded jihadis might do to us is what the c**** in power might do to “protect” us from them.
We invented this human rights shit and let’s keep it going. Not dustbin the lot of it so that some Eton Wet can ponce around looking tough. Abu Hookhand, for exactly and precisely the amount of time that he carried a British passport as I do, is and was entitled to exactly the same judicial procedures that I am to be subject to. And as I don’t want some no neck to be able to confiscate my passport as I get off a flight from wherever just on suspicion nor should that happen to anyone else.
The correct process is suspicion, investigation, charge, trial, punishment. And anyone who tries to change that sequence would righteously have people taking up arms against them.
Shit, have we got to have the Civil War over the divine right of the State again?
I can’t argue with his opener, but then Timmy is a real (classical) liberal and therefore in UKIP and not any party with ‘Liberal’ in its name. The odds of being attacked by Abdul Kaboom is infinitesimally small, in the millions-to-one on any given day, while the odds of power-mad adolescents like Cameron stripping our natural liberties on a pretext is guaranteed-to-one. No, this isn’t isn’t what that long crawl to liberty from Runnymede was about at all.
I heard Cameron’s speech while I was driving and I didn’t take any of it in. All I got was load of political waffle, the sound of ‘triangulation’ as contrived ideas were coughed up. If The Telegraph’s take is accurate then the human rights lawyers will trouser fortunes. Most of the debate in the Commons was typically low-grade, although Labour MP Frank Dobson said pretty much the same thing as Timmy. How bad does it have to be for him to be the sane one?
The impotant thing to remember is that this is all political scrambling by the the very worst people in the country, whose ideologies got us into this mess in the first place.
Just saw a fun story. They posted a map of Americas most Heavily Armed Counties. 3 of the top 30 are right here in Pennsylvania. We made The list of the top 101 Six times. My own county was number 45 on the list. The only State to match us was Louisiana, they beat us though, all six were also in the top 30. However one of our counties was number 4 on the list, their first one was number 5.
I don’t know, it just kinda brings a smile to your face.
As of the date when the Rotherham Child Betrayal Report was first published, many millions of words have been published on this story of the complete betrayal of a generation of young, female, WHITE children who have lived, or rather existed, in towns and cities where Pakistani Muslims men, mainly from the Pashtun tribal regions of Kashmir, Bangladesh and Afghanistan have systematically raped, beaten, sexually exploited them, under cover of a self-satisfied horde of politicians, social workers and, worst of all; Police, who did absolutely nothing to rescue these girls from this hell-hole of a life. When the girls told their parents, and the parents complained, the Police told them that their daughters were just part of a bunch of white ‘slappers’, who deserved everything they got; and this was the opinion of the social bunch and the politicians as well!
It has taken one fearless woman, Professor Alexis Jay, to rip the veil, or should that be the niqab, from the slime which was the truth behind the Muslim peril which existed, and indeed still exists, just one small step away from the ever-so-righteous Muslims who parade in and out of the Rotherham, Rochdale, and Manchester mosques, as well as those in Luton and in many other towns and cities across this land which once spoke of itself as a free Country.
But we were warned that this sort of thing was happening; the gang-rapes, the fearsome brutality, the organised exploitation of White schoolgirls who had the great misfortune to be sent to a Council ‘Care Home’. We were warned ten years ago! But the problem was that, because the person who first made those warnings was not politically acceptable; was not accepted as being trustworthy, was in fact accused of criminal behaviour for uttering that very warning, his words and his warnings were rejected and ignored.
Who was that man?
My emphasis -
Brussels distributed more than £300 million of taxpayers’ money in Ukraine between 2007 and 2013. It went to all kinds of lucky recipients, so it is no great surprise that Kiev blossomed with EU flags last winter during the violent mob putsch which so many idiots in the West supported.
They were generally the same idiots who supported the ‘Arab Spring’, and so helped plunge Libya and Syria into a sea of blood and fire, and to launch ‘Islamic State’. Now these idiots are well on the way to starting the biggest European war since 1945, and are busy blaming Russia for having the effrontery to defend itself against this blatant aggression.
It really is time that we understood that those in charge of this country have no idea what they are doing.
Which is as we’ve noted in here previously. Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine: wherever Western governments send NATO you can sure that chaos and catastrophe will follow. The pattern is pretty clear by now. The politicians, those expensively-educated adolescents in Western capitals, find themselves in charge of vast military resources yet genuinely have no idea what they’re doing.
Russia is the real target in Europe, Ukraine is their self-created pretext. The Western and Kievan rhetoric is now at hysterical levels, with politicians talking of Russia being at a state of war with Ukraine and, by extension, Europe. If so, why has the UN Security Council blocked – three times – Russian ceasefire proposals, the latest instance being on Friday? The Times of India is the source for this news because Western media sources have not reported it.
Note well: the same politicians who are manically, and dishonestly, blaming Russia for aggressions are blocking Russian ceasefire proposals, and the compliant stenographers of the Western media are not reporting this.
Simon Danczuk, the Labour MP for Rochdale who helped expose the Cyril Smith scandal, warns that similar abuse is taking place across the country
Of course it’s happening across the country. The organised, industrial-scale abuse of “easy meat” white British girls by muslim paedophiles and mysoginists does not happen spontaneously in just one place. The felon and former Labour minister Denis MacShane has admitted that he avoided child abuse in his constituency, because he was “a Guardian-reading liberal Leftie” and didn’t want to “rock the multicultural community boat”. Not so Danczuk, who’s got his hands dirty trying to uncover it.
He’s still a pretty lonely voice. If, last week, “far right” groups had been revealed to be recruiting children there would no “far right” groups existing now. Their members would have been rounded up en masse.
It’s interesting that Danczuk partly blames “despotic ” middle-class Social Services managers for indulging the muslims and not caring for the girls. You don’t get more New Labour than highly paid, middle-class Social Services managers. What a fitting epitaph for the grubbiest of governments.
When reality is funnier than the comics…. print the reality.
The speech by former US Vice-President Al Gore was apocalyptic. ‘The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff,’ he said. ‘It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.’
Those comments came in 2007 as Mr Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaigning on climate change.
According to “Some”, IZZY is harmless, well not harmless but localized to the Middle East and created by the CIA anyway. No one has to really worry about them… they are after all the Junior Varsity Team.
Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) (AFP) -
“If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month,” “Terrorism knows no border and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East,”
“You see how they (jihadists) carry out beheadings and make children show the severed heads in the street,” he said, condemning the “cruelty” of such acts.
“It is no secret to you, what they have done and what they have yet to do. I ask you to transmit this message to your leaders: ‘Fight terrorism with force, reason and (necessary) speed’.”
Now if the man whose family and relatives have been feeding this mad dog says if YOU don’t stop it, this thing it’s loose, and it’s coming to feast on you…. It might be worth paying attention to him.
Dealing with the Saudis will have it’s day. The immediate threat however of the foaming at the mouth Dog needs to addressed.
People are about to die. I say the people that should die are the ones screaming Allah Akbar as they rape and pillage. However more likely than not we will see Uncle Fred and Aunt Ginny blown into sauce at the local eatery before the rabble demand that the powers that be act, and act deliberately.
