NYC Mayor De Blasio really is hopeless.
Being a Muslim student in New York City’s schools just got a little easier, as Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Wednesday that schools in his jurisdiction will now recognize two of Islam’s biggest holidays – Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr. De Blasio tweeted word of the new policy this morning, saying it was a decision “that respects the diversity of our city,” Mediaite reported. In a press conference shortly after, he also said: “It was just a matter of fairness, it’s as simple as that,” the New York Times reported.
If one goes to Muslim countries, you will find that they do NOT recognise Christian or Jewish holidays. Essentially you have to just fit in. That’s seems fair enough to be – why should they change their culture to suit us? But De Blasio’s pursuit of “fairness” is just another instance of the dhimmification of America under the imperial gaze of Obama.

One of the world’s leading Catholics has said he sees a close parallel between Islamic State and the IRA. Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, said in an interview that the Islamic fanatics who now hold swathes of territory in the Middle East had perverted their own religion in the same manner that Irish Republicans had in decades gone by.
I disagree. The IRA were murderous terrorist vermin but I do not think they took their terrorist direction from the edicts of Roman Catholicism. They may have BEEN nominally Roman Cathlolics, and they may have even enjoyed the support of certain priests, but I think their terror campaign was purely about subverting the democratic process and imposing their Irish republican agenda on a British Majority.
Islamic State are different in scale and substance. They take ALL their murderous intent from the Koran. They believe they are doing as Mohammad intended. They fight the Jihad. They strike down the Infidel. They explicitly seek to create an Islamic Caliphate. They call themselves Islamic State. They kill other faiths. They religious driven barbarity is all too evident to see.
Yes the IRA were vile terrorist murderers who cared nothing for the sanctity of human life. However the Cardinal is wrong to assignate religious motives to the IRA. Do you agree?
I have always argued that you cannot have any such thing as “Protestant” and “Catholic” terrorists. If people choose to terrorise others, they are in no way Christian and so it is oxymoronic to call them “Christian terrorists”. But Islamic State could not be clearer. They are pursuing the establishment of a global Caliphate – Dar al Islam.

Guess what? Madonna is right!
“This week, Madonna dramatically compared modern France to Nazi Germany. Speaking out against anti-Semitism, she said of France: ‘It was a country that embraced everyone and encouraged freedom in every way, shape or form — artistic expression of freedom. That’s completely gone, the level of intolerance is scary.’
That profound anti-semitism was most manifest in the massacre at the Jewish supermarket in January but it is also way beyond that. France has imported millions of Muslims and it has become transmogrified by the anti-Semitism that has brought with it. What Hitler attempted, some Islamists seek to finish. The French response? Post Charlie Hebdo? Yes, this….
France to double number of Islamic university courses

Quick Quick - hop on board.
An Irish printing firm has refused a gay man’s request to print invitations for his civil partnership ceremony, because of its Christian beliefs. Beulah Print and Design, based in Drogheda, County Louth, confirmed it had declined an order from Jonathon Brennan, one of their former customers. The company said its staff were “Bible-believing Christians” who did not support same-sex marriage. Mr Brennan told the Irish Independent he was “infuriated and shocked”.
Perhaps he needs to sit down and have a cup of tea to get over his shock? There are plenty of printing companies in Drogheda capable of producing his invitations. However it’s not really about that, is it? The agenda in play here is one of what I call gay supremacism. It is about denying private business the choice to decide who it will supply.
We have a similar situation here in Northern Ireland with a Christian bakery. Once again, it is being targeted and FORCED to bake a cake extolling gay marriage. The agenda in play is blatant and repugnant. This is all about enforcing uniformity in the name of “equality”. To be more blunt, it is gay fascism and all right thinking gay people must surely reject this activism.

Let’s be clear. The Green Party is essentially neo-Marxist. It wants to abolish our Monarchy, remove our nuclear deterrent, nationalise chunks of private business, increase taxes on the successful, force us deeper into the EU – and make being a member of a terrorist organisation legal. Oh, and it also wants to legalise dope. The Green’s have a vision;
Green Party MP Caroline Lucas is to call for a “progressive alliance” with the SNP as her party holds what it says is its largest ever meeting. At a spring conference in Liverpool, Ms Lucas will say the two parties could “forge a new grouping in Parliament”. The Greens are polling in similar numbers to the Lib Dems and say their membership quadrupled in the past year.
An “alliance” with the “progressive” SNP is code for joining up with the Caledonian Commies who seek much of the same, with the added requirement of breaking up the UK (whilst keeping the currency of course) Normally, one would dismiss the wittering of Ms Lucas as the demented ravings of an ecoloon watermelon. BUT, the awful possibility is that the SNP and Greens could hold a numerical balance of power which if then embraced by a desperate Labour Party, would yield a hard left UK Government intent on splitting up the UK!

All the major political parties are lying to the UK electorate about their single greatest concern – Immigration. We hear various promises about how the Conservatives, or Labour, or the LibDems, will “control” immigration better if only we vote for them in May. Absolute rubbish and here’s why;
The population of England has risen by 565,000 since 2011 because of immigration, a major analysis by the University of Oxford estimates. The figures suggest the migrant population of every local authority in the country may have risen. Two-thirds of the rise is attributed to people from the European Union.
Get that? Two thirds of the continued surge in Immigration is driven by those coming here from other parts of the European Union which has, at its heart, the concept of Open Borders with that Union. This means that the ONLY way there is any opportunity to restrict and control nett immigration is if we LEAVE the EU. All three major political parties are committed to staying within it. Only UKIP have the policy that says we must get out.

Savagery is to be condemned even when it happens in lands well away from you and I.
Suspected Boko Haram militants have killed at least 45 people in a village in Borno state, north-east Nigeria, witnesses have said. The gunmen who stormed Njaba targeted men and boys before setting the village on fire, survivors added. The raid happened early on Tuesday but was not reported immediately because of the remoteness of the area. Boko Haram has killed thousands of people in its drive to establish an Islamic state.
Now, let’s dismiss this description of these terrorist thug as “militants”. They are JIHADISTS. They are cut from the same garb as Islamic State, as Al Shabaab, as Hamas, as the Taliban, as Al Queda. Myriad strains of the same evil. You have to feel sorry sorry for all these people (mostly Christian) being massacred by Boko Haram. One thing we learned from last year is the they don’t respond to hashtag campaigns such as this.
They can only be defeated militarily and there seems little will (or skill) by the Nigerian Government to attempt this. And so the Caliphate grows…..

Here is the current Irish President, back in the day, promoting a made up quote about Israel. He has never apologised, of course.
