Here are 5 important reasons to stop talking sh*t about people from the South

This is dehumanizing. And progressives should not be dehumanizing people. Nobody should be dehumanizing people — and progressives especially are supposed to be fighting for the dignity, equality, and humanity of everyone. It is hypocritical for us to claim to be doing that, while treating hundreds of millions of people as placeholders.

Bibi’s Bible stories: How Netanyahu invokes holy scripture to justify Israel's interests

Israel’s prime minister is a big fan of the Bible – especially when the 2,700-year-old holy book can be used to demystify Israeli policy. Benjamin Netanyahu’s Bible citation while defending Trump’s Jerusalem move is the most recent example of this phenomenon.

During their meeting in Sochi in August, Russian President Vladimir Putin presented Netanyahu with a copy of the first-ever Bible printed with commentary by Rashi, a renowned medieval French rabbi and scholar. It was a fitting gift, considering that the Israeli prime minister is known for his fondness of citing the Bible as if it were a UN Security Council resolution.

European Court to Decide if Islamic Sharia Law Can Override a Nation's Civil Law

Can Islamic religious sharia law override a country's domestic law in Europe? That's a question the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights is weighing.

The Court heard a case this week that involves applying sharia law to a disagreement between citizens of Greece who are Muslims.

Christian Concern, a non-profit organization based in London, intervened in the case "because of the importance of the case in European law and its implications for countries across Europe, including the UK," according to a news release from the organization.

TRUMP'S JERUSALEM DECLARATION SPARKS TALK OF 3RD TEMPLE

While Muslims jeer, Israelis cheer President Trump’s Jerusalem declaration, prompting Jewish religious activists to suggest building the Third Temple is closer to reality than ever before.

“What he did … was an enormous step in bringing the Temple,” said Asaf Fried, official spokesman for the United Temple Movement, an association of organizations working towards making the Third Temple a reality.

He added, “This necessarily had to come from a non-Jew in order to bring them into the process, so they will be able to take their part in the Temple.”

Fried sees Trump’s role similar to the one played by Cyrus, the Persian king who ended the Babylonian exile and helped build the Second Jewish Temple.

“There have been amazing advances towards bringing the Temple this year. It was clear that Trump was part of that process, guided by Hashem (God),” Fried declared.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I was very fearful of this movement gaining ground, after President Trump's announcement that the US recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

What really concerns me, should this start to happen, is the fate of the Al Aqsa Mosque, which has existed on this site for centuries, as described in an article from Darmouth University:

The current Al-Aqsa Mosque is built upon the spot the Rashidun and Umayyads believed Muhammad ascended, whereas other scholars believe Muhammad ascended upon the Foundation Stone, now housed inside the Dome of the Rock. Regardless, the importance of the Night Journey in Islamic tradition and its setting within the Temple Mount compound has made Jerusalem the third holiest city in Islam, following Mecca and Medina.

Should any attempt be made to displace one stone in its construction, all hell will break loose in the region.

President Trump's announcement may well have emboldened Netanyahu toward such an act. He is hubristic enough to want to send the IDF to gain control of this shrine, and bring it down with a controlled demolition; whether he's insane enough to do this... may be another matter entirely.

Florida rally cheers when Republican predicts Trump’s Jerusalem embassy decision may usher in Armageddon

A conservative politician at President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Pensacola, Florida suggested that the president’s controversial decision to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem may usher in the biblical end times.

Republican state Senator Doug Broxson represents the Florida Panhandle in the legislature and gave an introductory speech welcoming President Trump to Florida.

“Now, I don’t know about you, but when I heard about Jerusalem — where the King of Kings [applause] where our soon coming King is coming back to Jerusalem, it is because President Trump declared Jerusalem to be capital of Israel,” Sen. Broxson predicted.

That was the only jaw-dropping line of the speech.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I had a Jean-Luc Picard double facepalm, at velocity, upon reading this.

He certainly played to his base, on this; unfortunately, what he, and his brother and sister Republicans, are most likely to reap from this is World War III, created, in large part by Israel's hubristic treatment of all their Muslim neighbors, and the Palestinians in the occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza.

In Jerusalem, 3 Religions Collide and Violence Is Never Far Away

***
The issue of the US embassy being moved to Jerusalem or even US recognition of Jerusalem has been raised at election time in America for decades.

It served as a diversion or smokescreen concealing the establishment and expansion of Israeli settlements in Palestinian neighbourhoods in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Though Israeli governments regularly raised the issue as one of their grievances, it never seemed to be a major concern.

Watch: Jerusalem, “The Flower of Cities”

A beautiful song by Lebanese singer Fairuz encapsulating the beautiful city of Jerusalem, occupied by the Israelis, an occupation that has just been endorsed by Donald Trump.

Jerusalem is an Arab, Muslim-Christian city and will remain thus, whatever Trump and his like say.

Everything comes to an end, and one day the Israeli occupation will also collapse, despite the disaster sweeping the Arab world thanks to the Muslim Brotherhood and its offspring – Islamic State group, Al-Qaeda and their countless offishoots and clones.

The song is in Arabic but you should enjoy it even if you do not understand Arabic.

Jewish community in Iran: all you need to know

Iran, a home for Jews for more than 3000 years, has the Middle East’s largest Jewish population outside of Israel.

Most Iranian Jews live in the capital. In Tehran, there are 13 active synagogues that hold weekly services, five Jewish schools, two Jewish kindergartens, and a 100-bed capacity Jewish hospital. Although there are active Jewish communities all around the country, Tehran’s community is the most significant.

The silent partner in America’s sexual molestation culture, (by Michael Hoffman)

This autumn I am studying the Talmud Bavli (Bavli =Babylonian), tractate Sanhedrin, from 49b to 113A. My objective is to bring accurate knowledge of Orthodox Judaism’s holiest book to the attention of the public and to do so in accordance with exegetical principles free of hatred and bias. Answering two standard objections: 1. To the claim that I am "quoting out of context” — I urge readers to access tractate Sanhedrin and study it in an uncensored edition, and judge for yourself. I am hiding nothing and I am taking nothing out of context. Today’s study is entirely consonant with the contents of the Talmud as a whole, and for that matter, with the rabbinic halacha (law) derived from.

Egypt attack: More than 230 killed in Sinai mosque

Militants have launched a bomb and gun attack on a mosque in Egypt's North Sinai province, killing 235 people, state media say.

Witnesses say the al-Rawda mosque in the town of Bir al-Abed, near al-Arish, was targeted during Friday prayers.

It is the deadliest attack of its kind since an Islamist insurgency in the peninsula was stepped up in 2013.

Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has held emergency talks with security officials to decide how to respond.

What happened?

Local police said gunmen arrived in four off-road vehicles and bombed the packed mosque before opening fire on worshippers, the Associated Press reported.
Pictures from the scene show rows of bloodied victims inside the mosque. At least 100 people were wounded, reports say.
"They were shooting at people as they left the mosque," a local resident who had relatives there told Reuters news agency. "They were shooting at the ambulances too."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Austria accepted its Holocaust guilt. So why is its far right on the rise?

When it comes to the Holocaust, Austria has made a lot of progress assuming responsibility ... Teaching about the Holocaust has become mandatory, with visits to former death camps and teacher training in Israel. The government has paid nearly $1 billion since 2005 in compensation to Holocaust victims, and since 2012, Holocaust memorial projects have popped up at an unprecedented rate ... Yet in spite of this increased sensitivity, nationalism still has a firm grip on Austrian society ... The Jewish Community in Vienna considers the Freedom Party a racist entity, according to Oskar Deutsch, the community leader, who has called on Chancellor-elect Sebastian Kurz to prevent the Freedom Party from reaching power.
Note: The holocau$t is the biggest fraud, lie, and racket in the history of mankind.

China proposes three-phase solution to Rakhine issue in Myanmar: FM

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said here on Sunday that China proposed a three-phase solution to help settle the issue in Myanmar's Rakhine state.
China believed that the Rakhine issue can be addressed by a solution acceptable to both Myanmar and Bangladesh through consultations between the two neighboring countries, Wang told a joint press conference with Myanmar's State Counsellor and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi.

The international community and the United Nations Security Council should encourage such efforts by creating conditions and good atmosphere for the consultations, he added.
The Chinese top diplomat said the Bangladesh government pledged to continue bilateral talks with Myanmar over the issue when he visited the country Saturday. Myanmar also expressed the same attitude, he said.
Wang said the Rakhine issue is a complicated one touching on history, ethnicity and religion, which calls for both an urgent and long-term solution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Chinese Foreign Minister Yi is proposing is completely rational, but unfortunately, does not address the centuries of prejudice against the Rohingya people in Myanmar.

I never thought, earlier in my life, that I would have to say, that there would be a group of hyper-nationalistic Buddhists who would want to exterminate another religious group in their country with extreme prejudice; unfortunately, however, that is precisely what I am seeing happening in Myanmar right now.

Even the UN is characterising this behaviour, on the part of these Buddhists, as textbook ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya people.

I sincerely hope that this can get sorted, in a civil and humanitarian way.

Hillary Clinton PERSONALLY Overturned Visa Ban for Islamist Figure Now Accused of Rape

European Islamist scion Tariq Ramadan was banned from the U.S. by the Bush administration in February 2004 for his financial support of a charity that funded terrorist groups. In January 2010, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton overturned that ban. Clinton personally approved a visa for the controversial grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Now, Tariq Ramadan is facing multiple accusations of rape and sexual assault of minors.

Hillary Clinton's visa for Tariq Ramadan was seen as part of the new Obama administration policy of embracing more hardcore Islamists.

The New York Times reported in 2010:

Six years after using the Patriot Act to revoke the visa of a prominent Muslim academic, the United States State Department reversed itself and said Wednesday that it would no longer bar the scholar from entering the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact this report is true, it wouldn't be that much of a surprise.

When you look at the countries from which the Clinton Foundation routinely took money, the following would leap out at you:

Mrs. Clinton commemorates her 1995 women’s rights speech in Beijing in back-to-back events in New York, she finds herself under attack for her family foundation’s acceptance of millions of dollars in donations from Middle Eastern countries known for violence against women and for denying them many basic freedoms.

‘Cashed-up’ Mother Teresa kept Vatican Bank afloat – journalist

Mother Teresa had such huge savings in the Vatican Bank that if she had withdrawn her funds the institution could have defaulted, according to an Italian journalist.

"If only Mother Teresa had closed the accounts or transferred them, the institute would have risked default," Nuzzi writes, La Presse reports.

The Italian author went on to say how the discovery of Mother Teresa’s bank account is proof of Marcinkus’ long-standing meddling in Vatican affairs.

Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath premiered in 2016 and became an instant hit with viewers. The docuseries featured former members of the Church of Scientology, who claimed that they were mistreated and abused while with the organization.

Season 2 premiered in 2017 and continued where the first season left off, with more explosive accusations that Remini and the participants of the program hope will change Scientology and its practices. The church has repeatedly denied the allegations and released a lengthy response claiming that “nothing about A&E’s Leah Remini ‘docuseries’ is honest.”

Still, the actress has vowed to continue her fight against the organization she was a part of for more than three decades.

Why Medieval Cats Approved of the Plague

From the 12th century onward there were two distinct attitudes to cats. For many people the cat population operated as important rodent-controllers, and every so often a cat would go beyond being a mere working animal and become a welcome pet inside the house. Working cats and house cats were always popular, but now a negative attitude began to run alongside the friendly one. For some people, the cat was now seen as an evil animal, in league with the Devil. For them, the cat needed to be persecuted if Satan and his followers were to be defeated.

In the following century Pope Gregory IX added his voice to the campaign against the evil cat. He was intent on stamping out a sect of Devil-worshippers in Germany who involved black cats in their rituals.
Webmaster addition: This is what allowed the rats whose fleas carryied the Black Plague to run rampant across Europe.

Bangladesh Considers Sterilization to Curb Rohingya Refugee Population

Bangladesh is considering sterilizing the Rohingya refugee population after health officials proposed the move to the government Friday.

Supporters of the plan call for vasectomies for Rohingya men and tubectomies for women, saying “sterilization of the males is the best way to control the population,” according to Pintu Kanti Bhattacharjee, who heads a health service near the Myanmar-Bangladesh border.

“If a man is sterilized, he cannot father a child even if he marries four or five times,” he added.

The idea was put forward shortly after rights activists working in refugee camps said Rohingya women believe that pregnancy protects them from rape and other attacks from Myanmar's security forces.

“Some of them told us that if a woman was pregnant, she had less chance of being targeted by the military or attackers,” AFP reported the activists as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely point out to Health Service Manager Pintu Kanti Bhattacharjee, that forced sterilzations would be another form of slow-mo genocide against the Rohingya people.

But then, that would be the point, wouldn't it?!?

And what would happen to the people who would not consent to having the procedure done?!? Would they be rounded up in camps, and offered the choice between forcible sterilization or death?!?!?

And BTW: has a Burmese-language version of "Mein Kampf" just come out?!? And I ask this, because this is precisely the kind of "racial hygiene" Hitler would have advocated against "the others" !!

I would also like to politely suggest to Mr. Bhattacharjee, that the optics of such a move against the Rohingyas, if the Myanmar government goes ahead with this plan, will be perceived by the rest of the world as a crime against humanity, and rightly so.

Myanmar Rohingya crisis: US withdraws military assistance

The US is withdrawing military assistance units from Myanmar over the country's treatment of its Rohingya Muslim minority in Rakhine state.
The state department said it had also dropped travel waivers for Myanmar military officials, and was considering economic sanctions.
Almost a million Rohingya people have fled Myanmar for Bangladesh, says Bangladesh's envoy to the UN.

Myanmar's military says it is fighting militants and not targeting civilians.
"It is imperative that any individuals or entities responsible for atrocities be held accountable," the US state department said.

"We express our gravest concern with recent events in Myanmar's Rakhine state and the violent, traumatic abuses Rohingya and other communities have endured."

Last week, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said his country held Myanmar's military leadership "accountable" for its crackdown on the Rohingya Muslim minority, adding that the US was "extraordinarily concerned" by the situation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just how quickly the US government will move from withdrawing military aid to sanctions...or, possibly support a militant upheaval here, as the US attempted to do in Syria ,which will greatly hinder any hope for economic development in the area. There are two important factors to consider here, and they both touch on Chinese development in the Rakhine area:

The Pursuit of Money and Natural Resources in Myanmar: the Untold Story

The Rakhine state, where most of the Rohingya live, is very vital for transportation of oil and natural gas, and development of other natural resources, to China and beyond.
