Fake Downing Street ‘protesters’ could mark a sinister new trend for the UK | The Canary


On 23 July, a London casting agency advertised for extras to ‘protest’ outside Downing Street. This coincided with a visit from the Qatari emir to visit Theresa May. Since then, the plot has thickened over who ordered the actors. And the whole matter could mark a sinister new trend for the UK.

Protest?

Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the emir of Qatar, was due to visit No. 10 on 24 July. An email, sent by casting agency ‘Extra People’, emerged on social media to book actors for an ‘anti-Qatar event’:

Trump’s Connections With Dictators


Trump’s support of Erdogan shows exactly what Trump is and how he would really wish to govern America.

Josep Goded

Trump’s connections with a large number of dictatorships has raised several questions about his morality and political convictions. Since he became president, numerous human rights organizations have protested against him for welcoming human rights violators onto US soil. However, Trump has always denied those accusations, claiming that classic tyrants such as Al-Sisi (Egypt) and Erdogan (Turkey) are US allies who lead free countries.

Despite Trump’s efforts to manipulate public opinion, the recent visit of the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan caused a political earthquake. During his visit to the Turkish embassy in Washington DC on Monday, Erdogan ordered his bodyguards to attack people who were peacefully protesting against him. As result, a number of protesters were injured and needed medical assistance. A few hours before that regrettable incident, Trump said:

We have had a great relationship and we will make it even better.”

The Break-Up of American Zionism and the Anti-Semitism Allegations


Beastrabban\'s Weblog

I’m aware that I’m in serious risk of doing this subject to death, but this needs to be said. I’ve put up several blogs featuring the videos of talks and interviews given by Israeli and American Jewish activists and historians – Ilan Pappe, Elizabeth Baltzer and Norman Finkelstein, laying bare the terrible history of Israel’s persecution and systematic ethnic cleansing of the indigenous Palestinian population. As I’ve repeatedly said, this is because of the smears against leading figures in the Labour party that they are anti-Semites, when they are nothing of the sort, and demonstrably nothing of the sort. Ken Leninspart, when he was leader of the GLC, was notorious and reviled for his anti-racism, anti-sexism, anti-homophobia stance. And if you want to read what he has to say about anti-Semitism, it’s written down in his book, Livingstone’s Labour. He decries it as one of the worst forms of…

Secular Talk: Saudi Arabia Seeking to Get Nuclear Weapons


Beastrabban\'s Weblog

This video from the atheist news site, Secular Talk, comes from 20th May 2015. And it’s really scary. It’s about a report in the Sunday Times that the Saudis are so upset about the deal between America and Iran, allowing the Iranians to develop nuclear power, that they are approaching Pakistan to acquire nukes themselves. Saudi Arabia also bankrolled much of Pakistan’s nuclear bomb programme. The fear is that this will start an arms race in the Middle East, with Turkey and Egypt also racing to acquire the wretched things. And America looks the other way, because Saudi Arabia is ‘our oil buttbuddies’.

The show’s presenter, Kyle Kulinski, states very clearly why Saudi Arabia’s acquisition of nuclear weapons is a monumentally bad idea. As an atheist, he is mostly concerned about their religious fanaticism. Iran is another fundamentalist Muslim country, but they’re actually far more liberal than the Saudis. And…

Egyptian forces ‘mistakenly kill’ 12 in Mexican tourist convoy


Original post from euronews

‘………………

http://www.euronews.com/embed/313434/

Egyptian authorities say the police and military have accidentally killed 12 people, including at least two Mexican nationals.

Reports suggest a convoy carrying Mexican and Chilean tourists was reportedly travelling through the Black Desert in the western Al-Wahat Al-Bahariya region when authorities opened fire.

Ten others are being treated in hospital, according to a statement by the Interior Ministry.

A “joint force from the police and armed forces” was said to be pursuing “terrorist elements” in the western desert, when the shootings happened at around midnight on Sunday.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto condemned the attack. His Egyptian counterpart, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, has ordered a full investigation.

“A working group has been formed to examine the causes and circumstances of the incident, as well as the justification for the presence of a tourist group in a region to which access is prohibited,” the Interior Ministry announced.

A spokesperson from Egypt’s Tourism Ministry said the group was not authorised to be in the area. However, the tour operator refutes the claim.

Trips to the region must be cleared by officials, Rasha Azazi of the Ministry of Tourism said, adding that the convoy “did not have permits and did not inform the authorities.”

“They were not supposed to be there,” she said.

Earlier on Sunday, Twitter accounts linked to ISIL had reported that they had repelled an attack by Egyptian forces.  ………….’

Amazing: Muslims Get So Sick And Tired Of Jihadists That They Take Sacred Muslim Texts And Burn Them In Public View


Original post from Shoebat.com

‘…………By Walid Shoebat

Muslims worldwide are up in arms. The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Education in Giza, Egypt, Buthaina Kishk had enough with Islamic Jihadi books that go against nationalism in Egypt so she decided to have a bonfire and invited teachers to participate in burning all of the Islamic books in the Giza pyramid area as a spark to encourage Muslims worldwide that many Muslims just had enough with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Ministry of Education in Giza, Egypt, Buthaina Kishk and fellow teachers burning Islamic books

Kishk went as far as appearing before the Egyptian people on television program and explained that she had no regrets because she considered that these books distort her views on what Islam should be. Some TV programs are even discussing burning the primary sources of Sahih Muslim and Sahih Bukhari. The two collections of hadith considered to be one of the most authentic collections of the Sunnah of the Prophet of Islam along with Sahih al-Bukhari forms the “Sahihain,” or the “Two Sahihs” which contains roughly 7500 hadith (with repetitions) in 57 books. These come right after the Quran in importance.

When Al-Sisi called for a religious revolution in Egypt, many went on the media to answer the call and even say that Sahih and Muslim are “criminals” and “terrorists” which the department of education in Jiza even burned 80 titles of books like Islam and Women,Muslim Reformation, Uqba Bin Naf’i, even including the famed Saladin for fifth grade … were completely removed and burned.

The incident was so serious that media all throughout are attacking what happened in Egypt including demonstrations by parents and students. Wajdi Ghuneim, one of the most influential Islamic teachers took to the TV and prayed that the teachers “burn in the grave as throughout eternity”.
