Pressure Mounting on Kerry to Resign Over 'Apartheid'

No Israeli will be having any civil rights within the borders of a Palestinian state. The negotiators have made that plain. Yet Arab and Muslim citizens enjoy full civil rights within the state of Israel


Columnist Charles Krauthammer castigates Kerry for his misguided remarks about Israel potentiallly becoming an "apartheid state".

Once the Palestinians will have their nation state no Israeli will be having any civil rights within the borders. The negotiators have made that abundantly clear. Yet Arab and Muslim citizens are enjoying full civil rights within the state of Israel. Apartheid is Palestinian rhetoriek with which they keep the narrative of victimhood alive. And the arbiter of the peace process has now repeated that rhetoric in private when he thought he wasn't overheard. Kerry should resign effective immediately. He has damaged the cause of peace in a terrible way.

Crocodile Tears Over Condemned Muslim Brothers

The media are oozing implied indignation over 683 Muslim Brotherhood defendants condemned to death today by an Egyptian Court. Among them kingpin Mohamed Badie



On Aug. 14, 2013 followers of the Muslim Brotherhood stormed the Kerdasa police station and massacred everyone in the building. 

The transnational elite and their lapdog media are oozing indignation over 683 Muslim Brotherhood defendants condemned to death today by an Egyptian Court. (Source) They have been trying to pass off the Muslim Brotherhood as the acceptable, 'moderate' and 'democratic' arm of Islamism. Surely some believed their own propaganda, as usual. But this idea always was a horrible mistake. Country after country in the Middle East succumbed to the so-called Arab Spring, which was nothing but a covert operation to bring the Muslim Brotherhood to power.

Zoophiles, the Next 'Sexual Rights' Movement

A British woman married her dog in a romantic ceremony in Croatia. Sounds like fun, right? Not. Once the threshold of mutual consent has been crossed, basically anything goes


While Amanda Rodgers @shebarodgers can be sure she won't find the toilet seat up... there is the chance she might get fleas.

UPDATE: (...) Being a "zoophile" in modern American society, Beck says, is "like being gay in the 1950s. You feel like you have to hide, that if you say it out loud, people will look at you like a freak." Now Beck believes he and other members of this minority sexual orientation, who often call themselves "zoos," can follow the same path as the gay rights movement. Most researchers believe 2 to 8 percent of the population harbors forbidden desires toward animals, and Beck hopes this minority group can begin appealing to the open-minded for acceptance. But if those like Beck are to make the same gains as gays, it's apparent they will have to do so without the help of gay rights groups, which so far want nothing to do with a zoophile movement. What's more, they will have to wage battle with well-funded and politically connected animal-protection activists. And the most difficult task will be to take possession of their public image. In an internet age, zoophiles are more exposed than ever. Bestiality-themed websites are a Google search away. Hometown newspapers have learned that police reports of sex with animals become the best-read stories on their websites. State lawmakers across the country have taken their cues by proposing anti-bestiality laws. (...) (Source)

Pat Condell: It's Good to be Anti Islam

Aha, you're just an Islamophobic racist! Of course it doesn't matter one iota that an ideology isn't a race, or that a rational fear isn't  a phobia. Because that's how the racists justify their hate mongering against the critics of Islam



There's a laundry list of the latest abuses on Pat's YT channel.

UK and Dutch Fighters Chase Russian Bombers

Wednesday two heavy Russian Tupolev Tu-95 Bears bombers were intercepted by the Netherlands Royal Air Force and turned back on approach to Scotland by Royal Navy Typhoon fighters



Two Russian bombers which violated airspace have been chased away by Dutch and British fighters.

The aircraft, believed to be Tupolev Tu-95 Bears, were spotted off the coast of northeast Scotland. They were turned away from Britain when a Typhoon fighter was scrambled from RAF Leuchars in Fife. Aircrew stationed at the base are on standby to intercept unidentified aircraft at a moment's notice. Dutch fighter jets were also dispatched on Wednesday when the two Russian planes entered their airspace. A pair of Dutch F-16 jets intercepted the Tu-95s at about 4pm after they strayed half a mile into the country's territory. The incidents come amid heightened international tensions over the situation in Ukraine, following the annexation of Crimea by Russia last month.

Trail of Dead Bankers: couple shot in Belgium

A spate of deaths and suicides in the financial sector is setting off speculations and conspiracy theories about approaching collapse of the monetary system


Prominent bankers are dying in droves. Here's the tip-off that this is a very big story: the mainstream media is not covering it. 

UPDATE: Today in Belgium a double bill - h/t @1Holland

Late Friday evening around 11 PM a child, 9 years old and a man, 37, a banker, were shot in a hamlet in the Eastern province of Liege in Belgium. A woman, his wife and related to the child, was injured and later died in hospital of her wounds. An unknown gunman fired seven shots. Law enforcement have very little to go on. The victim, a banker, has been identified as Benoît P., the woman as Carole H. (also 37). Both had an excellent reputation. The man was a director of a major branch of  BNP Paribas Fortis; the woman also worked for the bank.  Law enforcement are investigating if there was more than one shooter. Apparently a car had been waiting for them to get home. Then seven shots were fired from an automatic pistol. (Source)

Great Capitalist Inventions: the Airplane

Wright Brothers First Flight (1903). On Jan. 1, 1914, one commercial passenger flew on one commercial flight. On Jan. 1, 2014, an estimated 8 million people flew on nearly 100,000 flights



On December 17 1903, news came through that two brothers had flown a curious air machine for more than a minute. The footage used in this film is actually from their flight in 1908. 

Statistics from the International Air Transport Association, or IATA, show that some 3.1 billion people flew in 2013, surpassing the 3 billion mark for the first time ever. That figure is expected to grow to 3.3 billion by 2014 and represents about 44 percent of the world’s population. But it’s not just people who fly. An estimated 50 million tons of cargo are transported each year, representing an annual value of some $6.4 trillion (or 35 percent of the value of goods traded internationally). Meanwhile, the aviation industry supports more than 57 million jobs and generates $2.2 trillion in economic activity. According to IATA, the industry’s direct economic contribution of around $540 billion would, if translated into the GDP ranking of countries, place the industry in 19th position. (Source)

DUTCH PREPARING 3 F-16 FIGHTERS FOR UKRAINE

As a free country Ukraine has the right to decide to which power bloc it wants to belong (if any). The Russian strategy of ethnic politics is bankrupt and will only lead to balkanization



F16s of the Netherlands Royal Airforce

UPDATE: During the next three weeks three jets will be prepared for a mission in the Ukraine border area. The destination is probably one of the NATO member states: Poland, Slovakia, Hungary or Romania. The wildcard is Belarus. The tyrant Alexander Lukashenko has always been a loyal sock puppet to Putin. But not anymore. He also fears Vladimir's Heim-Ins-Reich policy. To be continued.


EU/NATO ASKED NETHERLANDS FOR 4 F-16S

EU and NATO have asked the Dutch Government for four fighter jets. Apparently the Dutch can muster three. Peace dividend, anyone?


DUTCH SENDING THREE F-16S TO UKRAINE

The Dutch Government has decided to station three F-16 fighter jets to defend Ukrainian sovereignty. More details later today. Watch this space!

Objectivism: Money Is The Root of All Good

Those who believe that "money is the root of all evil" have no understanding of the nature of money: a container of value, a tool of traders and a means to exchange value for value


Speech of Francisco D'Anconia at a party about money in Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"!

"Let me give you a tip on a clue to men's characters. The man who damns money has obtained it dishonorably. The man who respects it, has earned it. Run for your life from any man that tells you money is evil. It is the leaper's bell of an approaching looter."
