Israel Launches Air Strikes On Gaza After "Barrage Of Mortar Shells" Fired At Israel; Netanyahu Says Retaliation Imminent

With the financial crisis back front and center in Europe, Israel picked a good day to remind markets that geopolitics remains as much of a gaping risk factor as ever, and after Palestinian militants on Tuesday launched what Reuters described as their heaviest mortar bomb barrage against Israel since the 2014 Gaza war, Israeli aircraft retaliated striking more than 30 Gaza camps according to AFP.

More than 25 projectiles were launched from the Gaza Strip and Israel's planes attacked three of the Iranian-backed armed group’s facilities. There were no immediate reports of casualties from either side, with Israel claiming that the Iron Dome anti-missile system intercepted the majority of the missiles,  but one exploded in the yard of a kindergarten, damaging its walls, about an hour before it was scheduled to open for the day.

“The IDF is currently operating in the Gaza Strip. The explosions heard are related to this activity,” the Israeli forces said in a statement released on Twitter. “A barrage” of at least 28 mortar shells was launched towards several locations in Israel, according to the IDF.

While there was no immediate claim of responsibility from any of the armed groups in Gaza which is controlled by the Islamist militant Hamas movement, the attack came after Islamic Jihad vowed to take revenge after three of its members were killed by Israeli tank shelling. Reuters cited local residents, saying that Israeli aircraft struck a position by the Islamic Jihad militant group in the Gaza Strip as a response to mortar shelling. Israeli military, however, declined to comment on the report.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the military would launch a forceful retaliation for the mortar attack, pointing the finger at Hamas and Islamic Jihad, which praised the barrage as a response to Israeli killings of Palestinians.

The air strikes occurred shortly after he spoke at a public event. Gaza residents identified the targets as Islamic Jihad training camps. The Israeli army said it was “carrying out activities in the Gaza Strip”, without elaborating.

Nickolay Mladenov, the U.N.’s special coordinator for the Middle East peace process, said he was deeply concerned by “the indiscriminate firing of rockets by Palestinian militants from Gaza towards communities in southern Israel”.

Calling for restraint by all parties, he said at least one of the mortar bombs “hit in the immediate vicinity of a kindergarten and could have killed or injured children”.

Violence has soared along the Gaza frontier in recent weeks during which 116 Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire at mass demonstrations for a right of return to ancestral lands now in Israel. Amid international condemnation for its use of lethal force at the mass demonstrations, Israel said many of the dead were militants and that the army was repelling attacks on the border fence. Palestinians and their supporters say most of the protesters were unarmed civilians and Israel was using excessive force against them.

Only when they attack the home of Netanyahu and kill him/one of his, would I believe it's not another Israhell false flag.

You have forgotten the zionist talmudic jew which is the cancer of all. Never forget Dresden 1882..


"Manifesto to the Governments and Peoples of the Christian Nations Threatened by Judaism": The First Anti-Jewish Congress in Dresden (September 11-12, 1882) 


To the Governments and Peoples of Christian Nations Threatened by Judaism!

In the course of the past centuries, the culture, civilization, prosperity, and future of the European Christian peoples were threatened, in turn, by Arabs, Tartars, and Turks – peoples of a foreign race and religion whose attacks and onslaughts were successfully fought back by the weapons of European Christians at the time. Likewise, in our times, another foreign race threatens the culture, civilization, prosperity, and future of the European Christian peoples – a foreign race that is no less dangerous. Nay, in terms of its means and objectives, it is probably even more dangerous than those aggressive national elements. This foreign race is the Jewish race.

The proper instinct of the European Christian peoples has kept this natural, sworn archenemy in check until very recently. It is an archenemy against whom restrictive legislative regulations have only proven to be half measures and inadequate weapons for protecting Christian people.

Since the beginning of the current century, however, this situation has changed quite radically, on a step-by-step basis, in some European countries.

The victorious ideals of the French Revolution – liberty, equality, and fraternity – have torn down the barriers against the Jewish race that had been erected for the protection of the Christian peoples.

The principle of liberty was also applied to a race whose first and foremost thoughts and energies are everywhere aimed at putting other nations in the moral and material shackles of slaves by all kinds of cunning behavior. According to the Jews’ religious and national traditions, all of these peoples were created merely to serve them.

The principle of equality was also applied to a race that does not wish to be equal with us, that considers itself a people privileged by God and [regards] the rest of mankind as lower beings, impure animals.

Clearly Mosley, and others, you are ruled over by Jews. They appear to occupy your every waking thought. You see everything in the world as some vast Jewish conspiracy... seriously, if the Jews are that powerful given their numbers and all that has happened to them, then we should bow down and worship at their feet. Moreover, since this conspiracy has been going on for thousands of years we are obviously incapable of doing anything about it, so we should just learn to enjoy our slavery...

I also notice that you folks claim the Jewish people are not particularly brighter on average than the general population... despite IQ results, another Jewish plot most likely, and yet they wield all of this power... it is that they are deceitful liers, you claim, and the rest of mankind is just... gullible?

No matter how you cut it, Israel is in a tough place. Now you can make the claim that Israel should not exist... Why Israel, and not the rest of the planet, as it has all changed hands innumerable times, and there is not a square foot anywhere to which ancestral claims cannot be made (Israel's as well)... this can only be explained by your irrational hatred of these people.

It must be comforting... you Jew haters that have come to take over this site. All the emotional support you receive here from other low thinking forms of life such as yourselves must be very encouraging.

I grew up among the Jewish people, as I lived my latter teen years in Thousand Oaks, a more or less Jewish enclave in the San Fernando Valley. I ultimately married a Jewish woman, dead now over thirty years. I have seen the impact the history of pogroms has had on this people. It has made them a hard people... even my wife, who was as gentle and sweet a human being as I have ever known, had a hard core...  there were times she would shock me with how tough she could be.

I don't like everything about the Jews... they are, over all, an arrogant breed, although that no doubt comes from the great inside joke they have maintained over the rest of us down through the years. But there is not a people on the planet that I cannot find some objection to.

But in all my years of exposure to the Jewish people, and frankly, life has taken me in a very different direction since my first wife died, I have never encountered so much as a wiff of this conspiracy of yours.

Damn they are good...

Its not Jews, it’s zionists. Blaming Jews for Zionism (aka Rothschild-ism) is like blaming Christians for Westboro Baptist church, or white people for Bill Clinton. But you can’t ignore the very real damage done by Zionists just because anti Semitic bigotry exists. You can’t ignore Rothschilds’ evil just because some poor Jews are discriminated against. Blaming everything on Jews is silly. Blaming many events on Zionists is entirely fair but only accounts for one group of nasty elites, there are many and often they are white men.

Human Sacrifice to Yahweh

Leviticus 27

New International Version (NIV)

28 “‘But nothing that a person owns and devotes[k] to the LORD—whether a human being or an animal or family land—may be sold or redeemed; everything so devoted is most holy to the LORD.

29 “‘No person devoted to destruction[l] may be ransomed; they are to be put to death.

King James Version:

28 Notwithstanding no devoted thing, that a man shall devote unto the LORD of all that he hath, both of man and beast, and of the field of his possession, shall be sold or redeemed: every devoted thing is most holy unto the LORD.

29 None devoted, which shall be devoted of men, shall be redeemed; but shall surely be put to death.

Leviticus 7

35 This is the portion of the anointing of Aaron, and of the anointing of his sons, out of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, in the day when he presented them to minister unto the LORD in the priest’s office;

36 Which the LORD commanded to be given them of the children of Israel, in the day that he anointed them, by a statute for ever throughout their generations.

37 This is the law of the burnt offering, of the meat offering, and of the sin offering, and of the trespass offering, and of the consecrations, and of the sacrifice of the peace offerings;

38 Which the LORD commanded Moses in mount Sinai, in the day that he commanded the children of Israel to offer their oblations unto the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai.

More jewish agitprop from the “Good Book”:

Deuteronomy 20:13-14
King James Version (KJV)

13 And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword:

14 But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.

1 Chronicles 20:3
King James Version (KJV)

3 And he brought out the people that were in it, and cut them with saws, and with harrows of iron, and with axes. Even so dealt David with all the cities of the children of Ammon. And David and all the people returned to Jerusalem.

Psalm 137:9
King James Version (KJV)

9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.


The Jew-Book is full of depravity like this, and yet we are told that it is the word of an all-wise and benevolent deity. We of the West are told that this book written by Oriental savages should be the foundation of our morality. What an inversion of values!

I am a Christian, Kwik... but this is not what informs my opinion on this matter, as I understand there are many atheists on this site, many of whom I have come to respect, as well as others for which such a perspective would fall short... so I bring a material world view to my discussions here.

When I was young... long before I encountered my first Jew... as I learned of the massacre of Jews in Germany (which I know, according to you never happened, while, for myself, I have met many Jews claiming to have been imprisoned by the Nazi's, and who had some whopping good stories to support their claims)... I wondered how it was that the German people could stand aside and watch such a thing take place, or, worse yet, take part themselves. Later, a mother of one of my Jewish friends insisted that the hatred that had followed the Jews would arise here in America... will never happened, I responded. Oh, to be young and naieve again...

You people sicken and disgust me. We had a good site here... replete with wonderful and informed debate. Now we have a major vermin infestation.

Lord Flin surely you see the problem with Zionists and the related big banking dynasty’s correct? Just because there is antisemitism doesn’t mean there are not vile Zionists who use all manner of treachery to gain power. Nothing about the Jews makes them any less susceptible to this than say the English, French, German or American elites.


The difference is you can criticize Chinese elites, Japanese elites, American elites etc., but not Jewish elites. The concern the. is the double bind. Zionist elites do nasty sneaky things, you’re not allowed to criticize them and then true anti-semites use that protection from critique as fuel for the fire and blame ALL Jews rather than correctly diagnosing the problem, which is the elites.

The Jew of the World

By Patrick Grimm

Jewry is the international albatross now hung around the neck of the world. What glorious destiny might have been ours without it. What we might have earned, what we might have discovered, what we might have accomplished without its enervating and meddling weight. But the weight remains; the expeditors of decline are running the store. Like a woman who spurns her man because he has no self-respect, we too have been spurned. The lives of our youth have been declared second-rate by those whose instruction books guide them in the ways of an alchemy-like supremacy. This supremacy turns civilizations not into the comely sparkle of gold, but to a termite-riddled rubble, a decaying mass of flotsam and jetsam.

The Jew of the World has made it clear, at least to his own brethren, that his allegiances to his host country have long since been frayed. His belief in nothing other than his own egotism now animates his breezily insouciant pursuit of a worldly kingdom of limitless treasure and corporate dominion. He now operates openly and unapologetically, yet still cobbles together a template of pseudo-intellectual respectability to cover his tracks.

My friends, it is time to rip the falsely pious front off of Jewry’s activities and expose their deeds to the light of day. The international Jews’ “light unto the nations” balderdash does not equal, in any shape or form, a candle of humble illumination. It is instead equivalent to the bare and ugly bulb that lights an interrogation room populated by Jewish “hate crime” bureaucrats and thought-control apparatchiks. This “light” is not a pleasant glow feeding the intellectual health of a jejune populace, but a raging and unquenchable fire burning our institutions to the ground. Was it not the Jew of the World who encouraged youthful rabble to “bring it all down, man”? Was it not this albatross, these very internationalists who cheered Communist ideologue Antonio Gramsci’s “long march through the institutions”? If our institutions are now not literally turned to cinders, then they are remodeled, restructured and realigned ideologically, so that they provide comfort, ease, accolades and succor to the Jew of the World. After all, he is fond of crowing about all those Jewish Nobel Prize winners, isn’t he?

I have respected your comments for years, especially of interest when you were more Ireland specific and Ireland was going under the bus. That Israel is in a hard place I quite agree, but my personal beef is with their treating half their population as unwanted untermenschen, which given their history, is a little surprising.

I would be delighted to see a Jewish/Palestinian single state, with equal rights and equal votes for all. Given that there are roughly the same number of Jews and Muslims, this should work out in a reasonable compromise. Think it could happen? Neither do I.

And also, whilst the huge Jewish conspiracy is almost certainly silly, there are an alarming number of people in power, in a number of countries, who hold Israeli passports as well as their "native" countries'. Coincidence?

The hatred born by people down through the years, including that born by the Jews, and specifically, the Jews in Israel, is beyond sad. It is an understandable hatred, invaribly directed wrongly, as it is the leaders of these various peoples, or predominately so, in their greed and willingness to plunder their own people, that have lead them to the place of that hatred... invaribly as a distration from their various crimes.

That there are Jews represented beyond their proportion in various positions of leadership, and influence is beyond question. That Jews have predominately leaned left in their political views is also the case... and Jews that inform much, but not anywhere near the majority, of the leadership in these circles is also a given.

I do not like these left leaning, bring the borders down, let's reduce the white race to the point we can reaquaint them with chains, miscreants (deliberate undertoning) anymore than any freedom loving, free thinking individual. And were the conversation to return to... what do we do to take action against those who would enslave us, I am right there with you. And when the pitchforks come out, I promise you that I will not care if the fellow on the prong end is Jewish or not.

But I detest mindless ranting against any race of people.

At least seven killed by car bomb in Benghazi, Libya

Ayman al-Warfalli

BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - At least seven people were killed and 10 wounded when a car bomb exploded on a busy street in the center of the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Thursday night, a hospital medic said.

The bomb exploded behind the Tibesti hotel, the city’s biggest, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, on a street where people were taking a stroll after a day of fasting until sunset in the holy Muslim month of Ramadan.

No more details on the bombing were immediately available. Eight cars parked on the street lined with shops were destroyed.

Benghazi, Libya’s second-largest city, is controlled by the Libyan National Army (LNA), the dominant force in eastern Libya led by commander Khalifa Haftar.

The LNA was battling Islamists, including some linked to Islamic State and al Qaeda, as well as other opponents until late last year in the Mediterranean port city.

Security has improved since then, but two mosque bombings earlier this year killed at least 35 people.

Haftar launched his military campaign in Benghazi in May 2014 in response to bombings and assassinations blamed on Islamist militants, part of anarchy that ensued after a NATO-backed uprising ended Muammar Gaddafi’s rule in 2011.…

Not Zionists and I thought they controlled the Mass Media, hmmmm....


‘Asian’ has become a way of avoiding mentioning the M-word.

28 MAY 2018


Last month, two decisions were made by IPSO, the body which regulates most of the British press, in relation to the use of the word ‘Asians’. A complaint against The Sunday Times was upheld. IPSO ruled that the paper had published an inaccurate headline when it claimed that ‘Asians make up 80 per cent of child groomers’. The Muslim Council of Britain’s Miqdaad Versi called for a correction to clarify that the 80 per cent referred specifically to grooming ‘gangs’, not all child groomers.

But who are we referring to when we use the word ‘Asians’? The other complaint sought to address this issue. It was lodged by Sikh, Hindu and Pakistani-Christian groups, concerned about the liberal use of the word ‘Asian’ in the Sunday Mirror’s investigation into child-grooming gangs in Telford. The Sunday Mirror exposed ‘epidemic’ levels of child sexual exploitation in the northern town, where it was suggested that up to 1,000 girls, some as young as 11, had been abused by Asian men.

But the term ‘Asian’ is far too broad and smears innocent communities, said the complainants. They added that many Asian girls had been targeted by grooming gangs, too. But IPSO rejected their complaint. The regulator ruled that it was not ‘inaccurate to say the men were “mainly Asian”’. Nor did it give a ‘significantly misleading impression’, it said. Presumably, the editors’ code would also consider it accurate to describe these men as ‘mammals’, ‘humans’ or even ‘sentient beings’.

Joking aside, the complainants were right. The media’s use of ‘Asian’ to describe grooming gangs not only masks the ethno-religious identity of the perpetrators – it also throws Sikhs, Hindus, Pakistani-Christians and every other Asian under the bus. Gangs of Indian, Japanese and Korean men are not rampaging across Britain’s towns and cities, sexually abusing underage white girls. The men doing so are predominantly of Pakistani-Muslim heritage.…

I am quite familiar with the Zionists movement... it is no different from skinheads, jihadist, Antifa, and countless other groups... some associated by race, others by ideology. But Zionism is not the Jewish people anymore than the Skinheads represent me. Is Zionism, overly represented in some powerful cirlces... absolutley... but merely as one element of the insanity that has gripped those with more to want it all.

It is in the nature of people to look for simple solutions to problems... and so far as solutions to problems, I am not at all sanguine of the possiblity that man will solve his, but they are far from simple, and derive from the very root of his nature... and hatred of a group of people is always an easy response... and destracting for awhile.

But it is not the Jews that threaten humankind, although some Jews certainly do. And to draw attention to these people is to draw attention away from the culprits (some of which are Jews)... but can be found allot closer to home.

We have allowed ourselves to be usurped by those posing as our betters. I oppose all such creatures regardless of origin, and I am willing to lay down my life to back up my words... so much of it as is left to me.

But sociopathy, and psychopathy, and avarice, lust , vengence... it is found in every race and gender (all two of them).

Attacker kills three in Liege, Belgium, dies after gun battle with police

By Francois Lenoir and Christopher Stern

LIEGE, Belgium — A man killed two policewomen and a bystander in the Belgian city of Liege on Tuesday before being shot dead in a gun battle at a school in what prosecutors are treating as a terrorist attack.  

The man was named by public broadcaster RTBF as a 36-year-old petty criminal who had been let out on day-release from a local prison on Monday. It said investigators were looking into whether he had converted to Islam and been radicalized in jail.  

A public prosecutor told a news conference that the man attacked the policewomen from behind with a knife, described as a box-cutter by RTBF, around 10:30 a.m. (0830 GMT) on a boulevard in the center of Belgium's third city, near the German border.  

After stabbing the officers, prosecutor Philippe Dulieu said, the man seized one of their handguns and shot both women dead before walking down the street and shooting dead a 22-year-old man who was sitting in the passenger seat of a parked car.  

The man then made his way into a high school where he took a female employee hostage, triggering a major intervention by armed police. Students were moved to safety as a gun battle broke out that sent people in the street racing for cover. Several police were wounded before the attacker was finally killed.  

"The event is classed as a terrorist incident," Dulieu said.  

The national crisis center, on high alert since past attacks by Islamic State in Paris and Brussels in the past three years, said it was monitoring events but had not raised its alert level — an indication they do not expect related follow-up attacks.  

La Libre Belgique newspaper quoted a police source as saying the gunman shouted "Allahu Akbar" — "God is greatest" in Arabic.  


Images posted on social media showed elements of the drama: Apparently the two police officers, arms bare on what was a hot sunny morning, wearing protective vests and lying in pools of blood a couple of meters apart outside a cafe; the gunman, dressed in black, waving a pistol in each hand, standing in the middle of the road; and finally the assailant emerging from a building onto the street, firing on police, who gun him down.   

Prime Minister Charles Michel, expressing his condolences to the families of the victims, said it was too early to say what had caused the incident. King Philippe visited Liege, the biggest city in Belgium's French-speaking Wallonia region.  

An industrial powerhouse on the Meuse river, it was the scene of a mass shooting in 2011, when a man killed four people and wounded over 100 others before turning his gun on himself.  

A Brussels-based Islamic State cell was involved in attacks on Paris in 2015 that killed 130 people and on Brussels in 2016 in which 32 died. The Brussels IS cell had links to militants in Verviers, another industrial town close to Liege, where in early 2015 police raided a safe house and killed two men who had returned from fighting with radical Islamists in Syria.  

European authorities are deeply concerned about the risks of petty criminals, including those not from Muslim backgrounds, being inspired to Islamist violence while incarcerated.…

The War on Tommy Robinson

Explain why white men accused of pedophilia are allowed to be photographed and questioned by reporters on court steps, while Pakistani Muslims are not. Explain why a police force that took three decades to start dealing with Muslim rape gangs was able to arrest and incarcerate a journalist within a few scant hours. Explain why a man can be arrested for breaching the peace when no violence has taken place. To the British government: explain your actions, or open Tommy Robinson’s cell and let him walk free

The rule of law is fragile, and relies on the self-restraint of the majority. In a just society, the majority obey the law because they believe it represents universal values – moral absolutes. They obey the law not for fear of punishment, but for fear of the self-contempt that comes from doing wrong.

As children, we are told that the law is objective, fair and moral. As we grow up, though, it becomes increasingly impossible to avoid the feeling that the actual law has little to do with the Platonic stories we were told as children. We begin to suspect that the law may in fact – or at least at times – be a coercive mechanism designed to protect the powerful, appease the aggressive, and bully the vulnerable.

The arrest of Tommy Robinson is a hammer-blow to the fragile base of people’s respect for British law. The reality that he could be grabbed off the street and thrown into a dangerous jail – in a matter of hours – is deeply shocking.

Tommy was under a suspended sentence for filming on courthouse property in the past. On May 25, 2018,  while live-streaming his thoughts about the sentencing of alleged Muslim child rapists, Tommy very consciously stayed away from the court steps, constantly used the word “alleged,” and checked with the police to ensure that he was not breaking the law.

Tommy yelled questions at the alleged criminals on their way into court – so what? How many times have you watched reporters shouting questions at people going in and out of courtrooms? You can find pictures of reporters pointing cameras and microphones at Rolf Harris and Gary Glitter, who were accused of similar crimes against children.

Come and see Stefan Molyneux and Lauren Southern
on their Australian Tour: 


Tommy Robinson was arrested for “breaching the peace,” which is a civil proceeding that requires proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Was imminent violence about to erupt from his reporting? How can Tommy Robinson have been “breaching the peace” while wandering around in the rain on a largely empty street sharing his thoughts on criminal proceedings? There were several police officers present during his broadcast, why did they allow him to break the law for so long?

Was Tommy wrong to broadcast the names of the alleged criminals? The mainstream media, including the state broadcaster, the BBC, had already named them. Why was he punished, but not them?

These are all questions that demand answers.

Even if everything done by the police or the court was perfectly legitimate and reasonable, the problem is that many people in England believe that Tommy Robinson is being unjustly persecuted by his government. The fact that he was arrested so shortly after his successful Day for Freedom event, where he gathered thousands of people in support of free speech, strikes many as a little bit more than a coincidence.

Is the law being applied fairly? Tommy Robinson has received countless death threats over the years, and has reported many of them. Did the police leap into action to track down and prosecute anyone sending those threats?

If the British government truly believes that incarcerating Tommy Robinson is legitimate, then they should call a press conference, and answer as many questions as people have, explaining their actions in detail.

As we all know, there has been no press conference. Instead of transparency, the government has imposed a publication ban – not just on the trial of the alleged child rapists, but on the arrest and incarceration of Tommy Robinson. Not only are reporters unable to ask questions, they are forbidden from even reporting the bare facts about Tommy Robinson’s incarceration.

Why? British law strains – perhaps too hard – to prevent publication of information that might influence a jury, but Tommy’s incarceration was on the order of a judge. He will not get a jury trial for 13 months imprisonment. Since there is no jury to influence, why ban reports on his arrest and punishment?

Do these actions strike you as the actions of a government with nothing to hide?

Free societies can only function with a general respect for the rule of law. If the application of the law appears selective, unjust, or political, people begin to believe that the law no longer represents universal moral values. If so, what is their relationship to unjust laws? Should all laws be blindly obeyed, independent of conscience or reason? The moral progress of mankind has always manifested as resistance to injustice. Those who ran the Underground Railroad that helped escaped slaves get from America to Canada were criminals according to the law of their day. We now think of them as heroes defying injustice, because the law was morally wrong.

The inescapable perception that various ethnic and religious groups are accorded different treatment under the Western law is one of the most dangerous outcomes of the cult of diversity.

Diversity of thought, opinion, arguments and culture can be beneficial – diversity of treatment under the law fragments societies.

The blind mantra that “diversity is a strength” is an attempt to ignore the most fundamental challenge of multiculturalism, which is: if diversity is a value, what is our relationship to belief systems which do not value diversity?

If tolerance of homosexuality is a virtue, what is our relationship to belief systems that are viciously hostile to homosexuality? If equality of opportunity for women is a virtue, what about cultures and religions which oppose such equality?

And if freedom of speech is a value, what is our relationship to those who violently oppose freedom of speech?

Diversity is a value only if moral values remain constant. We need freedom of speech in part because robust debate in a free arena of ideas is our best chance of approaching the truth.

You need a team with diverse skills to build a house, but everything must rest on a strong foundation. Diversity is only a strength if it rests on universal moral values.

Is Tommy Robinson being treated fairly? If gangs of white men had spent decades raping and torturing little  Muslim girls, and a justly outraged Muslim reporter was covering the legal proceedings, would he be arrested?

We all know the answer to that question. And we all know why.

Diversity of opinion is the path to truth – diversity of legal systems is the path to ruin.

If the arrest and incarceration of Tommy Robinson is just, then the government must throw open the doors and invite cross-examination from sceptics. Honestly explain what happened, and why.

Explain why elderly white men accused of pedophilia are allowed to be photographed and questioned by reporters on court steps, while Pakistani Muslims are not.

Explain why a police force that took three decades to start dealing with Muslim rape gangs was able to arrest and incarcerate a journalist within a few scant hours.

Explain why a man can be arrested for breaching the peace when no violence has taken place – or appears about to take place.

To the British government: explain your actions, or open Tommy Robinson’s cell and let him walk free.

The same reason that a U.S. Dentist was hounded and vilified by the MSM for a month for shooting a lion legally in Africa while the same weekend it happened around 23 young black males shot each other in Chicago without a peep from the same MSM. Its a war against white males. Doesn't matter what country you are in or the issue at hand. If you are white you are always wrong and if you are black or brown you can kill and rape to your hearts desire.

Suspected Islamists behead 10 in Mozambique

Ten people including children were beheaded in a village in northern Mozambique in a weekend attack blamed on suspected Islamists, local sources said on Tuesday.

The attack occurred in Monjane, a village not far from Palma, a small town gearing up to be the country’s new natural gas hub in the northern Cabo Delgado province. “We were informed about this tragedy,” Palma’s administrator David Machimbuko said, with the information also confirmed by a local resident, who blamed Islamists.

Mozambique’s state broadcaster also reported on “10 persons decapitated” in the Palma area. Police were expected to give a news conference later on Tuesday. Since October, Cabo Delgado has seen a number of attacks by suspected radical Islamists.

One of the victims of the weekend attack was the leader of Monjane village, a local resident said, without giving his name for fear of reprisals. “They targeted the chief as he had been providing information to the police about the location of al-Shabaab in forests,” he told AFP, referring to an armed group believed responsible for a deadly October attack on a police station and military post in the town of Mocimboa da Praia.

Two officers died and 14 attackers were killed in what was believed to be the first jihadist attack on the country. The group has no known link to the Somali jihadist group of the same name. In the following weeks, at least 300 Muslims were arrested and several mosques forced to close. AFP
