Nicholas Sarkozy opposes recognition of a palestinian state

Suddenly, a few years after he left office, Sarkozy is willing to do a favor for Israel by voicing his opposition to the French parliament's recognizing a palestinian state. Or is he? There's a line here to ponder:
Israel finally got some help on Wednesday in efforts to push back against a wave of European parliaments overwhelmingly recommending to their governments to recognize “Palestine,” when former, and possibly future, French president Nicolas Sarkozy came out squarely against the move.

Israeli diplomatic officials are hoping that unlike what happened in similar votes over the past month in the British, Irish and Spanish parliaments, the move in France will face significant opposition, and Sarkozy’s comments will help solidify that opposition.

Sarkozy was quoted as asking fellow UMP party members on Tuesday to vote against the resolution.

I will fight for the Palestinians to have their state. But unilateral recognition a few days after a deadly attack and when there is no peace process? No!” he said, in reference to last week’s terrorist attack at a synagogue in the capital’s Har Nof neighborhood that killed five Israelis.
Note the line about fighting for a non-existent nation to have its "state". Again, this can be construed as more double-talk, and only furthers the lies. Yes, it's good he opposes what the French parliament might end up doing. But that's still no defense for what he said that favors the PLO.

Terror attack at soccer stadium thwarted

The Shin Bet foiled a terrorist plot Hamas was going to carry out in Jerusalem (Hat tip: The Tower):
Members of a Hamas terror ring in the West Bank, run from the organization’s headquarters in Turkey, sought to carry out an array of major attacks, including on Jerusalem’s main soccer stadium and its light rail line, the Shin Bet security service said Thursday.

The Shin Bet announcement confirmed a Times of Israel report last week that said Israel had arrested dozens of members of a Hamas terror network operating throughout the West Bank. The network, Palestinian officials said, was funded and directed by Hamas officials in Turkey who have set up a de facto command center in the Muslim country.

More than 30 Hamas operatives were arrested during the month of September, the Shin Bet said Thursday. The majority were recruited while studying in Jordan and trained in either Syria or the Gaza Strip, which they entered via tunnels from Sinai.

The Shin Bet said the ring was preparing to kidnap Israelis in Israel and abroad, enter Israeli villages, detonate car bombs, perpetrate roadside attacks, and execute a major terror attack in Teddy Stadium, where the Israeli soccer team Beitar Jerusalem plays its home games.
Truly disgusting, and it's fortunate the culprits were caught. And some of their operations were conducted right in Turkey, proving how the country's become a breeding ground for jihadism. It's no wonder relations with Turkey are no longer possible.

London police afraid to patrol solo because of jihadists in streets

It's gotten to the point where the UK's police are afraid to go alone in the streets of London, thanks to all the Islamists they imported (Hat tip: Jihad Watch):
Police are demanding to be allowed to patrol in pairs because they fear fanatics are planning to murder an officer on the street – in a horrific echo of the killing of soldier Lee Rigby last year.

Frontline officers in London feel increasingly at risk as they take to the streets by themselves in cars or on the beat because of the danger of a jihadi attack. Some also want the right to carry protective equipment such as CS spray and batons when they go off-duty, over concerns they could be targeted as they leave stations at night.

Senior figures in the Police Federation have met counter-terror chiefs to voice their members’ fears after alleged terrorists were accused of plotting to shoot officers after carrying out surveillance of their station.

But chiefs have refused requests to increase protection and are calling on officers to be more vigilant in the face of higher risk levels.

In a further sign of the heightened security situation in Britain, the first ‘counter-terrorism awareness week’ will be launched tomorrow with more police on duty at shopping centres and airports as well as providing advice on how the public can spot potential radicals.

Former Scotland Yard detective Chris Hobbs told The Mail on Sunday last night: ‘Frontline police officers in London are fearful they could become victims of savage targeted attacks on the streets of the capital by fanatical Islamist jihadists. Officers are concerned that other than receiving “stay vigilant” advice they are not being kept fully informed of events in relation to the very real threats to their own safety or being afforded additional protection.’
The senior staff don't even want to provide their employees with serious protection. Another example of how Britain's collapsing.

Islam's foothold in Japan

There's an imam in Osaka who's building up Islam's presence on the isle:
An Egyptian legal scholar based in Ibaraki, Osaka Prefecture, says he is working to increase understanding between the Japanese people and the more than 100,000 Muslims who live among them.

Islam has gradually put down roots in Japan. There are now around 60 mosques, many of them established in former private homes.

Mohsen Bayoumy, 55, the imam of one such mosque and a central figure in the Japan Halal Association, says awareness of the faith is on the rise.

Not only are there more restaurants serving halal meals cooked in accordance with Islamic dietary laws, but waiters at nonhalal restaurants often ask Muslim customers about their needs, he said.
I don't know how accurate this is, but no doubt, there is an Islamic presence in Japan, and it is dangerous. I hope most Japanese know better than to be seduced by such degradation.

Left-wing males hate feminism so much, they side with Islam?

Julie Burchill's written in the UK Spectator why she figures men on the left find Islamisogyny so appealing:
[...] to get all Freudian, I think a lot of the reason that some left-wing men seem to have so much time for Islamism is to do not with race but sex — specifically, with suppressed feelings of resentment towards the march of feminism, which they could never in a million years admit to. After years of being yelled at by female comrades whenever they inquired about the likelihood of a hot beverage being imminent, imagine how excited they must get watching big bad men in balaclavas selling ‘slave girls’ in a sweltering marketplace. It’s like T.E Lawrence getting his dish-dosh in a twist over all those Arab boys you could buy for the price of a melon, and boys called Barnaby fetishising the most woman-hating type of rap music in the pop press, and middle-class man-boys who’ve never been in a fight telling rape jokes — only far, far worse.
I think she's onto something. Make what you will of feminism - it certainly isn't defined very well - this proves some males on the left were never happy supporting it to begin with, maybe not even as an anti-conservative weapon. Islamofascism was surely viewed as the best thing to come down the pike by many of these male muttonheads; the perfect reaction to the female species for wanting to forge their own opinions and destinies. Over the past years, Islamofascism has clearly come to be seen as the best way to take apart what men with more brains than they had helped womanhood to work on. Women on the left who're concerned about violent mindsets should be wary of how their male counterparts are thinking, because there's leftist men out there who could betray them any moment.

Yehuda Glick's fortunate recovery

The rabbi who was shot by a jihadist at the Begin Center is now leaving the hospital recovered:
Roughly a month after being shot four times at point-blank range by an Arab terrorist in Jerusalem, Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick is expected to be released from Shaare Tzedek Hospital in the capital on Monday and go home.

Glick has yet to recover completely from the assassination attempt which left him in critical condition, and still has difficulty speaking due to the wounds inflicted on his respiratory system.

In the process of his miraculous recovery, Glick underwent several surgeries in which part of his lung was removed, as well as part of his intestines.

Last Thursday the IDF Homefront Command issued a warning order of two days for the house of Mu'taz Hijazi, the Islamic Jihad terrorist who shot Glick, to be evacuated prior to its demolition. [...]

Recent polls have found a greater desire to visit the Temple Mount among religious Zionist Jews in Israel following the attack.
And by well everyone should pay a visit to the Mount after what that now deceased monster tried to do. That's how a message can be sent.

Chuck Hagel departs from defense department

The former Republican who blatantly accepted Obama's offer to be cabinet member is resigning from his post:
Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel is stepping down after criticism of the campaigns in Afghanistan and against the Islamic State. [...]

Mr Hagel served as senator from Nebraska and became a critic of US involvement in Iraq. He received two Purple Hearts for his service in the Vietnam War.

Sky News US correspondent Dominic Waghorn said: "He has had outstanding differences with the close-knit team of advisors around the President, he's never quite managed to break into that.

"And over the last few weeks and months there have been real points of disagreement between him and other officials in the Pentagon … on the issue of ISIS, on the issue of what to do in Syria in particular."
What disagreements, we can only wonder? He was against bringing down Saddam at the time of the Bush administration, so why he'd disagree with liberals whose policies are more to his liking is weird. He won't be missed as a defense secretary.

Milo Yiannopoulous screws up

I don't really care about this whole GamerGate campaign that's been going on for a few months now, because there's not many computer games I give a damn about today anyway. I will say that previously, UK resident Milo Yiannopoulos did make at least one good argument about why there's nothing unnatural about men loving to look at beautiful women. But now, with this dumbassery he's written about the Grand Theft Auto series, I think he's taken a nose dive. He says:
Business Insider's James Cook has an admirably even-handed report this morning with the details of the latest hoo-hah: you can now have first-person sex with prostitutes in Grand Theft Auto V, before—you guessed it—killing them to get your money back. In the past, your modesty was protected by a car door and the camera angle, but now players have full control over how they see the sex. And the murder afterwards.

I know what you're thinking. Isn't this all a bit sick? Isn't there something a bit... wrong with men and women who sit at home acting out violent fantasies? As I say, I used to think so too. But the research says there's absolutely no evidence that violence in games, or depictions of sexy women, make players any more violent, or misogynistic, in real life.

In fact, at least one university professor, Matthew Grizzard at the University at Buffalo, believes that video games make players more ethical, by increasing their sensitivity to, and awareness of, moral issues. "Violent video-game play may actually lead to increased moral sensitivity," says Grizzard. "This may, as it does in real life, provoke players to engage in voluntary behavior that benefits others."
As I said before, T&A imagery itself is okay; in fact, it's peanuts. But murder?

What, exactly, makes the notion of committing murder perfectly okay? I suppose Yiannopoulos is going to say that, because these are prostitutes getting obliterated, that justifies everything? Prostitution may be morally bankrupt, even unhealthy. But felonious though it may be, it's still far from the worst offense anyone could pull, and putting hookers into positions where they're tissue paper - to be used before getting tossed aside like yesterday's stale bread - is disgusting, and not my idea of a computer game worth playing.

And this is where I want to make a serious point: what if a video game came down the pike where players were given the option of murdering Jews, Blacks, Latinos, Asians, and on the religious side, even Christians? What if a game were made where an option was given for murdering gays and lesbians? In fact, what a game came along where players were invited to get their protagonists to utter nasty racial slurs? Point: even if it didn't inspire violent attitudes towards minority groups in real life, that's still very repulsive to design games that would appeal to bigots. And I think even Yiannopoulos knows that, if he came within even miles of apologizing for games like those, even pro-Gamergate supporters would eat him alive.

So what the hell's gotten into this dummy, acting as an apologist for a crude game that's otherwise alarmingly nasty to women? Why does he think he can get away with condoning a game like GTA that's offensive in the sense it offers the option to murder women and presume not a single person will be taken aback? Why is it wrong to legitimize racism but okay when the same is done with the female sex? What he's done is incredibly stupid, and could provide detractors with the perfect ammo to use against him. In fact, as if further proof were needed that video games can be made for all the wrong reasons, just a few months ago, Jihad Watch got hold of news that ISIS designed a video game for training jihadists to violence. And that can refute any argument Grizzard makes too. Didn't Yiannopoulos ever ponder that kind of filth's influence?

So I'm sorry to say, but Yiannopoulos has screwed up big time, and I believe he should apologize. Any Gamergate supporters who don't want people to think they harbor perversions should shun the GTA series and distance themselves from Yiannopoulos' lunkheaded defense of such a crappy game.

Call it "Hotel Sharia"

London's Bermondsey Square Hotel has been bought out by Muslims who've proceeded to impose sharia customs:
An exclusive hotel has banned alcohol and pork after being taken over by a Middle Eastern businessman who wants to run it ‘in accordance with Sharia law’.

The strict Islamic policy was imposed without warning this week at London’s Bermondsey Square Hotel – where the bar and grill was previously run by Masterchef judge Gregg Wallace.

Staff said the new rules were swiftly implemented on Tuesday on the orders of the new Muslim owner, forcing waiters to tell disgruntled guests that much of the menu was no longer available.

Diners were denied dishes that used only traces of alcohol – such as beer-battered fish, a pudding with ‘drunken cherries’ and rum ice cream. Drinkers were offered only non-alcoholic beer and elderflower cordial.

Forced to improvise, chefs are now trying to source chicken and beef sausages instead of pork varieties for breakfast and have replaced the popular hog roast with rabbit terrine.

The £220-a-night hotel is believed to be one of the first in the country to introduce the strict Muslim policy but staff say the changes have caused business to plummet, with many reservations cancelled.
Well it's good to know some customers have taken offense, and won't spend their money on a business that refuses to provide them with their favorite dishes, all in the name of a horrible mindset. This is one hotel no longer worth staying or eating at, so long as the Muslim owner continues to keep it.

Illegal Satmar yeshiva in Clinton Hill still running

It appears this illegally run yeshiva in NYC's Clinton Hill neighborhood is still being operated:
CLINTON HILL — A yeshiva is illegally using a factory building as a school and has racked up a litany of complaints about illegal construction, according to Department of Buildings records.

Neighbors have a laundry list of grievances about United Talmudical Academy, located at 25 Waverly Ave., which include the use of the street as a parking lot for school buses and students who harass women in nearby buildings and throw garbage out the window.

Now neighbors say the school is doing construction — including waterproofing the roof and working on the elevator shaft — without a permit at all hours of day and night.

Four complaints were made to the DOB on Nov. 6, prompting the department's emergency response team, which responds to complaints that are deemed hazardous and in need of immediate attention, to inspect the building.

One caller said that they were doing work on the building after 6 p.m. during the week and all day on Sunday, records show.

Inspectors issued a stop work order on the site the next day because of construction work being done in the building's elevator shaft without a permit, according to the DOB.

The agency found that workers were weatherproofing an abandoned shaft, had made illegal partitions and were using the building as a school illegally, the records show.

Two violations were also issued — for work without a permit that includes weatherproofing being done on the roof and occupancy contrary to use for a factory building being used as a school.

Over the next several days 12 more complaints were made to the department about continued construction at the building despite the DOB's order to stop.

A complaint made on Nov. 10 describes construction taking place at 2 a.m. on a Monday.

The most recent complaints were made on Nov. 14 for construction being done despite a stop work order. The results of that complaint were not immediately clear.

The building has three open violations for problems with the elevator and failure to maintain the structure, records show, and owes more than $5,000 in fines.
Shouldn't the construction workers be arrested for disturbing the peace and violating injunctions? I think that's exactly what should be done. Not only that, the building should be sealed off and equipment confiscated. In fact, maybe the neighbors for whom the school's been causing so much aggravation should take special steps of their own like play loud rock music to send a message.
