Miss America board members revolt against its current head

Almost missed this interesting news about the fallout Gretchen Carlson caused after she nixed the bikini contest at the Miss America pageant (via Breitbart):
Kate Shindle (now president of the Actors’ Equity Association), Laura Kaeppler Fleiss (who married “Bachelor” whiz Mike Fleiss), Jennifer Vaden Barth and Valerie Crooker Clemens posted a message to a private Facebook group claiming that Miss America’s account of their departures was inaccurate.

Barth and Clemens claimed, ‘Neither of us resigned voluntarily’ and that ‘pre-signed’ resignation letters they’d had as interim members were used.

Fleiss wrote, ‘I stepped away from a board that I felt had become incredibly toxic.’

Shindle added, ‘Many of us . . . ­expressed concern that we were expected to be a rubber-stamp board . . . I felt that our good-faith attempts to practice oversight were characterized as destructive, hostile and/or unappreciative.’
I hope this'll undermine the current directors, because they really screwed up, and if they don't like the swimsuit competitions, they should just leave and form their own pageant. And not cause more insults to the intellect.

Haredis complained about restrictions for entering Givat Shmuel parks after acting disorderly there

Residents of Bnei Brak won't admit they have some accountability here:
Inter-communal tensions have been stoked by the city of Givat Shmuel after it gave notice that it is restricting entry to two municipal parks to city residents alone from the middle of July to the middle of August.

The outcry over the decision came because many residents of the overwhelmingly haredi (ultra-Orthodox) city of Bnei Brak, adjacent to Givat Shmuel, take their children to the Givat Shmuel parks during the summer weeks due to overcrowding in Bnei Brak’s parks.

The two parks in question are the Ramon and Elkana parks, and entry to them will be restricted only to city residents between July 23 and August 16 from four o’clock in the afternoon to ten o’clock at night, when children’s activities will be staged.

Anyone seeking to enter at those times will need to present a city-residents cards which are now being distributed.

The decision was seen as discriminatory against the haredi community, leading to a firestorm of protest on Facebook where the Givat Shmuel Municipality posted about the new regulations, and eventually reaching the ears of haredi leaders who have vigorously protested the decision.

One man writing on the Facebook post described the policy as “antisemitism” while another described it as “racist.”

Others welcomed the move, with one man writing that “welcoming guests” requires the guests to behave accordingly.
And that's not exactly what happened in Modiin, where they littered and tried to dictate what everyone should do there. No doubt it's the same problem in Givat Shmuel, so it's understandable why they'd want to restrict access to the parks.

It's offensive any Haredis would even go so far as to exploit antisemitism cards for this topic, because the other guests are as much of Jewish race as they are, and using those kind of assertions only belittles the subject. It's Bnei Brak's city hall that has to take the responsibility to build more parks for their own kind, and at the same time, not turn them into gender-segregated insults.

Tommy Robinson should be freed and compensated

I wish I'd thought properly of addressing this before, the case of UK freedom fighter Tommy Robinson being imprisoned by Britain's communist authorities for covering the case of a Muslim rape gang's trial. Geert Wilders has spoken in Robinson's defense:
Geert Wilders, who leads the Freedom Party in the Netherlands, spoke to a ‘Free Tommy Robinson’ rally in London by video link after the British government prevented him from attending in the flesh.

The Dutchman, who delivered a speech in person at a June rally, placed second in the national elections last year, but as a prominent and strident critic of Islam has been living under a fatwa death warrant — and 24 hour police protection — for years.

However, the British authorities not only told their Dutch counterparts that they would not protect Wilders, but also refused to issue weapons permits to the Dutch diplomatic police, stopping him from making a second trip. [...]

Wilders also took the British Prime Minister to task over what he described as her failure to tackle the grooming gangs which Robinson was imprisoned for reporting, allegedly because a juror hearing the activist express or imply a view on a suspect’s guilt might hopelessly prejudice their trial.

“You did not act against the massive rape of young English girls. You allowed Tommy Robinson to be imprisoned. Your government betrayed our daughters. Your government betrayed our trust. Your government betrayed the people,” he accused.

“And worst of all, Mrs Theresa May, your government betrayed Tommy Robinson.

“My friends, I ask you: Is this how you want your country to be governed?” he demanded.

Tommy Robinson did not deserve jail. Tommy deserved a medal! He did what the media failed to do. He did what the British government should have done. He exposed child rapists. He fought for our children.

“But the establishment wants to silence him, because the establishment wants to silence all of us!”
Exactly. That's the biggest problem with France's to boot; their establishment also believes in destroying the country, and they too have to be taken to task for this failure. It goes without saying that any politician, past, present and future, who vehemently refuses to take responsibility, doesn't deserve to continue in politics, and should get out altogether. Wilders is right to make clear that May's nothing but an utter failure, and her pathetic approach to Brexit is just the beginning. If she wants to prove herself, she'll have to see to it Tommy Robinson is released, and even offer him a public apology, which I sadly figure she won't do, so she'd best resign.

Trump makes a valid point about the impact of Islam in Europe

Donald Trump, on his visit to Britain, made clear that all the mass migration into Europe, mainly by Muslims, is endangering the continent:
U.S. President Donald J. Trump tripled down on claims mass migration caused the Brexit vote, saying the impact on cities like London and Paris is “sad” and praising Hungary for its tough border policies.

President Trump had told The Sun newspaper that mass migration had “changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it’s never going to be what it was, and I don’t mean that in a positive way” ahead of a NATO summit in Belgium and a working visit to the United Kingdom, doubling and then tripling down on this assertion in Brussels and Chequers.

Despite the President having already told the press “I know it’s not politically correct to say that, but I’ll say and say it loud” at Chequers, establishment journalist and former Celebrity Apprentice contestant Piers Morgan tried to get him to row back on these comments once again in an interview on Air Force One after his “fantastic” meeting with Queen Elizabeth II.

“I said Brexit was going to happen for a specific reason: immigration. I think the people of the UK want to have who they want in their country, and I think what’s happening all over Europe is very sad,” the U.S. leader told Morgan.
He's utterly correct. It's absolutely terrible how western Europe's destroying itself like this, and about time their governments start acting responsibly and getting rid of Islamists from their countries. And if exile is what needs to be done when it comes to those who're citizens, then exile it should be. The same can be said for the USA, and not allow dangerous ideologues to exploit citizenship for the sake of remaining in the country and causing more potential damage. The point's been made clear by Trump, and the governments of Europe had better start taking note.

PLO collaborator Ezra Nawi will now face trial

The far-left activist who betrayed Arabs to the PLO for selling land to Jews will stand trial for his crimes:
Prosecutors filed an indictment Sunday against Israeli left-wing activist Ezra Nawi on charges of passing information to the Palestinian Authority security service about Palestinians who planned to sell West Bank land to Israeli Jews, thereby endangering the sellers’ lives.

The indictment, filed by state prosecutors at the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court, charges Nawi with violating a law that forbids Israeli citizens from working for the Palestinian Authority’s security branches.

The trial will make Nawi the first Jew to be tried for aiding the Palestinian Authority — a crime under a clause from the 1995 Oslo Accords that subsequently entered Israeli penal law, with a sentence of up to five years in prison.
Just five? That's not good enough. He deserves far more than that, after imperiling so many to being murdered. Let's also note that he was earlier convicted for child rape, and even then received a very minor sentence. This time, he has to be sentenced for a much longer duration so he can't cause trouble again, because it's clear this is a man who's thrown away his life for the sake of evil.

Hamas fires a whole barrage of rockets

This time at least 3 people were injured because nothing's been done to go in by land and prevent it:
More than 174 rockets and mortar shells were fired at southern Israel from inside Gaza, according to a Times of Israel report.

Although most of the rockets and mortars landed in open areas, Israeli officials reported that some exploded inside Israeli towns, causing damage to buildings.

Three family members were injured when a mortar fired from Gaza hit a house in the town of Sderot at around 6:30pm Saturday evening.

A spokesman for the Magen David Adom Ambulance Service said that three people suffered shrapnel injuries of varying degrees.

A 50-year-old man suffered moderate wounds after being hit in the chest. A 20-year-old woman sustained light-to-moderate injuries to her lower limbs, and a 14-year-old girl suffered facial wounds.
The IDF may have performed air strikes in retaliation, but again, they're being as effective as the US army was when they refused to enter northern Vietnam, where the Viet Cong's main forces were located, and that's how that war kept on for so long.

French court reneges on judgement of Sarah Halimi's murderer

The court in charge of the case of the Malian Muslim who murdered Sarah Halimi is once again resorting to the excuse of "mental illness":
An Islamist migrant who police allege savagely murdered a 65-year-old Jewish woman in Paris is considered unfit to stand trial, according to a psychiatric evaluation. [...]

In January this year, Traore was determined to be fit to stand trial. He was placed in a psychiatric hospital for weeks after his arrest despite having no history of mental illness.

But a judge requested a second series of tests, which determined that the Malian immigrant was not able to stand trial, 20 Minutes reported on Wednesday.

“We do not understand the determination and procrastination that consistently seeks to turn this killer into a demented person, when he is a murderer whose presumed detention doesn’t even hide his hateful anti-Semitism,” Francis Kalifat of the Jewish umbrella group CRIF said after the decision was made not to proceed to trial.

The official response to the murder from the government, prosecutors, and the media has caused much anger and hurt amongst Parisian Jews.
I think there's reason to go to demonstrate again, and have the Israeli/USA governments make a firm call for putting the proper judgement back on track again. This shows just how corrupt the judicial system - and the press - in France is, even going out of their way to let rapists off the hook. And they're going to pay for it very heavily sooner or later.

Update: here's more on Israel Hayom:
The new evaluation reinforces the perception among the French Jewish community that authorities are trying to make this case go away. The community is also outraged that it took more than four months before the case was classified as a hate crime and has criticized the little media coverage it received.

[...] Traore has a criminal record and served time in prison over various incidents involving drugs, break-ins and violence. According to Halimi's daughter, he would occasionally call Halimi "a dirty Jew." Eyewitnesses also said that on the night of the murder, first responders did not try to stop him despite being dispatched to scene before he killed her.
Those authorities who refused to take any action are just as guilty as the Islamofascist himself.

Update 2: there's more on JNS, including news that historian Georges Bensoussan, who was wrongly tried for "islamophobia" has been dismissed from a job, apparently because the Jewish leadership, which I suspect has to shoulder some of the blame, threw him under the bus. This is just why the whole crisis was able to happen.

Theresa May betrays Brexiteers

The British prime minister's let everyone down again by screwing up the firm basis the pro-Brexit crowd wants, and it's a good thing Donald Trump's willing to speak on their behalf:
President Donald J Trump appeared to criticise Prime Minister Theresa May’s ultra-soft ‘Brexit’ plan ahead of his UK visit, suggesting it is not what the British people voted for.

“I’ve been reading a lot about Brexit over the last couple of days, and it seems to be turning a little bit differently, where they’re getting at least partially involved back with the European Union,” he observed.

Theresa May, who campaigned to Remain in the European Union during the country’s 2016 referendum, recently revealed the offer she intends to put to the bloc, which includes an agreement to accept a “common rulebook” written by Brussels and adjudicated by the EU court, as well as commitments to collect customs duties on the EU’s behalf, adopt equivalent regulations on state aid, social policy, etc., and more.

The move has plunged the Prime Minister’s minority administration into what President Trump has himself described as “turmoil”, with Secretary of State for Brexit David Davis and Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary Boris Johnson both resigning in protest at the deal, which in their view will not restore British sovereignty in a meaningful way.
The only thing worse is the already skyrocketing crime rates in Britain, mainly caused by Islamofascists, but this is another serious error May's committed, and if this leads to her resignation, it'll be for the best. Trump's also quite right to level some criticism at her for disrespecting the British electorate.

Even London's Westminster borough is dangerous

Christopher Meyer, the former UK ambassador to the USA, was horrifyingly assaulted at a train station in Westminster:
Former British ambassador to the U.S. Sir Christopher Meyer was brutally beaten in one of London’s major railway stations.

Sir Christopher, 74, was taking the London Underground home when he was attacked on Wednesday afternoon by two youths at Victoria Station, Westminster, who left him with injuries to his left eye, nose, and lip, reports The Times.

His wife, Baroness Meyer, said that her husband was taken to St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, and had been beaten so badly he could not remember the attack.

“He looks terrible. His left eye is like a golf ball and bleeding, the nose looks like it could be broken,” Baroness Meyer told the newspaper.
It's repulsive, and the incident proves above all that even the west side of London is as dangerous as the east. All thanks to the many machinations Britain's past governments took to allow this terrible situation to happen.

Ireland's government is embracing BDS mentality

Ireland's giving themselves a bad name again by drafting a law to forbid products from over the alleged green line in Israel:
The passage of a bill in the Irish parliament next week prohibiting “the import and sales of goods, services and natural resources” from the settlements would be “catastrophic” for Israeli-Irish ties, senior sources in Jerusalem said on Wednesday.

Israel is working quietly and behind the scenes to try to thwart the passage of the legislation, The Jerusalem Post has learned. The bill will go to the Irish senate next week.

While passage of the measure would not lead to a rupture in Irish-Israel ties, it could strengthen voices inside the Foreign Ministry that always suggest Dublin whenever lists are drawn up of consulates and embassies abroad that should be closed because of budgetary constraints.

Israel’s embassy issued a statement saying that the bill that would make it a crime punishable by prison time to import anything from the settlements, which also includes east Jerusalem, is “immoral.”
The whole notion alone that you could be imprisoned over a thoughtcrime is what really makes their steps repellent. Avigdor Liberman's calling for closing the Israeli embassy in Ireland:
The Irish Senate voted to approve a proposal to criminalize doing business with Jews in Judea, Samaria, parts of Jerusalem and the Golan Heights — areas that came under Israel’s control after the 1967 Six Day War.

“There is no point in summoning the Irish ambassador to Israel to be reprimanded,” Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman tweeted.

“With Israel’s enemies there is nothing to discuss. Israel should close immediately its embassy in Dublin,” Liberman tweeted. “We won’t turn the other cheek to a country which boycotts us.”
If this has to be done, then I guess it'll be inevitable, if that's what it takes to make clear such thinking is unacceptable. Putting people in prison over such petty matters is horrific and reprehensible, and Ireland's doing a horrible disfavor to their reputation by going this route.

As many as 400,000 illegal immigrants living in Seine Saint-Denis

Giulio Meotti points to how France has become a ticking time bomb with tons of illegal immigrants in the Seine Saint-Denis district near Paris:
France is a time bomb. Read what happens in a large area of ​​Paris, Seine-Saint-Denis, with its 1.6 million inhabitants. Not only that about 40 percent of its residents are of the Islamic faith. Not only that 28 percent are on the verge of poverty.

According to a new parliamentary report just released and revealed by Le Figaro, between 8 and 20 percent of its inhabitants are illegal immigrants (they could be up to 400,000). The report details what the conservative newspaper Le Figaro describes as “the incredible deterioration of social, economic and security conditions” in the area. An estimated 550 migrants arrive in Paris each week.
There's more on this serious crisis here:
There could be as many as 400,000 illegal immigrants living in Seine-Saint-Denis according to a report from the French parliament.

The report claims that between eight and 20 percent of the population of Paris’s troubled northern suburb may be constituted by illegal immigants and that many live on the streets because of the strain the sheer number has put on social services, Le Figaro reports.

According to the report, the suburbs suffer a poverty rate twice as high as Paris at 28 percent and an unemployment rate three percentage points higher than the city to the south.

The report was authored by Rodrigue Koukouendo, a member of President Emmanuel Macron’s Le Republique En Marche (LREM) party and François Cornut-Gentille of the conservative Republicans, with both authors noting that social services and police in the area were struggling due to the number of illegals.

The two MPs suggested a reform of the way the government collects statistical data to help the problem writing: “To identify urban phenomena of ghettoisation, to explain educational difficulties, to combat discrimination and to adapt the resources of the police and the judiciary to a specific population, the question of establishing so-called ethnic statistics is raised.”

Currently, France does not collect the ethnic or religious data on individuals in birth, criminal, or census statistics joining other European countries like Sweden which has a similar policy.
Again, this has long become one of their biggest problems - they won't allow censuses because of WW2 becoming a burden of guilt that led to the decision. However, at this point, I think it's already long moot, and perfectly okay to repeal such a law in order to defend the country. In fact, the Jewish community should be the first and foremost to demand the repeal of anti-census laws. They could be tremendous help if they'd call for doing that.
