Michael Bell wrote in The Globe and Mail that Israel's prime minister is in a strong position on middle eastern topics. But he slips when brings up the following:
Despite persistent criticism by U.S. administrations, particularly that of President Barack Obama, the Israeli-U.S. relationship has not been weakened. The situation would be more favourable for Mr. Netanyahu with Hillary Clinton. Earlier this month, an agreement was signed between the Obama administration and Israel committing the United States to delivering $38-billion (U.S.) in military aid. This is reinforced by far-reaching intelligence and security co-operation. It is buttressed by tax-deductible donations from wealthy Americans and well-endowed foundations aimed at expanding the Israeli presence in the West Bank.
Oh for heaven's sake. He's falling back on the laughable notion that only a leftist can prove a favorable relation with Israel. That's not so at all, and let's not forget that Hillary Clinton's approach to the Benghazi issue was disastrous. She also led a favorable relationship with Arafat and his wife. So why should we expect her to be any better to Israel?

I think Bell's got to wake up and smell the coffee.


Trump is wisely offering his support for internet freedom, and opposition to the Obama administration's intention to give it away and potentially damage everything:
Donald Trump praised congressional Republicans’ efforts on Wednesday. “Donald J. Trump is committed to preserving internet freedom for the American people and citizens all over the world,” his campaign said in an official statement.

“The U.S. should not turn control of the internet over to the United Nations and the international community. President Obama intends to do so on his own authority – just 10 days from now, on Oct. 1, unless Congress acts quickly to stop him,” the statement continued.

South Dakota Sen. John Thune told reporters Wednesday that he is “pretty confident” that language preventing the transition of IANA oversight will be included in the text of the spending bill.
I sure hope so, and that justice can be done.

And they're probably fine with that. The UK Express (via Pamela Geller) says:
In February Express.co.uk reported the Scandinavian country has seen a huge surge in crime since the start of the migrants crisis in Europe with a rise in sex assaults, drug dealing and children carrying weapons.

The force’s increased lack of control in the country was revealed in a report by Sweden’s National Criminal Investigation Service, where attacks on officers were detailed, including police cars being stoned by masked groups.

At the time around 50 areas were put on a “blacklist” which are then divided into three categories from “risk areas” to “seriously vulnerable”.

The figure has now been increased to 55 as the Swedish police force are facing a crisis, with three officers handing in their notice every day.

It is estimated that 80 per cent of the police officers are also considering changing professions, due to lack of funding and support to tackle the increasing levels of crime.

Speaking to NRK, police officer Peter Larsson said: “We have a major crisis. Many colleagues are choosing to quit.

“We are not investigating crimes, we don’t have time to cover the call-outs we are tasked with.

“A drastically worsened working environment means many colleagues are now looking for other work.”

A regular shift for the Swedish force includes being attacked by thugs who throw stones at the officers and their patrol cars, vehicles being set ablaze, and in some cases personal injuries.

A new report released last week revealed the situation in the country has worsened since the National Criminal Investigation Service’s document emerged in February.

A report entitled ‘A national overview of criminal networks with major impact in the local community’ said it was common place for unattended police cars to be attacked, for police officers to be attacked and to be exposed to threats.

It added drug and gang violence are still flourishing in the no-go zones

Malmö in south Sweden was one of the cities which was flagged as a particularly hit area in the liberal country.
But don't expect Sweden to assign its own military to deal with any of this. Just recently, a Swedish government charity organization said that Swedes should integrate with the invaders. Here's the Breitbart report (also via Pamela Geller):
“It’s time to realise the new Swedes will claim their space” an ad insists, describing the Nordic nation as a “safe space” for migrants and concluding: “There is no way back. Sweden will never be like it was.”

The campaign is called “The New Country” (hashtag #detnyalandet) with a website appearing alongside the film, arguing that residents should adopt foreign “cultures” and “languages”, rather than expect new arrivals to become Swedish.
No doubt they also want Swedes to convert to Islam. If the Nazis had won WW2, I wouldn't be surprised if they'd introduce Islam into Europe at the time. Nor would I be shocked if any Nazis had converted to Islam during WW2. As for Sweden, it's clear they're plummeting into a civil war already as the invaders turn the place into a hellhole.

Utah senator Mike Lee wrote on Daily Signal why it's bad to risk letting totalitarian regimes get hold of the internet:
Just five years after ICANN was created, the United Nations established a Working Group on Internet Governance “to investigate and make proposals for action … on the governance of Internet.” And in 2012 at the World Conference on International Telecommunications, several authoritarian regimes—including Russia, China, and Saudi Arabia—called for the “sovereign right” of governments to “establish and implement public policy, including international policy, on matters of Internet governance.”
There's every chance they still have that goal in mind, so letting them get hold of the web would only be bad news, and that's why a transfer should be opposed. Also, as noted here:
ICANN is currently involved in litigation over alleged improper interference from governments who objected to how the organization awarded the .africa domain name. And the organization was recently admonished by an independent review panel for making decisions that were “cavalier” and “simply not credible” in relation to an application for domain names.
As discovered earlier, ICANN's also got shady people involved, one more reason why they're not fit yet to be a steward on their own. In fact, with that record, there's valid grounds not to let them manage the web, but rather, to assign another business, non-profit or otherwise, to handle things.

One of the commenters also said:
I would suggest that IF our LIAR-in-CHIEF gets HIS WAY and gives up the TOTAL CONTROL of the internet to the U.N., then the people of America should start our OWN and separate internet inside America and leave the rest of the world out of OUR internet until we get a FREE & OPEN internet back from the U.N. so we can have what we have NOW, if you could call what we have now, an entirely free & open without our goverment controlling even partially what we see & hear over our portion of the internet.
This reflects what I was thinking pretty well. There could be a separate internet corporation established, providing needed competition for domain development and such. There's no need to let one company have a monopoly on internet development. Whatever the outcome of the fight to protect the web as it stands now, I think the competition should be started now, because it could have benefits in the future.


And if she's that radicalized, then it's clear she's not fit to mother them regardless. From the Philadelphia Daily News:
A North Philadelphia mother of two admitted Tuesday that she planned to abandon her children and travel to Syria to pursue "martyrdom operations" with an ISIS fighter she married over the internet.

Keonna Thomas, 32, pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization during a brief hearing in federal court. She acknowledged her plans were derailed last year only when federal agents raided her home the day she was scheduled to leave the country.

"I believe that I'm guilty of this charge," said Thomas, dressed in a head scarf and green prison jumpsuit, when asked by U.S. District Judge Michael Baylson why she was changing her plea.

Federal authorities had couched the case as the latest in a string of prosecutions to combat what they describe as a "more decentralized, more diffuse, more complicated" homegrown terror threat from U.S. citizens radicalized over the internet.
Now is that possible to marry somebody over the internet and Skype? Only Islamofascists could possibly see that as valid.

Note how the woman also wears a hijab, and when she does that even in prison, it's clear she's acting in contempt of the society she's isolating herself from. Her children deserve far better, and it's terrible she's causing such embarrassment.

Ahmed Rahami, the bomb maker arrested for planting the bombs in New Jersey and New York, was rather unsurprisingly negative about the country he lived in, and even homophobic (hat tip: Hot Air):
The man who police nabbed and shot Monday after a day-long dragnet in connection with a series of terror attacks in and around New York was a bad father who disliked America, hated gays and took long trips to his homeland of Afghanistan, according to the mother of his young daughter.

Maria, whose full name is being withheld by FoxNews.com, said her high school sweetheart, Ahmad Khan Rahami, didn’t pay child support and often railed against American culture. The 26-year-old, who spoke after her grandmother called her for a reporter who produced his press credential and identified himself at the grandmother’s home in Elizabeth, said she had not seen Rahami in two years.

"He would speak often of Western culture and how it was different back home,” she said. “How there weren't homosexuals in Afghanistan.

"He seemed standoffish to American culture, but I never thought he would cross the line," she added.
Well obviously he was, and did. If the wife accepted his religion, then she's done something very stupid, and shouldn't have underestimated his capabilities. This should serve as a crucial lesson why not to marry an Islamist unless they're willing to abandon the Religion of Peace. Not doing only ensures worry will be needed.

The Washington Free Beacon reveals that ICANN has been plagued by corruption already, even before the Obama administration set out to transfer oversight to foreign sources who could prove to be a bad lot:
The international organization the Obama administration is pushing to hand control over the internet to has provided official accreditation to people who have transferred technology to Iran, worked with North Korea, and ordered “murders-for-hire,” according to congressional testimony that raises questions about the organization’s practices.

Obama administration efforts to hand over control of America’s Internet to The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN, an international coalition of 162 countries and entities, have sparked outrage on Capitol Hill, where critics allege the move would stifle the free flow of information.

Experts familiar with ICANN’s structure testified before Congress on Wednesday that the organization has failed to act in a transparent and accountable fashion, raising questions about how it would operate free from U.S. government oversight.

On multiple occasions, ICANN has provided official accreditation to people operating as an “arm of a criminal network,” including one person who pled guilty to transferring U.S. technology to Iran, according to testimony by John Horton, president and CEO of LegitScript, which works with international governments.

ICANN continues to provide legitimacy to these organizations despite mounting evidence they have engaged in illegal activity, according to Horton, who explained that these criminal sites “remain online because ICANN green-lighted the registrar’s refusal to investigate or take action.”

One of these outfits is ABSystems, a “rogue internet pharmacy network” that provided cover to its founder, Paul Le Roux, who has been dubbed the “most successful criminal mastermind you’ve never heard of.”

“In December 2013, Paul Le Roux pleaded guilty to crimes involving North Korean methamphetamine trafficking, the transfer of US technology to Iran, and several murders-for-hire,” according to Horton’s testimony, which was offered to the Senate Judiciary Committee. “Mr. Le Roux, a Zimbabwean national … remains in US custody, pending sentencing.”

Le Roux financed his illegal endeavors “by operating as an ICANN-accredited domain name registrar, creating a rogue internet pharmacy network through his ability to register domain names unimpeded,” according to Horton.
Gee whiz. It's already clear ICANN's plagued by some of the worst people around if they allowed men like that to ply their trade without opposition. And it's just one more reason why I think separate internet management agencies should be established even if ICANN doesn't go under bad foreign controls. These separate companies might have to charge more money for services but that could ensure better trustworthiness.

This is proof beyond a doubt that ICANN cannot be entrusted to foreigners who could serve shady interests. And who knows what Iran's been doing with that technology Le Roux gave them?


The French government wants to distribute migrants from the Calais camp to other parts of France, which has various cities rightly angry, and opposed to the plan:
The group of leaders have rallied against the plan to dismantle the Calais migrant camp amid growing concerns the French government want to "secretly" replace the squalid makeshift camp with 'mini-Jungles' all over France.

Dozens of refugee camps will be set up across the country after the French Interior Minister insisted that he will shut down the notorious Jungle camp, holding at least 9,000 migrants.

A leaked government report announced plans to send 12,000 migrants throughout France as the solution to clear out Calais.
All that'll do is set up the same problem elsewhere across the country, and they know it. All they're doing is hinting they're not sorry about the terrorist attacks and other acts of violence already caused by the Islamofascists in the country.
The plan will see 12,000 migrants, evacuated from Calais and Paris, moved all across France.

The only region exempt from the plan is Corsica, following high-profile attacks on migrants on the island.

Robert Menard, the far-right mayor of the town of Beziers, warned that he does not want his city to be turned into "a small Calais".

He rejected the government's "offer to distribute the problem across France".

He said: "I do not want to grapple with this problem because I have already enough migrants and don't need to take in more of them.

"Earlier I opposed the arrival of Syrian refugees in Beziers, and now I do not want Calais migrants to come to my city which is poor enough and has other problems to deal with."

The controversial mayor said that the migrants already in the city added to crime and terrorism, after they "received some number of jihadists who proved to be terrorists".
And that's why no sane community should be forced to take them in. Hollande's government is just continuing to be deceptive and contemptible of the public they've harmed with their dhimmmitude. The migrants should be thrown out of the country, and if they wanted to, I think they could do that.
