That's why you can't just simply "accept" Islamization

Russia Today interviewed a French writer about a new book called "Partition", detailing how politicians practically accepted Islamofascism into the country, and the possibility that in the next decade, it'll become a new Lebanon:
In just a few years, Islamic suburbs of Paris will obey their own set of rules, they will have their own laws, their own principles, maybe even their own police. It is already the case, Alexandre Mendel, author of the book ‘Partition’ told RT.

Europe has been facing a large number of migrants coming from the war-torn countries in Africa and the Middle East. Today many are concerned about the Islamization of Europe and the failure of Muslims assimilating into their new countries.

RT met with a writer Alexandre Mendel, whose new book “Partition” is devoted to the Muslims' failure to integrate in France, and discussed the current situation in that country.

RT: Please start by describing for our readers your book.

Alexandre Mendel: My last book, 'Jihadist France,' was only about the French terrorists. ‘Partition’ is mainly about Islamization of France, about what’s going on in France, in schools, hospitals, at work, in sports clubs, etc. I am not talking this time about terrorism itself, but about the way France decided whether the French government - like it or not – collaborated and accepted some kind of arrangements with Islam. This is the main topic of the book. [...]

RT: What should be done to integrate people into society? Is it only a Muslim thing, or other groups, as well?

AM: In my book, I say that there is no solution, because it is too late; there won’t be any solution. You can’t send them back to their country - they are French - the French cannot send them back. What France will become in the next 10 or 20 years will be a kind of new Lebanon in some places in France.

For example, take some suburbs in Paris: they will have their own set of rules, they will have their own laws, their own principals, maybe even their own police. It is already the case. The fact that in France right now in many places France has no control in these areas. We accepted it already and we won’t fight back to get these suburbs back to France. It is already done – we already lost the war against them.

So the rich people in France will be in the fancy neighborhoods of Paris, far from the problems, and then the poor people will have to deal with Islamism on a daily base. This is the way we accepted that already.
Well that's why, no matter what anybody thinks, you cannot stand idly by and accept that barbarians are literally "citizens" in every way, shape and form and cannot be exiled for their evils. Geert Wilders made the point that we can't just simply accept and that's it; societies have to be de-islamized to make them safer again.

Jewish girl violently assaulted by Muslims at French school

One of the few Jewish students going to a public school where much of the students are Muslim fell victim to antisemitic violence (Hat tip: Pamela Geller):
A 10-year-old girl was assaulted by her classmates and the home of a family was daubed with racist graffiti in two Paris-area incidents deemed antisemitic.

The alleged assault was reported to France’s ministry of education by the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Antisemitism, or BNVCA, the watchdog group wrote in a statement on its website Tuesday. Separately, the same group reported that unidentified individuals on Wednesday wrote antisemitic slogans on the side of a home belonging to Jewish family in the eastern suburb of Noisy le Grand.

The mother of the girl who allegedly was assaulted, identified by BNVCA only as Ness, complained to police recently that a group of classmates of her daughter in the public school which she attends in Paris’ 18th district beat her on multiple occasions, often occurring day after day, only because she is Jewish. After one beating, Ness was brought to hospital with a visible contusion to her stomach and ribcage, the report said, requiring 10 days of recovery.

The child will be transferred to a different school, BNVCA wrote.
It's noted that some politicians are encouraging this sadism as well, by associating with jihadist sympathisers. Undoutably they are, and Jacques Chirac was one most recent politician in history who did, as did also Francois Hollande.

President Trump Pardons Sheriff Joe, Hero Who Cracked Down on Illegal Immigration

I met Sheriff Joe in Phoenix, Arizona, in 2010. Everybody loves Sheriff Joe. The only people who don't are the treasonous racist MSM fifth columnists out to destroy our great country!

Here's the headline at NYT, via Memeorandum, "Trump Pardons Joe Arpaio, Who Became Face of Crackdown on Illegal Immigration."

I don't care what these leftist media hacks say. Sheriff Joe's a freakin' patriot.

Terrorist shot dead in Spain

One of the terrorists who plotted the van ramming attack in Barcelona was located by Spanish police and sent to hell where he belongs:
Spanish police on Monday shot dead Younes Abouyaaqoub, the suspected driver of a van that mowed down pedestrians in Barcelona, in a dramatic end to a massive manhunt for the Moroccan national who was wearing a fake suicide belt when he was killed.

"We confirm the death of Younes Abouyaaqoub shot in Subirats," police in Catalonia tweeted.

The Moroccan was the last remaining member of a 12-man cell suspected of plotting last week's deadly vehicle rampages in Barcelona and the seaside resort of Cambrils that were claimed by the Islamic State organisation (IS) -- its first in Spain.

Four men have been detained, while the others have been killed, either by police or in an explosion believed to have been accidentally detonated by the suspects themselves in their bomb factory in the seaside town of Alcanar.

Among those killed in the explosion was a Moroccan imam at the heart of the cell, Abdelbaki Es Satty, Catalan police chief Josep Lluis Trapero confirmed Monday.
Unfortunately, if they continue to allow Islamists into Europe, there'll still be many more to come. So they're going to have to start doing some serious thinking about their futures.

What could be the exact politics of Tim Seeley's "Brilliant Trash"?

The comics writer Tim Seeley's been interviewed by the Hollywood Reporter (via Science Fiction) about a bizarre comic he's written up called "Brilliant Trash", which features what appears to be a Muslim teen girl destroying Jerusalem, as seen in the panel posted on the side. This is what the trade paper says this about:
Brilliant Trash, co-created with artist Priscilla Petraites, begins with the destruction of Jerusalem at the hands of a superhuman teenage girl, which introduces a near-future dystopia in which anyone can be a superhero — but only one journalist knows how pricey a proposition that really is. Heat Vision talked briefly with Seeley about the new series.
From the looks of things, it would seem as though this story is about an Islamofascist who declared jihad on the historical Jewish city. The question, undoubtably, is whether it's depicted as an abominable, inhumane act. I should hope so. But according to the following statements from Seeley, this book is supposed to be satire:
The world of the series feels very much like it's prime satire, taking elements of today and ramping them up to 11: Journalists that no one believes! Fractured media that tells everyone what they want to hear! Conspiracy theories where corporations keep information from the people! Does this come from a love of satire, or a sense of "I have to write this now before reality eclipses me in a couple of days"?


It's both! But my favorite sci-fi has always been the material that takes current trends to a seemingly ridiculous satirical end, because those are the things that end up being accurate. We laughed at the ads in Robocop, but they mostly came true. As a person, I have to fight myself not to make fun of everything — but Brilliant Trash allows me to do it, and be absolutely savage about it.

As the solicitation for the first issue reveals, you're literally wiping Jerusalem off the face of the earth at the very start of this series. As far as opening gambits go, there's attention-grabbing and then there's attention-grabbing. Are you anticipating a lot of feedback on that particular plot point?

Ha, I never anticipate feedback, because I never know what's going to really sink in with readers. But there's very much a reasoning behind why Lady LastWord [the character responsible for the destruction of Jerusalem] does this, and we'll see that motivation unfold over the course of the first five issues.
I'm not sure what to make of a tale that's built on satire, considering the book involves a serious issue like religiously motivated assault and annihilation. After all, there's nothing funny in real life about jihadists who commit murder in high numbers. Yet we're living in an age when the industry has almost entirely censored the subject of fighting against Islamic terrorism, and if they do address it, they take blame-the-victim paths, as seen in the unreadable Marvel Knights volume of Captain America in the early 2000s. If Seeley's not playing his cards right, then he's only served up another letdown. Serious issues aren't something you should just present as satire.

Since we're on the subject of Seeley, here's a few tweets he wrote in the past week, giving an idea of where he stands on the political map, mostly to the left:


I'm guessing they're RINOs, right? That is, Republicans In Name Only. Among those he retweeted include Mitt Romney and John McCain, the latter who's opposed repairing the damage wrought by Obamacare. I can't say I'm shocked when some mega-leftie considers faux-conservatives the reliable bunch, but not those who actually care about the public's future.

Well my grandpa, who died in 1972, about 2 years before I was born, also fought in the second World War. And labels had nothing to do with it, just altruism, far more than Franklin Delano Roosevelt ever showed. So this is Seeley's way of saying he apparently buys into the notion that Antifa's really a heroic, patriotic movement, when in reality, they're as repellent as the white supremacists who littered up Charlottesville. Even some hardcore leftists admit Antifa's basically the same as those they're "protesting".

Well at least he's thanking Russia's government for wisely opposing any associations with supremacist news sources, where all their commentary is loathsome as can be. However, he also retweeted this post from Snopes, apparently claiming it's not true what Trump said about Gen. Pershing's war on Islam, hinting he's still part of the anti-Trump crowd. And I think he should ponder that Snopes, in reality, is one of the most dishonest leftist websites around. Definitely not a site I'd consider trustworthy.

Seeley may not be the worst liberal out there in the comics medium, but he may not be the best informed either. And based on what the news is telling about his new comics story, he may not have done a very good job addressing a serious topic. In that case, what would be so "brilliant" about the trash he conceived?

Anthony Scaramucci Unloads (VIDEO)

Here, "Anthony Scaramucci Unloads on Reince Priebus in Profanity-Laced Interview at the New Yorker":



So, a little while ago, I go to turn on the Diamondbacks at Cardinals on the MLB channel, and I get an error message saying the broadcast isn't available in my area (which is weird, since I live nowhere near St. Louis and the game wouldn't normally be blacked out). Okay, fine. It's happened before. I then go to click out of the channel and CNN pops up. My wife must have been watching it earlier, because I haven't watched CNN in months. It's four-o'clock and Erin Burnett's coming on with breaking news about Anthony Scaramucci. So I watched for a while. Then I click around the dial a little more and come back a few minutes later and she's got neocon never-Trumper Bill Kristol on. He's ranting about how unprecedented is this White House power struggle, even going so far as to suggest that Scaramucci's mentally unstable and should be denied an FBI security clearance. Then I flip over to Fox News. Martha MacCallum's got Dana Perino on. She argues that this kind of White House battle can only be decided by the president ultimately. Martha goes to a commercial and I flipped the off button.

At issue is this interview with Ryan Lizza, at the New Yorker, "Anthony Scaramucci Called Me to Unload About White House Leakers, Reince Priebus, and Steve Bannon" (via Memeorandum):
On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me.

“Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information. He responded by threatening to fire the entire White House communications staff. “What I’m going to do is, I will eliminate everyone in the comms team and we’ll start over,” he said. I laughed, not sure if he really believed that such a threat would convince a journalist to reveal a source. He continued to press me and complain about the staff he’s inherited in his new job. “I ask these guys not to leak anything and they can’t help themselves,” he said. “You’re an American citizen, this is a major catastrophe for the American country. So I’m asking you as an American patriot to give me a sense of who leaked it.”

In Scaramucci’s view, the fact that word of the dinner had reached a reporter was evidence that his rivals in the West Wing, particularly Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff, were plotting against him. While they have publicly maintained that there is no bad blood between them, Scaramucci and Priebus have been feuding for months. After the election, Trump asked Scaramucci to join his Administration, and Scaramucci sold his company, SkyBridge Capital, in anticipation of taking on a senior role. But Priebus didn’t want him in the White House, and successfully blocked him for being appointed to a job until last week, when Trump offered him the communications job over Priebus’s vehement objections. In response to Scaramucci’s appointment, Sean Spicer, an ally of Priebus’s, resigned his position as press secretary. And in an additional slight to Priebus, the White House’s official announcement of Scaramucci’s hiring noted that he would report directly to the President, rather than to the chief of staff.

Scaramucci’s first public appearance as communications director was a slick and conciliatory performance at the lectern in the White House briefing room last Friday. He suggested it was time for the White House to turn a page. But since then, he has become obsessed with leaks and threatened to fire staffers if he discovers that they have given unauthorized information to reporters. Michael Short, a White House press aide considered close to Priebus, resigned on Tuesday after Scaramucci publicly spoke about firing him. Meanwhile, several damaging stories about Scaramucci have appeared in the press, and he blamed Priebus for most of them. Now, he wanted to know whom I had been talking to about his dinner with the President. Scaramucci, who initiated the call, did not ask for the conversation to be off the record or on background...
More.

At one point Scaramucci calls Priebus a "fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac..." And of course, this has all the chattering-leftist mouths agape across the establishment. Keep in mind that leftists will play up any Oval Office flame-war to the hilt. If this is seen as weakening the effectiveness of the administration, all the better. And they're going to play it all the more, because Scaramucci's been kicking ass. He's been taking down the fake news memes on the cable broadcasts and forwarding an extremely on-point and effective message for the president. Leftist will exploit any angle to take him down, and by extension take down his boss, President Trump.

More at Memeorandum.

Everything is high drama. Scarmucci's high drama, but he's pissed at how the president's been getting reamed and he's serious about cleaning house. He's serious about take the battle to the fake news outlets. That's what leftists hate. Let's see how this goes over the next few days, because if Scaramucci starts winning some victories, leftists'll be even more freaked out. Knives are sharpening at this minute as it is.

MARINE LE PEN WINS 1ST PARLIAMENTARY ELECTION

She may have lost the presidential election, but for the first time, she's won a seat in France's National Assembly, and the Front National itself got nearly 10 percent of the vote:
Far-right leader Marine Le Pen on Sunday won a seat in the French parliament, but her anti-EU National Front (FN) party faced disappointment, winning only four to eight seats, polls and party figures said. The number of lawmakers, if confirmed, would be too small to form a parliamentary group which would give the FN a role in setting the agenda and win positions on committees.

Le Pen, 48, who lost her presidential bid to centrist Emmanuel Macron, triumphed in her northern fiefdom of Henin-Beaumont, a depressed former mining town, the town’s FN mayor Steeve Briois said.
Oh, I wouldn't be too sure the results wouldn't be enough to ensure she'll have some influence. After all, she's a beginner in politics, and this is her first actual election to parliament. Where she failed at presidency, she did succeed in making her way to parliament.

Though Emmanuel Macron's party won a huge amount of seats, it didn't get the vast majority the pollsters/media were predicting, and the French Republicains party got more than expected on their part. There's more about the election here.

In other good news, Meyer Habib was reelected to the Assembly. I'm hoping all of the relevant sources will do their best to make themselves heard on the case of Islamofascism devouring the country now, because that should be the most serious issue facing us all now.

50 YEARS SINCE JERUSALEM WAS REGAINED

Yesterday was Jerusalem Day, and the Jerusalem Post has a pictorial article about the 50th year since the city was freed from the clutches of Jordan:
Tens of thousands of Jews from all four corners of the world gathered in downtown Jerusalem on Wednesday to march in solidarity to the Western Wall, in the annual Jerusalem Day Flag Parade celebrating the 50th anniversary of the reunification of the capital following the Six Day War.

Under a cloudless, sunny sky – amid a pronounced police presence – Independence Park became a sea of blue and white, as thousands of yeshiva students draped in, and waving, Israeli flags danced shoulder to shoulder, their arms locked, while singing joyous Jewish hymns.

Across the road, near the US Consulate on Agron Street, thousands more men, women and children also proudly waved and wore flags, as a wall of 10-foot speakers mounted on the sidewalk blasted song after song, while police helicopters flew high above.

Talia Renner, 19, and Orly Grobeisen, 18, both members of Bnei Akiva, the world’s largest Zionist youth movement, flew to Israel from Mexico City, where they attended Jewish day schools, to participate in the procession to the Western Wall.

“Today is about celebrating that we are here and that the whole nation is united,” said Renner, as she waved a large Israeli flag. “We didn’t have a unified capital before, and now, for 50 years, we have the chance to be here celebrating on Jerusalem’s streets, and at one time we couldn’t.”
But now, we do. Though there's still the fact that some Arabic neighborhoods in the city are dangerous for Jews to enter, and that is bad. For now, it's good that we were able to reclaim the city from a Muslim regime that, despite signing a peace treaty with Israel, is still very hostile and may become more so again in the not too distant future.

And we also have to consider that as Europe stands now, it's become very dangerous thanks to the Islamofascism now infesting the continent, and if conquered by Islam, it'll be very bad for Israeli interests, as well as American ones.

On the positive side, I want to note that marching in crowds with flags is something a lot of countries can and should emulate, and hope that can be possible in the future, assuming they don't have a similar concept yet. The marches performed on Jerusalem Day are an excellent idea for other countries to work on too.

Also, since we're on the subject, the Jerusalem Post's also got an article about 50 paintings celebrating the city, by both domestic and foreign artists.

TRUMP'S VISIT TO ISRAEL GOES PRETTY WELL

Donald Trump arrived today for his visit to Israel, and it went over surprisingly well:
President Donald Trump on Monday touched down in Israel for a 24-hour visit to the Jewish state, the second stop of his first foreign as U.S. president.

Trump was greeted at a red carpet ceremony at Ben Gurion International Airport near Tel Aviv by a large delegation that included Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sarah as well as Netanyahu’s cabinet, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, government ministers and Knesset Members.

Trump’s tour here marks the first time a U.S. president visited Israel during a first presidential trip abroad.

“Never before has the first foreign trip of the president of the United States included a visit to Israel,” Netanyahu said in his remarks at the airport ceremony. “Thank you, Mr. President. Thank you for this powerful expression of your friendship to Israel.

Upon landing, Trump praised “unbreakable bond” between the U.S. and Israel. “On my first trip overseas as president, I have come to this sacred and ancient land to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between the United States and the State of Israel,” Trump said.

“We love Israel, we respect Israel, and I bring the warmest greetings from your friend and ally, all of the people of the United States of America,” Trump stated.
The issue of Iran's nuclear threat was brought up in press conferences, and why it's vital to bring them down. Of course, the same goes for many other Islamic regimes, and Saudi Arabia has to be told again that they're to cease with their own bigoted conduct.

Breitbart also notes that Melanie Trump made quite an impact.

So was Trump's visit a positive example overall? I'd say yes. Even so, there's still a lot more that needs to be done.

CAN MARINE LE PEN'S PARLIAMENTARY CANDIDATES DO BETTER?

She may not have won the presidential election in France, but she's going to make an effort in getting party candidates elected to French parliament (presumably with a name change for the party):
The anti-EU firebrand has rejoined the party after she briefly left ahead of the second round of voting for the presidential election last week, where she secured just 34 per cent of the vote.

But it is unclear if Ms Le Pen will be standing in the June parliamentary election as Front National position themselves to be a thorn in side of the newly elected president.

Despite winning the top job, Emmanuel Macron faces a bitter fight for power in the parliamentary elections as the centrist battles to push ahead with his progressive politics.

President Macron, who established centrist party En Marche! in April 2016, currently has no members from his own party in parliament.

The Europhile former banker will be forced to forge alliances with other parties to pass legislation through the assembly if he is unable to build a parliamentary majority.

And with a record low turnout and a huge number of abstentions and spoiled ballots, his rise to the presidency may not mean a large return of MPs.
We certainly hope not, but so far, there's no way to be sure, though if the Socialist party collapses, they'll deserve it. If estimates are correct, Le Pen's party could get a few dozen seats this time, which would be getting somewhere. They'll just have to make sure all candidates they're fielding uphold honesty and respect for racial backgrounds, if anything. Religion, on the other hand, should not be given privileges at all costs, even if a difference can be made between what religion is good or bad.

IT'S SAD, BUT LE PEN LOST AND MACRON WON, BECAUSE OF VOTER APATHY

The French election results are in, and unfortunately, Marine Le Pen lost while Emmanuel Macron won. Probably nobody expected this, but apparently, while there were surely plenty of leftists who didn't bother to vote, neither did many conservatives, most likely because they didn't trust any elected officials to make the changes needed to make the country safe again. As Joseph Klein notes, however, that doesn't mean populism is going away there:
The two top finishers in the first round election for the French presidency faced each other again in the presidential runoff on May 7th. Emmanuel Macron, a pro-European Union former banker and member of the current Socialist French President Francois Hollande’s cabinet, handily beat the insurgent anti-globalist candidate, Marine Le Pen. Mr. Macron’s margin of victory was approximately 30 percent. According to initial estimates, he garnered between 65.5 percent and 66.1 percent of the votes cast. Ms. Le Pen captured between 33.9 percent and 34.5 percent of the vote. Globalists in Europe and the United States are breathing a sigh in relief. They are convinced that Ms. Le Pen’s landslide defeat has definitively rolled back the rising tide of populism and nationalism evidenced by the Brexit vote and Donald Trump’s victory last year. They may be reading too much into these election results, however.

Mr. Macron did so well in part because of the candidate he was running against. Ms. Le Pen ran ahead of the rest of the field in the first round of the election two weeks ago, but never managed to broaden her appeal much beyond her core constituency.

Ms. Le Pen entered the race bearing the heavy baggage of her party’s anti-Semitic, xenophobic past. She tried mightily to move the National Front party she led beyond the racist, Holocaust-denying message her father had enunciated as the party’s founder. Her platform focused instead on a France-first, economic populist message that caught on with some voters disaffected with the political establishment. However, Ms. Le Pen could not entirely shake the negative image many French voters still held of the National Front party.

Ms. Le Pen also ran a flawed campaign. She squandered the opportunity afforded by the face-to-face debate with Mr. Macron to expand her base with a positive message, in counterpoint to Mr. Macron’s proposed globalist programs. Instead, she chose to go relentlessly negative. Polls taken after the debate showed her as the clear loser. “The debate was fatal for her,” an operator of a popular pro-Le Pen twitter account remarked.

However, although Mr. Macron soundly beat his populist challenger, the underlying populist anger is still there, in France and in Europe as a whole. The anger is fed by a combination of economic dislocation and anti-immigrant sentiment.
I'd also note that this result probably shouldn't come off too surprising, given that Geert Wilders, despite his party growing in the Dutch election, didn't manage to make first place. The leftards and socialists in Europe have been doing their damndest to keep anybody with more rational leanings out of power, and unfortunately, even the French conservatives like Francois Fillon may not have done enough to convince.

Whatever the election result, I should hope all who believe in freedom will be willing to join the army and/or act as war correspondents when World War Three erupts for real, because, as I'd noted earlier, if France and several other European countries fall, it'll be bad for the USA and Israel. Iran's already perfect proof of the next world war looming around the corner, and no matter what you think of Europeans by and large, that doesn't mean we should just sit by quietly while darkness is bound to happen. Point: even if Jews weren't the prime target during WW2, does that mean the Allies shouldn't have taken on Germany? Of course not. Remember, during WW1, the Armenians were a leading target of the Ottoman Empire in its waning days, one of the main reasons why going to war against Germany and Turkey at the time was justified too. There are sensible Europeans out there worth fighting for, and anybody who turns their backs and allows Europe to be turned into a potential breeding ground for a modern Caliphate - not to mention a nuclear arms development center like Iran's - will be failing their dedication to human values.

What can be done is to encourage concerned Europeans to do what Geert Wilders once did, and speak before Congress. That's but one way to make a difference, because if the USA can provide a positive influence, then clearly, that's an important place to confer with anybody and everybody who can help.

Update: one of Hot Air's writers tells why he thinks the French were in a lose-lose situation. And here's more info on how many abstained.

The allied forces during WW2 have to shoulder blame for not acting sooner

Benjamin Netanyahu made a crucial point about why the Holocaust happened:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday slammed western powers during his speech on Holocaust Remembrance Day, saying that Allied powers knew of the atrocities happening to Jews in death camps and had they have acted on that knowledge they would have saved the lives of four million Jews and millions of others.

The prime minister cited newly released documents from the UN that show the Allied forces were aware of the extent of the Holocaust in 1942 – two and half years earlier than previously assumed.

It was a “chilling revelation,” Netanyahu said.

“If the powers in 1942 had acted against the death camps — and all that was needed was repeated bombing of the camps — had they acted then, they could have saved four million Jews and millions of other people,” he said at the official state Yom HaShoah ceremony at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem.

“When terrible crimes were being committed against the Jews, when our brothers and sisters were being sent to the furnaces,” he said, “the powers knew and did not act.”

According to Netanyahu, the Holocaust was the result of three elements coming together: a deep hatred of the Jews, global apathy to the horrors that occurred, and “the terrible weakness of our people in the Diaspora.”

Anti-Semitism had not disappeared, and neither was it likely to in the foreseeable future, he said. It was made worse by Iran and the Islamic State, he added. This was to be the only mention of the Islamic republic in his speech, a marked departure from previous years in which he would single out Iran several times.

Global indifference was still alive today too, Netanyahu said.
Yes, and that indifference is exactly what's turned several areas in Europe into hellholes, as self-hating European politicians turn against their own populations. It's considerable damage that's going to take ages to repair, and until then, the chances of another world war are very possible.

Here's more about Netanyahu giving a stern warning Islamofascist countries like Iran.

Emmanuel Macron attacked Jewish schools

Since we're talking about the French election, any Jews in France who overlook this disturbing news from several months ago, which did cause some anger, will be making a big mistake:
French presidential hopeful and former Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron sparked an uproar in the French Jewish community, following the publication of an interview earlier this month of an interview touching upon religious schools in France.

[...] Speaking with Marianne earlier this month, Macron warned of the influence of religion in French schools generally and decrying Jewish schools for emphasizing the Torah.

“It is very important to maintain neutrality in the public sector,” Macron said. “Religion cannot be present in school. But I hear few people becoming concerned by the consequences of this phenomenon, [with] more and more children being sent to religious schools which teach them to hate the Republic and teach mainly in Arabic, or,” Macron added, “in other places [Jewish schools] teach the Torah more than general studies.”
That kind of talk could easily suggest Jewish schools are no different than Muslim schools. Far from it, and most Jewish schools in France have some of the best students in various other subjects too. That Macron would make such a superficial claim only does more damage, and puts his sincerity further in doubt. Here's some of the French language interviews on Marianne and La Croix.

Since we're on the subject, the UK Telegraph says Macron would also be bad for Brexit:
Barring an unforeseen electoral earthquake, the centrist Emmanuel Macron now looks set fair to become the next president of France in two weeks’ time.

As the leader of one of the EU’s two most powerful nations, Mr Macron will have a key role in formulating the European Union’s attitude to Brexit when talks get underway after the UK’s General election on June 8.

Theresa May has been clear that she does not want the EU or the euro to unravel - a near-certainty were Marine Le Pen to win the Elysee Palace - but while a Macron presidency brings stability, the 39-year-old former banker has promised to drive a hard bargain with Britain.
Worse is the hard bargain he'll drive with his own country, since his positions on safety and security for the public are uncertain.

And, if it matters, what about his affair and marriage with a former teacher of his, Brigitte Trogneux, when he was 16 years old, at a time when he was still underage and she was in her late 30s? His defense for this was:
“Nobody would call it unusual if the age difference was reversed,” he said. “People find it difficult to accept something that is sincere and unique.”
No, he's missing the point. In the USA, if an older teacher has an affair with a student who's under 18, it's considered illegal, and she would've been arrested and charged for violating statutory laws. The same goes for if a male teacher did the same with an underage girl. So what's his point? What he's done is an embarrassment, even if it's nothing compared to his fishy policies on security for the country and combating terrorism, which he doesn't seem to have a clue what to do about.

Marine Le Pen makes it to 2nd round of French election, with Emmanuel Macron as rival

The results of the first round are in, with some results giving Le Pen nearly 4 percent more in results than Emmanuel Macron. I'll have to admit, it's a shame that Francois Fillon didn't make it, because Macron's proven himself untrustworthy already.

Yet Fillon, in his defeat, isn't making a good impression upon himself, if, according to the reports I've seen, he said he'd support Macron in the second round. Does Fillon actually believe in his own platform, or doesn't he? Yes, I think it's idiotic to just go and throw support behind somebody who's bound to be an extension of Hollande's own disastrous government.

For now, we have to hope Marine Le Pen can win the presidency on the second round, and that nobody will be fooled by Macron's own deceptions.

TERRORIST ATTACK IN LONDON'S WESTMINSTER NEIGHBORHOOD LEAVES 3 VICTIMS DEAD

Even Britain's still in serious danger of jihadism, as today's horrible incident just proved. The Irish Times has the following:
Four people, including a police officer, two pedestrians and a knifeman have been killed in what police described as a “terror incident” at Westminster in London.

The attacker, armed with two large knives, mowed down pedestrians with his car on Westminster Bridge, including schoolchildren, then rushed at the gates in front of the Houses of Parliament, stabbing a policeman before he was shot by armed officers.

Scotland Yard said the attack in London, which took place on the first anniversary of attacks on Brussels, was being treated “as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise”.

The attacker, described by one witness as an Asian man in his 40s, ran over several pedestrians as he drove a grey Hyundai i40 across Westminster Bridge at about 2.45pm before crashing it into railings. He then ran through the gates of the Palace of Westminster and stabbed the officer.

Eyewitnesses said he was shot at least three times by police as he approached a second officer with the knife. He died later in hospital.

At least 10 patients, including three French teenagers on a school visit to London, were treated on Westminster Bridge, London Ambulance Service said.
Even in the UK, French have been victimized. These students are lucky to have survived.

Note that in Britain, "Asian" can allude to people of Arabic/Pakistani background. So we know who the culprit could've been, and he should go straight to hell for what he did.

Update: more news on Hot Air.

Mental Patients Complain of Panic Attacks and Insomnia Because of President Trump

These people need to get a life.

Here, "'TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME: It's Really a Thing...'":
I think folks should just tune it out, live life. Read a book or something. Go to the movies. Go swimming. Have a glass of wine and talk to your kids. Sheesh. I teach politics for a living. I know there's lots more to life than stressing over the president.

MARINE LE PEN BRAVELY REFUSED TO WEAR HEADSCARF AT LEBANESE MUFTI'S HQ

The lady candidate for French presidency did something the female dhimmis in Sweden wouldn't do: she refused to wear a hijab during a visit to a Lebanese mufti, and ideally cancelled the meeting with him too:
French far-right National Front presidential candidate Marine Le Pen canceled a meeting on Tuesday with Lebanon's grand mufti, its top cleric for Sunni Muslims, after refusing to wear a headscarf for the encounter.

Le Pen, among the frontrunners for the presidency, is using a two-day visit to Lebanon to bolster her foreign policy credentials nine weeks from the April 23 first round, and may be partly targeting potential Franco-Lebanese votes.

Many Lebanese fled to France, Lebanon's former colonial power, during their country's 1975-1990 civil war and became French citizens.

After meeting Christian President Michel Aoun - her first public handshake with a head of state - and Sunni Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri on Monday, she had been scheduled to meet the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian

He heads the Dar al-Fatwa, the top religious authority for Sunni Muslims in the multireligious country.

"I met the grand mufti of Al-Azhar," she told reporters, referring to a visit in 2015 to Cairo's 1,000-year-old center of Islamic learning. "The highest Sunni authority didn't have this requirement, but it doesn't matter.

"You can pass on my respects to the grand mufti, but I will not cover myself up," she said.

The cleric's press office said Le Pen's aides had been informed beforehand that a headscarf was required for the meeting and had been "surprised by her refusal".
Oh, sure, I'll bet they were surprised. It's more likely they were enraged underneath she wouldn't kowtow to their demands she demean herself and grovel before the mufti. And she shouldn't adhere to a dress code imposed by Haredi extremists like Satmar either. Whatever her motivations for visiting that mufti, she did the right thing by not meeting him in the end. If he demanded women not be themselves, then he doesn't deserve the dignity of a visit by a politician from a civilized society. Le Pen was brave to refuse, and did the right thing not to grovel.

KNESSET PASSES A LAW TO PROTECT JEWISH NEIGHBORHOODS IN JUDEA/SAMARIA

The Knesset's passed a special bill to legalize a lot of the neighborhoods that the MSM has the gall to call "settlements":
The Knesset on Monday evening passed the controversial outpost regulation bill that will allow the government to retroactively grant permits to contested Judea and Samaria communities. Following a long, stormy session, 60 lawmakers voted in favor of the bill, and 52 voted against it.
This is the good part. Trouble is, it won't be without opposition from the usual suspects:
The new Judea and Samaria Settlement Regulation Law has already been challenged, as several leftist groups have announced they will petition the High Court of Justice to strike it down.
Which is shameful, of course. Especially if the court intends to take a pre-determined standing in their favor. For now, this is great news, and everybody who upholds the new bill should let their voices be known.

WITH TRUMP NOW PRESIDENT, LET'S HOPE ISRAELI RELATIONS CAN IMPROVE

Let's also hope this can convince European countries, for example, of why they too need to change their ways. For now, Israeli leaders are congratulating Donald Trump on his ascension to presidency:
Israel’s leaders congratulated Donald Trump on his inauguration as US President and expressed excitement at working with him to strengthen the US-Israel relationship.

Israel’s political leaders expressed their congratulations to Donald Trump who was inaugurated as President of the United States on Friday.

“Congrats to my friend President Trump,” tweeted Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday before the onset of the Jewish Sabbath in Israel. “Look fwd to working closely with you to make the alliance between Israel & USA stronger than ever.”

Israel’s Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer echoed Netanyahu’s remarks. “Congratulations President Trump! Israel looks forward to working with you to make the US-Israel alliance greater than ever.”

Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon shared his view in a statement that Trump’s presidency not only presented an opportunity to strengthen the US-Israel relationship but also to improve Israel’s standing in the United Nations.

“A true friend of Israel will enter the White House today,” Danon said. “After the shameful resolution that was adopted by the Security Council, Israel looks forward to strengthening our most important alliance and leading together towards a new era at the UN.”
And let's hope the UN is defunded, even by European countries. There's no use in wasting valuable tax money on such a repellent, dishonest organization.

IT FLOPPED LIKE A FAILED SOUFFLE

Israel's diplomats say that the phony peace conference in Paris is the failure it truly is:
The Paris peace summit, despite concern that it could end with another damaging anti-Israel resolution, turned out “flat as a failed souffle,” Israeli Foreign Ministry Spokesman Emanuel Nahshon said.

The conclusion of Sunday’s Mideast peace conference in Paris urged Israelis and Palestinians to “officially restate their commitment to the two-state solution.” It also warned both sides against taking one-sided actions that could hurt talks, an apparent reference to Israeli settlement building in eastern Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria.

Despite concern in Israel that the conference could end with another damaging resolution against the Jewish state, nothing of the sort occurred. Earlier in the day, US Secretary of State John Kerry – who had defended the Obama administration’s abstention from UN Security Council Resolution 2334, condemning Israeli settlements and had led the failed Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations – assured Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the US would oppose any further resolutions based on conclusions at the summit.
Oh, like we should take anything Kerry says at face value. Most certainly not. Besides, even if this is the last of this atrocity for now, it's not like Kerry and Obama aren't likely to cause more trouble after they leave office.

That said, it's apparent that the opposition to the conference had some effect, including the US Congress' own condemnation and bills to cut funding to the UN.
Nonetheless, the summit, with the participation of over 70 countries, ended with a message to Israel as well as to the incoming US administration that the only viable solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, according to international opinion, is a two-state solution.

“The two-state solution is still the objective of the international community for the future,” French President Francois Hollande said. “With this conference I wanted to inscribe the two-state solution on the international agenda.”
Such big talk from somebody who already alienated much of the public with his disastrous security steps. It's worth noting that a few countries didn't even officially attend, and:
The final declaration also included criticism of incitement and “terror,” an apparent reference to Palestinian attacks. And some of the pro-Palestinian language in an earlier draft was removed after diplomats huddled in Paris.

The incoming US administration did not take part in the meeting, nor did it immediately comment on its final statement. President-elect Donald Trump had expressed disagreement with the conference.

Apparently in deference to the Trump team, the UK delegation did not include any senior-level officials.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon dismissed Sunday’s conference, tweeting that it was “flat as a failed soufflé.”

“A big show is no replacement for direct negotiations between the parties,” he said.
For once, Britain did something positive, and I think Russia also abstained from attendance. Thankfully, the backlash did have some effect, though there's still a long way to go, even now that Trump's been elected.

EVEN IF IT WAS UNSUCCESSFUL, PARIS PSEUDO-PEACE CONFERENCE WAS STILL OFFENSIVE

The "peace" conference held in Paris may have ended earlier than expected, but it was still very awful, and did as much a disfavor to Europeans as it did to Israelis and Americans:
Instead of convening a summit on the ongoing civil war in Syria, or the migrant crisis threatening Europe, or the rampant anti-Semitism plaguing its own country, France on Sunday held a convention attended by over 70 nations to affirm the international community’s commitment to creating a Palestinian state.

At the end of the farcical display, and with neither Israel nor the Palestinian Authority in attendance, the Paris summit representatives released a brief concluding declaration unanimously agreed to after negotiations between the countries.

Reports here credited Israeli diplomats with helping to water down the anti-Israel language of the final declaration, calling the text a “significant weakening” and “less harsh than was initially expected.”
Nevertheless, it was still one of the worst acts of hostility a dhimmi government/politician could pull on anybody. But it's fortunate that both Israel's efforts and those of the US Congress helped persuade all involved to let it go sooner than expected, for now. Francois Hollande is still a very bad lot, even though he's leaving his post of president.

Graham and Cruz introduce bill to block US funding to UN, and GOP issues letter in support of moving embassy to Jerusalem

The Wash. Examiner reports that senators Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham are forwarding a new bill to cut funding for the UN, which doesn't need anyone's money:
The United States taxpayer must stop paying into the United Nations until it reverses its vote condemning Israel's occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, two top senators said Thursday.

Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, appeared together on MSNBC about a new bill introduced Thursday that would block taxpayer dollars from going toward the U.N. Graham said the resolution passed last month, which the United States abstained from, was a step too far in attacking Israel and it must be undone.

"Twenty-two percent of the money to fund the U.N. comes from the American taxpayer. I don't think it's a good investment for the American taxpayer to give money to an organization that condemns the only democracy in the Middle East,"
he said.

Reports indicate the U.S. gives about $8 billion to the U.N. every year in voluntary and mandatory payments.
The UN hasn't been a good investment for decades. Billions of dollars wasted for years, and it's time to stop giving them taxpayer money they don't deserve.

The Republicans have also been putting together a special letter in support of moving the embassy to Jerusalem as quickly as possible:
House Republicans are passing around a letter expressing support for “swift action” by the incoming Trump administration to relocate America’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, according to a copy obtained by The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.

The letter, which has not yet obtained any signatures, is addressed to the president-elect’s transition team in Trump Tower, indicating the caucus’s intent to send it before Donald Trump’s inauguration next week.

“Moving the embassy will strengthen the unique alliance between Israel and the United States and send a clear message to the world that we support Israel in recognizing Jerusalem as its eternal capital,” the letter reads.

“This action is all the more urgent in light of the anti-Israel Resolution 2334, adopted by the United Nations Security Council on December 23, 2016,” it continues. “The resolution invites renewed diplomatic hostility and economic warfare against Israel, and we must act urgently to mitigate its consequences and to reaffirm our steadfast commitment to Israel.”
The Post also says that:
While previous presidents from both parties have promised to move the embassy while campaigning, they have all backed down from their vows in fear that it would prompt an intifada in the Palestinian territories and turmoil elsewhere.
That's not the only reason. It's also because presidents like Clinton, Obama and even Bush didn't want to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capitol. In any case, any Islamofascist who resorts to violence over this is only invalidating their positions even more than they already are. And that's a point all concerned must make, ditto the fact that serious penalties must be taken against all violent offenders, and for now, deterring actions must be taken too.

FRANCOIS HOLLANDE PLANS TO HARM ISRAEL ANEW ON HIS WAY OUT, MUCH LIKE OBAMA

Who's practically given Hollande his blessing to do what he'll be doing next Sunday. Anne Bayefsky talks about the French government's upcoming attack on Israel, which they're even doing at the expense of the French public:
On January 15, 2017, with only five days left after 2,917 days in office, President Barack Obama is planning once again to feed Israel to the international wolves. The move is intended to tie the hands of President Donald Trump and is a direct repudiation of the will of the American electorate who rejected Obama’s calamitous foreign policy and a repeat performance by his secretary of state.

On Sunday, France is scheduled to hold an international conference to unleash an international mob on Israel. The meeting is taking place with Obama’s direct connivance. Seventy-states have been lined up to impose their preferences on the Middle East’s only democracy. Israelis are still dying in Israeli streets after seventy years of unending Arab terror – and the folks sitting in Paris munching on croissants know best how to protect Israeli national security.

The bare-faced power-grab by France and its Arab allies – with the blessing of President Obama – raises unavoidable questions: Who will attend? If they attend, how senior a representative will be sent by the main players on the Security Council: the U.S., Russia, and the United Kingdom? Will attendees sign on to an outcome document imperiling Israel that is already circulating? Will the Middle East Quartet – composed of the U.S., the EU, Russia and the UN – approve of the outcome document? Will a UN Security Council subsequently approve of the outcome document before January 20, 2017?
Any country's leaders who say they're against the UN resolution but attend anyway and give their backing to the policies started at the UN is not showing any remorse for what they started. President-elect Trump should respond, and Congress should by all means do more to send a message. The European politicians doing this cannot be allowed to go without getting admonished for taking steps that pose a danger as much to Europe's own population as they do to Israel's.

The jihad truck attack is the new hip mode of jihad massacre.

And it's no surprise we're seeing this massacre just two weeks after the Berlin jihad attack.

GOP CONDEMNS UN, BUT SOME DEMOCRATS VOTE AGAINST THE RESOLUTION

The Republicans in Congress have issued their resolution condemning the UN for their anti-Israel/settlement vote:
Israel’s UN ambassador lauded a bipartisan measure, overwhelmingly approved by the House of Representatives, that rebukes the UN for criticizing Israeli “settlements,” adding that he’s looking forward to working with the incoming Trump administration.

American lawmakers voted 342-80 on Thursday for a non-binding resolution that declares unwavering support for Israel and insists that the US reject any future actions at the UN that are similarly “one-sided and anti-Israel.”

The House action was taken in response to the Obama administration’s abstention in the passing of Resolution 2334 at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) last month, which condemns Israeli “settlements” – i.e. Jewish communities in eastern Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria – as an obstacle to a peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The UN resolution essentially endorsed the Palestinian position by calling for the pre-1967 lines to serve as the reference point for final borders. According to the new measure, Resolution 2334 “undermines the prospect for Israelis and Palestinians resuming productive, direct negotiations” and should be “repealed or fundamentally altered.”
But did all Democrats actually back the condemnation along with the GOP? Unfortunately, as the following text from a Republican Jewish Coalition newsletter reveals, a certain portion refused to join:
Washington D.C. – Last night, House Republicans overwhelmingly voted in support of a resolution reaffirming the United States’ commitment to Israel after President Obama turned his back on our closest ally. In the past, a resolution like this would have sailed through with near unanimous support, but once again Democrats showed they are no longer the party for pro-Israel Jews.

Despite House Republicans’ efforts to achieve full bi-partisan support for the pro-Israel resolution, 76 Democrats voted against it.

The least surprising vote against the resolution was Representative Keith Ellison’s. It’s clear that Ellison, a leading candidate to head the Democratic National Committee, and endorsed by establishment Democrats like Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, will continue the anti-Israel policies of President Obama, which alienate and wrongly pressure the one true democracy in the Middle East.

"Five years ago, Democrats on the floor of their convention booed a pro-Israel resolution, and yesterday 76 Democrats in the House voted against another pro-Israel resolution. Today's Democrat Party is no longer a home for pro-Israel voters. The Republican Party is." - Matt Brooks, RJC Executive Director

Megyn Kelly's Move to NBC Could Shake-Up the Cable News Landscape

Cross-posted from American Power.

*****

Following-up from earlier, "Megyn Kelly to Join NBC News."

I watched the "Kelly File" tonight, looking to catch the last of Ms. Megyn's appearances on Fox News. Unlike a lot of conservatives during the GOP primary (especially on Twitter), I wasn't critical of her. I liked her approach. I think Trump said some nasty things. I don't like him any less, but I don't think he shouldn't be called out from time to time.

In any case, it's going to be interesting at Fox News with Megyn gone. The network will be fine. The New York Times reported today that network executives have no plans to change the conservative programming that's made Fox the leader in cable news. That's good. On the other hand, I liked the more news/analysis feel of the 6:00pm hour (Pacific time) between O'Reilly and Hannity. Indeed, I always get a kick with how the "Kelly File" opens with "BREAKING TONIGHT!" It seems so urgent, heh.

In any case, at WaPo:


Megyn Kelly's wholly unsurprising decision to leave Fox News to join NBC leaves a void at the network where she spent the past 12 years, and perhaps nudges the cable news juggernaut in a new direction — while opening the door for media rivals.

Kelly confirmed her job change in a message Tuesday on Twitter after it was first reported by the New York Times.

Already a cable news star before the 2016 election cycle began, Kelly became a household name as she remained poised amid nasty attacks by Donald Trump, who objected to her line of questioning at the first Republican primary debate. Last January, Fox News's then-chairman, Roger Ailes, rejected Trump's demand that the network replace Kelly as a moderator of the second debate, even as the billionaire threatened to boycott the event — which he did.

When former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson accused Ailes of sexual harassment in a lawsuit in July, prompting 21st Century Fox to launch an investigation, Kelly shared her own claim of harassment by Ailes, who resigned later that month.

From then on, Kelly seemed to be viewed as a traitor by some Ailes loyalists who remained at Fox News. Sean Hannity called her a Hillary Clinton supporter in October. Bill O'Reilly criticized Kelly's decision to air dirty laundry in a book released in November.

“If somebody is paying you a wage, you owe that person or company allegiance,” O'Reilly told CBS News. “You don't like what's happening in the workplace? Go to human resources or leave. I've done that. And then take the action you need to take afterward if you feel aggrieved. There are labor laws in this country. But don't run down the concern that supports you by trying to undermine it.”

Kelly's departure from Fox News appeared inevitable. But now that it is here, it is worth considering the effect on cable news...
An interesting piece.

Keep reading.

At at the bottom tweet above, Ms. Megyn announces she leaving the network.
