The pro-Israel UCI organization Anteaters for Israel (AFI), instead of being encouraged and supported by the Federation and its local Hillel, have not only become the focus of the Federation’s ire, but also the victims of its appeasement of demonstrably Jew-hating groups such as the Muslim Student Union (MSU) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). It is no surprise, therefore, that at least three members of AFI, Sharon Shaoulian, Jackie A. and Emily P.*, have become increasingly alarmed and concerned about the Jew-hatred on UCI’s campus and what appears to be the unimpeded growth of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement there.That's truly awful, and if that's how the Federation's behaving, then they shouldn't be members, nor should they pay any membership money to them. This also demonstrates how the Federation is no friend to Arabs who believe in the cause of good either.
According to the students, in May of 2014 an ugly physical assault by the MSU and SJP occurred during IFEST, the annual celebration of Israel on the UCI campus. What happened was bad enough but what followed was even worse. Students say they were intimidated by the Federation and ostracized because they had called the police to report the assault.
The assault took place on the UCI campus around the same time that Nonie Darwish, an Egyptian American who is the founder of Arabs for Israel, would have spoken there. However, two days before she was to speak she was disinvited by the leaders of the Federation and Hillel because they considered her to be “too inflammatory .” Student leaders from AFI who had booked Ms. Darwish were forced to cancel her at the last moment. According to AFI board members Jackie and Emily, the Federation threatened students by telling them that they would encourage all other outside organizations to stop funding the campus student group AFI if they did not comply with their demand and cancel Ms. Darwish. Ms. Darwish, whose father was killed by the IDF for conducting terrorist operations against Israel while he was working for President Nasser of Egypt, has become a passionate advocate for Israel, but such people are anathema to the Federation and Hillel.

The African jihadist gang has murdered 38 people in a Nigerien village:
Many of the victims that were killed during the overnight attacks were women and children, according to the BBC. The news service quoted a Nigerien official who said that along with killing civilians, “the militants had burnt down several houses.” Boko Haram has yet to comment on the attack.And all this while, western politicians sit around doing nothing while innocent lives are lost to these savages.
The Diffa region of Niger, which sits in the southeast of the country, borders Nigeria’s volatile Borno state. Boko Haram attacked this region back in February when it assaulted the town of Bosso. The militants were able to enter the town, however, Nigerien military officials said that its forces drove the attackers back, “killing 109.” That assault occurred just days after Boko Haram attacked the town of Fotokol in Cameroon, killing 70.

Chad has banned people from wearing the full-face veil, following two suicide bomb attacks on Monday. Chad's government accused Nigerian militant Islamist group Boko Haram of the bombings which killed more than 20 people.
The prime minister said the veil was used as a "camouflage" by militants and said the security forces will burn all full-face veils sold in markets. Chad is to host a new regional force set up to tackle Boko Haram. The militant group has not commented on the attack but has previously threatened to attack Chad, after its forces started to help Nigeria.
At a meeting with religious leaders, Prime Minister Kalzeube Pahimi Deubet said the ban applied everywhere, not only public places.EUROPE AND THE USA OUGHT TO DO THE SAME.

If transgender and transracial are cool, then it's unfair to shun transfat.
The Obama administration is making good on its pledge to all but ban trans fat nationwide. The FDA issued a final decision Tuesday that gives the food industry three years to phase out partially hydrogenated oils, the main source of trans fat, which are still used in a wide variety of products from microwave popcorn to cake frosting.

The Islamofascists have been stepping up their threats against Geller, this time by posting her address on Twitter:
An Islamic State terrorist kingpin in Britain is believed to have posted the full home address of anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller, urging jihadists to "go forth" and kill her, according to news reports.Pajamas Media says it's unclear how long the post remained on Twitter, but it's obvious already that Geller could be in grave danger, and that's why eyes need to be kept in the backs of our heads.
"#GoForth," the tweet urged via a hashtag on Friday, the International Business Times reported Saturday. The post revealed Geller's New York City address, complete with apartment number.
U.S. authorities believe the Twitter account belongs to British jihadist Junaid Hussain, according to the report. His online name is believed to be Abu Hussain al-Britani.
The Twitter account linked to the Geller post has since been suspended, the IBT reports. The tweet came hours after a third man was arrested in a scheme to murder her and Boston police.
