Germany: Reporter asks Muslims in Jordan : "Would you allow your sister to work, travel or live alone.?"

With the mass importation of Islam into Europe and the problems of integration that have arisen regards assimilation especially regards female rights. German  broadcaster Deutsche Welle sent a reporter to moderate Islamic Jordan in the Middle East to ask local men how they would feel if their sisters went out on their own or god forbid to work. The answers from smiling laughing men should be broadcast across the West in which to show that actually Islam is not compatible with our way of life.

South Africa: Government issues statement for Israel to depart Gaza, something it did 13 years ago.

(Pretoria) following on from its motion to close links with Israel regards how it defended itself from mass invasion from Gaza. The South African Government today issued a statement calling on the IDF to withdraw from Gaza. The thing is Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005.

 As you may have gathered the responce has been rather cutting:

My favourite has to be this reply:

Israel: Photo released of F35 stealth fighter flying over Beirut.

(Jerusalem)  So the other-day  the IDF revealed that they had used the F35A stealth fighter in its recent attacks on Iranian assets inside Syria and last night a photo was revealed by a Israeli TV news station of a F35 flying over Beirut. Whilst some will see this as a leak, I'd go down the path that this was a very subtle message to Iran and Hezb-allah that despite getting their hands on advanced anti-aircraft missiles the IDF can now strike them at will.

Expect the usual outpouring of so called moral outrage from the ethical tofu crowd, once they wake up in the morning.

Ramadan Death Count: India: 23/05/18

(Kashmir) Five civilians were killed and nine others injured as Pakistani troops rained mortars and opened heavy fire on Indian villages and army border posts along the International Border between India and Pakistan for the sixth day running. Its appears that for Pakistanis Ramadan isn't a time for peace, and good thoughts.

Which kind of explains why since last Friday nearly 40,000 residents have fled the 200 kilometre-long (125 mile) conflict zone, between the Jammu region in India-administered Kashmir and Pakistan's Punjab province. Indian authorities have closed all schools within five kilometres (three miles) of the border and have lodged panicked residents in camps away from the guns.
