.Pakistan: 3 suicide bombers strike one town , 6 dead.

(QuettaApparently somebody or something has pissed off the Taliban in the Pakistani city of Quetta which today saw 3 suicide bombers utter ‘Allah ackba’ for the last time killing 6 Police officers and injuring 15 others.

Two suicide bombers tried to attack a paramilitary checkpoint on the city’s outskirts, but troops deployed there engaged them, who detonated their explosives, wounding eight soldiers, half an hour later another bomber detonated his explosives next to a police truck killing 6 and injuring another 7 people.

UN: Gaza $200 Million short of Aid after US cuts, UN fears food may run out by June.

(Gaza) Food Aid for Gaza may run out from June if the U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees cannot find another $200 million following a cut in U.S. funding.  Pierre Kraehenbuehl, who heads the U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) providing aid for Palestinians across the Middle East, said U.S. President Donald Trump had withheld $305 million in funding, far more than the $65 million reported in January.

Gulf states, Norway and Canada have stepped in with a total of $200 million to help meet a planned $465 million budget for 2018. The United States, long the biggest donor to the agency, is providing just $60 million of a promised $365 million, Kraehenbuehl said. That leaves a $200 million shortfall to fill for rice, flour, sugar and also to keep funding schools in Gaza and the West Bank.

Help me here, if the US has cut its aid package to Gaza from $365 M to $60 M, that is a shortfall of $305. If others stump up an additional $200M, that shortfall falls to $105 million, yet the UN is claiming they are $200 million short. Can somebody please explain how thy arrived at that figure. Also if anybody from the UN happens to come across this post could you please explain why Gaza is one of the most obese countries in the world. Where between 18% to 25% of the Strip’s residents have a normal weight, the rest are all overweight.  Hey don't believe me, that's what the Arab press are saying. 

As for that cut in US funding, all Trump asked of the Palestinians was they sought peace, and guess what they didn't. Well despite the cries from the ethical latte drinkers at the UN we all know that nobody will actually starve to death in Gaza.

Somali : Troops fight over abandoned Military equipment

(Mogadishu)  Africa has the potential of being one of the most powerful continents in the World, its people, resources if properly utilised could leave Europe, North America and China well behind if the political will to work for the common good could be adopted. However and a huge unfortunate however  that will never happen as long as tribal politics takes central stage. 

On the 11th of April the United Arab Emirates pulled out of Somalia where they had been helping train the Somalian Polcie and Military since 2014, however that all came to an end a fortnight ago after the Somalian Government decided to divest a UAE plane carrying the wages of the Somalian security forces undergoing training at the hands of the UAE of $10 million. Yes that right, the Somali government stole the wages of its own soldiers simply because it can and then had the audacity to say they would take over the paying of its troops.

It appears that Mogadishu wasn't happy how last month the UAE agreed to train the security forces of the Somalia Puntland (A small strip of land which broke away from Somalia in 1998 and has not suffered the violence and bloodshed that the rest of the country has faced) and to build a naval base in the region and then 3 days ago another incident transpired where, UAE troops got embroiled in a standoff in the Puntland with authorities there, when they wanted to check baggage going onto a plane leaving the country.

With the UAE out of the country, Somalian troops, decided to grab some gizz-its (Give us it) from the former UAE training camp by staging their own supermarket sweep, problem was, the camp was manned by Somalian troops who opened fire on their fellow countrymen, in the ensuring gun fight 12 soldiers (6 from each side were killed) The camp has now been secured by the presidential Guard, who no doubt will get the pick of the litter.

The thing here is in the vast majority of Africans countries the same mindset of stealing what the other fellow has is rife and until Africa develops a system of god practice, it will forever be left in the stone age albeit with AK47s. 

Pakistan: Father (and son) honour kill daughter for refusing arranged marriage.

(West Mangowal)  26-year-old Sana Cheema has lived in Italy since 2002, however her Pakistani family wanted her to marry somebody they chose for her, she having living virtually all her life in the West had different ideas and wanted to marry somebody she wanted in Italy. That didn’t go down well back in Pakistan. So the family tricked her into visiting the mother land and on her last day in country they killed her for offending their honour. As these are honourable people they recorded her death down as a heart attack and buried their beloved daughter.

However, after numerous allegation of a honour killing were reported the police have been forced to investigate and guess what the father, son and uncle have now been arrested on charges of ...murder.

Pakistan: Christian girl set alight for turning down Muslim marriage proposal

(Sialkot) Last week in the Punjab area of Pakistan , Rizwan Gujjar who had fallen in love with 25 year old Christian girl Asma who worked as a domestic servant  at his familys house, asked her to renounce her faith and marry him. She refused and in order to regain his honour Rizwan  poured petrol all over her and set her on fire. Then as only a brave Pakistani male can do, he did a runner. 

Asma survived the murder attempt however she has suffered 80% burns to her body and succumbed to her injuries on Sunday (Hat tip to Soloman2)

Lebanon: Hezbollah terrorist blows himself up at home.

(Sidon)  Police in Lebanon have reported that Hezb-allah terrorist Bilal Hassan was killed in the southern Lebanese city of Sidon when the grenade cartridge for a rocket-propelled-grenade launcher he was holding decided to go boom. As this is Lebanon , Police only got to enter the crime scene after Hezb-allah terrorists inspected it first.

Turkey: Children’s Day performance stopped due to complaint over 10 year old girls showing their midriff

(Akdeniz) A Children’s Day performance by a group of 10 year old school girls was brought to an abrupt halt after  Adem Şimşek  the Ministry of Education Chairman complained about the young girls having bare midriffs.
“'It was not a suitable dress for children and education environment at that age'
That said the Teachers and the parents didn’t agree  saying,
“‘You can’t see our children as sexual objects, what kind of an understanding is this? These are children.’”
This people is what happens when pious Islam is enforced onto those who aren't that religious.
(Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s has been a vocal advocate of raising what he has called a “pious generation” with millions of dollars of extra funds set aside for religious education and special religious schools.)
Something which is also happening in the West and our so called political elites are complicit because they are terrified of been seen as…bigots.

Belgium: 3 Transport workers attacked for checking tickets.

(Peterbos) On Sunday, 3 public transport workers were violently attacked and put in hospital after they tried to do their job of checking people travelling with valid tickets on the outskirts of Brussels. 

Apparently for certain members of the community this offended their honour and so they went out of their way in which to show these unclean people how angry they were.

For some strange reason the Peterbos district is seen as a problem area in Anderlecht. which was aptly captured by this TV crew the other day:

Sometime you can't help but laugh

Belgium: Three companies in court over chemical exports to Syria

(Brussels)  One thing I've noticed these past few years is how pressure groups love to claim that the US and Uk armed the most despotic regimes going, without providing any evidence or remaining silent on those that actually did. So we've all heard how the US and Uk armed Saddam, yet the fact remains his armoury of weapons have very few systems with a made in the US or UK stamp on them. (If you feel I am incorrect here, please be so kind as to prove me wrong with facts)  Which kind of explained all the Russian,Chinese, French, South African and Serbian weapon systems found within Iraq. Of late the country in question has moved North West to Syria and again the ethical latte drinkers have said the exact same thing and yet the vast majority of weapons are again Russian, Chinese and Eastern European and it was the same with Chemicals, In Iraq it was found that Germany built the chemical plants and Holland supplied the chemicals and in Syria it has been found that Belgium, (The country which loves to take the moral high ground when it comes to the US and UK) has been selling chemicals to Assad since 2013. The export of chemicals to Syria has been subject to special authorisation since 2013, but Belgian customs apparently did not take into account the ban of the International Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons of the United Nations.

Which is why the court case for 3 companies (AAE Chemie, Danmar Logistics, and intermediary Anex Customs) will begin next month in Antwerp over the export of several chemical substances between 2014 and 2016 to the Assad regime.The firms say they acted with the consent of Belgian customs officials between 2014 and 2016 but were subsequently alleged to have failed to apply for the permits that would protect them from falling afoul of the current global ban on exports.

How strange that those who claim to have the highest moral standards (during the 1991 Gulf war, Belgium refused to sell the Uk 120 mm tank ammunition (A fellow NATO member) as the Uk was part of the coalition which helped kick Iraq out of Kuwait which it has captured and occupied in 1990)  have no problem breaking their own ethical guidelines in which to make a quick buck from a despotic dictator. 

Canada: Van driven into crowd 10 people killed.

(Toronto)  As you may have heard a nutter drove into pedestrians in northern Toronto on Monday, killing 10 and injuring 15.

At around 13.30 hrs local time a white rental van mounted the kerb on Yonge Street between Finch Avenue and Sheppard Avenue and drove into pedestrians along a 2km (1.24 mile) stretch. The driver 25 year old Alek Minassian, when cornered by police, pulled out a gun and demanded that police shoot him, they didn't (brave police) and he is currently been questioned.

France: Muslims not happy over Anti-Semitism letter

(Paris)  On Sunday over 300 intellectuals published a letter to French Muslims complaining about the rise of Anti-Semitism across the country pointing the finger of blame at "Islamist radicalisation" for what it said was "quiet ethnic purging" in the Paris region, with abuse forcing Jewish families to move out and demanding  for verses in the Koran calling for the "murder and punishment of Jews, Christians and disbelievers" to be removed on the grounds that they are "obsolete". The letter said that since 2006, "11 Jews have been assassinated (and some tortured ) by radical Islamists because they were Jewish". The latest attack rocked France last month when two perpetrators stabbed an 85-year-old Jewish woman 11 times before setting her body on fire, in a crime treated as anti-Semitic.

Well , that hasn't gone down well with the Islamic population in France who rose to anger Monday who said their religion was being unfairly "put on trial". Dalil Boubakeur, rector of the Grand Mosque of Paris, said the manifesto "subjected French Muslims and French Islam to an unbelievable and unfair trial".
 "It creates a clear risk of pitching religious communities against one another,"
Tareq Oubrou, imam of the Grand Mosque of the southern city of the Bordeaux, pointed out that Islam was not the only religion whose ancient holy texts contain anachronistic passages.
 "Any number of holy texts are violent, even the Gospel," Oubrou said, adding that the signatories, who also included celebrities like actor Gerard Depardieu, had misinterpreted the Koran.
Anybody else notice how the faith which is promoted as magnanimous, caring and beyond approach , which demands others change their ways to accommodate their more odious practices ( Misogyny, Racism, Homophobia, Child abuse etc)  plays the victim card when asked to change. Why isn't that the actions of a ...bully.

Holland: Asylum seekers not happy to clean up their own living accommodation

(Alkmaar)  Asylum seekers in one centre in Holland are angry.  Boy are they angry.   It appears that whilst they are afforded separate living spaces, they share ablutions  and whereupon until last week the Government had a private cleaning company come in to clean up for these people seeking safety from intolerance the world over,  now they have to clean up behind them and they are making a huge stink about the whole affair.

You see the vast majority of residents don’t use toilet paper, rather they use their hands and water to clean themselves after they have used the toilet. Add the fact they don’t actually sit on the toilet, but squat on it and you find that excrement, cleaning water goes all over the place. But the best part until last week was a private cleaning company was paid to clean up the mess left behind. Well no more, now the residents have to clean up the mess they have made themselves. Not only that, but all the ablutions have had locks fitted and they can only be signed out on the deposit of 20 Euros in which to allow the management keep control and the natives aren’t happy.

Ahmad from Palestine
"The leadership wants us to scrub the toilets on our knees and then we are also forced to pay for a key They say I have to relax. But how can I relax if I cannot even shit without a key? . Give me a private toilet and I'll rub it from bottom to top. But I'm not going to clean up the shit of others.
Abu Barak from Syria:
'I'm in shock', Is this the Netherlands?
"Even the prisons in Syria are better!"

 It appears, that these poor people who have travelled through many countries in which to find asylum and safety aren't prepared to even to clean up behind themselves and feel that those below them should be doing this for them. I mean its not as if they are paying for anything are they?

Pounce: Bike ride.

I'm quite lucky in that I live out in the country. Today was a nice day , so I popped out for a bike ride. Here's a few snaps I took with my phone:

UK: Yet another Islamic rape gang jailed

(Burton-on-Trent) In the Midlands of the Uk . 3 Islamic males have been jailed over how they groomed and raped teenagers.

Taiyab Hussain, Shaheem Ratyal and Sohail Ali, all aged 19, and 18-year-old Mohammed Rizwan, were arrested after a teenager realised she had been groomed after watching a sex education video.

Police investigations revealed she wasn’t alone and that so far another 3 teenage victims have come forward, one a 13 year old child. What makes this story even more damning is the offences transpired between December 2016 and March 2017. 5 to 6 years after the prevalence of Islamic rape gangs came to the attention of media and the jailing of hundreds of Islamic males with a penchant for  little girls.  You’d think the message that shagging little girls is a big NO NO, but apparently not and now these mightly Islamic heroes can find out the hard way what it is like to be somebodies bitch in the Prison showers.

Just what is it about Muslims and raping little girls?

France: Algerian woman denied citizenship after she refused to shake the hand of an official.

(Paris) The highest administrative court in France has upheld the decision to deny a French passport to an Algerian Muslim who refused to shake hands with officials during her citizenship ceremony.

In 2016 the women was applying for French citizenship refused to shake hands with a senior official presiding over the citizenship ceremony as well as with a local politician. That act saw her bid to become French (and all the rights and benefits that come with it) thrown out of the window. She appealed calling it an “abuse of power” and that appeal has also been thrown out of the window.
The government said that her behaviour showed she was “not assimilated into the French community”, one of the reasons it could invoke under the civil code to deny citizenship for the spouse of a French national.

I’m all for people being different and having different ways, but when it impacts on the very fabric of society promoting and leading to religion taking precedent over the laws of the land which afford Liberté, égalité, fraternité to all then, I cannot understand why so many people who subscribe to a polarised religious way of life would want to become French in the first place. It would benefit us all if these people explained why?
