How 2014 proved there is nothing too silly, too intellectually vacuous, for educated feminists to embrace

A newspaper story out of liberated France tells of a brave campaign by feminists to coincide with the gift-giving season, and beautifully illustrates the sensitivity and devotion of truly dedicated social justice progressives.

That country’s feminist domestic legion — just to dissociate it from the more famous and, just possibly, even braver French Foreign Legion — has executed a brutally stupid nuisance campaign of inserting tiny leaflets into various Christmas toys imprinted with the harsh declarative, “This toy is sexist.” Sound the Dies Irae.

They do so, they are pleased to claim, to alert little boy kiddies when they get a train set, or little girl kiddies when they get a nurse doll, that they are being abused; that they are being shouldered into “stereotypes”; and that Santa (their parents) is confirming all the known “gender biases.” Finally — this is really good — their fortune-cookie sabotage is meant “to raise awareness … that toymakers and sellers play a part in the fact that not a single little girl asks Father Christmas for a sword.” (Absolutely my italics.)

Well, if there is a cause I want to join, endorse and publicize it is surely the impoverishment of a world where little girls don’t have, by right, cutlasses and rapiers, samurai steel and Toledo blades, with which to terrorize the domestic hearth and practice parry and thrust, hack and pierce, on the Christmas turkey — or more likely their weaponless male siblings.

Leftists Are as Guilty of Censorship as North Korea’s Dictator

Nobody should be surprised that the dictatorial ruler of North Korea would want to censor a film that offended him, or even that he would feel entitled to break the law by threatening reprisals against the offenders. His actions emulate those of hard-left feminists, radical Muslims, university administrators, and others who seek to prevent the publication or distribution of material they deem offensive.

Muslim Scholar Blames Porn for Jihad


Muslim scholar Hamza Yusuf, president of Zaytuna College in Berkeley, Calif., blamed pornography for the proliferation of jihadist violence during a Georgetown University panel discussion Monday about the status of Muslim minorities in non-Muslim countries.

Princeton University law professor Robert George moderated the panel, and Yusuf appeared onstage along with John Esposito, a Muslim Brotherhood defender who heads the Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Christian Muslim Understanding at the university.

After George noted that intelligence agents routinely find sexually explicit materials on laptops belonging to captured jihadists, Yusuf offered a theory in which young men “become deeply defiled” by the pornography habits and blame the West for providing the corrupting influences. They turn to jihad for religious purification and redemption.

“I really think that we underestimate the amount of people that have this experience of wanting to restore some kind of purity to themselves,” Yusuf said, “and the only restoration for them is blowing themselves up and get rid of the part that is the source of my defilement which is my body.”

Gift cards a money-laundering loophole

Police and money-laundering experts believe organized crime is using gift cards, along with prepaid credit cards, to launder at least some of their profits from drugs, fraud or other illegal activities in Canada, which various estimates peg at somewhere between $5-billion and $55-billion a year.

Modern-day slavery: Death toll among Qatar’s 2022 World Cup workers revealed

Nepalese migrants building the infrastructure to host the 2022 World Cup have died at a rate of one every two days in 2014 – despite Qatar’s promises to improve their working conditions, the Guardian has learned.

The figure excludes deaths of Indian, Sri Lankan and Bangladeshi workers, raising fears that if fatalities among all migrants were taken into account the toll would almost certainly be more than one a day.

Chinese university bans students from celebrating Christmas

A university in northwestern China has banned Christmas, calling it a ‘kitsch’ foreign celebration unbefitting of the country’s own traditions and making its students watch propaganda films instead, it’s been reported.

The state-run Beijing News said that the Modern College of Northwest University, located in Xian, had strung up banners around the campus reading ‘Strive to be outstanding sons and daughters of China, oppose kitsch Western holidays’ and ‘Resist the expansion of Western culture’.

A student told the newspaper that they would be punished if they did not attend a mandatory three-hour screening of propaganda films, which other students said included one about Confucius, with teachers standing guard to stop people leaving.

U.S. Attorney in Illinois: We’ve Gotten Intel ISIS Reaching Out to Ferguson Criminals

The U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Illinois said he’s received intel showing that ISIS is actively reaching out to the criminals in Ferguson who rioted, looted, and set buildings on fire. ISIS has been recruiting Americans (some less successfully than others), and according to Steve Wigginton, the chaos in Ferguson caught their attention.

He told KSDK that he’s received intelligence of ISIS trying to recruit Ferguson criminals, mostly on social media. They are, as Wigginton explained “encouraging Americans to join the people who are burning down buildings in Ferguson to engage in that conduct across America.”

Montreal man faces terrorism-related charges, police stations possible target

Jeffrey Zakir Mohammed Labelle was in a Montreal court for a bail hearing on Monday, facing charges related to terrorist activity; specifically, that he committed acts that could reasonably construed as terrorist acts between Sept. 1 and Dec. 19, 2014.

Police would not elaborate about any further possible charges that could come from Labelle’s preventative arrest.

Authorities said he was arrested on Friday after members of the man’s family reached out, concerned that he had become radicalized.

During their investigation, authorities said they found a map with locations of police stations marked on it in the man’s apartment.

A Christmas tradition where you get to bash your neighbour’s head in

B5J6T9WCUAAzyJT.png large

The procession to the fighting site starts with a high-pitched falsetto through the streets. The procession is family oriented as a preparation for the young children who will see the violent fights later on in the day. Children also dress up for the occasion, usually resembling their father’s character. The purpose of the fighting is to settle conflicts with an individual, friend, family member or to settle territorial conflicts that have come up throughout the year. The style of fighting used during the celebration is relatively similar to martial arts, which involves kicking, punching, and quickness of their movements. Those fighting call out their opponents by their first and last name. They then proceed to the middle of the circle and start the fight. The men fighting must wrap their hands with cloth before the fight. Biting, hitting those on the ground, or pulling hair is not allowed during the fight. The winner is selected based upon a knockout or intervention by the official. There are amateur officials who carry whips in order to maintain the crowd under control. At the start and at the end of the fight, the opponents must shake hands or give each other a hug. If the loser of the fight disagrees with the outcome, he or she can appeal for another fight. This type of fighting also exemplifies one’s level of manhood in the community of Santo Tomás.

Can’t find anyone in Hollywood to sign this petition:

On November 24 of this year, Sony Pictures was notified that it was the victim of a cyber attack, the effects of which is the most chilling and devastating of any cyber attack in the history of our country. Personal information including Social Security numbers, email addresses, home addresses, phone numbers and the full texts of emails of tens of thousands of Sony employees was leaked online in an effort to scare and terrorize these workers. The hackers have made both demands and threats. The demand that Sony halt the release of its upcoming comedy The Interview, a satirical film about North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Their threats vary from personal—you better behave wisely—to threatening physical harm—not only you but your family is in danger. North Korea has not claimed credit for the attack but has praised the act, calling it a righteous deed and promising merciless measures if the film is released. Meanwhile the hackers insist in their statement that what they’ve done so far is only a small part of our further plan. This is not just an attack on Sony. It involves every studio, every network, every business and every individual in this country. That is why we fully support Sony’s decision not to submit to these hackers’ demands. We know that to give in to these criminals now will open the door for any group that would threaten freedom of expression, privacy and personal liberty. We hope these hackers are brought to justice but until they are, we will not stand in fear. We will stand together.

Parliament Shooter Wasn’t a Lone Wolf

Early reports indicate that Man Haron Monis, who was behind yesterday’s deadly hostage crisis in Sydney, was an unbalanced man acting alone and not an agent of Islamic State, despite his demand for one of the group’s flags during the standoff. Many are seeing similarities between his actions and those of the gunman who stormed the Canadian Parliament in October. The New York Times said the incidents were caused by “a similar mix of personal disaffection and jihadist zealotry.”

But sometimes, early reports are later proved wrong. Several weeks after the Ottawa attack, Canada’s top law-enforcement official now says that gunman was not only inspired by Islamic State, he may have been in direct contact with the group.

Evidence of the occupation from 830BCE

Boy, those palis sure have been oppressed for a long time:

What’s significant about this stone — on view at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art as part of its “Assyria to Iberia at the Dawn of the Classical Age” exhibit running through January 4 — is its inscription: “the earliest extra-biblical reference to the House of David.”

“There is no doubt that the inscription is one of the most important artifacts ever found in relation to the Bible,” Eran Arie, curator of Israelite and Persian periods at the Israel Museum, wrote in the exhibit catalog.

As is to be expected with a rock nearly three millennia old, the slab is missing considerable portions, and Arie’s translation of the remaining 13 lines of text is full of ellipses and bracketed additions. What is clear is that the Aram-Damascene king Hazael brags of having killed 70 kings, including of Israel and of the “House of David”

Commentary Magazine Contentions Librarians for BDS: When Librarians Burn Books

Much has been written here at COMMENTARY and elsewhere regarding the boycott, divest, sanction (BDS) movement, its hypocrisy, and the anti-Semitic attitudes which too often seem to motivate some of its most vocal supporters.

That too many academics conflate scholarship with politics, and believe free speech trumps academic rigor is old news. There is nothing wrong nor intimidating about outsiders shining the limelight on professors who abuse their positions or on any scholarly ideas that those scholars put forth. After all, if professors’ research has been conducted with rigor, it will withstand criticism. But if it has not, then it should be subject to ridicule. Only in an Orwellian world is free speech synonymous with affirmation. And only to the immature or unprofessional must speech codes or stacked panels prevent disapproval.

Professors should be judged by their research and their teaching. University librarians should be held to another standard entirely. A university librarian’s purpose is to accumulate books, journals, and archival materials ranging the gambit of the field irrespective of their own personal politics, or the popular political directives of the day. Once they acquire those resources, a librarian should organize and ease access to it.

And yet, with this statement released by Middle Eastern Studies scholars and librarians endorsing the BDS call and seeking the boycott of Israeli academic institutions, librarians at some major universities are effectively embracing the notion that they will filter acquisitions according to their own political predilections. What librarians such as Mastan Ebtehaj at St. Antony’s College, Oxford University; Blair Kuntz at the University of Toronto; Mahmoud Omidsalar at California State University, Los Angeles; and Anais Salamon at McGill University are effectively saying is that they will not consider acquiring, cataloguing, or making available titles published by such Israeli scholarly presses such as Tel Aviv University Press, or the Truman Institute’s press. That may not literally be burning books, but how shameful it is for university librarians to do the figurative equivalent, filtering knowledge by whether or not they agree with the author or, as BDS demands, whether or not they like his or her nationality or that of the scholar’s publishing company.

UK foreign aid millions helped Iran hang 3,000… including women and children: Shocking report reveals how drugs war cash funded reign of terror

British aid has assisted the brutal execution of nearly 3,000 people accused of drug smuggling in Iran, according to a report to be released this week. The campaign group Reprieve says millions of pounds from British taxpayers can be linked to ‘control’ operations and hangings carried out by the hard-line Islamic regime.

Those killed – often in public, suspended from cranes after forced confessions, torture and secret trials – include women, children and political dissidents.

Sudan’s Bashir claims victory over ICC after court shelves Darfur probe

Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir claimed victory over the International Criminal Court on Saturday after it shelved further investigation of war crimes in Darfur, and reaffirmed his hard line on the rebel region.

The Hague-based court indicted Bashir in 2009 for war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide in suppressing the Darfur revolt.

But the court’s prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said on Friday she was shelving the Darfur investigation for lack of support from the Security Council, the UN body able to take coercive measures that could compel Bashir and co-defendants to face the court.

Anti-Zionist Jewish sect accused of dodging taxman for years: Court documents

An ultra-orthodox Jewish sect whose members fled Canada has been dodging the taxman for years, the Canada Revenue Agency says.

The tax agency alleges the Lev Tahor group used charities to evade $4.4 million in Quebec taxes, according to Federal Court documents obtained by QMI Agency.

About 200 members of the sect fled to Guatemala from Chatham, Ont., earlier this year amid allegations of child abuse north of Montreal, where they were based for years.

The Canada Revenue Agency has its eyes on Congregation Riminov, the group’s Quebec-based charity.

Pali terrorist throws acid on family, five wounded

The incident took place at the West Bank’s Tunnel’s Checkpoint between Hussan and Beitar Illit not far from Jerusalem, along Route 60.

According to witnesses, the terrorist sprayed the material on a group of damilies with young children and was then shot in his leg.

MDA paramedics arrived at the scene and administered first aid to five people, all from the same family, who were wounded by what appeared to be acid.

Of the wounded, three were young children aged 8-10 who suffered acid burn wounds to their limbs and suffered light wounds.

Another wounded was a 40-year-old man with acid wounds to the face and eyes, he was lightly wounded.


“The Liberal Party, especially Justin, is in bed with extremist and fundamental groups”

Nejib Belhaj-Chtioui Arrested On Terrorism-Related Charges In Montreal

A man arrested on terrorism-related charges will have a bail hearing Tuesday after an investigation police say was sparked by a Facebook posting.

Nejib Belhaj-Chtioui, 36, faces two charges relating to the terrorism hoax section of the Criminal Code — conveying information and committing an act to cause reasonable concern that it is connected to a terrorist activity.

Leftists become incandescent when reminded of the socialist roots of Nazism

The idea that Nazism is a more extreme form of conservatism has insinuated its way into popular culture. You hear it, not only when spotty students yell “fascist” at Tories, but when pundits talk of revolutionary anti-capitalist parties, such as the BNP and Golden Dawn, as “far Right”.

What is it based on, this connection? Little beyond a jejune sense that Left-wing means compassionate and Right-wing means nasty and fascists are nasty. When written down like that, the notion sounds idiotic, but think of the groups around the world that the BBC, for example, calls “Right-wing”: the Taliban, who want communal ownership of goods; the Iranian revolutionaries, who abolished the monarchy, seized industries and destroyed the middle class; Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who pined for Stalinism. The “Nazis-were-far-Right” shtick is a symptom of the wider notion that “Right-wing” is a synonym for “baddie”.

A Long-Sought Fugitive Died Four Years Ago in Syria, Nazi Hunter Says

A leading Nazi hunter said on Monday that Adolf Eichmann’s top lieutenant, long one of the world’s most wanted fugitives, died at least four years ago in Syria, where he had escaped justice and may have advised the government.

Efraim Zuroff, director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Israel office, said the lieutenant, Alois Brunner, was responsible for the deportation of 128,500 Jews to death camps, and described him as Eichmann’s “right-hand man.” Eichmann, one of the chief architects of the Holocaust, was apprehended, tried and executed by Israel in 1962.

Mr. Brunner was tried in absentia and sentenced to death by France in 1954, and he had been the subject of at least two assassination attempts attributed to the Mossad, the Israeli secret service.

“He was a notorious anti-Semite, sadist, fanatic Nazi,” Mr. Zuroff said in a telephone interview on Monday, after the British newspaper The Sunday Express reported his confirmation of Mr. Brunner’s death. “The only known interview we have with him was to a German news magazine in 1985, in which he was asked if he had any regrets, and he said, ‘My only regret is I didn’t murder more Jews.’ ”

As oil prices dive, Saudi Arabia looks to Israel for new market

Saudi Arabia is looking to expand its oil sales and would be willing to sell oil to any country that wants to buy it, including Israel, the country’s Minister of Petroleum Ali Al-Naimi told reporters at an OPEC summit in Vienna on Sunday.

“We do not hold a grudge against any nation and our leaders promote peace, religious tolerance and co-existence,” Al-Naimi was quoted as saying by the Kuwaita news agency KUNA. “His Majesty King Abdullah has always been a model for good relations between Saudi Arabia and other states – and the Jewish state is no exception.”

15-year-old accused of aiding terrorist group appears in Montreal court

The RCMP in Quebec said late Wednesday that a 15-year-old is facing charges under 83.181 of the Criminal Code — which involves leaving or attempting to leave Canada to participate in the activities of a terrorist group.

It is also alleged he committed robbery for the benefit of, or at the direction of, a terrorist group.

Sobibor: Polish visitors walk their pets and ride bikes while crunching human bones lying exposed on the grounds

During The Times of Israel’s visit to Sobibor on November 11 – Poland’s National Day – several visitors were observed picking through the newly dug out gas chamber remains – mostly bricks – and poking around in the sand with their feet.

To say that oversight and maintenance at Sobibor are below that of most public parks would be an understatement.

Each spring thaw, like clockwork for three generations now, the grounds literally spit out the most sensitive evidence of the Holocaust – the remains of Sobibor’s victims, in the form of hundreds of bone fragments — some the size of coins — left over from the Nazis’ attempt to destroy the evidence.

After victims’ bodies were burned in open-air crematorium, the remaining bones were ground down and tossed in with the ashes. New, often gleaming white bone fragments rise up each spring, easy to pick out among the incessant animal excrement and tire tracks.

Shurat Hadin charges US Presbyterian Church with having ties to Hezbollah

Shurat Hadin (the Israel Law Center) has filed a legal complaint against the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA), alleging violations of the US tax code for unlawful political lobbying and contact with Hezbollah, a US-designated terrorist organization.

The Tel Aviv-based organization publicized the submission of its 38-page complaint with the US Internal Revenue Service on Tuesday.

“It is high time the IRS took a long look at the Presbyterian Church and investigated its meeting with the designated- terrorist organization Hezbollah, its lobbying activities, and its anti-Israel divestment policies,” said Shurat Hadin spokesman attorney Robert Tolchin.

“The PCUSA is obsessed with attacking the Jewish state and has moved far from the activities which it presented to the IRS to secure its tax-free status in the United States.”

Shurat Hadin said it provided the IRS with “documentary and video evidence showing PCUSA delegates meeting with the US-designated terrorist group Hezbollah, publishing anti-Semitic materials, enacting a racist policy to divest from American companies doing business with Israel, lobbying the US Congress, and distributing political advocacy materials in violation of its tax-exempt status as a religious organization.”

8 ways to deal with Arab violence, as proposed by Israel’s ruling party

Unfortunately, this bill won’t pass:

At the behest of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, his political allies in the Israeli parliament are preparing a sweeping legislative package designed to deter terror attacks.

The measures are aimed both at preventing assaults against Israeli citizens, like the one that took place last week in a Jerusalem synagogue, leaving five people dead, and at allaying the feelings of insecurity felt by Israelis over the past few months.

The action plan includes new, harsh measures that its sponsors say will get at the root of assaults by Palestinians.  The law would allow Arab Israelis found guilty of throwing Molotov cocktails and even firecrackers to be banished to Gaza; would deny families of assailants the right to bury their dead; and would expose anyone who waved a Palestinian flag at a demonstration to loss of their health and social security benefits.

The package was drawn up by Yariv Levin, chairman of the Likud Party faction in the Knesset. Netanyahu is the leader of Likud.

“The bill would apply to everyone,” Levin said — to every Israeli citizen, of any religion, including Jews — and those who hold residency permits, who are mostly the Palestinian residents of Jerusalem. “But obviously, the main problem is with the Arabs. The families and the leadership support what they have done and talk about them as heroes, they name squares and streets after them, pay salaries to those who carry out attacks.”

More than 20 percent of Israeli citizens are Arabs.

The program, whether it passes in whole or part, shows the extent the Israeli government may be willing to go to confront Palestinian attacks in Israel.

Levin’s office provided a summary of the planned legislation. The following is a condensed translation of the Hebrew original:

Pali terror attack of the day

The sickest part of this story? The jihadi bitch was shot and is being treated in an Israeli hospital. For the love of all that is good and holy, SHOOT TO KILL THESE ANIMALS:

An Israeli civilian was lightly injured after being stabbed with a knife by a Palestinian woman near the Gush Etzion junction.

Security forces at at the military post opened fire at the attacker, shooting and injuring her. The attacker has been taken to the Hadassah University Medical Center in Ein Kerem for medical treatment.

Magen David Adom paramedics provided treatment to an Israeli civilian who did not require hospitalization.

The 20-year-old Palestinian who was shot is in serious condition, a paramedic said.

The IDF closed off the area and was searching for the vehicle that dropped off the attacker at the junction.
