1. Six men, not described in any way whatsoever, beat a man seriously in Toronto on Friday for being gay. There is video of the attack, but it is not shown:
2. Muslims celebrate a Shiia ritual in Bonn Germany:
Same event in Manchester, UK:
Given that one of the most historically significant events in Spanish history is la Reconquista, one may be tempted to modify the old adage to:
"Those who forget the lessons of history will be lucky indeed if they are even able to repeat them.".
Counter-terrorism police in the northern Spanish cities of Gijón and San Sebastián on Tuesday arrested two suspects described as being “fully integrated” into the so-called Islamic State jihadist militant group (ISIS).
The suspect arrested in Gijón is a Spanish citizen of Moroccan origin, while the man detained in San Sebastián is a resident of Spain, also with a Moroccan background, according to the Interior Ministry.
4. Another event in Spain this week: A migrant faking a heart attack created the diversion needed to allow 67 illegals to escape from a holding facility, injuring five workers in the escape.
In the video below, you can see the manhunt for the missing illegal escapees. The video is in Spanish but the story is detailed here.
Some 70 foreigners without residence permits who were being held in the Sangonera la Verde centre near the southeastern city of Murcia managed to escape on Wednesday evening.
"One of the foreigners first pretended to be ill, and when the ambulance came to take him away, the others rose up in mutiny," a police spokeswoman told AFP.
"More than half of the foreigners who fled have been returned to the centre. Twenty-eight are still missing."
Not all Western media however; The Rebel dealt with it factually and honestly.
BUDAPEST, Hungary — Hungarian government spokesman Zoltán Kovács has criticised Western Media for their coverage of Hungarian political affairs, accusing them of uncritically reproducing information broadcast by minor opposition movements in the country and exercising an ignorance of Hungary in their coverage.
An overwhelming majority of voters rejected the mandatory migrant redistribution plans of the European Union (EU) in Hungary on Sunday, with 98 per cent voting to reject the bloc’s plan.
This is one of those stories that is far more important than one might think just glancing at the headline.
Freedom of speech itself was crafted to allow for the criticism, and even ridicule, of political and religious authority.
Once either of those becomes above criticism, then not just freedom of speech is crushed, but freedom itself is heading for the exit.
Nazih Khatatba, editor-in-chief of the Mississauga-based Meshwar newspaper, revealed that “people affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood movement and Islamic political organizations” have recently carried out a personal smearing campaign against him that included “pressures, incitement and distortion of facts.”
In his editorial (Meshwar, Issue 165, September 16, 2016, p. 5), Khatatba said that he was slammed over posting an article entitled “The journey of Zoroaster on the back of a horse to the heavens.”
Even though the article has nothing to do with Islam and Mohammad, Khatatba, a Palestinian-born Muslim, was accused of implicitly insulting Islam and Muslims.
Insulting Islam and/ or Mohammad is one of the major sins in Islam. Said Rageah, Imam and an instructor for the AlMaghrib Institute (Toronto), implicitly justified the death penalty for apostates and those who insult the prophets.
Montreal Imam Ahmed Kandilsaid that “those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger… be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides.”
7. US considers retaliation after Iranian proxy army, the Houthi rebels, fire on a US warship in international waters.
First the event:
Asked if that could mean retaliatory strikes against those responsible for firing the missiles, Davis said, “Those things are things that we’re looking at.”
“We want very much to get to the bottom of what happened,” said Davis. “We're going to find out who did this, and we'll take action accordingly.”
Davis would not confirm that targets for possible retaliatory strikes are being developed.
He did not directly say who was responsible for the missile firings but noted that was something "we’re looking at very hard right now.”
"We will get to the bottom of this and we will make sure that anybody who interferes with freedom of navigation or anybody who puts U.S. navy ships at risk does so at their own peril,” said Davis.
The Houthis are as much an Iranian proxy as is Hizb'allah. The US engaging them militarily will add some complexity to the already complex situation in the Middle East.
("ISIS" is the government-media complex term for the Islamic State, used as an attempt to delink the Islamic State from anything to do with the religion of Islam.)
Cops swooped on the women at an apartment on September 8 near Boussy-Saint-Antoine, Essonne outside Paris after tracing their movements by phone.
According to reports the women, who were using the messaging app Telegram, were also responsible for an attempt to blow up a car outside Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on September 7.
It is alleged they were colluding to attack a Jewish synagogue using home made motolov cocktails as well as attack police officers with knives.
Note: she took her children with her to join the Islamic State, and subsequent to her arrest, France gave the two she had with her first husband back to him, but took the child she had with her Muslim husband into state care.
