Assuming double time and a half for union police in France, the cost of defending indigenous French citizens from the Muslim ones they let in becomes crippling.
France will deploy tens of thousands of soldiers and police officers during Christmas and New Year’s celebrations, its interior minister said, adding that the terrorist threat “is high” in the wake of recent attacks.
“For the end of year festivities, and especially Christmas weekend, there will be more than 91,000 members of the security forces deployed including members of the national police, national gendarmes and soldiers, as part of Operation Sentinel,” Interior Minister Bruno Le Roux said.
2. Australian politician, Pauline Hanson, speaks out on the foiled mass casualty terror event in Australia set for Christmas day.
3. The UN security council passed a resolution against the building of homes for Jewish people in Judea and Samaria.
Here is a CBC article on the vote which took place today. One which Obama made sure was passed, by having the US, in the form of Samantha Power, abstain from the vote.
The Obama administration allowed the UN Security Council to adopt a resolution Friday demanding an end to Israeli settlements, defying pressure from U.S. president-elect Donald Trump as well as Israel and several U.S. senators who urged Washington to use its veto.
The resolution was put forward at the 15-member council for a vote on Friday by New Zealand, Malaysia, Venezuela and Senegal a day after Egypt withdrew it under pressure from Israel and Trump.
Israel and Trump had called on the United States to veto the measure. It was adopted with 14 votes in favour, to a round of applause. [...]
The resolution demanded that Israel "immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem" and said the establishment of settlements by Israel has "no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law."
When Muslims build homes anywhere in the world it is their legal right to do so as anyone can live on any property they buy. Apparently not so for Jews in Jerusalem, Judea or Samaria.
Anti-Semitism is turning some of Britain's top universities into no-go zones for Jewish students, according to a top peer.
Baroness Ruth Deech, who once held the highest office for dealing with student complaints, said the situation stems from institutions failing to curb a perceived hatred of Jews because vice chancellors are afraid of offending potential investors from the Gulf.
As a result, the peer said Jewish students are gradually getting a feeling universities such as Manchester, Exeter, SOAS and Southampton are places they should avoid, which could be perceived as anti-Semitic.
(Perhaps if she talked to any Jewish students at Concordia in Montreal, or dozens of other universities with Muslim Students Associations in North America, she would be able to say this with less cautious language.)
An Al Jazeera news producer has been arrested in Egypt over accusations of attempting to overthrow the government and being a member of the banned Muslim Brotherhood. [...]
State security also stormed the homes of Hussein's two brothers and arrested them. [...]
The Qatar based propaganda agency, Al Jazeera, has been linked to advancing Muslim Brotherhood agendas by many agencies, and repeatedly by Al Sisi's government in Egypt.
Lastly for a little fun, earlier in December, a Danish citizen made a fun little video where he dressed up as an Islamic State terrorist, carried an IS flag and a fake pistol and walked back and forth across the German-Danish border to prove that really, there isn't a border at all. Just a token attempt to show they are defending their people.
