1. Bulgaria probing NZ shooter's Balkan visit

Bulgarian authorities are investigating possible contacts the Australian man suspected of killing 49 people in two New Zealand mosques may have had when he recently visited the Balkans.

The shooter posted a video of the attack in which a Serb nationalist song from the Bosnian war in the 1990s can be heard. He also wrote the names of historical figures and places from Bulgaria, Serbia and Montenegro on his weapons.

Local news portal quoted Bulgarian state prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarev as saying the Australian had visited Bulgaria between November 9 and 15 last year on a flight from Dubai, according to Bulgarian intelligence.

Tsatsarev's comments came after a meeting with Prime Minister Boyko Borisov and other top security officials, the novinite.com news portal reported.

CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand -- At least 50 people were shot to death at two mosques during midday prayers Friday - most if not all of them gunned down by an immigrant-hating white supremacist who apparently used a helmet-mounted camera to broadcast live video of the slaughter on Facebook.

One man was arrested and charged with murder. Brenton Harrison Tarrant appeared in court Saturday morning amid strict security and showed no emotion when the judge read him one murder charge. The judge said "it was reasonable to assume" more such charges would follow.

Two other armed suspects were taken into custody while police tried to determine what role, if any, they played in the cold-blooded attack that stunned New Zealand, a country so peaceful that police officers rarely carry guns. One woman was released without charges and a second man was charged with weapons offenses unrelated to the shooting, police said Saturday.

3. PM Netanyahu on the exposure of the Hezbollah Golan terror network

This morning Israel exposed a Hezbollah terror network on the Golan Heights. Hezbollah is a terror organization. It's a proxy of Iran. It does Iran's bidding and this terror network is part of Iran's aggression against Israel.

So I have a clear message for Iran and for Hezbollah: Israel knows what you're doing; Israel knows where you're doing it. What we've uncovered today is just the tip of the iceberg. We know a lot more.

Israel will continue to do all that's necessary to defend itself. We will continue to use all means, overt and covert, to block Iran's effort to use Syria, Lebanon and Gaza as forward bases for attacking Israel.


4. Norway prosecutor: Rapper’s “F**king Jews” slur could be criticism of Israel

JTA — A Norwegian rapper who cursed Jews while performing at an event in Oslo promoting multiculturalism will not be charged with hate speech because his words may have been criticism of Israel, prosecutors said.

Kaveh Kholardi said “f***ing Jews” on stage at an event last year for which he was hired by the city.

Tor-Aksel Busch, Norway’s director of public prosecutions — a title equivalent to attorney general – rejected legal action last week, the news site Document.no reported Sunday. [...]

On June 10, 2018, five days before the concert, Kholardi wrote on Twitter “f***ing Jews are so corrupt.”

6. Islamic State counter-attacks out of final Syria enclave fall short: U.S.-backed SDF

BAGHOUZ, Syria (Reuters) - Islamic State launched two counter attacks on U.S.-backed fighters besieging their final shred of territory in eastern Syria on Wednesday but were beaten back without any progress, the Syrian Democratic Forces said.

The jihadists, waging a last-ditch battle in Baghouz, a collection of hamlets and farmland near the Iraqi border, dispatched suicide bombers against SDF fighters, who thwarted the attacks, the U.S.-backed force said.

Islamic State launched the second counter-attack in the afternoon, “(taking) advantage of smoke and dust over Baghouz”, the SDF media office said. “Fighting is still continuing. (Islamic State) made no progress so far and were stopped.”

There were no SDF casualties. “They attempted to carry out suicide attacks but failed,” the SDF said.

7. France: Rally in Paris denounces suicide rate among police officers

Members of police unions and associations gathered at the Place du Trocadero in Paris on Tuesday, to raise awareness of suicides among officers.

Since the beginning of the year, 18 police officers have committed suicide, according to Guillaume Lebeau, the president of the association 'Mouvement des policiers en colere.' In 2018, 89 members of the French police took their own lives, according to media reports citing police unions.

Demonstrators say stressful working conditions and scarce resources have contributed to the deaths, by increasing pressure on police officers.


8. Iraqi asylum seeker denies raping girl, 14, but admits murdering her “after consensual sex” in case that sparked anti-migrant protests across Germany, as trial begins

An Iraqi asylum seeker has confessed to murdering a 14-year-old girl but says they had consensual sex, in a case which has rocked Germany.

Ali Bashar, 22, fled to northern Iraq after the death of Susanna Maria Feldman in May 2018 in Wiesbaden, but was captured and brought back.

“My vision went black and then it happened,” Bashar told the court today through an interpreter. “I don't know how it could have happened.”

His trial for the rape and murder of Ms Feldman started on Monday under tight security in Wiesbaden.

Around a dozen people held a vigil for the victim outside the courthouse.

For the murder alone, Bashar faces a likely life prison term, which in Germany usually translates to 15 years behind bars.

He denied rape and claimed in court that the two had consensual sex before she fell, got angry and threatened to call the police.

To Germany's far right, Bashar, who is also accused of twice raping an 11-year-old girl in a separate case, has become a symbol of the threat allegedly posed by a wave of mostly Middle Eastern newcomers.

9. Amnesty International denounces rape of Yemeni boys by Saudi-backed militiamen

According to an Amnesty International report, Yemeni boys have been raped inside mosques under militia rule.

Rabat – Boys as young as eight have been raped in the war-torn Yemeni city of Ta’iz, said Amnesty International in a new report. The suspected perpetrators, who include Saudi-backed militiamen, have yet to be held accountable.

Amnesty reported the rape of three boys and the sexual assault of a fourth in Ta’iz in the past eight months. The families of all four boys reported the cases to the Criminal Investigations Department, but authorities have yet to take action.

In two of the four cases, families claim that the perpetrators were members of Islahi-backed militias.

Al-Islah is a Yemeni Islamist party which acts in support of the Saudi-led Coalition and Yemeni government. The party controls large portions of local authorities in Ta’iz.

10. Georgia woman accused of helping build “kill lists” of servicemembers for ISIS-linked group

ATLANTA Ga. (Tribune News Service) — Authorities arrested a 20-year-old woman south of Augusta on Tuesday for allegedly supporting an Islamic State-linked group that has called for killing thousands of people in the New York City area, including U.S. troops.

Three years ago, Kim Anh Vo — who also goes by “Zozo,” “Miss.Bones” and “Kitty Lee” — allegedly joined the United Cyber Caliphate, an online group that has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, the U.S. Justice Department announced in a news release. The organization, according to the federal agency, is “committed to carrying out online attacks and cyber intrusions against Americans.”

Since Vo joined the group, Justice Department officials said, it and its subgroups have disseminated online “kill lists,” identifying U.S. servicemembers and U.S. State Department workers. One such list from April 2016 identified about 3,600 people in the New York City area, declaring “We Want them #Dead.”

“Victor Laszlo” is a fine name. As I mentioned earlier there is a long tradition in literature and journalism of pseudonyms of pen names. No reason to get riled up. If the writer has something good to say it will emerge.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

My father’s grandfather William “Jock” Craig was executive secretary of the Nova Scotia Separatist Party…which he quit when it became the federal Liberal Party of Canada. Using a card press loaned to him by Pletheric McCurdy he published political pamphlets under the pseudonym “Will the Ranter of Craiglee” which he distributed as he did his rounds as postmaster of Halifax.

He was the ghostwriter of speaches that Joseph Howe and Charles Tupper became famous for delivering.

I used to blog and troll for MGTOW under a pseudonym…until the danger of my rice bowl getting broken was past…I don’t care about getting doxed…bring it on…you won’t come back from Copperhead Road….;-)

Then perhaps you can relate to my distain for Count Leopold Sacher-Masoch von Lemberg…author of Venus in Furs and from whom we get the term “MASOCHISM” which has been changed in Orwellian newspeak to “male feminist”.

I don’t know if the curriculum has changed since I was in university, but it was required reading in womyn’s studies.

Glen Craig, when you put the name “Victor Laszlo” in quotation marks I thought you were wondering who he really is. There is a long tradition of writers using pseudonyms or a ‘nom de plume’. It is one way of expressing oneself.
His anti-Semitism is not to be misunderstood as anti-Jewish. Semites in the full sense are those whose cultural or linguistic background is Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic, or Amharic. Like his namesake from Casablanca, our Victor Laszlo sees himself as anti-fascist, and is virulent in his efforts.
Unfortunately, also like his namesake, there is a apparent self-loathing—that somehow his own background is dirty and must be cleansed, even if by fire.

Glenn Craig, “Victor Lazlo” is a pseudonym for James Cohen, a one-time Ottawa musician. The Rebel does not normally allow anonymous contributors, but Cohen is recognized as a dependable and regular contributor. He is a bitterly anti-semitic, even though he himself is of Jewish background.

Actually Jay I couldn’t care less…I watch “Brother Nathaniel” as well. The whole leftist thing of dismissing what people say (which is factual) because of some real or perceived or slanderous misrepresentation of their political incorrectness is BULLSHIT…facts are facts..it doesn’t matter who presents them.

Yup, Victor is bitterly anti-semitic, alright. That is why you never see him say a hateful thing about Jews. It’s a ruse, you see, anti-semite hide their anti-semitism and that is how you know they are anti-semites- because you never see it. Lack of evidence is a display of evidence. The only way you can be a legitimate non-anti-semite is to be Leftist who openly displays their anti-semitism. Then you’re as pure as the driven snow.

It’s like Tommy Robinson. His claims that he is not a racist or islamophobe are proof that he is both. And his calls for evidence to prove him to be the above mentioned are further evidence that he is both.

His hateful rants are legitimate. In his view the world is a disaster and he has to blame someone. He does not normally blame the Jews, but turns to their nearest neighbours (Muslims) and demonizes them.

His contributions to The Rebel are almost daily, and he is fairly consistent in his content. Although this is not his intention, he is used by The Rebel to build up a sense of urgency, including the need to raise funds right now.

I don’t know if “Victor Lazlo” is on ROBERT (not Richard) SPENCER’S mailing list for JIHAD WATCH…often they seem in sync…but if VICTOR LAZLO ever finds himself lacking in material ROBERT would be glad to fill that gap so that there never needs to be a slow news day…and believe me …on JIHAD WATCH that rarely happens.

At this point I suppose that attacks on Christians and christian churches (in the name of Islam) are so everyday commonplace that they really aren’t newsworthy whereas ’KUFFAR" retaliations ARE…that the news reporting imballance is …if not justifyable…at least explainable…

Oh BTW….some 3000 Yazidi “sex slaves” are missing and mass graves are being sought.

#4. Norway prosecutor: Rapper’s “F**king Jews” slur could be criticism of Israel

Does that means: somebody uttering “F*** muslims or calling for destruction of islam” could actually be just criticizing saudi arabia??
