3. EU ARMY has to HAPPEN: Germany's “next chancellor” demands Euro armed force
GERMANY’S new Christian Democrat leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer has called for the creation of a European army amid growing global instability caused by sabre-rattling leaders in Russia, China and the US.
Angela Merkel’s successor used a speech in Brussels to outline a key CDU party campaign theme with European Parliament elections coming up in May. Ms Kramp-Karrenbauer warned the EU would be left trailing behind global superpowers Russia, China and the USA unless it stepped up to the plate militarily. She also predicted the EU’s external borders would need extra protection for many decades to come in the face of a sustained migrant crisis.
4. Sweden admits it cannot control its own borders
The chief of Sweden’s National Border Police has sounded the alarm on the ability of his force to do its job — even to the low standard required by the European Union under its Schengen zone open borders agreement.
Former Europol top cop and Swedish police superintendent Patrik Engström made the warning when he said the Border Police that he commands did not have enough resources to adequately patrol the 102 border crossings and ports nationwide. A Swedish newspaper has claimed the nation is short of 500 border officers to do the job adequately, but Engström declined to discuss specific numbers, Sweden Radio reports.
Engström said: “…the border police’s mission is not resourced to meet Schengen’s requirements for border control… It is a work that is carried out in all seven regions of the police. What is needed, without entering the exact number, is more staff to be able to carry out the external border control that the EU requires. It is about being able to conduct control at both large and small border crossing points.”

6. Muslim shouted “Allah is God” as he attacked disabled Christian
A Muslim who spat at a disabled Christian preacher has been jailed for more than four years for attacking volunteers as they gave out food to the homeless. Ali Al-Hindawi, 23, shouted “Allah is God” at wheelchair-bound Claudio Bogge before threatening him and spitting at him. The evangelical preacher, who was handing out leaflets for his local church, told the incensed Al-Hindawi: “I love you because Jesus loves you.” Al-Hindawi then carried out another vicious assault on a Christian volunteer.
7. Egyptian babies get blue ribbons as parents say “no” to female genital mutilation
Doctors at two Cairo hospitals will pin blue ribbon badges to the clothing of newborn baby girls on Wednesday as they launch a campaign to persuade parents in Egypt to "say no to female genital mutilation.”
The country has the highest number of women affected by FGM in the world, with nearly nine in 10 having been cut, according to U.N. data.
Parents will receive the badges – which resemble the Arabic word "no" and look like an upside down version of awareness ribbons for HIV/AIDS and breast cancer - after signing a pledge that they will not have their daughters cut.
Activists hope more hospitals will join the campaign, which launches on International Day of Zero Tolerance for FGM.
FGM was banned in Egypt in 2008 and criminalised in 2016, but the practice persists, with most procedures now carried out by health professionals.
8. NJ Imam: Liberals are trying to force Muslims to adopt liberalism, allow them to insult Muhammad
New Jersey-based Imam Mateen Khan said during a lecture at the Muslim Center of Middlesex County, NJ, (MCMC) that liberalism is a philosophy that requires everybody to adopt it, and that holds that those who don't accept liberalism are a threat. Giving the example of Afghanistan, which he said the U.S. invaded under the pretext of empowering Afghani women, Khan said that those who don't accept liberalism are forced to accept it with the pretext of women's rights, LGBT rights, and combating intolerance. He said that liberals want Muslims to allow them to exercise their freedom of speech to insult the Prophet Muhammad. Later in the lecture, Khan said that the Jews in Europe had been hated and used as a scapegoat because Europeans were antisemitic. He then claimed that some Israeli psychologists had written that the Zionists had successfully convinced the Europeans to hate the Arabs and Palestinians – who he explained are also Semitic – instead of the Jews, by telling them that the Palestinians are the backwards, monotheistic Semites who should really be hated. The lecture was uploaded to MCMC's YouTube channel on December 30, 2018.

10. India to exclude Muslims from new refugee bill
The Indian government is on its way to changing its citizenship laws. The Citizenship Amendment Bill makes it easier for refugees from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh to, in essence, become Indian. But there is a catch, the new law will exclude Muslim refugees. Besides the Indian government is standing strong on another key issue: Identifying and repatriating Rohingya Muslims against the urgings of the United Nations, which has stressed repeatedly that conditions in Myanmar aren't safe to return to. India is increasingly taking the line that the Rohingya are not refugees, but illegal immigrants. Hundreds are trying to flee to Bangladesh to avoid detention or deportation. But they're not wanted there either.
