1. French MP rips Macron for attacking Nationalism while bowing to radical Islam
French President Emmanuel Macron’s attack on nationalism and its proponents during his speech at an Armistice Day observance in Paris has been received with mixed reviews, prompting one French MP to voice his disgust with Macron during a televised interview.
Appearing on LCI Direct, N. Dupont-Aignan, a member of the National Assembly representing the Debout la France party as its founder and president, said he felt “scandalized” by Macron’s brazen denouncement of nationalism while the president “closes his eyes” to radical Islam.
“I’m very shocked by the attitude of Emmanuel Macron,” Dupont-Aignan said, comparing Macron to “pacifist” French leaders during the interwar period who “closed their eyes to the threat of Hitler.”
“Emmanuel Macron is doing the same thing. He’s attacking the heads of democratic states — Hungary, Italy, America, Russia — and he closes his eyes to Islamic terrorism. I was scandalized yesterday.”
2. Here’s the anti-Semitism the media doesn’t want to mention
The 2018 midterm will bring many new faces to Washington, but few will find as much adoration as Ilhan Omar. One of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, Omar, who will represent Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, is a Somali refugee with a celebrity aura and an uplifting story.
What went curiously unmentioned in all the flattering post-election coverage, however, was that Omar, who replaces Keith Ellison — a former acolyte of anti-Semitic minister Louis Farrakhan — also has some exotic notions about the Jewish people.
In a 2012 tweet, for instance, the Democrat explained that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel. #Gaza #Palestine #Israel.”
Meanwhile, the other Muslim woman headed to Congress is Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants who wants to cut aid to the Jewish state because supporting it “doesn’t fit the values of our country.”

3. Nigerian asylum-seeker accused of attempted rape in Italy risks deportation
A 19-year-old Nigerian has been charged with sexual violence and resisting arrest after reportedly attempting to rape the director of the welcome center where he was staying in northern Italy.

8. Saudi Arabia declares all atheists are terrorists in new law to crack down on political dissidents
Saudi Arabia has introduced a series of new laws which define atheists as terrorists, according to a report from Human Rights Watch.
In a string of royal decrees and an overarching new piece of legislation to deal with terrorism generally, the Saudi King Abdullah has clamped down on all forms of political dissent and protests that could "harm public order.”
The new laws have largely been brought in to combat the growing number of Saudis travelling to take part in the civil war in Syria, who have previously returned with newfound training and ideas about overthrowing the monarchy.
To that end, King Abdullah issued Royal Decree 44, which criminalises "participating in hostilities outside the kingdom" with prison sentences of between three and 20 years, Human Rights Watch said.
9. Former Venezuelan political prisoner: “I saw men crucified”
Venezuelan student leader Lorent Saleh spent four years behind bars for peaceful resistance to the socialist regime of Nicolás Maduro. Released this month, he offered several interviews this week from his new home in Spain, describing in gruesome detail the wide variety of torture methods he experienced and saw in use during his imprisonment.
Saleh, a student opposition leader, was arrested in a wave of protests by peaceful anti-socialists in 2014 when he was 26. He spent four years in prison without a conviction, never having stood before a judge. His mother, Yamile, recently explained to media that Saleh was accused first of a crime for holding a sign reading “Chávez lies” in 2010 and, four years later, was arrested on charges of having brought Colombians into the country to protest Maduro.
Then-Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos extradited him, leading to four years of what he describes as gruesome torture that led him to attempt suicide four times.
