Top 10: Quebec government tables secularism law

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

1. Quebec government tables secularism law

The Coalition Avenir Québec government is proposing a new law that would prohibit public workers in positions of authority from wearing religious symbols such as a hijab, kippa or turban.

2. Fort McMurray’s Muslim community plans an ambitious, multicultural mosque

It's a $50-million, 10-acre complex – a brand new home for Fort McMurray's Muslim community, breaking ground this spring. As Colin Freeze reports, it's also an experiment in multicultural Islam on an unprecedented scale.

3. Rescued Libyan Migrants hijack tanker, sail to Malta

A tanker ship rescued more than a hundred migrants from their vessel off the coast of Libya, but before the ship could dock in Tripoli, the migrants apparently hijacked the ship. The ship later docked in Malta and the migrants were arrested by local police.

Maltese armed forces arrest a number of migrants after taking control of a tanker that had been hijacked by migrants off Libya, who reportedly forced the captain to take change course and head towards Europe.

4. Migrant crisis: Border Force stop two boats at Dover -day after 14 people found in Channel

Two boats carrying up to 19 migrants have been found off the coast of Kent a day after 14 people including two children were brought ashore.

A Border Force team spotted the vessels sailing towards Britain this morning and alerted Kent Police at around 4.15am. Police confirmed they were made aware of the discovery near the Port of Dover and added officers were not needed at the scene. The BBC reported the pair of boats in the English Channel were carrying 19 people. The Home Office has been contacted for comment.

The discovery comes after 11 men, one woman and two children were found trying to enter the UK illegally on Wednesday.

5. Trump says FBI, DOJ will review “outrageous” Jussie Smollett case

"It is an embarrassment to our Nation!" Trump said of prosecutors dropping charges against Smollett.

President Donald Trump tweeted Thursday morning that the FBI and Department of Justice would review the decision by Illinois prosecutors to drop all charges facing actor Jussie Smollett for allegedly fabricating a hate crime.


6. Trump signs executive order to protect Americans from EMP attacks

President Donald Trump issued an executive order on March 26 to harden America’s critical infrastructure against electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attacks.

Experts from the congressional EMP Commission have long called for such action, warning that an EMP could break America’s electrical grid and result in the eventual deaths of 90 percent of the U.S. population. Such an EMP could occur either from a natural solar storm, or, if an adversary detonated a nuclear bomb high above the United States.

Trump’s executive order takes a number of aggressive steps to safeguard the United States. In contrast to previous highly limited actions taken by the Department of Homeland Security, such as their paper last October with vague calls for further research, Trump’s executive order calls for specific action to be taken on set deadlines.

7. Germany: Muslim kindergarten loses appeal against closure

State officials had ordered “Al Nur” to close following revelations that inappropriate literature had been shared at the kindergarten. The day care center is the only Muslim kindergarten in Rhineland-Palatinate.

The only Muslim kindergarten in the western state of Rhineland-Palatinate lost its appeal to stay open after an administrative court confirmed state officials' concerns about the school's ties to an Islamist ideology.

The state's decision to revoke Al Nur kindergarten's license was lawful because evidence showed links between the school's administrators and the extremist Salafist ideology, an administrative court in the city of Mainz said.

The court said the links made it difficult for children at Al Nur to integrate into German society and compromised their independence.

The court said efforts by Arab Nil-Rhein, the association that runs the kindergarten, to distance itself from Salafist thought were “not convincing.”

8. “It would be better if they had died in battle”: Danish justice minister on returning Syria fighters

Denmark has convicted 13 people for travelling to Syria to take part in armed conflict. Nine have been sentenced to deportation from the country, according to Minister of Justice Søren Pape Poulsen. [...]

The minister stressed that Denmark is unable to deny re-entry into the country to its own citizens, even if they have participated as militants in conflicts on foreign soil.

“The fact is that we cannot prevent Danish citizens from coming to Denmark, and that includes foreign fighters. The threat from returning foreign fighters is serious – that is obvious,” he said.

“It would have been better if they had died in battle, but unfortunately, not all of them did,” the minister added.

Police security agency PET has estimated that 150 people have, since 2012, travelled from Denmark to Iraq or Syria to take part in wars there.

9. Driver sentenced to life for ramming 17 people in Australia

An Islamic State group sympathizer who rammed a car into pedestrians on a busy Australian city sidewalk, killing one person and injuring 16 others, was sentenced on Thursday to life in prison.

Victoria state Supreme Court Justice Elizabeth Hollingworth ordered Saeed Noori, 37, to serve 30 years behind bars before he is eligible for parole.

Hollingworth said it was “sheer good fortune” that more people were not killed or injured.

“Deliberately driving a vehicle into a crowd of people is a dreadful crime,” the judge said. “Your actions have horrified and traumatized many people.”

Noori drove his mother's SUV into pedestrians on Dec. 21, 2017, outside a train station in downtown Melbourne, Australia's second-largest city.

10. Italy: Legitimate-defence law approved

(ANSA) - Rome, March 28 - The Senate on Thursday gave final approval to the government's law expanding the right to legitimate self defence. It was approved by the Upper House on its third reading with 201 votes in favour, 38 against and six abstentions.

The lawmakers from the parties supporting Premier Giuseppe Conte's government, the League and the 5-Star Movement (M5S), applauded as the legislation got the definitive green light. The bill expanding the right to self-defence from intruders, fashioned by Interior Minister and League leader Matteo Salvini, introduces norms similar to US "stand your ground" laws.

“This is a great day for Italians,” said Salvini, who recently courted controversy by visiting in jail a businessman who made a would-be thief kneel and shot and injured him in the chest.

“After years of chatter and polemics we have enshrined the sacrosanct right of legitimate self defence for those who are attacked in their homes, in their bars, and in their restaurants,” he said.

“The Wild West is not being legitimised, but we are on the side of decent and respectable citizens.”

Salvini has long campaigned for a law allowing self-defence in all cases and has repeatedly sided with business people and other citizens who have been prosecuted for excessive self defence under the previous law.

All due, of course, to that Third Pillar of Leftiedom- the unwillingness to exercise discernment. "

Not sure I follow. Could you explain in terms you think I’d understand how you came to this conclusion?

China could cause serious damage to NZ’s tourism based economy. Without oil and gas (exploration banned by Ardern) or major industry NZ relies heavily on Tourism. In the past few years several new airline routes have opened up between China and NZ, for example China Southern brings a plane load of Chinese tourists each day to Christchurch to explore the South Island. Chinese seldom travel independently but as large groups. Trump may have some leverage over China but certainly not Canada and definitely not New Zealand.

Jacinda Ardern is in China and apparently she is going to discuss China’s treatment of Muslims,is the NZ PM the new advocate for Muslims now. Ardern you are a disgusting UN puppet,you sold your country out to Islam and now you think you can tell other countries how they should treat Muslims-go get bent you dope. If you had any brains you wouldn’t be telling China how to treat Muslims,our idiot PM tried the same crap with his lgbtq and his gender bs and look where it got us!!! Ardern you are another UN piece of trash go pound sand!!!

2: Muslim community plans a multicultural mosque? Besides being a contradiction in of itself, it will be multicultural until the day it opens=; after that it will be serious Islam.

3: Its piracy. Hang ’em high.

4: Illegals arriving and the police are not needed. Welcome to Canada! Oh wait, its the UK. All is lost…

8: Now there is an example for Baby Doc Trudeau to follow.

“The government and Danish People’s Party (DF) have agreed new rules that will enable authorities to withdraw passports from individuals found to have fought for militant groups abroad.”

We need a law like that! Oh wait, we did, but our Idiot in Chief, Dumber Than A Rock Trudeau, overturned that law.

9: Finally, a reasoned sentence. No guarantee he will ever get parole, which is a good thing. No concern for a “mental defect” defence, no care for his damaged childhood, This should be the basic sentence for anyone committing an act of terrorism, if not execution.

10: Now that is what I would term enlightened. Your home should be safe, and there should be consequences for attacking someone anywhere, including violence to protect yourself,

In Canada, if you do protect yourself you somehow end up in court or prison for longer than the home invader or attacker. Great system we have here, if you are a criminal.

I’m quite pleased to see that Quebec is applying the secularism evenly, including the Jesus-nuts. They’re even saying they’ll take down the cross in the parliament chamber since it’s definitely not secular.

Mark Chadwick,
well said.
I sent an email to Ford a few weeks ago suggesting he send all these illegals back to quebec and let trudeau deal with it.
I have NO INTENTIONS of Paying for them and currently are looking to more venues which are private and don’t charge taxes!
I get NOTHING FOR FREE HERE NOR DO I EXPECT IT! I am Canadian born of the founding fathers and whose ancestors/family have throughout our short history, laid their lives on the line for us, our country, our freedoms,democracy and so on.
How the hell did he ever become prime minister- for so many years and worse how the hell did this psychopathic nazi spawn of his get elected??
are canuks as stunned as the world is now suggesting??
KInd of makes one wonder WHOM is paying their air fare , now doesn’t it??
Enough, canada NO LONGER IS A NATION because we have no borders and no laws pertaining to them (except for canuks vacationing and shopping outside canada) therefore there is NO NEED FOR A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT and trudeau is NULL AND VOID!
after all that is what he is making what used to be OUR FORMER COUNTRY CANADA, and our lives into!
iT IS US OR THEM/HIM and so far it isn’t we who are winning but rather we already have LOST OUR COUNTRY AND THE FUTURES OF OUR INNOCENT CHILDREN!
How much more are canadians willing to lose in order to be politically correct and to be subservient to this mentally unstable, intellectually stunted nazi and his puppetmaster gerald butts (and yes butts is still very much running the show and being paid by us!!) on parliament hill who has made it abundantly clear since well before the 2015 election that he HATES US ,CANADA, OUR RACE, CULTURE, VALUES, RELIGIONS AND SO ON WITH A PASSION AND IS DOING EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO WIPE US OFF THE MAP??

1. Quebec government tables secular law.

All the MSM is saying terrible Quebec, the rest of Canada isn’t like them.
If that is the case, why not have a National Referendum on that point?
I would bet at least 70% of the ROC would want the same deal as Quebec.

Hey progressives you preach secularism , now i bet you will hate the Quebec law like the hypocrites you are since it targets religions you prostrate before.

Number 10-Italy may have a future, this is one huge step. Gonna be funny hearing progressives have to tell us why self defense is racist or some other garbage.

Now that Gontario is in shit hole statist and Trudeau has showed you just how far he will go to screw the rest of Canada for his Quebec , time for Mr . Ford to round up all the illegals that were shipped to Gontario from Quebec and send them back to Quebec . Trudeau welcomed them let Quebec pay for them . Welfare raises your property taxes . My water charges are around $90 for 2 people so you can imagine how much this is costing us .
