1. Salvini to left-wing activist: “Take in 10-20 migrants in your home!”
When Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini recently held a campaign speech in the city of Giulianova, he was interrupted by an angry left-wing activist who called him a “s****y murderer.”
Salvini patiently explained that communists who are well-off financially are the people who preach the most morals to other citizens.
He then offered the activist an opportunity to host migrants in his home instead of screaming insults.
“A round of applause for the gentleman who has won 10 migrants for his home. Give your first name, family name, fiscal code, and we will send you 20 migrants and you take care of them – lunch, mid day snack and dinner”, he said.
2. N.J. high school student rejected from National Honor Society for supporting President Trump
A New Jersey high school student said he was rejected from the National Honor Society, because of his support for President Trump.
16-year-old Boris Kizenko spoke out about the incident in a recent interview, saying it all started when he posted a quote from President Trump to the class Instagram page he was in charge of.
Kizenko said he was careful to pick an inspirational quote that was not political. Still however, school officials demanded he take down the post and hand over the password to the social media account. [...]
Kizenko said the school administration told him he had a “character flaw” leading to the National Honor Society’s decision to drop him.
The junior has a 4.0 GPA and more than 200 hours of community service experience.

3. Al-Qaeda RETURNS: Experts warn ISIS is NOT the problem - as Bin Laden's terror army rises
Since the start of the year, the organisation founded by Osama bin Laden has been slowly strengthening its position in the region. The group is attempting to fill the void left by the weakening of ISIS in Syria and take advantage of peace efforts to bolster the area under their control. Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham, the group linked to al-Qaeda which has made the advances, now control as much as 5 percent of Syria’s territory.
Their resurgence coincides with Donald Trump announcing he intends to pull all US troops out of the war-torn country.
Writing on Twitter in December last year, the President said: “We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency.”
However, despite the demise of the brutal caliphate, their presence is being replaced with an old foe of America.
4. UK: Shop ban for disabled pensioner after row with man praying at work
A DISABLED pensioner has been banned from her local post office after a row with a worker who was praying during his shift.
Retired hairdresser Sue James had an argument with the staff member who she said was praying behind the counter instead of serving customers at Premier Feniscowles convenience store in Blackburn.
The 70-year-old, who rides a mobility scooter, had cross words with the Muslim worker after she said he left her standing at the counter for five minutes as she tried to collect her pension. [...]
Mrs James left her scooter outside the shop, as she was unable to take it into the store with her, and stood at the counter waiting for several minutes “in pain” but with no one to serve her.
The mum-of-one muttered out loud, “This is b****y ridiculous” before a member of staff “jumped up” from behind the counter and told her: “How dare you speak to me in this way?”
After a heated row with the staff member, she was told to leave the shop and never return.
5. Finland: Oulu bans asylum seeker visits to schools
The city of Oulu has temporarily banned asylum seeker and refugee visits to schools and daycare centres as investigations into sexual abuse of minors continue.
Oulu has decided to temporarily discontinue asylum seeker visits to local schools and daycare centres.
The city’s ban of the integrational visits organised by the Red Cross and other charitable groups is based on an ongoing investigation into the alleged sexual abuse of underage girls by a number of asylum seekers and refugees in Oulu.
Mika Penttilä, the city's Head of Education and Cultural Services, said the decision was driven by parental concerns.
"We have agreed with the organisers that no such visits will take place at the moment. People have approached us about these visits to find out whether they pose a security risk," Penttilä said.
6. Corbyn holds talks with rising star of the US Congress Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - but discussion about “peace, prosperity and justice” gets her into trouble for speaking to an “anti-Semite”
Jeremy Corbyn held talks with rising star of US Congress Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - but his intervention prompted claims she is talking to an “anti-Semite.”
The Labour leader revealed the call with Ms Ocasio-Cortez last night, revealing the pair talked about tackling billionaires and spreading prosperity.
She tweeted about the meeting to her 2.8million followers, insisting it was a “wide-ranging conversation” about “furthering peace, prosperity and justice.”
Mr Corbyn and Ms Ocasio-Cortez - seen by some as a future presidential candidate for the Presidency - share a socialist platform and many Labour activists want to copy her grassroots campaign techniques in the UK.
But the association with Mr Corbyn led to immediate criticism over the anti-Semitism crisis which has engulfed Labour since he became leader in 2015.

8. EU to Iran: Stop missile tests, assassination attempts on European soil
The European Union on Monday urged Iran to put an “immediate end” to “unacceptable behavior,” including refraining from any further ballistic missiles tests or attempts to assassinate Iranian dissidents on European soil. [...]
New missiles, old suspicions: The EU statement came days after Iran unveiled the new Hoveizeh cruise missile with a range of more than 1,300 kilometers (800 miles). Tehran claims their missiles comply with a UN order because they cannot carry nuclear warheads and have limited range.
EU sanctions Iranian intelligence: The EU has accused Iran of involvement in attempts to assassinate Iranian dissidents in France, Denmark and the Netherlands. The bloc sanctioned Iran's Ministry for Intelligence and Security in January for its alleged involvement in the attacks.
9. Hardline Muslim preacher rages against public urinals and says Allah will punish Islamic men who get 'splash back' on their shoes
A hardline Muslim preacher has declared Allah will punish any Islamic man who uses a wall-mounted public urinal and gets “splash back” on his shoes.
Nassim Abdi, from the ultra-conservative Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah Association, has told worshipers at a western Sydney mosque those who failed to clean themselves properly after urinating would be punished “in the grave.”
The Auburn-based preacher accused Muslim men of imitating non-believers, also known as kafirs, by exposing their private parts at wall-mounted urinals in public toilets.
“A person using them is urinating in full view of anyone, who comes and goes, with no shame in the midst of impurity,” he said last week at the end of a 32-minute religious lesson.
“Thus he can combine two apparent and forbidden acts in one deed, not hiding his private parts from the view of others nor cleaning himself properly after urinating.”
10. Canada: Former ISIS sex slaves sheltered in Canada threatened with phone calls, texts
Former ISIS sex slaves, who were given sanctuary in Canada, are again living in fear after being bombarded by voicemails and texts threatening rape and murder.
Five women and one 14-year-old girl have filed reports with York Regional Police. The victims are all Yazidis who survived an ISIS-led genocide in Iraq in 2014.
They have handed over to police recordings of the phone calls and screen grabs of the texts, which reference the Islamic State and include pictures of beheadings and armed Jihadis.
W5 has listened to the phone calls. In one, a man laughs as he says in Arabic: “I am the man who f****d you. I am your rapist.” A second caller denounces Yazidis as devil worshippers. And a third caller makes a graphic reference to rape.
