5. Hungarian Minister: Christianophobia is "last acceptable form of discrimination"
The Hungarian Foreign Minister said that Europe ignores its Christian roots to its own peril, and its lack of identity makes it difficult to understand or respect other traditions.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Péter Szijjártó, Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, pulled no punches in describing Europe’s dearth of values because of its refusal to embrace its own history.
“While everyone speaks very hypocritically about tolerance and accepting others,” Szijjártó said, “we must ask how it is possible to respect others with their religions, traditions, and history if we don’t respect our own.”
6. Now DENMARK blocks Turkish ministers from official visit as tensions continue to escalate
Lars Loekke Rasmussen, the prime minister of Denmark, blocked Turkish prime minister Binali Yilderim in response to Erdogan’s “rhetorical attacks on the Netherlands”.
In a statement Mr Rasmussen said that "under normal circumstances” it would be a pleasure to greet Yilderim in Copenhagen.
But he added: “With the current rhetorical attacks by Turkey against the Netherlands, a new meeting cannot be seen isolated from that.
“I have therefore suggested to my Turkish colleague that our meeting is postponed."
Denmark’s call for an official visit ban from Turkey comes after Erdogan warned the Netherlands, it will “pay” for banning his country’s ministers.

8. Somali pirates "HIJACK commercial ship with eight crew members onboard"
(In fact, Mohammad, the founder of Islam, began his career as a pirate of desert caravans, robbing them of currency and merchandise and distributing the booty to his men.)
If confirmed, the incident would be the first hijack of a commercial ship by Somali pirates since 2012.
The Dubai-owned Aris 13 ships was believed to be carrying eight crew members when it was attacked by a gang of pirates on Monday.
Mohamud Ahmed Eynab, the district commissioner for Alula, said: "The pirates hijacked the oil tanker and they brought it near Alula."
Pirates in the town confirmed they were expecting the ship.
John Steed from the aid group Oceans Beyond Piracy said the group turned the Sri Lankan-flagged fuel freighter’s tracking system off and altered its course for the Somali coast, heading towards the port of Alula.
9. Report: More Citizens of Saudi Arabia Have Joined Islamic State Than Any Other Country
The Sunni Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) has boasted that key U.S. Middle East ally Saudi Arabia is the top provider of terrorists for the jihadist group in Iraq, reports Fox News, citing Iraqi military sources.
Sunni Saudi Arabia shares an estimated 500-mile-long border with war-ravaged Iraq.
Nevertheless, Fox News reports that the Saudi jihadists crossed into Iraq over the border the country shares with both Turkey and Syria.
The news outlet learned from unnamed Iraqi intelligence sources that jihadist from the Saudi kingdom comprise nearly one-third (up to 30 percent) of all ISIS terrorists in Iraq, adding that “Saudis comprise the largest single contingent of ISIS fighters, with Russian Chechens making up the second-largest contingent.”
10. Burka ban in workplace IS legal, EU court rules
The European Union courts must have at least one finger in the wind, to make this change in favour of European values.
Notice the Sky News Propaganda video against the EU decision, which attempts to delink symbols from their ideologies and make this look like a racist war on fashion.
The ECJ said in a statement: "An internal rule of an undertaking which prohibits the visible wearing of any political, philosophical or religious sign does not constitute direct discrimination.
"However, in the absence of such a rule, the willingness of an employer to take account of the wishes of a customer no longer to have the employer's services provided by a worker wearing an Islamic headscarf cannot be considered an occupational requirement that could rule out discrimination.”
