1. Dalai Lama says “Europe belongs to Europeans”

STOCKHOLM (AFP) - The Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, said Wednesday that “Europe belongs to the Europeans” and that refugees should return to their native countries to rebuild them.

Speaking at a conference in Sweden's third-largest city of Malmo, home to a large immigrant population, the Dalai Lama -- who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 -- said Europe was “morally responsible” for helping “a refugee really facing danger against their life.”

“Receive them, help them, educate them... but ultimately they should develop their own country,” said the 83-year-old Tibetan who fled the capital Lhasa in fear of his life after China poured troops into the region to crush an uprising.

“I think Europe belongs to the Europeans,” he said, adding they should make clear to refugees that “they ultimately should rebuild their own country.”

4. French Islam Reform Report Claims Radical Salafism Dominates Islamic Intellectual Circles

A new report advising French President Emmanuel Macron on his proposal to reform Islam in France has claimed that radical Salafism has gained a monopoly on French Islamic intellectual thought.

The new report, authored by French-Tunisian Islam expert Hakim el Karoui of the Montaigne Institute, claims that radical Islamist ideas permeate France’s Islamic intellectual circles, saying that bookshops have become dominated by radical versions of the religion, French radio broadcaster RTL reports.

6. UK Police Force Doubles Down on “Non-Crime Hate Incidents” After Social Media Backlash

[...] According to local media, the force said it was moved to post the warnings on Twitter and Facebook after witnessing a “significant increase on our social media platforms of offensive abuse towards our communities” after reports of a hijab-clad woman shouting, “Kill, kill, kill” as she chased pedestrians in Barnsley town centre with a foot-long machete at the weekend.

Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts said: “Hate crime affects communities across the UK. Our recording of non-crime hate incidents is nationally accepted good practice and is the policy adopted by all forces.

“In the wake of this weekend’s incident in Barnsley, we have seen a significant increase on our social media platforms of offensive abuse against our communities.

“The comments are vile and offensive and, ironically, the bigotry expressed re-emphasises the need to tackle hate both within our local communities and much wider.”

7. Tragedy shakes communities that helped bring murder suspect to Canada

The Vancouver church which assisted with the private refugee sponsorship of the man accused of killing 13-year-old Marrisa Shen will co-operate with police as their investigation into Ibrahim Ali continues. St. Andrew's-Wesley United Church lead minister Dan Chambers issued a brief statement Tuesday in response to questions about Ali, a Syrian national who came to Canada with other members of his family in March 2017. [...]

Ali was arrested Friday night and made a court appearance by telephone from the Burnaby RCMP detachment the following day with the assistance of an Arabic translator. The CBC listened to an audio recording of the proceedings, which lasted roughly 14 minutes, beginning with a judicial official reading the charge to the 28-year-old. “Mr Ali, you're before the court today to deal with the following charge: Ibrahim Ali, on or about the 18th day of July 2017, at or near Burnaby in the province of British Columbia, did commit the first degree murder of Marrisa Shen.” Ali said he understood the charge. [...]

Ali came to Canada through the private refugee sponsorship program, which allows groups of individuals to support refugees on their arrival with an agreement to provide care, lodging, settlement assistance and support. Sponsorship groups agree to give material support for periods that range from 12 months to 36 months. According to an article in the Bowen Island Undercurrent, one of Ali's brothers came to Canada as a government sponsored refugee four years before his siblings.

(ANSA) - Rome, September 12 - Deputy Premier and Labour and Industry Minister Luigi Di Maio on Wednesday blasted the European Parliament's approval of a controversial overhaul of copyright law that could force tech giants to install filters that prevent copyright-protected content from being uploaded.

“An all-European disgrace,” said the leader of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S).

“The European Parliament has introduced the censorship of content of Internet users. We are officially entering a scenario worthy of Orwell's Big Brother.”

He said the M5S would fight “in the negotiations between governments, at the European parliament and on the European Commission” against the controversial directive.

He vowed that “at the next vote in the assembly the directive will be blocked again.

10. Son of Boston Police Chief Sentenced to 20 Years for Being “Soldier of ISIS”

The son of a Boston police captain was sentenced to 20 years in jail on Wednesday for being a “committed soldier” of the Islamic State and helping plan a terror attack.

Alexander Ciccolo, 26, of, Adams, Massachusetts, was first arrested in 2015 when his father Boston Police Capt. Robert Ciccolo contacted authorities about concerns he had over his son’s behavior. Prosecutors have since praised him for a decision that “likely saved the lives of numerous innocent people.”

According to a Justice Department statement, Ciccolo pleaded guilty in May on a variety of charges that included counts of “attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization,” “attempting to use weapons of mass destruction,” “being a convicted person in possession of firearms,” and another count of “assaulting a nurse during a jail intake process by use of a deadly weapon causing bodily injury.”

Andrew Mirlach…. And if that happens, you can also add the three Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, who have more in common with the Visegrad Group than the idiots in Brussels… All three are intent on preserving their ancient cultures, languages and folklore…. This year being very symbolic as it marks the 100th anniversary since first declaring independence post World War I……

3: The question is, why has Hungary not exited the EU already? They would likely take the other three Visegrad Nations with them, Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia. The EU is simply hastening it’s own demise, once the UK leaves with it’s big wallet others will too. The EU is unsustainable, it was supposed to be the glowing example of socialists central planning the entire globe would follow. It will fail as socialism always does.
