3. Muslim leaders: Execute LGBTs
The American Center for Democracy (ACD) published a video exposing Muslim religious leaders' stance on the LGBT community.
In an article on ACD's website, Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld wrote, “Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau touts himself as a leader who grants equality and rights for the LGBTQ community. At the same time, he also embraces and promotes the growing Islamist movement in Canada, which views homosexuality as a crime punishable by lashing and even death.”
She also noted that “the Islamists make no secret of their views. They promote them in mosques, public lectures, articles and books often distributed free in bookstores and on city street corners.”

The German city of Cottbus, Brandenburg has forced a 15-year-old Syrian asylum seeker and his father to leave town and never return after he pulled a knife on a local couple last week.
The eviction is the first time the local government has ordered an asylum seeker to move elsewhere and they say he has been a repeat offender since moving to the area.

Paris rubbish collectors have released a video to sound the alarm over a plague of rats that have invaded the banks of the Seine, claiming that the rodents now pose a physical threat to dustmen.
Shot last month between the tourist landmark of the Musée d’Orsay and the Pont Royal, the film shows a huge group of the large vermin desperately trying to escape from a deep plastic municipal rubbish bin.

PARIS (Reuters) - French prison guards launched a nationwide strike on Monday in a showdown with President Emmanuel Macron’s government over staffing levels and violence which they say is spiralling out of control in overcrowded jails.
[...] France’s prison population has more than doubled since the 1970s. The guards say they no longer have enough staff or equipment to handle violent inmates, notably convicted Islamists and petty criminals who become radicalised while in prison.
10. Teens roam streets with rifles as crime swamps Sweden
The blast was so powerful that it shook windows a mile away. Ahmad’s first thought was that someone had thrown yet another bomb at the police.
He was right. On Wednesday night an explosive device was hurled at the police station in Rosengard, a troubled area of Malmo, Sweden’s third largest city.
Attacks on the police are increasingly frequent. Rosengard’s force works from a black fortress of reinforced concrete with narrow windows and a 10ft-high electric fence.
“I knew it was a bomb again,” said Ahmad, 53, who lives in the area with his wife and their four teenage children.
