2. Attacks on Muslims will become specific hate crime, say Tories in bid to establish full extent of Islamophobia in Britain
Every police force in England and Wales will be required to record anti-Muslim hate crimes and treat them as seriously as anti-Semitic attacks if the Tories win the next General Election, Theresa May has announced.
In a move hailed by Islamic groups, Mrs May said that police will have to record Islamophobic attacks as a separate category, just as anti-Semitic crimes are recorded separately.
At present some forces, including London’s Metropolitan Police, do record Islamophobic crimes as such. Other forces categorise them as hate crimes or specific offences such as assault or grievous bodily harm.

A court in the Austrian capital Vienna sentenced the Islamic State disciple in connection with plans for two outrages.

The second was a plot to use his 17-year-old wife to bomb the Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany, America's biggest and most important military facility outside the USA.
The defendant, who is of Albanian descent, called the youngster who he coerced into the Ludwigshafen plot to testify on his behalf.
5. Swedish feminists want to ban parties and organisations that criticise migration
Original article in Swedish press.
Soraya Post, a Member of the European Parliament for Sweden’s Feminist Initiative, suggests that the country ban political parties that criticise migration, Friatider reports.
Post says in magazine ETC: “it is a big threat to democracy and so-called human rights to normalise parties such as the Swedish Democrats (SD). The SD still have a homophobic, nationalist, racist and xenophobic policy, this has not been changed. Their policies are still not inclusive, it still excludes minorities”.
“And just because Alternative for Sweden [a new far-right party] is now formed, it does not make the SD less xenophobic and racist,” Post adds. “Sweden must ban organisations advocating racism” or “it will end with genocide in Sweden,” post continues in the magazine.
Post replies to a report of the European Commission against racism and intolerance (ECRI) that shows that “The number of cases of racist and xenophobic hatred have increased in recent years, especially in the context of the arrival of a very large number of migrants during the migrant crisis”.
