1. New United Nations Boss Unveils Plan to Promote Global Mass Migration
United Nations Secretary General António Guterres has unveiled his plan to promote global mass migration in the left-liberal Guardian newspaper.
Guterres, a former Socialist Party prime minister in his native Portugal, took over the top job at the UN on January 1st, having previously served as the institution’s High Commissioner for Refugees.
His article, titled “Migration can benefit the world. This is how we at the UN plan to help”, makes the bold claim that mass migration “powers economic growth, reduces inequalities and connects diverse societies”, in order to promote the Global Compact for Migration.
2. Eyewitness to 1980 Paris Synagogue Bombing Protests Release of Suspect by French Court
An eyewitness to the 1980 bombing of a synagogue in Paris — in which four people died and dozens more were wounded — expressed outrage on Friday at the release of the terrorist allegedly behind the attack.
Shimon Samuels — international relations director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) — told French Justice Nicole Belloubet in a letter that the release of the suspect, Hassan Diab, by a Paris tribunal was “a body-blow for survivors and victims families.”
Samuels recalled his presence on October 3, 1980, on the corner of rue Lauriston, 150 meters away from the explosion. He had just wished a “Happy Succoth” (Tabernacles) to Aliza Shagrir — wife of the Israeli filmmaker, Midna Shagrir — as she turned into rue Copernic, where she met her death as one of the four street victims of the bombing that also wounded 41 inside the destroyed building.
The following morning, then-Prime Minister Raymond Barre notoriously stated that “a bomb set for Jews killed four innocent Frenchmen.”
Hassan Diab was a sociology professor at Ottawa University for some time before being extradited to France on terror charges in 2008.
3. Isis executioner who threw gay men off buildings bribed his way out of prison in “minutes”
A notorious Isis henchman accused of beheading gay men and throwing them off rooftops has escaped from police custody just minutes after being arrested in Iraq.
Abu Omer – known as “White Beard” thanks to his impressive facial hair – was arrested in Mosul at the beginning of the year. Local and international media reported his detention but now it seems that the sadistic jihadi was back on the road in no time at all.
4. UK: Top school bans Muslim girls under eight from wearing hijabs
One of the best rated primary schools in the UK has banned girls aged under eight years old from wearing hijabs.
St Stephen's primary school, in Newham, east London, has also forbidden Muslim pupils from fasting on school days during Ramadan.
Arif Qawi, chairman of governors at St Stephen's, which topped the Sunday Times school league tables in 2017, said the Department of Education should “step up and [take the issue] out of our hands”.
He told The Sunday Times: “We did not ban fasting altogether but we encouraged them to fast in holidays, at weekends and not on the school campus.”
5. PICTURES: Historic German Church Demolished as Mosques Multiply Across the Country
The 19th century Church of St Lambertus in Immerath, Germany, has been torn down despite public protests, as mosques and Islamic centres multiply across the country.
The huge building, which was “notable for its double towers and neo-Romanesque design”, according to the Catholic Herald, was demolished by the RWE mining company to make way for an opencast lignite mine.
6. Abu Hamza says he was tipped off about 9/11 FOUR DAYS before attacks
The hook-handed former imam claims he received a phonemail from terrorists in Afghanistan who told him “something big will happen very soon”.
The revelation comes from court documents as the 59-year-old is launching an appeal claiming conditions in the Supermax prison in Colorado, where he is being held, breach his human rights.
Hamza also claims British spies were hacking his phone at the time raising questions as to whether the UK was withholding information from America.
7. Secret plot to let FIFTY MILLION African workers into EU
MORE than 50 million African workers are to be invited to Europe in a far-reaching secretive migration deal, the Daily Express can reveal today.
A controversial taxpayer-funded “job centre” opened in Mali this week is just the first step towards promoting “free movement of people in Africa and the EU”.
Brussels economists claim Britain and other EU states will “need” 56 million immigrant workers between them by 2050 to make up for the “demographic decline” due to falling birth rates and rising death rates across Europe.
The report, by the EU statistical agency Eurostat, warns that vast numbers of migrants could be needed to meet the shortfall in two years if Europe is to have a hope of funding the pension and health needs of its growing elderly population.
It states: “Countries with low fertility rates could require a significant number of immigrants over the coming decades if they want to maintain the existing number of people of working age.”
8. Alleged attack on hijab-wearing girl didn’t happen: Police
An alleged attack against an 11-year-old girl where a man supposedly cut off her hijab while she walked to school last week, did not in fact happen, Toronto police say.
On Jan. 12, the girl told police that she was on her way to Pauline Johnson Public School in Scarborough when a man dressed in black came up behind her. She said the man pulled off the hood to her jacket and cut off her hijab with a pair of scissors before fleeing the area.
Toronto police responded and said they were investigating the alleged incident as a hate crime.
However police said Monday morning that after a thorough investigation, they don’t believe the incident happened.
“There was an extensive investigation Friday and over the weekend and quite simply, investigators came to the conclusion, considering all the evidence they had, that what was described did not happen,” police spokesman Mark Pugash said.

10. Hungarian PM,Viktor Orban: If EU Cannot Secure External Borders “Internal Borders Must Be Closed”
In an extensive interview with German media Sunday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán criticized Brussels for its overreach into national politics, urging a rethinking of the role of the European Union (EU).
Speaking with the German Sunday paper Welt am Sonntag, Mr. Orbán said that Europe and the EU are not the same thing. Europe is “not in Brussels, but in Berlin, in Budapest, in Warsaw and in Paris,” Orbán said.
“I do not criticise Brussels, but Brussels politicians and bureaucrats, who act as if they were the centre of an empire,” he said.
The government of Hungary wants an EU with a parliament of limited powers, Orbán added, with “a strong council” of heads of government, and with a “commission which, rather than making policies, should serve as guardian of the treaties.”
