German spy agency knows that refugees contain Daesh infiltrators

Again, I told you so.

The Krauts have a big problem and it’s one they were warned about…terrorists infiltrating refugees.

Germany’s secret service has received more than 100 tip-offs that ISIS militants are hiding out among asylum seekers, it was reported today.

The head of the domestic intelligence agency (BfV), Hans-Georg Maassen, mentioned the figure at a discussion in the Interior Ministry, according to local media.

It comes a day after police conducted raids on suspected Islamist militants at locations across the country, including two refugee centres.

But Mr Maassen also said that among those tip-offs there were some cases of untruthful defamation, the Berliner Zeitung newspaper reported, without citing sources.

The BfV was not immediately available for comment when contacted by Reuters news agency.   Read more »

Hard to see why French marching backwards is a news story

The French are the world champs at marching backwards, but they are challenged periodically by the Argies and the Italians.

That said, it is hard to understand why the French marching backwards is a news story.

Video footage (above) reveals the moment migrants and anarchists marching through the centre of Calais on Saturday broke through police lines and stormed the city’s port which connects France to the United Kingdom.

The French government is adamant that current security provisions in the area are adequate and effective, yet the video shows riot police backing away from a crowd of migrants chanting “UK, UK”, before turning and running. One migrant angrily screams at the camera: “We are people. We are Muslim! We want to go to UK!”

The migrants were then able to break through security fencing; 50 made it all the way onto the UK-bound ferry Spirit of Britain.    Read more »

Palestinians tell their kids to kill but world outraged at Israelis who defend themselves

What was the security guard supposed to do when he was attacked by a knife wielding Palestinian who happened to be 13?

I’d shoot too.

A 13-year-old Palestinian girl was shot dead on Saturday by an Israeli security guard she tried to stab at a settlement in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, Israeli police said.

Hours later, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas came out against Palestinian groups he said were encouraging youth to take part in an almost four-month long surge of violence with Israel which has raised concern of wider escalation a decade after the last Palestinian uprising subsided.

Finally, Abbas has come out against Palestinian terror attacks…but note, only if they involve children.

The fatal incident on Saturday followed two stabbings this week inside settlements carried out by Palestinian teenagers, according to Israeli authorities.

“There are people who want them to go, this is not acceptable. This is a generation we want to build. They send him (youths) there to be wounded or killed,” Abbas told reporters in Ramallah.

White House admits its $100 billion in aid to Iran will be used to fund terrorism

I wonder if Murray McCully is happy about this? He trumpeted the Iran deal to the world..and now we find out that Obama’s government will likely be funding terrorism as a result.

The Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran will provide $100 billion in sanctions relief to one of the world’s biggest funders of terrorism. Now, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said that it is highly likely — “expected” even — that the Islamic Republic will use sanctions relief money to continue its support of terrorism around the globe.

The Free Beacon reports:

“The thing that’s important for people to recognize is that critics of this agreement often exaggerate the value of the sanctions relief that Iran will obtain, and they often overlook the rather severe economic priorities that are badly underfunded inside of Iran.”  Read more »

Mad Bomber Arrested!

Serial killers must continuously kill simply because they are addicted to the feeling they get through the process. They’re rationalizing every aspect of their behaviour so they don’t see any good reason to stop doing what they’re doing. That’s when the headache for investigators comes into the game – how to get even a smallest idea of who the killer may be?

This kind of problem solver is criminal profiling, also known as psychological profiling. The origins of criminal profiling date back to the Middle Ages, where the inquisitors were trying to profile heretics. In 19th century, the potential of profiling was realized by Hans Gross, Alphonse Bertillon, Jacob Fries, Cesare Lombroso, but their researches were generally considered to be prejudiced.

Psychiatrist Dr. James A. Brussel is credited to be an author of the first systematic profile within a criminal investigation, while chasing a person, best known as “Mad Bomber”, responsible for a series of indiscriminate bombings spanning 16 years in New York.

On November 16, 1940, an unexploded bomb was found on a window ledge of the Consolidated Edison building in Manhattan. It was wrapped in a very neatly hand-written note that read,

CON EDISON CROOKS-THIS IS FOR YOU.

The police were baffled; surely whoever delivered the bomb would know that the note would be destroyed if the bomb detonated. Was the bomb meant to not go off? Was the person stupid …or was he just sending a message?

No discernible fingerprints were found on the device and a brief search of company records brought no leads, so the police treated the case as an isolated incident by a crackpot, possibly someone who had a grievance with “Con-Ed,” the huge company that proved New York City with all its gas and electric power.

Maybe now the liberal left will say something

The liberal left remains silent on the problem facing the world with rampant and violent Islamism.

They’ve remained silent when Syrian homosexuals are hurled to their death from tall buildings, they’ve remained silent while women are abused, enslaved and subjugated by the most misogynist of religions, and they’ve remained silent while Christians are crucified simply because of their faith.

Perhaps they will find their voice now trans-gendered women are being stoned in Germany.

Three teenagers of North African origin have been arrested in connection to the alleged assault of two transgender women in the German city of Dortmund.

Named only by their first names as Yasmine and Elisa, the two victims said that they were verbally abused and threatened with stones by the men near the city’s main train station last Monday.

The attackers allegedly said they were going to stone the two women before a police officer intervened.

Elisa, 37, and Jasmin, 50, said that the men spoke to them in Arabic and said they needed to stone ‘such people’, according to the German media organisation Breitbart.   Read more »

Twitter’s death will be by lawsuit

heres-the-manual-that-al-qaeda-and-now-isis-use-to-brainwash-people-online

In 2009 Twitter was sued by an NFL sports coach who was annoyed at a spoof account mocking him. As a result they changed their operation and their rules.

Since then there have been other cases, some legal and others very public, such as GamerGate, attacks on women in the UK and general bullying. All the issues have resulted in a tightening of the rules.

In April 2015 they changed the rules again, this time with a focus on the promotion of terrorism:

By April, in another page separate from the Rules, the company also prohibited “threatening or promoting terrorism,” as well as “promot[ing] violence against others… on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, age, or disability.”

Twitter wasn’t using the term “hate speech,” but the company had effectively banned hate speech.

When asked for comment, a Twitter spokesperson contested this characterization, saying the company does not prohibit hate speech. “‘Hateful conduct’ differs from ‘hate speech’ in that the latter focuses on words. It’s the incitement to violence that we’re prohibiting. Offensive content and controversial viewpoints are still permitted on Twitter.”

Twitter is correct in that their definition of “hateful conduct” does not span quite as broadly as the hate speech prohibited in many European jurisdictions. But given that a viewpoint-based restriction on inciting speech is something that’s alien to American law, and the “hateful conduct” classification looks just like a subset of hate speech, it seems a bit like splitting hairs here.

No doubt there were questions around the language in the rest of the April update. By August, the company had reformulated the phrasing to clarify that it definitely included indirect threats, marking a massive departure from the original rules set out in 2009, which had explicitly limited the prohibition on threats to “direct” and “specific” threats.

Indeed, the new ban on indirect threats contradicted the Rules page, which used the “direct, specific threats” phrasing it had inherited from 2009. But other support pages clarified that Twitter prohibited not only hate speech and indirect threats, but also the “incitement” of harassment—speech that wasn’t a threat per se, but was intended to result in threats regardless.

Cologne won’t happen here because we have U.N.-vetted refugees, Or so we hope

Fairfax tells us that we have no need to trouble our little minds with the goings-on in Germany.

We are fine because we are letting the U.N. vet our refugees.

Rest assured, New Zealand has a robust process for screening refugees entering the country.

A spokeswoman for Immigration Minister Michael Woodhouse said the country only takes refugees who have been refereed by the UNHCR [United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees].

“In addition to the UNHCR’s own screening process, all refugee cases submitted for consideration undergo robust assessments as part of INZ’s decision-making process,” she said.   Read more »

German Minister: Immigrant attacks may be part of a co-ordinated plan to unsettle the country

Germany has real problems, and the blame game has started.

The latest outrage, the New Year’s sexual assaults on women being the catalyst for Germans to finally wake up to the problem Angela Merkel let in the the front door.

The German justice minister has told a German newspaper that he assumes the crimes that took place in Cologne during New Year celebrations were “coordinated or prepared”, as police say the number of sexual assaults and robberies reported have risen significantly.

In a statement released on Sunday, Cologne police said that they were investigating 516 criminal complaints, and that about 40 percent of those allegations were of sexual offenses.

“If such a horde gathers in order to commit crimes, that appears in some form to be planned,” Justice Minister Heiko Maas told the Bild newspaper. “Nobody can tell me that this was not coordinated or prepared.

“All connections must be carefully checked,” Maas said. “There is a suspicion that a particular date was chosen with expected crowds. That would then be a new dimension.”

Maas said he wanted to quickly determine whether the New Year’s assaults in Cologne could be linked to similar offenses in other cities such as Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Hamburg where women also claimed to be harassed.   Read more »

Kissinger on Daesh: ‘Nobody Was Confused on How to Deal with Hitler in WWII’

Henry Kissinger is fairly blunt when it comes to how we deal with ISIS.

Truth Revolt reports:

Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger told Sky News that there was no question in anyone’s mind on how to deal with Adolf Hitler during World War II and so it should be with ISIS.

“During the Second World War, nobody said, “What is the solution for dealing with Hitler?” Kissinger said. “And this is an organization that has engaged in mass murder on television in the killing of prisoners. So I do not think that the Islamic State as it exists is a group with which we can negotiate.”   Read more »
