Iran plus Korea Update

Beyond the Cusp

Iranian protests against economic stagnation, disinterest of the government placing foreign wars they chose above its people and against an oppressive regime which strangles their youth and their desires to be free and live as they choose. There have been over two or three dozen already murdered and many hundreds arrested with a good number of those likely to never be seen again and the only reaction from the government has been to televise pro-government demonstrations which were more likely than not staged using IRGC* and Basij Militias members who are a small minority of the nations but extremely loyal to the regime. Both organizations are religiously fanatical as is the government. The Iranian top leadership is made up of religious clerics, the Mullahs, who hand pick who are permitted to run for elected office thus making their appearance of democracy merely that, appearance. Nobody who would work against the…

Germany’s Batty Plan to Deter Migrants

The German foreign ministry has launched a website to discourage would-be migrants from making their journey to Germany: “Rumours about Germany: Facts for Migrants”. It aims — In English, French and Arabic — to debunk “some of the most common false promises made by traffickers”, such as:

“Every refugee receives a welcome payment of 2,000 euros”,
“Germany grants a house to every refugee” or,
“The ship for the crossing is very big, it even has a pool and a cinema.”

The new website comes in the wake of “AWARE MIGRANTS”, a similar project jointly developed by the Italian Ministry of the Interior and the International Office for Migration(IOM) in July 2016. Whereas the goal of “AWARE MIGRANTS” was to raise awareness about the dangerous journey across the African desert and the Mediterranean, “Rumours about Germany” focuses mostly on the economic aspects of asylum seekers’ lives in Germany — which the website paints as one of hardships and dismal prospects:

“Those entering Germany illegally will not be able to get a job. Also note that the German government does not provide refugees with jobs. … Contrary to rumours and misinformation deliberately spread by human traffickers, Germany does not provide a welcome payment. Nobody will be given his own house. In fact, finding a place to live has become more and more difficult in Germany, especially in the big cities. Also note that you cannot choose freely where to live while you seek asylum and may have to stay in remote places where no one understands your language.”

London sees 20% rise in rape reports in a year, police say “we don’t understand the causes”

Of course you don’t understand the causes, you clowns, because you refuse to look at what is right in front of your face. The increase in rapes is related to the increased presence of Muslims in London. This is because the Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.

But to note this in London today would be an “Islamophobic hate crime,” and those have been rising, too.

Britain is, as is obvious, finished.

Israeli Laws and Disputed Territories

Beyond the Cusp

The term “Disputed Territories” while more accurate than “Occupied Territories” is still not exact enough to relate the truth and the actual state of these areas under International Law. Because of treaties, conferences et al including but not limited to (and with apologies to our regular readers but the list once again) San Remo Conference, Treaty of Sèvres, Treaty of Lausanne, the Mandates System and the Treaty of Westphalia (which defines the necessary requirements an area must meet to be denoted as a State). Still, we will use the term “Disputed Territories” for this article unless referring to specific regions or a change in recognition of the existing dispute.

All of the treaties listed above lead to one singular conclusion, under International Law, the eastern border of the State of Israel is the Jordan River. There is but one way that such can be altered, and this is what is…
