The father of the three-year-old boy doused in acid while shopping with his mother has been arrested and is being questioned over the attack.
The 39-year-old suspect, an Afghan asylum seeker who has not been named, was the first suspect detectives held after the boy was targeted while sitting in a pushchair during a shopping trip to Home Bargains with his mother.
Three other younger men are also being grilled in connection with Saturday afternoon’s horrific attack in Worcester after they were arrested 130 miles away in Walthamstow.
They are reportedly eastern Europeans from the Romani community and accomplished bare-knuckle fighters, their east London neighbours said.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The controversy surrounding the US withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA) epitomizes the ongoing debate between two contending approaches on the best way to bring about a positive change in Tehran’s Islamist regime and its policies.
Many, including in Israel, identify the (supposedly) moderate President Hassan Rouhani as the best hope for such a change, warning that the collapse of the nuclear agreement and the reintroduction of international sanctions will play into the hands of the hardliners and weaken Rouhani and the “reformist camp” more generally.
While intriguing, such views are not only unfounded but detrimental to the efforts to pressure Iran to end its domestic repression and external aggression. For one thing, it is international sanctions, not friendly persuasion, that brought Tehran to the negotiating table in the first place. For another, as shown by the popular protests across Iran since early 2018, sustained economic pressure does not weaken the internal Iranian demand for change but rather reinforces it.
Boris Johnson has hit back at criticism for letting two British jihadis face the death penalty in America.
He insisted that if the Government had been able to order their deaths with a drone strike in Syria, ‘too damn right we would’.
Alexanda Kotey and Shafee Elsheikh are linked to the murder of 27 Western hostages.
They are members of the IS terror gang of four men from west London dubbed The Beatles – which included the notorious executioner Jihadi John. Kotey and Elsheikh, who have been stripped of British citizenship, now face extradition from Syria to the US on terrorism charges.
Three Africans film and share on social media their prolonged bloody group violence of a 13-year-old girl in Vasteras, Fria Tider reports.
But now the court of appeals chooses to nearly halve their punishment – from eight months to four and five months of youth detention. A fourth rapist can not be punished because he is said to be a child.
On 14 June 2017 a 13-year-old girl was raped in a flat in Västerås. The three Somalis, reportedly born in 2000, were each sentenced in April for rape against a child to eight months of youth detention.
The judgement was appealed and the prosecutor demanded the perpetrator be punished.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Relations between France and Israel have been ambivalent and complex for decades, and there have been ample occasions when the French government has set out expressly to blacken Israel. President Emmanuel Macron is seemingly a new type of Frenchman. He reached the presidency without having risen through the ranks of an existing political party. He is a suave, intelligent politician with an excellent education, an international outlook, many ideas, and good public relations. However, analysis has to concentrate on facts, not packaging. Macron is continuing the hypocritical French policy of tarnishing Israel.
A good point of departure from which to gauge the current French-Israeli relationship is the French reaction to the recent violence at the Gaza border. When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris in April, Macron told him that the relocation of the US Embassy to Jerusalem “led to people dying and did not advance peace.” With this transparently manipulative statement Macron showed his skill at distorting the truth. The violence had been provoked by the initiative of the terror organization Hamas to send civilians to the border and mix terrorists among them. Among the more than 115 Gazans killed by Israel, more than half were confirmed terrorists. That many of those killed were terrorists was confirmed by Hamas itself.
France also supported a UN Security Council resolution that called for protective measures for Palestinians, but didn’t mention Hamas. Deputy Israeli Minister Michael Oren summarized it in a tweet: “Shame on France for supporting it. French government cannot say it’s against anti-Semitism and vote for this anti-Semitic resolution.”
The huge dirty secret of recycling was also one of the world’s worst polluters.
Every branch of government from Washington D.C. to your local town council had spent a fortune convincing people that recycling is a magical process that turns your old pizza boxes into new pizza boxes while creating those imaginary “green jobs” in the community. The reality was a lot dirtier.
All of America’s industries, including trash sorting, had been outsourced to China.
And recycling is just a fancy lefty way of saying “trash.” All that recycling, which children in progressive communities are taught to sort as the closest thing to a religious ritual, was really being dumped by the ton on dirty ships and sent over to China. We weren’t recycling it. The Chinese were.
But now China is banning foreign recycling because it’s bad for the environment.
Even the Communists got tired of sorting through the trash of American socialists. The recycling scam shipped garbage on dirty ships for dirty industries while pretending that they’re clean and green.
