Muslim migrants complain “Croatia is not up to our standards, we want Germany”

Quote

Muslims (mostly men) tried to escape from the detention camp in Croatia. They say Croatia is not good enough for them so they try to escape and flee to Germany where they want to get free housing,
food, welfare benefits, money, health insurance and free stuff (smartphones, WIFI, etc.).
Every country has the right to defend itself and to deport illegal immigrants back to where they came from.
Germany can not provide free housing, food, welfare benefits etc to millions of Muslim immigrants from all over the Middle East, Asia and Africa.

Why Khamenei Can’t Do a Kim Jong-Un

Quote

The other day in Tehran, the arrival of a US registered passenger plane at the International Airport triggered an avalanche of rumors that, for a brief moment, buried the anxieties that grip Iranians with regard to the looming confrontation with the Trump administration in Washington. The wildest, and most popular, rumor was that the “American plane” had brought a special emissary from Washington to invite the “Supreme Guide” Ali Khamenei to a summit with President Donald Trump with a view to “doing a North Korea”.

The rumor wasn’t all that fanciful.

The history of relations between the US and the mullahs is full of cloak-and-dagger episodes.

President Jimmy Carter wrote flattering letters to Khomeini, the man who created the Islamic Republic. In response Khomeini sent Prime Minister Mehdi Bazargan to reassure Carter and persuade him to resume the supply of arms to Iran. President Ronald Reagan sent his former National Security Adviser Robert MacFarlane to Tehran to discuss a deal with the ayatollah. And Khamenei visited the occupied US Embassy in Tehran to discuss the purchase of American arms with US diplomats held hostage.

Under Reagan, with help from Israel, the US smuggled arms to Iran to stop Saddam Hussein’s army.

The titanic struggle to save the United Kingdom

Quote

No-one should be in the slightest doubt about the titanic struggle becoming more desperate by the day to defend British democracy and restore the UK as an independent self-governing nation.

An all-out attempt is being being made to frustrate the wish of the British people, expressed by 52 to 48 per cent in the 2016 referendum, to leave the EU.

Last night, after a day of drama and arm-twisting, Theresa May’s government narrowly escaped defeat over the EU Withdrawal Bill.

A number of amendments to the bill, which had been passed by the unelected House of Lords and were designed to tie the government’s hands in its negotiations with the EU, were returning to the Commons.

The most contentious amendment required the government to seek approval from parliament on the next steps to be taken if the Brussels talks remain deadlocked at the end of November or if the Commons rejects the terms of the deal.

Prince William: an FCO hostage in a minefield

Quote

It was always a racing certainty that next week’s visit to the Middle East by Prince William, featuring the first official visit to Israel by a member of Britain’s Royal Family, would prove to be a diplomatic minefield.

It now turns out, however, that rather than playing the role of minesweeper-in-chief Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office has left one of its own landmines defiantly in place – and is guiding Prince William straight for it.

Prince William is to visit Jordan, Israel and the area controlled by the Palestinian Authority. That much has been known for some time, as has the ostensible aim of this visit to be “apolitical” and not take sides between Israel and the Arabs. Really?

The official itinerary for the royal visitor, published a few days ago by his office at Kensington Palace (but using briefing notes that will have been provided by the FCO) says that the last leg of his visit will be to the “Occupied Palestinian Territories”.

This deeply tendentious phrase is standard fare at the FCO. But what’s raised eyebrows is that the itinerary goes on to say, after HRH meets Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah and speaks at the UK consulate in east Jerusalem,
