The Niqab Ban

Posted in America, Britain, England, Equality, European Union, Human Rights, Immigrants, Modern World, News, People's Rights with tags , , , , on 02/06/2018 by floroy1942

Ban The Burka

The niqab has now been banned in public places in Denmark as from 1st of August this year. It is time the whole world banned this disgrace. For when we see Muslim women with their face covered it has no place in this modern world. It is a tradition in the Muslim world that has no place in the west. We need to see the faces of people we deal with, especially in shops. It has been banned in France and many other countries and it should be all over Europe.

When you are dealing with someone with their face covered you cannot tell if they are male or female. Some bombers have disguised themselves as women and this is dangerous. We have to see the face of women we deal with but this is not the case in many countries.

It is a tradition in most Arab countries, but this has to stop in Europe. Who knows if they are telling the truth when their face is covered. There is a lot of anger against this ruling but it must be be made inescapable by the Muslim women. This is a step forward for Europe, but some Muslim women say they will not comply. I read in the news that some women will not go out into public places for they are against this ban, but to stay at home forever will be a particularly harsh sentence.

We will see by August 1st how many Muslim women will heed this law. It for sure that not all will bow to the law, but eventually they will have no choice.

Personally, I would like to see the niqab banned throughout world but that will never happen, for the Arab countries will continue to have women covering their faces.

Why The Violence?

Law enforcement officers respond to Santa Fe (Texas) High School following a shooting in this Harris County Sheriff's Office photo, May 18, 2018.

Yet another shooting in America where ten people were killed at a school and ten others wounded, including a substitute teacher. Why? What is wrong with American youth these days that they have to go around shooting people at schools. Violence has reached a huge proportion in the United States and no-one knows why. The killing of innocent people has got out of hand in the U.S. and its increasing month by month.

What is wrong with these killers who go around murdering people, and they have no regrets. It has to stop! The most obvious thing is to confiscate all weapons from owners and then the U.S. will return to peace. There are millions of Americans who own rifles, pistols and automatic weapons, but most of them do not go around killing people. But there are those who see that killing people as a compunction, for they have twisted brains and want to create havoc.

In this image taken from video, emergency personnel and law enforcement officers respond to a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, after an active shooter was reported on campus, May 18, 2018.

Why do they think like this? In the last year we have seen numerous killings in schools, and for what? I think they should all go to the death chamber and be killed for what they have done.

Nothing like this has ever been seen in the rest of the world, and the reason is guns are popular in the United States, and most people own at least one, be it a handgun, rifle, or an automatic. There are without doubt too many guns in the Unites States, and it is a plague on the general public.

Innocent youth are being targeted in schools and for what? The mind of the killer must be twisted, for they all have the compunction to kill innocent teenagers. Is it that they were insulted or beaten by bullies? This is not a reason to go around killing innocent teenagers.

The killer has been identified as Dimitrios Pagourtzis and he has been arrested by the police. What will happen to him is anybody’s guess. He was a reserved young man, an athlete who had discussed wanting to own guns but didn’t talk of killing people. Something in his mind must have flipped to make him kill his fellow teenagers.

He told the police that he didn’t want to shoot anyone he liked, but he had a Molotov cocktail at his home, and in a vehicle as well as around the high school. He said in the police station that he intended to commit suicide following the shooting, but told law enforcement officials after he was arrested that he didn’t have the courage to go through with it.

It is hard to understand how people get like this and can kill people, especially school mates, but I guess that is the way of the America.

Israel – What A Mess

Posted in America, Arab, Britain, England, European Union, Human Rights, Muslim, News, People's Rights, Politics with tags , , , , on 15/05/2018 by floroy1942

shrinking-map-of-palestine

Israel and the Palestinians have been at loggerheads for the past seventy years, and there seems no end to it. At the moment Israeli forces are shooting protesters at the border and wounding many, but when is this going to end? So far 62 Palestinians have been killed and over 2000 wounded by snipers of the Israeli forces.

By the look of things there will never be a peace accord between the Palestinians and the Israelis. The Jews have taken over so much of Palestinian land and they are forced to live in a small country that is half the size of what they owned. When the Israeli’s forced their way into Palestinian territory in 1949 and took over a large part of the country this was met with horror and dismay by the Palestinians.

They have never forgotten that the country belongs to them, and they have been fighting to get it back. Gaza is the main stumbling block to a peace accord, for Hamas is constantly targeting the Israeli’s with bombs and attacks. They have built many tunnels into Israeli territory, and although the Israeli’es have shut down most of them they are still at it. Hamas is the one great block to a peace accord for they keep attacking the Israeli’s.

They have encouraged the Palestinians to attack the border with Israel, and that is why we see so many deaths and wounding at the border. I do believe that the Israeli Army should not be shooting Palestinians at the border, but just ensure they do not cross the border. This is not going anywhere to making peace with the Palestinians if this continues.

I believe both sides should sit around the table and work something out to satisfy both sides. What is wrong with Palestinians living together with the Jews in one country? Jews have built towns on Palestinian land and they are not willing to give it up. This is wrong! Jews and Palestinians should come together and live in the same country side by side. It does no good for the two sides to be in constant conflict.

The big trouble is Hamas who want war with the Israeli’s, and that should be stopped. There have been constant conflicts between Hamas and the Israeli forces and unless Hamas is removed it will never end.  The leaders of Hamas have become millionaires, while the poor people do not have homes and are starving. This has to end! They should be removed from power and their wealth confiscated to build homes. But this is never likely to happen. They continue the war against the Israeli’s and it will never end so long as they are in power.

It is without doubt that a peace accord must be reached between the Palestinians and the Jews. But that is a long way away for the two sides are in bitter conflict. I think the United Nations should step in and broker a peace between them, for otherwise this will go on forever. I can’t see a peace accord in my lifetime but hopefully it will come someday.

Demonstrations

Arrest Of A Suspect

We see demonstrations all over the world and it is getting worse. Why are people not happy with what they have? Governments are under pressure to change the way we live and give more money to the poor. It is up to people to make their lives better and get an education so that they can at least earn more money. But this is not an option for they want money without doing anything.

The poor people of the world must make themselves able to do work that will earn them more money, but that is too difficult for them. We all have brains and we should make the most of an education. Some cannot be bothered to study at school and turn to crime to get what they want. Education is the keystone for being successful in the world, but they prefer to rob shops and passers-by on the streets to get money, and very many of them spend it on drugs.

Violent attacks and killings are becoming more and frequent in England, and the police are overwhelmed by the number of those being killed on the streets of London and elsewhere. We are getting close to the number of killings in the United States as we see more and more every day.

All these killings are mostly by teenagers who try to get money from those they have murdered. Unless the police clamp down on such things it will get worse. Some of the killings are because of arguments between rivals, and why should they kill someone because they disagree with them. It is monstrous to consider murdering someone because they do not agree with them. Britain is getting more and more violent day by day and it has to stop.

We should be putting these killers in jail for a very long time but all they get is three or four years in prison. Prison does not change the mentality of these killers in such a short time.

Once we get out of the E.U. we should change our laws to be hard on them for a very long time. Bring back hanging will do the trick, and we will see the number of killings drop drastically. No-one wants to be hanged for killing someone on a street or in their own home. Hanging will change the whole of the United Kingdom, and we will see fewer and fewer murders on the streets of our towns and cities.

But first we have to get out of the European Union before we implement this punishment. Once we are free of the European Court of Human Rights and we introduce hanging other countries will follow suit.

The European Union is a farce in this respect for they have banned the death sentence all across Europe. This has led to murders and the only way to stop it is the death sentence. Murderers will be wary of not killing people for fear of the death sentence if they are caught and found guilty.

Once this law has been passed the people can live without fear of getting shot or knifed in their own homes or on the street. Britain will become a safer place as the number of killers dwindles for fear of the death sentence. We only have to hang one or two murderers for it to stop, for all killers will be afraid of what they face.

What Has Become Of Our World

Things are getting worse and worse in our world and its all because of us humans. It is Spring and yet we see snow, and terrible weather across the world. Why!

It is because we humans are making the world a terrible place with our constant abuse. We do not care about the world, for we live our lives as we see fit and do not care about climate change, the weather, and we go about our daily lives without a care of the world and what it has become.

Years ago we cared about the changes in the world and we did everything to stop it. But now we have abandoned this attitude and live our lives without a thinking of the world. There has to be changes in the way we live and it must come soon.

Diesel cars are the biggest contaminate of the atmosphere and we must stop it. There are plans to get rid of diesel in a few years time but that may be too late. No-one cares about the contamination that diesel causes to our atmosphere and we will suffer tremendously in the future.

Climate change is another big problem that has caused such bad weather in Spring. In the summer the temperatures will rise to unprecedented levels as it did last year, but it will be worse this year.  We cannot predict what will happen in the summer but it will be very hot.

All over the world we see bad storms and flooding in America, the Far East, and famine in Africa. People are dying by the hundreds in Africa because there is no food and water. What are we to do!

In the west we drive around in cars without thinking what it does to the atmosphere, and in a few years we will all be wearing masks as they do China. We have to change the way we live on this Earth or it will choke us to death. Already we have a huge wave of contamination surrounding the world in the atmosphere and so long as we continue the way we are it will never change.

We have to do something to get the world back to what it was years ago, and that means banning diesel cars, and cleaning up the smoke that issues from factories for they are second in the contamination of the skies.

We have a long way to go if we are to continue living on this planet. Otherwise we see the end of mankind on the Earth and it will become a planet without human kind.

The Weather

Posted in America, Conservation, England, Environment, European Union, Human Rights, News, Politics, USA with tags , , , , on 25/02/2018 by floroy1942

Never in human history have we seen weather like this winter. Floods have wrecked huge areas of the United States and its getting worse. We see flooding and high temperatures in many countries across the world, and it will not stop because of the contamination of our atmosphere.

In Britain we have a winter that is hardly credible, with snow and cold beating all previous years, and Spring is almost upon us. I would not like to live in England at this time for it is so cold, and the coming of snowstorms is on the horizon.

All across the world the weather is getting worse year on year, and it is all due to the contamination we pump into the atmosphere from cars, trucks and factories. Never in human history, except for the ice age, have we seen such bad weather.

The summers are getting hotter and hotter, with temperatures up close to the fifties in some areas. How will humans survive in this weather? I am glad I am 75 and will not be around to see the future.

In places like Africa people are dying from starvation and the excessive heat in their thousands, and we do nothing about it. Soon this will be in many countries as the temperatures increase. Africa was a country that people can grow crops and feed themselves, but now it it is a wasteland due to the heat.

It is a sad fact that we are destroying our world with so many cars and lorries on the roads. They pump out poisonous gases that are effecting our climate and we are not doing anything about it. There is the prospect of electric cars which will reduce the poisonous gases getting into the atmosphere, but that is a long time away. Once these have been introduced it will take years for the contamination to clear from the skies, if it ever does.

We have to do something to save our planet and soon, for in a few years it will be too late, and we will all start dying from the contamination. It is time for people to realise what is happening to our world and do something about it.

Heading For Disasater

Posted in America, Britain, Conservation, England, Environment, European Union, Health, Human Rights, News, Summit with tags , , , , on 24/02/2018 by floroy1942

What is the world coming to? All across the world we see demonstrations by people, and war. I think the world is going crazy! When I was young the world was at peace with almost no demonstrations, and the only thing was the tension between the West and Russia. But things have changed dramatically in this modern era.

Now we see demonstrations across the world and war in the Middle East, and it never stops. The United Nations have been doing nothing except call for peace between nations and they are completely ignored. We have tensions between Russia and the United States and this could lead to war between the two nations. The Russians are backing the war in the Middle East despite the actions in the United Nations.

It is time for the United Nations to do something about it. All countries have been in agreement with the end to the war in the Middle East, and yet the Russians veto the proposals put forward by all other countries. It is time to stop this, and have to relinquish the moment when Russia can veto all actions taken by the majority of countries. We need to have a majority verdict by all nations, instead of one country being able to stop the procedures taken by the United Nations.

I have lived now for seventy-five years, and the changes in the world have been catastrophic. Things are getting worse and worse as countries fight each other, and terrorism is the only thing that is causing this. Although we have seen demonstrations across the world where people are not happy with their governments and the way they do things. Europe is the only safe conglomerate of nations where we do not see mass demonstrations against the governments. There are of course other countries where peace, to a certain extent is quiet, but not all across the world. In South America we see daily the news of mass demonstrations in countries like Venezuela  where the country is ruled by a despot.

It is time the world returned to peace, and if it is necessary, the United Nations should step in with an international force to stop the fighting in Syria. In other parts of the world the same thing should apply where nations are at war.

All across the world we have seen disastrous weather that is tearing the world apart. Flooding and destruction have been happening and we have to do something about it. Before long the world will become unlivable if this weather continues. It is all due to our contamination of the atmosphere that surrounds us.

There are too many cars in the world and this is destroying our atmosphere. Already in China people are wearing masks to stop the contamination from getting into their lungs, and before long we will see this spreading to other parts of the world.

We have to cut down on the number of vehicles across the world to prevent more contamination. Laws need to be passed where it is necessary to ban diesel vehicles, and all families should only have one vehicle. This will greatly reduce the contamination of our atmosphere, and within maybe fifty years we will see relatively clean air. This will allow people to breath properly and reduce the lung disease of many of our citizens.

The trouble is, governments around the world are not doing enough to clean up the atmosphere, and they are afraid to implement the changes necessary. But if we as a human race are to survive on this planet this needs to be done. All nations need to agree on the conditions to clean up our atmosphere, but that will never happen. We will go on in the same old way until the human race is finished.

Roy.
