The Menace Of Tax Havens

Posted in America, Britain, European Union, Germany, Modern World, News, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Theft, USA with tags , , , , on 17/11/2016 by floroy1942

I read an article on Yahoo today that says all tax havens should be quarantined. That I certainly agree with! While you and I try as best we can to make enough money to live on, the rich are hiding away their ill-gotten gains in tax havens so they don’t have to pay tax. This has an astounding affect on all of us.

The gist of the article says that all tax havens should be cut off from the global financial system. “They call for making it illegal for anyone in cooperative countries to have an account in a non-cooperative jurisdiction, or for someone in a cooperating country to be a shareholder in a corporation in a non-cooperative one.”

This means that it would be illegal for people to stow away money in a country or system that is not open to the world of finance. All these areas must be open to outside scrutiny and in effect, global auditors must be able to scrutinize all bank accounts wherever they are.

This idea of hiding away trillions of dollars from the tax people in any country in the world is a scandal, for if these politicians and businessmen paid the taxes that were due, most of the world’s monetary problems would be solved.

These billions of dollars could be used to aid the poorer countries of the world, feed those dying of hunger, and solve the sickness that is so prevalent in many countries in the world. Without a doubt, it could be used to solve the major debt problems across the world.

The sad thing is, these ultra-rich people just let it lie there in these accounts and never think of doing some good with their money. There are exceptions of course like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet who use their billions to do good in the world, its just a pity that all the ultra-rich do not think the same. Most of these people have more money than they could spend in three lifetimes, but they prefer to hide it away and do nothing with it. The phrase “It’s all mine, mine, mine!” comes to mind. It’s more about bucking the system and being able to brag about the fact that they are billionaire’s.

I have for a long time advocated that all these multi-billionaires should pay taxes on their often ill-gotten gains and do some good with it, but will it ever happen? There is a slim hope now that all these people will be caught with their ill-gotten gains if this plan goes ahead. Let’s hope it does.

Ignore Islamic State At Your Peril!

Posted in Al Quada, America, Britain, European Union, Immigrants, Islamic State, News, Saudi Arabia, Terrorism, United Nations with tags , , , , on 24/05/2015 by floroy1942

The United Nations and world governments reaction to the advances made by Islāmic State (I.S.) in Syria and Iraq are to say the least, shameful. Everybody watches the TV news or reads reports in the newspapers about the advances they are making and just shrug their shoulders: “What’s it got to do with me?”

The Way Things Stand Its No Idle Threat!

The Way Things Stand It’s No Idle Threat!

Few people seem to realize that these Muslim terrorists are fast becoming a global threat as they spread their influence to more and more countries. Informed reports stated this last week that recruitment by I.S. is far outstripping those killed in battle. Kill ten and they get a hundred more recruits!

So what does this say to you? “Oh its nothing to worry about – It’s a Muslim problem – It’s all happening far away from our country!” Typical of what people think about the crisis as no-one gives a second thought to what is happening. But to be honest, I think we are fools to ignore this situation.

Deadly Mosque Attack By I.S.

Deadly Mosque Attack By I.S.

A year ago, who would have thought that Saudi Arabia, the most stable country in the entire Middle East would be the hotbed of violence it is today? A month or so ago I.S. said they were going to target the country because of the Saudi Air Force attacks against militants in Yemen, and they have. Last weeks mosque bombing is but the tip of the iceberg of what may well come. Muslim terrorists have used the tactic of fermenting trouble among the indigenous population in lands they wish to target for several years. It happened in Egypt, Libya, Nigeria, Kenya, Yemen and many other places across the globe.

All they needed to do was send in a few agitators who would stir up the feelings of the locals and an insurrection is born. Muslims are easily agitated into a mob even though half of them do not know what they are agitating against. These people are by tradition easily excitable, as we have seen many times in the past where someone whips up a mob against anyone they see as having ‘insulted Allah’.

Insulting Message To I.S.

Insulting Message To I.S.

Apart from a small number of countries assisting Iraq with bombing I.S. camps, supplying arms and ammunition, not a single government is concerning itself with this menace. And meanwhile, I.S. is slowly but surely spreading its influence to other countries.

Europeans should be asking themselves how long it will be before we see the first I.S. attack on our soil. At the moment we are concentrating on rescuing migrants from boats in the Mediterranean Sea and giving them a home. The point has already been raised about how many of these people are I.S. terrorists mingling with the refugees to get a free passage here.

How Do You Tell If Some Of These Belong To I.S.?

How Do You Tell If Some Of These Belong To I.S.?

The migrants are coming across in such numbers that it is impossible to vet each one before allowing them to enter. Who knows how many there are hidden among the refugees, dozens, hundreds? I am sure we will find out in the next year or so.

There are more than enough Muslim agitators on European soil to start a campaign against us. All it takes is someone from this group to organize them and bolster their hatred for the people who gave them a home before they begin a campaign of bombing and attacking innocent civilians.

On top of this, we also have people who left Europe to go and fight with I.S. in Syria and Iraq that we know have been trained in making explosive vests and car bombs. These people have also been filtering back into Europe, and the authorities know that several hundred have returned already without being stopped at the border.

In my view, (you can agree or not) we are in the build-up phase to an internal fight against terrorism right here in Europe. We have in excess of 56 million Muslims living among us, and a large majority would be happy to see Europe become an Islāmic State, although most would not admit it openly.

It only takes one group like I.S. operating in this way, quietly and behind the scenes, to organize a rebellion in any country, especially among Muslims.

But what to do to combat this menace? Well, considering the world-wide problem we have currently with Muslim extremists, the only way to deal with it, as I have said many times before, is with a multi-national U.N. task force that goes from country to country and wipes out all the terrorist groups. The problems are not only in Africa and the Middle East, the areas that grab the headlines, but also in places like Afghanistan, Pakistan, China, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the list just goes on and on.

Symbolic Of What The U.N. Is Capable Of - NOTHING!

Symbolic Of What The U.N. Is Capable Of – NOTHING!

Each day the problem is getting bigger but no-one seems interested enough to take solid action. All the world governments express their sympathy with the various countries and take in millions of refugees fleeing the violence, but that could well be exacerbating the problem. No-one takes the time to realize that stopping the violence will solve the refugee problem in a short time.

Everyone on the planet should have the right to live in peace, but that is something far away from the present day, and unless we make our governments come together to stamp out groups like Islāmic State and their ideological followers, we never will. Go in peace.

Slave Labour In Saudi Arabia

Satinah Binti Jumadi Ahmad

Satinah Binti Jumadi Ahmad

It seldom reaches the news pages, but in Saudi Arabia thousands of young Indonesian girls and women are working as virtual slaves in the homes of wealthy Saudi’s.

Until recently it was common practice for the family they were working for to confiscate their passports and keep them a virtual prisoner. They were paid little for working almost 24 hour a day and time off was almost non-existent. They were totally at the mercy of those that ’employed’ them.

Reading an article from last year I came across the fact that one such person, 41 year-old Satinah Binti Jumadi Ahmad had eventually snapped and killed her employer, stole 37,970 Saudi Arabian riyal (£6,140) and fled the house. Although she has always claimed she acted in self-defence, she was found guilty of murder and sentenced to death by the Saudi court – unless her family paid the sum of seven million riyal in ‘blood money’ to the family. From the report it would seem that this is acceptable practice under Islāmic Law.

Her family immediately tried to raise this ‘blood money’ from donations but fell far short of the target. Thankfully the Indonesian government stepped in and paid the al-Garib family their ransom.

Saudi Execution

Saudi Execution

From the report it seems that it is not uncommon for Indonesian women to be in this situation, for at the time of the report there are some 246 migrant workers on death row awaiting execution. The Indonesian government says it has so far saved 176 migrants from the death penalty by paying the ransom.

After saving Satinah Binti Jumadi Ahmad the Indonesian government entered into negotiations with the Saudi government to try and improve the living standards of its citizens working in the country. According to the Human Rights Watch, in February of this year negotiations were agreed that allowed Indonesian domestic workers to keep their passports, communicate with families, have time off and get paid monthly. Mind you, for the government to agree to this and have the affected families follow the new rules is something else again.

With all their money it would hardly seem credible that wealthy Saudi families would stoop so low as to keep what accounts to a slave in their house. It is clear that in Saudi immigrants have little or no rights whatsoever. It does not surprise me that eventually some individuals snap and kill their employer when forced to work under such conditions. Having to take beatings day after day is not what I would call ’employment’.

Saudi Cleric Bans Snowmen.

Posted in America, Britain, Canada, Environment, Europe, Insanity, Muslim, News, Religion, Saudi Arabia with tags , , , , on 13/01/2015 by floroy1942

A Saudi Arabian religious cleric has banned the building of a snowman in the wintry north because it “promotes ‘lustiness’ and eroticism.” All I can say is if you tried making love to a snowman you will most likely get frostbite in your nether regions.

No Snowmen or Women

No Snowmen or Women

The prominent Saudi Arabian cleric, Sheikh Mohammed Saleh al-Munajjid, when asked on a religious website if it was permissible to build a snowman replied, “It is not permitted to make a statue out of snow, even by way of play and fun.” He said that to build a snowman was to create an image of a human being, and this action was considered sinful under strict Sunni religious law.

He wrote, “God has given people space to make whatever they want which does not have a soul, including trees, ships, fruits, buildings and so on.”

Snowman For Women

Snowman For Women – Lust Lust!

Needless to say, the ruling did not go down well with some followers who poked fun at it. One posted a photo of a man in formal Arab garb holding the arm of a “snow bride” wearing a bra and lipstick. “The reason for the ban is fear of sedition,” he wrote. Another complained, “People are looking for a fatwa (religious ruling) for everything in their lives, and clerics want to interfere in everything in the lives of others through a fatwa.”

Snow woman For Men

Snow Woman For Men – OOO – Baby!

He did however have his supporters, one of whom wrote, “May God preserve the scholars, for they enjoy sharp vision and recognise matters that even Satan does not think about.”

I guess its a case of ‘different strokes for different folks’.
