Everywhere except Europe is in a mess! Once the world was a peaceful place, and today it is a controversy of war and demonstrations. There are battles going over the whole world and we must put a stop to it. In South America there are demonstrations in most countries and they are not giving up. In the Middle East and the Far East there are battles raging with the government. Muslims are trying to get a hold of country after country while the Army fights against them.

The United Nations should do something about it and stop the fighting once and for all. When will the world return to peace? In the Far East there are Muslims fighting to get hold of a country and this is not going well. The same is going on the Middle East and they will not win.

The United Nations are sitting on their backsides and doing nothing except giving out rhetoric. They should call for nations to be active in forming an Army and wipe these terrorists. The whole world is in turmoil and this cannot happen in this modern day and age. We cannot sustain this as the terrorists gain a hold in many places and torture and put in prison those who are against them. We have to do something to stop these wars going on and the only solution is the United Nations. But they sit on their backsides and do nothing.

We the people must do something to wake them up and get them to stop these wars raging across the planet. For if we do not then the people will see the end of this civilisation. It time for the whole world to back the U.N. and to get them fighting these terrorists. It is the only way we can beat these terrorists.

Another thing is trying to save the planet. We are polluting the atmosphere like nobody’s business, and we will all die if the situation gets worse. Our seas are filling up with plastic bottles, our atmosphere is getting worse with the pollution from chemical plants, factories and cars. We have a long way to go before we can clean up the planet.

Electric cars will make a difference if everybody buys one, but that will not solve the plastic waste in the oceans, as everybody leaves their plastic bottles on the beaches which will wash out to sea and the pollute the oceans. We need to get a grip on these plastic bottles and ban them altogether. Whales and fish swallow these plastic bottles and then we can see the end of fishing.

This will affect so many manufactures across the whole world, but something must be done about it. I saw on TV news that hundreds and thousands of plastic bottles washed up on beaches and they won’t go away. Most companies are gathering these bottles for use again, but that will not solve the problem. We have to get rid of these plastic bottles for good.

The world is in mess and we have to do something about it. I am 75 and will not live long enough to watch the world go down the drain. We have to make big plans to get the world back on its feet. Otherwise this world will end and become a planet without humans.

Wars are happening all through Africa, Syria and the Far East and it is mostly to do with terrorists. How are going to stop them? The United Nations should step in and end it all so that the world can return to peace. But they do nothing about it except discuss the terrorists.

During the Korean War the UN stepped in and put an end to the fighting, but now they just sit an their backsides and do nothing. Why do we have the United Nations? For they do nothing except talk and take no action. It is time we had a new leader of the U.N. who could do something about this. There are 193 members of the U.N. and no-one does anything about the terrible wars going on in Syria and Africa, and also the Far East. We need the membership to do something about it.

We need to collect soldiers from different countries to go in and stop this many wars around the world. The United Nations can stop these wars going on and save a lot of people from death. It is not so hard to gather soldiers from various countries and let them do their job. but all they do is talk talk talk and let the terrorists kill people. We are not stopping them from killing other people, on the contrary the U.N. is ignoring them.

We have to get many armies the engage the enemy wherever they are, and to stop killing innocent civilians. At the moment the U.N. is a shambles for they do nothing except put some soldiers near the borders to stop the terrorists. But most of them are not within rifle range of the terrorists and they cannot stop them, and some die.

The U.N. must wake up and do something about all the trouble across the world. For if they do nothing and many more people will get killed and for what, they are innocent civilians.

The Veto Scandal

Posted in America, Britain, Equality, European Union, Islamic Revolution, Israel, News, Security Council, Summit, United Nations with tags , , , , on 13/04/2017 by floroy1942

Is it any wonder that Russia vetoed the Security Councils resolution on the Syria chemical attack? The veto has been a thorn in the side of the United Nations for the last forty years.

Russian Veto

In my view the only reason Russia is backing Assad is to retain their military bases in Syria. Practically the whole world  blames Assad for the chemical attacks on his own people but Russia still stands by him, and has done since the beginning of the conflict.

Russia has a naval base in Syria on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea given to them by Assad and they don’t want to lose it, which is why they are backing him.

Negotiations have been going on for years trying to stop Assad from using chemical weapons on his own people, but all have failed because of Russia’s backing.

Founders of the United Nations

The veto goes back to the time when the United Nations was formed by Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin after the Second World War and they initiated the veto to stop other countries from putting the world in danger. It has survived up to the present day and many of the decisions made by various countries have stopped positive action being taken against nations that have caused problems. The only exception was the Korean War which took place in 1950. Here the United Nations acted as it was supposed to and stopped the Communists from taking over the whole Korean peninsula.

But when you get to the present day the veto has caused more problems in the world. The United States vetoed any action against Israel during the war with Egypt in 1973 among many others, and Russia has constantly vetoed any action against Assad.

In my view the veto should be scrapped, for all countries must have a say in how the world is run. If it is, then we can stop many conflicts around the world before they get started.

I have for a long time said that the United Nations has a duty to put an end to the ISIS threat once and for all. It should gather a group of nations and go in and wipe them out. Once ISIL has been thoroughly defeated then the world can return to peace, and Islam will get the message that they will never end up ruling the world. Assad should be arrested and put on trial for the atrocities he has committed against his own people.

It is only by the concerted efforts of all countries that this debacle will end. The sad thing is, it will never end until Russia stops backing Assad.

Sad to say, the United Nations has lost its original mandate and become nothing more than a talking shop that does not achieve anything when it comes to world peace. The true purpose of its foundation was lost years ago, and today it does nothing more than verbally ‘condemn’ actions by countries or groups that want to cause trouble.

The Syrian war has been going on for years, but if the United Nations had stepped in positively at the beginning it would have been long over.

It is time for the United Nations to start acting as it was intended, and prevent wars breaking out. If it does not, then we might as well scrap it.

Israel – The Slow But Sure Land Grab.

Posted in America, Arab, Britain, European Union, Israel, Justice, Netanyahu, News, Palestine, United Nations with tags , , , , on 03/02/2017 by floroy1942

What would you say if your neighboring country slowly, bit by bit, started taking over your land and built settlements in your country? Naturally you would be outraged and start doing something about it. So why is the world not doing something about the gradual takeover of Palestinian land by Israel?

Ever since 1947 Israel has expanded its territory into Palestine by building settlements and towns on land that does not belong to them. The Palestinians have complained to the United Nations, and every major country in the world, but all complaints have fallen on deaf ears. If this keeps up, within a few years Palestine will no longer exist because it will have been taken over in its entirety by the Israelis.

In excess of 600,000 Jews live in about 140 settlements built since Israel annexed the West Bank and East Jerusalem after the 1967 war, all on Palestinian land. On Wednesday Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was moving ahead with plans to set up a new settlement on the West Bank ‘for the first time in more than two decades’.

The announcement came as Israeli police cleared protesters from the unauthorised settler outpost of Amona. Israel’s Supreme Court has ordered Amona to be dismantled because it was built on private Palestinian land. So why have they not done this before?

The United Nations has for years condemned the land grab by Israel, but they have taken no action to put a stop to it except to vocally condemn the actions of the Israeli government.

How would the American’s feel if Canada or Mexico began building settlements over the border and claiming it for themselves? You can bet your life there would be an uproar of protestation, and it might even get to the stage of military action.

No such thing is taking place in Israel and Palestine, for the Palestinian cries of protest have all fallen on deaf ears for years, thanks to the backing of the United States who are solidly behind Israel. Now with Trump in charge we may see a change in attitude by the United States.

 

The Shrinking Map Of Palestine

The Shrinking Map Of Palestine

When Israel went to war with the surrounding Arab states in 1967 and 1973 they won convincingly and claimed the Sinai desert as their own. Even when Palestinian fighters fought against Israel to try and save their land they were called terrorists and quickly defeated. Since that time the Israeli borders have pushed back steadily until today, Palestine has all but disappeared.

You can be pretty certain that the small areas still under Palestinian control will disappear in the next few years, and Palestine will be wiped from the map completely to become the State of Israel.

Don’t for one minute think that I am a Palestinian sympathiser for I am not, but this injustice has to have a voice somewhere.

People Die While Politicians Argue

The Challenge - Are Our Politicians Up To It?

The Challenge – Are Our Politicians Up To It?

How much longer must the people wait before the politicians take the inevitable action to stop the terrorist groups indiscriminately killing across the world? How long must the people of Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Nigeria and the other 139 countries in the world accept the death and destruction caused by terrorist groups operating in their countries? How much longer will the world’s politicians make excuses for not initiating decisive action together to wipe out these people?

Questions, questions, questions, but sadly no answers from those we have voted in to govern us, and look after the security of the country we live in. For far too long we have heard of the atrocities carried out by groups like Islamic State and Boko Haram, and innocent people are dying or fleeing daily.

Not A Difinitive Answer

Air Strikes – Not A Definitive Answer

True, an international coalition led by the USA, which includes five Arab states and several European countries are carrying out bombing raids on Islamic State positions in Iraq and Syria, but even the military know this is not enough. It has failed to stop the atrocities carried out by these sub-humans. I was going to say ‘animals’, but that would be an insult to animals everywhere.

Meanwhile Europe is being overwhelmed by immigrants fleeing the fighting, which is eventually going to cause many problems. Our politicians are busy talking about the crisis but its all hot air and no action.

David Cameron is the only public figure to actually say out loud that we need to attack the source of the problem and thereby stop the mass exodus from countries like Syria and Iraq. As you would expect, not one person took any notice of what he said, but he is right!

The UN - Useless

The UN – Useless

The United Nations has said and done nothing to solve this world crisis. All we hear from them is complaints from the UNHCR about how some countries are treating refugees fleeing to Europe!

This is a body formed to ensure world peace for crying out loud, but what do they do, keep their mouths shut, do nothing, and pick up their fat paychecks at the end of every month. We might as well fill the UN with fat pigs and let them roam around the building, for they would be about as useful as these incompetent idiots.

And Still They Come

And Still They Come

It is time for someone to stand up and call the nations of the world together to deal with this Islamic Jihad threat once and for all. Only when they are all dead will this threat disappear, and then the refugees can return home.

What do we have to look forward to otherwise? Years of wasted effort in fighting these people, thousands more dead, and several million refugees all wanting to come to Europe now that the precedent has been set, leading to the total destruction of the European economy.

We have had enough of silence from the UN, it is now time for positive action Ban Ki Moon!

The Great Syrian Refugee Hoax

Posted in Afghanistan, Britain, European Union, Immigration, Islamic State, News, Pakistan, Politics, Terrorism, UK with tags , , , , on 08/09/2015 by floroy1942

The European Union is currently accepting tens of thousands of refugees monthly who claim to be Syrian. We are willing to accept these people because they are fleeing violence and death, but how many are really from Syria?

Pakistani And Bangladeshi Refugees Arriving In Lesbos.

Pakistani And Bangladeshi Refugees Arriving In Lesbos.

Evidence has now come to light that very many are indeed not, and are nothing more than economic refugees from places like Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, along with some African States. Serbian border police say that 90% of those arriving from Macedonia, some 3,000 a day, claim they are Syrian although they have no documents to prove it.

“You can see that something is fishy when most of those who cross into Serbia enter January first as the date of their birth,” said border police officer Miroslav Jovic. “Guess that’s the first date that comes to their mind.” The chief of the European Union border agency Frontex, Fabrice Leggeri, said that trafficking in fake Syrian passports has increased. “A lot of people enter Turkey with fake Syrian papers, because they know that they’ll get asylum in the EU more easily,” said.

Pointing out a black African, a Syria refugee said, “There are too many people saying we are from Syria, but he is not from Syria. He is black and he said ‘I am from Syria.’ Unbelievable.” German customs officials have intercepted many packages of passports sent to Germany, some fake and some genuine.

Misguided People. Genuine Refugees Yes, But Economic Ones No!

Misguided People. Genuine Refugees Yes, But Economic Ones No!

Serbian border patrols have found many discarded passports, identity cards, driving licences and other identity documents in fields along the border fence put up by Hungary. Most of the documents are from Pakistani’s and people from Bangladesh. From this it is clear that many refugees are from countries that are not at war, and are therefore here purely for economic reasons, and yet there are still some misguided souls among us that wish to welcome them.

Among those who had no second thoughts about ditching their true identity was Rafik from Pakistan.”I’m leaving my old life behind,” said Rafik, who gave only his first name because he feared repercussions when applying for asylum in Germany. “I’m starting a new one. I don’t have a passport, nor any other identity paper,” he said, as he dashed under the fence into Hungary. “Let’s see which country they will choose to kick me back to.”

These people believe they have a greater chance of being accepted if they have forged papers, or none at all and say they are from Syria. This is the main reason why we have so many tens of thousands of ‘refugees’ entering Europe.

No Families

No Families

A very, very large portion of them are bogus and it remains to be seen what happens in the next year. As I have said previously, the largest portion of these refugees are young to middle-aged men without families. You can see that on every piece of news footage and it makes me think about where this will lead us in the future.

Another danger is that when we allow all these young and middle-aged men into Europe, they will set about bringing their families here too. So we accept one hundred thousand refugees, and within a year or two that swells to over half a million as their families arrive. What chance do our Social, Housing and Health Services have when that happens?

Islamic State Perhaps?

Islamic State Perhaps?

It is known by the authorities that Islamic State fighters are crossing into Europe disguised as refugees, so it makes me wonder what will happen in the next year or two. With so many fit young men entering, we could end up with a major problem within a short time.

While I feel extremely sorry for those who are fleeing the violence in Syria and Iraq and would welcome them with open arms, we are putting ourselves in extreme danger by accepting these economic refugees.

No matter what Angela Merkel says, there are not enough jobs around to take all these people, and their presence will cripple all Social Services in a short space of time.

I also find it extremely discomforting to hear that after a certain period these people will be given permission to stay permanently. This is not the right path! We should be prepared to give them residence only until the troubles in their homeland are solved but not give them permanent citizenship. This may sound harsh, but it is the right way to go.

Birthrate Comparison

Birthrate Comparison

The birthrate of the Islamic people far outstrips that of indigenous Europeans by five or six to one, so what does that say about the European continent in about twenty years time? Within that time frame they may become nearly 50% of the population, and in a few more years will outnumber us. That will be about the time when Europe becomes an Islamic state.

Refugees In Arab States

Refugees In Arab States

You also have to look at what would happen if the roles were reversed. Suppose that war breaks out in Europe and hundreds of thousands of people head south for asylum in the Arab States of the Middle East. Does anyone really think they would accept us with open arms? We are all Christian nations, and in many Islamic states Christianity is outright forbidden on pain of death.

These Middle Eastern States have already closed off their borders with Iraq and Syria and will not accept any refugees, although Jordan, the exception, does have a small number of refugee camps for them, but it is the only country.

While we are duty bound, which I accept, to help refugees from war-torn countries like Iraq and Syria, Europe is now being swamped with bogus refugees who are here only to improve their living standards. While you cannot condemn them for that, they are doing it at the cost of the European economy, and pretty soon all of us will be in dire straits.

European Union

European Union

While the decisions to take in refugees have been taken by some individual governments, the dictates from the European Council have also been a problem in this area. This is one reason why Britain is to hold a referendum in 2017 on leaving the union. This would make Britain an individual country that is not under the heel of those in Brussels.

A recent poll suggests that now 51% of British people are for leaving the European Union, up from 46% in a poll taken last July. Although I never put much faith in these polls, it is an indication of the trend in British thinking. Many fear the current trend in the refugee situation, and as many as 22% of the ‘No’ voters said they could change their minds if this situation continues.

The Endless Stream

The Endless Stream

It is fairly certain that the refugee crisis is far from over, because the more people we accept into Europe, the more will try to come here. The figures may well drop as the winter sets in, but you can bet your life that next spring it will start all over again. If there is even a vague chance of being accepted in Europe with their entire family, they will try.

The Future?

The Future?

The only thing that can stop that will be if the Islamic State terrorists currently moving into Europe start attacks on the continent. If that happens we could see major military action in many European countries as our armed forces are made to fight a domestic war in their own country. One Islamic State source has reported that several weeks ago at least four thousand I.S. had landed in Europe disguised as refugees. How many more are there in this current influx of people? As I recently reported, I.S. is now telling those who want to go to Syria and Iraq to fight with them to stay and begin carrying out terrorist attacks in their home countries.

Food for thought!

Hungary Takes The Lead

Recent reports show that Hungary is about to take a step that all European countries should take. Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto told reporters on Tuesday “We plan to register all migrants regardless of the fact that we are not the first member state they enter. We will register everyone who submits the request for asylum. If the decision is positive the refugee can stay, but if it is not positive we cannot give shelter to the economic migrants, we cannot bear that burden, so they will be returned where they come from.”

It is good to hear that finally one country has the balls to send economic migrants back where they came from. This is something I have advocated for some time, simply because Europe cannot sustain the hundreds of thousands who come here thinking we are a soft touch.

Mass Killing By ISIS Elements

Mass Killing By ISIS Elements

I agree that we should help those who are fleeing the barbarism of terror groups like Islamic State, the Taliban and Boko Haram, but a great majority are here purely for the perks. They know that once they get to settle in a country like Britain, Holland, Sweden, France or Germany for example, they will be cared for, housed, fed, and given whatever medical help they need.

On news reports you can see that more than half are single young men without a family, and you can bet your cotton socks that once they are accepted, their entire family will follow them. It is without a doubt true what Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto says, the more we let in the more will try to come here until the entire continent is totally overrun.

Here is what some of the general public think of the crisis:

Looking at the “migrants” shut out of the railway station in Budapest – they are not refugees, they are mostly all young men – not elderly, or women, or children that you might expect to be fleeing conflict, but young men who surely should be looking to fight for their country, not come to Europe to chant at and fight us!

Finally one country has the balls to refuse them entry and send them packing. Good on Ya Hungry. The rest of Europe watch and learn, this is what we the General Public and true Europeans have been wanting our Governments to show there strength and send them all packing back to where the came from!!!

Europe is becoming a ‘dumping ground’. for the worlds flotsam and jetsam and as their numbers continue increasing at an alarming rate so the countries of Europe will descend further and further into decline. Britain cannot absorb any more ‘economic passengers’ as they are already overloading our schools, hospitals and doctors surgeries. These people are not paying guests but are a drain on the DHSS, local housing and social services. They turn up with nothing in their pockets, put nothing into the economy and expect the British tax payers to keep them housed, fed and clothed. The government must stop treating these people like charitable organisations and do what Hungary are now doing and return them all back to where they came from.

If this migrant crisis continues it will break up the EU as already there is fighting among European leaders. The good news is we won’t be needing a referendum on whether or not we stay in Europe after all.

Fighting to Board A Train

Fighting to Board A Train

This just goes to show how ‘out of touch’ the politicians in Europe are with the people. Today (3/9) it appears that the government has at last opened up the Budapest railway station to the migrants who are now being allowed to travel on to Germany. Some have been stopped at the border and are intended to be housed in a refugee camp, but they have refused.

It is way past time that the E.U. started separating out the economic refugees from the genuine ones before the entire continent is overrun. All economic refugees should be sent back immediately, because if we continue to accept them the floodgates will be seen to be wide open and many more will come.

It is really a replay of what Tony Blair did to Britain with his ‘Multi-Cultural Britain’ Policy, but Europe-wide. I am of the opinion that if you trace all this back to its roots, Tony Blair must carry much of the blame for Europe’s current troubles because he set the precedent.

Europe is already struggling with the number of migrants that have been accepted, and Holland for one is a country that is about to toughen up its acceptance measures. The government is to cut off food supplies and shelter to all those who are not accepted as genuine refugees, i.e. economic refugees.

Mark Rutte

Failed asylum seekers will be given a ‘few weeks’ of help but after that they would then either be deported or sent away to fend for themselves. From November, the centre-right coalition of Prime Minister Mark Rutte, which competes for votes with the popular anti-immigration party of Geert Wilders, wants to close 30 regional “bed, bath and bread” shelters where asylum seekers have been able till now to get help on the basis of need.

The U.N.’s Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination added to outside criticism of the Dutch policy, saying basic needs of migrants should be provided unconditionally. “As long as they are in the Netherlands, they have to enjoy minimum standards of living,” said Ion Diaconu, who helped write the U.N. report. If that is the case why then is the United Nations not helping to solve the problem instead of sitting on its hands and doing nothing?

Rutte responded on Friday that it would be “crazy” to offer permanent shelter to people who refused to leave. “We are talking about the group that can go back, whose governments would take them back, but they don’t want to go back.”

Holland, one of the smallest countries in Europe is the eighth-largest destination for asylum seekers, accounting for 4 percent of total arrivals in 2014. Total applications last year rose 87 percent to 24,535. The country took in hundreds of thousands of migrants from Morocco and Turkey in the 1960s and 1970s before tightening its policy over the past decade.

Routes To Germany

Routes To Germany

Most migrants wish to enter Germany, Sweden or Denmark and many have been accepted, but there is a growing anti-immigration feeling in these countries as the numbers get bigger and bigger. Poll results given out today indicate that half the inhabitants of Germany are very worried about the number of refugees being accepted into the country.

There can be little doubt that some time in the very near future this swarm of migrants must be brought to a halt because the economy, the health services and housing problems are beginning to bite hard. Very soon the economy of the entire European continent will be in big trouble if we continue to accept and provide shelter, food and health care to these people.

There is only one answer to this entire problem. All the terrorist organizations like Islamic State and Boko Haram must be totally annihilated by an international effort so these people can return home. Otherwise Europe will drown in a sea of immigrants.

The people of Europe have had enough of this problem, and to see yet more tens of thousands arriving every month means eventually that the ‘kettle will boil over’ and there will be civil unrest on a scale not seen before. The politicians need to act now to curb the flow.

Are The Iran Nuclear Negotiations Worth It?

Posted in America, Britain, European Union, Insurgents, Iran, Israel, News, Nuclear Proliferation, Terrorism, United Nations with tags , , , , on 09/04/2015 by floroy1942

Do you believe that Iran is seeking to make nuclear weapons or that, as they say, it is for peaceful purposes only? This thorny issue has been of major concern to many countries for the past twelve years. For more than a decade negotiations have been on-going, and in my view are still far from an agreement.

Says It All Really

Says It All Really

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

In a recent statement Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said, “I have never been optimistic about negotiating with America. While I was not optimistic, I agreed with this particular negotiation and supported the negotiators.” He went on to say, “We will sign no agreement but the one that immediately abolishes all the economic sanctions on the first day of the implementation of the agreement.” It would seem he wants ‘to have his cake and eat it too’.

The negotiators on the other side of the table are insisting that sanctions will be lifted gradually once it is seen that Iran is abiding by the terms of the agreement. I would consider this to be a much more sensible approach than that stated by the Iranian Leader.

Iran's Nuclear Facilities

Iran’s Nuclear Facilities

To demand the removal of all sanctions on the day the agreement is signed is no guarantee that Iran will fully take the steps required to limit its nuclear programme.

There will need to be a system of inspections by the  The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to ensure conformance with the terms of the agreement, otherwise Iran could just continue with their activities in secret. This all takes time to arrange, and verification will be a long process. In my view, Iran has been stringing out these talks for more than ten years while in the background they have been continuing their quest for fissionable material. After so many years of negotiation it is highly possible they already have sufficient material to make at least one nuclear weapon, crude though it might be. It would be easy to hide this away somewhere out of sight of the IAEA inspectors.

Nuclear Site

Nuclear Site

It is worthy to note that when they first allowed these inspectors into their sites a couple of years ago they allowed inspections of all but one, and then some months later allowed the inspectors into that site while refusing them entry to another. Smells fishy to me, how about you?

If over the intervening years Iran has managed to make sufficient nuclear material for a bomb, what would they do with it?

Their two main enemies are Israel, and as stated on many an occasion, the United States of America. So if you were them, and had a secret nuclear bomb what would you do with it?

Tactics

Tactics

The whole idea of Iran becoming a nuclear nation is a horrific one, for being a staunch Islamic nation which has shown its hatred for the West on many occasions, with atomic weapons it is capable of anything.  Iran has been a very active supporter of terrorist groups across the world, supplying them with arms and funds for their inhuman activities, so who is to say they will not provide someone like al Quada or Islamic State with a nuclear weapon?

A Terrorists Dream

A Terrorists Dream

There are without doubt more than enough terrorist organizations that would love to have a nuclear weapon, no matter how crude. They make no secret about who their enemies are, and would love the chance to blow up Tel Aviv or New York for example. Who is to say Iran would not initiate a devastating nuclear attack on Israel, their sworn enemy?

'Diplomacy' At Work

‘Diplomacy’ At Work

Iran as a nuclear nation would also be a great threat in the Middle East, for it would give them control, and if you remember, that’s where most of the world’s oil comes from.

This insistence by Iran that all sanctions are lifted as soon as the agreement is signed could spell the end of the negotiations. It remains to be seen if the western powers will cave in to this, but if they do it will set a dangerous precedent.

Ever Heard Of FGM?

Posted in Afghanistan, Child Abuse, England, Europe, Human Rights, Immigrants, Justice, Muslim, News, Police with tags , , , , on 06/02/2015 by floroy1942

Its a fair bet that women will understand the initials FGM far more than men, mainly because it concerns them even though it is carried out by men. Confused? Never mind, FGM stands for female genitalia mutilation and is carried out in many countries to female children and adults.

FGM In Africa

FGM In Africa

Sometimes the reason for this is religious, and in other cases because it’s tradition, but either way the victim has no say in what happens to them. It is generally carried out on infants and girls up to the age of fifteen, but is occasionally inflicted on women after childbirth or marriage.

FGM In Practice

FGM In Practice

The actual procedure calls for the removal of the clitoris or labia, the narrowing of the vaginal opening; or piercing, scraping and burning of the genital area. This is more often than not carried out without anaesthetics, using knives, scissors, razor blades and, in some instances, even shards of glass. Normally the patient will be held down by three or four women while the ‘practitioner’ carries out the procedure.

To say that this is barbaric is without doubt an understatement, but the practice is widespread and not restricted to any single country or religion. It is most prevalent in Africa but also in Muslim countries of the Middle East, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, but it happens in Christian countries also.

In many other countries it is down to pure tradition. The practice of female genital mutilation dates back at least 2,000 years and was used in ancient Egypt as a sign of distinction amongst the aristocracy. In some cultures, it is valued as a rite of passage from childhood to womanhood but others believe it is a means of preserving a girl’s virginity until marriage. In most countries that still practice it FGM is a pre-requisite for marriage, with marriage being vital to a woman’s social and economic survival.

Within the Muslim faith Imams have been known to say that a woman does not have the right to enjoy sex with a man, although there is nothing to substantiate this in the Qur’an. They say a woman is born for the sole purpose to serve her master and bear his children.

FGM-women-who-have-been-cut-1024x887It is estimated that around 680,000 women and children have suffered this in Europe alone, and world-wide estimates by UNICEF put the figure at 125 million.

Statistics indicate that the United Kingdom, with 137,000 known cases, has twice as many such cases as any other country in Europe. France comes next with 61,000 cases followed by Italy, Holland, Germany, Austria and Belgium. These mutilations are restricted solely to immigrant families.

The tragic part about this whole affair is the lack of legal action against the perpetrators of this vile act. Only recently Britain made its first ever prosecution against British doctor Dhanuson Dharmasena, but he was this week acquitted of carrying out FGM on a new mother in London.

At his trial it came out that Doctor Dharmasena had to put in a stitch to stop a woman bleeding after emergency labour. The woman had previously suffered FGM when she was a child in Somalia. The doctors lawyer made the following statement: “My client strongly believes this case was nothing more than a show trial – an effort by the CPS to regain some confidence after failing to bring a prosecution despite FGM laws being in place since 1985.”

However, it would seem that the law in Europe is finally waking up to this scandal. European Commission figures to January 2012 show that in France 40 men have so far been charged, with six in Spain, two in Italy and Sweden, and the Netherlands and Denmark with one each. Pitifully few when you consider the number of children and women who have been brutalized.

Now why you may ask have so few been charged, well, in the UK the problem is that the police do not investigate such cases. The UK Parliament’s Home Affairs Committee (HAC) said,  “The police and others told us two factors contributed to the small number of investigations — a reliance on victims or witnesses to report to the police, which they are unlikely to do, and the failure of health, education and social care professionals to refer cases to the police where they suspect FGM to have taken place.”

One would imagine with this mutilation being as common as it is both the Social Services, Health Authorities and the Police would do more to bring charges against the individuals responsible. Any doctor who finds evidence of this practice during a routine examination should be duty bound to report it.

The HAC said in its report,  “A key feature of the French system is the use of regular medical check-ups on children up to the age of six, which includes examination of the genitals. The system is not mandatory, though receipt of social security is dependent on participation. Furthermore, girls identified as being at risk of FGM are required to have medical examinations every year, and whenever they return from abroad.”

It would appear that France has got its act together before any other European nation. We can only hope that more will follow their lead and put an end to this vile practice.

If I Hear The Word ‘Condemn’ One More Time….

Kenji Goto and Haruna Yukawa

I don’t know about you, but I am sick of hearing politicians world-wide ‘condemn’ acts of terrorism but doing nothing to stop them. Now after the tragic murder of the Japanese reporters  Kenji Goto and Haruna Yukawa by Islamic State (IS), once again they are trotting along to the nearest microphone to ‘condemn’ this latest atrocity. Despite the disturbing reason for this, it is almost becoming a game in modern politics to see who will win the race to the microphone.

I.S. Leader - Does He Look Impressed That  Politicians Condemn His Actions?

I.S. Leader – Does He Look Impressed That Politicians Condemn His Actions?

Do these idiots really imagine that religious fanatics like I.S., Boko Haram, al Quada and all the rest of these killers are the slightest bit interested that they ‘condemn’ their acts of barbarism? For more than a decade the world has had to put up with terrorist groups killing innocent people in this Muslim ‘Holy War’ and still no-one has had the guts to stand up and say: Enough is enough!

Abubakar Shekau Boko Haram Leader - He Doesn't Look Impressed Either!

Abubakar Shekau Boko Haram Leader – He Doesn’t Look Impressed Either!

After all the excesses of Boko Haram in Africa at least now the African Union is talking about coming together to do something positive about this group by forming a multi-national fighting force to go in and destroy them. I await the results.

The sad thing is, this should have happened when the true colours of this group became known. The same can be said for others like I.S., al Quada and the Taliban.

I believe part of the trouble is that people and governments all across the world have become so hardened to terrorism after all these years, that so long as it happens to other people in another country it is nothing more than a news item.  It is however a lot different when it happens in your own country as we saw in Paris a couple of weeks ago.

Victims Of The Baga Attack

But did anyone in Paris and across the world think for a moment about the 2,000 Nigerians killed in the town of Baga in a senseless slaughter by Boko Haram during the same period. Not One! All eyes were on Paris because that one hit home.

Many nations across the world have suffered at the hands of these religious fanatics who seem to think that Islam will rule the world and are determined to do whatever is necessary to achieve this goal. The sheer barbarism of these people has been highlighted often enough during the public displays of I.S. when they beheaded people on world-wide television.

I have to ask (yet again) how long does the world plan to stand by and put up with these atrocities before someone decides that we must do something positive to stop this senseless bloodshed?

In previous posts I have asked why the United Nations is not taking action to stop this outrage. Is it not time these politicians got off their fat backsides and did something positive for world peace?

The Aims Of The United Nations - Some Joke!

The Aims Of The United Nations – Some Joke!

 I am sure that if just one man had the balls to stand before the council and ask for volunteers from all nations to come together and strike at these people there would be volunteers enough.

There are some 27 countries world-wide that have, or are suffering attacks by Muslim extremists, and there have been 48 major terror attacks across the world from New York to the Philippines in the last twenty years.

Instead Of Parading Let Them Do Something Useful

Its not enough to say “Oh, it’s an Arab problem” and leave it at that, because now even Middle East countries are beginning to feel threatened by these terrorists. The I.S. leader has already been quoted as saying that attacks should begin in Saudi Arabia.

There will come a time when the whole Middle East will be embroiled in civil war if these people are allowed to continue. I am sure everyone will realize the grave danger of such a thing happening.

If You Are Not Going To Use Them For The Benefit Of The World Why Have Them?

If You Are Not Going To Use Them For The Benefit Of The World Why Have Them?

There can be little doubt that terrorism has become a world problem, and as such it must be dealt with by a coming together of military forces from all countries to defeat it before it gets any further. To continue ignoring the threat will only result in chaos, death and eventual subjugation of the people, for it is clear that groups such as I.S., Boko Haram etc. will not be satisfied once they achieve their goal of forming a Muslim state under their control, but will wish to spread outwards.

Rest assured that all countries ignore this threat at their peril, for it will not stop until all terrorist groups have been annihilated.

Syria’s Children To Become The Lost Generation?

Posted in America, Arab, Britain, Children, Human Rights, Insurgents, News, Security Council, Terrorism, United Nations with tags , , , , on 06/01/2015 by floroy1942

Reports out today suggest that children living in areas controlled by the Islamic State (IS) in Eastern Syria, could become the lost generation due to restrictions placed upon them by the militants. Last December I.S. closed all the schools until a new curriculum is released.

Damaged School

Damaged School

In all, an estimated 670,000 school children have been banned from attending until the curriculum has been sanitized to conform one hundred percent with Islamic Law by the terrorists (or at least their version of it).

The I.S. has also informed all teachers that they must undergo retraining before being able to teach again. Obviously with the intention that they teach what the I.S. wants and nothing else. From this we can assume that children attending schools in these areas will be groomed to believe in the I.S. version of Islam and follow their ideals.

Last year in Syria alone, an estimated 160 children died, and 343 injured in direct attacks on schools, or when their school was caught in the middle of the fighting.

Between 2.1 and 2.4 million children in Syria are unable to attend school regularly  because of the fighting, which means the country could end up with a lost generation who must survive without a full education.

This is without doubt a tragic situation, for a good education is everybody’s right. It is however noteworthy that in the Islamic religion girls are not educated to the same level as boys on religious grounds.

UNICEF’s Syrian representative Christophe Boulierac, said in statement: “In December there was a decree of the Islamic State ordering the stoppage of education in areas under its control.” He added, “Attacks on schools, teachers and students are further horrific reminders of the terrible price Syria’s children are paying in a crisis approaching its fifth year.”

This brings me to the question, why has this war been going on for five long years? With all this upheaval in the Middle East why hasn’t the United Nations stepped in and put an end to the war and forced the perpetrators to sit around the negotiating table? Just like the current trouble in Ukraine they are sitting on the sidelines doing nothing when they have the power to stop it.

Someone needs to stand before the entire U.N. Council, wake them out of their slumber and give them a good talking to! The U.N. was formed with the idea of mediating between countries to prevent the outbreak of wars, but instead they sit on their backsides and watch from the sidelines. I know many of my regular readers have heard all this from me in the past, but I would love to give them all a good talking to.

What has been happening in the Middle East is shocking beyond compare, especially when it has cost so many innocent lives and now is ruining the lives of future generations.

Christian Children Slaughtered By I.S.

Christian Children Slaughtered By I.S.

It is not difficult to imagine what the ‘new’ curriculum will contain. For sure it will extol the I.S. propaganda and turn children into radicals that believe in the I.S. version of Islam. This as we now know is based on conformity with what they say, and will include total submissiveness and the worst forms of brutality for non-compliance.

I.S. have already shown the world what they will do to those who stand up against them and their beliefs with their much publicised be-headings and torture.

I.S. Leader Is Already Urging His Followers To Attack Saudi Arabia.

Recent news has shown that they are already starting to push their ideology into neighbouring countries, and chief among them is Saudi Arabia. As usual it starts in a small way, but given time can blossom into a major problem. If nothing is done to stop them the whole Middle East could become a war zone.

This is one of the reasons why all countries must come together and stop them, militarily if necessary. If we do not, then what is happening now will be the tip of the iceberg.

The European Court Is A Laughing Stock!

Posted in America, Britain, European Union, Insurgents, Israel, News, Palestine, Terrorism, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 18/12/2014 by floroy1942

European CourtsDo you  consider Hamas as not being a terrorist organization? Although from time to time some crazy things have come out of the European High Court, I would never have believed that people from the highest law court in Europe could be so blind, and so stupid! I refer to their decision that the Palestinian group Hamas should no longer be referred to as a terrorist organization.

Typical Scene In Gaza

Typical Scene In Gaza

Hamas has been behind all the bloodshed in the fighting with Israel for decades, and is responsible for killing thousands of their own people because they cannot accept the existence of Israel as a state. The Hamas leaders have stated openly many times that they will never accept the state of Israel, and will continue to fight until it is destroyed.

Recently, for the third successive time over the last ten years, they began firing rockets onto Israeli towns and villages without warning, and naturally Israel responded.

Wouldn’t you want to retaliate if someone started raining rockets down on you and yours? Only a fool would stand idly by and do nothing.

Preparing To Fire A Rocket - Note The Location

Preparing To Fire A Rocket – Note The Location

As we now all know, Hamas fired their rockets from the middle of housing areas and next to schools and hospitals, with the express purpose of causing as many civilian casualties as possible. Naturally they sought to blame the Israeli Army and Air Force for all the deaths, but anyone with an ounce of intelligence saw through the lies. I know I certainly did, and reported on it.

Deluded People Who Could Not See Beyond The Biased Headlines

Deluded People Who Could Not See Beyond The Biased Headlines

It is a sad fact that very many people blamed the Israeli’s for the deaths which led to mass demonstrations across the western world. A sad indication of how short-sighted many people are these days. It also shows the power of the biased Press, for nothing sells newspapers quicker than scenes of dead and dying people, especially women and children!

This Says It All!

This Says It All!

It does not matter who you personally hold responsible, the fact is the whole episode was started by Hamas who, unprovoked, fired the first rockets into Israel, and not for the first time. It only ended, as usual, when they ran out of rockets.

To any intelligent person, there can be no-one else to blame for all the deaths in Palestine but Hamas. After each spat with Israel over the years Gaza has received billions of dollars in Aid to rebuild their infrastructure and houses, but the funny thing is (or maybe not) all the Hamas leadership have become billionaires and millionaires! Now how do you explain that?

Hamas Tunnel

During this last spat dozens of highly sophisticated concrete-lined Hamas tunnels were found which American experts estimated cost €1 million each to build. Now I wonder where all the money for them came from? From the facts, it would seem that of the billions in aid sent to Gaza over the past fifteen years or so, not much of it went to the people.

In the 2006 legislative elections, the Palestinian people overwhelmingly voted Hamas into power to counter rampant financial corruption in the Gaza Authority.

Hamas Get Rich While Thier People Suffer!

Hamas Get Rich While Their People Suffer!

Since that time, it may interest you to know that Hamas now has around 1,700 millionaires and several billionaires? I am sure many will perhaps dispute this, but Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction went on the offensive recently claiming that Hamas in Gaza is corrupt and “doesn’t represent the Palestinian people.” The Fatah spokesman claimed that while Gaza is one of the poorest places in the world, there are 1,700 millionaires among Hamas members.

Hamas Leader - The Richest Man In Gaza At The Expense Of Its People

Hamas Leader – The Richest Man In Gaza At The Expense Of Its People

The leader of Hamas, Khaled Mashal is worth an estimated €2.6 billion all of which has come from exorbitantly taxing the Palestinians, Aid money, and the one essential element – the continued blockade of Gaza by the Israeli’s. All goods smuggled into Gaza through the myriad of tunnels in Rafah are heavily taxed by Hamas.

The leaders of Hamas live in absolute luxury, have private jets and stay at the finest hotels when they go anywhere, which is often. So it is clear to see that in this case at least, being a terrorist has paid off handsomely.

While the leaders of Hamas have been getting rich the people of Gaza have been killed, had their houses and possessions blown away, and live in abject poverty. All this to make a terrorist organization rich. Not much justice there.

The Hamas Creed. See What I mean!

The Hamas Creed.
See What I mean!

And now after years of orchestrating a reign of terror in Gaza, the European Court wants them taken off the terror list! I fail to see what such a decision will achieve, other than to legitimize their terrorist activities and give them free reign to continue their drastic actions and cause even more suffering for the Gaza people.

It is true that many, and in particular European politicians, were dismayed by the ruling, for it is clear that Hamas is a terrorist organization and must be removed before any form of peace can be achieved within the Middle East. Their staunch refusal to accept the existence of Israel as a state is the one major stumbling block to achieving this.
