    Powerline ^ | 12/25/2019 | John Hinderaker
    snip The Battle of the Bulge has a special resonance for me, because my father almost died in it. He was a college student when World War II broke out. He graduated, then enlisted in the Army. He was sent to one of the big Army bases in the South for basic training. In those days, they gave every enlistee an IQ test; maybe they still do. My father’s performance on the test was good enough that he was pulled out of the ranks and sent to graduate school to become an engineer. (Drill Sergeant, with privates lined up: “Hinderaker!...

    Several Palestinian clans have rejected The Convention of the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women, a move widely seen as a revolt against the PA. Critics of the treaty claim that it goes against Arab and Islamic norms and teachings. “This treaty is unacceptable to Arabs and Muslims,” remarked Palestinian activist Abu Ghassan Shaheen. “It goes against our religion and traditions.” On Saturday, leaders of large Palestinian clans in Hebron called on the PA to withdraw from the treaty. They also called for banning feminist groups from entering Palestinian schools. The clan leaders expressed opposition to the PA’s...

    Dame Mary Barraco now and then. She was knighted "Dame" by the King of Belgium in 2004 for her work as a freedom fighter. (Courtesy of the Holocaust Commission of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater) Mary Sigillo Barraco never forgot what happened to her inside a Gestapo torture cell. She couldn’t forget her beatings if she tried, for she bore the mental and physical scars for the rest of her life. She’d landed there at just 19 after fighting the Nazi regime every way she could: flirting with guards to rescue prisoners of war, working on an underground...
  • Trump’s Openness Is Forcing A Stronger NATO And Europe

    12/03/2019 1:50:09 PM PST · by Liberty7732 · 9 replies
    The American people and the world are witnessing a revolution of openness brought on by none other than the frank, brusk, always to the point methods of President Trump. This was on full display this week as Trump held public press conferences with world leaders during the NATO meeting in London, and repeatedly had shockingly open and honest discussions — the things that have always been kept behind closed doors in the past, and then reported via leaks through a partisan media. Trump’s method forces difficult issues out into the light without the bias filter. With French President Emmanuel Macron,...

    Arutz Sheva spoke with Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt, President of the Conference of European Rabbis (CER), at a gathering of its Standing Committee in Geneva, Switzerland. How more challenging and scary has being a Jew in Europe become? "It's very challenging, as an individual and as a community." You're referring to fears of anti-Semitism? "Yes. We witnessed an attack on Yom Kippur in eastern Germany, not ISIS - Neo-Nazis. In the last years, no Jews were killed by neo-Nazis in Europe. It's a whole new phenomenon." "We have problems today from the left and the right and the center. This is...

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | November 30, 2019 | The Washington Post
    BRUSSELS — NATO nations are increasing spending on defense, with nine of the alliance’s 29 members now meeting guidelines, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Friday, ahead of a summit next week where President Donald Trump is expected to urge leaders yet again to increase military expenditures. The top-tier spending club — with at least 2% of annual gross domestic allocated for defense — expanded by one country and now includes Bulgaria, according to figures released by the military alliance. EU countries and Canada have collectively boosted their defense spending every year since 2015, motivated first by Russia’s conflict with...

    FULL TITLE: British vegan activist is covered in blood when 'Spanish farmers chase her down a motorway and shoot through her car window after she freed 14 of their rabbits' A British vegan activist was left covered in blood after farmers shot her through a car window for 'rescuing' 14 rabbits in Spain, she claims. Barcelona-based activist Mia, who goes by the Instagram name 'Mythical Mia', posted video on her social media showing blood on her face and legs. She told her more than 40,000 followers how she entered a rabbit farm in Gurb, Osona, and 'rescued' the animals. However...

    “Building peaceful societies” is a major goal of this year’s theme, and one which we wholeheartedly condone. This past summer we traveled all across the country as interns of the Ambassadors’ Club of Israel, and met a diverse group of people. In many of our conversations, we noticed one recurring issue when discussing any hope for peace between Israelis and Palestinians: youth education. As International Youth Day is being celebrated today with “Transforming Education” as its theme, and a new school year is rapidly approaching, we find it appropriate to call for a reform of the Palestinian educational system. “Building...

    Belgian teenage volunteers forced to flee Morocco after teacher threatens to cut off their heads for wearing shorts AUGUST 10, 2019 BY BARENAKEDISLAM A group Belgian teenage girls are returning home from volunteer work for a charity in Morocco after a local school teacher allegedly threatened to behead them, for wearing shorts. Images of the girls at a construction site in Morocco appeared on social media and prompted the beheading threat and criticism from a Moroccan politician. What kind of parents would allow their teenage daughters to do volunteer work in a dangerous Muslim country? The incident comes less than...

    Last month, when Trump dispatched the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group to the Persian Gulf region, it was reportedly the Israeli Mossad that tipped off the U.S. “on an Iranian plan to attack either a US or a US-allied target.”If so, the warning has already been borne out as just a week later Iran—trying to bully and threaten its way out of the Trump administration’s economic chokehold—attacked Norwegian, Emirati, and Saudi oil tankers, and last week attacked a Japanese and a Norwegian oil tanker.It’s not the first time Israeli intelligence has warned of impending attacks by Iran or...

But after a series of incidents, the liberal family has decided they no longer want the migrants there, according to Sudinfo.

    [Catholic Caucus] Belgian bishops direct priests to accompany to the end those who choose euthanasia On the one hand, the bishops of Belgium are reminding their flock and pastors that a dying person, who is fragile for that very reason, needs the proximity as well as the material, psychological and spiritual aid of family, friends, neighbors and pastoral workers, from priests to parish volunteers. On the other, they aim to broadcast a message of “unconditional love” that leads them to ask pastors to remain “close” to the dying person, even when euthanasia has been asked for and access to...

    EurekAlert! ^ | Wednesday, June 26, 2019 | Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology
    Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, have retrieved nuclear genome sequences from the femur of a male Neandertal discovered in 1937 in Hohlenstein-Stadel Cave, Germany, and from the maxillary bone of a Neandertal girl found in 1993 in Scladina Cave, Belgium. Both Neandertals lived around 120,000 years ago, and therefore predate most of the Neandertals whose genomes have been sequenced to date. By examining the nuclear genomes of these two individuals, the researchers could show that these early Neandertals in Western Europe were more closely related to the last Neandertals who lived in the...

Founded in 1954, ASCO has four manufacturing plants in Belgium, the US, Canada and Germany, and it employs 1,500 people. The company’s products are used by most aircraft manufacturers, including Airbus, Boeing and Lockheed Martin. ASCO was taken over last year by US-based Spirit AeroSystems. According to media reports, ASCO’s machines were infected with an unidentified piece of ransomware on Friday and the company has been having trouble restoring operations. The incident has reportedly disrupted the company’s ability to supply products to...
