    In the latest incident of anti-gun hysteria to erupt in a school setting, officials overseeing a school district in Alabama have expelled a 16-year-old girl for an entire year because she had a water gun at school. Prior to her yearlong expulsion, the student, Sara Allena "Laney" Nichols, attended Prattville High School Prattville, a town of 35,229 just northwest of Montgomery. [Snip] Nichols and her mother, Tara Herring, say the teen girl did not bring the water gun to school. Instead, the mother and daughter claim, a male classmate gave Nichols the water gun to Nichols "as a joke."...

    A total of 330 academics were expelled with a new state of emergency decree published in the Official Gazette late on Feb. 7, drawing criticism from the opposition and the scholars themselves about the effect the moves will have on education. The academics were among 4,464 public workers who were expelled as part of the decree. The expulsion of the academics also drew reactions from political parties, with main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) lawmakers Sezgin Tanrıkulu and Aykut Erdoğdu criticizing the decision. “Dear academics, all those who faced injustices: These days will pass and the justice will be served,”...

    Commemorating 850,000 Jews Expelled from Arab Countries, Nov. 30Jewish Women of the Orient 100-150 Years AgoLast year, Israel's Knesset designated November 30 as the memorial day to commemorate the expulsion of Jews from Arab countries and Iran. Flourishing ancient communities were forced to flee anti-Semitic persecution, deadly pogroms, and confiscation of property. An estimated 850,000 fled, most of them to Israel. Historic photographs of the Jewish communities and individuals serve to remind us of the rich heritage they left behind.

    Instead of pressing charges with the children, the concerned mother calling 911 should have got slapped with a false 911 call. (Technically she should have called the police line for non emergencies.) What is the world coming to.... that kids can no longer be seen playing with plastic guns? I grew up doing that with my cousins since I was 4. It would be nice of the local governments steps in and seriously scolds the education administration. - Vae Victis

The committees recommendation will go to the full Assembly for a vote as early as Wednesday. A two-thirds majority is needed to expel a member.

    The Jews will soon be expelled from Palestine that same way they were kicked out by France, Britain, Belgium, Russia and Germany, Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar said over the weekend. The only nation that received the Jews after they were expelled was the Islamic nation, which protected them and looked after them, Zahar said in a speech in Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip over the weekend. (Snip) Zahar claimed that Jews were expelled in the past because they betrayed, stole and corrupted these countries.

    The United Nations says it has expelled a "large number" of members of a Jewish student group from a global racism conference after some of them disrupted a speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Spokeswoman Marie Heuze says the UN acted in response to Monday's disturbance by rainbow-wigged protesters, who shouted insults and threw small red clowns' noses at Ahmadinejad. Members of the European Union of Jewish Students also attempted to block the Iranian leader's appearance at a news conference. Heuze said Tuesday the students "have no chance of returning."

    Darwinism as Religion in a Holy War Feb 19, 2009 It might be expected that media attention on Darwin would be exceptionally high this month because of his bicentennial, but some of it seems downright religious. The adulation he has been receiving is almost embarrassing sometimes. It is only exceeded by the righteous indignation frequently expressed against intelligent design. In any other context, the fighting words of the Darwinians would be described as hate speech. Here are some recent examples: 1. Shrine to Darwin:...

    All across the country, archeologists, paleontologists and biologists are taking part in what is perhaps the greatest example of political correctness in history their adherence to Darwinism and their attempts to ostracize any scientist who does not agree with them. In doing so, they are not only ignoring the vast buildup of recent scientific discoveries that seriously undermines the basics of Darwinism, but they are also participating, due to politically correctness, in a belief system that indirectly resulted in the deaths of millions of people those slaughtered by the Stalins, the Hitlers, the Maos, the Pol Pots and...

    As 2008 drew to a close, the good news for the producers of Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed was that their creationist propaganda movie was getting a bit of press again. The bad news is that it was in the lists of the worst movies of 2008. The Onion's A.V. Club (December 16, 2008), was quickest out of the gate, commenting, "There are terrible movies, and then there are terrible movies that cause harm to society by feeding into its ignorance. Nathan Frankowski's odious anti-evolution documentary belongs in the latter category. ... Few moments in cinema in 2008 were as shameless...

    This week, in Britain, we have had the highest profile proof that even a hint that your views on evolution might differ from those of the scientific establishment is enough to force you out. Prof. Michael Reiss, an evolutionist and the Royal Societys director of education, resigned under pressure (given the push) within a couple of days of merely suggesting that creationism and ID could be discussed in classroomseven if it was in order to explain why they were, in his view, wrong.2 Immediately, atheistic scientists called for him to be ousted, claiming he was wanting creationism to be taught...
