    European taxpayers are supporting a massive fraud. The European Union (EU) has become embroiled in a financial scandal of massive proportions in relation to the financial assistance given by it to the Palestinian Authority (PA) since 1994. This appears very clear from the comprehensive European Court of Auditors Report dated 22 October 2013 which was only made public this week. The Report reveals the following: .....
  • European Council Passes "Anti-Ritual Circumcision" Resolution

    10/02/2013 12:17:31 PM PDT · by Former Fetus · 17 replies
    A resolution that calls male ritual circumcision a "violation of the physical integrity of children" was passed overwhelmingly by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. The council, a pan-European intergovernmental organization, debated and passed the resolution on Tuesday based on a report by the Committee on Social Affairs, Health and Sustainable Development led by German rapporteur Marlene Rupperecht. The resolution passed by a vote of 78 in favor and 13 against, with 15 abstentions. The resolution calls on states to "clearly define the medical, sanitary and other conditions to be ensured for practices such as the non-medically justified...

    In an interview to be published in this week’s issue of Spiegel, American intelligence agency whistleblower Edward Snowden criticizes the methods and power of the National Security Agency. Snowden said the NSA people are “in bed together with the Germans.” He added that the NSA's “Foreign Affairs Directorate” is responsible for partnerships with other countries. The partnerships are organized in a way that authorities in other countries can “insulate their political leaders from the backlash” in the event it becomes public “how grievously they're violating global privacy.” … Spiegel reporting also indicates that cooperation between the NSA and Germany’s foreign...

    On Thursday, the ruling parties in Germany’s parliament blocked a measure to resolve the amount German pension funds must pay to former laborers in Nazi-era ghettos. Israeli officials are incensed and have promised to increase pressure. … The debate stems from a 2002 Bundestag law that promised to quickly make it possible for Jews who once worked in ghettos to draw a modest pension from Germany. Initially, state pension fund providers rejected roughly 90 percent of applications for this pension. Officials often disputed that the former ghetto residents had worked “voluntarily” and received some form of “remuneration” for their work,...

    The European Commission has started preparing the ground for legislation that would prevent member states from undertaking major tax, labor or financial reforms without running it by the commission and other governments first. In an ideas paper published Wednesday (20 March), the commission said this ex-ante coordination should concern “major national economic reform plans and should take place at an early stage before the measures are adopted.” The suggested scope of covered policies would implicate virtually all national government legislation—including competitiveness and employment laws, reforms that cover product and services markets, as well as those affecting tax systems and network...

    In a wide-ranging interview with EurActiv.de, Romano Prodi, former European Commission President, says moves towards a two-speed European Union were now well underway. Regarding the UK's disengagement from Europe, his assessment is simple: Britain will lose influence and eventually face "grave difficulties". Prodi, who served as Commission president from 1999 to 2004, said the European Central Bank's intervention on sovereign bond markets as well as recent decisions on banking union had put the eurozone back into safe territory. "The danger of breakup is not on the table anymore," Prodi told EurActiv Germany in an interview. However, he appeared concerned about...

    The article, published in the Journal of Medical Ethics, says newborn babies are not “actual persons” and do not have a “moral right to life”. The academics also argue that parents should be able to have their baby killed if it turns out to be disabled when it is born. The journal’s editor, Prof Julian Savulescu, director of the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, said the article's authors had received death threats since publishing the article. He said those who made abusive and threatening posts about the study were “fanatics opposed to the very values of a liberal society”....

    The Coming European Superstate That Germany Plans To Cram Down The Throats Of The Rest Of EuropeNovember 20, 2011 A lot of people were puzzled about what German Chancellor Angela Merkel meant when she recently stated that the ultimate solution to the financial crisis in the EU would "mean more Europe, not less Europe". Well, now we are finding out.

    Algeria has awarded four German companies the largest contract ($10 billion) for arms and military equipment ever signed by Algeria with a Western country. Algeria has been buying armaments and military equipment almost exclusively from Russia or former Soviet bloc countries. Authorities in Algeria are willing to pay up to get either a recognition or a simple statement of support for their Western Sahara Separatist group, Polisario. During a visit to Berlin last December, Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, has managed to convince German Chancellor Angela Merkel to make a small gesture to the Polisario, when she said, in a joint...

    You — or your kids — will be assimilated: the "liberal" university prepares the totalitarian future.Much has been made of the “unholy alliance” between the imperial left and a triumphalist Islam in advancing the cause of the modern totalitarian project. The left wants to see a top-down socialist utopia supplant the international order as we know it and militant Islam is determined to impose a Shariate upon the world. Indeed, as Norwegian scholar Hege Storhaug documents in But the Greatest of These Is Freedom, there is a brisk migration “from left-wing totalitarianism to religio-political totalitarianism.” The totalitarian mind is identical...

    In all the excitement, it was easy to miss the fact that there were two very high level visitors to Iran late last week and then over the weekend: Turkish President Gul and German Foreign Minister Westerwelle. The sequence was not accidental. Gul went first, and stayed for four days. The Turks and Iranians are constructing a very complex network of deals and schemes, from coordinating action against Israel, to making the two currencies interchangeable, to making commerce virtually unregulated, to building and maintaining oil and gas pipelines, enabling Turkey to buy Iranian product at bargain prices, and granting exploration...

    When Americans see the bizarre responses of the mainstream media and the progressive politicians to tragedies such as the Tucson shootings — for instance, the proposal to ban rhetoric or symbols perceived to be violent — many wonder how the country has come to this strange place where elitists are moving to gain control at the expense of individual liberties. Perhaps one need not look past the Woodrow Wilson administration for the answer. Today’s politicians and progressives seem to have taken some notes right out of the works of Edward Bernays, President Wilson’s propaganda master. The author of books such...

    The rebellion against the 1930s fiscal and monetary policies of the Euro-complex is gathering pace. Il Sole has published a letter by 100 Italian economists warning that the austerity strategy imposed by Brussels/Frankfurt risks tipping Europe into a self-feeding downward spiral. Far from holding the eurozone together, it will cause weaker countries to be catapulted out of EMU. Others will leave in order to restore sovereign control over their central banks and unemployment policies. At worst it will blow the EU apart, leading to the very acrimony that the European Project was supposed to prevent. For readers of Italian, it’s...

    Turkey's growing hostility to Israel may have been partly caused by its effective rejection by the European Union, the US defence secretary says. Robert Gates said Turkey may have been "pushed by some in Europe" away from the EU and into closer partnerships with states like Iran. Turkey has been put on the path to EU membership, but countries like France and Germany are openly opposed. Turkey and Israel's once-close alliance has come under severe strain. Their relations were already deteriorating before Israeli troops stormed a ship carrying aid to Gaza last month, killing nine Turks. 'Matter of concern' Turkey's...

Naor Gilon, the Foreign Ministry’s deputy director-general for Western Europe, made his comments at a symposium in Jerusalem sponsored by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. Gilon’s words come just days after Hamas officials said they wanted direct contact with the US administration, and a couple of weeks after...

It must be able to manage crises independently. It must be able to respond quickly, flexibly and to take a united stand," he said. "We want strong European crisis management.

    Stories appearing on several Ukrainian Web sites claim Israel has brought around some 25,000 Ukrainian children into the country over the past two years in order to harvest their organs. The claim, which was made by a Ukrainian philosophy professor and author at a pseudo-academic conference in Kiev five days ago, is the latest expression of a wave of anti-Semitism in the country. It comes a few months after a Swedish tabloid ran an article alleging that Israel Defense Forces soldiers have killed Palestinian civilians for their organs.

The coffin and remains were handed over to Austrian authorities at the weekend, Austrian police say. Thieves stole the coffin in November 2008, after moving a slab of granite at the mausoleum in southern Austria where the industrialist was buried. Flick inherited German factories that employed slave labour during World War II. He died in 2006 at the age of 79. In December 2008 his widow Ingrid offered a 100,000-euro (Ł91,000) reward in an effort to recover the body. No ransom demand was...

    The paper is aged and fragile, the typewritten letters slowly fading. But US Military Intelligence report EW-Pa 128 is as chilling now as the day it was written in November 1944. The document, also known as the Red House Report, is a detailed account of a secret meeting at the Maison Rouge Hotel in Strasbourg on August 10, 1944. There, Nazi officials ordered an elite group of German industrialists to plan for Germany's post-war recovery, prepare for the Nazis' return to power and work for a 'strong German empire'. In other words: the Fourth Reich. The three-page, closely typed report,...

The historic move for troops in either Alsace or Lorraine is part of a 20-year joint military project to encourage reconciliation between the two countries. Despite its symbolic significance for a country occupied by Nazi forces, the decision has so far prompted little more than curious and insouciant reaction from the French public.

    Most Americans have little to no understanding of the European Union. Founded under tripartite coal and steel trade negotiations, many viewed the EU as a free trade agreement that promotes liberty. Others see it as the European version of the United States. This fundamental misunderstanding has led American Presidents from George HW Bush to his son, to all of the current major candidates for president to support the EU, and in the case of President George W Bush to push for its expansion into Turkey. Whatever the EU began as, it most certainly is not a free market anything. The...

"We need to get closer to a common army for Europe," she said. Speaking about her future visions for the EU, Merkel also underlined her dream of a common EU constitution, which she will try to revive Sunday in a 'Berlin Declaration,' a two-page document that will...

    A German appeals court has not only affirmed a lower court's decision that ripped a 15-year-old homeschooler from her family and subjected her to a forced stay in a psychiatric hospital because she is homeschooled, but also ordered her parents to be given psychiatric evaluations, an international rights organization says. Joel Thornton, president of the International Human Rights Group told WND that fears the state will use those court-approved tests to destroy the family of Melissa Busekros are very valid. The family's five other children also are endangered now because of potential court rulings that could be based on any...

    Polish Fringe Magazine Pictures Merkel As Hitler March 2nd 2007 by Playfuls Team German Chancellor Angela Merkel is pictured as Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler with the caption "EU Fascism on the Offensive" on the cover of the latest edition of the Polish political fringe magazine Czas.

The UPR party has virtually no popular support in Poland and holds no parliamentary seats. The provocative...

They focused on strengthening judicial cooperation and ties between their various national intelligence, investigative, justice, and police agencies. A special coordinator, Gijs de Vries, was appointed to oversee this task. But, while some significant improvements have been made, its still pretty much old hat when in come to dealing with terrorism and cross border criminal activities. Each country still does its own thing. And cross border judicial cooperation continues to be slow and burdensome. EU Justice Commissioner Franco Frattini, complained in...

    Today [May 9th, 2006] is Europe Day. On 9 May 1950, the French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman called upon France, Germany and other European countries to pool together their coal and steel production. Part of the original mystique of the movement for European unification can be found in the name of the Brussels building which for more than 50 years has housed the Council of Ministers of the organisations that were first known as the European Coal and Steel Community (ESCS), Euratom and the European Economic Community (EEC), and which later merged to become the European Communities (EC) and finally...
