  • Far-right AfD member converted to Islam in protest at church's gay marriage stance [Germany]

    A member of Germany’s far-right and anti-Muslim Alternative for Germany party (AfD) who recently converted to Islam has said he did so in protest at what he sees as the “moral decline” of the Protestant church. Arthur Wagner, 48, until recently a leading party member in the state of Brandenburg, told the Bild newspaper on Wednesday that his decision was in part sparked by the church’s acceptance of same-sex marriage and the presence of priests at gay pride marches. “One of the reasons (for the conversion) is tied to changes that have taken place in the church, which no longer...

    Saeb Erekat, secretary of the PLO Executive Committee, on Tuesday announced that the "State of Palestine" plans to appeal to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague against U.S. President Donald Trump's peace plan and his recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. In an interview with a Turkish news agency, Erekat said that U.S. policy is contrary to the decisions of international institutions, which regard East Jerusalem as territory that is "occupied" by Israel. Erekat further stated that the Palestinian Authority (PA) intends to turn once again to the UN Security Council with a request that it...

    Police say two truck trailers loaded with 44 tons (48.5 U.S. tons) of chocolate were stolen in southern Germany and there’s no sign of the sticky-fingered perpetrators. Police said Monday the trailers packed with 400,000 euros ($496,100) worth of chocolate were stolen from an industrial park in Freiburg on Friday night. One was found Saturday hauled by a Polish truck that had stopped at a rest area near the German-French border. The driver fled on foot and

    Will no-one save Gustav Backmann’s unique Arctic fish freezer designed to maintain a temperature of between -12C to -14C all year round?The tunnels go deep inside the permafrost in Novy Port, a subterranean labyrinth that is a relic of a former age and a triumph of supreme German engineering in the most inhospitable conditions. In area, at 7,000 square metres, these tunnels and chambers cover a larger space than Donald Trump’s White House in Washington DC. They are all underground, hewn out of the solid frozen ground by labourers, like Backmann, forcibly exiled here deep in the Soviet era. Built...

    Despite the Federal German Government’s statements on the use of Leopard II tanks in the attacks against Afrin, it has come to light that Ankara had sent a notice to Berlin last week. The Berlin administration is under pressure due to the Turkish army using German-made Leopard II tanks in the attacks and massacres against Afrin. Despite photographs of German Leopard tanks published in the press, the Federal German Government had issued a statement saying they “didn’t have information”. Defense Ministry Spokesperson Holger Neumann spoke in a press conference last week in Berlin and said, “Outside of the images on...

    World War II guns fire a salute during celebrations of the 74th anniversary of the battle that lifted the Siege of Leningrad in St. Petersburg, on Saturday. The city of St. Petersburg, known as Leningrad until the name was changed back in 1991, is celebrating the Soviets’ victory over the devastating Nazi siege. The city was besieged by German, Finnish and Spanish troops on September 8, 1941, when the Nazis launched Operation Barbarossa against the Soviet Union. The blockade was broken on January 18, 1943 but finally lifted on January 27, 1944. Over 1 million people died mainly from starvation...

    The number of trials involving terror-linked radical Islamic extremists is on the rise in Germany as the German federal prosecutor announced that his office opened 1,031 investigations into Islamic extremists in 2017. The German federal prosecutor, based in the city of Karlsruhe, said of the over 1,000 preliminary investigations only two have been brought to trial so far. The prosecutor also noted that the suspects in the investigations were overwhelmingly men with only 24 of the suspects being female, Die Welt reports. Last year, Attorney General Peter Frank announced that he would be looking more deeply into investigating Islamic extremists...

    It’s panic time as the liberals struggle to halt the winning streak of President Donald Trump (Yeah, President Donald Trump – get used to it!). It’s tacky, petty, and pathetic, and exactly what we’ve come to expect from the kind of people who shamelessly backed Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit while screeching “#MeToo!” Hypocrisy, thy name is “Liberal.” Remember back in the day when Democrats were supposed to be the friends and protectors of oppressed minorities who stood up for their rights out of basic decency and courage? Me neither – the Party of Bull Connor was never really concerned about...

    Germany has introduced pants with safety alarms to ward off Muslim migrant sex attacks, as Europe continues to descend into lawlessness and dhimmitude. UK police once advised potential victims not to harm their attackers, issuing a statement: “You must not get a product which is made or adapted to cause a person injury. Possession of such a product in public (and in private in specific circumstances) is against the law.” In Germany, reports emerged that “safe shorts,” made to prevent pervasive sex attacks by migrants, were sold out; and as Sweden struggles to cope with its migrant crisis, incidents of...

    It's said that time heals all wounds. But not for people afflicted with dementia like Gerda Noack. The 93-year-old German woman's memory is fading, as is her eyesight. The losses scare her. On a recent morning at the AlexA Residence for Senior Citizens in Dresden, where she lives, Noack sounded anxious as she asked, over and over: "Where am I supposed to go?" Director Gunter Wolfram gently took her arm and suggested they visit a government-run store from the former communist East Germany called Intershop. The once popular chain no longer exists — but a mockup of the store is...

    German children’s television channel Kika posted a short video on its website, using teens from migrant backgrounds, to show its underage viewers how to remove a woman’s bra. The online post, entitled “Open Bra”, has been taken down by the children’s television channel after they received a backlash from many, including Germany’s largest women’s rights organisation Terre des Femmes, Berliner Zeitung reports. Head of Terre des Femmes Inge Bell said she was horrified by the video which lasted just over one and a half minutes. “This is a completely wrong signal to the Kika target group of three- to 13-year-old...
  • Editorial: In Syria, a NATO nation changes teams

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says his troops recently advanced on the Kurdish stronghold of Afrin only after Ankara got a green light from Russia. Moscow has denied giving such assent, but Erdogan on Monday said that indeed, Turkey had an agreement with Russia to launch the offensive. It’s a page straight from the Kremlin playbook. Moscow is capitalizing on the discord between the U.S. and Turkey over the Kurds to cozy up to a member of NATO, an alliance the Kremlin still regards as an existential threat on its western border. Aggravate the rift between Washington and Ankara, Moscow...

    German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel was protested by a large group in the audience in an event he attended in Hamburg’s historic theater because of the German tanks used in the Afrin attacks. A large group in the audience started chanting slogans against the German made Leopard II tanks being used in the attacks and massacres against Afrin as they held up banners when Gabriel started his speech. Gabriel and the protesters had a short argument. A banner that read “Turkey bombs Germany profits” was put up on one side of the hall and another that read “Solidarity with Kurdistan”...
  • German children’s channel teaches migrants how to open a bra

    For the second time in a few weeks the German children’s channel KIKA has shocked the public. After encouraging a child marriage between an adult migrant and a naďve German teen girl, this time on their programme was a segment about opening a bra. A strange subject for a children’s channel that makes content for kids between 3 and 13 years old. But it becomes even more peculiar when the three boys opening the bra on TV are migrants. This could have something to do with KIKA’s “education mission”, but after several migrants sex attacks and a horrible rape-murder, probably...

    arlier this month at a German airport, what began as a disagreement with airport security ended with an American woman facing a charge of defamation for allegedly calling a federal officer a “Nazi.” The woman, a distinguished professor at Georgetown University named C. Christine Fair, claims authorities mistreated her at Frankfurt International Airport — they patted down her breasts, called her a hippie and threatened to arrest her if she lodged a formal complaint against the officers — before fabricating the allegation against her. “This was the most extraordinary case of police corruption I’ve personally witnessed,” she told The Star.

    Netanyahu in Davos: Not only does Iran spread terror all over the world, it openly says it will use its weapons to destroy Israel. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke on Thursday evening at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Netanyahu criticized the nuclear deal with Iran and said, "I think that the current agreement is so flawed that it promises that Iran will have everything necessary to create nuclear weapons, including the enrichment of fissile material on a huge scale.” “What they can do today, at best, is enrich uranium for one bomb. Under the current agreement, they will...

    Germany's new law requires social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, to censor their users on behalf of the government. Social media companies are obliged to delete or block any online "criminal offenses" within 24 hours of receipt of a user complaint -- regardless of whether the content is accurate or not. Social media platforms now have the power to shape the form of current political and cultural discourse by deciding who will speak and what they will say. Notice the ease with which the police chief mentioned that he had filed charges to silence a leading political...
  • 'Great concern': Germany halts weapons deals with Turkey over Syria offensive

    01/25/2018 2:05:52 PM PST · by Texas Fossil · 2 replies
    Germany hardened its stance Thursday against Turkey over its military offensive against a Kurdish militia in Syria, which threatened to end a thaw in frosty relations between the NATO partners. Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel voiced "great concern" about Turkey's cross-border military incursion, called for NATO to discuss the situation and said Berlin would put on ice any weapons deals. Most painfully for Turkey, he postponed for at least several months a request to upgrade German-made Leopard tanks which Ankara has deployed in its operation against the Syrian-Kurdish militia YPG.Gabriel said Berlin and Paris were committed "to stopping a further escalation,...
