    But not everyone in Spain is happy about their new socialist government’s eagerness to allow masses of Muslim welfare migrants into the country. They haven’t forgotten the disaster that Muslim rule in Spain for 700 years caused. And just as Libya’s assassinated leader, Muammar Gaddafi, predicted if he were to be ousted, Europe would turn black and Muslim within 50 years.

    GENEVA (Reuters) - Talks with the United States over how to reform the main U.N. rights body have failed to meet Washington’s demands, activists and diplomats say, suggesting that the Trump administration will quit the Geneva forum whose session opens on Monday. A U.S. source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters the withdrawal appeared to be “imminent” but had no details. Diplomatic sources said it was not a question of if but of when the United States retreats from the Human Rights Council, which is holding a three-week session through July 6. A separate U.S. official in Geneva had...
  • Merkel Abandons Migrant Quotas, Pushes for EU ‘Flexible Solidarity’ and Soros-Approved Africa Plan

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has largely abandoned support for the European Union’s migrant quota system, instead, pushing for what she has termed “flexible solidarity” and a “Marshall Plan” for Africa to prevent illegal migration. Merkel made her remarks on Wednesday at a meeting of the European People’s Party, a European Union parliamentary group of which Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CSU) is a member, Le Point reports. “If we fail to provide a common answer to questions of illegal migration, the foundations of the European Union will be called into question. Action is really needed here,” she said. Merkel appeared to...

    Archaeologists found a significant discovery at a Celtic sacrificial place near the village Slatina nad Bebravou. They discovered relief-decorated shoulder boards made from bronze that were part of a breastplate of a prominent Greek warrior. "It is the oldest original Greek art relic in the area of Slovakia," said deputy of director of Slovak Archaeological Institute in Nitra, Karol Pieta, as quoted by the SITA newswire. The relief was made in the Greek colony of Taranto in southern Italy in the middle of the fourth century BC. It came to Slovak territory about one hundred years later. "There is a...

    ... In Berlin, Macron’s proposals were met with a combination of skepticism and fear, especially among Merkel’s conservative base. Though no country has benefited more than Germany from the currency union, many Germans remain convinced that much of the rest of Europe — particularly the Mediterranean states — is trying to pick its pockets. The Greek bailouts, which cost Germany little in the grander scheme of things, only hardened that impression. In fact, for much of the German establishment, Macron’s ideas are nothing less than an open invitation to raid Berlin’s treasury.
  • Corbyn says he wants to hand the 'stolen' Elgin Marbles back to Greece if he becomes Prime Minister

    Jeremy Corbyn has insisted he wants to hand the Elgin Marbles back to Greece if he becomes Prime Minister. The Labour leader made clear he viewed the ancient statues as 'stolen' and they should be returned. Many Parthenon sculptures have been housed in the British Museum since 1816 after they were bought by the government from Lord Elgin. Greece has long campaigned for their repatriation, but supporters insist they were purchased legitimately and have been painstakingly preserved in the UK.

    The reasons for the end of the Mycenaean culture have been hotly debated among scholars. At present, there is no satisfactory explanation for the collapse of the Mycenaean palace systems. The two most common theories are population movement and internal conflict. The first attributes the destruction of Mycenaean sites to invaders. The hypothesis of a Dorian invasion, known as such in Ancient Greek tradition, that led to the end of Mycenaean Greece, is supported by sporadic archaeological evidence such as new types of burials, in particular cist graves, and the use of a new dialect of Greek, the Doric one....

    TurkeyÂ’s Supreme Electoral Council (YSK) has ruled that a Kurdish candidate for the Turkish presidency cannot phone in to a talk programme from jail, opposition newspaper Cumhuriyet said . Selahattin DemirtaÅŸ was planning to use his weekly right to a 10-minute phone call to call in to Fox TV and take part in its election programme Leaders on Fox. However, his request was rejected on the basis that this was an internal Justice Ministry decision the YSK could not interfere with, even if it might affect the ongoing election. DemirtaÅŸ has been in pretrial detention since November 2016, and if...

    Israel and Iran engaged over the weekend in indirect negotiations in Jordan regarding fighting in southwestern Syria, according to a Saudi-owned website. According to the Elaph website, the Iranians pledged not to participate in expected battles in southwestern Syria between President Bashar Assad’s forces and rebel groups, and Israel has made it clear that it will not intervene in the battles in the tri-border area, as long as Hezbollah and the Iranian-backed Shi’ite militias are not involved. The unconfirmed report said the negotiations were conducted last weekend between Iran’s ambassador to Jordan, who was in one hotel room in Amman...

    ANKARA, May 27. /TASS/. Turkey is looking at buying Russian Su-57 fighter jets in case the United States refuses to sell its F-35 warplanes, Turkey’s YeniSafak reported on Sunday. Nevertheless, according to the newspaper, Ankara is not planning to abandon its right to US fighter jets, with deliveries expected to begin in June. Turkey has launched a discussion about a possible replacement to US planes and Russian-made Su-57 jets are seen as a good alternative as they are nearly half-price as compared with US F-35 planes, YeniSafak said, not specifying however the level of discussion. As of now, Ankara has...

    Only in Turkey is the identity of a citizen a matter of national security. That’s why the population registry in Ankara was until now a closed book, its details a state secret. Mustafa Kemal Ataturk’s definition of “Turkishness” was “anyone who is attached to the Turkish state as a citizen”. Turks came from a clear ethnic identity, untainted by racial minorities or doubtful lineage. That’s one reason why the Nazis lavished praise on Ataturk’s republic, their newspapers mourning his death in black-bordered front pages. After all, as Hitler was to ask in several newspaper interviews – and to his generals...

    THE Loch Ness Monster may have been found – but a little far from home.Footage captured the moment what appears to be a huge sea creature in the Great Prespa Lake – a massive body of water shared by Albania, Greece and Macedonia. The viral video shows “Nessie” poking its long neck out of the water before ducking back down. Many viewers have been wondering whether the mythical beast has gone on holiday away from its usual home in Scotland’s Loch Ness. And it could even be a trip it’s made before as a similar giant sea creature was spotted...

    Accused of being “infidels,” a group of Kurdish asylum-seekers say they were attacked at a refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesbos on Friday. Local reports on Saturday said six persons were wounded in the clashes. One Syrian Kurdish refugee said four Kurds had been killed when they were set upon due to “sectarian and ethnic hatred against Kurds.” Reports corrected the numbers on Sunday to indicate ten had been injured and none killed.

    Independent MEP Janice Atkinson has become the latest high-profile public figure to speak out about “The Great Replacement” which argues that native Brits and Europeans are being systematically replaced through mass, uncontrolled immigration.Writing in the Voice of Europe following an exclusive by Shy Society over an English Heritage training programme excluding white people, the South East England MEP says that when she first read about the theory she thought it was an “over reaction”. But the former UKIP politician has recently changed her mind and is now “absolutely convinced” that The Great Replacement is a concerted effort by globalist elites...

    In a sometimes-surreal interview with Greek television news channel Antenna, Antonios Pagourtzis, the father of the accused school shooter in Texas said that his son wasn’t a criminal, but a victim. His comment came during a telephone interview that the network broadcast on their newscast in Greece. Pagourtzis denied any responsibility in his son’s murderous rampage that killed ten people in a Texas school, criticizing people who said that there was blood on his guns. “The guns were clean,” Pagourtzis said in the interview, adding that he as hurt that a lot of the negative press about him was coming...

    Nicholas Blackwell and his father went to a hardware store about three years ago seeking parts for a mystery device from the past. They carefully selected wood and other materials to assemble a stonecutting pendulum that, if Blackwell is right, resembles contraptions once used to build majestic Bronze Age palaces. With no ancient drawings or blueprints of the tool for guidance, the two men relied on their combined knowledge of archaeology and construction. Blackwell, an archaeologist at Indiana University Bloomington, had the necessary Bronze Age background. His father, George, brought construction cred to the project... No one alive today has...
