    Christian camps being offered as shelter for asylum seekers are told by the authorities to remove all Christian symbols. Due to the large influx of asylum seekers to Norway, UDI (Immigration authorities) has found it necessary to lodge asylum seekers in more places than ordinary reception centres. The Norwegian Missionary Society (NMS), operates several Christian camp sites, which they offer to rent to UDI. UDI says yes please, but on one condition. All Christian symbols must be removed before the asylum seekers can move in, says UDI, according to the newspaper Dagen. - We want the accommodation offered to be...

    As the public’s fear and loathing surge, the frontrunner’s durable candidacy has taken a dark turn. MYRTLE BEACH, South Carolina—All politicians, if they are any good at their craft, know the truth about human nature. Donald Trump is very good, and he knows it better than most. Trump stands alone on a long platform, surrounded by a rapturous throng. Below and behind him—sitting on bleachers and standing on the floor—they fill this city’s cavernous, yellow-beige convention center by the thousands. As Trump will shortly point out, there are a lot of other Republican presidential candidates, but none of them get...

    President Obama used his weekly address to appeal to families counting their blessings on Thanksgiving, reminding Americans that the holiday isn’t only about turkey but a tribute to the deep immigration history that led to the nation’s founding. In 1620, a small band of pilgrims came to this continent, refugees who had fled persecution and violence in their native land, Obama says. Nearly 400 years later, we remember their part in the American story and we honor the men and women who helped them in their time of need. The Obama administration said Wednesday that states can't legally block the...

The first Muslim Caliph Abu Bakr introduced a guaranteed minimum standard of income, granting each man, woman, and child ten dirhams annually; this was later increased to twenty dirhams.[6] The first experimental Islamic commune was established during the Russian Revolution of 1917 as part of the Waisi movement, an early supporter of the Soviet government.

Forty-seven Democrats joined all but two Republicans as the House passed the measure by a veto-proof 289-137 margin, a major setback to the lame duck president on an issue —the Islamic State group and the refugees fleeing it — that shows no signs of easing. The vote exceeded the two-thirds majority required to override a veto, and came despite a rushed, early...

But, in fact, a wholly different kind of war is underway--an unrecognized battle costing thousands of lives. Christians are being killed in the Islamic world because of their religion.

    President Obama wants more Syrian Muslim refugees in the West. Speaking in Turkey on Monday, Obama explained that the West needed to open its heart to Muslim refugees, who after all were fleeing from terrorism in the Middle East to the safe and warm arms of the West. Meanwhile, Obama continued to maintain that Islamic radicalism presents no threat to the world.

    Heads up America, Syrian refugees have arrived and they are here to stay. Your State Department funds are being well invested in one-way tickets for Syrian refugees to New Orleans, Louisiana. FOX 8 WVUE New Orleans News, Weather, Sports, Social Former FBI Special Agent-In-Charge Jim Bernazzani gave his opinion on the matter. "If I was in charge of ISIL, logistically I'd take advantage of this situation and put my people in, into the United States," he said. Governor Bobby Jindal expressed his concerns to the president by writing a letter to the executive office. "As with former immigration crises and...

    BEAUMONT, Texas - For John Courts, the terrorist attacks in Paris that killed 129 provided yet more evidence of something he has long suspected: Syrian refugees are not to be trusted. "I think they're wolves in sheep's clothing," said Courts, 36, a police officer in this industrial town in southeast Texas who attended a political rally for Donald Trump Saturday. "Bringing those refugees here is very dangerous. Yeah, they need help, but it's going to bring terrorism right into our front door." Courts was relieved a few weeks ago when Trump first promised to kick all Syrian refugees out of...

    In Orlando, where he joined most of the Republican presidential field at a three-day "Sunshine Summit," Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.) got his biggest applause when he praised someone else's work. Jindal praised French President Francois Hollande for acting swiftly after Islamic terrorists massacred more than 100 people in Paris. "He's closed the borders," said Jindal. "It is time to close our borders and keep our people safe from these radical, evil terrorists." The audience's loud approval was a sort of vindication for Gov. Jindal. Earlier this year, after a trip to London, he had been criticized for saying that Muslims...

    With only 14 months left in office, President Obama is set to issue an executive order in what could be the most aggressive use of his authority to date: unilaterally closing the federal detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. “At this point, I would not take anything off the table in terms of the president doing everything that he can to achieve this critically important national security objective,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters earlier this month during a briefing. The administration is likely to submit a plan for how it would shutter the controversial site to Congress...

    In a performance of ingratitude so staggering it should almost be satire, a group of newly arrived migrants in the Netherlands have declared their accommodation so poor they want to go back to Syria. Clearly used to appearing in front of a television camera, a glamorous, well-coiffured and made up Syrian migrant launches into a tirade against the generosity of Western European states. Gesturing to the modern accommodation building behind her, the clearly middle-class Syrian complains in perfect English: “This is not a life when you get inside to a room without a TV. Just a bed, there is no...

    SID, Serbia — They arrived in an unceasing stream, 10,000 a day at the height, as many as a million migrants heading for Europe this year, pushing infants in strollers and elderly parents in wheelchairs, carrying children on their shoulders and life savings in their socks. They came in search of a new life, but in many ways they were the heralds of a new age. There are more displaced people and refugees now than at any other time in recorded history — 60 million in all — and they are on the march in numbers not seen since World...
