    A leading employment judge has demanded new laws to help the overweight fight “fattism” by allowing them to sue colleagues who offend them. Philip Rostant, the training director for the Employment Tribunals of England and Wales, claimed in an academic paper that fat people are paid on average less and are more likely to be fired.

    The Real Kayla MuellerPosted By Matthew Vadum On February 13, 2015 @ 12:55 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 11 Comments The presumed Islamic State murder victim Kayla Mueller isn’t quite the saintly martyr that President Obama and the media are trying to make Americans believe.Family and friends told reporters Mueller was “a deeply idealistic young woman eager to help those less fortunate.” A neighbor of hers, a 66-year-old Vietnam veteran, said Mueller “represented everything good about being an American. In the outgoing battle between good and evil, she represented the best of the good. She took great risks to help...

Abdullah Abu Rahma, coordinator of the popular committee in the village of Bil’in where Kayla joined the protests, told ISM: “Kayla came to Palestine to stand in solidarity with us. She marched with us and faced the military that occupies our land side by side with us. For this, Kayla will always live in our hearts. We send all our support to her family and will continue, like Kayla, to work against injustice wherever it is.” Kayla Mueller volunteered with the...

    Making a career for yourself as a fake Holocaust survivor is horrible enough. Marketing yourself as a fake Holocaust survivor who attacks Jews is even worse. But that’s what Hedy Epstein, a “Holocaust Survivor” who survived the Holocaust in the UK, has been doing. But then Michael Brown stole the spotlight from Hedy Epstein‘s latest Gaza tantrum, so she headed to Ferguson to get herself arrested.

    Sadly for the people of New Jersey and New York, the New York ISM Current Business Conditions Index fell to 45.9 signalling contraction. The employment index fell to 47.8 after 4 months of above 50 readings. This came after a poorer than anticipated job openings reports (JOLTS). The print for September was 3561 which is exactly the same as the print for August, although the August number was revised higher to 3661. Hence, job openings actually fell in September. The numbers within the yellow box show that job openings have been level since early 2012. Gold rose this morning to...

By Joel Leyden Israel News AgencyJerusalem, Israel --- September 1, 2012 ... Part of the following was communicated by the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the Israel News Agency. Whether from Hamas, the PA or an Israeli living in Sderot, we would all agree on one thing - the death of Rachel Corrie was tragic. Where we disagree is that a free and democratic court in Haifa, Israel believes that this accident never...

    A verdict is to be handed down Tuesday on a suit blaming the IDF for the death of activist Rachel Corrie. NGO Monitor says, “Blame the ISM.” Corrie was an American activist for the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) who was killed in 2003 when an IDF bulldozer hit her as she protested the demolition of homes in Rafiah, in southern Gaza. Her family filed a suit in Israel against the IDF, accusing it of irresponsibility. Corrie's father believes the driver of the bulldozer intentionally struck her with his vehicle, while the soldier testified that his view was obstructed by a...

    3 Must-See Charts For Anyone Who Thinks We're Going Into A Recession Joe Weisenthal Jul. 3, 2012, 3:25 PM Our friend Matt Busigin, who writes the blog Macrofugue, has sent us 3 brilliant charts that give some much-needed context to the recent economic data. What they do is look at the average progression of various datapoints in the 12 before a recession (black line) and compare that to the progression of that same datapoint right now (blue line). So for example, here's the average progression of YOY growth in auto sales in (black line) vs. the YOY growth in auto...

    Deutsche Bank: It's Time To Decide Whether The US Recovery Is Over Sam Ro Jul. 3, 2012, 9:02 AM According to the National Bureau of Economic Analysis, the U.S. economic recovery began in June 2009, which means it has been growing for a solid 36 months. Yesterday, we learned that the June ISM report collapesd to 49.7 from 53.5 in May. Economists were looking for a reading of 52.0. A reading below 50 signals contraction. So, are we heading for a recession? Deutsche Bank's Jim Reid notes that the duration of the average recovery usually ends right around now: H2...

    A new video released Friday shows that Lt. Col. Shalom Eisner, the commander who was dismissed from his position after an edited video showed him using force to restrain a protester, may have hit four other protesters – including women riding bicycles – during the same incident. ..... It should also be noted that the video consists of two clips filmed and edited by Palestinian Authority television, a fact which may suggest it was edited, as was the original video depicting Eisner, to remove some of the protesters’ provocations. The new video shows protesters arriving on bikes to confront Eisner...

    Flytilla activists scrawl swastika at IsrFlytilla activists scrawl swastika at Israel airport Tuesday, April 17, 2012 | Ryan Jones The so-called "peace" activists who attempted to infiltrate Israel via Ben Gurion Airport on Sunday would likely identify with those of Israel's most emphatic critics who insist that despite their disdain for the Jewish state, they are not anti-Semitic. But more often than not, the behavior of these individuals betrays their true disposition. That is what happened on Monday, when it was discovered that at least one of the flytilla activists who was detained at Ben Gurion had scrawled a Nazi...

    The International Solidarity Movement (ISM), made more famous by its activist’s confrontation with an IDF soldier, is known as a left-wing pacifist group, but its sole mission in backing “Palestine” is to defame Israel. Whether it qualifies as being “pacifist” depends on whether the definition includes backing the Hamas terrorist organization and Arab “resistance.” The activist from Denmark was one of approximately two dozen bicyclists stopped by the IDF at a checkpoint in the Jordan Valley on Saturday. During a two-hour confrontation, an IDF officer said he suffered wounds, including broken bones, at the hands of the activists who beat...

    The Institute for Supply Management said its manufacturing gauge dropped to 50.8% last month – just slightly above a 2011 low - from 51.6% in September. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch had expected the closely followed index to rise to 52.1%. Reading over 50% indicate more manufacturers are expanding instead of shrinking.
