    "Abu Dujanah Al-Khorasani Brigade Claims Responsibility for Sending Tear Gas Letter to Paris Embassy" Submitted by Cerise Negulici on Thu, 08/05/2010 - 11:58 SNIPPET: "According to a message post, the formerly unidentified Abu Dujanah al-Khorasani Brigade has accepted that it was responsible for sending out a tear gas letter to the embassy, last week. It was reported that the two workers of the embassy, who held the letter, underwent a check-up and were then discharged by the city hospital. The French officials are examining the July 30 episode, Paul Patin said on Wednesday. It was deemed that the letter had...
  • Private Enterprise Does It Better

    Click here to find out more! In "Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity," I bet my readers $1,000 that they couldn't name one thing that government does better than the private sector. I am yet to pay. Free enterprise does everything better. Why? Because if private companies don't do things efficiently, they lose money and die. Unlike government, they cannot compel payment through the power to tax. Even when a private company operates a public facility under contract to government, it must perform. If it doesn't, it will be "fired" -- its contract won't be renewed. Government is never fired. Contracting...

    The Union of Jewish Students in France (UEJF) announced on Sunday that Swastikas had been discovered last Thursday on the frontages and windows of a dozen kosher stores in Paris. A police source in Paris said that four Nazi swastikas were traced with a black marker on two shops, as well as on the wall of a Jewish school and on a nearby building of the Boulevard Voltaire (which is located in Paris’ 11th district). UEJF described the incident as “a new demonstration of anti-Semitic hatred.”

  • Blacks Can't Be Racist, Says Paris.

    Now listen up, white people! You CANNOT BE A VICTIM OF RACISM, because according to Paris Lewis, the head of the Black Panther racists, black people cannot be racist. I’m not making this up…see the video. His assertion is that blacks cannot be racist because their ancestors suffered as slaves. So, by his assertion, if you are victimized by the Black Panther racists, you are not a victim. This guy Paris is a college educated lawyer. Does he know how to look up something in a dictionary? Racism has nothing to do with past experience, but rather a view of...

    Forget the death penalty for terrorists. Now even life without parole may vi olate their "human rights." So, at least, ruled the Paris-based European Court of Human Rights, which has barred the extradition of four Islamist radicals to the United States for trial. The reason: The four face the possibility of a life sentence in a federal supermax prison -- where inmates are confined to their cells for 23 hours a day. And that, says the court, may constitute psychological torture. As opposed, say, to the kind of murder and mayhem the four men hoped to inflict on thousands of...

    PARIS — French police have struck a blow to a black-market trade that has long flourished in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower: informal peddling of mini tower replicas. Police detained 39 people in breaking up a Chinese-run ring of illegal Senegalese immigrants accused of selling unauthorized Eiffel Tower souvenirs, a spokeswoman for the Paris police headquarters said Thursday. Several vendors were arrested at or near the tower itself in the raids this week, while their Chinese employers were detained in offices and a building used for storing the merchandise, the spokeswoman said. She was not authorized to be publicly...

    Extremist imams may lose nationality: Sarkozy PARIS, July 19 (AFP) - France's tough-talking Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy promised "zero tolerance" Tuesday for Muslim leaders who encourage attacks such as the bombings in London on July 7 and said he would strip them of their French nationality. "We have to be much stricter against those who indoctrinate young suicide bombers," he told Liberation newspaper. "I am going to launch proceedings to deprive French imams who preach violence and fundamentalism of their nationality; systematically expel those who do not respect our values and are not French; and step up monitoring of places...

    French organizers of a so-called “pork sausage and booze” party in Paris – designed as a deliberate provocation against Muslims – will move it from a heavily Muslim neighborhood to the Arc de Triomphe on Friday. The group, "Identity Block," called the new venue “Plan B,” after Paris police banned their bash this week on grounds of maintaining public order. Advertised on Facebook and receiving some 7,000 RSVPs, the party is billed as a “resistance to the Islamization of France.” It was initially planned to take place next to a mosque in the 18th district after Friday prayers, and on...

    A group of respected former world leaders and academic figures came together in Paris earlier this month to establish the Friends of Israel initiative to combat what they called the "delegitimation of the State of Israel." The group was led by former Spanish prime minister Jose Maria Aznar and included Nobel Peace Prize laureate and former First Minister of Northern Ireland David Trimble, former Peruvian president Alejandro Toledo, Italian philosopher Marcelo Pear, British historian Andrew Roberts and former US ambassador to the UN John Bolton. In a press release prior to the Paris event, the group expressed its outrage over...

    Note: Video included at link. SNIPPET: "Now, law enforcement officials appear increasingly concerned Al-Shabaab members are trying to come back to America. But these members aren't disenchanted young men like Hassan, seeking to escape the terrorists' hold. Rather, the concern is that they are returning either to recruit more members or perhaps to plot attacks here." SNIPPET: "Al-Shabaab represents a "threat to the whole nation, all of the world," Ahmed told the IPT. "Everywhere they could recruit somebody they will try – Europe, North America, Australia, Africa…And they want to disrupt world peace." Ahmed warned that Al-Shabaab's main focus in...

Abdirahman Ali Gaall was arrested Sunday at Montreal's Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, said Robert Gervais, an Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada spokesman.

The paintings disappeared early Thursday from the Paris Museum of Modern Art, across the Seine River from the Eiffel Tower in one of the French capital's most chic and tourist-frequented neighborhoods.

    One year after rejoining NATO military command, France wants to see the alliance's headquarters cut down in size, officials in Defence Minister Herve Morin's office told AFP on Tuesday. French officers feel the Atlantic alliance's 12,500-strong command staff is too large and its structures too unwieldy for 21st century combat. Paris officials have contacted NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and US Defence Secretary Robert Gates urging that plans be drawn up to abolish redundant and overlapping command structures, they said. "This rationalisation could allow us to cut down manpower and command structures by a third and at the same...
