  • Man arrested on suspicion of abusing Hickman student

    11/29/2015 10:42:48 AM PST · by Impala64ssa · 19 replies
    Columbia police on Wednesday arrested a 53-year-old man who allegedly pulled a teenage family member out of Hickman High School by her hair and slapped her. Police re-sponded at 3 p.m. Tuesday to the school, 1104 N. Providence Road, for a child abuse call, Officer Latisha Stroer said in an email. Youssif Z. Omar was at the school and noticed a 14-year-old female family member was not wearing a hijab, a traditional headscarf that some Muslim women wear. Omar became irate, Stroer said, grabbed the girl “very violently by the hair” and pulled her outside and down a flight of...

    Turkey recovered the body of a Russian pilot from northern Syria and presented it to Russian diplomats on Sunday, five days after shooting down his warplane in an incident that wrecked relations between two of the main powers involved in Syria's war. A coffin carrying Oleg Peshkov arrived by ambulance on the tarmac of Hatay Airport in southern Turkey near the Syrian border, a Reuters photographer said. It was flown to the capital Ankara, where according to Russia's RIA news agency it was met at an airfield by Moscow's ambassador and military attache. The Russian embassy declined to comment and...

    The planned German military involvement in response to France’s call for more countries to help fight the militants after the Paris attacks would see troops provide service support to ships and reconnaissance planes, but would not include direct combat. The plan still needs approval from parliament, with the government seeking a mandate before the end of the year, said Volker Wieker, chief of staff of the German army. ... He added that troops would be sent to Syria quickly once parliament had approved a mandate for the operation, meaning soldiers could be deployed as soon as the end of this...

    More than 3,000 women and girls were taken captive when ISIS attacked ancestral Yazidi villages around northwestern Iraq's Sinjar Mountain in August 2014. Nearly half-a-million people have been displaced since, according to the Kurdistan Regional Government's Yazidi Affairs Directorate. Today, community leaders say around 2,000 women and girls are still being bought and sold in ISIS-controlled areas. The young become sex slaves and older women are beaten and used as house slaves, according to survivors and accounts from ISIS militants.

An hour and 6000 words later, it was clear that he had come to bury it. The expected encomium became an unintended obituary. Kerry started by building an edifice of excuses for what he knew, and didn't want to admit, was failure on a grand scale. To heighten his profile, Kerry told the audience that he had just had lunch with Henry Kissinger who had admitted that the world was more...

Tahir Elci, one of the country's best-known advocates for Kurdish rights, was shot in the head during a chaotic gunbattle in Diyarbakir, the de facto capital for Turkey's Kurdish minority, which broke out after the killing of a policeman. It was unknown who fired the shot that killed Mr. Elci, though Kurdish politicians believe he was shot deliberately.

    President Obama has already started implementing his plan to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees to America. However, given that some of the terrorists who attacked Paris snuck into Europe using fake passports pretending to be Syrian refugees, coupled with several attempts by Syrian nationals to illegally cross our borders, most Americans are worried about the refugee policy and have called for it to be paused. In response, President Obama has dug in his heels. He harshly criticizes opponents of his plan and dismisses anyone and any facts that run counter to his narrative — facts such as: 1.

The reason Farage opposes the plan is that he remains unconvinced that Cameron has a global long-term strategy. Such a strategy is necessary, Farage believes, to truly destroy ISIS and the radical-Islamic threat in general, and must include cooperation with Russia. "I don’t back bombing Syria on current terms. Whether we bomb or not we still face threat on London’s streets. I think to go to war you need to...

    170,000 Polish patriots marched through the capital to end Islamic invasion in their country. Check this out:Did you see this anywhere in our American mainstream media? I don’t think so! They completely censored it from American eyes, lest they be inspired to stand up against Obama’s sinister plans to import up to 200,000 so-called “Syrian refugees.”According to Top Right News:http://toprightnews.com/this-nation-just-had-a-massive-protest-against-islam-horrified-media-censors-it/ Described as the ‘largest demonstration in Polish history’, over 100,000 Polish nationalists took to the streets yesterday in the city center of Warsaw against immigration into Europe and the European Union—and in particular against the latter’s demands that Poland...

    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...

    Holland, which has been suffering from the "refugee" influx even before Muslim immigrants were called "refugees," can now expel them without worrying about European notions of "human rights." A Dutch high court on Thursday upheld a government policy of withholding food and shelter to rejected asylum-seekers who refuse to be repatriated, giving legal backing to one of Europe's toughest immigration policies. The Raad van State or Council of State, which reviews the legality of government decisions, found that the new policy of conservative Prime Minister Mark Rutte does not contravene the European Convention on Human Rights.A rejected asylum seeker...

    Florida business gained national attention after terror attack. A lawsuit filed by a Muslim activist organization against a Florida firearms retailer who posted a “Muslim Free Zone” sign has been dismissed and the case ordered closed because the statement was protected by the First Amendment and the activists couldn’t show they were injured. The decision was released by U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom in a case brought by a local chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations against Florida Gun Supply, which was defended by officials with the American Freedom Law Center. AFLC Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi said, “This dismissal...

    The Obama administration has warned states to comply with federal efforts to resettle Syrian refugees in communities around the U.S. or else find their states subject to enforcement action. In a letter this week, the Office of Refugee Resettlement threatens states concerned about resettling Syrians with punitive responses if they refuse to accept the refugees. ORR explains that states may not refuse ORR-funded benefits for refugees on the basis of religion and national origin.“Accordingly, states may not categorically deny ORR-funded benefits and services to Syrian refugees,” ORR Director Robert Carey wrote in the letter. “Any state with such a policy...

    From Reuters: “Turkish fighter jets shot down a Russian-made warplane near the Syrian border on Tuesday after repeatedly warning it over air space violations, Turkish officials said, but Moscow said it could prove the jet had not left Syrian air space.” Just the other day, “American warplanes destroyed around 280 of ISIS' oil tanker trucks along the Syria-Iraq border on Monday, U.S. officials told NBC News.”[SNIP] “U.S. air strikes targeting ISIS oil assets are so rare that PBS was caught using footage of Russian fighter jets bombing an oil storage facility in Syria and passing it off as evidence...

    The FBI is pulling out all the stops to try and keep track of 48 Islamic radicals who may carry out a terrorist attack. Elite surveillance teams consisting of up to a dozen agents, along with assistance from local law enforcement, are watching the radicals 24-7. But the problem is that these suvelliance operations are enormously expensive and take manpower away from other anti-terror operations. Fox News: "There is a very significant number of people that are on suspicious watch lists, under surveillance," Republican Sen. Dan Coats said. Coats, who sits on the Select Committee on Intelligence, would not comment...

    Am I a Racist? Am I a racist for opposing the quick entry into Canada of 25,000 migrants from Syria? November 27, 2015 Howard Rotberg In the U.S., there is considerable opposition, especially on the State level, to high numbers of Syrian and other Middle Eastern migrants entering the country. But in Canada, with Justin Trudeau and his Liberals having recently defeated Stephen Harper and his Conservatives, it is a different story. Day after day, most of our Canadian media broadcast a message that anyone opposing the hurried entry into Canada of 25,000 migrants by the end of February...

    While admitting that he was not in possession of all of the facts regarding Turkey's downing of a Russian warplane on November 24th, President Obama was quick to blame only Russia. He said at a joint news conference with French President Francois Hollande that Turkey had "a right to defend its territory and its airspace." Obama also criticized Russia for propping up Syrian President Assad by going after the so-called "moderate" rebels rather than concentrating on ISIS. From the information that has come out so far, however, Turkey appears to have acted precipitously, without sufficient justification or forethought about the...
