    Pop singer Aaron Carter walked back his endorsement of GOP frontrunner Donald Trump over the weekend — claiming to have received death threats over his public support — and pledged to not vote in the upcoming election. In February, Carter endorsed Trump by asking his 500 thousand followers, “Does America want to have a president who FOLLOWS or someone who leads? I vote For @realdonaldtrump.” The 28-year-old was inundated with personal attacks and described as “racist,” “xenophobic,” and “sexist” by scores of Twitter users. After one user asked others to contact the singer’s management team to request he be dropped...

    Japan accepted only 27 refugees last year and rejected almost all applications, officials said Saturday, as rights groups urged the government to allow more people in. The country has long been nervous about an influx of refugees into its homogeneous society and has tightly restricted the number it accepts. Of the thousands seeking refugee status, five were Syrian, only three of which were accepted -- a far cry from the massive influx of Syrians into Europe from the war-torn Middle East nation last year....

    Helen Thomas Defends Comments on Israelis in Radio Interview Thomas Says Remarks on Israelis 'Distorted,' Calls Charge of Anti-Semitism 'Baloney' By DEVIN DWYER WASHINGTON, Oct. 12, 2010 Veteran White House journalist Helen Thomas, who resigned in June over comments many viewed as anti- Semitic, has taken to the airwaves to defend the remarks, saying they were "exactly what I thought." "I hit the third rail," Thomas told Ohio radio station WMRN-AM in an interview that aired today. "You cannot criticize Israel in this country and survive." Thomas, 90, caused an uproar May 27 when she said Israelis should "get the...

    The Congress has received lots of free advice lately from Mexican government officials and illegal aliens waving Mexico's flag in mass demonstrations coast-to-coast. Most of it takes the form of bitter complaints about our actual or prospective treatment of immigrants from that country who have gotten into this one illegally — or who aspire to do so. If you think these critics are mad about US immigration policy now, imagine how upset they would be if we adopted an approach far more radical than the bill they rail against which was adopted last year by the House of Representatives —...

    Two men attacked and stabbed a nine-year-old girl of mixed Russian and African heritage in St. Petersburg, seriously injuring her in an apparent xenophobic attack, officials said Sunday. The Saturday evening attack took place in an apartment building hallway and was the latest incident targeting foreigners or minorities in Russia's second-largest city. Aliu Tunkara, who heads a civic group for Africans in St. Petersburg, said the girl was returning home after a walk and had just entered the building when two men stabbed her. Alexander Klaus, an investigator with the city prosecutor's office, said in televised comments that during the...

    What is happening to Holland that once stood as the shining light of tolerance and religious freedom? A country that the entire world admired for its courageous protection of Jews and other persecuted people during World War II? It would appear that Holland has forgotten its own history. In a series of attempts to discourage immigration from Third World countries, the Dutch have introduced a legislative proposal that would require some potential immigrants to take an examination to prove that they have an understanding of the Dutch language and culture. This applies to individuals who marry a Dutch citizen or...
