    LONDON: Nearly half of British Asians would only marry someone of their own race, according to an ICM-BBC survey on Monday. A total of 44% said they would not consider inter-racial marriage — almost five times higher than the figure for white Britons, of whom 9% said they would only marry within their race. But 53% of Britons with Asian origins said they would not mind a mixed-race marriage, compared to 87% for whites. The survey probed 500 people aged under 34 living in UK who had roots in South Asia.
  • French immigration to Israel at all-time high

    12/25/2015 7:57:45 AM PST · by SeekAndFind · 17 replies
    Jerusalem (AFP) -- French immigration to Israel reached a record high in 2015, Israeli officials said Thursday, citing "physical insecurity and financial uncertainty" as main driving forces. Around 8,000 French Jews were expected to have arrived over the course of the year, a spokesman for Israel's immigration ministry told AFP, noting it would be an "all-time record". Final data for 2015 was not available yet. France's Jewish community is estimated at between 500,000 and 600,000 people, the largest in Europe and one of the largest in the world. In January, after four Jews were murdered in an attack on a...

    The US President is weak, the Spanish leader is dim, the German Chancellor is clinging on to France’s coat-tails and the head of the European Commission is irrelevant. That, at any rate, is the world according to President Sarkozy, who has spent the week airing his unvarnished opinions of Barack Obama and an array of international politicians — abruptly ending France’s honeymoon with the US and needling Washington on several strategic issues. In the latest in a stream of accounts from the Élysée Palace, Mr Sarkozy was quoted yesterday as telling an all-party group of MPs that Mr Obama was...

    A large group of juveniles robbed a designer store in Georgetown Tuesday evening and stole $13,000 worth of items, according to D.C. Police. The incident happened just before 6 p.m. at the Diesel store in the 3000 block of M Street NW. More than 20 people, police said, went into the store and grabbed several items off the racks, according to a police report. They stole four leather jackets, costing about $800, and an additional $12,000 worth of merchandise. One person who worked at the store was said to have been pushed from him behind by someone in the crowd....

    Violence broke out on the streets of Brussels today as more than 100,000 people marched against EU-enforced austerity. Water cannons and tear gas were used in the centre of the Belgian capital as riot police tried to bring the situation under control. Fighting broke out soon after the end of a largely peaceful march organised by trade unions and left wing politicians. For two hours, the demonstrators had peacefully marched down the main thoroughfares of central Brussels to protest government policies that will raise the pension age, contain wages and cut into public services. But violence broke out at the...

    The city in the pictures is Marseille, France's second largest city, for many years considered as one of the cleanest, most beautiful cities in the world. See what it looks like now. In her best-selling book The Force of Reason, the great, pioneer counterjihad writer Oriana Fallaci talked about Marseille as a symbol par excellence of the devastation, ugliness and filth brought by the Muslim invasion of Europe. Europe, she wrote, is becoming unrecognisable. Marseille is "no longer a French city, it is a Maghrebin city". Arabic ​is the first language spoken in Marseille, and French only the second. 95%...

    A wooden boat carrying up to 200 migrants has sunk just one kilometre (half a mile) off the Libyan coast, the coast guard said on Saturday, and most passengers were feared drowned. The local coast guard said it had no boats of its own and had to commandeer fishing vessels in a rescue attempt after fishermen raised the alarm on Saturday morning. Migrants have been streaming out of North Africa in rickety boats in rising numbers for years. Many head for Italy, and so far in 2014, the total number reaching Italian shores has passed 100,000, the Italian government said...

    The Jewish National Fund held an event honoring Israel in the heart of Paris Sunday, but the real reason for the event was a desire by Israeli authorities to support French Jews in a time of trouble. Over 15,000 people, most of them Jews, are expected to attend the two-day event – an exhibit titled “Israel Today and Tomorrow.” The event received unprecedented security: central streets were cordoned off, and police snipers were placed on rooftops. Ultranationalists gathered with the intent of marching on the event, but were blocked by police – both uniformed and undercover – a long distance...

[…] The march was organized by a group of some 50 small and mainly right-wing organizations and, while it failed to attract bigger anti-Hollande movements, Kol Yisrael radio reported that it was attended by neo-Nazi movements and Muslim extremists. The demonstrators chanted anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli slogans, used the “quenelle” anti-Semitic gesture that was invented by controversial comic Dieudonné and sang the anthem of the Nazi collaborators during World War II, according to Kol Yisrael. …

Anne Hidalgo, who until recently was President Francois Hollande’s Socialist culture minister before running for mayor of the French capital, said there was more crime in the English capital, less entrepreneurial businesses starting up, and fewer foreign visitors. But she did concede that there was more dog waste on Paris pavements, and that notoriously rude Parisians 'should be kinder'.

Only 1,067 cars and vans were destroyed by arson, a “significant” reduction of more than 10 per cent compared to the number of vehicles set ablaze last year, according to Manuel Valls, the Interior Minister.

Investigators say the brutal violence in the Bristol, England neighborhood appears to be the result of a vicious rumor mill and a misguided police investigation. According to the Daily Mail, 44-year-old Bijan Ebrahimi was arrested in July after being accused of taking "inappropriate" images of neighborhood children. But after an investigation, police determined that Ebrahimi was actually taking pictures of kids he suspected of vandalizing his prized garden. Despite being released by police with no charges, the Daily Mail reports...

Stephan Turk, 67, shot his 18-year-old victim in the back as he and another robber were fleeing on a scooter with gems stolen from Turk's shop in the centre of Nice on the French Riviera. The thieves had punched and kicked the jeweller before forcing him to open his safe at gunpoint, behaviour that Turk's supporters believe should be taken into account when judging his heat-of-the-moment decision to run after them...

What the 37-year-old can’t understand is why they did it. They didn’t take his $500 bicycle. They ignored his cellphone. They didn’t want the $20 in his wallet. In fact, the victim said, “I didn’t hear a word.” And the lack of apparent motive is haunting the married father of two, who uses...

    The nightly rioting in Stockholm that establishment media ascribes merely to “youths,” is being carried out by Muslim immigrants. Muslim immigrants in Sweden now total slightly more than 6 percent of the population, providing additional support for the maxim that a Muslim population of 5 percent is a tipping point for political turmoil. In other countries, Muslim immigrants at that point have begun to seek concessions, including, typically, the right to govern themselves by Shariah, or Islamic law. In Sweden, the Muslim population has doubled in the last 14 years, with Muslims now accounting for over 41 percent of Sweden’s...

At least six vehicles were torched throughout the city late on Thursday while the police called for reinforcements from other Swedish cities bracing for further unrest. Firefighters were putting out flames that engulfed several cars and a school in immigrant-dominated areas of Stockholm. The night before, the fire brigades were called to some 90 different blazes.

It seems underlying tensions from high youth unemployment and rising nationalism against the nation's large immigrant population have been catalyzed by this seemingly unrelated event.

    A New Year’s Eve tradition for some in France of torching empty, parked cars has continued into 2013. Interior Minister Manuel Valls said Tuesday that 1,193 vehicles were burned overnight around the country, where the stunt began in the 1990s. “In France’s rundown suburbs, it has become as much of a New Year tradition as champagne and fireworks in more affluent neighbourhoods,” the Agence France-Presse

    The father of a Jewish family was badly beaten and the family home was completely trashed on Sunday by local youths in Marseille, France. Residents in their Jewish neighborhood are stunned following the incident. Marseilles is home to some 80,000 Jews – 10 percent of the general population but a small fraction compared to the 250,000 Muslims with whom they also live. It has been relatively quiet France's second-largest city this year, compared to other areas in the country where violent anti-Semitism has been on the rise.

Police were eventually able to identify the suspects as 7, 10 and 12-year-old boys....

Michael Hedges claims in a lawsuit against the East River Plaza shopping center that if there had been enough security at the mall, two teens wouldn’t have been able to send the shopping cart plunging four stories onto his wife’s head.

    When asked for their John Hancock, future generations might print it in block letters or scrawl some scribbles across the page. But odds are, they won't sign their name in cursive. They might not even be able to read it. Cursive, with its graceful loops and perfectly joined letters, seems soon to join the typewriter, VCR player and flip-phone as relics of a past age. Keyboarding skills, not cursive, were included in the Common Core, a set of national academic standards adopted last year by more than 40 states, including Florida.

A bunch of merchandise is gone." ... Part of Farah's problem, officers said, is that three large apartment...

At one point, police were ordered to tell those in the crowd to go into their apartments, leave or be arrested for unlawful assembly.
