"Honduras will immediately open our official diplomatic mission and this will extend our embassy to the capital of Israel, Jerusalem." The Hernandez government had previously floated the possibility of moving the Honduran...

    Many people believe that nationalism and democracy are antithetical, Dimitry Savvin says; but the only successful transitions in East Europe and the former Soviet space from occurred where nationalism reinforced democratic ideas. The same thing will be true for a free Russia or such a state will not exist. The émigré Russian nationalist says, the success stories in the former communist region have been Poland, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Georgia, in each of which democracy and nationalism reinforced one another. In these cases, Savvin continues, “nationalist ideology, in sync with anti-communism and an orientation toward Euro-Atlantic...

    ... Moving from visions to concrete defense projects has always been difficult because of the nations' diverging philosophies: The French are more likely to opt for intervention, while the Germans are very reluctant on the military stage. That should improve, however, as Germany and France have pledged assistance — including military assistance — "in the event of an armed attack" on one of the two countries.

    BRUSSELS are likely to buckle to Britain’s key Brexit demands, due to uproar among EU countries over fears of an economic decline in the case of a no deal departure. The EU27 will give in to Prime Minister Theresa May’s demands to make the Irish border backstop a legally temporary measure. The key British demand is the only obstacle holding up Mrs May’s deal from passing in Parliament. The DUP and dozens of Brexiteers have vowed to vote down the deal this month unless changes are made to the backstop.

    Heavy snowfall continued Thursday in parts of Austria and southern Germany, with several places cut off and the bad weather expected to persist. Snow was causing problems in other parts of Europe, even in Norway’s Arctic Svalbard archipelago. Austrian police said that a 16-year-old boy from Australia was killed in an avalanche in St. Anton am Arlberg as he was skiing with his family on Wednesday. In neighboring Slovakia, the mountain rescue service said a 37-year-old Slovak man was killed by an avalanche in the Mala Fatra mountains. That brought to at least 16 the number of weather-related deaths reported...

    The New York Times is quick to the typeset to explain how Brussels is desperately offended because President Trump and Secretary Pompeo have lowered the importance of the EU. Officials from the European Union are apoplectic that U.S. officials have downgraded their status amid the official registry of diplomatic protocols. (snip) -- BRUSSELS — The Trump administration downgraded the diplomatic status of the European Union’s delegation to the United States last year without making a formal announcement or informing the bloc about the change, a European official said on Tuesday.

    McClatchy reported on Thursday that unidentified sources (“people with knowledge of the matter”) say there is evidence placing Michael Cohen’s cell phone in or near Prague in “late summer” 2016. The story must be scrutinized because it has some significant holes. ... This must be read carefully and not overinterpreted. Advocates for the Steele dossier assuredly want it to be overinterpreted. But what is actually being said here doesn’t tell us anything definitive. First, to cut to the chase, the case I made in April 2018 applies here. This information cannot be from the source you immediately imagine — i.e.,...

    Václav Klaus, former President of the Czech Republic talks with Echo TV about the Central European Visegrad Group and the future of Europe. Klaus fears democracy “is gone” in Europe and he lashes out at the European Union and the gap between elitist governments and their citizens. Around 6 minutes into the interview Klaus is asked: Do you think that there is a chance to talk frankly about the very serious issues that determine the future of Europe, which were also the subject of the conference? The former President answers: “Mass migration co-organized by the European political elite based on...

    Slovakia will not have a representative at the December 10 UN meeting in Marrakesh where the Migration Compact will be signed. Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini stated this as a final decision, given that the cabinet approved the parliamentary resolution about the Marrakesh Pact on December 5. At the same time, the prime minister indicated he will send a letter with Slovakia's comments on the document. The Migration Compact has been at the centre of the conflict between the ruling coalition Smer and Slovak National Party (SNS) and the Smer-nominated Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajãák. The minister defended the compact and insisted...
  • Romania joins Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and Czech Republic in rejection of Muslim migrants

    EU President Juncker wants to allow Romania into the border-free Schengen zone, no doubt as an additional Muslim migration route, now that other Eastern European countries have closed their borders to it. Judging by Romania’s disdain for Muslims, it looks to be a non-starter. Romanians insist “our children must also grow up in safe and civilized conditions. We don’t want to end up like Western Europe where they are afraid to let children walk to school alone, or for their wives to be alone in the streets.” Romania is using technology and extra border control agents to prevent Muslims from...

    A former Eastern bloc country - that recognizes a totalitarian system - has passed a law which will effectively ban Islam from gaining official status as a religion. Those that have lived under the draconian fist of tyrannical regimes know that fist even if it's cloaked (or burqa-ed) in religion. And they are correct to do so and protect their country form the mayhem occurring in the rest of the EU.I have written ad nauseam, and many better than myself (Pamela Geller, Andrew Bostom, Robert Spencer, Raymond Ibrahim, to name a few) of the true barbaric nature of this ideology.As...

    The predominantly Christian country of Slovakia passed a law on Nov. 30 that effectively bans Islam as an officially recognized religion, which also blocks Islam from receiving any state subsidies for its schools, reported Reuters. The prime minister, Robert Fico, said in May that "Islam has no place" in Slovakia. Prior to the law being passed, Slovak National Party Chairman Andrej Danko said, "Islamization starts with a kebab and it's already under way in Bratislava -- let's realize what we can face in 5 to 10 years." "We must do everything we can so that no mosque is built in...

The former communist state has fiercely resisted EU efforts to cope with a big influx of mainly Muslim migrants into Europe since 2015, in part by opposing quotas to share out asylum seekers among EU members.

    Leftist Prime Minister Robert Fico won Slovakia's general elections on Saturday on the back of a strident anti-refugee platform. Fico vowed to "never bring even a single Muslim to Slovakia" and filed a lawsuit against an EU-wide plan to redistribute refugees across the bloc. Fico's strongly anti-refugee policies echo those of other hardliners in the EU's poorer ex-communist east, including Czech President Milos Zeman, Hungarian Premier Viktor Orban and Poland's Jaroslaw Kaczynski.

    In the Polish capital Warsaw, nearly 10,000 people, many chanting anti-Islamic slogans, marched through the city, an AFP correspondent said. “Islam will be the death of Europe”, one of the banners said. Around 1,500 anti-migrant protestors also rallied in the Slovak capital Bratislava, some holding up banners reading: “You’re not welcome here so go home”, an AFP correspondent said. Police in the Czech capital Prague said some 800 people protested against the arrival of refugees and migrants, holding up banners saying: “Send them back!” and “Protect the borders”.
