Other Items That Caught Our Eye This Week - w/e 9 December

by The Participator – 11 Dec 2017

We have had some complaints that our new “GOOD NEWS” section is nothing of the kind, that it is in fact “fake good news” – bad news dressed up to look like something it is not. We promise to try harder to find some real good news from now on.


BAD NEWS SECTION


THE HUMAN TSUNAMI CONTINUES

From Gatestone Institute:

Europe’s Migrant Crisis: Millions Still to Come

Quotes:

More than six million migrants are waiting in countries around the Mediterranean to cross into Europe, according to a classified German government report leaked to Bild.

The President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, said that Europe is “underestimating” the scale and severity of the migration crisis.

In an interview with Il Messagero, Tajani said there would be an exodus “of biblical proportions that would be impossible to stop” if Europe failed to confront the problem now ….

The Glozi plan is to normalize mass migrations, taking control away from the people smugglers in the process – it isn’t working out too well so far.

BBC PANORAMA – FOREIGN AID FUNDING JIHADIS

BBC Panorama produced a program claiming that foreign aid is being diverted to funding jihadi groups:

Jihadis You Pay For

Who would have thought it…


DATA PROTECTION OR THREAT TO PRESS FREEDOM?

The Guardian is concerned about a UK data protection bill that will give the information commissioner power to decide whether a journalist is using personal data fairly prior to an article’s publication.

The data protection bill is yet another legal threat to UK press freedom

The Daily Telegraph appears to share these concerns (premium):

Clause 164 is an odious threat to press freedom

Probably we all should be concerned about this …


BEING CALLED NAMES IS UPSETTING (IF YOU’RE A SNOWFLAKE)

From the Daily Telegraph:

Don’t call us snowflakes – it damages our mental health, say young people


SHOCKING BACON CRIME SENTENCE IN THE US

From Reuters:

Florida man sentenced to 15 years in prison for vandalizing mosque

The article states that he was given a further 15 years probationary sentence after he had served his time in prison.

So if you were wondering who rules over you these days….


JOINING ISIS IS NOT SUCH A BIG THING?

From the Express:

Briton who fought for IS jailed for 10 years


GOOD NEWS SECTION


A RETURN TO COMMON SENSE REGARDING TOILETS?

From the Daily Telegraph:

Oxford college votes down calls for gender neutral toilets amid fears it will make students feel ‘uncomfortable’

Quote:

Calling for a secret ballot, one said: “I think it’s very easy in a public ballot for genuine concerns to be misinterpreted as being transphobic. …”


MORE WOMEN IN THE MILITARY

Good news for women’s equality this week. From the Daily Mail:

SAS considers watering down its gruelling selection tests to give women a better chance of joining the elite unit

Quote:

‘There will be changes to the selection of women but it is not about lowering standards - it’s about levelling the playing field.

Don’t they mean levelling the battle field?

A JIHADI REFORM CENTRE

Jihadis can be reformed apparently, they have been misunderstanding Islam. From the Daily Telegraph:

Escape from Isil, part 3: Inside the centre trying to reform jihadists

We are very relieved to hear this.
