The losers concent is where it's at or not.
Throwing a milkshake is no different than throwing a brick in my opinion...
UK PM Theresa May announces resignation amid fury over Brexit handling
She has been treated very nicely by being given the chance to jump before the push was about to happen. Nobody likes to see a dignified lady break down but can I get an amen.
No deal is now a probability. No time, next one will surely be a none remainer and the EU won't budge an inch on the existing deal. The only chance would come from the fact that many refusing her deal were doing so for personal reasons by not going for anything she put forward.
I sense a relief in the air even if it is having something else to focus on other than May's persistent attempt to push the same bad deal.
Boris wiff waff Johnson I hope will come through.
She should have jumped last year, I won't miss her one bit, best thing to happen and should have happened sooner...She has lost the plot and knows not what is in Britain's best interest...
I hear he is a 'friend' of Trump, might be a good thing...
In hindsight the fudging of our decision by those in the commons is ever more apparent. We are now alining in the correct fasion and will have the right people in place.
Trump Johnson relationship is our best way and I hope people are seeing behind all the guffaw.
I am exited for Nigel and the result tonight, Brussels I hope will now be ruing in some form for their despicable stance to a nation that has played such a part in history.
Which one will make the best decision for Brexit?...Which one has the best interest of Britain in mind?...Boris or Nigel?...
I personally trust Nigel Farage more than Boris.
Nearly all new Tory candidates have no deal back on the table. Now that is the lion leading the donkeys.
I will vote for Nigel in everything possible and if somehow this translates in the a general election, then they will all shit themselves.
But if there is no Nigel then I want Boris.
Something very big could be happening here.
This kind of behaviour is one of the reasons why we are where we are.
Gag reflex won't let them swallow it.
I'm all for another referendum to force it down their necks.
The remain candidates running in the race to be the next priminister plays like slapstick.
What would be worse.
No deal or Corbyn in number ten.
We are seeing this because of Muslim expansion and nothing else...
Germany 1933 or Europe 2019? You Decide
Are we seeing a repeat of Germany 1933?
Jewish shop owners are hounded, threatened and run out of town. Their businesses are the targets of prolonged campaigns of intimidation, culminating in months of demonstrations at their doors with up to a thousand angry protesters at a time shooting red paint bombs and mutilated dolls at employees.
Owners of these businesses threatened with death and (real) bombings. The threats including their families.
Police refuse to step in, saying the protesters are behaving lawfully. In fact, a top politician supports and is listed as a patron of the organization behind the protests.
Germany 1933? Or the UK in 2019? Actually both.
Since we know how the Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses which began in 1933 ended, let’s talk about what’s happening in today’s UK.
The Palestine Solidarity Campagin, of which Labour party head Jeremy Corbyn is a patron, has, in reality, been waging this campaign against Jewish businesses that sell Israeli products (both those originating from inside Israel proper as well as those made in the disputed territories) since 2001.
They have not only targeted Jewish businesses but also the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall, an Israeli theater company at Shakespeare’s Globe and an Israeli LGBT event in London.
The group is prominent in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement against Israel, which has been deemed anti-Semitic at its core by the U.S. State Department’s definition of anti-Semitism.
Most recently, the group has forced shops selling Israeli cosmetics to close, like the one owned by UK citizen Nissan Ayalon, 33, who was forced to move his business three times, starting from scratch each time, before finally giving up and fleeing the country.
“Eventually, I lost faith in being able to make a life once again in Britain,” Ayalon said in a newly-released film called Hounded, which documents the on-going campaign of intimidation of Jews who sell products from Israel. “I just couldn’t keep moving to a new city every two years. I had a family to look after.”
The true litmus test of anti-Semitism is whether the actions are against Jews per se (biogtry) or simply making a political statement. The BDS movement holds Jews to a different standard than in similar conflicts worldwide. It is a clear case of anti-Semitism.
Moreover, it is a known fact that while the movement has created little damage to Israel, the movement significantly harms the Palestinian people (another litmus test of its real raison d’etre: anti-Semitism).
Businesses that are targeted in Israel and forced to close because of the movement are mainly located in the disputed territories, which are known for employing large numbers of Palestinians (and paying them at a higher rate than they would receive working for Palestinian companies.
These jobs not only benefit the individuals themselves but also translate to more tax income for the Palestinian Authority – not to mention the good will and peace building atmosphere these companies have been known to create among their Jewish and Palestinian workers.
But the story doesn’t end there (and if it did, it would be bad enough).
Germany’s interior minister and the Berlin mayor allowed the annual pro-Iranian/pro-Hezbollah Al-Quds (Jerusalem) Day rally to take place in Berlin. The purpose of the rally is traditionally to call for the destruction of the Jewish state.
The U.S. embassy in Germany tweeted, “Germany’s federal courts decided years ago that Hezbollah is a unified organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel. Symbols of Hezbollah are banned, why not the entire organization?”
Ironically, just days after the rally, Angela Merkel, Germany’s leader, said, “There is to this day not a single synagogue, not a single daycare center for Jewish children, not a single school for Jewish children that does not need to be guarded by German policemen.”
The rally also came on the heels of an unprecedented reportreleased by Germany’s domestic security agency about how anti-Semitism among the country’s Muslim population is a major problem in the country.
Not only has Merkel and her interior minister blatantly refused to ban the internationally-recognized terror group Hezbollah dedicated to the destruction of Jews, they have refused to even entertain the question.
Small wonder that every Jewish establishment in Germany needs police protection.
And now, due to our ability to connect halfway across the world with a simply click of a button, this phenomena can be spread throughout the globe.
In Australia, a Muslim doctor has been the target of an intimidating anti-Semitic campaign for working with a Jewish organization that helps sick Palestinian children obtain necessary and life-saving treatment in Israeli hospitals.
Dr. Jamal Rifi is a prominent figure in Sydney’s Shiite Muslim community from Lebanon. He has been recognized for his work in preventing the radicalization of young Muslims by ISIS. Yet, Rifi is now considered an “enemy” by pro-Iranian and pro-Hezbollah activists in his community.
He and his family have received death threats. He is afraid to go back to Lebanon to visit his mother for fear of being arrested and prosecuted by Lebanon’s Military Court.
Yet, is Rifi’s situation that much different than Germany’s (current) government-sanctioned anti-Semitism?
In 1933, Jewish businesses began to be targeted by Nazis. It was slow. In fact, the first boycott was a one-day affair. It progressed to a campaign of ever-increasing harassment until it culminated in systematic pillaging, forced transfer of ownership to Nazi Party activists, arrests and ultimately the murder of Jews who owned businesses (of which, in Berlin alone, there were 50,000).
I am not one of those people who think Nazi Germany can happen again. Many would call me naïve; others might call me unwarrantedly optimistic. Perhaps they are right.
But the world is different, certainly when it comes to what we are willing to tolerate and not.
The problem with this equation is the fact that our “tolerance” has become a double-edged sword.
In this case, we have extended our tolerance to Islamists, who, in the cases above, use Israel as the cover for their anti-Semitism. If anything is as dangerous in our time for Jews as it was in the 1930s in Germany, it is the pass Islamists are given when they play the Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, a former member of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood front, recalls being at a group meeting in the early 1990s where they came up with the idea to use “Islamophobia” as a political weapon. “This loathsome term is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics,” he said." class="glossaryLink " target="_blank" style="box-sizing: border-box; transition: all 0.5s ease-in-out 0s; color: rgb(157, 29, 54); box-shadow: none; border-bottom: 1px dotted;">Islamophobia card.
This is how our supreme value of “tolerance” has taken us off kilter.
We have seen this in America in response to the blatant displays of anti-Semitism from Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. They have been handed a free pass from their own Democrat party.
If the Western world still has the will, they can call this out and stop it. If not, I will be changing my opinion. Because the one thing, unfortunately, that all those who exist on the extremes can agree on is hatred of Jews — historically and now.
Corbyn's bully boys: Trump supporter is viciously attacked and doused in milkshake by America-hating activists in London yelling 'Nazi scum' minutes after speech by left-wing UK opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn - but police watch and do NOTHING
Anti-Trump protesters viciously attacked a fan of the President with a milkshake in London today moments after Jeremy Corbyn's firebrand speech - and as organisers admitted the turnout fell well short of their hopes. In ugly scenes at Parliament Square, anti-Trump demonstrators chanted 'Nazi scum' at the man who insisted 'I'm here to stay' - before he was covered in a milkshake while a sole police officer tried to stop a brawl breaking out.
Today's vicious attack happened after Mr Corbyn delivered a firebrand speech to anti-Trump protesters in the capital this afternoon - obliquely accusing the President of 'creating a sense of hate' and fostering racism. The President hit back at Labour's leader just minutes later and revealed he had refused to meet Mr Corbyn, called him a 'negative force' in politics and dismissed claims 250,000 people would protest against him as 'fake news'. One protest group, the Trump Babysitters, admitted only a few tens of thousands of protesters were involved in the demonstrations.
