Counter Jihad (UK) | FANTASTIC: Hungary erects another wall to defend its people

Hungary plans to build a second fence along its southern border to keep out “hundreds of thousands” of migrants who could swamp the country if Turkey’s fraught migrant deal with the European Union collapses.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban said the new fence, built alongside an existing one, would be stronger and more permanent and able to hold back a massive influx of people.

Building a more substantial barrier along the frontier with Serbia would be necessary if the agreement between Turkey and Brussels to clamp down on migration into Europe via the Balkans continues to unravel, the right-wing leader said.

Mr Orban threatened to stop migrants “by force” if he had to as he announced plans to deploy an extra 3,000 police officers to the border.

More than a million people crossed Europe last year – many passing through Hungary, which recorded the highest number of refugee arrivals per capita.

Hungary had 1,799 asylum applications per 100,000 of the local population in 2015, compared with 587 in Germany and 60 in the UK.

That flow has since been reduced to no more than a steady trickle but fears are growing that Turkey could be about to scupper the EU deal.

The Hungarian PM said: “Technical planning is under way to erect a massive defence system next to the existing line of defence which was built quickly.

“If it does not work with nice words, we will have to stop them with force, and we will do so.”

Under the existing deal, Turkey has agreed to help stem the tide of illegal migrants into the bloc in exchange for aid and visa-free travel for Turkish people.

However, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly said that European leaders are not living up to their side of the pact.

Prime ministers of Central European EU member states – the Visegrad countries – will meet in Warsaw later with German Chancellor Angela Merkel to discuss Brexit and the migrant crisis, among other pressing issues.

Hungary will hold a referendum on October 2 on whether to accept any future EU quota system for resettling migrants.

Fact-Check — Top 20 Lies in Hillary’s ‘Alt-Right’ Speech

by JOEL B. POLLAK

Andrew Breitbart would have been proud: on Thursday, his website became Hillary Clinton’s number one target.

In his book, Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World!, Andrew recalled how he warned the Tea Party what lay ahead for them: “I said that they’d be labeled racists and hate mongers and violent criminals, that they’d be depicted as the dregs of society, people to be excluded from dinner parties because of their made-up closet KKK status. They were about to be targeted.”

Andrew added: “They need to marginalize and demonize those that would stand up to their hardball, toxic, and antidemocratic tactics … But it won’t work. Given a fair hearing, given just the slightest exposure — and the American people will rise to the occasion. They see these tactics for what they are.”

Conservatives will never be “given” a fair hearing. But I made sure I was personally on hand in Reno to hear Hillary Clinton’s lies, wearing my Breitbart shirt.

Here are the 20 worst lies in her speech, in chronological order.

1. [Trump’s rhetoric] is like nothing we’ve heard before from a nominee for President of the United States. On the contrary, Barack Obama has specialized in divisive rhetoric, both as a candidate (“bitter clingers,” “typical white person“) and as president. And, of course, Hillary Clinton often uses racist language. In 2008, shepandered to “hard-working … white Americans”; in 2016, she borrows from Black Lives Matter, talking about “white privilege” and “systemic racism.”

2. He’s taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over one of America’s two major political parties. Donald Trump has nothing to do with hate groups, but a “radical fringe” has been in charge of the Democratic Party for a decade — and she was its first victim, in the 2008 primaries. Since then, the party’s leaders have embraced the Occupy Wall Street protests and the Black Lives Matter movement — which she still supports despite its incitement against police.

3. In just the past week, under the guise of “outreach” to African Americans, Trump has stood up in front of largely white audiences and described black communities in insulting and ignorant terms: “Poverty. Rejection. Horrible education. No housing. No homes. No ownership. Crime at levels nobody has seen… Right now, you walk down the street, you get shot.” Ironically, Clinton said that in front of a “largely white” audience in Reno. But consider what she is saying: if you speak honestly about problems in the black community, you are racist. That is how political correctness has imprisoned blacks for 50 years, ever since (Democrat) Pat Moynihan tried to talk about the crisis in the black family.

4. A man with a long history of racial discrimination. Trump has no history whatsoever of racial discrimination. At the Democratic National Convention last month, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley fled from the camera rather than cite one single example of anything Trump had said about black people, much less done. Clinton cited a handful of lawsuits by the Department of Justice — a department which recently tried suing Louisiana school districts for helping black students.

5. And let’s not forget Trump first gained political prominence leading the charge for the so-called “Birthers.” The “Birther” movement started among Hillary Clinton’s own supporters in 2008, encouraged by a candidate with a deliberate strategy of painting her opponent as not fully American. Her campaign also encouraged suspicions that Obama is a secret Muslim. If Trump is a racist for asking for Obama’s birth certificate, then Hillary Clinton is an even bigger racist than he.

6. In 2015, Trump launched his own campaign for President with another racist lie. He described Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals. Trump’s statement was over-broad, but he was not describing “immigrants.” He was describing illegal aliens. He did specifically add: “And some, I assume, are good people.” What the Clinton campaign does not want to acknowledge, in its push for open borders and total amnesty, is that some illegal aliens from Mexico do rape and murder.

7. This is someone who retweets white supremacists online. Trump is constantly on Twitter, and retweets many people. If he were interested in retweeting white supremacists, we would see many examples — not one or two inadvertent retweets among thousands. If you want to find extremism on Twitter, visit Hillary Clinton’s own Twitter feed, tweeting and retweeting Black Lives Matter. The day after police officers were murdered in Dallas, she was tweeting about white racism. Appalling.

8. His campaign famously posted an anti-Semitic image – a Star of David imposed over a sea of dollar bills – that first appeared on a white supremacist website. The Trump campaign didn’t realize the image was antisemitic, and did not know its origins. It changed the image after complaints. But look at the overt antisemitism in the Clinton campaign: a plan discussed by party officials to use Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ religion against him, for example, which Clinton never condemned.

9. When asked in a nationally televised interview whether he would disavow the support of David Duke, a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, Trump wouldn’t do it. Only later, again under mounting pressure, did he backtrack. What Clinton leaves out, of course, is that Trump had already denouncedDuke and the KKK several times — including the day before that CNN interview. She falsely paints his repeated denunciation, in the days after the interview, as backtracking.

10. Trump said thousands of American Muslims in New Jersey cheered the 9/11 attacks. They didn’t“Thousands” did not, but a handful did. Breitbart News didmuch of the legwork uncovering the truth behind what actually happened in New Jersey, and it was clear that a minority of American Muslims celebrated the attack. Clinton can barely bring herself even to acknowledge radical Islamic terror, so it is no surprise she would persist in her denial. But she has to lie in order to do so.

11. Just recently, Trump claimed President Obama founded ISIS. And then he repeated that nonsense over and over. This complaint might be taken seriously were it not a response to Clinton’s lie that Trump is the “recruiting sergeant” for ISIS. Trump’s claim that Obama (and Clinton) “founded” ISIS, by allowing a vacuum in Iraq, is an exaggeration of what happened, but Clinton’s claim that Americans are to blame for terror by criticizing Islam actually does the terrorists’ work for them.

12. It’s another reason why Donald Trump is simply temperamentally unfit to be President of the United States. This is a lie for the simple reason that it is what Democrats say about nearly every Republican presidential nominee, regardless. In 2008, Obama constantly claimed that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) lacked the temperament to be President of the United States.

13. And he’d ban Muslims around the world – 1.5 billion men, women, and children -from entering our country just because of their religion. Trump has since refined his policy to target immigrants and visitors from regions of the world (predominantly Musilm) where terrorism is a problem. But note that the reason for his policy is not because of religion itself, but rather because extremist members of that religion have a horrifyingly frequent habit of terrorism against innocent people.

14. “Hoist It High And Proud: The Confederate Flag Proclaims A Glorious Heritage.” Clinton singled out several Breitbart News headlines (among thousands) to claim that the site is racist. The irony of this particular headline, which comes from a guest op-ed, is that Clinton embraced the Confederate flag for decades — not just as First Lady of Arkansas, whose own state flag commemorates the Confederate flag (by her husband’sdecree), but later on the campaign trail in 2008.

15. Trump – the only Presidential candidate ever to get into a public feud with the Pope. Every Catholic Democratic presidential candidate who supports abortion is opposed to the Pope. In 2007, Pope Benedict XVI reiterated that politicians who support abortion should be denied communion. Pope Francis has softened that rhetoric but the conflict remains.

16. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, Breitbart embraces “ideas on the extremist fringe of the conservative right.”That is simply a lie, as anyone who reads Breitbart even occasionally would know. And the Southern Poverty Law Center has no credibility left — certainly since a would-be mass shooter used the center’s guide to “hate” groups to target the Family Research Council merely for supporting traditional marriage.

17. That one came shortly after the Charleston massacre, when Democrats and Republicans alike were doing everything they could to heal racial divides. Breitbart tried to enflame them further. On the contrary: as Democrats like Clinton were exploiting the Charleston attack to inflame racial division and push gun control, Breitbart News focused on healing. There are several examples, including Lee Stranahan’smoving account of the makeshift memorial in Charleston.

18. Just yesterday, one of Britain’s most prominent right-wing leaders, Nigel Farage, who stoked anti-immigrant sentiments to win the referendum on leaving the European Union, campaigned with Donald Trump in Mississippi.Here Clinton repeats one of the most frequent — and self-defeating — delusions of the anti-Brexit campaign. (Farage has already responded.) The majority of British voters are not bigots; they simply chose sovereignty over foreign bureaucracy.

19. Trump himself heaps praise on Putin and embrace pro-Russian policies. He talks casually of abandoning our NATO allies, recognizing Russia’s annexation of Crimea, and of giving the Kremlin a free hand in Eastern Europe more generally. How rich this is, coming from a former Secretary of State who championed the Russian “reset” and ensured, after a hefty donation to the Clinton Foundation, that a Russian firm controlled by Putin owned 20% of American uranium.

20. Parents and teachers are already worried about what they’re calling the “Trump Effect.” Bullying and harassment are on the rise in our schools, especially targeting students of color, Muslims, and immigrants. There is little evidence to support this claim. But Americans have been bullied — by the Obama administration, which unleashed the IRS on its political enemies, and accused opponents of the Iran deal of making “common cause” with the regime — attacks that Clinton supports.

KAP SLAP: WON’T STAND FOR ‘OPPRESSIVE’ NATIONAL ANTHEM

BY RICK WELLS

SANTA CLARA, Calif.San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has willingly immersed himself into controversy by refusing to stand for the playing of the national anthem in protest of what he deems are wrongdoings against African Americans and minorities in the United States.

His latest refusal to stand for the anthem — he has done this in at least one other preseason game — came before the 49ers‘ preseason loss to Green Bay at Levi’s Stadium on Friday night.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

The 49ers issued a statement about Kaepernick’s decision: “The national anthem is and always will be a special part of the pre-game ceremony. It is an opportunity to honor our country and reflect on the great liberties we are afforded as its citizens. In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose and participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem.”

The NFL also released a statement, obtained by NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport: “Players are encouraged but not required to stand during the playing of the national anthem.”

By taking a stand for civil rights, Kaepernick, 28, joins other athletes, like the NBA’s Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony and several WNBA players in using their platform and status to raise awareness to issues affecting minorities in the U.S.

However, refusal to support the American flag as a means to take a stand has brought incredible backlash before and likely will in this instance. The NBA’s Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf of the Denver Nuggets, formerly Chris Jackson before converting to Islam, refused to acknowledge the flag in protest, citing similar reasons as Kaepernick and saying that it conflicted with some of his Islamic beliefs.

Abdul-Rauf drew the ire of fans and was briefly suspended by the NBA before a compromise was worked out between the league and player, who eventually stood with his teammates and coaches at the playing of the national anthem.

Kaepernick said that he is aware of what he is doing and that he knows it will not sit well with a lot of people, including the 49ers. He said that he did not inform the club or anyone affiliated with the team of his intentions to protest the national anthem.

“This is not something that I am going to run by anybody,” he said. “I am not looking for approval. I have to stand up for people that are oppressed. … If they take football away, my endorsements from me, I know that I stood up for what is right.”

Kaepernick said that he has thought about going public with his feelings for a while but that “I felt that I needed to understand the situation better.”

He said that he has discussed his feelings with his family and, after months of witnessing some of the civil unrest in the U.S., decided to be more active and involved in rights for black people. Kaepernick, who is biracial, was adopted and raised by white parents and siblings.

Kaepernick’s Twitter feed is filled with civil rights messages.

The former Super Bowl starting quarterback’s decision to go public comes while he is fighting for his football life with the 49ers, who drafted him in the second round in 2011. He lost his starting job last season after being one of the most promising players in the NFL during his run under former coach Jim Harbaugh.

Over the past few months, his relationship with management has turned sour. He requested a trade last spring, which never came. He also has spent most of the offseason rehabilitating from operations to his left (non-throwing) shoulder, his hand and knee. His recovery left him unable to fully compete with Blaine Gabbert for months and has him seemingly in a bind to regain his starting job.

He made his preseason debut against the Packers and played in the second quarter, completing two of six passes for 14 yards. He looked as rusty as you’d expect from someone who has not played since last November.

Following the game, and without any knowledge of Kaepernick’s non-football behavior, coach Chip Kelly said that there has never been any discussion about cutting Kaepernick. Rapoport added Saturday that Kelly will make “football decisions” on Kaepernick, despite the quarterback’s comments.

NKorea Boasts: Can Now Nuke Mainland USA…

Christopher Woolf

North Korea says it launched a missile from a submarine. The country says the launch gives it a fully equipped nuclear attack capability and puts the U.S. mainland within striking distance. (Aug. 25) AP

The nation is celebrating its first successful test of a submarine-launched missile.

The country’s leader — Kim Jong Un — says the U.S. mainland is now within striking range of his nuclear weapons.

That sounds like a threat.

Joel Wit, a former U.S. nuclear negotiator with North Korea, says he’s concerned, but not worried. “Because — despite this success — we’re not within striking range of their nuclear weapons.”

The threat to the U.S. mainland does not yet exist; there’s no evidence North Korea has yet been able to miniaturize its nuclear weapons to fit into a warhead.

It’s also extremely unlikely they could get a submarine within range of the U.S. coast: The new North Korean missile only appears to have a range of about 600 miles. But Wit says there is cause for concern, “because this is just one more step in terms of steady progress that North Korea is making in building nuclear weapons and building missiles to deliver them.”

“I’m concerned, and I think it should be ongoing concern for everyone.” The biggest concern, says Wit, is that North Korea is working to develop a working Intercontinental Ballistic Missile, or ICBM. “If they get that thing working then they will be able to reach the United States, and that, of course, is a serious concern for all of us.”

He does not expect North Korea would use weapons like these aggressively, but he says they would seriously complicate relations. He says, for example, North Korea could threaten other countries in order to secure its objectives.

It could also complicate U.S. thinking when it comes to its assurances to allies like Japan and South Korea to defend them. Up to now, those promises were relatively simple, he says. But if North Korea could threaten the U.S. mainland, then that’s a whole different calculation.

Wit concludes, however, by saying he has some understanding of the North Korean concerns. The United States would like to see a unified Korea that’s democratic, “and if you’re North Korean, that would make you fairly nervous.”

Hypocrite Hillary Shows KKK Ad To Slam Trump

Hillary Clinton who was friends with KKK member Robert Byrd is trying to paint Trump as a racist white supremacist and tie him to the KKK.

RalphsDeadBunny2

I said all along that the Presidential election will be won on social media & the internet, just like Brexit. Due to social media & the internet we (the people) can directly challenge and counter MSM propaganda & lies, this was not possible 20 years ago when MSM ruled. That is why the globalists and elite are so fearful of the internet and why they will try to censor it. It’s too late for the elite now though, just as Briton’s opened their eyes and voted against the establishment, American’s, through social media & the internet, can see through the lies and corruption and have their eyes wide open. I hope & pray Trump wins, another Clinton in the White House will be a disaster for humanity and future generations. All the best from the UK.

Someone should make an ad about Hillary showing her older clips where she hates blacks and talks about deporting Mexicans.

Huma’s Islamic journal: Bill bombed Iraq to distract from Monica scandal…

Capture

An article in the Muslim journal where Huma Abedin was assistant editor claimed Bill Clinton bombed Saddam Hussein to deflect from his Monica Lewinsky affair.

The claim made made in an article published in the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, where Abedin was a member of the editorial board – the group of people who decide what is published in the academic journal.

It is the latest bombshell to emerge from the archives of the journal, whose editor-in-chief is Abedin’s mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, an academic in Saudi Arabia.

Abedin, who is not an academic, has been Hillary Clinton‘s closest aide since spending time as an intern at the White House, at exactly the time the Monica Lewinsky scandal was unfolding.

Capture

Strike: An Arleigh Burke-class destroyer launches a Tomahawk cruise missile as part of Operation Desert Fox – which Abedin’s journal says was ordered to distract from Bill Clinton’s scandals

Capture

Address: Bill Clinton used an Oval Office address to tell the nation of the airstrikes on the Saddam regime, to degrade his alleged ability to produce weapons of mass destruction

But the version of events published in her journal is one which is unlikely to be embraced by the presidential candidate, and especially not by Bill Clinton.

It is outlined in a provocative article published in 2002, and  headlined: ‘Arab/Muslim ‘Otherness’: The Role of Racial Constructions in the Gulf War and the Continuing Crisis with Iraq.’

The article was written by Sina Ali Muscati who was the time described as a ‘second year law student’ at the University of Ottawa. His academic credentials were not declared.

Key role: Huma Abedin, like her sister and brother, was a member of the editorial board of the journal and therefore responsible for selection what was published

Muscati wrote about the 1991 conflict and its aftermath, which saw Saddam Hussein remain in power throughout the 1990s, despite being bombed twice – in 1996 and in December 1998.

‘The crisis with Iraq has also probably benefited Clinton, serving as a good deterrent of attention from personal crises, such as his campaign funding scandals, legislative failures, or the Monica Lewinsky affair,’ he said.

‘By occasionally bombing Iraq in the name of humanity, at least, he has been able to look strong and presidential.’

Clinton’s bombing of Iraq in December 1998 was widely mocked as ‘Monica’s war’.

He ordered four days of strikes by bombers and cruise missiles at the height of his impeachment trial, brought in the wake of his admission that he had had a ‘not appropriate’ relationship with Monica Lewinsky.

The strikes – known as Operation Desert Fox- were ordered the day after the House of Representatives issued a report accusing the president of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ and ended on the day the articles of impeachment were passed.

Previous strikes in 1996, Operation Desert Strike, were ordered during a campaign finance scandal.

Among the other allegations leveled in the article are claims that the Gulf War of 1991 was driven by a desire for profits and political gain, with the U.S. government and media glossing over the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis who were ‘demonized’ and ‘characterized as subhuman’.

The article claimed that President George HW Bush, who ordered the invasion by a U.S.-led coalition force, saw his support rating jump nearly 90 per cent following the war. In fact he was voted out of office after his first term.

Same roles: Both Huma and her sister Heba Abedin were assistant editors at the journal, while their brother Hassan was associate editor.
At her side: Huma Abedin with Hillary Clinton. The journal, where hse was on the editorial board before she was appointed as Clinton’s top aide, has opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11

The 2002 article claimed that hundreds of thousands of Iraqis died ‘directly from the war, from subsequent civil strife, or from the American and British enforced UN sanctions’.

It goes on: ‘Following the Gulf War, Iraqi rebellions publicly urged by the then President [HW] George Bush, but which received no American support, led to tens of thousands more Iraqis killed or made homeless by their army, almost under the noses of retreating American troops.

‘Subsequent sanctions have led to even more Iraqi deaths, including over 600,000 Iraqi children alone.’

The journal article said that Iraqis were viewed with a ‘racist outlook’ and described in the media, by the U.S. government and military in terms including ‘cockroaches’ and ‘barbaric’, pitting Muslims and Arabs as evil against a humanitarian Western force.

The article also questioned the motives behind the 1991 Gulf War – suggesting that the real reason was to protect American access to Middle Eastern oil and not for the liberation of Kuwait, as the U.S. government had claimed.

The article also questioned the motives behind the 1991 Gulf War – suggesting that the real reason was to protect American access to Middle Eastern oil and not for the liberation of Kuwait, as the U.S. government had claimed.

‘Indeed, it seems that had Iraq not been an Arab and Muslim country occupying huge oil reserves, the Gulf War would have been unacceptable,’ it reads.

In the article’s view, ‘Saddam Hussein seems to have paid a great service to the West.’

‘Gulf oil reserves were brought under greater Western control, the glory of American military might was assured, lucrative arms sales increased, and Western leaders were popularized.

‘Moreover, the costs fell mainly on the Iraqi people, who were largely the ones to pay the price of blood.’

The article openly accused the U.S. of double standards in claiming that Saddam Hussein was a ‘brutal aggressor’ for invading its neighbors – while the U.S. had been condemned by the United Nations for its own invasions of Grenada and Panama in the 1980s.

‘In fact the Panama invasion claimed between 1000 and 4000 lives, making it even bloodier than Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait,’ according to the article.

The article also appeared to defend Saddam’s decision to invade: ‘Kuwait’s economic policies were far more damaging to Iraq than Panama’s were to the US.’

It also questioned why the U.S. ignored what it claimed was the historical conflict between Iraq and Kuwait to serve its own ends – and why America would take the side of Kuwait in the first place.

‘Another purported objective of the war, preserving peace and liberty in Kuwait, makes little sense. Kuwait is a dictatorship with a poor human rights record. It abolished its parliament shortly before the Iraqi invasion to become an absolute monarchy, leaving little freedom to defend there.’

The article also alleged further hypocrisy on the part of the U.S. and Israel who had focused on Arab/Muslim conflict when they ‘have done nothing’ to restore the Palestinian rights demanded by the UN Security Council.

It also criticized U.S. journalists who ‘frequently refer to occupied Palestinian land as ‘disputed’ territory, as US diplomats do’.

The article suggests that the American people were hoodwinked into supporting war with Iraq due to the media and were ‘convinced that Saddam Hussein posed a serious threat’.

At the time of publication, Abedin was an aide to Clinton, who was then the junior senator for New York.

That same year Clinton voted in favor of giving her husband’s successor, George W Bush, authority to declare war on Hussein. Clinton has also been consistently pro-Israel.

The journal is heavily associated with the Abedin family.

The editorial board – the group who decided on the contents – included Huma’s mother as editor-in-chief, her brother Hassan as associate editor and her sister Heba as another assistant editor.

 The Clinton campaign did not respond to a request for comment on Abedin’s role at the journal or whether she was paid for her position.

Huma Abedin was listed on the journal’s masthead for more than a decade after she joined Clinton’s team in 1996, rising from White House intern to one of the presidential nominee’s closest confidantes.

She is a likely pick for chief of staff in a Clinton administration.

Abedin, who is married to disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner, who is Jewish, has denied having a working role on the Journal of Minority Muslim Affairs.

Her name first appeared on the magazine in 1996 and was dropped in 2008 around the time she went to work for Clinton at the State Department.

‘My understanding is that her name was simply listed on the masthead in that period. She did not play a role in editing at the publication,‘ a Clinton spokesman told the New York Post earlier this week.

That claim appears contradicted by her presence on the editorial board. Abedin herself rarely makes public statements, although she used an interview with Vogue – whose editor Anna Wintour is a vocal Clinton supporter – to speak of her Muslim faith and fluency in Arabic.

The Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs’ contents often appear to be at odds Clinton’s avowed positions on feminism, homophobia and Middle Eastern policy.

An earlier article published in the academic Islamic journal also alleged that there were deep ties between the upper echelons of U.S. politics and pro-Israeli, Jewish-Americans, suggesting that Jewish people have been able to ‘work the system’ and are ‘greatly aided by the American memory of the Holocaust’ and Israel serving as America’s ally in the Middle East.

And in the wake of 9/11, Abedin’s mother, who has been accused of espousing the views of the Muslim Brotherhood through the publication, wrote an editorial suggesting that the U.S. bore responsibility for al-Qaeda‘s attack.

London’s Muslim Mayor Who Banned Bikini Ads Blasts France Burkini Ban

burkini

Here is an excellent example of Islamic thinking coupled with Islamic hypocrisy. The Muslim Mayor of London, who banned bikinis from transit advertisements, is in Paris blasting France’s ban of the deeply offensive, misogynist “burkini.”

The London Mayor called bikinis “body shaming,” but burkas and burkinis are really body shaming.

File this under the “hunchback who can’t see his own hunch.”

“London Mayor Sadiq Khan hits out at French burkini ban during Paris visit,” The Telegraph, August 25, 2016:

Sadiq Khan has hit out at France’s “burkini ban” as he travelled to Paris to discuss  integration with his French counterpart.

The Mayor of London’s insisted no one had the right to tell women what they should wear after French police made a woman remove her burkini on a Nice beach on Wednesday. 

The case has fuelled the debate over the Islamic swimsuit ban, which has been implemented by a number of towns around France in the wake of a wave of terrorist attacks.

Mr Khan told the London Evening Standard: “I’m quite firm on this. I don’t think anyone should tell women what they can and can’t wear. Full stop. It’s as simple as that.

“I don’t think it’s right. I’m not saying we’re perfect yet, but one of the joys of London is that we don’t simply tolerate difference, we respect it, we embrace it, and we celebrate it.”

The controversial ban is being met with resistance and will come before France’s highest administrative court today.

The Human Rights League (LDH) is appealing a decision by a lower court in Nice which upheld a ban on the outfit by the town of Villeneuve-Loubet.

Mr Khan dded: “We’ve got to make sure that we don’t inadvertently give the impression of being complacent or arrogant because things aren’t perfect in London. If we want to do integration better, we can’t stand still.”

Speaking in Paris this morning he vowed that ties between London and Paris will become closer than ever despite the UK’s Brexit vote.

He met with his Parisian counterpart Anne Hidalgo for talks on trade, security and measures to tackle air pollution.

Mr Khan insisted that the French community in London would “always be welcome” amid concerns about the status of European Union citizens in the UK following the referendum result.

Mr Khan said: “London and Paris are two of the greatest commercial and cultural cities in the world and we have much to gain from working even closer together post-referendum.

“We have a thriving French community in London, who make a massive contribution to the economy and the vibrancy of our city, and I want to reassure them that they’ll always be welcome.

“I’m here in Paris to make it clear that London is open – open to the world, open to trade, open for new business ventures and collaborations, open to new ideas, new talent and people.
