Wouldn't want to cast a shadow on the narrative now, would we...

Police in Germany are covering up the extent of crime committed by migrants, claim Bild

Quote:
German officials have ordered a cover-up of crimes committed by migrants to prevent causing alarm, a local newspaper has claimed.

Asylum seekers are being recruited across the country as cheap drug dealers as well as petty thieves, says German newspaper, Bild - the biggest daily paper in the country.

The paper accused the police of covering up the extent of migrant crimes in order to stop concerns among the general population.

It also claimed asylum seekers were prepared to work for a few euros couriering drugs across the country and said they were being signed up almost as soon as they had registered as asylum seekers.

Isn't the problem here with the migrants in Germany and not the women? Hasn't the mayor got it backwards?

Christian girl killed for shrugging off advances of wealthy Muslim boys

Quote:
"Women have a low status in Pakistan, but none more so than Christian women who fidn themselves under the grip or terror, especially after this attack. Muslim NGO 'Movement of Solidarity and Peace' state that around 700 Christian women in Pakistan are abducted, raped and forced into Islamic marriage every year - that figure is almost two a day and the world does nothing. Evidence exists that some rogue imams declare that such acts of conversion through violence are rewarded in heaven, what a terrifying thought."
M'bold.

Interesting article on the effects of oil prices on OPEC budgets.

Low oil prices, budget deficits and OPEC

Quote:
In November 2014 the OPEC countries met in Vienna and agreed to keep pumping oil to maintain their market share rather than cut production to support the oil price. In a post written a month later I addressed the question of how these countries were positioned to withstand an extended period of low oil prices and high budget deficits. More than a year has now passed, so it’s time to take a look at how they have done so far and to see what their actions presage for the future.

On covering nude statues in Rome during a recent visit by Iranians.

When In Rome, Do As The Iranians Do?

Quote:
But, in fact, when Europeans visit Iran, they defer completely to Iranian sensibilities and when Iranians visit Europe, Europeans still defer to Iranian mores. Napoleon said that “A man who goes into a country must comply with the ceremonies in use there.” Seeing American and European women in head coverings in Iran and other Muslim countries goes over a lot better when their own civilizations don’t neglect their own cultural norms to please others. Civilizations that don’t respect their own religious and cultural views but cater to the religious views held by political and business interests abroad are both schizophrenic and dying. If our elites can’t even spread the message of tolerance for other cultures through diplomacy and business, we’re doomed.
M'bold.

Jeez... Rome is getting to be as bad as the USA, huh?

Justice Department covers partially nude statues

No longer will the attorney general be photographed in front of two partially nude statues in the Great Hall of the Department of Justice.

The department spent $8,000 on blue drapes that hide the two giant, aluminum art deco statues

* * *

ABC News reported that Attorney General John Ashcroft ordered the statues covered because he didn't like being photographed in front of them.

Since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, Ashcroft has been photographed several times in front of the female statue that represents the Spirit of Justice. The 10- to 12-foot statue has its arms raised and a toga draped over its body, but a single breast is completely exposed.

Tension on Streets of Crewe ‘Like Civil War’ After Migrant Kids Attack UK Schoolchildren

Quote:
Gangs of vigilantes have been roaming the streets of a northern British town for the last week following a violent attack on British children by Eastern European migrant kids at a local school. One resident has told Breitbart London “It’s been like civil war is breaking out, to be honest.”
Further:

Quote:
“I personally believe in diversity within a community being a good thing if we all tolerate each other. But if one group of immigrants is refusing to integrate with the established community then I’m sorry but they should be removed and returned to their original country.
M'bold.

No argument.

Those moderate Muslims...

Pakistan Bans Valentine’s Day as ‘Insult to Islam’

Quote:
Pakistani Minister for the Interior Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has ordered a ban on Valentine’s Day for the capital city of Islamabad, promising “strict action” against anyone caught engaged in outward celebration of the festivity.

Reports state the reason for the ban is that Muslim hardliners find the holiday to be an “insult to Islam,” and therefore, unworthy of a Muslim nation. In past years, the Islamist political party Jamaat-e-Islami had “disrupted” Valentine’s Day celebrations, but 2016 will be the first time that the celebration is officially banned.

Pakistan is not the only Muslim country cracking down on the Western—and originally Christian—feast day in commemoration of Saint Valentine.

As Breitbart reported Wednesday, the Indonesian city of Banda Aceh has also banned celebrations of Valentine’s Day, contending that the holiday violates Islamic law. The province of Aceh is the only region of the country ruled by Sharia law.

“Our society and the Muslim youth should certainly not be celebrating non-Islamic holidays,” declared Mayor Illiza Saaduddin Djamal. “The law says it is haram. The government is obliged to protect the public and younger generation from unlawful acts.
M'bold.

What kind of xenophobia is that...
