Iraq's still rife with antisemitism

So much, in fact, that the family of the Iraqi contestant in the recent Miss Universe paegeant had to flee because of her friendship with the Israeli contestant:
Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, became friendly with fellow contestant Adar Gandelsman, the Israeli contestant in the Miss Universe International Beauty Pageant held in Las Vegas last month. They even posted pictures together on Instagram, wishing “love and peace” to all – but the reaction of Idan’s fellow countrymen has been anything but peaceful.

So many people posted comments that cursed her for this act that the 27-year-old beauty queen felt she had to defend herself, noting in another post that the picture only showed her desire for peace and “does not signal support for the government of Israel and does not mean I agree or accept its policies in the Arab homeland.” And she apologized to anyone who considered it “harmful to the Palestinian cause.” But, courageously, she did not remove the photo from her account.

Idan’s participation in the swimsuit competition of the event also aroused great anger, with her family actually leaving Baghdad temporarily after being threatened by their more conservative relatives after that preliminary round of the pageant. However, Miss Israel told Israeli TV Wednesday that Idan’s relatives have now been forced to leave Iraq because of the anger over their joint picture, as well as ones of her modeling in a bikini.

“The two of those things together caused a mess for her back home where people made threats against her and her family that if she didn’t return home and take down the photos, they would remove her (Miss Iraq) title, that they would kill her,” Adar Gandelsman said.
Because of this, she's practically living in the USA now, where she's studying as a musician. I do think she should've avoided bringing up the "palestinian cause" mainly because it won't mollify the monsters. And this reaction compounds the failure of the Bush/Obama administrations to change the cultural attitudes in Iraq even after Saddam Hussein was deposed, making the war in Iraq meaningless. If cultural/ideological beliefs aren't changed, then the problem only persists.

Satmar's overlord condemns recognition of Jerusalem, the Conservative Judaist movement defends

Two interesting contrasts in who abhors recognition of Jerusalem and who appreciates it. In the former category, we have the Satmar's head honcho, Aaron Teitelbaum:
The head of one of the two rival groups of the staunchly anti-Zionist Satmar Hassidic movement ripped into President Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital last week.

Satmar, known as one of the most dogmatically anti-Zionist Hassidic sects, refuses to recognize the State of Israel and calls on members living in Israel not to vote in national elections, even for haredi parties and not to accept any funding from the state, including National Insurance payments. Satmar, however, does care for the welfare of Jews and runs the free meals for those staying in hospitals for Shabbat to care for loved ones.

Speaking before thousands of his followers at a celebration on Saturday night at the New York Expo Center in the Bronx, the head of one of the two Satmar groups that split after the previous Grand Rabbi's death, Rebbe Aharon Teitelboim, said that Trump had no right to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"We declare in the name of haredi Judaism: Jerusalem, the holy city, will not be the capital of the Zionist state, even if the President of the United States says it is," said Teitelboim.
It figures he'd even speak even in the name of haredis who don't agree with him. He's once again proven the Satmar are the defect in Orthodoxy who're hell-bent on proving themselves the closest allies to Islamofascists. That's practically why they distort the whole meaning of Zionism, when it's just a synonym for patriotism.

In the latter category, we have the Conservative movement, who've supported Donald Trump's recognition:
The Conservative movement’s US, Israel and global branches have welcomed US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, while calling for progress in advancing a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The statement comes in contrast to the declaration of the Reform movement, which said the decision was “ill-timed” and would “exacerbate the conflict.” The Conservative movement highlighted this difference in its statement to the Hebrew press.

The statement, published by its constituent institutions on Thursday, said it was “pleased by Trump’s declaration, and expressed the hope that the process of transferring the US embassy to Jerusalem begins in the near future.

“The status of Jerusalem is a matter to be settled in direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. But in recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and planning to move the American embassy to a location under uncontested Israeli sovereignty, the US government acknowledges the age-old connection that Israel and the Jewish people maintain with the holy city,” read the statement authored by the Conservative movement’s Rabbinical Assembly, the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, Masorti Israel and Masorti Olami.
Though the leadership may hold onto positions you could disapprove of, their backing for Trump's declaration of recognition is a positive step, and helps set them apart from both the Satmar and the awful Reform movement, who've also unshockingly voiced their support for the PLO's demands. We certainly don't need those two, and it's funny they'd have such problems with each other when they share some common ground on the aspects of evil together.

Trump recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capitol

It's great to know that Donald Trump's announcing recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capitol. It's a very courageous move, and we cannot allow the PLO and other Islamic sources to dictate, or cause violence in revenge. Joel Pollak's explained why this is a big deal:
To understand why, it is important to understand the history of the city. The Old Testament describes in 2 Samuel 5 how King David conquered the city and made it his capital, over 3000 years ago. It later describes in 1 Kings 8 how David’s son, King Solomon, built the Holy Temple and installed the Ark of the Covenant there. Since then, Jews have always faced Jerusalem in their daily prayers. It is the center of the Jewish faith and the core of Jewish history.

The Bible also tells the story of how the Jews were exiled from Jerusalem by the Babylonians, and later returned to rebuild the Temple. Another exile happened after 70 A.D., when the Romans destroyed the Second Temple and the city itself. Still, many Jews remained, and Jews worldwide prayed for 2,000 years for a return to “Zion.” Jews have been the largest ethnic group in Jerusalem for nearly 200 years, and a majority since the mid-nineteenth century.

Jerusalem is also holy to Christians and to Muslims, though it is less central to either. And under Israeli sovereignty, all religions have enjoyed the freedom to worship at their respective holy sites. The Temple Mount — or Haram ash-Sharif, to Muslims — has only been closed when there are imminent security threats, as radicals have sometimes used that holy site to attack Jews worshipping at the Western Wall — the last remnant of the Temple — below.
Muslims turn towards Mecca when they pray their awful Religion of Peace. The only reason Jerusalem "means" something to them is when they want to delegitimize Israel and find ways to endanger it to terrorism.

I've just watched the televised broadcast from the White House where Trump has made the announcements. I'm glad that's been accomplished. And it looks like some African embassies are already willing to move their offices to Jerusalem. Unfortunately, as expected, there is Islamic hostility brewing, including Recep Erdogan's over in Turkey:
The spokesman for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said the U.S. was “plunging the region and the world into a fire with no end in sight.” He added that an emergency summit of Muslim nations under the auspices of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation has been scheduled for December 13 in Istanbul.
It's pretty clear the ummah's not going to accept, but then, they never have. Only when they abandon Islam will they hopefully accept what even they must surely realize is just.

For now, Trump's to be congratulated for the bold step he's taken in recognizing Jerusalem's validity as Israel's capitol.

Libyan mutawas shut down local comics convention

The Islamofascists are still prevailing in Libya, and one of their latest victims is a local comics convention:
An armed group in Libya has shut down a comic book convention in the capital Tripoli because it breached the country's "morals and modesty".

Special Deterrent Forces (SDF) said they had arrested organisers of the Comic Con convention.

It said on its Facebook page that photos published on social media from the convention caused "a widespread public outpouring of criticism".

The SDF is loyal to the UN-backed Government of National Accord.
Ah, is that the same UN whose staffers rejected Wonder Woman as a program mascot? And if the UN has nothing to say about the current case, that says all we need to know about what they really think of freedom for comics artwork any more than any other such subject.
Eyewitnesses quoted by the Libya Herald said that more than 20 people - including organisers, participants and visitors - were detained.

Six members of the main organizing committee are reported to be still under arrest.

Organisers of the fair told the newspaper they were shocked by the actions of the SDF, especially given they had obtained official permission to stage the event.

''Some of those who were [arrested were later] released had received a beating," an organiser told the Libya Herald.

"They were told that Libya is a Muslim country not a free/liberal country."
It's almost certain the US comics medium won't condemn these mutawas (Islamic morality enforcers) for suppressing the art form, thus beggaring belief why current contributors even bother to work in the medium at all. It's also not very surprising the Libyan Islamofascists who closed the convention didn't care about the permits given; they probably did it just so they could have an excuse to cause terrible experiences for everyone involved. And all the while, the comics medium's representatives in the USA have no concern, likely because it's not local conservatives who're causing problems.

Viktor Orban warns Soros network wants to create "mixed population" in Europe

One that'll only devastate the ethnic population. Breitbart reports:
Billionaire George Soros is trying to use mass immigration to dilute European ethnic cultures into one anonymous blend, according to Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.

Speaking on Hungarian radio Friday morning, the redoubtable prime minister denounced the campaign of the Soros-funded “Open Society” network to aggressively drive a pro-immigration agenda as a means to eradicate the cultures and Christian identity of European states.

“The Soros network has an extensive sphere of influence within the European Parliament and other EU bodies,” Orbán said, “and its aim is to build a Europe of mixed population and to condemn the Hungarian government for opposing their view on migration.”

Earlier this month, George Soros transferred $18 billion to his Open Society Foundations, his tool of choice for forging a brave new world without borders and without nations.

In his Friday interview, Orbán said that he had to fight tooth and nail during last week’s summit in Brussels against efforts to pass European policy that would jeopardize Hungary’s sovereignty. “There was a great deal of pressure on me to compromise on migration,” he said, but he held his ground.
The best way he can hold ground is to leave the EU altogether. It's what every sensible politician should do.

ISIS terrorist murders pedestrians and bicyclists in Manhattan with truck

A vehicular terrorist attack took place in New York City, committed by a terrorist who screamed a familiar call:
A man described by authorities as a terrorist drove a rented pickup truck down a crowded bicycle path in Lower Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon, killing at least eight people, police said — the first deaths from terrorism in New York since the World Trade Center attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

Two law enforcement sources close to the investigation identified the suspect as 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov, a native of Uzbekistan who moved to the U.S. in 2010.

The trail of destruction extended for nearly a mile, with crushed bicycles and clothing scattered along the popular path. The rampage also injured nearly a dozen people.

It came to an end when the truck crashed into a school bus and the assailant ran into the street, waving a pellet gun and a paintball gun before being shot by a police officer and taken into custody.

Saipov shouted “Allahu akbar,” which is Arabic for “God is great,” before being arrested, the law enforcement sources said.

[...] President Trump took to Twitter to address the attack, writing: “In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person. Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!”

He later tweeted: "I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!"

[...] Saipov’s homeland, the former Soviet republic of Uzbekistan, is not considered a major hotbed for terrorism. But several terrorist groups — including the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, Al Qaeda, Islamic State and the Islamic Jihad Union — have supporters there, according to the U.S. State Department.

In a 2015 case in Brooklyn, five men from Uzbekistan and one from neighboring Kazakhstan were charged by federal prosecutors with providing material support to Islamic State.

As night fell Tuesday, the investigation turned to New Jersey. Police blocked off a street in the city of Paterson, where Saipov had lived in an apartment. Investigators also visited a Passaic County Home Depot, where he rented the truck, according to multiple law enforcement sources.
Paterson has a significant number of Muslims living there, so no surprise he'd resided in that area when he came to the US. This is a terrible incident proving that Islamofascism is still a serious danger in north America.

That's why you can't just simply "accept" Islamization

Russia Today interviewed a French writer about a new book called "Partition", detailing how politicians practically accepted Islamofascism into the country, and the possibility that in the next decade, it'll become a new Lebanon:
In just a few years, Islamic suburbs of Paris will obey their own set of rules, they will have their own laws, their own principles, maybe even their own police. It is already the case, Alexandre Mendel, author of the book ‘Partition’ told RT.

Europe has been facing a large number of migrants coming from the war-torn countries in Africa and the Middle East. Today many are concerned about the Islamization of Europe and the failure of Muslims assimilating into their new countries.

RT met with a writer Alexandre Mendel, whose new book “Partition” is devoted to the Muslims' failure to integrate in France, and discussed the current situation in that country.

RT: Please start by describing for our readers your book.

Alexandre Mendel: My last book, 'Jihadist France,' was only about the French terrorists. ‘Partition’ is mainly about Islamization of France, about what’s going on in France, in schools, hospitals, at work, in sports clubs, etc. I am not talking this time about terrorism itself, but about the way France decided whether the French government - like it or not – collaborated and accepted some kind of arrangements with Islam. This is the main topic of the book. [...]

RT: What should be done to integrate people into society? Is it only a Muslim thing, or other groups, as well?

AM: In my book, I say that there is no solution, because it is too late; there won’t be any solution. You can’t send them back to their country - they are French - the French cannot send them back. What France will become in the next 10 or 20 years will be a kind of new Lebanon in some places in France.

For example, take some suburbs in Paris: they will have their own set of rules, they will have their own laws, their own principals, maybe even their own police. It is already the case. The fact that in France right now in many places France has no control in these areas. We accepted it already and we won’t fight back to get these suburbs back to France. It is already done – we already lost the war against them.

So the rich people in France will be in the fancy neighborhoods of Paris, far from the problems, and then the poor people will have to deal with Islamism on a daily base. This is the way we accepted that already.
Well that's why, no matter what anybody thinks, you cannot stand idly by and accept that barbarians are literally "citizens" in every way, shape and form and cannot be exiled for their evils. Geert Wilders made the point that we can't just simply accept and that's it; societies have to be de-islamized to make them safer again.

Jewish girl violently assaulted by Muslims at French school

One of the few Jewish students going to a public school where much of the students are Muslim fell victim to antisemitic violence (Hat tip: Pamela Geller):
A 10-year-old girl was assaulted by her classmates and the home of a family was daubed with racist graffiti in two Paris-area incidents deemed antisemitic.

The alleged assault was reported to France’s ministry of education by the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Antisemitism, or BNVCA, the watchdog group wrote in a statement on its website Tuesday. Separately, the same group reported that unidentified individuals on Wednesday wrote antisemitic slogans on the side of a home belonging to Jewish family in the eastern suburb of Noisy le Grand.

The mother of the girl who allegedly was assaulted, identified by BNVCA only as Ness, complained to police recently that a group of classmates of her daughter in the public school which she attends in Paris’ 18th district beat her on multiple occasions, often occurring day after day, only because she is Jewish. After one beating, Ness was brought to hospital with a visible contusion to her stomach and ribcage, the report said, requiring 10 days of recovery.

The child will be transferred to a different school, BNVCA wrote.
It's noted that some politicians are encouraging this sadism as well, by associating with jihadist sympathisers. Undoutably they are, and Jacques Chirac was one most recent politician in history who did, as did also Francois Hollande.

President Trump Pardons Sheriff Joe, Hero Who Cracked Down on Illegal Immigration

I met Sheriff Joe in Phoenix, Arizona, in 2010. Everybody loves Sheriff Joe. The only people who don't are the treasonous racist MSM fifth columnists out to destroy our great country!

I don't care what these leftist media hacks say. Sheriff Joe's a freakin' patriot.

Terrorist shot dead in Spain

One of the terrorists who plotted the van ramming attack in Barcelona was located by Spanish police and sent to hell where he belongs:
Spanish police on Monday shot dead Younes Abouyaaqoub, the suspected driver of a van that mowed down pedestrians in Barcelona, in a dramatic end to a massive manhunt for the Moroccan national who was wearing a fake suicide belt when he was killed.

"We confirm the death of Younes Abouyaaqoub shot in Subirats," police in Catalonia tweeted.

The Moroccan was the last remaining member of a 12-man cell suspected of plotting last week's deadly vehicle rampages in Barcelona and the seaside resort of Cambrils that were claimed by the Islamic State organisation (IS) -- its first in Spain.

Four men have been detained, while the others have been killed, either by police or in an explosion believed to have been accidentally detonated by the suspects themselves in their bomb factory in the seaside town of Alcanar.

Among those killed in the explosion was a Moroccan imam at the heart of the cell, Abdelbaki Es Satty, Catalan police chief Josep Lluis Trapero confirmed Monday.
Unfortunately, if they continue to allow Islamists into Europe, there'll still be many more to come. So they're going to have to start doing some serious thinking about their futures.

What could be the exact politics of Tim Seeley's "Brilliant Trash"?

The comics writer Tim Seeley's been interviewed by the Hollywood Reporter (via Science Fiction) about a bizarre comic he's written up called "Brilliant Trash", which features what appears to be a Muslim teen girl destroying Jerusalem, as seen in the panel posted on the side. This is what the trade paper says this about:
Brilliant Trash, co-created with artist Priscilla Petraites, begins with the destruction of Jerusalem at the hands of a superhuman teenage girl, which introduces a near-future dystopia in which anyone can be a superhero — but only one journalist knows how pricey a proposition that really is. Heat Vision talked briefly with Seeley about the new series.
From the looks of things, it would seem as though this story is about an Islamofascist who declared jihad on the historical Jewish city. The question, undoubtably, is whether it's depicted as an abominable, inhumane act. I should hope so. But according to the following statements from Seeley, this book is supposed to be satire:
The world of the series feels very much like it's prime satire, taking elements of today and ramping them up to 11: Journalists that no one believes! Fractured media that tells everyone what they want to hear! Conspiracy theories where corporations keep information from the people! Does this come from a love of satire, or a sense of "I have to write this now before reality eclipses me in a couple of days"?


It's both! But my favorite sci-fi has always been the material that takes current trends to a seemingly ridiculous satirical end, because those are the things that end up being accurate. We laughed at the ads in Robocop, but they mostly came true. As a person, I have to fight myself not to make fun of everything — but Brilliant Trash allows me to do it, and be absolutely savage about it.

As the solicitation for the first issue reveals, you're literally wiping Jerusalem off the face of the earth at the very start of this series. As far as opening gambits go, there's attention-grabbing and then there's attention-grabbing. Are you anticipating a lot of feedback on that particular plot point?

Ha, I never anticipate feedback, because I never know what's going to really sink in with readers. But there's very much a reasoning behind why Lady LastWord [the character responsible for the destruction of Jerusalem] does this, and we'll see that motivation unfold over the course of the first five issues.
I'm not sure what to make of a tale that's built on satire, considering the book involves a serious issue like religiously motivated assault and annihilation. After all, there's nothing funny in real life about jihadists who commit murder in high numbers. Yet we're living in an age when the industry has almost entirely censored the subject of fighting against Islamic terrorism, and if they do address it, they take blame-the-victim paths, as seen in the unreadable Marvel Knights volume of Captain America in the early 2000s. If Seeley's not playing his cards right, then he's only served up another letdown. Serious issues aren't something you should just present as satire.

Since we're on the subject of Seeley, here's a few tweets he wrote in the past week, giving an idea of where he stands on the political map, mostly to the left:


I'm guessing they're RINOs, right? That is, Republicans In Name Only. Among those he retweeted include Mitt Romney and John McCain, the latter who's opposed repairing the damage wrought by Obamacare. I can't say I'm shocked when some mega-leftie considers faux-conservatives the reliable bunch, but not those who actually care about the public's future.

Well my grandpa, who died in 1972, about 2 years before I was born, also fought in the second World War. And labels had nothing to do with it, just altruism, far more than Franklin Delano Roosevelt ever showed. So this is Seeley's way of saying he apparently buys into the notion that Antifa's really a heroic, patriotic movement, when in reality, they're as repellent as the white supremacists who littered up Charlottesville. Even some hardcore leftists admit Antifa's basically the same as those they're "protesting".

Well at least he's thanking Russia's government for wisely opposing any associations with supremacist news sources, where all their commentary is loathsome as can be. However, he also retweeted this post from Snopes, apparently claiming it's not true what Trump said about Gen. Pershing's war on Islam, hinting he's still part of the anti-Trump crowd. And I think he should ponder that Snopes, in reality, is one of the most dishonest leftist websites around. Definitely not a site I'd consider trustworthy.

Seeley may not be the worst liberal out there in the comics medium, but he may not be the best informed either. And based on what the news is telling about his new comics story, he may not have done a very good job addressing a serious topic. In that case, what would be so "brilliant" about the trash he conceived?

Anthony Scaramucci Unloads (VIDEO)

Here, "Anthony Scaramucci Unloads on Reince Priebus in Profanity-Laced Interview at the New Yorker":



So, a little while ago, I go to turn on the Diamondbacks at Cardinals on the MLB channel, and I get an error message saying the broadcast isn't available in my area (which is weird, since I live nowhere near St. Louis and the game wouldn't normally be blacked out). Okay, fine. It's happened before. I then go to click out of the channel and CNN pops up. My wife must have been watching it earlier, because I haven't watched CNN in months. It's four-o'clock and Erin Burnett's coming on with breaking news about Anthony Scaramucci. So I watched for a while. Then I click around the dial a little more and come back a few minutes later and she's got neocon never-Trumper Bill Kristol on. He's ranting about how unprecedented is this White House power struggle, even going so far as to suggest that Scaramucci's mentally unstable and should be denied an FBI security clearance. Then I flip over to Fox News. Martha MacCallum's got Dana Perino on. She argues that this kind of White House battle can only be decided by the president ultimately. Martha goes to a commercial and I flipped the off button.

At issue is this interview with Ryan Lizza, at the New Yorker, "Anthony Scaramucci Called Me to Unload About White House Leakers, Reince Priebus, and Steve Bannon" (via Memeorandum):
On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me.

“Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information. He responded by threatening to fire the entire White House communications staff. “What I’m going to do is, I will eliminate everyone in the comms team and we’ll start over,” he said. I laughed, not sure if he really believed that such a threat would convince a journalist to reveal a source. He continued to press me and complain about the staff he’s inherited in his new job. “I ask these guys not to leak anything and they can’t help themselves,” he said. “You’re an American citizen, this is a major catastrophe for the American country. So I’m asking you as an American patriot to give me a sense of who leaked it.”

In Scaramucci’s view, the fact that word of the dinner had reached a reporter was evidence that his rivals in the West Wing, particularly Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff, were plotting against him. While they have publicly maintained that there is no bad blood between them, Scaramucci and Priebus have been feuding for months. After the election, Trump asked Scaramucci to join his Administration, and Scaramucci sold his company, SkyBridge Capital, in anticipation of taking on a senior role. But Priebus didn’t want him in the White House, and successfully blocked him for being appointed to a job until last week, when Trump offered him the communications job over Priebus’s vehement objections. In response to Scaramucci’s appointment, Sean Spicer, an ally of Priebus’s, resigned his position as press secretary. And in an additional slight to Priebus, the White House’s official announcement of Scaramucci’s hiring noted that he would report directly to the President, rather than to the chief of staff.

Scaramucci’s first public appearance as communications director was a slick and conciliatory performance at the lectern in the White House briefing room last Friday. He suggested it was time for the White House to turn a page. But since then, he has become obsessed with leaks and threatened to fire staffers if he discovers that they have given unauthorized information to reporters. Michael Short, a White House press aide considered close to Priebus, resigned on Tuesday after Scaramucci publicly spoke about firing him. Meanwhile, several damaging stories about Scaramucci have appeared in the press, and he blamed Priebus for most of them. Now, he wanted to know whom I had been talking to about his dinner with the President. Scaramucci, who initiated the call, did not ask for the conversation to be off the record or on background...
More.

At one point Scaramucci calls Priebus a "fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac..." And of course, this has all the chattering-leftist mouths agape across the establishment. Keep in mind that leftists will play up any Oval Office flame-war to the hilt. If this is seen as weakening the effectiveness of the administration, all the better. And they're going to play it all the more, because Scaramucci's been kicking ass. He's been taking down the fake news memes on the cable broadcasts and forwarding an extremely on-point and effective message for the president. Leftist will exploit any angle to take him down, and by extension take down his boss, President Trump.

More at Memeorandum.

Everything is high drama. Scarmucci's high drama, but he's pissed at how the president's been getting reamed and he's serious about cleaning house. He's serious about take the battle to the fake news outlets. That's what leftists hate. Let's see how this goes over the next few days, because if Scaramucci starts winning some victories, leftists'll be even more freaked out. Knives are sharpening at this minute as it is.

MARINE LE PEN WINS 1ST PARLIAMENTARY ELECTION

She may have lost the presidential election, but for the first time, she's won a seat in France's National Assembly, and the Front National itself got nearly 10 percent of the vote:
Far-right leader Marine Le Pen on Sunday won a seat in the French parliament, but her anti-EU National Front (FN) party faced disappointment, winning only four to eight seats, polls and party figures said. The number of lawmakers, if confirmed, would be too small to form a parliamentary group which would give the FN a role in setting the agenda and win positions on committees.

Le Pen, 48, who lost her presidential bid to centrist Emmanuel Macron, triumphed in her northern fiefdom of Henin-Beaumont, a depressed former mining town, the town’s FN mayor Steeve Briois said.
Oh, I wouldn't be too sure the results wouldn't be enough to ensure she'll have some influence. After all, she's a beginner in politics, and this is her first actual election to parliament. Where she failed at presidency, she did succeed in making her way to parliament.

Though Emmanuel Macron's party won a huge amount of seats, it didn't get the vast majority the pollsters/media were predicting, and the French Republicains party got more than expected on their part. There's more about the election here.

In other good news, Meyer Habib was reelected to the Assembly. I'm hoping all of the relevant sources will do their best to make themselves heard on the case of Islamofascism devouring the country now, because that should be the most serious issue facing us all now.

'He's in Some Trouble': Donald Trump Says House Whip Steve Scalise's Condition is Worse Than People Think

Here, "Steve Scalise's Condition is Worse Than People Think."

From last night, from MedStar Washington Hospital Center:


Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip. The bullet travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding. He was transported in shock to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a Level I Trauma Center. He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding. He has received multiple units of blood transfusion. His condition is critical, and he will require additional operations. We will provide periodic updates.

50 YEARS SINCE JERUSALEM WAS REGAINED

Yesterday was Jerusalem Day, and the Jerusalem Post has a pictorial article about the 50th year since the city was freed from the clutches of Jordan:
Tens of thousands of Jews from all four corners of the world gathered in downtown Jerusalem on Wednesday to march in solidarity to the Western Wall, in the annual Jerusalem Day Flag Parade celebrating the 50th anniversary of the reunification of the capital following the Six Day War.

Under a cloudless, sunny sky – amid a pronounced police presence – Independence Park became a sea of blue and white, as thousands of yeshiva students draped in, and waving, Israeli flags danced shoulder to shoulder, their arms locked, while singing joyous Jewish hymns.

Across the road, near the US Consulate on Agron Street, thousands more men, women and children also proudly waved and wore flags, as a wall of 10-foot speakers mounted on the sidewalk blasted song after song, while police helicopters flew high above.

Talia Renner, 19, and Orly Grobeisen, 18, both members of Bnei Akiva, the world’s largest Zionist youth movement, flew to Israel from Mexico City, where they attended Jewish day schools, to participate in the procession to the Western Wall.

“Today is about celebrating that we are here and that the whole nation is united,” said Renner, as she waved a large Israeli flag. “We didn’t have a unified capital before, and now, for 50 years, we have the chance to be here celebrating on Jerusalem’s streets, and at one time we couldn’t.”
But now, we do. Though there's still the fact that some Arabic neighborhoods in the city are dangerous for Jews to enter, and that is bad. For now, it's good that we were able to reclaim the city from a Muslim regime that, despite signing a peace treaty with Israel, is still very hostile and may become more so again in the not too distant future.

And we also have to consider that as Europe stands now, it's become very dangerous thanks to the Islamofascism now infesting the continent, and if conquered by Islam, it'll be very bad for Israeli interests, as well as American ones.

On the positive side, I want to note that marching in crowds with flags is something a lot of countries can and should emulate, and hope that can be possible in the future, assuming they don't have a similar concept yet. The marches performed on Jerusalem Day are an excellent idea for other countries to work on too.

Also, since we're on the subject, the Jerusalem Post's also got an article about 50 paintings celebrating the city, by both domestic and foreign artists.
