The Devastating Effects of Pollution in China



Brutal Jewish attacks on Arabs within Israel: Gang beatings on innocent Arab citizens while onlookers do nothing (And God takes note)


In March of last year a group of Beitar Jerusalem fans attacked Arab janitors in the Malcha Mall. It happened after a soccer game in the nearby Teddy Stadium. Last summer a group of teenagers nearly lynched an Arab youngster in Jerusalem's Zion Square. Since then we have witnessed a series of incidents in which young Jews brutally assaulted Arabs in a manner that is characteristic of societies in the process of dissolution.

Just recently an Arab woman was attacked at a Jerusalem Light Rail station by Jewish teenage girls. In the same week an Arab worker at a fast food restaurant in north Tel Aviv was attacked and said none of the patrons came to his help. An Arab who works for the Tel Aviv Municipality was also attacked recently.

Most curious part of the article:

"The State of Israel is a state that is obligated to a sacred legacy, according to which we are forbidden from doing to others what the bitter enemies of the Jewish nation did to our families. This means we will not attack innocent people just because we have the power to do so. We will not humiliate them or abuse them."

I suppose those in Gaza will have time to read this consoling anecdote once they're finished picking up the body parts and brains of their children scattered from Israeli bombs and snipers' bullets.

One again, God takes note.


Number Of U.S. Gun Makers Refusing Sales To Gov't In 'Firearms Equality Movement' Triples In Two Weeks

On February 22, "Right Views" reported that a growing number of firearm companies have suspended the sale of guns to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens' rights to own them.

In just two weeks, the number of companies participating in what has been named the "Firearms Equality Movement," has more than tripled from 34 companies to 118.

The Police Loophole lists every company and links to the statements that each has released regarding their new policies.

Wilson Combat, a custom pistol manufacturer located in Berryville, Arkansas, joined the movement on February 28 stating the following:

"Wilson Combat will no longer provide any products or services to any State Government imposing legislation that infringes on the second amendment rights of its law abiding citizens. This includes any Law Enforcement Department, Law Enforcement Officers, or any State Government Entity or Employee of such an entity. This also applies to any local municipality imposing such infringements."

China Says It Won’t Forsake North Korea, Despite Support for U.N. Sanctions

China’s foreign minister said Saturday that Beijing would not abandon North Korea, reiterating China’s longstanding position that dialogue, not sanctions, is the best way to persuade the North to abandon its nuclear weapons.

At a news conference during the National People’s Congress, the foreign minister, Yang Jiechi, suggested that Chinese support for tougher United Nations sanctions against North Korea should not be interpreted as a basic change in China’s attitude.

“We always believe that sanctions are not the end of the Security Council actions, nor are sanctions the fundamental way to resolve the relevant issues,” said Mr. Yang, who addressed foreign policy questions from Chinese and foreign reporters.

Learn from the East: Japanese students clean train carriage to spotless condition after using it on school trip, cleaning staff writes school letter of thanks


"As the students got off the train, they disposed of their garbage in a trash bag, returned the seats to their normal positions, straightened the covers on the headrests, and picked up the trash that was left on the floor. After collecting all the trash bags, they disposed of them in the trash cans at the station exit. At Kawakado school, including greeting etiquette, there are five targets that the students are taught.. However, the principal said: “We didn’t instruct the students to take the garbage home with them”."

Meet the Romanian gangs who are forcing German families out of their homes... and planning to soon head here to abuse our benefits

In the past 12 months, 400 Romanians and Bulgarians have moved into this block of 46 flats in Rheinhausen, a once-respectable suburb of the German city of Duisburg. Unable to work or speak German, and with the schools already full, the Romanians and Bulgarians congregate in their dozens outside the tower block each day. The neighbourhood is now a hotspot for crime and anti-social behaviour.

Abu Qatada Arrested For 'Breaching Bail'

Abu Qatada has been arrested for allegedly breaching his bail conditions, days ahead of a new Government attempt to have him deported.

The radical cleric, who has been convicted of terror charges in Jordan, was arrested by UK Border Agency officials on Friday following raids by the Metropolitan Police Service Counter Terrorism unit.

Searches at two residential homes and a business in northwest and west London began on Thursday, while a search on a third property in northwest London is ongoing, Scotland Yard said.

South Korea: Income Polarization Keeps Growing (A growing problem everywhere)


Income inequality in Korea is getting steadily worse. The numbers of the so-called working poor who earn less than W1 million (US$1=W1,090) a month and of high-wage workers who make more than W5 million a month are both rising rapidly, while the number of median-wage earners stagnates.

Statistics Korea on Wednesday said the total number of wage earners stood at 17.86 million as of the third quarter of last year, up 4.6 percent on-year. But 2.64 million earned less than W1 million a month, up 6.8 percent, while the number of those who made a lower-median W1 million rose just 1 percent.

Lee Joon-hyup of the Hyundai Research Institute said, "We need to check if employers who used to pay their staff more than W1 million a month are now paying them less."

ACLU Has Concerns Over Military Weapons Used By Local Police

The American Civil Liberties Union wants to know what kind of military weaponry and tactics are being turned over to local police by the Department of Defense and Homeland Security.

The ACLU feels the surplus equipment, things like flash-bang grenades, shock cuffs, and tracking devices that are being handed down, are leading to more aggressive policing, especially in poor neighborhoods and neighborhoods of color.

John Chasnoff with the ACLU of Eastern Missouri describes an incident that happened in Michigan. “A S.W.A.T. team threw flash-bang grenades into a house then, when the S.W.A.T. team rushed in, they got confused and ended up killing a young girl who was sleeping on a couch.”
