Despite an attempt by Western media outlets to present the recently captured individuals in eastern Ukraine as OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) observers, evidence has now emerged demonstrating yet again that the presentation provided by these outlets is actually quite far from the truth.
Indeed, those men captured by pro-Russian militias in East Ukraine are not OSCE observers at all, but were sent to Ukraine by NATO countries and OSCE member nations under the auspices of the Vienna Document on military transparency. This group included no OSCE monitors whatsoever.
Prominent counter-jihadis like Geert Wilders, Michael Savage, and Robert Spencer have the distinction of being banned from entry into the United Kingdom – and, now, Her Majesty’s Government, in its wisdom, has also banned two websites connected to me. It’s not quite the same, admittedly, and I am working to get this ban removed, but I also wear it as a perverse badge of honor given that government’s shameful record vis-à-vis Islamism.
Say you’re in the British Library, the national depository library and a government institution, roughly equivalent to the Library of Congress in the United States or the Bibliothèque nationale in France. Say you want to read what David Brog writes about declining Evangelical support for Israel in the latest Middle East Quarterly. You type in MEForum.org and get the following result:
Danish poet Yahya Hassan: “I’m so fucking angry at my parents’ generation!”
Since his rise to fame, Islamists have threatened to kill 18-year-old Danish poet Yahya Hassan. They are angered by the portrayals in his writing of his immigrant family background, which he describes as backwards, hypocritical and blinded by religion.
Yahya Hassan has only written one volume of poetry. It’s modern, free verse stuff that doesn’t rhyme, the kind of thing that usually no one reads. Yet these days when Yahya Hassan enters a room, even one at the publishing house that printed his poetry, first he has to wait for his two bodyguards to check the place out: Okay, no attackers here, you can go in.
Hassan is 18 years old. His self-titled book “Yahya Hassan” sold over 100,000 copies in Denmark within the space of just a few months. It also earned him over 30 serious death threats. Hassan, whose book is also being released in German translation and who is expected to make an appearance at the Leipzig Book Fair this week, lives in Copenhagen and is a Danish citizen, even if his name doesn’t sound like a typical Danish one. He’s not a big fan of the Danish government, though.
ISIS suicide bombers Fatih al Denmarki and Abdul Aziz al Uzbeki.
A Danish citizen and an Uzbek are among the 30 suicide bombers who were recognized by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham just two days ago. At least 24 of the 30 suicide bombers have last names that indicate they are from outside Iraq. The ISIS’ “North Baghdad division” publicized the 30 suicide bombers by posting a photograph and a brief description of their attacks on its Twitter feed. The suicide bombers executed their attacks between Sept. 11, 2013 and March 6, 2014, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which obtained the information.
The 30 suicide bombers were involved in massed assaults as well as individual attacks against the “North Baghdad Awakening,” police and army headquarters, and a prison. The attacks took place in Baghdad (including in Sadr City), Mashahada, Taji, and Tarmiyah. Among the attacks described is the Jan. 30, 2014 suicide assault on the Ministry of Transportation.
