Ilmar Reepalu's Malmo drives out the Jews.

Hate crimes of which the Jewish community are the principle victims have doubled over the last year forcing many Jews to leave. The extreme left wing mayor Ilmar Reepalu, who has described Israel as a "festering sore ", has not done anything to calm down the mainly Muslim perpetrators.
Talking of the incidents he said.
" I beleive these are anti-Israel attacks, connected to the war in Gaza. "
Well that's allright then.
The future?! For him the solution is simple.
" ... if Jews from the city want to move to Israel that is not a matter for Malmo. "
Of course not.
With Malmo's Muslim population now standing at 25% and rapidly increasing, Reepalu's future in office is safe.
Oh, and you probably don't either want to be a woman in Malmo which has helped put Sweden right up at the top of the European Rape League.
Some town!

The Scandal of British State Education.

As a physicist who taught physics in the dim and distant past, I thought I would check out its teaching now. Not great, to put it mildly. Here is a question from the British AQA examination board set in March 2009 in a GCSE physics exam. This exam is taken by 15-16 year olds. Could a physics question at this level be dumbed down any more? What could passing this "exam" possibly do other than prove a rather modest level of literacy? Was this question a warm up ? Something to give the poor dears a little confidence at the start ? In that case why not have something like this:

Q. When is there more sunlight ? Tick A or B.

A. At night.
B. During the day.

If the question was a warm up, things don't get much more challenging or to do with physics as you proceed through the paper. Here is the last half of the very last question.

You are allowed a calculator. Use it to multiply two numbers together. Well done!! You have now got a GCSE in physics. Congratulations.
The 13+ exam used for entry at ages 12/13 years into private secondary schools is of a higher standard than this. As a consequence, kids in the state system are 3 to 4 years behind those in the private system. They never catch up. This is the scandal of the education that Britain now gives the 95% or more of its children who cannot afford private education.

Pat Condell Lays into the Dutch Heresy Trial of Geert Wilders.

Wilders is being tried in Holland for offending Muslims. The fact that what he says about Islam is true is completely irrelevent as far this prosecution is concerned. By putting the telling of the truth on trial, this so called " court " is disgracing Holland. Apart from being a grotesque appeasement of Islam and a betrayal of free speech, i'ts intention is to weaken Wilders's current lead in the upcoming Dutch elections. Lets hope that it backfires.

Communist China needs to Behave.

The Communist Chinese dictatorship is well known for its brutishness. At home it glories in the highest capital punishment rate in the world, is in the process of making Tibetans a minority in their own country and has allowed a very small number of apparatchiks to live the lives of millionaires whilst the rest of the country flounders in relative squalor. Abroad, in the gravely mistaken belief that this will secure its energy requirements, it supports the genocidal Islamists of Khartoum and the lunatic ayatollahs of Teheran. Both these regimes will fall quite soon. When that happens, the people of the Sudan and Iran will not be remembering the supporters of their oppressors in a kindly light.
So what? Well its good to see Obama showing some backbone and giving self defence arms to the Taiwanese and also announcing that he will meet with the Dalai Lama. In a typical froth, the Communists have declared that these moves will not help US-Chinese relations. So what ? Exactly what have the Communist Chinese done for America? They have flooded the States with cheap goods putting millions out of work* and they have refused to put the slightest pressure on Teheran over its nuclear weapons programme.
The Chinese Communists need to aspire to a little bit of the intelligence and decency of the Dalai Lama. They need to behave.

*Before I get accused of holding a naive view of the imbalance of trade between the West and Communist China, lets remember that it is not a level playing field. Communist China is only able to undercut because ( i ) it has a savage control of its labour keeping wages down and making strikes illegal and ( ii ) it is totally unbridled when it comes to giving its manufacturers massive subsidies.
