China Shoots Starving North Koreans.

Chinese border guards have orders to shoot on sight any North Koreans trying to escape starvation by crossing into China. If these starving people do manage to get across the border and are later picked up they are returned to the tender mercies of the Dear Leader's regime. Two weeks ago, thirteen women and two men were publicly shot in the border town of Onseong for attempting to cross into China.
In the 1990s, millions of North Koreans died of hunger out of sight and out of mind. Now again, criminal governance and crop failures are about to reproduce a similar famine. The Chinese are the only ones to have any leverage over their southern neighbour and they will be rightly blamed for another monstrous disaster if they fail to act promptly.
Instead of machine gunning the victims of their grotesque client, the Chinese need to make sure that massive food relief is distributed to all the North Koreans. The Chinese will need to supervise this distribution and they need to get it under way now.
It would be nice to think that this time the Communist Chinese will act with firmness and humanity. Bearing in mind though the general selfish crude materialism and lack of a moral compass in China's foreign policy, the odds for the wretched North Koreans do not look very good.

Turkey Boots the Armenians, Again.

Recip "Democracy is the Bus to Islam *"Erdogan, Turkey's Prime Minister has declared that he will expel around 100,000 Armenian refugees. Why? Because more and more countries, not slimy Britain of course, have declared that the Turkish butchering of 1.5 million Armenians between 1915 and 1923 was an act of genocide. All perfectly logical; you kill as many as you can and when someone protests you have a go at those left in your power. At the same time Erdogan, pointedly turning his back on the West, is now cosying up to the Iran of the ayatollahs. Apart from building atomic weapons with which to annihilate Israel and anyone else who irritates, the ayatollahs have become major suppliers of ammo and IEDs for the Taliban to kill the wicked Americans and their allies who are daring to try and bring their sad country into the 20th century. How proud the Turks must be of their government!

*Erdogan is an Islamist who has been working hard to bury the secular constitution that Ataturk bequeathed Turkey. The idea is that you use democracy to install a full blown Islamic regime like that of Iran. Once that's done, God's rule will have come to earth. What need then for any more open elections ? Another version of the same thing is; one person, one vote, once.

Swedes Have Backbones; Shock Discovery!

To my utter amazement, the Swedes, who normally wallow like invertebrates in a swamp of appeasement when it comes to Islam, have responded with commendable firmness in the face of a conspiracy to kill cartoonist Lars Vilks. Lars Vilks mocked Mohamed by putting his head on the body of a dog. When a plot was uncovered with US citizen "Jihad Jane" Colleen LaRose as Vilks self appointed executioner, the Swedes suddenly discovered that they had a constitution that included the right to freedom of expression. The national broadcaster and three Swedish newspapers printed the cartoon in defence of this right. The newspapers were Sweden's largest circulation Dagens Nyheter and Expressen and, yes, Malmo's Sydsvenska Dagbladet. Maybe Malmo isn't such a total Islamist stronghold after all. Not yet.

Geert Wilders; A Victory for Secular and Civilised Europe.

The misogynist, intolerant and violent ideology of Islam has suffered a major set back in Holland. Vying for first place nationally in the Dutch polls with the Christian Democrats, Wilders's Freedom Party in local elections a few days ago, put up only two candidates for maximum effect and minimum campaigning.They won in Almere near Amsterdam with 22% and came second in the Hague.The Christian Democrat government collapsed over Afghanistan a week ago and in June national elections are expected to result in a new coalition that will include the Freedom Party. Adios Sharia and Islamic bullying! Wilders has stated that Muslims have nothing to fear provided they abide by the laws of the land.

Whilst welcoming this triumph for secularism and civilisation, I think Wilders needs to row back from wanting the Koran banned. The Koran is replete with odious passages but let the people find these themselves and draw their own conclusions. Banning the Koran would be as daft as banning Mein Kampf. It would also allow Muslims to caste themselves in one of their favourite roles; that of the poor, misunderstood and persecuted victims.

Shameless Saudi Arabia.

Being a woman in an Islamic state is not great, being one in Saudi Arabia is clearly a nightmare. When Sawsan Salim went to court to bring a case against two judges for years of sexual harrasment, a panel of judges, including the two against whom she was complaining, decided that there was no case to answer and because she had furthermore appeared in court without a male guardian she was the guilty party. Sentence; 300 lashes and 18 months in the slammer. Would there be much left of you to imprison after 300 lashes?
The misogyny and barbarism of Islam is something the West often chooses to ignore. It needs to be loudly denounced, stood up to and firmly put into the rubbish bin of history.
