Gates of Vienna News Feed 2/5/2012

Gates of Vienna News Feed 2/5/2012For several months the EU has been attempting to persuade China to purchase the debt of its member states, but the Chinese don’t seem very interested. Instead they are buying up European infrastructure, manufacturing facilities, and financial institutions — which are evidently more attractive as long-term investments.

In other news, more than thirty Christian guest workers in Saudi Arabia were arrested by the authorities for holding a prayer meeting. The offenders, both men and women, were rounded up, thrown into jail, stripped, and beaten for their blasphemous behavior.

Not all civilizations are equal
- Claude Gueant, Interior Minister, France

- The horror...!

Like socialist Sègolène Royal says, "We all, remember George Bush and the clash of civilizations"...

- Did she ever hear about Samuel Huntington?

- Was she mixing up with "You're either with us or you are with the terrorists"?
