Gates of Vienna News Feed 8/6/2012

Gates of Vienna News Feed 8/6/2012Wade Michael Page, the white supremacist gunman who massacred six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin before being killed by police, had been known to federal authorities in the past for his skinhead associations. However, according to officials, nothing he had done warranted opening an full investigation into his activities.

In other news, NASA’s latest Mars rover, Curiosity, landed successfully on the Red Planet this morning. The car-sized mobile robot will now begin its search for evidence of life on Mars.

Krekar case
Bhatti shown out from the Oslo court today
- Krekar has paradise within him, and brings paradise wherever he goes, Arfan Bhatti explains

So how can he not support such a person, thinks Bhatti, who didn't stand up in court, thus showing lack of respect for the court.

Krekar is indicted, among other things, with death threats against former PM Kjell Magne Bondevik

Women as young as five are being harassed in public in Rangoon, Burma, a city where you can find halal shops everywhere..

Now the women's group Akhaya think they may have found a solution. Women blow their flute as soon as they feel the harassment. This will alarm the other bus passengers who can come to the women's rescue.

Norwegian Church Aid helps out with the flute project.

Something to think about also for Europe?

It was always on the cards that Africans or people from the Indian Sub-continent would come to compete in the Olympics and then disappear and become more or Britain's millions of illegal immigrants. All they have to do is get some dozy cow pregnant and they are here for life as they cannot be deported because of the European Court of Human Rights' ruling that they have a right to family life. Eventually Britain will have so many people in it that they will have to ration the air. If Edward Heath had not silenced Enoch Powell then our population could actually be falling by now towards its optimum of 30m. The quality of life would be fantastic. If those immigrants who had been here 1n 1968 had been encouraged to leave and we had introduced a very restrictive and rational immigration policy then the country would have been returning to the way it was in the time of the Venerable Bede. As it is we are now hurtling towards 80m and living in England will soon be like living in Hong Kong or Singapore. You can forget all that rural idyll 18th and 19th century poetry rubbish. Nobody in the country will have any idea of what you are talking about. Countryside? what's that, is it a roundabout on the motorway?
