Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/24/2010

Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/24/2010The news feed is inexplicably light tonight. Perhaps most of our tipsters are on holiday along the Côte d’Azur…?

A member of the Liberal Party in Australia (which is conservative by American standards) got himself in trouble with the party for posting “anti-Islamic” sentiments on Facebook. The party responded by removing him as a candidate for a western Sydney parliamentary seat, replacing him with an immigrant from the Philippines. No Islamophobia allowed in Australia, not even in the Libs!

In other news, it has been revealed that the Conservative Party in the UK received major donations from two Palestinian millionaires who have ties with Libya. Go Tories!

Thanks to Barry Rubin, Fjordman, Gaia, Insubria, KGS, LS, Nilk, TB, and all the other tipsters who sent these in.

Commenters are advised to leave their comments at this post (rather than with the news articles) so that they are more easily accessible.

Baron, the ALP is the Australian Labor Party, which are the equivalent of the Dems. The Australian Liberal Party are known as the Libs. :)
