Swathes of the UK will be hit by severe gales and torrential downpours through the weekend as Lee and Maria deliver their assault.

Almost two months’ rain is forecast to drench Scotland, northern and southwestern England and western coasts on Sunday.

Government forecasters say severe weather could pose a “danger to life” and have issued alerts across parts of the country which are most at risk.

Both hurricanes have in the past 24 hours changed track in the Atlantic with the remains of Lee now set to hit Britain tomorrow night.

Northern and western regions are braced for severe-gale force winds and driving rain through the start of the weekend.

Hot on the heels of Lee, the remnants of Hurricane Maria will arrive on Sunday drumming up another bout of disruptive weather.

The main impact from Maria will be heavy rain with up to four inches forecast to fall across much of western Britain.

A Met Office severe weather warning has been issued spanning a slice of the UK from northwest Scotland down through Devon and Cornwall.

Spokeswoman Nicola Maxey said warm air associated with both hurricanes could push temperatures into the low 20Cs this weekend.

She said: “We initially thought Maria and Lee would interact with a third low pressure system south of Canada, this now is not likely happen.

“Instead, Lee is moving across the Atlantic and is degenerating; the remains will interact with a front crossing the UK on Friday night.

“We could see strong gale-force gusts hitting the western Isles into Saturday with heavy rain moving eastwards.

“Sunday will see more widespread rain and unsettled conditions as the remains of Maria arrive to the UK.

“Warm air will make it quite humid and we could see temperatures reach 21C (70F) in any sunshine over the weekend.”

Chief forecaster Andy Page said gusts could top 60mph from Saturday night while heavy rain threatens flooding.

Severe weather could trigger travel disruption due to waterlogged roads with problems expected on transport networks, he warned.

He said: “Spells of heavy rain are likely to reach western Britain later on Saturday and may become prolonged by the early hours of Sunday.

“Many places, particularly high ground will see 25 to 50 mm of rain, but where the rain becomes prolonged as much as 100 mm could fall over upland areas.

“Strong winds are likely at times, with gusts of 50-60 mph possible in some exposed coastal areas.”

Deep floodwater from relentless rainfall poses a “risk to life” while strong winds could topple trees and knock out power supplies, he added.

He said: “There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings and that some communities could become cut off by flooded roads.

“Where flooding occurs there is a slight chance of delays to train and bus services whilst spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

“There is a small chance of fast flowing water or deep floodwater causing danger to life.

“In addition, strong winds may be an additional hazard at times with a slight chance of trees falling, power cuts and loss of other services to homes and businesses.”

AccuWeather meteorologist Tyler Roys said torrential rainfall threatens further disruption into Monday morning.

He said: “Western parts of the United Kingdom will be at highest risk for flooding, especially in low-lying and poor drainage areas.

"Some locations could get more than three inches of rainfall through Monday.”

Outrage as Satanic Fashion Show Desecrates 1,000-Year-Old London Church
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 27, 2017 , 5:14 pm
“Like a gold ring in the snout of a pig Is a beautiful woman bereft of sense.” Proverbs 11:22 (The Israel Bible™️)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Capture-11.jpg
A fashion show in London last week left many aghast as it transformed an ancient and venerated church into a Satanically inspired display, with transvestite models dressed as the devil. Though the designer and fashionistas claim it was all in the name of art with no ill-will intended, the church has expressed its deepest regret.

Turkish designer Dilara Findikoglu’s collection was displayed in St. Andrew Holborn church in Central London as part of the Spring/Summer 2018 London Fashion Week. But rather than reflect or honor the setting, a 1,000-year old church, the show became a tribute to Satanism.

The apse of the church was decorated with a wild display of demonic imagery, including pentagrams, goatheads, inverted crosses, all-seeing eyes, and other occult symbols. The models, including at least one drag queen, were dressed as devils, with symbols used in devil worship and black magic designs drawn on their faces and bodies.

The designer is considered to be an up-and-coming star of the fashion world, with celebrities like Rihanna wearing

her latest styles. Findikoglu rejected criticism of her demonic display.

“The show I did has no religious, Illuminati, secret society meanings,” the 26-year-old told Dazed. “All the symbols I used were for positive purposes. I am a creative and I am not trying to offend anyone. I understand people can be sensitive, but I think all these hate emails and attacks I am getting from Christians show who really is wrong,” she said, adding, “If there is such a thing as right or wrong.”

Though the designer claimed that the show was not satanically inspired, the Diocese of London released a statement expressing regret for their decision to allow the fashion show to take place in the church.

“We took this booking in good faith and were not aware of the content or design before the show took place,” the statement read. “This was obviously a mistake, and the content of this show does not reflect the Christian faith of the Church. We will be looking at our booking processes going forward to ensure this does not happen again.”

Despite her claims to the contrary, religion (and anti-religion) have played a significant role in Findikoglu’s design career and personal life. Raised in a religious Muslim family, she admits to being driven by a negative perception of religion.

Dilara Findikoglu (Photo via Facebook)
When asked last year by i-D, a fashion site, what the inspiration was behind her collection, she stated that it was a desire to rebel against religion, equating organized religion with the worst form of terrorism facing the world today.
“It was about a new belief system that ignores the control imposed by religions and unifies people by its laws based on simple human acts,” she answered candidly. “This was a reaction to question fundamentalist constructs that is currently terrorizing the world.”
“I use a lot of religious iconography, or occult symbols, magic symbols,” she said, adding the disclaimer, “Even if I don’t believe in them.”
This aspect of her art comes from her childhood. Satanism was a hobby for the budding artist when she was growing up.
“I’m into parapsychology and all the occult and magic stuff, so when I was reading those books, [my parents] thought I was going to be a Satanist.”

A man has been arrested in Cardiff in connection with the Parsons Green attack.

The 20-year-old suspect was detained in a dawn raid under the Terrorism Act and taken into custody.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said the unidentified man had been arrested at around 6am and transported to a police station in south London.

“The arrests were carried out by officers from the Met's Counter Terrorism Command, supported by colleagues from the Welsh Extremism and Counter Terrorism Unit (WECTU) and South Wales Police,” he added.

“Officers are also carrying out a search at an address in Cardiff.”

He is the seventh person to be arrested in relation to the attempted bombing on 15 September.

Ahmed Hassan, an 18-year-old Iraqi refugee, has been charged with attempted murder and explosives offences over the attack.

He appeared in court on Friday and was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on 13 October.

Hassan, who lived with his foster parents in Sunbury-on-Thames, was arrested in Dover port the day after 30 people were injured by a “fireball” that ripped through a packed District Line train during rush hour.

Parsons Green: CCTV shows terror arrest in Newport
Two other men, aged 25 and 30, remain in custody after being arrested during raids by counter-terror police in Newport last week.

Three of those detained have been released without charge, including a 17-year-old boy who was arrested in Thornton Heath on Thursday.

Yahyah Farroukh, a 21-year-old Syrian refugee who had been fostered by the same couple as Hassan, was also freed with no further action alongside a 48-year-old man arrested in Newport.

Searches continue one Hassan’s former home in Surrey and one address in Cardiff, police said, with others in Surrey, Hounslow and Newport completed.

One of the men arrested has been identified as an Iraqi Kurd known locally as Bilal, with friends saying they “can't believe” he would be involved in the atrocity.

The 25-year-old painter and decorator used a Facebook account with the profile name Mahdi Rahimi, locals and friends confirmed.

One said the suspect, an Iranian Kurd, arrived in Newport in about 2009.

“He is a very good guy, I can't believe this,” one man said. “He is Kurdish, he describes terrorists like Isis as stupid.

“He is hard-working and helpful. He has painted a lot of the shops and houses round here.

“He used to walk past every day on his way to the mosque, he would come and shake my hand and say hello.”

The man said Bilal wanted to study at university but had not been able to as he was waiting for permanent residency in the UK, so was instead enrolled at a local college.

“Kurdish people know what Isis are doing, they are fighting them.”

A woman described Bilal as a “nice guy” who had condemned terrorism in discussions with her husband.

Police said magistrates granted them a warrant allowing the further detention of the 25-year-old and 30-year-old men until Tuesday.

Six injured in east London 'acid attack'

Six injured in east London 'acid attack'
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-41376150
24 September 2017
From the section London Share this with Facebook Share this with Twitter Share this with Messenger Share this
Media captionFootage of police and other emergency services around Stratford has been shared on social media
Six people have been injured in Stratford, east London, in a reported acid attack.
Police were called to Stratford Centre, opposite Westfield, just before 20:00 BST, following an "altercation" between two groups of males where a noxious substance was thrown.
Ambulance crews treated six males at the scene for their injuries, and three of them were taken to hospital.
A 15-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.
Those reported injured were believed to be in a number of different locations, sparking initial fears that people had been sprayed at random.

However the Met Police said those injured were connected to the initial attack.
Ch Supt Ade Adelekan said: "I would like to be very clear concerning this incident.
"What initially may have been perceived as a number of random attacks has, on closer inspection, been found to be one incident involving two groups of males."
No-one suffered life-threatening or life-changing injuries.
Witnesses at the scene said an argument had broken out among a group of people.
A man who gave his name as Hossen, an assistant manager at Burger King, said a victim had run into the fast food chain to "wash acid off his face".

The 28-year-old added: "There were cuts around his eyes and he was trying to chuck water into them."
Tahseen Taj lives in one of the buildings just opposite the shopping centre and was disturbed by the noise.
"I could hear a lot of ambulances and police from around 20:45, but also there's a West Ham match today; I thought it must be a football brawl," she said.
"But after some time it just increased and increased, and there were a lot of fire brigades and ambulances and police, and it was quite chaotic to be honest.
"I was quite worried."

One witness described seeing a young male victim screaming in pain as his friends shouted ‘it’s an acid attack, he’s burning!’, while others rushed to wash the substance from their skin.

The teenager was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.

Scotland Yard said the altercation happened just before 8pm on Saturday evening: ‘During this incident a noxious substance was thrown. When the liquid was thrown, both groups ran from the scene.’

Witness Imran Tahir Rizvi said he overheard the friends of one victim, aged 18 or 19, shouting about an ‘acid attack’, then saw a young man lying on the floor screaming of a burning pain.

‘[They were] screaming and shouting for help as he was feeling a burning sensation on his skin,’ he said. ‘His fellows were shouting at police for something. Initially people thought like it was a fight. But the guys (with) the victim started shouting “it’s an acid attack, he’s burning”.’

He also shot a video, which showed a man sitting on the station floor ‘crying [and] shouting in pain’ while surrounded by paramedics.

Monster 'Fatberg': 143 Tons of Grease and Garbage Clog UK Sewer
https://www.livescience.com/60391-fatberg-clogs-uk-sewer.html?utm_source=notification
By Mindy Weisberger, Senior Writer | September 12, 2017 03:33pm ET
Monster 'Fatberg': 143 Tons of Grease and Garbage Clog UK Sewer
What’s as hard as cement and is currently blocking 820 feet of sewer network in the U.K.? A disgusting mass of solid waste called a "fatberg."

Writer Neil Gaiman's 1997 urban fantasy novel "Neverwhere" imagined sewers underneath large cities as magical shadow worlds, each a home to a host of peculiar individuals and monstrous beasts. However, the reality of what lies below cities in their waste networks is much more disgusting, as a team of Thames Water engineers in the United Kingdom recently found out.

In a sewer region located about 11 feet (4 meters) under the Whitechapel neighborhood in London, workers are just beginning to dismantle an inanimate but uniquely revolting inhabitant — a vast and rock-solid plug of oily waste charmingly known as a "fatberg."

Composed of stinking garbage and grease and weighing in at 143 tons (130,000 kilograms), the Whitechapel fatberg sprawls for 820 feet (250 m) — about the length of two English football fields. This means the blob is more than twice as long as the nefarious iceberg responsible for sinking the Titanic, which was estimated to measure a mere 200 to 400 feet (61 to 122 m) long. [In Photos: The World's Grossest Things]

Remote inspections using CCTV cameras showed that sewer passages were blocked by the fatberg, according to a statement released by Thames Water, the agency directing the cleanup effort.

Removing the mountainous mass — a three-week project — requires a crew of eight people working seven days a week from 8 a.m. local time until 5 p.m. Workers will blast the 'berg with high-powered water jets to break it down, and then vacuum up the chunks — about 22 to 34 tons (30,844 to 19,958 kg) per shift — for removal to a recycling site, Thames Water representatives announced in the statement.

The enormous and slimy blockage built up over time, from grease and oils that were poured down sink drains, joining forces along the way with diapers, condoms, sanitary products, hand wipes and other waste that was flushed down toilets, Matt Rimmer, Thames Water's head of waste networks, said in the statement.

Once these gloppy discards found their way into the sewers, they accumulated and solidified into the consistency of concrete, Rimmer explained, describing the Whitechapel fatberg as "the biggest we've ever seen."

Because in case you were wondering — yes, there have been more.

A 15-ton (13,607 kg) fatberg made headlines in 2013, when it was discovered in a sewer serving the London suburb of Kingston. A supervisor for Thames Water said in a statement that while the agency had removed greater volumes of gloppy garbage from sewers previously, they'd never seen "a single congealed lump" this size.

The more recent — and bigger — Whitechapel fatberg far outweighs the Kingston glob, granting it the dubious honor of being the largest sewer-grown fatberg in British history, according to Thames Water.

Unlike icebergs, which emerge when large sections of ice calve from glaciers near the North and South poles, these greasy, monumental fatberg sewer plugs are formed by people — and only people can prevent fatbergs, Rimmer said in the statement.

"Everyone has a role to play. Yes, a lot of the fat comes from food outlets, but the wipes and sanitary items are far more likely to be from domestic properties. The sewers are not an abyss for household rubbish," Rimmer said.

UK Imam Tells Congregation to ‘Spill Blood’ and ‘Establish Law of Allah’
http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/09/12/uk-imam-tells-congregation-spill-blood-establish-law-allah/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_term=daily&utm_content=links&utm_campaign=20170912
more muslims than christiansRob Stothard/Getty Images
by LIAM DEACON12 Sep 20171,814
An imam preaching in a West Midlands mosque acted as a recruiter for Islamic State and told Muslims to “be ready to spill blood” and “establish the law of Allah over the necks of the people” including the Queen, a court has heard.
Kamran Sabir Hussain, 40, allegedly told up to 15 children and about 25 adults at the mosque in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, that martyrdom was the “supreme success”, greater than achievements at school or college, The Times reports.

He was caught after the mosque was infiltrated by an undercover police officer, who recorded 17 of the alleged hate preacher’s sermons, starting in June last year.

A jury at the Old Bailey heard that Mr. Hussain told one congregation: “Stand up and be ready to sacrifice, be ready to stand in the face of the elements of shaytan [Satan], be ready to spill blood and have your blood spilt.”

“Much of the context of Mr. Hussain’s sermons was unobjectionable,” Sarah Whitehouse, QC, for the prosecution, said. “Some of the sermons, however… moved into support and encouragement to those carrying out acts of terrorism.”

The under cover officer was know as ‘Qassim’ and maintained his cover. “Nobody knew he was a law enforcement officer and nobody knew he was recording the sermons,” added Ms. Whitehouse.

The preacher also claimed in one of his sermons that right wing, anti-Muslim groups were controlled by the government. “The kuffar [derogatory term for unbelievers] will attack you and kill you,” he added according to the Daily Mail.

In March last year, before his mosque was infiltrated, Mr. Hussain posted a “chilling message” in which he said that the “Khilafah” – a clear reference to the Islamic State – was “knocking on your door”.

He made another clear reference to Islamic State terrorists on the 5th of August last year, when he is claimed to have told his congregation that the “mujahideen” [holy warriors] will “take over a land”.

Adding: “They stand a black flag, and establish the law of Allah over the necks of the people, whether they like it or don’t like it” and “nobody – not the Queen, not the Prime Minister – can say that you are not allowed to establish the law of Allah.”

The preacher denies two charges of encouraging support for Islamic State and six of encouraging acts of terrorism. The trial continues.

MORE THAN HALF OF UK ARE “NON-RELIGIOUS”

More than Half of UK Are “Non-Religious”
For the first time, more than half of people in the UK do not identify as religious, a survey suggests. Last year 53% of people described themselves as having “no religion”, in a survey of 2,942 adults by the National Centre for Social Research. Among those aged between 18 and 25, the proportion was higher at

71%. The Bishop of Liverpool said God and the Church “remains relevant” and that saying “no religion was not the same as considered atheism”. The figures, shown to BBC Radio 5 live, reveal a downward trend for religious belief in the UK. When the national centre’s British Social Attitudes survey began in 1983, 31% of respondents said they had no religion.

For the first time, more than half of people in the UK do not identify as religious, a survey suggests.
Last year 53% of people described themselves as having "no religion", in a survey of 2,942 adults by the National Centre for Social Research.
Among those aged between 18 and 25, the proportion was higher at 71%.
The Bishop of Liverpool said God and the Church "remains relevant" and that saying "no religion was not the same as considered atheism".
The figures, shown to BBC Radio 5 live, reveal a downward trend for religious belief in the UK.
When the national centre's British Social Attitudes survey began in 1983, 31% of respondents said they had no religion.
A random sample of adults were involved in the latest survey and they were asked whether they regarded themselves as belonging to a particular religion.
Almost two in three 25 to 34 year olds said they were non-religious, while 75% of people aged 75 and over said they were religious.

Tamsin is not religious but attends a secular congregation
Tamsin, a 26-year-old travel journalist, goes to the Sunday Assembly, a secular congregation that meets in London every fortnight.
Speaking to 5 live's Rosanna Pound-Woods, she said: "I'm not religious at all. I like the fact that this is a way for community to come together, without having to be about religion."
At times in her life where religion might be important traditionally, like deaths or weddings, she said: "I turn to my friends and just tend to celebrate or commiserate together."

Synod debate: Justin Welby calls for "radical new inclusion"
Another member of the congregation, Mitsky, was raised as a Jain - an ancient Indian religion - but now considers himself more atheist.
"Most religions have good basic principles, but certain religions take them maybe in a different direction which I didn't really tend to agree with," the 38-year-old said.
"I was heavily involved in that community here in London and I do miss it, which is why I was looking for something else."
The latest figures show that for people who were born into a religious household, four in 10 are no longer religious.
The most dramatic decline is among those identifying as Anglican
The most dramatic reduction has been amongst those who identify as Anglican.
Some 15% of people in Britain considered themselves Anglican in 2016, half the proportion who said this in 2000, according to the survey.
Those identifying as Catholic has remained stable - at around one in 10 - over the past 30 years, while one in 20 people identify with non-Christian religions.
Roger Harding, from the National Centre for Social Research, said the figures should cause "all religious leaders to pause for thought".
"With falling numbers, some faith leaders might wonder whether they should be doing more to take their congregation's lead on adapting to how society is changing," he added.
'Continuing challenge'
The Bishop of Liverpool, the Rt Rev Paul Bayes, said the figures bring a "continuing challenge to the churches" in "a sceptical and plural world".
But he said people's hearts and minds remained "open".
"Saying 'no religion' is not the same as a considered atheism. People see the point of faith when they see the difference faith makes," he said.
"We need to keep finding ways to show and tell those who say they have 'no religion' that faith - faith in the God who loves them still - can make that life-transforming difference for them and for the world."
But the charity, Humanists UK, said the figures raise fresh questions about the place of churches in the running of state schools and their other state-funded privileges.
The charity's chief executive, Andrew Copson, said: "More generally, how can the Church of England remain in any meaningful sense the national legally established church, when it caters for such a small portion of the population?"

UK, European Anti-Terror Chiefs: Unprecedented Threat Level in Britain

The terror threat in the United Kingdom is at unprecedented levels, according to British and European experts charged with leading the fight against jihadis in Europe.

There are as many as 35,000 “radicals” in the UK, according to European counter-terrorism coordinator Gilles de Kerchove.
“Of these, 3,000 are worrying for MI5, and of those, 500 are under constant and special attention,” he said.
De Kerchove put the number of extremists in Europe in excess of 50,000.
“We must select those who are really worrying and the most dangerous, and they should be monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” he told El Mundo, a leading Spanish newspaper.

This rise in the threat level follows the order from ISIS for homegrown jihadis not to travel to Iraq and Syria but rather carry out attacks on home soil, said Security Minister Ben Wallace in an interview with Sky News.
Meanwhile, Max Hill, who advises the UK government on counter-terrorism issues, called for tougher sentencing including for the families and friends of terrorists who fail to pass on information to security authorities.

“With the benefit of experience and hindsight it may be the case that some offenses have insufficient discretionary maximum sentences, which should be reviewed,” Hill told the Press Association.
At the same time as these experts were speaking out against the threat, the British media reports Britain will allow in to the country an extremist Islamist preacher who called for the destruction of the UK.
The imam of Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque, Ekrima Sabri, is part of a delegation slated to visit the UK on September 11.

In a radio sermon in 2001 – the year of 9/11 – he called on “Allah, destroy the US, its helpers and its agents. Allah, destroy Britain, its helpers and its agents. Allah, prepare those who will unite the Muslims and march in the steps of Saladin.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third child, Kensington Palace has confirmed.

An official statement released today said: ‘Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child.

‘The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.

‘As with her previous two pregnancies, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

‘Her Royal Highness will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London today.

‘The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace.’

The couple already has two children, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2.

The announcement confirms predictions that William and Kate would have a third child.

On a royal tour of Poland in July 2017, The Duchess of Cambrudge joked about having a third – after being given a present designed for newborns.

When she was offered a cuddly toy designed to soothe tiny babies during an event for start-up tech companies in Warsaw she turned to the Duke, and said: ‘We will just have to have more babies.’

The news was announced as the royal couple were preparing to send their eldest child, Prince George, off to school for the first time.

They have chosen a fee-paying independent school in a south London borough for their four-year-old son.

Thomas’s Battersea will welcome the young prince and his parents on Thursday.

On Tuesday, Kate was due to join her husband and Prince Harry to visit the newly-established Royal Foundation Support4Grenfell Community Hub, which provides mental health resources for the children, young people and families affected by the Grenfell fire.

William, who quit his job as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance in July to become a full-time royal, is also due to attend the National Mental Health and Policing Conference in Oxford on Tuesday.

The couple’s third child will be born fifth in line to the throne, bumping uncle Harry out of the top five and into sixth place.

The Prince of Wales is first in line, followed by William, Prince George and the couple’s daughter Princess Charlotte, who is two.

British Teachers Telling Pupils: ‘There’s a Lot of Similarities Between Hitler and Trump’
http://conservativefighters.com/news/british-teachers-telling-pupils-theres-lot-similarities-hitler-trump/
A new Channel 4 documentary shows British teachers telling pupils there are “a lot of similarities between Hitler and Trump”, and suggesting the most important people to look after following the Manchester Arena terror bombing are Muslim pupils.

Harrop Fold School in Salford, Manchester, was formerly ranked one of the worst in Britain and is led by three brothers: Headteacher Drew Povey, Deputy Head Ross Povey, and Ben Povey on the Behaviour Team.

Channel 4 puts heavy emphasis on Middle Eastern migrant pupils in the film, particularly a Syrian boy named Rani, who is taken under the wing of a local boy named Jack.

Drew Povey notes that when he began working at the school 12 years ago, it was 99 per cent White British, but this is no longer the case — resulting in “challenges”.

Asked about the migrant influx, one young white pupil named Freya says: “They could be at war and they need to come over so they’ve got a safe place to be, but at the same time there’s not enough places to live in this part of the country for other people.”

One scene shows a woman who appears to be a teacher asking her class: “Hands up if you were born elsewhere?”

She goes on to say, “Just because some of us is an immigrant, I don’t get why people put a negative slant on it.”

Then after what appears to be an awkward cut in the film, she is shown telling the class: “There’s a lot of similarities between Hitler and Trump, yeah?”

“But Trump’s got better hair than him,” jokes a Czech pupil in response.

“Mmm, I don’t think he does,” huffs the teacher, unwilling to concede even this much to the U.S. president.

Some pupils at the school were at Manchester Arena when Salman Abedi, the son of a Libyan Islamist who came to Britain as a refugee, carried out a suicide bombing, killing 22 people and injuring many more.

One boy, who was there with his younger female cousin, breaks down in tears recounting how he escaped the blast.

The teachers then have an interesting discussion on what their priorities should be following the attack.

“It’s the support we give to our Muslim community in here as well, isn’t it, because they will be the ones that will be feeling hypersensitive,” says the headteacher.

“It’s about trying to get the kids to discuss people’s different cultural beliefs and backgrounds, and how these things are not directly linked to religions,” contributes an ethnic minority colleague.

The same colleague tells the filmmakers: “A lot of work needs to be done on how to deal with racial tension or people attacking other people’s religion since these bombings.”

He is not shown discussing the importance of watching out for signs of Islamic radicalisation.

Headteacher Povey appears to be on the same page: “We’ve got to deal with [Islamophobia] quickly as a school.”

The Muslim migrant pupils do not appear to be in much need of protection, however.

At a get together for foreign pupils, a Polish girl with relatively weak English is screamed at for being “a racist” by a Syrian asylum seeker who came to Britain by way of Cyprus, a safe country in the Mediterranean.

She is falsely accused of saying “they all look like terrorists” after questioning why Middle Eastern migrants have their fingerprints are taken by the Home Office.

She appears to receive no support from the teacher, who sides with the Middle Eastern pupils and privately advises her to watch what she says.

Later, a mature-looking pupil from Afghanistan is called ‘Osama’ as a joke by a white pupil, who he corners and manhandles outside the school building, threatening that he must never say anything like that to a Muslim.

The Syrian who earlier accused the Polish girl of racism explains to the filmmakers that migrants may joke among themselves about each other’s countries as friends, but if “outsiders” attempt to do so there is “a problem”.

Teachers speak to the Afghan briefly about keeping his cool and praise him as a lovely lad, whilst the pupil he became physical with is given an angry dressing down for his “unacceptable” comments by the headteacher.

Lesbian Couple Offended When Restaurant Labels ‘THIS’ on Their Receipt

A same-sex couple was outraged in Wales on Thursday when a restaurant labeled them “lesbians” on their receipt.

Belinda Mulcahy and Jo James were celebrating Belinda’s birthday at a restaurant in Northern Wales. The couple was sitting alone together and were outraged, when presented with a bill at the end of their meal, to find their server had labeled them “lesbians,” reported PinkNews.

Jo quickly took off her tool belt, tucked in her plaid shirt, and complained to management (okay that didn’t happen but it’s nice to believe.)

“Even though it’s true, they were outraged by it. Why on earth would they put on a receipt? I can’t imagine they’d write Jews or Blacks or even Disabled,” a friend of the couple said to Pink News.


“Belinda looked at me and she said, ‘Are you alright?’ I showed her and she was speechless,” James said to Diva Magazine. “We hadn’t done anything overt. We hadn’t been kissing at the bar or holding hands. We could have been friends. We could have been relations.”

“We could have been a whole host of things. So the fact he decided to identify us as lesbians was a bit horrifying,” she continued. “We were shocked at how stupid this man had been. I don’t know what upon earth possessed the staff member a) to write it and b) to hand me the receipt with it on.”

According to the restaurant, the staff member was verbally reprimanded and the ladies were offered complimentary drinks but they claim it’s not enough.

The restaurant clearly had very little experience handling lesbian outrage, the only appropriate retribution is either a gift card to Home Depot or tickets to some unfunny feminist comedienne like Ellen DeGeneres

RUMORS OF WAR: North Korea threatens Britain with ‘miserable end’ if it joins with US forces
AUGUST 25, 2017
Britain “faces a miserable end” if it takes part in US and South Korean military exercises, North Korea has warned, as tensions over the rogue state’s nuclear weapons continue to rise. The Ulchi Freedom Guardian drills began on Monday and run until the end of the month. Britain is not currently taking part in the military drills. Seoul and Washington say the
exercises are an opportunity for the allies to improve their defensive capabilities, but Pyongyang routinely denounces them as a dress rehearsal for war against North Korea. In a statement, North Korea’s official KCNA news agency denounced Washington and Seoul as “warmongers” and said the drills are proof of their intention to invade. It also branded its enemies as “war maniacs” and “dull immature infants.”

“The reality vividly shows that the US ambition for stifling the DPRK [North Korea] remains unchanged no matter how much water may flow under the bridge and the puppet group’s ambition for invading the North remains unchanged,” it said.

“We solemnly warn not only the US and puppet group, but also satellites, including the UK and Australia, which are taking advantage of the present war maneuvers against the north, that they would face a miserable end if they join in play with fire by tiger moths of war.”

The state-run media outlet dismissed South Korea’s insistence that the annual exercises are merely defensive, claiming: “Formations of strategic bombers loaded with nuclear bombs are always ready for sorties.”

Meanwhile, an editorial in the North Korean Rodong Sinmun newspaper said the joint military exercise is “the most explicit expression of hostility against us, and no one can guarantee that the exercise won’t evolve into actual fighting.”

It added that the exercise was like “pouring gasoline on fire and worsening the state of the [Korean] peninsula.”

US President Donald Trump © Carlos BarriaTrump warns North Korea new threats will be met with ‘fire & fury’
Washington and Pyongyang have traded a series of threats since Kim Jong-un’s hermit regime announced it is now capable of striking US territory with an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) carrying a nuclear warhead.

US President Donald Trump responded by promising “fire and fury” and warned his military is “locked and loaded.”

Britain, America’s top European ally, could formally refuse Trump’s call for help in waging a war against North Korea, as long as Kim does not strike Hawaii or the US mainland.

The UK’s membership of NATO does not automatically oblige it to participate in a conflict between the US and North Korea, even if the latter attacks military bases in the Pacific.

Although Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty states that an attack on one NATO member is an act of aggression against the entire military alliance, the application of this provision is limited only to attacks on member states’ territories in North America, Europe and the Atlantic.

Consequently, if Kim’s warheads strike US military bases in the Pacific, the US could ask for Britain’s assistance, but cannot formally compel the UK and other NATO allies to join the military efforts against North Korea.

The report adds: “If war did begin, the President would be on the phone to 10 Downing Street within an hour asking for support.

“Whitehall needs to be preparing now for a range of possible scenarios that could unfold in the coming months.

“Much would depend on how the war starts. North Korea, for example, might relate if the US shoots down a test missile being fired into the waters around Guam. Or it could interpret a massing of US forces on its border as the precursor for invasion.

“If it was clear that North Korea was responsible for initiating a conflict, it would be difficult for the UK not to provide strong political support for its closest ally.”

Reports from North Korea claimed Kim Jong-un had held meetings with his top aides to consider the ramifications of an intercontinental missile strike on the US territory of Guam.

Mr Trump said he would react with “fire and fury” at any attempts by North Korea to start a war, leading Pyongyang to declare it will wait for the “foolish Yankee’s” next move before deciding whether to fire a missile at Guam.

Mr Chalmers report admits Europe is as much under threat from North Korean missiles as the United States.

“London and Paris are around the same distance from North Korea as Los Angeles, as an ICBM flies,” it says.

The report reads: “If the conflict were seen as having been initiated by Trump, it would be difficult for the Government to secure a parliamentary majority to send UK military assets to Korea.

“Perhaps the most important UK contribution, if war does break out, might, therefore, have to be diplomatic.”

1. Without giving a reason, an Iranian court froze the assets of more than 150 current and former BBC staffers in Iran. See Reuters, and of course, the BBC, which condemned the order as a move to silence journalists.

Despite being banned in Iran, BBC Persian TV, radio and web content manages to reach some 13 million Iranians, according to the BBC.

2. A New York museum abruptly cancelled an event organized by Israel’s UN mission — a re-enactment of the 1947 UN’s vote which created the state of Israel.
A Queens Museum official said the board of directors didn’t want to hold what it called a “political event.” The Jerusalem Post reports Ambassador Danny Danon’s staff uncovered another facet to the cancellation — the museum’s President and Executive Director Laura Raicovich:

Following an investigation by Danon’s staff, it was found that Raicovich has an anti-Israel background: She is the editor of a book entitled “Assuming Boycott: Resistance, Agency and Cultural Production.” In its online description of the book, the publisher states that “Boycott and divestment are essential tools for activists around the globe.”

In the book, Raicovich included an essay entitled “Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: Reasons to Support BDS,” which justifies and endorses the movement’s actions against Israel.

Israel and the Palestinians
• The Times of Israel examines Sheikh Raed Salah’s role in spreading the myth that Israel endangers the Al-Aqsa mosque. Even Waqf officials seem powerless against the extremist sheikh.

The idea that “Al-Aqsa is in danger” is not new — it dates back to the 1920s, and continues to be propagated by all the major Palestinian political players including Hamas and Fatah. But experts interviewed by The Times of Israel said Salah has done more to spread and ostensibly legitimize the idea than any other person in history.
• Israeli security forces demolished the home of Omar al-Abed, who murdered Yossi, Haya and Elad Salomon in their Halamish home in July.

• Egypt opened the Rafah crossing with Gaza for the first time since May to allow Palestinian pilgrims to travel to Mecca.

Around the World
• Rare footage shows troops from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps fighting in close quarters combat in Syria against Islamic State fighters. More at Ynet.

• Alan Zimmerman describes a very chilling Shabbat experience at Charlottesville’s Congregation Beth Israel:

For half an hour, three men dressed in fatigues and armed with semi-automatic rifles stood across the street from the temple. Had they tried to enter, I don’t know what I could have done to stop them, but I couldn’t take my eyes off them, either. Perhaps the presence of our armed guard deterred them. Perhaps their presence was just a coincidence, and I’m paranoid. I don’t know.

Several times, parades of Nazis passed our building, shouting, “There’s the synagogue!” followed by chants of “Seig Heil” and other anti-Semitic language. Some carried flags with swastikas and other Nazi symbols . . .

Local police faced an unprecedented problem that day, but make no mistake, Jews are a specific target of these groups, and despite nods of understanding from officials about our concerns – and despite the fact that the mayor himself is Jewish – we were left to our own devices. The fact that a calamity did not befall the Jewish community of Charlottesville on Saturday was not thanks to our politicians, our police, or even our own efforts, but to the grace of God.

A 'British' ISIS fighter has proclaimed that the terrorist organisation are planning new attacks on the West in a chilling new video which has appeared online.
The short clip shows a young black man speaking directly to the camera, with what sounds like a British accent, warning of terrorist attacks in Italy and Turkey, threatening to 'slaughter' civilians in their own homes.
The video is believed to have been filmed in the Syrian city of Raqqa, Islamic State's self-declared 'capital', during the recent battles between ISIS jihadists and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The SDF, backed by a U.S.-led coalition are making headway in their campaign to re-take Raqqa from ISIS.
It shows the 'British' man walking up to the camera from his position next to a machine gun. 

The man, speaking with a British twang, addresses the U.S. President directly,  calling him 'the new pharaoh'.
'This is a message to the new pharaoh of today, Donald Trump! 
'You may have your eyes on Raqqa and Mosul but we have our eyes on Constantinople and Rome,' he adds, using the pre-20th Century name for the Turkish capital of Istanbul.

A Kurdish spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition said today that SDF fighters are on the verge of seizing full control of the southern neighborhoods of Raqqa, making 'consistent gains' every day.
The SDF launched the U.S.-backed campaign to seize Raqqa in early June,  with SDF fighter advancing from the east and the west now only separated by a few streets as fighting continued.
Full control of the southern districts would sever Islamic State's last remaining path to the Euphrates River which is to the south of the city.
'There is a fierce resistance from Daesh [ISIS], so we can't determine when exactly we'll take (full control). Around 90 percent of the southern neighborhoods are liberated,' the official added.
War: The video is believed to have been filmed in Raqqa, Syria, during recent battles between ISIS and the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, who are closing in on the terrorists +4

However, the civilians who remain in Raqqa - some 50,000 - are at great risk, The World Health Organisation has warned.
The UN agency said there are critical shortages of medical supplies in Raqqa, described the situation as 'particularly worrying' In an appeal for $20 million to respond to the crisis. 
'Raqqa's main hospital and many other health care facilities have closed due to airstrikes,' it said. 'The facilities that are still functioning face critical shortages of medicines, supplies and equipment.'
'Water and electricity are available only intermittently,' it said, adding that civilians were unable to move freely due to travel and security restrictions imposed by IS. 
Islamic State has lost large expanses of territory in Syria over the last year to separate campaigns waged by the SDF, the Russian-backed Syrian military, and Turkey-backed Syrian rebels.

After Initial Hesitation, London Mayor Calls to Blacklist Hezbollah
By JNS July 9, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“He that denounceth his friends for the sake of flattery, even the eyes of his children shall fail.” Job 17:5 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/sadiq-khan.jpg
London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who faced criticism last month over his hesitation to support designating all of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization, plans to write to U.K. Home Secretary Amber Rudd to urge her support in blacklisting the Lebanese group.

“I share the concerns of the Jewish community about support shown for Hezbollah, which is an illegal, proscribed and anti-Semitic organization,” Khan said, London’s Jewish Chronicle reported.

“Anti-Semitism or hate crime of any kind has no place in our city, where we don’t just tolerate diversity, we respect and celebrate it,” he added.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/7-LIBI-ShowSupport-Psalms-600WIDE.jpg
Khan had been criticized by London Assembly members for his refusal to commit to supporting a full blacklisting of Hezbollah, following the presence of Hezbollah flags during this year’s anti-Israel Al-Quds Day march in London.

London Assembly Member Andrew Boff had accused Khan of not doing his job, saying the mayor seems to be “avoiding saying, ‘Yes I’ll [confirm the designation with the home secretary].’”

The Board of Deputies of British Jews praised the London mayor for changing his stance, saying, “Hezbollah itself does not distinguish between its military and political wing, which is one and the same. The government urgently needs to follow the example of the USA, Canada and the Arab League by outlawing Hezbollah in its entirety.”

The U.S., the Netherlands, France and Canada all designate Hezbollah—in its entirely—as a terrorist organization. But the U.K., like many other European nations, only considers Hezbollah’s “military wing” to be a terror group.

GOOD NEWS FOR MAY TO BRING BACK TO BRITAIN
MP May & Pres Trum Deal Pro Brexit
G20 summit: Theresa May to meet Donald Trump for trade talks on final day of 'difficult' summit
http://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/g20-summit-theresa-may-to-meet-donald-trump-for-trade-talks-on-final-day-of-difficult-summit-a3583116.html

Theresa May is to meet Donald Trump to discuss a post-Brexit trade deal with the United States on the final day of the G20 summit.

The Prime Minister is expected to call on the US President to reconsider withdrawing the country from the Paris Agreement on climate change after two days of “very difficult” talks.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose country is hosting the summit in Hamburg, described the difficulty of the negotiations after disagreements on the Paris deal and Mr Trump’s position on free trade.

"The discussions are very difficult, I don't want to talk around that,” she said.

Mrs May is due to meet both Mr Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and is expected to tell both leaders Britain stands with them in the battle to quash the "growing threat" from North Korea following its increased programme of nuclear weapons testing.

Mrs May is holding early morning talks with Mr Trump in the margins of the gathering of world leaders which has been the target of protests in which almost 200 police officers have been injured.

As well as discussions on a possible future trading agreement with the US when Britain quits the European Union, the PM will raise the president's controversial decision to pull out of the international agreement on tackling climate change.

Mrs May said she hopes Mr Trump will take the US back into the Paris Agreement.

"I will be making that message. I will continue to give the message that the United Kingdom believes in the importance of the Paris Agreement," she told ITV.

The PM will meet Mr Abe on Saturday afternoon to talk about trade and will also offer Japan British help on counter-terrorism and cyber security when it hosts the rugby world cup in 2019 followed by the Olympics.

Mrs May is also holding one-to-one talks with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan to discuss ways to tackle the increasing numbers of Islamic State fighters leaving Syria across its border.

Chinese President Xi Jinping hailed a "golden era" of relations between China and the UK and said an increase in investment from his nation since the Brexit vote showed its confidence in Britain during a meeting with Mrs May on Friday evening.

It comes after the first day of the summit saw Mr Trump hold talks with Russian president Vladimir Putin, which Moscow described as "very constructive".

Newly elected French president Emmanuel Macron had earlier made his frustrations with his US counterpart clear in a private meeting of all the leaders when he hit out at Mr Trump's America first trade policy

Thousands of New Cases of FGM Reported in England

Newly released data shows that 5,391 new cases of female genital mutilation (FGM) were reported in England this year, reported the BBC.

The statistics were presented by the National Health Service.

As per a law in the UK, doctors, hospital and other medical practitioners are required to report new cases of FGM.

The majority of women who were reported were victims of the barbaric procedure as children living abroad.  One-third of the newly reported victims were born in Somalia. UK-born victims comprised 112 of the reported cases.

Any intentional altering or injuring of the female external genitalia for non-medical reasons is illegal in the UK. Violators can be punished with up to 14 years in prison.

In a statement by the NSPCC, the UK’s leading child charity reiterated, “FGM is child abuse. Despite being illegal for over 30 years, too many people are still being subjected to it and it is right that health services have started to properly record evidence of this horrendous practice.

“It takes courage to report concerns as many feel ashamed or worry they will betray friends and family. But we need to end the silence that surrounds FGM to better protect children.”

Most girls who have undergone FGM are cut between the ages of four and 12. The World Health

Teen Who Plotted to Bomb Elton John Concert Jailed for Life

BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Tuesday, July 4, 2017

Haroon Syed, 19,. (Photo: Metropolitan Police)
A West London teen has been sentenced to life imprisonment for a plot to carry out a terrorist attack to mark the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
Haroon Syed, 19, pleaded guilty to plotting to carry out the attack between April and September 2016. He will serve a minimum of 16 years and six months.

Syed was caught after he discussed his plans over social media with a man whom he believed was a fellow jihadi named Abu Yusuf, but who was actually an undercover intelligence officer working for the British spy agency MI5.

He tried to purchase weapons from the agent, according to secretly-recorded conversations.

“Two things” he told the man he believed to be Abu Yusuf. “Number one, machine gun and we need someone who can make a vest you know the dugma [button] one. So after some damage with machine gun then do itishadi [martyrdom] … that’s what I’m planning to do.”
He met with the agent in a coffee shop to finalize plans and gave him £150 to purchase a nail bomb.
“I was thinking of Oxford Street,” he said, according to the BBC. “If you put those things inside called nails, do you know what that is, nails? Those sharp things – lots of them inside. Good man, can’t wait akhi [brother]. If I go to prison, I go to prison. If I die, I die, you understand? I have got to get to Jannah [heaven].”
Syed admitted researching targets for the attack on the internet, including the busy London shopping hub of Oxford Street and an Elton John concert in Hyde Park.
Syed’s brother, Nadir Syed, was imprisoned last year for a plot to behead someone during Britain’s Remembrance Sunday. The court heard that his brother’s arrest was a trigger for his radicalization, according to The Guardian. They also heard how he had fallen under the influence of the Al-Muhajiroun group linked to radical preacher Anjem Choudary.
“Haroon Syed is clearly a danger to the public who was prepared to carry out indiscriminate attacks against innocent people,” Deb Walsh, deputy head of the Counter Terrorism Division, told reporters.

Preachers Acquitted of UK ‘Crime & Disorder Act’ Charges Over Public Offense at Exclusivity of Gospel
By Heather Clark on June 29, 20176 Comments
Photo Credit: Facebook
BRISTOL, U.K. — Two preachers who had been found guilty earlier this year of “intentionally alarming” the public with their open-air preaching have now been acquitted in a UK appeals court.
“We hope and pray that today’s ruling will be an encouragement to Christians across the nation to continue preaching the good news,” defendant Michael Overd said in a statement on Thursday.
As previously reported, Michael Overd and Michael Stockwell had been charged by British officials last July with violating the Crime and Disorder Act of 1998, in allegedly using “threatening or abusive words or behavior or disorderly behavior within the hearing or sight of a person likely to be caused harassment, alarm or distress.” The statute specifically hones in on offenses that are “religiously motivated.”
Overd and Stockwell, along with Adrian Clark and Don Karns, had been taking turns open air preaching outside of the Bristol shopping center on July 6, as well as engaging passersby in conversation and/or holding gospel signs.
Two of those involved in the evangelism effort, Stockwell and Karns, were American citizens visiting the country to share the gospel. The men allegedly preached on a variety of issues, and took questions from those who stopped to listen—questions that ranged from Islam, Buddhism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuality and other moral and religious issues.
Police stated that some became offended by the men’s preaching and/or responses to the questions, as statements reportedly included remarks such as “Allah is the greatest deceiver—that’s in the Koran,” “David Cameron is no more a Christian than my dogs” and that false religion leads men to “the gates and the very depth of Hell.”
An online video shows the moment the men were arrested.
“The purpose of mankind is to worship God and enjoy Him,” declared Overd, who was preaching at the time. “You need to obey God and obey His commands. I hated His commands once and I remember what that mind frame is—it is like banging your head against a brick wall.”
Seconds later, Overd was approached by a police officer, who ordered him to leave the area.
“Look, you are causing a disturbance now,” the officer stated. “You are not welcome.”
“Go home! Go home!” a few men nearby chanted.
The officer warned that if Overd did not stop preaching, he would be arrested.
“For God so loved the world, guys, that He gave His only begotten…” Overd declared, advising that he was not going to leave.
The officer consequently grabbed Overd by the arm while he was speaking and pulled him away. The crowd clapped and cheered enthusiastically.
“There’s a line of freedom of speech,” the officer told Overd. “[I]t’s when you’re causing a disturbance, that is, aggravating people, anti-social behavior, which you were causing.”
“How were we causing it?” Overd asked. “What did we say?”
“People were getting angry. You were challenging [homosexuality]. You were challenging Muslims,” the officer replied.
“But just saying what the Bible says,” Overd noted.
“That’s fine,” the officer said.
“Well, if it’s fine, why are you arresting me?” Overd asked.
Stockwell, Karns and Clark were also arrested, but the charge against Karns was later dropped and the charge against Clark was dismissed last week at trial.
In February, Justices Robert Stacey, Gerry McDermot and Josephine Ramsden declared Overd and Stockwell guilty of violating the Crime and Disorder Act, and fined them nearly $2,500 each.
During the trial, prosecutor Ian Jackson argued before the court that preaching that Jesus is the only way to God “cannot be a truth” and that some passages of the Bible are not acceptable for 2016.
“To say to someone that Jesus is the only God is not a matter of truth. To the extent that they are saying that the only way to God is through Jesus, that cannot be a truth,” he declared, according to a press release issued by the Christian Legal Centre.
He contended that Stockwell and Overd had crossed the line by stating that those not following Christ are on the broad path to destruction.
“[Stockwell preached that] people were on their way to Hell because of their failure to adopt the worldview of Christianity,” Jackson told the court.
“If you are trying to come through Catholicism, through Jehovah Witness, through Mormonism, the Bible says you’re a thief and a liar, and a thief comes to steal and destroy. But Christ came that we may have life,” Stockwell had explained during the outreach.
Jackson said that it was also wrong for the preachers to include homosexuals in a list of sinners that included drunkards and thieves, contending that doing so “must be considered to be abusive and is a criminal matter.”
But attorney Michael Phillips of the Christian Legal Centre noted to the court that the men were simply citing 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, which reads, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived: Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”
The Daily Mail reported that Jackson “told the court some of the statements made by the preachers may have been in the King James Bible, translated in 1611, but that did not mean they were acceptable in 2016.”
During this week’s appeal hearing, which lasted two days before the Bristol Crown Court, Standing Counsel Paul Diamond told those gathered that there is no right not to be exposed to ideas that one disagrees with and that passersby can simply continue walking if they do not wish to hear certain messages.
Stockwell and Overd also shared with those present that their motivation is only to share the gospel.
Judge Martin Picton, who was joined by two other appeals court judges, subsequently ruled that the prosecution could not sufficiently prove that the men were motivated by animus toward any people group.
“We conclude Mr. Stockwell did no more than express his no doubt sincerely held religious beliefs as he was entitled to do,” he said, according to the Bristol Post.
Stockwell and Overd expressed relief over their exoneration, as well as concern regarding the infringement of free speech rights in Britain.
“Our motivation for public preaching is love. We want people to have access to the good news about Jesus Christ,” Stockwell said in a statement. “When we were convicted of public order offenses in February, I was shocked that God’s message of love is now considered by some to be hateful and dangerous.”
“Freedom of speech is under increasing assault in this nation. People should be free to express their beliefs in public, without risk of harm, violence or other repercussions. That’s why today’s result is such a great victory,” he said.

Theresa May just received some very, very bad news. And it will take a small miracle for her to survive it
JULY 3RD, 2017  Tracy Keeling TRACY KEELING UK
Share Using Facebook Twitter
Theresa May just received some very, very bad news. And it will take a small miracle for her to survive itUK
The high court has now granted rights group Liberty permission to bring a legal challenge against the British government. The case will contest one of Theresa May’s flagship policies as Home Secretary, the Investigatory Powers (IP) Act; commonly known as the Snoopers’ Charter.

If the challenge is successful, it will take a small miracle for May to survive as Prime Minister. Because she’s largely responsible for the extreme law’s existence.

Liberty’s legal action would see a number of the mass surveillance elements of the act put in the dock. The high court’s decision also came as a swathe of rights advocacy groups and individuals wrote to the Tory government urging it not to sacrifice citizens’ security in its increasingly draconian anti-terrorism policies.

‘See you in court’

The IP Act essentially removes UK citizens’ right to privacy. It forces internet service providers (ISPs) to store a record of our emails, phone calls, texts and web browsing activity. And a long list of officials are able to access those records. It also allows our security services to hack devices, and legitimises their own collection of our data in bulk.

It is an act that codifies George Orwell’s 1984 into law. While you don’t see Big Brother beamed through your television screen like in that book, make no mistake, he is there. In fact, he’s everywhere.

Liberty announced its victory against the act on 30 June. The group’s director Martha Spurrier said:

We’re delighted to have been granted permission to challenge this authoritarian surveillance regime.

The Government doesn’t need to spy on the entire population to fight terrorism. All that does is undermine the very rights, freedoms and democracy terrorists seek to destroy.

If they truly want to keep us safe and protect our cybersecurity, they urgently need to face up to reality and focus on closely monitoring those who pose a serious threat.
Next steps

The group has now applied for a cost-capping order for the case; this would set an upper limit to costs. If granted, the case will then be listed for a full hearing. It will challenge four elements of the act:

The mass collection of everybody’s communications data and internet history; web browsing and the who, what, when and where of our communications.
State acquisition of bulk personal datasets; the electronic records of our lives, such as medical and financial records, where we travel, what we watch, and how we communicate.
The bulk interception and acquisition of communications content; access to the content of emails, calls, messages without suspicion of criminality.
Bulk and ‘thematic’ hacking by state agencies; covert access, control and altering of our electronic devices by authorities.
Meanwhile, 83 organisations and individuals sent a letter to five governments, including the UK. These governments are all members of the ‘Five Eyes’ alliance, a surveillance partnership between the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

The letter urged ‘Five Eyes’ countries to support stronger encryption, not attempt to weaken it. The UK government has, however, regularly called for the state to be given access to encrypted communications following recent terrorist attacks in the country. But in the letter, the rights groups and individuals argue:

While the challenges of modern day security are real, such proposals threaten the integrity and security of general purpose communications tools relied upon by international commerce, the free press, governments, human rights advocates, and individuals around the world.
Legacy

May’s government has found itself inside a courtroom over its spying before. In October 2016, the Investigatory Powers Tribunal ruled that the UK government had broken its own spying laws for 17 years; while in December 2016 the EU Court of Justice found that the UK was breaking the law in its indiscriminate collection of people’s information. And rights groups brought another case in October 2016 at the European Court of Human Rights.

Now, the UK government is on course to face questions over its spying in its own high court. If, that is, Liberty manages to secure a costs cap and raise the money needed for the case. Let’s hope it succeeds. Because these groups believe this draconian law is harmful to the security services’ ability to combat terrorism. And they believe it is harmful to the fundamental rights of people in the UK.

In short, they argue that the IP Act is drowning those tasked with protecting us in too much information, while leaving the people with a drought of rights. That’s no way to run a functioning democracy at all.

'Crying': Sally Jones is said to want to return to the UK Rex
A British-born Isis recruiter from Kent is desperate to return to the UK following the death of her Jihadi husband, it has been claimed.

Sally Jones, 47, fled her Chatham home and took her son to Raqqa in Syria in 2014 after marrying now-dead jihadist Junaid Hussain.

Hussain was killed in a US drone strike in 2015.

In an interview with Sky News, a woman named only as Aisha, claimed Jones had been heard crying and saying she wanted to return to the UK.

Aisha is believed to be the wife of another Isis soldier and is now reportedly being held under Kurdish guard at a refugee camp in Syria.

She told Sky News: “She was crying and wants to get back to Britain but ISIS is preventing her because she is now a military wife. She told me she wish to go to her country [sic].”

In Manchester, pamphlets have been distribute by a group called Public Purity have demanded that Brits do not take their dogs out in public as dogs are considered impure in the Islamic faith.
The groups message is that British citizens must do certain things that may be considered uncomfortable in order to make its Muslim citizens feel more at home. Why exactly this type of whiny, ultimatum inducing behavior would make citizens of a non-Islamic nation care how its Muslim residents feel is unclear.

Muslims DEMAND Locals Don’t Walk Dogs In Public – Violation Of Sharia And “DISRESPECTS” Them

In Manchester, pamphlets have been distribute by a group called Public Purity have demanded that Brits do not take their dogs out in public as dogs are considered impure in the Islamic faith.

Why exactly this type of whiny, ultimatum inducing behavior would make citizens of a non-Islamic nation care how its Muslim residents feel is unclear.

What is clear, however, is that this type of intrusive behavior from Muslim immigrants helps to explain British citizens unwillingness to remain in the European Union.

British citizens were roundly denounced as xenophobes following the #Brexit situation, but if this pamphlet is any indication the Brits way of life really was being challenged by these new visitors.

London Mayor Called Tel Aviv for Counter-Terrorism Advice Following Attacks

“For with wise advice thou shalt make thy war; and in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.” Proverbs 24:6 (The Israel Bible™)

Signaling Israel’s international prominence in the field, London Mayor Sadiq Khan sought advice from Tel Aviv in combating urban terrorism and extremism following the recent terror attacks in Manchester and London Bridge, Jewish News reported.

Khan, who is Muslim, told Jewish News that his office, as well as the head of national counter-terrorism policing, Mark Rowley, had been in touch with Israeli officials over the best methods of preventing and combating acts of terror in urban or civilian settings.

He said they had learned “lots of things, things like putting in place the barriers we have done in London. There are other things and we are using the advice we receive.”

Israel regularly installs large concrete barriers in front of bus stops and other gathering spots for pedestrians in order to stop car-ramming attacks.

“Just like the terrorists evolve, we have to find new ways to protect ourselves,” said Khan, who added that in addition to regular contact with their Israeli counterparts, British police visit Israel as well.

England has not only received assistance from Israel in security but in disaster relief and recovery. Following last month’s devastating suicide bombing attack during an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, in which 22 people were killed, Israeli trauma experts flew to the city to offer their expert aid in counseling terror victims. They also trained dozens of British mental health professionals in providing trauma care.

Sinn Fein MPs confirm they WILL NOT take Commons seats amid fears party 'will topple May'

SINN FEIN has sent its seven MPs to Westminster for its induction to Westminster amid fears the party could thwart the proposed Tory alliance with the DUP.

The Irish Republican party confirmed their MPs were attending the House of Commons induction day for newcomers, register for allowances and sign up for office space.

Sinn Fein historically opposes Westminster’s jurisdiction in Northern Ireland and its oath to the Queen, so its MPs have abstained from sitting in parliament.

The Tories' failure to secure an overall majority in the House of Commons has given the DUP's 10 MPs a potentially crucial role in keeping Mrs May's administration afloat.

Mr Corbyn is preparing his own Queen’s Speech which could be read should Mrs May’s version be voted down.

The backing of seven Sinn Fein MPs for Labour would effectively reduce the Tory majority to just four, which might bring the Government to the brink of collapse, the Sun revealed.

The seven members today confirmed they will not take their seats in the House of Commons amid the intense speculation.

The party, which traditionally takes its Westminster offices but does not sit in the Houses of Parliament, said its MPs will continue to boycott the Commons. 

Sinn Fein said in a statement: “They have elected us to represent them but not to take our seats.

“We will come over to Westminster to argue with other parties and to fight for our rights and to fight for the rights of Irish citizens." 

If Theresa May fails in her bid to get the Queen’s speech through Parliament it is possible that Mr Corbyn could have the chance to form a minority Labour Government himself.

Although Gerry Adams previously said that Sinn Fein had been granted seven MPs “on the basis of us not taking our seats”.

Mr Adams added that Jeremy Corbyn is a “politician of principle” who will “understand the Sinn Fein position”.

It follows claims by the Sinn Fein president that a referendum on Irish unity is inevitable.

Mr Adams said: “One thing we can say for certainty, there is going to be a referendum on Irish unity.

“I can’t say when it’s going to be, but there is going to be such a referendum.”

Arlene Foster, the DUP leader, warned Sinn Fein that the prospect of direct rule should scare Irish Republicans because the DUP now have greater influence on the UK Government.
