"Israel isn't on the maps in the Palestinian textbooks"

CAPITALISM MAGAZINE writes about "Children as Bombs" - a look into the culture of Death that is modern Islam:
As if things weren't crazy enough already in the Middle East, here's the officially sanctioned message in sixth-grade Palestinian textbooks for 11- and 12-year-old kids: "The noble soul has two goals: death and the desire for it."

By destroying the individual Islam - a collective ideology that has not been allowed to secularize - destroys the entire society:
As officially stated, the underlying ethos of the Palestinian curriculum is "built on the principle of breeding the individual on the basis of serving society as a whole." Translated, that means breeding kids who believe suicide and murder are noble, who believe it's noble to create a society where the individual reaches his highest stage of development by extinguishing his own individualism, his own existence.

According to CapMag, what these kids need is a bit of Ayn Rand:
What the aforementioned young people could use is some major deprogramming. For starters, the suicide-promoting poetry in their curriculum could be replaced with some Ayn Rand, the perfect antidote for self-immolation.

The Land of Liberty Holds the Torch

Finland's high GDP growth this year is thanks to - no surprise - the US! It goes without saying that European welfare states are very dependent on the freer markets in the US. You better start hoping the US never implements a Nordic welfare system:

"Tapiola Pankin mukaan Suomen talouskasvun suurin riski on Yhdysvalloissa. Pankin mukaan asuntomarkkinoiden nopea heikentyminen Yhdysvalloissa voi johtaa kierteeseen, jonka seurauksena koko maailmantalouden kasvu hidastuu merkittävästi."

Benedict quoted from a book recounting a conversation between 14th century Byzantine Christian Emperor Manuel Paleologos II and a Persian scholar on the truths of Christianity and Islam.
"The emperor comes to speak about the issue of jihad, holy war," the pope said. "He said, I quote, 'Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."'

So that's what the Pope said and here's how the Muslim community responded:

"Anyone who describes Islam as a religion as intolerant encourages violence," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman (of Pakistan) Tasnim Aslam said.

So because Islam is a tolerant religion criticizing it encourages violence such as the anti-Christianity, anti-Pope protests that followed the Pope's speech? It sure as hell keeps portraying itself as tolerant.
The Muslim Council, which represents 400 groups in Britain, said the emperor's views were "ill-informed and frankly bigoted."
"One would expect a religious leader such as the pope to act and speak with responsibility and repudiate the Byzantine emperor's views in the interests of truth and harmonious relations between the followers of Islam and Catholicism," said Muhammad Abdul Bari, the council's secretary-general.

How about focusing more on what their fellow Muslim imams have said in public?

And they didn't forget the Nazi card:
"Benedict, the author of such unfortunate and insolent remarks, is going down in history for his words," he said. "He is going down in history in the same category as leaders such as (Adolf) Hitler and (Benito) Mussolini." -Salih Kapusuz, a deputy leader of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's party

Kenen mittari antaa parhaan tuloksen

Ruotsia hallitseva sosiaalidemokraattipuolue jatkaa kommunistipropagandamasiinan ylläpitoa. Helsingin Sanomien mukaan Ruotsin ammattiliittojen keskusjärjestön pääekonomisti Dan Andersson vaatii, että Ruotsi luopuisi nykyisistä, todellista
työttömyyttä piilottelevista virallisista työttömyystilastoista. Ruotsin todellinen työttömyys on vähintään Suomen tasoa; oikeisto- ja liberaalipoliittikkojen mukaan melkein kaksikymmentä prosenttia. Suomessa on kansainvälisesti laajalti käytössä oleva mittaustapa (oikeastaan Suomessa on käytössä kaksi mittaustapaa), jonka käyttöönottoa Ruotsin demarihallitus vastustaa. Nykyinen demarihallitus siis käyttää veronmaksajien rahoja harhaanjohtavan propagandan ulossuoltamiseen.
