Refugees in the Netherlands are angry because they have to clean their own toilets – Call Syrian prisons a better place

Inhabitants of a Dutch asylum centre in Alkmaar are angry about the building’s new cleaning policy, Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant reports. The refugees now have to clean their own toilets and need a key to visit their own toilet block.
“They want us to clean our own toilets on our knees,” says Ahmad from Palestine. Another migrant says: “Even Syria’s prisons are better!” Bystanders laugh about it. Abu Barak from Syria tells the newspaper he is “in shock” and asks: “Is this the Netherlands?”
The toilets in the facility have no toilet paper as refugees use water for cleaning. They bring watering cans with them and as a result faeces spread through the room.
Spokeswoman of the asylum centre, Alet Bouwmeester, says the new cleaning policy has to do with bad hygiene in the toilets: “The idea is that by making persons responsible, things will improve. When you go to a toilet you leave it behind in a clean state, that’s part of our programme”.
Migrants are also unhappy with the accommodation’s new key system. A woman with a headscarf, called Waed, says: “I have two children, sometimes they urgently need a toilet and how do we have to do that with a key?”
The leaders of the accommodation decided to use the key system after migrants were wandering through the building in search for toilets. Spokeswoman Bouwmeester says they should only use the block in their own section.
As Ahmad calls the municipality he says “this is a dictatorial decision”! He continues: “We are now protesting in a civilised way”.
In two years, the Netherlands accepted more than 32,000 asylum seekers. Most of them come from Syria and Eritrea.

Soros’s Open Society Foundations Announces Exit from Hungary

In a major victory for the Hungarian government and the Hungarian people who overwhelmingly re-elected it in the recent elections, the Open Society Foundations (OSF) has said it will leave Budapest after a sustained campaign against the globalist influence of George Soros.


OSF chairman Patrick Gaspard personally travelled to Hungary’s capital to inform around 100 members of staff there that the international grantmaking network founded by Soros will be moving its Eastern European operations to Berlin, Austria’s Die Presse reportedThursday.After closing its Budapest office in August, the organisation will operate temporarily in Vienna before moving to a site in the German capital, according to the liberal news portal 444.hu.
The OSF’s announcement followed reports that Soros’ Central European University (CEU) is also planning to retreat from Hungary, with the institution having already signed an agreement with a landlord in Vienna where it will establish a campus.
Earlier this month, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s conservative Fidesz party swept to victory in elections, winning a huge two-thirds majority of seats in the Hungarian parliament after a campaign vowing to protect citizens from Soros’s plans to turn the country into a multicultural “nation of immigrants”.
A major pillar of the party’s campaign was directed at the influence of foreign NGOs and the far left financier, who has spent more than $32 billion on OSF’s work to “build vibrant and tolerant democracies” since launching what he describes as his “philanthropic” career in South Africa in 1979.
Since the election, Fidesz has said that a major priority for the government will be passing a package of bills dubbed the “Stop Soros” laws which would tax foreign income to NGOs and restrict the operations of open borders groups.
Speaking on public radio following the foundation’s announcement, Orbán remarked: “I think you will understand if I fail to cry over its decision to close the headquarters in our capital.
“The fight against Soros, its liberal ideology, its initiatives on migrants, will continue wherever the foundations of its foundation are,” he told MR1.
Earlier this week, the government said that despite a landslide victory for patriots at the polls, it was “crystal clear” the Hungarian-born billionaire remains committed to flooding unwilling EU nations with third world migrants.
Both the Fidesz spokesman Zoltán Kovács and the foreign minister Péter Szijjártó denounced a meeting in Brussels Monday between Soros and the European Commission vice-president Frans Timmermans.
“Both are radically pro-immigration and are both committed enemies of the Hungarian government and Hungarian migration policy,” said Szijjártó, stressing that Fidesz has been given a mandate to resist any attempts by the pair to implement their globalist ideology in Hungary.

SELLOUT: May Tells Voters Continued Influence of EU Law and EU Court After Brexit a ‘Hard Fact’

Theresa May has said the continued influence of EU law and the EU court is a “hard fact” which voters must accept.

The Prime Minister began her speech on Britain’s future relationship with the European Union by telling voters:

The government I lead will be driven not by the interests of the privileged few, but by yours.
We will do everything we can to give you more control over your lives.
When we take the big calls, we’ll think not of the powerful, but you.
When we pass new laws, we’ll listen not to the mighty but to you.
When it comes to taxes, we’ll prioritise not the wealthy, but you.
When it comes to opportunity, we won’t entrench the advantages of the fortunate few.
 She delivered the speech at Mansion House, the official residence of the Lord Mayor of London and home to a historic art collection and one of the largest gold and silver plate collections in the world.
The most striking announcement in her speech was her declaration that the public must we “face up to some hard facts”, however.
“[E]ven after we have left the jurisdiction of the [European Court of Justice], EU law and the decisions of the ECJ will continue to affect us,” she announced.
“When we leave the EU, the Withdrawal Bill will bring EU law into UK law. That means cases will be determined in our courts. But, where appropriate, our courts will continue to look at the ECJ’s judgments, as they do for the appropriate jurisprudence of other countries’ courts.
“And if, as part of our future partnership, Parliament passes an identical law to an EU law, it may make sense for our courts to look at the appropriate ECJ judgments so that we both interpret those laws consistently.”
Why the British Parliament would be passing laws identical to EU laws after Brexit — and why it should be up to the European Court of Justice to interpret such laws — was unclear.
She also added that “if we agree that the UK should continue to participate in an EU agency the UK would have to respect the remit of the ECJ in that regard”.

German 7th Grader: ‘I Am Marginalised Because I Am German and Eat Pork’

Bullying in German schools in Berlin’s heavily migrant populated areas has increased drastically with pupils claiming that they are threatened and beaten simply because they are German, and not Muslim.


Teachers in schools across Berlin are voicing concern over bullying from migrant-background Muslim children towards German children who can find themselves in a minority. According to one 7th grader in Berlin’s Schöneberg district, many Muslim migrant-background children bully and beat him simply for being German, Tagesspiegel reports. In an interview with the newspaper, the unnamed pupil said: “I’m in seventh grade in a high school in Schöneberg. There, I am marginalised because I am German and eat pork. They swear in Turkish and Arabic about me.”
“In German, I am insulted as a son of a bitch or a fucked whore. In addition, I am sometimes beaten and kicked. If I get too close to other boys, they call me gay and kick me,” he added.
“Girls in my class are called sluts when they wear strapless shirts. I’ve been trying to change school for many months but can not find a free place to go to school. The school office and the school do not help me,” he said.
As a result of bullying, many teachers in Berlin have spoken out including Hildegard Greif-Gross, director of the Peter Petersen Elementary School in Neukölln, who said that young pupils can be bullied for as little as bringing a ham sandwich to school as part of their packed lunch.
Jewish pupils have also been singled out by bullies in diverse areas. In one case in May of last year, a Jewish pupil in Berlin was forced to change schools because of constant bullying and threats that eventually led to him being beaten by other pupils.
The 14-year-old, whose parents had moved to Berlin from the UK, put their son in a diverse school which he initially enjoyed until his fellow pupils found out he was Jewish.
Earlier this week, yet another anti-Semitic attack occurred when a teenager wearing a kippah filmed himself being violently attacked by a Muslim who whipped him with a belt while yelling “Jew!” in Arabic.

The Birmingham Speech, fifty years on

By Stephen Kruger

April 20, 2018, marks the 50th anniversary of the significant speech about harmful immigration by the late, great Enoch Powell MP.
The speech warned of excessive immigration into the U.K. by non-white people. Their numbers would make Anglo-Saxons a minority in their own country. Non-white people would be unassimilable. Social disruption would ensue. 
A pejorative label (“rivers of blood”) was given to the speech by leftists to misrepresent it. The takeoff point for the misrepresentation appears almost at the end of the speech Powell said, “As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding. Like the Roman, I seem to see ‘the River Tiber foaming with much blood’.” The quoted words come from The Aeneid. Powell was learned in the classics.
The quotation has “river” (singular). The pejorative label uses “rivers” (plural). The aim of the pejorative label is to impute falsely, to Powell, advocacy of violence to prevent immigration of non-white people.
Far from advocacy of violence, Powell expressed obvious truths about immigration into the U.K. He expressed sadness at the coming of deplorable societal conditions which were wholly preventable.
The truth of immigration is obvious. Substitute “Muslims” for “non-white people,” and “Europe” for “U.K.” Muslims, not Anglo-Saxons and other native people of Europe, cause crime waves in France, Germany, Sweden, the U.K., and elsewhere. Muslims established and maintain no-go zones, beat their wives, and mutilate their daughters. They, not Anglo-Saxons and other native people of Europe, are Jew-haters of the Nazi sort.
Would that Enoch Powell's prescient warning had been heeded.

Turkey Targeting Greece - Again

by Uzay Bulut
  • With the illegal seizures and occupation of northern Cyprus in 1974 and the Syrian city of Afrin this March -- with virtually no global reaction -- Turkey apparently feels unchallenged and eager to continue; this time, it seems, with the oil-and-gas rich islands of Greece.
  • "To take an interest in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Crimea, Karabakh, Bosnia and other brotherly regions is both the duty and the right of Turkey. Turkey is not just Turkey. The day we give up on these things will be the day we give up on our freedom and future." — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, 2016.
  • Turkish needs are in reality supplied by its association with the US. Turkish officials usually get whatever they want from the West, but they seem to have chosen to align themselves with Iran and Russia, possibly in attempt to blackmail the West for more.
Turkey has been harassing Greece consistently. Most recently, this week, on April 17, two Turkish fighter aircraft harassed the helicopter carrying Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and the Greek Armed Forces Chief Admiral Evangelos Apostolakis as they were flying from the islet of Ro to Rhodes.

Another provocation by the Turkish government recently took place when three young Greek men recently paid tribute to a dead pilot by planting five flags in some islets in the Aegean.
According to the Turkish media, Turkey first urged Greece to remove the flags, then carried out a military operation against a tiny islet, Mikros Anthropofagos, at night: special operation units (SAT) of the Turkish Navy allegedly removed them on April 15.
"Do not take dangerous steps," Turkish foreign minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, warned Greece: "Our soldiers might cause an accident."
Many Turkish media outlets proudly covered the operation as if Turkey, in a triumphant battle, had conquered new realms. The Greek media, however, reported that according to witnesses in the area, all five flags are apparently still in place.
The Aegean islands that Turkey keep threatening to invade, legally and historically belong to Greece.
Since Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited Greece last December, the Turkish media has escalated its anti-Greek, pro-war reporting concerning "the Greek occupation of the islands." Some newspapers claim that "Greece has become home to terrorists hostile to Turkey." Others say, "Greece is planning to invade Turkey." Some columnists claim that "Turkey can fight against Greece in the Aegean", while others accuse Greek consular officials in Istanbul of trying to revive the Greek Byzantine Empire through an exhibition the Greek consulate organized in Istanbul from December 2017 - January 2018.
Why are so many Turks obsessed with Greece?
In 1923, after a major attack against Anatolian Greeks -- the 1913-1923 genocide -- the Turkish republic was founded. Since then, Turkey's expansionist goals seem to be inspired by a seeming historical aggression, hatred towards Greeks, neo-Ottomanism and an Islamic tradition of conquest, or jihad.
From the mid-15th century until the proclamation of the first Hellenic republic in 1822, modern Greece's borders were occupied by the Ottoman Empire. Erdogan has been open about his goals of resurrecting the Empire or at least expanding Turkish territory as much as possible:
"There are physical borders and there are borders in our hearts," he said. "Some people ask us: 'Why do you take an interest in Iraq, Syria, Georgia, Crimea, Karabakh, Azerbaijan, the Balkans, and North Africa?'... None of these lands is foreign to us. Is it possible to divide Rize [in Turkey] from Batumi [in Georgia]? How can we consider Edirne [in Turkey] to be separate from Thessaloniki [in Greece]? How can we think that Gaziantep [in Turkey] has nothing to do with Aleppo [in Syria], Mardin [in Turkey] with Al-Hasakah [in Syria], or Siirt [in Turkey] with Mosul [in Iraq]?
"From Thrace to Eastern Europe, with every step you take, you will see traces of our ancestors... We would need to deny our true selves for us to think Gaza and Siberia, with whom we speak the same language and share the same culture, is separate from us. To take an interest in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Crimea, Karabakh, Bosnia and other brotherly regions is both the duty and the right of Turkey. Turkey is not just Turkey. The day we give up on these things will be the day we give up on our freedom and future."
Erdogan also referred to the Misak-ı Milli ("National Pact"), a set of decisions made by the Ottoman Parliament in 1920 concerning the borders of the future Turkish state to be established in Ottoman Turkey. The National Pact is commonly referenced by Turks when calling for Turkish territorial expansion.
The Turkish newspaper Hürriyet wrote:
"Some historians say that according to the National Pact, the Turkish borders include -- in addition to the current borders of Turkey -- Cyprus, Aleppo [in Syria], Mosul, Erbil, Kirkuk [in Iraq], Batumi [in Georgia], Thessaloniki [in Greece], Kardzhali, Varna [in Bulgaria], and the Aegean islands."
On April 18, the Turkish foreign ministry asserted, "the Kardak rocks [Greece's Imia islets] and their territorial waters and airspace above them are exclusive under Turkish sovereignty."
Major political parties in Turkey unite in their desire to invade the Aegean islands -- what they disagree on is who is guilty of having allowed Greek sovereignty over the islands in the first place. The main opposition party, the CHP, (Republican People's Party) accuses the ruling AKP (Justice and Development Party) of "letting Greeks occupy Turkish islands"; the AKP accuses the CHP, the founding party of Turkey, of "letting Greeks take the islands through the 1923 Lausanne treaty."
Turkey's quests for new economic gains from additional tourism, but especially from the newly-found Aegean oil and gas potential, seem to have intensified Turkey's renewed interest in Greece.
In 2011, after facing an economic crisis, Greece re-launched its own gas and oil exploration. Last year, France's Total and Italy's Edison companies signed a lease for oil and gas exploration off Greece, Reuters reported.
Although Greece might well be willing to partner with Turkey in economic agreements, Turkey appears to prefer "other means."
Turkish needs are in reality supplied by its association with the US. Turkish officials usually get whatever they want from the West, but they seem to have chosen to align themselves with Iran and Russia, possibly in attempt to blackmail the West for more.
In the meantime, Turkish politicians threaten Greece on Turkish national television. Yiğit Bulut, a chief advisor to Erdogan, recently said that he wants to avenge the blood of his grandfather, whom he claims was killed by Greeks:
"Anatolia [Turkey] will walk all over Greece. And no one can prevent this. Greece should know its place. If they try to attack and rape this geography like they did 100 years ago by trusting [French President] Macron, England, the U.S., Germany and [Angela] Merkel, these attempts will end terribly."
The time to stop Turkey is now.

Rotherham Council Ordered to Apologise to Whistleblower Who Exposed Grooming Scandal

Rotherham Council has been ordered to apologise to a whistleblower who helped expose the mass exploitation of underage white girls by mostly Muslim men.


Jayne Senior, who has worked with grooming victims since 1999 and was made a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 2016 for services to child protection, helped to blow the lid off a long-running grooming gang scandal in the town. She revealed how council officials, social services, and police — paralysed by fears of racism accusations — failed to act while at least 1,400 girls were abused.But just months after she received her award and published her memoirs, Broken and Betrayedthe council orchestrated a raid on the charity she runs, Swinton Lock — part of an investigation which has now been slammed by the local government ombudsman, which has ordered Rotherham Council to apologise to Senior for continuously misleading her about its progress and keeping her in the dark about its details.
“I’m appalled it’s taken so long. It’s crazy how ill-informed [Senior] has been through the process,” commented Sarah Champion, the Member of Parliament for Rotherham. Ms. Champion was herself forced to resign from Labour’s shadow government after admitting that “Britain has a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls” which it is afraid to confront.
“In the five years I have been an MP I have never come across something like this affecting a constituent, let alone a councillor and a well-known whistleblower. You would think that the council would be trying to do everything in a timely manner. In fact, the opposite has happened.”
“As one of those who helped bring the Rotherham [child sexual exploitation] scandal to light, I will continue to support children and families who were systematically failed by those whose statutory duty was to protect them and I will continue to work with the authorities to ensure justice is served,” Senior said in a statement.
“I welcome the Ombudsman’s decision but am disappointed that I have had to endure many months of unnecessary stress. Matters are now in the hands of our lawyers and consequently I cannot make any further comment.”
