Internet could be conquered by UN in October

Joel Pollak once again warns that Obama could transfer ICANN into the hands of the UN, which is bound to destroy internet freedom unless an alternative can be found:
It’s shocking the administration admits it has no plan for how Icann retains its antitrust exemption. The reason Icann can operate the entire World Wide Web root zone is that it has the status of a legal monopolist, stemming from its contract with the Commerce Department that makes Icann an “instrumentality” of government. [...]

Without the U.S. contract, Icann would seek to be overseen by another governmental group so as to keep its antitrust exemption. Authoritarian regimes have already proposed Icann become part of the U.N. to make it easier for them to censor the internet globally. So much for the Obama pledge that the U.S. would never be replaced by a “government-led or an inter-governmental organization solution.”
The worst part is that, much like with the Iran deal, Obama could push this through no matter what protests are issued. There are already Senators introducing a bill to protect the internet. But everyone who believes in freedom will have to be wary of what could happen in another month.

Update: here's another report on Newsmax.

Haredi men arrested for drug smuggling at airport

2 Haredis were caught carrying a suitcase with some pretty heavy supplies of cocaine:
Israeli customs officials recently arrested two ultra-Orthodox men at Ben Gurion Airport in possession of 7.5 kilograms (16.5 pounds) of cocaine stashed in a suitcase.

Several other men are suspected of involvement in attempt to smuggle the illegal substance, Channel 2 reported Friday.

[...] The bust was the latest in a series of arrests of alleged drug smugglers attempting to sneak illegal substances into the country. In July officers seized five kilograms (11 pounds) of ecstasy found in liquid form in a man’s suitcase.

The drug, said to be worth NIS 2 million ($524,000), was concealed inside wine bottles and absorbed within the walls of a suitcase.

Three ultra-Orthodox Israeli men were also nabbed in July for allegedly operating an international drug trafficking operation after authorities found thousands of ecstasy pills on their person at the airport.
One can only wonder how many people in the Haredi community itself are hooked on that crap. The case certainly proves there's some truly awful activities going on in their insular world.

A rabbi who defends the burkini ban

A rabbi in France has ideally defended banning burkinis from French beaches:
A senior Paris rabbi defended a string of controversial municipal bans in France on wearing the full-body swimsuit known as a burkini in public.

Moshe Sebbag of the Grand Synagogue told JTA on Tuesday that he supported in principle the regulations adopted earlier this month in 15 French municipalities, including the famed beach resort Cannes. Last week, Prime Minister Manuel Valls said the garb, worn by Muslim women in accord with their religious views of modesty, was part of a “political project” to perpetuate female servitude.

“It’s a complicated subject and both sides have compelling arguments,” Sebbag said in an interview.

While the French state is a “secular country with freedom of religion,” he said, the mayors in question “understood this is not about women’s liberty to dress modestly, but a statement as to who will rule here tomorrow.” The rabbi added that this owed to recent jihadist terror attacks in France.

“They understand today there’s a religious war, a takeover of the secular establishment of the French republic, and this is what they find unacceptable,”
Sebbag said. Asked if he agrees with the burkini bans, he said: “Yes, because you see that going with it [a burkini] is not innocent, it’s sending a message.”
Yes, the way those Muslims involved are going about it, it's clear they're doing everything they can to disgust the public and symbolize contempt. And, as I may have noted before, burkinis can be used to smuggle small weapons like dynamite sticks and grenades, and could even be used for drug smuggling. There's also hygiene to worry about. So all municipalities who consider the burkini a bad idea should stand firm on their decision to keep it off the beaches.

Clinton foundation donors had access to State Department

ABC News (via Hot Air) tells that donors to the Clinton's self-named foundation had access to State Department material, including Huma Abedin:
A series of newly released State Department emails obtained by ABC News offers fresh insight on direct contact between the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton’s inner circle while she was Secretary of State.

The emails -– released as part of a public records lawsuit by conservative group Citizens United and shared exclusively with ABC — reveal what the group claims is new evidence Foundation allies received special treatment. [Read the emails here.]

In one December 2010 email chain with Clinton’s closest aide Huma Abedin, then-top Clinton Foundation official Doug Band offers names for a State Department lunch with Chinese President Hu Jintao scheduled for January 2011.

On the list were three executives from organizations that have donated millions to the Clinton Foundation: Bob McCann, the then-president of wealth management at UBS; Dr. Judith Rodin, the president of the Rockefeller Foundation; and Hikmet Ersek, the CEO of Western Union.
If Hilary Clinton's elected, there's every chance they'll have access to more sensitive information. It'll be disastrous.

Satmar don't want women to be educated

The Satmar have desecrated the Torah yet again:
The leaders of an ultra-Orthodox Jewish group – the Satmar sect – have just issued a decree from their base in New York. It calls for a ban on women entering university, with rabbis arguing that it is “dangerous” for them to do so, and “against the Torah”.
It's also insulting to God to belittle the Almighty's creations. And, as noted in the article, nothing new for the Satmar either:
Ultra-Orthodox rabbis have in the past condemned education for women. Rabbi Aviezer Peletz previously spoke at a conference for high school principals in Bnei Brak, Israel, and argued that higher education for women is more damaging to the ultra-Orthodox community than the Holocaust.

There are other rules and practices in the Satmar sect which have raised issues in terms of the treatment of women. One example is head shaving, which a Satmar woman describes as “forced”, involving “threats” and “intimidation” in order to maintain it in the community. Another ultra-Orthodox group, the Belz sect, has a community in the UK, and last year issued a ban on women driving.

As we can see, the Satmar sect makes rules for women that are not seen in other branches and denominations of Judaism – either Orthodox or Reform – since it adopts a stricter interpretation of the Torah. The sect is well-respected in the Jewish community at large, but because of the conflicts it has with more modern, secular values, it is unlikely that this decree will be welcomed, in any measure, by the majority of Jews worldwide.
I would just disagree with the part about interpretation, since it's not even speaking for Judaism at all. What they're doing is digging deeper and deeper holes, making utter idiots of themselves, and desecrating the Torah and everything Judaism's all about. And all for the sake of their narrow viewpoint on life.

French Muslim goes to Australia and murders British woman on vacation

The AP Wire, however, just calls him a "French man", even as they admit he called out a certain phrase in Arabic (via The Jawa Report):
A French man shouting the Arabic phrase "Allahu akbar" stabbed a British woman to death and wounded two men in an attack at a hostel in northeast Australia, police said Wednesday.

The attack took place Tuesday night at a hostel in the town of Home Hill, south of Townsville in northern Queensland. A 21-year-old British woman was found dead at the scene and a 30-year-old British man was hospitalized in critical condition. A local man was treated and released for injuries. A dog was also fatally wounded in the attack.
Even down under, it's becoming truly dangerous.

California Islamist murdered grandparents

Westword has a disturbing report about a Muslim convert in California who murdered his grandparents (via Jihad Watch):
The video onetime Coloradan Nathaniel Scheiern posted on his Facebook page circa May 4 comes with an all-caps warning/message: “GRAPHIC FOOTAGE. ADULTS ONLY. LESSONS WITH LIFE’S TESTS MAKES EASY A`s!

The clip appears to be an ISIS terror video — and we’re not sharing it here because invective is followed by scenes of people being beheaded.

It’s too soon to know if material like this has any relation to the Glendale, California murders of Scheiern’s grandparents, William and Verna, for which Nathaniel was formally charged this week. But an autopsy reported cited by the Glendale News-Press reveals that William and Verna, ages 77 and 82 respectively, died of “blood loss from traumatic injuries.”
Yet another monster who was influenced by both the Koran and ISIS. It's horrifying how Islamofascism has such a nasty impact on anybody who adheres to such filth.

New rocket attack hits Sderot

After some time minus the rocket attacks from Gaza, another one's struck Sderot. The army struck back, but there's your proof that so long as Islam is around, so too will be the potential rocket attacks.
