    Strasbourg Hands Brit Taxes To Terrorists! ‘Human Rights?’ 


    Gambar terkait

    Europe’s top rights court on Tuesday ordered Spain to compensate two ETA members convicted of the 2006 bombing of Madrid airport for the “inhuman and degrading treatment” they suffered in police custody.

    ETA airport bombers win compensation victory

    =

    Is there not one whit of conscience, no shame at all, to be found among these overpaid ( over £150,000, traditionally paid tax-free! ) robed scum?

    =

    Yes, of course we’re talking about the ‘European Court of Human Rights,’ the ECHR, ever-ready to champion vermin like these two ETA terrorists.

    Found guilty and given life (instead of the death they deserved) after their bomb killed two innocents and left 50 more defenceless people injured, these ETA beasts outrageously turned to the robed rats for ‘compensation.’

    Why?

    The pair claimed they were kicked and punched by officers following their arrest by counter-terrorism police in early 2008. 

    Pity the police didn’t beat them to death!

    Then we wouldn’t need to read how those bleeding-heart b-st-rds in Strasbourg…

    ..

    ….are now lashing out YOUR cash to ‘compensate’ the terrorists!  I say ‘your’ because, if you are reading this in Britain…

    =

    …then thanks to Theresa The Appeaser’s disgusting U-Turn, the UK is still subject to the deranged diktats of this contemptible court – not one of her Brexit u-turns; she did the dirty on this issue ages ago…

    =

    =

    …after she had previously said she would back leaving the ECHR, and replace the 1998 Human Rights Act with a British Bill of Rights

    =

    =

    …but suddenly, she stabbed her country in the back.

    Theresa ‘I Won’t Deliver Brits From Europe’s Robed Rogues.’

    Any money awarded by the vermin in ermine to the ETA animals should be seized and handed over to the kin of their victims.

    If I sound a little angry, aren’t you!

      Poor us, told we are facing economic challenges and everybody worrying about how to make ends meet and here’s our money paying gigantic salaries to these fools to throw financial favours to terrorists .
      Did the UK judges vote against it? Were they all pro-terrorist?

      Yes it does make me angry, do these fools ever do anything that might make sense to sane people?

      If you’re a terrorist, you get a hand-out, definately not from their big fat salaries but from tax-payers in one or other of the countries stupid enough to be under their control.

      As you say, not a penny do they offer to the victims’ families.
      They ARE b-stards and I wonder if they will ever get bombed by terrorists?
      God knows I wouldnt shed a tear.

    I speak almost no Italian , but recognised it from my university days(not in Italy!) when our far-left opponents used to sing it during their aggressive manifestations.  Then too the Reds were indifferent to free debate, and liked to throw their weight about.

    That made a lot of my fellow-students realise how little marxism had to offer.

    Petition For British Religious Liberty! 


    This is a petition organised by the charity, Barnabas Fund.

    =

    Here is an extract from its website:

    “Religious freedoms in the UK have taken centuries to build, but intolerance, complacency and uniformity are slowly eroding them away.

    It’s easy to sit back and ignore the damage because, like erosion, it’s not always immediately visible on the surface.

    But look a little closer and you can begin to see the cracks.

    “When nurses are being sacked for wearing crosses or praying, and students are being kicked off their course for their beliefs, you have to ask yourself how safe these freedoms are.

    At what point do you act?

    “We are not looking for a quick fix. Erosion needs prevention and that prevention is a new law: a new law, once and for all, to safeguard all aspects of freedom of religion or belief before we lose them, along with freedom of speech.”

    A quick history lesson. Magna Carta’s affirmation that “the English Church shall be free” was gradually worked out over the centuries into seven specific aspects of freedom of religion:

    1. Freedom to read the Bible in public (achieved 1537)
    2. Freedom to interpret the Bible without government interference (achieved 1559)
    3. Freedom of worship (achieved 1689)
    4. Freedom to choose, or change your faith or belief (achieved 1689)
    5. Freedom to preach and try to convince others of the truth of your beliefs (achieved 1812)
    6. Freedom to build churches and other places of worship (achieved 1812)
    7. Freedom from being required to affirm a particular worldview or set of beliefs in order to hold a public sector job or stand for election, work in professions such as teaching and law, or study at university (achieved by the repeal of various Test Acts between 1719 and 1888)

    petition has been created, which we urge you to sign, to get those freedoms enshrined in law. We want the new law to positively affirm the freedoms to practice, share and change one’s beliefs without government interference or societal persecution. These are important freedoms and should be protected.

    Brain-Wash Britain – ‘Re-Education!’ Order For Labour MP! 


     Remember Vietnam, after America’s Enemy Within media and the mangy college creeps subverted the war and let the Reds take power.

    Re-Education camps sprang up, where decent Vietnamese were consigned for indoctrination by the marxist victors.

    Similar facilities now exist in the UK, and although there may be no barbed wire or gun-toting guards, there’s no moral difference between the cruel camps in South East Asia…

    But even that’s not enough for some of the fanatics in the separatist SNP regime in Edinburgh, who want Mr. Gaffney drummed out of politics altogether, even though he’s issued a grovelling apology for his great ideological sin!

    Here’s an obnoxious example of the intolerance that characterises the SNP, and Scotland, and the UK, these days.

    ‘Robert Burns wasn’t bent!’ Labour MP under fire for comments on gays & Chinese people

    Oh!

    He simply told the truth about the character of Scotland’s national bard…

    …who indeed was far from bent! He was, if anything, hyper-normal, chasing women every time he got the chance – dashed fine chap, that Burns!

    And Hapless Hugh dared describe Chinese take-aways in the same way almost all Scots describe them. Scots do not hate, or even dislike, Chinese food or Chinese people. It’s slang, not a slur!

    Alas, he chose the wrong venue to talk like a normal Scotsman!

    ….the MP for Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill, apologized for comments he made at a Scottish Labour Students’ Burns Supper, held at Edinburgh University

    ‘Robert Burns wasn’t bent!’ Labour MP under fire for comments …

     MILLENNIALS!

    …the MP shocked the Labour students when he delivered a self-penned poem in which he joked that Burns, Scotland’s national poet, was not “bent.”

    If he should be tormented for anything, it ought to be his far-from-erudite poetry.

      This is very informative and using Enemy Within media as the basis for what you’ve written makes it well nigh impossible for the left to refute your case.

      Once they get on the mainland of Greece, with no restraints placed on their movement by the Tsipras government, then they can and will make other European countries their goal.
      Haven’t those countries you name, like Germany and Italy etc, got enough migrant sex criminals brought in by Merkel already?
      It is imperative that until deportation becomes a daily reality, they be kept on islands.
      But there should be secure detention there, electric fences and as you say, armed guards to protect the Greek islanders.

        You’ve the right idea, Pamela, but time’s running out.

        They’ve been told not to fire a shot against the ‘migrants’ stealing and wrecking their property.
        Tsipras is their enemy and it’s him that must be kicked out as much as the criminal aliens.
        The patriotic opposition should ask the armed forces for help to achieve this and then dare the European Union to interfere on Tsipras behalf.

      The Greeks deserve better of their government but Tsipras is a marxist and after misleading the voters with lies about resisting Brussels, he has shown himself a willing accessory to EU plans for his country.

      More fool the Greeks, we can say, but we in Britain elected May and the French chose Macron so it would be a bit thick to criticise Greeks for their bad judgement.

    East Java Kids Face An Anti-Valentine Diktat! 


    Haram!

    We have not seen so many news reports of anti-Valentine hysteria in Indonesia this year, although there has been one classic, already noted…

    and while maybe an encouraging sign, that deprives me of good raw material like those last year…

    …or in the years before that.

    However, here’s one more example that popped up a few days ago!

    The latest anti-Valentine jackboot bigotry, NOT by the MUI fanatics this time, but, incredibly, according to Eramuslim news page, by the Department of Education and Culture in Bondowoso Regency, East Java!

    These sticky-beak bureaucrats are not content to issue a diktat for the educational property that comes within their sphere of authority –

    “We have sent a circular letter to the school to ban students not to celebrate valentine day that is not our culture,” said Head of Education and Culture of Bondowoso, Endang Hardiyanti in Bondowoso

     =======

    According to Endang, the celebration of “Valentine Day” tends to lead to negative things that are not in accordance with religious norms and Eastern culture, so it’s reasonable if the next generation of the nation is empowered not to the day of love.

    Part of what she says is true, clearly. Valentines would be as unknown in Indonesia as other cultural imports, e.g. Mickey Mouse and jazz, were it not for Western influence.

    Are the two latter phenomena also to be outlawed because of her chauvinistic prejudice? Do Mickey, and jazz, also lead to ‘negative things?’

    One assumes not. One sadly assumes that the animosity towards Valentines is motivated by the perceived like between the celebration and normal affection between boys and girls.

    But that reference to religion is downright sinister.

    =

    Endang goes on to rant that Valentine’s Day is very contrary to our religion, so we need to fortify the students to not be affected by negative culture.”

    I thought Indonesia was a pluralist country!

    She’s a Muslim, but the Provincial Department she’s meant to serve is itself meant to serve ALL children in East Java, regardless of religion.

    Her sectarian outlook is deplorable, but she seems not even to confine her Islamist intimidation to the schools.

    Endang has issued a circular.

    “The school should inform the parents of the students about the ban, either by mail, or through meetings.”

    What’s not clear is whether she’s trying to expand her intolerance beyond the school-yard to the unfortunate students’ homes…

    …or if perhaps, in a last-minute glimmer of rationality, she aims to give parents the opportunity to challenge her dictatorial decree.

    Eramuslim doesn’t pursue this question, but I tend to fear the former explanation is more likely!

      You do good to tell us that Indonesia is pluralist from its first independence day in 1945.
      This woman can talk about our religion but she only means HER religion.
      She forget other people have rights also and beside that many Muslim younger people also enjoy romantic dinner today.
      We like the valentine fun and it is not bad for anybody.

      Wow. I ask you for more about our Indonesia and soon you make the wish come true.
      This is very good and I send this comment as my well-done valentine to thank you.
      Why can East Java schoolchildren not enjoy cards and flowers same like I did when I was at school in Jakarta.
      Killjoy is a fine word to call the people against valentines.
