  1. Russia is leaning on Hamas to try to get the Palestinian terror group to cease its rocket attacks on Israel.

    If Russia decides to stop its coddling of Ahmadinehandjobistan, could this perhaps be interpreted as a sign that Israel might be trying to find more reliable allies than the ally-in-name-only that the Buraq Hussein Osama administration has been?

  2. “Britain’s ‘enormous’ state handouts to asylum seekers were furiously criticised yesterday — by the Mayor of Calais.”

    “Natacha Bouchart said these payouts were the lure for thousands of foreigners using the French port as a staging point to cross the Channel illegally.”

    Which, coming from a French official, is certainly saying something. We know a thing or two about “enormous state handouts” in France.

    However, it is unfortunate that Mrs. Bouchart did not take this opportunity to wonder whether, possibly, by any chance, “state handouts”, enormous or otherwise, might be a major factor in attracting huge numbers of unwanted immigrants in France, both legal and illegal.

    We do have our own share of illiterate and violent immigrants, with lousy work ethics, disputable family values and anti-social habits, draining precious resources from the state budget.

    Alas, there’s no hint that Mrs. Bouchart, who belongs to the president’s party, the UMP, helped Nicolas Sarkozy get a grip on French reality, based on what she sees day in day out in Calais.

  3. In hoc signo vinces

    This highlights the distraction politics deployed by the EU political elite entice the opposition to burn up their energy cooking red herrings such as “welfare dependency”.

    How absurd the French pointing the finger at the English for the rotten stench wafting across the Channel that is the French immigration policy – my advice for all Fortress Europe.
