German Federal Supreme Court rejects as unconstitutional a law banning child marriage

No Western country should bend its laws and abandon its principles in order to appease anyone or to suit any religious sensibilities at the expense of its women and girls. And yet this is not happening in Germany alone; many Western countries are increasingly adopting a two-tier legal system, allowing for a harmful accommodation of Sharia norms.

“German Supreme Court Rejects Anti-Child Marriage Law as Unconstitutional,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart,December 26, 2018:

The German Federal Supreme Court has made a new ruling on a child marriage case which could have implications on the way child marriages conducted legally overseas are treated in the country.

The ruling comes from a case involving a Syrian man who was separated from his underage “wife” when the pair arrived in Germany as asylum seekers in August 2015, Die Welt reports.

The pair, cousins, were married in February 2015 while the man was aged 21 and the girl aged only 14 in a marriage procedure that was done under sharia legally in Syria but was considered invalid by German authorities where the marriage age was 16 at the time.

After his “wife” had been taken into separate care due to her status as a minor, the Syrian man complained to German courts which initially granted him weekend access to her with a district court claiming the marriage had not been forced.

The case was then sent up to the Federal Supreme Court which has now ruled that the marriage between the pair should be examined on the basis of its legal status in Syria. Such cases in the future should be looked at on an individual basis, the court said, instead of a blanket refusal to recognise them — as was the procedure previously.

In Germany, protection of marriage and family are enshrined in the Basic Law, as well as the principle of equal treatment, and both could be violated under the ban on child marriages…..

The Washington Post writer Jamal Khashoggi was Publishing Radical Islamic Propaganda. When will WaPo apologize?

In 2018 the media has morphed, overtime, from publishing stories that are just untrue to publishing stories that are pure propaganda. It is not because the U.S. government is controlling the media. It is because the media actively supports one world view and is willing to abandon truth in order to influence politics on a global scale.

American singer, songwriter and lead vocalist for the Doors Jim Morrison said, “Whoever controls the media, controls the mind.”

There is a struggle in the Middle East. It is a tribal struggle that has been going on for nearly 1400 years. It is a struggle between Sunni (followers of the sunna, or “way” of Mohammed) and Shia (shi’atu Ali, “partisans of Ali). This struggle has manifested itself countries like Iraq and Syria. It is also a struggle of Islam against non-Islamic nations and peoples. It is a story that few dare to tell for fear of being labeled Islamophobic or worse a racist.

Those who work to tell the truth about what is really happening in Islam have at best self censored and at the worst jointed with the terrorists.

The Washington Post’s op-ed writer Jamal Khashoggi is but one example. When he was killed by agents of Saudi Arabia. Khashoggi was promoted by the media as a martyr. A man killed for his convictions. But what were his convictions?

Who was Khashoggi?

Jamal Khashoggi was a Sunni. Khashoggi was a follower of an Islamic ultra-fundamentalist doctrine and religious movement founded by Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab called Wahhabism. According to the World Shia Forum:

Khashoggi was a leading critic of Saudi Monarchy, a true rebel who wanted nothing else but democracy for Saudi people, he was revolutionary and a defender of Human rights. well, this is what Tom Friedman from NYT or David Ignatius from WaPo would like us to believe, but let us see the truth, Khashoggi was no different than MBS, he was born, raised and educated in the same KSA as Muhammad bin Salman, he served many kings and crown princes before Muhammad bin Salman started consolidating power after his father became the king in early 2015, the Yemen war or as it should be called Yemen Genocide was launched months later by King Salman on the orders of de facto King MBS.

Khashoggi was no different than MBS when it came to Saudi Shias, Yemen, Syria, Bahrain or Iraq. He participated in Afghan war against Soviets, along with other Salafist Saudi Jihadists.

Jamal Khashoggi was as clearly a traditional Wahhabi who hated jews and shia like all good Wahhabis, he justified and celebrated when a Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al Nimr, a Human rights activist from eastern province of Qatif was beheaded by the Saudi regime in January 2015.

Khashoggi the propagandist.

We now learn that Jamal Khashoggi published fake op-eds. Buried in a Washington Post article about Khashoggi’s final months, we find this passage:

Maggie Mitchell Salem. Screen shot CSPAN.

Perhaps most problematic for Khashoggi were his connections to an organization funded by Saudi Arabia’s regional nemesis, Qatar. Text messages between Khashoggi and an executive at Qatar Foundation International show that the executive, Maggie Mitchell Salem, at times shaped the columns he submitted to The Washington Post, proposing topics, drafting material and prodding him to take a harder line against the Saudi government. Khashoggi also appears to have relied on a researcher and translator affiliated with the organization. . . .

Editors at The Post’s opinion section, which is separate from the newsroom, said they were unaware of these arrangements. . . [Emphasis added]

Here is Qatar Foundation International’s Executive Director Maggie Mitchell Salem promoting the #ISpeakArabic Campaign.

When the media portrays a op-ed writer like Jamal Khashoggi as: a rebel they mean terrorist, and a defender of human rights they mean defender of Muslim rights. When the New York Times and Washington Post portray Khashoggi as a revolutionary they mean one who is furthering the most radical form of Islam. The form of Islam that created al Qaeda and ISIS.

Maggie Mitchell Salem and Jamal Khashoggi have the same vision – to make Islam dominate in the world. Sadly, many Western leaders have fallen for this propaganda and have their minds controlled by the media.

Ohio: Muslim who attacked man while screaming “I want to kill all the Jews” convicted of hate crime

The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

Izmir Koch

“Ohio Man Convicted of Hate Crime in Attack Outside Cincinnati Restaurant,” Department of Justice, December 17, 2018 (thanks to Creeping Sharia):

Izmir Koch, 33, of Huber Heights, Ohio, was convicted in U.S. District Court today for assaulting a man because he believed the man was Jewish in violation of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, and of lying to the FBI about his role in the religiously motivated assault.

Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband for the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, Benjamin C. Glassman, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, and Herb Stapleton, Acting Special Agent in Charge, FBI Cincinnati Division, announced the verdict, which was reached today by U.S. District Judge Susan J. Dlott after a bench trial that occurred between Nov. 13 to 15.

According to court documents and testimony, the assault occurred on Feb. 4, 2017, outside a Cincinnati restaurant, when Koch yelled out asking if anyone outside the restaurant was Jewish. The victim responded that he was Jewish and Koch then ran to the victim and punched him in the head. When the victim fell to the ground, Koch and others continued hitting and kicking him, breaking a bone in his face and bruising his ribs. A half-dozen of Koch’s friends joined in the assault. Before and during the assault, the defendant was heard shouting, “I want to kill all of the Jews” and “I want to stab the Jews.” The victim was not in fact Jewish.

After the incident occurred, Koch made a voluntary statement to the FBI, accompanied by his attorney. Koch falsely told the FBI he was not involved in the fight and he had not said anything disparaging about Jews….

Denmark’s migration minister tells Somali Muslims: “Return home and rebuild the country from which you came”

Denmark has admitted many Muslim migrants, but it is also trying to preserve its culture. It has “introduced a series of integration programmes to stop non-Western migrants ghettosing in the Scandinavian peninsula, including telling migrants in high-ethnic neighbourhoods that their children must attend daycare from the age of one to learn Danish values or the parents face losing social security benefits.” And it is also sending migrants back home. Since early 2017, “the Immigration Service began its review of refugee residency permits” and “nearly 1,000 Somalis have had their Danish residency permit revoked.”

Denmark’s migration minister Inger Støjberg has stated:

If you no longer need our protection and your life and health are no longer at risk in your home country, and specifically in Somalia, you must of course return home and rebuild the country from which you came from.

The Danish parliament has also given the go-ahead “to a new policy that will see criminal migrants placed on an uninhabited island before their deportation,” which is a good idea given the spread of jihadi radicalization in Western jails.

Preserving democracy, the rule of law and the stability of society should be the first priority of every European leader.

In October, Ms Støjberg rejected EU efforts to impose migrant quotas, saying “too few contribute” to the workforce — Denmark being known as a country with a high cultural value work ethic.

The failure of numerous Muslim migrants to assimilate and integrate into European culture has proven to be a massive problem. The migrant crisis in Europe — mass rapes, jihad attacks, the rise in antisemitism, no-go zones, sharia patrols, sharia courts, a rise in child marriage, an increase in female genital mutilation, and the like — continues. Under no circumstances should any aspect of Western principles or laws be sacrificed to suit foreign interests, yet this is happening, and increasing since the migrant crisis began. The ongoing assault against the cornerstone of free society, free expression, is also increasing.

Inger Støjberg

“Danish Minister Tells Somalis ‘Go Home and Rebuild Your Country’”, by Victoria Friedman, Breitbart, December 18, 2018:

Denmark’s migration minister Inger Støjberg has told the country’s Somali migrants to return home and work on improving their own country after the Danish government ruled parts of Somalia safe.

Since the Immigration Service began its review of refugee residency permits in early 2017, nearly 1,000 Somalis have had their Danish residency permit revoked, reports the Danish Broadcasting Corporation.

Of those, 516 had been directly granted asylum while another 412 were family members who joined them as through chain migration, also known as “family reunion” or “family reunification”.

“If you no longer need our protection and your life and health are no longer at risk in your home country, and specifically in Somalia, you must of course return home and rebuild the country from which you came from,” Ms Støjberg said.

The automatic right to asylum from countries like Somalia was revoked in Denmark’s 2015 amendment to its Immigration Act.

As a result, the Immigration Service announced in autumn 2016 that it would use the new legal basis to review about 1,200 residence permits given to Somalis because of changes to “general conditions” in parts of their country, whereby “there is no longer a basis for asylum, simply because they come from there”.

Unlike neighbouring Germany and Sweden, Denmark has taken a tough line on asylum and integration since the Syrian conflict sparked Europe’s migrant crisis in 2015.

In October, Ms Støjberg rejected EU efforts to impose migrant quotas, saying “too few contribute” to the workforce — Denmark being known as a country with a high cultural value work ethic.

She is hardly a rogue element in the Danish government, with her rejection of the migrant quota being echoed the following month by the country’s prime minister, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, who said that it was “wrong” to force European Union member states to take asylum seekers…..

Reporter accuses ‘young Trump supporters’ including Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens of calling all Muslims ‘radical’

Note the title below: “Young Trump supporters told they need to fight terrorism on college campuses by ‘exposing Islam’ because all Muslims are ‘radical.” Then note the first line of the report: “Students attending a conservative conference on Thursday were told they needed to ‘expose Islam’ for the ‘ugly thing’ it is.”

Both lines have different meanings.

First of all, I have yet to meet a respected conservative who has categorized all Muslims as “radicals.” This is another example of fake news.

The second sentence about the need to “expose Islam for the ugly thing it is” is not without merit with regard to the Islamically-sanctioned abuses against women, gays, infidels, apostates, etc. Those who doubt this should try arguing with the Ayatollah Khamenei — the Iranian Supreme Leader, the Marja — or the Grand Mufti of Al Azhar, or the Sunni and Shia Islamic schools of jurisprudence.

Leftist arrogance has made Leftists ridiculous, but also a foremost obstacle for those who are trying to preserve freedom and human rights. Such Leftists apparently have no problem with the untold millions murdered in the name of the “ugly thing” that is preached against infidels, women, gays, apostates etc.

It has become habitual for Leftist “journalists” to brazenly lie about conservatives.

Shame on John Haltiwanger and Business Insider for publishing this sham of a report.

“Young Trump supporters told they need to fight terrorism on college campuses by ‘exposing Islam’ because all Muslims are ‘radical,’” by John Haltiwanger, Business Insider, December 21, 2018:

Students attending a conservative conference on Thursday were told they needed to “expose Islam” for the “ugly thing” it is.

The conference was held by Turning Point USA, a conservative advocacy group that has gained significant momentum in the Trump era. Its president and founder, Charlie Kirk, is close friends with Donald Trump Jr. and has met with and been retweeted by President Donald Trump.

Kirk’s communications director, Candace Owens, has made headlines in recent months because of her interactions with the rapper Kanye West and her connection to West’s infamous Oval Office meeting with the president. The publicity Owens got in relation to West helped elevate Turning Point USA’s national stature.

Thursday’s event, part of the conservative advocacy group’s annual Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, Florida, saw closer links to today’s mainstream conservativism than it did a fringe right-wing movement.

Speakers at the conference included the younger Trump, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, the Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, and the British politician Nigel Farage.

Beyond the talks from the main speakers, TPUSA held smaller, breakout sessions hosted by its staff and in some cases other organizations, such as The Heritage Foundation.

Sophia Witt, the director of Israel outreach for Turning Point USA, directed the “F U-nity: Addressing Terrorism on Campuses” session at the conference.

Speaking with several dozen young attendees, Witt decried campus groups that claim solidarity with the Palestinians, singling out a group called Queers for Palestine….

French Journalist gets Rape and Death Threats after Saying ‘Islam has to submit to French laws’

“Islam has to submit to French laws, humour, reason and any form of criticism just like any other ideology, sect or religion.” Yes. All should be accountable to the same laws.

This should be taken for granted by all French authorities as a requirement for living in France and a prerequisite for entering it as an immigrant. But it isn’t. And that is an indication that France is in an advanced state of degeneration, and is likely not to last much longer as anything resembling a free society.

“Woman threatened with murder after saying Islam should submit to French laws and criticism,” Voice of Europe, December 21, 2018 (thanks to the Geller Report):

Moroccan-French journalist Zineb El Rhazoui says she has received death and rape threats for saying “innoccous” [sic] things like: “Islam has to submit to French laws, humour, reason and any form of criticism just like any other ideology, sect or religion”.

According to the former cartoonist of Charlie Hebdo “There is no valid reason for Islam to be an exception”.

Morocco: Muslims who murdered Scandinavian girls say killings were ‘Allah’s will,’ victims were ‘enemies of Allah’

Not that this has anything to do with…

“This morning, Denmark’s prime minister said the killings can be considered ‘politically motivated and thus an act of terror’. Lars Loekke Rasmussen said that ‘there are still dark forces that want to fight our values’ and ‘we must not give in.’”

But we don’t dare identify what exactly those dark forces are, eh, Lars?

“Ms Ueland’s mother, Irene, told Norwegian broadcaster NRK: ‘Her priority was safety. The girls had taken all precautionary measures before embarking on this trip.’”

Except that it no doubt didn’t even occur to them that what they thought they knew about Morocco’s religion and culture might be inaccurate and designed to whitewash Islam, leaving them ill-informed about a threat that they actually did end up facing.

“An anti-terrorism rally is planned for Morocco’s capital on Saturday.”

Oh good, that will fix everything.

More on this story. “‘It’s Allah’s will’: Fanatics branded two Scandinavian women the ‘enemies of God’ as they filmed themselves decapitating one of the tourists in Morocco – then posted video pledging allegiance to ISIS,” by Jake Wallis Simons and Julian Robinson, MailOnline, December 20, 2018 (thanks to Robert):

Suspected ISIS terrorists branded two Scandinavian women the ‘enemies of God’ as they filmed themselves decapitating one of the tourists in Morocco.

Maren Ueland, 28, from Norway, and Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, from Denmark, were found dead near the village of Imlil in Morocco’s High Atlas mountains on Monday.

A video showing the murder of one of the women has been recognised as genuine, Danish intelligence service said today adding that the killings can be connected to ISIS.

Men in the gruesome clip can be heard shouting ‘it’s Allah’s will’ while there are claims that the words ‘this is for Syria’ were used, in an apparent reference to Western bombing missions in the war-torn country.

Separate footage online appears to show four men suspected of carrying out the attack pledging their alliance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

It comes as a picture emerged showing a series of fearsome knives found on a bus in Marrakesh as three suspects were arrested over the atrocity. Yesterday, a fourth man was held, suspected of belonging to an Islamic extremist group….

Meanwhile, preliminary investigations of a video shared on social media purporting to show the killing of one of the tourists had found that it was shot in a different place from where the bodies were found, a police source told Reuters.

‘The video and preliminary investigation according to the Moroccan authorities indicate that the killings may be related to the terrorist organisation Islamic State,’ the Danish intelligence service said in a statement.

‘This is a case of an unusually bestial killing of two totally innocent young women,’ it said.

This morning, Denmark’s prime minister said the killings can be considered ‘politically motivated and thus an act of terror’. Lars Loekke Rasmussen said that ‘there are still dark forces that want to fight our values’ and ‘we must not give in.’

Witnesses said that three men from Marrakesh were seen camping close to the women, and local media had earlier reported that sexual assault may have been the motive for the crime.

They were filmed fleeing the scene between 2am and 3am on Monday, on a camera belonging to another camper.

On Wednesday, police arrested a man from the city whose identity card was found at the murder scene….

Ms Ueland’s mother, Irene, told Norwegian broadcaster NRK: ‘Her priority was safety. The girls had taken all precautionary measures before embarking on this trip.’

An anti-terrorism rally is planned for Morocco’s capital on Saturday.

Just in Time for Hanukkah, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Remembers Her Jewish Roots [Part One]

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the much-ballyhooed new — and at 29, the youngest ever — member of the House of Representatives, recently announced, at a celebration in Queens on the last day of Hanukkah, that she has Jewish — Sephardic — ancestry. She claims that she is a descendant of Sephardic Jews who fled Spain during the Inquisition, and made it to Puerto Rico. How many Sephardic Jews there are in her family tree, and what percentage of her ancestry, is “Sephardic Jewish,” she did not make public. Only she and ancestry.com — or some similar group — know for sure.

Why, one wonders, did she raise this only now? Why not have mentioned it when running for Congress from New York, to appeal to some Jewish voters, and to try to immunize herself from criticism for the ill-informed remarks about Israel that she made during an interview with Margaret Hoover of Firing Line on July 18?

For let us remember what Ocasio-Cortez, a self-styled “progressive” — a word which nowadays, alas, often suggests a palpable want of sympathy for Israel — said in that interview on July 18. She described Israel’s presence in the West Bank as an “occupation.” That word implies that Israel has no claim to the West Bank, save as a military occupier. This would put the West Bank on the same level as Occupied Japan (to which the United States made no permanent claim), Occupied France (to which Nazi Germany had only the claim of military conqueror), or Occupied Berlin, divided into four sectors under the control of  the United States, Britain, France, and the Soviet Union, with all four countries seen as temporary military occupiers, having no permanent claim on Berlin.

But Israel’s claim to the West Bank is not solely, or even mainly, that of a military occupier. It has two separate and very strong claims to all of the land on the west side of the Jordan River.. The first claim is based on the Mandate for Palestine itself. The entire territory of the West Bank (as the Jordanians deliberately renamed those parts of Judea and Samaria that they held at the end of the 1948-49 war) was originally included in the territory allocated to the Mandate for Palestine, which had been created for the sole purpose of establishing the Jewish National Home. It was well understood that eventually that Jewish National Home would become the Jewish state. The only reason the entire West Bank was not originally included in the new state of Israel is that the Jordanian army managed to hold onto part of it when hostilities ended in 1949. Had Israel been in possession of all of the West Bank at the end of those hostilities, that would have been the end of the matter. The Jordanian claim, unlike that of Israel, was based only on it being a military occupier of part of the  West Bank from 1949 to 1967. By their military victory in 1967, the Israelis were at long last able to enforce their pre-existing legal claim, which had been established in1922, by the provisions of the Mandate itself.

A second, and independent claim, to the West Bank by Israel is that which arises out of the language of U.N. Security Council Resolution 242. That resolution, as its author Lord Caradon, the British ambassador to the U.N., repeatedly made clear, did not require Israel to return all of the territory it had won in the “recent conflict” (the Six-Day War of June 1967). Lord Caradon described Israel’s pre-1967 lines as  impermanent armistice lines, reflecting only where the Israeli and Arab troops were located at that moment when the armistice went into effect. He further described those lines as “a rotten border,” and for good measure added “you couldn’t have a worse line for a permanent international boundary.” In other words, there should be no forcing Israel back into the1949 armistice lines. Despite Lord Cardamon’s insistence on the meaning of the resolution, the Arab states kept trying to claim that Resolution 242 required Israel to withdraw “from all the territories” it had just seized. Lord Cardamon said, heatedly, that the Resolution most definitely did not mean that; if he had intended to mean that he would have written it that way; he deliberately wrote instead “from territories” taken in the recent conflict.

Belgium: Amid violent protests, Prime Minister resigns over his support for UN migration pact

Belgium is descending into chaos; the UN Migration Pact has caused a crisis in the nation. The country’s Prime Minister Charles Michel has now quit after losing a vote of no confidence.

“Demonstrators clashed with riot police and targeted the EU Commission’s Berlaymont headquarters, which suffered several smash [sic] windows.” Critics, “including former Belgian immigration minister Theo Francken, argue that the agreement will increase migration to Europe.”

The upheaval in Belgium comes as a result of the concern and frustration of citizens who have been left in the dark, but are astute enough to oppose and ask questions about the UN Migration Pact. Some of those protesting “said the public should have been consulted before adopting the migration pact.” This should be the demand of every prudent Western citizen.

Some considerations about the UN Migration Pact: it stipulates that migration is a human right. Recall the flood of Muslim migrants into Western European countries including Germany, France, Sweden and the UK, and the crisis of crime that followed. Many people noted that many, if not most, of the migrants were not refugees at all, but economic migrants. But soon this became clear to all honest observers, given the flocking of the migrants to the wealthier European countries — as opposed to seeking refuge from persecution and war in the first nation to which they arrived.

The rise of so-called “populist” movements helped to educate a largely ignorant public that had been virtually ambushed. Globalists then decided to try to protect the flow of economic migrants by designating it a “human right” for migrants to swarm into Western countries. To sign on to the UN Migration Pact means an acceptance of indiscriminate, open-door migration. The countries that have signed on have also committed themselves to helping these economic migrants actually choose the country that they think best serves their needs, and settle there.

Left unmentioned are all the costs associated with the plan: health-care, resources to help migrants, and the security costs of host countries, which are bound to increase, given what we have already seen across Europe since the migrant crisis began. The Pact also puts migrants at the front of the line for a range of state benefits and services. What are the immediate and long-term implications of all this for patriotic citizens, including those immigrants who have settled into Western states through legal means and have respected and obeyed the laws of their host societies?

The UN Migration Pact also demands a commitment from participating states to “eliminate all forms of discrimination, condemn and counter expressions, acts and manifestations of racism, racial discrimination, violence, xenophobia and related intolerance against all migrants in conformity with international human rights law.” Citizens of Western countries are given no indication of what form such a commitment would take. Given Canada’s anti-Islamophobia Motion M-103 and the aggressive efforts by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to criminalize speech that offends Islam, this is worrying. The freedom of speech in the West has long been hanging by a thread. Also, there is a little-discussed Turkish influence in the Pact that should give everyone pause.

It is good that Michel is gone. We may hope that the citizens of many other countries in the West awaken to the globalist agenda and the dangers of the UN Global Compact on Migration before it’s too late.

“BELGIUM CHAOS: Prime Minister RESIGNS as UN migrant pact crisis ERUPTS,” Harvey Gavin, Express, December 18, 2018:

BELGIUM’S Prime Minister Charles Michel has quit after losing a vote of no confidence, Belgian media reports.

Mr Michel was forced to reshuffle his government to avert its collapse after Flemish nationalist party the N-VA pulled their support in protest over Belgium’s decision to adopt a controversial UN Migration pact. King Philippe of Belgium allowed Mr Michel to continue with a minority government, which agreed to the United Nation’s Global Compact on Migration. The decision to adopt the pact sparked violent protests in the Belgian capital, Brussels, on Sunday, amid fears it could lead to an increase in immigration.

Demonstrators clashed with riot police and targeted the EU Commission’s Berlaymont headquarters, which suffered several smash [sic] windows.

The UN pact was agreed in July by all 193 UN members except the US, but only 164 formally adopted it at a meeting last Monday in Morocco

It sets out a series of non-binding guidelines aimed at improving global cooperation on migration, combating people trafficking and protecting the human rights of migrants.

But critics, including former Belgian immigration minister Theo Francken, argue that the agreement will increase migration to Europe.

Some of those protesting in Sunday’s demonstrations said the public should have been consulted before adopting the migration pact.

Ten countries, mostly in formerly Communist Eastern Europe, have since pulled out of the pact.

Hungary’s right-wing leader Viktor Orban has previously branded it a “threat to the world” while Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said he would not sign up in order to “defend its national sovereignty”….
