Germany: Child Asylum seeker finds sanctuary in Sweden after raping child.

(Berlin)  The murky convoluted world of fake asylum seekers has been fully exposed in Germany (again) after a so called 14 year old Afghan asylum seeker (claimed to be 12 when he entered Germany in 2016)  buggered off to Sweden in which to claim asylum after he was found to have raped Emily the 4 year old child of the foster family in Berlin who adopted him.

It transpires that Ahmed M who decided to play doctors and nurses with the little girl after he was left alone with her last year was noted for how tall he was, the fact that he had the beginnings of a moustache and was seriously doubted over his claim to be just 13 at the time of the alleged abuse of the girl however prosecutor Corinna Gögge rejected a plea from Emily's father to force him to undergo a test to determine his age. 

Anyway not happy how he he had been exposed for his peccadilloes towards little girls, Ahmed, packed his bags and relocated to Sweden, where he claimed to be a year younger. The Swedes  being f-ing stupid, have granted him asylum and have refused to acknowledge a request from the girls father for Ahmed to be investigated.

Thailand: Market bomb kills 3, injures 22

(Yala) A motorcycle bomb has killed three people and wounded many others at a market in Thailand's insurgency-hit south, police reported:

"The suspects parked the motorcycle in front of a stall selling pork in downtown Yala ... it detonated 10 minutes later killing three civilians and wounding 19 others,"
Whilst the death toll in 2017 from the Islamic insurgency in the south of the country was the lowest in 13 years of conflict as peace talks edged forwards and the Thai junta boosted its security lock down on the region.Monday's bomb at a packed market in Yala town popular with Buddhists and Muslims suggests a return to attacks on civilian targets.

Belgium, Netherlands to supplement UNRWA funds cut by U.S.

The same UNRWA that employs Hamas members who build tunnels under and store rockets in the UNRWA-run schools.
(JPost) The Netherlands and Belgium pledged a total of $38 million for the UN agency that provides aid to Palestinians following US funding cuts of $110 million.

Belgium’s government pledged $23.3 million in extra funding for UNRWA and the Dutch government said it would fast-track another $15 million in funding.

The United States announced its cuts on Thursday. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters that a $45 million payment pledged for the UNRWA food aid program would not go through for the time being. Earlier this week, the US said it would freeze $65 million pledged to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, transferring only $60 million.

According to UNRWA, the United States provided more than $350 million in aid to the organization in 2017.
 And here is the reason why:
In the Netherlands, International Aid Minister Sigrid Kaag, who used to work for UNRWA and is married to a Palestinian former Cabinet minister, said she would make available immediately her country’s annual budget of $15 million for UNRWA, which was planned to be dispensed in several payments.

Three lawmakers, including one from the ruling People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy, submitted questions to Kaag in parliament this week about the decision.

“Why are you fast-tracking funding for UNRWA when there are so many potential groups with urgent needs?” they asked.
The only reason.
Israel has accused UNRWA institutions of harboring terrorist activities against Israel. In October, a Hamas tunnel was discovered under a UNRWA-run school in the Gaza Strip. Israel has also accused UNRWA teachers of using anti-Semitic and anti-Israel textbooks. And Israel has charged that UNRWA’s definition of refugee perpetuates Palestinian intransigence and suffering.


Turkey invades Syria – tanks and soldiers cross the border

(Daily Star) TURKISH military forces are invading Syria after pounding the war-torn country with airstrikes.

Forces entered the country's Afrin province today just 24 hours after pounding the region with airstrikes.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim reportedly said they are targeting US-backed Kurdish fighters.

Shocking pictures show dozens of tanks and armoured vehicles crossing over the border in a terrifying display of military might.

But the Syrian-Kurdish YPG militia has denied there is a full-scale invasion underway, claiming forces clashed in Afrin but Turkish soldiers were beaten back.

YPG official, Nouri Mahmoudi, said "all the Turkish military's ground attacks against Afrin have been repelled so far and they have been forced to retreat."

A statement from the militia said: "Our people are holding on to their land and do not accept surrender... we repeat our determination to protect our people in Afrin against the attacks."

Turkey has claimed the massive movement of military hardware into the country is simply to create a 30km-deep "safe zone" in the north of the country.

It came just hours after Turkey launches airstrikes in Afrin, with the military claiming it had hit 153 targets so far, including shelters and hideouts used by Kurdish militants.

But the YPG – which is backed by the United States but classed as a terrorist organisation by Turkey – said they had killed six civilians and three of its fighters.

Turkey has dubbed the action "Operation Olive Branch", which has seen them carry out relentless airstrikes yesterday.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan's spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin, wrote on Twitter: "In its second day, OliveBranchOperation continues to ensure peace and security for our people, protect Syria's territorial integrity and eliminate all terrorist elements in the region.

"Turkey expects its allies to support its fight against terrorism in all of its forms."

Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency reported that four rockets fired from Syria hit the border town of Kilis overnight, damaging houses. Turkish security forces then retaliated, it said.

The operation pits Turkey against Kurdish fighters allied to the US at a time when ties between Ankara and Washington – NATO allies and members of the coalition against ISIS – reach breaking point.

Turkey sees the YPG as an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which has carried out a deadly, three-decade insurgency in Turkey's mainly Kurdish southeast.

But the US is backing the YPG in Syria, seeing it as an effective partner in the fight against ISIS.

Gaza: Palestinian family executes own member for collaborating with Israel

This comes on the hills of UN being upset at how the US has cut funding to the warmongering Palestinians.
(INN) A Gazan family said on Friday it had killed one of its relatives, claiming he had helped Israel track down and kill three senior Hamas terrorists, including one of the man’s own kinsmen.

In a statement quoted by Yediot Aharonot, the family of Ahmed Barhoum said it had shot him in the city of Rafah after they were told by Hamas that he had provided information to Israel.

This, the statement said, guided an Israeli air strike during the 2014 Gaza war that targeted the Hamas terrorists.

“In light of our religious and moral commitment we have executed the collaborator Ahmed Barhoum after he was handed over by the resistance factions,” the statement said.

The family said they had listened to their relative’s confession and saw the evidence against him. The Barhoums are one of Rafah’s largest families and well known for their closeness to Palestinian Arab terrorist groups.

Hamas issued a statement praising the Barhoum family’s action as illustrating “its nobleness and deep affiliation with the (anti-Israel) resistance”, according to Yediot Aharonot.

The Israeli military declined to comment.

Israel killed the three Hamas' senior commanders—Rafah Division commander Raed al-Attar, Southern Division commander Mohammed Abu Shmallah and Rafah Division senior commander Mohammed Barhoum—in an air strike in August of 2014.

The targeted killing was a joint operation of the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and the IDF.

While it is unusual to hear of a family executing their own member over alleged “collaboration” with Israel, it is not unusual that such “spies” are executed in Gaza.

Hamas regularly claims to have captured “Israeli spies”, and many times it tries them and sentences them to death.

In theory all execution orders in the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) territories must be approved by PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas, who is based in Ramallah and who imposed a moratorium on executions several years ago.

Hamas no longer recognizes Abbas’s legitimacy, and has in the past emphatically declared that the death penalty in Gaza can be carried out without his consent.

In April, the group hanged three men accused of collaborating with Israel in the killing of senior Hamas commander Mazen Faqha.
