“When I see Mexican flags waved at pro-immigration demonstrations, I sometimes feel a flush of patriotic resentment. When I’m forced to use a translator to communicate with the guy fixing my car, I feel a certain frustration.”

So @thetimes can have a headline saying ‘Muslim Migrants Behind Rise In Antisemitism’ but if we suggest they are behind the rise in any other crime, it’s hate speech and illegal to say in places like France?
Remember, it’s okay to defend Jews and homosexuals. But if you make an analogous argument in defense of Europeans, you’re a Nazi.
A 17-year-old girl was sexually assaulted on three separate occasions by up to five men in the space of an hour on her walk home, Metropolitan Police have said.
The Met believes the victim was attacked three times between around 23:55 hrs on Friday, September 29th, up to around 00:55 hrs on Saturday, September 30th, after she became separated from her friends after visiting a nightclub in Tower Hamlets, East London.
Two of the three assaults are considered “very serious sexual assaults”. Detectives said it is possible she was drugged, and investigators are carrying out toxicology tests.
She was trying to get home to central London when she was attacked in quick succession by suspects designated by police as 1, 2, and 3. So far, police have only been able to obtain clear CCTV footage of suspects 2 and 3; footage of suspect 1 is of too poor quality to be released, but he was described as wearing dark clothing.
An array of liberal Jewish groups has signed on to letters to 29 mayors urging them to denounce planned “anti-sharia” marches this weekend.
“Timed during the Islamic month of Ramadan, when Muslims around the world fast during the daylight hours, these protests have been disingenuously branded ‘March Against Sharia’ and explicitly target Muslims at a time when hatred and bigotry has swept the nation,” said the letters, which went out Thursday to the mayors of cities including Atlanta, Boston, Houston, Indianapolis, New York and Orlando.
Sharia refers to Muslim religious law.

Allowing voluntary segregation, call in “Pan-Nationalism”, will give people the security from which they can make inquiries into the unknown and foreign. It will improve communication, peace, and harmony.
This is not a controversial idea. The idea of self determination is embedded in many of the pivotal documents and declarations of history, including the Treaty of Versailles, Wilson’s 14 Points, and the Declaration of Independence.
It only seems radical because of a very small, very loud group of neo-Marxists.
Counterintuitively, he finds that breaking down group boundaries to increase the spread of knowledge across populations may ultimately result in less-effective knowledge sharing. Instead, his research shows that best practices and complex ideas are more readily integrated across populations if some degree of group boundaries is preserved.
The findings suggest that a policy to increase integration in the workplace by doing away with ethnically affiliated clubs, for example, could actually reduce the likelihood that ideas and beliefs would be shared across the company. The work has implications for institutional attempts to increase diversity, businesses’ efforts to spread shared values and organizations interested in integrating solutions to complex problems.
Leipzig was last Thursday shaken by an unusual brutal rape in the middle of the East German city. It was in the popular park Rosental that a man in full daylight attacked a woman in her fifties, then raped her and in other ways abused her so brutally that she afterwards had to be admitted for emergency surgery in the hospital, German Stern reports.
The police report clarifies that the victim, who was jogging, was thrown to the ground and repeatedly kicked in the face, then dragged away to a nearby field where the rape was carried out.
