Rightist party that made Auschwitz joke wins Polish Parliament

WARSAW (JTA) — A Polish rightist party that stirred controversy with xenophobic remarks about Muslims and Jews by some of its representatives won the parliamentary election in Poland.

The Law and Justice party emerged as Poland’s largest with 39 percent of the vote, according to results published Monday.

Jan Gross, a Polish-born American Jewish historian and sociologist, told JTA the results were “a big disappointment to those who err on the side of tolerance in Poland,” and “risked entrenching the monolithic tendencies in Polish society, to the detriment of minorities.”

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, a Law and Justice leader, said during the campaign that refugees from the Middle East were bringing diseases like cholera and dysentery to Europe. Many of the refugees are Muslims.

Israeli warplanes have carried out airstrikes on areas in the south and center of the besieged Gaza Strip.  

The late Monday raids on the Palestinian coastal enclave followed reports of an alleged rocket attack from Gaza on southern Israel earlier in the day.

“A rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip at southern Israel and landed in an open area,” the Israeli army said in a statement, adding that its fighter jets later pounded two alleged sites of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas in the southern and central part of Gaza.

There have been no reports of damages or casualties for the alleged rocket attack from Gaza.

According to Palestinian sources, the Israeli air raids targeted two communications antennas used by Hamas.

Israeli forces shoot seven bullets at a Palestinian youth in al-Corantina square in al-Khalil (Hebron) on Oct 26, 2015

Israeli forces have killed two more Palestinians in the occupied West Bank as the death toll of Israeli violence against Palestinians rises.

A girl was killed by Israeli forces on Monday at an Israeli checkpoint at the Haram al-Ibrahimi in the city of al-Khalil, also known as Hebron.

The Israeli forces at the checkpoint shot eight bullets at the girl and watched her pass away.

They claimed the girl had made an attempt to stab an Israeli soldier with a knife.

In a separate incident on the same day, Israeli forces shot seven bullets at a Palestinian youth in al-Khalil’s al-Corantina square over similar allegations.

An Israeli settler has attacked and injured a young Palestinian man in the northern part of the occupied West Bank as tensions between Israeli military forces and settlers on the one side and Palestinian protesters on the other continue unabated.

Palestinian medical sources, requesting anonymity, said on Monday that a Palestinian youth sustained slight injuries in the arm after an Israeli settler stabbed him near Kifl Haris, located six kilometers (3.7 miles) west of the Palestinian city of Salfit, on Sunday evening.

The development came only hours after Israeli forces shot and killed a 17-year-old Palestinian girl, identified as Dania Irsheid, near the Ibrahimi Mosque in al-Khalil (Hebron), situated 30 kilometers (19 miles) south of al-Quds (Jerusalem).

An unnamed Israeli police spokesperson claimed the teenage girl was shot dead after Israeli soldiers saw “a knife in her hand.”

An eyewitness said Israeli soldiers surrounded the young Palestinian woman as she was lying on the ground bleeding. They refused to give the woman any first aid before an ambulance arrived and took her way.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) says Israeli soldiers “kidnapped” over 1,000 Palestinians in the occupied West Bank in October.

The Palestinian body, which represents detainees and their families, said on Sunday that most of the arrests took place in the city of al-Khalil (Hebron), located in the occupied East al-Quds Jerusalem.

They were mostly transferred to prisons, the PPS said, adding that the arrests were made after the Israeli extremists and soldiers intensified their attacks on Palestinian territories.

Over three hundred of those put behind bars this month are minors, the PPS said.

Qadoura Fares, the head of the PPS, said that, “The Israeli soldiers have lately focused their attention on the protesting Palestinians in both al-Khalil and Jerusalem, al-Quds which are hosting the settlers. We think that even if the uprising comes down, Israel’s arrest campaign will continue as it is part of Israel’s policy towards the Palestinians.”

The flooding of Europe by countless waves of refugees may be the result of the “strategic depopulation” of Syria carried out by opponents of the country’s government, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has suggested. TrendsEU refugee & migrant influx, Syria unrest

Transparency organization WikiLeaks has looked through its diplomatic cables and unearthed “an interesting speculation about the refugee movement,” Assange said in an interview with Geek news site, ThePressProject.

“So, the speculation was this: Occasionally opponents of a country would engage in strategic depopulation, which is to decrease the fighting capacity of a government,” he explained.

The whistleblower pointed out that “it’s predominantly the middle class that is fleeing” Syria on account of having “language skills, money, some connections.” Engineers, managers and civil servants are “precisely, the classes that …[are] needed to keep the government functioning,” he said.

Tony Blair apologises for Iraq War: The former PM’s mind has been paralysed by what happened in 2003

Blair has an arrogant inability to admit he was mistaken

What is striking about Tony Blair’s latest comments about his role in the Iraq War is how little he had learnt about the country in the 12 years since the invasion. It could be added, however, that his accusers have not learned much either.

He conflates two events that should be looked at separately. He says that he does not apologise for removing Saddam Hussein: one could argue that most Iraqis wanted this to bring an end to Saddam’s disastrous rule at that time. But the US and Britain then went on to occupy Iraq and it was the war against the occupation, waged separately by Sunni and Shia, that destroyed the country and enabled al-Qaeda to gain its first foothold there.

More than 10,000 PEGIDA activists took to the streets of Dresden in the wake of the latest plan to establish an additional 100,000 places in refugee reception centers in the EU and the Balkans.

The movement continues to speak out against the uncontrolled refugee flow and what it perceives to be the “Islamization” of Europe.

PEGIDA (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the Occident) supporters gathered for a “great evening stroll” to convene at the theater square, Sachsische Zeitung reported. Activists accompanied by police marched with flags and a placard depicting Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel wearing hijab.

20,000 Israelis sue Facebook for ignoring Palestinian incitement

NEW YORK (JTA) — A class-action lawsuit against Facebook is accusing the social media platform of ignoring widespread Palestinian posts calling for violence against Jews.

In the suit filed Monday in New York State Supreme Court in Brooklyn, the 20,000 Israeli plaintiffs claim the Facebook posts have inspired many recent terror attacks and that “Facebook’s algorithms and platform connects inciters to terrorists who are further encouraged to perpetrate stabbings and other violence attacks against Israelis.”

According to a news release issued by the plaintiffs, many recent assailants “were motivated to commit their heinous crimes by incitement to murder they read on Facebook — demagogues and leaders exhorting their followers to ‘slaughter the Jews,’ and offering instruction as to the best manner to do so, including even anatomical charts showing the best places to stab a human being.”

The suit alleges that Facebook has a “legal and moral obligation” to block much of this content but that it chooses not to.

Two of the victims sustained minor injuries in the Oct. 9 attack; the others were moderately injured.

The teen told officers during questioning that he stabbed his victims because “all Arabs are terrorists.”

How GOP bogeyman Sidney Blumenthal advised Clinton on Israel

Ron Kampeas analyzes Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Why? Well, the star witness was Hillary Rodham Clinton — the secretary of state at the time of the attack, whom Blumenthal has advised for years. Republicans on the committee alleged that when it came to Libya, Clinton relied on her old (and liberal) adviser for counsel to the exclusion of the professionals who worked for her at the State Department.

(Vox has gone into great detail on how Blumenthal earned his status as a bogeyman to the GOP.)

Democrats — with more evidence — sought to portray the hearing, the eighth on Benghazi, as part of a GOP crusade aimed at derailing Clinton’s Democratic presidential campaign.
