Sweden is generous to migrants, while its pensioners turn to soup kitchens

While migrants get a lot of things for free, more and more Swedish pensioners testify that they struggle to make ends meet. Many of them are therefore visiting soup kitchens.

In newspaper articles and social media, pensioners tell of difficult circumstances. In a reader’s letter in the magazine Hemmets Veckotidning, the pensioner Anna wrote about her situation and asked the editorial team for advice:

“I have a fistula in my palate since a year back. The dentist said it’s because I have a dead tooth and he wants to pull it out. But because of my low pension, I can’t afford it. The dental nurse tried to persuade me to obtain the money, because it was “dangerous” if it was not fixed. Is it because of the bacteria that might affect the heart?”

Ancient cathedral plans to install a 40ft helter skelter... to reverse the slide in visits

Congregation numbers across the country are already spiralling downwards.

So plans by a cathedral to introduce a helter skelter to boost visitors could be seen as, well... an ironic twist.

The 40ft traditional fairground ride will be installed in the western end of the nave at Norwich Cathedral in August.

PETER OBORNE: Why I think the Tories' Invisible Man will be the next PM

They won’t admit it in public, of course, but several Cabinet ministers are flexing themselves to stand as the next Tory leader whenever Theresa May decides to step down.

The PM herself put them on standby after foolishly signalling that her days in No 10 are numbered by making it clear she won’t lead the party into the next General Election.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid openly covets the top job. Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt would like to be PM one day but is more discreet about his ambitions.

Bizarre moment Jean-Claude Juncker is seen ruffling a woman's hair before claiming he had 'kissed' and made up with Theresa May following confrontation over him calling her 'nebulous' and 'imprecise'

Jean-Claude Juncker was captured ruffling a woman's hair as he arrived at the European Council summit today before claiming he had 'kissed' and made up with Theresa May following a confrontation.

Bizarre footage captured the EU commission president walking up to Pernilla Sjölin - the EU's deputy head of protocol - and erratically running his hands through her hair before kissing her cheek.

Shortly afterwards Mr Juncker brushed off his extraordinary confrontation with Theresa May - insisting they ended up 'kissing' after he explained he had not insulted her by calling her 'nebulous' and 'imprecise' .

The PM and the EU commission president had a 'robust' showdown in the full glare of cameras as she demanded to know why he had branded her with those words in a late-night press conference.

But as the summit in Brussels drew to a close this evening, Mr Juncker insisted Mrs May is a 'great friend' and the incident was down to a misunderstanding.

Anonymous Hacktivists Release New Part of UK Integrity Initiative Project Docs

Previously, several websites linked to the hacker group Anonymous published documents stolen from the Integrity Initiative – a UK-based company, claiming to be devoted to combating "propaganda and disinformation", but mostly focusing on targeting Russia. The documents revealed that the Initiative had been massively funded by London.

Hackers, allegedly tied to the group Anonymous, published a second batch of documents related to the activities of the Integrity Initiative on 14 December 2018. According to them, not only was the Initiative acting in Europe and Canada, but in the UK itself, allegedly leading a campaign against Labour Party chief Jeremy Corbyn on Twitter.

"Well-coordinated efforts of the Anonymous from all over the world have forced the UK politicians to react to the unacceptable and in fact illegal activity of the British government that uses public money to carry out misinformation campaigns not only in the EU, US and Canada but in the UK as well", the release said.

'Insanity Continues': Users on Germany's Law Legalising Third GenderCC0EUROPE

People who were born with distinctive male or female features will still be registered as usual. They will be able to change it later, although it will require medical examination proving the need for a gender change in documents. Lawmaker from Christian Democratic Union Marc Henrichmann, cited by the DPA commented on the matter by saying that the "official civil register must be based on evidence rather than self-assessments".

The EU heads of state had two subjects on the table at their Thursday meeting — the EU long-term budget for 2021-2027 and mainly Brexit. On Friday, the summit has been dealing with immigration, "fighting disinformation," single market and external relations.

The eurozone difficulties, notably with the Italian and now French budgets out of pace, has also been on the agenda.

The EU summit has come to the conclusion that there is no basis for cancellation or easing of sanctions against Russia, German Chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters.

Macron to Yellow Vests Protesters Ahead of Expected Rally: 'Calm Down'

French President Emmanuel Macron has held a press conference on the second day of the European Council's summit in Brussels.

Macron's address comes as the protests organised by the Yellow Vests movement in France are poised to enter their fifth week on Saturday despite the fact that the government had agreed to cancel the fuel tax hike and raise the minimum wage in line with the demonstrators' demands.

"The country needs calm, it needs order, it needs to find a normal functioning", Emmanuel Macron stated at the press conference in Brussels when asked whether he planned to call on the protest movement's participants to avoid taking part in Saturday's rally.

NATO Troops in Kosovo Conduct Military Drills on Its Roads

NATO forces have been present in Kosovo since 1999 as a part of an operation to put an end to the conflict between Kosovo Albanians and the Federal Yugoslav Army and police. Following the end of the NATO campaign, some of the alliance’s forces remained in Kosovo after it emerged as a partially recognised state.

The NATO-led Kosovo Force (KFOR) has launched military drills on the main roads of Kosovo and Metohija amid the announcement that the Kosovo Security Force will be transformed into a full-fledged national army. The drills are being conducted to improve the battle readiness of KFOR and its ability "prevent any threat to safety and security", the NATO command in Kosovo stated.

In the video, published on KFOR's Facebook page, NATO armoured transport vehicles and trucks can be seen travelling along major roads in Kosovo.

French Police Use Tear Gas on 5th Week of Yellow Vests' Protests

France has already seen four weekends of unrest after thousands took to the streets in Paris to protest high fuel prices. As demonstrations turned violent, the protestors smashed store windows and set cars on fire, prompting police to use tear gas and water cannons.

France is bracing for unrest as the Yellow Vests have been holding a rally— called Acte 5: Macron Démission (Act 5: Macron's Resignation) — for the fifth weekend, with 70,000 police officers being mobilised ahead of the demonstrations.

According to the organisers of the protests, this weekend the Yellow Vests are rallying "for social justice and tax, for a real democracy, for equal rights, for a true ecological transition."

MARRAKECH PACT ON MIGRATION (Letter to the President of the Republic, on the initiative of General Martinez)

Mister President,

You are about to sign the "Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration" on 10 and 11 December, which establishes a genuine right to migration. It may impose itself on our national legislation through pre-existing treaties or the principle of common responsibility set out in this pact.

It seems to us that the only sovereignty that will remain with France will consist in freely setting the way in which the objectives of the pact will have to be implemented. You can not give up this new part of the national sovereignty without a public debate whereas 80% of the French population considers that it is necessary to stop or regulate drastically the immigration. By deciding alone to sign this pact, you would add an additional reason for revolt to the anger of an already battered people. You would be guilty of a denial of democracy or treason against the nation.

'Mayhem' & 'Revolution' If Brexit Not Delivered - Yellow Vests UK Tell Sputnik

Yellow vest-wearing activists took to the streets of London on Friday, blocking traffic and chanting pro-Brexit slogans. They spoke to Sputnik about their mistrust in politicians and hopes for a clean exit from the European Union.

An activist told Sputnik they voted for Brexit because they wanted to reclaim control of their own country.

"We don't want to be part of the federal European superstate that's going to erode our rights and take away democracy. This is Britain. We are not European. We have never been European. This is our land and we are taking it back. If the political class don't like it, they will see a revolution like they've never seen before. It is time to take up the spirit of Oliver Cromwell, rise up and reclaim what's rightfully ours," a protester told Sputnik.

Suppression orders in Australia: why you can't read what you may want to

A suppression order is made when a court prohibits the disclosure of information about a legal case.

These are ordered in Australia for a variety of reasons – in the interest of national security, to protect the safety of witnesses, or to guarantee a fair trial.

They can be wide-ranging, clamping down on nearly all – and at times all – information about a trial, or narrow, obscuring just one person’s name.

North Korea's high-tech pursuits: Propaganda or progress?

North Korea often flaunts its military hardware but of late, it appears to be making progress in developing civilian technologies - or at least is claiming to be.

As with most things in the country, it is difficult to verify these claims, but it is significant to note the importance being given to technology.

In recent months, state media have publicly celebrated various achievements in advanced technologies, including an "intelligent home system".

Beyond the purpose of propaganda, emphasis on the sector reflects North Korea's desire to harness technology to improve its economy - a key goal for Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BBC is trying to take a story of North Korea's progress and spin it as a negative.

As West Bank violence continues, Netanyahu calls for settlement expansion, punitive demolition of Palestinian homes

The ripple effects of Thursday’s outburst of violence in the occupied West Bank continued to be felt on Friday, as Palestinians woke up to news of more arrests, clashes, and plans of collective punishment by the Israeli government.

Between Wednesday night and Thursday afternoon, Israeli forces had shot and killed four Palestinians in separate incidents, while two Israeli soldiers were killed by a still unidentified Palestinian shooter, all in and around the central West Bank district of Ramallah.

By Thursday afternoon, Israeli forces had enforced vast closures across the central and northern West Bank, heavily deploying troops at checkpoints, major highways, and inside Palestinian towns and cities.

60% of the 10,500 protesters treated for injuries in Gaza were shot by Israeli forces in the legs

Israeli forces deployed along the volatile border with the Gaza Strip have fired live rounds at rock-throwing Palestinian protesters ever since demonstrations against Israel’s long-running blockade of Gaza began in March. And for eight months, Israeli snipers have targeted one part of the body more than any other — the legs. The Israeli army says it is responding to weekly assaults on its frontier by Palestinians armed with stones, grenades and firebombs. The military says it opens fire only as a last resort, and considers firing at the lower limbs an act of restraint. Still, 175 Palestinians have been shot to death, according to an Associated Press count. And the number of wounded has reached colossal proportions. Of the 10,511 protesters treated at hospitals and field clinics in Gaza so far, at least 6,392, or roughly 60 percent, have been struck in the lower limbs, according to Gaza’s Health Ministry.

Israeli forces kill teen in West Bank crackdown

Israeli forces shot and killed a teenager in Jalazone refugee camp as the military cracked down on the Ramallah area of the occupied West Bank after 24 hours of violence in which two soldiers and four Palestinians were killed.

The slain teen was identified as Mahmoud Yousif Nakhla. The health ministry in the West Bank gave his age as 16 but some media reported that he was 18 years old.

Ma’an News Agency, a Palestinian outlet, said that the teen was shot from less than 10 meters away and that soldiers attempted to withhold his body. Palestinian paramedics were only able to recover Nakhla’s body after arguing with soldiers for more than 30 minutes, according to Ma’an.

Erdogan: Israel tries to dim Islam’s traces in Jerusalem

Turkish president on Friday accused Israel of trying to deliberately wipe out traces of Islamic heritage in Jerusalem over the last 50 years, Anadolu Agency reports.

“You [Israel] will not be able to wipe out,” Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at an Inter-parliamentary platform on Jerusalem in Istanbul.

You are deceiving yourself if you think you can destroy Jerusalem’s spiritual identity by moving a few embassies and consulates there, Erdogan said.

Tension has been running high in the occupied Palestinian territories since last year when U.S. President Donald Trump unilaterally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem — now occupied by Israel — might eventually serve as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

Smithsonian supports 9/11 official story but calls NIST ‘fatally flawed’

The theory is untenable. It defies science and common sense.

No wonder mainstream television (the Smithsonian Channel, owned by CBS) has happily offered it as an explanation for how the Twin Towers could come down without the use of explosives on 9/11. But this theory comes with a twist – it rejects both the official story and the notion that 9/11 was an inside job.

The theory, posited by chemist Frank Greening and metallurgist Christian Simensen in the “Twin Towers” episode of Conspiracy: The Missing Evidence, is that fires from ignited jet fuel melted the aluminum airplanes and that the resulting molten aluminum came into contact with water from the buildings’ sprinkler systems. This, according to the theory, set off massive explosions that ultimately brought both skyscrapers down.

“It was just a matter of time before the whole thing blew up — and down come the towers,” Greening says in the program.

Mass Collective Punishment Targeting Entire Families, As Israeli Army Detonates Home In Ramallah

In an all-night massive Israeli military offensive into Ramallah, centered on the al-Am’ari refugee camp, to demolish the family home of Islam Abu Hmeid, Israeli soldiers forcibly removed more than 500 Palestinians from their homes in the dead of night.

The families were forced out of their homes at gunpoint with no food or blankets, and held for hours, as hundreds of Israeli soldiers surrounded their property, and held them at a local school until dawn, when most of the women and children were, hours later, allowed to leave and be sheltered at a Red Crescent facility.

At around 10 am , the military began to withdraw from the area, apparently satisfied that they had sufficiently destabilized the structure of the four-story building to prevent any of the Palestinian families who lived there from being able to continue living there.
