+ [bottom] Moscow,Russia police chief questions civil liberties while (illegal) immigrant ethnic tensions rise: "impractical"
How very leftist of them…
A radical Muslim group launched a “Christmas is evil” poster campaign hoping that their efforts would help destroy Christmas.
The Daily Mail reported:
Fanatics from a banned Islamic hate group have launched a nationwide poster campaign denouncing Christmas as evil.
Organisers plan to put up thousands of placards around the UK claiming the season of goodwill is responsible for rape, teenage pregnancies, abortion, promiscuity, crime and paedophilia.
They hope the campaign will help ‘destroy Christmas’ in this country and lead to Britons converting to Islam instead.
Sorry guys, THIS is evil.
Just as the other 16,545 other deadly attacks were evil.
All in the name of Allah.
Arrested terror suspects 'were targeting shoppers'
By Kim Sengupta, Defence Correspondent
Tuesday, 21 December 2010
A dozen men, mostly Britons of Bangladeshi origin, were arrested yesterday in connection with an alleged plot to carry out synchronised bombings in British cities.
The suspects were held in 5am raids in London, Stoke-on-Trent, Birmingham and Cardiff, after having been tracked meeting each other in different parts of the country. The arrests were made after information was received that the alleged plotters had brought forward their intended attacks and planned to strike crowded shopping streets in the days before Christmas. It is the first time that an alleged terrorist plot has been discovered involving several people of Bangladeshi origin. Aspiring jihadists have been training in Bangladesh after greater scrutiny was introduced for those travelling to Pakistan.

Security sources claimed that the arrests were unconnected with the Stockholm suicide bombing or with intelligence from Pakistan of impending "Mumbai-type" attacks.
Scotland Yard Assistant Commissioner John Yates said that based on the information held by the police, the arrests were essential for public safety. He said: "The operation is in its early stages so I am unable to go into any detail at this time as I do not wish to say anything that may prejudice any future legal proceedings. However, what I would say is that with the current threat level in the UK at severe and with the information we have, I believe today's arrests were absolutely necessary in order to keep the public safe."
All the suspects were aged between 17 and 28 and five of them were of Bangladeshi origin. Mr Yates said the operation to search their homes could take days to complete.
Home Secretary Theresa May said: "For obvious reasons it is not appropriate for me to comment further at this early stage of what could be a complex and lengthy investigation.
"We know we face a real and serious threat from terrorism and I would like to thank the police and security service for working to keep our country safe."
Residents in Rialto Place, Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, said police raided the home of man aged in his 20s at about 4.45am. One neighbour told how he feared he was being burgled when police smashed their way into the 1970s terrace. The man, who was in his 60s, recalled: "I could hear people's voices, male voices, and then a crashing noise. I thought somebody was breaking in."

Pigford Video Blockbuster: Key ‘Black Farmers’ Lawyer Admits Clients ‘Got Away With Murder’
by Lee Stranahan
The mainstream media has treated accusations of large-scale fraud in the Pigford settlement with overt skepticism and a distinct lack of journalistic curiosity. The press has blindly repeated the Obama Administration’s claim that there are only a handful of fraud cases among the twenty thousand or so paid Pigford claims. Worse, the media has helped promote the narrative that those raising concerns about fraud in Pigford are racist.

Police chief questions civil liberties

MOSCOW - MOSCOW'S police chief has questioned whether civil liberties are practical when maintaining effective law and order.
Vladimir Kolokoltsev's remarks on Wednesday are the latest sign that ethnic tensions that spilled into violence this month after a soccer fan died in a fight with people from the southern Caucasus region, could lead to rollbacks in democratic progress.
They follow Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's comments this week that restrictions could be placed on movement of people to the big cities in order to prevent such clashes.
Authorities say such moves can help combat ethnic tensions.
Mr Kolokoltsev said 'we need to have a look at how far our liberal democratic principles correspond' to the demands of Moscow
