Fallen Off The Radar Screen

100 Days Later, Girls Still Kidnapped

Nigeria marked a solemn milestone Tuesday in the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls. Exactly 100 days after the girls were kidnapped by by Islamic extremists Boko Haram, 219 of them were still missing, a presidential committee said. In the three months since they were taken, at least 11 of their parents have died, residents told The Associated Press.

The militants have been steadfast in their attacks throughout Nigeria and have balked at international pleas to release the girls. Nearly 60 students managed to escape from the thick jungle where most of them are still believed to be captive, but the AP has reported that at least 20 others are ill, and at least two have died of snake bites. Seven of the girls’ fathers were killed in a militant attack this month near their hometown of Chibok, and at least four other parents have died from heart failure and other illnesses that the community attributes to trauma from the girls’ abduction. A health worker offered the AP one ray of hope: The escapees, who at first refused to talk about their experience, are now participating in music and art therapy, though they are still gravely concerned about their missing classmates.

Yup, 3 and a half months later, no rescue, no success, no forward motion at all. Video at the above link, along with 119 other stories on the kidnapped schoolgirls.

Africa: Another Non-Surprise

West African Ebola Epidemic Out Of Control

No matter how much aid the West supplies, it will never be enough. Africa Wins Again.

The deadly Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa has hit “unprecedented” proportions, according to relief workers on the ground.

“The epidemic is out of control,” Dr. Bart Janssens, director of operations for Doctors Without Borders, said in a statement.

There have been 567 cases and 350 deaths since the epidemic began in March, according to the latest World Health Organization figures.

In April, CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta traveled to Conakry, Guinea, to report on what was being done to treat patients and contain the outbreak.

“It took only moments to feel the impact of what was happening here,” Gupta wrote after landing in Conakry. “There is a lot we know about Ebola, and it scares us almost as much as what we don’t know.”

Ebola outbreaks usually are confined to remote areas, making it easier to contain. But this outbreak is different; patients have been identified in 60 locations in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.

Officials believe the wide footprint of this outbreak is partly because of the close proximity between the jungle where the virus was first identified and cities such as Conakry. The capital in Guinea has a population of 2 million and an international airport.

People are traveling without realizing they’re carrying the deadly virus. It can take between two and 21 days after exposure for someone to feel sick.

Ebola is a violent killer. The symptoms, at first, mimic the flu: headache, fever, fatigue. What comes next sounds like something out of a horror movie: significant diarrhea and vomiting, while the virus shuts off the blood’s ability to clot.

As a result, patients often suffer internal and external hemorrhaging. Many die in an average of 10 days.

Doctors Without Borders, also known as Médecins Sans Frontières, is the only aid organization treating people affected by the virus. Since March, they have sent more than 300 staff members and 40 tons of equipment and supplies to the region to help fight the epidemic.

Still, they warn, it’s not enough.

62% mortality rate. Essentially 2 out of 3. And that’s WITH as much medical care as the West can supply.

Remind me to reschedule my trip to Africa to the 12th of Never.

stay away

Guinea, West Africa -

Ebola Outbreak Kills 59, Growing

Guinea has received confirmation that a mysterious disease that has killed up to 59 people in the West African country, and may have spread to neighbouring Sierra Leone, is the haemorrhagic fever Ebola, the government said on Saturday.

Cases of the disease - among the most virulent pathogens known to infect humans, with a fatality rate of up to 90 percent - have been registered in three southeastern towns and in the capital Conakry since February 9. It has never before been recorded in Guinea.

“It is indeed Ebola fever. A laboratory in Lyon (France) confirmed the information,” Damantang Albert Camara told Reuters.

Six of the 12 samples sent for analysis tested positive for Ebola, Dr. Sakoba Keita, who heads the epidemics prevention division at Guinea’s health ministry, told Reuters.
...
World Health Organisation (WHO) officials said that cases showing similar symptoms, including fever, diarrhoea, vomiting and bleeding, had also been reported in an area of Sierra Leone near the border with Guinea.

Ebola is introduced into the human population through close contact with infected animals including chimpanzees, gorillas, fruit bats, monkeys, forest antelope and porcupines, according to the WHO.

The disease, which is transmitted between humans through contact with organs, blood, secretions, or other bodily fluids, is most commonly found in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, South Sudan and Gabon.

Stay away. Far away. And stop exchanging bodily fluids with those damned dirty apes! Eww.

yay and yuck

Took all 7 against the 1st place team tonight at Greed League. Don’t ask me how. Holiday Miracle I guess. I threw a 621 so I’m happy with that; all games over average. Good enough.

A bit tired now.

But it beats being in Mada-freakin-gascar and having the damned Bubonic Pneumonic Plague.

Local authorities in Madagascar say 20 people have died since last week because of what they suspect to be an outbreak of bubonic plague.

Police in the northwestern district of Mandritsara said Wednesday the deceased could not be treated in time. They say more than 20 others suspected of being infected are currently receiving treatment.
...
The plague, known as the Black Death, killed millions in Europe in the Middle Ages but is now extremely rare and can be treated. It is carried by bacteria that primarily are carried by wild rodents

Today, the plague is a rare malady. Antibiotics are largely to thank for this. However, more than 80% of the world’s remaining bubonic plague cases come from Madagascar alone, often spread within the island’s prisons due to cramped and unhygienic conditions. Last year, Madagascar reported 60 deaths from the plague, the highest number in the world.

Black Death plague was the single biggest killer of people across the world from the fourteenth through the seventeenth centuries, and surprisingly today, the bubonic plague is still a big problem in many parts of the world.

The latest outbreak has occurred in Madagascar, where an even more vicious strain of the plague than the one in the Middle Ages has killed 39 people so far, according to a government statement last Thursday.

A doctor with the government said that 90 percent of the cases seen were pneumonic plague, a strain that is more severe than the common bubonic plague, typically killing victims within three days, leaving little time for antibiotics to work their magic.
...
The outbreak has been blamed on an infestation of rats in residential areas due to uncontrolled deforestation.

Horry Clap.  The rats have taken over in the filthy slums, coming out of the fields and forests, because the island has been stripped bare of nearly all the plant life by the natives, who will eat or burn anything.  The de-greening of this once magnificent spice island has given us a whole new world, “lavaka”, to describe a nearly unique kind of erosion only found in a few other places around the world.

This really sucks.

One Less Commie Terrorist

Nelson Mandela, Dead at 95

Be prepared for A SOLID WEEK OR TWO of hearing 24-7 what a wonderful, brave, magnificent, super dooper extra special supercalifragilistic expialidocious saint-and-a-half he was.

South African president Jacob Zuma announced the death of former South African President Nelson Mandela this evening at approximately 6:30pm ET.

(CNN)—Freedom fighter, statesman, moral compass and South Africa’s symbol of the struggle against racial oppression.

That was Nelson Mandela, who emerged from prison after 27 years to lead his country out of decades of apartheid.

He died Thursday night at age 95.

His message of forgiveness, not vengeance, inspired the world after he negotiated a peaceful end to segregation and urged forgiveness for the white government that imprisoned him.

“As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison,” Mandela said after he was freed in in 1990.

(CNN)—Nelson Mandela’s willingness to forgive and forget helped peacefully end an era of white domination in his native South Africa. But as news of his death spread, mourners there and around the world professed that he, himself, would never be forgotten.

“Mandela’s biggest legacy ... was his remarkable lack of bitterness and the way he did not only talk about reconciliation, but he made reconciliation happen in South Africa,” said F.W. de Klerk, South Africa’s last white president before giving way to Mandela, the country’s first black leader.

The African National Congress—the political party long associated with Mandela—said “our nation has lost a colossus, an epitome of humility, equality, justice, peace and the hope of millions.”

“The large African Baobab, who loved Africa as much as he loved South Africa, has fallen,” the party said in a statement, comparing Mandela to a sturdy tree found in Africa. “Its trunk and seeds will nourish the earth for decades to come.”

... and that’s just the beginning.  Wait until the superlatives really come out.

And while Mandela may have been instrumental in changing the government and direction of South Africa, let’s not take a peek at how the nation - once the greatest success story in African history - is doing today. Don’t bother reading anything any former SA citizens who are also former bloggers may have to say(Kim). The reality of current South Africa, now just a few short steps above Zimbabwe, the former Rhodesia, doesn’t matter. What matters is that the bad old white folks been pushed aside, so proper BLACK South Africa ( a land which [surprise!!] was largely empty before the colonial Europeans came by ) is now free and in charge of it’s own destiny ... blood soaked, corruption riddled, disease encrusted ... straight into the crapper.

with apologies to gorillas ….

Looks like one group of these gorillas in the mist have started their own personal aid fund.

Sorry. I should not have used that expression.  Most unfair and I’m sure the Gorillas would not like the comparison had they the gift of speech.  Funny though how some undeserving species do.

So here it is 8 months into 2013 and folks are still raising funds and spending good money in this place.  I guess silly white people will still be doing it a thousand years from now.  By then however, they may not even be all white.  Might be a cross between the two as the brainwashing of made to feel guilty white folks which has been going on for generations, takes hold and produces mostly black and brown and all shades of same. Then nobody will have to feel guilty anymore, but this part of the world will remain exactly as it is now. Or perhaps worse as the whites become blacks and everything just falls apart.

Machete gang shot AK47 rounds above the heads of 14 British private school pupils as they robbed them during Africa aid trip

Group leader and her husband, both 64, assaulted in roadside ambush

Their local tour guide was also stabbed in the back by the armed robbers

Pupils were from £4,000-a-term Cranbrook School in Kent

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

Gunman launched a roadside ambush on 14 British private school pupils on an aid trip in Africa, firing AK47 rounds above their heads and threatening them with machetes.

‘We will kill you!’ the men shouted at the youngsters before rifling their bags and making off with money, cameras and mobile phones during the hold-up in the Tabora region of Tanzania.

During the 90-minute ordeal group leader Angela Daly was assaulted, while her husband George, 64, was kicked in the head.

Their local guide was stabbed in the back before the robbers fled.

But the group of 14 pupils, aged 15 to 18, and two staff from £4,000-a-term Cranbrook School in Kent were said to be ‘shaken’ but uninjured following the robbery last month.

A police escort was assigned to them for the remainder of the four-week trip by the regional police commissioner, headmaster John Weeds said.

Although the pupils were given the option of flying home after their ordeal, they all agreed to carry on.

Mrs Daly, a former headteacher, praised the pupils’ bravery. She told The Sun: ‘All of us thought they’d kill us but the students - eight boys and six girls - were incredible.

‘There was no screaming or hysterics and they handed over the money. You don’t resist when someone’s pointing a gun at you.

‘Afterwards, they did admit a lot of prayers were said.’

Hey ...  catch the following quote. You may have to read it more than once.
And folks think my home state of California is La-La land.

The British High Commission in Dar es Salaam was told about the incident, which Mr Weeds said would not deter the school’s pupils from travelling to east Africa again.

Mr Weeds said: ‘The vehicle was not targeted, and there were a number of other local people in the same queue of traffic involved. It wasn’t just about the students.

‘The students were fine. There is no accounting for the emotional effect of such an episode as that is difficult to diagnose, but they came back in high spirits.

‘We will review what happened but we are very enthusiastic about sending our students to the developing world. It’s a very valuable way of broadening horizons.

‘It gives some experience of a completely different environment in a controlled way.

Oh it was controlled okay.  By the guys with the guns.
And as for broadening horizons, ha.  This seems a hell of a way to do that.
The article goes on to claim the school has been helping in this part of the world for 30 years.
Gotta be a joke there somewhere.

Such A Coincidence

Massive Fire Shuts Down Top Kenya Airport

15 years to the day from the 1998 US embassy bombings there that killed 200

image

NAIROBI, Kenya — The Kenyan authorities ordered the temporary closing on Wednesday of the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi after a huge fire broke out and raged for four hours, officials and witnesses said. The blaze spread to the international arrivals area, bringing East Africa’s busiest airport to a standstill and turning parts of it into charred ruins.

By mid-afternoon, Michael Kamau, a senior government transport official, told reporters that the airport had been partially reopened for domestic and cargo flights, but international traffic was still suspended. Airport authorities planned to convert another part of the facility to a temporary terminal for international flights, he said.

The airport handles 16,000 passengers a day, officials said, and is a vital link for Kenya’s cut flower export business — an important source of foreign currency along with the country’s tourism trade on beaches and in game reserves, and the exportation of tea.

The fire started at around 5 a.m. on Wednesday, when many flights to and from Europe and elsewhere were scheduled.

Wednesday, Aug. 7, is the anniversary of the 1998 coordinated bombings of United States Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, attacks that killed more than 200 people.

But Kenya’s antiterror police boss, Boniface Mwaniki, told The A.P. that he wanted to wait for the fire to be extinguished before making a judgment about whether terrorism had been involved. Kenya is a key Western ally, abutting troubled areas of neighboring Somalia.

...

The fire lasted several hours, Ms. Price, 32, said in a telephone interview, and appeared to have caused major damage. “It looked like it would be hard to repair,” she said.


Nothing to see here, move along, I’m sure.

Barack Obama pledges energy cash to light up Africa’s darkness.

Barack Obama pledges energy cash to light up Africa’s darkness

US President promises funding to provide ‘the energy to lift people out of poverty’ by doubling Africans’ access to electricity
US President Barack Obama finally found a way to illuminate a so-far underwhelming tour of Africa tonight with a promise to double Africans’ access to electricity. In an emotional address to students at the University of Cape Town he promised “a light where currently there is darkness”.

Mr Obama said his government would provide $7bn (£4.6bn) in public funding, as well as $9bn from the US private sector, for the “power Africa” initiative. He also announced that the US would be inviting African heads of state to a summit in Washington next year to address continental issues: “I’m calling for America to up our game when it comes to Africa,” he said, promising to move beyond aid to a “new model of partnership”.

Fewer than a third of households in sub-Saharan Africa have electricity, according to the World Bank. In rural areas that number falls to one in 10. Africa accounts for more than a sixth of the world’s population, but generates only 4 per cent of global electricity.

Gee my heart bleeds.

Sometime last year or maybe it was early in this, I snail mailed Drew a story from a magazine with regard to aid in that part of the world.  I don’t think either of us posted the story, but it would have fit in here very well.

Part of the article dealt with the Chinese building infrastructure and bringing in supplies etc. However, unlike the soft hearted and self delusional westerners, the materials and building sites are not guarded by local villagers.  The Chinese are far smarter than that and in fact, have built gated communities for their workers. Who are ALL Chinese. Especially the guards.  That’s because they know what the westerners know, but won’t turn a blind eye to local theft.  And since many Africans have a slightly different view of the work ethic and have proved to the Chinese they are not entirely reliable, the work crews are Chinese.

The article went on to describe how one village without proper water facilities and sewerage drains, were digging up the pipes almost as soon as they were put in, and sold on the black market.  These were the pipes and other materials shipped in under aid programs for Africa.

So I read this story and wonder if perhaps there may have been the supplies to install the electric, but somehow the goods fell off the back of the truck. 

Meanwhile, there are folks who just can not help but pitch in and help Africans by adopting the latest fashion accessory.  You simply must have one my dear. Why it’s the done thing and goes well with that dress.

Naturally, there aren’t any white babies available who might be in need. Heck, what’s the big deal adopting a white kid, when taking on a black one confirms your liberalism for all to see.  And adopting a white baby is soooo last year.  Nobody will notice you dear.

See next post.

another farm family victims of black savagery, no worlk wide outcry or threat of sanctions

Kinky haired, thick lip, savage darkies on another killing rampage.

Anything new here?

This article is a double page spread in the morning paper.  Apparently in this case the family wasn’t able to defend itself and even when they are, they are generally outnumbered. 

When South Afrika enjoyed apartheid, that part that bathed and read books, the western world was up in arms are those terrible white settlers who built the roads and the infrastructure such as existed, because they kept the black folk down. Well it seems not far enough down judging by the happenings over the last decade and today’s outrage another example of the savage mindset of that politically approved majority.
Even in the worst examples of apartheid, there were damn few outrages on this scale if any at all.  This story is pretty upsetting.  Those whites still there should pack what they can and get the hell out and let that miserable place stink and sink in it’s own filth and die.  There isn’t one that is worth a white life.
And speaking of that, even during apartheid, there were no white gangs raping old women and slaughtering babies with their mothers.  They didn’t think in those terms or act in those ways no matter what other criticism one may have about them.  And personally, I never had any.

Mandela’s passing and the looming threat of a race war against South Africa’s whites. As a widow mourns the latest murdered Afrikaner farmer, a chilling dispatch from a nation holding its breath

Roelof du Plessis, 46 shot on his farm outside Pretoria by gang of black intruders

Fears rise that killings are part of a systematic bid to drive white people out of South Africa

President Jacob Zuma known to sing ‘struggle song’ about killing white Afrikaners

By Andrew Malone In Pretoria

The horror started just before midnight on Wednesday this week.

image

After listening to the latest television news about the health of Nelson Mandela, a South African family living not far from the former President’s hospital unit turned in for the night.

But Roelof and Laura du Plessis, a married couple with four children who live on a heavily fortified farm outside Pretoria, did not have a peaceful night’s rest.

In fact they were about to become the latest victims of what white pressure groups in this troubled nation say is nothing less than a savage war against them.

Hearing noises outside their home, Mr du Plessis, 46, got out of bed and ran outside.

To his horror, he found his 19-year-old son being held with a gun to his head by a gang of five armed black attackers.

Father and son were ordered to lie on the ground. The invaders did not ask for money or the keys to the expensive vehicles in the drive. They were there only to terrorise and kill.

Hearing voices outside, Laura, 44, came out of her bedroom to investigate — and her torch illuminated an awful scene as the gang pointed guns at her husband.

Her son managed to get up and sprint off into the darkness when the men were confused by the flashlight. But Du Plessis was not so lucky.

The intruders opened fire at once, shooting him six times through the throat, lungs and abdomen.

As he writhed on the ground in agony, the men ran off into the night leaving empty bullet cartridges littering the yard.

In the darkness, Laura attempted heart massage on her husband, who could still talk despite his appalling injuries, but to no avail.

When I arrived at the farm on Thursday and was invited in by Mrs du Plessis, I found her with blood still caked under her fingernails after she’d cradled her dying husband.

‘He was shot through the lungs and I was doing CPR,’ she told me, between huge sobs. ‘He said “please go and fetch the car and take me to hospital”. But he was too badly hurt and he died in my arms.’

In the morning, when white friends from neighbouring farms followed the trail of the raiders, they discovered the men had carefully cut through fences and skirted areas with security patrols — suggesting how closely they had planned their route of attack.

‘It is definitely coming down to a race thing,’ Laura du Plessis told me as she was comforted by her family. ‘They hate white people. We have never had a fight with any black people. I always stop and give others a lift. We employ black people.

‘My husband fought for me. I am grateful that he wasn’t tied up and forced to watch me being raped before he was killed. He was an amazing man. He was my life.’

The statistics — and the savagery of the killings — appear to support claims by these residents that white people, and farmers in particular, are being targeted by black criminals.

Little wonder that what unfolded on the Du Plessis homestead has sent tremors of fear through the three-million-strong white community.

Last month alone there were 25 murders of white landowners, and more than 100 attacks, while Afrikaner protest groups claim that more than 4,000 have been killed since Mandela came to power — twice as many as the number of policemen who have died.

It is not just the death toll, but the extreme violence that is often brought to bear, that causes the greatest fear in the white community.

Documented cases of farm killings make for gruesome reading, with children murdered along with their parents, one family suffocated with plastic bags and countless brutal rapes of elderly women and young children.

These horrors have prompted Genocide Watch — a respected American organisation which monitors violence around the world — to claim that the murders of ‘Afrikaner farmers and other whites is organised by racist communists determined to drive whites out of South Africa, nationalise farms and mines, and bring on all the horrors of a communist state’.

At a centenary gathering of the African National Congress last year, Zuma was filmed singing a so-called ‘struggle song’ called Kill The Boer (the old name for much of the white Afrikaner population).

As fellow senior ANC members clapped along, Zuma sang: ‘We are going to shoot them, they are going to run, Shoot the Boer, shoot them, they are going to run, Shoot the Boer, we are going to hit them, they are going to run, the Cabinet will shoot them, with the machine-gun, the Cabinet will shoot them, with the machine-gun . . .’

Alongside him was a notorious character called Julius ‘Juju’ Malema, a former leader of the ANC youth league, who is now Zuma’s bitter enemy and is reportedly planning to launch a new political party after Mandela’s death.

A bogeyman to white South Africans, Malema is popular among young blacks, and has also been an enthusiastic singer of Kill The Boer and another song called Bring Me My Machine-Gun.

Polls this week showed a huge surge in support among young black South Africans for his policies, which he says will ignore reconciliation, and fight for social justice in an ‘onslaught against [the] white male monopoly’.

With chilling echoes of neighbouring Zimbabwe, where dictator Robert Mugabe launched a murderous campaign to drive white farmers off the land in 2000, Malema wants all white-owned land to be seized without compensation, along with nationalisation of the country’s lucrative mines.

Ominously, Malema, 32, who wears a trademark beret and has a fondness for Rolex watches, this month promised his new party will take the land from white people without recompense and give it to blacks.

‘We need the land that was taken from our people, and we are not going to pay for it,’ he said. ‘We need a party that will say those who were victims of apartheid stand to benefit unashamedly, and those who perpetuated apartheid must show remorse and behave in a manner that says they regret their conduct.’

Enthusiastically backed by Winnie Mandela, Nelson’s second wife — who is still hugely popular in South Africa despite her suspected role in several murders — Malema is a charismatic figure who once threw a BBC correspondent out of a press conference for asking about his wealthy lifestyle.

His words have done nothing to allay the fears of white communities, some of which have taken extreme measures to protect themselves.

This week I visited Kleinfontein in Pretoria, a white-only community of 1,000 men, women and children who live behind high fences, with a gatehouse manned by men in military fatigues, who also carry out regular patrols of the grounds to prevent black intruders entering.

Anyone without an appointment with an official resident is refused entry. If they are black, they will not get in at all.

Inside, there is a shopping mall, while the town has its own water supply and sewage system. All manual work is carried out by white residents.

There is a rugby pitch, opulent homes overlooking miles of open countryside where antelope and zebra roam, and a hospital for the elderly residents.

Most crucially of all, in a country with 60 murders a day, there is no armed robbery, murder or rape in Kleinfontein. ‘An old lady can draw money here without any fear,’ says Marisa Haasbroek, a resident, mother of two teenage girls, and my guide for the morning.

‘It’s safe, quiet and peaceful. It’s not racist — it is about protecting our Afrikaner cultural identity.’

Like all the residents, she is descended from the first Afrikaners, the Dutch settlers who came to South Africa and were driven into the African interior on the famous Great Trek during the war with the British from 1899 to 1902.

Kleinfontein has been in existence since Mandela’s first presidency in 1994 — but its existence remained largely unknown until reports last year that black police officers had been barred from entry to the property.

I think there will be trouble,’ Anna, an elderly lady tending her garden inside the all-white compound, tells me.

‘There may be tribal warfare first between the black races. Then they might turn on us.’

Standing near a sign written in Afrikaans stating ‘ons is hier om te bly’ (we are here to stay), Marike, another resident, was convinced that there is a sinister plot to kill all whites.

‘You don’t attack farms and rape 80-year-old women with broken bottles and kill their husbands for a mobile phone,’ Marike says. ‘People say it’s not genocide — but it is.’

Such uncertainty about the future has been given added credence by the tawdry, shameful scenes surrounding Mandela’s death bed — where his family were last night continuing to squabble over where he should be buried and who should get the most loot from tourists visiting the grave.

Benji The Racist

Big Talk. Now Make It Happen



JERUSALEM (AP) - Israel’s prime minister says thousands of Africans who have infiltrated into Israel will be sent back home.

Benjamin Netanyahu declared Wednesday that Israel has halted the flow of African migrants into Israel over the past seven months. He spoke while visiting the fence Israel built on border with Egypt to keep migrants out.

He said he will soon begin “repatriating the tens of thousands of infiltrators in Israel to their countries of origin.”

About 60,000 Africans have entered Israel in recent years, some seeking asylum and others looking for work.

Sigal Rozen, whose group assists migrants, says it’s unlikely Israel can repatriate them, since many come from conflict zones or countries that have no ties with Israel.




Hoo boy, this one’s going to explode on the news the moment they start to load up the first boat. Hey Benji, play it smart and make sure the cameras see you sending home some Irish and Portuguese too. Not that it will make any difference. Certain groups get a pass, no matter what.

OTOH, if some of those African asylum seekers are provably Falashas, then he’s in a world of trouble within Israel itself. Africa is a huge place, and I have no idea which part these infiltrators came from.

... and Drew ties another post to the Aksum/Queen of Sheba post! Learning stuff is dangerous; you start noticing all sorts of things you’d never been aware of before! LOL




This may be news over here, but the problem is not at all new in Israel. There seems to be a pretty huge groundswell of public opinion that these people should get the boot. On the other hand, there are some who want them to stay; part of the core concept of Israel is that it is a refuge, and it looks like the vast majority of these ‘infiltrators’ are from Eritrea. Eritrea, as you recall, is a tiny bit of a country on the lower Red Sea, which broke off from Ethiopia about 20 years ago. It’s very much an Islamic nation, and it’s also a hellhole with one of the worst human rights ratings of any country on earth. The same thing goes for the newly independent South Sudan. Israeli Interior Minister Eli Yishai, among many others, has been speaking out about this problem for several years now. Jump over to Haaretz or the JPost and you can read hundreds of news articles on the topic.

Border control fans in the USA will find the next bit quite interesting: Once Israel got the border fence properly built, not one single infiltrator was able to get in. Not one.

12/24/12: Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday signaled he was ready to begin repatriating African migrants, which he termed the “second stage” in the effort to clear Israel of illegal infiltrators.

“We have succeeded in blocking the entry of infiltrators from Africa to Israel,” Netanyahu said at the start of a discussion he convened on the issue. “After having faced the threat of the entry of hundreds of thousands, this month, not one infiltrator entered Israel’s cities.”

The prime minister said that after workers complete construction of the the security fence being built along Israel’s southern border next month, Israel will start working to send migrants already in Israel back to their home countries. “Now we are moving on to the second stage, that of repatriating the infiltrators who are already here.”

On the third hand, this could be a lot of political posturing. There is a significant right-wing faction in Israel that could need a bit of pandering to for the upcoming elections. And that bunch has already held “Banish the darkness” rallies.

Calling it a move to “banish the darkness,” right-wing MKs Michael Ben-Ari and Arieh Eldad held a Hanukka candle-lighting ceremony in south Tel Aviv on Monday to issue a call to expel all African migrants from Israel.
...
Ben-Ari’s parliamentary aide and right-wing activist Itamar Ben-Gvir said, “We came to expel the darkness!” but added that the message of the rally was not racist, as they accept Ethiopian Jews.

He clarified that the “darkness” refers to the poverty and suffering among residents of south Tel Aviv and other neighborhoods with high populations of African migrants, and not to people of color.

do white folks really need to be here anymore? let the place sink and let em all starve

Not the first time this has happened and I can not understand why white folks refuse to heed the danger signs.

This place may be beautiful, I can understand admiring the landscape.  But since the world ganged up on an efficient white run govt. and forced an end to apartheid, this place has gone to the dogs. Not reals dogs of course. More like the ignorant pissant k-9 my neighbor owns. But I bet their dog smells better then the thugs in this story.

This is the sort of things darkies do for sport as well as criminal profit. It’s in their genes.A thousand years from today this country will still be getting handouts from the west assuming there is still a west once the muslims are finished with it.

How about the headline here? incidents blamed on social inequality Sure thing. They own the country, they are running things now, and they sill haven’t got equality.  Of course we know what they really mean by that term. Don’t we?  Equality means having everything that the white guy has but without actually earning it.  It ain’t equal less it be stolen away or given away.  Bah. And Mandela is some kind of hero. For what? Oh right. He survived jail. Too bad that.
I can’t understand why he wasn’t wearing a gun or had one to hand.  Sad story and I’m sorry for him and his family and even the dogs.

OK, gotta gwt outta here while this is up and running. Phone ppl outside again, been on the street since very early morning doing I don’t know but they’re looking at that line up there. Hmmmm. ???

British engineer who ‘fell in love’ with South Africa is hacked to death on his remote farmstead by machete-wielding thieves who only took mobile phones

Chris Preece’s wife was also injured in the attack which happened after robbers poisoned their guard dogs

This farm attack is the latest in a string of similar incidents and has been blamed on social inequality

By Dan Newling

A British engineer who moved to South Africa after ‘falling in love with the country’ has been brutally murdered on his remote farmstead.

Chris Preece was stabbed to death in his kitchen by men with machetes who left with just a few mobile phones and a small amount of cash.

The 54-year-old’s wife Felicity was also seriously injured in Saturday night’s attack, which happened on a farm the couple were turning into a nature reserve.

Mr Preece’s daughter-in-law has told how a gang of three robbers poisoned the couple’s large pack of guard dogs before breaking into the house.

The engineer, who was originally from Southgate in north London, is believed to have been assaulted when he confronted the men at his farm outside Ficksburg on South Africa’s border with Lesotho.

His wife Felicity, 56, is thought to have heard him crying for help, but was overpowered before she could call police. She sustained a fractured skull.

Yesterday her daughter-in-law Jeanne Preece said: ‘The robbers threw her against the wall, slashed her and then left for dead. And for what? A little money, a wallet, a few phones’.

Mr Preece’s death is the latest in an alarming trend of brutal murders on remote farmsteads in post apartheid South Africa.

Since the country’s first fully democratic elections in 1994, more than 3,000 white, mainly Afrikaans, farmers have been killed in their homes.

The so-called ‘farm attacks’ are part of the wave of criminality that has engulfed the country in recent years, something criminologist blame of a number of factors, including inept policing and widening social inequality.

But in the case of ‘farm attacks’ - which occur far from the crime-ravaged townships - academics also blame a breakdown in the traditional social contract between employer and employee.

Police research shows that the murders are normally carried out by drug-addicted, unemployed black men. Often they have some connection with the targeted farmstead.

Local police said the attack at Mr Preece’s farm - called Fleur de Lys - is the fifth such attack, and the second murder, in the district over the past month.

Yesterday Jeanne Preece told the local Volksblad newspaper how Mr Preece had moved to South Africa in 1995 for work, after which he had ‘fallen in love’ with the country.

He worked as principal geotechnical engineer for mining firm Snowden and was based in the country’s commercial capital Johannesburg.

However he spent every weekend on the farm, 200 miles drive away, where he wife Felicity lived.

The couple were passionate about wildlife and welcomed local children to the farm to teach them to ride horses.

Racist Revisionist Bullshit

Website names obscure 14th century African king the richest person in history





Step aside, Bill Gates. Meet Mansa Musa I of Mali, a 14th century African king whose estimated $400 billion fortune makes him the richest human being in all of history, according to the website Celebrity Net Worth.

The website released a list last week of the wealthiest people who ever lived, claiming it had adjusted for inflation to bring the fortunes into 2012 dollars.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates, whose fortune peaked during the dot.com bubble at what would be $136 billion in today’s dollars, ranks at No. 12, though he is now worth about half as much, according to the website.

This bit of “art” that looks drawn by a 10 year old accompanies the article.

You’re supposed to believe it’s a Genuine African Artifact.

My ass.

Britain’s voodoo killers. Warning. This isn’t a pleasant read.

There isn’t any doubt this will be the most disturbing and gruesome post I have ever done.  In my wildest imaginings of the evil ppl do, until sometime last year when I first became aware, I still didn’t know it had gone this far and for so long a time.  Reports say at least ten years.

I have done some editing but, due to the nature of the subject, this is not a short post. And oh btw:

Lets hear it for multi culture and diversity folks.

Remember that very old story about a farmer inviting a pig into his house and clothing it etc.?  It was still a piggy and it still crapped wherever it wanted to even though it was the smartest animal in his barnyard.  Something like that. 
Another way saying something about a leopard’s spots.

Well, this gruesome story reminds me of that.  I love cats, but if I dressed a cat up in a suit and tie, it would still be a cat and it would still, we would hope, use the damn litter box.
But this is a very different sort of animal. An almost human one.

They’ve been taught to read and write and given opportunities to better themselves which some have for sure.  But the life forms that have been coming out of some of the backward places mentioned, are not quite the same.  They may look it and act it when it’s necessary, but once on their own, where no one can see, they quickly revert to what they actually are.

Savages, and vicious ones at that.  They are NOT capable of integrating and a thousand years from today, they will be exactly as they are now, which is what they were a thousand years ago.  Savages.

This is without a doubt the most disturbing article I have ever posted here. And it is not done for shock value, although it may shock a few.  Mostly I think, this won’t surprise many as it’s pretty much expected.

This isn’t for the squeamish.

he was found licking blood from the man’s injured face.

the louder the victim screams, the more potent the magic.

Britain’s voodoo killers: This week a minister warned of a wave of child abuse and killings linked to witchcraft. Alarmist? This investigation suggests otherwise

By SUE REID

They appeared to be upright and decent members of our society. She dressed smartly, and had worked for Marks & Spencer. ( a major dept. store chain)

He drove a top-of-the-range Mercedes and spent his spare time coaching a local women’s football team.

But unbeknown to their neighbours and friends, this couple living in their suburban London flat led a terrifying secret life.

They practised African black magic or voodoo, and on Christmas Day in 2010 they murdered a teenage boy in the belief he was a witch.
To rid the 15-year-old of his ‘demons’, the couple attacked him with knives, sticks, metal bars, a hammer, pliers and a chisel until he begged to die.

After three days of torture, Kristy Bamu was put in the bath and hosed down with cold water to get rid of the blood on his body. Horribly injured, he slid under the water as the bath filled up, and drowned.

Details of Kristy’s murder were revealed at a trial at London’s Old Bailey which ended earlier this year.
Football coach Eric Bikubi, 28, and his partner, Magalie Bamu, 29, Kristy’s sister, were each sentenced to life imprisonment for killing him at their eighth-floor apartment in Newham, East London.

The case was a shocking reminder of how witchcraft, with its roots in Africa, South Asia and the Caribbean, is now practised in the heart of our multicultural cities and towns.

more than 130 dreadful injuries on his body. His face was unrecognisable and pounded to a pulp.

Nine days before Kristy’s death, a mother disembowelled her four-year-old daughter to ‘exorcise evil spirits’ at her home in Hackney, London.

Shayma Ali strangled the child before stabbing her 40 times with a kitchen knife because she believed she was possessed by a spirit referred to in the Koran.

She had removed the eyes from the little girl’s toys to stop them ‘seeing’ the child’s evil ways.

Particularly prized are the genitalia of young boys and virgin girls. Cut from a live child they are thought to add more potency because of the victim’s screams

Last month, four family members were found guilty of murdering a pregnant 21-year-old woman whom they claimed was ‘possessed’ by ‘evil spirits’.
Mohammed Tauseef Mumtaz, 25, and his parents and brother-in-law were found guilty of killing his wife three years ago.

And just this week a Nigerian couple were sentenced to seven years in jail after abusing their children — who they believed to be possessed — for ten years.  Their crimes were only uncovered after their eldest daughter threw a note into the street outside her window, begging for help.

Oh great. Abuse for 10 years and serve 7 for the abuse.  That’s what passes for justice in today’s fracked up world where if justice ruled, they’d deserve life at the least.

Police are investigating a tide of violent acts, often against children, by those who believe in witchcraft practices known as voodoo, kindoki, and juju. But a government minister has warned that political correctness is hampering their ability to prevent such atrocities.

Such horrors are barely credible yet detectives fear they are only scraping the surface of this hidden and abhorrent crime wave. They have linked witchcraft to huge money-making operations in which parents pay wads of cash for ‘deliverance’ ceremonies to stop their children being witches.

Horrific exorcism videos promoting the vile practice are on sale in Britain and I was able to buy them myself. Scotland Yard is now so alarmed at the rise in witchcraft ceremonies that it has established a special unit to investigate the ritual abuse of children in the name of religion and culture.
But these detectives are being hampered by a culture that is endemic throughout the state apparatus and conspires to hide the true enormity of what is happening.

The modern-day creed that immigrant communities must be free to follow their own cultures and customs, without questions or criticism, has allowed witchcraft and various rituals to flourish.

In June, it emerged that social workers at Islington Council, North London, considered sending an African boy back to his native land, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), for an exorcism at the taxpayers’ expense because his mother claimed he was possessed by ‘kindoki’ or evil spirits and needed ‘deliverance’.
Astonishingly, the council paid Dr Richard Hoskins, an expert in African religion, £4,372 to travel to Kinshasa, the capital of the DRC, to investigate how and if the ceremony should take place, because social workers were worried the family’s ‘sensibilities might be affected’ if they didn’t obey the mother’s wishes.
Dr Hoskins met the grandparents in Kinsasha, who claimed the boy had been ‘infected by sorcery’ in Britain which would ‘destroy them all’. Church officials in the city also claimed that his evil spirits would lead to ‘strife, illness, divorce, hardship, poverty and death’ if not dealt with by the ritual. It would have involved depriving the boy of food and drink for three days to ‘cast out’ the bad spirits.

On his return, Dr Hoskins told Islington Council that the ceremony would leave the boy ‘disturbed and traumatised’. The extraordinary plan was dropped and the child is now in the care of the local authority.

However, as Dr Hoskins told a conference, the case highlights how ambivalent British officials can be towards tackling child abuse when it is committed under the guise of religious or cultural ceremonies and ‘masked by multiculturalism’

According to witch doctors, to kill a living person for medicinal purposes is the most empowering form of sacrifice and, the most potent form of all is to kill an innocent child.

At its heart, this abuse is rooted in the belief that a misfortune befalling a family can be blamed on their child being a witch.
The failure of an immigration appeal, a shortage of money, the loss of a job or an on-going housing problem have all been cited as reasons for a son or daughter being deemed to be ‘possessed by evil spirits’.
Even a misdemeanour such as bedwetting can put a child at risk of being labelled a witch — indeed, as we shall see, it was the fact that he wet himself that sealed Kristy Bamu’s terrible fate.

Likewise, girls from strict religious backgrounds who bring shame on their family honour by adopting Western attitudes have also been forced to undergo exorcism ceremonies where they are beaten and shouted at until they faint with terror.
Dr Hoskins, an academic who has studied witchcraft for 25 years, gave evidence at the Kristy Bamu murder trial, where he said: ‘Even among educated people in London, I’ve met those who believe in kindoki, as witchcraft is known in central and western Africa , and that it has powers.’
This first caught public attention with the death of eight-year-old Victoria Climbie more than a decade ago in 2000. Victoria was killed in London by her great-aunt and partner, who said the sweet little girl was a witch.

A year later the torso of a five-year-old Nigerian boy, named Adam by police, was found in the River Thames after he was sacrificed. Police believe he was smuggled into Britain and his body parts used in a ritual medical ceremony to save the life of someone in the migrant community who was dying of an incurable disease.

In some forms of African witchcraft, heads and other body parts can be buried in front of homes to keep bad spirits at bay. A cup of human blood is said to boost vitality. A powdered concoction made from pieces of brain is believed to lead to riches.

Particularly prized are the genitalia of young boys and virgin girls. If these body parts are cut from a live child they are thought to add even more potency because of the victim’s screams.

That such practices take place overseas has long been known. But now they are happening here after being imported from other countries — and in truth they have been going on for years.

He is alleged to have cut off his daughter’s head, legs and arms during a ritual to bring him luck.

The headless torso of a black baby girl was found hidden in bushes in Epping Forest way back in 1969. Scotland Yard are now reinvestigating her murder and think it may have been the earliest case of a killing linked to African witchcraft on British soil.
The girl’s father, from north-west Africa, quickly became the chief suspect, but fled the country before he could be arrested and questioned. He is alleged to have cut off his daughter’s head, legs and arms during a ritual to bring him luck.
According to police and migrant advisory services, witchcraft ceremonies are spreading because of the increasing number of unregulated back street churches and mosques that have broken away from the mainstream places of worship to cater for millions of new immigrants from Africa, South Asia and the Caribbean countries, providing a link to their birth countries, cultures and customs.
Many of these horrific events are filmed and can be found on videos selling for a couple of pounds in ethnic shops and market stalls in London. What they show is terrified children, accused of witchcraft, being freed of ‘demons’. In one video I bought, a white-robed pastor is shown hitting a five-year-old boy with a long stick as the congregation chants approval.
His mother cries, but is held back from freeing her son because it is thought — by the prayer goers — to be the best thing for the family and their child. They are scenes which police believe are being repeated week after week in cities such as London, Birmingham, Leicester and Manchester.

And, worryingly, Detective Superintendent Terry Sharpe of Scotland Yard says that witchcraft-linked crime is ‘far more prevalent’ in this country than official figures suggest.

‘Children have been physically beaten and forced to drink unknown liquids in rituals to rid them of evil spirits. They have been starved and deprived of sleep.

‘Children have been blindfolded and had their hair cut off. They have had liquid poured on their genitals and been murdered,’ he said after the Kristy case.
So what of this innocent boy’s killers, the couple who appeared to be pillars of their local community? At the time Eric Bikubi and Magalie Bamu were busy renovating their London flat and would talk on the stairways to neighbours who thought they were a perfectly ordinary and loving couple.
Five years earlier, Bikubi had even served as a community adviser on child protection issues in the London borough of Camden.

To his family and friends, he was a talkative man, mad about football, who had trials for Arsenal and claimed to have played alongside John Terry. As for Magalie, she tied back her long hair, dressed with some style and had loved her job at Marks & Spencer.
But behind closed doors, the couple could not have been more different from this presentable image.

His belief in witchcraft was so deeply ingrained that once, when he was in prison awaiting trial, he picked a fight with another inmate and was found licking blood from the man’s injured face.
It was to this murderous man’s home that an unwitting Kristy Bamu and his siblings were sent by their parents from their family home in Paris for a few days over Christmas in 2010.

His sisters, aged 20 and 11, were beaten along with Kristy, but escaped further attacks after ‘confessing’ to being witches. Two other boy relatives, aged 13 and 22, were made to join in the torture.

A nervous teenager, Kritsy wet himself during the visit and suddenly he was accused by Bikubi and Magalie of being a witch and bringing voodoo in the couple’s home. 

Bikubi forced Kristy to pray for deliverance for three days and nights without food and water.

The boy had a metal bar shoved in his mouth, he was struck in the face with a hammer and his teeth were knocked out. One of his brothers was forced to stand guard so he could not escape, while some of his siblings were made to mop up his blood.

He begged for forgiveness during his ordeal, and even confessed to being a witch to try to save his own life. All to no avail. When Kristy died he had more than 130 dreadful injuries on his body. His face was unrecognisable and pounded to a pulp.

Savagely killed by an evil couple in the name of witchcraft, it seems certain he will not be the last child to be maimed or die.
