Morsi Aide: America Invented Holocaust ‘Myth’

CAIRO (CBSDC) — An aide to Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi claims that the Holocaust was a hoax.
Fathi Shihab Eddim, Morsi’s senior aide, made the comments on Holocaust Remembrance Day on Jan. 27.
“The myth of the Holocaust is an industry that America invented,” Eddim said, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
Eddim, who is reportedly responsible for appointing editors for the country’s state-run newspapers, asserted that 6 million Jews actually moved to the United States during World War II.
“U.S. intelligence agencies in cooperation with their counterparts in allied nations during World War II created it to destroy the image of their opponents in Germany, and to justify war and massive destruction against military and civilian facilities of the Axis powers, and especially to hit Hiroshima and Nagasaki with the atomic bomb,” Eddim said, according to the Telegraphic Agency.
Morsi has also been under fire for comments he made about Jews in 2010, saying that they are the “descendants of apes and pigs.”

Study: New E15 gas can ruin auto engines

Now, according to a new study, cars and truck may face the same fate thanks to President Obama’s demand for a higher ethanol in the new E15 gas.
The fuel industry’s American Petroleum Institute tested the 15 percent ethanol gas approved in 2010 and found it gums up fuel systems, prompts “check engine” lights to come on, and messes with fuel gauge readings.
The industry prefers pure fuel to an ethanol mix, but the report isn’t likely to slow the administrations green push, according to a Washington auto lobbyist.
The key points from the API report are below:
The additional E15 testing, completed this month, has identified an elevated incidence of fuel pump failures, fuel system component swelling, and impairment of fuel measurement systems in some of the vehicles tested. E15 could cause erratic and misleading fuel gauge readings or cause faulty check engine light illuminations. It also could cause critical components to break and stop fuel flow to the engine. Failure of these components could result in breakdowns that leave consumers stranded on busy roads and highways. Fuel system component problems did not develop in the CRC tests when either E10 or E0 was used. It is difficult to precisely calculate how many vehicles E15 could harm. That depends on how widely it is used and other factors. But, given the kinds of vehicles tested, it is safe to say that millions could be impacted.
In 2010 and 2011, EPA gave the green light to use E15 – the 15 percent ethanol gasoline blend – in model-year-2001-and-later cars and some other vehicles. EPA’s action was irresponsible. EPA knew E15 vehicle testing was ongoing but decided not to wait for the results. Why did EPA move forward prematurely?  MORE

Court denies challenge to EPA ethanol ruling

A federal court on Tuesday preserved an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ruling that permits the sale of a high-ethanol fuel blend.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia denied a rehearing on the EPA decision that put fuels with a 15-percent ethanol concentration, known as E15, on the market.
The development is a win for the biofuels industry, which also is fighting off a lobbying effort against E15 and a biofuel blending mandate vital to the industry.
 “[T]his is a major victory for the renewable fuels industry and opens the door for further investment in new fueling technology to offer E15 to consumers,” Tom Buis, chief executive with biofuels trade group Growth Energy, said in a Tuesday statement.
The court decision is a setback for the oil-and-gas industry, which opposes the use of E15.
While EPA has said cars made in 2001 or later can safely use E15, the oil-and-gas industry contends it harms vehicles. It warns that most auto companies can or will void warranties for E15-related damage.

20-year-old Welsh Male who posted “grossly offensive” racist messages on Twitter spared prison

Ricky Lee Davies
A financial consultant who tweeted “grossly offensive” racist messages has been spared prison.
Ricky Lee Davies, 20, sent a message aimed at Asians saying: “Why don’ you f*** back to the desert, you c***s.”
A court heard Davies went on Twitter after watching a late-night TV show about Muslim extremist terrorism and poppy burning.
After the show, viewers were asked to join in a debate on social networking sites.
But magistrates heard Davies put his racist views on Twitter and police received a barrage of complaints.
Prosecutor Jonathan Coombs said: “It was seen by a large number of Twitter users – the message was directed to Muslims and Pakistani nationalities.
“But it could have been offensive to anyone of any nationality or of any faith.”
Davies has a previous conviction for calling a bearded man in a turban Bin Laden.
Davies, who lives with his elderly grandparents in St Thomas, Swansea, admitted sending a grossly offensive message by public communications network.
Dan Heard, defending, said: “He entered into a debate after the TV programme but failed to articulate himself properly and it became name calling.
“None of those who replied to his Twitter were particularly offended – they just thought he was a silly boy.”

EU plan to voluntarily remove “terrorist content” finally concludes

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM—During the last two years, CleanIT, the European Commission-funded project group to “reduce terrorist use of the Internet,” has met on a regular basis trying to come up with a set of voluntary general principles to achieve that vague goal. Earlier this month, the group published its “final report,” in which it called for a “flag this as terrorism” content button in your browser.
On Wednesday, I moderated the final symposium—my travel and lodging was paid for out of the project’s €326,000 ($442,000) budget. An assembled crowd (including a few Ars readers!) of around 50 people came together at a European Parliament-adjacent hotel in downtown Brussels to hear from various speakers from government, academia, and civil society across Europe.
After hours of talks, it remained quite vague if or how CleanIT would move forward given its two-year funding had come to a close. Most speakers seemed mainly interested in thanking the Dutch officials leading the effort and in presenting more questions than answers. Whether or not the project’s voluntary “best practices”—which include a (possibly browser-based) “user-friendly flagging system” and an “effective and efficient notice and take action procedure”—would ever actually take effect was anyone’s guess.
Despite all the talk of “Internet companies [who] state clearly in their terms and conditions that they will not tolerate terrorist use of the Internet on their platforms, and how they define terrorism,” as was stated in thefinal conference document (PDF), there were hardly any representatives from the private sector. Based on a show of hands, only six people belonged to that category, with no participants from a search engine or a social network. There was one person who did work for a private, academic ISP.

US PUBLIC MAGNET high school allows Muslims time for prayer if they earn good grades

A high school near Washington DC has taken a rare step of accommodating Muslim prayer during class hours. Parkdale High School now allows a handful of its students to be excused to pray. The decision has made some Christian staffers "unhappy".

How is this not a disruptive form of prayer?

Compared with this which isn't allowed in public schools!

Prayer in Public School - Overview of Governing Constitutional Principles
The history of prayer in public school is a story of legal interpretation. The relationship between religion and government in the United States is governed by the First Amendment to the Constitution, which both prevents the government from establishing religion and protects privately initiated religious expression and activities from government interference and discrimination. The First Amendment thus establishes certain limits on the conduct of public school officials as it relates to religious activity, including prayer.

Parkdale High School or PHS is a public magnet high school located at 6001 Good Luck Road, Riverdale ParkMaryland 20737. The principal is Mrs. Cheryl Logan. The September 2009 enrollment is approximately 2,172-students in grades nine through twelve. Parkdale's schools hours are from 7:45am until 2:25pm. There is a mandatory uniform policy in effect at this school. Parkdale is an International Baccalaureate (IB)magnet school and features a school-wide America's Choice School Design signature program. Charles Carroll Middle School and William Wirt Middle School feed into Parkdale.


Magnet Programs were first implemented in PGCPS in 1985, to fulfill a court ordered desegregation mandate. Up until as late as the late-80s, Prince George's County had been predominately white in terms of racial demographics. In order to desegregate mostly all-White schools in the school system, PGCPS created several magnet programs that eventually were instituted in over fifty schools, spread throughout the county.
By the late-1990s, the population demographics of the county had shifted towards a mostly African American majority. 

Prince George County High School Principal Cheryl J. Logan said the initiative is in response to the “needs of the growing Muslim community,” the Washington Post reported. To be able to leave class each day all you need is a parental permission and high grades, Logan said. 
Currently, about 10 Muslim students have earned the right to pray, and are reportedly allowed eight minutes each day for a joint prayer on campus. Another high school student is working hard to raise his grades to join the group, all of whom belong to Muslim Students' Association, Logan said.
It is hoped that allowing prayer will motivate Muslim students to improve their overall school performance. 
The move has already upset several of the school's Christian staffers, many of whom remember when the school was a Christian institution. US public schools are secular by law, but are legally allowed to accommodate religious students’ practices, Logan explained.
I’ve been real happy with how we've been able to deal with it without it becoming an increasingly big issue," Logan said.
But Logan’s initiative may not have a happy ending, said Charels Haynes, director of the Religious Freedom Education Project at the Newseum: "Once you start down that road then you really are in a bind." Now, any student who asks to be excused from class for religious reasons must be accommodated, Haynes told the Washington Post.  MORE

DeBakey High School for Health Professions in HoustonTexas is a magnet school specializing in medical sciences
In education in the United States, magnet schools are public schools with specialized courses or curricula. "Magnet" refers to how the schools draw students from across the normal boundaries defined by authorities (usuallyschool boards) as school zones that feed into certain schools.

In 1962, the US Supreme Court established the current prohibition on state-sponsored prayer in schools, bringing the right to freely practice one's religion into conflict with the right to not to be subjected to proselytizing.
Legally, anyone is allowed to pray in school in the US, as long as the prayers are not officially sponsored by the school and do not disrupt others. In reality, such decisions often spark heated – and sometimes legal – objections from opponents.

The Holy See helped financially to fight Nazism


As reported in The Reason Darius Minor, Pius XII and the Holy See actively opposed Nazism during World War investing huge sums of money in U.S. companies that manufactured weapons and equipment for the Army ally. They did from U.S. soil since the beginning of the conflict transferred part of the financial reserves of the Church from the territories controlled by Hitler's Germany to the United States. The Washington government supported these movements, as shown by the fact that they were exempt from the restrictions provided for operations coming from enemy countries.

Darius Minor / The Reason ) deposited in U.S. banks like JP Morgan and National City Bank of New York (now Citibank), money, securities and gold reserves were used to help churches in the countries occupied by the Nazis and to fund humanitarian activities in favor of the Allies and of the European population. The money from the Holy See was also used to buy U.S. government debt and to invest in companies like Rolls Royce, United Steel Corporation, Dow Chemical, Westinghouse Electric, Union Carbide and General Electric, whose factories were supplied in the allied army to end Hitler's madness . There Vatican funds were also committed to Barclays.
This information was found in documents of the British secret services covering the period 1941-1943 by Patricia M. McGoldrick, Middlesex University, London, who has published an article about it in the December issue of the quarterly magazine of the University of Cambridge "The Historical Journal." His article, entitled "New Perspectives on Pius XII and the Vatican financial transactions during the Second World War ', uses the documents in the National Archives that relate to the activities of two agencies of the Holy See : the Institute for Works of Religion (IOR) and Section extraordinary for the administration of the property of the Holy See (Asss). "L'Osservatore Romano" McGoldrick reports the article in today's edition.

Denver International Airport holds some deep dark secrets

The Denver International Airport is a strange conglomeration of anomalies and underground tunnels. One of the first sign that there’s something strange afoot a DIA is the system of grotesque murals and sculptures situated around the airport that contain images of depressing content like dead children, women carrying dead babies, the destruction of cities and forests, poisonous plants, dead animals and oppressive soldiers, all depicting scenes of negative portent with ominous tones. According to symbologists, many of these works of “art” and gargoyles are comprised of Masonic imagery and symbols of secret societies that supposedly trigger certain kinds of thoughts and emotions.

Then there’s the dedication capstone with Masonic symbols and endorsed by the New World Airport Authority, and organization that can’t be contacted and doesn’t seem to exist, but carries the moniker of the “New World,” which is very close to the New World Order, the pinnacle of world domination ideology.  MORE

UN aims for biodiversity treaty by July 2012

A global treaty on the harvesting of genetic resources will probably be ratified by July 2012, the UN executive secretary on biological diversity said Tuesday.
Urban biodiversity is the variety and richness of living organisms (including genetic variation) and habitat diversity found in and on th e edge of human settlements. This biodiversity ranges from the rural fringe to the urban core. At the landscape and
habitat level it includes:
? Remnants of natural landscapes (e.g. leftovers of primeval forests).
? Traditional agricultural landscapes (e.g. meadows, areas of arable land).
? Urban–industrial landscapes (e.g. city centers, residential areas, industrial parks, railway areas, formal parks and gardens,
Diversity of plants and animals in the urban landscape shows some interesting patterns:
  1.  The number of plant species in urban areas often correlates with human population size—more so than it does with the size of the city area. 
  2. The age of the city affects species richness; large, older cities have more plant species than large, younger cities. 
  3. Diversity may correlate with economic wealth. For example, in Phoenix, USA, plant and bird diversity in urban neighborhoods and parks shows a significant positive correlation with median family income.
  4. Twenty percent of the world’s bird species and 5 percent of the vascular plant species occur in cities.
  5. On average, 70 percent of the plant species and 94 percent of the bird species found in urban areas are native to the surrounding region.

K12 Inc. Sued Over For-Profit Education Company’s Tax-Subsidized Funding Manipulation

This piece comes to us courtesy of a partnership between WHYY/NewsWorks and the Philadelphia Public School Notebook.
Dozens of former employees claim that K12 Inc, a for-profit education company, used dubious and sometimes fraudulent tactics to mask astronomical rates of student turnover in its national network of cyber charter schools.
K12 manages Agora, the second largest cyber charter in Pennsylvania. The company is also involved in pending applications to open two new cybers in the state. The Pennsylvania Department of Education is expected to decide on the proposals later this month.
The former employees allege that K12-managed schools aggressively recruited children who were ill-suited for the company’s model of online education. They say the schools then manipulated enrollment, attendance and performance data to maximize tax-subsidized per-pupil funding.
These claims by anonymous “confidential witnesses” are spelled out in court documents filed last June as part of a class-action lawsuit by the company’s investors.
Many of the allegations come from people who worked for the Agora Cyber Charter School, based in Wayne, Pa. With more than 8,000 students, Agora enrolls roughly a quarter of the 32,000 Pennsylvania students that have opted to attend cybers, which are independently managed schools providing mostly online instruction.
The class action suit against K12, Inc. and its executives was filed last January, shortly after a critical article about the company appeared in the New York Times. The investors allege that the company committed securities fraud when senior officials, including CEO Ronald J. Packard, “concealed from the market” information about high rates of student withdrawal and poor academic performance.
“The core omission behind the Defendants’ fraudulent success story was that K12 students were dropping out at staggering rates,” reads the complaint. MORE

Seven Thugs Beat Brimingham Teenage Mum with a Baseball bat, as she went out for nappies and milk for baby girl.

A teenage mum was beaten up by seven thugs in a terrifying attack as she went to buy nappies for her baby in Bordesley Green

A new mum may lose her eyesight after being brutally battered with baseball bats as she went to buy nappies and milk for her baby girl.
The 19-year-old was dragged from her car’s passenger seat by a gang of at least seven thugs who rammed the Volkswagen Golf in a stolen Vauxhall Corsa.
She suffered a broken cheekbone and eye socket in the attack while her husband suffered a leg wound.
The thugs responsible fled in a third car as brave witnesses rushed to help the woman.
The victim was too scared to be named but allowed the Mail to print pictures of her injuries. And the teenager’s mother said her eyesight was the main concern.
“They went out to buy nappies and milk formula and we have no idea why this happened.
The victim’s mother continued: “I am very grateful to the people who live nearby who brought her inside. She fainted on somebody’s staircase and there was blood everywhere.
“I want the people who did this brought to justice. My concern is that they will go an do this to somebody else. Somebody must know something.
“It makes no sense at all. We have no idea who they were or why they did this.
A West Midlands Police spokeswoman said: “Police received a number of calls about the incident.
“The victim’s silver Golf was involved in a collision with a Vauxhall Corsa.
“A number of men from the Corsa and a third unidentified car approached the Golf carrying weapons including baseball bats and sticks.
“They smashed the passenger window and attacked the female passenger and the driver. The passenger suffered a fractured left cheek bone and was dragged from the vehicle.

Canada tells Hungary’s Roma: Do not seek asylum here

Jason Kenney expresses ‘solidarity’ with the Roma, but designates Hungary a ‘safe’ country   DECEMBER 15, 2012  

The Minister’s purpose was, notionally, to announce the countries Canada has decided to designate as ‘safe.’
That list includes all the countries in the European Union (EU), including Hungary, except for Romania and Bulgaria, plus the United States and Croatia, 27 in all.
Asylum seekers from those “safe” countries will get 30 to 45 rather than the “regular” 60 days to present their cases to the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB).They will not have the right to appeal to the newly created Refugee Appeal Division. Nor will the Federal Court be able to stay their removal while it reviews IRB decisions.

Canada tells Hungary’s Roma: Do not seek asylum here

Thu, 24 Jan, 2013

Canada has long had an international reputation of welcoming refugees from around the world. But now it’s telling Hungary’s Roma community that that doesn’t apply to them.
The campaign began on Jan. 15 and, according to a spokesperson for Citizenship and Immigration Canada, is to last one month.
The billboards read, “An announcement from the Government of Canada: To deter abuse, Canada’s refugee system has changed. Asylum claims are evaluated within weeks instead of years. Applicants with unjustified immigration claims are sent home faster.”
The campaign appears to be part of the larger overhaul of the Canadian immigration system implemented by Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government in recent months. The Harper government passed sweeping and controversial changes to the immigration and refugee process here in December. At the time, it hinted at this new move by suggesting that “bogus refugees” would no longer be able to take advantage of Canadian’s generosity – statements widely held to have been directed at Roma coming to Canada.MORE
