Giving non-citizen immigrants the municipal vote , posted by AnnieO


Incumbent Toronto mayor David Miller then jumped on the bandwagon and said that he was in favour of giving non-citizen immigrants the municipal vote. According to Miller, "It's not like a national election; you're not determining issues of what this country should and shouldn't do. You're determining issues that directly affect people's lives."

Soon it will be No One Is Illegal. I do not jest. There is such an organization. In fact, I posted on it in May, I believe.

Don't give immigrants the right to vote -- i.e. before they become citizens . By Arthur Weinreb, October 25, 2006


Apparently, the situation in France has been growing worse though, if you listened to the MSM news on the weekend, they're "youths" or "children", "teenagers", "young men" ... not mostly young followers of Islam / Muslims ... You know, it was youth crime: France prepares 50,000 riot police against Muslim attacks. , EXCLUSIVE TO PJM By Paul Belien from Brussels Journal, Oct. 26, 06, posted by starboardside


An example: French interior minister sends extra riot police to Marseille after teens torch bus , Michael Allione, Oct. 29, 06, AP


Note the terms:

MARSEILLE, France (AP) - ... marauding teenagers ...

... anniversary of last year's riots in poor neighbourhoods where immigrants from former French colonies in Africa live with their French-born children on the fringes of society. [Did poverty cause the riots? Was it the root cause?]

On Saturday, 46 people were taken into custody, most of them in the communities around Paris, and two police officers were slightly injured. The most serious violence was the brutal bus attack in Marseille.

A group of young people burst onto the bus and tossed in a bottle of flammable liquid before fleeing, police said, citing witnesses' accounts. The resulting fire injured a 26-year-old woman, who suffered second-and third-degree burns on her arms, legs and face and was in a medically induced coma on Sunday. [....]

Extremist lawyer wants flag of Islam on Leinster House -- the Irish Parliament or Dáil, 19/10/2006 - 5:49:00 PM, starboardside

[....] Speaking in Dublin before addressing a Trinity College debate, Anjem Choudray also reiterated controversial views that Muslim violence is justified in certain circumstances.

The British-born lawyer, 39, angered the Irish Government last year when he said that Ireland risked becoming a target for a 9/11 style attack because it allowed US war planes to refuel at Shannon Airport.

Mr Choudray said: “As a Muslim, I believe Islam is superior to every other way of life and that it can resolve all the social and economic problems that Ireland suffers from.

“And as a symbol of that, the flag of Islam should be flown over the Dáil.

Hamas doesn't want to destroy Israel', posted by starboardside, Oct. 27, 06, from David Horovitz, THE JERUSALEM POST Oct. 26, 2006


Hamas wants to "liberate the Palestinians," not to destroy Israel, [Spain's] Javier Solana, the European Union's foreign policy chief, told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.

[....] He said, for instance, "I never thought the construction of the security wall was a good idea."

When it was suggested to him that the security barrier had saved hundreds of lives, he said, "I think there were other ways to do it. In any case, the wall should have been constructed on the line of '67."

He said that sometimes Israel's emphasis on security, however important, provided "more insecurity than security," and cited procedures at the Rafah crossing in this context. [....]

Remember, it was Spain that voted in a leftwing government and increased immigration from North Africa after Moroccans bombed the Atocha station trains (? check exact reference). Does he really believe appeasing terrorists works?

That's Jim Judd of CSIS.

Update Oct. 31, 06: I should have attributed this to Stewart Bell, National Post, Oct. 28, 06, entitled "Al-Qaeda warns Canada Quit Afghan mission or endure attack like 9/11, threat says"

This is so important that I decided to add this excerpt for those who did not link and read.

At a conference yesterday, Jim Judd, director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, said the Internet had "assumed enormous importance" among today's terrorists.

"It has in some respects been transformed into a terrorist university, obviating the past need for travel to a conflict zone for 'on-the-job training.' "

He said successful attacks are videotaped and transmitted online and recipes for bombs made of commercially available ingredients are on the Internet as well as tips on what to do when arrested.

"It is, as well, developing into a medium of radicalization for many who are inspired by a variety of propaganda tools flowing across it. Inspirational rallying cries from far-flung proponents of terrorism or videos of attacks on military forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and elsewhere circulate freely."

[....] A tightening of state policy in the religious realm is also becoming a visible trend in other Central Asian countries. In Tajikistan, the republic government's Committee on Religious Affairs has drafted a law on religion that restricts believers' rights even more drastically than in Uzbekistan. About half a year ago, Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev approved parliament-sponsored amendments to a law on religion, demanding mandatory registration of all religious communities and increasing fines for "illegal religious activities."

Wasn't it ex-PM Jean Chretien who was in that area on business? Take care ... or travel in the right circles.
