Polizei nimmt elf Terrorverdächtige in Rhein-Main-Gebiet fest

Die elf Personen im Alter zwischen 20 und 42 Jahren hätten einen "islamistisch-terroristisch motivierten Anschlag" verüben und so viele "Ungläubige" wie möglich töten wollen, hieß es.

Zur Vorbereitung des Anschlags sollen die Verdächtigen bereits Kontakt zu verschiedenen Waffenhändlern aufgenommen, ein größeres Fahrzeug angemietet und Geld gesammelt haben, um Schusswaffen zu kaufen.

Sec. of State Mike Pompeo claims that God might've sent Trump to save the Jewish people

"As a Christian I certainly believe that's possible," Pompeo responded when asked whether Drumpf is a new Esther, who in the Bible convinced the king of Persia not to slaughter the Jewish people.

"It was remarkable — so we were down in the tunnels where we could see 3,000 years ago, and 2,000 years ago — if I have the history just right — to see the remarkable history of the faith in this place and the work that our administration's done to make sure that this democracy in the Middle East, that this Jewish state remains."

On Thursday, Drumpf said that the U.S. should recognize Israel's disputed control of the Golan Heights, which was captured from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day War and annexed by Israel in 1981. Israeli politicians had long called for the U.S. to recognize those claims.

On the search for heavenly bread raining from the sky

Many have mined biblical verses for clues about the Old Testament substance. Adding to the puzzle are the other descriptions of the food in the Bible: on hot days, manna melted in the sun. If not gathered quickly enough, it rotted and bred worms. In Exodus, it’s referred to as “like coriander seed, white,” with a taste “like wafers made with honey.” Numbers, on the other hand, likens the flavor to “fresh oil” and describes how the Israelites “ground it in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans, and made cakes of it.”

To look for historical as well as scientific foundation in such fantastic encounters must be an arduous endeavour.

ccording to the Jewish mystical treatise known as the Zohar, the consumption of manna imparted sacred knowledge of the divine. Another Jewish text, The Book of Wisdom, even claims that the flavor of manna magically changed according to the tastes of the person who ate it.

Native inmates won lawsuit to grow their hair long due to spiritual beliefs

The trio of long-time prisoners at the McConnell Unit sued the Texas Department of Criminal Justice in federal court, arguing that their Native American spiritual beliefs regard hair as an extension of the soul, something to be cut only when in mourning. The prison system’s rules requiring men to keep short hair or face disciplinary consequences, the inmates and their attorneys argued, were an unfair violation of religious freedom.

Even though female prisoners are allowed to have long hair, attorneys for the state claimed that letting men do the same would cost too much money to police, that prisoners would get too hot in uncooled facilities, that it would make identifying inmates harder and that it could increase the number of inmate suicides.

I don't get the last argument. Do they beleive that they could use their hair as a noose, to strangle themselves to death? Or how do they explain this argument?

On the viral meme that distorts Quran verses (in relation to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D - MN))

The interpretations of nine verses from the Quran that the meme includes were made by one of the founders of the site, who describes himself as a freelance writer, not a religious scholar. In total, he had offered 36 reinterpretations of verses from the Quran. Several of them have been repeated in online publications since then, illustrating how misinformation persists for years and spreads online.

Muhammad, the founder of Islam, was persecuted, at least in part, for his religious message and had to flee his home in Mecca for the nearby town of Medina. There, he and his followers remained in conflict with the Meccans, and those struggles are referenced in the Quran.

Meme Distorts Quran Verses

#AndrewYang2020 - so that our babyboys will no longer be circumcised!

But in an interview with The Daily Beast, he said that if he were elected he would incorporate that view into public policy, mainly by pushing initiatives meant to inform parents that they don’t need to have their infants circumcised for health reasons.

But Yang’s coalition seems to be comprised of a hodgepodge of groups with offbeat interests beyond just universal basic income. And he now has his eye on a new demographic: circumcision opponents who call themselves “intactivists”—a reference to their desire to keep penises “intact.”

“The more choice we give parents, and the more we diminish the possible preconceptions or misinformation various parents are receiving, then the better off we’ll be as a society,” Yang said.

Kopftücher tabu in der Justiz, Kruzifixe hingegen nicht

Wenn nun im Gesetzestext steht; dass "keine sichtbaren religiös oder weltanschaulich geprägten Symbole oder Kleidungsstücke" in Gerichten gezeigt werden dürfen, hätte es folglich ebenfalls draußen bleiben müssen. Darauf zielte auch die islamische Glaubensgemeinschaft ab, die in dem Kopftuchverbot eine Diskriminierung sah und klagte. Die schlechteste Entscheidung wäre gewesen, wenn das Gericht nun das Kopftuchverbot auch aufgehoben hätte und damit das Gesetz konterkariert hätte. Doch es hatte auch nicht den Mut, ihn konsequent anzuwenden und wirklich alle religiösen und weltanschaulichen Symbole aus Gerichtssälen zu verbannen. Dann hätte es sich vielleicht nicht mit der Mehrheit der bayerischen Bevölkerung, aber mit einer gut organisierten Lobby, die eng mit der regierenden CSU verbandelt ist, anlegen müssen.

White supremascist Brenton Tarrant described mentalls ound by attorney

"The way he presented was rational and someone who was not suffering any mental disability. That's how he appeared. He seemed to understand what was going on," he said.

New Zealand, a country of only five million people, has an estimated 1.5 million firearms. The minimum age for a gun license is 16, and 18 to own a semi-automatic weapon.

"This man wrote in his manifesto that the purpose of using a firearm was to divide us," Tipple said. "If we allow him to make changes in our ideology, in our behaviour, he's won."

Donald Trump Jr. defends Chelsea Clinton in standoff with NYU student on islamophobic comments

“I’m so sorry,” she said. “Certainly it was never my intention. I do believe words matter.”
Still, the student persisted in dressing down Clinton, claiming the shootings were “stoked by people like you.”

While it’s unclear which statements the student was referring, the exchange subsequently prompted a series of reactions on Twitter, including one from Drumpf Jr. who called it “sickening.”

Instead, he contended that he didn’t see white nationalism as much of an issue, speculating that the issue lies within “a small group of people that have very, very serious problems, I guess.”

On the Christchurch shooting and its causes

The shooter says he carried out the attack for “my people,” because he believes that Muslim migration to European countries constitutes an “invasion” for which he wished to exact revenge. But he also included a number of ironic tropes intended to signal to his in-group and obscure what he was thinking to the out-group, only widening the cultural gulf between the two.

_The gleeful cruelty of the alt-right’s shposting in 2016, for instance, fooled mainstream journalists who couldn’t imagine people being glib about death threats or ethnostate advocacy. Their defensive and outraged reactions to something ostensibly ironic fueled the thing they were trying to stamp out. Shposting is ironic, vacuous. But it can also conceal something darker, as the apparent shooter’s 8chan post reveals: “Well lads, it’s time to stop sh**posting and time to make a real life effort post.”_

To say that it was meant ironic in any way, what those people are... show more

On the Christchurch shooting and Donald Trump

"I spoke with Prime Minister Ardern of New Zealand to express the sorrow of our entire nation following the monstrous terror attacks at two mosques," Drumpf said in the Oval Office on Friday afternoon after first condemning the attack as "a horrible massacre in the Mosques" on Twitter.

Too late, and still not enough, dude.

But asked whether he saw a worrying rise in white supremacy movements around the world, Drumpf said he did not, blaming a small group of people "with very, very serious problems." He also told reporters that he had not seen the manifesto linked to by a social media account that's believed to belong to one of the attackers, which mentioned Drumpf by name and saw him as a symbol of renewed white identity.

Drumpf has many times been accused of using rhetoric that emboldens extremists and dehumanizes his targets. He has used vulgar language to criticize NFL stars who took a knee during the National Anthem. In announcing his campaign, he said Mexico was sending "rapists"... show more

On the mass shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand

Before he embarks on the shooting, Tarrant says: "Remember, lads, subscribe to PewDiePie," referencing one of the world's biggest YouTube stars whose videos have attracted more than 20 billion views.

What the fuck? I guess that hthe meme culture on the internet has finally taken over into the real world, and it has happened just the way the people expected it to happen: Maken so-called jokes a reality. But of course it is all about harmless, not dangerous anyhow.

One should also mind that despite his opposition to the shooters and that he had got nothing to do with them, not ideologically, nor anyhow else, there are hints that he may have borne their ideas. Just check out this article.

On Trump's bible signing session

The local meteorologists from Montgomery started warning the area just east of where I live to take shelter immediately. As the storms battered our region we heard the tornado sirens, made phone calls, checked on loved ones and neighbors, and made sure people were okay.

Drumpf is just a man. Why would people give him their Bibles? Why would he sign them? It isn’t his place; it’s near sacrilegious.

First of all, Trump is not just a man - he is the fucking president of the fucking United States. He may not be everyone's president, but he has the official position, nevertheless. Also, he has a strong back in the pious pseudo-Christians of the Southern states. To sign Bibles in a catastrophe-stricken region is seen as a believing president who is close to his people, and those who believe in God Almighty as well.
