Lot's of symbolism there.  I can't understand what they are saying, so I don't know if this is good or bad, but to have it be that big, I'm thinking it is an honor to President Trump.

 Now there's something to give the Deep State to talk about.   tinylaughing This is how people around the world are viewing our President right now.  Too bad all the American people don't feel the same way.

Would you know if not posted by individuals on social media?

FAKE NEWS attempting to 'CONTROL' the narrative by not providing coverage?
Do the protests in EU go against the narrative that majority of people are for globalism, open borders, and mass immigration?
1. Dilution of citizen voice
2. Dilution of citizen vote
3. Dilution of national independence
>Police turned against its own citizens
>Citizens turned against its own police
>People v People

If the news doesn't report the facts (ie, truth) - how do people get informed in order to be heard?
Silence the people.
Localize disruption.
Target leaders of disruption (quietly take action).
Deploy scare tactics & political cross-talk
Control volume.
The media no longer represents the will of the people.
Think for yourself.
Research for yourself.

'A man has been shot dead after wounding at least two pedestrians with a knife in the centre of Marseille.
The attack occurred at about 16:45 local time (15:45 GMT) on Tuesday afternoon in the Canebière area
of the city, which is France's second largest.

Police said they opened fire after the man, who has not been named, threatened officers with a weapon.
The prosecutor's office has said the attack was not politically motivated.

"It's a common law assault," prosecutor Xavier Tarabeux said.
At least one other pedestrian was reportedly injured during the confrontation with police...'

And after Rotherham, the next one in the dock is the Bradford case.
Let's ruminate on a possible connection.

Quote:Bradford grooming: Nine jailed for abusing girls

'Nine men who raped and abused two teenage girls who were living in a children's home have been jailed.
The girls were aged 14 when the men first began to use drink, drugs and violence to groom and sexually
exploit them.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5366]
(From top left, clockwise) Basharat Khaliq, Saeed Akhtar, Naveed Akhtar, Parvaze Ahmed, Zeeshan Ali,
Fahim Iqbal, Izar Hussain, Mohammed Usman and Kieran Harris were all jailed at Bradford Crown Court.

Bradford Crown Court heard the abuse started after the girls moved into the home in 2008.
The nine were convicted of 22 offences including rape and inciting child prostitution.
A tenth defendant was cleared of rape.

One of the women, Fiona Goddard, decided to waive her legal right to life-long anonymity to show other victims
of abuse "there is nothing to be ashamed of".

Sentencing the men to jail terms ranging from 20 years to 18 months, Judge Durham Hall QC said: "You appear
not to have shown any respect for the minimum standards of decent behaviour."
During the trial, which lasted more than six weeks, prosecutor Karma Melly QC said the gang had taken advantage
of the girls' age and situation. She said: "Some of the defendants were actually forceful, threatening and violent,
others used alcohol and drugs, others created a manipulated relationship in order to facilitate their sexual exploitation."

Reading from an impact statement, Ms Goddard, 25, told the court: "I can't change what's happened, but I can rebuild
my life."

The jury heard it was Basharat Khaliq who first met the girls in 2008, when he was 27 and they were both 14, before
taking them to a petrol station and buying them a bottle of vodka.

Over the following years he groomed and repeatedly raped one of the girls and on one occasion abused Ms Goddard.
At about the same time the girls also separately met brothers Saeed and Naveed Akthar, with much of the abuse taking
place at Saeed's former address on Saffron Drive.

'Used as a prostitute'
Ms Melly said: "Fiona was used for sex by the men that came to the property.
"She was used by Saeed to get drugs and bring them back, she was told to go and meet dealers and to ensure she
came back with drugs though she was given no money for them.
"She was in effect used as a prostitute on his instruction."

The allegations came to light in 2014 when Ms Goddard saw a report on the grooming and sexual abuse of hundreds
of young girls in Rotherham on BBC Look North. She asked her then partner to contact the BBC to say that similar abuse
was happening elsewhere and the BBC "quite properly" notified police.

Statement from Fiona Goddard
I would like to take this opportunity to explain why I decided to waive my anonymity.
It's because I wanted to show anyone who has gone through, or is going through, anything similar that there is nothing to be
ashamed of. Crimes like these haven't always been dealt with appropriately in the past, but I am proud to say that the police
and other services are working really hard to change this and the stigma surrounding it.

I would like to assure people that if they did come forward, they would be believed and supported.
Speaking outside court, Fiona Goddard told the BBC: "These men have influenced every aspect of my life, for as long as I can
remember. "Today, I got to stand in front of them and take that control back and know that they are never going to impact my life

Judge Hall told the courtroom: "Your primary victim sits in court and that lady has shown the utmost courage.
"No doubt for years she felt she had no voice and that she was powerless - well she's got a voice now."
He added: "No major city in England and Wales seems to have been spared this problem of grooming by older men acting
together or alone."

*Yasar Majid, 37, of Milton Keynes, was cleared of rape

Nazir Afzal, former Chief Crown Prosecutor in north-west England, said: "Everybody responsible for the safeguarding of
these young girls and every other victim has failed them. "The police don't have the resources, the prosecutors don't have
the resources and most importantly the community groups don't have the resources and I think we will be in this position
and I will be having this conversation for years to come."

A statement from Bradford Council said: "The Safeguarding Board will look closely at this case to see if there are any lessons
we can learn that could help us keep young people safer."...'

So basically speaking, Nazir Afzal, former Chief Crown Prosecutor is saying get used to it.
Affirmation for Mayor Sadiq Khan.

No loose ends.

Quote:Ex-spy linked to Congo assassination plot found dead.

'A former French intelligence officer linked to a plot to kill an opponent of Congo-Brazzaville's president has been found shot dead.
Daniel Forestier's body was found with five bullet wounds to the head and heart in a remote car park on the shores of Lake Geneva.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5524]
The alleged target of an assassination plot, former Congolese Colonel Ferdinand Mbaou.

He had worked in the General Directorate of External Security, France's equivalent of Britain's MI6.
French police say they are treating the killing as a professional hit.

In September, Mr Forestier was charged -together with a former directorate colleague -of plotting to kill General Ferdinand Mbaou,
the former head of Congo's presidential guard. Gen Mbaou, seen as an opponent of President Denis Sassou Nguesso, has been
living in France for 20 years. Three years ago he survived being shot in the back.

'He never gave details of what he did'
Mr Forestier, the author of several spy novels, had denied being involved in any plot against Gen Mbaou, but French police believe
there may be a link between that and Mr Forestier's brutal killing.

Lawyers for Mr Forestier and the colleague charged along with him say both men had feared for their safety after news of the alleged
plot and their identities were shared on social media.

A local radio station in Haute-Savoie, France Bleu, said that Mr Forestier lived in the village of Lucinges, nine miles (15 km) from
where his body was found, with his wife and two children. He had served as a local councillor until he was placed under investigation
last September.

"He'd written several spy novels, but he never gave us any details of what he did," Jean-Luc Soulat, the mayor of Lucinges, told
France Bleu. "He was very well settled here. He ran a bar-tobacconist here and only 15 days ago he helped me organise the
opening of a village hall."

French newspaper Le Monde reported that Mr Forestier had been heard admitting that he was part of a group formed to kill Gen Mbaou,
who was in a town north of Paris, but told investigators that he later realised the plot was "not possible"...'

You know how Wallfire has been banging-on about how an 'agenda' seems on the books in regards of
the 'no-borders' immigration of Asians and others of the Middle East?

Some might think he's paranoid or just envious as these travelling communities of a certain ideology set
up their ways and use the fiscal benefits of the countries that the European Union demands they accept.

Of course, to argue that such use of taxpayers monies seems biased when those same nations also burden
the behavior of the extreme aspects of that ideology is called 'being racist' and so, everyone is afraid and
everyone is silent.

Wallfire being paranoid, envious... or just ahead of the game.

Quote:Gangsters with links to the 7/7 London bombings stole £8billion from British taxpayers in
20-year fraud before funnelling cash to Pakistan to support Osama Bin Laden

*Gangsters stole billions via VAT fraud, benefit fraud, credit card and mortgage fraud
over 20 years including £8bn directly from UK taxpayers, files show

*They channelled £80 million to Al Qaeda terror operations and Osama Bin Laden

*Criminals 'infiltrated government agencies and the Post Office' to create fake IDs

'A network of fraudsters stole billions of pounds from taxpayers in a 20-year crime spree on an industrial scale,
funneling tens of millions to terrorists including Osama Bin Laden, according to police and intelligence files.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5533]

A cross-check of the massive fraud with secret intelligence files showed some of the money
was diverted to Osama Bin Laden.
The compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, where Osama Bin Laden spent his last five years, and
where he was killed by US special forces in 2011. Some of the money stolen from UK taxpayers
ended up here, according to intelligence reports.

An investigation by The Sunday Times has revealed how a sprawling gang of British Asians infiltrated government
departments, associated with Abu Hamza and one of the 7/7 bombers, bought Ferraris with personalised plates
and cosied up to politicians including Tony Blair -all while keeping their operations so secretive investigators had
to resort to tying a camera to a dog to glean intelligence from inside one of their factories.

The files show four HMRC investigators pleaded with bosses to prosecute the crimelords but were rebuffed -and one
claims he was prevented from sharing HMRC data with MI5 because the Revenue wanted to maintain the confidentiality
of the terror suspects' tax records.

HMRC told MailOnline it 'can, has always, and does' pass information on to intelligence agencies 'within minutes if
necessary' and that confidentiality 'doesn't come into it'.

An estimated £8bn was stolen from the taxpayer through scams including benefit fraud and a massive VAT swindle
The sum, equivalent to the GDP of Kyrgystan or Kosovo, is three times as much as the Government spends on MI5,
MI6 and GCHQ each year.

The gang is alleged to have sent one per cent of the money - £80 million - to al-Qaeda in Pakistan and Afghanistan,
where it was spent on madrasas and terrorist training camps. MI5 sources say prior to his death in 2011 some of the
money had reached Osama Bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

The true scale of the gang's profits, augmented by mortgage fraud, credit card fraud, and investments of the stolen cash,
is unknown. Some members of the syndicate have received and in some cases even finished jail terms -of a combined
100 years for frauds worth £100m -since the crimes first came to light in 1995, but the public has been prevented from
hearing about the case or the identities of the wrongdoers by court orders.

The Crown Prosecution Service insists reporting might prejudice potential trials of the gang's ringleaders -despite the fact
the kingpins fled the country years ago and are believed to be in hiding in the Middle East.

Last night Meg Hillier, chairwoman of the public accounts committee, told the Sunday Times said she would consider
launching a parliamentary inquiry and would question Sir Mark Sedwill, the cabinet secretary and national security
adviser to the prime minister, tomorrow.

Authorities first became aware of the schemes in 1995 when an English rural force heard from an extremely frightened'
source that gang members were perpetrating mortgage fraud with 'carrier bags full of cash' using false identities, with
the help of corrupt bankers.

A four-year investigation by the Inland Revenue pooled intelligence from tax, customs, police, immigration and trading
standards and put suspects under surveillance. It concluded that the gang was using a network of factories and companies
and exploiting their workers for identity and benefit frauds, the sale of counterfeit goods, car crash scams and mortgage
and credit card frauds.

HMRC found the gang used 'hijacked or altered national insurance numbers to create false records' and exploited 'illegal
immigrant labour' before laundering the cash 'through bogus offshore companies'.

An undercover HMRC officer reported that hook-handed cleric Abu Hamza recruited young Muslims to work for the crime
syndicate in the late 1990s, years before he became infamous as an al-Qaeda recruiter.
A source said the factories which employed those workers Hamza recruited had extra staff who 'were ghosts claiming
benefits and having car crashes'.

The source added: 'A factory of 180 workers only had 120 physical workers. The rest were identity frauds with all proceeds
going back to the owners of the companies. This generated around £20,000 a week in benefit claims alone.'

But the gang proved extremely difficult to penetrate, the report says. Undercover agents eventually resorted to attaching a
camera to a dog and encouraging it to run around inside one of the network's factories just to find out how many people
actually worked there.

The gang's biggest money-maker was so-called 'carousel fraud', a complex and industrial-scale swindle in which four
companies, two in the UK and two in the EU, 'sell' goods to each other with some of the firms 'reclaiming' VAT from the
British government, while others never pay the VAT bill they rack up.

Quote:[i]"How to steal a billion pounds: Carousel fraud
The UK gang infiltrated government agencies and funneled money to Islamist terror cells,
according to police and intelligence files. One method was said to be so-called 'carousel

1. Gang controls firms in UK and EU[/i]

2. Company A (in EU) sells goods VAT-free to Company B (in UK)

3. Company B adds VAT at 20% and sells goods to company C (in UK). Company B should pay
that VAT to the taxman, but instead it disappears, owing vast sums.

4. Company C sells goods to Company D (in EU) and [because it has not sold the goods to an
end-consumer] Company C 'legally' reclaims all the VAT from HMRC.

5. Repeat: Company D (in EU) sells goods VAT-free to Company E (in UK). 

Profits, laundered via money brokers and disgraced Caribbean bank First Curacao International,
go into trusts to buy commercial property; 1 per cent is diverted to terrorism.


Quote:How to steal a billion pounds: Identity fraud, benefit fraud, mortgage fraud and credit card fraud
The gang also engaged in identity fraud, and then profited from those fake IDs to rip off credit card
firms, banks, the taxman and the NHS.

ID fraud 
1. Gang member infiltrates benefits agency

2. Obtains NI numbers issued to children

3. Passes to factory owner to create 'ghost' workers

Benefit fraud
The fictional person -the 'ghost' - alleged to be working in the factory can then claim: working tax credit
to top up part-time earnings; housing benefit; and once they have obtained an NHS number can sell it
to foreigners needing care.

Mortgage fraud
The 'ghost' can buy a house and have a corrupt valuer increase its value, perhaps after falsified 'renovations'.
then the criminals obtain a 95 per cent loan against the property in the name of the ghost, using a corrupt agent.
After the ghost fails to make payments, the property is repossessed and auctioned. Repeat.

Credit card fraud 
With access to an empty property, the criminals used false identities to submit multiple credit card application at
once. When the cards arrived, they spent up to the limit, sold on the goods they bought, and never paid the bills. 


Investigators concluded the gang had gained more than £1 billion from illegitimate VAT rebates in a single postcode area.
A major break in the case came in the months after 9/11 when, on abandoned laptops found by the CIA in mountains on
the Afghan/Pakistan border, intelligence officers discovered al-Qaeda's money was coming in part from an accountant
in an English town.

He was a major player in the network, which afforded its ringleaders UK properties and supercars with personalised plates,
all at the taxpayer's expense. For years HMRC and other agencies did little to disrupt the network, taking almost no formal
enforcement action. The files show that at least four rank-and-file HMRC intelligence officers implored their bosses to launch
Their requests were rejected 'due to their complicated nature and a lack of resources'.

When the 9/11 attacks occurred in 2001, one official warned HMRC chiefs that he had 'basic information' that would be of great
interest to MI5. Internal files seen by The Sunday Times show the officer said he was 'ready to meet someone from the intelligence
services' with the 'mountains of information available to us' that had 'taken on a whole new significance' after the attacks on
New York and the Pentagon.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5535]
52 people were killed in the 7/7 bombings, the worst loss of life in a terror attack on the British
mainland since Lockerbie.
One HMRC investigator was 'ready to meet with the security services' but his request was refused,
according to the report, because HMRC was worried about preserving the taxpayer confidentiality
of the terror suspects. Pictured: MI6 headquarters at Vauxhall Cross.

'Officers and, increasingly, their direct management have become frustrated at the lack of action,' wrote the officer.
His request was refused because HMRC was worried about preserving the taxpayer confidentiality of the terror suspects.

An HMRC spokesman told MailOnline today: 'HMRC can, has always, and does pass information (within minutes if necessary) to
other law enforcement agencies and the intelligence services when dealing with serious crime or terrorism –taxpayer confidentiality
doesn't come into it.

'HMRC takes its critical role in the fight against serious organised crime and terrorism very seriously.
We work side-by-side with the intelligence services, law enforcement partners, and across Government, to break up criminal gangs
and disrupt terror funding.

'In 2017-18 alone, we collected and protected more than £3.3 billion through our work fighting organised crime, and have brought
more than 880 organised criminals to justice since 2010.'

The report found widespread infiltration of government agencies, to obtain false identities and 'sensitive information'.
From one company investigators found '20 potential internal fraud cases including [gang] members in government agencies',
one intelligence summary said. Another said two Post Office employees seemed to be helping falsify documents, concluding:
'infiltration is widespread'.

Thousands were given by the gang to the then-ruling Labour Party.
An internal HMRC report said: 'There are numerous [gang] members involved in think tanks and business forums which bring
them into contact with senior British politicians.

'I myself have seen one member shoulder to shoulder with Tony Blair on at least two occasions following the war in Iraq.'
The files also show that the gang enjoyed links with a top politician in Pakistan.

There is no suggestion that Blair was aware of the alleged crimes.

HMRC intelligence officers also identified the gang's links to Shehzad Tanweer, a terrorist involved in the 7/7 London bombings in
2005 which killed 52 people, at least two years before the attack. Associates of Tanweer, who who detonated a bomb while travelling
eastbound on the Circle Line between Liverpool Street and Aldgate, killing himself and seven others., were suspected of 'multi-identity
fraud, phoenix trading, tax evasion, tax credit fraud and money laundering', according to the files.

Shehzad Tanweer, one of the suicide bombers who hit London on July 7, 2005. Two years previously
the HMRC investigation - not shared with MI5 - identified associates of his.
Years before he became well-known as an Al Qaeda recruiter and hate cleric, Abu Hamza recruited
young British Muslims to help with the fraudulent schemes.

Many suspects identified by the 1990s investigation were prosecuted, with second-tier members of the gang charged with carousel
fraud and money laundering.

In the course of cross-checking HMRC files with secret MI5 intelligence, the CPS found the 'jaw-dropping' link, a source told the paper;
that 'MI5 had information that the ultimate destination for some of the money was Osama bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad.'
However, senior HMRC officials declined to use the intelligence to mount prosecutions and take the gang out of operation until after the

Some more fun news from Finland. If people remember Oulu in Finland where  muslims raped children, and the mosque was used to rape at least one child, well a Finnish TV investigative program called MOT found out some very interesting facts about the imam of this mosque.
Note that the imam never apologizes for what was done or for what his firm was involved in. Never said what happened was un Islamic, but it is also interesting that he belongs to the SDP ( social democratic party) and part of the people who control the city.
Below is a google translate

Quote:Oulu's imam's son-in-law and partner died in Isis' ranks in Syria
Those who have become Isis fighters have run pizzerias and transport companies in Finland, for example, says Yle's MOT program. MOT explained the financing of terrorism in cooperation with European broadcasters.

MOT tells us that one of Isi's owners has owned the company with the Imul Abdul Mannan of Oulu. Mannan confirms in MOT's interview that he is the husband of his daughter.

The couple left for Syria in 2014, and in 2017 Isis told about the man's death. Mannan says he is not responsible for the radicalization of his relatives.

- If someone decides something on their own, without asking us, the responsibility is alone, Mannan told MOT.

According to MOT, Mannan has also served as an Islamic teacher and SDP deputy commissioner at the City Council of Oulu.

It just shows how Europe has been played as fools with too much money and little sense.
These alleged 'migrants' supposedly arrive without a penny to their name and when the time is right, they
travel back to their IS homelands -after sending monies there from the guilt-ridden liberals, and kill those
who don't adhere to their principles.

Then, when they're captured or surrender, they mockingly plead to come back where they can listen to more

Quote:At least seven from my university joined IS, says captured fighter.

'An Islamic State fighter held in Syria has told the BBC he was one of at least seven students and ex-students
from University of Westminster to join IS.

Zakariyya Elogbani abandoned a degree in business management which he was taking at the university in 2014.
Another student had been studying while on a terror protection order which was made less restrictive by a judge,
a BBC investigation has found.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5537]
(Left) Zakariyya Elogbani ®, pictured with fellow former Westminster student, Ishak Mostefaoui, now also detained in Syria.
(Right) Akram Sabah ®, pictured with his brother Mohammed, finished his Westminster University degree in 2011.

University of Westminster says it takes its safeguarding duty "very seriously".
This is not the first time that students at the university have been linked to violent jihadism -the notorious IS killer
Mohammed Emwazi, known as Jihadi John, studied there until 2009.
The BBC's investigation now exposes the secret funnelling of fighters and funds from the UK to IS in Syria.

Elogbani, who grew up in east London, was captured by Kurdish forces in Syria nine months ago.
Speaking to the BBC's Middle East Correspondent Quentin Sommerville, Elogbani said: "Obviously we came here
intending to fight. That's the honest truth. But I don't think it was a love for blood."

He said there was a group at University of Westminster who had already left for Syria before he even began his studies.
"They kind of opened the way," he added.
That may have been a reference to Mohammed Emwazi, who studied information systems at the university and left for
Syria in 2013. He became infamous after appearing in videos in which he killed Western hostages.
Emwazi died in a missile strike in November 2015.

Elogbani denied knowing him but admitted seeing another of the British kidnap gang, known as The Beatles, in Syria.
Another former University of Westminster student who went to Syria was Akram Sabah, a recruitment consultant who
left the university in 2011 with a degree in biomedical sciences.
He and his older brother Mohammed were killed in fighting in September 2013.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5538]
Mohammed Emwazi appeared in videos in which he killed Western hostages.

The BBC investigation reveals that Elogbani travelled with fellow Westminster student Ishak Mostefaoui.
His Algerian family had settled in London when Mostefaoui was five. He was a popular, football-loving boy, brought up
in a home that was opposed to extremism but his father, Abderrahmane, told the BBC that his son changed in 2013.
He believes his son was radicalised by people at University of Westminster.

In April 2014 Mostefaoui told his father that he was going to Amsterdam for a few days, leaving with just a small bag.
The family did not hear from him for a month when he called to say he was in Syria. His father says he collapsed when
he heard the news.

Around five months ago, Mostefaoui had his British citizenship revoked. Two months later he was badly injured when his
house was bombed in an attack in which his wife and young son were killed. He is currently in detention.
Elogbani says another three fellow students left around the same time as him and have since been killed.
He claims one, Ibrahim, was killed in the siege of Raqqa, while Abu Talha "died in the desert of Anbar" and Abu Ubaydah
was killed in Tikrit, Iraq.

The BBC has not been able to establish all of their identities but one of them was Qasim Abukar, a hardened jihadist who
previously fought with a militant group in Somalia.

The terror suspect
Abukar became a student at University of Westminster in September 2012.
He played a key role in radicalising Elogbani, according to friends who have spoken to the BBC but do not wish to be identified.
Abukar had been known to security services for years.
He absconded from Britain to Somalia during a trial in 2009, in which he was accused of attempting to travel to Afghanistan for
terrorism. He was acquitted in his absence.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5539]
(Left) MI5 had warned that allowing Qasim Abukar more contact with fellow students would increase the risk he posed.
(Right) Makhzumi Abukar was jailed for seven years after pleading guilty in 2016 to a million-pound fraud.

A separate High Court appeal heard that in Somalia, Abukar was "involved in fighting" alongside the militant group al-Shabaab
and tried to recruit fighters in the UK for overseas operations. The court was told he was "potentially involved in attack planning"
against Western interests.

In 2011, after a period in custody in Somalia, he returned to the UK claiming he had been mistreated with the knowledge of the
British state. He was placed on a control order and a Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measure, or TPIM, to restrict his

TPIMs can be imposed on terror suspects, who officials decide can neither be charged nor deported, but who are nevertheless
assessed to be potentially involved in terrorist-related activities. Despite being described in court as having played a "substantial
role" in his extremist network, Abukar began studying at University of Westminster a year later.

Because he had "a track record of absconding", he had to report daily to a local police station and wear an electronic tag.
But in April 2013 he won an appeal to reduce one of the restrictions on his movements when a High Court judge permitted him to
interact more with fellow students, despite warnings from MI5 that it would mean "the risk of him engaging in terrorism-related activity".

This was in the period during which friends and relatives of people close to Elogbani and Mostefaoui noticed their views were becoming
extreme. They have told the BBC that Abukar was one of the people involved in radicalising them.

The terror fundraiser
Another key extremist at University of Westminster was Abukar's brother Makhzumi.
He is serving a seven-year jail term after pleading guilty in 2016 to a million-pound fraud to steal the savings of pensioners.
The scheme was uncovered by Scotland Yard's Counter Terrorism Command, who suspected the money was being funnelled
to extremists in Syria.

Court documents, seen by the BBC, reveal that when his home was searched in July 2014, only weeks after Elogbani and Mostefaoui
had left the UK, notes found in his jacket recorded a series of financial transfers to a town on the Turkish/Syrian border known as ISIS
International, because of its popularity as a handover point for foreign jihadists.

A University of Westminster spokesperson told the BBC that the university "has a strong pastoral and interfaith focus

providing care and support to its community of 20,000 students from more than 150 countries".

In 2015 it commissioned an independent report after details emerged that Emwazi had been a student there.
Fiyaz Mughal, one of the authors of that report, told the BBC: "The university failed to understand its duty of care around
confronting and countering extremist views.

"But more importantly it didn't even understand its duty of care and didn't understand the concept of things like Islamism
and extremism." Mughal was concerned that the Islamic Society at the university, in which Elogbani was active, was "allowed
to run its own fiefdom" where women and LGBT students were treated with hostility.

The BBC has spoken to former members of the university's Islamic Society, who deny that there was a culture of extremism.
Meanwhile Elogbani, stripped of his British citizenship, waits to find out his fate.
He cuts a forlorn figure in detention in Syria, having lost his legs in what he says was a missile attack in 2015.
His is a cautionary tale of the price paid for supporting Islamic State.

"I committed a crime by coming here," he said. "I guess I need to be punished."
He had a warning for other people, who, like him, may be attracted to extremism.
"Anyone that's still immersed by Islamic State methodology is wrong.
"It's a gang. A lot of people are tricked. Don't fall into the same trick."

In a statement, the Home Office said it did not comment on individual cases but pointed out that TPIMs provide some of the most
restrictive measures available in the democratic world...'

The trending act of bending over for the criminals contines and now, the European community is asked to
smile when they grab their ankles. 

Quote:Berlin: Dealers allowed to sell drugs in dedicated zones of Gorlitzer Park sprayed pink.

Gorlitzer Park - a trendy destination in the German capital - has long had a problem with criminal gangs.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5740]

'A popular park in Berlin has taken the unusual step of introducing dedicated spaces for local drug dealers
to sell their products. Gorlitzer Park - a trendy destination in the German capital with its own sports fields,
a petting zoo and a lake -has long had a problem with criminal gangs and authorities have struggled to cope.

Now, in a bid to help visitors feel less intimidated by their presence, park manager Cengiz Demirci has
introduced special zones specifically for drug dealers to do business. By creating the dedicated areas, outlined
in pink spray paint, Mr Demirci hopes the rest of the park will become free from the trade and ease the concerns
of families.

He told local radio station RBB: "This method has purely practical reasoning behind it. It's not that we're legalising
the selling of drugs. When we create systems, we can solve the problem."

Mr Demirci, who has been the manager for two-and-a-half years, also encouraged authorities to give
the dealers 
work permits, as many are asylum seekers who enter the trade as they wait for claims to
be processed.

He said most of them "would stop what they are doing immediately" if they were allowed to take up a job...'

I'm beyond words!

Quote:'...The introduction of the pink zones has been criticised by police and politicians alike, but Mr Demirci has said he
had to do something to try and help visitors feel more at ease when in the park. It was unclear what drugs were being
sold in the zones, although German media reports said gangs were offering marijuana to people.

Gorlitzer has developed a reputation for its abundance of drug dealers, with numerous reviews on TripAdvisor citing them
as the reason for giving it a poor rating. One review from February reads: "Too many drug dealers. There are much better
places and parks in Berlin. You will not be safe there, period."

Another comment, posted by a woman from Finland, said she and her boyfriend were "immediately harassed
by sketchy 
looking loitering people" upon entering the park. She added: "We took the next exit to get out
of the park as quickly as possible. 
I would not recommend going there alone, in the dark or in a female group."

And a two-star review by someone from Kingston-upon-Thames said the park was home to "a phenomenal array of loitering
drug dealers" who "will offer you marijuana"....?

I wonder what the lady from Finland could possibly mean? Could it be someone who perceives women in a certain way?

Quote:'...Previous pledges by Berlin politicians to adopt a "no tolerance" attitude towards drug dealing in Gorlitzer Park have failed,
but the controversial policy adopted by the manager may hasten attempts to come up with a different solution to the issue.

Benjamin Jendro, of the police trade union GdP, told Bild : "What is needed to ensure that the park is drug and crime free,
is a constant police presence and judicial resolve." Timur Husein, a local member of the Christian Democratic Union party, told
the newspaper: "Our state co-operates with drug dealers. This is capitulation to the criminals."...'

And Mr. Husein is bang-on with his comment. What ever happened to strong leadership in Germany?

Quote:Lyon ‘terror’ explosion injures 13 people including girl, 8, as cops hunt ‘nail bomber’ in French city.

'Anti-terror cops are hunting a male suspect after 13 people were injured when a parcel bomb filled with "nails and bolts"
exploded during rush hour in Lyon today. The man, aged in his 30s, was seen placing a bag outside a bakery in the Victor
Hugo area of the city at 5.30pm local time before riding away on a bicycle, an official said.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5814]

An emergency services spokesman said: "A man in his mid 30s was seen placing a  possible parcel bomb, and a hunt
has been launched to try and find him." Alain Bardelis, of the local police union, said the suspected bomber had his head
covered and was wearing dark glasses, but was caught on CCTV.
He said: "He was wearing a dark top and Bermuda shorts. Municipal cameras would have caught him on his bike."

A witness living in a flat on Victor Hugo said: "We heard a monstrous noise, and our windows came in. We could see that
people were running everywhere down below. I saw people wounded.
"The explosion was from the pavement in front of the bakery. We’ve heard it was a bomb packed with nuts and bolts."

A local woman said the horrific blast happened outside her home where she had been standing ten minutes before.
She tweeted: "I am going to throw up. The explosion in the street, I spent 10 minutes before. It's literally the foot of my house."
The neighbouring streets are filled with soldiers while several fire engines have arrived on site of the explosion which
President Macron branded an "attack".

According to local media, the devastating explosion was caused by a parcel bomb which was filled with nails, bolts and screws.

Kamel Amerouche, the regional authority's communications chief, said the casualties, including an eight-year-old girl, suffered
leg wounds describing the injuries as minor. He said the explosion occurred in or outside a store of the bakery chain Brioche

French leader Emmanuel Macron interrupted a TV interview to say: "There’s been a bomb attack in Lyon, there are injuries."
He later tweeted: “Tonight I think of the wounded of the explosion in Lyon, their families affected by the violence that has fallen
on their loved ones in the street, and all Lyon. We are at your side.”

In January 2015, 12 people were killed when two brainwashed jihadis attacked the Parisian offices of French satirical magazine
Charlie Hebdo. And later that year, in November, a group of terrorists unleashed hell on the capital city murdering 130 innocent
people in a coordinated gun and bomb massacre. Nice in the south of France was also targeted in July 2016 when a crazed
extremist used a truck to kill 86 people who were celebrating Bastille Day.

The attack comes on the eve of European elections in the country, when millions will go to the polls to elect new MEPs.
France has been the victim of some of Europe's worst terror assaults in recent years...'

Quote:Jail for Frenchman who launched 39 migrant dinghies: Boat merchant who sold death-trap boats
so people could make illegal journey to the UK gets 18 months.

'A Frenchman has been jailed for selling dozens of boats to migrants desperate to reach Britain by sailing
across the English Channel. Emmanuel Desreux, 45, sold 39 motorised inflatables to people trying to make
the journey from France to the UK illegally. 

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5829]

He was sentenced to a year and a half behind bars, with another 18 months suspended for abetting illegal
migration between October 2018 and March 2019. More than 30 migrants have been returned to Europe
so far this year after they were caught trying to enter the country by boat.

There has been a huge spike in Iraqi, Iranian and Afghan nationals travelling to the UK in recent months,
prompting border officials on either side of the Channel to step up patrols. 

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5830]

A group of 18 migrants are pictured on a Border Force dinghy after they were caught trying to reach the UK
illegally from France via the Channel this week. Kingsdown Beach near Deal on the Kent coast (pictured)
is where several of the migrants have been found since last year.

Desreux's taxi driver accomplice who organised the transport of the boats and some of the migrants to beaches,
Jean-Claude Demeyer, 54, was sentenced by the same court in Boulogne-sur-mer to one year in prison, with 
another year suspended.

Police launched their investigation into the crossings when they arrested four Iranians and two taxi drivers in
January on a beach near Calais in January. Information from those arrested led them to Desreux and his firm,
Fluvialys, which was located in the town of Deulemont on the border with Belgium. 
The period his company sold the boats corresponds with the noticeable increase in arrivals of illegal migrants.

Migrants have turned to the clandestine sea route after abandoning attempts to clamber aboard trucks crossing
from France to Britain via the Channel Tunnel or on ferries. Authorities in the northern Pas-de-Calais region said
nearly 500 migrants on more than 60 boats managed to reach England's shores between October and March. 

Some of the vessels were stolen fishing boats, while others were purchased by the migrants.
Police found 14,000 euros (£12,308) in cash in Desreux's car when he was arrested.
Neither of the men expressed any remorse for the risks the migrants ran by crossing one of the busiest shipping
corridors in the world, one beset by strong currents and often foul weather.

'Everything depends on the weather,' Desreux said in court. 'When it was bad weather, I told them (the migrants) to
call back later.' On Friday, a group of 18 migrants - including children - were found crammed on a small inflatable
boat off the Kent coast.

Their rigid-hulled inflatable boat (RHIB) was intercepted by a Border Force cutter and the migrants were taken to
shore at Dover. The group, made up of men, women and children, said they were either Iraqi or Iranian.
They have been taken in for interview by immigration officials after being medically assessed.

The migrant crisis skyrocketed at the end of last year, with hundreds risking their lives to make it from France to Britain.  
It sparked Home Secretary Sajid Javid into declaring a 'major incident' at the end of December 2018, and he hauled
in extra Border Force cutters in a bid to stem the crisis.
A Home Office spokesman said: 'Anyone crossing the Channel in a small boat is taking a huge risk with their life and
the lives of their children.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5831]

'Since the Home Secretary declared a major incident in December, two cutters have returned to UK waters from
overseas operations, we have agreed a joint action plan with France and increased activity out of the Joint Coordination
and Information Centre in Calais.

'It is an established principle that those in need of protection should claim asylum in the first safe country they reach and
since January more than 30 people who arrived illegally in the UK in small boats have been returned to Europe.'...'

Quote:Lyon bomb attack: Four arrested by police over blast.

A major manhunt was launched after the device, packed with screws and ball bearings, was detonated
in a busy pedestrian street.

'Four people have been arrested by French police following a bomb explosion in Lyon that left 13 injured.
The suspects held in connection with last week's blast include a 24-year-old Algerian computer science

The arrests came as masked armed officers searched a property in Oullins, a small town outside Lyon.

A manhunt was launched after a device, packed with screws and ball bearings, detonated on a busy

of a person they believe carried out the bombing.

The IT student is understood to have been arrested in Lyon after he got off a bus, with police reportedly
not wanting to detain him at his home in case there were explosives in the building.
His mother and brother were also among those held, according to French media.

Lyon mayor Gerard Collomb, a former interior minister, told TV: "It's a relief for all Lyon inhabitants.

The man was seen arriving on foot, pushing his bike along a pedestrianised street, then leaving a paper bag
close to the bakery. The suspect immediately returned to his bike and left the same way before the bomb went
off a minute later.

It was unclear whether the suspect first arrested Monday was the same person, although Mr Collomb said the
detained student was identified using video surveillance. Investigators recovered screws, ball bearings, batteries
and a remote-controlled trigger device at the scene.

Quote:Enormous cash haul piled up by cocaine gang in sleepy Tunbridge Wells by running 'Deliveroo for drugs'
call centre as they are jailed for total of more than 60 years.

'The enormous cash haul an Albanian drugs gang amassed has been revealed after the nine members were
jailed for a total of more than 60 years. The gang was led by Nelson Aliaj, who was closely assisted by Ervis
Dervishi, Izmir Basha and Alfred Gashi.

The gang had been providing the residents of leafy Tunbridge Wells with a 24/7 supply of cocaine, and had made
£4.2million from a so-called 'Deliveroo for drugs'.

(From left to right) Nelson Aliaj, Rigels Hadushaj, Izmir Basha, Ervis Dervishi, Arline Palushi, Alfred Gashi,
Fatos Metalia, 
Arsid Mataj and Marius Kuci.
(Bottom) An image issued by Kent police shows the name 'Freddy' laid out in £20 notes - which is believed to be
a nickname of one of the gang members.

Based in London the members operated a 24/7 call centre to ship drugs from the capital to the quaint Kent town.
They managed to deliver 1,500 orders in one week alone in July last year, which bagged them at least £60,000. 

Newly revealed pictured show swathes of £50 notes all lined up, cash wrapped in bags and even the name 'Freddy'
made up of £20 notes.

Aliaj, Dervishi, Basha and Gashi would top up their phones with vouchers from Tunbridge wells which had been
purchased by  Marius Kuci, Rigels Hadushaj and Fatos Metalia. Investigators were able to prove that Dervishi had
supplied cocaine in Tunbridge Wells on 14, 15 and 28 June.

He was later arrested on 20 July in possession of 14 deals of cocaine, two mobile phones and more than £600. 
This is while another member, Arsid Mataj had also been found to have supplied cocaine in the area, officers arrested
him on July 23 with four lots of cocaine and more than £1,200.

Just two months later on 22 September Gashi was arrested after being stopped in a car, in possession of two deals of
cocaine, a mobile phone and £600. Just a day later, Hadishaj and Arlind Palushi were found in a car in Tunbridge Wells,
where officers seized 60 deals of cocaine, more tha n£8,000 and pepper spray cannisters.
It was also proven that Kuci supplied cocaine for the crime gang on 11 October and 12 October, and Xhensil Vucaj dealt
cocaine on 19 October.

In October Vucaj was arrested in possession of a mobile phone and more than £1,000. A search warrant was then put out
for Izmir Basha, who was then arrested with the main mobile phone.  Aliaj had been using the address in Deptford and he
was arrested in Hull on 26 November.

On 19 December, Gashi, Metalia and Kuci were found in Southhampton where eight bags of cocaine and more than £8,000
was also seized. In April this year Mataj was also arrested in London.
Investigators analysed text messages from the seized mobile phones and found that those arrested had been part of the
same gang, dealing the Class A drugs in Kent. All of which have been charged with conspiracy to supply cocaine.

Devishi pleaded guilty at Maidstone Crown Court on 22 November 2018. Guilty pleas were entered at Canterbury Crown Court
by Gashi on 25 April 2019, Kuci on 26 April, Aliaj on 8 May and Mataj on 13 May.
Basha, Metalia, Hadushaj, Palushi and Vicaj pleaded not guilty at Canterbury Crown Court and were found guilty after a 27-day

Simon Taylor, prosecuting, told the court: 'The organisers of the network were operating a Deliveroo or Just Eat for drugs and
able to keep the key phone sterile by only using it for receiving and confirming orders. 
He added that the deals were always for half a gram of cocaine, which cost customers £40 each, and were always from the
same town.

Police caught the dealers by posing under cover and pretending to buy from them. Evidence on their mobile phones then
incriminated them further. One member of the gang was filmed throwing money at a singer in a nightclub, while another boasted
about his Range Rover Sport. 

When they were arrested, one of the men had a stash of cocaine with a street value of £2,000 and another had £8,000 cash. 
Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Mark Froome said: ‘This sophisticated drug supply network took steps to avoid arrest
by keeping the main mobile phone is London and providing a second phone for the local dealers Kent.

‘It is estimated the gang’s drug dealing would have made more than £4,000,000 per year from around 50 kilograms of cocaine,
and photographs on their phones showed large quantities of cash in their possession.
‘They were finally brought to justice through a meticulous investigation supported by proactive arrests by patrols.

The sentences imposed should send a strong message to anyone seeking to supply Class A drugs in Kent that they will be
identified, arrested and are likely to spend a significant time in jail.’...'

The father-of-one tried to use a foil-lined bag to interfere with the signals of security tags on the items. 
He was arrested at the store and appeared on court on Monday, where he was detained in a young offenders
institution for 16 weeks. An accomplice managed to avoid arrest, Nottingham Live reported.

Sanjay Jerath, prosecuting, told the court: 'In interview, the defendant said he landed in the country the day before.
He went to an address in Doncaster intending to find some work. 'He was approached by another Romanian man he
doesn't know. There was the suggestion of employment in Nottingham of taking items from a shop and accepts he
was opening bags and taking items. 'He had a foil lined bag and takes full responsibility for his action.'

Tudor, 20, was helped by a Romanian interpreter in court. He admitted theft of accessories worth £508 and having
a foil-lined bag. District Judge Leo Pyle sent him to a young offenders' institution for 16 weeks and ordered him to
pay a £115 government surcharge. He told Tudor: 'The sentence should be a deterrent in your particular case.'

Neil O'Sullivan, mitigating, said Tudor became a father for the first time a fortnight ago.
He had the prospect of work in South Yorkshire and came to stay with a friend in the Doncaster area.
'Simply the promise of money led him to commit these offences. As one can imagine, he had no income whatsoever
as he only landed on Friday.'

The defence lawyer continued: 'He was detained straight away by security staff. All the items were recovered.
'This was an enterprise he entered into with some reluctance, it is fair to say. In some ways, it was borne out of necessity.'
He said Tudor admitted the offences immediately and planned to return to South Yorkshire if released.
Mr O'Sullivan added: 'He tells me the prospect of work is a genuine one and is aimed simply to provide for his family in future.'

In 2013, police chiefs at Europol warned that Romanian pickpocketing gangs were flying into major European cities and
'getting home for tea' on budget flights. Police said that, at that point, they had identified 240 organised crime gangs from
Romania, many of whom had links around Europe.

Quote:Fake psychiatrist who worked within the NHS for more than 22 years without ever qualifying
is arrested for suspected fraud.

'A fake psychiatrist who worked within the NHS for more than 22 years has now been arrested on suspicion of fraud.
Zholia Alemi, 56, had previously claimed to have a degree from the University of Auckland in New Zealand when she
came to work in the UK in 1992.
But she had actually dropped out of the five-year medical training course after failing her first year.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5937]
In October 2018, Alemi (pictured above) was jailed for five years after forging the will of an
84-year-old dementia sufferer.

Following a failure from the General Medical Council (GMC) to vet her documentation properly, Alemi was free to treat
thousands of mental health patients for decades.
Now Cumbria police have revealed that a 56-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of various fraud offences.

While the force has not named Alemi, a local newspaper understands she is the suspect and has been quizzed by detectives.
A Cumbria Police spokesman said: 'Detectives investigating fraud offences have formally arrested a 56-year-old woman today
(June 18).

'The woman, who was arrested on suspicion of fraud by false representation, obtaining a pecuniary advantage and possession
of criminal property has been questioned by officers and will be subject of further inquiries.

'Officers have also conducted searches of addresses in Burnley, Huddersfield and Omagh in Northern Ireland as part of this
investigation. 'The constabulary is continuing to work with a number of agencies, including the NHS Counter Fraud Authority and
General Medical Council, as investigative inquiries continue. 'Further updates on this investigation will be issued in due course.'

In October 2018, Alemi was jailed for five years after forging the will of an 84-year-old dementia sufferer in order to inherit her
£1.3million estate. The new finding have led to the most recent arrest for fraud. Alemi, employed as a NHS dementia expert, first
met her victim, Gilliam Belham in February 2016 in order to assess the wealthy widow's cognitive abilities.
By May 2016 Mrs Belham's will had been changed, appointing Alemi as the executor and the principal beneficiary of her estate.

The offences came to light after Alemi was suspected of stealing watches from the widow's home in Cockermouth, Cumbria.
When police searched Alemi's house, they found financial documents belonging to Mrs Belham plus several versions of the
redrafted will.

The subsequent revelations that Alemi was not properly qualified triggered national checks by health chiefs of more than 3,000
other doctors who came to the UK from Commonwealth countries. Alemi came to the UK under a scheme that had relaxed the
checking regime for medics from Commonwealth countries.

Earlier this month, the organisation confirmed no other fake doctors had been found.
A spokeswoman said he GMC, which spent almost £30,000 on those checks, is now considering whether it needs to extend the
exercise to doctors from other countries.

Commenting at the time the story was first published, GMC chief executive Charlie Massey said: 'Our processes are far stronger
now, with rigorous testing in place to ensure that those joining the [medical] register are fit to work in the UK.
It is clear that in this case the steps taken in the early 1990s were inadequte and we apologise for any risk arising to patients
as a result.'...'
