No, this is not vandalism… it’s celebrating diversity!

Via WRAL:

A Civil War memorial statue at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was found vandalized Sunday morning with the words “black lives matter.”

The statue, known as Silent Sam, was erected in 1913 as a monument to 321 alumni who died in the Civil War and students who joined the Confederate Army, according to the university’s website.

Vandals used black spray paint to deface the statue, which also had the words “KKK” and “murderer” written on it. No suspects or arrests have been made.

Rick White, the school’s associate vice chancellor of Communications and Public Affairs, released the following statement Sunday:

“We understand that the issue of race and place is both emotional and, for many, painful. Carolina is working hard to ensure we have a thoughtful, respectful and inclusive dialogue on the issue,” he said. “The extensive discussions with the Carolina community this past year by the Board of Trustees and University leadership, and the work we will be doing to contextualize the history of our campus is a big part of advancing those conversations. We welcome all points of view, but damaging or defacing statues is not the way to go about it.”

The graffiti sparked debate among some in the campus community about whether the statue should be removed.

Newly minted host of “State of the Union” Jake Tapper blasted liberal critics on Twitter today who accused the Sunday morning show of a lack of racial diversity.

Things got off to a roiling start when Think Progress’ Judd Legum tweeted: “Featured guests on big 5 Sunday shows today (ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, CNN): 11 Men 1 Woman.”

Tapper responded: “We had two presidential candidates on. The woman running for the Democratic nomination hasn’t sat down to do one Sunday show yet.”

Via The Hill:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is “worried” about Bernie Sanders, who a top Clinton aide described as a “serious force” in the 20116 battle.

“We are worried about him, sure. He will be a serious force for the campaign and I don’t think that will diminish,” Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri said Monday in an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“It’s to be expected that Sanders would do well in a Democratic primary and he’s going to do well in Iowa in the Democratic caucus.”
Sanders, an Independent senator from Vermont, has emerged as Clinton’s main foil in the Democratic primary.

Palestinian Man Celebrates Diversity By Painting LGBT Rainbow Flag On West Bank Security Wall, Flag Whitewashed By Angry Mob “Just A Few Hours Later” …

Via Breitbart:

A Palestinian artist who painted an LGBT rainbow on a security wall in the West Bank has angered many within the area, where homosexuality is illegal.

Khaled Jarrar– who, after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage is now legal in all 50 states, drew the LGBT rainbow on the wall to draw attention to the Israeli “occupation”– was disappointed that his own people decided to abruptly paint over his art on a security barrier.

The security walls, which divide the West Bank and Israeli territory, were erected following the first and second intifada – when Palestinian terrorists launched wide-scale attacks against Israel’s Jewish population.

The painting “ignited angry responses and [Palestinian] activists whitewashed the flag on Monday night, just a few hours after it was painted,” the Associated Press reports.

Jarrar told the AP that the whitewashing “reflects the absence of tolerance and freedoms in the Palestinian society.”

“People don’t accept different thinking in our society,” he added.

Muhammad al-Amleh, a lawyer, disagreed that Jarrar should have the right to free speech, telling the AP, “It would be shameful to have the flag of gays in our refugee camp.”

Another man named Muhammad, who participated in erasing the painting, said, “We cannot promote gay rights” in the Palestinian-controlled West Bank.

WH Officials Say Obama “Obsessed” With Cutting Nuke Deal With Iran, Wants It To Be The “Centerpiece Of His Legacy”…

Via London Times:

BARACK OBAMA will “go for broke” to secure a historic nuclear deal with Iran this week, despite fears that the resultant lifting of sanctions on Tehran could lead to a surge in its support for terrorism throughout the Middle East.

Both present and former American officials describe Obama as being obsessed with carving his mark on history by restoring diplomatic relations with Iran after decades of animosity and possibly even visiting Tehran next year.

“Obama wants this as the centrepiece of his legacy, and he believes a peaceful Iran could be a bulwark against Isis in the Middle East and the key to peace there,” said an American diplomat involved in the negotiations, which face a deadline for agreement on Tuesday.

And no, this has nothing to do with Islam.

Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) – Attackers on a motorbike threw acid in the faces of three teenage girls on their way to school in Afghanistan’s western Herat province on Saturday, an official told CNN.

The girls, age 16 to 18, are students at one of the biggest girls’ schools in Herat city, the provincial capital, said Aziz-ul-Rahman Sarwary, head of the education department for the province.

All three girls were admitted to Noor hospital in Herat city before their parents took them elsewhere, said hospital head Jamal Abdul Naser Akhundzada.

Two of the girls were in critical condition after the acid was thrown in their faces, he said.

Akhundzada quoted the girls as saying that their assailants were two men on a motorbike.

“This is the punishment for going to school,” the men told the girls after pouring the acid on them, according to Akhundzada.

Egyptian Justice Minister Condemns Jihadi Terrorists By Comparing Them To Jews…

Some things never change.

Via Algemeiner:

Egyptian Justice Minister Ahmed el-Zend invoked antisemitic tropes in cursing the terrorists behind a bomb blast in Cairo that killed state prosecutor Hisham Barakat earlier this week.

“God Almighty will treat [the perpetrators] as he treats the Jews; they will wander through the land, a day will come where no country will accept them and they will not find a home, since there are no homelands for vileness and wickedness,” said Zend on Lebanese Sada el-Balad TV, according to Egyptian daily Al-Masry Al-Youm.

In response, Jewish rights group the Simon Wiesenthal Center called on Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to demand an apology from the justice minister, who was actually appointed in May this year after his predecessor was forced to resign over class-prejudicial comments.

Bombs Kill 44 More In Nigeria, Including At Mosque Where Cleric Preached Peaceful Coexistence With Other Religions

No peaceful coexistence possible to Boko Haram.

JOS, Nigeria – Two bombs blamed on the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram exploded at a crowded mosque and an elite Muslim restaurant in Nigeria’s central city of Jos, killing 44 people, officials said Monday.

Sixty-seven other people were wounded in the attacks Sunday night and were being treated at hospitals, said National Emergency Management Agency coordinator Abdussalam Mohammed.

The explosion at the Yantaya Mosque came as leading cleric Sani Yahaya of the Jama’atu Izalatul Bidia organization, which preaches peaceful co-existence of all religions, was addressing a crowd during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, according to survivors who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.

Final Push For Iran Deal As Netanyahu Blasts Western Collapse

First president to give an enemy nukes.

Via Breitbart:

Negotiators reconvened Sunday in Vienna in a final push toward a nuclear deal with Iran before a Tuesday deadline–the latest in a series of extensions aimed at keeping Iran at the negotiating table. As foreign ministers from the P5+1–the U.S., United Kingdom, France, Russia, China and Germany–joined their Iranian counterparts, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that Western powers had “collapsed” to nearly every single Iranian demand so far in the nuclear talks.

“[W]hat’s coming out of the nuclear talks in Vienna is not a breakthrough, it’s a breakdown,” Netanyahu said. He warned that the Western powers were about to sign a deal that put Iran on track to becoming a nuclear power, and that handed the regime billions of dollars to fund its terror operations around the globe, as well as its brutal war to defend the Assad regime in Syria. The emerging deal was worse than the North Korean agreement negotiated in the 1990s, Netanyahu concluded.

Minnesota Firefighter Suspended for Flying Confederate Flag From Fire Truck At Parade …

A volunteer firefighter is under scrutiny after a photo of his firetruck flying a Confederate flag at a parade in Albert Lea, Minn. went viral. He has also been suspended.

Brian Nielson, 43, flew both the Confederate and American flags on the back of the Heartland Fire Department truck in the Third of July Parade. Nielson said he’s not for slavery, but did it because he was fed up with political correctness.

“It was my decision and I didn’t think it was going to be a big deal, but boy was I wrong,” Nielsen told The Associated Press.

Hartland Fire Chief Trent Wangen suspended him on Sunday pending an investigation. Nielsen said he thinks he’ll be “more than likely” asked to step down.

This comes in the heat of a nationwide debate regarding the appropriateness of displaying the Confederate flag after nine people were killed at a historically black church in South Carolina. The man who confessed to the killings posted photographs of himself on social media with the flag.

But Nielsen, who is white, told the Associated Press that he’s not racist.

“I don’t see race,” he said. “Black and white are the same to me. My belief is that `politically correct’ is going too far.”

Jews Are Fleeing Russia Because Of Putin

And not just Jews. Opposition tends to get gunned down or poisoned…

Via RFERL:

Just a year ago, Russian journalist Vladimir Yakovlev was one of Moscow’s most influential media figures.

Today, he lives a quiet life in Tel Aviv and has swapped his Russian passport for an Israeli one.

Yakovlev, the founder of the respected Kommersant publishing house and the Snob magazine, belongs to a new wave of disillusioned Russian Jews deserting their country for the relative stability of Israel.

“The big problem with Russia, and the main reason why I left, is the fact that our value system was destroyed,” he says. “Life in Russia has turned into Russian roulette. Every morning you turn the roulette wheel, you never know what is going to happen to you.”

Spooked by Russia’s actions in Ukraine and by the increasingly stringent punishments for anyone deemed critical of the Kremlin, Russians of Jewish descent have been fleeing in droves over the past 18 months.

Woman Obama Calls “Granny” To Cook A Traditional Kenyan Dinner During His Visit…

Via The Daily Mail

President Barack Obama’s Kenyan grandmother, known as Mama Sarah, vowed Friday to cook a traditional meal for her grandson when he visits the East African nation, the birthplace of his father, later this month.

‘With regards to what food I will prepare for Barack on his visit, I will prepare all the traditional food available,’ she said, speaking her Luo language through a translator on a visit to Nairobi.

She tempted him with the offer of dishes including fish, chicken and maize porridge.

‘It does not matter whether Barack is a senator or a president,’ she added. ‘He will have what I have prepared for him.’

Mama Sarah was the third wife of US president’s paternal grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama, and lives in the small village of Kogelo in western Kenya which is home to a number of the president’s relatives.

She said she had asked him to travel to Kogelo ‘to pay respect to his father’s grave’, but it was not clear if Obama was scheduled to travel outside the capital Nairobi.

Obama’s late father was born in Kogelo and grew up there before travelling abroad to study, where he met Obama’s American mother in Hawaii.

Although Mama Sarah is not a blood relative, Obama calls her ‘granny’ and has visited her in the past.

Girl Suicide Bomber Detonates In Christian Church In Nigeria, 200 Killed By Boko Haram In Last Few Days

POTISKUM, Nigeria (AP) — A woman suicide bomber blew up in the midst of a crowded evangelical Christian church service in northeast Nigeria on Sunday and killed at least five people, witnesses said.

It is the latest bombing in a string of attacks blamed on Islamic extremist group Boko Haram that’s killed some 200 people in the past week.

Nearly 100 men and boys praying in mosques were gunned down on Wednesday, and a local official said Sunday that 21 more bodies have been recovered from burnt-out houses since then.

On Friday, the military said six women suicide bombers caused explosions that killed scores of people including a soldier at Zabamari Muna village outside Maiduguri, the biggest city in northeast Nigeria and the birthplace of Boko Haram.

Police Sunday rushed to the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Potiskum, the largest city in northeastern Yobe state. Wailing women and stunned men wandered around the wreckage of smashed bricks and twisted zinc sheets blown off the church roof. One congregant said the blast came from a woman in the congregation. She was too scared to give her name.
