Iran’s state media called for the United States to be ousted from the World Cup after the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) altered the country’s flag on its social media platforms ahead of their Nov. 29 match, removing the Islamic emblem in support for protesters in Iran Sunday.
“By posting a distorted image of the flag of the Islamic Republic of #Iran on its official account, the #US football team breached the @FIFAcom charter, for which a 10-game suspension is the appropriate penalty. Team #USA should be kicked out of the #WorldCup2022, Iran’s state media Tasnim news tweeted.
The country’s soccer federation stated that by removing the “symbol of Allah” from the Iranian flag, the United States offended “the dignity” of Iran, according to The Guardian.
Dem Rep. Jim Clyburn Says He’s Running For House Democrat Leadership Because It’s In The Bible, Or Something…
The Taliban fundamentalist movement has responded to UN criticism of the whipping punishments they are imposing on the Afghan population; allegations it has deplored as an “insult to Islam” and to the laws underpinning their use of flogging.
The spokeswoman of the United Nations Office for Human Rights, Ravina Shamdasani, declared herself last Friday “dismayed” by the use of whipping as a public punishment with cases such as the one that occurred last Wednesday in the province of Logar, where 14 people were victims of this “aberrant” punishment.
In response, the usual Taliban spokesman and deputy information minister, Zabiullah Mujahid, considered these statements as an “insult to Islam and a violation of international principles”.
“Countries and organizations should not allow self-interested individuals to make irresponsible and provocative remarks about Islam and its rules in their name,” he said on his Twitter account.
It’s almost like he’s covering for the Chinese.
Leftist Actress Alyssa Milano Says She’s Trading Her Tesla For a Volkswagen Because of White Supremacy…
Apparently nobody told her Volkswagen was founded by the Nazis.
Via Daily Wire:
Leftist actress Alyssa Milano was mocked over the weekend for revealing that she gave up her Tesla because of “white supremacy” and instead purchased an electric Volkswagen, a car company that was founded by the Nazis.
“I gave back my Tesla. I bought the VW ev. I love it,” Milano tweeted. “I’m not sure how advertisers can buy space on Twitter. Publicly traded company’s products being pushed in alignment with hate and white supremacy doesn’t seem to be a winning business model.”
Volkswagen was created in 1937 when the German government, under control of the Nazi Party, formed the state-owned company, History reports. The company was operated by the Nazi organization German Labor Front.
An Iranian propaganda video in which dozens of children sing a song that references an apocalyptic myth about massacring Jews was filmed at a school just 15 minutes’ walk from the New London synagogue in St John’s Wood, a JC investigation has revealed.
In the video, shot earlier this year in the playground of the Islamic Republic of Iran School (IRIS) near Queen’s Park station, the children sing about joining 313 mythical warriors in a conflict against the infidels, when (according to the present Iranian regime) Israel will be obliterated and Jews killed.
Some scenes were also shot at the nearby Islamic Centre of England (ICE), which is controlled by the Iranian regime and linked to the school. ICE is currently the subject of a statutory inquiry by the Charity Commission, as the JC disclosed last week.

One in five Americans doubt that they’ll have enough money to cover the costs of the usual Thanksgiving meal this year, according to the study by Personal Capital.
The survey found that young people with limited incomes may be celebrating a “friendsgiving” this Thanksgiving — featuring pizza, not turkey, as a top choice.

San Francisco authorities proposed a new “dystopian” policy heading for approval next week that would license department robots to kill suspects who threaten the lives of citizens and police officers in the crime-ridden city.
San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) drafted the blueprint for officers to use its military-style weapons, which includes 17 remote-controlled robots available in its inventory that are typically used for defusing bombs or surveilling areas too difficult for authorities to access.
“Robots will only be used as a deadly force option when risk of loss of life to members of the public or officers is imminent and outweighs any other force option available to SFPD,” the policy reads.

President Joe Biden’s approval rating has been wavering in the high 30s and low 40s, with even Democrats saying they weren’t sure they’d support him again should he choose to run in 2024.
But all that changed after Democrats performed far better than expected in the midterm elections. While they lost the House, there was no Red Wave. And Democrats held onto control of the Senate, where some pollsters were predicting they could have lost up to seven seats.
Now, almost three in four Democrats (71%) say Biden could win if he runs for another White House term in 2024, according to a USA Today-Ipsos poll. That’s an 11-point jump from August.
Half of the Democratic voters surveyed in the latest poll believe Biden “should be the nominee and deserves reelection.” That’s up six points from August.
