    It's going on behind the scenes, mainly because there's an informal alliance being formed between Israel and Saudi Arabia that needs to be kept on the downlow since the Sauds can't be visibly seen allying themselves with Jews. But it's unlikely to really yield anything-- the status quo profits Abbas and Palestinian leadership way too much in the form of corruption that is rewarded with Western dollars. As for the Israelis, the last few years of escalating global terrorism has vindicated their position and strategy in their eyes, while decapitating whatever was remaining of the Left in Israel. Though much like the States, the media and academia is controlled by the Left, Israelis have wholly swung to the right in the last few years-- I think less than 8% of Israelis now consider themselves "Leftists" now, and Haaretz has less than a 3% readership and is being kept on life support purely on European cash injections. With what's been going on in the world just the last few years, Israelis are increasingly convinced that land will never buy them peace, and that when it comes to terrorism the world clearly applies a double standard. Basically, Abbas will never agree to anything because he's too fucking rich. Hamas will never agree to anything because they get to rule like thugs while enriching themselves, and the Israeli government is unlikely to cede any further land because the voting support just isn't there. Israelis basically point to Europe now and say "fuck that".

    Saudis told Abbas to accept Trump peace plan or resign — report

    What constitutes using sectarian language? Did they really just criminalize hurting someones feelings because that concept is so nebulous and hard to define that pretty much anything could qualify!

    Asian country training/PR drills drive me crazy. (Find legit training or real circumstance videos and it's a cluster fuck.)

    Everyone does it but they take the choreography to extremes

    Rise up? Heads didn't roll in Rotherham and you think that population would even react to a poster?

    BTP first to win anti-sectarianism award

    Nil by Mouth is "the country’s leading anti-bigotry charity". The first to be given an award for upholding NBM's lovely values are the British Transport Police!

    Minister Roseanna Cunningham could not have been happier to present the certificate in 2012, ensuring that every Scottish officer would attend

    "extensive sectarian awareness workshops including advice on songs, words and phrases which may breach legislation"

    songs, words and phrases which may breach legislation

    Cunningham has since been promoted to Cabinet Secretary for Fair Work, Skills and Training.

    Perhaps somewhere below London a burned dude in a mask sharpening a knife or two.

    It's time to start air-dropping DVDs of 1984 on London. All the versions. Smuggle them in North Korea style, maybe hide them in the cantaloupes or something. We must rescue our colonial father from the belly of the dragon! It's time for a British Trump to rise. Someone who give no fucks about this PC Authoritarian brain-rot, and can stand up to Islam.
