Stemming from the days of bubonic plague in Medieval Europe, quarantines were originally used to prevent potentially plague-infested ships from disembarking at a port city. Jessica Oreck and Rachael Teel explain how the length of the wait, often 40 days, came to be associated with the word we use today.
“Europe is committing suicide. Or at least its leaders have decided to commit suicide. Whether the European people choose to go along with this is, naturally, another matter.”
“Europe today has little desire to reproduce itself, fight for itself, or even take its own side in an argument. By the end of the lifespans of most people currently alive in Europe, Europe will not be Europe and the peoples of Europe will have lost the only place in the world we had to call home.”
I’m not terribly blown away by the revelation that the IslamoNazis in Iran have been lying to the world about their nuclear program. The mullahs in Iran are following the standard Islamic playbook of Taqiyya, which holds that lying to infidels in the name of Islam is perfectly okay.
The only people who ever believed the Iranian lies are the cynical Europeans who seek economic ties with the mullahs, and the deeply naive Barack Obama and his supporters. It should be noted that both the Europeans and the Obama bros have no love for the Jewish state.
We should also keep in mind that in 2015 John Kerry stated that the U.S. had “absolute knowledge” about the regime’s past nuclear efforts. Kerry’s statement unmasks the limits of American intelligence, if not the limits of Kerry’s intelligence.
In contrast, Israel has the best intelligence—human and electronic—in the Middle East. Think of it, Israel and her assets lifted half a ton of Iranian documents out of an Iranian warehouse and then somehow transported this valuable trove back to Israel. We can assume that Mossad then reeled in all their assets, burned them, for fear of exposing them to arrest, torture, and eventually public hanging.
Is the European Union good for Europe? Or would Europeans be better off without it? Nigel Farage, a leader of the United Kingdom’s Brexit movement, shares his view.

One of the most assiduously cultivated myths of modern times is that antisemitism is a pathology of the political right. The truth is that today, while antisemitism certainly persists in right-wing circles, the main driver of contemporary Jew-hatred – centred upon the demonised figure of the collective Jew in the state of Israel – is the left, acting in concert with the Muslim and Arab world.
A TV documentary commissioned by the Franco-German culture channel ARTE, with the support of one of Europe’s biggest medias companies, the Westdeutsche Rundfunk (WDR) chronicles the acceptance of antisemitism by the mainstream mass media, politicians, left wingers, Muslim “Palestine” activists, rappers and church organisations. Now the Gatestone Institute reports that the German and French TV networks have tried to bury it and subjected its creators to a smear and hate campaign.
