State of the World Round Up

I remain very preoccupied with a number of real life things and events.

So, in lieu of long, deep thoughts, here's a snapshot of where things are at in the world.

A Swedish journalist, in conversation with the Israeli ambassador, asked if Jews were not responsible for antisemitism. A full apology was issued, but the total reveal is irreversible.  We cannot unlearn the honesty, and the wish to blame the Jews for antisemitism.

Basam Tawil on the real threats to Europe: "The late Libyan leader, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, predicted that Islam would conquer Europe without even firing a shot."

Child "marriage" (why is it called that anyway, isn't it just child abuse) authorized by Swedish tax authorities.

Copenhagen attacks 'renew integration debate'-how's that for a euphemism?

Swedish police guarding synagogues directed to carry automatic weapons.

The ISIS executioner of Christians may be "American". 

State Department royally screws up Yemeni embassy evacuation. 

Obama figures out how to fight 'extremism'.

Meanwhile in D.C antisemitic, pro-ISIS graffiti proliferates around town. 

Why? Perhaps because antisemitism is now 'fashionable" in America. 

Lastly, I find myself in the awkward position of agreeing with the behaviour of the Iranian nuclear negotiator.
