TEXAS: ‘ DPS INTENDS TO FINGER PRINT EVERYONE OF DRIVING AGE ‘


#AceNewsServices – TEXAS – October 30 – The Texas Department of Public Safety might as well be called the Texas Department of Public Invasiveness. 

They have launched a plan to fingerprint every single person of driving age in the state, after which they will add the person’s prints to the criminal database.

Is it just me or is that a rather Dystopian plan?
Jon Cassidy of Watchdog.org writes:

The credit for breaking the news on those two items goes to consumer affairs columnist Dave Lieber of the Dallas Morning News, whose long-running “Watchdog” column often shows up in my Google Alerts, for obvious reasons.

As an old-school columnist, Lieber tends to keep his opinions subdued, and he does not generally call people dishonest.

But I have no problem with doing that, so I’d like to point out that the DPS spokesman he quotes at length is less than straightforward about his department’s legal authority.

UNICEF: ‘ NUMBER OF CHILDREN IN POVERTY RISES BY 2.6 MILLION SINCE 2008 ‘


#AceNewsServices – UNICEF – October 30 – The number of children in poverty in developed countries has increased by 2.6 million since 2008, according to a report published Tuesday by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

The report, titled Children of the Recession, states that there are 76.5 million children in poverty in the 41 countries surveyed by UNICEF.

The study documents: the devastating impact that the 2008 financial crash and subsequent austerity measures have had on the well-being of children, and makes clear that despite official proclamations of economic recovery, the most vulnerable sections of society are far worse off now than they were before the crash.

Young people have been made to bear a disproportionate burden of the economic crisis, with poverty rates increasing more rapidly for young people than for other age groups.

JERUSALEM: ‘ AL-AQSA MOSQUE CLOSED TO ALL WORSHIPPERS ABBAS CALLS IT ACT OF WAR ‘


#AceNewsServices – JERUSALEM – October 30 – The Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem has been closed to all worshippers for the first time since 1967. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas called the closure a ‘declaration of war.’

Both Jewish and Muslim worshipers will be prohibited from visiting the site “until further notice,” Israel’s public security minister said.

Palestinian authorities quickly responded to the move, saying it was a “dangerous and blatant challenge” that would lead to more tension and instability in an already volatile situation.

“This dangerous Israeli escalation is a declaration of war on the Palestinian people and its sacred places and on the Arab and Islamic nation,” Abbas’ spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina quoted him as saying.

“We hold the Israeli government responsible for this dangerous escalation in Jerusalem that has reached its peak through the closure of the Al-Aqsa mosque this morning,” he told AFP.

He added that the state of Palestinian would employ all legal means to “hold Israel accountable” and put an end to “these ongoing attacks.”

Omar Al-Kiswani, director of Al-Aqsa Mosque, told RT the decision to close the site was very dangerous and irrational, saying it would lead to destabilization and a strengthening of tensions not only in Jerusalem, but in the entire region. He said the situation in Jerusalem has been turbulent as a result of the closure.

“We lay responsibility for this decision on the Israeli government and police,” Al-Kiswani said.

Fox News reported : The closure of Al-Aqsa, Islam’s third holiest site, followed the shooting of a right-wing Jewish activist, Yehuda Glick, on Wednesday. Glick had advocated for greater Jewish access to the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism where Al-Aqsa sits, along with the much revered Dome of the Rock.

The Americna-born Glick was shot three times by an assailant who fled the scene on the motorcycle.

On Thursday Israeli police shot dead Mutaz Hijazi in East Jerusalem, AFP reported whom they claim was responsible for the attack on Glick. Israeli counter-terrorism officers said they came under fire after surrounding a residence in the Abu Tor neighborhood. Hijazi reportedly died in the subsequent shootout. Israeli security services later said that Hijazi had spent 11 years in an Israeli prison before being released in 2012.

The shooting coincided with renewed clashes between Palestinians and Jewish security forces.

On Tuesday, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat had told municipal authorities to crack down on residents in East Jerusalem over a range of offenses in order to compel them to pressure Palestinian youth who have been clashing with police on a near daily basis.

Earlier this month, Abbas warned his government would appeal to international law to deal with alleged Israeli “aggression” against Al-Aqsa.

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas warned that his government will seek international “legal measures” to deal with Israeli “aggression” against Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa mosque.

Abbas accused Israeli settlers of attempting to “attack the mosque” and called for Jews to be banned from the site.

Abbas’ statements mirrored comments made by Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal, who earlier urged Muslims to “defend” the holy mosque after Israeli forces restricted entrance for Palestinians. Meshaal further accused Israel of trying to seize the site.

Israeli authorities have said that all are free to worship at the the compound.

Two weeks prior, clashes erupted between Palestinians and police after Israeli authorities placed restrictions on Al-Aqsa, only allowing Palestinians over the age of 50 to enter the site. Nearly 400 people gathered at the entrance to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound to protest the restrictions, with some in attendance lobbing stones at police. Police responded by firing stun grenades. Three injuries and several arrests resulted from the disturbances.

A police spokesperson at the time said police would show “zero tolerance” to prevent further clashes in the area.

‘ THOUSANDS OF SOCCER HOOLIGANS PROTEST AGAINST ISLAM ‘


Freedom Outpost: Europe is known for its soccer fan clubs who are widely called “soccer hooligans.” These call themselves the GnuHonnters, a take on the English term “new hunters.” Their motto is: “Comrades in spirit. Many colors, but one entity.” It refers to the fact that they support different soccer clubs.

Now they are united under the banner “hooligans against [Islamic] Salafists” (HoGeSa) and they are fed up with the Muslim supremacy in Europe so on Sunday they decided to unite forces and demonstrate in Cologne Germany.

Clashes soon erupted between police forces and HoGeSa protesters were at least 13 officers were injured, the German news agency DPA reported.

Patricia Ward, 66, was a much-loved teacher of language arts for 28 years at Farmingdale State College, a colleague told Mail-Online today.

Vice President for Institutional Advancement, Patrick Calabria, said: ‘Patricia Ward was a member of the campus for 28 years. She was well-known, well-liked, and well-respected. The campus is a very sad place today.’

She was found by residents, decapitated in front of her apartment building in Farmingdale, New York on Tuesday night.

Neighbours initially thought the body was part of a Halloween prank. The suspect, believed to be the victim’s son, kicked her head 20 feet and then jumped in front of an oncoming Long Island Rail Road train minutes later.

Beheading victim Patricia Ward taught language arts for 28 years at Farmingdale State College in New York.

The 35-year-old suspect jumped in front of the train a mile away and died around 8.15pm, half an hour later.

He was identified as Derek Ward by the Daily News. The 35-year-old had a criminal history and psychiatric problems spanning a decade. 

He was found to be carrying a pistol and 100 valiums when he died. 

Ms Ward was believed to have suffered multiple stab wounds and broken ribs were among her injuries before she died.

She was an assistant professor of language arts at the Long Island Educational Opportunity Center on campus where she worked with high school students who need help to become prepared for college, Mr Calabria added.

Neighbours told the Post that they initially believed the headless corpse, dressed only in a bra and pants, was a Halloween joke – only to lift the body and find out it was real.

NEW YORK: ‘ UN HUMAN RIGHTS RAPPORTEUR CALLS TO REFER NORTH KOREA TO ICC ‘


#AceNewsServices – NEW YORK – October 29 – The U.N. special rapporteur on North Korea’s human rights situation called Tuesday for referring the communist nation to the International Criminal Court (ICC) to show that the international community takes the issue seriously.

“This would send an unequivocal signal that the international community is determined to take the follow-up to the work the Commission of Inquiry on the DPRK (North Korea) to a new level,” Marzuki Darusman, the special U.N. investigator, said during a presentation of his latest report to the U.N.

He also urged the U.N. General Assembly to submit a U.N. Commission of Inquiry report to the U.N. Security Council for further action. That report, issued early this year, concluded that the ICC should handle human rights abuses in the North as “crimes against humanity.” 
   Darusman’s presentation came a day after he held the first-ever meeting with North Korean officials on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly. The two sides discussed the possibility of the U.N. investigator visiting the North.

The meeting came as North Korean diplomats have been struggling to spare the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un, from a U.N. General Assembly resolution, led by the European Union, which calls for referring North Korean leaders responsible for violations to the ICC.
