More than 40 foreign terrorists have used human rights laws to remain in the UK, according to an unpublished report delayed by the Home Office.

The study highlights the near insurmountable problem for the Government in deporting dangerous jihadists and follows a series of Islamic State-inspired attacks in the UK.

In the court cases, lawyers – typically funded through legal aid – have successfully prevented foreign-born terror suspects from being sent back to their home countries.

At a time when Britain’s security services are fully stretched, the additional burden of monitoring so many foreign terrorist inevitably adds to the strain.

Details are contained in a report ordered by Theresa May when Home Secretary into a scheme called Deportation with Assurances (DWA).

Sorry for the inconvenience: Newfoundland grapples with ferry issues

by The Canadian Press

ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — Transportation officials are apologizing for delays as they grapple with repairs and required maintenance for Newfoundland and Labrador’s ferry fleet.

A second vessel, the MV Norcon Galatea, will be added to the Fogo and Change Islands run on Tuesday.

It’s one of the province’s tourism hot spots, including the luxury Fogo Island Inn.

The Galatea will join the MV Legionnaire as it stands in for the MV Veteran, which is out until mid-July for repairs to ice damage on its hull.

It’s the latest issue to sideline the Veteran after various mechanical problems last year.

Once the Veteran is back in service, the Legionnaire will switch to the Bell Island run.

UN and EU praise Iran over nuclear deal but US is critical

by The Associated Press

The United Nations and the European Union are praising Iran for implementing the landmark nuclear deal with six major powers, but U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley is accusing Tehran of “destructive and destabilizing” actions from ballistic missile launches to arms smuggling.

The speeches at a Security Council meeting Thursday on implementation of the U.N. resolution endorsing the July 2015 nuclear agreement showed the deep division over Iran between the five major powers and the Trump administration.

While Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany welcomed the Iranian government’s adherence to the agreement reining in its nuclear program, Haley said only that the U.S. would adhere to the deal while conducting a comprehensive review of it.

Instead, she focused on the 2015 resolution, saying the Security Council has ignored repeated Iranian violations.

A call to Jews around the world (and friends of Jews): the time for unity is now

Inspiration from Zion: This is a Love Story

We are a tiny tribe.
Threatened from all corners of the earth, from near and from far.
We are Jews.

So few. So threatened.
So brilliant and yet so very stupid.

Our enemies laugh while, instead of uniting against them, we fight amongst ourselves.

I follow the religion more correctly than you!
I am more modest than you!
I am more studious than you!
I am more Zionist than you!
My physical strength protects you!
My spiritual strength protects you!

It goes on and on…

Our friends shake their heads in wonder.
And our enemies laugh.

The Jew says: “I am modern! I belong to the world! I am first German/American/Gay and Jewish second.”

The enemy responds: “You don’t belong to the world, you belong to Israel and we feel Israel is vile. You can march with us, but only if you utterly reject your Jewishness.”

I have heard Olim…

AJC presse le Comité du Patrimoine Mondial à rejeter la résolution sur Hebron.

AJC Paris

28 juin 2017, New-York. AJC appelle les états membres du Comité du Patrimoine Mondial à rejeter la proposition visant à inscrire la vieille ville d’Hebron et le Caveau des Patriarches sur le territoire de “l’Etat de Palestine” et de les ajouter à la Liste du Patrimoine Mondial en Péril. Le Comité se réunira la semaine prochaine à Cracovie en Pologne pour délibérer.

“Réécrire l’histoire et nier le lien du peuple juif aux sites sacrés n’est pas la solution pour faire avancer la paix et la coexistence, pourtant les palestiniens, une fois de plus, attisent les flammes du conflit et de la méfiance”, a déclaré le Directeur Général d’AJC, David Harris. “Le Caveau des Patriarches, où se trouve la tombe d’Abraham, est sacré et Israel a toujours cherché à assurer sa sécurité et son accessibilité aux juifs comme aux musulmans.”
