UN claims Children of ISIS fighters must be repatriated

 

What to do with 68,000 people in Syrian camps including their children? Many of them families of ISIS fighters. Trump had raised the issue some time ago, with no answer, asking countries to take their prisoners who are being held in Syria. It came to a head when the skirmish with Turkey left some camps under questionable control by the Kurds. One can only imagine the state of mind of children held in these conditions with parents who were/are ISIS fighters.

Note from picture: We are the first reporters inside the al-Hol Camp since Turkish military operations began in northeastern Syria last week. Officials say since the conflict began, the camp, which houses 71,000 people, has become “out of control.” Camp officials say in the past week there have been attacks, escape attempts and open calls for a violent uprising in al-Hol Camp in Syria, Oct. 16, 2019.

GENEVA, Switzerland (AFP) — United Nations investigators on Thursday called for thousands of children of jihadists who fought for the Islamic State group to be repatriated from Syria.

The UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria said in a report that the children were in a “particularly precarious” situation since they often lacked official papers.

“This, in turn, jeopardizes their rights to a nationality, hinders family reunification processes and puts them at a higher risk of exploitation and abuse,” the report said.

The UN says around 28,000 children of foreign fighters are living in Syrian camps — 20,000 of them from Iraq.

After the collapse of the self-proclaimed caliphate of ISIS last year, foreign fighters from nearly 50 countries were detained in Syria and Iraq.

Many of their relatives are held in the overcrowded Al-Hol camp in northeastern Syria, home to around 68,000 and where more than 500 people — mostly children — died in 2019.

Italy Grows a Pair – tells U.N. Migrant Compact to take a hike

 

 

Just In:  Italy Grows a Pair

by Mustang

(Rejects Global Fascism re: Immigration Policy)

The United Nations Global Compact for Migration met at a conference in Marrakech, Morocco to adopt the agreement that intends to establish global migration as a human right.  That’s not all: it also aimed to make any criticism of migration a criminal violation through a so-called hate crimes legislation.  In selling this bill of goods, the United Nations claims the following:

“Today, there are over 250 million migrants around the world living outside their country of birth.  This figure is expected to grow for a number of reasons, including population growth, increasing connectivity, trade, rising inequality, demographic imbalances, and climate change.  Migration provides immense opportunity and benefits—for the migrants, host communities, and communities of origin.  However, when poorly regulated it can create significant challenges.  These challenges include overwhelming social infrastructures with the unexpected arrival of large numbers of people and the deaths of migrants undertaking dangerous journeys.”

I think the UN is right about the challenges, but remains undeterred as it relates to the struggling receiving communities.  There are all sorts of counter-arguments to this foolishness, including the fact that if people are allowed to pick up and move away from their third or fourth-world cesspool country, then there will never be an impetus within that country to change direction that might benefit all of its citizens.  Suppose British colonists in North America, fed up with tyranny, simply moved away to Mexico —would there ever have been an American Revolution?  How would this have impacted our country today?  Since we’re talking about Mexico, this is precisely why we Americans have so many illegal immigrants from that cesspool.

In any case, Italy isn’t having any of this.  In direct opposition to the global fascists in the United Nations (why are they headquartered in New York, again?), the Italian legislation has just passed a law that pushes back against the compact.  Here’s what they’ve done:

1.Italy will only grant asylum to legitimate refugees of war, or victims of political persecution.  If individuals who have been granted asylum break the law, which is to say convicted of crimes involving threats of violence to public officials, physical assault, female genital mutilation, or theft, they will be deported

2.Italy has approved tough new immigration and security laws that will make it easier to deport criminal migrants, including the stripping them of Italian citizenship.  The vote in the lower house was 396 to 99.  The new law was promulgated on 3 December 2018.

3.Key provisions of the new law are the Elimination of Humanitarian Protection, which was a provision that sought to undermine the process of asylum; Extends periods of detention for Migrants to 180 days;

Increases funding for deportation of migrants; makes it easier to revoke the status of migrants when they become criminals or trouble-makers; restricts migrants to those identified as “safe countries of origin,” which means countries that have well-established democratic political systems;

decreases the use of shelters to only unaccompanied minors, and only until their situation can be resolved; authorizes revocation of citizenship for any terrorist activity or involvement; increases security measures to guarantee public safety.

Naturally the Italian press is going bonkers over the new law, and I imagine the UN weenies are wetting their pants, but given the events of France over the past week or ten days, Italy isn’t the only rebel to UN foolishness. 

Presently, there are 12 European Union members who have similar restrictions to migration.  Bottom line?  It makes sense to the survival of national and community identity.  Italy isn’t being “mean.”  

It is the main European gateway for migrants arriving by sea.  In 2017, there were 119,369 sea-borne migrants; the year before that, 181,436.  Apparently, Italy has decided that enough is enough.  

Italy will not sign the compact, and no Italian officials will attend the conference in Marrakech.  In renouncing the UN Compact, Italy is joined by Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Israel, Latvia, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland, and the United States.

To me, this is good news —but the United Nations is still traveling at the speed of light in the wrong direction.  Perhaps President Trump should simply suspend any further payments to the UN until it begins acting like an organization composed of mature adults, rather than liberal “the world isn’t fair” teenagers.   

 

UN conference adopts treaty banning nuclear weapons

In a  little reported action of the U.N. last week, the world once again looked into that dark place which makes possible the total annihilation of human life on this beautiful orb known as Mother Earth. Mustang gives us his thoughts with his guest post today.

7 July 2017 – Countries meeting at a United Nations conference in New York adopted the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

Controlling Nuclear Arms

Well, the good news is that several countries have participated in a UN conference designed to prohibit nuclear weapons.  According to Global Security, this was the first ever multilateral, legally-binding instrument for nuclear disarmament over the past 20 years.

The treaty passed by a vote of 122 for, one against (Netherlands), and one abstention (Singapore).  Prohibited will be the undertaking to develop, test, produce, manufacture, acquire, possess, or stockpile nuclear weapons or explosives.

Right.

I am not a fan of nuclear war.  Neither do I think the US was justified in dropping two atom bombs on Japan in 1945.  In late July 1945, the Japanese were ready to throw in the towel.  What led us down this unhappy road was no more than a thirst for revenge against the Japanese (never mind that FDR wanted a war with Japan as much as Elvis wanted his first guitar) —and our own hubris.  At the same time, how well is our prohibitions of firearms working?  Will it be any easier to manage caches of internationally placed atomic weapons, or those as may be stored in such Middle Eastern cesspools?

This move is typical of leftists who think that all we need to do to save the world from idiots such as Fat boy Kim, is to pass a law that cannot and will not be enforced.  I will even suggest that doing silly things such as this simply makes our world an even more dangerous place.  We will be sticking our heads in the sand, pretending that Pakistan, India, Iran, and Saudi Arabia really do not already have atomic weapons.  And, we’ll all be happier in our practiced ignorance.

No, sorry … I don’t buy it.  The only effective way of managing North Korea is to drop twenty or thirty MOABs at strategic locations throughout that godforsaken landscape, ten of which we should place at the epicenter Kim’s bedroom.

The icing on this cake is Costa Rica Ambassador Elayne Whyte Gomez, who told us, “We feel emotional because we are responding to the hopes and dreams of the present and future generations.  We are one step closer to a total elimination of nuclear weapons.”

Right … feeling emotional.

I came across this interesting quote the other day.  It concerns society during the Roman Empire.  “There was nothing inherently wrong with Roman society so long as the citizen’s basic needs were met.  The Roman was content to be ruled by his betters.  For him, that was the natural state of affairs.  All he asked was not to be abused by those in power.”

If this doesn’t describe modern socialist society, then I don’t know what does … and to make matters worse, we now have the United Nations organization dictating to us the way our world will be … how, or if, we may defend ourselves against nitwits (who also happen to be leftists).  It is an aspect of representative democracy that makes me cringe.  I did not elect Gomez to represent my interests in the United Nations … and once more, I will ask: how is that gun control thing working out in Chicago?

Why Samantha Power lighted the U.N. Israel firestorm

Samantha Power. One dangerous woman who voted the infamous abstention vote regarding Israel at the U.N. This is a reflection of Obama’s sentiments as well. Let us not forget. I have posted ad nauseam about how dangerous she is. If we want to know why the gasoline was just thrown on the fire in Israel, it was she who has been lighting the fire throughout the entire Middle East, especially Libya.

Three women who brought us the new long war in Libya, 2012 Bunkerville. For how Samantha Power, Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton broke the Middle East into a million pieces.

Commentary Magazine: (An excellent piece, well worth the full read on our gal)

 In a 2003 article for the New Republic, Power:  “The U.S,” she wrote, “came to be seen less as it sees itself (the cop protecting the world from rogue nations) than as the very runaway state international law needs to contain.”

Power wrote that America’s record in world affairs had been so harmful to the freedoms of people around the world that the United States could remedy the problem only through profound self-criticism and the wholesale adoption of new policies. Acknowledging that President Bush was correct in saying that “some America-bashers” hate the American people’s freedoms, Ms. Power stated that much anti-Americanism derives from the role that U.S. power “has played in denying such freedoms to others” and concluded:

U.S. foreign policy has to be rethought. It needs not tweaking but overhauling….Instituting a doctrine of mea culpa would enhance our credibility by showing that American decision-makers do not endorse the sins of their predecessors. When [then German Chancellor] Willie [sic] Brandt went down on one knee in the Warsaw ghetto, his gesture was gratifying to World War II survivors, but it was also ennobling and cathartic for Germany. Would such an approach be futile for the United States?

One thing is clear: The sudden emergence of Obama’s National Security Council Advisor, Samantha Power, and the “new theory” she is using as justification for action in Libya, has very serious implications for future military action against Israel. As John Podhoretz explains in the New York Post, the “reason” behind the Libyan military strike is not the traditional justification of “protecting the national interest.” It is a “new” standard called “R2P” or “right to protect.” This concept is being promulgated by the “one-world” order activists at the United Nations, like Samantha Power.

Kerry tells Congress to go to heck. Will he take ‘agreement’ to the U.N.?

Haughty John Kerry who just gave a lecture to Congress about “interfering” with policy was the same man who gave aid and comfort to our enemy during the Vietnam War. So now the Iran deal is not a treaty but an agreement that will be taken to the U.N. and sanctions will be lifted. I ask you, who is the traitor?

The Obama administration hinted Thursday that it may take elements of an Iranian nuclear deal to the United Nations — while bypassing Congress for now. And that possibility has turned an already ugly political fight over the negotiations even nastier.

In one scenario floated this week, the White House would not immediately put aspects of an Iran deal up for a vote in Congress. Instead, the Obama administration would take aspects of the agreement to the United Nations Security Council — making the U.N. the target of a Congressional hatefest.

U.N. returns Bombs found to terrorists, Kerry rewards Palestine with our bucks

Here we have the latest from one of the “valley Girls” Marie Harf, State Department spokesperson. Bottom line, Lurch AKA John Kerry hands out our bucks to the same agency that is returning rockets it found in Palestine schools back to the terrorists, but not to worry, Lurch managed to fly into Israel even though the FAA banned flights. So the squeeze is on. Israel can’t last long without the airport open, and apparently we will help fill the coffers of Hamas. UNRWA arms the terrorists. The screws tighten on Israel.

WASHINGTON — The State Department defended Secretary of State John Kerry’s decision to grant $15 million in humanitarian aid to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNWRA), even as the organization confirmed the discovery of additional rockets stored in one of its Gaza schools. Critics in Washington, however, blasted the secretary’s decision to include UNRWA as a recipient of part of a $47 million humanitarian package designed to aid Gazan civilians. […]

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a senior official at a Washington pro-Israel organization described the announcement of funding for UNRWA as “a bewildering decision.” UNRWA announced last week an effort to raise $60 million in emergency aid to Gaza, one-quarter of which would be covered by the US contribution.

“UNRWA is objectively on the side of Hamas,” the official argued. “They give Hamas money, they do press work on behalf of Hamas, and as of this week they’re literally arming Hamas. Our Arab and Israeli allies all want Hamas and its supporters weakened. It’s very strange that the State Department would rush in, right when we’re asking the region to trust us on Iran, and functionally throw money at a terror organization that Iran has done so much to build up over the years.”

But State Department Deputy Spokeswoman Marie Harf said that the organization was a legitimate recipient for US aid, arguing that “it is an important organization.”

 

“So you don’t — you don’t believe that this amounts to aiding and abetting of” Hamas, a reporter asked.

“I would certainly not say that,” Harf said.

UNRWA maintains that it handed the missiles over to “local authorities” in Gaza that were not affiliated with Hamas. However, this is unlikely since the terror group is in control of all forces in Gaza.

Published on Jul 22, 2014

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf defended a United Nations agency that was caught giving Hamas rockets back to the terror group on two separate occasions after they were discovered in the agency’s schools in Gaza.

The U.N.’s Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which operates several schools in Gaza, admitted earlier this week that it had found Hamas rockets stored in two of its schools. On both occasions, UNRWA gave the rockets over to local authorities, who is most cases operate in tandem with Hamas.

The incident has drawn fierce backlash from international observers, though Foggy Bottom sought Tuesday to deflect blame from UNRWA.

Obama throws U.S. under the bus in Malaysia, says U.N.could sanction U.S.

So Obama wants again throws us under the bus in Malaysia. He compares us to similar Human Rights violations that the U.N. would find egregious? The very same day, this headline in Malaysia  Muslim Medical Association Urges Doctors to Amputate the Hands of Thieves » This Muslim loving President either is clueless, or prefers to see us bow to the new rise of Islam.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — President Obama celebrated America’s closer ties with the Muslim-majority nation of Malaysia Sunday, even as he suggested “there’s more work to be done” here on the issue of human rights.

Obama’s visit — the first by a U.S. president since 1966 — offered Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Razak a chance to show off how much the nation has advanced since President Lyndon B. Johnson stopped here decades earlier.

“Like Malaysia, we constantly have to be on guard against racial attitudes that divide us, and instead embrace our diversity as a strength,” he said. 

The president noted that some Muslims in Burma have experienced discrimination, adding, “Here in Malaysia, this is a majority Muslim country. But then, there are times where those who are non-Muslims find themselves perhaps being disadvantaged or experiencing hostility.” 

Obama emphasized his connections to Southeast Asia throughout his trip. At Saturday’sstate dinner, hosted by King Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah at the Istana Negara palace, the president spoke of his mother’s love of batik and uttered a few phrases in the local language.

He prompted shouts of appreciation during the town hall event from a delegation of Indonesians when he mentioned he had lived in their home country. And the president suggested that he would continue to promote closer ties between the United States and Asia, because it is “part of the connection I felt, and still feel, to this region.”

Meanwhile, this story:Muslim Medical Association Urges Doctors to Amputate the Hands of Thieves »

Before all do no harm is not exactly a major Muslim medical principle. Before all follow Sharia law is. And that’s a problem in Malaysia, which Obama compared to the US, but which is going down the dark road of Islamic law.

Muslim doctors have sworn to an Islamic doctor’s oath which also binds them to Islam as a way of life and the implementation of Islamic laws including hudud, it added.

“A Muslim doctor performs his task according to the Islamic medical doctor’s oath, which fully supports Islam as a way of life, and this includes fully supporting Shariah laws,” i-Medik chairman Prof Dr Azmi Md Nor said.

With all that in mind, you can accept that the Islamic mutilations will be carried out humanely.

Obama wants to increase contributions to United Nations by 33 percent

What does a law mean anyway? In 1994 President Clinton signed a law capping the U.S. contributions for peace keeping. But what the heck. With good old Samantha Power at the U.N., what does a law mean anyway. By the way, we  are over $17 trillion in debt. Keep this oldie moldie post in mind:  192 Countries exist in the world. We give Aid to 150 March 14, 2011

There are 192 countries in the world. We give out Aid to 150 of them. This doesn’t include that we have 120 military installations world-wide with hundreds of thousands of troops in an attempt to keep the world at relative peace. This is just what finished the Roman Empire. Can we  not  learn from History? Are we doomed to repeat it?

Via CNS News:

When U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power testifies before a House Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday,the panel will consider a budget request for international organizations that is 33 percent bigger than last year’s, including a 43 percent hike in U.S. contributions to peacekeeping missions.

The administration’s fiscal year 2015 budget request for the U.N. and other organizations is $4.036 billion, up from $3.031 billion in FY2014. For contributions to peacekeeping missions, it is asking for $2.518 billion, up from $1.765 last year.

The $2.518 billion for peacekeeping amounts to 28.36 percent of the U.N.’s total peacekeeping budget. The U.S. also provides 22 percent of the separate U.N. operating budget. The U.N. has 193 member states.

According to Heritage Foundation scholar Brett Schaefer, President Clinton in 1994 signed a law setting a 25 percent cap on U.S. contributions for U.N. peacekeeping, which at the time were running at around 30 percent.

Obama making U.N. climate agreement that doesn’t need congressional approval

There was a about a minute of Fox’s news time spent on this story that should be making everyone madder than hell. Most of the report was spent on Podesta, the architect of this nasty Executive Order coming down. Apparently Podesta has been at the U.N. for over at decade working on his plan of redistributing America’s wealth. Podesta, now one of the most dangerous people in the administration. He worked for Clinton, so if anyone has any illusions of what a Hillary Presidency would look like, look no further. This is not the first we heard of him. Recall

Obama’s Podesta wants to give the U.S oceans to the U.N. December 12, 2013 — bunkerville

President Obama’s new staff adviser, senior progressive strategist John Podesta,  is a key player in an initiative seeking more government regulation of the  oceans and the ceding of U.S. oceans to United Nations-based international law.

That background could inform Podesta’s agenda in the White House, where he is to  serve for one year as a “counselor” to the president. The New  York Times reported he will focus on executive orders and so-called climate  change issues along with Obamacare.

Last year, Obama’s Interagency Ocean Policy Taskforce, created in 2010 also  by executive order, recommended the U.S. join the U.N.’s Law of the Sea  Convention.

Here we go: with today’s disturbing news

The Obama administration is quietly forging ahead with plans to offer up an international commitment to reduce carbon dioxide emissions to fight global warming — without congressional approval.

Reuters reports that the U.S. submitted its vision for a new international global warming agreement to the United Nations on Wednesday, suggesting a “bifurcated approach” of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol — placing different emissions targets for rich and poor countries.

“So this is just the latest example of President Obama’s contempt for obeying the Constitution and our laws,” Myron Ebell, director of the Center of Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “In the past, rulers who act as if the law does not apply to them were called tyrants.”

“CEI has warned for several years that the Obama Administration would follow advice from environmental pressure groups and try to sign a new U.N. agreement that ignores the Senate’s constitutional role,” Ebell said.

“It is also worth noting that any agreement Obama negotiates will not take effect until after he leaves office, so that a future President and Congress will be stuck with the damage it does to the economy,” Ebell added. “But without Senate ratification, it should be fairly easy for a future President and Congress to dismantle.”
