Erik Rush: Obama Clandestinely Trained And Funded ISIS 27.11.2015 Crooks Liars
When your source for paranoid conspiracy theories, which alleges that President Obama is complicit in the funding and training of the terror group Daesh (ISIS), is too paranoid for Fox News, I think we have hit DEFCON 1 for wingnuts. If you've never heard of World Net Daily's Erik Rush, here's an excerpt from his recent article entitled: The Left's Motive For Importing Terrorists. It is widely known among those who do not get their news from the alphabet TV networks that Obama has been clandestinely importing Muslims from Syria, Iraq, Somalia and other destabilized Muslim nations for several years. Now, on the pretext of humanitarianism, he intends to prey upon Americans’ sympathy to import tens of thousands more. Why do leftists advocate for a policy that will domestically destabilize America? As with so many harmful policies they’ve supported, they do so that they may later offer a statist, liberty-killing remedy. In this case, the cure will be a more well-developed surveillance and police state, ...

Can Middle East tourism ever recover? 25.11.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
The Islamic world’s mystery and riches once attracted droves of western holidaymakers. But terrorism has devastated the industry in Egypt and Tunisia – and even countries untouched by conflict. Is there any way back? It was a wild night in the Yemeni port of Aden. At the first nightclub, we met a group of musicians who had finished their set and were drinking local beer – made in Arabia’s only brewery . They said we should all go to the Mövenpick hotel club. They promised a sensational evening. When we arrived, a full Egyptian orchestra in tuxedos was already whipping up a storm of wailing and crashing for a Syrian bellydancer who was gyrating across the tables. The songs were all classics from the 1930s and 40s by singers such as Umm Kulthum, Sayed Darwish and Mohamed Fawzy, an urgent storm of melancholy and longing.
