Warrenpoint ambush
The Warrenpoint ambush[6][7][8] or Narrow Water ambush[9][10][11] (also called the Warrenpoint massacre[12][13][14][15] or Narrow Water massacre)[16][17][18] was a guerrilla attack[19] by the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA)'s South Armagh Brigade on 27 August 1979. The IRA ambushed the British Army with two large roadside bombs at Narrow Water Castle (near Warrenpoint) in Northern Ireland. The castle is on the banks of the Newry River, which marks the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
The first bomb targeted a British Army convoy and the second targeted the reinforcements sent to deal with the incident. Eighteen British soldiers were killed and six were seriously injured, making it the deadliest attack on the British Army during the Troubles. An English civilian was also killed and another injured when British soldiers fired across the border after the first blast.


First explosion

At 16:40, a British Army convoy consisting of one Land Rover and two four-ton lorries was driving past Narrow Water Castle on the A2 road. As it passed, a 500-pound (227 kg) fertiliser bomb, hidden in a lorry loaded with strawbales and parked near the castle, was detonated by remote control. The explosion caught the last lorry in the convoy, hurling it on its side and instantly killing six members of 2nd Battalion, The Parachute Regiment, whose bodies were scattered across the road.[20] There were only two survivors amongst the soldiers travelling in the lorry; they both received serious injuries. Anthony Wood (19), the lorry's driver, was one of those killed. All that remained of Wood's body was his pelvis, which had been welded to the seat by the fierce heat of the blast.[21]
Immediately after the blast, the soldiers were under the impression that they were receiving sniper fire from woods on the other side of the border,[22][23] a distance of only 57 metres (187 ft). The soldiers began firing across the water. An uninvolved civilian, Michael Hudson (an Englishman who was a coachman at Buckingham Palace), was killed by the soldiers' gunfire and his cousin Barry Hudson wounded. They had been birdwatching on an island opposite the castle.[23] However, according to Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) researchers, the soldiers may have mistaken the sound of ammunition cooking off for enemy gunfire from across the border.[24]
Two IRA members arrested by the Gardaí and suspected of being behind the ambush, Brendan Burns and Joe Brennan, had traces of gunsmoke residue on their hands and the motorbike they were riding on.[25]
On hearing the first explosion a Royal Marine unit alerted the British Army and reinforcements from other units of the Parachute Regiment were dispatched to the scene by road. A rapid reaction unit, consisting of medical staff and senior commander Lieutenant-Colonel David Blair (the commanding officer of the Queen's Own Highlanders), together with his signaller Lance Corporal Victor MacLeod, were sent by Gazelle helicopter; another helicopter, a Wessex, landed to pick up the wounded. Colonel Blair assumed command once at the site.[26]

Second explosion

At 17:12, thirty-two minutes after the first explosion, a second bomb hidden in milk pails exploded against the gate lodge on the opposite side of the road, destroying it and sending lumps of granite flying through the air. The IRA had been studying how the British Army behaved after a bombing and correctly predicted that they would set up an incident command point (ICP) in the nearby gatehouse.

Narrow Water Castle
The second explosion, caused by an 800-pound (363 kg) fertiliser bomb, killed twelve soldiers: ten from the Parachute Regiment and the two from the Queen's Own Highlanders.[27][28] Mike Jackson, then a major in the Parachute Regiment, was at the scene soon after the second explosion and later described seeing body parts scattered over the road, in the water and hanging from the trees. He was asked to identify the face of his friend, Major Peter Fursman, still recognisable after it had been completely ripped from his head by the explosion and recovered from the water by divers from the Royal Engineers. Only one of Colonel Blair's epaulettes remained to identify him as his body had been vaporised in the blast.[21] The epaulette was taken from the scene by Brigadier David Thorne to a security briefing with Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher to "illustrate the human factor" of the attack.[29]
Press photographer Peter Molloy, who arrived at the scene after the first explosion, came close to being shot by an angry Paratrooper who saw him taking photographs of the dead and dying, instead of offering to help the wounded. The soldier was tackled by his comrades. 25 years later, Molloy said, "I was shouted at and called all sorts of things but I understood why. I had trespassed on the worst day of these fellas' lives and taken pictures of it."[30]


Two men arrested after the bombing, Brendan Burns and Joe Brennan, were later released on bail due to lack of evidence.[31]
The Warrenpoint ambush happened on the same day that Lord Louis Mountbatten, the cousin (strictly, second cousin once-removed) of Queen Elizabeth II and uncle of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, was killed by an IRA unit near Sligo along with three others.
Immediately after the Mountbatten and Warrenpoint attacks, the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) retaliated by shooting dead a Catholic man, John Patrick Hardy (43), at his home in Belfast's New Lodge estate. Hardy was targeted by the UVF Belfast Brigade in the mistaken belief that he was a member of the Provisional IRA.[32]
According to Toby Harnden, the attack "drove a wedge" between the Army and the RUC. Lieutenant-General Sir Timothy Creasey, General Officer Commanding Northern Ireland, suggested to Margaret Thatcher that internment should be brought back and that liaison with the Gardaí should be left in the hands of the military.[33] Sir Kenneth Newman, the RUC Chief Constable, claimed instead that the British Army practice, already in place since 1975, of supplying their garrisons in South County Armagh by helicopter, gave too much freedom of movement to the IRA.[34][35] One tangible security outcome was the appointment of Sir Maurice Oldfield to a new position of Co-ordinator of Security Intelligence in Northern Ireland. His role was to co-ordinate intelligence between the military, MI5 and the RUC. The other was the expansion of the RUC by 1,000 members.[36] Tim Pat Coogan asserts that ultimately, the death of these 18 soldiers hastened the move to Ulsterisation.[37]
Lieutenant-Colonel Blair is remembered on a memorial at Radley School.[38]
IRA member Brendan Burns was killed in 1988 when a bomb he was transporting exploded prematurely.[39] IRA member Joe Brennan was jailed in 1982 for carrying out an armed bank raid to raise funds for the organisation. He left the IRA in 1986 and went on to become a successful property developer and novelist.[40] 

Warrenpoint falls silent as soldiers’ families recall IRA massacre

A HUSH descended over a Northern Ireland beauty spot yesterday as families and ex-servicemen marked the 30th anniversary of an IRA double bombing which claimed the lives of 18 soldiers and a civilian.
The massacre beside Narrow Water Castle at Warrenpoint, Co Down, resulted in the army’s largest single loss of life in more than 35 years of the conflict.
The two bombs were detonated on the same day the Queen’s cousin Lord Mountbatten was murdered in an IRA bomb attack on his fishing boat off the west coast of Ireland.
As friends and staff of the Mountbattens held a church memorial in Mullaghmore, Co Sligo, former soldiers and relatives of those killed at Warrenpoint huddled in the rain as the names of the 18 army victims were read out.
A lone piper played a lament and wreaths of poppies were laid by military and political representatives, among them Democratic Unionist MP Jeffrey Donaldson.
“I well remember as a child hearing the explosions here at Narrow Water and not knowing then the tragic loss of life which had occurred,” Mr Donaldson said.
“I think it’s appropriate that we remember the contribution that the soldiers made to help get us to where we are today, which is thankfully a more peaceful society.”
The first explosion at Narrow Water killed 16 members of the Parachute Regiment, the second killed two members of the Queen’s Own Highlanders who had been sent to the scene.
Civilian Michael Hudson was shot dead while bird watching on a nearby island when soldiers opened fire across Carlingford Lough into the Republic from where they believed bombers had detonated the devices. His name was not included in the roll call.
Organisers said they have been unable to trace relatives to ask their permission.
Narrow Water was the biggest single loss of life in any one attack during the Troubles until the 1998 Real IRA Omagh bomb atrocity killed 29 people, including a mother pregnant with twins.
Terry Wood’s 19-year-old brother, Anthony Wood, was killed in the Warrenpoint massacre.
“It’s something that never goes away. I’ve lived for 30 years with the pain of my brother’s death and I’ve seen it in my own family. It’s important to keep that memory going,” Mr Wood said.
“I came here to never let the people that did it forget, and to show them that we’ll never forget.

Preston has been having racial problems for years.......

Stephen McLaughlin was murdered in Preston in November 1997 and was a terrible example of the failure of the multi-racial experiment, and the Trial of his killers was an even worse example of a grotesque perversion of Justice. Stephen was 20 years old, with a steady girlfriend who was pregnant with their second child when he was murdered.
11 of his attackers were charged with his murder............The Judge and Prosecution decided that a lengthy murder trial would exacerbate and serve to inflame racial tension in Preston .
As a result, the Crown had decided to drop all eleven Murder charges against the 11 Asians.
No doubt young people in Preston still remember Stephen McLaughlin - the man who was murdered by a large gang of Asian men - but who received no Justice in our fair Land !
We have all heard of Stephen Lawrence - but a white Preston lad Stephen McLaughlin, is unknown

And here............................

 More race trouble in Preston

Hundreds clash in street battle

A teenager was stabbed when hundreds of people became involved in a battle on the streets of Preston.

Trouble centred on the Jamea Masjid mosque in Clarendon Street, Avenham, for more than four hours last night (Sunday) and led to a massive policing operation.Preston's police chief said the problems were triggered by local youths throwing stones at cars belonging to people attending the mosque.This sparked a response from around 200 people inside the mosque who came out to defend those under attack.

It resulted in one 16-year-old Asian youth being stabbed in the arm, but ambulance crews were turned back as the police felt it was too dangerous for them to enter the scene.

Fighting continued into the early hours and led to police requiring back-up from officers as far away as Lancaster and Burnley. 

Here is the latest murder by non-whites on white people. And just like in the Rotherham mass child sex grooming case the authorities will do their damnedest to ensure 'community cohesion'.

UPDATE: Attack on Jonjo ‘not random’, say police

Seven men have now been arrested on suspicion of murder following the “vicious and unprovoked” killing of a Preston teenager.
Detectives believe the death of Jonjo Highton, 18, on Saturday evening, was not a random attack, and said he was attacked by a group of people.
The man leading the investigation has now appealed for help to find two cars, thought to have been in the area that night.
Police were called to St Stephen’s Road in Deepdale at about 11.20pm on Saturday, after reports of a serious assault.
Emergency services that attended found Jonjo in the street with serious injuries.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
An investigation led by the Force Major Investigation Team is continuing and seven men were on Tuesday in custody on suspicion of murder.
They are all men from Preston aged between 19 and 27.
Det Supt Eddie Thistlethwaite said: “We believe at least two cars pulled up at Charnock Street and St Stephen’s Road.
“We believe at least eight men got out of those vehicles and I’m appealing for witnesses.
“A group of those males then attacked Jonjo Highton needlessly and savagely.”
Police are now trying to locate a blue Vauxhall Vectra, registration KG04 EJ, which they believe was at the scene.
Det Supt Thistlethwaite said: “Has it been inadvertently purchased by anybody, has it been scrapped by an innocent scrap dealer, is it in a lock up?”
He said he didn’t believe Jonjo’s murder was a “race hate crime”, but said he thought he had been attacked by a “group of young people”.
He said: “We have got seven people in custody from 19 to 27, and they are being interviewed this week.
“Jonjo was quite savagely slashed and tragically that resulted in his death.”

Bilderberg 2015 location confirmed: Austria

The location for the 2015 annual conference of the Bilderberg Group has been confirmed. The yearly transatlantic summit, which is attended by senior politicians, bank bosses and the heads of some of the world’s largest companies, will be held at the Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol, a luxury hotel and conference centre in Austria.
The Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol is a “five-star hotel conference centre” tucked away in the mountain forests a few kilometres west of the Seefeld ski resort, and conveniently close to Innsbruck airport. The hotel is part of the privately-owned Liebherr Group, a giant Switzerland-based manufacturing conglomeration, owned by the billionaire German Liebherr family.
According to the hotel’s Meetings & Events brochure, “the hotel lies at an altitude of 1,300 metres in an exclusive setting in the Tirolean Alps and offers panoramic views of magnificent mountain peaks.” The isolated, Eagle’s Nest style venue has a 400-capacity conference centre with “a magnificent Alpine backdrop” and state-of-the-art conference facilities.
The location of the 2015 conference has now been confirmed by Austrian police. It will be the third time the Bilderberg summit has been held in Austria, and 27 years since the previous occasion. The 1988 conference was also held at the Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol; the 1979 conference was held in Baden, just south of Vienna.
It’s thought that the 2015 conference will be held in early June, although the exact date has yet to be confirmed. The hotel is fully booked on the first two weekends of June (4th-7th and 11th-14th).
Participants at the 2014 conference in Copenhagen included: Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne MP; Paul Achleitner, the Chairman of Deutsche Bank; Stephen Poloz, the Governor of the Bank of Governor; Robert Dudley, the Group Chief Executive of BP; Eric Schmidt, the Executive Chairman of Google; Douglas Flint, the Group Chairman of HSBC; Christine Lagarde, the head of the IMF; and Peter Sutherland, the Chairman Goldman Sachs International.

 Bad Nenndorf march and rally - August 2014

Revealed: How fear of being seen as racist stopped social workers saving up to 1,400 children from sexual exploitation at the hands of Asian men in just ONE TOWN

  • Report found 1,400 children abused between 1997 and 2013 in Rotherham
  • The figure is likely to be a conservative estimate of the true scale
  • Victims terrorised with guns and doused in petrol and threatened with fire
  • More than a third of the cases were already know to agencies 
  • Author of the report condemned 'blatant' failings by council's leadership
  • Action blocked by political correctness as staff 'feared appearing racist' 
  • Majority of victims described the perpetrators as 'Asian' men 
  • Leader of Rotherham Council has stepped down with immediate effect  
  • No council employees will receive disciplinary action, leaders state 

The sexual abuse of about 1,400 children at the hands of Asian men went unreported for 16 years because staff feared they would be seen as racist, a report said today. 
Children as young as 11 were trafficked, beaten, and raped by large numbers of men between 1997 and 2013 in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, the council commissioned review into child protection revealed. 
And shockingly, more than a third of the cases were already know to agencies. 
But according to the report's author: 'several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought racist'.

Professor Alexis Jay, who wrote the report, condemned the 'blatant' collective failures by the council's leadership, concluding: 'It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered.'
The landmark report which exposed widespread failures of the council, police and social services revealed:
  • Victims were doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, terrorised with guns, made to witness brutally-violent rapes and told they would be the next if they spoke out;
  • They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten and intimidated;
  • One victim described gang rape as 'a way of life'; 
  • Police 'regarded many child victims with contempt'; 
  • Some fathers tried to rescue their children from abuse but were arrested themselves; 
  • The approximate figure of 1,400 abuse victims is likely to be a conservative estimate of the true scale of abuse.
The lack of reports was partly down to a fear of being racist, Prof Jay wrote, as the majority of the perpetrators were described as 'Asian men', and many were said to be of Pakistani origin. 
One young person told the inquiry that 'gang rape' was a usual part of growing up in the area of Rotherham where she lived.
Zafran Ramzan

Jailed: Zafran Ramzan, 21, (left) was jailed for nine years and Mohsin Khan (right) for four in the same case
In two cases, fathers had tracked down their daughters and tried to remove them from houses where they were being abused - only to be arrested themselves when police were called to the scene. 
And one child declined her initial offer to give a statement after allegedly receiving a text from a perpetrator threatening to harm her younger sister.
The failures happened despite three reports between 2002 and 2006 'which could not have been clearer in the description of the situation in Rotherham'. 
Prof Jay said the first of these reports was 'effectively suppressed' because senior officers did not believe the data.
The other two were ignored, the professor said. 
Fears had also been raised by schools over the 16 years but the alerts went uninvestigated.
Teachers reported seeing children as young as 11, 12 and 13 being picked up outside schools by cars and taxis, given presents and mobile phones and taken to meet large numbers of unknown men in Rotherham or other local towns and cities. 
The majority of victims believed the perpetrators to be their boyfriend who gave them gifts, alcohol and drugs. Some of the victims still maintain they were not groomed or abused.
Analysing the case studies, Prof Jay said many of the children came from dysfunctional families, had parents with addictions, and had suffered domestic or sexual abuse as a child.

Some had serious mental health problems.
Councillors seemed to dismiss previous reports as a one-off problem which they hoped would go away, according to Prof Jay.
She said: 'Others remembered clear direction from their managers not to do so.'
The spotlight first fell on Rotherham in 2010 when five men, described by a judge as 'sexual predators', were given lengthy jail terms after they were found guilty of grooming teenage girls for sex. 
The five men - Umar Razaq, Adil Hussain, Razwan Razaq, Zafran Ramzan, and Mohsin Khan - preyed on their victims over several months and threatened them with violence if they refused their advances.
One of the men branded his victim a ‘white bitch’ when she resisted, while a second smirked: ‘I’ve used you and abused you.'
The men, all British-born Pakistanis, attacked the four girls in play areas, parks and in the back of their cars, Sheffield Crown Court heard.


Martin Kimber said no council employees will face disciplinary action following the damning report
Martin Kimber said no council employees will face disciplinary action following the damning report
No council employees will face disciplinary action in a town where 1,400 children suffered sexual exploitation in a 16-year period, the local authority's chief executive has said.
Rotherham Council leader Roger Stone resigned today following the publication of a shocking report which detailed gang rapes, grooming, trafficking and other sexual exploitation on a wide scale in the South Yorkshire town.
But council chief executive Martin Kimber said he did not have the evidence to discipline any individuals working for the council despite the report saying there had been 'blatant' collective failures by its leadership at the time.
Mr Kimber said: 'Officers in senior positions responsible for children's safeguarding services throughout the critical periods when services fell some way short of today's standards do not work for the council today.
'To that extent, I have not been able to identify any issues of professional practice related to current serving officers of this council that would require me to consider use of disciplinary or capability procedures.'
Mr Stone said in a statement: 'Having considered the report, I believe it is only right that I, as leader, take responsibility on behalf of the council for the historic failings that are described so clearly in the report and it is my intention to do so.
'For this reason, I have today agreed with my Labour group colleagues that I will be stepping down as leader with immediate effect.'
Professor Alexis Jay, who wrote the report, said she found examples of 'children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally-violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone'.
She said: 'They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten and intimidated.'
She said she found that girls as young as 11 had been raped by large numbers of men.
They gave them gifts and introduced them to their friends. The girls were abused so frequently that after many months it ‘became a way of life’.
The girls, who were being monitored by social services, were eventually rescued by police and removed from their homes amid growing concerns for their safety.
The leader of Rotherham Council, Roger Stone, has today quit in light of the findings. He has led the council since 2003. 
The current Police Commissioner for South Yorkshire is Shaun Wright, who was widely criticised for failing to tackle sex abuse in Rotherham during his five-year stint in the council's children and young people's department.
From 2005 to 2010, Cllr Wright was in charge of children's services in the borough and worked closely with Joyce Thacker, who became Director of Children's Services in 2008. 
The prosecution was the first of a series of high-profile cases in the last four years that have revealed the exploitation of young girls in towns and cities including Rochdale, Derby and Oxford.


Laura Wilson, 17, was murdered for bringing shame on the families of two Pakistani men who had used her for sex
Laura Wilson, 17, was murdered for bringing shame on the families of two Pakistani men who had used her for sex

The spotlight fell on Rotherham in 2010, after Laura Wilson, 17, was murdered for bringing shame on the families of two Pakistani men who had used her for sex.
It was later revealed that social workers had known for six years that the white teenage mother was at clear risk from predatory Asian gangs, and had received information about certain adults suspected of targeting her from the age of 11.
Laura, 17, had been groomed by a string of British Pakistanis before she was stabbed and thrown into a canal to die for informing her abusers' families of the sexual relationships.
Her killer Ashtiaq Asghar, who was 18 at the time, was given a life sentence and will serve a minimum of 17-and-a-half years after he pleaded guilty to murdering Laura in October 2010.
In 2012, the council's Safeguarding Children Board published a serious case review but key passages which reveal they knew she was at particular risk from 'Asian men' had been blocked out with black lines.
The council went to court in an attempt to tried to suppress the hidden information after a uncensored copy of the report was leaked to the Times newspaper but they abandoned legal action.

The uncensored report confirms that Laura, identified as Child S, had dealings with 15 agencies and identified 'numerous missed opportunities' to protect her.
It states that she eventually became 'almost invisible' to care professionals.
The hidden information included the knowledge that at the age of 13 Laura and a friend had been given alcohol by men at a takeaway who then asked what she would give them in return.
Murder: Laura was stabbed repeatedly by 18-year-old Ashtiaq Asghar before being thrown into this South Yorkshire canal to die

She had also been referred to a child sexual exploitation project just three months after her 11th birthday. Another censored passage reveals that Laura had been 'mentioned' during a 2009 police inquiry that eventually led to the conviction of five Pakistani men for sex offences against three underage girls.
While the published report mentioned the fact that a friend, who Laura knew when she was 10, was 'thought to have become involved in sexual exploitation', it concealed the succeeding passage which read: 'with particular reference to Asian men'.
In August 2013, four women launched legal action against Rotherham council over 'systematic failures' to protect them from 'sexual abuse by predatory men when they were children' according to their lawyers.
One girl, known only as 'Jessica' claims she was abused daily as a 14-year-old by a 24-year-old man after social services failed to accept that she was a victim grooming.
On one ocassion married father-of-two Arshid Hussain was even caught with the half naked schoolgirl under his bed but documents revealed that police arrested her - and let him go.
Rotherham, South Yorkshire, has become known as Britain's under-age sex capital, after a string of high profile cased where authorities have let down vulnerable children.
In another shocking case, reported in 2012, a 13-year-old girl told police how she had been groomed and raped by an Asian sex gang.
She wrote a harrowing letter to herself at the age of 14 addressed to her alter-ego Michelle, in which she wrote, 'I feel like the Asians really hate me even when they say they love me'.
The girl, who told police in 2003 about the rape that took her virginity and the time five men queued outside a bedroom to demand sex from her, added, 'They took all my dreams and my life away from me.'
Warnings: The report comes after two others done between 2002 and 2006 which 'could not have been clearer'

Following the 2010 case, The Times claimed that details from 200 restricted-access documents showed how police and child protection agencies in the South Yorkshire town had extensive knowledge of these activities for a decade, yet a string of offences went unprosecuted.
The allegations led to a range of official investigations, including one by the Home Affairs Select Committee.
Last year, South Yorkshire police and crime commissioner (PCC) Shaun Wright said there had been 'a failure of management' at South Yorkshire Police as he responded to a report into his force on this issue by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC).


Resigned: Roger Stone has stepped down with immediate effect following the release of the report
Resigned: Roger Stone has stepped down with immediate effect following the release of the report
Announcing his resignation with immediate effect, Roger Stone said: 'Today's publication of Alexis Jay's inquiry report has highlighted historic failings by Rotherham Borough Council and its partners in tackling the scourge that is child sexual exploitation.
'The Council will now rightly consider the next steps to be taken following its publication, including ways to build on the significant improvements put in place in recent years.
'I join our Chief Executive Martin Kimber and our Cabinet Member Cllr Paul Lakin in sending my heartfelt apologies to those young people and their families who this report shows have been badly let down by the Council in the past.
'Like any right-minded person, I am disgusted by CSE and abhor the lifelong damage that it wreaks upon the lives of all those affected by it. 
'It is a matter of great regret for me, as it is for many others, that so many people have been traumatised by CSE here in Rotherham.
'However, having considered the report, I believe it is only right that I, as Leader, take responsibility on behalf of the Council for the historic failings that are described so clearly in the report and it is my intention to do so.
'For this reason, I have today agreed with my Labour Group colleagues that I will be stepping down as Leader, with immediate effect. 
'A new Leader will be elected in due course.
'I have always considered my most important job as Leader has been to share my passion for this borough and to work in the best interests of everyone here in Rotherham. 
'I believe my decision to step down, though not an easy one for me to make, does exactly that, allowing a new chapter in the history of Rotherham Borough Council to begin.
'I would like to take the opportunity to thank all those within the Council and in our partner organisations who have worked with me over the past 10 years and I wish them all the very best for the future.' 
NWN: There's going to be an awful lot of wailing and hiding from the politically correct drones in the Rotherham area in the Social Services, Council Officials, elected Councillors, local media and senior police officers. Their pushing of the 'marxist experiment of political correctness', has allowed these monsters to get away with this disgrace for many a year..... nationalists warned about these characters many years ago, but we were accused of being alarmist racists!

All in the Family: David Cameron’s Jewish Roots and the Coreligionists Who Brought Him to Power

David CameronWhile speaking to a 500-strong group of Jewish lobbyists in London in 2007, UK Prime Minister David Cameron declared,(1)I am a Zionist“. He went on to add, “I’m not just a good friend of Israel but I am, as you put it, good for Jews.
These comments can easily be explained merely as fawning attempts to placate and appease the Jewish lobby – a necessary step for any who wish to assume high office. One has to ask the question though: why does ‘Anglican’ David Cameron conceal his own Jewish identity?
David Cameron is not merely of Jewish descent; he hails from a bloodline that can fairly be described as Jewish royalty, yet he claims never to have known this. As he spoke to the Movement for Reform Judaism in 2010 he described his learning of his Jewish ancestry(2) as the “highlight” of his year.
While studying the Cameron family tree in 2009,(3) Dr Yaakov Wise – a University of Manchester historian who specialises in Jewish history – found that David Cameron is descended from a highly distinguished Jewish family line (emphases added):
And according to Dr Wise, who has been using archival material to examine the Cameron family tree, the Tory leader could also be a direct descendent of the greatest ever Hebrew prophet, Moses.
Cameron is a descendent of banker Emile Levita, who came to Britain as a German immigrant in the 1850s. Emile Levita was himself a descendent of Elijah Levita, who lived from 1469-1549.
During the last years of his life Elijah Levita produced, among other works, two major books: the 1541 Translator’s Book, the first dictionary of the Targums or Aramaic commentaries on the Hebrew Bible.
His lexicon of 1542 explained much of the Mishnaic Hebrew language and was a supplement to two important earlier dictionaries.
Elijah Levita also wrote what is thought to be the first ever Yiddish novel – called the Bove-bukh (The Book of Bove) written in 1507 and printed in 1541.
The book is based on an Italian version of an Anglo-Norman tale about a queen who betrays her husband and causes his death.
Emile Levita, who was granted citizenship in 1871, is Cameron’s great great grandfather.
Cameron’s great-great grandfather, Emile Levita was a German Jewish financier who emigrated to Britain and obtained British citizenship in 1871. Levita was the director of the Chartered Bank of India, Australia and China which in 1969 became Standard Chartered Bank. Levita himself is descended from Elijah Levita, a Jewish scholar of out-and-out luminary status whose writings included not only a dictionary explaining much of the Talmudic Hebrew language (or ‘Mishnaic Hebrew’), but the first ever Yiddish novel (Yiddish, meaning literally “Jewish” is a language of German Ashkenazi Jews written in the Hebrew alphabet).
Considering the sheer historical eminence of his ancestors, it would take real gullibility to believe that David Cameron ‘found out’ about his roots one year before he assumed office. The question is not ‘why did Cameron have no knowledge of his Jewish roots’, but rather, why would he conceal his Jewish identity?
A 2006 report by the Jewish Chronicle(4) cited here by Stuart Littlewood(5) perhaps goes some way in explaining this. The report titled ‘Team Cameron’s big Jewish backers‘ is a laundry list of powerful members of the Jewish community who donated over £1 million to David Cameron, explaining his inexplicable rise to power after a relatively mundane and unremarkable political career.
The biggest Jewish donor to the party while Mr Cameron has been leader is gaming magnate Lord Steinberg, who has donated £530,000, plus a loan of £250,000. Hedge-fund owner Stanley Fink has donated £103,000, even though he was a declared supporter of Mr Cameron’s leadership rival, Liam Fox. A further £250,000 has been loaned by philanthropist Dame Vivien Duffield.
During Mr Cameron’s campaign to lead his party, Jewish figures gave his team (as opposed to the party) additional donations of more than £60,000. According to the JC’s inquiries, direct donations to “Team Cameron” in the leadership battle came from philanthropist Trevor Pears (around £20,000), Bicom chair Poju Zabludowicz (£15,000 plus £25,000 to the party), Next chief executive Simon Wolfson (£10,000 plus £50,000 to the party), former Carlton TV boss Michael Green (£10,000) and Tory deputy treasurer and key Cameron fundraiser Andrew Feldman (£10,000 through his family firm, Jayroma).
Aside from these donations from powerful Jewish figures, a ‘small but influential’ group of Jewish Conservative officials and politicians were also ‘key players’ in Cameron’s campaign for leadership, the Jewish Chronicle report goes on to mention.(4)
In the aforementioned piece,(5) Stuart Littlewood makes an observation about the extent to which Jews are over-represented in the British parliament (emphases added):
While nobody is suggesting, I hope, that Jews have no place in our law-making, it is not unreasonable to wish the number to reflect their presence in the population. Three years ago the Jewish Chronicle published a list of Jewish MPs in Britain’s Parliament, naming 24. The Jewish population in the UK at that time was – and probably still is – around 280,000 or just under 0.5 per cent. There are 650 seats in the House of Commons so, on a proportional basis, Jews could expect three seats. But with 24 they were eight times over-represented. Which meant, of course, that other groups were under-represented.
The UK’s Muslim population is about 2.4 million or nearly 4 per cent. Similarly, their quota would be 25 seats but they had only eight – a serious shortfall. If Muslims were over-represented to the same extent as Jews (i.e. eight times) they’d have 200 seats. Imagine the hullabaloo.
David Cameron appointed the UK’s first Jewish ambassador(6) to the Zionist regime, Matthew Gould.
Succeeded by David Cameron, the previous leader of the Conservative party, Michael Howard, is also Jewish,(7) as is the current leader of the UK Labour party, Ed Miliband.(8) Not bad going for a group that constitutes less than 0.5% of Britain’s population.
If the British public were to consider Cameron’s very real pursuance of Zionist policies in the context of his rise to power on the back of Jewish money, there would be a public awakening (which would no-doubt be labelled as ‘anti-Semitism’). In light of this, the decision to conceal his Jewish identity can easily be understood.
It is not democratic for a holder of high office to be put in place by the money of powerful political pressure groups. Nor is it democratic for one ethno-religious group to be grossly over-represented within the corridors of power.
If the interests of the Zionist regime and the powerful Jewish community were to conflict with those of the United Kingdom, who would David ‘I’m a Zionist‘ Cameron really represent? If the recent wars on Libya and Syria are anything to go by, this question need not be asked.

EXCLUSIVE: FBI agents to guard UK airports against jihadi fanatics

DOZENS of FBI agents are to be posted at UK ­airports amid fears that Britain’s anti-terrorism efforts are failing to keep track of jihadi fanatics.

Three US officers from a specialist FBI counter-terror unit are expected to land at Heathrow on Tuesday, with another 10 arriving within the week and dozens more over coming months.
They will monitor suspect passengers as well as ­investigate “terror hot-spots” across Britain in the wake of the beheading of American James Foley in Iraq. Last night, however, critics claimed their arrival was an admission that cuts to police and the UK Border Force had left Britain out of its depth and overwhelmed in the war on terror.
Officially, US officers who have been monitoring terrorist activity ever since the 9/11 attacks in 2001 will liaise with the Metropolitan Police’s secretive SO15 counter-terrorism command and MI5.
However, there are fears they eventually intend to conduct their own parallel investigations and recruit their own informants in UK and European jihadi circles.
Certain areas in the UK have been identified as being terrorist hot-spots and we will be particularly keen to glean further intelligence and garner sources there
US intelligence source
Last night a US intelligence source told the Sunday Express: “Certain areas in the UK have been identified as being terrorist hot-spots and we will be particularly keen to glean further intelligence and garner sources there.
“At airports we will help to monitor by cross-checking details with an international terrorist database which is updated daily.
“The team will be working closely with UK intelligence officers already based at airports but may be a little thin on manpower. Essentially we bring to the table advanced monitoring capabilities and terrorist-tracking and identification techniques which have been tried and tested.”
The move comes amid growing US concerns that Britain is not doing enough to stem the flow of jihadists travelling to join the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.
The source added: “There is a suspicion among the US intelligence community that Britain has been and still is a soft touch for jihadists. We are sending officers to assist the British authorities in collating information using the most up-to-date techniques.”
Labour’s shadow policing minister Diana Johnson said: “The questions being raised about border security are worrying but perhaps unsurprising.
“The Home Office have stretched the UK Border Agency to breaking point, so it is little wonder gaps are emerging.” Another Labour MP, Khalid Mahmood, said: “It’s a bizarre turn of affairs that they are coming here to police our streets and it says a lot about the inadequacies of our current systems.
“Our airports are undermanned and maybe American assistance in that area will be a good thing.
“Overall though, the FBI coming here is an admission by the Government that it is out of its depth in dealing with the problem.”
Tory MP Andrew Percy said: “We have failed as a nation to tackle this problem, so I am more than happy to have the FBI on the ground in this country so long as they work under the direction of the British authorities.”
Last night Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond warned: “We’re likely to be dealing with the enduring threat from Syria and Iraq for a generation.
“IS are turning a swathe of Iraq and Syria into a terrorist state as a base for attacks on the West. Unless they are stopped, sooner or later they will seek to strike us on British soil..”
The Met Police refused to comment other than to confirm it often works with US partners.
