‘Armenian genocide: Obama’s Broken Promise

What refusal to say ‘Armenian genocide’ says about Obama – CSMonitor.com.

As a presidential candidate in 2008, Barack Obama promised to be the first American president to refer to the Turkish mass killing of Armenians that began in 1915 as “genocide.”

But on this anniversary, the 100th, President Obama has once again avoided the word. In a statement released Thursday night, he referred to it only as “the first mass atrocity of the 20th century.””

Charlie Hebdo Conference Canceled

Belfast ‘shamed’ after university cancels Charlie Hebdo conference | World news | The Guardian.

An award-winning novelist has said he is ashamed of his native city because of the decision by Queen’s University Belfast to cancel an academic conference on the Charlie Hebdo massacre for security reasons.

Robert McLiam Wilson, the Paris-based author of Ripley Bogle and Eureka Street, described the cancellation of the event in the face of an unspecified security threat as “not cowardice or surrender. It is part of a long defeat in an unfought war.””

Rotherham Sex Abuse: Update

National Crime Agency lists police failings over Rotherham sex abuse | UK news | The Guardian.

Notice: The current Guardian article does not talk about the abusers only the police. What are they doing in the Pakistani community to stop the crimes before they happen?

The report, published on Thursday, found that the force did not use alternative ways to gather evidence, missed ways to protect victims, and failed to work well with the local authority to tackle offenders.

The NCA launched its inquiry in December 2014 following the release of Professor Alexis Jay’s damning report in August, which triggered a national outcry after revealing that children as young as 11 had been raped and abducted by multiple perpetrators between 1997 and 2013.”

Perpetrators 

“The majority of the perpetrators were described by victims as being Asian. The inquiry found that several staff described their nervousness talking about the race of the men “for fear of being thought racist”. Others remembered clear direction from their managers not to do so.

Councillors did not engage directly with the Pakistani community to discuss how best they could jointly address the issue, and some seemed to think it was a “one-off” problem.”

ACLU: Catholic Bashing

ACLU sues feds in bid to make Catholic groups provide abortion to illegal immigrants | Fox News.

ACLU says it’s not enough to feed, house and cloth illegal immigrants. The church must provide abortions too. Crazy or crafty? Crafty: eliminate religious competition so all welfare flows from the government. Beware monopolies.

“Let’s be clear about the ACLU’s purpose here: ending the productive and successful partnership between the Catholic Church and the federal government on the care and shelter of vulnerable populations.”

– Kevin Appleby, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops”
