(International Christian Concern) – According to lawyers at the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), 19 Armenian prisoners of war were tortured and killed by Azerbaijani servicemen. Artak Zeynalyan and Siranush Sahakyan, who are representing all Armenian captives, accused Azerbaijan of war crimes and appealed to the ECHR. The list of 19 killed includes 12 civilians and seven servicemen.
Azerbaijan also continues to degrade Armenian heritage through the demolition of religious sites. Photos and videos confirm the vandalism against Ghazanchetsots Cathedral in Shushi. Angels sitting atop pillars at the main entrance were destroyed and a fence running along the perimeter of the property has been taken down. Just a few days later, photos indicate that the domes had been removed from the church as well.
Satellite imagery also shows the destruction of an Armenian cemetery in Mets Tagher. The site was in use when Armenians evacuated in late 2020. In the same village, not too far away from the destroyed cemetery, sits Surb Amenaprkitch church. Nearby construction appears to be threatening the 175-year-old church as land next to it has been leveled and trucks remain parked in the clearing.
In one incident of justice, two Syrian mercenaries were given life sentences in Armenia for criminal charges including terrorism. The two men, Muhrab Muhammad Al-Shkheir and Yousef Alabed Alhajj, pleaded guilty to the charges that took place during the Nagorno-Karabakh war. According to the court, the Syrians underwent military training from June to September 2020 before being sent to fight. Investigators claim they were recruited by pro-Turkish militant groups to “terrorize civilians” and commit war crimes. In addition to a fixed salary of $2,000, recruiters also promised an additional $100 for every Armenian killed. Some sources report different numbers, but regardless the Turkish-hired mercenaries were given incentives to mutilate or kill Armenians. Both Azerbaijan and Turkey deny the presence of any foreign mercenaries and Azerbaijan responded to the confessions claiming fraud.
Armenians are a predominately Christian community who have suffered multiple genocides because of their combined ethnic-faith identity. The events in Nagorno-Karabakh in 2020 were reminiscent of the 1915 genocide which almost eliminated them from their native lands.

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. — The pretrial hearing in the Mercedes Carrera criminal case concerning multiple child sexual abuse charges against her and her husband — which was supposed to happen today at the Rancho Cucamonga courthouse in San Bernardino County, California — has been postponed, once again, until June 4.
Carrera and her husband Jason Whitney were arrested after a police raid of their Rancho Cucamonga home on February 1, 2019. They have been in county jail without trial since then, first without bail and later, after they had liquidated their assets and had no source of income due to their incarceration, with bail set at $2 million for each.
A pretrial hearing to determine the jury selection process, and the date of the beginning of the actual trial, has already been postponed numerous times.
The new date of June 4 — like several previous postponements — appeared online in a document filed today.
The document shows the hearing took place today with District Attorney Laura Fragoso and a Conflict Panel attorney, Geoff Newman, standing for the accused.

A video has gone viral of a white woman in Missouri who insists she isn’t racist for not wanting her children to learn critical race theory. Parents were present to protest the discussion of race in history and literature in the Rockwood School District. She simply wants the same white washed history that has been taught in the past to continue in the present.
She is receiving backlash and praise for her position concerning this theory. Her response concerning this racial discussion is what I call snowbunny in training. She is learning that our society is becoming less tolerant to positions that support and encourage white supremacy. She is learning that the old way has become old and the new way is more favorable. Like the Hedge Fund managers are learning the power of grassroots in investing, this white woman is…

Ashraf Alareed (اشرف العريض) is a pro-Palestinian activist residing in Oakville, Onatrio. Self-employed as a commercial and residential painter Alareed also serves in the position of a Media Manger at SAV Canada-Syrian Community. Alareed is an outspoken supporter of the Liberal Party of Canada.
On April 29, 2021 Ashraf Alareed posted on Facebook (originally in Arabic):
O Allah! Count their number, and slay them one by one, and spare not one of them, and make the land of resurrection and gathering (on judgment day) a graveyard for their youths and heartbreaks for their women (say: ameen)
Alareed’s prayer to Allah came after three consecutive Facebook posts (A, B, C) in which he summarized media reports and commented on the stampede at a religious festival in Israel that claimed the lives of 45 orthodox Jews.
Racism as a Misandric Aggression: Patriarchy, Phallicism, and the Extermination of Black Males as Social Order
Look closely at that photo. It’s what Columbus, Ohio, police Officer Nick Reardon was looking at a split second before he fired his pistol. The fat girl in blue jeans — 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant — had a kitchen knife in her right hand and was about to stab the woman in pink. In the parlance of cops, that’s called a “good shoot,” but the liberal media headline is not “HERO COP SAVES WOMAN FROM KNIFE ATTACKER.”
No, the media are playing the BLM “white guilt” race card here, simply because Officer Reardon is white. The fact that the woman he saved from being stabbed is black? Never mind that. It doesn’t fit the media’s preferred narrative, in which white is a synonym for bad.
Understand that I’ve spent months watching police videos on the Police Activity YouTube channel, so I’ve become sort of an amateur expert on how these kinds of incidents generally go down. As in this case, police often arrive on a scene of confusion, with only a brief description of what’s happening based on a frantic 911 call. When you watch bodycam video of incidents like this — and, as I say, what happened in the Ma’Khia Bryant case isn’t really unusual — it can be difficult to understand what you’re seeing, because it happens so fast amid confusing circumstances. But the important thing to know is, there is always a backstory.
Police do not go around shooting people at random. In most cases, the suspect who gets shot by cops has an extensive prior criminal history. Often, they are convicted felons out on parole or probation, engaged in drug dealing, driving a stolen car or illegally possessing firearms (sometimes all three at once). In other cases, the person who gets shot by cops is mentally ill, basically doing “suicide by cop.” So in terms of probability, the vast majority of people, whatever their race, are never in danger of being shot to death by police. It doesn’t happen randomly.
Even in the case of Breonna Taylor, the reason she got shot was because (a) her ex-boyfriend was a drug dealer who had been using her apartment as his mailing address, and (b) her new boyfriend had a gun and fired at the cops who raided the apartment, evidently fearing that it was Breonna’s ex-boyfriend busting down the door. It wasn’t random.
Franklin County Children Services (FCCS) released a statement saying that Bryant, 16, was a foster child who was under the care of the Franklin County Children Services. . . .
The girl’s aunt, Hazel Bryant, told reporters that her niece had been living in a foster home on the east side of Columbus, where the fatal shooting took place. According to her, several adult women had come to the foster home and started an altercation with the teenager, who had then called police, her biological father as well as her grandmother for help. Then to defend herself, Ma’Khia grabbed a knife. . . .
Her mother, Paula Bryant, told 10 WBNS, “She was a very loving, peaceful little girl. She was an honor-roll student, and Makiyah had a motherly nature about her. She promoted peace.” . . .
OK, two obvious questions:
- Why was Ma’Khia in the care of county children’s services?
- Why did these women “come to the foster home” and start a fight?
It seems difficult to reconcile the known facts with Ma’Khia’s mother’s claim that she was a peace-promoting honor student.
My guess (and it is only a guess) is that Ma’Khia being in foster care had something to do with her own behavioral problems, which in turn explains these adult women being in an altercation with her. We don’t actually know what happened or why, but whatever the story turns out to be, we can surmise that this was not a random incident. It never is.
A California woman faces a hate crime charge after police said she accused a Black delivery driver of speeding and followed him, leading to a confrontation in which she used “hateful language.”
Berkeley police said a 35-year-old woman, who hasn’t been named, was arrested April 18 after they received a report of a disturbance. The woman said a delivery driver was speeding and that she and her boyfriend decided to follow the driver, according to police.
The woman “used force” to stop the driver from leaving and “used hateful language disparaging people of color,” authorities said.
The driver, Kendall McIntosh, who is Black, told KRON4 that the woman’s boyfriend stood behind the truck to stop him from leaving and that the woman used racial slurs against him and jumped inside the vehicle, grabbing the steering wheel.
McIntosh said he was “thankful” that witnesses recorded the incident on video.
“What constantly was running through my mind was you know it could be me in handcuffs instead of her so no matter what the situation is, just protect yourself,” McIntosh said. “If you feel like you have to videotape it or anything, definitely do that because I felt like if there wasn’t a video. … she probably could’ve gotten away with saying this.
The woman was arrested for false imprisonment, battery, using offensive words and threatening a person based on their perceived characteristics, police said.
Berkeley police said the woman faces a hate crime charge because she is accused of committing “a crime against a person, group, or property motivated by the victim’s real or perceiving protected social group,” according to the news release.
CALGARY, Alberta, April 28, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — For the second time this month, a Canadian pastor who fled communist Poland told police and public health officials to leave his church, telling them he would not cooperate with “the Gestapo.”
“You can call my lawyer, okay? My lawyer takes care of this. I’m not interested to listen to any word you have to say. I do not cooperate with the Gestapo, I do not talk to the Nazis,” said Pastor Artur Pawlowski of The Cave of Adullam church located in Calgary, Alberta, this past Saturday to police and health inspectors.
“You came in your uniforms like thugs. That’s what you are: brownshirts of Adolf Hitler, [you’re] Nazi, Gestapo, communist, fascist. I do not cooperate with Nazis. Talk to my lawyer.”
islamic marriages makes non muslim men into simps and betas with no backbone
A couple got married four years after they first met without the husband ever seeing his wife’s face because of her niqaab.
Mubina Mustafa, 28, from Pickering, Ontario, and Mehdi Isa Arathoon, 27, were in the same class at university, but he was a Christian and she was a Muslim, so even helping each other with their studies was frowned upon by their strict families.
It wasn’t until he began dating someone else, that Mubina – who had never even been friends with a man who wasn’t family – realised she had feelings for her former classmate.
The couple couldn’t date unless they were going to marry, and they couldn’t marry unless he became Muslim.
So smitten Medhi took a leap of faith and converted to Islam and proposed to Mubina two months later.
It wasn’t until after the ceremony that Mehdi saw underneath the niqaab – or face veil – Mubina wears in front of everyone, apart from her husband and family.
A white married couple in South Carolina face criminal charges in a road-rage attack on an interracial couple at whom they hurled racial slurs, according to reports.
John Kingkade, 38, and his wife, Krystal, 37, were each charged with two counts of robbery and two counts of first-degree assault and battery in the April 10 incident, the State reported.
Elena Vawter and her boyfriend, Bron Cornett, 21, who is black, were cut off at a red light on Two Notch Road by the Kingkades, who were in a Mercedes C-Class.
The driver motioned for the couple to pull over in a Dollar Tree parking lot, where John began shouting racial slurs and kicked their car, police said.
When Cornett got out of his car and tried to take a picture of the Mercedes’ license plate, John allegedly assaulted him, knocking him to the ground, according to an incident report…

Patrisse Cullors is a co-founder of Blacks Lives Matter. About her background, she said in 2015: “The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia (Garza, BLM co-founder) in particular are trained organizers.” Cullors also said: “We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk.”
Cullors, the self-described “trained Marxist,” appears to be doing quite well for herself. Last year, she signed a major Hollywood production deal. Variety reported: “The co-founder of Black Lives Matter has signed her first … overall deal with Warner Bros. Television Group. Characterized as multi-year and wide-ranging, the pact will see Cullors develop and produce original programming across all platforms, including broadcast, cable and streaming.” Her first overall deal? So much for that “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs” stuff.
The value of the deal remains undisclosed. But Cullors recently purchased a $1.4 million home in Topanga Canyon, California, with a white population of 88.2% and a Black population of 0.4%, according to the 2010 census. Not exactly the ‘hood.
About Cullors new home, a celebrity real estate website writes: “A winding 15-minute drive from The Commons at Calabasas and a slightly longer and somewhat less serpentine drive from Malibu’s Getty Villa, the pint-sized compound spans about one-quarter of an acre. The property’s not-quite 2,400 square feet is divided between the … three-bedroom and two-bath main house and a separate one-bed/one-bath apartment capable of hosting guests long term with a private entry and a living room with kitchenette.” According to public records, this is just one of three homes that Cullors owns in the Los Angeles area.
Cullors may just be getting warmed up. According to the New York Post: “(Cullors) also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes. … Luxury apartments and townhouses at the beachfront Albany resort outside Nassau are priced between $5 million and $20 million, according to a local agent.”
Meanwhile, of the estimated $90 million donated to Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation in 2020, Michael Brown Sr., the father of the man killed by a Ferguson police officer, says he has received just $500 from BLM affiliates. Brown Sr. asked: “Why hasn’t my family’s foundation received any assistance from the movement? How could you leave the families who are helping the community without any funding?”
The Associated Press reported: “The foundation said it committed $21.7 million in grant funding to official and unofficial BLM chapters, as well as 30 Black-led local organizations. It ended 2020 with a balance of more than $60 million. … The foundation’s expenses were approximately $8.4 million — that includes staffing, operating and administrative costs, along with activities such as civic engagement, rapid response and crisis intervention.”
Hawk Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City — which is not affiliated with Cullors’ BLM Global Network Foundation — now calls “an independent investigation” into the finances of Cullors’ BLM. Newsome said, “If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes.”
As for Cullors’ mentor, here is what Karl Marx wrote about private property and the acquisition of wealth: “You are horrified at our intending to do away with private property. But in your existing society, private property is already done away with for nine-tenths of the population; its existence for the few is solely due to its non-existence in the hands of those nine-tenths. You reproach us, therefore, with intending to do away with a form of property, the necessary condition for whose existence is the non-existence of any property for the immense majority of society.
“In one word, you reproach us with intending to do away with your property. Precisely so: that is just what we intend.”
Apparently, Ms. Cullors, the self-described “trained Marxist,” skipped class that day.
