United Russia to Unveil ‘Straight Flag’ in Honor of Traditional Family

Russia’s ruling political party has designed a “heterosexual flag” to honor traditional family values, the Izvestia newspaper reported Wednesday.

Copies of the flag, which feature the outlines of a man and a woman holding hands with three children, were shown to Izvestia by Andrei Lisovenko, deputy head of the United Russia branch in Moscow. The flags also come printed with the Russian-language hashtag “A Real Family.”

According to Lisovenko, the flag will have its official unveiling at Moscow’s Sokolniki park later Wednesday, where hundreds of people will gather for a United Russia rally in honor of the Day of Family, Love and Fidelity, which the country celebrates annually on July 8.

United Russia’s decision to unveil a “heterosexual flag” comes after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to legalize same-sex marriage in late June, when the White House was lit up in the colors of the rainbow flag traditionally associated with the LGBT community.

“This is our response to same-sex marriage, to this mockery of the concept of the family. We have to warn against gay-fever at home and support traditional values in our country,” Lisovenko was quoted as saying by Izvestia.

Homosexuality is not illegal in Russia, but a law passed in June 2013 bans the promotion of “nontraditional” sexual relations to minors. A survey by independent pollster the Levada Center in May found 37 percent of Russians think homosexuality is a disease that needs to be cured.

After news broke of the heterosexual flag’s design, it didn’t take long for microblogging site RIP Novosti — which describes itself as “an anonymous, humorous blog” — to cast doubt on the flag’s originality.

It posted a photo to its Twitter account of a similar flag bearing the symbol of La Manif Pour Tous, an anti-gay marriage movement based in France. The latter features two rather than three children, but is otherwise almost identical to United Russia’s.

The Day of Family, Love and Fidelity is a relatively new celebration in Russia, having only been introduced in 2008. In honor of the holiday, divorces have been banned for the day in four Russian regions — Tula, Amur, Kaluga and Kurban — the Lenta.ru news site reported.

Arab Bill Gates Could Turn ‘Shariah Creep’ Into Full Trot

Islamofascism: Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a senior member of the Saudi monarchy, says he’ll pledge his $32 billion fortune to charity. In light of his past donations, this is a highly concerning development.

Alwaleed says he will model his endowment on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, only with a twist: Much of his philanthropic work will help “foster cultural understanding” of Islam in America and the West.

That means promoting the kingdom’s brand of Islam, while censoring criticism of Islam.

Published reports and books reveal Alwaleed already has pledged millions to radical Muslim Brotherhood front groups that have a secret plan to Islamize America and spread Shariah law throughout the West. These pro-jihad groups can now count on a massive and virtually endless infusion of cash to their war chests.

Alwaleed has extensive ties to Brotherhood leaders. For example, he tapped “tele-Islamist” Tariq Al-Suwaidan, widely reported to be a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait, as the channel director of his Islamic religious TV outlet Al Risala.

The network’s “Supreme Advisory Committee” has included Abdullah Omar Naseef, whom ex-federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy says is “a major Muslim Brotherhood figure” who has helped raise funds for al-Qaida.

Alwaleed made headlines after 9/11 when he donated $10 million to the World Trade Center fund only to have then-New York mayor Rudy Giuliani return the check. After presenting the money, the Saudi billionaire issued a press statement blaming the terrorist attacks on U.S. support for Israel while “our Palestinian brethren continue to be slaughtered at the hands of the Israelis.”

The next year, Alwaleed donated a whopping $27 million to a Saudi telethon for the violent Palestinian intifada against Israel, according to the Clarion Project.

Also in 2002, he gave $500,000 to the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, which federal authorities have linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

In 2005, moreover, he spent $40 million to expand Islamic studies at U.S. colleges — donating $20 million to Harvard University to create a campuswide Shariah law studies program, while pumping another $20 million into Georgetown University for a “Muslim-Christian understanding” program run by notorious Islamic apologist John Esposito.

Despite fawning press reports, Alwaleed’s charitable pledge is no cause for celebration. It’s cause for alarm. His billions will finance Islamist pressure groups who exist to force Western civilization to yield to Islamic no-go zones, Shariah courts and blasphemy laws.

If unmatched by patriotic philanthropists, the Saudi prince’s huge endowment could be a major setback for state and local efforts to push back against Islamization.

Schoolmates kill 13-yr-old Maharashtra boy for staring at girl: Cops

http://www.hindustantimes.com/mumbai/13-year-old-killed-allegedly-by-schoolmates-for-staring-at-girl/article1-1367311.aspx

A 13-year-old student was killed allegedly by his schoolmates inside the school premises in Ahmednagar district for “staring at a girl”, police said on Wednesday.

The deceased, Kiran Goraksh Sonawane, was a Class 7 student of the Nutan School at Rajapur in Sangamner tehsil.

“Kiran’s head was smashed against a bench and later, against a tree in the school. The provocation was that he used to stare at a girl,” a police official from Sangamner city police station said.

“The incident took place on June 26, police said. After the assault he was admitted to a hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries on July 1. Initially, it was a case of accidental death but subsequently an FIR was registered yesterday (Tuesday),” police said.

An FIR under section 302 (34) (murder) of the IPC has been lodged against three students whose names are known to the authorities and against “five to six” other students whose identity is yet to be ascertained, he said.

No arrests have been made in this connection.

Meanwhile, Kiran’s mother has alleged that her son was the victim of “vendetta” killing. She also denied allegation that he used to stare at girls. “Kiran used to tell me that all girls are like my sisters,” she added.

This is the second such incident in last few days in Maharashtra where a student was killed in school premises. On July 1, a Class 5 student died in Jalgaon district of north Maharashtra, apparently after a ruckus involving other students inside their school premises.

Kishore Raghu Chavan, an 11-year-old student of the Jawahar Vidyalay at Girad, was rushed to the rural hospital at Pachora but passed away later.

Asked what led to the student being rushed to the hospital, a police official had said the boy was involved in “danga masti” (ruckus) with other students.
