Latvia Picks New Candidate in Third Bid to Form Government

Latvia’s president nominated a new candidate for prime minister, a third stab at forming a government since inconclusive elections three months ago.

President Raimonds Vejonis picked Krisjanis Karins, 54, of the New Unity party, the smallest of five in a proposed coalition. The U.S.-born former economy minister and member of the European Parliament is expected to present a Cabinet for a parliamentary vote this month, Vejonis told reporters Monday in Riga. Previous attempts by candidates from bigger parties failed.


The Baltic European Union and NATO member has struggled to form a government since the elections brought three new parties to a fractured legislature and the vote’s winner, the Russia-leaning Harmony, failed to find ruling partners. If Karins is successful, he’ll face challenges from repairing the reputation of the nation’s scandal-hit financial sector to Brexit and worries about regional security.

Terror-free Slovakia completely refuses Islam and won’t allow a single mosque

Slovakia is the last EU Member State without a single mosque, TRT World reports. Previous attempts to build have been halted by politicians.

The country does not recognise Islam as a religion and only have a few thousand Muslim residents. Islam must not be taught in schools and the 5,000 Muslims, mostly European ones, who reside in the country are not officially recognised. They account for only 0.1% of the population.

In 2007, politicians changed the country’s laws so that 20,000 signatures from members were required to be recognised by the state. In 2017 they more than doubled the number of necessary signatures.


Not being officially recognised poses major difficulties for the group. Among other things, they are not allowed to have official religious leaders, conduct Muslim marriages or receive financial contributions from the State, rights which 18 other recognised religions have.


According to some of the country’s politicians, Islam is a serious threat.

“Islamisation begins with kebab and in Bratislava it has already begun. So understand what it could be like in 5-10 years,” says MP Andrej Danko.

“Every normal European, Christian or atheist fears this satanic pedophile creation of the devil,” rumbles another critical MP.

According to TRT, the situation was further complicated for the country’s Muslims in connection with the 2015 asylum wave. Slovakia then used the absence of mosques as an argument not to accept any migrants.

The TV channel also claims that Slovakia violates EU rights laws by not permitting the building of mosques.

Jewish Activist Group Fights Against Islamic Party of Ontario

The silence from Main Stream media with regards to the Islamic Party of Ontario is deafening.

Many media personalities discount this party, calling it a flash in the pan, nothing to be concerned about. Muslim personalities have also discounted this party as being “homophobic, mysogynistic”.  I am speaking specifically about Mohammad Hashim, this is the gentleman that wrote the public statement for the family of the Danforth shooter, Faisal Hussain. He discounted journalist Tarek Fatah’s concern about IPO with the following words:

Here we go again. Tarek Fateh doing his usual batshit crazy routine. I have no idea how he can say, calling him an ‘enemy of Islam’ definitively equals a death threat – as somehow that labels him an apostate and therefore makes killing him the responsibility of every Muslim out there. He’s nuts. Who cares what you are man?…
