Elton John calls "Israel" Palestine and tells Palestinians "You are not alone"

You may have heard about Banksy's new hotel in Bethlehem, where every room has a view of the West Bank barrier. But you may not have heard about Elton John's recent appearance.
The singer beamed into the opening ceremony ("there wasn't any room at the inn," he joked) and delivered a message of solidarity to those gathered there.




"It's my great pleasure to be playing in Palestine this evening. Please know that you are not alone. You are not forgotten."


Elton John played a set over the video stream, including 'I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues' and said he hoped other artists would do the same.

Israel the haven for international sex offenders.

A years-long delay in the extradition of an ultra-Orthodox educator, who fled to Israel from Australia after being accused of abusing her female students, has child protection advocates worried that Israel has become a haven for international sex offenders.


Malka Leifer, a dual Israeli-Australian citizen who from 2003 to 2008 served as principal of the Adass Israel Girls School in Melbourne, was accused of sexual abuse eight years ago. 

Only hours after the first accusations came to light, Leifer reportedly received funds and logistical help from members of her insular ultra-Orthodox community in Melbourne, which enabled her to fly to Israel in the dead of night along with her husband and five children.


Miriam Friedman, the director of Magen, an NGO which defends children at risk of sexual abuse in religious towns in Israel, said that alleged sex offenders from the international Jewish community have for years been taking advantage of Israel’s reputation for lax extradition practices.

Proving the Earth is NOT flat

It's sad that we even have to have this conversation in 2017

Theresa May's government pushing to make Paedophilia "LESS CRIMINAL"

Sex offenders including paedophiles should be allowed to adopt, Theresa May told as TOP POLICE Chief say's "Do not jail all paedophiles"


Paedophiles who view indecent images but go no further should not be jailed but rehabilitated, a leading child protection police officer has said.
Police forces "cannot cope" with the "huge" rise in reports, Chief Constable Simon Bailey, of the National Police Chiefs' Council, told the BBC.

Chief Constable Bailey, the head of Operation Hydrant, which is investigating multiple allegations of historic sexual abuse across the UK, said he knew his view would cause nervousness and draw headlines.


But he said the numbers of reports of abuse were at: "huge proportions" - an NSPCC study in late 2016 used figures which suggested the number of individuals looking at such images could exceed half a million.

Helen Reece, a reader in law at the London School of Economics, called on Theresa May, the Home Secretary, to rel…

Corbyn and McDonell honestly publish Tax Returns, Guess which two refused ...

... Only Theresa May the unelected Prime Minister and Philip Hammond

What do they have to hide? Tax Havens possibly? Or maybe something even worse?

Theresa May has refused to publish her tax returns, following the publication of those by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Former PM David Cameron did publish his tax returns as PM. However, a spokesperson for the current prime minister said there was no "long-standing convention" for May to do the same.

Asked whether the public would ever see a tax return from the PM, the PM's spokesperson replied:


"No. There are no further plans to do so."

The chancellor has also refused to publish his tax return. 



Philip Hammond told Andrew Marr on Sunday that "I have no intention" of publishing them.

Hammond was accused in 2014 of avoiding tax on a buy-to-let property by gifting his share of it to his wife.


The row follows the publication of Jeremy Corbyn's tax return at the weekend. The release revealed that the Labour leader …
