Arab-conquered lands are shown in green. 
Israel is a small sliver in red.

The following article from EOZ is based on the results of a National Geographic DNA study of Middle East populations. They have to be taken with some skepticism for a variety of reasons, one of them being the unscientific collection of data.  People were invited to voluntarily submit their DNA.   
What is key to understand is that Muslim Arabs invaded and conquered the Middle East in the seventh century.  Rape, slavery, and wives taken from forcibly converted populations added to the DNA mix.   The same scenario afflicted Africa, much of the rest of Asia, and even parts of Europe, as Arabs conquered new lands.

DONALD TRUMP'S REVOLUTION - VIDEO and transcript of speech where he makes it clear it was a victory of the people, not of the GOP establishment - His populism inspires similar movements in Europe and other parts of the world - PHOTOS of the Inauguration

The message is clear - Trump pledges to put America first in brutally uncompromising first speech as POTUS 45 in full frontal assault on elites at home and with a warning for rivals abroad (UK Daily Mail)

Many of us had reservations about candidate Donald Trump's qualifications for the presidency. However, he managed to evolve as a candidate and a person and, most importantly, he sharpened his own political philosophy to the point of launching a brand new revolutionary political movement that is now inspiring people all over the western world.

We underestimated this tycoon not afraid to offend people with his outrageous comments.  
But it was not his comments or his behavior with women that were the greatest problem. His sins were not disqualifying.

The Clintons, Obama, and other politicians have a much darker personal and political record which has been hidden by the mainstream media for decades. Just go to alternative media and you will find plenty of shocking material.
Indeed it says a lot about US politics that people like  Obama, and particularly the Clintons, rose to the presidency and other top posts of public service in spite of their record.  The corrupt mainstream media has been a willing and full accomplice. 

What was disturbing about Trump was his apparent carelessness in making enemies along the way. This character flaw came to haunt him during the campaign, and will continue to do so as his adversaries recruit people with grudges to continue to smear his reputation with the hope of eventually impeaching him.

Trump's Inaugural Speech - A shock to the US political establishment
President Trump's inaugural address on Friday focused on the populist messages that dominated the second half of his campaign
His speech is historical. It is the blueprint for a second American Revolution. His victory wrests power away from the Democrat and Republican corrupt political elite, and returns it to the American people.

While other new presidents would have celebrated their party's victory, Donald Trump's speech ignored the GOP - the party that has fought Trump every step of the way - and made it perfectly clear that the victory belonged to the American people, with him just the messenger.

What he implied was that if Democrats or Republicans obstruct his agenda and thwart the will of the people, they will have to answer to them.

TRANSCRIPT of President Donald J. Trump's Inaugural Address, January 20, 2017
Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans, and people of the world: thank you.

We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people.

Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come.

We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.

Sometimes political causes are pushed by individuals with a hidden agenda, and then packaged and sold for popular consumption with labels such as 'justice', 'peace', 'freedom', 'democracy', and so on.  But just like the failed Arab Spring, those labels are nothing but false advertising for a very toxic and lethal product.
Take the notion of creating a Palestinian state.  It is based on several falsehoods.  Three examples:
(1)  Are Jews the real occupiers in Israel? 
  • In fact Israel is Jewish, and has been so for thousands of years, while Arabs arrived as invaders in the 7th century. 
  • In antiquity there were Jewish kingdoms on that same land, and Jews continued to live there in spite of the Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Ottoman, and British occupations.   When Israel liberated its Biblical heartland in 1967, it was simply liberating it from Muslim occupation.   
(2)  Would the creation of another Arab state bring peace between Muslims and Jews?
  • An honest look at the map will reveal that there is not a single Muslim country that is living in peace today, unless - like Iran, Saudi Arabia, and all the rest - a tyrannical and bloody despot keeps tight control over the population.
  • Furthermore, all countries with a Muslim minority are in turmoil, with Muslims resorting to violence and terror to advance their hegemonic agenda.
  • Africa and Asia used to have their own indigenous religions.  The Middle East used to be Christian.  Islamic Holy War changed all that, and today Islam controls vast swaths of land in those continents. 
  • Israel gave up the Sinai and Gaza for peace, but both territories are now in the hands of jihadis.  Israel was left with no land and no peace.
(3)  Are settlements an obstacle for peace?
  • The sad truth is that Muslims have been mass slaughtering Jews since the 7th century, long before Israel's independence in 1948, long before Arabs could accuse Jews of occupation, long before Arabs rebranded themselves as "Palestinians".  Killing is what Muslims do.  They slaughter the infidel.

All those countries in green are Muslim occupied, conquered by jihad centuries ago, except for Saudi Arabia, which is where Islam originates from.  Israel is that tiny sliver of land in red.  Muslims want it too.
Almost forgotten historical facts about Israel and the Palestinians in a 15 minute-video 
By Professor Francisco Gil-White

The following article by Dr. Martin Sherman, a scholar and expert on the matter.  It shows in very clear and practical terms and images how a sovereign Muslim state on Jewish land would mean not only chaos for the entire region, but it would result in the end of Israel. 
Israelis may have nukes, but their defense capabilities are extremely limited when dealing with an enemy that operates just meters away among a civilian population, launching rockets, digging terror tunnels, infiltrating the regular population to commit acts of terror.  
Furthermore, Israel would not be just dealing with the Islamic State of Palestine, but with its allies as well:  a nuclear Iran, other Arab countries, maybe even Russia.  The question is obvious:  why is the world so keen to turn a relatively simple situation into one that could be catastrophic?  Not because the world wants peace.  What it wants is the end of Israel.

By Dr. Martin Sherman 


If a Palestinian state is established, it will be armed to the teeth. Within it there will be bases of the most  extreme terrorist forces, equipped with anti-tank and anti-aircraft shoulder-launched rockets, which will endanger not only random passers-by, but every airplane and helicopter taking off in the  skies of Israel and every vehicle traveling along the major traffic routes in the coastal plain…
[T]he frontiers  of the Palestinian state will constitute an excellent staging point for mobile forces to mount attacks on  infrastructure installations vital for Israel’s existence, to impede the freedom of action of the Israeli  air-force in the skies over Israel, and to cause bloodshed among the population…in areas adjacent to the  frontier-line… (Shimon Peres, “Tomorrow is Now” (Keter publishers),  pp. 232, 255)
…Israel, small and exposed, will neither be able to exist nor to prosper if its urban centers, its vulnerable airport and its narrow winding roads, are shelled.  This is the fundamental difference between them and us, this is the terrible danger involved in the establishment of a third independent sovereign state between us and the Jordan River. – (Amnon Rubinstein, ‘The Pitfall of a Third State’, Haaretz, Aug 8, 1976)
Dr Martin Sherman
These two citations encapsulate, with chilling accuracy, the deadly dangers to which Israel would be exposed if a Palestinian state were to be established on the commanding hills overlooking the country’s heavily populated coastal plain, in which about 80% of the country’s civilian population and commercial activity, are located.
The recent Paris conference was designed to foist a two-state reality on Israel, draws closer, it is vital that the public, both in Israel and abroad, understand just how precarious Israel’s situation is liable to be if such a perilous prescription be adopted.
These dire dangers are graphically conveyed by the following series of photographs taken from sites inside the territory designated for any future Palestinian state. They demonstrate dramatically how vulnerable and exposed Israel would appear through the binoculars of a Palestinian “intelligence officer” (a.k.a. terrorist).
Greater Tel Aviv sky-line – as seen from “Palestine”: 
Azrieli Towers Complex
The clearly visible Azrieli Towers complex, an iconic feature of the central Tel Aviv skyline, houses a three-story shopping mall and recreation area, a thirteen-floor luxury hotel, and numerous prestigious commercial companies, including many of the country’s leading law firms.  And, oh yes, it is adjacent to the compound (known as “Camp Rabin”, named after the late Yitzhak Rabin) that comprises Israel’s Defense Ministry and the headquarters of the IDF General Staff…

THE CAMPUS FASCIST WAR ON FREE SPEECH, the leftist alliance with Islam, and its collaboration with capitalists to implement the globalist agenda of opening borders to mass migration and ending nation states' sovereignty

The Soviet regime dictated harsh rules and established censorship. However people remained normal human beings. They laughed at authorities, composed jokes about Brezhnev, made satirical films in spite of the censorship, and learned to read newspapers between the lines. This primarily referred to intellectuals.  Western cultural totalitarianism succeeded in doing much more. It turned people into sterile zombies, brainwashed them, perverted the minds of men and women, and subdued intellectuals that have responsibility for the future of their people.  (Alexander Maistrovoy)
This post includes a column by former Soviet citizen Alex Maistrovoy, and one by Daniel Greenfield.  They both call attention to alarming trends in western society to muzzle free speech, and to dismantle basic notions of morality and human rights.  Universities are now at the forefront of these trends.
All our lives we have perceived political differences along a left-right divide.  We put liberals, anarchists, progressives, socialists, and Communists on the left, and freedom-loving people and conservatives on the right.  If you happen to support the left, you could add racists, capitalists, and fascists on the right, 
That was a convenient formula to simplify our world view.  But this divide has been profoundly deceptive.  The truth is that there was always a blending of the extremes, and a common ground in the middle.  One salient example is the case of China, where Communism, capitalism, and plain tyranny combine in a single system ruling over almost one and a half billion people.
While the left purports to uphold ideals of democracy, equality, compassion, justice, and so on - today it has wholeheartedly allied itself with the most cruel and repressive ideology in the world:  Islam. 
Leftists denounce western nations' crimes, but are silent about the 270 million non-Muslims killed by Islam 's holy wars since the 7th century, with the victims being mostly Hindu and African.  Details here:
This leftist alliance with tyrannical regimes is nothing new.  For decades the left allied itself with the Soviet regime, although it was engaged in atrocious oppression, persecution and genocide. 
Following the Soviet example, the left now supports Muslim Palestinian terrorists, while waging a vicious propaganda war against the more democratic and tolerant Israel.  The left also agitates for increased Muslim migration into the west, in spite of nefarious consequences for the general population, as it is very clear from the European experience.  
The hypocrisy of the left is dramatically exposed in their blaming capitalism alone for depredations against the environment, while they turn a blind eye to the much worse effects of Communism. 
The Soviet regime left a trail of environmental disasters in its wake, and China is to this day engaged in the industrial poisoning of air, water, and land.  We see recurrent images of crowds wearing surgical masks wading through thick clouds of poisonous smog in Chinese cities where air pollution is completely out of control.
The  conservative brand has been seriously fraying, as left and right are in cahoots in western parliaments for the promotion of the same agenda:  increased Muslim immigration, greater restrictions of basic human rights, and the expansion of globalism through trade agreements and elimination of national borders. 
In Europe left and right are behind Angela Merkel's replacement of the native European population with millions of imported migrants from the Middle East and Africa. 
In the United States the Republican establishment, or RINOS (Republicans In Name Only), oppose Donald Trump's plan to curtail immigration from Muslim countries and from south of the border.  These powerful Republican politicians have worked hand in hand with Democrats in eroding immigration laws and the security of the country.
So it is time to take a fresh look at politics and ideologies, and see beyond  political parties' self-identification and slogans, in order to expose their true agendas.

After centuries of fighting each other, the two apparent opposites have finally and openly come together to promote common goals.
They include:
-  the weakening and eventual disappearance of nation states for the formation of multinational blocks that can be more easily controlled (such as the European Union),
-  the active replacement of European civilization and races with the imported values from backward nations under the cover of 'diversity',  and
-  the government-imposed suppression of free speech under the rubric of 'political correctness' and anti-racism.  While the globalists' intolerant allies enjoy official protection, their victims are not only sacrificed but demonized as well. 
Those opposing the globalist agenda have been characterized as populist, racists, fascists, and other epithets that demonize them to the point where calls for their assassination have become mainstream and well tolerated by social media giants such as Facebook and Twitter.
I have posted a column by author Alexander Maistrovoy, a former citizen of the Soviet Union now living in the west.  He knows first hand what is like to endure tyranny, fear, self-censorship, and the constant threat of arrest.  But he finds the current cultural tyranny in the US and Europe much worse for society than the Soviet political dictatorship.  
I have also posted one by columnist Daniel Greenfield, who exposes the degree of censorship being imposed on US university students.  Institutions that used to allow the free flow of ideas now are at the forefront of censorship and mind control. 
But before you read those interesting columns, watch this video where average New Yorkers express their full support for the notion that living under US martial law is better than allowing Trump to become president. 
This informal poll of people passing by Times Square shows how uninformed and vulnerable to globalists' emotional manipulations they are.  The Orwellian Trump-Bad/Hillary-Good slogan was swallowed whole by millions of even university-educated citizens.

Comedy of Terrors - Western Progressive Thinking Against Nature and Man     

Want to see Anti-Utopia? Look at the stand of mind of the Western establishment.
By Alexander Maistrovoy
Author of recently published “Agony of Hercules
 or a Farewell to  Democracy" (Notes of a Stranger)

After Trump’s  win, a huge part of enlightened America was plunged into mourning. Students were crying, teachers canceled lectures to calm them down, a “hotline” started working to help desperate people. 

In the USSR such mass hysteria happened only after Stalin’s death, when people cried thinking that it was the end of the world.  What brought American students to such despair? They are unlikely to be able to explain it, but it’s a very dangerous syndrome of mass insanity.

It’s a symptom that the cultural totalitarianism of the West is firstly far more effective than the Soviet political totalitarianism and secondly – it is much more deadly and poisonous. It has suppressed the will, consciousness and emotions of people – what Soviet party members didn’t achieve.

Smile with more political cartoons on the eve of the Inauguration

VIDEO - STUNNING EXPOSE OF HOW ANGELA MERKEL BREAKS GERMAN LAW WITH HER OPEN BORDERS POLICY - Former CDU member Thorsten Schulte says no new law was passed authorizing the non-enforcement of immigration laws - Her political partners know this but are silent. WHY?

© Unauthorized duplication of this blog's material is prohibited.   Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full credit and link is given to Otters and Science News Blogspot.  Link to this post: - Thank you for visiting my blog.
The following Video is a must.  A German government insider, a member of the CDU for 26 years, exposes how Angela Merkel overrode all opposition within her coalition to impose her personal agenda of flooding Germany - and Europe - with millions of Muslim migrants.  
Thorsten Schulte is a German economist and financial expert who runs a website known as Silberjunge (Silverboy).
Mr. Schulte tells how Merkel plans to implement family reunification for migrants AFTER the September 2017 election. 
We can safely assume that for every migrant already in Germany, there will be at least four or more family members arriving in Germany in 2018 - probably some of them elderly, people who will need government health care and financial support.
This migration wave comes at a time when automation is leaving millions of Germans with no work prospects.  Merkel's plan just does not make any economic or demographic sense. 
He denounces the Obama administration for funding and arming terrorists in Syria, a situation that contributed to the migrant wave into Europe. 
Being against the Muslim migrant invasion of Europe is not motivated by racism or selfishness.  He explains how money now spent on benefits for migrants in Europe would go much farther if it was spent helping the needy in the Middle East and Africa.
Others have argued the same thing.  If the migrants have something valuable to contribute to the EU economy, Europe is poaching the best people.  If they are illiterate, physically or mentally ill, or have other problems that prevent them from finding work, then this open borders policy goes contrary to the interests of Europe. 
  • OTTERS AND SCIENCE NEWS is not particularly sorry for what is happening to Germany, considering that Germans never felt any genuine guilt for the Holocaust.  They lamented losing the war, that's all.
  • Thousands of Nazi mass murderers - members of Einsatzgruppen who actually killed Jewish men, women and babies - went unpunished, with many of them being hired by the government after the war. 
  • Germany paid reparations to some of the victims, but ever since Germans have waged their own proxy war against the Jews by generously funding and morally supporting the same genocidal Arabs who intend to destroy Israel in stages, and who perpetrate acts of terror almost every day. 
  • Tiny Israel is swarming with hundreds of pro-Arab NGO workers funded by German taxpayers, whose duty is actually subverting Israeli law, riling up the Arabs, and demonizing the country. 
  • Arabs tried to destroy Israel militarily with a coalition of powerful armies in 1948, 1967 and 1973, and they failed.  Their goal was the complete annihilation of Israeli Jews.  Germany, with its support for the Palestinian genocidal cause, is fully complicit with it.   
  • So, although not sorry for Germany's and Europe's fate, the prospect of an Islamic Europe is extremely undesirable. 
GATES OF VIENNA:  According to website Silberjunge, all the politicians in Berlin are well aware of the facts he presents in his video, but are afraid to discuss them in public. His presentation is an appeal to them to break the wall of silence and expose the chancellor’s manifold derelictions of duty in such a way that ordinary German citizens can see them.

 If the German people ever become aware of the lawless outrages that have been perpetrated against them — and that’s a big “if” — it may cause such a widespread popular revulsion that the current politically correct/multicultural establishment will be overthrown.
The Gates of Vienna website provides a transcript of Mr Schulte's presentation, which you can see further on this page.

James O’Keefe Strikes Again - Undercover Video Reveals Radical Leftists Plotting Potential Terrorist Acts at Inauguration
James O'Keefe's organization has published shocking undercover videos in the past with Democrat operatives saying how they routinely facilitate voting fraud.

James O'Keefe
Project Veritas
GATEWAY PUNDIT - Project Veritas has dropped another undercover video bombshell. This time they are exposing radical leftist group, D.C. Anti-Fascist Coalition. They were planning a potential terrorist act which included setting off butyric acid stink bombs and fire alarm sprinklers at a Trump inaugural party.

According to Project Veritas, shortly after the election they received many tips that radical groups were planning to derail President-elect Trump’s inaugural events. Various groups gathered together under the #DisruptJ20 umbrella. This particular meeting was with three guys from the group, D.C. Anti-Fascist Coalition.
The three men in the video are: Colin Dunn, Luke Kuhn and Scott Green.
Via Project Veritas
Luke Kuhn: “Yeah, if you had…a pint of butyric acid, I don’t care how big the building is, its closing.”
Scott Green: “And this stuff is very efficient, it’s very very smelly, lasts a long time and a little goes a long way.”
Colin Dunn: “I’m trying to think through how to get all the sprinklers to go off at once. There’s usually a piece of like fusiable metal or a piece of glass with liquid in it that will blow.”
Luke Kuhn: “The message has to be, we do not recognize the city government either. If you try to close us down we will look for your house, we will burn it. We will physically fight the police if they try to steal one of our places. We will go to war and you will lose.”

TRAVEL ALERT - EUROPE A HOT SPOT FOR TERROR - No longer safe for tourists - Germany, Sweden, surrender to Islam, and France deals with rising Muslim terror threats by organizing conference to force the partition of Israel to create the terror state of Palestine on Biblical Jewish land

© Unauthorized duplication of this blog's material is prohibited.   Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full credit and link is given to Otters and Science News Blogspot.  Link to this post: - Thank you for visiting my blog.
Paris, like the rest of France, continues to be under martial law, as one terror attack follows another.  Instead of tackling this situation, France turns its anger on the Jews, by organizing an international conference to force another partition of Israel for the creation of the terror state of Palestine.
Are you planning a holiday in Europe this summer?   After the horrors of World War II Europe seemed to have set a new course to attract tourists, by rebranding itself as a fairy tale theme park, and a place to engage in romantic adventures. 
And who could resist those images of beautiful people, enchanting castles, mountains, lakes, architectural marvels, and so many historical cities?  So tourism became a large portion of European income. 
Amsterdam.  Today violent Moroccan migrant youths are making life impossible for the Dutch and visitors as well.
However, Europe decided at some point to cozy up to Muslim terrorists.  First, it was the Palestinians.  Do you remember their attack on civilians, the hijacking of airplanes, and other violent practices specifically aimed at making a political point?  At the Munich Olympics of 1972 Palestinian terrorists kidnapped, mutilated, tortured, and murdered eleven members of the Israeli Olympic team. 
Israeli PM advises French president
None of those crimes deterred European political leaders from pouring enormous amounts of taxpayers' money into the pockets of genocidal Palestinian organizations such as the PLO and the Palestinian Authority, and of bullying Israel into make never-ending concessions to the Arabs. 
France is currently sponsoring an international conference intended to force Israel to give Biblical Jerusalem and a large portion of its territory to the descendants of Muslims who first invaded Israel in the seventh century, and a country of their own to genocidal terrorists.
But call it karma, or what goes around comes around, or simply divine justice, as Europeans are now having a taste of what it's like to live in permanent fear of terror, and of being targeted for rape and murder by Muslim Jihadists. 
Just as they are trying to force Israel to give up its Biblical heartland, Europe itself is losing land and sovereignty to European citizens and migrants.
According to current demographic trends, Europe will be Muslim in maybe one more generation.  Much sooner for some cities.  Now, how is that for historical irony?
Europe, the former theme park of fantasy and beauty, has now been colonized by millions of Muslims who engage in crime, violence, and terror.  
Towns and cities are developing an ever expanding network of crime-ridden Muslim areas, or no-go zones, where neither police nor kafirs (meaning unbelievers) can enter.  If they do, they may not come out in one piece.  German crime syndicates are now in the hands of Arabs. 
Sharia patrols (photo of Wuppertal, Germany sharia enforcers) have been legalized, or are at least tolerated, by some European authorities, such as those in the UK and Germany.  They roam the streets harassing and threatening Europeans for violating Sharia law by drinking alcohol or, in the case of women, by wearing skimpy dresses. 
Jihadi organizations operate freely out of the same areas that used to cater to tourists.   That is not all.  Women and children of both sexes have become the target of rape and even murder by Muslim attackers.  There is nothing less than an epidemic of sexual assaults in public places such as festivals, shopping areas, and such. 

MERKEL'S SHAME - Map showing locations of Muslim rapes of women and children in Germany in 2016.  ----- 2,125 people were sexually assaulted, 199 were raped and and 380 were molested in swimming pools in 2016. ----  There were also 319 murders and attempted murders committed by foreign nationals and migrants in 2016, 14 of which were committed against children. ---- Migrants were responsible for 59 terror offences in Germany in 2016, and 112 incidents of arson.
The following article is by the UK Express.  The day has come when even the most mainstream European media are now admitting that they have a serious problem of safety and security in their countries.   Its message is BE WARNED - Europe is now a hot spot for Islamic terror.  
Although the article tries to make a distinction between the most dangerous destinations and those with lower level of danger, the truth is that jihadists choose their targets based on their level of vigilance.  If a place is considered somewhat safe, that's where it will be easier to perpetrate the next attack.  

    safe holiday destinations summer 2017 europe

THE EXPRESS - Recent terror activity that’s swept the continent has left holidaymakers questioning which spots are safe.  A recent study has revealed there was a big fall in bookings to resorts near troubled regions like the Mediterranean last year, with a surge in people taking holidays in south-east Asia and the Caribbean instead.


After a string of devastating terror attacks in 2015 and 2016, France has been put on a high terror alert.  The FCO (UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office) warns: “Due to ongoing threats to France by Islamist terrorist groups, and recent French military intervention against ISIS, the French government has warned the public to be especially vigilant and has reinforced its security measures.”  The French government has launched a free smartphone app called SAIP to alert users about possible incidents.
