Muslim Leaders Call For Halal Alternative to Peppa Pig

Breitbart London

Islamic leaders in Australia are urging parents to help raise funds for a company which wants to make a series of “halal cartoons” as an alternative to Peppa Pig, telling followers that Allah will reward them if they do.

The Australian National Imams Council (ANIC) posted a video to its Facebook page urging parents to donate to production company One4Kids, which makes Islamic themed children’s programmes, to fund a cartoon titled Barakah Hills, pitched as a “halal” alternative to popular pre-school show Peppa Pig.

Aiming to raise AUD$20,000 (£12,000), the company said the show’s “main objective is to show children what it is like to be a practising Muslim as well as a good citizen in their community”. The cartoon is set in a predominantly Muslim town, the BBC has reported.

One4Kids producer Subhi Alshaik told the BBC he enjoyed Peppa Pig but that “apparently there are messages in there that turn kids into brats”. More >>>

With Assad On Verge Of Historic Victory, Syrian Rebels Request A Ceasefire

by Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge

After nearly six years, Syria’s civil war started under Hillary Clinton’s watch in March 2011 during the Arab Spring protest, is finally coming to an end.

The battle for one of the most contested Syrian cities during the war, Aleppo – which was Syria’s most populous city before the war – is almost over and the “rebel forces” who live in the city eastern part, realizing they are on the verge of losing, have finally come to the negotiating table but it is too late.

Recall that as we reported last week, the Syrian army had recaptured as much as as 40% of the militant held part of the city in an accelerating attack that threatens to crush the opposition in its most important urban stronghold. As of today, that number has nearly doubled. According to the Russian Reconciliation Center which is facilitating and overseeing the Syrian civil war, government forces have liberated 15 more eastern Aleppo neighborhoods in the last 24 hours, adding that the advance has allowed the Syrian Army to evacuate 1,200 residents of the city.  The Syrian authorities now “fully control 50 neighborhoods in the eastern part of [Aleppo] that account for 70 percent of the territory that was initially controlled by the militants.” More >>>

600 ‘Underage’ Migrants Turn Out to Be Adults

from Jyllands Posten (Danish Language source)

The Danish government has confirmed the suspicions of manny opponents of its open doors immigration policy that of the suspected 800 “underage” asylum seekers they believed to be lying about their age, 600 of them were adults according to medical tests.

Staff of The Danish Immigration Service (Udlændingestyrelsen – DIS) suspected hundreds of “underage” migrants who have entered the country over the past year lied about about their age in order to get preferential treatment and fast tracking of their applications for refugee status from the Danish government.

The DIS was authorised to use medical tests to assert the real age of those suspected of lying after the government yielded to public pressure and have now admitted that at least 600, or three quarters of the child migrants, were in fact adults, according to  Jyllands-Posten

Doctors at the Institute of Forensic Medicine in Copenhagen were tasked by the DIS to find out the true age of those suspected of being adults, using X-rays of finger bones and dental imprints. The 800 tested by the institute is double that of last year, with authorities projecting that the number could increase to over 1,000 by the end of this year.

Integration Minister Inger Støjberg defended the results saying that the Danish asylum system is working properly when it is able to out migrants trying to get special benefits by lying about their age. More >>>

Millions Of Jobs Will Be Wiped Out By Machines In The Next Five Years

There is a paradigm shift coming and it is about to rewrite everything we know about economics, human labor, and government dependence.

Earlier this week Amazon launched its first Amazon Go store, which allows a customer to walk in, grab the items they want, and simply walk out. Everything is tracked utilizing RFID chips, so the second you step out of the store Amazon knows exactly what you’ve purchased and automatically charges your account:

Amazon Go is a system that marries physical stores with advanced algorithms and sensors to eliminate the need for a typical store checkout. Instead of packing all the things you need into a basket or cart and then dragged it through a tedious checkout process, you just grab whatever you need and walk out of the store.

It sounds like a shaky concept at first, but only until you see just how advanced the technology really is. When you first walk into the store, you use your smartphone to open you virtual shopping cart. As you make your way around the store, a vast system of sensor tracks where you are, what you pick up, and what you take with you. The system even knows if you pick something up and then put it back, and will only charge you for things you actually intended to buy.

Amazon’s latest move is simply the next evolution designed to make human labor obsolete.

As Mike Shedlock recently pointed out at Mish Talk, the transition to automated systems like Amazon Go, as well as technologies like self-driving cars and long-haul trucks, has been fast tracked.

We’re no longer talking decades, but rather, a few years before we start to see the direct effects on the labor market: More >>>

Daily Stirrer / Boggart Blog roundup 30 August

August 30, 2015

As I keep neglecting this blog let’s try a new idea to make sure it is kept active:

Refugee Crisis Or Existential Battle With USA for Europe
It has been clear for some years now that the USA, backed by its main NATO and EU military allies the UK and France (the FUKUS axis has been trying to provoke Russian into firing the shot that will be heard around the world and recognised as the startiung signal for World War Three.
Nothing is ever as it seems to be however, and views from middle east and far eastern journals suggest the USA is also working at destabilizing EU nations in order to force their support in its wars.

German politician calls on facebook to abolish free speech
A German politician has given the clearest indication yet that the political elites of the free world are ideologically much closer to Adolf Hitler’s National Socialists than the social liberalism they claim to support. Free speech is the basis of all liberal democracy. Heiko Maas, the German justice minister has has written to the Facebook it removes “xenophobic and racist” anti-migrant posts from its website and apps., has written to the company to demand an urgent review of its policy over hate messages.

Europe in Free Fall – The 28 member EU makes no economic sense

The omens have been clear for a long time (for those who have ears to hear and eyes to see. The ideologues who have been driving the Federal European Superstate project are blind to their own folly as ideologues always are, and also blind it seems to the unfolding social, economic and political catastrophe that is unfolding and threatens to destroy not only the european Union but its individual member states.

New EU Tax Laws Force Thousands of Businesses to Close in Just Six Months
Our editorial policy has for years been to expose the EU for the anti – business, anti – democracy European wing of the Global Government cartel. And let’s be honest, a quick browse through our Europe index will provide plenty of evidence to suppport our view. Given the and their collectivist dupes’ talent for ignoring evidence however, every hammer blow we can strike that exposes their global, totalitarian, bureauceatic dictatorship will help get the message across.
