Immigration is good for us this just proves it

“Why don’t you Germans like cricket?”
The question has apparently been asked by many an incredulous refugee arriving in Germany and formed the headline in a recent article by Spiegel Online (in German).
Afghan and Pakistani refugees in Germany seek asylum and… cricket
Four-times world champions at football, some in Germany are now questioning the country’s potential at that most English of sports – cricket – thanks to its popularity among the ever-growing number of migrants from Afghanistan and Pakistan in particular.
Of nearly half a million people who claimed asylum in Germany last year, more than 40,000 came from these two countries – with many reportedly asking “where can I play?”
Of 18 players training at the THCC cricket club in Hamburg, 12 are Afghans. Wahid does not understand much German or English – but when in to bat, gets the message when his coach shouts “you’re out!”
The 23-year-old soldier tells Spiegel that he fled his native country over a year ago because of “difficulties with the Taliban”. In Afghanistan, he used to play cricket every Friday, which he says “made me happy”, even though he did not completely understand the rules.
In Germany too, the game has provided a welcome diversion from the challenges of daily life as a refugee. News that a cricket academy existed – and was open to all – spread quickly among the Afghan community.
The German Cricket Federation (DCB) says it has been flooded with pleas for help with setting up clubs and providing equipment.
The DCB’s chief executive officer, Brian Mantle, says the federation – which he runs with one assistant from the western town of Essen – has been getting up to five enquiries a day.
“Often it’s from social workers, who had never even heard of cricket before groups of refugees from Afghanistan and Pakistan started asking where they could play it,”.

UK Lord Justice wanted age of consent lowered to the age of 4

Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the QueenHe was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIEAt the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just fourI clashed with Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) global leaders at the Wales conference in Swansea in 1977. Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Jews in Israel call for genocide of Palestinians in a massive rally ignored by the media

The West’s media—under orders to censor any news of Jewish supremacism—has refused to publicise this week’s massive hate rally attended by thousands of Jews in Tel Aviv which called for all Arabs to be killed. The Western media’s blackout is in marked contrast to their blanket coverage of the tiniest example of what it calls “white racism.” The Tel Aviv rally—organized to support an Israeli soldier who murdered a wounded Palestinian by shooting him in the head as the victim lay on his back—was marked by chants and banners calling for mass murder. The rally took place on Tuesday evening, April 19, in Tel Aviv’s Yitzhak Rabin Square, and the many thousands of Jews in the crowd were, according to reports in the Israeli media, baying for blood.
One Jewish reporter, Dan Cohen, tweeted that many in the crowd chanted, “Death to Arabs,” a frequently heard rallying cry at anti-Palestinian demonstrations. Ahmed Tibi, a Palestinian lawmaker in Israel’s parliament, posted an image of a sign displayed …

The elite's use young children's blood to live longer and so do I says Paypal Billionaire

Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel said that he believes transfusions of blood from young people can reverse his ageing process and allow him to live a vastly extended lifespan.

In an interview with’s Jeff Bercovici, Thiel said that the practice — known as parabiosis — is the closest modern science has come to creating an anti-aging panacea.

Thiel — a hedge funder who acted as a delegate for Donald Trump and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention — is reportedly obsessed with defying death and extending the human lifespan. He has injected funds into startups that are experimenting with ways to forestall the body’s inevitable decline and death.

“I’m looking into parabiosis stuff,” Thiel told Bercovici, “where they [injected] the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect. … I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely underexplored.”

Parabiosis experiments began in the 1950s with crude exercises in which rats …
