Democrats allowing Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitic rhetoric to be standard-bearer for the party

12-Feb-2019

Rep. Ilhan Omar sparked outrage Sunday from both Democrats and Republicans after asserting on Twitter that U.S. support for Israel is based on monetary support from Jewish groups, especially AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

It is clear that the Democrats must clean house on the emerging anti-Semitic rhetoric within the party if they will truly unite Americans of all backgrounds and faiths and not divide for political convenience.

Man Utd 0-2 Paris St-Germain: 'United's defeat was several years in making'

Thursday 00:35 GMT

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first defeat as Manchester United manager was a case of reality finally kicking in among all the fantasy - and the outcome of years of mismanagement at Old Trafford.

The resulting 2-0 defeat stands as the first blot on Solskjaer's United managerial record - 10 wins and a draw from 11 games before PSG came to town - but this was not a loss 90 minutes in the making, but one fashioned over several years.

Alarm raised over bill allowing Sisi to rule Egypt until 2034

Friday 15:27 GMT

Egypt’s president, Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, has moved one step closer to staying in power until 2034 after parliament advanced a bill that changes the constitution by extending presidential terms and allows Sisi to run for re-election beyond the current two-term limit.

In a rare criticism during a debate over the bill, one MP branded the reforms “medieval” and said they were tailored to facilitate absolute rule by Sisi, the former head of Egypt’s armed forces who took power in a coup in 2013.

Oscar-nominated songs reviewed: All the Stars, Shallow, The Place Where Lost Things Go

Saturday 10:49 GMT

This is songwriter Diane Warren’s 10th – TENTH! – attempt at an Oscar for best song, having even lost with gold-plated tear-tugger How Do I Live.

Combine a risk-taking, Pulitzer prize-winning rapper with one of the most gut-punching vocalists of recent years, chuck them into a groundbreaking blockbuster, Black Panther, and what do you get? “Meh”, basically. Sure, the beat stomps, the synths twinkle and SZA’s verse is especially good, but this is so generic, expensive-sounding and default Epic (yes there’s a string section) that it could have been Flo Rida and Pixie Lott and not much would change.

PSG and Dortmund sing it with pride as home crowds wallow in age of rage

Sunday 09:54 GMT

It would, if the class of 2050 are reading this, make a pretty good name for a retro shoe when the time comes around to pore over the current age of rage.

Both games were notable for the size the crowds, the high standard of football and the general feeling of a thrillingly well-run spectacle. The reason for dwelling on this here is that the current “terrace culture” was a sub-theme of two big Champions League matches in England this week.

Aurora shooting: failed background check allowed gunman to buy firearm

Monday 20:54 GMT

The man who shot and killed five people and wounded six at an Illinois business on Friday passed an initial background check that failed to detect a felony conviction that should have stopped him buying the gun.

Illinois lawmakers who support gun control pointed to a flaw in a 1968 law that requires residents who want to buy firearms or ammunition to get a Firearm Owner’s Identification or FOID card, a process that requires a background check but does not mandate that police ensure weapons have been removed if a red flag is raised later.

German Health Minister blocks suicide aid to terminally ill: report

Today 18:10 GMT

Germany has so far not provided any lethal drugs to terminally ill people wanting to put an end to their suffering, despite a 2017 verdict allowing such suicide assistance in exceptional cases, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

According to the Tagespiegel Health Minister Jens Spahn has played a considerable role in the rejection of applications, urging the BfArM in June last year not to allow anyone to purchase lethal drugs for the purposes of suicide.
