        It is truly odd that these fundamentalist have not worked out that the conflict they support has forced all the Palestinian Christians out of the holy lands. The biggest community now resident in Sydney Australia, with another smaller, but the community I first engaged with, in Perth Australia.

        They should open their eyes, but then fundamentalist of any ilk, are a tad worrisome.

        A wiki link if anyone is interested,

      This ‘report’ is ‘not sourced’. The Times of Israel whose staff wrote the news article said it was not sourced.

      I note that Pope Francis has condemned fake news.

      I quote the Irish Times.
      “Pope Francis has compared those who spread ‘fake news’ to the serpent in the Garden of Eden.
      In his message for World Communications Day, he described ‘fake news’ as “the spreading of disinformation online or in the traditional media.”
      It was “false information based on non-existent or distorted data meant to deceive and manipulate the reader. Spreading fake news can serve to advance specific goals, influence political decisions, and serve economic interests.”
      Its effectiveness lay in “its ability to mimic real news, to seem plausible,” he said, and how it “grasps people’s attention by appealing to stereotypes and common social prejudices, and exploiting instantaneous emotions like anxiety, contempt, anger and frustration.”

    Creepy AF

    Biologists in Shanghai, China, have created the first primates cloned with a technique similar to the one used to clone Dolly the sheep and nearly two dozen other species. The method has failed to produce live primates until now.

    Researchers hope to use this revised technique to develop populations of genetically identical primates to provide improved animal models of human disorders, such as cancer. The technology, described in Cell1 on 24 January, could also be combined with gene-editing tools such as CRISPR–Cas9 to create genetically engineered primate-brain models of human disorders, including Parkinson’s disease.

      That shit makes me hope the whole fucking thing collapses as soon as possible.

    • Exkiwiforces 2.2

      You think that’s creepy, wait until Artificial Intelligence starts creeping into Armed/ Unarmed UAV’s. We are not that far away from it either, some are saying within the next 3-5yrs and from a legal definition POV they will finally become Drones, but from a ethical POV it bloody scary and damn right bloody dangerous as well.

    Trevor Noah I’ve always loved as a stand up – on the daily show not so much – but this 1:29 sec is pure gold.

  3. eco maori 4

    I tryed to leave early to mow my lawns in Pitau Mount Maunganui Tauranga but know the mokos are in town lol. On my way to work the sandflys had 3 cars and a truck on there game of slowdown my trip to work the sandflys play this hand all the time .
    I get to Pitau road and mow a couple of lawns its 10 am and I stopped for a moments rest and I notice It was rather quite for a street that close to Maunganui .I new it was the ECO MAORI effect so I decided to let EVERYONE with in ear shot hear eco maori MANA and let out a really loud holler of HE that would have sent shivers up the spines of everyone as it went even quieter .I can see the Cruse liners ships clear as day from Pitau road . Then I though about the significance of Pitau road to Eco Maori .

    Well here is a link to the meaning of PITAU you can work it out. Ka kite ano

    I say to my Maori cultured PEOPLE kia kaha and be proud of your Te puna
    And yourselves Tino pai
