An ISIS suicide bomber infiltrated a crowd of people near the Karte Sakhi shrine in the Afghan capital city of Kabul, detonating among a group of teenagers, and killing dozens.

The most recent figures are 32 killed and over 50 wounded, but the tolls are still rising.

The shrine was crowded because of Nowruz, the Persian new year holiday, during which large numbers of people in Kabul go to the shrine.

ISIS said the attack was targeting Afghanistan’s Shi’ite minority, as many of their attacks in Kabul do. ... [Antiwar.com - 21/3/18]



Cate "bewildering" Blanchett and the banality of evil.



Omid Masoumali [Guardian - 3/5/16]



@Aussies4Refugees [14/3/18]: Cate Blanchett was appointed Goodwill Ambassador just days after a refugee self immolated when a UN official told him he'd be imprisoned in Australia's concentration camp on #Nauru for another 10 years. ...



@Aussie4Refugees [18/3/18]:  Now UNHCR-IOM-Cate Blanchett want you to give them money to help maintain Rohingya immiseration in Bangladesh, and/or their forced return to certain death in Myanmar, so convention signatories like Australia don't have to meet their protection obligations



Why is nobody following the money Europe spends in Greece? [Sea-Watch.org - 12/11/17]:


... What do you mean, the UNHCR does not provide people with basic needs?

Eric: I have so many stories to tell: Last winter, we had people in FlipFlops and shorts. One guy had a pink pair of tights, trying to keep warm.

And then you speak to Red Cross or UNHCR and they say: "They don’t want clothes". And you think: How is it they don’t want clothes? It‘s minus 5 degrees, it is freezing cold.

And when I offer them clothes, they come snatch it out of my hands. What’s the reality?

Philippa: One women who arrived in July lost her shoes on the way. She got to Moria, where the paths are full of gravel stone.

So she goes to the 'Eurorelief' facility and says that she has no shoes.

And they give her a piece of paper saying her clothing appointment is on the 19th of August – and that she should bring her medical papers.

Why do you have to show your medical papers to get a pair of shoes? This is supposed to be an aid organisation.

Why do they want access to your personal data to provide clothes?

Eric: We got a pair of shoes for her. But this is not the point. In winter, people had to wait for one month to get a blanket.

The actions of UNHCR and Red Cross are deliberate actions.

They are abusing refugees deliberately to stop others coming by boat.

Philippa: These are criminals. And no one is investigating. No one uncovers their criminality.

I mean: Who is following the money Europe spends on the so-called refugee crisis? ...
