He Used to Call Viktor Orban an Ally. Now He Calls Him a Symbol of Fascism. – The New York Times

Mr. Ivanyi did not keep silent. In both word and deed, he repeatedly challenged the prime minister, continuing to provide services to the homeless and refugees, even giving one Afghan a room in his own home. And he often questioned Mr. Orban’s presentation of Hungary as a monoethnic country, and his claims of governing by Christian principles. “What he does is against the teachings of Christ,” Mr. Ivanyi said recently. “It is the exact opposite of what the Bible preaches about treating the poor, about justice, about responsible service.”

Milo Yiannopoulos banned from entering Australia following Christchurch shooting comments – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Yiannopoulos had described Islam as a “barbaric, alien” religious culture on social media after the terror incident, prompting the Government’s change of heart.  On Twitter, Labor MP Tony Burke praised the decision to ban Yiannopoulos. “Milo banned. Good. His overnight comments weren’t that different from how he has always behaved,” he said. “There was already enough evidence to ban him which is why the department had already recommended he be banned. “The Australian tours for the world’s hate speakers must stop.”

Abdul Aziz: The man who saved lives by running at the Christchurch gunman – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Originally from Kabul, Afghanistan, Mr Aziz said he left as a refugee when he was a boy and lived for more than 25 years in Australia before moving to New Zealand a couple of years ago. “I’ve been to a lot of countries and this is one of the beautiful ones,” he said. And, he always thought, a peaceful one as well. Mr Aziz said he did not feel fear or much of anything when facing the gunman — it was like he was on autopilot. And he believes that God, that Allah, did not think it was his time to die.

Julian Castro on Reparations: ‘Why Wouldn’t You Compensate People Who Actually Were Property?’ | 3CHICSPOLITICO

“To my mind, that may or may not be the best way to address it,” Castro said. “However, it’s interesting to me that when it comes to Medicare for all, health care, you know, the response there has been we need to write a big check, that when it comes to tuition-free or debt-free college, the answer has been we need to write a big check.” “So if the issue is compensating descendants of slaves, I don’t think the argument about writing a big check ought to be the argument you make if you’re making the argument that a big check needs to be written for a whole bunch of other stuff,” Castro continued. “If, under the Constitution, we compensate people because we take their property, why wouldn’t you compensate people who actually were property.”

“I still do not know what I was arrested for, I was only told that I am dangerous,” Jarrar said during a reception in Ramallah on Thursday afternoon. “This is what we have always said when it comes to administrative detention — that it’s arbitrary. That it’s always political. Therefore we demand to put an end to this illegal practice.”
