Remembrance Day Ceremony, November 11th, 2019



The Battle of Hamel, July 4, 1918


Today, millions across the world will pause to remember those who lost their lives in the Great War, World War I. Many people do this each year, but this year the moment will be of even greater significance, as it will mark a century since the official signing of the Paris Peace Treaties in 1919 that officially announced a new era of peace in Europe and the world. The actual fighting had ended the year before, on the 11th of the 11th at 11.00 am, which is why we come together to remember and try to make sense of the horror unleashed between the years 1914 and 1918.

Caroline B. Glick defends Trump's Syria policy

Sultan Erdogan gives the Muslim Brotherhood salute
Click makes a reasonable argument but I am yet to be convinced: https://www.israelhayom.com/opinions/trump-did-not-betray-the-kurds/  Glick blames "the Pentagon" for failing to re-think America's relationship with Erdogan's Turkey, but should not that kind of re-do come from the Oval Office? I am just reading that Turkish alliance troops have now "liberated" over 700 Islamic State fighters from a prison in northern Turkey. Why should we be surprised?

Candidate Julian Castro's Struggle Against Reality


As mad as cut snakes
[Hat Tip: Clarice Feldman] Candidate Julian Castro supports the right of transgender women (that is to say, human-beings born as males; or, at least, let us say people whose parents oppressively identified them at birth as males on the bogus basis of genitalia, chromosome allotment etc) to have the state pay for their abortions. The Democratic Party's presidential candidates, I fear, have entered the Land of Monty Python: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PObBA2wH5l0&t=42s

Ocasio-Cortez weeps over an empty parking lot


The choice of the purity of white clothes makes this more grotesque

This, in a sane world, should end her brief, bizarre political career: https://pjmedia.com/trending/aoc-weeps-over-empty-parking-lot/

Australia's Dreyfus?

Subscription link: https://www.salisburyreview.com/subscribe-digital-edition/ 



Here is my latest article for the British magazine Salisbury Review. The piece is titled "Australia's Dreyfus?": 



Cardinal George Pell, until recently the Vatican’s Treasurer, is the most senior official of the Catholic Church ever to be convicted of child sex abuse. On December 11, 2018, a jury found him guilty of sexual misconduct involving two thirteen- year-olds, pseudonymously ‘The Kid’ and ‘The Choirboy’. On March 13, 2019, Pell was sentenced by the judge to six years in prison. Many Australians, not all of them progressives, believe the unanimous 12-0 jury decision against Pell is something to celebrate. Hetty Johnston, chair of Bravehearts, an organisation she founded following her young daughter’s sexual assault in 1997, was greatly encouraged: ‘Nobody gets to harm a child because they’re richer or more famous than everybody else. So, to all survivors everywhere: don’t be frightened of the person who has done this to you. Take your complaints to the police, and justice will be served.’ But has justice, in the case of Cardinal Pell, been served?

Don't buy things made in China


China 1979: another Daryl McCann photograph
Here is my piece about the crushing of any hope of democracy in Communist China in 1979: http://www.quadrant.org.au/magazine/issue/2012/4/democracy-wall-beijing-1979%20 

The Annhilation of Hong Kong by Communist China

China has been run by a bunch of totalitarians since 1949. This is one of my famous photographs of the 1979 "Democracy Wall" 
The freedoms of Hong Kong will be obliterated by Communist China - as anyone with any brains could have predicted more than two decades ago: https://tsionizm.com/analysis/2019/06/12/the-new-long-march-begins-in-hong-kong/

The Persecution of Christians under the Palestinian Authority

Bethlehem (Photograph: Daryl McCann)

Last year I visited Bethlehem, which is under the auspices of the Palestinian Authority. Our 'Christian' guide had nothing but praise for the peace-loving Palestinian Authority: https://besacenter.org/perspectives-papers/persecution-christians-palestinian-authority/
