Zero Hedge: The British government purports to be re-establishing the UK as an independent nation state by leaving the EU, but British power and ability to decide its own policies are continuing to ebb in the real world.
The latest evidence of this is the decision by the Home Secretary Sajid Javid to give precedence to the US in putting on trial two alleged ISIS members from London, who belonged to the notorious “Beatles” group in Syria that specialised in torturing and beheading their captives.
The humiliating admission by a country that it is incapable of dealing effectively and legally with its worst criminals is normally made by states like Colombia and Mexico, which extradite drug lords to the US.

By 1948, Yasser Arafat had learned to incite terror against the Jewish people over the land of promise from the Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini.

“Even though Edom has said,
We have been impoverished,
But we will return and build the desolate places” Malachi 1:4.
Once he was in power, he began a campaign of terror and intimidation against anyone opposed to his rule and policies.

“Thus says the Lord of hosts:
“They may build, but I will throw down;
They shall be called the Territory of Wickedness,
