In writing that the “Oklahoma City bombing, we recall, was conducted by an American, not a Muslim,” he is (perhaps inadvertently) saying that Muslims cannot be Americans.I rejoice to see that Archbishop Mouneer acknowledges “the right of the government to protect the nation from terrorism,” but regret his criticism of “the decision to prioritise the refugee applications of Christians in the Middle East.” Is he possibly unaware of the fact that thousands of fellow Christians have been brutalized and killed in the most savage manner by Muslims otherwise intent on killing each other? Surely the relative handful of Middle East Christians who remain deserve special treatment and it is bizarre to see the Archbishop saying otherwise.I wonder if he would change his tune if some colleague in Jerusalem had his head chopped off by a Muslim terrorist. Tony Oberdorfer says: February 16, 2017 at 8:01 am Religious discrimination is not the issue and to call the desire to save fellow Christians from death for being Christian “simply un-American” is just silly.

Demings and Rice circulate letter to House membersU.S. Representatives Val Demings (FL-10) and Kathleen Rice (NY-04) are circulating a letter to House colleagues urging the Acting Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to issue guidance making it clear to ICE personnel that victims of crimes should never have reason to fear that seeking justice in the court system could lead to detention or deportation.The letter comes after reports last week that ICE agents detained a transgender woman in an El Paso, TX court while she was seeking a protective order for alleged domestic violence.ICE agents escorting Irvin Gonzalez, who also is known as Ervin Gonzalez, from the courthouse.The ICE agents conducted surveillance at the courthouse based on information from an unidentified source who provided the time and place of the hearing, as well as the fact that the alleged victim was living in a domestic violence shelter.The criminal complaint against Gonzalez shows seven deportations from the US (an initial voluntary deportation in 2007 followed by deportations in 2010, 2011, 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2016).The complaint lists eight criminal convictions in the U.S. for Gonzalez from 2010 through 2015. Convictions included assault, domestic violence and false imprisonment.Use this link to read the three-page criminal complaint.In their letter, Representatives Rice and Demings note that a 2011 ICE memorandum advised personnel to exercise all appropriate prosecutorial discretion for cases involving victims and witnesses of crime in order to avoid deterring individuals from reporting crimes and pursuing justice in the court system.“Domestic violence survivors, victims’ advocates, prosecutors, and law enforcement officers agree that fear is both a tool for abusers and a barrier to victims seeking refuge and justice,” write Representatives Demings and Rice. “Unfortunately, these recent actions only encourage fear and run counter to decades of work to build relationships between law enforcement and victims of violent crime. We respectfully urge you to issue guidance making clear to ICE officers, special agents, and attorneys that victims of crimes should have no fear of seeking justice in our court systems.”Representative Val Demings was a member of the Orlando Police Department for 27 years, and served as the Chief of Police from 2007-2011. Representative Kathleen Rice is a former state and federal prosecutor, and the former District Attorney of Nassau County, NY.Use this link to read the full text of the Demings/Rice letter.

Location – History – ProjectThis house is located in an old granite quarry, along the Breton seashore.
At the outset, the future inhabitants wanted a one-story, unobtrusive house giving on to a panoramic sea view. And they had their minds set on Breton-style landscaping, punctuated by multiple terraces.Save this picture!© Pascal LeopoldThe home will be inhabited year-round by a couple beginning a new chapter of their life,after raising their three children.Save this picture!© Pascal LeopoldConceptThe concept behind this house could be summarized as “watching without being seen”; taking advantage of a long traveling-shot panorama, yet at the same time remaining totally integrated into the landscape.Save this picture!© Pascal LeopoldTo this end, the house is designed around a superb sea view. This long home is perfectly integrated into its environment. Built on top of a hill, the only hill remaining at the old granite quarry, is very inconspicuous–a lookout, hidden behind a few cypress trees, judiciously preserved and pruned to let your eyes wander.Save this picture!© Pascal LeopoldThe raw concrete walls are painted black and stained to give a distressed look, and the large bay windows reflect the landscape, enhancing the integration into landscape. In fact, the use of the raw, black glazed concrete, which absorbs, rather than reflecting light, is what makes the desired inconspicuous effect possible. As a result, your eye isn’t attracted to the house, which appears to fade into the surrounding vegetation.Save this picture!Ground FloorThe design of an elongated, one-story house, with a flat roof following the topography and landscape, and using the existing vegetation like a light veil, also supports the inconspicuous effect.Save this picture!© Pascal LeopoldFrom one room to the other, the framing changes, playing with the horizon, the sea, and the vegetation present on the site, taking advantage of the four majestic gorgeous magnificent tall cypresses.
There are three porches designed to fit perfectly with the house, making both inside and outside living possible. They keep you in touch with the outside environment, from inside the house as well, and they allow you to follow the course of the sun throughout the day (East at sunrise, South during the day and West at sunset).Save this picture!© Pascal LeopoldLandscapeIn the garden, we made the choice of keeping the four magnificent cypresses that were already on the property of the old granite quarry. They have been pruned in a Japanese-silhouette style so as to not obstruct the view, while preserving the history of this site.
By the same token, the idea was to keep the rocks extracted during excavation, in order to maintain the garden in, as close as possible, to its natural state. Thus, the landscape of the house was designed with local species present in the Breton ecosystem (gorse, broom, heather, etc.). The property limits are marked with a fence (chestnut and galvanized iron), always present on the Breton seashore.Save this picture!© Pascal LeopoldProduct Description.

Following are excerpts from a statement written by Native political prisoner Leonard Peltier on June 26, 2015. Peltier has been falsely imprisoned for 40 years. In a July 5, 2007, Workers World article, Brenda Ryan wrote: “In Native American history, June 26th is a day of anguish. On that date in 1975, two FBI agents in unmarked cars drove onto a ranch on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. More than 150 agents, vigilantes and law enforcement surrounded the property and opened fire. In the resulting shootout, a young Native man and two FBI agents were killed.“This assault has not ended. For 31 years, Leonard Peltier, a Lakota/Anishinabe organizer of the American Indian Movement (AIM), has been in prison, falsely accused of killing the FBI agents. U.S. prosecutors have publicly admitted that they do not know who actually fired the shots that killed the agents, but they have refused to consider Peltier for parole or to turn over thousands of pages of documents that could prove his innocence.” Go to Int’l Leonard Peltier Defense Committee at tinyurl.com/ngy72uf to read the entire statement and for more information on the struggle to free this heroic freedom fighter.This year I am most concerned with our children and the taking of their own lives. This is very sad to me, as it is to you, and I know there are many reasons for them to feel such despair and hopelessness. But I can only ask and encourage all of us to double our efforts to show them love and support, and let them know that we will always look after them and protect them. That includes asking big brothers and sisters to look after the younger ones. They are our future and have to be protected and to learn to be the protectors. This is not something we can live with, we need to all work to change this.And this year it is even more urgent that we come together to protect our sovereignty. There are so many issues to face and fight. We continue to fight for our Black Hills and to stop the XL pipeline from poisoning our water and our land, and I stand with the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota Nations, and all people of like mind in this fight.The destruction of our Mother Earth by the heavy and toxic Tar Sands oil, fracking, gas and oil drilling and uranium mining is unacceptable to me and to us. We are supposed to be protecting these things even as others try to push us aside. I honor all of our relatives who are on the front lines of this fight.And after all that I have seen in these 40 years behind bars, I was still shocked to see what they are trying to do to the Apache people at Oak Flats. This cannot be tolerated. It is not only a blatant money grab at the expense of a tribe’s Sacred site, but it is an effort to push us back in the direction of termination by ignoring our rights as sovereign nations. This we will not tolerate. Nothing is sacred to these people and they will continue to try to bulldoze us out of the way without even a single thought to our coming generations if we do not continue to stand up and oppose them. We must be ready for anything or we will lose all that we have gained in the last 40 years.The continued use of racist mascots is something that we can never accept as Indigenous peoples and we need to all continue to push to end that racist practice.Time is something I have learned a lot about in these years in prison. And now I can see that time is slipping away from me and I know that if I do not get out under this President I will almost certainly die here in prison.I have been able to survive with the hope you have given to me and your prayers and I am grateful for that support from all of you.I continue to pray for the family of my brother Joe Stuntz [killed by the FBI] and for all those who paid such a dear price in those bitter times 40 years ago.In the Spirit of Crazy Horse.Doksha,Leonard PeltierFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
