‘Leon Brittan was undoubtedly one of the leading British Jews of his generation. He rendered great service to this country in all the great offices he held, and but for the vagaries of political life might well have gone on to achieve even greater things.
His parents had come to Britain from Lithuania before the war, his father, Joseph, becoming a well-loved GP in Cricklewood, north London. Leon grew up in an Orthodox Jewish household, attended Haberdasher’s Aske School and from there won an exhibition to Trinity College, Cambridge.’
‘If there was a sex scandal swirling around Prince Andrew it didn’t show yesterday as he returned to royal duties after an attempt to have him testify about underage ‘sex slave’ Virginia Roberts failed.
He was photographed laughing heartily in front of a Union Jack as he donned his naval uniform for a ceremony at RNAS Yeovilton in Somerset.
The prince has vehemently denied allegations in the US that he slept with 17-year-old Virginia Roberts, who alleges she was ‘procured’ for him by his close friend, convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.’
‘Survivors of sex abuse say they have received death threats and been approached by their abusers, after MPs published their details online last week.
As part of its inquiry into how the Home Office handled historical sex abuse, the House of Commons’ Home Affairs select committee revealed the identities of four victims on its website.
In a letter to Home Secretary Theresa May, a group of abuse survivors said: “It has exposed us as individuals, making us feel vulnerable, and is having a huge impact on our work.”
Keith Vaz, the chair of the inquiry, published an unedited version of the 96-page document, but has since redacted the names of the survivors of abuse and other sensitive details.’
‘Members of Australia’s Orthodox Jewish community who assist police investigating alleged child sexual abuse have been pressured to stay silent, secret tape recordings and emails obtained by Fairfax Media reveal.
The details of the pressure being exerted on victims have emerged as the Royal Commission into child sex abuse prepares to hold public hearings next week to examine the responses of Melbourne and Sydney’s yeshivah centres to alleged offences dating back to the 1980s.
In one secret, legally recorded 2011 telephone conversation, prominent Melbourne criminal lawyer Alex Lewenberg tells a victim of St Kilda Yeshivah centre sex offender David Cyprys he should not have co-operated with police.’
‘Gary Glitter has claimed he could not have abused two girls in his dressing room because he would have been too busy cleaning his wig.
The former rock singer said he rarely stayed backstage after shows because the sweaty hairpiece required an hour and a half’s maintenance after every performance.
Glitter, 70, faces 10 charges relating to a string of alleged child sex offences committed at the height of his fame in the 1970s and 1980s.’
Roughly 1500 kids are tied up or locked down every day by school officials in the United States.
‘At least 500 students are locked up in some form of solitary confinement every day, whether it be a padded room, a closet or a duffel bag. In many cases, parents are rarely notified when such methods are used.
On any given day when school is in session, kids who “act up” in class are pinned facedown on the floor, locked in dark closets, tied up with straps, bungee cords and duct tape, handcuffed, leg shackled, tasered or otherwise restrained, immobilized or placed in solitary confinement in order to bring them under “control.”
In almost every case, these undeniably harsh methods are used to punish kids for simply failing to follow directions or throwing tantrums. Very rarely do the kids pose any credible danger to themselves or others.’
‘Ivory Coast’s authorities say a majority of 21 children kidnapped in recent weeks have been found dead with their bodies mutilated, raising fears of a wave of ritual sacrifices ahead of elections.
Most of the children were found dead, mutilated, decapitated and without their genitals in various parts of Ivory Coast since December, police said.
“The phenomenon is real and unusual. Our services have registered 21 cases,” said police chief, Brindou M’Bia.’
‘Flight logs from billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet, the “Lolita Express,” read like a who’s who of power players: Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz, and Treasury Secretary Larry Summers are just a few passengers. But could the documents be hiding an even darker story about Epstein’s inner circle?
According to newly filed court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, flight logs that have been filed in court and released to the media were potentially “sanitized” to protect the men who palled around with the convicted sex offender.’
