The moon journeys proved that living beings are able to leave their world and to reach other heavenly bodies

It is difficult to decide which is more astonishing: the sensational results of the space research or the restrained echo in the public. So far astronomers have discovered over 1800 alien worlds. They are called exoplanets or extrasolar stellar companions. These are planetary stars like the Earth, but orbiting other suns. Almost weekly there are more. The consequence of the results is obviously misjudged. Otherwise the milestones of the research had to cause quite a stir.

According to russian intelligence, forest fires in southern europe are al-qaida attacks

Intelligence agencies and terrorists cultivate conspiracy theories and mutually believe in the power of their respective opponents

In May, the last online magazine of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) was published ("They have the drones, we have Sharia law"). As always, the open source jihad was preached there, i.e. people in the western countries were called upon to fight the unbelievers through terrorist attacks that cost the lives of as many people as possible or cause as much damage as possible. As an example, it was suggested that arson in forests, when it is dry and the wind is blowing properly, is a good idea to cause as much damage as possible. In the end, all it took was a cigarette.

Muslims threaten german video culture

YouTube and Co. – our weekly Telepolis video review

One thing we want to make clear right at the beginning today; and that is exactly this. That simply had to be said. And now a quick tip for the gentlemen and ladies of the PI blog, who in their fight for the purity of German culture like to confuse politically incorrect with politically underexposed. And that’s why you should quickly visit YouTube, click on "German" as the language, and then watch the video hits of the German-language section. The hit parades offered there are dominated by such typically German videos as "Ezo Gelin 26", "Ezo Gelin 26" and "Ezo Gelin 26". Bolum 4 / 8", "4Yuz 4 Yuz – Kiz Kiza (En iyi Kalite)" or "Avrupa Yakas? 126. Bolum 7 / 10". In short, the good German YouTube video is actually in danger of dying out! And not even the latest Nessie video could place there.
