238 killed, hundreds hurt in Ecuador's 7.8 earthquake

238 killed, hundreds hurt in Ecuador's 7.8 earthquake


The most deadly earthquake to hit Ecuador in nearly two decades has left 238 dead, and leaders of the Andean nation cautioned on Sunday that the death toll could still rise.
The magnitude-7.8 earthquake, which also injured more than 1,500, struck Saturday night, toppling buildings, damaging roads and impacting cities hundreds of miles away from its epicenter near the small fishing village of Muisne. More than 135 aftershocks have been felt, according to Ecuador’s seismological institute.
President Rafael Correa, who was traveling abroad on official business, declared a national emergency and urged Ecuadoreans to stay strong.
“Everything can be rebuilt, but what can’t be rebuilt are human lives, and that’s the most painful,” he said in a phone call to state TV before departing Rome straight for the coastal Ecuador city of Manta.

Europe: Suicide by Jihad

Europe: Suicide by Jihad

by 

"... Islamist enclaves exists in many suburbs. Whole cities are controlled by thugs and radical imams: cities such as Roubaix, Trappes, Aubervilliers and Sevran in the northeast of Paris.
Islamist enclaves also exist in other European countries: Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, theUnited Kingdom and Sweden.

European leaders have been making choices. After World War II, they decided Europe would be a region of the world where war would be banished and all problems solved through diplomacy and appeasement. They gradually abandoned financing defense and security activities. Instead, they built welfare states. They thought that taking care of people from cradle to grave would suppress anger and conflicts. They denied the existence of totalitarian dangers and the necessity of showing strength. To this day, their statements indicate that European leaders think both the Berlin Wall and the Soviet empire fell thanks to the benevolence of Mikhail Gorbachev, not thanks to the determination of Ronald Reagan. To this day, they seem to think that Islam is essentially a religion of peace and that the jihadis belong to a tiny, marginal sect.

Decades ago, Europe's leaders adopted a general policy of "openness" to the Islamic world in general, and the Arab world in particular. They decided to welcome migrants from the Muslim world by hundreds of thousands but without asking them to integrate. They made cultural relativism and multiculturalism their guiding principles. They acted as if Islam could mingle in the Western world harmoniously and without difficulty. Europe's leaders disseminated the idea that the West was guilty of oppressing Muslims and had to pay for its sins. They therefore sowed the seeds of anti-Western resentment among Muslims in Europe.

When in the Muslim world jihadis started to kill, Europe's leaders wanted to believe that the attacks would take place in the Muslim world only. They thought that by not interfering with what European jihadis were planning, they would not risk jihadi attacks on European soil."

When Jews were attacked, Europe's leaders decided that the problem was not jihad, but Israel. They stressed the need not to "export Middle East conflict in Europe." Hoping to please followers of radical Islam and show them Europe could understand their "grievances," they placed increasing pressure on Israel. They also increased their financial and political support for the "Palestinian cause."

When Europeans were attacked, they did not understand why. They had done their best to please the Muslims. They had not even harassed the jihadists. They still do not know how to react.
Many of them now say privately what they will never say in public: it is probably too late.
There are six to eight million Muslims in France, and more than thirty million in Western Europe. Hundreds of jihadis are trained and ready to act -- anytime, anyplace. European intelligence services know that they want to make "dirty bombs." Surveys show that tens of thousands of Muslims living in Europe approve of jihadi attacks in Europe. Millions of Muslims living in Europe keep silent, behave as if they see nothing and hear nothing, and protest only when they think they have to defend Islam.
European political leaders know that every decision they make may provoke reactions among the Muslims living in Europe. Muslim votes matter. Riots occur easily. In France, Belgium, other European countries, Islamists are present in the army and police forces. In the meantime, Islamist organizations recruit and Islamic lobbies gain ground.

European governments are now hostages. The European media are also hostages.
In most European countries, "Islamophobia" is considered a crime -- and any criticism of Islam may be considered "Islamophobic." People trying to warn Europe, such as the Dutch MP Geert Wilders, despite an apparently biased judge and forged documents against him, are now on trial.

The arms of the wicked shall be broken

Psalm 37
12 The wicked plots against the righteous and gnashes his teeth at him, 
13 but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he sees that his day is coming. 
14 The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows to bring down the poor and needy, to slay those whose way is upright; 
15 their sword shall enter their own heart, and theirbows shall be broken. 
16 Better is the little that the righteous has than the abundance of many wicked. 
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, but the LORD upholds the righteous.
18 The LORD knows the days of the blameless, and their heritage will remain forever; 
19 they are not put to shame in evil times; in the days of famine they have abundance. 
20 But the wicked will perish; the enemies of the LORD are like the glory of the pastures; they vanish--like smoke they vanish away. 
21 The wicked borrows but does not pay back, but the righteous is generous and gives; 
22for those blessed by the LORD shallinherit the land, but those cursed by him shall be cut off. 
23 The steps of a man are established by the LORD, when he delights in his way; 
24 though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the LORD upholds his hand.

Earth to cross through Heliospheric Current Sheet.

HELIOSPHERIC CURRENT SHEET: Today, April 7th, Earth is expected to cross through a fold in theheliospheric current sheet. The crossing could trigger unsettled conditions in our planet's magnetic field. NOAA forecasters estimate a 50% chance of minor geomagnetic storms. Aurora alertstext or voice

A SUNSPOT IN THE OFFING: Solar astronomers are monitoring the eastern limb of the sun, where plumes of plasma and flashes of electromagnetic radiation are heralding the approach of a new sunspot. Philippe Tosi of Nîmes, France, photographed the maelstrom from his backyard observatory on April 7th.

Heat Wave - India

Situation Update No. 2
On 2016-04-07 at 08:59:04 [UTC] 

Event: Heat Wave
Location: States of Telangana and Odisha MultiStates India

Number of Deads: 70 person(s)
Number of Injured: 0 person(s)
Number of Evacuated: 0 person(s)
Number of Infected: 0 person(s)

Situation:

At least 70 people have died due to intense heatwave in the southern Indian state of Telangana in the past few days, a senior government official said on Thursday. "So far, nearly 70 people have died due to heat stroke in the state. The highest number of deaths has been reported from Mahabubnagar district where the death toll is 28," he said. Most of those who died were labourers and agricultural workers whose job involved working under the sun, the official added. The Indian weather department has ruled out any respite from the sweltering heat in the coming days and local government officials have asked people not to venture out in the scorching sun. In 2015, more than 500 people died due to sunstroke in Telangana and the neighbouring state of Andhra Pradesh.
