Cameron tells BBC to stop calling barbaric terror group ‘Islamic State’ because name is offensive to ‘many Muslims’

cameron

Daily Mail: David Cameron today called on the BBC not to use the phrase ‘Islamic State’ when referring to the terror group operating in Iraq and Syria. The Prime Minister – who calls the group ‘ISIL’ – said Muslims would ‘recoil’ at the phrase being used to justify the ‘perversion of a great religion’. He insisted that the battle against extremists targeting Britons around the world can be won but will require ‘extraordinary resolve and patience’.

Gunman Seifeddine Rezgui targeted tourists at the Tunisian beach resort of El Kantaoui near Sousse on Friday morning, killing 38 people including up to 30 British tourists. It makes it the worst terror attack on Britons since the July 7 London bombings in 2005. Hakim Rezgui, the father of the gunman, last night claimed extremists had ‘ruined his son’s brain’.

Mr. Cameron urged imams and Muslim leaders to continue to speak out against the terrorism carried out under a ‘perversion of a great religion’ and that extremism is a ‘gateway into terrorism’. He criticised BBC presenter John Humphrys for referring to the group as Islamic State.

The extremists are variously known as Islamic State, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and DAESH, based the Arabic acronym.

During his interview on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme Mr. Cameron referred to the group as ‘ISIL’. ‘I wish the BBC would stop calling it Islamic State because it’s not an Islamic State; what it is an appalling, barbarous regime,’ Mr. Cameron said. ‘It is a perversion of the religion of Islam and many Muslims listening to this programme will recoil every time they hear the words ‘Islamic State’. ‘So-called’ or Isil is better,’ he added. However, some people on social media pointed out that ISIL is an acronym which refers to ‘Islamic State’. In the Commons today,

SNP Westminster leader Angus Robertson backed the call for politicians and the media to stop using ‘Islamic State’, and said ‘Daesh’ should be used instead. He urged the Prime Minister join MPs across all parties, US Secretary of State John Kerry and the French foreign minister Laurent Fabius in ‘using the appropriate term’. Mr. Robertson added: ‘The time has come in the English speaking world, to stop using Islamic State, ISIS or ISIL, and instead we and our media should use Daesh as the commonly-used phrase across the Middle East.’

Mr. Cameron repeated his criticism of the BBC for referring to the group as Islamic State: ‘I think this is particularly offensive to many Muslims who see, as I see, not state but a barbaric regime of terrorism and oppression that takes delight in murder and oppressing women and murdering people because they are gay. I personally think that using the term ISIL or ‘so-called’ would be better than what they currently do. I don’t think we will move them all the way to Daesh so I think saying ISIL is better than using Islamic State because it is in my view neither Islamic nor a state.’

In a statement to MPs Mr. Cameron said ISIS posed an existential threat to the British way of life, but vowed: ‘We will not cower in the face of terrorism.’

He told the Commons there would be a nationwide minute’s silence at midday on Friday to remember the victims. ‘I know the whole country will want to share in a moment of remembrance,’ he said. The Prime Minister said the whole world had been shocked by the ‘horrific attack’ on the beach of Sousse in Tunisia.

Mr. Cameron said Britons were not being advised to stay away from Tunisia’s coastal resorts despite the bloody events at Sousse. He told MPs: ‘The Foreign Office has updated their travel advice, which continues to make clear the high threat from terrorism in the country, just as it did before Friday’s events. But they are not moving to a position of advising against all but essential travel to this part of Tunisia. So they are not advising against visiting the popular coastal resorts. This was agreed by the Cobra emergency committee and will be kept under close review.’ These were ‘difficult judgments’, he said, because ‘nowhere is without risk from Islamist extremist terrorists’.

You can’t fix stupid: Women who get butt injections

Aping big-ass “celebrities” like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, women are getting illegal injections of silicone in their buttocks, with disastrous, sometimes fatal, results.

Kim Kardashian

Rachael Rettner reports for LiveScience, June 18, 2015, that the number of women getting illegal butt injections is on the rise, according to some doctors who say they’ve seen an increase in patients who’ve had the procedure.

But the silicone injections can cause a host of health complications, including:

  • tissue hardening
  • pain
  • infections
  • breathing problems
  • life-threatening blood clots
  • death

Just this month, a 34-year-old woman from Maryland died after receiving the illegal injections in New York, according to news reports. Another woman, named Sophelay Ouk, was hospitalized 25 times after her injections, and is now undergoing treatment in New York to have the silicone removed. Ouk experienced a blockage in her lungs, and also infections.

Dr. Tansar Mir, a plastic surgeon at Lenox Hill Hospital, treated Ouk by cutting out the liquid silicone and attaching the woman to a machine to drain the remaining foreign substance over several days. Mir says he’s seen several dozen patients with silicon butt injections in the last 2½ years, and that these injections are dangerous and are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Most of the injections are done by nonlicensed practitioners.

Mir warns that patients often don’t know exactly what substance is being injected into them. It’s usually non-medical-grade silicone, meaning silicone that could be picked up at the hardware store and that is not sterile.

There have even been reports of women who were injected with tire sealant, mineral oil, baby oil and even cement. In 2011, an unlicensed practitioner was arrested, and later sent to jail, for reportedly injecting women with cement and tire sealant, according to ABC News.

Even when actual silicone is used, it can cause problems, when the injected silicone sometimes gets into the veins and spread to other parts of the body, causing blood clots. If the blood supply to an artery becomes blocked, it can lead to limb loss.

Los Angeles hairdresser Apryl Michelle Brown had a massive infection from illegal butt injections which resulted in a quadruple amputation of her limbs.

Patients can also experience infections because the silicone injections compromise their immune systems. Mir said, “These foreign materials are not meant to be freely floating in the body. The patient’s immune system becomes comprised because the majority of the immune cells are being occupied fighting the foreign material in the buttocks.”

While not everyone experiences life-threatening symptoms from the injections, more common symptoms are pain, burning, itching and swelling in the injection area, or skin changes. Patients can experience skin hardening because the pressure and scar tissue in the area (caused by the immune system’s response) impair the blood supply to the skin. As a result of the loss of blood supply, the skin tissue can start to die.

Even if women don’t experience health problems right away, they may have problems later. Mir said he’s treated women who had symptoms 15 to 20 years after their injections.

Very few U.S. plastic surgeons will treat patients who’ve had illegal silicone buttocks injections. Many doctors are not familiar with the disease physiology, or they don’t want to take on a patient who has complications from something done by another practitioner. Some doctors treat these patients with liposuction and a laser procedure, but Mir said that in his opinion, this treatment should not be done, because it causes the silicone to spread to other areas. Instead, what is needed is surgical excision of the silicone.

Benefits mother-of-four let her kids go hungry to pay for foreign boob job – but now wants NHS to pay for ANOTHER operation after surgery was botched

Gibson: Selfish mom

Gibson: Selfish mom

DailyMail: An unemployed mother-of-four who let her children go hungry so she could pay £4,000 ($6,349 US) for a boob job in Poland is asking the British taxpayer to fork out £5,000 ($7,936 US) for a new one after her surgery left her with wonky breasts.

Naica Gibson stopped buying food for her kids at the end of the month so she could put away almost a third of her benefit cash to fund the surgery on her ‘sagging’ 38D bust. The single-mother even refused to pay for clothes, school trips and days out from the children’s London home for two years as she saved up to go under the knife, saying she ‘had to cut back on pretty much everything. I missed meals as well as them.’

But after her Polish plastic surgeon allegedly left her with one boob bigger than the other – she’s now desperate for another. This time though, she’s wanting it on the NHS for free. The 31-year-old told The Sun: ‘I’m from England and deserve the treatment if I need it. I don’t see anything wrong in using my benefits for a boob job.

Naica has said she can’t even bear to look at her breasts, which have been left covered in scars by two trips to Poland paid for by her benefits cash. She was required to keep her newly boosted bosom wrapped in bandages for weeks after two operations – her initial boob job and a second to tweak them – and relied on a daily cocktail of painkillers to numb the after-effects of her surgeries. However, ever since unravelling them she’s been repulsed by what she claims is a noticeable disproportion in their sizes – an issue which can now only be fixed with pricey corrective surgery.

But instead of scrimping on food once more, Naica – who says she can’t work because she has to look after her four childrenis this time going to the NHS, asking the taxpayer to foot the £5,000 bill. She said that despite being a mother, she still seeks to look her best, and because her attempts to do so have gone wrong it is now up to the NHS to help her.

The saving process for the boob job that she thought would restore her chest back to its youthful glory was a lengthy one for Naica, who lives with her four children – aged between one and 14, from two different fathers – in a three-bedroom townhouse in Tottenham, North London.

She is reportedly paid a total of £1,357 ($2,154 US) every month in tax credits, income support, child benefit, housing allowance and council tax, all from the public purse. Her saving plan saw her put away £100 every week. However, she admitted by the end of the month she’d have ‘no money left for the kids,’ at which point she’d take them to their gran’s house for their dinner. ‘I was determined to get my dream boob job no matter what, even if it meant cutting back on things for the kids,’ she said.

Despite initially planning on paying for an op in the UK, Naica – who has been on benefits all her adult life – couldn’t help but be tempted by the considerably cheaper surgery available in Poland after being blown away by Harley Street prices, where similar procedures start at around £8,500.

After months searching Google for ‘cheap places for cosmetic surgery’, Naica found one surgeon claiming to have given boob jobs to some of the cast from hit reality TV show, Geordie Shore. In January this year, after two years of saving, she paid the £4,250 she’d put away for her operation and travel costs.

However, on her way home she said she realized her boobs weren’t a natural shape and were already becoming extremely firm. She returned to Poland in February, going under the knife again. But her bad luck continued, with her dream breasts quickly becoming a total nightmare. They picked-up an infection on her second flight back home, and required almost immediate hospital treatment when she touched back down in the capital. She said: ‘All I could think was all those missed meals for nothing. I just wanted them fixed.’

Gibson just wants what SHE WANTS...

Doctors have since told her she requires corrective surgery to re-do her boobs. She’s now waiting to speak to a GP to be given the green light for her third op, but this time paid for by the NHS.

Roger Goss, co-director of campaign group Patient Concern, blasted Naica’s cheek. He said: ‘This is simply not right. It gives the NHS a bad name, which it doesn’t deserve. Money used on Naica’s operation would make a massive difference to patients and save lives.’

Andy Silvester, campaign director at the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: ‘This is yet another example of how badly our benefit system needs to be reformed. It’s sheer madness. It was her choice to use her benefits for her surgery, and unless there’s a clear medical reason for the NHS to step in it should be for her to pay for any adjustments.’

Clueless: Joyce Carol Oates Outraged Over Selfie With ‘Dead Dinosaur’

The horror…the horror.Novelist Joyce Carol Oates went into full liberal outrage mode when she spotted a picture of that notorious big game hunter, Steven Spielberg, posing with his prey. In this case it was a Triceratops dinosaur prop from the Jurassic Park movie set. It turns out that Oates’ anger comes about 65 million years too late because that was about how long ago this dinosaur went extinct.  Her laughably misplaced anger was in reaction to a tongue in cheek tweet by IGN movie editor Chris Tilly who probably didn’t think any rational person would take him seriously.

LOL – I have no idea what sort of drugs Oates is doing, but I am wondering if she is willing to share.
