16-Oct-13 World View -- Sicily declares state of emergency as African migrants flood in

Starving Syrians are told to eat dogs, cats and donkeys

This morning's key headlines from GenerationalDynamics.com

Starving Syrians are told to eat dogs, cats and donkeys


Clerical fatwa permits starving Syrians to eat dogs, cats and donkeys
Clerical fatwa permits starving Syrians to eat dogs, cats and donkeys

A group of clerics in Syria have issued a fatwa giving starving men, women and children permission to eat cats, dogs and donkeys, if they have nothing else to eat. The fatwa is directed to suburbs of Damascus where Syria's psychopathic president Bashar al-Assad is conducting a siege, refusing to allow aid convoys to enter. At the same time, the cleric pleaded for humanitarian help:

"How does the world sleep with full stomachs while there are hungry people, and not far from the main city [Damascus], just few meters way.

Havenít you heard the fatwas (religious edicts) that have filled our streets and mosques by permitting people to eat cats, dogs and other animals that have already been killed by the bomb attacks?

Are you waiting for us to eat the flesh of our martyrs and our dead after fearing our lives? ... You have forgot that you have brothers and sisters in southern Damascus who are hungry."

The last paragraph refers to cannibalism.

The fatwa is also being issued to Palestinians in refugee camps near Damascus. Al-Arabiya and BBC

Sicily declares state of emergency as African migrants flood in

Sicily's governor Rosario Crocetta declared a state of emergency on Tuesday, because of difficulty coping with daily arrivals of migrants from Africa and Syria. Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean, and like Lampedusa is part of Italy. Along with Lampedusa and Malta, Sicily is a common entry point of migrants. Calls for action have grown after two tragic shipwrecks last week in which more than 400 Eritrean, Somali and Syrian refugees drowned. Some 32,000 asylum seekers have landed in Italy and Malta so far this year, and the rate continues to grow. Italy has requested EU help in dealing with the flood of migrants. BBC and AFP

Obamacare web code full of typos and errors

Stories continue to indicate that the Obamacare signup web sites are an IT catastrophe of historic proportions, and that they have no chance of working for years. ( "15-Oct-13 World View -- Aetna CEO predicts Obamacare IT failures until 2017") Apparently media outlets have been trying to find anyone who has successfully signed up, and have failed to do so.

The Obamacare web site source code is, of course, not visible to the public, as it sits on web servers. However, there's a portion of the code that's available to anyone. This is the javascript code that the web servers send to your local browser. According to one experienced programmer:

"What I am seeing in this code is nothing short of jaw-dropping. As people are now saying, this code is "CRAAAAAZY!" You almost can't even call it Javascript code. If you sat down 100 monkeys in front of 100 typewriters and told them to start banging away, I'm confident at least one of them would come up with something far better than the Healthcare.gov Javascript code."

The javascript code is full of significant design errors that impact both its functionality and performance. NaturalNews.com
