The destruction of Hamburg has been massive. There is much going on behind the scenes politically with the focus now on intensely monitoring and censorship to be imposed. The degree of violence many view as unprecedented since the raid on Jewish businesses during the Nazi era. Inquiries are now looking into the organizers behind the scenes and where this originated from.

As if things weren’t bad enough for America’s mall owners, what with the having to filling their retail space with high schools, grocers and churches, it seems that retailers have grown so uncertain about the future of these 1980s relics that they’re only willing to sign 1-2 leases these days.
As Bloomberg points out this morning, leases renewals used to be 5-10 years in length but are increasingly only being signed with 1-2 year terms. Meanwhile, thousands of stores are closing each year and it’s only expected to get worse over time.

The court heard how Amer K. stabbed the mother of his three children in the chest and neck more than twenty times with a large kitchen knife, because he thought she wanted to divorce him. “Then he takes the knife and plunges it into her chest, [penetrating] the pericardium and heart muscle. A second stab opens the left abdominal cavity. Nurettin B. then pulls out the ax. With the blunt side he hits her head, cracking her skull. Then he grabs the rope. On one end he ties a gibbet knot around her neck, then he ties the other end to the trailer hitch on [his car]… He races through the streets at 80 km/h [until] the rope breaks.” – State Prosecutor Ann-Kristin Frhlich, reconstructing the husband’s actions. In Ahaus, a 27-year-old Nigerian asylum seeker stabbed to death a 22-year-old woman after she seemingly offended his honor by rejecting his romantic advances. The trial of a Kurdish man who tied one of his three wives to the back of a car and dragged her through the streets of a town in Lower Saxony has drawn attention to an outbreak of Muslim honor violence in Germany.
Honor violence – ranging from emotional abuse to physical and sexual violence to murder – is usually carried out by male family members against female family members who are perceived to have brought shame upon a family or clan.
Offenses include refusing to agree to an arranged marriage, entering into a relationship with a non-Muslim or someone not approved by the family, refusing to stay in an abusive marriage or living an excessively Western lifestyle. In practice, however, the lines between crimes of honor and crimes of passion are often blurred and any challenge to male authority can elicit retribution, which is sometimes staggeringly brutal.

Hundreds of civilians are seeking refuge inside a mosque in the Central African Republic (CAR)’s border town of Bangassou, Reuters reports.
What may be surprising to the American public is that these civilians are trying to escape ongoing attacks committed by Christian militias that killed at least 30 civilians over the weekend, according to U. N. officials and aid workers.
According to Reuters, the weekend attacks in Bangassou, located on the Congolese border, have involved hundreds of fighters with heavy weaponry. The fighting is aimed at the Muslim populations and signals that the conflict currently besieging the country is worsening.
‘The situation is extremely deplorable and we are doing everything to rapidly retake control of Bangassou,’ MINUSCA (the U. N. mission) chief Parfait Onanga-Anyanga told Reuters in an interview.

Above the initials R. B. we are dealt with as follows:
‘You lying scumbags! You won’t get away with it. Real Americans are behind Trump and can see the truth. One day we will find you! Personally!’
(Perhaps it’s time to move?)
‘Go [fornicate] yourself,’ thunders another reader, demanding of us the anatomically impossible – and thumbing a nose at our Presbyterian standard.
A third consigns our poor soul to a signally abject fate: ‘Go to hell!’
We reckoned yesterday about the possible impeachment of President Trump.
We apparently gave some readers the impression we’re down on all fours with it… that we somehow have it in for Mr. Trump.
Yet we plead innocent on every count. And we go to the gallows under protest.
We have no heat against Trump.

Christian Economics: Student’s Edition
Christianity brought a new view of time to the world: linear time. Christianity teaches that there are three periods in history: creation, fall, and redemption. History will end with the final judgment. This view was inherent in Hebrew religion, but the Old Testament only hints at final judgment, mainly in the last three verses of the Book of Daniel. In the New Testament, the doctrine of the final judgment is taught clearly in Matthew 25:31–46 and Revelation 20:14–15.
The rival view of time is cyclical time. It was taught by the ancient Greeks and Romans. It is still taught in Eastern religions. Cyclical time affects the cosmos. There is no doctrine of permanent progress or permanent loss. Individuals are subject to karma: the transmigration of souls. After seemingly endless reincarnations, a truly righteous soul disappears into the cosmic one and loses all individuality. This is the end of its history. But there is no final judgment.
In the Bible, the doctrine of creation occupies just two chapters: Genesis 1 and 2. Genesis 3 tells the story of the Fall. The last part of the chapter tells of the beginning of redemption: God separates Adam and Eve from the tree of life. He provides them with animal skins. One or more animals had to die: shed blood. Final judgment occurs after the resurrection of bodies described in Revelation 20:14–15. The final two chapters of Revelation do not refer to history but rather to the post-resurrection, post-final judgment new heavens and new earth. This is not heaven, which is a holding area for souls (Revelation 6:10–11), and it is not hell, which is also a holding area for souls (Luke 16).
The meaning of redemption is tied to the word for redeem: to buy back. Christianity teaches that the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ in history constituted a comprehensive act of redemption. This has paid God for the sins of God’s people, who are covenant keepers by the grace of God. The Apostle Paul wrote: “For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time” (I Timothy 2:5–6). Conclusion: “You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men” (I Corinthians 7:23). This has to do with individual salvation.

As predicted, festival-goers rushed to buy gold in celebration of Akshay Tritiya in India this year. According to the Economic Times, gold sales increased more than 30% during the important Hindu holiday celebrated on April 28. All-told, Indians bought more than 23 tons of gold that day.
Akshay Tritiya ranks as one of the four most important days for Hindus. The word Akshay roughly translates to ‘the never diminishing.’ The day is believed to bring good luck and success. It is also considered one of the most auspicious occasions to buy precious metals, including gold.
Analysts predicted robust sales this year. Last year, a jeweler strike put a damper on the celebration.

An important Hindu holiday will take place on Friday, and Indians are expected to celebrate by rushing to buy gold. Akshay Tritiya ranks as one of the four most important days for Hindus. The word Akshay roughly translates to ‘the never diminishing’. The day is believed to bring good luck and success. It is also considered one of the most auspicious occasions to buy precious metals including gold.
After a jewelers strike last year put a damper on gold sales, gold demand for this years Akshay Tritiya is expected to be unusually high. Managing director of the World Gold Council’s India division, Somasundaram P R, told Business Standard he expects a big rebound this year.
‘It was not a real Akshaya Tritiya last year, due to jewelers’ long strike ahead of this festival. While some of the jewelers and artisans came back to work, buying was not encouraging. We see a completely different trend this year. Akshaya Tritiya and the surrounding week have seen a demand increase. After all the troubles of demonetization, sales seem to have come back. From the initial estimates, there seems a strong revival in demand. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the demand twice as much as last year.’

“They devoted themselves to the teachings and to the communal life, to the breaking of bread and to the prayers. Awe came upon everyone, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all according to each one’s need.
Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple area and to breaking bread in their homes. They ate their meals with exultation and sincerity of heart, praising God and enjoying favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.”
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
“We are not remote elites or ascetic philosophers, who dwell alone and exile themselves from ordinary human life. We do not forget the debt of gratitude that we owe to God, our Lord and Creator; we reject no creature of His hands, though certainly we exercise restraint upon ourselves, lest we make an immoderate or sinful use of His gifts. And so we travel for now with you in the world.”
‘What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love.’
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

Next Tuesday is a Comex precious metals option expiration that is more significant for silver than for gold, given the activities of the metals in this month’s contracts.

In honor of the Donald’s ‘Mother of All Bomb’ (MOAB) attack on the Hindu Kush mountains Thursday, let me introduce MOAD.
I’m referring to the ‘Mother of All Debt’ crises, of course. The opening round is coming when Washington goes into shutdown mode on April 28, which happens to be Day 100 of the Donald’s reign.
In theory, this should be just a routine extension of the fiscal year (FY) 2017 continuing resolution (CR) by which Congress is funding the $1.1 trillion compartment of government which is appropriated annually.
The remaining $3 trillion per year of entitlements and debt service is on automatic pilot, but the truth is Washington can’t agree on what to do about either component – except to keeping on borrowing to pay the bills.
There is a problem with this long-running game of fiscal kick-the-can, however. Namely, a 100 year-old statute requires Congress to raise the ceiling for treasury borrowing periodically, but the Imperial City has now reached the point in which there is absolutely no way forward to accomplish this.

Gold imports by India are said to have jumped almost seven-fold in March from a year earlier as jewelers stocked up anticipating a demand recovery during the wedding season that began this month and the auspicious Hindu gold-buying day of Akshaya Tritiya.
Shipments advanced 582.5 percent to 120.8 metric tons last month from a year earlier, according to a person familiar with provisional data from the finance ministry, who asked not to be identified as the data aren’t public. Imports dropped 20 percent to 716.4 tons in the year ended March 31. Finance Ministry spokesman D. S. Malik declined to comment on the data.
Consumption in India, the world’s second-biggest gold buyer, has been recovering after a falling to the lowest level in seven years in 2016. A strike in March last year after a levy was introduced on jewelry produced and sold in India reduced consumption that was further dented by the government’s decision to withdraw high-denomination currency notes. March usually sees a spurt in gold imports due to warehouse clearance and re-stocking, the person said.

Despite polls showing that 71% of Canadians would not have voted for the measure, Canada’s Parliament, with the strong backing of Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government, passed a motion this week 201 to 91 that critics say singles out Islam for special protection. Tabled by Muslim liberal MP Iqra Khalid, M-103 urges the federal government to ‘condemn Islamophobia’ and to ‘develop a whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination including Islamophobia.’ The term ‘Islamophobia’ is nowhere defined in the motion.
A petition on CitizenGo asking MPs to stop the ‘restrictive ‘anti-blasphemy” motion has been signed by 79,500 people.

On a day when all eyes are on Washington and the healthcare vote, President Trump just won an important victory as a Virginia judge refused to block his revised travel ban against six predominantly Muslim countries (even though, as Bloomberg reports, the directive remains on hold because of court orders in two other states).
U. S. District Judge Anthony Trenga on Friday denied a request by Muslim activists for a temporary restraining order, who said Trump’s revised March 6 executive order — like the original before it — was a disguised “Muslim ban” that discriminated against immigrants based on their religion. The Virginia case was brought by Linda Sarsour, a well-known Muslim activist from Brooklyn, New York, and national co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington that took place the day after Trump’s inauguration. The suit was the first that sought to use Trump’s recent public remarks against him court, in addition to his comments about Muslims during the campaign. As Bloomberg reports,
At a hearing in Alexandria on March 21, the government’s lawyer, Dennis Barghaan, said another ruling blocking the executive order wasn’t warranted because of the injunctions issued in Hawaii and Maryland. But Gadeir Abbas, an attorney for the plaintiffs, said his clients are still being harmed because “the status of the other orders isn’t durable, and they could be reversed at any time.”

Update: it appears that press reports were wrong, because according to the BBC, Trevor Brooks aka Abu Izzadeen is still in prison. Which obviously means that he could not have been the attacker.
Press reports are circulating that the terrorist responsible for the attack on Westminster Bridge in London, has been named as Abu Izzadeen, born Trevor Brooks from Clapton in Hackney, an infamous UK-born hate-preacher amd Islamic extremist who had been convicted for raising funds for terrorism.
A 2013 DailyStar article, reports that the convicted terror fundraiser Abu Izzadeen branded a Muslim chaplain who served British soldiers a ‘traitor’ for working for the UK Government, and added that the firebrand preacher has encouraged followers to ‘look out’ for the cleric.

“If the Macron bubble doesn’t pop, this may portend the realignment, not just of French politics, but Western politics in general, away from the left-right division that has defined Western politics since the French Revolution, towards a division between the people and the elites.” – Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry, French political analyst. “This divide is no longer between the left and the right, but between patriots and globalists.” – Marine Le Pen, French presidential candidate. The presidential election in France officially got underway on March 18, when the Constitutional Council announced that a total of eleven candidates will be facing off for the country’s top political job.
The election is being closely followed in France and elsewhere as an indicator of popular discontent with traditional parties and the European Union, as well as with multiculturalism and continued mass migration from the Muslim world.
The first round of voting will be held on April 23. If no single candidate wins an absolute majority, the top two winners in the first round will compete in a run-off on May 7.
If the election were held today, independent “progressive” candidate Emmanuel Macron, who has never held elected office, would become the next president of France, according to several opinion polls.
