    Norway Muslims Form Human Shield Around Jewish Synagogue



    Europe’s Jews face rising anti-Semitism in some countries, but multiculturalism is far from dead. Today, more than 1,000 Muslims formed a human shield around Oslo’s synagogue, offering protection and solidarity with Jews following a violent attack in Copenhagen last weekend.

    Chanting “No to anti-Semitism, no to Islamophobia,” Norway’s Muslims and others formed what they called a ring of peace during the event organized on Facebook.

    “Humanity is one, and we are here to demonstrate that,” Zeeshan Abdullah, one of the organizers told the crowd of Muslim immigrants and ethnic Norwegians who filled the street around Oslo’s only synagogue.

    A man in Georgia broke into his neighbor’s home and pulled three children to safety after realizing his neighbor’s house was on fire.

    I bought an. airline ticket for Bt12500 on 30 Jan this year.

    Today the price for that ticket is Bt25200. Good news for me anyway.

    I really do like the Muslims protecting the Synagogue story. Apart from the religious connotations.

    Somali pirates free four Thai fishermen held for four years



    Four Thai fishermen held hostage by Somali pirates for nearly four years have been released, local officials say.

    "We collected the four Thailand men from a remote area," said Omar Sheikh Ali, an official in Somalia's central Galmudug administration.

    The four fishermen were among 24 crew members seized in April 2010 when Somali pirates hijacked the Taiwan-flagged fishing vessel FV Prantalay 12.

    Their time in captivity is one of the longest suffered by any victims of Somali piracy.

    Mr Ali said the relieved men were able to contact family members soon after their release on Wednesday.

    "They called their families by phone and cried and cried and cried," he said.
