This Bull started off as the most hated bull market in History, and it is now metamorphosing into the most insane of all Bull Markets.

Historically, the crowd is almost always in the bullish camp at this stage of the game, but that does not appear to be the case. In fact, what stands out is that the masses are as anxious as ever, and yet the markets are trading close to their highs. Stock Market Trends-Is the Stock Market Heading for a Crash?

Palestine Expo starts in UK despite attempts to cancel

Europe’s largest Palestinian heritage event has opened its doors despite attempts to have it cancelled by pro-Israel groups.

Palestine Expo bills itself as a celebration of Palestinian culture, history, and food, and is expected to draw more than 10,000 people on Saturday and Sunday.

Whether the event would go ahead was uncertain as recently as last week, as the British government considered complaints by pro-Israel groups.

Officials eventually decided to let the event proceed but not before threats of legal action by the event’s organisers, Friends of Al-Aqsa (FOA) Full Story

“We’re very happy to see how many people have turned out to support the Palestinians,” she said, adding: “Sometimes, we do feel that we’re a forgotten cause”.

“The idea that we want to send out is that Palestinians don’t need charity, they need support.

“Everyone in the world should voice their support until we Palestinians get our rights back.”

When asked for her thoughts on attempts by pro-Israel groups to shut the event down, she responded: “They don’t want the truth.”

“We are witnessing a desperate and underhanded tactic being used to undermine Palestine Expo,” he added, accusing opponents of the event of running a “deliberate smear campaign”.

“We hope this added publicity encourages many more people to attend the event and find out what life is really like for Palestinians on a daily basis

Biggest Palestinian Expo in Europe Opens in London

Despite efforts to shut it down, the event billed as the largest Palestinian solidarity expo ever to take place in Europe opened as planned Saturday morning, with thousands of enthusiastic ticket holders streaming through the doors of the Queen Elizabeth II Center in Westminster to celebrate Palestinian heritage, culture and history.

They were there to dance dabke with their children, order up majadara and chicken at the food court, join in spoken word performances, snap photos of a mock Gaza refugee camp tent, and, above all, tap into lectures and panels on the theme of the gathering: “2017 as the year of 100 years of the Balfour Declaration50 years of Israel’s occupation and 10 years of the siege on Gaza.” Full Story

Ismail Patel, founder of Friends of Al-Aqsa, said the department was unlawfully interfering in the event. “They have failed to provide any satisfactory reason as to why they have chosen to cancel an event which seeks to celebrate Palestinian culture and heritage,” he said. He accused the department of acting on hearsay from a pro-Israeli lobby group.

He added: “Despite the threat from DCLG, we will make further efforts to hold Palestine Expo and will seek a judicial review of this unfair and unjust decision.” Full Story
