GDPR: The Illusion of More Rights and the Hypocracy

GDPR has just come into action throughout the EU, telling you that you have more rights regarding data held about you, nothing can be further from the truth.

The full script of the Regulation is here.

Notice in paragraph 5 & 6, especially the text:
5) ...National authorities in the Member States are being called upon by Union law to cooperate and exchange personal data so as to be able to perform their duties or carry out tasks on behalf of an authority in another Member State.  6) ...should further facilitate the free flow of personal data within the Union and the transfer to third countries and international organisations,10) ..This Regulation also provides a margin of manoeuvre for Member States to specify its rules, including for the processing of special categories of personal data (‘sensitive data’). Basically the above translates to the fact that your information must be shared with other EU states, whether held by your own state or a private company. States also don't hav…

Jews, Christians and Palestinians, historically and today who has a rightful claim to Israel

This is a much contested topic, the Muslim Palestinians insisting on a right of return, the Jews claiming Israel is their's, so who is right?

Firstly we need to clarify a few facts (hereafter, Palestine means the former British Mandate of Palestine that is now Jordan, Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip collectively and does not include the former parts of the French Palestine, being Syria and Lebanon). Population of Palestine (numbers) In 1920, the official British Government's Interim Report on the Civil Administration of Palestine by T.E. Lawrence stated that there were hardly 700,000 people living in Palestine. Palestine at the time was today's Jordan, Israel, Gaza Strip and the West Bank, meaning today the population of the same area is 18.7 million (an increase of 18 million over the last 95 years).  To put this into perspective, the entire area of what was then called Palestine was 116,127 km², slightly smaller than the small African nation of Eritrea with a p…

Why are Jews So Financially Successful in the World Today

There are currently only 15 million Jews in the world, which isn't many considering that there are 7,046 million people in the world.

In the top richest people in the world, there are 3 Jews in the top 10, 6 in the top 20 and 9 in the top 30 (see http://www.forbes.com/billionaires/list/), however, England's richest man is way down at number 89.  There are 52 million people living in the UK, which means that there are 3.5 times as many UK citizens as there are Jews in the world.

It may be argued that some of these billionaires had a head start due to wealthy family, not so. Look at George Soros ($19.2 billion), he had to survive in Hungry during the Nazi occupation and relied on charity when he lived in London after the war, a real rags to riches story.

In America, Jews make up only 2% of the population, but 100 of 400 wealthiest Americans are of Jewish descent. A study by the Pew Forum institute found that Jews are the richest religious group in the US. Another Gallup poll found…
