The video below purports to show ancient Egyptian sculpture artifacts originally found in the “Giza complex,” but reportedly taken away from Petrie’s Jerusalem home by representatives of the Rockefeller Archaeological Museum shortly after they were found. 

Alien and UFO circles are abuzz with claims of remarkable ancient Egyptian artifacts discovered in the former Jerusalem home of the famous Egyptologist Sir William Petrie, items that “could rewrite ancient Egyptian history” and indeed the history of the world.
According to the Shepard Ambellas, editor-in-chief of the “alternative news” website Intellihub News, the alien Egyptian artifacts were discovered hidden in a secret room behind the Egyptologist’s bookcase. 
Petrie had apparently found proof of extraterrestrial life on Earth before he died in 1942, but chose to hide them away in his Jerusalem home. 
Now that the Rockefeller Museum has taken possession of the artifacts, alien and UFO pundits fear they may never be accessible to th…


In Mali, West Africa, lives a tribe of people called the Dogon.

The Dogon are believed to be of Egyptian decent and their astronomical lore goes back thousands of years to 3200 BC.

According to their traditions, the star Sirius has a companion star which is invisible to the human eye.

This companion star has a 50 year elliptical orbit around the visible Sirius and is extremely heavy.
It also rotates on its axis.

This legend might be of little interest to anybody but the two French anthropologists, Marcel Griaule and Germain Dieterlen, who recorded it from four Dogon priests in the 1930’s.

Of little interest except that it is exactly true. How did a people who lacked any kind of astronomical devices know so much about an invisible star? 

The star, which scientists call Sirius B, wasn’t even photographed until it was done by a large telescope in 1970.

The Dogon stories explain that also. 

According to their oral traditions, a race people from the Sirius system called the Nommos visited Eart…

Ring of migrant-document forgers detained in Greece, Czech Republic

Europol has announced the arrest of 19 people engaged in forging or altering European passports and visas.

The purpose of the criminal operation was to facilitate illegal migration to the EU, authorities said.

Two major Europol operations saw 16 people arrested in Greece and three in the Czech Republic over forged documents for migrants, authorities announced on Tuesday.

Working in tandem with national police, the international law enforcement group uncovered a vast criminal network involved in the "massive production" of falsified or forged passports and visas.

"The forged documents were subsequently provided to irregular migrants to enter the EU or to legalise their stays there," according to the Europol statement.

Authorities identified two large criminal organizations in Athens, composed of Bangladeshi and Sudanese nationals, "operating in parallel" to produce forged passports, Schengen visas, and residence permits. 

They were then distributed through couri…

UN: 'Islamic State' using human shields in Fallujah

The United Nations refugee agency says IS has placed residents in harm's way to try to prevent attacks on their fighters.
Some 3,700 people have fled the militant-controlled city since Iraq lauched a bid to reclaim it.

UNHCR spokesman William Spindler told a news briefing on Tuesday that the refugee body had received "several reports of people being used as human shields by IS" in the besieged Iraqi city.

The outskirts of Fallujah have been the scene of intense fighting for more than a week as Iraqi forces push to retake the city from the militant group.

Spindler told journalists that around 3,700 residents had fled the city since the onslaught had begun. 

But as many as 50,000 more remained trapped and several civilian casualties had been reported over the past few days.

His comments backed up remarks by UNHCR chief Bruno Geddo, made in an interview with DW on Monday. 

Geddo warned that the use of human shields could lead to a "major bloodbath."

Geddo also drew atten…

OSCE: Fighting terrorism at its roots

A comprehensive approach to fighting terrorism is the focus of a two-day OSCE conference.
Because to be effective, action has to be taken where the threat of radicalization is especially great.

Since the start of the year, Germany has been at the helm of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). 

With that, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier (pictured above) is also the current OSCE chairman. 

At the end of 2015, Steinmeier said that one of his goals for the German chairmanship would be to strengthen the OSCE's role as a platform for dialogue.

It's against this backdrop that Berlin is currently hosting a two-day OSCE conference through June 1 on anti-terrorism measures. 

The German Foreign Ministry says participants are discussing not just how to combat terrorism, but how to prevent it. 

Some countries put all their resources into repressive measures. 

But fighting terrorism requires a "comprehensive approach," as Steinmeier said in his op…

Heavy rains cause deadly flooding in southern Germany

Three people have been killed as violent weather struck the southwestern German state of Baden-Württemberg. 

Heavy rain caused an underground car park to collapse.

Much of the destruction is centered in the town of Schwäbisch Gmünd in the East Württemberg region. 

Authorities said a volunteer firefighter was killed while trying to rescue a flooding victim - the man he was trying to save is listed as missing.

Separately, police said one person died in an underground car park in the town of Weißbach after it became flooded with rainwater.

The storm was reportedly centered in the Ostalb district near the state border with Bavaria. 

Numerous vehicles were reportedly underwater and emergency services had to rescue stranded motorists from their vehicles.

Authorities also reported rising flood waters trapping people in houses and businesses with roads closed in the chaos. 

A state government spokesman told the DPA news agency early Monday that reliable casualty figures weren't available. 

But he …

Migrant death toll in Mediterranean Sea tops 1,000 for the week

Bigger boats, with more people on-board, are partly to blame for an increased death toll in the Mediterranean. 
Italian police have also picked up 16 alleged human traffickers at sea.

At least 1,000 migrants drowned in the Mediterranean Sea this past week as the crush of refugees desperate to reach Europe continues, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

The IOM reported on Tuesday that 500 people died last Thursday and approximately 250 more on both Wednesday and Friday. 

A further 50 people were still missing, according to Flavio Di Giacomo, an IOM spokesman in Rome.

"If we add these numbers up, we are well above 1,000," he said.

The UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) put the number of dead at 880, but acknowledged the death toll could be higher.

UNHCR spokesman William Spindler said his agency learned from survivors "that 47 people were missing after a raft carrying 125 people from Libya deflated. 

Eight others were reported separately to have …

Germany's federal and state governments fail to agree on renewable energy reform

After an unsuccessful meeting, Germany's federal and state governments have a difficult road ahead as they deliberate reforms of the promotion of renewable energy. 
The Grand Coalition is also facing problems of its own.

Premier ministers of Germany's 16 states met in the Chancellery in Berlin on Tuesday evening to discuss the planned reform of the Renewable Energy Act (EEG).

At the heart of the dispute is the scale and pace at which renewable energy sources are expanded over the next decade. By 2025, the federal government wants 40 to 45 percent of electricity to be provided by green power sources. 

The share currently stands around 30 percent. In addition, the federal government also wants to link the promotion of wind and solar energy, as demanded by the EU, in tenders.

Both costs and shortages of power lines remain problematic for Germany's 16 states, each of which has different interests. 

While solar energy and biomass is important for Bavaria in the south, wind energy is …
