Kenneth Tellis Ordinance de Villiers-Cotterets
In point of fact this document in a sense was the forerunner of Kebek's Bill 101, which was passed by the Kebek Legislature on August 26, 1977, by the Pequiste Government of Rene Levesque.

International The Shamrak Report 2014 ends but the not the problems
Trans-Jordan was part of the Palestinian mandate, which was allocated for creation of a Jewish state by the League of Nations in 1922, in accordance with the Balfour Declaration. Therefore, its separation from Palestinian mandated land was an illegal act. Unfortunately, the dominant imperial powers, Britain and France, controlled the League of Nations which they used to rubber stamp their shady deals at the time. As a result of the deal, in 1922, in order to secure Britain 's financial interests in the Suez Canal, Sinai was given to Egypt by the British with the permission of King Hussein of Hejaz and Nejd, now Saudi Arabia. Jews were not asked! In return, Britain transferred control of the land east of the river Jordan to Hussein's son, Abdullah. Control of the Golan Heights was transferred to the French-run Syrian Mandate and in exchange the United Kingdom got control of the newly discovered oil fields in Kirkuk.

International The Shamrak Report - Double Standards
"Egypt's crackdown in Sinai once again exposes the double standards of the international community toward the war on terrorism. While it is fine for Egypt to demolish hundreds of houses and forcibly transfer thousands of people in the name of the war on terrorism, Israel is not allowed to fire back at those who launch rockets and missiles at its civilians." - Khaled Abu Toameh

International The Shamrak Report: Your Taxes Pay for Murder
Terrorist Prisoners Make More than PA Police....We are tired of hearing anything from anyone associated with the UN. The UN is a parasitic and criminal enterprise dominated by our mortal enemies. You can't recognize a state that has no borders, no single government, and no economy.

International Facing 'Palestine' with Truth an Uncommon Perspective
Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu stated before the U.N. General Assembly last September, "The people of Israel are not the occupiers in the land of Israel." The Mandate for Palestine (1922) merely reaffirmed the longstanding Jewish legal right to settle anywhere between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, an authorization further codified and protected at Article 80 of the U.N. Charter.... Within a few hours of any formal Palestinian "declaration of independence," Arab citizens of Israel - now, over 1.8 million - would begin to transform initially benign celebrations into malignantly full-scale riots... Then, irony of ironies, although these almost two million Arabs had themselves been full citizens of a Jewish State, Palestine would statutorily be Judenrein, or "free of Jews."

International The Shamrak Report Egypt and Israel agree about Gaza
Egypt kept the Rafah crossing closed to those looking to exit Gaza since October 25. Egypt has opened the crossing just once in one direction for two days, allowing residents of Gaza to return home. More than 10,000 medical patients with dire health conditions are currently living in the Gaza Strip, unable to seek adequate care due to the continuous closure of the Rafah crossing. Nigeria suffered one of its bloodiest terrorist attacks a week ago when three bombs exploded outside the Central Mosque in the northern city of Kano , killing at least 120 people. The assault was timed to coincide with Friday prayers and the blasts injured another 260 worshippers. As the blasts tore through the crowd, gunmen opened fire with automatic weapons. (If it does not involve Israelis killing Muslims the hypocrites in the west don't care about Muslim deaths)

International Israel's defiant economic growth
The assumptions that Israel's economic growth depends on the conclusion of peace accords, and that Israel's economy cannot withstand BDS pressure (boycott, divestment and sanctions) are inconsistent with reality. In fact, Israel's unique economic growth -- from $1.5bn GDP in 1949 to $300bn in 2014, from $50mn annual exports in 1949 to $97bn in 2014, and from no foreign exchange reserves in 1949 to $92bn in 2014 -- has been driven by Aliyah (Jewish immigration), fiscal responsibility, brain power, cutting-edge commercial and defense technologies, exports, military posture of deterrence and (most recently) natural gas; not by the peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan, or the Oslo Accord with the PLO.

Jordanian parliament observes moment of silence for terrorists of synagogue attack while Jordanian government (performed act of political correctness fakery) condemns deadly attack. While anti-Semites focus on Israel Egypt will double to one kilometer the depth of a security buffer zone with the Gaza Strip, by clearing houses and trees and destroying subterranean tunnels it says are used to smuggle arms from Gaza to militants in Sinai.

Kenneth Tellis How did Kebek ever gain so much power as a province?
On April 17, 1968, when one Pierre-E. Trudeau became Prime Minister of Canada, he began a slow ascent to power, one step at a time, to fulfill his plans which were already laid out in his Westmount CABAL of November 22, 1963. It may seem that all the eyes of English-speaking politicians from every part of Canada were closed to the reality of such a devious plan, by a minority to wrest control of all Canada by deceit if necessary.

R.P. BenDedek Muslim Children Call for End to Democracy in Australia
As was recently demonstrated in the Middle East with the execution of an Australian Muslim by ISIL, being Muslim does not guarantee any Muslim's safety when the Islamic revolution hits. In fact, if you look at the history behind all the sectarian Muslim vs. Muslim violence in the Middle East, the only guarantee of anything in any Western country if the Islamists manage to take over is that NO ONE - no Muslim, Jew, Christian or otherwise would be safe!

International The Shamrak Report Taking Back Our Inheritance
Thousands of Jewish Israelis were expelled from their homes during the 2005 Disengagement - but soon, some of them may have a chance to return. MKs Ze'ev Elkin (Likud) and Orit Struk (Jewish Home) have drafted a bill to restore Homesh and Sa-Nur to its former Jewish residents, Walla! News reports on Wednesday night, as well as to "eliminate the rights" of those who have invaded the communities since then. The foundation of the bill is based on the fact that both Homesh and Sa-Nur are in the area of Judea-Samaria under full control of the State of Israel.

Kenneth Tellis Imperatif Francais, what a croc as a name for a Franco-Amerindian organization
When it comes to common sense, one finds that the Franco-Amerindians in their mad rush to avoid bringing up their Native American roots choose what they think will distance themselves from their half-brothers the Native Americans and put them closer to their French half-brothers. But, that doesn't happen as people see through their devious plan, and their Native American background rears itself and exposes their true hybrid stock

Kebek is violation of the spirit and intent of the NAFTA agreement. Latest Sites shut down are William-Sonoma, West Elm, Pottery Barn and Pottery Barn Kids, a San Francisco based Company on October 22, 2014. Apparently they have been warned that it is illegal to operate in Kebek in any other language but Joual (French patois), as they could fined heavily for violating Kebek's language laws.

International The Shamrak Report : Anti-Israel Rhetoric
The sheikh added: "The Palestinians are the killers of children, the elderly and women. They attack the Jews and then they use those (children, the elderly and women) as human shields and hide behind them, without mercy for their children as if they weren't their own children, in order to tell the public opinion that the Jews intended to kill them. This is exactly what I saw with my own two eyes in the 70's, when they attacked the Jordanian army, which sheltered and protected them. Instead of thanking it (the Jordanian army), they brought their children forward to (face) the Jordanian army, in order to make the world believe that the army kills their children. This is their habit and custom, their viciousness, their having hearts of stones towards their children, and their lying to public opinion, in order to get its support"...

International The Shamrak Report: Simple truths about international anti-Semitism
Simple truths about international anti-Semitism... The US State dept asked for an investigation into death of a 17 year old American Muslim Terrorist in Palestine but didn't care about the murdered American Jewish baby in Israel.... Almost 5,000 people have been killed by Ebola. Only $365 million has been committed by the international community but $5.4 billion has been pledged to help rebuild the Gaza Strip. Simple truths about international anti-Semitism which is behind the worldwide support, by Muslim and 'Christian' ruled countries, for the enemies of Jewish state!

As I will cease to be Editor of Magic City on December 31st 2014 and since at this stage I do not know if I will continue my association with Magic City, I have removed most of the text on the Chapter pages, leaving only 'excerpts' from those chapters. However it must be pointed out that all chapters have undergone a lot of revision and what appears at Magic City may be a little different from the final draft.
