'Drunk' Locals Threaten Manus Island Asylum Seekers at New Accommodation

Refugees and asylum seekers on Manus Island said locals arrived at their new accommodation on December 10 and threatened them with violence. Although media and aid groups have been prevented from entering the new accommodation, locals were filmed entering the supposedly secure compound at Hillside Haus and verbally abusing men at West Lorengau Haus. In the early hours of Sunday, four men reportedly approached the main gate of the West Haus accommodation where refugees from the former Australian-run Manus Island detention centre were forcibly relocated to. The video shows one man, who appears to be drunk, at West Haus brandishing what looks like a metal pipe and telling the asylum seekers through the gate “you’re dead meat” and “Mi bai killim yu”, which ABC reported is New Guinean pidgin for “I will kill you”. Security stopped the man from entering the compound and as he walked away he continues to hurl abuse before launching the pipe at the side of the accommodation. In another incident at Hillside, another drunk man, reportedly a landowner, was let inside the facility. Video shows him saying “give me chicken and everything” before walking into the mess hall. Later, refugees clarified “this man was not dangerous, just drunk. He was saying I love you. He was saying we are in his land and that he will protect and support us”, but still questioned the efficacy of security if he had malevolent intentions. Iranian journalist and refugee Behrouz Boochani said two nights earlier a local approached the compound demanding the men must leave. A similar incident occurred at Port Moresby around the same time. Boochani noted that the new accommodations were in close proximity to small villages in the island’s township and that tension had escalated as the result of procured land for the facilities. Prior to being forcibly moved, asylum seekers and refugees repeatedly expressed concern about violence from locals and cited the lack of security at the new accommodation. About 60 refugees were flown to Port Moresby from December 13 to be assessed and processed for resettlement in the US, according to notices published by refugees. Credit: Anonymous via Storyful

Brazen Squirrel Steals Only the Choicest Holiday Gifts2m37s

Brazen Squirrel Steals Only the Choicest Holiday Gifts

Michele Boudreaux of Maplewood, New Jersey, and husband set up a camera to figure out who was taking all of the most expensive chocolates in their holiday “treat table” for neighborhood delivery people, only to discover the culprit was a squirrel. Boudreaux laid out the mystery and shocking conclusion in her blog post: “On Monday, I put out this year’s treat table and—NO JOKE—within a few hours, ALL the Ghirardelli chocolate squares were gone. I couldn’t believe it. Why would someone do such a thing? [sic] “My husband, being an anti-surveillance nerd who is aware of all the myriad ways HUMANS are tracked constantly, decides to set up a small camera. Not that we’d do anything about it, should we find the thief. We aren’t like that. The chocolates are free, after all. It was more about KNOWING who would do such a thing. Who can eat that much Ghirardelli? “So, the camera goes up yesterday and I head out with my husband to take the dog for a walk. It’s midday, right around 1 PM. The sky is overcast and we’re enjoying the weirdly warm weather. We walk for a while then return to the house. “That’s when we spot the FATTEST squirrel. I mean, this squirrel is so obese—a jolly ol’ chap—he must be prepping for a decade of winters. Even my rat terrier dog took one look and said, ‘Nope.’ “So the fat squirrel is standing on our step stool, furiously digging through our wooden tray. He’s digging and digging and digging and then he TAKES OFF toward our backyard carrying whatever he possibly can. “’You don’t think… I mean, no way, right?’ I say to Toby. “Sure enough, every piece of chocolate is gone. “Toby tries chasing the fat bastard through our yard to see where he’s taking all our goodies but the thief makes a successful getaway. “At this point, I am still not convinced that a squirrel ran off with THAT many squares of Ghirardelli. I mean, that’s insane. What is he doing with them? Building the most amazing nest, a rodent palace consisting of fine chocolate? “This morning, I head out to take the kids to the bus stop and I spot an unopened square of Ghirardelli on our driveway. When I return, I decide to comb the perimeter of our yard, because NO WAY. “Sure enough, I find three other unopened squares of Ghirardelli. “This squirrel went from being the biggest jerk ever to becoming the greatest fuzzy freak I’ve ever not quite met. “We now have our chocolate in a jar that requires opposable thumbs.” Credit: Michele Boudreaux via Storyful

Israeli Security Forces Crack Down on New Protests in East Jerusalem

Israeli security forces cracked down on fresh protests in East Jerusalem on Saturday, December 9, as Palestinians came out for a third day against the US’s decision to recognize the city as Israel’s capital. At the start of the week US President Donald Trump said the US embassy would move to Jerusalem despite Israel not holding sovereignty over Jerusalem under international law. The declaration has drawn condemnation from world leaders and ignited protests in many Muslim-majority countries. In East Jerusalem’s Salah Eddin street, Israeli soldiers on Saturday forced shopkeepers to shutter their businesses and forcefully arrested numerous protesters. This footage by a journalist based in East Jerusalem shows chaotic scenes with security forces arriving on horseback. Friday saw clashes in Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza. Overnight, Israel carried out deadly air strikes on Gaza in response to reported rocket attacks, killing two people and wounding dozens more. Earlier in the week, Hamas called for a new intifada – meaning uprising – in response to the US declaration. Credit: Facebook/Muhammed Qarout Idkaidek via Storyful
