FREE SPEECH CRACKDOWN: Europe tells British press NOT to reveal if terrorists are Muslims

From the Express:
A report from the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) found there was an increase in hate speech and racist violence in the UK from 2009 to March 2016. 
Blaming the press, ECRI Chair Christian Ahlund, said: “It is no coincidence that racist violence is on the rise in the UK at the same time as we see worrying examples of intolerance and hate speech in the newspapers, online and even among politicians.” 
The report makes a whopping 23 recommendations to Theresa May’s Government for changes to criminal law, the freedom of the press, crime reporting and equality law. And despite the report not analysing coverage of the historic Brexit vote, Mr Ahlund saw fit to comment on the UK's decision to leave the EU. 
In a sweeping statement, he said: “The Brexit referendum seems to have led to a further rise in ‘anti-foreigner’ sentiment, making it even more important that the British authorities take the steps outlined in our report as a matter of priority.” 
The report lays into the British press and urges the government to “give more rigorous training” to reporters. 
In the 83-page report, the Commission said: “ECRI considers that, in light of the fact that Muslims are increasingly under the spotlight as a result of recent ISIS-related terrorist acts around the world, fuelling prejudice against Muslims shows a reckless disregard, not only for the dignity of the great majority of Muslims in the United Kingdom, but also for their safety. 
“In this context, it draws attention to a recent study by Teeside University suggesting that where the media stress the Muslim background of perpetrators of terrorist acts, and devote significant coverage to it, the violent backlash against Muslims is likely to be greater than in cases where the perpetrators’ motivation is downplayed or rejected in favour of alternative explanations.” 
Despite the creation of the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) in 2014 as an independent regulator for newspapers and magazines, the “ECRI strongly recommends that the authorities find a way to establish an independent press regulator according to the recommendations set out in the Leveson Report. 
It recommends more rigorous training for journalists to ensure better compliance with ethical standards.” But as Britain prepares to leave the crumbling bloc, the Government waded in to defend freedom of expression. 
In a written statement to the ECRI, the Government said: “The Government is committed to a free and open press and does not interfere with what the press does and does not publish, as long as the press abides by the law.”

“Billionaire investor George Soros has vehemently condemned Russia’s bombing campaign in Syria, accusing President Vladimir Putin of aggressively exploiting a power void in the White House ahead of the upcoming U.S. presidential elections.”
Soros and Putin have competing pipelines, Soros’ pipeline will run from Qatat and UAE to Syria near where to Russian base is, Putin’s runs from Iran to where the Russian base is. Both are intended to link to the Turkish existing pipeline running to Europe. Soros is playing a dangerous game of “Russian Roulette” with Polonium 210 and tea cups. Unfortunately, you will only get 14 poins if you have him in your ‘dead pool’.
Putin needs to link his pipe to Recep Yipyap Erdogan’s, but there seems to be some hard feelings about Turkey shooting down a Russian plane and killing a pilot and a rescuer. Soros has to get his pipe past Putin’ airbase, and that’s not likely. So we have your old fashioned “Mexican Standoff”.
Obama, in the meantime, has depleted our military to the point where we couldn’t touch the Russians if we had to. The Russians buzz our ships tossing bags of urine and tell Kerry it was raining.
The Russians insist we are assisting the radical Islamists, and there is no way to dispute that because we don’t know- Hillary lost the E-mails. What a mess..
