REMINDER THAT THE UK RULED ONE FIFTH OF THE WORLD, WE DON’T NEED TO WIN NO SINGING COMPETITION TO PROVE OURSELVES TO EUROPE
Eurovision hasn’t even happened yet and we’re already coming up with excuses to why we didn’t win.

„—stupid Daddy, I’m not a kid anymore!! I’m three years old!!”
I would first like to thank you all for your continued love and support!
As I’ve mentioned, I’ve been trying to raise money to pay for my last semester of college. Well, it turns out I have until mid-June to come up with the amount because I won’t be taking classes until July.
This doesn’t really change my situation though because I still won’t be able to come up with the amount I still owe on my own. My family is still dealing with the financial fallout from my dad’s medical bills from his cancer treatments. It’s why we’re hurting financially in the first place.
On top of that, I had to replace a fuel pump and alternator in my car recently. These repairs wiped out what little money I had set aside for my tuition fund this month.
Despite the setbacks, I am glad to say I am now $1253 away from what I need to pay for tuition. If you have some money to spare, please click the link above or the “donate” button on my “about” section on my blog. Every amount helps! (Yes, even $1 donations help!) Please reblog and signal boost this so others can see and maybe help!
A Health Ministry inspector poured bleach over pots full of food in a Sudanese restaurant in Tel Aviv Sunday night.
The inspector, from the ministry’s district office for Tel Aviv, was participating in a raid by police and municipal inspectors on illegal businesses owned by African migrants. Altogether, the raid shut down 10 businesses in the city’s Neveh Sha’anan neighborhood, confiscating their equipment and welding the doors shut. The equipment was then loaded onto vans by other African migrants who had been hired as contract workers.
Many diners saw the inspector pouring bleach on the food, and one, asylum-seeker Aladin Abaker from Sudan’s Darfur region, posted photos of the incident on his Facebook page. He also described his feelings of humiliation.
“Everyone − except the destroyers − was in tears from the humiliation,” he wrote. “The waitress told us, ‘I’ve seen very harsh things in my life, like torture in Sinai, but this humiliated me more than what happened to me in Sinai.”
Abaker accused the inspector of “insensitivity to people and their culture, which sees food as a sacred thing that must be respected,” and said the raid was aimed at “embittering our lives so we’ll return to Africa ‘voluntarily.’”
Altogether, he said, more than 200 kilograms of meat, chicken and fish and over 500 prepared meals were destroyed.
The inspectors said they didn’t know where the meat came from and therefore feared for the diners’ health, Abaker wrote. “We told them: But this is the only place we’ve eaten all our meals for four years now, and none of us ever had stomach problems. Even whites eat here.”
The Health Ministry responded that inspectors had discovered “deplorable sanitary conditions, food stored under unsuitable conditions and temperatures, and food from unknown sources. In order to preserve the public’s health and that of the diners themselves, it was decided to destroy the food immediately. As part of the process of destroying the food, chemicals suitable to this purpose are used. It should be noted that this was a routine process of food destruction that is no different from other destructions of food/meat.”
Tel Aviv’s deputy city manager, Ruby Zelof, said the raids were carried out “to eradicate the undesirable phenomenon of businesses operating illegally, with sanitation and safety problems and illegal connections to electricity and water, and sales of alcoholic beverages without permits.”

Interior Minister Eli Yishai said the African asylum seekers threaten “the Zionist dream,” adding, “Jobs will root them here.”
