The Hebrew Israelites seem to be the group that kicked the whole Covington Catholic schoolmess off but who are they? That leads onto the whole discussion of why Judaism and Jews are indigenous to Israel and what Jewish indigenous identity is all about!
The 8th episode of Shire Network News was first broadcast on July 10th 2005, immediately after the multiple suicide bombings across London on the morning of July 7th by a gang of Islamic terrorists. The entire episode discusses this including the first appearance on SNN by Andrew Ian Dodge who became a regular contributor. Andrew passed away from cancer in 2014, may his memory be a blessing.
In this special edition of Shire Network News, there will be no blog news. Humour is inappropriate just now. We have a special extended interview with London-based blogger Andrew Ian Dodge, and the Full of Crap Report from Laurence Simon.
Also, there is a special introduction which hearkens back, not to the dark days of 1940, but to an even earlier episode of English history.

For the first time in years Shire Network News is back on the iTunes Podcast system. My periodic commentary, Brian’s Forest Talks, is also up as its own Podcast and there is a final, combined, feed that will carry episodes of both the Shire Network News archive and my chats interspersed as and when they come out.
First broadcast July 3rd 2005. Original show notes via Archive.org so don’t be surprised if some links aren’t working.
There are interviews with Pastor Danny Nalliah, of the Melbourne-based Catch the Fire Ministries who has been found guilty of villifying Islam, and with the Zimbabwean Pundit about the situation in his homeland and what web-based activists are doing about it.
