    A breakaway Pakistani faction of the militant Taliban group has claimed responsibility for an Easter Sunday bombing in a park in the eastern city of Lahore that killed 65 people. Ahsanullah Ahsan, spokesman for Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, told the Associated Press that a suicide bomber with the faction deliberately targeted the Christian community. The explosion took place near the children's rides in Gulshan-e-Iqbal park — which was crowded with Christians celebrating Easter — local police chief Haider Ashraf said. He said the explosion appeared to have been a suicide bombing, but investigations were ongoing.

Sean MacFarland, the US commander in charge of the coalition fighting Islamic State (ISIS) in Iraq and Syria, said Monday that carpet bombing the terrorists would be "inconsistent with our values." The remark is seen as being aimed at Republican presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). In December, Cruz pledged to "utterly destroy ISIS," and vowed: "We will carpet-bomb them into oblivion." He even hinted at the use of nuclear weapons, saying: "I don't know if sand can glow in the dark, but we're going to find out." After being asked to explain why carpet bombing would...

    Why hasn’t the U.S. bombed the oil wells that ISIS controls into oblivion by now? Would you believe that it is because the Obama administration “didn’t want to do environmental damage”? Former Deputy Director of the CIA Michael Morell has publicly admitted that we have purposely avoided damaging the main source of income for ISIS, and his explanation for why we were doing this is utterly bizarre. But at this point what could the Obama administration say that would actually make sense? Everyone now knows that ISIS has been making hundreds of millions of dollars selling oil in Turkey, and...

    Potentially lethal bombings at two sites in Hanover, Germany were defused on Tuesday night, just days after Muslim terrorists carried out lethal coordinated attacks in Paris. The similar nature of targets selected in the attempted bombings Tuesday make it likely to have been an attempt by Islamists to repeat the carnage in Paris on Friday, in which 129 people were murdered. Shortly after the German national soccer stadium in Hanover was evacuated on Tuesday night, reports revealed the cause: an ambulance loaded with explosives was discovered parked outside. The discovery at the HDI Arena came just before an international friendly...

A police spokesman said the man - earlier named as Adem Karadag - was the figure in a yellow shirt seen on CCTV leaving a bag at the shrine. Thai police had earlier said neither of two men in their custody were the main suspects for the 17 August attack. The motive for the bombing, which killed 20 people, remains unclear.

The bombing, which was claimed by Islamic State, could further escalate sectarian strife in the kingdom, where anti-Shi'ite sentiment has been stoked by a military campaign against Iranian-allied Houthi militias in neighboring Yemen since March. The Interior Ministry said a suicide bomber disguised in women's clothes blew himself up outside the al-Anoud mosque's entrance in the city...

    After 11 hours of deliberations over two days, a federal jury on Wednesday found Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a failing college student and the youngest child in a dispersed Russian immigrant family, guilty of the 2013 bombings at the Boston Marathon, the worst act of terrorism on American soil since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The bombings almost two years ago transformed one of the world’s most prestigious road races on a glorious spring afternoon into a scene of carnage with bodies strewn across Boylston Street, giving the nation a horrifying glimpse into the consequences of homegrown, self-taught terrorism. The bombs,...

    Trooper Robert McCarthy of the state bomb squad revealed at trial that Tsarnaev abandoned three bombs. Two at the site of a police shootout; a third in the driver's seat of the stolen 2013 Mercedes SUV Tsarnaev drove while fleeing...in a Tupperware container packed with "2-3 pounds" of blast powder and "multiple fuse lengths taped together." One of two undetonated bombs was a length of metal pipe, and the other a pipe's elbow joint.....an improvised grenade...very heavy so as to stop in the spot where the bombers intended. The Chechnyan bomber brothers, in the US on expired student visas, engaged...

    Yemen's crisis is getting worse and then some. Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies have started bombing rebel positions inside Yemen. The Sunni Kingdom added that it would do "anything necessary" to deter the Iran-backed Shiite rebels who are taking over Yemen and trying to oust US-backed President Abd Rabbah Mansur Hadi. A Saudi source told Reuters that ground troops might be needed in Yemen to "restore order." Saudi Arabia is reportedly contributing as many as 150,000 troops and 100 warplanes to the campaign against the Houthis.

    Nearly five years after a powerful truck bomb ripped through a U.S. military housing complex in Saudi Arabia – killing 19 Americans and wounding 372 – terrorism charges have been brought against 13 members of the pro-Iran Saudi Hizballah, or “Party of God.” Another, as yet unidentified, person who is linked to the Lebanese Hizballah has also been charged in the attack. According to the indictment returned today by a Federal Grand Jury in Alexandria, Virginia, nine of the fourteen are charged with 46 separate criminal counts including: conspiracy to kill Americans and employees of the United States, to use...
  • Chicago-area activist given 18 months in prison for lying about terrorism role

    A Chicago-area activist was sentenced to 18 months in prison Thursday for failing to disclose her convictions for bombings in Israel when she applied to be a U.S. citizen. Backed by dozens of supporters, Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, 67, of Evergreen Park, will remain free while she appeals. She was sentenced in Detroit's federal court. Judge Gershwin Drain noted that Odeh was a "terrorist" decades ago but has changed her ways. Nonetheless, he said she lied. Odeh faces mandatory deportation once she is done serving her time. Decades ago, Odeh was convicted of two bombings in Jerusalem, including one that killed...
  • ‘Tit for Tat’ - Obama Admin official describes Bulgarian attack as ‘tit for tat’ reprisal

    In the aftermath of the bombing of a bus carrying Israeli tourists in Bulgaria, the Obama administration included an Iranian-American anti-Israel group in a White House meeting and characterized the terror attack as a “tit-for-tat” reprisal by Iran. Wednesday, officials from the National Iranian-American Council (NIAC) attended a White House roundtable event for Iranian-American community leaders that featured Valerie Jarrett, one of President Obama’s closest advisers. NIAC bills itself as an Iranian-American community organization, but its work focuses on softening U.S. policy toward Iran. It advocates removing sanctions on Iran and attempted to scuttle Dennis Ross’s promotion to an Iran...

    Anything short of that really doesn't cut it anymore... time to make this terror game look like a lot less fun to any other losers thinking of giving it a try. Don't think terrorists can deterred, when so anxious to meet Allah? Maybe the ones we capture alive need to die painfully -very painfully- take a long time doing it, and make sure everybody over-there-where-they-came-from know all about what happened to them. There IS a point where the 21 virgins just won't seem worth it... perhaps we need to find that point. And maybe -JUST MAYBE- we should listen...
