  • Beethoven disrupts anti-migrant rally in Germany

    German police are taking legal action against theatre staff in Mainz for disrupting an anti-migrant rally by singing Beethoven's Ode to Joy. About 300 people gathered over the weekend near the theatre in the south-western city to protest against the government's "chaotic" asylum policy. But speakers were interrupted by the theatre staff singing "All people will be brothers" from the symphony. Police say the right to free assembly is guaranteed by the constitution. They argue that it is therefore a criminal offence to disrupt such events.

    As the United States debates how to properly vet 10,000 Syrian refugees expected to resettle here, employees with Samaritan’s Purse are stationed on the frontlines in Greece, working to be a “face of compassion” for refugees fleeing war and terror. Ken Isaacs, vice president of programs and government relations for Samaritan’s Purse, spent a week in Greece, where the Christian organization has deployed employees and contractors to the region to assist scores of refugees flowing into the country, with hopes of continuing deeper into Europe. There, the group’s workers meet refugees arriving by rubber rafts on Greek islands and provide...

    After factoring in family reunifications, the actual number of migrants could exceed 10 million, and some believe that Germany's Muslim population is on track to nearly quadruple to an astonishing 20 million by 2020. N24 television news reports that up to 50% of the asylum seekers arriving in Germany have gone into hiding and their whereabouts are unknown by German authorities. "It cannot be that offenders continue to fill the police files, hurt us physically... and there are no consequences. ... We are losing control of the streets." — Tania Kambouri, a German police officer. "We are not excluding anyone,...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has arrived in Tehran for talks with Iranian leaders about the crisis in Syria.

The violence has displaced millions more. On...

"Many of the refugees are fleeing the terror of the Islamic State and want to live in peace and freedom, but at the same time they come from cultures where hatred of Jews and intolerance are an integral part."

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad warned the Obama administration today that if Iran's nuclear facilities are attacked, the U.S. will face a war that "would know no boundaries." He said that Iran is on the brink of becoming a nuclear power, and warned Israel and the U.S. against attacking its nuclear facilities. Asked about the possibility of a U.S.-supported Israeli air strike against Iran, the fiery Iranian leader said an attack would be considered an act of war, and suggested the U.S. is unprepared for the consequences.
  • Fatah Facebook Inciting Murder of Gershon Mesika

    On Sunday morning, a female terrorist was attempting to stab a girl in the bus station at the junction of the Samaria Regional Brigade, when former Samaria Regional Council head Gershon Mesika noticed the incident and drove his car in her direction to try and stop her. Mesika’s car ran into a ditch after hitting the terrorist. At that point, according to Elyakim Gross from Itamar, he, Gross, shot two bullets into the terrorist’s body, and a soldier who had rushed over also shot her twice. The “official Fatah” Facebook page offered an entirely different narrative:

The study was composed by the institute's founder David Albright, and was part of a more comprehensive study on the worldwide inventory of plutonium. The study estimated that Israel produced plutonium at a rapid pace in the past 50 years since the inception of its nuclear reactor in Dimona, acquiring 660 kilograms of plutonium, taking into account an estimation error of 150 kilograms. A single nuclear bomb requires 3-5 kg of plutonium, the study estimated....

    Soldiers from the Bundeswehr (German army) might be called on to support police inside Germany as a precautionary measure against terrorist attacks, Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said on Tuesday. "If we had a situation like the one in Paris, perhaps with attacks in three to four locations, we will have to think whether our police capabilities would be sufficient," Schaeuble said at a meeting in Duesseldorf, the Rheinische Post reported. But coalition allies from the Social Democratic Party (SPD) quickly pushed back against the idea of using soldiers within Germany in this role. ...

    Suggestion for John Kerry: if traveling makes you so tired that you say things undermining the war against radical Islamic terrorism, stay home on Nantucket and conduct your diplomacy by Skype . . . On today's Morning Joe, here's how Mark Halperin explained Kerry's despicable statement about the "legitimacy" and "rationale" of the Charlie Hebdo attacks: "Secretary Kerry has a history when he's tired in particular after he hurtles around the world of speaking imprecisely." Was Kerry speaking "imprecisely"—or did he let the truth slip of precisely how he and President Obama really feel? View the video here.

    French President Francois Hollande today promised that "France will remain a country of freedom," defending his decision to honor a commitment to accept migrants and refugees despite Friday's deadly terrorist attacks in Paris. “Life should resume fully,” Hollande told a gathering of the country's mayors, who gave him a standing ovation. “What would France be without its museums, without its terraces, its concerts, its sports competitions? "France should remain as it is. Our duty is to carry on our lives." In the same spirit, he added, "30,000 refugees will be welcomed over the next two years. Our country has the...

    Tell us something we don’t know, Mr. President. We could have guessed as much by the puny air campaign more worthy of the Grand Duchy of Fenwick in The Mouse That Roared than by what was once the world’s only superpower. We wouldn’t be mounting any air campaign at all, had not the radical Islamists of the “JV team” Islamic State had not cut off the heads of two American journalists, Steven Sotloff and James Foley. Our delusional commander-in-chief, who still believes the massacre at Ft. Hood by jihadist Nidal Hasan is a case of “workplace violence” and that...
  • Margaret Carlson: Maybe Potential Terrorists Will Americanize and Not Carry Out Plots

    There's been a lot of arrant nonsense spoken since the Paris attacks, but Margaret Carlson's might just take the cake . . . On today's Morning Joe, Bloomberg columnist Carlson suggested that because the US is better than Europe at assimilation, potential terrorists sneaking into our country might not carry out their plots. Said Carlson: "maybe they become Americanized, maybe the anger goes away. Maybe what they snuck in to do they're not going to do because we do have an acceptance of these people." Great point, Margaret. If only we'd had a little longer to hug it out with...

    Editor's Note: This piece was coauthored by Tim Graham.After seven years of media adoration, President Obama was stunned and prickly. At a press conference in Antalya, Turkey, American reporters kept asking him why he was declaring his anti-ISIS strategy was working, when clearly it isn't. NBC's Chuck Todd found Obama "extremely defensive and almost not yet realizing that many of the reporters in that room, they're channeling the public in this case." For seven years, we've watched the White House press corps channel Obama back to Obama. But this time, on the heels of the Paris massacre, they were in...

  • Proposed law to stop terror suspects from buying guns in U.S. faces NRA, GOP opposition

    The NRA -- and their gun-loving Republican cohorts -- are refusing once more to stop terrorists intent on getting armed in the U.S.A. A legal loophole allows suspected terrorists on the government's no-fly list to legally buy guns, but a bill to fix that will likely wither on the vine. The federal Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act, even in the wake of last week’s terrorist killing of 129 people in Paris, remains a long shot due to its rabid pro-gun opponents. "Anything which they feel restricts the use or the ability to retain a gun they’re opposed...

    Results of research showing the 2015 index for relations between Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel, published partially for the first time on Tuesday, show just how far the Arab population supports and identifies with openly pro-terror organizations. The research, conducted by Professor Sami Samucha, reveals that no less than 57% of Arab citizens of Israel say they feel the radical Islamic Movement in Israel faithfully represents them. Significantly, the movement was outlawed on Tuesday for its long history of inciting terrorism, organizing and funding violent riots on the Temple Mount, and its close connections with Hamas. ...
