    Police have named the man accused of stabbing two people inside the Mall of America during a botched robbery attempt Sunday. Officials identified him as Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman, 20, according to a local CBS report. Abdirahaman snuck into a men’s fitting room at the Minnesota mall and tried to swipe something from a customer’s belongings while the man was outside the fitting room modeling clothes for his family. But he caught Abdirahaman in the act, and the would-be thief pulled a knife and stabbed him, authorities said. Hearing the victim’s screams, his family rushed to his aid, but Abdirahaman slashed...

  • French politicians protest over Muslim street prayers in Paris

    BBC News ^ | November 10, 2017
    About 100 French politicians have marched on a street in a Paris suburb in protest at Muslims holding Friday prayers in public. The politicians, wearing tricolour sashes of office and singing the national anthem, disrupted about 200 worshippers on a street in Clichy. Police kept the two groups apart but some scuffles broke out. Critics say the prayers are an unacceptable use of public space in France's strictly secular system. The worshippers, however, say they have nowhere else to go since the town hall took over the room they used for prayers back in March. France has about five million...

    The London Daily Mail ^ | November 10, 2017 | Molly Rose Pike
    The man behind a website to help Muslim men find 'second wives' has insisted the service can 'empower' women. Azad Chaiwala, from Sunderland, set up SecondWife.com, for the 'small section' of Muslims who are looking to have multiple wives. Appearing on ITV's This Morning, Mr Chaiwala said his website would discourage women from being mistresses and instead 'empower' them by legitimising the relationship in a way that allows it to be regarded as more than just an affair. Viewers were shocked by Azed's beliefs, saying he was using the website to justify cheating. One tweeted: 'He says it empowers women......
  • 'Drunk On Power': Did Marine Drill Instructor Torment Muslim Recruits?

    11/09/2017 9:36:57 AM PST · by detective · 49 replies
    Gunnery Sgt. Joseph Felix was drunk on power all the time -- and on his trademark Fireball Whisky sometimes as well, a military prosecutor argued on Wednesday. After eight days of trial and testimony from dozens of witnesses, the defense and prosecution made closing arguments in the high-profile case of Felix, a former drill instructor at Parris Island, South Carolina, who is accused of harassing and assaulting many recruits but saving his worst and most creative torments for a few who identified as Muslim. Beginning Thursday morning, an eight-member military jury will deliberate over whether, among other charges, Felix forced...

    BEIRUT - Saudi Arabia accused Lebanon on Monday of declaring war against it because of aggression by the Iran-backed Lebanese Shi‘ite group Hezbollah, a dramatic escalation of a crisis threatening to destabilize the tiny Arab country. Lebanon has been thrust to the center of regional rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran since the Saudi-allied Lebanese politician Saad al-Hariri quit as prime minister on Saturday, blaming Iran and Hezbollah in his resignation speech. Faulting the Hariri-led administration for failing to take action against Hezbollah during a year in office, Sabhan said “there are those who will stop (Hezbollah) and make it...

    More than half a million foreign nationals have entered the United States since 2005 with the visa lottery program which allowed a recent New York terror suspect to come to the U.S. Roughly 509,700 foreign nationals have entered the U.S. between 2005 to 2015 using the program, not counting their spouses, children and chain-migration relatives, a Breitbart News analysis reveals. The U.S. has even brought in 25,976 co-nationals of suspected jihadi Sayfullo Saipov, despite their country of Uzbekistan being listed by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency as a terrorist hotspot. The Diversity Visa Lottery gives out 50,000 visas...

    The visa lottery has triggered a hidden wave of chain migration, and has delivered almost 5 million foreign nationals to the United States since 1994, says a new analysis. New research by the Center for Immigration Studies reveals the enormous chain-migration impact of the visa lottery program, where 50,000 visas every year are given to foreign nationals from a multitude of countries. The countries include those with terrorist problems, including Afghanistan, Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Yemen, and Uzbekistan. Foreign nationals from eligible countries can win the visa lottery if they...

    There are about 3.35 million Muslims in the United States right now, according to recent Pew Research Center’s Factank figures. But by 2050, that particular population is projected to grow — from about 1 percent of the U.S. population to about 2.1 percent. If it does, that means America will be home to more Muslims than Jews. Just something to think about, post New York City terror attack — a terror attack that we now know was committed by a radicalized Muslim who professed allegiance to ISIS. President Donald Trump, in a tweet, wrote: “We must not allow ISIS to...

    Sayfullo Saipov’s neighbors and acquaintances have been coming forward to paint a portrait of the suspected New York City terrorist. One Tampa neighbor casually dropped a remarkable detail deep in a Washington Post story on Wednesday: a group of “about 30 men, young and old, gathered at Saipov’s house to pray” on “most weekends.”
  • Why do Muslim terrorists yell 'Allahu akbar' when they attack?

    American Thinker ^ | 11/03/2017 | James Arlandson
    It's not complicated, except for our overpaid intellectual news media betters and the punditocracy. For example, Huffington Post contributor Carol Kuruvilla informs us that the phrase is used in Muslim prayers and affirms the supremacy of God.  She even points out that American Christians use it, though in English.  Her main point: It's harmless. All this is true, except the misleading statement about Christians.  The problem with her analysis is that it overlooks an additional reason for its use: warfare. It's in the hadith.  In this one, Khaibar (or Khaybar) was a Jewish settlement. Narrated 'Abdul 'Aziz: Anas said, 'When Allah's Apostle invaded Khaibar, we offered...
  • The Rise of Soft-Target Terror Attacks Is a Symptom of Police Success (Terrorism the new normal)

    NBC News ^ | November 2, 2017 | Frank Figliuzzi
    s this our new normal? During my FBI career as a Special Agent and ultimately Assistant Director, the FBI, police, and domestic security agencies viewed terrorist incidents through a black and white, binary lens. If we “allowed” an attack to happen, we had failed. If we prevented an attack, we had succeeded. Yet, the increase in lone wolf, soft-target attacks — particularly attacks where trucks and cars are driven into large, vulnerable crowds — can actually be viewed as a symptom of our success. The Halloween terror attack that occurred in New York City raises an important question: Do we...

    Earlier this year, a final settlement was reached in the war on the NYPD’s counterterrorist Islamic surveillance. The Manhattan courtroom where the lawfare effort to dismantle the NYPD’s ability to stop terrorist attacks was heard is blocks away from the site of the latest Islamic terrorist attack in New York.
