  • Polish President Duda says hopes Turkey will join EU

    10/17/2017 10:09:28 AM PDT · by Berlin_Freeper · 42 replies ^ | October 17, 2017 | Reuters Staff
    Poland hopes Turkey will eventually join the European Union, Polish President Andrzej Duda said on Tuesday, days ahead of an EU summit which will discuss the frayed relations between Brussels and Ankara. The EU, particularly heavyweight member Germany, has become increasingly critical of Turkey since President Tayyip Erdogan launched large-scale purges of state institutions, the military, the judiciary and academia after a failed coup in July 2016.
  • New York jihad bomber found guilty, New York Times identifies him only as “New Jersey man”

    A federal jury convicted Ahmad Khan Rahimi, a loner from New Jersey drawn to online calls to jihad, of setting the explosives in the Chelsea neighborhood that blew out windows and sent shrapnel flying into buildings, cars and people during a two-day bombing campaign in and around New York City last year…. Mr. Rahimi carried multiple bombs — nine in all — but most did not explode. The first was set early that morning in a garbage can at the finish line of a United States Marine Corps charity race in Seaside Park, N.J. The race’s start time was delayed,...

    Wildfires have killed at least 39 people across Portugal and Spain as hundreds of blazes were fanned by strong winds caused by a hurricane, authorities said on Monday. Thirty-five people - including a one-month-old baby - in Portugal have died and dozens have been injured, most of them firefighters, during fires raging in central and northern areas of the country.  Portugal's civil protection service said as of Monday morning, firefighters were fighting 145 separate blazes across the country, dozens of which are considered to still be serious.  In the northwestern Spanish region of Galicia, authorities said that four people had died,...

    SALZGITTER, Germany—Late this summer, Nadine Langer took her six-year old to her first day at school. The girl was one of two German children in her class, she said, amid 20, mostly Syrian, refugees. “I am not against foreigners,” said Ms. Langer, 41. “But there is a point where we have to wonder who is integrating whom.” Germany’s 2015 refugee crisis has largely disappeared from the headlines. But in this and other midsize towns, it is continuing to unfold, putting communities under stress, pressuring local coffers and feeding concerns about safety, jobs and the quality of education. Some 140,000 asylum...

    If Democrats would stop shooting people gun deaths would drop by 90% If the shooter in Orlando doesn’t represent all Muslims, why does the shooter in Las Vegas represent all gun owners? When the bullets started flying in Las Vegas none of the police officers took a knee. SNL’s Michael Che called President Trump a “Cheap Cracker.” If a conservative comedian referred to President Obama with a racial slur on national TV would they still have a job?

    The shocking weekend assault of a 75-year-old woman left her with head injuries so terrible that the surgeon who treated her says they’re among the worst he’s seen in his medical career in Windsor. “In my 12 years in Windsor, this is the most severe beating I’ve seen,” said Dr. Balraj Jhawar, a neurosurgeon at the Ouellette Campus of Windsor Regional Hospital. Sara Anne Widholm, a grandmother and Riverside resident, remained in critical condition Tuesday afternoon. Jhawar said he is speaking publicly about the case because he believes the community needs to know. He was told by Widholm’s family that...

    FULL TITLE: EXCLUSIVE – Gay Porn Kingpin Michael Lucas: Muslim Homophobia Becoming ‘Very Inconvenient’ for Liberals NEW YORK, NY — Homophobia in the Muslim world is “becoming very inconvenient for liberals because liberals are apologists for Islam,” Michael Lucas, a gay pornographic film star and director, charged in a radio interview Sunday. Lucas slammed liberals for being largely silent amid increasing reports of gay people being persecuted in the Muslim world. And he said that he has noticed a trend in which the left-wing focuses on a specific country’s leadership instead of “political Islam” when attributing blame for anti-gay policies...

Amen.” The world heard you, courageous people of Poland, even though the international media stubbornly pretended not to. “Thousands of Polish Catholics formed human chains on the country’s borders Saturday, begging God “to save Poland and the world” in an event many viewed as a spiritual weapon against the “Islamisation” of Europe.” (AFP, Oct. 7, 2017)

    Another 9/11, another Brussels, another Paris? According to indictments unsealed yesterday by the Department of Justice, a three-man Islamist terror cell plotted versions of all the above for another attack on New York City. Before they could carry it out, an FBI undercover agent discovered the plot in 2016, then coordinated an international manhunt to capture all three erstwhile terrorists: The alleged scheme was more nefarious than many: The group, which wanted to attack Times Square and the New York City subway system, claimed to have been in touch with an Islamic State affiliate to obtain the official sanction...

    The ideological politics of the Obama years have yet to be challenged. Justice Department activism on behalf of mosques and Muslims has been ramping up for years. Under President Obama, ideological activists inside the Department leveraged federal power to help mosques fight local zoning boards. Under President Trump, there are disturbing signs that the activist lawyers pushing these polices are yet to be reined in. A federal judge recently dismissed a Trump Justice Department discrimination case, United States v. County of Culpeper, originally brought by the Obama Justice Department. In settlement proceedings, the mosque accepted expense money and a “pump...

    Jihad Watch reported on September 28 about this incident: a woman got on an airplane, saw dogs on it, and demanded they be removed because she had, she said, “life-threatening allergies.” When she could not produce documentation of that fact, she was herself removed from the plane. “She was later arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, failure to obey a reasonable and lawful order, disturbing the peace, obstructing and hindering a police officer, and resisting arrest.” It turned out that she was a Muslim and a professor of Islamic studies, which was noteworthy because Islam has a notable hostility to...

    Canadian police arrested a man on suspicion of terrorist acts in the city of Edmonton early Sunday after a police officer was struck with a car and stabbed outside a football game, and four people were later “deliberately” hit and injured by a U-Haul truck. The 30-year-old suspect, who was not further identified, had driven both vehicles, according to the Edmonton police chief, Rod Knecht. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada called the spree a terrorist attack. Mr. Knecht said that police officers had found an Islamic State flag in the car that hit the police officer.
