    Is this the Dallas cop killer at a New Black Panthers march? In 2009 and 2010, lawyers working at the United States Justice Department warned top Obama political appointees and other Justice Department officials about the dangerous threats of New Black Panthers to kill police officers and other whites. I was one of those lawyers who delivered those warnings.Our warnings came in the context of the Voting Rights Act case I and other lawyers brought against the New Black Panthers on behalf of the United States in 2009, a case the Obama administration ultimately abandoned.

    The maximum damage done to the image of Islam today is by the international media which is bombarding misconceptions about it day and night using an array of strategies. This was affirmed by renowned Islamic scholar Dr Zakir Naik on Thursday night, June 16, as part of his lecture 'Media & Islam "International media, be it print, audio, video, or online, use a number of strategies to malign Islam by first picking up the black sheep of the Muslim community, and portraying them as though they are exemplary Muslims." Media is the most important tool rather the most dangerous weapon...

    Islamic gunmen shouting "Allahu Akbar" attacked an upscale cafe in the Bangladeshi capital, killing 20 people inside, before police stormed the building on Saturday and rescued 13 hostages, officials said. The attack, claimed by Islamic State, marks a major escalation in a campaign by Islamic militants over the past 18 months that had targeted mostly individuals advocating a secular or liberal approach in mostly Muslim Bangladesh. Six gunmen were killed during the police operation and one was captured, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said in a TV broadcast. "Most of (the hostages) were killed mercilessly by sharp weapons last night," before...

    Islamic Jihadists connected to ISIS have slaughtered 20 Foreigners taken hostage at a bakery in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Security Forces from Bangladesh stormed the Bakery, killing all but one of the terrorists. But the 20 Foreigners, apparently mostly Italian and Japanese, were found dead, their throats slit. Reports indicate 13 hostages were “rescued,” but other reports indicate the Islamic Terrorists may have spared those 13 hostages because they could recite verses from the Koran, while those killed could not. The Bangladeshi English Newspaper “The Daily Star” reports that fact, as told by the father of one of the hostages . ....

    For more than two years, a spate of brutal murders has rocked the South Asian nation. At first the killings had a clear pattern, targeting well-known secular writers in the capital, Dhaka. The attacks seemed designed to silence those who dared to criticize Islam. One of the most high-profile of these -- the murder of the Bangladeshi-American writer Avijit Royin 2014 -- took place right outside Dhaka's annual book fair. Then in April this year, a well-known LGBT activist and his friend were murdered while they were at home.In recent weeks these attacks extended into the countryside, increased in frequency,...

    After a year in India, Zaharaddeen Muhammed, 27, knows enough Hindi to understand what bander means. Monkey. But it isn't even the daily derogatory comments that make him doubt his decision to swap his university in Nigeria for a two-year master's degree programme in chemistry at Noida International University. Nor is it the questions about personal hygiene, the unsolicited touching of his hair or the endless staring. It is his failure to interact with Indian people on a deeper level.

    What sent EgyptAir flight 804 plummeting into the Mediterranean Sea last month, remains a mystery. Egyptian investigators have failed to extract any information from the badly-damaged memory chips of the crucial black boxes. Defeated, Egypt is now sending both the cockpit voice recorder and the flight data recorder to the BEA in France for analysis. The BEA -- the French version of the NTSB -- are considered some the best in the world at analyzing this type of equipment. In a statement released on Thursday, EgyptAir said the French will "carry out repair and removal of salt accumulations." "Then (the...
