    But less than 48 hours later the Gateway Pundit reports that the U.S. government did, in fact, apprehend four suspected terrorists with ties to the IS organization on the border. Congressman Jason Chaffetz broke this shocking news Wednesday that four known terrorists were apprehended at the US border in Texas on September 10 – the day before the 13th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks. Chaffetz questioned Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on whether he is “aware of any apprehensions of suspected or known terrorists.” Johnson dodged the question. Tonight, Rep. Chaffetz told Megyn Kelly there were four terrorists arrested crossing...

    A MUSLIM leader chose the hallowed steps of Lakemba’s War Memorial to preach outrage and condemnation over the anti-terror raids across Sydney. In front of 300 angry protesters, controversial Hizt ut-Tahrir spokesman Uthman Badar warned of a growing anger within the Islamic ­community and said it was time to stop the victimisation. “We are tired of being made scapegoats. The government is the terrorist,” he declared to the gathering, many waving anti-government placards. Protesters packed the lawns of the Canterbury council-controlled RSL reserve — booked by rally organisers for one hour from 7pm — as a group of speakers branded...

    Australian police are conducting what they called the largest counter-terrorism operation in the nation's history, with more than 800 police officers participating. Officials announced early Thursday that 15 people had been detained and one person charged "with serious terrorism-related offenses" allegedly related to plans for at least one beheading. The action comes less than a week after the Australian government raised its National Terrorism Public Alert level to "high" from "medium." Officials did not immediately offer details about what prompted Thursday's mass operation in the northwest suburbs of Sydney and in Brisbane. The suspects were planning to grab a random...

    SYDNEY — Police said they thwarted a plot to carry out beheadings in Australia by supporters of the radical Islamic State group by detaining 15 people and raiding more than a dozen properties across Sydney on Thursday. The raids involving 800 federal and state police officers — the largest in the country’s history — came in response to intelligence that an Islamic State group leader in the Middle East was calling on Australian supporters to kill, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said.

More than 800 officers launched the raids as part of Operation Appleby in suburbs across Sydney's west and north-west, with a further 70 police involved in raids on properties in Brisbane's south.

The Democrat & Chronicle reports that Elfgeeh is the nephew of Abad Elfgeeh, an ice-cream shop owner who was arrested in Brooklyn in 2003, after being accused of being deeply involved in a terrorism network.

    A Rochester, New York, man has been indicted on charges of trying to provide material support to the Islamic State militant group and attempting to murder U.S. soldiers, the U.S. Justice Department said on Tuesday. A federal grand jury in Rochester handed down a seven-count indictment against Mufid Elfgeeh, 30, following an investigation by the FBI's Rochester Joint Terrorism Task Force, a Justice Department statement said. According to court records, Elfgeeh, beginning last year, tried to help three people - two of whom were cooperating with the FBI - to travel to Syria to fight for Islamic State, a Sunni...

    When American journalist Theo Curtis was released in the Golan Heights late last month after being held in Syria by an Islamist group for nearly two years, a pair of FBI agents were waiting for him. One of the agents called Curtis’s mother to tell her that her son was finally safe.

So right off you know one thing we will not do: destroy it. The only thing more reliable than the habit of American presidents of starting wars is the inability of wartime presidents to achieve their goals. President George W.

He invaded Iraq to eliminate Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction, while promising that the creation of "free Iraq" would be "a watershed...

    Turkey has made a decision to not only refuse to join the “broad coalition” against ISIS that President Obama promised Wednesday night is more than just a major slap in face for Obama and America. It also presents an obstacle to the success of the president’s promised “degradation and destruction of the caliphate.

    While the Islamic State group is getting the most attention now, another band of extremists in Syria — a mix of hardened jihadis from Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria and Europe — poses a more direct and imminent threat to the United States, working with Yemeni bomb-makers to target U.S. aviation, American officials say. At the center is a cell known as the Khorasan group, a cadre of veteran al-Qaida fighters from Afghanistan and Pakistan who traveled to Syria to link up with the al-Qaida affiliate there, the Nusra Front.

    resident Obama came into office in 2009 telling the American people he would end the wars against terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. Six years later, facing a broader and more lethal terrorist threat, he is now telling us why we need to go to war again. To say Obama can't seem to make up his mind in the war on terror (a designation his administration stopped using the day he entered the Oval Office) is putting it mildly. If anything, his naive plan of withdrawal and retreat, and the way it was carried out in the face of a growing...

    The strategy that President Obama laid out Wednesday night to "degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL," is incoherent, inconsistent and, ultimately, non-credible. A year ago, Obama and John Kerry were straining at the leash to launch air strikes on Syrian President Bashar Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons in "killing his own people." But when Americans rose as one to demand that we stay out of Syria, Obama hastily erased his "red line" and announced a new policy of not getting involved in "somebody else's civil war." Now, after videos of the beheadings of...

The terrorist army that calls itself the Islamic State is certainly trying to build a state -- and not just a state, but a super state or caliphate.

    President Obama sounded like President Bush in his speech last night, ordering military strikes against ISIS. Not surprisingly the left gushed over the speech, declaring it “nuanced.” Pointless or a day late and a dollar short are more accurate descriptions. ISIS has been a growing threat for months, having been dismissed by Obama as the “JV” team. A handful of airstrikes and 475 “boots on the ground” aren’t going to deter a group like ISIS.

Edmund Burke once described the potency of fear saying, “No passion so effectually robs the mind of all its powers of acting and reasoning as fear.” Burke’s observations ring especially true in today’s hypersensitive, hyper-connected world of 24-hour news channels and social media, in which the flames of fear can be fanned in ways only dreamed of in ages past.

It should have been front page news on every newspaper across the country, with preparations made to keep people out of the downtowns of the largest cities on September 11 in case the terrorists try another attack with suicide planes. Instead, this administration is more interested in saving face than protecting innocent Americans, downplaying the threat. Incredulously, despite photos...

Distinctive shrapnel damage to the plane points to a fragmentation weapon - such as a BUK - downing the plane. The Kremlin had previously suggested that the missile was from a Ukrainian fighter jet. Pro-Russian rebels have denied any possession of a BUK. However, photographs and videos cast doubt on the claim by the Kremlin and pro-Russian rebels - that they did not have a BUK missile launcher on their territory. Three eyewitnesses, all civilians,...

    Because the United Kingdom has lost control of its immigration process, London has become a cesspool filled with many Islamist savages. Barring a dramatic turnaround it is probably too late for London to be saved from a horrible slow decent into chaos and a future under Islamist domination. Last week brought a glimpse of what London is heading for in her future. A Muslim convert from Nigeria ran amok through backyards in a residential neighborhood with a machete in his hand and murder in his heart. He was determined to violently attack anything and anybody he saw. After damaging a...

    Flag bearing IS symbol auctioned at Sydney mosque •Boy, 15, posts pictures online and says he’ll fight Assad •Fred Nile calls for ban on flag throughout Australia ... PREMIER Mike Baird said the Islamic State flag could be banned across NSW. His stance follows footage of one of the flags, which is linked to the barbaric terrorist organisation, being auctioned in front of families and young children in Sydney. “That is something we will consider and work with community groups about but we can’t have the position where you are seeing any activity that is promoting terrorism, supporting terrorism,” Mr...

    Joan Rivers crushed 9/11 terrorists by laughing. So should you. If the doyenne of dark comedy were still alive, the Republican Party would win the 2016 presidential election by nominating Joan Rivers. First, because the GOP would be running an octogenarian grandmother against a slightly younger grandmother (Hillary Clinton) and Democrats could not accuse Republicans of attacking Clinton’s age, sex or grandmotherhood. Second, because Rivers had a self-depreciating sense of humor whereas Hillary has a mean streak (think Clinton’s dismissal of cookie-baking housewives or her “What difference does is make?!” screech). Third, Rivers would have been more adept at handling...

    President Obama was being needlessly modest when he told reporters he had no strategy for dealing with the Islamic State. Not true. He does, in fact, have a strategy; it's just been buried under a pile of bloated, JV-league cliches. After carefully reviewing his many statements on the topic over the past months, we've managed to piece the president's line of reasoning together into a more or less coherent statement. To wit...

    Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad (Carlos Bledsoe): A Case Study in Lone Wolf Terrorism By Daveed Gartenstein-Ross June 1, 2009 was a Monday. Shortly after 10:00 a.m., Private William Long, 24, and Private Quinton Ezeagwula, 18, stood outside the joint Army-Navy recruiting center in northwestern Little Rock, Arkansas, taking a smoke break. The two young men, who were working at their hometown recruiting center before moving on to their first duty station, spoke of where that first assignment would take them. Long said that he would be leaving for Korea the following Monday; Ezeagwula was bound for Hawaii a day earlier, on...

    France is grappling with its home-grown ‘jihadi’ threat as a number of radicalised youth are leaving to fight in Syria and Iraq, alongside extremists. On Wednesday, an alleged ‘jihadi’ was caught in Turkey with his two-year-old daughter. A 16-year-old girl, suspected of trying to join Islamist rebels in Syria was arrested at the Nice airport along with her alleged recruiter, a 22-year old Chechen man. Last week, Russian television showed an interview of former soldiers who fought in Afghanistan and elsewhere, fighting in East Ukraine with pro-Russian rebels. 900 French citizens have traveled to Syria and Iraq since 2012, according...

    For those who are misled, confused, not paying attention, or hiding their heads in the sand I will endeavor to make this as simple as it is true. Question: Why are westerners fighting for ISIS/ISIL/IS? Subtext: How are they able to recruit so many Muslims from so many places? Answer: A. They promised a modern caliphate would be established, and B. They declared a caliphate was in place in the land liberated from the worshipers of the cross by Khalid and Abu Obaidah. It is the Islamic prophetic promise fulfilled. It is the great commission of the prophet brought to...

    By releasing the grisly videos of the beheadings of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, ISIS has altered the political landscape here and across the Middle East. America is on fire. "This is beyond anything that we've seen," said Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, "ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen. ... They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess." Sen. Lindsey Graham calls ISIS an "existential threat." Even Rand Paul has caught the war fever: "If I were president, I would call a joint session of Congress. I would...
