    A second source has confirmed the fireworks’ presence, which was also the subject of media reports in Lebanon on Friday. The claim that fireworks were being stored in the same warehouse as the ammonium nitrate appears to be confirmed by phone footage, apparently filmed by a port worker from the roof of the grain silos that overlooked the seat of the biggest blast – now a 150-metre-wide crater of seawater. In the brief section of footage posted on social media, a long warehouse – running parallel to the grain silo and separated by a road – is visible, with smoke...

    “We have nothing left in Idlib, no properties, houses, or rents. The Sharia Committee seized everything.”With these words, Issa (a pseudonym) from Idlib city described to Enab Baladi what happened to his family’s property years after the Islamic factions took control over the city. Issa added, “We had a house, an agricultural land, and a number of stores, all of which, were rented through my father’s agent, who used to transfer the rents to us on a regular base.”He continued saying, in 2019, the Sharia Committee issued a decision providing for the confiscation of any property that was not managed...

    Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden spoke to a summit of Muslim voters Monday, telling them he wished U.S. schools taught more about Islam. "I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith. I wish we talked about all the great confessional faiths. It's one of the great confessional faiths," Biden said Monday at the “Million Muslim Votes” summit hosted by Emgage Action. Emgage Action, the country’s largest Muslim American PAC, endorsed Biden in April after endorsing Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primary. Biden told the voters he would end President Trump's travel ban affecting Muslim-majority countries on...

    Black lives matter … but the lives of “men and white folks” do not? That apparently is the message Black Lives Matter Toronto co-founder Yusra Khogali was trying to convey when she posted a controversial tweet on Feb. 9 that surfaced Tuesday morning. In the tweet, Khogali asks Allah for strength “to not cuss/kill these men and white folks out here today.” Black Lives Matters activist Sandy Hudson blamed the media for focusing on the tweet, instead of the larger issues at hand. “This is extremely frustrating and emotional for me because we slept outside for two weeks to get...

    Iran: Muslim hunts down and beheads his 19-year-old bride after she fled two days into their forced marriage JUN 16, 2020 4:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER It is noteworthy that “according to Iranian law,” which is based on Islamic law, “a man can kill his wife without punishment if he catches her with another man.” And also that “the victims’ family does not normally demand the punishment of the murderer.” That, too, is in accord with Islamic law. According to Islamic law, “retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject...

    Police in Paris no-go zones are becoming overwhelmed trying to maintain the nationwide quarantine and have handed out record numbers of fines. The heavily migrant-populated Seine-Saint-Denis area is proving to be a tough area for police to enforce the nationwide anti-coronavirus quarantine ordered by French president Emmanuel Macron, with police officers admitting that they are overwhelmed. A man guarding a local pharmacy told newspaper Le Temps that many of the residents do not even believe the virus is a threat to them at all “They do not understand anything. Some even say that this virus is a fable of whites...

The row erupted as smirking Muhammad Rodwan, 56, was jailed for 16 years for attacking PC Stuart Outten after he stopped his white van because it was not insured.

    A 19-year-old man from Texas is facing homicide charges after he admitted to killing his pregnant sister and dumping her body. Viridiana Arevalo, 23, was eight months pregnant and reported missing by her boyfriend on December 17, 2019. It was believed that she was suicidal because of a note the family found that stated she wanted to take her own life. However, after her body was discovered by a group of neighbors in an alley behind their homes on Sunday morning, police became suspicious of foul play. Thanks to the help of the community who gave police their home surveillance...

    Movita Johnson-Harrell seemed to take pride in her position as the first Muslim woman elected to the Pennsylvania State Legislature. Now that record will forever have an asterisk next to it, as Johnson-Harrell has turned herself in to Pennsylvania attorney general Josh Shapiro's office, pleading guilty on charges of perjury, record-tampering, and embezzling over $500,000 in Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security disability funds, as well as donations to Motivations Education and Consultation Associates (MECA), a charity she established to allegedly serve the mentally ill and drug addicted poor in her predominately African-American neighborhood. In a press conference, Attorney General Shapiro described Johnson-Harrell's actions...

    On learning that the U.S. Army War College capitulated to the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (“CAIR”) hysterical demands, Lt Col. Allen West wrote: “This is embarrassing, disgusting, appalling, and highly disconcerting. My Army has just emboldened and encouraged the enemy, and they are laughing at us.” Recent events validate his prediction: having cowed the Army War College into obedience, an “emboldened and encouraged” CAIR replicated its demands with Congress. ... after inviting me to lecture on my recent book on the military history between Islam and the West, the U.S. Army War College (USAWC) reneged once CAIR cried “Islamophobia” and...

    An American Airlines mechanic was arrested Thursday on a sabotage charge accusing him of disabling a navigation system on a flight with 150 people aboard before it was scheduled to take off from Miami International Airport earlier this summer. The reason, according to a criminal complaint affidavit filed in Miami federal court: Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani, a veteran employee, was upset over stalled union contract negotiations. None of the passengers and crew on the flight to Nassau were injured because the tampering with the so-called air data module caused an error alert as the pilots powered up the plane’s engines...

    Our current state of counterterrorism is such that Robert Spencer, Steven Emerson, Patrick Poole, Dave Reaboi, John Rossomando, Stephen Coughlin, or Philip Haney would be extremely unlikely to be invited as experts on terrorism. The wife of the Ground Zero Mosque Imam though? Sure. Come on down and tell us that ISIS supporters don't understand Islam. ... why is the defense bringing in Khan to testify as to whether an ISIS supporter properly understands Islam? Is this really about helping the defendant or about allowing Khan to promote a particular narrative?

    The man who pleaded guilty to throwing a 5-year-old boy from a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America in April received a sentence of 228 months (19 years) Monday morning. Two-thirds of that sentence must be spent in prison. Emmanuel Aranda, 24, was charged with attempted premeditated first-degree murder. During a hearing, Aranda said he knew throwing the child over the balcony could kill him. Aranda agreed to a plea deal in the case roughly three weeks ago. Through statements read in court, the family of 5-year-old Landen, who is still recovering, had a chance to address Aranda prior...
