    A prosecutor has charged a Syrian man with terror offenses, alleging that he started a fire at a Malmö community center in order to spread fear in the name of ISIS. Nobody was injured in the fire at a community center in Malmö owned by Shia Muslim organization Aldorr, but repair costs amounted to a million kronor ($113,000). The 30-year-old suspect, who denies the charges and the allegations he is a member of ISIS, is accused of throwing Molotov cocktails at the center on October 11th last year, causing smoke damage to the building. …

    President Donald Trump’s border wall project could get funding through an unlikely method: voluntary donations from private citizens. The newly-founded America First Foundation, Inc., has started accepting donations to fund “the great wall of America,” with the ultimate goal of raising $21 billion to contribute to construction of the nearly 2,000 mile, 18 to 30-foot-high barrier between the U.S. and Mexico. “This is not a joke, this is not a scam, this is the REAL DEAL!” a post on the group’s Facebook page reads. America First’s founders want to bring the American people together to be part of what will...

    Greece will cease taking back refugees under the controversial Dublin Regulation, as the country’s limited capacities to host people are already on the brink of collapse, the Greek migration minister announced in an interview. “Greece is already shouldering a heavy burden,” Ioannis Mouzalas, the migration minister, said. “We accommodate 60,000 refugees... and it would be a mistake to make Greece’s burden heavier by the revival of the Dublin agreement,” he said, also adding that Germany, the primary destination for most refugees, “wants countries where refugees arrive first to bear a large portion of the burden.” Asked if Athens is ruling...

    After last Wednesday's deadly attack outside London's Houses of Parliament, the left-wing British media expressed outrage – not at the appalling way in which Islam and Islamic terrorism have transformed life and sown death throughout the Western world, but at the purported moral depravity of those who dare to connect the dots.  In the Guardian, Jon Henley and Amber Jamiesen sneered at Marine Le Pen for “linking the London attack to migrant policy, despite the attacker being British.” (My emphasis.) They smeared as “xenophobic” Nigel Farage's argument “that the London attacks proved Donald Trump’s hardline immigration and anti-Muslim policies were...

She urged young people to lead the fight against hate speech. Speaking at this weekend’s Young Islam Conference, which opened in the German capital on Friday, the government’s integration minister Aydan Özoguz gave an astonishing and at times humorous account of the hate mail and fake news to which she’s been subjected. Özoguz told the conference participants, a specially selected group of Muslims and non-Muslims under the age of 25, that the internet and social media were driving anti-immigrant...

    US President Donald Trump is expected to recognize thousands of new housing units in Judea and Samaria, and to approve the erection of a new town for Amona's expellees, reported Israel's Channel 2. According to the reports, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will later agree to limit building in Judea and Samaria, while advancing building in the existing "settlement blocs." However, Netanyahu's aides have said the report is inaccurate, and it is not clear how the Likud and Jewish Home parties will react to the final policy.

    Israel took no steps to comply with a Security Council call to stop all settlement activity in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, and instead authorized “a high rate” of settlement expansions in violation of international law, the United Nations said Friday. U.N. envoy Nickolay Mladenov told the council the large number of settlement announcements and legislation action by Israel indicate “a clear intent to continue expanding the settlement enterprise in the occupied Palestinian territory.” […] Mladenov, the U.N. special coordinator for the Middle East peace process, reiterated that the United Nations “considers all settlement activities to be illegal under...

This was London’s counterattack: to show that it takes...

    The officer stabbed in Wednesday’s terror attack in London was unarmed, like more than 90 percent of the British police force. Ketih Palmer, 48, was stabbed to death while guarding the entrance to the British Houses of Parliament unarmed. Just 2,800 out of London’s 31,075 police officers are armed, which the police force considers a safety measure. A cornerstone principle of the Metropolitan Police in London is that guns send the wrong message to communities by provoking crime rather than preventing it. Most officers are only equipped with batons, handcuffs, a mace and in some cases, stun-guns. A small number...

The tall, bearded 36-year-old — who was recently freed from prison after serving a term for funding terrorism — is telling, in chilling detail, how he wants to impose Islam’s strict Sharia law on this country. ...This is all part of Izzadeen’s concerted campaign to defeat ‘Western decadence’ and turn large parts of Britain — where, his supporters say, ‘people live like animals in a jungle’ — into an Islamic Emirate.

    Back in 2003 Iyman Faris was convicted of a rather scatterbrained plot to take down the Brooklyn Bridge by cutting the structure’s support cables. He was planning to do this in collusion with Al Qaeda as part of a possible second wave of attacks against the United States. He was given a rather lengthy jail term but he’s due to be released in December 2020. So what happens then? He’s a naturalized citizen of Pakistani birth, but the Justice Department is now looking to change that situation by stripping him of said citizenship and ejecting him from the country....
