    The wife of Orlando nightclub gunman Omar Mateen was arrested by the FBI on Monday in connection with the mass shooting, officials said.

This period also therefore marks the second anniversary of the period of about an hour during which much of the free world proclaimed itself to be "Charlie" and attempted, by walking through the street, standing for moments of silence or re-tweeting the hashtag "Je Suis Charlie" to show the whole world that freedom cannot be suppressed and that the pen is mightier than the Kalashnikov.

President-elect Trump heavily criticized Chancellor Merkel’s open-door policy on refugees in a joint interview published on Sunday with German tabloid newspaper Bild and British newspaper The Times of London.“I think she made one very catastrophic mistake and that was taking all of these illegals, you know, taking all of the people from wherever they come from,” he said. “And nobody even knows where they come from.

Opening the meeting, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said the international community wanted to “forcefully reiterate that the two-state solution is the only solution possible” to the seven-decade-old conflict. …

Sixty-three percent of Germans in the YouGov poll said they did not find racial profiling generally problematic. Another 27 percent said that it was problematic when police checks are not conducted based on concrete suspicions, but rather on general appearances, including perceived ethnicity or skin color. However, the poll also exposed disparity between age groups, with 46 percent of 18 to 29-year-olds saying they thought racial profiling wasn’t problematic, compared with...

As the threat from international terror groups and homegrown radicalization increases, clamping down on domestic Islamist networks should be a priority. In particular: terror financing. Under the Obama administration, the federal government appeared to ease up on prosecutions of American Islamist charities linked to terror. This was a marked change from the years after 9/11, when...

    Jihad Watch citing Express (UK) article ^ | January 9, 2017 | Robert Spencer
    “He was saying that Muslim women shouldn’t be allowed to wear the niqab and he had his head filled with nonsense that Muslims were trying to take over the country.” The fact that there are some Muslims who are trying to take over the U.K. is obvious: the now-imprisoned Anjem Choudary was quite open about it. Do British authorities really think that now there are no longer any such people in Britain? And there are mainstream voices saying that face veils should be banned in the West, including Angela Merkel. Would British authorities put Merkel into a deradicalization program? Will...

    A MIGRANT rapist will avoid jail after he sexually assaulted a five-year-old boy. The convicted teenager, 15, forced his victim to perform a sex act on him just months after arriving in Britain from Europe. The youth, who cannot be named due to legal reasons, admitted the attack in a Derbyshire Youth Court and received a three year youth rehabilitation order for the attack, which took place on October 30, 2015. However, the decision to hand the teenager a three year sentence was appealed. But the Solicitor General, Tory MP Robert Buckland, will not send the case to the Court...

    Officers in the German city of Hamburg are appealing for witnesses following the brutal attack on the female hospital worker, who was unconscious for so long that she developed hypothermia. The 28-year-old was walking to her car from work at the nearby Asklepios hospital when she apparently heard cries for help coming from a nearby park. But when she rushed into the dark space to offer assistance she was set upon by five men and was beaten unconscious and mugged. Police said there was also evidence that the gang had sexually abused their victim, and that they were not talking...

    The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has ruled that Muslim parents in Switzerland will have to send their children to attend mixed-gender swimming lessons, despite conceding that religious freedoms were being interfered with, on the grounds that mixed-gender swimming lessons were part of a ‘full school curriculum’ and the children’s ‘successful integration’ into society. According to the BBC, the case was initiated by two Swiss nationals of Turkish origin from Basel who wouldn’t send their teenage daughters to compulsory mixed-gender lessons. Swiss education officials, however, said that exemptions were available only for girls who had reached the age of...

    Originally published by the Jerusalem Post. It is not in the least surprising that the PLO-controlled Palestinian Authority did not condemn the terrorist attack on Sunday. It is not surprising because the PLO-controlled PA encouraged the attack. As Khaled Abu Toameh wrote for the Gatestone Institute, in the aftermath of last month’s US-enabled passage of UN Security Council Resolution 2334, which criminalizes Israel, the PA went on the warpath. . Among other things, Muhammad Abu Shtayyeh, who serves as a close adviser to PLO chief and PA leader Mahmoud Abbas called for an intensification of terrorist attacks against Israelis. Shtayyeh...

    The State of Israel is preparing for a new diplomatic battle, this time in Paris. In less than a week the Paris International Conference will convene with participation of delegates from 70 countries. Participants at the conference will call on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to disassociate from Jewish Home leader Naftali Bennett due to his opposition to the establishment of a Palestinian state. The world leaders will call on Israel to endeavor to establish such a state in order to reach an agreement with the Palestinian authority. The leaders maintain that there is no possibility of implementing such a solution...

    German Interior Minister and Christian Democrat Thomas de Maizière has accused the CDU’s Social Democrat (SPD) coalition partners of failing to cooperate when it comes to security and terrorism. In an interview with German weekly Bild am Sonntag, de Maizière said he was not sure whether “everyone in the SPD is ready to take tough measures.” “We could be much farther ahead,” de Maziere added. “Especially regarding the concrete improvement of deportation possibilities.” SPD General Secretary Katarina Barley, however, said de Maizière’s criticism of her party was only to “distract from his own failures.” She added that the interior minister...

    Another 5,000 French Jews emigrated to Israel last year, figures showed Monday, continuing a trend that has seen tens of thousands quit the country after a series of attacks targeting the community. The Jewish Agency of Israel issued the update as France marked two years since attacks on the Charlie Hebdo magazine offices and on a Jewish supermarket in Paris, where four shoppers were shot dead. Daniel Benhaim, who heads the Israeli-backed group in France, said that insecurity had been a “catalyst” for many Jews who were already thinking of leaving. The 5,000 departures in 2016 add to the record...

    Germany’s domestic security chief warned on Sunday that the country’s radical Islamist scene is not only growing, but becoming more decentralized, posing greater challenges to surveillance operations. In an interview with national news agency DPA, Hans-Georg Maaßen also defended security officials under fire after it emerged that Berlin truck attack suspect Anis Amri had slipped through their net, saying they had done everything they could. Overall, the number of Salafists — or fundamentalist Sunni Muslims — in Germany has risen to more than 9,700, sharply up from 3,800 people in 2011, said Maaßen. “It’s of great concern to us that...
