    The US investigation has found that the Facebook groups accessed by the friends of JeM handler Kashif Jaan were related to jihad and JeM. Two months after asking Pakistan to bring the perpetrators of the 2016 Pathankot terrorist attack to justice, the US has now handed over evidence confirming that the attack on Pathankot airbase did in fact come from Pakistan. On January 2, 2016, a heavily armed group attacked the Pathankot Air Force Station, part of the India's Western Air Command, killing six Indian security personnel. India blamed Pakistan-based jihadi group Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) for orchestrating the brutal assault. According...

    Britain's most notorious Islamist extremists were bankrolled by more than £1 million of taxpayers' money while waging their campaign of hate, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. A dozen supporters of Islamic State recruiter Anjem Choudary – many of them now convicted terrorists or jihadis who are fighting in Syria or have died there – were paid wages by a businessman who was handed huge sums of public money to run computer training courses in libraries and job centers. And now a judge has found that the man – a close associate of Choudary's – funnelled tens of thousands of...

    The Mayor of Luckenwalde, eastern Germany, has sacked a Palestinian intern for refusing to remove her headscarf at work. Elisabeth Herzog-von der Heide said the garment violated the neutrality of the town hall. Local German newspaper “Märkische Allgemeine” reported on Wednesday that the 48-year-old Palestinian woman was fired from her six-week internship with the “Perspectives for refugees” project after just one day. […] Christian Democratic Union (CDU) politician Sven Petke criticized Herzog-von der Heide's decision. “There are no legal grounds for this decision,” Petke said, adding that Germany’s Federal Constitutional Court had ruled that personal beliefs and their connection to...

    A year ago Germany showed itself as a country offering help. Security wasn’t an issue, but today it’s clear that terrorists have misused refugee routes and extremists are recruiting members amongst refugees. The terrorist attacks in Würzburg and Ansbach in July were not related to the arrival of so many refugees in the autumn of 2015. Both assailants were already living in Bavaria. But the fact that people, who had been taken in by Germany, then took an ax and a bomb, respectively, and turned on those who had offered help, has highlighted the disturbing side of migration. Many now...

    Operations in the Levant (1516) The Ottomans first captured the city of Diyarbekir in southeastern Anatolia.[2] The Battle of Marj Dabiq (24 August 1516) was decisive, in which the Mamluk ruler Kansuh al-Ghuri was killed.[2] The Ottomans apparently outnumbered the Mamluks by a factor of 3 to 1.[6] Syria fell under the rule of the Ottomans with this single battle.[6] The Battle of Yaunis Khan occurred near Gaza (1516) and was again a defeat for the Mamluks.

In doing so, it is inarguably contributing to the campaign to “other” the world’s only Jewish state and, with it, the Jews themselves. Using the justification that U.S. military aid to Israel “diverts much needed funding from domestic education and social programs,” the platform launches into a ridiculous, one-sided...

    Wardens in prisons in the UK (and throughout the West) are failing “to stop jihadi poison spreading in jails: Staff face being labelled racist if they stand up to hate preachers.” Calling out jihadist doctrine renders one a so-called “islamophobe,” and this label — intended to browbeat the infidel — must be fully resisted. UK prisons today show why: this label is enabling jihad activity. In America, it’s no different, as federal prisons are described by experts as “breeding grounds” for terrorists. The implications are severe…. “Prisons have long been criticized for a culture that can make some inmates more...

    The State Department confirmed Monday that the Obama administration has paid Iran another $1.3 billion to settle a failed arms deal from 1979, but couldn't describe who in the Iran government it paid, and couldn't say what form that payment took — cash, check or otherwise. The State Department also admitted it can't guarantee that the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps wouldn't be able to get its hands on the money eventually. "We can always hand it over to someone who can hand it over to the IRGC," State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters. Many in the U.S. see the...

    Gen Chakthip said police know the meeting points of all the suspects and their travel routes before and after their bombing missions. Most of the perpetrators were followers of Islam from the three Muslim-dominated southern border provinces of Yala, Narathiwat and Pattani. Many of them were previously unknown to police, but others were linked to violent attacks in the southernmost provinces. He refused to comment whether any had dual Thai-Malaysian citizenship. “The incidents appear to be the work of the new generation, as we have had no profiles of several of them. The veterans [from the southern separatist movement] may...

    Frightening footage has emerged purporting to show Kurdish security forces removing an explosive belt from an alleged Islamic State teenage suicide bomber moments before it was about to be detonated in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk on Sunday.

    Over the course of the 5 year-long civil war in Syria, the US has slowly escalated its military involvement. However one significant move which they have so far failed to implement is a No Fly Zone (NFZ) enforced by their aircraft over all (or just part) of Syria. Despite this, today the US may have tacitly announced just such a NFZ. In a press conference this evening, the Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook, made a number of statements regarding US forces in Syria. These statements came following reports that the US backed SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) had been bombed by...

    (CNN)Dramatic video has emerged of Iraqi police stripping an explosive belt from a child suspected in a suicide bombing attempt for ISIS. The footage appears to show security personnel restrain a visibly upset boy while they carefully cut the belt from the youth's torso in Kirkuk. Once the belt has been removed, the boy is scooped up and taken away. Kurdistan 24, a broadcast news station based out of Irbil, Iraq, aired Sunday's capture. Authorities said they believe the 15-year-old came to Kirkuk a week ago from Mosul, ISIS' most significant stronghold outside Syria. "He was captured before he reached...

    Greetings Readers, Friends, and Other Visitors: The Time Traveler appeared suddenly in my study on New Year’s Eve, 2004. He was a stolid, grizzled man in a gray tunic and looked to be in his late-sixties or older. He also appeared to be the veteran of wars or of some terrible accident since he had livid scars on his face and neck and hands, some even visible in his scalp beneath a fuzz of gray hair cropped short in a military cut. One eye was covered by a black eyepatch. Before I could finish dialing 911 he announced in a...

    Evan McAllister was 23 years old when he fought in the Iraqi city of Ramadi in 2006. He killed men and buried friends. Eight years later, he watched the same city fall to the Islamic State. To McAllister, a former Marine staff sergeant and scout sniper instructor, the war he fought was a harebrained mission planned by Republicans, rubber-stamped by Democrats and, in the end, lost to al-Qaeda’s brutal successor. The foreign policy establishment of both parties got his friends killed for no reason, he said, so come Election Day, he is voting for the man he believes answers to...
