    Police pleaded with the public for help identifying a gunman who fled after killing four women and a man at a Washington state mall Friday night. As authorities determine a motive, they said Saturday that there was no immediate evidence the attack was terror-related. The suspect, dressed in a black T-shirt and black shorts, was seen on surveillance footage at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, about 65 miles north of Seattle, where he opened fire inside a Macy's department store. Authorities don't know his whereabouts or identity, but believe he is a Hispanic man in his 20s or 30s. "Hopefully...

    According to a report from Iraqi News, the Islamic State staged the public execution of six youths from a “resistance faction” in Mosul by handcuffing them and then killing them with a welding machine, before a large crowd of onlookers. “This came in order to create a state of fear and panic among the people,” said a source from within Mosul. The Toronto Sun explains that the Islamic State often uses the term “resistance group” to describe groups of young people who spray graffiti on the walls of occupied cities. Fox News reported the six boys, whose exact ages are...

    Sweden’s embassy in Budapest has sharply rebuked Hungary after an official leaflet claimed that Stockholm and other European cities had become “no-go areas”. Flyers warning of “hundreds of no-go areas in European cities”, which highlighted Stockholm along with London, Brussels, Marseille, Berlin and the Copenhagen-Malmö area, were this month sent to millions of households in Hungary ahead of its referendum next month on EU refugee quotas, reports the Financial Times. The leaflets claimed that migrants have overrun hundreds of “no-go” areas in Europe which “the authorities cannot keep under control” and where “the norms of the host society (…) barely...

    Huma Abedin's role in American politics first rose to prominence when she served as a top adviser to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (again, their friendship stretches back considerably). Since then, the Muslim Brotherhood has vastly strengthened its position within the US. Within that time period, the US government has reversed a standing policy against formal contact with the Brotherhood, went on channeling funds into Egypt despite the Brotherhood's victory in post-Mubarak elections there, and hosted official Brotherhood delegations in the United States. Abedin's level of involvement in these actions can be debated, but whether she is personally responsible or...

"We have not seen an increase in terrorist financing by Iran," Lew told the House Financial Services Committee. But Lew also acknowledged that he wasn't aware if there was any way to trace how Iran uses the cash. Republicans pressed him on whether the U.S. recorded the serial numbers on the bills that were shipped to Iran, but Lew said he did not know. The U.S. arranged...

Speaking at the UN General Assembly in New York, Abdullah spoke of the importance of peace between Israel and Palestinians, blaming the ongoing conflict for continued unrest in the region. “No injustice has spread more bitter fruit than the denial of a Palestinian state. I say: Peace is a conscious decision,” the king said. “Israel has to embrace peace or eventually be engulfed in a sea of hatred...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has been a vocal backer of President Obama’s (ultimately successful) plan to import a minimum of 10,000 Syrian refugees by the end of the fiscal year, at one point accusing Republicans of “slamming the door on mothers and children.” But with just days remaining in the 2016 Fiscal Year, Pelosi’s own district has yet to resettle a single Syrian refugee. Since Oct. 1, 2015, more than 12,000 Syrian refugees have been placed in the U.S., according to data from the State Department’s Refugee Processing Center. San Francisco, California, which includes Pelosi’s district (CA-12), has taken...

A rocket that landed within several hundred yards of US troops at Qayara air base near Mosul may have contained mustard agent, it said. No one was hurt in the attack on the base, which is home to several hundred US soldiers. If confirmed, it would be the first chemical weapons attack on coalition forces in Iraq.

The bloodstained journal clearly makes reference to seeking “guidance” from leading terrorist figures Anwar al-Awlaki and “Brother Adnani.” Adnani rose to chief spokesman of ISIS, frequently encouraging lone wolf attacks in the West, particularly on non-believers. After the announcement of Adnani’s death, Rita Katz, of Site Intelligence group, tweeted that ISIS supporters calling for lone wolf attacks cite Adnani more than any other terrorist.

They made life miserable for their neighbors. When the police tried to bring some order, they cried Islamophobia. Two of the Rahamis have posted in support of the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda and other Islamic terror groups on social media. The third actually built and planted bombs to kill Americans. He terrorized two states, tried to kill and maim countless Americans and then shot it out with police. Ahmad Khan Rahami,...

    President Obama spoke to the nation on September 19 to address the rash of Islamist-inspired terror attacks that occurred in New York, New Jersey and Minnesota over the weekend. Instead of reassuring the nation, the brief, lackluster address regurgitated the same tired banalities and lacked substance. Obama inexplicably failed to classify the East Coast attacks as terrorism and then noted that “[a]t this point we see no connection between [the Minnesota] incident and what happened here in New York and New Jersey.” The sanitized speech was also devoid of any reference to radical Islam even though the evidence suggests that...

    The reason our authorities don't take pre-emptive action against Islamic terror -- even after solid intelligence warnings.Why does the Obama administration keep failing to thwart Muslim terrorist attacks in the U.S. after receiving apparently good intelligence warning of those attacks? It turns out that Americans keep turning in budding Muslim terrorists to the Obama administration and the administration keeps on doing nothing. For example, the alleged mastermind of the weekend pressure-cooker bombing in New York City was turned in by his own father but the Federal Bureau of Investigation failed to do much of anything about him. These intelligence failures...

The Ifop survey carried out for a major study of French Muslims by Institut Montaigne, a liberal think-tank, showed that the vast majority of people who identify as Muslim accept curbs on religion in public. But 60 percent considered girls should nonetheless be allowed to wear the headscarf in school, 12 years after it and other religious symbols were banished from the classroom, the survey...

    Officer Jason Falconer was off duty when he stopped the stabbing attack at Crossroads Center in St. Cloud on Saturday.

    Let's not play games or be "politically correct." Common sense tells us that the bombings Saturday in New York City and New Jersey were acts of terrorism. But too often these days, we don't hear the word terrorism used by the media or elected officials until they know that the perpetrators involved have some kind of international links. And we know what that means: Muslims.

    Rudy Giuliani attack current Mayor Bill de Blasio for the way he responded to the bomb attack in New York City over the weekend.

"He looked like he didn't know what he was doing," Giuliani told Circa in an interview when asked about de Blasio's initial response to an attack that wounded 29...

    Bombings in the New York region and a stabbing attack in Minnesota have thrust Islamic extremism into the forefront of the 2016 election just a week before the first presidential debate, with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton offering dramatically different visions of how to fight it. Trump has embraced aggressive rhetoric in a plan that’s short on detail, but centers on limiting immigration — both legal and illegal — and dispensing with “politically correct” policies that currently block racial profiling and the use of torture. Clinton has offered policies that would focus on leveraging alliances and improving relationships with Muslim...

    ELIZABETH, N.J. – Authorities said they apprehended Ahmad Khan Rahami, the 28-year-old wanted in connection with weekend bombings in Manhattan and Seaside Park, N.J., after a shootout Monday with police officers. The bloody incident capped off a frantic 72-hour period in this region and beyond, marked by the dual bombings, a stabbing spree in Minnesota and then, Sunday night, the discovery of still more explosive devices at a train station here. Even as the widening probe into the bombings continued across this region, authorities sought to reassure residents that the the bombings and additional explosives appeared to be the work...
