    Yahoo News ^ | 10/22/16 | Haitham Ahmed - Reuters
    CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian court confirmed a 20-year prison sentence against former president Mohamed Mursi on Saturday, judicial sources told Reuters. The sentence was for a conviction arising from the killings of protesters during demonstrations in 2012. It is the first of Mursi's four convictions to reach the end of the judicial process, and he cannot appeal further against it. Twenty-year jail sentences were also confirmed against other senior figures from the then-ruling Muslim Brotherhood, including Mohamed el-Beltagy and Essam el-Erian. The men were convicted in April 2015 on charges including kidnapping, torture and the killings of protesters during...

    The Iraqi and Kurdish armies continue to progress towards Mosul in northern Iraq, and are now a mere 15 kilometers from the city itself. Terrorist group ISIS slaughtered 284 men and boys, then piled their bodies in a mass grave.

About a thousand people were suffered injuries from breathing gases in the Mosul area, after a sulfur factory in the south of the city was set on fire. The fire is assumed to...
  • TUBE BOMB: Terror as crude IED found on train fails to explode - MORE attacks expected

    ARMED anti-terror police were flooding London today amid fears a BOMB found on a Tube train last night was just the first of many. Officers tasered and arrested a 19-year-old man after a "viable improvised explosive device" was found on a Tube train at North Greenwich. North Greenwich tube station was evacuated for nearly seven hours after London Underground staff found the suspect package on an eastbound Jubilee Line train. But experts warned the IED may have been just the first in a co-ordinated attack on the capital.

    Despite the Obama administration’s touting itself as the most transparent in history, its Justice Department has stonewalled requests for information about its efforts to combat antisemitism; this stands in stark contrast to its very public talk about fighting anti-Muslim crime.Readers may remember Rick Santorum telling the audience at a 2015 presidential debate, “There’s [sic] four times as many acts of violence against Jews than there are against Muslims, [but] I never hear the president talk about that.” The statistic is roughly accurate, according to a comparison of the raw numbers of reported hate crimes targeting each community in 2014. It should be noted, however, that the statistics are incomplete. For example, Kansas failed to report three 2014 murders targeting Jews,...

    The US State Department denounced the latest Palestinian terrorist attack in Jerusalem by condemning “the statements glorifying this reprehensible and cowardly attack.” At first, this might seem like good news. President Barack Obama’s administration finally acknowledged and criticized the horrendous glorification of terrorist attacks by Palestinians. Your optimism will fade, however, once you notice that the State Department forgot to mention one little thing: the identity of those it condemned. Who exactly has been making statements “glorifying” the attack? Who called the terrorist a hero and a martyr? Who defended and justified the murder of an Israeli Jewish grandmother? The...

The perception that the high school may be endorsing Guandolo’s anti-Muslim bigotry could lead to a hostile learning environment for Muslim and other minority students,” said Jaylani Hussein, the executive director of CAIR-MN, in a...

    It is difficult to say who will be elected by American people, but the world (except for sterile Western Europe) has made its choice. And this choice, in spite of formal logic, is the "racist," "sexist," "imperialist," "Islamophobe" Donald Trump. In New York, the President of Egypt, el-Sisi, has met with Trump and characterized him as a "strong leader." The presidents of the Czech Republic and Hungary, Milos Zeman and Viktor Orban, urged Americans to elect Trump. According to Orban, Trump would be a better leader than Obama, and Zeman compared him with Reagan. Russia, Israel and the Arab monarchies...

    Please let's not jump to any conclusions. Conclusion jumping must be avoided in the cases of Muslims killing people. Or rather we must jump to any and every other possible conclusion. This particular Muslim was homicidally suicidal... but in a non-Islamic way. A 28-year-old Jordanian Muslim who who was studying to become a pilot died after crashing a small plane Tuesday afternoon in Connecticut, and the instructor pilot who survived the crash said it was intentional. Arian Prevalla, another pilot on the plane said, “the crash was not an accident”. Local and state police, along with several federal agencies, including...

    Saddam Hussein had a secret torture room built in the basement of the Iraqi mission to the United Nations in New York’s Upper East Side, it has been reported. The Iraqi dictator ordered the installation of the “detention room” inside the five-story building at 14 East 79th Street when he rose to power in 1979, two unnamed Iraqi officials told the New York Post. “It was a dark room. The doors were reinforced in a way that nobody could break in or out. You didn’t need to soundproof it,” one official said. The other official added: “You’re not going to...
  • IT’S OVER: Hillary’s ISIS Email Just Leaked & It’s Worse Than Anyone Could Have Imagined…

    Today Wikileaks released what is, by far, the most devastating leak of the entire campaign. This makes Trump’s dirty talk video looks like an episode of Barney and Friends. Even though when Trump called Hillary the ‘founder’ of ISIS he was telling the truth and 100% accurate, the media has never stopped ripping him apart over it. Today the media is forced to eat their hats because the newest batch of leaked emails show Hillary, in her own words, admitting to doing just that, funding and running ISIS. John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chair, who was also a counselor to President...

    A U.S. Navy destroyer was targeted on Wednesday in a failed missile attack from territory in Yemen controlled by Iran-aligned Houthi rebels, the second such incident in four days, the U.S. military said. The USS Mason fired defensive salvos in response to at least one missile which did not hit the ship or caused any damage as it operated north of the Bab al-Mandab Strait, the Pentagon said. Indications are that the second salvo brought down an incoming missile, one U.S. official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

    The Washington Examiner reported last week that “at 42.4 million, there are now more immigrants, legal and illegal, in America than ever before, fueled by a massive flood from Muslim nations….And while the doors remain open on the U.S.-Mexico border, the biggest percentage increases in immigration are all from largely Muslim nations.” What could possibly go wrong? Hillary Clinton knows, as she revealed in a 2013 email that makes her current public position on immigration absolutely inexplicable.

    Donald Trump declared war on the Republican establishment Tuesday, lashing out at House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis.), Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) and other GOP elected officials as his supporters geared up to join the fight amid extraordinary turmoil within the party just four weeks before Election Day. One day after Ryan announced he would no longer campaign on Trump’s behalf, the GOP nominee said as part of a barrage of tweets that the top-ranking Republican is “weak and ineffective” and is providing “zero support” for his candidacy. Trump also declared that “the shackles have been taken off” him, liberating...
