    Federal investigators in Germany have unearthed new evidence linking Iran to the 1985 bombing of a US military base that injured 35 people, a report said on Saturday. Iranian secret agents had allegedly detonated explosives concealed in a vehicle at the Frankfurt post-exchange food store on November 24, 1985, said the report in Focus news magazine. Focus said investigators believe the agents were members of a hit squad working on orders from Teheran to eliminate dissidents living in Europe in exile. The hit squad was also responsible for the deaths of two dissidents, one in Hamburg in 1987 and another...

The sarcophagus required a full week to excavate, and its lid alone weighed two tons.

    The German government said on Saturday that it would launch an investigation into Nazi influence on the country’s post-war central government. The probe at a cost of €4 million ($4.2 million) will run until 2020, and will complement some 20 such inquiries already made at numerous ministries and institutions to determine the reach of alleged Nazi networks following World War II. €1 million will be specially devoted to uncovering Nazi influence at the heart of German power — the Chancellery. Investigators will seek to clarify what continuity there was in the staff of the Chancellery, the office that serves Germany’s...

    The trial begins in Bonn this week of a Syrian man who threw his three children from a first-floor window, allegedly because he disliked his wife’s desire to enjoy the same freedoms as German women. […] Prosecutors say the suspect has admitted to throwing his children out the window of the asylum accommodation, formerly a Chinese restaurant, in Lohmar. According to the indictment, the crime stemmed from the 36-year-old’s frustration with his wife, who “in Germany no longer wished to accept the roles they had at home, and did not want to put up with everything he wanted any more.”...

SNIPPET: "There are currently only three jihadi forums that are sufficiently active and well-connected to be of any interest whatsoever. Why we claim to be on the verge of defeating al-Qaida while simultaneously watching passively as they use these forums to regroup and regenerate is beyond me. These are the forums three: • al-Fidaa, a forum created by al-Qaida core. That it is directly linked to al-Qaida by definition moves it to the top of the list. Current membership: 2,462, all of whom can be considered "active" if only because they just joined the forum....

    On the surface there would seem to be little to unite the Aryan racialists of the neo-Nazi movement with the terrorists of radical Islam. To the neo-Nazis, Muslims are almost all members of ``inferior`` races; and to the Islamic terrorists, the neo-Nazis are almost without exception either atheists or members of fringe quasi-Christian sects. But the reality is that there has been close cooperation between Muslim extremists and Fascists ever since the founding of the Nazi movement in the 1920`s. For all of their differences, Muslim extremists and Nazis have always been united by a common group of beliefs and...
