    Source: Eli Kay/FacebookOn Sunday morning, a terrorist attack took place in Jerusalem leaving one Israeli dead and three injured. Attacks like this are always sad and cause a range of emotions, from anger to despair, that no matter what, Palestinian Arabs are always trying to kill us, just because we are Jews living in the Land. The man who was murdered was Eliyahu (Eli) Kay, 26. Eliyahu was a new immigrant from South Africa. He came to Israel to serve in the IDF as a lone soldier, joining the elite paratroopers. When I saw his picture in uniform with the...

    Yes, I realized it’s September 12th, and no, that title isn’t a reference to Sgt. Pepper. The shock of September 11, 2001, was only compounded the next day, when the country woke up and realized it wasn’t a sick dream. The first day in the new reality, without those who were taken. The main memory, the feeling that sticks with me from 20 years ago is anger. I wasn’t scared or even sad, I was pissed off. I didn’t know anyone lost that day, but I was mad. I’d stayed in Baltimore that day for a conference on e-books. I...

    The man who rammed a car into two officers at a barricade outside the U.S. Capitol, killing one of them before he was shot to death by police, had been suffering from delusions, paranoia and suicidal thoughts, a U.S. official told The Associated Press on Saturday. Investigators believe it was an isolated incident from a disturbed young man. ... Investigators are increasingly focused on Green's mental health as they work to identify any motive for the attack, said the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about an ongoing investigation and spoke to The AP on condition of anonymity....

    The niece of 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden claims that Donald Trump is the only president who can prevent another similar terrorist attack on the United States. Noor bin Ladin, 33, warned that if Joe Biden is elected, another attack may be on the way, as she claimed that leftists in the US have aligned themselves with radicalism. She believes Trump 'must be reelected' and hit out at the likes of Ilhan Omar who she says 'hate your country'. In her first ever interview with the New York Post, bin Ladin, whose branch of the family spells their name differently,...

    raqi security forces failed to stop the siege of the US Embassy. The Iraqi protesters were carrying Hezbollah flags. President Trump blames Iran: “U.S. President Donald Trump said early on Tuesday that Iran was “orchestrating” an attack on the U.S. embassy in Iraq and will be held responsible for it. But is not only Iran responsible for this situation? Everyone seems to forget who helped Hezbollah and the Iran-backed militia that is attacking our embassy in Iraq.

    On Tuesday, mourners with an Iran-backed militia stormed the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad as the Iraqi government refused to intervene. Protesters lit the embassy on fire and shouted, "Death to America!" The attack followed U.S. airstrikes on Sunday against the Iran-backed militia after an American contractor was killed last week in a rocket attack on an Iraqi military base."Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will. Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible," President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday morning. "In addition, we...

    US embassy staff and the US ambassador in Baghdad have been evacuated, according to two unnamed Iraqi Foreign Ministry officials cited by Reuters, as hundreds of Iraqi protesters swam the embassy compound. Iraqi supporters of a powerful Iranian-backed militia were attacking the outside of the fortified zone that surrounds the US embassy compound in Baghdad, protesting against American air strikes that killed 25 fighters from the group, news agencies reported.

    The U.S. Embassy in Iraq is being attacked by Iraqi Shiite militia supporters, who’ve broken into the compound. According to the Associated Press, a fire has been set and sounds of gunfire were heard.    An Associated Press reporter at the scene saw flames rising from inside the compound and at least three U.S. soldiers on the roof of the main building inside embassy. It was not clear what caused the fire at the reception area near the parking lot of the compound. A man on a loudspeaker urged the mob not to enter the compound, saying: “The message was...

    The recent mayhem on London Bridge should remind everyone of the eternal evil of Islamic terrorism. On November 29, Usman Khan, a supposedly former terrorist, wounded three people and fatally stabbed Saskia Jones and Jack Merritt, two young Britons who — in an excruciating irony — participated in that day’s meeting (near the bridge) of Learning Together, an organization that claims to rehabilitate terrorists. Khan, 28, was considered one of its model students. As Giulio Meotti recalled in a chilling essay for the Gatestone Institute, Khan wrote glowingly about his experiences with this outfit. “Learning Together is about opening minds,...

    Investigators have been trying to determine what motivated a gunman who opened fire in a classroom building on Friday at the Naval Air Station Pensacola. He used a handgun and was killed after two deputies exchanged gunfire with him. The shooter was identified by the FBI as Mohammed Alshamrani -- a 21-year-old second lieutenant in the Saudi Arabian air force. He was a student naval flight officer, according to an FBI spokesperson. The shooter does not appear to have ties to terrorist groups, two sources told CNN. Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan told CNN's Erin Burnett that the FBI had...

    Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik used semi-automatic rifles to gun down more than a dozen people at a Christmas party for San Bernardino County employees on Dec. 2, 2015, prosecutors say. Police later confronted and killed the two attackers. Enrique Marquez - a former neighbor and friend of Farook - allegedly bought the two rifles for Farook in 2011 and 2012, and the two planned to launch bomb and shooting attacks at Riverside City College, where they attended classes, and a notoriously gridlocked section of highway without exits. The two never carried out those plans.

    LONDON — A police officer shot and killed a man wearing a fake bomb on London Bridge on Friday, after several people were stabbed in what the police called a terrorist incident, which paralyzed one of the busiest arteries through the city. The chaotic clash, in a country where shootings are rare, involved several officers and civilians, and sent scores of people fleeing from the bridge and areas near it on both sides of the River Thames. It also revived memories of recent terrorist attacks in London, including one on the same bridge in 2017 that killed eight people. “It...

When it came to Hasan, Manning said, there was a double standard. Hasan wrote emails to radical American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki seeking advice on reconciling his Muslim faith with serving in the Army. This fact was known to the FBI. “You could lose your security clearance in the Army for having bad credit and be kicked out of the Army. But you can't lose your security clearance for talking to a member of Al...

Prosecutors in Miami said Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani admitted to sabotaging the airplane July 17 ahead of a scheduled flight from Miami to Nassau, Bahamas, but said it was out of frustration over stalled union contract talks.

    Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri called Wednesday on Muslims to attack U.S., European, Israeli and Russian targets in a speech on the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks online activity of jihadist groups, reported that in a video released by the militant group, the 68-year-old al-Zawahiri also criticizes "backtrackers" from jihad, referring to former jihadis who changed their views in prison and called the 9/11 attacks unacceptable because innocent civilians were harmed. "If you want Jihad to be focused solely on military targets, the American military has presence all over the world, from the...

    The Israeli military Saturday said it foiled a "pending large-scale attack" by Iranian forces and Shiite militia on targets in Israel with a series of airstrikes near Damascus. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) claimed responsibility for the airstrikes, saying it thwarted Iranian drone attacks on Israel, according to a statement. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in acknowledging Israel's responsibility for the attacks, said on Twitter, "I repeat: Iran has no immunity anywhere. Our forces operate in every direction against Iranian aggression." "He who rises to kill you, kill him first," Netanyahu said in his tweet, quoting Hebrew scripture.

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — One person was killed and seven others were wounded on Sunday in an attack by Iranian-allied Yemeni rebels on a Saudi airport, Saudi Arabia said. The strike came as the American secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, traveled to the country for talks on Iran. Regional tensions have flared in recent days. The United States abruptly called off a military strike against Iran last week in response to the shooting down of an unmanned American surveillance drone. The Trump administration has vowed to combine a “maximum pressure” campaign of economic sanctions with a buildup of American...

    Media under-reports plot to imitate Nice truck rampage in America. In a vastly under-reported story by the mainstream media, the capital of the United States barely missed being the target of a Nice-like terrorism attack that killed 86 people and plunged France into grief and shock. In that French city, in July, 2014, a Muslim terrorist drove a large truck down a popular promenade, deliberately smashing into as many innocent people out for a walk as possible, killing 86. Jihadists have a bitter history of using vehicles to kill infidels in the West. Besides Nice, the Berlin Christmas market truck...

    For years Border Patrol agents have expressed concern about America's immigration policies, saying that the United States' southern border was vulnerable. They have expressed concerns about a potential terrorist using the United States-Mexico border as a means of gaining access to America to carry out a terrorist attack. And, not surprisingly, their fears have become a reality. Border Patrol agents are extremely overwhelmed along our southern border. They are spending the majority of their time processing people instead of actually protecting our border. Up until now, we haven't really seen terrorists utilize our southern border to carry out an attack....
