    Antonio Guterres condemns air raids by Saudi-led coalition on Saada city and urges all parties to protect civilians from danger. The UN chief has condemned air raids by the Saudi-led coalition on Saada city and called for an investigation into the attacks that killed more than 70 people in Yemen. “The Secretary-General calls for prompt, effective and transparent investigations into these incidents to ensure accountability,” Antonio Guterres’ spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, said. A detention centre holding migrants in Saada city was bombed on Friday. Basheer Omar, a Red Cross spokesperson in Yemen, said rescuers continued to search for survivors. He said...

    At least 70 people were killed and more than 130 injured when an airstrike hit a detention center in Yemen on Friday... as the Saudi-led coalition continued to ramp up its deadly offensive on rebels in the war-torn nation. Another airstrike early Friday hit a telecommunications building in the strategic port city of Hodeidah, causing a nationwide internet blackout, according to NetBlocks, an organization that tracks network disruptions... The Iran-back Houthi rebels, who control much of Yemen, blamed the Saudi-led coalition for the strikes. CNN has reached out to the coalition for comment. A coalition led by Saudi Arabia and...
  • Did the Texas Synagogue Jihadi Act Alone?-A sobering look at the Pakistani connection

    In the wake of the turbulence surrounding the 15 January 2022 Texas synagogue attack, it may be useful to take a step backward to review those events from a broader strategic perspective. John Guandolo at Understanding the Threat has done an excellent job explaining how this attack fits into the overall Islamic Movement jihad campaign against Western Civilization and the United States Constitutional Republic and the Jewish people in particular. Here, though, let us focus on the particular involvement of two international aspects: the Tablighi Jama’at Islamic revivalist/missionary organization and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and its Inter-Services Intelligence...

    He “can quote Mohandas Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King like teenagers quote Taylor Swift.” Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. On Chanukah 2002, four Hercules planes bearing hundreds of people evacuated from Africa landed in Israel. The passengers included Israeli families who had been vacationing in Kenya, some alive, some wounded, and some children returning to their homeland in small coffins. Now, Biden has decided to release Mohammed Abdul Malik Bajabu, an Islamic terrorist who, “participated in the planning and execution...

    The British terrorist who took four people hostage inside a Texas synagogue ranted about the “f***ing Jews” in the final phone call he made to his family during the siege, a recording obtained exclusively by the JC reveals. In a chilling conversation with his brother in Blackburn from inside the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Malik Faisal Akram, 44, said: "I'm opening the doors for every youngster in England to enter America and f*** with them”. Addressing fellow jihadists, he shouted: “Live your f***ing life bro, you f***ing coward. We’re coming to f***ing America. F*** them if they want...

    British police said Thursday they arrested two people in connection with a hostage-taking at a synagogue in Texas. Counter Terrorism Police North West said one man was arrested Thursday in Birmingham, central England, and another in the northern English city of Manchester. They were being held for questioning and had not yet been charged. The force said it was continuing to support U.S. authorities with their investigation into Saturday's hostage incident. Malik Faisal Akram, a 44-year-old British citizen, took four people hostage at a Texas synagogue in a 10-hour standoff that ended in his death. All four hostages were unharmed....

    Emma Watson, the actress who played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies, made news recently when she declared on Instagram “Free Palestine” and declared her “solidarity” with the oppressed Palestinians. Why her opinion should matter tells us something about the mental state of our giddy globe. What’s next? Should we consult Mick Jagger for his views on the expansion of NATO? Or ask Randy Quaid for his thoughts on the IMF? Watson’s sentiment isn’t wrong, writes Stephen Flatow: the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank do indeed need to be free, but she’s sending her message to...

    Unilever has lost 26 billion dollars since announcing its boycott of Judea and Samaria. Half a year after notifying Avi Singer, the owner of Ben & Jerry’s Israel, of the termination of the company’s contract with him due to his refusal to boycott Judea and Samaria, Unilever shares are in an unprecedented dive. Within six months, the company’s stock plunged 20.7%, translated into a 26-billion-dollar loss. For comparison, the stock of major competitor Nestle has risen 5% in the last six months. Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Jewish communities abroad, who are currently waging a wide-ranging struggle against Unilever...

    A court in Pakistan has sentenced a woman to death over allegedly blasphemous messages sent over WhatsApp and Facebook. Aneeqa Ateeq, 26, was found guilty and given a death sentence by a court in Rawalpindi on Wednesday after a complaint was registered against her under Pakistan’s draconian cybercrime and blasphemy laws According to the charge sheet, Ateeq, 26, met her accuser, a fellow Pakistani, online in 2019 through a mobile gaming app and the pair began corresponding over WhatsApp. He accused her of sending blasphemous caricatures of holy prophets, making remarks about “holy personages” on WhatsApp and using her Facebook...

    When it comes to Western governments and jihadism, willful blindness is never fully cured. While critical of the FBI in a column yesterday, I argued that we should cut the bureau some slack. Its Hostage Rescue Team (HRT) had performed bravely in bringing the Texas synagogue hostage crisis to a successful conclusion. The hostages escaped unharmed. The lone fatality was of Malik Faisal Akram, the British jihadist who had created the lethal risk and who’d been shot under circumstances that suggested his capture alive was unlikely. Americans, particularly Jewish Americans, were justifiably nettled by agent Matthew DeSarno, who heads the...
  • Anne Frank Diary Offends Lebanon's Hezbollah

    BEIRUT — Anne Frank's diary has been censored out of a school textbook in Lebanon following a campaign by the militant group Hezbollah claiming the classic work promotes Zionism. The row erupted after Hezbollah learned excerpts of "The Diary of Anne Frank" were included in the textbook used by a private English-language school in western Beirut. Frank wrote the diary while her family hid from Nazi police and sympathizers in an Amsterdam attic from 1942 to 1944. She later died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp at the age of 15, and the diary was published posthumously.

    “We do believe from our engagement with this subject that he was singularly focused on one issue, uh, and it was not specifically related to the Jewish community, uh, but we’re continuing to work to find motive and, and we will continue on that path.” That was Matt DeSarno, FBI special agent in charge, after the hostage incident in Colleyville, Texas, on Saturday. It was bizarre statement, as Robert Spencer noted, because the hostage-taker’s demands revolved around imprisoned jihadist Aafia Siddiqui, also known as “Lady al Qaeda.” The FBI knew that but was “continuing to work to find motive.”...

    Gary Mond is an important figure in British Jewry: he is — or was until January 12 — a vice president of the Jewish Board of Deputies and the treasurer of the Jewish National Fund (JNF-UK). Some of his past comments on social media that have recently come to light caused such a furor that he felt compelled to resign. Robert Spencer wrote about this here, and an additional report on the events surrounding Mond’s reluctant resignation is here: “British Jewish leader resigns following comments about ‘war with Islam,’” by Cnaan Lipshiz, Times of Israel, January 14, 2022A senior...

    Twelve European Union (EU) members condemned Israel for housing expansion in the West Bank, which they claim jeopardizes the two-state solution. Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, and Sweden issued a joint statement last October in which they expressed their opposition to Israeli government approval of constructing 3,000 housing units in area C of the West Bank (Judea and Samaria), as well as 1,600 units for Palestinians in the same area. The EU claim is that the housing units for Jews infringe on the so-called “occupied Palestinian territory.” Yet, area C has been designated...

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. After Obama’s obsession with freeing as many Islamic terrorists from Gitmo as possible, the ones who remained were the absolute worst of the worst. Now Biden is setting them loose too. 5 Islamic terrorists, Al Qaeda and allies, have been scheduled for release from custody. They include Osama bin Laden bodyguards and murderous terrorists with blood on their hands. Zuhail al-Sharabi had been allegedly trained in “how to function in Western cities” and “reading airline timetables”...

    ...The covert MI5 probe into his Islamic extremism lasted at least a month, sources confirmed... It comes as Akram's brother also raised concerns as to how the gunman managed to get a US visa despite having a criminal record. He was not on US "no-fly" lists despite the oddball's clear links to Islamic extremism dating back at least 20 years. It also emerged that he was barred from entering Blackburn Magistrates’ Court for repeatedly threatening and abusing the court staff as long ago as 2001. Deputy justice clerk Peter Wells slammed Akram as a "menace" at the time... After issuing...

    The more we learn about the radical Islamic terrorist who held hostages in a Texas synagogue over the weekend, the more questions arise that need to be answered by the Federal Bureau of Investigations. They knew Malik Faisal Akram, 44, was a threat but spent taxpayer dollars and crucial investigative resources hunting down mostly peaceful protesters from the Capitol event over a year ago. Both Donald Trump Jr. and Jack Posobiec had questions: “A known jihadist came into the US and took hostages at a targeted synagogue while the FBI was going after MAGA meemaws,” Posobiec Tweeted. “How long did...
