  • London Terror Suspect Named as Sudanese Migrant Salih Khater(?)

    The man being held on suspicion of terrorism after the Westminster car attack on Tuesday has been named as Salih Khater by British newspapers. The event, in which 15 cyclists and pedestrians were reportedly struck before Khater’s silver Ford Focus hit the Palace of Westminster anti-terror barrier just before 07:40 BST, is being investigated by British counter-terror police. He has been arrested under the 2006 terrorism act. Apparently uncomfortable in identifying the terror suspect using the common nomenclature as an ‘immigrant’, government security minister Ben Wallace instead called Khater a “British citizen [who] came from another country originally” when he...

    Will Swedes finally wake up and deal with their immigration problem? Multiple Swedish localities were subjected to what appears to be coordinated arson attacks on Monday, as youths set fire to at least 100 cars in and around the city of Gothenburg, the city of Trollhättan further north, Falkenberg and in the capital city of Stockholm. Prime Minister Stefan Lofven described the attacks as "very organized, almost like a military operation." He said he was "really getting mad" and that "society must react in a tough manner." No kidding! This is nothing new. Five years ago, for example, Sweden experienced days of rioting,...

    Democrat judge sends dangerous jihadists back into our midsts. New Mexico state judge Sarah Backus on Monday released five Islamic radicals on a $20,000 “signature bond,” which requires no payment.  The decision came as a shock, given what local law enforcement had discovered.  At a ramshackle compound near the Colorado state line, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 39, Lucas Morton, 40, Jany Leveille, 35, Hujrah Wahhaj, 38, and Subhanah Wahhaj, 35, trained 11 children to use firearms and attack schools. The compound had been under surveillance but police only launched a raid when one of the children texted that they were all...

    Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman addressed Gaza residents via the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Major General Kamil Abu Rokun's Facebook page via the Al Monaseq website. "I distinguish between Hamas leadership and the ordinary residents of Gaza," Liberman wrote. "Therefore, I decided to open the Kerem Shalom crossing and extend the fishing area back to 9 miles, as a clear message to Gaza's residents: Quiet pays off and violence doesn't pay off. The residents of Gaza have something to gain when Israeli citizens enjoy quiet and security, and something to lose when the peace is disturbed. "The people...

    CNN reporter Jennifer Hansler attacked President Trump today for tweeting about an apparent terror attack in London while the investigation was still underway. However, CNN itself was reporting the incident as a terrorist attack before Trump tweeted. Further, UK authorities had indeed already announced that they were treating the incident as a terror attack. Wrote Hansler: In addition to declaring the incident a "terrorist attack" before officials in London, Trump said the perpetrators are "animals." Remarkably, Hansler's article acknowledges that the suspect had been arrested on suspicion of terrorist offenses. In her very first sentence, Hansler also links to another...

    A journalist was assaulted by a soon-to-be congresswoman while asking her questions at a political rally for U.S. Congressional candidate Ilhan Omar in Minnesota on Saturday. Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian Muslim who won her primary in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District on Tuesday, forcefully grabbed Jewish journalist Laura Loomer and stole her phone when Loomer approached her to ask questions at the rally. In the Middle East, violence against Jews may be tolerable. In America, where Tlaib – running unopposed after her primary win – and is set to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives, it is not. In fact,...

    The Taliban are on the verge of dramatically expanding their control over southern and eastern Afghanistan in a surprise offensive that has caught Afghan and U.S. forces off guard and thrown a vexing new wrench into the Trump administration’s strategy for ending the nearly 17-year-old war there. The Afghan Defense Ministry said Monday a Taliban assault on the city of Ghanzi — a key provincial capital linking other areas under the Islamic militant group’s control just 75 miles southeast of Kabul — has killed roughly 100 Afghan security forces and some 20 civilians over the past three days. While the...

    THE Westminster terror suspect is believed to have travelled from his home in the Midlands before ploughing the car he bought two months ago into cyclists and pedestrians. Armed cops arrested the man, aged in his 20s, after three people were left injured following the suspected terror attack outside Parliament this morning. Chilling footage showed the Ford Fiesta career through Westminster before mowing down pedestrians and smashing into a barrier during a "terror" rampage. Dramatic videos show the vehicle hurtling across lanes outside the Houses of Parliament before it knocked several cyclists off their bikes. The handcuffed driver is believed...

    A New Mexico state judge ruled Monday that five alleged Muslim extremists accused of training children to conduct school shootings do not have to remain in jail while they await trial for child abuse. Judge Sarah Backus released the five defendants, Siraj Wahhaj, Hujrah Wahhaj, Subhannah Wahhaj, Jany Leveille, and Lucas Morten, on a $20,000 "signature bond," according to the Albuquerque Journal. That means that the defendants will not have to pay money unless they violate the conditions of their release. Backus said that New Mexico state prosecutors were unable to show that the five defendants should have their bail...

He added, "We can do two things; one in economy, the other in politics. We have taken measures that economy needs and we will keep doing it. "What is more important, I think, is keeping our political stance strong." The rift between the US...
