"I think that the practice of automatic, early release where you cut a sentence in half and let really serious, violent offenders out early simply isn't working, and you've some very good evidence of how that isn't working, I am afraid, with this case." — UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson November 30, 2019, after the ISIS attack on London Bridge a day earlier.
Ministers fear the repatriation of children and wives of Islamic state suspects from Syria could pave the way for dozens of jihadis to use human rights laws to return to the UK, sources have disclosed.
MANILA (Reuters) - Soldiers in the southern Philippines rescued a British man and woman from members of an Islamist militant group, the army said on Monday, after their captors fled during a military operation.
ISIS’s official Amaq media outlet claimed responsibility saying:“Two Christian priests were killed today, ISIS shot them down.” ICC said the attack happened as three nearly simultaneous car bombings occurred in the city of Qamishli. One of the explosions occurred near a Chaldean church.
“Thousands of Yezidi women are still trapped in refugee camps in northern Iraq. The Dutch government should help these people, not the IS supporters.” Indeed. But that would be “Islamophobic,” and that’s the very worst thing one can be in Europe and America today.
This is a global war in which essentially the entire world has decided that honest analysis of its motivating ideology is wrong, and must never be done, on pain of demonization, ostracism, deplatforming, and worse. Is that any way to win a war? Of course not.
The Islamic roots of Islamic jihad terrorism are one reality that virtually no one at any point on the political spectrum wishes to address.Mead and other analysts like him, with unconscious paternalism, act as if Muslims were mere passive reactors to what non-Muslims do
Establishment academic Walter Russell Mead, writing about the killing of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in the Wall Street JournalMonday, declared: “Movements like ISIS don’t spring from nowhere. It took centuries of decline, serial humiliations at the hands of arrogant European imperial powers, and decades of failed postcolonial governance to produce the toxic mixture of bigotry.”
Really? ISIS (and presumably other Islamic jihad terror groups) arise from “serial humiliations at the hands of arrogant European imperial powers, and decades of failed postcolonial governance”? No chance that “movements like ISIS’ might have sprung from Islamic texts such as these?
“And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from where they drove you out; persecution is worse than slaughter. But fight them not by the Holy Mosque until they should fight you there; then, if they fight you, kill them — such is the recompense of unbelievers, but if they give over, surely Allah is all-forgiving, all-compassionate. Fight them until there is no persecution and the religion is Allah’s; then if they give over, there shall be no enmity save for evildoers.” (Qur’an 2:191-193)
A JURY has failed to reach verdicts in the trial of a chicken shop worker accused of plotting a drone strike on British soil. He allegedly amassed a stash of weapons including axes, bear-claws, a tomahawk, a machete, and Japanese "ninja eggs" packed with glass shards and chilli seeds before his arrest last June.
The advertisement on the Telegram app is as chilling as it is incongruous: A girl for sale is “Virgin. Beautiful. 12 years old…. Her price has reached $12,500 and she will be sold soon.”
The posting in Arabic appeared on an encrypted conversation along with ads for kittens, weapons and tactical gear. It was shared with the Associated Press by an activist with the minority Yazidi community, whose women and children are being held as sex slaves by the extremists.
US President Donald Trump personally made a number of appeals to European leaders requesting they do more to take responsibility for their ISIS-affiliated nationals... the Europeans refused to budge, arguing that having them return home would increase the risk of Islamist-inspired acts of terrorism....
A female Isil supporter was killed and seven others injured during an exchange of gunfire over a secret Sharia court set up in a Syrian camp holding displaced women and children.
The row broke out when a group of female Isil supporters ordered that several other women in the foreigners' section of al-Hol camp be given lashes for refusing to attend an informal Koranic studies class.
In a new video, an Islamic State (ISIS) spokesman named Abu Abd al-Azeem, “whose speech,” noted Reuters, “is peppered with Koranic recitations,” complained about the bad rap his cuddly group has gotten. “Why are we bombed by planes,” he asked plaintively, “why do all the nations of the unbelieving world come together to fight us?…What is our guilt? What is our crime? We (just) wanted to apply the sharia of Allah.”
Indeed. And now, in light of that statement, here are some questions that mainstream counterterror analysts should ponder deeply: did the Islamic State actually apply Sharia? ISIS is routinely dismissed as un-Islamic, but what exactly did they do that cannot be backed up by specific citations from the Qur’an and Hadith? And if the Islamic State just wanted to apply Sharia, and Sharia is entirely benign and compatible with Western values, as Western analysts also regularly insist, then why did the whole world regard the Islamic State as a criminal entity that must be destroyed? Why was it not welcomed into the family of nations, alongside other Sharia regimes including Saudi Arabia and Iran?
German authorities say they have thwarted an Islamic extremist plot to launch an attack with the deadly toxin ricin. Federal prosecutors said a 29-year-old Tunisian who was arrested on Wednesday, started procuring material online including seeds needed for the creation of ricin in mid-May. They said he succeeded in creating the toxin this month and investigators found it in a search of his Cologne apartment.
Britain could face an influx of hundreds of battle-hardened, dangerous jihadis, says a top ministerial terrorism adviser, as he suggested the Government should “look positively” at prosecuting them in the UK. Jonathan Hall, the Government's independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, said the Government should “where possible” seek to prosecute British jihadis from Syria in the UK as part of its international responsibility to counter terrorism.
Two suspected Islamic State (IS) terrorists originally from Britain - dubbed The Beatles because of their accents - have been taken from Syria into American custody. Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh, dubbed "the worst of the worst" by Donald Trump, have been moved by American security services to an "undisclosed location" amid fears they could escape custody as Turkish troops invade the Syrian Kurdish-held region of north-eastern Syria.
Facebook still auto-generating Islamic State, al-Qaida pages,” by Desmond Butler and Barbara Ortutay, Associated Press, September 18, 2019:
WASHINGTON (AP) — In the face of criticism that Facebook is not doing enough to combat extremist messaging, the company likes to say that its automated systems remove the vast majority of prohibited content glorifying the Islamic State group and al-Qaida before it’s reported.
Watching the recent footage of Islamic State gang members haggling over the price of captured Christian women in a makeshift slave market — one of them wants a 15-year-old with green eyes, another wants to exchange a girl for a gun — I was reminded that Islamists are at least consistent in their hateful worldview and in a way uniquely honest. Even a terror gang as vile as the IRA tried to keep a lid on the rapes and paedophilia going on within its rancid ranks. But when Amnesty International first claimed in September that Isis were enslaving and abusing ‘hundreds, if not thousands’ of Yazidi women and children, it only took the group a few weeks to admit to the practice in their English language magazine, Dabiq, and breezily post videos of themselves doing just that.
Yet there are still a considerable number of people on the left making excuses for them — mostly at the Guardian, the house magazine of ‘the silly led by the sinister’, as the sainted Christopher Hitchens called the Not In My Name marchers. And with Isis so frank about its own foulness, I’ve come to the conclusion that certain strange types are so sympathetic to Islamism not despite the way it treats women — but, at least partly, because of it.
Books found in the library of an Islamic private school promoted extremism, inspectors found. Inspectors said school leaders told them they were "unaware of the existence of these texts" though they were found in the library and "stamped with the school's name". One book set out a series of aims which included "To help the Taliban government in the accomplishment of enforcement of Shari'ah in Afghanistan" and "To struggle for the creation of Islamic states in which the
A teenager who planned to carry out a terrorist outrage in London using a hunting knife, or else use the knife to steal a Rolex to fund his travel to Syria has been sentenced to five years in prison today (28 June). He was prosecuted by the CPS Counter Terrorism Division who said Ahmed had viewed violent propaganda videos to prepare for an attack. The videos included a Daesh-produced film he downloaded in June 2017 showing how to carry out a so-called “lone wolf” attack.
Young imams are being trained in a network of Islamic schools across the UK that have been accused of promoting intolerance and misogyny, a secret Government report has warned. The report claims preachers emerging from some of the dozens of Darul Uloom madrasas scattered across Britain have views as extreme as those held by radical clerics who move to the UK from Islamic countries – and may spread them to worshippers. The Mail on Sunday has identified 48 Darul Ulooms – which can be translated as House of Knowledge – that follow a strict syllabus called Dars-E-Nizami.
Al Qaeda has called upon its followers to unleash massive forest fires upon the United States this summer. Published in the latest edition of the notorious terror magazine, 'Inspire', are graphic instructions for the creation and ignition of 'ember bombs'
The caliphate is gone from Iraq and Syria, but the caliphate dreamers remain a global threat. “ISIS claims first attack in DR Congo, saying it killed soldiers near Uganda border,” by Joanne Stocker, The Defense Post, April 18, 2019:
I felt thoroughly vindicated over the weekend when two separate sources confirmed that Shamima was not the innocent housewife of Raqqa she claimed to be, minding the children and doing the ironing while hubby went off for an honest day’s mass murdering. Begum, as I strongly suspected, appears to have been a member of the al-Khansaa Brigade, Isil’s all-female
About four years ago, in August 2014, ISIS began slaughtering the Yezidis in Iraq and committed a genocide against this ancient community, massacring over 5,000, abducting 7,450 women and girls who were then sold into sexual slavery and driving over 500,000 out of their ancestral homes. Although the Yezidi genocide has received widespread international recognition due to the indisputable evidence that has been presented including the existence of mass graves, witness testimonies and ISIS publications online inciting against Yezidis and documenting massacres of them, four years on, the Yezidis have not yet received justice for the horrific atrocities that were committed against them. The question remains, why is this the case and when will there be justice for the Yezidi people?
In Iraq and Syria, where the crimes of the Yezidi genocide were perpetrated, it is unlikely that the Yezidi victims will get justice. In Syria, rebels allied with Turkey have destroyed Yezidi holy sites and forcefully converted Yezidis in Afrin to Islam. There are also reports of Yezidis being forced to wear the hijab in these areas. So far, Turkey’s allies have been able to act against the Yezidis in Afrin with impunity, without any interference from the outside world.
Admin: Why hasn't this mosque been closed? After Sousse Tunsia closed 40 mosques, when wil the UK take similar action?
A sermon at the mosque where the Manchester bomber worshipped called for the support of armed jihadist fighters, according to two Muslim scholars. An imam at Didsbury Mosque in December 2016 was recorded praying for "victory" for "our brothers and sisters right now in Aleppo and Syria and Iraq"
The Islamic State terror group, also known as ISIS or ISIL, pushed two gay men, blindfolded, to their deaths from a roof in Homs, Syria, last August. After plummeting to the ground, with their heads splattering on the concrete, they were stoned by an angry mob, which included children. All of it was recorded and posted to the Internet. This year, the U.K.-based Observatory for Human Rights estimates at least 25 people have been killed by ISIS for being gay: six stoned, three shot in the head and 16 thrown from highrise buildings. “The people of Lot,” or so the LGBT community is called by Muslims, a Koranic euphemism for sodomy — are singled out and executed by the religious group simply for being gay.
But perhaps the fact most hidden by the mainstream media is that you don’t have to be part of ISIS to believe this. It is part of Muslim Sharia law, shared commonly in Middle Eastern countries.
The Islamic State group on Monday claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing in eastern Afghanistan that killed at least 19 people, mostly Sikhs and Hindus. The bomber targeted a delegation from the minority communities as it was traveling to the governor’s residence in the eastern city of Jalalabad on Sunday for a meeting with President Ashraf Ghani.
Once branded a 'no-go' zone by authorities, the Paris suburb of Trappes has become a recruiting ground for Islamic State – and ground zero in France’s struggle to integrate Muslims into its staunchly secular state. READ MORE: https://on.rt.com/8z6g
A damning report from the European Union’s cross-border police agency, Europol, revealed that the number of jihadi-inspired attacks “more than doubled” last year. The organisation’s annual ‘EU Terrorism Situation and Trend Report (TE-SAT)’ states that 9 EU countries reported a total of
A politician who claimed there was 'no proof' that ISIS exists has been given a key role protecting children from radicalisation. Birmingham councillor Safia Akhtar Noor was suspended as a school governor after making the comment following the Westminster terror attack last year.
nti-terror police in Germany have raided the flat of a Tunisian man charged with making the toxic chemical ricin. 29-year-old Sief Allah H was charged yesterday with producing a biological weapon and for “preparing a serious act of violence against the state.”
The Islamic State recently called on Muslims in Russia to murder Christians “as a punishment for their disbelief in Allah.” And here we are. “BREAKING: 4 terrorist gunmen armed with petrol bombs storm church – multiple dead,” by Henry Holloway,
Candidates who have denied the existence of Islamic State, spread anti-Semitism and homophobia online, and have been convicted of serious voter fraud are set to stand for Labour and as independents in Birmingham council elections, one of the UK’s most corrupt local authorities. Former governors of a Trojan Horse school, where hard-line Muslims attempted spread an extreme ideology, have also been out campaigning for Lab
Of late, more emboldened jihadis have dropped the façade that Zionism lies at the heart of the conflict. In an article unambiguously titled, "Why We Hate You & Why We Fight You," the Islamic State confessed that "We hate you, first and foremost, because you are disbelievers." As for any and all political "grievances," these are "secondary" reasons for the jihad:
What's important to understand here is that although some might argue that your foreign policies are the extent of what drives our hatred, this particular reason for hating you is secondary [...] The fact is, even if you were to stop bombing us, imprisoning us, torturing us, vilifying us, and usurping our lands, we would continue to hate you because our primary reason for hating you will not cease to exist until you embrace Islam. Even if you wereto pay (the) jizyah and live under the authority of Islam in humiliation, we would continue to hate you [emphasis added].
From IS's and other Islamists' perspective, then, this threefold choice—conversion, subjugation/jizya, or the sword—is the ultimate source of conflict between Islam and everyone else... Nor is Islamic supremacism confined to modern jihadis—history makes an equally ironclad case.
