1. Tunisia arrests 32 militant Islamists planning ‘spectacular’ attacks

Tunisia arrested 32 militant Islamists, some of them returning from fighting in Syria, who planned “spectacular” attacks, officials said on Saturday.

News of the arrests came one day after a secular-Islamist coalition cabinet headed by Prime Minister Habib Essid took office. The new cabinet faces many challenges, including Islamist groups that emerged after a 2011 uprising.

“Counter-terrorism forces foiled plots to carry out spectacular attacks against vital installations, including the Interior Ministry, security stations and civilian buildings in the capital Tunis,” said Mohammed Ali Aroui, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry.

2. France: Street artist brutally attacked for “Coexist” artwork

(There are a few clues that might suggest this artist is an idiot. The first is that he refuses to identify who attacked him because it interferes with his prejudice about how the world is. I find anyone who consciously suppresses important facts to support a narrative tends to be anti-reality. Second is he gave up who attacked him in the manner in which he denied giving up who attacked him. That would make him an idiot or perhaps a kind of semiconscious hypocrite. Lastly he dresses in the manner of a religious muslim and acts like people are foolish when they treat him as one. I am pretty confident he himself would treat a man in a police or military uniform or a fireman or an SS officer etc. etc. as he feels about those professions and not think himself the fool for associating the symbol with the person wearing it. Classic leftist sanctimony all around)

Combo won’t describe the “young people” who attacked him, as “it would only add fuel to the fire.” In saying that, he makes clear who they were. Even though Combo dresses in the garb of a devout Muslim, his art offends Muslim hardliners who don’t like seeing the Islamic crescent next to the Star of David and the cross. “Coexist,” indeed.

3. Gardai probe Irish businesswoman in Islamist weapons plot

The investigation centres on claims that the woman represents an Irish-based Islamist who is suspected of funding jihadi groups waging war in the Middle East.

The Sunday Independent understands it has been alleged the man was prepared to invest vast sums of money into secret financial schemes based in Russia.

It is claimed money from across three continents is being used to invest in the highly lucrative financial programmes which can net investors huge returns. According to the claims being investigated by the Garda Counter-Terrorism Unit, a multimillion-dollar weapons deal was being facilitated by the Irish businesswoman.

Former KGB operatives based in Russia are said to be the source of the weapons and the deal was organised through businessmen based in the Middle East.

The weapons left a port in Russia, in a Turkish-registered ship, and it is claimed they were destined for extremists fighting in Syria and Iraq.
