Rosemont College was renting space to the El Forkane school, run by Mohamed Ridha Rahmaoui.
An investigation by TVA, QMI Agency ’s sister TV station, found links on the school’s website to sites promoting radical Islam ideology, including Salafism, one of the more fundamental strains of the faith.
While Rahmaoui, who also runs a kindergarten under the El Forkane name, insisted that he is in favour of secular education, that’s contradicted by one Arabic-language sermon that was linked to on his school’s website.
“Beware of the enemies of Islam; they will always want trouble, they set traps, the largest of which is their schools,” it read. (CBC Variant of the story)
NIAMEY (Reuters) – Islamist fighters from Nigeria’s Boko Haram sect attacked a prison in neighbouring Niger overnight, hours before Niger’s parliament was due to vote on joining a regional offensive against the militants, witnesses said.
Heavy gunfire rang out as Niger’s army repelled the attack, Boko Haram’s third assault on the border town of Diffa in four days, residents and military sources told Reuters.
Over five months after last summer’s Gaza conflict ended, reconstruction of the territory has effectively ground to a halt, with the UN-designed postwar framework failing to move beyond its first phase. While recent statements by some international officials have put the onus on the donor community for failing to deliver on pledges, the reality is that continued divisions between Hamas and Fatah are the primary obstacle. According to the deal reached at war’s end, the prerequisite for any wide-ranging reconstruction was the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority returning to Gaza. The PA has shown no inclination to make good on its commitments, however, and Hamas has yet to relinquish real authority over the territory. With the two factions at a stalemate (see “Gaza’s Explosion Waiting to Happen,” Politico) and the dire economic conditions that led to the war still in place, many believe that it is only a matter of time before another explosion erupts in Gaza.

Never before Reported: Norquist’s Brother-in-Law Cofounded Islamic Institute
What has not been reported until now are Norquist’s other family ties to pro-Hamas Palestinian activism, including the previously unknown relationship with a man named Majed Tomeh who has been married to Norquist’s sister Loraine for decades and who was a co-founder of Norquist’s Islamic Institute.
Majed Tomeh is a long-time Palestinian activist. In the 1980s, when he attended Harvard Business School, Tomeh was the coordinator of the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee in Boston…you’ll remember that this is same ADC that Khaled Saffuri was the national development director of in the same time period.
Why has Majed Tomeh never been mentioned by Grover Norquist as a co-founder of the Islamic Institute?

BEIRUT (AP) — The U.S. ambassador to Lebanon said Sunday that $25 million worth of weapons and ammunition have arrived in Beirut, the latest American assistance to Lebanon’s army as it fights Islamic extremists along the border with Syria.
Ambassador David Hale said the equipment includes more than 70 M198 howitzers and over 26 million rounds of ammunition and artillery “of all shapes and sizes, including heavy artillery.”
Islamic extremists have launched several attacks on Lebanese troops over the past months in areas near the Syrian border, killing and wounding scores of troops. The most serious attack occurred in August, when members of the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front and the Islamic State group captured two dozen Lebanese soldiers. They have killed four of them and still hold the rest.
Thank you Draculea, M., PM., ML., CB Sashenka, The Right Planet, Wrath of Khan and so many who have been vigilant and helped compile this post and all the posts today. There are rumors that there may be some more focused information about the growing threat to the West this year. We shall know soon enough either way.
