1. Interview with Al Assad who says we are under threat.

Judges should allow Muslim women to appear in court wearing a full-face veil, Britain’s most senior judge has suggested.
Lord Neuberger, the President of the Supreme Court, said it was crucial that courts and judges “show, and be seen to show” respect towards different customs.
He said this included having an understanding of the “different cultural and social habits” of those appearing as witnesses, defendants or jurors in cases.
His comments, in a lecture about the need for courts to be less intimidating, come at a time of uncertainty over the place of the Muslim niqab, or full face-veil, in the legal system.
(And what happens when muslims demand that sharia norms be applied to the nature of crimes as well as the punishment? And when they demand that all non-muslims comply to their values and customs? That would still be being sensitive to their values would it not?)

The U.S. Consulate was the target of the attack, ISIS said.
At least two people were killed and five injured, police said.
