1. Remember the Ottawa U student who converted to Islam and went and joined the terrorists in the Islamic State, made a video threatening Canada and then was reported killed? Well Interpol has just released a “red notice” on him. Apparently rumors of his death had been exaggerated, and this is why one might wish to treat the story about Al-Baghdadi having been mortally wounded with due suspicion.
Yesterday’s Mail on Sunday had an interesting account of a meeting in London of Nazis, neo-Nazis, British National Party types and anti—Semites of various other hues. The paper infiltrated the meeting and exposed what was said – which is a very good service and deserves praise.

3. US Warships appear to be under power on way to Yemen. For some reason.
4. Our religious readers may want to cross themselves or genuflect before watching this video. It is 2 minutes of Bill Clinton telling what appears to be the truth about the Islamic State. That has to be one of the 7 seals.

Amnesty International has rejected a motion to tackle the rise in antisemitic attacks in Britain at its annual conference.
The motion was tabled by Amnesty member Andrew Thorpe-Apps in March who said it was defeated at the International AGM on Sunday by 468 votes to 461.
Mr Thorpe Apps said: “It was the only resolution to be defeated during the whole conference.”
Amnesty International UK press officer Neil Durkin said: “After a really interesting debate where everyone condemned discrimination against all ethnic and religious groups, our membership decided not to pass this resolution calling for a campaign with a single focus.
(Discrimination is the single most important skill a human being can have. No one but no one can truly be against discrimination. AI made a discriminating judgement call when they turned down this motion.)
The commander of Iran’s ground forces said that strikes could be carried out on Saudi cities including missiles if it does not leave Yemen.
The commander of the ground troops in the Iranian army, General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan, threatened Saudi Arabia with military strikes if it doesn’t stop the fighting in Yemen.
According to the Iranian Arabic language channel El-Alam, Pourdastan said that the Islamic Republic is not interested in getting into a conflict with Saudi Arabia. He called on Riyadh to stop fighting against her brothers in Yemen and said “by doing so she is entering a war of attrition which might expose her to severe strikes.”
