1. White house is questioned on the evacuation of the press room due to bomb scare
2. IS claims capture of Libya’s Sirte: SITE
Dubai (AFP) – The Islamic State group claimed to have seized full control Tuesday of the Libyan city of Sirte from the Fajr Libya militia, including a power plant, according to a US monitor.
SITE Intelligence Group said the jihadist group had published photographs of “IS fighters engaged in clashes, sitting atop heavy guns, exploring the power plant and town, as well as bodies of dead Fajr Libya fighters”.
The claim comes nearly two weeks after IS overran the airport in Sirte — the home town of slain dictator Moamer Kadhafi — in the group’s first such military gain in Libya.
3. ISIS captures 88 Eritrean Christians in Libya, US official confirms
The ISIS terror group kidnapped 88 Eritrean Christians from a people-smugglers’ caravan in Libya last week, a U.S. defense official confirmed Monday.
The defense official confirmed initial reports of the mass kidnapping to Fox News after seeing a recent intelligence report. The independent Libya Herald newspaper reported that the convoy was ambushed by militants south of Tripoli before dawn this past Wednesday morning.
Meron Estafanos, the co-founder of the Stockholm-based International Commission on Eritrean Refugees, told the paper that the group of migrants included “about 12 Eritrean Muslims and some Egyptians. They put them in another truck and they put 12 Eritrean women Christians in a smaller pick-up”.
4. Muslims booted for praying atop Empire State Building get payout
A Muslim family from Long Island who were booted from the Empire State Building’s observation deck because they were praying has settled their lawsuit for an undisclosed sum, the Post has learned.
Fahad and Amina Tirmizi had said in their federal lawsuit that they and their two young children had begun silently reciting their evening prayers in a quiet spot on the 86th-floor deck at about 11?p.m. July 2, 2013, when two security guards roughly intervened.
The Farmingville couple was seeking $5 million in damages in the suit, filed last year in Manhattan federal court.
(Every activity in the world has a time and a place. Some private some public. But threatening behaviour by muslims must be allowed everywhere and anytime or get ready to pay out the nose)
5. Directive 11: Obama’s Secret Islamist Plan
(as was pointed out by who sent me the post, this would be the stuff of total tin foil hat crowds if it wasn’t on a reputable site and similar stories on other reputable sites)
Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.
Behind the rise of ISIS, the Libyan Civil War, the unrest in Egypt, Yemen and across the region may be a single classified document.
That document is Presidential Study Directive 11.
You can download Presidential Study Directive 10 on “Preventing Mass Atrocities” from the White House website, but as of yet no one has been able to properly pry number 11 out of Obama Inc.
Presidential Study Directive 10, in which Obama asked for non-military options for stopping genocide, proved to be a miserable failure. The Atrocities Prevention Board’s only use was as a fig leaf for a policy that had caused the atrocities. And the cause of those atrocities is buried inside Directive 11.
With Obama’s typical use of technicalities to avoid transparency, Directive 11 was used to guide policy in the Middle East without being officially submitted. It is possible that it will never be submitted. And yet the Directive 11 group was described as “just finishing its work” when the Arab Spring began.
6. IDF Rehearsing for Nightmare Scenario: 4,000 Killed in Days
Security forces are currently rehearsing and preparing for a scenario in which Israel’s enemies launch a “carpet” missile attack that Iron Dome will be unable to counter, due to the sheer number of missiles involved, Arutz Sheva has learned from knowledgeable sources that wish to remain anonymous.
In this scenario, up to 4,000 Israelis will be killed in the first days of the attack, which could happen as early as this summer.
“Iran is seeking to cover Israel with intense fire,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned in a special briefing for journalists at the week’s end.
“In Lebanon, the Iranians are inserting the most advanced weapons in the world, and strengthening Hezbollah, so that it can hit any spot in Israel,” Netanyahu was quoted as saying in the daily Makor Rishon. “They are trying to build a second front in the Golan, and of course, in Gaza.”
Former prime minister and defense minister Ehud Barak also sounded dire warnings last week, regarding Hezbollah’s ability to deal a heavy blow to Israel, and Israel’s unpreparedness for this.
7. Britons who want to fight for ISIS in Syria are travelling via CANADA to avoid detection by security services
Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said the tactics used by radicalised extremists to escape being caught by police were becoming ‘increasingly sophisticated’.
He warned it was a ‘continuing struggle’ for the security services to keep tabs on people from the UK determined to travel to the region.
Some 700 British citizens are thought to have travelled to Syria and Iraq and there are growing fears about them returning to the UK to plot terror attacks here.
Airlines operating in the UK have been told to check all teenagers boarding flights to Turkey about whether they plan to join ISIS under new plans.
8. EU demands Hungary and Poland crack down on ‘hate speech’ because Hungary thinks EU policies on settlement of illegal immigrants are insane.
Thank you CB Sashenka, M., Buck, GoV., Richard, Wrath of Khan and all.
1 – We can expect more bomb threats, then once we are considering them a joke there will be a real bomb.
5 & 6 – It is nice when the experts see the same thing( am but considering the picture eventsare painting it is very scary also.
“Airlines operating in the UK have been told to check all teenagers boarding flights to Turkey about whether they plan to join ISIS under new plans.”
And the Soviet era continues where the ticket collectors now must ask where you are going after your ride – and report you if you tell them you have the right not to be molested.
If a British citizen wants to fight abroad, on either side, that is their choice. The UK government already vacillates on whose side they weaponize for Black Gold. You never know, ISIS might be their best friend in the future. Criminal activity abroad is a crime according to that county and whether there’s an extradition treaty with the UK. People go to Amsterdam to smoke marijuana legally under Dutch Laws. Are they saying they will stopped from going into Europe on suspicion they are going to commit this crime? Not on your boyfriend’s husband’s life.
The Socialists do not live under laws of equality but Laws of Equality that are preferential for them and discriminatory for you. One day they are minded to do this and the next minded to do the opposite.
The Muslims they brought into the UK are the very same ones leaving it to fight. They are not radicalized but excited that the Caliphate may be near, heralding the return of Jesus and Muhammad. They are people of good faith, because their Koran tells them so.
History has shown wherever Muslims go they destroy civilizations, and the only way to contain them is a Military Leadership/Communist Dictatorship. The Shah of Iran to the President of Syria put there by the CIA, by men of reason, and removed by their children’s children: boys in season.
Muslims respond only to strength. Otherwise, it’s pick on the white child to make it look fair so as not to offend them.
The UK government brought them into the country deliberately to rub the British people’s faces in it. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1249797/Labour-threw-open-doors-mass-migration-secret-plot-make-multicultural-UK.html
