An older woman was shot first as a gunman fired shots from a car in the Bavarian city.
She is understood to be an 82-year-old woman.
The victim died at the scene, police said.
The rampage continued when the gunman shot a cyclist dead before a striking a farmer and another motorist, police said.
(The invisible man strikes again! So far, none of the stories we have on this describe the person. Somehow, the gas station fellow who caught and tied up the suspect managed to hold him for the police without actually seeing the person. Anyone wondering what the severity of the issue with the OSCE is all about really needs to understand that in the context of this kind of ‘reporting’. Two videos are out for translation on this now)
LONDON – The British government on Thursday told all U.K. tourists to leave Tunisia because a terrorist attack is “highly likely” and the North African country’s government has not done enough to enhance security.
The Foreign Office advised against all but essential travel to Tunisia, a popular holiday destination for Britons. It said British tourists on package holidays should contact their travel agents, which will arrange flights to bring them home.
Thirty-eight tourists, 30 of them British, were killed on June 26 when a gunman stormed the Tunisian beach resort of Sousse. In March, 22 people died in an attack at the National Bardo Museum outside Tunis.
3. Islamic radicalism is real, but certifying imams is a terrible idea (Ezra Levant)
“The Canadian Senate’s committee on security and defence has called for the government to, quote, “investigate the options that are available for the training and certification of imams in Canada.”
They’re proposing the wrong solution to a serious problem.”
A leading Northern Ireland Muslim who praised Islamic State is set to be called as the main prosecution witness against a Christian preacher charged with making offensive remarks about Islam.
In legal documents seen exclusively by the Belfast Telegraph, Dr Raied Al-Wazzan of the Belfast Islamic Centre is named as the chief witness in the prosecution case against Pastor James McConnell.
The evangelical preacher faces up to six months in prison if convicted over a sermon last year in which he branded Islam as “heathen” and “Satanic”.
In his statement to the PSNI, Dr Al-Wazzan denounces the pastor’s “terrible comments” and describes his “general sweeping statements” as “offensive and disgusting”.
(…but global warming is supposed to be caused by CO2, and volcanoes produce millions of tons of CO2 so it should actually accelerate global warming by the IPCC theory… but they say volcanoes are cooling the earth but…)
Since 1998, the average rate of Earth’s rising global surface temperature has relaxed, much to the chagrin of climate scientists whose climate-model predictions told a different story. Now, researchers say they’ve found the cause of Earth’s global warming “hiatus.”
According to a new study, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, volcanoes are the reason the average rate of warming dropped from .31 degrees Fahrenheit per decade between 1970 and 1998 to .072 degrees Fahrenheit per decade between 1998 and 2012. This “muted surface warming” was the result of a series of 17 small volcanic eruptions, beginning in 2000, that spewed enough aerosols into the atmosphere to explain the disparity between climate change models and actual warming trends.
The reason is what researchers call the “cooling influences” of volcanic gases. Sulphur has a sun-blocking effect, scattering incoming sunlight and offsetting emissions of heat-trapping gases. The influence of these volcanic ejections has been largely ignored, researchers claim. Scientists say the effect accounts for about 15 percent of the difference between predicted and observed warming since 2000.
(The actual reason for the temperature leveling out and cooling is because in 98, the sun spot cycle that drove the warming trend ended)
6. Across Iran and Iraq, uniformed soldiers marched in what they call, ‘Al Quds’ day, presumably ramping up for the day they attack Israel and take Jerusalem.
At least five people were killed when militants in the Somali capital Mogadishu attacked two hotels.
A security operation has now ended at one of the hotels, near the parliament building.
The BBC’s Moalimu Mohammed, in the city, says the two hotels were busy with people breaking their Ramadan fast when they were attacked at 18:10 local time (15:10 GMT).
The Islamist militant group al-Shabab has said it was behind the attack.
Our reporter says the two hotels – the Wehliya and Siyaad – are among the best known in the city.
(“Militants” ay? I can think of more accurate adjectives for religious muslims who attack a hotel)
A group of 20 Christian Iraqis seeking asylum in the US after fleeing from ISIS have been held by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for over four months now, Al Jazeera reports.
The imprisoned Iraqis — known as Chaldeans — are being detained for an unusually long time with no explanation even though they have family members willing to sponsor them in San Diego County, according to Al Jazeera.
Mark Arabo, an activist for the Chaldean community in San Diego, told Al Jazeera that ICE claimed it didn’t have sufficient resources to process the Chaldeans’ claims. Arabo says that explanation is hard to believe.
Thank you CB Sashenka, M., Richard, Wrath of Khan, Lolly Parton, and all who sent in materials. There will be more very shortly, including another speech from the PEGIDA event in Malmoe Sweden early this month which was just translated and is very good.
Lastly, any farmers reading this site may want to arm their sheep next Saturday, July 18th, as its the holiday after the muslim, month long tradition of skipping lunch and doubling down on dinner, which is usually celebrated with massive slaughtering of animals all over the place, mostly sheep and there is no shortage of stories of sheep gone missing around that time of the year and even of farmers being arrested for running illegal abattoirs for having sheep slaughtered on their farms.
