The boy had been living in a juvenile shelter in Dachau before travelling to Turkey, reports Erasmus Monitoring, a blog which covers developments in the Islamist scene in Germany.
Newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung confirmed the veracity of the story with security officials on Tuesday.
The blog reported that the boy, whom it identified as Erkan, travelled through Europe on a fake passport with a female cousin. Their goal was Raqqa, the “capital city” of Isis’ self-proclaimed Islamic caliphate.
The man behind the Copenhagen shootings in February has now been featured in the latest edition of an Isis propaganda magazine, hailing him as a ‘soldier of the Caliphate’.
Omar El-Hussein, the gunman who killed two civilians and wounded six police officers in the Copenhagen shootings in February this year, has now appeared in Isis recruitment material, according to Berlingske.
The latest version of the Isis publication Dabiq – named after a town that features in Islamic prophecies as an end-of-times battlefield between Muslims and Christians – features a number of people whom have been responsible for attacks on Western targets in the past year, including El-Hussein.
An apparent Islamic State recruitment document found in Pakistan’s lawless tribal lands reveals that the extremist group has grand ambitions of building a new terrorist army in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and triggering a war in India to provoke an Armageddon-like “end of the world.”
The 32-page Urdu-language document obtained by American Media Institute (AMI) and reviewed by USA TODAY details a plot to attack U.S. soldiers as they withdraw from Afghanistan and target American diplomats and Pakistani officials.
AMI obtained the document from a Pakistani citizen with connections inside the Pakistani Taliban and had it independently translated from Urdu by Harvard researcher and translator Mustafa Samdani. The Pakistani’s identity was shared with USA TODAY, which has agreed not to identify him publicly because of concerns for his safety.
The document was reviewed by three U.S. intelligence officials, who said they believe the document is authentic based on its unique markings and the fact that language used to describe leaders, the writing style and religious wording match other documents from the Islamic State, also known as ISIL and ISIS. They asked to remain anonymous because they are not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
4. Allen West article on Some family connections to Sec. State John Kerry that deserve more scrutiny than they got.
5. A gay pride march took place the other day through Rinkby Sweden with predictable results. The article at Snaphanen doesn’t cover how the media is dealing with two of its favored groups at odds. Which would be a very interesting study. Video below and thank you Liberty Dk. for looking it over for us. Click over to Snaphanen with Google Translate for any missed info bits.
(In the video, muslims chant anti gay taunts and insults etc. and demand to know why they are there, in a muslim area)
6. Here is an interesting graph. It shows the decline in test results for students in Sweden as a result of mass immigration. The top curve is ethnic Swedes, the second graph is total student population. Conspicuously and staggeringly important line missing, is the ‘students of foreign origin only’. Funny that. Article here

TORONTO — The greater Toronto Jewish community is disquieted and on the alert after three hooded men took photos and yelled threats outside a Thornhill synagogue.
York Regional Police received a call from Beth Avraham Yoseph of Toronto (BAYT) on Friday, according to Const. Laura Nicolle. That afternoon, alerts went out via email and social media from synagogues across the GTA.
“This past Wednesday night, three men with concealed faces were observed taking photos of BAYT,’’ read one alert posted to Facebook and viewed by more than 20,000 people. ‘‘When they were approached, they yelled “F— Jews. Watch!”, jumped into their black Volkswagen Golf and drove off. The car’s licence plates were covered. Unfortunately, they were out of range of the BAYT cameras. Please be alert when walking, especially near our shul, and be on the look-out for such vehicles and/or people.”
Thank you Maria J., M., Nicolai Sennels, Richard, Liberty Dk., Buck, WTD., and many more for your continued efforts.
The policy of not posting materials (to the main posts) that deal with US internal issues unless they are relevant to islam or totalitarian leftism, is a policy, to borrow from the Bard, “more honored in the breach than the observance” here at VladTepesBlog. It is one that we struggle with however as so much comes up that is so important but which isn’t really what we are after and as tempting as it may be, we must leave it out. Not to say that it shouldn’t be in the comments or discussed, but it is easy to become entranced by partizan issues and lose the focus.
Even so, this story about an illegal that did a staggering amount of harm to many really good people deserves to be seen. Yes, this is because Obama’s policies are leading to many such cases today and one wonders if that was the intent, but also to share in the victim’s grief and frustration. It is always possible that enough public outrage can get, if not Obama’s policy to change, the implementation of it can be radically altered. After all, at the end of the day, its down to the public. Volunteers at the border like volunteers outside military recruitment centers etc. As government agencies betray their purpose, its down to us and we can do the things that need doing.
Also there was an ongoing discussion about a rocket engine that shouldn’t work but claims exist that it does, which has been the subject of some discussion here, There is new information on it here. I have no idea if this is valid science or not but its interesting that it remains in the news. The comments are fun also.
