Before the news links, a muslim who attends an Edmonton muslim school just wrote a comment under a story about how a gay man, who was protesting the teachings at that school about how homosexuals should be treated, had his car attacked. In the comment, he managed to turn it around completely so that the school is the victim. It makes for amusing reading.

(Hopefully Cameroon will use this as inertia to continue and scale up their policy of no islamic indoctrination in the nation)
At least eight people were killed and about 100 others were kidnapped by suspected Boko Haram militants in an overnight raid on a village near Cameroon’s northern border, a local government and a military source said.
Tchakarmari, the village targeted early on Tuesday, lies north of Maroua, where dozens of people were killed in a series of suicide bombings by the Nigerian Islamist group last month.
“Residents said the attackers headed back to Nigeria where Cameroon is not allowed to pursue them,” the local government source in the Far North region said.
A senior military officer deployed as part of a Cameroonian military operation aimed at curbing the spillover of violence from Boko Haram’s stronghold in northeastern Nigeria said the attackers had crossed over from Nigeria shortly after midnight.

President warns US Jews that without nuclear pact, America will have to attack Iran — and Israel will bear the brunt of the response
WASHINGTON — If the US Congress shoots down the Iranian nuclear deal, America will eventually be pressured into a military strike against Tehran’s nuclear facilities, which will in turn increase terror against Israel, US President Barack Obama told Jewish leaders Tuesday, a source who was present at the meeting said.
During the two-hour meeting, Obama said it was legitimate for opponents of the deal to lobby lawmakers to reject it, but added that a discussion focused on personal attacks, rather than the merits of the deal, could jeopardize the coherence of the American Jewish community and ultimately the resilience of US-Israel relations, according to Greg Rosenbaum, the chair of the National Jewish Democratic Council.
In a bid to convince the US Jewish community to support the deal, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden hosted 20 Jewish leaders from across the political and religious spectrum at the White House’s Cabinet Room, hours after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged members of the Jewish Federations of North America in a video address to fight the deal.
There are “strong” links between June’s Tunisia beach massacre and the killings at the Bardo Museum in the country’s capital in March, British police say.
Metropolitan Police counter-terrorism officers say they are now connecting the two attacks based on evidence.
The Bardo Museum attack saw 22 people killed, while 38 tourists, including 30 British nationals, were killed in the resort of Sousse in June.
Tunisian authorities have arrested 150 people to date over the Sousse attack.
Of those, 15 have been charged with terrorism offences.
(Again, we see the pointlessness of the law and order approach to terrorism. This is a military problem. The rest of the world knew that these attacks are connected by an ideology which has a political ambition. The British police would seem to be the last ones to know as they are looking for evidence that would pass muster on a law and order basis. Soon, they may be too busy defending their police stations from attack to be able to use that much scrutiny.)
