  1. Nuclear smugglers shopped radioactive material to Islamic State, other terrorists: AP report (chicagotribune, Oct 6, 2015)
    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-nuclear-smugglers-islamic-state-terrorists-20151006-story.html

    “Oer the pulsating beat at an exclusive nightclub, the arms smuggler made his pitch to a client: 2.5 million euros for enough radioactive cesium to contaminate several city blocks.

    It was earlier this year, and the two men were plotting their deal at an unlikely spot: the terrace of Cocos Prive, a dance club and sushi bar in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova.

    “You can make a dirty bomb, which would be perfect for the Islamic State,” the smuggler said. “If you have a connection with them, the business will go smoothly.”

    But the smuggler, Valentin Grossu, wasn’t sure the client was for real — and he was right to worry. The client was an informant, and it took some 20 meetings to persuade Grossu that he was an authentic Islamic State representative. Eventually, the two men exchanged cash for a sample in a sting operation that landed Grossu in jail….”

    • Nuclear smuggling deals ‘thwarted’ in Moldova (BBC, Oct 6, 2015)
      http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34461732

      “Moldovan police working with the FBI are reported to have stopped four attempts by smugglers to sell nuclear material to extremists in the Middle East over the past five years.

      The most recent case was in February when undercover agents were offered a large amount of radioactive caesium, the Associated Press reports.

      Investigators say much of the material is believed to come from Russia.

      They say some gangs have alleged links to Russia’s intelligence services.

      Police and judicial authorities in Moldova shared information with AP to highlight how dangerous the nuclear black market has become, the news agency says.

      They say the deterioration in relations between Russia and the West has made it more difficult to know whether smugglers are succeeding in selling radioactive material originating from Russia abroad.

  2. AP INVESTIGATION: Nuclear Smugglers Sought Terrorist Buyers (abcnews, Oct 26, 2015)
    http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/ap-investigation-nuclear-smugglers-sought-terrorist-buyers-34298926

    “In the backwaters of Eastern Europe, authorities working with the FBI have interrupted four attempts in the past five years by gangs with suspected Russian connections that sought to sell radioactive material to Middle Eastern extremists, The Associated Press has learned. The latest known case came in February this year, when a smuggler offered a huge cache of deadly cesium — enough to contaminate several city blocks — and specifically sought a buyer from the Islamic State group.

    Criminal organizations, some with ties to the Russian KGB’s successor agency, are driving a thriving black market in nuclear materials in the tiny and impoverished Eastern European country of Moldova, investigators say. The successful busts, however, were undercut by striking shortcomings: Kingpins got away, and those arrested evaded long prison sentences, sometimes quickly returning to nuclear smuggling, AP found.

    Moldovan police and judicial authorities shared investigative case files with the AP in an effort to spotlight how dangerous the nuclear black market has become. They say the breakdown in cooperation between Russia and the West means that it has become much harder to know whether smugglers are finding ways to move parts of Russia’s vast store of radioactive materials — an unknown quantity of which has leached into the black market.

    “We can expect more of these cases,” said Constantin Malic, a Moldovan police officer who investigated all four cases. “As long as the smugglers think they can make big money without getting caught, they will keep doing it.”

    In wiretaps, videotaped arrests, photographs of bomb-grade material, documents and interviews, AP found a troubling vulnerability in the anti-smuggling strategy. From the first known Moldovan case in 2010 to the most recent one in February, a pattern has emerged: Authorities pounce on suspects in the early stages of a deal, giving the ringleaders a chance to escape with their nuclear contraband — an indication that the threat from the nuclear black market in the Balkans is far from under control….

    “NEW YORK — A former president of the U.N. General Assembly was arrested Tuesday and charged with accepting over $1 million in bribes and a trip to New Orleans for his family from a billionaire Chinese real estate mogul.

    John Ashe, the U.N. ambassador from Antigua and Barbuda who served in the largely ceremonial post from September 2013 to September 2014, faces conspiracy- and bribery-related charges along with five others, including Francis Lorenzo, a deputy U.N. ambassador from the Dominican Republic.

    Those charged in a criminal complaint unsealed Tuesday in Manhattan federal court included Chinese billionaire Ng Lap Seng, who was arrested two weeks ago along with his chief assistant, Jeff C. Yin, a U.S. citizen whose bail was revoked last week after investigators said he lied to them after his arrest.

    According to court papers, Ashe used his U.N. positions to introduce a document supporting a multibillion-dollar U.N.-sponsored conference center that Ng hoped to build as his legacy in Macau, where he lived. Prosecutors said the conference center would function as a sort of satellite operation for the world body.

    The scheme unfolded over the course of nearly three years, from 2011 through 2014, and included Ashe’s tenure as General Assembly head, prosecutors said. Authorities said in return for bribes, Ashe used his U.N. authority to promote Ng’s interests and helped Ng meet government officials from Antigua who could help him with investments….”

  8. Scotland Yard accuses the BBC of hampering its investigations into historical child sexual abuse (telegraph, Oct 6, 2015)
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/11915758/Scotland-Yard-accuses-the-BBC-of-hampering-its-investigations-into-historical-child-sexual-abuse.html

    “Scotland Yard has accused the BBC of undermining its investigation into historical child sex abuse, claiming that the corporation’s actions risked deterring victims from coming forward.

    An hour-long Panorama investigation aired on BBC One last night, scrutinising allegations of a historical paedophile ring in Westminster.

    On the programme, a man known only as David, claimed he may have been led by campaigners into making serious allegations against members of the establishment.

    David said he had provided the names of VIPs, including former home secretary Leon Brittan, “as a joke suggestion to start with”, but that he later repeated them.

    He also alleged that he called the police with concerns that Chris Fay, who worked for the now-defunct National Association of Young People In Care, was ‘putting words in his mouth’.

    Panorama claimed that Mr Fay had been investigated by police for perverting the course of justice but that charges were never brought.

    Chris Fay denied putting words into ‘David’s mouth’.

    The Met has previously singled out the BBC for showing pictures of possible suspects to the main witness in the Operation Midland probe, a man given the alias “Nick”, who was at the centre of yesterday’s documentary.

    In an appeal for witnesses when the inquiry first started, police described him as “credible” and “true”.

    Officers later conceded that using such language may have suggested it was pre-empting the outcome of the investigation, when that was not the case.

    Responding to claims made on Panorama, the Met reiterated it would not be giving a “running commentary” on the progress of Operation Midland.

    Scotland Yard said that the BBC’s actions “could compromise the evidential chain should a case ever proceed to court”.

    Responding to claims made on Panorama, the Met reiterated it would not be giving a “running commentary” on the progress of Operation Midland.

    Scotland Yard said that the BBC’s actions “could compromise the evidential chain should a case ever proceed to court”.

    Ceri Thomas, the editor of Panorama, defended the programme ahead of its going on air. “What we’ve found while we’ve been making this Panorama is a concern that all those big institutions – the police, press and politicians – are so determined to atone for the sins of the past that they’re in danger of inventing whole new categories of mistakes,” he said. “The motivation may be good, but the outcome can be awful.

    “What has emerged is a story which, arguably, says as much about how some of this country’s most important institutions are behaving now as it does about child abuse more than 30 years ago.”

    But Scotland Yard has insisted that the BBC’s handling of the investigation threatens to hamper its own criminal inquiries.

    A spokesman for the Met said: “We trust that the BBC has given due consideration to the impact of its reporting on ‘Nick’ and how it fulfils its responsibility to a witness making allegations of a sensitive and personal nature which were broadcast to millions of people.”

    A BBC spokesman said: “This is important and fair investigative journalism that rightly asks legitimate questions about the conduct of the police, journalists, campaigners, and politicians in handling historic allegations of child abuse.

    “We were aware the Met Police had concerns about this Panorama going ahead but as they recognise there is public interest in reporting on their investigations.

    “Whilst we take their statement seriously, the Met Police has not yet seen the programme and people should watch it before drawing conclusions.””

  9. I was recently providing an outdoor awareness campaign and I asked a member of the public his religion as part of our Diversity recording. He was clean shaven African and coyly said would my response change if he said he was muslim.

    I informed him it would not and that I was interested. He had an air of calm serenity. Well, islam is peaceful and not like ISIS he said, and I replied I found them to be directly quoting holy texts and directly applying them. I said with Socialist politicians openly lying and gutting their communities to submit to a collective, these islamists were refreshingly honest, but disgusting in their deeds.

    I said I could not take advice from a prophet of God who killed. (He alway mentioned God and not allah).

    He said Muhammad was the perfect man who had never killed anyone. I shared a hadith about the woman torn into shreds.

    His calm-peace never wavered.

    Not even when asked about the chronology and abrogation used in the koran.

    His parting bonhomie gift was that I should always live by God. (The Greatest of Deceivers. All will be well with you in all things if only you submit).

    I replied to him that I wished he find growth and discovery through every word of conscience. And only then did I see the mask slip. A different kingdom had been shared with him – that of a free man.

    • ‘We love death more than you love life’ is about not being afraid of you. They know how you work.

      Muslims have a Book of the Dead that they follow to the nth degree; and you submit to peer pressure. You love everybody else’s collective opinion except your own.

      Because if you really did love life you would not let politicians steal your children’s futures for their preferential ones.

      Those who really love life resist islam. Those who love life in return for peace, embrace islam in the only dhimmi way they know – to shuffle to accommodate, and remove crosses of sacrifice from their churches.

    • FOX NEWS – Russian jets ‘intercept’ US predator drones over Syria, officials say

      Russian fighter jets shadowed U.S. predator drones on at least three separate occasions high above Syria since the start of Russia’s air campaign last week, according to two U.S. officials briefed on this latest intelligence from the region.

      “The first time it happened, we thought the Russians got lucky. Then it happened two more times,” said one official.

      Both officials said that the incidents took place over ISIS-controlled Syria, including its de facto headquarters in Raqqa, as well as along the Turkish-Syrian border near Korbani. Another occurred in the northwest, near the highly contested city of Aleppo.

      The U.S. military’s MQ-1 Predator drone is not a stealth aircraft.

      “It is easy to see a predator on radar,” said one official.

      The Russians have not attempted to shoot down any of the U.S. drones, but instead have flown “intercept tracks,” a doctrinal term meaning the Russians flew close enough to make their presence felt, according to one official.

      One other official said, “the Russians flew very close, but did not impede the drone flight.”

      Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook, traveling with the defense secretary in Europe leading up to a NATO ministerial meeting in Brussels Thursday, said the Pentagon is open to more military-to-military talks with the Russians. No immediate date has been established to conduct the next round of talks, according to one defense official.

      This development comes as Russia has moved some of its Mi-24 gunships and transport helicopters from an air base along the Mediterranean to another air base outside Homs, roughly 100 miles away. Russian ground forces, hundreds of Russian marines — as well as four BM-30 Smerch rocket launchers capable of firing cluster munitions, mines as well as high explosive warheads — are now in position to strike, but there is no evidence they have done so according to multiple defense officials. Infantry fighting vehicles and more a conventional artillery battery has also been seen by the intelligence community.

      All these movements demonstrate the Russians are forming a “protective belt” around Latakia, the stronghold of Syrian President Bashar Assad, and are carrying out airstrikes against anti-Assad rebel forces, some backed by the CIA, to protect both regime and Russian interests, including a Russian naval base in Tartus established in the 70s.

      The Pentagon maintains the vast majority of strikes from its forward operating base at Bassel al-Assad airport in Latakia including some 30 fighter/bomber jets have been against Syrian opposition forces and not ISIS, and one official pushed back on Russian defense ministry claims on the number of strikes the Russians have launched.

      “The Russians carried out only one half or at best a quarter of the strikes they claim to have conducted,” said a senior military official.

      Over the past weekend, Turkey claims that Russia on two separate occasions violated its airspace. Despite Turkish pressure on NATO and top US government officials calling the action “unprofessional” and a “provocation” two senior US military officials downplayed the incident.

      “The Russians flew along the border and we still don’t know for sure what happened.”

      At least one of the alleged incidences occurred in Turkey’s Hatay Province.

      In 1939, land belonging to Syria and the Assad family in the northwest, along the Mediterranean bordering Latakia where the Russia has established an air base, was annexed by Turkey. Syria has never recognized the action and the two countries have been bitter enemies ever since.

    • REUTERS Iraq leans toward Russia in war on Islamic State

      Iraq may request Russian air strikes against Islamic State on its soil soon and wants Moscow to have a bigger role than the United States in the war against the militant group, the head of parliament’s defense and security committee said on Wednesday.

      “In the upcoming few days or weeks, I think Iraq will be forced to ask Russia to launch air strikes, and that depends on their success in Syria,” Hakim al-Zamili, a leading Shi’ite politician, told Reuters in an interview.

      The comments were the clearest signal yet that Baghdad intends to lean on Russia in the war on Islamic State after U.S.-led coalition airstrikes produced limited results.

      Russian military action in Iraq would deepen U.S. fears that it is losing more strategic ground to rivals in one of the world’s most critical regions.

      Russia is weighing in behind President Bashar al-Assad with air strikes in Syria while its ally Iran holds deep sway in Iraq, including military advisors who help direct the battle against Islamic State.

      Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has said he would welcome Russian air strikes on Islamic State militants in Iraq and powerful Iranian-backed Shi’ite militias hope for a partnership with Russia to counter U.S. influence.

      “We are seeking to see Russia have a bigger role in Iraq. … Yes, definitely a bigger role than the Americans,” Zamili said.

      Shi’ite militias, long mistrustful of the United States, see Russia’s intervention as an opportunity to turn the tables.

      “The Russian intervention came at the right time and right place and we think it will change all rules of the game not only in Syria but in Iraq also,” said Muen al-Kadhimi, an aide to Hadi al-Amiri, the most powerful Shi’ite militia leader.

      “The government has been relying heavily on an untrustworthy ally, which is the United States, and this fault should be fixed.”

      MESSAGE TO WASHINGTON

      Russia’s drive for more clout in the Middle East includes a new security and intelligence-sharing agreement with Iran, Iraq and Syria with a command center in Baghdad.

      “We believe that this center will develop in the near future to be a joint operation command to lead the war against Daesh in Iraq,” said Zamili, using a derogatory Arabic acronym for Islamic State, which is also known as ISIS or ISIL.

      Washington has been pressuring Abadi to rein in Shi’ite militias, angering forces seen as a bulwark against the ultra-hardline Sunni Islamic State, the biggest security threat to oil producer Iraq since the fall of Saddam Hussein since 2003.

      “The sort of support for us, or all other resistance groups for that matter, should be on the level of training, providing weapons and also serious air support,” said Jaafar Hussaini, spokesman of the Kata’ib Hezbollah Shi’ite force.

      Abadi was frustrated by the U.S.-led coalition’s performance against Islamic State, which has threatened to march on Baghdad and wants to redraw the map of the Middle East.

      Military sources said army commanders complained in a letter sent to Abadi in early September of inadequate U.S. support in the battle for Iraq’s biggest refinery near the town of Baiji, a focal point in the campaign to dislodge Islamic State.

      Abadi was incensed by tough accusations by U.S. officials that Iraqi government troops lacked the will to fight the militants, government sources said.

      Delayed delivery of U.S. arms was one of the factors that pushed Abadi to strike a security deal with Russia, the sources said.

      “We are still losing lives and losing billions of dollars in oil revenues by purchasing arms from United States, but what we really got from them was only promises and dozens of delayed arms deals,” said Zamili.

      “After a whole year, Daesh is still growing and thousands of fighters are still flowing to both Iraq and Syria and it is controlling more areas. That’s clear evidence the United States has no clear plan or a real strategy.”

      Baghdad-based analyst and former army general Jasim al-Bahadli said tensions with the United States were one of the reasons why Abadi turned to Moscow for help.

      “Abadi, it seems, succeeded in sending a clear message to the American administration, which repeatedly blamed Abadi’s forces for recent setbacks, that there is another alternative for Iraq to resort to in the fight against Daesh if you are not willing to show real support,” he said.

      “The United States has been worried by the growing influence of Iran in Iraq and worries should be doubled after the Russians took the lead in Iraq and Syria.”

      Despite his frustrations with Washington, Abadi risks becoming isolated by a new dynamic dominated by Russia.

      He has depended heavily on U.S. support and is at odds with the militias and their Iranian backers.

      But with Islamic State showing no signs of weakening, the priority will be finding a formula for stability and key players are embracing Russia.

      “There’s a need to create a new coalition and force that is actually effective on the ground and performs the actual goal of fighting Daesh,” said Mohammed Naji, another aide to Amiri.

      “There is a serious discussion and inquiry into requesting the Russian air forces to conduct air strikes against Daesh positions in Iraq.”

      REUTERS -How Iranian general plotted out Syrian assault in Moscow

      At a meeting in Moscow in July, a top Iranian general unfurled a map of Syria to explain to his Russian hosts how a series of defeats for President Bashar al-Assad could be turned into victory – with Russia’s help.

      Major General Qassem Soleimani’s visit to Moscow was the first step in planning for a Russian military intervention that has reshaped the Syrian war and forged a new Iranian-Russian alliance in support of Assad.

      As Russian warplanes bomb rebels from above, the arrival of Iranian special forces for ground operations underscores several months of planning between Assad’s two most important allies, driven by panic at rapid insurgent gains.

      Soleimani is the commander of the Quds Force, the elite extra-territorial special forces arm of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, and reports directly to Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.[…]

      • Iran Plotted w Russia for Months on Military Intervention in Syria

        Iran and Russia have been plotting for months on military intervention in Syria to bolster President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, according to senior regional officials.

        A top Iranian general, Major General Qassem Soleimani, met w Russian leaders in Moscow in July to discuss how Iran and Russia could together help provide Assad’s regime w military aid as the civil war wages in Syria.

        Reuters reported:

        Soleimani is the commander of the Quds Force, the elite extra-territorial special forces arm of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, and reports directly to Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Senior regional sources say he has already been overseeing ground operations against insurgents in Syria and is now at the heart of planning for the new Russian- and Iranian-backed offensive.

        During his visit to Moscow, Soleimani mapped out the Syrian rebel advances ag Assad in the region, highlighting the need for an Iranian-Russian alliance rallying in support of Assad.

        “Soleimani put the map of Syria on the table,” a senior regional official said. “The Russians were very alarmed, and felt matters were in steep decline and that there were real dangers to the regime. The Iranians assured them there is still the possibility to reclaim the initiative. At that time, Soleimani played a role in assuring them that we haven’t lost all the cards.”

        Soleimani was allegedly directed by Khamenei to spearhead the Iranian side of the military intervention and travel to Moscow and Syria to establish the details.

        Russia and Iran began plotting military action in Syria months before the July meeting, according to three senior regional officials.

        Russian warplanes started conducting airstrikes in Syria last week, targeting areas that aren’t controlled by the Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIL or ISIS) despite assurances from Moscow that the increased military activity is meant to combat the terrorist group. US officials believe that Russia is specifically targeting CIA-backed Syrian rebels in a direct challenge to the Obama administration Syria policy.

        Meanwhile, Iranian special forces are on the ground Syria. According to sources, hundreds of Iranian troops have traveled to Syria in recent weeks to conduct ground operations. One of the senior regional officials said that 3,000 Iranian-backed Hezbollah fighters have also mobilized in the region, and Syrian troops are also ready for battle.

        • Both nations wanted to make the first strike a very nasty one, now they will increase the force used and increase the number of strikes. the idea is to create a perfect storm of violence that will destroy the enemies will to resist. Something we achieved but then the Dems threw it away by withdrawing our troops giving ISIS, Russia and Iran a chance to move in and take over the Middle East.

          • For many years I have been in touch with a Syrian dissident who was driven from his country; get the hell out or go to prison, and now works at the Brookings Institute.
            When the uprising in Syria started it was peaceful. I think people like my friend, playing on the coat tails of the Arab Spring thought they could bring a Western gov’t to Syria. I warned him many times that the Islam-crazies would take over the movement and… that he was attempting to do this under the wrong US administration. (and let’s not even talk about John McCain… what an asshole)
            He denied what I said and assured me that moderates” would win out.
            Well, here we are.
            Quite frankly, I think it inevitable that Russian and Iranian forces control this region. We have an American (and Canadian and European) administration that can’t get out of their own way.
            This shadow dance that the US with their “60 member coalition” has conducted is a farce, and everybody knows it.
            What I don’t understand is why? Why has the Obama gov’t allowed the situation in Iraq and Syria to deteriorate to the extent that it has? Do they wish harm on the civilians of this region?
            Saudi Arabia, having been given billions of dollars in military training and aid proves itself incapable of suppressing a small, horribly poor and illiterate country like Yemen which is next door! What an absurd ally. Sure, they can throw money at something but their citizens are incapable of organizing a coherent fighting force. My son was actually in flight school with some Saudis in Pensacola and THEY SUCKED! Google “Why Arabs Lose Wars.”
            I say let Russia bleed for a bit; send off their missiles, and fuel their jets and put boots on the ground. It is now a forgone conclusion that Iran and its satellites of Iraq and Syria will dominate this region.
            My only hope is that we can stop Islamic integration into North America and rely on the energy resources we have right here at home.

    • REUTERS – Russian warplanes in Syria destroy U.S.-trained rebels’ weapons depots: commander

      Russian air strikes have destroyed the main weapons depots of a U.S.-trained rebel group in Syria, their commander said on Wednesday, in an expansion of Russian attacks on insurgents backed by foreign enemies of President Bashar al-Assad.

      The Liwa Suqour al-Jabal, whose fighters have attended military training organized by the Central Intelligence Agency in Saudi Arabia and Qatar, was also hit last week by Russian raids as Moscow began its air campaign in support of Damascus.

      New strikes targeted the group’s main weapons depots in western Aleppo province and completely destroyed them late on Tuesday, its commander Hassan Haj Ali told Reuters on Wednesday via an Internet messaging service.

      Haj Ali said he believed the Russians were targeting his group because it was one of the bigger and stronger factions fighting under the banner of the Free Syrian Army with support from “Arab and foreign countries”.

      “These were considered the principal depots of the Liwa,” he told Reuters.

      Liwa Suqour al-Jabal operates areas of western and northern Syria where many of Russia’s air strikes have been focused and where the Islamic State group – the stated target of the Russian air raids – has no significant presence.

      It is one of a number of Syrian rebel groups deemed moderate by the United States which have received training as part of an ostensibly covert CIA program. That program is separate to one set up by the Pentagon to train and equip Syrian insurgents to fight Islamic State.

      The group has been supplied with guided anti-tank missiles by states that oppose Assad. These missiles have had a significant impact on the battlefield.

      Liwa Suqour al-Jabal has also been battling attempts by Islamic State to advance in areas north of Aleppo near the Turkish border. Haj Ali said Islamic State had also attacked the group on Tuesday, setting off a car bomb at one of its bases.

      Liwa Suqour al-Jabal was targeted last week in Russian strikes.

  10. UK – The Times – Secret EU plan to throw out thousands of migrants

    Hundreds of thousands of failed asylum seekers will be deported from Europe within weeks under secret plans leaked to The Times.

    Brussels will threaten to withdraw aid, trade deals and visa arrangements if countries such as Niger and Eritrea refuse to take back their economic migrants. The proposals also envisage EU states detaining thousands of migrants to prevent them from absconding to avoid deportation.

    More than 400,000 people who entered the EU in the first half of this year are expected to have their asylum claim rejected

    Gone are Angela Merkel’s grand moral gestures of earlier this summer — the German chancellor is now facing an influx of up to 1.5 million migrants this year. The idealism is in short supply now. This winter, the EU is going to get tough.

    Borders with Turkey will be sealed, with the help of President Erdogan. The EU is also going to start enforcing rules to deport hundreds of thousands of failed asylum seekers to their home countries or Turkey.

    The European Commission is ready to take Germany to EU courts if it fails to expel failed asylum seekers, a number that could be as high as half a million, based on current rejection rates. Many African countries will be told that trade deals will be off unless they take back their nationals who have failed to be accepted as asylum seekers.

    People without identity papers or passports will be issued laissez-passer documents allowing a one-way trip back home or to a camp in Turkey. If they protest, they will be forced on to planes with the help of a special “returns” unit.

    Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, yesterday pronounced Mrs Merkel’s Willkommen politik, or welcome policy, as effectively dead. He warned that “millions of potential refugees and migrants are dreaming about Europe”, not only from Syria but also from Africa, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq.

  12. TURKEY – 6 linked to ISIL arrested on charges of minting coins in Gaziantep province

    Six individuals linked to the terrorist Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) have been arrested on charges of illegally minting coins in the southeastern province of Gaziantep, a written statement from the Gaziantep Governor’s Office said on Wednesday.

    ISIL had previously announced it was planning to create its own currency in coins.

    In an operation recently undertaken by the Gaziantep Police Department’s counterterrorism unit, minted coins, coining blocks and other materials that make possible the minting of coins were confiscated. Six suspects were detained in the operation and were later sent to prison.

    Issuing a written statement on the raid and arrests, the Gaziantep Governor’s Office said they received a tipoff about members of the terrorist ISIL group establishing a mint to coin its own currency. The police seized 12 coining blocks and 56 coins in four different sizes, along with other materials required to mint coins in the operation.

    In a video published on social media months ago, an ISIL terrorist was heard saying that the organization would mint its own coins in order to avoid a “global economic system that is based on satanic usury.”

    The terrorist group’s primary source of income is the oil that it is currently controlling and selling.

  13. REUTERS Iran’s supreme leader bans negotiations with the United States

    Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday banned any further negotiations between Iran and the United States, putting the brakes on moderates hoping to end Iran’s isolation after reaching a nuclear deal with world powers in July.

    Khamenei, the highest authority in the Islamic Republic, already said last month there would be no more talks with the United States after the nuclear deal, but has not previously declared an outright ban.

    His statements directly contradict those of moderate Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who says his government is ready to hold talks with the United States on how to resolve the conflict in Syria, where the two countries back opposing sides.

    “Negotiations with the United States open gates to their economic, cultural, political and security influence. Even during the nuclear negotiations they tried to harm our national interests.,” Khamenei was quoted as saying on his website.

    “Our negotiators were vigilant but the Americans took advantage of a few chances,” he said.

    Although he supported the last 18 months of negotiations, Khamenei has not publicly endorsed the nuclear agreement with the United States, Germany, France, Britain, China and Russia that settled a standoff of more than a decade.
