Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.
During a recent televised interview with Grand Ayatollah Ahmad al-Baghdadi, the leading Shia cleric of Iraq made clear why Islam and the rest of the world can never peacefully coexist.
First he spent some time discussing “defensive jihad,” saying that all capable Muslims are obligated to fight for the “liberation” of “occupied” territory, for instance, Israel (see here for a list of European countries also deemed “occupied” in the eyes of Islam).
He then explained “offensive jihad,” Islam’s primary bloodline, which forged what we now call the “Muslim world” over the centuries.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) is calling on Secretary of State John Kerry to resign over recent comments by senior Obama administration officials accusing Israel of committing “terrorism” amid a spate of violent attacks by Palestinians against Jews.
Palestinian terrorists have murdered at least eight Israelis and wounded dozens more over the last few weeks, with Palestinian leaders calling on citizens to commit more violence.
However, the State Department has attempted to blame Israel for fostering these attacks. Kerry blamed so-called Israeli “settlement” growth for the violence, while State Department spokesman John Kirby accused Israel of committing “terrorism.”
(This gives a pretty decent idea of what Obama really thinks and wants to accomplish)
CIA and Pentagon bosses are investigating after the publication of ‘The Drone Papers’ which includes Top Secret slides on how President Obama authorizes a kill.
The disclosure raises the prospect of a second Snowden-like figure, especially as the leak was published by the same journalists who worked with him before.
But unlike Snowden the single, anonymous source has already spoken out and expresses intense moral outrage over the drone strikes on theintercept.com.
During one five-month stretch of the operation, a staggering 90 per cent of those killed were not the intended target.
Despite this all the deaths were labelled EKIA, or ‘enemy killed in action’.
The source told The Intercept that anyone caught near the strike was ‘guilty by association’ and that there was ‘no guarantee that those persons deserved their fate’.
The papers also reveal that President Obama is given ‘baseball cards’ which have a suspect’s portrait and the key allegations against them on them to help him make up his mind.
The President takes on average 58 days to sign off on a kill and from there the US military has 60 days to carry it out.
(ANSAmed) – GAZA, OCTOBER 15 – Hamas invoked a ‘Day of rage’ in the West Bank and East Jerusalem at the end of Friday prayer, Hamas media in Gaza reported.

Hamas also turned to other Palestinian forces to join in the fight.
Restrictions on gun permits are being eased, especially for former security officials, as a measure meant to help counter the wave of terror attacks, Israeli officials said.
“In light of the security situation, I have decided to make it easier to obtain a gun permit,” Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said Tuesday.
“In recent weeks, many citizens helped the Israel Police neutralize terrorists carrying out attacks. Citizens trained in the use of firearms are a force multiplier in the struggle against terror,” he added.
6. A few years ago, an Israeli TV station sent a crew to Europe to document the fall of the continent to Islamic forces. An Arab Jew managed to mix in with the islamic community in a number of countries and show how Europe was changing because of it. We titled it in English and posted it bad then, but Green Infidel has now translated the first part into Polish. Anyone knowing people in the Polish community, please send them the ink, especially if they are in Poland as they have elections coming up very soon and really need to see this.

NAIROBI, Kenya (Morning Star News) – Islamists upset by a Christian-Muslim debate are suspected in the killing of a long-time evangelist in eastern Uganda who led many Muslims to Christ, sources said.
The mutilated body of Samson Nfunyeku was found close to his home in Kalampete village, Kibuku District early on Sept. 23, after the latest in a series of organized debates with Islamic scholars at Tirinyi Trading Center ended prematurely due to flaring tempers the previous night. He was 59.
At a previous debate, also sponsored by Nfunyeku’s Church of Uganda and other churches, Muslim leaders had threatened him and warned him to hold no more debates, a source said.
“Four months ago Samson and others had a very hot debate at Tirinyi Trading Center with the Muslim scholars that ended on a bad note, and they gave warning that such debates were not good for the Muslims,” said one of the participants, a former sheikh (Islamic teacher) who became a Christian.
