  1. Russia CRUSHES hundreds of ISIS targets in just THREE DAYS and unleashes 2,000 bombs (express, Dec 9, 2015)

    “RUSSIA has crushed more than 600 Islamic State targets in just three days in the latest series of bombardments against the evil terror group.

    In an official video, Russian Tu-22 long-bombers can be seen slamming massive bombs into buildings occupied by the depraved death cult – also known as Daesh.

    Vladimir Putin’s bombers conducted hundreds of sorties in war-ravaged Syria during the mission, Moscow’s defence ministry confirmed.

    Kremlin defence minister Sergei Shoigu said: “We carried out more than 300 combat missions in Syria in the past three days, hitting over 600 various targets.”

    It comes as Moscow launched a staggering aerial assault involving 2,000 bombs against the abhorrent terror group, destroying a series of extremist infrastructure targets as it steps up its campaign against ISIS…”

  2. Top lawyers probing 200 German Syria fighters (thelocal, Dec 9, 2015)

    “Germany’s chief prosecutor is investigating around 200 people who have travelled to Syria to fight in the civil war there, the Justice Minister confirmed on Wednesday.

    “The chief prosecutor currently has 135 cases open with around 200 suspects in connection with the civil war in Syria,” Justice Minister Heiko Maas told Bild.

    “Across the country, there are roughly twice as many cases open.

    “That shows: in Germany we have an especially tough terrorism law, which we will apply harshly. There is no tolerance for radical terrorists,” Maas said.

    Experts warned in the wake of the Paris attacks that Germany would also be targeted by terrorists linked to Isis, the Islamic fundamentalist group occupying large swathes of Iraq and Syria…”

  3. Socialists continue to create a hostile and intollerant society.

    A Muslim school headmistress receives a letter in which her religion disrespected for making young school children wear tents to cover their sexyful bodies.

    There are no threats whatsoever to property or life, just an imaginary Judgement for believing the wrong things.

    A court however, uses legislation to protect this Preferential Groups’ feelings.

    A reasonable person would throw the letter away or warn them of harassment if any more are received..

    But… In Islam, if you are offered Koranic scripture and you do not ‘revert,’ you are legitimately killed. This is the real and present danger, not the virtual Christian one.

    But as Muslims are Terminators with a list of instructions to follow, Socialists are ‘health and well-being scanners’ to secure their feeding being overlooked. Their Ideologies serving the other’s for a new creation.

  4. California shooters spoke of jihad as early as late 2013 -FBI director

    WASHINGTON, Dec 9 (Reuters) – The couple who killed 14 people in San Bernardino last week were radicalized before they met online and spoke of jihad and martyrdom to each other as early as late 2013, FBI director James Comey said on Wednesday.

    “They were actually radicalized before they started … dating each other online, and as early as the end of 2013 they were talking to each other about jihad and martyrdom before they became engaged,” Comey said at a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    The FBI believes the couple were inspired by foreign terrorist organizations, and is working to understand the nature of their association and the SOURCE OF THEIR INSPIRATION , he added.

  5. S Y R I A : Muslim terrorists and murderers evacuated from Homs under UN supervision

    Coachloads of Syrian anti-government forces were evacuated under the supervision of the UN from Homs, in a ceasefire deal reached with the government, Wednesday. The militants were besieged in the Homs’ district of al-Wair for almost three years.

    • Greek police forces started a process of evicting those it deems to be ‘economic migrants’ and not refugees, from the Greek border at Idomeni, Wednesday morning. The authorities state the actions were undertaken in order to enable the functionality of the railroad tracks connecting Greece to Macedonia, which were reportedly blocked for weeks by those seeking entry to Europe.

  6. French PM says far right wants return to religious wars

    French Prime Minister Manuel Valls accuses the far-right National Front of calling into question France’s secular history and wanting to go back to the religious wars before 1905.

    • RT – FRANCE ‘Our enemies live in our own country’ – Mayor of refugee-flooded town

      The political breakthrough for France’s far-right National Front in Sunday’s regional elections has been widely interpreted as a ‘shock’.

      But a closer look suggests some of the results were actually fairly predictable.

  7. NATIONAL REVIEW – Dispelling the ‘Few Extremists’ Myth – the Muslim World Is Overcome with Hate

    t is simply false to declare that jihadists represent the “tiny few extremists” who sully the reputation of an otherwise peace-loving and tolerant Muslim faith. In reality, the truth is far more troubling — that jihadists represent the natural and inevitable outgrowth of a faith that is given over to hate on a massive scale, with hundreds of millions of believers holding views that Americans would rightly find revolting. Not all Muslims are hateful, of course, but so many are that it’s not remotely surprising that the world is wracked by wave after wave of jihadist violence. To understand the Muslim edifice of hate, imagine it as a pyramid — with broadly-shared bigotry at the bottom, followed by stair steps of escalating radicalism — culminating in jihadist armies that in some instances represent a greater share of their respective populations than does the active-duty military in the United States.

    The base of the pyramid, the most broadly held hatred in the Islamic world, is anti-Semitism, with staggering numbers of Muslims expressing anti-Jewish views. In 2014, the Anti-Defamation League released the results of polling 53,100 people in 102 countries for evidence of anti-Semitic attitudes and beliefs. The numbers from the majority-Muslim world are difficult to believe for those steeped in politically correct rhetoric about Islam. A full 74 percent of North African and Middle Eastern residents registered anti-Semitic beliefs, including 92 percent of Iraqis, a whopping 69 percent of relatively secular Turks, and 74 percent of Saudis.[…]

  9. Afghanistan’s Ghani urges regional help to defeat terrorism (BBC, Dec 9, 2015)

    “Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has blamed “regional and international terror groups” for the violence in his country.

    Mr Ghani told the Heart of Asia meeting in Islamabad that regional co-operation was needed to end terrorism.

    His comments are being seen in reference to Kabul’s long-held view that Pakistan supports the Taliban in Afghanistan, a charge Islamabad denies.

    Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj promised her country’s help to Kabul.

    She will also hold rare bilateral talks with Pakistani officials on Wednesday.

    The Heart of Asia gathering brings together Asian and other countries to discuss the future of Afghanistan and its neighbours.

    Security co-operation between Afghanistan and Pakistan is seen as crucial in countering a growing threat from the Taliban and other militants in the region.

    On Wednesday, Mr Ghani blamed Pakistan-based militant groups for the escalating violence in Afghanistan…”

  10. Three jailed over France ‘train attack bluff’ (BBC, Dec 9, 2015)

    “Three men in France have been jailed for faking a terror threat on a train to steal passengers’ phones – only five days after the Paris attacks.

    The group was travelling between Beziers and Perpignan in the southern Pyrenees region when they commandeered the train’s intercom system.

    They then played a Muslim call to prayer and told passengers to hand over their phones or face an attack.

    They were found guilty of extortion and sentenced to up to 30 months in prison.

    One of their lawyers said it was “a joke in very bad taste by foolish youths”.

    None of those sentenced, aged between 19 and 23 and from Beziers, was named by the court in Perpignan.

    “It wasn’t serious,” the main defendant told the court. “We were just joking around. I have always condemned Islamic State and everything that happened in Paris.”

    One of the men, who is 21 years old and had converted to Islam, was also found guilty of supporting terrorism after police found pictures of him posing with an assault rifle and a jihadist banner on his phone.”

  11. Anti-refugee attacks rise four-fold in Germany (DW, Dec 9, 2015)

    “A four-fold rise in attacks on refugee hostels has been recorded this year by Germany’s Federal Criminal Office. It says far-right motives were behind most crimes, which Justice Minister Heiko Maas says are inexcusable.

    Maas reacted to the statistical summary presented Wednesday by the BKA investigative police bureau in Wiesbaden by saying it was a shameful trend for which the perpetrators had “no excuses” and “no justifications.”

    This year’s four-fold increase – compared to last year – amounted to 817 attacks on buildings sheltering asylum seekers, including arson, property damage, racist propaganda and incitement.

    Police attributed at least 733 of the incidents to persons with far-right extremist motivations.

    Maas said every effort should be made to identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice…”

  12. Hate incidents against American Muslims unabated; political rhetoric not helping (CNN, Dec 9, 2015)

    “American Muslims appear to be facing a perfect storm of hate.

    Ever since the Paris attacks, carried out by extremists hiding behind religion, xenophobic bile has poured out against peaceful, law-abiding Americans who practice Islam.

    Then came San Bernardino, and after it anti-Muslim rhetoric from the Trump campaign, and a steady stream of hateful incidents came rolling in.

    A pig’s head thrown at a mosque, and bodega owners assaulted by attackers decrying their religion: Those were just a couple of about half a dozen reported Tuesday.

    “It’s just pretty regular now that we’re getting reports of incidents,” said Ibrahim Hooper from the Council on American-Islamic Relations…”

  13. President Obama Calls for End to ‘Bigotry in All Its Forms’ (abcnews, Dec 9, 2015)

    “In the wake of the controversy ignited by Donald Trump’s proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the U.S., President Obama visited Capitol Hill today to decry “bigotry in all its forms.”

    Speaking at an event commemorating the 150th anniversary of the 13th Amendment, Obama never directly referred to Trump.

    Instead, he chronicled the struggle against slavery and fight for civil rights to the “challenges” pushing against equality today….”

  14. Swiss government moves to right as anti-immigrant party gains extra cabinet post (DW, Dec 9, 2015)

    “Switzerland’s government has lurched to the right with the Swiss People’s Party (SVP) picking up a second seat in the seven-member cabinet. The eurosceptic party picked up 30 percent of the vote in October elections.

    The Swiss parliament elected the Swiss People’s Party’s (SVP) Guy Parmelin to the cabinet on Wednesday, making him the second member of the eurosceptic party to gain a seat on the seven-member Federal Council alongside Defense Minister Ueli Maurer.

    Switzerland’s parliament has traditionally elected council members from across the political spectrum to ensure stability.

    The left of center Social Democrats maintained two seats, as did the pro-business Liberal Democrats, while the centrist Christian Democrats have one seat. Those positions will be taken by incumbents.

    The SVP rode to victory on an anti-immigration, anti-EU platform that secured the party a record 65 seats in the 200-seat lower house in October elections.

    The SVP has vowed to protect Switzerland from immigrants from the Middle East and Africa coming to Switzerland.

    The party would like to limit closer ties with the EU as well as curb the number of workers from the 28-nation bloc by renegotiating a quota treaty with Brussels. Nearly a quarter of the Alpine nation’s 8.2 million population consists of foreigners…:”

  15. Mark Zuckerberg writes Facebook post ‘to add my voice in support of Muslims in our community’; says company ‘will fight to protect your rights and create a peaceful and safe environment for you’


    I want to add my voice in support of Muslims in our community and around the world.

    After the Paris attacks and hate this week, I can only imagine the fear Muslims feel that they will be persecuted for the actions of others.

    As a Jew, my parents taught me that we must stand up against attacks on all communities. Even if an attack isn’t against you today, in time attacks on freedom for anyone will hurt everyone

    If you’re Muslim in this community, as the leader of Facebook I want you to know that you are always welcome here and that we will fight to protect your rights and create a peaceful and safe environment for you.

    Having a child has given us so much hope, but the hate of some can make it easy to succumb to cynicism. We must not lose hope. As long as we stand together and see the good in each other, we can build a better world for all people

  16. Man arrested in Kabul on charges of kidnapping and raping scores of girls (khaama, Dec 9, 2015)

    “Police in Kabul arrested a man on charges of blackmailing, kidnapping and raping of scores of girls in capital Kabul, officials said Tuesday.

    The suspected has been identified as Ashraf who was on the Most Wanted List of the Afghan police during the past several months.

    Head of the Criminal Investigation Department, Gen. Zahir Zahir, told reporters Ashraf was arrested by police after kidnapping a girl by repeatedly issuing threats to her.

    Gen. Zahir also added that police seized at least 8 mobile phones from Ashraf where numerous pictures and films of the victims were discovered.

    Owning a car selling shop in the city, Ashraf was also arrested in connection to the kidnapping of a girl in Kabul but was later released due to the lack of evidence.

  17. President Ghani hails India for supporting the Afghan Air Force (khaama, Dec 9, 2015)

    “President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani hailed India for supporting the Afghan national security forces, specifically the Afghan Air Force.

    The Presidential Palace said President Ghani met with the External Affairs Minister of India on the sideline of the Heart of Asia conference in Islamabad today.

    No further details were given regarding India’s support to the Afghan national security forces, specifically the Afghan Air Force.

    However, his remarks follow almost a month after reports emerged regarding India’s decision to supply four Mi-25 gunship helicopters to Afghanistan.

    According to the reports, the gunship helicopters are expected to kick-off operations with the Afghan Air Force earlier next year…”

  18. Afghan intelligence chief slams Pakistan, criticizes Ghani in a rare statement (khaama, Dec 9, 2015)

    “The Afghan Intelligence – National Directorate of Security (NDS) Chief Rahmatullah Nabil issued an unusual statement slamming Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for his remarks delivered during the Heart of Asia summit where he said the enemy of Afghanistan is Pakistan’s enemy.

    The message was posted on official Facebook page of Mr. Nabil earlier tonight and shortly after the leaders of the two countries agreed to revive the stalled Afghan peace talks.

    Nabil said the innocent Afghan civilians were martyred and beheaded in Kandahar airfield, Khanshin district of Helmand, Takhar and Badakhshan at the same Nawaz Sharif was delivering his speech, once calling the enemy of Afghanistan as Pakistan’s enemy.

    In parts of his message, Nabil was apparently criticizing President Ghani for his remarks in Islamabad today, saying “At least 1,000 litres blood of our innocent people spilled which was similar to the red carpet where we did a cat walk. But the one who was present with us in the gathering and made an announcement from Quetta city of Pakistan under the name of Taliban, using the ISI computer to claim the glory. And we became so much apprehended and excited with 21 artillery gun salute that we agreed regarding the execution of 40 assaults/operations against the enemies of Pakistan and promised to soon launch a large operation against Mullah Fazlullah in a bid to keep our 60-year-old friend glad.”

    However, Nabil said Mullah Fazlullah has been residing in Pakistan and ISI guesthouses during the past several months and years, insisting that Mullah Fazlullah is part of ISI projects.

    Nabil also added that Sirajuddin Haqqani (Khalifa Sahib) was busy in a circumcision ceremony of his newborn baby from his third wife as Mulalh Akhtar Mansoor was busy plotting further attacks to kill more people in Afghanistan from By Pass area of Quetta city where he was provided security by ISI and in the presence of Colonel Rana who is also famous as Rabani.

    Concluding his statement with the message ‘Thanks God I was not there’, Nabil has raised a question in Pashto, saying ‘What happened to our 5000-year-old history? That kneeled in front of a 60-year-old history’.”

  19. BREITBART – Future Doctors And Engineers? 65 Per Cent Of Syrian Refugees Can’t Even Read Or Write, Claims Academic

    New statistics released by a senior German academic confirm previous forecasts suggesting the majority of so-called Syrian refugees coming to Europe are functionally illiterate and have no hope of joining the job market.

    That almost two thirds of Syrian refugees are illiterate is a major stumbling block to integration in their new homes in Europe, and the majority will never enter the labour market, according to the “harsh” claims of professor Ludger Wößmann of the University of Munich.

    Speaking in an interview with Zeit magazine, the professor admits there are no definite statistics on literacy of migrants arriving yet, but combining knowledge of migrants already arrived and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development surveys of the nations where refugees come from paints a bleak picture.

    In a blow to German manual workers, the professor also suggested the only hope to get many migrants working and off welfare programmes is to suspend the minimum wage for them. He batted off the suggestion doing so would be harmful to the “dignity” of migrants, as leaving them unemployed would be worse. He made no mention of the dignity of native workers undercut by imported labour.

    Responding to the idea that education was the key to successful integration of refugees, as postulated by Federal Education Minister Johanna Wanka, professor Wößmann said the fundamental lack of basic skills made bringing migrants up to speed quickly near impossible. Even at a young age, a “Syrian eighth grader in middle school is five years behind their peers at German schools”.

    When challenged by Zeit that his comments were “harsh” on migrants, professor Wößmann stated it was not his comments that were the problem, but rather the “hard numbers” and that Germans had to be realistic about the problem facing them. He said:

    “We have to prepare ourselves for the fact that the majority of young refugees will fail a three-year full time training course with a high proportion of theoretic content. According to the Chamber of Commerce of Munich and Upper Bavaria, 70 per cent of trainees from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq who started lessons more than two years ago have already dropped out”.

    The professor’s comments come just weeks after leaked internal figures from the German Federal Employment Agency sounded alarm bells over the educational attainment of migrants coming to Germany, and the enormous predicted growth in the welfare bill.

    As reported by Breitbart London, the federal government estimated some 80 per cent of migrants had no qualifications whatsoever, and only eight per cent had academic qualifications.
