1. More video of the building that had an explosion in Belgium
2. Muslims are first in armed jihad
Russia on Sunday warned Turkey to stop staging what it called provocations against its forces in or near Syria after one of its warships fired warning shots at a Turkish vessel in the Aegean to avoid a collision.
The Russian Defence Ministry said one of its warships, the destroyer Smetlivy, had been forced to fire the warning shots on Sunday morning and that it had summoned the Turkish military attache over the incident.
“The Turkish military diplomat was given a tough explanation about the potentially disastrous consequences from Ankara’s reckless actions towards Russia’s military contingent fighting against international terrorism in Syria,” the Defence Ministry said in a statement.
(Yet Obama refers to the vetting process of the tens of thousands of muslims being brought into the US now as amazing)
Tashfeen Malik, who helped her husband kill 14 people in the San Bernardino massacre, was allowed to enter the United States because officials never checked her social-media posts — which made no secret of her hateful goal of participating in violent jihad, it was reported Saturday.
Law-enforcement officials finally discovered the postings — which date back years — only recently as part of their investigation of the slaughter, The New York Times reported.
Immigration officials doing background checks of people who want to settle in the United States have not been routinely reviewing social media, the report added.
6. English village on the front line of the refugee crisis
The White House ceremony included a speech by “Rabbi” Susan Talve of Central Reform Congregation in St. Louis, Missouri, which included references to race riots in Ferguson and gun control. Talve is a member of T’ruah, a group which is now promoting “soft BDS” programs, according to the American Thinker.
“I stand here with my fierce family of clergy and Black Lives Matter activists who took to the streets of Ferguson,” she reportedly said at the ceremony. “I stand here to light these lights to say no to the darkness of Islamophobia and homophobia and transphobia… Inshallah, inshallah.”

10. ISIS “agressively” recruiting from Minnesota
The FBI have arrested a man they said was the ringleader of an Islamic State recruitment cell in Minnesota.
Abdirizak Mohamed Warsame, 20, is one of 10 men of Somali origin from Minnesota who have allegedly been plotting to join the Islamic State. Nine were arrested while one made it to Syria. The latter has been there since May 2014 and is believed to be helping recruitment efforts aimed at Americans.
Warsame was allegedly the leader, or emir, of the group.
Thank you M., PP., CB Sashenka, and many people.
I have not yet seen the Spencer video but I am confident it is worth seeing and plan to watch it very soon. Also in tonight’s episode of Homeland there is a scene that is at least the equal of the famous bunker scene in episode 1 of this season. The bathroom scene. I had to stop it half way through as I couldn’t believe there could be that much condensed truth in one scene of a popular TV show. I plan to watch the rest of that soon as well. I look forward to the comments (no plot spoilers please) or anyone who has seen it.
More to come. I have translators on important stories from Finland and Greece that should be published Monday at some point.
Thank you all again for being part of this community.
