Iranian hackers reportedly breached the control system of a small dam just outside New York City in 2013. The incident sparked concerns about cyber security vulnerabilities throughout the federal government, all the way to the White House.
Via the Wall Street Journal:
The breach came amid attacks by hackers linked to Iran’s government against the websites of U.S. banks, and just a few years after American spies had damaged an Iranian nuclear facility with a sophisticated computer worm called Stuxnet. In October 2012, then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta called out Iran’s hacking, prompting fears of cyberwar.

A KwaZulu-Natal family has opened its 20-hectare farm to 143 foreign nationals, including children, who were displaced during the recent xenophobic attacks. Watch.WATCH
The manifesto for the micro-aggressives has been unleashed on an unknowing “safe-space”-seeking, politically-corrected, American public. Students at no lesser liberalist college than Oberlin, Ohio, have released 14 pages of full social-justice-warrior-tard warning that they are “not polite requests, but concrete and unmalleable demands.”
As DailyCaller.com reports, the list, which bubbled up online over the past three days, is no less than 14 pages in length, and includes a staggering 50 demands, many of which divide into several sub-demands. Not only are the demands numerous, but they are quite severe and are paired with stern rhetoric. The document opens as follows:
(The article goes on to describe their benevolence, generosity and outright saintly behaviour to these refugees. But then a funny thing happened:)

THE good Samaritans who took onto their farm over 100 refugees displaced by this year’s xenophobic violence, now claim they have been threatened with murder by the same people they had set out to help.
Besides property being destroyed, the family who took in the immigrants have also been accused of not helping them to be relocated back home or to another country, driving a chasm between them.
Owners of Hope Farm in Cato Ridge, Andrew and Rae Wartnaby, were yesterday forced to evacuate their 10 children from their farm house in fear that they would be attacked or used as “bargaining tools”.
This, after a group of the foreign nationals they are housing on their farm attacked their home in the early hours of yesterday morning and threatened to kill Andrew.
The Wartnabys took in about 139 foreign nationals from countries such as Burundi and the Congo, including children, after they were arrested for squatting at the Chatsworth Sport Ground where they had been living during the height of the xenophobic violence in the province.
(Funny that the EU and US would push for gun control at the exact same time they push for total national deconstruction of the nation state and European/Western culture and massive massive unprecedented immigration from hostile and alien cultures)
German gun club lobbyists were invited to the German Interior Ministry (BMI) last week to discuss something that has been bothering them for a while – the European Commission’s proposed plans to tighten Europe’s gun laws, which were suddenly revived from legislative stagnation in the wake of the “Islamic State” attacks in Paris in November.
By all accounts, the visit was a success. “The proposal contains things that the BMI said would be difficult for them, and where changes would be called for,” said Joachim Streitberger, head of Germany’s association of shooting ranges (BVS), after he emerged from the meeting. “After this conversation I do not expect the draft to come into force in the present form.”
5. PEGIDA demo in Dresden today and counter demo
Dutch anti-Islam campaigner Geert Wilders on Monday refused to bow to pressure from other MPs to distance himself from the recent spell of anti-refugee violence. ‘Politicians and the press can drop dead,’ Wilders said on Twitter. ‘Distance yourself from your cowardice and betrayal of the Netherlands to Islam. Suckers.’ Wilders has previously issued statements rejecting the violence at protests about plans to locate refugee centres in several Dutch towns. However, he has not made any comment in the wake of the Geldermalsen riots last Wednesday in which a mob of between 70 and 80 people attempted to storm the town hall, and hurled bricks and fireworks at the building.
(Actually, if a democratic state utterly ignores the people of that state and enacts and enforces policies which are to the detriment of the state and of its law abiding citizens against their express wishes, then violent action to stop it is in fact the democratic thing to do)
RELIGIOUS, political and community leaders led by the Bishop of Blackburn have condemned the dumping of two pigs heads at an Islamic girls school.
The Rt Rev Julian Henderson said the incident, being treated by police as a hate crime, was ‘abhorrent’ and ‘shocking’.
He was joined in his condemnation by the Dean of Blackburn Christopher Armstrong, the town’s MP Kate Hollern, and the chair of Lancashire’s Council of Mosques Abdul Hamid Qureshi.
The pig heads, particularly offensive to Muslims to whom pork is an ‘impure’ meat, were left at the gates of the Markazul Uloom Girls School in Park Lee Road, Blackburn at the weekend.
Last week graffiti painted on the school wall reading ‘no mosque’ had to be removed.

(The only remotely surprising thing is that they were convicted in a UK court and a website with near the gravitas of a legacy newspaper pointed out that the victim was a white girl when actually yeah, that was likely a significant part of the reason she was chosen as a victim)
Eleven of fifteen Muslim men charged in May with the sexual grooming of a 14-year-old girl have been found guilty, after the judged said they treated his court with “contempt and arrogance”.
The girl was “raped in car parks, parks and churchyards” in the small town of Keighley, near Bradford in the North of England, the court has previously heard.
“In 40 years of practice, I have never seen a dock that has been as insolent and disrespectful as this one. I have the poorest of opinions about the defendants”, blasted Judge Roger Thomas QC at Bradford Crown Court, where the verdict was passed.
