  1. Jihadis Back on UK Streets As Spy Boss Warns of New Attack
    Hundreds of terrorists were released in the UK after serving their sentences. It was just revealed 12 terror plots were foiled since 2013.

    Hundreds of convicted terrorists who have served their prison sentences in the UK are now back on the streets without having attended deradicalization programs or renouncing their ideology, according to an investigation by Sky News.

    Out of the 583 convicted of terrorism-related offenses since the 9/11 attacks, some three quarters (418) have now served their sentences and been released, the investigation found. However, of those released, two-thirds refused to engage with deradicalization programs in prison that sought to counter their radical views.

    Those released include three men convicted of assisting in the 2005 7/7 bombings of the London Underground.

    The news comes as senior police officers spoke out about their efforts to prevent jihadists from accessing illegal firearms.

    “Despite our good work, we know that firearms can enter the criminal market through a variety of means, including thefts from legitimate holders or dealers,” London’s Metropolitan Police’s counter-terrorism chief Mark Rowley told Russia Today (RT).

        • Sorry to get it to you so late. The plan is to study a few verses each day, so by Sabbath it’s the whole portion in review. [Ideally chanted communally.]

          The supplementary portion echoes some theme from the main piece. For example, the reading from Isaiah reprises G-d’s promise to Noah, a passage that will be very familiar to practicing Christians.

          When you read the Torah this way, bit by bit, and read the selections from the Prophets, you’ll hear the Words of Jesus as he was heard by his followers. History helps. The Good News is even better when you know what we went through to get here.

          I did a cycle one year with an ancient Jesuit priest, professor emeritus in Classics from Boston College. He knew how to read the Hebrew perfectly – way better than I – exquisite sensitivity to grammar. But he never heard the words or paired the selections in this traditional format. He, in turn, helped me frame the Gospel in this context.

  2. Putin Gives Citizens of Aleppo 10-Hour Truce to Leave City
    Meanwhile, self-styled calif of the Islamic State Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi called on his followers to remain steadfast and stay on the battlefield.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has given the citizens and rebels left in Aleppo a 10-hour window on Friday to escape. The Guardian reported the 9 am-7 pm truce, called by the Russians a “humanitarian pause,” will allow citizens and anti-regime fighters to leave the rebel-held eastern part of the city, which has been the site of a siege and a massive bombing campaign that has all but destroyed the once-thriving city.

    In a statement, Russia’s chief of general staff Valery Gerasimov, announced eight corridors – six for civilians and two for rebel fighters — had been created for escape.

    The Russian bombing of Aleppo stopped 16 days ago amid worldwide condemnation of the campaign that resulted in hundreds of civilian deaths and the destruction of infrastructure, including hospitals.

    The truce comes with the presumption that the bombing will begin anew Friday night.
