    • One can only hope that Prince Harry is ‘man enough’ to call in an air strike of overarmed Hawker Siddeley Harriers that will convert whatever disputed territory in question into so many hectares of merrily bouncing (and appropriately smoking) rubble.

      This includes the aforementioned ISIS “fighter”, all four of that scumbag’s broodmareswives“, every last puling child, bastard shit, sex slave, human shield, concubine, Janissary, and however many other fellow jihadist filthbags that are encamped with this oxygen thieving waste of skin.

      Any questions?

  1. Russian general killed fighting Daesh in Syria (gulfnews, Sep 25, 2017)

    “A Russian general was killed while battling Daesh militants near the eastern Syrian city of Deir Ezzor, Moscow’s defence ministry said Sunday.

    “Division general Valeri Assapov was killed when a shell exploded during shelling by [Daesh] fighters,” the ministry was quoted as saying by local media, adding that the officer was serving as an advisor to Syrian government troops.

    The ministry said Assapov would be posthumously decorated for his service.

    Deir Ezzor province, on Syria’s eastern border with Iraq, is rich with oil and gas fields that served as a key revenue stream for Daesh at the peak of its power.

    Russia intervened in support of the Damascus government in September 2015 and has been assisting regime forces in an assault on Deir Ezzor from the west.”

    • Russia Blames US For Death Of Top General In Syria

      Shortly after Russia disclosed on Sunday that a top Russian military commander, Lieutenant General Valery Asapov – who was serving as one of Russia’s “military advisers” in Syria – was fatally wounded by an exploding shell in a mortar attack by ISIS terrorists, on Monday the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said that the “two-faced policy” of the United States was to blame for the death of the Russian General in Syria.

      Russia has complained about what it has suggested are “suspiciously friendly ties” between U.S.-backed militias, U.S. special forces, and Islamic State in the area, accusing Washington of trying to slow the advance of the Syrian army.

      As a reminder, on Sunday the Russian Ministry of Defense published aerial images which they say show US Army special forces equipment located north of the Syrian town of Deir ez-Zor, where IS militants are deployed. The US troops do not face any “resistance from the ISIS militants,” while their positions have no screening patrol, which could indicate that they “feel absolutely safe” in the area, the ministry said. The US Central Command however denied the accusations in a written statement to RT.

      “The allegations are false. For operational security, we do not comment on ongoing operations or the current positions of Coalition personnel and our partner forces,” the Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve said.

      Ryabkov also questioned Washington’s intention to fight Islamic State in Syria.

      “The American side declares that it is interested in the elimination of IS … but some of its actions show it is doing the opposite and that some political and geopolitical goals are more important for Washington,” Ryabkov said according to Reuters.

      Meanwhile, in keeping with the growing escalation between Russia and the US over Deir Ezzor, earlier on Monday, American-backed Syrian militias again accused Russian warplanes of striking their positions in the oil-rich province, near a natural gas field they seized from Islamic State last week. Russia denied that.

      Despite the growing escalations, the Russian and US militaries maintain “intensive” contacts at different levels, Ryabkov said.

      MoA- Syria – U.S. CentCom Declares War On Russia

      Yesterday three high ranking Russian officers were killed in an “ISIS attack” in eastern-Syrian. It is likely that they were killed by U.S. special forces or insurgents under U.S. special forces control. The incident will be understood as a declaration of war.

      The U.S. Central Command in the Middle East wants the oil fields in east-Syria under control of its proxy forces to set up and control a U.S. aligned Kurdish mini-state in the area. The Syrian government, allied with Russia, needs the revenues of the oil fields to rebuild the country.

      Last week the Russians issued sharply worded statements against U.S. coordination with al-Qaeda terrorists in Idleb province and warned of further escalation.

      Yesterday the Russian Ministry of Defense accused the U.S. military in east-Syria of direct collaboration with the Islamic State:

      US Army special units provide free passage for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) through the battle formations of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists, the ministry said in a statement.
      “Facing no resistance of the ISIS militants, the SDF units are advancing along the left shore of the Euphrates towards Deir ez-Zor,” the statement reads.

      The newly released images “clearly show that US special ops are stationed at the outposts previously set up by ISIS militants.”

      “Despite that the US strongholds being located in the ISIS areas, no screening patrol has been organized at them,” the Russian Ministry of Defense said.

      The accusations are plausible. Large parts of ISIS in Deir Ezzor consist of local tribal forces from eastern-Syria. U.S. special envoy Brett McGurk recently met tribal leaders who had earlier pledged allegiance to ISIS. Deals were made.

      As we wrote:

      The U.S. diplomat tasked with the job, Brett McGurk, recently met with local tribal dignitaries of the area. Pictures of the meeting were published. Several people pointed out that the very same dignitaries were earlier pictured swearing allegiance to the Islamic State.

      Just like during the “Anbar Awaking” in its war on Iraq the U.S. is bribing the local radicals to temporarily change over to its side. This will help the U.S. to claim that it defeated ISIS. But as soon as the payments stop the very same forces will revert back to their old game.[…]

    • Syria: SDF seizes Conoco gas plant in Deir ez-Zor

      Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) managed to establish control over the Conoco gas plant in Deir ez-Zor region, Sunday, after making gains against the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) in the Khasham area.

  2. Notes from NorseRadish:

    While reading Ken Follet’s, “Winter of the World” (Part II of his outstanding historical fiction, “The Century Trilogy”), I ran across his reference to Winston Churchill’s so-called, “Gestapo Speech”. This post-war oration was delivered as part of “The First Conservative Election Broadcast”, on June 4th, 1945. In it, Churchill made what was then considered to be a contemptible and provocatory allegation against the UK’s pro-Socialist Labour Party.

    In sum, it was that Socialist governments, at some point in their continued operation, eventually would come to employ the existence of “a political police“. With stunning prescience, this extraordinary man predicted the rise and eventual dominance of agencies—bred up within modern Europe’s Socialist régimes—that would regularly curtail Freedom of Speech and even seek to quash relatively modest political dissent in general..

    This is especially so with respect to criticizing the government and its legislative decrees. Or, as we have more recently witnessed, expressing any unenthusiastic opinion about a pet demographic or protected species of electoral animal.

    The irony of this pervasive censorship is only amplified when one considers that Islam—replete with its own atrocious political and juridical pseudo-authority—has been granted this same immunity within Europe when, in fact, both entities have revealed themselves to be despotic, colossal tyrannies that crouch behind a façade of benignity and tolerance.

    What follows is a transcript of Churchill’s “Gestapo Speech”. From: “Churchill Was Right” [hat tip: Mark Dixon]

    Socialism is, in its essence, an attack not only upon British enterprise, but upon the right of the ordinary man or woman to breathe freely without having a harsh, clumsy, tyrannical hand clapped across their mouths and nostrils. A Free Parliament – look at that – a Free Parliament is odious to the Socialist doctrinaire. Have we not heard Mr. Herbert Morrison descant upon his plans to curtail Parliamentary procedure and pass laws simply by resolutions of broad principle in the House of Commons, afterwards to be left by Parliament to the executive and to the bureaucrats to elaborate and enforce by departmental regulations? As for Sir Stafford Cripps on “Parliament in the Socialist State,” I have not time to read you what he said, but perhaps it will meet the public eye during the election campaign.

    But I will go farther. I declare to you, from the bottom of my heart, that no Socialist system can be established without a political police. Many of those who are advocating Socialism or voting Socialist to-day will be horrified at this idea. That is because they are short-sighted, that is because they do not see where their theories are leading them.
    No Socialist Government conducting the entire life and industry of the country could afford to allow free, sharp, or violently-worded expressions of public discontent. They would have to fall back on some form of Gestapo, no doubt very humanely directed in the first instance. And this would nip opinion in the bud; it would stop criticism as it reared its head, and it would gather all the power to the supreme party and the party leaders, rising like stately pinnacles above their vast bureaucracies of Civil servants, no longer servants and no longer civil. And where would the ordinary simple folk – the common people, as they like to call them in America – where would they be, once this mighty organism had got them in its grip?

    I stand for the sovereign freedom of the individual within the laws which freely elected Parliaments have freely passed. I stand for the rights of the ordinary man to say what he thinks of the Government of the day, however powerful, and to turn them out, neck and crop, if he thinks he can better his temper or his home thereby, and if he can persuade enough others to vote with him.[emphasis added]

    In President Trump’s recent UN address, he declined to draw any distinction between Socialist and Communist governments. This was something of a first in modern-day American (much less White House) politics.

    By doing so, he swept away several decades of obfuscatory rhetoric that routinely sought to soft-pedal the overweening power of many European governments.

    By doing so, Trump placed Europe’s brand of now-failing Socialism cheek-by-jowl with such abject fiascoes as Venezuela and North Korea. Just as clearly inferred was that Communist regimes like Red China were very much in the same hell-destined handbasket.

    All of which returns us to Churchill’s astonishing clairvoyance regarding inevitable Socialist reliance upon “political police”. Be it Macron, Merkel or Mao, all have demonstrated little in the way of hesitation when it comes to stifling nonconformist opinions. There is no slight paradox regarding how France—with such iconoclastic, nation-wide publications like “Charlie Hebdo”—nonetheless exceeds all save Sweden when it comes to being waist-deep in its own quagmire of Islamization.

    If anything, it is only by a hair’s breadth that America—itself a mixed Capitalist-Socialist system—narrowly escaped even further descent into a “political police” state. One that the previous two-term administration had assiduously cultivated at all levels of media, corporate, and government management.

    Today, we come full circle. Lamentably, not in any gratifying sense of majestic philosophical closure but more akin to Ouroboros, the self-devouring snake. Like old wine in a new bottle, Western nations—the Socialist ones in particular—have spawned (per Churchill’s ominous prediction) their own contemporary breed of black-clad, Nazi Geheime Staatspolizei—the German WWII Secret State Police better known as “Gestapo”.

    These violent, masked, black bloc mobsters patrol metropolitan precincts in search of political deviance or gatherings of individuals who are brazen enough to openly express dissident opinions.

    Even as they gather to physically assault random victims, break windows, vandalize buildings, torch property, and attack anyone impudent enough to oppose their ill-defined and yet, just as often, contradictory standpoints—as in using quintessential Nazi methods to oppress Free Speech in the name of “Antifascism”—their (mis)conduct strains all rational credulity.

    Yet, this is what passes for ostensibly acceptable political measures in a world whose most modern powers-that-be currently allow it to be overrun by intolerant, hostile, barbaric, and semi-retarded cretins who could not—upon taking ultimate control—administer it for even a few short months (much less weeks) without everything spiraling into a sort of (utterly predictable) violent, genocidal chaos of the very worst sort.

    All the same, everyone is supposed to look askance whenever any suggestion is made that Socialist governments might, somehow, become overly-reliant upon Churchill’s alarmingly predicted, “political police”.

    Regardless of the man’s numerous shortcomings (like any other human being on earth), I will leave you with some of Sir Winston’s most stirring quotations. First is the most obvious. After that is the most worthy. To begin with:

    How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.


      • This link is a rich source of information . Thank you NorseRadish.

        You are so very welcome, Perfectchild.

        I sincerely appreciate you having reviewed this essay of mine.

        For all of his various personal shortcomings, Churchill’s ability to so succinctly summarize the fatal flaws of 20th Century nemeses such as Islam and Socialism leaves him standing almost alone in his field—especially when it comes to providing some of the earliest predictions about what dark corners the Free World would have to examine for indications of its future destiny.

        To be perfectly clear, Winston Churchill was one of modern history’s most skilled and eloquent orators, bar none. Put along-side of him, 0bama was (especially without his teleprompters) the very worst sort of totally incompetent imposter. I say this as someone with some slight degree of public speaking ability.

        Again, your gracious reply made the effort of composing this essay entirely worthwhile. Thank you so much.


        • Sobering thoughts.

          Watching with horror the emerging Gestapo in Canada. Fortunately Canada hasn’t sunk as deeply into socialism as most of Europe has – at least not yet. But the mass invasion of a species of parasite to a host so compromised by cultural marxism – grim prognosis, I’m afraid.

          It’s that combination you highlight from Churchill that’s the real killer. Wet-nurse/Nanny-State that becomes more sinister as resources are inevitably depleted.

          Thank-you for your thoughtful essay, Norse.

          Not exactly on topic, but a whiff of the KGB in an article I read today: Arrested by the KGB in Russia.

          • It’s that combination you highlight from Churchill that’s the real killer. Wet-nurse/Nanny-State that becomes more sinister as resources are inevitably depleted.

            Thank-you for your thoughtful essay, Norse.

            As with Perfectchild, I cannot express sufficient gratitude, yucki.

            Churchill’s ability to identify both the insane evil of Islam and then concisely summarize Socialism’s tendency to generate it’s own “Social Police” is mind-bending.

            How sad that it has required almost another CENTURY for all involved to grasp this fact.

            Bless you.

  3. Libyan general Khalifa Haftar accused of human rights abuses (theguardian, Sep 25, 2017)

    “European leaders are embracing a Libyan general who has ordered his soldiers to commit war crimes, according to new evidence that has been analysed by senior legal experts.

    The allegation of human rights abuses by Gen Khalifa Haftar, a former CIA asset who controls nearly half of Libya from his base in the east, comes as the general is due to arrive in Rome on Tuesday, where he will be received by Italian officials.

    The visit is a radical departure for Italy, who had previously shunned Haftar and seen him as a major obstacle to stability in the region because of his refusal to recognise the UN-backed government in the west.

    The two experts – a former top Pentagon attorney and a former official at the international criminal court – said that newly unearthed video evidence suggests that Haftar has been complicit in calling for extrajudicial killings and the unlawful siege of the eastern port city of Derna. In one case, he is believed to have called for the “choking” of Derna just a day after he met Boris Johnson, the UK foreign secretary, in Benghazi.

    The new assessment, published on the Just Security blog, follows the recent issuing of an arrest warrant by the ICC for Mahmoud Mustafa Busayf al-Werfalli, a member of Haftar’s Libyan National Army. Werfalli stands accused of executing prisoners himself, as well as commanding others to carry out extrajudicial killings. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have also condemned alleged war crimes by the LNA.

    The legal questions, and longstanding doubts among officials in the west about Haftar’s trustworthiness, have not dissuaded European leaders from seeking to forge an alliance with him…”

  4. Survey reveals scale of hostility towards Arabs in Britain (theguardian, Sep 25, 2017)

    “The scale of hostility in Britain towards Islam and Arabs is revealed in a YouGov survey showing most UK voters believe Arabs have failed to integrate themselves into British society, and their presence has not been beneficial.

    The survey also shows that most voters back security policing based on assumptions about the likelihood of races to commit crimes – so-called racial profiling.

    Only 28% believe migration from the Arab world has been beneficial to the UK, and 64% believe Arabs have failed to integrate.

    The survey also shows most voters believe the number of refugees entering the UK from war-torn Syria and Iraq has been too high.

    The three characteristics most closely associated with the Arab world by British people are gender segregation, wealth and Islam, with extremism and a rich history the next two identified characteristics. The degree of association with innovation or forward thinking is miniscule.

    The poll, commissioned by the Council for Arab-British Understanding and the New Arab newspaper, also reveals scepticism about UK foreign policy in the region with only 15% of those surveyed saying they agreed that the UK’s foreign policy in the Arab world had helped human rights and global security. Only 13% believe UK foreign policy has been a stabilising force in the Arab world…”

    “POLICE have foiled seven terror plots since the car and knife attack on Westminster Bridge in March that left five people dead, Sadiq Khan has revealed.

    Anti-terror police told the London Mayor there had been a shift in the threat over the last year, but officers claim there has not been a rise in the number of terror plots.

    Speaking at the Labour party conference, Mr Khan said: “The phrase used by police experts, counter-terror experts, in relation to terrorism is what we’re seeing is not a spike but a shift….”

    “Founded in 1985, it is one of the few firms outside Silicon Valley to play a leading role in the global computing industry. Apple, the company’s biggest customer, uses many of the 1.2billion chips produced every year in its iPhones and iPads.

    But this year Imagination’s share price crashed when the US tech giant said it wanted to make its own chips instead. It set the scene for a legal case that could drag on for years.

    Apple is also said to have poached several key staff from Imagination, which employs more than 1,000 people in 20 countries and has its HQ in Kings Langley, Hertfordshire.

    Ministers have powers to block the Chinese takeover under the 2002 Enterprise Act, which lets the Business Secretary refuse bids that could damage national security.”

  7. ‘ARE YOU MAN ENOUGH?’ISIS challenges Prince Harry to a fight vowing to send him and his Apache helicopters to ‘hellfire’

    The Royal, who served as a chopper pilot in Afghanistan, is directly challenged by a fatigued terror thug who identifies himself as Abu Uqayl

    ISIS has challenged Prince Harry to fight the jihadists — with one warped terrorist warning: “We will send you and your Apaches to hellfire”.

    A disturbing video shows a Singaporean fighter who identifies himself as Abu Uqayl taking issue with the Royal speaking about terrorism during a recent trip to the city-state.

  8. Pentagon Tests Lasers and Nets to Combat a Vexing Foe: ISIS Drones

    WASHINGTON — At the vast, windswept White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico earlier this year, nearly a dozen military contractors armed with laser guns, high-tech nets and other experimental systems met to tackle one of the Pentagon’s most vexing counterterrorism conundrums: how to destroy the Islamic State’s increasingly lethal fleet of drones.

    The militant group has used surveillance drones on the battlefield for more than two years. But an increase in deadly attacks since last fall — mostly targeting Iraqi troops and Syrian militia members with small bombs or grenades, but also threatening American advisers — has highlighted the terrorists’ success in adapting off-the-shelf, low-cost technology into an effective new weapon.

    The Pentagon is so alarmed by this growing threat — even as it routs the Islamic State from its strongholds in Mosul, Iraq, and Raqqa, Syria — that it has launched a $700 million crash program overseen by two senior Army generals to draw on the collective know-how and resources of all branches of the armed services, Silicon Valley and defense industry giants like Boeing and Raytheon to devise tactics and technology to thwart the menace.

  9. Trump slaps travel restrictions on North Korea, Venezuela in sweeping new ban

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump on Sunday slapped new travel restrictions on citizens from North Korea, Venezuela and Chad, expanding to eight the list of countries covered by his original travel bans that have been derided by critics and challenged in court.

    Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Somalia were left on the list of affected countries in a new proclamation issued by the president. Restrictions on citizens from Sudan were lifted.

    The measures help fulfill a campaign promise Trump made to tighten U.S. immigration procedures and align with his “America First” foreign policy vision. Unlike the president’s original bans, which had time limits, this one is open-ended.

    “Making America Safe is my number one priority. We will not admit those into our country we cannot safely vet,” the president said in a tweet shortly after the proclamation was released.

    Iraqi citizens will not be subject to travel prohibitions but will face enhanced scrutiny or vetting.

  10. Tennessee Church Shooting Suspect Is A Sudanese Bodybuilder

    Nashville Police have identified the suspect of a mass shooting at a church Sunday morning as 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson.

    Samson is being charged with murder and multiple counts of attempted murder in the attack that killed one and left at least seven other people injured at the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, a town just south of Nashville, Tenn.

  11. Trump’s new travel ban could be harder to fight in court

    NEW YORK (Reuters) – President Donald Trump’s announcement on Sunday restricting travelers from an expanded list of countries has already been roundly criticized by immigrant and civil rights groups as no more lawful than his previous travel ban, but it could stand a better chance of holding up in court, legal experts said.

    The new presidential proclamation, which Trump said is needed to screen out terrorist or public safety threats, indefinitely restricts travel from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea. Certain government officials from Venezuela will also be barred.

    Trump’s Mar. 6 temporary travel ban, which replaced another ban from January and expired on Sunday, targeted six Muslim-majority countries. It sparked international outrage and was quickly blocked by federal courts as unconstitutional discrimination or a violation of immigration law.

  12. China urges restraint amid war of words between Trump and North Korea

    BEIJING/SEOUL (Reuters) – China on Monday called for all sides in the North Korea missile crisis to show restraint and not “add oil to the flames” amid an exchange of increasingly bellicose rhetoric between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

    North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told the U.N. General Assembly on Saturday that targeting the U.S. mainland with its rockets was inevitable after “Mr Evil President” Trump called Pyongyang’s leader a “rocket man” on a suicide mission.

    “Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won’t be around much longer!” Trump said on Twitter late on Saturday.

    North Korea, which has pursued its missile and nuclear programmers in defiance of international condemnation, said it “bitterly condemned the reckless remarks” of the U.S. president, saying they were an “intolerable insult to the Korean people” and a declaration of war, the North’s official news agency said on Monday.

    • China has been pulling North Korea’s strings since the 1950s, if they wanted to they could stop the tests and remove all of the fissal and equipment. They aren’t because for some reason they want chaos.

  13. Turkey: Erdogan threatens military intervention amid Kurdish referendum

    The Turkish army could intervene in disputed Kurdish areas of Iraq amid the Kurdish Regional Government’s independence referendum, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in an address from Ankara, Monday.

    • Turkey President Erdogan Accuses Myanmar of ‘Buddhist Terror’ Against Rohingya

      Erdogan, who has repeatedly highlighted the plight of the Rohingya, again accused the Yangon government of carrying out a “genocide” against the people in Rakhine state.

      Istanbul: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday accused the security forces in Myanmar of waging a “Buddhist terror” against the Rohingya Muslim minority in the country, hundreds of thousands of whom have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh.

      Erdogan, who has repeatedly highlighted the plight of the Rohingya, again accused the Yangon government of carrying out a “genocide” against the people in Rakhine state.

      In a speech in Istanbul, Erdogan lamented the failure of the international community to lay sanctions against the Myanmar government over its campaign.

      “There is a very clear genocide over there,” Erdogan said.

      Erdogan, who has held talks by phone with Myanmar’s key leader the Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung Sang Suu Kyi, added: “Buddhists always get represented as envoys of goodwill.”

      “At the moment, there is a clear Buddhist terror in Myanmar… I don’t know how you can gloss over this with yoga, schmoga. This is a fact here. And all humanity needs to know this.”

      More than 430,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled across the border to Bangladesh from a military campaign which the UN says likely amounts to ethnic cleansing of the stateless minority.

      Before the most recent surge of violence, there were over one million Rohingyas in Myanmar’s restive Rakhine state in the west of the overwhelmingly Buddhist country.

      Erdogan, himself a pious Muslim, takes a sharp interest in the fate of Muslim communities across the world and notably sees himself as a champion of the Palestinian cause.

      Returning for a key personal theme, he lambasted the international community for being quick to denounce “Islamic terror” but not “Christian terror”, “Jewish terror” or “Buddhist terror”.

      Turkey’s Erdogan condemns ‘Buddhist terror’ in Myanmar

      ANKARA, Turkey — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused Myanmar of engaging in “Buddhist terror” against the minority Muslim Rohingya population.

      In a speech in Istanbul Monday, Erdogan said even though a “clear genocide” was taking place in Myanmar, Buddhists are depicted as “envoys of goodwill.”

      He said: “At the moment, there is a Buddhist terror going on in Myanmar … It’s not something that can be hidden through yoga and such things.”

      The Turkish leader, who has been outspoken on the plight of the Rohingya, also accused the international community of remaining indifferent and of failing to sanction Myanmar’s government.

      Erdogan said: “There should be sanctions so that (Myanmar) tidies up its act.”

  14. cnn -Police: Man arrested near White House had cache of weapons in car

    A man who was arrested near the White House Sunday morning was found to have nine guns and three knives in his car, according to a police report. The man was initially stopped by law enforcement for allegedly urinating in public.

    Secret Service Uniform Division officers approached the man outside an art gallery in the area of 17th street and Pennsylvania Avenue near the White House, according to law enforcement sources and arrest records.

    The suspect told Secret Service officers and agents that he was going to the White House to speak with National Security Agency Director Admiral Mike Rogers and Defense Secretary James Mattis “for advice on missing paychecks and how to get the chip out of my head,” according to the incident report obtained by CNN.

    The man was discovered driving a 2009 Silver Nissan with Tennessee Fraternal Order of Police license plates. After being questioned by law enforcement and admitting to having multiple weapons, according to the report, he consented to a search of his vehicle. The search turned up nine guns, three knives, brass knuckles, suppressors, and various types of ammunition. The firearms included multiple handguns as well as AR- and AK-style rifles.

    The suspect was taken to a DC facility “for mental observation” and later transported to a DC police station, where he was charged with multiple weapons violations, according to the report.

    It wasn’t immediately clear if the man was previously known by law enforcement.

  16. Anti-gay hysteria is on the rise in Indonesia
    Sodomy is not a crime, but may soon become one
    In early 2016 the Indonesia Broadcasting Commission banned television stations from screening images of “effeminate men” or of anyone campaigning for rights for gay or transgender people, to protect children from “deviant” influences. The pressure on gay and transgender Indonesians has only increased since. In May in Aceh province, which has used its special, semi-autonomous status to adopt some elements of sharia (Islamic law), the authorities publicly caned two men caught having sex with one another. Indonesia does not have a national law against sodomy, but around the same time the police in Jakarta rounded up 140 or so men at a gay sauna, saying they may have broken the law on pornography. The police chief of the province of West Java, Anton Charliyan, has pledged to set up an anti-gay task force, charged with trawling through social media posts to detect gay events to raid.
    Indonesia has a long-standing, indigenous transgender tradition. Men who identify as women are labelled waria, a fusion of the words for men and women. During the 1960s the governor of Jakarta, Ali Sadikin, founded an advocacy group for waria. Waria dancers were among the attractions at the annual Jakarta Fair. Until recently gay venues and gay activism were grudgingly tolerated in big cities.

    A wave of anti-gay hysteria is now testing this tolerance. In July Map Boga Adiperkasa, a company that runs the local branches of Starbucks, disavowed the brand’s support for gay rights after a huge Muslim group called for a boycott. Several politicians have proposed criminalising homosexuality. There is much talk of the insidious threat to the fabric of the nation.

    The government of Joko Widodo, the reformist president, has joined in. Ministers have mused about banning gay student groups from universities, or attempting to weed out gay civil servants. The attorney-general’s office has stated explicitly that it will not hire any gay or transgender staff. (Indonesia does not have a law protecting gay or transgender people from discrimination.)

  17. I am not sure if anyone linked to this article, but it is worth reading. Muslim community in Manchester described in article is similar to some Muslim communities in Canada. And in my opinion introduction of the M-103 will only deepen this similarity, preventing expressing any negative views, even true ones, regarding Muslims, Muslim community or Islam.. And what has happened in Manchester may (or rather “will”) happen in Canada.

  18. Germany: My family ‘violently attacked’ by anti-AfD protesters – AfD’s spokesman Meuthen

    Alternative for Germany co-leader Joerg Meuthen deplored the protests that took place outside the party’s election night venue, following Sunday’s results; he was speaking at a press conference in Berlin, on Monday.

    SOT, Alexander Gauland, co-founder of Alternative for Germany (German): “Of course we should pursue the government. One has to pursue it in the parliamentary debate, and I have expressed that clearly and we’re going to do that. And please can people not have a fearful vision, that doesn’t work at all. And we want to take our country back, that is on some of our campaign posters. Sorry, we are of the opinion that we want another form of politics. One million foreign people were taken into this country, and then they take part of this nation away. And, as the AfD, we don’t want this. And we’ve been elected clearly on the basis of this policy.”

    SOT, Joerg Meuthen, AfD co-leaders (German): And do you know what then happens? What happened outside our election party yesterday, that we couldn’t come out from the campaign party in fear for our life and limb. That my partner and her daughter were violently attacked by these demonstrators, these who say – for example Mr Gabriel and others – that we are Nazis or something that is horrific. This is what these naive people believe, apparently, and then they carry out these attacks on Germany’s streets. Strictly speaking, that is the violence taken out by our political rivals. We are furious about this. We’re a party that stands completely by the rule of law and freedom. And we want to take care of the democratic discourse.”

    SOT, Alexander Gauland, co-founder of Alternative for Germany (German): “Name me one rational debate in the Bundestag – funnily, Mr Bosbach also said the same – name me one rational debate on the issues of Russian sanctions, the NSA espionage affair, on the rescuing of the Euro. There is none anymore, it has been apathetic. We want to have a culture of debate in the Bundestag that results in the people knowing which decisions were reached and who stands by them.”

    SOT, Alice Weidel, AfD candidate (German): “This refugee policy that was implemented in 2015 violated every legal basis, it is illegal, and that is also a reason that we want to take our country back. Because we want to return our country to one which is based in the rule of law, which has been violated by the CDU, and the SPD in the past.”

  19. ‘One of the key figures in Germany’s resurgent far-right party Alternative für Deutschland party is a lesbian mother-of-two who has faced claims she employed an illegal immigrant as a cleaner – and is against gay marriage.

    Dr Alice Weidel, 38, stormed to victory last night with the AfD claiming almost 13 per cent of the vote and due to hold 94 of the 709 seats in the Bundestag, the first time a right-wing party will sit in the Bundestag since the defeat of the Nazis in 1945.

    The dynamic former Goldman Sachs banker, who speaks Chinese, has used her sexuality on the campaign trail as an example of how her party is misunderstood, telling a rally in Viernheim last week: ‘I am homosexual. I waited on purpose to see, but nobody seems to have got up and walked out. Which is of course a surprise as the AfD is a homophobic party. I read this everyday!'”

    “..has used her sexuality on the campaign trail…”
    These Doms are Far, Far Left National Socialists. The Subs, whom they despise, are the Far Left International Socialists. Psychopaths or Sociopaths, who both claim by sexual liberation, they are the true elite.

    Nothing learned and nothing has changed.

  20. ‘Stop thinking with your bleeding heart instead of your brain’: Outrage as Government says Australia will resettle and provide welfare for 70 children of dead ISIS fighters (dailymail, Sep 25, 2017)

    “Australians have been left outraged after it was announced 70 children of ISIS fighters could be returning to the country as the terror organisation begins to disintegrate.

    Justice Minister Michael Keenan told Fairfax the children would be given counselling and welfare, and their transitions would be closely monitored, but for many it was not enough to allay their fears.

    ‘These foreign trained little f***ers are going to be so lethal, the politicians are putting our children at risk’ one woman said on Facebook.

    Others shared concerns that the move would only encourage more people to go overseas, as their children could be protected. ..”

  21. US-backed forces say Russia attacked them in eastern Syria (abcnews, Sep 25, 2017)

    “U.S.-backed forces in eastern Syria say Russia bombed their positions on Monday in a major natural gas field they recently captured from Islamic State militants.

    The Syrian Democratic Forces said a Russian airstrike killed one of its fighters and wounded two others in the Conoco gas field, in Deir el-Zour province. Russia’s Defense Ministry denied the report.

    SDF fighters captured Conoco field, Syria’s largest, from IS militants on Saturday.

    It was not the first time the SDF has accused Russia of targeting its forces in oil and gas-rich Deir el-Zour, where Russian backed Syrian troops are waging a separate offensive against the extremists. The two sides are racing to defeat the militants and snap up oil and gas fields, fueling fears of conflict between the two groups and their superpower sponsors.

  22. Myanmar officials: Insurgents killed 45 Hindu villagers (abcnews, Sep 25, 2017)

    “Myanmar officials said Monday they have discovered at least 45 slain Hindus in three mass graves in the Southeast Asian country’s conflict-torn northern Rakhine state. The government blames Muslim insurgents for the killings.

    Two of the graves were found Sunday and contained the bodies of 20 females and eight males, Border Guard Police Maj. Zayar Nyein said. The government’s Information Committee said on its Facebook page that all eight males were boys, including six who were under 10 years old.

    It said another mass grave was discovered 200 meters (200 yards) away on Monday that contained the bodies of 17 more Hindu villagers.

    Police blame the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army insurgent group, or ARSA. Security forces say the bodies are among about 100 Hindus missing since ARSA attacked at least 30 police outposts Aug. 25.

    There was no immediate way to independently verify the government’s assertions…”

  23. 4 men accused of killings in Syria go on trial in Germany (abcnews, Sep 25, 2017)

    “Four asylum-seekers have gone on trial in Germany accused of executing 36 members of the Syrian security forces while they were members of the Nusra Front extremist group.

    Prosecutors say the four men killed their victims — police officers, security officials and soldiers — at a garbage site in the Syrian city of Tabqa in March 2013.

    The defendants appeared before Stuttgart’s regional court Monday on charges of war crimes, murder and membership in a foreign terrorist organization.

    The men, who came to Germany as refugees, were identified as 28-year-old Abdul Jawad A. K.; 24-year-old Abdoulfatah A.; 26-year-old Abdulrahman A. A.; and 35-year-old Abdalfatah H. A.

  24. Almost Half of Crimes in Berlin Committed by Migrants (breitbart, Sep 25, 2017)

    “Almost half of the individuals suspected of a recorded crime in Berlin last year were individuals who don’t have a German passport, the latest police statistics show.

    The proportion of crimes carried out by immigrants rose to 45 per cent last year, a five per cent increase from 2015, when they comprised 40 per cent of crimes committed in the German capital.

    According to Berliner Morgenpost, which reported on the data before a longer version of the city’s crime statistics is published, the figure includes tourists, and “traveling gangs” who specialise in burglaries and pickpocketing.

    Foreigners were particularly overrepresented in the figures for certain crimes, according to the statistics, which showed non-German suspects in 91 per cent of pickpocketing offences, 85 per cent of crimes related to heroin trafficking, and 80 per cent of car thefts.

    The newspaper noted that the data’s inclusion of immigration violations plays a part in the large contribution migrants appear to be making to the crime scene in Berlin, yet the proportion of foreign suspects still sits at 37 per cent when border violations are taken out of the equation — well out of proportion for the actual number of foreigners in the country.

    According to police statistics released earlier this year, foreigners commit crime at three and a half times the rate of Germans, with the crime rate of asylum seekers around seven times that of Germans. For violent crime, the data showed foreigners commit five times more than Germans, and asylum seekers at a rate 15 times higher than people with German passports.

    Despite the statistics, the left-wing coalition which governs the German capital claimed that “right-wing extremism” is the primary threat to Berliners’ safety, in a report published December, just two weeks before a truck attack at a Christmas market in the city claimed 12 lives.

    The German Federal Police have previously stated that the huge influx of people who arrived at the height of Europe’s migrant crisis directly led to an increase in crime within their jurisdiction.

    At the country’s federal elections on Sunday, voters expressed their opposition to the decision of Chancellor Angela Merkel to open Europe’s borders, propelling the populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party into the Bundestag for the first time.”

  25. ‘North African Background’ Belgian Police Officer Caught Leaking Info To Jihadists (breitbart, Sep 25, 2017)

    “A Brussels police officer has been arrested after authorities caught him handing over information to a terror cell who were under criminal investigation.

    Officer Momo E.S., who comes from a North African background, had been under investigation by authorities for weeks before his arrest. Police say that he used the social messaging service WhatsApp to give the terror cell details on what was going on with the police investigation into their group’s activities De Tijd reports.

    The committee investigating Mr E.S. say that they are currently working on finding out just how many messages he sent to the terror cell and what specific information has passed on to them.

    It is said that he would have had access to information indicating when potential raids on suspects would have occurred and may have passed on the information to allow the suspects to evade capture.

    The officer will be charged for violation of professional secrecy and corruption but so far prosecutors have not brought up any terrorism-related charges.

    The case is not the first time Islamist sympathisers have been caught working for state authorities in European countries and using their position to help fellow Islamists…”

  27. Iraq hangs 42 Sunni militants convicted of terrorism

    BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Iraq on Sunday executed 42 Sunni Muslim militants convicted on terrorism charges ranging from killing members of security forces to detonating car bombs.

    The biggest mass execution this year in Iraq came after Sunni suicide attacks killed at least 60 people near the southern city of Nassiriya, a Shi’ite area, on Sept. 14, prompting Shi’ite demands for tougher judicial action.

    Amnesty International criticized the move, saying on Monday that “mass execution is a shocking display of the Iraqi authorities’ resort to the death penalty to try to show they are responding to security threats”.

    “The death penalty is an irreversible and reprehensible punishment that should not be used in any circumstances and there is no evidence to show that it deters crime more than any other means of punishment,” Amnesty said in a report.

    The Justice Ministry said on Sunday the 42 had been hanged at a prison in Nassiriya, three months after 14 other militants were executed following convictions for terrorism.

    Islamic State claimed responsibility for three suicide attacks targeting restaurants and a security checkpoint near Nassiriya.

    Relatives of victims were invited to witness Sunday’s executions, the justice ministry said.

    “Despite all the pain inside me after losing my two brothers in the suicide attacks, when I saw the terrorists dangling from the rope I felt relief,” said Fadhil Abdul Ameer from Nassiriya.

    Islamic State’s self-declared caliphate, declared in 2014 after it captured wide areas of northern and western Iraq, effectively collapsed in July when U.S.-backed Iraqi forces captured Mosul, the group’s de facto capital in Iraq.

    But recent deadly bomb attacks in Baghdad and other cities show the jihadists remain capable of guerrilla-style warfare, a tactical shift away from seeking territorial conquest.

  30. Islamists Responsible for Rohingya Refugee Crisis

    by Mohshin Habib
    September 25, 2017 at 4:00 am

    A surge in clashes between Islamist terrorists and the government of Burma (Myanmar) is at the root of a refugee crisis in Southeast Asia that has caused the United Nations and international media to focus attention on the Rohingyas in the northern Rakhine, an isolated province in the west of the Buddhist-majority country.

    In late August 2017, a terrorist group calling itself the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) launched a series of coordinated attacks on Burmese security forces in northern Rakhine. When the Burmese Army announced that it had responded by killing 370 assailants, Rohingya activists claimed that many of the dead were innocent people who had not been involved in the attacks. They also accused the authorities of demolishing Rohingya villages — devastation that was shown in satellite images released by Human Rights Watch — but the Burmese government said that it was carried out by ARSA, which had committed similar attacks on Burmese police in October 2016.

    Since those events, hundreds of thousands of Rohingyas — Muslims who settled in Burma prior to its independence in 1948 — have been fleeing for the last two years, primarily to neighboring India and Bangladesh, in an attempt to escape violence and poverty. Fearing for its national security, on the grounds that among the refugees are ARSA terrorists and sympathizers with ties to ISIS and other Islamist organizations, India issued a deportation order for the Rohingyas who had crossed the border illegally. This move, however, was met with resistance by the Indian Supreme Court. Bangladesh has addressed the problem by severely restricting the movement of the Rohingya refugees.

    The National Football League is in a golden age right now: It’s been 23 days since one of its players has been arrested.

    The average time between arrests is just seven days, while the record without an arrest is slightly more than two months, at 65 days, according to, which “provides an interactive visualized database of National Football League player Arrests & Charges,” the site says.

    Players get arrested for a variety of crimes: drunk driving, drug offenses, domestic violence, assault and battery, gun violations, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, theft, burglary, rape and even murder.


  32. Mesa mother speaks out after teacher alters Declaration of Independence

    MESA, AZ – A Mesa mother is voicing concerns after her child’s 4th-grade teacher changed words in the Declaration of Independence, and made the students recite the altered version in class.

    The teacher at Salk Elementary school crossed out the words “man” and substituted it with “human”.

    The mother, Elizabeth Vaillencourt said the teacher’s goal may have been to include women as well, but she went too far in altering a historical document.

    When Vaillencourt took this concern to school officials, she was initially told she had “hurt the teacher’s feelings” by posting about it on social media.

    The school reacted by removing Vaillencourt’s child from that teacher’s classroom, and placing them under a different teacher.

  33. McCainCare
    The dishonorable Senator from Arizona.
    September 25, 2017
    Daniel Greenfield

    It’s official.

    Senator John McCain won’t vote for ObamaCare repeal. He won’t vote for any health care bill that isn’t “bipartisan.” And any bipartisan bill will be ObamaCare plus something even worse.

    If McCain won’t vote for a health care bill that isn’t bipartisan, he won’t vote for ObamaCare repeal.


    That’s information that voters could have used when Senator McCain was running for reelection last year on a platform of repealing ObamaCare.

    Richard: McCain is once again betraying the people who voted him into office. A long time ago he last the right to be considered a hero, his betrayal of the US and the people who voted him into office prove he isn’t a honest person.

    • A long time ago he lost the right to be considered a hero…

      TOO RIGHT, Richard!!!

      I deeply regret ever having praised his Vietnam-era POW war record.

      This scumbag is pure RINO, right down to the piss-poor vision and ginormous turds.

  34. The Left’s Double Standard on Firing Employees for Their Speech
    September 25, 2017
    Daniel Greenfield

    When James Damore, a Google engineer, proposed some suggestions for promoting women in coding by recognizing that the genders have different orientations, he was fired.

    Google fired him after vocal urging from the left. And the media defended and celebrated his firing. It did so just as vocally as it’s defending the NFL players and owners expressing their hatred for America and the Anthem. And as vocally as it’s attacking President Trump for suggesting that anti-American NFL players who put their black nationalist politics ahead of America be fired.

    And this is typical.

    It was okay to fire James Damore because the left found his speech offensive. It’s not okay to fire NFL players because the left likes their speech.

    The only principle at work here is the supremacy of the left. And that’s always the case. The left has no consistent position on free speech. Or on the right of employees to engage in controversial speech at their workplace.

  35. Calling Out Terrorist Supporters Is A Hate Crime?
    Censorship and persecution at UC Berkeley.
    September 25, 2017
    Matthew Vadum

    Campus police have opened a hate-crime investigation into the David Horowitz Freedom Center after its informational posters were circulated around UC Berkeley exposing various radical students and faculty as “terrorist supporters.”

    The probe comes as Berkeley shuts down the planned “Free Speech Week” that was to have gotten underway Sunday. Free Speech Week was to be hosted by Milo Yiannopoulos, whose speech on the campus in February was shut down by the violent left-wing radicals of Antifa, the pretended anti-fascist activists. The environment on campus at that time and now is like a scene out of the science fiction novel, Fahrenheit 451, in which authorities organize the extinguishing of free expression instead of protecting it. At Yiannopoulos’s speech and other conservative campus events, Berkeley campus police have at times stood by and done nothing as conservatives were physically assaulted, or in some cases, made it easier for leftists to batter conservatives.

    Of course the idea of “hate crimes” rests on shaky ground. If one commits a crime, what does it matter if the person did so on the basis of “hate”? A murder victim is just as dead if the murderer convinced himself he was acting out of love.

  36. Burgess Owens Calls Out NFL Kneelers: “Stand Up As Men”

    Former Oakland Raider and New York Jets player, Burgess Owens, weighed in on the NFL Anthem controversy this weekend on “Fox & Friends,” with Osi Umenyoria describing it as, “unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.”

    Over the past few days, President Trump has addressed the rapid spread of the Colin kaepernick style kneeling protest. “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he’s fired. He’s fired,” Trump asked during a recent rally in Alabama.

    On Sunday, the President doubled down, tweeting, “If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our flag and country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!”

    The President’s remarks drew sharp criticism from the usual quarters, with athletes from Lebron James to Stephen Curry, and even Roger Goodell condemning Trump’s comments. Individual NFL franchises and owners also issued assorted statements on the controversy. “What you just saw was a variety of responses with the theme of unity,” an NFL representative told CNN. “All across the league, owners, coaches and players came together to decide what was best for them.” The NFL rep added, “If Trump thought he could divide the NFL, he was wrong.”

  37. North Korea accuses US of declaring war, says it has right to shoot down bombers

    North Korea’s foreign minister on Monday accused President Donald Trump of declaring war, saying that gives the rogue regime the right to shoot down U.S. strategic bombers.

    Pyongyang could target planes even when they are not flying in North Korean airspace, Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told reporters in New York.

    “The whole world should clearly remember it was the U.S. who first declared war on our country,” he said.

    “Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside the airspace border of our country,” he added.
