(The thing about this story, is how these slippers were a gift to Tamerlane. I bet that’s a bit of history the left would like to rewrite. Tamerlane was a larger genocidal maniac than Hitler by a long long way, and conquered and slaughtered Hindu territory with glee and pride. Its in his own diaries.)
Shocked by the case of Prophet Mohammad’s slippers missing from Pakistan’s iconic royal mosque for 16 years and angered by inability of country’s law enforcement agencies to recover them, Chief Justice of Pakistan’s Supreme Court has formed a Joint Interrogation Team (JIT) to probe into the case.
Venerated by Muslims worldwide, legend has it that the pair of slippers were first gifted to the emperor Tamerlane on the conquest of Damascus in 1400. Later, they were brought to the sub-continent, along with other relics, in the 16th century, during the early Moghul period.
U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) released the results of a DNA test Monday to prove that she does indeed have Native American ancestry, which has not worked out as planned.
“To make up for the dearth of Native American DNA, Bustamente used samples from Mexico, Peru and Colombia to stand in for Native American,” the Boston Globe reportsaid.
In other words, Warren’s DNA could be Mexican, Peruvian, Colombian or Native American, but the “scientist” behind the test simply assumed that if Warren possessed Mexican, Peruvian or Colombian DNA that she was indeed Native American. Needless to say, none of those three countries are America.
The DNA test also proved that in any circumstance, Warren does not have enough Native American DNA to be considered American Indian by any tribe.

4. This Youtube video is in Turkish and we don’t have any Turkish translators for material at this level of importance. But I trust RT’s translation which states that the Saudi Embassy was painted over where the murder and dismemberment took place.
Material in the Saudi consulate has been painted over since the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters in Ankara on Tuesday.
“My hope is that we can a reach conclusion that will give us a reasonable opinion as soon as possible, because the investigation is looking into many things such as toxic materials and those materials being removed by painting them over, ” he said.
Foreign fighters continue to flow into Syria to join the Islamic State group despite its forces being largely decimated, Pentagon Joint Chiefs chairman Joe Dunford said Tuesday.
Even though the jihadist group’s territory has shrunk to a fraction of what it once was, new followers arrive, mostly over the Turkish border, at a rate of about 100 a month, Dunford said.
While that is down from a peak of about 1,500 a month three years ago, it shows that Islamic State’s ability to attract followers remains potent, he said.
“It’s the flow of foreign fighters, the ability to move resources, and the ideology that allows these groups to operate,” Dunford said, opening a conference on countering violent extremism.

(This may be a good time to mention to all who have not seen it, to get and watch the excellent film, Dracula Untold. A great mix of real history of the Islamic invasion of Europe in past centuries, and a great hero who sacrificed all to stop it for a while, and a monster movie by a British novelist who had no way of knowing how much damage he was doing by writing it)
