Terrorists inside the Sinai Peninsula attacked an IDF patrol at the Egyptian border, near Shivta and Ezuz on Wednesday afternoon.

Two soldiers from the Caracal battalion were injured in the attack from an anti-tank missile and gunfire, according to the IDF.

A female officer and a male soldier were evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in Be’er Sheva by helicopter. They are listed in good and fair condition, respectively.

The IDF sent a large number of troops to the scene to prevent infiltration of terrorists into Israel. It is believed the IDF soldiers were able to return fire and hit the attackers. Unconfirmed reports said a number of the terrorists were killed.

In what initially appeared to be an unrelated motor vehicle accident, an IDF jeep overturned about four kilometers (2.5 miles) from the scene, in the Eshkol Regional Council district. Four soldiers were injured in the incident, according to a security source who said they were listed in good condition.

Defense officials are analyzing data in order to determine whether there was, in fact, any infiltration into Israeli territory.

Three American Girls En Route to Syria Planned to Join Militant Groups, Official Says

The FBI tracked down three American teenage girls in Germany while they were en route to Syria to join militant groups, a law enforcement official told ABC News today.

The girls, who are from the Denver area, were trying “to fulfill what they believe is some vision that has been put out on a slick media campaign” by radical groups in Syria, including ISIS, the official said.

The girls have not been identified, but law enforcement officials said two are sisters — 15 and 17 years old — and one is 16 years old. The two sisters are from Somalia and the 16-year-old is from Sudan, according to a federal law enforcement source briefed on the case.

This is part of a worrisome trend of “disaffected youth” who are being radicalized, the official said, pointing to the wider phenomenon of foreign fighters converging on the conflict in the region.

There have been other cases of high school age kids trying to get to Syria that haven’t been made public, the official said.

The girls were persuaded to travel overseas and were in contact with someone in Germany, the official said, noting that someone close to them notified authorities.

SPOKESMAN FOR KENYAN PRESIDENT: HEY DENMARK, WE DETERMINE YOUR REFUGEE POLICY…….

 

Open borders tyrant. (but the open borders are just meant for the West)

That’s pretty much what he was saying, that a sovereign state is ”duty bound” to accept whatever the number of refugees that there may be, meaning, regardless of how many the number and in perpetuity, and refusal to do so means that you’re a racist.

Kenya to Denmark: Keep your refugees

Published: 22 Oct 2014 08:23 GMT+02:00

Two opposition parties’ proposals to send refugees back to where they came from has been slammed by Kenyan officials as “condescending and ridiculous”, according to Kenyan newspaper Daily Nation.

“It almost borders on racism. Why would they want to bring there here from their country?” Mwedna Njoka, a spokesman for Kenya’s Interior Ministry, told the paper.

Earlier this month, opposition parties Liberal Alliance (LA) and the Danish People’s Party (DF) both presented variations on the same basic proposed solution to Denmark’s refugee influx: ship them back from whence they came.

LA’s proposal calls for Denmark to stop accepting all refugees who are fleeing from wars, with party leader Anders Samuelsen telling Jyllands-Posten that “they should be turned around at the airport, put on a plane and sent to a refugee camp in the area of where they came from.” Instead, the party suggests, refugees should be helped in Danish-run camps abroad.

DF’s plan suggested that Danish-run refugee camps should be set up in “an African country, a country in Asia or the Middle East”.

Leading opposition party Venstre called the ideas “interesting” but party spokeswoman Inger Støjberg told Politiko that she had doubts about getting “other countries to take on the responsibility”.

Based on Njoka’s remarks, Denmark can rule out Kenya.

“Every country has an obligation to allow refugees in its country,” Njoka told Daily Nation, which pointed out that Kenya hosts 600,000 refugees from Somalia while Denmark has just 16,000.

Despite the condemning response from Kenya, DF’s Martin Henriksen said he wouldn’t give up his plan.

MAS BRAWL BETWEEN ERETRIAN AND ETHIOPIAN MIGRANTS…….IN CALAIS FRANCE

Published: 22 Oct 2014 09:09 GMT+02:00

Police in Calais said on Tuesday they sealed off an industrial district of the French port city after a fight between illegal migrants, in the latest incident to hit the northern gateway
to Britain.

The port has for months been struggling to stem a tide of migrants trying to slip onto trucks and cross the Channel to Britain, despite a slew of recent measures to tighten security.

In the latest incident on Tuesday, police closed off an industrial area of the city where migrants from Ethiopia and Eritrea were battling each other with sticks, after firing tear gas to try and break up the fight.

The district in the Dunes industrial zone has recently become a refuge for migrants pouring into the port city, and unrest flared up Monday evening and continued into Tuesday.

One migrant was detained and dozens were slightly injured during the night, police said.

SPOKESMAN FOR PAKISTAN TALIBAN SACKED FOR ALLEGIANCE PLEDGE TO ISLAMIC STATE…….

 

Major rift in the tali-tard rank and file.

Pakistan Taliban sack spokesman Shahidullah Shahid for IS vow

A picture made available on 15 October 2014 shows Shahidullah Shahid (C), the spokesman of Pakistani Taliban speaking to journalists at an undisclosed location near the Pak-Afghan border, 21 February 2014.Shahidullah Shahid (centre) had been the TTP’s main media contact

Pakistan Taliban spokesman Shahidullah Shahid has been sacked after pledging allegiance to Islamic State (IS).

The militants said he had been replaced but did not name his successor. A statement reiterated support for Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar.

It emerged last week that Shahidullah Shahid and five other Pakistan Taliban (TTP) commanders had defected to IS which controls parts of Iraq and Syria.

Analysts say IS poses a challenge to Taliban, al-Qaeda and other militants.

The TTP statement said Shahidullah Shahid was a nom de guerre and its former spokesman’s real name was Sheikh Maqbool.

BBC Urdu’s Haroon Rashid in Islamabad says these are further signs of splits within the Pakistani Taliban, which is already divided.

Last week, a senior TTP leader confirmed to our correspondent that Shahidullah Shahid and the five other senior figures had left because they had doubts about the leadership of Mullah Mohammad Omar.

NORDIC SOMALI COMMUNITIES BLAME LACK OF ‘COMMUNITY PROJECTS’ FOR JIHAD ENTHUSIASTS HEADING FOR SYRIA, NOT BASIC ISLAM……

 

Nah, it’s just jihad, commanded by Mohamed that’s to blame.

NORDIC JIHAD

Surah 9 is one of the last entries of the koran.

saudi flag

And of course they refuse to deal with the main issue at hand, Islam calls for the faithful to fight the non-believer, wherever they reside, till the end of time. When looking at the entirety of the koran, hadiths and sira, they all point to the violent nature of Islam, and its open ended call for violence against the non-Muslim till they are either converted to the mohammedan creed, subjugated as 3rd class people and paying the jizya poll tax, or dead.

Surah 9.5 And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush.

So they do admit that mosques are being used as staging grounds for jihad, and that by default, authorities are correct in monitoring them for subversive activity.=>

So far the community leaders haven’t come up with any easy answers. They say they need help tracking down the jihadi head hunters and establishing strong links with local authorities will be an important part of how they operate.

“When we detect extremists spreading the word in our mosques, we can report them to the authorities,” Farah explained.

Nordic Somali communities join forces to fight extremist recruitment

Somali organisations from across the region gathered in Finland Tuesday to establish a cooperative aimed at heading off recruitment of their youngsters to join extremist groups. The community leaders expressed concerns about the growing radicalisation of Somali youth.

Reports of Finnish youngsters being recruited to join extremist Islamist groups and leaving to fight in conflicts abroad have shocked the local Somali community.

It turns out that the problem spans the Nordic countries. A few dozen young people are known to have left Finland to engage in battle abroad,  but countries like Sweden and Norway have also been troubled by youngsters egnaging in war tourism.

In an article published in September, the US news service CNN conducted a study of 25 countries where local Muslims had gone to fight in Syria. It found that Finland had the highest percentage of jihadis abroad, mainly because of its small Muslim population.

Other Nordic countries also posted similar numbers of Muslims traveling overseas to fight. Finland’s 30+, was matched by the same number in Sweden, but was bested in Norway (40 – 50) and Denmark (100).

Finding alternatives for Somali youth

The Nordic support group established at a meeting in Espoo Tuesday aims to nip the trend in the bud by encouraging young Somalis to engage in alternative activities such as community projects. However elders say they know they’re facing an uphill battle in some cases.

“In the United States for example, it’s easier to integrate and feel American. But here in the Nordics you will always be just a little immigrant,” said Mohamed Farah of the Swedish Somali Association.

Abdulrahman Abdi Rage of Finland’s Somali Association said the groups are looking to find common ground on how to head of the problem.

“When we discuss and put our heads together we will come to some kind of understanding on how to deal with this issue. At least that’s what we hope,” he added.

More here.

NOTE: Notice that the meme of the failure of ”integration” being the focus of the article, and not on what the jihadis themselves have said on what is motivating them, that being, Islam 101 (the basic fundamentals of Islam). Muslim youths from Finland are not travelling to Syria/Iraq due to exclusion from society, but out of a sense of duty to the calls of the koran, for jihad against the non-believer.

KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) – 

Islamic authorities in Malaysia are conducting a probe into a controversial “dog patting” event aimed at removing the stigma regarding men’s best friend in the multi-ethnic Muslim-majority country.

The event, titled “I want to touch a dog” and held in a park on the outskirts of the capital Kuala Lumpur Sunday, encouraged patting dogs — seen as unclean in Islam — and reportedly drew hundreds of Muslims, raising the ire of religious leaders.

Canadian Soldier Dies Following Car Attack

One of two Canadian soldiers hit by a car in a city near Montreal has died and authorities are examining whether the driver’s links to radical Islam had spurred the attack. Neighbors said he was a recent convert.

Quebec provincial police spokeswoman Genevieve Bruno confirmed Tuesday one of the two soldiers died from his injuries. The other soldier’s injuries were less serious.

The soldier’s name was not released at the request of the family.

The suspect, Martin Couture Rouleau, 25, was shot by police following a car chase and later died.

An official familiar with the case confirmed the suspect’s name and that he had fallen under the influence of radical Islam. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the case.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokesman David Falls said Monday the suspect “was known to Federal authorities” and “authorities were concerned that he had become radicalized.”

Police declined to provide further details, citing the ongoing investigation.

FINNISH STATE BROADCASTER YLE (NEWS) MAILED HOMO-EROTIC STAMPED LETTERS TO TEST RUSSIAN POST OFFICE…….

 

How brave.

Yle tested the Russian Post Office when the stamps were first issued, sending packages to Yle correspondents in Russia. Three of those parcels made it through and reached their recipients, with one still somewhere in the Russian postal system.

Yle is the (publicly funded) Finnish state broadcaster and news service. If they really want to do something daring, YLE should make letters with pictures of mohamed on them and mail them to Saudi Arabia.

Russian politician demands ban on Tom of Finland-stamped mail

Saint Petersburg councillor Vitaly Milonov has demanded a ban on mail sent from Finland using the Finnish Post Office’s recently-issued Tom of Finland stamps. The anti-gay councillor also asked that Finns refrain from using the stamps on letters to Russia.

Image: Itella Posti Oy

A Russian politician who introduced one of the country’s first statutes banning ’gay propaganda’ has called on the Russian Post office to stop delivering mail that featureshomo-erotic Finnish stamps.

The stamps feature muscular, masculine, homo-erotic artwork by Touko Laaksonen, who worked under the Tom of Finland name. They include a man in military uniform with a naked model between his legs, and a pert male posterior with a male admirer.

Saint Petersburg politician Vitaly Milonov says the stamps contravene Russia’s law against gay propaganda, a national anti-gay statute that followed local regulations Milonov had introduced in his city.

Now Milonov has also asked Finns to refrain from using the stamps on mail bound for Russia. Yle tested the Russian Post Office when the stamps were first issued, sending packages to Yle correspondents in Russia. Three of those parcels made it through and reached their recipients, with one still somewhere in the Russian postal system.

The new stamps have been a popular design. There were queues when they first went on sale, with the range quickly becoming the biggest-selling stamp in Finnish history.

Milonov represents President Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party, and has gained a national profile after several deeply conservative proposals including banning both abortion and the teaching of Darwin’s theory of evolution.

In recent months he has been most active in criticising the Ukrainian government and supporting the independence of eastern Ukraine under the leadership of pro-Russian separatists.

QATAR AWARENESS CAMPAIGN DAY 18: FIFA IN BED WITH TERRORIST SUPPORTING QATAR…….

Qatar_Awareness_Campaign_LogoJoseph ‘Sepp’ Blatter
Fédération Internationale de Football Association

FIFA-Strasse 20,
P.O. Box 8044 Zurich, Switzerland

Dear Mr. Blatter:

This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition. The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar. FIFA is preparing to host the 2022 World Cup in Qatar’s capital city of Doha, and this decision has been anything but uncontroversial.

In September 2013, the UK’s The Guardian ran a feature story on Qatar’s “World Cup slaves.” These slaves, foreign workers who are flown in from countries such as Nepal, India, and Bangladesh, are deprived of basic human rights, including:

  • Access to clean water and food, and lack of decent and sanitary habitations.
  • The right to leave Qatar, as their passports are seized upon entry and they are denied exit visas.
  • Just and timely compensation, as many of these workers are routinely denied pay for months at a time.

And yet, one aspect of the Qatari-FIFA World Cup scandal has been overlooked. The architectural firm contracted to build the stadiums is Albert Speer & Partner. Mr. Speer is the son of Albert Speer, the infamous Nazi who revolutionized slave labor in the Third Reich for his friend and Führer, Adolf Hitler. Albert Speer was the chief organizer and executive of the Nazi war machine, in terms of munitions production. He enslaved conquered “racial minorities” across Europe, including Slavs and Jews, in war factories.

Is it not tragically ironic that his son is using slave labor to build FIFA’s soccer stadiums?

Furthermore, Qatar Airways is in a partnership F.C. Barcelona, one of the world’s most recognizable football clubs. Qatar and soccer have a complicated relationship. In April, it was reported that in 2011, a Qatari, Mr. Mohammed bin Hamman, had deposited £2 million into the bank account of the daughter of a Brazilian FIFA official. The money is believed to have been transferred into the 10 year old’s account by the then-president of F.C. Barcelona, Sandro Rosell. This amounted to a bribe, and Qatar was subsequently awarded the 2022 World Cup.

Here are some pertinent additional facts regarding FIFA, Qatar, terrorism, and the 2022 World Cup:

  • In 2011, Mohamed bin Hamman was banned from FIFA after the Ethics Committee ruled him responsible for cash gifts totaling, $1 million “to officials from associations belonging to the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) at a meeting in Trinidad on May 10.”
  • A previous head of the Qatar Football Association, Abdul Rahman al-Nuaimi, was accused of supporting terrorism through al Qaeda in Iraq, Somalia, Yemen and other countries. He was designated by the U.S. Treasury a “global terrorist.”
  • Prominent FIFA officials have openly questioned the decision to hold the World Cup 2022 in Doha. Citing scorching temperatures in Doha during the summer, FIFA Executive Committee member Theo Zwanziger stated, “I personally think that in the end the 2022 World Cup will not take place in Qatar. Medics say that they cannot accept responsibility with a World Cup taking place under these conditions.”

Additionally, Qatar it is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell, and profits from operating a virtual slave state. A recent press report explained how a Qatari citizen was the moneyman for an Al Qaeda group in Syria. His alias? Umar al-Qatari.

The QAC Coalition and petitioners ask that you consider the attached sourced report on Qatar’s activities. The links cited are vetted and credible sources. We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.

After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert due influence on the Qatari government to cease any type of involvement in all forms of Islamic terrorism, slavery, and drug trafficking!

Sincerely,

U.S. HOMOSEXUAL INDUSTRY OF TYRANNICAL ENFORCED CONFORMITY: MARRY HOMO-COUPLES OR GO TO JAIL…….

Jack boots spotted.

This is not about homosexuality, it’s all about breaking down the civil society with iron handed enforced ”equality” which rips individual choice from the citizen at the behest of whatever influential group that happens to curry governmental favor at the time.

Literally ”beyond the pale”. Government coercion against a person’s right hold opposing views and beliefs. I remember reading somewhere that centuries ago, people fled Europe to the Americas to escape persecution for their beliefs. How is this situation any different?

But I love all these new freedoms we’re getting. We now have the freedom to do what various pressure groups want or go to jail. I hope we don’t get too many more new freedoms or we’ll run out of jail cells.

Gov to Ministers: Marry Gays or Go to Jail

SRX_HITCHING_POST_t620

…and the distinction between gay rights and religious persecution just vanished. It begins with equality and ends with everyone losing their freedom.

Officials in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, are threatening an elderly couple who run a wedding chapel with jail time unless they perform wedding ceremonies for gay couples.

Donald Knapp and his wife, Evelyn, both ordained ministers who run Hitching Post Wedding Chapel, have declined to host gay weddings based on their religious beliefs. The city is basing its claims on their “non-discrimination” statute now that the courts have cleared the way for same sex marriages in the state.

If a wedding chapel and its minister are a “public accommodation”, then the First Amendment just went up in smoke, which it was always bound to. Too many “conservatives” have the fanciful notion that the left can be compromised or that it will stop at some apparent to them “reasonable point”.

MAURITANIA, WHERE FLEEING ISLAMIC SLAVERY IS A CRIME…….

 

This is what Mohamed bequeathed to his followers and to all generations after him.

mo tunic 29.12.2011

So you tell me, how is this any different from what’s taking place in Syria and in Iraq, with the Islamic State deeming (correctly) that slavery is entirely an Islamic right?

“The majority of women in slavery have children outside of marriage, partly because they are so often raped by their masters, or encouraged into sexual relationships from a young age but denied the right to marry formally,” Mathewson wrote. “This charge against a young girl sends a clear message to other women in slavery: If you leave your slave-owner with your children and try to seek justice, not only will we not assist and protect you, we will also charge you for the ‘crime’ of extramarital sex.”

The country where it’s apparently a crime to be rescued from slavery

By John D. Sutter, CNN
October 21, 2014 — Updated 0102 GMT (0902 HKT)

CNN) — Imagine being rescued from modern slavery, only to be charged with a crime.

That’s the apparent reality in Mauritania, the country with the world’s highest incidence of modern slavery. Located in West Africa, on the edge of the Sahara Desert, an estimated 4% to 20% of people there remain enslaved. It was the last country in the world to abolish the practice — in 1981. And it only criminalized owning humans in 2007.

I visited the country in 2011 to produce a documentary on modern slavery for CNN. I’ve witnessed these horrors first hand — met the victims of slavery and the slave owners.

But this latest news still surprised me.

Mbeirika Mint M’bareck, a 15-year-old girl, was rescued from slavery only to be subsequently charged with having sex outside of marriage, according to a letter activists drafted on her behalf. (It is unclear who fathered the child). That crime is potentially punishable by death by stoning, according to an expert I spoke with. The activists planned to send the letter to the country’s ministry of justice on Monday.

“We are shocked and appalled that the prosecuting authorities would bring the charge of (adultery), as this young girl is evidently the victim of the heinous crime of slavery as well as statutory rape,” according to the letter, which the activists provided.

The 15-year-old ex-slave was “heavily pregnant” during a court hearing, which apparently led to the charge of sex outside of marriage. Her alleged captor, meanwhile, was charged simply with “exploitation of a minor (without financial compensation),” as opposed to the charge of slavery, which carries a longer prison term.

ISRAELI FORMER NEWS OUTLET HAARETZ SMEARS AMERICAN TERRORISM EXPERT WITH POLITICAL HIT JOB……..

 

It’s exactly what we’ve come to expect from the post-Zionist Leftist paper (Marxist screed rag) with hardly any domestic subscribers.

Haaretz Smears American Terrorism Expert with Political Hit Job

While Haaretz attacked Emerson for being a Republican who is friends with Sheldon Adelson, the sources it relied upon did not actually refute that the U.S. pulled the plug on assisting Israel locate a kidnapped soldier.

Steve Emerson, author, journalist and terrorism expert.

To be sure, the information provided by Steve Emerson regarding a decision by the U.S. government to stand down on an ongoing attempt to provide the Israeli government with critical information regarding an Israeli soldier whom Hamas claimed it had in its custody during this summer’s conflict was shocking.

But perhaps just as shocking – or it should be – was a politically driven smear by Haaretz of Emerson’s credentials and his alleged political friendships, suggesting that was all that was driving Emerson’s claims.

Although the Haaretz article claimed Emerson was wrong about the facts that he alleged, its portrayal of the U.S. government’s refutation was misleading and its focus ugly – that Emerson, a “right-wing Republican” is a “personal friend” of Sheldon Adelson, who is a “formidable patron of the Republican party and Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu.”

The Haaretz article stated as fact that Emerson “is a controversial figure in the United States” about whom “members of the Muslim community and the left in the United States” (no names, no numbers, just members) “say he is islamophobic.”

One expects such breathless cospiratorialism from bloggers unrestrained by journalistic standards, but the Israeli newspaper which holds itself out as the paper of the cognoscenti? Also, the issue at hand had nothing to do with whether or not Hamas claimed to kidnap at least some body parts of the Israeli soldier, so why is any alleged “Islamophobia” relevant? It is clear that these nasty slams were simply intended to inform Haaretz’s left wing audience that Emerson is the kind of person they all despise.
