Hamas trained for an
aerial attack in Malaysia

YNet News [Israel], by Yoav Zitun

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/30/2014 1:24:32 PM

Hamas sent its elite forces to train in Malaysia in preparation for an attack from the air, a Nukba (the chosen ones in Arabic) cell commander admitted under interrogation. The plan was to execute an attack on one of the towns near the Gaza border; according to the suspect, who was arrested during Operation Protective Edge, the preparations for the mission were in their advances stages. (Snip) The suspect, who served as the commander of a cell in Hamas´ elite forces, was recruited into the Gaza-based organization in 2010. He trained together with 10 other terrorists who he had not previously known – a compartmentalization method

Comments:
It makes you wonder how good Homeland Security as well as any anti-terrorist organization is at identify these animals. Why would they pick Malaysia for the training, unless there may have been help from the government. One other item. Who are paying for these forays (skills) in training and weapons outside Gaza City? How do you get the equipment needed through customs and back?

Does Israel require a hunting license prior to pass-shooting at terrorists on the wing?

I mean, this could be a lot of fun. You could shoot the terrorists outright, or just shred their para-gliders and watch them fall to the ground. . . probably screaming allahu akbar! all the way.

Al-Jazeera retracts story
doubting Foley, Sotloff beheadings
Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/7/2014 3:51:01 PM     Post Reply
Al-Jazeera has retracted a controversial story it published last week that questioned the authenticity of the videos that showed the execution of James Foley and Steven Sotloff, chalking it up to a “Hollywood” fabrication to provoke war. When accessing the link to the story, deemed by many online commentators as offensive and insensitive, an error page now appears, Al Arabiya News reported. Al-Jazeera English later posted a retraction on its website that called the post “inaccurate.” The story had suggested that Foley likely fabricated the execution video, despite confirmations from the U.S. government that the video was real,

Lawmakers divided on whether Obama

As Congress returns to Washington Monday after a monthlong break, lawmakers are divided on whether or not the president needs to come to Congress for a new authorization of force against Islamic State — also known as ISIS or ISIL — forces in Syria. Rep. Peter T. King, New York Republican, said Sunday it would benefit President Obama to get Congress onboard with strikes against the Islamic State but that he shouldn’t waste time doing so if he wants to take immediate action. “If that’s going to delay what he wants to do, he should go ahead and take action without waiting for Congress,” Mr. King said on

Islamic State: Common enemy of the Levant
Al Jazeera [Doha, Qatar], by Vartan Oskanian    Original Article

To try to see good news in Middle Eastern developments, one has to be an eternal optimist and one´s mind has to be wired for reverse logic. Consider the following: the situation in the Middle East is so unsustainably bad, that there cannot not be a change, and it cannot change to the better; or, the threat of the Islamic State group can even generate a positive outcome if it compels old antagonists to rally around a common cause. The Islamic State group poses such a massive threat to those in the Middle East and beyond, that other real or perceived threats - such as the Iranian nuclear arms issue, Bashar al-Assad's dictatorial rule,

If you’re ready for a new phone from Apple, you’re not alone. One couple is already camping out in front of the Fifth Avenue Apple store in order to be the first ones in line to buy the iPhone 6, which probably won’t come out for another two weeks. The company will reveal its latest devices Tuesday, September 9th in an event it has teased only by noting “wish we could say more” on their invitation. The day promises to be a watershed moment for the company; they are expected to announce a wearable “iWatch” device, as it is unofficially called, as well as new sizes of iPhone with major hardware upgrades.

Atlanta Hawks owner Bruce Levenson announced on Sunday that he would be selling his controlling interest in the team, after self-reporting a racist email he sent in 2012. NBA commissioner Adam Silver issued the following statement: Following Bruce Levenson notifying the league office this July of his August 2012 email, the NBA commenced an independent investigation regarding the circumstances of Mr. Levenson´s comments. Prior to the completion of the investigation, Mr. Levenson notified me last evening that he had decided to sell his controlling interest in the Atlanta Hawks. As Mr. Levenson acknowledged,

Boston bombers’ mosque tied to ISIS

When it was revealed that the Boston Marathon bombers attended a Cambridge, Mass., mosque, its leaders were quick to disavow their actions. Elder brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s ideology was not their own, the leaders of the Islamic Society mosque claimed. In fact, he was admonished for an extremist outburst he made during one sermon. So, one crackpot in a congregation. Who can blame the mosque? But what about eight — including a prominent member of ISIS? As it turns out, worshippers at the Islamic Society have included:

Two weeks after Operation Protective Edge ended with an Egyptian-brokered cease-fire, Hamas is already preparing itself for the next round of fighting with Israel, a a senior diplomatic source said Sunday. “They are already preparing themselves,” the source said, adding that Israel has detected Hamas smuggling weapons into the Gaza Strip. Likewise, he said, Hamas is working to restore the terror tunnels in Gaza, as well as restore Gaza´s rocket manufacturing capabilities. The source said that Gaza´s rocket manufacturing capacity is currently 40% of what it was at the outset of Operation Protective Edge, and that the Palestinians were continuing to build rockets.

Egypt Orders Arrest of Men
Over ´Gay Marriage´ Video
Reuters, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/7/2014 4:07:19 AM     Post Reply
Cairo - Egyptian authorities have ordered the arrest of nine men who appeared in a video purporting to show the country´s first gay marriage, accusing them of inciting debauchery and undermining public morals. Gay marriage is not legal in Egypt, a conservative Muslim society where the footage, which went viral on social media sites last month, has caused a stir online. Though homosexuality is not specifically outlawed in Egypt, discrimination is rife. Arrests of gay men occasionally make headlines and the accused are typically charged with debauchery, immorality or blasphemy, drawing criticism from rights groups.

Tbilisi - The United States said it launched four air strikes against Islamic State militants threatening the Haditha Dam in western Iraq on Sunday, broadening its campaign against the fighters. It was Washington´s first offensive into Iraq´s western Anbar province since it started air strikes on Islamic State forces in the north of the country in August. "At the request of the Government of Iraq, the U.S. military today conducted coordinated air strikes against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorists in the vicinity of the Haditha Dam in Anbar province," said Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby.

Llopango, El Salvador — Marvin Gonzalez waves to shopkeepers as he enjoys a morning walk through the sunny, working-class resort of Ilopango. His cellphone rings nonstop with residents seeking his support for anything from dealing with a drunk who won´t pay his bar bill to reporting an attempted rape. Gonzalez is not a police chief, nor a politician. The 31-year-old plug of a man is the local leader of the Mara Salvatrucha, a gang formed by Central American immigrants in California and now designated by the U.S. as a transnational criminal organization. But in Ilopango and communities across El Salvador,

Salt Lake City - The Mormon church and four other religious organizations are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene and settle once and for all the question of whether states can outlaw gay marriage. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in a statement Friday, said it joined a friend-of-the-court brief asking the high court to hear Utah´s marriage case. Also taking part in the filing were The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the National Association of Evangelicals, the Ethics & Religious Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention and the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee on Friday said new allegations that U.S. commandos were ordered to “stand down” during the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, aren’t supported by findings from House and Senate investigators. Five commandos who survived the Benghazi attack, which claimed the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, made the allegation in a new book, accusing the CIA station chief of delaying a rescue mission. Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) said lawmakers never came across evidence indicating the station chief had told his team to “stand down” and abort a

"Despite that Iraqi and U.S sources confirmed the killing of Abu Bajr al-Baghdadi, but the White House did not confirmed it yet", AFP reported. Three senior members of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) - including an aide to its leader - were killed in a U.S. airstrike in Iraq, a senior Iraqi security official told NBC News Thursday.

Immigrant-rights groups reacted furiously Saturday after the White House made clear President Obama will not take unilateral action on immigration before November’s elections, nodding at the political realities of the issue as he punted on the key policy questions. With a number of key Senate races in GOP-leaning states, Democrats had feared that action now would anger voters and cost them control of the upper chamber, and had privately begged the White House to hold off on any move to halt deportations. But immigration activists said it’s the latest in a series of moves by Mr. Obama to shove their

Are you tired of being lied to yet? My guess is no... because Americans seem to have developed an infinite capacity for patience with a federal government that is increasingly mettlesome, mendacious and menacing.[SNIP] This last Friday night, an interview was aired which should convince American citizens once and for all that their government is not telling the truth about what happened in Libya two years ago. That’s been obvious to many of us for months, but despite the naming of a select committee by the U.S. House of Representatives to investigate what could have happened, what should have happened,

According to Mr. Sanders, taxing the top .25 percent of wealthiest Americans is the fairest

There is reportedly better than a 50-50 chance that former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will run for president. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Bush´s inner circle of "advisers have been quietly spreading the word that they should avoid committing to other possible presidential candidates until he decides on his own course after the November election" and have been actively dismissing "speculation that the former Florida governor has ruled out a 2016 run."

Vice President Joe Biden gives President Obama´s weekly remarks: Ladies and gentlemen, this is Joe Biden, I’m filling in for President Obama, while he addresses the NATO summit in Wales. When the President and I took office in January of 2009, this nation was in the midst of the greatest economic crisis since the great depression. Our economy had plummeted at a rate of 8% in a single quarter — part of the fastest economic decline any time in the last half century. Millions of families were falling underwater on their homes and threatened with foreclosure. The iconic American automobile industry was under siege.
