  • 162,000 refugees came to Sweden - 494 got jobs (Year-Long Study: 99.7% on Benefits)

    Only a fraction of the many asylum seekers who came to Sweden last year have got jobs, new figures show. Only a microscopic part of the 162,000 refugees who last year sought asylum in Sweden have so far got jobs. In fact only 494 of the thousands of asylum seekers in the labor market, writes SVT. This corresponds to 0.3 per cent of all asylum seekers that came last year. A valid ID is all that is requires, according to the television channel, for a person who has come to Sweden to be able to work while he is waiting...

    Thirty rare Alpine goats, that were stolen by Arabs from a Jewish-owned farm near Modi'in three weeks ago, were recovered before dawn Thursday in a joint operation mounted by Southern District Border Police's Central Unit, accompanied by warriors from the Engineering Corps' 601st Battalion, and the farm's owners. HaShomer HaChadash, a nonprofit that helps protect Jewish farms from theft and vandalism, announced Thursday that the goats -- which had been taken from the Ofaimme Farm -- were recovered in a raid "deep inside the territories." ...
  • Army To Allow Hollowpoint Ammo For New Pistol

    In a surprising break from decades of compliance with a 19th century treaty, the Army has said it will likely allow its troops to use hollow-point and frangible ammunition in its handguns, arguing the rounds are commonly used by law enforcement and for self defense and pose less of a risk to bystanders than fully jacketed rounds. The previous ban on the use of hollowpoint ammunition for military rifles and handguns stems from the first Hague Convention of 1899, where ammunition that “expand or flatten easily” was banned for use in war. Though the United States never ratified that part...

    Terrorist group Isis may be considering using Ebola as a suicide bio-weapon against the West, according to a military expert. The virus is transmitted by direct contact with an infected person who is showing the symptoms – and it wouldn't be difficult for fanatics to contract it then travel to countries they want to wreak havoc in, according to a military expert. Capt. Al Shimkus, Ret., a Professor of National Security Affairs at the U.S. Naval War College, said that the strategy is entirely plausible. He told Forbes: 'The individual exposed to the Ebola Virus would be the carrier. In...

Under the heading “Area of activity: The planet Earth,” the ad seeks jihadists to carry out suicide attacks.

  • The Great Koran Controversy: Will Muslim Martyrs Get 72 Raisins Instead of Virgins

    11/21/2010 3:32:32 PM PST · by JoeProBono · 36 replies · 2+ views
    According to an Islam tradition, Muslim martyrs will go to paradise and marry 72 black-eyed virgins. But some Koran scholars point to a less sexy paradise. While beautifully written, Islamic texts are often obscure. The Arabic language was born as a written language with the Koran, and growing evidence suggests that many of the words were Syriac or Aramaic. Specifically, the Koran says martyrs going to heaven will get “hur,” and the word was taken by early commentators to mean “virgins,” hence those 72 concubines. But in Aramaic, hur actually meant “white” and was commonly used to specifically mean “white...

The militant group's operations chief Usama al Kini was thought to be responsible for high-profile terrorist attacks. They included the Marriott hotel bombing in Islamabad that killed 55 people in September and an unsuccessful attempt to kill Benazir Bhutto. The former Pakistani Prime Minister was later assassinated in a separate attack. "These deaths are a significant near-term degradation of al Qaeda's leadership," the unnamed official...

Sergeant Locke died fighting a barbaric enemy that seeks not just to take Afghanistan back to the dark ages but to use it as a base from which to destroy us. Worryingly, the death of two Australian soldiers in three weeks is not just a tragic coincidence. Things are not going well in the poorly named war on terror.

    Newsmax Insider Report (email) | September 9, 2007 | Newsmax
    Is there any method to bin Laden’s madness? After years of not being seen in public, he is apparently surfacing on the eve of the 6th anniversary of his Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Intelligence agencies have stated that Islamic terrorists like to mark anniversaries with attacks. As religious fundamentalists, they may even be motivated by Islam’s interest in numbers or numerology. While the number 6 has little religious significance for Islamics, this Sept. 11 will mark an important number: 72. That’s 72 months since the 9/11 strikes of 2001. Could there be significance in that number? We did some research...

There is a small, extremely low-profile Christian community. According to the International Religious Freedom Report 2006 issued by the US State Department last Friday, proselytizing for any religion except Islam is prohibited in Puntland and Somaliland and effectively blocked by informal social consensus elsewhere in the country.

    To Muslims the Koran is the very word of God, who spoke through the Angel Gabriel to Muhammad: "This book is not to be doubted," the Koran declares unequivocally at its beginning. Scholars and writers in Islamic countries who have ignored that warning have sometimes found themselves the target of death threats and violence, sending a chill through universities around the world. Yet despite the fear, a handful of experts have been quietly investigating the origins of the Koran, offering radically new theories about the text's meaning and the rise of Islam.

OK, that assessment may seem callous - but why is it so difficult to believe? Longtime critics of the U.S. prison facility on Gitmo - which is to say, reflexive foes of the War on Terror - claim the suicides were the inevitable result of "despair," due to prolonged detention under harsh conditions. But other factors are at work here. As Rear Adm. Harry Harris, the Gitmo commander, noted, we're talking about people who "have...

    It's one of today's most compelling news stories, yet it's all but ignored by most of the international media. I'm talking about the growing persecution of Christian minorities in the Islamic world. It briefly made headlines last month when machete-armed Egyptian fanatics attacked worshipers in three Coptic churches in Alexandria and murdered one aged man at prayer. Then of course, there was March - when an Afghan man escaped a death sentence for the "crime" of converting to Christianity. But how many people heard about the recent arrest and jailing in Saudi Arabia of a group of Filipino guest workers...

    I watched only part of President Bush's State of the Union address. I just couldn't bring myself to watch the whole speech. I soon discovered that I wasn't alone. Since then, I had the opportunity to talk to a number of academic acquaintances in the Middle East. I was interested in getting a firsthand Arab response to the turmoil taking place between the Europeans and Muslims, but I also took the opportunity to get some feedback on Bush's speech. To my surprise, none of them heard the address. When I told one that Bush had promised to put in place...

    On July 15, I appeared on MSNBC's "Connected" program to discuss the 7/7 London attacks (you can see video of the segment on the linked page). One of my fellow guests was Pierre Rehov, a French filmmaker who has filmed six documentaries on the intifada by going undercover in the Palestinian areas. Pierre's upcoming film, "Suicide Killers," is based on interviews that he conducted with the families of suicide bombers and would-be bombers in an attempt to find out why they do it. Pierre agreed to my request for a Q&A interview here about his work on the new film....

    It was about midday when a young Palestinian woman from the refugee camp of Jabalya in Gaza approached an Israeli checkpoint clutching a special permit to visit a doctor on the other side of the border.The girl had big, brown eyes and her black hair was tied in a ponytail, but it was the strangeness of her gait that attracted the attention of the security officials at the Erez crossing, the main transit point between Israel and the Gaza Strip. When a soldier asked her to remove her long, dark cloak, she turned to face him. All her movements were...

    In Islam, lying or omissions for the 'greater good,' according to a strict or radical Islam/Islamist philosophy is not only acceptable, it is holy and blessed work. It is called al-Takeyya (or al-Taqiyya) and is a strategy outlined in the Hadiths and supported by various interpretations of some of the Suras in the Koran. We have just seen it in action and most people never even caught the whiff of mental ether the Islamists were pouring into the airways of the already comatose and choking non-Islamist world. Al-Takeyya is a policy whereby a Muslim may lie, deceive or omit critical...
