    Israelis are not happy with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. And they shouldn’t be.The headline at Israel National News reads: “Majority of Israelis Think Israel Didn't Win Gaza Operation” Journalist Ari Yashar writes: Poll: 59% say op. not a success, as Netanyahu's approval rating nose-dives further to a paltry 32%; majority oppose ceasefire.  snip Clearly the disappointment is not directed at the IDF, which 83% of the public said it was satisfied with - instead Israelis apparently are severely dissatisfied with the political echelon, and Netanyahu at its head.  (snip) Criticism has been pouring in from all corners over Netanyahu's apparent...

    A new English-language Al Qaeda magazine features a how-to article on making car bombs and suggests terror targets in the United States, including casinos in Las Vegas, oil tankers and military colleges, and implies that an attack is imminent. The online publication, called Palestine-Betrayal of the Guilty Conscience Al-Malahem and put out by the media arm of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, calls for Muslims around the world to follow the recipe provided to set off car bombs in crowded venues. It includes a timeline of "selected jihadi operations" that the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI),...

    Obama became president on January 20, 2009, the war in Iraq was essentially won. The al Qaeda-backed insurgency was reduced to smoldering embers. George W. Bushs surge had succeeded. Safely behind bars at the time was Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, an al Qaeda-linked point man who was imprisoned at Camp Bucca in Iraq, after being captured by U.S. forces in 2005. However, the Obama administration decided to shut down the Bucca prison camp and hand over its prisoners to the Iraqi government, including Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, in 2009. The Iraqi government later released him. Al Baghadi boasted to the...

    Weekly Standard ^ | 08/26/2014 | THOMAS JOSCELYN
    Earlier today, the news broke that Peter Theo Curtis, an American who had been held hostage in Syria since 2012, has been released by his captors. Coming just days after another American hostage, James Foley, was brutally beheaded by the Islamic State, Curtiss freedom brings a sense of relief. The details of Curtiss captivity and release reveal much about how al Qaeda is operating nearly thirteen years after the 9/11 attacks. It is not an accident that Curtiss fate differed from Foleys. Curtis was held by Jabhat al Nusrah, which is al Qaedas official branch in Syria. Al Nusrahs leaders...

    Understanding Islamic Extremists, Convert or DieJust who are these terrible religious fanatics? They are known as ISIS (the Islamic State of Syria) or ISIL (the Islamic State of Levant) and their objective is to establish a world-wide Caliphate (Kingdom of Islam) and subjugate or destroy all other states. Recently, their leader Amirul-Muminin Abu Bakr al-Qurashi al-Baghdadi issued a message to the Mujahideen (warriors for Islam) and the Muslim Ummah (people of Islam) in the month of Ramadan that is a call for all true believers to emigrate to all non-Muslim countries of the world, especially western democracies and when the...

    Don't believe everything you read in the media: The moderate rebels of Syria are not finished. They have gained ground in different parts of the country and have broken publicly with both the al Qaeda affiliate operating there and the jihadists of the Islamic State. Meanwhile, President Bashar al-Assad's regime is showing new signs of weakness. The death of moderate armed opposition elements has been greatly exaggerated. These groups -- whom I define as fighters who are not seeking to impose an Islamic state, but rather leaving that to a popular decision after the war ends -- have recently gained...

    The White House said over the weekend it was ready to "take action" against any threat to America as it indicated serious consideration of U.S. military strikes against the Islamic State (IS, formerly called ISIS) in Syria, AFP reports. The Pentagon has warned of the dangers of IS and said operations against it in Syria may be needed, after weeks of air strikes have slowed the advance of the Sunni group in Iraq. The White House also said late Friday that air strikes in Syria may be necessary, as deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes agreed that "any strategy to...

"He said we have to contain ISIS. We don't have to contain ISIS. We have to defeat ISIS, and we have to do whatever is necessary," the Republican lawmaker said on Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "Failures of policies have consequences, and we're paying [for] those consequences in enormous cost of human blood. It's a debacle, and he still doesn't get it."

    Before bloodthirsty ISIS militants beheaded James Wright Foley in a gruesome video posted online, the terror thugs demanded a $100 million ransom for the journalists safe return, a report said. The United States refused to pay, according to The New York Times. It was not clear when the terrorist group made its ransom demand for Foley, who was kidnapped in Syria in 2012, nor is it clear why the US refused, but government sources told the paper that paying such ransoms only helps terror groups. Several European countries, however, have handed large sums of money to terrorist groups to bring...

The $10 million price on his head, meanwhile, suggests that whoever released him from US custody four years ago may now be regretting it. Taken during his years as a detainee at the US-run Camp Bucca in southern Iraq, this is the only known photograph of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the new leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq and Syria. But while he may lack the photogenic qualities of his hero, Osama bin Laden, he is fast becoming the new poster-boy for the global jihadist movement....

    War On Terror: Having ignored Iraqi pleas for air strikes in ISIL's infancy, when the terrorists could have been decimated, the administration ignores the Kurdish peshmerga plea for the same American weapons that ISIL has. Watching the modest airstrikes on ISIL forces, we are reminded of Secretary of State John Kerry's promise that any military action in Syria would be "unbelievably small." As it turned out, it was also nonexistent, and the carnage continues in the country where ISIL formed and trained under our watchful and indifferent eyes. The targeted airstrikes ordered by President Obama last week near the Kurdish...

    The Qataris, and their ruling al-Thani family, are slavers, narcotics traffickers, and financiers of international terrorism. They also happen to be Americas closest ally under Obama. When analyzing the foreign policy interventions of the Obama administration with respect to the Middle East, it is hard to reconcile their respective approaches Libya (2011) and Iraq (2014). In 2011, Obama justified the military action to remove Muammar Gaddafi on the basis of anticipated genocide by the Gaddafi regime. Speaking at the National Defense University on March 28, 2011, Obama explained I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves...

The Tunisian Army is leading the crackdown and 14 Tunisian soldiers were killed last in that country while 20 more soldiers were wounded; the worst terrorist attack ever seen on Tunisias army. The attack which took place at two checkpoints near the Algerian border, was not atypical of Islamic attacks...

    To understand how bad this chummy photo is, you have to understand how bad Badruddin Haqqani is. The Haqqani Network has done the most damage to the US in Afghanistan and Badruddin Haqqani was one of three brothers running it.He was declared a terrorist and targeted by a drone strike. The Haqqani Network is something between Al Qaeda and the Taliban. Its Al Qaeda links have made it much deadlier than the ordinary Taliban and with Al Qaeda hardly present in Afghanistan even toward the end of Bush’s term, the Haqqani Network is the next best thing to it.It...

    France foiled an Islamist terrorist plot to target the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and even a nuclear power plant, it emerged on Wednesday, as the country unveiled new, tougher anti-terror rules. French police stumbled on the plans after decrypting coded messages between a 29-year-old Algerian butcher living in the Vaucluse, southern France, known only as Ali M, and one of the highest-ranking members in al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, or AQIM. According to Le Parisien newspaper, in April last year, the married father of two who went by the pseudonym Abu Jaji was asked by his AQIM contact, whose web...

    What will be left, post-stock market crash, post-Obama, post-Arab Spring? These are timely questions to consider. This conclusion is meant to say what could happen, not what is inevitable. Socially, the United States is a country that is divided as ever, with very little faith in government and its leaders. Due to a long and purposeful depression, a new generation will emerge that is out of touch with American values, does not understand nor support capitalism, and is comfortable with gangs entering popular culture and the lives of the former middle class. Politically, the establishment wings of both Democrat and...

    A victory beyond the wildest dreams of Osama bin Laden is within reach of fighters from ISIL, a group of which he would likely approve regardless of what current Al Qaeda leadership says about the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. And it's all Obama's fault. Iraqi troops battled to dislodge an al Qaeda splinter group from the city of Tikrit on Monday, reports the Hindustan Times, after its leader was declared caliph of a new Islamic state in lands seized this month across a swathe of Iraq and Syria. The caliphate claims worldwide authority over all Muslims, and...

    I said America was an Islamic country not a Muslim country. Pls study up on the difference b4 attacking me. Elibiary penned an op-ed stating that everyone should read Sayyid Qutb, a man widely seen as the founder of radical Islamic groups like al-Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood. Elibiary wrote, Id recommend everyone read Qutb, but read him with an eye to improving America not just to be jealous with malice in our hearts.

    *Actual Results May VaryEven as bumper sticker slogans go, it was a bit dubious from the start. Now it looks like it was actually the other way around.The claim seemed bogus from the moment the angry mob in Cairo chanted Obama! Obama! There are still a billion Osamas! right up through this months resurgence of al Qaeda in Iraq.And as far as GM goes, it appears that rumors of its survival may have been exaggerated as well. Despite life support efforts that included the removal of crushing debt from its books and infusions of billions in special future tax breaks,...
  • Isil Leader Al Baghdadi More Powerful Than Al Qaida Chief

    Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, the shadowy jihadist fighting in Iraq and Syria, and newly declared leader of a caliphate encompassing all Muslims, is increasingly seen as more powerful than Al Qaidas chief. SNIP In October 2005, American forces said they believed they had killed Abu Dua, one of Baghdadis known aliases, in a strike on the Iraq-Syria border. But that appears to have been incorrect, as he took the reins of what was then known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) in May 2010 after two of its chiefs were killed in a US-Iraqi raid.
