    Overview of main theater of combat in the East of Ukraine: in the morning continued the battle for Gorlovka. The militants left the village. Today the Group of terrorists has increased because additional convoy proceeded to Gorlovka engineering terrorists from Debalcevo. No accumulation of groups of fighters in the petrovske, where they pull together the forces of Snow and the Red beam. It means two possible options: either the strike preparation aside, either side of the Lisichansk city Gorlovka. Lisichansk pockets of resistance still remain terrorists and this cannot be ignored, even by the official MEDIA and information on the...

    (Translated by Roman Vlasov) ATO forces continued the active phase of offensive operation. In the night of July 23 the settlements of Kozhevnya and Krasnaya Zorya were liberated from illegal armed groups. Therefore the goal of taking under control the Check Point Marinovka has been fulfilled. Closer to lunch time the Ukrainian Armed forces also took under control Marinovka and Djakovo. So the first corridor which was formed by terrorists at the end of May (Kuybyshevo-Dmitrovka-Snezhnoye) is now completely controlled by Ukrainian armed forces. According to the so far unconfirmed information, the National Guard troops captured settlement Blagodarnoye, therefore blocking...

    With the midterm elections fast approaching, the panic over Iraq seems more intense than ever. That country, the thinking goes, is a hopeless mess, and there could be a precipitous American withdrawal, especially if the Democrats win. But doing so would leave the silent majority of Iraqis hostage to the most vicious extremists, abandoning those Iraqi leaders who have championed liberal democratic values. One of them is Mithal al-Alusi, a 53-year-old Sunni Arab who won a seat in parliament last December after having served as director general of the National Commission on de-Baathification. Mr. al-Alusi ran on a platform of...

Soon the screen displays battle flags and AK-47 rifles, plus palm-lined beaches to conjure up a martyr's paradise.

    FBI Tracking 100 Suspected Islamic Extremists in US Military Dozen Cases Considered 'Serious' (Newser) – The FBI has tracked some 100 people within the US military suspected of being Islamic extremists, with a dozen of the cases considered "serious," reports NPR. These involve individuals who appear to have demonstrated a "strong intent" to attack military targets. The "insider threats" include both active and reserve military members, but also people who have access to military facilities such as contractors or relatives with special ID cards. The information was revealed in a closed-door House-Senate committee hearing late last year, according to three...

    The U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee is weighing fresh concerns about the sweeping nature of domestic spying using one controversial section of the Patriot Act. This particular part of that law is notable because it has been divisive for years — and because during those years President Obama has quietly moved from being a Senator skeptical of the provisions to being an enthusiastic spy chief whose Administration embraces them. Last Tuesday the committee met to consider the worries of some members, mostly Democrats, who say the Justice Department has drafted a breathtakingly broad interpretation of Section 215 of the Patriot Act....

He was an exemplary hostage, who “maintained his composure and survived…,” according to the anti-terrorism training materials. Yet Brig. Gen. James Dozier had been studied for a month by the leftist group before his kidnapping in December 1981.

    Today, on July 21, 2005, the Facts About Islam (FAI) website returned after being down for over six months. The FAI was originally founded under the name of "TE" (known as "AMS" by some) in November 2002 by Former ATC President Stalfos. During the rest of 2002 and the first few months of 2003, the TE received hundreds of visitors a day (and sometimes up to 2000 visitors a day). Since its very existence, the TE was faced with attacks and bannings. Yahoo Geocities, on which the TE was hosted on, had and still has a double standard when it...

  • The First Muslim Demonstration Against Terrorism

    The first Muslim anti-terror rally will be held this month in Washington D.C.! I heard this through the Michael Reagan Show tonight on KNUS 2. Although painfully late in world events, it was exciting news to hear. Unfortunately when I went to their web site http://www.freemuslim.org/sohof/theroots/index.htm my first reaction, again, was pessimism. The headline of their English translation is "Islam is the religion of peace, purity, acceptance and commitment." I know from ProphetofDoom.net that this is a false claim of Islam. Freemuslim.net is either very confused, or a false front for Islam. Renouncing terrorism means denying Islam's form of evangelism,...

    Spy Game By Marcin Mierzejewski 16 March 2005 Polish anti-terrorist squads apprehended an Iranian techno-spy at the Warsaw airport Feb. 17.

    CHICAGO, March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Anti-Terrorism and Aviation Protection Act," (H.B. 1098), passed out of the Illinois House of Representatives Human Services Committee today, a homeland security bill to prevent a terrorist from using a .50 caliber sniper rifle to shoot down a civilian airliner during landing or takeoff. Rep. Elaine Nekritz (D-57th) and Rep. Beth Coulson (R-17th), the two main sponsors, have launched a bi-partisan effort to keep the most deadly and powerful sniper rifles on the market out of the hands of terrorists to protect Illinois aviation and vulnerable industrial targets. .50 caliber sniper rifles were designed...

    Prime Minister Tony Blair won Parliament's support Friday for a new anti-terrorism law allowing the government to impose strict controls on 10 terror suspects — including an Islamic preacher accused of inspiring lead Sept. 11 hijacker Mohamed Atta — who have been granted bail. The House of Lords approved new powers to order house arrest and impose curfews and electronic tagging without trial on terror suspects after the government made concessions to end a bitter parliamentary deadlock just three days before similar legislation expired. The new law means the 10 suspects will remain free on bail but are subject to...

    Controversial proposals for a new anti-terrorism law, which would allow Britain to place suspects under house arrest without the need for a trial, have cleared an important parliamentary hurdle. After a lengthy and, at times, fiery debate, lawmakers voted by 272 to 219 late Monday to back the Prevention of Terrorism Bill. It must now be debated and approved by Parliament's upper chamber, the House of Lords. Earlier Monday Prime Minister Tony Blair's government yielded a point to critics of the anti-terrorism law being rushed through Parliament, agreeing that a judge rather than a politician should issue orders to confine...

    NEW YORK The newest face of an alleged terrorist wears a goatee, stands about five feet tall, dresses in baggy clothes and resides in the Bronx. Gang member Edgar Morales, aka "Puebla," has the distinction of becoming one of the first people ever charged under New York's state terrorism laws. The Bronx district attorney has accused members of the St. James Boys street gang of shootings "committed with the intent to intimidate or coerce a civilian population." The other charges include murder, attempted murder, various weapons charges and assault. But prosecutors have not alleged that the gang is connected to...

    1/16/05, Berkeley, California Among those attending the anti-terrorism rally was Ellen Cohen of Palo Alto. "I oppose terrorism," she said. "Although I believe the Palestinians deserve a state, I don't agree with their means to achieve it. I don't think you should strap bombs on kids and send them out to kill other kids." She was disappointed to see a counter demonstration. "I was really hoping that they would be on this side, protesting terrorism," she said. - SF Chronicle 1/16/05 Around 700 folks (at its' peak), from all walks of life, showed up to support Israel, and to...
