    Members of 'Mexican Mafia' already in custody on other charges Law enforcement officers in Arizona say they have broken up an alleged plot to assassinate Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who is at odds with the White House over his investigation of Obama’s birth documentation, with the Department of Justice over his crackdown on illegal aliens, and assorted criminals already in jail. The sheriff’s office said today that three maximum security inmates were arrested for conspiracy to commit murder “stemming from a complex plot” that involved the assassination of the sheriff as well as a plot to murder another inmate....

    Seekers of peace and social justice should take note of today's 100th birthday celebration of the life of German theologian and Nazi resister Dietrich Bonhoeffer. As much as anyone - and as early as anyone - Bonhoeffer spoke out against the wickedness of Adolf Hitler's regime and took some of the most significant actions to thwart it. It was Bonhoeffer and a small circle of Lutheran ministers who first condemned the virulent anti-Semitism and reawakened militarism in Germany. It was Bonhoeffer who most loudly denounced his country's suicidal summons for war. It was Bonhoeffer who attacked the timidity of German...

    TIME Magazine cited "sources" Saturday who said Israel's Mossad agency was responsible for paying and training assassins to kill Iranian scientists in the past two years. The U.S.-based magazine also quoted unnamed Western intelligence sources as saying Israel was also responsible for the explosion at an Iranian military base outside Tehran last year. Last week another Iranian nuclear scientist was killed in a car bombing in broad daylight, the third to be assassinated in two years, just a few days after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced that activation was to begin deep underground at the Fordow uranium enrichment facility near Qom....

    Egyptian security forces recently foiled an Israeli attempt to assassinate former President Hosni Mubarak and other senior Egyptian officials, the Egyptian weekly Rose al-YÅ«suf reported on Thursday. According to the report, the attempt was foiled after the members of the group were arrested. The group numbered four people, including one Egyptian citizen and three Israelis, the report said. A senior Egyptian security official told Rose al-YÅ«suf that the assassination was supposed to be carried out using a sniper, while Mubarak was hospitalized in Sharm el-Sheikh following his ouster earlier this year. The four were caught after one of the group...

    Britain is ready to launch a surgical strike to assassinate Colonel Gaddafi. Defence Secretary Liam Fox said yesterday he would sanction a ‘bunker buster’ attack on the Libyan dictator’s lair as long as civilian casualties could be avoided. Dr Fox vowed to destroy the Libyan dictator’s entire military infrastructure as senior officials privately admitted they want to engineer regime change. As Britain launched further strikes using Tomahawk cruise missiles last night and RAF strike jets prepared for a second night of raids, fears grew of ‘mission creep’ in the military assault intended to enforce the United Nations resolution authorising a...

The news came as the White House said it did not recognise a ceasefire called by Colonel Gaddafi, and anti-aircraft fire continued in the skies above Tripoli. The Libyan leader ordered armed forces to down weapons from 7.00pm, via a government spokesman at a press conference, but witnesses reported strong blasts and gunfire in Tripoli throughout the evening. A 10 Downing Street spokesman responded to the Libyan announcement, following a meeting...

    It didn't take long for political activists and media members to start blaming each other for the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Actually, the media in general are largely responsible for such shootings. By the media in general I mean everyone from the New York Times and MSNBC to Fox News. Both Republican and Democratic commentators have a tendency to use excessive rhetoric, but the Arizona shooter doesn't seem to have been concerned with regular political issues or be involved with either political party.

    Should Pinal County residents be concerned about the possibility of drug assassins invading the Vekol Valley? Yes, says Sheriff Paul Babeu. No, says the Department of Homeland Security. The current spat started with a press release that the sheriff's office sent out early Friday morning. In the release, Babeu said that in May the Department of Homeland Security informed several law enforcement agencies that assassins could be on their way to Pinal County's Vekol Valley. According to the sheriff, DHS based its warning on intelligence from a "proven credible confidential source," who told them that a cartel had decided to...

    Border: If there's one word we shouldn't want to add to the U.S. lexicon, it's sicario, the Spanish word for contract killer. But with lawmen warning of sicarios now in Arizona, we may soon know that word — and worse. With little to worry about in crossing the unguarded U.S. border, it was only a matter of time before cartel smugglers began fighting over the lucrative spoils themselves. Last May 13, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) warned Arizona authorities that it had intelligence that 15 trained sicarios from Mexico's Sinaloa cartel were heading to Arizona, the Arizona Republic reported....

    TRAVELLERS to Europe face being treated like drug smugglers as security chiefs are expected to recommend new intrusive security measures. French anti-terror chiefs are expected to propose the new measures, such as full body X-rays or handing in all electronic devices, after a terrorist tried to kill a Saudi prince with a bomb he had inserted into his body. Al Qaeda's latest ploy was first pioneered by Abdullah Hassan al Asiri, who blew himself apart in Jeddah in late August in an attack on Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the Saudi anti-terrorism chief. The 23-year-old terrorist blew himself into 70 pieces...

    I first wrote about the Gitmo prison, four years ago. I laid out facts the MSM have yet to discover. Here’s another dose: 1. If Gitmo is closed, the prisoners, AND the complaints, will go elsewhere. (Is Senator Mel Martinez really that clueless?) 2. The Geneva Conventions do NOT apply to anyone captured in plain clothes, behind the lines, hiding among civilians (and also killing civilians). Anyone can read the Geneva Conventions for themselves. Fighters/soldiers must meet four conditions to be covered. Terrorists fail to meet at least three of those. These are not “insurgents.” Insurgents are people who disagree...

    Until modern times, there existed no form of legitimacy in the Middle East outside of Islam. Rulers ruled in the name of God; assassins struck them down in the name of God. The assassinations of the early caliphs and the struggle between the Sunni rulers and the Assassins in the Middle Ages took precisely this form: each side claimed to act in accord with divine will, revealed in divine texts. Religion played a crucial role in the rationale of assassination, but it also played a crucial role in the rationale of government, law, and warfare—indeed, of everything. This invocation of...

    LONDON: At least 30 Sikh children in Paris and its suburbs are to keep their turbans on as they enter their school gates on Thursday in a showdown between the global Sikh community's right-to-turban campaign and a controversial French law. The new law makes it illegal to wear Sikh turbans, Muslim hijabs or Jewish yarmulkes to school. Outsize crucifixes are a no-no as well. The Sikhs, estimated at roughly 10,000 in France, are the smallest minority affected by the proposed ban, but their Europe-wide campaign has been the loudest.

Factual evidence for what was a long-standing myth has now been found by a French explorer, Henri Baq, in Iran. Baq has discovered scrolls of well-preserved manuscripts in underground cellars of an old Assassin castle at Alamut, near the Caspian Sea. Written in the early thirteenth century by a Jewish scholar named Isaac Ben Sherira,' these manuscripts shed new light on the real story behind the flying carpet of the Arabian Nights.
