    Two Detroiters targeted by attackers shot and killed those attackers in separate incidents Saturday. It was shortly after midnight when two men approached a woman in the driveway of her home on Abbington Street on Detroit's west side, and attempted to carjack her. The woman, who has a permit to carry, pulled out a gun and fired several shots at the men. One of her would-be carjackers was killed. Neighbor Wala Alshibil said incidents like this make him think about having a gun for protection. "I'm not a big fan of guns but to protect yourself, if you have to...

    Gunmen threw grenades and opened fire Saturday killing at least 10 people in an attack targeting non-Muslims at an upscale mall in Kenya's capital that was hosting a children's day event, witnesses said. A local hospital was overwhelmed with the number of wounded being brought in hours after the attack, so they had to divert them to a second facility. Elijah Kamau, who was at the mall at the time of the midday attack, said that the gunmen made a declaration that non-Muslims would be targeted. "The gunmen told Muslims to stand up and leave. They were safe, and non-Muslims...

    Even before the rescue of Captain Phillips, the press was already hard at work doing what they always do, spinning the Muslim perpetrators of the attack into its victims. The current story that is beginning to rise through the bowels of the mainstream media is that the pirates are actually volunteer fisherman who have banded together to stop toxic dumping and fishing by foreign vessels. That’s right the Somali pirates are actually misunderstood environmentalists. And once again Westerners are to blame for causing the poor Muslims to attack them.

    (IsraelNN.com) Indian Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon has linked Pakistan's ISI spy agency to the deadly terrorist attacks in Mumbai last year.

"The perpetrators [of the Mumbai attacks] planned, trained and launched their attacks from Pakistan, and the organizers were and remain clients and creations of the ISI,” Menon accused. Menon had previously accused Pakistan of failing to bring the attackers to justice, and Indian officials have said the Mumbai attackers must have had support from within Pakistani agencies. However, Menon's latest speech...

    "I know it when I see it" was the famous response by a U.S. Supreme Court justice to the vexed problem of defining pornography. Terrorism may be no less difficult to define, but the wanton killing of schoolchildren, of mourners at a funeral, or workers at their desks in skyscrapers surely fits the know-it-when-I-see-it definition.The press, however, generally shies away from the word terrorist, preferring euphemisms. Take the assault that led to the deaths of some 400 people, many of them children, in Beslan, Russia, on September 3. Journalists have delved deep into their thesauruses, finding at least twenty euphemisms...

    The two Kuwaiti gunmen who died in a shootout that also killed a US marine and wounded another have been hailed by many of their countrymen as anti-American "heroes." Anas Ahmad Ibrahim al-Kandari, 21, and Jassem Hamad Mubarak al-Hajeri, 26, were condemned as "terrorists" by Kuwaiti and US authorities. Yet for the scores of Kuwaitis who turned up for their burial on Wednesday, they were "martyrs" who gave their lives in the ultimate expression of anti-American feelings in the Gulf emirate. Kandari and Hajeri killed a US marine and wounded another participating in the "Eager Mace 2002" wargames on Kuwait's...
