    The White House said Friday that the Islamic State’s territorial caliphate in Syria, where the terrorist group once controlled 8 million people, has been 100 percent wiped out. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders showed reporters maps of Islamic State, or ISIS, territory in 2014, when it controlled large swaths of the war-torn nation, and of Syria today, with all the previous Islamic State areas defeated by U.S. and allied forces. Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan briefed President Trump about the developments during a flight on Air Force One to Florida. The announcement came after intense fighting in recent...

    The so-called "Match of Return" protests are underway in the Gaza Strip. Tensions between the Israelis and the Palestinians near the Gaza border have been mounting since last March, which marked the beginning of the Great March of Return. Thousands of Palestinians have been rallying every week since then to demand access to what they consider to be their ancestral land in Israel, prompting clashes with Israeli border guards. In fall, the situation on the Gaza border escalated due to continued shelling and launches of arson balloons from Gaza into the Israeli territory.

    Baghouz, Syria -- It still wasn't completely clear Thursday morning whether ISIS had been definitively defeated in the terror group's last tiny sliver of territory in Syria, but CBS News correspondent Charlie D'Agata said that what had for months been a vicious battle, appeared all but over. At its peak in 2015, ISIS held an area across Syria and neighboring Iraq almost the size of Indiana. But four years later, they held less than a square mile at the beginning of this week, and the final battle was on to recapture the patch of ground in Baghouz, eastern Syria. For...

    Sweden: Shia Muslims fearful of returning Islamic State jihadis The Shia Muslim community in Sweden is concerned about its safety “if Islamic State militants return home.” Unfortunately for the Shia, Leftist Swedes believe that it is “racist” for Sweden not to embrace Swedish jihadis as they would any other Swedish citizen. Many other nations, such as Canada, hold the same view. Leftists and the many charlatans who are gainfully employed in the anti- “racism” industry have managed to exacerbate racial divisions. In this industry, those who do not fit their narrative do not exist. Muslims who are threatened by other...

    Sweden: Serious crimes being committed by returning Islamic State jihadists, cops don’t know where many of them are “According to a new investigation, one in three returned Islamic State fighters in Sweden have committed serious crimes after coming back from the Middle East.” Shame on any political leader and authority who does not deal with these facts. No one who is migrating to a Western country checks his deep-seated doctrinal beliefs at the door. They bring these beliefs with them and threaten the safety of innocent civilians. But to point out this obvious fact renders one “Islamophobic.” “Sweden: Serious Crimes...

    President Trump on Thursday said the U.S. will recognize Israeli control of the disputed Golan Heights territory, delivering a diplomatic win for prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of a tough reelection race. “After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!” Trump tweeted. The announcement came days before Trump was scheduled to meet at the White House with Netanyahu, who has urged top U.S. officials to make the move. --This breaking news report will...

    BAGHOUZ, Syria -- The caliphate has crumbled, and the final offensive is over. While the official announcement hasn’t yet been made – Fox News has been told that this village, the last ISIS stronghold, is liberated. It’s the first time since we’ve been here in Syria for five days that the bombs have stopped dropping and the gunfire has disappeared. We have witnessed the end of the caliphate – the brutal empire that once ruled over 8 million people – is gone. Troops here are now bringing down the black flags of ISIS. The flags no longer fly over the...

    US Taliban jihadi John Walker Lindh to be released in May, supports ISIS, advocates for global jihad John Walker Lindh was captured while fighting alongside the Taliban against U.S. troops. If that isn’t treason, what is? This jihadi says he wants to move to Ireland, but if the Irish aren’t stupid enough to let him in, he will likely become a hero of the Muslim victimhood circuit in the U.S., speaking at CAIR and ISNA conferences, demonizing the United States and slyly recruiting for jihad. “John Walker Lindh, American ex-Taliban fighter, to be released in May, hasn’t denounced Islamism,” by...

    Warplanes flew near Baghouz in eastern Syria early on Wednesday, a Reuters witness said, as the final remnants of the Islamic State group held a narrow strip of land along the Euphrates in a last-ditch defense of its dwindling territory. On Tuesday, the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said they had driven the remaining Islamic State fighters in the town of Baghouz from a makeshift encampment that had represented most of its remaining territory.

    U.S.-backed Syrian forces on Tuesday seized control of an encampment held by the Islamic State group in eastern Syria, after hundreds of militants surrendered overnight, a spokesman said, signaling the group’s collapse after months of stiff resistance. A group of suspects involved in a January bombing that killed four Americans in northern Syria were among militants captured by the Kurdish-led forces. The taking of the IS camp was a major advance but not the final defeat of the group in Baghouz. Still, fighters from the force were starting to celebrate anyway.

    As the battle against the Islamic State (IS) group in eastern Syria enters its final stages, the BBC's Jewan Abdi says the mood amongst many of the jihadists' supporters who have left the area, including many women, remains defiant. As I walked among them with my camera, trying to talk to them and film, several IS women suddenly attacked me and threw stones, dust and cans. "Go film the brothers, don't come here. Go. Leave. Go film them, we're the woman of the Islamic State, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar (God is greatest)," they said.

    A Georgia woman has been charged with aiding ISIS by creating a "kill list" online that included the names of both State Department employees and American soldiers, ABC News reported on Monday. Kim Anh Vo, now 20 years old, joined in 2016 ISIS’s United Cyber Caliphate, which was dedicated to carrying out online attacks and cyber intrusions against Americans, according to the indictment unsealed last week by federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York. Vo, who was known as "F@ng," "Zozo" or "Miss.Bones" online, is accused of working with the UCC to recruit a minor in Norway and...

    The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) launched arguably their last counter-offensive to regain the territory they lost to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the Baghouz area of eastern Deir Ezzor. Backed by nearly 100 women and children, the Islamic State stormed the Syrian Democratic Forces’ positions at the northern flank of the Baghouz Camp in a bid to force the latter to retreat from several areas.

    Hamas-linked CAIR lawyer says Islamic State bride barred from US wants to return to “help deradicalize others” Hoda Muthana isn’t coming back, at least while Donald Trump is President: And Hamas-linked CAIR’s Hasan Shibly is peddling snake oil about how Muthana wants to come back to keep other Muslims from making the same mistake she did. She would “deradicalize” others, you see. Deradicalization programs, upon which the West has placed so much hope, have long been an obvious failure. Such programs are based on the premise that the true teachings of Islam are peaceful, and so all that needs to...

    Although the remarkable dumpster fire that is the Jussie Smollett self-beclowning saga has captured all the headlines this week, the legally murky kerfuffle that is the so-called "ISIS bride" — Hoda Muthana — is probably the more nationally pressing story. Muthana was born in the U.S. to a father who was a Yemeni diplomat. All sides of the constitutional debate regarding the original public meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment's Citizenship Clause concede that if the Clause's intermediary phrase, "subject to the jurisdiction thereof," means anything at all, it refers to the fact that the children of foreign diplomats are not...

Hoda Muthana, 24, left Hoover, Alabama in 2014, in order to join ISIS in Syria, where she would later call for US Muslims to 'spill all of the blood' by launching terror attacks during Memorial Day events. Now, having...
