    Islamic Jihad terrorists have accepted an Egyptian proposal for a ceasefire on condition that Israel does not continue to strike terror targets. Virtually every previous Gaza ceasefire has broken down, sometimes within hours and no longer than within several weeks. The announcement came three hours after a halt in rocket and mortar shell attacks on Israel.The IDF also has held its fire since the early morning attacks. One missile exploded in an athletic field, but no one was wounded. .....

    Here is a straight forward map of the results that the Obama foreign policy has had in North Africa and the Middle East. BARACK OBAMA'S FOREIGN POLICY ON DISPLAY The so-called "Arab Spring" has been nothing more than the abject spread of fundamental, extreme Islamic Jihad in these regions, threatening US interests and allies. When there was a chance for true liberty and an end to militant islam during the protests and rebellion in Iran, Obama sat back and let them be slaughtered. When there was an opportunity to have islamic jihad and militancy spread further in Egypt, Libya, Tunesia,...

    Transcript is not yet avaliable, but here is some of what the British Islamist Anjem Choudary said on the video clip while speaking to the crowd: "Today, now that the murder - or indeed the martyrdom - of Sheik Anwar Al Awlaki has been confirmed, may Allah accept him as a martyr. May Allah make his praise reach the East and the West. May Allah make him even more popular among the youth than he was before.....May Allah never let the call shari'a, for Jihad, and for Islam, die for the death or blood of any brother Muslim.

    DETROIT- The accused Christmas Day underwear bomber's request to be freed was denied Wednesday in court proceedings repeatedly disrupted by his yelling phrases including "Osama is alive.". Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who is defending himself in one of the highest profile terror cases in the US since 9/11, made several outbursts during jury selection proceedings in a Detroit federal courthouse and propped his feet on the defense table, prompting courtroom security to intervene. US District Judge Nancy Edmunds later reprimanded him, saying, "If you are asked to stand to address the jurors or address the court, you need to stand. Is...

    Egypt has forced Israel to abort a mission aiming to assasinate Hamas prime minister in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh, the Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram reported, citing Palestinian sources. According to the report, Egypt acted swiftly to pressure Israel to back out of the planned operation, which was decided upon following the recent multiple terror attacks near Eilat. Egypt also contacted the Islamic Jihad and swayed it to declare a ceasefire, while negotiating a ceasefire with Hamas and other factions in Gaza, most notably the Popular Resistance Committees. According to the report, the Palestinian Authority joined the efforts to convince the terror...

    The Islamic Jihad terrorist group is enraged over the death of a local commander in its Gaza division following an air strike overnight by the Israel Air Force. An IDF spokesperson confirmed that 34-year-old Ismail al-Asmar was killed in a targeted air strike on a car in which he was traveling late Tuesday night. Two other terrorists in the car were wounded, according to local medical sources. They were traveling near Rafiah, the city that straddles the Gaza border with Egypt. Senior Islamic Jihad member Ahmad al-Mudallal told reporters in response to Al-Asmar's assassination, “This crime was meant to underline...

    In 1941, 150 Jews were massacred by Iraqi nationalists in Baghdad. The pogrom predicted what their fate was likely to be under Arabs regimes in the future. Seventy years ago, on June 1, 1941, the most dramatic and violent pogrom in the Arab Middle East during World War II took place in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad. Known in Arabic as the Farhūd, this devastating pogrom left approximately 150 Jews dead, hundreds more wounded, and led to the ransacking of nearly 600 Jewish businesses.

    Israeli forces have been busy rounding up terrorist leaders from the Hamas and Islamic Jihad organizations in Judea and Samaria over the last several days. The arrest of a major Hamas figure on Saturday followed another, when a top Hamas political leader was taken into custody two days earlier. Hamas spokesman Khaled Al-Haj, 45, was arrested Saturday as he approached a checkpoint at the entrance of Araba, about 13 kilometers southwest of the Palestinian Authority-controlled city of Jenin. Al-Haj, a prominent Hamas political leader in Jenin, was first imprisoned during the first and second intifadas for nearly 11 years, according...

    The daily diet of hateful Islamist propaganda has had its intended effect. A terrorist attack has struck the Jerusalem bus station: At least 25 people were hurt and one woman was killed after an explosive device was detonated in a phone booth near the Convention Center. (Snip) The Israelis are the only Western population forced to live with their eyes turned to heaven, sending their children to school by different buses.

    Originally posted Sept. 29, 2003; reposted June 18, 2004 Senior investigators and analysts in the U.S. government have concluded that Iraq acted as a state sponsor of terrorism against Americans and logistically supported the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States - confirming news reports that until now have emerged only in bits and pieces. A senior government official responsible for investigating terrorism tells Insight that while Saddam Hussein may not have had details of the Sept. 11 attacks in advance, he "gave assistance for whatever al-Qaeda came up with." That assistance, confirmed independently, came in a variety of...

    The Islamic Jihad announced it was behind the mortar attacks, which it said were intended to strike an army outpost. The IDF has not yet retaliated but usually does so within 24 hours of terrorist strikes. The de facto Hamas government in Gaza last month said it would impose a total ceasefire that would be honored by other terrorist groups, but the promise quickly was broken. Attacks resumed and escalated, with advanced Grad missiles exploding last week at Ofakim and near a wedding in Netivot, two towns located near Sderot but usually out of range of Kassam rockets.

    US Politicians Duped By The Brotherhood In the United States, one individual maintained a pretense of "moderation" which would later embarrass the left and the right. According to the testimony of Dr. Michael Waller to the US Senate Committee on the Judiciary, Abdurahman Alamoudi was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. A man born in Eritrea in 1951, he arrived in the US in 1979 and became a naturalized US citizen on May 23, 1996. From 1985 onwards he became involved in many Muslim groups. In 1990 he founded the Washington DC-based American Muslim Council (AMC), which Waller states "has...

    Bombing opens vein of Christian anger in Egypt By PAUL SCHEMM, Associated Press Paul Schemm, Associated Press – Mon Jan 3, 4:54 pm ET CAIRO – The New Year's Day suicide bombing of a church that killed 21 people has opened up a vein of fury among Egypt's Christians, built up over years of what they call government failure to address persistent discrimination and violence against their community. [...] Christian anger, says rights activist Hossam Bahgat, stems in large part because they feel attacks against them can be carried out with impunity, something borne out by evidence of past incidents,...

    Mohamud isn’t the first Portland individual to be investigated for intent to travel overseas to engage in violent activity. According to an affidavit filed in the Portland Seven case, two of the defendants talked about the imam of Masjid as-Saber, Muhammad Kariye, with a cooperating witness. Kariye used money raised at the mosque to finance travel for individuals to join the mujahedeen in Afghanistan, the defendants said, and made statements supportive of armed jihad. In October 2002, Jeffrey Battle, one of the defendants, told the witness that Kariye had prepared individuals to fight jihad against Russia. Kariye “told his followers...

    Ever since the horrific public assassination of Rabbi Meir Kahane at the Marriott Hotel in New York City in 1990, there has been a small, yet vocal group of individuals trying to get certain US authorities - both state and federal - to pay attention to his murder. Their many entreaties both for personal justice and for a wider investigation fell on deaf ears. Nonetheless, the ramifications from the inaction of these US authorities can no longer be ignored. This small group's personal pain at the rabbi's cold-blooded assassination fueled their initial anguished pleas. However, there was much more underlying...

    What President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron didn't say during last week's joint news conference may have mattered more than what they did say. The omissions could lead to a grave setback in the war on terror and deadly results for the Afghan people. ...neither leader uttered the word "victory" or "win" or any other similar phrase. They made it sound as if the strategic goal was to stand up the Afghan security forces, leave as soon as that was done, and hope the locals were up to keeping things together. Neither man called for the defeat...
