    The National Interest ^ | May 2, 2018 | James S. Robbins
    There is no reason for the United States not to push for a better deal—mainly one that addresses legitimate concerns without blowing up the agreement itself.On Monday, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu dramatically unveiled records detailing “Project Amad,” Iran’s “comprehensive program to design, build, and test nuclear weapons.” The information was taken from 100,000 pages of documents Israel had secretly obtained in January from a warehouse in Tehran. The records do not deal with ongoing aspects of Iran’s nuclear program—Project Amad was suspended in 2003—but they do show that Tehran had been lying about the program’s peaceful intent. They also...

    Germany's main Jewish leader says he would advise people visiting big cities against wearing Jewish skullcaps, following a street assault last week on two young men wearing them. The attack in Berlin, in which a 19-year-old Syrian asylum-seeker is a suspect, added to growing concern in Germany about anti-Semitism. Josef Schuster, the head of Germany's Central Council of Jews, told broadcaster Radioeins Tuesday that wearing a skullcap is right in principle, but that he was advising individuals "against showing themselves openly with a kippa in a big-city setting in Germany, and wear a baseball cap or something else to cover...

    A Honduran man living in Miami has pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State terrorist organization, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida announced Thursday. Vicente Adolfo Solano will face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for planning to bomb a local shopping mall in 2017, the attorney's office said in a statement. The 53-year-old man told an undercover government source in early 2017 that he was unhappy with the United States as a whole and wanted to carry out an attack in Miami. He later said he wanted...
  • Muslim serving 25 years for jihad terror plot tries to slit throat of prison warden

    03/14/2018 8:19:45 PM PDT · by Lera · 21 replies
    When a Muslim enters prison, what is done to turn him away from jihad? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. On the contrary, Muslims are given the opportunity to study the Quran and pray with other inmates. And so things like this are going to happen. There needs to be a thoroughgoing overhaul of how Islam is treated in our prison system. But that is not on the horizon. “Man serving 25 years in terrorism case pleads guilty to attempted murder of Victorville prison warden,” by Brittny Mejia, Los Angeles Times, March 13, 2018 (thanks to RN): The prisoner had been serving a...

    A Florida teenager is accused of murdering a 13-year-old boy and injuring two others in a stabbing attack, which he said was “because of his Muslim faith.” Local media reports that 17-year-old Corey Johnson will face charges of first-degree murder after officers attended a scene in Palm Beach Gardens on Monday where 13-year-old Jovanni Brand was dead, while mother Elaine Simon and her 13-year-old son Dane Bancroft were also found suffering from stab wounds. According to local police, Johnson was attending a sleepover at a friend’s house, when around 4 a.m. he decided to carry out the attack while other...

    Hezbollah threatened on Sunday to target Israel’s Mediterranean natural gas rigs in a future conflict, the latest in a string of such threats. The terror group, which has sought to position itself as Lebanon’s defense against Israel and amid an ongoing dispute over gas-rich offshore economic waters, released a video that showed what appeared to be drilling platforms floating above Israel’s gas fields with targeting sights superimposed on the images. The video, aired by Israel’s Hadashot TV news, also included quotes from Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah’s Friday speech, in which he warned that the group would retaliate against any Israeli...

Kizlyar’s mayor Alexander Shuvalov told Russian media the gunman opened fire as people were leaving a Sunday evening service at a local Orthodox church. “Four people were killed. The shooter was shot dead. Two police officers and a woman were wounded,” he said.

On Tuesday, through his propaganda minister Saeb Erekat who told her to “shut up,” Abbas threatened to cut off all ties with Nikki Haley. On Monday, he threatened...

    As I have reported here for the past 15 years, this is all according to Islamic texts and teachings. And for me (and a small handful of my colleagues who dare speak candidly about Islam), we have been demonized, marginalized and rendered radioactive. Meanwhile — a cop takes 13 bullets. Downtown New Yorkers get mowed down on Halloween by a devout Muslim ululating “allah akbar.” Coworkers enjoying Christmas festivities in San Bernardino are slaughtered in cold blood. Commuters to work on trains are stabbed by Muslims shouting “allah akbar” in Belgium, Switzerland, Ireland, Marseilles, Paris, Sweden, etc. Shoppers stabbed at...

    A study of France’s national crime agency, found that more than 220,000 women were groped, kissed and sexually assaulted on French public transport over a two-year period. The crime agency calls the total number of incidents of the 2015-2016 study, a “conservative estimate”. “Although the public mostly focuses on domestic violence, sexual violence committed on the street, on public transport or in other public places is just as serious, and merits more attention,” the report says. An earlier study, of the National Observatory of Crime and Criminal Justice (ONDRP), found that 267,000 people were sexually harassed on French public transport...
