    The DEA has informed Congress that an established nexus exists between drug traffickers and terrorism. As an example, the agency, which is a component of the U.S. Department of Justice, mentioned its work in thwarting the scheme to murder the Saudi Ambassador to the United States. The plot involved Middle Eastern criminals who believed they were dealing with a member of a violent Mexican cartel. “The nexus that exists between terrorism and drug trafficking organizations necessitates that DEA engage in proactive enforcement and intelligence gathering operations with its host nation law enforcement counterparts by targeting the command and control structure...

A former computer instructor at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (said) he was recruited by a professor there in 2006 to organize a group of student hackers to carry out cyberattacks against the United States,...

David Headley was giving evidence against Tahawwur Rana, who is accused of giving him cover to scout the sites. Headley said a Pakistani agent paid him $25,000 (£15,526) for the operation. Mr Rana has pleaded not guilty. His lawyers say he was tricked by Headley, a former friend. Headley has said he was trained by militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik had formally requested Saudi Arabia to accept Osama's family during a visit to Riyadh, according The Herald Tribune. The Saudis rejected this request, saying that Osama had been stripped of his Saudi citizenship more than 15 years ago. Osama was born in Saudi Arabia and his extended family stand among the Kingdom's most powerful people. Yemen also refused to accept custody of Amal Abdulfattah, one of the three widows of...

U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry Garber put Izhar Khan under oath and questioned him about his finances at a hearing Monday. Garber said the $28,000 the Muslim cleric said he has in the bank should be enough to pay for a private attorney.

Al-Amin won a settlement with the state that forces the prison system to supply him, and the Greensville Correctional Center library, with Muslim reading materials, CDs and DVDs. He'll also receive $2,000. Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's office decided to settle the seven-year legal battle after a series of court rulings in Al-Amin's favor. The state admitted no wrongdoing in the settlement but did agree to perform eight different acts to satisfy Al-Amin's claims. The case highlights a trend...

    Now, I am going to tell you the truth about the so-called "Arab Spring," and about the Middle East generally right now. First, the "Arab Spring" as a force for democracy, human rights and peace in Egypt seems to me to be a fraud. The dictator and his entourage who were kicked out in Egypt were pro-West, a bit restrained on Israel, open to free enterprise, and resistant to Iranian-sponsored terror. Egypt is now rapidly becoming anti-Israel, pro-Iran, pro the Iranian-sponsored terrorist group Hamas, and very far from being pro-human rights. They are arresting businessmen right and left in Egypt...

In the course of the operation that cost the al Qaeda leader his life, one of the two Black Hawk helicopters that carried the SEALs into bin Laden's Pakistani compound grazed one of the compound's walls and was forced to make a hard landing. With the chopper inoperable, at the end of the mission the SEALs...

    While condemning Israel, Arabs prefer life in Jewish state over Palestinian residency... The upheaval in Arab societies highlights the dramatic gap between Israel's democracy and its Arab neighbors. In fact, recent events in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Bahrain, Oman, Libya, Syria (and you ain't seen nothing yet…) have enhanced the craving in the Arab Street for the liberties and benefits of Israel's democracy. For example, Israeli ID cards have been sought by senior PLO and Hamas officials and their relatives, such as the three sisters of Ismail Haniyeh, the top leader of Hamas. They married Israeli Arabs and migrated from Gaza...

    ROME - It is great to be here in this beautiful city which for many centuries was the capital and the centre of Europe’s Judeo-Christian culture. Together with Jerusalem and Athens, Rome is the cradle of our Western civilization – the most advanced and superior civilization the world has ever known. As Westerners, we share the same Judeo-Christian culture. I am from the Netherlands and you are from Italy. Our national cultures are branches of the same tree. We do not belong to multiple cultures, but to different branches of one single culture. This is why when we come to...

    President Obama’s trip to South America has showcased promising partnerships...His visit, however, should also focus attention...on the fact that Iran and Venezuela are conspiring to sow Tehran’s brand of proxy terrorism in the Western Hemisphere...The danger posed by a network of terrorists in the Americas is very real. Last May, Muhammad Saif-ur-Rehm Khan, a Pakistani applying for a U.S. visa at the American Embassy in Santiago, Chile, was detained after guards detected traces of bomb-making materials on his hands. U.S. officials discovered Khan’s link to the Islamist group Jamaat al-Tabligh. It is not clear how much they shared with Chilean...

    The fence along the 240 km border with Egypt will be completed by the summer of 2012, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on a tour of the area Tuesday, saying he also wants to see a similar physical barrier built along the border with Jordan. Netanyahu helicoptered down to an area along the border, about an hour car drive north of Eilat, where he visited three and a half months ago. At that time work was just beginning on the barrier, while this time he looked out to see a five meter metal fence, covered with barbed wire, being erected...

    CIUDAD DEL ESTE, Paraguay — The Iranian-backed Hezbollah militia has taken root in South America, fostering a well-financed force of Islamist radicals boiling with hatred for the United States and ready to die to prove it, according to militia members, U.S. officials and police agencies across the continent.

    With a thousand Libyans (and perhaps many more) dead already from the Qaddafi regime’s attacks on its own population, and with reports of thousands of mercenaries and militiamen streaming toward Tripoli, President Obama finally spoke to the nation about this violence on Wednesday afternoon. He announced solemnly that he was sending Secretary of State Clinton to Geneva to visit the U.N. Human Rights Council and “hold consultations”—next Monday! But fear not: Undersecretary of State Bill Burns is apparently traveling sooner than that to “several stops in Europe” and then even in the actual Middle East, to “intensify our consultations.” This...

An investigation by Telemundo and NBC News has uncovered details of an extensive smuggling network run by Hezbollah, a Shiite Muslim group founded in Lebanon in 1982 that the United States has labeled an international terrorist organization.

    You can also peruse Tahrir Square in Cairo, where as many as a million Egyptians turned out for the triumphant — dare we say Khomeini-esque — return to the homeland of Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi. He is the sharia compass of the Muslim Brotherhood and, for that matter, millions of Muslims the world over. As John Rosenthal has been reporting...the anti-Mubarak protesters whom the mainstream media and the Obama administration paint as the vanguard of “democracy,” continue to display visceral contempt for Israel and Jews. Rosenthal observes, “the numerous portraits of Mubarak with a Star of David scrawled on his face...
