    French citizens will contribute an extra €1.60 ($1.67) on their property insurance policies to help finance a fund for victims of the extremist attacks that have recently hit the country. The measure comes into force on Sunday and requires policy holders to contribute €5.90 instead of €4.30. French government officials said in October when they revealed the scheme that about 90 million insurance policies are floating the fund, which currently has reserves of €1.45 billion. …

    Britain's most notorious Islamist extremists were bankrolled by more than Ł1 million of taxpayers' money while waging their campaign of hate, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. A dozen supporters of Islamic State recruiter Anjem Choudary – many of them now convicted terrorists or jihadis who are fighting in Syria or have died there – were paid wages by a businessman who was handed huge sums of public money to run computer training courses in libraries and job centers. And now a judge has found that the man – a close associate of Choudary's – funnelled tens of thousands of...

    ROME — On the eve of a trip to the United States, Pope Francis has called himself a “son of immigrants” and confirmed the point by issuing a blunt warning to any religious orders in Europe that spurn his recent call to open their doors to refugees because they want to make money off their properties instead. Go ahead, the pope said, but be ready to pay taxes just like everybody else. “Some religious orders say ‘No, now that the convent is empty we are going to make a hotel and we can have guests, and support ourselves that way,...

    ...Al-Muhallab said, “You must use deception in war, for it is more effective than reinforcements.” Some methods of deception include: a. Planting spies. b. Reconnaissance. c. Feigning an intent to attack an area other than the actual target, for when the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) wanted to attack one area, he would give his army the impression they were going to attack another. “If a man’s chest is too narrow to hold his own secret, then the chest of the one with whom he stores the secret is even narrower” [Poetry].

    I was so much hoping to get a Q&A lined up with Rep. Jeff Leach of Plano on the subject of Sharia Law in Texas. He’s got a bill that would prohibit family court rulings based on foreign legal codes if that violated our own constitutional protections. These kinds of bills and state constitutional amendments have popped in several states and have been adopted in a bunch. They’re widely accepted as trying to keep the Islamic legal code at bay. A story in the Houston Chronicle mentioned Leach’s bill in its coverage of the anti-Muslim furor at the Capitol last...

    Iranian Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi condemned the 'Zionists' for inciting global drug trade and addiction in a bid to annihilate non-Jewish communities in accordance with Talmudic teachings, Fars News Agency (FNA) reported. Addressing a ceremony for the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking held in Tehran on Tuesday, Rahimi alleged that the prevalence of narcotics and drug-addiction throughout the world is rooted in the Talmud. “The book teaches them how to destroy non-Jews so as to protect an embryo in the womb of a Jewish mother,” Rahimi stated. The Iranian vice-president said that the Zionists' direct involvement...

    NAIROBI, Kenya (CNN) -- One of the pirates who held a Saudi oil supertanker off Somalia before releasing it for ransom has told CNN how five in his group drowned when the boat in which they left the ship capsized as they tried to evade rival pirates seeking a cut of the money.

    Somali pirates released the Sirius Star, the Saudi supertanker seized in November. The U.S. Navy photographed the $3 million dollar ransom dropped onto the ship by a remote-controlled parachute. Did we try to apprehend the Somalis once they released the ship and its crew? No, we did not. We didn't? We didn't do anything to stop the perpetrators even though we were close enough to record the events on film. We should have captured or killed the Somalis instead of idly observing their chance drowning. Every pirate has now realized that the mightiest nation on earth has, by its own...

    Crewmen fired high pressure water jets Friday to fight off heavily armed Somali pirates trying to board a Greek oil tanker in the dangerous Gulf of Aden, officials said. It was the fourth pirate attack of the new year. Armed with guns and rocket-propelled grenades, pirates in three speedboats twice tried to board the Greek-flagged Kriti Episkopi but were driven away when the crew turned fire hoses on them and EU aircraft scrambled from a nearby European Union naval flotilla to help, shipping company and Greek government officials said.
