  • “Allahu Akhbar” and then BOOM! In Brussels — Again

    Gates of Vienna ^ | 21 Jun, 2017 | Baron Bodissey
    An Islamic terrorist (or would-be terrorist; I’m not sure if he’ll be allowed his 72 virgins for this botched job) blew himself up in a Brussels train station when soldiers began shooting at him. He had first detonated his luggage, apparently in an attempt to cause mass panic, and was then planning to cause casualties with his bomb belt. The actions of the alert soldiers prevented anyone besides the mujahid from being harmed. Authorities still haven’t established a motive for the attack. According to the eyewitness report below, however, the terrorist shouted “Allahu Akhbar!” just before he detonated.

    In the video posted to YouTube, titled, “ISIS Suicide Bomber FACE French group in Syria near al Raqqah (ENGLISH SUBTILES !)” it is reported that the men guiding the missiles are aiming at ISIS targets. In the video you can see a car, presumably with a suicide bomber behind the wheel, driving toward the camera and a several blasts that seem to be missing the vehicle. Someone shouts, in what is believed to be Kurdish, subtitled “Prepare the Milan.”

    Evacuations were ordered Friday after a volcano erupted on a small island in the Japanese island chain. Mount Shindake erupted at 9:57 a.m. Friday, local time, and caused a 4.0-magnitude earthquake, according to the United States Geological Survey. About 140 people living on the island were ordered to evacuate, the Japanese government said. The Japanese Meteorological Agency raised its volcano level to 5, its highest level, as a result of the eruption. Pyroclastic flows from the volcano reached the shore, Japanese broadcaster NHK reported.

    MOSCOW — A suspect in the murder of the opposition politician Boris Y. Nemtsov blew himself up as the police closed in on him overnight, Russian news reports said on Sunday, while new disclosures indicated that one of the men already detained in the killing had served as a police officer in the fight against Islamic insurgents. Five suspects were due to be arraigned at Basmanny District Court in Moscow, Vladimir Markin, a spokesman for Russia’s Investigative Committee, said in a statement. Security forces established a cordon around the court. The two prime suspects, whose names have been officially confirmed,...

    Iran on Monday promised that Hezbollah would deliver “crushing response” to the Israeli attack over the weekend, which killed six Iranian agents, including a top-level commander, and five Hezbollah members. “The experience of the past shows that the resistance current will give a crushing response to the Zionist regime’s terrorist moves with revolutionary determination and in due time and place,” Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), was quoted as saying. The Israeli strike came just days after Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah declared that the terror group was preparing for a war in Israel’s northern Galilee...

    Hezbollah supporters turned out in force on Monday to bury the son of the group's late commander, one of six fighters who died in an Israeli air strike in neighboring Syria that also killed an Iranian general. The killings raised the possibility of a retaliatory attack, with a senior Iranian official suggesting that Israel would be hit at "the right time and right place". An Israeli defense official said escalation was possible. Jihad Mughniyeh was buried in Beirut alongside his father Imad Mughniyeh, who was assassinated in Damascus in 2008. Though it was unclear what role Mughniyeh, who was in...

    Israelis live under the constant threat of terrorist attacks. Just overnight, Israel rolled up a six-member cell linked to the Islamic State with the alleged orders to execute strikes against Israeli targets inside the Jewish stateÂ’s territory. On IsraelÂ’s borders, Hamas to the south and Hezbollah to the north represent a constant terrorist threat. IsraelÂ’s ability to defend its borders by executing strikes on terrorist targets is further complicated by the fact that any one of those strikes could ignite an international incident by accidently killing a high-ranking military officer from one of those terror groupsÂ’ state sponsors. That...

    Western intelligence sources say son of late Hezbollah leader Mughniyeh was planning attacks on Israel, received direct Iranian sponsorship. Following reports of an IAF helicopter strike on Sunday that targeted a convoy of Hezbollah operatives and killed 10, Hezbollah-run television in Lebanon indicated the incident could prompt a "costly" surge in tensions in the region. On Sunday evening, the al-Manar news channel said the attack suggested that "the enemy has gone crazy because of Hezbollah's growing capabilities and it could lead to a costly adventure that will put the Middle East at stake." Western intelligence sources reported Sunday that Jihad...

    Iran's revolutionary guards' corps (IRGC) has confirmed that one of its senior commanders, general Mohammad Ali Allahdadi (or Dadi), has been killed by an Israeli strike on the Syrian sector of the Golan Heights. The air raid, which also killed six members of Lebanon's Shiite Hezbollah group, occurred near Syria's Quneitra border crossing with Israel. "Following the Zionist aggressions against the resistance in Syria, General Mohammad Allahdadi, a former commander of the Sarollah Brigade of the Revolutionary Guard, was martyred along with Jihad Moughniyah and three others in the same car," the Dana news website said. The senior commander was...
  • What is the Difference Between Asteroids and Comets?

    Asteroids and comets have a few things in common. They are both celestial bodies orbiting our Sun, and they both can have unusual orbits, sometimes straying close to Earth or the other planets. They are both “leftovers” — made from materials from the formation of our Solar System 4.5 billion years ago. But there are a few notable differences between these two objects, as well. The biggest difference between comets and asteroids, however, is what they are made of. While asteroids consist of metals and rocky material, comets are made up of ice, dust, rocky materials and organic compounds. When...

    WASHINGTON — Improvised explosive devices, like those that have killed and maimed thousands of American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, pose a growing threat across Texas and the United States, leading to calls for urgent cooperation between U.S. military experts and civilian law enforcement officers. Army Lt. Gen. Michael Barbero, director of the Pentagon's so-called Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization, alerted Congress in classified testimony this month to the mounting IED threat at home. He also highlighted the challenges his team faces trying to train stateside law enforcement agencies to detect, disarm and defeat the devices. “The domestic IED...
