    Darrell Issa, a nine-term congressman who retired last year, will run against fellow Republican Duncan Hunter in California’s 50th district. Republicans Carl DeMaio, a former city councilman in San Diego, and state senator Brian Jones are also challenging Hunter, who is not giving up his bid despite a looming trial on corruption charges. The “GOP Brawl,” as Politico put it, enhances the prospects of Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar, who lost to Hunter by 3.4 percentage points last November. As Robin Abcarian of the Los Angeles Times explains, Campa-Najjar has been telling voters “Whether in two years, four years, or 10 years....

The Black September was brewed by the Palestinians presence and aggression in Jordan.

    MUNICH (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Mike Pence rebuked European powers over Iran and Venezuela on Saturday in a renewed attack on Washington’s traditional allies, rejecting a call by Germany’s chancellor to include Russia in global cooperation efforts. In speeches and in private talks at the Munich Security Conference, Pence and Chancellor Angela Merkel laid out competing visions for how the West should address world crises. ...

On October 1, the German bishops’ news website Katholisch.de reported on the Beer interview,...

    “Grandson of terrorist rises in race against indicted GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter.” That Fox News headline drew criticism from the terrorist’s grandson, who called it “unfortunate” and a “quick take.” But the headline was entirely accurate.  The terrorist is Muhammad Yusuf al-Najjar of Black September, the PLO squad that murdered 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972. The terrorist’s grandson is Ammar Campa-Najjar, 29, who is “challenging Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter in California’s 50th Congressional District, where Hunter is now embroiled in a federal indictment” over $250,000 in campaign funds.  Campa-Najjar is “a Palestinian-Mexican American who worked...
  • Number of Salafists in Germany has doubled in past five years

    The number of Salafists in Germany has increased twofold since 2013, the interior ministry said Wednesday, surpassing December’s “all-time high.” The number of individuals classified as Salafists by regional authorities in state offices for the Protection of the Constitution reached 11,000, the ministry said, confirming an earlier report from German newspaper Tagesspiegel. Five years ago, the German intelligence agency BfV placed this number at 5,500 — half of the current total. Salafism is a fundamentalist Islamic ideology. Security authorities see Salafism as a potential entry point to Islamist terrorism. Just under 5 million Muslims live in Germany, meaning that the...

    Cardinal Reinhard Marx, the head of the German Bishops’ Conference, has called on Christians to seek contact to Muslims and non-believers in view of what he described as an era of “verbal, political and military rearmament.” In comments to be delivered at a religious procession in Munich on the Christian holy day of Good Friday, Marx said Christian believers should say “no” when hate and violence were preached and condemn attacks on churches, synagogues or mosques. He urged those of the Christian faith to go the path of non-violence and love when encountering people of other religions or those who...

    Cindy McCain accepted an award on behalf of her husband John McCain, who is ill with brain cancer, on Saturday night at the Munich Security Conference. She read a letter from her husband in which the Republican Senator and longtime foreign policy hawk urges America’s allies to stand by the values that won the Cold War. The Ewald Von Kleist Award is given for service to international peace and conflict resolution. It is named for a German who volunteered to wear a suicide vest in the attack on Adolf Hitler, and who founded the conference conference in Munich.

    The German federal police are expanding its anti-terrorism unit GSG 9 and installing a special squad in Berlin. The move is a reaction to ongoing terrorist threats in the capital. The federal police squad that deals with terrorist attacks is to become significantly larger, and will set up a second base in Berlin. “We’re talking about around a third of the current strength of the unit,” GSG 9 commander Jérome Fuchs told Berlin state broadcaster RBB on Monday, before adding that finding the right personnel would be a “big challenge,” and that “fitness, strength of character, and teamwork” were particular...

    Revellers from across the world braved the rain as they made their way to the annual Oktoberfest in Munich for the start of the famous German event. The world's most famous beer festival, which kicked off today and runs until October 3, is expected to welcome more than six million people to the Bavarian capital over course of the event. Both locals and tourists alike were greeted with downpours as they made their way to the Theresienwiese, an open space in the Munich which is used to host Oktoberfest, but partygoers soon seemed to perk up as the event officially...

    SIERRA VISTA — Oompah-pah bands, brats and beer gave Sierra Vista a taste of Bavaria Friday and Saturday during the 22nd annual Oktoberfest. As the Sierra Vista Community Band filled the beer garden with such festive German favorites as the Chicken Dance, Beer Barrell Polka, Happy Wanderer and Hamburger Waltz on Friday, parents and youngsters danced along. Manuel Garcia and his 7-year-old granddaughter were particularly fond of the Chicken Dance. “I lived in Heidelberg for three years and really enjoyed Oktoberfest celebrations while I was there,” he said. “I’m sure my Chicken Dance could use a little work, but my...

    A 12 foot wall is being built in Munich to separate a housing estate from a new migrant centre that will house 160 unaccompanied minors. Locals living in the Neuperlach Süd housing development in Munich, less than 100 metres from the site at which young migrants will be staying, went to court to get the wall built. Germans living in the area fear bad behaviour among the newcomers, and concern over likely levels of noise when they arrive, will lower the value of their properties if the migrant centre remains for an extended length of time, reports Der Spiegel. The...

    The Muslim Brotherhood's Conquest of Europe by Lorenzo Vidino Middle East Quarterly Winter 2005 Since its founding in 1928, the Muslim Brotherhood (Hizb al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun) has profoundly influenced the political life of the Middle East. Its motto is telling: "Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."[1] While the Brotherhood's radical ideas have shaped the beliefs of generations of Islamists, over the past two decades, it has lost some of its power and appeal in the Middle East, crushed by...

    Integration into the job market for migrants has become a major ongoing task for the German government but in one town migrants are refusing to work entirely. One of the major issues of the migrant crisis is Germany and elsewhere has been the economic impact the massive wave of migrants will have in Europe. While some experts initially were optimistic about a potential vast new source of skilled labour, most economists have come to the conclusion that the migrants who have arrived are for the most part unskilled and poorly educated. Yet in own Saxon town, they have moved...

    Israel's Defense Ministry on Friday responded to U.S. President Barack Obama's claims from a day earlier that the nuclear deal signed between Iran and the West had been successful in improving the security situation in the Middle East, and that even Israel acknowledges this fact. "The Israeli defense establishment believes that agreements have value only if they are based on the existing realities, and have no value if the facts on the ground are completely opposite of those upon which the agreement rests," the statement read. "The Munich Agreement did not prevent the Second World War and the Holocaust, precisely...

    The perpetrators of two attacks in Germany claimed by the ISIS terror group were given advice on the separate assaults by members of the jihadist organization, German media reports. Without citing its sources, German weekly Der Spiegel said the two men exchanged messages with individuals using different phone numbers, including some that were registered in Saudi Arabia. The Afghan teenager who in July went on an axe rampage on a train, wounding four tourists from Hong Kong and a German passer-by, had reportedly discussed how he would carry out the attack with his ISIS contacts.

    According to research by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the Munich gunman was proud to have been born on the same day as Hitler and hated Turks and Arabs. The 18-year-old gunman who killed nine people before killing himself in Munich on Friday, was proud to be born on April 20th 1998 and thus share a birthday with Adolf Hitler, the FAZ has been told by people close to the investigation. David Sonboly, who was born to Iranian parents in Munich, was allegedly proud to be German and Iranian, which he considered to make him “Aryan,” people who knew him told...
