Her family was so enraged that they captured them, and shot Aleem to death; they shot Nadia as well, she survived but is in very critical condition, and according to the doctors she will most likely not survive. According to one Pakistani report: Nadia’s father kidnapped the couple, and he let the rickshaw driver leave while the couple remain seated in the rickshaw on gun point and then he brought the rickshaw in the farms and...

    Show availability of Iran for al Qaeda training, plotting. This week, prosecutors in New York introduced eight documents recovered in Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan as evidence in the trial of a terrorism suspect. The U.S. government accuses Abid Naseer of taking part in al Qaeda’s scheme to attack targets in Europe and New York City. The files do not support the view, promoted by some in the Obama administration, that bin Laden was in “comfortable retirement,” “sidelined,” or “a lion in winter” in the months leading up to his death. Some of the key revelations in the newly-released...

    "The document warns that 'preparations' for an attack in India are underway and predicts that an attack will provoke an apocalyptic confrontation with America," the report said. The ISIS is preparing to attack India to provoke an Armageddon-like confrontation with the US, according to an internal recruitment document of the feared group which also seeks to unite the Pakistani and Afghan Taliban into a single army of terror. An investigative story published yesterday by the USA Today and reported by American Media Institute refers to a 32- page Urdu document obtained from a Pakistani citizen with connections inside the Pakistani...

    If you can't beat members of the "birther" movement, join 'em. That's the approach President Obama took on Saturday night in Kenya, his father's homeland, when he made a wisecrack about his birthplace — which suspicious critics have harped on for years. "Some of my critics back home might be suggesting I'm here to look for my birth certificate," Obama said while making a toast at a state dinner hosted by President Uhuru Kenyatta. "That's not the case." In 2011, Obama made his birth certificate public after so-called birthers questioned his eligibility to be president, claiming he was not a...

According to US officials cited in the report, some are pushing for Pollard’s release in a matter of weeks, while others say it could take months.

According to The Express Tribune, the Pakistani government did not provide any details and even declined to confirm the size of the transaction, despite the magnitude of the agreement. However, the composition of the Chinese delegation, with whom the agreement was reached, suggested that the accord involved purchase of eight submarines.

In its recently released human rights report on Iraq, however, the State Department said that the Iraqi government had “lost effective control” over a large part of Iraqi territory to the Islamic State terrorist group. Also, according to the State Department’s Country Reports on Terrorism 2014, the group that the administration now calls ISIL was founded in the 1990s by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and fought against U.S. forces in Iraq before Obama removed U.S. troops from that...

A three-member panel of judges heard the case in Supreme Court's Lahore registry and admitted Asia Bibi's petition for full hearing after initial arguments by her defence lawyer besides staying her execution till the matter is adjudicated.

It's built on verification.” This nuclear agreement, however, seems to be predicated more on this administration’s proclivity towards building on hope. The Obama administration is hoping that an inspection regime by the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will accomplish under this agreement what the UN has failed to do for decades under the Non-Proliferation of...

On top of that, they may even be eligible for the foreign earned income exclusion, which in 2014 meant that the first $99,200 of their total income earned overseas was excluded from being taxed at the Federal level (it’s higher for 2015).

This has led news outlets and Twitter users to call the film "racist." A British comedian originally brought attention to the line, offering a tongue-in-cheek rant against the dinosaur's name. However, people did not get the joke, and are actually calling the film racist. The Independent called the line "very...

For all of the night of February 24, 2000, residents of the hamlet of Lanjote had bunkered down, hoping not to be hit by artillery fire arcing across the LoC. The 16 bodies on the streets, though, bore evidence of the precision savagery of the knife, not the shell: 90-year-old Mohammad Alam Wali, and a young couple, Mohammad Murtaza and Kali Begum, had been decapitated. Limbs were severed; heads hacked. The youngest victim, Ahmad Niaz, was just two. With deliberation, it seemed, the...

    Is it a good idea to loosen the screening process for Pakistani nationals seeking visas to enter the United States? If you believe that such an outcome has national security problems written all over it, be very wary about giving Obama fast-track trade authority. Several weeks ago, we listed 6 reasons even free traders should oppose giving Obama fast-track authority, given the political climate, the distrust of the president, the comprehensive nature of these agreements, and the lack of ability to practically relinquish the fast track authority if the trade deals are finalized with harmful provisions. But even more concerns...

    Top Muslim authorities in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan spoke out over the weekend against extremism, the latest examples of religious figures doing what Western governments encourage as part of a broad campaign to reject and delegitimize any link between terrorism and Islam. In both cases, however, the authorities concerned have controversial records themselves, having drawn criticism in the past for justifying terror in the Pakistani instance and for inciting hatred of non-Muslims in the Saudi one. Addressing students at a Saudi-affiliated Islamic school in London at the weekend, the government-appointed imam of Mecca’s Grand Mosque, Sheikh Abdul Rahman al-Sudais, urged...

    President Obama's stunning declaration that the global image of the United States has greatly improved under his administration is another example of his ideology and narcissism's blinding him to his many policy failures. During a White House event with the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative, he managed to turn the subject to himself, saying, "People don't remember -- when I came into office, the United States in world opinion ranked below China and just barely above Russia. And today, once again, the United States is the most respected country on earth." As evidence, the White House cited a Gallup poll,...
  • Islamic State’s ‘Khorasan province’ threatens Taliban in latest video

    Long War Journal ^ | June 4, 2015 | By Thomas Joscelyn
    The Islamic State’s so-called “Khorasan province” threatened the Taliban in a video released late last month. The video, which is more than 15 minutes long, features a lengthy speech by an unnamed jihadist (see image above) in front of armed fighters and local villagers. The speaker, citing the Prophet Mohammed, warns that there cannot be two caliphs. If one of the caliphs fulfills the appropriate criteria for being the ummah’s supposed leader — that is, the head of the worldwide community of Muslims — then the other must be vanquished, the speaker says. Although he doesn’t name Afghan Taliban leader...

    Iran is offering thousands of dollars to Shia mercenaries from Afghanistan and Pakistan to join the fight to keep President Assad of Syria in power. According to Shia community leaders in Kabul, the recruitment drive is co-ordinated by the Iranian embassy in the Afghan capital. It provides visas to “hundreds” of Shia men each month willing to fight in Syria. Online Urdu- language recruitment is also taking place in Pakistan, with fighters offered $3,000 each to join up.

    Jamiat Ulema-e-Islami Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman even further added that these women are the 'real enemy' of Pakistan and should be eliminated. Looks like India's Khap Panchayat has got competition from Jamiat Ulema-e-Islami Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman. The religious leader recently during a press conference reportedly said that women in jeans are responsible for the earthquakes taking place around the world. Not only that, he also blamed these 'immodest women' for economic crisis and other natural disasters. Rahman did not stop here. He requested the Pakistan armed forces to launch a military operation against the women...

    As election fever sweeps the most socially conservative regions of Pakistan ahead of this weekend’s local government polls, one crucial group is feeling excluded. Following deals between local politicians and elders, women will have no say in the district and village council contests. The Guardian reports that the affected districts sit in the north-western province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), sitting on the border with Afghanistan. In marginally less conservative

    Indian Minister of State for Defence Rao Inderjit Singh struck an alarmist tone on Saturday, saying India is concerned that extremist groups such as Islamic State may get their hands on nuclear arms from Pakistan. “With the rise of ISIS in West Asia, one is afraid to an extent that perhaps they might get access to a nuclear arsenal from states like Pakistan,” Singh said on Saturday on the sidelines of the Shangri-La regional security conference in Singapore, Bloomberg reported. Singh went on to add that if Pakistan develops technology that enables its submarines to carry nuclear warheads, “it would...
