    I am presenting the news and you decide. Michigan restaurateur gets another chance to fight deportation http://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2016/08/17/ibrahim-parkal-deportation-turkey-restauranteur/88905568/ "A decade later, however, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security began seeking his deportation, citing his past ties to the Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK, which had been designated a terrorist organization in 1997. Officials said Parlak did not initially reveal his PKK activities or his conviction. TODAY's NEWS https://sofrep.com/67010/bombing-in-southeastern-turkey-kills-nine-and-wounds-100/ "The bombing was likely carried out by the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), and Turkish officials have already blamed the group for the explosion."

    <p>A Qatar native held on charges of lying to the FBI in an investigation into the September 11 attacks was designated yesterday as an "enemy combatant" and could be tried before a military tribunal for helping al Qaeda operatives relocate in the United States. Ali Saleh Kahlah Al-Marri, 37, in Justice Department custody since late 2001, was given the new designation by President Bush and handed over to the Defense Department.</p>

    Sleeper Cells Testimony from deserters suggests the terror organization began establishing sleeper cells in multiple European countries early on, in Turkey in particular. According to the former IS fighters, they are made up of men who aren't on any watch lists. This enables IS to elude the vulnerability suffered by many based in Europe -- namely that they are known terrorists. The biographies of many terrorists are very similar: an early period of radicalization precedes a period of preparation just before an attack. By this point, however, many are already known to the authorities as dangerous and are subsequently often...

    Last weeks attacks in Brussels show that Islamic State has built up a sophisticated network of terrorists that goes well beyond Al-Qaidas capabilities. It is now able to strike using sleepers who have not yet been identified by security officials.

    How do you spend quality time with your best buddies? Back in the day, I’d have a couple of beers, play air hockey, or just shoot the breeze out in the garage while we worked on our cars. Enrique Marquez had other ways of passing the day in garages with San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook — by building pipe bombs. But relax, Marquez apparently told the FBI. It was just a hobby: Enrique Marquez, a former neighbor of Farook, told investigators he and his friend previously built pipe bombs, law enforcement officials said.Marquez said he had nothing to do with...

    No-go zones — elitist media and politicians claim they don’t exist. But they’d better tell that to Da’esh (ISIS), which, in a recently uncovered manifesto, brags that it has been using Western refugee programs to sneak terrorists into Europe with the aim of creating no-go zones. Perhaps even better described as Sharia-dominant mini-caliphates, Da’esh’s intent is to use the areas as bases from which to launch attacks such as the November 13 Paris massacre and the jihadist killings in San Bernardino yesterday

    Ted Cruz on Friday put a bit of distance between himself and arguably his closest ally in the presidential race: Donald Trump. Kicking off a two-day swing through Iowa, the U.S. senator from Texas was asked about Trump's apparent openness Thursday to a national registry of American Muslims in the wake of the recent Paris terrorist attacks. "I'm a big fan of Donald Trump's, but not a fan of government registries of American citizens," Cruz told reporters before a town hall at Briar Cliff University. The "First Amendment protects religious liberty." Asked Thursday by NBC News if he wanted to...

    Al Qaeda "sleeper cells" in Canada and the United States have communicated with each other as recently as this month, probably to plan terrorist attacks in the United States, Canadian intelligence experts said yesterday. The disclosure came in the wake of the arrest last week of a pizza delivery man in Ottawa who is suspected of being associated with the terrorist network of Osama bin Laden. Canadian authorities decided to arrest Mohamed Harkat, 34, shortly after he made calls to suspected al Qaeda members in the United States, said Reid Morden, former director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, who...

    Monday's protesters called 63-year-old Robert Doggart a terrorist. "Doggart is a terrorist, just like ISIS," a group of more than 80 American Muslims chanted outside federal court in Chattanooga. Doggart, who is white, pleaded not guilty at his Monday arraignment to one charge of solicitation to commit a civil rights violation. Authorities believe he spent months gathering weapons and plotting an assault on a small Muslim community self-named "Islamberg" just outside of Hancock, N.Y. Protesters traveled from Islamberg and from other states demanding that Doggart, a resident of Sequatchie County, Tenn., on Signal Mountain and a 2014 congressional candidate, be...

    The Muslims of the Americas (MOA), a Pakistan-linked Islamist group that runs 22 villages across the U.S., is waging a litigation jihad against Martin Mawyer, President of the Christian Action Network. His offense, for which MOA demands $30 million, is exposing the groups extremism in a new book with the help of inside information from a former MOA leader. Readers of Twilight in America get an inside look at MOA, a cultish Sufi Islamist group that follows Pakistani cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani as a representative of Allah. Gilani also leads Jamaat ul-Fuqra, a Pakistani Islamic sect that seeks to...

    There are individuals living in the United States today who have contact with the Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL) and other terrorist groups who have "a desire to conduct an attack" on U.S. soil, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." Johnson would not say how many such individuals the government is aware of, but did say the number is dwarfed by the number of people in Europe intent on carrying out out acts of terror there. And the ability to recruit and communicate through social media has only strengthened the ability to inspire...

    Long War Journal reports that the Obama administration has released Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri from a U.S. prison not from Gitmo, but from a civilian jail after a federal terrorism conviction. Al-Marri is an al-Qaeda operative who was planted as a sleeper in the United States by Khalid Sheikh Mohamed to await instructions on carrying out a second wave of attacks after the 9/11 atrocities against water reservoirs, the New York Stock Exchange, U.S. military academies, and other targets. The Justice Department quietly sprung him on Friday so he could return to his native Qatar, a country the...

    The plan was to gun down law officers in Belgium's streets or at police stations, possibly disguised in police uniforms themselves.But police stopped suspected terrorists in the city of Verviers in a raid Thursday night just before they were about to strike, Belgium's federal prosecutor said Friday. "Could have been hours, certainly no more than a day or two," Eric van der Sypt said.Officers killed two suspects, and wounded and arrested a third in Thursday's operation. Like the Paris killers a week before, the three suspects had been spotted dressed all in black. They carried large duffel bags outside of...

    Lawmakers are now going public with their concerns that we could see a similar terror attack to what we saw in Paris last week.

Patrick Poole is a terrorism and national security analyst for PJ Media, and told KTRH our oil and energy industry is what appeals to the terrorists. Houston is a big sea trade center. You have the oil industry here. And you have a Jamaat ul-Fuqra compound near Houston, Poole...
