    Irem Aktas, a member of Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party, posted a tweet today, reading "I wish that the wounded Israeli tourists were dead." She deleted the account shortly after posting it, but not in time to prevent a strong backlash over her lack of sympathy. Aktas, who is responsible for the party's digital communications and holds the party's Women's Media & Publicity Chair, also wrote "when Israel was attacking your Muslim brothers, why didn't you say anything," i24 reports. A spokesperson for the Israeli Foreign Ministry said, "We are looking into the issue with the Turkish Foreign Ministry....

    Three truck bombs killed up to 60 people and injured more than 80 in the town of Tell Tamer in Syria's northeastern Al Hasakah province on Thursday, a spokesman for the Syrian Kurdish YPG has told Reuters. The blasts struck near a Kurdish militia forces field hospital and in the crowded Souk Al Jumla market square, where the majority of the fatalities occurred. Most of the affected people were civilians, but there were some Kurdish and Assyrian self-defense fighters among them. The vehicles were allegedly packed with large amounts of explosives, which also caused significant damage to nearby buildings and...

    Five people have been killed killed and dozens injured after a car drove into crowds of tourists and caught fire in Tiananmen Square. Beijing government officials are unsure if the incident, which occurred at the site of 1989 pro-democracy protests, was a terrorist attack. A police statement described how the car veered off the road at the north entrance of the famous square and crossed barriers before bursting into flames. Three people who were traveling in the vehicle have all died in addition to a female tourist from the Philippines, and a male tourist from southern Guandong province. Around...

    KABUL, Afghanistan – A suicide bomber rammed his car into a U.S. convoy in Kabul on Thursday, killing at least 15 people including two American soldiers and four civilian contractors, officials said. The brazen attack made May the deadliest month this year for coalition forces. Cmdr. Bill Speaks, a spokesman for the U.S. Defense Secretary, confirmed that the two soldiers from the NATO military coalition who were killed in the bombing were Americans. He would not comment on the nationalities of the civilian contractors. It was the bloodiest attack in the Afghan capital since March 9, when suicide bombers struck...

    Malki Roth, 15 was murdered, along with her friend MIchal Raziel and 13 other innocent civilians, in the suicide bombing at the Sbarro Restaurant in Jerusalem in August, 2001. They had decided, as teenagers will, to have some pizza. Another young married woman, also enjoying a summer break at the restaurant, has been unconscious since the bombing. Their photogenic murderess, Ahlam Al-Tamimi, presented the news on Palestinian Authority TV that same evening. Upon being told that eight children were among the victims, not three as she had originally thought, she broke into a wide smile. Tamimi received 16 life sentences...

    President Barack Obama left Afghanistan on Wednesday, targeting a foreigners' housing compound with a suicide car bomb and militants disguised as women in an assault that killed at least seven people. It was the second major assault in Kabul in less than three weeks and highlighted the Taliban's continued ability to strike in the heavily guarded capital even when security had been tightened for Obama's visit and Wednesday's anniversary of the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in neighboring Pakistan. Obama arrived at Bagram Air Field late Tuesday, then traveled to Kabul by helicopter for a meeting with President...

    KABUL, Afghanistan -A suicide bomber hiding explosives in his turban assassinated former Afghan President Burhanuddin Rabbani, who headed a government peace council trying to negotiate with Taliban insurgents. Four of Rabbani's bodyguards also died and a key presidential adviser was wounded in the attack at Rabbani's Kabul home Tuesday. The attack dealt a harsh blow to efforts to bring peace in Afghanistan after a decade of war. Rabbani's death also came days after a daytime assault by insurgents on the U.S. Embassy and NATO headquarters in the capital, deepening a sense of insecurity in the country. President Hamid Karzai cut...

    I looked at the copyright list, and I should be able to post the title and link, but if I put the title of the "news"paper in here I can't if I am doing something wrong, please delete the posting, or correct it if you can. Please read this article about a graduate student from Pakistan who is completing his PhD dissertation in the hope of saving lives of victims of homicide bombers. It was on the front page of today's newspaper. It's not a very good newspaper, which is probably why they don't want their articles posted, but...

    A television advert for an Israeli cellphone firm showing soldiers playing football over the West Bank barrier has sparked cries of bad taste and prompted Arab lawmakers on Sunday to demand it be taken off air. The jaunty commercial for Israel's biggest mobile phone company Cellcom makes light of Palestinian suffering and shows how far Israelis fail to understand their neighbours, critics said. The company stood by the ad, however. It shows a ball falling on an Israeli army jeep from the far side of a towering wall. A game ensues, back and forth with the unseen Palestinians after a...

The vice president spoke on the record with the pool about the attack -- speaking, seated on a desk, in his Airstream, silver-skinned on the outside and leather-seated and wood-paneled on the inside, cabin set up inside the C-17 military cargo transport that had ferried him to Pakistan and Afghanistan and out as well.</p>

    SUICIDE bombing is a legitimate tool of war, regarded by religious scholars as “the highest form of martyrdom”, Abu Hamza al-Masri told an Old Bailey jury yesterday. The radical Muslim cleric, who is facing charges of soliciting murder and inciting racial hatred, said that he condoned suicide attacks if they were the only way that Muslims had of defending themselves. Abu Hamza sought to explain remarks that he had made in a video of a lecture delivered in Luton in 1997. Asked, during his second day of evidence, about the legitimacy of “martyrdom operations”, he said: “If it is the...

    Former justice department prosecutor and intelligence expert John Loftus says that Israel is unable to thwart Iran's nuclear projects through military action – but that there is an alternative. "Israel only has a few option and striking back is not one of 'em," Loftus told Israel National Radio's Tovia Singer. "The F-16-IL version that Israel possesses only has a combat radius of about 2,200 kilometers and you would need about 3,000 to hit the hard targets in Iran. Iran saw what [Israel] did to the Osarik reactor in Iraq and have spread their nuclear development stuff all over the country...

    AMMAN, Jordan (AP) - Al-Qaida in Iraq claimed Friday that four Iraqis, including a husband and wife, carried out the suicide bombings against three Amman hotels, and police arrested 120 Jordanians and Iraqis in the hunt for anyone who might have aided them. If their involvement is confirmed, the husband and wife would be the first married couple yet known to take part in a suicide bombing, a top Israeli counterterrorism expert said. Thousands of Jordanians protested in Amman for a second straight day, condemning the attacks that killed 57 people, excluding the bombers, and denouncing al-Qaida in Iraq's leader,...
