    To assess the scope and nature of terrorism in 2016, the Los Angeles Times sought to chart the worldwide toll of deaths and injuries in a single month. From government and police reports, terrorism databases, news accounts and their own independent reporting, Times journalists in the U.S. and around the globe compiled a record of every fatal act of terrorism during the 30 days of April. They confirmed 858 deaths in 27 countries. An additional 1,385 were injured. Recent attacks in Paris and Brussels, San Bernardino and Orlando, Fla., have left Americans and Europeans feeling besieged. But the data show...

    Obama: ‘We’ are to blame, not Islamic terrorism, for massacre Omar Mateen called the cops to pledge his fealty to ISIS as he was carrying out his mass murderer in Orlando early Sunday morning. Twelve hours later, the president of the United States declared that “we have no definitive assessment on the motivation” of Omar Mateen but that “we know he was a person filled with hate.”So I guess the president thinks Mateen didn’t mean it?Here again, and horribly, we have an unmistakable indication that Obama finds it astonishingly easy to divorce himself from a reality he doesn’t like — the...

    (CNN) — Investigators are aware of multiple additional ISIS plots in Europe possibly linked to the Paris and Brussels networks that are in various stages of planning. A combination of electronic intercepts, human sources and database tracking indicates several possible targets had been picked out by the ISIS operatives over the last few months since the Paris attacks, according to U.S. counterterrorism officials. Since the attacks earlier this week, information found in a raided apartment, including maps, indicated other potential targets had been chosen, one of the sources said. According to a senior Belgian counter-terrorism official, investigators believe the Brussels...

    A federal judge in New York ruled last week that the Iranian regime is liable for damages in the 9/11 terror attacks in 2001. The ruling by George Benjamin Daniels, Judge of the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, ordered Iran to pay almost $11 billion in compensation to families of victims killed on 9/11 and to insurance companies who covered those suffering damages in the attack. The Iranian government failed to defend itself in the lawsuit, and the ruling is a default judgment. According to court documents publicized by Asharq al-Awsat, a London-based Arabic-language newspaper,...

Such acts of pitiless slaughter are the direct result of a pervasive Palestinian infrastructure In the last week, my country, Israel, including our capital, the Holy City of Jerusalem, have come under an unprecedented wave of Palestinian terror. A week ago, Eitam and Na’ama Henkin were brutally executed by Palestinian terrorists point-blank in their car.

    The recent spate of “lone wolf” terrorist attacks both here and in Canada seem to have come out of nowhere. And it’s clear that they have left Americans and Canadians as sitting ducks. Simply by using the Internet, ISIS has encouraged “lone wolf” individuals. These “wolves” have initiated attacks on their own with no planning or coordination with others and without leaving a trail of clues about their intentions. Law enforcement authorities and our government are not well suited to defend against such individual terror strikes. As Israel has learned about such attacks, there are just too many targets to...

    The West thought it was winning the battle against jihadist terrorism. It should think again. A FEW months ago Barack Obama declared that al-Qaeda was “on the path to defeat”. Its surviving members, he said, were more concerned for their own safety than with plotting attacks on the West. Yet the inconvenient truth is that, in the past 18 months, despite the relentless pummelling it has received and the defeats it has suffered, al-Qaeda and its jihadist allies have staged an extraordinary comeback. The terrorist network now holds sway over more territory and is recruiting more fighters than at any...

Before him it was the Underpants Bomber. And the Fort Hood assassin. And before them an assortment of murderous lunatics, including the first World Trade Center bombers and the perpetrators of 9/11.

    LONDON - Extremists are grooming children and teenagers to plot terrorist attacks against Britain, the director of the domestic spy agency said Monday. But Jonathan Evans, making his first public speech since becoming director-general of Britain's MI5 agency in April, said vital resources needed to tackle terrorism are being diverted to counter the espionage threat from Russia and China. "Terrorists are methodically and intentionally targeting young people and children in this country," Evans said, according to a text of his speech in Manchester, England. "They are radicalizing, indoctrinating and grooming young, vulnerable people to carry out acts of terrorism." Testimony...

    Chertoff should take a deep breath The Montreal Gazette: Editorial Published: Friday, July 13, 2007 Perhaps Michael Chertoff should take an antacid. Certainly he should be careful what he says before he causes Canadians to need a Tylenol. The U.S. Homeland Security chief has been popping off about his suspicions, hunches and worries, but if he has facts to back up any of this, he's keeping those to himself. Chertoff told the Chicago Tribune this week that he has a "gut feeling" that the U.S. faces an increased risk of terror attack this summer. The next day, he said...

    LONDON — A Scottish house had been used as a makeshift bomb factory to carry out the terror attacks in London and Scotland, British media reported Thursday. Meanwhile, a subway derailed in the capital during rush-hour, raising jitters in the wake of the foiled terror plots and the Saturday's anniversary of the deadly 2005 suicide bombings. Police said the train derailment on London's Central line was unrelated to the terror plots. At least one person was injured in the accident, which was reportedly caused because of an obstruction on the tracks. Britain's terrorism threat level has been lowered following the...

    LONDON (AP) -- The threat of homegrown terrorists attacking Britain is greater now than any time since the Sept. 11 attacks, a British Sunday newspaper reported, citing a leaked intelligence document. More than 2,000 British-based Islamic terrorists are believed to be plotting attacks, according to a government threat assessment prepared this month that The Sunday Telegraph said it had seen. "The scale of al-Qaida's ambitions toward attacking the U.K. and the number of U.K. extremists prepared to participate in attacks are even greater than we previously judged," the newspaper quoted the document as saying. It said the document was being...

    Twice as many Islamist terror plots have been disrupted since the July 7 suicide bombings as has previously been made public, Britain's security services insist. A further six plots, which have been kept secret until now for security reasons, had been planned by groups across Britain since the London Underground and bus bombings in 2005. Whitehall sources refused to provide precise details on security grounds. The revelation demonstrates the scale of the task facing MI5 and the police, who are now discovering or disrupting some kind of terrorist plot in the United Kingdom every six weeks. Up to 12 plots...

    Excerpt - Intelligence agencies have been warned that al Qaeda may be planning to attack air and rail travel in Europe in actions that may occur during the busy holiday travel season, CBS News has learned exclusively. In separate interviews with Arab and other intelligence sources, CBS News has been told that the warnings come from interrogations of al Qaeda suspects who recently left Afghanistan and Pakistan. "One suspect said plans for repeating the Heathrow attempt (a reference to the failed 'liquid bomb' plot interrupted in August) were all prepared. It is now a matter of taking action," said one...

    Israel's war with Hizbullah guerrillas opened the door to accusations on both sides of war crimes. But can anyone be prosecuted? Israeli aircraft and artillery killed more than 850 Lebanese during the 34-day conflict, most of them civilians, and left a moonscape of ruin. Hizbullah pummeled northern Israel with thousands of rockets that killed 39 civilians among the total Israeli war dead of 159. Now human rights groups in Lebanon are collecting evidence that could be used in cases filed under a legal principle known as universal jurisdiction, which says that war crimes are so serious they can be prosecuted...

    RABAT, Aug 31 (Reuters) - Morocco said on Thursday the number of arrests it has made after cracking a militant Islamist cell that planned attacks on government targets has risen to 56, including four women, in five towns across the country.

It was a woman," Interior Minister Chakib Benmoussa told a rare news conference....

    Intelligence analysts are urging a heightened awareness by citizens of the US and Canada, especially within the transportation sectors, schools, and in locations beyond those cities commonly named as potential targets of al Qaeda attacks. 1 September 2006: In classic al Qaeda fashion, As Sahab Productions, the media (propaganda) arm of al Qaeda announced yesterday that a new video featuring the terror group's second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahiri along with Adam Gadahn, also known as Azzam the American (or Azzam al-Amriki), will be released shortly.

    LONDON (Reuters) - The threat of an al Qaeda attack from the sea remains an "absolute concern" and could intensify as operations on land are countered, the U.S. Navy's top commander in the Gulf told Reuters on Monday. Since the September 11 attacks on the United States, governments and security experts have repeatedly voiced fears about the vulnerability of the maritime industry, which carries more than 90 percent of the world's traded goods. "I don't think there is any question that as we thwart their attacks and disrupt their operations on land, that we should expect them to turn to...
