    I’m usually an eager relayer of well-founded theories and clues which help get the truth out when politically-correct authorities try to hide or minimize the Islamic identity of jihad attackers, but in the case of Andreas Lubitz I must firmly state that so far (as of 3:00 am EST, U.S.), people are posting only completely unsubstantiated, non-credible reports that he was a convert to Islam. In the early absence of much solid information about the 28-year-old pilot’s personal life the internet is, of course, going wild with speculation about Lubitz’ motives for deliberately crashing the plane full of innocent people...

    Seven people have been killed in an attack on a hotel popular with government officials in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, officials say. The African Union mission to Somalia, AMISOM, confirmed to Al Jazeera that there had been an explosion followed by gunfire at the Makka al-Mukarama hotel on Friday. An AMISOM spokesman said al-Shabab fighters got out of a car that then exploded. The armed men then entered the hotel and gunfire was heard. The fighters took hostages, the spokesman added.

    European media report that German authorities have found “importance evidence” in Andreas Lubitz’s home. Lubitz was the co-pilot of Germanwings flight 9595, that he purposefully crashed in the French Alps. Although the German police don’t want to share any details at this moment, they say that the evidence explains why he committed this horrendous mass murder. In the meantime, it has become clear that Lubitz had serious psychological issues. He was hospitalized in a mental hospital back in 2009. When he was 27 years old, Lubitz apparently suffered from regular panic attacks. He was still being treated by a psychiatrist...

Translation from German: All evidence indicates that the copilot of Airbus machine in his six-months break during his training as a pilot in Germanwings, converted to Islam and subsequently either by the order of “radical”, ie. devout Muslims , or received the order from the book of terror, the Quran, on his own accord decided to carry out this mass murder.

    JERUSALEM -- Egypt is now on the front lines of the battle against ISIS, and some of its leaders are making new accusations about the Obama administration's war on terror. They accuse the United States of playing a double game, fighting terrorists abroad while meeting with them at home. A recent White House meeting between President Barack Obama and Muslim leaders sent shockwaves through the Middle East, specifically in Israel and Egypt. The cause of the uproar: the group included leaders with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. "We just don't understand because we know the history of the Muslim Brothers,"...

    A Dean at Cornell University proclaimed on camera he’d give the green light for an ISIS club on campus in which actual members conducted training exercises. I’m curious if this demonstration of humanitarianism would be preempted by recent video of ISIS soldiers beating, raping, torturing, mutilating, and beheading countless men, women and children in the name of Allah? I also wonder if American Christians would enjoy an equally enthusiastic welcome if similar proof existed of their ranks committing mass atrocities. Oh, that’s right, Christians or Jews really aren’t welcome because the Crusades, which ended over 700 years ago, were a...

Bowe Bergdahl have tried to plug back into their old terror networks, a government official familiar with the intelligence told Fox News, describing it as an attempt to "re-engage." The new allegations come as Bergdahl now faces desertion charges, and as the one-year deal governing the former Guantanamo detainees' supervised release in the Gulf nation of Qatar is set to expire -- at the end of May. The director of the Defense Intelligence Agency recently told Congress that, after that expiration, all his officers can do...

    The news brings us a daily reminder of why the Obama administration is inept and lacking in basic common sense when it comes to its most important tasks: defeating the Islamic State and keeping Iran from getting nuclear weapons and dominating the region. The last, I think it is clear, is not even a problem to be addressed. The administration appears content to work in tandem with Iran in Iraq, let the Houthis depose the elected government in Yemen (where they have, according to news reports, looted intelligence files “exposing names of informants and plans for U.S.-backed counter-terrorism operations”), leave...

    The co-pilot of Germanwings Flight 9525 appears to have deliberately crashed the plane after he was left alone in the cockpit, according to a French prosecutor. The captain was intentionally locked outside minutes before the A320 crashed into an alpine mountain ridge, French Prosecutor Brice Robin said Thursday. Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, a 28-year-old German national, was silent throughout the plane’s descent and was alive at the point of impact, according to the prosecutor. Mr. Robin’s conclusions are drawn from the plane’s cockpit voice recorder, recovered at the crash site in the French Alps late Tuesday and analyzed by French accident...

    Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who abandoned his post in Afghanistan and was held captive for five years by the Taliban, was charged Wednesday by the U.S. military with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy and could get life in prison if convicted. The misbehavior charge could land Bergdahl in prison for life, though some legal experts said a lengthy sentence was unlikely. He also could be dishonorably discharged and forfeit all his pay if convicted on either charge. Next, an Article 32 hearing — similar to a civilian grand jury proceeding — will be held at Fort Sam Houston in...

    In a statement ABC’s Jon Karl found “astounding,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest continued to call the United States’s activities in Yemen as a “model” for counter-terrorism — even as the Arabic nation’s government collapses and international terrorist groups move in. As al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula gained power in Yemen’s north over the past few years, the Obama administration responded with a relatively hands-off approach. The U.S. government helped build up, support and train government forces fighting the terrorists while providing air reconnaissance and, occasionally, drone strikes against high-value targets in the country. It was a plan that...

    This is a disturbing statistic. Federal energy records indicate that there is an attack – either physical or cyber – on the United States power grid, on average, every three to four days. But before we get into too much of a panic, this doesn’t sound like some sort of concerted terrorist strategy. Still, a definite cause for concern. About once every four days, part of the nation’s power grid — a system whose failure could leave millions in the dark — is struck by a cyber or physical attack, a USA TODAY analysis of federal energy records finds.Although...

Stendal denies any allegation of leadership in FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia). He said in a recent Facebook video, “Somebody set a trap for me, and I walked into it. They...

Souleymane Ali, a local trader, told Reuters that the militants took 506 women and children, and killed about 50 of them. “We don’t know if they killed others after leaving, but they took the rest with them,” he added.

The two Democrats immediately sidestepped the question and started reciting their talking points in favor of Hillary. But O'Reilly kept coming back to the fact that nothing they were talking about was an accomplishment.

At least six Americans were present at a Philippine command post during the ill-fated January raid and supplied Philippine forces with surveillance data collected by U.S. aircraft, the investigation found. One of the Americans went so far as to order a Philippine army general to call in artillery fire, though the general angrily refused, investigators found.

Many Israelis seem to be counting on some deeply wished-for love from the current U.S. Administration. What they may...
  • (Breitbart’s) Dr. Sebastian Gorka: Iran vs. ISIS is ‘Coke vs. Pepsi’ Jihad, And We’re RC Cola

    Discussing the rise of Iran in the battle against ISIS with host Clayton Morris, Dr. Gorka argued that, from the perspective of the West, a Shiite caliphate in the Middle East would be just as much, if not more, of a threat as a Sunni caliphate. “Iran is just fighting for the same kind of hegemonic position in the Middle East as the Sunni extremists like ISIS,” he explained, “[Iran] is just building, building, building in the vacuum that we created when we pulled our troops out [of Iraq].” Dr. Gorka warned against supporting Iran’s intervention to weaken the Islamic...

    CANBERRA, Australia - The Australian government on Wednesday re-listed Ansar al-Islam, Lashkar-e Jhangvi and Jaish-e-Mohammad, from Pakistan, and the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan as terrorist organisations, Efe news agency reported. These organisations, which have been listed since 2003, would continue to be listed for another three years, according to a statement from the Australian Attorney-General's Department. Under this measure, it remains a criminal offence to direct the activities of, be a member of, recruit for, train for or receive training from these groups. It would also be a criminal offence to get funds to, from, or for, provide support to,...

    No matter what the excuse, deporting Malik rather than charging him with serious offences is counter to the government’s tough on terrorism platform Although the man was arrested in an alleged terror plot, he has not been charged. The Canadian government is in the process of ordering him deported to his native Pakistan and if that is all there is, so much for the government’s hardline on terrorism. Jahanzeb Malik, 33, was arrested on Monday after a six-month investigation. Malik, who came to Canada as a student in 2004, later married a Canadian and became a permanent resident. He first...

    Since the beginning of the most recent uprising by the cowardly Islamic world, we have repeatedly been told by their apologists that Muslim attacks on the civilized world are merely a continuation of their response to the Crusades. They insist the Crusades are the moral equivalent and justification for jihad. The accompanying video, featuring Bill Warner PhD, demolishes this lie in a well-constructed 5 minutes presentation. Dr. Warner uses simple and effective graphics showing us the HUGE disparity in the number of battles initiated by the Christian Crusaders and those made by the loathsome Islamists since the 7th century. The...

    It’s not your imagination. Global terrorism, dominated by Muslim extremist groups, is by far the worst it’s been in modern times. In the past six years, the United States has added 21 names to its list of foreign terrorist organizations: all but one of them radical Muslim groups. That’s more than the previous 10 years combined. At the same time, the number of terrorist acts has shattered previous records. Experts predict data for 2014, which is still being compiled, will likely reflect more than 15,000 terrorist attacks: a vast increase over 2013—which was already the deadliest year for global terrorism...

    While American leadership on the Islamic State terrorist group has been marked by reluctance and lethargy, the response of its Australian ally has been strikingly different.The anodyne words of the Obama Administration in describing the terror threat have been conspicuously absent in the highest levels of the Australian government. The latter has demonstrated repeated willingness to identify the enemy, with repeated references to “Islamist” and “the Muslim community”, and is yet to use the term “violent extremism”. This comes amid reports that Prime Minister Tony Abbott canvassed unilateral action against ISIS in Iraq with 3500 ground troops, with Australia’s leading...

During his speech to firefighters and paramedics Cruz addressed the Obama administration’s foreign policy.

    Dr. Ahmad Al-Faraj of Saudi paper Al-Jazira criticized the Obama administration for its support of Islamist movements (such as the Muslim Brotherhood) during the “Arab Spring,” while praising Netanyahu for opposing the White House position on Iran. He wrote: Since Obama is the godfather of the prefabricated revolutions in the Arab world, and since he is the ally of political Islam, [which is] the caring mother of [all] the terrorist organizations, and since he is working to sign an agreement with Iran that will come at the expense of the U.S.’s longtime allies in the Gulf, I am very glad...

    The media elite are in major spin mode today, trying to claim that Islam is really “The Religion of Peace” and not a medievalist death cult quite similar to Nazism in its zeal for conquest and destruction of Britain, France, the United States, and the Western world. Clearly, Islam’s attack on Parisian cartoonists and satirists won’t be the definitive wakeup call that ends the media elite’s ability to carry water for these monsters. But, what will? I operate under the assumption that most people are lazy and are primarily concerned with their own households and what’s for dinner tonight or...
