    The United States Department of Justice says a resident of Oklahoma was arrested for fraud, lying to the FBI and for not disclosing that he attended an al Qaeda training camp. Naif Abdulaziz M. Alfallaj, 34, is a citizen of Saudi Arabia and a current resident of Weatherford, Oklahoma. The FBI says he attended an al Qaeda training camp in Afghanistan in late 2000. "Based on a criminal complaint signed in the Western District of Oklahoma and unsealed [Tuesday], Alfallaj was taken into custody by the FBI without incident on February 5," the announcement said.

    A co-founder of the terror group Hamas died on Tuesday, three weeks after accidentally shooting himself in the face while cleaning his weapon, an official said. Imad al-Alami, 62, was “examining his personal weapon in his home” on Jan. 9 when the gun went off and a bullet struck him in the face, Hamas said. He had been hospitalized in Gaza until his death, according to the Jerusalem Post.
  • Trump's Exec Order Protecting the US From Foreign Terrorist Entry; Initial Section 11 Report

    On March 6, 2017, President Donald J. Trump issued Executive Order 13780, Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States, which declared that “it is the policy of the United States to protect its citizens from terrorist attacks, including those committed by foreign nationals,” and directed a series of actions to enhance the security of the American people. The actions directed by Executive Order 13780 have—among other things—raised the baseline for the vetting and screening of foreign nationals, improved our ability to prevent the entry of malicious actors, and enhanced the security of the American people.

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R) praised President Trump on Monday for his tweet calling for an end to aid to Pakistan, telling Trump he "couldn't agree more" with Trump's assertion that the country shelters terrorists on the run from U.S. forces. In a tweet Monday afternoon, Paul responded to Trump's first tweet of 2018 in which the president sharply criticized Pakistan's government. "I couldn’t agree more. I’ve been fighting to end aid to Pakistan for years and will again lead the charge in the Senate. Let’s make this happen @realDonaldTrump," Paul tweeted. I couldn’t agree more. I’ve been fighting to...

The church was being guarded by police in the run-up to Orthodox Christmas celebrations next week. A picture of the gunman's corpse showed a bearded man...

    Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar says the group will shut down the U.S. embassy in Israel once it “liberates Palestine”. Senior Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar recently threatened that the terrorist group will shut down the U.S. embassy in Israel once it “liberates Palestine”. In an interview on Al-Jazeera on December 17, which was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the Hamas leader also made clear that the group "would not relinquish a single gun, not even a single bullet." “Annihilation will be the fate not only of the Jews, but also of their helpers and of the people...

    Authorities have arrested a 26-year-old man connected to the Islamic State (ISIS) who was allegedly plotting a terrorist attack in San Francisco over the Christmas holiday. The FBI reports that they arrested Everitt Aaron Jameson, a truck driver from Modesto, California. He referred to himself as Abdallah adu Everitt ibn Gordon. He is charged specifically with attempting to supply support to a foreign terrorist organization and he has posted pro-ISIS and pro-terrorist posts on Facebook. His intended target was San Francisco’s famous Pier 39. Jameson was apparently unknowingly chatting with an undercover FBI agent and was arrested earlier this week. A search...

    Riyad al-Malki, the Palestinian Authority (PA) official in charge of foreign affairs, on Wednesday accused Washington of "threatening" member countries of the UN General Assembly ahead of a vote on rejecting President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Malki said, according to the AFP news agency, that American officials were "committing another mistake when they have distributed this famous letter trying to threaten countries, (and) threaten their sovereign decision to choose how to vote." He was speaking at a press conference with Turkish Foreign Ministry Mevlut Cavusoglu in Istanbul, shortly before both men left for New York....

    Before Akayed Ullah returned home to New York from his native Bangladesh, and tried to blow himself up with a pipe bomb in a crowded Manhattan subway station, he had one last thing to do — an all-night bus ride by himself to help Rohingya refugees. After visiting relatives here in the capital city, Dhaka, he traveled across the country, slept in a mosque and under a tree, and passed out a few hundred dollars of medicine in the crowded refugee camps. “When he left, he seemed happy,” said his mother-in-law, Mahfuza Akhter. “But when he returned, he was so...

    Following the demand of Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, the leaders of the coalition parties on Sunday evening approved the Yisrael Beytenu party’s bill mandating the death penalty for terrorists. The bill will be brought to a preliminary vote in the Knesset plenum. MK Robert Ilatov, Yisrael Beytenu Parliamentary Group Chairman, said, "Today is a historic day in the State of Israel. After years in which the Yisrael Beytenu party has been promoting the death penalty for terrorists and after it was rejected by the Knesset and the government, today the death penalty bill for terrorists has finally been approved by...

    A Muslim basketball player at Garden City Community College in Kansas has been kicked off the team but now the left is saying his civil rights were violated. Samir claims he was dismissed by the team after he made a stance on the National Anthem. A fan decided he had seen enough of that anthem stance, a confrontation followed. 19-year-old Rasool Samir refused to show respect for the National Anthem during a game. His team left the court, a big enough show of disrespect. Samir was not willing to do even that. The Muslim teen kept shooting baskets while the...

    1.It Was Not a “Lone Wolf” Attack In addition to a potential accomplice that has since been arrested, an image of an ISIS flag on a cellphone near the location of the terrorist attack in NY surfaced two months ago. According to the police complaint against Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, the 29-year-old began planning the attack close to a year ago. The complaint asserts that Saipov watched and was inspired by ISIS videos. One of the two cellphones that were found in the truck had close to 90 violent ISIS propaganda videos on it, some with information on how to make...

    After the tragic terrorist attack yesterday in NYC (where I am now), leaders were quick to say it was an act of terror and the perpetrator was a coward. Both terms are persuasion mistakes. I’ll tell you why. Terror is what the bad guys want. If we label the outcome as terror, we give them their win, and we remind the public to stay scared. Calling a terrorist a coward might sound like a powerful insult, but it isn’t persuasive. No terrorist views sacrificing his life for his cause as cowardly. The word bounces right off. To make an impact,...

    The New York Times claimed there was “no single reason” for Sayfullo Saipov’s decision to drive a truck into more than 20 people in New York City Tuesday. TheNYT attributed his attack more to a lack of opportunity and financial trouble in a Wednesday profile of the terrorist, even though Saipov yelled “Allahu Akbar” while being apprehended by police and had a note pledging allegiance to the Islamic State.

    The wife of the Uzbeki national accused of murdering eight people in Manhattan denied any knowledge of her husband’s carefully planned rampage, according to a report. A person who spoke to Sayfullo Saipov’s 24-year-old wife, Nozima Odilova, on Tuesday evening said she seemed “shocked and horrified and scared and sad” after being grilled by the FBI, a source told the Washington Post. At the time, the feds were at her Paterson, NJ, house, where they encouraged her to cooperate to make sure no one else was harmed. Meanwhile, neighbor Carlos Batista recounted that Saipov had occasionally driven a Home Depot...
