    Saudi Arabia is a chief funder and supporter of external jihads: better to send its own zealots out of its borders to fight distant infidels than have them stick around In a move reminiscent of “ancient history,” Saudi Arabia is building a 600-mile-long “Great Wall”—a combined fence and ditch—to separate itself from the Islamic State to the north in Iraq: Plans for the 600-mile wall and ditch Saudi Arabia will build with Iraq in an effort to insulate itself from the chaos engulfing its neighbors. Much of the area on the Iraqi side is now controlled by Isil [the Islamic...

    In response to the growing threat posed by the Islamic State terrorist group, the royal family of Saudi Arabia is having a 600-mile barrier constructed to completely block the Iraqi portion of the Saudi northern border, hoping to prevent ISIS militants from infiltrating the kingdom. The planned fence structure will span the entire distance of the Iraq-Saudi border, from Jordan to Kuwait. The border barrier system will feature five layers of barbed wire fencing, a ditch, a patrol road, 240 rapid response vehicles, underground motion sensors, 40 watchtowers, radar, day/night cameras, seven command centers, 28 communication towers, 32 military response...

    Middle Eastern Kingdom building 600-mile wall and ditch along its border with Iraq in effort to insulate itself from the chaos engulfing its neighbours. When a raiding party from Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant attacked a Saudi border post last week, it was no mere hit on a desert outpost. The jihadists were launching an assault on the new, highest profile effort by Saudi Arabia to insulate itself from the chaos engulfing its neighbours. The Saudis are building a 600-mile-long “Great Wall” - a combined fence and ditch - to separates the country from Iraq to the north....

    The joke’s on them. Don’t the Saudis know that massive border fences do nothing to enhance domestic security and are, in fact, counterproductive? Well, I guess they’ll find out soon enough. According to reports, the Saudi Kingdom is fed up with defending against ISIS raiding parties that routinely cross over the Iraqi border. In order to stave off these assaults, the Saudis are going to build a massive, 600-mile long border fence across the length of the country’s border with Iraq. But that’s not all. The fence will be double layered with a concertina wire barrier in no man’s...

    On July 9, 2004, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled that Israel's security barrier was a violation of international humanitarian law and human rights law. Eleven days later, the United Nations General Assembly voted 150-6 to condemn Israel and demand removal of the barrier. All twenty-five members of the European Union supported the motion.[1] The EU position would not have been so offensive had it not then undertaken an act of stunning hypocrisy. In August 2004, the EU put out tenders for companies to construct a European separation fence to prevent migration into the EU from countries excluded from...

    Fence expected to extend along 900 kilometers of the northern border; state press agency says it will secure 'against infiltrators and smugglers.' Saudi Arabia is building a sophisticated fence along its northern border to secure the desert kingdom “against infiltrators and smugglers,” according to the Saudi Press Agency. The first stage of the border security program was announced by Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud on Friday. The first phase will stretch for 900 kilometers (560 miles) on the country’s northern frontier. The project includes five layers of fencing, reinforced by watch towers, night-vision cameras and radar. Control complexes...

    Saudi Arabia, amid heavy fighting with Shi'ite rebels, has begun erecting another security fence along its border with Yemen. Saudi military sources said the Defense Ministry has overseen a fast-track project to construct a barbed wire fence along most of the 1,600-kilometer border with Yemen. The sources said the project reflected an urgent requirement for a physical barrier to block the flow of thousands of Shi'ite rebels and their supporters from Yemen to the Saudi kingdom. "The infiltration has reached massive proportions," a Saudi source said. "Thousands are crossing into the kingdom."

    As part of its battle against terrorism, Saudi Arabia has recently announced a plan to build an 814-kilometer security fence along its border with Iraq. The project, which will take several years to compete, will also include the construction of military bases and checkpoints along the border. At present, the Saudi border-patrol maintains some 40 bases along the Iraqi border in attempt to stop the infiltration of drug and arms smugglers, wanted terrorists, and illegal immigrants from Iraq into Saudi Arabia.

    CAIRO, Egypt (AP)- In a bid to stop arms smuggling and terror attacks, Saudi and Yemeni officials will meet soon to review plans to build a fence along their frontier, a pan-Arab newspaper reported Monday. Lt. Gen. Talal Anqawi, head of the Saudi border police, told the London-based al-Sharq al-Awsat that the concrete fence would be effective in preventing smuggling and infiltration, especially by car. The newspaper said the meeting was being held to avoid an escalation of Yemeni objections to the fence. Anqawi refused to call it a barrier, and said the fence was well within Saudi territory and...

The nihilistic jihadis, led by self-proclaimed descendant of Prophet Muhammad Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, have already bulldozed or blown up some of the most sacred places in Iraq, and seem bent on killing and destroying anyone or anything that does not measure up to their twisted vision of Islam. Experts say the group, which originally stood for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, but now simply calls itself "Islamic...

They won the near-term policy fight: After a bruising bicameral battle, the House of Representatives narrowly approved an annual spending bill that granted taxpayer support for the risky financial contracts at the heart of the 2008 meltdown. But the bitter feud left Reid and Obama politically embarrassed, while consolidating a burgeoning populist movement within the...

In Hamtramck, one City Council candidate is taking that idea to the extreme. Richard Fabiszak has proposed that Hamtramck build a 12 or 14-foot wall around the city, keeping out Detroiters, and requiring state-issued identification to get in. “That sounds crazy to me,” one Hamtramck resident told WWJ Newsradio 950′s Sandra McNeil. “I never heard of such a thing.

    If no deal is reached this year, then on 1 January, daily tax withholdings will rise by an average of about $4 per person. Any money actually deducted from pay checks will be refunded if a deal is subsequently reached that returns tax rates to 2012 levels. Government spending probably won't change at the start of the new year, since President Obama has considerable discretion over the flow of spending. No one can think that this modest increase in tax withholdings would plunge the economy into a recession, but the Wall Street types seeking to dismantle social security and Medicare...

    The USA gives OWS down-twinkles. Public Policy Polling: The Occupy Wall Street movement is not wearing well with voters across the country. Only 33% now say that they are supportive of its goals, compared to 45% who say they oppose them. That represents an 11 point shift in the wrong direction for the movement’s support compared to a month ago when 35% of voters said they supported it and 36% were opposed. Most notably independents have gone from supporting Occupy Wall Street’s goals 39/34, to opposing them 34/42.

    There were chaotic scenes as protesters resisted police New York police have dismantled the Occupy Wall Street camp in Zuccotti Park and arrested more than 70 people following a raid in the early hours. It was the latest camp to be cleared by police in US cities in recent days. In a Tuesday morning news conference, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg defended the eviction, saying there had been a conflict between protecting public health and safety and the protesters' First Amendment rights. For the city of New York, this has been a balancing act all along between the constitutional right...

    RWBN: If you want to support your local “millionaire/billionaire” then you need to keep Democrats in office, according to new government data. Under a Democrat-held House of Representatives, Democrat Senate and a Democrat president Wall Street profits have soared. Obama has his “followers” believing he is on the side of the “99%” when it comes to the “Occupy Wall Street” movement and against the Big “Fat Cat” Bankers on Wall Street, but Wall Street profits have soared from $77 billion under all eight years of G.W Bush to a whopping $85 Billion in just two years under the “divider” in...

    America's top central banker "sympathizes" with the Occupy Wall Street protesters and thinks many of their frustrations with the sluggish economy are "understandable." But there's one complaint Ben Bernanke does take issue with: the backlash against the Federal Reserve. "I think that the concerns about the Fed are based on misconceptions" The Occupy Wall Street protests, which started in New York in September and have since spread around the world, are known for their ever-evolving and diverse list of grievances. Among them are the common themes of distaste for the banking system and frustration with government. With that in mind,...

    There’s a new fat cat in "South Park" tonight: Eric Cartman, with a nod to the Occupy Wall Street protests, will dub himself the newest denizen of the 1% club. "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are the latest to opine on the movement with a new episode that has the roly-poly cartoon character flubbing his school’s fitness test. His failure dilutes the scores of the other elementary school students, resulting in more gym exercises for everyone. Cue mass resentment from the 99% and first backlash and then melancholy for Cartman. Sound familiar?

    The face of the Occupy Dallas movement we've come to know over the past few weeks shows protesters angry over wealth and upset with big banks. Now a convicted sex offender has overshadowed those demonstrators. Richard Wayne Armstrong, 24, is charged with sexually assaulting a 14-year-old runaway from Garland at the protest group's downtown campsite. Police said Armstrong had been part of the group living in the tent city near City Hall, but he failed to register as a sex offender in Dallas County.
