  • Patriarch Kirill Urges All Countries to Unite in Sacred War on Terrorism

    Interfax ^ | 10/18/16
    London, October 18, Interfax - The war on terrorism is a sacred war, and must be a common cause of all countries, not just Russia, Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia told a press conference at London's Luton Airport after his visit to the United Kingdom. "I regret that my words were misread. I never spoke about a sacred war in Syria, I spoke about a sacred war on terrorism. I think very many victims of terrorism in Europe could subscribe to these words. Suffice to recall all that happened comparatively recently in France, in Belgium," the patriarch said,...

    "Here we go: Centcom analysts who took negative view of progress against ISIS were told in e-mails to "cut it out" I thought we already knew this, or at least knew the basics of it - defense analysts at Centcom were apparently pressured by their superiors to take a rosier view of the progress against ISIS than was actually warranted. Who precisely wanted the books cooked to suggest things were going well is the key question, which this story doesn't answer. Great thinking, though, by the guilty parties in lying to the public about a jihadi threat, knowing that one...

    s it possible to really win the war on terror? Are there really reasons for Jihad that can be understood and countered by the West? Is military or martial action the last-best chance for ending the threat posed by Islam? In his new and controversial book, Babylon’s Covert War, author J H White answers these and other complex questions related to the global fight against radical Jihad. Islam has a strategy that was incorporated by Muhammad in the 7th Century that has continued in various forms over a multitude of battlefields be they military, social, or political. During the emergence...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton brings a quarter-century of public service to her potential presidential campaign, but it’s her most recent job as secretary of state for President Obama — overseeing relations with Russia, handling the terrorist attack in Benghazi and negotiating over the war on terrorism — that could come back to haunt her. Many of Mr. Obama’s current political problems also could affect Mrs. Clinton, including the handling of Russian President Vladimir Putin and the decision not to slap the terrorist label on Boko Haram, a group responsible for kidnapping hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls last month. Even the Keystone XL...

In an interview with the Global Times [ link at site], Zhang Xun, China's ambassador to Syria said that Beijing's embassy has increasingly been caught in the cross-hairs of fighting between rebel and government forces in recent months... Zhang said that in another attack last month, Syrian rebels fired mortar shells at President Bashar al-Assad's motorcade. They missed the Syrian leader but hit a building that was located just 10 meters from the Chinese...

    A former senior producer for MSNBC came out with harsh words for his former network Sunday. Writing at the far-left AlterNet, Jeff Cohen - the former senior producer of MSNBC's Donahue show - said, "When it comes to issues of U.S. militarism and spying, the allegedly 'progressive' MSNBC often seems closer to the 'official network of the Obama White House' than anything resembling an independent channel": Had McCain or Romney defeated Obama and implemented the exact same policies, treating whistleblowers like Manning and Snowden as foreign espionage agents, one would expect MSNBC hosts to be loudly denouncing the Republican abuses...

    CBS's Sharyl Attkisson is apparently viewed by network executives as "wading dangerously close to advocacy" in her coverage of the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, as Politico's Dylan Byers asserted in a Wednesday item. Byers reported that "Attkisson can't get some of her stories on the air, and is thus left feeling marginalized and underutilized." Attkisson's minute-long report about the House Oversight Committee's latest hearing on the attack on Wednesday's CBS This Morning was actually the first time since November 23, 2012 that the journalist reported about the story on air, according a search...

    On the eve of Sunday's Academy Awards presentation, former George W. Bush CIA Director Michael Hayden has made a strong statement about the hunt for Osama bin Laden film "Zero Dark Thirty." In an interview to be aired on CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS Sunday, Hayden said, "If you look at the movie, it was artistically true, not factually true. Artistically, it portrayed the CIA interrogation program, but factually it was overwrought and inaccurate" (video follows with transcript and commentary): Bush CIA Director: 'Zero Dark Thirty' Portrayal of Interrogations 'Not Factually True' FAREED ZAKARIA, HOST: Did enhanced interrogation techniques, specifically waterboarding,...

    A group of Israeli-Americans has filed suit against the Obama administration, alleging that U.S. aid money to the Palestinian Authority funds terrorist activities. The lawsuit charges that federal aid money directed to the Palestinian Authority ultimately ends up in the hands of Hamas and other militant groups committed to war against Israel. Hamas is designed as a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. government. The lawsuit charges that the State Department is ignoring congressionally-mandated safeguards to keep money out of the hands of such entities. "The American people are opposed to terror and do not want to fund it via...

    DEFENCE MANAGEMENT JOURNAL ^ | Winter 2012 | Nitsana Darshan-Leitner
    The widely held assumption that terrorists are merely violent fanatics might be accurate for many of the terror organisations' low-level operatives. Nonetheless, a terror group's leader sees subsequent acts of terror as a way to impress their financial patrons and their ensnared populations. On a day-to-day level, terror groups are primarily financial organisations, expending the bulk of their efforts to raise, invest, allocate and transfer money. These violent groups are just like a drug cartel, and it is therefore a misunderstanding to believe that terrorists need funds just to make cheap bombs. The creation of a terrorist is a long...

    TEL AVIV, Israel, Nov. 6 (UPI) -- An Israeli civil rights law firm Tuesday came out strongly against Turkey's decision to try former Israeli military chiefs for the deaths of nine activists. Shurat HaDin -- Israel Law Center said the Turkish government and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, not four former Israeli military chiefs, should be held responsible for the activists' deaths aboard the Turkish boat Mavi Marmara boat. In May 2010, Israeli commandos boarded the Mavi Marmara, which was part of a flotilla seeking to break the Israeli blockade on Gaza, after the ship's crew ignored calls to re-route...

    A SENATOR has requested an official inquiry into whether Australian taxpayers are unknowingly funding a Palestinian terrorist organisation. In a letter sent to Foreign Minister Bob Carr last week, Victorian Liberal Senator Michael Ronaldson cited evidence collected by Israeli civil rights organisation Shurat HaDin, which alleges that the Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC), based in Gaza, is a subsidiary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). The PFLP has a history of hijackings and suicide bombings, and was listed as a terrorist organisation by the Australian government in 2001. The Australian government’s foreign-aid arm, AusAID, funds...

    In Babylon’s Covert War author J.H. White builds a provocative and compelling argument designed to strengthen the U.S.’s response to the global threat posed by Islam and radical Jihadists. Building on history, military strategy and tactics, Middle Eastern ideology, and practical anti-terrorism experience author White paints the stark picture of America’s failures in defending against Islam’s war, but also offers up an actionable plan to rectify past failures. There are those that have described the current war on terrorism as a new phenomenon, one that has emerged only in the last several decades. The truth, however, is that the United...

A manifesto that he is believed to have written ranted against Muslim immigration to Europe and vowed revenge on "indigenous Europeans" who he accused of betraying their heritage. Although lawyer for the 32-year-old Norwegian suspect, Anders Behring Breivik, said his client acted alone, police conducted raids on a garage and sheds in an industrial neighborhood of eastern Oslo, said...
