    Remembering Malcolm Kerr: Assassinated by Islamic TerroristsPosted By Lloyd Billingsley On May 27, 2015 @ 12:08 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 8 Comments [1]As Steve Kerr leads the Golden State Warriors toward the NBA finals, sportswriters are easily outpacing the old-line establishment media, and the Obama administration, on the subject of terrorism.Kerr, a former National Basketball Association star, is the son of Malcolm Kerr, whose parents Stanley and Elsa arrived in the Middle East in 1919 to join relief efforts that followed the Armenian genocide. As Ailene Voisin of the Sacramento Bee recalls [2], in the early 1980s Malcolm Kerr...

    Amnesty International Denounces Hamas War CrimesPosted By Ari Lieberman On May 28, 2015 @ 12:07 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 4 Comments [1]The so-called human rights group Amnesty International, which frequently and unjustly criticizes Israel for defending itself against today’s modern-day Nazis, has issued another scathing report about this past summer’s war in Gaza involving the Israel Defense Forces and Hamas. However, in a surprising and refreshing turn of events, Amnesty International actually performed a genuine investigation and issued a biting indictment [2] of the Hamas terrorist group.The report, one of four issued by Amnesty International concerning the war, confirms...

    Foreign fighters who claim allegiance to Islamic State are gathering dozens of recruits in eastern Afghanistan, luring would-be jihadis with generous resources and the groups powerful brand, according to a Taliban fighter who has met several of their commanders. The rapid and dramatic victories clocked up by Isis in Iraq, Syria and Libya have attracted some young men with specific grievances against government or foreign forces, who simply want the strongest possible allies. Others seem drawn by the novelty of an upstart force, the Taliban veteran said, or by the apparently deep pockets of a group that boasts laptops, benevolent...
  • Hamas Executed Palestinians During Israel War: Amnesty

    The Islamist group Hamas used its 2014 Gaza war with Israel to "settle scores" with rival Palestinians, executing at least 23 in possible war crimes, Amnesty International said Wednesday. A report by the London-based rights group detailed the "brutal campaign of abductions, torture and unlawful killings against Palestinians accused of 'collaborating' with Israel" by Hamas, de facto ruler of the Gaza Strip enclave. The report details the "extrajudicial execution of at least 23 Palestinians and the arrest and torture of dozens of others".

    U.S. military pilots carrying out the air war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria are voicing growing discontent over what they say are heavy-handed rules of engagement hindering them from striking targets. They blame a bureaucracy that does not allow for quick decision-making. One Navy F-18 pilot who has flown missions against ISIS voiced his frustration to Fox News, saying: "There were times I had groups of ISIS fighters in my sights, but couldn't get clearance to engage. He added, They probably killed innocent people and spread evil because of my inability to kill them. It was frustrating."...

Suspected fighters of Boko Haram, or 'Western education is sinful', reportedly entered Pambula-Kwamda village in Adamawa state early Friday, May 22.

They have appealed to the home secretary for emergency special powers under the Public Order Act 1986.The council first came to national prominence when its social services worked together with elements of the police to spectacularly fail to detect the systematic grooming, rape and prostitution of over 1,400 vulnerable children. The victims were often in the care of the council children’s services and “as young as 12″, and “barely pubescent”. Council commissioners claim the protests against them are becoming prohibitively...

    The Washington Times has uncovered what it calls "deep-seated doubts" among Pentagon brass regarding President Obama's strategy in degrading and defeating ISIS. This revelation undercuts the official White House line that would indicate a unified front between the president and military officials. One Pentagon official, said to be involved in counterterrorism analysis, asked incredulously, What strategy? He went on to say, We are now floating along, reacting to ISIS. The general consensus among top military officials is that the president will never activate their recommended plan of sending in ground troops, a strategy that is believed to be the only...

    The priest was kidnapped by three masked people in the early afternoon at his Mar Elian Monastery in the town of Qaryatayn, while he was preparing to welcome an expected influx of refugees from Palmyra. Father Jacques Mourad had succeeded the Italian Jesuit Priest Paolo Dall`Oglio as the head of the Mar Moussa Monastery, which is linked to Mar Elian, after Dall`Oglio was kidnapped in 2013 from the northern Aleppo province. Mourad worked to foster inter-religious dialogueHis kidnapping vividly illustrates what a hollow and self-defeating exercise that dialogue is, and how mistaken the Church is to place so much hope...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R) of Kentucky, who is a candidate for his party's 2016 presidential nomination, has created a national brand as a man unafraid of challenging party orthodoxy. That was on display Wednesday when Senator Paul credited the rise of the Islamic State terrorist group to hawks within his own party. "ISIS exists and grew stronger because of the hawks in our party who gave arms indiscriminately, and most of those arms were snatched up by ISIS," Paul said in an interview with MSNBCs Joe Scarborough that aired Wednesday on Morning Joe. "Theyve created these people."

    Everyone says President Obama is a feckless commander, weak in statecraft, especially compared to the great leaders of the Western world, such as Reagan and Churchill. I believe this does Obama a great injustice. It's so easy to react the way a great leader would. Sure, Obama could have left a small contingent of American troops in Iraq, preserved America's victory, and prevented the entire region from collapsing into chaos and terror. He could have refrained from issuing empty "red line" threats to Syria. He could call ISIS "Islamic." But anybody could do that -- even ISIS calls itself "Islamic."...

    The Islamic State terrorist organization proclaims it's now "infinitely" closer to buying a nuclear weapon and sneaking it inside the United States than it has ever been, a "far-fetched" claim that's designed only to spark fear of deadly chaos on American soil. In the latest issue of ISIS' monthly English propaganda magazine, Dabiq, an article believed to have been written by captured British photojournalist John Cantlie states that it would be much easier than people realize for ISIS to acquire nuclear weapons and smuggle it through South and Central Americas and up to the southern border.

How do you convince a president who got elected in 2008 on an anti-war platform repudiating warmongering cowboy George W. Bush to ramp up arms deals to unsavory regimes in the Middle East? Slipping a fat envelope into the Clinton slush fund’s collection box couldn’t hurt. And evidently didn’t.Personally, I’m pretty excited to have every foreign-policy transaction the United States engages in through 2020,...

    A new document attests to the genocide that is being ignored by the world. Every year, more than 100,000 Christians are murdered just because of their faith. This means that 11 Christians are murdered every hour. The numbers are contained in a new document presented by John McAreavey, president of the Justice and Peace Commission of the Bishops of Dublin. A genocide of Christians is under way. In many Middle Eastern cities, from Aleppo to Mosul, the Islamists have dealt with each and every Christian by displacing, killing or forcibly converting them, and just like the Nazis painted the Star...

    The United Nations said Tuesday that Boko Haram is responsible for an alarming spike of suicide bombings in Nigeria that have been carried about by women and children. Girls between the ages of 7 and 17 years have been used for three-quarters of all such attacks in the region since 2014, the U.N. childrens agency reported. There have been 27 suicide bombings in the region over five months, compared to 26 in all of 2014. Children are not instigating these suicide attacks; they are used intentionally by adults in the most horrific way.
  • Frontline Nigeria troops hope for better deal under Buhari

    Ed Keazor decided to visit troops on the frontline. The objective, he said, was to collect testimonials, unfiltered by military spokesmen, from soldiers who had battled the Islamist gunmen face-to-face for years. Travelling in April by bus, taxi and finally on foot, he reached Konduga in Borno state and spent hours with a battalion that had successfully defended the town against about a dozen takeover attempts by Boko Haram. "These guys were desperate. They were really, really angry. They said, 'We have been fighting for two years, with no leave'," said Keazor, who videoed parts of his trip on his...

    The May 2000 withdrawal seemed to be part of a larger land-for-peace trend; instead it raised the curtain on the wars of the 21st century Standing before the microphone, looking like he was delivering a eulogy, Shaul Mofaz, the commander of the Israeli army on May 24, 2000, told the citizens of Israel that after 15 years in the Security Zone in South Lebanon, the IDF had withdrawn. He called the move historic. He said the boys had been brought back home. There was no mention of victory. After the invasion of Lebanon in June 1982, Israel had departed in...

    The wonders of diversity are on display in Antwerp, Belgium, the largest municipality in that country and second largest metropolitan area. Gateway Pundit picked up the news from European sources: A sign was hung in a public square in Antwerp, Belgium threatening Mayor Bart De Wever with death if he did not convert to Islam, Belgian media reported Sunday. The message was written in French, one of the three official languages of Belgium, the others being Dutch and German. Het Laatste Nieuws reported (via Google Translate): “By N-VA chairman Bart De Wever again death threats walked. In a letter...

    And so I think it is not at all contradictory to say that there are deep strains of anti-Semitism in the core regime, but that they also are interested in maintaining power, having some semblance of legitimacy inside their own country, which requires that they get themselves out of what is a deep economic rut that weve put them in, and on that basis they are then willing and prepared potentially to strike an agreement on their nuclear program. * * * That is the sentence that jumps out at us in respect of President Obamas latest interview with Jeffrey...

    American intelligence analysts have identified seven buildings in downtown Raqqa in eastern Syria as the main headquarters of the Islamic State. But the buildings have gone untouched during the 10-month allied air campaign. And just last week, convoys of heavily armed Islamic State fighters paraded triumphantly through the streets of the provincial capital Ramadi in western Iraq after forcing Iraqi troops to flee. They rolled on unscathed by coalition fighter-bombers. American and allied warplanes are equipped with the most precise aerial arsenal ever fielded. But American officials say they are not striking significant and obvious Islamic State targets...
