    Gunmen on motorbikes fired into the crowded market in Kompienga town around lunchtime on Saturday, eyewitnesses and residents said. Local media earlier reported 20 killed, while quoting sources as saying the death toll could be considerably higher. AFP news agency quoted local residents as saying 30 died. The government blamed the attack on "terrorists", a phrase usually used to describe al-Qaeda and Islamic State-linked jihadists Burkina Faso has been battling in recent years. Despite occasional government claims of success against the Islamist militants, the insecurity in the north and east of Burkina Faso has dramatically escalated. Jihadists have often targeted...

    Two Temple Terrace Police officers were involved in the confrontation outside City Hall Friday and are now under investigation. One of the officers was the target of a knife-wielding woman, while the other came to his aid. The confrontation was caught on surveillance video. In the video, the officer can be seen approaching the woman, who was seated on a bench. She then draws the large knife and lunges at the officer, swinging the knife at him as he backs away. The confrontation then moves out of view of the camera. That's when the officer shot the woman, later identified...

    Today in history, on May 29, 1453, the sword of Islam conquered Constantinople. Of all Islam’s conquests of Christian territory, this was by far the most symbolically significant. For not only was Constantinople a living and direct extension of the old Roman Empire and current capital of the Christian Roman Empire (or Byzantium), but its cyclopean walls had prevented Islam from entering Europe through its eastern doorway for the previous seven centuries, beginning with the First Arab Siege of Constantinople (674-678). Indeed, as Byzantine historian John Julius Norwich puts it, “Had the Saracens captured Constantinople in the seventh century rather...

    Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison told people rioting in the streets over the death of George Floyd to direct their frustration toward the Minneapolis Police Department rather than the National Guard. . . . Ellison went on to say that riots such as the one unfolding in Minneapolis are how the “unheard get heard.” "Don't just dismiss that and ignore it and relegate it to just criminality and bad behavior,” he said. “Actually ask yourself what's going on there.”

    …..However, with the advent of the Obama administration and the start of a policy of appeasement towards the Iranian regime, there was a general change of atmosphere at the VOA and as such, entry into the Persian section for those with known affiliations to the Islamic republic were facilitated. This approach was justified on the grounds that it would help attain the compromise needed with Iran to secure a nuclear agreement with the ‘5+1’. These developments took a disturbing turn when the annual task of assessing ‘News Talk’ and other programs of the VOA Persian was assigned to Mr. Hooman...

Speaking under the pseudonym of “Ella,” a British woman recently revealed that her Muslim rapists called her “a white c*nt, a white wh*re, and a white b*tch,” during the more than 100 times she was raped in her youth by the mostly Pakistani grooming gang. “We need to understand racially and religiously aggravated crime if we are going to prevent it and protect people from it and if we are going to prosecute correctly for it,” she said in her recent interview.  “Prevention, protection and prosecution — all of them...

    The price of liberty is eternal vigilance, but not everyone shares in the cost. Even fewer comprehend that the threat to our democracy is more likely to come from the internal erosion of our civic institutions than from external forces. The most corrupting influence on our democracy is rooted in political correctness in our education system. Whereas there once was an emphasis on civic education as a means to imbue the citizenry with the values of the Constitution, that emphasis has long been diminished. From elementary school through college, basic requirements in American history and civics have been replaced by...

    A teenage girl was beheaded by her ex-boyfriend when she returned to his flat to collect her belongings after she broke up with him, it has been claimed. Wilma Andersson, 17, disappeared on November 14 last year before police found a 'body part' a fortnight later which turned out to be her head. Her ex-boyfriend Tishko Ahmed Shabaz was arrested and has now been charged with her murder in a case that has shocked Sweden because it is deemed as one of the safest countries in the world, Expressen reports. The rest of Wilma's body has yet to be found....

    I had decided to go for dinner early - at six o'clock - with my friend, another pilot called Michael Poulikakos. It was the first time in the three or four months that I had been coming to the Intercontinental that I'd done this - usually I had dinner at around 8.30pm. We finished dinner about 7.30pm and then I went up to my room - room 522 - on the top floor, to make some calls. At 8.47 p.m. I was on the phone to Athens when I heard a big explosion down in the lobby. I went out...

    The Saint Catherine Church in the small town of Moria on Lesvos, is now being used as a bathroom. A local in Moria described the scene. “The smell inside is unbearable,” said Makis Pavlellis, a butcher. “Discussing with people about the Church, we learned that the metropolitan of Mytilene is aware of the situation in the area nevertheless he does not wish to deal with it for his own reasons.” Only earlier this month Greek City Times reported that the Saint Catherine church in Moria was already trashed by illegal immigrants. This is only the latest incident and rather it...

    How the terrorists kill two birds with one stone. Because more numbers equate more power and influence, Muslims from all walks of life—including Muammar Gaddafi—have made clear that the act of procreating is a form of jihad.  Thus,  in the U.K., “Muslim hate fanatics plan to take over Britain by having more babies and forcing a population explosion,” a report revealed back in 2008: “The swollen Muslim population would be enough to conquer Britain from inside.” A Christian Eritrean volunteer and translator who worked in migrant centers in Germany, and was often assumed to be Muslim by the migrants, confessed that “Muslim migrants...

    FBI investigators said the shooting incident at a Texas naval air station Thursday morning was a 'terror' attack and revealed that a second person of interest may be at-large. The gunman was first reported near the base around 6.15am when he tried to speed through a gate at the Naval Air Station Corpus Christi. Authorities said vehicle barriers stopped the car, but the man proceeded to open fire.

    The Iranian government released a profoundly anti-Semitic poster about Palestinian liberation that invoked Nazi Germany’s “final solution” plan for European Jews. Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, published a poster on Tuesday that reads “Palestine will be free. The final solution: Resistance until referendum.” Khamenei’s office released the image to celebrate Quds Day, an annual rally in Iran that calls for the destruction of Israel, according to The Jerusalem Post. The poster — which was displayed in English, Arabic and Farsi — depicts a conquered Jerusalem alongside the late Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp Quds Force...
