Later the same day Turkey said the two countries had agreed to form a joint working (effort) to investigate the situation…

    Khashoggi never had much time for western-style pluralistic democracy. In the 1970s he joined the Muslim Brotherhood, which exists to rid the Islamic world of western influence. He was a political Islamist until the end, recently praising the Muslim Brotherhood in the Washington Post. He championed the ‘moderate’ Islamist opposition in Syria, whose crimes against humanity are a matter of record. Khashoggi frequently sugarcoated his Islamist beliefs with constant references to freedom and democracy. But he never hid that he was in favour of a Muslim Brotherhood arc throughout the Middle East. His recurring plea to bin Salman in his...

    PALU, Indonesia, Oct 2 (Reuters) - Indonesia is in a race against time to save victims of a devastating earthquake and tsunami on Sulawesi island, the government said on Tuesday, as the official death toll rose to more than 1,200 and looting fueled fears of lawlessness. Four days after the double disaster struck, officials feared the toll could soar, as most of the confirmed dead had come from Palu, a small city 1,500 km (930 miles) northeast of Jakarta. Some remote areas have been largely cut off after Friday's 7.5 magnitude quake triggered tsunami waves, destroying roads and bridges, and...

    A British aid worker was killed Friday in a U.N. compound in the West Bank during a gunbattle between Israeli troops and Palestinian gunmen — the first senior U.N. official to die in over two years of fighting. The United Nations accused Israeli soldiers of preventing an ambulance from immediately reaching Iain Hook, a senior manager for UNRWA, the U.N. agency that helps Palestinian refugees. The Israeli army said he was evacuated from the U.N. compound in the Jenin refugee camp as soon as possible. The death occurred hours after Israel reoccupied the West Bank town of Bethlehem for the...
  • The dollars that fund spies from Iran [are your tax dollars, given to Iran by President Obama]

    Several weeks ago, an article in the Hebrew-language Yediot Achronot revealed that, according to Palestinian sources, Hamas and Islamic Jihad have received more than $100 million per year over the last few years from Iran. That represents a substantial fraction of the cash that President Barack Obama put on pallets and flew to Tehran shortly before he left office. Today it was announced that two Iranians had been indicted for spying in the United States for the Iranian government. What were they looking at? Missile bases? Nuclear reactors? Grand Central Station? No. They were indicted for taking pictures of “Israeli...

    An incendiary kite flown from Gaza sparked a major fire in an open field across from the Sapir College in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council, near the southern city of Sderot on Tuesday afternoon. Heavy smoke covered the college building as firefighters were dispatched to the area and worked to prevent the fire from spreading to the nearby road and into the college. There were no reports of injuries. On Tuesday afternoon, fires broke out in seven other locations in the Gaza vicinity, four in the Eshkol Regional Council and three in Sha’ar Hanegev. Firefighters gained control of the fire...

Arson investigators at the Carmia reserve said the fire was most likely set by a fire kite, or possibly a balloon filled with chemicals that dripped flames along the area, Hadashot news reported.

  • 4 Islamic Jihad members killed in Gaza 'work accident' blast

    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — The militant Islamic Jihad group said four of its members were killed Saturday in a "work accident" in the southern Gaza Strip along the border with Israel. The explosion struck a three-wheeled vehicle near one of the five protest camps Palestinians have set up along the volatile Gaza-Israel border in recent weeks. Islamic Jihad said all four were killed "during preparations" without elaborating, implying they were preparing an attack against Israel. The Israeli military said it was unaware of any activity in the area of the blast.

    On Tuesday's 'Morning Joe' on MSNBC, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine warned that Democrats would view any attempt by the president to fire Robert Mueller or signal plans to issue pardons "as the president pushing the nation into a constitutional crisis." (snip) BRZEZINSKI: So the president calls this a witch hunt. He says they didn't find anything. And he really was quite defensive yesterday about -- that this was a sad situation and he's not sure whether or not Mueller will be fired. Are you concerned that this investigation could be thwarted? KAINE: Yes. I think the president is clearly panicked....

    Palestinian Arabs demonstrated in Ramallah on Thursday, demanding the closure of the America House which, is operated by the U.S. consulate in eastern Jerusalem and located in the city of Ramallah. The role of the America House, which is established in 2010, is to disseminate American culture. The protesters demanded the removal of American workers and the closure of their offices, in protest of the Trump administration's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel and its intention to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem by mid-May, in time for Israel’s 70th Independence Day....

    A 27-year-old Arab Terrorist from the Saraya al-Quds cell, a branch of Islamic Jihad, was killed in an accidental explosion in the northern Gaza Strip, said Ashraf al-Qidra, a spokesman for the Hamas-run Health Ministry said on Saturday. Islamic Jihad said the terrorist, who was identified as Ibrahim Frahat, died “while preparing for battle,” making no mention of an “accidental explosion.” During the explosion, two other Arabs from Gaza were injured. Major General Yoav Mordechai, the head of the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), said that Frahat died while “manufacturing weapons and ammunition for Islamic Jihad in...

    On Sunday, the Israel Security Agency (also known as Shin Bet or Shabak for short) announced the arrest of members of an Islamic Jihad terror cell that planned to assassinate Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, according to JTA. According to the Shin Bet, the six members of the cell planned to place an explosive charge on the minister’s route and appealed to terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip to receive funding for the attack. The terrorist ringleaders were identified as 25-year-old Mahmud Awad al-Asakra from the village of Rafida near Bethlehem (Judea) and 32-year-old Muhammad’ Ali Ibrahim ‘Asakara also from...

    As I have reported here for the past 15 years, this is all according to Islamic texts and teachings. And for me (and a small handful of my colleagues who dare speak candidly about Islam), we have been demonized, marginalized and rendered radioactive. Meanwhile — a cop takes 13 bullets. Downtown New Yorkers get mowed down on Halloween by a devout Muslim ululating “allah akbar.” Coworkers enjoying Christmas festivities in San Bernardino are slaughtered in cold blood. Commuters to work on trains are stabbed by Muslims shouting “allah akbar” in Belgium, Switzerland, Ireland, Marseilles, Paris, Sweden, etc. Shoppers stabbed at...

    The extremist Islamic State group’s branch in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula has taken a simmering dispute with the Palestinian Hamas group based in nearby Gaza to new levels, releasing a 22-minute video in which it calls on its followers to attack the group and shows the execution of a man it said was a collaborator. Analysts say the escalation has the potential to destabilize an already fragile security situation in Gaza, the Palestinian enclave that Hamas has controlled for the past decade.

    Khaled Al-Batash, one of the senior leaders of the Islamic Jihad terrorist group in Gaza, reiterated on Saturday that the organization is determined to retaliate for Israel blowing up a terror tunnel which led from Gaza into Israel, resulting in the deaths of 17 terrorists, most of them members of the Islamic Jihad. The bodies of 12 of the terrorists were recovered by the Palestinian Authority (PA), while Israel recovered and is holding the bodies of the remaining five. In an interview with the Palestinian Arab Quds Press news agency, Batash said, "We are not discussing with anyone our right...

    Hezbollah is a greater and more longstanding foundational threat to our homeland than ISIS. This was brought to the forefront last week when two Hezbollah operatives were arrested on charges of surveilling targets for the Iranian-backed terror group on our own soil. They were also naturalized citizens who were admitted from Lebanon as immigrants years ago. Sadly, this story received very little media coverage. President Trump would be wise to give a televised address making the case for his immigration moratorium and travel ban by using this case as a perfect case study for the need for smarter vetting and...
