    Twitter locked the accounts of journalist Andy Ngo and documentary filmmaker and journalist Mike Cernovich after they shared links to the stated motivations of Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, the Saudi Arabian national responsible for the Pensacola terror attack. Alshamrani, a Saudi Arabian aviation student, killed three innocents when he opened fire at Naval Air Station Pensacola on Friday. Six other Saudi nationals, including three who allegedly filmed the attack, were arrested following the shooting. The attacker posted his motivations on Twitter. As Breitbart News previously reported: The SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadist media, identified the gunman as Mohammed al-Shamrani, saying...

    Turmoil in Baghdad, paralysis in Beirut and flames of unrest in Tehran; it has been a bad few months for Iran at home and elsewhere in the Middle East, where more than a decade of advances are being slowed, not by manoeuvrings on battlefields or legislatures – but the force of protest movements. Early last week, Iran went dark for four days by closing its internet connections down. Even for the country’s autocratic leadership, this was a drastic step. But such are the stakes for a regime that is increasingly facing obstacles across its hubs of Shia influence. And those...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) on Sunday rallied supporters of his presidential bid in Minnesota alongside Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who depicted the Vermont senator as a steadfast champion of progressive causes. Omar, who said she was "honored to stand with the son of a Jewish refugee who survived genocide," introduced the senator at Williams Arena, which the campaign said drew just over 10,000 people, according to CBS News. "The acknowledgement of pain and suffering is personal for both of us," she added. Omar, who recently endorsed Sanders along with two other members of the so-called "squad" of progressive female freshmen...

    As Tuesday marked a day of mourning in Sri Lanka, a mass funeral took place for 30 victims of the devastating Easter Sunday terror attack that left more than 300 dead and 500 injured. The stories behind some of the lives lost are now being shared. Mothers wailing next to baby coffins. A woman, now a widow, grappling with being alone. Entire families being buried together. With headlines talking of the deadly massacre and ISIS now claiming attack, it’s easy to lose sight of the names and faces that were killed on Easter Sunday. Here’s a glimpse into some of the beautiful lives so tragically taken: ...

    Thousands of people will march through Hollywood and the Mid-City area Wednesday to mark the 104th anniversary of the Armenian genocide, again calling on Turkey — and the United States — to officially recognize that it occurred. Turkey has refused to recognize the killings of 1.5 million Armenians beginning in 1915 as a genocide. Americans presidents also have declined to do so, calling the deaths at the hands of the Ottoman Empire an atrocity but not a genocide. ... The Armenian genocide began in 1915 and resulted in the deaths of as many as 1.5 million Armenians in a campaign...

    Islamic jihadists want to destroy the artifacts of non-Muslim civilizations, because doing so testifies to the truth of Islam, as the Qur’an suggests that the destroyed remnants of ancient non-Muslim civilizations are a sign of Allah’s punishment of those who rejected his truth: Many were the Ways of Life that have passed away before you: travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who rejected Truth. (Qur’an 3:137) This is one of the foundations of the Islamic idea that pre-Islamic civilizations, and non-Islamic civilizations, are all jahiliyya — the society of unbelievers, which is worthless. Obviously...

    Amazon has pulled more than a dozen products off its website after receiving complaints that the items are offensive to Muslims. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, asked the online retailer last week to remove the products, which included doormats, bath mats and other items imprinted with Islamic calligraphy, references to the Prophet Muhammad and scripture. The products, which were being sold by independent merchants on Amazon's website, are deemed offensive because they "would be stepped-on or otherwise disrespected by customers," CAIR said in a statement on Thursday. The following day,...

    International human rights attorney Amal Clooney accused President Trump of putting the lives of journalists in danger with his rhetoric in a speech at the United Nations Correspondents Association Awards this week. She said that journalists were “under attack,” in “autocratic regimes from North Korea to the Philippines to Hungary.” “The U.S. president has given such regimes a green light and labeled the press in this country the ‘enemy of the people,’” she argued. President Trump has used and tweeted the “enemy of the people” label about media he considers to be “fake news.” “And of course, two months ago,...

    Islamic terrorists are a “tiny minority of extremists”. That’s the message we’ve been hearing ever since 9/11. They’re only a handful of “guys in a cave” or a few “lone wolves” radicalized over the internet. How tiny is that tiny minority? According to a study by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, there are 230,000 Jihadists. Put this tiny minority of extremists together in a city and you would have Boise, Idaho, or Richmond, Virginia, or Des Moines, Iowa. But that’s not a roster of Muslim civilians who support Islamic terrorism, just active members of terrorist groups. And...

    Amazon has approved funding for an Islamic extremist British charity called The Muslim Research and Development Foundation, through its Amazon Smile programme, The Times reports. The charity (MRDF) which according to the government’s counter-extremism commissioner Sara Khan, is the “main Salafist organisation in the UK”. It was founded and formerly chaired by Haitham al-Haddad, a 52 year old Saudi Islamic scholar. Khan also stated, “Haitham al-Haddad’s views are misogynistic, racist and homophobic. They promote a supremacist ‘us versus them’ world view that wrongly makes Muslims feel that they can’t be fully British.” In addition he has also been described as...

    BISMARCK — A Minnesota woman pleaded guilty to voting twice during the 2016 election in a Cass County (N.D.) court Tuesday, Sept. 25, marking a rare prosecution of such an offense in North Dakota. Hannan Yassin Aboubaker of Shakopee, Minn., entered an Alford plea on a Class A misdemeanor "election offense," meaning she didn't admit wrongdoing but acknowledged she may have been found guilty based on the evidence. Her sentence was deferred and she was placed on unsupervised probation for six months, two months after which the case would be dismissed and the file would be sealed.

    ""Pompeo Terminates Iran Treaty After UN Court Hands Tehran A Victory In Sanctions Lawsuit Against Washington"" Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Wednesday the U.S. will terminate a 63-year-old treaty with Iran, hours after a top United Nations court ruled in favor of Tehran in a lawsuit challenging U.S. sanctions. Pompeo said the abrogation of the 1955 Treaty of Amity was “39 years overdue,” referring to the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran that resulted in the overthrow of the U.S.-friendly shah. Until Pompeo’s announcement, the Treaty of Amity had remained in force even though Washington and Tehran have not had...
