The trial of an Uzbek militant who confessed to killing 39 people during a New Year’s Eve attack at a Turkish nightclub is due to start on Monday at a prison on the outskirts of Istanbul.
Abdulkadir Masharipov has been charged with committing multiple murders, “attempting to destroy constitutional order” and membership in an armed terrorist organization, among other offenses. He faces at least 40 life sentences for each of the victims and an additional one for the massacre as a whole.
The Uzbek national said a senior Russian operative of the “Islamic State” (IS) militant group ordered him to target the Reina nightclub on New Year’s Eve last year, according to the indictment.
If you want to punish a non-Muslim, especially a poor Christian in Pakistan, point your index finger at him and utter the word “blasphemy.” You will soon find thousands of Islamic hardliners beside you chanting, “Death to blasphemers!” Similarly, if you want to root out a Hindu family from its ancestral home in Bangladesh, just accuse one of its members of insulting the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. You will soon find thousands of Muslims rushing to burn the Hindu family’s whole neighborhood down, without hesitation or evidence.

French police arrested a man on Monday in connection with the jihadist murder of a police couple 18 months ago after his DNA was matched to traces found in their home near Paris.
The 24-year-old has been linked to Larossi Aballa, the Islamic State extremist who claimed the June 2016 attack in a live video from the murder scene before being killed by police in a shootout, the sources added.
The suspect, who was not on a terrorism watchlist but was known to be radicalised, was arrested in the western Paris suburb of Les Mureaux.
His brother has already been charged with providing logistical assistance to Aballa, whose chilling attack — one in a string of assaults in France
since January 2015 — caused shock in police ranks.
The father of scientific socialism and an inspirational figure to many leading Democrats, Karl Marx has announced that he is resigning as a seminal thinker and is asking all his followers, especially women, to forgive him and forget his doctrine of class conflict and communist internationalism due to allegations of sexual abuse of his female aide and a criminal conspiracy to cover it up.
In the wake of President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last week, the “experts” crowding the media predicted strategic calamity: Vast, violent protests and a wave of terror would sweep the Muslim world in the coming days.
Instead, the largest demonstration anywhere this weekend was the funeral procession for Johnny Hallyday, the “French Elvis.” Nothing in the Middle East came close.
We have witnessed, yet again, the carefully phrased anti-Semitism of the pristinely educated; the global left’s fanatical pro-Palestinian bias; and the media’s yearning for career-making disasters.
No one cares about the Fakestinians. About time too.
Enemy combatants should not be treated the same as citizens.
We have become scared of killing terrorists. Last week, the defence secretary, Gavin Williamson, sparked outrage for stating that, ‘quite simply, my view is a dead terrorist can’t cause any harm to Britain’. Williamson suggested that government policy should be to kill ISIS fighters before they return to the UK wherever possible. He was hardly engaging with the difficult questions surrounding returning terror suspects by pointing out that a dead terrorist has been effectively neutralised. They’re dead after all. However, the reaction to this banal statement was far more shocking. Many argued that it is always wrong to kill people without first applying due process.
So, pot czar Justin Trudeau, realizing his actual street dealers were on the verge of a revolt, turned to his Mr. Big, Bill Morneau, and told him to divvy up a more saleable split of the profits from upcoming pot deals.
When profits are projected to be in the billions, honour among thieves, and we say “thieves” with all due respect, begins to lose its lustre.
Tahra Ahmed expresses beliefs widely held within the Muslim community.
A volunteer working with victims of the Grenfell Tower fire has said the 71 people who died in the disaster were “burnt alive in a Jewish sacrifice”.
Tahra Ahmed, a conspiracy theorist who believes the 9/11 terror attack was faked by Jews, has been running an aid network to help those affected by fire.
According to The Times, Ms Ahmed, 47, told reporters that the fire was a “holocaust”.
Ms Ahmed shared her view that Jews were responsible for the tragedy on her Facebook page.
She claimed the tower, in west London, was owned by a Jewish property developer. It is in fact owned by Kensington and Chelsea Council.
“Hitler and the Germans were the victims of the Jewish conspiracy to destroy Germany,” she wrote.
“Watch the live footage of people trapped in the inferno with flames behind them. They were burnt alive in a Jewish sacrifice.
The Bangladeshi national behind Monday’s unsuccessful terrorist attack in New York City told investigators that he plotted the bombing as revenge for recent Israeli actions against Palestinians in the Gaza strip.
Suspect Akayed Ullah, 27, was seriously injured around 7:20am when a pipe bomb strapped to his body malfunctioned and prematurely exploded as he walked through a busy Midtown Manhattan subway station.
Authorities say the homemade explosive only partially exploded and that if it had detonated as intended, there would have been more injuries and doubtless loss of life.
The crude device was made from a pipe, a 9-volt battery, match heads, sugar, Christmas tree lights and screws, senior law enforcement officials told the New York Post.
Ullah was taken to Bellevue Hospital to be treated for serious burns and lacerations to his abdomen and hands but is expected to survive.
A small business in Oberlin, Ohio, popular with denizens of Oberlin College is facing accusations of racism and protests after three black students were arrested November 2016 for assaulting a white shopkeeper and stealing bottles of wine.
After being labeled as a “racist establishment,” by a senior dean at the college, the family owned business, Gibson’s Bakery, says it has no choice but to sue the college and Meredith Raimondo, vice president and dean of students, for slander, the Associated Press reported.
Palestinian child abuse.
To anyone unfamiliar with the burning cauldron of Mideast politics, it must seem bizarre.
How can people around the world be rioting, firing rockets at Israel, firebombing a synagogue in Sweden and threatening even more terrorism over U.S. President Donald Trump recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel?
Most people are sick of the “Palestinians”. Sick at the knowledge millions of our tax dollars line their “leaders” pockets, sick of their incessant whining, sick of their lies, sick of them.
We regret the error. Again and again and again.
“Our record as journalists in covering this Trump story and the Russian story is pretty good,” legendary reporter Carl Bernstein told CNN’s Brian Stelter over the weekend. Pretty good? If there’s a major news story over the past 70 years that American media has botched more often because of bias and wishful thinking, I’d love to hear about it.
Western intellectuals and commentators refer to the enemy’s ideology as: “Islamic Fundamentalism,” “Islamic Extremism,” “Islamic Totalitarianism,” “Islamofascism,” “Political Islam,” “Militant Islam,” “Islamonazism,” “Radical Islam,” “Islamism,” etc….
The enemy calls it “Islam.”
Imagine, if during past wars, we used terms such as “Radical Nazism,” “Extremist Shinto” and “Militant Communism.” The implication would have been that there were good versions of those ideologies, which would have lead some to seek out “moderate” Nazis, “moderate” Communists, etc., in order to prove that it wasn’t the ideologies that were the problem, but just those who “perverted” them.
Recently, we all learned about new sexual identities like “two spirit” and “questioning” when a teacher’s group in Canada reeducated us about the latest victim groups that need attention. Right on cue, a new sexual orientation has leapt onto the scene. “Objectum sexual” describes people who are sexually attracted to inanimate objects like cars or statues. Amanda Liberty is one such person whose attraction for hanging chandeliers cannot be suppressed.
