Austria has extradited two men suspected of being linked to ISIS amid claims they entered Europe with the two Stade de France suicide bombers.
The two men, an Algerian, 29, and a Pakistani, 35, were arrested last year at a shelter for refugees on suspicion of being linked to the Paris attacks in which 130 people were killed.
They have since been sent to France from Austria the prosecutors’ office in the city of Salzburg said today.
Okay, okay, I know Ace isn’t everyone’s current favorite, but this deserves a post.
Wrath. How to survive after the death of a child? Worse, of two children? Wrath is necessary, Aristotle tells us: “One cannot win anything without it, if it doesn’t fill the soul, if it doesn’t warm the heart: it must then serve us, not as a master, but as a soldier.”
Driven by this struggle, the parents of two children murdered on 13 November have addressed a letter to the president of the Republic of which Le Figaro has gotten a copy. To Francis Hollande, they explain that if their children had lost their life, it was due to their “jihadist friends.” Therefore, they refuse henceforth to pay their taxes “which serve to defend the killers of our children through the intermediary of the funds guaranteed to hire their lawyers, and for their upkeep as well as that of their ilk on French soil, our Fatherland!”
They have so advised their tax collection center and placed their money in an blocked account.
“You have brought them to their deaths”
The man accused of being the logistics chief behind the Paris terror attacks was booed by radical Muslim inmates after arriving in jail – because he failed to carry out his suicide bombing.
…Upon arriving behind bars, the 26-year-old was whistled and jeered by extremist lags enraged by his alleged failure to detonate his suicide vest during the Paris onslaught.
A police source said: “If the Abrini statements are correct, it just confirms the fact that Belgium is an operational base that needs to be watched even more intensely.
“Jihadi networks and cells have been meeting there for at least 10 years.”
Authorities have caught a wanted Algerian man suspected of being involved in the heinous Brussels and Paris terror attacks committed by the Islamic State.
Abu al-Ayna al-Ansari, a Salafist movement senior official in the Gaza Strip, made the claim in a pre-recorded, hour-long interview to air in full on Sunday.
The attacks in Brussels on Tuesday weren’t the first—nor will they be the last attack on a transportation hub, they’re a key target simply because the volume of people passing through hubs on a daily basis. Little by little the ominous black cloud of radical Muslim terrorism is moving across the world. Before it is too late, we need toss out the entire TSA system and all the employees and managers. We hire new people and begin to screen (profile) passengers and crowds of people the “Israeli way,” in airports, bus & train stations, even big shopping malls. This means hiring agents based on their intelligence and their ability to behavior profile and profiling passengers as they make their way through the airport and/or depot.
Making those attacks even more tragic is that in most places, especially in the United States we have not done what is necessary to protect ourselves from these terrorists. The failure is not in the military or police heroes trying to protect us, nor is it in the intelligence people trying learn about the attacks before they happen. The number one reason we are vulnerable is our political leaders who refuse to do what is necessary.
The deadly ‘Mother of Satan’ bombs used in the Brussels attacks were the same kind of explosives used in the London 7/7 attacks and the Paris atrocities last year.
Officials discovered 15 kilograms of TATP – the substance containing concentrated hydrogen peroxide and acetone – at the house from which the Brussels attacks’ suspects left for the airport.
POLICE have launched an international manhunt for Najim Laachraoui, the man suspected of involvement in yesterday’s bomb attacks in Brussels and the Paris massacre in November last year.

A Blurry Photo Hints at ISIS Tradecraft
Since the deadly attacks of November 13th in Paris, the terrorist threat in the French capital has been closely associated with the security environment in Brussels. Radical Islamist networks with ties to the Islamic State and benefiting from deep-rooted support bases in Belgium have been at the origin of the November attacks as well as several other thwarted plots.
Both countries continue to face a heightened terrorist threat and police forces as well as intelligence agencies are cooperating to prevent further attacks and collect information concerning groups that actively support Middle East-based Sunni extremist militants.
“We have found more than 30 people involved in the terrorist attacks in Paris, but we are sure that there are others.” And they are likely to be still involved in planning new jihad attacks, as “the top suspect in last year’s Paris attacks told investigators after he was captured that he was planning new operations from Brussels and possibly had access to several weapons.”
During a stake-out of the home on Rue Quatre-Vents, police came increasingly convinced that residents were hiding a larger group of people there.
But their suspicions were only confirmed when a woman made an unusually large pizza order, Politico reported, leading armed officers to discover her sitting down for tea with two friends, several children and Abdeslam.
