The head of an influential Muslim group said he’s disappointed Quebec’s main opposition parties do not support a call by his organization to make the anniversary of Quebec City’s deadly mosque shooting a day of action on Islamophobia.
‘Day of action’ may not be the best choice of words.
Claims that agents post-dated documents to cover their blunders have cast a fresh spotlight on counterterrorism agencies in the wake of over a string of terror attacks that have left 239 people dead in France since 2015.
German police were reportedly approached by an informant about Amri in Nov. 2015 and had his cell phone under surveillance when they learned of him downloading terror instruction manuals. Ten months prior to the attack German authorities also knew that Amri was using his cell phone to message Islamic State operatives in Libya.
Update: An ISIS-inspired would-be suicide bomber set off a homemade explosive device at the Port Authority Bus Terminal subway station Monday morning, seriously wounding himself and injuring three others, law enforcement sources said.
The man — a 27-year-old Brooklyn man identified by high ranking police sources as Akayed Ullah — had wires attached to him and a 5-inch metal pipe bomb and battery pack strapped to his midsection as he walked through the Manhattan transit hub.
UPDATE from Fox News: The suspected bomber was a 27-year-old man from Brooklyn, law enforcement sources told Fox News. Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC his sources in the department said the explosion was an “ISIS-inspired attack.” Bratton said the suspect was a man from Bangladesh who had been living in the U.S. for about seven years.
UPDATE from Fox News: Akayed Ullah, 27, set off the “effectively low tech device” in a subway passageway just before 7:30 a.m., New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a news conference. Ullah suffered burns and wounds to his body and appeared to be the only person seriously injured in the pipe bomb explosion, authorities said. At least three other people suffered injuries that were not life threatening.
There are two type of Muslims: Recently Rapidly Radicalized and Sleeper Cells.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel will meet with the families of the 12 people killed in a terrorist attack that targeted a Christmas market in Berlin last year, government spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Monday.
The announcement comes after the relatives of those killed wrote a letter published in the Hamburg-based Der Spiegel news magazine that accused her of “political inaction” and failing to reach out in the aftermath.
Salman’s attorneys argue that she does not have the mental capacity to have helped plan the Pulse attack and any confession she gave the FBI came after being interviewed for more than a dozen hours.
“That apparently is the government’s theory, that a special ed student who they could get to confess after 18 hours was actually a brilliant mastermind,” her attorney, Charles Swift, argued during a February hearing.
Police and army troops summoned to the scene killed all of the attackers at the Agriculture Training Institute in the northwestern city of Peshawar about two hours into the attack, the military’s press wing said.
Life in the Paris music club’s street seems to have returned to normal. Yet omnipresent police and a new counterterrorism law reveal the lasting effects of the night when 90 people lost their lives at the Bataclan.
This is why the world detests these cheese eating surrender monkeys.
Halloween afternoon got off to an ugly start in New York City as a 29-year-old Muslim Uzbeki man named Sayfullo Saipov drove onto a pedestrian path in lower Manhattan, killing 8 people.
Then came the usual spin. Police sources initially stated that incident wasn’t terror related, but quickly backtracked after multiple eyewitnesses reported that the suspect shouted “Allah Akbar” (God is greatest), the instantly recognizable battle cry of jihadists everywhere.
Liberals are using terrorism to further their agenda of disarming the nation, ignoring the reality that almost anything can be weaponized.
It has happened again, of course, and will again. A lunatic Muslim Uzbek, here on a “Diversity Visa” – which, I thought had to be a made up thing, but no, it’s real – has killed many people, wounded more. At least the name Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov is probably not going to ring through the ages. Let’s just call him So Full O’ Sh*t for short. I’m sorry he wasn’t shot dead or run over like his fellow-terrorist “Speedbump” Tsarnaev of Boston Marathon fame. Sadly, U.S. taxpayers had to foot the bill to operate on So Fullo’s gutshot stomach, and will have to house him forever if the feds don’t succeed in cutting it short with capital punishment. He’s only 29. That’s a lot of coin.
Terrorism is punishment for resisting Islamization. Sharia is the real danger.
“Our administration has promised the people of New York a police force that keeps our city safe, but that is also respectful and fair,” New York City Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement. “This reform is a critical step forward in easing tensions between the police and the communities they serve, so that our cops and our citizens can help one another go after the real bad guys.”
As a candidate, de Blasio had said that “we need to do a full review of all surveillance efforts, and anything that is not based on specific leads should not continue.”
