ISIS and Al-Qaeda: The Muslim Jihadist Organizations or the Covert Projects of Mossad and CIA?

Terrorism has engulfed the whole globe but it has played havoc in the Muslim world. The world has known famous and notorious terrorist organizations i.e.AL-QAEDA and ISIS has made the gulf a real battleground. The blood bathing of this area is not a hidden story anymore. Al-Qaeda and ISIS -both following the Salafist ideology- have brought Iraq and Syria to ruins. These are the terrorist outfits aspiring to establish a caliphate.

“Bring a knife, dagger, or handgun,” kidnap Israeli civilians, and murder soldiers and settlers – Instructions on Facebook to Gazans for “March of Return”

Two Palestinian Facebook pages and a forum directing rioters in Gaza gave explicit instructions to murder and kidnap Israelis on May 14, the day the US embassy opened in Jerusalem, as well as suggestions on how to accomplish this goal. It is not clear if Hamas itself was the group sending these messages. What is critical is that Gazans were encouraged to bring weapons to the demonstrations and use these weapons to either murder or capture Israelis. Israeli soldiers may have been facing Palestinians who were using the cover of demonstrating civilians to attempt to break through the border with the goal of murdering and kidnapping Israelis.

Wray said the FBI has about 1,000 investigations into suspected lone wolves in all 50 states, “and that’s not even counting the al-Qaeda investigations, the traditional ISIS investigations, the domestic terrorism investigations …”

Germany’s Bavaria Expands Police Authority Amid Increase in Terror-Related Cases

The newly adopted state regulations give local police powers they haven’t had for over 70 years. Those in favor, including the head of Bavaria, insist that the law allows for more security, civil rights and privacy.

Atwal Denies Making Threats

The man at the centre of a controversy surrounding the prime minister’s trip to India “vehemently denies” threatening a B.C. radio host, according to his lawyer.

Court documents show Jaspal Atwal was charged last month with threatening Gurvinder Singh Dhaliwal, host of a daily Punjabi-language talk show broadcast online by Media Waves Communications.

Atwal made headlines during Justin Trudeau’s February trip to India, when he showed up at an official event despite a previous conviction for trying to assassinate an Indian cabinet minister during a trip to Vancouver Island in 1986.

Hundreds packed the temple to witness the brief event with Trudeau, who did not make any public statements. He gave a food bank donation, was presented with a kirpan — a ceremonial dagger worn by Sikhs — and served food to attendees.​
