Nigerian Jihadists Take Over Catholic Church, Behead Christians…

The death and destruction never ends.

(TDL) – The Catholic Church has complained that Boko Haram insurgents have taken over the parish rectory of its church and other houses of Christians following last week’s attack on Madagali in Adamawa State, Northeast Nigeria.

The church, in an electronic press statement by the Director, Catholic Social Communications in-charge of the Maiduguri Diocese, Rev. Fr. Gideon Obasogie, said though the members of the outlawed sect have not been known to draw a line of demarcation of whom to visit or not to visit with mayhem, adding that, “in recent times, it seems that Christians and Christian institutions have been at the receiving end of the attacks by the terrorists.”

Obasogie said this in Madagali, which is a local government that borders Borno and Adamawa States, and the closest town to Gwoza with a large number of Catholics, and members of other Christian denominations.

The town also has a good number of Muslims, he said, stressing that “the whole town and the parish rectory have been occupied by the terrorists, so many structures and items have been vandalised. Dozens have been killed and a lot of church structures have been burnt down”.

He lamented that “Christians in the town are really in a terrible situation; a moment of great persecution. Christian men are caught and beheaded, while Christian women are forced to become Muslims and are taken as wives to the terrorists.

“The houses of Christians that have fled are now occupied by the terrorists; their cars are used by the terrorists. Some Muslims around identify Christian homes to be occupied and the Christians hiding were also exposed and they were killed.

“Strict Sharia Laws have been promulgated, as observed by a woman who luckily escaped the dead zone”.

Anti Israel, Anti-West MP George Galloway Reportedly Beaten Up On London Street

George Galloway

Via Breitbart:

The notoriously anti-Israel and anti-West Member of Parliament George Galloway has reportedly been beaten up on a London street tonight, with one news outlet reporting that Galloway has suffered a broken jaw at the hands of his attacker.

The MP for Bradford West is no stranger to verbal scuffles, but this evening he found himself at the tail end of a physical one, when a man apparently shouted comments about the Holocaust and proceeded to beat up the MP as he posed for pictures.

Galloway, who has recently been interviewed under caution by police for claiming that his constituency in the north of England should be an ‘Israel-free zone’ is said to have been taken to hospital and remains “badly bruised”.

Police on the scene made an arrest. A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “Police were called at approximately 1940 hours to Golborne Road, W10, after a man was assaulted in the street.

“Officers attended. The suspect was found a short time later and stopped.

“He was arrested on suspicion of ABH (actual bodily harm) and taken to the south London police station where he remains.”

Galloway has made headlines recently for refusing to debate an Israeli student, claiming that he doesn’t recognise the Jewish state. He also is known for his support for Syrian president Bashar al Assad, and former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, whom he once referred to as “indefatigable”.

ISIS Beheads Lebanese Soldier In New Video…

Heads continue to roll in the Middle East . . . literally.

BEIRUT: The images of what appears to be the beheading of a Lebanese Army soldier, Ali Sayyed- one of eleven soldiers captured by ISIS militants was heavily circulated on social media Thursday evening.

“Now you know who are the lions of ISIS,” tweeted Abou Misaab Hafid al-Baghdadi, linking a gruesome picture showing Sayyed’s beheading.

The victim, Ali Sayyed, is an Army soldier originally from Akkar. He was among soldiers and Internal Security Forces personnel captured during clashes that pitted jihadists against the Lebanese Army in the border town of Arsal earlier this month.

Abou Misaab Hafid al-Baghdadi claimed that he was a member of ISIS in his Twitter bio.

A senior Army official said the military was investigating reports on the beheading of Ali Sayyed.

Mexico Operations Thwart Child, Family Illegal Aliens

Mexican government doing the job the American government won’t.

Via Stars and Stripes

Mexico’s largest crackdown in decades on illegal migration has decreased the flow of Central Americans trying to reach the United States, and has dramatically cut the number of child migrants and families, according to officials and eyewitness accounts along the perilous route.

Convoys of Mexican federal police and immigration service employees in southern Mexico have begun scouring the tracks of the infamous freight train known as “La Bestia,” or The Beast, hauling migrants from the rail cars and sending them to deportation centers. They have also set up moving roadblocks, checking the documents of passengers on interstate buses.[...]

Some of the Central American men say that instead of trying to cross into the United States they’ll now stay and look for work in Mexico. Many families have apparently decided not to attempt the journey through Mexico at all since news of the raids and checkpoints — combined with stepped up efforts in the U.S. and among Central American governments — reached their communities, said Carlos Solis, the manager of a shelter in Arriaga. He said the city, once bustling with migrants waiting to board the train, emptied out almost overnight.

White House Finally Responds To Petition Asking Obama To Demand Release Of Marine Held In Mexico

BwPwDnECIAI8A2k

The White House has finally responded to a petition from May calling for it to demand the release of Sgt. Andrew Tahmoressi. The petition was signed by 134,933 people before the cutoff time.

Does the White House demand the Marine’s release? What do you think?

OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE RESPONSE TO
Demand Release of U.S.M.C. Sgt. Tahmooressi Suffering with PTSD from Mexico Imprisonment
Response to We the People Petition on Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi

The U.S. State Department continues to provide extensive consular assistance to Mr. Tahmooressi, and will do so until his case is resolved. As in all cases when a U.S. citizen is arrested overseas, our goal is to see that Mr. Tahmooressi is treated fairly during the judicial process with the hope that he can receive the support, both emotional and medical, that he may require now and at the conclusion of the proceedings.

Mexico is one of the United States’ most important partners. We have close economic and cultural ties, and we work closely with them on numerous sensitive issues. While we will not go into detail about our private diplomatic discussions on this case, U.S. officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, have spoken to Mexican officials at the highest levels regarding Mr. Tahmooressi’s case.

Mexican authorities have been very willing to engage on this issue. They have provided prompt and continued consular access and visitations. As a result, the State Department has been able to provide regular updates on Mr. Tahmooressi’s condition to his family, Members of Congress, and the press.

We respect the rule of law and expect the judicial process of sovereign nations to protect other U.S. citizens who might find themselves in similar circumstances in the future. We will continue to monitor the case and work with the Mexican authorities as this case proceeds through the Mexican judicial system. We continue to urge the Mexican authorities to process this case expeditiously.

Translation: We haven’t any intention whatever of demanding his release.

Obama At Fundraiser: If You Watch Nightly News, Feels Like World Is Falling Apart

And the leader of the free world is helping it implode…

Update:

It’s all social media’s fault!

Via Breitbart:

At a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in New York Friday, President Obama attributed people’s pervasive sense the world is falling apart to “social media.”

“The world’s always been messy… we’re just noticing now in part because of social media,” Obama said.

“I can see why a lot of folks are troubled,” he said. But American military superiority has never been greater, he added, according to a pool report.

Obama has faced withering criticism for taking a lengthy vacation that included nine rounds of golf, while terrorist group Islamic State (ISIS) has been on the march in Iraq, an Ebola crisis is spreading in Africa, and Russia is making increasingly aggressive moves against Ukraine.

“If you watch the nightly news, it feels like the world is falling apart,” Obama said. He said this is a time of extraordinary changes around the world. He cited several hotspots, saying, “We’ve seen the barbarity of an organization like ISIL.”

The Middle East is challenging, “but it’s been challenging for quite a while,” Obama said, adding that this challenge was not comparable to the Cold War.

FBI National Domestic Threat Assessment Omits Islamist Terrorism

FBI terror report

CAIR approved.

Via WFB

The FBI’s most recent national threat assessment for domestic terrorism makes no reference to Islamist terror threats, despite last year’s Boston Marathon bombing and the 2009 Fort Hood shooting—both carried out by radical Muslim Americans.

Instead, the internal FBI intelligence report concluded in its 2013 assessment published this month that the threat to U.S. internal security from extremists is limited to attacks and activities by eight types of domestic extremist movements—none motivated by radical Islam.

They include anti-government militia groups and white supremacy extremists, along with “sovereign citizen” nationalists, and anarchists. Other domestic threat groups outlined by the FBI assessment include violent animal rights and environmentalist extremists, black separatists, anti- and pro-abortion activists, and Puerto Rican nationalists.[...]

On black separatists, the report warned that “high-profile racially charged crimes or events” could lead to an expansion of black separatist groups. The report identified three such groups as the New Black Panther Party, the Israelite Church of God in Jesus Christ, and the Black Hebrew Israelite group as extremists under FBI scrutiny.

An alternative assessment section in the report warned that radical black activists could “reinitiate violence at the historically high levels seen for the movement during the 1970s, when bombings, assassinations, hijackings, and hostage-takings occurred.”

Clueless Lib Alan Colmes: ISIS Not A Threat To America…

Gutfeld to Colmes: Why Do Liberals Have a Hard Time Identifying Actual Existential Evil
Tonight on “The Factor,” Greg Gutfeld took on Alan Colmes over those on the left who are downplaying the threat of ISIS.

“Why is it that lefties like you though […] have a hard time identifying actual existential evil unless it’s a Republican or a stay-at-home mom where you can condemn them?” Gutfeld asked.

He also asked Colmes what it is about the ISIS threat that is being overstated. Colmes said that ISIS couldn’t beat the Kurds in northern Iraq or the Shiites in southern Iraq. Colmes said the ISIS threat is being “ginned up” for American involvement.

“I guess what it is is they’re not reaching the Colmes level of barbarism. They’re just not vicious enough for you. What do you want, more genocide?” Gutfeld quipped.

‘ISIS Poses A Greater Threat To Britain Than We Have Known Before’: Prime Minister Warns An Attack On The UK Is Now ‘Highly Likely’

Cameron

Is the UK waking up?

Via Daily Mail

A terror attack on the UK is now ‘highly likely’, David Cameron said today.

The Prime Minister’s remarks came after the official threat level was raised from substantial to severe – the second highest – amid growing fears over the number of extremists returning to the UK from Iraq and Syria.

Mr Cameron said ISIS now posed a ‘greater and deeper threat to our security than we have known before’. The PM said terrorism was now ‘the most important issue facing this country today’.

He also announced that new laws will be passed to make it easier to remove extremists’ passports if there are concerns they will travel to the Middle East to join ISIS.

The Prime Minister’s remarks came after the Home Secretary Theresa May stressed that there is no information to suggest an attack is imminent, but warned: ‘We face a real and serious threat in the UK from international terrorism.’

At a hastily arranged press conference in Downing Street this afternoon, Mr Cameron said the intelligence and security services believed that at least 500 Britons had gone to fight in Syria and potentially Iraq.

Mr Cameron said ISIS was more dangerous than the Taliban and al Qaeda. He said: ‘In Afghanistan the Taliban were prepared to play host to al Qaeda, the terrorist organisation.

‘With IS (ISIS) we are facing a terrorist organisation not being hosted in a country but seeking to establish and then violently expand its own terrorist state.

‘With designs on expanding to Jordan, Lebanon, right up to the Turkish border, we could be facing a terrorist state on the shores of the Mediterranean and bordering a Nato member.’
