National Directorate of Security (NDS) – Afghanistan’s intelligence agency – has arrested a would-be suicide bomber who says he was gang-raped by Taliban commanders before sending him out for a suicide attack.
A statement issued Sunday by NDS states that the victim of the gang-rape planned to carry out a suicide attack on the police headquarters of Bagrami District of Kabul but he was arrested before he could reach to his target.
According to NDS statement rape cases are not unusual within the ranks of Taliban and Haqani network.
Bilal, the rape victim-turned suicide bomber has told NDS that he was gang-raped by Taliban commanders Muzamil, Hijrat alias Abuzar, Tahir and Hanzila in Bati Kot District of eastern Nangarhar province and then sent for a suicide attack.
Bilal narrates his rape story in a video released by NDS.
He says he was raped by a Taliban commander which was followed by another rape.
“Abuzar raped me. He closed my mouth, opened my trouser and raped me”, Abduzar said.
Bilal said after this he went home but when returned he faced the same again. This time it was not by a Taliban commander but another fellow suicide bomber.

Islamic State Bans Nike Products From Its “Caliphate” Claiming Name Sounds Like “Sexual Intercourse”…
Shopkeepers warned they will be publicly lashed (or worse) if caught selling Nike gear.
Islamic State (Isis) has banned Nike clothing and footwear in Syria and Iraq as part of a widespread crackdown on “sexual” words and terms.
The Islamist group has published a list of banned words, which include “bitch”, “whore” and “hussy” as well as religious terms such as “vicar” and “cross”.
IS distributed leaflets in Raqqa warning: “Beware guys, from serious foreign words,” and listed Nike alongside a list of 20 other banned words, which included musician Madonna.
It is not clear whether the group objects to the veteran singer’s name – which is religious – or her musical output but given IS’s feelings about music generally, it is likely to be both.
The group has gone a step further than simply banning the term Nike, which it claims sounds like the Arabic word “Neikh” [نكح] , which translates as “sexual intercourse”.
In leaflets distributed in Raqqa and published on 23 April by anti-IS Syrian activist group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently, IS warns shopkeepers or market traders who sell Nike products could be fined, jailed or publicly flogged.
Sorry, the smile is a little late tonight. With all the riot coverage, perhaps a toddler and a puppy is good relief…
Via USA Today:
Lt. Dan might have met a different fate in other circumstances.
But his owner, Karen Riddle, knew the white German shepherd puppy born with just one front paw was meant for something special.
And on Monday, the nine-week-old found a new home with Sapphyre Johnson, a toddler who lost both feet.
“A lot of kids don’t see other children or animals that have issues like they have,” said the 3-year-old’s father, Matthew Johnson, beaming as he watched his little girl toss a squeaky toy to the pup.
“This was a really nice thing,” he said, “and a really good thing for Sapphyre.”
CNN was too busy covering the White House Correspondent’s Dinner and told people to find out the news on Baltimore from Twitter.
We posted the beginning of this video yesterday, but in fact what happened after was worse. Here it is:
This note would be unbelievably offensive to any Afghan war veteran. But perhaps it is even more so because of what Matt Zeller does. We’ve mentioned Zeller before, because he started “No One Left Behind”. The purpose of the organization is to assist those who are in danger of being killed by the Taliban for having the nerve to help Americans by being interpreters. The U.S. promised them visas in exchange but have been slow in coming though on the promise.
Many of the men are in danger of death. Zeller is working to save them, because of our promise made to them. Few people who after leaving war would still be working to try to save people left behind, that’s the kind of man Matt Zeller is.
Here’s Zeller talking about his fight to save his best friend Janis Shinwari, an interpreter for their unit who help saved their lives.
Warning for strong language:
Obama and the State Department dithering over whether to send a global warming response team.
Following the tragic earthquake which shook Nepal yesterday claiming the lives of thousands and leaving many injured in a swathe of destruction, Israel is joining the international effort to offer relief to victims of the quake, as an Israeli Defense Force delegation heads out to Nepal.
Ahead of the team heading out for their mission, Brig. Gen. Dr. Dudu Dagan of the IDF Medical Corps spoke at a briefing about the field hospital his forces plan to build at the disaster site.
The Jewish State is world-renowned for dealing with emergencies, as well as for setting up small and effective field hospitals just about anywhere and fast.
As Dagan said, the field hospital the IDF intends to set up would be a tertiary hospital, “meaning we can operate, we can have intensive care, we can hospitalize, and even escort…the injured to Israel.”
At the same time, Col. Yoram Laredo, the commander of the Israeli delegation to Nepal said that even arriving safely to assist will be a challenge as Kathmandu airport was heavily damaged in the earthquake.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Laredo on Sunday, telling him “you are being sent on an important mission. This is the true face of Israel – a country that offers aid over any distance at such moments. Good luck. We are counting on you.”
Baltimore City Councilman Calls Out The “Pariah”, The Professional Traveling Protesters Trying To Exploit #FreddieGray
No one in official leadership has called ‘the traveling protester show’ quite as correctly as Baltimore City Councilman Brandon Scott. A reporter asks if there were outside agitators behind the violence as there were in Ferguson. The mayor says that they are looking into that, then refers to Councilman Scott.
From being outside there today, and actually talking to local organizers on the ground, they were telling me, saying, yes, these folks that were inciting this, maybe there were people from Baltimore participating, but the folks inciting this response, the incorrect response, were definitely from the outside. Again as the mayor said you can see some of the young guys from Baltimore saying on video, “Stop, stop, stop”, because this is not what they wanted. But we have to point out these pariah who will go from town to town, ruining people’s protests, ruining-using people’s emotions for their own benefit and their own agenda.
So Councilman Scott, here are some of those traveling protesters of whom you spoke, seeking to use Baltimore for their own agendas.

Get a job.
Four freed Guantanamo Bay detainees protested in front of the U.S. Embassy on Friday night, saying they were angry about being asked to leave a Uruguayan hotel that had been housing them and demanding Washington help them financially.
Adel bin Muhammad El Ouerghi said he had been asked to leave the Metro hotel, a budget inn where he and some of the other five former detainees periodically stayed.
The four Syrians, one Tunisian and one Palestinian have been housed in a four-bedroom house in Uruguay’s capital since the government took them in after their release in December. But “we are too many to stay in the house,” said El Ouerghi, who spent much of the last few months at the hotel.
As a humanitarian gesture, the men were invited to resettle in this poor South American country of 3.3 million people by President Jose Mujica, who has since left office.[…]
El Ouerghi said the men wanted to speak with the U.S. ambassador to Uruguay. He said the United States should help the men financially, an argument he and a few of the other former detainees have made repeatedly.
The herd can’t have any free thinkers.

“Last night a Facebook notification showed up on my screen. A friend had posted a picture to my wall. What I saw disgusted me.”
That’s how Zuri Davis, 19, describes the moment she saw a Facebook post targeting her for being a black, female supporter of Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).[…]
The post was later deleted and the individual later deactivated his Facebook page.
Davis told TheBlaze Friday that it was likely prompted by her commenting on a friend’s post about why taxes should be voluntary.
“I have a very obvious ‘Stand With Rand’ on my cover picture and my public posts indicate my preference,” she said. “He made the comment on his own timeline. It was screenshot by my friend and he sent it to me.”
The 19-year-old became “determined to set the record straight.”
‘[I] am really tired of people assuming they can make comments like that and think that they are acceptable,” she told TheBlaze. “That was not the first time I had received a comment like that. I get a lot of people that ask me how I can be black and a conservative.”
After some thought, the D.C.-area resident decided to pen a column in response. In it, she wrote that she has researched the 2016 candidates and concluded Paul is “the most liberty minded.” For that, she supports him.

Miami Assistant Police Chief Refuses To Pledge Allegiance To The Flag, Claims Exemption As Member Of The Honor Guard…
A Miami assistant police chief is getting the attention of Americans for seemingly refusing to salute the flag of the United States in a video.
Anita Najiy, who is believed by some to be a Muslim American, stands flatly while her brothers and sisters in blue recite The Pledge of Allegiance.
The Miami New Times reported:
Fraternal Order of Police President Javier Ortiz was in the front row at a promotional event last week at Miami Police College to film Najiy, a 32-year-veteran of the agency, during the pledge. As other members placed their hands over their hearts, Najiy kept her arms by her sides.
In doing so, Ortiz says, she failed to exhibit courtesy and etiquette that “must be exercised when wearing a law enforcement uniform.”
“If you’re not pledging allegiance to the United States, my question is what country are you pledging allegiance to?” Ortiz says. “Anyone who isn’t offended by that is not American, because when you become a U.S. citizen, you pledge allegiance to the U.S.”[…]
Furthermore, the Miami Herald states the view of Police Maj. Delrish Moss, who claims Najiy was just following military code:
Police Maj. Delrish Moss produced a section of the conduct code for U.S. military personnel, which he says supercedes police code. It reads: “When in uniform, indoors, stand at attention, remain silent, and face the flag.”
“That’s exactly what she did,” Moss said. “The Honor Guard follows U.S. military code. She was following U.S. military code. It had nothing to do with personal beliefs.”

Mayor Of Baltimore On #FreddieGray Riot Destruction: “We Also Gave Those Who Wished To Destroy, Space As Well”
I’m hoping that maybe she was trying to say she didn’t want cops to be hurt trying to stop the madness, which is a valid consideration. On the other hand, that really isn’t the way you should express it and you have to let them do their job.
Madame Mayor, here’s a little bit of that destruction you gave ‘space’ to:
She just gave fodder for lawsuits against the city(and out of the pockets of the taxpayers) for damage for failure to protect the businesses and people. Because, space…

Dozens of local Somali families gathered at the State Capitol Saturday afternoon, calling for the release of six terror suspects.
They’re calling for the government to stop what they see as attacks against them, and say the suspects were set up.
Six local Somalis were charged this week with trying to leave the country to join the terrorist group. These four men were taken into custody in Minneapolis a week ago. Two others were arrested in San Diego.
Federal agents also arrested Mahamed Said for allegedly making threats on Twitter in response to the arrests. One tweet from his account said if the men weren’t freed, there would be a “massacre.” Another message said “Best believe I’m gonna kill for those guys if they don’t free my brothers.”
The leadership and families at Saturday’s rally denounced any retaliation because of the arrests and asked for the public to hold judgment until their sons are found guilty or not guilty.
About 100 people turned out at the State Capitol, including three mothers of four of the men arrested. One of them made remarks saying she doesn’t believe her sons are terrorists.
A Somali community advocate says the community has agreed to peacefully protest the government and the confidential informant prosecutors built much of their case around.
Abdullahi Salim helped lead the protest. He says he’s a friend of all the arrested suspects, and can’t believe they could be involved.[…]
Salim also says the suspects’ character was never in question for him.
“These guys are really, really, really helpful guys,” he said. “Whenever you need help, they’re the first guys you call for help.”
Community organizers say they want to sit down with lawmakers and talk about programs to help Somali youth prosper and not be drawn into recruiting.

Khasama Sawant, a socialist and a member of the Seattle, Wash. City Council, is paying no fewer than five campaign staff employees as independent contractors — thus evading the payment of payroll taxes, overtime, social security and other insurance.
The avowed protector of workers from the evils of capitalist exploitation has spent $12,000 paying her employees so far as she fights for reelection, according to KIRO Radio.
“Sawant has been skirting the rules by not paying into the public workers’ safety net,” Josh Feit of state political blog PubliCola explained, according to KIRO.
The socialist does not appear to have provided any benefits to her five employees beyond cash payments for services provided.

A banner promoting the play “Romeo & Juliet” has been taken down after some parents of students at Westlake High School shared concerns over the use of a Confederate flag.
Parents Sedrick Blount and Angelina Sanchez couldn’t believe the school allowed the Confederate flag to be used in a banner. They were told the flag represented the theme “Romeo & Juliet” post-Civil war.
“That represents hatred, racism and just pure evil,” Blount said, while Sanchez said: “The Confederate flag is just not a good advertisement.”
Parents say the banner had been up for a few days but it was taken down Friday afternoon after they took their concerns to school administrators and the superintendent.
They say the banner was offensive and shouldn’t have gone up in the first place.
“It can leave a confusing message to children who are vulnerable. It’s like, ‘What are we saying to them?’ ” Sanchez said.
But Stella Mandell, who came to see her niece perform in the play, said they banner was symbolic of what the play was about.
“I’m just looking at it from an artistic point of view because we are supporting the arts. This is symbolic of what the play is about. Bottom line,” she said.
Jacquelyn Aguilera, a Westlake High School senior, said: “I think the school should try to be a little more culturally conscientious.”
“I have full faith that they will going forward not make these types of mistakes,” Blount added.
CBSLA reached out to the superintendent’s office for comment Friday during business hours but that call wasn’t returned. However, concerned parents said they received an apology from administrators.
