The Islamists are giving the UN a heads up. Update to a previous story.

Via JPost

The United Nations on Friday said it had been informed that the Islamist militants who seized 44 Fijian peacekeepers in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights did so “for their own protection” and that all the detained blue-helmeted soldiers are safe.

UN officials had been trying to establish the whereabouts of the peacekeepers, who were seized by al-Qaeda-linked rebels this week inside Syrian territory along the rocky frontier between Syria and the Golan Heights.

“The United Nations has received assurances from credible sources that the 44 peacekeepers from the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) who were taken from their position on the morning of Thursday, 28 August, are safe and in good health,” the UN press office said in a statement.

It added that UNDOF has not had direct contact with them. [...]

All 116 peacekeepers are part of UNDOF, a UN force that has monitored the disengagement zone between Israel and Syria since 1974 in the wake of the 1973 Arab-Israeli War. UNDOF has 1,223 peacekeepers from six countries operating in the zone.

Saudi King: “Certain” That Terrorists Will “Reach” Europe Within Month, U.S. Within 2, If Not Stopped

This is a effort to stop the monster they unleashed before it comes back and eats them alive. That said, if we don’t whack ISIS now, we will pay for it much more later.

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — The king of Saudi Arabia has warned that terrorist groups will attack Europe and the United States unless they are faced with collective “power and speed” from the international community.

King Abdullah’s comments come as the Islamic State group has seized wide swaths of land across Syria and Iraq.

While not mentioning any terrorist groups by name, Abdullah said that he is “certain that after a month they will reach Europe and, after another month, America.”

The king’s comments late Friday appeared aimed at drawing Washington and NATO forces into a wider fight against extremists in the region. Saudi Arabia has backed rebels fighting in Syria, but is concerned that extremists there could turn their weapons on the kingdom.

State media carried the king’s comments to foreign ambassadors early Saturday.

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel will visit Turkey as the U.S. government tries to build a “coalition of the willing” take on Islamic militants in Syria, the Pentagon announced Friday.

“Turkey is a key NATO ally. And given its border with Syria and Iraq, they share our deep concerns with … the regional threat posed by ISIL,” Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby told reporters.

ISIL is one of the acronyms used to refer to the militant group the Islamic State, which has taken over large swathes of Syria and Iraq in recent months.

The U.S. military has been bombing Islamic State targets in Iraq since Aug. 8, and consideration is being given to expanding the air campaign into neighboring Syria.

“Can [the Islamic State] be defeated without addressing that part of their organization which resides in Syria? The answer is no,” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Martin Dempsey told reporters last week.

The White House has asked the Pentagon to present military options along these lines.

U.S. Officials Say Almost A Dozen Men From Minnesota Are Fighting With ISIS In Syria…

With any luck they will either self-detonate or take a bullet to the head before they can return here.

Via Daily Mail:

It has emerged that almost a dozen Minnesotans have left the Midwestern state to take up arms for Islamic extremist groups in the country.

The revelation follows the news that two Minnesota men were killed fighting for ISIS in Syria this past weekend. The White House confirmed that Douglas McArthur McCain, 33, who went to high school in Minneapolis, died while fighting Free Syrian Army rebels in Syria with the Islamic State.

A Minneapolis father-of-nine, Abdirahmaan Muhumed, 29, has been confirmed as the second American jihadi to die fighting for ISIS in Syria.

They are among almost a dozen Minnesotans out of the estimated 100 Americans who have joined the fighting in Syria.

The FBI’s Chief Division Counsel in Minneapolis, Kyle Loven, told ABC News that the phenomenon began in 2007, with Somali-Americans from the state traveling to Somalia.

‘In Somalia, it started as a nationalistic call… [but] we’ve now seen where some individuals perhaps are not interested or not inclined to travel to Somalia, [they] start to branch out to other hot spots around the globe, obviously Syria being among them,’ Loven told ABC.

The Pastor will need jury nullification.

Via Times-Picayune

The Algiers pastor arrested in a shooting outside his church struck a fleeing copper thief twice in the back of the head, an arrest warrant obtained Friday says.

At first, the truck carrying two men drove toward the Rev. W.L.T. Littleton, so Littleton opened fire, the warrant says. But he kept shooting after the truck passed, the warrant says, which is the basis for a charge of aggravated battery.

The man struck in the head, Rodney Mitchell, 50, was in serious condition at an area hospital. The driver of the truck, Joseph Cross, 34, was booked on a copper theft charge.

Littleton, 62, a former New Orleans police officer and a local radio personality, was not immediately arrested after the shooting Wednesday. He was questioned by NOPD after turning over his gun. But he was allowed to go home, and turned himself in about 24 hours after the shooting.

Police said Littleton spotted the suspicious men outside the Greater Morning Star Baptist Church on Vallette Street around 4:20 p.m. He got his semi-automatic pistol from his SUV and confronted the two men, Littleton told police.

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”.
