Yazidi Boy, Four, Is Forced To Join ISIS Terror Camp To Learn Shariah Law, The Quran And Given Sword To Behead His Own Mother

From the Daily Mail:
A Yazidi mother has told how her four-year-old son was taken from her to join an ISIS terror training camp where he was forced to learn passages from the Koran, Sharia Law and even given a sword and taught how to behead his own mother.

Bohar – not her real name - could do little but watch as her young son was handed a sword by their captors, who told him 'this is to kill your mother'.

Later, he revealed they were training him to chop people's heads off, shoot guns and hate his own people, at an age when most children around the world are just learning to read.

Her son was never forced to carry out the perverted act - but his mother is adamant if her son had stayed he would have been forced to kill for ISIS.

In an exclusive interview, Bohar, 35, told MailOnline: 'ISIS trained my son to learn the Koran, how to speak Arabic, how to pray and how to use a sword.’

Speaking from a refugee camp in Dohuk, northern Iraq, Bohar said: 'They told him that Yazidis are Kafir, Arabic for ‘non-believers’ and told him he had to fight them.

‘This one time the ISIS man gave him a sword and said this is to kill your mother.'

Bohar, her son Hamo, not his real name, and her three other children were captured by ISIS last August, just south-east of Sinjar Mountain.

Unable to flee, they were imprisoned with 2,000 other Yazidi, from where they were shunted between prisons in Tal-Afar and Badush in Mosul - as evil ISIS militants decided their fate.

'In Badush prison ISIS took my eldest daughter and my eldest son who is 12. They took them to Syria,' she said.

'Some friends [later] told me my daughter and son were taken to Raqqa, where I believe they still are,' she added...

Iran's Working Mums Face Sack After Maternity Leave

From The Tribune:
Tens of thousands of working mothers have been sacked in Iran since the start of 2014 because employers found cheaper staff, an official said Friday, warning that a new maternity pay policy remains unfunded.

The comments highlight the financial pressures on families and on the Iranian government, despite this month’s nuclear deal with world powers that could pave the way for an economic rebound.

An austerity budget passed in March after a precipitous drop in global oil prices has left key Tehran ministries, including education and oil, struggling to pay wages.

A new law enshrining nine months of paid leave for mothers has been passed yet there are no funds to pay its estimated 3.2 trillion rial ($985 million) bill, according to welfare bosses.

“So far, not one rial has been allocated,” Mohammad Hassan Zeda, a deputy at Iran’s Social Security Organisation, told the ISNA news agency in an interview.

He said studies showed that from 145,000 women who had gone on a six-month maternity leave in the past 18 months, 47,000 of them — almost a third — were sacked when they tried to return.

“This is because right now due to the situation in the job market, there are many individuals with higher education who are prepared to work for lower salaries,” said Zeda, noting the trend would likely worsen.

“If maternity leave is increased to nine months, the number of women getting sacked, upon returning to work after using maternity leave, will increase much more.”

According to the Statistical Centre of Iran, the unemployment rate was 10.8 percent in 2014, though unofficial sources estimate the number is as high as 20 percent.

Unemployment is particularly bad among women (19.2 percent) and youths (25 percent).

Underemployment has also become common in Iran, according to the World Bank, with a weak labour market leaving only 36.7 percent of the population economically active.

Zeda said the nine-month maternity leave term can start if the government allocates the money, but officials are “not allowed to implement a law for which no financial resources have been provided.”

Around 160,000 working women would be eligible for the nine-month leave, he said.

After a deep recession, Iran returned to growth of three percent last year, partly due to limited sanctions relief under an interim nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers.

A final deal struck on July 14 in Vienna stands to lift all UN, US and Europeans sanctions imposed on Iran as punishment for its disputed nuclear activities, raising hopes of better economic and job prospects.

Taliban Look Set To Clash With ISIS

From the Daily Mail:
Afghanistan's unstable security situation could be set to worsen with fears growing that Taliban defections to a small but growing ISIS franchise group may lead to further violence.

Following the Taliban's official confirmation of Mullah Omar's death, fears have started to grow that a ISIS franchise has the potential to pose a serious challenge to the jihadi group in Afganistan.

ISIS's Khorasan branch (wilayat al-Khorasan) remains a small group of militants but it could now receive significant financial backing from ISIS with signs of Taliban instability.

News has emerged that Omar's successor, Mullah Akhtar Mansour, may not have received full backing from members of the shura council.

If true, this suggest that Mansour's position as leader of the group may not be completely secure and could face the threat of other Taliban senior figures vying for power.

The new leader of the Afghan Taliban has called for unity among his fighters, promising to continue insurgency in his first message.

The audio message purportedly from Mullah Akhtar Mansoor also included comments about peace talks, though it was not immediately clear whether he supported them or not....

Mosques And Massacres

By William Kilpatrick for Crisis Magazine:
On June 26, Saif Rezgui walked on to a beach in Tunisia and opened fire on German, British, and Irish sunbathers in front of the Imperial Marhaba resort hotel, killing 39 and wounding dozens more. If various world leaders are to be believed, the massacre had nothing to do with Islam. In response to the attack which left thirty British citizens dead, Prime Minister David Cameron said the terrorism “is not in the name of Islam. Islam is a religion of peace.” A day later, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott assured the world that “what’s being done by Daesh [the Islamic State] has nothing to do with God, it has nothing to do with religion.”

There was one notable exception to the usual nothing-to-do-with-Islam mantra. Immediately after the attack, Tunisia’s prime minister, Habib Essid, ordered the closing of 80 mosques.

Of course, the leader of a 98 percent Muslim country can’t be expected to understand Islam nearly as well as the leaders of Britain and Australia. Nevertheless, Essid’s action provides food for thought. Mosques, after all, do have something to do with Islam. “Some mosques continue to spread their propaganda and their venom to promote terrorism,” Essid reportedly said. “No mosque that does not conform to the law will be tolerated.”

According to a Reuters report, Rezgui was “a dedicated student from a stable family who enjoyed partying and practiced break dancing.” Until, that is, “he appeared to have come into contact with extremist preachers about six months ago.”

Where do you meet extremist preachers? In extremist mosques, of course—the same sort of places attended by the two terrorists who two months previously had killed 21 foreign tourists at the Bardo Museum in Tunis. According to Reuters, “the two Bardo gunmen were also radicalized in their local mosques by hardliners.”

Another indication that the beach massacre might have had something to do with Islam is that Rezgui only targeted foreigners. As he pursued the tourists, he shouted to Tunisians to “get out of the way.” Might that have had something to do with the fact that the Tunisians were likely to be Muslims and the tourists were likely not? One other confirmation of the religious motivation for the attack came from the Islamic State. A spokesman for IS praised the attack as an operation against a “bordello”—a reference to the immodest dress of the beachgoers. Apparently, cartoons of Muhammad are not the only thing that hardline Muslims consider as provocation sufficient to warrant murder.

Not all mosques are centers of extremist radicalization. On the other hand, it’s likely that the average Westerner grossly underestimates the percentage of radical mosques. Fr. Samir Khalil Samir, an Egyptian Jesuit who is also an expert on Islam, writes:

In many Muslim countries … the mosques are monitored by the police on Friday. There is a simple reason for this: many political decisions start from the mosque during the Friday khutba [sermon]. Historians of Islam know that many riots and revolutions were launched from the mosques and that jihad is often proclaimed during the khutba.

Not coincidentally, many of the Arab Spring demonstrations in 2011 were set in motion from mosques following Friday prayers. And again, it’s probably no coincidence that Rezgui scheduled his massacre for a Friday during the holy month of Ramadan.

It’s tempting to think that the mosque-mayhem connection is something that’s peculiar to Arab societies, but four separate studies of American mosques revealed that about eighty percent of them provide extremist literature and occasionally feature extremist preachers. While this doesn’t mean that every American mosque is a hotbed of terrorism, it does suggest cause for concern. For example, two very prominent American mosques which have long been thought to be of the moderate mainstream kind are now known to be connected with numerous terrorists, some of them of the high-profile variety. Major Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood jihadist, was mentored at the Dar Al-Hijra Mosque in Falls Church, Virginia. So were three of the 9/11 hijackers. And the person who was mentoring them was Anwar Al-Awlaki, who later became one of the chiefs of operations for Al-Qaeda in Yemen. Meanwhile, the Islamic Society of Boston has two mosques (one in Boston and one in Cambridge) which were attended by the Tsarnaev brothers and nearly a dozen other known terrorists, including the founder of Boston’s Islamic society, Abduraham Alamoudi, who is currently serving a twenty-three-year prison term for terror-related activities.

Christians assume that mosques, like churches, are simply places of prayer. Many of them are, but many mosques are also places of recruitment and radicalization—staging areas for jihad. Subsequent to the beach massacre, weapons caches were found in forty Tunisian mosques. As a popular Muslim poem puts it, “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets, and the faithful our soldiers.”

Not all Muslims think of mosques in this way, but as Prime Minister Essid understands, a not insignificant number do. He is not alone in this assessment. As Fr. Samir notes, Muslim governments have historically kept a close eye on mosque activities. Muslim leaders may give lip service to the notion that violence has nothing to do with Islam, but their actions tell a different story. Western leaders need to start paying attention.

Arabs Destroy Holocaust Survivor Site In Land Grab Attempt

From Arutz 7:
In a shocking land grab attempt at a site where Arab activists have long been trying to steal state land, Arab assailants from a village near Netzer in Judea's Gush Etzion on Thursday bulldozed a nearby memorial observation point with a tractor.

Women in Green (WIG) established the observation point with a pergola dedicated to the memory of Holocaust survivors, as well as a memorial to a Holocaust survivor. While the Arabs were still demolishing the site the heads of WIG Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar received a tip off and rushed to the scene.

The two were accompanied by members of the Committee for Netzer, Gush Etzion lands commissioner Moshe Frucht and the local security personnel, and together were able to stop the Arabs from wreaking further destruction to the memorial site.

In parallel, another Arab tractor entered a different section of Netzer and tried to seized large portions of land that recently was declared as state land, reports WIG.

There has been an ongoing Arab battle to grab state land in Netzer that has lasted many years, with WIG leading efforts to control and develop state land and thereby prevent illegal settlement on it by Arab squatters.

Remarking on the controversial demolition of two buildings in Beit El just north of Jerusalem on Wednesday on the order of the Supreme Court and despite the near completion of the buildings' legalization, Katsover and Matar said in a joint statement, "the tailwind from Beit El has arrived to Gush Etzion."

"The Arabs destroyed the memorial site dedicated to the memory of Sarah Spiegel, obm (of blessed memory), known for her love of Israel, fearlessly and in broad daylight. They destroyed the large pergola, benches, trees," said the two.

"Let’s see how the bleeding hearts cry out and make excuses now that the destruction is over. The Arabs’ audacity is rising more and more while the image of the Israeli government becomes lower and lower."

The WIG heads promised that "we will return to set up the site and the observation point overlooking Gush Etzion Junction, Alon Shvut, Elazar, Efrat and Rosh Tzurim."

Palestinian Authority, With Help Of John Kerry, Freed Palestinian Terrorists Who Burned Jewish Family To Death

From FrontPageMag:
Nathaniel Weiss was 3 years old when Muslim terrorists burned him to death. Ephraim Weiss was 10 months old.

The Moses children were children.

The Palestinian Authority called their murderers heroes and Obama and Kerry obtained their release.

While the Israeli government is falling over itself to condemn a supposed arson attack, the government released Muslim terrorists involved in a horrific arson to get the PLO to peace negotiations. It did this under pressure from Obama, Kerry and the European Union...

UK: Young Mother Stole Twin's Passport, Traveled To Syria

But the worst part is that she's given a pass because she has a child. Her child is at great risk with such a mother.

From the Daily Mail:
A young mother who stole her twin sister's passport in order to join ISIS for a second time has escaped a jail sentence after a judge told her it was an exceptional case.

Jamila Henry, 22, was arrested in Turkey in March as she prepared to board a bus in the capital Ankara, because Turkish police suspected she was heading to join ISIS.

It emerged that she was travelling on her twin's passport and the two sisters could not be more different: one was a self-confessed 'party girl' who was supposed to be on a weekend in Amsterdam with friends when her passport was taken by her sister.

The other was a Muslim convert who was making her second visit to Syria, after returning to Britain with her baby son, a few months earlier.

Prosecutors dropped terrorism charges against Jamila even though she admitted spending six months living in Raqqa, the self-declared capital of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), with her two-year-old son.

She brought him back to London but disappeared back to Syria four months later without him because she was missing her friends there.

Jamila had told police officers as she was driven from Luton Airport to London for questioning, that she had been 'lonely and had she had been to Turkey and Syria to see friends.'

She said she had a friend in Atmeh, a refugee camp just over the border from Turkey, and 'expressed a desire to look after Muslim children who had suffered,' Brinder Soora, prosecuting, said...

Ayatolleh Khameini Publishes Book About Tricking America And Destroying Israel

From Amir Taheri for the New York Post:
While Secretary of State John Kerry and President Obama do their best to paper over the brutality of the Iranian regime and force through a nuclear agreement, Iran’s religious leader has another issue on his mind: The destruction of Israel.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has published a new book called “Palestine,” a 416-page screed against the Jewish state. A blurb on the back cover credits Khamenei as “The flagbearer of Jihad to liberate Jerusalem.”

A friend sent me a copy from Iran, the only place the book is currently available, though an Arabic translation is promised soon.

Obama administration officials likely hope that no American even hears about it.

Khamenei makes his position clear from the start: Israel has no right to exist as a state.
He uses three words. One is “nabudi” which means “annihilation.” The other is “imha” which means “fading out,” and, finally, there is “zaval” meaning “effacement.”

Khamenei claims that his strategy for the destruction of Israel is not based on anti-Semitism, which he describes as a European phenomenon. His position is instead based on “well-established Islamic principles.”

One such principle is that a land that falls under Muslim rule, even briefly, can never again be ceded to non-Muslims. What matters in Islam is ownership of a land’s government, even if the majority of inhabitants are non-Muslims.

Khomeinists are not alone in this belief.

Dozens of maps circulate in the Muslim world showing the extent of Muslim territories lost to the Infidel that must be recovered.

These include large parts of Russia and Europe, almost a third of China, the whole of India and parts of The Philippines and Thailand.

However, according to Khamenei, Israel, which he labels as “adou” and “doshman,” meaning “enemy” and “foe,” is a special case for three reasons.

The first is that it is a loyal “ally of the American Great Satan” and a key element in its “evil scheme” to dominate “the heartland of the Ummah.”

The second reason is that Israel has waged war on Muslims on a number of occasions, thus becoming “a hostile infidel,” or “kaffir al-harbi.”

Finally, Israel is a special case because it occupies Jerusalem, which Khamenei describes as “Islam’s third Holy City.”

He intimates that one of his “most cherished wishes” is to one day pray in Jerusalem...

Hillary Clinton Email Saga

From a NY Post report about Hillary Clinton's emails, showing the Obama administration's unfair pressure on Israel:
  • One e-mail that got blacked out shows former Clinton administration National Security Adviser Sandy Berger coaching Clinton on how to pressure Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in negotiations with the Palestinians.
  • Another e-mail recently classified by the State Department blacked out information provided to Clinton before a phone call with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
