"At the same time, I suggested she could read passages from the Koran for support, as we’re both Muslims."

 

However, when he arrived home the father found his child dead with 39 wounds to its body, the majority of which were caused by the holy book.

 

The 28-year-old mother was subsequently charged with murder, with an alternative charge of aggravated manslaughter.

 

“The woman intentionally killed her child. She smothered it to death and the Koran was the murder weapon,” prosecutor Anders Johansson said in court, according to Expressen.

Obama Threatened to Shoot Down IAF Iran Strike

Obama Threatened to Shoot Down IAF Iran Strike | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.

Following Obama's threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.

According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel's back.

ISIS Rapes And Kills Women After Abducting 150 Christians, "I See Blood Everywhere" | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Some reports indicate that Islamic State militants killed some hostages. ‘Jihadists have taken a lot of people, including women, the elderly and children,’ said a local source, who requested anonymity for security reasons. ‘They burnt their houses, and torched a church.’ And ‘At least six’ people were killed. The terrorists ‘also raped a woman before killing her.’

 

After they were pushed out of Kobane, ‘they shifted to these villages to seize more land,’ Mgr Zenari explained. Now Christians feel abandoned, he added.  However, everyone has suffered. ‘I see blood everywhere, in the cities, in the neighbourhoods. The desert has changed colour. It is no longer golden yellow but blood red.'”

Warning over how ISIS could become pirates of the Mediterannean

Warning over how ISIS could become pirates of the Mediterannean | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Italian officials are worried Islamic State - who threatened to 'flood' Europe with migrants - is working with human traffickers who ship tens of thousands of migrants to Europe every month.

 

Officials at the Italian Ministry of Defence have warned that IS 'could replicate in the Mediterranean the scenario that has dominated the maritime region between Somalia and Aden for the last ten years'.


Rampant piracy has characterised shipping in the Gulf of Aden between Somalia and Yemen since the civil war in the 1990s plunged the country into lawlessness and clan warfare.


The international community struggled to get to grips with the armed attacks because of the impossibility for Western forces to patrol 2.5 million square miles of ocean with just a few dozen ships.

To fight extremism, Obama calls on US to embrace its Muslims

To fight extremism, Obama calls on US to embrace its Muslims | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

In the fight against violent extremism, President Barack Obama has argued the U.S. has one thing going for it that Europe doesn't: a long tradition of warmly embracing its immigrants, including Muslims.

 

With the Islamic State group spreading and terrorists gaining strength in the Mideast and Africa, Obama has sought to use this week's White House summit on violent extremism to urge the world to broaden its response far beyond military interventions. U.S. airstrikes have managed to blunt some of the militants' gains in Iraq and Syria, but they don't address the extreme ideologies that underpin deadly groups such as IS, al-Shabab and Boko Haram.

In the video, the hostages are seen feverishly whispering in their final hour, but it’s their chosen words that put us in awe.

 

Some screamed “Yeshua,” the name of Jesus in their moment of suffering.

 

“The name of Jesus was the last word on their lips,” said Bishop Mina, and we can believe that was the first word on their lips as they entered eternity.

Islamic State Executes Over 40 people In Iraq | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

On Tuesday The Islamic State (IS) executed over 40 people in Iraq’s western province of Anbar, an official said. IS militants captured over 40 people from the albu-Obeid Sunni tribe, including policemen and members of the government-backed Sahwa paramilitary group, in al-Baghdadi town, and executed them, Xinhua reported.

IS militants laid siege to a neighbourhood in the town housing dozens of families of security members and Sahwa fighters, said the official. He added that residents were fighting back IS attacks but were facing acute shortage of food, drinking water, weapons and ammunition. The targeted town is located near the major air base of Ain al-Asad which houses hundreds of US troops. The battles in and near al-Baghdadi have continued since Thursday when IS militants attacked the town and nearby Ain al-Asad air base and seized the town.

Pakistani Taliban Carry Out Deadly Suicide Attack at Police Headquarters in Lahore | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

At least six people were killed in Tuesday's suicide bombing, which was the third major incident in Pakistan since the government revoked its moratorium on the death penalty in December.

 

"It appears to be a suicide bomber who approached the police lines and exploded himself when he was denied entry," Lahore Police Chief Amin Wains told reporters after the bombing. "We had made full security measurements, and that is why they were not able to enter the police lines area."

 

After the suicide attacker detonated the bomb outside of the offices, witnesses said the resulting blast blew body parts into the street. Wains told VICE News that a severed head was found at the scene.

 

"I saw two headless dead bodies lying on the spot" after the explosion, shopkeeper Ashraf Ali told VICE News. "Within no time, the adjoining shops, cars, and several motorcycles caught fire."

But the crucial piece of the jigsaw fell into place when when Emwazi used a laptop in Syria to download web design software which was being offered on a free trial.

Instead of buying the software with a credit card, he used a student code from London’s Westminster University when he studied computer technology.

The number contained unique information which gave his date of birth, what he studied, and where, and information on his student loan.

This is extremely important to the entire world to find. It talks about he was an idiot and used his student ID to purchase software and now we have his name, birthday and everything about him. This makes ISIS seem less scary because they are not anonymous. This article must be spread for all to see so we can hopefully find him; however, he will probably be a coward and hide.

'Our information is that women are being passed around as sex slaves after their partners are killed,' Anthony Byrne, the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security's deputy chair told the Daily Telegraph.


Published in full by the Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor, the list of 'Questions and Answers on Taking Captives and Slaves' states that it is acceptable to have sexual intercourse with children, beat female slaves and sell them.


'It is permissible to buy, sell, or give as a gift female captives and slaves, for they are merely property, which can be disposed of as long as that doesn't cause [the Muslim ummah] any harm or damage,' the rules state.

 

'It is permissible to have intercourse with the female slave who hasn't reached puberty if she is fit for intercourse; however if she is not fit for intercourse, then it is enough to enjoy her without intercourse.'

ISIS has threatened to flood Europe with half a million migrants from Libya in a 'psychological' attack against the West, it was claimed today.  Transcripts of telephone intercepts published in Italy claim to provide evidence that ISIS is threatening to send 500,000 migrants simultaneously out to sea in hundreds of boats in a 'psychological weapon' against Europe if there is military intervention against them in Libya.  Many would be at risk of drowning with rescue services unable to cope. But authorities fear that if numbers on this scale arrived, European cities could witness riots.  Separately, the militants hope to cement their control of Libya then cross the Mediterranean disguised as refugees.

Extremist groups such as ISIS could cause major trouble in heavily populated regions such as Europe.  It could damage the economy and infrastructure, which is exactly what i think ISIS is trying to do.

'We Can't Kill Our Way Out': State Dept Cites 'Lack of Jobs' for Rise of ISIS

"We’re killing a lot of them and we’re going to keep killing more of them, so are the Egyptians, so are the Jordanians. They’re in this fight with us. But we cannot win this war by killing them, we cannot kill our way out of this war," Harf said. "We need, in the longer term, medium and longer term, to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs."

A New Church Policy toward Islam

A New Church Policy toward Islam | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

In a speech to Egypt’s top Islamic authorities, President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi called for a “religious revolution.” Why? Because he believes that Islam has problems: “That corpus of texts and ideas that we have sacralized over the centuries … is antagonizing the entire world.” He continued: “Is it possible that 1.6 billion people should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants…?” He then warned the assembled imams not to “remain trapped within this mindset” but to “reflect on it from a more enlightened perspective.”


However you interpret el-Sisi’s remarks, it’s clear that he believes the problems of Islam are not the fault of a tiny minority. He seems to think that a great many are to blame, and he particularly singles out Islamic religious leaders, whom he holds “responsible before Allah” on “Judgment Day.” And, most tellingly, he refuses to indulge in the this-has-nothing-to-do-with-Islam excuse favored by Western leaders. Rather, he states that “the entire umma [Islamic world]” is “a source of anxiety, danger, killing and destruction for the rest of the world” because of “the thinking that we hold most sacred.”
