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

Islamic State Expands to Malaysia, Infiltrates Military

Islamic State Expands to Malaysia, Infiltrates Military | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

The Islamic State terror group is expanding operations in Southeast Asia where in Malaysia more than 100 Islamists, including some linked to the military, have been arrested in recent weeks, according to a State Department security report.

 

A recent worrying indicator was the discovery last month of an IS cell in Malaysia. The group had acquired 40 kilograms of explosives it intended to use in terrorist bombing attacks.

 

An even more troubling sign, according to the report, was the discovery that two people arrested in early April were members of the Royal Malaysian Air Force. The arrests raise “concern that ISIL has supporters within the country’s armed forces,” the report said.

 

Last month Malaysian officials disclosed that some 70 army soldiers were linked to the Islamic State, although it is not clear whether they were sympathizers or operational jihadists.

ISIS jihadi bride justifies kidnap and sexual abuse of Yazidi girls

ISIS jihadi bride justifies kidnap and sexual abuse of Yazidi girls | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

For years Islamic State has been enslaving and sexually abusing the women it captures - particularly from Iraq's minority Yazidi community - and sending the 'prettiest virgins' to depraved auctions, a United Nations envoy claimed this week.

ISIS has not only confirmed this to be true, but the terror group justifies the cruel sex crimes as Sunnah, which roughly translates as 'a way of life'.

Boko Haram Just Kidnapped At Least 400 More Children In Nigeria

Boko Haram Just Kidnapped At Least 400 More Children In Nigeria | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

This news comes just days after 70 decaying bodies with slit throats were found under a bridge near the town; it is widely believed that those killed were also victims of Boko Haram.


These latest news developments are an unfortunate reminder that although social media has significantly quieted down on this issue in recent months, #BringBackOurGirls is still an extremely urgent topic that warrants our unwavering attention. This bitter episode in international history is a glaring example of how vulnerable and objectified young Black girls are in their own communities. Even worse than that, it’s also an example of how governments that are built to protect can still undermine the value of their own citizens’ lives in weak and futile efforts to detract from their nations’ problems and to project a united front.

Osama bin Laden a paedophile? Terror leader’s extreme porn stash revealed

Osama bin Laden a paedophile? Terror leader’s extreme porn stash revealed | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

The nature of the pornography is considered so extreme that American officials refuse to release details, leading to intense speculation that it involves children or animals.

 

Under strict versions of Sharia law - of the type lauded by hardline Islamist groups ISIS and al-Qaeda - bin Laden would almost certainly have been beheaded, stoned to death, or thrown from a high building for possessing such material.

 

But they confirmed Navy SEALs also recovered a large digital collection of sex videos from the compound when they staged a secret mission to kill bin Laden in 2011.
