"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.

Bristol Somali sex abuse gang: The full horrific story

Bristol Somali sex abuse gang: The full horrific story | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

A SICKENING underworld of sexual exploitation has been dismantled in Bristol – and can now be made public for the first time.

 

In all, 13 Somali men have been convicted of 31 sex crimes against seven vulnerable teenage girls.

 

They used and abused their victims, exploiting their trust and, in some cases, trafficking them across the city to exploit them.

 

Including drug offences, prison sentences totalling more than 75 years have already been imposed at the crown court, with punishments lasting decades more to follow.

 

The youngest victims were only 13 when they were shared around and forced to commit degrading and emotionally-damaging sex acts.

Islamic State Makes Millions in Ransom | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

The Islamic State (IS or ISIS) terror group operating in Iraq and Syria has accumulated a vast sum of $35-45 million over the past year in ransom money, an expert on the issue told a UN commission this week.

 

Yotsna Lalji, a UN specialist monitoring al-Qaeda, told a meeting of the UN Security Council’s Counter-Terrorism Committee that an estimated $120 million in ransom money was paid to terrorist groups around the world between 2004 and 2012.

 

Forbes Israel has ranked the Islamic State as the richest terror group in history, with $2 billion in annual revenues. Hamas came in second with a $1 billion yearly income.

Jihadi attack on UK 'inevitable'

Jihadi attack on UK 'inevitable' | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Britain is facing an ‘almost inevitable’ attack by fanatics who have been ‘militarised’ by Islamic State, according to police and security officials.

 

In speeches today, Theresa May and senior police will warn that the ‘diverse’ terrorist threat posed by jihadis returning from Syria and Iraq is one of the greatest this country has ever faced.

 

Potential attacks could range from a ‘lone wolf’ beheading in a crowded shopping centre or street, to a bomb plot using fertiliser stolen from British farms. One Whitehall official told the Mail: ‘It is almost inevitable that something is going to happen in the next few months.’

Kenya bus attack: 'non-Muslims singled out and shot'

Kenya bus attack: 'non-Muslims singled out and shot' | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

The Islamist group al-Shabaab claims responsibility for killing 28 non-Muslims on a bus in Kenya. Witnesses said the gunmen spared Muslim passengers but ordered the rest off the bus to their death.

 

"The non-Somalis were ordered to read some verses of the holy Koran, and those who failed to read were ordered to lie down. One by one they were shot in the head at point blank range."


"The Mujahideen successfully carried out an operation near Mandera early this morning, which resulted in the perishing of 28 crusaders, as a revenge for the crimes committed by the Kenyan crusaders against our Muslim brethren in Mombasa," Sheikh Ali Mohamud Rage, al Shabaab's spokesman, said in a statement.


Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack on Nairobi's Westgate shopping mall last year that killed at least 67 people and attacks in Lamu in June and July that killed at least 65.

A 26-Year-Old Woman Is ISIS’s Last American Hostage

A 26-Year-Old Woman Is ISIS’s Last American Hostage | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

The extremists didn’t show her off in their latest snuff film. And her family doesn’t want her name released. But what is known about ISIS’s remaining U.S. captive is heartbreaking.

 

ISIS has killed Muslim women, as well as children. But it has never murdered a female Western hostage on camera. Doing so would mark a radical departure even for a group that has relied on bloody propaganda to lure foreign fighters to its ranks.

Latest IS Beheading Video: New Levels of Ritual Madness

Latest IS Beheading Video: New Levels of Ritual Madness | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

On November 16, 2014 the Islamic State released a 16-minute video that displayed the severed head of 26-year-old former U.S. Army Ranger Peter Kassig. The video was characteristically different than the four previous Islamic State beheading videos of American and British hostages by the man known as Jihadi John. Although there have been many previous videos of mass beheadings by various al Qaeda-linked groups and Islamic State militants, this film is unique in content and quality. The Islamic State is the first terrorist group to film and stage a formalized ritual mass beheading. Shot in high definition, slickly produced and edited with Hollywood precision, 19 jihadists simultaneously behead 19 Syrian air force pilots and military officers in a ceremonial ritual execution.

ISIS video claims beheading of US hostage Peter Kassig | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Islamic State militants have beheaded US aid worker Peter Kassig even though he converted to Islam, a video posted on social media shows.

 

After conversion during captivity, Kassig took the name Abdul-Rahman.


Kassig, 26, was captured on October 1, 2013, by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) militants on his way to the city of Deir Ezzour in eastern Syria.

 

The video reportedly shows Jihadi John murdering Kassig. This comes despite earlier reports that the extremist, who has executed other UK and US hostages, was wounded in an airstrike on a top-level extremists’ meeting in Iraq last week.

United Arab Emirates Designates Two American Muslim Groups As Terrorist Orgs

The United Arab Emirates has officially designated 83 groups as terrorist organizations, including two based in the U.S., the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim American Society.

 

CAIR’s designation is interesting given its high profile here in the U.S.

 

The group was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case in 2007. Leaders of the Holy Land Foundation were found guilty of aiding Hamas, which the U.S. has designated as a terrorist organization.

45 killed in Boko Haram attack in Nigeria | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Members of the armed terrorist group Boko Haram have killed at least 45 people in a village near Mafa city in the northern Nigerian state of Borno, media reported citing municipal sources and witnesses. The radicals attacked Azaya Kura Wednesday, just one day before the Nigerian government refused to extend the state of emergency imposed 18 months ago in Borno and two other northeastern states in the country due to the Boko Haram attacks.

 

Most houses were destroyed by the Islamic radicals in Azaya Kura, about 25 miles from Maiduguri, the capital of Borno. The militants also seized livestock and food during the offensive, according to Nigerian newspaper Daily Trust. Many residents fled their homes in Mafa, the city closest to the attacked village, after Boko Haram seized control of the area two months ago.

Iran expresses readiness for dispatching millions of militia to Gaza | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

The commander of Iran’s Basij force, Mohamad Reza Naghdi said that millions of Iranian Basij members are ready to go to Gaza and Syria, the country’s Fars news agency reported Nov. 17.

 

Naghdi said that over 22 million people are Basij members, adding the force also includes 2,000 military battalions.

 

Earlier in September Naghdi said that Basij has commenced relief and donation efforts for the reconstruction of Gaza after the 50-day war with Israel.

 

Basij also opened a bank account to collect money for buying weapons for Palestinians last July, referring to remarks by Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

 

On July 23, Khamenei stated that the only solution for the region is the destruction of Israel, and that the armed confrontation must expand beyond Gaza.

The Islamic State (Isis) has recruited an army hundreds of thousands strong, far larger than previous estimates by the CIA, according to a senior Kurdish leader. He said the ability of Isis to attack on many widely separated fronts in Iraq and Syria at the same time shows that the number of militant fighters is at least 200,000, seven or eight times bigger than foreign in intelligence estimates of up to 31,500 men.

National Cathedral Hosts Islamic Prayers; Lone Protester Interrupts Service

National Cathedral Hosts Islamic Prayers; Lone Protester Interrupts Service | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

"Jesus Christ died on that cross over there!" a woman said loudly, immediately after announcements at the beginning of the service were made. "He is the reason why we are to worship only him. Jesus Christ is our lord and savior!"


Although this is not the first time the Cathedral has welcomed Muslims to join in on its interfaith services and events, it is the first time it has invited Muslims to lead their own prayers within its walls.

 

Not everyone supports the Cathedral's gesture. American Family Association Director of Issue Analysis Bryan Fischer said the Muslim prayer service violates the Ten Commandments.

 

This is not the first time the National Cathedral has invited controversy with its services. In June the Cathedral invited openly transgendered Episcopal priest Rev. Cameron Partridge to preach from its pulpit in honor of LGBT pride month. Openly gay Episcopal Bishop Rev. Gene Robinson presided over the Sunday service. The Cathedral also hosts gay marriage ceremonies.

Now, it appears, impeachment talk is reaching the supposed mainstream of the conservative commentariat. On Thursday night, Charles Krauthammer told Megyn Kelly on Fox News that Obama’s executive amnesty amounted to “an impeachable offense.” Multiple Fox News commentators and hosts have also mentioned impeachment, including Kelly, who correctly stated, “Some would suggest if he goes too far he should be impeached.” Chris Wallace has said the same: “You’re going to see calls for impeachment.” Sean Hannity averred, “Normally, when a president does something that would bring the country to a tipping point, the first thing people would say is impeachment.” Judge Andrew Napolitano has also raised impeachment.
