ISIS Beheads 3 Women In Syria, School Bombed


Meanwhile, the Observatory reported Wednesday that militants of the Islamic State group beheaded nine Kurdish fighters, including three women, captured in clashes near the Syria-Turkey border.

They were captured during the heavy fighting over the northern Syrian town of Kobani, also known as Ayn Arab, the Observatory said. The chief Kurdish group fighting in Syria, known as the YPG, advocates gender equality, and women fight alongside men.

Kurdish forces have been locked in fierce clashes with Islamic State militants in and around Kobani since the extremist group launched an assault in mid-September. The fighting over Kobani has created one of the single largest exoduses in Syria's civil war, with more than 160,000 people fleeing into Turkey, the U.N. humanitarian chief Valerie Amos said Tuesday.

Woman Finds Out She's Pregnant After Breast Cancer Diagnosis


At the time of her diagnosis Rivas and her husband were investigating adoption options. Rivas was afraid to try IVF or other hormonal treatments due to cancer risks associated with higher estrogen levels.

When Rivas asked to take a pregnancy test, she thought she was just delaying dealing with her cancer diagnosis.

“A voice told me ‘You’re really in denial,” about cancer, Rivas recalled thinking at the time.

When a nurse came back after the test, she told Rivas it was likely positive but it was so early to be sure. They would have to wait another 48 hours for doctors to be completely sure.

“I left that day not knowing if I was pregnant but knowing I have breast cancer,” said Rivas.

Two days later doctors repeated the test and confirmed she was pregnant. While Rivas and her husband Luis Rivas were excited about the pregnancy, they now had to consider their options.

Isis Threat to Crucify Lebanon's Christians

Isis Threat to Crucify Lebanon's Christians as Islamic State Prepare to Cross Syria Border


The Sunni jihadists have taken over Iraq's largest Christian town of Qaraqosh causing thousands of residents to flee towards Kurdistan region.

They also issued an ultimatum to Christians in the city of Mosul to convert to their radical form of Islam or be forced to either pay a tax, leave the city or be harmed for refusal to convert.

The city is now reportedly empty of Christians as hundreds of families fled following the ultimatum of death or a historic contract ‒ known as "dhimma"‒ where non-Muslims can receive protection if they pay a fee known as a "jizya".

Go Figure !!! After 2000 years...Only 12 Jews left in Egypt.

Only 12 Jews remain in Egypt, the remnant of a community of some 100,000 that lived there until the 1950s, the community’s leader said.

“We are dying, we are drowning, we are finished,” Jewish community head Magda Haroun told the BBC in an interview broadcast on Sept. 18.

Haroun said that her “first duty is to take care of the human beings,” the remaining Jews, “the old ladies which have no family, are alone.”

“And my second duty and most important one is these things that will never die,” she said, pointing to the religious and ritual objects.

Most of Egypt’s Jews left in the 1950s and 1960s when Egypt and Israel were at war and Jews were accused of being spies.


Fired Oklahoma City nursing home worker threatened beheading, police say


In a bizarre coincidence, a fired Oklahoma City nursing home employee was arrested Friday after a co-worker reported he threatened to cut her head off.

Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, 30, is being held in the Oklahoma County jail on a terrorism complaint. His bail is set at $1 million.

“We take these threats very seriously,” Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said.

The arrest came on the same day police in Moore revealed fired Vaughan Foods worker Alton Alexander Nolen beheaded a co-worker after he was fired Thursday. Nolen is a Muslim convert.

FBI probing past of recently fired Oklahoma man who beheaded woman


The idea that a man who's been trying to convert others to Islam ends up beheading someone is alarming enough, but perhaps even more given what has been happening in the Middle East.

The Islamist extremist group ISIS has made a name for its itself using such tactics, going so far as to record the beheadings of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff as well as British aid worker David Haines.

And they've threatened more to come, especially if the United States and its allies continue to launch airstrikes at the group in Iraq and Syria. This has spurred concerns that ISIS sympathizers may similarly lash out against innocents in the West.

Its been a long week...Anyone know any jokes ?

I could use a few.

`3,000 European jihadis` now in Syria, Iraq: EU

Brussels: The number of Europeans joining Islamist fighters in Syria and Iraq has jumped by a third to around 3,000 in a few months, the EU counter terrorism chief said Tuesday.

In an exclusive interview with AFP, Gilles de Kerchove said the flow of Europeans may have been boosted by the Islamic State militant group`s declaration in June of a caliphate straddling Syria and Iraq.

"My own assessment is that we`re about 3,000," he said when asked how many European fighters have flocked to the extremists` cause.

In June, he said there were 2,000 such fighters from Europe.

"The flow has not been dried up, and therefore possibly the proclamation of the caliphate has had some impact," de Kerchove said


Feds: Denver Teen Intended to Wage 'Sex Jihad'.

According to London-based the Middle-East newspaper, FBI opened a case, investigating about the alleged recruitment of young American girls by the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) to entertain the Islamist rebels sexually.

Omar Abu-Khalid the representative of Somali community in Minneapolis, told FBI officials that in the past three months, several Somali parents have informed the police that their daughter are missing and are believed to join ISIS to perform sexual Jihad.

Mr. Abu Khalid also disclosed that two twin teenagers from the Somali community from Saint Paul, Minnesota were disappeared after telling their mother that they wish to attend a marriage ceremony of a close friend.
The federal authorities say Shannon Conley, a 19-year-old woman, intended to wage sexual jihad was apprehended in Denver international airport last Monday. Conley confessed to her investigators that she met a young Arab man on internet and later she converted to Wahhabi faith (deviant Sunni Islam cult adopted by Saudi government).
