Taliban Truck Bomb Kills 80 in Kabul.

"O you who believe! Fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you & let them find in you hardness; & know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil)." So Allah the evil pagan moon god instructs his nihilistic fanatics, in verse 9:123 of his disgusting screed of incoherent garbage, the Koran.

So, the only reason a terrorist needs to attack the unbeliever is physical proximity, no other criterion is necessary. Thus, when those terrorists in Afghanistan who have still not migrated to Europe want some unbelievers to attack, then the diplomatic quarter of Kabul is an obvious target, as it has proved to be today, as reported by The Express Tribune:

Massive Kabul truck bomb kills 80, wounds hundreds

At least 80 people were killed and over 350 wounded Wednesday when a massive truck bomb ripped through Kabul's diplomatic quarter, shattering the morning rush hour and bringing carnage to the streets of the Afghan capital, a public health official said.

Bodies littered the scene and a towering plume of smoke rose from the area, which houses foreign embassies, after the blast blew out the windows in several missions and residences hundreds of metres away.

Witnesses described dozens of cars choking the roads as wounded survivors and panicked schoolgirls sought safety, with men and women struggling to get through security checkpoints to search for loved ones.

It was not immediately clear what the target was. But the attack underscores spiralling insecurity in Afghanistan, where a military beset by soaring casualties and desertions is struggling to beat back the insurgents. Over a third of the country is outside government control.

More than an hour after the explosion, ambulances were still taking the wounded to hospital as firefighters struggled to control blazes in several buildings. Health ministry spokesperson Waheed Majroh said at least 49 people had been killed and 320 wounded, with the figures confirmed by a second health official and the government media office.

Authorities warned the toll could yet rise. "They are still bringing bodies and wounded people to hospitals," senior health ministry spokesperson Ismael Kawoosi told AFP. The interior ministry was calling on Kabul residents to donate blood, saying hospitals were in "dire need".

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the attack came as the resurgent Taliban step up their annual "spring offensive".

The Islamic State group has also claimed responsibility for several recent bombings in the Afghan capital, including a powerful blast targeting an armoured NATO convoy that killed at least eight people and wounded 28 on May 3.

Najib Danish, an interior ministry spokesperson, said initial findings showed it had been a truck bomb.

The blast also inflicted minor injuries to the staffers of Pakistani embassy situated in Kabul and damaged the residences of country's diplomats posted in Afghanistan, Foreign Office said following the attack.

The office also condemned the deadly blast and said Pakistan a victim of terrorism understand the agony that Afghanistan must be going through.

An FO statement said that Pakistan firmly stands with Afghan people in time of grief.

Army chief condemns Kabul blast

Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa has condemned the blast in Kabul, Inter-Services Public Relations said on Wednesday.

According to the military's media wing, Gen Bajwa expressed grief on loss of precious lives and damage to various embassies' infrastructure including Pakistan. "We stand with Afghan brothers and its security forces in fight against terrorism and militancy."

Manpreet Vohra, India's envoy to Afghanistan, told the Times Now television channel the bomb went off around 100 metres from India's embassy, one of several in the area.

"We are all safe, all our staff, all our personnel are safe. However, the blast was very large and nearby buildings including our own building have considerable damage in terms of broken glass and shattered windows and blown doors etc," he said.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted: "We strongly condemn the terrorist blast in Kabul. Our thoughts are with the families of the deceased & prayers with the injured."

"By God's grace, Indian Embassy staff are safe in the massive #Kabul blast," India's foreign minister Sushma Swaraj tweeted. The Indian embassy is among those close to the area.

The explosion also shattered windows at the Japanese embassy. "Two Japanese embassy staffers were mildly injured, suffering cuts," a foreign ministry official in Tokyo told AFP. France also reported damage to its own embassy and the German one.

French embassy in Kabul damaged in car bomb attack: minister

The French embassy in Kabul was damaged in Wednesday's car bomb attack in the Afghanistan capital, said French minister Marielle de Sarnez, who added there were no signs at this stage of any French victims. "There has been some material damage in the French embassy, as well as in the Germany embassy," de Sarnez, who is France's European affairs minister, told Europe 1 radio on Wednesday.

A driver associated with the BBC was among those killed and four other journalists were wounded in the blast, the news organisation said in a statement.

Pentagon chief Jim Mattis has warned of "another tough year" for both foreign troops and local forces in Afghanistan.

At least three killed in Kabul suicide attack near Afghan Defence Ministry

Afghan troops are backed by US and NATO forces, and the Pentagon has reportedly asked the White House to send thousands more troops to the country to break the deadlock in the fight against the Taliban.

US troops in Afghanistan number about 8,400 today, and there are another 5,000 from NATO allies. They mainly serve in an advisory capacity — a far cry from the US presence of more than 100,000 six years ago.

The blast was the latest in a long line of attacks in Kabul. The province surrounding the capital had the highest number of casualties in the first three months of 2017 due to multiple attacks in the city, with civilians bearing the brunt of the violence.

Islamic State Use Human Shields in Philippines.

"So, when you clash with the unbelieving Infidels in battle, smite their necks until you overpower them, killing & wounding many of them. At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind them firmly, making captives. Thereafter, either generosity or ransom until the war lays down its burdens. Thus are you commanded by Allah to continue carrying out Jihad against the unbelieving infidels until they submit to Islam." So Muslims are told, in Allah's awful tome of trash, the Koran, in verse 47:4.

Taking hostages has always been a component of Islamic practice, ask John McCarthy & Terry Waite. Traditionally it was for the purposes ransom, as Allah so ineloquently says himself but now, in the age of high power ordnance, said hostages can be used as human shields, as they have been in Gaza, Mosul, Aleppo & today Marawi, as reported by Yahoo News:

89 gunmen killed in Philippine urban battle: military

Philippine troops have killed 89 Islamist militants during more than a week of urban battles but a final showdown is expected to be fierce as the gunmen protect their leaders and hold hostages, authorities said Wednesday.

Attack helicopters fired rockets on Wednesday morning into parts of Marawi, a Muslim city in the south of the mainly Catholic Philippines, that were still controlled by the militants fighting under the black flag of the Islamic State (IS) group.

President Rodrigo Duterte declared martial law across the entire southern region of Mindanao in response to the crisis, which he described as the start of a major campaign by IS to establish a foothold in the Philippines.

Eighty-nine militants had been killed in the fighting and the amount of territory in the city that the remaining gunmen controlled had been cut to just 10 percent, military spokesman Brigadier-General Restituto Padilla said Wednesday.

However Padilla warned of more intense battles ahead, with the military believing three of the militants' main leaders were likely still in the city.

"That 10 percent is most likely the area that is heavily guarded and defended by any armed men if they are protecting any individual of high value," Padilla said.

The militants are also holding an unknown number of civilians hostage, according to Padilla and other authorities.

Duterte
Padilla
They initially took a priest and up to 14 other people hostage at the start of the crisis.

A video of the priest appeared on social media on Tuesday, in which he repeated the militants' demands to withdraw and said his captors were holding 240 people hostage.

Padilla said the number of people cited in the video as being held hostage could not be verified.

He insisted the release of the footage showed the militants were becoming increasingly desperate and said security forces would not back down.

"They are trapped, they are contained, they are in areas that they will never come up alive unless they surrender," Padilla said.

- 'Terrible' ordeal -

Another major complicating factor was the safety of about 2,000 residents who the local government said remained trapped in the militant-controlled areas, with troops, police and aid workers trying to rescue them.

"It was a terrible situation. We did not have anything to eat," Jenita Abanilla, 47, a laundrywoman, told reporters at an evacuation centre in Marawi on Wednesday shortly after heavily armed police brought her to safety.

Abanilla said she, her eight-year-old son, her husband plus eight other neighbours and relatives had often hid kneeling with their faces on the floor of her house.

"We covered the mouths of our children. We were afraid the gunmen would come in and kill us," she said, adding they were also scared of being hit by military bombs.

Padilla said Wednesday the militants had murdered 19 civilians but insisted that the military's "precision airstrikes" had not killed any of the trapped residents.

Twenty-one security forces had also died, Padilla said, bringing the combined death toll to 129.

Hapilon
The clashes erupted when security forces raided a house to arrest Isnilon Hapilon, a veteran Filipino militant regarded as IS's leader in the Philippines and who is on the US government's list of most-wanted terrorists.

Authorities said they were taken by surprise when dozens of gunmen emerged to protect Hapilon and then went on a rampage through Marawi, the Philippines' main Islamic city with a population of 200,000.

Hapilon was being protected by members of the local Maute group, a small band of militants who has declared allegiance to IS, according to the government.

Malaysians, Singaporean, Indonesian and other fighters had been involved in the unrest, according to the military.

Hapilon and the two Maute leaders -- brothers after whose surname the group is named -- were still believed to be in Marawi, local military spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Jo-ar Herrera told reporters.

A Muslim separatist rebellion in the southern Philippines has killed more than 120,000 people since the 1970s.

The main Muslim rebel groups have signed accords with the government aimed at forging lasting peace, giving up their separatist ambitions in return for autonomy.

The Maute and other hardline groups have rejected the peace process.

Rape Victim Sentenced to Death in Pakistan.

"And as for those who are guilty of an indecency from among your women, call to witnesses against them four (witnesses) from among you; then if they bear witness confine them to the houses until death takes them away or Allah opens some way for them." So Allah tells his backward believers, in Koranic verse 4:15.

So, if a woman gets raped, she has to get four male witnesses to testify against her attacker – because rapists are famous for their attention seeking – otherwise, she's guilty of fornication or adultery & can be executed. Sound far fetched? Read this report from MailOnline yesterday (hat-tip to Paul Joseph Watson @PrisonPlanet):

Woman, 19, is sentenced to death by stoning for adultery after she was 'raped at gunpoint by her cousin' in Pakistan

  • Woman, 19, claims she was raped in her family home at gunpoint by her cousin
  • She reported crime to tribal court, but it ruled she had intentionally seduced him
  • Court, which included alleged rapist's father, then sentenced her to death 

A 19-year-old woman has been sentenced to death in Pakistan after she accused her cousin of raping her at gunpoint.

The woman said she was asleep at her family home in Rajanpur, in the country's central Punjab province, when the attack happened.

She reported the crime to the local panchayat, a tribal court that operates outside the official justice system in remote areas of the country, but was told she had intentionally seduced her attacker.

The panchayat, which included the alleged rapist's father, then found her guilty of adultery and declared her a Kari, or adulteress, the Express Tribune reports.

As a result the teen was sentenced to death by stoning or to be sold off, according to the Hindustan Times and Tribune.

The council decided no action needed to be taken against the alleged rapist.

The following day the woman and her father went to the police, who have now launched an official investigation.

An arrest warrant has now been issued for the members of the tribal council, and the woman taken to a refuge away from the village.

Women declared Kari are often executed by their own family in so-called honour killings to restore their reputation.

Another warrant has also been issued for the alleged rapist, local media reports.

Germans Fight Mega Mosque with Pig Parts.

"Surely the vilest of animals in Allah's sight are those who disbelieve, then they would not believe." So Allah the pathetic pagan rock idol tells his frothing followers, in verse 8:55 of his incoherent & transparent Koran.

Muslims hate us & once they reach sufficient numbers in your neighbourhood, this divinely inspired contempt will inform their behaviour towards the native population & life can be made very difficult. Ask the people of Rochdale, Rotherham & Oldham.

Therefore, having witnessed what Muslims have brought to other locations, using their mosques as bases of operations, it is natural to militate against the building of a new mosque in your area. This is what the citizens of Erfurt have been doing, amusingly employing the noble pig as a weapon, as reported by The Local today:

Planned Erfurt mosque targeted with dead pigs on wooden stakes

Police are investigating after someone placed body parts of dead pigs on wooden stakes at the construction site of a planned mosque in Erfurt.

Half of a pig's head as well as pig feet and entrails were among the body parts found on the nine 1.5-metre wooden stakes at the site of the planned mosque, according to police on Monday.

The pig may have been used because many Muslims do not eat pork.

A criminal police unit is now investigating who was responsible for the act.

"It should simply not be the case that minorities are attacked in this way in a civilized society," said Mohammad Suleman Malik, a spokesman from the Ahmadiyya Islamic community that is building the mosque, to news site Thüringen24.

Malik added that the community would not react with anger, but rather with patience, citing the Muslim prophet Muhammad as an example. He also said they were open to having a dialogue with their critics.

Malik
Höcke
There have already been protests against building the mosque, including by the far-right AfD party, whose state leader Björn Höcke has called the plans "part of a long-term landgrab project".

In March, opponents of the mosque placed giant wooden crosses at a site neighbouring the construction area as a form of protest.

Last year, another Ahmadiyya community in Leipzig was also targeted for its plans to build a mosque, with someone leaving a dead piglet and the words "Mommy Merkel" in red paint at the site of the planned building.

Malik said that it was not so much the use of the dead pigs that bothered him.

"It is an attack on the behaviour of a civil society and on peaceful coexistence."

Hate crimes in Germany are classified as politically motivated crimes, which overall reached a record high last year, according to the interior ministry. The explosion in hate crimes has coincided with hostile reactions to Germany taking in record numbers of refugees over the past two years, many of whom are Muslim.

More than 1,500 hate crimes based on religion were committed in 2016 - a 36 percent leap from 2015. The vast majority (73 percent) had right-wing motivations.

Bomb Plot Busted in Brandenburg, Teen from Syria Arrested.

"O you who believe! Fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you & let them find in you hardness; & know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil)." So Allah instructs his bloodthirsty believers, in Koranic verse 9:123.

You will please to note that the only criterion for fighting the unbeliever is geographic proximity, no other justification is required. This is why 'refugees' are always trying to kill us, sometimes successfully, as in Manchester last week, sometimes unsuccessfully as in Brandenburg today, as reported by BBC News (hat-tip to Tommy Robinson @TRobinsonNewEra):

Police in Germany 'foil asylum seeker suicide attack'

German police have arrested a teenage asylum seeker suspected of planning a suicide attack in Berlin.

The suspect, 17, was arrested in the Uckermark, a district in Brandenburg, the state's Interior Minister, Karl-Heinz Schröter, announced.

He entered Germany in 2015, police said. They have not confirmed reports that he is Syrian.

In December, a jihadist killed 12 people with a lorry at a Berlin Christmas market.

That attack by Anis Amri, a Tunisian, put security services under intense scrutiny because of the way in which the attacker, who was later shot dead by police in Italy, evaded their surveillance and crossed European borders undetected.

Schröter
Amri
Special forces arrested the teenager after police received a tip-off, Brandenburg police tweeted (in German). He had sent a message to his family saying farewell and that he was joining the "jihad", the police said.

The boy told his family he planned to carry out a suicide attack, Mr Schröter said.

His ministry said the suspect was Syrian but police tweeted that neither the "Syrian nationality" nor "concrete attack plans" could yet be confirmed, and that investigations continued.

The suspect had been living in a home for unaccompanied underage refugees in Uckermark since 2016 and had never before come to the attention of police.

He is currently being questioned and the home is being searched by the state criminal investigation office, Brandenburg police said.

Details of the plot cannot be released due to police operations, which are ongoing, the police added.

Some 280,000 asylum seekers arrived in Germany last year, a drop of more than 600,000 compared to 2015.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's decision to temporarily open the country's borders at the height of the European migrant crisis divided opinion and immigration is an important political issue ahead of the parliamentary election later this year.

Mrs Merkel recently moved to try and ramp up deportations of failed asylum seekers.

Tunisia had refused to take back Anis Amri after his asylum bid was rejected and pressure has increased on Mrs Merkel's government since the December attack.

Last Trace of Islamorealism Vanishes from UK Broadcasting as Katie Hopkins Sacked from LBC.

'The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it.' So said George Orwell, who did so much to warn us of the oncoming global tyranny.

This is why Islamorealists are so excoriated in our media & persecuted by our authorities, the powers that be are importing Islam into our society to reduce it to ruins, the better to rule over whoever is left alive as feudal overlords. As preparations are made, the lie must be drilled into us that terrorism has nothing to do with Islam.

This is why an excuse had to be found to get the notorious Islamorealist Katie Hopkins off the air. Such an excuse has now been found. In response to the horror of the Manchester attack, she made a clumsy call for a 'final solution' to terrorism on her Twitter account.

This has been deemed reminiscent of the Holocaust by such people as look for reasons to take offence & now the LBC radio station has promptly dropped her from its employ. This, after Muslims have demonstrated that they are planning a final solution for us. This report from the Independent on Friday:

Katie Hopkins to leave LBC 'immediately' in wake of Manchester attack 'final solution' comments
She was at the station for less than a year

Katie Hopkins is to leave LBC with immediate effect, the radio station has confirmed.

The announcement comes shortly after Hopkins said that a "final solution" was needed following the Manchester terror attack that killed 22.

The since-deleted post appeared to call for genocide, her use of "final solution" presumably referring to the Nazi genocide of millions of Jews in the Second World War.

"22 dead - number rising," she wrote on 23 May. "Schofield. Don't you even dare. Do not be a part of the problem. We need a final solution #Machester."

LBC told The Independent it would not be "commenting further [than the tweet below]".

Complaints were made to the Metropolitan Police about Hopkins' tweet, which she later said she stood by, but claimed the use of "final" was a typo, changing it to "true" in a new tweet.

Hopkins has consistently been referring to "Islamic terror" and "Islamic extremists" on Twitter, phrasing with implications to an entire religion that even President Trump has been conscious to try and avoid.

Though he used "Islamic" while campaigning, during his recent trip to the Middle East his speeches were on the threat of "Islamist terror" (though he misspoke in Saudi Arabia on Sunday and accidentally said "Islamic").

A spokesman for the Met said on Tuesday: "We can confirm that a complaint has been received by the Metropolitan Police Service on Tuesday, 23 May in relation to a tweet published on the same day.

"As is routine, the allegation will be reviewed and assessed by specialist officers."

Last year, MailOnline, whom Hopkins still works for, was forced to pay £150,000 to a Muslim family whom she falsely accused of extremist links.

Hopkins
Trump
Donald Trump thanked Hopkins in December 2015 for her "powerful writing on the UK's Muslim problems", describing her as a "respected columnist".

Hopkins achieved fame in 2006 on BBC show The Apprentice, but it was her outspoken and often controversial opinions that furthered her career.

In 2015, she hosted a talk show on TLC called If Katie Hopkins Ruled the World which was cancelled after one season due to poor ratings. Her subsequent LBC show aired on Sunday mornings between 10am and 12pm.

Her "final solution" tweet was not the first time she has referenced the Holocaust, previously saying of the House of Lords: "Frankly, I don’t really mind if we seal up the room and gas the lot of them."

Hopkins is not a member of a political party, although, according to the Spectator, she has applied to join Ukip several times but has always been denied.

MailOnline and a representative for Hopkins declined to comment.

Manchester Bombing Victim's Family Calls out Government Treason.

As we survey the situation in which we find ourselves, with our daughters at constant risk of either gang rape or dismemberment, exclusively at the hands of a population artificially imported into our ancestral homeland by successive dishonest & intransigent governments, contemptuous of the manifest will of the native people, we must ask ourselves: "Why are we here?"

What was mass immigration for in the first place? Regardless of where the immigrants come from, when it started in 1947, the country had a housing crisis, courtesy of the Luftwaffe, & the U-boat war was fresh in the memory, demonstrating that the island was hard put to feed the population already residing thereon.

What, then, was the purpose of these multitudes swarming to our cramped little slice of territory? It wasn't to help the economy, as governments claim, immigrants in general account for a greater proportion of benefits claimants.

To create a multicultural society? Who needs it? When was this ever put to a vote & what was wrong with the English? The sad fact is that when a government programme fails to achieve the goals claimed, but the government carries on with it, the programme is achieving an unclaimed goal.

The goal of mass immigration is to sow unrest, animosity & violence in previously peaceful, law abiding & free societies, for the purposes of providing an excuse for that government to impose martial law. This is why the first influx of immigrants where descendants of slaves from the Caribbean.

It is why the greatest & most strenuously pursued newcomers have been Muslims, who now outnumber the Welsh on this island. This is why poor Lesley Callander, whose daughter was murdered by Islamic scum in Manchester last week, is wasting her time pleading with the government to open its eyes. The government knows exactly what it's doing in killing us, a fact not explored in this report from The Telegraph on Sunday (hat-tip to Blazing Cat Fur):

Manchester attack victim's family urges Government to 'open its eyes'

Manchester bombing victim Georgina Callander's family has hit out at the Government over her death, saying it must "open its eyes" or more parents will lose children to terror.

The 18-year-old was killed in the blast shortly after her favourite artist Ariana Grande left the stage at the Manchester Arena on Monday.

In a statement released through Greater Manchester Police, her family said the teenager's life had been cut short by "evil, evil men prepared to ruin lives and destroy families".

It added: "I wish I could say that Georgina is one of the last to die in this way but unless our Government opens its eyes we know we are only another in a long line of parents on a list that continues to grow."

The teenager, from Chorley, was in her second year of studying health and social care at Runshaw College in Leyland, Lancashire, and had previously been a pupil at Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy.

She had recently passed her driving test, was "doing great" in her exams and had been accepted into Edge Hill University.

The family's statement said: "On the 22 May 2017 our lives changed forever as our amazing daughter Georgina Bethany Callander was senselessly taken away.

"Her life was taken away after 18 short years by evil, evil men prepared to ruin lives and destroy families, for what?

"Georgina was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside, with a smile that was never ending.

"She always had big hugs for everyone and her life was blooming like the flowers she loved."

The family paid tribute to the "wonderful police and rescue services" and thanked the public for their support.

They said the "hugs, love and kind words" from people in their local community had had "a profound effect" on them.

Georgina Callander
Lesley Callander
Lesley Callander found her daughter on a stretcher as paramedics fought to save her life in the aftermath of the explosion.

She described her desperate efforts to bring comfort to the teenager's final moments to ITV news on Saturday.

"I was just screaming and shouting at her. I was rubbing her hands, I was rubbing her tummy, I was rubbing her face," she said.

"I don't know what was running through her mind.

"It was just a flicker of hope that she'd move her hand or move her leg or try and open her eyes a little, just to acknowledge that I was there, just to let me know that she was very, very poorly but she knew that I was there."

The night's event was supposed to have been a memorable one for the young music fan.

She had previously met Grande and posted a picture of the pair together on social media.

As the date of the concert came closer, excitement reached fever pitch, her mother said.

"She kept texting me telling me her tummy was turning over.

"She was so, so excited."

Speaking through tears, her father Simon said he felt guilty for not being with his daughter that evening.

"I should have been there to hold her hand, when she was lying there," he said.

Tommy Robinson Laments Absence of Trump-Style Travel Ban as UK Government Treason Becomes Apparent.

  1. O you who believe! When you go to war in Allah's way, make investigation, & do not say to any one who offers you peace: "You are not a believer. Do you seek goods of this world's life!" But with Allah there are abundant gains; you too were such before, then Allah conferred a benefit on you; therefore make investigation; surely Allah is aware of what you do.
  2. Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) & receive no hurt, & those who strive & fight in the cause of Allah with their goods & their lives. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive & fight with their goods & persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive & fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward:

So Allah instructs his rabid & backward followers, effectively telling them to infiltrate other people's countries in order to violently take over, sura four of his god awful Koran. I know what you're thinking: "If only our politicians knew this before letting any of these backward savages into the country!"

Well, of course they knew, the entire multicultural project is to destabilise Western society until the government has an excuse to put troops on the streets, which Theresa May's government has now down. This is merely touched upon in this report from i24NEWS today:

UK should've implemented Trump's travel ban, former EDL leader tells i24NEWS
Former EDL leader Tommy Robinson accuses the British government of abandoning its citizens

Had the UK long ago implemented a travel ban on Muslim-majority countries similar to the one proposed by US President Donald Trump, the children who lost their lives on Monday in the Manchester Arena bombing would still be alive, former English Defense League leader told i24NEWS Thursday.

Salman Abedi, a British-born university dropout with Libyan jihadi links, was named by British authorities the day after he detonated a bomb packed with nuts and screws at a concert by US pop star Ariana Grande, killing 22 people and maiming dozens more.

"They are killing our children while our political leaders are laying candles," a visibly emotional Tommy Robinson charged, accusing the British government of abandoning its citizens by failing to tackle Islamic extremism head on.

"This man was on a terror watch list, identified as a threat to our country," Robinson, the UK bureau chief of the right-wing TheRebel.media website, continued. "3000 of these men are being watched 24 hours a day seven days a week while we're waiting for them to kills us.

"Earlier on Thursday Libyan authorities detained the suicide bomber's father as well as his brother and police in Britain also carried out new arrests and raids.

"These are the enemy, they're foreign combatants of war and they're walking our streets and cuing up next to me in the bank," Robinson further added.

"I'm watching my town implode," he said of Luton, "I watched it decay by core fundamental Islam."

Abedi was known to British intelligence services, interior minister Amber Rudd said this week, without giving further details.

The English Defense League, a homegrown British group that protested against Islamic extremism, held a number of protests throughout 2013, which often ended in clashes with anti-fascist demonstrators.

Robinson quit in October that year, saying he could no longer keep "extremist elements" in the group at bay. He has repeatedly denied allegations of anti-Semitism and visited Israel last year.In 2016 he launched the UK branch of the far-right Pegida movement.

Trump's controversial travel ban was dealt a fresh blow on Thursday when a US federal appeals court upheld a lower court's decision to block the measure, which targeted travelers from six Muslim majority countries.

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals said it "remained unconvinced" that the part of the measure naming the specific countries -- Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen -- had "more to do with national security than it does with effectuating the president's promised Muslim ban."

Rapejihad in Stratford, Serial Rapist Gaoled for Nine Years.

  1. Narrated Anas: Amongst the captives was Safiya. First she was given to Dihya Al-Kalbi & then to the Prophet.
  2. Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: that while he was sitting with Allah's Apostle he said, "O Allah's Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, & we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interruptus?" The Prophet said, "Do you really do that? It is better for you not to do it. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will surely come into existence.

So says the most trusted compilation of ahadith in Islamic scripture, Sahih Bukhari, volume three, book 34. It cannot have escaped the notice of those of us in our society who permit themselves to observe the heinous behaviour & attitudes of Muslim men towards Western women, that they are considerably more prone to inflicting their sexual urges upon Western women regardless of consent.

Rape & sexual assault, in other words, are typical behaviours exhibited by our newly arrived cultural enrichers. We see from the above drivel that passes for scripture that the progenitor of the death cult of Islam was, himself, a habitual rapist who batted not so much as an eyelid at the news that his followers were raping female captives.

Because this animal is held in the Muslim mind as an absolute paragon of virtue, we inevitably will see hoards of them imitating his repulsive behaviour. This is why Muslims account for a far greater number of convicted sex criminals in Western countries than mere numbers would suggest.

Whether in gangs or under their own recognisance, priapic Muslim men have now become a plague upon the female half of our society, so entitled are they to help themselves to the bodies of nature English women. The latest specimen of this creature to come to our attention is one Mohammed Farah, who is clearly not as nimble as his namesake, & who features in this report from the Barking & Dagenham Post today (hat-tip to Paul Golding‏ @GoldingBF):

One-legged Barking rapist jailed for raping girl, 15, in Stratford
A one-legged 38-year-old man who raped a 15-year-old girl and threatened to kill her has been jailed for nine years.

A one-legged 38-year-old man who raped a 15-year-old girl and threatened to kill her has been jailed for nine years.

Mohammed Farah of Hurstbourne Gardens, Barking, was also given a 10-year Sexual Offences Prevention Order after being sentenced at Southwark Crown Court on Friday, May 26, after he lured the teenager to Torrens Square in Stratford on Sunday, October 2, 2016.

After drinking beer with the girl, he touched her and she told him to stop.

Farah
Farah stopped and told her not to run away as he'd lost one leg in a motorbike accident.

After convincing her to stay, he raped her and threatened to kill her if she told anyone.

But on Monday, October 17, last year police attended an address in Waltham Forest where the girl reported the rape, describing her attacker as "Mo Farah" and telling them he only had one leg.

After being arrested at his home in Barking, Farah denied raping the girl and said he'd never even met her.

But CCTV cameras captured him walking with his victim to Torrens Square.

After being charged with rape of a female under 16 years of age, he was found guilty at Southwark Crown Court on Tuesday, April 4.

Det Const Sarah Towe of the Met's Sexual Offences Exploitation and Child Abuse Command (SOECA) said Farah was a deceitful, dangerous rapist who also raped a 17-year-old in May 2010.

"Farah is a dangerous individual who preyed on an extremely vulnerable girl and used his disability to gain her trust," she said. "Believing she was safe in his company, the girl went with Farah to a secluded area where he then raped her.

Southwark Crown Court, where Farah was sentenced to nine years.

"Farah denied all involvement in this case until CCTV was produced which disproved his original defence. Even faced with this evidence, he continued maintain his innocence, but a jury was able to come to a unanimous verdict. This investigation was a real team effort by the SOECA unit and I am pleased that a dangerous rapist is now behind bars."

Farah was sentenced to six years in jail in September 2011 after raping a girl in Barking Park after he'd been drinking with friends.

Islamic State Massacres Christians in Philippines.

"Fight & kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait & ambush them using every stratagem of war." So Allah tells his murderous believers, in the most important verse in his entire repulsive Koran, the 'Verse of the Sword', number 9:5.

We should not be surprised then that, across the world, this is precisely what Muslims do whenever & wherever they feel able. As our attention was taken up with the slaughter of the innocents in Manchester, the Philippines has also been suffering from Islamic devotion, as reported by MailOnline yesterday (hat-tip to The Religion Of Peace):

Christians ‘are tied together and shot dead by ISIS militants’ as US-trained special forces battle to retake besieged Philippines city from rampaging jihadis

  • ISIS-linked militants forced civilians off their truck at checkpoint in Marawi City
  • They shot them after the group were identified as Christian, local media claimed
  • Fighting between Islamists and soldiers erupted in the city of Marawi on Tuesday
  • It was sparked by a raid on the house of Isnilon Hapilon, the Filipino head of ISIS
  • President Rodrigo Duterte declared martial law on the bottom half of the island

ISIS-linked militants reportedly captured nine Christians, tied their hands together and shot them dead in a city in the Philippines.

The Maute group forced the civilians off their truck at a roadside checkpoint in Marawi City on Wednesday and murdered them after they were identified as Christian, local media reported.

Harrowing images show the group lying dead face-down in the grass, amid reports that villagers are afraid to move the bodies because terrorists are still in the area.

Duterte
One policeman was similarly caught at a checkpoint set up by the militants and beheaded on Wednesday, President Rodrigo Duterte said.

It comes as 100 US-trained special forces aboard helicopters and armoured tanks battled to retake the besieged southern city from rampaging jihadis.

Soldiers were seen crouched behind armoured vehicles and walls around lunchtime on Thursday, firing volleys of gunshots towards elevated positions occupied by Maute rebels. Smoke could also be seen on the horizon.

Five soldiers and one policemen died in the clashes, while 13 gunmen were killed, according to the military.

'We're confronting maybe 30 to 40 remaining from the local terrorist group,' said Jo-Ar Herrera, a spokesman for the military's First Infantry Regiment.

'The military is conducting precise, surgical operations to flush them out ... The situation is very fluid and movements are dynamic because we wanted to out-step and out-manoeuvre them,' he said.

An initial rampage by the gunmen, who have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group, through the mainly Muslim city of Marawi on Tuesday prompted President Duterte to impose martial law across the southern third of the Philippines.

Authorities said ending the crisis was proving extremely hard because the militants were holed up in residential buildings, had planted improvised bombs in the streets and had taken Catholic hostages.

'People are afraid. They do not want to open establishments. Offices are closed. We do not want people to be used as human shields,' Marawi mayor Majul Usman Gandamra said.

Two military helicopters flew above Marawi and armoured tanks churned through its streets as automatic rifle firing could be heard on Thursday, according to an AFP photographer in the city. Marawi has about 200,000 residents but many of them have fled because of the fighting.

It is located in Lanao del Sur province, a stronghold of the Maute, a fierce, but little-known group that has been a tricky opponent for the military.

There are only between 50 and 100 gunmen, according to various military officials. The militants are also holding between 12 and 15 Catholic hostages abducted from a church, according to the local bishop, Edwin Dela Pena.

Its activities are a source of concern for Mindanao native Duterte, who is familiar with separatist unrest but alarmed by the prospect of Islamic State's radical ideology spreading in the Philippines.

Hundreds of civilians, including children, were sheltering in a military camp in Marawi City on Thursday. The Maute had taken more than a dozen Christians hostage and set free 107 prisoners from two jails since Tuesday.

Bishops and cardinals had pleaded with the Maute rebels, who they said were using Christians and a priest as human shields. The status of the captives was unknown.

The fighting erupted on Tuesday after security forces raided a house where they believed Isnilon Hapilon, a leader of the infamous Abu Sayyaf kidnap-for-ransom gang and Philippine head of IS, was hiding.

The United States regards Hapilon as one of the world's most dangerous terrorists, offering a bounty of $5 million for his capture. However the raid went spectacularly wrong as dozens of gunmen emerged to repel the security forces, then went on a rampage across the city while flying black IS flags.

They also set fire to many buildings, including a church and a university.

A police chief has been beheaded and 21 people killed when more than 100 ISIS-linked militants stormed a city in the Philippines. Members of the Maute Islamist group overran Marawi on Mindanao island leading to hours of pitched gun battles in the streets.

'The chief of police in Malabang on his way home, going back he was stopped by a checkpoint manned by terrorists and I think they decapitated them right then and there,' Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said.

Terrorists also attacked the Cathedral of Our Lady Help and abducted church staff including Father Chito Suganob and worshipers.

'They have threatened to kill the hostages if the government forces unleashed against them are not recalled,' Filipino Archbishop Socrates Villegas said in a statement. National military spokesman Colonel Edgard Arevalo said 13 government soldiers were killed along with 13 militants.

President Duterte, who declared martial law in parts of Mindanao after militants clashed with soldiers in Marawi yesterday, said he may extend it to other parts of the country if extremists seek sanctuary elsewhere.

'We are in state of emergency,' he told reporters in Manila after a state visit to Moscow, adding he would deal with militants 'harshly'.

Chilling photos on social media purported to show Maute gunmen planting an ISIS-style black and white flag on top of a building in the middle of the city.

'At the time of his capture, Father Chito was in the performance of his ministry as a priest,' Archbishop Villegas said.

'He was not a combatant. He was not bearing arms. He was a threat to none. His capture and that of his companions violates every norm of civilised conflict.'

But Marawi Mayor Majul Usman Gandamra has refused to confirm reports the terror group took hostages and insisted that the local government has the situation under control.

In a telephone interview with national broadcaster ANC, Gandamra said he was working with the military to bring peace and order to the city.

Police and military spokesmen were not immediately available to comment on Villegas's report of the hostage taking.

The fighting in Marawi erupted yesterday when security forces raided a house they believed Isnilon Hapilon, leader of the infamous Abu Sayyaf kidnap gang and Philippine head of ISIS, was hiding.

The United States regards Hapilon as one of the world's most dangerous terrorists, offering a bounty of $6 million for his capture.

More than 100 gunmen responded to the raid by burning buildings and conducting other diversionary tactics, according to Defence Secretary Delfin Lorenzana.

Security analysts say Hapilon has been trying to unite Filipino militant groups that have professed allegiance to IS.

These include the Maute group, named after two brothers who lead it and which is based near Marawi.

Duterte had repeatedly said the growing influence of Islamic State was one of the nation's top security concerns, and martial law was necessary to stop it.

However Islamist militancy is not new to the southern Philippines, where a decades-long Muslim separatist insurgency claimed more than 120,000 lives.

Muslim rebels orchestrated a siege in the southern city of Zamboanga in 2013 that left more than 200 people dead.

But the government of then-president Benigno Aquino did not declare martial law.

Aquino also said he had considered imposing martial law just before standing down last year in Sulu, island strongholds of the Abu Sayyaf in the far south of Mindanao.

But Aquino said he decided against it partly because military rule could spark resentment among local people.

Was Manchester Arena Picked for Jihad in Furtherance of White Genocide?

"Though God promised that one of two columns (would fall to you), you desired the one that was not armed. But God wished to confirm the truth by His words, & wipe the unbelievers out to the last." So Allah the pitiful pagan rock idol tells his murderous fanatics, in verse 8:7 of the most egregious & egregiously written compendium of codswallop ever expectorated onto paper, the Koran. "Wipe the unbelievers out to the last." Another translation reads "Cut then off at the root" but you get the general idea of population annihilation.

And, indeed, that is what we see over the entire course of Islam's miserable existence, from the extirpation of Jewish tribes from the Arabian Peninsular during Mohammed's life & shortly after, through the Armenian & Assyrian Genocides a century ago to the Yezidi genocide today in Iraq & its Christian counterpart in Iraq, Syria & Nigeria.

Now it is the turn of native white Europeans, with the added bonus of their own governments' help in their extermination. Were one to take a long-term view of the disappearance of a people, one would deplete the reproductive potential of the female half, ensuring fewer people from the next generation available to resist.

This is partly what the mass rape across England of English schoolgirls by lecherous Pakistanis is about, aside from the obvious incentive of getting one's jollies. It could also be a factor in Salman Abedi's selection of a pop concert attended by teenage girls as a target for his suicide bomb. Look at the more noticeable demographic among the victims in this piece from MSN yesterday & decide for yourself:

Who are the victims of the Manchester terror attack?

Some of the victims among the 22 who were killed in the attack on the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester have been named.

Among them are parents who were coming to greet their children after the concert and take them safely home, as well as excited youngsters attending their first ever concert.
