Germany: Today is Rosenmontag.

(Dusseldorf)  Carnival Monday (Rosenmontag) is held just before the beginning of Lent. Many people mark the occasion in some regions in Germany by holding street parades, parties and making fun of German stereotypes, politicians and other public figures. I spent 8 years in Dusseldorf and on Rosenmontag, we would travel down to the old part of the city (Altstadt) and enjoy the carnival atmosphere.  The Germans (especially in Duss) go to a lot of effort in which to mock popular political (in the news) people. This year saw Trump, Erdogan, ISIS and the UK made fun of.

As the floats travel through the Aldt Stad, people on them will throw sweets into the crowd. Which is why you see lots of children sporting plastic bags. Tell you what thou, getting hit a number of times in the head by boiled sweets is painful. Anyway here are a few pictures of the fun that was had in Düsseldorf:

Gaza: Israel hits Hamas after Rocket attack.

(Gaza City) it appears that the new hard-liner leader of Hamas  Yahya Sinwar fully subscribes to how the Koran dictates to the faithful on how to treat the jew.

Ignominy shall be their portion [the Jews'] where-so-ever they are found... They have incurred anger from their Lord, and wretchedness is laid upon them... because they disbelieve the revelations of Allah and slew the Prophets wrongfully... because they were rebellious and used to transgress. [Surah 111, v. 112]
Which may help explain , how since he took over the role of bigot in chief. Gaza has resumed lobbing rockets into its much larger neighbour in which to play the victim card for the rest of the worlds Islamic population. The latest act of Islamic kindness saw a missile launched from Gaza into Israel last night, In return the IDF struck 4 Hamas positions. I had to admit I uttered a laugh at the official Hamas news release over the incident:
The Hamas movement said in an official statement that they held Israel responsible for "this continuous dangerous escalation that targets the Palestinian resistance and the people of the Gaza Strip," adding that "the ongoing targeting of resistance sites and the escalating situation in Gaza would neither be allowed nor accepted."
Nothing like the tears of an Islamic terrorist in which to galvanise the worlds ethical latte drinkers..

Yemen: Suicide bomber kills 8 soldiers

(Yemen) The world is fed this diet that the current situation inside Yemen is simply one between Saudi Arabia on one side and Yemen on the other. The fact of the matter is it couldn't be further from the truth. In fact rather than 2 sides to the argument there are actually three, they are:
1) Yemeni Government , which is backed by a Saudi coalition.
2) Houthis rebels backed by Iran
3) Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP)

 All 3 are fighting each other, yet the fact of the matter is, only the first 2 actors are generally reported by the Media, with the former pained as the nasty guys. The fact remains AQAP is deemed to be the most dangerous al-Qaeda branch due to its emphasis on attacking the far enemy and its reputation for plotting attacks on overseas targets. Which explains why the US decided to strike an AL Q HQ the rural Yakla district of al-Bayda last month. Anyway whilst the liberal world waxes lyrical about the Saudi backed campaign against the Houthis ,  AQAP holds a third of Yemen

Green= Houthis/Red=Yemeni Government/ White=AQAP
And from their little caliphate they have no problem training the future AL-Q terrorists of tomorrow and recruits they receive a plenty and they in turn have no problem expressing their hatred of anybody who doesn't subscribe to their bigoted ways.

 Which is why yesterday , a driver of a VIED drove up to the main gate of an Yemeni army camp in the eastern city of Zinjibar, uttered the immortal words "Ali's snack bar" and murdered 8 people and wounded another 10. Thankfully he was foiled from entering the camp, but the men who stopped him paid with their lives.

Germany :Three injured in car attack, driver shot by Police

(Heidelberg) A man decided to drive a car into pedestrians today outside the Galeria Kaufhof in Heidelberg injuring three pedestrians before running off,

 He was chased down by the police around the corner and after a short stand-off (due to him being armed with a knife) The Police put an end to all this malarkey by shooting him.

He’s currently under guard at a local hospital with the local authorities screaming out this wasn't a terrorist attack and the man may have had mental health issues.

Anybody else find it strange how all these attacks in the west are carried out by people with mental health problems. 

US: preschool teacher fired over ‘Kill some Jews’ tweet

(Texas) A Texas preschool teacher is out of a job after numerious anti-Semitic online posts, including a tweet encouraging a friend to “kill some Jews,” came to light.

Nancy Salem
Nancy Salem was fired from The Children's Courtyard in Arlington after administrators were alerted to her anti-Semitic behaviour online. Here are a few of them from her now deleted twitter account:

On September 29, 2013, Salem tweeted: “‘@DictatorHitler: How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough’ @PrincessLulllu @thearabgirl HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHAHAHAHA.”

On June 28, 2013, Salem tweeted: “‘@DictatorHitler: Gassed a Jew, I’m sweating #Heil’ OMG.”

On September 18, 2013, Salem tweeted: “‘How was the copper wire invented? They threw a penny between two Jews.’ LOLACHAUST.”

On October 6, 2013, Salem tweeted: “‘@hanansalemxo: I hate Makki more than I hate Israeli Jews and math combined.’ ”

On October 28, 2013, Salem tweeted: “‘@DictatorHitler: If Moday [Monday] was a person he’d be Jewish’ @thearabgirl @wowreallywow ”
On July 12, 2014, Salem tweeted: “Some of the signs I made for the protest .” The tweet featured photos of signs that read: “Israel Is Real Terrorism.” “Dear USA, your 9/11 is our 24/7,” and another sign that accused Israel of practising apartheid.

On July 21, 2014, Salem tweeted: “I can’t wait for the day America stops being Israel’s little lap dog and wakes up. #BigDreams #Inshallah.”

On May 21, 2013, Salem tweeted: “@Nihad909 anything is better than Israel. But nothing is better than Palestine. #PaliPride.”

On July 30, 2014, Salem tweeted: “Hamas is actually defending our people unlike the Israeli army who will kill anyone.”

On July 21, 2014, Salem tweeted a picture of a female Israeli soldier — who was conducting a course for trauma medics —  applying fake blood to another soldier. The image was originally published in a August 2012 article on women and the IDF. Salem’s tweet insinuated that Israelis feigned injury to garner public sympathy

I wonder what CAIR will have to say on the matter?

Austria: Radical Mosque presses charges against duo who reported imam for inciting murder

(Winterthur) Austrian Police arrested ten people on Tuesday morning suspected of attacking two others at the An’Nur mosque because they tipped off a journalist about a controversial sermon given by the mosque’s imam.

In his sermon last November the imam called for the murder of Muslims who do not participate in communal prayer, and for others to denounce such people.  This in turn leadto the arrest of the imam and three others. Well fingers started pointing and they aimed in the direction of 2 of the congregation and so talking the law into their own fists, feet and things they can hold in their hands, the two were set upon by 10 of the faithful who also issued death threats to the families of the men concerned  In turn these thugs were all picked up by the Police on Tuesday.

Well not happy with how religious thugs at the An’Nur mosque have been getting a bad press, the association that runs the An’Nour has lodged a complaint with police against said two members of the congregation and wants to press charges against the pair for allegedly secretly filming the controversial sermon, which theoretically could result in a  prison sentence if it is found that the pair’s secret filming violated rights to privacy.

The journalist who broke the story about the imam's sermon said he had been threatened by members of the mosque. He called for police protection for the two informants and other witnesses who report alleged criminal behaviour at the mosque.

US: White American screams "Get out of my country" Shoots dead 1 Indian and wounds another (As well as an American)

(Olathe) 51 Year old Adam W. Purinton, took umbrage at 2 Indian citizens enjoying some down time at Austin's Bar and Grill at 7:15 p.m this past Wednesday. Screaming "get out of my country" he pulled out a pistol and emptied it into Srinivas Kuchibhotla, a 32-year-old Garmin employee, who was killed. Alok Madasani, 32, who also worked for Garmin, and Ian Grillot, a 24-year-old Grandview resident who tried to stop the shooter, were injured.
From left: Srinivas Kuchibhotla, who died; Alok Madasani, who was injured; and Ian Grillot
Realizing what he had just done, dickhead then decided to do a runner to Clinton, Missouri, where he related to a barkeep at a Applebees just what he had done. The police picked him up not long after. According to witnesses at the bar, Purinton had been shouting racial slurs before being asked to leave. Witnesses said he shouted “get out of my country” before shooting at Kuchibhotla and Madasani. He had previously left the bar and returned with a weapon.

Adam W. Purinton
Purinton, of Olathe has been charged with first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder. Whilst Kansas  does have the death penalty , nobody has been executed there since 1976. Personally I feel now would be a good time to start again.  

Niger: Military patrol attacked, 15 soldiers killed, 19 injured.

(NIAMEY)  Fifteen soldiers were killed and 19 wounded in an attack, Wednesday by "Islamic terrorists" near the village of Interzawane in the Tillaberi region in western Niger near the border with Mali. Colonel Toure Seydou Albdoula Aziz, the Niger army spokesman stated:
"A Niger army patrol was attacked by terrorist elements at 1500 GMT north of Tilwa We have 15 dead and 19 wounded in our ranks," 
 The attack follows an agreement earlier this month among the presidents of five countries- Mali, Niger, Mauritania, Burkina Faso and Chad- in Africa's vast Sahel region, including Niger, to set up a joint counterterrorism force in which to combat numerous extremist groups, including Boko Haram and others that have been linked to al-Qaida.


(ISW) The nice people at the Institute for the Study of War have brought out a map which shows the situation inside Syria as of Thursday the 24th, February 2017:

Opposition groups backed by Turkey in Operation Euphrates Shield seized full control over Al-Bab in Northern Aleppo Province as well as two neighbouring towns, ending more than three months of heavy clashes. The fall of Al-Bab will enable Turkish President Recep Erdogan to pursue his next stated strategic priorities in Northern Syria – including an offensive to expel the Syrian Kurdish YPG from Manbij in Eastern Aleppo Province. Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Isik warned that Turkey will “re-evaluate” military operations against the town if the U.S. does not ensure the imminent withdrawal of the Syrian Kurdish YPG from Manbij. Meanwhile, UN Special Envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura opened the Geneva IV Talks between regime and opposition delegations with the goal of reaching a political solution to the Syrian Civil War. The negotiations nonetheless appear primed to fail amidst deteriorating conditions on the ground - including an increasingly unstable nationwide ceasefire and a continued consolidation of power by Al-Qaeda in Syria. 

Iraq: ISIS using hobby Drones to deadly effect in Mosul.

(Iraq)  ISIS have taken to using new technology in which to support their rabid bigoted agenda to a new level. We saw that ,when they burst upon the scene with their use of the web in which to promote their so called pious religious caliphate  to those impressionable to the thought of living in a pure Islamic utopia. That resulted in thousands from the West leaving everything behind in which to relocate  to Syria/Iraq. The use of drones in which to film their military advances across Syria and Iraq and now that they are on the back foot, they have used those very same drones to drop military ordinance on their enemy. The only problem here is, the drones they use are what we would class as toys so are limited in how far they can fly and what they can carry. But every now and again  they get lucky.
