Terror in Michigan: allahu akbar shouts Muslim terrorist as he stabs policeman at airport

A Muslim terrorist shouting “allahu akbar” repeatedly stabbed a police officer in the neck before being tackled to the ground and neutralized at Bishop International Airport in Flint, Michigan, at approximately 9:45 Wednesday morning.

The Canadian Muslim terrorist has been identified as Amor Ftouhi, who is approximately 50 years old.

The Muslim terrorist stabbed a police officer in the neck with a 12-inch knife with an 8-inch serrated edge while yelling ‘allahu akbar’.

Lt. Jeff Neville has been identified as the police officer who was stabbed at Bishop Airport in Flint.

He was rushed to the hospital after the terror attack in critical condition, but his condition improved after undergoing surgery. He is expected to make a full recovery.

The FBI special agent in charge said that the terrorist said ‘you have killed people in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan and we are all going to die’ and that it was clear he had a ‘hatred for the U.S.’

However, authorities said there’s no indication that the Muslim terrorist was connected to any international terror organization, or that he was part of any terror plot.

Officials also gave an update on Neville’s condition, saying he is now ‘resting comfortably’ in satisfactory condition at the hospital.

Officials: Trump disclosure endangered spy placed by Israel inside ISIS

President Donald Trump’s alleged intelligence disclosure to Russia has endangered the life of a spy who was placed inside ISIS by Israel, current and former US officials are reported to have affirmed on Wednesday according to ABC News.

The spy in question, whose life now hangs on the line after Trump reportedly revealed classified information in a meeting with Russian officials last week, was tracking an ISIS plot to bring down a passenger jet on its way to the US with a bomb hidden in a laptop that US officials think could get through airport screening machines unnoticed, according to ABC.

It appears that the information the spy had gathered was sufficient enough in helping US officials consider favorably the much-discussed possible ban on laptops on all flights from Europe to the US.

The New York Times claimed earlier on Tuesday that Israel was the source of the intelligence that Trump shared with Russian officials last week.

Israeli officials refused to comment on that report, and Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S., Ron Dermer, told the newspaper that the two nations would continue to cooperate closely in the field of counter-terrorism.

Later, two Israeli intelligence officials confirmed to the American news website BuzzFeed that Israel had shared specific intelligence with the United States regarding ISIS plots to smuggle explosive laptops onto planes.

“As president, I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety,” he posted on Twitter. “Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.”

Trump’s acknowledgment that he gave sensitive information during a White House meeting last week undercut intense efforts by senior aides to play down the incident on Monday evening after news reports emerged of Trump’s conversations about a planned ISIS operation.

All 100 US senators warns UN to stop ‘targeting Israel’

All 100 US senators signed a letter sent to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres Thursday urging him to act against discrimination in against Israel in the United Nations.

The letter, which was obtained by the Washington Post, contained a warning that the UN had better change its habitual discrimination against Israel, reminding Guterres that while the USA remains the main financial contributor to the organization, it is not afraid to act against it.

The letter went on to say that the US expected to see a change in the world forum and its institutions vis-a-vis its treatment of Israel.

“Through words and actions, we urge you to ensure that Israel is treated neither better nor worse than any other UN member in good standing,” the letter said.

The letter reaffirmed the US’s commitment to international leadership and to advancing respect for human rights but unequivocally condemned as what it described as the “continued targeting of Israel by the UN Human Rights Council and other UN entities.”

The senators listed a number of specific agencies in the UN which they said had demonstrated clear bias against Israel.

Pointing to the The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), it the letter acknowledged that it did carried out important work in the field of Holocaust education, but nevertheless highlighted measures that “target Israel and deny the Jewish and Christian connection to Jerusalem,” adding that such actions only serve to undermine the institution’s credibility.

(UNESCO) is set to vote on Tuesday, Israel’s Independence Day, on a resolution that comes out against Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem.

Turning to the United Nations Reliefs and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), the senators told Guterres that body would have to pursue reforms, accusing it of downplaying its “role in perpetuating troubling anti-Israel bias and activities.”

Furthermore, the signatories also delineated the “troubling” ways in which the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) “devotes time to unwarranted attacks against Israel.”

Cataloguing some of the most flagrant human rights violators in the world today, to which it said the UNHRC should be dedicating its attention, the senators once again cited the “imbalanced focus on Israel.”

The letter constitutes another step toward repairing the US’s unflagging support for Israel since President Trump took office in January, and appointed Nikki Haley as his Envoy to the UN.

Israel-US relations were frayed under the Obama administration when the US abstained from a contentious UN Security Council resolution calling for an end to Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria while simultaneously declaring them illegal.

Since taking on her new role however, Haley has managed to earn the trust of many Israel supporters and build a reputation as one of Israel’s staunchest advocates on the international stage through a series of public speeches and declarations admonishing the UN for its bias treatment against the country.

US to expel Arab terrorist who lied about her decades-old record of bombings in Israel

A Chicago-based Muslim Arab convicted terrorist with a decades-old record of bombings in Israel pleaded guilty Tuesday to concealing those convictions when she applied for US citizenship.

Rasmea Odeh, 69, will be deported to Jordan or another country in the months ahead.

Supporters traveled to Detroit from Chicago to pack the courtroom, and many were in tears later on the courthouse steps.

Odeh was convicted at trial in 2014 and sentenced to 18 months in prison, but the verdict was overturned. A second trial was planned in Detroit, the city where she went through the citizenship process in 2004, before she decided to accept a plea deal.

But even with the plea agreement, Odeh found it impossible to say the word “guilty” when repeatedly asked by US District Judge Gershwin Drain. He gave up and accepted her reply that she had admitted her crime in the court document.

“I signed this,” Odeh said.

She won’t spend any time in prison and will wait for US immigration officials to tell her when she must leave the country. The deportation won’t happen until after she appears in court in August.

“The United States will never be a safe haven for individuals seeking to distance themselves from their pasts,” said Steve Francis, special agent in charge of Homeland Security investigations in Detroit.

In 1970, Odeh was convicted of two bombings in Israel, including one that killed two young men at a supermarket in Jerusalem. She was sentenced to life in prison but was released in 1979 as part of a prisoner swap with the terror group Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

With family in Michigan, she applied for a US visa in 1994, but didn’t disclose her criminal record. She also didn’t disclose it when she applied for citizenship in 2004. Her record would have disqualified her from entering the US.

In the plea agreement with prosecutors, Odeh said she made the false statements “intentionally and not as a result of any mistake, post-traumatic stress disorder or any other psychological issue or condition or for any innocent reason.”

Before the guilty plea, a Detroit-area man held a sign outside to honor Leon Kanner and Eddie Joffe, the victims of the 1969 supermarket bombing.

“I’m out here for the families,” Dan Cutler, 65, said.

Iranian ship speeding toward US destroyer

An Iranian ship came within 1,000 yards of a Navy destroyer in the Persian Gulf on Monday, making it the second time this year that Iran has tested the waters with the U.S.

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard “fast attack craft” approached the guided missile destroyer USS Mahan with its weapons manned, according to a report published Tuesday evening.

Mahan turned on the danger signal, fired flares, manned its weapons and changed course to avoid colliding with the Iranian ship.

No warning shots were fired by either party.

About four months ago, an American destroyer was involved in a similar incident in the Strait of Hormuz and fired three warning shots after Iranian ships did not adhere to the warnings and continued to approach them.

“Such high-speed approaches and manning of the firing positions, despite warnings from the destroyer, are clearly provocative behavior,” one of the officials said of the Iranians. The Iranian ship did not fire warning shots.

According to the US military, Iranian ships were involved in 35 incidents of “unprofessional” behavior last year —a 50 percent leap from the previous year.

Terror attack in Fresno: 3 people murdered by Muslim terrorist who yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’

Three people were murdered after a Muslim terrorist went on a shooting spree in downtown Fresno, California on Tuesday before he was tackled and taken into custody, police said.

Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said officers have taken  Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, into custody in connection to the shootings. Dyer said Muhammad went by the nickname “Black Jesus” and shouted “Allahu Akbar” as police tackled him to the ground.

Dyer said at a news conference Muhammad has made posts against white people and the government on his Facebook page, and that all the people he shot were white men.

The shooting spree began around 10:45 a.m. local time, when one person was shot in a PG&E utility truck, a second person was shot on Fulton Street and a third person was shot in the parking lot of Catholic Charities.

All three shooting locations were close to each other. Around 16 shots were fired during the shooting spree, police said.

dfs

The terrorist was already wanted in connection to the killing of an unarmed security guard at a Motel 6 last week, police said.

“Our thoughts are with all involved in the incident that occurred in Fresno today,” PG&E said in a statement. “Public and employee safety is always our top priority. We are still gathering information on what happened, and will work to support first responders and law enforcement in their efforts.”

Dyer said Fresno police have called the FBI to assist in the investigation. The terrorist made other statements to police, but Dyer did not disclose what they were.

Cleveland police hunting gunman who killed a man LIVE on Facebook, claims to have killed 14 more

Cleveland police confirmed that they are hunting a man who live streamed as he killed someone, and has claimed to have killed more.

Steve Stephens is said to be on the loose in the Ohio city after he allegedly recorded the shocking act on social media at around 3pm Eastern Time on Easter Sunday.

The horrifying video, which police say is real, shows him driving up to an elderly man in the street and opening fire.

He claims to have killed 15 people on Sunday, but only one death has been confirmed.

Stephens, who works a mental health care manager, also wrote that he ‘messed up’ in postings on social media, and blamed the shooting on a woman, believed to be his ex-partner.

He wrote in a Facebook post that the woman is Joy Lane, and that he would only stop if she or his mother called him. Lane is said to be an Air Force veteran, and he said that the two dated for three years, and he wishes he’d never met her.

Cleveland Police have confirmed that the video posted to Facebook Live showing an elderly man being shot is legitimate.

He is 6ft and is said to weight 240lbs. He is bald with a full beard. He is wearing a dark blue, and gray or black striped polo shirt.

Police say he is driving around in a White Ford Fusion with temporary tags and is considered armed and dangerous.

Cleveland State University has issued a shelter in place, a campus spokesman said. The Cleveland Clinic is also on lockdown now because of the shooter.

Stephens’s Facebook and all posts have since been taken down. The video of the shooting was on his page for three hours.

Earlier on Sunday, Stephens blamed casinos and his lack of self control for the ‘Easter Sunday massacre’ in Cleveland.

Though only one of the murders has been confirmed by police, he claims to have killed at least 14 others, and a woman online claims that he killed a two-year-old as well.

In the original Facebook post that has since been removed, he said: ‘Easter day slaughter because of joy lane,’ and ‘I killed 12 people and I won’t stop unit my mother and joy lane call me.’ The woman named is believed to be his ex-partner.

Later on he claimed to have killed three more people, and said that the bodies were in an abandoned house.

In the live video, he pulls up to an elderly man in his car and says: ‘Finally found somebody I’m going to Kill, I’m going to go kill this old dude.’

He then gets out and walks up to the man. The two exchange a few words and the elderly man looks to be trying to shield himself. Stephens then lifts his gun and shoots him.

 

US court charges 2 Arab terrorists over murder of American woman in Jerusalem

Two Arabs affiliated with terrorist cells in Judea and Samaria were charged by US courts on Thursday in connection with an American woman’s murder in the Jerusalem Forest in 2010.

The woman, Kristine Luken, along with friend, Kay Wilson, had been hiking in the woods when they were attacked and stabbed by the two Arab terrorists. The second woman survived and testified in 2011.

On Thursday, murder charges were filed in a US District Court in Washington DC against Ayad Fatafta and Kifah Ghanimat , both 39 years old and from the Arab territories.

The terrorists were charged with murder of a US national outside the US.

Arrest warrants were issued, however, the two Arab terrorists were already convicted in Israel and are currently being held in an Israeli prison.

Fatafta was sentenced by Israeli courts to life plus twenty years, while Ghanimat was charged with two life sentences plus sixty years for the murder and another crime committed.

Luken, 44, held both US and UK citizenship. She had been visiting Wilson, a tour guide in Israel.

US drops ‘Mother Of All bombs’, bombs the hell out of ISIS in Afghanistan

The U.S. military dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday just days after a Green Beret was killed fighting ISIS terrorists there, a U.S. defense official confirmed.

The GBU-43B, a 21,000-pound conventional bomb, was dropped on an ISIS tunnel complex in Nangarhar Province.

The MAOB — Massive Ordinance Air Blast — is also known as the “Mother Of All bombs.” It was first tested in 2003, but hadn’t been used before Thursday.

“As ISIS’ losses have mounted, they are using IEDs, bunkers and tunnels to thicken their defense,” Gen. John Nicholson, Commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan, said in a statement. “This is the right munition to reduce these obstacles and maintain the momentum of our offensive against ISIS.”

For comparison, each Tomahawk cruise missile launched at Syria last week was 1,000-pounds each.

The weapon is a thermobaric bomb, which utilizes oxygen from the surrounding air to produce an extremely powerful pressure wave and tremendous heat.

As opposed to conventional, high-explosive munitions, which propel shrapnel in a quick, pointed manner, thermobaric weapons produce an explosion and pressure wave that is capable of traveling longer distances.

When used in a confined space such as a terror tunnel in this case, the effects of a thermobaric weapon like the GBU-43 are amplified as a result of being channeled and focused.
