Spain: Van driven into crowd in Barcelona, 13 killed, 50 injured

(Barcelona) In yet has become a familiar story line across Europe. A white van has been driven onto a pavement and into crowds near the popular tourist area of Las Ramblas in the city. 13 people has been reported killed and 50 injured. The driver did a runner, leaving behind a Spanish passport with an Arabic name inside the van. It has now been reported that Moroccan born driver (Driss Oukabir) who had barricaded himself inside a nearby Turkish restaurant has been arrested:
As this is ongoing, I will continue update this as the day goes on.

Holland: Religious bigot fined $3 million, ICC to pay that fine as he is skint

(The Hague) Ahmadal-Faqi al-Mahdi, who is currently serving a 9-year prison sentence for destroying ancient mausoleums in Timbuktu, has been fined $3.2 million in damages by the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Ahmad al-Faqi al-Mahdi 
The case revolves around how Mahdi led terrorists who destroyed nine of Timbuktu's mausoleums and the centuries-old door of the city's Sidi Yahia mosque in 2012. Mahdi was described as a member of Ansar Dine - an Islamic terrorist group which occupied Timbuktu for months, enforcing its own version of Sharia law on residents. The court has said the $3.1m (£2.4m) damages should go to the local community of Timbuktu protecting the sites. In its ruling, the ICC said that its reparations order was based on three categories of harm: "damage to the attacked historic and religious buildings, consequential economic loss, and moral harm." Part of the reparations costs will also go toward individuals whose livelihoods depended on the Timbuktu landmarks and whose ancestors' burial sites were wrecked in the attack. Mahdi pleaded guilty to the crime and apologised. He said he had been overtaken by evil spirits and urged Muslims not to follow his example.


However, this is where it gets silly. Mahdi is in prison and has no money, so the money for the damages will come from the ICC's Trust Fund for Victims.

So, can somebody please tell me how this punishes this religious bigot and sends a strong message to those who may carry out similar acts of destruction?

Gaza: Suicide bomber targets Hamas at border checkpoint

(Rafah) Whilst the leader of Hamas warns Israel with death and destruction if they even as much as look in his direction (yawn), it is facing a threat of its own from within its own band of brothers and on the border with Egypt.

For the past few years, Egypt has faced terrorism in the northern Sinai, predominantly near its border with… Gaza. Egypt has naturally closed off the vast majority of border crossings (legal and illegal). In order to get back into the good books of the Egyptians, Hamas has had to visibly patrol its border with Egypt, denying those who wish to murder death kill their right to do so.

Well, yesterday, a border patrol challenged a couple of idiots trying to leave Gaza for Egypt, and when they called their fellow terrorists over, one of them must have uttered those immortal magic words
“Allah Ackba!”
Which resulted in him exploding, killing one of the Hamas guards and injuring the others.

Gaza: Hamas takes page out of North Korean book of diplomacy and threatens to 'pummel' Israel

(Gaza City) The leader of Hamas, Yahya Sinwar, issued a threat to the Jewish nation on Wednesday where he threatened to “pummel” Israel if necessary.
"Hamas is not seeking a confrontation, but if such a confrontation should arise, Hamas will pummel Israel."
Sinwar, who was appointed as Ismail Haniyeh's replacement last February, warned Israel against "taking stupid steps against Gaza", adding that "the Palestinian resistance has the ability to respond to that." He also made it clear that Hamas was prepared for a confrontation and claimed that the organization's strength was greater than it was during Operation Protective Edge in 2014.
"Israel is not launching a new war against Gaza, which stresses its fear of the unknown that awaits it in Gaza."
The last war Hamas won against Israel.

Sweden: Man in court , for killing a father who refused to murder his wife and daughters, because they shook the hands of men.

(Grycksbo)  A 50 year old man is currently in court in Sweden on charges of murdering one of his male relatives for offending his honour.


It transpires that the thug (A clan leader no less)  in the dock, took offence with how  in 2015 the murdered man’s daughters, greeted young men  who had just completed a marathon with handshakes. He had a chat with their father and demanded he kill them in which to regain the family honour. He refused and In reply he cut off all contact with the older family member.

In May this year a number of people went to the popular fishing lake Stensjön outside Grycksbo in Dalarna. During the evening a fight occurred and the father of the two girls who the clan leader had demanded he sort out his daughters for honour was found dead after been stabbed in the neck with a pair of scissors. According to the accused, the younger man attacked him when he left the party and whilst searching for a rock in which to defend himself with, he just happened to find a pair of scissors. Naturally he is claiming he is the victim here, however when the wife of the dead man was interviewed by the police she revealed a motive for the killing:
"It is part of the culture of honour that the family head / clan leader thinks something and leaves an assignment to the father or brother and if they do not perform the assignment, you are killing the father / brother because they have not taken care of themselves,"
That angle has also been repeated by the Prosecutor Gun-Britt Strøm who has confirmed that the murder appears to be honorary-related.

The trail continues.

UK: Liberals force the Shadow Equalities Minister to resign for speaking the truth about Pakistani rape gangs

(UK) I wrote yesterday about how after years of silence regards Islamic rape gangs operating in the United Kingdom, people have started to ask (and speak out) about that silence. Sarah Champion, the MP for Rotherham (yes, that Rotherham where over 1000 girls were raped by Muslims), wrote an article in the Sun newspaper about that fact and the ethical latte drinkers didn’t like it one bit.


In fact, they mounted so much pressure on her, she was forced to resign from her position as Shadow Equalities Minister. Her resignation statement read:
I apologise for the offence caused by the extremely poor choice of words in The Sun article on Friday. I am concerned that my continued position in the Shadow Cabinet would distract from the crucial issues around child protection which I have campaigned on my entire political career. It is therefore with regret that I tender my resignation as Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities.
But worst of all, the Hamas and Hezbollah supporting leader of the Socialist Labour Party, whose motto at the last election was "For the many not the few", accepted her resignation. Let me encapsulate all of the above into one statement:
"The MP for Rotherham has had to resign from her position as the Shadow Equalities Minister because she spoke the truth about Pakistani rape gangs in the UK."

How the hell have we got to a position where speaking the truth about Pakistani rape gangs which target children has you losing your job as the Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities.

Nigeria: 3 female suicide bombers murder 28, injure 82

(Maiduguri) Three female suicide bombers blew themselves up at the entrance to a camp for refugees in north-east Nigeria yesterday, killing 28 people and wounding 82.


The attack — the latest in a string of assaults in the troubled region — took place in the town of Mandarari, 25 kilometres from Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state.

The first woman detonated her bomb causing mass panic and in the congregated confusion that followed 2 others, placed at strategic choke points, detonated theirs, causing the worst of the death and injury toll.

The bombers believed to be from Boko Haram who are trying to force through by deadly force a Sharia state, seem not to have noticed that not only are the vast majority of people in the northern half of Nigeria are Islamic, but they are already ruled by… Sharia law.
