Afghanistan
Hizb-e-Islami protests in Kabul against obstruction of peace process
[KhaamaPress] A large number of Hizb-e-Islami protesters poured on Kabul streets over and near the Presidential palace calling slogans against those who hamper the grinding of the peace processor.

Protestors gave a 10-day deadline to the government to address their demands, protesters supervised by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar
... who used to be known in intelligence circles as The Most Evil Man in the World but who now seems merely run-of-the-mill evil...
blamed the government for assassinations and called an end to it.

They also called on the government to stop opposing the grinding of the peace processor, ceasefire, transfer of the power to a new government, and pay respect for the DOHA agreement.

Gulbuding who is known for his role in Afghanistan’s civil war and fight against the Soviet invasion joined the grinding of the peace processor in September 2016 following an agreement with the Afghan government.

Before joining the grinding of the peace processor the group was listed as an krazed killer group who were carrying similar attacks like ISIS and Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
on the International forces, the Afghan government, and its public.

Jihadist Hizb-e-Islami group is considered a close ally to Pakistain
...their payroll is a standing item in the ISI budget...
and calls the country their second home, took part in tearing Afghanistan apart besides other Jihadist groups during the civil war and has recently called for "prevention of looting of national treasures", transfer of the government,
...meaning surrender to the Taliban...
the release of all its members from prison and inclusion of the group within the government.

In such a critical situation after visiting Pakistain in October 2020 Hizb-e-Islami’s leader today said if their demands are not met, all their demands will change to one demand and that would be "step down, step down" referring to the current government.

"Afghanistan and its people should learn from previous failed grinding of the peace processor attempts and civil wars and continue efforts for a long and real peace in the country", a Kabul resident told Khaama Press.

It is noteworthy that in 2012 Hizb-e-Islami used "Fatima an 18-year-old girl" from kabul to carry out a suicide kaboom near the Kabul airport in which 12 people were killed.

Africa Horn
Al-Shabaab claims murder of ‘Brave, inspiring’ Somali journalist
[Garowe] al-Shabaab
...... the Islamic version of the old Somali warlord...
claimed the responsibility for the murder of a veteran news news hound and editor who was on Monday rubbed out in Galkayo, a town that borders Puntland
...a region in northeastern Somalia, centered on Garowe in the Nugaal province. Its leaders declared the territory an autonomous state in 1998. Puntland and the equally autonomous Somaliland seem to have avoided the clan rivalries and warlordism that have typified the rest of Somalia, which puts both places high on the list for Islamic subversion...
and Galmadug.

Jamal Farah's killing marks the first journalist to be killed in Somalia this year, in the latest wave of violence targeting the media, in a country where freedom of speech is almost equivalent to a treasonable offense.

Farah, a radio journalist, was shot by button men in a shop he used to run in the northern town in the evening and rushed to a nearby hospital where he breathed his last, according to witnesses.

Following the cold murder, the terror group has taken responsibility for the liquidation in is part of the cases of arbitrary arrests, harassment, and even murder targeting journalists are synonymous in Somalia.

The media watchdogs have condemned Farah's killing and even called for an urgent probe by Puntland authorities. Police are said to have commenced investigations as they try to bring the culprits to justice.

Mohammed Abdirahman, an advisor to Puntland President Said Abdullahi Deni, also condemned the murder, while recognizing immense contributions made by the slain journalist. Farah, he noted, was a chief critic of al-Shabaab holy warriors.

"My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Jamal Farah Aden killed in Galkayo. He was a brave journalist who dared to criticize terrorists," he said. "I salute and encourage Somali journalists to continue their work to inform the public despite the daily struggles and risks."

Galkayo has been a hotbed of terror in central Somalia, something which prompted operations by the Puntland and Galmudug
...a semiautonomous region in central Somalia, bordering Puntland on the north. Galmudug is not trying to obtain international recognition as a separate nation, but rather considers itself autonomous within the larger Somali federalism, for what that's worth...
joint security forces, who have managed to flush quite a number of bandidos holy warriors from the Mudug region.

Car bomb at bust restaurant leaves 20 dead in Somalia’s capital
[Garowe] At least 20 people were killed and more than 30 others injured when a massive boom-mobile went kaboom! Friday outside a restaurant in Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu.

Witnesses tell Garowe Online’s English service the blast occurred outside the front door of Lul Yemen
...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of...
i restaurant along the seaport road, one of Mogadishu's busiest streets lined with businesses.

"An explosive-laden vehicle went off in front of the Lul Yemeni restaurant at 8:10 p.m. local time, which was busy and at dinner time," said a witness who asked for anonymity.

A nearby residential building collapsed with many people inside with reports that a rescue operation was launched to save the lives of the civilians under the debris.

Mogadishu’s hospitals said at least 30 other people have been injured in the boom-mobile explosion which came just hours after the third round of talks between PM and opposition candidates ended in failure.

Al-Shabaab
...... Somalia's version of the Taliban, functioning as an arm of al-Qaeda...
claimed the responsibility for the deadly evening attack, in the latest of boom-mobileings on hotels and restaurants frequented by politicians, babus government employees, diaspora, and the city’s elite.

Some analysts attribute the anxiety to the fact that a large number of bully boyz fleeing from U.S. Arclight airstrike
...KABOOM!...
s on their rural bases in the south have fled to Mogadishu.

In mid-last January, the U.S. withdrew its troops from Somalia under Trump's order and repositioned them to bases in Djibouti and Kenya, where they can continue to launch dronezaps in the country.

Al-Shabaab gunmen attack Puntland prison holding Extremists
[Garowe] al-Shabaab

has launched an attack in Somalia’s northeastern Puntland
...a region in northeastern Somalia, centered on Garowe in the Nugaal province. Its leaders declared the territory an autonomous state in 1998.

state on Thursday night, setting free most high-profile bully boy inmates held at the central jail in Bossaso city.

Bari Regional Police chief Hussein Ali Mohamud has confirmed the attack to the media, adding that the murderous Moslems stormed the prison at midnight following a gun and bomb assault that left 8 soldiers dead.

Mohamud added that Puntland security forces re-arrested some of the prisoners who had escaped during the al-Shabaab midnight attack.

Al-Shabaab claimed victory in the attack and said in a statement through its mouthpiece Andalus radio that they had released 400 detainees, including holy warrior convicts and other inmates, among them ISIS.

However,

there has been no official statement on the exact inmates freed from the Puntland Government. The raid comes amid vast military operations against the murderous Moslems in the Bari region’s mountains.

The most dangerous al-Shabaab and ISIS snuffies detained by the security forces were kept in the prison, including those serving life sentences or awaiting execution after being sentenced to death.

Al-Shabaab, which is linked to al-Qaeda, has been waging a brutal insurgency in Puntland for more than a decade, killing top regional, security, and government officials in boom-mobiles and liquidations.

The group has been pushed out of Mogadishu in 2011 and faced defeats in the battle with government and African Union

Somalia: Al-Shabaab Executes 5 People for Spying
[AllAfrica] The Somali-based al-Qaeda-affiliated terror group al-Shabaab
...... the personification of Somali state failure...
has executed five people in the southern town of Jilib in Somalia's Middle Juba region.

Abdirahman Adan, a local official of the Jubaland administration in the state's administrative capital Kismayo
...a port city in the southern Lower Juba province of Somalia, at the extreme southern end of the country (always assuming Somalia can be called a country). It is the commercial capital of the autonomous Jubaland region....
, told Anadolu Agency over the phone that the people executed by al-Shabaab were civilians.

"It's not the first time al-Shabaab turbans execute civilians, and they also forced the people of the Jilib town to come out and watch the execution," he said.

Hundreds of people were gathered in Jilib, southern Somalia, where the terror group executed the five people.

The Middle Juba is the only region in the Horn of African country that al-Shabaab fully controls.

The terror group accused the five executed of spying for US and Somali intelligence agencies, according to al-Shabaab-affiliated media on Tuesday.

They were executed publicly by a firing squad after a so-called al-Shabaab court in Jilib allegedly convicted them of being spies for US and Somali intelligence agencies.

Al-Shabaab's leader Ahmad Abu Ubaida meanwhile released a new audio message on Monday marking the centennial death anniversary of Sayid Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, a Somali legendary leader that fought against the British and Italian colonists in Somalia in the early 20th century.

The Somali-based al-Qaeda-affiliated group al-Shabaab has been fighting against the Somali government and African peacekeeping mission forces in Somalia for over a decade.

Africa North
Libyan Official Demands inquiry into Armed Attack in Tripoli
[LIBYAREVIEW] On Thursday, the Head of the Administrative Control Authority (ACA) in Tripoli
...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...
, Suleiman al-Shanti called on the Acting Attorney General to take all necessary measures to confront the attack on the authority’s headquarters by an gang.

Al-Shanti said that he had filed a note to the Minister of Defense of the Government of National Accord, Salah al-Din al-Namroush demanding that all necessary legal measures be taken to stop any further attacks on public institutions.

In a statement, the ACA Head claimed that an gang led by Anwar Faraj Eswaisi, and backed by the 301 and Tajoura’s Rahba brigades, stormed the ACA building under the pretext of enabling Abdallah Qadboh to assume his duties as the ACA’s Head. This is based on the decision of the first deputy Speaker of the High Council of State (HCS) in Tripoli.

According to the statement, the decision was contrary to Article 15 of the 2015 Skhirat Political Agreement, on the appointment of sovereign positions.

He added that the 301 and the Rahba brigades are affiliated with the MoD and called al-Namroush to order their immediate withdrawal from the ACA headquarters.

New Zealand arrests 2 over threats against mosques on anniversary of attacks
[IsraelTimes] New Zealand police arrested two people Thursday over online threats against two Christchurch mosques targeted in a white supremacist attack two years ago that claimed the lives of 51 Moslems.

Police in the South Island city announced the pair’s arrest as Christchurch prepares for the second anniversary of the horrific attack on March 15, 2019.

They said no charges had yet been laid and did not provide further details.

"We take all threats of this nature seriously and we are working closely with our Moslem community," police said.

"Any messages of hate or people wanting to cause harm in our community will not be tolerated — it’s not the Kiwi way."

In March 2019, Australian national Brenton Tarrant targeted men, women and kiddies who had gathered for Friday prayers in Christchurch, killing 51 and injuring dozens more.

The self-proclaimed white supremacist was jugged
Book 'im, Mahmoud!
for life last year without the possibility of parole.

Europe
Man wielding knife overpowered outside Jewish school, kosher store in France
[IsraelTimes] School in Marseille locked down as security guards stop armed man trying to enter shop, hand him over to police; authorities boost security for city’s Jewish sites.

A man armed with a knife attempted to enter a kosher grocery store near a Jewish school in the city of Marseille Friday morning, before being overpowered by security personnel and arrested by police.

The man was first spotted by security guards at the Yavne Jewish high school in the city emerging from a vehicle with a knife. Media reports said he had a piece of cloth, possibly a towel, wrapped around his head.

It was initially reported that the man, said to be in his 60s, attempted to enter the school. Police later said that he made no attempt to enter the school, but was noticed by security personnel behaving suspiciously. They then followed him as he attempted to go into the kosher shop and wrestled him to the ground.

"The attention of school security personnel was drawn to the suspicious behavior of the individual in the street," a police statement said.

The children were sequestered inside the school while police searched for any explosives or accomplices, a police spokeswoman said. No one was hurt in the incident and the man’s motives remain unclear, she said.

"The man was immobilized until the arrival of [police]," she said.

Police towed away the suspect’s car and cordoned off the area. Local police have reinforced security around Jewish sites in the city in the wake of the incident.

Fifth Column
London: No Prison for BLM Protester Who Hurled Metal Fences at Fleeing Police Officers
[BREITBART] A Black Lives Matter (BLM) supporter who hurled sections of metal fence at fleeing coppers in London has been allowed to walk out of court with a suspended sentence.

Shayden Spencer, 20, admitted violent mostly peaceful disorder in the British capital and showed up for his sentencing late, but still escaped with a suspended sentence, small fine, and requirement to perform some upaid work and attend a 15-day rehabilitation course after the judge and even the prosecutor appeared to join the defence in attempting to offer mitigation for him in court.

"The defendant is seen clearly to walk towards the waist-height barrier and throw a piece of barrier that had been broken up. He then returns 55 seconds later and does exactly the same thing," said Tyrone Silcott for the prosecution, describing footage of his attack — but then went on to say Spencer had "expressed his regret [for] what he described as being in the heat of the moment. He said his actions did not ’reflect the person I am’."

"He stated he went to the Black Lives Matters protest as part to raise a voice for racial rights in a peaceful manner. He said he never thought the protest would become violent mostly peaceful," the prosecutor went on, according to a MailOnline court report, adding that "It was the first protest he had ever attended" and that he "expressed serious regrets for his actions".

Judge Gregory Perrins, too, appeared more than willing to offer excuses for the convict, conceding that Spencer had committed "an extremely serious offence of public disorder" but adding that he had been "swept away with events as they unfolded" and "shown true regret".

The judge went on to praise Spencer — a teaching assistant — as being "plainly someone who has the potential for a bright future".

If it were a PEACEFUL non-property destructive Protest like MLK jr. demanded of his 1960's protesters and conducted, I would strongly agree.

But BLM quickly became Black Lives "Only" Matter (BLOM) and nothing more than a bunch of ANTI-WHITE Racist Political Thugs.

Simply stated. Peaceful Protesters do not inflect Bodily Harm, nor engage in 100's of Millions of dollars in Private and Public Property Looting and destruction.

Or, is there someone here willing to explain how beating up people and breaking out store windows to steal BIG Screen TV's is Social Justice?

BTW: The BLOM radical subversive group has been exposed to have clear ties to and funding by several Anti-Capitalist Socialist / Communist sources.

Iran Guards Say Foiled Plane Hijacking
[AnNahar] Iran's Revolutionary Guards said Friday that they foiled the hijacking of a plane by an assailant who intended to have the internal flight redirected to a neighboring Gulf Arab country.

"The plot to hijack a Fokker-100 plane of Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
Air... was neutralized on Thursday night by the vigilance of the Guards," said a statement posted on the Guards' Sepahnews website.

The plane had departed Ahvaz airport
...probably connected to ASMLA, The Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahwaz, an Iranian Arab nationalist group that advocates secession of Khuzestan Province to establish an Arab state...
in southwestern Iran for Mashhad in the northeast at 22:10 pm (1840 GMT) on Thursday before the attempted hijacking was made, the Guards said.

"The perpetrator of the plot" was arrested after the "urgent landing of the plane at Isfahan airport" in central Iran, the statement said, without elaborating.

"The plane's passengers, who are in perfect health, flew to their (final) destination on an alternative flight," the statement said, adding that an investigation was underway.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps are in charge of security for Iran's airports and airspace.

Iran has tense relations with several of its neighbors across the Gulf, especially its regional rival Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
, but also Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.
