Bomb goes off inside classroom in eastern Afghanistan, wounding 19 students
[DAWN] An Afghan official says a bomb has gone off inside a classroom in eastern Ghazni province, wounding at least 19 university students.

Arif Noori, front man for the provincial governor, says 12 of the maimed are female students of the Ghazni University, located on the outskirts of the bucolic provincial capital, the city of Ghazni. Noori added that two of the maimed are at death's door.
#Clarification
We received reports of an explosion inside a university in #Ghazni
IEA strongly condemns this action & considers targeting of educational facilities a violation of Islamic & humanitarian principles.

#1  Scrap "possible"

At least two people have been killed after gunmen opened fire outside a synagogue. One woman died after two attackers, believed to be wearing a military-style uniforms, opened fire with a submachine gun in the city of Halle, eastern Germany.

A grenade was also thrown into the Jewish cemetery before the attackers fled, Bild reported.

Several others were wounded and rushed to hospital.

Police have since arrested one suspect, and told people to 'stay alert' while the manhunt continues.

#8  The perpetrators tampered with the door, but could not penetrate. They opened fire with automatic weapons on the door and window. The synagogue's security measures withstood, otherwise it would probably have been a bloodbath.

They aren’t paying jizya directly, but this is the modern version of a Jew tax. Where were their outside guards?

Deutsche Welle is behind on reporting the latest developments, but adds:

Shots were also reported in the neighboring town of Landsberg following the shooting in Halle, but police did not immediately provide further details or say whether the two shootings were related.

Officials said that police protection near synagogues was being strengthened in Halle, Leipzig and Dresden for the time being. In Leipzig, major commemorations are planned for this evening to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the rallies that eventually led to the fall of the Berlin Wall.


It remains to be seen if the miscreants are neo-Nazi types or Muslim colonists. That they were in military-style uniforms suggests native Joo haters, but no doubt it will be revealed.

#12  "Where were their outside guards?"

Wondering, too. Munich synagogue is well guarded, and a day like today, extremely well.

And yes, it's sad that you can't visit this beauty without reserving a place in a tour 2 weeks in advance.

#17  You know if the guards had shot the attackers, the police would have disarmed the guards, leaving them open to the next attack. That's why I suspect the outside guards didn't engage.

#18  It seems to me that there were no human guards outside, just a security camera and a fortified entrance.

‘Chelsea bomber’ convicted in attempted murder trial stemming from New Jersey shootout with police
[PIX11] A New Jersey man already serving a life term for planting bombs in New York City has been convicted of attempted murder and assault stemming from a shootout with police three years ago.

Ahmad Khan Rahimi
...the naturalized Afghan known wolf (who came as a result of chain migration, after his father received asylum) who didn’t die a martyr in a hail of bullets as planned, after planting bombs in Manhattan and New Jersey. He was inspired by ISIS and Al Qaeda, and trained in a Taliban feeder madrassa in Pakistan. After his second stay there, his father reported him to the FBI, who, sadly, were not suffciently impressed. In the early days of the investigation his name was given as Ahmad Khan Rahami and Ahmad Khan Rahmani...
sat quietly during the reading of the verdicts Tuesday

Rahimi engaged police in a shootout after they found him in Linden, New Jersey. He fired at several officers and was maimed himself.

The jury deliberated over two days before convicting the Afghanistan-born naturalized U.S. citizen of all 30 counts.

Rahimi’s attorney argued his client acted in self-defense.

A New York jury convicted Rahimi last year of setting off a bomb, injuring 30 people. A second bomb failed to go off.

Rahimi also is charged in New Jersey with placing bombs in two locations.

Protests resume in Iraq’s Sadr City as uprising enters second week
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Iraq’s government issued a second package of proposed social reforms on Tuesday in an attempt to appease the demands of anti-government protesters who for eight days have demonstrated nationwide, with the loss of 110 lives and 6,000 maimed.

Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi issued a 13-point plan centered on subsidies and housing for the poor, as well as training and educational initiatives for unemployed youth.

Abdul Mahdi, following a cabinet meeting, posted his reforms on social media. Most Iraqis have been cut off from the internet and social media for several days now.

Protests resumed on Monday night in Baghdad’s Sadr City district, with at least one member of the security forces killed, although much of Iraq appeared quieter than it has been for a week as politicians sought a way to end an uprising.

Iraqi security forces began arresting protesters after nightfall on Tuesday in eastern and northwestern parts of Baghdad, police sources told Rooters. Police were carrying photos of protesters taken in recent days to identify them and arrest them. Iraq’s semi-official high commission for human rights
...which are usually open to widely divergent definitions...
said that 800 people were tossed into the calaboose last week, with about 500 already released.

Protesters, who have called for the removal of the government and a political class it views as corrupt have clashed with the security forces, mainly in Baghdad and the south.

Iraq’s military said on Tuesday one member of an Interior Ministry force was killed and four maimed when they came under fire from unknown assailants in Sadr City, where 15 people died the previous night in riots.

The violence has been the worst in Iraq since it put down an insurgency by the Sunni Moslem Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more.

group nearly two years ago, and the biggest test for Abdul Mahdi, in office for a year.

The spread of the violence to Sadr City this week could heighten the security challenge posed by the protests. Unrest has historically been hard to put down in the district, where around a third of Baghdad’s 8 million people live with little electricity or water and few jobs.

Protesters set fire to tires outside the municipal council building and courthouse in Mudhaffar Square, police said. The gunfire that targeted the security forces was fired from a crowd of protesters, according to the police.

Protesters say they have come under attack by members of the security forces using live ammunition. Rooters journalists have witnessed protesters being killed and maimed by snipers firing from rooftops into crowds.

Iraq’s military on Tuesday called back into service those officers and soldiers dismissed on suspicions they abandoned cities and towns to an ISIS
...embracing their inner Islamic Brute...
onslaught in 2014.
Watch the hands, not the lips...
Parliament, which held its first session on Tuesday since the crisis began, discussed the move and reform plans aimed at pacifying protesters.

’s Hamas, the well-beloved offspring of the Moslem Brotherhood, rulers have been waging a "secret war" against followers of the Islamic State and other Salafist groups in the Strip, according to a recent report in the Lebanese daily Al Akhbar.

Officials told the pro-Hezbollah daily Thursday that Hamas in recent months has arrested four Salafist cells in Gaza that were planning to carry out attacks on the group’s security forces and brass hats. Hamas forces also confiscated weapons, including long-range rockets capable of hitting major cities in Israel.

The effort was said to have been launched in August, after a jacket wallah allegedly linked to IS killed a Hamas guard in southern Gaza along the border with Egypt, in a rare attack against the ruling group.

The paper said the cells were looking for opportunities to carry out suicide kabooms against the terror group that rules Gaza while simultaneously seeking to ramp up tensions with Israel. The Salafist cells were allegedly responsible for launching long-range rockets at Tel Aviv during fragile ceasefires between Hamas and Israel, and were receiving funding for their activities from unknown foreign sources.

Gaza officials said they believed the young fighters were radicalized online, and were trying to provoke Israel into launching a broad military offensive in the Strip that would cripple its Hamas rulers.

Hamas, an Islamist terror group avowedly seeking to destroy Israel, has run Gaza for over a decade but it has been challenged by small, still more hardline factions, some of them inspired by IS, that advocate a stricter, Salafist interpretation of Islam.

Last year, the Islamic State’s Sinai branch declared war on Hamas, calling the group and its supporters "apostates."

In recent months, the groups have launched sporadic rocket attacks into Israel in defiance of an informal truce agreed to by Hamas.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is widely seen as wanting to avoid an escalation in Gaza, but he has faced calls for strong action from his electoral opponents.

border crossing last week.

Two merchants were arrested at the Kerem Shalom crossing when border officials discovered 69 coins concealed in their textile truck bound for the West Bank, Channel 12 news reported Tuesday.

The coins were confiscated by the Civil Administration, and both men were detained for questioning.

Israel has previously confiscated ancient artifacts from Gaza border crossings that were allegedly smuggled from Egypt into the Gaza Strip and were en route to Israel for sale.

Fixed just after the rollover, so at least it will be visible to those who check back later. Sometimes, for reasons unknown, an article with YouTube videos has to be put through moderator’s edit — without making any changes —after publishing, in order to make the thing show up as it did in Preview.

Sorry for not getting to it until late, but y’all were resilient and created a workaround.
