Europe
German police threaten Israeli with crime for show of Israeli flag
Some years ago Frankfurt am Main — definitely not the other Frankfurt in East Germany on the Oder River— was the proud possessor of a Jewish mayor. It sounds like he was not reelected.
[Jpost] German Moslems call young Israeli musician a ’Nazi’

The police in the German city of Frankfurt launched a criminal investigation against the young Israeli musician Ana Agre for her display of an Israeli flag at an anti-Jewish state demonstration organized by a pro-BDS group that supports convicted Paleostinian terrorists.

The prominent German-Israeli author Chaim Noll on Friday first reported on the popular German website "The Axis of Good" about the threatened criminal case against Agre, an Israeli musician who works in Germany.

According to Noll, "On July 1st, 2020, she ran into an anti-Israel-demonstration close to her home, arranged by the pro-Paleostinian organization Samidoun. She went upstairs into her flat to fetch an Israeli flag and took position on the square where the protesters were marching along, together with their German supporters."

The flag, wrote Noll, was "about the size of a kitchen towel." Samidoun is an organization that seeks to secure the release of convicted Paleostinian murderous Moslems from prison and supports the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel.

Noll reported that a Frankfurt "police officer addressed her in English, recorded her identity and advised her to leave the location for reasons of her appearance being provocative to the young Moslems."

He continued that "Ana obviously indulged in a discussion with the police officer, in English, who finally ended the debate by officially ordering her to leave. When she would ask him why, here in Frankfurt, she was not allowed to display the flag of Israel, the officer responded: "Because I don’t like it."’

According to Noll, "Several of the marching groups approached Ana and overdrew her with slogans, among them ’Nazis out.’ In the minds of these young Moslems and their German supporters, an Israeli flag apparently is a Nazi symbol."

He said "A few days later a paper hit her postbox, summoning her to the Frankfurt criminal police headquarters because of an ’offense according to Criminal Code, paragraph 185,’ scheduled October 7th, 2020.

He commented about the criminal proceeding against Agre that she "is threatened by legal prosecution because she was displaying the flag of Israel in Frankfurt am Main, Germany... the police takes the position of the Moslem protesters and their German scene of support."

The city of Frankfurt is located in the state of Hesse and is the election district for controversial German Green Party MP Omid Nouripour, who is on the advisory board of pro-Boycott Israel entity, the German Paleostinian Society. The pro-BDS group has, in an art exhibit, called for the abolition of Israel. Nouripour declined to answer a Post query about Agre's case. German-Iranian dissidents have accused him of stoking racism and antisemitism.

Dutch city names as its poet a rapper who called Holocaust a ‘joke’

[Jpost] A Dutch city named as its resident poet a rapper who in a 2012 song called the Holocaust a "cover up for dumb sheep" and a "joke" compared to slavery.

The office of Jos Wienen, the mayor of Haarlem, a city of about 160,000 residents that is the capital of the Dutch province of North Holland, announced Darryl Danchelo Osenga’s title of city poet on Wednesday, sparking passionate protests from Dutch Jews and non-Jews.

Osenga, whose stage name is Insayno, "will give the institution of city poet a new direction," the statement on the honorary nomination read. "His poems overflow with love for language and for the city of Haarlem." The city gives the honor every other year to a different artist.

In a statement, the Center for Information and Documentation on Israel, or CIDI, expressed its "shock" at the decision, citing his 2012 song "Black Page," among other objections.

In that track, Insayno says: "Only talking about the war. The Holocaust is just a cover-up for dumb sheep. I see you think, this can’t be: Eight million Jews? I’m talking about 18 million slaves. The treatment at the concentration camps is just a little joke in comparison with our slave trade. Gassing people, that’s also sad but just for laughs you should learn about torture."

The municipality of Haarlem said in a reaction to the protests that the mayor spoke with Insayno on the subject and that he had apologized and distanced himself from the poem. "He deserves a second chance," the statement said.

Political responsibility lies with the Hessian state executive.

However Feldmann is a Social Democrat; his party is no more friendly to Israel than the Hessian governing coalition (CDU (Merkel) & Green Party.)

He said they seemed to be scared of them so they beat them up.. Son lives in a high rise near the stadium where there are more homeless. He thinks the rioters haven't headed toward his area due to their fear of the homeless.

"There is, even now, something of ill-omen, amongst us. I mean the increasing disregard for law which pervades the country; the growing disposition to substitute the wild and furious passions, in lieu of the sober judgment of Courts; and the worse than savage mobs, for the executive ministers of justice.

"Accounts of outrages committed by mobs, form the everyday news of the times. They have pervaded the country, from New England to Louisiana... .

"[Those who have always] regarded Government as their deadliest bane make a jubilee of the suspension of its operations; and pray for nothing so much as its total annihilation... .

Turkey to Arrest 82 Including Mayor over Pro-Kurdish Protests
Regular mass arrests are necessary to keep a totalitarian government afloat, but eventually you have to find ever more ridiculous excuses as the target group shrinks.
[AnNahar] Ottoman Turkish authorities on Friday issued arrest warrants for 82 people, including a mayor, over pro-Kurdish protests six years ago, officials and local media said.

The warrants relate to October 2014 protests in The Sick Man of Europe Turkey

Canadian police arrest man over 'hoax' Islamic State activity
[Jpost] Shehroze Chaudhry made social media posts talking about his role with Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi.

, gave several media interviews but a police investigation found the 25-year-old had no links to the group.


Canadian police have arrested a man on suspicion of lying about having joined Islamic State and committed execution-style killings, charging him with "hoax-terrorist activity," authorities said late on Friday.

Starting in 2016, Shehroze Chaudhry, made social media posts talking about his role with Islamic State and also gave several media interviews but a Royal Canadian Mounted Police investigation found the 25-year-old had no links to the group.
Okaaaayyy.... but why arrest him now? What changed?
"The charge stems from numerous media interviews where the accused ... claimed he traveled to Syria in 2016 to join the terrorist group ISIS and committed acts of terrorism," the RCMP said in a statement.

The RCMP said the interviews and podcasts that featured on a television documentary raised public safety concerns amongst Canadians.

He initially told CBC News he joined ISIS in 2014 as an enforcer in the Syrian city of Manbij.

Chaudhry also gave detailed accounts of shooting blindfolded, tied-up civilians in the back of the head when speaking on the New York Times

...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize...

podcast Caliphate.

Chaudhry will appear in an Ontario court on Nov. 16.

"Hoaxes can generate fear within our communities and create the illusion there is a potential threat to Canadians, while we have determined otherwise," the RCMP said.

"As a result, the RCMP takes these allegations very seriously, particularly when individuals, by their actions, cause the police to enter into investigations in which human and financial resources are invested and diverted from other ongoing priorities."
So we see.

India-Pakistan
Pakistan says Indian fire kills 1 soldier in Kashmir
[AlAhram] Pakistain's military said Sunday that Indian troops opened fire across the border in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir
...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there....
, killing one soldier.

In a statement, it said Pak troops responded by targeting the Indian posts where the fire originated, causing ``substantial damage'' on the Indian side but gave no details.

The Indian army said its troops ``befittingly'' responded to Pak firing and shelling along the Line of Control on Saturday in southern Rajouri district. It reported no damage or casualties.

India and Pakistain routinely accused each other of unprovoked attacks along the tense Kashmir frontier in violation of a 2003 cease-fire agreement. Pakistain says India has violated the truce more than 2,000 times this year alone.

Kashmir is split between the nuclear-armed rivals and both claim it in its entirety. They have fought two wars over Kashmir since their independence from British colonial rule in 1947.

Tensions soared in February 2019, when a suicide kaboom killed 40 Indian troops in the Indian-controlled part of Kashmir, and India retaliated with Arclight airstrike
...KABOOM!...
s inside Pak territory. Pakistain shot down one of the warplanes in Kashmir and captured a pilot who was quickly released. India said the strikes targeted Pakistain-based bully boyz responsible for the suicide kaboom

Relations have been further strained since August last year, when India revoked the Moslem-majority region's decades-old semi-autonomous status, touching off anger on both sides of the frontier. Since then, troops have frequently shot it out, leaving dozens of civilians and soldiers dead on both sides.

Philippine Police: Arrested Militant Recruited Fighters for IS-Linked Group
[BenarNews] Philippine police have arrested a man in the Manila area who allegedly recruited fighters for the local branch of the krazed killer group known as 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. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
, the country’s top cop said Monday.

The suspect, Kevin Madriñan, did not resist arrest when officers raided his hideout in Quezon City on Thursday. Madriñan also goes by the names Ibrahim Abdullah Madriñan and Ibrahim Khalil al-Garaba, national police chief Gen. Camilo Cascolan told news hounds.

Arresting officers seized a handgun, a grenade and cash from the suspect, Cascolan said.

"Background investigation revealed that Madriñan is a Moslem convert who is the contact person and liaison in Luzon of Daulah Islamiyah members," Cascolan said. The Daulah Islamiyah is the local name for the Islamic State (IS).

"He is responsible for the recruitment of Moslem converts and facilitating their travel to Mindanao for training and jihad exposure," the chief said.

Investigators allege Madriñan received orders directly from Abu Turaife, the leader of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters
...a MILF splinter group aligned with the Islamic State...
(BIFF), a Death Eater group that operates in the southern Philippines. It is a splinter group of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, once the country’s largest separatist group that signed a peace deal with Manila and controls a Moslem autonomous region in southern Mindanao Island.

Turaife, who leads a few dozen followers, broke away from the MILF’s chain-of-command after accusing the leaders of selling out when they dropped their independence bid.

A day after Madriñan’s arrest, suspected BIFF holy warriors detonated a homemade bomb along a road in the southern Maguindanao province, killing a Marine and injuring four others.

Lt. Col. Anhouvic Atilano, front man for the Army’s 6th Infantry Division, said members of Marine Battalion Landing Team-5 were on a truck patrolling the highway between Shariff Aguak and Datu Hoffer towns in Maguindanao when the bomb went kaboom! Friday evening.

"It was a terrorist attack, a retaliation because we had an operation against them," Atilano said.

Militants linked to IS were blamed for a siege in 2017 that led to a five-month battle with government forces and left the southern city of Marawi in ruins.

While about 1,200 Death Eaters, security forces and non-combatants were killed in the battle that ended on Oct. 23, 2017, authorities said those who escaped spread across Mindanao in the south and have set out to recruit Moslem fighters across the mainly Catholic country.

The IS-linked holy warriors have been blamed for deadly attacks including the twin suicide kabooms in Jolo last month that left 15 people dead and more than 70 injured.

Two members of Lebanese security forces killed in armed clashes
[Jpost] They were killed when snuffies opened fire on an army checkpoint in the northwest area of Araman.

Two members of the Lebanese Security Forces were killed in an exchange of gunfire with snuffies in the north of the country late on Saturday, the army said.

They were killed when snuffies opened fire on an army checkpoint in the northwest area of Araman, the army said on Sunday. One krazed killer was killed, while several fled.

In a separate incident on Saturday, Lebanese security forces killed at least six snuffies during a heavy exchange of fire with an gang in northeast Leb
...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozeen flavors of Christians. It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers...
, close to the Syrian border, security sources said.
Three members of the Lebanese security forces were maimed in the clash, which began after Lebanese forces raided a house in the Wadi Khaled area, where the group that was suspected of planning attacks was holed up, the sources said.

Security incidents across the country have increased in recent weeks, as the country has been pushed to breaking point by a financial meltdown and a political vacuum following the resignation of the caretaker government over an Aug. 4 port blast, which left nearly 200 people dead.

Lebanon's caretaker Prime Minister Hassan Diab
...who really would like to retire, if only some other sucker could be fooled into taking his place...
strongly condemned the attacks in a statement on Sunday, and called for the feuding political blocs to rapidly form a new government capable of addressing Lebanon's myriad problems.

The country is on edge amid fears violence could escalate and compound the country's crises.

Sources told Rooters that the group in Wadi Khaled included Syrians and Lebanese, adding that the scale of the clash, in which snuffies fired rocket-propelled grenades, prompted the Lebanese army to cordon off the area.

The sources said the group included people linked to the krazed killer Khaled al-Talawi who was killed this month in a shootout with security forces.

Talawi was described as a former member of 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. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
and leader of a cell behind the killing in August of three people in north Lebanon.
