Car Bomb Explosion Kills 15 in Nangarhar
[ToloNews] At least 15 people were killed and over 30 others were maimed in a boom-mobile explosion near the district governor’s compound in Ghanikhil district in the eastern province of Nangarhar
The unfortunate Afghan province located adjacent to Mohmand, Kurram, and Khyber Agencies. The capital is Jalalabad. The province was the fief of Younus Khalis after the Soviets departed and one of his sons is the current provincial Taliban commander. Nangarhar is Haqqani country..
on Saturday afternoon, local officials confirmed.

The Nangarhar governor’s front man confirmed the casualties and said some button men wanted to enter the district governor’s compound but were killed by security forces.

Obaidullah Shinwari, member of Nangahar provincial council, said at least eight of those killed in the attack are civilians.

The Afghan government in a statement on Saturday blamed the Taliban
...Arabic for students...
for the attack and said the Taliban and other terrorist groups continue their "crimes" against the people of Afghanistan.

"The Taliban and other terrorist groups, in collusion with them, continue their terrorist activities and, like today’s terrorist attack in Nangarhar, kill civilians every day and destroy public infrastructures," the Presidential Palace statement read.

According to local officials, children are also among those killed and maimed in the car kaboom.

Libya: Russian plane brings Syrian fighters to Sirte
A Russian cargo plane carrying Syrian fighters landed in Libya's Sirte province, controlled by warlord Khalifa Haftar, the Libyan army said on Saturday.

The aircraft arrived at 11.00 a.m. local time (0900GMT) at the Ghardabiya Airbase, according to officials from the Sirte and Jufra operation department of the Libyan army.

On Aug. 21, the Libyan government announced a truce and ordered its military to stop operations against Haftar's militias.

However, the Libyan army has since reported several breaches of the cease-fire by the militias.

Inside ISIS' new capital as terrorists carry out beheadings and take sex slaves
[DAILYSTAR.CO.UK] ISIS-linked jihadis have amassed a fighting force that is wreaking havoc and slaughtering its enemies.

The faceless myrmidons have killed more than 1,500 people in northern Mozambique and displaced more than a quarter of a million since 2017.

The southern Africa country has been overrun by snuffies in recent years. Back in August, ISIS snuffies captured the port town of Mocimboa da Praia, in the province of Cabo Delgado, and told locals it would be their new capital.

Yemen army says over 1,000 rebels killed September
[AA.TR] Government forces killed over 1,000 Iran's Houthi sock puppets
...a Zaidi Shia insurgent group operating in Yemen. They have also been referred to as the Believing Youth. Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi is said to be the spiritual leader of the group and most of the military leaders are his relatives. The legitimate Yemeni government has accused the them of having ties to the Iranian government. Honest they did. The group has managed to gain control over all of Saada Governorate and parts of Amran, Al Jawf and Hajjah Governorates. Its slogan is God is Great, Death to America™, Death to Israel, a curse on the Jews They like shooting off... ummm... missiles that they would have us believe they make at home in their basements. On the plus side, they did murder Ali Abdullah Saleh, which was the only way the country was ever going to be rid of him...
rebels in festivities in war-torn 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...
in September, the Yemeni army said on Saturday. A military statement cited by the September 26.net website said around 215 rebel commanders were among those killed last month.

The Houthi-run capital Sanaa saw the highest rebel corpse count with 285 Houthis killed, including 119 commanders.

There was no comment from the Shia rebel group on the claim.

Yemen has remained wracked by violence since 2014, when the Iran-aligned Houthi group overran much of the country, including Sanaa.

The conflict escalated the following year when 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...
and its Arab allies launched a massive air campaign aimed at rolling back Houthi gains and supported the country’s pro-Saudi government.

Antwerp Jews to lose army protection under new Belgium government’s plan
[Jpost] Approximately 18,000 Jews live in the city in close proximity. Several troops protect its Jewish quarter.

Antwerp’s Jewish community will lose its military protection under a plan by Belgium’s new government to eliminate the presence of soldiers in urban centers.

Approximately 18,000 Jews live in the city in close proximity. Several troops protect its Jewish quarter.

A clause in the government’s plan, which was announced in the coalition agreement signed earlier this week, speaks of a "gradual withdrawal" of the military from urban centers.

"This plan is causing real alarm in the rank-and-file of the Jewish community of Antwerp," Hans Knoop, a front man for the Forum of Jewish Organizations of the Phlegmish Region of Belgium, or FJO, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency in an interview about the plan. "Neither the actual threat nor the government’s own assessment of it have diminished."

Thousands of troops were deployed in Belgian cities in 2015 following deadly jihadist terrorist attacks in Gay Paree at the Charlie Hebdo
...A lefty French satirical magazine, home of what may well be the majority if the active testicles left in Europe...
satirical magazine and at a kosher supermarket. Most have been reassigned.
The cost of the military presence in the Jewish quarter is not known, but is believed to be relatively low because of the few soldiers.

The new Cabinet’s justice minister, Vincent Van Quickenborne, wrote on Twitter in February that Israel’s protests against the denigrating depiction of Jews at the carnival of Aalst were part of the "Jewish lobby" working overtime in Washington. Critics, including FJO, said the remark was antisemitic.

8 charged in French cryptocurrency scheme to finance jihadis
[AlAhram] Five other people who have been charged with financing terrorism will be sent to trial by the end of the year, the statement said

La Belle France's anti-terrorism prosecutor's office said Saturday that eight people have been charged for their alleged involvement in a complex scheme financing Islamic hard boyz in Syria through the use of cryptocurrencies.

Two suspects have been handed preliminary charges of financing terrorism and terrorist conspiracy in a judicial investigation opened Saturday. The same preliminary charges have been given to another suspect in a related case.

Five other people who have been charged with financing terrorism will be sent to trial by the end of the year, the statement said.

The prosecutor's office said French police arrested a total of 30 people around the country in the case. Most were released without charges.
Still, that’s thirty files opened or added to, including, one hopes, clones of their cell phones and computers in order to trace the networks.
Earlier this week, a statement from the anti-terrorism prosecutor's office said search warrants are out for the two main figures in the scheme, French jihadis who have likely been in northwestern Syria since 2013 and are suspected of creating ``the architecture of this network of terrorism financing.''

The scheme was initially uncovered by a team within the French Economy Ministry that traces fiscal fraud, money laundering and terror financing.
Très bien, guys!
This week's police operation targeted a financing network that has been active since 2019. It was based mainly on the purchase in La Belle France of cryptocurrency coupons, details of which were transferred by secure messaging to jihadis in Syria, who could then retrieve the money through cryptocurrency platforms.

Hundreds of thousands of euros are thought to have been supplied via the network, benefiting members of al-Qaeda still hiding out in Syria
... Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (Al Nusra) and their associates, one assumes,,,
and also jihadis of the 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....

Five Members of One Family, Including Four Children, Killed in 'Hammer and Knife' Attack in Paris Suburb
[BREITBART] Five members of one family, including four children, have been killed and five others injured after a relative committed a hammer and knife attack in a Gay Pareeian suburb. French media reports the incident occurred following a family dispute.

The attack happened on Saturday morning in the commune of Noisy-le-Sec in the Seine-Saint-Denis suburb, according to French television broadcaster BFM.

One of the survivors, a youth, reportedly walked into a bar covered in blood and asking for help. He told the bar manager his uncle had "gone mad" and attacked the rest of his family "with a knife and a hammer".

When police arrived at the house at around 11 am, they were forced to bust through the door with a battering ram, where they found two dead victims and multiple others injured, all believed to be of the same family. Three others died an hour and a half later despite the efforts of emergency services. The fatalities were reportedly one woman and four children.

Police also found five survivors who were maimed, some unconscious. All survivors were taken to hospital, with three adults believed to be at death's door. The other two surviving victims were adolescents who were not as seriously injured, according to franceinfo.

They also found the alleged perpetrator, the uncle, unconscious with the suspected murder weapons beside him. He was taken to a hospital in Clichy where he is receiving treatment.

"The scene was horrible," one officer told BFM. "Several of us are in shock."

Multiple media reports that the family, including the suspected attacker, the uncle, were identified as being of Sri Lankan or Pak origin. Police told the broadcaster that the initial investigation points to the attack being the result of a family dispute.

Fifth Column
Federal affidavit details accused New York rioter's ties to Antifa
[THEPOSTMILLENNIAL] An upstate New York suspect is facing federal charges for instructing their comrades to make Molotov cocktails to harm police in one of the few known cases where federal prosecutors explicitly detail the accused’s ties to Antifa
...the armed wing of the Democratic Party...
Mom and Dad, if any, must be so proud!
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of New York charged 27-year-old Ryan Howe, of Rochester, last week with using a facility of interstate and foreign commerce to incite, promote and encourage a riot. Howe—who uses the pronouns "they/them" and "she/her"—is also known as "Rylea Autumn."

Howe was among nine arrested on Sept. 2 by Rochester Police at a violent mostly peaceful Black Lives Matter-antifa protest at the Public Safety Building. Several dozen had gathered to protest the death of Daniel Prude, a black man who died in police custody. The criminal complaint filed by a Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent says Howe shook the metal barricade protecting the cop shoppe, and screamed to agitate the crowd to violence. Howe then allegedly wrapped themselves around a street sign to resist arrest and kicked to avoid being handcuffed.

According to the criminal complaint, Howe made a number of bully boyz posts throughout September that caught the attention of law enforcement. They allegedly urged violence against the state and law enforcement using arson attacks. On Sept. 8, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office alerted federal Sherlocks to Howe’s Facebook, which shows they espoused extreme antifa beliefs. Howe’s Facebook profile photo depicts them dressed in black bloc, with the accompanying text, "Antifascist
...anybody you disagree with, damn them...
Action." Antifascist Action is the original English-language antifa organization formed in the 1980s.

Howe’s Facebook bio line reads: "Genderqueer, Anti-Fascist, Anti-Racist, Anarcho-communist." Additionally, their Twitter account is filled with posts identifying with antifa and expressing support for communism. Howe’s other social media posts show they are heavily involved in far-left activism and organizing in the Rochester-area. They were previously arrested in July at another protest.

The complaint says that on Sept. 23, Howe wrote on Facebook, "Burn this sh— to the f—ng ground" in response to news that the Kentucky officer involved in Breonna Taylor’s death was charged with three counts of felony wanton endangerment, rather than murder.

A day later, Howe allegedly shared a recipe on how to make a Molotov cocktail and then instructed readers to throw it at police. They later posted on the same day: "Good morning to everyone ready to burn this whole f—ing country to the ground!" Howe’s third post was a graphic of a smiley face holding a flaming Molotov cocktail.

Howe allegedly posted a graphic of an emoji holding a molotov cocktail after earlier sharing a recipe and instructions to throw them at police
The affidavit says Howe admitted to making the posts when he was interviewed by an FBI agent. They said they obtained the Molotov cocktail recipe from an anarchist book.

Howe made an initial appearance in federal court last week and was released on pre-trial with conditions. Howe is required to undergo a mental health examination, is required to seek employment, do drug testing and adhere to a curfew. Howe’s next court date is on Nov. 17.

The FBI conducted the investigation alongside the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department and the Rochester Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Brett A. Harvey. If convicted, Howe faces a maximum penalty of 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The case is one of the few known federal prosecutions since riots began in May that allege a suspect’s explicit ties to Antifa.

#15  Re #13 "Nihilist," read this article ("Suicide of the Liberals," by Northwestern Prof. Gary Saul Morson, Oct 2020).

It's about how early 20c Russian liberals and businessmen gave wholehearted support to waves of anarchist and revolutionary terror that killed over 9,000 Russian officials and citizens in 1905-07, leading inevitably to the communist slaughter

"Why didn’t the liberals and businessmen see it coming?"

Federal Prosecutors Secure Guilty Plea From Portland Man Who Set Fire to County Property During Riot
[WWEEK] Edward Thomas Schinzing pleaded guilty Sept. 30 to a federal arson charge for setting fire to an office cubicle in the Multnomah County Justice Center on May 29.

As WW previously reported, the evidence against Schinzing was plentiful but the charges were unusual: Federal prosecutors argued in their July 28 indictment that they have jurisdiction over local property because the city of Portland received millions of dollars in federal assistance, namely COVID relief funding via the CARES Act.

"Based on that rationale, federal authority would exist anywhere in Portland," Jason Kafoury, a Portland civil rights lawyer, told WW in August regarding the Schinzing case. "It's also a scary precedent, because it's opening the door for federal authorities to arrest Portlanders anywhere, anytime."

The building prosecutors said Schinzing set fire to is owned jointly by the city and county. His guilty plea is significant because it's among the first cases successfully prosecuted by federal officials against Portland rioters who damaged local property through fires and vandalism.

Oregon Public Broadcasting reported Oct. 1 that the U.S. Attorney's Office for Oregon, headed by Billy Williams, has levied federal charges against 90 Portland protesters. Williams told OPB that FBI agents have "combed through hundreds of arrests by local police" in search of possible federal charges to levy against Portland protesters.

The federal charges also indicate an attempt to rebuff newly elected Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt, who vowed to drop most nonviolent mostly peaceful charges against Portland protesters.

Schinzing faces a mandatory minimum five-year prison sentence for the arson, according to federal sentencing guidelines. He faces a maximum sentence of 20 years.

Israel arrests senior Hamas leader in West Bank
[IsraelTimes] Terror group and its rival Fatah both claim arrest of Hassan Youssef for ’renewed activity’ is aimed at interfering with Paleostinian reconciliation talks.

Hassan Youssef, the leader of Hamas, always the voice of sweet reason, in the West Bank and one of the terror group’s founding members, was arrested Friday morning at his house in Ramallah by Israeli security forces.

In response to a query by The Times of Israel, a security source confirmed the arrest and alleged that Youssef had been involved in "renewed Hamas activity." No public charges have yet been filed.

The Shin Bet domestic security service, which is responsible for counterterrorism activities in the West Bank and the Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response...
Strip, declined to comment.

Since helping found the Hamas terror movement in the 1980s, Youssef has been arrested numerous times and spent years in Israeli prisons. While still behind bars in 2006, he was elected to the Paleostinian parliament.

Hamas has consistently claimed that Youssef is only active in its political wing, not its military wing, and has no involvement in terrorist activities. Both branches of the terror group avowedly seek to destroy Israel.

In a statement condemning Youssef’s arrest, Hamas claimed that Israel had arrested the West Bank commander for purely political reasons.

The rival Fatah and Hamas movements have been at odds since 2007, when a bloody struggle for control of Gaza led to Hamas expelling the Fatah-dominated Paleostinian Authority from the coastal enclave. Several rounds of unity talks over the past 13 years to reconcile Fatah and Hama have failed to bridge the gaps between them.

After reconciliation talks in Istanbul in late September, the two rival movements agreed to set a date for Paleostinian legislative elections within the next six months. Such announcements have fizzled out before, but this has not stopped bigwigs in both Fatah and Hamas from claiming this time is different.

"We hereby affirm that the arrest Sheikh Hassan Youssef by the occupation will not stop the path of unity for which he worked for the past two months," Hamas said in a statement.

Fatah Secretary-General Jibril Rajoub also condemned Youssef’s arrest, accusing Israeli authorities of what he called "tampering" with the ongoing Paleostinian reconciliation talks

"This arrest is a continuation of the occupation’s approach to arresting dozens of our Paleostinian people every day, and a continuation of the continuous aggression against our people for decades. It comes within the framework of attempting to tamper with Paleostinian affairs and influence the achievement of national unity," Rajoub said.

IDF: Clip from Hezbollah tour of Beirut ‘workshop’ proves it’s a missile factory
[IsraelTimes] Army details how machinery seen at site is used to produce munitions, indicates equipment from another facility spirited away after being outed as belonging to terror group.

The Israel Defense Forces on Friday countered a Hezbollah claim that a Beirut factory identified by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier in the week as a missile production site was a civilian workshop, identifying the machinery in the facility as that which is needed for the production of precision-guided munitions.

Shortly after the premier on Tuesday revealed the location of the alleged Hezbollah site in the al-Janah neighborhood of the Lebanese capital, the Iran-backed terror group led a tour of journalists to the factory, claiming it was a civilian-run affair.

Iraqi refugee killed in Hawl camp, four women arrested
[NPASYRIA] An Iraqi refugee died in Hawl Camp, Syria on Saturday when unknown assailants riding a cycle of violence shot him in one of the camp’s markets.

A security source from Hawl camp said that the victim was 25-year-old Musaab, who died instantly after being shot in the head 3 times.

He added that the perpetrators fled, and investigations are still underway to find out the details of the incident.

Hawl camp includes about 65,000 Iraqi and Syrian refugees, and wives and children of ISIS members.

In a related context, security forces in the camp arrested four Iraqi women, accompanied by three children, while they were trying to flee from the camp.

The camp witnesses frequent killings, as well as many attempts to flee the camp.

Another security source told North Press that a tanker driver working with UNICEF tried to smuggle four Iraqi women from Hawl camp by hiding them in the tank, but the camp’s security forces thwarted the attempt.

Dozens of government soldiers killed in ISIS attack in Syria's Deir ez-Zor
[NPASYRIA] 17 members of the Syrian government forces were killed and 35 others were maimed in an attack by ISIS cells on a position of government forces south of Deir ez-Zor at dawn on Saturday.

Local sources reported to North Press that ISIS cells attacked government forces at the Taim oil field south of Deir ez-Zor with medium weapons, RPGs, and mortars.

The source added that ISIS relied on jacket wallahs, and then violent mostly peaceful festivities took place in the region.

The sources indicated that the government forces present at Deir ez-Zor Airport tried to support the heavy artillery, but they did not succeed in stopping the ISIS attack.

Russian warplanes were forced to quickly intervene with missiles.

Russian military police arrested a leader of the Qura Guard group of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard on Friday evening in the town of Buqrus Tahtani in the countryside of Deir ez-Zor.

According to the same sources, the arrest came after a leader, called Abdel Moneim Haramesh, hit a member of the Third Brigade of the Russian-backed Fifth Corps.

Haramesh is the director of a recruitment center whose mission is to recruit people for the benefit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.
