Africa North
Morocco Targets Migrant Smuggling 'Mafia'

[AnNahar] Morocco has launched an operation against people-smuggling mafia and the migrants colonists they bring in from sub-Saharan Africa, a government source said Thursday.

Hundreds of African migrants colonists, who had hoped to make their way to Europe, have been picked up in the north of the country and placed in detention centers since the operation was launched last week, the source said.

"The aim is to take them out of the hands of the mafia gangs which have developed in the country," the source added, without giving precise figures.

The anti-migrant action was launched after hundreds of migrants colonists forced their way into the Spanish territory of Ceuta by violently storming a heavily fortified border fence with Morocco.

Ceuta along with Melilla, Spain's other tiny territory in North Africa, have the European Union
...the successor to the Holy Roman Empire, only without the Hapsburgs and the nifty uniforms and the dancing...
's only land borders with Africa, drawing migrants colonists trying to reach the bloc.

A total of 4,382 migrants colonists have entered the two territories by land since the start of the year, according to the International Organization for Migration.

More than 32,000 migrants colonists have arrived in Spain by sea and land this year, making it the main entry point for migrants colonists arriving in Europe, after Italia and Greece.

The Moroccan authorities on Thursday held information meetings on their new anti-migrant operations for African and European ambassadors in the capital Rabat.

Blackpool terror alert: Illuminations patrolled by ARMED cops after ISIS threat
[Star] As this evening’s world famous event attracts thousands, armed cops will be on alert following warnings of a seafront terror attack.

Daily Star Online exclusively revealed Brit seasides are a prime targets for ISIS terror nuts looking to commit copycat attacks using vans to plough into crowds.

Last year as it was revealed ISIS terrorists were seeking to replicate the horror of London-based attacks in the UK's provincial towns ‐ targeting large open promenades in a bid to "maximise casualities".

Jihadis may be seeking to attack Brits walking on seafronts - with Blackpool at the top of the list.

Now, cops have told Daily Star Online armed officers will be patrolling tonight’s event.

Broadway tenor and Blackpool native Alfie Boe is set to flick the famous switch, starting 66 nights of Illuminations.

Thousands of people will pack the promenade as the lights get switched on, with many more watching the concert at Tower Headland.

Ella Eyre, Jonas Blue, Diversity and DVJ, Rae Morris, HRVY, and Club MTV DJs R3Wire and Varksi will perform at the biggest party in Blackpool’s calendar.
Blackpool Tower is a tourist attraction in Blackpool, Lancashire, England, which was opened to the public on 14 May 1894. Inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris, it is 518 feet tall and is the 120th tallest freestanding tower in the world. Wikipedia

I'll say! In a new Muslim way!
Why, look, it's a freak show
Of sheikhs fresh from Heathrow
To catch, from a snackbar

The hourly shower
Of boys from the tower.
For the livestock, they'll rent
On the Strand a nice tent.
And five times a day, they all pray!
Hooray! An enlightening display!"

Too much British Pathé last night, possibly.

Dutch police shoot suspect after he stabs two people at an Amsterdam train station
[DAWN] Police in the Dutch capital shot and maimed a suspect Friday following a stabbing at Amsterdam's busy central railway station.

Amsterdam police said in a series of tweets that two people were maimed in the stabbing and the suspect was then shot by officers. All three people were taken to a hospital.

Police said the motive for the stabbing was under investigation and "all possible scenarios are being kept open." Police said that two platforms were closed to train traffic, but the station wasn't evacuated.

Trams to and from the square in front of the station were stopped as police and emergency services converged on the area. Red and white police tape kept members of the public away from the scene.

Central Station is a busy entry and exit point for visitors to the Dutch capital, with regular trains linking it to the city's Schiphol Airport.

Friday is one of the busiest days of the week, with many tourists arriving for the weekend.

#4  One of the subjects in the Chemnitz murder that triggered the demonstrations fled to the Netherlands to avoid deportation from Germany.

He illegaly applied for asylum in the Netherlands (after applying in Bulgaria and Germany) and returned to Germany after the German deportation order had expired. (link in German)

The actual flooding of Germany and by extension Europe with hostile men of military age works reliably. Everything else is just pretend; smoke and mirrors.

A Trump tweet drawing the public's attention to this fact wouldn't hurt.

I admit I'm unfamiliar with German bureaucracy, but how does that work exactly? To say "We were unable to boot him out by Thursday, so let's just forget the whole thing" seems a bit untidy and not at all Germanic.

Posted by: Besoeker || 09/01/2018 16:12 Comments || Top||

#9  how does that work exactly?

According to the "Dublin rules" asylum seekers whose applications are supposed to processed in another EU country have to deported to that country with 6 months. If that doesn't happen the responsibility shifts.

There's no real need to go into these details actually. We're dealing with legal Calvinball.

The rules are made up or ignored as necessary. Apparently the goal is flooding Europe with hostile military age males from the Islamic world.

FBI Arrests 5 'Extremist Muslim' New Mexico compound residents on weapons and conspiracy charges
[NM State - KRWG] ALBUQUERQUE ‐ The FBI has arrested five residents of a compound in Amalia, in Taos County, N.M. (Amalia Compound), on a federal criminal complaint charging them with violating the federal firearms and conspiracy laws. The arrests were announced by U.S. Attorney John C. Anderson and Special Agent in Charge James C. Langenberg of the FBI’s Albuquerque Division.

The defendants, Jany Leveille, 35, a Haitian national illegally present in the United States, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Hujrah Wahhaj, 37, Subhanah Wahhaj, 35, and Lucas Morton, 40, are charged in a criminal complaint that was filed earlier today in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico. The criminal complaint charges Jany Leveille with being an alien unlawfully in possession of firearms and ammunition in the District of New Mexico from Nov. 2017 through Aug. 2018. The criminal complaint charges the other four defendants with aiding and abetting Leveille in committing the offense, and with conspiring with Leveille to commit the offense.

According to the criminal complaint, on Aug. 3, 2018, law enforcement officers of the Taos County Sheriff’s Office executed search warrants at the Amalia Compound, where the five defendants were residing, and allegedly seized at least eleven firearms and a large quantity of ammunition. The complaint alleges that the firearms were transported from Georgia and/or Alabama to New Mexico in Leveille’s vehicle.

The FBI arrested the defendants without incident in Taos, N.M., this afternoon with the assistance of the Taos County Sheriff’s Office. The defendants will make their initial appearances in federal court in Albuquerque on September 4, 2018.

Palestinians clash with IDF on Gaza border; 180 said wounded
[IsraelTimes] Protests come amid reports Israel is in advanced talks with Hamas, a contraction of the Arabic words for "frothing at the mouth",, via UN and Egyptian mediation, for a long-term truce; hand-grenade said thrown at IDF troops.

Some 5,000 Paleostinians protested Friday along the border between the Gazoo Strip and Israel, with some 180 maimed, according to Paleostinian reports.

The Hamas-run health ministry in Gazoo said some 180 demonstrators were maimed in festivities with IDF troops, including several who were hit by live fire.
Almost all, however, were briefly annoyed by tear gas, stubbed toes, and ndearly invisible splinters.
Among the maimed were a ten-year-old boy and a female paramedic, identified as Horouq Abu Masamah, the ministry said.

The IDF had no immediate comment.

The Ynet news site said that a hand-grenade was thrown at IDF troops and that Paleostinians also managed to down an IDF drone used to disperse tear gas on the protesters. There were no IDF injuries, Ynet said.

One incendiary balloon sent over the border from the Strip caused a fire near Kibbutz Be’eri. Fire fighters extinguished it before it could spread.

The festivities came despite reports that Israel is in advanced indirect talks with Hamas, via UN and Egyptian mediation, for a long-term truce in the Strip.

At least 171 Gazooks have been killed by Israeli fire since the start of the festivities, according to the Hamas-run health ministry. An Israeli soldier was shot to death by a Paleostinian sniper. Hamas has acknowledged that dozens of the Paleostinian fatalities were members of terror groups.

Ynet has some photos and video.

Kurdish forces kill two Turkish servicemen in Syria’s Afrin
[ALMASDARNEWS] At least two Ottoman Turkish soldiers and two Syrian rebel fighters were killed when Kurdish forces targeted their checkpoint in Afrin region, northern Syria.

According to a statement released by YPG press office, a Kurdish unit carried out a ’sabotage operation’ against a checkpoint jointly run by Ottoman Turkish Army and al-Hamza Division; a Tukish-backed FSA faction.

The operation, which took place in Barbana village of Rajo district, completely destroyed the checkpoint, killing 2 Ottoman Turkish servicemen and 2 FSA myrmidons, and injuring several others.

Scores of FSA-affiliated myrmidons, including senior commanders, have been assassinated recently by Kurdish units since the Syrian rebels ‐ backed by Ottoman Turkish military ‐ took over Afrin last March.

Idlib rebels blow up bridges to hamper expected assault: monitor
[Rudaw] Rebels from Idlib have blown up two key bridges in a bid to hamper an expected government assault on Syria's only remaining rebel-held province, a monitor said on Friday.

The bridges over the Orontes River linked areas of neighbouring Hama province under government control to rebel-held territory in Idlib, the Britannia-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

They were blown up by Islamist factions from the National Liberation Front (NLF), the main non-jihadist alliance in Idlib, Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said.

"They were the two main bridges in the area, but there are others," he told AFP.

The bridges were located in the al-Ghab plain, which straddles Hama and Idlib provinces and could be one of the first targets of any government offensive.

Government forces have been massing around Idlib province for weeks, particularly in al-Ghab which was once a key farming area.

"The rebels have seen the intense activity on the regime side, with the arrival of tanks and armoured vehicles," Abdel Rahman said.

"Rebel groups are reinforcing their positions in anticipation of a military operation."

In recent days, both the government and its ally Russia have stepped up their rhetoric against the rebel presence in Idlib, which is dominated by the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham
(HTS) jihadist alliance formed by al-Qaeda's former Syrian branch, al-Nusra
...formally Jabhat an-Nusrah li-Ahli al-Sham (Support Front for the People of the Levant), also known as al-Qaeda in the Levant. They aim to establish a pan-Arab caliphate. Not the same one as the Islamic State, though .. ...

"The Syrian command has taken a decision to defeat al-Nusra Front in Idlib no matter the sacrifices that it would entail," Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said on Thursday.

On Wednesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called on the West not to stand in the way of an "anti-terror operation" in Idlib, saying: "This abscess needs to be liquidated."

Ottoman Turkish troops are also stationed in the area and Ankara -- which backs the NLF -- has expressed opposition to any large-scale offensive that sparks a new exodus of refugees.

An assault on Idlib by Damascus and Moscow could be the last major battle of the civil war that has torn Syria apart since 2011.
