-Lurid Crime Tales-
21 busted in Beaumont, Tx for human trafficking.
[11Alive] Beaumont Police and the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office worked together for a two-day joint operation targeting what officials called "sex buyers."

The 21 men arrested were soliciting sexual relations from both minors and adults, Beaumont Police said. Investigations are still ongoing, but additional charges are expected.

"Human trafficking is modern day slavery — the exploitation of men, women and children for forced labor or sex by a third party for profit or gain," Riley said in a statement. "A person doesn’t have to be transported across borders for trafficking to take place — it can occur anywhere."
The list of arrested Johns at the link includes American names, Hispanic names, and names from the Indian subcontinent, both Hindu and Moslem. So at least the customers are ecumenical. No prostitutes were named, so perhaps they were ecumenical, too.

Afghan security forces kill al Qaeda's second in command Abu Muhsin al-Masri, two years after the US listed him as one of the world's most wanted terrorists
[Daily Mail] Afghan security forces have killed Abu Muhsin al-Masri, a senior al Qaeda leader who was on the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorists list, Afghanistan's National Directorate of Security (NDS) said in a tweet late on Saturday.

The head of the U.S. National Counter-Terrorism Center, Chris Miller, confirmed al-Masri's death in a statement, saying his 'removal... from the battlefield is a major setback to a terrorist organization that is consistently experiencing strategic losses facilitated by the United States and its partners.' Al Qaeda's loss of al-Masri, Miller continued, 'highlights the diminishing effectiveness of the terrorist organization.'

Al-Masri has been charged in the United States with having provided material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization, and conspiracy to kill U.S. nationals.

Al-Masri, believed to be al Qaeda's second-in-command, was killed during a special operation in Ghazni province, the NDS said. The al Qaeda operative, who also went by the name Husam Abd-al-Ra'uf, was an Egyptian national, according to the FBI.

Somalia: Authorities in Puntland Seize Boat Carrying Illegal Weapons
[All Africa] 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...
security forces announced they captured boats carrying weapons in a naval operation carried out on early Sunday.Puntland security forces (PSF) said the aim of the operation was to counter groups seeking to illegally smuggle weapons from the coasts.

"The PSF has conducted a naval operation off the coasts of Lasqoray, Eelayo and Adado to prevent groups from attempting to smuggle weapons into those coasts and the PSF has received information,"

Booby traps left inside Sinai homes by IS kill at least 14 civilians
[IsraelTimes] Jihadists took over town of Bir al-Abd, but were later then driven away, leaving behind explosives that have claimed the lives of women and kiddies.

More than a dozen civilians, including women and kiddies, were killed in Egypt’s restive northern Sinai Peninsula over the past two weeks from bombs laid down in their homes by terrorists, security and medical officials said Sunday.

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....
jihadists in July attacked several villages in the town of Bir al-Abd, forcing people to flee their homes. The military secured the villages in August and allowed residents to return to their homes a few weeks later, the officials said.

The terrorists, however, had laid booby traps in several houses that they took over. The explosive have killed at least 14 people, including six from the same family late on Saturday, officials said. The casualties included women and kiddies.

At least ten others have been maimed since October 12 and were taken to the town’s hospital for treatment, they said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.

Bir al-Abd was the site of a horrific krazed killer attack on a mosque in 2017 that killed over 300 worshipers, some of them fathers praying with their young sons. The tribes of North Sinai have been heavily targeted by Islamists who view their veneration of Moslem saints and shrines as heretical, forcing a mass exodus of residents from the impoverished area that has long been underdeveloped by the government.

Violence and instability there intensified after the military overthrew the country’s Islamist president in 2013 amid nationwide protests against the Moslem Brüderbund group’s divisive
...politicians call things divisive when when the other side sez something they don't like. Their own statements are never divisive, they're principled...
rule. Extremist snuffies have since carried out scores of attacks, mainly targeting security forces and minority Christians.

The conflict has largely taken place out of public view, with journalists and outside observers barred from the area. The conflict has so far not expanded into the southern end of the peninsula where popular Red Sea tourist resorts are located.

In February 2018, the military launched a massive operation in Sinai that also encompassed parts of the Nile Delta and deserts along the country’s western border with Libya. Since then, the pace of Islamic State attacks in Sinai’s north has diminished.

Europe
France indicts Chechen-born refugee for ‘liking’ photo of murdered teacher
[IsraelTimes] 22-year-old charged with glorifying terrorism; several knives and other weapons found at his home, prosecutors say.

A young man who "liked" a gruesome Twitter picture showing French teacher Samuel Paty after he was murdered has been charged with glorifying terrorism, French authorities said Sunday.

Paty was attacked and killed on the street for showing his students cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in a class on free speech.

His killer, an 18-year-old Chechen refugee who had been living in La Belle France since he was a child, was rubbed out by police. Before his death, he posted a picture of the teacher’s severed head on Twitter.

The 22-year-old man charged on Sunday is also of Chechen origin, the public prosecutor in the central town of Blois, where he lives, said.

He was already on the radar of the authorities for having endorsed a massacre at the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo
...A lefty French satirical magazine, home of what may well be the majority if the active testicles left in Europe...
that first published the Mohammed cartoons.

Several knives and other weapons were found at his home, prosecutor Frederic Chevallier.

The man denied being radicalized, Chevallier added.

Antifa militants attack 'Jews for Trump' supporters in New York City, 7 in custody
Image is the man caught throwing rocks and eggs at the Jewish Pro-Trump people.
[The Post Millennial] An all out brawl broke out in Times Square in New York City on Sunday. Antifa militants raided through a police barricade and attacked Jewish pro-Trump supporters and pro-police demonstrators.

NYPD formed a barricade to prevent conflict but this did not last. Videos are appearing all over social media, depicting a shocking amount of violence, seemingly in broad daylight and in the Manhattan city center.




Courtesy of 3dc:


More tweets with video at the link. And more from the Daily Mail:
  • MAGA fans and anti-Trump protesters faced off in Times Square in New York City on Sunday

  • A #JewsForTrump convoy with about 1,000 cars paraded through Manhattan before being met by protesters

  • Video showed protesters ripping flags off cars in the convoy and throwing red paint

  • Police were seen arresting at least four protesters as several brawls broke out

  • The convoy was set to culminate with a rally in Flatbush, Brooklyn

  • Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani made an appearance at the parade outside Trump Tower
The Times of Israel adds:
Skirmishes broke out between supporters and opponents of US President Donald Trump
...Perhaps no man has ever had as much fun being president of the US...
as a Jews For Trump convoy of hundreds of cars draped with American flags and Trump 2020 banners rolled slowly through Manhattan and Brooklyn on Sunday afternoon.

New York City police said seven people were taken into custody in connection with physical confrontations in Times Square
The demonstration was planned as part pre-election rally for the Republican president and part protest against coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague)
...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men...
restrictions in some heavily Jewish areas of New York where spiking infection rates have been recorded.

The caravan traveled from Coney Island to the Trump Tower in Manhattan before heading to a rally in a Brooklyn park. Cars in the procession blasted remix versions of the president’s speeches, festive Jewish music and soundtracked campaign slogans.

Videos shared on Twitter showed several protesters pelting the vehicles with eggs or stones, snatching flags and shouting insults.

New York City police said seven people were taken into custody in connection with physical confrontations in Times Square, but did not specify whether the suspects were the drivers or the protesters. Charges were pending Sunday night.

  • Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani was pelted with eggs as he made a brief appearance in the procession
  • In total, police arrested seven people - five men and two women - who were detained on an array of charges
  • The convoy culminated with a rally in Flatbush, Brooklyn

    Giuliani was confronted outside Trump Tower as he sat in the passenger seat of a car talking to police officers. He gave his hecklers a thumbs up as they waved dollar bills at him.


    One wonders what the vicious little idiots think those dollar bills mean in Mr. Giuliani’s case...

    India-Pakistan
    Two terrorists held by CTD killed in 'encounter'
    [DAILYTIMES.PK] Two bully boyz of the banned Tehrik-e-Taliban
    ...Arabic for students...
    Pakistain were killed in an encounter in Sukkur, the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) stated on Sunday.According to CTD officials, an operation was carried out on Jaffarabad Road in Sukkur on a tip-off from the federal agency.

    Terrorists on cycle of violences indiscriminately opened fire to avoid arrest. However,
    some men learn by reading. A few learn by observation. The rest have to pee on the electric fence for themselves...
    both the bully boyz were maimed in retaliatory firing; they died on the way to the hospital.

    The operation took place on Jafarabad Road after the CTD received a tip-off from its sources.

    The suspected bully boyz have been identified as Mujeeb Ullah and Muhammad Anwar. It is believed they are part of the Tehrik-e-Taliban.

    Explosives and a cycle of violence were also seized from their possession.

    The CTD in charge said they were involved in attacks on security forces and were experts on making boom jackets.

    No one from police was hurt in the incident because, the sources said, they were wearing bullet-proof vests.

    #4  Yup - sez right here he was 'RCC Vice Chairman', right next to Qusay (Ace of Clubs). Never had the gumption to actually play cribbage with that deck - I'll see what my cribbage buddy says about that.

    Jihadists affiliated with the armed opposition factions affiliated with Turkey raise the ISIS flag and burn the French flag in the city of SereKaniyê
    To be fair, a lot of them were ISIS fighters before they took Sultan Erdogan I’s shilling. So they just unpacked the ISIS flags stored at the bottom of their backpacks.
