Three Islamic State militants setting up an ambush in a bitterly contested area of northern Iraq were killed by a herd of stampeding boars, local leaders say.
Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and supervisor of anti-ISIS forces, told The Times of London the militants were hiding on the edge of a field about 50 miles southwest of Kirkuk when the boars overwhelmed them Sunday. Five other militants were injured, al-Assi said. He said the group was poised to attack a band of local tribesmen who had fled to nearby mountains since militants seized the town of Hawija three years ago.
“It is likely their movement disturbed a herd of wild pigs, which inhabit the area as well as the nearby cornfields,” he said.
Al-Assi said the militants had summarily executed 25 people attempting to flee the militant’s would-be caliphate in the three days before the boars attacked. Hawija, about 100 miles south of Mosul, sees dozens of residents flee to Kurdish Kirkuk daily, and the Iraqi military has planned to launch an offensive in the region after a laborious effort to liberate Mosul is completed.

The Associated Press says the death toll is rising!
The number of militants killed in an attack by the largest non-nuclear weapon ever used in combat by the U.S. military has risen to 94, an Afghan official said Saturday.
Ataullah Khogyani, spokesman for the provincial governor in Nangarhar, said the number of Islamic State group dead was up from the 36 reported a day earlier. A Ministry of Defense official had said Friday the number of dead could rise as officials assessed the bomb site in Achin district.
“Fortunately there is no report of civilians being killed in the attack,” Khogyani said.
The U.S. attack on a tunnel complex in remote eastern Nangarhar province near the Pakistan border killed at least four IS group leaders, Khogyani said. He said a clearance operation to assess the site of the attack was continuing.
The Right Scoop also points out what soldiers are saying about America using its big stick
Give the Left a worthwhile cause and they will latch onto it, Then, slowly, but most assuredly, they will bastardize it, twist it, and use it to further their agenda. This time the cause is fighting bullying, and the Left is being joined by CAIR
Educrats and Islamomaniacs are teaming up to impose ham-fisted moonbattery under the banner of antibulling:
Muslim safe spaces, increased lessons on Islam during social studies classes, and other measures will be adopted by San Diego Unified School District to combat bullying.
The Council for American-Islamic Relations and school officials in southern California collaborated on a “holistic” approach to bullying that will likely be implemented this fall. The changes, which include adding Muslim holidays to school calendars, are the result of a study directed by the San Diego school board in July 2016.
CAIR is a terror support group affiliated with Hamas.
“It’s more of a comprehensive program, not just a curriculum,” said Stan Anjan, the district’s executive director of family and community engagement, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Wednesday. “We’re looking at it from a very integrated and holistic approach.” …
“If we do this right, San Diego Unified School District would be the leading school district in the nation to come up with a robust and beautiful anti-bully and anti-Islamophobic program,” Mr. Anjan told the newspaper.
If CAIR is involved, it is propaganda, and nothing more. No parent should allow their child to have anything to do with this. Here is more on CAIR
Having explained why the UAE listed CAIR on its terror manifest, we must ask a second question: Is the listing warranted? Can a Washington-based organization with ties to the Obama White House, the U.S. Congress, leading media outlets, and prestigious universities truly be an instigator of terrorism? CAIR can rightly be so characterized. True, it does not set off bombs, but, as the UAE’s foreign minister explains, “Our threshold is quite low. . . . We cannot accept incitement or funding.” Indeed, CAIR incites, funds, and does much more vis-à-vis terrorism:
It apologizes for terrorist groups: Challenged repeatedly to denounce Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups, CAIR denounces the acts of violence but not their sponsors. It is connected to Hamas: Hamas, designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. and many other governments, indirectly created CAIR and the two groups remain tight. Examples: In 1994, CAIR head Nihad Awad publicly declared his support for Hamas; the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), a Hamas front group, contributed $5,000 to CAIR; in turn, CAIR exploited the 9/11 attacks to raise money for HLF; and, this past August, demonstrators at a CAIR-sponsored rally in Florida proclaimed “We are Hamas!” It settled a lawsuit: CAIR initiated a libel lawsuit in 2004 over five statements by a group called Anti-CAIR. But two years later, CAIR settled the suit with prejudice (meaning that it cannot be reopened), implicitly acknowledging the accuracy of Anti-CAIR’s assertions, which included: “CAIR is a terrorist supporting front organization that is partially funded by terrorists”; “CAIR . . . is supported by terrorist supporting individuals, groups and countries”; “CAIR has proven links to, and was founded by, Islamic terrorists”; and “CAIR actively supports terrorists and terrorist supporting groups and nations.” It includes individuals accused of terrorism: At least seven board members or staff at CAIR have been arrested, denied entry to the U.S., or were indicted on or pled guilty to (or were convicted of) terrorist charges: Siraj Wahhaj, Bassem Khafagi, Randall (“Ismail”) Royer, Ghassan Elashi, Rabih Haddad, Muthanna Al-Hanooti, and Nabil Sadoun.
In short CAIR has no good will towards America, or liberty. In short they are our enemies
When it comes to giving advice about “Islamophobia,” CAIR is the last organization Republicans—or anyone, for that matter—should listen to. That’s because CAIR has been listed as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has categorized any organization critical of Islamism and Islamist extremism as either outright promoting hatred of Muslims or supporting anti-Islam themes, and has been active in shutting down free speech in the name of Islamophobia.
The “values” of CAIr are incompatible with Western culture
While CAIR has shown support for terrorist organizations even while speaking out against violence, it has spent much of its money and energy going after so-called Islamic hate groups and individuals in the United States. In its recent report, “Legislating Fear: Islamophobia and Its Impact in the United States,” CAIR outlines its vision for America and the groups it sees standing in the way of that vision.
CAIR divides organizations and individuals who are standing in the way of those goals into two groups. The “Inner Core” comprises organizations or individuals “whose primary purpose is to promote prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims and whose work regularly demonstrates Islamophobic themes.” The “Outer Core” groups are those who might not appear to be promoting prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims, but their work “regularly demonstrates or supports Islamophobic themes.”
Thirty-seven groups make up the Inner Core, including ACT! for America, American Freedom Law Center, David Horowitz Freedom Center, Florida Family Association, Jihad Watch, Middle East Forum, and Tennessee Freedom Coalition.
Thirty-two groups make up the Outer Core, including American Center for Law and Justice, American Family Association, Christian Broadcasting Network, Eagle Forum, Fox News, Liberty Counsel, Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, National Review, The Mark Levin Show, The Rush Limbaugh Show, The Savage Nation, Washington Times, and Worldnet Daily.
Along with publishing these kinds of warnings about Islamophobia both in Inner and Outer Core groups, CAIR is active in shutting down the speech of anyone it has labeled anti-Muslim. CAIR was recently successful in getting a Federal Bureau of Investigation representative to withdraw from speaking at a Texas event called “Domestic Jihad & Isis,” hosted by St. Mary’s University’s Center for Terrorism Law in San Antonio, that was initially sponsored by ACT! for America. After CAIR’s protest, the event dropped ACT! as a sponsor and one of its speakers, John Guandolo, whom CAIR said was an “anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist.”
Again, if CAIR has its hands in this, parents must not say no, they must say HELL NO!
What would Hillary’s immigration stance be? No, I am not referring to a “wall” that is never going to get built anyway, no matter which party s in power. I am not even wondering about our Southern border, which is a crucial issue. No, my biggest concern is immigration by refugees. Refugees whose values are simply incompatible with American values. Daniel Greenfield has similar concerns
The wave of Muslim refugee terror began with a bomb targeting a U.S. Marine charity run in New Jersey. By evening a pressure cooker full of shrapnel has exploded outside a Manhattan building for the blind. An hour later, a rampaging Muslim terrorist began stabbing people inside a Macy’s, asking them if they were Muslim and shouting the name of “Allah,” the genocidal Islamic deity of mass murder.
And that was one Saturday, two Muslim refugees and a wave of national terror 1,200 miles apart.
What did Elizabeth, New Jersey and St. Cloud, Minnesota have in common?
New Jersey has the second largest Muslim population in the country. This isn’t the first time it was used as a staging ground for Muslim terror.
11 of the 19 September 11 hijackers hung out in Paterson (known colloquially as Paterstine). Head toward Jersey City and you can see where Muslim enemies of this country stood on rooftops and cheered the attacks on September 11. It’s also where the World Trade Center bombing mastermind and the Blind Sheikh who provided religious guidance for a proposed wave of Islamic terror operated.
Go south and in Elizabeth you can pass the First American Fried Chicken joint where the Rahami clan made life miserable for their American neighbors before one of their spawn began his bombing spree.
New Jersey is a map of Muslim terror plots because of its huge Muslim population.
Ahmad Khan Rahami came to America as the son of an Afghan refugee. He stabbed a man two years ago. His family was a local nuisance who cried “Islamophobia” at the least provocation. His brother was a Jihadi sympathizer and may have fled the country after assaulting a police officer. By the time Ahmad was done, he had wounded a police officer and 29 other people. If his plot had succeeded, he might have pulled off the largest Muslim terror atrocity in the country since September 11.
And of course Minnesota has similar issues
Minnesota has suffered from the presence of the largest Somali migrant population in the country. And so a state which used to be known for its Swedish and German immigrants instead became a recruiting ground for ISIS and Al-Shabab. Al-Shabab, which is aligned with Al Qaeda, attacked the Westgate mall in Kenya a few years ago. The Somali killers quizzed their victims to distinguish Muslims from non-Muslims.
Dahir Adan, the Somali Muslim migrant who invaded America from a refugee camp in Kenya, attempted to duplicate that attack, asking those he stabbed at the Crossroads Mall if they were Muslims.
Dozens of Somali migrants in America have joined Al-Shabab and ISIS. The only difference between Dahir Adan and them is that instead of getting on a plane back to his native Somalia to join the local Jihadists, he carried out his Jihad against the nighttime shoppers in a Macy’s.
The Crossroads attack was the tragic price paid by innocent people for Muslim refugee resettlement.
Muslim Somali migration dramatically increased under Obama, rising from 2,500 in 2008 to around 8,000 and 9,000 in the last few years. Somali settlers represent almost 1 percent of the population of Minnesota. Most of the “refugees” dumped in St. Cloud were Somalis migrants and Lutheran Social Services has taken the lead in inflicting Somalis on the unfortunate natives of St. Cloud.
From the very beginning of their arrival, the Somali colonists were a problem for the people of St. Cloud. They displaced American workers and clashed with the native population. In this decade, St. Cloud has become 10% Somali. The Crossroads attack was the inevitable result of that demographic growth.
What happened in New Jersey and Minnesota is the same thing that has been happening in Europe. Islamic terrorism is caused by Muslim migration. As the Muslim population grows, so does its terror.
Yes, just like Europe. well, Europe has it far worse, for now, because it has been more heavily engaged in allowing mass immigration of people who, again, hold very different values than the West does. Yes, Europe has it worse, for now. But Europe also grants us a preview what is to come. And that will be sooner rather than later given the Left thirst for more refugees, more Muslim refugees to be specific. The fact is the American Left is turning a blind eye to reality. Anyone who writes what Greenfield writes will be blasted as a bigot, as Islamophobic, or intolerant. Facts be damned, what we see in Europe be damned. We must have tolerance, or at least the Left’s perverse definition of tolerance in America. Even if it kills some, or many of us.
The fact is, there are numerous reasons for our government, yes both parties turning a blind eye to illegal immigration. Some are economic, some are, based on the Left’s version of fairness. But at the heart of both illegal immigration, and the influx of Muslim “refugees” is the Left’s hatred of American sovereignty. If the Left believes anything at all, it believes America must be broken and remade. America was founded on every value and principle the Left abhors. Individual liberty, natural rights, free markets are all despised by the Left, which is Collectivist in nature. So, anything that alters America is and will be supported by the Left.
Immigration, of course is not the problem. Immigration sand assimilation IS the problem. The Left, of course sees assimilation as a bad thing. After all, bringing in immigrants who share America’s Judeo-Christian values, and love of Individualism will not change America will it? Stressing assimilation is never going to really change what America is. Of course not. Your religion, or skin color do not matter so much if you share the basic American values of free markets, individual liberty, respect for the rights of others and self-determination. So, assimilation is undesirable according to the Left. Again, the Left is using immigration, both legal and illegal to change, yes fundamentally change America.
This issue, to me might be the most crucial reason we must never elect Hillary Clinton. We know what her immigration positions will be. Hillary is of the Left, she shares their values, and she will seek to do everything in her power to continue the Obama administration disastrous refugee and immigration policies. And yes, her policies will lead to more, not fewer terror attacks. If you do not believe me ask France how its immigration policies are working out. Or ask Germany, or Sweden. Of course, we must also consider how a President Hillary would respond to increased acts of Jihad. She would likely blame America, who else? And she would be certain to use such attacks to increase pressure for stricter gun laws, which would make us less safer still. She would likely lead a charge to punish “anti-Muslim” speech as well. Again, she, and the Left would eagerly use such a situation to further push their ultimate goal of altering America. Remember, the Left never allows a good crisis to, well you know the rest!

A car filled with gas cylinders was today found parked outside a synagogue in the south of France.
The suspicious vehicle was discovered by police officers after it was left near the Bar Yohaye synagogue in Marseille.
Dozens of worshippers were inside the building and were attending a service on Saturday morning.
The discovery comes just one week after a similar vehicle – also filled with gas cylinders – was left outside the famous Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.
A jihadi woman, 29, who is on a terror watch list, masterminded the plan and disappeared with her boyfriend, aged 34, last Sunday morning.
Her Peugeot 607 was found with its lights flashing in a no-parking zone in Paris’s Rue du Petit-Point, across the River Seine from Notre Dame, at 7.30am.
There were seven gas canisters inside – prompting fears of a terrorist attack on the ancient place of worship, which is high on a list of ISIS targets.
Three women were arrested and it was reported that they were allegedly planning to blow up the busy Gare du Lyon train station in Paris.
The price Europe is paying for mass immigration of people incompatible with Western values
SYDNEY — A French man shouting the Arabic phrase “Allahu akbar” stabbed a British woman to death and wounded two men in an attack at a hostel in northeast Australia, police said Wednesday.
The 29-year-old suspect did not have any known links to the Islamic State group and appeared to have acted alone, Queensland Police Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said. Police were trying to determine whether the man had been motivated by extremism, or something else.
Ah, motivation? Well listen to the killers battle cry
The man, a French national visiting Australia, shouted “Allahu akbar” — the Arabic phrase meaning “God is great” — both during the attack and while being arrested by police, Gollschewski said. He has not yet been charged, but police weren’t looking for any other suspects related to the incident.
I would suspect that might be a tiny clue, but, then again, I am not well versed in PC avoidance of reality
