A mosque teacher used a chilling image of Prince George, his school and Isis terrorists to illustrate his plan to kill the young royal. Husnain Rashid, 32, admitted urging jihadis to kill the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s son, as well as other children, by poisoning their ice cream, the Daily Mail reported .
The United States “openly supports” the militants of PYD and YPG, which are the wings of the terrorist organization PKK in Syria, Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said, the Turkish media reported May 31.
The FM noted that instead of fighting terrorists in Syria together with Turkey, the United States preferred cooperation with them.
“A state claiming that it is fighting with terrorists, can’t support them,” said Cavusoglu.
The FM also noted that Turkey is the only country that is fighting terrorists in Syria.
Earlier, Turkey’s president also accused the US of providing military support to the PYD and YPG terrorists in Syria
On January 20, the Turkish armed forces launched the Operation Olive Branch together with the Free Syrian Army in the Syrian region of Afrin.

It began with an attempt by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) to plant an improvised explosive device on the security fence separating Israel from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, and ended with a near full-scale conflagration on a scale not seen since the summer of 2014. Tensions for the time being have tapered off but the recent fighting demonstrates why the Israeli Army (IDF) maintains a constant state of readiness along its volatile borders.
On Sunday, security forces monitoring the Gaza border detected an object attached to the border fence. Upon closer examination, it turned out to be a bolt cutter of the type used by Palestinian rioters to breach the fence in weeks prior. A remote controlled robot was sent in to inspect and remove the object utilizing a long cord. During the course of removal, the bolt cutter exploded. Fortunately, no one was injured but the situation could have just as easily resulted in casualties.
PIJ terrorists who planted the IED were then spotted manning a nearby observation post. An Israeli Merkava IV tank fired at the OP instantly killing two PIJ operatives. A third was mortally wounded and died soon after. Islamic Jihad swore vengeance.
Two days later, southern Israeli border towns and communities came under intense indiscriminate rocket and mortar bombardment. A kindergarten was hit but fortunately, the children had not yet arrived. Over the course of 22 hours, Hamas and PIJ fired over 100 rockets and mortars, 25 of which were shot down by Israel’s anti-rocket defense system, Iron Dome. According to military sources, the system also succeeded in intercepting incoming mortar rounds, a first in the annals of warfare. There were no fatalities but there was some property damage and three IDF soldiers were wounded, two lightly and one moderately. A civilian was also lightly injured.
The unprovoked attacks inevitably drew Israeli retaliatory strikes which came in two waves. Some 65 Hamas and PIJ positions were targeted including a U-shaped, two-kilometer long tunnel that extended into both Egypt and Israel. It was to be used for smuggling contraband as well as for facilitating terrorist attacks. Rocket and weapons storage facilities were also hit and destroyed. A Hamas naval armory which the army said contained “advanced, unmanned submarine vessels, capable of maritime infiltration and carrying out maritime terror attacks,” was hit and destroyed as well.
Israel informed Hamas through intermediaries that if it continued its attacks, the IDF was prepared to conduct a large-scale military operation, similar to those conducted in 2009 and 2014. Hamas, still smarting from the defeats of 2009 and 2014, understood that Israel meant business and ordered its operatives as well as the PIJ to cease fire. The question is how long will the cease fire hold? The answer to that is anyone’s guess.
Nevertheless, the recent round of fighting highlighted several interesting takeaways. First, the discovery of a Hamas tunnel in Egypt is likely to further strain relations between Egypt and Hamas. Egypt has accused Hamas of aiding Islamist terrorists in northern Sinai and the revelation of a Hamas-dug tunnel in Egypt further erodes Hamas’s credibility in the eyes of the Egyptian government.
Second, the Iron Dome system continues to impress. In 2014, Iron Dome succeeded in shooting down rockets but had yet been incapable of downing mortar rounds. In 2014, a mortar round fired from a Gaza school killed a four-year-old Israeli boy named Daniel Tragerman, who lived in a kibbutz near the border. Modifications and software upgrades to Iron Dome have enabled the system to now have the ability to intercept incoming mortar rounds. This is an unprecedented development in warfare.
Third, during the Obama years, Israel received equivocal support at best, when it carried out anti-terror operations against Islamist terrorist groups. Europe, taking cue from Obama, was downright hostile. But in the latest round, Israel received unequivocal political support from both the United States and the European Union, while Hamas was roundly condemned. This positive development signals a seismic shift in favor of Israel and may have been a contributing factor in Hamas’s decision to call it quits. Hamas recognizes that in any confrontation with Israel, it will lose both militarily and politically, whereas in the past, it at least had a chance of scoring political points.
Fourth, the malevolent role of the Iranian regime in stoking the recent round of violence cannot be overlooked. Iran has its fingerprints all over this one. Hamas and Islamic Jihad leaders have readily and publicly acknowledged that they receive aid in the form of cash, training and weapons from Iran. For years, the Iranians have been cultivating proxies to do their bidding and these Palestinian groups are willing participants. Iran has recently been on the receiving end of some sharp blows from Israel, and the mullahs were looking for a way to strike back but without engaging Israel in direct confrontation. Gaza appeared to be Iran’s venue of choice. Nevertheless, despite Hamas’s dependence on Iran, the group still exercises some independent thought, and they wisely cried uncle for they recognized that this was a battle they had no hope of winning.
Islamic terrorists have massacred at least 41 people and injured 102 in the first four days of the holiest month for Muslims, Ramadan, a time when some adherents of Islam believe jihad and martyrdom to be especially heroic and rewarded in paradise.
ISIS threatens to behead Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in sick boast ahead of World Cup in Russia ISIS has threatened to behead star footballers Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo at the World Cup in Russia. The Islamic extremists have already made several threats about the tournament, which kicks off next month, but the latest propaganda is the sickest so far. The Islamic State is increasing its calls for 'lone attackers' to strike as the terror group loses ground in Syria and Iraq. Barcelona star Messi has been pictured as part of ISIS threats before but now terrorists have vowed…
Gina Haspel is the new director of the CIA, after getting confirmed in the US Senate. Several Democrats crossed the aisle and gave her the green light, despite objecting to Haspel’s role in the CIA’s torture program. The final vote was 53 in favor and 45 opposed. Haspel’s road to the confirmation was intense, with the Senate Intelligence Committee grilling her about running a controversial black site in Thailand during the era of extraordinary renditions and enhanced interrogation of suspected terrorists under President George W. Bush. She was also asked about a her role in destroying some 90 tapes evidencing torture of detainees.
On February 4, two days before a UN Security Council meeting on chemical weapon issues, a Syrian army helicopter flew into Idleb governorate which is held by al-Qaeda. Escaping the quite effective air defenses of the terrorists it dropped two chlorine gas cylinders near a militarily irrelevant agricultural warehouse 40 kilometers away from the front line of the war. Eleven men of fighting age who are living in the al-Qaeda ruled territory were allegedly impacted by the released gas but none of them was seriously hurt. The implausible story above is the base of a recent report by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. All ‘evidence’ for the tale comes from organizations which tightly cooperated with al-Qaeda and other militant ‘rebel’ groups in Syria and are paid by ‘western’ governments opposed to Syria. The implausible story is repeated in the ‘western’ press without any journalistic skepticism. The British Guardian writes: The fact-finding mission by the OPCW on the Saraqeb attack determined that “chlorine was released from cylinders by mechanical impact on 4 February,” it said on Wednesday. The team’s conclusions were based on finding two cylinders that were determined as previously containing chlorine. … The incident is by no means the worst chemical weapons attack during the seven-year civil war, but it led to 11 people being treated for breathing difficulties. Western observers said the use of helicopters in the attack suggested Syrian government involvement since the opposition did not have access to helicopters. Saraqib in Idleb governorate has been in the hands of the Syrian ‘opposition’ since late 2012/early 2013. In April 2013 Syrian ‘rebel’ forces alleged that a chemical attack with Sarin took place in Saraqib. However only one person died, allegedly from of Sarin intoxication, while no Sarin traces were found on two other affected persons.
Congressional efforts to update the president’s powers to fight terrorists are running into resistance from Democrats worried about the administration’s hawkish turn. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., speaks to reporters as he arrives for the weekly Senate …
Good Lord. We suppose this was inevitable, but still.
This morning, Dana Loesch pointed out the Left’s warped priorities when it comes to criminals and terrorists:
MS-13 are good guys, Hamas did nothing wrong, but law-abiding gun owners are “terrorists.” Unreal.

And actor-comedian Michael Ian Black — who can never resist an opportunity to call the NRA terrorists — chimed in a few hours later:
If we are ranking terrorist organizations by how much blood they have on their hands, the NRA comes out on top. https://t.co/fA2u5glA8q
