ISIS Killer Identified as Computer Science Major Mohammed Emwazi

Don’t tell @MarieHarf this, but middle-class Muslims from England with university degrees become radical Islamic terrorists: The world knows him as “Jihadi John,” the masked man with a British accent who has beheaded several hostages held by the Islamic State and who taunts audiences in videos circulated widely online. But his real name, according to […]

Hey, Remember When CNN Was ‘The Most Trusted Name in News’?

That was a long time ago: Supporters of the Islamic State have taken to Twitter to mock claims the terrorist organisation is luring women into its fold using kittens and Nutella. The original claim was made by CNN’s Newsroom anchor Carol Costello on Wednesday during a piece on how ISIS twists and manipulates its image […]

‘The True Peaceful Nature of Islam’

France and Terror

FRANCE RALLIES; SUSPECT BOUMEDIENE FLEES TO SYRIA

Hundreds of thousands are rallying today in the streets of Paris in the wake of Wednesday’s Charlie Hebdo massacre: Dignitaries and world leaders are expected to join hundreds of thousands of people in France on Sunday in what government officials are calling a “unity rally” in defiance of a terrorism spree that claimed 17 lives.
