    Three would-be jihadists who dubbed themselves the Three Musketeers have been jailed for life for plotting an attack on a police or military target.

    Naweed Ali, 29, Khobaib Hussain, 25, both of Sparkhill, Birmingham, and Mohibur Rahman, 33, of Stoke-on-Trent, had planned a "mass casualty attack".

    Tahir Aziz, 38, also from Stoke, was given a life term for the same crime.

    PAKISTAN – Christian bicycle mechanic arrested for “blasphemy” after refusing Muslim “holy man” discount

    Ashfaq Masih, a Christian bicycle mechanic from Lahore, has been arrested by police after being accused of “blasphemy”. After Ashfaq had repaired a local Muslim man’s bicycle, the man demanded a discount, claiming that he was a Sadhu – a term for a “holy man”, usually associated with Hinduism. Ashfaq refused and said that he did not follow anyone other than Jesus. A crowd gathered and one of them accused Ashfaq of “blasphemy” and called police, who arrested Ashfaq and officially registered a case against him on 15 June.

    In May, a Christian from Rawalpindi was sentenced to life imprisonment for “blasphemy”, despite lawyers stating that there was “no concrete evidence” against him. This latest arrest appears to be another case of Pakistan’s infamous “blasphemy” laws being used to settle personal grudges against the vulnerable Christian minority.

    Egyptian forces on Friday launched air strikes on six jihadist training camps in Libya in retaliation for an attack on Coptic Christians in Egypt earlier in the day in which at least 28 people were killed, many of them children.

    "Egypt will not hesitate in striking terror camps anywhere, either inside (the country) or outside it," Sisi added. According to state TV, a total of six targets were hit.

    LAHORE: A prosecutor has reportedly asked members of a minority community facing trial in an anti-terrorism court over lynching of two men that he ‘can guarantee their acquittal’ if they renounce their faith and embrace Islam, rights activists claim.

    Some 42 Christians have been charged with lynching the two men after twin suicide blasts targeting a Sunday Mass in two churches in the Christian neighbourhood of Youhanabad in Lahore on March 15, 2015.

    The Muslim Brotherhood: Peddling Sharia as Social Justice

    by Judith Bergman
    March 30, 2017 at 5:00 am

    • Human Rights Watch, an organization that is supposed to look out for victims of human rights abuses, not abusers of human rights is begging US decision makers not to designate the Muslim Brotherhood -- which, if it had its way, would take away everyone's human rights and substitute them with sharia law -- a foreign terrorist organization.

    • "Allah is our objective; the Prophet is our leader; the Quran is our law; Jihad is our way; dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope". — Muslim Brotherhood motto.

    • Conveniently, Hamas -- which according to article two of its charter, is "one of the wings of Moslem Brotherhood in Palestine" -- is, it seems, working on a new charter. The new charter would declare that Hamas is not a part of the Muslim Brotherhood, despite its always having been so. That way, is the Muslim Brotherhood's "narrative" of newfound "nonviolence" suddenly supposed to become believable?

    Nigeria Orders Christian Leaders to Cancel Day of Mourning, Prayer for Killed Christians

    Journalists, clergymen theatened for speaking out on violence.

    By Our Nigeria Correspondent

    JOSNigeria, March 17, 2017 (Morning Star News) – Having warned journalists and Christian leaders to stop speaking out about anti-Christian violence in Nigeria, the government this week also ordered the cancellation of a day of prayer and national mourning for slain Christians, sources said.

    Christian leaders here said the day of prayer and mourning planned in churches across the country and abroad on Sunday (March 19) in memory of Christians killed by Muslim Fulani herdsmen and others has been suspended on orders of the Nigerian government and security agencies. They said they have been under pressure and threat by government and security officials to cancel the program on claims that it would breach national security.

    The Rev. Dr. Musa Asake, general secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), said in a statement on Wednesday (March 15) that leaders had no other option than to suspend the program indefinitely.

    “CAN wishes to inform all Christians, both at home and abroad, that based on credible reports of concern, it has decided to suspend the Christian Day of Mourning formerly scheduled to take place globally on Sunday 19th March, 2017,” Asake said in the statement. “We took cognizance of the preparations that various Christian groups have made to participate in the program, which was designed, in all honesty and sincerity, to mourn the death of thousands of Christians murdered by religious insurgents.”

    The suspension of the program was due to “misunderstanding, misinterpretation and subsequent security concerns,” he said. “All Nigerian Christian assemblies are urged to have a normal Sunday worship on 19th March, 2017 but suspend any action on the Day of Mourning.”

    Christians should be careful and watchful, the statement added.

    “In the meantime, we are all urged to remain steadfast and resolute in the grace of God that Nigeria shall overcome the present distress and peace shall prevail all over the nation,” the statement concluded.

    Security agencies and the Nigerian government have recently threatened Christian leaders for speaking out against incessant attacks by Muslim Fulani herdsmen on Christian communities in central states such as Benue, Plateau, Kaduna, Nasarawa, and Niger, and by the Islamic extremist Boko Haram group in northeastern Nigeria.

    Earlier this month CAN President Samson Olasupo Ayokunle told the body’s National Executive Committee the failure of security agencies to arrest and charge the assailants in southern Kaduna has allowed the crisis to continue. He decried that killings have continued despite curfews, police presence and other security agencies in the area.

    “Recently, a Redeemed Christian Church of God building was burnt down in Dei- Dei, here in Abuja, very early in the morning,” he reportedly said. “What shall we do to these continuous provocations without any visible action by the law enforcement agents?”

    On March 6, advocacy group Jubilee Campaign noted at a press conference in Geneva, Switzerland that a rising Fulani militancy has succeeded Boko Haram as the foremost violent threat in Nigeria. At a press conference at the 34th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, panelists said the alarming increase in militarization in north and central Nigeria has resulted in the death of 4,000 people in the past three years.

    “The rising militia is made up of members of the Fulani ethnic tribe. Therefore, they are referred to as the Fulani militants,” Jubilee said in a March 8 statement. “These militants have launched systematic attacks on farming communities that are predominately Christian. During their attacks, they kill villagers, raze homes, and destroy farmland. Many times, they then move in to occupy the attacked village.”

    Mark Jacob, former attorney general of Kaduna state, said at the event that Nigeria needed outside help because the government has proven unwilling to protect its citizens.

    “We keep complaining, the government appears to be uninterested in what we are saying, and that is why one of the reasons we are here is to ask for intervention,” Jacob said.

    The Imam, Suleiman Anwar Bengharsa, openly endorsed ISIS on facebook, has allegedly radicalized at least two would-be American terrorists, and is known to have sent large sums of money to active terrorist zones. At every turn, Bengharsa has pushed the First Amendment to its limit and shrouds his activities in secrecy to avoid prosecution.

    JIHADIST STABS 8 IN MINNESOTA MALL AFTER ASKING IF THEY'RE MUSLIM

    Why does Minnesota have a Muslim terrorism problem? Because large numbers of Somalis were dumped there. So now we have an attack in Minnesota that looks like a smaller scale version of the Westgate attack in Kenya carried out by Somali Muslims. Al-Shabaab, the Jihadist group responsible for that attack, is popular with Somali Muslim settlers in Minnesota. 

    And, like the Westgate attack, the Muslim terrorist following his racist supremacist creed, asked people if they were Muslim before attacking them.

    Bosnia has reportedly become a hub for radical Islamists. They recruit fighters, promote jihad and preach a fundamentalist interpretation of Islam — just across the border from the European Union, according to a report published by Germany’s Spiegel online.

    As many as 300 Islamist radicals have left Bosnia-Herzegovina to join Islamic State or al-Qaeda in Syria or Iraq. Two of the most wanted terrorists in the world are among them: Bajro Ikanovic, for many years the commander of the largest IS training camp in northern Syria; and Nusret Imamovic, a leading member of the Nusra Front in Syria, a group tied to al-Qaeda.

    Black market supply and demand: The flow of illegal weapons from the Western Balkans to Islamist militants in Western Europe

    Adrian Shtuni - IHS Jane's Terrorism & Insurgency Monitor

    • According to European counter-terrorism authorities, some of the weapons and ammunitions used by Islamist militants in terrorist attacks in Western Europe since 2010 originated from the Western Balkans, particularly from Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

    • The routes used to smuggle the weapons from the Western Balkans are similar to those established and operated by organised crime syndicates for drugs and people trafficking, and smuggling migrants.

    • Although Western European Islamist militants will continue to procure firearms through traditional contacts with organised crime elements, the emergence of dedicated weapons-smuggling channels run by Balkan militants for ideological, rather than financial, motives remain possible.
