Dr. Jacobs discusses Racist Arabs’ Black Slaves in Sudan and Mauritania — which raises the question: Where is Arab Apartheid Week on American campuses?
During a rally at the Al-Aqsa Mosque following Trump’s Jerusalem declaration, Palestinian cleric Sheikh Nidhal Siam issued a call to arms to the Muslim armies to arise in order to “liberate Jerusalem from the filth of the plundering Jews.” The crowds followed Sheikh Siam in his chants: “Oh Trump, you coward, you just wait. We will dig your grave by means of the Caliphate.” Footage from the rally was posted on the Internet on December 12.
ISIS has lost 98 percent of the territory it once held -- with half of that terror group's so-called "caliphate" having been recaptured since President Trump took office less than a year ago, U.S. military officials said Tuesday.
The massive gains come after years of "onerous" rules, when critics say the Obama administration “micromanaged” the war and shunned a more intensive air strategy that could have ended the conflict much sooner.
“The rules of engagement under the Obama administration were onerous. I mean what are we doing having individual target determination being conducted in the White House, which in some cases adds weeks and weeks,” said retired Air Force Lt. Gen. David Deptula, the former head of U.S. Air Force intelligence. “The limitations that were put on actually resulted in greater civilian casualties.”
But the senior director for counterterrorism in former President Barack Obama’s National Security Council pushed back on any criticism the former president didn’t do enough to defeat ISIS.
“This was a top priority from the early days of ISIS gaining the type of territorial safe haven in particular, there was recognition that safe havens for terrorist groups can mean terrorist plots that extend — not just into the region — but to Europe and conceivably into the United States,” said Joshua Geltzer, author of “US Counter-Terrorism Strategy and al-Qaeda: Signalling and the Terrorist World-View,” now a visiting professor at Georgetown Law School.
ISIS has called on lone wolves to target Christmas and New Years Eve celebrations in western countries and also threatened an attack on the Pope in a disturbing new propaganda video.
In the seven-minute clip an English speaking Islamic State fighter calls his 'brothers' to 'hunt down' non-believers during the festive holidays.
It features sickening mock-up footage of an explosion on the banks of the River Thames in London during the annual New Year's Eve party attended by tens of thousands of people.
The opening scenes feature footage of a large train derailing as well as showing a car ploughing through a crowd of people.

A group of ISIS terrorists launched a series of attacks on a group of children who were simply holding an interview with a foreign reporter.
Watch as the explosions send the children flying through the air, only to get up a few seconds later an attempt to run away as the camera man continues to record as he runs himself, pleading with the children to follow.
CNN’s Jake Tapper issued a searing criticism Thursday of many of the tyrannical nations that condemned the Trump administration’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as immoral.
The UN General Assembly voted 128 to 9 Thursday for a resolution demanding the U.S rescind a Dec. 6 declaration recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. But some of the countries condemning the U.S. have no room to talk on the issue, according to Tapper.
“Among the 128 countries who voted to condemn the U.S. on this issue were some countries with some rather questionable records of their own,” Tapper said on CNN’s “The Lead.” He targeted Venezuela, Syria, and Yemen for their history of ignoring human rights violations within their borders.
What has become of London as Muslim migrants continue to invade the country? Even Christmas has become overrun by the jihadists who are intent on stopping anything non-Islamic from being celebrated.
Take a look at this Christmas market in Leicester, UK. Were the only thing you see is Muslims, and the only thing you hear is Islamic music. This should certainly get you in the Christmas spirit.
The driver accused of mowing down pedestrians in the Melbourne CBD has been remanded in custody after a brief court appearance during which he covered his face with his hand.
Afghan refugee Saeed Noori, 32, of Heidelberg West appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Saturday in a grey T-shirt charged with 18 counts of attempted murder and one count of conduct endangering life.
The charges by the Homicide Squad follow an incident in which a white 4WD ploughed through pedestrians at the intersection of Flinders and Elizabeth streets on Thursday afternoon.
Noori held his head in his hands as he sat in the dock, while his emotional mother, who was his only supporter in court, tried to approach him but was told to stay seated.
She also tried to move to the front row of seats to be closer to her son, but was told she could not sit there.
Victoria Police Prosecutor Senior Constable Amitoj Singh told the court the accused man drove a vehicle through the pedestrian intersection of Flinders Street and Elizabeth Street "with the intention of killing or causing serious injury".
1. Around 4 p.m., shots were fired at a Capitol police officer at 3rd and Mulberry streets. The officer’s vehicle was hit. The officer was not hurt.
2. Shots were fired at a Pennsylvania State trooper at 4th and Market streets. The officer suffered a slight injury. She is expected to be OK.
3. At 17th and Mulberry streets, the gunman engages in a shootout with Harrisburg police and state police, and is killed. No officers are hurt.
Officials have stopped a man who they say was plotting a terror attack in San Francisco over the holidays. The 26-year-old reportedly stated that "Christmas was the perfect day" for a terror attack in San Francisco and "did not need an escape plan because he was ready to die."
The FBI arrested Everitt Aaron Jameson, who is a tow truck driver and lives in Modesto. According to a handwritten letter obtained by the FBI, Jameson also referred to himself as Abdallah adu Everitt ibn Gordon.
Jameson appeared in court Friday, but did not enter a plea.
The suspect reportedly picked the Pier 39 location because he "had been there before and knew it was a heavily crowded area." He added that it would be easy to "funnel" people into an area where he could inflict casualties.
The documents cite an FBI informant who said Jameson was inspired by the New York terror attack on Oct. 31, when a man drove into a crowd and killed eight people, and the deadly 2015 shooting in San Bernardino.
A driver of Afghan descent accused of plowing a white SUV into a crowd of pedestrians Thursday in Melbourne, Australia, injuring at least 14 people in a “deliberate act” has a history of drug use and mental illness and was known to police “on historical assault matters,” police said.
Two men, including the 32-year-old driver, were taken into custody, police said. The Afghan driver was an Australian citizen. Authorities said there was no evidence or intelligence to indicate that the incident was terror related, but they believe the driver carried out the act deliberately.
A Minneapolis woman who was stabbed 14 times while walking to her Uptown home said she is doing better and is focused on helping police catch her attacker.
Twenty-six-year-old Morgan Evenson said she was attacked Dec. 13 while walking home from her job at the Apple store on Hennepin Avenue.
Evenson told KSTP she struggled with her attacker at the corner of 32nd Street and Fremont Avenue and she considers herself lucky to be alive.
"It was horrifying, because I could feel something that felt like it was stinging me, but it was him stabbing me," she said. "Doctor's told me I had 14 wounds that needed stitches, including a lacerated kidney."
Evenson told KSTP her main concern now is getting better and helping police find whoever did this so he cannot do it again.
"I cannot imagine anyone attacking someone like that and as a woman it is especially frightening, but I knew I had to fight back and I want him to know I am OK and that he will be caught," Evenson said.
Evenson said she is extremely grateful to neighbors and passersby who heard her screaming and came to her aid which, she said, ultimately led to her attacker running away.
"It is very touching to see and hear from so many people who care," she said. "I am forever grateful to the people who came to may aid and without them I might not have survived.
A Virginia man who authorities say wanted to carry out a terrorist attack and tried to fund Islamic State group terrorists has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Prosecutors say 27-year-old Lionel Williams was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Norfolk. He had pleaded guilty in August to terrorism charges.
The case against Williams began after authorities say he pledged allegiance to terrorists on Facebook. Federal agents soon learned the Suffolk man owned an assault rifle.
Authorities say Williams told undercover FBI agents that he wanted to attack “hard targets” such as police officers. Court documents said he also gave informants $250, which he believed was going to fund the Islamic State in Iraq.
Another day another war erupts between rival Muslim sects at a refugee camp in the Greek island of Lesbos.
This is at least the 10th known time that rival factions have erupted into a full-scale war on the small island that is housing tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that are attempting to push their way into Europe in order to get free welfare programs.
If you thought the African migrants coming to European nations were coming because they were looking for jobs, think again! They are actually looking for free handouts because of pamphlets handed to them by the George Soros NGO groups that escorted them from Africa into Europe that told them that due to colonization they deserve reparations from white people.
Police in Melbourne, Australia have two men in custody after a car plowed into Christmas shoppers earlier today. That certainly sounds similar to other car-attack terrorist scenarios such as in Germany, the UK, and here in New York. However, authorities are downplaying the potential for a terrorist motive and now believe the second man may have nothing to do with the attack.
That’s a heck of a coincidence. And what about the second man arrested? He happened to be filming the attack with three knives in his bag. In a March terror attack in London, the assailant first used a car and then began attacking pedestrians with a knife, killing a police officer before being shot to death by other officers. That attack took place on the one-year anniversary of suicide bombings in Brussels; today’s attack is just two days off from the one-year anniversary of the truck attack on the Berlin Christmas market that killed twelve people and injured dozens of others.
That’s a lot of coincidences. It’s too early to jump to a conclusion of terrorism, but it’s also too early to entirely rule it out either. We’ll update this post with further developments as necessary.
Steven Handoko admits it wasn’t his most dignified moment. Naked as the day he was born, the bookish 25-year-old had been invited on stage by one of the strippers hired for a party at the Atlantis Gym.
That hardly qualified as outrageous behavior in the red-light district of Kelapa Gading in North Jakarta, where the Atlantis was located. Nearby were plenty of venues with suggestive names like the Playboy Sensation, massage parlors for straight men. The Atlantis was a gay sauna in a conservative country, but given the generally live-and-let-live milieu of the Indonesian capital’s night life, Mr. Handoko felt safe, if a little embarrassed.
But he wasn’t. Soon after he took the stage, the police stormed the premises. Officers herded naked, cowering men into the middle of the room and began taking photos, some of which — including one of Mr. Handoko — appeared on Indonesian social media within hours. He and 140 other men were taken away.
A man convicted of leading an Islamic State-inspired plot to behead a conservative blogger who upset Muslims when she organized a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest was sentenced on Tuesday to 28 years in prison.
David Wright sobbed as he apologized to blogger Pamela Geller, law enforcement and his family and denounced the terror group, whose horrific acts he used to celebrate online.
“Nothing I can say can fix the hurt I caused,” the 28-year-old Wright said. “I sincerely hope that I can be given the opportunity to help others avoid the mistakes I made.”
Wright was convicted in October of conspiracy to provide material support to the Islamic State group, conspiracy to commit acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries and other crimes.
Prosecutors had sought a life sentence for Wright, arguing it would send a strong message to others considering terror attacks in the U.S. But Judge William G. Young said he was uncomfortable with sending Wright away for life, telling him: “You are not a monster, yet you embraced a monstrous evil.”
Prosecutors portrayed Wright, who’s from Everett, just north of Boston, as the ringleader of the conspiracy to kill Geller, who has spearheaded scores of events across the nation to decry Islamic extremism. The cartoon contest Geller organized in Garland, Texas, in 2015 ended in gunfire, with two Muslim gunmen shot to death by police.
If you thought for one second that Germans stand a chance on the subway stations when they are being attacked by Muslim migrants, think again!
This is a daily occurrence in most of the major cities around Germany. Muslim migrants can be seen flooding the subway stations and engaging in chants that are both pro-Islam as well is pro-Palestinian.
Residents of the Swedish city of Oskarshamn will now have the option to be accompanied by armed police officers while out jogging.
Oskarshamn police inspector Peter Karlsson said the programme was designed to ease the insecurities of those who wish to go jogging after dark. Karlsson, who came up with the idea for the programme, said police would form jogging groups and all those who were interested in joining the officers were welcome, SVT reports.
“We will adjust the pace entirely to those who come,” Karlsson said, noting the officers would jog as well as walk with residents who wanted to join.
Karlsson said that he had heard of many residents feeling insecure in the city: “It does not happen so much here, but people are influenced by events around the world and feel unsafe when it’s dark.”
Police clashed with anti-fascist protesters in Modena on Friday after a demonstration against the arrival of anti-migrant far-right activists turned violent.
Saudi Arabia has intercepted a rocket fired by rebel Houthi fighters in Yemen, who declared a “new chapter” in its confrontation with the kingdom.
The Volcano 2-H ballistic missiles was aimed at the al-Yamma royal palace in Riyadh, but was stopped by Saudi’s air defences.
Reporters heard a blast and saw a plume of smoke rising above the Saudi capital near the palace, where King Salman chairs weekly government meetings and hosts foreign dignitaries.
It was the second time in as many months that a rebel projectile had reached as far inside the kingdom as Riyadh, and while audacious, neither caused any real damage.
In a televised address, rebel leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi said the range of missiles in the Houthi arsenal was being extended. "Our long hand will reach other places, God willing," he said.
"As long as you continue to target Sanaa we will strike Riyadh and Abu Dhabi," he said, referring to the seat of government of the United Arab Emirates, a key member of the coalition.
Earlier this month, the Houthis claimed they fired a missile at an under-construction nuclear plant in the Emirates. The UAE denied the claim.
The rebels claimed Saudi palaces, military and oil facilities were all within range of such missiles fired from Yemen.
CBS News has learned of a shocking link between a deadly drug cartel shootout with Mexican police last week and a controversial case in the U.S. The link is one of the grenades used in the violent fight, which killed three policemen and four cartel members and was captured on video by residents in the area.
According to a Justice Department "Significant Incident Report" filed Tuesday and obtained by CBS News, evidence connects one of the grenades to Jean Baptiste Kingery, an alleged firearms trafficker U.S. officials allowed to operate for years without arresting despite significant evidence that he was moving massive amounts of grenade parts and ammunition to Mexico's ruthless drug cartels.
Here is an intense view of what it looks like during the fog of war.
Watch as FSA forces battle both Isis terrorists as well as Syrian and Russian military forces that continue to do bombing runs on areas controlled by the anti-Assad Forces.
The Khan Shaykhun chemical attack took place on 4 April 2017 on the town of Khan Shaykhun in the Idlib Governorate of Syria. The town was reported to have been struck by an airstrike by assad regime forces followed by massive civilian chemical poisoning.
Russia has once again been accused of using weapons that have been banned under the Geneva conventions while orchestrating bombing runs in Syria against opposition forces.
This video is said that contain proof that Russia is still using phosphorus weapons which are banned under the Geneva conventions.
Horrifying CCTV shows two suicide bombers forcing their way past police during an attack on a Christian church in Pakistan.
At least nine people were killed and 45 injured after two ISIS fighters managed to get inside.
Several children caught up in the carnage were forced to cower behind their parents during the horror ordeal.
Militants stormed the Methodist church, which was packed with worshippers at the time, in the city of Quetta, some 65km (40 miles) from the Afghan border.
CCTV shows one of the attackers walking past the church and suddenly pull a machine gun out from under his top before he races towards the entrance.
He fights with a guard before e and an accomplice manage to force their way inside after he leaps over the gate.
Police guards then charged at the men as they opened fire while heading towards the church where 400 worshippers were gathered.
One of the men then detonated his bomb vest and the other was stopped in a gunfight with police.
Two more attackers fled and a search operation is under way following the attack yesterday, according to reports.
Sarfraz Bugti, the Balochistan region's home minister, said if the men got any further, there could have been hundreds of casualties.
Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack.
Harrowing footage from inside the church shows a lone Christmas tree standing amid pools of blood, smashed pews and shattered windows at the Bethel Memorial Methodist Church in Quetta City.
The video shows scenes of devastation as the blast tore through the interior of the building, splintering furniture and smashing much of front of the church.
The transept lies in ruins as shredded curtains hang near the alter.
Instruments used in the service are scattered across the floor and overturned pews lie strewn through the nave.
Provincial police chief Moazzam Jah said: "There were nearly 400 people inside the church, but the attackers couldn't get inside the services.
"We killed one of them, and the other one exploded himself after police wounded him."
Jah said the church had guards because Christian places of worship are often targeted by Islamist extremist groups.
Baluchistan has long been the scene of an insurgency by separatists fighting against the state to demand more of a share of the region's gas and minerals.
They also accuse the central government of discrimination.
The Taliban, Sunni Islamist militants and sectarian groups inked to al Qaeda and the so-called Islamic State group also operate in the strategically important region, which borders Iran and Afghanistan.
The violence has fuelled concern about security for projects in the $57 billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor, a transport and energy link planned to run from western China to Pakistan's southern deep-water port of Gwadar.
Pakistan has launched several military offensives over the last decade against the Islamist militants who want to install their own harsh brand of religion.
Although beaten and dispersed, the militants have shown resilience to launch spectacular attacks.
Early this month, three Taliban suicide bombers attacked an agriculture college in northwestern Peshawar city, killing eight students and a guard.
Two suicide bombers attacked a packed Christian church in southwestern Pakistan on Sunday, killing at least eight people and wounding up to 45.
In harrowing footage from inside the church a lone Christmas tree stands amid pools of blood, smashed pews and shattered windows at the Bethel Memorial Methodist Church in Quetta City.
After exchanging fire with police and soldiers, one of the attackers detonated a suicide bomb vest inside the church while police killed the other attacker, officials said.
Israeli officers dressed as Palestinians, some with Palestinian flags, infiltrated a demonstration in the West Bank, before opening fire with pistols and throwing smoke grenades at the protesters.
Some 400 Palestinians took part in a rally in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Wednesday, according to Israeli media. AFP news agency reporters, who also managed to film the events, cited lower numbers, saying up to 150 Palestinians were protesting near the Beit El military checkpoint.
The demonstrators were throwing stones at Israeli security forces and burning tires to protest Washington's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. At one point, several men among them, wearing traditional Arabic kufiya scarves and a Palestinian flag wrapped around the head, revealed themselves as Israeli law enforcement.
Having pulled out pistols and thrown smoke grenades, they captured several Palestinian protesters. In a Ruptly video, they can be seen donning balaclavas labeled "Police" as the remaining protesters scatter.
A Palestinian with a fake suicide belt stabbed an Israeli officer in the upper torso. The Palestinian attacker, Mohammed Aqal, was shot and later died. The officer was in moderate condition. The stabber managed to get to the troops from behind after he pretended to be part of a press team nearby. The soldiers shot him in the legs, but when they noticed the suicide belt, they kept shooting him while he was on the ground. He was taken to Palestinian hospital where he passed away. This was part of another Palestinian (Fri)day of Rage, in reaction to Trump recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel last week.
This is the terrifying moment loud gunshots are heard as armed police shot a man armed with a knife at a busy airport.
Video shows four military police officers moving towards a Starbucks in an empty terminal after the alarm was raised at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam.
Authorities cleared the terminal although they are now reporting that the situation is safe.
According to De Telegraaf, the assailant had entered the airport police station with a knife, where one visitor who was present was immediately taken to safety.
He was then shot in the leg and taken to hospital. The suspect is reported to be a 29-year-old man from The Hague
A police spokesman said the incident is not believed to be terror related and it is being investigated further.
