Headline:   Israel plans high tech fence along Jordan border to degrade ISIL infiltration

Israel has prioritized a project to build a high tech barrier along the border with Jordan. Officials said the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was seeking resources to complete a barrier of some 400 kilometers that would block infiltration from the Hashemite kingdom. They said the barrier, equipped with thermal cameras, motion detectors and unmanned aerial vehicles, would be established in stages. “The first thing we must do is build a fence in the east,” Netanyahu said. “While the fence doesn’t stop all infiltrations, gun and rocket fire though it or over it, or the digging of tunnels, it dramatically narrows down infiltration to Israel.” In an address to the Institute of National Security Studies on June 29, Netanyahu said the Jordan barrier was vital amid the advance of Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. The prime minister raised the prospect of ISIL infiltration from neighboring Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.

Headline:  Israel fortifying northern border, Lebanese report

The Israel Defense Forces is fortifying positions along the border with Lebanon, according to a Lebanese news report. It “cemented and fortified the military posts along the border with Lebanon facing the Adaisseh-Kfarkila road,” the Lebanese National News Agency reported Friday, according to a translation by Lebanese news site Naharnet. “A crane placed cement blocks and walls on the makeshift military road separating the electronic fence and the groves of the Metulla settlement.” The NNA asserted that the IDF was erecting the fortifications in order to conceal troop movements. It also reported that Israel had stationed tanks and armored personnel carriers along Shebaa Farms and the Golan Heights overlooking the road leading from Syria and Lebanon. The report came just days after Major-General Luciano Portolano, the new head of mission at the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, said the northern border “is generally calm,” according to a UNIFIL statement. However, Portolano’s assessment appeared to run counter to that of a senior IDF officer who told Hebrew-language media that the situation could easily deteriorate.

Headline:  Israel to re-authorize security barrier route near West Bank historical site

The government on Sunday is set to debate the re-authorization of 45 kilometers of the West Bank security barrier’s route in the Battir region of Gush Etzion, which is a World Heritage site. It is reviewing the barrier’s route at the request of the High Court of Justice, but the move forces the government to make a public stand on a contentious diplomatic issue that has been mostly dormant in the last few years: the West Bank security barrier. In 2004, the International Court of Justice at the Hague issued a non-binding advisory opinion, explaining that construction of the barrier over the pre-1967 lines was illegal. Israel designed the barrier to prevent the type of suicide bombings that killed around 1000 thousand people during the second intifada. It has refused to heed the ICJ opinion, which it believes is legally flawed and the result of a biased process. But the pace of construction has been slow and according to the United Nations, 12 years after the barrier’s inception, only 62% of its 712 kilometer route has been completed.

Headline:  Hamas announcement confirm renewed tunnel operations against Israel

Less than a month after its 50-day war, Hamas acknowledged renewed tunnel operations against Israel. Hamas said it oversaw attack tunnel operations in the Gaza Strip. On Sept. 18, Hamas reported the death of a fighter in a tunnel accident. “The Izzedin Kassam Brigades of Hamas’ military wing announces the martyrdom of Ahmed Riyad Al Hadad on Thursday evening while working in a resistance tunnel,” Hamas said. Hamas provided no details of the death of the 21-year-old Hadad. The statement also did not identify Hadad’s position in Hamas. This marked the first Hamas statement to confirm the resumption of tunnel operations.

Headline:  Hamas-Backing Qatar Contracts Top Flight Public Relations Firm to Improve Ties With US

Qatar shocked many political circles on Sept. 12 when it asked several Muslim Brotherhood leaders to leave Doha in an effort to meet conditions for restoring ties with its Gulf neighbors. On Sept. 14, leaks emerged that Qatar might also apply the decision to leaders of Hamas — who have been residing in Doha since leaving Syria in mid-2012 — in response to international pressure. Speaking to Al-Monitor, Ismail Radwan, a senior Hamas leader and former Palestinian minister of Awqaf, who has been alternately residing in Beirut and Doha, denied that Doha has asked Hamas to leave its territory. He said, “The leaks [are] a desperate attempt to destabilize the ties between both sides, which are at their best.” Ahmed Yousef, a former political adviser to former Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, told Al-Monitor, “Hamas did not receive any request to reduce its presence in Doha, and has not been under any pressure in this regard, particularly since Hamas political leader Khaled Meshaal has had close ties and mutual understanding and respect with the ruling family in Qatar for more than 20 years. Hamas and Qatar have strong political relations and understandings on the policies toward the successive developments in the region. Qatar sought to promote its role in the region when it hosted Hamas. Its decision to dismiss the Brotherhood leaders does not apply to the Hamas leaders.”

A “solution to the conflict” between the Israelis and Palestinians will be put to the UN Security Council, French President Francois Hollande said Friday after meeting Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Paris. “We will have a resolution, to be presented to the Security Council, that will say very clearly what we expect from the (peace) process and what the solution to the conflict must be,” Hollande told reporters in a joint news conference with Abbas. The French president said that stop-start negotiations had gone on “too long” and “there is a perception that there will never be a solution to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, even though we know the outlines” of a possible deal.

Headline:   Militants kill two Lebanese soldiers near border with Syria

At least two Lebanese soldiers have been killed and several others injured in a series of violent clashes with foreign-backed militants near the border with Syria. Fierce clashes took place with al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front in the northeastern Lebanese region of Arsal on Friday, but some sources say the Lebanese soldiers were killed by a rocket-propelled grenade that targeted an army patrol unit in the volatile region. The al-Nusra Front and Takfiri ISIL militants have been fighting with the Lebanese army near Arsal. The army recently sent reinforcements to the area.

Headline:  Nusra Front executes captive Lebanese soldier: security source

Abducted Army soldier Mohammad Maarouf Hammieh was killed at the hands of Nusra Front militants Friday, a Lebanese security source and a source who is in indirect contact with the Nusra Front told The Daily Star. The execution marks the first killing of a Nusra Front captive after over 30 military and security hostages were captured during a militant attack on the northeastern town of Arsal last month. The sources confirmed that Hammieh, who hails from the Baalbek village of Taraya in the Bekaa Valley, was shot to death by the militants. “Mohammad Hamieh is the first victim of the intransigence of the Lebanese Army, which has become a puppet [in the hands of Hezbollah]” a Nusra-affiliated Twitter page said Friday. The Nusra Front and ISIS are still holding at least 22 policemen and soldiers captive. ISIS has so far beheaded two soldiers, while Nusra killed its first soldier Friday.

Fighters from the predominantly-Sunni Bab al-Tabbaneh, which backs the Syrian opposition, and the Alawite Jabal Mohsen, which enjoys close ties with the Syrian government, have engaged in over 20 rounds of fighting since the start of the crisis in Syria. The source said that the attack was likely a symbolic assault on the Army that was driven by unrest in the northeastern town of Arsal.

Headline:  Egypt militants behead man in restive Sinai

An al-Qaida-inspired militant group in Egypt beheaded a man in the restive Sinai Peninsula for allegedly conspiring with Israel, security officials said Friday. Militants from the Ansar Beit al-Maqdis group dumped the beheaded body on the road in the town of Sheikh Zuweyid, and continue to hold several other men for the same reason, according to the officials. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief reporters. Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, whose name means Champions of Jerusalem in Arabic, posted an online video in August showing the beheading of four men in Sinai. The men in the video said they helped Israel target the group’s members with drone strikes in exchange for money. The group claimed most of the major militant attacks that have hit Egypt since the 2013 ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.

Dozens of protests spread across the country on the first Friday since the commemoration President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi’s first 100 days in power. “Protests began on Friday morning in most of Egypt’s towns and villages while larger demonstrations took off from mosques after Friday prayers,” said Islam Tawfiq, one of the demonstrators in Cairo. Demonstrators’ chants are coloured with a range of demands and condemnations: down with the military, freedom for political prisoners, a change in the deteriorating standards of living and increasing prices and an end to the regular power cuts, demonstrators in Egypt told MEE. “What’s becoming more popular now is that protesters make an oath at each demonstration promising to continue the revolution and achieve the 25 January revolutionary demands as well as take vengeance for all martyrs and political prisoners,” said Diaa Sawy, spokesperson for the coalition for Youth against the Coup. Several observers have seen the former field marshal to have brought economic and diplomatic development as well as hope to the Egyptians after a tumults three years since the ouster of Mubarak in 2011. They also reported deteriorating human rights and political freedoms however.

Syria Headline:  Jabhat al-Nusra Regroups after ISIS Success in Iraq

The successful ISIS advance in the wake of its June 2014 capture of the Iraqi city of Mosul has prompted a shift in rival al-Qaeda group JN’s disposition within Syria. JN has abandoned its former center of gravity in Deir ez-Zour province in favor of consolidating control in Idlib Province. This shift represents a transition by JN away from discreet influence within outwardly rebel-dominated structures that had characterized its activities in Deir ez-Zour. JN advances on the Syrian-Turkish border helps to replace revenue lost to ISIS from the oil fields in Deir ez-Zour. It also allows JN to regroup deep within the rebel center of gravity in northwestern Syria. A campaign to “counter corruption” in Idlib served as the pretext for JN’s seizure of control. Rebel participation in this anti-corruption activity has allowed JN to reaffirm its influence within rebel ranks. Despite abandoning its involvement in joint Shari’a courts alongside prominent rebel groups, JN is unlikely to divert from its desired end state of an Islamic State in a post-Assad Syria.

ISIS militants in Iraq’s northwest Ninevah province have created a police force to “implement the orders of the religious judiciary,” according to a well-known militant Islamist website. Photos on the website showed armed men in black clothing with “Islamic Police Ninevah State” printed on the arm. The police forces were in freshly painted police cars and one photo showed militiamen on a river boat. It was not clear when the photos were posted or when the police force was established. The text on the website said the force would “maintain order and arrest culprits and the corrupt.” The text said it would be different from police forces in other states, which it described as “a tool to suppress dissent.” Residents in Ninevah told Reuters the police’s main duty appears to be to detain people they consider opposed to their cause, however.

A series of bomb attacks have claimed lives of 28 people and injured dozens more across Iraq, security sources say. Iraqi officials say at least 17 people lost their lives in separate bombings in the capital Baghdad on Friday.

Several thousand Syrian Kurds began crossing into Turkey on Friday fleeing Islamic State fighters who advanced into their villages, prompting warnings of massacres from Kurdish leaders. Islamic State (IS) fighters have seized villages in northern Syria over the past two days and are besieging the mainly Kurdish town of Ayn al-Arab, known as Kobani in Kurdish, on the Turkish border. Meanwhile, in a contradictory news report, Turkish police and troops fired tear gas and water cannon Friday at scores of people staging a protest near the Syrian border at Ankara’s refusal to take in Kurds fleeing clashes with ISIS jihadists, local media reported.

In the interview, which aired the same day, Kerry said that the U.S. had secured “significant guarantees” from American allies in the Middle East. “We must shut borders,” he said. “There are guarantees to help on foreign fighters, on financing, on borders – border control, on military, on aid, training, and even on direct military action.” Kerry also praised Iraqi Kurdish Peshmerga forces, who he described as being “absolutely critical” in the fight against ISIS. “Baghdad and others within Iraq as a whole should say thank you to the Peshmerga who have been essential in the fight of taking back Mosul Dam, of holding the line so that ISIL couldn’t go to Erbil,” he said.

Headline: Seven killed as Ugandans, South Sudanese clash at border

At least seven people were killed in a string of clashes either side of Uganda and South Sudan’s border, a remote area plagued by cattle rustling and conflicts over territory, Uganda’s military said. The fighting started on Thursday when South Sudanese gunmen detained Ugandan local government officials carrying out a census, accusing them of straying into South Sudanese territory, said Uganda’s military spokesman Paddy Ankunda. That triggered demonstrations in the Ugandan border town of Moyo, where Ugandans razed houses belonging to South Sudanese residents, Ankunda said. That, in turn, led to a series of tit-for-tat attacks. “I am informed last evening Ugandan youth entered South Sudan and killed a South Sudanese woman. In retaliation, South Sudanese militants entered Uganda and killed five people at around midnight,” Ankunda told Reuters. A local government official in Moyo, Jimmy Vukoni, told Reuters by telephone that he had received reports that South Sudanese youths on Friday also crossed into Uganda and stole cattle, burnt houses and raped women.

The newly elected chief made the request on Thursday, urging all soldiers and officers to fight “extremist outlaws” operating in the North African country. “At a time when our beloved country is under fierce attack, we call on all members of the armed forces, officers and soldiers of all description, to return to duty over a maximum period of 15 days,” Nazhuri said. Nazhuri called on “Libya’s youths” to fight against militants from the so-called Fajr Libya alliance, which has captured Tripoli and most of the city of Benghazi. The main militia groups in the alliance have been named as terrorist organizations by the Libyan parliament.

US Secretary of State John Kerry met here with his Algerian counterpart Ramtane Lamamra, discussing counterterrorism partnership in light of the fight against the militant group, the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), and the ongoing conflict between the government and several rebel forces in Libya. “I want to particularly thank the Government of Algeria for their very prompt and strong support for the coalition to deal with the problem of ISIL,” Kerry told reporters ahead of the closed-door meeting, held late on Thursday. “We’re appreciative of their efforts in counterterrorism particularly.” “In the course of the next days in New York I will be hosting a small meeting of key nations that have an interest in Libya,” he added. “We all know that Libya is challenged right now. A near neighbor, Algeria has critical relationships, and together with Egypt the region is working very hard to help deal with this issue.” For his part, Lamamra said Algeria and the US “have been developing a very effective and action-oriented counterterrorism partnership” which has “proven to be very serious.”

Headline:  Morocco: a New Law Criminalizes Traveling to Tension Zones

Amid the growing number of Moroccans who travel to Syria and Iraq in order to join the Islamic State’s ranks, the Moroccan government has passed a new law, on Thursday that criminalizes traveling to the tension areas. In a press conference on Thursday, Minister of Justice and Liberties Mustafa Ramid stated that the new bill aims at protecting the Moroccan youth from “being lured to the tension areas, where killing and beheading happens, every day.” The Minister of Justice added that whoever attempts to travel to these areas will be detained, under this new bill, “since the intention of traveling to the tension areas is always baked by terrorism intentions”. This new law aims at facing the growing number of ISIS-linked cells that brainwash the Moroccan youth into joining the Islamic State ranks for Jihad. The new law includes an article, which allows the arrest and the trial of any Moroccan in Morocco or abroad, for committing a terrorist crime, outside Morocco. “This new law criminalizes forming any all the organizations, inside Morocco or abroad which aims at carrying out terrorist operations, or the cells that trains Moroccan youth in order to send them to the terrorist ranks,” said Mustafa Ramid.

In his remarks during a joint press conference after a one-hour-long bilateral meeting with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, Davutoğlu said if Armenia shows respect to Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity and peace is established between Azerbaijan and Armenia, Yerevan will benefit from regional cooperation projects. “As long as the Karabakh problem [exists] and Armenia’s hard-line stance continues, it will remain outside of all of the projects. … Turkey will stand by Azerbaijan’s struggle until every centimeter of Azerbaijani territories is disengaged [from by Armenia]. International law agrees with this. Until international law is fulfilled as required, Turkey will make efforts standing shoulder to shoulder with Azerbaijan to turn the region into a peaceful one,” he said, adding that any negative stance towards Azerbaijan from Armenia will receive a harsh reaction from Turkey.

International airlines have suspended flights to Yemen’s main airport for 24 hours due to weeks of clashes near the capital, authorities said. “Arab and foreign airlines have decided to suspend their flights to Sanaa for 24 hours because of developments in the capital,” the Civil Aviation Authority said overnight. The measure could be extended or reconsidered depending on the security situation, it said in a statement carried by the official Saba news agency. The move follows fighting between rebels, known as Huthis or Ansarullah, and fighters backed by troops. Nearly 40 people were killed in violence just outside the capital on Thursday. Meanwhile, Armed Shi’ite rebels shelled Yemen’s state-run television building on Friday as they advanced into Sanaa, sending hundreds fleeing their homes in a dramatic escalation of violence after weeks of fighting and protests, officials and residents said.

Catalan leader Artur Mas has said the Scottish referendum has reinforced his plan to hold a similar vote at home. Speaking in Barcelona on Friday (19 September), he noted that the devolved Catalan parliament is likely to pass a law on the referendum later the same day. “I will sign the decree on this consultation in Catalonia. In fact, I will call this consultation on 9 November as agreed some months ago with the majority of Catalan political forces”. He said he would have preferred it if Scotland had voted Yes. But he added: “I am happy, not because of the result of the referendum, but because there was one … I am very happy because we have a precedent in the European Union, a very powerful precedent, that these kind of differences can be resolved through a referendum”. “It’s a very powerful message that the UK is sending to the entire world”.

Headline:  Argentina’s Poverty Risks Quadrupling, World Bank Says

Argentina risks quadrupling its poverty level as the economy stalls, the World Bank says. Those living on $4-$10 per day, or 33 percent of Argentina’s population as of 2012, are vulnerable to falling into poverty in the case of an adverse shock, according to the World Bank’s 2015-2018 report on the South American nation. The poverty rate for the country’s 43 million people may increase to more than 40 percent from about 11 percent, it said. “Strengthening macroeconomic resilience, improving the business environment, and boosting investor confidence will be critical to fostering investment and expanding and sustaining the employment thereby generated,” the report said. Argentina defaulted on its international bonds July 30 after a U.S. judge blocked a $539 million interest payment until the government pays so-called holdouts from a 2001 default in full. South America’s second-largest economy contracted in the first quarter while the annual inflation rate is about 40 percent.

California’s first cases of a virus that has been spreading across the country were confirmed Thursday by the state’s chief health official. Four cases of enterovirus D68 have been confirmed, all in Southern California. One was in Ventura County; three others were in San Diego County. The patients ages ranged from 2 to 13 years old. More instances of the disease were expected as results from lab tests come back, the California Department of Public Health said in announcing the cases. The virus can cause severe respiratory illness in young children and has sent dozens to the hospital across the country. The spread of the disease to California was expected, state health officer Dr. Ron Chapman said. As of Wednesday, 18 other states had confirmed 153 cases total cases of the virus, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “There will definitely be more. It’s just a matter of time. This will spread across the entire country,” Dr. Pia Pannaraj, an infectious diseases specialist at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, told KTLA. California joins Montana and Colorado as being the only states in the Western U.S. to have confirmed cases.

Wolverine, Ghost Rider, the Incredible Hulk — all of these characters have at least one awesome trait in common: the ability to heal themselves. And now, the Pentagon wants to give ordinary people this superhuman capability. A new military-sponsored program aims to develop a tiny device that can be implanted in the body, where it will use electrical impulses to monitor the body’s organs, healing these crucial parts when they become infected or injured. Known as Electrical Prescriptions, or ElectRx, the program could reduce dependence on pharmaceutical drugs and offer a new way to treat illnesses, according to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the branch of the U.S. Department of Defense responsible for developing the program.

More than 20,000 people were evacuated in the city of Marikina in eastern metropolitan Manila, where the river swelled and reached a critical level, the city government said. “We could be trapped in our homes, so we needed to evacuate,” said Catherine Otares, mother of three. Local authorities sent rubber boats and amphibious vehicles to rescue residents from their waterlogged homes, as floods were past head-deep in some areas. “A lot of people were asking for help, since last night. It was raining hard, and the water levels were going up, so we needed to respond,” rescuer Jeremy Gatchang said.

A senior Hamas official on Thursday said the Gaza-based group are considering alternatives to the “failed” Palestinian unity government, as relations continue to sour with President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party. “The Palestinian unity government has failed in its missions until now. We will think of alternatives after the end of its legal period,” Mahmoud al-Zahar told Anadolu Agency. The unity government was formed on 2 June ending a seven year long rift between Hamas and Fatah. The two had governed separately, Hamas in the Gaza Strip and Fatah in the West Bank, since elections won by the former in 2006 led to a violent power struggle a year later in Gaza. It is not clear when the “legal period” of the unity government ends, although Zahar may be referring to a condition in the agreement that stipulated elections must be held six months from June this year – this would mean the government’s mandate ends on 2 December.

Headline:  Fears of Rise in Extremism in Tripoli over IS, al-Nusra Front ‘Infiltration’

There are rising fears that the northern city of Tripoli will become a hub for Islamic State and al-Nusra Front fighters, who have engaged in gunbattles with the Lebanese army in a border town and beheaded two soldiers. As Safir daily on Thursday quoted security officials as saying that extremists have been spending huge amounts of money to lure young men and encourage them to be armed. Tripoli is back to the “point of disorder” after the “infiltration” of the extremists, the officials said. The city has been relatively calm since the army and security forces implemented a plan to end gunbattles between rival groups earlier this year. Scores of civilians, soldiers and fighters have been killed and injured in dozens of rounds of fighting between the impoverished neighborhoods of Bab al-Tabbaneh, which is majority Sunni, and Jabal Mohsen, whose residents are from the Alawite sect of Syrian President Bashar Assad. The security officials told As Safir that the army, security agencies and al-Mustaqbal movement ministers are preparing “preventive steps” to stop Takfiris from expanding in Tripoli and to thwart their plans. Militants from the IS and al-Nusra Front have already engaged in deadly clashes with the Lebanese army in the northeastern border town of Arsal. They took with them hostages from the army and security forces last month and later beheaded two of them. On Tuesday, gunmen crossed the border from Syria and kidnapped a soldier from his parents’ farm on the outskirts Arsal. The IS also threatened to behead another army soldier over what it described as the Lebanese government’s “lies” and “procrastination” in the negotiations over the abducted troops. The presence of the militants on the border and among the more than 1.1 million Syrian refugees across the country has raised fears over Lebanon become another Syria and Iraq where the IS has controlled thousands of square kilometers of territory.

A Saudi suicide bomber with the ISIS group called on fellow Saudis to wage jihad and expressed hope that the group would expand into Saudi Arabia and “expel the disbelievers from the Arabian Peninsula,” the SITE monitoring service said. It said the man, identified as Abu Hajer al-Jazrawi, had carried out a suicide bombing in August in Syria’s Raqqa, a bastion of ISIS. The video was posted on an ISIS internet feed late Wednesday. Addressing his countrymen in an apparent call for attacks not only on the ruling family and Westerners in Saudi Arabia, but also on the kingdom’s senior Muslim scholars who have denounced ISIS, Jazrawi said: “It is time to say ‘we will expel the disbelievers from the Arabian Peninsula’. The fire begins with a small spark.

Syria Headline:   House Approves Plan to Arm and Train ISIS to Fight ISIS

The House on Wednesday approved President Barack Obama’s request to arm and train Syrian rebels in the fight against the “Islamic State” (IS) group, CNN reports. With significant opposition to the proposal in both parties, the vote was 273-156, according to the report. Many Republicans argue the strategy isn’t tough enough to defeat IS; many Democrats worry the plan could drag the United States into another long military engagement. The proposal would authorize the Pentagon to provide assistance to “appropriately vetted” members of the Syrian opposition and require the administration to give Congress a detailed plan for helping the rebels before that assistance could begin. The Senate could vote as early as Thursday, noted CNN. Congress is expected to debate a broader war authorization after the midterm elections.

Syria Headline:   Israel believes Syria kept ‘significant’ chemical munitions

Syria Headline:   John Kerry declares Syria regime has broken chemical weapons deal

Israel believes Syria has retained caches of combat-ready chemical weapons after giving up raw materials used to produce such munitions under pressure from foreign powers, a senior Israeli official said on Thursday. Summarizing Israeli intelligence estimates that were previously not disclosed to avoid undermining the Syrians’ surrender of their declared chemical arsenal, the official said they had kept some missile warheads, air-dropped bombs and rocket-propelled grenades primed with toxins like sarin. “There is, to my mind, still in the hands of Syria a significant residual capability … that could be used in certain circumstances and could be potentially very serious,” the official told Reuters on condition of anonymity. While saying Israel had a “high degree of confidence” in its information, he declined to give figures for chemical weapons allegedly kept by Syria, citing secrecy concerns as well as the possibility some had been destroyed or used by President Bashar al-Assad’s forces. “What we are saying is that there are a number of questions here that still have to be clarified, still have to be looked at very closely” by international inspectors, the official said.

Syria Headline: Local Kurdish sources say ISIL militants captured the new areas in a major advance towards the city of Ayn al-Arab bordering Turkey on Thursday

The new wave of operations by the ISIL militants started on Wednesday, during which 16 Kurdish villages were seized. Sources say the ISIL terrorists used heavy weaponry, including tanks and artillery, during the raids. Nawaf Khalil, a spokesman for Syria’s powerful Kurdish Democratic Union Party, the Kurdish fighters withdrew or lost up to 20 villages in the Kobani region and evacuated civilians with them. “The battles that are taking place in Kobani are the most violent,” Khalil said adding that Islamic State group fighters were using tanks in their offensive. Khalil called on Kurds around the world to come to Syria to defend Kobani.

Syria Headline:   Syria continues air attacks in Damascus suburbs

Syria Headline:   As rockets fly in Damascus, last hopes fade

Syrian warplanes continued their week-long attack on rebel positions near the capital of Damascus, concentrating on the rebel-held city of Douma. At least 10 people, including civilians, were killed Wednesday in the airstrikes, bringing the death count to at least 105 people since Sept. 11, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported. The area known as Eastern Ghouta, including Douma and nearby communities of suburban Damascus, is regarded as the core of opposition to the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad. It is the area where Syrian forces allegedly used chemical weapons to kill about 1,300 people in August 2013. Troops from the Syrian army and the Lebanese Hezbollah militia have increased operations in Ghouta in recent weeks. The Syrian government line is that the rebels are gradually being pushed out of the districts beyond the ring road which they have held for almost two years. While it is true that some areas have been wrested back from rebel control, thanks to merciless pounding by artillery and aircraft, new areas have fallen. Kashkul, on the south-eastern edge of Damascus, used to be a typical new settlement of five-storey buildings gradually encroaching on farmland. Some were fully inhabited, others still under construction. Shops were always busy and the streets full of cheap cars and pick-up trucks. Now the asphalt is marked by criss-cross patterns imprinted by tank tracks, and troops stand beside armoured personnel carriers, awaiting their orders. “We are suffering from the government side and from the opposition. Both sides are destroying the city. Both use rockets and both are inaccurate. There is no solution. This will only end when there are no Syrians left”, he said desperately. “Too much blood has been spilt. How can there be forgiveness? Some families have lost five members or more.  The situation is terrible.”

Syria Headline:   ISIS goes underground in stronghold Raqqa

With the U.S. military poised to strike, ISIS militants in Syria’s Deir al-Zor province have abandoned some of their bases and redeployed their forces to other positions, activists said Wednesday. ISIS has “started to empty out many of their bases and positions in Deir al-Zor province,” said Abu Osama, an activist from the eastern region, which is mostly under jihadist control. Speaking via the Internet, Abu Osama said all of ISIS’ known positions in Ashara, a town about 60 km east of the provincial capital, had been “shut down.” Abu Osama also said the jihadists had emptied out the former governorate building in Deir al-Zor city, which ISIS was using as its main weapons storage depot in the area. And in the city of Mayadin near the Iraqi border, “ ISIS pulled out of eight bases, leaving only three open – the [former] post office, the military intelligence building and the religious court,” he told AFP. “Even the oil fields are being emptied out. The families of the foreign jihadists who had been living in the residential buildings by the fields have been evacuated,” he added.

Major military preparations are underway by Islamic State (IS) militants in their stronghold of Mosul in northern Iraq in anticipation of a major assault by US and Kurdish forces, according to sources inside. The militants are in full military gear and seen digging trenches and building barriers, said a source in Mosul, capital of Nineveh province. They are also reinforcing defenses on major roads connecting Iraq’s second-largest city to Kurdish-held areas. Fighters – particularly foreign jihadis – are believed to have been deployed around the city, said the source, speaking on condition of anonymity. The Islamic militants are particularly concentrated on the borders of Duhok province in the south, and on the frontline south of Kirkuk. A major attack by the US air force and Kurdish ground troops is anticipated on Mosul, the first city in Iraq to fall to the militants in June. Meanwhile, the Iraqi air force dropped leaflets over Salahaddin province on Wednesday, warning people to stay away from IS installations and wherever the militants are gathered.

Headline:   New ISIS video uses Brit as mouthpiece

According to different reports, the Islamic State has launched a new video with captured journalist John Cantlie. But instead of decapitating their victim, the Islamic State indents to use him for promotional purposes. In the video, Cantlie says he was “abandoned” by the UK government and claims he will seek to counter the “manipulated truths” told by world media against the Islamic State in a number of videos. “I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking ‘he’s only doing this because he’s a prisoner – he’s got a gun at his head and he’s being forced to do this,” Cantlie says. “Well, I am a prisoner – that I cannot deny – but seeing as I’ve been abandoned by my government and my fate now lies in the hands of the Islamic State, I have nothing to lose.” “Over the next few programs, I am going to show you the truth as the Western media tries to drag the public back to the abyss of another war with the Islamic State,” he concludes. In the new video, titled “Lend Me Your Ears, Messages from the British Detainee John Cantlie,” the man identified as Cantlie says he was captured by the Islamic State after arriving in Syria in November 2012. He says he worked for newspapers and magazines in Britain including the Sunday Times, the Sun and the Sunday Telegraph. “After two disastrous and hugely unpopular wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, why is it that our governments appear so keen to get involved in yet another unwinnable conflict?” the man says in the video.

Headline:  ‘Kill Christians, slaughter their children': Thugs waving Islamic State flags threaten church-goers in Sydney

A series of anti-terror raids across Sydney and Brisbane were sparked by a senior Islamic State militant ordering “demonstration killings” in Australia, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said Thursday. “The exhortations, quite direct exhortations, were coming from an Australian who is apparently quite senior in ISIL to networks of support back in Australia to conduct demonstration killings here in this country,” he said. “So this is not just suspicion, this is intent and that’s why the police and security agencies decided to act in the way they have.” Australian police detained 15 people Thursday in a major counterterrorism operation, saying intelligence indicated a random, violent attack was being planned on Australian soil. About 800 federal and state police officers raided more than a dozen properties across Sydney as part of the operation — the largest in Australian history, Australian Federal Police Deputy Commissioner Andrew Colvin said. Separate raids in the eastern cities of Brisbane and Logan were also conducted. One person was charged with serious terrorism-related offenses and was scheduled to appear in court later Thursday. Colvin declined to detail the exact nature of the charges. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation said court documents were expected to reveal that the plan involved snatching a random member of the public in Sydney, draping them in an Islamic State flag and beheading them on camera.

Headline:   Poland Wants United Nations to Limit Russia’s Influence

Frustrated by the United Nations’ passive response to Russian aggression in Ukraine, President Bronislaw Komorowski of Poland has said he intends to call on the organization to change its rules to prevent Moscow from vetoing Security Council actions on the region. “My main message will be that perhaps the United Nations should be reformed to make the institution capable of addressing the threats that really exist today,” Mr. Komorowski said in an interview this week at the presidential palace here in advance of his visit to the United Nations in New York next week. “I think blocking the Security Council on Ukraine is a token, a symptom, of the general weakness of the U.N.” Like the other permanent members of the United Nations Security Council — Britain, China, France and the United States — Russia has the power to veto any of the Council’s actions. But actually removing Russia’s veto on the Council is nearly impossible. Under Article 108 of the organization’s charter, removing the right to veto would require both a vote of two-thirds of the General Assembly and ratification by whatever constitutional process is in place in two-thirds of the member nations, including all five permanent Council members.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is addressing a joint session of the US Congress during a key visit to Washington. He is seeking further support to tackle what he describes as Russian aggression. Ukraine accuses Russia of supporting rebels in the east of the country, but Moscow denies this. Mr Poroshenko earlier held talks at the state department in Washington with Secretary of State John Kerry. More than 3,000 people have died in fighting between Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russian rebels in the eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions since April. A fragile ceasefire agreed on 5 September is holding, despite accusations of shelling by both sides. On Tuesday, Ukraine’s MPs approved a bill granting self-rule to parts of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions – a move described as “capitulation” by some lawmakers. The unrest in the east followed Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s southern Crimea peninsula in March.

Headline:  West tells Iran it must address nuclear bomb fears

Western powers told Iran on Thursday it must step up cooperation with a U.N. watchdog’s investigation into suspected atomic bomb research if it wants to get a broader nuclear deal that would ease sanctions. The warning was issued at a board meeting of the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna, as chief negotiators from Iran and six world powers prepared to resume talks in New York after a two-month hiatus. A stalled IAEA inquiry could further complicate the powers’ parallel efforts to reach a settlement with Iran on curbing its nuclear program in exchange for a gradual phasing out of financial and other punitive measures hurting its economy. The United States and the European Union said they were concerned about the slow headway so far in the IAEA’s long-running probe into allegations that Iran has worked on designing a nuclear weapon. Iran denies the charge and says it is Israel’s assumed atomic arsenal that threatens Middle East peace. An IAEA report in early September showed Iran had failed to answer questions about what the U.N. agency calls the possible military dimensions of the country’s nuclear program by an Aug. 25 deadline.

Headline:   Because of ISIS Morocco Asks Turkey to Require Visa For Moroccans

To tighten its grip on extremists who seek to join the ranks of the Islamic State (IS), the Moroccan government reportedly asked Turkey to require a visa for Moroccans wishing to visit or pass through Turkey, Moroccan newspaper Akhbar Al Youm said in its Thursday edition. According to the same source, the Moroccan authorities aim to curb the flow of Moroccans joining IS, most of whom travel to Syria and Iraq through Turkish territory. The fact that Moroccans don’t need a visa to enter Turkey makes it easier for some extremists to get through its borders and join the ranks of this terrorist organization. The same source added that Turkey does not seem to be enthusiastic about the Moroccan request for political and economic reasons. The political reason is related to Ankara’s reluctance to fully engage in the international coalition led by the United States to destroy IS. The second reason is related to the importance of the Moroccan market for the Turkish tourism sector. More than 100,000 Moroccans visit Turkey every year. This has a positive impact on the country’s economy, which relies heavily on tourism. If the Turkish government meets the request made by its Moroccan counterpart, the number of Moroccans tourists who visit Turkey is likely to plummet, which will have a negative impact on its economy. A report published by CNN earlier this month said that over 1,500 Moroccans have joined the ranks of terrorist groups in Syria, including IS.

Headline:  Turkey announces strategy to bolster EU accession bid

Turkey said on Thursday crises in the Middle East and elsewhere made closer co-operation between Ankara and the European Union essential and announced a new program to revive the country’s stalled drive for EU membership. A document released by the EU Affairs Ministry described the accession process as “the most important modernization project after the proclamation of the Republic of Turkey”. The document highlights a substantial shift in tone on the part of the Turkish authorities, who have reacted angrily to criticisms from European officials since last year over their handling of anti-government protests and a widespread corruption scandal which has swirled around Erdogan’s inner circle. Despite tensions, relations between Ankara and its European partners have apparently been cemented in recent months over efforts to tackle the flow of so-called “foreign fighters” heading to and from Europe to join militant groups such as Islamic State in neighboring Syria and Iraq. “The recent dramatic changes, from Syria to Ukraine and Middle East to North Africa, require Turkey and the EU to act jointly against the global and regional threats,” the 12-page document laying out Turkey’s strategy, stated. The program is due to come into operation in November and will focus on “Political Reform Process, Socio-Economic Transformation in the Accession Process and EU Communication Strategy,” the document said. The strategy targets a change of the constitution, better implementation of existing laws, as well as a drive to drum up public support for the EU, and will be part of the government’s so-called “action plan”, due to run until 2019.

Groups affiliated with the terrorist Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) set six more state schools on fire in Yüksekova, a district of Hakkari province, on Tuesday and Wednesday night, escalating tension that erupted following the government shutting down three newly opened private schools offering education in the Kurdish language in three southeastern provinces. After setting fire to five schools in Cizre, a district of Şırnak province, on Tuesday evening, members of the Patriotic Revolutionary Youth Movement (YDG-H) and some PKK supporters threw Molotov cocktails at four other state schools located in various parts of Yüksekova on Tuesday night. The schools — Esenyurt, Hamit Kesici, Uğur Sıtkı and Gazi primary schools — were seriously damaged by the petrol bombs. The YDG-H also set fire to two other schools in the same district on Wednesday night. With the start of the 2014-2015 school year on Monday, three Kurdish-language schools opened in Diyarbakır’s Bağlar district, Cizre and Yüksekova, with each holding its own inauguration ceremony. However, the three district governor’s offices in which the schools are located had warned residents that any ceremonies heralding the schools’ openings would be illegal if held.

Headline: Roadside Bombs Kills 4 UN Peacekeepers in Mali

A roadside bomb in northern Mali killed four U.N. peacekeepers and wounded three on Thursday, a spokesman said of the latest in a string of deadly attacks on the force. A car carrying Chadian troops hit the explosive north of Aguel’hoc, which is near the embattled city of Kidal, said Olivier Salgado. Earlier this month, four U.N. peacekeepers were killed and several were wounded when their convoy hit a mine in the same region. Another mine killed a peacekeeper earlier this week. There was no immediate claim of responsibility and Salgado did not speculate on who was responsible for the bomb. Previous land mines have been blamed on Islamic extremists linked to al-Qaida, and they have taken responsibility for some. Northern Mali fell under control of Tuareg separatists and then al-Qaida-linked Islamic extremists following a military coup in 2012. A French-led intervention last year scattered the extremists, but some remain active in the countryside and there have been continued bursts of violence. U.N. troops are now trying to stabilize the north, and peace talks have begun between the Malian government and Tuaregs, who maintain a heavy presence in Kidal and have resisted the authority of the Bamako-based government. Al-Qaida is not participating in those discussions.

Headline: Bahrain warns of ‘counter measures’ against Doha

Bahraini authorities have threatened to take “counter measures” against Qatar should it continue to naturalize Bahrains, Al Sharq al-Awsat newspaper reported on Thursday.  Sheikh Rashid bin Abdullah al-Khalifa, Bahrain’s interior minister, warned that his country would adopt these measures if Qatar does not stop efforts to lure Bahraini nationals towards abandoning their citizenship, an act he called “unfriendly” and offensive. “Such conduct goes against the spirit of brotherhood,” Sheikh al-Khalifa is quoted as saying by the Arabic daily, adding that it also violated the cooperation “we looked forward to” between Gulf Cooperation Council states. If Qatar continues to promote the abandonment of Bahraini nationality, Sheikh al-Khalifa warned that officials in Bahrain will have to resort to measures “they do not look forward to.”

Headline:  Armed Shiite rebels push into Yemen’s capital

Shiite rebels clashed with Sunni Islamists backed by troops north of Sanaa Thursday, as the U.N. envoy huddled in the rebel stronghold to try to end Yemen’s political crisis. Fighting raged between the rebels, known also as Houthis, and fighters of the Islah (Reform) party in Shamlan. Witnesses said five people were wounded. The fighting has spread to Iman University of religion which belongs to top Islah figure preacher Abdul-Majid al-Zandani, they said. The capture of Iman University, a few kilometres from president Hadi’s residence, marks a dramatic victory for the Houthis, a Shiite group based in the northern province of Saada who are demanding government changes. Explosions and gunfire sounded on Wednesday as Houthi militants battled it out with fighters loyal to general Ali Mohsen, a rival of ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh. Residents in the east of the capital said the two sides were using anti-aircraft missiles. Others fled their homes. U.N. envoy Jamal Benomar flew unexpectedly Wednesday to rebel bastion Saada where he had a three-hour meeting with their leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi. Benomar called the talks “constructive and positive,” and the two are expected to meet again Thursday. However, sources close to the talks said they still face hurdles, mainly on the dismantling of protest camps set up by the rebels weeks ago in and around Sanaa. The rebels earlier rejected an offer by President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi to name a new premier and reduce a controversial fuel price rise, two core rebel demands.

Headline: Scots turn out to vote in independence referendum

Voters from across Scotland streamed into polling places Thursday to have their say in a historic referendum that could create the world’s newest independent nation, while breaking up one of the West’s oldest and most consequential political unions. With polls showing an exceptionally tight contest, the pro-breakaway nationalists and the status quo unionists made frenzied appeals that extended right up to the moment voters cast ballots. “Today you hold Scotland’s future in your hands,” read a leaflet that 50-year-old “yes” campaigner Ivan Mckee was passing out to fellow Scots as they stepped into a community center in the heart of Glasgow. “We think we are going to win,” Mckee said, noting momentum toward “yes” that has been reflected in the polls.“We have been working at this for two years, and it’s all paying off now.”

Sierra Leone prepared Thursday, September 18, for an unprecedented 3-day nationwide lockdown to contain the deadly spread of the Ebola virus in a controversial move which experts claimed could worsen the epidemic. The population of six million will be confined to their homes from midnight (0000 GMT) going into Friday as almost 30,000 volunteers go door-to-door uncovering patients and bodies hidden in people’s homes. “Rain or shine, the shutdown exercise is going to go ahead. During the three days… the job is going to get done,” said Steven Gaojia, head of the government’s emergency operation centre. The worst-ever outbreak of Ebola has claimed more than 500 lives in Sierra Leone, one of three countries at the epicenter of the epidemic which has so far killed almost 2,500. “Ose to Ose Ebola Tok” – “house-to-house Ebola talk” in the widely-spoken Krio language – will see more than 7,000 volunteer teams of four visiting the country’s 1.5 million homes. They will hand out bars of soap and information on how to prevent infection, as well as setting up “neighbourhood watch”-style community Ebola surveillance teams. The government has said the teams will not enter people’s homes and are not tasked with collecting patients or bodies, but will call emergency services or burial teams “if by chance the teams happen to bump into such situations”.

Minnesota has joined a group of states reporting a respiratory illness caused by the virus known as enterovirus 68. State health officials said Wednesday that a case was confirmed Tuesday evening via lab tests from a child hospitalized with acute symptoms. The child has since been released and is recovering at home, the agency said. Shortly after the Department of Health report, the University of Minnesota said it had confirmed 11 cases at its children’s hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota Public Radio News reported. A hospital spokeswoman told The Associated Press she did not know the conditions of the patients. The Health Department said the results confirmed suspicions that enterovirus is circulating in Minnesota. Some hospitals have reported an increase in children being brought in for respiratory problems. At least 12 other states have confirmed cases of the virus, many in the Midwest. It can cause mild to severe illness, and may even require breathing help for patients with the worst cases. But no deaths have been reported.

At least 16,000 patient have contracted the chikungunya virus in El Salvador, prompting health officials in the Central American country to step up the fight Monday to eliminate disease-carrying mosquitoes. “Of the 16,000 chikungunya cases, 11,000 are in the department of San Salvador,” where the capital is located, Health Minister Violeta Menjívar said during a press conference. Menjívar said the country remains on “national alert,” which was declared last June for both the chikungunya virus and dengue, both transmitted by mosquitoes. She said officials would “intensify the response,” including stepping up fumigation efforts and national awareness campaigns aimed at reminding residents to eliminate stagnant water. “We are calling for the unification of efforts by government agencies, municipalities and the Education Ministry [for a campaign] in schools,” the minister said. Chikungunya fever is transmitted by the Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes, and causes a sudden high fever, skin rashes, pounding headaches, nausea and muscle pain.

The data analyzed the marijuana and prescription drug habits of 534 Americans. What’s more, nearly 81 percent said they scored their cannabis illegally, according to the survey. Cannabis and the workplace seem quite linked lately. Entrepreneur and venture capitalist Peter Thiel recently chimed in on marijuana and work.

The Italian army is aiming high with its latest weapon on the medical front: marijuana. The ministers of defense and health signed a deal Thursday for a joint project to produce cannabis derivative drugs for pain relief. The famous spiky-leafed plants will be cultivated and treated at a military pharmaceutical plant in Florence. “The aim is to produce medicine for extremely serious pathologies, such as multiple sclerosis, or for pain relief,” Health Minister Beatrice Lorenzin told a press conference. “The project has no ideological or cultural value, it’s just in the interest of the sick.” The project should produce around 80 to 100 kilos of active principle – the extract from marijuana plants used in medicines – each year. Defense minister Roberta Pinotti said the Italian military’s medical skills are “often unsung or underestimated. In Florence we have everything we need to begin production.”

Headline:  Last month was world’s hottest August on record: US

Last month was the hottest August on record for global average temperatures over land and ocean surfaces, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said on Thursday. If the trend continues, 2014 could set new records for planet-wide heat, a development that would raise new alarm over the pace of global warming and the burning of fossil fuels. The month’s temperature was 1.35 degrees Fahrenheit above the 20th century average, the agency said in its monthly climate report. “It was the largest departure from average of any month on record,” said Jake Crouch, a climate scientist at NOAA, noting that record-keeping began in 1880. The month’s average land and ocean surface temperature was 61.45 Fahrenheit (16.35 Celsius). The 20th century average for August is 60.1°F (15.6°C). The period of January to August was also the third warmest on record, said the report. “If we continue a consistent departure from average for the rest of 2014, we will edge out 2010 for the warmest year on record,” Crouch told reporters.

The United Nations on Monday was forced to pull back hundreds of peacekeepers to the Israeli-occupied sector of the Golan after Syrian rebels advanced on their positions.

Headline:  Syrian rebel calls for new gov’t to make peace with Israel

A mortar shell from Syria exploded in the Golan Heights early on Wednesday afternoon, landing on the Israeli side of the Quneitra crossing that is the only point of access between the two countries. The shell landed in open territory and according to reports did not cause damage or injury. Apparently the mortar shell was a case of stray fire from the intense fighting on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights, which has been completely captured by Syrian rebel forces. Wednesday’s spillover is far from the first such incident since rebel forces started their latest successful campaign to wrest control of the region from Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces. There have been numerous rockets and mortar shells in recent weeks that have wounded several Israelis, including cases of supposedly stray gunfire. Likewise Israel shot down a Syrian drone after it strayed into Israeli airspace late last month. Despite the various incursions, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said on Tuesday “the rebels are advancing, but they don’t threaten us. Those close to the border are local militias.” In contrast to his statements, video evidence has shown that not only local militias but the Nusra Front, Al Qaeda’s official branch in Syria, has captured the town of Naba Al-Sakhr in Quneitra along the border with Israel. In capturing the region, the Al Qaeda-linked forces reportedly seized UN weapons, equipment and uniforms, in addition to temporarily holding 45 Fijian UN peacekeepers captive. Speaking to reporters at the UN’s New York headquarters, Syrian UN Ambassador Bashar Ja’afari on Tuesday accused Israel of aiding the rebels in conquering the region from Syria.

Headline:  Southern Residents Flee Amid Fears of Hamas Rosh Hashana Attack

Hamas authorities in the Gaza Strip arrested the militants who launched a mortar at southern Israel on Tuesday evening, Israel Radio quoted a senior defense official as saying.
Israel made clear to Hamas that if it did not take swift action against those responsible for firing the mortar, the IDF would need to enter the picture, according to Israel Radio.
Hamas told mediators that it was interested in preserving the cease-fire and that it apprehended those responsible for the mortar. Defense sources told Israel Radio that Hamas moved quickly to arrest the perpetrators because the organization is “disturbed by the situation.” A Palestinian shell fired from Gaza landed in Israeli territory, near the southern border on Tuesday evening. There were no injuries or damages in the attack, which occurred in the region between Eshkol and Sdot Negev. It was the first mortar or rocket attack from the Gaza Strip since August 26, when a truce went into effect between Hamas and Israel after 50 days of conflict.

It has a margin of error of three percent. The poll showed that 49% of respondents favored an armed intifada against Israel as opposed to 44% who said they were against it. Still, 56% said they supported an unarmed and non-violent resistance against Israel, while 35% expressed their opposition. The poll found that 57% of respondents expected the eruption of a third intifada in the West Bank. Only 32% said they did not expect such a thing to happen. According to the results, more than 70% of the respondents believe there will be another military encounter with Israel in the Gaza Strip. Another 84% said they supported the Palestinian Authority effort to join the International Criminal Court.

A 44-year-old hareidi Jewish man was wounded Tuesday night and hospitalized in moderate to light condition, after Arab terrorists hurled large rocks at his car in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina. The wounded man was treated by Magen David Adom (MDA) paramedics and evacuated to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in the capital, as the police launched an investigation to locate the perpetrators. Yehuda Mizrahi, one of the medics who was at the scene, reconstructed his part in the event to Arutz Sheva, saying “we joined a police vehicle at the entrance to Neve Ya’akov, where the police transferred to us a 44-year-old man who was fully conscious, suffering from a bleeding wound on his face, eye, and a wound to the jaw and teeth.” “He told us that while driving he was attacked with large rocks,” said Mizrahi. “We gave him first aid in the field and evacuated him quickly for continued treatment at the trauma room of the hospital as his status was classified as lightly to moderately wounded.” The latest attack is part of what is becoming known as a “silent intifada” focused particularly in Jerusalem, where attacks have risen exponentially in recent months, in a phenomenon that has been quickly spiraling out of control with lynch-mobs and even live gunfire.

Headline:  Israel recognizes Aramean minority in Israel as separate nationality

Israel’s interior minister signed an order on Tuesday recognizing Aramean as a separate national identity in the country’s population registry. The decision will allow about 200 Christian families who identify themselves as belonging to the ancient nationality to register as Arameans rather than as Arabs. Saar based his decision on three professional opinions, which concluded that the nationality met the conditions required for official recognition, including a historical heritage, religion, culture, origin and common language. The interior minister’s decision is expected to add fuel to the fire brewing in the Knesset over attempts to separate Muslim Israelis from Christian Israelis. MK Yariv Levin, the coalition chairman who was one of the driving forces behind recognizing the Aramean minority, declared he intended to promote a series of measures meant to distinguish between Christian citizens of Israel and Muslim citizens of Israel, to deepen the involvement of the Christian population in Israeli society and to encourage Christians to enlist in the Israel Defense Forces.
****Look at the number of Arabs compared to the number of Jews. They are now surrounded by their enemies and who better to bring in to help them than their Christian allies? It proves Israeli’s can live in peace with Christians unlike Muslims.

An Al-Qaeda-linked militant group holding Lebanese soldiers and police released a video of the captive men on Sunday, as officials continue mediation to release the men. In the two-part, 20-minute video released Sunday by the Nusra Front, one Lebanese soldier enquired after his mother, and another burst into tears as he spoke to his family. The video was spliced with montages of dead Syrian children and others suffering from hunger, as the words “Who will pay the price?” flashed across the screen. Lebanon is negotiating for the men’s release through mediation by officials from Qatar. The Nusra Front is demanding the release of accused Islamic militants from Lebanese detention, as well as money. They are also demanding that the Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah stop fighting in Syria alongside the forces of President Bashar Assad. On Sunday, Lebanese Prime Minister Tammam Salam traveled to the Qatari capital of Doha and held talks with senior officials there. Qatar is a major backer of Syrian rebel groups. Meanwhile, The Nusra Front threatened to kill one of the Lebanese soldiers it is holding Tuesday, an indication that Qatari-brokered negotiations to end the hostage crisis have reached an apparent deadlock.

Militants Wednesday kidnapped a Lebanese Army soldier as he went to visit his family in Wadi Hmeid on the outskirts of the northeastern border town of Arsal, security sources said. According to eye witnesses, gunmen in two pickup trucks snatched First Adjutant Kamal Mohammad Hujeiri, taking him by surprise, and fled to Arsal’s outskirts. The Army has not yet released any statement on the incident, while a high ranking commander refused to disclose any details in a phone call with The Daily Star. Media reports mentioned that groupings of militants appeared near the town’s entrance from the outskirts, but no clashes have been reported yet. Some locals spoke of a personal dispute between Hujeiri’s brothers and a group of Syrian men. Islamist militants from ISIS and the Nusra Front are holding at least 22 Lebanese soldiers and policemen captive after they fought five days of heavy battles with the Lebanese Army last month in Arsal. The militants have released seven servicemen and executed two soldiers. Swapping the hostages with Islamist prisoners held at Roumieh Prison has been the militants’ key demand, while the Lebanese government refuses such exchange deal.

It identified them as “Ahmed Miqati and his son Omar — who are wanted by Lebanese security agencies — Bilal Miqati, Mohammed al-Eter aka Abou Yaacoub, and his brother Bilal al-Eter.” The TV network said the five men left Tripoli as the implementation of a strict security plan got underway on April 1, when several other top fugitives went on the run. “Bilal Miqati was behind executing one of the Lebanese troops as the investigations of security agencies have revealed, while Mohammed al-Eter was present during the beheading of the other soldier,” LBCI said. On Tuesday, the TV station reported that “a computer comparison has proved that the features of the terrorist who stood over martyr Ali al-Sayyed’s body are identical to those of Bilal Miqati.” The security agency probing the case has become confident that “Miqati is the one who executed a-Sayyed,” LBCI said on Wednesday.

Headline:  Saudi Arabia’s top clerics speak out against Islamist militancy

Saudi Arabia’s top clerical council, the only body in the country authorised to issue fatwas or Islamic legal opinions, declared on Wednesday that “terrorism is a heinous crime” under Sharia, and perpetrators should be made an example of. The statement, days after Saudi Arabia and other Arab states pledged in Jeddah to combat militant ideology, was the most comprehensive attack the kingdom’s conservative clergy have made so far on Islamist radicalism and the Islamic State group. In a statement carried on state media, they did not specify particular punishments, but said they should act as a deterrent. Saudi Arabia applies the death penalty, usually by public beheading, for many serious crimes. Signed by all 21 members of the council and quoting extensively from the Koran and sayings of the Prophet Mohammad, the statement also prohibits militant financing or encouraging young people towards militant acts. It said people who issued fatwas or other opinions that “justify terrorism” were not permissable in any way and were “the order of Satan”.

Headline:  Jihadists claim bomb that killed six Egypt police

At least seven Egyptian policemen have lost their lives and two others sustained injuries when a powerful explosion ripped through their convoy in the violence-plagued Sinai Peninsula of the North African country. Egyptian Interior Ministry said the bomb was hidden deep under the asphalt of the highway linking the city of El-Arish, situated 344 kilometers (214 miles) northeast of the capital, Cairo, to the border town of Rafah early on Tuesday. Security forces cordoned off the area after the attack and launched an investigation into the incident. A security official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the blast shredded one of the armored personnel carriers and tore the policemen’s bodies to pieces.

Russia and Egypt have reached a preliminary deal for Cairo to buy arms worth $3.5 billion from Moscow, Interfax news agency quoted the head of a Russian state arms agency as saying on Wednesday. Speaking during an arms trade exhibition in South Africa, the head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, Alexander Fomin, did not give further details. Russia, the world’s second-largest arms exporter, has sought to boost its military ties with Egypt after relations between Cairo and its long-standing ally Washington soured, causing some defense cooperation between the two countries to be frozen. The head of Rosoboronexport, a state body that deals with arms exports, said the value of the agency’s order book was high in spite of Western sanctions against Moscow over Ukraine.

Syria Headline:    Islamic State shoots down Syrian war plane

Islamic State fighters shot down a Syrian war plane using anti-aircraft guns on Tuesday, the first time the group has downed a military jet since declaring its cross-border caliphate in June, a group monitoring the civil war said. The plane came down outside Islamic State’s stronghold of Raqqa city, 400 km (250 miles) northeast of Damascus, during air strikes on territory controlled by the group, a resident said. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a monitoring group which gathers information from a network of activists on the ground, reported five air raids on Raqqa on Tuesday. Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the organisation, cited sources close to Islamic State as saying the plane had been shot down.

Syria Headline:   Clashes escalate around Damascus

Clashes have escalated around Damascus in the last week after rebel forces ignited fronts south and east of the city, ending a lengthy period of calm for the capital. Rebel mortar shells rained in the center of Damascus, with 12 shells simultaneously striking several areas of the city on Sept. 16. The mortar shells on the city center came as fighting raged in the area of al-Dukhaniyya, 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) southeast of Damascus and within the Druze-Christian town of Jaramana. Al-Dukhaniyya is important as it is the main entrance to the towns of Ain ​​Tarma and Kfar Batna in eastern Ghouta. It’s also a gateway to Damascus, specifically the old city — and to the road to the international airport. Rebel fighters have managed to control al-Dukhaniyya and are trying to advance further westward. In a phone conversation with Al-Monitor, a rebel fighter known as Abu Ammar said controlling al-Dukhaniyya “is very important because it would ease the pressure on eastern Ghouta and would probably open the supply line toward the city of Jobar.” He added, “We are fighting under the unified command of the military factions in Ghouta, and regime forces were not ready for this surprise operation.” For 11 days now, about 10 rebel mortar shells fall daily on the eastern areas of the capital. Half of them fall on Jaramana and the other half on Kabas. So far, 11 civilians have been killed in the eastern part of Damascus and Jaramana, including a child and a woman, while dozens others were wounded, according to Majd, a Jaramana resident.

Almost 50 people have been killed by Syrian government air strikes in an opposition-held town, activists say. Six children were among those who died as Talbiseh, in Homs province, was bombarded for two days, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported. The air strikes of Talbiseh reportedly began on Monday and continued into Tuesday. State media said the army had targeted a meeting of “terrorists”. The death toll from the bombardment was expected to rise because bodies were still being pulled out of the rubble and dozens of people, including children, were critically injured, the Observatory said

Syria Headline:   Fresh surge of violence hit Syria’s Kobane

The Islamic State (IS/ISIS), an al-Qaeda offshoot, took control of two villages in the western countryside of the city of  Kobane in Aleppo province, northern Syria, on Monday evening. However, the Kurdish forces of the Popular Protection Units (YPG) regained control of the villages after clashes with IS militant fighters on Tuesday, local sources told ARA News. One of the displaced villagers stated to ARA News that the YPG (military arm of the Democratic Union Party ‘PYD’) withdrew from the village of Zeerik and parts of Taalik in the western countryside of Kobane, after violent clashes with militants of the Islamic State, to counter-attack the militants on Tuesday. “These villages evacuated the women and children, while the majority of men remained to defend their villages, where they were able ــ with the support of the YPG forces ــ to regain control of the villages after hours of IS control,” the source added. Meanwhile, militant fighters of IS reportedly bombarded with artillery and heavy mortar the YPG-held villages of Dhakirman and Handrails in western Kobane on Tuesday evening, causing extensive structural damage, but no casualties were reported. On the other hand, local activists from the city of Kobane told ARA News that the eastern countryside of Kobane experienced a heavy assault by the Islamic State group with tanks and machine guns. “The shelling (which targeted the villages of Serzouri, Koperlik, Qaza Ali, and al-Jirin) was coupled with violent clashes during which one of the IS-led tanks was destroyed by the YPG fighters,” activists said. In related developments, IS continued shelling the village of Tel Seifi and the surrounding areas in the southern countryside of Kobane with heavy guns for the third consecutive day. Observers described the recent attacks by the Islamic State on the countryside of Kobane as the heaviest since the start of the battles between them and the YPG six months ago.

Syria Headline:   US strikes in Syria won’t turn locals against Islamic State

Hell is inescapable. With the terror of living under regime or rebel bombing, Islamic State (IS) barbarism and the nightmarish destitution of refugee camps and death boats adrift at sea, hell is the price of being Syrian today. “This is the Syrian’s lot,” Abu Riad told Al-Monitor, “we are destined never to find peace except in our graves.” Abu Riad is a relative I recently visited near the town of Al-Bab east of Aleppo in the heart of IS territory. He echoed the fear of many others now that the United States has put together a collation to wage war on the terror group, a war that will likely involve airstrikes against targets in Syria and inevitably cause more carnage and loss of innocent life. In Abu Riad’s words, “We have been living in absolute terror for a week now under regime airstrikes. Now we have the Americans coming to bomb us too. Where do we go? Why is everyone killing us; what have we done to deserve this?” Indeed, Al-Bab has suffered heavy barrel bombing in the past few days, resulting in many casualties, which prompted me to avoid going to the town altogether and remain in the relative safety of rural areas. Caught between the hammer of regime bombings and the anvil of imminent US airstrikes, many people have started doing the same, fleeing the towns for safer areas. Even IS, as reported by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, has begun to evacuate its headquarters to avoid putting people’s lives at risk, or at least that is what the group claims. Regardless, it would be foolish to believe that US military action against IS is popular here or will go down well, especially when civilian casualties start to mount. On the contrary, it will most likely prove counterproductive, stoking anti-Western resentment among the population and increasing support for IS, driving even more recruits to its ranks.

Iraq Headline: Top general says half of Iraqi army incapable of working with US against ISIS

The U.S. military’s top officer said Wednesday that almost half of Iraq’s army is incapable of working  against the Islamic State militant group, while the other half needs to be rebuilt with the help of U.S. advisers and military equipment. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey made the remarks to reporters while traveling to Paris to meet with his French counterpart to discuss the situation in Iraq and Syria. The general said that U.S. assessors who had spent the summer observing Iraq’s security forces concluded that 26 of the army’s 50 brigades would be capable of confronting the Islamic State, also known as ISIS. Dempsey described those brigades as well-led, capable, and endowed with a nationalist instinct, as opposed to a sectarian instinct. However, Dempsey said that the other 24 brigades were too heavily populated with Shiites to be part of a credible force against the Sunni ISIS.

Iraq Headline: Coalition should strike ISIS in Syria also: Iraq PM

Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi said on Wednesday the international community must stop militants belong to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in the two countries it is operating in, not just Iraq. “The fight will go on unless ISIS is hit in Syria,” he said, using an acronym for the group. “This is the responsibility of the international community – on top of them the United States government – to do something about ISIS in Syria,” he told the Associated Press in an interview. His comments come a day after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad met in Damascus with Iraq’s National Security Adviser Falah al-Fayadh, who updated the embattled leader “on efforts by the Iraqi government to confront terrorism.” “We cannot afford to fight our neighbor, even if we disagree on many things,” Abadi said. “This is our neighbor. We don’t want to enter into problems with them. For us sovereignty of Syria is very important.”

Iraq Headline: Iraqi PM says no to foreign ground troops in Islamic State fight

Iraq’s new leader told the Associated Press on Wednesday that foreign ground troops are unwanted and unnecessary in his country’s fight against the Islamic State militant group. Prime Minister Haider Abadi’s comments came a day after Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, repeatedly raised the prospect of sending U.S. troops to fight alongside Iraqi soldiers against the Islamic State, despite President Obama’s vows not to do so. Dempsey told the Senate Armed Services Committee that he would recommend using U.S. ground troops if he deemed it necessary to rescue a downed pilot, to call in airstrikes to assist Iraqi and Kurdish forces, or to help achieve a key military objective, such as freeing the captured city of Mosul. “If we reach the point where I believe our advisors should accompany Iraqi troops on attacks against specific ISIL targets, I’ll recommend that to the president,” Dempsey said at the top of his prepared testimony, using one of several abbreviations for Islamic State. Abadi told the AP that U.S. airstrikes have been helpful in the country’s efforts to stem the attacks of the group, which has taken over parts of Iraq, but said the help of ground soldiers is “out of the question.” Abadi took office on Sept. 8. “We don’t want them,” he told the AP. “We won’t allow them. Full stop.”

Iraq Headline: Iraqi army launches offensive on Islamic State in three cities

Iraq Headline: Seven killed in suicide attack in Ramadi Iraq

Iraqi forces launched an intense military operation against Islamic State insurgents in three cities in central Iraq on Wednesday, fighting to regain control of lost ground, security sources said. The offensives in Ramadi, Falluja and Haditha in the western province of Anbar started before dawn, security sources in the three cities said. Sunni tribes revolted in these areas in late 2013 when Iraq’s former prime minister Nuri al-Maliki moved his forces into the cities to suppress a year-long anti-government protest movement. Islamic State insurgents then entered the cities and became the dominate force over the course of several months’ fighting against the Shi’ite-led government. Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi promised last week to end Iraqi strikes on cities to reduce civilian casualties. Wednesday’s attacks were on outlying suburbs of the three cities.

Kurdish Headline:    Erbil and Baghdad Close to Oil Agreement

At least 3 million barrels of Iraqi Kurdish oil are on ships heading to Asia, with trade sources naming China as a possible destination as the autonomous region expands efforts to establish independent oil sales in defiance of Baghdad. Two sources with knowledge of the matter said Iraqi Kurdistan was in talks to potentially supply China with 4 million barrels of oil. Reuters was unable to identify the Chinese parties involved in the talks, which the sources declined to name, and it was not clear if the cargoes currently on the water were part of the discussions. A deal could place Beijing on a collision course with Baghdad, one of its major crude oil suppliers, which has tried to block the Kurdish sales that it says are illegal. The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) argues they are allowed under the Iraqi constitution. “The Kurds are in the process of negotiations with the Chinese,” said one of the sources, who asked not to be identified due to the sensitivity of the matter. “China is buying up multiple origins of oil. So, there is not an issue from that side,” the source added. “It will come down to price.”

Kurdish Headline:    Fight against IS helps PKK gain global legitimacy

Kurdish Headline:    Syrian Kurds join Iraqi Peshmerga to fight Islamic State

As the United States presses ahead with assembling an international coalition to “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State (IS), two potentially critical players are coming to the fore: the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and its Syrian Kurdish franchise, the People’s Protection Units (YPG). The PKK and YPG have proven to be the most effective forces in the battle against IS both in Iraq and in Syria, never so much as when they shepherded tens of thousands of Yazidi Kurds marooned on Mount Sinjar, in northwestern Iraq, to safety and helped Iraqi peshmerga retake the town of Makhmour. The PKK and YPG are pro-secular, if quasi Marxist, in ideology. The latter has never targeted the West, and although the PKK has been fighting Turkey, a NATO member, on and off since 1984 for Kurdish self-rule, a cease-fire declared in March 2013 remains in effect. Moreover, both groups claim they are eager to cooperate with the West. So, what better local partners for the anti-jihadist alliance than them? This question is being pondered by European Union (EU) governments and US officials, senior Western officials speaking on condition of anonymity told Al-Monitor. All stressed, however, that for now the debate was, as one put it, “of a purely ‘what if’ nature.” “The problem is Turkey,” explained one of the officials, echoing concerns of a likely backlash from the Turkish government. Turkey branded the PKK as “terrorists,” and the label was adopted by the EU and Washington. The PKK is on both their lists of officially designated terrorist groups and has been accused of money laundering and drug trafficking. IS’ dizzying gains, however, have dramatically altered the security landscape across Syria and Iraq. “You’ve got to pick your poison. It’s either [IS] or the PKK,” the same official stated.

Headline:    New Recruits Flock To ISIS Following Obama Speech

Headline:  U.S. airstrikes boost Islamic State, more hostages possible: FBI

The Islamic State terrorist group has seen an uptick in recruits following president Obama’s address last week, when he indicated that airstrikes to combat the extremists would be expanded from Iraq to Syria. The intelligence comes via The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an independent group monitoring all aspects of the conflict within the country. The group indicated that 162 people had attended two separate training camps set up by ISIS in Aleppo province in the last week alone. Among the recruits, according to the Observatory, were four Australian nationals, as well as 15 non-Syrian Arabs who entered the country across the Turkish border. The remaining new recruits are Syrians, and most former fighters with the Syrian al Qaeda affiliate The Nusra Front, which has been going up against ISIS in a battle for regional supremacy. As was widely reported last week, ISIS militants and so called ‘moderate’ Syrian rebels signed a non-aggression pact. In addition, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb have set about a campaign to unite the rival militant groups in Iraq and Syria against the U.S.-led alliance and Shi-ite fighters. According to Rami Abdulrahman, the head of the Observatory, ISIS now has more than 50,000 fighters in Syria alone. That figure is double the estimate of Western intelligence agencies which have pitched the number of fighters at 20,000 to 30,000 in BOTH Syria and Iraq combined.

Russia on Tuesday accused the West of ignoring its warnings about the growing terrorist threat in Syria, and claimed that the moderate rebel front – the one the Obama administration wants to arm as part of its anti-ISIS strategy – “no longer exists.” The remarks by Russia’s ambassador in Geneva Alexey Borodavkin came during a session of the U.N. Human Rights Council, which was discussing the most recent report by a U.N.-mandated independent commission of inquiry into the conflict. The report, released late last month and roughly covering the first half of this year, recorded atrocities by the Assad regime and by some of its opponents, including the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL). “The commission in its report,” Borodavkin told the council through a translator, “recognizes that the Syrian government is working against a huge army of trained armed terrorists.” “The Free Syrian Army no longer exists,” he continued. “Armed groups qualified as ‘moderate’ are closely coordinating their activities with terrorist groups.”

According to the Iranian Shafaq News website, Jafari said in a news conference that America “feels despair” over what IS does and its influential role, so it is trying “to establish this alliance and we doubt its seriousness about eliminating ISIS.” Jafari further claimed that the United States declared war on IS only yet still supports some of the opposition groups in Syria, stressing that the United States will “regret its attack on Syria.” He also said that he considered the presence of Americans in Iraq as aiming to support the Kurds in the north. The comments come a day after Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said his country had rejected a U.S. request for cooperation against the IS because Washington has “dirty hands”. “Right from the start, the United States asked through its ambassador in Iraq whether we could cooperate against [IS],” Khamenei said in a statement on his official website. “I said no, because they have dirty hands,” said Khamenei, who has the final say on all matters of state in Iran.

On Tuesday, Iranian Forces General Commander Mohammed Ali Jaafari presented a speech in Tehran in recognition of Armed Forces Day. “The US feels they were defeated in Iraq in the past, so they have now formed an international alliance against these IS militants. The presence of the US in Iraq is only to protect Kurds,” said Jaafari.

Headline:    Two American troops among dead in Afghanistan suicide bombing

Two American troops and a Polish service member were killed Tuesday when a Taliban suicide car bomber attacked a foreign motorcade just a couple hundred yards from the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, Fox News confirms. The NATO-led international military coalition in Afghanistan said five others were wounded in the attack. Security forces in full battle gear administered CPR to wounded comrades shortly after the 8:10 a.m. blast, which rattled nearby neighborhoods and sent a plume of smoke high into the sky. The attack – which the Taliban claimed responsibility for — happened on a main Kabul road that leads to the airport, next to an ISAF base that houses many Americans.

Headline:  South Sudan wants to kick out foreign aid workers, even as a devastating famine looms

On Tuesday, South Sudanese authorities announced that they are planning to ban foreign workers by Oct. 15 — a move that could also affect foreigners employed by aid agencies. The report comes amid a rapidly deteriorating food security situation in the East African country, which has suffered through months of civil war. In late July, the U.N. Security Council expressed “grave concern” about the situation and described it as “currently … the worst [food insecurity situation] in the world.” About 50,000 children could die, the United Nations warned, and more than one-third of South Sudan’s population is dangerously threatened. Despite being heavily dependent on foreign aid, the South Sudanese government made the surprising announcement that it would attempt to fill many jobs currently occupied by foreigners with “competent South Sudanese nationals,” according to the Agence France-Presse news agency. Foreign aid agencies, hosting the world’s largest humanitarian operation, would be strongly affected by the proposed rule. Tensions between aid agencies and the South Sudanese government have risen for months. Matthew Herrick, a spokesman for the U.S. Agency for International Development, told The Post in August that the government of South Sudan and the opposition had utterly failed and put millions of people on the brink of famine. Only their commitment to true peace, reconciliation and accountability will end this crisis and give donors access to the affected conflict areas, Herrick said.

Headline:   Libya Islamists launch new assault on Benghazi airport

At least nine people have been killed in Libya in heavy fighting between forces loyal to renegade General Khalifa Haftar and armed Salafi militiamen in the restive eastern city of Benghazi. A hospital medic, speaking on condition of anonymity, said nine soldiers were killed and 30 were wounded when militiamen made a new push to approach the civilian and military airport of the city on Tuesday. “We are still controlling the airport,” Saqer al-Jouroushi, Haftar’s air defense commander said, adding that his troops had managed to ready four old helicopters and four MiG fighter jets. Militiamen are trying to snatch the Benghazi airport from the control of government troops allied with Haftar. Islamist fighters launched another offensive Wednesday on the airport in Libya’s Benghazi, the final redoubt in the eastern city of an ex-general who has been waging war on them, an AFP correspondent said. The fighters of the Shura Revolutionary Council, which includes the Islamist Ansar al-Shariah group, have been trying since early September to capture the facility, which houses both civilian and military airfields.

Headline:  Libya, neighbor nations snub military intervention

Libya’s struggling elected government and representatives of 15 neighboring nations on Wednesday unanimously rejected the idea of military intervention as a way to restore stability in the oil-rich nation, which some say is on the brink of civil war. Meeting in Madrid, officials from countries surrounding Libya and to its north across the Mediterranean concluded “there is no military solution to the current crisis.” But Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo warned that the status quo puts Libya in a position where it could slide into a Syria-style civil war. Libya currently has two rival parliaments and governments. One is recently elected but based in Tobruk, where it moved after Islamist militias took control of both Tripoli and Libya’s second-largest city, Benghazi. The previous Islamist-led parliament remains in Tripoli and is backed by the militias. Libya Foreign Minister Mohamed Abdulaziz offered no specifics on how his government could regain control of Tripoli but said he did not believe a recent series of mysterious airstrikes in Libya or future airstrikes would shift the balance of power. “We are convinced that is impossible for us to overcome terrorism only through air strikes,” Abdulaziz told reporters.

Lamamra added, “Algeria’s position is clear. It calls for a national dialogue and national reconciliation in Libya, and to give the elected institutions the chance to gain more legitimacy through reunification.” “The Libyan crisis is a complex one and Algeria considers it an internal matter and will not interfere in it; however Algeria, out of its rich history with Libya, will not stand idle at a time when the crisis in Libya deepens,” he said.

Headline:    Turkish sanctuary for MB leaders may further strain regional relations

Qatar and Turkey, the two leading supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, have formed a strategic alliance. Qatar and Turkey agreed to establish a strategic cooperation council that would enhance coordination in the Middle East. The council was decided during the visit to Doha by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, hosted by Qatar’s Emir Tamim. This marked the third visit by Erdogan to Qatar since he became president in August 2014. “They agreed to set up a supreme strategic cooperation council under the co-chairmanship of His Highness the emir and the Turkish president to discuss means of promoting relations between the two countries and to follow up issues in various fields,” an official statement said on Sept. 15. Officials said the strategic council would develop cooperation between Ankara and Turkey. They said all issues would be addressed, including conflicts throughout the region. Qatar and Turkey have been among the last Middle East supporters of the Brotherhood, outlawed in Egypt and several Gulf Cooperation Council states. Officials said Erdogan and Tamim also discussed Turkish assistance for Qatar’s military and security forces. They said Turkish officials reviewed proposals with Qatari Interior Minister Abdullah Bin Nasser Bin Khalifa. Turkey has also pressed Qatar to supply 1.2 billion cubic meters of natural gas. “During the session HH the emir and the Turkish president reviewed relations between the two counties and means of developing them,” the statement said. “In addition, they reviewed areas of mutual cooperation at various levels and to develop them for the good of the two peoples.”

Headline:  U.N. to dump flood of Muslim refugees on U.S.

Headline:   New York man accused of trying to recruit, aid ISIS militants

Displaced Syrians will likely make up the next big wave of Muslim refugees coming to America. Since the early 1990s, the United Nations high commissioner for refugees has selected 200,000 to 250,000 refugees from Islamic countries to be resettled in the United States. Most of them have come from Somalia and Iraq. Syria could soon be added to the mix in the midst of that country’s brutal civil war. The Obama administration has been greasing the skids for the Syrian refugees for months, WND has learned, and the refugees will soon be dumped on American cities throughout the U.S. In February, the State Department moved to ease the rules that protect the U.S. from accepting refugees with potential ties to terrorist organizations. The rules were seen as “too strict” by the refugee-resettlement groups that lobby Congress and the administration to continuously let in more Muslims from the war-torn Middle East. Then on Sept. 4, a U.S. State Department spokeswoman hinted at her daily press briefing that a new wave of refugees will soon be coming from another predominantly Muslim nation – Syria. “The United Nations high commissioner for refugees just this year started referring Syrian refugees to the United States for processing,” said Marie Harf. “Obviously, we have several thousand in the pipeline, and that number will continue to go up.” Obama’s State Department is expected to present Congress with a list within the next two weeks that shows the total number of foreign refugees it wants to accept into the country over the next year and the countries from which they will come. The new fiscal year begins Oct. 1.

Al Qaida’s South Asia wing has claimed responsibility for hijacking a Pakistani naval ship and trying to use it to fire rockets at U.S. vessels in the Arabian Sea, in the first major assault by the newly created group. The SITE monitoring service quoted its spokesman, Usama Mahmoud, as saying a group of militants had succeeded in seizing control of the Pakistani frigate PNS Zulfiqar and tried to use it to attack nearby U.S. vessels. “These mujahideen had taken control of the Pakistani ship, and they were advancing towards the American fleet when the Pakistani army stopped them,” he said. “As a result, the mujahideen, the lions of Allah and benefactors of the Ummah, sacrificed their lives for Allah, and the Pakistani soldiers spoiled their hereafter by giving up their lives in defence of the enemies of the Ummah the Americans.” SITE said Mahmoud’s statement also provided a picture and a detailed layout of the PNS Zulfiqar. The navy and the army’s press wing were not immediately available for comment.

Headline: Moscow warns against panic as ruble plunges to historic lows

Headline:  Russia Takes Double Punch as Vanishing Workers Fan Prices

Russian authorities told people not to panic on Tuesday as the battered ruble plunged to record lows, floored by tensions with the West over Ukraine, new sanctions and falling oil prices. The national currency fell to 38.82 rubles per dollar after weakening on Monday to below 38 against the dollar for the first time. It also broke through the symbolic level of 50 rubles per euro for the first time in several months. The ruble has slumped as investors fret about the impact of ever more stringent Western sanctions on the economy, which is already teetering on the verge of recession. Ordinary Russians said they were concerned that a weaker ruble would drive up inflation and make foreign trips and foreign currency-denominated purchases an increasingly unaffordable luxury. Deputy Finance Minister Alexei Moiseyev sought to put on a brave face, saying authorities were taking steps to curb inflation. “Don’t panic,” he said.

He said the response was the largest in the Centers’ 68-year history and that the Defense Department was chosen to lead field operations because it was “better that any other organization on earth” in such efforts. “It’s spreading out of control,” Obama said. “We have to act fast. We cannot dawdle on this one. We have to move with force.” Published reports earlier in the day said Obama would announce that he was sending 3,000 military personnel. But he did not say in his roughly 15-minute announcement how many people would be deployed.

Headline:     FBI’s facial recognition system will combine faces of criminals and ordinary citizens

THE FBI has launched its “next generation” facial recognition system — and the implications are terrifying. It not only draws on a database of criminal mugshots, it searches through ordinary people too. Anyone who has ever had a background check when applying for a job could be identified in a police hunt. And the system is hardly infallible — a search will pull up 50 faces, with only an 85 per cent likelihood that the suspect will be on list, by the FBI’s own estimation. The Interstate Photo System is expected to have reached 50 states by the end of the year, and have collected 52 million faces by 2015. “This effort is a significant step forward for the criminal justice community in utilising biometrics as an investigative enabler,” the FBI said in a statement. And it may not be long until Australian biometrics become this far-reaching.

Headline:    Tropical Storm Odile expected to hit Arizona with heavy winds, rain

Mexico’s government airlifted thousands of stranded foreign tourists out of the hurricane-ravaged resort of Los Cabos, as a weakened Odile headed over the Gulf of California Wednesday on a path toward the U.S. state of Arizona. The remnants of Odile, which has been downgraded from a Category 3 hurricane to a tropical storm, were expected to reach Arizona Wednesday evening and strike hardest in the Tucson area, though forecasters said Phoenix could get lashed with rain and heavy winds as well. In Mexico, military and commercial planes were carrying travelers out through the Los Cabos international airport, which remained closed to commercial flights due to damage suffered when Odile tore through the area late Sunday and Monday. Travelers were being flown free of charge to airports in Tijuana, Mazatlan, Guadalajara and Mexico City to catch connecting flights and, in the case of foreigners, receive consular assistance.

Headline:  It’s Already Erupting, But Not Explosive’: Lava Flows From Philippine Volcano; Thousands Flee

The Philippines’ most active volcano has sent more huge lava fragments rolling down its slopes in an ongoing gentle eruption that has prompted authorities to evacuate thousands of villagers, officials said Wednesday. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology has warned that a “hazardous eruption” of Mount Mayon, located in the eastern Philippines, is possible within weeks. Increased restiveness was recorded overnight, including 270 incidents of lava fragments and super-hot boulders rolling down from Mayon’s crater — nearly four times the number recorded the previous day. Some reached the upper portion of a gully on the volcano’s southeastern side, indicating that the lava dome has breached that side of the crater. The number of low-frequency volcanic earthquakes also increased. Molten lava has accumulated at the top of the 2,460-meter (8,070-foot) volcano’s crater, creating a glow in the night sky that sparked both awe and fear among spectators. “It’s already erupting, but not explosive,” said Renato Solidum, who heads the government’s volcano monitoring agency. “Currently, the activity is just lava coming down. If there is an explosion, all sides of the volcano are threatened.”

Headline: IDF concerned of possible Hezbollah invasion of northern Israel

Northern Command says Shiite terror group threatening to send forces across the border in first few days of a third Lebanon war. Hezbollah may implement its plan to invade northern Israel if a third Lebanon war breaks out, according to an estimate by the IDF Northern Command. Sources in Israel have identified a change in the Shiite terror group’s policies, which Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has defined as “breaking the silence.” There was no concrete warning of an immediate threat by Hezbollah to launch a war against Israel or a surprise ground invasion, but the concern that a single event – with casualties – may flare up and lead, in quick succession, to the outbreak of war on the northern front. According to the IDF estimates, Hezbollah has gathered the confidence necessary to attempt an invasion operation – as it managed with force on the border towns between Syrian and Lebanon, in al-Qusayr, Arsal, and the Qalamoun Mountains. As opposed to its previous modus operandi, in which pointed attacks were carried out by small cells numbering less than a dozen people, the new estimates fear that operations would be wide-ranging and include a blitz by at least 100 fighters in order to hold an Israeli position for three to four hours. The possibilities include the seizure of part of a town, a mountain ridge, or an IDF outpost – all in order to achieve an unprecedented symbolic victory for Hezbollah.

Headline: Likud Decides Without PM to Topple Hamas in Next Operation

Hundreds of Likud members took part in a meeting of the party’s Central Committee in Ashkelon on Monday, where they passed a party proposal obligating the toppling the Hamas terrorist organization in Gaza in the next counter-terror operation. “We must rehabilitate our deterrence, and in the next round destroy Hamas – there must be a clear decisive (blow),” said Likud Central Committee Chairman MK Danny Danon at the event. The statement refers to the perceived lack of decisive military action in Operation Protective Edge, the third such operation in Gaza, which ended with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu sealing a ceasefire with Hamas that coincided with a nose-dive in his approval ratings. Netanyahu himself was absent at the meeting Monday, instead taking part in a meeting of Likud activists in Petah Tikva that he arranged to conflict with the Central Committee meeting so as not to be present.

Headline: Report: Abbas Will Ask France to Recognize ‘Palestine’

Headline: PA fears Islamic State threat taking world’s attention away from Palestinian issue

According to Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an, Palestinian Authority (PA) chief Mahmoud Abbas will ask French president Francois Hollande to recognize the “state of Palestine” when Abbas meets Hollande in France Friday. According to the report, Abbas will then ask additional European countries to recognize “Palestine” even before he heads for the annual United Nations General Assembly. PA foreign minister Riad Al Maliki told Ma’an that “the international situation now is much better than in the past, and there is a better chance that the Palestinian people’s demands will be met.” Maliki added that “the world is now conviced, more than in the past, that Israel undermines international efforts for peace by constructing settlements.” “Because of the diplomatic stalemate, we will say at the Security Council that this is the time to take a clear stand that will lead to the end of the occupation,” he explained. According to Maliki, European countries are gradually becoming convinced that Abbas is following the right path. Meanwhile, without a DROP of concern for their Muslim brethren, The Palestinian Authority has expressed concern that the international coalition against Islamic State would divert attention from the Palestinian issue. PA President Mahmoud Abbas chaired a meeting of the Palestinian leadership in Ramallah over the weekend to discuss the US efforts to form a coalition to fight Islamic State terrorists in Iraq and Syria. Following the meeting, the Palestinian leaders said the “international campaign against terrorism was currently lacking a political dimension that would address the issues of the region.” They also warned that the campaign did not deal with the “core and central issue, which is the Palestinian cause, so that it would be able to dry up the sources that feed terrorism and extremism.” The Palestinian leaders called on Arab, regional and international parties to insist on linking their anti-terrorism campaign to a political dimension and not to focus solely on military and security aspects. Nabil Abu Rudaineh, spokesman for the PA presidency, said that without solving the Palestinian issue “there would be no solutions for the problems of the region.” Abu Rudaineh added that any regional alliances should lead to “ending the occupation and preserving the national rights of the Palestinians.

Headline: Israelis Warned of Heightened Terror Threat Abroad

Headline: ISIS may target Israelis, Jews abroad, Counter-Terrorism Bureau warns

The Israeli National Security Council’s Counter-Terrorism Bureau has warned of the increased likelihood of terror attacks targeting Israeli and Jewish targets in the run up to the High Holy Days, highlighting western Europe as an area of particular concern. In a report issued Monday assessing global terror threats, the Bureau noted the significant danger of western nationals currently fighting abroad for global jihadi groups, including Al Qaeda and the “Islamic State” (ISIS), returning to their home countries to commit terrorist attacks. It cited the example of Mehdi Nemmouche, the French-Algerian former ISIS fighter and torturer, who returned to Europe and is believed to have carried out a deadly shooting at the Brussels Jewish Museum, which killed four people including two Israelis. Nemmouche is said to have planned a much larger terror attack to take place in Paris, but was apprehended before he could carry it out. Some 2,000 of ISIS’s fighters are thought to hail from western states, and many have indeed returned home already. According to British authorities for example, of the 500 or so UK nationals who traveled to fight for the Islamic State, roughly half have already returned home – 40 of whom have been arrested.

Headline: Al Qaeda Flags Continue to Fly Near Temple Mount

Flags of the Al Qaeda terror group are flying atop the Kotel Hakatan (“Small Kotel”), a remnant of the retaining wall of the Temple Mount that is a continuation of the Western Wall, located in the Muslim Quarter. The Kotel Hakatan is adjacent to one of the entrances to the Temple Mount. Meanwhile, said Avichail Weizmann, a resident of the Old City and a student at Hakotel Yeshiva in the Jewish Quarter, municipal signs and other symbols of Israeli sovereignty are torn down or destroyed on a regular basis, and that includes signs in the area of the Kotel Hakatan, which he visits frequently. Speaking to Arutz Sheva, Weizmann said that he had contacted city officials numerous times about the issue, but so far to no avail. Two weeks ago, Weizmann said that he noticed several flags with Arabic writing flying over the Kotel Hakatan – a flag which turned out to be the symbol of Al Qaeda. He filed a complaint with police, which sent out an investigator – who concluded that the flags were actually signs of a “religious nature” and as such none of the police department’s business. According to Weizmann, the flags are stil there.

On September 11, 2014, individuals or a group in Mexico hung a message to America over the U.S.-Mexico border wall condemning American support for Israel and declaring support for Palestine. U.S. federal agents discovered the banner draped over the primary border fence in Arizona’s Yuma Sector in a restricted area that could only have been reached from Mexico. The message also contained an image described by authorities as an anarchist symbol. The incident was kept secret from the American public by federal authorities. Breitbart Texas exclusively obtained the leaked incident report from federal agents on the condition their identities remain private. The leaked incident report reveals that U.S. Border Patrol agents discovered the banner in the early hours of September 12, 2014, indicating that the banner had been draped over the border wall late in the night on September 11th.

Headline: Islamic State secretly near Israel border, Syrian rebel group says

***This is not news to us as we know that Al-Nusra has pledged allegiance to ISIS

The Islamic State terror group is operating sleeper cells in southern Syria near the border with Israel, a spokesman for the opposition’s Free Syrian Army charged Sunday. The spokesman, speaking to The Times of Israel on condition of anonymity, as he was not authorized to communicate with Israeli media, said that some of the 6,000 Islamist fighters who fled southward toward the borders with Israel and Jordan in July actually belong to the Islamic State, not to the less extreme Nusra Front as previously believed. “There are sleeper cells in the south, which are hidden. They don’t do anything [military] at all,” the spokesman said of IS. “Many people [in the moderate Syrian opposition] are following them and will strike at them before they organize.”

According to the intelligence agency of the Free Syrian Army, Islamic State activists would approach individuals in the area, offering them basic food staples or financial aid. “They say: ‘Stay at home, no one will know about you. The moment we need you, we’ll call.’” The spokesman said that many locals refused the IS overtures, but that could change given the region’s grave poverty. Prices have skyrocketed recently, he added, with a liter of diesel fuel costing $15, for example. Two villages where IS representatives made such proposals are Hayt and Sahem Al-Jawlan, near the Syrian-Jordanian border, the spokesman said.  “They were sent by the Islamic State to control the largest portion of land possible,” he said. “We are against them wholeheartedly. They have nothing to do with Islam, which they merely use as a cover.”

The unit’s mandate will be changed by law to authorize it to operate anywhere “the government of Israel sees fit,” whether within Israel’s borders or beyond them, and it will be beefed up by an extra company — about 100 people — in light of the threat of terrorist infiltrations along both the southern and the northern borders. “For 40 years, Yamam fighters have protected Israel’s citizens,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at a recent ceremony marking the 40th anniversary of the unit’s establishment. “It’s an elite unit, one of the best in the world, which is one of the pillars of Israel’s security. Yamam’s fighters operate in the shadows, but they bring a great deal of light to Israel’s citizens.”

Headline:  Jordan BDS Statement on Gas Deal with Israel

Headline: Israeli Minister confirms Israel would aid Jordan against IS

Jordan BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel) expresses deep concern and opposition to the finalization of a recent gas deal between Jordan and Israel. The proposed deal comes in the aftermath of Israeli’s morally reprehensible attack on Gaza, which left over 2,100 Palestinians killed, and 11,000 injured, the vast majority of them civilians. This opposition is joined by the vast majority of the Jordanian public who share Jordan BDS principled objection to working with Israel. Most importantly, the gas-purchase agreement is not in Jordan’s long-term strategic interest. We question the wisdom of tying our energy future with a supplier who has failed consistently to adhere to international morality. Our opposition comes primarily out of fear for Jordan’s long-term strategic interests. Despite the economic necessity argument being used, the fact remains that there are major geopolitical implications for this deal that easily overshadow all potential economic benefits. If the agreement is finalized, it would make Jordan dependent on Israel for its energy needs, and would grant immeasurable political and economic leverage to Israel over our country, depriving us much of our independence.

Headline:   Hezbollah slams Lebanon FM for siding with Arab states in fighting ISIS

Lebanon’s Hezbollah has expressed strong reservations about Beirut’s signing of the Jeddah Communique pledging regional military cooperation against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), with sources close to the group warning that the agreement both goes too far and does not do enough to confront the Islamist terrorist group. Lebanon’s Hezbollah-led March 8 Alliance called on Beirut to provide “clarification” regarding the future Lebanese role in the international coalition being assembled to confront ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Speaking to Asharq Al-Awsat on the condition of anonymity, a source close to Hezbollah said: “Lebanon’s official position in terms of its commitment to the fight against terror has been clear since 2000.” The source said that any additional responsibilities must be taken “within the framework of a clear plan that determines Lebanon’s role,” criticizing the Jeddah Communique’s vague language. He added that Hezbollah considers Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil’s signing of the communique as non-binding until an official clarification is issued by the Beirut government. By merely attending the Jeddah meeting Bassil had “buried” Lebanon’s “unrealistic” policy of self-distancing, the Hezbollah source maintained.

Israel’s intelligence community has determined that the Iranian-sponsored Hizbullah built a huge long-range rocket arsenal. The intelligence community has assessed that Hizbullah was focusing on the procurement of rockets with a range of more than 100 kilometers. In a recent assessment to the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, intelligence agencies concluded that Hizbullah amassed an Iranian-origin long-range arsenal of at least 5,000 rockets. “This arsenal could strike deep inside Israel and is larger than most countries in the Middle East,” an Israeli source said. The source said the intelligence community has traced the long-range rocket arsenal to underground facilities in Beirut as well as the Bekaa Valley. The assessment asserted that much of the arsenal consisted of the Fatah-110, with a range of more than 200 kilometers. “These are precision-guided rockets with a warhead of at least one ton,” the source said. “They could strike virtually any target in Israel.”

Headline: Egypt Kills 7 Jihadists in Sinai

Seven jihadists were killed in a shootout in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula during a joint operation by police and the army, Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim said Sunday, according to AFP. The seven men were among “the most dangerous elements of Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis” and had taken part in a July attack on a border post with Libya that killed 22 soldiers, he was quoted as having told a news conference. The minister did not give a date for the operation. Based in the northern Sinai, the Al-Qaeda-inspired Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis has spearheaded attacks that have killed scores of policemen and soldiers since the army overthrew Islamist president Mohammed Morsi in July 2013. It says the attacks are to avenge the killing of pro-Morsi protesters by the army and police, a crackdown which has left at least 1,400 dead.  The group has also claimed responsibility for several rocket attacks that targeted the Israeli resort city of Eilat.

Syria Headline:    US covertly giving Assad intel on Islamic State, regime daily claims

President Barack Obama would seek to overthrow the regime of Bashar al-Assad if American planes were attacked upon entering Syrian air space, Peter Baker of The New York Times reports. If Assad’s troops fired at American planes entering Syrian airspace, “Obama said he would order American forces to wipe out Syria’s air defense system,” Baker reports. “He went on to say that such an action by Mr. Assad would lead to his overthrow, according to one account.” Meanwhile, Al-Watan reports that accurate American information conveyed via third countries has allowed Syria to target senior jihadists. The United States is providing the Assad regime with accurate intelligence on Islamic State targets in Syria through a third country, a Syrian regime daily reported on Monday, contradicting American claims that no such cooperation existed. Quoting unnamed diplomatic sources in Paris, Al-Watan reported that Syria has received “very accurate information” from a foreign intelligence agency over the past weeks regarding movements and meetings of Islamic State leaders in Syria. Based on that intelligence, the daily reported, Syrian aircraft attacked the location of the leaders and “hit the targets with precision.” Al-Watan claimed the information originated in the US, and may have been conveyed via “Baghdad, Moscow, Berlin, or even the military command center located in Irbil (in northern Iraq).” No comment was available from the US State Department at time of publication.

Syria Headline:    Republican Syria-Rebel Aid Plan Said to Include Controls

U.S. House Republican leaders are drafting legislation to grant President Barack Obama’s request to arm and equip Syrian rebels while also requiring controls including progress reports to Congress, a House aide said. The provision probably will be offered as an amendment to a must-pass bill to fund the government through Dec. 11, said two House Republican aides who sought anonymity to discuss the plans. The approach is intended to win the support of lawmakers who want a separate vote on the Syria aid. Obama, in a Sept. 10 televised address, asked Congress to authorize help for Syrian rebels combating the Sunni extremist group Islamic State, which has swept from Syria deep into Iraq with a campaign of terror that included the beheading of two U.S. journalists and a British aid worker. No U.S. ground troops will be needed, the president said. Under the plan, the Defense Department would be required to report to Congress 15 days before putting its proposal into effect and demonstrate how it would work, the first House aide said. Every 90 days afterward, the Defense Department would have to provide information on vetting of Syrian rebels who receive help, in an effort to ensure that U.S. equipment doesn’t fall into terrorists’ hands, the House aide said.

Syria Headline:    Syrian FM: Qatar directly supports Nusra kidnappings

Qatar is responsible for kidnappings by the Nusra Front, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said Sunday, as an official Lebanese delegation held talks in Doha over negotiations to secure the release of 22 policemen and soldiers held by militants. “Terrorists from the Nusra Front would not have committed the crime of kidnapping had it not been for direct support from Qatari forces,” the ministry said in a statement. Qatar is helping negotiate the release of Lebanese security personnel and soldiers captured by Nusra militants in Arsal and later handed over to Islamic State radicals who have since beheaded two of the soldiers. The Syrian statement argued that by paying large sums to militants to secure the released of abducted security and military personnel, the Gulf state was supporting terrorism.

Iraq Headline:ISIS executes eight Sunnis in northern Iraq

ISIS militants publicly executed eight Sunni men in a small northern Iraqi village at the weekend for allegedly plotting against the group, an eyewitness from the village told Reuters Sunday. The killing began on Friday night when a pair of masked ISIS gunmen openly murdered a police officer in Al-Jumasah village after the militant group accused him of spying for the Kurdish and Iraqi military forces, the witness said. The ISIS fighters gathered local residents to watch the execution in the village, about 120 km north of Tikrit. “Islamic State members said that this is the fate of anyone who opposes them,” the witness said. “They presented as evidence CDs and copies of the man’s correspondences with the security forces.” After the police officer was executed, a small armed group opened fire in revenge on the house of an ISIS officer.

The official spokesperson of the Kurdistan Regional Presidency (KRP) has condemned the execution of the British humanitarian activist, David Haines by the Jihadi group. The KRP labeled the execution of the British worker as unethical and brutal. “The Islamic State published the execution of a British humanitarian activist, David Haines. Taking the British activist as a hostage for a year and then executing him is extremely unethical and immoral. We condemn this immoral act of IS militants in the strongest possible terms,” read the statement. The statement also states that this act shows that the group will continue to ignore all humanitarian and religious values. “Therefore, annihilating this treacherous terrorist group at its roots is an urgent obligation that the International Community should carry out,” concluded the statement.

Kurdish Headline:   Deputy asks Barzani to remove Turkey military bases in Kurdistan Region

A member of Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) in Kurdistan Region’s local parliament asked President Massoud Barzani to remove Turkey military bases in the region in the north of Iraq. Salar Mahmoud said Turkey is in negotiation with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in line with peace talks with the party and Ankara should remove its bases in Kurdistan Region. In an agreement with toppled Iraqi President Saddam Hussein in 1996, Turkey made bases in Kurdistan Region, something Mahmoud called illegal and a violation of the region’s rights and laws. Turkey has repeatedly violated the region’s airspace on diverse excuses but as talks with the PKK is getting to end in a good result; Ankara should withdraw its forces form Kurdistan Region. That’s the duty of the executive power to put into action decision number 37 that was ratified in 2005, something that makes the region’s president to make Turkey to take its forces out of the region.

Headline: Is ISIS able to bring down American planes?- CNN VIDEO

Islamic State of Iraq and Levant has been operating anti-aircraft batteries stolen from the Iraqi military. Officials said the U.S. military has determined that ISIL deployed an unspecified number of anti-aircraft artillery to counter Western air strikes in northern Iraq. Western diplomatic sources said ISIL struck at least one U.S. aircraft. They said an F-15 fighter-jet was hit by ISIL fire in late August that damaged the hydraulic system and forced the aircraft to land in neighboring Turkey. Officials did not identify the anti-aircraft batteries employed by ISIL, according to a report by Middle East Newsline. But they acknowledged that most of the stolen Iraqi military equipment used by ISIL was of U.S. origin, including artillery, armored personnel carriers and combat vehicles. The officials said ISIL was operating the artillery, captured from northern Iraqi military bases in June 2014. “They have used these batteries to protect their positions against air strikes,” an official said.

Russia Monday offered its help in the international fight against ISIS as global powers step up efforts to help Iraq battle jihadists. “We have got a contribution to make to the joint efforts in the specific area of ensuring security in Iraq through consolidating society and mobilizing it in a fight with terrorism and extremism,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in Paris. “We are also providing military and other assistance to Syria and other countries in the region which face -maybe to a lesser extent – a serious terrorist threat,” Lavrov added. “These are our partners in Egypt, Lebanon, Yemen and Jordan.” In July, Moscow announced it was delivering combat helicopters and fighter jets to Iraq. Russia, which is locked in a showdown with the West over Ukraine, said last week that unilateral U.S. airstrikes in Syria would be a crude violation of international law.

Headline: Nato states begin exercise in west Ukraine, weapons deliveries

Nato countries have started an annual military exercise in west Ukraine, with Kiev saying some of them have also begun delivering weapons. The US-led exercise – “Rapid Trident” – began on Monday (15 September) in Yavoriv, near the Polish-Ukrainian border. According to a US statement, the 11-day drill will practice “peacekeeping and stability operations”, including “countering improvised explosive devices, convoy operations, and patrolling”. It includes 200 US soldiers from the 173rd Airborne Brigade, based in Italy. It also includes 1,100 troops from Nato states Bulgaria, Canada, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain, and the UK and from former Soviet republics Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine. Rapid Trident is taking place at the same time as “Maple Arch” – a Canadian-Polish drill involving Canandian, Lithuanian, and Polish soldiers in Poland. Ukraine has taken part in similar events since 2006. But this year’s arrival of US soldiers comes as Ukrainian forces wage war against Russian troops and pro-Russia rebels in east Ukraine. US military spokesman Gregory Hicks said Rapid Trident is “proof of Nato countries’ support for states who are not alliance members”. Canada’s defence minister Rob Nicholson said Maple Arch is designed to “further regional security … in the wake of the Putin regime’s [Russia’s] aggressive military actions”. For his part, Ukrainian defence minister Valery Heletey told press in Kiev on Sunday that some Nato countries have also started delivering arms to Ukraine in line with a deal at the recent Nato summit.

Fresh shelling in Ukraine’s eastern city of Donetsk has left six people dead and fifteen others injured, the city council says. “As a result of the shelling, six civilians were killed and 15 people were wounded by shrapnel to varying degrees,” the council said on Monday. Donetsk’s two northern districts were shelled on Sunday, damaging residential and administrative buildings, the council added. According to reports, the shelling marked the bloodiest day since a ceasefire was signed 10 days ago between the Ukrainian government and pro-Moscow activists. The pro-Moscow forces, based in Donetsk, have put the casualties at 20, with Alexander Zakharchenko, a leader of the pro-Russians, accusing Ukrainian troops of violating the ceasefire. Elsewhere in the nearby Lugansk area, officials say the Ukrainian forces tried to break through a city held by the pro-Russians but they repelled the attack.

The State Department responded within hours, saying the United States has indeed talked to Iran about Islamic State’s deadly foray into Iraq, but never discussed a coordinated military effort to stop the terror group. In a series of tweets, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the discussions occurred on the sidelines of a recent United Nations meeting about Iran dismantling its nuclear-enrichment program. “It is no secret that we have had discussions w Iran about counter-ISIL efforts in Iraq,” Psaki tweeted. The tweet was followed by another, within seconds, that said: “We are not and will not coordinate militarily with Iran.” Psaki, however, in a follow-up tweet, appeared to leave open the possibility of further discussion at an upcoming UN meeting. “There may be another opportunity on the margins in the future to discuss #Iraq w Iran.”

Headline: S. Sudan President Seeks Meeting with Sudan’s Leader

South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir has officially written to Sudanese President Omar Hassan Al-Bashir proposing talks to deepen bilateral relations and security cooperation, according to Ateny Wek Ateny, South Sudan presidential spokesperson. Ateny also said the negotiations would include ways to resolve the dispute over the oil-rich Abyei region. Its status has yet to be determined in spite of an agreement signed between Juba and Khartoum in September 27, 2012. “One of the issues is the cooperation agreements that were signed between the Sudan and the Republic of South Sudan. The other issue is the outstanding issue about Abyei [whose case] remains unresolved, and the matter has been referred to the two heads of state. So it is incumbent on the two presidents to seek to meet at any convenient time so that they discuss the outstanding issues,” said Ateny. He said the meeting between the two neighboring heads of state is likely to be scheduled at the end of the month, since he said President Kiir will be attending the United Nation’s General Assembly in New York. “If this meeting were to be scheduled by the Sudan government next week then [President Kiir] will not be available…If President Al-Bashir is traveling to New York then they can meet on the sidelines,” said Ateny. “If President Bashir doesn’t want to go to the U.N. General Assembly, then the meeting should take place any other time after the return of President Salva Kiir from America some time at the end of this month.” Sudan and South Sudan often trade accusations of supporting rebel groups fighting each other’s government.

An unidentified military jet launched an air strike on Monday against a military base in western Libya held by anti-government militias, Libyan media reported. The raid hit a munitions depot held by a militia in the town of Gharyan, southwest of the capital, state news agency LANA reported. Last month Forces belonging to the mostly Islamist Fajr Libya (Libya Dawn) alliance were targeted by warplanes near Tripoli airport before they defeated nationalist militia rivals at the site, with Washington saying the UAE and Egypt were behind the night raids. Monday’s strike left “a number of casualties” LANA said without elaborating, while private television station Al-Nabaa said 11 people were wounded. Militias in Gharyan are members of the Fajr Libya alliance which rejects the legitimacy of the elected parliament because it allegedly supported the air raids against its fighters at the airport. The government, in turn, has accused Sudan and Qatar of supplying weapons to its Islamist opponents.

A new armed group calling itself the “Soldiers of the Caliphate in Algeria” has split from al-Qaeda’s North African branch and sworn loyalty to the group calling itself the Islamic State (IS), fighting in Syria and Iraq. In a communique released on Sunday, a regional commander of al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) said he broke away from the group, accusing it of “deviating from the true path”. Gouri Abdelmalek, nom de guerre Khaled Abu Suleimane, claimed leadership of the splinter group, and was joined by a AQIM commander of an eastern region in Algeria. “You have in the Islamic Maghreb men if you order them they will obey you,” Suleimane said in reference to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self-professed “caliph” of the IS group. Algerian officials did not immediately comment on the statement. The “Soldiers of the Caliphate in Algeria” is the latest group to break with AQIM and side with Baghdadi, after veteran Algerian jihadist, Mokhtar Belmokhtar’s group, “Those who sign in Blood” pledged allegiance to the IS group.

A German man who once played for a Jewish soccer team went on trial Monday accused of fighting for ISIS in Syria. The 20-year-old defendant – whose family is originally from Kosovo and who was identified only as Kreshnik B. due to Germany’s privacy laws – was arrested at Frankfurt Airport last December after returning from the Middle East. The case marks the first time Germany has launched criminal proceedings against a suspected member of the terror group.

Headline:  Turkey mulls ‘buffer zone’ on southern border

The Turkish military is looking into the possibility of establishing a “buffer zone” on its southern border, where it faces a threat from militants belonging to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, Turkish media cited President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as saying, Reuters reported on Monday. Ankara would weigh up the plans and decide whether such a move was necessary, Turkish television stations quoted Erdogan as telling reporters on his plane as he returned from an official visit to Qatar. A presidency official confirmed he had made such remarks but did not specify where along the border the zone might be established and gave no further details, Reuters said. Turkey has come under fire by some critics for indirectly encouraging the formation of ISIS because of its support of Islamist opponents of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and its loose control of its borders. However, a Turkish government official told AFP on Thursday Ankara would refuse to allow a U.S.-led coalition to attack militants in neighboring Iraq and Syria from its air bases, nor would it take part in combat operations against militants.

Turkey’s EU Minister Volkan Bozkır said that Turkey did its share to promote relations with Armenia and that everyone needs to live together by avoiding the mention of what happened in the past, Daily Sabah reported. Underscoring the significance of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s letter on April 24, Bozkır said, “With this letter, we showed that we are turning over a new leaf to heartbreaking events and offer a hand of peace. If [our] counterpart accepts this hand, we may open a new page. It is impossible to walk [together toward] the future of the world with hatred and by killing each other.” In the statement, Erdoğan said, “[he] wishes Armenian people who lost their lives under the conditions of the beginning of the 20th century to rest in peace” and he “sends [his] condolences to their grandchildren […] Having experienced events with inhumane consequences such as relocation, during World War I, should not prevent Turks and Armenians from establishing compassion and mutually humane attitudes toward one another.”

Headline: Texas Sheriff: Reports Warn Of ISIS Terrorist Cells Coming Across The Border

Midland County Sheriff Gary Painter said that law enforcement agencies along the “wide open” border have received alerts to be on the lookout for terrorists from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria crossing into the United States. Painter, who said he has worked along the border for “about eight years,” stated that alerts have been issued to border law enforcement to be on the lookout for suspicious terrorist activity, specifically involving ISIS cells being smuggled into the United States. “I received an intelligence report that said that there was ISIS cells that were active in the Juarez area, which is the northern part of the Chihuahua state, and that they were moving around over there, that there was some activity…” Painter told Fox News. The report asked “for the sheriffs along the border to be on the alert, for all law enforcement to be on the alert, and to be on the lookout for these people maybe trying to come across.” Painter sidestepped any direct knowledge that ISIS, specifically, is along the border, but he reiterated that the border “is wide open.” “Well I’m saying the border is wide open, there is no control on the border, it’s not shut off,” said Painter. “There’s places along the Rio Grande you can walk across, there’s no water in it. I worked the border for eight years I walked back and forth across the Rio Grande; I was in Mexico, I was on this side. I never got challenged. “There’s always a way to get across, there’s coyotes that bring those people across for thousands of dollars.” Painter noted that “Muslim” items have been strewn along the border and estimated that 10 to 15 million “undocumented aliens” have crossed the border.

Headline: UN takes over C. African Republic peacekeeping

The United Nations took over a regional African peacekeeping mission in Central African Republic on Monday, nine months after sectarian violence erupted that has left at least 5,000 people dead and has forced tens of thousands of Muslims to flee into exile in neighboring countries. About 1,800 additional peacekeepers and police are joining the mission as the United Nations takes over, though that force when combined with the existing African troops is still only about 65 percent of what was authorized by the U.N. Security Council in April. Human rights groups and others called for the full deployment of a nearly 12,000-strong force, which diplomats have said won’t take place until early 2015. “The switch from AU to U.N. peacekeepers must be more than a cosmetic change: the swapping green berets for blue helmets. Instead it must serve as a fresh start for the peacekeeping operation in CAR,” said Steve Cockburn, Amnesty International’s campaigns deputy regional director for West and Central Africa. The peacekeepers face an enormous task: bringing peace to a country the size of Texas with some 4.6 million people that is one of the least developed on the African continent. Some roads have not been repaired since independence from France in 1960 and others are near-inaccessible during the rainy season. The country’s vast north was largely anarchic even before the violence erupted and is home to a plethora of rebel groups and armed movements.

On Sunday, Khan told his supporters in central Islamabad that he would not back down from his demand for Sharif to step down and urged more protesters to join him. The cricketer-turned-politician urged the protesters to stand against the politicians in power in the country, warning that if they don’t, they will be “enslaved.” “I assure you [that] Nawaz Sharif, who is like an emperor, a king… until he steps down, I will not move from here,” he added. Khan, who heads the Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, and cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri, the head of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT), have been leading daily protest rallies in Islamabad since August 14.

Yemeni security and tribal officials say at least 25 people were killed in clashes between Sunni tribesmen affiliated to the country’s Muslim Brotherhood group and Shiite rebels in a northern city. The officials said Monday that the killings took place over the past 24 hours in fighting between the Shiite rebels, known as Hawthis, and their rivals in the city of Jawf. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the press. The Hawthis, already in control of the northern city of Saada, have been staging demonstrations in the capital Sanaa demanding a new government.

In June 2014, there were 46,496,145 recipients of the food stamp program, which is enough to fill the Yankee Stadium 925 times, according to data from the Department of Agriculture (USDA). The Yankee Stadium is equipped to hold 50,291 persons, meaning that the 46,496,145 Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients in June 2014 could fill the stadium 925 times.  The number of recipients was up 270,999 since the previous month in May 2014 when there were 46,225,146 individuals participating in the program. Similarly, the number of households participating in the SNAP program has increased as well from the 22,590,393 participating in May 2014 to the 22,713,934 participating in June 2014, an increase of 123,541 households. Participation in the SNAP program peaked for individuals in December of 2012, when there were 47,792,056 persons participating. Since this peak, participation for individuals has declined by 1,295,911 individuals. Historically, since the beginning of the data that appears on the USDA website, participation has increased 7.6 percent. In October 2010, there were 43,201,052 recipients of SNAP benefits.

Headline: CDC issues Ebola checklist: ‘Now is the time to prepare’

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, warning hospitals and doctors that “now is the time to prepare,” has issued a six-page Ebola “checklist” to help healthcare workers quickly determine if patients are infected. While the CDC does not believe that there are new cases of Ebola in the United States, the assumption in the checklist is that it is only a matter of time before the virus hits home. For example, one part reads: “Encourage healthcare personnel to use a ‘buddy system’ when caring for patients.” Another recommends a process to report cases to top officials: Plan for regular situational briefs for decision-makers, including:

– Suspected and confirmed EVD patients who have been identified and reported to public health authorities.

– Isolation, quarantine and exposure reports.

– Supplies and logistical challenges.

– Personnel status, and policy decisions on contingency plans and staffing.

The checklist has been distributed to major hospitals and even little ones, including an urgent center in Leesburg, Va. “Every hospital should ensure that it can detect a patient with Ebola, protect healthcare workers so they can safely care for the patient, and respond in a coordinated fashion,” warns the CDC. “While we are not aware of any domestic Ebola Virus Disease cases (other than two American citizens who were medically evacuated to the United States), now is the time to prepare, as it is possible that individuals with EVD in West Africa may travel to the United States, exhibit signs and symptoms of EVD, and present to facilities,” it adds.

Islamist police in Saudi Arabia have stormed a Christian prayer meeting and arrested its entire congregation, including women and children, and confiscated their bibles, it has been reported. The raid was the latest incident of a swingeing crackdown on religious minorities in Saudi Arabia by the country’s hard-line Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice. The 28 Christians were said to be worshipping at the home of an Indian national in the eastern city of Khafji, when the police entered the building and took them into custody. They have not been seen or heard from since, raising concerns among human rights groups as to their whereabouts. Nina Shea, director of the Washington-based Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom, told FoxNews.com: ‘Saudi Arabia is continuing the religious cleansing that has always been its official policy. ‘It is the only nation state in the world with the official policy of banning all churches. ‘This is enforced even though there are over two million Christian foreign workers in that country.

On Thursday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel was doing its part in confronting worldwide jihadist terrorism, though not all of its efforts are known to the public and expressed Jerusalem’s full support for the American-led offensive against the Islamic State organization unveiled Wednesday. In a major foreign policy address, Netanyahu also warned of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons, saying this would cause the “ultimate terror.” Efforts to weaken Sunni terrorists should not result in strengthening Shiite radicalism, he urged.

Israeli and US representatives held high-level talks in Washington on Thursday night, as part of the semi-annual series of US-Israel meetings dubbed ‘Strategic Dialogue.’
The US-Israel discussions, headed by Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz and Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, centered on a host of hot-button issues – from the changes engulfing the Middle East, to the ever-expanding threat of Islamic State, to joining forces against regional terrorism. The US State Department emphasized the importance of reaching a lasting agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, following the latest round of armed conflict in the Gaza Strip. The parties discussed the recent seven-week conflict in the coastal territory and the urgent need to achieve durable peace and a permanent halt to the fighting. Representatives of both sides have agreed to take action to rehabilitate and provide much-needed humanitarian aid to Gaza, a statement by the State Department said, while at the same time pushing to strengthen the Palestinian Authority. Washington reiterated its concern over settlement activity, in light of Israel’s most recent decision to expand its state land in the West Bank by 4,000 dunams.

Two weeks after the end of the Gaza war, there is growing evidence that Hamas militants used residential areas as cover for launching rockets at Israel, at least at times. Even Hamas now admits “mistakes” were made. But Hamas says it had little choice in Gaza’s crowded urban landscape, took safeguards to keep people away from the fighting, and that a heavy-handed Israeli response is to blame for the deaths of hundreds of Palestinian civilians. “Gaza, from Beit Hanoun in the north to Rafah in the south, is one uninterrupted urban chain that Israel has turned into a war zone,” said Ghazi Hamad, a senior Hamas official in Gaza. Increasingly, the discussion is not about whether the Hamas rockets were fired from civilian areas, but exactly how close they were to the actual buildings. “The Israelis kept saying rockets were fired from schools or hospitals when in fact they were fired 200 or 300 meters (yards) away. Still, there were some mistakes made and they were quickly dealt with,” Hamad told The Associated Press, offering the first acknowledgment by a Hamas official that, in some cases, militants fired rockets from or near residential areas or civilian facilities.

Headline: MK Feiglin Warns of a New Intifada in Jerusalem

Headline: Friday afternoon prayers end with arrests on Temple Mount

MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud) visited eastern Jerusalem and the Temple Mount on Thursday with members of the Internal Affairs Committee, where he told Arutz Sheva that he is convinced the wave of terror in the capital will only increase in coming days. “The loss of control over Jerusalem, and by continuation also over Gaza, started on the Temple Mount,” Feiglin said, while at the French Hill gas station that Arab rioters tried to explode on Sunday. Feiglin’s comments come in the wake of the dismantling of a new access ramp to the Temple Mount in a folding to Jordanian pressure, and recommendations by MKs, including those of the Jewish Home, to maintain the status quo of de facto Jordanian Waqf (Islamic Trust) control. “The one who controls the Mount controls the land, and first of all (controls) Jerusalem,” emphasized Feiglin to Arutz Sheva. “Whoever thought that they could abandon the Mount for over 40 years to Hamas and extremist Islam and conquer Jerusalem through the Zionist method of ‘another sheep another dunam’ (i.e. building) – I think we must understand now that they were wrong.” Feiglin stressed that the Temple Mount is the center of Jerusalem, warning that many “still think we can take our Zionist actions in reverse, and that the Israeli leadership that ignores the Mount will advance us in the process of redemption and everything will be okay.” However, the abandonment of the Mount and “depressed” ending of Operation Protective Edge, in which decisive military action to remove the Hamas threat was not recorded, will only spur terror in Jerusalem according to the MK. “Hamas in its mind won the war, its standing in the Muslim world was increased enormously, and what we did to them in Gaza interests (Hamas leader) Ismail Haniyeh about as much as last year’s snow,” remarked Feiglin.

Headline: Anti-Semitic Attacks up 400% in UK, Double in France

Anti-Semitic attacks nearly doubled in France in the first seven months of 2014, the country’s main Jewish group said Thursday. A total of 529 anti-Semitic actions or threats were registered up to the end of July, against 276 for the same period last year, the Council of Jewish Institutions in France (CRIF) said, citing figures gleaned from the French Interior Ministry. The acts included violence against individuals, arson and vandalism, and “exacerbate the growing unease that oppresses Jews in France each day and overshadows their future”, CRIF said in a statement. Yet more worrying, the group added, is the appearance of new forms of violence against Jews – including attacks by organized gangs and the targeting of synagogues, as well as acts of vandalism against Jewish businesses and planned terrorist attacks. Meanwhile in the UK, the Community Security Trust (CST) anti-Semitism watchdog group reports 302 anti-Semitic incidents in July alone, making a whopping 400% increase over the same month last year. English anti-Semitism has been heard from the government itself during Operation Protective Edge, with the government threatening to cut 12 arms export licenses with Israel over the fighting against the terrorist group Hamas. Likewise, radical left-wing British MP George Galloway infamously declared his city of Bradford in northern England “Israeli free.”

Headline:  Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan calls to end ties with ‘the Jews’

In a protest against Israel’s 50-day operation against Hamas and other terror operatives in the Gaza Strip, a senior member of the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood decried the kingdom’s diplomatic relations with the Jewish state, and offered his and the Jordanian people’s unwavering support for Palestinian “resistance” fighters who wage “jihad” against IDF soldiers and Israeli civilians. Speaking to a crowd of hundreds of protesters on August 29, Himam Said, the general supervisor of the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood, said that the Hashemite Kingdom’s population, unlike its political leaders, backed the Palestinians in their struggle to defeat the state of Israel. “I have a message to official Jordan,” the Brotherhood representative said, according to a translation provided Thursday by MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute, apparently addressing Jordanian diplomats and members of parliament. “This message is not directed at the people of Jordan, for the people of Jordan are here,” he continued, gesturing at the masses of people who had gathered at the scene. “The entire population of Jordan supports the resistance and the jihad, the tribes as well as the refugee camps, from north to south.” Said went on to lead the crowd in a chant, praising Hamas leaders Ismail Haniyeh and Khaled Mashaal, as the demonstrators in the plaza waved flags of the Gaza-based terror group. “I say to official Jordan, your ties with the Jews are hopeless, and the partner of the hopeless is hopeless too,” Said continued.

Headline: ISIS has created ‘more than 40 cells’ in Lebanon

ISIS has established more than 40 undercover cells in Lebanon, according to top secret information obtained by a security body, heightening fears that new terror attacks may be on the horizon. Each cell is believed to comprise three or four people of Lebanese, Syrian, Palestinian, Jordanian or Iraqi nationality who have been highly trained with guns, explosive belts, land mines and other weapons, a security source said. The cell members, according to the information, have been trained in batches in Syria’s Aleppo and Deir al-Zor and in Lebanon’s West Bekaa, Iqlim al-Kharroub, Akkar and Naameh, reportedly by defected soldiers from the Syrian Army, and Lebanese and Palestinian nationals. The ISIS cells have also apparently been provided with encrypted digital communication devices and pistols with silencers, the information revealed. Most of the members are believed to have been instructed to act normally and fly under the radar of security and intelligence bodies by wearing ordinary clothes and frequenting nightclubs and cafes. Some of the cell members are thought to be carrying fake university IDs.

Dozens of protesters supporting ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi gathered on Friday in different cities around Egypt, calling on the government to free all “political detainees” including Morsi, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported. In East Cairo`s Ain Shams district, a strong base for the ousted president, security forces dispersed protesters who gathered shortly after Friday prayers. The supporting protesters chanted slogans against the military and the government. Demonstrators also gathered in Dar El-Salam in south Cairo, where forces fired teargas to disperse them. A security source told Al-Ahram Arabic website that calm had been restored in these areas. In Alexandria, demonstrators gathered to condemn the current government for the rise in prices, chanting ”down with military rule” “Morsi is our legitimate president” and “free our colleagues and brothers.” Weekly demonstrations after Friday prayers have been common since Morsi’s ouster last year. The number of protesters has greatly diminished following a sustained crackdown by police in which thousands of Morsi supporters have been arrested.

Syria Headline:   US Bolsters Humanitarian Aid for Syrian Conflict

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, meeting with Turkish officials to push an international coalition to combat the Islamic State militant group, has announced nearly $500 million in new humanitarian aid for Syrians affected by the militants’ siege. The new U.S. funding focuses both on civilians displaced inside Syria and the more than 3 million Syrian refugees in Jordan, Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon and Egypt. More than half of Syria’s population has been displaced by conflict. This largest single U.S. humanitarian contribution will go through the United Nations appeal for Syria. It brings the total of U.S. humanitarian assistance to more than $2.9 billion since fighting started in 2011. The new funding comes as part of the Obama administration’s broader push to rally neighboring states to fight Islamic State militants.

Syrian government air raids on a rebel-held area near Damascus killed 42 people, including seven children, an activist group said Friday, giving an updated toll. Thursday’s airstrikes were carried out in Douma, a satellite suburb northeast of the capital that has been under siege for more than a year “The toll from regime air raids on Douma has risen to 42 dead, including seven children and two women,” said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which Thursday had given a death toll of 17. Among those killed were an unspecified number of rebels who have been fighting to oust the regime of President Bashar Assad for more than three years, said the Britain-based group. Activists posted videos on YouTube showing the destruction caused by the raids in Douma, a frequent target of deadly strikes.

Syria Headline: Pro-Assad forces regain control of rebel-held area in Hasakah

The Syrian regime forces regained control of parts of Geweran district in southern Hasakah, northeastern Syria, after clashes with gunmen of Ahrar Geweran, local sources reported. The pro-Assad military forces were reportedly backed by supporters from the National Defence Army (Arab tribal group loyal to President Bashar al-Assad in Hasakah) during the operations against Geweran on Thursday evening, sources told ARA News. Activists based in the city of al-Hasakah confirmed that pro-regime military forces seized control of the al-Sitteen Street and the entrance to al-Beiruti Bridge and al-Basel roundabout in Geweran district. “All parts of southwestern Geweran are captured by pro-Assad forces,” the sources said. Geweran neighbourhood was controlled by gunmen who claimed allegiance to the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) months ago. According to observers, IS militants (who are in control of several areas in the southern countryside of Hasakah) are trying to use Geweran as an entrance to seize the whole city of Hasakah and spread their territories to include the entire northeastern region of Syria, especially after the control of Deir ez-Zor about one month ago. Dozens of fighters were killed during the conflict between pro-Assad forces and Geweran gunmen.

syrian rebels and ISIS ceasefire

As rebels and Islamic State sign historic ceasefire in Damascus, civilians and IS militants alike evacuate Raqqa fearing US airstrikes. Amid reports that IS is regrouping ahead of expected IS attacks, an alliance of rebel groups bashed out a “non-aggression” with IS pact on Friday. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that moderate and Islamist rebels had signed a ceasefire deal for the first time in a suburb of the capital Damascus. “The two parties will respect a truce until a final solution is found, and they promise not to attack each other because they consider the principal enemy” to be Assad’s government and his forces. News site Orient Net published a list of the 11 clauses to the ceasefire agreement, which aims to halt the fierce clashes that have broken out between rebels and IS in and around Damascus over the past 45 days. The site reported that al-Nusra Front – the militant group that on Thursday released 42 UN peacekeepers captured in the Golan Heights, had mediated between the two sides. Charles Lister, an analyst at the Brookings Institute, reported that the alliance on the rebel side was made up of four distinct groups, among them the US-backed Syria Revolutionary Front.

Iraq Headline: What is behind the Islamic State’s decision to reopen banks in Mosul?

Recently, the reinforced doors of the banks in Mosul were reopened. They had been closed since June 10, when the radical jihadi group the Islamic State (IS) took over the city and put public institutions, particularly banks, under heavy guard. “Cash disbursal is limited to current accounts, and does not include the accounts of government departments and public institutions, and the private accounts of persons (natural or legal persons) who are Christian, Yezidi, Shia, or Sunni ‘apostates’,” according to the IS commission’s classifications. “After the members of the commission interviewed me, they told me I was allowed to withdraw only 10 percent of my balance, provided that it would be no more than 10 million dinars.” He added, “When I tried to persuade them that my balance was worth 300 million dinars, one of them said firmly: You are not the only one, these instructions apply to everyone.” Mosul residents who are still hesitant and apprehensive believe that the goal behind reopening the banks is to access details about the deposit accounts, especially since IS has shown great interest in their finances. For this reason, IS might proceed after this step to seize accounts belonging to government institutions and departments, as well as the accounts of “fugitives,” Christians, and others. IS already levies a fee on the funds withdrawn from banks, to the tune of 10 percent of their value. In the context of explaining IS’ recent procedures, we find that the US Foreign Policy Research Institute had said in its latest report that the funds seized by the organization, estimated at $500 million, would not last for a long time, because of the high cost of the conflict IS is fighting on several fronts. Furthermore, an unknown proportion of these funds is being paid to cover the salaries and pensions of government employees. Otherwise, in the event of failing to pay these wages, IS would risk antagonizing the public.

Shesho said that his forces ambushed the IS convoy at Guhbal town near the Rabia border crossing with Syria. “Al-Hassan is a member of the Jiheshi tribe,” said Shesho. “He was in the Al-Qaeda for many years and later join the IS.” Shesho who also leads new units of Yezidi fighters in the region said that Al-Hassan’s killing “would demoralize the Islamist fighters in the area.” No Peshmerga casualties were reported in the fighting.

The formation of a joint Kurdish force to fight Islamic State (IS) militants moved forward, with a meeting in Erbil between Kurdistan Region Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani and Kurdish leaders from Turkey. The visiting delegation included the co-leader of the pro-Kurdish Peoples Democratic Party (HDP) Selahattin Demirtas, who last week called for a united Kurdish defense force that would include troops from all four parts of Kurdistan – Iraq, Turkey, Iran and Syria. He controversially demanded that Ankara arm the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), an insurgent group that has been in conflict with Ankara since 1984, to help confront the threat posed by the Islamic State, the group formerly known as ISIS or ISIL. Demirtas, who was harshly criticized by Turkish officials and media for the suggestion, clarified in a statement Thursday that he meant the force to be formed in Iraqi and Syrian Kurdistan (Rojava), not in Turkey.

President Obama has authorized the Pentagon to target and kill leaders of the Islamic State militant group, with the organization’s head Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi being at the top of the administration’s list. U.S. military officials confirmed to Fox News Thursday that Obama had approved the strikes against individual targets for the first time. The authorization was first reported by the Washington Post. Obama had previously not permitted the military to target individuals from the terrorist organization, also known as ISIS or ISIL, even if intelligence showed where they were located. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said in a press briefing Thursday that the president is “actively engaged” in selecting possible Islamic State targets that are “available.” “The president has gotten guidance about targets that are available and would be critical to denying ISIL a safe-haven both in Iraq and in Syria,” Earnest said. Earnest said the administration has identified the targets through ramped up “intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance assets” in the region.

Headline:   US opposed to Iran’s presence at Iraq conference: Kerry

France will join the U.S.-led airstrikes targeting extremists in Iraq as part of an expanding international effort to combat the Islamic State group, Iraq’s new prime minister said after talks with the French president on Friday. Haider al-Abadi’s remarks came after talks with Francois Hollande, who was in Baghdad to bolster Iraq’s new government as it struggles to unite the nation amid the rampage by the Islamic State group. “In order to confront Daesh, we need aerial support from our allies,” al-Abadi said, referring to the group by its Arabic acronym. “The French president promised me today that France will participate in this effort, hitting the positions of the terrorists in Iraq.” Al-Abadi spoke at a joint press conference with Hollande in Baghdad. Neither of the two leaders provided details about when the French could join the aerial campaign. Hollande has been one of the most militarily aggressive leaders in modern French history, sending troops to Mali and Central African Republic. France was the first European government to start arming Kurdish authorities against Islamic State militants last month. The French government — which vigorously opposed the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq a decade ago — insists any action be at the request of the Iraqi government. France does not want to be a pawn or lapdog in a U.S.-run war, but will play a “significant” role in the coalition and make its own decisions on what to contribute, the French official also said on Thursday. Meanwhile, France is prepared to invite Iran to an international conference Monday aimed at coordinating actions to knock out the Islamic State extremists in Iraq — even though that runs counter to the U.S. refusal to deal with Tehran.

The brother of murdered American journalist James Foley said his family was “appalled” by the government’s handling of Foley’s case and accused the Obama administration of threatening him when he tried to raise funds for his brother’s release from ISIS — the terrorist group that beheaded him in an Internet video that shocked the world. “They were actually an impedance,” Michael Foley said of the U.S. government’s role in rescuing his older brother, a photojournalist who was kidnapped by ISIS militants in northern Syria in 2012 and held captive for 21 months before he was executed by the terrorist group. U.S. policy does not allow for government negotiations with terrorist organizations or ransom payments for Americans kidnapped by them. Foley, however, said the administration made it difficult for the family to privately raise funds on its own to secure his brother’s release. “They got in our way,” Foley told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly in an exclusive interview Thursday. “That’s what really bothers me to the core.” “I was specifically threatened by the Department of State about raising funds towards ransom demands for my brother,” he said. “We were smart enough to look past it but it slowed us down. We lost a lot of time.”

Headline:   Michele Bachmann: FBI Told Me Americans Who Fight with ISIS Will Be Allowed to Return

A former CIA officer said Thursday he has no doubt Islamic State (ISIS) sleeper cells are already planted on U.S. soil. An unnamed U.S. intelligence official told CNN there’s already an indication of ISIS sleeper cells in Europe that could target U.S. embassies and other American interests. But former CIA officer Bob Baer told the network ISIS is already on this side of the Atlantic. “I have been told with no uncertainty there are ISIS sleeper cells in this country,” he said. Though CNN said two U.S. officials had refuted the claim, they’re worried ISIS militants with passports might travel to the United States to launch attacks on American soil, CNN reported. One ISIS fighter already has hinted as much. In several telephone conversations with a Reuters reporter over the past few months, Islamic State fighters suggest their leader, Iraqi Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is planning something for the West – and that attacks could take place through sleeper cells in both Europe and the United States. “The West are idiots and fools,” one fighter taunted, according to Reuters. “They think we are waiting for them to give us visas to go and attack them or that we will attack with our beards or even Islamic outfits. “They think they can distinguish us these days – they are fools and more than that they don’t know we can play their game in intelligence. They infiltrated us with those who pretend to be Muslims and we have also penetrated them with those who look like them.”

I will bring disaster upon them, My fierce anger,’ says the Lord; ‘And I will send the sword after them Until I have consumed them. 38 I will set My throne in Elam, And will destroy from there the king and the princes,’ says the Lord. 39 ‘But it shall come to pass in the latter days: I will bring back the captives of Elam,’ says the Lord.”

Headline:   Iran wants IAEA to condemn Israel drone ‘aggression’

Iran has called on the U.N. atomic agency to condemn an “act of aggression” by Israel for sending a drone last month to spy on a site which is at the center of its decade-old nuclear dispute with the West. The Iranian move comes ahead of a meeting next week of the 35-nation board of the International Atomic Energy Agency where Tehran likely faces Israeli and Western criticism for failing to address IAEA concerns about its suspected atomic bomb research.

Headline: Sudan Opposition Parties Call for ‘Intifada’

The National Consensus Forces (NCF) are not interested in a national dialogue, as long as it will not dismantle the one-party-state in Sudan. The allied opposition parties instead call for an intifada. After a lengthy meeting on Wednesday, the leadership of the NCF, a coalition of Sudanese opposition parties, issued the September Declaration, calling for the “elimination of the Khartoum regime” through civil disobedience and a popular uprising, with the purpose of establishing “an alternative democratic and independent Sudan, meeting the aspirations of the people”. “The NCF are not interested in any dialogue that does not aim at dismantling the one-party state that is responsible for the wide-spread abuses against the Sudanese people”, Faroug Abu Eisa, chairman of the NCF told Radio Dabanga. He said that the opposition leaders stressed the importance of unity among the Sudanese opposition during the meeting. “We need to unite all political and civil society elements in the country to cooperate on the solution for the Sudanese crises.” “Therefore”, Abu Eisa stated, “communication with the Sudan Revolutionary Front, as one of the opposition forces, is of utmost significance.”

Headline:   Islamist arrest sparks Tunisia clash

Tunisian police and Islamists protesting against the arrest of a militant have clashed in the southern town of Douz, the Interior Ministry said Friday. “(This week) we arrested an Islamist under a search warrant. The case is unrelated to terrorism, but is a matter of common law,” ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Aroui said. Clashes first broke out after the man was detained overnight between Wednesday and Thursday and continued overnight Thursday Friday, Aroui said. “Around 50 Islamist demonstrators” clashed with police in Douz on the edge of the Sahara desert, he said. Protesters used burning tires to block roads and threw stones at police who replied with tear gas, the private radio station Mosaique FM reported. “Police and national guardsmen are at the scene, and have the situation under control,” Aroui said, adding that there had been 26 arrests and three members of the security forces were lightly injured.

Headline:  Security concerns push Algerian defence budget beyond $10 billion

Algeria boasts the largest defence budget in Africa. Over the past decade (2004-2013) its military spending has more than doubled, with an increase of 176 percent, taking total annual spending to $10.4 billion. This makes Algeria the first African nation to tip its defence budget beyond the $10 billion mark. The Algerian government is spending its billions on a broad upgrade of the country’s defence capabilities. Recent purchases and interest have included unmanned drones and self-propelled artillery from China, an amphibious vessel “Kalaat Bani-Abbes” built in Italy, armoured vehicles from Germany to be assembled in a newly-established plant in Algeria, and a range of substantial purchases from Russia, including helicopters and submarines. With a decade of bloody civil war behind it, the concern is that new defence spending indicates an even greater security challenge for Algeria over the coming years. And with Africa’s biggest spender wedged between multiple conflict zones, complex geopolitics could well force Algeria to take a more central role in policing the region.

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) said Friday that neo-Nazi vandalism and threats against a local newspaper in eastern Germany were “unacceptable and must be stopped.” This week, vandals sprayed the words “Jews” and the Nazi slogan “Sieg Heil” on the office windows of the Lausitzer Rundschau, a newspaper known for its coverage of far-right groups. The week before, four swastikas were daubed on other offices of the paper as well as “Jews, kill them” and “We’ll get you all”. There were similar incidents against the daily in 2012. “These threats and acts of vandalism must be stopped and I am confident that the authorities will take the necessary precautions to ensure journalists’ safety,” the OSCE’s media representative Dunja Mijatovic said. “I welcome the condemnation of these attacks from the highest level of the German authorities in Brandenburg state and trust that these incidents will be swiftly and thoroughly investigated,” she said in a statement.

Headline:  49 reasons why Turkey doesn’t want to fight the Islamic State

On Friday, Secretary of State John Kerry headed to Ankara, Turkey, to meet with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and discuss possible cooperation to fight the Islamic State. So far, 10 states in the Middle East have declared a “shared commitment” to President  Obama’s plan to tackle the extremist group. However, despite being a key NATO ally and possessing a strong military, Turkey has refrained from embracing the plan, and reports suggest that it will not allow its air bases to be used for air strikes against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria. While U.S. officials are said to expect some kind of cooperation, there’s one big factor that helps explain Ankara’s hesitation: The lives of 49 Turkish citizens. In June, Islamic State raided the Turkish consulate in the Iraqi city of Mosul and took 49 people hostage. The safety of these hostages, still held by Islamic State, is of clear concern for Ankara, and the Turkish government is not only weary of provoking the Islamic State but also the families of those being held. Erdoğan has largely kept quiet about the status of negotiations, grimly telling Al Jazeera last month that his hope is for a solution “that would not cause sorrow.” As one unnamed Turkish official told the AFP this week, “Our hands and arms are tied because of the hostages.” Turkey’s entanglement with the Islamic State goes deeper than the hostages, however. Turkey shares a long border with Syria, and some towns in southern Turkey ended up becoming staging grounds for Islamist rebel fighters, including the Islamic State, in the early days of the Syrian war. Ankara tolerated their presence, apparently believing that anything bad for Bashar al-Assad’s Syrian regime was good for Turkey. They were wrong.

Law enforcement officials and city leaders from across the Rio Grande Valley are preparing for what they say could result in tense moments or violence. Officials say they received word that members of a militia are threatening to block ports of entry. In Starr County, international bridge authorities met with Customs and Border Protection officials Thursday. Their goal was to discuss the potential problem and find a plan of action. Starr County has international bridges in Rio Grande City, Roma and Falcon Dam. Officials received word that members of a militia plan to protest illegal crossings by blocking traffic on Sept. 20. Rio Grande City Mayor Ruben Villarreal said members of the group have a right to express their opinion. His is concerned about the group’s intent, though. “What can we expect? I don’t know. The unknown becomes an issue that we really got to prepare for,” Villarreal said. “I’m a 100 percent sure that with the National Guard, with DPS, with Border Patrol and local law enforcement, we’ll communicate and we’ll handle whatever comes,” he said. “The level of communication that exists doesn’t get talked about enough. It’s an extraordinary amount of communication,” Villarreal said. Villarreal said he is worried about safety. “If they’re here to block traffic, to be a hindrance between traffic and the port of entry, that causes a problem. It’s a huge safety issue,” Villarreal said.

Headline: U.S. threatened massive fine to force Yahoo to release data

The U.S. government threatened to fine Yahoo $250,000 a day in 2008 if it failed to comply with a broad demand to hand over user communications — a request the company believed was unconstitutional — according to court documents unsealed Thursday that illuminate how federal officials forced American tech companies to participate in the National Security Agency’s controversial PRISM program. The documents, roughly 1,500 pages worth, outline a secret and ultimately unsuccessful legal battle by Yahoo to resist the government’s demands. The company’s loss required Yahoo to become one of the first to begin providing information to PRISM, a program that gave the NSA extensive access to records of online com­munications by users of Yahoo and other U.S.-based technology firms. The ruling by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review became a key moment in the development of PRISM, helping government officials to convince other Silicon Valley companies that unprecedented data demands had been tested in the courts and found constitutionally sound. Eventually, most major U.S. tech companies, including Google, Facebook, Apple and AOL, complied. Microsoft had joined earlier, before the ruling, NSA documents have shown.

Headline: Bama Residents: Militants, Not Nigerian Troops, Hold City

Nigerian government forces were fighting Islamist insurgents 35 km (20 miles) outside Borno state capital Maiduguri on Friday to try to stop any attack on the northeastern city, local residents said. Authorities were struggling to reassure frightened locals that the armed forces would defend them against the Boko Haram militants, who have overrun a string of towns and villages in the area in recent weeks. Maiduguri residents said they heard gunfire and explosions coming from the direction of Konduga, southeast of the city, on Friday, and later saw army troop carriers heading there. “Some people came from Konduga … they told us the army are in control,” Musa Sumail, a human rights activist in Maiduguri, told Reuters by phone. Other residents said they were told the army had intercepted an attempted probe into Konduga by a group of Boko Haram fighters. No details of casualties were available. Sumail said military helicopters were flying over the Borno state capital, which has filled up with tens of thousands of refugees fleeing Boko Haram forces advancing from the north, east and south of Maiduguri in the last few weeks. Thousands more have fled Maiduguri westwards towards Damaturu for safety.

The Houthi protesters, attending the mass funeral in Sana’a on Friday, chanted anti-government slogans and called on the international community to break its silence on Yemeni authorities’ acts of violence against their community. The funeral comes three days after government troops opened fire on revolutionaries who were marching on the prime minister’s office in the capital city, killing at least seven and injuring more than 100. Meanwhile, Yemen’s revolutionaries have rejected as baseless a government claim that the two sides have reached an agreement to end the political crisis in the country. Houthi Political Bureau said negotiations are still underway and no agreement has been signed yet.

The pound, already suffering its worst month in more than a year, has the potential to tumble 10 percent should the Scots vote for independence from the U.K., according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg. A victory by Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond’s “yes” campaign would mean a 5 percent to 10 percent slide versus the dollar within a month, said 61 percent of the 31 respondents polled by Bloomberg Sept. 5-11. Sterling is already down 5.5 percent from a five-year high in July, and touched its lowest level in 10 months this week as momentum for the separatists increased. Meanwhile, Britain’s international partners are aghast, mostly in silence,  at the possibility one of the leading Western powers could break up and turn in on itself if Scotland votes for independence from London. Many fear such a split would foreshadow a British exit from the European Union, on which Prime Minister David Cameron has promised a referendum in 2017, weakening the world’s sixth largest economy and its continental partners.

Territorial claims in the South China Sea by the Philippines and China received a new perspective in an exhibit of ancient maps in Manila, Philippines. The two countries, with other neighboring countries, are contesting each other’s sovereignty over minor but strategic islands and reefs in the international waters of the South China Sea, particularly around Scarborough Shoal and the Spratly Islands. A current exhibit of 60 historical maps, some dating back to 1136, claims to show the islands in question were never historically a part of China. “We should respect historical facts, not historical lies,” said Philippines Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio. His lecture, accompanying the map display, claims the maps show the Hainan region of China is exclusively mainland territory and does not include maritime territory. The exhibit is entitled “Historical Truths and Lies.” Earlier in the year the Chinese government designed and produced an official map of its own. Known as “the vertical map,” it shows China claiming much of the South China Sea.

Headline:   Experts worry Ebola could mutate to spread by air

The unprecedented spread of the Ebola virus in West Africa may be pushing the world toward a viral disaster, a commentary published in Friday’s New York Times suggests. The article reveals that experts are worried ongoing transmission of the virus through people runs the risk of giving rise to mutations that might allow Ebola to spread through the air, like some of the world’s most contagious viruses. The virus currently spreads when a person has contact with contaminated bodily fluids. The article bears the headline: What We’re Afraid to Say About Ebola. It was written by Michael Osterholm of the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Diseases Research and Policy. It is among the first signs that experts who have been watching the outbreak with mounting alarm are ready to go public with grave concerns about an Ebola outbreak that is unlike any the world has ever seen. Viruses like Ebola mutate constantly. And each time an animal virus such as Ebola infects a person, it has the chance to develop mutations that make it better adapted to spreading among people. No one knows what cycling Ebola viruses through so many people would mean in terms of the virus’s evolution. But scientists who study Ebola — one of the deadliest viruses to afflict humankind — would prefer not to watch the experiment in action. Osterholm suggested each infection gives the mutating virus “trillions of throws of the genetic dice.” “The current Ebola virus’s hyper-evolution is unprecedented; there has been more human-to-human transmission in the past four months than most likely occurred in the last 500 to 1,000 years,” he said in his Times commentary.

Headline:   Catholic Cardinal McCarrick Embraces Islam

Headline:   Catholic Cardinal Praises Islam at event Organized by Group Headed by Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrator

Catholic Cardinal Theodore McCarrick offered Islamic religious phrases and insisted that Islam shares foundational rules with Christianity, during a Sept. 10 press conference in D.C. “In the name of God, the Merciful and Compassionate,” McCarrick said as he introduced himself to the audience at a meeting arranged by the Muslim Public Affairs Council. That praise of the Islamic deity is an important phrase in Islam, is found more than 100 times in the Koran, and is akin to the Catholic prayer, ”In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” McCarrick next claimed that “Catholic social teaching is based on the dignity of the human person… [and] as you study the holy Koran, as you study Islam, basically, this is what Muhammad the prophet, peace be upon him, has been teaching.” McCarrick was 71 when 19 Muslims brought Islam to the public eye by murdering 3,000 Americans on 9/11. He is one of the 213 Cardinals of the Catholic church, but is too old to vote in church debates. “Either the cardinal has studied the whole thing and does not know what he’s talking about, or he is making a somewhat misleading statement,” said Michael Meunier, head of the U.S. Copts Association. “The practice of the Muslim majority people that adhere to the Koran… have proven that [claim of equivalence] is not correct,” he told The Daily Caller during a Sept. 11 trip to Jordan. “Has Cardinal McCarrick converted to Islam?” asked a scornful critic, Robert Spencer, the best-selling author of many books on Islam. “‘Peace be upon him’ is a phrase Muslims utter after they say the name of [their reputed] prophet… [so] probably he is unaware of the unintended Islamic confession of faith he has just made,”said Spencer, who runs the Jihadwatch.org website. McCarrick is wrong to say “that Islam teaches the dignity of every human person,“ Spencer said. “Actually it teaches a sharp dichotomy between the Muslims, [who are called] ‘the best of people’ and the unbelievers [are called] ‘the most vile of created beings,’” Spencer told TheDC. “The Koran also says: ‘Muhammad is the apostle of Allah. Those who follow him are merciful to one another, harsh to the unbelievers,’” Spencer said. The same warning came from Archbishop Amel Nona, who was head of Chaldean Catholic Archeparch of Mosul in Iraq. In a August comment made to Europeans, he said that “You think all men are equal, but that is not true: Islam does not say that all men are equal  [and] your values are not their values.” “If you do not understand this soon enough, you will become the victims of the [immigrant] enemy you have welcomed in your home,” said Nona, who is now exiled — along with surviving Chaldean Catholics — in the Kurdish city of Erbil.

Headline:   Satanists Sell Out Controversial Oklahoma ‘Black Mass’ Event, Will Stage Exorcism Despite Christian Protests

The Satanist group that will stage a controversial “black mass” at an Oklahoma City civic center has said that all 88 tickets for its Sept. 21 event are sold out. The co-founder of the group revealed that the ritual will go ahead despite strong Christian protests and will feature a satanic exorcism, but will be “toned down” to comply with state health laws. “One of the dictates of the church is not only to educate the members but to educate the public, and to debunk the Hollywood-projected image of our beliefs,” Dakhma of Angra Mainyu’s Adam Daniels told ABC News. He added that the group will comply with state health laws and substitute vinegar for actions involving urine as part of the satanic ceremony. Daniels said that the ceremony will also feature Dakhma of Angra Mainyu deacons and priest who will stomp, spit on and use explicit language on an unconsecrated host, a wafer presented as a form of the resurrected Jesus Christ. A satanic exorcism intended to draw the Holy Spirit from a follower’s body will wrap up the event, an inversion of Roman Catholic exorcism believed to expel the devil from a person. “Our practices have gotten it to about 22 to 25 minutes,” the co-founder said of the length of the ritual. Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, Catholic Archbishop Paul Coakley, and over 80,000 people who have signed an online petition have all condemned the upcoming event. Fallin called the black mass a “disgusting mockery of the Catholic faith,” saying that it should be “equally repellent to Catholics and non-Catholics alike.” “It may be protected by the First Amendment, but that doesn’t mean we can’t condemn it in the strongest terms possible for the moral outrage which it is. It is shocking and disgusting that a group of New York City ‘satanists’ would travel all the way to Oklahoma to peddle their filth here. I pray they realize how hurtful their actions are and cancel this event,” she said.

Headline:   Football team forced to remove Christian crosses from helmets

Football players at Arkansas State University were ordered to either remove a Christian cross decal from their helmets or modify it into a mathematical sign after a Jonesboro attorney complained that the image violated the U.S. Constitution. The cross decal was meant to memorialize former player Markel Owens and former equipment manager Barry Weyer, said athletic director Terry Mohajir.  Weyer was killed in a June car crash. Owens was gunned down in Tennessee in January. However, the athletic director said he had no choice but to remove the crosses after he received a message from the university’s legal counsel. “That is a clear violation of the Establishment Clause as a state endorsement of the Christian religion,” Nisenbaum wrote. “Please advise whether you agree and whether ASU will continue this practice.” Ironically, the university’s legal counsel admitted in a letter that there were no specific court cases that addressed crosses on football helmets. Nevertheless, she feared the possibility of a lawsuit. “It is my opinion that we will not prevail on that challenge and must remove the crosses from the helmets or alter the symbols so that they are a (plus sign) instead of a cross,” she wrote in an email to the athletic director.

Headline:   Christian Churches and Schools Forced to Close in Nigeria Due to Muslim Slaughter of 350 Christians in One Week

Leaders of northeastern Nigeria’s Church of the Brethren in Nigeria (EYN) said Boko Haram attacks that have killed more than 300 Christians in the past week have forced the temporary closure of Kulp Bible College and many churches. In an emergency prayer message sent Saturday night (Sept. 6) to Morning Star News among others, EYN President Samuel Dali said the headquarters of the church is under grave threat from the Islamic extremist insurgents who seek to impose sharia (Islamic law) throughout the country. “Boko Haram violence has been getting worse every day, and our members are fleeing the area by the thousands,” he said. “Recent attacks in Borno and Adamawa states where are our churches are located have seen Boko Haram take over the Army base. As a result, about 350 Christians have been killed.” Following a recent online video declaration by Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau that Boko Haram was establishing an Islamic caliphate in Borno state’s Damboa and Gwoza towns and Yobe state’s Buni Yadi, including their surrounding villages, Boko Haram has killed more Christians and burned down more churches, Dali said.

Obama in the clouds on ISIS

Why would Barack Obama want to give hundreds of millions of dollars of weapons to groups inside Syria that are selling weapons to ISIS and regularly fighting alongside them?  Is he really that clueless about what is going on in the Middle East?  Obama’s strategy to “defeat ISIS” makes absolutely no sense at all. He has the audacity to stand up in front of the American people and “explain” to us why we need to spend hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to arm groups that are clearly aligned with ISIS.

First of all, if you want to defeat someone you don’t give weapons to their friends.

-The FSA and other groups of “moderate” fighters inside Syria do not consider ISIS to be an enemy.  Rather, they consider ISIS to be an important ally in the struggle to overthrow the Syrian government.  In fact, many “moderate” units have actually joined ISIS in recent months.  If Obama gives more weapons to the “moderate” fighters in Syria, it is inevitable that a lot of them will end up in the hands of ISIS. 

Secondly, if you want to conduct air strikes against ISIS, you have got to get permission from the nation where you will be conducting those air strikes.

Netanyahu: Israel fully supports Obama against ISIS

Less than 24 hours after US President Barack Obama laid out his strategy for the new chapter in the war on terror, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that “Israel fully supports Obama’s call for a united action against ISIS.” Netanyahu asked the crowd to imagine “would have happened if on 9/11 al-Qaeda had nuclear weapons? You know they would have used them against New York and Washington.” Israel has not been asked to be a part of this coalition – just like it was not asked to be part of the American coalition in 1991, when the US beat Iraq’s Saddam Hussein back from Kuwait, which he attempted to occupy.

To everyone who comes to my site, I need your help! See message below.

Hi, Frank
You mentioned  at the end of your videos.That you would pray for some one if they would E-mail.
I lost my job with the City of Eugene on the 9th. I wasn’t able to sleep so I decided to E-mail. My wife has had a job in salem for some time, so she had to move closer to work to drive that distance was killing her back. So she moved last month. The plan was I would get a job in salem working for the city, then move up a little later. But I wasn’t able to make it up and get a job with the city before I lost my Job here in Eugene. Any way  not ramble on. I would like to request prayer for a job. I know god doesn’t want families to be split apart.And I would like to move to Salem with my Wife and daughter.

Thanks frank.

Would you all please pray for Larry S. that the Lord open the door for more work for him.

Thanks, Frank

Headline: UN confirms 45 Fiji peacekeepers freed by Syrian rebels

The United Nations on Thursday confirmed the release of all 45 Fijian peacekeepers who had been held for two weeks by Al-Qaida-linked militants in the Golan Heights on the Israeli-Syrian border. “Today at 1430 hours local time, the 45 Fijian peacekeepers who had been detained were handed to UNDOF at Position 80,” the UN press office said in a statement. “All the 45 peacekeepers are in good condition and will proceed back to Camp Foar for medical assessment.” An Israel Defense Forces spokeswoman also said the Fijian peacekeepers had crossed into Israeli territory. The Fijians were kidnapped last month by the Nusra Front, an group battling the Syrian army, after the militants overran a crossing point in the so-called disengagement zone that the UN peacekeeping mission known as UNDOF has monitored since 1974. The cease-fire line was agreed after a 1973 Arab-Israeli war.

Headline: Israeli authorities shut down ‘Hamas-linked’ Islamist organization in Nazareth

Israel’s deputy foreign minister warned Thursday that Hamas was likely to resume “violence” if it feels it has made no political gains from upcoming talks in Cairo. The remarks came just two weeks after Israel and the Islamist terrorist group that dominates Gaza agreed a truce to end a 50-day war that killed more than 2,200 people and caused enormous destruction in the coastal territory. “There are chances that Hamas will restart its routine of violence, this is a possibility we can’t ignore,” Tzahi Hanegbi told Army Radio. “The resumption of fighting would not happen in the short term, since Hamas will wait for negotiations in Cairo, as well as the October Gaza donors’ conference. “But when Hamas understand that the war has not brought them the smallest political success, they could resume fighting.” Indirect talks between Hamas and Israel are to take place mid-September in Cairo, Palestinian officials say.

Headline: PA won’t deploy forces in Gaza unless Israel presents peace plan

The Palestinian Authority has no intention to deploy forces in the Gaza Strip if there is not also a clear diplomatic end-game peace initiative between Jerusalem and Ramallah on the horizon, a senior Palestinian source said Wednesday. But the source also said the US had threatened the PA with sanctions if it takes unilateral moves toward joining international organizations. There have recently been several conversations between Israeli and Palestinian officials with the hopes of restarting talks, the source said, but in all of them it was apparent that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu does not have in mind a new diplomatic plan or a map of a future Palestinian state. In a speech on August 20, Netanyahu spoke of a “new diplomatic horizon” in the wake of the Israel-Hamas conflict and expressed hope that Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas would take part. Abbas has increasingly voiced a demand that Israel produce a map showing just where it believe the borders of a Palestinian state should be, as a starting point for further negotiations. “Israel needs to sit with us and write a diplomatic plan that links Gaza and the West Bank, that forms a diplomatic horizon and a peace agreement,” the Palestinian source told The Times of Israel. “The PA doesn’t aim to send forces to the Gaza Strip or to deploy them there as a buffer force between Israel and Hamas without such a plan. We would reach a situation in which Hamas and Israel will alternately attack us. The PA has no intention to take a role in Gaza, or to police Gaza, without a diplomatic horizon.” The source also stressed that in the PA there has been a firm decision to not get involved in Gaza without a clear agreement from Hamas that all the weapons that are currently in the Gaza Strip become “one weapon under one authority” — that is, that Hamas concede authority to Abbas’s PA. He also warned that if there is no diplomatic breakthrough soon, within the next six to twelve months, security cooperation between Israel and the PA in the West Bank would stop.

Headline: Exclusive: Hamas threatened UNRWA personnel at gun-point during Gaza war

The Jerusalem Post obtained new information from informed sources this week that Hamas used violence and threats against UN personnel in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge. It was discovered that during the operation Hamas was hiding weapons in facilities run by the UN aid agency UNRWA and firing rockets from nearby proximity to UNRWA schools. The Post has now learned that UNRWA workers were subject to Hamas threats at gun-point during the operation. In a number of incidents, Hamas terrorists threatened to kill UNRWA personnel if they revealed that the Islamist group was using the UN facilities for purposes of war to ensure that they would not speak out about Hamas’s activities. Details have also emerged of the fate of medical supplies and food that were intended to be distributed by UNRWA to residents of Gaza in need of humanitarian aid. On a number of occasions, armed Hamas operatives forcefully confiscated the supplies, taking them for their own use.  In a few cases, both during and after the Gaza war, trucks carrying supplies to UNRWA facilities were intercepted and taken over by Hamas terrorists. With Cairo hosting a donors conference on the rehabilitation of the Gaza Strip in the coming months, the new revelations add to the question of whether such reconstruction aid can be provided without it falling into the hands of Hamas. The UN itself has acknowledged the problem. During the war, UNRWA officially condemned the placing of weapons in its installations, and called it “a flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law.” UNRWA Spokesperson Christopher Gunness denied the newly-reported details, saying “I have checked and double checked with sources in Gaza and there is no evidence of death threats made to UNRWA personnel. There is no evidence that any UNRWA aid was stolen. Our aid delivery is secure and we have shown it to be so time and time again over many years. Moreover, we have demonstrated this repeatedly to the satisfaction of the Israeli military authorities and major donor such as the US. Everything is checked under strict procedures from the point of origin to the point of delivery. There were two occasions after the fighting in 2008-9 when food aid was stolen. On both occasions I made strong public condemnations and on both occasions everything was returned. We are open, transparent and secure.”

Headline: Jordanian Parliamentarians: Cancel Gas Agreement with Israel

Some 40 Jordanian parliamentarians have demanded that the Jordanian government prevent the national electricity company from signing an agreement to import gas from Israel, the Jordanian-based Ammon News website reported on Wednesday. In a memorandum submitted by MP Khamis Attia during a session yesterday, the group said: “We the undersigned deputies call on the government to prevent the national electricity company from signing an agreement to import gas from the State of Israel.” “We deplore any agreement to import gas from Israel. The government or the national electricity company must not sign any agreement with Israel which would contribute to the occupation,” added the MPs. The MPs considered “the solution to Jordan’s energy problem is to use alternative energy through partnerships with other Arab states and not with Israel,” according to Ammon News. The move comes a week after the U.S.-based giant Noble Energy announced that Israel is to supply Jordan with natural gas from its vast Leviathan offshore gas field over a period of 15 years. A source close to the deal said it was worth $15 billion (11.4 billion euros) – a significant chunk of some $60 billion which Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has said will come from Israel’s offshore gas exports.

At least four Hezbollah fighters were killed overnight Wednesday during clashes with jihadists on the outskirts of a Lebanese border village in the Bekaa Valley, security sources told The Daily Star Thursday. Fierce clashes erupted between Hezbollah fighters and rebel groups a few kilometers away from the village of Ras Baalbek, near a Hezbollah position in the region. A total of 17 people were either killed or wounded but only four men were identified as Lebanese resistance fighters, the source said. The incident would have remained under wraps if the two ambulances did not breakdown on their way to a Bekaa hospital, a source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said.

Lebanese Army soldiers defused a car rigged with 100 kilograms of explosives Thursday on the outskirts of the Bekaa Valley border town of Arsal. In a statement, the military said that soldiers grew suspicious of a white Kia with a Syrian license plate parked on the side of the road in the Ain Shaab neighborhood in Arsal. The military cordoned off the area and discovered that the vehicle contained 100 kilograms of explosives packed in a metal box, and connected to wires and a detonator. Earlier, Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV had said the car was discovered near an Army checkpoint on the main road leading to Arsal, not far from a gas station with explosives hidden in its metal sheets. The Army launched an investigation into the incident after a military expert defused the bomb.

Headline: MP: Saudi Arabia should not deliver aid to Lebanese Army

Saudi Arabia should not deliver the $4 billion of pledged aid to Lebanon because it would be used in Hezbollah and Iran’s projects that target the country’s Sunnis and Christians, north Lebanon MP Khaled Daher said Thursday. “I call on king of Saudi Arabia to abstain from paying any sum from the $4 billion,” Daher said during a news conference at his Tripoli residence. Saudi Arabia has pledged $3 billion to purchase French military equipment and arms for Lebanon’s Army, while also donating $1 billion to strengthen security. “These billions will be spent on an Army whose decisions are not in the hands of the government,” Daher said. “Instead the [Army] is being used as a tool against Arabs and against the Sunnis and Christians.” The MP warns that Army Intelligence is marginalizing the Sunni community in the north – especially in Tripoli. “I announce my distrust of Lebanese Army Intelligence and its leadership, who have never defended us,” he said. According to Daher, Army Intelligence is cooperating with Hezbollah, which explains the disparity between the pressure on northerners and the lack of attention on Hezbollah’s regions and militias.

Syria Headline:    Syrian air raids kill 11 in extremist-held town

Syrian government airstrikes, including one on a crowded sheep market, killed at least 11 people on Thursday in a northern town controlled by the Islamic State group, activists said. After largely ignoring the rise of the al-Qaida splinter group over the past year, President Bashar Assad’s air force has begun to target Islamic State militants more regularly since the extremist faction seized control of much of northern Syria and a large part of neighboring Iraq in June. Two activist groups, the Aleppo Media Center and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said Thursday’s air raids struck the town of al-Bab in Aleppo province. The Britain-based Observatory said at least 11 people were killed and more than 17 wounded. The AMC put the death toll at 19 and said another 20 people were wounded.

Syria Headline:   Iraq Tribal Chief Says Arms to Militia are Being Sold in Syria

A prominent tribal chief in Iraq’s Anbar province claimed that weapons supplied to a Sunni militia to fight Islamic State militants are instead being sold off in Syria. Qasim al-Karwali, leader of the Tribes Revolution, accused Ahmad Aburish, head of the Awakening Council, of the illegal arms sales to opposition and government forces Syria.  Aburish denied the accusations. The Iraqi government and US army created the Sunni Awakening Council in 2006 to drive out al-Qaeda forces from Anbar, Iraq’s largest province. Since then Baghdad has maintained some level of ties with Aburish’s council, arming and funding them to win their allegiance against radical Sunni groups. Aburish denied the accusations, calling them “an attempt to stop our arms supplies to fight the armed groups.” “Armed groups, especially the IS try to distort public opinion against the Awakening Council by saying that we are selling our weapons to Syria,” Aburish told Rudaw. “These are baseless accusations.” In recent years, Anbar’s Sunni population have accused leaders of the Awakening Council of collaboration with Iraq’s Shiite government at the expense of local grievances. The accusations made by al-Karwali on Tuesday come at a time when the US and other NATO countries have pledged support to Iraqi groups who fight the Islamic State.

Islamic State jihadists kidnapped Thursday 20 people in a northern Iraqi village suspected of forming a local group to fight them, a security official and witnesses said. The kidnappings were carried out in Kirkuk province by dozens of fighters from IS, which led a major offensive that overran large areas of Iraq in June. Militants abducted 50 people from a second village in Kirkuk province last week after residents burned one of their positions and their flag, but released them several days later.

Previously, Kurdistan Regional President Massoud Barzani asked Peshmerga Minister Mustafa Seyd Qadr to have a plan of nationalizing Peshmerga forces and take them out from under control of Kurdish political parties so that they can become a professional army. Peshmerga Minister Qadr showed his full support for this plan. In the recent months, Peshmerga force is the only force currently fighting the Islamic State (IS) Militants in Northern Iraq. Furthermore, several western countries have approved plans to send military aids to Kurdish Peshmerga forces including US, UK, France and Germany.

Headline:   Islamic State jihadists planning encryption-protected ‘cyber caliphate’ so they can carry out hacking attacks on West

Islamic State militants are planning the creation of a ‘cyber caliphate’ protected by their own encryption software – from behind which they will launch massive hacking attacks on the U.S. and the West. Both Islamic State and Al Qaeda claim to be actively recruiting skilled hackers in a bid to create a team of jihadist computer experts capable of causing devastating cyber disruptions to Western institutions. They are now boasting it is only a matter of time before their plan becomes a reality. Steve Stalinsky, an executive director of the Middle East Media Research Institute, told Fox News: ‘They are forward thinking and are experimenting with hacking. In the future, the jihadists’ cyber army’s activities will become a daily reality.’ It was reported the possible targets of the jihadists’ cyber attacks will be the websites of U.S. government organisations, energy companies, transport systems and banks. Islamic State is noted for its use of advanced technology and social media on a scale unprecedented for such rebel groups. Large numbers of Islamic State fighters are young, highly educated Westerners who are fighting the holy war with sophisticated backgrounds and training with digital technology.

Headline:   ISIS Utilizing British Mosques for Recruitment and Planning Future Attacks

Networks of radicals are re-emerging in British mosques and elsewhere to encourage and facilitate Muslims wanting to travel to Syria and Iraq to fight for Islamic State (Isis). Until now most fighters from Britain who are known to have travelled to Syria have been persuaded and helped via online networks where extremists provide advice on crossing the Turkish order and linking up with Isis fighters. But a combination of a Turkish border clampdown and a focus by counter-terrorist police on taking down online networks has led to recruitment on the ground becoming more important, sources say. Communities of radicals recruiting young Brits are thought to include preachers, battle-hardened returning fighters and jihad sympathizers. Examples of on the ground recruitment have been seen in Cardiff and Birmingham – amid wider evidence that the UK is being specifically targeted by those with links to Isis in Europe.

Francis Taylor, under secretary for intelligence and analysis at DHS, told senators during a hearing that ISIL supporters are known to be plotting ways to infiltrate the United States through the border. “There have been Twitter, social media exchanges among ISIL adherents across the globe speaking about that as a possibility,” Taylor told Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) in response to a question about “recent reports on Twitter and Facebook of messages that would urge infiltration into the U.S. across our southwestern border.” “Certainly any infiltration across our border would be a threat,” Taylor said, explaining that border security agents are working to tighten measures that would prevent this from taking place.

Headline: Russia stokes tensions with the west by cutting gas exports to Poland

A decision by Russia to cut gas exports to Poland without warning has rekindled fears about Europe‘s reliance on Siberian gas at a time of increasing tension between Moscow and the west. The Polish state energy group, PGNiG, said it was trying to find out why volumes had been slashed by up to 24% when it had been exporting gas itself to Ukraine to make up for Russian shortfalls there. Its counterpart in Kiev, Ukrtransgaz, accused Kremlin-controlled Gazprom of penalising Poland and undermining onward gas supplies to Kiev. “Today Russia started limiting gas supplies to Poland in order to disrupt the reverse (flows) from Poland that we receive … Poland stopped reverse supplies to Ukraine in the range of 4m cubic metres,” said Ihor Prokopiv, chief executive of Ukrtransgaz, according to the Russian news agency, RIA. Mutual suspicions are higher than at any point since the collapse of the Soviet Union, following the conflict in Ukraine and western accusations that Russia has augmented the rebellion in the east with its own troops. Moscow denies the claim.

Russia will counter military moves by the U.S. and NATO with an array of new nuclear and conventional weapons, President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday as the military successfully test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile from a nuclear submarine. At the same time, he emphasized that Russia will not enter a new arms race and will tightly control its military budget to avoid overburdening the economy. Putin accused the West of using the crisis in Ukraine to reinvigorate NATO, warning that Moscow will ponder a response to the alliance’s decision to create a rapid-reaction “spearhead” force to protect Eastern Europe. The statement appeared to signal that the Russian leader is determined to pursue a tough course in the face of more Western sanctions over the Ukraine crisis that has sent Russia-West relations plummeting to their lowest point since the Cold War.

Headline:  Official: Report of missing planes from Libya untrue

A report that 11 planes were stolen or missing days after Libya’s Tripoli International Airport was overtaken by Islamist militias is unfounded, a State Department official told Washington lawmakers Wednesday while defending U.S. policy in the war-torn country. “We have had the opportunity to examine that issue, and I can say categorically it is without foundation,” said Gerald Feierstein, deputy assistant secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The report first appeared in the conservative website Washington Free Beacon, which cited an unnamed U.S. official. It alleged that intelligence agencies had warned that Islamist militias working in concert with al-Qaeda affiliates could use the airliners to launch attacks on U.S. allies in North Africa or Europe. And the attacks would be timed to the 9/11 anniversary. Feierstein dismissed the report as untrue during the hearing on the chaos gripping Libya. He said the U.S. has a long-term strategy to implement a political resolution for the oil-rich country. Warring militias currently control Libya’s major cities, and the elected parliament has fled the capital of Tripoli and is operating out of a car ferry docked in the eastern town of Tobruk.

Escalation of West-Russia relations poses a real threat to Armenia which depends on its giant northern neighbor politically and economically. West’s sanctions against Russian would fire back. Russia changed its state of the market, attracting new investors. Tension is on therise and no one can predict the possible results. This has put the Caucasus country in a great panic. Armenia made its final decision to join the Eurasian Economic Union and quite obviously the economic difficulties facing Russia will affect the Armenian economy as well. MP from the Republican Party of Armenia, Co-Chairman of the Commission for Armenia-EU Cooperation, is sure that the growing tension in Russia-West relations is bad for Armenia. Samvel Farmanyan referred to the current political turbulences in the Middle East and Ukraine as sign of the new cold war. And Armenia will have to experience tough conditions due to its undecided position between Russia and Europe. Farmanyan added that Armenia has always suffered from the escalation of ties between Russia and the West, as each time, the small Caucasus state felt itself at the junction of conflicting interests of the world’s superpowers. “In this context, I urge the political forces to stop dividing the Armenian society into pro-Russian and pro-Western groups,” he stressed. The government’s decision to join the Customs Union has divided the society into two groups, one supporting the prospective membership at the Russia-led alliance and the other one calling for proximity to Europe.

Headline: Arrests as Ferguson protesters plan shutdown

A planned highway shutdown fell through Wednesday as a wall of officers in riot gear kept people who planned to protest the Ferguson police shooting from walking onto Interstate 70 during the late afternoon commute. State troopers and St. Louis city and county officers warned the roughly 150 demonstrators who gathered in a nearby suburb to stay out of the road as they protested last month’s shooting of Michael Brown, a black, unarmed 18-year-old, by a white officer. There were nearly as many officers as demonstrators. Organizers said the protest in Berkeley was designed as an act of nonviolent civil disobedience similar to a 1999 demonstration in the same location. During that protest, hundreds of people shut down the interstate in a dispute over minority hiring for road construction projects. Highway Patrol Sgt. Al Nothum said that 35 people were arrested, most on charges of unlawful assembly. Nothum said protesters threw rocks, concrete blocks, bricks and bottles, leading to four charges of assault on a law enforcement officer. A smaller group later went to the nearby Ferguson police station before a heavy, late afternoon thunderstorm dispersed most of the protesters.

The proposed self-governing region is part of a historic peace accord agreed to earlier this year by the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

Headline: Dollar Falls Against Euro as Jobless Claims Increase

The dollar weakened versus the euro after a report showed the number of Americans filing for first-time unemployment benefits unexpectedly rose to a two-month high before the Federal Reserve meets next week. The greenback slipped after a 1.8 percent rally in the Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index this month on bets the Fed will boost interest rates by mid-2015. The pound rose against most major peers after a poll showed supporters of Scottish independence lost ground a week before a referendum that could lead to the breakup of the U.K. Canada’s dollar dropped as oil, the nation’s biggest export, fell to a 16-month low.

Headline: Japan rain forces about 1million people to leave their homes

Heavy rain has hit the Island of Hokkaido in northern Japan, forcing officials to order the evacuation of nearly one million people living near rivers. On Thursday, the torrential rain flooded roads across the prefecture, causing all transport to come to a standstill and grounding flights. According to Satoshi Ebihara, an official in Japan’s Meteorological Agency, at least 100 millimeters of rain per hour poured overnight in some parts of Hokkaido. He said at a news conference that unstable weather is anticipated to continue throughout Thursday due to low pressure systems. “It is a situation where landslides, flooding, and serious calamities may occur at any time,” Ebihara added, calling on residents in affected areas to follow the local authorities’ instructions for safe evacuation.

Headline: South Dakota sees earliest snowfall since 1888

An early September winter storm in the Black Hills has dumped up to 8 inches of snow in the area, while Rapid City received its earliest snowfall in more than 120 years. Jon Chamberlain, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Rapid City, said almost 1 inch of snow had fallen in downtown Rapid City by 8:30 a.m. while 2 inches was measured in higher elevations in town. The snowfall in downtown Rapid City is the earliest in the city since 1888, the NWS said. The previous early snowfall mark was seven-tenths of an inch on Sept. 13, 1970. Chamberlain said while it is unusual for Rapid City to see snowfall this early, it isn’t for the Black Hills. “It’s a little on the high side, though,” he said. Downtown Custer reported 8 inches of snow, while 7 inches was reported at Mount Rushmore. Other snowfall totals: 6 inches five miles south of Hill City; 4,5 inches in HIll City and 4 inches in Sundance, Wyo.

They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”

Headline: Al Qaeda Captures Syrian Town on Border with Israel

The Nusra Front, Al Qaeda’s official branch in Syria, released footage on Tuesday showing the capture of the town of Naba Al-Sakhr in Quneitra, along the border with Israel. It comes as rebel groups, including the Nusra Front, continue to make gains against regime positions along the border, in fierce clashes which have spilled over into Israel territory with increasing frequency. Although until now the fire into Israel has been inadvertent spillover, there is concern that some Islamist rebel groups, like the Nusra Front – which frequently talk of “liberating Al Quds (Jerusalem)” – could use such positions to launch attacks on Israel in the future.
