Syrian Woman Secretly Films Life in Raqqa under ISIS

French television aired video footage secretly shot by a Syrian woman currently  living the city of Raqqa, the unofficial capital of ISIS.  The woman carried a camera under her niqab.   The film shows women at an underground Internet cafe speaking in perfect French to relatives in France.

What would draw a woman from Europe to this?  What would draw a woman from France to a group that beheaded the French tourist in Algeria? Nationality is irrelevant. Islam and wanting the triumph of Islam.

Muslim Day Parade in NYC

The 29th annual Muslim Day Parade in New York City

America is home to people of different national origins. For years Americans have marched in parades in NYC demonstrating pride in their heritage: Irish, Korea, Poland, West Indies… The parades of many groups demonstrate aspects of their heritage, pride in their heritage, it is not strictly only a religous heritage shown in the parades.

The 29th annual Muslim Day Parade in New York City was not a Muslim-American Day Parade but a Muslim Day Parade with the theme “Islam and America Share Common Values.” What shared values would those be?  The focus of the parade was Islam and the triumph of religious Islam. How is that an Islamic and American shared value?

Retired Israeli Brigadier General Danny Gold helped develop Israel’s Iron Dome missile-defense system.  The Iron Dome system that has been shooting down Hamas rockets has become a core component of Israel’s defense. Gold said the Iron Dome benefits from “a robust design that can cope with future uncertainty”, it was designed to be quickly updated to counter more advanced missiles in the future.

When Gold first proposed the Iron Dome support for its development was hesitant.  Gold was told, “It cannot be done,” “it’s to science fiction”, with many thinking it would be a “15 to 20 years project.”  It took Gold two years of lobbying to receive the funds to begin developing the Iron Dome.

From idea to completion went quickly after funding was approved for the Iron Dome.  There are 15 major components involved.  Radar scans the sky, when Hamas launches rockets radar identifies each projectile, calculates its flight path, marks the rockets most likely to hit populated areas or strategic assets, fires an interceptor missile at the target, and destroys the target in the air.

The Iron Dome success rate is estimated at 90 %.

Talibans Propaganda Effort in Video of Freed U.S. Soldier

US Prisoner Exchange

It seems that the Taliban who handed over Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl to the U.S. Special Forces team in the prisoner exchange in Afghanistan were disapointed the Americans “did not stop to talk or exchange polite greetings.”

But once on the ground, the Americans, to the dismay of the Taliban, proved uninterested in any pomp. They rushed through the encounter and did not stop to talk or exchange polite greetings, as is customary in Afghanistan, even during hostage releases. The narrator complained that they had managed to shake hands with only two of the Americans, and that one of them had hastily shoved his left hand forward, considered a particularly rude gesture in Afghanistan.

High School student shoves elderly teacher to the ground

school signA 16-year-old young man has been charged with injury to the elderly after cell phone video captured him shoving a substitute teacher at Nimitz High School in Houston, Texas.

“She took his phone because he was in class texting,” said senior Calvin Bennet Rainwater. “ We’re not supposed to have our phones out. He pushed her like three times.”

“Aldine Independent School District police on Thursday filed a criminal charge of injury to an elderly person against a 16-year-old male student. The charge stems from an incident that occurred Thursday afternoon at Nimitz High School when a substitute teacher confiscated the student’s cell phone. The student is accused of physically shoving the substitute teacher to the ground and then retrieving his cell phone. Other students witnessed the incident and immediately reported it to school officials, who then summoned an ambulance and the campus-based police officer. The substitute teacher, who is a retired Aldine teacher, was treated at a local hospital and then released.”

Updated: Boko Haram video shows missing Nigerian schoolgirls clad in full-length hijabs

Update:  Boko Harem video of girls may be a fake.  “They are not the same. They are not the girls abducted,” said Ojutiku, a Southern Baptist in Raleigh, N.C., who receives frequent updates from members of the grassroots group Lift Up Now. He co-founded the group to address political, economic and social challenges in his homeland Nigeria.

More likely, the Monday (May 12) video is a ruse by the Islamic terrorists to mislead those searching for the girls, Ojutiku said.” Baptist Press

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has released the names of 180 schoolgirls that were kidnapped from the school in Chibok, Nigeria.
