Deadly shrine bombing plot foiled in Kabul city
[Khaama] The Afghan cops have foiled a deadly bombing plot to target the worshippers in a shrine in Kabul city, the security officials said late on Monday.

The Criminal Investigation Department officials confirmed that the security forces discovered an improvised bomb from a shrine in the first police district of the city in Shudai Saleehin.

The officials further added that the forces of Evil had placed the explosives and were looking to detonate the bomb with a remote control among the worshippers.

According to the officials, the explosives were discovered during an operation conducted based on a tip-off in Sufi Ashqari shrine.

The anti-government armed Lion of Islam groups have not commented regarding the report so far.

This comes as the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) today released a special report documenting a sharp increase in attacks against places of worship, religious leaders and worshippers, including attacks against Shi’a Moslem places of worship and congregations.

According to the report, since 1 January 2016, UNAMA has recorded 833 civilian casualties (261 killed and 572 injured) in 42 attacks targeting places of worship, religious leaders and worshippers. Civilian casualties from these types of attacks since the beginning of 2016 represent nearly double the cumulative total documented between 2009 and 2015.

4 US soldiers wounded in Kandahar suicide car bombing
[Khaama] At least four US soldiers sustained injuries in a suicide car kaboom in southern Kandahar province of Afghanistan.

The incident took place on Monday afternoon in the vicinity of Dand district of Kandahar province after a jacket wallah detonated a vehicle packed with explosives near the convoy of the foreign forces.

"Four U.S. soldiers were maimed in Kandahar province, Afghanistan, from a vehicle-borne improvised bomb, according to Army Lt. Col. Koné Faulkner, a front man for the Resolute Support mission.

"We can confirm reports that a vehicle-born improvised bomb detonated in Kandahar province at approximately 2 p.m. today," Faulkner told Military Times. "There were a total of four U.S. service members injured and all are in stable, pH balanced condition in U.S. medical treatment facilities.

He said there were no coalition fatalities as a result of the attack, he added

The Talibs group in Afghanistan has grabbed credit behind the attack.

This comes as the security situation in Kandahar had proven during the recent months although the anti-government armed bad boy groups are attempting to destabilize the key southern provinces.

According to the security officials, the anti-government armed bad boy groups are attempting to carry out suicide kabooms and indirect attacks as their insurgency was suppressed during the offensive counter-terrorism operations in the summer time.

Taliban's shadow-governor for Farah was also among those wounded in the battle, he said.

Meanwhile in a separate incident Taliban operatives launched a coordinated attack on ANA check posts in Farah's Balabolok district killing at least five ANA servicemen.

Africa Horn
Suicide Car Bomb Hits AMISOM Convoy Near Mogadishu
[RADIOSHABELLE] At least one person was confirmed dead, and several maimed after a boom-mobile blast struck a military convoy transporting African Union

forces near Mogadishu, the Somali capital.

A witness said a Toyota Noah packed with explosives exploded at AMISOM armored vehicles while passing through Garasabaley village, on Mogadishu-Afgoye road.

A passer-by civilian died in the blast and several sustained injuries, according to an eyewitness who spoke to Radio Shabelle by phone from the area.

No group has yet grabbed credit for the suicide kaboom on AU forces, but, local authorities blamed Al-Shabaab

for being behind the carnage.

AMISOM, however, has yet released any statement regarding the attack.

U.S.: 40 Islamists Killed in Four Days of Somalia Strikes
[IsraelTimes] The Pentagon said Monday that U.S. forces had killed 40 Shabaab and Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
fighters in a series of strikes on Somalia that began late last week.

The U.S. military has launched five strikes since Thursday on jihadist positions in the Horn of Africa country, killing 36 members of the al-Qaeda-affiliated Shabaab group and four from the Islamic State group, said Colonel Rob Manning, a front man.

"In coordination with the federal government of Somalia, U.S. forces conducted five Arclight airstrikes in Somalia against al-Shabaab
... the Islamic version of the old Somali warlord...
and ISIS, from November 9 to the 12th, removing more than 40 Death Eaters from the battlefield," Manning said.

The strikes were carried out by the U.S. Africa Command, and followed two devastating attacks attributed to Islamic gunnies in Mogadishu that left about 385 people dead last month.

The surge in U.S. operations came after President Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
in March loosened the constraints on the U.S. military to take actions against alleged Death Eaters when they judge it is needed, without seeking specific White House approval.

A pair of U.S. dronezaps that killed several gunnies on November 3 marked the first time American forces hit Islamic State group fighters in Somalia.

6 die in Aden bombing attacks
The group affiliated to Daesh in Yemen claimed responsibility for a suicide car bombing early Tuesday that targeted security forces in the southern port city of Aden, killing at least six people and injuring scores.

Two suicide bombers detonated a car packed with explosives in Yemen’s southern city of Aden on Tuesday, killing at least six people, witnesses said.

Dozens of other people, including civilians, were wounded in the attack, which occurred outside a camp used by a local security force organized by the Saudi-led coalition fighting Yemen’s Houthi terrorist militia.

Witnesses described a huge explosion that shook the Al-Mansoura district in northern Aden, destroying at least one building and shattering windows in others.

The attack caused panic in this densely populated area, which is busy with schools, markets and street vendors.

Ambulances rushed to the scene to evacuate the wounded. Pictures circulating on social media showed several young men in military uniform being carried away.

Extremist militants have exploited the fighting in Yemen to try to recruit more followers and expand their influence in the country, which sits near main shipping lanes.

The camp attacked on Tuesday was occupied by a local force called the Security Belt, in Al-Mansoura.

The Security Belt was set up by the United Arab Emirates to help restore security to the port city, the temporary capital of Hadi’s government after the Saudi-led coalition helped local fighters drive the Houthis terrorist militia out of Aden in 2015.

The Daesh affiliate in Yemen claimed responsibility in an online statement, hours after the attack. It named the suicide bomber as Abu Hagar Al-Adani, which indicates the attacker hailed from Aden.

This attack was the second by Daesh in Aden in less than two weeks. On Nov. 5, militants attacked the security headquarters in Aden, killing 18 and injuring many more, taking over the building, and seizing hostages.

Dutch woman convicted of terrorism for joining IS
[IsraelTimes] 22-year-old convert to Islam receives 2-year prison sentence for traveling to Syria to join terror group with her partner, children.

A Dutch court sentenced a young woman to two years in prison Monday for traveling to Syria to join the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
terror group in one of the first such cases in the Netherlands.

"The court considers it proven that she planned to prepare and promote terrorist activities," the Rotterdam District Court said.

"Therefore she is sentenced to two years in jail of which 13 months are suspended for three years," the court said in a statement.

Because the woman, Laura Hansen, already spent another year in detention, she will effectively not go back to jail, the judges added.

She was also acquitted of belonging to the IS terror group, the Dutch news agency ANP said.

The 22-year-old convert to Islam was incarcerated
Youse'll never take me alive coppers!... [BANG!]... Ow!... I quit!
when she flew back to Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport in July 2016 after apparently fleeing the jihadists.

Hansen, her partner and two young children left The Netherlands in September 2015 to join the IS group where her husband wanted to join jihadist fighters.

"Judging from her statements, the accused knew even before her departure that her husband harbored sympathy for IS and that he wanted to travel to Syria," the judges said.

Originally from the town of Leidschendam, Hansen told judges she was forced to travel to Raqqa, in Syria, in September 2015 by her violent partner.

Months later though she fled with her children to a Kurdish-controlled area in Iraq with the help of her father in The Netherlands.

Prosecutors asked for a 35-month jail term with 24 months suspended under strict conditions.

Hansen is now not allowed to come close to the Dutch borders or any airports and was ordered not to make contact with any current or former jihadists.

She met her partner, known as Ibrahim I., via the internet in 2013, when she was just 17 but had already converted to Islam, the public broadcaster NOS has said.

He was put to work making bombs for IS in Syria and his fate is unknown.

At least 280 people, a third of whom are women, are believed to have left The Netherlands to fight in Iraq and Syria for jihadist groups, according to Dutch counter-terrorism officials.

About 45 have been killed, 45 have returned home and another 190 are thought to still be in the region, although their exact fate remains unknown.

Experts told Dutch media Monday that Laura H.’s case was one of the first involving a woman traveling to Syria.

Mall of America Stabber Identified as Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman
[PJ] Police have named the man accused of stabbing two people in the dressing room area of Macy's at the Mall of America on Sunday.

Officials identified the 20-year-old suspect as Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman of Minneapolis. Police are calling this incident a botched theft attempt.

According to Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts, Abdirahaman went into a dressing room in the men's department and attempted to steal some property.

The victim was stabbed after finding the suspect pawing through his belongings in the dressing room. When family members rushed in to help, a second victim was slashed. Potts said family members were able to disarm the suspect, and judging by his mug shot, they managed to rough him up a bit too.

#5  Check out the local Star Tribune comment section on this story. Minnesotans are pissed. Our turd for brains Gov. Mark Dayton's take on anti Jihad welfarests is worth noting.

One comment on JihadWatch says it all.

Jack Diamond says
Nov 14, 2017 at 12:01

Gov. Mark Dayton has told residents of the state that if they are not comfortable living among the refugees they “should find another state.”…

Why should the residents feel uncomfortable? Just a quick perusal of recent news…

“Over the past two years (2015) more than 20 {Somali} Americans {sic} from the Minneapolis area have traveled overseas to fight alongside terrorists under the Islamic State banner, according to the FBI.”

“Six young Somalis in Minnesota: “Abdullahi Yusuf, Zacharia Abdurahman, Hanad Musse, Abdirizak Warsame, Adnan Farah and Hamza Ahmed — have pleaded guilty to conspiring to travel to Syria to join ISIS,” Minnesota Public Radio reported in May.

“U.S. District Court Judge Michael Davis didn’t sugarcoat his words … as he sentenced three Minnesota men on terrorism charges,” KSTP reported in November:

“This was a jihadi cell,” Davis said firmly to the entire courtroom. “Everyone talks about Brussels or Paris having a cell; we have a cell in Minneapolis.”

“At least two of the 22 Minnesotan Somalis who joined al-Shabab have committed suicide bombings…

“Mohamoud Hassan {was} a chemical engineering student at the University of Minnesota voted “most friendly” by his high school classmates. Two years later, Hassan was dead in Mogadishu…”

“Amina Farah Ali, a woman from Rochester, Minnesota’s third-largest city, has been sentenced to 20 years on 13 terror-related counts. Her accomplice, Hawo Mohamed Hassan, was sentenced to ten years. Ali and Hassan went door-to-door in Rochester and the Twin Cities soliciting charity for Somalia’s poor. The money was then diverted to al-Shabab. On a wiretap used as evidence in the trial, Ali is heard saying, “let the civilians die,” to an al-Shabab operative in Somalia. After her conviction, Ali told the court, “I am very happy. I’m going to the heaven no matter [what] …. Also, you guys go to the hell…. We know God. We know justice. And also I’m very sorry for the one who doesn’t know God and who puts the injustice [on the people].” Nine others were sentenced on the same day as Ali and Hassan, while 18 more were charged with related crimes.”

“Somali refugee Dahir Adan attacked nine Americans with a knife at a mall in St. Cloud, Minn. before an off-duty police officer shot and killed him on Sept. 17, 2016.

Two months later Somali refugee Abdul Razak Ali Artan attacked 11 Americans with a knife and then a car on the campus of Ohio State University in Columbus before a campus police officer shot and killed him on Nov. 28, 2016.”

“Somali refugees are the most difficult to deal with. They are easily manipulated towards criminal activities, making it difficult to negotiate with them at times,” according to a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees official working in Pakistan, who spoke with the Express Tribune in 2012.

Is there more for residents to worry about than Islamic-inspired terror attacks?

“In 2015, Minnesota authorities charged Somali man Ahmed Hersi Abdi with two first-degree sexual misconduct for allegedly raping a 10-year-old girl in her apartment.”

2016: “KSTP-TV reports that a female resident, who understandably remains anonymous for her protection, told the network that she and other locals were attacked by a mob of up to 30 Somali Muslim men on June 28. Police were called to the scene at around 9:30 a.m. after the mob of migrants showed up in front of citizens’ homes, yelling threatening comments and promising terrorist activity.

“They were screaming at the house that they were going to kidnap you and they were going to rape you,” one Minneapolis resident told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS. “It was a very traumatizing experience.”

According to the police report, between 20 and 30 young men descended upon a woman’s house threatening to kidnap and rape her. The migrants were reportedly driving their vehicles up over the curbs and onto the lawn while shooting off fireworks and screaming threats in the Lake Calhoun neighborhood.

The police report states that the men were yelling “jihad” and even told the female resident that the could kidnap, rape, and marry the already married woman because it was legal under “Shawra (Sharia) Law.” As expected, even the station that picked up the story somehow “missed” these references.”

But Minnesota residents, if you don’t like it, YOU can just leave. These Muslims are here to stay and are more wanted than you are. They don’t need to assimilate either, you do. So says Gov. Mark Dayton.

#9  Our esteemed Governor is the recipient of shock treatments. That is usually given after all drugs have failed.

As for Somalis...They refuse to integrate into larger society or learn English. They continue their feuds from Somalia right on the streets of Minneapolis. If they can't find their target here in the Twin Cities, they'll kill one of the guy's friends or even classmates.

The scary thing is these Somalis are considered "the good Somalis." The Swedish government recently sent a fact finding tour to the twin cities to find out "why the American Somalis are so much better behaved than the Swedish Somalis."

Court hikes sentences of 2 men who tried to join IS
[IsraelTimes] Separately, 3 indicted for plan to transfer thousands of shekels to Gazoo Strip

The Supreme Court on Monday accepted an appeal by state prosecutors to increase the sentences of two Arab Israeli men who tried to join the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....

They were both tossed in the slammer
You have the right to remain silent...
in 2016 and accused of planning to shoot IDF soldiers, the Shin Bet said at the time.

Bahaa Eldin Ziad Hasan Masarwa was convicted of contacting a foreign agent and supporting a terror organizations and originally sentenced last March to 46 months in prison with a 12-month suspended sentence. Ahmad Nabil Ahmad was convicted of conspiracy to commit a crime and given 22 months and a six-month suspended sentence.

After accepting the prosecutor’s appeal the court increased Masarwa’s sentence to 58 months in prison and that of Ahmad to 30 months.

Meanwhile Monday, three men, one of whom is already in prison for security offenses, were indicted on terror-related offenses including money laundering, the Justice Ministry said in a statement.

The Northern District prosecutor’s office filed indictments at the Nazareth District Court against Ahmed Hassan, 25, a Hamas, a contraction of the Arabic words for "frothing at the mouth", terror group operative who is already in prison for security offenses; Sa’ad Abu Varda, 26, a resident of the Gazoo Strip who had been residing in Israel without a permit since 2011; and Ayman Salhav, 42, from Jerusalem.

All were accused of security offenses including contacting with a foreign agent, membership in a terror organization and money laundering.

According to court papers Varda would send money from his wages to his family in Gazoo via various channels, even though he knew that transfers of upwards of NIS 12,000 ($3,400) from Israel to Gazoo require official permission.

During October 2017, Hassan, a convicted member of Hamas who in 2009 began a 17-year sentence for security offenses, telephoned Salhav and instructed him to go to a meeting with Varda in Nazareth where he was to receive sums of money destined for transfer to the Gazoo Strip.

Some of the money was intended to be paid as compensation to a former prisoner in Israel who was released as part of the 2011 prisoner exchange deal for IDF soldier Gilad Shalit.

Salhav attended the meeting and received NIS 48,500 ($13,690) from Varda. He was arrested shortly afterwards near Afula.

Prosecutors asked that Varda and Salhav be held until the end of proceedings.
