Afghanistan
Taliban-Designated Governor for Laghman Killed in Pakistan
Afghan follow up to yesterday’s report from the killing ground in Pakistan.
[ToloNews] Afghan officials on Sunday said that the Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
’s designated governor for Laghman
...Afghan province with a population of about 445,600, which is multi-ethnic and mostly a rural society. During the invasions of Alexander the Great, the area was known as Lampaka, wich is apparently Olde Macedonian for Laghman.The city of Mihtarlam serves as the bucolic capital of the province. The population is half Pashtun, the remainder Tadjik and Pashai. It had a repution for great wealth until it was conquered in the tenth century by Abu Mansur Sabuktigin.
He conquered it and set fire to the places in its vicinity which were inhabited by infidels, and demolishing the idol-temples, he established Islam in them, He marched and captured other cities and killed the polluted wretches, destroying the idolatrous and gratifying the Musulmans. After wounding and killing beyond all measure, his hands and those of his friends became cold in counting the value of the plundered property.
After that it was mostly notable for the production of dirt, rocks, and holy men...
known as Abdul Hadi Pashaeewal
...spelt Abdul Hadi Pashaiwal in the Pakistani dialect...
was killed in an attack by unidentified gunnies near his residence in the city of Beautiful Downtown Peshawar
...capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, administrative and economic hub for the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan. Peshawar is situated near the eastern end of the Khyber Pass, convenient to the Pak-Afghan border. Peshawar has evolved into one of Pakistain's most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities, which means lots of gunfire...
on Saturday evening.

The Taliban has not confirmed the incident.

"His killing in Pakistain has a negative impact in terms of morale (on their fighters) because it raises the question among them about why it happened there. It is obvious that their foundation is there (in Pakistain) and it will influence their ranks," Laghman police chief Manzoor Stanekzai said.

Sources said that Pashaeewal was a resident of Alishang district in Laghman and was assigned as designated governor for Laghman for the past one year and he was a member of the Taliban’s military commission.

Sources said that at some point he came to an area near the city of Mehtarlam, the center of Laghman province.

Laghman residents said they are concerned about the security situation in the province.

Local officials and activists said the death of the Taliban member would have a good impact on security if the news were true.

"The threats are there. Security forces are traveling in big convoys," said Mohammad Zahir Husainkhil, a member of Laghman's provincial council.

"Clashes happen in areas near the city. In some cases, armed opposition fighters roam in villages on the outskirts of (Mehtarlam) city," said Hanifullah Ghamkhwar, a civil society activist in Laghman.

Taliban front man Zabiullah Mujahid said that so far they have not gathered the required information about the incident.

Sea-Watch Rescues 147 Migrants Off Libyan Coast
[LibyaReview] The German non-governmental organization, Sea-Watch, rescued 147 migrants colonists off the coast of Libya during two rescue operations carried out by its ship, Sea-Watch 3.

In tweets, the organization stated that it had rescued 102 migrants colonists on a rubber boat that sent a distress call on Saturday. It had rescued 45 migrants colonists, including 15 minors, who were trying to reach Europa
...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum...
by sea via Libya.

It is noteworthy that the Sea Watch 3 ship has participated in the rescue of more than three thousand migrants colonists since entering service in November 2017. While the French organization, SOS Mediterranean, in early February 2021 has rescued more than 400 people on board its Ocean Viking.

The Sea-Watch 3 ship left Burriana Port to the Mediterranean again after seven months, and the ship started its search and rescue efforts last Wednesday.

In July 2020, the Italian Coast Guard stopped the Sea Watch 3 vessel, due to "technical and operational defects that may affect the safety of its crew and passengers." It was not the first time the ship was subjected to seizure, as the Italian authorities had previously issued a decision to seize it in 2019 for a period of five months.

Sea-Watch 3 is returning to the sea this time after obtaining a maritime safety certificate from the Spanish authorities.

Libya has become a preferred point of departure for thousands of people who want to cross the Mediterranean Sea toward Europe after the insecurity and chaos that the 2011’s civil war. The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has reported that about 12,000 migrants colonists were intercepted at the Mediterranean Sea and returned to Libya in 2020.

15 Migrants Drown off Libyan Coast
[PUBLISH.TWITTER]

In a statement, Msehli added that the victims were on a rubber boat carrying at least 110 migrants colonists, who embarked from the Libyan coastal town of Zawiya on Friday. The boat started to sink early Sunday, and the Libyan Coast Guard managed to "rescue at least 95 migrants colonists, including six women and two children," she said.

Sunday’s shipwreck was the latest along the central Mediterranean migration route. At least 41 migrants colonists were reported dead last week, part of a group of some 120 migrants colonists on a dinghy that left the North African country on 18 February. Smugglers often pack desperate families into ill-equipped rubber boats that stall and founder along the perilous route.

Portland protesters smash businesses as locals scream at them to 'go home'
[NYPOST] Protesters smashed up several businesses during the latest night of destruction in Portland, Oregon — with fed-up locals screaming at them to "go home," according to reports.

Around 150 black-clad protesters marched through the troubled City of Roses late Saturday, trashing businesses during "direct action" against Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Oregonian said.

"Windows were broken at a grocery store, restaurant, bank, shipping business, and multiple coffee shops," Portland police said of the two-hour rampage.

Targets included a Chipotle, Starbucks and even an Urban Pantry, KOIN News said, with social media images showing anti-ICE graffiti also scrawled across numerous buildings, including the ICE buidling.

A security car was completely destroyed, according to one video on social media — while another clip showed the mob shining lights at diners as they banged against the windows.

It was the worst violence in weeks in the city which saw almost constant destruction last year.

Many locals appeared to have had enough, with KOIN News news hound Jennifer Cowling catching one local ticking off a protester shouting "police go home" by yelling, "You go home!"

"Ten years from now, what are you gonna do? Keep doing the same thing?" a shirtless man screamed at the mob from his balcony, according to videographer Brendan Gutenschwager.

[Twitter]





Police resources to deal with the riot had been strained by multiple shootings in the city that same evening.

The riot began at about 9 p.m. Pacific and lasted over two hours. Police warned the rioters over the loudspeaker with this message:

To those marching in the Pearl District: Officers have observed and community members have reported members of this group have damaged buildings in the Pearl District. Immediately stop participating in criminal behavior including damaging property. Failure to adhere to this order may subject perpetrators to detention, citation, arrest, or use of crowd control agents, including, but not limited to, tear gas and/or impact weapons. Immediately stop participating in criminal activity.

The news release went on to explain that "while tear gas use is currently restricted, state law requires that warning be given."

The Portland Police Bureau (PPB) explained that few officers were available to deal with the rioters due to multiple shootings across the city.

"Police response was constrained by multiple shooting incidents happening across the city, limiting the officers available to address the criminal behavior in the protest. Still, officers responded to the criminal behavior and made two arrests. Items that could be used as weapons were seized, including a large bat," PPB reported in a news release.

Police arrested one adult and one teenager. "The adult was issued a criminal citation and released (due to current COVID-19 restrictions for booking at the Multnomah County Detention Center). The juvenile was released to his parents and will be given a future hearing date," the release explained.

Last June, the Portland City Council voted to cut at least $15 million from the police budget, eliminating 84 positions.

LIBERAL LOGIC IN PRACTICE
They hate I.C.E., so they are attacking their Social Hangouts and food establishments. While also showing the Biden Socialist-Democrats have released a Destructive Political Group, which they can no longer control.

The question now is:
Will Socialist history of the 1930's yet again repeat itself? Should we expect a sudden purge (eg. Night of the Long Knives) now that their services are no longer needed as a Political Harassment & Enforcement group.

NOTE: Think arming family cars with 2 Large canisters of BEAR MACE☺.

Gunmen kill Islamic cleric, his son, and student in Pakistan
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] A trio of button men shot and killed a religious holy man, his teenage son and a student on the outskirts of Pakistain’s capital Islamabad, police said, amid a rise in bad boy attacks.For the latest headlines, follow our Google News channel online or via the app.

Police officer Shahzad Khan said the killing took place in the Bhara Kahu neighborhood when Mufti Ikramur Rehman was heading toward his car with his 13-year-old son and a seminary student late Saturday night.

He said three assailants fired several shots before fleeing the scene. The holy man, his son and the student received multiple gunshot wounds and died at a hospital.

No one immediately grabbed credit for the attack and Khan said an investigation was underway to ascertain the identity of the assailants and the motive behind the killings.

Ikramur Rehman was affiliated with the party of firebrand
...firebrands are noted more for audio volume and the quantity of spittle generated than for any actual logic in their arguments...
holy man Maulana Fazlur Rehman
...Deobandi holy man, known as Mullah Diesel during the war against the Soviets, his sympathies for the Taliban have never been tempered by honesty...
, who heads an 11-party opposition alliance to topple the government.
What odds Ikramur Rehman and Fazlur Rehman are related?
Militant violence in Pakistain is on the rise. Last week, four vocational school instructors who advocated for women’s rights were traveling together when they were bumped off in a Pakistain border region. A Twitter death threat against Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai
...a Pashtun blogger and advocate for girls' education from Mingora, in Swat. She is esteemed as an ambassador of international good will, even though she can't go home lest some fellow in a turban shoots her in the head again...
attracted an avalanche of trolls who heaped abuse on the young champion of girls’ education. A couple of men on a cycle of violence opened fire on a police check-post not far from the Afghan border killing a young police constable.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Netanyahu blames Iran for boat attack, says 'striking' back
[France24] Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused arch-foe Iran on Monday of a recent attack on an Israeli-owned ship, noting his country was "striking back" the morning after a raid on Syria.

The latest escalation between the sides came as the international community was trying to salvage the troubled 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.

"It is indeed an Iranian act, that's clear," Netanyahu told public broadcaster Kan, referring to the MV Helios Ray, which was last week hit by a blast in the Gulf of Oman leaving two holes in its side.

"As for a reaction -- you know my policy," he continued.

"Iran is Israel's greatest enemy, I'm determined to block it, we're striking at it throughout the region," he said.

Netanyahu's remarks came hours after Syrian air defences intercepted what they said were Israeli missiles over Damascus.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, said the strike hit the area of Sayyida Zeinab south of Damascus, where Iranian Revolutionary Guards and Lebanese Hezbollah forces are reported to be present.

But Israel has probably taken out between several dozen and several hundred in the past two years.

IRG and their allies are still active in the east of Syria.

Syrian air defence missiles defending the sky of Damascus against Israeli airstrikes
[PUBLISH.TWITTER]

Regional intelligence sources say Iran’s Quds Force and militias it backs, whose presence has spread in Syria in recent years, have a strong presence in the Sayeda Zainab neighbourhood of southern Damascus where Iranian backed militias have a string of underground bases.

Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
has built underground tunnels and spread decoys to help mitigate the impact of repeated Israeli strikes on its elaborate military infrastructure in the country, Syria military defectors say.
From the Times of Israel:
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britannia-based war monitor which has had its credibility questioned in the past, said the strike hit the area of Sayyida Zeinab south of Damascus, where the Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah are present.
