Azerbaijan praises ‘very effective’ Israeli drones in fighting with Armenia

[IsraelTimes] A top Azerbaijani official confirms his country has deployed Israeli-made military drones to combat areas in the contested Nagorno-Karabakh region, and praises Israel’s Harop drone in particular as "very effective."

Israeli technology "helps Azerbaijan to provide security and safety to its nationals," Hikmet Hajiyev, a top foreign policy adviser to President Ilham Aliyev, tells the Israeli news site Walla.

"Armenia tries to over-exaggerate the issue" of Israeli military aid, he says, but adds, "If Armenia is scared of the drones that Azerbaijan is using, Armenia should stop its imposed occupation."

Asked if the drones Azerbaijan has deployed to the front are Israeli made, Hajiyev replies, "Some of them, yes."

He calls Israel Aerospace Industries’ Harop drone "very effective," says they are used in a "kamikaze" capacity on the battlefield, and offers "a big ’chapeau’ to the engineers who designed it."

Heavy fighting
... as opposed to the more usual name-calling or slapsy...
between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces over the separatist region of Nagorno-Karabakh continued for a fourth straight day today, in the biggest escalation of a decades-old conflict in years that has killed dozens and left scores of others maimed.

German Biker Gang Stages Vigil to Protect Munich Synagogue During Yom Kippur Services, Neo-Nazis Haunt Jews Hatefully Across Scandinavia
[Algemeiner] Members of a German bikers club staged a vigil outside the main synagogue in Munich on Monday pledging to protect the city’s Jewish community as it held services for Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar.
Bless them for taking a stand.
About 70 people — including 20 leather and denim-clad bikers from the "Kuhle Wampe" club — gathered outside the synagogue on Jakobsplatz to mark the first anniversary of the attack by a neo-Nazi
...adherents of a philosophy that was seen even at the time as pure evil, which makes them either consciously and purely evil, or attention-seeking ratbags. Pick one, or both....
gunman on a synagogue in the city of Halle in which two people were murdered.

The club, which actively campaigns against racism and antisemitism, was first launched in the 1970s by bikers who opposed the nationalist and right-wing tendencies that dominated the scene at the time.

Oliver Westermann, a biker who initiated the vigil, told the assembled crowd, "We’re here to protect the synagogue."

Other members of the club held up a white banner bearing the words "Together for Our Synagogue" in Hebrew.

Other speakers at the event included Charlotte Knobloch — the head of the Munich Jewish community — who recalled her enthusiasm when Westermann suggested the vigil a few weeks ago.

Praising the bikers’ for their commitment, Knobloch said that "the name ’Yom Kippur’ has sat heavily in our hearts since Halle."

More than 50 worshippers who attended the Halle synagogue on Yom Kippur in 2019 would have faced a certain massacre at the hands of the gunman, neo-Nazi Stephan Balliet, had the synagogue’s security doors not prevented his entry.

Another speaker at the vigil, Susanne Breit-Kessler, chairwoman of the Bavarian Ethics Council, released two white balloons in memory of the two people murdered by Balliet after he fled the synagogue.

"We give antisemitism, racism and neo-fascism
...a political system developed in Italy, symbolized by the Roman fasces -- thin reeds, each flimsy in itself but unbreakable when bound into a bundle. Its distinguishing philosophical feature is the Corporate State. The word is nowadays thrown around by all sorts of people who have no idea what they're talking about...
a clear rejection," she declared, adding, "L’Chaim! To life in diversity."

Far-right activists stage anti-Semitic hate speech incidents in Scandinavia on Yom Kippur

[IsraelTimes] Several incidents involving anti-Semitic hate speech occurred in Scandinavia over the weekend in what the World Jewish Congress says is a coordinated campaign by neo-Nazi
...adherents of a philosophy that was seen even at the time as pure evil, which makes them either consciously and purely evil, or attention-seeking ratbags. Pick one, or both....
s on Yom Kippur.


Most of the incidents recorded on Sunday and Monday in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Iceland involve the circulation of anti-Semitic pamphlets, sometimes in the form of small posters near Jewish community buildings. There was no violence in any of the incidents.

In Norrköping, a city located about 70 miles southwest of the Swedish capital of Stockholm, a handful of men from the Nordic Resistance® Movement stood outside the local synagogue on Yom Kippur with flags of their movement, the Jewish Central Council writes in a statement. The synagogue was empty at the time.

"The Jews circumcise their babies so rabbis can suck blood from the penises of newborns and according to the Talmud they may have sex with children from the age of 3," one of the posters seen at that demonstration said.

The World Jewish Congress in a statement saying the effort was "a string of coordinated actions on Yom Kippur targeting Jews" calls on the nations to follow Finland’s example from earlier this year "and move swiftly to ban the Nordic Resistance® Movement and rid its violent mostly peaceful propaganda from our streets."

That seems a bit verbose for a sign at a demonstration. Maybe it is shorter in German.

Also, there's not really that much blood in a baby.

The network, active since 2019, mostly operated via the purchase of crypto-currency coupons whose references were given to jihadist contacts in Syria and then credited to bitcoin accounts, the anti-terror prosecutors’ office says in a statement.

This way to transfer funds marks a departure from previous methods identified by La Belle France’s anti-terror financing and money laundering services, which mostly involved cash mandates, it says.

"Constant surveillance of these networks prompted terrorist organizations to seek more opacity by using crypto-currencies such as bitcoin," the statement says.

Italy repatriates female Islamic fighter and her 4 children
[IsraelTimes] Authorities say Alice Brignoli will face trial on terror-related charges, contributed to radicalizing her children to ’embrace global cause of jihadism’.

Italian carabinieri arrested a female foreign fighter on Tuesday after returning her and her four young children to Italia from a displaced person’s camp in Kurdish-controlled territory.

The woman, Alice Brignoli, traveled in 2015 with her Moroccan-born husband, Mohammed Koraichi, and their three young children by car from their home north of Milan to Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really 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 western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
-controlled territory. Another child was born in Syria.

The children, now 11, 8, 6 and 4, were in foster care pending a decision by an Italian juvenile court. Authorities say Brignoli will face trial on terror-related charges.

Brignoli contributed to the radicalization of the children, turning them against the West and "thereby embracing the cause of global jihadism,’’ Italian Carabinieri said in a statement.

Authorities say the children have family members in Italia and that their experience with other children returning from Islamic State territory — notably an 11-year-old Albanian boy Alvin Berisha who was brought back to Italia last November — has showed that indoctrinations can be reversed.

’’There was a minimal amount of indoctrination — but no military training — enough to make them understand and agree with the choices that the parents had made. But as we have experienced with Alvin, they are small children and they can easily turn back,’’ Carabinieri Lt. Col. Andrea Leo told The News Agency that Dare Not be Named.

Brignoli came back to Italia willingly, "convinced it was the best choice after the conditions she had lived in over the last 5 years,’’ Leo said.

Authorities are hoping she will help them locate other Italian families they believe are still in former Islamic State territory.

After Islamic State lost its territorial foothold, Brignoli and her children were captured by Kurdish forces and brought to a camp for displaced people in al-Hol. Koraichi was also in the camp as a prisoner. Authorities said he died this month from an intestinal infection.

After the family’s arrival in Syria, Korachi had received training, participated in fighting and was prepared to carry out suicide kabooms, authorities said. Koraichi, who also held Italian citizenship, helped others receive authorization to travel to Islamic State territory, aiding in the recruitment and radicalization of at least two suspects who were arrested in April 2016 before they could leave Italia.

With over 40 years of treating these people, he was clear that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” and requires treatment. He also was clear people meaning well who promote sexual reassignment surgery are only propping up and promoting a mental disorder and not solving the Mental illness... Often with tragic results.

Hence why Transgenders have such a high suicide rate, which is over 40%+ overall(He->she 50+% /She->he 29.9%) according medical sources & HRC.org also.

Man pleads guilty to federal arson charge for fire set inside Justice Center in late May
[OREGONLIVE] A 32-year-old man pleaded guilty Wednesday to a federal arson charge for a fire set May 29 inside the Justice Center in downtown Portland at the start of four months of protests.

Edward Thomas Schinzing told U.S. District Judge Michael H. Simon that he was aware people were being held in jug on the upper floors of the Justice Center when he set the fire. At the time, the county jail in the building held 289 inmates.

Schinzing may face a mandatory minimum of five years in prison for the federal arson conviction when sentenced in January, the judge told him.

Schinzing was identified by Sherlocks partly by his name tattooed across his back.

Though he’s accused of setting fire to county property, he was prosecuted in federal court, accused of maliciously damaging a building and property belonging to the city of Portland and Multnomah County that receives millions in federal assistance through the U.S. Department of Justice.

Investigators say Schinzing was among several hundred people who gathered at North Portland’s Peninsula Park earlier in the evening and then walked to the Justice Center. Photo and video images captured Schinzing at the front of the crowd, crossing the Burnside Bridge, about 10:35 pm., his shirt off and his name vivid on his upper back, according to court records.

By 10:59 p.m., several people broke windows near the northwest corner of the Justice Center and climbed inside.

Three civilian employees were working in the county corrections records office and "fled for safety as the windows were broken," according to Cynthia M. Chang, a fire investigator with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

About 30 people entered the office through the broken windows, spray-painting it, damaging computer equipment and furniture and starting fires, according to Chang.

"The fuel for these fires appears to be readily available ordinary combustibles within the Correction Records Department, ignited by an introduced open flame," Chang wrote in a federal affidavit.

Schinzing’s name across his back was also clearly visible inside the damaged Justice Center office, her affidavit says.

Schinzing is suspected of having left the office at one point and returning with a shirt on but wearing the same orange cap, then spreading the fire by lighting paper and moving it into a separate cubicle, according to the affidavit.

At 11:08 p.m., the building’s fire sprinkler system activated, extinguishing the flames.

Daesh ordered militants to carry out terror attack each month in Turkey, suspect confesses
[DAILYSABAH] Asuspect who faces 15 years behind bars in The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...Qatar's satrapy in Asia Minor...
for being a member of ISIS confessed Wednesday that the terrorist group's criminal masterminds ordered their snuffies to carry out an attack each month in Turkey.The suspect, identified by his initials I.K., confessed that the terrorist criminal masterminds used to send so-called "official" letters stamped with the ISIS symbols, which informed them of their duties, and carrying out a terror attack each month was one of them.

I.K. said in the testimony that these orders were sent to Mahmut Özden, who was recently arrested for being responsible for ISIS’s Turkey operations.

"Özden was sent these letters in April and May of 2019, from directors of the organization living abroad. In line with the orders, an attack against the police and on touristic hotels was planned," he said.

The suspect added that the targeted hotel was in southern Adana province and that the terrorist group planned to take tourists hostage.

I.K. also said that the ISIS terrorist group was not able to continue with the plans after its members were arrested by Ottoman Turkish security forces.

"Even though ISIS members were supposed to never cut their beards due to internal policies, they were allowed to do so for stealth," he said.

According to the Anadolu Agency (AA) report, the suspect was willing to help Ottoman Turkish authorities capture other ISIS Death Eaters to take advantage of the effective remorse law.

The suspect also confessed that he was in communication and engaged with ISIS Death Eaters and was active within the terrorist group.

I.K. said that one of his friends from high school brainwashed him into becoming a member of ISIS, and he contacted ISIS Death Eaters in Syria over Telegram, a Russian-made messaging app abused by terrorist groups due to its privacy-oriented features.

The suspect said he started attending ISIS meetings in the summer of 2019, and the Death Eaters informed him that Özden was in charge of their Turkey operations as the group’s so-called "Turkey emir."

"I learned that high-ranking members got in touch with only Özden and nobody else. I also learned that ISIS members in Turkey got permits directly from Özden to be able to get in touch with members in Syria. Özden used to provide the Telegram link to the group members, and they used to talk through their system of encryption," he said.

I.K. also said that the meetings took place in Özden’s home.

The suspect said that Özden and three other ISIS members personally gave lectures to the new members.
