#1  Trump was right - we could 'win' in short order, but only by killing 10 million or so, which we are not willing to do. Anything in between is pretty much pointless.

WaPo: Islamist Militants ‘Targeting Christians’ in Burkina Faso
[BREITBART] The Washington Post reported Thursday that Islamic bandidos holy warriors have been singling out Christians for execution in a remarkably honest exposé of the situation.

Post writer Danielle Paquette noted that jihadist death squads have been checking people’s necks for Christian symbols, killing anyone wearing a cross, crucifix, or some other Christian image.

As Breitbart News reported last month, Burkina Faso
...The country in west Africa that they put where Upper Volta used to be. Its capital is Oogadooga, or something like that. Its president is currently Blaise Compaoré, who took office in 1987 and will leave office feet first, one way or the other...
Bishop Laurent Birfuoré Dabiré has publicly condemned the ongoing, targeted slaughter of Christians by Islamic radicals, warning it could lead to the elimination of a Christian presence in Burkina Faso.

"If this continues without anyone intervening, the result will be the elimination of the Christian presence in this area and ‐ perhaps in the future ‐in the entire country," Bishop Dabiré told Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), a Catholic organization providing assistance to persecuted Christians around the world

Since January 2019, there have been five major jihadist attacks on Christians in the country, ACN reported in July, the last of which happened in late June.

"It happened in the neighboring Diocese of Ouahigouya," the bishop said. "The Islamists arrived and forced everyone to lie on the floor. Then they were registered, and four of them who were carrying crucifixes were killed for being Christians."

After the massacre, the jihadists told the other villagers that if they did not convert to Islam, they would also be killed.

These assassinations "followed attacks on churches in the West African nation that have left at least two dozen people dead since February," Ms. Paquette stated in her Wednesday piece.

"A spreading Islamist insurgency has transformed Burkina Faso from a peaceful country known for farming, a celebrated film festival and religious tolerance into a hotbed of extremism," she said.

She also noted that attacks by bandidos holy warriors with ties to the 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....

and al-Qaeda "have quadrupled since 2017 in Burkina Faso," and the environment of terror has driven some 70,000 people from their homes since January.

Boat with 356 Migrants Docks in Malta as 6 Countries Accept to Welcome them
[AAWSAT] La Belle France said Friday it will take 150 of the 356 migrants colonists disembarking from a humanitarian ship in the Mediterranean Sea after six Europe
...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum...
an countries agreed to accept all of them.

French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner tweeted that the 150 will be welcomed in La Belle France "in the coming days."

He added: "Together, we managed to build a European solution."

The Norwegian-flagged rescue ship Ocean Viking, with a stated passenger capacity of around 200, picked up the people in four rescue efforts off Libya from Aug. 9-12.

The migrants colonists are being disembarked in Malta from the vessel and distributed to La Belle France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Romania.

Requests for a safe port were previously denied by Malta and ignored by Italia, according to Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and SOS Mediterranee, the two charities running the ship.

MSF welcomed Malta's decision to take ashore the migrants colonists rescued. But the group also questioned why it took so long, calling for permanent European solutions.

Jay Berger, operations manager for Doctors Without Borders on board the Ocean Viking, said: "We are relieved that the long ordeal for the 356 people on board with us if finally over but was it necessary to keep them waiting for two weeks of torment?"

In a statement, he added: "This is about people who have fled desperate conditions in their homelands and have survived the horrific violence in Libya."

He said once the rescued migrants colonists have left the ship, the Ocean Viking will continue with its mission after restocking supplies and refueling.

The European Union
...the successor to the Holy Roman Empire, only without the Hapsburgs and the nifty uniforms and the dancing...
also welcomed Malta's decision and the pledges made by the European countries to welcome the migrants colonists.

EU Migration Commissioner Dmitris Avramopoulos said in a statement that "these commitments must now be honored and materialized swiftly."

The EU's border and asylum agencies will help screen people before they are relocated.

Security in Srinagar intensified following call for march to UN office, Indian soldier killed in border clash
[DAWN] Indian authorities intensified patrols on Friday in Srinagar, occupied Kashmir
...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there....

office to protest New Delhi’s tightened grip on the disputed region.

Police and paramilitary soldiers re-imposed restrictions on traffic in areas where they had been eased, putting steel barricades back up and laying razor wire across roads, bridges and intersections.

Posters bearing the name of the Joint Resistance Leadership, comprising three Kashmiri leaders fighting Indian occupation in Kashmir, appeared on Thursday across Srinagar, urging people to march to the UN office after Friday prayers.

The posters called for preachers to educate the public about the "explosive situation arising from India’s political, geographical and demographic plans" in Kashmir.

India Says Soldier Killed in Kashmir Border Clash

[AnNahar] An Indian soldier was killed by Pak forces on the Kashmir border, the military said Friday, as a tense lockdown in the region of seven million residents continued for the 19th day.

The Indian soldier was manning a post in mountainous Rajouri district Friday when he came under "unprovoked fire" from across the border, local media reports said.

A New Delhi-based Indian Army front man confirmed the incident to AFP.

The death was the fourth claimed by the Indian side since the August 5 decision to strip the region's special constitutional status.

Pakistain's military has said five people including three soldiers have died in shelling by Indian forces.

US officials Confirm Israeli Strike on Iranian Arms Depot in Iraq
[AAWSAT] US officials have confirmed Israel was responsible for the bombing of an Iranian weapons depot in Iraq last month.

The confirmation comes as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu strongly hinted his country was behind recent Arclight airstrike
s in Iraq.

"I don't give 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 a cognate form of Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either Shah or Führer or maybe both, and they hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
immunity anywhere," Netanyahu said in an interview Thursday.

Asked whether that means Israel is operating in Iraq, he said: "We act in many arenas against a country that desires to annihilate us. Of course I gave the security forces a free hand and the instruction to do what is needed to thwart these plans of Iran."

According to the News Agency that Dare Not be Named, two American officials said Israel carried out a July attack on a weapons depot - used by the Iran-backed Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) - that also killed two Iranian military commanders.

They spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to discuss the matter with news hounds.

Early Friday, the New York Times

...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize...

, citing Israeli and US officials, reported Israel bombed an Iranian weapons depot in Iraq last month.

A senior Middle Eastern intelligence official said Israel bombed a base north of Baghdad last month, while two American officials said Israel carried out multiple strikes in Iraq in recent days, the Times reported.

PMF’s deputy commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis has been unequivocal in blaming Washington for the blasts.

But Faleh al-Fayyad, the official head of the PMF, has walked back the accusations, saying investigations were ongoing.

"Preliminary investigations" found the incidents were "an external, premeditated act," he said.

"The investigations will continue until the responsible entities are accurately identified to be able to take the appropriate stances."

Friday night riots: Seventy Gazans injured in protests, 8,000 protest along border
It’s not like there’s anything else to do in Gaza on the weekend, and for many it’s the only paid work they can find.
[Jpost] 70 Gazooks were maimed during the Friday protests, including 40 live bullets, according to the Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response...
Health Ministry.

About 8,000 Paleostinians gather at the Gaza border to protest. They threw dozens of bombs, stones and grenades at the fence and IDF troops, while others tried to breach the perimeter.

The IDF also announced earlier that four suspects, apparently children, crossed the perimeter fence in the northern Gaza Strip, but returned to the Paleostinian side of the fence immediately.

These protests are part of the "right of return" marches.

The protests come after a 17-year-old girl, Rina Shenrav, was killed and her father and brother, Eitan and Dvir, severely injured in the West Bank earlier Friday afternoon. The girl was buried at the Lod cemetery at 3:30pm Friday afternoon.

Her brother and father are both still in the hospital in stable, pH balanced condition.

During the night IDF troops hit a terrorist attempting to infiltrate Israel, who threw grenades at fighters.

Israel has refused to allow Qatar
...an emirate on the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It sits on some really productive gas and oil deposits, which produces the highest per capita income in the world. They piss it all away on religion, financing the Moslem Brotherhood and several al-Qaeda affiliates. Home of nutbag holy manYusuf al-Qaradawi...
i funds into Gaza and will not permit the transfer of these funds until the government receives commitment that peace will be maintained until after the elections according to the Lebanese newspaper Al Akhbar.

Sources within Hamas, one of the armed feet of the Moslem Brüderbund millipede, said that they spoke with mediators and that an escalation should be anticipated in response.

The Qatari envoy is still reportedly in the Gaza strip.
The Times of Israel has slightly higher numbers:
Some 8,500 Palestinians took part in the border protests, one of the highest turnouts in recent months.

The Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza said 122 Palestinians were wounded in the clashes, 50 of them from Israeli fire.

The IDF photographed Palestinians holding up a banner with a swastika on it.

Also Friday, the Fire and Rescue services said an incendiary balloon launched from Gaza sparked a small brush fire in the Eshkol Regional Council. Firefighters were working to extinguish the blaze.

Bomb Kills Israeli Teenager Near Settlement
[AAWSAT] Three Israelis were maimed by a bomb in a Paleostinian attack near a settlement in the occupied West Bank on Friday, the Israeli military said.

A military front man said an Israeli man and his two children were "seriously injured" by an improvised bomb (IED) while visiting a spring near the settlement of Dolev, northwest of the Paleostinian city of Ramallah.

One of those maimed was treated at the scene and the other two were evacuated to hospital by an Israeli military helicopter, the front man said. The military said it was being treated as a terrorist attack.

Israel's Magen David Adom ambulance service said it was treating three people in "serious condition", including a 46-year-old man, a 21-year-old man, and an 18-year-old woman.

The hilly central region of the West Bank around Dolev is studded with olive groves and orchards and is popular with hikers.

North Hama under Syrian army control

Syrian Army declares full control over Khan Sheikhoun after short battle

[AlMasdar] On Thursday, the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command announced that the strategic city of Khan Sheikhoun was under the military’s control after a short battle

The Syrian Arab Army was able to fully secure Khan Sheikhoun after entering the city from all axes on Wednesday; this was followed by a thorough combing operation to ensure that Khan Sheikhoun was cleared of all explosives and holy warriors.

While Khan Sheikhoun was not declared under the Syrian Army’s control until Thursday, all of the turbans from Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, formerly al-Nusra, before that it was called something else
...al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate, from which sprang the Islamic State...
and Jaish al-Izza had already withdrawn from the southern part of the city by Wednesday.

One of the major reasons Khan Sheikhoun fell so quickly to the Syrian Army was due to the military’s capture of the strategic hilltop of Talat al-Nimr.

Talat al-Nimr is a large hilltop that overlooks both the northern sector of Khan Sheikhoun and the Hama-Idlib Highway (var. M-5 Highway)..

Syrian Regime Forces Surround Turkish Army Post
[AAWSAT] Regime forces surrounded a Ottoman Turkish military observation post on Friday after overrunning nearby villages following their capture of the key northwestern town of Khan Sheikhoun from opposition fighters, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The town of Morek, where the Ottoman Turkish troops have been cut off, lies in the north of Hama province, part of the opposition-ruled region centered on neighboring Idlib province that has been under regime assault since late April.

"Regime forces have surrounded the Ottoman Turkish observation post in Morek after capturing other towns and villages in this pocket," the Observatory said.

Opposition fighters had withdrawn from the area ahead of the army's entry into Idlib province’s Khan Sheikhoun on Wednesday.

Government forces overran the rest of the pocket, including the town of Kafr Zita without resistance.

The observation post in Morek is one of 12 the Ottoman Turkish army set up along the front line between government forces and the opposition fighters last year.

Ankara vowed on Tuesday that it would not abandon any of the posts and warned Damascus "not to play with fire".
Ankara: "Our soldiers will fight and die painfully and horribly before retreating"
Turkish soldiers: "Wait...what?"

"We will do whatever is necessary to ensure the security of our soldiers and observation posts," Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told news hounds in Ankara.
