[IsraelTimes] 84-year-old Claude Sinké arrested after attack in southwestern city of Bayonne that left two victims, aged 74 and 78, at death's door.
Two men in their 70s were seriously maimed Monday in a shooting in front of a mosque in Bayonne, a city in the Basque region of southwest La Belle France, by a suspected shooter identified by police as a former political candidate for the far-right National Front party.
Police told French media the suspect, who was arrested shortly after the shooting, was Claude Sinké, a candidate for the National Front party, now known as the National Rally party, in the 2015 county elections in the canton of Seignanx.
Sinké, 84, reportedly also tried to set the mosque’s door on fire, and successfully ignited a vehicle as he fled after the attack.
He was arrested by police a short time after the attack, French officials said.
"At 3:20 p.m., a man tried to burn the door of the Bayonne mosque, was surprised by two people, and opened fire on them," a police statement said.
The two victims were rushed to hospital at death's door from multiple bullet wounds. They were 74 and 78 years old, according to police.
There was no immediate information on their identities.
National Rally head Marine Le Pen slammed the "unspeakable act," calling it "absolutely contrary" to her party’s values.
"The attack on #Bayonne’s mosque is an unspeakable act that is absolutely contrary to all the values of our movement," she wrote in a Twitter post.
Police sappers raided Sinké’s home near Bayonne as officers established a security perimeter around the mosque and launched an investigation.

[DAWN] Three civilians, including a woman and her teenage son, were maimed in Azad Jammu and 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".

The casualties occurred in Gujjar Morr village of Samahni tehsil, in the southernmost Bhimber district, after Indian troops resorted to ceasefire violations at about 2:30am, using both small and big arms.
"The shelling lasted for one and a half hours without any pause and it was intense," Bhimber SP Sultan Awan said, adding that Indian troops targeted the civilian population "intentionally".
"Even now, firing with small arms continues intermittently," he told Dawn in the evening.

The rallies have gathered despite temporary curfews, threats of arrest and violence that has left nearly 240 people dead, including five protesters in Baghdad on Monday.
The military said cars and foot traffic would be barred in the capital for six hours starting at midnight.
The move sparked concern security forces want to clear out main gathering places like the capital’s Tahrir Square, occupied by demonstrators for four consecutive nights.
Security forces there have relied heavily on tear gas to keep protesters from storming the Green Zone, which hosts government offices and foreign missions.
But protesters had otherwise been allowed to set up tents in Tahrir and taken over multi-story buildings there since Thursday in a marked departure from the response to protests during the first week of this month.
They were joined in the past 24 hours by a huge contingent of students, who joined despite stern warnings by the higher education minister and the prime minister’s office that they should “stay away.”
“No school, no classes, until the regime collapses!” boycotting students shouted on Monday in Diwaniyah, 180 kilometers (120 miles) south of the capital.
Diwaniyah’s union of universities and schools announced a 10-day strike on Monday “until the regime falls,” with thousands of uniformed pupils and even professors flooding the streets.
Young protesters still gathered on Monday morning in the southern cities of Nasiriyah, Hillah and Basra.
In Kut, most government offices were shut for lack of staff.
In the province of Diyala, which had so far been calm, two members of the provincial council resigned in solidarity with the rallies.
Even in the holy city of Najaf, dozens of young clerics-to-be took to the streets.
On Monday, Iraq’s parliament voted to dissolve the provincial councils, cancel the extra privileges of top officials and summon embattled Prime Minister Adel Abdel Mahdi for questioning.
Abdel Mahdi has proposed a laundry list of reforms, including hiring drives, increased pensions and promises to root out corruption.
Iraqi President Barham Saleh has also held discussions with the UN on electoral reform and amendments to the 2005 constitution, but they have not appeased protesters.
In solidarity with demonstrators, four lawmakers resigned late on Sunday, and the largest parliamentary bloc has been holding an open-ended sit-in since Saturday night.

[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Iraqi Defense Minister Najah al-Shammari said on Tuesday a missile fell near Taji camp but caused no damage.
Al-Shammari inspected the sprawling Taji base to see the security situation there, accompanied by the army aviation commander and senior officers from the defense ministry, Iraq’s news agency said.
"Camp Taji is witnessing security stability, and there is no damage," he said in a statement, stressing the need for caution to preserve the safety of all those in the camp.
A curfew was declared in Baghdad on Monday after four people were killed and 277 maimed in the fourth day of anti-government protests. Medical and security sources said security forces fired tear gas canisters directly at protesters.
Baghdad’s top military commander declared the curfew because of the unrest, which is driven by discontent over economic hardship and deep-seated corruption.

Demonstrators vowed to remain in the square despite the curfew, which they said would provide cover for security forces to attempt to clear it.
[IsraelTimes] Army says ’wide-scale operation’ in Hebron-area refugee camp comes in response to uptick in stone-throwing and Molotov cocktailing attacks along Route 60.
Israeli troops carried out raids throughout the West Bank late Sunday and early Monday, arresting 19 Paleostinians and escorting Jewish worshipers to a flashpoint holy site.
The Paleostinian suspects were held on suspicion of participating in violent riots in recent weeks or involvement in terror-related activities, the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement.
The army said 13 Paleostinians were arrested in a "wide-scale operation" in the Arroub refugee camp, outside the southern West Bank city of Hebron, which came in response to an uptick in stone-throwing and firekabooms on Israeli vehicles traveling on the nearby Route 60.
"For the past few weeks, our patrols have been trying to halt daily attempts to attack commuters on Route 60 as part of their work securing the residents of the Etzion bloc," the statement said.
The IDF said that troops found and confiscated an M16 rifle and ammunition during searches of al-Arroub.
In a separate raid overnight Sunday-Monday in the Jordan Valley, the army said six Paleostinians were arrested for a variety of offenses, including participating in riots, rock-throwing, and involvement in terrorist activities.
Separately, IDF troops overnight escorted hundreds of Jewish worshipers to the tomb of Yehoshua bin Nun in the northern West Bank.
The army said 600 Jewish worshipers visited the holy site in the village of Kifl Haris, northwest of the Ariel settlement, without incident.
Security forces and worshipers have previously come under attack by local Paleostinians on previous overnight pilgrimages.
[IsraelTimes] Group arrested in raid by elite Duvdevan unit last month, but details censored until now.
Israeli troops arrested a group of Paleostinians suspected of throwing a rock at an IDF officer, moderately wounding him last month, the army said Monday.
"The Israel Defense Forces, Shin Bet security service and security forces in a joint operation last month arrested the members of a cell that threw rocks near the village of Azzun... and moderately injured an IDF officer while he was on leave," the military said in a statement.
Though the arrests were made last month, the matter was censored until Monday.
On September 20, the 23-year-old officer was hit when the rock flew through the windshield of his car near the settlement of Ma’aleh Shomron, west of Nablus. The officer’s father was with him in the car at the time.
The maimed man was treated by medics at the scene and taken to a hospital in Petah Tikva.
Several other rock-throwing incidents against Israeli cars were reported in the area around the same time. No injuries were reported in the other incidents
"Following a concerted intelligence effort by the IDF and Shin Bet, we carried out the arrests of the suspects in the rock throwing," an officer in the elite West Bank-based Duvdevan unit said in a statement.
"The soldiers of the Duvdevan unit are operating around the clock in order to stop and to thwart terrorist activities in the area of Judea and Samaria," he said, using the biblical term for the West Bank.
Rock-throwing attacks against Israeli vehicles are common in the West Bank, though they rarely cause casualties. Extremist settlers have also been known to attack Paleostinian drivers with rocks, and in one incident last year, an Israeli teen is accused of having thrown a rock that killed a Paleostinian woman.
[Sunstar] 33 New People's Army militants and 181 supporters have separately surrendered to government authorities in Caraga, the military reported Monday, October 28.
Army spokesman Isagani Criste said eight regular members of the Communist Terrorist Group (CTG) from North-Eastern Mindanao and five Militia ng Bayan (MBs) led by two former team leaders voluntarily surrendered to his command and Governor Dale Corvera and Representative Ma. Angelica Amante-Matba.
Criste said the group surrendered and turned over a rifle, three shotguns and two pistols on Saturday evening in the village of Mahaba, Cabadbaran City, Agusan Del Norte. With them were 95 members of the Underground Mass Organization (Ugmo) who dissociated themselves from the NPA, according to Criste. Nine NPA regulars, nine MBs and 86 UGMO members also surrendered without firearms Saturday afternoon.
Two NPA militants also surrendered on Friday in the village of Binicalan, San Luis, Agusan Del Sur.

[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Leb’s army has arrested several protesters in Sidon on Monday, Al Arabiya’s correspondent reported, as they used their bodies to block main roads in the southern city. The exact number of those arrested is unknown.
The roadblocks prompted some pushback from army forces leading to two injuries, according to the Red Thingy. They reported that the two injured were treated and released.
Lebanese demonstrators set up barricades and parked cars across key roads to protest corruption and press their demands for a radical overhaul of their country’s sectarian political system.
Meanwhile, ...back at the buffalo wallow, Standing Buffalo drew a bead on his old enemy and squeezed the trigger... Lebanese Defense Minister Elias Bousaab told OTV on Monday that the army is on the roads but does not open roadblocks by force to avoid any festivities with citizens.
"Those who incite festivities and tension should bear their responsibility," Bousaab said.
"We must address the situation of road closures quickly, making sure that the army does not clash with the citizens and we will have a meeting soon to this end," he added.
On their 12th day of protesting, demonstrators called on people to block main roads with their cars. Al Arabiya’s correspondent reported that members of the Lebanese army attempted to urge car owners to remove their cars.
According to the Hezbollah-affiliated al-Manar TV, protesters closed off the municipality buildings of Tripoli ...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn... and el-Mina, as well as the water authority in north Leb.

But since you brought it up, the enemy's center of gravity is not in leaders. It's in the grievance that they have with us: we're killing their people. Take away their grievance and you win the war.
Of course, this presumes you WANT to win the war, which the globalists in DC assuredly do not want to do. They want it to continue. It is highly profitable and provides endless excuses to meddle. All ruinously expensive, and all paid for by us, the American taxpayer.

I would also like to mention it's good you used the term "murder". Murder is an unlawful killing of a human without justification or valid excuse, especially the unlawful killing of another human with malice aforethought.
Seeing as most people here dehumanize Afghani goatherders as not human, it's nice to see an implicit acceptance of them as human, as well as a recognition that what you're supporting is a crime. Baby steps, I suppose.

Members of the islamic death cult are not human. They might be people but they aren't human. And even if we left, they'd still attack us because it's what their cult demands. I suspect the only real cure is to remove the hosts.
How many millions of Nazis were killed during the prosecution of World War II? How many civilians who may or may not have been Nazis?*
Defeating an aggressively expansionist totalitarian society is necessarily costly in terms of lives as well as materiel, because do not easily give up vicious ideas, once adopted. Only once enough are killed to demonstrate to all but the most obtuse that this idea is a Darwinian loser for a society that hold it, will it be given up. The alternative, as we’ve seen, is a long, drawn out engagement in the shadows to drain the economy of the losing side, as we did to the Soviet Union.
The population of Iraq is about 38 million. That of Syria is about 18.5 million. That of the Ummah, we are told, is about one billion. A quick, hard war should kill 2-3%, or a out 1.5 million in the region.
Or we could do the economic thing, starting by crashing the price of the oil that props up their societies. But that will take a generation, and all the meantime economic refugees will be bringing the ideas with them to Europe and beyond.
An estimated total of 70–85 million people perished, which was about 3% of the 1940 world population (est. 2.3 billion).
Deaths directly caused by the war (including military and civilians killed) are estimated at 50–56 million people, while there were an additional estimated 19 to 28 million deaths from war-related disease and famine.
Civilian deaths totaled 50-55 million. Military deaths from all causes totaled 21–25 million, including deaths in captivity of about 5 million prisoners of war.
More than half of the total number of casualties are accounted for by the dead of the Republic of China and of the Soviet Union. The government of the Russian Federation in the 1990s published an estimate of USSR losses at 26.6 million, including 8 to 9 million due to famine and disease.
The United States has given the remains of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi a burial at sea and afforded him religious rites according to Islamic custom after he was killed in a U.S. commando raid in Syria on Saturday, three officials told Reuters.
The U.S. officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, did not disclose where the ritual was performed or how long it lasted. Two officials said they believed his remains were delivered to the sea from an aircraft.
Given the gruesome nature of Baghdadi's death, it was unlikely the U.S. military followed as complete a process as it did after Navy SEALs killed al Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden in a 2011 raid into Pakistan.
In the case of bin Laden, his body was transported to the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson. It was washed before being covered in a white sheet, and religious remarks translated into Arabic were read over bin Laden's corpse.
Golly. It sounds like someone cared a great deal about giving a loving send-off to the great man, back when Barack H. Obama was running things.
