ISIS Message Board Encourages Times Square Attack

A post on an online message board for Islamic State sympathizers encourages would-be terrorists to attack tourist hot spots in the United States, — and Times Square is the top target.

The post is titled “To the Lone Wolves in America: How to Make a Bomb in Your Kitchen, to Create Scenes of Horror in Tourist Spots and Other Targets.” It includes bomb-making instructions and a list of ingredients, even how to pack it with shrapnel, WCBS 880’s Rich Lamb reported.

Other American tourist spots are also on the threat list, including the Las Vegas Strip.

“This is a new world, if you will, or the evolving world of terrorism, and we’re staying ahead of it,” NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said Tuesday. “We’ve been focused on it, and I believe that we are as prepared as any entity could be to deal with the threats.”

Breast Cancer Screenings In Older Women May Lead To Over-Diagnosis, Study Says

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/15/breast-cancer-screenings-older-women_n_5822600.html?ir=Fifty

While regular screenings can be useful in early detection of breast cancer, age should be considered when weighing the benefits. The United States Preventive Services Task Force currently recommends women between ages 50 and 74 go in for mammograms every other year, but a new study says that, for women over 70, there may not be much of a benefit.

A Netherlands-based study published in the British Medical Journal argues that screenings in women over 70 may actually lead to over-diagnosis and, consequently, over-treatment.

In the Netherlands, the ceiling for breast cancer screenings was upped from 69 to 75 in the late 1990s. Researchers looked at screening data for around 25,000 Dutch women ages 70 to 75 and also for over 13,000 women ages 76 to 80, for a period of 15 years starting in 1995. Their analysis showed that after the age limit for recommended screenings was increased, the number of cases of early stage breast cancer also increased. The diagnoses went from around 249 incidences per 100,000 women to nearly 363. Diagnoses for advanced stage breast cancer, however, fell slightly, from around 59 to 52 cases per 100,000 women.

They calculated that for every advanced stage diagnosis in women of this age, around 20 "extra" diagnoses for early stage breast cancer are made, which they consider an over-diagnosis.

Islamists Issues Fatwa on Gay-Friendly Mosques

http://www.dallasblog.com/201409161010722/dallas-blog/islamists-issues-fatwa-on-gay-friendly-mosques.html





A Professor of Islam at Oxford University, Taj Hargey, argues that the Prophet Mohammed forbids Muslims from eating pork, but he insists that those who pray to Allah can get a gay marriage. Nevertheless, Muslim militants disagree and have issued a fatwa to declare jihad against pro-LGBT mosques.

The Daily Telegraph of London reports that, "A Muslim academic is vowing to push ahead with the launch of his woman and gay-friendly mosque in South Africa, despite receiving death threats. Taj Hargey, director of the Muslim Educational Centre of Oxford, a group of "forward thinking" Muslims, said his Open Mosque will welcome all genders, religions and sexual orientations when it opens in Wynberg, a Cape Town suburb, on Friday."

"South Africans have become Arabised, they think they must wear the burka, must have face masks, that men must wear pyjama dresses. They think that is the only version of Islam."

Statement from the Executioner:

'I’m back Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic state, because of your insistence on continuing your bombings and … on Mosul Dam, despite our serious warnings. You Obama, have but to gain from your actions but another American citizen. So just as your missiles continue to strike out people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people.


'We take this opportunity to warn those governments that enter this evil alliance of America against the Islamic State to back off and leave our people alone'











He need to expire now.

Jihadist Scots girl incites bloody massacre on British streets

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2740268/The-private-school-jihadist-As-PM-unveils-new-terror-crackdown-Scots-girl-incites-bloody-massacre-British-streets.html

Since travelling to Syria, Mahmood has got married and has been tweeting descriptions of her humdrum life of cooking, cleaning and looking after children.

However, on Twitter she uses the name Umm Layth and her profile carries a picture of the black flag of brutal terrorist group Islamic State.
Shockingly, she has also posted jihadist propaganda, including one message in June this year saying: ‘Follow the examples of your brothers from Woolwich, Texas and Boston.

‘If you cannot make it to the battlefield, then bring the battlefield to yourself.’









Federal Judge Halts Key Part Of Texas Abortion Law

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/08/29/judge-blocks-texas-abortion-law_n_5739164.html


AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A federal judge Friday threw out new Texas abortion restrictions that would have effectively closed more than a dozen clinics statewide in a victory for opponents of tough new anti-abortion laws sweeping across the U.S.

U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel sided with clinics that sued over one of the most disputed measures of a sweeping anti-abortion bill signed by Republican Gov. Rick Perry in 2013. The ruling stops new clinic requirements that would have left seven abortion facilities in Texas come Monday, when the law was set to take effect.

Texas currently has 19 abortion providers — already down from more than 40 just two years ago, according to groups that sued the state for the second time over the law known as HB2.


"The overall effect of the provisions is to create an impermissible obstacle as applied to all women seeking a previability abortion," Yeakel wrote in his 21-page ruling.

The ruling blocks a portion of the that law would have required abortion facilities in Texas to meet hospital-level operating standards, which supporters say will protect women's health. But Yeakel concluded the intent was only to "close existing licensed abortion clinics."

British Islamic State Terrorist Threatens to 'Come Home'

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/184554#.VAKLVWK9KK0

That British IS jihadist is far from alone in the ranks of the extremist group that has conquered large portions of Iraq and Syria, declaring itself early last month as a caliphate. According to the UK's Home Office, 500 people associated with Britain have joined IS, and roughly half have returned to the UK.

Khalid Mahmood, a British MP based in Birmingham, estimates that in total at least 1,500 young British Muslims have been recruited by extremists fighting in Iraq and Syria in the last three years.

Two British IS fighters currently in Syria, Abu Bakr and Abu Anwar, were interviewed via a video feed by CNN as reported on Thursday, and revealed that the video of Foley's horrific murder is acting as a recruitment video.

Abu Anwar said he would be "more than honored" to conduct a beheading like that of Foley, adding "I hope that Allah gives me a chance to do to James Foley to another enemy. My hands are ready to commit to this blessed act."

ISIS sets sights on Denmark as EU nation wades into Iraq crisis

http://rt.com/news/183732-isis-denmark-jihad-security/


The Islamic State has declared Denmark an “enemy of Islam” and the country is on the militant organization’s radar. This is according to a Danish-Turkish jihadist, who only gave his name as OA and previously fought for the organization in Syria.

The 27 year-old, who was born and raised in Denmark says The Islamic State, who was previously known as ISIS, “has become very international and Denmark is high up on the list, believe me,” speaking to the Danish broadsheet newspaper, Politiken.

“Denmark is not my country. The Muslims’ country is the caliphate and inshallah there will soon be an attack here. Denmark should prepare itself,” the militant added as cited by The Local.

“It is an open war now. ISIS has said that all infidels should be battled. They should be eliminated and soon it will be Denmark’s turn,” OA continued.

Two Teenage Girls Arrested Over French Synagogue Suicide Bomb Plot

Two teenage girls have been arrested on suspicion of conspiring to blow up a synagogue in Lyon, French news websites have reported.

According to JSS News and Europe 1, a source from the French security agency the Central Directorate of Homeland Intelligence revealed that two Muslim girls, aged 15 and 17, were arrested in the Tarbes and Venissieux neighbourhoods a week ago, after authorities uncovered a plan to carry out a suicide bombing inside the Great Synagogue of Lyon. They were indicted on August 22nd for conspiracy to commit terrorism.

An unnamed security source also revealed that the two teenagers had never met, but communicated only via social media. “These girls were part of a network of young Islamists who were being monitored by security services,” said the unnamed security source. Security services are becoming increasingly concerned with online radicalisation, particularly following the proliferation of videos created by jihadist groups such as Islamic State.
