Trudeau's first move doesn't bode well

Justin Trudeau's first move as prime minister is to take Canada out of the fight against the Islamic State.

We will no longer be fighting the terrorist group that burns people alive in cages, is partially responsible for the refugee crisis, and has identified Canada as a target for attacks.

While the incoming prime minister has the authority to pull Canada out of the mission right away, it's poor optics to do so for a number of reasons.

TEXAS: Muslims Outraged That Irving City Council Backs Bill That Will Ban Islamic Sharia Law Tribunals There

The intense national spotlight on Islam has shifted to Irving, where Mayor Beth Van Duyne has accused mosque leaders of creating separate laws for Muslims and the City Council voted Thursday to endorse a state bill that Muslims say targets their faith. (You can practice your so-called 'faith' in 56 countries. Pick one)

Dallas News: The dispute has made Van Duyne a hero among a growing movement that believes Muslims are plotting to take over American culture and courts. "It fuels anti-Islamic hysteria," said Zia Sheikh, imam at the Islamic Center of Irving. "Her whole point was to rile up her supporters... The problem is we become the whipping boys."

The Islamic State terror group claims it will be executing 180 Assyrian Christians who were kidnapped in mass raids in February, after negotiators failed to meet the jihadists' high asking price to free the hostages.

REPORT: SYRIAN CHRISTIANS CRY 'JESUS!' BEFORE ISIS MASS BEHEADING

The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) executed 12 Christians, including a 12-year-old boy, after they refused to abandon their faith and convert to Islam. The murders occurred on August 28 outside of Aleppo.

"In front of the team leader and relatives in the crowd, the Islamic extremists cut off the fingertips of the boy and severely beat him, telling his father they would stop the torture only if he, the father, returned to Islam," revealed Christian Aid Mission. "When the team leader refused, relatives said, the ISIS militants also tortured and beat him and the two other ministry workers. The three men and the boy then met their deaths in crucifixion."

The boy's father was a "ministry team leader who planted nine churches." One woman allegedly yelled "Jesus!" right before the terrorists beheaded her. Militants took eight aid workers, two of them females, to another village. They proceeded to rape the two females before they executed them.

Belgian jihadi ID'd by French as mastermind of Paris attacks

Once a happy-go-lucky student at one of Brussels' most prestigious high schools, Saint-Pierre d'Uccle, Abdelhamid Abaaoud morphed into Belgium's most notorious jihadi, a zealot so devoted to the cause of holy war that he recruited his 13-year-old brother to join him in Syria.

The child of Moroccan immigrants who grew up in the Belgian capital's scruffy and multiethnic Molenbeek-Saint-Jean neighbourhood, the fugitive, in his late 20s, was identified by French authorities on Monday as the presumed mastermind of the attacks last Friday in Paris that killed 129 people and injured hundreds.

What's more, one French official with direct knowledge of the investigation told The Associated Press that Abaaoud is believed to have links to earlier terror attacks that were thwarted: one against a Paris-bound high-speed train that was foiled by three young Americans in August, and the other against a church in the French capital's suburbs.

Study: ISIS defectors quit because it was too brutal, corrupt

A survey of defectors from the Islamic State group has found many quit the organization because they felt it was too brutal or corrupt, or because it made war too frequently against other Sunni Muslims.

The survey, issued Monday by a London-based research centre, relied on the public statements of 58 people known to have left IS since last year.

Peter Neumann, director of the International Center for the Study of Radicalization and Political Violence and the report's author, told Associated Press its findings shatter the image of unity and determination that IS seeks to portray.

The breaking story this morning from RT shares the dire urgency of a warning from Russian President Vladimir Putin to the entire world; the Islamic State has plans to invade the holy cities of Mecca and Jerusalem and is now a threat to all of the countries of the European Union as well as to Russia itself.

With ISIS having recently released a new video warning that they are back in America as seen 1st video below, the recent refugee trojan horse invasion of Europe and this dire warning from Putin as recent signs, we should all take these words from Putin to heart as they appear to speak more truth that what we are learning from our own leaders after we recently learned that 50 US military Intel Chiefs have revolted against Obama and a Pentagon official has warned that Obama is lying to America 'about 'us', and ISIS.'

Imminent 'French 9/11' feared as Hollande warns of more Islamist violence

French security forces are bracing for major civil unrest and fear there could be an imminent Sept. 11-style attack, according to sources close to the country's intelligence services.

Airlines have also been warned of a possible attack on a plane with an anti-tank missile, a source said.

After Friday's thwarted attempt to massacre passengers on an Amsterdam-Paris train and a series of terrorist attacks and attempted killings this year, President Francois Hollande warned the nation to prepare for more violence, which is considered inevitable as the Islamist threat grows. The army has made contingency plans to win back control of neighbourhoods where residents become hostile to security forces and where guns are easily obtainable, according to the source.

ISIL has blown up Palmyra's ancient Baalshamin Temple, Syrian activists say

ISIL militants have destroyed a temple at Syria's ancient ruins of Palmyra, activists said Sunday, realizing the worst fears archaeologists had for the 2,000-year-old Roman-era city after the extremists seized it and beheaded a local scholar.

Palmyra, one of the Middle East's most spectacular archaeological sites and a UNESCO World Heritage site, sits near the modern Syrian city of the same name. Activists said Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant militants used explosives to blow up the Baalshamin Temple on its grounds, the blast so powerful it also damaged some of the Roman columns around it.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Sunday night that the temple was blown up a month ago. Turkey-based activist Osama al-Khatib, who is originally from Palmyra, said the temple was blown up Sunday. Both said the extremists used a large amount of explosives to destroy it.
