Following the shooting in San Bernadino, California, last week, 2015 has become the deadliest year for jihad-inspired terror attacks on American soil since 2001, according to a Washington-based think tank.
The New America Foundation, a non-partisan think tank that focuses on a wide range of public policy issues, has compiled a set of data outlining various massacres that have occurred inside the United States since the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2011, that killed nearly 3,000 people.
The list, which was released after last Wednesday's jihad-inspired mass shooting in San Bernardino, finds that 19 people have been killed by radical Islamic extremists in the U.S. this year alone, making 2015 the most violent year for Islamic extremism in America since 2001. more >>
As the Islamic State terrorist organization continues to come up with barbaric ways to execute its prisoners, the militant group has reportedly ripped a journalist's body in half and executed an Iraqi woman by biting her hand off.
According to the Iranian-based AhlulBayt News Agency, IS militants in Deir ez-Zor, Syria, executed a journalist whom they accused of acting as a spy for the Syrian army and giving away the locations of IS fighters.
While the militant organization has become well adept at beheading or fatally shooting its prisoners in the back of the head for their executions, IS chose to make an example of the unnamed journalist by forcing him to endure what can be described as one of the group's most brutal methods of execution. more >>

A Georgia church headed by former Southern Baptist Convention President Bryant Wright is lending a hand to help Syrian refugees resettle in the United States.
Johnson Ferry Baptist Church, which is located in Marietta, is helping to resettle a Syrian family in the state that has fled the ongoing conflict in the Middle Eastern nation.
Christian ministries and aid groups helping Syrian refugees have said they are facing increased difficulties following the Paris terror attacks in November, with refugees being judged for crimes they didn't commit.
"One can sense that the refugees themselves are feeling judged and looked over as though they may be affiliated with ISIS and are dangerous. This makes them feel ashamed, when really they want to be connected but can't make that clear to the church members," a ministry director in Turkey, whose name wasn't shared, recently told Christian Aid Mission.
The director added the refugees are facing such skepticism even though none of the Paris attackers have so far been identified as Syrian citizens. more >>
