Dallas megachurch Pastor Robert Jeffress says there are as many as 75 million radical Muslims in the world today, and claims that number is a conservative estimate.
Jeffress, who is the outspoken senior pastor at the 12,000-member First Baptist Church, told Lou Dobbs during an interview on Fox Business Wednesday that 5 percent or more of the Earth's 1.5 billion Muslims are embracing radical Islam.
After criticizing President Barack Obama over his refusal to identify radical Islam as being the "common denominator" behind recent terror attacks in Pakistan, Brussels, Paris and San Bernardino, Jeffress praised Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump for his assertion in early March that "Islam hates us." more >>
One of the two girls carrying explosives on an apparent suicide bombing mission in Cameroon said after her arrest that she was one of the 276 schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram from Chibok in neighboring Nigeria in 2014. Meanwhile, the terror group's purported leader, Abubakar Shekau, is reported to be contemplating stepping down.
The government of Nigeria is sending some parents from the Chibok community to Cameroon to verify the claim of the girl, who was arrested along with her associate by local self-defence forces in Limani village in northern Cameroon before she could blow herself up, according to The Guardian.
Of the 270 schoolgirls kidnaped by Boko Haram in April 2014, 50 managed to escape and 219 remain missing. more >>

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is featured in a new video purportedly released by the Islamic State or its supporters that takes responsibility for this week's terror attacks in Brussels and calls on militants to carry out jihad against the West.
The nine-minute video titled "The Exile of Islam and Brussels Attacks," tries to gloat in the fact that IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL) has been successful in carrying out deadly attacks in the heart of prominent European cities. After militants launched an assault in France last November, Tuesday's attack in Belgium only continues to drive up fears in the West that more terror attacks are probable in the future.
The video begins by showing a map of Europe burning and then plays audio of a newscaster saying, "Just four months after the last one, another series of attacks on a European capital." more >>
