As concern grows that the Islamic State terrorist organization is plotting to use its foreign militants to infiltrate Europe and conduct attacks, an ISIS-linked Twitter account has vowed ISIS will conquer Rome, install sharia law and throw homosexuals off the top of the "leaning tower of pizza."
Days after the Islamic State released a video threatening to "conquer Rome by Allah's permission," the Daily Mail reports that an ISIS supporter, who is strongly linked to the terror group, expanded on the threat against the Italian capital in tweets posted last Saturday.
"#We_Are_Coming_O_Rome, we will conquer & establish the justice of #shariah," the ISIS supporter posted using the Twitter handle @abu_britani2. "We will use to the leaning tower of pizza [sic] to throw off homosexual." more >>
Last week the White House took action against the various violent attacks happening all over the world in recent months by hosting a summit on Countering Violent Extremism. While it is perhaps laudable that this White House stands opposed to violent extremism this action will amount to little more than spitting into the wind. The reason for this is simple: the Obama administration approaches terrorism like it is a behavioral issue. The problem is, terrorism is not a behavioral issue. Terrorism of the kind we have been witnessing with a disturbing frequency of late is a worldview issue. And, until we can offer a better, stronger worldview we will never defeat ISIS.
By any observation the operating worldview assumptions of the President and his administration are essentially secular. While there is not one monolithic secular worldview, there are a few ideological threads common to all of them. First and foremost is the guiding assumption that the world is fundamentally material. People are basically material creatures. There is no spiritual beyond what we create for ourselves. Because of this, any problems we face as a people have primarily material causes requiring material solutions.
As a worldview, secularism's logical end is nihilism with purer strains landing there faster than more syncretistic versions. The reason for this is that, again, for secularism, matter and energy are the principle substances of the universe. Matter and energy do not have any inherent value and they cannot bequeath value to their progeny. This means that on secularism, there is not any inherent value to anything beyond what we create for ourselves, which is necessarily temporary and tenuous. That's nihilism in a nutshell. The problem here is that we are not naturally nihilistic creatures and if left alone will gravitate toward meaning even if we have to make it up for ourselves. more >>
The horror in Libya could have come from a Hieronymus Bosch painting of hell: 21 knife-wielding figures hacking the heads off 21 young men in orange jumpsuits along the shoreline, blood staining the surf red. But this was no imagined scene — it was the mass execution of Egyptian Copts who had been kidnapped by Islamic State terrorists.
The killers may have aimed to exploit sectarian hostilities — as they have in Iraq and Syria — and splinter Egyptian society. Paradoxically, however, this blatantly anti-Christian attack may finally lead to the easing of Christian-Muslim tensions in Egypt.
This week, Egypt's President Abdel Fattah Sisi responded to the beheadings with acts that unequivocally recognized the Copts as "innocent victims" and true sons of Egypt. He declared a week of national mourning, dispatched envoys to appeal to the United Nations and ordered air force bombers to "deliver swift justice in retribution." more >>
Al-Shabaab, an African-based Islamic terrorist group linked to al-Qaeda, released a video on Saturday threatening to attack shopping centers in the West, including the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota.
Based in Somalia and designated a foreign terrorist group by the U.S. government, al-Shabaab is believed to have behind the 2013 deadly attack on a Kenyan mall.
"If just a handful of mujahedeen fighters could bring Kenya to a complete standstill for nearly a week then imagine what a dedicated mujahedeen in the West could do to the American or Jewish-owned shopping centers across the world," said the anonymous terrorist on the video. more >>
Dear candidate for president of the United States:
Congratulations on your decision to pursue a career as leader of the free world. The following exam, while in no way comprehensive, is intended to assess your basic qualifications and level of occupational competency.

Most radical Islamic jihadis claim to be devout Muslims who promote the spread of strict conservative Islamic societal principles, yet it has been continuously documented through the years that many of those Muslim extremists are chronically addicted to sex and pornography.
Jihadis' obsession with porn and sex is not a new phenomenon that is only being seen today through the "brutal" and "instinctive" sex drive of the Islamic State terrorist group in Iraq and Syria. Even the late Osama Bin Laden, the world-famous leader of Al Qaeda, had a huge collection of porn that was found by Navy Seals who searched his compound when he was killed. Additionally, police raids of terrorist cells in the Europe since 9/11 have revealed "countless" images of child porn, The New York Post reported.
Islamic terrorists being addicted to porn exposes a double standard, especially for those jihadis who blame America and the West for polluting the world with sexual desire, filth and sin. more >>
