A look into the personal journal carried by New York City and New Jersey bombing suspect, Ahmad Khan Rahami, at the time of his capture shows the true jihadi intentions behind his terrorist acts.
The 28-year-old Rahami, who was captured after a shootout with police on Monday in New Jersey, has been charged by federal prosecutors in both New Jersey and New York with planting a series of bombs across the two states, including a pressure cooker bomb that exploded on West 23rd Street in Manhattan on Saturday and injured 31 people.
An affidavit filed in Manhattan federal court on Tuesday provides details on the radical Islamic thoughts floating through the head of Rahami, who was born in Afghanistan in 1988 and first came to the United States in 1995 before he became a naturalized citizen in 2011. more >>
In the aftermath of this past weekend's Islamic terrorist attacks, White House press secretary Josh Earnest commented, "We are in ... a narrative battle. ... ISIL wants ... to project that they are an organization that is representing Islam in a fight and a war against the West, and a war against the United States. That is a bankrupt, false narrative. It's a mythology, and we have made progress in debunking that mythology. ... We can't play into this narrative that somehow the United States or the West is fighting against the Muslim religion."
In response, conservative journalist Ben Shapiro wrote, "The people in New York weren't hit by flying pieces of narrative."
Indeed, Islamic terrorism is not a narrative, and the victims of Islamic terrorism worldwide, now numbering in the millions, have not been beheaded or tortured or raped or blown to pieces or burned alive or imprisoned or exiled by "flying pieces of narrative." more >>

A survey concerning France's growing Muslim population has found that as many as one in four French Muslims support Islamic laws that would require women to wear face veils.
MailOnline reported that the study from Institut Montaigne of 1,029 people found that French Muslims hold diverse views about law and governance. Close to half, or 46 percent of those who responded to the poll, said they were "completely secular," and demonstrated their religious faith by only eating halal meat.
Another 25 percent who said they were devout and "proudly Muslim" supported a greater role for religion in the work place, but opposed practices such as polygamy and wearing the burqa. more >>
The Islamic State terrorist organization has reportedly abducted a 70-year-old prayer leader because he said he had dream about the barbaric militant group's downfall in its largest stronghold in Iraq, the city of Mosul.
According to local sources who spoke with the Iranian-based AhlulBayt News Agency, militants captured the elderly man, who was a prayer leader at a mosque in Mosul, after he claimed that he was given a prophecy in a dream about the demise of IS' control of the city.
As IS continues to suffer from declining oil revenues and U.S. President Obama and Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi vowed on Monday to launch an offensive to recapture Iraq's second largest city within months, the militant group's leaders have barred Mosul residents talking about military successes against IS. more >>
