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 >>
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 >>
Pastor and Counter Culture author David Platt said society cannot effectively fight sex trafficking until it examines its own pornography use.
The Alabama megachurch pastor and Southern Baptist Convention's International Mission Board president writes in Counter Culture that many college students, if asked, would express a desire to end sexual slavery. Yet studies such as a 2008 Barna Research report shows that adults under the age of 25 are twice as likely than Baby Boomers to watch pornography.
"Every time someone views pornography online or on a mobile phone in a living room or office or wherever… they're contributing to a cycle of sex slavery from the privacy of [their] own computer or [their] own smart phone," Platt asserts. more >>

The 13-year-old at the center of the "Slender Man" stabbing is back in school and enjoying her life, thanks to support and prayers from family and friends.
Payton Leutner is enjoying spending time with her family and friends, including celebrating her 13th birthday, after nearly being murdered by two former friends in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, suburb of Waukesha on May 31, 2014.
Leutner, then 12, and Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier, were believed to have been having a slumber party when Geyser and Weier led Leutner out into the woods, stabbed her repeatedly 19 times, then left her for dead. Leutner somehow managed to crawl out of the woods just enough for a passing cyclist to see her and get help, thereby preventing her death. more >>
A television watchdog group is calling for the cancellation of a TV show that features couples (both gay and straight) who have sex in an enclosed box and then walk out in front of a live studio audience to discuss their sexual likes, dislikes and relationship issues with a three-person panel.
The Parents Television Council has created a petition calling for the WE cable network to cancel the "Sex Box" TV show, which is scheduled to debut on Friday, Feb. 27.
"This new reality show far exceeds the limits of decency when its participants enter a soundproof box on stage, have sex, and then discuss their 'intimacy issues' with a panel of so-called experts," reads the petition. more >>
