1. Woman in burka attacks store clerk in Berlin for displaying lingerie too close to Muslim scarves
A saleswoman in a fashion boutique in Berlin was viciously assaulted by a niqab-wearing woman who objected to lingerie being displayed in the same window as Islamic headscarves.
The incident occurred in the Berlin district of Neukölln, known for its high percentage of migrant residents. The niqab-wearing woman raised her objections, but after her demands to remove the lingerie were denied, she attacked the shopkeeper, Die Welt reports.
The victim, a 40-year-old woman from an Arabic immigrant background, said she saw a tattoo on the neck of her attacker and blonde hair under the niqab. Police say the woman had entered the shop once before and insulted the saleswoman in both German and Turkish before being told to leave.

2. Czech Republic: EU verdict won't change country's migrant quotas
The European Court of Justice has dismissed Slovakia and Hungary’s legal challenge to the system of mandatory migrant quotas, devised by the European Commission as a means of dealing with the migrant crisis. The Czech Republic, which is also one of the countries rejecting the forced distribution of migrants, says the ruling will make no difference to its stand. […]
The Czech Republic, which has taken in only around 12 refugees of the close to 2,700 allotted to it under the EC mechanism, recently argued that Italy and Greece from which it was to take in migrants had not enabled it to carry out the detailed background investigation checks on the refugees in question. According to the Czech Interior Ministry the Italian and Greek authorities permitted only the most basic questions to be posed to refugees earmarked for relocation and eventually ceased communicating altogether.
The conditions under which the system was to operate are simply not being met and the present debate in Europe on this matter shows that our reservations are justified,” Minister Zaorálek said.
Meanwhile, Czech President Miloš Zeman, known for his fiery anti-migrant rhetoric, said at a public gathering that the country should not give way to EU pressure.
The Czech Republic is also the only state that has refused to lift the ban on nuclear materials to Iran.

4. US warplanes pick off ISIS fighters drawn to stranded convoy ‘like moths to the flame’
An attempt by Islamic State to evacuate hundreds of fighters from western Syria to the Iraqi border has instead left them sitting ducks for aerial attacks by the U.S.-led coalition on the convoy.
“We were able to exploit it and take advantage,” Army Col. Ryan S. Dillon, a coalition spokesman, said of the ISIS maneuver Thursday morning as 11 buses full of ISIS fighters and civilians remained stranded in the Syrian desert.
U.S. warplanes continue to pick off militants who stray too far from the protection of the convoy’s women and children, officials said. Strikes have also destroyed militant vehicles coming to the area from ISIS-held territory.
5. ANTIFA threatens to smash venues associated with anti-M103 conference
Conference organizers believe that the House of Commons heritage committee, which was mandated by M-103 to address “systemic racism” and the issue of Islamophobia, will propose changes to Canadian law that will criminalize criticism of Islam and pave the way for greater application of Shariah law in Canada. C3RF is worried that Canada could follow the lead of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which defines “Islamophobia” as “an excessive fear against Islam and anything associable with Islam.” On its website, C3RF says that this definition is worrisome because “anything associable with Islam” would include Shariah slander laws, which stand in opposition to Canadian values.”

The woman, only known as Hajer, also reveals that the British female jihadists would be the most sadistic torturers, and would use a tool known as a 'biter', reportedly able to inflict pain 'worse than childbirth'.
The 25-year-old was one of the first recruits to join the all-female Al-Khansaa brigade in 2014, a group of women jihadists that has been compared to Hitler's Gestapo.”
