1. Linda Sarsour raises money to repair vandalized Jewish cemetery — but fails to hand over the money
Linda Sarsour is the dedicated Muslim who led the woman’s march against Donald Trump, and more recently asked Muslims to wage jihad on President Trump and his administration.
“A Jewish cemetery in Colorado that has fallen into severe disrepair has yet to receive a check for some $100,000 from a group associated with Palestinian-American BDS activist Linda Sarsour, despite being promised the money several months ago, The Algemeiner learned on Tuesday.
Neil Price of the Golden Hill Cemetery in Lakewood, CO said he had left three unreturned voicemails for Tarek El-Messidi, the founder of non-profit Islamic education organization Celebrate Mercy, who led the high-profile effort by the Muslim community in February and March to raise money for vandalized Jewish cemeteries in the US. El-Messidi’s partner in the effort was Sarsour.”
2. Terrifying look inside life for children in Islamic State
FOR children half a world away, the nightmares don’t stop.
Five-year-old Shadi and his older sister and brother are among thousands of children who have seen more terrors than most of us combined in their short lifetime; children sold as sexual slaves, suicide bombings, blood, guts and gore, forced torture and mutilation.
But most of all, they’ve stared death in the eye.
“Deflowered (sex) slave for sale, age 13,” one ad in an online jihadi marketplace reads. “Body: slim, tall. Price: $9,000.”
For the children of Islamic State-controlled territories in Iraq and Syria, this is their reality. Their nightmare. Every. Single. Day.
“One day Shadi held a knife to our little sister’s throat,” Shadi’s older sister, Hadya, explains in a confronting episode of Dateline, which airs tonight.
“He would have cut her ear off if my mother hadn’t stopped him. He said, “I’ll cut her throat, she’s mine”

4. SHOCK REPORT: No checks at small ports allow illegal immigrants into Britain
The Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration David Bolt has exposed the lack of checks in an explosive report published today.
It revealed that officials failed to carry out checks at 27 of the 62 small ports along the east coast between February 2015 and June last year.
The report said that the lack of checks meant that there is no "visible deterrent" for people trying to smuggle illegal immigrants and illicit goods into the UK.

It is worth noting that truck drivers are treated as criminals if illegal migrants are caught hiding in the vehicles anywhere, sometimes even doing jail time. But interestingly, not the migrants.
6. Alleged teen terrorist in state care mentored by Salafist
A boy who had planned an attack on a Christmas market was looked after by an Islamist extremist for weeks. The blunder by a local youth care agency is likely to severely impact his de-radicalization.
In December 2016, the then-12-year-old German-Iraqi is said to have filled jars with fireworks powder, taped nails to them and placed them close to the town hall and on the Christmas market in the southern-German city of Ludwigshafen. Fortunately, the home-made explosives didn't detonate. The boy was caught and put into a closed facility at an undisclosed location, where he is receiving intensive psychological treatment.
On Tuesday, journalists with the TV magazine "Report Mainz" reported that one of the people looking after the boy is believed to be an adherent of the Salafist ideology. Salafism is an ultra-conservative and often violent branch of Islam.
In other words: One of the psychologists in charge of de-radicalizing the young aggressor is an extremist himself.”
7. Nice attack: Prosecutor calls for ban on Paris Match photos
The Paris prosecutor has called for Paris Match magazine to be pulled from newsstands after it published CCTV images of the 14 July attack in Nice.
A lorry killed 86 people when it drove into crowds celebrating Bastille Day.
The publication of the images has angered a victims' group, which accused the magazine of morbid sensationalism.
The magazine was still on sale on Thursday afternoon as both sides appeared in court to make their arguments before a judge.
The prosecutor asked the court to "order the (magazine's) withdrawal from sale" as well as a "ban on publication in all formats, particularly online".
A decision is expected later in the evening.
The mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi, earlier criticised Paris Match for publishing the images on the eve of the first anniversary of the attack.”

10: Federal Court voids Canadian citizenship revocation for 312 people
The Federal Court has nullified government attempts to strip Canadian citizenship from more than 300 people after an earlier judgment struck down key provisions of the Citizenship Act introduced by the former Conservative government under Stephen Harper.
The earlier ruling, in May, declared those provisions inoperative because they were an expedited process that deprived individuals of the right to an oral hearing and did not take into account humanitarian and compassionate considerations.
As a result, in a decision on Monday, Justice Russel Zinn voided the citizenship revocation of 312 individuals who had turned to the court after they were targeted in a sweep against people who had obtained their Canadian nationality through fraud.
