2. Netherlands revokes citizenship of four alleged jihadis
The Netherlands' justice minister has revoked the Dutch citizenship of four people the government alleges traveled to a foreign conflict zone to join a terrorist organization.
The action announced Wednesday marks the first time Justice Minister Stef Blok has used new powers to revoke the citizenship of alleged jihadis. The identities of the people affected by the decision were not released.
Speaking to reporters at the Dutch Parliament, Blok said the four were believed to have traveled to Syria. He said they all were dual Dutch-Moroccan nationals.
They also have been declared "undesirable aliens," which means they cannot legally return to the Netherlands or to any other country in the European Union's Schengen passport-free travel zone.
3. Other side of the story regarding Bangladeshi Muslims in Myanmar?
This “fake news” is, according to Aung San Suu Kyi, “simply the tip of a huge iceberg of misinformation calculated to create a lot of problems between different communities and with the aim of promoting the interest of the terrorists.”
Let’s refresh our memories of what has been going on in Myanmar this last month. All the news reports coming from Myanmar (Burma) tell the same story: tens of thousands of the Rohingya, a Muslim minority, have been fleeing into Bangladesh, to avoid the sudden upsurge in violence from both Burmese military and civilians. The Rohingya are presented as the innocent and long-suffering victims of “racist” Burmese Buddhists (Islam being, for propaganda purposes, a “race”). Only a handful of the reports mention, and only briefly, as if in passing, that the current violence began when, in mid-August, Rohingya fighters attacked 30 different police stations and an army base, as part of their campaign to stake their claim to Rakhine State, in western Myanmar, and showing themselves able “to strike terror in the hearts” of the Infidels to get it. The attacks left more than 70 dead, Muslims and Buddhists.

4. ANTIFA attack citizens protesting new migrant centre in Rome:
Clashes have broken out over the presence of a migrant center in Rome's outskirts in the latest sign of increasing tensions over the influx of migrants in Italian cities.
The fascist Casapound movement was attending a municipal council meeting Wednesday over neighborhood tensions caused by the presence of about 80 African migrants at a shelter. Casapound wants to close the center.
Leftist activists, some carrying signs reading "Enough Racism," besieged the building where the meeting was supposed to have taken place, forcing it to be canceled.

5. Algerian Muslim screaming “Allahu Akbar” attacks seven, including police in Toulouse, France
The man, believed to be in his early 40s, shouted 'Allahu Akbar' before launching an attack on members of the public on Avenue Frederic-Estebe.
Officers were quickly alerted to the situation by passersby and it took three officers to bring the situation under control, according to French news site La Depeche.
One man told local media: "We were chatting and he jumped on us. He first caught my son and then beat my daughter. We ran."
The attacker was not carrying any weapons but two victims were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

7. UN slams Hungary’s border wall
The United Nations has strongly criticised Hungary for showing a “very clear intention” to halt illegal immigration, blasting the nation’s border wall for giving an unwelcoming impression to would-be asylum seekers.
“My fundamental impression is that there is a very clear intention here to limit severely the number of people that are allowed to come to Hungary to seek protection,” UN refugee chief Filippo Grandi said Tuesday, whilst visiting a transit zone for asylum seekers at the Hungary-Serbia border.
‘When I was standing at the border fence today, I felt the entire system is designed to keep people, many of whom are fleeing war and persecution, out of the country,’ he added.”
(No word yet on the UN position on countries that build walls to keep people in, such as Cuba and North Korea.)

The document also says "the Prime Minister did not attend the entirety of the trip" but offers no further explanation. […]
Trudeau has defended the trip, arguing that the Aga Khan – leader of the world's Ismaili Muslims – is a longtime family friend.
9. Australian anti-Marxists fined $1400 for mock beheading video
Three far-right nationalists who staged a mock beheading to protest against the building of a mosque in Bendigo in central Victoria have been found guilty of inciting serious contempt of Muslims.
Blair Cottrell, Christopher Shortis and Neil Erikson have each been fined $2,000 after they filmed the beheading of a mannequin with a toy sword outside the Bendigo council offices in 2015.
The so-called 'Bendigo Three' argued that their video, which was released on the United Patriot's Front Facebook page, was an act of free speech that focused on a specific tenet of Islam.
