1. Alleged Islamic State “Morality Police” Female Enforcer Arrested in Germany
BERLIN (AP) – German authorities say they have arrested a 27-year-old German woman suspected of being part of the Islamic State group’s “morality police” in Iraq.
Federal prosecutors said Monday that Jennifer W. traveled to Iraq via Turkey and Syria in September 2014, where she joined the extremist group.
In a statement, prosecutors said she patrolled parks in Fallujah and Mosul, ensuring that women adhered to the dress and behavior codes imposed by IS.
W., whose surname wasn’t released for privacy reasons, was arrested by Turkish police in January 2016 after applying for a passport at the German embassy in Ankara. She was deported to Germany days later.
Prosecutors said she was arrested in southern Germany on Friday and her home in northern Germany searched. She’s accused of membership in a foreign terrorist organization.

3. London shop criticised for flying England flags responds by putting EVEN MORE flags up
A LONDON shop faced abuse for flying St George flags in support of England in the World Cup – the business responded to the complaint by covering the shopfront in even more flags.
A shop in the east London town of Ilford received a letter stating its England flags should be removed because the owners are from India.
The letter said the family had the “wrong flag” outside their shop and “should know that you don’t forget your motherland country”.
In response to the letter, the shop owners vowed to put even more St George flags up as they rallied behind England.
Sagan Mangat, Director at GMS Ltd, told the BBC: “I know I’m Indian but I’m also English. It’s got nothing to do with what football team I support.”
The shopfront is now plastered in England flags with World Cup bunting wrapping its way around the building.
4. Ohio man accused of plotting terror attack on Cleveland July 4th parade
The FBI said on Monday it has arrested an Ohio man accused of planning an al Qaeda-inspired terror attack on the July 4th parade in downtown Cleveland.
Demetrius Nathaniel Pitts, also known as Abdur Raheem Rahfeeq, was arrested Sunday morning in connection with the plot, said FBI agent Stephen Anthony. He is charged with attempted material support of a foreign terrorist organization and is expected to appear in court Monday.
Law enforcement started monitoring Mr. Pitts in 2017, then residing near Cincinnati, after he posted messages on social media promoting violence and encouraging acts of terrorism in support of Al-Qaeda. He also said he wanted to give children of military families remote-controlled toy cars tied with explosives in hopes of harming their parents, the bureau said.
“His Facebook posts were, quite frankly, disturbing,” Mr. Anthony said. “They included words to the effect that ‘we as Muslims need to start training like this every day. We need to know how to shoot guns throw hand grenades and hand-to-hand combat.'”

6. No Reward for Terrorism: Australia Ends Aid to Palestinian Authority
The Palestinian Authority will no longer received direct financial aid from Australia because donations could increase the self-governing body’s ability to financially reward terrorist violence.
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said Monday that funding to a World Bank’s trust fund was cut after she wrote to the Palestinian Authority in late May seeking assurance that Australian funding was not being handed directly to the families of deceased terrorists.
She said in a statement she’s concerned that providing further funds allows the authority to use its own budget to spend on anti-Israel terrorist activities that “Australia would never support.

8. Europe: “The Vision is an Islamic State”
A Dutch government report published in June showed that Muslims in the Netherlands are becoming more religious. The report, based on information from 2006-2015, is a study of more than 7,249 Dutch nationals with Moroccan and Turkish roots. Two thirds of the Muslims in the Netherlands are from Turkey or Morocco.
9. Christian Death Toll Rises to 200 in 4-Day Muslim “Killing Spree” in Nigeria
The death toll of last weekend’s massacre of Nigerian Christians by militant Muslim Fulani herdsmen has risen to at least 200, according to a report released Friday by Open Doors, an organization that monitors Christian persecution.
As Breitbart News reported earlier this week, heavily armed gunmen recognized as Fulani herdsmen opened fire on Christians in a number of villages in Plateau State of central Nigeria last weekend, killing scores and injuring hundreds more, as well as burning some 50 homes to the ground. Most of the victims were returning home from the funeral of the father of a local Christian minister.
Despite the evidently religious nature of the slaughter, mainstream media chose to downplay the militant Islamism behind the attacks, preferring to attribute the violence to “ethnic tensions,” a “battle for land and resources,” or even “climate change.”

Because it’s 2018 and gender equality is so crucial, it’s time that female Liberal cabinet members had the opportunity to be charged with sexual harassment too.
