1. Activists on Jihadi John campus mount a campaign of abuse to oust moderate Muslim staff member - amid nationwide “plot” by hard-Left students to sabotage the government's Prevent anti-terrorism scheme
Disturbing intimidatory tactics used by students to undermine anti-terrorist measures on university campuses can be revealed today.
Activists are targeting anyone connected to the Government’s Prevent programme – which seeks to tip off the security services about potential extremists.
In one example, students at Islamic State executioner Jihadi John’s former university launched a direct action campaign to make a Muslim staff member’s life “hell” for his involvement in the scheme.
Interfaith adviser Yusuf Kaplan was branded a “fake Muslim” and demonstrators said they hoped he would “die”.
Thirty protesters stormed Westminster University’s headquarters to demand his sacking.
2. Soros in Retreat: Billionaire’s University to Move from Budapest to Vienna
After a sustained campaign against the influence of left-wing billionaire George Soros by the Hungarian government, Soros’s Central European University has announced its plans to move from Budapest to Vienna.
The Central European University (CEU) has come under fire from the Hungarian government which had previously claimed it was unfair that the institution was allowed to give out both Hungarian and U.S. diplomas while not operating a campus in the USA.
Now, the university has announced that it has plans to leave Budapest and move to neighbouring Austria where a new campus will be set up, Swedish radio broadcaster Sveriges Radio reports.
3. Austria to seize refugees' mobiles and demand cash
Asylum seekers will be forced to hand over their mobile phones and up to 840 euros ($1,040) in cash to the authorities, under measures approved by the Austrian cabinet on Wednesday.
The money will be put towards the costs of their applications, while authorities will examine whether geo-location data from refugees' phones match their accounts of how they arrived in the country.
If the applicant is found to have previously entered another European country where the so-called “Dublin regulation” is in force, they could be sent back there.
Interior Minister Herbert Kickl, from the far-right Freedom Party (FPÖ) said his aim was a “restrictive and enforceable law regarding the rights of foreigners” in order to end “abuse" of the asylum system.
4. Iranian-Backed “Sleeper Cell” Militants Hibernating in U.S., Positioned for Attack
Iranian-backed militants are operating across the United States mostly unfettered, raising concerns in Congress and among regional experts that these “sleeper cell” agents are poised to launch a large-scale attack on the American homeland, according to testimony before lawmakers.
Iranian agents tied to the terror group Hezbollah have already been discovered in the United States plotting attacks, giving rise to fears that Tehran could order a strike inside America should tensions between the Trump administration and Islamic Republic reach a boiling point.
Intelligence officials and former White House officials confirmed to Congress on Tuesday that such an attack is not only plausible, but relatively easy for Iran to carry out at a time when the Trump administration is considering abandoning the landmark nuclear deal and reapplying sanctions on Tehran.
There is mounting evidence that Iran poses “a direct threat to the homeland,” according to Rep. Peter King (R., N.Y.), a member of the House Homeland Security Committee and chair of its subcommittee on counterterrorism and intelligence.
5. EU Gave Asylum to More than Half A Million Refugees in 2017: Stats Office
The number was still down by about a quarter compared with 2016, and followed a major surge of migration in 2015 which has strained the bloc's asylum system and caused political wrangling over how to deal with the influx.
Syrian citizens accounted for about a third of successful asylum cases in 2017, Eurostat said, followed by Afghans and Iraqis, Reuters reported.
On a per capita basis, Germany had the most successful asylum cases in 2017, followed by Austria and Sweden. Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Poland had the fewest successful asylum cases in 2017 on a per capita basis.
6. Canada: Muslim MP defends her association with antisemitic, jihad-linked Palestine House
“Liberal MP Iqra Khalid is pushing back against criticism over her decision to introduce a religious leader at an event” organized by the virulently antisemitic Palestine House. This story is a followup to the Jihad Watch post on Tuesday: “Canada: On Trudeau’s behalf, Muslim MP Iqra Khalid honours anti-Israel activists”.
Khalid participated in “Land Day,” which “symbolizes the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) determination to "liberate" "Palestine" by wiping Israel off the map.” After widespread concern was voiced about her involvement with jihad terrorists, Khalid lamely tried to excuse her actions by echoing Prime Minister Trudeau’s diversity mantra as her defense:
“Like any MP, I engage with a diverse array of individuals, stakeholders and groups in my community-many of them I don’t agree with.”
By now, Khalid’s deceit should be widely known. Accountability is owed to Canadians.
7. Gaza rioters attack Israel with flying firebombs
Gazans protesting along the Gaza border have begun attaching firebombs to kites to fly over the fence into Israel in a new tactic as the riots enter their fourth week.
For protests set for Friday, Gazans were hoping to send dozens of kites over the fence, including some carrying notes telling Israelis "there is no place for you in Palestine."
On the eve of Friday's protests, a group of terrorists worked to create the flying firebombs under a tree in an olive orchard hundreds of meters from the Israeli border east of Gaza City.
As AFP watched, three young men carried one kite dozens of meters towards the border before stopping to set the bottle alight.
With the flame lit, they sent it into the air and cut the thread -- watching as it floated over the border and crashed, causing a small fire.
"We use the kites to send a message," one proud teen terrorist said.
Video below shows one kite with a swastika:
8. Canadian Muslim scholar calls for reestablishing the Islamic State, rejecting nation-states
Mazin AbdulAdhim is a prominent Canadian Muslim scholar and Imam of Iraqi descent who is affiliated with the pro-Caliphate Islamic global movement of Hizb ut-Tahrir.
On April 15, 2018 London, Ontario based Mazin Abdul-Adhim posted on his YouTube channel a video entitled “10 Reasons Why the Khilafah”.
In this video Mazin Abdul-Adhim explains the importance and the benefits of reestablishing the Caliphate or the Islamic State that will unite all Muslims under rule of Islam.
9. Indonesia's Aceh canes couples for public shows of affection
Indonesia's deeply conservative Aceh province on Friday caned several unmarried couples for showing affection in public and two women for prostitution before an enthusiastic audience of hundreds.
The canings were possibly the last to be done before large crowds in Aceh after the province's governor announced earlier this month that the punishments would be moved indoors.
The caning last year of two men for gay sex before a baying mob drew international attention to Aceh's increasingly harsh implementation of Shariah law and a wave of condemnation.

10. Finland Terror Trial: Attacker at “War Against Women”, Stabbed Them to “Strengthen the Islamic Kingdom”
A rejected asylum seeker who targetted women in a stabbing attack said he was at “war against women” and committed the attack to “strengthen the Islamic kingdom”.
Moroccan Abderrahman Bouanane, 23, told the district court on Wednesday that he had justified his attack because of Western nations’ military action against Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, Helsingin Sanomat reports.
The day prior, on Tuesday, Bouanane admitted that he had specifically targetted women.
The accused, who arrived in Finland in 2016, had told police that originally his intention was to attack a soldier. But he changed his plans, believing that it was equally justified to attack civilian women.
“My target was to hit women, not men … I was in war against women,” he said.
