1. Suicide bomber in front of US embassy in Afghanistan angry about anti-Taliban fliers 

A suicide bomber riding a motorcycle blew himself up outside an American base in Afghanistan on Wednesday, Afghan officials said, in an attack the Taliban claimed was revenge for a US leaflet deemed highly offensive to Muslims.

US and Afghan authorities confirmed several people were wounded in the late afternoon attack at Bagram Airfield, America's largest base in the country. The Taliban claimed responsibility and said it was in retaliation for ‘their insult to the Islamic creed.

A spokeswoman for the Parwan provincial governor said "a suicide attacker on a motorbike detonated himself at the third gate of Bagram airbase".

The attacker was riding a motorcycle. Three wounded can be confirmed," said Najib Danish, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry.

From The Guardian:

“The leaflets depicted a lion chasing a dog bearing a Qur’anic passage that appears on banners used by Taliban militants. However, the passage used is also the basic Islamic statement of faith, and associating one of Islam’s most sacred texts with a dog, considered unclean in Islam, could cause offence.”

The US military apologized for the contents of the flyer.

3. No Prosecution Necessary: UK Police Force Issues over 100 Cautions for Rape, Sexual Assault Against Children

Campaigners and politicians have expressed concern over the revelation that Hampshire Police handed more than 100 cautions for rape and other serious sexual offences in the past five years.

Crimes including sex with children under the age of 18 and incest were met by the force with police cautions — formal warnings that serve as an alternative to prosecution in minor cases — according to an investigation by the Hampshire Chronicle.

Since 2014, Hampshire constabulary have cautioned four people for rape, and another six for serious sexual assaults including five counts which were carried out on children under the age of 16.

Greek asylum service employees on short-term contracts launched a two-day strike Wednesday to protest months-long delays in their salary payments.

Their union said they have not been paid for two or three months. A statement said several employees living in rented accommodation face the threat of eviction, having fallen behind in their rent payments.


6. Germany: Iraq investigating four over Islamic State links

Germany's Foreign Ministry says Iraqi prosecutors have opened an investigation into four Germans, including a teenage girl, who were detained in Iraq on suspicion of sympathizing with the Islamic State group.

German officials said in July that the four — all female, including 16-year-old Linda Wenzel — were found in Iraq as Mosul was liberated from the Islamic State group. They have been trying to determine whether the four can return to Germany, where all face an investigation.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Schaefer said Wednesday that Iraqi authorities have opened investigations against the Germans. He said he doesn't have details of what they're accused of and German authorities haven't yet seen an indictment.

Schaefer noted that Iraq is entitled under international law to insist that the four stand trial there.

10. ISIS planning attacks against Western targets to boost morale, intelligence official warns

ISIS is said to be planning a new wave of attacks against Western targets in an attempt to boost morale following crushing defeats in Syria and Iraq.

An intelligence official has warned the terror group's leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is said to be alive and plotting his next evil move.

After US-backed offensives in Mosul and Raqqa have seen Islamic State fighters all but wiped out, the expert warned a new generation of terror groups could emerge from the ashes.

In the meantime, al-Baghdadi is thought to be pulling together ideas for 'sophisticated attacks' on countries such as Britain as an EU chief warned ISIS was moving funds out of the Middle East and pumping cash into European operations.

WILLIAM ELDER commented: “If ANY terror attacks happen here Tater Tot is gonna wear it and it will bring his dissolute regime down.”

Perhaps however unlikely. Either there will be (and likely are) enough brainwashed Liberal voters to support the Rotten Potato, or he will use the opportunity to create an “admired” dictatorship!

8 out of 10 items above involve Europe.

Unless things change drastically and soon over there (Le Pen, Farage, Orban, Wilders in; Macron, Merkel, Juncker out), it’s all over for Western civilization.

How can the people we pay to make us safe see nothing alarming at all about number 10?

It makes no sense, what is the goal of the people in charge? Why hide reality from us, why deny Islamic extremists and say oh but they exist in every religion – maybe so but Christian suicide bombers / terrorists aren’t running rampant throughout the… The world, really. Why deny? Why hide and cover and downplay?? It makes no sense.
