3. Indonesian militants planned “dirty bomb” attack
The plot comes as Indonesia grapples with an influx of militants deported from other countries and the fallout from the Islamic State-led siege in the southern Philippines city of Marawi that regional leaders and analysts worry has energized militants across Southeast Asia
The three counter-terrorism sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the militants had hoped to transform low-grade radioactive Thorium 232 (Th-232) into deadly Uranium 233 (U-233).
The highly radioactive uranium would be combined with the powerful home-made explosive triacetone triperoxide (TATP) to create a “nuclear bomb”, according to an instruction manual used by the militants and reviewed by Reuters. […]
Indonesia has suffered a series of mostly small attacks by extremists over the past 18 months, although police have disrupted many more.
Indonesian terrorism analyst Rakyan Adibrata fears militants have been inspired by the events in Marawi, where IS fighters continue to occupy part of the city despite a three-month offensive by Philippines force to re-take it.
“They don’t have the ability to occupy a city like has happened in Marawi, but they want to do something big that pleases their bosses in Islamic State,” said Adibrata.

5. Most anti-Semitic hate crimes conducted by leftists, Muslims: Study
A major new study has found that left-wingers and Muslims are responsible for the overwhelming majority of anti-Semitic hate crime in several different European countries.
The study, Antisemitic Violence in Europe, 2005-2015, was conducted by Johannes Due Enstad of the Oslo-based Center for Studies of the Holocaust and the University of Oslo and was joint published by both institutions.
When asked the question, “Thinking about the incident where somebody attacked or threatened you in a way that frightened you because you are Jewish – who did this to you?”, respondents overwhelmingly said that the perpetrators were Muslim or left-wingers.
In France, 53% of the cases were perpetrated by Muslims, 18% by left-wingers and just 4% by right-wingers.
In Sweden, respondents said 51% of the hate crimes were perpetrated by Muslims, 25% by left-wingers and 5% by right-wingers.

7. A patriot group from Malta went to sea to stop a migrants-into-Europe racket
When they returned, they were not allowed to disembark and were denied water by the far left Maltese government. However, another group of patriots sailed out to bring them supplies.
Text from video:
“The C-Star returned from her mission to disembark the crew in Malta. This island has become the HQ of the NGOs, funnelling thousands of illegals to Europe. But for us they suddenly closed their ports, denying Europeans repatriation. On top of that, they denied us any drinking water. But brave Maltese patriots broke this crazy embargo of their prime minister!”
