2. Cleric Warns US of Defeat from Iran
Addressing worshippers in Tehran on Friday, Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Movahedi Kermani took a swipe at the US government for its efforts to receive support from Europe, Saudi Arabia and its “servant Israel” for damaging Islam and Muslims.
However, he underlined, Iran has no concern thanks to its Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

His comments came after Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said the US government is aware of the crushing response it will have to face in case of taking military action against Iran, reiterating that the time of hit and run is over.

4. EU chief: Don't judge Karl Marx for his followers' crimes
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker says German philosopher Karl Marx shouldn't be judged for the crimes that his followers committed decades after his death.
Juncker spoke Friday at an event commemorating the 200th anniversary of Marx's birth in the western German city of Trier.
Alluding to the crimes committed by social revolutionaries in Russia, China and elsewhere, Juncker said “Marx isn't responsible for all the atrocity his alleged heirs have to answer for.”
Marx laid the philosophical foundations for Communism, an ideology that aims for shared ownership of the means of production and the absence of social classes.

6. Belgian Islamic Party Founder Fired from Bus Driving Day-Job For “Islamic State” Comments
One of the founders of the Belgian Islamist party Partij Islam has been fired by his regular employer after he said he wanted Belgium to become an Islamic state.
Anderlecht municipal councillor Redouane Ahrouch, who also serves as the treasurer for the Partij Islam, was fired by the Brussels Intercommunal Transport Company (STIB) earlier this week after the Islamist politician made “remarks in contradiction with the values of the company”, Belgian radio broadcaster RTL reports.
STIB spokeswoman Françoise Ledune said one of the reasons for his dismissal was that Ahrouch identified himself as working as a bus driver which the company felt could lead to confusion that it endorsed his statements.
7. Shopkeeper Rana Aslam Receives Light One-year Sentence for Grooming 12-Year-Old in Scotland
Dundee shopkeeper Rana Irfan Aslam has been given a short one-year sentence for grooming a 12-year-old for sex.
Aslam, 51, of Wallacetown Court, was branded a “dirty, paedophile scumbag” by his victim, now in her thirties, Dundee’s Evening Telegraph reports.
“He was in his 30s and I was 12. He worked at a shop in Kirkton. I would go in with my pocket money to buy sweets with my friend. He said we were “really pretty”,’ she said.
“He enticed us into his car and bought us a McDonald’s — from there the abuse started. It began with him kissing and groping me. He would buy me CDs, perfume and even a mobile phone, which I had to hide from my parents.”
A report by think tank Quilliam has found that more than eight out of ten men convicted of grooming gang offences have an 'Asian' background, while victims are "almost exclusively white girls". https://t.co/9llGk0zVRS— Jack Montgomery ن (@JackBMontgomery) December 10, 2017

10. “Kill them all”: ISIS thugs call on fanatics to launch attacks at the World Cup in chilling new propaganda
ISIS thugs have called on their supporters to launch attacks at the World Cup in chilling new online propaganda.
The terror group's latest poster, showing a knife set on a red back ground in front of a football stadium in Russia, comes with a French caption translated as “Kill them all”.
It is the latest in a series of ISIS threats made against football's showpiece tournament, which kicks off on June 14 in Moscow.
The poster was released by a French ISIS-linked group, according to SITE Intelligence, which monitors terror activity.
In April, ISIS warned Russian President Vladimir Putin he will “pay the price for killing Muslims”. The poster showed a jihadist emerging from an explosion and holding an AK-47 aloft, with a packed football arena in the background.
