Smoke rises in the Syrian town of Kobani as it is seen from the Turkish border town of Suruc in Sanliurfa province, Turkey, June 25, 2015. Islamic State fighters launched simultaneous attacks against the Syrian government and Kurdish militia overnight, moving back onto the offensive after losing ground in recent days to Kurdish-led forces near the capital of their "caliphate." After recent losses to the Kurdish forces backed by U.S.-led air strikes, Islamic State sought to retake the initiative with attacks on the Kurdish-held town of Kobani at the Turkish border and government-held areas of Hasaka city in the northeast.

Radical killed by Britain in Syria was latest from Cardiff district


For the Muslim community in Reyaad Khan's neighborhood of Cardiff in Wales, this week's news he had been killed by Britain in a drone strike in Syria was just the latest in a series of shocks about radicals in their midst.

Three years ago, two brothers from the same area, Riverside, were jailed for plotting to bomb the London Stock Exchange as part of a campaign of al Qaeda-inspired attacks across the British capital in the run-up to Christmas. 

Young ISIS fighter who wanted to be UK's first Asian Prime Minister 'has been killed'

A JIHADIST who once wanted to become Britain's first Asian Prime Minister before joining ISIS has reportedly been killed in a drone strike.


Khan was the first Briton to feature in an ISIS propaganda video

Reyaad Khan is thought to have been killed after fellow ISIS fighters reported on Twitter that he had been killed in an air strike in Raqqa. 

The 21-year-old's Twitter account, which he regularly updated with propaganda, has not posted anything since July 7, while an ISIS fighter declared that Abdu Dujana - his jihadi name - had been "martyred".

RAFAH, Gaza Strip (AP) — Egyptian military bulldozers are digging through the sand along Egypt's border with the Gaza Strip in recent days, pressing ahead with what appears to be a renewed campaign to pressure Gaza's Hamas rulers and stamp out militant activity along the border.

The project, billed as an Egyptian military-operated fish farm, effectively would fill the border area with water and is designed to put an end to the last remaining cross-border underground smuggling tunnels, Egyptian military officials said. Hamas accuses Egypt of further isolating the beleaguered Palestinian territory.

JERUSALEM (AP) — Egypt's new natural gas bonanza is causing an uproar in Israel, with energy stocks plummeting and recriminations over indecisiveness and infighting that have delayed production from the country's own gas fields.

The government is currently struggling to get parliament to approve its natural gas business plan, but observers fear Israel may need to reassess everything now that Egypt, which had been cast as both an export destination and a partner, may have found its own independent solution.

The Silent Majority Should Stand Up to Welcome Those Fleeing Persecution

"The way stateless Jews from Germany are pouring in from every port of this country is becoming an outrage . . .", ran The Daily Mail in 1938.

"Marauding" migrants threaten our standard of living, proclaimed Philip Hammond in 2015.

Note the similarities. The myth of Britain as a benevolent nation which has always welcomed those fleeing persecution is simply not true. Anti-migrant hysteria plagued our shores in the 1930s as much as it does today.

Yarl's Wood is all too reminiscent of the internment camps which housed Jews, Nazi sympathisers and other aliens 70 years ago.
