White Man Kills Five Black Men in Racist Murder Spree

Yeah I know but I'll get more traffic from TPM and Salon if I write it this way.

The 22-year-old man suspected of shooting five middle-aged white men since last year — including four on south Kansas City walking trails — threatened in 2014 to shoot up a school and “kill all white people,” according to court records.

Fredrick Demond Scott, who was charged Tuesday in two killings and named as a suspect in three more, made those statements in January 2014 at Center Alternative School, as documented in a municipal citation for harassment.

Scott, who is black, has been charged with murder in the deaths of Steven Gibbons, 57, and John Palmer, 54. On Tuesday, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced those charges, also naming Scott as a suspect in the killings of David Lenox, 67; Timothy S. Rice, 57, of Excelsior Springs; and Mike Darby, 61, co-owner of Coach’s Bar & Grill at 103rd Street and Wornall Road.

Its just a small deception, for their own good ya know. Like the CNN rescue thingy, that dude was cold so the let him put on pants, I mean its a recreation of events, like Police Body cam recreations.... Its almost true.

And The Week Ends With the Arrest of Sheikh Abdullah El Faisal

This joker was the Imam for Revolution Muslim, the Islamic Stinker's Society of NY. He's been preaching Jihad unfettered from Jamaica for over a decade. Now he's coming back to America!

The Gleaner:

Muslim Sheikh Abdullah el Faisal has been arrested by members of the Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime Branch of the Jamaica Constabulary Force on an extradition warrant.

The Ministry of National Security says el Faisal was arrested in Kingston and taken to his home in St Catherine where a search warrant was executed.

It also said he will be taken to court for a hearing at a later date.

The ministry has promised that further information will be made available as soon as possible.

It appears he may be headed to a Kenyan Prison. We'll update when we know for sure who's warrant it was.

Update: He's coming to America!

Soliciting or Providing Support for an Act of Terrorism in the First Degree as a Crime of Terrorism, a class B violent felony, 1 count
Soliciting or Providing Support for an Act of Terrorism in the First Degree, a class C violent felony, 1 count
Attempted Soliciting or Providing Support for an Act of Terrorism in the First Degree as a Crime of Terrorism, a class C violent felony, 1 count
Conspiracy in the Fourth Degree as a Crime of Terrorism, a class D violent felony, 1 count
Attempted Soliciting or Providing Support for an Act of Terrorism in the Frist Degree, a class D violent felony, 1 count
Rest of Presser below the fold.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., and New York City Police Commissioner James O’Neill today announced the indictment of TREVOR WILLIAM FORREST, a/k/a “SHAIKH ABDULLAH FAISAL,” a/k/a “SHAIKH FAISAL,” 53, for using his public profile and personal network to recruit and provide support to those seeking to commit acts of violence and terrorism against others. The defendant is charged in a New York State Supreme Court indictment with Soliciting or Providing Support for an Act of Terrorism in the First Degree as a Crime of Terrorism and other charges.[1]

The indictment follows a yearlong investigation by the NYPD Intelligence Bureau and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office’s Counter Terrorism Program, which was created in June 2015 to identify and pursue investigative leads related to homegrown terror plots, extremist activities, and terror-financing.

“Shaikh Faisal has dedicated his life to terror recruitment,” said District Attorney Vance. “Through his lectures, website, and videos, he incites untold numbers of people around the world to take up the cause of jihad. As is alleged in this case, he provided material support to the Islamic State by facilitating the passage of a self-described ISIS sympathizer from New York to Syria. A charismatic leader, the defendant’s rhetoric has been cited by several convicted or suspected terrorists in New York, London, and beyond. As charged in today’s indictment, the defendant also served as the fulcrum of a recruitment effort that encouraged individuals to carry out acts of terrorism in the name of the Islamic State and connected them with other radical supporters who were willing—or already in the process—of doing the same in countries around the world.”

Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill said: “Shaikh Faisal has used his influence and direction to groom and inspire terrorists who have bombed trains, attempted to blow up airliners, and attack Americans here and abroad. His arrest for his efforts to recruit people for ISIS, a terrorist group that has plotted attacks against New York City, should bring an abrupt end to his global outreach in support of terror groups such as al-Qaida and ISIS.”

According to the indictment and documents filed in court, beginning in December 2016, FAISAL and an undercover NYPD officer based in New York began communicating remotely while the defendant was living in St. James, Jamaica.

Since 2014, FAISAL, who was previously convicted in the U.K. of crimes related to inciting murder and using racially charged, hateful rhetoric in furtherance of terrorist ideologies, has publicly supported a terrorist organization known as the Islamic State, a/k/a “ISIS” or “ISIL”, and called for the establishment of an Islamic caliphate through violent acts encouraged by the defendant’s online lectures and militant propaganda.

During their conversations, which occurred over email, text messages, and video chats, FAISAL encouraged the undercover officer to view his lectures online and began sending this person propagandist reports from an official Islamic State news outlet. After their initial exchanges, the defendant offered to help the undercover officer leave the U.S. and travel to the Middle East to support foreign fighters abroad. FAISAL also offered to connect this individual with contacts, cautioning the undercover officer to be circumspect about explicit references to the plan, employ coded language, and use an encrypted chat tool while communicating with FAISAL and his associates.

In a subsequent conversation, the undercover officer informed the defendant that they were certified to perform first aid and CPR, and reiterated the undercover officer’s desire to go overseas to provide aid to foreign fighters in the Middle East. FAISAL then suggested that the undercover officer enter into a marriage with someone in the Islamic State to enable travel abroad, and offered to broker the arrangement. Members of the NYPD Intelligence Bureau, along with the undercover officer, then traveled to the Middle East and, upon their arrival, the defendant provided the undercover officer with contact information for an individual based in Raqqa, Syria. In early 2017, that individual contacted the undercover officer and began collecting information about this person’s location and whereabouts in order to facilitate entry into the Islamic State.

Prior Anti-Terror Prosecutions

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has successfully prosecuted terrorists under New York State’s anti-terror laws, which were enacted following the attacks on September 11, 2001.

In March 2014, Jose Pimentel was sentenced to 16 years in state prison for constructing improvised explosive devices to detonate in Manhattan. Pimentel, who viewed FAISAL’s videos, participated in the defendant’s online chat forum, and cited the defendant as one of his primary inspirations, was convicted of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the First Degree as a Crime of Terrorism.

In another case, in March 2013, Ahmed Ferhani was sentenced to 10 years in state prison after the defendant pleaded guilty to terror-related charges, including Attempted Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the First Degree as a Crime of Terrorism, Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Second Degree as a Crime of Terrorism, and Criminal Sale of a Firearm in the Third Degree as a Crime of Terrorism, among other charges, for plotting to bomb synagogues in Manhattan.

Assistant District Attorneys Deborah Hickey and David Stuart, both of the Counter Terrorism Program, are handling the prosecution of the case, under the supervision of Assistant District Attorney Judy Salwen, Principal Deputy Chief of the Rackets Bureau, Assistant District Attorney Jodie Kane, Chief of the Rackets Bureau; and Executive Assistant District Attorney Michael Sachs, Chief of the Investigation Division. Senior Investigator Michael O’Brien, Deputy Chief Investigator Michael Wigdor, Chief Investigator Walter Alexander, Consultant Michael Tiffany, Deputy Chief of Intelligence Kevin Branzetti, Supervising Counterterrorism Analyst Andrea Mufarreh, Senior Counterterrorism Analyst Ryan Rittenberg, and Investigative Analyst Miye D’Oench also assisted with the investigation. Senior Computer Forensic Analyst Douglas Daus and Coordinator for Cyber Operations Nathan Weber assisted with the case, under the supervision of David Chan, Deputy Director of the High Tech Analysis Unit, and Steven Moran, Director of the High Tech Analysis Unit.

District Attorney Vance thanked the following individuals and agencies for their assistance with the investigation: the NYPD, and in particular, Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller, Chief of Intelligence Thomas Galati, Assistant Commissioner of Intelligence Analysis Rebecca Weiner, Deputy Chief Paul Ciorra, Deputy Inspector Paul Mauro, Captain Joseph Seminara, Sergeant Kevin Thacke, Detective Sherif Moussa, Detective Mohammad, and Investigative Analyst Jacque Singer-Emery; the U.S. Department of Justice Office of International Affairs, Criminal Division, and in particular, Trial Attorney Brian Nicholson; the United States Marshall Service in particular, Henry Gerbeth; and the Jamaica Constabulatory Force.

Google Bans Statistics and Math Because Racism (Update: Math Unbanned)

Stop the hate, numbers are indifferent to identity, therefore numbers are a racist evil that MUST BE STOPPED.

My ads-free blog itself is a probability theory site, with 27 million reads and has somewhere near 150k overall followers. It’s been read by Warren Buffett, Elon Musk, Nobel Laureates, multiple governments, celebrity athletes around the world, deans of many universities (on the syllabi of same), and a number of TV news anchors. So it’s been a great boon for Google to be noticed so kindly by essentially a charitable site promoting math education. What great people from all corners of the world and at all levels who can enjoy Google, until it suddenly died Friday afternoon.

My background is clean, and without a political or social agenda. I am not promoting any specific viewpoint. I teach probability math and that’s it. Have worked with both the Obama administration and advised on polling statistics for the Trump campaign, am an adjunct professor at three top universities, an editor of the peer-reviewed journal of the American Statistical Association, and wrote a best-selling statistics book (all the proceeds of which I gave to charity!) https://www.amazon.com/Statistics-Topics-Salil-Mehta/dp/1499273533

The NYT has a popular print article this weekend and they cited my Google blog, but alas it not links to an embarrassing malfunction, for many to see: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/19/business/the-stock-market-has-been-magical-it-cant-last.html

Again, a math site. An academic site that you can see from the various header tabs of the archives (http://web.archive.org/web/20170518181653/http://statisticalideas.blogspot.com/2012/11/statistical-ideas-website.html). These are applications of formulas and shouldn’t be subject of limitations of free speech. A lot of great people like it. Hopefully Google needs to take huge step back and reexamine what went wrong and how the product could be better for others going forward, so that they and all of us grow well. People’s faith in democracy is on the line. Faith that technology companies are looking out for our good first.

I have followed their common “appeal” form but no response for three days. Also connected with one of the VPs over the weekend and it still takes time until receiving this today! Just more of a reflection of how cold a company can treat someone very poorly: without any information, and lack of ability to move forward in their life (can I get real reasons if any, can I get advance notice, can I get my contact list back from gmail, and why are university properties unrelated to my blog shut down?)

Because you once did some math for Trump. Its a political thing man, Google must silence you lest you provide math to someone Google doesn't like.

Its for you're own good!

Update: Google decides that Math isn't racist after all.


Google also reserves the right to ban math again when no one is paying attention.

Seven People Stabbed in Islamic State Terrorist Attack in Russia

Islamic State's last desperate killing spree extends to Russia.

Isis has claimed responsibility for a stabbing attack in Russia that injured eight people, the group's Amaq news agency has said.

A man was shot dead by police after knifing people apparently at random in the Siberian city of Surgut on Saturday morning.

The state-owned RIA Novosti agency said two people were in critical condition in hospital.

"A man was running along the main streets stabbing people", the TASS news agency reported. There were initially fears of a second attacker, but police later said he was acting alone.

One person was killed and one person was injured in a stabbing attack in the German city of Wuppertal-Elberfeld today, according to police.

Wuppertal police are still searching for one or more suspects related to the stabbings.

No information has been released about the possible motive of the attack.

Islamic State of Losers Attack Finland

He was shouting a phrase in Arabic, I'll give you one guess. But probably one guess is all you will need.

Multiple people are injured after a knife-wielding attacker reportedly went on the rampage in Finland, sparking terror attack fears.

Armed police officers are said to have shot the suspect in the leg after he allegedly started stabbing people in the city of Turku this afternoon.

As he did so, he was apparently heard screaming: "Allahu Akbar". It was initially thought more than one suspect was involved in the attack, but this remains unclear.

A number of people - reportedly including a woman and a baby - were injured in the terrifying rampage, with claims that at least one victim was killed.

So the Religion of Peace is now stabbing babies in the name of Allah. Is it just me or is that like evil and stuff.

Eurabia: Terrorist Drives Van Into Crowd in Barcelona (13 Reportedly Killed 80 Injured)
Updated Bumped Second Attack)

Yup, another one... But it does seem that is Islamic State becomes weaker and more desperate to attack the actual frequency is less than at their peak.

Small comfort I know....

t least two people have been killed and several others have been injured after a van crashed on a pavement in a popular tourist area of Barcelona, authorities have said.

The vehicle hit pedestrians in Las Ramblas, a busy tree-lined promenade in the centre of the city, the Ministry of the Interior said.

Spanish media is now reporting that armed men entered a restaurant shortly after the attack took place.


My sources tell me that two terrorists entered a Jewish restaurant after the crash and attacked. While reports are the driver fled.


Still developing....


Also last week a Zodiac full of military age males, refugees they said landed on a beach in Spain causing panic, they fled into the city. Its unknown if that is related.

Update: Hostage situation.


I can't resolve the Jewish name with the Turkish restaurant thing either.

Anyway here is the landing I spoke of earlier.


Update: Obviously another one of those Asian Nazis.


Islamic State has claimed the attack, they say it was a direct order, but that's probably BS. It is definitely an attack in sympathy with ISIS but take all their claims with a grain of salt, no wait an entire *block of salt.

Update: Ongoing battles in Spain still this late. Live ammo, you can hear the bullets whizzing.


Thanks to William.

Updated again, according to police this is them responding to another attack, not a raid.


Police say it was a raid on a attack in the staging process.

As I understand the above videos the police where concerned or the terrorists were wearing suicide vests.

Sandcrawler PSA: Make History Don't Erase History

You know, I've not written about Charlottesville, because obviously when you gather enough morons in one place there is bound to be trouble.

In this case a moron went postal because some other morons were being morons. I mean you have heard of mob mentality, right? So basically there is a danger from morons in America both left and right. But then again morons are pretty much tolerated here.

I heard one girl say something about, "Get the facist boot off my neck!" or something. Young lady, if this were a fascist nation, you'd be dead already. Fascists like order to say the least.

So the media see the death of Heather Heyer as a great opportunity, the case of an innocent, just standing around.... you know. And it plays. Very bad deal all the way around. As they say in the sticks, "shit got out of hand."

Sad....

My advice, avoid clouds of morons. But still its playing and its playing well. I don't buy any of it really. Its politics at its purest. If not fake news, news twisted and molded to suit the narrative of the day.

You've heard it, "We must act", "direct action" all those, you know. Astroturf slogans on both sides.

This moron named James Fields, may he never see the light of day again. Because again any excuse he may have doesn't pass muster, he intentionally went into the cloud of morons.

So that is our challenge, not to let shit get even further out of hand. Its bad, but we do have have fish to fry.

But that still leaves the morons out there, acting ignorant and breaking things. So I've got one thing to say to the alr-right morons.

The world has NOT been taken over by Zionist Reptilian Space Aliens, turn that shit off and go ask your mother to slap the crap out of you 500 times..... in a row....

And there is barely one more IQ point between you and al-Qaeda. The alt-Rights Jew hatred sounds as paranoid as the Jews tricked us to kill each other and destroy our own countries paranoid delusional crap the Islamic Terrorists say .

And to the left, young and stupid is no way to go through life. Again the same, the fucking Lizzard People ARE NOT GODDAMN REAL! And what the hell is that kicking bronze BS? I was pretty sure you were going to whip off your sandals and go after it. What a bunch of piko dumbshits.....

Now that I have your attention. Rather than take down statues, why not find someone and build the statues that YOU want. Or, God forbid, do something worth while that gets you a statue.

I know that's a radical and difficult idea, but you know, its an American idea. Now get your shit together... and stop fucking up my day.

Me I'm going to have this done, but much larger, in granite.....

Manchester Attack Intelligence Failure

Jesus! I've often said that intelligence is useless unless acted upon, collecting blips for the sake of collecting blips is useless.

The Manchester Arena bombing was authorised in an online chat between a plotter, an Islamic State operative in Syria, a jihadist recruiter in Dallas and a Moroccan-born Islamist living in Turin, it was claimed yesterday.

The online conversation took place on August 28 last year using the Zello secure messaging app and was intercepted by the FBI, according to L’Espresso, an Italian weekly magazine.

One of the five people taking part in the chat asked: “Sheikh, I live in Manchester, in Great Britain. I live among non-Muslims. I have found work with them. Am I allowed to kill them? Is it permitted to kill them with a bomb?”

The sheikh, who is thought to have been living in Syria, replied with a phrase from the Koran: “Fight the pagans all together.”

The man from Dallas was identified by L’Espresso as Said Azzam Mohamad Rahim, who was born in America to Jordanian parents. He allegedly said: “To the boy from Manchester I say, OK, kill them! Show no mercy to civilians.”

Interesting, that the ones who whine about bombing civilians all day long bomb civilians with no mercy.

My apologies to the United Kingdom for our intelligence services failing to warn you and also it seems yours has the same problem. Take out the terrorists, no blips to collect, so the analysts take a wild guess on how dangerous this one or that one is.

Truth be told you should send them to GITMO till Cuba sinks.

By the way, we're doomed.

Bombs Away!

SOUTHWEST ASIA, Aug. 10, 2017 — U.S. and coalition military forces continued to attack the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria yesterday, conducting 18 strikes consisting of 29 engagements, Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve officials reported today.

U.S. Central Command continues to work with partner nations to conduct targeted airstrikes in Iraq and Syria as part of the comprehensive strategy to degrade and defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS.
Officials reported details of yesterday's strikes, noting that assessments of results are based on initial reports.

Strikes in Syria

In Syria, coalition military forces conducted 16 strikes consisting of 25 engagements against ISIS targets:

-- Near Abu Kamal, a strike destroyed ISIS oil equipment.

-- Near Dayr Az Zawr, a strike destroyed an ISIS wellhead.

-- Near Raqqa, 14 strikes engaged nine ISIS tactical units and destroyed 27 fighting positions, five command-and-control nodes, two heavy machine guns, a mortar system, a vehicle and an improvised explosive device factory.

Strikes in Iraq

In Iraq, coalition military forces conducted two strikes consisting of four engagements against ISIS targets:

-- Near Kisik, a strike suppressed an ISIS tactical unit.

-- Near Tal Afar, a strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed an ISIS-held building and a vehicle.

Aug. 8 Strikes

Officials also announced results today on 11 strikes consisting of 19 engagements conducted Aug. 8 in Syria and Iraq for which the information was unavailable in time for yesterday's report:

-- Near Raqqa, seven strikes engaged three ISIS tactical units and destroyed three fighting positions, three command-and-control nodes, an IED and a heavy machine gun.

-- Near Kisik, two strikes suppressed 10 mortar systems.

-- Near Tal Afar, two strikes destroyed an ISIS staging area and suppressed an ISIS tactical unit.

Part of Operation Inherent Resolve

These strikes were conducted as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, the operation to destroy ISIS in Iraq and Syria. The destruction of ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria also further limits the group's ability to project terror and conduct external operations throughout the region and the rest of the world, task force officials said.

The list above contains all strikes conducted by fighter, attack, bomber, rotary-wing or remotely piloted aircraft; rocket-propelled artillery; and some ground-based tactical artillery when fired on planned targets, officials noted.

Ground-based artillery fired in counterfire or in fire support to maneuver roles is not classified as a strike, they added. A strike, as defined by the coalition, refers to one or more kinetic engagements that occur in roughly the same geographic location to produce a single or cumulative effect.

For example, task force officials explained, a single aircraft delivering a single weapon against a lone ISIS vehicle is one strike, but so is multiple aircraft delivering dozens of weapons against a group of ISIS-held buildings and weapon systems in a compound, having the cumulative effect of making that facility harder or impossible to use. Strike assessments are based on initial reports and may be refined, officials said.

The task force does not report the number or type of aircraft employed in a strike, the number of munitions dropped in each strike, or the number of individual munition impact points against a target.

Rusty's expedition paid off, at last he's achieved his life long dream of staring lovingly into a Sasquatch's eyes.

A “large bipedal animal covered in hair” was reported in North Carolina’s McDowell County over the weekend.

In other words, a Bigfoot: The ape-like creature that cryptozoologists believe roams the nation’s backwoods.

The sighting happened just before 11 p.m. Friday in a forested area. No one was injured, though the group reports something threw rocks at them as they left the area. McDowell County is about 100 miles northwest of Charlotte.

Nadeem Muhammad Found Guilty of Carrying IED on Plane

Nadeem says someone else planted the bomb in his suitcase and he really was not a suicide bomber. Nadeem is FOS.

Nadeem Muhammad, 43, attempted to board a flight to Italy with a viable pipe bomb in his hand luggage on January 30 this year.

nadeemsswears.png

The bomb, built inside a sealed marker pen barrel, was designed to be activated manually – meaning it could not have been detonated remotely or automatically.

The prosecution argued that the only reason for Muhammed to take the device through airport security was to detonate it in the confined space of the plane, endangering the lives of passengers while causing serious damage to the aircraft.

Manchester Crown Court heard that security staff had initially believed the bomb was not viable, and Muhammed was released after being questioned by counter terrorism officers.

He was able to board a flight to Bergamo in Italy five days later – but subsequent forensic examination of the device found that the bomb could have been viable.

Muhammad, who was born in Pakistan but had an Italian passport, was arrested again at the first opportunity on February 12.

But hey he's mostly peaceful when he's not trying to kill himself and fellow passengers. Really!
The conviction comes as British authorities work to prevent another attack in the wake of dozens of fatalities after terrorists struck in London and Manchester last spring. In the 12 months up to March, police arrested 304 people on terrorism charges, the highest since 2001, according to Home Office statistics.

Islamophobia Victim Lubana Adi's Husband Rashid Jijakli Indicted For Smuggling Jihadis Weapons Via Turkey

So sad, I mean what's wrong with you people, she was only supporting Holy war against America and Israel while he raised funds and smuggled weapons for Jihad.

Phobes!

n April, the Los Angeles Times ran an op-ed complaining that Muslims were being singled out in airports. “Does the 4th Amendment apply to Muslim citizens at LAX?” Lubana Adi, its author, fumed.

Adi, a Syrian, told a sob story about visiting her “aged mother” and two brothers who were refugees in Turkey. Then airport security “groped” under her Hijab and demanded that she empty her purse. They wanted to know why she had visited a border city and where all the money she was carrying had gone.

“President Trump’s new security regime wastes yet more of our time and our taxpayer money and shows outright scorn for the spirit of the 4th Amendment,” Adi complained.

It was a shocking Islamophobic outrage. But now the Times is telling another story.

This one mentions that a business owner by the name of Rashid Jijakli had been indicted for smuggling military equipment to Jihadis in Syria. Jijakli had smuggled the equipment to Syria through Turkey.

What it neglects to mention is that Rashid Jijakli’s wife is Lubana Adi. But Adi mentioned that in her own op-ed. “I had later met and married a Syrian-American U.S. citizen, Rashid Jijakli.” The registry for the Palmyra Corporation, the check cashing business which Jijakli had used to fund the smuggling, lists his address as a home in Walnut, California that appears to be owned by him and Lubana Adi whose past media and social media mentions place her in the same locale.

This evidence would suggest that the Los Angeles Times ran an op-ed blaming Islamophobia for being subjected to extra scrutiny on a trip back from Turkey by the wife of a man who had smuggled illegal items to Islamic fighters through Turkey.

Rather than being singled out due to “Islamophobia”, the more likely explanation is that her husband was already on the radar of the authorities.

She abused her own nation.
“Like any loyal citizen, I want my country protected from any and all terrorist threats. But such ‘unreasonable searches’ are a waste of taxpayer money,” Adi had written.

But it was all a matter of how you define “terrorist”.

...As American soldiers were battling Islamic terrorists in Iraq and Israeli soldiers were being killed by Hamas, Adi was quoted as declaring that she had come to "support the Iraqis and Palestinians who are dying there.”

MPAC is closely tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Even Saudi Arabia now calls the Muslim Brotherhood, which originated in Egypt, terrorists. I mean when basically the largest worldwide sponsor of Wahabist Salifism calls you a terrorist, takes one to know one.

9/11 Terrorist Arrives in Jahannam

Ayman al-Zawahiri says Zuhair al-Maghribi, a 9/11 conspirator and as-Sahab media figure, is totally 100% dead.

BERLIN – Al Qaeda's leader has claimed in an online message that a German man believed to have provided logistical support to the Hamburg-based Sept. 11 hijackers has died. The announcement by Ayman al-Zawahri came in an Aug. 2 audio message in which he says a man he identifies as Zuhair al-Maghribi who worked for As-Sahab, the terror network's media arm, is a "martyr."

He didn't provide details or say when and how al-Maghribi died.

Al-Maghribi is a known alias of Said Bahaji who is believed to have helped suicide hijackers Mohamad Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah when they were in Hamburg, and to have fled shortly before the 2001 attacks.

Now is the time at Jawa when we dance!

Update: Cause of death was US.

On Techy Chicks

Women are really not biologically suited to be engineers, but then again neither are men.

Kids, I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other, and I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe that there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything.

Then came Google.... but I digress.

I find that women who are engineers are often very good ones. But good engineers are rare no matter the sex. Me, I hang on by the skin of my teeth most of the time ;-) All I have is talent and not all that much of it. But some...

But out of the general population the number of people who have talent as coders is relatively small. That's not to say that coding and creating software is something that is beyond most people to try out. But to be good there has to be a certain innate talent to start with.

What I see is a push in general top move more people where the jobs are. That is of course often technical fields. I also see a push for girls and women to try tech. Which is perfectly fine, everyone should explore their talents and find where they fit.

But, I think sometimes we create the expectation that yes you can, then reality hits when you find out, no, no you can't.

Tech is a bitch, the machine doesn't care one bit who you are or what your political leanings are. It does exactly what you say, maybe not at all what you wanted but exactly what you say. It takes a certain determined mindset to beat the machine.

So I've seen this many times with both women and men who go into tech, then find its not their cup of tea. That does not mean that they are dumb, its just their aptitude may not be suited to it. I'd say we have close to 50% women. But just this year I had two interns one male one female. The male didn't have "it". He's gone she just walked in. She will make it, though I think she has other talents that might take her further than engineering.

So expect the machine to treat you very very equally, it does what it does. Look around an advanced math class, you'll see some very talented women but probably even today there will be a few more men. The roles might be reversed in some other fields.

So ladies, if you are interested in tech, give it a shot. Men too. But first you have to have an aptitude for it. The machine does not give a rats behind about your social justice theory and it never will. That is a cruel reality that bites both men and women.

So don't create an unrealistic expectation that any woman or any man can be a software engineer. Its unfair that young ladies are told they can do this, because social justice, with no thought of what her talents and aptitudes are. Same with a young man, to tell him he can do tech because of his Y chromosome. He is as likely to fail as she.

I'll let you morons argue about the various talents of the sexes on average. But good luck convincing the machines.

Islamic State Was Fun

Linda Wenzel I'm sure enjoyed very much the barbarity of Islamic State, so much so she ran off from Germany to become a Jihadi bride.

She wanted to be Jihad Miriam, but now....

She suddenly wants her German family to rescue her.

Islamic State..... of Losers.
