    He believes Khorasan to be Al-Qaeda’s new arm in attacking America, its “far enemy.” While they are Al Nusra’s allies in Syria, their role is believed to be to carry out terrorist attacks outside the country.
    The group reportedly uses the services of a very prominent Al-Qaeda bomb maker, Ibrahim al-Asiri, whose devices previously ended up on three US-bound planes. He is known to be a true pioneer of hard-to-detect bombs.

    Two Norwegian sisters and a pair of 16-year-old British twin sisters, all of Somali origin, are believed to have left their homes possibly to join rebel forces in Syria, according to news reports. regory Boosalis, a spokesman for the FBI in Minnesota, confirmed that the agency is investigating a case of a young woman from St. Paul potentially traveling overseas as part of a terrorist recruitment by radical Islamist organizations.Boosalis said the woman’s case is one of about 12 individuals from Minnesota identified as potentially leaving the country to get involved in conflicts overseas.
    Earlier this summer, the FBI said it was investigating whether young Somalis from the state were traveling to Syria to join opposition forces in the bitter civil war.
    It’s against federal law for U.S. citizens to take up arms in foreign conflicts, and government officials have expressed concern that radicalized recruits could pose a threat if they return to the United States.

    http://mobile.wnd.com/2014/09/u-n-to-dump-flood-of-muslim-refugees-on-u-s/Problems have also arisen with Islamic radicals recruiting young Muslim refugees in America. WND has reported in recent weeks about FBI investigations into 25 to 30 Somali refugees leaving their homes in Minnesota to become fighters for ISIS in Syria and the al-Qaida-linked Al-Shabab in Somalia.

    Pamela Geller, author of “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance,” said it should come as no surprise that the U.N. would do everything in its power to flood the United States with as many Muslim refugees as possible.

    She said the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, or OIC, which is comprised of 56 Muslim countries and the Palestinian Authority, makes up the largest voting bloc at the U.N. General Assembly.
    “They’re very powerful, they’re very dangerous,” Geller said. “You can’t make this stuff up.”
    Geller, Corcoran and others such as Islam scholar Bat Ye’or have long warned that there are two methods of creating Islamic supremacy in the world. One is through violent jihad. The other is through al-hijra, or the Islamic doctrine of immigration.

But the strict restrictions on immigration, many instituted to prevent terrorists from entering the country, had kept almost all of them out.

    U.S. eases rules to admit more Syrian refugees, after 31 last year
    2/2014—President Barack Obama’s administration announced on Wednesday that it had eased some immigration rules to allow more of the millions of Syrians forced from their homes during the country’s three-year civil war to come to the United States..Hundreds of thousands of Syrians have been taken in by neighboring countries such as Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. The rules changes granted exemptions on a case by case basis to the “material support” bar in U.S. immigration law, according to an announcement in the Federal Register signed by Secretary of State John Kerry and Jeh Johnson, the Secretary of Homeland Security. That bar had made it impossible for anyone who had provided any support to armed rebel groups to come to the United States, even if the groups themselves receive aid from Washington.at bar had made it impossible for anyone who had provided any support to armed rebel groups to come to the United States, even if the groups themselves receive aid from Washington.

    OFFICIALS: WIFE OF PARIS KOSHER MARKET KILLER WAS IN SYRIA AT TIME OF ATTACK
    Hayat Boumediene, the wife of the ISIS-inspired jihadist who killed four hostages at a Paris kosher supermarket, may have made her way into Syria to join fellow Islamic extremists, according to reports. Information has surfaced that she was not in France when the attacks were carried out, and she has now likely linked up with jihadists in Syria.

    US, Iran Hold Talks Over Nuclear Deal As Obama Warns Of ‘Big Gap’ In Negotiations
    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Sunday even as President Barack Obama said that a “big gap” still remains between the two countries over a lasting nuclear deal, according to media reports. The U.S. and Iran are scheduled to hold a second day of high-level talks in Oman on Monday.“The question now is are we going to be able to close this final gap so that they can reenter the international community, sanctions can be slowly reduced and we have verifiable, lock-tight assurances that they can’t develop a nuclear weapon,” Obama said, during the interview. “There’s still a big gap. We may not be able to get there.”……Youssef bin Alawi, the Omani foreign minister, seemed positive that a nuclear agreement could be hammered out …Obama also reiterated that the U.S. will not be “connecting in any way” the nuclear talks with Iran to the fight against the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, CBS reported. Obama’s latest statements come just days after reports emerged that he had written a secret letter to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urging cooperation in the fight against ISIS.

    Iran Appears to Be Launching Airstrikes Against ISIS in Iraq: Pentagon
    Iran is not a member of the coalition that Secretary of State John Kerry cobbled together to fight ISIS, and Washington and Tehran have ruled out working together to defeat the militants. Iran’s president told NBC News that the U.S.-led coalition was “ridiculous.”
    Kerry said Wednesday that the United States has not changed its policy against working with the Iranian military. If Iran is taking on ISIS with limited strikes, “the net effect is positive, but that’s not something that we’re coordinating,” he said.
    An Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Marziyeh Afkham, would not directly address airstrikes, but said, “There is no change in Iranian policy about helping the Iraqi government against ISIS or consulting and advising the Iraqi government against terrorists.”
    A Pentagon spokesman, Rear Adm. John Kirby, said Tuesday that U.S. officials had “no indication that the reports are not true.”

    Senior Iranian Commander Advising Anti-ISIS Forces Dies In Iraq
    ****** Iran is allied to Syria’s President Bashar Assad and the government of Iraq, who are battling extremist Sunni militants sweeping through much of Iraq and Syria. While Iran is not a member of the coalition that Secretary of State John Kerry cobbled together to fight ISIS — and Washington and Tehran have ruled out working together to defeat the militants — an unknown number of Iranian advisers and fighters are reportedly helping defend ****** religious sites against ISIS.

    That could prove difficult, given how long the scams have been going on — and how deeply ingrained the practice is.
    “Most of those ghost elements of the Ministry of Interior are sons, relatives, guards of senior officers,” a Baghdad police captain said.
    Mazin said he struck a deal with a superior officer in 2009 to fork over half his monthly earnings — 1,100,000 Iraqi dinars, equivalent to about $950.
    “The officer used to call me every month to receive my salary and give him his share,” he said. “He used to call me whenever we needed, for example, to renew our identification cards.”
    In exchange, Mazin was able to supplement his half-wage by driving a Baghdad taxi, which he said earns him 40,000 Iraqi dinars per day (about $33). Other perks, he said, were not having to “wake up early to go to my unit” and being able to retire after 10 years.

    Not Fighting ISIS: How Iraq’s 50,000 ‘Ghost Soldiers’ Run Their Scam
    As a paid member of the Iraqi army, Mazin should be helping his country fight ISIS. Instead, the father-of-three is battling traffic as a taxi driver in Baghdad.
    Mazin is one of the 50,000 “ghost soldiers” who pay a portion of their monthly military salary to superior officers in exchange for not having to turn up for duty. Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi has vowed to put an end to the scam — which has weakened his U.S.-trained army in the face of an ISIS insurgency. The U.S. spent billions of dollars on attempting to bolster Iraq’s military before officially pulling out of the country in 2011. It was forced to send advisers back there this year after ISIS extremists overran huge areas of Iraq and neighboring Syria.The prevalence of “ghost soldiers” — or “spacemen soldiers,” as they are sometimes known within the ranks — was revealed by Abadi’s spokesman earlier this month. The practice is considered to be one of the key reason Iraq’s U.S.-trained military has proven ineffective in the face of ISIS, particularly in the city of Mosul where the militants are in control.
