    Islamic State terrorists kill at least 200 people in attack on Egyptian mosque

    Suspected Islamic State militants have killed at least 200 people after a mosque in Egypt was targeted with bombs and gunfire.
    Another 120 people have been wounded in the horrific attack on Al Rawdah mosque in North Sinai.

    Officials say militants in four off-road vehicles bombed the mosque and shot at worshippers during the sermon segment of Friday's prayers.

    Eyewitnesses have reported ambulances ferrying wounded people from the scene to nearby hospitals the town of Bir al-Abd, 25 miles from the North Sinai provincial capital of el-Arish.
    State television reported President Abdel Fattah al Sisi convened an emergency security meeting soon after the attack, with the government declaring three days of mourning.

    Egypt's security forces are battling an Islamic State insurgency in north Sinai, where militants have killed hundreds of police and soldiers since fighting there intensified over the last three years.
    Militants have mostly targeted security forces in their attacks, but have also tried to expand beyond the peninsula by hitting Egyptian Christian churches and pilgrims.

    The attack comes after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani declared Islamic State was over earlier this week.

    I just knew that one of the haters would delight in the fact that it was Muslims who were targeted - though obviously not "their own", AshkeNazi.

    It wasn't Muslims that were targeted, and though your use of grammar suggests you already know that, if not you wouldn't be alone in thinking this way. Most westerners ooh and aah because they're incapable of comprehending the Sunni-Shia reality, each believing the other are not true Muslims, worthless heretics and blasphemers, no better than the infidel.

    Hmmm, what else were they expecting to find in a fucking mosque then. Zoroastrians?

    Anyway, Strike Back:


    Egyptian jets have destroyed vehicles used in a bomb and gun attack on a mosque in Sinai that left hundreds of people dead.
    At least 235 people were killed and many others wounded when a bomb exploded in the al Rawdah mosque in Bir al Abed, and then 40 militants sprayed bullets into the crowds of people who ran outside to escape.
    Airstrikes were concentrated on several mountainous areas where militants were believed to be hiding out, security sources told Reuters.
    In addition to the vehicles targeted, the jets also hit "terrorist" locations where weapons and ammunition were stocked, according to a spokesman for the Egyptian army.

    Why is the IQ of Ashkenazi Jews so high ?

    Ashkenazi Jews are smart. Shockingly brilliant, in general. Impressive in brain power. How did they get that way? Ashkenazi Jews, aka Ashkenazim, are the descendants of Jews from medieval Alsace and the Rhine Valley, and later, from throughout Eastern Europe. Originally, of course, they were from Israel.USA (today): Ashkenazi Jews comprise 2.2% of the USA population, but they represent 30% of faculty at elite colleges, 21% of Ivy League students, and 25% of the Turing Award winners. Plus, “Jews have made up 50% of the top two hundred intellectuals… 40% of partners in the leading law firms in New York and Washington… 59% of the directors, writers, and producers of the fifty top-grossing motion pictures…”

    Israel: In 1922 this swamp-and-desert land had an impoverished population of 752,000 inhabitants. Today there are 7,746,000 residents, with a large Ashkenazi population (3 million, and 60% of the workforce) that has elevated it into a high-tech entrepreneurial nation with the highest per capita income in the region. Israel rates 1st in the world in graduate degrees, 1st in museums, 1st in home computers, and 1st in publishing scientific papers.

    Personally, I find the Nobel Prize statistic the most amazing. Consider this: if everybody on the planet was an Ashkenazi Jew, would the result be 117 times more Nobel Prize-winning caliber individuals, with 117 times as many spectacular achievements, per annum? INSTANT SINGULARITY!

    Pakistan protests: Six dead and hundreds injured as army called to restore calm after clashes with Islamists

    Pakistan calls in army to end anti-blasphemy protests

    Islamabad, Pakistan- The Pakistani army has been called in to restore order to the capital after clashes between anti-blasphemy protesters and police left at least 174 people injured.
    Thousands of riot police and paramilitary personnel on Saturday fired tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannon at the protesters in an attempt to dislodge them from a major highway into Islamabad.
    The protesters, numbering as many as 2,000, stood their ground, fighting back by throwing stones and beating police with sticks and metal rods in running battles that continued throughout the day.
    The protesters have been blocking the Islamabad expressway, the main road into the capital, since November 8, demanding the resignation of Federal Law Minister Zahid Hamid over a perceived softening of the state's position on blasphemy.
    Last week, a Pakistani court ordered the government to clear the sit-in protest, prompting a series of meetings between protest leaders and the government to attempt to reconcile differences.
    By midday, the demonstrators appeared to have beaten back the police to roadblocks located several kilometres away from the site of the protest.
    "We will remain deployed but are holding our positions for now," Khalid Khattak, Islamabad's police chief, told Al Jazeera. "We do not want to cause further casualties [and] will adopt a new strategy soon."
    At least 111 of those injured in the clashes were members of the police or other security forces, said Dr Farrukh Kamal, an official at the PIMS government hospital where most of the wounded were being treated.
    Official figures on how many protesters had been arrested during the crackdown were not immediately available.
    Caught in the crossfire

    Liaquat Kazmi, 30, was standing outside his home near the Faizabad interchange, where the protest is centred, when he was manhandled and beaten by police as the crackdown got under way.
    "I am just a regular citizen, I have no connection to the protesters or to the police," he said from his hospital bed. "Without asking any questions as to who I was, [the police] brutally beat me, and then one of them shot me at close range with a rubber bullet."
    Kazmi suffered a serious wound to the chest, but doctors said he would make a full recovery.
    Safoor Akram, 23, a police constable from the nearby town of Rawat, was among those tasked with being the first wave in the clearing operation against the protesters.
    "We were surrounded by those maulvis [religious leaders]. First, they stole our mobiles and wallets, and then they beat us mercilessly with sticks and their fists," he told Al Jazeera.

    Akram and two other policemen were then taken hostage and held by the protesters for five hours, he said. They were eventually released.
    As the crackdown got under way, Pakistan’s media regulator ordered all television news channels other than the state broadcaster taken off air, saying their live coverage was compromising the security operation.
    Shortly thereafter, access to social media sites Twitter and Facebook was also cut across the country.
    Protesters digging in

    By nightfall, small protests had spread to other cities, with gatherings and limited clashes reported from Pakistan's largest city, Karachi, as well as in Lahore, Gujranwala and Faisalabad.
    In Islamabad, the protesters appeared to have dug in for the night, with more than 1,000 gathered around a makeshift stage, raising slogans of solidarity with Islam's Prophet and vowing not to back down.
    The smell of tear gas hung heavy in the air, hours after the last shell had been fired from the day’s onslaught.
    The road that has become the protesters home over the last two weeks was strewn with stones and other detritus from the earlier battle. Among the crowd, many protesters stood armed with sticks and rods, policing the entry points of the demonstration.
    Nearby, many others were huddled around small fires in makeshift tents, as night drew in.

    ...in contrast to the westerners, they do not "kill each other as they have done for centuries", haven't they?

    BTW, perhaps you might know, the muslim countries - mainly as the ones called formerly "Levant" - had not been left alone for centuries.
    Ever heard something about "Crusaders"?
    Not to mention the actions by Romers...

    You obviously missed my point. Yes, westerners have killed each other for centuries (not my point). IF, westerners were able to leave the middle east alone, which they wont, maybe people in the middle east would be more apt to engage each other rather than the rest of the world (my point).
