ISIS infiltrates Palestinian refugee camp in Syria’s capital


Originally posted on Global News:

DAMASCUS, Syria – ISIS militants infiltrated a Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus on Wednesday, marking the deepest foray yet by the extremist group into the capital, seat of President Bashar Assad’s power, Syrian opposition activists and Palestinian officials said.

Jordan, meanwhile, closed its only functioning border crossing with Syria, following heavy clashes on the Syrian side between rebels and government forces.

ISIS fighters, who control large swaths of territory in northern Syria, entered the Yarmouk camp from the nearby Hajar Aswad neighbourhood in southern Damascus and were clashing with a Palestinian group inside the camp. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the ISIS group took control of large parts of the camp.

If they gain full control of the camp, they can potentially threaten the heart of the capital.

Is there a cellphone video of the final moments of Germanwings flight 9525? Two major European outlets say they’ve seen it

Are the final, terrifying moments for 149 people trapped aboard a Germanwings flight, the seconds in which they realized the plane about about to crash into the French Alps, caught on camera?

Two major European publications, Germany’s Bild and France’s Paris Match, are claiming to have seen such video, which they report was leaked to both papers by someone extremely close to the investigation.

The video was shot from the back of the plane, and it lines up with official and leaked accounts of the cockpit recording that prompted investigators to conclude co-pilot Andreas Lubitz locked the captain out of the cockpit and intentionally crashed the plane, Paris Match reports.

“Metallic banging can also be heard more than three times, perhaps of the pilot trying to open the cockpit door with a heavy object.  Towards the end, after a heavy shake, stronger than…

The Untold History of Modern U.S. Education

“Education must also train one for quick, resolute and effective thinking. To think incisively and to think for one’s self is very difficult. We are prone to let our mental life become invaded by legions of half-truths, prejudices, and propaganda. At this point, I often wonder whether education is fulfilling its purpose.

A great majority of the so called educated people do not think logically or scientifically. Even the press, the classroom, the platform, and the pulpit in many instances do not give us the objective and unbiased truths. To save man from the morass of propaganda, in my opinion, is one of the chief aims of education.

Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal…

Lawyer says chaotic morning at Montreal prison led to Boucher’s release

MONTREAL – A chaotic morning at a Montreal prison may have contributed to the son of a former Hells Angels boss being prematurely released from detention, his lawyer suggested Monday.

Francis Boucher’s lawyer, Dimitrios Strapatsas, says he doesn’t have all the evidence yet, but what he has seen points to a tumultuous Monday morning on March 23 with prison officials dealing with several issues.

Strapatsas said four different inmates with the surname Boucher were housed at Bordeaux prison on the day his client was freed.

One of them was supposed to have been released a day earlier and had been forgotten.

WATCH: Hells Angel Francis Boucher, son of notorious biker kingpin Maurice “Mom” Boucher, turned himself into police Thursday night, ending a four-day manhunt.

“There was a rush to get him out as quickly as possible,” Strapatsas said.

“Because he wasn’t on the list to be released, he slipped…

Isis stone couple to death
A crowd of men, women and children watched as the couple were stoned to death in the town square.

Shocking new images have emerged showing Islamic State militants stoning a blindfolded and bound man and woman to death in Iraq.

The couple were sentenced to death for having sex before marriage.

A large crowd, including children and women, gather at the scene in the town square in Mosul in Nineveh province, to watch as the couple are murdered.

The bearded IS executioner-in-chief Abu Ansar al-Ansari pronounces the order of stoning for “fornication.”

An Islamic State militant with a yellow scarf covering his face is seen using a microphone and PA system to read out the charges against the couple, as the crowd jostles for…

"The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact." George Orwell
