Did Munich Killer Lure Children To Their Deaths On Facebook? Police Probe Fake Ad for Free Food at Massacre Mcdonald's Where Iranian, 18, Killed First Of His Nine Victims before Turning Gun on Himself

Munich was in lockdown for a major police operation around the city's Olympic Park, after the 18-year-old Iranian opened fire at the fast food restaurant, before targeting shoppers in a busy mall in the district of Moosach. The killer's body has been found half a mile from the scene after he reportedly turned the gun on himself. Police now believe he may have acted alone, after they initially went in search of three gunmen yesterday....

There Is an Urgent Need for India to Reclaim “National Interest” From Its National Media
Shah Faesal

My fears were proven right: Soon, I was told, there was a huge mob outside our colony, rallying against the remarks of the Zee News anchor asking the dead militants to be burnt along with garbage instead of being buried in India’s land; the studio and the street were competing with each other.....

An Old New Militancy
Syed Ata Hasnain

A terrorist’s days are always numbered and so were Burhan Wani’s. Leading the new militancy in South Kashmir, the 22-year-old angry young man from the passionately anti-India town of Tral brought an aura of romance to terror in South Kashmir....


.... France’s two leading scholars of radical Islam — former friends — have turned bitter rivals over their differing views. “Madman,” “thug,” “illiterate,” “paranoid,” “ass,” “not a thinker” — these are just some of the choicer insults the two men have hurled at each other...


Owaisi Surprised Many with His Remarks, Zakir Naik Hasn't
Mohd Asim

Especially in India, where Muslims have best seen the benefits of democracy, secularism, pluralism, the ideas propagated by the likes of Zakir Naik are not only obscurantist but also dangerous. The ideas that only Islam is the true faith and all other ways to God are wrong have to be eradicated. What must be emphasised and enforced is the Quranic injunction of "Lakum Deenakum Wale Yadeen" (To you your religion, to me mines). ..

Why The British Said No To Europe
John Pilger

The majority vote by Britons to leave the European Union was an act of raw democracy. Millions of ordinary people refused to be bullied, intimidated and dismissed with open contempt by their presumed betters in the major parties, the leaders of the business and banking oligarchy and the media.


"God does not want us sinking in a sea of shame," the Pastor says. "If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife, with the wife of his neighbour; both the adulterer and the adulteress are to be put to death. Now that sounds drastic doesn't it and it is - God will judge sexual sin - the Israelites didn’t get away with it back then, and we will not get away with it either."...


Bahrain’s Crackdown: Brutal King, Cowardly Allies

“If you know anything about psychology, you know that people that have a really, really strong resentment or above-average hate toward something, it’s because deep inside that’s what they truly are,” she said in an interview at her home in Boulder, Colo. “In Islam, it’s true that there is very low tolerance for homosexuality. He may not have been able to be himself.”....

A Heart-Warming Truth in the Heap of Lies about Kairana Exodus
Mohammad Ali

“We have formed a warm relationship. It feels comforting to have met such people after seeing so much bloodshed happening right in front of our eyes.” Standing in front of her rented house which was painted with Hindu symbols, she said she shared a warm relationship with the daughters of the landlord, “After we saw 13 people being killed in our village, we lost all hope in life. But in this family we found a trusted friend. The fact that we have such people helping others in traumatic times gives us hope.”..

What will Hindus like me get out of these demands? Nothing I can think of....

The Spartacus of America
Muhammad Ali

Can violence be beautiful? Quite by coincidence, a few weeks before Ali’s death, I was reading David Remnick’s classic King of the World: Muhammad Ali and the Rise of an American Hero. “Boxing in America,” writes Remnick, “was born of slavery. Like the Roman emperors who gathered at the Colosseum to watch their warring chattel, Southern plantation owners amused themselves by putting together their strongest slaves and letting them fight it out for sport and gambling.” Ali was the Spartacus of America, the man who led the slave rebellion, fought his battles armed with art and chutzpah, and tortured his enemies with his success, achieved on their terms.


India, Pakistan Continue To View the Opening of Trading Routes as Threat to Their Security
Khaled Ahmed

It is tragic that high-strung India and Pakistan have taken the opening of trading routes as a threat to their security, growling at each other while pretending to reach for their nukes.
