This is Sharia: Woman Kicked in Face For Wearing Slacks in Turkey
Aysegul Terzi was assaulted on a bus in Istanbul after the man claimed Islamic law demanded he attack the young woman.Secular moderate Turkey, yeah right.
In shocking footage the 23-year-old girl is seen being brutally kicked in the face by Abdullah Cakiroglu.
The thug was incredibly freed by prosecutors when he said he was following Islamic law by assaulting the woman and it was decided to classify the incident as an assault that did not justify custody.

Ahmad Khan Rahami's Relatives Whos Shared Apartment Praised Jihad on Facebook
Earlier in the week Jawa pal Jeff tweeted this image.
A second possible relative, known as Nasim Rahami, tagged in a family picture shared on Mohammad Rahami’s profile, as well as to other members of his family. Nasim shared an image in 2012 displaying the word ‘Jihad,’ a masked figure, and Arabic script often displayed on the Black Standard commonly employed by jihadist groups.
He was doing a little open source digging like Jawas do.
Two people who appear to be related to Ahmad Khan Rahami, the man arrested in connection to Saturday’s bombings in Chelsea and New Jersey, shared images in support of Islamist militancy on Facebook, according to Vocativ analysis. The posters share the suspect’s surname and seem to have lived in the New Jersey apartment raided by police on Monday morning.Here is a pic of Rahmi making Kabaabs in Afghanistan.
Mohammad Khan Rahami, who said online that he lived above the chicken restaurant run by the suspect’s family, shared an image around three years ago that appears to support jihad. The picture shows foreign fighters training in Syria, with a quote by Khalid Bin Walid, a military commander and companion of the Prophet Muhammad. “I bring the men who desire death as ardently as you desire life,” reads the quote, which is often shared on social media by jihadists. A reverse image search leads to a forum affiliated with Islamist and jihadist sympathizers.
I posted that pic yesterday ..... "Exclusive", I do not think that word means what you think it means. https://t.co/LDz79KE3O9— (((R. Shackleford))) (@mypetjawa) September 20, 2016

Effing Awesome Doubleclutch! NY Bomber Ahmad Khan Rahami Spent a Year Just Hanging Out in Quetta
Yes that's right Ahmad Khan Rahami spent a lot of time in Pakistan, just hanging around, traveling back and forth from the US, Afghanistan, Pakistan and by Pakistan I mean Taliban Controlled areas like Quetta.
New Jersey — Ahmad Khan Rahami, the man arrested for last weekend’s series of bombings in New York and New Jersey, traveled to Pakistan and Afghanistan several times without detection by the U.S. government, officials told The Daily Beast.Also F*ck me a running.
Rahami has made at least three and possibly four trips to Pakistan over the past 10 years, one official said. Investigators are now trying to determine where he traveled in the country and particularly if he spent time in the areas near the border with Afghanistan that have been the frequent target of U.S. drone strikes aimed at terrorist groups.
Rahami’s father also was in Pakistan as recently as July 2011, according to the family’s attorney, who informed a judge in a civil suit to which the elder Rahami was a plaintiff that he was not expected back in the country in time for a court proceeding the following month.
Update: Sigh.... Ahmad Khan Rahami's very own Muslim father turned him in for being a terrorist in 2014.
Two years before Ahmad Khan Rahami went on a bombing rampage in New York and New Jersey, his father told the police that the son was a terrorist, prompting a review by federal agents, according to two senior law enforcement officials.Yet another case where a possible terrorist was identified, written off and forgotten.
Separately on Tuesday, another official said that when Mr. Rahami was captured during a shootout with the police, he was carrying a notebook that contained writings sympathetic to jihadist causes.
In one section of the book, which was pierced by a bullethole and covered in blood, Mr. Rahami wrote of “killing the kuffar,” or unbeliever, according to the official, who agreed to speak about the investigation only on the condition of anonymity.
The father made the statement about his son being a terrorist to New Jersey police in 2014, when Mr. Rahami was arrested after a domestic dispute and accused of stabbing his brother.
The information was passed to the Joint Terrorism Task Force led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Newark. Officers opened what is known as an assessment, the most basic of F.B.I. investigations, and interviewed the father, who then recanted.

Totally Misunderstood African Taliban Immigrant Stabs 8 at Minnesota Mall
The man who stabbed and wounded nine people at a mall in Minnesota before he was shot dead by an off-duty cop was a “soldier of the Islamic State,” a news agency run by the terrorist group proclaimed Sunday.Geee I hope there is not some kind of Islamophoic a backlash against Islamic State.
The attacker — who was dressed in a private security uniform and made references to Allah — asked one of the slashing victims at Crossroads Center in St. Cloud if they were Muslim, police said.
Hours after the five minutes of violence on Saturday, the ISIS-run Rasd news agency said the unidentified attacker was acting on behalf of the extremist group, which has urged followers to go after people in countries that are part of a U.S.-led, anti-ISIS coalition.
It was not immediately clear if ISIS had planned the attack or even knew about it beforehand. ISIS has encouraged so-called “lone wolf” attacks.
Only a very small percentage of Islamic State supporters actually stab a bunch of Americans after asking them if they are Muslims. And besides they are creative, publishing such groundbreaking works as Human Slaughterhouse and Drown A Bunch of Alawites.
Dahir A. Adan, 22, is said to be a Somalian “soldier of the Islamic State” who emigrated from Africa to the US with his family 15 years ago.This isn't the African Taliban immigrant we're looking for, move along. Move along.
His father identified Adan to the Minnesota Star Tribune after his son was shot dead by an off duty police officer in Saturday night's frenzied assault.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack which took place at a shopping mall in the city of St Cloud.
Police have said the knifeman "made references to Allah" during his rampage and asked victims whether they were Muslim before attacking.
The assault is being treated as an act of terrorism after an ISIS propaganda channel declared Adan was one of its operatives.
Amaq news agency said he "carried out the operation in response to calls to target the citizens of countries belonging to the crusader coalition."
Terrorist? Oh Yeah This Terrorist Ahmad Khan Rahami
Speaking after multiple bombs either exploded or were found in the New York area, Mayor Bill de Blasio says police are seeking Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28. Both the FBI and NYPD want to question Rahami about the explosion that hit part of New York's West 23rd Street Saturday night.Here's a tip for you. Its a terrorist attack!
Rahami "should be considered armed and dangerous," the FBI says.
"The important thing is to get this individual quickly and to continue to be strong and vigilant," de Blasio said via Twitter. He urged anyone with knowledge about the case to call 1-800-577-TIPS.
The bomb is strait out of Inspire Magazine. Using christmas lights. Trust me, this is an Islamic Terror attack in support of ISIS and al-Qaeda.
Update: Its appears the suspect has been shot after police responded to shooting at cars near Elizabeth.

Possible IED Explosion at NY Gallery
Explosion took place at a small Shop called King David Gallery. I believe the owners are Israeli. Everything else remains unclear.— Meaghan Byrne (@MeaghanByrne_) September 18, 2016
Windows are blown out at St. Vincent de Paul. Directly across street from me. pic.twitter.com/pQFs95TI1c— Meaghan Byrne (@MeaghanByrne_) September 18, 2016
I see reports the Gallery targeted was Israeli owned.
The explosion, described by one neighbor as “deafening,” happened outside the Associated Blind Housing facility at 135 W. 23rd Street. The facility provides housing, training and other services for the blind.Earlier today a pipe bomb went off in Seaside and police are on the scene of a possible third explosion in Charlottesville VA.
Witnesses described hearing a massive noise — “100x louder than thunder,” one tweeted.
The smell of gunfire filled the air. People flooded the street from nearby bars and restaurants.
My only comments is the NYC explosion, if it was utilities you would not smell gunpowder. Looks like a device similar to the Boston Marathon bombings. Though at this time there are only 14 reportedly minor injuries. It's possible the dumpster contained or directed upward most of the explosion. There are reports the NYC device was in a dumpster.
Update: 25 hurt.
The Charlottesville incident appears to be a transformer issue.
And Now A Relaxing Little Jawa Intermission
You worked hard, unwind....
There, you feel better now?
Sandcrawler Totally 100% Blatant Ominous Political Message
As I look back on the Clinton presidency myself I recall it was all about Bill. Hillary never was particularly liked, its why healthcare reform didn't pass. Hillary was all over it. She wasn't that popular. It was an in your face to Mrs. Clinton when it went down at the time and she faded back a bit.
So remember, she is not Bill, cannot be Bill and never was or will be as Slick Willie was. Should she win, not looking good, I'll live I guess.
Now I will give The Clintons this, they may be marginally more competent than the Chicago wing of the Democrat party we have now.
I'd say Trump now has a 50/50 shot at least to win. Crunch time.

Abu Muhammad Furqan: He's Dead Jim
As long time readers know back in the day al-Furqan Media was the media wing of al-Qaeda in Iraq during the Iraq war. They were pretty much the inventor of the snuff video.
The al-Furqan watermark, upside down for effect.
Later al-Furqan was the media house for Islamic State of Iraq after AQaI rebranded itself under Abu Musab al-Zawahiri.
ISIS has several media brands but on occasion the al-Furqan watermark still shows up in newer ISIS productions.
We're happy to announce that the leader of AQI ISI and ISIS' al-Furqan media is dead as a rock.
Chief of Media Operations in the Islamic State, Abu Muhammad Furqan, killed. https://t.co/oOIs2bYEXG— switched (@switch_d) September 14, 2016
