Saudi King Warns Jihadists Could Attack US, Europe Within Months

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia warns that the West will be the next target of the jihadists sweeping through Syria and Iraq, unless there is "rapid" action.

The king of Saudi Arabia has warned that extremists could attack Europe and the U.S. if there is not a strong international response to terrorism after the Islamic State group seized a wide territory across Iraq and Syria.

While not mentioning any terrorist groups by name, King Abdullah's statement appeared aimed at drawing Washington and NATO forces into a wider fight against the Islamic State group and its supporters in the region. Saudi Arabia openly backs rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad, but is concerned that the breakaway al-Qaida group could also turn those very same weapons on the kingdom.
"If neglected, I am certain that after a month they will reach Europe and, after another month, America," he said at a reception for foreign ambassadors Friday.
Official Saudi media carried the king's comments early Saturday.

"These terrorists do not know the name of humanity and you have witnessed them severing heads and giving them to children to walk with in the street," the king said, urging the ambassadors to relay his message directly to their heads of state.

The Islamic State group has been fighting moderate rebels, other extremists and Assad's forces in Syria for nearly three years. Iraq has faced an onslaught by the Sunni extremists and their supporters since early this year, and the country continues to be roiled by instability.

Iraqi Women Kidnapped By ISIS Being Sold to Other ISIS Fighters in Syria For $1,000 Each

  • Human Rights group says ISIS has sold Yazidi girls and women
  • About 300 have been sold or given to ISIS fighters in Syria,
  • Syria monitors: ISIS sees them as "slaves of the spoils of war with the infidels"
  • The terrorists sell girls and women for $1,000 each

The nightmare of ISIS persecution continues for hundreds of Yazidi girls and women who were abducted by the Sunni Muslim extremist group and are being sold to its fighters in Syria, according to a human rights group.

In the past few weeks, ISIS has distributed or sold about 300 female members of the persecuted religious minority who were abducted in Iraq, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitoring group aligned with the opposition in Syria.
Who are the Yazidis and why does ISIS want to kill them?

In ISIS' eyes, the girls and women are "slaves of the spoils of war with the infidels," the Syria monitors said, adding that the terrorists sold them for about $1,000 each, claiming they had converted to Islam so that they can marry ISIS fighters.

The human rights group documented at least 27 cases of women who were sold and married to ISIS militants in the Aleppo suburbs, Raqqa suburbs and Al-Hassakah. (CNN.com)

Sam's efforts to become the first openly gay player in NFL history came up just short in a competition against undrafted rookie Ethan Westbrooks.

Sam officially hit waivers Saturday at 4 p.m. ET when all NFL teams had to trim their rosters down to the league-mandated 53 players. From there, the other 31 teams will have 24 hours to put in a claim for Sam.


Southern Utah University Removes Sen. Harry Reid’s Name From Building on Campus

Southern Utah was the University where Senator Reid graduated in 1959

...'He hasn't done much for this community'...'Done little to support SUU'

Fox 13now
CEDAR CITY, Utah – Southern Utah University administrators have removed the name of U.S. Senator Harry Reid from their Center for Outdoor Engagement. It comes after a group of Cedar City residents petitioned the university to make the change.

SUU president Scott Wyatt said it’s something they’ve been considering for a while, but is in no way politically motivated.

The school approached Reid as an alumnus and asked to use his name on one of their student centers. But Wyatt said recently when they looked at the purpose of the outdoor center, Reid’s name didn’t quite fit.

“The Harry Reid Outdoor Engagement Center is a little confusing to the outdoor center and its patrons,” Wyatt said. “The Harry Reid center remains, it will become fully operational once it is fully funded.”

The lack of funding is one reason Iron County Commissioner Dave Miller said their group approached the university. They said Reid has done little to support SUU, and didn’t think he deserved a place, just because of his position.

“He just hasn’t done much for this community directly,” Miller said. “And if he does, great, we’ll embrace it, but right now there’s no correlation of why that would make sense.”

Rand Paul: If 'Hillary Clinton Worked For Bill Clinton, She'd Probably Have Been Fired'

Another direct swipe at Hillary Clinton

Sen. Rand Paul on Friday defended his criticism of Hillary Clinton over the 2012 attack against a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The Kentucky Republican, rebutting claims that Benghazi criticism is "politically motivated," said Clinton's handling of the attack was a legitimate topic of discussion as she considers a presidential bid.

"There will be discussion over the next four years whether or not Hillary Clinton is fit to lead this country," he said at a Dallas event hosted by the conservative group Americans for Prosperity. "Is Hillary Clinton fit to be commander in chief?"

The audience fired off a robust round of 'no's.

The first-term senator went on to compare Benghazi to the 1993 mission in Mogadishu, Somalia, in which 18 U.S. military members were killed. Two months after the tragedy, President Bill Clinton announced the resignation of Les Aspin, then secretary of the defense. Aspin had taken heat for denying security requests for U.S. forces in the region just a month before the attack.

"He ignored the request and he resigned ultimately in disgrace," Paul said. "I think had Hillary Clinton worked for Bill Clinton, she'd probably have been fired."


Democrats More Afraid of Global Warming Than ISIS

Global warming 68%, ISIS 65%

Charlie Sperling
Democrats are more afraid of global warming than the threat posed by the Islamic State terrorists, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.

The poll shows that 68 percent of Democrats believe that global climate change is a major threat to the United States, compared to just 25 percent of Republicans.

In contrast, 65 percent of Democrats believe that ISIS is a major threat, three points less than climate change. Seventy-eight percent of Republicans cited ISIS as a major threat -+ a partisan difference of 13 points.

Eighty percent of Republicans also cite “Islamic extremist groups like al Qaeda” as a major threat to the United States compared to 69 percent of Democrats.
Republicans also trump Democrats in citing North Korea’s nuclear program, China’s emergence as a world power, Iran’s nuclear program, and the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians as a threat to the United States.

The only threat that both parties agree on is the growing tensions between Russia and its neighbors, cited by both at 54 percent

REPORT: Pope Francis 'In Crosshairs Of ISIS'

Francis, 'the greatest exponent of the Christian religion' is an ISIS target according to a new report

VATICAN CITY (CBSDC/AP) — A new report claims that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is targeting Pope Francis — a report that the Vatican says is simply not true.

According to Il Tempo, Israeli sources reportedly told the Italian newspaper that the pope is “in the crosshairs of ISIS.” The report stated that Francis is being targeted because he is “the greatest exponent of the Christian religions” and the “bearer of false truth.”

The Vatican, though, denounced the report.

“There is nothing serious to this,” Father Federico Lombardi S.J., a Vatican spokesman, told Catholic News Agency. “There is no particular concern in the Vatican. This news has no foundation.”

The Catholic News Agency reports that Italy has issued a nationwide terror alert, despite no imminent threats or specifics about a potential attack on the country.

On Friday, Britain raised the terror threat level from substantial to severe, meaning that a terrorist attack is considered highly likely.
