Seven years after a terrorist attack, Nice has rebuilt itself.
In 2016 a lorry ploughed into a festive crowd in a terrorist attack that killed 86 people, and left the city in shock. Today Nice is trying to turn its response to that horror into a way to reinvent the city.
“You have made us stronger”, says the mayor.
Iranian government sources and media have shared news that they have caught 28 members of ISIS cell who were planning to set up 30 bombs in different places in Tehran to go off simultaneously.
The videos shared shows the bombs, suicide wests and weapons captured by security forces.
If the accusations are true, this would have been the biggest terror attack inside Iran in many years.

‘Scared to Death’: #Trump’s Prison Panic Admission Means He Knows He’s Doomed Says Legal Expert
It sickens me to no end to the complete failure of our politicians, the political class, and the yellow media. While the chattering class endlessly talk about India and some dirtbag terrorist being whacked on our soil, Canada repatriated literal terrorists that were the wives of ISIS jihadists and their offspring. They made a choice. We shouldn't be penalized for their actions. #India #ISIL #ISIS #terrorism #Cdnpoli #extremists #MiddleEast #justice https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2023/4/8/canada-repatriates-14-citizens-from-isil-camps-in-syria
Professor Joshi on how the objective of the violence is used to define an act as #terrorism, #insurgency, or violence by organized crime groups. This differentiation is critical because it influences #CounterTerrorism and #counterinsurgency operations.
— Sukhdool Singh was on the most wanted list in India. Indian agency NIA had just issued warrants against him.
— This comes amid diplomatic stand off between India and Canada over the killing of a Sikh leader in Canada.
:— #India has suspended visa services for the Canadian nationals, including those of Indian origin.
— Decision has come amid diplomatic standoff between India & Canada over killing of a Sikh leader in Canada.
Sukhdool Singh had been on India's most wanted list, with the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in India issuing warrants against him.
This incident comes amidst a diplomatic standoff between India and Canada, which began following the killing of a Sikh leader in Canada. The circumstances surrounding Sukhdool Singh's death are likely to further strain relations between the two countries, as they grapple with the complexities of addressing Sikh separatist issues on foreign soil.
I remember my first time at #WestGate mall they’re very discriminatory towards #Kenyans these days so I don’t go often I don’t understand is it #colorism or #racism but either way the large #Indian population are very discriminating.

Trudeau’s announcement about “credible allegations,” made alone and in dramatic fashion before Parliament on Monday, caused a seismic fissure in India-Canada relations that led to the expulsion of an Indian diplomat in Ottawa, who Canadian officials disclosed was the station chief for the external Indian intelligence service. #India #Cdnpoli #ForeignAffairs #Sikhism #terrorism #Khalistan https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2023/09/19/india-expels-canada-diplomat-sikh-assassination/
I'll explain it if Dutch police let me do some search
Let me explain,in #Europe there is something called #InterPol, a cooperation mechanism between law enforcement agencies
In #TheHague,NCB Netherlands aka "INTERPOL Desk" is located
which centralizes and provides intelligence to every police agency in #InterPol
They name themselves
Central Intelligence Division
and when I met them they had 15 officers

@Lats As the proven first terrorist in U.S. presidential office, who sent a terrorist mob to the Capitol to coerce, intimidate, harm = terrorize not only members of Congress (even from his own political organization) & law enforcement officers, but also his own then-vice president, i.e. waging war against the United States, while the world was watching breathlessly, the United States DOJ & DHS could already have had him shut TF up to protect the people & their United States by putting him in preventive detention under NDAA 2012, as has been practiced before on terrorists.
DHS definition of terrorism:
Under Section 2 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002:
(15) The term ‘‘terrorism’’ means any activity that— (A) involves an act that— (i) is dangerous to human life or potentially destructive of critical infrastructure or key resources; and (ii) is a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State or other subdivision of the United States; and (B) appears to be intended— (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping.
FBI definition of terrorism:
The unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.

What we are dealing with.
"After a prolonged investigation and trial, two Sikh separatists from British Columbia were acquitted in 2005 of murder and conspiracy in that explosion as well as a second blast that killed two baggage handlers in Japan. Many witnesses had either died — some were murdered — or apparently been intimidated out of testifying."
Are Canadians honestly defending this guy?
"charge sheet filed by India’s National Investigation Agency said that Mr. Nijjar was accused of carrying out terrorist attacks in India and that he had been “trying to radicalize Sikh community across the world in favor of creation of ‘Khalistan.’” 2/2
Earlier this month, Jody Thomas, Canada’s national security adviser, named India as a major actor in foreign interference — which includes activities like election meddling and disinformation campaigns on social media — even as Canada ventures to forge deeper ties with the country.

What we see in the assassination of Hardeep Singh Nijjar is that religious, nationalist, and authoritarian violence and extremism are global problems. We need governments and leaders who stand up for the rule of law, human rights, democracy, sovereighty, and peace around the world. Democratic states need to stand together for our shared principles. These are not one-off bilateral problems.

“@UKLabour Policy is Exactly The Opposite of What Angela Rayner Says It Is”
by Ricky at Council Estate Media on @substack
“If you want to find out what #Labour policy is, just ask Angela #Rayner and your answer will be the opposite of whatever she says. This is because, like clockwork, the Labour Party will u-turn within three days. It’s one of the laws of nature.
“[#KidStarver] Starmer was interviewed by Trevor Phillips who asked if he planned to treat the families of children who arrived on small boats as terrorists, meaning they could get five years in prison. (Say, for example, a 16-year-old crossed the channel to reach his uncle who was already living here and didn’t notify the police in advance.)
‘Do you actually mean to treat them as terrorists or not?’
‘Well, what I’ve said, Trevor, is we need to put them in the bracket of terrorist.’”
“You will be reassured to hear that Starmer told every socialist’s favourite newspaper, The S*n, that it’s ‘un-British’ to disagree with his immigration plans. In other words, Starmer doesn’t count you as a real British person unless you are willing to pretend non-terrorists are terrorists to appease the far right.
Only, I’m not even sure it’s about appeasing the far right any more. Starmer’s Labour is looking increasingly like it is far right.”
“Does this person who is currently courting arms dealers to donate to his party look like like he represents the left to you? Or do you think he’d be more at home in the British National Party?”

"ATU said they have captured members of the so-called Unite Muslims group with screen printed flags & bags. ISIS carried almost similar flag in the past but the govt downplayed. A CT officer who is known for writing movie scripts was present in the press conference."
- Muktadir Rashid Romeo
The government's actions, as outlined in this context, seem to be part of a potentially calculated strategy aimed at diverting public attention from the Adilur Rahman Khan case, especially in the lead-up to an election. By emphasizing the capture of members from the so-called Unite Muslims group, who were found with screen-printed flags and bags, which bear a striking resemblance to ISIS symbols from the past, the government appears to be employing a sensationalist approach. This could serve to exploit the fear of terrorism among the populace, conveniently providing them with a reason to downplay the Adilur case and any concerns related to it.
The presence of a counter-terrorism officer known for writing movie scripts at the press conference adds an intriguing layer to the narrative. It suggests a certain theatricality or dramatization in the government's presentation, potentially aimed at bolstering their stance on national security. This scenario raises questions about whether the government is strategically using the specter of terrorism to manipulate public sentiment and gain an advantage in the upcoming election, thus diverting attention away from issues like human rights and legal matters.

US Sees 'High Risk' from Foreign, Domestic Terrorists

#terrorism #united states #risk #assessment
#SpecialCounsel #JackSmith & his team have requested a federal judge in Washington, D.C., impose a "narrowly tailored" order restricting #Trump from making public statements that they argue could "present a serious & substantial #danger of #prejudicing" his 2020 federal #ElectionInterference case citing 'disparaging & inflammatory attacks'
This is a solid piece. #extremism on the far left isn't zero but it doesn't have a home in the Democratic party like the #farright has in the GOP. That's why left wing extremism remains small, uncoordinated, and (almost always according to the FBI) a local issue.
"In the wake of the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago, a man attacked an FBI office in Ohio, eventually being killed by law enforcement.
The New Republic’s Katherine Stewart attended a recent fringe-right convention in Las Vegas, reporting for the magazine. She detailed violent marketing and rhetoric, an amplification of that sentiment relative to past events she had attended.
“What turned up the dial on violent fantasies among this sorry group?” she wrote. “The short answer is obvious after the first round of speeches and conversations: It is the indictments of Donald Trump. For this crowd, Trump’s multiple arrests and indictments are not a setback; they are proof positive of their fondest fears.”"

"There was former Ohio congressman Anthony Gonzalez (R) — a former professional football player — who deemed the hostility he faced after opposing Trump too much of a risk for his family. Former Wyoming representative Liz Cheney (R) described similar fears from other legislators, as did former Michigan representative Peter Meijer (R). That these three are all former legislators is not a coincidence: They resigned or were beaten in primaries largely because they saw how the party had turned against them. See also: Romney, Mitt"...

@georgetakei I can remember Trump trying to smear Joe Biden as long as Donald J. was desperate to be able to abuse presidential office to evade United States laws, justice & accountability.
When smearing would no longer be sufficient, open insurrection against the authority & the laws of the United States became Trump's final straw.

""Romney’s announcement was accompanied by the publication of an excerpt of an upcoming biography of the senator... In it, we see one manifestation of the shift in American politics over the past decade, particularly on the right: the infiltration of political violence and violent threats.
Terror — native-born in the United States — has infected the discourse."
@marcelias "Sturmabteilung"-like partisan goon-squads intimidating or even terrorizing voters, election officials & assisting staff are absolutely intolerable.
“Law enforcement officials have blamed much of the rise in grid assaults on white nationalist and far-right extremists, who they say are using online forums to spread tactical advice on how to shut down the power supply.
Concerns about the attacks have continued in recent months, with incidents including a June indictment of an Idaho man accused of shooting two hydroelectric stations in the state.”
Please remember that #Putin praising #Musk in this article from Politico today is happening while Musk has just obtained licenses for #X to begin processing payments which means he will be able to make #twitter a gigantic right-wing fascism funding project.

Among 9/11 memories, I refer you to my 2015 essay Packaged Terror, about how ripples of the attack touched me personally, several states away in New Hampshire.
I'm pretty confident that if you have the time, you'll find it an engaging read.
Had I not lived it, I might doubt some of its details myself, but I quite assure you this is a completely true story. And the take-home message is still very relevant today.
Miracles can happen. Miracles do happen. You can make them happen.
“And it was for the next 10 seconds after that immediate impact – that was the only 10 seconds of the day that I was afraid. Terrified, in fact.”

Today in Labor History July 22, 1920: Police raided the Santiago, Chile, IWW headquarters. In Valparaiso, police planted dynamite in the Wobbly union hall and arrested most of the IWW organizers for terrorism. The raids were in retaliation for the three-month strike that year in which the IWW tried to prevent the export of grains at a time of famine and commodities profiteering.
