THE Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the terror attack in the Belgian city of Liege which left two policewomen and a bystander dead. "Radicalised" ex-drug dealer Benjamin Herman was on day release from jail when he went on a rampage with a knife before using the cop's own guns to execute them. ISIS said in an online statement a "soldier of the caliphate" had carried out the attack on Tuesday but provided no evidence for its claim. Belgian authorities have not said if they have evidence the 31-year-old inmate had vowed allegiance to the terrorist organisation or was acting on its orders. Prosecutors today said Herman, who was shot dead by police, likely intended to cause more harm as authorities searched for possible accomplices. Interior Minister Jan Jambon noted that the Belgian national killed a fourth person the night before the atrocity.

Terror attacks in the us
AN ex-boxing champion encouraged Muslims to purchase handguns and shoot "the sons of monkey peoples", a jury heard. Anthony Small allegedly took to YouTube to tell Muslims to hijack cars and carry out terror attacks in the name of Islam. The court was told that in a seven and a half minute rant including references to restaurants like Burger King and McDonalds he said the choice was "either to accept the flame grilled burger, or we are going to flame grill you from the sky". The 36-year-old claimed he wished to see a day when "tyrants" are removed and "we see a day when the Muwahideen then go to conquer the White House all the way in America and 10 Downing Street", the Old Bailey heard. The video, posted on Youtube on September 12 titled "Eid message: too many hajjis not enough muwahideed", a jury heard. In the video Small spoke directly to the camera and discussed the commercial and military influence of America and Israel. On his channel Small describes himself as a "former … [Read more...] about Ex-boxing champ Anthony Small ‘urged Muslims to buy guns and launch terror attacks in YouTube rant’

TWO fanatics accused of being members of the feared Islamic State 'Beatles' cell have warned of more terror attacks in Europe - and refused to condemn atrocities in London and Manchester. Fiends El Shafee Elsheikh and Alexanda Amon Kotey were captured by US backed forces in Syria in January. And now in an astonishing interview the "unrepentant" pair have warned that more attacks are imminent - and insisted they do not need to condemn wither the Manchester or London terror attacks. Elsheikh told Sky News: "You didn't sign up for it, you were born British. Many people who became religiously aligned to the Islamic State, it is a default, just like being born into a certain country." "We are in no way justifying anything Islamic State did. It is not an obligation of me to justify or condemn. When asked if they ever considered the beheadings to be "not what they signed up for", twisted Kotey said: "It's a bit like if a coalition airstriker carried out one of his airstrikes under collateral … [Read more...] about ISIS ‘Beatles’ cell warn of more terror attacks in Europe… and refuse to condemn London and Manchester atrocities
An American businessman took payments from a Cardiff -based firm to finance an Islamic State (Isis) terror attack in the US. Mohammed Elshinawy, 33, has been jailed for 20 years after he admitted accepting payments to support an attack by the terror group. An American court heard Elshinawy, of Edgewood, Maryland, received payments totalling $8,700 (about £6,200) from a Welsh company. According to a Department of Justice news release issued on March 30 “Elshinawy conspired with others to knowingly provide material support and resources to Isis”. The statement continued: “From February 2015 through about December 11, 2015, in Maryland and elsewhere, Elshinawy conspired with others to provide material support and resources, including personnel, services (including means and methods of communication), and financial services, to Isis. “Elshinawy and his co-conspirators utilised various methods of secret communication in order to conceal their criminal … [Read more...] about US man ‘took payments from Welsh firm to finance terror attack’
