Pakistan’s mobile phone owners told: be fingerprinted or lose your sim card 3.3.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Government launches mass drive to gather biometric data from mobile owners in attempt to combat terrorism

Mobile phones didn’t just arrive in Pakistan. But someone could be fooled into thinking otherwise, considering the tens of millions of Pakistanis pouring into mobile phone stores these days.

In one of world’s largest efforts to collect biometric information, Pakistan has ordered mobile phone users to verify their identities through fingerprints for a national database being compiled to curb terrorism. If they don’t, their service will be shut off, an unthinkable option for many after a dozen years of explosive growth in mobile phone usage.

What scares the new atheists 3.3.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
The vocal fervour of today’s missionary atheism conceals a panic that religion is not only refusing to decline – but in fact flourishing In 1929, the Thinker’s Library, a series established by the Rationalist Press Association to advance secular thinking and counter the influence of religion in Britain, published an English translation of the German biologist Ernst Haeckel’s 1899 book The Riddle of the Universe . Celebrated as “the German Darwin”, Haeckel was one of the most influential public intellectuals of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century; The Riddle of the Universe sold half a million copies in Germany alone, and was translated into dozens of other languages. Hostile to Jewish and Christian traditions, Haeckel devised his own “religion of science” called Monism, which incorporated an anthropology that divided the human species into a hierarchy of racial groups. Though he died in 1919, before the Nazi Party had been founded, his ideas, and widespread influence in Germany, ...

Who is Mohammed Emwazi? From 'lovely boy' to Islamic State killer 2.3.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Picture that has emerged since Briton was identified from jihadi videos shows a progression from ‘painfully shy’ child to militant ‘played’ by Isis Four days after the knife-wielding Isis militant who gloried in the beheadings of US, British and other hostages was revealed to be the British national Mohammed Emwazi, details of his life and personality have surfaced from those that knew him. The picture that has emerged is riddled with apparent contradictions. Classmates described a quiet boy dedicated to his religion who dreamed of being a footballer. At secondary school he struggled with the usual teenage angst, unrequited love and an awkwardness around girls. He was a “lovely, lovely boy”, according to one former teacher, but had to take anger management sessions because he was unable to control his emotions. The fact that he portrays himself as a strict Muslim is laughable and shameful He wrote Arabic on the board to show us what it looked like and how it went in the other direction. He showed us a ...

All-American terrorists 2.3.2015 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
Meeting of members of the Republic of Texas On Valentine's Day 2015, some 20 "armed and armored" officers from six different local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies descended upon a group of 60 citizens who were meeting in Bryan, Texas, to conduct business as the Republic of Texas . The group, which claims sovereignty and is planning to appeal to an international court (they haven't yet decided which one), has its own government and currency. Disturbed by the foreclosure of a member's home, the group sent a summons to a Kerr County judge and to a bank employee. Those summonses were apparently the last straw piled on a bale of "simulated documents" with which the group has flooded the local courts, and prompted the law enforcement officials to act. It is not often that Bryan Police Department, the Brazos County Sheriff's Office, the Kerr County Sheriff's Office, agents of the Texas district attorney, the Texas Rangers, and the FBI combine to serve a search warrant for suspicion of a misdemeanor ...

Five questions Americans must answer about Iran 2.3.2015 Daily Kos
Next Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will deliver an unprecedented address to the United States Congress. Now, there's nothing new about Netanyahu inserting himself directly into the American political process. In 1998, the Israeli PM met in Washington with American evangelicals to push back on the peace process in a move organizer Jerry Falwell bragged "was all planned by Netanyahu as an affront to Mr. Clinton." Four years later, private citizen Netanyahu offered his full-throated support for the invasion of Iraq , testifying to a House committee "if you take out Saddam, Saddam's regime, I guarantee you that it will have enormous positive reverberations on the region." In 2012, Mitt Romney's "close friend" wasn't coy about who he wanted to see in the White House. And in the years before and since, Bibi has been a regular at the annual gatherings of Christian Zionists United for Israel ( CUFI ) to accept their support and their money, if not their End Times vision of the conversion and ...

A search for identity draws jihadis to the horrors of Isis | Kenan Malik 1.3.2015 Guardian: Comment is Free
They are as estranged from Muslim communities as they are from western societies First it was Shamima Begum, Amira Abase and Kadiza Sultana , three schoolgirls from Tower Hamlets who smuggled themselves to Syria during their half-term holiday. Then it was “Jihadi John” , the Islamic State executioner who was unmasked by the Washington Post last week as the Kuwaiti-born Londoner Mohammed Emwazi. The stories of the three schoolgirls and of Emwazi are very different. But the same questions are being asked of them. How did they get radicalised? And how can we stop it from happening again? These are questions being increasingly asked across Europe. A recent report by the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation suggests that there are now 4,000 European fighters with Isis, a figure that has doubled over the past year ...
