Dutch Gun Registration

From Yahoo News:

The Dutch government rowed back Thursday after an uproar over reported plans to register the race and religion of gun owners following a string of European terror attacks.

Lawmakers and gun owner associations insisted the proposal by Justice Minister Ferdinand Grapperhaus risked breaching privacy rights and could be a form of “ethnic profiling.”

Islamists Release On Bail Because Of Their Religion

From The National Sentinel:

Two Muslim men and three women are charged with 11 counts of child abuse each after police raided their compound in New Mexico and discovered 11 malnourished children living in squalor.

Lawsuit Denied Against Social Sites

From Guns.com:

A federal judge in Michigan dismissed the suit in March — the same day an Orlando jury acquitted Mateen’s widow on charges of aiding and abetting and obstruction of justice — noting there’s no evidence any of the ISIS propaganda found on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube directly influenced Mateen to murder 49 people at Pulse nightclub on June 12, 2016.

Looking Back For Counter Insurgency Tactics

From SOFREP:

In the mid 1960’s and throughout the 1970’s, Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) faced a boiling communist inspired insurgency that sought to overthrow the existing government that was led by the descendants of European settlers. The Rhodesian Bushwar would last over fifteen years, coming on the heels of the Malayan Emergency and the Vietnam Conflict. Faced with bureaucratic constraints and operational shortcomings, the Rhodesians were forced to maximize the potential of their meager resources by creating highly reliable small unit forces that could conduct raids and “pseudo-operations” against rebel forces. Among these units were the Rhodesian Light Infantry Commandos (RLI), the Rhodesian SAS and the Selous Scouts. Though modern circumstances have changed, the tactics of the Selous Scouts continue to be relevant and apply to the ongoing fight against ISIS and the Global War on Terror.

As reported by Vocativ, Dave Ewing, a representative from Firearms-UK, a gun ownership advocacy group, said, “These tragedies may have been the eye opener to just how ineffective our laws are.”

Advocacy groups including Firearms-UK, Arm UK Citizens, England Wants Its Guns Back, and Legalise Guns in the UK, have taken to social media to make their perspectives heard regarding the strict legislation surrounding gun ownership in the UK and accusing the government of leaving citizens exposed to threats though the restrictions.

Media Ignoring Islamist Ideology

From Gatestone Institute:

Although Americans may be more familiar with Islamist attacks in Europe, North America, North Africa, the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent than with the perpetrators or the religion, it is the Quran’s content, the Prophet Muhammad’s sayings and conduct and current fatwas that, regardless of Trump’s rhetoric, have driven a wedge between the Muslim world and the West.

Indeed, contrary to what The New York Times piece asserts, it is not the president who is spreading the idea that “Islam is an inherently hostile ideology,” that “Muslims are enemies of Christians and Jews” and that “Muslims have always had a comprehensive, actionable, and jihadist plan to take over” — but rather the Quran itself.

Anniversary of Abduction of CIA Station Chief In Beirut

From SOFleteHQ on Instagram:

 

Thursday, 16 March 2017, marks the 33 year anniversary of the abduction of the CIA’s station chief, William F. Buckley. Bill, a legendary Agency officer, died on June 3, 1985 after enduring 14 months in terrorist custody. He was abducted in Beirut, Lebanon, which set off one of the most grueling periods in the CIA’s history. His legacy of bravery and resolve has inspired Agency officers who have followed in his footsteps. Elements of Buckley’s CIA tenure remain classified, but he was one of the first Agency officers to grasp the growing threat from international terrorism. In the late 1970s, for example, Buckley helped develop the Incident Response Team and the Counterterrorism Group, the forerunner to today’s Counterterrorism Center. His assignments took him around the globe, as there was no mission that Buckley would turn down. It came as no surprise to Buckley’s colleagues that he volunteered to serve as the CIA Station Chief in Lebanon following the 1983 Beirut Embassy bombing, the deadliest attack in CIA history. Underscoring his bravery, Buckley did so acutely aware of Beirut’s high threat environment, which had included credible threats against other US officials posted there. Buckley immediately brought energy and focus to the primary mission: countering the terrorists that had taken the lives of several CIA colleagues as well as State Department and Military counterparts. It was in the service of this mission on a clear morning thirty years ago that Islamic Jihad operatives kidnapped Buckley while he was en route to work. Despite a government-wide rescue effort, Buckley died in captivity in June 1985. CIA that year held a memorial service and honored him with a star on the Memorial Wall and with the Distinguished Intelligence Cross, the highest CIA honor. In 1988, Buckley was symbolically laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors, and his remains were returned to the United States in 1991. #Freedomisnotfree #GWOT #Shadows

Female IDF Soldier Stops Attack

From IDF:

As Lt. Maya watched the attack unfold, she knew that she had to do everything in her power to stop it. As an officer, it’s her duty to protect her soldiers, and as a soldier herself, it’s her job to save lives. That meant taking charge in the moment. “I felt like I had to take responsibility. They’re my soldiers, they’re my company, and as part of that sense of responsibility, I knew I had to handle it.”

After Knife Attack Gun Controllers Call For More Gun Laws

From NRA-ILA:

At the outset of the incident, university officials issued an alert warning of an active shooter situation on campus, urging students and faculty to “Run Hide Fight.” This information was then spread by various news outlets.

Rather than pausing to reflect on this tragic initial report or waiting for a full account of the facts, prominent gun control supporters rushed to their keyboards and pulled out their phones in a race to tweet their ill-considered reactions to the “shooting.”
