  • ISIS release shocking footage of the moment a 'gay' man was thrown to his death

    ISIS have released a new set of shocking photographs showing the moment a gay man was thrown from a roof before being stoned to death. The reprehensible murder was carried out in the Islamic State capital of Raqqa in Syria, after the man faced a ‘trial’ in an Islamic State court. In the original video of the man’s death, a bearded militant can be seen holding a megaphone, and announces the man’s death sentence, before denouncing him as ‘the child of Lot’, a reference to teachings in both the Qur’an and the Bible about the apparent ‘sinfulness’ of homosexuality.

  • Britain is becoming a friend who can't be trusted, says top US general - Telegraph

    His comments, moreover, came after President Barack Obama had taken issue with David Cameron when he visited the White House in January. For there are growing fears that cuts will jeopardise a central tenet of the post-Second World War transatlantic alliance – namely, that Britain can be counted upon to provide military hardware to US-led campaigns in defence of Western interests. Whether it is dealing with Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, or preventing Afghanistan from becoming a haven for Islamist terror groups, it has been a long-standing assumption of US military planning that Britain would deploy a combat force in excess of 10,000 men, as well as the fighter aircraft and naval vessels. During the 1991 Gulf War, for example, the famed 7th Armoured Brigade, or Desert Rats, took the lead role in the Army’s ground operations, which saw more than 50,000 British soldiers deployed to the region during the six-month campaign. q
  • EXCLUSIVE: Jihadi John exposed by web error: Killer downloaded software using student ID

    Mohammed Emwazi, 26, now the world’s most-wanted man after beheading British and US hostages, had been on a shortlist of suspects. Instead of buying the software with a credit card, he used a student code from London’s Westminster University when he studied computer technology. The number contained unique information which gave his date of birth, what he studied, and where, and information on his student loan. An intelligence source said last night: "In today’s electronic age of social media and technology, we chase the digital footprint before we chase the person. q
  • A Word from the Editor: Britain has to come out of the multi-cultural inclusiveness trance

    Whenever any member of the Labour Party utters even a bat’s-squeak of a comment about alleged Conservative failures on immigration, the pint-sized Speaker, John Bercow, should be invited to beat both containers with a large stick to remind said member of their utter hypocrisy. The Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper, wife of Blair Years bully-boy Ed Balls, was at it again last week, claiming that David Cameron’s immigration promise was in “tatters”, after the revelation that a whopping 624,000 newcomers arrived in the country last year. q

The New York Daily News dubbed the actor, who played Captain Kirk in the cult sci-fi series, as "Captain Jerk" on Sunday for his no-show.

  • MWC 2015: Samsung Galaxy S6 ditches the plastic, goes super high-re

    The wait is finally over and the Samsung Galaxy S6 is here. And it's the most beautiful Galaxy phone yet.  What’s different? The Galaxy-staple plastic is gone, replaced with metal on the sides and glass on the back. So while it might look a bit like the Galaxy S5, it sure doesn’t feel like that phone. With this shift comes an Apple-like unibody design and a sadly also-Apple-like approach to storage. There’s no memory card slot any more, but you do get to choose between 32GB, 64GB and 128GB Galaxy S6 models. q

    The last time the Islamic State (ISIS) aimed its grisly propaganda machine at Italy, Rome responded with a collective shrug. “There is no particular concern in the Vatican,” Reverend Federico Lombardi S.J. told the Catholic News Agency. Authorities in Rome seemed equally unconcerned. Today, the Italian government is taking the threat from the caliphate much more seriously—and perhaps with good reason.
