CAIRO (TheBlaze/AP) — A video released by the Islamic State group appears to show the killing of two different groups of captured Ethiopian Christians in Libya.
The 29-minute video released online Sunday purportedly shows two groups of captives. It says one group is held by an IS affiliate in eastern Libya and the other by an affiliate in the south.
A masked fighter delivers a long statement before the video switches between footage that purportedly shows the captives in the south being shot dead and the captives in the east being beheaded on a beach.

What ever happened to the leftist mantra ‘..Separation of Church and State?..’
And why is NOT ONE atheist speaking out against Islam being taught in American schools, yet they NEVER miss the opportunity to attack Jews and Christians?
by, Wisconsin Daily Independent
Union Grove High School history teacher Beth Urban sent out an e-mail to students describing a future assignment where the student is asked to put themselves in the shoes of a Muslim.
According to the e-mail obtained by popular radio show host Vicki McKenna, the students were to write a five paragraph essay pretending to be a Muslim. The student is asked to write about the daily struggles that they would face as a Muslim student in the United States. The e-mail goes on to remind the students that class has been watching documentaries that have the facts needed to write the essay.
The assignment begs to have a few questions answered.
First of all, what documentaries were watched and who produced them? The Middle East is known for producing several “documentaries” that are full of propaganda and anti-American sentiment. Is that truly the type of video that our students should be exposed to? Were there other videos shown to balance the debate on the subject?
Is this assignment a conflict between separation of church and state? There have been many documented cases of Christian students being denied the ability to pray in public school and today’s history books have been mostly stripped of Christian history. Why is Christianity allowed to be shunned in our public schools while teachers are allowed to assign an assignment as religious based as this?
Most importantly, are the parents of Union Grove High School aware that this type of assignment is allowed in the school’s curriculum? How about the local school board?
The role of a history class is to teach history and not to show sympathy for any religious group. Hopefully the parents will remind the faculty of this so these type of assignments can be avoided in the future.
Here is a screenshot of the assignment sent to the students from their teacher, Ms. Beth Urban:
(All Muslim) Zaytuna College in Berkeley, California
by, Earl Cox | jpost | h/t Frau Katze @ Blazing CatFur
A brand new, first-of-its-kind Muslim college at Berkeley, California, received its accreditation March 15, 2015 from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Zaytuna College has two co-founders. One, Hamza Yusuf, states that this first Muslim college gives “our community its first accredited academic address in the U.S. And we hope, God willing, that there will be more such Muslim colleges and universities to come.”
Most Americans know Islamic mosques are popping up all over the U.S., in big cities and in small rural towns. Less know there are some 22 Islamic training camps (12 along the east coast and four in California). I frequently fly between Israel and the U.S. At security, men and women in Islamic headdresses perform security checks and handle baggage. At a DC area mall, I observed the presence of almost as many Muslim mothers pushing baby strollers and trailed by their other children as there were women wearing traditional American garb. Indeed, the Obama administration has instigated a massive, deliberate importation of Muslim refugees from Syria, Jordan and elsewhere. This population is growing faster than most Americans care to admit.
Listen to Hamza Yusuf lie about every aspect of Islam:

In the old days, who would have cared how many nations or ideologies were seen, especially between Boston, New York and D.C. I remember when the Hare Krishna converts seemed to be everywhere in D.C. as were women from India with their long dresses and forehead jewels, as an example. But they didn’t fly airplanes into tall buildings or vow to kill all Americans who refused to convert to their religious beliefs. What does a little Muslim college in Berkeley, California, have to do with a rapidly expanding Muslim presence in the United States? Believe me, just as all Germans were not Hitlers; all Muslims are not terrorists but a rose by any other name is still a rose. Whether benign or guilty, the Quran is still the Quran and Sharia Law is Sharia Law.
Look at it this way. If you see bees swarming in your attic, you instinctively know each bee is not dangerous. In fact, the entire beehive, in the right place for the right purpose is beneficial. Think honey. But, what if your attic had two types of bees that had made their nests and were swarming and you couldn’t tell the difference between the two. One was deadly and the other was not. Now you have a dilemma that must be carefully solved. An exterminator would surely rid your home of the deadly bees, preserving most of the honey bees. Would you dare to intervene and try to coddle and preserve the killer bees the way the U.S. is coddling and preserving its Islamist enemies? Bees build hives; Islamists build caliphates – and they kill people to do it.
Hatem Bazien, the second founder of the new Muslim college, does not appear to be of innocent intent. Bazien was accused of whipping up anti-Semitism on campuses across the U.S. and also aided in the establishment of “Students for Justice in Palestine” which is an anti-Israel organization. He supported the Iraqi insurgency, April 2004, at a rally in San Francisco and appeared to also call for an uprising in the U.S. during the rally. Critics say he is “suspect,” and “any school associated with him is suspect.” And one expert, Nonie Darwish, a human rights advocate and founder of “Arabs for Israel” said, “He (Bazien) is an anti-Israel activist and he uses academia to further his agenda.” What would a proliferation of like-minded-Bazien-type Muslim colleges across the U.S. likely achieve over the coming years?
Follow-the-dots! Heed the clues! To do otherwise is a recipe for disaster or is evidence of a suicide mission. Which is it? America must wake up before it is too late. Over the past century, Progressive Socialists/Communists infiltrated academia, churches and local and national governments in America. America has changed drastically. Learning from the same playbook, Muslims are duplicating the Progressive wave and are infiltrating academia, churches and local and national governments.
America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, may land in the dustbin of history if her people fail to learn to differentiate between honey bees and killer bees, between Muslim pirates and the rest of Muslim society. President Jefferson didn’t spare the Barbary Pirates. So serious was the matter that he created the U.S. Navy to be the exterminator.
The Islamic State has released a new 11-minute video called “We Will Burn America” that calls for supporters to attack the American homeland and promises another 9/11.

At this juncture I would note the New York Times’ front page article on December 29 that described how America’s top war fighters, namely Special Operations Command, freely admit that they don’t understand the ideology driving ISIS and other Islamic terror groups:
WASHINGTON — Maj. Gen. Michael K. Nagata, commander of American Special Operations forces in the Middle East, sought help this summer in solving an urgent problem for the American military: What makes the Islamic State so dangerous?
Trying to decipher this complex enemy — a hybrid terrorist organization and a conventional army — is such a conundrum that General Nagata assembled an unofficial brain trust outside the traditional realms of expertise within the Pentagon, State Department and intelligence agencies, in search of fresh ideas and inspiration. Business professors, for example, are examining the Islamic State’s marketing and branding strategies.
“We do not understand the movement, and until we do, we are not going to defeat it,” he said, according to the confidential minutes of a conference call he held with the experts. “We have not defeated the idea. We do not even understand the idea.”
General Nagata’s frustration is shared by other American officials. Even as President Obama and his top civilian and military aides express growing confidence that Iraqi troops backed by allied airstrikes have blunted the Islamic State’s momentum on the ground in Iraq and undermined its base of support in Syria, other officials acknowledge they have barely made a dent in the larger, longer-term campaign to kill the ideology that animates the terrorist movement.
You can call in all the marketing executives and Harvard academics all you like, but when the Obama administration — meaning the entire U.S. government – as a matter of established policy refuses to acknowledge the ideology and intentions that our enemy publishes IN ENGLISH in the form of videos, audio recordings and magazines, and actively prohibits anyone in a government department or agency from discussing or speaking about said ideology, you really are beyond hope. And so is America.
ISIS: We Will Burn America (FULL UNCUT VIDEO)
*WARNING: Contains GRAPHIC Images

CHICAGO (WLS) — The ABC7 I-Team looked into ISIS terrorists in the United States- not just a smattering of potentially violent radicals, but terrorists present in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan and all 50 states.
In less than two years, ISIS has gone from a terror start-up overseas to what FBI Director James Comey calls a “chaotic spider web” in the US, with young Muslim men being radicalized in Illinois and the 49 other states. Comey suggests ISIS uses social media like a job fair. That’s how he says terrorists snagged three New York men facing ISIS charges.

“Those people exist in every state. I have homegrown violent extremist investigations in every single state. Until a few weeks ago there was 49 states. Alaska had none which I couldn’t quite figure out. But Alaska has now joined the group so we have investigations of people in various stages of radicalizing in all 50 states,” Comey said.
In Chicago, there are several current federal cases of teenagers being recruited online by ISIS, buying plane tickets to travel overseas; plans interrupted by U.S. counter-terrorism agents, in some instances at O’Hare Airport.
In New York City Wednesday, the latest plot – to blow up Coney Island – is a scheme authorities say by three Brooklyn men now in federal custody. According to a criminal complaint unsealed Wednesday, the men – ages 19, 24 and 30, from Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan – planned to train with militants in Syria. They also hoped to shoot police officers, FBI agents or military members in the US and even talked of assassinating President Obama, according to the complaint.
Prosecutors say they were lured by ISIS, a pitch Comey said is common.
“Slick propaganda through social media that goes like this: ‘Troubled soul, come to the caliphate, you will live a life of glory, these are the apocalyptic end times, you will find a life of meaning here fighting for our so-called caliphate and if you can’t come, kill somebody where you are.’ That is a message that goes out to troubled souls everywhere,” Comey said.
“There are vultures on social media who try to take advantage of our children,” said Omer Mozaffar, a Loyola University Muslim chaplain.
Even as terrorists use social media to recruit, federal investigators also use it to catch suspected terrorists. In the New York case, one of the suspects is said to have posted threats against President Obama on an overseas website friendly to ISIS. Late Wednesday afternoon he and the two accomplices were all ordered held without bond.
Muslim Terrorist Plot Included the Bombing of Police Officer Funerals
by, Jennifer Griffin | FNC
Two women suspected of being terrorist sympathizers were arrested Thursday for allegedly plotting to detonate pressure cooker bombs in New York.
An FBI spokesperson confirmed the arrests, but circumstances surrounding them or the alleged plot were not immediately clear. NYPD Deputy Commissioner John Miller said the arrests were part of a local and federal investigation.
“What I can confirm is that arrests were made by the JTTF and NYPD in a national security investigation earlier this morning in New York City,” he said.
The complaint, which identified the suspects as Noelle Velentzas, 28, and Asia Siddiqui, 31, said Velentzas idolized Usama Bin Laden, even keeping pictures and video of the Al Qaeda mastermind on her cell phone.
“The investigation has revealed that Velentzas espouses violent jihadist beliefs and has repeatedly expressed an interest in terrorist attacks committed within the United States,” the complaint stated.
Both women appeared at federal court in Brooklyn Thursday afternoon where a judge ruled that they will be held without bail. A preliminary hearing for the pair will be held on May 4. If convicted, both could face life sentences in prison.
U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Loretta Lynch said the pair studied how to carry out what could have been a deadly attack.
“We are committed to doing everything in our ability to detect, disrupt and deter attacks by homegrown violent extremists,” Lynch said. “As alleged, the defendants in this case carefully studied how to construct an explosive device to launch an attack on the homeland.”
The pair told an undercover agent they wanted to explode pressure cooker or propane tank bombs somewhere in the city.
“Siddiqui stated that Velentzas has been obsessed with pressure cookers since the Boston Marathon attacks in 2013,” the complaint stated.
ISIS Among Us:
The specific target of the alleged plotters was not clear. Local reports said that the public was never in any danger and that the pair was arrested without incident.
Last week, authorities in Chicago nabbed a National Guardsman and his cousin in a terror plot that included bombing an Illinois armory, an attack law enforcement said could have killed more than 100. The Heritage Foundation reported that the Chicago plot was the 64th case of a plot to commit terrorism on U.S. soil since 9/11.

During a recent ‘On-Air’ news report on Sunday 29March2015 from Tikrit, Iraq, Press Tv war correspondent Rahshan Saglam was providing a ‘LIVE’ update when an explosion occurred approximately 150 meters from her position.
The camera technician was able to capture the plume of chlorine gas rising above the explosion from the ISIS fired rocket. It appears ISIS was firing on the hospital in Tikrit.
Correspondent Saglam went on to describe the explosion and the fact that she has witnessed the increased usage of chemical weapons by ISIS militants on the Iraqi citizens.
In the video report below, the chemical weapon explosion occurs at approximately 3min. 15sec.’s

This is not the first time ISIS has used chemical weapons on innocent civilians.
The use of chemical weapons is in direct violation of the Geneva Convention and constitutes a war crime under United Nation protocol. Of which, Iraq is a member state, which permits UN oversight and adherence to the Convention’s resolutions.
The UN must immediately send in investigators and UN Peacekeeping troops to bring a halt to this horrific display of crimes against humanity, investigate these occurrences and bring charges against those responsible.

Calling for their beheadings, a self-proclaimed arm of the Islamic State published a list of addresses purportedly belonging to approximately 100 members of the U.S. military late Friday night.
Identifying themselves as the “Islamic State Hacking Division,” the group claimed to have obtained the personal information of military personnel from compromised military servers, databases and emails.

“[W]e have decided to leak 100 addresses so that our brothers residing in America can deal with you,” the group warned.
“Kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their streets thinking that they are safe,” the “Islamic State Hacking Division” added.
In the online document, names and photos accompanied addresses purporting to belong to the military personnel. An informal review of the information by TheBlaze appeared to show matches between some names, photos and listed addresses.
A Defense Department spokesperson was unable to authenticate the information, but said the U.S. military is investigating.
“[W]e are looking into it,” the spokesperson told TheBlaze in a short statement. “The safety of our service members is always a concern.”
Marine Corps spokesman Lt. Col. John Caldwell told TheBlaze in a statement that “NCIS is conducting in person notifications to the affected Navy and Marine personnel regarding this presently unverified threat/data breach.”
“It is recommended Marines and family members check their online/social footprint, ensuring privacy settings are adjusted to limit the amount of available personal information,” he added. “Vigilance and force protection considerations remain a priority for commanders and their personnel worldwide.”
The Air Force said they are also reaching out to members listed in the document.
“The Air Force is cooperating fully with the DOD on this matter,” Lt. Col. Holly Slaughter said. “We are taking the appropriate steps to make sure that everyone who needs to know is notified. As always, force protection is a primary concern.”
In January, the social media accounts of the U.S. Central Command was compromised by Islamic State sympathizers. Hackers used Twitter to publish a list of military members and their addresses. At the time, the Pentagon contacted affected individuals and local law enforcement.
