Hungarian officials detained four men traveling to the capital with bombs in their vehicle.
Investigators later uncovered a bomb making factory in their home.

Hungarian anti-terrorist police last week detained four people heading to the capital with explosives in their car, and found a bomb-making laboratory set up for a mass killing, the unit’s chief said on Tuesday, declining to rule out a link to Islamist militants.
Security has been tightened for senior officials entitled to “top protection”, the Counter Terrorism Centre said in a statement.
The center’s director general, Janos Hajdu, said the suspects had been detained last week as police stepped up investigations that touched on the security of these officials, whom he declined to name.
After the suspects in the car were detained, a subsequent house search revealed a bomb-making laboratory with “explosives and devices that were suitable for killing people to the utmost extent”, Hajdu told the state television channel M1.
He said police had also caught two other people with submachine guns, ammunition and silencers in their car, and that it was not clear whether the two groups were connected.

HAIFA, Israel – A recent suicide bombing in southern Syria shows the rivalry between Al Qaeda and ISIS is more than just a contest to see who can kill the most infidels — the groups are using classic terror techniques on each other.
The Nov. 15 bombing came at a top-level meeting of the Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade, a key ISIS militia known for its bloody and vicious hold over parts of the Golan Heights. Six of the group’s top men were killed, including Muhammad “Abu Ali” al-Baridi, the shadowy head of the group who went by the nickname “The Uncle.”
Al Nusra Front, Al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate, quickly took credit, gloating on Twitter about the “heroic” attack.
“The Islamic State [ISIS], that controls the closest area to the Israel border in the Syrian Golan Heights, suffered a severe blow and lost its entire top command in the area in one fell swoop,” noted Alex Fishman, a veteran military correspondent for Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot.
While ISIS and Al Nusra fight common enemies as well as each other north of Damascus, the two terror groups are in an all-out war south of the capital, along the Israeli border. It is in that part of the hugely complex Syrian conflict where the bitter infighting between the Sunni Muslim terrorist groups is most deadly and direct.
ISIS has largely captured the international spotlight from Al Qaeda, the group from which it sprang, with mass executions, gruesome beheadings and even the apparent use of chemical weapons. But while the black-clad killers have sown fear across the globe, the organization behind the infamous 9/11, 7/7, and countless other major atrocities, is not surrendering its longtime perch atop the terror heap.
Word of the suicide bombing trickled out slowly, in part because the world’s eyes were on Paris, where an ISIS attack left 130 dead on Nov. 13. Regional Arab media first indicated that ISIS in Syria received the stunning blow in the Golan Heights village of Jamleh. When news got out about the death of the terrorist known as “The Uncle,” who earlier this year posted a video on social media pledging his allegiance to ISIS, the devastating blow to ISIS was revealed.

A sign a Georgia country sheriff recently erected is generating a strong response, nationwide.
Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley placed a sign in front of the sheriff’s office on Tuesday morning, which reads:
WARNING: Harris County is politically incorrect. We say: Merry Christmas, God Bless America, and In God We Trust. We salute our troops and our flag. If this offends you…LEAVE!
In an effort to “stir people’s belief & patriotism,” Harris Co. Sheriff Mike Jolley posted this sign. pic.twitter.com/pTuXinUY0C
— Everything Georgia (@GAFollowers) November 25, 2015
The sheriff got the idea from the picture of a similar sign he saw posted in another part of the country. “I’m humbled by the attention the sign has received,” Jolley told WTVM.”Over the years, I’ve witnessed the silent majority grow and as a true patriot and a Christian, I felt it was time for the silent majority to speak up. I truly believe what’s on the sign.”
Since putting up the sign up, the sheriff has received hundreds of emails and Facebook comments in support of its message, according to WRBL.
Not everyone is pleased with the sheriff’s sign. The atheist group, the American Humanist Association sent him a lengthy letter on Wednesday, saying that a “concerned citizen” had contacted their office. The letter demands the sign be removed immediatelym charging it violates the First Amendment and the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause.
The document reads, in part:
While some residents of your community may support a sign with such a message, there can be no question that it conveys a religiously biased message that is invidious toward those who do not hold theistic, and particularly Christian, views…For a government official to affirmatively order those who do not support ‘Merry Christmas’ to leave the community, to expressly state that visitors must accept ‘God Bless America’ and other theistic messaging, is unquestionably an unconstitutional act of hostility.
The sheriff does not seemed too concerned about those who do not agree with his sign, which he paid for himself.
“I spent 20 years in the army to give everyone the right not to agree with it, and voice their opinion if they’re not and that’s fine. But after being the sheriff of Harris County for 23 years, I believe that the vast majority of my citizens here in Harris County agree with what’s on that sign.” Jolley said.

The small North African country of Tunisia suffered another major terror attack, the third this year. The attack should remind the world that Tunisia faces an array of deadly threats, including the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
Information is still coming in, but a suicide bomber reportedly detonated himself in central Tunis, the Tunisian capital city. He apparently targeted members of the Presidential Guard, an elite unit that guards the Tunisian president. Approximately 12 Guards are dead, with a dozen people wounded.
ISIS Related Attacks
There have been two other major attacks in Tunisia this year, both claimed by ISIS. In March, two gunmen stormed the Bardo Museum in Tunis, killing 22 people, mostly tourists. Three months later, a gunman burst into a hotel in the seaside resort town of Sousse and murdered 39, again mostly tourists.
ISIS has also claimed Tuesday’s bombing. If the group is indeed responsible, it marks a departure from its previous attacks in the country. The bomber targeted members of Tunisia’s security services, whereas ISIS’s two previous attacks in the country sought maximum carnage among civilians. Those attacks also utilized gunmen, rather than a suicide bomber.
Al-Qaeda Related Attacks
Attacks on security services have thus far been more in keeping with campaigns several al-Qaeda-linked groups have been waging for years inside of Tunisia. The Uqba bin Nafi Battalion, operating in the Kasserine region of Tunisia, has killed at least 22 members of the Tunisian security services this year alone, including 15 soldiers in a single attack. Tunisia has also accused Ansar al-Sharia Tunisia, an Islamic extremist group with ties to al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), of a number of terror attacks, including the assassinations of two politicians and the killings of eight soldiers in 2013.
Killing members of the security services also fits with al-Qaeda’s concern that it not appear to be targeting innocent Muslims. In 2005, al-Qaeda Emir Ayman al-Zawahiri rebuked Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq—the progenitor of ISIS—for alienating Muslims with the group’s brutality.
Al-Qaeda affiliates around the world have made a show of being faithful to Zawahiri’s hearts-and-minds approach since then. In videos it has released of its attacks, the Somali terrorist organization al-Shabaab highlights its fighters sparing Muslims. The assailants during the recent terror attack most likely perpetrated by an al-Qaeda-linked group in Bamako, Mali, reportedly released hostages that could recite the Shahada, or Islamic confession of faith. Striking security services, as in Tunis yesterday, would fit the canard al-Qaeda is pushing that it does not kill innocent Muslims. ISIS bothers little with that charade.
The Situation in Tunisia
Of course, ISIS hates the halting steps towards democracy Tunisia is taking, and relishes any opportunity to attack the country. A bomb in the middle of Tunis is also yet another hammer blow to Tunisia’s economically-important tourism industry ISIS had already crippled with its previous attacks on tourist destinations. And the al-Qaeda-linked groups operate almost exclusively in the interior, so an attack in Tunis would be a departure for them.
Whoever is ultimately responsible, yesterday was a reminder of the difficulties Tunisia faces. It is one of the world’s leading exporter of foreign fighters to Iraq and Syria, and its radicalization problem is centered in the interior of the country where the al-Qaeda-linked groups have been active. Tunisia needs to bring those regions into the mainstream, which means it will have to invest more there and urgently dismantle the economic patronage system that has left citizens of the interior, and many other ordinary Tunisians, on the margins.
Tunisia is also the victim of instability wracking its neighbors. One of Ansar al-Shariah Tunisia’s leaders has links to an Algerian terror group, the GSPC, that in 2007 rebranded as AQIM and operates throughout the Maghreb region. Some Uqba bin Nafi Battalion militants may have fought for some of the terrorist groups that hold sway in parts of northern Mali.
The biggest concern, however, is Tunisia’s neighbor to the east, Libya, that is fast becoming one of the world’s most failed states as it is ripped apart by an array of armed groups, including ISIS. The Bardo and Sousse attackers trained in an ISIS camp in Libya, and the explosives used in yesterday’s attack have been traced to Libya. Weapons from deposed dictator Muammar Gaddafi’s vast arsenal are circulating throughout the region, including into Tunisia. Libyan chaos will continue to threaten Tunisia until a measure of stability is restored, which will require sustained and serious effort from the international community.
Al-Qaeda and ISIS are determined, capable, and ruthless enemies intent on bringing a fragile U.S. ally to its knees. The United States must again rally to Tunisia’s aid to help this fledgling democracy in a volatile region.

And once again… The leftist perpetrator becomes the victim…
On Saturday an unhinged left-wing activists stormed Donald Trump’s massive rally in Alabama.
The activist swung at Trump supporters, screamed and refused to leave the buildings.
Here is the video:
A black protester at Trump’s rally today in Alabama was shoved, tackled, punched & kicked:
A Trump supporter at the rally sent The Gateway Pundit this first hand account of the incident.
No one kicked him or called him racial names. He laid in the floor refusing to get up & leave. Every time they got him on his feet he would try to lay down again. When they did finally get him on his feet & headed towards the door he tried to run back into the crowd shouting & screaming Black Lives Matter garbage. Finally when they were escorting him out of the crowd & towards the door is when he pulled up his outer garment revealing his BLM shirt.
A member of Black Lives Matter came looking for trouble & found it!
AL.com identified the man as prominent leftwing and Black Lives Matter activist Mercutio Southall Jr.
Mercutio now wants to sue Trump supporters for abuse!
The Daily Beast reported (Please note: Extreme bias and unsupported accusations throughout report):
Mercutio Southall was physically attacked at an Alabama event where The Donald was speaking and says he’s ready to go to court.
A black man who was physically attacked by Donald Trump supporters at a rally on Saturday said he is ready to pursue hate crime charges against those responsible.
Mercutio Southall’s attorney told The Daily Beast he and his client are working to file a complaint with an Alabama magistrate for misdemeanor assault charges against several men seen kicking and dragging Southall during a Birmingham, Alabama event. David Gespass said he and Southall may also pursue felony hate-crime charges against the men who allegedly called Southall a “nigger” and a “monkey.”

JERUSALEM—The sudden evacuation of a soccer stadium in Hamburg last week less than an hour before the arrival of German Chancellor Angela Merkel was due to a warning by Israeli intelligence of an imminent terrorist attack, according to the German magazine Stern.
The match between Germany and Holland was called off just 90 minutes before the scheduled kickoff. Chancellor Merkel and several of her ministers learned of the warning as they were preparing to head for the stadium. Their visit had been intended to demonstrate the government’s determination not to bow to terrorism in the wake of the attacks in Paris by Islamic State.
Federal Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere, who took responsibility for calling off the game, said he could give few details because of the need to protect sources and because “some of the answers would upset the population.” According to Stern, Israel had passed on an initial warning to Germany the day before the scheduled game of an attack in the works, but with few details. Officials in Paris and Brussels have spoken in recent days of the possibility that terrorists were planning to use chemical weapons.
On the day of the match, the information became more concrete, including the target and the hour of the attack, according to Stern.
Hanover Police Chief Volker Kluwe, announcing the cancellation of the game on German TV, said “We had concrete evidence that someone wanted to set off an explosive device in the stadium”.
Reports in the German media that a bomb was found in an ambulance near the stadium and that a suspicious package was found on a train have not been confirmed by German security officials.
=If the Stern report of an Israeli intelligence warning is verified, it would seem that Israeli military intelligence or the Mossad have been able to penetrate Islamic State’s operational arm even though there has yet been no direct clash, as far as is known, between Israel and the extremist group in Syria.
There have been clashes with a Jihadi group in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, which has affiliated itself with Islamic State and has fired rockets toward the Israeli resort of Eilat. They have also crossed the border into Israel on at least two occasions. Here too, it was Israeli intelligence, which was reportedly the first to declare that a bomb had been placed aboard a Russian airliner bringing tourists back from the resort of Sharm el-Sheikh last month.
It was previously presumed that mechanical problems were to blame. The alleged Israeli report was said to have been based on intercepts of radio transmissions between Jihadi groups in Sinai.
Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon told reporters earlier this month that Israel is monitoring the Islamic State and has succeeded in deterring it from attacking the Golan Heights, which borders Syria. He did not elaborate.

“Say it to my face!”
Those words last week from Senator Ted Cruz challenging Barack Obama may have been what Iowa voters were waiting for before putting their seal of approval on Cruz in the latest Iowa polls.
Western Journalism reported that Cruz made headlines last week when he responded to criticism from Obama. Obama called Cruz out for his stance on keeping Syrian refugees out of the U.S. Obama even implied hypocrisy on the part of Cruz, whose family benefited from an open door refugee policy toward Cubans fleeing the Castro regime.
— Katie Glueck (@katieglueck) November 25, 2015
Now, possibly as a result of Cruz’s strong words and firm stance against Obama’s foreign policies, the senator is in a virtual neck and neck tie with Donald Trump in Iowa polls. Quinnipiac University polls have Trump leading Cruz, 25% to 23%, and Carson leading Rubio, 18% to 13%. Trump supporters are likely to be unwavering.
One twitter user, Bill Mitchell of Charlotte, N.C., who is also a self-professed “Yuge Donald Trump fan,” tweeted about the Quinnipiac poll. He tweeted: “We have 4 new national polls and 3 new Iowa polls showing Trump CRUSHING Cruz yet the media reports ONLY Q-Poll showing it close. Typical.”
— Drudge Report News (@Drudge_Report_) November 25, 2015
According to Real Clear Politics, only the latest Quinnipiac poll of Iowa voters has Cruz in a dead heat with Trump. The national polls still have Trump as the clear front-runner.
But the Cruz campaign has a lot to celebrate, and a lot of work ahead of the Iowa primaries. Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier told Politico, “Sixty-eight days until Iowa…It’s game time.”
Politico interviewed Doug Gross, who is a knowledgeable Iowa Republican. Gross reportedly told Politico, “Once people start to have second thoughts, to the extent they do, about Trump, those … tea party Republicans will start gravitating toward Cruz…I think he’s got staying power…I expect him to win Iowa.”
No jihadi brides for you!
ISIS leadership denies brides to “inferior” Pakistani and Indian fighters.
Life in the Caliphate – Indian recruits treated like dirt by ISIS
ISIS also assigns Indian recruits with cleaning duties. Islamic State leaders believe the Indians are too frail for battle and are better suited to clean up the camps.
Zee News reported:
Islamic State, which lures young men into jihad from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, is instilling fear amongst them by saying that ‘Djinns’ would haunt them the whole life if they flee the battle field and return home.
‘Djinn’ are supernatural beings in Islamic mythology.
According to an intelligence report prepared by foreign agencies and shared with Indian agencies, fighters from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh as well as certain countries like Nigeria and Sudan are considered not good enough by the ISIS and are often tricked into suicide attacks.
Not only this, the IS commanders also burn the passports of the foreign fighters so that they are compelled to stay back.
The fighters from South Asia and Africa are considered to be inferior than Arab fighters and there is a disproportionately high level of casualties among the South Asian and African foreign terrorist fighters since they are forced to the frontlines of battle as foot soldiers.
Notably, the young men, who are enticed into joining IS with the promise of ‘jihadi brides’, also face disappointment.
Intelligence agencies say that the gender ratio in IS-controlled territory is skewed with very few women. And the few available jihadi brides are given away to senior IS commanders and ethnic Arab fighters.
