  • long-term, Tanzania, and indeed, other regions where acid attacks are growing in prevalence, need a fundamental shift in perceptions of the welfare of women. Unless, and until, that happens, the violence will continue.

3. Muslim Fuaed Abdo Ahmed Louisiana Bank Standoff
August 13, 2013 20-year-old man, Fuaed Abdo Ahmed of Yemen descent who had a handgun and rifle took women and a man hostage at the St Joseph branch of a bank in Louisiana. Ahmed shot two hostages who died and released a third, but was killed by police who stormed the bank. Police believe it was a planned attack as  Ahmed had books about hostage negotiations, not a bank robbery. Police believe he was angry at people who were "mean to him" and had voices in his head. Authorities did not make any connection to his Facebook endorsement of Islam or terrorism.

Why would just a crazy guy go to this much trouble to cause this much damage and keep so many police busy? Did this guy have any connections to white nationalist extremists?

7. Obama backs Muslim Brotherhood in deadly clashes? 
Pam Geller: Obama announced that the United States is cancelling its bi-annual joint military exercise with Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood camps/sit-ins were stockpiling weapons, torturing activists seeking to leave, exploiting women and children, and inciting violence. Brotherhood supporters were firing on soldiers and police. Brotherhood supporters destroyed scores of churches yesterday and today continue to chant, "with our blood, our souls we will defend Islam." Not Egypt, Islam.
Obama has done nothing to end the slaughter of non-Muslims under the sharia or protect the Christians in Egypt. Instead, he supports the savages.

The dead include 43 police, according to the government, but are overwhelmingly civilians.

At least 43 police officers are reportedly among the dead. A further 3,572 people were injured.
