In a series of raids all across France, police arrested twelve suspected Islamic terrorists who are thought to be associated with the man who was killed in a shootout with police over the weekend. Bomb-making materials were found in the garage of one of the suspects, along with details on potential Jewish targets in France.
In other news, six Afghan policemen were killed and one was injured when a terrorist bomb they were attempting to defuse exploded.
Meanwhile, the United States is sending troops to Jordan to help the Jordanians construct a military base on the Syrian border, which may be needed if the civil war in Syria were to spill over into Jordan.

UK: Britain sinking under weight of welfare costs – While Unproductive Muslims cost a staggering £18+ billion a year!
October 9, 2012 · by admin · in Muslim Benefit Fraud, Muslims in Europe, Muslims in the UK, UK Muslim Demograhics, UK Statistics
According to (modest) numerical calculations based on government statistics from wikileaks and media reports (see ‘read more’ section), the British government spend a minimum £18 billion a year from tax revenues on unproductive Muslim immigrants. While the government is trying to create £12 billion in annual cuts from benefit payments by targeting the handicapped, elderly and poor amongst it’s own citizens, they have ignored to reject from the country a group that is highly overrepresented above anyone else in welfare exploitation.
Daily Telegraph reported in 2012 that 75% of all Muslim women are unemployed while 50% of all Muslim men are unemployed – rise from 13% for men and 18% for women in 2004. Muslims are also on sick leave more than anyone else, with 24% of females and 21% of males claiming a disability (2001 figures). Muslims are the most likely among all religious groups to be living in accommodation rented from the council or housing association (28%); 4% live rent-free (2004 figures). As if this is not enough, the total prison population in the UK amongst category A and B criminals (the worse crimes) is now 35-39% Muslim.
Although the statistics do not make it fully clear how many actually collect benefits, a rough estimate can be made. Money-wise it means that out of 5 million Muslims living in Britain (2012 demographics), 4.25 million Muslims, or 85%, live off tax payers. If we average this with the minimum benefit payment of £67 a week, at least £ 284,750,000 per week (£1.1 billion per month) is spent from taxpayer money to feed and care for Muslims who don’t contribute anything whatsoever to Britain’s revenues – except making more Muslims.
And that calculation doesn’t even include housing benefits, childcare support, medical care and other coverage utilized by the population. We can estimate that with housing, child subsidies and healthcare, Muslims cost the British government at least £1.5 billion a month, or £ 18 billion a year.
The Muslim population double every 7-years in Britain. By 2030 Britain will have a 40% Muslim population. And who will feed and house them? There is simply nowhere for the British economy to go but a collapse. 32 percent of Muslims on UK campuses believe killing in the name of religion is justified, 54 percent wanted a Muslim Party to represent their world view in Parliament, and 40 percent of young Muslims in the UK want the country to be governed under Sharia law (2004 report).
Pardon my raising this issue, but I would like to receive a conclusive response once and for all, for future judgement(I have been a long-time reader):
This news-post, contains entries by a certain “Kitman”, linking to the “American 3rd Position party”(and others of their ilk; “Press-TV”: anti-American(!!) and anti-Semitic propaganda machine, came & went a few days ago)…
Is this a platform you share?
Are you content with being tied to White Supremacists?(Like Kevin MacDonald? — “3rd-positioner” — so called).
How does their pronounced anti-Semitism(and hence, their Nazi-flirtation), fit with your support of Israel?
(Personally, I must say that you have never evinced any such hatred of Jews — but still, promoting hateful(like Kitman’s) views should also be unacceptable).
I’m aware of Kitman’s opinions.
I must remind you (and all our readers) that Kitman’s opinions are entirely his own, and do not reflect the opinions of the management at Gates of Vienna.
As our masthead says, “We allow a variety of opinions here at Gates of Vienna. Comments made on this blog do not necessarily represent the views of the blog’s owners.” The same applies to the personal opinions of people who send us tips.
Kitman is an invaluable tipster, translator, and video subtitler. His opinions expressed on other forums are his and his alone.
The stance taken by this site’s owners and contributors on the issues you mentioned is well-documented and requires no elaboration.
I looked at Kitman’s site. There’s nothing Nazi like, on it. It’s quite thorough.
The guy is really into exposing the PC/MC poison being spewed by the cultural Marxists of the Left and their enablers in the news media.
And most people are aware that the very act of criticizing any Leftist social policies is enough to get anyone labeled a anti-semite, racist, nativist, xenophone and Nazi.
Those labels are thrown so often by the Left to bully people that I don’t pay attention to them anymore and nor should anyone else.
The bottom line: people should be free to make up their own minds without a faceless totalitarian thug telling them whats good or bad.
Interested to read the comment from my fellow Briton. A man and a woman were arrested at Heathrow airport the other evening having returned from Egypt. It now seems that the man, who had taken sabbatical from the NHS to go to Syria, was the same person who shot a British journalist there.
However, if that is not enough, the mp for Perry Bar in Birmingham, Khalid Mahmoud ( not C of E!!) stated that many young people in his constituency are going to fight in the Middle East.
If he knows that and could possibly find out who they are then why is he doing nothing to stop it. I think we know why, silly me, he is 100% behind them.
Still at least we don’t have a muslim head of state in Britain yet, unlike you in the US. However, it wouldn’t surprise me if silly Prince Charles doesn’t prostrate himself before them when he becomes king. God bless our Queen for remaining loyal to the religion of this country, Christianity and refusing to be budged. If only they would put you in charge of the army Ma’am then we could stage the much needed coup.
” In a series of raids…Bomb making materials were found… along with details on potential Jewish targets in France”
It always irks me to read “Jewish Targets” as if Jews are clay pigeons in a shooting gallery.
It should have read “… along with details of plans to target Jews “
“Jewish Targets” and ‘to target Jews’ surely mean two completely different things.
When will the collective conscience of the world awaken and begin to roll back the universally accepted, unquestioning belief that Jews are legitimate targets where ever they live.
Example- The unrelenting barrage of missiles fired from Gaza into civilian population areas of Israel do not elicit even a yawn from the rest of the world.
I thank you for your prompt response.
Consider the issue(as I note that you don’t endorse any of the bilious material brought therefrom), fully withdrawn.
Forgive me for bringing it up.
And gratefully yours,

The “American 3rd position party”, is run by a virulent anti-Semite — Kevin MacDonald(who alleges the age-old trope about Jewish subversiveness in American society).
It furthermore, contains material speaking of a purported pollution of the “White Race”(read Aryan), and the need to “shield” it, figuratively, or otherwise, from such ‘nuisances’ as Jews, Blacks, Hispanics, et al.
Textbook Nazism to me(also, don’t forget anti-Capitalism and Corporatism).
We need to be extremely vigilant. The Left is very eager for such fodder, against the counter-jihad. We mustn’t give them any ammunition.(Especially, since I presume, you subscribe to none of the above).
Furthermore, I won’t even bore with the sort of anti-American disinformation propagated by “Press TV”(Iranian state-run channel), to which “Kitman” linked earlier.
