In what is not only a serious breach of privacy but also another chapter in the rightwing’s allegations of love jihad against interfaith marriages, several such couples have found their marriage notices on social media. The forwarded message had 13 images. These images were the Notices of Intended Marriage of Aswathy, Rahman and 12 other interfaith couples, who got married or whose marriages were yet to be registered under the Special Marriage Act. These notices, which solemnise marriages per section 5 of the Special Marriage Act, contain the name, address, age, occupation, photos and signatures of the bride and groom — essentially, the personal details of two private citizens. We are the next scapegoats of these people. If you know these people, you should help them. Many couples initially suspected that the staff from registrar offices, who may be biased against certain religious communities, might have leaked the notices to certain groups. Save them if you can. Their marriage notice, too, was posted on social media a few days after it was put on the notice board.
This paper explores the question of whether or not women can participate in combat operations, something that has been hotly debated by jihadis for decades. Generally speaking, jihadi groups across the ideological spectrum have held that this is permissible, but only in certain highly restricted circumstances. Despite this, to date, most have steered clear of mobilising women, and for this reason, the idea that jihadi women do not fight is now widely accepted as conventional wisdom.
By Brad Hamilton. His mission, a private and unsanctioned enterprise, was to rescue Diana Abbasi, a young Dutch woman who had joined ISIS and was therefore considered the enemy. But she was being raped by its thugs and desperately wanted out. Her father had spread the word. There was no one else to help, so Carney and his small band of ex-Kurdish commandos trailed coalition forces in a daring operation, risking their lives to save her.
They dodged trip-wire mines, suicide bombers and caliphate snipers blasting anyone in the streets. Some children got shot in the back as they fled. After completing six years of British army service in , Carney, 42, was working security for oil executives in Iraq. It paid handsomely, and after a decade of cashing in, he bought a mountain-top villa in Crete for himself, his wife and year-old daughter, Ntileini, an outgoing, carefree girl not much younger than those he hoped to save.
Instead, many had been whipped with canes and gang-raped. He got involved in June after a stranger called him at the suggestion of Matt Lambert, an MI6 agent who knew of Carney from his security work. Carney flew to Erbil in northern Iraq, where he set up a safe house and recruited a team of three with the help of a Kurdish intelligence pal.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Hoda Muthana ” does not have any legal basis, no valid US passport, no right to a passport, nor any visa to travel to the United States. Muthana is one of hundreds of Americans who have attempted to join the Islamic state and other radical Islamist groups, according to a recent report from George Washington University’s Program on Extremism.

How the Islamic State has expanded the role of women in jihad and what that means for the future of jihad. Women have long played an important role in jihad, but the Islamic State has, since its inception, expanded both the potential and scope of those female roles. In fact, conditions are already set for an IS resurgence. The Islamic State considers this cohort, as well as other female supporters, a key part of its future survival.
As Islamic State shifts from governance project to global terrorist movement, women will continue to play an important part of that transformation. Greater female participation in jihad will have a profound influence on the jihadist threat and counterterrorism efforts. In future, national security efforts will need to take this into account in countering terrorism and violent extremism, as well as in rehabilitation programs.

Five of these seventeen converts were women, some of whom treated jihadist sites as specialized dating sites. In fact, online radicalization is.
To date, there is no evidence of jihadists making inroads among the separatist fronts fighting for what they see as liberation of their homeland, Patani. But the conflict and a series of ISIS scares in Thailand are fanning fears of a new terrorist threat. Such fears are not irrational, though are largely misplaced and should not obscure the calamity of the insurgency and the need to end it. Direct talks between insurgent leaders and the government are a priority; a decentralised political system could help address the principal grievances in the south while preserving the unitary Thai state.
Al-Qaeda and ISIS have exploited protracted conflicts across the Muslim world to further their agendas, including in areas that are under the sovereignty of capable states but where central government authority is weak. In these countries, as well as Malaysia and Singapore, individuals and small groups unaffiliated with a militant network have also sought to join ISIS or act in its name.
Yet such patterns of involvement with ISIS or other jihadist groups to date have not manifested themselves in southernmost Thailand. To be sure, this diminishes but does not remove the risk of some Malay Muslims turning to jihadism. Motivations for joining jihadist groups vary and frequently are not linked to ideology or religious conviction. Jihadist propaganda could potentially sway some individuals. However, those Malay Muslims motivated by desires for comradeship, identity or devotion to a cause — not to mention grievances against the Thai state — appear more likely to be absorbed by the Patani liberation movement, given its roots in local society, than by transnational jihadist groups.
Indeed, the Malay-Muslim insurgency is distinguished by its parochialism. The militant organisation pursues national self-determination over a specific territory, seeking to join, rather than destroy, the international system. Patani-Malay militant leaders are antagonistic to ISIS and similar groups and see their fronts as bulwarks against jihadist influence.
Some elements in the Dutch jihadist movement remain intent on carrying out a terrorist attack. In some cases, this has led to specific plans. The potential threat posed by right-wing extremist elements remains limited to lone actors. In short, a terrorist attack in the Netherlands remains a possibility.
Migrant women, in particular, are attractive to jihadists because they Facebook is the de facto dating site to meet men who introduce them to.
This story was supported by the Pulitzer Center. Her two young brothers-in-law made fun with their faces. Her mother-in-law did gurgling sounds. All of them were trying to make her baby open his mouth wide enough to sneak in a spoonful of cough syrup. The simmering pot of vegetables and fish would be ready and the family would gather for supper. She would have been among the several Indonesian migrant women indoctrinated by men they met and married online and together, planned suicide bomb attacks with.
Young Farmer, who also went by the alias Abu Nakir Shaab, was arrested by Indonesian authorities for plotting terrorist activities. Last month, CNN reported that 3 Indonesian women working in Singapore were arrested in September on suspicion of taking part in terror-financing activities. The women were reportedly promoting ISIS online and donating money to overseas militants. One was reportedly prepared to become a suicide bomber.
Their steady income — reported to be 3 times more than what they would make in Indonesia — coupled with the alienation of migrant life make female migrants ideal for extremists looking for women who will join the cause either by funding their trips to Syria, bankrolling their ambition to be a mujahideen, or partnering to carry out a suicide bomb attack. It is a considerably small number considering the estimated , Indonesians working in Hong Kong, but the number could be higher.
Dete Aliah, a migrants rights activist, said that there are likely many more radlcalized female foreign workers.
An asylum seeker taking orders from Isis in Syria plotted to build a bomb with a woman he met on a Muslim dating site using instructions from YouTube. Munir Mohammed, 37, was in possession of a video bombmaking guide which had been posted on Facebook, YouTube, which is owned by Google, and other sites, and is understood to have been used by Salman Abedi, the suicide bomber in the Manchester Arena attack in May last year. Mohammed, who was living in Derby, also used Facebook to get in touch with an Isis commander, asking him for a recipe for making bombs.

This In-Depth report from our International Security Program examines broad trends in the jihadist terrorist threat facing the United States that have emerged over the last 18 years. We provide an overview of the terrorism in cases we’ve tracked since , and we examine three key questions: Who are the terrorists targeting the United States? Why do they engage in terrorism in the first place?
And what threat do they pose? The data also include a small number of individuals who died before being charged but were widely reported to have engaged in jihadist criminal activity, We define jihadists to include those who are motivated by versions of bin Laden’s global ideology or otherwise provide support to groups that follow a version of that ideology.
We exclude cases linked to Hamas, Hezbollah, and similar groups that do not follow bin Laden’s ideology and do not target the United States.
