Kazakh Prosecutor: 'Well Aware' Of Identities Of Child Militants In IS Video. (RFELR).
Kazakhstan’s Deputy Prosecutor-General Andrey Kravchenko has said that the country’s intelligence and law-enforcement services have identified the Kazakh children shown in a recent Islamic State group video, RFE/RL’s Kazakh service reports.
The video, which Islamic State released in November, shows a group of Kazakh nationals, including children, undergoing military and ideological training. Titled “Race Toward Good,” the video caused an outcry in Kazakhstan. The Prosecutor-General’s Office said it was taking legal steps to prohibit its distribution and deem it illegal.
Speaking on the sidelines of a conference in Astana on combating religious extremism and terrorism on December 19, Kravchenko said that the Kazakh authorities were “well aware who these children are” and that Astana would “continue our work so that these children are not implicated in any criminal activities.”
Kravchenko said that while he was not able to disclose names, the children “reached [Syria] in various ways and in the main these are children who went their with their families.”
Kravchenko said that Kazakhstan is interacting with Google, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook to prevent the spread of such video clips via the Internet.
“We find that the staff of these services have an understanding of our work and they are coming to us for a meeting,” Kravchenko said, adding that Kazakhstan has now blocked around 500 websites.
The ban by Kazakhstan of the “Race Toward Good” video appears to have also affected news outlets in neighboring Kyrgyzstan.
In November, a Kyrgyz news portal, Kloop.kg, said that the Kyrgyz Interior Ministry had asked the site to remove a report it posted about the video. The site’s editor, Bektur Iskender, said that Bishkek was punishing Kyrgyz citizens in order to appease Kazakhstan.
On December 16, Kloop.kg’s owners reported that their site had been blocked in Kyrgyzstan after they refused to take down the report on the Islamic State video. -- Joanna Paraszczuk. Read the full story here.
Egypt Is Pursuing criminal charges Against Hillary Clinton and Pres Obama. (Conservativetribune).
President Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took great care of the Muslim Brotherhood while the terrorist group was briefly in charge of Egypt following the Arab Spring.
Though the group is no longer in power, as they were ousted by the Egyptian military, Egypt hasn’t forgotten the aid and comfort Obama provided the terrorist group during their short reign.
DIA: North Korea Planned Attacks on US based Nuclear Plants. (FreeBeacon).
North Korea dispatched covert commando teams to the United States in the 1990s to attack nuclear power plants and major cities in a conflict, according to a declassified Defense Intelligence Agency report.
The DIA report, dated Sept. 13, 2004, reveals that five units of covert commandos were trained for the attacks inside the country.
According to the report, the “Reconnaissance Bureau, North Korea, had agents in place to attack American nuclear power plants.”
The document states that the North Korean Ministry of People’s Armed Forces, the ministry in charge of the military, “established five liaison offices in the early 1990s, to train and infiltrate operatives into the United States to attack nuclear power plants and major cities in case of hostilities.”
“One of the driving forces behind the establishment of the units and infiltration of operatives was the slow progress in developing a multi-stage ballistic missile.”
North Korea is known to have at least two long-range missiles capable of hitting the United States, the Taepodong-2 intercontinental ballistic missile, and the KN-08 road-mobile ICBM, which has not yet been flight tested. Read more at FREE BEACON.
Islamic State now Trafficking Human Organs from Kidnapped Captives. HT: GatewayPundit.
AWD News reported, via Religion of Peace:
While the terror army ISIS is making millions of dollars a day through its oil sales, it also is profiting from trafficking in human organs, according to a number of reports that have raised the issue in recent months.
Even while the reports concede firm figures are practically impossible to corroborate, the Al-Alam news source said the chief of forensic pathology at Damascus University told the Syrian al-Watan that there have been more than 18,000 organ trafficking cases in the northern part of Syrian in recent years.
The report from Hossain Noufel said many of the victims are children.
“Syrian people … are now dealing with organ traffickers who are slicing off their own share from the unfortunate Syrian families,” the report said.
And according to BioEdge, which monitors bioethics developments around the world, a physician from Mosul told the publication Al-Monitor that large-scale organ-harvesting is taking place in local hospitals and that ISIS “was reaping significant profits from the scheme.”
The BioEdge report said the doctor, Siruwan Al-Mosuli, reported physicians were being hired to perform rapid organ removal operations from “recently deceased jihadis or captives.”
They are then “swiftly” moved to local or foreign buyers, the report said.Hmmm.....What's the Odds 'Sometimes NATO Ally' Turkey is involved in this organ trade? I would say more then 50/50.
The BioEdge report said the doctor reported ISIS even has a specialized force that deals with organ trafficking.

The Turkish public health sector has a history of operating in international human organ smuggling for money.
In 2010 The Guardian reported the theft of human organs by Yusuf Ercin Sonmez, a Turkish surgeon who was sought by Interpol in an international manhunt at the time.
Sonmez has been indicted for illegally taking human organs for sale from patients in Kosovo and accused of the same in Azerbaijian and of being involved in an organ theft ring in Ecuador.
In Kosovo, Sonmez was indicted for taking organs from Serb soldiers, captured in the 1998-1999 US war on Serbia and leaving them to die. Linked to Hashim Thaci, the US-backed Prime Minister of Kosovo, Sonmez had been repeatedly arrested for these crimes in Turkey but later released. According to The Guardian. More here.
Only 2 percent of pledged Gaza aid transferred ...So who's funding Hamas their Tunnel building? (HD).
Two months after donors pledged $5.4 billion to help rebuild Gaza after the war between Israel and Hamas, Palestinian, U.N. and other officials say barely 2 percent of the money has been transferred.The conference in Cairo had been hailed as a success, with Qatar promising $1 billion, Saudi Arabia $500 million and the United States and the European Union a combined $780 million in various forms of assistance.
Half was expected to go to rebuilding houses and infrastructure in Gaza destroyed during seven weeks of fighting, and the rest to support the Palestinian budget.
But of the total, only $100 million or so has been received, according to U.N. and other officials. While the EU and the United States have accelerated some funding that was already in the pipeline, very few new pledges have come to fruition.
"We have received funding and pledges of approximately $100 million for shelter and repair," said Robert Turner, director of operations for the U.N.'s Relief and Works Agency in Gaza.
"The Arab countries haven't paid anything until now," Mufeed al-Hasayna, the Palestinian housing minister, said this month. "The Europeans just a few millions, maybe something from the Swedes."
Hmmm....Why is UNWRA the first name that popped up in my mind? Turkey being Two...Iran number Three. Read the full story here.

Sometimes 'NATO Ally' Turkey says training of Syrian 'opposition' may start before March.(DailyStar).
ANKARA: Turkey could begin training and equipping moderate Syrian opposition fighters before March, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Friday.
The U.S. State Department said in October that Turkey had agreed to support the program, a core part of President Barack Obama's strategy in Syria to field local forces to hold and eventually roll back ISIS insurgents. Hmmm....I thought it was depending on Funding from the US? Qatar suddenly opened the 'Muslim Brotherhood' Jihad piggy bank? News appears as Qatar and Turkey meet.....purely coincidental :)
Related: Commander says 1000 FSA fighters trained by U.S. in Saudi Arabia
About 1000 Syrian rebel fighters have followed trainings in Saudi Arabia since the Kingdom agreed last September to host training camps for moderate rebels as part of United States' broad strategy to combat Islamic State group, senior Free Syrian Army commander told Zaman al-Wasl.
Lieutenant Colonel Khaled al-Hammoud, one of the trainers, says the first batch of FSA fighters is to enter Syria from the Turkish border to carry on their mission in fighting IS militants over a U.S.-Turkish agreement. He declined to specify when the deployment of FSA fighters would be started.
According to Hammoud, the primary plan by FSA is to storm Islamic State’s strongholds north and east Syria, "the battle will be covered U.S.-led coalition's airstrikes as FSA army carrying on the ground attack," he added.
FSA training agreement was outlined by Obama who wanted to expand campaign against the Islamist group, in time Saudi has reflected concern about Islamic State's threat to the region, according to Reuters.
Obama administration wanted the Syrian rebels to play a role in the fight against the stronger Islamic State forces inside Syria.
The commander said clearly that rebels had no choice just to ally with United States which vowed to beef up support for moderate rebels to overthrow Bashar al-Assad.
Al-Hammoud revealed the training is now in a narrow range, saying "we are planning to have training camps in the Syrian north and to increase the number of trainees to 10000 fighters, 5 thousands of equipped and well-trained fighters and the other half to be of reserve soldiers.
The former Syrian Army officer said the newly-trained units were formed of all rebel groups in Syria, assuring that rebel factions, including Ahrar al-Sham movement, can nominate fighters to follow training. Hmmm....So much for the fairy tale that the US would be vetting the FSA fighters.....ISIS II ready to take of...only better equipped.
