A former Al-Qaeda member has revealed a strong connection between the terrorist group and the Saudi Royal family in the 1990s. More notably, he alleges that Saudi princes and terrorists discussed a plan to shoot Air Force One out of the sky.

The revelations came in the form of a testimony, delivered from a maximum-security prison, where Zacarias Moussaoui is incarcerated.

According to the New York Times, Moussaoui submitted the claim on his own initiative. He sent a letter to the judge presiding over the lawsuit filed by family members of 9/11 victims against the government of Saudi Arabia.

And so, for two days last October, lawyers were permitted for the first time to interview the terrorist at the federal prison – the most secure facility in the federal system, in Florence, Colorado. He gave a…

Abdul  Rahman is a well known propagandist for the FSA since the start of the war in Syria.

It is amazing that this man has not been locked up for inciting war and recruiting terrorists, instead of the British Government spreading his…

ISIL’s militants control a number of oil fields in Syria and Iraq, and they smuggle the oil through overland routes through trucks, through intermediaries in Turkey or in terms of other countries…

The latest execution was a Pakistani man charged with drug smuggling.

An AP tally says that all in all 83 people have been beheaded, while AFP puts the number even higher – at 87.

On Wednesday Riyadh beheaded a Pakistani national for heroin smuggling. He became the 13th prisoner from Pakistan to be executed by Saudi authorities for drug-related crimes since mid-October. Drug smuggling convicts make up most beheading cases.
