(VERO BEACH, FLA) Translated footage of an interview Iranian Revolutionary Guard Commander Hasan Abbasi recorded with South Africa TV has been released on YouTube, showing the Islamic Republic strategist claiming to have an accessible network of terrorists inside the US.
Commander Abbassi: “I’ll be brief. We have two million Iranians there. Be certain that I will raise a guerrilla army from amongst them against you. You know this well. Look how vulnerable you were on 9-11 when four Arabs who don’t know how to fight managed to endanger your foundations.”
Iran was included in President Trump’s executive order in January temporarily halting immigration from seven nations with active terror insurgencies.

BRISTOL, UK — Two street preachers who were arrested last July on accusations of “causing a disturbance” and engaging in “anti-social behavior” after some listeners became offended by their speech about issues such as Islam, Buddhism, homosexuality and divorce have been found guilty of “intentionally alarming” the public with open-air preaching.
The verdict against Michael Overd of the U.K. and Michael Stockwell of the U.S. was handed down Tuesday in Bristol Magistrates’ Court. They were fined nearly $2,500 each.
The men had been on trial over accusations that they violated a section of the Crime and Disorder Act, which prohibits speech or behavior causing “intentional harassment, alarm or distress” that is “racially or religiously aggravated.”
During their trial, prosecutor Ian Jackson “told the court some of the statements made by the preachers may have been in the King James Bible, translated in 1611, but that did not mean they were acceptable in 2016,” according to the Daily Mail.

Mt. Etna is back with a bang as locals were treated to an awesome display of nature’s power after the latest eruption lit up the Sicilian sky.
As well as dominating the skyline in Sicily, Mt Etna is Europe’s highest and most active volcano, according to Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV). Monday night’s eruption, which began in the south east crater, didn’t disappoint onlookers and was visible from the nearby cities of Catania and Taormina.
Volcanologists describe it as a ‘Strombolian’ eruption, characterized by intermittent bursts of lava that can reach heights of several hundred meters as a result of trapped bubbles of gas escaping through the lava.
Both Mt. Etna and its neighbor to the North, Mt. Vesuvius, are classified by the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth’s Interior (IAVCEI) as two of the world’s 16 ‘Decadevolcanoes.
’These volcanoes are particularly closely studied given their history of violent eruptions, high levels of ongoing activity and their proximity to population centers.

It is a “reasonable probability” that terrorists will use biological weapons to create a pandemic that would kill tens of millions, Bill Gates told an international security conference last Saturday. The scenario the billionaire philanthropist described is disturbingly similar to plagues prophesied to occur in the end-of-days, and terrorists have already made attempts to bring it on.
“Whether it occurs by a quirk of nature or at the hand of a terrorist, epidemiologists say a fast-moving airborne pathogen could kill more than 30 million people in less than a year,” Gates announced in his address to the Munich Security Conference.
“And they say there is a reasonable probability the world will experience such an outbreak in the next 10-15 years.”
While “natural epidemics can be extremely large,” he warned, “intentionally caused epidemics, bioterrorism, would be the largest of all.”

GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala — The army of Guatemala has expelled the crew of a Dutch boat that had docked on its shores in an effort to transport abortion-minded mothers out to sea, where it would provide drugs to end their child’s life.
According to reports, the non-profit organization Women on Waves had docked at the Port of San Jose last week to offer medicinal abortions to mothers in the country. The group proffers abortions to women who are up to 10 weeks pregnant, as it transports them out to international waters to provide mifepristone and misoprostol.
As abortion is illegal in Guatemala, except in cases where the mother’s life is deemed to be in danger, Women on Waves thought it could get around the prohibition by offering the abortions out at sea.
“Guatemala has been chosen because the laws are very restrictive on the subject of abortion,” Quetzali Cerezo of the group Women in Equity, which partners with the organization, told reporters.
