by Khadija Khan Last month, an Islamic preacher was caught red-handed in Britain preaching for ISIS and jihad, and inciting youths to commit violence against non-Muslims. To everyone's purported astonishment, he was not delivering his lectures on websites. He was delivering sermons live in a public-charity mosque -- funded by taxpayers -- in Stoke-on-Trent. France and Britain remain in the constant grip of Islamist terror, yet their governments, despite having laws prohibiting "hate speech", have so far failed to address the influence that preachers of violence and hatred have with local Muslims.

Governments in Britain and other countries in the grip of terror posed...

Smith II, a US counter-terror analyst who closely monitors Islamic State and the group's claims of responsibility for acts of terror around the globe.US investigators are now sifting through evidence in a fast-moving operation that could reveal the as-yet unclear motives of Paddock.Paddock, a retiree from Mesquite, Nevada, mercilessly killed 59 people and injured more than 500 others from a sniping position inside his 32nd floor Las Vegas hotel room.Police on Tuesday recovered 19 firearms, explosives and several thousand rounds of ammo at Paddock's home in Mesquite.    A police SWAT team earlier found 23 high-powered weapons inside Paddock's Mandalay Bay hotel room.In the hours after Paddock turned his...
