A large number of current news stories were highlighted, among them:

--The nation of Turkey is about to opena $100 million mosque in Maryland, which will be the largest and most opulant Islamic facility in the western hemisphere. The President of Turkey invited Barack Obama to attend, and he has agreed to participate in the opening of this mosque.

--An ISIS training publication, called the' Mujahid Guide', has been released which tells would-be and newbie terrorists how to navigate' unfamiliar lands ' such as the United States so as to avoid detection and arrest. It tells them how to hide their Muslim faith, how to blend in with their surroundings, how to be 'secret agents', how to raise money through credit card fraud, and how to keep their use of the Internet anonymous so it cannot be tracked. The underlying message is that Muslims currently in the West are ready to rise from their secret ranks and initiate attacks at a moment's notice.
