“We are issuing an invitation to all the (Muslim) brothers who are currently living in France to kill any (non-Muslim) civilians there.”

Posing yet another terror threat to the United States.
IB Times Sunni-Shiite tensions escalated in Yemen on Friday when Houthi rebels, who are Shia, clashed with al Qaeda fighters, killing at least 10 people. The clashes between the two Muslim groups signaled the expansion of the sectarian infighting that has ravaged much of the country in the last few weeks.
Tensions have been running high in perpetually unstable Yemen ever since the Houthis, a rebel militia from the Shiite minority, captured the capital Sanaa on Sept. 21. On Oct. 9 more than 45 people were killed in Sanaa when a suicide bomb attack hit supporters of the Houthis. Yemeni officials said the attack, the deadliest since 2012, was launched by Sunni jihadists, affiliated with al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, who are unhappy with the Houthis gaining political power.
The threat of a full-scale civil war increases with each piece of territory that falls to the Houthis. It may not take much to push Yemen over the edge into a sectarian and tribal war that could tear the country apart, leaving behind the shattered remnants of the Yemeni state for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula to thrive in.

IB Times (h/t Susan K) Insurgents in Thailand have torched six schools in one night, leaving thousands of children unable to attend classes. The arsonists tied the hands and feet of school security guards before pouring gasoline around the buildings in Pattani, southern Thailand, deputy governor of Pattani Somphoch Suwannarat was quoted by the Bangkok Post as saying.
No one was injured during the attack, which aimed at destroying public buildings rather than hurting staff or students, officials said. The torching of the schools is believed to have been carried out by Muslim separatists in retaliation to a recent military operation which killed a separatist leader in Pattani’s Panare district. However, no group has claimed responsibility for the incident.
“The Pattani police chief is now surveying the area,” an official in the Thung Yang Deang district told news agency DPA. Another army official said the attacks were carried out simultaneously to attract public attention. (As if the Thais aren’t already more than aware of the death and destruction that Muslim squatters carry out in every non-Muslim country that won’t give them their own Islamic state)
This is not the first time that Muslim insurgents set schools on fire. Last march, two schools in the Sungai Padi district were set ablaze. The worst incident of this type in the area occurred in 1993, when 36 school buildings were torched simultaneously.
It is not clear yet whether new buildings will be built to allow students to attend classes. For now, pupils will have to study in tents. Pattani is one of three provinces in the Muslim-majority southern area of Thailand, which is otherwise predominantly Buddhist.
Nearly 6,000 people have died and 10,000 been injured since the 2004 ethnic separatist insurgency, which has pitted separatist Malay Muslims against Buddhists. The Muslim insurgents demand a level of autonomy from Thailand in the Pattai region, which comprises southern Thai provinces of Pattani, Yala, Narathiwat and parts of Songkhla, and the northern part of Malaysia.
