Germany refuses to deport migrant who planned 4 terrorist attacks – report

An Islamist who served time in a German prison for planning a terrorist attack is allowed to remain in the country after being released, prompting anger from politicians and police authorities.

Mohamed Abu Dhess, a Jordanian-born migrant, was planning to launch attacks in the early 2000s. 

"Everything is already prepared for the wedding, all I need is a bride," he said in one phone call intercepted by Germany's Federal Criminal Police Office. 

The wedding was the planned attack, and the bride was the target.

Dhess was arrested and in 2005 a court found him guilty of planning three bomb attacks on bars in Dusseldorf and on a Jewish community center in Berlin, according to Bild newspaper.

He served six years in prison, and was released. However, Berlin didn't send him back to his home country because he is allegedly in danger of being tortured, according to Bild. In addition, Jordan hasn't provided necessary deportation documents. 

Dhess continued living in Germany, monitored by police and receiving monthly support as an asylum-seeker. 

He was removed from the UN list of people associated with Al-Qaeda in 2015.

Now some German politicians are expressing their anger over this arrangement. 

They believe that keeping Dhess in the country imposes an unnecessary risk on German citizens.

"We must tighten the police laws... so that perpetrators remain in custody for the protection of the population until their deportation, no matter how long it takes. 

Otherwise, the population also carries the entire risk," Rainer Wendt, head of the German Police Union (DPolG), told Bild.

Meanwhile, the vice chairman of the Free Democratic Party of Germany (FDP), Wolfgang Kubicki, said the "abstract possibility of torture" is simply not enough to keep someone like Dhess in the country. 

"There would have to be sufficient certainty that this person would have to expect torture in his home country to refrain from deportation. 

Otherwise, this must not be a reason to let people [stay] in the country, which represents an exorbitant great danger to the community."

But the situation isn't unique to Dhess. In the state of North Rhine-Westphalia alone, 16 jihadists are unable to be deported, according to research conducted by Bild. 

The newspaper also cited an additional two Islamists who cannot be deported from Bavaria.

The topic of terrorism is a particularly sensitive one for Germany, which has seen the number of terrorist attacks committed by migrants rise since 2015. 

One of those took place in December 2016, when a Tunisian asylum-seeker drove a truck into a Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 people. 

A study released in January found that the influx of asylum-seekers into Germany from the 2015 refugee crisis had contributed to a rise in violent crimes in the country.

Armenian protesters block traffic, railways & airport as protest leader loses PM bid

Anti-government protesters disrupted traffic in Armenia’s capital, blocking railways and roads leading to Yerevan International Airport, after the parliament voted against opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan’s bid for interim PM.
Protesters managed to block streets connecting downtown Yerevan to residential districts, disrupting transportation in Armenia’s capital, footage from the scene shows. 
Yerevan’s metro system has also been paralyzed as demonstrators sit on the tracks, preventing trains from passing.
Meanwhile, protesters disrupted traffic on a road leading to Yerevan’s Zvartnots International Airport, located just 12km from the center of the city. 
Consequently, some passengers had to go the rest of the way on foot in order to catch their flights, according to Sputnik news agency.
Railway services have also been disrupted all across the country amid the demonstrations, a spokesman for South Caucasus Railways confirmed to Interfax. 
Some other highways, including the one connecting th…

Strange phenomenon under Africa threatens to flip Earth’s magnetic field

Earth’s magnetic field is decaying at such a rapid rate that scientists think the poles may flip. 
New research shows the most significant weakening is happening under Africa, in an area called the ‘South Atlantic Anomaly.’
As well as giving us our north and south poles, the magnetic field blankets the Earth, protecting it from solar winds and cosmic radiation. 
Without it there would likely be no life on our planet today. 
However, the forcefield has weakened significantly in the past 160 years and scientists have suggested that it could be in the process of flipping. 
Effectively this means a switch in magnetic polarity and would see compasses point south instead of north.
Strangely, this has actually happened several times in the history of the planet, occurring roughly every 200,000 to 300,000 years. 
Approximately 40,000 years ago, it attempted to switch before snapping back into place. 
This NASA illustration captures the enormous disruption to the fields during a reversal:

Professor Stephen Hawking Says Knows What Existed Before The Big Bang

According to the latest comments made by Professor Stephen Hawking, Before the Big Bang, time existed in a bent state that was distorted along another dimension.
The famous theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has an answer to the enigma of what existed before the Big Bang, the beginning of the Universe, 13,800 million years ago.
In an interview with his colleague Neil deGrasse Tyson in the TV show ‘Star Talk‘ broadcasted on the National Geographic Channel, Hawking explained what existed before the universe.
“The boundary condition of the universe…is that it has no boundary,” Hawking said.
According to this theory, the history of the universe is not a flat line but a four-dimensional, curved object, “just as the surface of the Earth, but with two more dimensions,” Hawking said. 
As explained by Professor Hawking, the Big Bang was practically the formation as we today understand as ‘time,’ since this event, 13,800 million years ago, broke the known laws of physics. 
It also means that anyth…
