The Syrians had no apparent link to the attackers in Paris, police said. The stolen passports were reportedly Greek.

Defective Takata air bags have injured and killed at least 130 people so far that we know about – and the potential mayhem could involve literally millions of people. Because millions of “defective” air bags (34 million, to be precise) have been installed – per befehl – in cars made by a number of major car brands since the 2004 model year. These cars are in circulation – and probably many more people will be injured and killed before 34 million of these steering wheel Claymores can be defused.

The Crackdown Begins: Europe Just Passed "Strict Controls To Make It Difficult To Acquire Firearms"

And while we are awaiting for a full blown European version of the Patriot Act, we can say that the second part of the forecast just came true, because this morning The European Commission announced it had adopted a package of measures to strengthen control of firearms across the European Union and meant simply to make it "difficult to acquire firearms."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

France already had strict gun control, which is why none of the victims of the "terror" attack could shoot back! But those laws did not prevent the "terrorists" from acquiring military weapons!

Paris attacks: The eight terror suspects named so far are not refugees and all have EU passports

Claims that a surge in the number of refugees entering Europe from Syria has allowed jihadists to sneak into France, Germany and Belgium unchecked and unnoticed have propagated in the days since Friday's Paris terror attacks, in which 129 people were killed and hundreds more were wounded.

A passport found near the remains of a suicide bomber at the Stade de France purporting to belong to a Syrian refugee named Ahmed Almuhamed, 25, gave rise to 'scare' headlines such as 'Paris attacks terrorist suspect rescued near Greece after his refugee boat sunk' and 'Jihadis sneaked into Europe as fake Syrian refugees'.

Still it should be said of the political left, we expect something better. And correctly. We put more trust in those who show a measure of compassion, who denou­nce the hideous social arrangements that make war inevitable and human desire omnipresent; which fosters corporate selfishness, panders to appetites and disorder, waste the earth.

Tennessee GOP leader: Round up Syrian refugees, remove from state

A top Tennessee Republican lawmaker believes the time has come for the National Guard to round up any Syrian refugees who have recently settled in the state and to stop any additional Syrian refugees from entering Tennessee.

"We need to activate the Tennessee National Guard and stop them from coming in to the state by whatever means we can," said House GOP Caucus Chairman Glen Casada, R-Franklin, referencing refugees.

"I’m not worried about what a bureaucrat in D.C. or an unelected judge thinks. ... We need to gather (Syrian refugees) up and politely take them back to the ICE center and say, 'They’re not coming to Tennessee, they’re yours.' "

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That would be an interesting moment: States' National Guard units against the US Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines (which Obama most probably will not hesitate to send in) whose mission will be preventing any further dislocation of Syrian refugees.

I would like to hope that President Obama is cognizant of the reality that there is an election next year; pulling this kind of stunt would not do well for the Democratic Party, particularly in the so-called "swing states".

But I can rather well imagine that other states' lawmakers may well be having the same thoughts as has Mr. Casada.

U.S. Government Moves To Exploit Paris Terror Attacks To Ban Privacy

Last week, the British Prime Minister told Parliament that he wants to “ensure that terrorists do not have a safe space in which to communicate.”

Strong encryption refers to the act of scrambling data in such a way that it cannot be understood by anyone without the correct key or password — even law enforcement with a warrant, or the software manufacturer itself. It’s used in some of the most popular tech products in the world, including the iPhone, WhatsApp messenger, and Facebook.

A highly respected cryptographer and security expert is warning that David Cameron’s proposed ban on strong encryption threatens to “destroy the internet.”

– From the post: Top Computer Security Expert Warns – David Cameron’s Plan to Ban Encryption Would “Destroy the Internet”
You didn’t think the surveillance state would give up that easily did you? Of course not.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All the draconian actions taken by the US government, relative to freedom and communication, and every bit of US government surveillance, did not stop the attack in Paris.

And I would like to remind those in DC that doing more of the same thing, over and over the same way, yet expecting a different outcome, is one of the most classical definitions of insanity.

More attacks in Europe to follow?

US intelligence had not yet confirmed that it was the Islamic State group that claimed responsibility for the attacks. At the same time, the CIA Director added that the attacks in Paris and the crash of the Russian A321 aircraft in Egypt, were signs of the activities of the Islamist group. Noteworthy, Islamic State posted a message on Twitter saying that next targets would be London, Rome and Washington. It appears that the Americans are confused about the fact that the omnipresent NSA and the intelligence network are unable to cope with the terrorist threat. The refusal of the authorities of 24 US states to accept refugees from Syria came as an expression of general uncertainty and lack of confidence to special services. There is another version: Washington did not even think to cope with the terrorist threat. Many analysts suggest that Washington and US allies in the Middle East finance the Islamic State...

Paris attacks: RCMP examines whether voice on ISIS recording is Canadian

The RCMP is examining whether the voice on an audio recording attributed to ISIS and released in the wake of the Paris attacks belongs to a Canadian.

On Monday, CBC News asked three linquistics specialists to analyze the recording, and all concluded the voice, speech patterns and dialect are distinctly Canadian.

“Examining White Privilege: A Retreat for Undergraduate Students Who Self-Identify as White” took place last weekend, November 13-15, and was “specifically for white students.”

According to the university, the self-identifying white students who attend the retreat will come to “recognize and understand white privilege from an individual experience” and have the opportunity to “conceptualize and articulate whiteness from a personal and systematic lense as well as the impact of white privilege on the UVM community and beyond.”

Netanyahu: In wake of Paris attacks, world should condemn attacks against Israel

After the tragic events in Paris on Friday where gunmen affiliated with the Islamic State or ISIS killed 129 people in separate and coordinated attacks, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on world leaders to condemn acts of “terrorism” and “radical Islam” perpetrated by Palestinians, claiming “the terrorists who attack us have the same murderous intent as those in Paris.”

“The time has come for the world to wake up and unite in order to defeat terrorism. The time has come for countries to condemn terrorism against us to the same degree that they condemn terrorism everywhere else in the world,” Netanyahu said at the start of a weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday, further adding Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas should renounce attacks on Israelis over recent weeks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, in Prime Minister Netanyahu's "bizarro world", Israel's actions have done absolutely nothing to incite Palestinians to violence; nothing whatsoever.

I do not know if the man has so lied himself into a corner that he cannot dig his way out, or if he really believes that Israel has zero responsibility for Palestinian anger, which has lead to violence against completely innocent Israelis.

I abhor and condemn violence; but I can understand how it comes about.

The Palestinian people are consistently dealing with serial Israeli genocide against them; they cannot get the materials they desperately need to re-build Gaza, which was brutally destroyed by Operation Protective Edge (in which schools and hospitals were bombed); they can get thrown into jail in selective detention, which can continue indefinitely, even against children, who may be tortured to confess, with no due process whatsoever; many are denied desperately needed medical treatment; homes and crops can be bombed by settlers with impunity (killing those within those homes); and many have had their homes demolished or taken from them on the charge that "proper building permits did not exist", in homes in which Palestinian have lived for generations.

Under these circumstances, I would conclude that the energy toward any kind of rapprochement between Palestinians and the Israeli government has been thoroughly exhausted by the actions of the Israeli government, and this is precisely how the Israeli government wants to see things remain; the Israelis do not want peace, but territory, and by any means necessary.

So I strongly caution Prime Minister Netanyahu that, with all that is going on against the Palestinians, playing the "victim card" here will not get you any real traction in the international court of public opinion.

NYT Editorial Slams “Disgraceful” CIA Exploitation of Paris Attacks, But Submissive Media Role Is Key

A truly superb New York Times editorial this morning mercilessly shames the despicable effort by U.S. government officials to shamelessly exploit the Paris attacks to advance long-standing agendas. Focused on the public campaign of the CIA to manipulate post-Paris public emotions to demonize transparency and privacy and to demand still-greater surveillance powers for themselves, the NYT editors begin:

It’s a wretched yet predictable ritual after each new terrorist attack: Certain politicians and government officials waste no time exploiting the tragedy for their own ends. The remarks on Monday by John Brennan, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, took that to a new and disgraceful low.

Calif. teen sues cop who threw her face-first to the ground hours after she graduated high school

18-year-old Gabbi Lemos was brutally assaulted by a police officer after celebrating her graduation from high school at her home. Hours after the party, Deputy Marcus Holton and six other officers with the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department arrived uninvited at the home and began aggressively interrogating people who were outside.

Before approaching the house, Holton noticed that Gabbi’s sister Karli was sitting in a parked vehicle outside with her boyfriend and he began to question them. At one point during the interrogation, Holton opened Karli’s door and attempted to physically rip her out of the vehicle.

Gabbi’s mother Michelle Lemos then came out and told her to go in the house. Next, according to the lawsuit, Holten “bolted around the family and without a word caught Gabbi from behind the neck in a chokehold, lifting her small body off the ground several feet before throwing her face-first onto the driveway.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

Earlier this morning, as I was just minding my own business reading what appeared to be an uneventful Wall Street Journal article titled, Justice Department Gets Tougher on Corporate Crime, I came across a stunning revelation.

Before getting into it, I should provide a little background. Back in September, I highlighted a document known as the “Yates memo,” referring to a document written by deputy attorney general Sally Yates which promises to target individuals in cases of corporate wrongdoing. This of course made everyone wonder why the Justice Department wasn’t doing so in the first place. Which brings me to the shocking revelation in yesterday’s WSJ article…

The changes to the U.S. Attorney’s manual make clearer the practical impact the shift is expected to have in individual investigations.

The Free Thought Project has been covering the murder of 19-year-old Zachary Hammond by Officer Mark Tiller since the incident occurred on July 26th. Three weeks ago the heartbreaking dashcam video was finally released, which shows a maniacal Tiller ruthlessly take the life of this teenager over a suspected bag of weed.

According to the Post and Courier, “the Hammond case was far from unusual” in South Carolina.

A campus cop at Spartanburg Methodist College shot to death an unarmed college student driving a car—including twice in the head—after responding to a report of a vehicle break-in. Of course, the cop claims that 20-year-old Delvin Simmons was trying to run him over, but there is no bodycam or dashcam video to refute that claim.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

De-escalation, and "walking back" a situation so it does not erupt in violence, do not appear to be tools in Americas' police officers' "tool kit" and this is not just about South Carolina, but about the nation as a whole.

One has to wonder if "the word" has come down from the highest Federal and State authorities that it is OK assassinate unarmed suspects with impunity, because it reinforces the power of The State over the individual.

The other factor, of course, is the IDF training of American police, which makes those police treat American citizens just the way the IDF treats the Palestinians.

A new report from the ACLU of Ohio reveals the majority of jails it examined in Ohio charge prisoners “pay to stay” fees that can reach thousands of dollars. The fees are even levied against the poor, despite state law that’s supposed to prevent it.

Of the 75 jails reviewed by the ACLU, 40 charge a one-time booking fee or a daily fee that can amount to crippling debt for those incarcerated for long periods. The ACLU found the daily fee can be as high as $66.09 a day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Charging prisoners for their own upkeep, which ultimately becomes unpayable debt, is almost a guarantee of recidivism.

What I do not understand is that countries like Sweden are closing a number of their prisons, because they don't have enough prisoners to fill them. Sweden is very big on rehabilitation, and their recidivism rate is no where near what it is in the US. So what is wrong with this picture?!?

According to witness testimony that has been mostly overlooked by the international media, the attackers were described as clean-shaven white men who were driving a brand-new black Mercedes-Benz.

According to the UK’s Mirror, an eyewitness by the name of Mahoud Admo said that he witnessed the initial drive by shooting, and saw the attackers without masks as they passed by in Mercedes-Benz calmly firing machine guns into the crowd.

The fact that Admo was not able to get footage is entirely understandable, but it is certainly odd that with how public of an attack this was that there was not an abundance of cell phone a security camera footage. Even without video evidence, witness reports suggest that the attackers do not meet the stereotypical description of a “terrorist” that is depicted in the media. This was also indicated by the fact that all of the terrorists who were named so far were actually EU citizens.

Now scientists have created a highly potent hybrid of the virus which has since been dubbed “SARS 2.0.” The new strain is very similar to SARS, but is modified to be more contagious for humans. Essentially, it is a mix between a type of SARS that infects mice, and a new form of SARS that was recently found in Chinese horseshoe bats, called “SHC014.” The scientists who created the hybrid wanted to study this emerging virus, since they know it carries the potential to devastate human populations. According to Dr. Ralph Baric of the University of North Carolina, “The strain grew equally well to SARS in human cells,” and “It resisted all vaccines and immunotherapy, too.”

Terrorism: Face the facts or face World War III

Following 9/11, the explanations for terror strikes on the World Trade Center and Pentagon had nothing to do with America’s Middle East policy. No, “America was targeted for attack… because we’re the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity,” declared President George W. Bush. It was the work, he asserted, of “enemies of freedom.”

Now, following the deadly strikes in Paris, the narrative is similar. It had nothing to do with France’s foreign policy, according to Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius. He said the strikes were against French values and French way of life: “What they do not accept is, it is not our actions – it is what we are” and they “don’t accept the fact that we dance.”

Blowback in the Ongoing Age of Empire: Paris and Its Aftermath

Recent attacks apparently orchestrated by ISIS and ISIS affiliated groups in Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria and France have reinvigorated popular debate about terrorism.

This article seeks to redress this glaring omission, and, in so doing, its author dares to utter the bleeding obvious.

On the contrary, it is a deliberate and intended result of specific policies that have at their heart the overthrow of governments unwilling to accede to the Washington agenda, and the subsequent control of natural resource and/or strategic location.

By erecting fences, sealing off external borders, and withholding aid in the wake of Friday's massacre in Paris, the European Union would be embracing death—or the threat of such a fate—as a deterrent to those seeking refuge, rights organizations are warning.

"Giving in to fear in the wake of the atrocious attacks on Paris will not protect anyone," said John Dalhuisen, Europe and Central Asia director at Amnesty International, in a statement accompanying a report released Tuesday by the humanitarian organization.

This is emotional and moral blackmail. Europe has a duty to its citizens first and foremost. It can not afford to take in everyone who wants to live in Europe, nor should it even if it could, as this would irreversibly change the ethnic European nature of the continent and should be considered as nothing less than slow-motion genocide.

After the Paris terror attacks: A drumbeat for military escalation and internal repression

In the days following the horrific terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of 129 innocent civilians in Paris, the response from within the US political establishment and media has been as predictable as it is reactionary. Stoking desires for revenge and exploiting the shock over the attacks claimed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), politicians, pundits and the media are mounting a drumbeat propaganda offensive for an escalation of military aggression abroad and police state repression at home.

Absent any actual information or evidence so far about intelligence failures leading up to the deplorable terrorist attack in Paris, pundits spent the weekend speculating that Edward Snowden and surveillance reform were to blame for the fact that the attack went undetected. Then on Monday, in an epic episode of blame shifting, the CIA director, John Brennan, reportedly said privacy advocateshave undermined the ability of spies to monitor terrorists. He explained:

Here is the alternative: Focus on trade and friendly relations, stop shipping weapons, abandon “regime change” and other manipulations, respect national sovereignty, and maintain a strong defense at home including protecting the borders from those who may seek to do us harm.

Education Disaster : Government Schools Are a Catastrophe

The 2015 National Assessment of Educational Progress report, also known as The Nation’s Report Card, shows that U.S. educational achievement, to put it nicely, leaves much to be desired. -- When it comes to reading and math skills, just 34 percent and 33 percent, respectively, of U.S. eighth-grade students tested proficient or above — that is, performed at grade level or above. Recent test scores show poor achievement levels in other academic areas. Only 18 percent of eighth-graders are proficient in U.S. history. It’s 27 percent in geography and 23 percent in civics.

Now police sources in France have confirmed the Syrian passports found in the wake of the Paris attacks are indeed fake.

Another France’s False Flag Attack

The French were shocked one more time by terrorist attacks last Friday November 13. The attacks carry all the fingerprints of false flag attacks that had been witnessed in previous false flag attacks in the American 9/11, UK 7/7 and France January 2015 Charlie Hebdo attacks. The victims were innocent civilians, the perpetrators were immediately proclaimed before any investigations, the terrorists were killed and silenced, passports identifying the nationality of the terrorists were found (implanted) next to their bodies, the government had a security exercise simulating similar terrorist attacks, and a declaration of war was announced by the head of the state.

Israeli professor accused of equating the slaughter of Palestinian civilians by Israel to "mowing the grass"

The 'Northeastern University Students for Justice in Palestine' has issued an e-mail alert inviting folks to 'PACK THE ROOM' Wednesday night for a speech given by Israeli Professor Efraim Inbar. Their press release stated, in part, "In giving this talk, Inbar equates the slaughter of Palestinian civilians committed by Israel in its brutal attacks on Gaza to an act of "mowing the grass". Under international law, Israel has an obligation as an occupying power to the population as it occupies. To refer to Palestinians as "grass" to be mowed is genocidal language referring to war crimes regularly committed against the Palestinian people. As concerned students and community members, we will not tolerate this unacceptable justification for the murder of Palestinian lives on our own campus...

Russia Says Bomb Downed Plane in Egypt and Intensifies Attacks on ISIS

Russia said for the first time on Tuesday that a bomb aboard a Russian charter jet full of vacationers caused the aircraft’s destruction more than two weeks ago over Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, and the Kremlin responded immediately by escalating airstrikes across Syria.

The Russians said they were coordinating their military campaign with France in sharply ratcheting up attacks on Syrian territory, especially areas held by the Islamic State, the militant group that has asserted responsibility for destroying the Russian jetliner and for the spree of deadly attacks across Paris on Friday.

Tunisia Foils Terror Attack after Discovering ISIL Cell

Tunisian intelligence has dismantled an ISIL cell, avoiding a major terror attack planned on hotels and against security forces. Seventeen ISIL terrorists were arrested, many of whom were trained in Syria and Libya, Reuters reported. "We have foiled a major attack this month that the terrorist cell was preparing against vital installations, hotels, security centers and against politicians to bring chaos to the country," Interior Ministry Security Chief Rafik Chelli said. Tunisia suffered two major terror attacks this year, both of which were claimed by ISIL. Gunmen killed 21 tourists in an attack at the Bardo Museum in Tunis in March. Later in June, a gunman shot and killed 38 foreigners at a beach hotel in Sousse.

BEX Alert!!! - "North Carolina lawmakers align with French people"

North Carolina lawmakers also were commenting as events were unfolding, with Rep. Virginia Foxx and senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis issuing simple tweets about the tragedies that would leave more than 120 people dead.

“Praying for the people of Paris,” Foxx wrote.

Similarly, “Praying for the people of Paris. America stands with France,” tweeted Tillis.

“Praying for those affected by #Paris attacks. Know that America is standing with you,” offered Burr.

The series of coordinated terrorist attacks across Paris, for which the Islamic State is claiming responsibility as reported by multiple news agencies, began about 8:30 p.m. Nov. 13 when two explosions were heard near the Stade de France, where French President Francois Hollande was watching a sporting matchup between France and Germany.

To France from a Post-9/11 America: Lessons We Learned Too Late

the terrorists in our government won on 9/11 and in all the years since

Nov 17 11:09


No outside force can end freedom in America. The only force that can end freedom in America, is the American government itself. This is the main lesson of the 15 years since 9/11.

The notion that we must preemptively give up our freedoms to protect our freedoms is so remarkably infantile and irrational you’d think almost no one would fall for it. Yet fall for it they do.

On the other hand if you are a serious person and want to examine where the real threat to American freedom and liberty resides, look no further than Washington D.C..

From Foreign Policy:

CIA Director John Brennan said Monday he suspects the Islamic State is currently working on more terrorist plots against the West following Friday’s attack in Paris that killed at least 129 people and injured hundreds more. He also criticized new privacy protections enacted after Edward Snowden’s disclosures about U.S. government surveillance practices.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Giving up yet more rights, and acquiescing to yet more surveillance will not make the American people any more safe.

The one thing this government could do, to enhance the safety and security of Americans at home or abroad, would be to stop mucking about in other peoples' countries, enabling corporations to expropriate resources to which they have absolutely no moral right.

Of course, this..... would be logical.

51 arrested in protests after black man shot by Minneapolis police

Hundreds of protesters shut down northbound Interstate 94 through Minneapolis Monday night reacting to the shooting of a black man by Minneapolis police. In all, 51 people were arrested.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation reports protesters were on the freeway, attempting to block traffic. The shutdown first started around 7 p.m.

Several area metro police departments were on scene attempting to control the situation. According to the Minnesota State Patrol, protesters were given four warnings to disperse or be subject to arrest.

Shortly before 9 p.m., authorities began arresting protesters. The state patrol later said 43 adults and eight juveniles were arrested and will be charged with unlawful assembly and pedestrian on freeway, both misdemeanors.

The state patrol says numerous cars were damaged in the protest. At least on trooper was punched by a protester, and that person fled the scene.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if police, nation-wide, have been given their marching orders to create such flagrant incidents with these shootings, ultimately to create the kinds of riots which would result in the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the imposition of martial law.

Or, possibly, if the IDF training given to so many police around the country, has made police look at all citizens, charged or not, as the IDF views Palestinians.

The UK Prime Minister has seized on the tragic deaths and injuries in Paris as an excuse to terroise Britons into allowing him to pass hisSnoopers Charter, a sweeping, badly written surveillance bill that willend security research in the UK, cause Internet bills to soar, and riddle critical software with back-doors, threatening anyone who reveals these vulnerabilities, even in court, with a year in prison.

It's a disgusting, cynical move that uses innocents' blood as the missing ingredient for achieving policy goals that could not be attained through democratic debate. Just as the Patriot Act's hasty, ill-considered provisions were rammed through in the smoke of the World Trade Center, Cameron would trump evidence, expert advice and good sense with partisan grandstanding.

It's the shock doctrine in action. Britain deserves better. Cameron should be ashamed to use terrorists' crimes to advance his own agenda.

What I Discovered From Interviewing Imprisoned ISIS Fighters

These boys came of age under the disastrous American occupation after 2003, in the chaotic and violent Arab part of Iraq, ruled by the viciously sectarian Shia government of Nouri al-Maliki. Growing up Sunni Arab was no fun. A later interviewee described his life growing up under American occupation: He couldn’t go out, he didn’t have a life, and he specifically mentioned that he didn’t have girlfriends. An Islamic State fighter’s biggest resentment was the lack of an adolescence. Another of the interviewees was displaced at the critical age of 13, when his family fled to Kirkuk from Diyala province at the height of Iraq’s sectarian civil war. They are children of the occupation, many with missing fathers at crucial periods (through jail, death from execution, or fighting in the insurgency), filled with rage against America and their own government.

Spain issues arrest warrant for Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu over deadly 2010 flotilla raid

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other top government officials could be detained if they step foot in Spain after a judge there issued an arrest warrant stemming from a deadly 2010 Gaza flotilla raid, but Israel is dismissing the move as a “provocation.”
Israel’s navy was able to stop several of the ships without incident, but its commandos were attacked when boarding the Mavi Marmara, leaving 10 activists dead in an ensuing gun battle.

BEX Alert!!! - "What Americans Thought of Jewish Refugees Fleeing Nazi Europe"

These declarations and actions, which closely mirror similar posturing and financial commitments enacted by western powers leading up to World War II, are only part of the eerie similarity with the state of the world in the late 1930s. Millions of refugees pouring out of Syria are being greeted by closed borders and xenophobia, similar to that which Jewish refugees faced while attempting to flee Germany and Poland before the advent of the Holocaust in Nazi-controlled western Europe.

A series of tweets released on Monday by Historical Opinion, which curates public opinion surveys from the past, is a grim reminder of how quickly public sentiment can be swayed to abandon those displaced by war. Originally published in Fortune magazine in 1938, the surveys show that fewer than 5% of those polled wanted America to accept more European refugees fleeing a fast rising tide of fascism, the vast majority of which were Jewish.

Police in Serbia arrest migrant carrying the SAME passport as that found close to Stade de France suicide bomber… fuelling speculation ISIS are using forgeries to fool investigators

A migrant has been arrested carrying an identical Syrian passport to one found on the body of a Paris suicide bomber, it was revealed today.

Serbian police say the document in the name of Ahmad Almohammad, 25, was the same as one found on a ISIS corpse outside the Stade de France.

It had the same date of birth and place of birth but the only difference was the photograph and it is thought that both passports are fakes made by the same forger.

Serbian newspaper Blic said the holder of the second passport was arrested at a refugee camp in Presevo on Saturday and held for questioning.
