Shortly after President Obama announced a drawdown of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, a group of jihad/martyrdom suicide bombers entered the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul last Tuesday, murdering at least 10 and terrorizing an untold number of others. Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid declared that the jihadists had "gone through several stories of the building and they are breaking into each room and they are targeting the 300 Afghans and foreigners who are staying.”

Here at EuropeNews, we take pride in staying right in the middle of the newsstream, digging out the bits and pieces that matter to the serious newsreader. Our mission is to filter away the sports, entertainment and gossip, and to promote classical, valuable journalism, news that matters
What matters is items with long-term consequences for life in Europe. Out goes short-term speculative financial news, politicians readying for the next election, and whatever accident took place on the autobahn yesterday. What remains are the subtle developments that have lasting impact, like Sharia courts in Britain, the European Union seizing more power in Greece, rising immigrant crime, religious intimidation and the police issuing yet another ”We cannot guarantee your security” statement to citizens seeking to hold peaceful street events.
There are reported to be over 85 sharia law courts operating in the UK today. Although these courts do not have the authority to hand out sentances they do resolve disputes over property, fimances, children and divorce.
