"Muslims are already under the microscope, and to do this just to gain some cheap publicity is totally unacceptable. There should be no attempt to justify it; they should just apologize and ask people to forgive them for their irresponsible actions" -- CAIR spokesman,  Ibrahim Hooper: "The cache of weapons included hand grenades, ammunition, and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, according to a video uploaded by a media group loyal to the Islamic State group" ... ... but "the Syrian air force has destroyed two of three jets seized and reportedly test flown over Aleppo by the Islamic State group last week, according to the country's information minister", although "militants were able to hide a third jet, which the Syrian air force is now searching for": The men who snatched Abu Issa from the streets of this southeastern city were Turkish gangsters, but their client was the Islamic State, and they had been promised good money to spirit the Syrian rebel commander across the Turkish border into Syria.

They were accused of spreading false news and supporting the Islamist group the Muslim Brotherhood": When they Gulf state visitors were told that it is illegal for women to dress in that fashion in France, the couple left the opera. Afterward, "France's ministry of culture said they are drawing up a new set of rules regarding veils for theatres, museums and other public institutions":
