>>> Oklahoma Beheading Suspect Faces Murder Charges
Oklahoma City -- ****Police filed formal murder charges Monday in the beheading of a woman at a food distribution center in an Oklahoma City suburb...

>>>Another Oklahoma Man, Reportedly a Muslim, Arrested After He Threatened to Cut Off Coworker’s Head
***Another fired Oklahoma City nursing home employee was arrested after a female coworker reported that he threatened to behead her. ...

JERUSALEM, Israel -- If the applause during Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech before the U.N. General Assembly Monday is any measure, he won an Oscar.
Netanyahu said he’d come “to expose the brazen lies spoken from this very podium against my country and against the brave soldiers who defend it.”
Throughout his speech, he warned of the rise of militant Islam, saying “everywhere we look militant Islam is on the march.”
Some felt his address hearkened back to the warnings of England’s Winston Churchill, who warned the world about the totalitarian threat of Hitler’s Nazi fascism. Today, the threat is militant Islam.
“Militant Islam’s ambition is to dominate the world seems mad. But so too did the global ambitions of another fanatic ideology that swept to power eight decades ago. The Nazis believed in a master race. The militant Islamists believe in a master faith,” he said.
“They all seek to create ever expanding enclaves of militant Islam where there is no freedom and no tolerance. Where women are treated as chattel, Christians are decimated and minorities are subjugated, sometimes given the start choice: covert or die,” Netanyahu said.
Among the lies he addressed were war crimes charges by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, the subject of a UN Human Rights Council investigation.
“Ladies and gentlemen, the people of Israel pray for peace, but our hopes and the world’s hopes for peace are in danger because everywhere we look militant Islam is on the march,” he said.
The goal of these Islamists, he said, is world domination. Like a cancer that’s left unchecked, it grows and metastasizes over wider and wider areas. It must be removed, he said, before it’s too late.

>>>King responds to Dona Ana County DA email flap
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The New Mexico Attorney General's office says it's taking over an investigation into the apparent destruction of emails and other electronic records within the Dona Ana County District Attorney's office.

Martinez is a Republican, as is her former chief deputy, Amy Orlando, who replaced Martinez as district attorney when Martinez was elected governor. D'Antonio, a Democrat, beat Orlando in the 2012 election.
