National Action had earlier glorified the killing of Jo Cox, the British Labour Party member of parliament, by white supremacist Thomas Mair, as the court described Cox's murder as a terrorism offence.The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a civil rights group based in the U. state of Alabama, said on its website that it had obtained records showing Mair had links to the National Alliance dating back to 1999.Over the course of two decades, from the end of the Second World War to Rhodesia’s unilateral declaration of independence, the alliance with Great Britain lost its central role as the ultimate guarantor of national independence and colonial integrity for Portugal.This period witnessed the rise of the United States of America as both superpower and leader of the Western world, a development which Portugal’s dictatorial Prime Minister, António de Oliveira Salazar, did not always accept with good grace; the invasion of Portuguese India, in December 1961, which shook Portuguese trust in British diplomacy and guarantees of military collaboration; and the start of Portugal’s colonial wars in Africa, which drove Lisbon and London, the later now committed to decolonization, further apart.About 40 neo-Nazis were put under investigation by police in Britain amid fears that they are plotting terrorist attacks against Muslims around the country, the Sunday Times reported.The neo-Nazi group reportedly operates in far-right hotspots where they are planning atrocities, predominantly in Yorkshire, Leeds, Dewsbury and Batley, police intelligence sources reported."ISIS is the greatest threat to regional stability and it is critical that all parties operating in Syria remain focused on what is most important -- the annihilation of ISIS," Major Adrian J.
