Israelis Warned to Avoid 39 Countries

Israel’s Counter Terrorism Bureau is warning to Israelis to stay away from 39 countries, which shows the extent of the potential terrorist threat against Westerners around the world.

In its spring travel warnings, the bureau said recent terrorist attacks by Islamic militants in Belgium, Canada, Australia, France, and Denmark raise concerns about further attacks against Western targets, including Israeli and Jewish targets.

The attacks could come from veterans of the fighting in Syria and Iraq who are affiliated with global jihad, including Islamic State, and from local elements inspired by the terrorist organizations, the bureau stated.

It is illegal for Israelis to travel to Syria, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Yemen, and Saudi Arabia. The bureau warned Israelis to also avoid visits to Afghanistan, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Burkina-Faso, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Malaysia, Mali, Mauritania, Pakistan, and Togo, due to concrete threats. Any Israelis in those countries were advised to leave immediately, the Jewish Daily Forward reported.

“The global terrorist campaign by Iran and Hezbollah continues to threaten Israeli and Jewish targets around the world, especially tourists and Jewish symbols (rabbis, community leaders, Chabad houses),” the bureau stated.

The bureau also said there are high concrete threats regarding travel to Algeria, Djibouti, and Tunisia, and basic concrete threats regarding travel to Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.

The warnings were issued ahead of the spring holidays in Israel, including Passover and Independence Day, when many Israelis travel abroad. The warnings are based on “solid and reliable information, which reflect tangible threats, and which are based on the intelligence picture for the given period,” the bureau said.

There are continuing potential threats regarding travel to Azerbaijan, Turkey, Morocco, Oman, Kenya, and Nigeria, according to the bureau, which recommends that Israelis avoid non-essential visits to these countries.

Israel’s bureau also pointed to threats in southern Thailand, the southern Philippines island of Mindanao, Chechnya, the northern India state of Jammu and Kashmir, eastern Senegal, and northern Nigeria.

 

It’s getting difficult to trust our own people who we hire and train to protect us!!

First is this:

British double agent ‘plotted to kill his MI5 handler and attack UK’ after infiltrating jihadist group in Syria

An MI5 agent was allegedly recruited by a terrorist mastermind in Syria and sent back to Britain in a plot to launch a devastating attack against his handlers.

The agent was recruited by MI5 as an undercover informant within the radical Islamic community and he then travelled to Syria where he became part of a jihadist group.

But he apparently double-crossed his British handlers and returned to London with plans to launch an ‘insider attack’ in the capital.

The Mail on Sunday has been aware of the alleged plot for more than a year but agreed to previous requests from the security services not to publish the story for ‘national security’ reasons.

Parts of the plot were reported in a story in The Mail on Sunday last year, in which we revealed that the jihadist, who has a British passport, had plans to attack Central London and that David Cameron had been briefed about the details.

This newspaper is aware of the man’s identity and further details of the investigation but are not printing them for legal reasons.

A long undercover operation was run by MI5 to try to identify linked individuals who might be travelling back from Syria to launch similar attacks but this investigation has now concluded, meaning we can now report the fact that he was a potential ‘double agent’.

The revelations come as the terror threat in the UK continues to be ‘severe’ but as MI5 faces difficult questions about its tactic of recruiting agents who are known Islamic extremists.

Supporters of Mohammed Emwazi, the Islamic State executioner known as Jihadi John, have claimed that MI5 harassed him and similar allegations have been made by the family of Michael Adebolajo, one of the killers of Fusilier Lee Rigby.

The security services refuse to answer such questions because they stick by a strict policy to ‘neither confirm nor deny’ whether individuals have been approached or recruited – a policy they stick to even after suspects have been accused of serious crimes.

However, The Mail on Sunday can disclose that the man worked for MI5 for a period before he decided to travel abroad in 2012.

Investigators believe he met a terrorist mastermind with designs on attacking the West who encouraged him to plan an attack.

Back in Britain, information suggested he began plotting to attack the MI5 handlers who had recruited him and set about trying to buy automatic weapons in this country or abroad. The alleged ‘double agent’ was apparently planning to use the firearms to stage a murderous attack on the public in an echo of the Kenyan shopping mall massacre last year, sources said.

He remained in contact with his jihadi controller, a terrorist mastermind who is thought to have established links to Britain.

The agent also joined up with another extremist and they approached two other men for help in obtaining the equipment, but these other men did not agree to help them.

MI5 were sufficiently concerned by an intercepted communication they received that they launched an emergency operation to apprehend the man. Scotland Yard’s firearms unit was sent to Central London when investigations suggested he was close to launching his attack.

The man was detained for questioning and remains in custody. However, no firearms were discovered linking him to a plot and it appears the security services’ fears of an imminent attack were unfounded.

There has been growing concern from within the security services that there could be ‘blow-back’ from the conflict in Syria, where hundreds of young Britons have joined the fighting.

Eleven months after the agent was allegedly planning his attack, police and MI5 rounded up another cell linked to IS also allegedly planning a gun attack in Central London. Five men are currently awaiting trial.

Some details of how MI5 go about recruitment have been released in recent months as part of an investigation by the parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee. They often approach individuals they are investigating in order to try to recruit them as agents, known as Covert Human Intelligence Sources.

They then assess them on their suitability, their access to intelligence, personal qualities and their motivation for working with MI5.

Recruiting a target is seen as a ‘positive outcome’ as it means they have reduced the risk, gained increased ‘visibility’ of their activity and have a new source of intelligence.

And we have this:

Islamic State In Illinois Planned Another Ft. Hood

The text read: “We are in your state, we are in your cities, we are in your streets, you are our goals anywhere.”

It adds the hashtag #AmessagefromISIStoUS.

edmonds-cousins As the arrest of the cousins from Aurora, Ill., shows, they are also wearing our National Guard uniforms.

We are reminded of the case of Abdirahmaan Muhumed. Before he went to Syria to fight and die for the Islamic State, he worked at Delta Global Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Air Lines, at the airport in Minneapolis. His job was to clean aircraft, and he had a security clearance that gave him unfettered access to the tarmac and passenger jets.

The Islamic State is indeed already walking our streets. “We have active investigations of people in various stages of radicalizing in all 50 states,” FBI Director James Comey told the National Association of Attorneys General recently.

Unfortunately, unless the Islamic State starts showing up on our golf courses, President Obama may not seriously recognize or admit that Islamic terrorism has already reached our shores and is an increasingly dangerous threat.

Give Muslims self-rule or count body bags: Aquino

Wherever Islam goes, so goes violence.

MANILA: Philippine President Benigno Aquino called on lawmakers on Friday to pass a bill endorsing a pact aimed at ending a decades-long Muslim separatist rebellion, warning them they would otherwise start counting “body bags”.

coexist1Aquino had wanted the bill, which would give autonomy to the majority Catholic nation’s Muslim minority in the south, passed this month.

But Congress suspended debates on the proposed law in the face of public outrage over the killings of 44 police commandoes by Muslim guerillas in a botched anti-terror raid in January.

The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), which signed a peace deal a year ago on Friday, had said its members fired in self-defence at the commandos, who passed through a rebel camp while going after Islamic militants.

“This is the crossroads we face: we take pains to forge peace today, or we count body bags tomorrow,” Aquino said in a nationwide television address.

“Perhaps it is easy for you to push for all-out war,” he said, hitting out at critics who have condemned the peace deal with the MILF.

“But if the conflict grows, the number of Filipinos shooting at other Filipinos will grow, and it would not be out of the question that a friend or loved one be one of the people who will end up inside a body bag.” The rebellion for a separate state or self-rule has claimed nearly 120,000 lives and cost billions of dollars in economic losses, according to government estimates. Under a peace deal signed with the MILF, the 10,000-member group pledged to disarm while the Philippine government vowed to pass an autonomy law in Muslim areas of the south.

“The Bangsamoro basic law is one of the most important proposed bills of our administration. It answers the two most pressing problems of our countrymen: poverty and violence,” Aquino said on Friday.

Poll Shows Palestinians Hope for Intifada, Rocket Attacks

A poll shows that over two thirds of Palestinians – 68% – support rocket attacks by Hamas against Israeli civilian targets.

  TEMP 3-27 A new survey of Palestinian attitudes show that the vast majority harbor exceedingly violent feelings against Israeli Jews.

The Palestinian Research Institute poll shows that over two thirds of Palestinians – 68% – support rocket attacks by Hamas against Israeli civilian targets.

When asked how the Palestinian “resistance” movement should be handled, only 30% responded that non-violence was the appropriate way.

The poll results were published Thursday in the Yisrael Hayom newspaper.

Although the Palestinian Authority supports the “two state solution – the surrender of Judea and Samaria to the PA for the establishment of an Arab state – the feelings of PA residents on the matter are more complicated.

Only 51% of them are in favor of that solution, while 49% said they were opposed. Thirty seven percent said that an armed struggle to “rid the land of the Jews” was the best solution, but that was down from 42% in the last poll, three months ago.

Fifty six percent favor a Hamas-style invasion of Israel via tunnels and rockets from Judea and Samaria, while 58% said they were ready for another intifada, compared to 56% three months ago.

Before Operation Protective Edge in the summer, 41% said that an intifada was necessary.

According to the poll, only 51% of Palestinians believe that Hamas “won” Operation Protective Edge, the summer war Israel waged on the Gaza terror group. Three months ago, 66% agreed with that sentiment.

Overall, sixty two percent said they were “dissatisfied” with the results of the war.

Palestinian rockets killed Gaza civilians during war: Amnesty

Good article and very informative. It would be wonderful if the people of the world read this and opened their eyes to HAMAS savagery. But unfortunately its going to end here, and we’ll hear nothing more about this. -BBJ

Jerusalem: In a damning report released today, Amnesty International said Palestinian rocket fire during the 2014 summer war in Gaza had killed more civilians inside the Gaza Strip than inside Israel.

  temp9-29Such deadly attacks on civilians were against international law and constituted “a war crime,” it said.

It urged Palestinian armed groups to end all direct attacks on Israeli civilians and ensure everything was done to also protect Palestinian civilians inside Gaza from the effects of those attacks.

The 50-day war claimed the lives of some 2,200 people in Gaza, most of them civilians, and 73 on the Israeli side, most of them soldiers.

The report said rocket attacks had killed six civilians inside Israel, including a child, but that other rockets aimed at the Jewish state had fallen short inside Gaza, killing at least 13 civilians, 11 of them children.

It referred to one particular incident on July 28 in which 13 people were killed in deadly blast inside the beachside Shati refugee camp in Gaza City.

At the time, Palestinian witnesses blamed the attack on an Israeli F-16 warplane, but the army denied firing on the camp, accusing militants of misfiring their own rockets.

“In the deadliest incident believed to have been caused by a Palestinian armed group during the conflict, 13 Palestinian civilians — 11 of them children — were killed when a projectile exploded next to a supermarket in the crowded al-Shati refugee camp,” the report said.

Contrary to Palestinian claims that Israel was responsible, “an independent munitions expert who examined the available evidence on behalf of Amnesty International concluded that the projectile used in the attack was a Palestinian rocket,” it said.

Figures released by the Israeli army just days after the war ended on August 26 showed that Gaza militants fired 4,591 projectiles at Israel.

Of that number, 3,659 struck Israeli territory and 735 were intercepted by the Iron Dome air defence system, leaving another 197 which fell short and landed inside the coastal enclave.

Militant groups used unguided projectiles which were “inherently indiscriminate,” it said: “Using such weapons is prohibited under international law and their use constitutes a war crime.”

“In launching these attacks, they displayed a flagrant disregard for international humanitarian law and for the consequences of their violations on civilians in both Israel and the Gaza Strip,” said Philip Luther, director of the Middle East and North Africa programme at Amnesty International

 Pakistan says it will respond to any threat to Saudi Arabia

Maybe we can send some muslims from America to go an volunteer?  -BBJ

  savage Pakiman1ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s office said on Thursday any threat to Saudi Arabia would “evoke a strong response” from Islamabad.

Sharif chaired a “high-level meeting” in which he said Pakistan enjoyed close and brotherly relations with Saudi Arabia and other Gulf Cooperation Council countries.

Saudi Arabia and Gulf allies launched military operations including air strikes in Yemen on Thursday, Saudi officials said, to counter Iran-allied forces besieging the southern city of Aden, where the U.S.-supported Yemeni president had taken refuge.

“The meeting concluded that any threat to Saudi Arabia’s territorial integrity would evoke a strong response from Pakistan,” Sharif’s office said.

Pakistan would send a delegation, including military officials, to Saudi Arabia on Friday, the statement said.

Pakistan was considering a request from Saudi Arabia for troops to send to Yemen, the foreign office said on Thursday.

Cornell dean says ISIS welcome on campus in undercover video

Many Thanks to Marilyn and Jane of ACT  4 America!!

This guy is either the dumbest Ivy League bigwig ever or politically correct to a fault — for welcoming offers to bring ISIS and Hamas to Cornell University.

A video sting operation shows Cornell’s assistant dean for students, Joseph Scaffido, agreeing to everything suggested by an undercover muckraker posing as a Moroccan student.

Scaffido casually endorses inviting an ISIS “freedom fighter’’ to conduct a “training camp” for students at the upstate Ithaca campus — bizarrely likening the activity to a sports camp.

(ISIS are not “Freedom fighters” they are savage Islamic terrorists. Blood thirsty SAVAGES!!)

Is it OK to bring a humanitarian pro-“Islamic State Iraq and Syria” group on campus, the undercover for conservative activist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas asks.

Sure, Scaffido says in the recorded March 16 meeting.

Scaffido doesn’t even blink an eye when the undercover asks about providing material support for terrorists — “care packages, whether it be food, water, electronics.”

How about supporting Hamas?

(Supporting European and US designated Terrorist organizations is against Federal Law.  ISIS is a designated terrorist organization. HAMAS was , but Ali Bama took them off the list.)

No problem at all, Scaffido said.

“The university is not going to look at different groups and say, ‘You’re not allowed to support that group because we don’t believe them’ or something like that. I think it’s just the opposite. I think the university wants the entire community to understand what’s going on in all parts of the world,” Scaffido said.

The undercover asked if he can invite “a freedom fighter to come and do like a training camp for students.”

Scaffido responds, “You would be allowed to do something like that. It’s just like bringing in a coach, to do a training, a sports trainer or something,” the Cornell official said.

The State Department includes both ISIS and Hamas on its list of terrorist organizations.

Cornell brass responded to a Post inquiry made to Scaffido.

“Cornell fully supports the free exchange of ideas and does not review or control the political ideology of our students. We do not, of course, tolerate unlawful advocacy of violence, and the comment about training by ISIS freedom fighters does not reflect university policy,” said Joel Malina, Cornell’s vice president for university relations.

Bergdahl charged with desertion

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was captured by the Taliban after abandoning his post in Afghanistan and then freed five years later in a controversial trade for five Guantanamo detainees, was charged Wednesday with desertion.

U.S. Army Forces Command announced the decision at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.

The development comes 10 months after his May 2014 release — which initially was a joyous occasion, with his parents joining President Obama in celebrating the news in the Rose Garden. Bob Bergdahl, who had studied Islam during his son’s captivity, appeared with a full beard and read a Muslim prayer, while Bergdahl’s mother Jani embraced the president.

But that euphoria quickly gave way to controversy in Washington as Bergdahl was accused of walking away from his post and putting his fellow soldiers in danger. The trade of hardened Taliban fighters for his freedom raised deep concerns on Capitol Hill that the administration struck an unbalanced and possibly illegal deal.

Bergdahl was specifically charged Wednesday with desertion and misbehavior toward the enemy. The charges carry a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Free Speech on Trial in U.S. District Court As AFDI Fights for the Right to Tell the Truth

photo(10)

Today my ace lawyer David Yerushalmi of the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) argued before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on our motion for a preliminary junction, asking the court to enter an order requiring New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to run our AFDI “Killing Jews is Worship that brings us closer to Allah” anti-Hamas, anti-jihad ad on MTA buses.

I was there, and let me tell you, the foes of free speech made some telling and fascinating admissions.

Jeff Rosen, the Director of Real Estate for the MTA — that is, the guy who decides what ads to take and what ads not to take — admitted that he had no knowledge of First Amendment issues. So when he rejected our ad, he was making these decisions not with any awareness of our First Amendment rights, and not with an understanding of the legal implications of what he was doing, but capriciously.

Rosen and the MTA had rejected this ad, they have said, because they were afraid that it would lead to violence from Muslims who would mistake it for a pro-Hamas ad. (What??) That’s absurd enough on its face. But in his testimony today, Rosen contradicted the previous declaration he had submitted to the court. The MTA acknowledges that this same ad ran in Chicago and San Francisco without incident.

It’s clear that they chose to challenge this ad out of all of our ads in order to establish that it constituted a true threat, or incitement, or fighting words — all legal grounds to keep from running it. They picked this particular ad hoping that they would get the ruling they wanted and establish a precedent against all of our ads, even though their discriminatory policies against our ads are purely content-driven and hence unconstitutional.

Geller Yerushalmi2

They tried to make the rejection of this ad a security issue. But not only did it run in Chicago and San Francisco without incident, but also, the NYPD refused to submit to the MTA any security concerns about this ad, which speaks volumes. This proves that there was no security concern. And the San Francisco transit authority, which clearly despises our ads, stated most emphatically that it had “absolutely no problem whatsoever” when the ad ran — despite the cajoling, the nudging, the leading of the witness by Raymond Diaz, the director of security.

David Yerushalmi argued brilliantly, asking the court to enjoin the MTA’s speech restriction on First Amendment grounds. And we will win. If we don’t, it isn’t just us who lose — it’s anyone who values the freedom of speech.

Supporters of Freedom of Speech, Democracy, Individualism and Womens Rights around the world. We are against Radical Islam and the terror it brings.
