We’re approaching the 6th anniversary of the Madrid Train bombings.

Madrid Train Bombings:

In Madrid, Spain on 11 March 2004 ten explosions, packed into 13 rucksacks and detonated by cell phones, occured on four commuter trains at the height of rush hour killing 191 civilians and injuring over 1,800. Police also carried out a controlled demolition of 3 other explosive devices.(snip)

It was the deadliest attack on European civilians since the Lockerbie bombing of 1988. To date more than 70 men have been arrested in the bombing.

Great suggestion, thanks.

Son of Hamas founder turned on militants

Mosab Yousef, the son of the founder of the Hamas militant group, said he was a spy for Israel because he thinks Hamas “killed people for no reason.”.....

By Animesh Roul

SNIPPET: “I wish to flag the latest Crisis Group report on the threat emanating from the Jamaat-ul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) which remains active and dangerous despite continuous government crackdowns. Undoubtedly a well researched report titled “The Threat from Jamaat-ul Mujahideen Bangladesh” (Crisis Group Asia Report No. 187, 1 March 2010), assesses the ongoing danger JMB poses to the state and possibly to the region.”

Taliban free speech
By Bill RoggioMarch 3, 2010 2:09 PM

voice-of-jihad.JPG

Were you aware that the Taliban are staunch defenders of freedom of speech and the press? Don’t believe, me just read the Taliban’s latest statement on the Afghan government’s proposed restrictions on press coverage of Taliban attacks. The statement, originally published at The Voice of Jihad, the Taliban’s website, and reprinted below, is a curious mix of concern over the erosion of civil liberties and press freedoms that could have been written by a panel of members of the American Civil Liberty Union and Reporters Without Frontiers, and the standard Taliban frothing at the mouth over “puppets” and “occupiers.”

Paris: ‘Baghdad ring’ on trial

[end of article]

Prosecutors believe 1,000 illegal migrants paid members of the “Baghdad ring” between early 2007 and mid-2008 to reach northern Europe.

Police from 10 European countries in June arrested 105 people as part of an operation to dismantle the trafficking ring. Investigators had said the raids marked the biggest joint operation against illegal immigration staged by the European Union.

Doubts are raised about fault lines near Diablo Canyon, up for license renewal
By David Sneed
San Luis Obispo Tribune
Published: Thursday, Mar. 04, 2010

Concerns about earthquakes again dominated federal hearings held Wednesday in San Luis Obispo to discuss extending the operating life of Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant by an additional 20 years.

However, numerous speakers said they are nervous about a newly discovered fault just offshore of the plant — the Shoreline Fault. It magnifies concerns they already had about another fault, the Hosgri, which is further offshore.

Singapore warns of terror threat in Malacca Strait

SINGAPORE – Singapore’s Navy warned that a terrorist group is planning attacks on oil tankers in the Malacca Straits, one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes.

snipped.

“The terrorists’ intent is probably to achieve widespread publicity and showcase that it remains a viable group,” the Navy advisory said. “However, this information does not preclude possible attacks on other large vessels with dangerous cargo.”

The Navy did not say which terrorist group is planning the attacks. Spokesmen at the Defense Ministry and the Information Fusion Centre were not immediately available for comment.

Palestinian Authority: Direct the Heat Toward Israel

To distract attention from charges of financial corruption and embarrassing sexual scandals, the Palestinian leadership in the West Bank has stepped up its anti-Israel rhetoric. Allegations of “ethnic cleansing,” “destruction and desecration of Islamic religious sites,” “apartheid,” “racism,” “land theft” and “conducting medical experiments on Palestinian prisoners” are directed every day toward Israel by Abbas and his top officials and spokesmen.

These charges are often backed up by threats to launch a “third intifada” or to resume suicide bombings against Israel.

Thanks - very happy to see this new thread!

I found another lack of prosecution for people threatening either Jews/airlines or both.

Mansor Mohammad Asad made international news in January after being pulled off of a Detroit-bound flight at Miami International Airport for yelling, “I want to kill all the Jews.” Thursday, Asad was given a three years probation and was barred from public transportation for the incident.

Perhaps anther dry run

Royal Air Force (RAF) officials were forced to send two of their Typhoon jets to assist an American Airlines flight this week, after a female passenger attempted to gain access to the flight deck.

The incident took place on flight AA078, which was making its way to London’s Heathrow airport from Dallas-Fort Worth, with approximately 160 passengers and 12 crew members.

Metropolitan Police arrested the woman shortly after the plane landed, but later claimed that she had not imposed a terror threat to the Boeing 767-300.

Wondering how trying to enter the flight deck does not impose a threat?

Police are questioning a British Airways worker about terrorist fundraising, it emerged today.

The 30-year-old man was arrested at one of the company’s offices in Newcastle on Thursday. He is being held at a central London police station after detectives were granted more time to question him at a court hearing on Saturday.

A spokesman for British Airways confirmed the arrest. “We take matters relating to security extremely seriously and as a responsible company always co-operate fully with the police,” he said.

The Sun reported that the man worked in one of BA’s call centres, taking passenger bookings. Scotland Yard said searches were carried out at one of the company’s offices.

Special Report February 28, 2010

At the time of Israel’s bombardment of the Syrian-Iranian plutonium plant under construction in northern Syria on September 2007, 45 tons of North Korean yellowcake, enough for several nuclear bombs, was on its way to the plant, Japanese intelligence sources have revealed.

snip

Two years later, in the summer of 2009, that same yellowcake consignment was secretly reshipped to Iran, attesting to the integral nuclear partnership between Tehran and Damascus.

So, even without 1,950 kilo- stock of enriched uranium Iran has produced at Natanz, the Islamic Republic has piled up enough material to make three or five bombs or warheads. Revelation of the North Korean delivery suggests Tehran may have more secret enriched uranium hoards, probably from black market sources, such as Central Asia.

The New York Times Sunday, Feb. 28, reported that IAEA inspectors were taken by surprise two weeks ago when Iran moved almost its entire fuel stockpile in Natanz above ground.

Tons of explosives stolen

An armed group hijacked a tractor-trailer truck transporting 18 tons of explosives on the Monterrey-Saltillo highway near Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. The truck’s two operators were abducted and are missing. Only the truck’s tractor has been located by the federal agents where it was abandoned near Saltillo, the capital city of neighboring Coahuila. The missing cargo of explosives, used in mining operations, was originally destined for Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas.

Iran could place a short-range ballistic missile on one of the thousands of commercial freighters sailing in the Pacific and detonate a warhead high above U.S. territory that could take down 75 percent of our nation’s electrical grid. As Heritage fellow Baker Spring explains such a Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack would “cause a cascade of failures throughout the broader infrastructure, including banking systems, energy systems, transportation systems, food production and delivery systems, water systems, emergency services, and–perhaps most damaging–cyberspace. Effectively, the U.S. would be thrown back to the pre-industrial age following a widespread EMP attack.”

Good thread to have around!

It’s a little scary that the anniversary of the bombings in Spain is coming up.

We know how the Muzzie Terrorists love anniversaries!

“Owner, employee of Miami language school charged with immigration fraud
ICE special agents also administratively arrest 81 student visa violators”

SNIPPET: “MIAMI - The owner/operator of a Miami-based foreign language school and one of its employees were indicted on four counts today for conspiring to commit a criminal offense against the United States, following an investigation by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Miami Office of Investigations.

Miami residents Lydia Menocal, 58, the owner and director of the Florida Language Institute (FLI), and Ofelia Macia, 75, an employee of the school, are suspected of fraudulently sponsoring foreign students by issuing student status to non immigrants without requiring them to maintain a full course of study as mandated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) federal regulations. ICE investigations uncovered that only about 5 percent of FLI students attended class on any given day.”
