Threat Matrix: Daily Terror Threat - Thread SEVENTEEN
World Net Daily ^ | 8-10-04 | Paul Sperry

Posted on 08/10/2004 12:58:27 AM PDT by JustPiper




Credit: The Cabal

The title refers to a daily report given to the president of the United States detailing the most serious terrorist threats against the country. To tackle those threats, the government has formed a top-notch task force to infiltrate the terror cells and cut off the danger.

"Every morning, the president receives a list of the top ten terrorist threats - this list is known as the threat matrix."

We here at FR are trying to be in conjunction with the daily reports around the world that involve threats. We try to provide a storehouse of information that takes hours of research.

YOU be the Judge and get informed.


"I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat."

Link to Thread Sixteen





With the nation on high alert for al-Qaida terrorists, the Department of Homeland Security is putting its border officers through "etiquette" classes to soften their image and make them less threatening to arriving foreign immigrants, WorldNetDaily has learned.





"God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers."
-- Jewish proverb







We are the "Stotters" who make ourselves aware of the
enemy who wishes to do us harm.

Please pay close attention:
PLEASE FOLLOW THE RULES

First and foremost I want to apologize to the moderators for what they experienced on Thread 14. We will do our best to make sure this does not repeat itself EVER!

This is what it is TM'rs. We all know we are guests in Jim's 'home' and with that comes consideration and respect.

There will be NO bashing any mods, it will be taken private or there will be NO MORE Threat Matrix !!! That comes from the top!

Please everyone here review the following rules, they are not posted just for fun, they must be adhered to!

Do lead by example - Nothing improves a forum more than posters who reason sharply, write well, and have some perspective about it all. Be one of them.

Do preview - Preview twice, post once. And, ahem, close your HTML tags before you hit the reply button.

Do keep it clean - A bruise or two between Freepers is tolerable, but refrain from abusive attacks, engaging in senseless flame wars, and using profane language. Considering the range of topics we discuss, it's hard to be a family site, but that's what we aim for when at all possible.

Do "take it to the Alley" - The Alley is a public chat room. A link to it is provided on the latest posts page. Invite people there if you want to talk things over or settle a score, so to speak, off site.

Do use common sense - If you read a post that sounds too good or strange to be true, it probably is.

Do stay on topic
FR has varied topics for whatever you need to say

Do keep "vanity" posts to a minimum - Free Republic is primarily a place to discuss news, articles, and editorials. Vanity posts, creations of the poster him or herself, should meet a high standard of quality before one is even considered worthy of posting.

Don't jump threads - If you get involved in an argument in one thread, it's considered poor manners to restart the previous argument in the middle of an unrelated thread.

Don't play games - Don't represent yourself as another person, create or use another screen name to avoid a revocation of posting privileges, misrepresent the site or your role in it

I cannot stress the following enough:
{{{Don't be a whiner - If you really, really find Free Republic or Threat Matrix not to your liking, let the webmaster know directly (jimrob@psnw.com), learn to live with it, or move along.}}}

IMPORTANT:

Things to Look Out For: Be Observant:

Multiple sightings of the same suspicious person, vehicle or activity at the same location;

Individuals or activities that don't "fit" into the surrounding environment;

Individuals sitting in a parked vehicle for an extended period of time;

Individuals or several people sketching or taking notes, photographing or videotaping areas or buildings not normally associated with tourist activity;

Clothing out of place for the weather, such as someone wearing a heavy coat in hot weather;

Individuals or people carrying unusually heavy bags or backpacks;

Vehicles -- especially vans, U-Hauls or delivery trucks -- improperly parked or parked in locations not normally associated with deliveries;

Follow your instinct. If something doesn't look right, it might not be.

Suppose a cadre of sleeper cell members chose to open fire (automatic weapons) on any given US city (take over a major building, etc.). Other than SWAT teams, how prepared are our law enforcement personnel to deal with such a scenario. When they have to account for every bullet shot,
how experienced would they be defending us from people intent on killing every American they see and at the end commiting suicide. Are we truly prepared for that type of scenario?

We are all so very vulnerable when we go to restaurants, malls, and big box stores. If memory serves me right, they planned to "surprise" us.

Wouldn't it be a lot better if our restaurant owners, mall personnel and big box store personnel were trained for just such a situation?

For that matter, when you go into a restaurant, mall or big box store, do you note the nearest entrace/exit. If gunfire broke out, what would you do (expecially if you had children or grandchildren in tow)? Time to think about the possibilities......because you can bet THEY are!

What to keep in mind in NYC:

Even if it means walking a few blocks out of your way, I would suggest staying away from especially crowded corners where pedestrian gridlock occurs, e.g. 34th Street, Times Square, Rockefeller Center. I would wear sneakers in case you have to run. Make sure you have cash in case ATM goes down due to power failure. Carry a small flashlight, bottle of water and snack and a portable radio. Even if you're just stepping out of your building for a lunch break, carry your bag, phone and belongings just in case something happens while you're out. My experience during last summer's blackout: they wouldn't let you back
upstairs for anything.

FROM THE FBI:

For your information, the Internet Tip Line (ITL)
was created on 9/11/01, in response to the
terrorist attacks upon America. We quickly
established a mechanism for the public to submit
information to the FBI via the Internet, and we
received our first tip at 10:31 AM that first day.
Director Mueller has since made the ITL a
permanent part of FBI operations, and we have thus
far received over 900,000 tips from around the
globe, from which thousands of leads have been
sent to FBI Field and Legal Attaché Offices for
action.

Initially, almost 100% of the tips received were
related to the terrorist attacks; now,
approximately 45% of all tips received are related
to almost every other FBI criminal program, e.g.,
drug trafficking, organized crime, money
laundering, pyramid schemes, child pornography,
fugitives, bank robbery.

Our operation is completely automated and
paperless. Submitted tips are received
immediately, reviewed within minutes and
prioritized by trained Professional Support
personnel, and Agents set action leads within the
hour, as appropriate.

We encourage you to share this information with
your family, friends, and co-workers, and
encourage them to not hesitate to submit
information they may deem of interest to the FBI.

IMPORTANT - NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

The FBI does not maintain an email address to
submit information or attachments to directly;
therefore, please do not reply directly to this
message via your email client. The FBI maintains
an automated system that is designed to track all
information received, to ensure that all tips are
addressed in a timely and efficient manner.
Therefore, please visit the FBI.GOV Web site again
should you have occasion to submit additional
information. We WILL NOT open or respond to
"reply" email.

Terror alerts and you

5 Tips: Dealing with terror alerts


What does it mean for investors and the nation's financial markets? Here are today's five tips.

1. Don't panic.

While the explosion of a car or truck bomb at one of the nation's financial institutions would be a tragedy, it would not stop the nation's financial markets.

After 9/11, these institutions developed backup systems that would take over in the event of a terrorist attack allowing customers to cash checks and take out money from ATMs. The New York Stock Exchange has said that it can continue to oversee stock trading even if its famous trading floor was out of commission because of a contingency trading floor and backup computer systems.

Communications systems between banks and federal regulators were also upgraded. And practice drills testing the backup systems in the event of a terrorist attack have been conducted.

In addition, the financial industry is less concentrated today than it was three years ago. After the World Trade Center disaster, many of the nation's leading brokerages and banks moved offices from Manhattan's southern tip to other parts of the city and even other states.

The result is that a single attack in the city's traditional financial district would impact fewer institutions and customers.

2. Resist the urge to sell.

When the markets finally opened after the September 11th attacks, the Dow, Nasdaq and S&P 500 fell sharply. The Dow plunged 685 points, the Nasdaq dropped 116 points, and the S&P 500 sank 54 points. Anxiety about a similar situation might lead some investors to consider unloading their investments.

It's natural to worry about the effect an attack could have on an individual's retirement or education savings. But any strategy you make out of fear -- whether putting all your money in gold coins or stashing it in your mattress -- is a fool's game.

Many analysts predicted a sell-off in today's trading. Instead, the markets have shown remarkable resilience. Let's face it, no one knows whether an attack will occur. You could easily do more damage to your portfolio unloading your stocks and bonds without thought to what price you're being forced to sell at.

Likewise, it doesn't make much sense to try to play today's fear by buying the stocks of defense or security companies. You're better off making investments you're comfortable with for the long haul, rather than trying to score a quick gain playing market fears.

3. Hold steady.

Instead of panicking, your best bet is to make sure all your financial ducks are in a row. Make sure that you have bank and 401(k) statements available and handy.

If you bank or trade stocks online, print out an update of your account holdings. Not only does this provide you a record of your holdings, but it also refreshes your memory about what accounts you have and exactly what they hold.

4. Maintain good habits.

Remember, that the 9/11 disaster resulted in the suspension of trading for four days. For that reason, don't make a major change to your portfolio now, unless it's essential.

You're better off scheduling periodic checks on your asset allocation to make sure that you're investing wisely.

5. Control what you can.

While it's true there's little you can do about the terrorist threats, do what you can to secure the safety of you and your family.

If you live in one of the cities where the terror threat is now at the highest level, make sure to have a disaster plan at hand. Decide ahead of time where you and your family would meet if a problem occurred. Make sure you have food and water handy at your office, and at home. Having land line phone numbers is essential. The 9/11 disaster interrupted cell phone service.

If you don't live in one of the cities targeted, control the risks you can. Check your home and life insurance to make sure you have adequate coverage. Create your own backup communication systems with friends and family.

Alert Tips!

by Donna Lee Nardo

Pay attention to cell phones -- phones that will activate explosives and phones that take pics. Technology helps us and it also helps the bad guys. E.g., Is that swarthy type innocently talking to a friend on his cell, is he about to explode a remote bomb or is he casing a building and taking pictures of the area? It only gets more complicated these
days.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

by CharlotteVRWC

WE need to all be carrying cameras or videocams, and snap pictures or
film those guys that are filming buldings, bridges, tunnels.

by ExSoldier Invaluable Tips:
This is just the first step to being secure. IMHO.
518 posted on 08/03/2004 5:47:15 PM CDT

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WARNING:

I do not advocate folks get firearms training from any other than a certified instructor (like me) or from a book, neither would I feel real great about having somebody try something I described on the thread and
getting killed for their effort. I know exactly what to do if I'm grabbed from behind, but the response is inculcated to the point of instinctual reaction and difficult to "explain." Therefore we need to keep it so simple, it can be done in "one move." But before we get to "moves" we
have to start with :

"ATTITUDE!"

Be aware -

See life as a series of threat levels - think of them like a stoplight: Green, Yellow, Red.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A. Green means "GO" and 99% of the population (except FREEPERS!) is stuck in this mode. They go through life with their eyes down, thinking of everything but their own safety. They wonder what's on tv; who phoned while they were out; what's for dinner; does he or she really love me;
etc. Everything but what matters.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

B. Yellow means "caution." You must be aware of your surroundings in a 360 degree perimeter for about a forty foot radius. You should be "aware" of every moving object and living thing in that area. How do you keep track of what's behind you?

If you're walking down a sidewalk and a car passes near you on the road, you can tell by the sound of it's tires how fast it's moving and the wind pressure against your body.

You can hear when it slows down by the engine noise and brakes.

If you approach your car in a parking lot, be sure to not only check the back seat, but also under the car before you even get close.

Moving perimeter____

You are aware of things and allow your little onboard "voice" that everyone has and never listens to....to let you know something is strange.

What about the guy who looks drunk and is stumbling towards you? Is he only faking being drunk, are his feet moving in a coordinated fashion but his body seems to sway and stumble?

Can you see his hands? Look around. Do you see anybody reacting to your specific presence, for example some guy crosses the street to your side for no apparent reason? Let's say you glance across the street and become aware that another man seems to be moving in concert with the first.

Now what?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Insert a color here to the Traffic light model----ORANGE ALERT--

is a heightened alert specific to a given situation. It means you are aware of a specific threat to your person. You must assess and then decide how to act and whether to raise an alrm as it were, or disengage and get the heck out of there or finally (and only if you're qualified to
do so) to engage. The key is assessment!

ASSESS, ASSESS, ASSESS!

Look for a weapon or the possibility of a weapon.

Look for backup buddies out to the wings or in a vehicle.

Assess!

Then...DECIDE. From the second of actual decision, you must instantly do one of two things:

ENGAGE or DISENGAGE.

I always recommend to disengage! Unless you're judicial meanz. Or somebody trained and experienced in this kind of action.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CONDITION RED. This is quite simply, COMBAT. Slapping leather going for the draw, whatever.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Condition green invites victimization.

Condition Orange can't be maintained for very long, you'll tire quickly.

But Condition YELLOW can be maintained forever without effort. You can live, eat and sleep in Yellow. It's very easy to take somebody in condition green. It's might well be impossible to take anybody in "yellow."

__________________________________________________________

FOOTNOTES:

When grabbed from behind: "Pinch" the skin on the inner part of the thigh (pant material is thinner here) and just twist the crap outta it!

You can try this on yourself and be aware of the sensation without maiming yourself in the process. The idea here is to make the person LET GO in a shock reaction. After that, you may have to follow up with some other strike or just haul A$$.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One more important technique!

It only works at night or in some really dark area like a parking garage, but for folks especially living behind enemy lines in a gun oppressed area get a SureFire Flashlight of at least two lithium cells in strength. Their 6P model is a fine choice but if you can afford bigger by all means, as long as you can carry it well.

The beam of one of these lights is easily enough to temporarily blind/stun an attacker when he doesn't know it's coming. They are tail switch activated and some can be had with a bezel ring adjuster that is jagged and useful as a striking weapon. I'm never without mine, even when I'm armed. Maybe especially when I'm armed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* $20 in quarters in a sock to beat the snot outta criminal.

* Take a section of newspaper and roll it up like you were going to swat a fly. Then bend it double and hold it in your fist. It should allow your fingers to close all the way around it. Where the crease appears there will be a number of small points or knobs. That is the striking
surface. You'll find that the paper is now a sturdy club capable of literally splitting skulls.

* A variation or should I say an evolution of the Kubaton is called the Kerambit. It's an innocous looking little piece of plastic that looks like it's shaped into a broad "L" shape with a hole in one end. Use it
correctly and you can take anyone any size at anytime.

I learned in a YMCA self-defense for women class several years ago:

1) If grabbed from behind, take a deep breath and don't freeze up - this will surprise the attacker and he may loosen his grip.

2) If grabbed from behind, put your chin to your chest and throw your head back hard to either knock the wind out of him or smash his nose or throat depending on the height of you and the attacker. Use your elbows as weapons.

3) If face to face, knee to groin first. Then take the sole of your hand and smash their nose upwards and in as hard as you can. The instructor said this can actually kill someone. If keys aren't handy, two fingers in the eyes may help you get away.

4) If attacked from the side, kick the knee and run your shoe down their shin as hard as you can. Stomp as hard as you can on the top of their foot.

5) A purse can be a lethal weapon if swung really hard.

You've got one chance to get away, so give it all you've got.

I posted a link at #481. Do a site search for Impact Kerambit. It's only $9. But I would recommend the video that you can also get. Maybe another $12.

My dad sent me a safety tips for women kind of article a while back and it says the elbow is the strongest bone in the body....use it!

"What to do if approached from behind "

I was taught for starters to jab into the person with elbow(other hand over fist pushing back)followed by a kick straight back (with high heels of course) and then slam down on the instep. Do this as rapid and as forcefully as you can.

TIP by Don Joe
813 posted on 08/04/2004 6:39:38 AM CDT

To drop someone, you want to kick the knee sideways, because it only takes about 12 lbs or so to tear the ligament that holds it all together.
(The front-back connections are very strong, but the sideways ligaments are apparently very weak, not designed to withstand much trouble.)
_________________________________________________________

TIP by Labyrinthos
311 posted on 08/03/2004 11:08:30 AM CDT

A sharp blow to the point of the nose with the palm of the hand also works well. There are nerve bundles between the shoulder joint and base of the neck, which if struck firmly will cause temporary paralysis.

There are also nerve bundles on the mound of the forearm just below the elbow that if struck firmly will temporarily immobilize the arm.

The top of the foot near the leg bone is also a painfull spot.

One of the best carry on weapons is a belt with a heavy metal buckle.

Always carry a sharp pen and a key ring so that the ring fits into your palm when you make a fist and the longest key sticks out between your index and middle finger.

The key is to focus and to size up your potential opponent before you have to act so that you have a plan of attack if the need arises.

1) Always carry a rat-tail comb, and keep it close at hand. Use it to gouge out an attackers eyes. Dont be squeamish-they wont be, and its better than being dead. The attacker cannot hurt you if they cannot see you.

2) Wind your keys in your fingers, and use them to hit the person in the face around the eyes. If they cant see you, they cant hurt you.

3) A kick to the groin is cliche. Most men expect it to come and shield for it instinctively. Kick for the knees instead, and aim the kick to knock the knee backwards for maximum injury effect. If they cant walk, they cant chase you and hurt you.

4) If you are grabbed from behind, reach down there and grab a handful of groin ( I wont name it, but you know what I am referring to). Twist that thing right off if you have to. Use maximum force and twist your hand while you pull. They cant rape if they cant use it.

5) Drive your heels into their shins as hard as you can while you do the "vending machine pull" on the groin. That will make them involuntarily throw up, hopefully.

6) If they are close enough to grab you, you have the upper hand because you can react before they act ( if you are prepared). If they are two arm lengths away, you do not have the advantage. Always draw them in close to hurt them, and act quickly.

* Use a tube sock and put either a bar of soap or something else with a little oomph into it. Then beat the snot out of the terrorist.

Criminals use this little trick all the time in jails te even scores.

Some of them end up in critical condition from sock/soap attacks.

UNDIVIDED

A nation undivided,
By terror's bitter hand;
Resolved to not fall victim,
Together, we shall stand.

For freedom gives us courage,
To face each day anew;
And liberty still rings for us,
When we see red, white and blue.

Tho' tears may fall in sorrow,
And heart's break near and far;
The love we have for our fellow man,
Defines just who we are.

For we are a people of justice,
And justice will ring true;
For those who died, we remember them,
When we see red, white and blue.

And we are a people of honor;
Who won't fall to terror's hand;
A nation undivided,
Together, we shall stand.

General description of vehicles to watch, re: Vehicle Bourne Improvised Explosive Devices.

To add to this post, from my own experience and observation, and this is something I have not seen mentioned anywhere:

Trucks and Vans used by Utility Companies, such as Gas, Electric, Phone, etc. tend to be virtually INVISIBLE. People don't notice them, cops don't notice them, etc. When was the last time you ever saw a service truck pulled over by a cop?

These trucks also generally have pretty free access to restricted areas, and most people wouldn't think it too strange to see one parked RIGHT NEXT TO A BUILDING!

A lot of these type of trucks also have a large capacity.

Please, people, don't think I'm giving the jihadis anything they haven't already thought of, and don't be fooled by trucks that "look" OK - LOGO DECALS CAN BE DUPLICATED!

Bottom Line - if something looks out of place - REPORT IT!

The official said the intelligence included security in and around these buildings; the flow of pedestrians; the best places for reconnaissance; how to make contact with employees who work in the buildings; the construction of the buildings; traffic patterns; locations of hospitals and police departments; and which days of the week present less security at these buildings.

To illustrate the level of detail obtained, the official cited these examples: midweek pedestrian traffic of 14 people per minute on each side of the street for a total of 28 people; that some explosives might not be hot enough to melt steel; and that the construction of some buildings might prevent them from falling down.

The official said he had not seen such extraordinary detail in his 24 years in intelligence work.

A White House spokeswoman, Erin Healy, said the intelligence on the threat is "very new, coming in during the last 72 hours."

"The president made the final decision today agreeing with the recommendation of Secretary Ridge to go ahead and raise the threat level in these select areas," Healy said.

This was the first time the color-coded warning system had been used in such a narrow, targeted way, Ridge said at a news conference at department headquarters.

"With this kind of information comes action," Ridge said. "This is sobering news."

This step will "bring protective resources to an even higher level" and alert industry employees to be extra vigilant, he said. Actions to tighten security around the five buildings he specifically named are under way, Ridge said.

He said workers at those buildings should get guidance from security officers at each site and remain alert as they go to work.

Emergency Responder Awareness Advisory From FEMA/USFA

More Suspicious Activities at Fire Houses...

More suspicious activities at fire and emergency medical service departments have occurred. During the month of August, three engine companies of the St. Louis Fire Department reported incidents involving male subjects of "middle eastern" appearance who fled the scene when approached or questioned.

At one Engine Company the suspect was observed video taping the fire house. At another company the subject escaped after video taping the facility and the apparatus inside. At a third location the suspect entered the fire house and made inquiries regarding the size, floor space, and load capacity of the ambulance housed therein.

These recent events reinforce the necessity for all emergency response departments to remain vigilant for data collection by potential adversaries. They are reminders that all department personnel must fight complacency and remain ready to quickly stop unauthorized information gathering by the questions and filming of alleged visitors. Also, first responders should avoid sharing information with unknown individuals who communicate by telephone or electronic mail. Intelligence experts confirm that terrorists study the information they obtain to identify existing vulnerabilities and to plan their attacks accordingly.

Failure to prevent unsanctioned collection of details about the fire and emergency medical services may jeopardize the critical infrastructures upon which the protection of life and property depends. It is as important to avert as the theft of uniforms and vehicles used by emergency responders.

When a suspicious incident occurs such as the ones mentioned above, in addition to notifying the local authorities, the National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC) requests contact using the NIPC information seen at the bottom of this INFOGRAM. Notification of the NIPC will enable their specialists to attempt identification of the patterns, methods, and sources of past and future malicious actions directed against the critical infrastructures of emergency first responders. -- Go to the USFA CIP Report

THE FOLLOWING TEXT IS AN EXACT QUOTE:

PREVENTING TERRORIST ATTACK:
How You Can Help.


08/02/04


This is a message that bears repeating, no matter where you live in the world: Your assistance is needed in preventing terrorist acts.


It's a fact that certain kinds of activities can indicate terrorist plans that are in the works, especially when they occur at or near high profile sites or places where large numbers of people gather--like government buildings, military facilities, utilities, bus or train stations, major public events. If you see or know about suspicious activities, like the ones listed below, please report them immediately to the proper authorities. In the United States, that means your closest Joint Terrorist Task Force, located in an FBI Field Office. In other countries, that means your closest law enforcement/counterterrorism agency.


Surveillance: Are you aware of anyone video recording or monitoring activities, taking notes, using cameras, maps, binoculars, etc., near key facilities/events?


Suspicious Questioning: Are you aware of anyone attempting to gain information in person, by phone, mail, email, etc., regarding a key facility or people who work there?


Tests of Security: Are you aware of any attempts to penetrate or test physical security or procedures at a key facility/event?


Acquiring Supplies: Are you aware of anyone attempting to improperly acquire explosives, weapons, ammunition, dangerous chemicals, uniforms, badges, flight manuals, access cards or identification for a key facility/event or to legally obtain items under suspicious circumstances that could be used in a terrorist attack?


Suspicious Persons: Are you aware of anyone who does not appear to belong in the workplace, neighborhood, business establishment or near a key facility/event?


"Dry Runs": Have you observed any behavior that appears to be preparation for a terrorist act, such as mapping out routes, playing out scenarios with other people, monitoring key facilities/events, timing traffic lights or traffic flow, or other suspicious activities?


Deploying Assets: Have you observed abandoned vehicles, stockpiling of suspicious materials, or persons being deployed near a key facility/event?


If you answered yes to any of the above...if you have observed any suspicious activity that may relate to terrorism...again, please contact the Joint Terrorist Task Force or law enforcement/counterterrorism agency closest to you immediately. Your tip could save the lives of innocent people, just like you and yours.

ASSYRIAN COMPOUND ATTACKED IN BAGHDAD
No word of casualties

By: Stefan J. Bos
Special Correspondent, ASSIST News Service

BAGHDAD, IRAQ  (ANS) -- The Assyrian Christian Compound in Baghdad came under mortar attack Monday, August 9, just over a week after bombers killed up to 15 Christians, news reports and church officials said. (Pictured: Christians fleeing after church attack on Sunday, August 1)

Assyrian leaders said the targeted compound in the Iraqi capital's Zayuna district houses a clinic, a women's center and a computer center. It also provides free telephone calls to those in need and supports humanitarian relief activities in addition to serving as the nerve center for Assyrian Christians in Iraq.

There was no word of casualties, but the violence was expected to increase concern among Iraqi Christians. Hundreds and possible thousands of Christians have reportedly fled to countries such as Jordan and Syria following attacks against five Assyrian churches on Sunday, August 1, in Baghdad and Mosul.

PRAYING FOR BOMBERS

Those who stayed behind, including believers of Baghdad's Chaldean Church of St Peter and St Paul where most Christians died, have prayed for those responsible for what was the largest terrorist attack against Christians since the 15 months old insurgency began.

"We cannot understand why or how they could do something like this," Fr Faris Toma told the British daily The Daily Telegraph last week. "All we can do is ask God to give them forgiveness and grant us peace."

In addition the well informed Internet website Assyrianchristians.com (http://www.assyrianchristians.com) reported on other recent incidents, including the killings of two Christian children, six and sixteen, in their Baghdad home.

SECTARIAN 'WARFARE'

Monday's attack against the Assyrian compound further confirmed that "the anti-democratic forces in Iraq are trying to start sectarian 'warfare'", the community said in a statement released via the Internet.

Yet, "by attacking the various Assyrian Christian offices...they have failed to generate support from the Iraqi public who have been sympathetic to the plight of the Christians. This latest savage attack as the previous ones will fail because the Iraqi people understand what is happening," an official said.

The mainly Assyrian Christians are the indigenous people of Iraq, and experts say many were forcibly converted to the Moslem religion throughout the centuries and especially under the last years of the Saddam Hussein regime.

MASSIVE MIGRATION

While some church officials claim there are around 2.5 million Assyrian Christians still in Iraq, most estimates suggest the real figure may be roughly 750,000, due to persecution and massive migration.

"With the rise of radical Muslim clerics the situation has changed dramatically and there has been an exodus of these once large communities," said Ken Joseph, a spokesman for the Assyrian Christians in Iraq.

A hitherto unknown group, the "Planning and Follow-up Committee in Iraq", claimed responsibility for the attacks. It said: "Your mujahideen brothers dealt painful blows to the dens of the Crusaders, the dens of evil, corruption, vice and Christianization," the Daily Telegraph reported.

ENCOURAGED

However Joseph said he was encouraged that the "one Assyrian Christian Minister" in the government, Pascale Warda, enjoys "broad support" within the cabinet "for her courage and outspoken views supporting a strong and independent Iraq."

In addition Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, Iraq's senior Shia cleric, has denounced the church bombings as "hideous crimes". Iraq's interim government blamed them on foreign Islamist militants led by the al-Qaeda-linked terrorist, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, news reports said.

Yet at least one Assyrian Christian reportedly said Christians are showing defiance. "We were afraid before, we are no longer so," the unidentified woman was quoted as saying in an internet message from the Assyrian community. "I will wear my cross proudly. Nobody is going to force me, my family or our people from our country. The more they try the stronger we are becoming." she added.

Help My State PLEASE:

To: The National Republican Senatorial Committee; Senator Peter Fitzgerald; Speaker Dennis Hastert; all IL GOP Congressmen; IL GOP State Legislators; IL GOP Officers and State Central Committee Members; former Governors James Thompson, James Edgar, and George Ryan, also perhaps other present & former GOP public officials & candidates
In the spirit of unity, for effectiveness...

The Illinois GOP State Central Committee has wisely, boldly, and courageously reached out to Ambassador Alan Keyes, to be our Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate. We are very fortunate at this late hour to have this excellent candidate.

Now that we have the best candidate, we need Illinois’ network of Republican campaign contributors to honor him by their donations. Commensurate national support is also required. Such contributions also honor the massive volunteer effort motivated with Dr. Keyes.

We, who sign or electronically endorse this petition, entreat Republican leaders to…

1. personally contact key campaign donors you know, asking them to make significant contributions to the Keyes campaign
2. communicate your support of Alan Keyes to the campaign volunteers you know
3. network with the campaign, in public endorsements and the above activities

…this, in order to get Alan Keyes elected, to mutually energize our Republican campaigns, and to lift the Republican principles we all espouse to a renewed prominence, with the vigor that together we can bring to 2004’s elections and onward.

The time is short. We all need to act immediately and of our own initiative. The entire nation will be watching our performance in this unique and historic campaign. Will you join us in being a most effective part of it?

Sincerely,

The Undersigned
