Threat Matrix: November 2006

Posted on 11/01/2006 8:20:24 PM PST by nwctwx

:::FreeRepublic's Threat Matrix:::
The Price of Victory
-Full Story-

The "bombshell" revelation from last April's National Intelligence Estimate (NIE), which was leaked to the New York Times in September, was that the war in Iraq had resulted in more terrorism, not less. As reported by United Press International's Claude Salhani, "Did we really need 16 intelligence agencies to tell us that? Ten minutes of watching the newscast of your choice, from Al-Jazeera to Fox News, would be enough to convince most observers." But the key question is why the war has provoked the global Jihad.

One answer has to be the influence in the Arab world of the America-
hating network Al-Jazeera
. The AIM DVD on "Terror Television" shows film footage of captured terrorists saying they came to Iraq to kill Americans because of the words and images on Al-Jazeera.

"Murder Squad to quiz father after five die in blaze"
Last updated at 09:01am on 2nd November 2006

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "Murder squad detectives were waiting to interview a father of five last night after his wife and four daughters died in their blazing home.

Mohammed Riaz, 40, was unconscious after suffering severe burns in the fire, which was deliberately started at the family's end-of-terrace house early yesterday.

Neighbours revealed that he had been struggling to come to terms with the terminal illness of his only son, Adam, whom he had visited in hospital hours before the blaze.

It claimed the lives of his wife Caneze, 39, and daughters Sayrah, 16, Sophia, 15, Alisha, ten, and Hannah, three.

Police revealed that the doors to the house in Accrington, Lancashire, were locked from the inside - trapping the victims and forcing firemen to smash through a bay window. Mrs Riaz and her daughters were found dead in the same bedroom. Mr Riaz was critically ill in a specialist burns unit.

His 17-year-old son is receiving treatment for leukaemia and had been given three months to live."

Iraq police seize donkey laden with landmines on Iran border
AFP ^ | November 1 2006

Posted on 11/02/2006 2:52:17 AM PST by jmc1969

Iraqi forces have seized a donkey laden with land mines on the border with Iran, police in the border province of Diyala said Wednesday.

"Smugglers were bringing 52 mines from Iran on a donkey. When we intercepted them, the smugglers managed to escape back across the border but we got the donkey," an officer told AFP on condition of anonymity.

Iraq is in the throes of a violent sectarian conflict and US commanders accuse Iranian agents of supplying weapons to Shiite militia groups linked to Iraq's ruling parties.

Paris Airport Strips 72 Muslim Staff of Security Clearance (11/2/06)

By Alex Duval Smith in Paris Published: 02 November 2006

Seventy two employees of Paris's main airport have lost their security clearance after an anti-terrorism investigation that they posed a security risk.

The employees - mainly aircraft cleaners or baggage handlers - are suspected by France's anti-terrorism co-ordination unit, Uclat, of having links with radical Islam, or of attending terrorist training camps in Pakistan and Afghanistan.....

********According to Uclat, one was a friend of Richard Reid, the British "shoe bomber" who tried to blow up a flight from Paris to Miami in December 2001 and is serving a life sentence in the United States.**************

"Terrorists and others who wish us the worst will be watching this election and will plan accordingly afterward."

Just a question to the assembled masses - what do you think the odds are that the terrorists will not merely passively watch the election, but will try to pull a "Madrid" to influence the results?

"what do you think the odds are that the terrorists will not merely passively watch the election, but will try to pull a "Madrid" to influence the results?"

I would say not likely, because it would hurt their interests bigtime. If such a thing did happen you could expect the dems to immediately blame it on republicans, saying they allowed it to happen because we are distracted in Iraq. I don't think it would fly with the voters though, and such talk would backfire.

Al Qaeda Terrorist Spent Time In Honduras
La Tribuna, Tegucigalpa ^ | June 30, 2004

Posted on 06/30/2004 1:01:47 PM PDT by Shermy

Warning: touched up Babelfish translation from the Spanish

________________________

-He planned attacks against the Panama Canal: State Security

One of the terrorists tied to the Al Qaeda network much sought by United States authorities was in the national territory for several days after planning attacks on the Panama Canal, Minister of Security Oscar Alvarez revealed yesterday.

The civil servant elaborated his statements, when referring that the possible presence of international terrorists is investigated, brought into the country by Mafias that deal with undocumented people.

"We can verify the presence of Middle East terrorists in our country", asserted Alvarez, then criticized that "many people do not believe or do not want to believe in their eagerness to keep Honduras like an island, isolated fropm the global world".

For this case, he detailed that one of the most ruthless terrorists of Al Qaida, identified as Adnan Guishair ale Shukri Jumah (38), who is also called Yafar Al Tayar, was seen in a "coffee net" of the capital, commanding/posting messages to its partisans.

"He is a man of Egyptian origin, that soon detected in Panama and here in Honduras in a coffee net to him", the minister pointed out, to indicate that Policia Internacional (INTERPOL) and the government of the United States corroborated their identity.

"According to teh groups of Intelligence, this one tried to put explosive devices in the Panama Canal to affect the traffic of boats in the zone", aimed.

Oscar Alvarez does not know the true objective of Adnan Guishair

Al Shukri Jumah in the country, but indicated that "Honduras has one of the most important ports of the Central American region and, therefore, we are alert so that the zones are not affected that improve the national economy".

"It is assumed that his high Al Qaida criminal was in Panama, trying to organize a criminal act and, later, he passed by our country, but already totally he was identified", assured.

RECRUITMENT "they are arriving in the country legally or illegaly, through the borders, mainly of Nicaragua, soon they infiltrate into the country to move like common and ordinary people in the sense that one can go away to the coffee net to communicate with other terrorists", he added.

He lamented that there have been recruiting young in the country, to place explosive devices in a place of Central America or the United States. "it is not that it is a forceful fact, but the information has been spilled by reliable informants, therefore we are working arduously in the investigations", indicated.

"these are not inventions of the minister of Security, I want the people to realize the possibility exists that our country is being used like platform of the international terrorists".

He indicated that by the head of the terrorist, authorities of international Intelligence offer the amount of five (5) million dollars.

"the international Middle East terrorists want to infiltrate terrorists into the United States and Central American region, or to attempt against the allies or such American", she said.

In this sense, the civil servant indicated that every day they make operative special of criminal intelligence to give with the whereabouts of that type of people.

"we do not want to bring anxiety to the Honduran people, but one does not discard that they are trying to commit terrorist acts in the country, in vista to the lent aid (?) to the nation of the United States", deduced.

Oscar Alvarez noted that the creation of an antiterrorist law is urgent that allows that the special and operating groups of justice, execute forceful actions against those delinquents.

"we are giving pursuit him to foreigners who are in the country in functions that we could see them like attempts form support battalions to sectors that would be interested in terrorist acts", he concluded.

He shouted, "I am happy to be a Muslim!" But should the rest of the world be happy about that as well? "Man fires shots to protest Pope," from Agence France-Presse, with thanks to Jeffrey Imm:



POLICE detained a man who fired shots into the air outside the Italian consulate allegedly to protest an upcoming visit by Pope Benedict XVI.
The protester had tossed his gun into the garden of the Istanbul residence of the consul general, which is in the same compound as the consulate building, after allegedly firing the shots.

The protester shouted, “I am happy to be a Muslim” as he was detained.

GWADAR: WILL HU OR WILL HU NOT?
By B. Raman


ARTICLE SNIPPET: "5. Even though the Pakistani authorities are keen that he should formally inaugurate the port, Pakistani official sources say that the port is not yet ready to be commissioned. The port is being constructed in two phases. In the first phase, the originally fishing harbour of Gwadar is being converted into an international port to cater to the external trade of Pakistan, Afghanistan, the Central Asian Republics, and the Xinjiang region of China.

ARTICLE SNIPPET #2: 7. Moreover, a decision is yet to be taken by the Pakistani authorities as to who will operate the port. Originally, it was being rumoured that this contract would be given to a Dubai company of international reputation, but Beijing is reported to have shown interest in the contract being given to one of the Chinese bidders from Singapore and Hong Kong. Fresh tenders have reportedly been called for.

8. Despite these teething problems, the Chinese remain committed to undertaking the construction of the second phase which would create a naval base in Gwadar by 2010, capable of being used by the Pakistani and Chinese navies. It is learnt that preliminary work in this regard is already on despite the deterioration in the security situation after the murder of Nawab Bugti."

The organizers of the exhibit -- meant as a response to the Danish cartoons of Islam's Prophet Mohammed that enraged many Muslims -- awarded Abdollah Derkaoui $12,000 Wednesday for his work depicting an Israeli crane piling large cement blocks on Israel's security wall and gradually obscuring Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. A picture of Auschwitz appears on the wall.

The mosque is Islam's third-holiest site."

Speaking of roses, I have roses, impatiens, pansies and marigolds that continue to bloom. It is somewhat unusual but wonderful! I just took in some more luscious yellow roses. They are so fragrant this year.

"Egypt offers economic incentives to Russian firms"
MOSCOW, November 2 (RIA Novosti) -


ARTICLE SNIPPET: "Mubarak also told Putin that relations between their two countries had reached a high point. During his visit to the Russian capital, the first since May 2004, he is also expected to meet the prime minister, and Egypt's foreign minister is set to meet his Russian counterpart.

The authoritarian Egyptian leader, who has ruled his country for 25 years, has long-standing links with Russia and the Soviet Union. A former pilot who served in a bomber squadron, he received part of his training in Kyrgyzstan, and studied at a military academy in Moscow in the 1960s."

"Zawahiri used madrassa to train bombers: Pak"
Press Trust of India

Islamabad, November 1, 2006|19:18 IST


ARTICLE SNIPPET: "A religious school destroyed in an army air raid in Bajaur tribal area was frequented by Al-Qaeda number two Ayman al-Zawahiri who used it to train suicide bombers, Pakistani officials have said.

The facility, known as Maulvi Liaquat's madrassa, was used for imparting training to new recruits with second and third-tier leadership of Al-Qaeda, by al-Zawahiri and his associates Abu Obaida al-Misri and Abu Farrah Libbi, top security officials told a briefing on Tuesday.

They displayed to media stills and videos of the early morning training sessions at the destroyed seminary with participants from Swat, Dir, Bajaur and even Afghanistan.

The photos taken through infrared camera showed people aged between 20 to 30 carrying out exercises with no weapons.

"No weapon or arms were shown as being used for training, as tactics of terrorists have been changed and they prepare suicide bombers," local daily The News today quoted a Pakistani official as saying.

The facility was frequently visited by al-Zawahiri, Libbi, al-Misri and others to prepare a new lot of foot soldiers as Al-Qaeda is reportedly running short of them."

Activist gets ASIO papers (American deported from Australia as 'security risk')
news.com.au ^ | 3rd November 2006

Posted on 11/02/2006 5:52:00 PM PST by naturalman1975

AN American peace activist deported from Australia last year and two detained Iraqi asylum seekers have been granted access to ASIO documents that deemed them security risks.

Peace activist Scott Parkin was classified a national security risk while on holiday in Australia last September and was deported.

Iraqi asylum seekers Mohammad Sagar and Muhammad Faisal, who have been detained for more than five years, also received adverse security assessments from ASIO.

The three men applied to the Federal Court for access to the ASIO documents after the federal Government refused to release them.

Justice Ross Sundberg today granted them access to the assessments to prepare for a case that will challenge the ASIO decision deeming them security risks.

In his judgment, Justice Sundberg said he accepted the three men's argument that they needed access to the ASIO documents for their case to prove they were not national security risks.

07:22 PM Mountain Standard Time on Thursday, November 2, 2006

By The Associated Press / Fox 11

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- An explosive device has gone off at Foothills Mall on Tucsons northwest side this evening.

Authorities with Northwest Fire and the Pima County Sheriffs Department tell KMSB-TV it exploded shortly after six p.m. in a trash can outside the Barnes and Noble bookstore.

One eyewitness described it as an "acid bomb" but there was no immediate confirmation of exactly what type of explosive.

A spokesperson for the Pima County Sheriffs Department said it was "some sort of an acid-type device which did explode."

The bookstore has been evacuated and the southeast corner of the parking area at the mall cordoned off.

There are no initial reports of injuries.

It may be a prank, but bombs of any type (big or small) going off in a mall is not a good deal.
