Posted on 05/27/2008 4:36:32 AM PDT by TornadoAlley3
Dubai, 27 May (AKI ) - By Hamza Boccolini - A new video called "Nuclear Terrorism" has been posted on the worldwide web calling for jihadists to use nuclear or chemical weapons to strike the west.
A simple jihadi propaganda video or a dangerous message to a sleeper cell in the west? That is the question raised by the video and no-one has yet claimed responsibility for it.
"Strike civilians in the west without mercy using weapons of mass destruction" is one of the calls made in the 39-minute video.
The question now being asked is whether the video is presenting a coded message or signalling an imminent terrorist attack.
Before the video was posted on the Arab internet forum Ekhlas a banner headline appeared on the website that said: "Pray, pray, Allah is great. America is destroyed by a fatal jihadist nuclear strike."
Clicking on the banner gives the viewer access to a documentary which shows diverse images - from al-Qaeda speeches to western documentaries and other Islamist videos.
The objective appears to be to incite followers of al-Qaeda to use weapons of mass destruction to strike the west, but there may be more to it.
The video opens with two verses of the Koran that emphasise "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth". It then says "Fight them until there is no more persecution and Allah is the only object of worship. If they desist, there will be no hostility, except against those who are dishonest."
"Attack those who attack you. Fear Allah and know that Allah is with those who fear Him."
The documentary, filmed in Arabic, begins with images of a documentary distributed in November 2004 by the Italian news network, Rai News 24 entitled, The Hidden Massacre, in which US soldiers allegedly used chemical weapons against Iraqis in the city of Falluja.
It also includes the voice of an Arab jihadist who appears to be giving a lesson to a group of people on the need to conduct attacks against the US and Europe.
"This is called terrorism, but we cannot stop aggression against our countries if we do not use these arms, as Russia and the US did when they were conducting their arms race. If you have them, we must also have them."
Then a voice off camera invites mujahadeen or Muslim fighters to learn how to obtain these weapons of mass destruction and shows a document on the "rules for using weapons of mass destruction against the unbelievers" written by Saudi scholar Naser Bin Hamed al-Fahd.
The document dated 21 May 2003 was written by one of the Saudi ulema or religious leaders close to the Salafite movement and to movements opposed to the Saudi royal family that support al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.
"They kill our people and for this reason we should also strike them with weapons of mass destruction - doing so forms part of our response to their attacks,"
"In Jihad we cannot do to them everything they do to us, for example rape our women. But we can respond to weapons of mass destruction.
"There are quantities of uranium on sale, and since the fall of the Soviet Union their nuclear weapons are available on the market.
"The second point is in respect of chemical weapons. They can be used in one of the villages of European countries. This is called terrorism but all this cannot end if we don't conduct such an operation against them.
"We cannot stop the operations against our civilians conducted by Jews and Christians in our countries if we don't do the same thing.
"The problem is nuclear arms are very expensive, while chemical weapons are cheap.
"The best weapons to use are bacteriological ones. This type of barbarous weapon is used by the international community.
"Why shouldn't we use them if the crusaders consider them an effective weapons?"
Just wait... Obama will see to it that soon Iran will hand them out like candy.
I’d call these terrorists cockroaches, but that would be unfair to the lowly cockroach.
The day that Islamofascist terrorists manage to sneak a nuke into a U.S. city and detonate it will be the end of Islam on a global basis. Every so-called ‘holy site’? Green glass special.
Every mosque? New latrine for that neighborhood.
Any life form croaking the words ‘allah akbar’?
Dead as a doornail.
That of course is predicated on America having a President with forged steel balls and not one prattling away about Islam being a ‘religion of peace’ and all of that crap.
I believe they have the capability now, that they’ve had it for some time. They only thing stopping them is the realization that the West’s current leadership would respond with the immediate destruction of all Islam, and all involved in the weapon’s supply chain. Our fault, their fault, or nobody’s fault. Everyone gets it in the shorts regardless. They’ll use one, however, the minute they sense weakness or indecision on our part; the instant they sense we would be unwilling to fight back. It calls to mind the interviews I watched in the 1970s of the former members of the Japanese high command. When asked why they chose to attack the United States at Pearl Harbor, they answered to a man, “we attacked because we were convinced you would not fight back; that you would immediately capitulate.” Those who fail to learn the lessons of history...
Sadly, a nuclear detonation is likely what it will take for the appeasement, head in the sand, “to compare terrorism with an all-encompassing ideology like communism and fascism is evidence of profound confusion”, moronic democrats to finally understand what we’re up against...
The West's current leadership? You mean the leader who mandates the title "Religion of Peace" for all his Islamic buddies? What planet are you from?
I think you overestimate the American press and political class. They will call for more understanding after an initial bout of anger and foot stamping. They will blame President Bush and we will be having midnight basketball in all major muslim cities.
Read Dead Heat by Joel C. Rosenberg.
You mean underestimate.
General Tommy Franks is already on the record as saying that the next terrorist attack (particularly a WMD based attack) would likely result in the suspension of the Constitution and martial law being imposed.
The truth is, that’s what should have been done on 9/12.
We have made it our long-standing policy, made it abundately clear over the years that we will respond in kind. It’s kept our enemies in check since WWII. Though they may field a weapon giving momentary tactical advantage, we will respond with the full might of the American arsenal and erase them from human memory. The Soviets understood this during the Cold War, and refused to risk all, the ultimate destruction of the Motherland, even when Mr. Carter was President.
I wouldn’t count on the same idiots now to ‘wake up’.
They’ll blame conservatives.
After they nuke us, it’ll probably take a civil war first to get rid of the liberals, then move on to the other enemy that did it to us.
And the really ironic part is that it will likely be done by a Democratic president...
I don’t think we needed martial law then. What was needed was the destruction of the islamic world on 9/12 using nuclear weaponry.
About 20 cities and ‘holy sites’ destroyed, from Lybia to Indonesia.
It would ‘reboot’ a lot of the world, but it would be a much safer place in the long run than allowing islam to exist.
Don’t worry. Obama says that terrorism isn’t a big deal.
I debated on which word to use, but I think the poster overestimates their ability to do the right thing.
I hope you’re right, but how many of us would have ever imagined that 9/11 would have caused the press and our politicos to call for more understanding of muslims??
Except that no one will ever be good enough for these animals. In their book, anyone who disagrees with them is *dishonest*.
Seeing how they feed off each other when there's no infidels around to go after does not lend itself to making one able believe them, that they'd leave us alone if we co-operated.
Good luck with the last condition.
I must say that I find the described contents of that video lame in the extreme, nay, impotent. Like the salafist Islamists themselves sense that it is over, yet give it such a powerless shot still.
Verdict: predictable, boring, not feasible, untenable, the dying words of a bunch of losers.
Let it happen, and I can forecast that there will be a massive gathering of militia and non militia groups getting together for a hangin as it used to be said.
Thousands of discussion groups on the web of informers and organized termination squads looking for muslims in the US.
Anybody that has even a remote idea of making a buck on revenge to muslims will have their crack at this, maps of known gatherings being sold on Ebay, how to make a Muslim trap, how to introduce pork products undercover to moslim groups, bounty clubs, companies selling tracking devices, little tricks like looking for people that walk with the heel back of their shoes bent over (its a muslim thing from having to remove shoes constantly)and basically creating havoc hell and conniption against any foreign person either in the US or just entering.
It would dwarf what the Germans did to the Jews because it would not be limited to just the US.
So I say, let it happen.
“Fear Allah and know that Allah is with those who fear Him.”
“General Tommy Franks is already on the record as saying that the next terrorist attack (particularly a WMD based attack) would likely result in the suspension of the Constitution and martial law being imposed.”
Obambi declares martial law, suspends habeas corpus..letfies would be able to jail all their enemies. The firing squads would work 7x24 as in the early days of Castro’s Cuba.
Now that’s a scary scenario. I think I’ll buy another 1000 rounds.
Millions of firearms buried nationwide virtually guarantees that Obama-lama-ding-ding or even the Hildabitch would never be able to “jail all their enemies”, they haven’t got that many jails anyway!
Add in the wild card of our military tending to be more conservative than the general population and I would be willing to bet that if a leftist President suspended the Constitution for ANY reason, and suddenly began a pogrom against conservatives, that President just might find themselves locked into a complimentary guest suite at Mt. Weather, Raven Rock, or some other out-of-the-way FEMA facility. At that point we would be in a no man’s land so far as who or what was running the Country.
Hopefully, it would be a dedicated group of conservative military officers who would be looking to the day when the Constitution could be restored as it was originally intended.
While we have made said statement, no-one in the entire government of the United States would even think about aiming our full might at a religion. And while some countries do in fact support terrorism, the very nature of Nuclear weapons precludes separating the “peaceful muslims” from the “radicals”.
So, unless the attack on the US could be DIRECTLY tied to a specific government, then such a response will not happen. Period.
I believe you cite a distinction without a difference. There’s no such a thing as a “peaceful” or moderate muslim. There are only those actively engaged in jihad, and those sitting on the sidelines like so many vultures patiently roosting the the trees, awaiting a favorable outcome. When it occurs, they will dance in the streets as they did in New York on 9/11. Until August 1945, we never would have believed ourselves capable of directing our full might against a single race (the Japanese). As for doing the same against a particular religion...well, the Mohamedans have been doing exactly that to us, and there is after all a first time for everything, eh?
I agree with you! But what is the attitude of our current administration on the subject? Our current administration preaches that Islam is a peaceful religion with just a handful of radicals doing the terrorism (which is blatantly false). Notice that post-9/11 we did take some form of action. But where where the bulk of the hijackers from? I will give you a hint - it wasn't Afghanistan (or Iraq). It was Saudi Arabia. Yet we continue to play nice with the House of Saud. But we don't mind picking a fight with a country like Afghanistan. And I won't argue against action in Afghanistan. They were harboring the "CEO" of AlQueda. But there are a lot of countries out there who had a very heavy and easy to see hand in the attack on us that remain on our "friends" list.
Obama calls our current threats tiny compare to the USSR.
Imperial Japanese Navy attacked us...they came from a very, very tiny island smaller than Iran!
If we wipe out all Muslims don’t we wipe out our Muslim allies too?
I guess you never read Dinesh Souza articles?
Nearly all the al Queda members want to overthrow their own governments.
OBL has lost his Saudi citizenship during the mid 90’s and the Saudis tried to assassinate him too. Zarahawi has a death warrant on his head by the Egyptian government after the Luxor attack in the mid 90’s.
That old al Queda and Saddam connection? It started with Zarahawi’s Islamic Egypt Jihad group trying to assassinate Mubarak. Saddam gave Zarahawi material support to get even with Mubarak for supporting the Gulf War.
I guess you never read the recent Pentagon Report.
Who help to track down Zaraqawi? The King of Jordan. Zaraqawi was wanted by Jordan government even before the 2003 invasion for various deadly terrorist attacks.
Middle East have their own problems with terrorism too and they don’t like the criminals either.
Don’t put everyone in the same basket.
I think you aimed that reply at the wrong person. It wasn’t me who suggested complete annihilation of all Muslims....
“...I agree with you! But what is the attitude of our current administration on the subject? Our current administration preaches that Islam is a peaceful religion with just a handful of radicals doing the terrorism (which is blatantly false). Notice that post-9/11 we did take some form of action. But where where the bulk of the hijackers from? I will give you a hint - it wasn’t Afghanistan (or Iraq). It was Saudi Arabia.”
The sole purpose using Saudi nationals by OBL is to weaken US relationship with the Saudi Royal Family. They had Palestinians on the hijacking mission too including a French Moccoran.
The radicals want to overthrow the King because he is not Islamic enough for them!
All 911 hijackers were Saudis is propaganda from the Mad Mullash from Iran who want to take over Mecca one day. The Mad Mullahs don’t like the close relationship the United States has with the Saudis.
