Quds Forces planned Boston bombings for 2 years
WND ^ | 4/22/13 | Reza Kahlili

Posted on 04/22/2013 12:03:08 PM PDT by Dave346

Source reveals research included high-value targets inside U.S.

Qasem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s Quds Forces, ordered reconnaissance and intelligence gathering on various events and public gatherings in the United States years ago, culminating in the bombings at the Boston Marathon one week ago, WND has learned.

According to a source within Iran’s intelligence services, the Islamic regime’s Quds Forces, a special unit of the Revolutionary Guards in charge of extraterritorial operations, have done extensive planning on gatherings, events and high-value targets in the United States for some time, but for two years focused on events such as the Boston Marathon.

The source had earlier provided information that tied the Islamic regime to the Boston attack and pointed to the collaboration of the regime’s Quds Forces with the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah and elements of al-Qaida with links to an operational center in South Asia. He said that under Quds Force guidance, Hezbollah recruited sympathizers through collaborators connected to South Asia for terrorist activities in the U.S.

Another source in December told WND that the Quds Forces had drawn up plans for terrorist attacks in the U.S. starting within six months and that an operational team was in the United States to prepare for the attacks. He also said then that suicide bombers and potential terrorists were ready to attack Canada and European countries, including France and England.

The plan was to be automatically launched if America did not accept Iran’s nuclear program, if sanctions increased or a military confrontation took place. The regime felt it must act because current sanctions, which have already devastated Iran’s economy, could spark civilian rioting.

Another worry for the regime, the December source said, was that the push to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad would be a big blow to the Islamic regime and...

This attack was much bigger than the media wants us to believe! I never bought the denials about the 5 unexploded bombs.

And obviously, the jihadist now in the hospital obtained his US citizenship fraudulently. He never intended any allegiance whatsoever to America or our constitution. It should be revoked and the enemy combatant should stand before a military court and then briefly on the hangman’s platform.

Islamic sympathizer B. Hussein Obama is an absolute disgrace to America.

Shiite Iran has been working with Sunni AQ - and Saudi Arabia - for many, many years.

Where do you think Zawahiri and Gadahn have been living?

In Iran. Being waited on by the Revolutionary Guards.

Sunni SA can work with Shi'ites for tactical reasons, just as Iran can work wih Sunnis for tactical reasons, but in the end they are rivals and enemies.

Where do you think Zawahiri and Gadahn have been living? In Iran. Being waited on by the Revolutionary Guards.

Could well be. Do you have any links?

Why are you bashing conservative sources.

Put up your proof to back your objections instead of calling names like socialists do.

I don't say towel head; I do, however, say Islam isn't a religion, but an anti-religion. It's an imperialist totalitarian ideology that masquerades as a religion. It's based on hatred and moral exceptionalism, and deserves to be excluded from any list of religions.

Quite a few, actually. Mesta was the first one I know to spot the RevGuards around Zawahiri way back and mentioned it in a report to Admiral Lowell Jacoby in 2005.

Since then, it has been more or less common knowledge, for example that Laden’s sons and grandchildren were being run by Iran with an eye to taking over AQ in the future, and that the upper echelon AQ was safehoused in Iran for long periods of time.

On the blog, we have some nifty footage of these critters being displayed by the Iranians, and run through military training.

Well, didn’t he just obtain his US citizenship last year? And did he swear an allegiance at the time? All the while plotting jihad on America? Sounds like fraud to me.

Yeah....lol

WND...or what I call World Nut Daily, is similar to those grocery store checkout magazines like the Globe etc...

Sometimes they actually break a legit story but most often they hype existing ones with vaguely connected or unrelated but interesting side stories..

The site has a place in the news cycle as we have always had a tabloid press, but you need to be careful with their content and take it with a grain of salt......

Defamation—also called calumny, vilification, traducement, slander (for transitory statements), and libel (for written, broadcast, or otherwise published words)—is the communication of a statement that makes a claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may give an individual, business, product, group, government, religion, or nation a negative or inferior image.

I think your second statement is dead on the money, Hardraade, though I'm not sure I can regard Islam as proto-socialist.

I think it's safe to say tyranny is tyranny is tyranny; conversely, I doubt that actually says a great deal.

It seems to me Islam has more in common with feudalism than socialism. It's a thoroughly religious-looking ideology that rigidly statifies humanity into a social pyramid based on inheritance. Marxism in all its numerous guises—communism, socialism, "liberalism" or "progressivism" in the U.S.—is outwardly anti-religious, though in practice, it's much like a religion. It, too, mandates social stratification, but in theory, at least, one's social status isn't inherited, though in practice, it often is. European feudalism seems to me the closest match to Islam, with several differences:

• Christianity was a genuine religion, whereas Islam clearly isn't.

• Christianity evolved beyond the practices of the Middle Ages, whereas Islam has remained petrified in the same form since shortly after its emergence.

• Christianity has adapted to changing social conditions and mores without losing its fundamental principles, whereas Islam clearly hasn't.

• Christianity has repudiated the forms of hatred it accepted and even embraced in the past, whereas Islam hasn't.

Those significant differences aside, Islam and feudalism seem closely similar to me: theology dominates everything; the rigid social order is unquestionable; the very few rule the vast majority with absolute theological authority, any anything new is anathema. What passes for "justice" is brutal. I have a hunch women in Europe during the Middle Ages were better off than women under sharia today, though probably not by a great deal.

The moral and intellectual mountain range America still hasn't crossed is the realization Islam is an anti-religion rather than a religion. Until we accept that fact, I'm afraid, we'll continue to spin our wheels.

We know who we can thank for that of course.

We need to worry more about our Saudi “friends” than our Iranian enemies. The Iranians once worked with the US in Afghanistan against the same group that murdered both American and Iranian citizens.
