Palestinian jihadist group claims credit for Arizona wildfire
Long War Journal ^ | July 3, 2013 | By David Barnett

Posted on 07/03/2013 10:49:41 PM PDT by Brad from Tennessee

A Palestinian jihadist group, Masada al Mujahideen, recently claimed credit for ongoing wildfires in Arizona in a statement posted to jihadist forums today. The statement, titled "Masada al-Mujahideen Fulfilled its Promise and Attacked America Again After the Expiration of the Period with Fires that Achieved Historic Results," was obtained and translated by the SITE Intelligence Group.

"We had previously announced an unconventional war against the occupation state of Israel, and then we escalated this war to reach its main supporter, America, so that it receives a major share of it, which will destroy their flora and fauna, with permission from Allah and then with our hands," the group said.

The statement further said that the group targeted the United States "in order to make it clear and to make it know we can reach it when we warn it, and to make it certain that our hands don't just reach it but also strike it."

The group warned that the attacks "will not be the last...if America does not respond to our demands." The statement boasted that 19 firefighters had been killed in the fires.

Contrary to the claims of Masada al Mujahideen, authorities have said that they believe the fires were started as a result of lighting.

Today's statement was not the first highly dubious claim by the jihadist group related to fires in the US. In January 2012, the group claimed credit for wildfires in Nevada.

According to SITE, in addition to claiming responsibility for fires in the US, the jihadist group has claimed credit for more than a dozen fires in Israel since 2010. . .

Was comrade obama just covering for his friends when he blamed the fire on “global warming?”

"the fires were started as a result of lighting." and "TWA 800 was a spark caused by a fuel pump inside a fuel tank""

If this is true and so many lives lost then the US (probably not under Obama) must immediately cut off aid to the so-called Palestinian Authority, stop supporting Abbas and lend a hand to the Israelis in building in the West Bank.

Hit ‘em where it hurts. Instead, what are we doing?

Propping up terrorists the world over.

In Israel, every summer the so-called land loving Palestinians torch hectare upon hectare of land where Jews live. It's their way of cultivating good neighborly relations. The scum.

They waited until 19 people died before they claimed credit?

Doesn't matter whether they started them or not. The fact that they want us to burn is enough for me to kill every last one. I'm thinking carpet bombing and don't give a shit about collateral damage. The Germans and Japanese learned...who knows?...they may learn also, and turn their efforts on each other since they just want to kill.

That's all those Muslim pr*cks understand. Death.

America is burning to death because of the abdication
of Congress to TREASON rampant.

When you appease the mad muzzies they see it as a sign of weakness. When you oppose them and make it harder for them they go elsewhere.

It's really very simple. Bury them with a little pig guts in their coffin or keep attending our own funerals.There is no in-between.

Finally a voice of sanity. While there are many moderate muslims in the cult of islam they do not rule the roost. They do not call the shots. The radicals do.So dealing with moderates is a waste of time.

V.I. Lenin has a famous dictum about his Communist movement in the early days before the Bolshevik revolution. In order to be safe, he said that is forces need to probe with a bayonet, all the time, constantly testing to see what kind of opposition (from the Czarist forces) is out there. He said, that if you meet mush in your probings, continue on forward parring ahead of yourself, making progress against the enemy. He stated that if you meet cold steel, retreat temporarily and hold back until you can begin probing again. Always probe and test your advisory in this manner and you are sure to win.

This is Islam as well. Constantly testing your will. Meet them with steel and they fall back though temporarily. Look at Afghanistan and Iraq. They retreated but are probing again. Same in every corner of the world.

Not sure if the pig guts are effective enough. I heard that there is a new pig fat coated bullet on the market.

Now that's a bullet that will be in high demand!

Just ask Gen. Black Jack Pershing how well pig guts work,they worked then and will work now as well.The islamo cultits are not big fans of pigs.

I originally had the suspicion of either them or the wetbacks since they were caught in the act in a few fires in Cochise County as a diversionary tactic, but eyewitnesses say it was started from a lightning strike. Having lived in the most prolific area for dry lightning strikes, Huachuca Mountains (Place of Thunder) I could easily give them a pass on this one but with their history, off with their heads using a pork blood stained knife.

Is Al Qaeda setting forest fires in US?

Jun 7, 2012: Snip: In early May my mom called from five states away and asked, “Are the fires getting close to you?” I told her they weren’t, but that night I did see flames in the mountains. And by the time May was over, fires were burning in California, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Minnesota, Florida, and beyond.

Because there is at least a chance that one of these fires is part of a larger attack on the U.S. And attacks don’t have to be nuclear, biological, or suicidal to be terrorism.

Al Qaeda magazine calls for firebomb campaign in US

May 2, 2012: Snip: But issue nine carries equally lethal advice, with "It Is of Your Freedom to Ignite a Firebomb," which gives detailed instructions on how to ignite an "ember bomb" in a U.S. forest, recommending Montana because of the rapid population growth in wooded areas.

They’re so stupid! How stupid ARE they you ask?

They’re SO stupid they couldn’t set a prayer rug on fire inside a mosque.

Prove me wrong, muzzie, prove me wrong.

Track them down, arrest them, convict them from their own admissions in taking “credit,” and hang ‘em high, every last one of them.
