Skip to comments.Threat Matrix: Daily Terror Threat - August 2006

And I thank you for pointing to this article freeperfromnj.
Current as of: Saturday - 12 August 2006 GMT The Current Time is: 03:44 GMT
0105: (Update with details) Pakistani officials stated that two Britons of Pakistani decent were arrested last week - about eight to ten days ago - in a coordinated operation to foil a plot to blow up Transatlantic airliners. The detainees were from Karachi and Lahore.
The Pakistan Daily Times has a disturbing news item, ignored in Britain's mainstream media, which casts further doubt about the integrity of some of the Muslim charities in Britain.
We reported that 24 suspects had been arrested in Britain in connection with the AKI reported that Pakistani authorities announced that two British citizens were recently arrested in Pakistan, in connection with the plot. "The two British citizens were arrested 8-10 days ago, one in Karachi and the other in Lahore," a statement claimed. The men had travelled to Pakistan from Britain, and had already made their farewell martyrdom tapes.
Now the Daily Times reveals that the two men, and also a third man of Kashmiri origin who lived in Islamabad, received large donations from a British charity. These donations were to be used for financing the plot to bring down the planes with liquid explosives.
Decoder rings out and ready.....
Tony Snow said THAT will be dealt with in the 2nd part of the agreement.......FWIW!
Stunning turn of events isn't it MamaD? I can't believe the two soldiers release will be dealt with later. Argggggg.
One news source (don't recall which one) mentioned the cell phones purchased were all capable of being on a specific frequency.
WASHINGTON - Investigators have zeroed in on a British Muslim with possible al-Qaida ties as a potential mastermind of what they describe as the foiled plot to detonate explosives on as many as a dozen U.S.-bound airliners.
Rashid Rauf, who was arrested in Pakistan about a week ago, has been linked to al-Qaida by Pakistani authorities and is believed to have guided planning for the attack.
"That's the guy to go after. Rauf is the key," said a U.S. intelligence official. The official described Rauf as "very competent" and skilled in both planning and operational details. Pakistan Interior Minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao said Friday that Rauf was connected to al-Qaida but offered no further information. U.S. authorities said they still don't know enough to determine any precise relationship between Rauf and al-Qaida.
"He's spoken to somebody, but we are not sure who," the intelligence official said. "That's part of the reason he is a key. "Was it al-Qaida or al-Qaida-inspired? That is still being assessed."
Rauf is a new face to investigators and represents a new kind of problem in tracking terrorists, the official said: "Is there a new generation coming along, or are they those who were not previously identified. Are they being directed by (al-Qaida) central or just what?" Rauf was arrested on a tip from British authorities, according to Pakistan's Foreign Ministry.
I was "listening" to TV and radio today while doing housework. It was mentioned that Olmert faced overthrow on one of them. Another mentioned nostalgia for Sharon's leadership.
EXCELLENT FIND Oorang! Ties in with current events pretty well doesn't it?
That's the same way I feel. It's kind of like putting the cart ahead of the horse. The kidnapping of the two soldiers precipitated events afterwards.....it doesn't make sense to me why they'd agree without having the soldiers returned first. The soldiers may have been executed or tortured - and if so, how will Israeli's react?

A suspected piece of luggage on Friday triggered a bomb alarm leading to the evacuation of Berlin's main railway station, media reports said.
A team of explosive experts are investigating the suitcase which was discovered on the lower levels of the railway station.
Police evacuated several floors of the new train station which was inaugurated in May.
Regular train traffic was not affected by the bomb alarm.
Hopefully, on Sunday, Ohlmert's cabinet will vote "no" to the resolution and they will finish the job once and for all.
Snip: A HIGH-LEVEL conference examining the roots of Islamic terrorism was cancelled at two days' notice after fears a rogue speaker was planning to whip up hatred.
Police chiefs in Lambeth discovered the individual had made inflammatory remarks in the past and were worried he might use the Lambeth Town Hall event as a platform to repeat them.
Snip: Last night, the Manchester Evening News reported that a Muslim airline captain became the first victim to a backlash against the terror alert at Britain's airports, when he was hauled off a flight as it prepared to leave for the US.
Amar Ashraf, who was off-duty, was said to be settling in his seat as a stand-by passenger on the Continental Airlines' flight from Manchester to Newark when a stewardess said he had to get off.
The 28-year old pilot said he was later told that US aviation security chiefs had ordered his removal from the jet, even though he has been security vetted for his job with one of Continental's partner airlines.
The aircraft had already pulled away from its stand at Manchester Airport and was getting ready to taxi to the runway when he was led away and his bags were taken from the hold.
Ashraf, originally from Wrexham in Wales, said that he felt "very demoralized" when he was told to get off the aircraft. "I must have met the profile on the day. I have an Arabic name, I am a Muslim, I'm from Britain and I know how to fly," he said.
Thank you nw.
As always, you are so right, Fair Opinion.
Article snippet: "Tehran, 8 August (AKI) - An Iranian hardline Islamist journalist claims she has recruited 56,000 Iranians, a third of them women, to carry out suicide attacks against American, British and Israeli targets."
"Allah's widow" is her moniker?
So, if she is "Allah's Widow" that
makes "Allah" a dead guy.
Well, pbuh, maybe she wants to
join him soon.
Yep, yep, jihaaaaaad.
Funny how they never report if explosives were actually in the luggage that triggered the alarm!

Snip: Carrying signs that denounced Israel and the Bush government, about seventy-five Muslims held a demonstration in San Francisco to protest the escalating violence in the Middle East.
Snip: THERE are growing concerns within the Irish intelligence services that Islamic terrorists could hijack Irish flights bound for Britain.
Yep, I think I first started hearing about the 2 guys in Dawn or one of those interesting sites. Apparently, the Pakistanis have 17 in custody last I heard, but I thnk only 2 are British Pakistanis.
I'm ready for Netinnayu (sp?) to take over, but I'm not an Israelite so it's up to them to choose as they so desire.
