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.

Coalition, Iraqi Forces Detain Terrorists; Iraqis Killed in IED Attack

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Nov. 29, 2006 – Coalition forces killed six Iraqis in a firefight, and Iraqi forces detained two suspected terrorists in separate operations this week, military officials reported.

Six Iraqis were killed in conjunction with a firefight in the hostile Hamaniyah area of northeastern Ramadi yesterday.

Before dawn, coalition forces discovered an improvised explosive device in Hamaniyah. The patrol spotted two insurgents moving away from the trigger site. The two men took up positions on the roof of a house and observed the coalition forces clearing the explosive device.

As coalition forces cleared the bomb, the insurgents engaged the security element with small-arms fire. After establishing positive identification, coalition forces returned fire with small-arms and machine-gun fire. As the insurgents continued to engage the patrol, coalition forces returned fire with main-tank-gun rounds.

Coalition forces conducted an extensive search of the house and found one boy and five girls, ages ranging from infant to teenaged, dead. One woman injured at the scene refused treatment. According to local residents, the house was a known insurgent safe house. Officials believe one of the insurgents was wounded and other insurgents came to remove him from the scene.

"In a very tragic way, today reminds us that insurgents' actions throughout Iraq are felt by all," coalition spokesman Marine Lt. Col. Bryan Salas said. "Efforts are under way to coordinate and offer available assistance to surviving family members."

In another operation, Iraqi army soldiers of the 2nd Brigade, 9th Iraqi Army Division, detained two local citizens on a motorcycle carrying three mortar rounds and a large sum of money in Taji Nov. 27. The two suspects were placed into custody after allegedly firing two mortar rounds into the 2nd Iraqi Brigade's area of operations. The suspects were passing through an Iraqi checkpoint at the time of their detention. Iraqi army soldiers were conducting a reconnaissance mission in the area after discovering mortar rounds had been fired in their vicinity. The two men were apprehended during this recon.

Elsewhere, five Iraqi civilians were killed and 25 others were injured during an IED attack Nov. 27 in a cell phone store in Muqdadiyah. The attack took place at around 4 p.m., when an undetermined number of insurgent forces entered the cell phone shop, shot and killed the owner, then placed the IED inside the store. The IED exploded when a crowd of civilians gathered near the shop.

The Muqdadiyah Iraqi police responded to the attack, where they found four local civilians dead and 26 injured. Four were treated for minor injuries on site and released, and 21 others were taken to Forward Operating Base Normandy, where they received medical treatment by medics from 6th Battalion, 9th Armored Reconnaissance Squadron, 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division. One of the injured civilians died before arriving at the medical facility.

"Iran issues death fatwa on Azeri writer"

"Iran issues fatwa on Azeri writer"
By Frances Harrison
BBC News in Teheran

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "One of Iran's most senior clergymen has issued a fatwa on an Azeri writer said to have insulted the Prophet Muhammad.

The call on Muslims to murder Rafiq Tagi, who writes for Azerbaijan's Senet newspaper, echoes the Iranian fatwa against Indian writer Salman Rushdie.

It was issued by the conservative Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Fazel Lankarani."


ARTICLE SNIPPET #2: "They accuse the Azeri writer of portraying Christianity as superior to Islam and Europe as superior to the Middle East.

They allege that he has ridiculed all the sanctities of Islam and done it knowingly, fully aware of the consequences of his action.

In response, Grand Ayatollah Lankarani is said to have issued a fatwa calling for the death of the writer and also the person responsible for publishing his articles.

Earlier, an Iranian cleric had offered his house as a reward to anyone who killed the Azeri writer.

But this latest fatwa comes from one of the dozen or so Grand Ayatollahs in Iran, who has a large following.

An Azerbaijani court sentenced the writer Rafiq and his publisher to two months in jail for an article which was illustrated by the same cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad originally published in Denmark that caused outcry in the Muslim world."

5 Russians Detained Over Illegal Purchase of Portable Surface to Air Missiles
28.11.2006

Police detained five people trying to sell anti-aircraft missile systems in the South of Russia Monday, the Associated Press reports.

According to the statement of the regional police four Strela 2M missiles were seized from the criminals. The raid took place on Monday in the town of Adler, just south of the resort city of Sochi. Police has opened a criminal case against the criminals who are being accused of smuggling.

The heat-seeking Strela missiles are produced in Russia, Eastern Europe, China, Egypt and elsewhere and are the anti-aircraft weapon of choice for guerrillas, rebel forces and terrorists worldwide. Three years ago, the United States, Russia and 31 other countries declared the Strela missiles, which are small enough to pack in a suitcase, were a serious threat to civil aviation and agreed to take steps to keep terrorists from obtaining them.

Explosives missing at construction site (California)
Tuesday, November 28, 2006

Two packages containing 110 pounds of explosives were stolen over the weekend from a construction site in Menifee, a federal firearms official said Tuesday.

Workers arriving Monday at the site in the 25000 block of Newport Road found a chain-link fence broken and the door to the explosives magazine pried open, said Susan Raichel, spokeswoman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

An inventory of the materials later revealed that two 55-pound cases of Blastex blasting agent were missing, she said. The theft was reported about 6 a.m. Monday by an employee of the Edic and Watt Inc. construction company. The explosives are used for quarry and construction blasting, Raichel said.

"In the wrong hands, this could be dangerous," she said. "It could create a deadly result if someone doesn't know what they're doing."

ZAGREB, - The Croatian police said on Tuesday it had charged two Croatian men found armed with plastic explosives that was to be activated in the Adriatic port city of Zadar.

One of the men was seized early on Monday near a boarding dock for the ferry boat linking Zadar with Ancona in Italy. The other sped away by car but was stopped by police road blocks outside Zadar.

Residents use pig races to deter building of mosque
11/29/06

K.I.A., that's the Katy Islamic Association, plan to build a mosque here. "It's not an appropriate place to have a mosque or church," said resident Barbara Simpson. It isn't going over real well. "As a house of worship, they shouldn't be disturbing the peace and tranquility of 15 homes," said resident John Wetmore.

Neighbors tell us they're concerned about traffic and drainage and a little fear of the unknown. Some of the homeowners even offered to buy the land back for more than a million dollars. The K.I.A. doesn't seem very interested in the offers. "We're not going anywhere," said Katy Islamic Association member Alvi Muzfar.

So it seems the community at the end of Baker Road has a pretty good fight. But this fight has gone much farther than many between two neighbors. You see in these fights, sometimes neighbors throw mud at one another, in this instance they're wallowing in it.

Craig Baker owns pigs. He's the guy behind the second big yellow sign on Baker Road. That's the one announcing Friday night pig races. "What does it matter, I can do whatever I want with my land right," asked landowner Craig Baker.

Sure can.

But aren't pigs on the property line racing on a Friday night a little offensive to a Muslim neighbor?

"Christians must 'let go' some beliefs for sake of peace, theologian says"

By ANITA WADHWANI
Staff Writer

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "After five years of rising gas prices, disturbing privacy issues that followed the Sept. 11 attacks and the fear of terrorism, it became apparent that everyday life in Nashville is directly affected by religious conflicts in the Middle East and elsewhere, conference organizers said.

"We felt like the larger community is calling for this," said Larry Bridgesmith, executive director of Lipscomb's newly established Institute for Conflict Management.

Panelists representing different faiths presented their own views on how to begin to bridge the religious divide.

For Kahled Sakalla, a spokesman for the Islamic Center of Nashville, some of the answers lie in better education about Islam in the non-Muslim world."

British terror suspects lose extradition battle
The Daily Mail ^ | 30th November 2006

Posted on 11/30/2006 2:45:29 AM PST by Mrs Ivan

Two terrorist suspects today lost their High Court battle to avoid extradition to the U.S.. Lawyers for Haroon Rashid Aswat and Babar Ahmad argued that, despite U.S. assurances, there was 'a real risk' that the men would be mistreated, or tried and sentenced as enemy combatants if sent to America.

Dismissing their appeal, Lord Justice Laws, sitting in London with Mr Justice Walker, said the allegation that the US might violate undertakings given to the UK "would require proof of a quality entirely lacking here".

Ahmad, a computer expert from Tooting, south London, is accused of running websites inciting murder and urging Muslims to fight a holy war and also to raise money for the Taliban.

Aswat, a British man arrested in Africa, faces trial on charges of plotting to set up a camp in Bly, Oregon, to train fighters for war in Afghanistan. He has been fighting extradition to the US since being arrested in Zambia and held in the UK.

At a recent hearing, Edward Fitzgerald QC, appearing for both men, asked two senior judges to halt extradition, arguing there was a danger that their human rights would be abused, despite diplomatic assurances from the US Government.

The QC told Lord Justice Laws, sitting with Mr Justice Walker, that the men also faced the risk of extraordinary rendition - the process of removing terrorist suspects to third countries for interrogation - and being held in solitary confinement.

He said they were in danger of being indefinitely detained at Guantanamo Bay under a military order applying to foreign citizens, or tried and sentenced by a military commission as enemy combatants in what would amount to "a flagrant denial of justice" and European human rights laws.

Mr Fitzgerald told the judges they should not rely on assurances given by the Americans that the men would be treated fairly.

Russia starts supplies of Su-30 fighters to Venezuela

Russia starts supplies of Su-30 fighters to Venezuela

10:24 | 30/ 11/ 2006

MOSCOW, November 30 (RIA Novosti) - Russia has shipped the first two Su-30MK2 multi-role fighters to Venezuela under a contract signed in July 2006, an aircraft manufacturing industry official said Thursday.

Russia signed $1-billion contracts on supplies of 24 Su-30MK2 Flanker fighters and 30 helicopters to Venezuela prior to this year's visit to Russia by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, triggering criticism from Washington, which regards the Venezuelan regime as a potential security threat in the region.

"The first Su-30MK2 fighters for the Venezuelan air force have been transported to Moscow by an An-124 Condor transport plane, and later they will be shipped to Venezuela," the official said, adding that two more fighters will be delivered to the Latin American country by the end of 2006.

Russian-made fighters will substitute American F-16 and French Mirage fighters currently deployed by the Venezuelan air force.

The Su-30MK2 is an export version of a formidable Su-27 Flanker air-superiority fighter capable of accomplishing a wide variety of combat missions at significant distances from the home base, in any weather conditions and severe jamming environment, both by day and night.

"HIZBALLAH LATIN AMERICA RECEIVES NEWS OF THEIR FIRST SHAHEED"

SNIPPET - QUOTE:

Given the strong affinity that Hizballah Venezuela shows for the country's current President for Life™ Hugo Chavez, it seems likely that this story has been created to provide a pretext for future "Hizballah" attacks on US and/or Jewish interests in Latin America. Teodoro says as much:

...esta es la información que tenemos de fuente no oficial que remitió a este comando, de resultar cierto tomaremos acciones extremas y gravísimas contra intereses norte americanos y judíos en Venezuela, las acciones incluyen el uso de explosivo de alto poder de destrucción.

Syria Travel Warning
U.S. Embassy Damascus issued the following Warden Message on November 29, 2006:

This Warden Message is being issued to inform the American community of an incident which took place November 28, 2006 on the Syrian/Lebanese border crossing in which an alleged terrorist was killed. While we are still examining this incident, it does not appear to have been targeting American or western interests. Further, the American community should note that President George W. Bush will visit the region on November 29, 2006 and that such visits have the potential to be catalysts for anti-American actions in Syria including demonstrations and possibly terrorism.

The Embassy in Damascus was attacked by armed terrorists on September 12 and continues to be in a vulnerable location. We recommend that Americans residing in Syria review their planned movements and remain vigilant. We continue to encourage Americans citizens to review their individual security in view of the volatile security situation in the region.

For the latest security information, Americans should regularly monitor the Department's web site at http://travel.state.gov where the current Worldwide Caution Public Announcement, Travel Warnings and Public Announcements can be found. Up-to-date information on security can also be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll free in the U.S., or, for callers outside the U.S. and Canada, a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444. These numbers are available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday (except U.S. federal holidays).

Americans living or traveling in Syria are encouraged to register with the U.S. Embassy in Damascus through the State Department's travel registration website, https://travelregistration.state.gov, so that they can obtain updated information on travel and security within Syria. Americans in Syria without Internet access may register directly with the U.S. Embassy in Damascus.

N'djamena Disturbances Possible
The Regional Security Office at U.S. Embassy N'djamena reported the following:


The Embassy continues to receive reports of vehicles being commandeered by what appears to be Chadian military personnel. Most reported confiscations involve Chadian government vehicles. However, this afternoon an several suspected soldiers attempted to flag down an Embassy locally hired employee and take his US Government owned vehicle with green diplomatic license plates. When he stopped, they demanded his keys and attempted to pull him out of the vehicle. The employee was able to drive away unharmed. All are advised to stay indoors after dark, and avoid non-essential travel around N'Djamena for the coming days. Remember to lock your doors when traveling and be suspicious of impromptu roadblocks. Avoid traveling alone and report any incidents related to this activity immediately to the RSO or Post 1 at the Embassy (call 517009). Stay on well traveled roads if possible.

Please remain be vigilant, carry a reliable communication device and let others know where you are going and when you'll be back. An update to this message will be provided if necessary.

"Trudy Mathews said she was most proud of the legacy her son has left someone else. She remembers taking her son to renew his driver's license last year and asking him about his decision to become an organ donor."

"I asked him if he really wanted to do that, and he said, 'Sure, why wouldn't I? I don't need them, and it could save people.' That's exactly what has happened. His heart was matched right there at the hospital. And it's a good heart, a very good heart."

Thank you for linking this Cindy...just too sad for words. Still too many incidents of those in this world who are a waste of breath, who take the lives of wonderful, productive people. Hang em High and let the buzzards finish him off.

"Baker has long roots here, his family named the road and when the new neighbors moved in, he tells us, they asked him to move out."

"Basically that I should package up my family and my business and find a place elsewhere," said Baker. "That's ridiculous, they just bought the place one week prior and he's telling me I should think about leaving."

Thanks Oorang for this article...good luck to Mr. Baker and his neighbors. I would put up football stadium lighting, and charge admission for pig racing 7 nights a week. I would claim that MY religion required liberal spraying of pig excrement from crop dusters over my entire 11 acres at least once a day....yep...I would come up with more and more interesting ideas like this on a daily basis.
