    A NEW breed of homegrown 'twentysomething terrorists' is poised to strike at Indonesia's international hotels with a wave of suicide bombings in December. These new generation Jemaah Islamiah terrorists are every bit as deadly and fanatically anti-American as captured leaders Hambali and Imam Samudra, said intelligence sources. The Sunday Times understands that 12 of them, drawn from six terrorist cells in Indonesia, plan to turn the festive December season into a bloody nightmare. Sources disclosed that at a meeting of JI leaders in East Kalimantan in March, Zulkarnaen, their new chief, and Azahari Husin, JI's master bomb-maker, chose the...

    Al-Muhajiroun, the extremist Muslim group that used the second anniversary of the September 11 atrocities last week to praise the "Magnificent 19" hijackers, is facing eviction from its London offices. The landlord of the business centre in Tottenham, north London, where al-Muhajiroun has rented premises since December 2001, said yesterday it had begun legal action to evict the organisation. The Workplace Group, which owns business property across London, acted after al-Muhajiroun praised the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington as "a good deed". The company said the offices had been rented by Anjem Choudary, a chief spokesman for al-Muhajiroun,...

    The imperial retreat begins Posted: September 8, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 We cannot do it by ourselves in Iraq. We need help. That is the message sent in the clear to the Mideast and the world by our going back to the United Nations to ask for troops and aid in Iraq. Our enemies can read that message as well as our friends. The four suicide bombings – of the Jordanian embassy, the U.N. headquarters, the mosque in Najaf, the headquarters of the Iraqi police in Baghdad – in one month underscored it. We do not have...

    I was in the White House Rose Garden Friday for the Bush – Abbas meeting. I watched as President Bush spoke and then observed him as he listened to Abbas. I really sense he thinks he can “will” peace into place with rhetoric, charm, creativity, military might and money. It appears Bush believes he can use his diplomatic skills to reverse thousands of years of hatred, and bring peace to the Middle East. I observed Colin Powell (a few feet to my left) using his charm as he mingled with five members of the Palestinian Cabinet. He shook their hands...

    Of the variegated forms of murderous assault that the Palestinian Arabs have unleashed against Israel since they began the Al-Aqsa Intifada—the Oslo War—in September 2000, none has proved so cruel or lethal, or so perfectly embodied absolute evil, as suicide bombings. Certainly none has exercised so hypnotic a spell upon the “learned classes.” Since the beginning of Arafat’s campaign to “soften up” Israel for concessions even more far-reaching than those of the Oslo Accords, 294 suicide bombers (as of mid-May) have succeeded in detonating themselves—in crowded buses and cafes, in university cafeterias, at a Passover seder, and almost any place...

    The new Imam of the Grand Mosque of Rome, the largest in Europe, called for the "victory of Islamic fighters in Palestine, Chechnya and other areas of the world" in his sermon last Friday.

    Abbas Meets With Leaders of Hamas By IBRAHIM BARZAKAssociated Press Writer GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP)--Hamas leaders told the Palestinian prime minister in a first meeting Thursday that they would consider halting attacks on Israeli civilians if the Israeli military stops hunting suspected Palestinian militants. Israel has turned down such a proposal in the past. The military, meanwhile, announced it had foiled plans to set up a ``bomb school'' in the Gaza Strip. Israel's navy intercepted a boat carrying a Hezbollah bomb expert, CD-ROMs with instructions for suicide bombers and rocket detonators. Israel alleged Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat had ties...

    May. 20, 2003 US supports Palestinian premier despite terror wave By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Washington A rash of deadly terror attacks on Israel has not shaken the Bush administration's confidence in Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas as a leader who will strive to get the violence under control. State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said Monday that he had "seen nothing to put in doubt his commitment," although he urged Abbas to take immediate and decisive action to eradicate the terrorism infrastructure. "We recognize that this is a very difficult task," Boucher said. And yet, he said, "it's imperative that the...

    May. 20, 2003 Britain: Morocco blasts undermine peace process By DOUGLAS DAVIS British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw has suggested that the 12 suicide bombings in Casablanca on Friday which killed 41 people might have been related to Morocco's support for the peace process. "It is not accidental that we have had these terrorist outrages directed at Morocco, one of the most modern and advanced of Arab societies, and also the terrorist outrages in Israel timed to kill Israelis but also to undermine the peace process." Straw's remarks coincided with a visit to London on Tuesday by Moroccan Foreign Minister Mohammed...

During each radio contact with the units concerned ambulances, logistics, company commanders Coffey would speak quietly...

    BEIRUT, March 13: The head of Lebanon's Hezbollah warned Washington on Thursday that its forces would be met with suicide attacks, and not flowers, if it invaded Iraq. "Don't expect the people of this region to receive you with flowers and perfume," Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah said while addressing a sea of people who filled the streets of Beirut's southern suburbs for an Ashura meeting. "The people of this region will receive you with rifles, blood, arms, martyrdom and martyrdom operations," he said. Nasrallah's comments came in response to remarks from officials in Washington that Iraqi citizens would welcome a U.S....
