Palestinian Imam: ‘Obama Will Soon Hang Together with Bush’

05/03/2011 1 comment

By Elior Levy – “An imam from the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem vowed to take revenge over ‘the western dogs’ for killing Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in Pakistan on Sunday.

In a Youtube video uploaded by the imam he said: ‘The western dogs are rejoicing after killing one of our Islamic lions. From Al-Aqsa Mosque, where the future caliphate will originate with the help of God, we say to them – the dogs will not rejoice too much for killing the lions. The dogs will remain dogs and the lion, even if he is dead, will remain a lion.”‘

The imam then verbally attacked US President Barack Obama saying: ‘You personally instructed to kill Muslims. You should know that soon you’ll hang together with Bush Junior.’

We are a nation of billions, a good nation. We’ll teach you about politics and military ways very soon, with god’s help,’ he vowed.”  Read more.

White House to Release Death Photo of Osama Bin Laden; Update: Nevermind

05/03/2011 Leave a comment

President Obama has decided that he will release at least one photo of Osama Bin Laden after his recent death by US Navy SEALs.  Will it put conspiracy theorists to rest?  Details coming soon …

Panetta: “The government obviously has been talking about how best to do this, but I don’t think there was any question that ultimately a photograph would be presented to the public.” (Source)

Update:  Obama changes his mind, doesn’t want to release evidence proving Bin Laden’s death.  It might be ‘inflammatory.’  Killing the terrorist is perfectly ok, but showing a picture will hurt other terrorist’s feelings.

Obama: I won’t release bin Laden death photos – “In an interview with Steve Kroft for this Sunday’s “60 Minutes” conducted today, President Obama said he won’t release post-mortem images of Osama bin Laden taken to prove his death.”  Read more.

UK Cleric: Jihad Ultimately Coming to ‘Heart of America’

05/03/2011 Leave a comment

WND – “The death of Osama bin Laden will bring a ‘new era of jihad,’ predicted British extremist cleric Anjem Choudary.

Warning there are motivated jihadists ‘in the heart of America,’ Choudary said al-Qaida will likely carry out revenge operations with ‘meticulous accuracy’ and ‘devastating affect’ comparable to that of the 9/11 attacks.

Choudary is the founder and former chief of two Islamic groups disbanded by the British authorities under anti-terror legislation.

Speaking today in an interview with ‘Aaron Klein Investigative Radio’ of New York’s WABC Radio, Choudary said that while bin Laden was a ‘lion of Islam … there are many lions waiting to take his place.’

‘I do believe that the death of Sheikh Osama will bring in a new era of jihad,’ Choudary told Klein.

‘Post-Osama bin Laden, I believe the mujahedeen around the world will have something to prove, that the jihad is not about an individual.’

Choudary said instability for U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan ‘will be a complete nightmare after this event.’

Asked whether he believes al-Qaida is planning revenge attacks, the British extremist speculated the global jihad group ‘will have their own emergency meetings and they will plan their own response.’

Continued Choudary: ‘It may be in the short-term or it may be in the long-term, but ultimately, we know that when they decide on an operation, that most likely it will be fulfilled with meticulous accuracy and with devastating effect.’

‘We saw that with 9/11,’ he added.

Choudary said worldwide jihad “at the current time is spread right from Australia all the way to the heart of Europe and into the United States.”

‘There are many people who believe in the phenomenon of jihad which has been franchised as well from al-Qaida. … And these people live in the heart of Europe and they live in the heart of America.'”  Read more.

By Jibran Khan – “Lahore (AsiaNews) – Tensions are running high in Gujranwala, a town in the Pakistani province of Punjab, recent scene of repeated attacks by Muslim extremists against the Christian minority. Yesterday, a mob attacked Christian homes and places of worship, setting fire to a number of churches. Only the action of police prevented any loss of life and injuries.

Scared for their lives, many families fled the area. Meanwhile, the authorities have begun enforcing Section 144 of the Pakistan Penal Code to limit public assemblies to a maximum of four people.”  Read more.

Mississippi River to Exceed 1927 Flood Levels

05/03/2011 Leave a comment

By Greg Hilburn – “Mississippi River levels will reach an all-time high this month, exceeding even the great flood of 1927, according to a new forecast by the National Weather Service, but U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials said Louisiana’s levees should contain the rising waters.

The new forecast issued Monday raised the crest 4 more feet at Vicksburg, Miss., to 57.5 feet on May 18, The 1927 crest was 56.2 feet. Flood stage is 43 feet.

But the corps’ Robert Simrall was quick to point out the Louisiana levee system is higher than in 1927.

‘These levees are designed to contain this flood,’ Simrall said.

Still, even corps officials like Simrall were surprised by the new crest prediction.

‘It would be more water than we’ve ever had,’ he said. ‘I’ve worked here more than 25 years and I never thought I’d see this.'”  Read more.

Smaller Earthquakes in El Paso, TX Could Mean A Large One Is Coming

05/03/2011 Leave a comment

“EL PASO, Texas — In the past week, the El Paso region has had four earthquakes at least 4.2 in scale. Seismologist Aaron Velasco tells KFOX14 the earthquakes could foreshadow a large scale earthquake in El Paso.

These earthquakes all happened in a remote area of Chihuahua, Mecico. They were still pretty close to the U.S. border.

Most El Pasoans KFOX 14 spoke with said they never worry about earthquakes because they don’t think we’re on a fault line. Velasco said the mountains in El Paso are proof that we are on one or more fault lines. ‘The hazard is not zero here in El Paso,” said Velasco. “It’s low compared to California and Japan, but at any particular time that means that we could have an earthquake.'”  Read more.

Final Bin Laden Doomsday Tape May Be Released by Al Qaeda Disciples; U.S. Officials Fear Backlash

05/03/2011 Leave a comment

BY Bill Hutchinson – “A doomsday tape made by Osama Bin Laden was poised to be released Monday by his Al Qaeda disciples.

U.S. officials feared the recording would be akin to a voice from the grave calling for a do-or-die jihad against the West, a final order of a terrorist madman.

Just a day after U.S. Navy SEALs raided Bin Laden’s luxury hideout in Pakistan and snuffed him out, media outlets were weighing whether to air a tape that could boost his legacy as a martyr.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said he was getting bombarded with Twitter messages from viewers pleading with the network not to air Bin Laden’s propaganda.

Blitzer’s colleague Anderson Cooper said he sided with those who had no desire to hear from a hater.

‘Bin Laden a mass murderer who should never be heard from again,’ Cooper said Monday.

It was unclear whether the tape is audio or video, but a U.S. official said intelligence indicates Bin Laden ordered it to be released in the event of his death.”  Read more.
