British Airways Baggage Handler ‘Who Was Groomed to be a Terrorist’ Claims He Was Sacked for Being a Muslim

I don’t think the victim card is gonna work. At least not this time …

By EDDIE WRENN – “A ‘terrorist sympathiser’ linked to a notorious airline bomb plot is claiming he was unfairly sacked as a British Airways baggage handler because of his religion.

Counter terrorist police found an apparent plan to groom Shahzada Khan to place a package on a plane bound for America.

During an investigation into Rajib Karim, who was jailed for 30 years last March for plotting to place a bomb on an airplane heading to America, police discovered emails between Karim and Khan, as well as emails between Karim and hate-preacher Anwar al-Awlaki.

Cracking the heavily-encrypted emails, police suspected Karim and al-Awlaki were grooming Khan to help them smuggle a bomb onto an American-bound plane.

When police checked Khan’s computer, they discovered speeches by Osama Bin Laden and al-Awlaki, the tribunal heard.

There were also clips of ‘martyrdom’ and explosions interspersed with an image of a BA executive clubcard.

A PDF file was being downloaded when officers arrived at Khan’s home in Slough, which described America as: ‘The land of shame, crime, vile, filth and evil.'” Read more.


‘Nic Fit Saudi’ Lead Oregon Police on Grand Theft Auto Chase, Tried to Run Down Pedestrian Prior to Houston Flight Freakout

Here’s an update on this story. Nicotine. That’s one crazy drug …

By MARK DUELL and MICHAEL ZENNIE – “Being physically suppressed by airplane passengers after he had been shouting ‘Allah is great’ was a fitting end to a very bad week for one unruly Saudi teen.

The plane incident came just two days after Yazeed Mohammed Abunayyan, 19, was arrested after causing a ‘Grand Theft Auto’-style police chase, during which he rammed two squad cars and tried to run down a pedestrian — all while grinning wildly.

He was out on $65,000 bail when he boarded the plane in Portland, Oregon on Tuesday, but that didn’t stop him from getting into even more trouble.

Abunayyan started screaming when a flight attendant asked him to turn off his electronic cigarette and began causing a ruckus on the Continental Airlines flight bound for Houston, Texas.

Passengers say he started screaming, punching at the woman and singing or muttering about dead Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

‘He was screaming: ‘Allah is great, Allah is great’. It kind of worries you when that happens,’ passenger Nancy Haywood told CBS affiliate KHOU.” Read more.

Nigeria: Islamists Slit Throat of Pastor’s 79-Year-Old Christian Mother, Note Left Reading ‘We Will Get You Soon’

AP – “MAIDUGURI, Nigeria — Police discovered the body of a 79-year-old Christian woman killed in northeast Nigeria, with a note in Arabic left on her chest reading: ‘We will get you soon,’ a witness said Thursday.

The slaying raises religious tensions in Nigeria as a radical Islamist sect increasingly targets Christians in its bloody attacks. While police said they knew of no immediate suspects in the killing, witnesses blamed the attack on the sect known as Boko Haram, which has been blamed for killing at least 305 people this year alone, according to an Associated Press count.

The dead woman was identified as Shetu Haruna Malgwi, a Christian living in the city of Maiduguri in Nigeria’s Muslim north. Assailants apparently attacked Malgwi on Wednesday, a day after she returned home from receiving an eye treatment in the city of Kaduna, Borno state police spokesman Samuel Tizhe said.

Her killers slit the woman’s throat, then wrote a note with red pen they left on her chest, witness Audu Ibrahim said. Ibrahim said the woman’s family believes the message is for her son, who is a pastor of a local church where the 79-year-old sang in the choir.

Authorities found a Bible placed under the woman’s feet, Ibrahim said. Police continue to investigate the killing and no arrests have been made, Tizhe said.” Read more.

Official Palestinian Authority TV Glorifies Violence and Martyrdom … and ‘Fertilizer’

It’s a good thing the Palestinian Authority is a moderate Muslim organization, and not like ancient heathens seeking to sacrifice their children to a false god. Otherwise, they’d also be making outrageous claims like Palestinian children are “fertilizer” created to saturate the land with blood or something …

Lyrics: “Palestine is a state built on struggle, With the Martyr’s blood, with gunfire, It [Palestine] will restore the plant to its land, It will bring home those who are distant, It will return the stolen [property] to its inhabitants, So that Arab honor will not be degraded, O treacherous aggressor, O sinner (Israel), We will rise like the sun, shining on dry grass.”

Hey, wait a minute …

‘March to Jerusalem’ Wants To Bring One Million Arabs From Surrounding Nations to March on Israel’s Borders on March 30, 2012

Zechariah 12:2-3, “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah [and] against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”

By Rachel Hirshfeld – “An attempt is being made by the BDS movement to have a ‘Global March to Jerusalem’ on March 30, to coincide with the so-called ‘Palestinian Land Day,’ in a repeat of the failed Naqba Day attempt last year.

‘The concept behind it is to have a million people marching on Israel’s borders from all the surrounding countries – Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt,’ CiF Watch reported.

The BDS movement declares, ‘Commemorating Land Day, the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC) invites people of conscience around the world to unite for a BDS Global Day of Action on 30 March 2012 in solidarity with the Palestinian people’s struggle for freedom, justice and equality and for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel.’

The project’s official website says:

‘The march will confirm that the policies and practices of the racist Zionist state of Israel against Jerusalem and its people are a crime not only against Palestinians but against all humanity.’

The CiF Watch reported that the ‘results are therefore likely to be grave…The leaders of the ‘Global March to Jerusalem’ are very much aware of [its] links to proscribed terrorist groups, and yet its endorsers include a rather predictable list of organizations and US and other nationals, including a UN employee and a former British MP.’

Israel, like any other sovereign country, cannot permit any type of attack on its borders, threatening its right to self-defense and autonomy as an independent state.” Read more.

Turkey: Turkish Defense Minister Announces Plan to Purchase 100 F-35 Fighter Jets From the United States

02/23/2012 Leave a comment

Defense Minister İsmet Yılmaz announced on Thursday that Turkey will purchase 100 Lockheed Martin F-35 fighter jets from the US. Responding to a parliamentary question from Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) member İsmet Büyükataman on whether Turkey will stick to its plan to buy F-35s, Yılmaz said, ‘We are not currently considering abandoning the purchase of the planes,’ in a written statement.

He said Turkey will buy 100 F-35 jets from the US at a cost of $16 billion. Two of the planes have been initially ordered for delivery in 2015. Turkey announced in March 2011 that the planned purchase of fighter jets from the US was put on hold because the Pentagon refused to share the source code used in the software designed for the aircraft, as well as the codes that might be used to externally activate the planes.

The purchase comes as part of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program, an international program consisting of partnerships between a number of countries. Turkey is expected to purchase 100 F-35 jets as part of the project, worth $16 billion.” Read more.

Flashback: Turkey set to sign military pact with Egypt after cutting frayed ties with Israel – “A military and economic alliance with Egypt is set to be signed by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The deal should be clinched when Erdogan visits Cairo next Monday – the first such visit paid by a Turkish prime minister in 15 years. The alliance is not intended as ‘revenge’ against Israel; Erdogan’s intention is to extend Turkey’s influence to areas it has not reached in past decades.” Read more.

Flashback: US: Defense Department Authorizes Sale of 125 M1A1 Tanks and Other Weapons and Equipment to Egypt – “While everyone in Washington was concentrating on the debt crisis this week, the Obama administration attempted to slip through a questionable arms deal that requires serious scrutiny. Though it got little attention, the Defense Department officially notified Congress on Friday that it was authorizing the sale of 125 M1A1 tanks to Egypt as well as other weapons, equipment, parts, training and logistical support. While most of the military sales to Egypt have sailed through without objection in the more than 30 years since it signed a peace deal with Israel, this is the first such sale since the fall of the Mubarak regime earlier this year.” Read more.

Flashback: Turkey Installing New Military Tech That Will Allow Warplanes and Ships to Target Israel as the Enemy – “In yet another sign of the deterioration in Israel-Turkish ties, Turkey’s Star Gazete reported Tuesday that the military is installing new technology that will allow warplanes and ships to target Israeli vessels. Previously, Turkish planes, ships and submarines used American technology, which automatically classified Israeli equipment as ‘friendly.’ The new system, developed in Turkey, will allow the Turkish military to decide which targets to label as friendly. The switch was pioneered by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s regime.” Read more.

Flashback: Turkey: Israel No Longer A ‘Friend’, ‘It’s Time For Israel To Pay The Price’, Israeli Ambassador and Diplomats Expelled – “Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu announced on Friday that following Jerusalem’s adamant refusal to apologize over the 2010 Gaza flotilla raid, Ankara will be downgrading its diplomatic relations with Israel and suspending key military agreements. In a dramatic turn of events, Turkey announced that it was expelling Israeli Ambassador Gabby Levy from Ankara. Davutoglu said Turkey’s diplomatic representation in Israel would be further reduced to second-secretary level. In accordance, all lower Israeli diplomatic personnel above the second-secretary level have also been expelled.” Read more.

Iranian Widow: My Scientist Husband ‘Sought Israel’s Annihilation’, Formerly Secret Telexes Offer Window Into Iran’s Nuclear Deceit

02/23/2012 Leave a comment

By Gil Ronen – “The wife of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, an Iranian nuclear scientist who was assassinated in Tehran in January, said Tuesday that her husband ‘sought the annihilation of the Zionist regime wholeheartedly,’ according to Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency.

“Mostafa’s ultimate goal was the annihilation of Israel,” the agency quoted Fatemeh Bolouri Kashani as saying Tuesday.

Bolouri Kashani also underlined that her spouse ‘loved any resistance figure in his life who was willing to fight the Zionist regime and supported the rights of the oppressed Palestinian nation.’

The report belies attempts by Iran to claim that its nuclear program is not military in nature.

Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan is described as ‘a chemistry professor and a deputy director of commerce at Natanz uranium enrichment facility.’

Fars says he was killed by Mossad agents, who used a method of attack similar to that used against Iranian nuclear scientist Massoud Ali Mohammadi in January 2010, as well as scientists Fereidoun Abbassi Davani and Majid Shahriari. Abbasi Davani survived the attack, but Shahriari died. Yet another Iranian scientist, Dariush Rezaeinejad, was assassinated by the same method in July of 2011.” Source – Arutz Sheva.

Formerly secret telexes offer window into Iran’s nuclear deceit – “The reason for the unusual purchase — 220 pounds of highly caustic fluorine gas — was never explained, but someone at Iran’s Sharif University was clearly anxious to collect. For months, the mysterious buyer bombarded a British supply company with telexes, demanding to know when his 45 canisters would arrive. ‘We have not received your reply,’ complained one telex, sent from the Tehran school’s purchasing department and written partly in broken English. ‘We are awaiting for hearing from you as soon as possible.’ But the telex, sent in 1992 and made public here for the first time, was not what it seemed. The real purchaser was not a university but a secretive research institute working for Iran’s military. The fluorine gas, investigators later concluded, was to be blended with uranium in a nuclear program that would remain hidden for 10 more years.” Read more.
