Palestinian Jihadist Group Claims Credit For Arizona Wildfire That Killed 19 Firefighters


Even if they are not responsible, the fact that Islamic jihadists can so easily take credit for events that have resulted in mass death and destruction should be no surprise. Islam is, after all, symbolized in Scripture as a man called Death

Revelation 6:8a, “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him …”

By DAVID BARNETT, The Long War Journal – “A Palestinian jihadist group, Masada al Mujahideen, recently claimed credit for ongoing wildfires in Arizona in a statement posted to jihadist forums today. The statement, titled ‘Masada al-Mujahideen Fulfilled its Promise and Attacked America Again After the Expiration of the Period with Fires that Achieved Historic Results,’ was obtained and translated by the SITE Intelligence Group.

‘We had previously announced an unconventional war against the occupation state of Israel, and then we escalated this war to reach its main supporter, America, so that it receives a major share of it, which will destroy their flora and fauna, with permission from Allah and then with our hands,’ the group said.

The statement further said that the group targeted the United States ‘in order to make it clear and to make it know we can reach it when we warn it, and to make it certain that our hands don’t just reach it but also strike it.’

The group warned that the attacks ‘will not be the last…if America does not respond to our demands.’ The statement boasted that 19 firefighters had been killed in the fires.

Contrary to the claims of Masada al Mujahideen, authorities have said that they believe the fires were started as a result of lighting.

Today’s statement was not the first highly dubious claim by the jihadist group related to fires in the US. In January 2012, the group claimed credit for wildfires in Nevada.

According to SITE, in addition to claiming responsibility for fires in the US, the jihadist group has claimed credit for more than a dozen fires in Israel since 2010.” Read more.

Flashback: Israel: Massive Fires Engulf Jerusalem Following 200 Arson Attacks In Past 2 Weeks – “Who does this kind of thing? I just don’t get it. Setting fires on purpose… In the past, arson has been used as a form of nationalist struggle by Palestinians, a form of terror ‘lite,’ in as much as it usually results in property damage but not death (the Carmel Forest fire that has been at the center of the latest Comptroller’s lambasting of the Interior and Finance ministers was apparently started by accident, not arson).” Read more.

Flashback: Latest Al Qaeda Magazine Calls Upon American Muslims To Launch A ‘Firebomb’ Campaign Inside The US – “The men who launched al Qaeda’s English-language magazine may have died in a U.S. missile strike last fall, but ‘Inspire’ magazine lives on without them — and continues to promote jihadi attacks on Western targets, offering detailed advice on how to start huge forest fires in America with timed explosives and how to build remote-controlled bombs… ‘It Is of Your Freedom to Ignite a Firebomb,’ which gives detailed instructions on how to ignite an ‘ember bomb’ in a U.S. forest, recommending Montana because of the rapid population growth in wooded areas. ‘In America, there are more houses built in the [countryside] than in the cities,’ says the writer, who uses the pseudonym The AQ Chef.” Read more.

And we by this great event and paradigm shift declare the following: 1. we declare our full responsibility of setting fire in the Nevada forests in America. 2. we declare widening the area of war and transferring it currently to inside America and soon to elsewhere… ” Read more.

    Once again Obama is silent when it comes to Islamic jihad waged against Americans.
    Obama is just another Al Sharpton, wannabe. Anything that smacks of possible racism, Obama sticks his face right into it, in an effort to stoke the fires of racial discord. However, when it is Islam, he is either rushing to their defense or is MIA.
