EU Anti-Terror Chief: Europe Can Expect More Islamist Attacks, French Expert: Threat Is Greater Than 9/11

The article below focuses primarily on jihadists returning home from Syria, but the problem is much larger than hundreds of Syrian fighters finding their way back within Western borders. It’s also the hundreds of thousands of like-minded Muslims who are already within them

Qur’an Sura 4:76a, “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah …”

Flashback: “I Have Been Made Victorious With Terror” – Mohammed

By AFP and Arutz Sheva Staff – “Has Europe under-estimated the security threat posed by battle-hardened homegrown Islamic militants returning from Syria?

After the chance arrest in France of the suspected perpetrator of last week’s deadly shooting at a Jewish Museum in Brussels, concern mounted Monday that the region is ill-equipped to cope with the threat posed by homegrown Islamic militants returning from Syria’s battlefields.

Mehdi Nemmouche, a Frenchman who spent more than a year fighting in Syria, was detained on Friday in Marseille following a random customs check on the coach on which he had been traveling, which had started its journey in the Netherlands.

Nemmouche, 29, was carrying a Kalashnikov automatic rifle and a handgun, the same type of weapons used in the museum attack, and a camera which contained a 40-second film in which he appears to claim responsibility for a professionally-executed shooting which left three people dead and another man in a critical condition.

Police sources said Nemmouche had refused to say anything to his interrogators. His lawyer told AFP that, ‘in principle’ he would not oppose request for him to be handed over to the Belgian authorities.

Investigators are trying to establish if he acted entirely alone and if he was planning other attacks, as French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said was highly likely.

‘He was extremely dangerous,’ Cazeneuve said. ‘It was probable that he would have struck again.’

Questions meanwhile have begun to be raised about how an individual who had been known to the French security services was able to avoid surveillance following his return to Europe.

The DGSE intelligence agency had been notified of his return when he landed in Germany at the end of March.

Radicalized in prison, Nemmouche spent over a year fighting for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), the most radical of the jihadist groups in Syria which is closely aligned with Al Qaeda.

A European 9/11?

Europe can expect further ‘small-scale attacks’ like the fatal shooting at the Jewish Museum in Brussels, the EU’s anti-terror chief Gilles de Kerchove said Monday.

‘I don’t expect another 9/11,’ he said in a video statement. ‘I don’t expect a major sophisticated attack.’

‘I [do] expect more small-scale attacks like the one in Brussels,’ he added.

Not everyone agrees. French Al-Qaeda expert Jean-Pierre Filiu believes the threat posed by groups like ISIS, for Europe, is greater than that created by the Taliban’s sheltering of Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan prior to the 2001 attacks on New York.

‘Barack Obama said last week that a new September 11 is not possible in the United States. He was probably right because there are only a handful of American jihadists in Syria, but the danger of a European 9/11 is more real,’ Filiu said.” Read more.

Syria: Muslim Rebels Confiscate Christian Land, Homes In Raqqa Province

For peaceful purposes. Because the whole earth and everything in it belongs to “Allah” and his “prophet” and therefore, by extension, to all Muslims

Al Rod Al Anf, Volume 2, Page 182: “You see [our god Allah] will soon make you inherit their land, their treasures and make you sleep with their women.” – The “prophet” Mohammed

Revelation 9:21, “And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries [“φαρμακεία” – idolatry] or their sexual immorality or their thefts.”

Agenzia Fides – “The militiamen of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a Sunni jiahdist formation acting on the scenario of the Syrian conflict, confiscated houses and land belonging to Christian families in the area of Ein al-Issa, the area in the province of Raqqa inhabited mainly by Armenian Christians on Sunday, June 1st. According to Kurdish sources consulted by Fides Agency, the owners of the property confiscated by the Islamists were forced to leave the area.

The city and the area of Raqqa, in northern Syria, have long been under the control of the jihadists of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, that have already turned the main Armenian church in the capital in an office for the management of Islamic Affairs and for the promotion of the sharia.

In the past ISIL also organized symbolic actions, such as the burning of Bibles and Christian books. The kidnapping of the Roman Jesuit Paolo Dall’Oglio, who has been missing in Raqqa since early last August, has been attributed to members of this faction. At the beginning of 2014 other armed groups clashed militarily with the militiamen of ISIL, also accused by independent sources of imposing an oppressive and violent regime to the entire population of the area.” Source – Agenzia Fides.

Kentucky: Muslim “Refugee” Caught Stealing From Christian Ministry Trying To Help Him

06/03/2014 8 comments

Charged with theft and deception. Sounds an awful lot like the “prophet” of Islam himself …

Hadith Bukhari 2996, “… [Mohammed] said, ‘Become Muslim and you will be safe. Know that the earth belongs to Allah AND His Messenger. I want to expel you from this land. Whoever of you has some property should sell it. However, the earth belongs to Allah AND His Messenger.’”

WDRB – “A refugee living in Louisville is accused of stealing from an organization that was trying to help him.

According to the arrest warrant, Mustafa Abbas Shighain used a bank account number and routing number for Kentucky Refugee Ministries to pay his personal bills without consent. Kentucky Refugee Ministries relocates refugees from other countries into the Louisville area. The refugees are issued a check each month for $300 for living expenses.

Police say Shighain was a refugee when he began using the business routing number and bank account number to pay his own bills, including Time Warner and LG&E. He’s also accused of opening a Pay Pal account using the same routing number and account number, then trying to have money transferred from Kentucky Refugees Ministries’ account into the Pay Pal account, but the transaction was denied.

Police say Shighain also applied for and received a Speedway gas card in his own name using the Kentucky Refugees Ministries’ information.

According to arrest documents, an employee became suspicious of Shighain after the business received a letter from Pay Pal denying the transaction that Shighain had tried to make. An audit was conducted and the unauthorized transfers were uncovered.

Police say Shighain stole a total of $2,200 from the business.

Shighain was arrested on May 29 and charged with theft by deception and unlawful access to a computer.” Source – WDRB.

Flashback: Tennessee: Imam Calls Jews And Christians Filthy, Says Muslims Can Take Their Lives And Property In Jihad – “Abu Ammaar Yasir Qadhi, a Memphis Imam based in Tennessee, preaches openly about what Islam truly is. He makes no bones about thinking that anyone other than a Muslim doesn’t deserve anything and are less than Muslims. In fact, part of Yasir Qadhi’s preaching includes rhetoric that says non-Muslims lives are forfeit and their property is legal for Muslims to take in jihad, (and this would include women as sex slaves) Recently Yasir Qadhi said that ‘Jews and Christians filthy, their lives and property can be taken in jihad by the Muslims.’ Yasir Qadhi is not only a Memphil Imam, but is is also the Dean of Academic Affairs at the Al-Maghrib Institute.” Read more.

Egypt: Angry Mob Of Islamists Torch Christian Businesses Near Luxor

06/03/2014 1 comment

Hadith, Sahih Muslim 1:33a, “The Messenger of Allah said: ‘I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, and they establish [Islamic] prayer …”

JNS – “A mob of Islamists burned several Christian-owned shops in a wave of violence directed against Christians in southern Egypt near the ancient city of Luxor.

The attack came just hours before the start of a trial for a young Christian man who is facing blasphemy charges over a series of Internet postings, The Associated Press reported.

Egyptian Christians have been disproportionately targeted in blasphemy cases. According to the U.S. State Department, nearly 40 percent of the defendants in blasphemy cases in Egypt are Christians, despite the fact that Christians constitute about only 10 percent of the population.

Islamists have also increasingly targeted Christian churches, homes, and businesses, in addition to abducting Christians for ransom or conversion to Islam.

‘In only one province (El-Minia), its Coptic bishop recently revealed that between June 30 and the present time, he recorded 90 kidnap cases of Copts, some of whom have been killed even after their families paid the demanded ransom,’ Halim Meawad—the Egyptian-born co-founder of Coptic Solidarity, a U.S.-based international Coptic Christian human rights organization — recently told

In a wave of violence last August, the Muslim Brotherhood and its supporters attacked more than 200 churches, Christian businesses, and private homes, leaving at least seven Christians killed and hundreds injured.” Source – JNS.

Boutrous’s real name was not given for security purposes. ‘Leaders in the mosques were telling Muslims to attack Christians and kill them,’ he said. Boutrous and his father Iskander, both Christians, were in their family barber shop when a mob of Muslims attacked them. ‘They broke into the shop, took everything and burned the place down,’ Boutrous said …” Read more.

Indonesia: Muslim Mob Attacks Yet Another Christian Church … For Not Having Building Permit

06/03/2014 3 comments

And if it had a building permit they would have likely attacked those who granted it. For peaceful purposes. And then attack the church for not teaching Islam. For even more peaceful purposes …

Qur’an Sura 9:29, “[Mohammed said] Fight those who believe not in Allah … (even if they are) of the People of the Book [Christians], until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”

The Jakarta Post – “On the anniversary of the introduction of the state ideology Pancasila on June 1, an act of intolerance occurred in Yogyakarta as residents and members of Ormas (mass organizations) attacked a Pentecostal church in Pangukan, Sleman regency, on Sunday.

The group stoned the church, which had been vacated by its congregation after Sunday Service, destroying the building’s glass windows.

Police and military officers were powerless to stop the violent act. The regency’s public order officers installed zinc fences after the police inspected the area.

Turmudzi, board member from the Islamic study group, Majelis Ta’lim Al Huda said that local residents, along with members of the Islamic Jihad Front (FJI) and Islamic People’s Forum (FUI) were responsible for damaging the church.

‘The reason is not related to worship. We attacked the church because it has no building permit,’ Turmudzi, who suffered injuries to his hands after stoning the church, claimed.

Separately, Sleman Deputy Regent Yuni Satya Rahayu admitted that the administration had not granted a building permit to the church, saying that the church board faked signatures of local residents to fulfill the requirements of the permit.

‘The development of the church has been problematic since the beginning. Rev. Nico Lomboan was not fair to the local people, whom he wanted to build the church,’ Yuni told The Jakarta Post on Sunday.

She said Sunday’s incident was the third such act since the construction of the church began, before the administration sealed the building in 2012.

Nico and members of the church’s congregation could not be reached for comment on Sunday.

This is not the first time that the FJI has been implicated in religious-based violence in Yogyakarta. On March 30, the group’s members reportedly attacked the Kemah Injil Indonesia (GKII) church in Girisubo district, Gunungkidul

The group members also allegedly assaulted Gunungkidul Interfaith Forum chairman Aminuddin Aziz on May 2 …” Read more.

California: Earthquakes Are Increasing, But Scientists Aren’t Sure What It Means

06/03/2014 1 comment

Luke 21:10-11, “Then He said to them, ‘Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven …’”

Romans 8:22, “For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.”

By Rong-Gong Lin II, LA Times – “No, it’s not your imagination: The Los Angeles area is feeling more earthquakes this year.

After a relatively quiet period of seismic activity in the Los Angeles area, the last five months have been marked by five earthquakes larger than 4.0. That hasn’t occurred since 1994, the year of the destructive Northridge earthquake that produced 53 such temblors.

Over the next two decades, there were some years that passed without a single quake 4.0 or greater.

Earthquake experts said 2014 is clearly a year of increased seismic activity, but they said it’s hard to know whether the recent string of quakes suggests that a larger one is on the way.

‘Probably this will be it, and there won’t be any more 4s. But the chance we will have a bigger earthquake this year is more than if we hadn’t had this cluster,’ U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Lucy Jones said. ‘Every earthquake makes another earthquake more likely.’

Quakes in the magnitude 4 range are large enough to be felt over wide areas but generally too small to cause much damage. The largest this year was a magnitude 5.1 in La Habra, which caused several million dollars in damage. Others hit Fontana and Rowland Heights.

But scientists are particularly intrigued by the other two quakes, which were centered along the 405 Freeway under the Santa Monica Mountains.

In addition to a 4.4 quake March 17 in Encino and Sunday’s 4.2 temblor a few miles away in Brentwood, 15 earthquakes between magnitude 1.0 and 2.5 hit between January and March in the Santa Monica Mountains near Wilacre Park.

The quakes show that seismic activity underneath the Santa Monica Mountains is increasing …” Read more.

Flashback: There Are Almost As Many Earthquakes Rattling Oklahoma As California This Year, ‘We Haven’t Seen This Before’ – “Mile for mile, there are almost as many earthquakes rattling Oklahoma as California this year. This major increase in seismic shaking led to a rare earthquake warning today (May 5) from the U.S. Geological Survey and the Oklahoma Geological Survey. In a joint statement, the agencies said the risk of a damaging earthquake— one larger than magnitude 5.0 — has significantly increased in central Oklahoma. Geologists don’t know when or where the state’s next big earthquake will strike, nor will they put a number on the increased risk.” Read more.
