Pay Attention to what the Jihadists Say

by Christopher W. Holton

For those, such as the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Congressman Michael McCaul, who take comfort in the repeated individual jihadi attacks such as occurred in New York City as a sign of the weakness of our enemies, we can only point out that they have not done their homework and studied what the Jihadists have said…

Successful jihad will only happen within an ummah [Islamic nation or community] in which the fighting creed is firmly established and clarified. This must happen in order to attain the “Revolutionary Jihadist Climate” that will spontaneously give rise to instruments of resistance.

Violent jihad is as an individual duty obligatory upon every Muslim. All the ulema have said this…”

And Now Jihad in Australia…

Jihadist Yacqub Khayre, KIA by Australian police

by Christopher Holton

We can now add Melbourne, Australia to the long list of Western cities victimized by jihad during the Muslim “holy” month of Ramadan.

Late yesterday afternoon, Yacqub Khayre, 29, an Australian citizen of Somali descent–who came to Australia as a child refugee at the age of 4–killed one innocent victim and took another hostage before being killed by police in a shootout and siege that lasted some 2 hours.

Khayre killed a Chinese-Australian man in the lobby of an apartment building in the affluent  Brighton area of Melbourne. He then took a woman hostage in the building. Within two hours he was shot dead by police after opening fire on them.

Initial reports of the incident indicated that it was not “terrorist-related,” however those reports turned out to be inaccurate.

It turns out that Khayre called a local television station during the stand-off stating, “This is for the Islamic State, this is for Al-Qaeda.”

Subsequently, the Islamic State media arm, Amaq, claimed credit for the attack, stating,””The executor of the Melbourne attack in Australia is a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried out the attack in response to appeals to target citizens of coalition states.”

Once again, it turns out that Yacqub Khayre was known to authorities, had a long history of violence, had previously been charged with a terror offense but acquitted and was known to have connections in the past, with “violent extremists,” (which is of course a misnomer for Jihadists)

Another Misguided Response to the Manchester Attack from Ariana Grande

DAxXcwuXkAEDrAV

by Christopher W. Holton

This week, pop singer Ariana Grande vowed to return to Manchester in the wake of the deadly Jihadist attack that killed 22 innocent victims, many of them teen age girls.

Grande posted a letter on Twitter with a message to her fans. While the letter may have been heartfelt, its message demonstrates how so many among us are clueless as to the threat from Islamic jihad. Here are some quotes from the letter, with our commentary after each quote.

“We will never be able to understand why events like this take place…”

Actually, it isn’t difficult to understand at all. Jihadists routinely justify their actions with Islamic scripture. As Bill Warner, PhD of the Center for the Study of Political Islam pointed out not long after the Manchester attack, there is a particular passage from Islamic doctrine that Jihadists use to justify killing civilians, especially women and children. It comes from the foremost Hadith authority in Islam, Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Hadith 256 (the Hadith are sayings, stories and traditions from the life of the Prophet Mohammed):

The Prophet… was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, “They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans).

In this command, Mohammad established that it is permissible to kill non-combatants in the process of killing a perceived enemy. This has repeatedly provided justification for many Islamic terror attacks.

We may find this hard to accept, but we certainly must come to terms with it and understand what motivates Jihadists.

“We won’t let this divide us. We won’t let hate win.”

This is certainly an admirable sentiment. It’s also symptomatic of a misunderstanding of the nature of our enemy in this war.

In the terrorism of the 1970s and 1980s, carried out by political groups such as the Red Brigades, the Weather Underground, the Baader-Meinhoff gang, the Japanese Red Army, the Irish Republican Army and even the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, there was a mantra: “Kill 10 to scare 10 million.”

The terror attacks of that era had a different aim and a different nature. They were literally meant to terrorize. Each of the groups named above had a specific goal in mind. They were evil and demented to be sure, but they weren’t looking to subjugate the entire world. So, the proper response in those days was to “not let them win” by changing our way of life. The terrorists of the 70s and 80s lived to terrorize, so by not acting scared, we could deny them victory.

Islamic jihad is completely different. It is not meant merely to terrorize us. It is meant to ultimately subjugate us to Islamic rule under a caliphate operated according to the Sharia. Every Jihadist organization has this as its identical goal: the formation of an Islamic State ruled by Sharia.

They don’t just want to scare us. They want to kill enough of us and surround us with enough of them, to achieve victory over us. They aren’t looking just for publicity to spread terror. They want to kill enough of us to make us quit fighting, not just to make us frightened.

This is true apocalyptic terrorism and it represents an existential threat to Western civilization. If you don’t believe that, I suggest you take a much closer look at conditions in Western Europe today and then think back to how life was just 30 years ago in Western Europe. It’s not the same place. Not even close. What will Western Europe look like 30 years from now?

And they couple their military campaign of violent Jihad with a political, cultural, economic and legal campaign of civilizational Jihad. This is a vital point to understand. So, when we say we won’t let “hate” win, we are wide of the mark. This isn’t about mere hate. The enemy loves what they are doing. It is their devotion to their love of Allah and the prophet Mohammed that drives them. We can certainly consider it hate, but that doesn’t bring us to a better understanding of the enemy.

“Hate” isn’t trying to win. Islamic jihadists like the Abedi family are trying to win. Instead of saying “we won’t let hate win,” Grande would have been much more helpful and correct if she had said, “we won’t let the Jihadis win.”

We can’t be sure of what Grande means when she says, “We won’t let this divide us.”

Divide who? The victims themselves? The victims from the perpetrators? The host society from the alien culture that has invaded, chosen not to assimilate and become an incubator for an internal, existential, deadly threat in the form of Islamic jihad?

I’d say the enemy has already drawn the dividing line. How can that not be completely obvious already? How many deadly attacks do we have to endure before our pop culture-dominated society in the West wakes up to reality?

“Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder, and to live more kindly and generously than we did before.”

Again, these are certainly admirable sentiments that shouldn’t ever be opposed. We should all endeavor to live our lives this way. In the Judeo-Christian West, these are the kinds of values that we have been taught and must always strive to achieve.

But they cannot be our only response to “this violence.” The enemy is on a mission. There is a reason why he chose to attack a music concert attended largely by young girls. The enemy wanted to show us that there are no lengths to which he won’t go to fight and kill us. He wanted to show us that we are powerless to defend our most innocent and precious. They attacked that concert because they have disdain for us. It was a form of lethal ridicule. They want us to continue to hold and attend such concerts. And we can be sure they will seek to attack those events.

This is not to say that we shouldn’t hold concerts and celebrations. But those concerts and celebrations do not represent, even in a small way, defiance in the face of evil. More concerts will not phase the Jihadists in the slightest.

No, we need a real response to these attacks–and it starts with the realization that we are in a war, a war that most of us in the West deny even exists.

So, by all means let’s love and sing and come closer together, but let’s not delude ourselves into thinking that is the path to victory over the dark forces of Jihad spread now around the globe. Moreover, make no mistake: victory is essential in this fight, even if victory just means denying victory to the Jihadists.

“Music is something that everyone on Earth can share. Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together, to make us happy.”

All this is well and good, but excuse me if I point out that our Jihadist enemies don’t feel the same way about music, particularly Western music (and by Western I don’t mean Marty Robbins ballads). This presents us with a  teaching moment. In areas where the Jihadists have achieved their goal of forming an Islamic state, it is customary that music and art are often banished. We saw that when the Ayatollahs seized power in Iran. We saw that when the Taliban took control for a brief time in Afghanistan. When the Islamic State seized significant territory in Iraq and Syria, music and forms of artistic expression were banned and destroyed.

As a female, try driving a car down the street in Saudi Arabia with the windows rolled down with your stereo blaring the latest Ariana Grande tune.

Music doesn’t heal our enemy. It doesn’t bring him closer to us and it doesn’t make him happy. We need to start to understand a mindset, ideology and religious doctrine that is as alien to us in the West as anything from another solar system. Especially since that mindset, ideology and doctrine have as a goal subjecting us, or else…

“We will continue in honor of the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans and all affected by this tragedy” (Emphasis added)

The attack on the concert goers in Manchester was NOT a “tragedy.” To say so is to dishonor the memory of those lost. A tragedy is an unavoidable event, such as an act of nature or an accident. A tragedy is a tornado or earthquake or tsunami. A tragedy is when a truck driver has a heart attack and careens into oncoming traffic, resulting in death and destruction.

A tragedy is not when a Jihadi steals a truck and purposely runs down innocent victims at a celebration or market.

And what happened in Manchester was not a tragedy.

It was an atrocity. It was an act of war. We better come to terms as a society with the fact that we are at war and, as people, demand that our leaders recognize that fact. We need to quit waiting on our so-called leaders to come around to the reality that we already know. We are at war. The enemy knows it and has about a 20-year head start on us.

Statements like this one from Ariana Grande aren’t helpful toward that end.

 

 

Jihad Continues to Escalate in the Philippines

pzabu29e_2x

posted by Christopher W. Holton

We’ve been covering the Islamic insurgency in the Philippines for years now. Along with Thailand, it is one of the two major Islamic insurgencies of which people in the West are mostly unaware.

Since the Jihadist group Abu Sayyaf pledged allegiance to the Islamic State back in 2014, their operations have escalated, at the very least suggesting that funding sources have ramped up their support for the Jihad in the Philippines…

https://terrortrendsbulletin.com/2015/11/26/report-islamic-state-affiliate-abu-sayyaf-expanding-operations/

mainx_adn_0505_abusayyafgrouppdf

The latest incident involves the hostage taking of a half dozen Vietnamese sailors from the high seas near the Philippines, part of Abu Sayyaf’s ongoing operations to both terrorize and raise money through ransom…

Suspected Abu Sayyaf militants attacked a Vietnamese cargo ship on Friday, kidnapping the captain and five of its crew members near the southern Philippine island of Basilan.

Approximately 10 gunmen launched a dawn attack on the MV Royal 16, boarding the vessel and fleeing with their captives in speedboats, according to regional military spokesman Major Filemon Tan. Their fate and current status remain unknown.

The ship was heading for Davao City but was stopped near the southern heartland of the Abu Sayyaf militant group, which has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State militant group (ISIS). Vietnam is yet to comment on their kidnap.

French Authorities Charge Third Man In Jihadist Murder of Priest

map saint-etienne-du-rouvray

posted by Christopher W. Holton

It appears the horrific Jihadist attack on the Catholic church in Normandy last month was surely a planned operation, with at least one conspirator 500 miles away…

French prosecutors filed preliminary charges of terrorism against a third man detained on suspicion of collaborating in last month’s murder of a French priest, suggesting the slaying was the work of a broader group of Islamic State followers.

The 21-year-old was detained Monday in the area of Toulouse, a city 500 miles south of the church of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray where the attack took place in late July…

The latest man to be charged was in contact with (the attackers) though his cellphone and through the mobile phone app Telegram, the prosecutor’s spokeswoman said. He traveled from Toulouse to Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray and was in the town on July 24 and 25, on the eve of the attack.

While America’s Politicos Party, the Global Jihad Escalates

by Christopher W. Holton

The U.S. news media has been almost completely entranced by the pontificating and posturing at the conventions of its two major political parties the past week or so. This has prevented them from covering the fact that events overseas demonstrate that the global Jihadist movement is NOT on its heels and NOT on the run. Nor is it contained.

First, on Thursday, 21 July, a British airman narrowly escaped an abduction at knifepoint outside Royal Air Force Station Marham. That particular base is home to a RAF squadron of Tornado bombers that deployed to the Middle East and conducted air strikes against the Islamic State.

RAFMarhamandCrest

The RAF airman was jogging along a road near the base when he was accosted by two men driving a vehicle along the same road. Fortunately, he was able to fight off his attackers who then fled. The attackers were described as “Asian,” which is a horribly misleading British media euphemism for Middle Eastern or Pakistani/Indian, and NOT Oriental as most people associate with the term Asian today.

The British military has been on alert for an attack against personnel inside the UK since Fusilier Lee Rigby was beheaded outside Woolwich barracks, in southeast London by two Jihadis.

There are now reports that the vehicle driven by the two attackers was observed making “dry runs” near the base before the attempted snatch operation.

Jihadi communiques have mentioned this type of attack repeatedly and the Islamic State and Al Qaeda have both issued calls for attacks on military personnel in the West and for attacks using knives and other edged weapons.

Then, on the same day, it was announced that Brazilian authorities had arrested 10 people in an apparent plot to carry out an Islamic State-inspired attack on the upcoming Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro.

2016-rio-olympics759-1

The group of ten were described as a “disorganized cell” that was communicating with each other online to plan attacks. The Brazilian federal police moved in on the Jihadis when they began to make plans to purchase firearms.

While the media has sought to downplay the significance of this development, it should be pointed out that 10 “disorganized” people with firearms can create a lot of death and destruction.

The federal police are concentrating their monitoring on the infamous “tri-border” region that we have covered before. This is a nearly lawless region with a large Muslim population which has been known to be a haven for HAMAS, Hezbollah and Al Qaeda members in the past.

The lawless "Tri-Border Area" in South America

In a related development, a Brazilian Jihadist group calling itself “Ansar al-Khilafah Brazil” pledged allegiance to the Islamic State last week as well, signaling an intention to target the Olympics, which are defended by 85,000 police and military personnel.

In addition, the SITE Intelligence Group reports that Jihadists have been broadcasting advice for individual Jihadis via social media and mobile devices to carry out attacks during the Olympics, including the use of toy drones.

As if all this was not enough, the world’s attention then swung to Germany, where a series of 4 attacks has initiated that country into the group of Western nations targeted directly by individual Jihadi attacks.

The first attack came on 19 July in the form of an axe attack on train passengers, not unlike the Jihadi attack in Queens, New York in October 2014:

https://terrortrendsbulletin.com/2014/10/23/breaking-possible-jihadi-attack-in-nyc/

The attacker in Germany was a 17-year old Afghan refugee. Three people were injured in the attack and the Afghan Jihadi was shot dead by German police.

But the Jihadi violence was not over in Germany. Even before the next attack however–and we believe that this is significant–the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade issued a travel advisory for Germany, warning that the threat of terrorism in Germany “remains high and further attacks are likely.”

What did the Australians know that the rest of the world was ignoring?

Within a few hours of the Australian bulletin, the news broke that shots had been fired at a shopping center in Munich.

After much initial confusion, it was discovered that a German-Iranian had killed 9 innocent victims and wounded 16 others with a pistol.

German authorities are still trying to distance this attack from any Jihadist motive, but their efforts are almost sure to fail. Multiple witnesses claim they heard the shooter shout “Allah u Akbar” during the course of the attack. The fact that the shooter was unknown previously to German security and intelligence services and was not a member of a known terrorist group is of no comfort whatsoever in this new age of individual Jihad.

Moreover, there is some evidence to indicate that the Germans are just plain wrong about the shooter, one Ali Sonboly.

Note that the image above prominently features the Turkish flag, not the Iranian flag and at least one observer makes the point that Sonboly was probably Syrian, not Iranian…

Again in Germany, yesterday, 24 July, a Syrian refugee carried out a machete attack outside a kebab restaurant in Reutlingen, Germany. Once again, German officials downplayed any possible Jihadist motive in the attack, which left a 45 year old Polish woman dead. But the fact that it occurred in the midst of a rash of similar attacks and that it involved an edged weapon, something the Islamic State has specifically recommended in communiques, is beyond merely suspicious. Reports linking the two romantically do not explain the other two individuals the Syrian wounded in the attack.

The dead victim of the machete attack in Germany on 24 July 2016

Fortunately a good samaritan driving a BMW ran over the machete wielder before he could make his escape.

Then, just hours after the machete attack, an Islamikaze bomber set off an IED outside a music festival in Ansbach, Germany, killing himself and injuring 15 others. Once again, the attacker was a 27-year old Syrian refugee. He had tried to gain access to the music festival but was refused admission. He then set off his bomb. Had he been able to get into the music festival, casualties would almost certainly have been greater.

This time the German officials could not deny the Jihadist motive. A search of the man’s living quarters and belongings uncovered a video in which he pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and the Islamic State’s media arm, Islamic State Amaq, confirmed the attack as a martyrdom operation carried out by an Islamic State soldier in response to its calls to target the Western coalition fighting against it.

Germany is still on edge and its Interior Ministry has ordered increased security for airports and train stations (but not music festivals or restaurants evidently).

If all this was not enough, the most horrific Islamic State attack of all came on the 23rd of July in Kabul, Afghanistan, where 3 Islamikaze bombers attacked a protest killing 80 and wounding 236…

We can only hope that the elected leaders here in America recognize the frenetic pace of Jihadi activity worldwide and realize their duty to make defeating Jihad the number 1 national priority.

IED attack at airport in Somalia; lessons to be learned

Posted by Christopher W. Holton

An Improvised Explosive Device, sometimes known as a bomb, disguised as a laptop computer was detonated today at an airport security checkpoint in Somalia. Preliminary reports from the scene indicate 6 injuries and, thankfully, no deaths, from this incident.

But this is a nightmare scenario that we have discussed here on Terror Trends Bulletin before and it is worth reposting here:

Since the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States, the federal government has gone to great lengths to keep weaponry of all sorts from finding its way on airliners.

The effectiveness of these measures is open to debate, but the idea has been to prevent items such as explosive devices fashioned in the form of contact lens saline solution bottles, shaving cream cans and the like from finding their way onto an airliner. The TSA is also supposed to be on the lookout for box cutters (and pocket knifes and fingernail files), as well as shoes loaded with explosives.

All of these measures have been reactive–in response to both successful and failed terrorist plots from the past. Such is the nature of our bureaucratic counter terror apparatus. The enemy watches what we do and dreams up more methods to exploit holes and vulnerabilities in the defensive security measures. And, of course, once the enemy tries a new method, successful or otherwise, the TSA modifies its policies to defend against the last attack.

Americans of all philosophies are frustrated by what they perceive as onerous inconveniences and gross invasions of personal privacy.

But that is not the issue that should be of greatest concern to Americans. What should truly concern us all is that the measures that have locked down airliners tighter than a drum have created bottlenecks and choke points in airport terminals, leaving even larger numbers of travelers vulnerable to violent terrorist attack.

airport-security-lines1

One attack on a single airliner has the potential to kill anywhere from dozens to a few hundred innocent passengers. But an attack on a busy airport terminal has the potential to kill several plane loads of innocent travelers before they get on the airplane.

Take a look at the accompanying photographs and the vulnerability is clear. A backpack bomb in a security line would be devastating and the security apparatus is exactly what caused the vulnerability.

To be fair, security lines are not the only vulnerability. Long lines at ticket counters produce huge crowds and bottlenecks as well:

460c0_628x471

1228-attack-911-airport-line_full_600

line

What all this adds up to is an overall air travel industry that is still quite at risk.

Lest you think that I have pointed out a vulnerability that the Jihadists may not have thought of yet, rest assured that the Jihadists have already identified airports as targets for mass casualty attacks.

In fact, there have been two such attacks in recent years, one successful and one failed.

In January 2011, Islamikaze bombers attacked Domodedovo airport in Moscow, killing 35 and wounding 182. This incident is largely forgotten in the West. In fact, it received scant media attention beyond the day of the attack.

The fact that the attackers were believed to have been trained at an Al Qaeda camp in Pakistan should serve as a warning to America. If the Jihadis can train to attack Russian airports, they can train to attack American airports just as well.

The photographs below of the carnage serve as a stark contrast to the photos above showing travelers queuing up to get their tickets or go through security…Note that these photos were taken from camera phones soon after the bombing.

When one compares the photos from the security and ticket counter lines to the photos from Moscow, it is not difficult to grasp the magnitude of the vulnerability.

Moscow was not the only airport attack.

In 2007, two Moslem physicians attempted to blow up the terminal building at Glasgow International Airport in the UK with a VBIED (Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device).

The two planned on driving a Jeep Cherokee through the front door and detonating a large bomb upon slamming through the entrance. Fortunately, their bomb fizzled, but the images below show just how close they came to achieving their evil objective. Given the results from other VBIED attacks in the past in places like Lebanon, Iraq, Kenya and Tanzania, it’s not hard to imagine the horrible effects of a successful attack on a crowded airport terminal.

There is an old saying that he who tries to defend everything defends nothing. What is the answer to these vulnerabilities? No doubt technology will play a prominent role in finding solutions, but we should also consider the fact that while the newly unionized TSA is confiscating nail clippers from soldiers returning from war, making mothers sample their own breast milk, frisking wheelchair-bound grandmothers and fondling genitalia, they are actually putting all travelers in real danger.

Jihad: It’s NOT all about us…it’s about Islamic doctrine

boko-haram

by Christopher W. Holton

There is a narrative in the West, promoted particularly by Muslim Brotherhood operatives and their allies, that violent Jihad is primarily the result of things that Westerners have done.

Among the excuses that apologists for Islamic atrocities give are:

• Islamophobia in the West and the USA in particular.

• US support for “oppressive” regimes in the Islamic world.

• US support for Israel.

• The presence of US troops in “Muslim lands.”

Linked below are news articles about two recent events that debunk the myth that Jihad is merely something that is performed in response to things we do or say.

The first is a report from India that there is a threat of terrorist attack at New Year’s from the Jihadist organization Lashkar e Taiba. Readers may recall that Lashkar e Taiba carried out a savage attack on Mumbai, India back in 2008, killing hundreds of innocent civilians.

http://zeenews.india.com/news/india/pm-modi-parliament-nuclear-installations-on-lashkar-e-toibas-radar-alert-issued_1839540.html

Next we have two reports about the annual attack on Christians in Nigeria carried out by Boko Haram (which is now part of the Islamic State).

Christmas Day Massacre: Boko Haram Kills 16, Including Children

http://www.christianpost.com/news/christmas-day-massacre-boko-haram-kills-16-people-children-kidnaps-villagers-burns-homes-153535/

Boko Haram kills more than 50 people in north-eastern Nigeria in two-day wave of attacks

…Boko Haram countered with a series of devastating attacks on towns in the country’s north-east, claiming dozens of fatalities in a bloody killing spree that began on Christmas Day.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-12-29/boko-haram-kills-more-than-50-people-in-two-days-of-attacks/7057662

There is simply no way to blame the threat of Jihad in India or savage Christmas day terrorist attacks on Christians in Nigeria on mythical “Islamophobia” or US foreign policy or even Israel.

The fact is, Jihad is based in Islamic doctrine–doctrine that is 1300 years old. Jihadists base their actions on Islamic scripture and not on videos produced in the West or speeches given by US presidential candidates.

It’s about time we learned this lesson in America.
