Jihadi terrorists could be hiding in Calais refugee camp ready to enter and attack Britain

12 AUG 2016

French police fear growing numbers of jihadi terrorists could be hiding among the thousands of British-bound refugees in Calais.

Islamic extremists lurking among 7,000 migrants in the northern French port could be making daily attempts to sneak into the UK, officials said.

The squalid camp near the ferry port known as the Jungle had now become an ‘unpoliceable black whole’ where it was not safe for officers to venture, it was warned.

A senior police source told Le Figaro newspaper: “What is going on in the camp is truly worrying. Our officers rarely penetrate into the heart of the camp.

“It is impossible to know if a jihadi from say Belgium, for example, is hiding there. The area is not policeable and has become a national security black hole.”

Calais police union spokesman Denis Hurth added: “With the heightened terrorist risk in all of France’s towns and cities, we only have around 1,000 officers here to tackle the most gigantic public order threats here.”

And Pascal Brice, head of France’s Office for the Protection of Refugees, added: “Identifying high-risk individuals has now become an absolute priority for us. It is imperative we root them out.”

Today’s warning comes after French anti-terrorist police raided a hotel in Calais last November over fears a jihadi cell was using it as a base to sneak into Britain.

Officials refused to confirm whether any arrests were made or if weapons and explosives had been seized, but local media reported that “heavy weapons” were found inside the hotel.

A police source added at the time: “There are always fears that terrorists are living among the thousands of illegal immigrants in Calais.”

There are currently an estimated 6,000 migrants living in a squalid shanty town near the Calais ferry port known as the jungle.

Calais mayor Natacha Bouchart has blamed Britain’s “black market economy” and “cushy benefits system” for thousands of migrants in her town.

She said last year: “Calais is a hostage to the British. The UK border should be moved from Calais to the English side of the Channel because we’re not here to do their jobs.”

Over 200 Jeish Al-Fatah Fighters Killed in Clashes with Syrian Army in Aleppo

August 13, 2016

TEHRAN (FNA)- Syrian Army troops and their popular allies continued to hit Jeish al-Fatah's positions in the Southern and Southwestern districts of Aleppo city, military sources said, adding that over 200 terrorists were killed and many more were wounded in the army attacks.

"The Syrian government forces struck Jeish al-Fatah's defense lines in al-Ramousiyeh neighborhood, surroundings of cement factory and the Southern side of artillery academy building, leaving 200 militants dead and wounding many more," the sources said.

"The Syrian fighter jets, for their part, bombed terrorists' positions near artillery academy buildings, inflicting major losses on the militants," the sources said.

In relevant developments on Friday, Syrian fighter jets launched several rounds of combat flights over Jeish al-Fatah's gatherings in the Southern and Southwestern districts of Aleppo city, inflicting dozens of casualties on the terrorists.

Jeish al-Fatah's strongholds in the Southern part of military academy buildings, South of al-Hikma school, in project 1070 area, al-Ramousiyeh, Kafr Naha, Kafr Hamra, al-Ameriyeh and Southern side of gas plant were massively bombed by the Syrian warplanes.

Jeish al-Fatah suffered a heavy death toll and its machinegun-equipped vehicles and truck carrying ammunition sustained major damage in the attacks.

A number of armored vehicles and bomb-laden cars of Jeish al-Fatah were also destroyed in the airstrikes.

11 Afghan soldiers, 92 militants killed in past 24 hours, MoD claims

Sat Aug 13 2016

At least 11 soldiers of the Afghan National Army (ANA) forces and 92 militants were killed amid soaring violence across the country, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) said Saturday.

According to a statement by MoD, the latest casualties to the Afghan army and the anti-government armed militants were incurred in the past 24 hours in various provinces of the country.

The statement further added that the operations were conducted with the support of the artillery unitys of the Afghan army and the Afghan Air Force.

At least 40 of the militants were killed in Khoshamand Zerok and Khairkot districts of Paktiak province and at least 30 others including 9 militants were killed in Samkanai and Janikhel districts of Paktia province, MoD said.

MoD in its statement also added that 17 militants were killed during a separate operation in Dahana-e-Ghori district of Baghlan and 5 more militants were killed in separate operations conducted in Laghman and Faryab provinces.

At least 11 soldiers of the Afghan National Army (ANA) forces also lost their lives during the same operations, MoD said, although there are no reports regarding the casualties of the security personnel belonging to other security institutions, including the Afghan National Police (ANP) forces.

The anti-government armed militant groups including the Taliban insurgents have not commented regarding the reports so far.

Canadian Jihadi Created ‘Martyrdom Video,’ Pledged Allegiance to Islamic State

12 Aug 2016

At a news conference on Friday, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) said that Canadian jihadi Aaron Driver, shot by the police after detonating a bomb in a taxicab, filmed a “martyrdom video,” pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and was planning a “dreadful” attack.

In the martyrdom video, Driver dresses in a black balaclava, like the garb favored by ISIS militants, “cites a phrase from the Koran, refers to crimes against Muslims and pledges an imminent attack on a Canadian city,” as Reuters describes it.

“Oh Canada, you received many warnings, you were told many times what would become of those who fight against the Islamic State,” begins the aspiring jihadi, who went by the name “Harun Abdulrahman” on social media.

The National Post provided an edited copy of the video, plus a full transcript of Driver’s tirade, which ends with the formal vow of allegiance to ISIS “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi that the Islamic State demands from “lone wolf” recruits:

Oh Canada, you received many warnings. You were told many times what will become of those who fight against the Islamic State. You watched as your allies in Europe and America had their bullets and bombs returned back to them. You saw bodies of the filthy French laying in their own streets.

You saw explosions in Paris and Brussels, similar to the explosions they were dropping on citizens of the Islamic State. You saw brave men and women respond to the call of jihad. You saw that each member of the coalition of crusaders was being punished for their aggression against the Muslims. Then, perhaps, you found yourself safe from retaliation because you ran away from the battlefield. No, no by Allah you still have much to pay for.

You still have a heavy debt which has to be paid. You still have Muslim blood on your hands, and for this we are thirsty for your blood. There’s a fire burning in the chest of every Muslim, and this fire can be cooled only by the spilling of your blood. Your war on Islam is not the kind of crime we allow ourselves to dismiss, to forgive or to forget, insha’Allah.

You will pay for everything you ever brought against us. Whether you drop a bomb or fire a single bullet, we will hold you accountable for this, insha’Allah. Whether you spend millions in the war against Islam or you spend a single cent, we will hold you accountable, insha’Allah.

When you creep an inch towards the lands of Islam or you set foot over its boundaries, we will hold you accountable, insha’Allah.

You call yourselves peacekeepers on this Earth, but (Allah) has already warned us against you. You’re nothing but mischief-makers, and all you do is spread oppression and corruption. So today is the day you experience what it’s like to be targeted for your belief, insha’Allah.

I give my pledge of allegiance to (ISIL leader) Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi … who’s called for jihad in the lands of crusaders, and I respond to this call.

Inshallah means “as Allah wills.” Driver’s taunt that Canadians could not find safety by “running away from the battlefield” refers to new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s pledge to withdraw Canadian forces from combat missions against the Islamic State.

According to Reuters, the martyrdom video was the crucial “actionable threat intelligence” provided by the American FBI to Canadian authorities. The video also reportedly helped the RCMP identify Driver and locate his residence. The police confronted him as he was attempting to use a taxicab to leave the home, and shot him after he detonated an explosive device, causing minor injuries to the cab driver.

“It was a race against time,” said RCMP Deputy Commissioner Mike Cabana. He said Driver was planning a “significantly more dreadful” attack if he had not been stopped in time.

The UK Guardian quotes Cabana addressing the issue of Driver being a known terrorist threat, who was theoretically under police supervision at the time he came dangerously close to pulling off a mass-casualty attack:

“Mr Driver was one individual among others that had potentially criminal intentions. And our ability to monitor people 24 hours a day and 7 days a week simply does not exist, we can’t do that. When individuals have intentions, such as Mr Driver had, there are no conditions that can be put in place that will prevent them from taking action.”

Newsweek reports that the ISIS news agency, Amaq, has described Driver as a “soldier of the Islamic State,” conceding that he made a mistake by “releasing his video… before carrying out the attack.”

Islamic State can’t be destroyed with half-measures

August 13, 2016

If a modern-day Australian Rip Van Winkle were to awake from a two-decade slumber and turn on his television set or iPad, he would be stunned by the extent to which terrorism has come to dominate our lives. Interspersed among international new stories featuring the latest terrorist bombings, assassinations and suicide attacks in far-flung regions of the world, he could not fail to notice the deep anxiety Australians feel about the likelihood of similar attacks taking place on Australian soil, or the Turnbull government’s preoccupation with preventing such attacks.

Paris officials investigate threats against Charlie Hebdo

French officials are investigating recent threats made against satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

Less than two years after the paper was the site of a terrorist attack that killed 12, "written death threats" have reportedly been made against the paper online.

More than a dozen posts on Charlie Hebdo's Facebook page were flagged in July and August, after the newspaper ran a satirical cartoon making fun of Muslims at the beach.

The investigation follows other threats made against the paper back in June.

How to Know If Your Muslim Friend Is A Jihadi

August 12, 2016

The teachings of Islam dictate that the people of the book (Christians and Jews) have corrupted the West with their Judeo-Christian democratic style of government. A government that allows you to choose your own leaders, that give freedom of speech, freedom of worship, etc. is a corruption brought by the people of the book.'

Last week we talked about how to “radicalize” a Muslim. We looked at the terrorists which have attacked on our soil and they seemed to be people who loved America. We ask how did they get “radicalized?”
