Ongoing Large Scale Terror in France -- Foggy Info, but Dozens Dead, Possible Mass Scale Hostage Situtation
This looks like it's a big one. Worse than the Charlie Hebdo attacks, with multiple bombings, shootings, and a possible ongoing hostage situation with up to 60 being held.
Two police officials said at least 26 people have been killed in shootings and explosions around Paris Friday, in the deadliest violence in France in decades.This is ongoing and I won't be able to keep up with all the breaking developments.
A police official said 11 people were killed in a Paris restaurant in the 10th arrondissement, and about 15 killed in the Bataclan theater, where a hostage-taking is under way.
My prayers are with Parisians.
More specifically with the Paris police. The ones with guns.
This is not good ...

There's are a bunch of people livetweeting this. I mean, right now, live.
Explosions during a soccer match between Germany and France (if I recall right).
UPDATE: I took down the short video, because it was a Vine and the autoplay feature is annoying.
But here's some pretty gruesome street footage:
The aftermath on the streets ...
And the stadium being evacuated ...
The hostages are said to be in a theater where a band that Josh Homme, the lead singer of Queen of the Stone Ages, is playing. So, that's not good.
This is developing. I really can't keep up. Just remember that a lot of reports that come out during an incident like this or shortly after often turn out to be wrong.
Also, the spin. Just ignore the spin.

Sharia4Belgium Adds Yet Another Epic Fail To its Record?
A MILITARY barracks was on lockdown this morning after a masked gunman rammed the front gate with a car and exchanged fire with Belgian soldiers.20 to 1 he's one of Anjem Choudary's Sharia4Belgium losers.
The gunman was said to be on the loose after ramming the car – thought to be full of explosives – into the front barricade at the Flawinne military base outside Charleroi, 50 miles south of Brussels.
Local media reported that he then began a gunfight with paratroopers stationed at the base before fleeing on foot. TV channel Canal C spoke of a “huge police presence” at the scene and said “several shots” had been fired.
RT: The suspect has been caught.Belgian Authorities say "No link to terrorism at this time."
...The assailant's identity is not being revealed at this time, but a press conference will be held at 15:00 local time (14:00GMT), where more information is expected to be revealed.
A man who attacked a Belgian military base on Monday by ramming his car into the gates, leading soldiers to open fire on him, appears to have no links to a wider plot or international terrorism, local authorities said.I thought I might have been wrong once, but I was mistaken.
The suspect, a 32-year-old from the southern Belgian town of Namur, had tried to join the commandos based in nearby Flawinne in 2010, said Colonel Marc Brevers, military commander of Namur province.
So 20 x 0 = 0.

A fire broke out early Tuesday morning at a synagogue in BrusselsThe Belgian authorities are baffled and are ask for help in finding the perpetrator from the Asian Youth community.
Asked about the reasons of the fire, Yehuda Guttmann, president of the Jewish community of Anderlecht, declared: "I do not know ... If the act was anti-Semitic, the authors would have burned a Torah, the sacred books. And that's not the case. Here we live at peace with everyone.’

Spain Arrests 4, Morocco 3 in Large-Scale Jihadi Recruitment Cell
It's being called the most active and largest terror cell in Europe. The suspects come from all over, including Belgium and France. Their crime? Recruiting fodder for the killing fields in Syria (but also Mali). I think you all know my new position on this: let them go and die, save the arrests for when they come home:
"It has been a very big operation that has dismantled an international cell, without doubt the biggest and most active in Spain and one of the biggest and most active currently in Europe," Spain's Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz told a news conference.Actually, after reading further into the story, it looks like at least some of these guys had already been battle hardened and returned from the jihad fields. So I guess I'm ok with these guys getting arrested. But as long as these a-holes are volunteering for an almost certain death, and in the process just might kill a few other a-holes in Hezbollah, why not let them go?
Security forces arrested four of the suspects in Spain, including the head of the network, and another three in Morocco, in what his ministry called a "hard blow" against extremist killers and kidnappers.
Security forces seized the suspected leader of the ring, Mustafa Maya Amaya, a Belgian naturalised in Spain, as well as two French suspects he is thought to have recruited to send to Syria, the interior ministry said in a statement.
Amaya is suspected of recruiting volunteers on the Internet and sending them to join "terrorist organisations" in countries including Syria and Mali, it said.

Woman Arrested in France, Ties to AQAP
She was reading Inspire magazine. Probably just flipping through, looking for the beefcake centerfold:
A source close to the investigation said the woman was arrested around 6:30 am (0430 GMT) at her apartment in the working-class Belleville district of Paris.Whenever we arrest a female terrorist the usual suspects will start claiming that she was framed, "men are touching a Muslim woman!!11!!!", or that she's being raped. Because all women are patsies to the evil Juice conspiracy. Except when they aren't. In which case they're heroes!
The 21-year-old was arrested as part of an investigation by anti-terror officers into a case of "criminal association in connection with a terrorist enterprise," the source said.
The source said the suspect had been a reader of Inspire -- an online magazine published by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula -- and would be questioned about potential contacts with the group.

Terror Financier Arrested in Belgium
This guy was the financial chief for a group working out of Spain and North Africa. They send recruits down the pipeline to Syria, where said recruits blow themselves up:
Spanish authorities say Belgian police have arrested a suspected top member of a terrorist recruitment network based in Spain that allegedly sent militants to carry out attacks for al-Qaida-linked groups in Syria.It's funny how these guys always think of themselves as way too smart and valuable for the suicide bomb work. But if they were the ones that were so smart, how come they're in jail?
A Spanish Interior Ministry statement said Ismail Abdelatif Al Lal was arrested Thursday in Vilvoorde, north of Brussels, on a European Arrest Warrant issued by Spain.

Copycat Of Woolwich?French Soldier Stabbed In Neck By Bearded Man Of North African 'Type'...
Too soon to tell if 'copycat' but smite them when you see them comes to mind. France has radical jihadi returning from the war in Syria who fought along side with the likes of al-Qaeda affiliated al-Nursah and they have worried they will start doing shite like this. Also, France's intervention in Mali have caused AQIM (al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb) loving jihadi in their midst to go ape shite.
The brave brave jihadi came up from behind the soldier and stabbed him in the neck.
Vigipirate military mission in the business district of La Défense (Hauts-de-Seine) was stabbed, including throat with a knife on Saturday by a man currently in hiding[...]Pat Dollard has more on this from a English source: The attack was being treated as a “terrorist incident”, said a source at the Paris prosecutors office.
According to the Nanterre prosecutor, Robert Gelli, questioned by AFP, the military soldier was hit from behind by a man who brought him a blow to the neck. He spoke of "a knife" without being able to say if it was a knife or a cutter. He was initially treated at a local RATP close before being hospitalized in Clamart (Hauts-de-Seine). His life is not in danger.
The attacker managed to flee. He "left without saying a word," said the prefect of Hauts-de-Seine who visited the scene. "He wanted to kill the soldier," he said. Police described him as a man of North African type, aged about 30 years. It is with a beard, a black jacket and a light colored jilbab, according to our information.
Update: More on the attacker and condition of the soldier, which isn't much except for 'out of danger':
The soldier was reported to be out of danger after being transported to a nearby military hospital[...]Let's hope the security cameras video were clear enough for a facial recognition and will lead to his capture.
The lone attacker was described as a young man wearing a Muslim prayer cap and a North African-style robe called a jellabah. According to a police account, he was monitored on security cameras and seen shedding his robe and fleeing in European clothes before disappearing into the crowd in a subway and train entrance.

Spain Arrests 2 Men Suspected Of Links To Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM)
Apparently the two were like the Boston Bombers, but weren't like the Boston Bombers because they weren't brothers or from the Caucasus.
Strange explanation of how they were like but not like the Boston Bombers.
Madrid (CNN) -- Spanish police arrested two suspected terrorists with apparent links to an al Qaeda-affiliated group Tuesday but said they had no indication of an imminent attack.Became radicalized on the net?
The Interior Ministry identified the suspects as Nou Mediouni, from Algeria, who was arrested in the north-central city of Zaragoza, and Hassan El Jaaouani, from Morocco, who was detained in the southeastern city of Murcia.
Spanish police worked with their counterparts in France and Morocco to carry out the latest arrests, the Interior Ministry statement said.
The statement said the two suspects have a "profile" that is similar to the two suspects in the Boston Marathon attacks.
However, that similarity is based only on how the two suspects in Spain were "radicalized," by going to online forums and chat rooms, and also in the suspects' alleged interest in pulling from the Internet information on bomb-making[Samir Khan's "Directions on How to Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom" from AQAP's Inspire magazine. ..ed], said an Interior Ministry spokesman, who by custom is not identified.
The pair, who are from different countries, are not brothers and, unlike the two suspects in the Boston Marathon attacks, have no roots in the Caucasus region, he said.
The two are suspected members of a radical cell close to the terrorist organization al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, the Interior Ministry said.
Who woulda thunk.
Mediouni[L. above] was regular user of an online forum from which responsible for Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) with which allegedly is linked, recruited people with more radical profiles.If anyone is interested, AQIM's mouthpiece is also on twitter: @Andalus_Media. Apparently the media head had a "news conference' aka Q & A thingy. You can read the questions/answers here[PDF].
Meanwhile, Jaaouani, 52, was linked with common criminals and now no job.
Like Mediouni, this alleged member of AQIM have been involved with the same responsible for the terrorist organization located in Mali and in charge of recruiting Islamic terrorists in Spain.
came to contact, explains Interior, with one of the people directly related to the kidnapping and murder of two French citizens in January 2011.
Became radicalized on the net.

The Post in Which Rusty Prays Censored31 is Dead
Is it too much to wish for that this is Censored31?
An man of Algerian origin killed by Belgian police in a shoot-out on a motorway Tuesday was suspected of terrorist links, the Belga news agency reported, citing a spokesman for the federal prosecutor...Ah, who am I kidding: Censored31 is far too big of a pussy to ever follow through on his deep held belief that al Qaeda is doing God's work.
The investigation showed that the man was buying arms and other equipment such as bullet-proof clothing, and had linked him to an armed robbery of a restaurant, Belga said....
A search later of his home in Anderlecht, a suburb of Brussels, revealed arms, ammunition and explosives, plus other equipment which Belga said the police would put on display on Wednesday.
The shoot-out took place early afternoon on the motorway from Brussels to the southern city of Tournai as the police chased the man down.

'Ultralight' Terrorists? Spain Says Al Qaeda Planned Airborne Attack
Spanish police arrested three suspected al Qaeda operatives Wednesday out of fear they planned an airborne attack in Europe, according to Spain's interior minister, Jorge Fernandez Diaz.According to Haaretz
While local authorities have arrested dozens of alleged militants since 2004, when a key Madrid train station was attacked, Spanish media reported these were the first caught with explosives, meaning they had become an operational cell.
The three suspects -- two from ex-Soviet republics and a Turk -- had timers and enough explosives to blow up a bus, Diaz said in a press conference in Madrid. Police believe at least two of those arrested had practiced flying small "ultralight" airplanes or using small drones, Diaz said.
The suspects were arrested in Cadiz and Ciudad Real, two of them on a bus en route to France.Someone said: "there will be an explosion in their Jihanuseses, just not the kind they were expecting ;-)"
Spanish police told El Paiz that explosive materials found in the home of the Turk was strong enough to "completely destroy a bus".
At least one of the suspects was trained at a terrorist camp in Pakistan, according tp Spanish media. The organization had apparently been seeking out Spanish-speaking "lone wolves" in Saudi Arabia, according to El Pais.

Bulgaria Releases Image of Suicide Bomber
SOFIA, Bulgaria — Bulgarian police on Wednesday released a computer-generated image of the suicide attacker involved in the bombing in Bulgaria that killed five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver two weeks ago.MFM will get right on this once they are done repeating and repeating so called Romney gaffes about Israel's Islamist neighbor.
A police statement said the image of the dark-haired man was produced after reconstructing the badly damaged face of the bomber, who was decapitated in the explosion at a popular vacation resort on July 18.[More...]

Bulgarian PM: Bus Attacker Part of Larger Terror Cell
Bulgaria's PM doesn't go far as to name Hezbollah as behind the attack, but the message seems pretty clear: it was Hezbollah
The suicide bomber who killed six people in Bulgaria last week was part of a sophisticated group of conspirators, Prime Minister Boiko Borisov has said.Meanwhile, our morally superior cohorts in the EU have once again declined the chance of labeling Hezbollah a terrorist organization.
He said the group had arrived in Bulgaria a month before the attack....
hose involved used "leased vehicles, they moved in different cities so as not to be seen together, and no two of them can be seen in one place on any security camera".
"There was absolutely no chance of preventing such an act of violence," the prime minister insisted.
"We could have only detected it by chance or if we had been informed by the services that such activities were under way in Bulgaria."

Bulgarian authorities release artist’s sketch of man said to have helped Burgas terrorist
[B]ulgarian authorities on Friday released an artist’s sketch of a man believed to have helped the bomber who blew up a bus full of Israeli tourists in Burgas on Wednesday, killing five Israelis and the Bulgarian bus driver.Attacker had short hair, not long
Bulgarian officials have been quoted in the past two days as saying the suicide bomber was not Bulgarian, but had some local assistance.[...]
According to one eyewitness report, the man [bomber..ed] got talking to a group of tourists from Holland, and told them that his mother was Dutch and his father was Iranian.
Bulgarian prosecutors said the attacker had short hair, not the long hair seen in the security video footage captured of him at the airport. A witness said he appeared to be wearing a wig[...]Bomber spoke "English with Arab accent" and "mother Dutch and father Iranian".
Afrodita Petrova, the owner of the car rental company, told Bulgarian National TV that the suspect had short dark hair when visiting the office. She said he was the same person from the video camera footage and appeared to be wearing a wig.
“He spoke English with an Arab accent,” she said.
Release: Bulgarian police director in the last hours hunting for another suspect, who seemed Assistant of the terrorist who carried out the attack Burgas, which killed five Israelis and a Bulgarian citizen and injuring dozens. Security forces suspect that the Assistant, David Jepson, an American citizen, holds possession of another bomb.Hmmm

"Senior US Official": Bulgaria Terror Attack Tit -For-Tat For Israel Ops vs Iranian Nuke Program
BURGAS, Bulgaria — A senior American official confirmed Israel’s assertions on Thursday that the suicide bomber who killed five Israelis in an attack here on Wednesday was a member of a Hezbollah cell operating in Bulgaria.Gawd, has the Obama administration gone completely mad?
The official said the current American intelligence assessment is that the bomber was “acting under broad guidance” to hit Israeli targets when the opportunity presented itself. That guidance was given to Hezbollah, a Lebanese militant group, by its primary sponsor, Iran, he said.
The attacks, the official said, were in retaliation for the assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists by Israeli agents, something that Israel has neither confirmed nor denied. “This was tit for tat,” said the American official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the investigation was still underway[...]
For their part[NYT gotta put this in], Iranian officials condemned the attack and all acts of terrorism. “Terrorism endangers the lives of innocents,” said a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, Ramin Mehmanparast, according to Iran’s state Arabic-language television channel, Al Alam.

Five Israeli Victims of Bulgaria Terror Attack Named
The Interior Ministry released on Thursday the names of the five Israelis murdered in a suicide bombing in Bulgaria Wednesday: Itzik Colangi, 28, Amir Menashe, 28, Elior Price, 26, Maor Harosh, 25, and Kochava Shriki, 44.Again, our thoughts and prayers are with family and friends of these innocents.
Itzik Colangi and Amir Menashe were good friends from Petah Tikva. Colangi's wife GIlat gave birth to their first child, Noya, four months ago, and his birthday was two weeks ago. The couple decided to celebrate in Burgas with their friends Natalie and Amir Menashe, who have a ten-month-old son, Rom. Gilat was severely injured and Natalie was lightly injured from the terrorist attack, while Itzik and Amir were killed while packing their luggage onto the bus.
Elior Price, a student, and Maor Harosh, an electrician, grew up together in Acre and went on vacation to Bulgaria with another close friend, Daniel Fahima. Harosh and Price were killed, while Fahima was severely injured.
Kochava Shriki of Rishon Lezion, was pregnant for the first time after years of fertility treatments. She gave her family the good news shortly before leaving for vacation in Bulgaria with her husband Yitzhak. After the attack, Yitzhak, who was injured, searched for Kochava in the rubble and in the hospital in Bulgaria, and learned of her death a day later.[More...]
Senseless, senseless killing of innocents.

Teenagers killed as gunman goes on rampage in Finland
REUTERS - A gunman opened fire from a rooftop in a Finnish town centre in the early hours of Saturday, killing two people and wounding several others, police said.About their new and improved gun control laws:
An 18-year-old man wearing camouflage clothing was arrested after the shooting in Hyvinkaa, a small town 56 km (34 miles) north of the capital Helsinki.
The motive for the shooting was unclear. It followed a series of shooting sprees in Finland in recent years and came less than a year after anti-immigrant gunman Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 people in a rampage in neighbouring Norway.
Finland has one of the highest gun ownership rates in the world and a series of mass shootings prompted the government to toughen its gun laws last June. The suspect in Saturday’s case did not have a license, police said.Enough said.

Islamic Terrorist Calls for Murder of German Anti Sharia Group Members for Insulting Islam
"Far right" in this story and other mainstream media stories means opposition to Islamization and Sharia. "Islamist calls for murder of German far-right party: media," from Expatica, May 20 (thanks to David):The terrorist in question is Abū Ibrāhīm al-’Almānī’. Here is a copy of the threat uploaded to Youtube here by Jundullah Studio.A German Islamist is calling for the murder of members of a far-right party that regularly provokes ultra-conservative Muslims using cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed, a newspaper reported.
According to an article due to appear Monday in the Tageszeitung daily, an Islamist from Bonn in western Germany has appeared in a video on an Islamic forum in which he encouraged "the killing of all activists from the Pro NRW party".
Members of the small extreme-right political party held a campaign event using anti-Islamic caricatures ahead of an election in Germany's most populous state North Rhine-Westphalia on May 13.
In his appeal, the Islamist urged the collection of personal information on Pro NRW members, including their home addresses and work schedules, with the goal of attacking them.

Good News: Another German Jihadist Killed in Afghanistan
Bad News: Not German Jihadist Salahudin Ibn Jafar
A German jihadist is thought to have been killed in an airstrike carried out by US drones on March 9 in Pakistan's Taliban-controlled tribal agency of South Waziristan.Read more:
The German, a known "Islamist" from Aachen, has been identified at Samir H., according to a report in Der Spiegel. Samir was one of 13 Taliban and "foreign fighters" who were killed in the March 9 strike in Makeen, South Waziristan. In that strike, the remotely-piloted US strike aircraft fired missiles at a pickup truck transporting Taliban fighters.
Samir was the "son of a Tunisian father and a German mother" and was "born and raised in East Germany," according to Jih@d, a website that tracks European jihadists. Samir "traveled to Pakistan in October 2009 with his wife and two children, and joined the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU). In November 2009 Samir´s sister, at the age of 18, followed her older brother and made her way to the Waziristan tribal region."
When I see the words dead German Jihadist I always hope for Salahudin Ibn Jafar.
Oh well maybe next time.

Report: French Islamists Planned Kidnapping of Jewish Magistrate
More of #Toulouse shooters buds no doubt:
AFP - Some of the 16 suspected Islamic militants detained in France allegedly planned to kidnap a Jewish magistrate and other people, a source close to the investigation said on Tuesday.BTW, did you hear about this: France Kicks Militant Islamist Out Of Country, Promptly Moves To The UK…
"It looks like some of them planned to carry out kidnappings including that of a magistrate who has a Jewish-sounding name," the source said.
Another source confirmed that a Jewish magistrate from Lyon in central France was to be targeted.
The head of France's Central Directorate for Domestic Intelligence (DCRI), Bernard Squarcini, said on Saturday that those arrested the previous day were French nationals involved in "collective war-like training, linked to a violent, religious indoctrination".
Some of those arrested belonged to a suspected extremist group called Forsane Alizza, he said, and had been involved in paintball gun games.

Al Qaeda linked terror group, Jund al Khilafah, claims Toulouse shooting
Jund al Khilafah, or Soldiers of the Caliphate, an al Qaeda and Haqqani Network-linked terror group that is based along the Afghan-Pakistani border, claimed credit for one of the shootings attributed to Mohamed Merah, a French citizen and resident of Toulouse who was killed in a shootout by French police earlier today after a two-day-long standoff. The terror group released a statement today that was published on several jihadist web forums. A portion of the statement, translated by the SITE Intelligence Group, is below:However, Jund al-Khilafa did not claim credit for the murder of the French soldiers...On Tuesday, 19 March, one of the knights of Islam, our brother Yusuf al-Firansi [the French], we ask Allah to accept him, went out in an operation that shook the foundations of Zio-Crusaderdom in the whole world and filled the hearts of the enemies of Allah with fear. While we claim our responsibility for these blessed operations, we say that the crimes that Israel is committing against our people in the pure land of Palestine, and in Gaza in particular, will not pass without punishment. The mujahideen everywhere are determined to retaliate for every drop of blood that was spilled unjustly and aggressively in Palestine, Afghanistan, and other Muslim countries.[More...]

The media made a big deal out of the first three victims - all soldiers - being Muslims of "North African" descent.
But when I look at these soldiers, I just don't see it. I can't tell whether they are Muslim, Christian or Jewish. Not from appearance. And, maybe it's just me, but I also can't tell their nationality or ethnicity. They could be my American neighbors or my British cousins.
They could be citizens of any nation and followers of any religion. But one thing that was evident by their appearance - they were soldiers.
(Toulouse Victims from left to right: Corporal Abel Chennouf and Paratrooper Imad Ibn Ziaten. The third soldier is in critical condition. Our prayers that he fully recovers.)
Why the media instantly latched on background and religious beliefs can only, in my opinion, be attributed to the mainstream media's political correctness attitude. I have no doubt, playing on their ethnicity and Islamic faith was a deliberate ploy to drum up support for their Neo-Nazi narrative.
But what the media has also done to these brave soldiers is disgraced their honor, their valor, their patriotism, and diminished their very existence in order to push a politically correct multiculturalism agenda.
Shame on the media for further exploiting and victimizing these soldiers and their families.

France: Horrifying Account of Murder Of 8yr old Jewish School Girl
My word, what a cowardly bas**rd this killer is
......The local prosecutor, Michel Valet, said that a religious instructor, his two children and another child, the daughter of the school’s director, were killed in Monday’s attack and that a 17-year-old boy was seriously wounded. The killer “shot at everything he could see, children and adults, and some children were chased into the school,” Mr. Valet said.h/t @DaveedGR
The suspect pursued his last victim, an 8-year-old girl [Miriam Mosonego...ed], into the concrete courtyard, seizing and stopping her by her hair, said Nicole Yardeni, who leads the regional branch of the Crif, France’s most prominent Jewish association, and who viewed video surveillance footage of the killing.
His gun appeared to jam at that point, Ms. Yardeni said. Still holding the girl, the killer then changed weapons, from what police have identified as a 9 millimeter pistol to the .45-caliber. He shot her in the head and left, never removing his motorcycle helmet.
“It is unbearable that someone be able to dehumanize children to this point,” Ms. Yardeni said, choking back tears.[More..]

I can confirm that this comment left by Censored31 in this thread is legit. The IP traces to Belgium, where he lives:
Bismillah. I was only briefly arrested on Tuesday but released 8 hours later. Hamdoulillah I have updated the Blog. May Allah give us the victorySo, as per Howie's post, Censored31 was somehow linked to those behind the wave of attacks in Belgium.
We can only hope the authorities have more evidence against him next time.
People like Censored31 who sit comfortably behind their computers claiming "free speech" while writing books praising al Qaeda and inciting others to murder deserve far worse than a brief detention.

"Shariah4Belgium" Leaders Sentenced
Censored31's buddies have been sentenced one and two years each for threats made in a YouTube video against an anti-immigration party . You're next Censored31:
The spokesman of the "Islamic fundamentalist organisation Sharia4Belgium" has been sentenced to two years in prison and also fined 550 euros, Belgian media reported Friday.Their videos are still up at YouTube here. Notice that they fly the flag of al Qaeda while giving lectures (vidcap above).
Fouad Belkacem received the maximum sentence from a judge in the Belgian city of Antwerp while another defendant got a one year sentence.
They faced charges in connection with a video film in which they issued death threats to several leaders of the far right Belgian Vlaams Belang party.
Which should surprise no one since their buddy Censored31's book is entitled al Qaeda Rising.

Sharia4Belgium Spokesman Fouad Belkacem Faces Charges
Well facing charges is overstating it, he did not show up to his indictment or the Belgian equivalent thereof.
ANTWERP / BORGERHOUT - The prosecution has two years in prison and fined 550 euros for advanced Fouad Belkacem (29), spokesman of the radical Muslim movement Sharia4Belgium. He will be prosecuted for inciting hatred and violence against non-Muslims. The case was treated Friday for the Antwerp criminal court. Belkacem did not turn up.That last charge is inciting hatred towards Jews if I'm not mistaken. Laws passed after WWII to fight Nazism.
In recent years appeared regularly movies on the Internet where the spokesman Sharia4Belgium in a relentless way calls for hatred and violence against non-Muslims and calls for the abolition of democracy. A day after the death of Marie-Rose Morel called her illness a punishment from Allah. Filip Dewinter, Bart De Wever and other "enemies of Allah" allowed themselves to expect the same.
According to the prosecution of such statements he crossed the limits of freedom of expression. Attorney Philip Vanneste drew heavily from to Belkacem. "He's not a devout Muslim, but an ordinary criminal," he said, referring to his long criminal record page.
Belkacem was already fourteen convictions in the police court, and four criminal convictions for robbery with violence, rebelliousness, defamation, threats and breaches of anti-racismewet.
Of particular note is the man's criminal record. Remember the recent shooting in Belgium were perpetrated by a man of Moroccan descent. Although the reporting on the incident played up his criminal past not his state of origin which is a Majority Muslim nation. Which may indeed be true in that case.
But in this case we see that criminal activity and viewing oneself as a Good Muslim who supports Jihad and Sharia are not mutually exclusive. See there's this neat trick in Islam where crimes committed against perceived infidels are not really crimes under some interpretations of Sharia. It seems Abu Imran prefers that interpretation.
Hat Tip: Internet Haganah.
Also of note he's good buddies with Belgian Jihadi blogger, quitter and general loser Censored31. Long time readers will recognize Censored31 from his trolling here and the number of times we've completely humiliated him. He interviews his buddy Abu Imran aka Fouad Belkacem below.

Terror Supporter and Former Troll Censored31, Banned by Belgian Authorities
Long time readers will remember Censored31 for his hundreds of comments he used to leave. Think of him as a former troll, like Xariff.
It appears that the release of his new book "Al Qaeda on the Rise" plus the fact that one of his friends from the Shariah4Belgium group was recently arrested after they found an AK-47 in his house has finally spurred the Belgian prosecutor's office to get off their rears and take action.
That action, was banning his website. He claims that he was banned because he knew about some sort of conspiracy to cover up an international child porn ring by the Belgian authorities. Right Censored31. It had nothing at all to do with your constant praising of terrorists.
But, never fear, his new website is already up.
Which goes to show that it's not enough to simply take down websites. It takes minutes to put up new websites. I'm not saying that certain sites shouldn't be taken down, but that can't be the end game. It's just one tool in a larger toolbox. If anti-terror laws are to have any teeth, then the terror supporters must be prosecuted.
Look, for instance, at British laws banning a number of Anjem Choudary's hate groups. Each time a group is "banned", Choudary simply forms another group under another name. Whether a group is called "al Muhajiroun", "al-Ghurabaa", or "Islam4UK" it's the same group.

Noted Belgian al Qaeda Supporter Releases Dutch Book Praising al Qaeda which No One Will Read
Congratulations to Censored31 on his new Dutch eBook "Al-Qaïda in opmars", which is "Al Qaeda on the Rise" in English.
Here's his promo, intentionally hotlinked.
I'd say it's dangerous propaganda, but it's not. How can something be dangerous that no one will read?

German w/ al Qaeda Links Arrested
A 27-year-old German man was arrested Thursday by a police special-ops team in the western city of Bochum on charges he was part of an al-Qaida bomb plot in Europe, the federal prosecutors' office said.
Suspect Halil S. is accused of being part of the so-called "Duesseldorf Cell." The group was allegedly plotting the bombing before its three main members were swept up by police in April, prosecutors' spokesman Marcus Koehler said.
At the time of their arrest, authorities said the three were working on making a shrapnel-laden bomb to attack a crowded place inside Germany, such as a bus, and were experimenting with explosives and detonators but had not chosen a specific target.
Halil S., whose last name was not provided in accordance with German privacy laws, is accused of supporting the three with financial and logistical help, and then attempting to carry forward their plot after their arrest, Koehler said.

Belgian Muslimas Beat Jewish Girl
Five Muslim Moroccan girls in Belgium beat a 13-year-old classmate, called her a "dirty Jew” and told her to "return your country.”For those of you not familiar Censored31 is an al-Qaeda and terrorist supporting blog based in Belgium. We've flagged and complained many times about its hate filled anti-Semitic propaganda to no avail.
The girl, Oceane Sluijzer, has filed a complaint with police after the anti-Semitic attack at a sports training center. The attackers were identified and questioned by police.
Jewish legislator Viviane Teitelbaum of Brussels denounced the "silence" of political leaders and most of media after this attack.

Video: Bosnian Terrorist Gets Shot in Front of US Embassy
I don't know if you've seen the other videos of the shooter today at the US embassy in Bosnia, but it's pretty uninteresting. They guy is literally walking around on the street for half an hour. Just pacing back and forth. Meanwhile, the cops mostly cower a block away.
What gives with that? Are they, like their counterparts in Norway, unarmed? Or are they just waiting for their version of the SWAT team to arrive?
In any event, here's a video that mashes a couple of different angles of the Islamist terrorist getting shot by a sniper. It's mildly graphic, but I wouldn't rate it more than PG-13.

UPDATE: Cuban YouTube Terrorist ID'd -- José Ernesto Mora Feliu
Hola, mom? I'm in jail! I like it here ...
An update on the Cuban national arrested in Spain for supporting al Qaeda.
To his jihadi friends José Ernesto Mora Feliu would have been known as Khalid Siyf Allahu Almaslul. I guess Cubans just dig those long names.
What's interesting is this guy was all over the internet. How all over? He seems to have produced over 1,000 YouTube videos himself -- and that's just one place he liked to hang out on the 'net.
And look what group of hackers this al Qaeda linked terrorist wanted to join:
Imagine that, a guy who's goal in life is to join al Qaeda also wants to volunteer for Julian Assange's fanboys in Anonymous!

Stockholm: Swedish Terror Suspects Arrested Over Weekend Are From Somalia, Iraq
STOCKHOLM (AP) — Four men arrested on terror suspicions over the weekend in Sweden's second-largest city were identified in court documents Monday as local residents in their 20s and originally from Somalia and Iraq.[Emphasis mine...ed]I wonder if they have any connection to Taimour Abdulwahab who blew himself up in downtown Stockholm in December. He was trained in Iraq...
Police detained the men — three of whom are Swedish citizens — in a sting in the west coast city of Goteborg on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, and a prosecutor said they were being interrogated on suspicions of preparing a terrorist act.[...]
Swedish authorities didn't name the suspects, but court documents show they are aged 23 to 26 and living in the Goteborg area. Three are of Somali origin and one was born in Iraq. One is a Somali citizen and the rest are Swedish nationals.
Swedish tabloid Expressen, citing unnamed police sources, said investigators suspect the men of connections to al-Shabab, an al-Qaida-linked insurgent group in Somalia, and that they had acquired, or were trying to acquire, firearms, explosives and hand grenades.
UPDATE: Swedish news site Expressen breaks it down a bit more
[googlish]LONDON. Police suspect that the men who were arrested at the Gothenburg Central Station, was on his way to stage a terrorist attack with firearms and bombs. The men who are arrested on suspicion of preparing to commit terrorist is between 23 and 26 years old and comes from Gothenburg. Police sources say the GT that the suspects linked to terrorist network al-Shabab.
On Monday, the district court lifted the secrecy surrounding the four arrested terror suspects' identities. The men are 23, 24, 25 and 26 years old and is from Gothenburg. Three of the men are Swedish citizens, two of which were born in an African country and one in a country in the Middle East. The fourth, also from Africa, has a Swedish residence permit.

Two German Arrested in Bomb Plot, Mosque Searched
Are the Germans finally getting serious about Islamist terrorism?
Two men were arrested here Thursday on suspicion of planning a bombing attack, after the police tracked their purchases of bomb-making materials, a Berlin police spokesman said.Right, no suspicion the mosque had anything to do with it. Which is why they searched it. Because nothing suspicious was going on there.
The men, a 24-year-old German of Lebanese descent and a 28-year-old from Gaza, had obtained chemicals that could be used to build explosives, according to the spokesman, Martin Otter, who did not provide any specifics about the chemicals. He said the effort to obtain them was what brought the men to the attention of the police....
The police searched the apartments of the two men on Thursday. They also searched an Islamic cultural center, but said that there was no suspicion that the director or members of the center were involved in any plot.

Knock on Wood
Didn't they used to say this about al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula right before the Christmas Day underwear bombing plot went south? France: Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has no ability to strike Europe.

A high speed train was stopped and evacuated today in Germany. It was feared that a bomb may have been on the train. No explosives were found.
What prompted the evacuation?
a CD-ROM found on the train pointed to an Islamic terrorist link.Thanks to JM Berger.
I'd avoid riding on trains today. Especially in Europe.

Good News: Belgian Islamist Who Wants to Nuke France Still on YouTube
Ah, what would global jihad be without YouTube? Today's smackdown features Abu Imran of Shariah4Belgium. That would be the same guy and same group that recently called on Muslims to nuke France. At least 18 who are either members or who are closely tied to the group have been arrested on terror related charges. Unfortunately, Censored31 was not one of them.
