Australian Terror Recruiter Mohammad Ali Baryalei Is So Thunderstruck

He's totally 100% dead Jim!

AUSTRALIA’S most senior ­Islamic State fighter, who allegedly instigated a plot to behead a random member of the public in Sydney’s streets last month, has been killed in a coalition airstrike on the Syrian border town of ­Kobane, his friends have claimed.

Authorities were working last night to verify reports that ­Mohammad Ali Baryalei was “martyred’’ three days ago while fighting with Islamic State, the terror group to which he allegedly recruited scores of young Aus­tralians. The former drug-­abusing Kings Cross bouncer would be the first Australian fighter killed in the US-led bombing campaign that has been striking Islamic State targets inside Syria and Iraq since August.

Two of Baryalei’s Syria-based friends, who were fellow alumni of the Sydney “Street Dawah” group he led, told The Australian the one-time bit-part actor was killed in an airstrike at least three days ago in Kobane.

Mohamed Zuhbi and Abdul Salam Mahmoud, who have been undertaking humanitarian work focused on the Syrian port city of Lattakia, outside Islamic State’s caliphate, said the reports of Bary­alei’s demise were true.

“It was an airstrike, not sure by whom,” Mr Zuhbi said in an ­online interview with The Aus­tralian. “I personally received news from a brother who was with him for the most part of his journey so I believe it is true.”

See that's him right there! The one running for his life.... and losing.

You're welcome Australia, it was nothing.

Cornhole Watch: Oded Orbac Needs 25 Year Supply of Astroglide

Yahoo:

Oded Orbach, one of two U.S. citizens among a group of men accused in 2011 of trying to sell weapons to people they thought were Taliban militants, was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Wednesday in Manhattan federal court.

Orbach, 55, and former U.S. Army translator Alwar Pouryan, the other U.S. citizen netted in a sting, were convicted in April of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and conspiring to acquire anti-aircraft missiles.

He was willing to give weapons to kill US soldiers in exchange for heroin.

Imam & 2 Others Sentenced in LA for Helping Shabaab

I emphasized the imam part because if this was a Baptist minister or a Catholic priest, it would be all over the news -- and rightly so. But we hold Muslims to such a low standard that this kind of story is back page everywhere except in LA -- and even there it's not the headline.

You mean a cleric was sending money to terrorists!?!?!?

Oh, he was Muslim. Eh, big deal:

Three Somali immigrants — an imam, a cabdriver and an employee of a money transmitting business — were sentenced Monday to federal prison for aiding a terrorist group in their homeland.

Basaaly Saeed Moalin, 36, the cabdriver, was sentenced to 18 years. Mohamed Mohamed Mohamud, 41, the imam, was sentenced to 13 years. Issa Doreh, 56, the employee of the money transmitting business, was sentenced to 10 years.

The three were convicted of a conspiracy to send money from San Diego to Somalia to help al-Shabaab, termed by the U.S. government as a terrorist group linked with Al Qaeda attempting to topple the shaky governments in Somalia, Yemen and elsewhere.

Thanks to Rahm at Terror Free Somalia.

Family Claims al Libi Innocent Pizza Delivery Boy Who Just Happens to be Good Friends w/ Osama bin Laden

fbi_anas_al_libi.JPG

Your mid-morning laugh:

The family of Abu Anas al-Libi, the alleged al-Qaeda leader seized by American forces in Libya, last night claimed he was innocent and had been working in a pizza restaurant while in Britain, not masterminding international terror attacks....

He described how his own childhood had been spent on the run, leaving primary school in Manchester for a life first in Afghanistan, where his father became close to Osama bin Laden, and then in prison in Iran.

But he insisted his father had gone to Afghanistan to “help the oppressed” and was innocent of the murders of 224 people in the twin bombings of the US embassies in Nairobi and Dar es-Salaam, of which he is accused by the US.

You'll have to read the rest to see what else this pile of poo had to say about his father. I have a three word description of the words guys like this use: hi lar ious.

See, my Dad couldn't be a terrorist because he's a "normal guy".

He couldn't be a terrorist because he "had a job".

He couldn't be a terrorist because he was just "helping people" in Afghanistan.

He couldn't be a terrorist because he was just Osama bin Laden's "body guard".

Oh, and he was forced to leave the UK because the police were "harassing" his father.

Because terrorists never seem to be just normal guys, with jobs, who think that killing infidels is really just a way of helping people get out from under their thumbs. Also, you're not a "real" terrorist if you were just a regular foot soldier terrorist. Only the top guys should count as "real terrorists". And when the police start investigating you for your terror connections it's all a conspiracy to harass Muslims.

And the thing is, I think this guy actually believes what he's saying because in his universe the words he uses to describe reality are in fact not connected to reality at all. Hence, the terrorists are just freedom fighters.

You know who the real terrorists are don't you, infidels? Look in the mirror.

Anonymous U.S. Officials: FBI ID's Benghazi Suspects But No Arrests & Stuff

This is not the flag you are looking for: A video is what you seek

Thanks Bronco!

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. officials say they have identified five men they believe might be behind the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, last year. The officials say they have enough evidence to justify seizing them by military force as suspected terroristsbut not enough proof to try them in a U.S. civilian court as the Obama administration prefers.

So the officials say the men remain at large while the FBI gathers more evidence

AP better be careful as this appears to be another 'intel leak'. The underlined bold above isn't gonna go over too well with the Bronco administration.

We can't seize them as 'suspected terrorists'? Huh?

Nothing to see here people, move along. All of this is irrelevant.

Surviving Boston Bomber May Have Killed Brother

Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev not only left his brother after a gunfight with police, he actually ran over his injured brother:

So much for honor among Jihadists.

Update by SH: Watertown Police Chief Edward Deveau gave more details Saturday about brotherly love by tread marks

“[Tamerlan] all of a sudden comes out from under cover and just starts walking down the street, shooting at our police officers, trying to get closer,” Deveau said. “Now, my closest officer is five to 10 feet away, and they’re exchanging gunfire between them. And he runs out of ammunition — the bad guy — and so one of my police officers comes off the side and tackles him in the street.

“We’re trying to get him handcuffed. There’s two or three police officers handcuffing him in the street — the older brother. At the same time, at the last minute — they obviously have tunnel vision, it’s a very, very stressful situation — one of them yells out, ‘Look out!’ and here comes the black SUV, the carjacked car, directly at them. They dive out of the way, and he (the younger brother) drives over his brother and drags him a short distance down the street.”

Gee, that had to have hurt real bad, emotionally and physically, to have your own bro do that to you.

Oh well.

Anzor Tsarnaev spoke to ABC News from his home in the Russian city of Makhachkala as Boston police carried out an intense dragnet for his son Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. [...]

The elder Tsarnaev insisted that his sons were innocent, but said he would appeal to his son to "surrender peacefully."

"Give up. Give up. You have a bright future ahead of you. Come home to Russia," the dad said.

Up To $5 Million Reward Each For Sudanese Terrorists Mohamed Makawi Ibrahim Mohamed &
Abdelbasit Alhaj Alhassan Haj Hamad

Yesterday the State Dept announced Terrorist Designations of Abdelbasit Alhaj Alhassan Haj Hamad and Mohamed Makawi Ibrahim Mohamed

The U.S. Department of State has designated Abdelbasit Alhaj Alhassan Haj Hamad and Mohamed Makawi Ibrahim Mohamed under Executive Order 13224, which targets terrorists and those providing support to terrorists or acts of terrorism. As a result of this designation, all property subject to U.S. jurisdiction in which Abdelbasit and Makawi have any interest is blocked and any assets they may have under U.S. jurisdiction are frozen. U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in transactions with them. This action will help stem the flow of financial and other assistance to these terrorists.

Abdelbasit and Makawi participated in an armed attack in Khartoum, Sudan on January 1, 2008, which resulted in the deaths of a U.S. diplomat serving with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), John Michael Granville, and Adbelrahman Abbas Rahama, a Sudanese USAID employee. Abdelbasit shot Granville and Makawi killed Abbas Rahama during the attack. Both Abdelbasit and Makawi were convicted of murder and sentenced to death in a Sudanese criminal court in 2009. In 2010, they killed a Sudanese police officer and wounded another while escaping from prison. They remain at large.

The attack occurred when Granville and Abbas were leaving a New Year’s Eve party in Khartoum. Abdelbasit shot Granville and Makawi killed Abbas Rahama during the attack. Both men and two co-conspirators were convicted of murder and sentenced to death in a Sudanese criminal court in 2009. In 2010, they killed a Sudanese police officer and wounded another while escaping from a maximum security prison through a tunnel. One of the other escapees was captured; another was reportedly killed in Somalia in May 2011.

Up to $5 Million each has now been offered in the Rewards for Justice Program.

UK: Al Qaeda Operative Abid Naseer Extradited To America!

Abid_Nasser_zps896837f4

Abid lost his appeal Heartache for him, cornhole watch for us!

BBC

A man accused of leading an al-Qaeda plot to set off bombs in Manchester has been extradited to the US.

Abid Naseer has been described by a High Court judge as an "al-Qaeda operative" who "poses a serious threat to the national security of the UK".

UK prosecutors said there was not enough evidence to charge him.

However, the US wants to put him on trial, arguing the Manchester plot was part of a wider conspiracy to also bomb New York.

In December his bid to stop the extradition was thrown out of the European Court of Human Rights, where his lawyers had argued he could be tortured if returned to Pakistan from the US[..]

The removal of Mr Naseer follows three months after Abu Hamza al-Masri[ Hook Hamza...ed], Babar Ahmad[ Azzam.com Webmaster..ed] and three other terrorism suspects were finally extradited to the US after years of legal wrangling.

They will stand trial later this year. If convicted, Mr Naseer faces a possible life sentence in a supermax prison.

A Home Office spokesperson said: "We can confirm that today Abid Naseer was extradited to America where he is accused of terrorism offences. His case is now a matter for the US authorities.".

Heh..

Two Arrested in Connection With #Toulouse Terror Attack in March of 2012

France24

French police arrested two people on Tuesday in connection with the attacks by extremist gunman Mohamed Merah, whose shooting spree in and around the southern city of Toulouse this year left seven people dead.

One man described by police as a member of the traveller community who converted to Islam was detained on suspicion of having provided aid to Merah in carrying out the March attacks that shocked France.

He was arrested without incident at his home in the town of Albi, about 70 kilometres (45 miles) northeast of Toulouse, where he was to be taken for questioning, police sources said.

His former partner was arrested separately at her home in Toulouse, with police saying she may have been aware of his involvement and failed to inform authorities.

The nature of his alleged involvement was unclear, but investigators have been searching for a suspected "third man" believed to have been with Merah and his brother Abdelkader during the theft of a scooter used in the attacks.

Merah shot a rabbi, three Jewish schoolchildren and three French paratroopers in March before being shot dead in a police siege in Toulouse.[More...

Le Figaro has more[googish]
A man, a member of the traveler community, was arrested in a small town between Albi and Castres, where he lives so sedentary. A source close to the case said Le Figaro that this 38 year old man who had converted to Islam for some time. He was close to Mohamed Merah, and perhaps his brother Abdelkader, he had known in the city of Toulouse Izards where they grew up together.

The suspect is already stuck in nine cases including cases of theft, outrage and rebellion, abuse or weakness of drunken driving. It was a priori unknown intelligence. His ex-girlfriend has meanwhile been arrested in Toulouse to determine its possible involvement

In November, Merah's sister stated she was proud her brother killed the Rabbi and the three Jewish children
"I am proud of my brother, he fought till the end (...) I think well of Bin Laden, I told the cops, I can tell you." She does not hide its antisemitic sentiments: "The Jews, all those who are massacring Muslims, I hate them." "The Salafists, they act," she said again. "Me and (Abdel) Kader, it supports the Salafists, Mohamed took the plunge. I am proud, proud, proud, "she shouted.

Four Foreign Trained Islamists Jailed in Azerbaijan for Eurovision Terror Plot

Doorway to the Ministry of Terrorism

[Image credit: Zionist Bandwidth Bitch]

Mad Mullah terror plot foiled:

BAKU - Four foreign-trained Islamists were sentenced to up to 14 years in jail in Azerbaijan on Monday for plotting "terrorist attacks" on the eve of this year's Eurovision song contest in Baku, the latest crackdown on militancy in the oil-rich state.

After 70 years of Soviet-rule, most Azeris have a relaxed attitude towards religion, but Azerbaijan, a NATO ally bordering Iran on the Caspian Sea, says it is combating increasing Islamist extremism with ties to Tehran.

A court official who declined to be named told Reuters the four were sentenced to between 12 and 14 years in jail for crimes including treason, plotting terrorist attacks, arms smuggling and having links with Iran's Revolutionary Guards.

Security forces killed the group's alleged leader in an operation in April and the other members of the group were arrested a month before Baku hosted Eurovision in May.

Gee, Tehran/Iranian Revolutionary Guards keep popping up in terrorism cases. You would think Iran was a state sponsor of terrorism. Oh, wait...

Morocco: 'Terror Cell' Busted

Daily Star

RABAT: Morocco said on Monday it has arrested eight people suspected of plotting attacks against strategic sites, less than a week after the kingdom announced it had dismantled a "terrorist" cell.

The latest arrests targeted a group called Ansar al-Sharia in the Islamic Maghreb, dismantling the cell whose eight members planned to "commit acts of sabotage against strategic sites," said an interior ministry statement.

The cell's targets included "sensitive buildings, security headquarters and tourist sites in several Moroccan cities," it added.

The suspects "were developing contacts with terrorist groups linked to Al-Qaeda," whose North African franchise[AQIM..ed] is active in the Sahel region and in northern Mali, the statement said.[More...]

Libyan Ansar al-Shariah[Partisans of Islamic Law] is responsible for the attack on the Benghazi compound and bragged to AQIM about it.

Cornhole Watch: Terror Trial Begins in Britain

Mujahidiots wanted to be splodey dopes

London (CNN) -- Three men accused of plotting a suicide bombing campaign in Britain went on trial Monday.

If authorities hadn't foiled the plan, the scale of the terrorist attack might have been bigger than the 2005 London bombings that killed more than 50 people, prosecutor Brian Altman said. One of the alleged jihadists described the plot as "another 9/11," he said.

Irfan Naseer, Irfan Khalid and Ashik Ali [pictured above...ed] were arrested in September 2011 in what authorities called a major operation.

Altman told jurors that the men planned to use up to eight bombs inside rucksacks in suicide attacks aimed at causing mass casualties.

In the house where they allegedly researched and experimented with bombs, investigators found an audio recording of slain al Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, Altman said.

If they were found guilty of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts, they would face maximum sentences of life in prison. All three men deny the charges.[More..]

UK: NHS Doctor, Shajul Islam, Accused of Kidnapping 2 Journalists in Syria Makes 1st Court Appearance

shajul_islam_ukcourtsketch.jpeg

Via the Telegraph

Shajul Islam, 26, appeared in court yesterday charged with his role in the gang which kidnapped and injured British photographer John Cantlie and Dutch journalist Jeroen Oerlemans in July this year[...]

Mozammel Hossain, defending him, said: "This is a bright young man with a very promising future in this country as an NHS doctor.

"He has a first-class degree in biochemistry. He has qualified as a doctor and completed his training.

It is alleged that Islam, with others, unlawfully and injuriously imprisoned John Cantlie and Jeroen Oerlemans against their will, between July 17 and 26. He was remanded in custody and is next due to appear at the Old Bailey on November 2.

It has been alleged that the ringleader of the group, which wants to establish Shariah law in Syria, is also a British resident who is still at large and being hunted by the police and security services.

He is said to head the 40-strong group, which also includes Chechnans and other foreign jihadists.

The intelligence services have previously warned as many as 100 Britons may have travelled to Syria to either join jihadi groups or to fight alongside rebel forces attacking the regime of Bashar al – Assad.

Pushing Shariah 4 name that country brings to mind such al-Qaeda loving Islamists as UK's Anjem Choudary and convicted terrorist, Omar ( the goat humping) Bakri Mohammed.

The arrest of Shajul is a very interesting development, to say the least.

Kenya: Arrested Iranian Agents 30-Bomb Plot

They planned on using one hell of a lot of BOOM, 15 kilos of RDX worth.

They scoped out multiple targets:

The pair made notes during drive-by surveillance in the Kenyan capital but did not take photographs for fear of raising suspicions, police said[...]

Ahmad Abolfathi Mohammad and Sayed Mansour Mousavi were arrested after Kenyan police linked them to a package containing explosives delivered to a warehouse near Mombasa, Kenya's main coast city.

The pair planned to detonate up to 30 bombs targeting British, US, Israeli and Saudi Arabian interests, including tourist facilities and commercial and government buildings, investigators believe.[...]

"They were driving around Nairobi, they went past the British High Commission, they went past the [Nairobi Hebrew Congregation] synagogue in town, they went to the Israeli embassy. It is very clear that they were casing these places, that they were up to no good. From what we saw, their intention was clear to plan and execute terrorism attacks."

Report: Al Qaeda Trained Mumbai Attackers

Apparently, the attack would have been a lot a lot worse, my gawd.

Had all the 25 militants completed the training and made it to Mumbai the carnage would have been much worse," a senior Indian official told the Deccan Chronicle.
This is an update on my prior post: Key Mumbai Plotter Arrested in Saudi Arabia

Via the LWJ[Image credit also]

Sayed Zabiuddin Ansari, the alleged facilitator of the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, has proven to be a "treasure trove of information" for Indian investigators, according to new reports in the Indian press. Ansari has reportedly revealed that al Qaeda was tasked with training the Mumbai attackers in a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) training camp close to the Pakistan-Iran border.

It is not entirely clear where the camp was located, as Ansari has been unable to pinpoint its location for investigators. But according to at least one article, the LeT camp was inside Afghanistan. LeT terrorists are known to operate in both Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Ansari (a.k.a. Abu Jundal) was captured inside Saudi Arabia and then transferred to Indian custody in June. [See LWJ report, Key Mumbai plotter arrested in Saudi Arabia.]

The Deccan Chronicle reports that Ansari's interrogation reports say he has explained that there is a "great degree of coordination now between Lashkar, Al Qaeda and even the Taliban."

[Continue reading]

You can also add Pakistan's ISI's cooperation to the group as I noted in my prior post and further stated in LWJ's article above.

Nice prayer bump you have there beotch

Via the LWJ[Image credit also]

A key suspect in the November 2008 Mumbai attacks, Sayed Zabiuddin Ansari, was arrested in Saudi Arabia earlier this month and then turned over to Indian authorities.

Also known as Abu Jundal and Abu Hamza, Ansari has reportedly made significant admissions implicating members of the Pakistani army and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency in the planning of the attack. The Mumbai siege was orchestrated by Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), a longtime proxy of Pakistan's military and intelligence establishment.[emphasis mine..ed]

Ansari allegedly directed Ajmal Kasab, the lone gunman to survive the attack, and other terrorists from a control room in Karachi, Pakistan. As an Indian national, Ansari taught the attackers about Mumbai and Indian culture. Ansari was also reportedly involved in the terrorists' training in a camp run inside Kashmir. The training was headed by Zaki-ur Rehman Lakhvi, LeT's military commander.

Pakistan, our allies[snark, ok?]. No surprise here on this development.

El Grillo1 (thanks MK) linked to this article at NDTV, which notes Jundal used Facebook to hunt for terror recruits. Be sure and read it also as it lists "Top 10 Developments" in this. A good guide aka "cheat sheet" in sorting all of this out.

BTW, besides Facebook, JihadTubers have helped LeT with terror recruiting

Update: The key LeT's senior leader was taken out

An Afghan and coalition security force conducted an operation, in Watahpur district, Kunar province, yesterday.

The target of the operation was Khatab Shafiq, a Lashkar-e-Taiba leader. Khatab Shafiq was the LeT’s senior leader in Kunar province. He was responsible for several attacks against Afghan and coalition forces, and provided money, weapons and training to insurgents in the region

Khatab Shafiq also established multiple insurgent training camps in eastern Afghanistan, where insurgents learned how to use mortars, rockets and machine guns. Most recently, he was involved with teaching insurgents how to build and emplace improvised explosive devices.

During the operation, the security force positively identified Khatab Shafiq among an armed group of insurgents. After determining there were no civilians in the area, the security force engaged the insurgents with a precision airstrike away from all civilian structures.

After the strike, the Afghan and coalition security force conducted a follow-on assessment and confirmed Khatab Shafiq, along with multiple other insurgents, had been killed.

Terrorist Takes Hostages at Toulouse Bank

France24:

Three months after the killings of Toulouse and Montauban in which Mohamed Merah had killed seven people, many individuals are being held hostage in a bank in the Pink City by a man claiming allegiance to al Qaeda.
Earlier in the week two female police officers were murdered in Collobrieres France after they confronted a Muslim man who was purse snatching. One officer fled after the other was shot, the killer followed her into an alley and shot her in the back seven times.

Nothing to see here, move along. Nope not a thing. Racists!

Update: One of the four hostages have been released.

Update II: The situation has been resolved and the hostages are safe and the terrorist was only slightly wounded. Some are describing him as a mental case, we're glad to see the press as finally come around to the idea that support of Islamic terrorist groups is a mental disorder.

Cornhole Watch: Four Convicted in Denmark For Planning Terror Attacks Over Muhammad Cartoons

Windsor Star:

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Four men who planned a shooting spree at the office of a Danish newspaper that published cartoons of the prophet Muhammed were found guilty of terrorism Monday.

The men, Swedish residents of North African and Mideast origin, were arrested in late December 2010 just hours before authorities say they planned to carry out a violent attack on the Jyllands-Posten’s offices in Copenhagen.

Sentencing is expected later in the day, and the men could face about 16 years in prison.

Munir Awad, Omar Abdalla Aboelazm, Mounir Ben Mohamed Dhahri and Sabhi Ben Mohamed Zalouti had been under surveillance by Swedish and Danish intelligence agencies at the time but denied the charges during the trial. The four gave conflicting explanations about the purpose of their journey, which included New Year celebrations in the Danish capital and travel in Sweden.

Lawyers Suspect Kenyan Police in Terror Abduction

So, what's the problem?

Human rights officials accused the Kenyan police Friday of eliminating suspected terrorists after armed men dragged a terror suspect out of a car. He was the third terror suspect to be abducted since April.

Lawyer Mbugua Mureithi said Sylvester Opiyo, also known as Musa Osodo, is the "usual suspect" in terror-related investigations. Opiyo was abducted by armed men Wednesday after the car he was traveling in with five other people broke down in western Kenya, Mureithi said. Police have denied they are holding him.

"When the police begin to say we are not holding that person, that is a very dangerous sign . People are never seen again when police say they don't know where the suspects are," Mureithi said[..]

Police spokesman Eric Kiraithe said Friday the allegation that police are responsible for executions and abductions "is the work of fiction."

The three abductions are not the first time Kenyan police have been accused of extra-judicial actions against security threats. In 2007 the government-funded Kenya National Commission For Human Rights documented the executions and forced disappearances of more than 500 youths associated with a gang known for beheading its victims and running extortion rackets.

Police say Opiyo is one of hundreds of Kenyan youths who are sympathetic to the Somali militant group al-Shabab, which has vowed to attack Kenya in retaliation for its troop deployment.

Shame on the Kenyan police if this is true!

I fibbed on that last part. I don't like the African Taliban and their sympathizers, especially when they behead people. Missing could mean the African Taliban has them or something or dead. Yeah, dead is good.

Islamic Terrorist Calls for Murder of German Anti Sharia Group Members for Insulting Islam

Jihad Watch:

"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):
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.

The terrorist in question is Abū Ibrāhīm al-’Almānī’. Here is a copy of the threat uploaded to Youtube here by Jundullah Studio.

You can find more about Abū Ibrāhīm al-’Almānī’ here at Jihadiology. Note the second entry in this category.

Jund Allah Studio presents a new video message from the Islamic Movement of zbekistan’s Abū Ibrāhīm al-’Almānī: “Yes, We Are Terrorists
The group is upset over Pro NRW's counter protest against al-Qaeda supporters in Germany.

During the counter protest the Pro NRW displayed this image of Muhammad with a bomb for Turban.

NYT

LONDON — Three men have been arrested at Heathrow Airport and held on suspicion of “possessing articles and documents with intent to use them for terrorist purposes overseas,” the police said on Friday.

The suspects, residents of Britain’s second-largest city, Birmingham, were arrested Thursday night as they arrived from Oman. The police did not release their names.

What might those "articles & documents" be?

Cornhole Watch: Domestic Terrorist Tarek Mehanna Gets 17.5 Years

It looks like Jihadi Princess will be waiting a long long time for her dream date with Tarek Mehanna. He'll be dating a large black man named Bubba who refers to him as biyatch in the mean time.

Boston Herald: Convicted al-Qaeda sympathizer Tarek Mehanna this morning was sentenced in federal court in Boston to 17 1/2 years in prison for conspiring with terrorists in a failed plot to murder U.S. soldiers in Iraq. A crowd of ardent supporters in the courtroom gave him a standing ovation after he was given the 210-month sentence.
Mehanna once referred to Osama bin-Laden as his "real father". Well who's your daddy now? Oh yeah, Bubba.

Internet Haganah: In search of al-Qaida's naughty librarian [Muhdar Hussein Almalki]

Via IH forum:

The indictment of Almalki is available here:

http://page4free.biz/2012-04-01/Almalki-indictment.pdf

It includes his known online aliases, but they are transliterated from Arabic to Spanish, so they need to be re-rendered as Arabic.

A quick search through my jihadi forum archives for occurrences of one of his aliases, Sami123, returned over 1,500 records. Looking through those, precious few are of any significance. For the most part what you see are posts like this:[see at link...ed]

In fact, *almost* every one of Sami123's posts, be they on Ekhlaas, Faloja, or Shumukh, are nothing more than a copy and paste of the text you see in the image above.

If we assume for a moment that he actually played an important role in al-Qaida's online operations, his involvement in the password-protected assassination workshop[1] at the Shumukh forum was not very smart - especially if that was the event that triggered the investigation:

Toulouse Killer Had History Of Violence

Despite some claims that Mohammed Merah was "polite, gentle, and courteous" (scroll down to 12:35), a neighbor has come forward saying Merah threatened her and her family.

In one incident, Merah gave her 15-year-old son a quran and then forced him to watch beheading videos. She filed a complaint with police, who did nothing:

The mother filed a complaint with the police, which according to her caused Merah to become upset. “He came to the front of our home, threatened me and hit me. He said that I was an atheist and that I must pay like all the rest of France’s citizens,” she said.

She further stated that Merah claimed he would “wipe out all those who kill Muslims.” She stated that two days after the incident, Merah struck her son and daughter in the presence of eyewitnesses. However, no one intervened. The mother still has a copy of the complaint that was filed, as well as her daughter’s medical documents.

The woman also stated that the “true mind” behind the suspect was his brother Abdelkader, who is currently in police custody. “It is he who brainwashed [Merah] and often flew out of France,” she said.

Abdelkader is ion a path to become a great Islamic leader or Imam. That is, he appears to be good at motivating others to commit violence but he himself keeps his hands clean. In other words, a coward.

It reminds me of their prophet, Muhammad. He would preach the glory of martyrdom, but he made certain he was never in a position to be martyred himself. Not only did he distance himself from the battlefield, but he took extra precautions to ensure his own safety, such as wearing two coats of mail, surrounding himself with bodyguards willing to die for him, and retreating to nearby mountains when the fighting became too intense.

The great example for Muslims to follow.

Senate Study on The Online Radicalization of Zachary Chesser of Revolution Muslim

Government Security News:

The Internet and social media are integral ingredients in the rapid radicalization of homegrown terrorists, said a staff study by the Senate homeland security committee that recommended a coordinated government response to counter online radical propaganda and help communities intervene in the radicalization process.

The report, released on Feb. 27 by the staff of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, was based on the close study of the personal writings of Zachary Chesser, the Bristow, VA man now serving a 25-year sentence for threatening the writers of the South Park television show, soliciting violent jihadists to desensitize law enforcement, and attempting to provide material support to Al-Shabaab.

The study also provides some unique detail into Chesser’s motivations and personality.

The Senate staff said Chesser’s case was a classic case study of how quickly online radicalization can occur compared to the traditional process of face to face contact between an aspirant and an established terrorist group.

The .pdf copy of the study is here.

Jawa report was not mentioned in the study, we were basically robbed. But we're getting really used to that ;)

Foiled Again: Azerbaijan Arrests Terror Suspects

Azerbaijan.jpg

Via JTA

(JTA) -- Suspected terrorists with links to Iran and Hezbollah were arrested in Azerbaijan, while bombs intended for use against Israeli targets in Thailand's capital were discovered hidden in inexpensive portable radios.

The suspects in Azerbaijan are accused of planning terrorist attacks against foreigners in Baku, the Azerbaijan capital, the National Security Ministry said in an announcement Tuesday on Azerbaijan state television. According to reports, the suspects had gathered intelligence on identified targets and bought weapons and explosives.

Last month, at least two men were arrested after planning an attack on two Israeli teachers, Chabad emissaries at the Or Avner school in Baku.

Iranian Terrorists Take Note: Don't Mess With Allah Akhbar

Terrorists partying and bedding with infidel prostitutes learn Allah's wrath:

Thai police: 2 more suspects in terror case

BANGKOK – The three Iranian men detained for allegedly plotting bomb attacks in Bangkok on Israeli diplomats had more than terror on their minds in Thailand. Police said Friday that they had also cavorted with prostitutes at a beach resort.[The prostitutes remembered them because they had never seen such small penises..ed]

The news comes as Thai authorities announced they were searching for two more suspects in the botched bomb plot, including a possible explosives specialist who may have been training the Iranians.

The foiled plan was discovered Tuesday when explosives in the men's rented house blew up by mistake, forcing them to flee. Two were detained in the Thai capital, and a third was captured Wednesday in neighboring Malaysia as he reportedly tried to return to Iran.

And Allah knows best...

Or, more importantly, don't mess with dah Jooos, especially the ones hiding behind trees

Chicago Man Pleads Guilty in Terror Funding Case

How bad is the phenomenon of American citizens supporting terror groups? Bad enough that while reporting on a Somali-American pleading guilty in a terror funding case yesterday, I overlooked the fact that a Chicago man also plead guilty yesterday of providing material support to al Qaeda.

That's one day, two guilty pleas:

A Pakistani-born Chicago taxi driver has pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to al-Qaida as part of a plea deal hammered out recently with prosecutors.

Dressed in an orange jumpsuit and his ankles shackled, Raja Lahrasib Khan told a judge Monday that he was pleading guilty to one of two counts of attempting to provide material support....

Khan was accused in 2010 of taking steps to send cash to Pakistan-based terrorist leader Ilyas Kashmiri.

Good News: Co-Conspirator in Sadat's Murder Now Egyptian MP
Wants His Akhi Ayman al-Zawahiri to Return to Egypt

Long War Journal:

A member of the newly elected Egyptian parliament has called for al Qaeda's emir to return to the country "with his head held high and safely."

Aboud al Zomor, who served as the first emir of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad and was later imprisoned for his role in President Anwar Sadat's assassination, said that he welcomes Ayman al Zawahiri's return to Egypt and that he would be given safe haven, according to a report published yesterday in Al-Sharq Al-Awsat. The report was translated from Arabic by the Foundation For Defense of Democracies.

"When asked if he saw any danger in al Zawahiri's return, al Zomor said that 'he was not a threat to Egypt, the likes of al Zawahiri differed with the previous regime and they were only a danger for this regime and not for Egypt, and now he is liberating Afghanistan and Iraq...'" the report stated. Zomor also lamented that the US would be opposed to Zawahiri's return to Egypt.

Zomor denied having direct contact with members of al Qaeda, and claims to have renounced violence.

"I've distanced myself from that currently because I took the political line and closed the page on the past, as a result of which doors to peaceful action opened for us," he told Al-Sharq Al-Awsat.

Zomor is one of the primary founders of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, the terrorist group that merged with al Qaeda. Zawahiri succeeded Zomor as the group's emir and presided over its merger with bin Laden's terror group in the 1990s.
