All the elements of global disruption are being brought together. From Egypt to Tatarstan, across Europe and Asia, and in the United States, dissent is being fomented into a caustic brew, etching through the layers of civility and social composure we rely on for the daily operation of civil society. As with most chemical reactions, the heat produced only increases the volatility of the factions involved, and further accelerates the reaction process…until it conflagrates fully. Here are just a few tastes of what is currently brewing around the globe –
(Jamestown Foundation) On July 19, a double attack against the official Islamic leadership of Tatarstan took place in the republic’s capital, Kazan. In the space of 15 minutes, the mufti of the republic, Ildus Faizov, and his deputy, Valiullu Yakupov, came under attack in two different locations. Yakupov was gunned down at the entrance of the apartment block where he lived. Faizov’s car was blown up, but the mufti survived as he managed to get out of the car after an initial smaller explosion. However, both of his legs were broken in the incident.
(Tatar-Inform, a div. of Pravda) via [Google Translate] – July 19, 2012 -President of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov announced the reward citizens for information that will facilitate the disclosure of today’s crimes against the chairman of RT Muslim Religious Ildusa Fayzova and the head of the Training Division of the RT MRB Yakupova Waliullah . This is the President of the Republic of Tatarstan, said at an emergency meeting via video conference with the heads of municipalities of the country.
“Today in Kazan resonance committed a crime – an act of terrorism – reminded the President of Tatarstan, opening the meeting. – Cut short the life of one of the leaders of our SAM RT, head of the Spiritual Administration of Muslims is in the hospital . Law enforcement agencies of the republic are conducted all necessary investigations. I officially declare a million rubles as a reward to anyone who provides information useful for the investigation. ” The press office of the President of the Republic of Tatarstan.
Egypt, Libya, Syria, and the rest of the ‘Arab Spring’ unrest, which is far from over, are the present focus of a wave of civil unrest which has been ignited across the world over the past 20 years. Taking a macro view over that period, we can see the scope and breadth of the challenges we presently face. But we, as Americans, have faced them before – Woodrow Wilson and the Progressive Globalists encouraged a wave of revolution in the Mid East in the 1916-1925 period. Their agenda is the same now as it was then.
In the early 90’s there was a cluster of unrest in Bosnia/Hezegovina [also here], Croatia, Serbia, Kosovo, and Macedonia , and these areas are simmering with unrest to this day. These conflicts are alleged to have arisen from the breakup of the former Soviet Union, but other forces appear to be at work, particularly the rise of radicalized Islam, and certain well-established ethnocentric/nazi organizations such as The Black Hand and which still operate under several different names, and with new partnerships such as the alliance between partisan groups and larger trans-national terrorist organizations such as Al Qaida, Amal, Hezbollah, and Hamas.
In Africa, perennial unrest is the norm, and violence over sectarian, racial, and religious differences is so endemic that there are often conflicts of various natures which overlap geographically. Sorting out the motivations for violence on the African continent is, often, too daunting a chore to even undertake, yet the rising star of African terrorism is, again, the core groups of global radicalized islam and their jihaddi recruitment programs – Al Shabaab [also here], Boko Haram, Al Qaida Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and Al Qaida Arab Peninsula (AQAP) [also here] are all active in various regions of the African continent, and all have external funding, training, and /or supply of arms provided by global radical islamic groups –
Yemen Drone strikes and other airstrikes in Yemen have dramatically increased this year. Obama has authorized at least 41 strikes, the majority of them this year, according to figures compiled by the Washington-based New America Foundation. At least 10 alleged militants were killed in two separate strikes on Tuesday [8 August 2012], Yemen’s official news agency said.
Also from Yemen-
MAY 21, 2012: AQAP claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing at a rehearsal for a military parade in Sana’a, Yemen’s capital, killed over 90 people. The blast occurred in al Sab’een Square, near the presidential palace, and may have targeted Yemen’s Minister of Defense, Major General Mohammed Nasser Ahmed. The bomber was disguised as a soldier.
MAY 8, 2012: U.S. officials reported that the CIA has thwarted a plot allegedly by al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) to blow up a U.S.-bound airliner using a refined improvised explosive device (IED). The bomb was seized by an undercover agent, who successfully infiltrated a bomb cell in Yemen according to ABC News. An international intelligence official said that the inside source was “safely out of Yemen,” and successfully transported the bomb to Saudi Arabia.
MAY 1, 2012: Suspected al Qaeda gunmen wounded two employees, a Frenchman and a Yemeni, of the French oil company Total and killed a Yemeni soldier escorting them in an attack outside of Sayun in Hadramawt governorate. They pulled up alongside the Total employees’ car and opened fire. The Yemeni employee, Suhail al Jawfi, later succumbed to his injuries.
Somalia – Denial of access by al Shabaab militants, and in some cases by other armed militias, is the single greatest obstacle to the provision of humanitarian assistance, as noted in the UN’s most recent monitoring group report. Al Shabaab not only creates a prohibitive security environment, but also restricts humanitarian operations in southern Somalia. The group has banned many international aid agencies from operating within territories under its control. Al Shabaab has enforced this ban with violence: militants raid local offices, destroy foodstuffs and medical supplies, and kidnap aid workers.
Nigeria -The US has become increasingly concerned about the threat posed by militant groups in west Africa such as the Islamist Boko Haram in Nigeria and cells of al-Qaida linked fighters in northern Mali. The security situation in Nigeria has deteriorated to the point where the movement of U.S. embassy workers is often restricted. Clinton will spend only about five hours on the ground and will not spend the night in Abuja, where the hotel traditionally used by visiting U.S. dignitaries has been the target of terrorist threats.
Boko Haram seeks the strict implementation of Shariah, or Islamist law, across Nigeria. The terrorist group is held responsible for more than 650 deaths this year alone according to an Associated Press count. The group’s gain in strength and lethality has led some US lawmakers to demand that Boko Haram be designated a “foreign terrorist organization” and subjected to enhanced sanctions.
In Asia, similar clusters of unrest and revolt have also occurred, and again, the root of these events has been tied to radicalized islamic groups such as Abu Sayyaf, MILF (Moro Islamic Liberation Front), LeT (Lashkar-e-Taiba), Jemmiah Islamiah (JI), Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami (HuJI), and other lesser know splinter groups with radical islamic charters. These attacks and ongoing programs of insurrection through terror are spread throughout asia, occurring in Myanmar (Burma), Mumbai , The Philipines, Malaysia [additional][more][even more], Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand [AlQaida in Thailand], but the core of these organizations, organizationally and ideologically, as well as financially, always ties back to three key nations – Turkey, Iran, and Saudi Arabia, which form the core of the global islamic jihaddi movement – each of these three nations seeks to be the center of a new global Caliphate (Lit. a “New World Order” in Arabic).
Why does all of this matter to us, safe on American soil, and with our own troubles to occupy us? Because these issues are not as far away as they would seem – they are right here among us, and the agitators of unrest around the world have every intent of instigating revolt and even civil war here, if they can.
We can only wonder at the agenda of the mainstream media for failing to report on the infiltration of violent radicalism from other parts of the world into American society, and its implicit danger to our communities, our economy, and our soverignty as a people.
The contrived turmoil in the middle east since 1948, and the subsequent exporting of islamic terrorism to the rest of the world, is a timeline of bad politics and dirty money, but it is no accident – the creation of Al Fatah in 1955, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in 1963 and Islamic AMAL in 1973, the Arab-Israeli war of 1967, The “Black September” of Jordan in 1970, The Munich Olympic Massacre in 1972, the Yom Kippur War of 1973, the 1979 islamic revolution in Iran, the 1979-1989 war in Lebanon where 241 US Marines were killed as well as UN peace-keepers from other nations in 1983, the WTC bombing in 1993, the bombing of US Airforce personnel at the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia in 1996, the bombing of two American Embassies in Africa in 1998, the attack on the USS Cole in 2000, the attacks on 9/11/2001, and the bombing of the Hebrew University cafeteria in 2002 were not isolated events – they are but the tip of an iceberg which the citizens of these United States can no longer afford to ignore.
Saudi Arabia and Iran have been, for at least the last 60 years, the two financial centers of this growing movement of global islamic terrorism – representing the Sunni and Shi’a sects of the cult of Islam, respectively, they are fighting an ideological war for absolute control of the world under their respective traditions and interpretations of Sharia law. Both have their eyes set on conquest of the entire world, particularly the United States. They recognize no bounds in this ideological war – they will use terrorism, invasion by illegal immigration, economic attacks, and theft-by-deception of corporate and government entities by infiltration, among other Asymmetric Warfare and/or 5th Generation Warfare tactics.
The radical Islamists are being encouraged and funded by our own government, and by other western governments which have been infiltrated by progressive, One World Government types. It has happened before. As I mentioned above, a wave of revolution ran through the Mid-East in the 1918-1929 period, and was encouraged by the globalist elites, even including Woodrow Wilson – with his 1919 “14 Points” speech and other less reported actions. That year’s events demonstrate that the global diffusion of information and expectations — so vividly on display in Tahrir Square this past winter — is not a result of the Internet and social media. The inspirational rhetoric of U.S. President Woodrow Wilson’s Fourteen Points speech, which helped spark the 1919 upheavals, made its way around the world by telegraph. The uprisings of 1919 also suggest that the calculated spread of popular movements, seen across the Arab world last winter, is not a new phenomenon. The Egyptian Facebook campaigners are the modern incarnation of Arab nationalist networks whose broadsheets disseminated strategies for civil disobedience throughout the region in the years after World War I.
[Author’s observation – do the events of 1918-1929 have more than a passing similarity to the events of 1993-2009? Major terrorist attacks, the fall of governments, and a world financial crisis… and the Globalists pulling the strings and cheerleading [and funding] it all behind the scenes. Yeah – I’m working on documenting the parallels more thoroughly. Stay tuned…]
One pertinent example of this threat is the recent chain of events in North Carolina –
(Raleigh, NC) A North Carolina man sentenced to prison recently as part of a homegrown terrorist ring has been accused in a federal court document of plotting to kill witnesses who testified against him at trial.
An affidavit unsealed in federal court Monday accuses Hysen Sherifi of plotting against the witnesses from his jail cell. Authorities say an FBI informant posing as a hit man met with Sherifi’s brother and a female friend and accepted $5,000 and a photo of an intended victim.
FBI agents have arrested the brother, Shkumbin Sherifi, and Nevine Aly Elshiekh, a school teacher. Now in federal custody at the New Hanover County Jail, each is charged with a felony count of use of interstate commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire.
Hysen Sherifi, 27, was sentenced to 45 years in prison earlier this month in what prosecutors described as a conspiracy to attack the Marine base at Quantico, Va., and targets abroad. Five others, including construction contractor Daniel Patrick Boyd, have been sentenced to federal prison terms for terrorism charges related to raising money, stockpiling weapons and training in preparation for jihadist attacks.
(Fox News) December 2008 – Dozens of young Somali men in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area have disappeared in recent months, causing community members and U.S. intelligence officials to fear that they are joining jihadist groups in Somalia. Officials are especially concerned that some of the men may be destined to return to the U.S. after they have received terrorist training.
The missing young men have been the focus of some attention since late October, when Shirwa Ahmed, a naturalized U.S. citizen, died in a suicide bombing in northern Somalia. Ahmed was a 1999 graduate of Minneapolis’s Roosevelt High School.
Events like the one in North Carolina are happening all over the United States, every month, but either are not interdicted at all, or if they are, are not accurately reported to identify the source of the insurrectionary action. If young men from Minneapolis can be recruited into Al Qaida to fight against the government in Somalia, they can also be recruited to commit acts of terror here in the US. Anyone who states that “we haven’t seen any terrorism in America since 9/11 is either ignorant of the facts, or has ulterior motives in denying the truth…
