Al Qaeda Mushrooms Pose Serious Threat

In terrorism on January 29, 2014 at 17:22

Al Qaeda has long been a monolith, though operating as a Multinational Corporate.

It had a Central Command and the structures though cut off directly from the directly,had a strict Unitary structure.

No longer.

Al Qaeda Splits

Al Qaeda Cells

The Syrian Branch or the Franchisee of the Al Qaeda brushed aside  the instruction from to stay away  by Ayman al-Zawahri, the leader of Al Qaeda

It was the first time in the history of the world’s most notorious terrorist organization that one of the affiliates had publicly broken with the international leadership, and the news sent shock waves through the online forums where jihadists meet. In no uncertain terms, ISIS had gone rogue.

That split, in June, was a watershed moment in the vast decentralization of Al Qaeda and its ideology since 9/11. As the power of the central leadership created by Osama bin Laden has declined, the vanguard of violent jihad has been taken up by an array of groups in a dozen countries across Africa and the Middle East, attacking Western interests in Algeria and Libya, training bombers in Yemen, seizing territory in Syria and Iraq, and gunning down shoppers in Kenya.

What links these groups, experts say, is no longer a centralized organization but a loose ideology that any group can appropriate and apply as it sees fit while gaining the mystique of a recognized brand name. In short, Al Qaeda today is less a corporation than a vision driving a diverse spread of militant groups.

“Al Qaeda is kind of a ready-made kit now,” said William McCants, a scholar of militant Islam at the Brookings Institution. “It is a portable ideology that is entirely fleshed out, with its own symbols and ways of mobilizing people and money to the cause. In many ways, you don’t have to join the actual organization anymore to get those benefits.”

For policy makers and terrorism analysts, this has made it harder to define what it means to be “Al Qaeda” and to gauge and combat threats. In addition, disagreements over definitions of Al Qaeda have animated debates in Washington about the perpetrators of the 2012 attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, especially over the Benghazi militant group Ansar al-Shariah. Although intelligence agencies and the State Department do not consider the group an affiliate of Al Qaeda, some Republican critics of President Obama argue that its puritanical, anti-Western vision makes it one.”

The US has made it tough for Al Qaeda Central command to function effectively after Osama Bin Laden’s Death.

Armed with Data from Osama’s hardD rive, the Al Qaeda Cells have been immobilized.

To operate effectively, a minimum autonomy was needed.

When that was granted, the Franchisees began to assert themselves.

This causes even more serious concern as it would be difficult to identify the Groups which operate under Al Qaeda and becomes very tough in handling Terrorist threats.

Human Body Parts Fall From Sky Jeddah

In Interesting and funny on January 7, 2014 at 12:51

Literally it rained  Human Body parts in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

It is presumed to have been the body parts of some one who was trapped in an Airliner which made an emergency landing.

“Human body parts fell from the sky in the Saudi city of Jeddah on Sunday, with police saying they could be the remains of someone trapped in an aircraft’s undercarriage bay.

“Police received a telephone call at 2:30 am from a witness reporting the fall of human remains at an intersection in Mushrefa neighbourhood” in the Red Sea city, spokesman Nawaf bin Naser al-Bouq said in a statement.

Initial indications were that the remains “fell from a plane’s landing gear,” said Bouq, adding that investigations were ongoing.

The report came after a Saudi Arabian Airlines jet made an emergency landing in the city of Medina in the west of the kingdom, injuring 29 people on Sunday.

That aircraft had been travelling from Iran‘s second city of Mashhad with 315 people on board.

A spokesman for the General Authority of Civil Aviation said there was no connection between the emergency landing in Medina and the Jeddah incident.

In a desperate attempt to cross borders, some people at poorly monitored airports climb inside the bays housing aircraft landing gear.

Most of them freeze to death once the aircraft reach cruising altitude, but some survive.”

Islam To Be The Major Religion Of The World

In Islam on December 31, 2013 at 17:59

Two Religions are notorious for religious Conversion.

Islamic Countries.

Muslim Countries Of The World

Their belief is that greater the number  followers, greater the Religion!

Christianity started it, Islam took it up.

While Christians entice people to become Christians Islam uses the Sword.

When the interests of these two religions clash, the result is Chaos.

The Middle East witnessed it during the Crusades.

Now this is being witnessed  in the world, with Al Qaeda targeting the Christians.

Christian nations are reacting.

Unfortunately , others who are not concerned with this affair.

Islam seems determined to overtake Christianity in Population.

With their Religion asking them to increase population, Islam will overtake Christianity.

Whether it is going to be fundamental Islam or moderate Islam(which I doubt), one has to wait.

Here is a report.

“The number of Muslims in Europe has grown from 29.6 million in 1990 to 44.1 million in 2010.34 Europe’s Muslim population is projected to exceed 58 million by 2030. Muslims today account for about 6% of Europe’s total population, up from 4.1% in 1990. By 2030, Muslims are expected to make up 8% of Europe’s population. Although Europe’s Muslim population is growing, Europe’s share of the global Muslim population will remain quite small. Less than 3% of the world’s Muslims are expected to be living in Europe in 2030, about the same portion as in 2010 (2.7%).”

“Islam religion and hence Muslim population began around 640 AD and now there are 1,300,000,000 Muslims in this world.  This is a historical growth rate of 1.51% per year.  The world population now is 6,137,000,000 and the current growth rate of the world population is 1.30% per year (Source: PRB 2001 World Population Data Sheet).  At these growth rates, mathematically, it will take 410 years for Muslim population to be 50% of the world population.

Shoot The Fetus In Womb Get Cigarette.

In crime, Middle east, videos on October 19, 2013 at 08:51

The war in Syria is getting nastier beyond imagination.

Killing in Syria.

Horrifying: The x-ray image shows a full-term foetus with a bullet lodged in its brain, shot dead in its mother’s womb Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2466574/War-Syria-Snipers-target-unborn-children-chilling-competition-win-cigarettes.html#ixzz2i8NKAUAc Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook

Snipers are paid to shoot the Fetus in the Womb not to speak of infants being shot.

 

And the Reward?

A Cigarette!

To what depths of depravity can a Human Mind sink?

 

Story:

 

The unborn children of Syrian women are the targets of a sickening war game where a shooter who murders a foetus in its mother’s womb is awarded with cigarettes, a British surgeon has revealed.

Dr David Nott witnessed evidence of fighters using civilians as target practice and on several occasions shooting pregnant women in the stomach, killing their unborn babies.

Dr Nott, recently returned from volunteering at a Syrian hospital, said there are local rumours the snipers are sell swords, working for the Assad regime, awarded when they ‘hit the correct targets’.

 

As women and children cross through the unnamed city where he was stationed, they would be shot by snipers – and their wounds followed disturbing patterns,

‘From the first patients that came in in the morning, you could almost tell what you would see for the rest of the day. It was a game,’ he told The Times.

War surgeon: Dr David Nott, pictured in 2008, treated civilian victims in Syria

 

‘One day it would be shots to the groin. The next, it would only be the left chest. The day after, we would see no chest wounds; they were all neck [wounds].’

Dr Nott told the newspaper that in his 20 years volunteering in war zones, this is the first time he had witnessed pregnant women being targeted.

He described the day two consecutive patients arrived at his clinic, heavily pregnant with their babies shot to death in their stomachs.

‘The women were all shot through the uterus, so that must have been where they were aiming for. I can’t even begin to tell you how awful it was.

‘Usually, civilians are caught in the crossfire. This is the first time I’ve ever seen anything like this. This was deliberate. It was hell beyond hell.’

Dr Nott, who counts Tony Blair among his former patients, has returned to London after five weeks in Syria to reveal abysmal conditions in the local hospitals with little to no evidence of aid.

The civil war in Syria show no evidence of slowing down today as government air force jets bombarded the eastern city of Deir al-Zor on Friday.

Heavy overnight clashes saw the killing of dozens of rebels and pro-Assad forces, including one of the president’s top military intelligence officers, activists said.

Syria’s civil war has killed more than 100,000 people and divided the Middle East between Sunni Gulf states and Turkey which mostly support the rebels, and Shi’ite Iran and Hezbollah which have backed Assad.

International efforts are growing to convene peace talks in Geneva next month, encouraged by rare agreement among global powers over the elimination of Syria’s chemical weapons after sarin gas attacks near Damascus in August.

But the United States and Russia, responding to Syria’s announcement that the talks would go ahead in Geneva on Nov. 23-24, said on Thursday that no date had yet been set.

The international envoy for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, is due to hold talks in the Middle East next week to try to prepare for the negotiations, his spokeswoman said.

Coconut Arrested Disturbing Elections

In Interesting and funny on September 7, 2013 at 08:30

Coconut arrested in Maldives.

A coconut sits on the beach in this undated Getty file photo. Authorities in the Maldives recently arrested a coconut on suspicion of it having tampered with the presidential election there.

There have been instances of bizarre law Enforcement.

We had a Goat being arrested for escaping the Police  turning a Goat from being Man ,a Bird arrested in the Middle East on charges of spying, Summons issued to Lord Rama in India on the Babar Masjid case.

Now add this to your collection.

Police in the Maldives have detained a young, husky and possibly cursed suspect for potentially rigging the vote in a critical election. So far, a police interrogation has revealed only one thing: The suspect is a hard nut to crack.

That’s because the perp is a coconut.

Minivan News, a Maldives newspaper, reports a young coconut was taken into custody Tuesday after police received reports that the suspicious fruit was loitering near the Guraidhoo Island School, a polling station to be used in the Sept. 7 presidential election.

Islanders fear the coconut may have been associated with black magic or been imbued with a spell to influence the election.

“The four-inch coconut had a ‘Sura‘ [Quranic verse] written in Arabic and was lying on the ground near the school, easy for the public to see,” a source with knowledge of the incident told Minivan News. Authorities brought in a “ruqyah,” or benevolent magician, who determined the coconut was fake and therefore posed no threat.

Black magic and sorcery are often accused of having undue influence on the island nation. In July, school administrators refused to let elections officials place a ballot box in the building, fearing it would attract black magic and make students ill. CNM News reports that the school assented only after the government agreed to be responsible for anyone who was “struck by a spell or [fell] ill.”
