9/11 Spreads in the Middle East

Al Qaeda brought down the Twin Towers 12 years ago. With the help of other terrorists, it is bringing down Mideast regimes, banking on chaos to spread its policy of destruction of the West.

Al Qaeda has come a long way since 9/11. Suicide bombers killed at least 11 Egyptian soldiers and civilians at Gaza Wednesday in a regional campaign to spread its global war

Al Qaeda was alive and well in the Middle East Wednesday, the 12th  anniversary of the terrorist web’s attacks on the United States.

Two of Al Qaeda-linked terrorists are not so alive and well, but they had the joy of knowing they will be welcomed by 72 virgins for having killed at least 11 Egyptian soldiers and civilians in a double suicide bombing attack at Rafiah, the divided city that straddles the border between Egypt and Gaza.

Bin Laden is long and gone, but he left behind thousands of monsters who are united by a hatred of the West and a burning desire to inflict radical Islam rule on the world.

Al Qaeda is not a monolithic group, but its ideology inspired what are commonly known as “Al Qaeda-linked groups.”

Marc Sagemen, a former CIA officer and now a psychiatrist and counter terrorism consultant, has pointed out, “We like to create a mythical entity called [al-Qaeda] in our minds, but that is not the reality we are dealing with.” He described the terrorist organization as a “loose label for a movement that seems to target the West.”

Al Qaeda and copy-cat groups operate in dozens of countries and in the past three years have helped turn the Middle East into fertile ground to establish a base of power to spread hate and death in the West.

Libya, Tunisia, Yemen, Egypt and Syria are in danger of extinction as countries. President Shimon Peres noted Wednesday that if Syrian President Bassar al-Assad does not play ball and come clean with its stockpile of chemical weapons, it will continue to dissolve into “ a number of countries.”

The Russian RT news agency reported on Wednesday a disgusting example of what goes though the demented minds of Al Qaeda terrorists.

Raouchan Gazakov brought his family to Syria, taught his 5-year-old son to make bombs and bade farewell to his relative, a suicide bomber,” he told RT’s Maria Finoshina in a Damascus prison, where he explained why he came to fight for Al-Qaeda.

“A group called Murad approached me a year ago and convinced me that Muslims in Syria are being oppressed and killed, and that I should go and take up arms against Assad for world jihad.” Raouchan sneaked into Syria last January through Turkey, from where he was accompanied by two men saying they were from Al Qaeda. Once in Syria, he joined an Egyptian-run jihadist group.

Another terrorist in a Syrian prison, Amer El Khadoud, related that he left a normal family life in France to join the Syrian jihad with an Al-Qaeda affiliated group.

The Washington think tank Bipartisan Policy Center recently concluded, “The civil war in Syria may provide Al-Qaeda with an opportunity to regroup, train and plan operations. Foreign fighters hardened in that conflict could eventually destabilize the region or band together to plot attacks against the West.”

Congress heard the same message Tuesday.

“Al Qaeda and its allies dominate a large portion of northern Syria and play a key role in fighting throughout the rest of the country,” Thomas Joscelyn, an analyst with the Washington-based Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told the House Homeland Security Committee.

His scary appraisal contradicted that of  John Kerry, U.S. Secretary of State and Wishful Thinking. He said Al Qaeda does not play a major role in Syria.

Thomas Joscelyn, an analyst with the Washington-based Foundation for Defense of Democracies, dumped that idea into the Foggy Bottom sea of illusions. He told the House committee on Tuesday, “These same al Qaeda-affiliated forces have fought alongside Free Syrian Army brigades. Al Qaeda has made the fight for Syria a strategic priority.”

Al Qaeda and similar groups have not forgotten 9/11.

“The Islamic Emirate of Libya,” a terrorist organization that may be an Al Qaeda affiliate first reported in 2011, warned on Tuesday that it will “celebrate” 9/11 with terrorist attacks on certain targets, such as the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

In Somalia, terrorists who work with Al Qaeda have staked out headquarters, according to the country’s Mareeg news website.

One of the terrorists is Taliban spiritual leader, Mullah Mohammad Omar, who gave bin Laden and Al Qaeda leaders’ shelter prior to 9/11.

And there is  Sirajuddin Haqqani, a warlord and leader of the Haqqani network that fights American forces in Afghanistan from his base in Pakistan and which hosts Al Qaeda terrorists. He is the leader of the Haqqani network and is a veteran of the Soviet war in Afghanistan.

That brings the entire Al Qaeda origins back to Square One, where it was none other than the American government that helped it get off the ground in the 1980s.

The United States was afraid that the Soviet Union was conducting a campaign to expand its power. To help the Afghan Muslims, including some of the most radical Islamists, the CIA conducted Operation Cyclone to funnel money for the anti-Soviet terrorists.

The smell of blood attracted other jihadists

A Muslim group was formed in Pakistan to help finance the war, It was headed by bin Laden and a Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood leader, Abdullah Yusuf Azzam.

Bin Laden used his Saudi connections with oil  sheikhs to turn the organization into a major terrorist operation.

The Muslim Maktab al-Khidamat (MAK) organization then set up operations in – three guesses – the United States  of America.

The American government later withdrew its support.

Bin Laden and Al Qaeda no longer needed them, and the rest is history –  a very dark history.

  1. The real problem is there are no good guys in the Syrian conflict. The sides are terrible.

    The “good guys” are the children who are being endangered and murdered by both sides. How about a kindertransport to get the children out of that war zone.

    Many of the World War II Kindertransport children were not formally adopted because their parents were still alive when they left. Very few had parents after the war, and sometimes reuniting parents and children after 1945 was problematic. Some children felt abandoned when, in fact, the parents were doing the only thing they could to save their children’s lives.

    I’m suggesting we get the children out of harm’s way until the civil war is over—if it ever is. Arab civil wars have a tendency to start, become furious, hibernate, and then start again.

    There is no certainty the Arab parents would even put their children on a kindertransport. Rabbi DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

    Obama remember 9/11/2001 and 9/11/2012 this is Al-Qaeda's jihad, now you make jihad in Syria with this terrorists organizations.

    Moslems that want to be civilized must walk away from Islam.

  4. Thank you for reminding everyone that the CIA created Al Qaeda….."and the rest is history.". Right. A history of False Flag events that continues to use the alCIAda like a true to form JFK assassin patsy.
