Al Qaeda Terrorist Planned Biological Attacks in Israel and Jordan

A biological attack on Israel as far back as three years ago was a lot closer than anyone had imagined. Authorities revealed Sunday the Al Qaeda organizer of a plot has been in custody for three years.

Israel  has been holding for three years an Al Qaeda terrorist, once arrested by Americans a decade ago, after he tried to infiltrate into Israel to train Palestinian Authority terrorists to stage a biological attack, it was revealed on Sunday.

The terrorist was identified as 39-year-old Samer Abed al-Barak, who had been arrested by American authorities and jailed in Guantanamo Bay in 2003. He was released three months later to Jordan, where he was a free man but later was arrested for terrorist activities. Jordan let him go in 2008 and apparently tipped off Israel that he would try to cross into Israel, according to documents filed in court by the Justice Ministry in response to a petition to free him.

Authorities said Al Barak had studied microbiology in Pakistan and tried to enter Israel via the Allenby Bridge in 2010 to put his knowledge to good jihad use and train Palestinian Authority terrorists to manufacture poisons for a biological attack in Israel.

Al-Barak also was planning a similar attack on Jewish tourists in Jordan.

His administration detention is to expire in several days but can be renewed once more, and the Justice Ministry told the court that releasing him would produce an immediate and serious threat to Israel. It is not known why he has not been charged and placed on trial.

His lawyer said he was engaged in Pakistan in “humanitarian activities,: which is a nifty Al Qaeda code word for “killing Jews.”

Government officials confirmed the detention after it was published in the media.

The government’s defense in court said that al-Barak is from Kuwait and moved with his family to Jordan and then to Kalkilya, in Samaria, before landing up Pakistan in 1995, where he obtained a masters’ degree that gave him his background for producing biological weapons. Al Barak moved on to Afghanistan to engage in military training.

He joined Al Qaeda in 2001 after being recruited by the terrorist organization’s current leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri.

    Doesn’t surprise me.

  2. Doesn't surprise me either, I have also discovered today Palestinians are causing huge problems in Malmo Sweden attacking these liberal nations from inside to enforce consequences on Israel via UN. Several Jewish families in both Sweden and Norway have been targeted by Muslims largely from so called Palestine. Since the Oslo directive during Arafat's watch many Jews have left Scandinavia. These Muslims come largel from Lebanon Jordan the West Bank and Gaza. This Al Qaeda terrorist is an extension of all this, he needs to be confined permenantly.

    YOU should NOT print this kind of stuff….now the the USA knows the USA will INSIST he be among the next murders released from Israeli prisons to REWARD and encourage ABBAS from meeting with Israel to discuss the dismantling and destruction and death of Israel….Abbas has so generously agreed to discuss the giving away of most of Israel to the Arab Palestinians so they can be right next to Israeli cities and when the Iranians send troops into the new ARAB country they can more easily kill Jews and detroy Israel….even bringing in the new Iranian nuclear bombs right into the new ARAB ISRAEL. How convenient for the Palestians…yes a million palestians might die too but so what….its like a suicide bomber but just on a grand scale…and look what Israel gets in return…they get the right for Mashiach to come sooner when Israel is destroyed and all the Jews are dead. How lucky can you get. Yes, we are FOOLS! We could rule the entire area and be respected and feared…instead we choose to be stupid dumb fools.

    about ten years ago my wife and I watched 60 minutes show a doctor whose hobby was examining plants that grew in his garden especially and odd one that just sort of popped up one day from nowhere….he found extracts of it killed bacteria,viruses, and CANCER CELLS….so when an infant was diagnosed with childhood leukemia and the mother told to plan for the funeral…the doc told her…lady your baby is dead…so can I experiment and give her some stuff I have been playing with for years…I would like to see if it can help her…the mother said go ahead…next thing you see is a pretty teenaged girl come out and she is that baby…she is cured and alive! a nontoxic cure…he cured another 100 kids…then the FDA heard about him and took his drug away and declared the CURSE WORD "PROTOCOL" on his drug….a child may be cured by his drug PROVIDING and ONLY IF that child has had two bone marrow transplants and at least one chemo series completed (such as cisplatin) and if the child is STILL ALIVE and IF the mother knows to request the nontoxic cure…then the child may finally be cured….but the child may NEVER receive the nontoxic cure first because that would mean the expensive and profitable bone marrow transplants would NEVER get to be done! (cause all the children would be rapidly and nontoxically cured). I do not remember the name of the doctor of the drug….and no one will tell me…I even contacted ST JUDE and they ignored me (NO REPLY).

    I did read about a cure for lou gerigs disease and know the rabbi (was in coma paralyzed, blind, deaf, unable to talk)who was cured nontoxically and now jogs walks runs lectures and enjoys life since being completely CURED …oh the drug is UNDER STUDY….means they won't use it and it will sit on shelves until it over the decades it becomes completely forgotten…already few know it exists and everyone I talk to does not know there is a cure for Lou Gerig disease and also related diseases such as MG and maybe lupis etc etc.

    ask me and I will tell you who what where it is…..but you have to FIGHT HARD to get the cure! its under study not under use!!!

  5. what is it and where do you get it?
