Terror Group Vows To

Avenge Bin Laden’s Death
 
   The leader of the group that represents Al Qaeda ideologyin the Gaza Strip warned in an interviewof “big revenge” against the U.S. and Israel for the killing of Osama bin Laden.
 

   Speaking from the Gaza Strip, Abu Saqer of Jihadiya Salafiya told this reporter that Al Qaeda groups worldwide “made a connection” to initiate what he called “big revenge.”

   “It will come very soon,” he claimed.
 
   Abu Saqer did not say how the purported “connection” between Al Qaeda groups was made.
 
   The Muslim leader said the immediatetarget for Al Qaeda now was Americans, but he also threatened revenge attacks against Israelis and Westerners.
 
   “All parts of the world where Americans and Zionists and Crusaders are located, these are all available for attacks,” he said.
 
   Abu Saqer’s group is widely suspected to have been behind the kidnapping and murder last month of Italian activist Vittorio Arrigoni in the Gaza Strip, leading to a major crackdown by Hamas on the Al Qaeda-linked group.
 
   While both Hamas and Al Qaeda are offshoots of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, the two groups often clash over tactics. The two groups have engaged in deadly firefights the past two years.
 
   Abu Saqer told this column that Hamas has already taken steps to prevent his group from attempting revenge attacks for the U.S. operation that killed bin Laden. He said Hamas believes such attacks from Gaza would embarrass the territory’s rulers.
 

   He said his group received a warning that Hamas would not tolerate any attacks on Westerners from Gaza.

 

Hamas Doesn’t Appreciate Pointed Questions
 
   Hamas’s senior leader in the Gaza Strip chided this reporter for asking whether his Islamist group will accept the existence of Israel.
 
   “This imaginary question will not be answered, and if you are going to continue imaginary questions, please make an end,” stated Mahmoud al-Zahar of Hamas.
 
   Zahar was speaking Sunday on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s WABC 770 AM.
 
   The question that provoked this snippy reaction was whether Hamas will accept the right of Israel to exist as part of a unity deal between Hamas and the U.S.-backed Fatah party of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
 

   While calling Israel “aggressive,” Zahar lobbed more accusations at this reporter’s line of questioning: “Your media is provoking a question against us as if all the international community are accepting each other, including the Israelis.”

 

Did Obama Allude To The Operation

Against Bin Laden Last Week?
 
   Did President Obama allude to the targeting of Osama bin Laden in remarks he made last week regarding the release of his long-form birth certificate?
 
   Last Wednesday, the White House posted online a copy of Obama’s long-form birth certificate from the state of Hawaii.
 
   Speaking to the news media about the release, Obama complained, “We do not have time for this kind of silliness.”
 
   He continued: “We’ve got better stuff to do. I’ve got better stuff to do. We’ve got big problems to solve. And I’m confident we can solve them, but we’re going to have to focus on them – not on this.”
 
   Many believed Obama apparently was referring to the economy and skyrocketing oil prices dominating the nation’s political discourse.
 
   However, a timeline presented by the media today makes clear that when Obama spoke last week, he was leading secret meetings regarding the location of, and operation against, bin Laden.
 

   The president spoke just two days before authorizing the raid that resulted in the terror chieftain’s death on Sunday.

 

Liberal Group Asks Advertisers

To Boycott Trump’s ‘The Apprentice’
 
   A liberal activist group funded by philanthropist George Soros has reached out to some advertisers of Donald Trump’s hit television show, “The Apprentice,” claiming Trump is engaged in “malicious attacks on our president.”
 
   On its Twitter feed earlier this week,the Think Progress blog sent public messages to multiple companies that advertise on “The Apprentice.” The blog asked each company, “Are you going to continue to sponsor The Apprentice and support Donald Trump + his malicious attacks on our president?”
 
   The blog said the Groupon web company told them it will stop advertisingon “The Apprentice.”
 
   Julie Mossler, a spokesperson for Groupon, told this column her company never advertised on “The Apprentice” television show. She said the company has placed ads on a rolling basis on the websites of television networks, including NBC. She said Groupon specifically requested this week that no ad be placed on “The Apprentice” homepage.
 
   Think Progress is a project of the Soros-funded American Progress Action Fund, which was founded by and is regarded as a “sister advocacy organization” of the Center for American Progress.
 
   The Center for American Progress established the Fund to transform “progressive ideas into policy through rapid response communications, legislative action, grassroots organizing and advocacy.”
 
   The Center is run by John Podesta, a former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton who was co-chairman of President Obama’s 2008 White House transition team.
 
   Podesta and the Center have had a heavy influence on the crafting of White House policy.
 
   A Time magazine article profileing the influence of Podesta’s Center for American Progress in the formation of the Obama administration, stated that “not since the Heritage Foundation helped guide Ronald Reagan’s transition in 1981 has a single outside group held so much sway.”
 

   The Center for American Progress reportedly was founded in 2003 with seed money from Soros, who also donated $3 million to the group’s sister, the Project Action Fund.
