Assad Warns US and Israel to Expect Chemical Attack (Video)

Monday, September 9th, 2013

Syrian President Bassar al-Assad told interviewer Charlie Rose that the United States, Israel and other American allies can expect to be hit with chemical weapons if President Barack Obama carries out his threat to attack.

Assad, who has denied that his regime used chemical weapons despite widespread evidence to the contrary, implied that Iran and Hezbollah or rebels could use chemical weapons to repel a military strike.

“It could happen…if the rebels or the terrorists in this region or any other group have” chemical weapons, he explained.

The United States “should expect everything, not necessarily from the government,” if the United States attacks, he said. Assad added that Syria is “not the only player in the region” and that “you have different parties, you have different factions, you have different ideology.”

It would only take one or two deranged Al Qaeda terrorists, and not necessarily Assad’s soldiers, to use an American attack as an excuse to try to be the Great Arab hero who tried to destroy Israel with a “dirty bomb” or poison gas.

However, based on Assad’s previous actions and statements during the civil war, he used the interview to prepare the groundwork to use chemical weapons and blame others for it.

Rose is one of the few journalists allowed into the country and to meet Assad, dispelling rumors that he is hiding underground. Rose described Assad as “remarkably calm.”

As for the chemical attack on Syrian civilians last month, Assadcontinued to maintain a “What, me?” attitude in the interview, which will be aired in full on Rose’s PBS show Monday evening after excerpts were viewed Monday morning on CBS.

“Our soldiers, in another area, were attacked chemically,” Assad maintained. “But in the area where they say the government used chemical weapons, we only have video, pictures and allegations. We were not there, our forces, our police, our institutions, don’t exist.

“How can you talk about what happened if you don’t have evidence?”

While Assad was warning of a chemical attack, an Israeli official who has been briefed by Washington told Reuters that the Obama administration would give Israel only “hours” notice before attacking Syria.

That could mean two hours or 10 years. In either case, that is enough to rev up the F-16 engines but not enough to mobile troops.

Former Defense Ministry top honcho Amos Gilad, who has sounded suspiciously dovish and often has been dead wrong since leaving office, said in a speech at a counterterrorism center that Israel is totally out of the picture concerning if and when President Obama orders an attack.

There also is the possibility that the unidentified Israeli official who spoke with Reuters simply is lying and that the United States and Israel are cooperating closely towards a military strike.

If the Obama administration were not to give Israel enough notice to prepare for an attack, then Washington would have to take on the job of answering a lot of questions if Israeli civilians end up being killed.

It also is no secret that the American government relies heavily on Israel for intelligence information in the Middle East in general and in Syria specifically. Israel, and not the United States, has the human resources to plant dark-skinned Arabic-speaking agents in Syria.

Regardless of whether Israel will have no notice or plenty of notice before an American attack, President Obama already has given the world a least a couple of weeks to prepare for it.

The results have been panic. Russia has sent warships to the region and has threatened that Obama is laying with fire that will erupt into a regional war, or not a world war. Israel has deployed a battery of the anti-missile Iron Dome system around Jerusalem, and Turkey has placed anti-aircraft batteries along its southern border with Syria.

The rhetoric is great for headlines, and no one will say that Syria will throw out the welcome mat for an American attack.

But so far, Obama has one powerful diplomatic weapon on his side: Russia and Syria bear the burden to prove that the Assad regime did not deploy chemical weapons. No one believes Assad’s’ denials accept, perhaps, his properly British educated wife.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has given Assad the “exit option” of turning over chemical weapons in a week to the international community in return for President Obama’s pushing the “stop” button.

Obama Might Memorialize 9/11 with Attack on Syria

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

The timing of President Barack Obama’s blitz to convince Congress to back a military strike on the Assad regime points to next Wednesday, September 11 and the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States, as a possible date to strike.

Exploiting the 9/11 date would arouse emotions, patriotism and the ever-present  dream of returning America as the feared and fearless leader of the Free World.

Testimony by the Secretaries of Defense and State before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday left no doubt that the President has crossed the point of no return.

Whether one is for or against an American military strike, and whether or not President Obama has appeared to be an uncertain and weak leader , his brilliant oratory and management by control, like him or not, could turn popular opinion in his favor.

All polls show that America does not want to get involved in another war, especially one that is being fought by a madman against an assortment of equally deranged murderers who have made the world forget what the Arab Spring rebellion in Syria was all about more than two years ago.

The Al Qaeda attacks on Sept, 11, 2001, turned it into the blackest day in American history, a day when a group of terrorists used simple pen knives to bring might America to its knees.

Ever since, the United States has appeared to be a weakling, its shining armor forever pierced and rusted, its economy mired with grossly high underemployment, and its position as a world power mocked by the radiclal Islam movement, on which Russia has hitched a ride to lord it over America and bring back the Cold War of the 1950s.

Obama, right or wrong, has the opportunity to regain the stage for America to show the world that the sun has not yet sets on its role as the leader of the Free World and the supposed guardian of mankind.

One can imagine Obama speaking on Sept. 10: “My fellow countrymen, I know we are tired of wars. We don’t want war. We will not get into a war with Syria but instead will prevent war. If we don’t reduce Assad’s regime to ashes, the world – and God – will never forgive us for not having saved humanity from the unchallenged use of horrible chemical weapons as Assad’s forces have done in the past several weeks.

“Twelve years ago tomorrow, terrorists tried to destroy out great country. We did not surrender. We mourned our dead and pulled ourselves up by the bootstraps.

“I later ordered the elimination of  Al Qaeda leader Bin Laden and proved that we are defeating terrorism.”

For his clincher, Obama can declare, ”There is no better way to memorialize the nearly 3,000 loyal Americans who were killed in the 9/11 attacks than to strike back at the heart of terror. That is why I have asked Congress to support a military strike on the Assad terrorist regime.

“I know that that there are other equally animal-like terrorists who might take Assad’s place, but an American military strike will show them that they will meet the same fate if they carry out war crimes.

“9/11 is next Wednesday, the day we can turn into one that will be remembered – not for terror’s attack on America but rather for America’s victory over terrorism.”

And may God protect all of us, especially Israel.

Abbas Rakes Obama over the Coals for Plan to Attack Syria

Monday, September 2nd, 2013

The Palestinian Authority has a unique way of spitting in the face of those who feed it. Abbas says Obama should stay out of Syria; PA media blame Obama for the civil war. “The US also was behind 9/11.”

“We don’t accept for any Arabic country to be attacked and we condemn the use of chemical weapons by any group. The solution to the Syrian crisis must be political and there is no military solution,” Abbas said in speech to Fatah’s revolutionary council this weekend.

The closer Abbas succeeds to win all of his demands and conditions for creating the Palestinian Authority as an independent country, the more he betrays those who have kept in power, mainly the Obama administration.

Abbas has performed brilliantly to drum up worldwide support for his demands by building on nearly universal anti-Israel propaganda.

But one would think he has enough sense to keep his mouth shut and not pretend he is the president of Russia or China when the President of the United States says he wants to put a stop the war crimes in Syria. Abbas even said that his officials have drafted a paper to international bodies on how to end the civil war in Syria.

It does not take much imagination to figure that the first thing is for Israel to surrender the strategic Golan Heights.

Fortunately for Israel, Abbas does not have much commons sense when it comes to issue outside of his single-minded goal of creating a PA state inside Israel’s current borders.

And Palestinian Authority media have followed up with anti-American vile that is on par with that of the propaganda machine in Syria and Iran.

While Abbas was saying, in Arabic of course,  “We are against the attack on Syria and this is our position and policy, the Palestinian Media Watch was busy translating and posting reports  in PA media on Sunday, including its official newspaper.

Some choice headlines are:

  • US behind civil war in Syria and supports the killings
  • US seeks massacre of Syrian civilians
  • America uses “killing as a strategy to attain global domination”
  • “Assad was destroying Syria, and this is what they [US] had hoped for”
  • America attempting to divide and destroy Syria, as it destroyed Iraq
  • US policy is to help radical Muslims take over the Arab World
  • PA daily op-ed: America was behind the 9/11 attacks

Perhaps the most insulting statement was that of a PA legislator who had the gall to state, “Peace talks are intended to hide Israel’s involvement in attack on Syria.”

What is even more amazing is that the  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and President Obama act out the “battered wife syndrome.” The more Abbas sticks his finger in America’s eye, the more Washington sees exactly what Abbas wants it to see.

One PA daily pronounced, according to PMW,  “Events of mass killings do not upset [America] because they themselves have used killing as a means and a strategy to attain global domination”

“The Americans knew that Assad was destroying Syria and this is what they had hoped for, so they worked to have the massacres and destruction continue,” stated another article.

Another article blames the United States and Israel for carrying out a policy “to re-divide the Arab people’s nations according to ethnic groups, religion and ethnicity.”

One Palestinian Authority daily, less than two weeks before the 12th anniversary of the Al Qaeda attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, ran an article that is a copycat of the one of the most vicious anti-American theories around.

“‘History is a great lie written by the victors’ – said Napoleon Bonaparte,” wrote columnist Hassan Ouda Abu Zaher.

“If so, is the history planted in us through TV and the standard educational curriculum indeed true? The source of this history is the West – the victor ever since the fall of Andalusia (Muslim Spain) …Our history is replete with lies, from lies about the corrupt [Caliph] Harun Al-Rashid,…to the lie about Al-Qaeda and the Sept. 11 events, which asserted that Muslim terrorists committed it, and that it was not an internal American action by the Freemasons, which was mentioned in the Illuminati game cards ten years before it took place, and in over 15 Zionist and Freemason Hollywood-produced films in the 1990s.”

Jewish Institutions Awarded $9 million in Federal Security Grants

Monday, September 2nd, 2013

Approximately 90 percent of the $10 million in funding for non-profit organizations announced by the Department of Homeland Security to help nonprofit organizations protect themselves from terrorism went to Jewish institutions this year.

The total amount of grants, announced Aug. 29, is slightly up from last year’s $9.7 million, while the total Preparedness Grant Program budget for this year amounts to $968 million.

“The Department of Homeland Security has demonstrated a great commitment to protecting at-risk communities,” said Michael Siegal, chair of the Jewish Federations of North America’s board of trustees.

The Jewish Federations of North America and the Orthodox Union were instrumental in making sure the Homeland Security’s Nonprofit Security Grant program was continued.

Since Congress established the program in 2005, a total of $138 million has been distributed across the country to help at-risk nonprofits acquire and install physical security enhancements and undertake preparedness training, the JFNA announced.

“Since September 11, nonprofits generally, and Jewish communal institutions specifically, have been the victim of an alarming number of threats and attacks,” said William C. Daroff, vice president for public policy and director of the Washington office of Jewish Federations.

Muslim Brotherhood Digging Roots in Boston

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

Good American Muslim citizens in Boston have been shocked to find material in local mosques backed by the Muslim Brotherhood movement and calling for jihad against the United States.

Boston has been eyeballed by anti-jihad monitors since the Boston Massacre in April, carried out by Islamic terrorists Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. They were not known to be part of the Muslim Brotherhood, but they attended mosques that preach radical Islam.

“The fact is that these fellows attended, blocks from their house, a radical mosque that has been the center of controversy in Boston for 10 years,” according to CBN (Christian Broadcast Network), quoting  Charles Jacobs, who heads Americans for Peace and Tolerance. The organization monitors local Islamic radicals.

Referring to the Islamic Society of Boston mosque in Cambridge, Jacobs said, “The founder of that mosque, blocks from where the Tsarnaevs lived and where they prayed, was Abdulrahman Alamoudi.. He is the model of deception in American-Muslim history…

“He…convinced President Clinton and also President George W. Bush that he was precisely the kind of moderate Muslim leader that America was looking for,” Jacobs said. “In fact, he deceived everyone. He’s now in jail for 23 years for giving money, for funding al Qaeda.

Other worshippers at the Cambridge mosque have included an al Qaeda member convicted of plotting attacks on New York City and a man sentenced to 17 years in prison for planning a shooting spree on a Boston-area shopping mall.

One former trustee of the mosque is Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader and terrorist supporter who’s banned from entering the United States.

The explosive material found in the mosque is not new.

One moderate Muslim leader who visited the mosque 10 years ago told CBN. “We go upstairs and I find the library and it’s full of flyers, full of newsletters in Arabic,” Dr. Ahmed Mansour of the International Quranic Institute said. “And they call for jihad against America and against the Jews and against the Christians.”

The Muslim Brotherhood in the United States hides under the name Muslim American Society (MAS), which the Muslim Brotherhood founded in 1993. and which federal prosecutors have called “the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.”

MAS opened up another mosque four years the Boston neighborhood of Roxbury and goes by the lovely-sounding name of the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center.

It cost $15,5 million to build. Getting money was no problem. More than half of it reportedly came from Saudi Arabia, the country whose terrorists pulled off the 9/11 terrorist attack.

Both mosques are run by the same leadership and have the same ideology, according to Jacobs.

Massachusetts politicians endorsed the Roxbury mosque although two months earlier, the mosque’s cleric incited Muslims who had been arrested for terrorism.

“Grab onto the typewriter, grab onto the shovel, grab onto the gun and the sword,” Imam Abdullah Farooq told his listeners.

The current imam of the mosque was supposed to attend an event in memory of the victims of the Boston Marathon terror attack, but the governor, the same man who endorsed the Roxbury mosque in 2009, told him he could stay home. The imam, William Suhaib Webb, has been called by many to be a moderate Muslim leader.

But many in his mosque are not happy with his moderation.

When Webb spoke favorably about President Barack Obama, Muslims complained on line, charging the Obama is a “war criminal.”

Webb also said he could nit publicly pray over the body of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon terrorist who was killed in a shootout. Tweet responses scolded him..

However, the situation in Boston and other American cities is approaching that of most European countries where radical Muslims have gained a foothold in their communities to the point that leaders are charged with racism if they oppose them.

“If you question them, even if you question them, you’re a racist, Islamophobic bigot,” Jacobs said.

Mounting Evidence that Boston Bombers Involved in Triple Homicide

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Mounting evidence indicates that the Boston Marathon bombers were involved in the unsolved murder of three men, two of them Jewish, in a suburb of Boston on September 11, 2011.

Police officials have said that some crime scene forensic evidence was a match to Tamerlane Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the two brothers who are alleged to have set off two explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon last month, ABC News reported over the weekend. The officials also said records of cell phones used by the brothers put them in the area of the murders on that date.

Three men — Brendan Mess, Rafael Teken and Erik Weissman — were found dead in September 2011 in an apartment several miles from the campus of Brandeis University in the Boston suburb of Waltham.

Jewish Press correspondent Lori Lowenthal Marcus reported two weeks ago, “Despite efforts of officials and the mainstream media to avoid any linkage between the bombings…and a violence emanating from a particular form of radicalized Islam, everyone has now been forced to acknowledge that connection.”

Tamerlane Tsarnaev knew Mess well but did not attend his funeral despite once referring to him as his “best friend,” and participating in boxing and martial arts training together.

The bodies of the three men were discovered with their throats slit and about seven pounds of marijuana dumped on the bodies, as well as $5,000 in cash left behind.

Weissman and Teken were Jewish.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police several days after the Boston bombing. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was arrested after a shoot-out n which he was seriously wounded, and he was charged with using a “weapon of mass destruction, a charge that could bring the death penalty.

The brothers were identified as suspects after authorities reviewed photos and video taken on the afternoon of the marathon on April 15, when two bombs killed three people and wounded more than 170.

Police Remove 9/11 Wing from Mosque Site; No Human Remains Found

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

New York City police Wednesday removed a 255-pound part of a wing of as Boeing jet, one of the two planes Al Qaeda-linked terrorists hijacked on September 11, 2001 and flew into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in the most disastrous terrorist attack in the world.

The wing was wedged behind a building at the Park Place site where a high-rise mosque and Muslim community center is to be built. The reminder of the horrendous attack was discovered only last Friday by surveyors, but officials have determined that were no human remains at the site.

It still is mystery of how the huge part could have remained undetected for more than 11 years.

The five-foot part of the wing, originally thought to have been the plane’s landing gear, was removed with a pulley system

“It’s a piece of history and we tried to preserve it as best we could,” said Deputy Chief William Aubry of the Forensic Investigation Division.

“It’s a pretty eerie feeling knowing that we’re here 11 years later removing the part,” Aubry said. “I think we all feel a sense of emotion.”

The wing was brought to a police facility was duly recorded and taken into storage.

No one has decided what to do with the remnant.

Perhaps it will be placed in a 9/11 museum.

Or maybe it will be displayed in a public square.

Then again, perhaps the Islamic Culture Center could exhibit it at the entrance to the grand mosque that is to be built.

It would serve as a reminder,  however one wants to be reminded.

That could be for better.

And it could be for worse.
