More Attacks To Come, Says Intelligence Official
Intelligence indicates there will most likely be more attempted terror attacks in the West in the coming weeks and that ISIS is focusing its current recruitment efforts on women, a knowledgeable Arab intelligence source told Breitbart Jerusalem.
Based on dozens of interrogations of jihadists in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, and North Africa, he said, “It remains beyond doubt that the Islamic State and also al Qaeda will try to carry out attacks during Ramadan in the United States and Europe, especially in the French cities where the European football championship is taking place.”
Dozens of phone calls between Syria and France have been intercepted over the past few weeks leading to dozens of arrests in France and Belgium, the source said.
However, he says, there may have been other messages that fell through the cracks, all the more so since ISIS has concentrated its efforts on recruiting “lone wolves” on social media.
Estimates of hundreds of terrorists-in-waiting on American soil are exaggerated, he added, “but we may certainly come to a point where there’ll be hundreds of lone wolves on American soil.”
This might happen, he said, if an American drone attack leads to many casualties, or if ISIS made a surge in recruitment to counter its retreat in Iraq, Syria, and Libya. “We believe that there are dozens of sympathizers who wanted to sign up but changed their mind at the last minute, based on the interrogations and discoveries that were made around the world.”
Islamist Preacher Lays Down The Law
Homosexuals should be put to death under sharia law whether the Islamic doctrine is implemented in Muslim countries or the West, said Britain’s most notorious radical Islamist preacher, Anjem Choudary, during an interview.
Asked whether gays who were confirmed to have engaged in homosexual activity should be stoned under sharia law, Choudary replied: “They would be wherever you are, whether in the East or the West, if we had the Sharia implemented, as you say, with a judiciary, with a legitimate leader and the courts, etc., were there. Then yes. They will face capital punishment. I mean, people differ about the way that punishment would be implemented, but it would be the death penalty.”
Choudary made this statement on this reporter’s Sunday night weekend national talk radio program, “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio.”
Choudary is a founder of the outlawed pro-al Qaeda Al Muhajiroun organization in Britain. He is currently awaiting trial in the UK for allegedly encouraging support for ISIS.
ISIS Fighter: This Won’t Be The Last Time
The U.S. should expect more attacks like the terrorist massacre at the Orlando gay nightclub, according to Abu Bakr al-Maqdisi, an ISIS fighter who recently returned to the Gaza Strip after being wounded in Mosul, Iraq.
Maqdisi, a Palestinian, is not an ISIS leader or senior member. His opinions reflect his own analysis as an ISIS jihadist who says he spent time last year in Syria and Iraq with ISIS senior members and claims to be in regular contact with ISIS members via encrypted online forums.
Below is a partial transcript of this reporter’s exclusive interview with Maqdisi.
Abu Bakr, what is your opinion on the Orlando attack?
In the name of Allah the merciful and compassionate, and after our prayers and praise to the prophet Muhammad, the heroic attack Allah made possible for our martyr brother Omar Mateen is being praised. Allah helped, by the hands of the courageous martyr brother Omar, to deal a painful blow to the country that is the head of the infidels in the world. This is a painful blow to the fool American president, Obama, who enjoys killing Muslims in the name of democracy and the fight against terror. Obama leads a coalition of terror that kills Muslim women and children day and night in Islamic countries that he occupies with the help of local infidel leaders.Aaron Klein
