Orlando Terror Shooting Preceded by ISIS Call for Local Attacks During Ramadan

Monday, June 13th, 2016

The worst shooting attack in the history of the United States came after call to Muslims by ISIS official Abu Mohammed al Adnani, urging a “month of hurt” in America and in Europe.

In the wee hours of Sunday, a gunman armed with an assault weapon and a handgun walked into the Pulse Orlando nightclub in downtown Orlando, Florida and shot to death 50 people, wounding 53 more. He held 30 people hostage for at least three more hours until an Orlando police SWAT team finally stormed the building and freed the captives, killing the terrorist in the process.

But the scene for that Florida nightmare was set at least a month earlier, when the spokesperson for Islamic State told the terror group’s supporters in an internet audio recording: “The smallest action you do in the heart of their land is dearer to us than the largest action by us, and more effective and more damaging to them.” The message, released by ISIS on May 21, was translated by the SITE Intelligence Group.

Adnani continued in the statement: “And if one of you wishes and tries hard to reach the Islamic State, then one of us wishes to be in your place to hurt the Crusaders day and night without sleeping, and terrorize them so that the neighbor fears his neighbor.”

In this way, ISIS (also known as Da’esh) is nurturing and building homegrown terror networks around the world, thus encouraging those who live “abroad” to launch attacks locally ‘as their religious duty.’

According to CNN, Adnani is believed to have been the ISIS official tasked with command responsibilities over the attacks that were carried out in Brussels and Paris.

The raised level of intensity in the call for action, however, also signifies the desperation with which the group views its current status in Syria and Iraq. ISIS is beginning to lose ground in those areas due to the gradual gains made by the U.S.-led coalition forces and also by Russian air strikes on their positions in Syria.

New York Police Department officials have raised the alert level in the Big Apple in response to the events that took place over the weekend, as did Los Angeles police, who arrested and took into custody a heavily armed suspect when he appeared to be intent upon targeting a local “gay pride” parade.

Terrorists’ Village of Yatta Sealed Off

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

The village of Yatta in the southern Hebron region has been sealed off by the IDF following the Sarona Market terror attack on Wednesday night.

The two Islamic terrorists, both 21-years-old, are cousins, and come from the same village.

No entry or exit is allowed to or out from the terrorists’ village at the moment.

Both terrorists were residing illegally in Tel Aviv. One had returned from a trip to Jordan a few months ago.

The village of Yatta has a long history of terror attacks.

Researchers and Arabs in the Hebron region believe that many of the villagers of Yatta are actually descendants of Jews who were forced to convert to Islam a few hundred years ago during the Ottoman period. In particular, members of the Mahamra (“winemaker” Makhamreh מחאמרה) clan are generally believed to be of Jewish descent.

It is known that at least until the 4th century CE, Yatta (the Bibilical Jutta) was a large Jewish town. A Jewish cemetery going back 1800 years still exists in the village.

The terrorists in the Sarona attack have been identified as Khalid and Muhamad Mahamra (Makhamreh).

Khalid Mahamra is known to be associated with Hamas and studied in a Jordanian military university.

11 Killed in Car Bombing Attack Near Istanbul University

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

Seven police officers and four civilians were killed and 36 others were wounded in a massive explosion Tuesday morning at the Vezneciler metro station in the Beyazit district in Istanbul. Three of the injured were in critical condition.

The attack took place on the first day of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, in a nation led by a government that has grown increasingly observant of Islamic cultural mores and restrictions.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Nachshon, no Israelis were killed or injured in the terror attack, “according to the information we have from our Consulate.”

A car bomb detonated at around 8:35 am as a police bus passed a police station while heading to Istanbul University for regular duty, according to Istanbul Governor Vasip Sahin.

Police evacuated the area and exams scheduled for the day at the nearby university were cancelled.

Security was increased in the Vezneciler neighborhood where the attack took place, and bomb disposal teams were sent to the site. Gunshots were heard immediately following the blast, the Anadolu news agency reported.

There has not yet been any claim of responsibility for the attack. However, Turkey has been a prime target for the Kurdish Workers’ Party PKK terror organization, as well as Da’esh (ISIS) in recent months.

France Continues Funding PA General Budget, thereby Paying Salaries to Terrorists

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

{Originally posted to the PMW website}

Following Palestinian Media Watch‘s exposure that the Palestinian Authority general budget funds the PA hate and terror promotion and rewards terrorist prisoners with high salaries, the US, the EU, Norway, and other European donors all stopped giving money to the PA general budget so that their money would not go directly to pay salaries for Palestinian terrorists.

This is not true for France. The PA announced last week that France signed agreements to give the PA money for various projects and in addition: “financial aid directly to the public treasury in the amount of 8 million euro.”

The PA general budget that France is contributing to pays monthly salaries to terrorists like Hamas bomb maker Abdallah Barghouti, whose bombs murdered 67 people, and Abbas Al-Sayid, who planned two suicide bombings in which 35 were killed, as well as all other Palestinians imprisoned for terror crimes.

The French government should note that the PA pays more than $12 million a month in salaries to terrorist prisoners. [Official PA TV, June 11, 2014] Accordingly, France’s 8 million euro ($8.9 million) will cover approximately three weeks of terrorists’ salaries.

The PA salary payments to terrorists have been documented extensively by PMW since 2011, most recently in the report The PA’s Billion Dollar Fraud, which documents that despite having promised international donors that it had ceased rewarding terrorists with salaries, the PA still continues this practice.

Recently, Mahmoud Abbas has indirectly confirmed PMW’s charge. When the Norwegian Foreign Minister complained to Abbas about the PA paying terrorists’ salaries, Abbas did not deny it but said it is not with Norwegian money: “In the meeting, I emphasized that this support program in which financial payments are increased the [longer] the prisoners serve time [in prison], is unacceptable… Abbas responded by repeating assurances that Norwegian funds are not going to finance the program.” [Dagen (Norway), May 4, 2016]

This is not true for France, which funds the PA budget directly.

The following is the article in the PA daily about French funding of the PA’s general budget:

“[PA] Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah briefed the government members during the weekly meeting held today [May 25, 2016] in Ramallah, regarding results of the meeting he held in his office yesterday with French Prime Minister Manuel Valls… The [PA] prime minister expressed his gratitude to the French government for the ongoing support that it gives to the Palestinian people, whether directly or through the European Union. Likewise, he praised the three agreements that were signed during the visit. They are the agreement to fund the administration of a wastewater project in Hebron in the amount of 13 million euro, the agreement to carry out research and for the French Agency to give technical aid for future development of Palestine in the amount of 500,000 euro, and the agreement to give financial aid directly to the public treasury in the amount of 8 million euro.”
[Donia Al-Watan (independent Palestinian news agency), May 25, 2016]

Fatah spokesman Ahmad Assaf:
“The Ministry of Prisoners’ Affairs [Today the PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs, that receives the same budget from the PA, Ed.] established in the Palestinian National Authority has the third highest monthly budget in the PA, meaning it is the third largest PA government ministry. That is, over 40 million shekels [i.e., 12 million dollars] a month, which the Palestinian Authority pays the prisoners, the released prisoners and their families.”
