So, You Thought Hezballah was Merely an Israeli Problem?

 

You read the news and almost every time, if not every time for most, when the Hezballah is reported, it is virtually always to do with Israel or some other conflict in the Middle East. Hezballah is mentioned in threats to fire missiles striking in Israel, tunneling beneath the Lebanon border into Israel with intent of infiltration raids on Israeli civilians, fighting alongside Bashir al-Assad Syrian forces aided by Iran and the IRGC in Syria, aiding with training as well as fighting allied with the Houthi rebel forces in Yemen and in that rare occasional report which mentions the tri-border region in South America where Hezballah has a series of training areas where Argentina shares borders with Brazil plus Paraguay. The areas you almost never hear references to Hezballah is in Europe, Asia, North America and southern Africa. Perhaps this is due to such events being swept neatly under the legal carpet presumably for the common good of the society. After all, no political figure wants to hear the news reporting of any Hezballah plots to carry out an attack using three or so metric tons of an explosive, say, ammonium nitrate, anywhere near their district, city, county, state or country, all depending on the political level which would be so threatened. Perhaps the political pressures could affect the way in which any such threat would be detected, investigated, possibly prosecuted or, to avoid any undue strain on the body politic, and arrange for other means of handling those involved.

 

Well, guess what. That is right, such a terror threat which was foiled with minimal fanfare and without anyone being charged, that despite one initially being arrested, all because the timing was off. This has come to light thanks to a deep investigation carried out by The Telegraph where it was reported that Hezballah had been caught planning a terror strike in or around London with, you guessed it, using metric tons of ammonium nitrate. MI-5, assisted by the London Police Department, uncovered the stash containing thousands of disposable ice packs filled with ammonium nitrate. This amount was considerably more than was used in the Oklahoma City bombing that killed 168 people and damaged hundreds of buildings. The raids were carried out on three businesses and one home in North West London by MI-5 and authorities after a months-long investigation. It was stated that MI-5 was acting on a tip from a foreign government which uncovered the major terrorist plot linked to the radical Islamist terror organization and Iranian ally, Hezbollah.

 

Here is where everything becomes interesting and contains a political attempt to cover up the entire series of events as they came at an inconvenient time. What makes it all the more intriguing was that there was one suspect, a man in his forties, arrested in connection with the raids, though he was later released without charge. The fact that only one person was detained, and then no charges made concerning a plot of such size makes for numerous questions to arise. What had authorities so worried that there was a code of silence concerning the entire affair and no arrests, trials or other ramifications from a months long investigation. Presumably, citing “well-placed sources”, the report claimed that the terror plot had been disrupted by a covert intelligence operation “rather than seeking a prosecution,” which is puzzling. Where things become somewhat clearer is when we are told that this plot was timed during the time of the negotiations and pending of the Iran nuclear deal. This was where The Telegraph suggested that the matter was withheld from the public in order to keep “the Iran nuclear deal afloat.” Still, it was reported that the plot was so serious that then Prime Minister David Cameron and then Home Secretary Theresa May were personally briefed on the discovery of the explosive material. One need not read much further to see where to begin to look to see the origination of the demand that this be kept as quiet as possible and not to make any large display including arrests which could have led to some very uncomfortable complications. After all, this was around the point that the Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA) and we all knew instinctively that nothing, and we mean nothing, was to come between the P5+1 and the Iran deal.

The British public has every reason to be quite put out by such political suppression of such an important investigation to the point that there were no arrests or other actions taken beyond raids to impound the explosives while not pursuing further actions. We ask, how is it possible to have such a plot with three-metric tons of explosives but not have any people involved with the use of the explosives or even a group planning for its use. Nobody was found or even to be of interest to MI-5 or the London Police concerning what was definitively a major pending terrorist attack. This cover-up probably extended to high officials in the British government requesting the silence on whomever the unidentified foreign government which provided the initial tip to the British assisting in their preventing a potential tragedy. They were likely contacted and had the situation explained and thus the request for not reporting their efforts in preventing the attack. The threat of terrorism is far too great and is of great importance to the people of every nation. Such an attempt would be politically important as well as the right for the people to know the truth about the world we all live within. But the news and the ruling elite do not treat the people in all too many countries as being capable of handling the truth. Kind of reminds one of the critical lines from some movie. So, because the people are too unsophisticated, too ignorant, so delicate, so uneducated and so emotionally unstable that they are deemed not capable of living in a world where they are told what the reality actually is. This is why the news granted for public consumption is not the reality of the world but a picture of a world with just the right kind of problems which permit the political class to remain in power unchallenged and apparently with everything under control. Telling the people that a significant threat of a terror attack was planned in their precious city and was very probably prevented due to some unmentionable country providing a warning with sufficient information that MI-5 and the police could clean up the threat without even a ripple being told to those who were under this threat. Makes one feel as if the public is not entitled to the truth as they presumably cannot handle the truth.

 

 

This is where society has reached, the stage where there are two worlds, the one we are all left sleeping peaceably in our beds each night assured that all is well meanwhile the elites know the reality that they are fortunate that terror threats are discovered and it matters not by whom as long as the people are able to be left in blissful ignorance. This is a sad commentary on our societies as it provides a picture where the people are expected to simply accept the reality fed them by a coordination of the political class and their media allies. The media also does not believe that the people can handle reality, so they sell the people a story-line which lulls them into a sense of being fully protected and safe. The powers that be insist on keeping everyone within the lines they set out for the public and the media and the politicians work to provide as little of the real threats from being identified as it might upset their ability to be reelected, and that is all that matters, right? Why should the people expect for their ruling elite who are chosen time after time to return to their comfortable little jobs while the decision to place trust in these elected officials is all a mirage. So we have what is an important treaty in the wings, well, better not tell the people that those who the politicians are about to make a deal concerning the manufacturing of nuclear weapons were planning what would have been one of the largest terror attacks for somewhere in London to be executed by the terrorist groups which handles the worldwide terror network for the Iranians. The politicians wanted the treaty as it would allow for trade and making large profits for the people who really matter, so the regular folk need not be troubled with any such information which could be distressing. This goes double if it might make for difficulty in carrying on business as usual and making their financiers happy. So, rest easy, they made raids and took away all the explosives and nobody was responsible for the planned terror strike or for hiding three metric tons of explosives, it all just assembled all by itself without any human intervention. And not to worry, the people planning the attack would never attempt to try so again, they probably promised. You know, they promised that they would go home and never try such an attack as was spoiled again just as Iran has promised not to manufacture nuclear weapons or more advanced ballistic missiles, you know, just like the ballistic missiles they have been testing. Read about these tests here, here, here, here and here. We hope you have a nice day and remember not to worry; your worrying would only upset the governing class.

Israel Watching World Reaction to Terror War

The first thing which must be understood, should Israel wish to conclusively end Hamas and Islamic Jihad, not just their rocket launches, shooting, sniping, launching balloons and kites to spread incendiaries, but end all of it and their ability to even throw a rock at Israel, could be ended. Israel could decide to target the commanders from unit commanders up to Yahya Sinwar and be done with this within a week. Decapitate both terror armies leaving them with absolutely no leadership, political or military, it makes no difference, they just dress up differently so that the Europeans can claim they are dealing with civilized people. None are civilized as their methods prove beyond any doubt. But they know that Israel would never resort to such tactics as it would verily upset the Europeans and the United Nations. They might even be tempted to remove Israel from the United Nations claiming that Israel was no longer welcome at their table. They could ban the Israeli Ambassador from the Cafeteria or take away his executive washroom key or find some other means of showing Israel they were displeased. But it is not their citizens sleeping in bomb shelters nor are they hearing sirens even when they are not sounding because their citizens have nerves on a rough edge. Their societies do not have to adapt each month to the latest forms of terrorist attacks. What will it be this month, rocks the size of cantaloupes thrown through car windshields, Molotov cocktails at busses thrown in groups of twenty to fifty engulfing the bus with fire, cars or trucks speeding through crowds or bus stops or down sidewalks, drive-by shootings, knifings or possibly a mass assault on the Western Wall? Their citizens are not facing such a wide range of attacks, but be assured that if it works in Israel, then it will be spread around the world over time. These tactics will never just end with Israel unless the world allows Israel to put down such terrorists. Such a world would provide the sign necessary to bring terrorism worldwide to an abrupt end. It would be that simply, allow Israel to prove terror cannot work and will bring only death and not allow the massing of money as the terror leaders now do living on the backs of their people and living it large.

 

Were the world to be serious about ending terrorism, then we would see such in their reactions to the attacks on Israel. If you are going to fight terrorism, then it starts in Jerusalem and Gaza and the Shomron and in Israel where its deepest roots are planted. The world cannot hope to end terrorism and to continue to allow huge amounts of aid monies to go to the terror masters in Gaza and the Shomron, beyond the Golan and the Blue Line, and from here to the world backed by the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, Islamic State in Nigeria, across the Africa Transition Zone and in the Sinai Peninsula. The same terror that strikes Sri Lanka, Melbourne in Australia, Coptic Christian monastery in Egypt, Amsterdam in the Netherlands, the Jordanian town of Fuheis, and we could go through the entirety of this list and bore every reader to tears, so instead that link. Terrorism is a disease on society and the tool of evil. Terrorism makes no difference between military and civilian and when the terrorist does differentiate between military and civilian, they will more often target civilian over military. Should the world allow terrorism to defeat Israel or make Israel uninhabitable, then the forebearers of terror will set out to do the same to the rest of the world. Each time that terrorists attack, the world is dealt a test of their fortitude and resolve. Will they simply turn their heads away and pretend that nothing of questionable origins actually happened? That is the reaction which we witness more often than actually addressing the situation and admitting that the world has a problem. The world leadership at least is consistent, they demand that Israel not take actions against terror and they ignore terrorism in their own backyards. This head-in-the-sand reaction to terrorism will simply empower the terror masters and postpone taking the required steps potentially making the eventual task of ridding the world of terrorism being put-off until it will have become a far greater effort. The world is critical of Israel reacting to a terror attack by neutralizing the perpetrator claiming that such should never be the reaction and that the terrorists should be negotiated with or allowed to escape rather than use force. Force has become taboo as a modern world need not resort to the use of violence, the death penalty or anything which causes a loss of life, well, except terrorism which apparently is permitted provided the chosen target is considered acceptable.

Terrorism against Israel is not only acceptable but financially rewarded by aid money coming from the United Nations, European Union, European countries, many Arab nations, Iran, numerous terror sponsors and other sources. Nations and both national and international organizations which reward terrorists with financial support are some of the most reprehensible sources of terrorism. The beginning of every terror attack begins with a source of funds. The planners, the political backing, the propaganda, the publicity and political cover all have their required cost. Those who are behind terrorist attacks may be true believers but they still require being financially rewarded. Even the most fanatical cannot survive purely on their hatred, they require food, shelter and financial rewards otherwise they might have to actually work. Getting a real job would take away from their terror organizing time, not to mention that nations involved with the spread of terror tend to have very poor economic conditions and their inattention to the economy breeds terrorists as there is nothing else which pays rewards of a similar nature. This leads to societies where hatred breeds more hatred and violence breeds more violence and there is no end to the spiral. While the people at the bottom end up giving up their lives for a cause which is thrust upon the society by people who not only would never die for that cause, but are becoming wealthy having other people die for their cause. But if the world were to be serious about ending terrorism, they would start by backing Israel doing whatever it takes to end the terrorist forces surrounding her. Such would start with Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the PLO (Palestinian Authority) and Hezballah in Lebanon and allowing Israel to do that which is considered necessary to assure her survival. That is where the problem begins and eventually goes full circle and ends at the same place, the powers that be in the European Union and the United Nations do not desire allowing Israel the right to survive. If the fight to end terrorism starts in Israel, then these people refuse to allow such to start. They claim they will fight terror once Israel has been erased. That is their most grievous mistake as Israel is not going to die which means that they will refuse to fight terrorism and it will be their society which will cease to exist.

 

Israel is where this fight must begin and the rest of the world need take steps to follow in suit to what Israel does to end terror. But if the world continues to handcuff Israel with threats and other demands warning her not to react to her people under attack, or if the world continues to ignore these rockets pouring down in Israel. How is it that over three-hundred rockets were launched into Israel in a single day and it did not make a single American news network? We are willing to bet had Israel sent a three-man team into Gaza to hunt down and destroy rocket launching positions that would have been reported as Israeli forces invade Gaza on missions of destruction. But the world has no difficulty completely ignoring three-hundred rockets launched into Israel. This is the reality which will lead to the destruction of their societies as they will be paralyzed against any terrorist attacks because they refuse to recognize the existence of terrorism as that would also require their recognition that Israel has been subjected to terror and that would allow the Israelis to fight their terror. These political leaders are willing to have their society torn asunder rather than recognize that Israel should be permitted to fight their terrorist problems. This is a sickness and one of the effects of anti-Semitism being behind decisions made at the highest levels. How many people have read about the rocket barrage thrown at Israel over the last two days? If your news sources did not report these events, then you need a better source for news. There can be no worse ignorance than one caused in order to support the destruction of another society. This is the sickness which prevented the News from reporting that Israel faced a terrorist rocket bombardment as these same news sources would jump all over any Israel strong response beyond striking the same targets in Gaza yet again. Israelis are becoming sick and tired of this game and are soon going to demand an end to these attacks, a real end to these attacks. Then it will be interesting to see the response in Europe and the New York Times whose coverage will undoubtedly be Israel destroys Gaza Moon launch facilities and they will expect people to believe them.

Terror Strikes Sri Lanka

 

Already the death toll has been reported to be approaching three-hundred and is likely to exceed that number when the final count is known plus approximately five-hundred have been wounded after three churches and three hotels were targeted with explosions this Sunday in Sri Lanka. The hotels struck were the Shangri-La, Kingsbury Hotel and Cinnamon Grand; all of which are high end luxury hotels favored by tourists, specifically European and other Western nations. The churches attacked were St Anthony’s Church in the capital, St Sebastian’s in Katuwapitiya, north of Colombo, and local media has also reported a church in Batticaloa in Eastern Province (maps posted below). The targets are obvious, western tourists and Christians attending Easter Mass. We pray that these are the last of such on this day so holy to much of the world. Yet another attack has been reported at a house in Mahawila Gardens, Dematagoda which caused an ensuing fire.

There is no mystery to why terror strikes holy places on the most holy days of the year. In military jargon, these are target rich environments, when your main two goals are to murder as many infidels as possible and causing fear around the world for as many people as possible. The next question would be, why Sri Lanka. One reason is that the terrorists have easy access and another is these attacks will make the news across the world potentially causing some to forgo Easter Services this year. To some in Islam, this would prove a lack of faith and devotedness by Christians thus proving to them that Islam is the superior religion, the more powerful religion.

 

There have been signs that the Arab and Islamic world, the ones the mainstream media always adds the classification of extremist or other denotation implying that they are not “real” Muslims. But Muslims are encouraged to attack non-Muslims, specifically Christians and Jews (some fatwas include Buddhists and Hindus as well as any idolater, agnostic, atheist or any unbeliever essentially as they have expanded definitions in the Quran over the years broadening the areas and regions which are to be brought under Islam. Eventually, Allah has promised that Islam will be the only religion practiced on the Earth. We found these definitions explaining the difference between offensive Jihad and defensive Jihad and under what conditions each is practiced. Assuming we read them correctly, every Muslim leader is required to employ offensive Jihad against the Kuffar such that there would never be the need for defensive Jihad as the Muslims would always be the aggressors which would so terrorize the Kuffar that they would live in abject fear too frightened to attack the Islamic regions because of their greater strength. From what we read, the Muslims are either performing offensive Jihad to sufficient levels, otherwise they will face defensive Jihad. This would imply that Islamic nations which border any non-Islamic nation, they are either to make periodic attacks, at least once or twice each year, so as to place the fear of the Jihadists to such a point that these nations would never even consider attacking their Islamic neighbors. What if their neighbors had no intention of ever attacking their Islamic nation? This would be interpreted as proving any offensive Jihad was working exactly as in the Quran and the Hadiths. This is a self-fulfilling set of prophesies as if an Islamic is attacked, it is punishment for not being forceful enough in their offensive Jihad and if they are not attacked, that is because they have fulfilled their required offensive Jihad.

 

The terrorist attack in Sri Lanka is not an isolated case. Across the world there have been a consistent number of terrorist attacks mainly on Churches, Synagogues and Temples. There is the ongoing war waged by Boko Haram against the Christians and Animists in the regions centered on Nigeria but spreading across the entirety of the African Transition Zone (see map below). It was in response to these attacks that the French deployed troops to Mali to assist in preventing an Islamic takeover of that nation by force. The problems in Somalia are threatening of spreading into Kenya and there is still ongoing violence by the Sudan against the breakaway nation of South Sudan. Many of these internecine wars have existed for years and have simply become more intense over time. This violence is in addition to the tribal warfare still going on across Libya. And the violence between Islam and the rest of the world is not limited to Africa.

Terror has become a worldwide epidemic reaching into virtually every nation. In France over five-hundred churches have been firebombed or otherwise attacked since 9/11. The number of attacks worldwide is absolutely astonishing as depicted in the map below. We believe the yellow dots are domestic terror attacks such as the referenced “lone wolf” terror attacks while the red are parts of international terrorism. The numbers of attacks are indicative of where Islam is targeting. Currently the concentration has been in the Western world, specifically the regions under Judeo-Christian influence and the regions neighboring Muslim countries. Watching the news, one does not get much of a feel for the frequency and near universal direction where these attacks have targeted. The media attempts to cover up terrorism by downplaying the attacks. Often, as soon as such violence is perpetrated the media and the applicable law enforcement agencies including, or especially, the FBI immediately claiming that the attack definitely is not terror related. Then, after a few days when the news of the attack is all but forgotten comes the admission that it was indeed a terrorist attack. This is already counted as old news as the attack was days ago and the media has moved on thus the admission becomes back page news buried deep in the paper.

Eventually, the terrorism will reach such a point that it will no longer be something which can be ignored or minimized. When the people finally call upon the government to stand up and actually act to prevent these attacks. The people will demand that the government not only address the terrorism within the national boundaries, but to attack the sources and remove the people who are behind the attacks wherever in the world they may be found. Until that point is reached, these attacks will continue and only increase in frequency and severity. When will the world finally take the spreading terrorism seriously? Not until it becomes such a problem such that it can no longer be ignored. Government seldom take care of problems when they might be easily addressed but wait until the problem becomes impossible to leave along the side of the media coverage and becomes central to the news cycle as it has risen beyond any reason. This is a growing problem that will be pushed aside and the claim that it is beyond their ability to address as the government will wait until the people are willing to accept further curtailing of their freedoms in response to the attacks. The government never wants to address problems until they can use the problem in order to gain additional power depriving the citizens of rights such that the government gains more control. The government will demand that the people grant it additional power and accept restrictions to their freedoms before they will finally act and accept that the problem exists. Some places have already reached the point where they had no choice but to address the problem such as Israel, African Transition Zone, India and a growing situation across Europe. The United States is trailing Europe by a mere five years or there about. How long before this reaches a head? We wish we could tell you but that is beyond our ability of prognostication.
