Lebanon, Syria & Israel: The Coming War

“There is war coming to this border region, a very big war is coming. Iran and Syria with their terrorist proxies are spoiling for a very big war.” –Sean Osborne

By Sean Osborne, Associate Director, Military Affairs

9 February 2007: The brief firefight of a day ago between Lebanese and Israeli ground forces was more serious and of more significant consequence than many people seem to realize. It was not just another fire fight or skirmish between Arabs and Jews in the Middle Bast. This event was something else.

Consider the core facts of the matter.

The impotent, virtually useless Lebanese Army, an army which cannot even maintain effective control over its own sovereign territory, intentionally engaged an Israeli armored force executing a border security mine-clearing mission while on sovereign Israeli territory.

Before August 2006 such an engagment would have been unthinkable for the Lebanese Army. Virtually suicidal by any tactical standard. Like a kitten taking a swipe at an adult pit bull.

After August 2006 not only was such an attack thinkable but the potential repercusions were competently considered beforehand and determined to be desirable by the Lebanese Army field commander. Moreover, the Lebanese commander had been very well advised by the Israeli commander that he had no intention of crossing the blue line and entering Lebanese territory. Yet, this Lebanese commander still ordered his forces to engage fires with the Israeli armored force.

Why? For what purpose or tactical necessity did the Lebanese engage the Israeli force?

The Lebanese Army must have known Hezbollah had placed those Iranian shaped-charge mines on Israeli territory, and they must have known the Israeli’s would come and clear them. The Lebanese Army sat and waited for the Israeli force to show up. The Israeli’s did. The Israeli’s told the Lebanese they were going to clear the mines.

Therefore it seems obvious that the entire operation of placing of the mines on Israeli soil must have been a set-up, a trap to provoke or achieve some tactical result above and beyond what this event appears to have been in hindsight. It is a failed tactical repeat of the kidnapping event of July 2006.

The Lebanese Army is either working in coordination with Hezbollah, or that was no Lebanese Army unit, but Hezbollah soldiers in Lebanese Army uniforms and vehicles.

There is war coming to this border region, a very big war is coming. Iran and Syria with their terrorist proxies are spoiling for a very big war. I see no other tactical explanation which makes an iota of sense.

What California CAIR Director Hussam Ayloush has to say about Israel & “Zio-Nazis”

CAIR’s Ayloush: Poison Discourse Dispelled

By Rachel Neuwirth

8 February 2007: Hussam Ayloush [1], the director of the California branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) [2] is fond of comparing Israelis to Nazis and Israel to Nazi Germany. For example, he appeared on a TV talk show [3] during the Hezb’allah-Israel war of 2006 and compared Israel’s acts of self-defense following Hezb’allah’s attack to Nazi atrocities during World War II. He did not criticize Hezb’allah at all for bombing Israeli territory, killing three Israeli soldiers and capturing two others, even though it was an entirely unprovoked attack. Nor did Ayloush have a word of criticism for the rockets that Hezb’allah rained down indiscriminately on Israeli communities, killing 43 Israeli civilians, some of them Arabs. But Israel’s military response to the attack on its territory and citizens he considered Nazi-like. Ayloush is also fond of labeling [4] anyone who expresses sympathy with Israel a “Zio-Nazi.” [5] One of the individuals that he so labeled was myself, in an e-mail to me.

America needs to be “Howling Mad”

“They know one thing: after 9/11, the blowback was too bad for them. They miscalculated There is not going to be some interim hit on this country where we can attack them, they are going to try to make the next one - one that will stop us from reacting, and that’s really the horror of all this.” -Dwight Schultz

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

7 February 2007: Amid all of the criticism levied at Hollywood, actor Dwight Schultz “gets it.” Among the Hollywood elite, there are those who are not only reality challenged, they will go to nearly absurd levels to avoid the slightest appearance of being politically incorrect. In response to pressure from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) against the popular fictional television series 24 two years ago, for example, Fox aired a public service announcement featuring the show’s star Kiefer Sutherland, urging viewers to avoid stereotyping Muslims. Despite the diversity of villains since then that included Americans, Germans, Russians, Europeans, and even a fictional U.S. president, 24 finds itself back in the hot seat with CAIR over its latest storyline where Islamic terrorists succeed in detonating a nuclear bomb in California.

Ironically, based on the location of the nuclear detonation in that episode, Dwight Schultz and his family would be vaporized if it were real. Thankfully, the series is fictional, but the threat facing America today is not. The good news is that the majority of people have the ability to discern fact from fiction, and television from real life. The bad news, however, is that more Americans are falling into a dangerous malaise about the threat facing us. More dangerous than malaise, many otherwise reasonable and rational people are being misled by ill-informed politicians and the pressure of political correctness at a time when it is most perilous to the survival of our nation. Hollywood is no exception. Compared to the days of WWII when Americans were portrayed as the heroes in films, Hollywood today seems to deliberately avoid portraying America favorably in the war against terrorism, taking at best a lukewarm stance.

Dwight Schultz (1980's photo)

Enter Dwight Schultz, best known as Captain “Howling Mad” Murdock of the popular 1980’s television series the “The A-Team.” With the same tenacity and adeptness portrayed in the fictional A-Team series, Dwight Schultz has assembled a modern day version of real-life commandos whose purpose is to deliver the truth of the status of America today, including the truth about the threats to our country. Through the “Howling Mad Radio Show,” along with radio commandos J.J. McKay and The Coach, Dwight Schultz and his team informs America about the perils facing America.

Offering his well-researched expectations pertaining to the next attack on America, “Howling Mad” Dwight Schultz succinctly stated:

“They know one thing: after 9/11, the blowback was too bad for them. They miscalculated There is not going to be some interim hit on this country where we can attack them, they are going to try to make the next one - one that will stop us from reacting, and that’s really the horror of all this. And they are very active, and we know they are active…”

Discussing our handling of the situation in Iraq, Mr. Schultz offered this well-reasoned analysis:

“We are doing precisely what our enemies want us to do, and the more we do what our enemies want to do, the more emboldened they are going to become and the closer we are going to come to the homeland attack - the big one. And that’s my great fear. And its not fear mongering - it’s reality.”

To those of us who walked at Ground Zero in New York, saw the carnage in Pennsylvania, and viewed the destruction at the Pentagon, the events of 9/11 will be indelibly etched in our minds forever. Nearly six years have passed since the worst attack on American soil. As time progresses from that fateful day, the memories of many Americans of the sights and the sounds of that tragic day seem to be dimming. We are sensing a communal disconnect from the reality of that act of war, especially among those who mentally confined the events to a television screen. So too are the observations of Dwight Schultz:

“Most of us who have thought seriously about 9-11 and who were affected by it - and by no means was everybody-I knew people in California- and they said they felt ‘disconnected’ by the events in New York, they were not connected to it. I was stunned, and I realized that the way I was affected by 9/11 wasn’t the way everyone was affected. But those of us who were, we know how vulnerable we are…”

It is time for all Americans to again realize, with intellectual honesty, just how vulnerable we indeed are. But realization is simply not enough. It is also time for America once again to be “Howling Mad” as if out lives depend on it.

Because they do.

Explosion Rocks Kansas City Chemical Plant: Cause yet unknown

7 February 2007: Firefighters in Kansas city, Missouri responded to a chemical plant explosion and fire at approximately 2:15 p.m. local time today. The initial explosion and fire reportedly triggered secondary explosions, shaking the Kansas City’s East Bottoms area. The fire from the explosions at the plant, located at 910 North Prospect, Kansas City, MO, sent a large plume of black smoke drifting over the area north and east of downtown near the Missouri River. The explosion knocked out two large power lines near Front and Riverfront Road, causing sporadic power outages in the area.

Law enforcement sources interviewed by the Northeast Intelligence Network stated that they have yet to determine the cause of the initial explosion, but felt certain that the secondary explosions and fires were caused by the initial blast. Chemical plants and refineries in the U.S. have been on a long list of desirable targets for terrorists inside the U.S.

The Northeast Intelligence Network is closely following this incident and will provide additional details as they develop.

Israel reacts to Hezbollah provocation

By Sean Osborne, Associate Director, Military Affairs

7 February 2007: In the most recent series of provocations, Hezbollah terrorists have been moving from southern Lebanon into northern Israel opposite Moshav Avivim over the last several days, planting anti-tank and anti-personnel mines into sovereign Israeli territory. Israel, meanwhile, has advised Lebanon of its intentions to clear the mines from their territory with bulldozers supported by IDF forces, warning that they would return fire if fired upon by the Lebanese army.

At approximately 10:00 PM local time, the bulldozers began clearing the area, at which time were engaged by Lebanese forces. Hezbollah, meanwhile, is making preparations to engage Israeli forces in the same region. Reports to the Northeast Intelligence Network stated that firefights between Israeli IDF forces and the Lebanese military are taking place at this hour.

Canadian man arrested after crossing Niagara River on a raft in sub-zero temperatures

6 February 2007: At approximately 7:30 a.m. yesterday morning, a Canadian man in an 8′ inflatable raft was rescued from the swift current of the Niagara River as he attempted to cross into the U.S. in sub-zero wind chill conditions “so he could pay his credit card bill,” stated law enforcement officials. Wayne E. KINGWELL, 40, of Fort Erie, Ontario spent 5 hours in a rubber raft on the coldest day of the year hoping to make it to the U.S. before being rescued near Grand Island, NY after being spotted in the raft by a Grand Island resident. When rescued, KINGWELL told authorities that he routinely crosses the Niagara River in either an aluminum boat or rubber raft “to do some banking in Buffalo.”

Sources close to the Northeast Intelligence Network confirmed that the man was carrying three duffle bags that included $4,000 in cash and a laptop computer in his raft. Police and EMS officials threw the man a rope and pulled him to a dock at East River Road and Winkler Drive on Grand Island. After on-site evaluation by the Grand Island Fire Department, KINGWELL was transported to Mount St. Mary’s Hospital in Lewiston, where he was treated for hypothermia.

U.S. Attorney Terrance P. Flynn said “investigators are trying to determine the validity of a bizarre explanation that KINGWELL gave after he was rescued.”

Ahmadinejad: February 11 will be the day that Iran’s nuclear rights “will be established”

5 February 2007: While also announcing that Iranian scientists have found a cure for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), Iranian President Mamoud Ahmadinejad announced that February 11 is the day when the Iranian nation’s “inalienable right to access and use nuclear technology will be established.”

Interestingly, Ahmadinejad stated that “The Iranian nation will celebrate stabilization and establishment of its nuclear rights during the Ten-Day Dawn,” represents early February marking the date of the Islamic revolution that took place in Iran in 1979 - an event that led to the “Iranian Hostage Crisis” the following November.

American Graffiti or Al Qaeda Threat?

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

5 February 2007 Our aircraft are continued targets and potential tools of terrorists. Given their present status, magnified exponentially when viewed through the prism of 9/11, any suspicious events, oddities, and all unusual circumstances relating to our planes and their operation must be given significant consideration by the authorities.

Annie Jacobsen, author of Terror in the Skies, Why 9/11 could happen again, has been actively investigating a series of unusual circumstances involving mysterious writing in unusual areas aboard our aircraft. Having been an investigator in the private sector for the last 21 years, I have found Ms. Jacobsen to be a tenacious, well-reasoned, balanced and thorough investigative journalist. In this most recent case, I have had the opportunity to review her investigative findings to date. I have found the circumstances surrounding these writings to be curious to say the least.

One of my favorite quotations attributed to the mythical detective Sherlock Holmes is, “It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.” That quote just might be applicable to the matter under investigation by Ms. Jacobsen. Whatever the case, we are at war, and we cannot afford to overlook anything.

ARTICLE: American Graffiti or Al Qaeda Threat?

Case of Libyan children infected with HIV virus topic of new al Qaeda message

“You will only find honor with which to make progress and strength with which to protect yourselves in your true religion, which is based on disowning them and their servants and declaring open animosity to them. And their evil and corruption will only be stopped by fighting without leniency and performing non-stop jihad until there is no unbelief and all religion is for Allah.” — Abu Yahya al Libi

2 February 2007: A new al Qaeda video obviously directed at audiences in the West was released by al Qaeda through their media propaganda machine, As Sahab Productions. The 17 minute, 7 second video is titled The Children Contaminated by HIV in Libya and features Libyan terrorist Abu Yahya al Libi,(a/k/a Mohammed Hassan) as the narrator and speaker. The primary purpose of the video appears to be to stir anger among Muslims worldwide against the West in general and the U.S. and Great Britain specifically, accusing both countries of colluding with the Libyan government in the case against a Palestinian physician and five Bulgarian nurses accused of intentionally infecting 426 children at a hospital in the port city of Benghazi in the late 1990s. On December 19, 2006, a Libyan court found the Bulgarian nurses and Palestinian doctor guilty of infecting the children and sentenced them to death. The six are now appealing to Libya’s Supreme Court.

Last month, an international group of physicians and scientists urged Libya to free the medics, saying that accusations against them were unfounded.

That ugly crime which five nurses and a Palestinian doctor committed by injecting more than 400 Libyan children with the AIDS virus in a Benghazi hospital

So what has been the stance of their civilization and their democracy toward this ugly crime? Did you hear any one of their tyrants, or any one of their human rights foundations, or any one of their charities, or any one of their independent organizations merely talk about – much less condemn these victimized children, even indirectly, and mention their suffering and the suffering of their families or shed a tear in sympathy and mercy?! The case of the AIDS children isn’t the first case which the West has treated with such duplicity.

No, their application of double standards, especially when the victim is a Muslim, has become the most distinctive feature of their policies, stances and resolutions.
Where was the regime during the period in which the children were being fed the virus of murder and criminality, after which it portrayed itself as eager for justice, in search of the facts and in pursuit of the criminals, even though it is the leader in crime and corruption.

And the Crusade Continues-

The AIDS children in Libya

His Eminence Shaykh Abu Yahya al-Libi (may Allah protect him)

02:54 (Appearance of al-Libi in Video)

In the name of Allah, the most Compassionate, the most Merciful.

All praise is due to Allah, and may peace and prayers be upon His chosen Prophet and his family and companions.

As part of the series of crimes which the Crusader West presents from time to time as civilized gifts which fit in with its democracy, slogans and values, an old/new issue has again come to the fore to be a new poisoned dagger stabbing the body of our torn Islamic Ummah.

All have heard of that heinous crime for which we haven’t found an appropriate description in the dictionary, due to its extreme ugliness and lowliness, that ugly crime which five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor committed by injecting more than 400 Libyan children with the AIDS virus in a Benghazi hospital, injections which carried latent hatred and criminality; that crime which indicated a complete abandonment of all human values and revealed hearts in which hatred is embodied in its ugliest form.
So hatred has appeared in its most hideous state, in which murder is committed in the most despicable of ways, for this event to become a prominent title which introduces us to the values, civilization and real face of the West.

It is a crime which wasn’t committed by their armies which are used to criminality and have accustomed us to its ugliest forms, but was rather committed by those who traveled thousands of kilometers to treat and care for the people - or so they claimed - but suddenly, the nurses turned into cold-blooded, evil spirited murderers with hate filled hearts.

How [can there be such a covenant], when if they get victory over you, they neither respect you in the ties of kinship nor of covenant? With [fair words from] their mouths, they please you, but their hearts are defiant, and most of them are rebellious and wicked (9:8)

It is a crime whose weapon of destruction wasn’t the B-52 or F-16, nor were destructive 7-ton rockets fired, nor was there any dropping of the smart bombs whose smartness always leads to the murder of hundreds of women, children and elderly, for us to be told after every massacre that war cannot be freed of mistakes. No, the deadly weapon in this crime was an injection which should have contained medicine and healing, but instead introduced into the bodies of innocent children the lethal poison which would cause them constant pain and a slow death.

It is a crime which didn’t take place in the mountains of Tora Bora, nor the streets of Fallujah or Tal Afar, where a war which devours rocks and trees and melts man and stone under the pretext of “terrorists” in the area, which - for the civilized West - is a sufficient excuse to legitimize the annihilation of entire villages with their inhabitants. No, the scene of the crime was a hospital to which people go to seek treatment and medicine and to flee from illness, but suddenly, the hospital became an abattoir from which the healthy come out sick and the sick come out dead.

It is a crime which was not committed against people possessing weapons with which they are defending themselves, for the lying, hypocritical media to tell us that they are suspected extremists plotting what they call terrorist attacks. No, this war - and I call it a war - was waged in its most hideous form against children who carry innocence and purity in their hearts and souls. This, in brief, is the form the crime took, even though words are truly incapable of properly describing it.

Has the world witnessed hatred stronger then their hatred? Have you heard of a deed uglier and more atrocious than their deed? Has anyone seen savagery on a par with their savagery? And did anyone ever imagine that their criminality would descend to such lowliness?

Those who know the truth about these hateful infidels and haven’t been deceived by their pretty words and slogans and lying propaganda won’t be surprised by such a thing, because the Quran has summarized for us this long list of consecutive crimes in a single verse with which it exposed the truth about them, revealed the secret of their souls and described their actions with precision: “If they overcome you, they behave to you as enemies, and stretch out their hands and their tongues against you with evil And they desire that you reject the truth.” (60:2)

The infidel Crusader West has accustomed us to constant boasting that theirs is the bet of societies, most advanced of civilizations and the one most protective of the rights of man - and animal too - and that the world can only extract itself from its crises by following their path of democracy and doing as they do.

So what has been the stance of their civilization and their democracy towards this ugly crime? Did you hear any one of their tyrants, or any one of their human rights foundations, or any one of their charities, or any one of their independent organizations merely talk about - much less condemn - these victimized children, even indirectly, and mention their suffering and the suffering of their families or shed a tear in sympathy and mercy?! No, instead of that, they rushed shamelessly to express their sympathy and support for the murderous wolves as they bit the victims with their teeth and tore them apart with their claws, demonstrated indifference to the victims’ bleeding wounds, loud cries and continuous suffering, and directed all their effort into displaying sympathy and mercy for those wolves, for no other reason than that they are wolves just like them.
“The unbelievers are protectors, one of another.” (8:73)

What business does America have with five obscure Bulgarian nurses which makes its president promise to seek their release - their release and nothing else, not even extradition for trial in their supposedly just legal system?! They will accept nothing less than their release, so let their crimes be, let more than 400 children go to hell and let their families perish in their rage. And what business does the old hag Britain have with these criminals which makes her dog express his great sorrow and disappointment at the judgment passed on them and promise to do all he can to secure their release?!

It is the Nazarene faith which binds them to each other, and their statements embody the motivations of hostility and hatred to Islam and Muslims.

And their hypocrisy, charlatanism and camouflaging didn’t help them to take any stance other then this stance, with which they disgraced themselves and introduced themselves to all who didn’t know them before.

The case of the AIDS children isn’t the first case which the West has treated with such duplicity. No, their application of double standards, especially when the victim is a Muslim, has become the most distinctive feature of their policies, stances and resolutions.
There is Palestine - and what will make you realize what Palestine is-  in which the lives of dozens of unarmed men, women and children are taken at the hands of the criminal Jews. Yet despite all that, the Crusader West has only given the people of Palestine a lethal embargo and death-defying support to the Zionist murderers. When one of the soldiers of the state of the sons of Zion is killed, no sooner does the news reach them than they rush to condemn and deplore and send their condolences to the family of the “victim” - yes, “victim” in their dictionary. But when entire territories are bulldozed along with everything in them, and houses are demolished onto their residents, and mosques are bombed with worshipers inside, and cars are melted along with their passengers, and children’s limbs are scattered in the streets, and the cries of the helpless women and children fill the air, none of that pricks the hearts of the infidel Crusader West, nor is it considered in their dictionary to be a crime deserving of condemnation or indignation. Why? Because those killed are Muslims, and as log as that’s the case, they’re not victims deserving of sympathy, mercy or the continuous calls to stop the violent cycle of killing. And the same goes for Iraq, Afghanistan, Chechnya, Somalia and other Muslim lands.

This, the, is the West, and these are its values which it wants to offer us, and this is its democracy which it seeks to spread among us. So away with them and their civilization, values and “justice.” And this crime is a living example of the disregard shown by the regimes of treason and treachery for the lives of their repressed, helpless peoples and their scorn for their dignity.

If not, how then were thee butchers able to commit this crime against such a large number of innocent children without the regime of the tyrant of Libya, al-Qadhafi, having some knowledge or suspicion about it - or indeed, without colluding and taking part in this crime?

Where was the regime during the period in which the children were being fed the virus of murder and criminality, after which it portrayed itself as eager for justice, in search of the facts and In pursuit of the criminals, even though it is the leader in crime and corruption?

Where were the foundations of this crumbling regime? Where was its surveillance all this time? And how was this heinous crime committed in total secrecy and utter silence without it being noticed by its security forces and intelligence agencies which count the peoples’ breaths and follow them in all their affairs, whether minor or great? Or was it busy pursuing and chasing sincere Muslims to flatter the West and please its masters, just like it will please them by dropping the case of this heinous crime, as you will see in due time?

That’s why we say that the time has come, O Muslims, for you to recognize these hateful infidels as they really are, It’s time to recognize these hateful infidels as they really are;

They are murderers, killers, and criminals who sow corruption on Earth. And don’t be fooled by their shiny slogans and false words, because - by Allah - your blood, lives and children are worthless to them.

You will only find honor with which to make progress and strength with which to protect yourselves in your true religion, which is based on disowning them and their servants and declaring open animosity to them. And their evil and corruption will only be stopped by fighting without leniency and performing non-stop jihad until there is no unbelief and all religion is for Allah.

“Were it not that Allah repels one set of people by means of another, there would surely have been destroyed monasteries, churches, and synagogues, and mosques in which the name of Allah is mentioned much. Allah will certainly aid those who aid Him, for verily, Allah is strong and mighty.” (22:40)

And all praise is due to Allah, first and last.
