Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri The Coordinator 2015 Part 17-40-The Deep Battle against the West

  1. 1. Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri The Coordinator 2015 Part 17-40-The Deep Battle against the West By Capt (Ret) C de Waart, share in Confidence "We won the day Europe and US dreamt of reclaiming Tal Hamis, Mosul, Sinjar, Tikrit, Qaim, Derna, Tell Abyad, and more," said the ISIS spokesperson 1 . "On the other hand, we – with Allah's help – want Paris, before Rome and Islamic Iberia and after we blow up the White House, Big Ben, and the Eiffel Tower before Paris, and Rome," he warned. Adding to the list of achievements, al-Adnani threatened that ISIS had massive goals. "We want Kabul, Karachi, Riyadh, Tehran, Baghdad, Damascus, Jerusalem, and Cairo, Sana'a, Doha, Abu Dhabi, and Amman. The Muslims will return to power, to be the vanguard and lead in every place." --- ISIL spokesman Mohammed al-Adnani March 12. EXCLUSIVE -2 -: ISIS will carry out '9/11 in Europe within two years' and fanatics are recruiting migrants in Libya with the promise of 'white virgins', claims Gaddafi's exiled cousin and former Special Envoy Ahmed Gaddaf al-Dam, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's cousin and former intelligence official, has professed that 'not less than half a million' migrants will set sail from Libya to European shores this year. The Islamist groups are bringing them into the camps and turning them into soldiers. They give them money, tell them about Allah and heaven and the many white virgins waiting for you there. ----Ahmed Gaddafi al-Dam IS also announced on Thursday it was accepting its “brothers in west Africa” Boko Haram in Nigeria after they swore allegiance to the IS cause. Audio recording posted on ISIL- affiliated websites lauds "expansion of caliphate to West Africa". "We announce to you to the good news of the expansion of the caliphate to West Africa because the caliph... has accepted the allegiance of our brothers," ISIL spokesman Mohammed al-Adnani said in the message. "The Islamic State will remain, and it is only getting stronger and achieving more victories," said Abu Mohammad al-Adnani in the recording. He claimed that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi accepted the oath of allegiance by his Boko Haram counterpart and called on Muslims to immigrate to the area. The ISIS spokesperson directed several threats towards Jews and Christians, saying they faced two options: "Convert to Islam or pay the ultimate price when your armies are expelled from Muhammad's peninsula, from Jerusalem, and all Muslim lands." He warned that if Jews and Christians choose a third way – and insist on their current path – they will soon regret their choice and be unable to stop the surge to the caliphate. "The Jews and the Crusaders are scared and weak," said al-Adnani. The weak and the cowardly cannot achieve victory," he stressed, emphasizing they were cowards for not declaring their war is against Islam and the Sunnis. He also belittled the West's effort to kill senior ISIS commanders and fighters, saying death does not concern them and only fuels the fires of jihad. Even as the US-led coalition executes strike after strike in Syrian territories of ISIS, the terror group's spokesperson continued to claim they had the upper hand. Al-Adnani said his group won the moment the pentagon, the coalition, and Europe celebrated when they reclaimed control of small towns like Kobani.

Recall: Recent Raid Yields ‘ISIS Manifesto: 100-Year Plan for a World Khilafah 3 ’ The United Sunni States: 2114 by, Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium | RT News In March 2014, the home of an Islamic State (IS) commander was raided by Iraqi Special Forces. Among the items found in the residence was a manifesto written by what appears to be the Islamic State Cabinet Member, Abdullah Ahmed al-Meshedani, aka Abu Kassem. Reportedly the director of foreign fighter and suicide bomber transport, little is known about al-Meshedani’s present life. Based on these documents, however, TRAC analysts have garnered a rare glimpse not only into his vision for the Islamic State but also the Islamic State’s current and future plans. As much mystery that surrounds the Islamic State, there is equally as much complexity that surrounds this manifesto. Signed off on the final page by Abu Kassem’s alias “al- Mashhadani al-Iraqi,” the document reads like a hybrid between Islamic State goals and ex- Baathist and Republican Guard concepts left over from Saddam Hussein’s era. The documents are extremely well written with a high command of Arabic often reserved for and used by accomplished scholars. The writings are not necessarily religious but show a mastery of military knowledge and Arab nationalism. ONE HUNDRED YEARS ONWARD; The copy of Abu Kassem’s manifesto that TRAC holds is merely a portion of the original work; thirteen pages are in tact, spanning from page 19 to page 40; some sections were missing or too blurred to decipher. Beginning on page 19, the document has three distinct topics that intertwine to create an unprecedented insight into the Islamic State’s policy, economics and goals. Foreign suicide bombers launch assault on Ramadi BY CALEB WEISS AND BILL ROGGIO | March 13th, 2015 | weiss.caleb2@gmail.com and billroggio@longwarjournal.org | @Weissenberg7 Abu Abdullah al Australi, who has been identified as Australian citizen Jake Bilardi. 3 https://shariaunveiled.wordpress.com/2014/10/14/recent-raid-yields-isis-manifesto-100-year-plan-for-a-world- khilafah/
  3. 3. The Islamic State utilized at least 13 suicide bombers yesterday in an attack on the city of Ramadi 4 , the besieged capital of the western Iraqi province of Anbar. Many of these suicide bombers were foreigners, and included a Belgian, an Australian, a Chechen, an Uzbek, a Moroccan, a Tunisian, an Egyptian, and two Syrians. Iraqi officials have not disclosed the number of people killed in the suicide assault, but medical officials in the area told Reuters that five were killed. This toll has not been confirmed and could likely be much higher. The attacks came from the directions of Albu Aytha, to the northeast of Ramadi, and Albu Diab, which is northwest of the city center, according to Shafaaq News. Iraqi officials said that security forces were able to repel the attack, and some sources claimed that Iraqi Security Forces and Sunni tribal fighters killed 41 Islamic State fighters. The number of Islamic State fighters killed during the attack on Ramadi could not be confirmed. One suicide bomber was able to detonate on a bridge in the western portion the city, Reuters reported. The Islamic State has released several images from the attack, including one that shows a suicide bomber detonating on the Japanese bridge in the city. Another photo set shows the results of the battle near the bridge, including the bodies of several Iraqi security personnel killed during the fighting. At least two US-supplied M113 armored personnel carriers were also captured. The assault near the bridge targeted the Iraqi Army’s 1st Division. Iraqi officials said that the Islamic State assaulted the 2nd regiment of the 1st Division, but the attack was repelled and no losses were reported. However, the pictures released by the Islamic State contradict these claims. Other photos show several other suicide bombings as well as the suicide bombers themselves. In a photo set released today, one destroyed Humvee can be seen near the city. At least four photos show Islamic State fighters firing from technicals or with small arms fire on Iraqi personnel or tribal forces. While several news agency noted that the jihadists launched more than 100 mortar rounds in the attack, the Islamic State did not release photos that show mortars being used. The jihadist group published several photos showcasing its foreign suicide bombers. It identified them as Abu Bakr al Belgiki (Belgian), Abu Abdullah al Australi (Australian), Usama bin Laden al Uzbeki (Uzbek), Abu Musa al Qawqazi (Chechen), Abu Hassan al Shami (Syrian), Abu Bara al Masri (Egyptian), Abu Abdullah al Maghrebi (Moroccan), Abu Bara al Shami, and Abu Malik al Tunisi (Tunisian). Abu Abdullah al Australi has been identified as Jake Bilardi, an Australian teenager. The Islamic State has released one other image of Bilardi in the past. The Islamic State has touted its foreign suicide bombers that have executed attacks in Iraq. Suicide bombers from Western countries such as France, Germany and Denmark, and Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Iran, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and Russia have carried out attacks for the jihadist group in Iraq. The suicide assault, or coordinated attack using one or more suicide bombers and an assault team, is a tactic frequently used by the Islamic State, al Qaeda and its branches, as well as allied groups such as the Afghan Taliban, the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan, Lashkar- e-Taiba, and the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan. Suicide assaults are commonly executed by jihadist groups in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, and Nigeria. The attack took place as heavy fighting has been reported in the town of Karmah, east of Fallujah. Iraqi officials have claimed that security forces liberated most of the town, killing over 300 Islamic State fighters. However, this number is likely to be exaggerated. It was also reported today that Iraqi personnel have reached the city center of Karmah, with the eastern half being cleared of Islamic State personnel. The Islamic State has released a video 4 http://www.longwarjournal.org/archives/2015/03/foreign-suicide-bombers-launch-assault-on-ramadi.php

The video also shows several destroyed Iraqi military vehicles C: it is only a matter of time when we will see these events taking place in our hoe towns) Spanish authorities claim to have dismantled a jihadist terrorist cell in the north African enclave of Ceuta. 11 March, They say it was planning to carry out an attack in Spain. Two young men were arrested, one Spanish, the other a Moroccan. The Interior Ministry said the early morning raids were part of the same operation in which four people were arrested in January. “They (the suspects) have been already radicalised and indoctrinated in such a way that they are perfectly ready to commit attacks,” said Spain’s Interior minister Jorge Fernandez Díaz. Police say the two arrested men had access to firearms and had been actively following the Islamic State group on the internet. The ministry says the six men held in the two operations in Ceuta this year had profiles similar to those involved in the Paris terror attacks. Spain has made more than 20 arrests of suspected Islamist militants since September. 2015 euronews The Gaddafi clan's most senior figurehead has warned of 'a 9/11 in Europe within two years', while claiming that ISIS forces in Libya are now recruiting migrants to their terror cause with promises of 'white virgins'. Ahmed Gaddaf al-Dam, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's cousin and former intelligence official, has professed that 'not less than half a million' migrants will set sail from Libya to European shores this year. Among them, he claims, are thousands of terrorists, who will soon be running amok in Europe culminating in a terror strike on the same scale as the September 11th attacks. Mr Gaddaf al-Dam, one of several high-profile regime figures who fled to Egypt during the 2011 revolution, gave an interview to MailOnline as the North African state descends into ever-worsening chaos and bloodshed. Deadly clashes continue between Islamist militias and secular government forces led by a renegade general. Militants loyal to the Islamic State have made frightening gains in Libya in recent weeks, and are now in control of three towns including Sirte, Gaddafi's birthplace. Now Mr Gaddaf al-Dam, Gaddafi's one-time Special Envoy, is bidding to use the alarm over the rise of ISIS as a platform to make the dictator's name a powerful force again in Libyan and international diplomacy. And he even suggests talks, which he hopes to broker, should include ISIS. He said that he believes 'you will see not less than 500,000 migrants coming to Europe this year', adding alarmingly: 'There are many terrorists among them, between 10 and 50 in every thousand. They are going all throughout Europe. Within one year, two years, you will have another September 11.' While European authorities have acknowledged that they cannot rule out that there are some jihadis hidden among boatloads of immigrants, there is little evidence that the real threat comes from migrants. He explained: 'The Islamist groups are bringing them into the camps and turning them into soldiers. They give them money, tell them about Allah and heaven and the many white virgins waiting for you there.' Mr Gaddaf al-Dam also claims that militias loyal to ISIS in Libya are likely to be in possession of more than 6,000 barrels of uranium that was at one time under the guard of the government's army in the desert outside the south-western town of Sabha. ISIS are already known to have got their hands on mustard gas and deadly nerve agent sarin. Uranium ore or 'yellowcake' is the foundation material for making fuel for nuclear weapons. But yellowcake would require 'extensive processing' before it could be used for weapons purposes. However the uranium, which is estimated to be worth as much as $400million, could be sold to it to a rogue state such as North Korea to raise further funds for terrorism. Gaddaf al-Dam
  5. 5. said: 'The uranium I think they already have it, ISIS, because they control this territory. They are not stupid anymore. They know how to make money. They will try and sell it.' The whereabouts of the uranium remains a source of concern. Inspectors from the watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency were scheduled to visit in December 2013 to verify the size of the stockpile and 'conditions of storage' but it is unclear whether or not they were able to locate it. 'We are working to save Libya', he insists several times. 'If we don't do it today, tomorrow it may be too late.' In the only nod to the brutality with which his cousin ruled, he acknowledges that the Gaddafi administration 'made mistakes', but insists that Libya 'is now a thousand times worse'. 'We have to be part of the solution. People want us back', he said. A History of New Yorkers-Turned-Terrorists Since 9-11 By Irene Chidinma Nwoye Mon., Mar. 9 2015 Fighters belonging to the Islamic State group in Anbar, Iraq The three Brooklyn residents arrested in February for planning to join the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria are set to appear in court on March 11. The FBI says the Brooklyn trio — Akhror Saidakhmetov, 19; Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev, 24; and Abror Habibov, 30 — planned to join ISIS in Syria and had posted online messages about committing domestic acts of terror, including bombing Coney Island and shooting police officers. Juraboev and Saidakhmetov will be appearing in federal court in Brooklyn on March 11. And Habibov, the alleged financial sponsor of the plot to fly Juraboev and Saidakhmetov to Syria, waived a bail hearing on March 3 in Florida, where he was arrested. He is scheduled for a hearing on March 10 in Jacksonville to have him extradited to New York. If convicted of their charge of conspiracy to provide material support to a terrorist organization, the three men face up to fifteen years in prison. Saidakhmetov, Juraboev, and Habibov may be the first New Yorkers to be accused of working with — or attempting to work with — ISIS, but the city has a history of busting wannabe terrorists in the thirteen years since the 9-11 attacks. Here's a rundown of New Yorkers—turned-terrorists since 9-11: The Parachas In 2006, 25-year-old Brooklyn resident Uzair Paracha was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison after being convicted for helping an Al Qaeda operative enter the United States to commit a terrorist act. Paracha, a Pakistani national with permanent-resident-
  6. 6. alien status in the United States, enjoyed deep New York roots, including attending the Rainbow Montessori preschool in Queens before his family returned to Pakistan. His mother was a sociology graduate student at the New York University and his father, Saifullah Paracha, was a businessman who shuttled between Karachi and New York. Saifullah, a graduate of the New York Institute of Technology, was also accused of aiding Al Qaeda and conspiring to smuggle in explosives. He's currently being held at Guantánamo Bay. The Herald Square Station Bombing Plot In 2004, authorities arrested Queens resident and Pakistani national Shahawar Matin Siraj and James Elshafay, from Staten Island, for plotting to blow up the Herald Square subway station. According to prosecutors, the men wanted to avenge the mistreatment of detainees at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Unlike Siraj, who had been residing in the United States illegally for almost six years by the time of his arrest, Elshafay was a U.S.-born citizen who even attended Tottenville High School in Staten Island. He suffered from depression and schizophrenia. Osama Eldawoody, a 50-year-old Egyptian immigrant, who had been working as a paid police informant, foiled the men's plans. For cooperating with authorities after his arrest, Elshafay was sentenced to five years in prison, while Siraj got 30 years in a federal prison. The JFK Plan Airport cargo handler and Brooklyn resident Russell Defreitas masterminded a scheme with three other men to detonate the fuel storage tanks and supply lines for the John F. Kennedy Airport in 2006. The following year, Defreitas, a naturalized American citizen, was apprehended by authorities. The men had traveled to Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago several times before their arrest to seek the financial assistance of Trinidad-based extremist Islamic group Jamaat al Muslimeen. They had even discussed reaching out to an Al Qaeda explosives expert. Authorities planted an informant next to Defreitas who disclosed the men's plans. All three were extradited to the United States to stand trial. Defreitas was arrested in New York and received a life sentence in 2011 after being convicted on five counts of conspiracy, including conspiracy to attack a public transportation system. The LIRR Plot Long Islander Bryant Neal Vinas traveled to Pakistan in 2007 to fight against American forces in Afghanistan. He was later arrested by Pakistani forces in 2008 and transferred to FBI custody. Vinas was raised Catholic in Medford, New York, by his Argentinian mother and Peruvian father, but in 2004 he converted to Islam. Vinas was one of the many Westerners motivated to Islamic extremism by the teachings of Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. According to the NYPD's lists of known terrorist plots, in 2008, "Vinas spoke to Al Qaeda about targeting the Long Island Rail Road using a suitcase bomb that would be left in a car and set to detonate. He drew maps of Long Island and showed that all LIRR trains passed through one tunnel when entering Manhattan, suggesting that an explosion in the tunnel would cause the most damage." The revelation led authorities to issue a terror alert on November 25, 2008. The 31-year-old is currently being held by U.S. Marshals at an undisclosed location in New York. The Subway System Plot Queens residents Najibullah Zazi and Zarein Ahmedzay, of Afghan descent, and Bosnian Adis Medunjanin plotted to bomb the New York City subway system in September 2009, around the eighth anniversary of the 9-11 attacks. The trio had also been radicalized by the teachings of cleric Awlaki. Before the plot they received military training from high-ranking Al Qaeda operatives, who urged the men to return to the U.S. to carry out attacks. The FBI in collaboration with the NYPD received a tip that thwarted the plot. In 2012, Medunjanin was convicted of, among other charges, conspiring to use weapons of mass destruction and was sentenced to life in prison. His conspirators Zazi and Ahmedzay are awaiting sentencing. "We Will Blow Up a Synagogue in Manhattan" In April 2011, before an NYPD operation later that year foiled his plans, Algerian-born Queens resident Ahmed Ferhani
  7. 7. threatened to blow up synagogues and churches in Manhattan. He and an accomplice were arrested in May 2011 and Ferhani became the first terrorist convicted under New York State's anti-terrorism law. Like other terrorist recruits from the Big Apple, Ferhani sought to avenge the abuse of Muslims. He was sentenced in March 2013 to ten years in a state prison after he pleaded guilty in 2012 to terrorism-related charges. The Liar Native New Yorker and Staten Island resident Abdel Hameed Shehadeh traveled to Pakistan in 2008 with plans of joining the Taliban or Al Qaeda to wage a violent jihad against the U.S. military. Shehadeh was arrested in 2010 for lying to federal authorities about his real reason for traveling to Pakistan, after he purchased a one-way ticket to Islamabad in 2008. Pakistani officials, however, denied him entry into the country and Shehadeh returned to New York. He also created and ran websites that advocated jihad against the West and promoted the teachings of Awlaki and other Al Qaeda leaders. He was convicted in 2013 and was sentenced to thirteen years in prison. The Long Island Friends Two American citizens and Long Island residents were arrested in 2013 and pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to Al Qaeda. The friends, Marcos Alonso Zea and Justin Kaliebe, had sought to travel abroad to join terrorist groups and wage jihad. In 2011, Zea allegedly flew from John F. Kennedy Airport to London en route to Yemen, where he hoped to offer assistance to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. He was turned back to the U.S. by British customs agents. According to George Venizelos, then the assistant director of the FBI's New York office, when Zea's trip to Yemen failed, he allegedly decided to finance Kaliebe's terrorist ambitions. Kaliebe was arrested in January 2013 at JFK while trying to board a flight to Oman with the intent of reaching Yemen. Kaliebe pleaded guilty to terrorism-related charges and may face up to 30 years in prison. Zea is currently being prosecuted in the Eastern District of New York.
