The Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Muslim American Society are each registering their outrage over reportedly being designated terrorist organizations by the United Arab Emirates.
The two American groups were listed alongside the Islamic State group, Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood branches, as well as European Muslim groups in Italy, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Finland, Britain’s Cordoba Foundation and the Muslim Association of Britain. The full list, numbering 83 groups, was approved by the UAE cabinet Saturday and was posted by the official news agency WAM.
CAIR described its inclusion on the terrorism list as “shocking and bizarre” and called on the UAE government to remove them.
“There is absolutely no factual basis for the inclusion [of] CAIR and other American and European civil rights and advocacy groups on this list,” CAIR said in a statement Sunday.
“Like the rest of the mainstream institutions representing the American Muslim community, CAIR’s advocacy model is the antithesis of the narrative of violent extremists,” the group said. “We call on the United Arab Emirates cabinet to review this list and remove organizations such as CAIR, the Muslim American Society and other civil society organizations that peacefully promote civil and democratic rights and that oppose terrorism whenever it occurs, wherever it occurs and whoever carries it out.”
CAIR said it recently joined other Muslim-American leaders to release an open letter in Arabic “refuting the ideology of the terrorist group ISIS and urging its supporters to repent and ‘return to the religion of mercy.’”
The Muslim American Society said in its own statement that it was “shocked” to learn of its inclusion.
“The Muslim American Society is a religious community service organization that serves people in the United States. We have no dealings with the United Arab Emirates, and hence are perplexed by this news,” the group said. “Before proceeding any further, we would first like to verify the accuracy of the news reports and receive an official response from the United Arab Emirates regarding the reports. We would also like to seek the help of our government to address this issue.”
CAIR was named by federal prosecutors in 2007 along with about 300 others as an“unindicted co-conspirator” in a Hamas funding case connected with the Holy Land Foundation trial. Hamas has been designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. government since 2007. BuzzFeed noted that a federal judge later ruled that the government should not have included CAIR as a co-conspirator list, and CAIR was never charged with any crime.
CAIR, an Islamic advocacy group, was one of the organizations that sponsored the first Muslim prayer service held at the Washington National Cathedral on Friday.
The Associated Press noted that the UAE’s decision to include the Muslim Brotherhood on its terrorist group list followed similar terrorism designations for the Muslim Brotherhood by Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

A group of about 20 nationalists attacked three U.S. sailors in Istanbul on Wednesday, hurling objects at them, chasing them and briefly putting a bag over one of the sailors’ heads.
The U.S. Navy acknowledged the incident, which was publicized in a video online. The attack underscores the volatility in Turkey, a longtime U.S. ally that increasingly is at odds with Washington on foreign policy, especially over how to handle the Islamic State militant group in neighboring Syria.
In the video, one of the Turks is seen saying the Americans looked like members of the U.S. Army. The Turks claimed to be members of the Turkey Youth Union, which is opposed to working with the United States and becoming members of the European Union.
“We define you as murderers, as killers… and we want you to get out of our land,” one man says, seconds before the attack ensues.
The Navy said the sailors were assigned to the USS Ross, a destroyer, and in Turkey for a scheduled port visit. They appeared to be in their late teens or early 20s. They were able to get away without suffering injuries and are back on the Ross, Navy officials said.
“The U.S. Navy is currently working with the Turkish National Police and U.S. Embassy staff to investigate this incident,” said a statement from U.S. Naval Forces Europe/Africa. “The U.S. Navy will continue to coordinate with Turkish authorities to review security procedures for future ship visits.”
In a series of tweets, the U.S. Embassy in Turkey blasted the attack, calling it appalling. The vast majority of Turks are against “an action that so disrespects Turkey’s reputation for hospitality.”
A Navy spokesman, Lt. Timothy Hawkins, said that the Ross already was scheduled to depart Istanbul on Thursday and that the attack had no effect on operations.
Navy Secretary Ray Mabus said in a Facebook post that he is certain the vast majority of Turkish people and the Ankara government do not condone the attack.
“We understand that local law enforcement have suspects in custody,” Mabus said. “We commend this swift action and are certain that those who did this will be held accountable.”

“We define you as murderers, as killers… and we want you to get out of our land” ??
Hmmm.. Well, now you know how WE feel!
WE, the American people, the Israeli people, the English people, the Indian people, the Australian people, the Canadian people, the German people, the Swiss people, the French people, etc..etc..etc..
WE define ALL of you UNINVITED Muslim Bastards as murderers, as beheaders, as child rapists and molesters and female subjugators… and we want you ALL to get the hell out of OUR LAND!
And one day you WILL be out of our land.
By boat or by box… you will be gone!
If you are wise, you will leave NOW on ‘your terms’…
Otherwise, it will be on OUR’S!

The suspect in the Oct. 23 hatchet attack on two New York City cops had been searching online for jihadist propaganda and foreign terror organizations — as well as information on martyrdom and suicide bombings — in the weeks leading up to the assault, according to a city counterterrorism bureau intelligence assessment obtained by Fox News.
While initial reporting from unnamed sources suggested Zale Thompson may have been motivated by anti-government or black power sentiments, the four-page document provides new details that speak to Thompson’s self-radicalization. They show his online obsession with the “message” of terror groups like Al Qaeda and the Islamic State.
The intelligence assessment, further, said he “may have held a long-standing interest in violent jihad.”
“A preliminary analysis by the NYPD of approximately 277 online search terms by Zale Thompson in the weeks leading up to the attack revealed multiple references to ‘jihadist’ materials,” the assessment states. “Thompson used internet search engines to query specific terms including but not limited to ‘lone wolf,’ ‘jihad,’ and ‘jihad against the police’.”
The investigation is ongoing, and the report says “there is no evidence that Thompson conspired with other individuals to carry out the attack” — but it adds that his Internet searches were focused on known terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda, its affiliate in Somalia known as al-Shabaab, and the Islamic State. It also documents 58 search terms from Thompson’s electronic records that range from “jihad against the infidels” to “fatwa against americans” to “death to America in Arabic.”
The search history with terms such as “is Saudi Arabia a member of the United Nations” and “Saudi Arabic 69th general assembly un” also suggests Thompson may have considered targeting the annual U.N. conference and Saudi dignitaries.
The intelligence assessment includes an evidence photo from the crime scene where Thomspon appeared to stalk the rookie cops, attacking them with the hatchet — before he was shot dead. A second ax and hunting knife from the suspect’s home were also pictured.
Officer Kenneth Healey, 25, suffered a severe head injury in the attack, and Officer Joseph Meeker, 24, was injured in the arm. Both are rookie officers.
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., current member of the House Intelligence Committee and a former chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, noted that NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said the attack was terrorism soon after it happened. King said the assessment was pulled together and shared with police across the country after a similar ax attack in Washington, D.C. He said the document shows “it was not just one deranged person, but he was obsessed with Islamic terrorism.”
“This was jihadist inspired. Plain and simple,” said Frank Cilluffo, associate vice president and director of the Homeland Security Policy Institute of George Washington University. “He had so many search terms in this respect, I think it would be very difficult to suggest that it’s anything but.”
The intelligence assessment says there is no known link between the New York attack and the one in Washington on Oct. 31 — where the suspect swung an ax into the window of a police cruiser — but suggests the pattern of attacks on military and law enforcement, including recently against Canadian soldiers, cannot be ignored.
“As I understand it, NYPD is already instituting new actions, and new steps where instead of patrolling alone, they are going to have group patrols, and stay together even, even simple measures such as having lunch. They are hoping that people will stick together, so you can have two eyes and ears on potential threat,” Cilluffo said.
King said ISIS is recruiting individuals on the margins of society. “It shows the real necessity of having surveillance in neighborhoods,” he said. “It may not have prevented this attack. But the best way for the police to find out in advance about these potential threats is through informants and people in the community.”

Rage Against the Regime: Outing the CIA (Special Report)
U.S. Navy Seal Robert O’Neill
by, Sydney Morning Herald
Muslim militants have threatened to kill a former US Navy SEAL who says he fired the fatal shot that killed Osama bin Laden in 2011.
Robert O’Neill, 38, told the Washington Post on Thursday he shot bin Laden in the forehead.
Jihadists have reportedly issued a death threat against him following the revelation.
In postings on Twitter and the al-Minbar Jihadi Media forum, pictures of O’Neill had been distributed and messages in Arabic and English urging revenge, said SITE, a group which monitors jihadist websites.
“One jihadist wrote in Arabic, for example, ‘We will send the picture to the lone wolves in America, this Robert O’Neill, who killed Sheikh Usama bin Laden…’,” SITE said.
Another posted in both languages said, “To our loved ones among the Muslims in the United States of America, this is your chance for Paradise, the width of which is the heavens and the earth,” SITE added.
The former commando said he decided to come forward ahead of planned media appearances next week when his identity was disclosed by a website operated by former SEALs.
The revelation was in protest at O’Neill’s decision to reveal his role in the raid on bin Laden’s hideout in the Pakistani garrison city of Abbottabad.
The highly decorated Montana native told the Post he was near the head of the column of US soldiers, adding that at least two other SEALs fired shots.
The newspaper said two SEAL team members had corroborated his identity.
O’Neill is set to appear in a documentary on the Fox network next week.
At bin Laden’s compound, O’Neill was located in the number two position for the attack.
Bin Laden briefly appeared at the door but the SEAL in front of O’Neill apparently missed his shot.
“I rolled past him into the room, just inside the doorway,” O’Neill said.
“There was bin Laden, standing there. He had his hands on a woman’s shoulders, pushing her ahead.”
O’Neill said he could clearly identify bin Laden through his night-vision scope, despite the darkness – and fired.
The onetime SEAL said it was clear bin Laden was dead as his skull was split.
O’Neill is the second member of the elite unit involved in the bin Laden raid to go public, in a move which has dismayed military brass and serving SEALS who maintain a fierce, Omerta-like code of silence.

Recent reports confirm that, Rabbi Yehuda Glick, an American-born activist is improving in his condition, following the recent assassination attempt on his life by a Palestinian Muslim terrorist. Just over a week ago, Rabbi Glick was shot 4 times in the chest at close range outside of the Menachem Begin Heritage Center.
A spokesperson for the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, Israel has confirmed that Rabbi Glick is in the process of being weaned from the respirator and he ‘..has begun to communicate with those around him, responding to questions by answering ‘yes’ and ‘no’..’ The weaning process which began 3 days ago, includes waking him slowly and gradually getting him to breathe on his own, without the assistance of the respirator. The hospital representative went on to state that Rabbi Glick is ‘..expected to be breathing on his own entirely within the next few days, as the rehabilitation process continues..’
Rabbi Yehuda Glick is best known for taking up the plight of the Jewish people worldwide, in their right to pray on Temple Mount, the holiest site in all of Judaism. The assassination attempt on his life occurred following a speech he had just given on this topic. The would-be assassin, a Palestinian Muslim by the name of Mu’ataz Hijazi, was later pronounced dead following a confrontation and subsequent shootout with Israeli Special Forces and Shin Bet.
- – -
We would like to take this opportunity to offer a very heartfelt ‘..thank you..’ to all of the medical staff of Shaare Zedek Medical Center that have been caring for Rabbi Glick. There are most definitely angels among us. Please keep them in your prayers, as we continue to pray for Rabbi Glick and his family. Let us also first, give praise and thanksgiving to the ‘..physician of all physicians and king of all kings..’ who is the true miracle worker and giver of life. May His will continue to be done.

Spanish intelligence has intercepted messages passed between jihadists online discussing the weaponisation of the deadly Ebola virus for use against the West, while a blackmailer in Prague has threatened to unleash the virus unless the Czech Republic pay him one million bitcoin, a volume of online currency worth over £200 million.
Rumours of Ebola as a weapon have long circulated among the international intelligence community, as speculation arose over the potential successes of the former Soviet Union’s extensive biological weapons programme in the last century. It is thought that at least one terrorist organisation, the Japanese Aum Shinrikyo cult has attempted to cultivate the Ebola for attacks. The cult killed thirteen on the Tokyo subway in 1995 with a release of potent nerve agent Sarin gas.
Although Aum Shinriyko and Islamic Fundementalists have an ideological reason for engaging in biological warfare, the communications received by the Czech government last week appear to have been entirely driven by a profit motive. The bitcoin demand, which is worth £210 million in fiat currency terms was demanded in three tranches, one payment on Monday this week, a second on Wednesday, and a third after the blackmailer handed the Ebola material to the government.
The deadline has now passed for the payments and the Czech government has no intentions to cave in. Responding to the communication, which stated: “If you don’t answer this letter, we will send press releases to media and inform people on social networks such as Twitter, Facebook and Youtube to let them know how negligent the Czech offices are”, a spokesman for the Czech authorities said the cold weather would probably stop the infection spreading far.
Although the demand is being investigated as a blackmail case rather than a terrorist threat, the investigation is being retarded by the highly sophisticated techniques used by the extorter. The bitcoin demand and encrypted message delivered by proxy means the true culprit may not be found. Should they be located, the Daily Mail reports the threats carry a jail sentence of up to 12 years in prison.

Could the recent outbreak of the ebola virus be the result of U.S. government testing?
Did you know…
The United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) located at Fort Detrick, Maryland has been conducting research into weaponizing ebola as an ‘offensive weapon’ in Sierra Leone and Liberia since 2006.
Would the U.S. government ever subject innocent, unsuspecting citizens to a known harmful toxin to further their objectives?
I could list 100 cases, although one should suffice…

According to reports out of the Quebec city of St. Jean sur Richelieu, a man went on a frenzied rampage targeting members of the military after he was heard speaking about the terrorist group Islamic State, also known as ISIS.
CJAD reported the man entered a Department of National Defense office late Monday morning and, prior to exiting, spoke to at least one individual inside about the Islamic extremist network. Upon leaving the military office, reports indicate he got into a vehicle and struck two soldiers, critically injuring one and leaving the other with less severe injuries.
After driving away from the scene, the man apparently lost control of his vehicle, which flipped several times and came to rest in a ditch. Police caught up with the suspect and fired on him, striking him at least five times. The unidentified man was initially hospitalized in critical condition. Subsequent reports indicate he later died from his injuries.
Local leaders are asking the community to refrain from categorizing the incident as a terror attack until an investigation is complete; however, speculation continues to abound that the motivation behind this hit-and-run was Islamic extremism.
Shortly after the suspect was shot, the matter was discussed before the House of Commons. So far, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has only confirmed that he is “aware of these reports”; and police have been similarly tight-lipped.
Lt. Guy Lapointe elaborated only as far as to say that “the theory that this is a deliberate act is part of what we’ll be looking at.”

Police opened an investigation Sunday after graffiti was found in the Temple Mount compound depicting a swastika as the equivalent of a Star of David.
The incident came on the heels of a call by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for Palestinians to defend the Temple Mount, the location of the al-Aqsa mosque and the site of heated clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces over the past several weeks.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said authorities had opened a probe into the incident after finding at least three instances of the graffiti daubed on the floor inside the holy site.
Pictures posted online by the Israeli news portal 0404 showed two different places where the symbols had been painted in blue, one on stairs leading to the Temple Mount and another in an unidentified location.
On Friday, Abbas called for Jews to be barred from the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism and home to a mosque and shrine revered by Muslims as well, and said Palestinians should defend the site.
“It is our sacred place, al-Aqsa [mosque] is ours, this Noble Sanctuary is ours. They have no right to go there and desecrate it,” Abbas said.
“That’s our job!”
To learn who these people are, what they are fighting for, and who funds them, PRESS TV goes deep into their camps and brings you face to face interviews and exclusive footage. Many of those who were initially infatuated by the group’s promise of justice seem to be horrified and utterly disillusioned today.
Everyone who is not us is the enemy and should be branded as infidel. This seems to be the prevailing ideology of the extreme Takfiri terrorists known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Their aim is said to be the establishment of an Islamic Caliphate. Shias, Christians, Sunnis, Yazidies, and whomsoever who dares to question them or raise his voice of dissent are persecuted under their highly distorted version of Islamic Sharia. Gruesome be-headings, crucifixions and mass executions are openly carried out under their iconic black flag which is more like a modern day equivalent of a Jolly Roger. At times, it seems like their victims are whoever who is unlucky enough to be in their path during their killing sprees. And yet they know how to manipulate social media and have succeeded in brainwashing some to join them in their “fight for justice”.
Deep Inside the Islamic State: Meeting ISIL (Documentary)
Muslims Attack Kurdish Citizens With Machetes and Knives in Hamburg
by, Soeren Kern | Gatestone Institute | h/t CAIR Exposed
“We are living in Hamburgistan.” — Daniel Abdin, imam of Hamburg’s Al-Nour Mosque.
One politician has been repeatedly threatened with beheading as the price to pay for leading a fundraising campaign to provide food and water for Kurds in northern Iraq.
“As a society we must ask ourselves: how can it be that people who live in Germany and… born and raised here, are supporters of a brutal, inhuman and fundamentalist group such as the IS and attack peaceful protestors with knives, sticks and machetes. Here in Germany, the IS threatens to become a refuge for frustrated young people….” —Claudia Roth, Vice-President, German Parliament.
“Under no circumstances should [politicians who receive death threats] give in and change their stance, otherwise the extremists will have achieved their objectives.” — Wolfgang Bosbach, CDU official.
Parts of downtown Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, resembled a war zone after hundreds of supporters of the jihadist group Islamic State [IS] engaged in bloody street clashes with ethnic Kurds.
The violence—which police say was as ferocious as anything seen in Germany in recent memory—is fuelling a sense of foreboding about the spillover effects of the fighting in Syria and Iraq.
Some analysts believe that rival Muslim groups in Germany are deliberately exploiting the ethnic and religious tensions in the Middle East to stir up trouble on the streets of Europe.
The unrest began on the evening of October 7, when around 400 Kurds gathered outside the Al-Nour mosque near the central train station in Hamburg’s St. George district to protest against IS attacks on the Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani.
According to police, the initially peaceful protest turned violent when the Kurds were confronted by a rival group of around 400 Salafists armed with baseball bats, brass knuckles, knives, machetes and metal rods used to hold meat in kebab restaurants.
In the melee that followed, more than a dozen people were injured, including one person who nearly had his leg chopped off by someone wielding a machete, and another person who was stabbed in the stomach with a kebab rod.
Some 1,300 police officers, brandishing batons and accompanied by water cannons, were deployed to halt the clashes, which lasted into the early morning hours of October 8. In the final tally, hundreds of weapons were seized and 22 people were arrested.

“I had the feeling that we are living in Hamburgistan,” the imam of the Al-Nour mosque, Daniel Abdin, told the German newsmagazine Der Spiegel. “The atmosphere was very, very explosive.”
Police said they were shocked by what they described as an unprecedented level of violence.
In an interview with the newspaper Passau Neue Presse, the chairman of the German Police Union, Rainer Wendt, reported that police in Hamburg “experienced life-threatening brute force” by perpetrators who were armed “to the teeth.” Wendt warned that the IS-Kurdish conflict is “threatening to unleash a proxy war on German soil.”
A police official in Hamburg, Gerhard Kirsch, said the level of the violence points to a new “dangerous dimension” that “we have so far not seen at other demonstrations.”
The chairman of the German Police Union in Hamburg, Joachim Lenders, described the viciousness as unprecedented. “The violence in the early hours of Wednesday was of a ruthless and inhuman brutality as I have rarely experienced,” he said, adding that without the timely deployment of the police there would almost certainly have been fatalities. Lenders added:
“If in the middle of Hamburg 800 hostile people are fighting each other with machetes, knives and iron rods, there must be consequences for the perpetrators. Politically motivated extremists and religious fanatics have brought a conflict to Hamburg that cannot be solved here.”
On the same day of the unrest in Hamburg, dozens of mostly Chechen Muslim immigrants clashed with Kurdish Yazidis—a non-Arab and non-Muslim minority that has been persecuted by IS—in Celle, a town in Lower Saxony that is home to more than 7,000 Yazidis. Police said the violence, in which nine people were injured, was fuelled via social media after radical Muslim preachers sent out a call to Islamists to confront the Yazidis.
The conflict in Celle was reminiscent of—but far more violent than—the Muslim-Yazidi clashes that occurred in the eastern Westphalian town of Herford in August.
“Solidarity with Kobani” demonstrations have also taken place in Munich—where protestors waving large Kurdish flags occupied the offices of the Christian Social Union [CSU], the Bavaria-based sister party to Germany’s ruling Christian Democratic Union party [CDU]—as well as in the western German cities of Berlin, Bremen, Göttingen, Hamm, Hannover, Kiel, Oldenburg and Stuttgart.
Germany is home to an estimated 4.3 million Muslims, one million Kurds and 60,000 Yazidis. According to the 2013 annual report (published in June 2014) of the German domestic intelligence agency, the Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz [BfV], Germany is also home to 30 active Islamist groups and 43,000 Islamists, including 950 members of the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah, 1,300 members of the Muslim Brotherhood and 5,500 Salafists.
Salafism is a radically anti-Western ideology that openly seeks to replace democracy in Germany (and in other parts of the West) with an Islamic government based on Sharia law.
Although Salafists make up only a fraction of the Muslims in Germany, authorities are increasingly concerned that many of those attracted to Salafi ideology are impressionable young Muslims who are susceptible to perpetrating terrorist acts in the name of Islam.
German authorities have faced criticism for being overly complacent concerning the rise of Salafism in the country. On October 2, for example, the German public broadcaster ARD revealed that German officials have for many years pursued a secret policy of encouraging German Islamists to travel abroad rather than to invest in counter-radicalization efforts. According to ARD, the general idea was that if German jihadists were intent on committing terrorist acts, it would be better that they do so somewhere else than inside Germany.
The overall aim was to “protect our population” by exporting the problem, the head of counter-terrorism for Bavarian Police, Ludwig Schierghofer, told ARD. The reasoning was “to bring those persons who pose a risk that they will commit terrorist attacks outside of the country,” he said. “If someone had become radicalized and wanted to leave, then the policy was to allow them to leave or even accelerate their departure by various means.”
An estimated 450 German Muslims have traveled to Syria and Iraq, and at least 100 are now believed to have returned to Germany.
Meanwhile, a growing number of German politicians are receiving death threats from German Salafists.
One such politician, Tobias Huch of the (classical liberal) Free Democratic Party [FDP], has been repeatedly threatened with beheading as the price to pay for leading a fundraising campaign to provide food and water for Kurds in northern Iraq.
“I am not afraid, but I have become more careful,” says Huch, who now receives police protection. He says he has altered his daily comings and goings in order to be less predictable. Among other lifestyle changes, he has cut out regular visits to restaurants, pubs and other public venues.
Another politician, Ismail Tipi of the ruling CDU, is paying the price for criticizing the rise of Salafism in Germany. “I receive threats almost every day,” Tipi says. “The death threats against me have no limits. The Salafists want to behead me, shoot me, stone me, execute me and they have many other death wishes for me.”
According to CDU official Wolfgang Bosbach, politicians who receive death threats should not allow themselves to be intimidated. “Under no circumstances should they give in and change their stance, otherwise the extremists will have achieved their objectives.”
The head of the FDP, Christian Lindner agrees. “It is unacceptable for Liberals to allow religious extremists to take an ax to the central values of our constitution. We will not give in to threats and intimidation, rather we will demand the determined reaction of the rule of law.”
By contrast, the Vice President of the German Parliament, Claudia Roth of the Green Party, believes the growing radicalization of Muslims in Germany points to problems in German society. In an interview with the newspaper Die Welt, Roth said:
“The violent clashes between Kurdish and Islamist groups in German cities and on German streets refer more to internal German problems than the situation in northern Syria and northern Iraq.
“As a society we must ask ourselves: how can it be that people who live in Germany and in large part are born and raised here, are supporters of a brutal, inhuman and fundamentalist terror group such as the IS and attack peaceful protestors with knives, sticks and machetes. Here in Germany, the IS threatens to become a refuge for frustrated young people who lack future prospects.”
While politicians debate causes and solutions to the problem of radical Islam, police throughout Germany remain on alert for more violence.
Editorial Preface: The book referenced herein, ‘The Management of Savagery’ has been called ‘..the blueprint for the destruction of America..’ – This is a *MUST READ* and I am providing a link to this book at the bottom of this article.
Written by influential jihadi Abu Bakr Naji
Outlines the Plan to infiltrate US and British Military, Police Forces and Government Agencies for eventual subversion
It has been carefully studied by the terrorist commanders in Syria and Iraq
Reveals ISIS intention to target tourists at locations across Islamic world
Suggests method to murder hostages to maximize shock value in the West
by, Mark Nicol | Daily Mail Online
Islamic fanatics are planning to infiltrate Britain’s Army and police forces to carry out brutal attacks, a chilling manifesto for terror used by Islamic State (ISIS) reveals.
The jihadi manual explains how the atrocities committed in the Middle East – including the brutal murders of British hostages David Haines and Alan Henning – are part of a wider strategy that includes plans to wreak mayhem in the UK.
The development comes after security sources revealed yesterday that thousands of terror suspects are being monitored in the UK. The Association of Chief Police Officers has also warned police officers about their personal safety in light of the threat from ISIS.
Neither the Metropolitan Police nor the Ministry of Defence were willing last night to discuss the security procedures in place.
The 268-page terrorism guide called The Management Of Savagery reveals IS’s intention to:
Target tourists at locations across the Islamic world
Exploit the propaganda value of targeting Western journalists, and to try to capture oil workers
Strike the same strategic targets repeatedly in a bid to expose weaknesses in Western security.
The handbook also revealed that infiltration operations have been going on for years – meaning that a sleeper cell may already have get inside the MoD or a police force.
Written by influential jihadi Abu Bakr Naji, the guide has been carefully studied by the terrorist commanders in Syria and Iraq, who he tells: ‘Our battle is long and still in its beginning… However, its length provides an opportunity for infiltrating the adversaries. [We] should infiltrate the police forces, the armies, private security companies, sensitive civil institutions.’
He added that there were ‘exuberant youth in large numbers seeking jihad. Their desire for martyrdom indicates a proper condition of faith; all that is required is instructional polishing within the movement. It is possible to divert some of them to work in the security apparatus for infiltrating institutions.’
The template for terrorism states that the method chosen to kill hostages should maximise shock value in the West.
In a section titled Blazing Battle, Bakr Naji writes: ‘We must make this battle very violent, such that death is a heartbeat away, so that the two groups will realise that entering this battle will frequently lead to death.
‘The increase in savagery is not the worst thing that can happen now. Rather, the most abominable of the levels of savagery is [still] less than stability under the order of unbelief. Our enemies will not be merciful to us if they seize us. Thus, it behoves us to make them think one thousand times before attacking us.
‘The policy of violence must also be followed such that if the demands are not met, the hostages should be liquidated in a terrifying manner, which will send fear into the hearts of the enemy and his supporters.’
Experts said last night that the Management Of Savagery, which was apparently first published in 2004, is a ‘relevant document’ and that the actions it expects jihadis to follow are realistic.
‘Everything in the book is possible,’ said Afzal Ashraf, an IS expert at the Royal United Services Institute in London. ‘But obviously they would find it more difficult to infiltrate the Army and police in Britain than they found in Iraq, where much of these institutions simply morphed into IS.
‘The Management Of Savagery is a book for IS’s thinkers but less so the doers. Islamic State has also miscalculated – it thought that extreme violence would deter the West. In fact IS’s enemies have been emboldened to take action.’
The Management Of Savagery claims that the overwhelming military superiority of the United States and the UK has no value without the cohesion of each society and the support for action in the region.
As IS are convinced that this cohesion does not exist, they believe they can persuade Western powers to retreat if they show how they are prepared to use the most gruesome tactics.
The book says: ‘If the number of Americans killed is one tenth of the number of Russians killed in Afghanistan [around 14,000 during its occupation in the 1980s], they will flee… They have reached a stage of effeminacy which made them unable to sustain battles for a long period of time and they compensate for this with a deceptive media halo.’
Bakr Naji asks also jihadis to target oilfields, sea and airports, tourist facilities and banking and financial services. He envisages ‘a very long war,’ advising commanders to spread small numbers of their forces across a large area of the world.
Bakr mocks the West’s use of air strikes given the mobility of IS and the likelihood that these attacks will inspire local uprisings.
He identifies other Muslim countries that should be the next to be conquered by fundamentalists, including Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Yemen, Turkey, Jordan, Libya, Tunisia and Morocco.
