Islamic Republic’s regional expansion raises concern in Jerusalem of Tehran’s efforts ‘to entrench itself militarily on Israel’s border’

BEIRUT (AP) — Thousands of Iranian-backed fighters in Syria’s central desert region are advancing east, bringing Tehran closer to its goal of securing a corridor from its border, through Iraq and all the way to the Mediterranean and providing it unhindered land access to its allies in Syria and Lebanon for the first time.

The land route would be the biggest prize yet for Iran in its involvement in Syria’s six-year-old civil war. Continue reading

U.S. intel official: ISIL determined to attack on U.S. soil this year

WARNING: Sick Islamic State terrorists could pose as MEDICAL WORKERS to attack HOSPITALS

Don’t think the same couldn’t happen in America. The bad guys have always plans such as this, which aren’t limited to hospitals. Kindergartens, universities, movie theaters, etc… are all targets by islamic terrorists. Thousands of terror cells are already in and awaiting the green light to strike where it hurts America the most, morally, socially and economically.

 

ISLAMIC State jihadis could impersonate firefighters and medical staff to stage horrifying attacks on hospitals, it has been claimed.

Belgian authorities fear the savage terror group could be planning a Paris-style massacre in hospitals in Brussels – and government ministers have warned emergency services that terrorists could slip in undetected by impersonating them.

Reports have suggested hospital chiefs have been advised to ensure uniforms cannot be stolen and to update emergency plans and lists of doctors and senior staff. Continue reading

ISIS TERROR WARNING: Britain NEXT to be ATTACKED by jihadists, supporters claim

BRITAIN is at risk from the next Islamic State attack, supporters of the evil terror group have warned in unconfirmed tweets.

They made the chilling threats on Twitter after at least 160 people were killed by a series of co-ordinated attacks on Paris last night.

After gloating about the horror that shocked the world, armchair jihadists tweeted that London could be next.

The terrifying armoury of ISIS: Jihadi group boasts tanks and jets at its disposal

DEADLY terror group Islamic State’s arsenal of weapons includes a fearsome array of tanks and heavy-duty war machinery.

A look at the terrifying cache of munitions the Islamist organisation controls reveals militants have a range of modern fighting tools – including US-made humvee four-wheel-drive vehicles – at their disposal.

Much of the equipment has been looted from Iraqi and Syrian troops as their depleted national armies are forced to retreat. Continue reading

Stolen uranium compounds not only dirty bomb ingredients within ISIS’ grasp, say experts

As also mentioned here last week.

Plenty of materials for a potential dirty bomb are likely scattered throughout the area of Iraq controlled by ISIS, and pulling off an attack that spreads even a minor amount of radiation could be a huge PR coup for the terror group, experts told FoxNews.com.

Last week, the Iraqi government in Baghdad warned the UN that ISIS operatives had stolen 88 pounds of uranium compounds from Mosul University. Even though many experts said the research materials were not enough to cause widespread harm, spreading fear is even more important to terrorists than a big body count, one terrorism expert said. And with ISIS in control of a huge swath of northern Iraq and parts of Syria that includes research labs, hospitals and industrial sites, ingredients for radiation-spreading bombs are within its grasp.

“Obtaining radiological material from places like universities or hospitals is relatively easy if you have the firepower, a chaotic situation and jihadists willing to sacrifice their health handling it,” said Ryan Mauro, national security analyst for The Clarion Project, a think tank that studies Islamic extremism. “We aren’t talking about producing a nuclear bomb; just combining an explosive with radioactive material.” Continue reading

Threat from Within — U.S. military braced for surge in Taliban ‘insider’ attacks after recent statement

Taliban insurgents recently vowed to carry out new “infiltration” attacks aimed at killing and demoralizing U.S., allied, and Afghan military forces as part of the spring military offensive, according to U.S. officials.

The expected increase in what the Pentagon calls “insider” attacks by Taliban sympathizers or infiltrators followed an April 27 statement by the Islamist terror group. Continue reading

Iranians prepare terror campaign inside U.S.

As has been mentioned here numerous times: America has been warned time and time again, yet chooses the path of complacency while simultaneously portraying preparedness that is nothing more than a false sense of security.

“The economy is just fine, the shopping malls are still open and the terrorist bad guys are ‘over there‘ in a far off land, therefore there is no need to be concerned. Anything about sleeper cells or America being attacked again is simply fear mongering.”

If so goes todays mentality, then tomorrow’s United States will go as well.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is alive and well in the U.S. and the country’s law enforcement officials ignore them at their peril, according to former U. S. Air Force officer Steven O’Hern.

O’Hern says that the Revolutionary Guard, long an influential factor in the radical Islamic regime in Iran, does most of its surveillance and intelligence gathering through its proxy force, Hezbollah, considered by many to be a terror group. Continue reading
