BEIRUT – Pakistan may have transferred nuclear weapons to the chief bankroller of its development program, Saudi Arabia, as far back as 2004, according to a then-U.S. government official who received the revelation in a Pakistani intelligence briefing at the time, says a report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

Larry Werline, in a little-noticed report in Blackwater Tactical Weekly last June, said the transfer was revealed in a briefing that Pakistani Inter-Service Directorate, or ISI, officials gave him and other U.S. experts when relations between the United States and Pakistan were on a far better political and diplomatic footing.

Werline said that it was unusual that the intelligence service would oversee Pakistan’s nuclear program. Nonetheless, the high-ranking ISI briefers told of the increasing cooperation Pakistan was receiving at the time from China.

Chinese assistance included advanced production of lighter plutonium warheads for miniaturization to fit on Chinese missiles, based on technology, Werline said, that was stolen from U.S. and British work.

Essentially, the result of such work is weapons, with plutonium, that are lighter and have a higher explosive yield than weapons based on enriched uranium.

Sources have told WND/G2Bulletin that Saudi Arabia financed Pakistan’s nuclear weapons program and that even now, given the increasing Islamist threat in Pakistan, Islamabad may have decided to store some of its nuclear weapons in Saudi Arabia for safe keeping.

The ISI briefings took place in Pakistan in November 2004. The series of briefings over a three-day period were by ISI officials who at one time were senior Pakistani military officers.

Attending the briefings were scientists from the U.S. and Britain. One of the scientists, Werline said, was from the U.S. Department of Energy.

The briefings pointed out that ISI was in exclusive control of the country’s nuclear arsenal, and security forces were “recklessly moving nuclear warheads” around the country, Werline said.

Pakistan’s ISI is known for having created the Afghanistan Taliban and other Islamist militant jihadist groups, such as the Lashkar-e-Taiba, or LeT, among others, to act as proxies for the Pakistani military to launch attacks against India, which is Pakistan’s arch-enemy even until this day.

The LeT was responsible for a series of attacks in Mumbai, India, on Nov. 28, 2008, that killed 164 people and wounded some 308.

The briefing also included details of a Pakistani nuclear scientist’s visit to Afghanistan to brief then-al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in the late 1990s when the Afghan government then was under the control of the Taliban.

The briefing to bin Laden “was orchestrated, planned and executed by Pakistan’s ISI,” Werline said.

Muslim Brotherhood Mobilizes for Hamas

Muslim Brotherhood Mobilizes for Hamas

Israel has finally struck back against the terrorist enclave of Gaza after having 120 rockets fired at it since Saturday and over 700 this year alone. For now, the Obama administration is rhetorically supporting Israel, but the Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt is doubling down on its support for Hamas, Gaza’s ruling terrorist organization, and has withdrawn its ambassador to Israel. U.S.-based Islamists and their non-Muslim allies can be counted on in the ensuing days to pressure the administration to throw Israel under the bus in favor of the Islamist rulers of Egypt. If Egypt takes action, the administration will have to choose between its relationship with Israel or its relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood. There is no middle ground to straddle.

The Israeli Defense Forces struck 100 terrorist targets, and the Iron Dome missile defense system took out 28 rockets before they landed in Israel. The campaign began with a precision strike on a car carrying Hamas military chief Ahmad Jabari, the mastermind of the 2006 kidnapping of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit. Video of the strike shows it was designed to minimize civilian casualties. The IDF tweeted, “We recommend that no Hamas operatives, whether low level or senior leader, show their faces above ground in the days ahead.” Israel is also threatening a ground operation into the Gaza Strip.

Hamas says the initial strike “opened the gates of hell” and it will fight back. With about 35,000 fighters, that’s no idle threat. Senior Hamas leaders say they are considering firing long-range rockets at Rishon LeZion, a city 7 miles from Tel Aviv. They are also contemplating carrying out suicide bombings and assassinations and are in talks with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and other Gaza-based terrorists like the Popular Resistance Committees and Palestinian Islamic Jihad about their response. The involvement of the latter is significant because its alliance with Iran remains solid. The relationship between Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran has been strained because they are on opposite sides in Syria.

Egypt has withdrawn its ambassador to Israel. The Muslim Brotherhood warns that Israel will not go unchallenged like it did during Operation Cast Lead in 2009. It promises “swift Arab and international action to stop the massacres”—massacres that never happened. The Brotherhood said the situation is different now because of the Arab Spring and Egypt “will not allow the Palestinians to be subjected to Israeli aggression, as in the past.”

Egyptian President Morsi will be under increasing pressure to take action and its political benefits will be tempting. The Brotherhood’s popularity in Egypt is declining but a new poll shows that 77% of the public favor dissolving the peace treaty with Israel, up from under 25% about three years ago.

Opponents of Israel will accuse it of destroying the non-existent peace process. On the contrary, the Israeli strikes, especially the one on Jabari, are necessary for progress towards peace to happen. Hamas is committed to the destruction of Israel and in September 2010, Jabari threatened to torpedo peace talks by increasing attacks. The Hamas charter even says, “The time will not come until the Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!”

The political pressure on President Obama to demand a ceasefire will grow quickly. Anti-Israel forces on the left will make their voices heard. Muslim-Americans were a part of the coalition that won him re-election with over 85% voting for him, according to a survey by the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Anti-Israel advisors to the administration, especially those with Islamist ties, will argue that the fighting is counter-productive. Already, Mohamed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Committee, is tweeting that Israel’s military tactics don’t work and it must “elect a peacemaker like Sadat.”

The Islamist networks in the U.S. will use their massive organizational capabilities to demand U.S. pressure on Israel, and they’ll make good use of their interfaith allies.

American Muslims for Palestine, an Islamist group that meets with State Department officials, quickly condemned Israel and demanded that the U.S. cut off aid. Its statement did not even mention the hundreds of rockets fired into Israel. It accused Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu of waging war for political gain ahead of his country’s January 22 election. The theme echoed the Brotherhood, which lashed out at “The Zionist war that is operating under electoral calculations for personal gain…”

The U.S.-based Islamists will undoubtedly use the American Muslims for Palestine conference on November 22-25 in Oak Brook Hills, Illinois to mobilize supporters against the Obama administration’s stance. A second blockbuster Islamist event is being held on December 21-25 in Chicago, the 11th annual Muslim American Society-Islamic Circle of North America convention. The power of these groups, especially when they coordinate, cannot be discounted.

The situation will dramatically escalate if the Palestinian Authority asks the United Nations to recognize it as a nonmember observer state. The Israeli Foreign Ministry has written a draft proposal to recognize a provisional Palestinian state with temporary borders if it abandons this course. If it does not, a Foreign Minister position paper argues for toppling Palestinian President Abbas and dismantling the Palestinian Authority.

The Islamists in the U.S. and their anti-Israel allies are about to move full force. President Obama said in March that the U.S. will “always have Israel’s back.” To honor that commitment, he will have to stand up to the Islamist network and international community. If Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood do indeed take action, he will have to abandon his faulty hope of an accommodation with them.

We’ve been told to ignore the fiery rhetoric of the Muslim Brotherhood because they are a “moderate” force. We’ve been told that the administration is a stalwart friend of Israel. Those two reassurances are about to be tested.

Guess how many Islamic terror attacks since 9/11

Astonishing rampage in name of ‘religion of peace’

911-world-trade-center

A little less than every five hours, somewhere around the world a Muslim is carrying out a fatal jihadist attack.

These are not the regular beatings and vandalism against Christians, Hindus and Buddhists but religion-oriented attacks in which someone dies at the hand of a member of the”religion of peace.”

A website called “The Religion of Peace” has listed more than 20,000 such fatal attacks since Sept. 11, 2001.

As of today, the total was 20,022. The 20,000th came a few days ago when a Jewish woman was cut in pieces in Iran by religious radicals “intent on expanding a mosque.”

Some 1,800 deadly Muslim terror attacks happen each year, amounting to about 150 a month and five a day.

The purpose of the website, according to operator Glen Roberts, a pseudonym, is to put the level of violence being inflicted by Muslims in perspective.

“I started watching [the Council on American-Islamic Relations] in the months after 9/11,” said Roberts, “and I was astonished by the self-absorption. Each day people are maimed and killed explicitly in the name of Islam while this organization complains about headscarves and hurt feelings.

“I thought,” he said, “that maybe if I started documenting the violence, it would inspire a sense of moral perspective on their part.

“I was wrong, of course.”

He said he monitors acts of Muslim violence from a range of news sources that are reliable, when “it can be reasonably inferred that the perpetrator was motivated to some degree by their Islamic faith.”

“I do not post anything that I believe to be false,” he said. ” … This is not to say that mistakes haven’t been made, but they are unintentional and relatively rare.”

Get the “Obsession” DVD that draws back the veil on radical Islam

Fatal attacks that are reported to him only are posted when they can be verified with a reference to a news sources that he would consider reliable.

He said while he’s not been able to convince Muslims that their faith is violent, he hopes others take notice.

“Critics seem to assume that I’m trying to convince others that they are in mortal danger or that Muslims are bad people because they are Muslim. This is not true, of course,” he told WND.

“The evidence presented by TheReligionofPeace.com is meant to drive home the message that Islam is not like other religion,” he said. “It is openly supremacist and more vulnerable to violent interpretations. When one religion inspires over 1,500 faith-motivated acts of violence each year while other religions contribute practically none, then it should be obvious that there are unique problems – and it should be OK to say so.”

He wrote that Islam continues to be “an open threat” to Western liberal values, including freedom of conscience.

“There is already pressure against free speech rights, particularly in Europe. We should be highly concerned about the logical path of the current trend regardless of whether or not the full consequences of Muslim immigration and deference to the increasing volume of Muslim demand will be experienced in our lifetime,” he said.

“Judging by the one-way flow of immigration, even Muslims find Islamic countries less livable. What sense does it make to continue importing and catering to an ideology that doesn’t work elsewhere – particularly when Islamic immigrants as a group are the most notoriously resistant to integration and acceptance of Western values?”

He said Muslims in the West who say that Islam is a religion of peace are generally sincere.

“They want to believe that their religion is superior, which wouldn’t be the case if it brought violence instead of peace,” he said. “Therefore, they convince themselves and others that Islam is really just the Judeo-Christian value system an Arabic vocabulary.”

He said the “far less pleasant reality is that those who want to believe in ‘peaceful Islam’ have a lot more of Islam to ignore than do the jihadis.”

Roberts wrote: “On a week in which two suicide bombers slaughtered over 54 Christian and Druze and Sunni extremists massacred nearly 200 Shiites in Iraq, TROP recorded our 20,000th Islamic terror attack since 9/11. It happened to be the stabbing and dismemberment of a Jewish woman in her Iranian home by religious radicals intent on expanding a mosque.”

A UPI report explained the Jewish woman was stabbed to death and her family blamed her death on a religious motivation.

The victim, identified in the report as just Tuba N., was attacked allegedly by her Muslim neighbors after they had been trying to drive her family from their home and confiscate the property.

“Thugs broke into her home, tied up her two sisters who were living with her, and repeatedly stabbed her to death,” said the report.

A list of headlines on the site was equally thought-provoking. The site listed a musician in Mali who was ordered into silence on the threat of having her tongue cut out, a teen in India who was found with chains around his hands and feet who claimed he had been chained after trying to leave a Muslim madrassa.

Then there was the Australian stabbed for “insulting the prophet,” advocacy for child marriages, the massacre of 10 Christians, a 15-year-old killed for dating a boy, a tailor now dead for making “inappropriate” women’s clothes and a gang-rape and murder.

The site explains the Quran has at least 109 verses that “call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule.”

“Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding.”

The site continues: “Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence, the verses of violence in the Quran are mostly open-ended, meaning that they are not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding text. They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in the Quran.”

One verse, for example, states, “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah.”

The site says there are 10 reasons Islam is not a “religion of peace.” One is the thousands of terror acts committed in the name of Islam, while acts committed in the names of other religions have been minimal. More people are killed by Muslim terrorists each year than in all 350 years of the Spanish Inquisition. The daily Muslim terror toll is more than the Ku Klux Klan killed in 50 years.

Muhammad, meanwhile, “had people killed for insulting him or for criticizing his religion,” the site explains.

“Muhammad inspired his men to war with the basest of motives, using captured loot, sex and a gluttonous paradise as incentives. He beheaded captives, enslaved children and raped women captured in battle.

“Muslims continued their jihad against other religions for 1400 years, checked only by the ability of non-Muslims to defend themselves. To this day, not a week goes by that Islamic fundamentalists do not attempt to kill Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists explicitly in the name of Allah,” the site explains.

“Islam spreads like a virus. It radiates from Muslim countries that are too diseased to support it and into healthy systems that are that way because they have had the luxury of developing apart from Islam. Once in the host system, the Islam virus uses the existing machinery to make replicas of itself. Over time, the host makes unilateral concessions to the religion, feeding and appeasing it in the vain hope that this supremacist ideology can be tamed,” the site warns.

“In a matter of time, the entire system groans to an agonizing death and assumes the condition of the diseased nations from which Muslims originally fled.”

WND previously reported Roberts received an email threatening: “We will kill you. Like this,” referring to an attached photograph of a man who had been beheaded, his body resting chest down on grass and his lifeless head placed in the middle of his back. Another photograph showed a bloody knife.

The website notes attacks have been documented in the U.S., Iraq, India, Sudan, Algeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Israel, Russia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Nigeria, England, Thailand, Spain, Egypt, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, Denmark, Germany, Canada and more than 60 other nations

In one recent week, Nov. 24-30, there were 53 jihad attacks resulting in 272 dead bodies and 743 with injuries.

Gaza Cease-Fire Suggests Muslim Strategy

Gaza cease-fire suggests Muslim strategy

Analyst says Brotherhood wants uninterrupted term in power

BEIRUT – The recent cease-fire enacted between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip has begun to raise questions whether there is a larger strategy under way by the worldwide organization of the Muslim Brotherhood and its Egyptian and Palestinian branches, according to a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

Middle East analyst Ibrahim al-Amin, who also is editor-in-chief of the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar, said that peace between Israel and Hamas was essential so that the Muslim Brotherhood could focus on governance for the next six years unencumbered with other issues.

“Leaks from internal discussions by the worldwide MB (Muslim Brotherhood) leadership, described as the most important ever held, indicated a decision was made to give absolute priority at present to consolidating Islamist rule in some countries and acquiring power in others, and to avoid antagonizing foreign powers in the process,” he said.

“It has been widely said that the MB want a full term in power, meaning between four and six years, in which no other issue would be allowed to preoccupy them,” he said. “The most viable way of ensuring that with regard to Palestine is through a long-term truce between Hamas and Israel.”

The Egyptian presidency under Mohamed Morsi, the first Brotherhood-ruled Arab country, and Hamas have been tested, and survived. That has raised questions by al-Amin and other regional analysts whether the Israeli attacks on the Hamas leadership that killed its military chief, Ahmad al-Jaabari, were meant to blunt the Brotherhood’s influence throughout the Arab world.

The rise of the Brotherhood in its capacity of having one of its own now president of Egypt suggests that the Palestinians are becoming more of a force to be reckoned with, as demonstrated by Hamas’ response to repeated Israeli air attacks.

At the same time, Hamas’ new claim to fame has emboldened it now to stand up even more to the Israelis to the point, as reflected recently by Osama Hamdan, the senior Hamas representative here in Beirut, when he said: “We are entering the phase of the liberation of Palestine…the notion of Return: The return of the refugees to the homeland and the return of the Israelis to the countries from which they came.”

Observers say that this reflects a renewed militancy that could ultimately put it in conflict with the Brotherhood, to which Hamas belongs, and its overall strategic goals. In negotiating the immediate cease-fire between Israel and Hamas, Morsi had to walk a fine line of showing backing for the Hamas but at the same time giving a nod to the West and its demands.

Morsi, now as president of Egypt and no longer just the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, had to show more of a compromise, which observers believe may have upset some of the more militant elements of Hamas.

Al-Amin points out that this then has set up a real challenge for the Hamas leadership.

“If it opts to go along with the line of the worldwide MB, it will court an explosion within its own ranks,” he said. “This is a serious prospect.

“It has been raised in internal discussions which showed that differences between Hamas’ various factions are not superficial, with the military wing – and Jaabari in particular – opposed to any truce with the enemy,” he said. “This could lead to a major crisis for the resistance in Palestine.”
