A senior figure in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Mujtabi Du Al-Nour, threatened on Saturday that Iran will destroy Tel Aviv in ten minutes if Israel “makes a mistake” and strikes the Islamic regime’s nuclear facilities.

Al-Nour, who is a representative of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in a talk with journalists responded to Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman’s (Yisrael Beytenu) comments from Friday, when he said Israel should stop talking and start acting by striking the facilities said to be developing nuclear weapons.

The Islamic State terror group is recruiting in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan said Thursday.

“We are seeing reports of some recruiting,” said Gen. John Campbell, commander of the Resolute Support mission, during an interview with Army Times. “There have been some night letter drops, there have been reports of people trying to recruit both in Afghanistan and Pakistan, quite frankly.” Continue reading

U.S. exercises aim to prevent another Benghazi; more Marines deployed to regional embassies

WASHINGTON — The United States has reported military exercises to stop an Al Qaida attack in North Africa.

Officials said the military and State Department conducted a series of drills to ensure rapid response to any Al Qaida attack on U.S. facilities in North Africa. They said the exercises stemmed from the lessons learned from the Ansar Al Sharia attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in 2012, in which four people including ambassador Chris Stevens, was killed.

“We think we have developed an improved way to execute the indications and warnings with our interagency partners to ensure that we can move and reposition closer,” U.S. Africa Command chief Gen. David Rodriguez said.

In a briefing on Dec. 3, Rodriguez reviewed training for a rapid-response team comprised of the U.S. Marine Corps. The general said several so-called FAST teams from the Marines and Special Operations Command were on alert in NATO facilities in southern Europe as well as Djibouti. Continue reading

Covering Up Islamic Terrorism for Fun and Profit

If the weather is too hot or too cold, if there is a natural disaster, if a plane crashes, if crime increases, if crime decreases, if the Ebola virus rampages across of Africa or stays home to read a good book instead, if the price of coffee goes up or if a war breaks out… it will eventually be connected to Global Warming.
Even the rise of ISIS has been blamed not on the Koran, but on Global Warming.
clip_image002Meanwhile a Muslim terrorist can blow himself up at Ground Zero on September 11 while screaming, “I am doing this because I am a Muslim and I hate you all” and those same experts will tell us that it had nothing to do with Islam, but it was caused by the impact of Global Warming on the molecules of his brain.
It’s all a matter of how you connect the dots.
Democrats think that Global Warming is a bigger threat to America than Al Qaeda. That’s the profitable notion that Al Gore has been selling for some time. When ISIS began making headlines, lefty publications scurried to explain how ISIS had been caused by Global Warming. If you can’t get rid of ISIS, you can always promise to make it go away with another few billion for Bay Area Green Tech liberal donors.
That’s why Homeland Security is focusing on Global Warming. Why bother with Islam when the root cause of Islamic terrorism turns out to be neither Islam nor terrorism, but your failure to buy recycled toilet paper and pay much higher prices for energy. Instead of droning ISIS, we will drone on about sustainable sustainability and how eagles would rather be killed by wind turbines than by oil spills.
