Senior Saudi prince lightly injured in suicide attack

SNIPPET: "RIYADH: A suicide bomber lightly wounded a senior prince largely credited for Saudi Arabia's anti-terrorism campaign when he blew himself up just before going into a gathering of well-wishers for the Muslim holy month of Ramazan, the state news agency said Friday.

It was the first known assassination attempt against a member of the royal family since Saudi Arabia began its crackdown on al-Qaeda affiliated militants eight years ago following the September 11 terror attacks in the United States."

SNIPPET: "It said the prince, who is the son of Interior Minister Prince Nayef, was discharged from the hospital and nobody else was seriously injured.

The Interior Ministry has spearheaded the kingdom's aggressive campaign against terrorism, one that has intensified since militants first struck in the kingdom in May 2003. The country is the birthplace of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and was home to 15 of the 19 September 11 hijackers.

On August 19, authorities announced the arrest of 44 suspected militants with al-Qaeda links in a yearlong sweep that also uncovered dozens of machine guns and electronic circuits for bombs."

You do realize the bastards tried to kill him because he has been particularly aggressive on al-Qaeda with some success? Lots of arrests and sweeps even in the last two or three weeks. Qaida attacks in Saudi have gone way done...and the bad guys dont like it one bit. Looks like that almost got that guy (anti-terrorist chief).

Any thing he might have done was for one reason. To protect the house of Saud.

Wonder if O will follow in Saddam Hussein’s tradition of sending money to the families of suicide bombers.

And you had better hope the House of Saud is protected. The alternative is exactly what Obama is hoping and praying for.

Think before you spew.

This guy was pure scum.

Mahfouz sued Rachel Ehrenfeld for libel after she wrote in her book, Funding Evil, that he was involved in funding Hamas and al Qaeda.

But he didn't sue her in the United States where she lives and her book is published. He instead took advantage of British libel laws that place the burden of the proof on the defendant, rather than the plantiff, and sued her in Britian. Neither of them actually reside there. But his lawyers claimed because her book is sold via online retailers like Amazon.com, and that meant people in Britian could special order them, the case was valid. Britians libel laws have given rise to a phenomenon of wealthy "libel tourists" or "libel terrorists", who sue there on the slimmest British connection in order to ensure a favorable ruling.

Bin Mahfouz's legal team made sure the case was heard by a Judge David Eady, who had a long history of strange rulings that ran in favor of censorship and against free speech. In May 2005, Justice Eady ruled Ehrenfeld had to apologize to bin Mahfouz and pay over $225,000. The fine remains uncollected and she's refused to apologize. But just like Mike Savage, she has been banned from being able to travel to Britian, and her writing and research work has been banned.

Ehrenfeld countersued in NY, asking the 2nd court of appeals for declaration that the British judgement was contrary to the 1st Admendment and hence unenforceable on a U.S. Citizen. The court agreed. In 2008, this case paved the way for the "Libel Terrorism Protection Act" which offers New Yorkers greater protection against libel judgements in countries whose laws are inconsistent with the freedom of speech granted by the US Constitution.

And Ehrenfeld wasn't the only victim. In 2007, he sued the Columbia Press that examined the alleged money trail between him and jihadists: Alms for Jihad: Charity and Terrorism in the Islamic World by J. Millard Burr and Robert O. Collins. Columbia turned around and threw the authors under the bus and ordered bookstores to return their copies and libaries to remove the book from their shelves.

But research found that on a Bin Mahfouz information website bankrolled by himself, that bin Mohfouz was a "principle donor" in the Mawafaq "Blessed Relief" foundation, an Islamic Charity that the US treasury department identified in 2001 as "an al Qaeda front that receives funding from wealthy Saudi businessmen."

In a 2001 note that was made public in June 2007, France's foreign intelligence agency said that in 1996, bin Mahfouz was known as one of the architects of a banking scheme constructed for the benefit of Osama bin Laden.

The report claims that both the U.S. and British intelligence services knew this.

Imagine how this would of affected the ruling of the Ehrenfeld case or the actions of the Columbia Press if this information had been made public sooner.

Personally I'll be quite pleased when the entire House of Saud is ground into pig food and their entire sh**** country is trod under our infidel boots.

The Saudis are NOT our allies.

After we wipe out AQ they should be our next target.

By BILL ROGGIO

SNIPPET: “In February 2009, Asari was the eighth al Qaeda operative listed on Saudi Arabia’s list of 85 most wanted terrorists. The Saudi government described Asiri as an “expert in explosives and poison.”

Asiri has also begun to release propaganda for AQAP. In December 2010, Asiri announced the death of Abu Hammam Qahtani, the founder of Sada al Malahim, AQAP’s print magazine.”

“Saudi suspect in underwear bomb plots trained others, U.S. says”

By Phil Stewart
ASPEN, Colo. | Sat Jul 20, 2013 8:25am IST
(Reuters) -

SNIPPET: “”There is intelligence that he has unfortunately trained others and there’s a lot of effort to identify those folks,” Pistole told the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado.

Asked by Reuters afterward about the nature of that intelligence, Pistole said Asiri was believed to have trained a small number of people. He added that the intelligence was “credible.”

Believed to be in his early 30s, Asiri, who survived a U.S. drone missile attack in 2011, has drawn scrutiny for his skill at fashioning hard-to-detect bombs and hiding them in clothing or equipment.”

“Al Qaeda Threat: Officials Fear ‘Ingenious’ Liquid Explosive”

By RHONDA SCHWARTZ (@rhondaABC) and JAMES GORDON MEEK (@meekwire)
Aug 5, 2013, 8:57 PM

SNIPPET: “The officials said the new technique is believed to have been developed by the Yemen-based al Qaeda affiliate al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), home to notorious alleged bomb maker Ibrahim al-Asiri. Al-Asiri is suspected of being the mastermind behind several devious explosive devices including the underwear bomb and surgically implanted body bombs.

Al-Asiri was listed today among Yemen’s 25 top terrorists, who the Yemeni government said were planning to carry out operations in the capital, Sana’a. The Yemeni government is offering 5 million Yemeni rials, or $23,000, for information leading to the capture of any of the terrorists.”

SNIPPET: “In addition to the new liquid bomb, a U.S. official said American spy agencies are concerned the attack could use what some call “Frankenbombers,” suicide bombers who could carry an improvised explosive device sewn into their body cavity.

Sunday on “This Week,” Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-MD — the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee — said the intercepted communications called for a “major attack.””

Department of State’s Terrorist Designation of Ibrahim Hassan Tali Al-Asiri

Media Note
Office of the Spokesman

Washington, DC
March 24, 2011

The Secretary of State has designated al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) operative and bomb maker Ibrahim Hassan Tali al-Asiri under E.O. 13224, which targets terrorists and their supporters. This action will help stem the flow of finances to al-Asiri by blocking all property subject to U.S. jurisdiction in which al-Asiri has an interest and prohibiting all transactions by U.S. persons with al-Asiri. AQAP has previously been designated by the United States under Executive Order 13224 and as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

Al-Asiri is an AQAP operative and serves as the terrorist organization’s primary bomb maker. Before joining AQAP, al-Asiri was part of an al-Qa’ida affiliated terrorist cell in Saudi Arabia and was involved in planned bombings of oil facilities in the Kingdom.

Al-Asiri gained particular notoriety for the recruitment of his younger brother as a suicide bomber in a failed assassination attempt of Saudi Prince Muhammed bin Nayif. Although the assassination attempt failed, the brutality, novelty and sophistication of the plot is illustrative of the threat posed by al-Asiri. Al-Asiri is credited with designing the remotely detonated device, which contained one pound of explosives concealed inside his brother’s body.

Al-Asiri is currently wanted by the Government of Saudi Arabia. In addition, Interpol has published an Orange Notice warning the public about the threat posed by him.
