Al-Qaida leader calls for attacks inside US [Obama's "allies" in Syria]
Daytona Beach News Journal ^ | 13 sep 13 | MAAMOUN YOUSSEF

Posted on 09/13/2013 6:21:50 AM PDT by xzins

Al-Qaida's leader on Friday marked the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks by calling on Muslims to strike inside the United States, with big attacks or small, using any opportunity they can to "bleed" America financially.

In an audio message released two days after the 12th anniversary of the attacks, Ayman al-Zawahri said America is not a "mythic power" and that the mujahedeen - Islamic holy warriors - can defeat it with attacks "on its own soil."

Al-Zawahri, the successor to Osama bin Laden, used the anniversary to argue that the United States can be defeated by targeting its economy. At the same time, he also addressed the ongoing upheaval in the Arab world. Pointing to a power struggle going on within the rebellion against Syria's regime, he warned jihadi fighters in that country's civil war not "compromise" with more secular or moderate rebel factions, who he said would eventually turn against the al-Qaida-linked radicals.

Al-Zawahri, who is believed to be hiding in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border regions, said al-Qaida sympathizers should stage small attacks or a "big strike" against the United States, similar to the Sept. 11 attacks in New York and Washington, leaving America in "a state of tension" about when and where the next hit would come.

"We should bleed America economically by motivating it to continue its huge expenditure on its security as America's weak point is its economy,

On Syria's civil war, al-Zawahri addressed al-Qaida-linked jihadis - including many foreign fighters - who have taken an increasingly prominent role in the fight against President Bashar Assad's regime.

"I warn my brothers in Syria against any compromise with those factions. They have to learn the lesson of Egypt," al-Zawahri said. He was referring to the army-backed overthrow of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood.

Zawahiri says:

Small attacks could be done by only a few or even just one person, while at the same time "we must watch and wait to seize any opportunity to direct a large strike on (America), even if that takes years of patience to do it," he said.

Meanwhile, Obama and his crew do everything they can to infect the government with Muslims that have radical connections and keep the border open.

It’s amazing that over half the country doesn’t seem to notice any connection with that and “his Muslim, er Christian, faith.”

If they could then don't you think they would have by now?

(or from their home office after checking with each?)

America’s weak point is its economy
********

That may well be true. National debt closing in on $17 TRILLION! That’s nearly $150,000 per taxpayer. But that pales in comparison to unfunded liabilities which amounts to an incredible $1,099,298 per taxpayer.

The frog is boiling.

Al-Qaida leader calls for attacks inside US

A rather LARGE number of Americans wouldn't know even after it happened because that kind of news is NOT covered on the "Kardashians" or "Dancing with the Stars."

It would be a small favor for Zawahiri to appear on "Dancing with the Stars"

He could do the Scimitar Swirl with Christiane Amanpour as his partner.

I wonder if they must have credit for their acts or if they’re content just to strike and be quiet?

big boardwalk fire at the Jersey Shore...

Are terrorists setting U.S. wildfires? Ex-NSA official: Al-Qaida ignited California blazes

In July 2012, William Scott, a former National Security Agency official and Aviation Week editor, told the American Center for Democracy that terrorists are using fire as a tactical weapon of war.

“Perhaps the most simple form of economic warfare is wild land arson,” Scott said in his “Fire Wars” presentation. “That’s just setting fires in U.S. forests [and] grasslands.”

My take is that it will be situational, depending upon whether the attack is for terror or for economic / military purposes. By "military" I'm including area denial in that the land around urban areas will become increasingly incapable of supporting human life. In that respect, the results of this effort will closely resemble the goals of Agenda 21.

In Biblical terms, all one has to do is to read Leviticus 26:

18 And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.
19 And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass; (smoke, erosion, dust storms, loss of topsoil -CO)
20 And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits.
21 And if ye walk contrary unto me, and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.
22 I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your [high] ways shall be desolate. (wolves, mountain lions, & grizzlies, courtesy of the ESA -CO)
23 And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but will walk contrary unto me;
24 Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet seven times for your sins.
25 And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of [my] covenant: and when ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. (this is a siege, all it takes to set one in a modern city is to cut the electrical power and block the roads -CO)
26 [And] when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver [you] your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied. (food rationing -CO)
I wrote a book about this, having discovered the original Biblical counter-strategy, but few take it seriously because they don't want to do what it says.

"It costs about $6.5 million a day to operate a single carrier strike group, which includes five other warships, an attack submarine, an air wing of 80 fighters and helicopters, and a crew of 6,700."

"The new[est] carrier [USS Gerald Ford] carries a prohibitive price tag of $13.6 billion, double the cost of the last aircraft carrier. And that does not count the $4.7 billion spent on research and development for the new class of carriers."

The allies subdued the world in 4 years in WWII. But, they fought a war to its bitter end. Unconditional surrender.

We have not done so. Therefore, 12 years later we are pushing a politically correct plan of “eternal stabilization”.

turn toward mosques

I have read that the Imams trained and sent to the world's mosques are all trained in a radical brand of islam. This tells me first, that Saudi Arabia is our enemy. It tells me second that the leadership of the 5th column is at the head of the column.

The 1st WTC bombing in 1993 was an attack against the economy. It followed a recession that was pretty much orchestrated by the MSM.

The 9/11 attack was also an attack against the economy. It came on the heels of a recession which was orchestrated by Clinton with the Oil for Food program and the smuggling of Iraqi oil which drove the price of oil so low oil producing countries around the world didn’t have any money to spend and the oil companies weren’t spending.

At the same time the economy suddenly collapsed in 2008, there was also a terrorist attack planned for NYC subway system which would have been an attack against the economy.

In all three cases the dems had their talking points in place to blame the repubs for the recessions.

In 2 of the 3 terrorist attacks, 1ST WTC bombing and 9/11, dems had their talking points in place to blame Bush, 41 and 43.

I don’t have any doubt, when the news media goes full scale blaming the repubs for the crashing economy there will be a major terrorist attack following.

No. This was a multifaceted plan to maintain logistical stores of food in remote locations, train a national militia, maintain a vital pastoral cohort, and to train and empower the poor. All of that was incorporated in that one verse. It is amazing. In fact, it is the key to understanding much of the Sermon on the Mount and the parables of Matthew 25.

That is what was done during the Second Temple Period. It is why the multitudes were available for the Messiah's teaching, as His first year of ministry was a Sabbatical year. The reason the original plan was never followed during that time was that their Persian, Greek, and Roman suzerains would have killed any rabbi teaching on the topic. That is why the founding verse for the Sabbath for the Land is not cited AT ALL in the entire two volumes of the Jerusalem Talmud dedicated to the Sabbath year (Tractate Shviit).
