(CUBA) GITMO Report: Abu Zubaydah has been in US custody for nearly 20 years, arrested on suspicion of being a senior member of Al #Qaeda but was he? #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.11: The CIA agents at an undisclosed black site were certain that time was running out before the next September 11-style attack would be unleashed on America…

#AceDailyNews says that America’s ‘forever prisoner’ has spent two decades in custody for planning the #9/11 attacks. But it’s not clear he was involved in frantic calls to the US Department of Justice, they said they had a top Al Qaeda lieutenant in their custody but his lawyer insists he was nothing more than a terrorist’s “travel agent”.

The interrogation team was convinced Abu Zubaydah knew exactly when the terrorists would strike again. He just needed a reason to talk. 

With written permission from the Justice Department, they took the 31-year-old into a room and strapped him to a modified gurney. 

The guards held him down while a cloth was placed over his mouth and nose. 

Then for 20 slow, agonising seconds, a steady stream of water was poured onto the cloth. Then they did it again and again. 

The “enhanced interrogation technique” was not torture, according to US justice officials, even though witnesses say at one point Zubaydah became “completely unresponsive, with bubbles rising through his open, full mouth”. 

“Some of the folks who were watching were tearful,” James Mitchell, a psychiatrist who helped design the CIA’s interrogation program, would later testify to a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay. 

“I was tearful. I cry at dog food commercials, and it was particularly hard for me to do.”

Despite their tears, the CIA agents would waterboard Zubaydah 83 times in a handful of sessions. 

Waterboarding is a brutal sight to behold. Prisoners writhe in pain, they moan, they vomit. 

But the agents believed it was only a matter of time before America was hit again, and Zubaydah could help them save lives. 

There was just one problem: Abu Zubaydah was not Osama bin Laden’s trusted aide. If he was a member of Al Qaeda, he was likely no more than a foot soldier.

But he did have one extremely valuable piece of the puzzle to understanding how a group of men brought America to its knees on September 11, 2001: a name. 

And Zubaydah had already given up this key piece of information well before the first drop of water hit his face. 

The Al Qaeda leader who wasn’t

Abu Zubaydah was arrested in a US raid on a Pakistani safe house six months after 9/11. 

Shoddy US intelligence transformed this low-level terrorist facilitator into an Al Qaeda kingpin, with the CIA rumoured to have paid a source $10 million for information on his whereabouts. 

Shot in the thigh, testicle and stomach during a fire fight with US and Pakistani authorities, Zubaydah was gravely ill when an FBI agent walked into his hospital room.

Ali Soufan was not popular with his CIA counterparts. The FBI interrogator opposed abuse of detainees, and believed good, old-fashioned conversation could get Zubaydah to open up.

Over the course of about 10 days, Soufan kept his detainee alive, holding ice to his lips, changing his bedding and even tending to his wounds. 

As he cared for him, the agent began to ask Zubaydah questions and show him photographs of suspected terrorists. 

Soufan said he accidentally pulled the wrong photo from his pile, but when he went to put it away, Zubaydah stopped him. 

He identified the man in the picture as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, a name that until then meant nothing to US authorities. 

“We did not even know that Khalid Sheikh Mohammad was a member of Al Qaeda,” Soufan told NPR last year.

“And now he’s telling us that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is actually the mastermind of 9/11.” 

But the CIA reportedly wanted more out of Zubaydah. 

Soufan says the detainee was taken from his hospital bed several times by CIA agents, stripped naked, bombarded with heavy metal music and deprived of sleep. 

At one point during his 10 days with Zubaydah, Soufan said he came across a strange wooden box “like a coffin” that had been purpose built to lock up the suspect. 

“I swear to God,” he shouted over the phone at Pasquale D’Amuro, then the FBI assistant director for counter-terrorism. 

“I’m going to arrest these guys!”

Soufan was immediately sent back to the US, and Zubaydah was renditioned, a government-sponsored form of abduction. Activists say he was taken to Poland, Thailand and Afghanistan. 

The psychologist who would later oversee Zubaydah’s waterboarding, James Mitchell, said Soufan was simply the good cop to his bad cop, and benefited from the extreme measures to which Zubaydah was exposed. 

“You can’t discount the role of sleep deprivation in weakening Abu Zubaydah’s resolve and shifting his priorities from protecting information to getting some rest,” he wrote in his book, Enhanced Interrogation. 

Mitchell spent years defending the program he helped build for the CIA, and first used on Abu Zubaydah.

He did, however, admit to feeling “sorry” for the Saudi-born prisoner and tried and failed to get the CIA to stop waterboarding him. 

His partner John Bruce Jessen remained silent for nearly 15 years. 

Finally, when they were sued by several prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Jessen opened up about the “great, soulful torment” he felt over his own life’s work. 

‘It was going to be my fault if I didn’t continue’

John Mitchell and John Bruce Jessen were two psychologists teaching US commandos how to endure torture when they were approached by the CIA in 2002. 

The men were experts on the human mind and what it took to push it right to the brink.

The CIA reasoned that if they knew how to get soldiers to remain silent even while being brutalised by America’s enemy, they also knew how to twist that knowledge when the enemy was in America’s hands. 

“Jim and I went into a cubicle,” Jessen told a deposition in 2017. 

“He sat down at a typewriter and together we wrote out a list.”

The menu of 20 items, including waterboarding, sleep deprivation and stress positions, would eventually be whittled down to 10 because some of the suggestions were deemed too harsh.

The men’s agency would be paid $US81 million for their work, and employ about 60 people, though they both maintain the CIA was in full control of the program. 

In the dark corners of secret CIA prisons, away from the prying eyes of Congress, the 10 techniques in the hands of untrained interrogators began to metastasise. 

Abu Zubaydah, who was the first person subjected to the program, lost an eye while in the custody of the CIA at an undisclosed location. 

He began to draw sketches of what he said occurred as the CIA tried to extract more and more intelligence from him. 

The drawings show him nude and shackled to a bar above his head and locked in a small box he referred to as a “dog box”. 

Zubaydah reportedly spent 11 full days in a coffin-sized box and 29 hours in a smaller box just 53 centimetres wide. 

“As soon as they locked me up inside the box, I tried my best to sit up, but in vain, for the box was too short,” he said through his lawyer.

“I tried to take a curled position but [in] vain, for it was too tight.”

As the years went on, Jessen and Mitchell said they both became uncomfortable with the dark evolution of their program. 

“They kept telling me every day a nuclear bomb was going to be exploded in the United States and that because I had told them to stop, I had lost my nerve and it was going to be my fault if I didn’t continue,” Jessen testified.

Mitchell said they were accused of losing their “spine” by CIA officials as they warned that waterboarding was not proving to be effective in flushing out information. 

“I think the word that was actually used is that, ‘You guys are pussies,'” he said in a deposition. 

“There was going to be another attack in America and the blood of dead civilians is going to be on your hands.”

America’s ‘forever prisoner’ 

When Barack Obama entered the White House in 2008, he banned the CIA’s brutal interrogation techniques. 

He would later cast the program as a traumatic response to 9/11, a nation lost in the fog of war, trying desperately to stop another attack

“We tortured some folks,” he said. 

“We crossed a line, and that needs to be understood and accepted.”

Not only did A US Senate investigation conclude the program was morally wrong, but also ineffective in extracting any information of value. 

“Of particular note was the treatment of Abu Zubaydah over a span of 17 days in August 2002,” Dianne Feinstein, the chairwoman of the Senate intelligence committee, said after releasing the report into the program.

“This involved non-stop interrogation and abuse, 24/7 … and included multiple forms of deprivation and physical assault.” 

The CIA’s then-director John Brennan acknowledged the program’s shortcomings and that the agency “made mistakes”.

“The most serious problems occurred early on and stemmed from the fact that the agency was unprepared and lacked the core competencies required to carry out an unprecedented, worldwide program of detaining and interrogating suspected Al Qaeda and affiliated terrorists,” he said when the report was released. 

Zubaydah is still in American custody at the military prison in Guantanamo Bay, unofficially known by the US as a “forever prisoner”.

He has never been charged, and he has never faced trial. 

“The best-case scenario is that he’ll be released. He’ll never be prosecuted,” one of Zubaydah’s long-term lawyers, Joe Margulies, told the ABC. 

Who really is Abu Zubaydah? 

Margulies’s view is in line with the conclusions of the Senate intelligence report, which found CIA records “do not support” claims Zubaydah “was one of the planners of the September 11 attacks”. 

The Cornell University professor has litigated cases challenging the prisoner’s detention since 2007 and recently joined another in the US Supreme Court, seeking to hold John Bruce Jessen and James Mitchell to account, perhaps criminally.

Baher Azmy has also run Zubaydah’s cases for a decade. 

At most, he describes the prisoner’s connection to Al Qaeda as “equivalent to a low-level travel agent”, while reserving his harshest criticism for the interrogation and detention regime itself.

“I don’t for one second believe Guantanamo justified any ends. It was in part security theatre, in part incompetence, and in part cruelty,” Azmy said. 

“The government has largely conceded he is not who they thought he was, but are nevertheless detaining him so that he won’t reveal the monstrosities the US government did to him.” 

After 19 years, Zubaydah is not only a forever prisoner among the last batch of 39 still being held in Guantanamo Bay’s Camp 5 prison, he holds the unwanted distinction of being its first.

If it sticks to its word, the Biden administration will have all remaining detainees out and the facility closed by the end of its term in early 2025.

After everything Abu Zubaydah has been through, his current circumstances approaching the anniversary of the attacks that changed the world remain a state secret.

“His condition and everything his lawyers learn from observing him and talking to him is classified, so I can’t tell you how he’s doing,” Margulies offered guardedly, before relaying his own observations at the 20-year milestone after 9/11.

“He was the poster child for the US torture program, he was the first person cast into a black site, he was the first person to have his interrogation enhanced,” Margulies said. 

“No-one passes through that tunnel without serious damage.”

Margulies said the prison in Guantanamo Bay had become “a symbol of arrogance and hubris, of the willingness to cast people out”. 

“No-one is beyond the circle of human care,” he said. 

“Dignity is a non-negotiable right that all of us enjoy, simply by virtue of being human.”

(NEW DELHI) Glasgow Airport Bombing Report: The Al-Qaeda terrorist who helped ‘mastermind’ the terrorist attack served 18-months and was deported has confessed to his involvement in planning the suicide bombing and revealed exactly how the plot was hatched #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.31: Sabeel Ahmed, a former NHS doctor, was arrested following the June 2007 attack and sentenced to 18 months in prison in the UK after pleading guilty to failing to disclose information that could have prevented an act of terrorism: He was then deported to India after his release….

#AceDailyNews says that a former NHS doctor behind Glasgow Airport jihad bombing confesses to plotting the attack and the Al-Qaeda terrorist behind confesses to plotting attack,” by Craig Williams, of GlasgowLive, August 26, 2021:

His brother, Kafeel Ahmed, died of his injuries in Glasgow Royal Infirmary in 2007, two months after the attack – which saw him attempt to drive a burning jeep loaded with propane canisters into the airport terminal building.

Fellow perpetrator, Bilal Abdullah, was found guilty of conspiracy to commit murder in December of 2009 and sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum of 32 years.

Ahmed, nicknamed ‘Motu Doctor’ by Indian security services, is currently in custody in Delhi’s Tihar Jail having been detained in Saudi Arabia in September last year and extradited to India in connection with an alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorism recruitment plot.

Hindi News have labelled Ahmed Sabeel ‘probably the single most highly educated terrorist of India’ and report that he ‘used his ancestral property worth to fund terrorism, recruit terrorists and buy arms to create havoc’ in the country.

They report that Ahmed, in his confession concerning his role as ‘mastermind’ of the Glasgow Airport attack, says he was radicalised alongside his elder brother Kapil while on repeated visits to the Tipu Sultan Masjid mosque and surrounding areas in Kolkata, India.

While working as a doctor at a hospital near Liverpool, Ahmed added that he was in constant contact with his elder brother and that during that time his brother would constantly talk to him about committing Jihad.

Sabeel told the news outlet: “After some time in May 2007, my elder brother Kafeel Ahmed came to visit me in England. My brother told me that something big has to be done for Jihad and for that we have to plan together”.

Sabeel revealed that he and his brother were planning a suicide attack in London and he assured Kafeel of all possible help. Despite this, Kafeel returned to India. Things then started happening when Kafeel went to Iceland and during that period the pair kept talking by email and other communication methods and planned Jihad….

Sabeel added: “Just before the Glasgow bomb blasts on June 30, 2007, my brother Kafeel sent me a message in which he had sent the password of an email. I read the message, which was about Mission Jihad.

“There was a suicide attack at Glasgow Airport on the day the email was sent. Kafeel was badly injured in this attack and was immediately admitted to hospital, where he died one month later”.

Sabeel was subsequently arrested in Liverpool by anti-terrorism officers and sentenced to jail for failing to disclose information that could have prevented the attack – having misled detectives probing the attack for five days….

#al-qaeda, #glasgow, #india, #new-delhi

(WASHINGTON,D.C.) JW TPS REPORT: In its short tenure the Biden administration has extended a special reprieve for five different groups of illegal immigrants living in the U.S. #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.02: The most recent was renewed a few days ago for thousands of people from Yemen, the Middle Eastern Islamic nation well known as an Al #Qaeda breeding ground. Officially, the provisional amnesty is known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a humanitarian measure designed to shield undocumented aliens from deportation during emergencies. …

JW REPORT: “Temporary” Reprieve: It is supposed to be a short-term solution for foreign nationals that do not quality as refugees but cannot immediately return home because of difficulties caused by factors such as violence, natural disasters, or political and economic instability.

TPS, which is typically granted in 18-month increments, not only protects foreign nationals from deportation it also allows them to work in the U.S.

The Obama administration went crazy with TPS, renewing it for tens of thousands of Hondurans and Nicaraguans more than a decade and a half after a hurricane hit the Central American nations, prolonging it for Africans two years after originally issuing it due to Ebola, and repeatedly restoring it for tens of thousands of Haitians years after an earthquake struck the island. During its two terms the Obama administration never missed an opportunity to offer illegal immigrants reprieve, using inclement weather in the U.S., a virus, natural disasters and tainted water in an American city to extend the perk. Nationals of Yemen have been protected by both Democrats and Republicans, receiving TPS over “ongoing armed conflict” under Obama and two extensions under Trump. A few days ago, the Biden administration renewed the TPS for Yemenis yet again, protecting approximately 2,180 people.

“Yemen continues to experience worsening humanitarian and economic conditions that prevent individuals from safely returning to their homes,” said Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in a statementannouncing the “re-designation.” He added that the administration “will continue to protect and offer these individuals a place of residency temporarily in the United States.” The measure will protect Yemenis who previously benefitted from TPS through March 2023 and will allow about 480 additional Yemenis to qualify. It marks the fifth TPS extension issued by the Biden administration since taking office this year. In January TPS was extended for 6,700 Syrians and 1,800 additional Syrians were allowed to file applications for the 18-month reprieve. In early March 320,000 Venezuelans received TPS for 18 months and in mid-March Burmese nationals got it for the same period after a military coup and security forces’ violence against civilians. Later in March the administration extended TPS yet again for more than 100,000 Haitians over the economic crisis that persists more than a decade after the earthquake that provoked the original TPS.

Yemen was first designated for TPS by the Obama administration in 2015after a northern opposition group called Houthis initiated a violent, territorial expansion across the country and forced Yemeni government leaders to exile in Saudi Arabia. When it expired, the Obama administration extended it another 18 months on the “dual bases of ongoing armed conflict and extraordinary and temporary conditions.”When that second extension expired, the Trump administration renewed it twice, first under Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in 2018 and again under acting Secretary Chad Wolf. The latest extension is warranted because, although it is in its seventh year, the protracted conflict has shown no sign of abating and fighting between Houthi and government forces continues, according to a Federal Register announcement issued this month.

Yemen is a hotbed of terrorism that serves as the headquarters of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). Nevertheless, shortly after getting elected President Biden revoked the terrorist designation of a Yemen-based militant group, a move that was followed by a fat “humanitarian assistance” check from American taxpayers. The Federal Register bulletin announcing the group’s (Ansarallah, also known as Partisans of God) terrorist classification says it has committed or has attempted to commit, or poses a significant risk of committing, or has participated in training to commit, acts of terrorism that threaten the security of U.S. nationals or the national security, foreign policy, or economy of the United States. The international community strongly opposed classifying Ansarallah as a terrorist entity, asserting it would come with repercussions for humanitarian operations. Days after rescinding the terrorist designation, the Biden administration gave Yemen $191 million in assistance.

(WASHINGTON, D.C) JW REPORT: On the heels of approving a 9/11 Al #Qaeda operative’s release, the Department of Defense (DOD) is freeing three more “forever prisoners” with similar credentials from the U.S. military jail in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.03: The about face appears to be part of a Biden administration initiative to clear out the top security facility that houses the world’s most dangerous Islamic terrorists, including 9/11 masterminds Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), Ramzi Binalshibh, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali, and Mustafa Ahmed Adam al Hawsawi as well as USS Cole bomber Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri. The prison has around 40 detainees, down from a peak of nearly 700 in 2003.

CUBA: #Gitmo to Free Three Al #Qaeda Operatives (“Forever Prisoners”) with 9/11, Bin Laden Ties according to Judicial Watch In all four cases, the men were previously denied release by the Military Commission’s parole board, operated by the Obama-created Periodic Review Secretariat (PRS), because they were considered a threat to national security.

GITMO

Judicial Watch covers all the PRS hearings live via satellite video feed at the Pentagon and has traveled repeatedly to Gitmo to observe the military tribunal trials of 9/11 terrorists and al-Nashiri, the USS Cole bomber. Here are the latest developments: Months after clearing Said Salih Said Nashir, the PRS’s Periodic Review Board (PRB) has endorsed the release of Abdul Rabbani Abu Rahmah, Uthman Abd Al Rahim Muhammad Uthman and Saifullah Paracha. Rahman operated safe houses and provided logistical support to most of the 9/11 hijackers, according to his DOD file. He was also directly involved with terrorist plans and operations directed by 9/11 mastermind KSM. “Detainee admitted working directly for Khalid Shaykh Muhammad ISN 010024DP (KU- 10024), as an al-Qaida facilitator from early 2000 to September 2002,” the military file reads. “Detainee’s duties included managing several Karachi, Pakistan (PK), safe houses. Detainee had direct access with many high-level al-Qaida members including Usama Bin Laden (UBL); Ayman al-Zawahiri; Muhammad Atef, aka (Abu Hafs al-Masri); and Nashwan Abd al-Razzaq Abd al-Baqi, aka (Abdul Hadi al-Iraqi).” In his final release determination the parole board writes that Rahmah’s “continued law of war detention is no longer necessary to protect against a continuing significant threat to the security of the United States.”

No further explanation is offered for ending the terrorist’s incarceration after repeatedly denying it. The same applies to Uthman, a former Bin Laden body guard, according to his DOD file. Uthman trained at Al Qaeda’s al-Faruq and Tarnak Farms camps and fought in Afghanistan as a member of Bin Laden’s 55th Arab Brigade, the military document says. A 2016 Guantanamo Detainee Profile reveals that Uthman has “anti-US sentiments and is sympathetic to extremist causes.” The document also states that Uthman received a letter from a former Gitmo detainee suspected of reengaging in terrorist activities. That same year the PRB unanimously denied Uthman’s release, determining that his detention remained necessary to protect against a continuing significant threat to the security of the United States. “In making this determination, the Board considered the detainee’s past involvement in terrorist activities to include receiving combat training, staying in al-Qaeda guesthouses, fighting in the Tora Bora mountains probably against Coalition Forces, and his selection to be a bodyguard for Usama Bin Ladin,” the PRB document reads. The board rejected his release a few more times before mysteriously approving just weeks ago. The language mirrors Rahmah’s final determination and offers no further details for the abrupt change.

Paracha is a Pakistan-based businessman who worked directly with KSM and facilitated senior Al Qaeda leaders and operational planners, according to his Gitmo detainee file. “Paracha’s extensive extremist business contacts that he established before his detention could provide him opportunities to reengage upon release should he choose to use them,” the government document states. Vetoing his release five years ago, the PRB considered Paracha’s “past involvement in terrorist activities, including contacts and activities with Usama Bin Laden, Kahlid Shaykh Muhammad and other senior al-Qaeda members, facilitating financial transactions and travel, and developing media for al-Qaeda.” The board further notes Paracha’s “refusal to take responsibility for his involvement with al-Qaeda, his inability and refusal to distinguish between legitimate and nefarious business contacts, his indifference toward the impact of his prior actions, and his lack of a plan to prevent exposure to avenues of reengagement.” After a handful of denials for release, the board issued a short final determination stating that Paracha’s detention is “no longer necessary to protect against a continuing significant threat to the security of the United States.”

The reality is that a multitude of captives freed from the compound at the U.S. Naval base in southeast Cuba have reengaged in terrorist activity. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) has for years documented it in reports and most recently revealed that of 729 detainees released from Gitmo since the prison opened nearly two decades ago, 125 have been confirmed to reengage in terrorism, though the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) put the figure at 130. In its latest update, the ODNI discloses that the whereabouts of 69 former Gitmo detainees that the government is certain returned to terrorism is unknown. “Based on trends identified during the past 17 years, we assess that some detainees currently at GTMO will seek to reengage in terrorist or insurgent activities after they are transferred,” the latest ODNI report states, reiterating language used in past reports.

(BURKINA FASO, Africa.) Jihadists Report: #IslamicState & al – #Qaeda during the last seven days at least 17,500 displaced and 45-people killed in attacks #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.16: The crisis continues in Africa, while the woke world shows little concern. In a little over one week in Burkina Faso, over 17,500 people “have been forcefully displaced from their homes” and 45 people murdered by expanding Islamic State and al-Qaeda jihadists:

Burkina Faso: At least 45 people murdered, over 17,500 displaced in jihad onslaught from #IslamicState and al- #Qaeda While the focus on the West remains curbing “Islamophobia,” “the security situation in the Sahel region is fueling one of the fastest growing displacement crises in the world.” ‘And it’s all about the establishment of an Islamic caliphate in the region and ultimately the spread of Sharia globally’

“UN says armed attacks in Burkina Faso displace over 17,500 in past 10 days,” Reuters, May 7, 2021:

More than 17,500 people in Burkina Faso have been forcefully displaced from their homes in the past 10 days due to a series of attacks by unidentified armed groups that have killed 45 people, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) said on Friday.

Attacks by jihadist armed groups linked to al Qaeda and the Islamic State in the West African Sahel region have been rising sharply since the start of the year, particularly in Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso, with civilians bearing the brunt.

The UNHCR report said gunmen had carried out a series of attacks in three separate regions, burning down houses and shooting civilians dead. The assailants also ransacked health centres and damaged homes and shops.

“Clearly one of the reasons is to cause mayhem and to torment civilians,” UNHCR spokesman Boris Cheshirkov told a briefing in Geneva.

The security situation in the Sahel region is fuelling one of the fastest growing displacement crises in the world, he said.

Security sources told Reuters on Monday that armed assailants had killed around 30 people in an attack on a village in eastern Burkina Faso. read more

Last week, two Spanish journalists and an Irish citizen were killed in an armed ambush by suspected militants during an anti-poaching patrol near a nature reserve in eastern Burkina Faso. read more

“The trends we see only point to more violence to come,” Cheshirkov said.

The violence in Burkina Faso has displaced more than 1.14 million people in just over two years….

(MANHATTAN) MEMRI Report: Jihad terrorists disguise themselves as protesters and pretend to have similar views in order to infiltrate them and steer them to violent actions, such as car ramming #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.29: On April 14, 2021, the pro-Al-Qaeda Jaysh Al-Malahim Al-Electroni released the second issue of its magazine Wolves of Manhattan, which included several articles inciting its supporters who live in Western countries to exploit civil unrest to carry out lone wolf attacks:

The following report is now a complimentary offering from MEMRI’s Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM). For JTTM subscription information, click here: MEMRI

Jihadist group offers Bitcoin for murder of cops, tells US jihadis to ‘go to protests to carry out your operations: “Pro-Al-Qaeda ‘Wolves Of Manhattan’ Magazine Offers Bitcoin To Anyone Killing Police Officers In Western Countries, Recommends Lone Wolves Infiltrate Protests In U.S., Europe,”

That is likely to be very easy, as the protesters already have virtually the same world view as the jihadis.

The opening article, titled “The Lone Wolf And The Protests,” tells supporters to carry out terrorist acts under the cover of protests that are taking place in some Western countries. It identifies the U.S. and France as being among the top countries that currently suffer from civil unrest, along with Italy, Germany, and Britain.

The article provides tips on which kinds of protests are easier and more effective to infiltrate, saying that a lone wolf should choose a “massive chaotic protest” that take places daily and lasts for a long time, like post-election protests in the U.S. or protests by France’s yellow vests.

The article also recommends that lone wolves choose a protest taking place at night so that it will be easier for them to escape or hide their identity.

Discussing how lone wolves can exploit protests, the article suggests that they disguise themselves as protesters and pretend to have similar views in order to infiltrate the protesters and steer them to violent actions, such as car ramming.

The article warns the lone wolf against stabbing protesters, since this could alert others to his motive and make it easier for them to capture or beat him. Instead, it recommends that the lone wolf hire a “militiaman,” or “mercenary” to do the car ramming.

“This way, you will kill a large number of Crusaders because they are all gathered. Besides, this act will have other implications, as you can incite the protesters against the police, whom you will claim to be the ones who sent this man to ram them. You will be able to enrage the protesters to steer them to fight with the police,” said the article.

It also encourages lone wolves to take advantage of the civil unrest in some countries to attack police officers. Elaborating on this, the article argues that this is easy, as the lone wolf can exploit the angry protesters, whom it describes as “Crusaders,” and steer them towards attacking the police.

In addition, the article asks the lone wolf to take advantage of the protests to destroy and vandalize private property if he cannot gain access to public property. “If you cannot reach public property, target private property, vandalize cars, shops, and stands. Remember that all of the Crusaders are jointly with their government in war against Islam,” it said.

It also highlights another advantage in this kind of protest, saying that lone wolves can bring knives and Molotov cocktail without raising suspicions. Additionally, laws concerning rioters are not harsh and often do not impose penalties on violent protesters such as those imposed on lone wolves, said the article. “Everyone [during a protest] is violating the law so if you got arrested – Allah forbid – your sentence will be different from that of a lone wolf.”

The article further explains that “timing” is the most important factor when it comes to attacking the police. It adds that lone wolves should wait for an opportunity to present itself, such as when there is a fight between a protester and a police officer, and states that it is better in such cases to use Molotov cocktails than knives. “Particularly when the police officer is the one who started the fight. In such a case, it is the right opportunity for you to kill him and become a hero in the eyes of the protesters and even to encourage them to commit acts similar to yours,” said the article.

“So, Wolves of Manhattan everywhere, go to protests and demonstrations to carry out your operations. Invade for the sake of Allah. Remember that an apostate and his killer will never meet in Hell. These protests are an opportunity presented to you on a golden platter. They are easy to infiltrate with Allah’s permission. Do not waste this precious chance and remember that you are avenging your people in Palestine, Burma, Kashmir, and everywhere,” concluded the article.

It is worth noting that the first issue of the magazine, released in November 2020, had articles encouraging supporters in the West to exploit COVID-19 conditions, such as the use of facial masks, to hide their identity when carrying out attacks.

The magazine includes an announcement of a reward in Bitcoin worth $60.000 to the first person who kills a police officer in a Western country. The reward is available only to any Christian, Jew, or atheist, according to the announcement.

In order to claim it, the lone wolf must send a photo documenting the attack to Jaysh Al-Malahim Al-Electroni via its address, @nashirjaish, on the Gnews Al-Qaeda server on Rocket.Chat. The photo will not be published and is only needed to verify the attack. The group also pledged not to share any information about the attack or announce that the reward was received.

The announcement also noted that the Bitcoin is being paid by another party and not by the group….

(SYRIA) JUST IN: Takfiri terrorists in are being transferred to Yemen to join the ranks of Saudi forces and mercenaries fighting Yemeni forces in the strategic central province of Ma’rib, Lebanon’s according to al-Akbar newspaper #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewReport – Apr.05: The report said the Saudi command center in Yemen’s southern port city of Aden has even instructed the al- #Qaeda warlord in Abyan to secure the entry points for terrorists arriving from Syria and other countries.

Terrorists in Syria transferred to Yemen to aid Saudi-led forces in Ma’rib: Report: ‘Citing Yemeni intelligence sources, the paper said al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) militants are waiting for terrorists from Syria to arrive in Yemen’s southern province of Abyan’

Security and intelligence sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said AQAP terrorists have been tasked with transporting the incoming militants and their weapons to Ma’rib.

Saudi aggressors looking for escape from Yemen quagmire: Minister

Saudi aggressors looking for escape from Yemen quagmire: MinisterThe Yemeni defense minister says Saudi Arabia is looking for a way to get out of the Yemen quagmire.

For the past two weeks, al-Qaeda terrorists have been deployed in vast areas off the coast in Abyan under the command of a high-profile militant identified as Salem al-Shina, with the operations being coordinated with the Salafist Islah Party amd the Saudi command center, the report said.

According to local sources, al-Qaeda terrorists are roaming publicly in the areas of Wadi Hamra, Yahmas, al-Maraqasha and al-Wazi’, and have repeatedly met with senior Saudi military figures at their barracks.

According to al-Akhbar, al-Qaeda terrorists launched a series of attacks last week on the positions of Southern Transitional Council (STC) separatists in order to secure the arrival of fellow militants from Syria.

Over the past few weeks, Ma’rib has been the scene of large-scale operations by the Yemeni troops and allied Popular Committees fighters, who are pushing against Saudi-led mercenaries and militants loyal to Yemen’s former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

Saudi Arabia, backed by the US and its other regional allies, launched the devastating war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of Yemen’s former president back to power and crushing the popular Ansarullah movement. 

Yemeni armed forces advance further towards heart of Ma’rib

Yemeni armed forces advance further towards heart of Ma’ribYemen’s army and Popular Committees liberate more areas from Saudi-led forces in the countryside of the west-central Ma’rib Province’s capital.

The Yemeni armed forces and allied Popular Committees have, however, gone from strength to strength against the Saudi-led invaders, and left Riyadh and its allies bogged down in the country.

The Saudi-led military aggression, meanwhile, has left more than 200,000 Yemenis dead, and displaced millions of people.

It has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases across the country.

SYRIA: ‘ Denies rebels took over Army Airport on border with Jordan ‘

#AceNewsReport – SYRIA:June.13: Syria denied claims by rebels that they took over an army airport in southern Syria along the border with Jordan on Thursday.

A news flash on state television said the army had so far repelled three attacks on the outskirts of the al-Thala airport, Reuters reported. Rebels said they seized the airbase in a renewed offensive.

The loss of the airport would compound setbacks for Damascus in the area after losing a nearby military base this week.

They also recently denied that a military plane had crashed in southern Syria, according to state television. Rebels said earlier they had shot down a Russian-made MIG jet, Reuters reported. The released video featured what appeared to be a burnt-out plane.

It was shown near the site of fighting around a military airport that rebels have been trying to gain control of since Wednesday.

LIBYA: ‘ Al-Qaeda Battling Islamic State after one of their leaders are Killed ‘

#AceNewsReport – LIBYA:Post Update:June.10: Al-Qaeda-linked militants are battling an Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) affiliate in eastern Libya after one of their leaders was shot dead, AP reported.

Nasr Akr, an Al-Qaeda-inspired militant, was assassinated along with his aide in the eastern town of Darna. The Shura Council of Darna’s jihadists announced his killing on Wednesday, blaming it on Islamic State militants.

The killing sparked heavy fighting, leaving at least nine IS militants dead, according to witnesses. The so-called Islamic State seized control of Darna last year.

The IS group began as an Al-Qaeda affiliate, but later fell out with the jihadist network.

SYRIA: ‘ Lebanese Troops Kill 16-Al-Nursa Front Terrorists ‘

#AceNewsReport – SYRIA:June.06: Lebanese servicemen eliminated 16 militants of the al-Nusra Front terrorist group near the border with Syria, a source in Lebanon’s army said Saturday.

“Sixteen Jabhat al-Nusra militants were killed. The artillery of Lebanese army straddled the [al-Nusra] detachment, which tried to break into the al-Uyun gorge in the south-east of Arsal town [near Syrian border],” the source told RIA Novosti.

Arsal was the epicenter of fierce clashes between the Lebanese forces and the Islamic State and the Nusra Front rebel groups in August 2014. The extremists captured some 30 Lebanese servicemen, of whom they have since released eight and executed four.

 After the Lebanese army liberated the town, the terrorists fled to the mountains, organizing rear bases there. They occasionally attack Lebanese villages and the army checkpoints from remote mountainous areas.

#AceWorldNews – TAJIKISTAN:Jan.12:Fundamentalist Islamic movement Salafia has been banned as an extremist organization by the republic of Tajikistan, the prosecutor general’s office told TASS on Monday.

“All those involved in this extremist movement will be criminally prosecuted,” the prosecutor’s office said.
