Following the Paris terrorist attack we noted that it was only the beginning and more carnage is coming. While thus far attacks on Western targets have been limited to lone wolves or small groups of individuals using traditional weapons like firearms and improvised explosive devices, a new report from the European Parliament compiled in the aftermath of last month’s attack warns that the next wave could come in the form of highly destructive weapons designed to kill significantly larger amounts of people.

ISIS has recruited experts with chemistry, physics and computer science degrees to wage war with weapons of mass destruction against the West, a shocking European Parliament report has claimed.

The terror organisation, according to the briefing document, ‘may be planning to try to use internationally banned weapons of mass destruction in future attacks’.

the EU report claims that government should ‘consider publicly addressing the possibility of terrorist attack using chemical, biological, radiological or even nuclear materials’.

‘We are dealing with a very serious, well-resourced, determined international terrorist organisation that is now active on the streets of Europe.

It’s not just Europe. Terrorists with ties to the Islamic State, Al Queda and other organizations are now active on the streets of America.

Though President Obama claimed just one day prior to the Paris attack that ISIS had been contained, the head of Europol Rob Wainright says that the region is dealing with a “very serious, well resourced and highly determined international terrorist organization” that is now actively searching for targets and planning to carry out attacks.

Experts at NATO and other international organizations suggest that it may already be too late for locking down Europe’s borders because not only is the threat already there, but the weapons that will be used to carry out future attacks have already been smuggled in:

The shocking study claims that 150 cases of nuclear or radiological trafficking are reported annually.

Worse still: ‘CBRN substances have been carried undetected into the European Union.

‘Interpol’s monthly CBRN intelligence reports show numerous examples of attempts to acquire, smuggle or use CBRN materials.’

And for those who think we’re safe because an ocean separates us from Europe, one security expert warns that the threat of weapons of mass destruction is not just limited to the European Union:

Nomi Bar-Yaacov, Associate Fellow in Chatham House’s International Security Department said: ‘There is a very real risk of ISIS using unconventional weapons in Europe and beyond.’

The report highlights the one threat that the Obama administration continues to ignore. It’s not the guns that are causing mass casualties by ISIS militants or self-radicalized extremists.

It is the Islamic extremist’s mentality to kill as many infidels as possible.

Chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons are banned across the world, yet Islamic terrorists will stop at nothing to acquire the materials, build the devices and deploy them in population-dense areas.

Though you won’t see it on mainstream media, government officials have already confirmed that nuclear weapons of mass destruction have been found entering the United States through the port of San Diego. And last year armed gunmen stole a nuclear device from a government research facility in Mexico, prompting the Texas Rangers to deploy personnel to help secure the southern border.

In May of this year another security report claimed that the Islamic State intended to carry out a nuclear attack on American soil within twelve months:

Let me throw a hypothetical operation onto the table. The Islamic State has billions of dollars in the bank, so they call on their wilayah in Pakistan to purchase a nuclear device through weapons dealers with links to corrupt officials in the region. 

The weapon is then transported overland until it makes it to Libya, where the muj?hid?n move it south to Nigeria. Drug shipments from Columbia bound for Europe pass through West Africa, so moving other types of contraband from East to West is just as possible.

The nuke and accompanying mujahadin arrive on the shorelines of South America and are transported through the  porous borders of Central America before arriving in Mexico and up to the border with the United States.

From there it’s just a quick hop through a smuggling tunnel and hey presto, they’re mingling with another 12 million “illegal” aliens in America with a nuclear bomb in the trunk of their car.

Full Report: Terrorist Nuke Attack May Be Carried Out Inside the United States in Next 12 Months

Last week America saw what just two people with the desire to kill infidels could do – fourteen dead and twenty-one injured. For the Obama administration and those who support open immigration policies for non-documented individuals, it is being explained away as the result of easy access to firearms.

How will they explain the mass casualties caused by a chemical, biological or nuclear weapon?

ISIS/ISIl, recently rebranded as IS, the Islamic State, is giving Christians three choices:

  1. Convert to Islam
  2. Dhimma – pay protection money called jizya
  3. Death

Iraqi Christians most of whom see these choices as actually no choice at all are fleeing for their lives as the militants sweep through the Iraqi city of Mosul. a report by the BBC said that had until midnight on Saturday to either comply…or die.

“We offer them three choices: Islam; the dhimma contract – involving payment of the jizya; if they refuse this they will have nothing but the sword,” ISIS said in a statement.

The persecution of Christians is increasing, with people driven from their homes, taking only what they can carry. The dhimma is a historic contract that offers protection to non-muslims if they pay for it. the fee is called a jizya. In February of this year ISIS delivered a similar ultimatum. to Christians in Raqqa, Syria. The protection fee  was half an ounce of pure gold, something most people don’t have.

The United Nations lists the average per capita income for 2011, the most up to date statistics they have, as $2484, and an employment rate of 69.4%. With gold at $1313 per ounce, and half an ounce representing almost four month salary ISIS can be pretty sure that most people will not be able to afford the jizya,narrowing the choices to conversion to Islam or death.

“Christian families are on their way to Dohuk and Irbil,” in the neighbouring autonomous region of Kurdistan, Patriarch Louis Sako told the AFP news agency.

10,000 Christians fled Mosul after ISIS took control at the beginning of June and numbers  have fallen rapidly to zero since then.

“For the first time in the history of Iraq, Mosul is now empty of Christians,” he said.

Abu Bakr al-Bagdadi has been declared caliph of the newly created Islamic State and he is calling for Muslims from around the globe to make Hijrah, to emigrate to the new state. This is apparently the duty of all Muslims if they are able to make the trip.

The leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) called on the world’s Muslims to immigrate to the territory seized by the Sunni militant group in Iraq and Syria to help build a new Islamic State.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi made the call in a 19-minute audio recording posted online, saying: “Muslims, rush to your state. Yes, it is your state.”

He made a special call to skilled workers, such as scholars, judges, doctors, engineers and people with military and administrative expertise. (source)

Yesterday fighters with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) stormed the Saint Behnam monastery on Monday, located 30 kilometers (20 miles) southeast of Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city.

News agency AFP quoted a cleric who heard the militants saying, “You have no place here anymore; you have to leave immediately.” The monks were reportedly forced to abandon all their possessions and leave the monastery with nothing except the clothes they were wearing.

The monks were not given any ultimatums and all left the monastery unharmed.

It’s amazing how quickly things can change. A few short months ago, Iraq was more or less under control, with American and Iraqi troops protecting the people and the terrorists more or less on the run. Today, those same terrorists have the Iraqi army on the run and have captured over 12,000 soldiers.

ISIS (the Islamic State of Iran and Syria), the terrorist organization which has been running rampage over Iraq, has declared themselves to now be IS, the Islamic State or in their lexicon, the Islamic Caliphate.

While this might not seem like much to us here in the United States, it’s actually quite a big deal. There hasn’t been a caliphate since 1023 AD. Since then, those who have used the name Caliph haven’t ruled over a Caliphate.

The Caliph is the spiritual and civil leader of all Islam. As such, they are the legal successor of Muhammad. In the case of the new Caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is a direct descendent of Muhammad, adding legitimacy to his claim to the throne. The question is, how much will the other Muslim nations accept this claim?

The caliphate could become a unifying factor for all Muslims, breaking down national boundaries, as well as disagreement between Sunni, Shia and other Muslim branches.

If it succeeds in doing this, the new caliphate could easily rocket up to becoming a major world power; one that is fueled and driven by the hate of the radical elements within Islam.

While that is troubling enough, in and of itself, the big problem for us isn’t whether they unify the Middle East, but rather, what they decide to do throughout the rest of the world.

There are few important countries without a major Muslim population and nobody knows how many of those groups are truly militant.

How Safe Are We?

Here in the United States, Muslims control at least 35 known military-type training camps. While the FBI is aware of these camps, there is nothing that they can do to shut them down. Before they could be shut down, they would have to do some illegal act to demonstrate their hostile intent.

Terrorist training looks no different than legitimate sport shooting. With the rising popularity of the sport airsoft, there are many people who are training in military tactics.

That doesn’t make their actions illegal any more than using guns that look like the real thing, even though they only shoot plastic BBs. With the inability to tell the difference between legitimate sport training and training with a more nefarious goal, police agencies at all levels can only watch; their hands are tied.

ISIS stared as a splinter group from Al Queda, the terrorist group which President Obama promised us was on the run and all but destroyed. They have already shown their true heart in their treatment of Iraqis who opposed them.

While their treatment of their fellow Iraqis has been brutal to say the least, that’s not the biggest concern for us here in the United States. The Islamic State has already stated their intent to attack the United States.

They have taken over chemical weapon production sites and materials which were discovered from Saddam Hussein’s reign. In addition, they have a goodly supply of United States Army equipment which was left in Iraq for use by the Iraqi Army.

Informal spokesmen from the Islamic State have already started tweeting about how they will be in New York within a month. While that may seem like an exaggeration, we really don’t know how many of them might already be inside our borders.

With the flood of illegal immigrants that are assaulting our southern borders and Obama’s efforts to hamstring the Border Patrol, literally thousands of them could have already sneaked into our country, without our knowing it.

Since U.S. law still states that one is innocent until proven guilty, nothing can be done about the 2.5 million Muslims who live in our country. While most probably want nothing more than to live peaceably, it is highly likely that there are some who are merely waiting for the opportunity to join the jihad and attack us.

Obama has people with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood in his administration and CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) is known to have ties to several terrorist organizations.

Of course, our quazi-Muzlim President and his administration are more supportive of these terrorists, than they are of law-abiding American citizens.

Law enforcement agencies are no longer allowed to view Muslims or those from the Middle East as terrorists, even though most of the world’s terrorists are from there. Instead of calling them terrorists, they are now calling law abiding patriots terrorists. So we can expect no true help from our left-wing government.

The question is, when and where will they act? There’s really no question as to whether or not they will, as they’ve already stated that they are going to attack the United States. To radical Muslims, you and I seem to be nothing more that animals to be slaughtered, and since we don’t obey Islam, we have no right to live.

Regardless of anything else, I am fairly certain we can expect an increase in terrorist activity, both here in the U.S. and around the world. As terrorists always do, they will strike quickly and viciously, in places where they are least expected, with the goal of causing as many casualties as they can.

The battle lines have already been drawn. Even though we can’t see them, we must be ready. If you don’t already have a concealed carry license, now would be a good time to get one.

If you don’t have guns in your home, it’s time to go shopping. There is no way to predict where the attacks will start or where they will lead. But it seems rather clear that there is no time to lose, as we can be sure that the attacks are on their way.

The spokesman for the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham, Abu Mohammed Al-Adnani, made the announcement in an audio statement posted online. Islamic extremists have long dreamed of recreating the Islamic state, or caliphate, that ruled over the Middle East for hundreds of years.

Abu Mohammed Al-Adnani said the group’s chief, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, is the new leader, or caliph, of the Islamic state. He called on those living in the areas under the organization’s control to swear allegiance to Al-Baghdadi and support him.

“The legality of all emirates, groups, states and organizations becomes null by the expansion of the caliph’s authority and the arrival of its troops to their areas,” Al-Adnani said.

He said that with the creation of the caliphate, the group was changing its name to just the Islamic State, dropping the mention of Iraq and Al-Sham.

It was unclear what immediate practical impact the declaration would have on the ground in Syria and Iraq, or among the wider global jihadi community.

Iraqi helicopter gunships struck suspected insurgent positions in Tikrit on Sunday as part of a government offensive to retake the northern city from Sunni militants led by ISIS, residents and officials said.

The Iraqi military opened its campaign to wrest back Tikrit, the hometown of former dictator Saddam Hussein, on Saturday with a multi-pronged assault spearheaded by ground troops backed by tanks and helicopters.

The predominantly Sunni city, a hotbed of antipathy toward Iraq’s Shiite-led government, is one of two major urban centres that fell to insurgents earlier this month during their lightning offensive across the country’s north and west.

The insurgents appeared to have repelled the military’s initial push for Tikrit, and remained in control of the city on Sunday, but clashes were taking place in the northern neighbourhood of Qadissiyah, two residents reached by telephone said.

Muhanad Saif Al-Din, who lives in the city centre, said he could see smoke rising from Qadissiyah, which borders the University of Tikrit, where troops brought by helicopter established a bridgehead two days ago. He said many of the militants in Tikrit had deployed to the city’s outskirts, apparently to blunt the military attack.

Military spokesman Qassim Al-Moussawi told reporters Sunday that the military was in full control of the university and had raised the Iraqi flag over the campus.

A provincial official reached by telephone confirmed that the insurgents retained control of most of Tikrit, and that the fighting was concentrated in Qadissiyah. He also reported clashes northwest of the city around an air base that previously served as a U.S. military facility known as Camp Speicher.

He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media.

The government is eager to make progress in Tikrit after weeks of demoralizing defeats at the hands of the Islamic State and its Sunni allies. The militants’ surge across the vast Sunni-dominated areas that stretch from Baghdad north and west to the Syrian and Jordanian borders has thrown Iraq into its deepest crisis since U.S. troops withdrew in December 2011.

More ominously, the insurgent blitz, which prompted Kurdish forces to assert long-held claims over disputed territory, has raised the prospect of Iraq being cleaved in three along sectarian and ethnic lines.

For embattled Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki, success in Tikrit could help restore a degree of faith his ability to stem the militant tide. Al-Maliki, a Shiite who has been widely accused of monopolizing power and alienating Iraq’s Sunni and Kurdish minorities, is under growing pressure to step aside. But he appears set on a third consecutive term as prime minister after his bloc won the most seats in April elections.

The government received a boost in its battle with the militants with the arrival in Baghdad late Saturday of five Sukhoi 25 warplanes purchased secondhand from Russia. The aircraft is designed to provide close air support to ground forces and to destroy mobile targets.

Iraqi air force commander Lt. Gen. Anwar Hama Amin said the military is “in urgent need of this type of aircraft during this difficult time.”

“These jets will enter service within a few days — the coming three or four days — in order to support the units and to fight the terrorist [ISIS] organization,” he said, referring to the Al-Qaeda breakaway Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham, which has spearheaded the Sunni militant offensive.

The planes could be deployed in the fight for Tikrit, a predominantly Sunni city of more than 200,000 some 130 kilometres north of Baghdad, where anger toward Iraq’s Shiite-led government runs deep.

The legality of all emirates, groups, states and organizations becomes null by the expansion of the caliph’s authority and the arrival of its troops to their areas

The Islamic State, which already controls vast swaths in northern and eastern Syria amid the chaos of that nation’s civil war, aims to erase the borders of the modern Middle East and impose its strict brand of Shariah law.

In Iraq, the group has formed an alliance of sorts with fellow Islamic militants as well as former members of Saddam’s Baath party, with all of them hoping to overthrow Al-Maliki’s Shiite-led government.

The militants have tapped into deep-seated discontent among Iraq’s Sunnis, who largely dominated the country until the U.S.-led overthrow of Saddam brought the Shiite majority to power. Since then, Sunnis have complained of discrimination and said they are unfairly targeted by the country’s security forces.
