16 November 2015 (TSR) – The night of Friday the 13th, over 120 people were killed by terrorists in a well-coordinated Mumbai-style assault in Paris. France declared a national state of emergency and tightened its borders as a result.
According to a report by Reuters:
A Paris city hall official said four gunmen systematically slaughtered at least 87 young people attending a rock concert at the Bataclan music hall. Anti-terrorist commandos eventually launched an assault on the building. The gunmen detonated explosive belts and dozens of shocked survivors were rescued.
Some 40 more people were killed in five other attacks in the Paris region, the city hall official said, including an apparent double suicide bombing outside the national stadium, where Hollande and the German foreign minister were watching a friendly soccer international. Some 200 people were injured.
On Saturday morning, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks across Paris, saying ‘eight brothers wearing explosive belts and carrying assault rifles’ conducted a ‘blessed attack on… Crusader France’.
A religious Zionist cleric from a Jewish settlement on the West Bank told mourners on Saturday during the funeral of an Israeli father and son gunned down by Palestinian terrorists that the attacks in Paris were deserved due to what Europeans “did to our people 70 years ago,” Jerusalem Post reported.
The quote from Dov Lior, the chief rabbi of the Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba, was first reported by the Walla! news agency.
“The wicked ones in blood-soaked Europe deserve it for what they did to our people 70 years ago,” Lior said
On Sunday evening the French defence ministry announced that the country’s warplanes had bombed Islamic State’s stronghold in Syria’s Raqa, destroying a command post and a training camp, the defence ministry said. Ten fighter jets were involved, dropping 20 bombs.
Reuters reported that the incident triggered New York, Boston, New Jersey and other cities in the United States to bolster security and were on heightened alert at all of the agency’s bridges, tunnels and rail facilities, as well as at the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan. It said it was increasing patrols and checking of buses and trains and passengers’ bags.
India followed suit and increased vigil and post additional police personnel all embassies, particularly outside the French embassy, and high commissions in New Delhi and consulates in different cities across the country.
Security has been beefed up along all Jewish worship places including synagogues in India, ‘Chabad Houses’ which is being frequented by Israeli tourists.
Governments across Europe raised threat levels, tightened security at public places, The Wall Street Journal reported.
United Kingdom beefed up security as well with more checks at Britain’s borders and more police officers deployed on the streets.
The Engineering Revealed
There is a number of startling revelations have come out since the attack. First, the “hacktivist” group Anonymous released a video saying that just hours before the attacks, Facebook shut down their “#OpISIS” terrorist reporting group. That group reported sock puppet accounts being used by the terrorist group to recruit people into its ranks. For whatever reason, Facebook decided to put an end to Anonymous exposing ISIS recruiters (at least until they make a new group doing the same thing).
The French authorities were fully aware and had a forewarning of the imminent attack.
“We were expecting something. We knew it was coming,” one western diplomat told BuzzFeed News on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the subject. “The fact that we failed to stop it is definitely a failure. But you can’t imagine the number of attacks we have stopped. This was the nightmare scenario. The targets were all soft targets. How can you protect against people determined to attack a bar or concert?”
Yet the French authorities did not do anything to avert the catastrophic event.
A highly secure and well guarded by patrols military instillation in the southern French town of Miramas was robbed of close to 200 detonators, 40 grenades and one “pile” of plastic explosives in July. Yet the French intelligence authorities were fully aware it was not a simple criminal theft, but something much more sinister.
The investigators cited the thieves as “military or former military men who knew the place” who cut through fences to get into the compound, reported by French radio station Europe 1.
Senior Iraqi Intelligence officials knew of the attacks in Paris days in advance, the Associated Press learned. The officials sent a dispatch to French Intelligence that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of ISIS, ordered an offensive against coalition countries fighting against them in Iraq and Syria, as well as on Iran and Russia, “through bombings or assassinations or hostage taking in the coming days.”
The US-led coalition in Syria was apparently told by Iraqi security sources that 24 extremists were involved in the terror operation planned in the ISIS capital Raqqa and it would involve 19 attackers including five others including bombmakers and planners. No detail was given of when or where an attack might take place.
According to Haaretz,
However, six senior Iraqi officials corroborated the information in the dispatch, a copy of which was obtained by the AP, and four of these intelligence officials said they also warned France specifically of a potential attack. Two officials told the AP that France was warned beforehand of details that French authorities have yet to make public.
Among them: that the Paris attacks appear to have been planned in Raqqa, Syria — the Islamic State’s de-facto capital — where the attackers were trained specifically for this operation and with the intention of sending them to France.
The officials also said a sleeper cell in France then met with the attackers after their training and helped them to execute the plan.
There were 24 people involved in the operation, they said: 19 attackers and five others in charge of logistics and planning.
The officials all spoke anonymously because they are not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
Then, on Saturday, information surfaced that implicates the French National Police and German BKA federal police, along with the German BND federal intelligence service, in something even more disturbing.
The law enforcement agencies met together “to discuss an imminent pre-planned terrorist attack on Paris weeks ago,” according to The Free Thought Project.
According to a report by SOFREP:
Industrial targets were already being probed by suspected terrorists in France, and a bomb which failed to detonate was found in one facility. The explosives employed were those stolen in a little-publicized theft from a French military armory months prior. The French and German federal police and intelligence services strongly believed at that time that terrorists were casing soft targets inside Paris and that it was, “A matter of when, not if.” The only point of contention within the French security services was whether or not the target would be soft (civilian) or hard (military, government, industrial) in nature.
Land Destroyer’s Tony Cartalucci gives a good analysis regarding the similarity of Paris Attacks to Charlie Hebdo incident,
Similarly in January 2015 in the wake of the “Charlie Hebdo attack” which left 12 dead, it was revealed that French security agencies tracked the perpetrators for nearly a decade beforehand, having arrested at least one terrorist a total of two times, incarcerating him at least once, tracked two of them overseas where they had trained with known terrorist organizations and possibly fought alongside them in Syria, before tracking them back to French territory.
Astoundingly, French security agencies never moved in on the terrorists, claiming that after a decade of tracking them, they had finally decided to close their case for precisely the amount of time needed for them to plan and execute their grand finale.
FAKE Syrian passports Flood Europe and Germany Knew
Focus news service reproduced the leaked German government memo which revealed that invaders are buying genuine blank documents which have been seized from government offices in ISIS-occupied cities in Syria.
According to the German government memo, these genuine documents have now “fallen into the hands of criminal gangs” who are selling them to the hordes of invaders claiming “asylum” in Germany and elsewhere, complicating the task of those officials entrusted with determining which claims are “real” or not.
The letter published by Focus originated with the German embassy in Lebanon, Beirut. That embassy is charged with authenticating documents submitted by the invaders in Germany. Confirmed as genuine by the German government, the letter’s subject line is “Syrian passports and official documents.”
In addition, the embassy letter warned, other documentation being used in the place of passports or identity documents—such as diplomas or academic qualifications—are also being forged using original blank documentation.
It goes on to state that there are “large numbers of fake certificates among the documents submitted for authentication” and that “blank documents, software, equipment, and stamps have come into the possession of criminal organizations as a result of the war in Syria,” and that a booming “trade with passports is taking place.”
The letter concludes that the “meaningfulness and probative value of Syrian travel and identity documents must be questioned, even if there are no signs of obvious forgery.”
In September this year, a Dutch journalist purchased a “real” fake Syrian passport using a photograph of the Prime Minister of the Netherlands, which was then printed on it.
Reporter Harald Doornbos said that a forged passport and an ID card cost him $825. He only had to make a phone call to order the fake documents, and was able to pick them up within 40 hours.
In Greece, he shows his false Syrian passport to the authorities. Since the passport is fake, under the fake name, the Greeks have no idea that they are not dealing with a Syrian refugee but a member of ISIS or Al-Qaeda,” Nieuwe Revu wrote, adding that from Greece such illegal travelers proceed to Hungary through Macedonia and Serbia, and then “travel without control to the other Schengen States.
The first confirmed case of fake Syrian passports was reported from Norway, where that country’s secret service detected—by chance—a large group of Islamic State and Al-Nusra Front terrorists masquerading as “refugees,” according to the Dagbladet newspaper.
Meanwhile, the Russian Federal News Agency has reported that a five-man strong ISIS cell was arrested on the Bulgarian–Macedonian border.
The suspects were stopped by a border patrol and tried to bribe the border guards by offering them thousands of dollars.
According to the report, their mobile phones contained pictures of decapitated people, jihadist prayers, and video clips promoting the ISIL terrorist group.
Earlier, Turkish intelligence service warned that “up to 3,000 trained jihadists are seeking to cross into Turkey from Syria and Iraq” and were intending to go through Bulgaria and Hungry into western Europe.
“The jihadist militants could be working on armed or bombing attacks in Ankara and Istanbul against the diplomatic missions of the countries involved in the US-led anti-ISIL [ISIS] coalition,” said the Hurriyet newspaper, citing the Turkish National Intelligence Organization.
Earlier this year, a Libyan government adviser warned that ISIS was intending to “smuggle militants” into Europe in boats from Libya.
Abdul Basit Haroun told the BBC’s Radio 5 Live that IS militants were taking advantage of the crisis by using the boats “for their people who they want to send to Europe, as the European police don’t know who is from IS and who is a normal refugee or not.”
Meanwhile, the Austrian Kronen Zeitung newspaper has quoted EU frontier patrol (“Frontex”) chief Fabrice Leggeri as warning that there was now a large market for forged Syrian passports.
“”A lot of people get fake Syrian papers in Turkey, because they know that they’ll get asylum in the EU that way,” Leggeri said.
“People who use these fake passports, mostly speak Arabic. They come from North Africa, the Middle East, but are economic refugees,” he added.
“This stream of refugees has overwhelmed authorities and we have no clear picture of the origin of these people.”
Further confirmation of ISIS plans to infiltrate cells into Europe has come with the release on twitter of photographs taken in Rome by ISIS supporters showing hand-written slogans and threats pictured against well-known backdrops in the Italian capital.
The origin of the current invasion of Europe lies in the illegal invasion of Iraq, which was created by the US’s Jewish Lobby, and which sparked off a domino effect of Islamic radicalism which has now consumed much of the Middle East.
Unmasking ISIS: The French Government Need Support For Military Intervention
There is no War on Terror and the origin of terrorism was orchestrated by US-NATO as affirmed by Russia Today’s interview with political author Gearoid O. Colmain. The Paris Attack is to drum up support for more military intervention in Syria. The game is almost lost and the French government wants to get in the game to prop up “moderate” Syrian rebels, who are actually Al Qaeda.
Tony Cartalucci gives another succinct explanation of what is really going behind the propaganda:
With the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS) emerging as being behind the attack, the question that remains is, who is behind ISIS itself? While the West has attempted to maintain the terrorist organization possesses almost mythological abilities, capable of sustaining combat operations against Syria, Iraq, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, support from Iran, and now the Russian military – all while carrying out large-scale, high-profile terrorist attacks across the globe – it is clear that ISIS is the recipient of immense multinational state-sponsorship.
The rise of ISIS was revealed as early as 2007 in interviews conducted by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh in his 9-page report “The Redirection.” The interviews revealed a plan to destabilize and overthrow the government of Syria through the use of sectarian extremists – more specifically, Al Qaeda – with arms and funds laundered through America’s oldest and stanchest regional ally, Saudi Arabia.
A more recent Department of Intelligence Agency (DIA) report drafted in 2012 (.pdf) admitted:
If the situation unravels there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).
The DIA report enumerates precisely who these “supporting powers” are:
The West, Gulf countries, and Turkey support the opposition; while Russia, China, and Iran support the regime.
And to this day, by simply looking at any number of maps detailing territory held by various factions amid the Syrian conflict, it is clear that ISIS is not a “state” of any kind, but an ongoing invasion emanating from NATO-member Turkey’s territory, with its primary supply corridor crossing the Turkish-Syrian border between the Syrian town of Ad Dana and the western bank of the Euphrates River, a supply corridor now increasingly shrinking.
There is also an intellectual terrorism according to O’ Colmain. We are in a period of where truth is being suppressed and cracking down on rational news reporting.
Right now, the only way to keep people down is to promote Divide and Conquer mentality. If this continues, we are seeing a widespread martial law, says O’ Colmain.
According to the Jerusalem Post the co-founder of the Free Gaza movement, Mary Hughes-Thompson, raised the possibility that Israel was behind the deadly attacks that hit Paris on Friday night, killing 128 people.
“I haven’t accused Israel of involvement. Still, Bibi [Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu] is upset about the European settlement boycott. So who knows,” Hughes-Thompson tweeted following the attacks on 13 November.
The “European settlement boycott” refers to new labelling guidelines for goods produced in the areas captured by Israel in the 1967 Six Day War which the EU approved earlier this week.
Following the Paris terrorist attack on the Charlie Hebdo newspaper in January, Hughes-Thompson similarly hinted at Israeli involvement.
BACKGROUND: The Timeline of events according to DailyMail.
FIRST TWO ATTACKS: STADE DE FRANCE
- The attacks began at 8.17pm GMT at the Stade de France where the French football team was hosting Germany in an international friendly.
- The game was being watched by 80,000 spectators, among them was President Francois Hollande who had to be evacuated from the stadium.
- The first explosion, a suicide bombing, was at an entrance to the stadium. A suicide bomber approached the gate with a match ticket when he was frisked by a security guard who turned him away.
- He backed away from the gate and detonated his vest at about 8.20pm GMT near Gate D of the stadium, killing one other person. A passport with the name Ahmed Almuhamed, 25, from Syria, was allegedly found nearby.
- A second suicide bomber, Bilal Hadfi, 20, blew himself up near Gate H several minutes later. No one else was reported killed. Hadfi is said to have fought with ISIS in Syria.
THIRD ATTACK: LE PETIT CAMBODGE AND LE CARILLON BAR
- At 8.25pm GMT a separate team of gunmen arrived in a Black Seat and attacked diners at popular Cambodian restaurant Le Petit Cambodge and Le Carillon bar in the trendy Canal Saint-Martin area of eastern Paris, killing 15.
FOURTH ATTACK: LA CASA NOSTRA PIZZERIA AND LA BELLE EQUIPE BAR
- The same unit then drove about 500 yards to La Casa Nostra pizzeria and opened fire on diners on the terrace of the restaurant, killing at least five people.
- From there, the militants drove around a mile south-east – apparently past the area of the Bataclan concert venue – to launch another attack, this time on La Belle Equipe bar in Rue de Charonne. At least 19 people died after the terrace was sprayed with bullets at 8.38pm GMT. The attackers then drove off.
FIFTH ATTACK: CAFÉ ‘COMPTOIR VOLTAIRE’
- Five minutes later, Ibrahim Abdeslam, 31, set off a suicide vest outside the outside cafe ‘Comptoir Voltaire’ on the Boulevard Voltaire and close to the Bataclan theatre. He hired a black Seat car used in the attack.
SIXTH ATTACK: BATACLAN MUSIC HALL
- At 8.49pm GMT, the third group (believed to be three men and a woman) armed with AK-47s stormed the Bataclan music hall and began shooting members of the crowd. Survivors claim three blew themselves up and a fourth person was shot dead by police before they could detonate their bomb.
SEVENTH ATTACK: NEAR STADE DE FRANCE
- At around 8.50pm GMT a third blast took place near the Stade de France, this time by a McDonald’s restaurant on the fringes of the stadium. The boom caused terror among spectators who had already been attempting to flee the stadium following the first two explosions. The attacker who detonated his suicide vest was identified as a 20-year-old French man living in Belgium.
