The Global Terrorist Network Vs. The World
The Global Terrorist Network And Their Agenda: Al-Queda is back in the news and taking credit for murder across the planet. Here’s the latest statement from Al-Queda’s website as translated by CNN…
“By attempting to strike a U.S. plane in Saudi Arabia and by bombing a Jewish synagogue in Tunisia, destroying two ships in Yemen, attacking the Fialka base in Kuwait, and bombing nightclubs and whorehouses in Indonesia, al Qaeda has shown it has no qualms about attacking inside Arab and Islamic lands….This is provided that the target belongs to the Jewish-Crusader alliance.”
Saudi Arabia is denying us use of their bases for an attack on Iraq, France has been holding us up at the UN, and Indonesia was doing nothing about terrorism before the Bali attack. But, as far as al-Queda is concerned those nations are part of the “Jewish-Crusader alliance” which presumably means that their women and children are fair game for slaughter.
But al-Queda isn’t alone. They’ve got plenty of other willing allies. In another article on CNN today, it was revealed that…
“…that several top terrorist operatives met recently in the area — where the borders of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay intersect — to plan attacks against U.S. and Israeli targets in the Western hemisphere.
…Sources said the meetings, which took place in and around Ciudad del Este, were attended by representatives of Hezbollah and other groups sympathetic to Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda terrorist network.
…Other indications of the threat came from intelligence sources in the Middle East, who told CNN of a new terrorist effort aimed at U.S. and Israeli interests and coordinated by a man named Imad Mugniyeh.
…Argentine authorities have connected Mugniyeh to such groups as Hezbollah, Gamaa al Islamiya, and Islamic Jihad, all of which have been identified by the U.S. State Department as terrorist organizations.”
Hizbollah has ties to Iran and generally operates out of Lebanon. Gamaa al Islamiya is a smaller terrorist group that operates out of Egypt (w/out the support of the gov’t there). Islamic Jihad operates primarily out of the “disputed territories”, but they are headquartered in Syria.
As some of us have been saying all along, al-Queda isn’t the only group out there that we have to stop before they can murder the people they view as members of the “Jewish-Crusader alliance.” Destroying al-Queda in and of itself won’t get the job done. We’ve got to wipe out the entire global terrorist network and the regimes that continue to support them. Every one of them we kill makes the world safer for the rest of us.
