Syrian extremists threaten to 'destroy' Canada in online video

By Stewart Bell

'This is a message to Canada and all the American tyrants: We are coming and we will destroy you, with permission from Allah the almighty'

The most extreme armed faction in Syria has threatened to "destroy" Canada, as Western governments are struggling to deal with radicalized citizens infatuated with Al-Qaeda ideology.

Speaking in flawless English, a member of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant said in an online video that after fighting in the Middle East, the group would turn on North America.

"This is a message to Canada and all the American tyrants: We are coming and we will destroy you, with permission from Allah the almighty," the unidentified foreign fighter said.

While he did not divulge his nationality, he said he was an "emigrant" to Syria and his accent sounded North American. It is rare for jihadists to mention Canada in their propaganda unless they are Canadians.

Despite the threat, the young extremist did not himself seem to have the intention of travelling to Canada to conduct attacks: he followed up his brief speech by tossing his passport into a fire.

According to the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, about 30 Canadians have joined Syrian extremist factions like ISIL, which is trying to impose its militant version of Islamic law in the region.

But a Canadian who goes by the nom de guerre Abu Turab and calls himself a "jihadi" said in an online post there were "many bros from Canada" fighting in Syria. In another post, he said there were "maybe 100."

Officials are concerned about the security threat posed by foreign jihadist fighters should they return to Canada with terrorist training, combat experience and extreme anti-Western zeal.

Allah willing, after Syria, after Iraq, after the [Arabian] Peninsula, we are going for you, Barack Obama

About 130 radicalized Canadians are believed to remain active abroad, while 80 have returned to Canada from various conflict zones. "Some never achieve their intent and simply return home. Thus their depth of experience varies widely, making some individuals much more concerning than others," Michel Coulombe, the CSIS Director, testified recently.

The last Canadian known to have died in Syria was Damian Clairmont, a Muslim convert from Calgary. Another convert from Timmons, Ont., André Poulin, died last summer, around the same time that Ali Dirie, a convicted member of the Toronto 18 terrorist group, was killed.

"I made hijra [emigration] to this land for one reason alone," the English-speaking jihadist said in the new video, which was posted Sunday, according to the SITE Intelligence Group. "I left comfort for one reason alone - for Allah, glorified and exalted be He. And Allah willing, after Syria, after Iraq, after the [Arabian] Peninsula, we are going for you, Barack Obama."
Wow!!!

I guess he doesn't realize that Barack Obama is on his side and willing to help in any way he can.

... and again, Canadians are threatened ...

http://www.thestar.com/news/world/2..._to_kill_coalition_civilians_says_france.html

Islamic State group threatens Canadians: 'You will not feel secure even in your bedrooms'

A spokesman for the Islamic State militant group makes three angry mentions of Canada as he calls on Muslims worldwide to kill civilians of nations that join the fight.

In a rambling audio message released late Sunday, Islamic State group spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani says U.S. President Barack Obama's coalition will not be able to defeat the jihadis.

He talked of bringing war into the homes of Canadians, French and Australians, as their countries are allies of the hated Americans and Jewish people, whom he repeatedly demonizes.

"If you kill a disbelieving American or European - especially the spiteful and filthy French - or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him I any manner or way however it may be," said al-Adnani.

At some points, he directly threatened Canadians and others he considers the enemy.

"You will pay the price as you are afraid of travelling to any land," al-Adnani said. "Rather you will pay the price as you walk on your streets, turning right and left, fearing the Muslims. You will not feel secure even in your bedrooms. You will pay the price when this crusade of yours collapses, and thereafter we will strike you in your homeland, and you will never be able to harm anyone afterwards."

The translated transcript of al-Adnani's 42-minute audio message is 13 pages long. ( http://justpaste.it/aladnane )

Obama is currently working to form a global coalition to confront the Islamic State group, which controls large parts of Syria and Iraq. Canada has sent special forces soldiers to Iraq as part of the U.S.-led coalition.

The statement was released in Arabic by the Islamic State group's media arm, Al-Furqan, and appeared on militant sites used by the group. The speaker sounded like that of previous recordings attributed to al-Adnani, according to The Associated Press.

Al-Adnani called on people to prevent their sons from joining rebels that the U.S. plans to train to fight the Islamic State group. He says jihadis will make them "dig their graves with their own hands and have their heads cut off."

On Monday, France's Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said he was confident in France's security.

Cazeneuve said Monday "this threat to kill civilians, added to the execution of hostages and to the massacres, is yet another demonstration of the barbarism of these terrorists, justifying our fight without truce or pause."

He added that "France is not afraid because it is prepared to respond to their threats."

The Islamic State group is an Al Qaeda breakaway that has set up its own self-declared caliphate in areas it controls in Syria and Iraq. It rules by its harsh version of Islamic law.

The group has already beheaded two Americans and a British citizen it was holding. It is also threatening to behead more westerners.

Al-Adnani called on people to prevent their sons from joining rebels that the U.S. plans to train to fight the group. He said jihadis will make them "dig their graves with their own hands and have their heads cut off and homes destroyed."
Same story, but, this time from Australia ..

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/nat...067029252?nk=9ddb889f61cdcb215637d50256440f4f

ISLAMIC State has publicly *ordered terrorist attacks on Australian civilians, telling would-be jihadis not to seek any advice *before they kill and claiming such acts are justified because the *nation's military is part of a US-led coalition fighting the group.

Less than a week after an *alleged Islamic State-prompted plot to behead a random civilian in Sydney was thwarted, the group's top spokesman, Sheik Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, called for homegrown terrorist attacks in the West in reaction to military *action against his group.

In a 42-minute speech, the Syrian-born propagandist named Australia several times as an enemy of Islamic State, saying it had no justification for joining the attack on the group in Syria and Iraq, before exalting "mujahideen" to "rise and defend your state from your place wherever you may be".

Australian authorities are taking the statement and the threat seriously. While Western intelligence agencies have warned *Islamic State was attempting to inspire attacks outside of Syria and Iraq, experts say Adnani's speech is the first public call for violence against specific nations - particularly France, after it conducted airstrikes on the group on Friday.

"If you can kill a disbelieving American or European - especially the spiteful and filthy French - or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be," Adnani said.

"Do not ask for anyone's advice and do not seek anyone's verdict. Kill the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military, for they have the same ruling."

Specific killing methods are mentioned, with those "not able to find an IED or bullet" encouraged to use a knife to "slaughter" or a rock to "bash" a victim to death. Other methods include running someone down in a car or poisoning a potential victim. At least one Australian has posted links to the speech on Twitter.

A government spokesman said the speech justified the strengthened security regime being implemented.

"Australian agencies regard the statement issued today by ISIL *(Islamic State) calling for attacks against members of the international coalition, including Australians, as genuine," the spokesman said. "ISIL will claim that our *involvement in this international effort is the reason they are targeting us, but these people do not *attack us for what we do, but for who we are and how we live."

In rhetorical questions directed towards "soldiers of the Islamic State", Adnani had said: "Why have the nations of disbelief entrenched together against you?"

"What threat do you pose to the distant place of Australia for it to send its legions towards you?" a translation of the speech said.

Tobias Feakin, a national *security analyst for the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, said it was too early to speculate whether Australians would be inspired to carry out attacks.

But Rodger Shanahan from the Lowy Institute did not believe many in the West would respond to the calls. "Certainly he calls specifically for people to take some actions and he's named some countries," he said. "But how influential that is ... is a major question. I'd argue, not much."

'Inevitable' Canada will face ISIS-style terror plot at home: Former CSIS operative

OTTAWA - A former CSIS operative says it's "inevitable" Canada will face a terror plot similar to the one thwarted Thursday in Australia, where authorities say a group of extremists planned to publicly behead a random person in Sydney.

It took more than 800 police officers to stop what's being called the largest terror plot in Australia's history, which Prime Minister Tony Abbott said included calls for "demonstration killings." Police arrested 15 suspects.

"It could be a beheading, a surprise attack on random people, it could be many things, but you will see something like that happening here," former CSIS security intelligence operative Mubin Shaikh told QMI Agency.

He said he believes the RCMP and CSIS are "doing the best they can" and cited several thwarted homegrown terror plots, including that of Ottawa's Hiva Alizadeh, 33, who was sentenced this week to 24 years in prison for trying to organize attacks on Canadian targets.

Despite those successes, Shaikh said a quote from the Irish Republican Army when it was targeting then-British prime minister Margaret Thatcher highlights the problem.

"They said, 'You have to be lucky every time; we have to be lucky once,'" Shaikh said.

Australia, like Canada, has been struggling with nationals who've been "self-radicalized" at home and chosen to go abroad to join groups such as Islamic State (ISIS) to fight as Islamists. There is growing concern about them bringing their jihad home.

The RCMP said it's devising a "countering violent extremism program which consists of working with local law enforcement as well as domestic and international partners to prevent individuals from engaging in terrorist and other criminal activity."

Liberal foreign affairs critic Marc Garneau said he's "very concerned" about possible terror attacks in Canada.

"That's one of the reasons we support sending special forces (to Iraq)," he said.

CTV put an expanded story up about this as well.

http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/islami...ns-canadians-in-new-audio-recording-1.2018135

In response to a new audio recording encouraging Islamic State supporters to kill Canadians, Prime Minister Stephen Harper says Canada is continually looking at new ways to fight security threats from both organizations and individuals.

Speaking at a news conference on Monday, Harper told reporters that Canadian security agencies are constantly monitoring and tracking security threats. The government is also looking at ways to strengthen laws and co-operate with allies to mitigate threats, Harper said.

He added that Canada's military contribution to a U.S.-led coalition to fight the Islamic State -- also known as ISIS or ISIL -- is an "important" part of fighting the extremist group.

The Islamic State has released a 42-minute propaganda audio recording, during which followers are urged to kill Canadians.

The commitment of Canadian special ops forces to serve in a non-combative advisory mission, as well as humanitarian aid, is a critical component to fighting IS, he said.

Harper added: "We are continuing our dialogue with our allies to identify ways that we can assist in responding to what is a genuinely serious threat."

Earlier Monday, the prime minister's director of communications, Jason MacDonald, said that Canada will work with allies to fight back against the threat posed by IS.

"ISIS represents a threat not just to stability in the Middle East, but to global security. That is why we have taken the steps we have to provide humanitarian aid to Iraqis in the path of ISIS' barbarous rampage, and military aid to Iraqi security forces," he said.

"Like our allies we will not be cowed by threats while innocent children, women, men and religious minorities live in fear of these terrorists."

Targeting Canadians

On Sunday, a spokesperson for the Islamic State released a 42-minute propaganda audio recording, during which followers are urged to kill Canadians, Americans, and any other citizens of countries taking part in a U.S-led coalition to fight the group.

In an English translation of the recording, which was posted online, spokesperson Abu Muhammad al-Adnani encourages IS followers to kill any "disbelievers," whether they are civilians or part of the military.

"If you can kill a disbelieving American or European - especially the spiteful and filthy French - or an Australian or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State … kill him in any manner or way however it may be," the translation reads.

Terrorism expert Mubin Shaikh says an attack on Canada by the Islamic State would likely come against undefended "soft targets," and not well-defended government buildings. "It's usually places we don't expect," Shaikh told CTV News on Monday. "Everyday places that we go. Schools campuses, shopping malls, grocery stores."

He cited the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing as an example of a "soft target" terrorist attack.

Shaikh, a former undercover operative for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, helped expose an al Qaeda-inspired terror plot in Ontario in 2006.

The U.S. is building a coalition to stop the spread of the violent Islamic State extremist group, which has seized large parts of Syria and Iraq. IS aims to establish a state, or caliphate, in the region.

The group has claimed responsibility for three beheadings of U.S. and U.K. citizens who were working in the area. Over the weekend, the UN said the IS advance forced more than 100,000 Syrians to seek refuge in Turkey.

Canada has committed special ops forces to take part in a non-combative military adviser mission in Iraq. Harper confirmed last week that 69 special forces commandos have been sent to the country to advise and assist Iraqi and Kurdish forces who are fighting IS soldiers.

Over the weekend, Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander said that Ottawa has started revoking travel documents for those who go overseas to fight with IS or other militant groups.

More than 130 Canadians are believed to be fighting with extremist groups abroad. The government says it's tracking another 80 Canadians who have returned home after fighting with radical groups abroad.

"Not all returnees are going to be threats, but certainly, it's a very real possibility," Shaikh said.

Threat level rising

John Thompson, a terrorism expert with Strategic Capital Intelligence, says the threat level is rising.

"We've seen the continuous development of capability to recruit more people inside our societies, activate them and turn them against us," Thompson told CTV's News Channel on Monday.

Thompson said Ottawa's move to revoke the travel documents of known terrorists overseas will be "a major inconvenience" for those Canadians currently fighting with the Islamic State.

"On the other hand, that will mean that they've got nowhere to go but to stay with the jihad movement until we can close the file on them," he said.

Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney told CTV's Power Play Monday that the government is taking every measure to keep tabs on Canadians who may be involved in terrorism both abroad and on Canadian soil, by working in partnership with agencies such as the CBSA, RCMP and CSIS.

The government is also reaching out to engage community leaders and family members to help look for warning signs within communities "so that we can detect those people that could represent a threat to Canadian safety," Blaney said.

Centre for International Governance Innovation's Bessma Momani said while the new video indicated that Ottawa and intelligence authorities must be vigilant, the Islamic State is not necessarily targeting Canadians or allied forces right now.

"Most experts would say that (IS) is trying to consolidate power," Momani said. "It's more worried, if you will, about making sure that it has its territory and doesn't have internal threat, before it would take on external challenges."

... and in further news ...

The first reported attack has happened in Australia.

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/la...069653202?nk=ee334c4c2429dd2cac2b51d6ea577353

Police on high alert for reprisals after terror suspect shot dead

POLICE are on high alert for revenge attacks against more officers following the shooting of teenage terror suspect Numan Haider.

As Chief Commissioner Ken Lay wrote to Victoria's 13,000 police officers, warning them to be prepared for any situation, it emerged:

AN EYEWITNESS has made a statement to police that another man in Islamic dress was near the scene in Endeavour Hills where the attack took place.

POLICE said they had no evidence of other parties being involved in the attack on the police, but that the investigation was in its early stages and interviews with family, friends and associates were being conducted.

SOURCES said the teen had earlier tried to lure the police to other locations, including a Hungry Jack's.

HAIDER had been picked up in an intelligence sweep of "chatter" about potential threats to Parliament House, and had followed the movements of government officials, including Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

THE teen's passport was cancelled a week ago after he made plans to fly to Syria.

HIS rage may have been further* fuelled by raids on his "Muslim brothers" in Sydney and a romance with a woman whom he converted to Islam that failed in recent weeks.

DEFENCE Force families were told to be on high alert after a soldier's house was approached in Sydney.

AND while police said there had been no specific threats about beheadings some police suspect that this was Haider's intention, and that it occur in a public place or on film.

The Islamic Council of Victoria refused to immediately condemn the dead teenager's actions.

Mr Lay defended the counter-terrorism officers' handling of the confrontation with Haider.

Last Thursday, Haider, 18, was one of five people seen thrusting brochures into shoppers' hands at the Dandenong mall, where he was often seen wearing an Islamic* State-style flag.

Witnesses recalled seeing up to 15 police, who were in the mall, surround the teen outside the Hub arcade.

On Tuesday night Haider, who had an ISIL-style flag on him and a large knife tucked into his belt, attacked the two counter-terrorism agents with a small blade after shaking hands with them.

The Afghanistan-born teen, who has links to extremist* Islamic group Al-Furqan, was hit in the head by a single bullet after stabbing the AFP agent in the head, neck and abdomen.

The Herald Sun has learned that the officers, whose identities will not be released, had attempted to find the teen at his Endeavour Hills home, which they searched, before arranging with him to meet outside the police station.

Haider's family would not comment about the incident yesterday. Relatives said his 20-year-old brother was "angry'' and that his mother, Suraya, had barely spoken since learning of her son's death.

A relative said the family had contacted police asking for Haider's body to be returned* for burial.

Mr Abbott said the incident showed some Australians were capable "of very extreme acts" and would do their countrymen harm.

"The suspect did mount a fierce attack on both officers,"** Mr Abbott said.

"Obviously, this indicates that there are people in our community who are capable of very extreme acts. It also indicates that the police will be constantly vigilant to protect us against people who would do us harm," said the PM, who is in New York.

An eyewitness who saw a Muslim man in Islamic dress at the scene of the attack, said he saw Haider backing his Nissan Pulsar into a parking space and getting out shortly before the rampage.

The witness, who did not want to be named, said the last thing he heard was an officer* shouting "put it down, put it down'' before a shot rang out.

"He was all over the shop when he was reversing ... it's like he was trying to (position his car) to get away.

"There were other people there - a man in white, an Islamic man, 50 to 60 metres away," he said.

"He may not have had anything to do with it. There were a couple of people there and that one guy stuck out."


Those close to the investigation said the officers had called the teenager to ask him for a meeting to give him some "life advice''.

Mr Lay yesterday said that the two police officers had given Haider options about a meeting, and he had also given them options, before it was decided to meet outside the Endeavour Hills police station.

Haider told the police officers he did not want to meet in the foyer, after becoming aware they had searched his house on Tuesday.

It is believed the officers had tried to talk to Haider at his home but he was out.

Several meeting points had been discussed with Haider, including at a local Hungry Jack's.

Several sources told the Herald Sun investigators are pursuing suspicions that up to three parties were involved in Tuesday's unprovoked attack.

Last Thursday, Haider was seen outside Dandenong Plaza, wearing camouflage pants and waving a black and white flag.

Intelligence services had found that Haider wanted to go to Syria to join the civil war against Bashar al-Assad's Government this month. This resulted in the suspension of his passport last week.

Both wounded police officers have had surgery, and were in stable conditions.

Police said they'd had "no choice" but to shoot the teen dead after being stabbed.

Mr Abbott was briefed on the incident while travelling to New York to attend United Nations meetings dealing with the Islamic State threat.

Harun Mehicevic, the leader of Al-Furqan in Springvale, refused to confirm that Haider had been involved with the group.

Mr Lay has written to all Victoria Police members warning them to be alert.

I think that there is a "testing of the systems" happening right now ... see what they can get away with and what they need to keep hidden till such time as the attacks are given the go-ahead by the leaders.


I believe that the testing of the systems includes some of the stories posted where someone's grocery-bag is left with a pressure-cooker at the C-Train stations. Some of the testing is in the pipe-bombs (don't think it is just high-school kids playing around with information they found on the 'net).

We peace loving Westerners, actually our North American governments, are reigning terror down on them in provocation in the form of bombs and drones. They will always be at war with one another. Both sides have eternally worked to get outside powers further involved and now we are directly involved.

Isn't this all a result of multiculturalism in general? American government (don't know about Canadian) allows pregnant foreigners to show up with their prenatal records in hand in the 8th month to give birth to a child who will now be a dual citizen who returns back to their land where they see the corruptions they suffer from back home with Western collusion.
