Trove of Bin Laden documents reveal Iran’s secret dealings with al-Qaeda

A newly released trove of documents recovered from Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan compound have revealed “secret dealings” between Iran and al-Qaeda.

Nearly half a million files found on the computer seized in the May 2, 2011, US raid on the al-Qaeda founder’s hideout in Abbottabad were released by the CIA on Wednesday.

A never-before-seen 19-page document purportedly written by a senior member of al-Qaeda details an arrangement between Iran and members of the group to strike American interests in “Saudi Arabia and the Gulf.”

In exchange, Shia Iran offered Sunni militants “money, arms” and “training in Hizbollah camps in Lebanon.”

Justin is so keen on Iran, this will have him panting!

US Antifa and other Leftist groups met in Germany with al-Qaeda and ISIS to plot Trump’s destruction

These hard-Leftist groups, although they claim to be against fascism, are fascist to the core, wanting to shut down, violently if necessary, anyone who disagrees with them. They claim to be against hate, but are more hateful than anyone, and so they see natural allies in al-Qaeda and the Islamic State. Both hate the West, both hate the U.S., both hate the Judeo-Christian tradition, so they see each other as kindred spirits.

ISIS collapse: al-Qaeda recruits fleeing jihadists to renew their terror campaign

Islamic State and other groups are planning another terror attack of September 11 magnitude, a top US security chief has warned.

Elaine Duke, Donald Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security, said jihadists were using knife and van attacks to keep their members engaged and their finances flowing as they plot another “big explosion”, The Times reports.

Mrs Duke said at the US embassy in London that intelligence is pointing to extremists plotting to take down planes to inflict mass civilian casualties.

She said IS is currently in an “interim” period focusing on a much bigger endgame.

‘Burma Calling’: Al-Qaeda Orders Jihadists to Rescue Rohingya ‘by Force’

Al-Qaeda has called for jihadists to report to Burma to fight for the Rohingya minority as they fall victim to “a conspiracy hatched by the forces of International Disbelief against Islam and Muslims.”

In a statement issued by al-Qaeda’s general leadership, the terror group said the “conspiracy” is “marked by the usurpation of the rights of Muslims, occupation of their lands, defilement of their holy places, all under the guise of fighting terrorism!”

Al Qaeda has drawn a bullseye on a new American target: Subway trains

Al Qaeda is about to take on a new target––America’s trains––in an upcoming edition of its terror magazine, Inspire.

Issue No. 17 is headlined, “Train Derail Operations,” and will spell out ways to create rail disasters in a transportation system that lacks the stiff security procedures of airline travel.

It’s competing Sunni extremists group, the Islamic State, for more than a year has advocated using vehicles to mow down innocents. Its murderous followers have weaponized vehicles in Nice, Berlin and London, creating hundred of deaths and injuries.

Adding trains to the terrorist’s priority list would put at risk virtually every mode of transportation and placed added pressure on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Osama bin Laden’s son criticises Saudi royal family in campaign to become new al-Qaeda leader

Hamza Bin Laden – The Justin Trudeau of the Muslim world.

Osama bin Laden’s son Hamza has issued chilling messages aimed at the Saudi royal family.

The 28-year-old, labelled the ‘poster boy’ for al Qaeda, is reportedly poised to lead the terror organisation in a bid to avenge his father’s death.

The first video message from Hamza released a year ago hailed lone-wolf terror attacks and called for an uprising in the kingdom, according to AlMonitor.

The second accused Abdul-Aziz bin Rahman Al Saud – the first monarch and founder of Saudi Arabia – of being a British agent.

The Most ‘Consequential’ Fight In Syria Might Be One You’ve Never Heard Of

Al-Qaida’s Syrian affiliate is consolidating territory in a major clash with a rival rebel group and could make the terror group a more formidable threat in the longer term than the Islamic State, U.S.-based intelligence advisory firm The Soufan Group (TSG) warns.

The warning comes amid a major clash between al-Qaida affiliate, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), and another Islamist rebel group in the province that the Syrian regime and its allies do not largely control. The U.S., by and large, is focused on defeating ISIS in other areas of Syria and has largely given over a leadership role for post-ISIS Syria to Russia, Iran and the Syrian regime.

Al-Qaeda has a U.S. hostage in Africa, and he is being hidden

Al-Qaeda factions in Africa have been displaying at least six of their hostages on camera in recent propaganda videos, in what amounts to a bid to drum up ransom business. But an American man who is also being held has not yet appeared.

In October, militants allied to Al-Qaeda kidnapped Jeffery Woodke, a 56-year-old aid worker, from his residence in the town of Abalak, Niger. He had worked in the country for decades and was helping with drought relief and food shortages. The mayor of his town decried his kidnapping as a “devastating shock” to its residents.

As ISIS Caliphate Crumbles, al-Qaeda Coaxing Western Recruits to Syria

A new English-language al-Qaeda magazine encourages westerners to leave their lands of “pointless TV shows, massive dance parties and endless fast-food restaurants” and come to Syria to fight for the terror group.

The call to action comes as the Islamic State’s declared caliphate is seeing its territory crumble, and the 50,000-strong Syrian Democratic Forces — an anti-ISIS, anti-Qaeda, anti-Assad coalition of Kurdish, Arab, Assyrian etc. men and women fighters — has entered the ISIS capital of Raqqa after a lengthy drive to retake the city.

How Hamza bin Laden, Osama’s son, is helping Al-Qaeda stage a deadly comeback

Al Qaeda has stepped out of the shadow of the Islamic State (ISIS), promoting its brand of terror with a new leader and a comprehensive list of attack priorities.

Hamza Bin Laden, Osama Bin Laden’s son and heir, released a 10-minute video called, “Advice for Martyrdom-Seekers in the West,” on May 14 at an opportune time for Al Qaeda after months of media coverage of the ever-shrinking ISIS hold in Syria and Iraq.

Whether the video catalyzed attacks in Manchester or London is unknown, but it’s expected to ratchet up the frequency of so-called lone wolf or inspired attacks in the West in coming weeks. Understanding this video and analyzing Hamza’s messages are key to countering the threats coming from the Al Qaeda, particularly at a time when Al Qaeda has been rebranding itself and widening its network among Salafist jihadi rings.
