Al-Qaeda leader who helped mastermind 9/11 calls on Muslims around the world to ‘declare war’ on the US and warns ‘America is the number one enemy of Muslims’, on the 9/11 anniversary
The leader of al-Qaeda called for more terror attacks to take place against the United States on the anniversary of 9/11.
Ayman al-Zawahiri declared that Muslims around the world must declare war against the United States, as he claimed the country was a religious enemy of Islam.
In his 30-minute speech presented directly to camera, al-Zawahiri used Trump’s decision to move the embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as justification to carry out more attacks.
A homegrown terrorist who fled the US to join Al Qaeda in Afghanistan in 2007 has told for the first time how ‘boring’ his life as a terrorist was and why it failed to match up to his fantasies about jihad.
Bryant Neal Vinas grew up in Long Island but fled to Pakistan and then Afghanistan in 2007 after becoming disillusioned with the West. He spent a year trying to become a jihadist but did not complete a single successful mission before he was captured in Pakistan in 2008.
In the days after Sept. 11, 2001, the United States set out to destroy Al Qaeda. President George W. Bush vowed to “starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or no rest.”
Seventeen years later, Al Qaeda may be stronger than ever. Far from vanquishing the extremist group and its associated “franchises,” critics say, U.S. policies in the Mideast appear to have encouraged its spread.
What U.S. officials didn’t grasp, said Rita Katz, director of the SITE intelligence group, in a recent phone interview, is that Al Qaeda is more than a group of individuals. “It’s an idea, and an idea cannot be destroyed using sophisticated weapons and killing leaders and bombing training camps,” she said.
That “Idea” is Islam itself. The West is kidding itself if it fails to recognize terror as inherent to Islam. Whatever banner is waved, whether Al Qaeda or ISIS, it is the pure expression of Islam.
A senior al-Qaida leader was killed in fighting in Yemen’s central province of Marib while fighting alongside Yemen’s government forces battling Shiite rebels, officials and tribal leaders said Saturday.
The USAID Inspector General (OIG) has found that food aid intended for starving civilians in northern Syria was instead diverted by a USAID contractor — Catholic Relief Services — to a group identified by the U.S. government as a front for Syrian al-Qaeda.
That food aid was part of a now-suspended $30 million USAID contract for Syria awarded to Catholic Relief Services.
A top Al Qaeda bomb maker who masterminded a plot to bring down an airliner over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009 was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen last year, a senior U.S. official told Fox News Monday.
The Associated Press previously reported that Ibrahim al-Asiri was dead, citing a tribal leader and an Al Qaeda-linked source who said that he was killed in the governate of Marib in eastern Yemen.
Alia Ghanem – Osama Bin Laden’s Mom
Hamza bin Laden, the son of the late al-Qaida leader, has married the daughter of Mohammed Atta, the lead hijacker in the 9/11 terror attacks, according to his family.
The union was confirmed by Osama bin Laden’s half-brothers during an interview with the Guardian. Ahmad and Hassan al-Attas said they believed Hamza had taken a senior position within al-Qaida and was aiming to avenge the death of his father, shot dead during a US military raid in Pakistan seven years ago.
Hamza bin Laden is the son of one of Osama bin Laden’s three surviving wives, Khairiah Sabar, who was living with her husband in a compound in Abbottabad, near a large Pakistani military base, when he was killed.
Jihadis across the U.S., and the world, are laughing and celebrating at the same time. If we can’t deport a convicted al-Qaeda terrorist who met with bin Laden and the 9/11 architect, what terrorist can we deport?
German officials deported Sami A, an alleged ex-bodyguard of Osama bin Laden, to his homeland of Tunisia early on Friday via a charter flight from Düsseldorf, according to a report by Germany’s mass circulation newspaper Bild.
No full name, no picture. Germany is fecked.
The case surrounding the 42-year-old man has sparked a major controversy in Germany, after it was reported the man has been living in the city of Bochum for years and collecting €1,168 ($1,357) each month in welfare payments. Although his asylum request was rejected and he was declared a security threat, authorities in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) stated earlier this year they could not deport him.
Terrorism has engulfed the whole globe but it has played havoc in the Muslim world. The world has known famous and notorious terrorist organizations i.e.AL-QAEDA and ISIS has made the gulf a real battleground. The blood bathing of this area is not a hidden story anymore. Al-Qaeda and ISIS -both following the Salafist ideology- have brought Iraq and Syria to ruins. These are the terrorist outfits aspiring to establish a caliphate. They are self-proclaimed jihadist organizations, however, acting contradictory from the true ideology of jihad in Islam.
The leader of the terrorist organization Al Qaida has called for Muslims to wage jihad against the United States. Ayman al-Zawahiri told his followers America’s decision to move its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem was evidence that negations and “appeasement” have failed Palestinians. Al-Zawahiri said this in a five-minute video entitled “Tel Aviv is also a land of Muslims”.
The German government has been giving a man once believed to be Osama bin Laden’s body guard a $1,400 monthly welfare payments, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
A Syrian-born German national accused of recruiting 9/11 terrorists has been arrested while fighting in Syria, according to a senior commander.
‘Mohammed Haydar Zammar has been arrested by Kurdish security forces in northern Syria and is now being interrogated,’ a top Kurdish commander said, without providing further details.
Zammar, a career extremist in his mid-fifties, was mentioned several times in the 9/11 Commission’s report, which said he encouraged worshippers at a Hamburg mosque towards terrorism and alleged 9/11 financer Ramzi Binalshibh.
A sweeping $27-million lawsuit against the federal government brought by a Sudanese-Canadian who was detained overseas — and not allowed to return home for six years — is headed back to court, CBC News has learned.
An American photojournalist who in 2013 escaped from an al Qaeda affiliate prison in Aleppo, Syria, after six torturous months claims that the FBI betrayed him by putting intelligence gathering ahead of his personal security while he was in captivity. And he claims that for the past four years, the Bureau has had two of the terrorists who robbed him in custody, yet no indictments have been forthcoming.
Matt Schrier was abducted in late December of 2012 by al-Nusra and escaped from prison in July of 2013. Now he’s blowing the whistle on the FBI.
In an interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum last week, Schrier said the terror network stole his financial information and used his own money to buy at least a dozen computers and tablets. The former hostage said he knows “beyond a reasonable doubt” that the FBI was monitoring his accounts.
