FBI Director: ISIS Tentacles Reach into All 50 U.S. States
February 27, 2015 — Breitbart.com reports: “The presence of the Islamic State (ISIS, ISIL) in the United States can be felt in all 50 states, according to the director of the FBI.
FBI Director James Comey told the National Association of Attorneys General that ISIS is a ‘chaotic spider web’ that avidly uses social media to radicalize people across the United States.
‘We have investigations of people in various stages of radicalizing in all 50 states,’ said Comey, adding, ‘This isn’t a New York phenomenon or a Washington phenomenon. This is all 50 states and in ways that are very hard to see.’
He made those comments as the FBI arrested three men in Brooklyn, New York for attempting to provide support to ISIS.
Comey said his agency is investigating suspected ISIS supporters who reside in all 50 states.
‘Those people exist in every state. I have homegrown violent extremist investigations in every single state. Until a few weeks ago there was 49 states. Alaska had none which I couldn’t quite figure out. But Alaska has now joined the group so we have investigations of people in various stages of radicalizing in all 50 states,’ Comey said.
‘ISIL in particular is putting out a siren song with their slick propaganda through social media,’ the FBI Director added.
In describing the jihadist group’s message, Comey said, ‘Troubled soul, come to the caliphate, you will live a life of glory, these are the apocalyptic end times, you will find a life of meaning here, fighting for our so-called caliphate. And if you can’t come, kill somebody where you are.’…” (America is in grave trouble. Ezekiel 33:3 states: “…when he seeth the sword come upon the land… blow the trumpet, and warn the people.” Ezekiel continues: “Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.” Matthew adds: “…as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” – Matthew 24:37. How was it in Noah’s day? “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence” Genesis 6:11. See the next 3 reports.)

Al Shabaab calls for attack on Mall of America in new video
February 22, 2015 — Fox News reports: “A new video from Al Shabaab purportedly shows the terror group calling for an attack on Mall of America, in Bloomington, Minn.
According to Fox 9, the mall is one of three similar targets the terror group specifically names, including West Edmonton Mall in Canada and the Oxford Street shopping area in London.
The video purportedly shows 6 minutes of graphic images and the terrorists celebrating the 2013 Westgate Mall attack in Nairobi, Kenya, that killed more than 60 people.
An image of the Mall of America is shown in the video, alongside its GPS coordinates. The mall says it is ramping up its security in response.
‘We will continue to monitor events with the help of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies,’ Mall of America said in a statement. ‘As always, we take any potential threat seriously and respond appropriately. Mall of America has implemented extra security precautions, some may be noticeable to guests, and others won’t be. We will continue to follow the situation, along with law enforcement, and will remain vigilant as we always do in similar situations.’
Jim Kallstrom, the former assistant director of the FBI’s New York office, said the FBI has a ‘huge job in front of them.
‘You look at the Mall of America, you look at all the malls then you start to backtrack and say you know it would be nice if we knew what comes and goes into the country,’ Kallstrom told Fox News on Sunday. ‘We don’t have a clue.’
The Department of Homeland Security and FBI issued a joint statement Sunday saying that both agencies were aware of the video.
‘In recent months, the FBI and DHS have worked closely with our state and local public safety counterparts and members of the private sector, to include mall owners and operators, to prevent and mitigate these types of threats,’ the statement read…”
Iran cleric vows to ‘raise flag of Islam on White House’
March 1, 2015 — The Jerusalem Post reports: “A senior Iranian cleric with close ties to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed on Friday that ‘we will raise the flag of Islam over the White House’ in response to the killing of Hezbollah and Revolutionary Guards operatives on the Golan Heights last month.
According to foreign media, Israeli attack helicopters killed six Hezbollah terrorists along with six Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) operatives, including a high-ranking general.
Among the Hezbollah operatives killed in the strike was Jihad Mougniyeh, the son of Hezbollah’s former military leader, Imad Moughniyeh, who according to Western intelligence sources, was in the midst of setting up a terrorism base on the Syrian Golan and plotting rocket attacks, bombings, anti-tank missile strikes, and cross-border infiltrations against Israel.
The cleric, Ali Shirazi, made the remarks to the official Revolutionary Guards web site. His comments were reported by the Saudi-owned news network Al Arabiya.
‘The resistance front led by Iran would retaliate from the global arrogance of killing [Iranian officers] and Hezbollah men’ on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights, Shirazi said during a ceremony honoring Iranian soldiers who died in Syria and Iraq…”
