Jihadist leader to U.S.: ‘Islam is coming’
WND.com reports: “During a radio interview Sunday [August 11, 2013], a representative of al-Qaida in the Gaza Strip sent a message to the United States: ‘Islam is coming and there is no other choice.’
That sentiment was expressed by Abu Saqer, leader of Jihadiya Salafiya in the Gaza Strip, speaking on ‘Aaron Klein Investigative Radio’ on New York’s WABC Radio.
Jihadiya Salafiya represents al-Qaida in the Gaza Strip.
Saqer further stated that after battling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the thousands of foreign jihadists currently in Syria could turn their ire on what he called the many other ‘enemies of Islam,’ including Israel and the United States.
Saqer did not say the spread of Islam in the U.S. will come through violence.
‘Islam is coming and there is no other choice,’ he told Klein about America and Europe.
‘Because we think Islam will come and this is something that no one can prevent,’ he stated.
‘And we will raise the Islamic flag on every point on earth where Muslims live and we will chase all the enemies of Islam wherever they are. Even in the West, in Europe and in the United States.’…” (Matthew 24:37 – 42: “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.” This text does not portray the Rapture, but rather the judgment of sin through the flood as found in Genesis 6:11: “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.” However, the next text portrays the return of Christ to deliver all believers. Luke 21:9, 27, 28, 31, and 32: “But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by…And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh…So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.” Lengthy verses, but concluding terroristic followings. See the next two reports and threats.)
Al-Qaida Muslims declare war on Hezbollah Muslims
WND.com reports: “A car bomb explosion in the Shiite Hezbollah stronghold Dahiyeh in south Beirut that killed at least 18 people and wounded some 340 may be the beginning of a new round of Shiite-Sunni sectarian violence in Lebanon and shows al-Qaida has declared war on the Iranian-backed group, according to report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
The impact of this attack in a Hezbollah high security area may well prompt the resistance group, which the United States and Israel regard as a terrorist organization, to confront directly the al-Qaida-affiliated group al-Nusra. The result could become urban warfare in Beirut and the surrounding area.
Jabhat al-Nusra is linked to the armed Syrian opposition seeking to topple the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Hezbollah and Iran back the embattled Syrian president and have sent fighters to assist the Syrian military to roll back the opposition.
In response, al-Nusra had threatened to send fighters into Lebanon to attack areas controlled by Hezbollah…”
Taliban Claims Responsibility for U.S. Base Attack
Voice of America News reports: “Authorities in eastern Afghanistan said Taliban insurgents on Monday [September 2, 2013] launched an ‘unsuccessful’ assault against a U.S. military base near the border with Pakistan.
NATO and Afghan officials say a group of heavily armed Taliban suicide bombers staged the coordinated attack on the American base in eastern Nangarhar province.
Provincial governor spokesman Ahmad Zia Abdulzai said the assault began when militants set off bombs and set fire to military vehicles in the parking lot at the U.S. outpost.
Three suicide bombers opened fire on foreign forces guarding the facility, according to Abdulzai. The encounter lasted nearly three hours and the spokesman said NATO helicopters also joined the fight.
NATO officials said none of its personnel were killed in the attack. Local authorities also reported no military or civilian casualties…”
