And If You Needed Any MORE Convincing:

Sometimes things are simply what they appear to be.

"Militant Islam," "Islamists" (or, in my opinion, Islam) wants to eliminate Israel and all Jews from the earth, and then eliminate the entire Western World -- if you deign not to convert to Islam. For those who may possibly need just a tad more convincing:

(Thanks to Rebecca of Revka's Take for the heads-up on this new WorldNetDaily article.)

By Aaron Klein
JERUSALEM – It is only a "question of time" before Palestinian terror groups and other Islamic organizations in the Middle East target the United States both abroad and on the home front, Abu Nasser, second-in-command of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, told WorldNetDaily in an exclusive interview.

Information such as this is all over the internet. I would refer you to the following additional sites:

al Jazeera.net -- al Jazeera with their own captivating spin, in English just for us Infidels!
al Jazeera Magazine -- if you haven't acquired enough al Jazeera already.
Hezbollah Website -- darn; doesn't look too good at this point.
Hamas Website -- warm and fuzzy doesn't get any better than this!
P10K Website -- if you want to keep happy Palestinians happy.
CAIR Website -- spin, with just the slightest seasoning of Truth.
Al Qaeda Manual In PDF -- hey, start your own AQ cell, kids!
Hamas Charter -- read the entire thing; most revealing.

From the Hamas charter:

"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it."

"The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up."

"There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors."

There are also revealing places on the web to find the truth regarding terrorism. I would refer you to:

Jihad Watch -- an excellent informative site packed references.
Terrorism Link -- a great beginning resources.
Official State of Isreael Website -- find out what's occurring in Israel.
MidEast Web Gateway -- a treasure trove of information and references.
Terrorism Resource Center -- great site for beginning research.

I should also like to point to Little Miss Chatterbox's recent post on Hezbollah and its nature.

To continue from the WND article re: the US targeted for terror.

"The Americans deserve to be targeted because of their support to the enemy. It is a question of time before the revolutionary organizations in the Middle East will start targeting the Americans," said Abu Nasser, speaking to WND from Nablus.

The Al Aqsa Brigades, the declared "military wing" of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party, is responsible for scores of rocket and shooting attacks, and – together with Islamic Jihad – for every suicide bombing since last February's so-called cease-fire.

"One can say that these threats are just rhetoric, but the near past proved that these threats come more and more into reality," said Abu Nasser. "Believe me, it is a new era and I am suggesting to the American people to adopt a different policy and strategy because very soon they will deal with a unified Muslim world, but without the help of their agents in the Middle East." The Al Aqsa Brigades is not thought to possess the ability to attack inside the U.S., but there are concerns its ally, Hezbollah, has infiltrated America and is seeking to attack.

Hezbollah representatives in Iran warned earlier this week the group stood ready to target U.S. and Israeli interests worldwide.

American law enforcement officials said they are taking the Hezbollah threats seriously.

So America, my advice to you:
  • Keep your children's baseball caps backwards and their pants hanging past their asses;
  • Brad, Kate, Tom, Angelina; they're all the Resurrection and the Light!
  • Judge Judy and Maury Povich: critical to life!
  • Support Oprah! It's time for a tuneup for her Roller;
  • More Green Day! All Americans are idiots for supporting Bush & the war!

For, certainly, everyone knows all that far-off war stuff is ill-considered, oppressive, the result of Dick and George, Halliburton, American oil interests and results in global warming. It's far more important to know when and how Mikey has Two Mommies, that we support a working minimum wage, and that Transgenders are welcomed with open arms into the working public!

Huh.

Until the IEDs and HBs start going off in Starbucks, shopping malls, water purification plants, at the base of electrical transmission towers and the nearest propane storage facility near you.

Or perhaps five feet away from your body.

How's that for warm and fuzzy, America?

Mr. Z - Couldn't agree more!

Did a quick roundup of illegal alien activity that I segued over to the Hizbollah organization.

So, we now have Hezbollah individuals looking to run amphetamines to Mexican gangs to make meth, funding of Hezbollah in America through counterfeit goods sales, and just plain old criminal activity with Hezbollah sympathizers.

Now, far be it from me to suggest that actual automatic weapons fire eminating from Mexico and *into* the US might be a *bad* thing, and that illegal aliens with affiliation to human traffickers and narcotics traffickers might be a *bad* thing. Or that known terrorists consorting with same might be a *bad* thing. Or that al Qaeda forgery experts working for FARC in South America just might be producing counterfeit documents might be a *bad* thing...

Oh, no! Transnational Terrorism couldn't *ever* internetwork with other organizations like that, share training, share suppliers, share capabilities... why that might *almost* be a threat to someone, but *certainly* NOT America.

Can't happen here...

For all the folks going on about Iraq and how *bad* that it, it is certainly far, far better than under Saddam and pretty well in hand. Bloody and nasty for some time yet, yes. But, we actually do have a handle on the players and are working hard to ensure the peace in peaceful areas so the players can be played out once that is done. Iraq will *never* look like Texas or Arizona or New Mexico are... ummm... were... but we are fast moving towards a time when those places might start looking like Iraq.

Thank you to the Transnationalists of all stripes for encouraging this, and *especially* the Progressives for pushing 'victim' as something that can be used as a bludgeon to enforce their viewpoint on the world. Yes, that lovely concept of groups being *more legitimate* than Nations has given us spreading terrorism and the decay of the Nation State... and the erosion of the individual as having anything due to them, beyond their Group rights and status.

Don't defend yourself! You might upset your new Elite class... or even cause someone to be a 'victim' of a 'system' so that they can do whatever they want to you.

AJ: Holy Mother of God, when does it stop? The funding of Hezbollah in America through drugs.

And yes, Transnational Terrorism IS a happening thing. It's worked wonderfully well on other continents, why not ours?

I sadly still believe we won't clue in until the HBs detonate in our malls and our overpasses come down and Mindy watches the lungs of her friend Heather splatter the walls of Crate and Barrel.

Now I don't feel so bad; I thought I was the only blogging loon up early Sunday morning. Couldn't sleep anyway.

Mr. Z - Yes, the entree into South America in the late 1980's was only the start. I expect that Hezbollah made contacts with FARC, Shining Path and helped aQ and Iraq get the forgery experts in place. The hard and heavy interconnectivity of the Transnational Terrorists with Narcotics drug lords, local terrorist organizations and the criminal element has been seen on a large scale, globally.

But when you catch a Hezbollah supporter trying to get *tons* of amphetamines to a Mexican drug gang... well, that is just a cockroach in the kitchen, where there is one obvious slacker there are quite a few more hiding in the shadows. And if it gives any more of a warm-fuzzy the IRA looked to the PLO for training and went to South America for drug connections there, too. This is *not* just an Islamic Fundamentalist problem, they are just the worst of an ongoing disease. The Indian train bombings are connected to LeT locally, but also to a Kingpin of crime in the region and, of course, aQ said that they helped to do this...

Actually, the simple State Sponsored stuff is pretty quaint by now, for all of its ugliness. When looking into Aum Shinrikyo I was quite astounded that the cult lived above board, had a chain of 300 computer stores, manufactured LSD and other drugs, had contacts with the KGB and may have actually compromised the counter-intelligence unit of it, and that most of those involved on the KGB side scattered out to the 'stans once Aum fell. That said the remnants of that cult *still* have commercial contacts and access to the world banking system. They were entirely and almost completely *legitimately* self-financed! And NO importation laws could stop them from acquiring the means from producing viable nerve gas and even to properly weaponize anthrax, saving grace being they got the wrong strain of it.

So as much as we hate the jihadi's, a cult that promulgates that 'The end is coming' and 'go out and kill now to save souls' but, come back for drugs and sex for prepping the next operation is more than a bit chilling. Their attack on the Tokyo subways gave aQ the template for their later operations: African embassy bombings, 9/11, Madrid bombings, London bombings, Mumbai bombings. Those are all according to the Aum Shinrikyo MO, but replacing Sarin with explosives and expendable personnel.

And now that automatic weapons have infiltrated up to, and most likely across, the US border, it is not a question of *if* the US will get hit, but of *when* and *how often*. These folks are using that *wonderful* free trade system go attack us... but remember, 'free trade means freedom in the long run'... working so well in China, isn't it? And now that they know that low level money transfers disappear in the noise, distributed operations for money transferral can be set up and they will all appear as 'legitimate' sub-$10K transfers... probably in $3K or so range just to be safe.

Iran has tried the long game, but now have a loopy President ruining it. The US has the 'short attention span' syndrome and will only keep interested for a few weeks on anything, unless it is 'Survivor' or 'American Idol'. This charade needs to be unmasked now... not tomorrow or leave it for another generation to fix, once it gets far, far worse. Attention is fixed, the sides are clear, the enemy has made grave mistakes and misplayed their hand and now is the time to raise them above what they can top.

"I sadly still believe we won't clue in until the HBs detonate in our malls and our overpasses come down and Mindy watches the lungs of her friend Heather splatter the walls of Crate and Barrel." Ditto, BZ. I've felt that way for a long time, but we keep on chugging on, don't we? What else is there to do?

Your post is fairly oozing sarcasm, but I know the libs don't get it.

What a "Waqf"?

Gayle: good question, hence:

A waqf (Arabic: وقف, plural awqāf) is an inalienable religious endowment in Islam, typically devoting a building or plot of land for Muslim religious or charitable purposes.

Awqaf were among the most important owners of property in the Islamic world until recent times, and remain significant. Their incomes support the upkeep of many mosques; in past times, charitable services such as hospitals and orphanages were often maintained by awqaf.

The practice of declaring property as waqf gained considerable currency due to the practice in many Muslim states of expropriating the properties of important persons, especially officials, when they died or were disgraced. By declaring his estate as waqf and his descendants as trustees, a rich man could provide an income for his surviving family.

The Muslim administrative body responsible for the Haram al-Sharif in Jerusalem is often referred to as "the waqf".

AJ: all of this merely serves to buttress and support the clear and necessary argument that nothing other than completely sealing our northern and southern borders will suffice; once that has been achieved it will then become necessary to further secure our coasts and ports, as these will then become entry points of next significance.

*checks through past posts*

ah!

Goals in the Global War on Terror! It is a Foreign Policy posting, needless to say... But should be coupled with the Border Security post for a full-house.

Now some guy on the other Bloviator's program on Fox stated that the 6,000 NG deployment would cost $1.6B! Now, far be it from me to point out that this little tidy sum could get the ACE started on a *real* system and in three years it would be DONE. And what is nice as that when a section goes on-line it is fully equipped to defend itself via remot operator. So the only active security necessary is at the build site. After that, it is a self-protecting deal... as it gets built, the INS folks get to concentrate in smaller areas and pick up more illegal entries until the system connects to border crossing areas that would be separate stations for full inspection. By the time you get that far, the INS folks are available to do multi-lane inspection so that *nothing* comes in uninspected on the roads. The *excess* INS officers can then start the hard job of tracking down those already here illegally. Throw in the FBI for the Hezbollah terrorists and you have a much, much better handle on things.

Now if only we had a President and Congress that actually thought it was worth time and money to protect the Nation... they *only* swore an Oath to that...
