Operation Thunderbolt!!! 

On June 27, 1976, Air France Flight 139 took off from Tel Aviv, Israel, bound for Athens, Greece and eventually Paris. There were 246 passengers and 12 crew members aboard. Not long after the Airbus A-300 plane left Athens, four terrorists–two German nationals and two Palestinians–hijacked Flight 139. They were armed with pistols as well as a grenade with the pin removed, which one of the terrorists held onto as insurance against being attacked or overwhelmed by the passengers.

The hijackers, who were affiliated with the Marxist-leaning terrorist group Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the equally radical Baader-Meinhof Gang of West Germany, forced the plane to land in Benghazi, Libya, and eventually in Entebbe, Uganda, which was then ruled by dictator Idi Amin. The passengers who were not Israeli nationals were released, but this left over 100 innocent people still in their hands. The terrorists demanded that the Israeli and other western governments release 53 prisoners held in Israel, Kenya, Switzerland, France and West Germany, or they’d start killing passengers one by one on July 1.

The Dalai Lama says that terrorists have no religion

I like the Dalai Lama I really do but is he in la la land? Is it naive to believe that ALL religions are at their core exactly the same? Is it ignorant to assume that ALL religions are essentially all about love, peace and mutual respect?

If what he says in the video below is true then I agree that terrorists have no religion because terrorism has nothing to do with love, peace or respect for others. The problem I have is that the vast majority of terrorists have only one religion in common. There has to be a reason why one religion out of all the others in modern times is a fertile breeding ground for hate, intolerance and terrorism.

When Hell Came Calling

 The Beslan Mother Who Could Only Save One of Her Children

It started with children laughing and ended in gunfire and slaughter – a 53- hour siege that horrified the world.

The bloodiest terrorist attack in Russia’s history claimed – in official figures – the lives of 186 children, 118 relatives or school guests, 17 teachers, 10 special forces officers, 2 Emergencies Ministry employees and one policeman. A further 810 people were injured.

The Day of Knowledge, the beginning of a school year. A long-awaited event for first-graders: dressed nicely, with their brand-new school kits they rushed to Beslan’s school #1 for their First Bell ceremony. Many pupils were accompanied by relatives and younger siblings. The noisy crowd of people – including  students and teachers – all gathered in front of the school building for the festivities.

Parents carried flowers and teachers wore their best clothes. A Tannoy played music while the children formed lines alphabetically around the swing bars on the playground lawn.

It was some of the older children who noticed them first – a masked group quickly crossing the railway tracks that run behind the school. Some, giggling, thought it was a joke at first, until they picked up the anxiety of the adults waving at them to run.

‘The kids first ran towards them and then they ran back towards the school.

Shortly after 09:00 am local time 32 heavily-armed gunmen on two vehicles broke into the school and opened fire. Several civilians were killed in the shootout between the attackers and local police who ran to the scene after first gunshots were heard.

The terrorists ordered the people to get inside the school building. Between 50 to 100 people – primarily high-graders and adults – managed to run away, but about 1,100 hostages were forced into the sports hall.

The gunmen barricaded doors and windows in the gym and started mining the building with explosive devices. Russian media reported that there were two women wearing suicide-bomb belts among the attackers.

At around 10am one hostage, an adult man Ruslan Betrozov, was reportedly shot dead in the gym, right in front of the children, after trying to talk to the terrorists and calm down the captives.

Neerja Bhano, Neerja Bhanot was a hero after she bravely gave up her life in order to help save the lives of 360 passengers aboard Pan Am Flight 73 in September 1986. Terrorists had boarded the plane, and wanted to use American passengers as leverage. Through Bhanot’s quick action the majority of the passengers were able to escape unharmed.

Neerja Bhanot was a hero after she bravely gave up her life in order to help save the lives of 360 passengers aboard Pan Am Flight 73 in September 1986. Terrorists had boarded the plane, and wanted to use American passengers as leverage. Through Bhanot’s quick action the majority of the passengers were able to escape unharmed.

Not all Superheroes Wear Capes 

The hijacking of Pan Am flight 73 is considered one of the most brutal international terrorist attacks in the 1980s. Four heavily armed terrorists carrying assault rifles, grenades, plastic explosives and pistols passed Karachi airport security, and stormed Pan American Flight 73 from Bombay (now Mumbai) that had landed at Karachi early morning on Sept. 5, 1986.

Firing their weapons and manhandling a flight attendant, the hijackers took control of the Boeing 747-121 Jumbo Jet minutes before it was to fly off to Frankfurt, en route to New York.

Senior flight attendant Neerja Bhanot, was among the 380 passengers aboard. 360 of them lived to tell the world of her calm courage and supreme sacrifice. The terrorists could have done anything to her, but Neerja, daughter of a Mumbai journalist Harish Bhanot, showed no fear.

Mere hours before her 23rd birthday, Neerja Bhanot turned to see the 4 heavily-armed terrorists boarding Pan Am flight 73. She dashed to the cockpit to warn the pilots, but was caught by one of the hijackers, who’d grabbed her ponytail. Nevertheless, she managed to shout a secret “hijack code” to the cockpit crew – who, according to regulations, quickly evacuated, leaving the hundreds of passengers and 19 flight crew at the mercy of the 4 enraged terrorists.

With the cockpit crew gone, and Neerja now the most senior crew member on the plane, took charge. At the orders of the terrorists – who were part of the Libya-backed Abu Nidal Organization – she collected the passports of all the passengers, taking care to hide some under seats and throwing others down a rubbish chute, she destroyed the American ones, so the terrorists could not target those passengers. That’s because minutes after they stormed the plane, they had shot an American citizen and threw his body onto the tarmac and then asked for more Americans.

After 17 hours on board, the terrorists opened fire, at which point Neerja threw open the emergency exit. Instead of saving herself by sliding down the emergency chute, she used her body to shield three escaping children, and died in the process.

One of the survivors from that attack Dr Kishore Murthy, has told what happened in that horrifying moment when the terrorists shot Neerja in the head:

Civil war breaks out inside Labour after Syria bombing vote in UK

Labour luvvies in the UK are mounting a witch-hunt against those MPs who voted with Hilary Benn and with the government to commence bombing the crap out of Daesh in Syria.

But before we get into that, check out Hilary Benn’s speech…made in support of the government and against the wishes of his leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The best quote from the speech was:

Now Mr Speaker, I hope the house will bear with me if I direct my closing remarks to my Labour friends and colleagues on this side of the House. As a party we have always been defined by our internationalism. We believe we have a responsibility one to another. We never have – and we never should – walk by on the other side of the road.   Read more »

It’s okay when the French do it

There are logical actions and reactions. This post is to demonstrate that logic is not applied equally across the board to all countries. What I propose to show you is that when France or indeed any Western country does these kind of things, the World applauds and supports their actions but when Israel reacts in EXACTLY the same way they are condemned.

Considering that Israel is the West’s most valuable ally in the fight against Islamic terrorism this terrible double standard needs to stop. Quite frankly where does much of Europe and America, Australia and New Zealand, get off criticising Israel for what their countries would do in a heartbeat when in the exact same situation?

Terror on Wall Street

Lunchtime down on Wall Street today is a chaotic mess of brokers and bankers on cell phones, tour groups, messengers on bikes, police, construction workers, people delivering lunch and the stray old lady walking her dog.

Ninety Five years ago, In 1920, it would have practically been the same, sans the cell phones. So it’s particularly disturbing how easy it is to imagine the noontime scene on September 16, 1920. In fact, most of the surroundings — the Stock Exchange, the Sub-Treasury building (today’s Federal Hall), and most importantly J.P. Morgan’s headquarters on 23 Wall Street — are still very much active.

An unidentified man led a horse and carriage down the congested street, fighting to get past crowds, until it rested at the corner about 100 feet east of Broad. As the Trinity Church bells rang, the man dropped the reins and fled, never to be seen again.

One minute later, the wagon exploded with 100 pounds of dynamite, eradicating everything in its sphere, then sending dozens of iron slugs through the air to create a horrific scene of carnage.

You’re a terrrorist but you have no Syrian papers? No problem

2C622BED00000578-3235320-image-a-1_1442413844251

Oh look, proper journalists are finding out facts, not cuddling babies and writing cry-baby pieces in a newspaper.

ISIS fighters and economic migrants are able to buy Syrian identity documents that allow them to hide among refugees travelling to Europe with frightening ease, an investigation by MailOnline can reveal.

Our reporter was able to buy a Syrian passport, identity card and driving licence from a fraudster in a Turkish border town this week.

The genuine documents were stolen from Syria when they were blank. The forger added our reporter’s picture and gave him the identity of a Syrian man from Aleppo killed last year.

The documents, on sale for around $2,000, would help an asylum claim in Europe.

The forger who sold us the papers, said that they are being used by ISIS fanatics to travel undetected across borders into Europe hidden among tens of thousands of genuine refugees fleeing the terror and destruction.

Once in Europe they can set up sleeper cells or live freely under a new identity without facing the consequences of their brutal past actions.

As the forger chillingly put it: ‘ISIS fighters are among the people going to Europe in this way. They are going to wait for the right time to become a fighter for ISIS again.’

The revelation comes as Lebanon warned two in every 100 Syrian migrants smuggled into Europe are ISIS-trained fanatics, with most travelling overland through Turkey to Greece.

The extremist group is sending trained jihadists ‘under cover’ to attack targets in the west, Lebanese Education Minister Elias Bousaab told British Prime Minister David Cameron during his visit to the country on Monday.

‘ISIS will not stop at the border with Lebanon, before you know it ISIS will be in Europe,’ Mr Bousaab claimed.

Take a peek inside Sydney’s Muslim Land

The original title of this article is ‘Last drinks in Lakemba.’ It is a snapshot of a former Multi-cultural suburb in Sydney that is now exclusively mono-culture.There is no assimilation here. There is no Australian culture here.Recently I posted about an Australian woman/refugee who fled a suburb just like this one and took her family to live in Tasmania to escape the racism and discrimination she and her children faced there as European Australians.

Was she exaggerating what she faced? Read the below article and decide for yourself.

The Lakemba Hotel, Haldon St, Lakemba / Picture: Adam Taylor

THE Lakemba Hotel is one of the last Anglo holdouts in Sydney’s otherwise Middle-Eastern south-western suburb. Frankly, the old joint — it opened in 1928 — isn’t putting up much resistance. Most nights the bar is closed by 8.30pm or so, because by then what few customers it attracts are insufficient to cover running costs.
Still, it’s friendly and hospitable. Staffer Poppy helpfully showed me to my $50-a-night room, which is the only option in Lakemba for anyone seeking short-term rented accommodation.

There are no other hotels or motels. In fact, there are no other rooms besides number 15 in the hotel’s residential wing. All the others are taken by boarders, one of whom has been here for 20 years.

It isn’t exactly luxurious. The room has a sink, which is nice, but nothing else by way of amenities. There isn’t even a Gideon’s Bible. Instead, reflecting certain demographic changes in the area, there is a Ramadan eating schedule.

Lakemba may be only 30 minutes from the centre of Sydney, yet it is remarkably distinct from the rest of the city. You can walk the length of crowded Haldon St and not hear a single phrase in English. On this main shopping strip the ethnic mix seems similar to what you’d find in any Arabic city. Australia may be multicultural, but Haldon St is a monoculture.

Dutch PM: Radicalized Dutch better die fighting with ISIS than come back

The Dutch are one of the peoples that are at the sharp end of Islamic radicalisation in their country.

It would be better for radicalized Dutch nationals fighting alongside ISIS to die in Syria rather than for them to return home and carry out attacks, believes the Dutch PM. His party agreed, suggesting that their death is preferable.

Mark Rutte , the Prime Minister of the Netherlands and leader of the People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) expressed his point of view during pre-election debates on television.

“People who go there know what they are part of,” Rutte said, when asked whether he agreed it would be preferable that radicalized Dutch nationals die in Syria rather than return home. “The only aim is to kill as many people as possible. Those people will soon be back to carry out attacks here as well. As prime minister, I am here to protect our people.”

Something that needed saying.  Queue the outraged liberal lefties who want to cuddle murderers.   Read more »
