New issue of Inspire magazine now online

This latest issue is devoted to jihad in America, and gives detailed advice on drones, target avoidance and suggests attacking Western airlines and famous people.

Nothing on the Kardashians, however.

From the Washington Post December 24 by Karen DeYoung

New issue of jihadist magazine produced by al-Qaeda in Yemen suggests attacks on U.S.

A new issue of Inspire, the English-language online magazine produced by al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen, is devoted to “jihad on America” and suggests targeting major American figures as well as Western commercial airliners, according to a report Wednesday by SITE Intelligence Group.

The issue is the 13th since Inspire was first published online in 2010. Its founder, Samir Zafar Khan, was born in Saudi Arabia to Pakistani parents but grew up in New York state.

Khan, a blogger on jihadist themes who was well-known to U.S. intelligence, is believed to have traveled to Yemen and joined al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, the year before the magazine’s debut issue.

Khan, an American citizen, was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in 2011, along with Anwar al-Awlaki, also an American, whom President Obama described as AQAP’s “operational commander.”

The most infamous article published by Inspire, a Khan-authored instructional guide titled“How to Build a Bomb in the Kitchen of your Mom,” was used by the Boston Marathon bombers in a pressure-cooker explosive they planted in their April 2013 attack, according to prosecutors in the case.
The cover of the new Inspire issue is of a commercial airliner whose undercarriage is being blown up. According to the SITE report, the magazine states that it is “committed to arm Muslim individuals — as well as Muslim groups.”

Another church in Iraq destroyed by the religion of peace

Sooner rather than later, all traces of Christianity in Iraq will be gone, people included.  The slow but steady advance of the Islamic State assures the continued destruction of historical and irreplaceable archaeological sites documenting the rise of Christianity.  As long as no one addresses the root cause of the destruction we will eventually lose all history connected with Christianity.  Political correctness is killing our heritage, yet no one seems to care.  I guess to question why this is happening would be seen as "Islamophobic".

ISIS blows up Catholic church in Mosul

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—Islamic State (ISIS) militants blew up a Catholic church in the al-Arabi district of Mosul on Friday, a Pastor told Rudaw.
“Members of the extremist organization (ISIS) cleared the Church of Virgin Mary of its contents in al-Arabi area, north of Mosul and blew it up after few hours,” said Pastor Behnam Raad.

Local sources said that the militants had sealed off the church and planted the bombs on Thursday.

The majority of Mosul’s Christian population fled the city when ISIS took over in June. The group has since demolished a number of Christian, Shiite and Yezidi shrines in and around Mosul among them the ancient shrine of Jonah (Nabi Yunus).

Imminent demise of Britain alert: Palace guards no longer allowed to guard the Queen and must be protected by police

The guys with the fuzzy hats and stern demeanor are no longer allowed to stand guard outside the gates and entrances to the palace, they have been pulled inside the gates and are themselves protected by police, mainly due to "...possible threats from Islamic extremists".  The jihadists have won if this is the position Britain will take.  The more kowtowed the West becomes, the more aggressive Islam becomes, and with this capitulation Britain moves another step closer to annihilation.

Long live the Queen.

Retreating of the Queen's Guard: End of an era as palace sentries fall back in face of mounting fears of new 'lone wolf' terrorist attack

Security chiefs have taken the dramatic step of withdrawing Royal Guards from their high-profile posts outside palaces amid mounting fears of ‘lone wolf’ terrorist attacks.

Elite soldiers of the Queen’s Guard have pulled back from public positions at many landmarks in response to possible threats from Islamic extremists.

For the first time since the height of the IRA’s terror campaign, the soldiers are also no longer allowed on sentry duty alone, and are now accompanied by armed police.

The move to more secure positions behind gates or railings is a direct response to attacks such as the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby and the killing of a sentry by a lone gunman at the Canadian Parliament two months ago.

But the measures have been described as a ‘retreat’ for the Guards, known the world over for their bearskin caps.

Retired officer Major Iain Dalzel-Job of the Scots Guards told The Mail on Sunday: ‘I think this is a big shame.

'The reason people know we’re around is because they can see us. But I suppose the changes are necessary as there is a significant threat.’

This newspaper has confirmed the changes to the Guards’ security at sites including Clarence House, St James’s Palace, Windsor Castle and Horse Guards Parade.

At Clarence House, the official residence of Prince Charles, the guardsmen who used to stand in front of the gates on The Mall, a public road, have now been relocated, along with their sentry boxes, behind metal gates.

Tourists, who love to pose with the Guards, can now barely see them. Police officers confirmed changes had been made for security reasons.

Latest Palestinian Authority video: How to stab and kill a Jew

This is the "Palestinian" citizen Abbas wants to create and promote.   This is the "Palestine" so fervently striven for, the one where the Jew is but a footnote in a new, Israel-free Middle East.

Until we address how Islamic theology influences behavior like this, we are doomed to further acts of jihad.

From the Jewish Press December 28 by Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu

‘How to Stab a Jew’ Going Viral on Palestinian Authority Social Media

The “resisters of occupation in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem” are spreading on Arab social media a frightening video demonstrating tactics on how to stab a Jew to death quickly and efficiently.

The 1-minute and 13-second video, as seen below, shows the “teacher” calmly walking up to a “victim,” stabbing him, and walking away.

One of the tactics appears to imitate the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) method of beheading.

The guide to killing Jews teaches that after stabbing the victim, the knife should be twisted to maximize wounds and cause death.

The Palestinian Authority and anti-Israel Arabs in Jerusalem do not need terrorist cells when “resisters” use social media to reach hundreds of thousands of Arabs in Jerusalem as well as in Judea, Gaza and Samaria, with a single simple post.

Israel needs to find the source of whoever posted this video and arrest him or them.

All of Israel is paying a heavy price, the price of life, for a decade of conducting “negotiations” with the Palestinian Authority while it has incited an entire generation to hate Jews and then murder them.

Until the Palestinian Authority halts all incitement, and until Mahmoud Abbas starts condemning terrorists in Arabic as well as in English, and until the Obama administration understands that Israel means what it says, the government needs to stop all contact with Ramallah.

Arab stabbing attacks on Jews have increased significantly this year, and every Israeli is a potential victim when “resisters” educate every Arab to be a murderer.

"...Syrians would make up the next big wave of Muslim refugees coming to the U.S., as resettlement agencies were lobbying for the U.S. to accept at least 75,000 Syrian refugees over the next five years"

It's not Mexicans anymore we need be concerned about.  How many of these 75,000 are jihadists, and is anybody asking that question.  How will the vetting process work, and if it is based on truthful answers only and no actual background check, we are in for a passel of trouble.

This is not a good thing for the US.

U.N. sending thousands of Muslims to America

The federal government is preparing for another “surge” in refugees and this time they won’t be coming illegally from Central America.

The U.S. State Department announced this week that the first major contingent of Syrian refugees, 9,000 of them, have been hand-selected by the United Nations for resettlement into communities across the United States.

The announcement came Tuesday on the State Department’s website.

WND reported in September that Syrians would make up the next big wave of Muslim refugees coming to the U.S., as resettlement agencies were lobbying for the U.S. to accept at least 75,000 Syrian refugees over the next five years.

Until now, the U.S. had accepted only 300 of the more than 3.2 million refugees created by the Syrian civil war in which ISIS, El Nusra and other Sunni Muslim jihadist rebels are locked in a protracted battle with the Shiite regime of Bashar al-Assad.

But the U.S. government has been the most active of all nations in accepting Islamic refugees from other war-torn countries, such as Iraq, Somalia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Now, the Syrians will be added to the mix. They are cleared for refugee status by the U.N. high commissioner on refugees (UNHCR), who assigns them to various countries. Once granted refugee status by the U.N. they are screened by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for any ties to terrorist organizations.

The State Department announcement makes it clear that the 9,000 refugees represent just the beginning of an extended program to accept more Syrians.

“The United States accepts the majority of all UNHCR referrals from around the world. Last year, we reached our goal of resettling nearly 70,000 refugees from nearly 70 countries. And we plan to lead in resettling Syrians as well,” the statement reads. “We are reviewing some 9,000 recent UNHCR referrals from Syria. We are receiving roughly a thousand new ones each month, and we expect admissions from Syria to surge in 2015 and beyond.”

Breaking Report: The Islamic State has kidnapped Santa Clause

Islamic State's photoshopped image of Santa held hostage

If the picture is real, it would appear the Islamic State has pulled off the biggest coup since the Lindbergh baby kidnapping.

Seriously, this is another way to mock and demean non-believers and it shows that they understand the power of social media.

Islamic State Mocks US With Photoshopped Santa Held Hostage

Islamic State members and supporters online are distributing a photoshopped image of Santa Claus being held hostage by the group. The dark humor and heavy sarcasm of Islamic State (ISIS) supporters define its aggressive social media campaigns that position the group as the “cool” successor to the out-of-style Al-Qaeda.

It is unconfirmed if the original source was created by an Islamic State member/supporter, though an intelligence source involved in monitoring extremist online activity believes it was. Nonetheless, Islamic State supporters have happily been posting it and using it to mock the U.S. and Christmas.

Celebrating Christmas is viewed as heresy or even blasphemy, which is punishable by death under sharia law by some Islamists. Muslims believe that Christianity contradicts the singularity of God by believing that Jesus was the Son of God, instead of limiting him to an admirable prophet.

Islamic attitudes towards Christmas celebrations greatly vary, even among Islamists.

Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradawicondemns public celebrations of Christmas in Muslim countries, including the displaying of Christmas decorations with no overt religious meaning.

IslamWeb, a pro-Qaradawi website, has a fatwa against celebrating Christmas that orders Muslims to “try to get your children out of the holiday spirit by spending quality time with them, by traveling with them (if possible), and by decreasing their exposure to the holiday influence on TV and in shopping malls.”

The webpage for that fatwa also references Muzammil Siddiqi, a founder of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and current chairman of the Fiqh Council of North America. He says “Muslim families should not have Christmas trees in their homes, nor should they put up lights inside or outside their homes at this time.”

A radical California-based group named the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) has a fatwa permitting Muslims to exchange gifts on Christmas with relatives and friends as long as the non-Muslims understand that they are not celebrating the holiday. Another fatwa bans saying “Merry Christmas.”

Yet another AMJA fatwa says Muslims cannot sell Christmas decorations or play Christmas music. Any business transactions related to Christmas must have their profit donated to charity and Muslims need to try to find another job if their place of employment refuses to stop playing the music. Muslims are permitted to stay if they cannot find another job.

For more extreme and intolerant groups like the Islamic State, the mythology of Santa Claus is even offensive, even though Santa is not a reflection of Christianity but rather the more secular aspects of the holiday.

Islamists often believe that Jesus will return with the Islamic messiah, called the Mahdi, to defeat infidel forces and implementsharia around the globe. The prophecies state that Jesus will destroy a cross in order to debunk Christianity, thereby absorbing the faith into Islam.

When Al-Qaeda and other Islamist terrorists talk about "breaking the cross," it is a reference to this prophecy about Jesus. The Islamic State goes further and argues that it is fulfilling prophecy andtriggering this End Times conflict....

North Carolina High School accused of proselytizing for Islam

Watch the video by Dianne Lynn Savage and decide for yourself.  She makes a very cogent remark when she asks when the last time was that we heard a school talking about God, or Jesus, of Buddha. The answer, of course is not in the recent past, as any talk of Christianity, or Judaism, or even Buddhism, unless it is in the strictest framework of non-secularism, is not allowed.  

The point here is; do we want the schools to teach one religion over another, and in such a way as to whitewash what that religion it really is?

New Details: Viral video alleges Pitt Co. high school promoting Islam

GREENVILLE, N.C. -Pitt County Schools has responded to a viral video that alleges a Farmville Central lesson plan is promoting Mohamad and Islam.

The video, created by Dianne Lynn Savage, asserts that the plan is a vocabulary lesson for the eastern North Carolina high school. In it, Savage urges the audience to share the video as widely as possible and to not ‘just sit back and allow this'.Brock Letchworth, the spokesperson for Pitt County Schools, said Friday afternoon that school officials looked into the matter and released the following statement about the lesson plan, " Late last night, it was brought to our attention that there were questions about a vocabulary assignment in a senior English class at Farmville Central High School. The course is designed to accompany the world literature text, which emphasizes culture in literature.

Concerns expressed to us were related to the religious nature of sentences providing vocabulary words in context. After an investigation, we discovered that the vocabulary lesson was taken directly from a state-adopted supplemental workbook published by Holt, Rinehart, and Winston. This workbook includes a series of weekly vocabulary lessons, and the lessons are used to teach vocabulary in context. Lessons are divided into a trio of topics including expression, civilization, and the environment. This particular lesson was pulled from the civilization section of the workbook.Our school system understands all concerns related to proselytizing, and there is no place for it in our instruction. However, this particular lesson was one of many the students in the class have had and will have that expose them to the various religions and how they shape cultures throughout the world.

The Islamic State beheads 150 women for not marrying jihadists

More terror from the religion of peace.  Our dear leaders tell us Islam is a religion of peace, and that these beheadings have nothing to do with the peaceful, inclusive and moderate Islam.  If that is so, how do these jihadists keep misunderstanding their religion?  What are they not getting?

ISIS beheads 150 females, including pregnant women, for refusing to marry terrorists
Baghdad: As the world along with Pakistan mourns the death of children killed in the dastardly carried out terrorist attack in an army-run school in Peshawar by Taliban, reports of more violence from another brutal terror group have emerged.

Islamic State militants have reportedly beheaded at least 150 women, some of them pregnant, for refusing to marry them.

Iraq's Ministry of Human Rights, in a statement released, said that the women in the western Iraqi province of Al-Anbar were attacked by the Islamic State terrorists and were later buried in mass graves in Fallujah.

"At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas Al-Libi after they refused to accept jihad marriage," the statement said.

Last month, at least 50 men, women and children were executed by the IS members in a tribe massacre in the village of Ras al-Maa.

According to reports, the militants lined them up and shot them dead in public.

ISIS had also recently published a pamphlet guiding its members on how to capture, keep and sexually abuse female slaves.

It is over, and three are dead.  The jihadist is a known self-proclaimed imam who has tangled with police in the past, and he was currently under probation for previous offenses.  Watch for the media spinning this as a mental problem of other excuses, and wait for the media to start talking about backlash against Muslims, making sure we see them as the victims.

Gunman and Two Others Dead in Sydney Hostage Crisis

A gunman holding captives in a Sydney chocolate shop and two of his hostages have been killed, Australian police confirmed.

The suspect had previously been identified as Man Monis by local news reports, and the manner in which he died still remains unclear but New South Wales police have confirmed his death. The identities of the two others killed were not immediately revealed.

Police stormed the Lindt Chocolat Cafe in the early hours of Tuesday morning, local time, and three injuries have been reported, including one policeman.

New South Wales Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione said that the decision to enter the premises came after they heard gunshots coming from inside. Scipione also confirmed that, in total, Monis had been holding 17 people hostage, though up to 12 of those individuals had been able to get out of the store before police began their assault.

Scipione and New South Wales Premier Mike Baird said that Monis was a "lone gunman" and no explosives had been found in the area surrounding the Lindt Chocolat Cafe.

"We have lost some of our own in an attack we never thought we would see here in our own city," Baird said at a news conference Tuesday morning, local time.

Explosions of what were believed to be flash bang grenades were heard when police stormed the shop and while there were many loud noises, it is not clear if or how many shots were fired by either police or Monis during the face off.

At 10:19 a.m. ET, a group of at least seven heavily armed police officers went into the Lindt cafe under the cover of loud bangs of what local news Channel 9 is calling stun grenades. Shortly after the police stormed the café, at least two hostages emerged, looking visibly shaken.

A few minutes later, a few paramedics were seen entering the café behind police officers with medical packs -- followed by at least two stretchers. The explosive police action came shortly after a new wave of hostages emerged from the shop.

Monis was believed to be a self-proclaimed Islamic "sheikh" who is known to Australian police because he was allegedly involved in dozens of counts of sexual assault, according to Australia's 9News.

He was born in Iran as Manteghi Bourjerdi and migrated to Australia in 1996, according to the station.

Breaking Report: Jihad in Australia: Islamic State takes hostages, attacks Sydney Opera House

Hostages held in downtown Sydney; Islamic flag displayed

SYDNEY, Australia - A hostage situation was unfolding in downtown Sydney on Monday morning, as an apparent gunman entered a cafe and later a black flag with white Arabic writing could be seen in the window, according to multiple reports.

Reports from Austrialian media differed as to the number of hostages, one reported that there could be as many as 20 held by a lone gunman.

Australia has been a vocal backer of the U.S. campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, which has raised fears of reprisal attacks everywhere. The building where the standoff is taking place reportedly holds the U.S. Consulate and offices of former Prime Minister John Howard.

Several people inside a chocolate shop could be seen through the windows with their hands held in the air.

New South Wales state police would not say what was happening inside the shop or whether hostages were being held. But television footage shot through the store's windows showed several people with their arms in the air and hands pressed against the glass.

The footage showed two people inside the Lindt chocolate shop holding up what appeared to be a black flag with white Arabic writing on it. It was not immediately clear what the flag said.

The cafe is located in Martin Place, a plaza in the heart of the city's financial and shopping district that is packed with holiday shoppers this time of year. It is home to the state premier's office, the Reserve Bank of Australia, and the headquarters of two of the nation's largest banks. The state parliament house is a few blocks away.

OK, he should have said jihad, but it's a start.

Cruz noted the Obama administrations reluctance to call the Ft. Hood shootings by Nadal Hassan a terrorist act, even when it has been established that Hassan was in communication with radical Islamists. The administration simply referred to the shootings as “workplace violence,” Cruz said.

“That is Orwellian doublespeak,” Cruz said. “You cannot win a war on radical Islamic terrorism with an administration unwilling to utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’”

Jihad plot against Oprah in 2009 revealed

Oprah Targeted in Foiled Terror Bomb Plot

The Chicago studios of talk-show superstar Oprah Winfrey and the iconic “Sears Tower” (renamed Willis Tower) were the targets of a terrorist truck-bomb plot in 2009. But initially unbeknownst to federal authorities, two of the conspirators recently were arrested for unrelated state crimes in different parts of the country. The alleged bombers targeted Ms. Winfrey’s Harpo Studios because they resented her popularity and power, while the tower was selected because of its obvious landmark status. The bomb plot itself, planned in 2009, was inspired by militant Islamist hatred of American military involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq, according to law enforcement and other sources interviewed by Judicial Watch.

Sources requested anonymity for fear of reprisal by terrorist bomb-plotter associates, as well as retaliation from embarrassed federal law enforcement agents who apparently mismanaged the subsequent counterterrorism case.

The alleged bomb plotters were based in El Paso, Texas and included two longtime friends and associates currently jailed for recent state crimes. They are:
Emad Karakrah, currently held in Cook County, Illinois Jail on charges of making a false car bomb threat after leading police on a high-speed chase through Chicago with an ISIS flag waving from his car on August 28, 2014. Karakrah sought a plea bargain conference with Judge Evelyn Clay during his last court appearance on November 17, 2014. Karakrah’s public defender stated that she was waiting on additional discovery documents and an assistant state’s attorney disclosed that she was “looking for an FBI report.” Karakrah’s case was continued until December 3, 2014. It is not clear why Karakrah is not in federal custody pending terrorism charges.
Hector Pedroza Huerta is an illegal alien currently held in the El Paso County Jail. On August 13, Huerta was arrested in El Paso for driving intoxicated, a crime he has been twice convicted of (in 2009 and 2011). The feds quickly took over, charging him for the third time in five years with “reentry of a deported alien,” court records show. A federal magistrate judge granted the government’s order to hold Huerta without bond on August 19 and a few weeks later Huerta pleaded not guilty to the immigration charges, according to court records obtained by JW. But on October 7 Huerta was granted a “rearraignment” that ended up getting reset to October 9. At that “rearraignment” the illegal alien changed his plea to guilty, court records show. He is scheduled for sentencing on December 16 at 9 a.m. in Courtroom 422 at the U.S. District Courthouse in El Paso. Like his friend, Karakrah, it is unclear why Huerta is not facing federal conspiracy charges associated with the Chicago bomb plot. U.S. District Court Judge Frank Montalvo, handling Huerta’s sentencing, had previously presided over one of Huerta’s prior immigration cases (in 2009);

Judicial Watch sources detail that the other conspirators in the 2009 Chicago truck bomb plot are:
“Omar,” a male in his late-50s to early-60s, of Arabic ethnicity, who drove a taxi and had an ownership interest in a used car dealership and a gas station in suburban El Paso;
Two of the FBI’s “most wanted” terrorists: Jaber A. Elbaneh and Adnan Gulshair el Shukrijumah (a/k/a: “Javier Robles”); and, Other, unidentified conspirators.

The plot called for the use of a U-Haul-style trailer, as well as a delivery-style “step van,” that was purchased at auction in El Paso, Texas. Sources say the bombs were constructed with the plastic explosive C-4 and Tannerite, a binary explosive of ammonium nitrate and aluminum designed for detonation by means of a high-velocity firearms cartridge. Officials believe the C-4 explosives were obtained from Fort Bliss, the sprawling US Army base in El Paso, and the Tannerite was brought into the United States from Mexico.Federal law enforcement officials and Illinois police reportedly interdicted the bombers before they arrived in Chicago, according to sources with knowledge of the investigation. It is not clear if federal law enforcement officials were entirely successful in exploiting intelligence opportunities presented by the foiled bomb plot.

Boo Freakin Hoo: Jihadists in the Islamic State want to come home, their IPod is broken

Jihadists in Syria write home to France: 'My iPod is broken. I want to come back'

Letters from French jihadists home to their parents have revealed the misery, boredom and fear suffered by Islamist recruits as the gloss fades from their big adventure.

In a series of letters seen by Le Figaro newspaper, some of the 376 French currently fighting in Syria have begged for advice on how to return. Others have complained that, rather than participating in a noble battle, they have been acting as jihadi dogsbodies.

"I've basically done nothing except hand out clothes and food," wrote one, who wants to return from Aleppo. "I also help clean weapons and transport dead bodies from the front. Winter's arrived here. It's begun to get really hard."

Another writes: "I'm fed up. They make me do the washing up."

One Frenchman whinged that he wanted to come home because he was missing the comforts of life in France.

"I'm fed up. My iPod doesn't work any more here. I have to come back."

A third wrote fearfully: "They want to send me to the front, but I don't know how to fight."

Others were concerned, more prosaically, about the nationality of their baby, which was born in Syria and so not recognised by the French state.

And Le Figaro said that, among Islamist commanders, it had been noticed that some of the French were beginning to want to leave. One Frenchman was rumoured to have been beheaded when he explained to the emir that he wanted to follow his friend who had already left.

"Everyone knows that, the longer these people stay there, the worse it will be because having watched or committed attrocities, they become ticking time bombs," said one lawyer, quoted in Le Figaro.

"But, when it comes to having a discussion about whether France is ready to accept repentants, no politician is willing to take the risk. Imagine if one of these ex-jihadis is involved subsequently in an attack?"

Yes, imagine indeed.

After More Than a Year, This Is the White House’s Response to a Petition to Declare the Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Group

After more than a year, the White House finally responded to an online petition asking that the Muslim Brotherhood be declared a terrorist organization, and the answer is no.

“We have not seen credible evidence that the Muslim Brotherhood has renounced its decades-long commitment to non-violence,” the White House said in response to a “We the People” petition that garnered 213,146 signatures — more than twice the 100,000-signature threshold to trigger a response.

The petition, which called for declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group, was first posted July 7, 2013 and reached 100,000 signatures within 30 days.

The administration’s response, in line with current U.S. policy on the Muslim Brotherhood, is now listed as the top item under “Recent Responses” on the White House petitions page.

“The United States does not condone political violence of any kind and we continue to press actors of all viewpoints to peacefully engage in the political process,” the response said. “The United States is committed to thwarting terrorist groups that pose a threat to U.S. interests and those of our partners.”

FBI warning to US military: keep a low profile to avoid jihad attack

The FBI has issued a bulletin warning US military personnel that they are at risk from attacks bu the Islamic State, and thus should shut down their social media accounts and maintain a low profile.  Instead of having the military stand ready, resolute and defiant our dear leaders have them cower and hide.  It makes sense in that the administration refuses to identify the enemy, yet this same enemy is responsible for our decision to not provoke them by telling our soldiers to lay low.

FBI Bulletin Warns of Islamic State Terrorist Attacks Targeting Homeland Military Community

The FBI issued a strong warning to U.S. military personnel Sunday, urging current and former members of the military to review their social media accounts and exercise “operational security” online to avoid tracking by the Islamic State.

ABC reported that the intelligence bulletin, issued by the FBI and DHS overnight, recommended “current and former members of the military review their online social media accounts for any information that might serve to attract the attention of ISIL and its supporters.”

ABC’s Brian Ross said that some members of the U.S. Special Forces “already have deactivated Facebook and other social media accounts” in light of the increased threat.

FBI and DHS officials said they fear “copycat” attacks similar to the terror attack on the Canadian Parliament in October, which was inspired by IS social media propaganda.
