terrorismo e immigrazione

Mustafa Setmarian Nasar
Mustafa Setmarian Nasar

In un precedente articolo, La Gran Bretagna esporta il terrorismo, abbiamo parlato di immigrati con passaporto dello stato ospitante che si affiliano alle organizzazioni terroristiche islamiche.
Il fenomeno non è nuovo ne sconosciuto
.
Ai nostri solerti politici e magistrati, basterebbe rovistare nella storia recente per scoprire il come ed il perché dopo la “Connessione cubana” ci sia stato un dilagare del fenomeno. Prendiamo ad esempio l’islamico Mustafa Abdul Kader Setmarian Nasar e seguiamone la storia e le tracce il giro per il mondo.
Mustafa Abdul Kader Setmarian Nasar (eroe dei convertiti italiani, basta fare una ricerca sui forum) nasce ad Aleppo, in Siria nel 1959. Nel 1980 entra a far parte dei fratelli musulmani. Dopo il massacro di Hama del marzo 1982 fuggi in l’Afghanistan e si unì ai mujahidin nella guerra contro il governo afgano (dopo il ritiro dei russi).
Nel 1985 adottò la Spagna come paese di residenza, mischiandosi all’interno della grande comunità di siriani viventi la. Nel 1987 sposò una cittadina spagnola, Elena Moreno Cruz (comunista convertita all’islam) e diventò lui stesso un cittadino spagnolo (come tanti fanno anche da noi).
Tornò in Afghanistan nel 1988 dove incontrò, per la prima volta, Osama Bin Laden e quindi si è unì al suo gruppo arabo-afgano.
Quando nel 1992 Osama Bin Laden si trasferì a Khartoum, in Sudan, egli entrò a far parte del suo staff come aiutante. Dopo alcuni anni in Sudan tornò in Spagna.
Mustafa viaggiava spesso tra Parigi, Londra e Madrid (chissà perchè e che razza di affari aveva). Tra un viaggetto “d’affari” e l’altro scrisse un libro (rivolto agli immigrati in Europa) sostenendo che solo un islam rigoroso è la giusta via per la gioventù islamica.
Il 27/7/1995, dopo un attentato alla metropolitana di Parigi, attribuito al Gruppo Islamico Armato algerino noto nel suo acronimo francese – GIA, Mustafa Setmarian è stato arrestato a Londra per una breve indagine e rilasciato poco dopo con tante scuse (eccerto!).
Nell’autunno 1997, il nostro eroe, torna in Afghanistan sotto il regime talebano e nel 1998 prende la supervisione di un campo di addestramento di Al Qaeda.
Grazie al suo stato di servizio viene nominato da Osama Bin Laden, membro del Consiglio della Shura come coordinatore degli affari siriani di Al Qaeda.
Dopo l’invasione USA in Afghanistan del 2001 Mustafa Setmarian riuscì a fuggire in Iraq attraversando l’Iran e si riunì ad Abu Musab al Zarqawi ( il numero due di Al Qaeda) che si trovava nelle montagne del Kurdistan (KKK, quello di Abdullah Öcalan, vi dice nulla?).
Divenne presto ufficiale di collegamento di Ansar al Islam tra la Spagna e la comunità siriana in Europa. Egli lavorò alacremente come mediatore tra Abu Musab al Zarqawi e gli autori degli attentati ai treni di Madrid.
Il nostro uomo finì nella lista dei ricercati per essere interrogato dall’autorità britannica per possibili collegamenti con gli attacchi di Londra.
Nell’estate del 2004 tornava in Pakistan per gestire il flusso di terroristi in Afghanistan.
Nel 2007 appare in una lista distribuita dalla polizia del Pakistan come uno dei dodici fuggitivi più ricercati al fianco del talebano Mullah Omar, leader dei talebani e Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah, ricercato per il suo ruolo negli attacchi del 1998 contro le ambasciate USA in Kenya e Tanzania.
Alla fine, finalmente, nell’ottobre 2005 viene arrestato a Quetta città di confine con l’Afghanistan insieme a due sauditi, Sheikh Ali Mohamed al-Salim e Abdul Hanan, il presidente di “Madina Trust”, una fondazione di beneficenza legato alla Jaish-e-Mohammed.
Jaish-e-Mohammed è un gruppo militante islamico PACHISTANO che le autorità dicono abbia legami con Al-Qaeda.
Il 23/05/2006 Mustafa Setmarian è estradato in Italia e trasferito a Guantanamo dove è detenuto ancora oggi.
Insomma una brava persona che si è addestrata alla migliore scuola di terrorismo. Poi ha messo in pratica tutte le sue conoscenze ad Hama e visto che non era ora di andare in pensione ha pensato bene (con il beneplacito dei magistrati di sinistra tipo forleo) di viaggiare con il suo passaportino spagnolo e seminare qualche morto qui e la in Europa ed altrove.

Poi è arrivato quel cattivone di Bush che lo ha rinchiuso in galera (troppo poco secondo me) tra gli strepitii della sinistra mondiale (ovvio no?) e quelli della moglie :
The U.S. National Counterterrorism Center confirms Nassar’s capture in November 2005, and media reports indicate that Nassar was later held for a time at a U.S. military base on the British-owned island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean. In June 2009, responding to a request from a Spanish judge for information on Nassar’s whereabouts, the FBI stated it was not holding him in the United States but failed to address whether Nassar was being held in U.S. custody elsewhere.?
Nasar’s wife has taken the case of the Soviet-style disappearance of her husband public
. “Mr. Nassar’s wife and children want to know if he is still alive and where he is,” said Steven Watt, staff attorney with the ACLU Human Rights Program. “Requests for information about his forced disappearance, nearly four years ago, have been ignored by the U.S. government, and his family now has no other choice but to turn to the international community for assistance in their quest.”

Meanwhile, the consequences of U.S. foreign policy has real human costs. “I have been bringing up four children without their father for nearly four years now. They keep asking about dad and I have no idea what to tell them anymore ? I don’t even know if their father is still alive. Without knowing what has happened to my husband, I don’t know where to go with my life or how to move on. The pain of not knowing is becoming unbearable and I am so concerned for my children’s well-being if they should find out about the tragedy that we are being put through,” Nasar’s wife Cruz said. “If my husband is suspected of doing anything wrong, he should get his day in court. If he isn’t, he should be let go. No one deserves to be treated like this.”

Poverino! Vero? Insomma ci vuole molto a capire che togliendo di mezzo il sostegno dei compagnucci  il terrorismo si estingue da solo? Ci vuole molto a capire che questi animali vanno soppressi senza tanti complimenti? Estirpati come un cancro?

Part II. – Boundaries

A. THE ARAB STATE

The area of the Arab State in Western Galilee is bounded on the west by the Mediterranean and on the north by the frontier of the Lebanon from Ras en Naqura to a point north of Saliha. From there the boundary proceeds southwards, leaving the built-up area of Saliha in the Arab State, to join the southernmost point of this village. There it follows the western boundary line of the villages of ‘Alma, Rihaniya and Teitaba, thence following the northern boundary line of Meirun village to join the Acre-Safad Sub-District boundary line. It follows this line to a point west of Es Sammu’i village and joins it again at the northernmost point of Farradiya. Thence it follows the sub-district boundary line to the Acre-Safad main road. From here it follows the western boundary of Kafr-I’nan village until it reaches the Tiberias-Acre Sub-District boundary line, passing to the west of the junction of the Acre-Safad and Lubiya-Kafr-I’nan roads. From the south-west corner of Kafr-I’nan village the boundary line follows the western boundary of the Tiberias Sub-District to a point close to the boundary line between the villages of Maghar and ‘Eilabun, thence bulging out to the west to include as much of the eastern part of the plain of Battuf as is necessary for the reservoir proposed by the Jewish Agency for the irrigation of lands to the south and east.

The boundary rejoins the Tiberias Sub-District boundary at a point on the Nazareth-Tiberias road south-east of the built-up area of Tur’an; thence it runs southwards, at first following the sub-district boundary and then passing between the Kadoorie Agricultural School and Mount Tabor, to a point due south at the base of Mount Tabor. From here it runs due west, parallel to the horizontal grid line 230, to the north-east corner of the village lands of Tel Adashim. It then runs to the northwest corner of these lands, whence it turns south and west so as to include in the Arab State the sources of the Nazareth water supply in Yafa village. On reaching Ginneiger it follows the eastern, northern and western boundaries of the lands of this village to their south-west comer, whence it proceeds in a straight line to a point on the Haifa-Afula railway on the boundary between the villages of Sarid and El-Mujeidil. This is the point of intersection. The south-western boundary of the area of the Arab State in Galilee takes a line from this point, passing northwards along the eastern boundaries of Sarid and Gevat to the north-eastern corner of Nahalal, proceeding thence across the land of Kefar ha Horesh to a central point on the southern boundary of the village of ‘Ilut, thence westwards along that village boundary to the eastern boundary of Beit Lahm, thence northwards and north-eastwards along its western boundary to the north-eastern corner of Waldheim and thence north-westwards across the village lands of Shafa ‘Amr to the southeastern corner of Ramat Yohanan. From here it runs due north-north-east to a point on the Shafa ‘Amr-Haifa road, west of its junction with the road of I’billin. From there it proceeds north-east to a point on the southern boundary of I’billin situated to the west of the I’billin-Birwa road. Thence along that boundary to its westernmost point, whence it turns to the north, follows across the village land of Tamra to the north-westernmost corner and along the western boundary of Julis until it reaches the Acre-Safad road. It then runs westwards along the southern side of the Safad-Acre road to the Galilee-Haifa District boundary, from which point it follows that boundary to the sea.

The boundary of the hill country of Samaria and Judea starts on the Jordan River at the Wadi Malih south-east of Beisan and runs due west to meet the Beisan-Jericho road and then follows the western side of that road in a north-westerly direction to the junction of the boundaries of the Sub-Districts of Beisan, Nablus, and Jenin. From that point it follows the Nablus-Jenin sub-District boundary westwards for a distance of about three kilometres and then turns north-westwards, passing to the east of the built-up areas of the villages of Jalbun and Faqqu’a, to the boundary of the Sub-Districts of Jenin and Beisan at a point northeast of Nuris. Thence it proceeds first northwestwards to a point due north of the built-up area of Zie’in and then westwards to the Afula-Jenin railway, thence north-westwards along the District boundary line to the point of intersection on the Hejaz railway. From here the boundary runs southwestwards, including the built-up area and some of the land of the village of Kh. Lid in the Arab State to cross the Haifa-Jenin road at a point on the district boundary between Haifa and Samaria west of El- Mansi. It follows this boundary to the southernmost point of the village of El-Buteimat. From here it follows the northern and eastern boundaries of the village of Ar’ara rejoining the Haifa-Samaria district boundary at Wadi ‘Ara, and thence proceeding south-south-westwards in an approximately straight line joining up with the western boundary of Qaqun to a point east of the railway line on the eastern boundary of Qaqun village. From here it runs along the railway line some distance to the east of it to a point just east of the Tulkarm railway station. Thence the boundary follows a line half-way between the railway and the Tulkarm-Qalqiliya-Jaljuliya and Ras El-Ein road to a point just east of Ras El-Ein station, whence it proceeds along the railway some distance to the east of it to the point on the railway line south of the junction of the Haifa-Lydda and Beit Nabala lines, whence it proceeds along the southern border of Lydda airport to its south-west corner, thence in a south-westerly direction to a point just west of the built-up area of Sarafand El ‘Amar, whence it turns south, passing just to the west of the built-up area of Abu El-Fadil to the north-east corner of the lands of Beer Ya’aqov. (The boundary line should be so demarcated as to allow direct access from the Arab State to the airport.) Thence the boundary line follows the western and southern boundaries of Ramle village, to the north-east corner of El Na’ana village, thence in a straight line to the southernmost point of El Barriya, along the eastern boundary of that village and the southern boundary of ‘Innaba village. Thence it turns north to follow the southern side of the Jaffa-Jerusalem road until El-Qubab, whence it follows the road to the boundary of Abu-Shusha. It runs along the eastern boundaries of Abu Shusha, Seidun, Hulda to the southernmost point of Hulda, thence westwards in a straight line to the north-eastern corner of Umm Kalkha, thence following the northern boundaries of Umm Kalkha, Qazaza and the northern and western boundaries of Mukhezin to the Gaza District boundary and thence runs across the village lands of El-Mismiya El-Kabira, and Yasur to the southern point of intersection, which is midway between the built-up areas of Yasur and Batani Sharqi.

From the southern point of intersection the boundary lines run north-westwards between the villages of Gan Yavne and Barqa to the sea at a point half way between Nabi Yunis and Minat El-Qila, and south-eastwards to a point west of Qastina, whence it turns in a south-westerly direction, passing to the east of the built-up areas of Es Sawafir Esh Sharqiya and ‘Ibdis. From the south-east corner of ‘Ibdis village it runs to a point southwest of the built-up area of Beit ‘Affa, crossing the Hebron-El-Majdal road just to the west of the built-up area of ‘Iraq Suweidan. Thence it proceeds southward along the western village boundary of El-Faluja to the Beersheba Sub-District boundary. It then runs across the tribal lands of ‘Arab El-Jubarat to a point on the boundary between the Sub-Districts of Beersheba and Hebron north of Kh. Khuweilifa, whence it proceeds in a south-westerly direction to a point on the Beersheba-Gaza main road two kilometres to the north-west of the town. It then turns south-eastwards to reach Wadi Sab’ at a point situated one kilometer to the west of it. From here it turns north-eastwards and proceeds along Wadi Sab’ and along the Beersheba-Hebron road for a distance of one kilometer, whence it turns eastwards and runs in a straight line to Kh. Kuseifa to join the Beersheba-Hebron Sub-District boundary. It then follows the Beersheba-Hebron boundary eastwards to a point north of Ras Ez-Zuweira, only departing from it so as to cut across the base of the indentation between vertical grid lines 150 and 160.

About five kilometres north-east of Ras Ez-Zuweira it turns north, excluding from the Arab State a strip along the coast of the Dead Sea not more than seven kilometres in depth, as far as ‘Ein Geddi, whence it turns due east to join the Transjordan frontier in the Dead Sea.

The northern boundary of the Arab section of the coastal plain runs from a point between Minat El-Qila and Nabi Yunis, passing between the built-up areas of Gan Yavne and Barqa to the point of intersection. From here it turns south-westwards, running across the lands of Batani Sharqi, along the eastern boundary of the lands of Beit Daras and across the lands of Julis, leaving the built-up areas of Batani Sharqi and Julis to the westwards, as far as the north-west corner of the lands of Beit-Tima. Thence it runs east of El-Jiya across the village lands of El-Barbara along the eastern boundaries of the villages of Beit Jirja, Deir Suneid and Dimra. From the south-east corner of Dimra the boundary passes across the lands of Beit Hanun, leaving the Jewish lands of Nir-Am to the eastwards. From the south-east corner of Beit Hanun the line runs south-west to a point south of the parallel grid line 100, then turns north-west for two kilometres, turning again in a southwesterly direction and continuing in an almost straight line to the north-west corner of the village lands of Kirbet Ikhza’a. From there it follows the boundary line of this village to its southernmost point. It then runs in a southerly direction along the vertical grid line 90 to its junction with the horizontal grid line 70. It then turns south-eastwards to Kh. El-Ruheiba and then proceeds in a southerly direction to a point known as El-Baha, beyond which it crosses the Beersheba-EI ‘Auja main road to the west of Kh. El-Mushrifa. From there it joins Wadi El-Zaiyatin just to the west of El-Subeita. From there it turns to the north-east and then to the south-east following this Wadi and passes to the east of ‘Abda to join Wadi Nafkh. It then bulges to the south-west along Wadi Nafkh, Wadi ‘Ajrim and Wadi Lassan to the point where Wadi Lassan crosses the Egyptian frontier.

The area of the Arab enclave of Jaffa consists of that part of the town-planning area of Jaffa which lies to the west of the Jewish quarters lying south of Tel-Aviv, to the west of the continuation of Herzl street up to its junction with the Jaffa-Jerusalem road, to the south-west of the section of the Jaffa-Jerusalem road lying south-east of that junction, to the west of Miqve Yisrael lands, to the northwest of Holon local council area, to the north of the line linking up the north-west corner of Holon with the northeast corner of Bat Yam local council area and to the north of Bat Yam local council area. The question of Karton quarter will be decided by the Boundary Commission, bearing in mind among other considerations the desirability of including the smallest possible number of its Arab inhabitants and the largest possible number of its Jewish inhabitants in the Jewish State.

B. THE JEWISH STATE

The north-eastern sector of the Jewish State (Eastern Galilee) is bounded on the north and west by the Lebanese frontier and on the east by the frontiers of Syria and Trans-jordan. It includes the whole of the Huleh Basin, Lake Tiberias, the whole of the Beisan Sub-District, the boundary line being extended to the crest of the Gilboa mountains and the Wadi Malih. From there the Jewish State extends north-west, following the boundary described in respect of the Arab State. The Jewish section of the coastal plain extends from a point between Minat El-Qila and Nabi Yunis in the Gaza Sub-District and includes the towns of Haifa and Tel-Aviv, leaving Jaffa as an enclave of the Arab State. The eastern frontier of the Jewish State follows the boundary described in respect of the Arab State.

The Beersheba area comprises the whole of the Beersheba Sub-District, including the Negeb and the eastern part of the Gaza Sub-District, but excluding the town of Beersheba and those areas described in respect of the Arab State. It includes also a strip of land along the Dead Sea stretching from the Beersheba-Hebron Sub-District boundary line to ‘Ein Geddi, as described in respect of the Arab State.

Mercenari Italiani nel mondo

Sminatore italiano
Sminatore italiano

Più di una volta abbiamo sentito parlare di “mercenari” in Iraq, o in Afganistan. Bene, questi uomini stanno li per un lauto stipendio e per difendere gli interessi delle multinazionali.
I nostri media, giornali e televisioni hanno sempre riportato con grande enfasi l’invio di questi “fantomatici mercenari”. E’ arrivato il momento di smascherarli : Qui e qui trovate le informazioni necessarie per la loro messa in accusa.
Ovviamente sono polemico ma è bene sapere che l’organizzazione linkata è una ONG riconosciuta e finanziata dall’ONU. Purtroppo tra le loro fila non ci sono delle simone o dei gino strada o altre persone dichiaratamente schierate a sinistra e si sa quanto valore abbia questa appartenenza come effetto amplificatore.
Ma cosa fanno questi “mercenari”? Proviamo a dare una spiegazione rapida ed esaudiente : rischiano la vita per sminare, bonificare dalle mine i territori sui quali è stata combattuta una guerra. Vi ricordo che nel mondo ci sono, stimate, ancora 100 milioni di mine (50 delle quali di costruzione sovietica o di paesi dell’allora patto di Varsavia o ex comunisti o ancora comunisti).

Volete sapere come si esegue una bonifica? Continuate a leggere allora.
Intanto distinguiamo tra la bonifica operativa e quella umanitaria.

Mina iraniana ritrovata in Bosnia

La bonifica operativa è quella che viene attuata in occasione di interventi militari. Tende a raggiungere risultati del 70% , 80 % , dove il restante 30-20 % rappresenta un rischio residuo accettabile in operazioni militari in quanto molto inferiore a quello rappresentato dal pericolo di essere colpiti da un proiettile vacante durante un conflitto a fuoco.
Ben altra cosa è la bonifica umanitaria che deve raggiungere risultati molto vicini al 100% e che non può accettare alcun rischio residuo se non quello dell’evento casuale.
In questo settore sono in corso moltissime attività  di ricerca e sviluppo per arrivare a realizzare sistemi che consentono di ottenere i migliori risultati con il minor costo possibile e con la massima sicurezza .
Un accenno và fatto alle tecnologie per il rilevamento e l’individuazione delle mine. Si tratta di un campo che ha avuto finora un ambito di applicazione meramente militare, ma che, grazie alla nuova sensibilità  mondiale, e diventato di grandissimo interesse anche per la ricerca e la tecnologia civile e quindi per le operazioni di sminamento umanitario. L’interesse maggiore è orientato verso sistemi elettronici , che consentono di individuare con la massima precisione possibile le aree minate e le zone trappolate.
Ottimi risultati sono giunti per es. dai radar gpr ad alta penetrazione, o georadar, capaci di analizzare il terreno a profondità  variabile da pochi cm fino ad un paio di metri. Ci sono poi le camere ad infrarosso termico. Le mine hanno una temperatura diversa rispetto al suolo anche nell’ordine di uno o due gradi. Le camere più sensibili captano variazioni entro il decimo di grado e sono quindi ideali per rilevare le mine. Poi ci sono i radar sar che utilizzano il principio dei satelliti e hanno raggiunto un’altissima risoluzione (una precisione nell’identificazione del corpo estraneo entro i due o tre centimetri).
Allo studio ci sono i cosiddetti “nasi artificialii”. Si tratta di sensori biochimici capaci di captare addirittura le singole particelle i materiale esplosivo contenuto nelle mine. L’utilizzo dei cani per fiutare l’esplosivo contenuto nelle mine e quindi segnalarne la localizzazione è molto importante, anche se risente dell’inquinamento del terreno e come o visto in Bosnia ed in Kosovo, dei limiti di resistenza di questi preziosi animali che possono essere utilizzati per un massimo di due o tre ore al giorno.

L’utilizzo dei mezzi meccanici è molto utile ed è anzi indispensabile specie nelle grandi superfici, ma da solo garantendo al massimo l’80%, non dà quella certezza di sicurezza che lo sminamento umanitario deve invece poter garantire.
L’obiettivo, comunque , non è semplice da raggiungere, molti sono i parametri in gioco che possono condizionare e per taluni aspetti invalidare i risultati, ma non per questo non può essere affrontato e risolto con risultati apprezzabili, come dimostrano le attività  di bonifica in corso in tutto il mondo, che sono portate avanti manualmente dagli specialisti del settore, sia civili delle organizzazioni non governative, che militari (e.o.d. dei vari eserciti) un lavoro lento, quello manuale, ma garante di risultati affidabili e non inferiori ad una probabilità  di successo del 99,9 %. I sistemi meccanici ed elettronici sono ancora allo studio mentre esiste la specializzazione dell’uomo assicurata dalla professionalità  maturata negli anni dagli specializzati militari, di cui l’Italia dispone in larga misura fra il personale dell’arma del genio, cresciuti tramandando una cultura specifica che trova origine nel periodo immediatamente successivo al secondo conflitto mondiale quando ufficiali e sottufficiali del genio bonificarono il territorio nazionale. Oggi, gli eredi di costoro sono gli specialisti dell’e.o.d. del genio militare che hanno operato in passato in Afghanistan, Kurdistan, Kuwait, Angola, Mozambico e che oggi operano in Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq e di nuovo in Afganistan.
Nei programmi dello sminamento umanitario sono essenziali i seguenti parametri:

  • conoscenza del pericolo delle mine;
  • demarcazione delle aree minate e trappolate;
  • pronto soccorso e riabilitazione dei feriti ;
  • ricostruzione e sviluppo delle comunità  che hanno avuto problemi con le mine;
  • Formazione di specialisti locali per mettere loro in condizione di affrontare autonomamente l’impegno della bonifica.

Lo sminamento a favore dei civili si concretizza attraverso quattro diverse forme di intervento: lo sminamento strutturale, lo sminamento di programma, lo sminamento di prossimità , e lo sminamento cosidetto ” paesano ” .

  • lo sminamento strutturale si occupa della bonifica delle principali infrastrutture . In particolare, le prime fasi dell’intervento sono finalizzate alla bonifica delle strade e zone aeroportuali , con l’impiego dei sistemi meccanici realizzati per la bonifica operativa.
  • lo sminamento di programma viene attuato nell’ambito di un programma di sviluppo. Lo scopo e quello di facilitare la realizzazione di altri interventi tecnici ( sanitari , agricoli , urbanistici , idraulici etc . ) bonificando le aree di interesse da tutte le mine , trappole esplosive ed ordigni bellici ancora attivi.
  • lo sminamento di prossimità  orientato verso lo sviluppo di una bonifica a lungo termine. Ha lo scopo di restituire alla popolazione le condizioni essenziali per ritornare alla normalità . Il primo beneficiario di questo tipo di progetto è il gruppo comunitario a favore del quale si interviene e prevede la formazione di specialisti locali destinati alla condotta dei futuri programmi di bonifica. Lo sminamento di prossimità  coinvolge attivamente la popolazione e le attività  della bonifica operativa sono accompagnate da approfondite campagne di formazione sul problema delle mine .
  • lo sminamento cosi detto ” paesano ” finalizzato ad interventi locali, ma peculiarmente sviluppato per insegnare alla popolazione a convivere con le mine e le trappole esplosive difendendosi dalle stesse. Questo tipo di programma, generalmente , è sviluppato per aumentare il grado di sicurezza per le realtà  locali, a premessa di interventi di bonifica su larga scala. Il più delle volte , gli attori principali sono ex militari o abitanti del luogo che vengono abilitati ad operare per azioni di sminamento su scala micro-locale. Questi programmi sono attualmente in parte ed in alcune località  attuati da organizzazioni non governative, impiegando specialisti di maturata esperienza .

A premessa di ogni intervento è comunque essenziale disporre di mezzi idonei al rilevamento delle mine e adottare tecniche che garantiscono l’individuazione degli ordigni. Una delle possibili tecniche, quella più comunemente applicata da tutti gli esperti , è quella che vede il ricorso al sistema del prodding, , che consiste nel sondare il terreno mediante particolari aste rigide che consentono di individuare le mine interrate. Il prodding è efficace in quasi tutti i terreni e normalmente viene integrato dall’impiego di rilevatori di mine a funzionamento elettronico , non sempre affidabili in quanto molto condizionati dalle condizioni ambientali , dalle temperature estreme e dai terreni con presenze di elementi metallici
Vediamo ora in particolare come si procede alla bonifica di un’area minata di piccole dimensioni con il sistema del prodding. Per effettuare la bonifica di un’area minata, bisogna applicare delle procedure che dipendono da:

  • grandezza dell’area da bonificare;
  • numero e tipo di mine presenti;
  • numero di sminatori disponibili.

Il nucleo di bonifica di base è costituito da :

  • capo nucleo;
  • operatore sondatore;
  • operatore con apparato rilevatore.

Nella fase preparatoria, che precede l’inizio della bonifica, gli specialisti recuperano carte della zona e sviluppano una capillare operazione di intelligence, nell’intento di acquisire il massimo numero di informazioni sul campo minato e sul tipo di mine.
Svolta l’attività  informativa e ricognitiva che ha permesso di individuare sia l’andamento sia l’ampiezza dell’area minata ed eventualmente il tipo di mine, verrà  redatto un progetto d’attuazione che prevede diverse fasi d’intervento:

  1. segnalazione del campo minato tramite fettucce con scritte mine, organizzazione della zona di intervento per quanto concerne il sostegno logistico, il posto di sosta, l’assistenza sanitaria, eventuale centro di raccolta di mine e la dislocazione dei materiali esplosivi necessari alla bonifica.
  2. realizzazione della bonifica di un corridoio largo un metro e lungo 44 metri sulla fronte anteriore dell’area minata.questo corridoio viene creato per permettere ai nuclei bonificatori di agire in una zona certamente pulita da ordigni.
  3. una volta che il nucleo iniziale ha raggiunto i 24 metri di bonifica sul fronte anteriore, si potrà  dare inizio alle operazioni di bonifica in profondità , perpendicolarmente alla fascia iniziale, da parte del 1° nucleo.
  4. ogni qualvolta che il nucleo raggiunge la profondità  di 20 metri potrà  iniziare il lavoro il nucleo successivo e cosi via.
  5. fase: quando il nucleo iniziale avrà  terminato di bonificare i 44 metri del fronte del campo potrà  essere inserito nei nuclei di lavoro .
  6. ogni qualvolta che gli operatori rinverranno una mina questa sarà  segnalata tramite un cappellozzo bianco e rosso. Il capo nucleo provvederà  alla sua distruzione al termine della bonifica e, se ciò, non fosse possibile, procederà  all’eventuale disattivazione cioè all’inserimento della sicurezza per quanto riguarda le mine antiuomo, ed eliminazione della parte attiva (disinnescamento ) per le anticarro..
  7. al termine della bonifica della fascia di competenza ( 1 metro x 60 metri ) , il capo nucleo provvederà  alla distruzione sul posto delle mine antiuomo con l’impiego dell’esplosivo, sempre che questo sia possibile. Per quanto riguarda le mine a/c bisogna effettuare il ribaltamento delle stesse mediante una fune con gancio per ovviare all’eventualità  che siano provviste di congegni antirimozione. Effettuata questa operazione, la mina potrà  essere disinnescata e quindi recuperata.
  8. al termine delle operazioni viene redatto un rapporto di bonifica.

I mezzi impiegati per l’individuazione delle mine durante una bonifica sono :

  • la vista;
  • gli apparati cercamine;
  • le aste di sondaggio;
  • telai guida per il sondaggio.

In casi particolari per condizioni di terreno o di densità  di minamento, talvolta non è possibile applicare integralmente le norme per la bonifica descritta , questi casi sono i seguenti:

  • terreno con folta vegetazione;
  • gallerie stradali;
  • ferrovie e gallerie ferroviarie;
  • terreni acquitrinosi o temporaneamente allagati,
  • terreni eccezionalmente compatti o gelati;
  • terreni coperti da neve.

Effetti di una mina :
Il piede su una mina provoca un’onda d’urto di, più o meno, seimila metri al secondo, la temperatura al momento dello scoppio arriva a quattromila gradi e il rumore è di molto superiore a quanto possa sopportare l’orecchio umano. L’onda d’urto risale dal piede alla gamba e all’anca, le ossa del piede e della gamba si sgretolano, mentre il piede, la gamba e la coscia opposti, il basso ventre, talvolta il volto e gli occhi, rimangono offesi dalle schegge delle mine e da una moltitudine di materiali (sassi , pulviscolo, etc) proiettati dallo scoppio. Caduta al suolo, se non cade su una seconda mina, la vittima si trova in un grave stato di shock, con abbondante perdita di sangue. Queste appena descritte sono le conseguenze di una semplice mina a pressione ad effetto locale; le mine ad azione estesa e direzionali, come ad esempio quelle a frammentazione, che esplodono proiettando centinaia di piccole schegge, sono ancora più micidiali e provocano quasi sempre la morte delle persone investite che si trovano nel campo di azione delle mine.

Ho voluto descrivere cosa significa saltare su una mina, al fine di evidenziare la complessità  dei traumi fisici

Resistenti? Mercenari!

Ecco la risposta ai sostenitori della resistenza irakena. Resistenti Irakeni che combattono contro l’invasore?

No!

Mercenari al soldo del terrorismo internazionale come ho già avuto modo di scrivere qui. Terroristi sostenuti dai rossi nostrani, altro che Jihad. Spero che adesso sia chiaro a tutti che il terrorismo rosso e quello Islamico siano la stessa cosa!

Ecco la verità.

Seven French ‘died for al-Qaeda’ in Iraq

At least seven people from France have been killed in Iraq and elsewhere fighting for al-Qaeda, the French interior minister has told a newspaper.
"At least seven people from France have died… fighting for al-Qaeda’s cause, some in suicide attacks," Nicolas Sarkozy told Le Parisien.
Another 10 are in Iraq, Pakistan, Syria and Afghanistan, he said.
Nicolas Sarkozy also said the surveillance of flights to those countries would be reinforced.
These, he said, are considered stopovers for Europeans heading to Iraq to join militant groups.
In early June, French police detained two men believed to have recruited volunteer fighters to be deployed in Iraq.
One of them, 39-year-old Said al-Maghrebi, had reportedly trained with al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and had been sought by French police for months.
Another alleged recruiter of jihadists, Farid Benyettou, was arrested in France in January.
US authorities believe that a large number of attacks in Iraq are carried out by foreign fighters, some of them recruited in western countries.

Foreign fighters from Britain, Sweden and Pakistan killed in Somalia by USA

Foreign fighters from Britain, Sweden and Pakistan were among those killed by US missiles and Somali army operations, according to the Somali government.
A remote village in the Puntland region was bombarded on Friday, following the reported arrival of foreign militants.
As many as a dozen people were reported to have been killed, including at least six foreign Islamists, the government and army said.
The US has launched several strikes on alleged militants in Somalia this year.
The latest was carried out by a US warship off the coast, and aimed at hills around the village of Bargal, the government said.
The United States has refused to comment on the action.
"Foreign fighters, Somali militants and members of the international terrorists including British nationals, Americans, Swedish, Pakistanis and Yemenis were killed in separate operations carried out by Puntland troops and US Navy forces," the Puntland regional government said in a statement.
"The terrorists, who arrived in Puntland’s mountainous area of Bargal with boats from southern Somalia, have been defeated," the statement said.
Five government troops were injured in the operation, it said.
New battleground
The claim was denied on a website used by Islamists.
"American planes carried out random attacks without causing any losses among the mujahideen, praise to God," a group calling itself the Young Mujahideen Movement said in the statement. It also claimed 11 soldiers were killed.
Until now fighting between rival clan militias and remnants of Islamist militants, who seized control of large parts of Somalia for six months of 2006, has been concentrated in the south of the country.
This is the first time the US has launched an attack in the Puntland region, home to Somalia’s President Abdullahi Yusuf, says the BBC’s East Africa correspondent Karen Allen.
US media reports suggest the target was an al-Qaeda operative suspected of involvement in the 1998 bombings of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. 

Ecco chi sono i terroristi : bambolotti nostrani cresciuti all’ombra dell’occidente ed istruiti dall’odio del ’68.
Mercenari anticapitalisti che si alleerebbero col demonio pur di distruggere le nazioni nelle quali sono nati.
Fantoccini nelle mani di gente senza scrupoli che li manda a combattere contro quelle democrazie che li hanno coccolati e cresciuti.
Imbecilli con la pancia piena che annoiati dalla vita occidentale rincorrono l’ideale del mondo perfetto distruggendo tutto quello che è stato fatto in 2000 anni di storia.
Rifiuti dell’umanità che cercano in questo modo un momento di gloria per poter uscire dall’anonimato.

Ed ecco da chi sono combattuti :

Iraqi Insurgent Assassins…Al Qaeda Killers

Report on how some insurgents in Iraq are becoming American allies, capturing and killing Al Qaeda, and other foreign insurgents.

 

 

Poveracci padri di famiglia, fratelli, nonni che difendono strenuamente i loro parenti, la loro nazione, dal terrorismo rosso e che si sono alleati con gli unici sulla terra che li sostengono.

Sinistri, ovunque siete andati avete portato con voi miseria, morte e distruzione. Ancora non avete capito che avete fallito, siete dei falliti?.

40 anni di terrorismo

Dopo la conferenza tricontinentale tenutasi all’Avana dal 3 al 15 gennaio del 1966 (fondazione dell’OSPAAAL) , la Connessione cubana al terrorismo, dopo l’intervento di ernesto che guevara, scatenò la guerra contro l’occidente … quando l’invasione dell’Iraq e dell’Afganistan non erano ancora avvenute e non potevano essere prese come scusa.
… After tricontinental conference held in Havana from January 3-15, 1966 (foundation OSPAAAL), the Cuban connection to terrorism, after participation of ernesto che guevara, unleashed the war against the West … When the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan had not yet occurred and could not be taken as an excuse

For whom the bell tolls…

July 23, 1968: An Israeli El Al flight en route from Rome to Tel Aviv, Israel with a crew of ten and thirty-eight passengers, was hijacked by four Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine Islamic terrorists and forced to land in Algiers, Algeria – an OPEC, Marxist Muslim fiefdom.
August 10, 1968: While it was relatively meaningless by itself, it was part of a bigger campaign. In Turkey today, two firebombs were thrown into the USIS office in Izmir. The anti-American climate in Islamic Turkey would continue to fester and grow.
August 10, 1968: Yasser Arafat’s al-Fatah detonated three grenades in Jerusalem’s Jewish section, injuring eight Israelis and two Americans.
August 19, 1968: Yasser Arafat’s al-Fatahdetonated a bomb near the Parliament building in Jerusalem. No one was hurt.
August 21, 1968: Al Fatah terrorists bombed the U.S. Consulate building in East Jerusalem demonstrating their hatred for Americans.
September 4, 1968: Palestinian Muslims detonated three bombs in the Central Bus Station in Tel Aviv killing one Israeli and wounding 71 more. Attacking soft civilian targets was becoming a hallmark of Fatah terrorists.
September 13, 1968: Syrian al-Sa’iqa terrorists attacked the Israeli police headquarters in Baniyas in the Golan Heights. The facility was destroyed and all five Jews who were inside were killed.
October 26, 1968: In the Federal Republic of Germany, three prominent anti-Communist Croatians were assassinated in a Munich apartment. Throughout much of 1968, Communists in Croatia were attacking targets all across Europe.
October 26, 1968: Armed with a revolver, a member of the Black Panthers, Raymond Johnson hijacked a National Airlines flight to Cuba. The Black Panther was arrested and held by Cuba. No one was injured and there were no prisoner exchanges or ransoms.
October 26, 1968: Two Italians hijacked an Olympic Airways jet from Paris en route to Athens to publicize their opposition to the military junta in Greece. The terrorists brandished a pistol and a grenade. They gave the 130 passengers handbills telling them that they had just been punished for going to Greece. No one was injured and no prisoners were exchanged.
November 22, 1968: Islamic terrorists in Israel used a large bomb to kill 12 Jews and wound 52 more in Jerusalem’s most crowed open-air market.
December 26, 1968: Still basking in their July 23rd success, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine attacked another El Al aircraft in Athens, shooting and killing one passenger. In response, Israel destroyed 14 Lebanese planes in Beirut. The two Palestinian hijackers who perpetrated the attack were freed in September of 1970 as the result of a quad hijacking by the PFLP and subsequent prisoner exchange.
December 29, 1968: Yasser Arafat’s al-Fatah claimed “credit” for shelling the Israeli town of Beisan in northeast Israel.
December 31, 1968: In Israel, al-Fatah Islamic terrorists attacked the Jewish settlement of Kiryat Shmona in the upper Galilee. The rockets they deployed had been fired from Lebanon. It was the beginning of a foreboding trend.
January 2, 1969: A lone Islamic terrorist hijacked an Olympic Airways flight that had departed from Crete en route to Athens. The plane was flown to Cairo, Egypt.
February 3, 1969: Yasser Arafat, in the afterglow of the Time Magazine cover story on his violent and victorious defeat at the village of Al-Karameh, and flush with OPEC funding and jihadist recruits, was appointed Director of the Palestinian Liberation Organization in their meeting in Cairo, Egypt. The ugly face of Islamic terror had a new “Commander-in-Chief of the Palestinian Revolutionary Forces.” The “Chairman of the PLO’s Political Department” was now Yasser Arafat.
February 18, 1969: Palestinian Muslims attacked an Israeli El Al airliner in Zurich, Switzerland as it was preparing to take off en route to Tel Aviv. The cockpit of the airliner was machine-gunned by the four Islamic terrorists who belonged to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
The terrorists fired 200 bullets and lobbed incendiary grenades from their car as the plane taxied down the runway.
February 25, 1969: The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestinian “claimed credit” for detonating a bomb inside the British Consulate in Jerusalem. .
March 1, 1969: In Germany, Islamic terrorists corrupted by the Muslim Brotherhood used a bomb to destroy an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 707 jet at the Frankfurt Airport. Several cleaning women were injured in the blast.
The Government of Ethiopia blamed the attack on the Syrian-Egyptian Movement for the Liberation of Eritrea. The Islamic Eritrean Liberation Front claimed credit for the bombing.
March 6, 1969: Muslims belonging to the PFLP thought it would be a good idea to detonate a bomb in the Hebrew University cafeteria, so they did, mutilating and burning the bodies of 29 Jewish students.
May 22, 1969: The attempted assassination of the first Israeli Prime Minister, Ben-Gurion, failed but the would-be killers were freed by Denmark.
June 18, 1969: In Pakistan, three armed members of the Islamic Eritrean Liberation Front assaulted an Ethiopian airliner at the Karachi airport. The Boeing 707 was burned in the attack. The terrorists, all of whom were captured, told authorities that they carried out the attack to dramatize their opposition to Ethiopian rule in Eritrea. Since the Islamic Pakistani government was sympathetic to their cause the three men were jailed for less than one year.
July 17, 1969: In India, a bomb was detonated inside of a USIS reading room in the American Consulate in Calcutta, burning one employee.
July 18, 1969: In London, England, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorists fire-bombed a department store owned by Jewish citizens of the U.K.. The PFLP claimed responsibility for the bombing and warned that there would be more bomb attacks on Jewish-owned establishments in London and in the United States.
PFLP leader George Habbash said, “We shall expand our operations everywhere, in all parts of the world. The enemy camp includes not only Israel but also the Zionist movement, world imperialism led by the United States.” As a Muslim Marxist, Habbash had to please his Islamic and Communist financiers. Terrorism is, after all, expensive.
July 19, 1969: Islamic jihadists associated with the Sudan government firebombed a United States Information Services library in Khartoum. The fundamentalist Islamic regime in control of the Sudan would soon unleash the most deadly genocide in modern history, killing 2.7 million African Animists and Christians.
July 22, 1969: Muslims in the Philippines threw hand grenades into a USIS library in the American Consulate building in Manila, killing one Filipino. They did this because Muslims are hostile to the truth. Honest, open, and informed discussion is the one thing that is lethal to their religion – and thus to the terror Islam inspires.
August 17, 1969: In London, England, PFLP Islamic terrorists planted several bombs inside the Marks and Spencers Department Store.
August 18, 1969: Six Islamic terrorists hijacked an Egyptian Misrair Anatov-24 flying from Cairo to the tourist destination of Aswan on the Nile River. The plane was forced to land in Jidda, Saudi Arabia.
August 18, 1969: The Israel Touristy Office in Copenhagen, Denmark was bombed by Muslim militants.
August 19, 1969: TWA flight 840 from Rome to Athens was hijacked to Syria, where President Assad was sympathetic to Islamic terrorism. The Palestinian terrorists destroyed the aircraft.
August 29, 1969: In France, a TWA Boeing 707 flight from Paris was hijacked by two Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorists and forced to land in Damascus, Syria. The plane carried a crew of 12 and 101 passengers.
After the hijack the Islamic terrorists announced to the passengers that the PFLP had taken command of the flight, and they ordered the plane flown to Damascus. Immediately upon landing, the passengers managed to jump from the plane before a bomb went off, destroying the aircraft. Four passengers were injured.
The PFLP said the hijacking and destruction of the TWA jet, along with the hijacking of an El Al Israeli Airlines plane to Algeria in July l968, the attacks on El Al planes in Athens in December 1968 and in Zurich in February 1969, were all part of their plan to strike at “imperialist interests within and outside the Arab world.” Acknowledging their Muslim overlords, they also asserted that “the action was in reprisal for American assistance to Israel.”.
September 8, 1969: Arafat’s al-Fatah recruited two teenage boys and motivated the young Muslims to throw hand grenades into the El Al Airlines offices in Brussels, Belgium. Four people were wounded in the blast.
What’s interesting is that while the perpetrators admitted that they had conducted their mission on behalf of Fatah, yet the PFLP claimed credit for the attack.
September 8, 1969: Two Islamic terrorists calling themselves “Palestinians,” bombed the Israeli Embassy in Bonn, Germany. The PFLP claimed credit.
September 8, 1969: In the Hague, Netherlands, Muslim militants threw hand grenades into the Israeli Embassy.
September 9, 1969: In Asmara, Ethiopia, the American Consul General Murray Jackson, was kidnapped along with a British businessman by Muslims corrupted in Cairo. After signing a document stating that he had been instructed in the terrorist’s objectives, and that he had not been mistreated, Mr. Jackson was released.
September 12, 1969: In Jordan, a bomb went off on the porch of the Amman home of the U.S. assistant army attaché.
September 13, 1969: Three armed members of the Islamic Eritrean Liberation Front hijacked an Ethiopian Airlines DC-6 with 66 passengers aboard. The flight, bound for Djibouti from Addis Ababa was forced by the Muslim militants to land at Aden, Southern Yemen. One of the hijackers, Muhammad Sayed, 18, was shot by an Ethiopian secret police official who had been a passenger on the flight.
October 7, 1969: An undisclosed group of Argentinean terrorists bombed a number of American businesses for reasons they never disclosed. Although there were nine attacks, no one was injured.
October 21, 1969: Marxist Muslim Muhammad Siad Barre assumed dictatorial power in a military coup d’etat following the assassination of Somalia’s second President, Abdi Rashid Ali Shermarke. Barre nationalized the economy with the help of Soviet advisers and Cuban troops. His Supreme Ruling Council formulated political and legal institutions based on the Qur’an, Marx, Mao, Lenin, and Mussolini. Siad Barre explained: “The official ideology consists of three elements: my own conception of community, a form of socialism based on Marxist principles, and Islam.”.
December 5, 1969: Four Muslim Militants were caught before they could attack an airliner in London. The subsequent plot on the 17th failed as a result.
December 12, 1969: Islamic terrorists bombed the West Berlin office of Israeli El Al Airlines. No one was injured in the blast.
December 12, 1969: Muslim militants associated with the Islamic Eritrean Liberation Front armed with pistols and explosives were killed by plainclothes security guards as they attempted to hijack an Ethiopian Airlines jet shortly after takeoff from Madrid on a flight to Addis Ababa.
In Damascus, Syria, the Eritrean Liberation Front admitted that the two slain men were members of their organization but claimed that they had not intended to hijack the airliner, merely to hand out leaflets. But on December 10, Spanish police had arrested a third ELF member at the Madrid airport for carrying explosives.
December 20, 1969: In Islamic Turkey, a bomb was detonated outside the United States Information Services building in Ankara.
December 21, 1969: Three Lebanese Muslims were caught as they tried to hijack a TWA plane in Athens. The flight was bound for Rome and then on to New York. The three Muslim militants, who used handguns and explosives, said that they were members of the PFLP, and that they had received orders to divert the airplane to Tunis where they were to evacuate the passengers and blow up the aircraft.
One of the hijackers confessed that he and his colleagues had planned to destroy the plane “to warn the Americans to stop providing air communications with Israel.” The three Islamic terrorists were freed after the hijacking of an Olympic Airways plane to Cairo on July 22, l970.
December 29, 1969: Philippine terrorists attempted to assassinate U.S. Vice President Spiro Agnew by bombing his car. No one claimed credit for the assault but these same tactics were deployed countless times by local Islamic groups such as the Abu Sayyaf, Jemaah Islamiyah, and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.
January 1, 1970: In Turkey, an explosion occurred at the entrance of the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul. Islamic Turkey was becoming a dangerous place to be an American.
January 9, 1970: In France, a TWA 707 airliner en route from Paris to Rome with just 20 passengers and crew aboard was hijacked to Beirut by a lone French terrorist. He said that he wanted to spite Americans and Israelis for their aggression in the Middle East. Considered a hero by Muslims, when the hijacker was taken into custody in Lebanon he was only sentenced to nine months in jail essentially the time he served awaiting trial. He was promptly released and returned to France, where he was tried for illegal possession of weapons and sentenced to eight months in prison, once again, the length of the trial process.
The Popular Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine thought their criminal act was a good thing, so they claimed responsibility for the murder and mutilations. However, since the word has a problem understanding the benefits of being judgmental, and fails to appreciate the concept of responsibility, the murdering Muslim terrorists were set free after the September 6, 1970 hijacking of one Swiss and two U.S. airliners.
January 11, 1970: In Ethiopia, Islamic jihadists shot and killed a U.S. soldier. The Eritrean Islamic Jihad Movement was responsible for the shooting the American.
The Eritrean Islamic Jihad Movement was composed of Islamic terrorists who are financed, trained, and armed by the fundamentalist Islamic government in neighboring Sudan. The terrorist club sought to depose the current secular government in Eritrea and replace it with an Islamic theocracy based upon Sharia Law.
January 21, 1970: In the Philippines, a car bomb exploded behind the Joint U.S. Military Assistance Group headquarters in Manila. Three support staff were injured.
February 10, 1970: In Germany today, three Islamic terrorists killed an Israeli citizen and wounded 11 other Jewish passengers in a grenade attack on a bus at the Munich airport. The militants deployed guns and grenades in their assault on the El Al airport shuttle. The carnage was minimized because the Israeli pilots wrestled the weapons away from the Islamic terrorists.
February 17, 1970: The Germans foiled a PFLP hijacking of an El Al aircraft. However, their temporary success only served to encourage terrorism because the German government foolishly freed the kidnappers two months later.
February 21, 1970: A Swiss Air flight 330 from Zurich bound for Tel Aviv was bombed in mid-air nine minutes after takeoff by the PFLP General Command, a PFLP splinter group. Forty-seven innocent souls lost their lives to Islam, 15 of whom were Israelis. The bomb, placed in the cargo hold, was triggered by a change in atmospheric pressure. While the crew attempted to turn the plane back to the airport, smoke in the cockpit and the loss of electrical power thwarted their efforts,.
February 21, 1970: On the same day that the PFLP-General Command destroyed a Swiss aircraft, killing everyone aboard, the main branch of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine exploded a bomb aboard an Austrian Airlines Caravelle flight from Frankfurt, Germany to Vienna, Austria. Fortunately, the damage was not catastrophic and the plane returned to Frankfurt safely with its 33 passengers.
The bomb was detonated twenty minutes after takeoff by an altimeter reading of fourteen thousand feet.
March 1, 1970: In Italy, a bomb was found in the luggage of an Islamic terrorist aboard an Ethiopian airliner in Rome. The device had been placed by members of the Eritrean Islamic Jihad Movement.
March 4, 1970: Two hours after a violent anti-American demonstration in the Philippines, a bomb rocked the embassy area and damaged a passing tanker truck carrying gasoline.
March 14, 1970: A United Arab Airlines Antonov 24 flight flying from Athens to Cairo via Alexandria was four minutes out of its stopover when a bomb exploded in the landing gear well of the rear of the left engine, causing extensive damage to the undercarriage and injuring two of the ten passengers.
March 20, 1970: In Ethiopia, five members of a National Geographic film crew, including an American producer, were taken hostage by members of the Eritrean Islamic Jihad Movement. They held the five hostages for 17 days.
March 28, 1970: The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) fired seven rockets into the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon and into the JFK Library, also in Beirut. The PFLP later said that the attack was in retaliation for “plans of the U.S. Embassy in Beirut to foment religious strife and create civil massacres in Lebanon aimed at paralyzing the Palestine resistance movement.”
September 11, 1970: In India, a fifth jetliner, a BOAC VC-10, from Bombay to Beirut carrying 150 passengers, was hijacked by the PFLP sympathizer. The plane was also flown to Zarqa, Jordan. The passengers were held hostage pending the release of Miss Khaled from Briton and six other sub-human species. Once they were freed, the plane was blown up. No Islamic country has ever built an airplane, but their citizens became quite apt at destroying them.
September 16, 1970: In what was justified as retaliation for the plane hijackings the week before, but was actually a response to the three assassination attempts on the Jordanian King Hussein’s life, the Islamic nation’s Army attacked Palestinian communities within the kingdom. Since most Jordanian Arabs (70% of the total population) were related to those who call themselves “Palestinians,” and since the ruling monarchy wasn’t among them, this was a preemptive strike designed to keep the majority population subservient to the Hashemite minority. The armed assault on Palestinian refugee camps and communities would continue through July of 1971.
Late September, 1970: In Jordan, the terrorist organization known as Black_September was formed. An outgrowth of Arafat’s Fatah, the Arab League’s PLO, and Egypt’s Fedayeen, they claimed to be descendants of Hasan’s Hashshashin/Assassins of Persian and Crusade infamy.
February 2, 1971: In India, two armed Kashmiri Muslims hijacked an Indian Airlines plane to Pakistan. They demanded that the Indian government release 36 convicted Islamic terrorists held in Kashmir jails. When the government rejected their demands, they blew up the plane.
February 10, 1971: In Sweden, two Croatian Muslims seized control of the Yugoslav consulate in Gothenburg in an unsuccessful attempt to ransom its occupants in exchange for convicted terrorists held in Yugoslav jails. The Yugoslav government refused to meet their demands, and the terrorists surrendered the next day to the Swedish authorities. They were tried and sentenced to 3 years imprisonment. But on September 16, 1972, they were released and flown to Madrid after three Croatians hijacked a Scandinavian airliner and demanded their freedom, along with the release of five Croatians involved in the assassination of the Yugoslav ambassador on April 7, 1971.
April 8, 1971: In Sweden, Croatian terrorists assassinated the Yugoslav ambassador and wounded two Yugoslav diplomats in Stockholm. These murdering jihadists were released from jail when three Croatians militants hijacked a Scandinavian airliner on September 16, 1972, and demanded their freedom.
May 29, 1971: In their second attack since this timeline began, Basque nationalists attempted to kidnap Henri Wolimer, the French Consul in San Sebastian. He resisted and escaped. There were no injuries in either mission.
June 4, 1971: PFLP terrorists carried out an assault on the Liberian-registered oil tanker Coral Sea. Using a speedboat, the jihadists fired 10 bazooka shells at the tanker, causing some damage but no casualties. The attack occurred in the Strait of Bab el Mandeb at the entrance to the Red Sea. It was intended to deter tankers from using the Israeli port of Eilat.
August 24, 1971: In Madrid, Spain, a bomb placed by Al Fatah’s Black_September Organization exploded in a Boeing 707 owned by the Royal Jordanian Airline. The aircraft was parked at the Barajas Airport.
September 26, 1971: In Yemen, three bombs exploded at a U.S. Consular officer’s home. The bombing was believed to be part of an Islamic terrorist campaign against the government.
December 15, 1971: In London, the Black_September Organization attempted to assassinate Zaid Rifai, the Jordanian Ambassador.
December 16, 1971: Three people were injured by parcel bombs sent by the Black_September Organization to the Jordanian mission to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.
Muslims first genocide in SudanDecember, 1971: The first Islamic war in the Sudan was nearing resolution. However, Arab Muslims trying to Sharia Law in all of the Sudan had already killed 500,000 Africans, 80% of them being unarmed civilians, leaving a million more homeless.
British bungling had set the stage for the slaughter in Sudan. As part of the UK’s strategy in the Middle East, the Arab Muslim north and the African animist and Christian south were merged into a single administrative protectorate. In 1953 Egypt and the UK granted “independence” to the Sudan because it was becoming impossible to control under these circumstances. Muslims don’t share power with anyone. When this happened, the Arab Muslims in the north immediately recanted the agreements they had made with the African south, and began attacking them. A succession of Islamic dominated administrations did nothing to stop the terror.

… and we know terrorism has not stopped…. it continues and we must be vigilant. We must not forget. We must not put our heads in the sand. We must demand that our elected officials stop playing politics. This isn’t a game. The common thread in all the attacks is that there is a deep seeded hatred for us.

According to them, we must submit or die. That is their goal- it is just that simple… What is our goal? I hope it is live free or die… All preceding information is an incomplete sampling of terrorist activity pulled directly from:

Timeline of islamic Terrorism since 1966

Dopo la conferenza tricontinentale tenutasi all’Avana dal 3 al 15 gennaio del 1966 (fondazione dell’OSPAAAL) , la Connessione cubana al terrorismo, dopo l’intervento di ernesto che guevara, scatenò la guerra contro l’occidente … quando l’invasione dell’Iraq e dell’Afganistan non erano ancora avvenute e non potevano essere prese come scusa.
… After tricontinental conference held in Havana from January 3-15, 1966 (foundation OSPAAAL), the Cuban connection to terrorism, after participation of ernesto che guevara, unleashed the war against the West … When the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan had not yet occurred and could not be taken as an excuse

For whom the bell tolls…

July 23, 1968: An Israeli El Al flight en route from Rome to Tel Aviv, Israel with a crew of ten and thirty-eight passengers, was hijacked by four Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine Islamic terrorists and forced to land in Algiers, Algeria – an OPEC, Marxist Muslim fiefdom.
August 10, 1968: While it was relatively meaningless by itself, it was part of a bigger campaign. In Turkey today, two firebombs were thrown into the USIS office in Izmir. The anti-American climate in Islamic Turkey would continue to fester and grow.
August 10, 1968: Yasser Arafat’s al-Fatah detonated three grenades in Jerusalem’s Jewish section, injuring eight Israelis and two Americans.
August 19, 1968: Yasser Arafat’s al-Fatahdetonated a bomb near the Parliament building in Jerusalem. No one was hurt.

September 4, 1968: Palestinian Muslims detonated three bombs in the Central Bus Station in Tel Aviv killing one Israeli and wounding 71 more. Attacking soft civilian targets was becoming a hallmark of Fatah terrorists.
September 13, 1968: Syrian al-Sa’iqa terrorists attacked the Israeli police headquarters in Baniyas in the Golan Heights. The facility was destroyed and all five Jews who were inside were killed.
October 26, 1968: In the Federal Republic of Germany, three prominent anti-Communist Croatians were assassinated in a Munich apartment. Throughout much of 1968, Communists in Croatia were attacking targets all across Europe.
October 26, 1968: Armed with a revolver, a member of the Black Panthers, Raymond Johnson hijacked a National Airlines flight to Cuba. The Black Panther was arrested and held by Cuba. No one was injured and there were no prisoner exchanges or ransoms.
October 26, 1968: Two Italians hijacked an Olympic Airways jet from Paris en route to Athens to publicize their opposition to the military junta in Greece.

No one was injured and no prisoners were exchanged.
November 22, 1968: Islamic terrorists in Israel used a large bomb to kill 12 Jews and wound 52 more in Jerusalem’s most crowed open-air market.
December 26, 1968: Still basking in their July 23rd success, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine attacked another El Al aircraft in Athens, shooting and killing one passenger. In response, Israel destroyed 14 Lebanese planes in Beirut. The two Palestinian hijackers who perpetrated the attack were freed in September of 1970 as the result of a quad hijacking by the PFLP and subsequent prisoner exchange.
December 29, 1968: Yasser Arafat’s al-Fatah claimed “credit” for shelling the Israeli town of Beisan in northeast Israel.
December 31, 1968: In Israel, al-Fatah Islamic terrorists attacked the Jewish settlement of Kiryat Shmona in the upper Galilee. The rockets they deployed had been fired from Lebanon. It was the beginning of a foreboding trend.
January 2, 1969: A lone Islamic terrorist hijacked an Olympic Airways flight that had departed from Crete en route to Athens. The plane was flown to Cairo, Egypt.
February 3, 1969: Yasser Arafat, in the afterglow of the Time Magazine cover story on his violent and victorious defeat at the village of Al-Karameh, and flush with OPEC funding and jihadist recruits, was appointed Director of the Palestinian Liberation Organization in their meeting in Cairo, Egypt. The ugly face of Islamic terror had a new “Commander-in-Chief of the Palestinian Revolutionary Forces.” The “Chairman of the PLO’s Political Department” was now Yasser Arafat.
February 18, 1969: Palestinian Muslims attacked an Israeli El Al airliner in Zurich, Switzerland as it was preparing to take off en route to Tel Aviv. The cockpit of the airliner was machine-gunned by the four Islamic terrorists who belonged to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
The terrorists fired 200 bullets and lobbed incendiary grenades from their car as the plane taxied down the runway.
February 25, 1969: The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestinian “claimed credit” for detonating a bomb inside the British Consulate in Jerusalem. .

The Government of Ethiopia blamed the attack on the Syrian-Egyptian Movement for the Liberation of Eritrea. The Islamic Eritrean Liberation Front claimed credit for the bombing.
March 6, 1969: Muslims belonging to the PFLP thought it would be a good idea to detonate a bomb in the Hebrew University cafeteria, so they did, mutilating and burning the bodies of 29 Jewish students.
May 22, 1969: The attempted assassination of the first Israeli Prime Minister, Ben-Gurion, failed but the would-be killers were freed by Denmark.
June 18, 1969: In Pakistan, three armed members of the Islamic Eritrean Liberation Front assaulted an Ethiopian airliner at the Karachi airport. The Boeing 707 was burned in the attack. The terrorists, all of whom were captured, told authorities that they carried out the attack to dramatize their opposition to Ethiopian rule in Eritrea. Since the Islamic Pakistani government was sympathetic to their cause the three men were jailed for less than one year.
July 17, 1969: In India, a bomb was detonated inside of a USIS reading room in the American Consulate in Calcutta, burning one employee.
July 18, 1969: In London, England, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorists fire-bombed a department store owned by Jewish citizens of the U.K.. The PFLP claimed responsibility for the bombing and warned that there would be more bomb attacks on Jewish-owned establishments in London and in the United States.
PFLP leader George Habbash said, “We shall expand our operations everywhere, in all parts of the world. The enemy camp includes not only Israel but also the Zionist movement, world imperialism led by the United States.” As a Muslim Marxist, Habbash had to please his Islamic and Communist financiers. Terrorism is, after all, expensive.
July 19, 1969: Islamic jihadists associated with the Sudan government firebombed a United States Information Services library in Khartoum. The fundamentalist Islamic regime in control of the Sudan would soon unleash the most deadly genocide in modern history, killing 2.7 million African Animists and Christians.
July 22, 1969: Muslims in the Philippines threw hand grenades into a USIS library in the American Consulate building in Manila, killing one Filipino. They did this because Muslims are hostile to the truth. Honest, open, and informed discussion is the one thing that is lethal to their religion – and thus to the terror Islam inspires.
August 17, 1969: In London, England, PFLP Islamic terrorists planted several bombs inside the Marks and Spencers Department Store.
August 18, 1969: Six Islamic terrorists hijacked an Egyptian Misrair Anatov-24 flying from Cairo to the tourist destination of Aswan on the Nile River. The plane was forced to land in Jidda, Saudi Arabia.

After the hijack the Islamic terrorists announced to the passengers that the PFLP had taken command of the flight, and they ordered the plane flown to Damascus. Immediately upon landing, the passengers managed to jump from the plane before a bomb went off, destroying the aircraft. Four passengers were injured.
The PFLP said the hijacking and destruction of the TWA jet, along with the hijacking of an El Al Israeli Airlines plane to Algeria in July l968, the attacks on El Al planes in Athens in December 1968 and in Zurich in February 1969, were all part of their plan to strike at “imperialist interests within and outside the Arab world.” Acknowledging their Muslim overlords, they also asserted that “the action was in reprisal for American assistance to Israel.”.
September 8, 1969: Arafat’s al-Fatah recruited two teenage boys and motivated the young Muslims to throw hand grenades into the El Al Airlines offices in Brussels, Belgium. Four people were wounded in the blast.
What’s interesting is that while the perpetrators admitted that they had conducted their mission on behalf of Fatah, yet the PFLP claimed credit for the attack.
September 8, 1969: Two Islamic terrorists calling themselves “Palestinians,” bombed the Israeli Embassy in Bonn, Germany. The PFLP claimed credit.
September 8, 1969: In the Hague, Netherlands, Muslim militants threw hand grenades into the Israeli Embassy.

October 21, 1969: Marxist Muslim Muhammad Siad Barre assumed dictatorial power in a military coup d’etat following the assassination of Somalia’s second President, Abdi Rashid Ali Shermarke. Barre nationalized the economy with the help of Soviet advisers and Cuban troops. His Supreme Ruling Council formulated political and legal institutions based on the Qur’an, Marx, Mao, Lenin, and Mussolini. Siad Barre explained: “The official ideology consists of three elements: my own conception of community, a form of socialism based on Marxist principles, and Islam.”.
December 5, 1969: Four Muslim Militants were caught before they could attack an airliner in London. The subsequent plot on the 17th failed as a result.
December 12, 1969: Islamic terrorists bombed the West Berlin office of Israeli El Al Airlines. No one was injured in the blast.
December 12, 1969: Muslim militants associated with the Islamic Eritrean Liberation Front armed with pistols and explosives were killed by plainclothes security guards as they attempted to hijack an Ethiopian Airlines jet shortly after takeoff from Madrid on a flight to Addis Ababa.
In Damascus, Syria, the Eritrean Liberation Front admitted that the two slain men were members of their organization but claimed that they had not intended to hijack the airliner, merely to hand out leaflets. But on December 10, Spanish police had arrested a third ELF member at the Madrid airport for carrying explosives.
December 20, 1969: In Islamic Turkey, a bomb was detonated outside the United States Information Services building in Ankara.
December 21, 1969: Three Lebanese Muslims were caught as they tried to hijack a TWA plane in Athens. The flight was bound for Rome and then on to New York. The three Muslim militants, who used handguns and explosives, said that they were members of the PFLP, and that they had received orders to divert the airplane to Tunis where they were to evacuate the passengers and blow up the aircraft.
One of the hijackers confessed that he and his colleagues had planned to destroy the plane “to warn the Americans to stop providing air communications with Israel.” The three Islamic terrorists were freed after the hijacking of an Olympic Airways plane to Cairo on July 22, l970.
December 29, 1969: Philippine terrorists attempted to assassinate U.S. Vice President Spiro Agnew by bombing his car.

January 1, 1970: In Turkey, an explosion occurred at the entrance of the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul. Islamic Turkey was becoming a dangerous place to be an American.
January 9, 1970: In France, a TWA 707 airliner en route from Paris to Rome with just 20 passengers and crew aboard was hijacked to Beirut by a lone French terrorist. He said that he wanted to spite Americans and Israelis for their aggression in the Middle East. Considered a hero by Muslims, when the hijacker was taken into custody in Lebanon he was only sentenced to nine months in jail essentially the time he served awaiting trial. He was promptly released and returned to France, where he was tried for illegal possession of weapons and sentenced to eight months in prison, once again, the length of the trial process.
The Popular Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine thought their criminal act was a good thing, so they claimed responsibility for the murder and mutilations. However, since the word has a problem understanding the benefits of being judgmental, and fails to appreciate the concept of responsibility, the murdering Muslim terrorists were set free after the September 6, 1970 hijacking of one Swiss and two U.S. airliners.
January 11, 1970: In Ethiopia, Islamic jihadists shot and killed a U.S. soldier. The Eritrean Islamic Jihad Movement was responsible for the shooting the American.
The Eritrean Islamic Jihad Movement was composed of Islamic terrorists who are financed, trained, and armed by the fundamentalist Islamic government in neighboring Sudan. The terrorist club sought to depose the current secular government in Eritrea and replace it with an Islamic theocracy based upon Sharia Law.
January 21, 1970: In the Philippines, a car bomb exploded behind the Joint U.S. Military Assistance Group headquarters in Manila. Three support staff were injured.
February 10, 1970: In Germany today, three Islamic terrorists killed an Israeli citizen and wounded 11 other Jewish passengers in a grenade attack on a bus at the Munich airport. The militants deployed guns and grenades in their assault on the El Al airport shuttle. The carnage was minimized because the Israeli pilots wrestled the weapons away from the Islamic terrorists.
February 17, 1970: The Germans foiled a PFLP hijacking of an El Al aircraft. However, their temporary success only served to encourage terrorism because the German government foolishly freed the kidnappers two months later.
February 21, 1970: A Swiss Air flight 330 from Zurich bound for Tel Aviv was bombed in mid-air nine minutes after takeoff by the PFLP General Command, a PFLP splinter group. Forty-seven innocent souls lost their lives to Islam, 15 of whom were Israelis. The bomb, placed in the cargo hold, was triggered by a change in atmospheric pressure. While the crew attempted to turn the plane back to the airport, smoke in the cockpit and the loss of electrical power thwarted their efforts,.
February 21, 1970: On the same day that the PFLP-General Command destroyed a Swiss aircraft, killing everyone aboard, the main branch of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine exploded a bomb aboard an Austrian Airlines Caravelle flight from Frankfurt, Germany to Vienna, Austria. Fortunately, the damage was not catastrophic and the plane returned to Frankfurt safely with its 33 passengers.
The bomb was detonated twenty minutes after takeoff by an altimeter reading of fourteen thousand feet.
March 1, 1970: In Italy, a bomb was found in the luggage of an Islamic terrorist aboard an Ethiopian airliner in Rome. The device had been placed by members of the Eritrean Islamic Jihad Movement.

September 11, 1970: In India, a fifth jetliner, a BOAC VC-10, from Bombay to Beirut carrying 150 passengers, was hijacked by the PFLP sympathizer. The plane was also flown to Zarqa, Jordan. The passengers were held hostage pending the release of Miss Khaled from Briton and six other sub-human species. Once they were freed, the plane was blown up. No Islamic country has ever built an airplane, but their citizens became quite apt at destroying them.
September 16, 1970: In what was justified as retaliation for the plane hijackings the week before, but was actually a response to the three assassination attempts on the Jordanian King Hussein’s life, the Islamic nation’s Army attacked Palestinian communities within the kingdom. Since most Jordanian Arabs (70% of the total population) were related to those who call themselves “Palestinians,” and since the ruling monarchy wasn’t among them, this was a preemptive strike designed to keep the majority population subservient to the Hashemite minority. The armed assault on Palestinian refugee camps and communities would continue through July of 1971.
Late September, 1970: In Jordan, the terrorist organization known as Black_September was formed. An outgrowth of Arafat’s Fatah, the Arab League’s PLO, and Egypt’s Fedayeen, they claimed to be descendants of Hasan’s Hashshashin/Assassins of Persian and Crusade infamy.
February 2, 1971: In India, two armed Kashmiri Muslims hijacked an Indian Airlines plane to Pakistan. They demanded that the Indian government release 36 convicted Islamic terrorists held in Kashmir jails. When the government rejected their demands, they blew up the plane.
February 10, 1971: In Sweden, two Croatian Muslims seized control of the Yugoslav consulate in Gothenburg in an unsuccessful attempt to ransom its occupants in exchange for convicted terrorists held in Yugoslav jails. The Yugoslav government refused to meet their demands, and the terrorists surrendered the next day to the Swedish authorities. They were tried and sentenced to 3 years imprisonment. But on September 16, 1972, they were released and flown to Madrid after three Croatians hijacked a Scandinavian airliner and demanded their freedom, along with the release of five Croatians involved in the assassination of the Yugoslav ambassador on April 7, 1971.
April 8, 1971: In Sweden, Croatian terrorists assassinated the Yugoslav ambassador and wounded two Yugoslav diplomats in Stockholm. These murdering jihadists were released from jail when three Croatians militants hijacked a Scandinavian airliner on September 16, 1972, and demanded their freedom.

It was intended to deter tankers from using the Israeli port of Eilat.
August 24, 1971: In Madrid, Spain, a bomb placed by Al Fatah’s Black_September Organization exploded in a Boeing 707 owned by the Royal Jordanian Airline. The aircraft was parked at the Barajas Airport.

Muslims first genocide in SudanDecember, 1971: The first Islamic war in the Sudan was nearing resolution. However, Arab Muslims trying to Sharia Law in all of the Sudan had already killed 500,000 Africans, 80% of them being unarmed civilians, leaving a million more homeless.
British bungling had set the stage for the slaughter in Sudan. As part of the UK’s strategy in the Middle East, the Arab Muslim north and the African animist and Christian south were merged into a single administrative protectorate. In 1953 Egypt and the UK granted “independence” to the Sudan because it was becoming impossible to control under these circumstances. Muslims don’t share power with anyone. When this happened, the Arab Muslims in the north immediately recanted the agreements they had made with the African south, and began attacking them. A succession of Islamic dominated administrations did nothing to stop the terror. It was only when a fundamentalist Muslim vs. Muslim Marxist rift in the north emerged, that the genocide temporarily lost momentum. In 1971, Joseph Lagu became the first to organize Africans in the south, providing a voice for the oppressed.
May 11, 1972: A series of bombs placed by the Baader-Meinhof Gang exploded at the Fifth U.S. Army Corps headquarters in West Germany, killing Colonel Paul Bloomquist and wounding 13 others.
The Baader-Meinhof Group was a violent communist association that acted in partnership with the PFLP. They emerged from the Federal Republic of Germany in the late 1960s. On April 2, 1968, Andreas Baader, the group’s founder, and his girlfriend Gudrun Ensslin, bombed a Frankfurt department store. The well-known German journalist Ulrike Meinhof, helped Baader flee custody. Following the prison break, Meinhof and Baader enrolled in a terrorist training camp run by the Popular Front for Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and became infamous.
Returning from the Islamic terrorist training camp, Baader, Meinhof, and Ensslin engaged in a violent spree of bombings, abductions, and firearm attacks. They professed a hazy mix of Marxism, Maoism, and Muslim beliefs as the terrorized West Germany.
May 24, 1972: In Zimbabwe, a South African Airways Boeing 727 flying from Salisbury to Johannesburg with 66 passengers and crew on board was hijacked by two Lebanese Muslim terrorists who threatened to blow up the aircraft.
May 31, 1972: After receiving the $5 million ransom from the German government, the PLO/PFLP/BSO financed and dispatched members of the Japanese Red Army to attack Lod Airport in Tel Aviv. They bombed the terminal and used automatic weapons to gun down and kill 27 people milling in the crowd, wounding 75 to 80 more. Yes, Islam has always found soulmates in Communist, Socialist, and Fascist circles.
June 10, 1972: The West German embassy in Dublin, Ireland was damaged by a bomb that had been placed by supporters of the Baader-Meinhof Gang of Muslim-trained Marxists.
July 18, 1972: An attaché case containing fifteen pounds of explosives was discovered in the USIS Cultural Center in Manila. The device was set to explode at 1 AM Saturday. The guard did not check the case until Monday morning, and the building was spared only because of the failure of the timing device.
July 31, 1972: A group of hijackers, including George Edward Wright, George Brown, Melvin McNair, his wife Jean Allen McNair, and Joyce T. Burgess, who said they were Black Panther Party sympathizers, took over a Delta Air Lines jet over Florida and directed the plane to Algeria after collecting $1 million in ransom.
August 5, 1972: The PFLP/PLO/BSO attacked an oil refinery in Trieste, Italy. The damage they wrought in the ensuing fire in large oil storage tanks was considerable, estimated at over $7 million. The attack was justified because Germany and Austria allegedly supplied oil to Israel.
Attack on the Munich Airport, February 10, 1970: Three terrorists attacked El Al passengers in a bus at the Munich Airport with guns and grenades. One passenger was killed and 11 were injured. All three terrorists were captured by airport police.

Attack and Hijacking at the Rome Airport December 17, 1973: Five terrorists pulled weapons from their luggage in the terminal lounge at the Rome airport, killing two persons. They then attacked a Pan American 707 bound for Beirut and Tehran, destroying it with incendiary grenades and killing 29 persons, including 4 senior Moroccan officials and 14 American employees of ARAMCO. They then herded 5 Italian hostages into a Lufthansa airliner and killed an Italian customs agent as he tried to escape, after which they forced the pilot to fly to Beirut. After Lebanese authorities refused to let the plane land, it landed in Athens, where the terrorists demanded the release of 2 Arab terrorists. In order to make Greek authorities comply with their demands, the terrorists killed a hostage and threw his body onto the tarmac. The plane then flew to Damascus, where it stopped for two hours to obtain fuel and food. It then flew to Kuwait, where the terrorists released their hostages in return for passage to an unknown destination. The Palestine Liberation Organization disavowed the attack, and no group claimed responsibility for it.
Ambassador to Afghanistan Assassinated, February 14, 1979: Four Afghans kidnapped U.S. Ambassador Adolph Dubs in Kabul and demanded the release of various “religious figures.” Dubs was killed, along with four alleged terrorists, when Afghan police stormed the hotel room where he was being held.

Threats from Libya
When intelligence reports surfaced that Libyan leader Muammar el-Qaddafi had plans to assassinate American diplomats in Rome and Paris, President Reagan expelled all Libyan diplomats from the U.S. (May 6, 1981) and closed Libya’s diplomatic mission in Washington, D.C. Three months later, Reagan ordered U.S. Navy jets to shoot down Libyan fighters if they ventured inside what was known as the “line of death.” (This was the line created by Qaddafi to demarcate Libya’s territorial waters, which he said extended more than 100 miles off the country’s shoreline; the U.S. and other maritime nations recognized Libyan territorial waters as extending only 12 miles from shore.) As expected, the Libyan Air Force counter-attacked and Navy jets shot down two SU-22 warplanes about 60 miles off the Libyan coast.

… and we know terrorism has not stopped…. it continues and we must be vigilant. We must not forget. We must not put our heads in the sand. We must demand that our elected officials stop playing politics. This isn’t a game. The common thread in all the attacks is that there is a deep seeded hatred for us.

According to them, we must submit or die. That is their goal- it is just that simple… What is our goal? I hope it is live free or die… All preceding information is an incomplete sampling of terrorist activity pulled directly from:
