Libyan attempts Norway massacre in Turkey

How easy would a similar attack be in Malta for any disgruntled Libyan's?

Norway news

A Libyan gunman who wounded two people at a popular Istanbul tourist attraction had attempted to carry out a massacre in the Ottoman-era Topkapı Palace, news reports said on Friday. The gunman, identified as 36-year-old Samir Salem Ali Elmadhavri, wounded a soldier and a private security guard before police snipers killed him. The motive for the attack is under investigation and it is not known if the attacker was affiliated with any groups or organizations, Today's Zaman reported.

Video footage released by Turkish media outlets on Friday shows police and the Libyan gunman exchanging fire near the entrance gate of the palace. News reports said he shouted, "This will be a massacre like in Norway," referring to a July 22 massacre at a summer camp organized by the youth division of Norway's ruling Labor Party, in which 32-year-old Anders Behring Breivik shot randomly at participants and killed 69 people before being captured by police.

It was not possible to verify Elmadhavri's threat from the footage. Private NTV news stations said the man, who arrived at the scene in a car with a Syrian license plate, shouted in English.

Reports said non-commissioned officer Levent Torgut successfully stalled the Libyan gunman for 45 minutes, preventing him from proceeding inside the palace complex and reaching hundreds of tourists who were lined up to buy tickets.

Elmadhavri was killed by snipers after a clash that lasted more than an hour. His attack came on the same day as Turkey announced sanctions on the Syrian regime to pressure Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to stop a bloody crackdown on anti-regime protests.

'Iran strike aftermath couldn't be as bad as nuclear Iran'

Former Mossad head Danny Yatom says Israel can't afford to wonder if Tehran "will go crazy and throw a bomb on us," says "painful" IDF response would stop rocket fire from Hezbollah and Hamas.

   The outcome of a strike on Iran's nuclear sites, no matter how destructive, can never be as bad for Israel as an Iran armed with nuclear weapons, former Mossad chief Danny Yatom said on Wednesday at a security conference at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies at Bar-Ilan University.

They could be scenes from a disaster film with rescuers donning futuristic gas marks and carrying survivors to safety.

But these pictures show an exercise simulating a nuclear, biological and chemical attack at La Defense metro station, just west of Paris.

Busy week For Malta's military bomb disposal unit

Ominous signs...

Times of Malta

Updated - The airport arrivals lounge was briefly evacuated this afternoon after a man raised suspicion when he left a suitcase in the hall and ran out, eyewitnesses said.

The incident happened at about 4 p.m. The suitcase was in the street side of the building, close to the car park ticketing machines.

The building was sealed off and army bomb disposal experts were on the scene to check the suitcase.

The suitcase was 'blown up' using a high pressure water jet. It was found to be empty.

Bomb maker on the loose in Malta

Car bombings throughout the Middle East are the usual means of assassinating targets, only this one in Malta failed to have its desired result.

Sends a clear message though of what is out there in Maltese society now.

The Maltese are not known for such sophisticated car bombings, or even comitting such terrorist acts so I would be looking at the intended targets Arab associates who would have links to Libyan terrorists, and any possible grievences there might be due to his past criminal dealings with them.

Now Gadaffi is gone and a new Libya is emerging, there is a new proliferation of all types of weaponry coming out of the Country, and many Gadaffi Loyalists making their escape and setting up home and business (legitimate/terrorist) in other parts of the World with Malta a favourite destination due to its historical links with the Gadaffi regime, its proximity to Libya, and its ever expanding expat community living on the island.

Times of Malta

Quote: Forensic expert Anthony Abela Medici, backed by several years of experience in the field, argued that it must have been a bomb with highly explosive material.

Judging by footage and photographs he had seen on the media, since he is not involved in the case, Dr Abela Medici agreed it looked like it was “very unlikely” to have been planted in a few minutes.

This indicates, he said, that it was either being transported or else the person who placed it got the timing wrong.

Such a bomb would have to be manufactured by experienced people, especially because high-explosive material and the detonators to set it off are not so easily available.

Dr Abela Medici said this explosion reminded him of a similar car bomb that killed Emanuel Micallef in December 1969 in Paola. That time, however, the bomb was connected to the engine and went off when the ignition was switched on.

North Africa's emerging Tunisian Islamic State

Tunisia's Islamists hail arrival of the 'sixth caliphate'

The Islamist politician likely to become Tunisia's first democratically elected prime minister has alarmed liberals and secularists by claiming the arrival of the "sixth caliphate", a controversial term for a Muslim empire.

Hamadi Jebeli, secretary-general of Ennahda, the moderate Islamist party which romped to victory in last month's elections, told a rally in the city of Sousse: "My brothers, you are at a historic moment in a new cycle of civilisation, God willing. We are in sixth caliphate, God willing."

Gadaffi's End game scenario - The day after

Hand all your most deadly dangerous weapons to Al Qaeda's Libyan wing to continue the Jihad against the West when gone.

"Mad dog of war" and one time the Worlds No.1 State sponsor of international terrorism, so he knew what he was doing when it comes to terrorism and who the best people to give his undeclared weaponry too were.

To think that these weapons are not now in the hands of Al Qaeda is naive.

It doesn't take much to cause a catastrophe...

Gadaffi's secret stash of chemical weapons

You can only wonder whether Al Qaead's Libyan wing have traced some other secret stash and plundered it to bolster their arsenal that already comprises some of Gadaffi's surface to air missiles ready for the coming North African front opening up in the Med.

David Cameron said last night that the new Libyan government had told him it had identified an arsenal that had been ‘kept hidden from the world’.

Diplomatic sources said several sites thought to contain mustard gas agent and other chemicals had been discovered across the country and were now under armed guard.

Al Qaeda's Libyan wing has Gadaffi's weapons

Times of Malta

Al-Qaeda’s North Africa franchise acknowledged it had acquired part of slain Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi’s arsenal, in comments by one of its leaders quoted yesterday.

Mokhtar Belmokhtar, believed to be one of the leaders of Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), made the remarks to Mauritanian news agency ANI, which has carried interviews and statements from the group in the past.

“We have been one of the main beneficiaries of the revolutions in the Arab world,” said Mr Belmokhtar, an Algerian national.

“As for our acquisition of Libyan armament, that is an absolutely natural thing,” he said, without elaborating on the nature of the weapons purportedly acquired.

Officials and experts have expressed concern that part of Colonel Gaddafi’s considerable stock of weapons could end up in the hands of AQIM, which has bases in the Sahel and currently holds several foreign hostages.

According to several experts, AQIM has acquired surface-to-air missiles which could pose a threat to flights over the region.

Mr Belmokhtar also claimed a level of ideological convergence existed between his movement and the Islamist rebels who eventually toppled Col Gaddafi last month and became Libya’s new rulers.

“We did not fight , alongside them in the field against the Gaddafi forces,” he said. “But young Islamists, jihadis... were the ones spearheading the revolution in Libya.”

The National Transitional Council now in charge of Libya owes its victory over Col Gaddafi’s 42-year rule partly to Western military backing and claims to seek the establishment of a moderate Islamic administration.

A new game begins

The black flag of Al Qaeda was hoisted in Libya yesterday as Nato formally ended its military campaign.

The standard fluttered from the roof of the courthouse in Benghazi, where the country’s new rulers have imposed sharia law since seizing power.

Seen as the seat of the revolution, the judicial building was used by rebel forces to establish their provisional government and media centre.

The flag has been spotted on the courthouse several times, prompting denials from the National Transitional Council that it was responsible.

Complete with Arabic script declaring ‘there is no God but Allah’ and a full moon underneath, it was hoisted alongside the Libyan national flag.

There are reports that extremists have been seen on Benghazi’s streets at night, waving the Al Qaeda flag and shouting ‘Islamiya, Islamiya! No East, nor West

Al Qaeda's stolen Libyan weapons


In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, John Brennan, said he was worried about the number of machine guns and surface-to-air missiles that have gone missing during the Libyan revolution.

He said it was important to prevent them falling into the hands of al-Qaeda's North African branch, al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) which has "close relations" with the branches in Yemen and Pakistan.

The Daily Telegraph reported earlier this week that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard had also obtained missiles after dispatching agents to take advantage of a free-for-all in Libya.

Riot inside Safi detention centre

A little 'glimpse' into the underlying threat facing the National Security of Malta.

Unlike other EU Nations, Malta is a small island so the dangerous effects of mass migration from Africa hitting their shores like on Lampedusa that has already been conquered, is increased amongst a population of less than half a million.

Libyan Rebel Leader killed by Islamic fundamentalists

Further reading: Paceville suicide bombing

The threat of international terrorism hangs over the Western world like a ominous dark cloud. We know it’s out there somewhere but we don’t want to think about it as a living daily reality, until the day it emerges from the shadows of the unknown leaving death and devastation against the innocent in its wake. Then we have no alternative but to face up and deal with the consequences and the aftermath of the new reality now staring us in the face.

Could there really ever be a terrorist atrocity in Malta? That is the question I contemplate when I doubt my thoughts (but just look at Malta’s history).

Going about your daily routine of living life, you could never think or imagine that a murderous terrorist atrocity could ever happen because you are completely and blissfully unaware of the true facts of the threat out there lurking in the unknown. Walking in the worlds that you never pass through, and speaking and listening in the places you will never hear or see.

Who cares is most people’s flippant attitude, indifferent to the idea of a terrorist attack; with it not even a thought in the minds of 95% of the population as they go about their everyday lives. Maybe blissful ignorance is the best approach, but I am sure that the grieving families would think very differently if their loved ones were savagely ripped from their lives, caught up in the full horror and carnage of a terrorist attack in Malta whilst out enjoying themselves.

Only God truly knows what is lurking out there in the unknown and the full terrorist threat facing a Country because there is only so much our intelligence services can know as they seek to defend us from those who are operating in the unknown, whilst they fight against the darkness on our behalf. They are our final line of National defence but they are human, so that makes them fallible, which means we can never ever truly be safe from those with the intent to harm us, especially if their driving motivation is one of ‘war’ which brings you back to the contemplation question; could there really ever be a terrorist atrocity in Malta?

Of course there is the possibility, so the answer is yes, even though doubt of it occurring is the general consensus because of blissful ignorance of the facts and the normal natural doubt of “No, it would never happen” because your mind does not want to think or believe it could happen. Only when you start looking at the facts does a picture start to emerge and you realise that “Yes it could happen”.

300 miles away a civil war is raging in Libya under the shadow of the EU military air supremacy who are seeking the assassination of the living tyrant Colonel Gadaffi who is well known for his State sponsorship of international terrorism against EU Countries and the U.S. Malta being part of the EU and so close to Libya has played a central role in the current actions against Gadaffi and his regime which means that the special relationship the Maltese people rely on is now null and void. That, along with there being an army of thousands of young moslem men from Somalia and elsewhere across Africa now living encamped in refugee camps on the island who arrived via Libya courtesy of their generous Libyan hosts. An army of young moslem men between the ages of 20 - 40 with not much else to do each day but sit contemplating their new lives in Malta, living trapped on a small Christian island in a nasty refugee camp and listening to news of Christian Crusading wars in their local mosques and on their Arab/Somali speaking news channels. God only knows the conversations that go on between them in their tents and containers and what is planned in their hearts and minds for the future.

Add to that mix seasoned jihadi’s from the different conflict zones of the world, or recruiters for the global jihad for those conflict zones living on the island for whatever reason and you have the potential for something very deadly and sinister operating in the unknown of Maltese life.

I have seen the Pakistani and Arab jihadi’s at Friday prayers at the Marsa detention centre mosque, and anyone who knows what they are looking at can clearly see the types of people they are (The eyes of a man are the window to his soul), but in a politically correct world nobody wants to call a spade a spade until it’s too late, or the foolish believe you can judge a man by his smile.

On top of all of this you also now have a newly built massive American Embassy on Malta slap bang in the middle of the Mediterranean between the war zones in North Africa and the Middle East, and the landing target of Southern Europe for the Exodus of African refugees setting off from Libya which makes the Embassy and their hosts target No.1 in this part of the world within the jihadi psyche. Look at the Kenyan bombing for an example.

You only need one jihadi with intent and you have a ticking time-bomb that causes a ripple effect amongst the local Islamic population. But let’s be realistic, there are probably upwards of hundreds of ideological jihadi’s now living in Malta amongst the 4,000 plus refugee/migrants scattered around the island, and in the refugee camps, all talking and preparing for the future.

So will it happen? Only God knows, but one thing is for certain is that Malta on the outside seems to be wholly unprepared for the threat facing its National Security from within, which is a shame considering its rich history dating back to 1565.

One can only hope that if the hereditary Knighthood is still alive, that they step up to the plate and defend the island once again, because at this moment in time the island is currently being occupied by a potential 21st century Islamic foreign army and slowly conquered, not just by the Africans either, but by their moslem brothers the Turks too. Inevitably turning the island into an Islamic enclave within a couple of generations, if not sooner dependent on how quick the refugee population continues to grow, and the level of their overt aggressive Islamisation of Malta and their ability to enter the political sphere takes place. If this happens then the memory of La Vallette and his fellow Knights will have been destroyed in this generation by the current leadership of the Knights of Malta, and will be well documented about in history if we travel another several hundred years into the future.

Are the hereditary Knights of Malta and their inducted few, nothing more than a rich man’s gentleman’s club of high society, cloaked in the ancient garb and making themselves feel good by giving to charity whilst sitting back getting fat from their wealth whilst all around them their island bastion burns from within?

If something does happen in Malta then the question will be asked about the Knights whose achievements from the island of Malta still reverberate to the present day.

What would the Maltese justice system do if it caught a few Arabs plotting an act of international terrorism somewhere in the world on Maltese soil? Probably nothing because to my limited knowledge they do not have any real anti-terror legislation covering such events because the legal system is not up to date with the current threat from international terrorism like other Western Nations who have awoken to the threat staring them in the face.

I imagine there is a big list on the desks of MI6 & the CIA of suspected and actual known international Arab/Islamic terrorists living in Malta or using it as a base due to its lax internal security over such matters. Matters over looked until now because who would have ever thought bombing Gadaffi was on the cards and the ripple effect it could cause that could go right up into the heart of Maltese society and effect the future life of the Nation (remove tourism from the island and what would be the effect?).

Are the Maltese even looking under the surface of reality to see what is going on upon their soil, or are their heads buried deep in the sand?

What would be the consequences if there was a suicide bombing in Paceville, killing scores of foreign tourists, and wounding many more, and the government was warned but did not act to prevent such a scenario?

When I think to myself will there be an attack in Malta, firstly doubt fills my mind because of the false sense of security everyone lives in, and then reality based upon the facts breaks through and it becomes a very real plausible possibility.

Who would have thought that the world would awake to news of a lone Norwegian gunman killing 85 innocent Norwegian children, and blowing up a government building? But it did, and people now face the reality and consequences of this act that was planned in the unknown, out of sight and mind of those who could have prevented it. The same could be said about 9/11 in America of 7/7 in the UK, or even the Pan Am flight Gadaffi was involved in blowing out of the sky over Lockerbie.

Will something happen in Malta? Only God knows, but I pray that it doesn’t, but it is all out there to become happen and become a reality…it might not happen tomorrow but the passage of time brings change and only God knows the future.

As the old saying goes “prevention is better than cure”.

One last passing thought, the war to topple Gadaffi has been going on for several months now, along with his attempted assassination and that of his family, but he survives to this day and has publicly declared about bringing the war to Europe and the Mediterranean. To my knowledge he has not counter striked against his aggressors anywhere in the world yet which could only mean a terrorist atrocity upon their home soil.

How long until the world awakes to a Colonel Gadaffi inspired and funded terrorist attack somewhere in retaliation for the EU-US bombing of him and his Country?

Will it happen? Can it happen? Will it be Malta?

Somali terror cell in America

When a plane drops out of the sky

This is just a very realistic thought I had this morning after watching a passenger plane flying over Malta preparing to land and thinking how easy it would be for someone with the intent to shoot it down out of the sky. All those Western European tourists from Germany, France, Britain and even America for example, completely oblivious to the danger of being a sitting target floating in the air for someone with a grudge against their respective countries, as they are flying into land to enjoy their holidays.

I did think that Malta is lucky in the fact that it has never had a serious air disaster.

It is very surprising that Gadaffi and his loyal Libyan regime have not hit back yet after the targeted bombing of him and his country, with Nato seeking to assassinate him, and members of his family already being killed from the airstrikes.

It has only got to be a matter of time now until the world awakes to a terrorist attack inflicted upon one of the EU Nations that have lined up against the current regime.

International security analysts have stated that the only real weapon left for Gadaffi to target those EU countries is international terrorism with him recently addressing a gathering of up to 100,000 Libyan supporters in Tripoli threatening to target Europe and bring the war to the Mediterranean, which could only mean through acts of terrorism.

What would you do in his shoes when you are sitting on billions of dollars of oil revenue, you have Christian Crusader Nations bombing your country into submission seeking your assassination, killing members of your family, and you have a global network of moslem jihad’s ideologically aligned to Al Qaeda to tap into, along with other terrorist groups like Al Shabaab from Somalia?

Not a very hard one to work out is it…especially knowing he has a history of funding acts of Islamic terror against the U.S and European Countries. This is why Nato has no alternative but to remove him forever to remove the threat to our future security, and for the rebel government to say he can stay in the country as long as he hands over power is a joke.

(Will the new Al Qaeda leadership reach out to the Gadaffi regime to build bridges to fight the Christian Crusaders together? It has been reported that Al Qaeda have been hit by the credit crunch so tapping into Gadaffi’s vast oil wealth to wage war against America and the West with is a very real possibility and suits both parties)

I hope it’s not true but I would say it’s not if a terrorist attack happens, but when and where now.

Malta is on the frontline 300 miles from Libya, is a hub for Nato’s bombing campaign although its denied, and the Maltese government has clearly positioned itself behind the EU’s actions, going as far as to hosting talks with rebel leaders from the oil city of Benghazi. I wonder what Gadaffi thinks about Malta and the current Maltese government now?

Will Malta be targeted? That’s open to speculation but based upon the facts it cannot be ruled out.

Will a passenger plane carrying Western tourists over the Med be shot down? Who knows, it’s just a thought based upon reality.

Gadaffi has a history of targeting passenger planes, like the PanAm flight over Lockerbie in Scotland that killed everyone on-board and people on the ground, so there being someone out there somewhere around the Med planning on shooting a passenger plane out of the sky as an act of retribution and to influence EU Nations political stance and will to carry on bombing Libya is a very real possibility. Added to this fact that makes this a very realistic scenario, it has been reported that Gadaffi has opened up his arms cache and handed out surface to air missiles that would be ideal for shooting down just such a passenger plane.

You have to wonder where those missiles are now and whose hands they are in.

Are they sitting in a small fishing boat floating in the Mediterranean Sea or are they already on dry land somewhere? If it is true, and Gadaffi has handed out his surface to air missiles then they are in the hands of groups hostile to the EU-US Coalition who do want to inflict serious harm to their people with passenger planes the usual preferred target of Islamic fundamentalists.

The Coalition war in the Middle East with frontlines in Iraq and Afghanistan has now also reached North Africa with Libya the new military frontline although at this stage the targeted airstrikes are classed as a humanitarian campaign. Southern Europe, home soil to several of those EU Nations that make up part of the Coalition army bombing Islamic countries and killing moslems across the Middle East and North Africa are now within spitting distance with only the Mediterranean sea and any islands in-between separating the two.

How long until something happens and the world awakes to the horror of a terrorist attack funded by Gadaffi?

He has publicly stated that he will bring the war to Europe and the Mediterranean.

Will Gadaffi or someone else aligned with him target Malta seeking to remove the political will of the Maltese to support the island being used as a Christian Crusader base in the Med, thus attempting to cut off a vital hub for operations across North Africa and the Middle East?

If Malta is targeted it will be Western tourists attacked because murdering them will be the most effective. Killing citizens from the EU-US will influence their respective countries domestic politics on the Libyan campaign and destroy Malta’s economy in the process which is built upon tourism, for their support of the campaign.

A passenger plane being shot out of the sky, or a nightclub bombing are very real possibilities based upon not only Gadaffi’s past history but also that of Al Qaeda and other groups like Al Shabaab who are also operating in this part of the world, and the fact that Gadaffi has handed out his surface to air missiles.

I should imagine there is plenty of available semtex scattered around the place for a nightclub bombing because he was supplying the IRA with the stuff for them to fight the British government with.

The long term approach for destroying Malta is thousands of African moslems from war torn countries like Somalia and the Sudan washing up on the island from Libya and eventually overwhelming the placejust like has happened to Lampedusa.

MI5 'misjudged' Bali bomb threat

Daily Mail

The Security Service, MI5, was tonight severely rebuked by MPs for a "serious misjudgment" of the terrorist threat to British nationals in the run up to the Bali bomb blast.

The Parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee said MI5 failed to upgrade its threat assessment for Indonesia despite concluding just days before the bombing that terrorist attacks on British or US targets could start at any time.

As a result the travel advice issued by the Foreign Office (FCO) was not updated and "did not accurately reflect the threat" to British tourists.

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) -- A defiant Moammar Gadhafi threatened Friday to carry out attacks in Europe against "homes, offices, families," unless NATO halts its campaign of airstrikes against his regime in Libya.

The Libyan leader, sought by the International Criminal Court for a brutal crackdown on anti-government protesters, delivered the warning in a telephone message played to thousands of supporters gathered in the main square of the capital Tripoli.

It was one of the largest pro-government rallies in recent months, signaling that Gadhafi can still muster significant support. A green cloth, several hundred meters long and held aloft by supporters, snaked above the crowd filling Tripoli's Green Square. Green is Libya's national color.

Russia lines up behind Gadaffi and there can be no clearer sign to the World that it is now 'Game on' in the civil war for regime change in Libya than a photo opportunity with the former Russian provincial governor sitting across a Chess board.

Daily Mail

The unrest in Libya reached a crescendo once again yesterday - but the country's leader, Muammar Gaddafi, appeared as if he didn't have a care in the world as he played a game of chess during an appearance on state television.

Colonel Gaddafi met with the president of the international chess federation and former Russian provincial governor, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, in Libya's capital, Tripoli.

Mr Ilyumzhinov said the Libyan leader told him he had no intention of leaving the country, according to Russia's Interfax news agency.

London: Behind closed doors

Last week saw a visit from the Maltese Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi, to the British Prime Minister David Cameron and Foreign Secretary William Hague in London where Libya was top of the agenda.  Then 2 days later Rebel Libyan opposition leaders also take a trip to London to see the British PM about more weapons and firepower to fight the Gaddafi regime with.

A sceptic or someone whose regime was being bombed into submission, with himself and his family the target for assasination would say that there is an EU axis emerging, and the centre of that axis is the neighbouring Country of Malta.

Libya - Stale Mate

Libyan leader Colonel Gaddafi today refused to give up power but said that he was ready for a ceasefire and negotiations provided NATO 'stop its planes'.
Gaddafi looked to have been winning with government forces held at bay in the east and around the besieged city of Misrata, while fighting for control of the western mountains.

But weeks of Western air strikes have failed to dislodge the Libyan leader and the war has instead become locked in a painful stalemate.

Justification: The mind of Islamic terrorism Part 1 - Gaddafi

With most people you talk to in Malta about the possibility of a terrorist attack happening on the island, the response you get back from them is one of bewilderment. It is so far out of their comprehension that when spoken into their reality it is alien to them. So the initial response is “what, Malta? No, why would anyone want to attack Malta”, as if to think such a thing is strange. You then point out a few facts to them and what before was so far out of their comprehension and a little strange, then becomes a reality based upon a simple understanding of the global threat posed by militant Islam, the Islamic fundamentalist ideology behind it, what constitutes a legitimate target in their eyes, and the current international geo- political scene of which Malta plays its part, especially with the exodus on the way from North Africa.

Then there are those you speak to who do realise the very serious threat posed to Malta who have knowledge of domestic and international political and cultural affairs, and their response is that there is absolutely no serious mechanisms in place to prevent a terrorist atrocity on the island. You can pretty much walk into any building, even government buildings, with a rucksack on your back with absolutely no security checks whatsoever. Although I do not personally believe that if there was a terrorist attack on the island they would hit a government building. If they were to hit a place like Paceville, they would destroy a large part of the Country’s economy in an instant because Malta lives on tourism which might be seen as recompense by someone like Gaddafi, and they would murder many Westerners whose Countries are viewed as the enemy, which is always the aim of Islamic fundamentalists.

Maybe it’s the false sense of security that the Maltese live in because nothing serious of note has ever happened on the island towards them so there is no awareness of the ever present threat lurking in our world today. The attitude of the population is that everyone around the world are friends with the Maltese people because it’s a tourist island and Malta doesn’t take a position on anything (wrong) so no one is ever going to commit a terrorist atrocity here.

In the new world of international Islamic terrorism, with wars raging throughout the Middle East and North Africa, and terrorist attacks happening and being planned against European Countries, no EU State can be complacent to the threat posed to their people. Unless the attitude of those employed to protect the people is “Nothing will ever happen, and if it does then we will act”.

Malta’s profile was all over the world news 24 hours a day for over a month before the current joint EU - US war against Gaddafi in Libya. It played a pivotal role in the build up to the bombs being dropped on his Country with thousands of international troops embarking and disembarking from the island and the place being used as a military hub in the Med. This is how the island has always been used historically. This role Malta played was put out through the worlds media as a humanitarian exercise, which amongst other things it was, with thousands of people evacuated from Libya to Malta before the first bombs were dropped, but there can be no doubting that Malta, as part of the EU, was central to the war and bombing campaign that is now raging against Gaddafi in Libya.

The Maltese believe that Gaddafi would never attack Malta because of the historical partnership/friendship between the 2 countries. That was before Malta played staging post and launch pad to the current war against him and his regime that is aimed at his complete removal from power and the possible assassination of him and his family, with the Prime Minister of Malta vocally supporting that aim on a political level through the media.

Malta might not be the one dropping the bombs on Gadafi but her European and American allies are, combined with her moral and tactical support due to her location. This makes Malta culpable and a direct enemy now, part of the Christian coalition against an Arab/moslem Nation.

With Gadafi having nothing to lose due to the fact that he and his family are fighting for their very survival after stating they will fight to the end, under those circumstances any action against the aggressor, wherever and whoever, would be justified in their eyes.

(War is War…Death, blood, destruction and devastation is all a part of it, whoever is on the receiving end.)

Don’t forget the 2 Libyan fighter jets that arrived on the island either, the ones that Gadafi requested the Maltese government return to him which was refused. How do you think he feels about that snub along with every other snub from the Maltese government, along with them being tacit supporters of those bombing him and his Country right at this moment, as they seek to assassinate him?

Wherever he is right now, I am sure he and his family are not very happy with Malta who he viewed as being one of his closest allies, who sold him out at a time of his greatest need.

On a political level the Maltese government could not refuse the EU – US using Malta as their staging post on the run up to the war. This coalition is obviously a lot more powerful than the crippled Libyan government under Gaddafi. But the EU – US is not in the firing range of Libya with only 300 miles of water separating the 2 Countries, along with a large network of ex-pats living on the island. Of course there are Libyan ex-pats throughout Europe, with European Countries now fearful of the threat, but Malta is in a completely different situation because it is so close.

Who knows what type of terrorist infrastructure Gadafi has in place on the island? The one and only mosque in Malta near the Marsa detention centre that is filled with moslems from all different Countries every Friday was built by him. You never know what type of weapons and explosives he has stored up here over the years just in case of this current eventuality he is now facing which is called strategic planning. It would be naïve to think that he has nothing on the island due to its strategic location to Libya itself, and Southern Europe. He did place the bomb on-board the Pan Am flight that blew up over Lockerbie in Malta, so there is a history of his State sponsored terrorism operating on the island.

The threat from Gaddafi is only one of the threats now posed to the National Security of Malta and could push him to fund another terrorist network to commit an atrocity here, unless he arms his long range missiles with chemical warheads and starts firing them off in the direction of Malta but I cannot see that (but you never know).

Gaddafi was the worlds No.1 State sponsor of international terrorism so he is more than able to start waging a guerilla war against Nation States on their own soil by funding Islamic militants like Al Qaeda, Al Shabab, or even ‘the IRA’, although the IRA is a direct threat to Britain not Malta. Due to his vast oil wealth, he has the financial capability to fund any willing terrorist groups who have their hands out needing money to wage their own war against their mutual enemy. It is this potential insidious terrorist threat against the EU – US coalition Countries, why there is no alternative but his complete removal from power now. European Countries and the United States have been on the receiving end of his State funded terrorism over the past 30 years, so to leave him in power would only mean waiting for a new wave of terrorist attacks.

The momentum to remove him has begun and it will not stop now until the job is done.

Removing him is the only logical option on the table. We have to just wait and see how the war on the ground in Libya pans out now; at the minute it looks like a stale mate which gives Gaddafi breathing space to maneuver and plot his revenge against his enemies. He cannot fight a conventional war against the EU – US coalition, so the only type of warfare he has left in his arsenal is international terrorism against innocent civilian populations. This could be used to force public opinion against the coalition bombing of him and his country, especially if it was wrapped up as an attack by Islamic militants fighting against Western Crusaders attacking moslem lands.

An Islamic inspired terrorist attack happens and then Arabs/moslems fill our TV screens day and night giving the reasons and justifications for why it happened, thus influencing public opinion towards their view point amongst those who awaken to the new reality staring them in the face who want answers to why it happened. The Arabs/moslems on TV will say they do not condone it “BUT” and then paint the picture of big bad Western powers (EU – US) attacking defenceless Arab/moslem Nations like Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan, which then changes the political landscape. This then opens the door for the Islamic religion to come in and start to dominate public life because a terrorist attack kicks the door down and gives them a voice into the Nation.

Bomb in one hand and a supposed holy book in the other…

We wont stop bombing till he is gone!

Now it IS regime change: Cameron, Obama and Sarkozy promise to keep bombing Libya until Gaddafi is gone
David Cameron, Barack Obama and Nicolas Sarkozy upped the stakes in the Libya conflict last night as they vowed to fight on until Colonel Gaddafi is ousted.

In a joint article, the British, American and French leaders warned it would be an ‘unconscionable betrayal’ were Nato to stop bombing with the dictator still in power.

Gaddafi must ‘go and go for good’ before rebuilding of the country could begin, they said, rejecting calls for an immediate ceasefire.

Al Qaeda now have Gadafi's surface to air missiles

Colonel Gadafi has already stated that he will target passenger jets in the Mediterranean, and Malta is slap bang in the middle of the Med, with tourism its No.1 National income.  That means the majority of those tourists visiting the island will be coming on planes over the Med.

Pot the planes criss-cross the water like sitting ducks for Al Qaeda stationed on the ground in the Libyan desert..

You cannot take Gadafi's threats with a pinch of salt either considering he blew the Pan Am 103 out of the sky over Lockerbie in Scotland in 1988 killing 243 passengers, 16 crew and 11 people on the ground.

Now Al Qaeda have the opportunity to do his dirty work for him and you can be sure they wont be thinking about the pan Malta-Libya friendship that the Maltese are relying on, not to be attacked.

They just enjoy killing Westerners in their holy war with passenger jets being one of the preferred global Islamic terrorist targets over the years.

Imagine the coup on the propaganda front for Al Qaeda to shoot down a passenger jet over the Med?

Italy's island of Lampedusa Conquered

* Almost 19,000 migrants from Libya and Tunisia have arrived since January
* 3,000 immigrants arrive in just THREE DAYS on islands of Lampedusa
* Population of fishing island normally numbers around 5,300 residents
* Locals occupy town hall and blockade harbour in bid to stop influx
* Navy boats being sent to disperse migrants to other areas of Italy

An Italian island has been overwhelmed by immigrants from north Africa who have more than doubled the island's population, prompting fierce protests from local people.

Thousands of Tunisians have flooded into Lampedusa, a tiny island south of Sicily, after the fall of their President - with a further influx feared from refugees fleeing violence in Libya.

The number of immigrants has been reported as being just over 5,500 today, with more than 3,000 coming in the last three days alone. The normal population of the quiet island, which relies on fishing and tourism, is around 5,300.

Example: Recruitment of an Islamic terror cell

The people in this video are there only as an example and this in no way means or implies that they are associated with Islamic terrorism.  This video gives you an example of how easy it would be for a committed terrorist to select, recruit and create a sleeper cell based upon a 20 minute walk around the detention center.

You decide for yourself if there has been any Islamic terror recruiting going on in Malta over the past 5 years, out of sight and mind from gazing eyes.

The video below accompanies this post:

A Maltese Islamic terror cell – Something to think about

Daily Mail: Libyan's plot revenge attacks on UK streets

Those who have their heads buried in the psychological sand would scoff at such a thought or assumption, but trust me this is very real and there is supportive video evidence to corroborate the possibility.

The reasons and justification for such an Islamic inspired terrorist attack will come later.

There is the possibility of several terrorist cells being formed in Malta by a variety of groups, but this possible scenario relates to the refugee community now living in Malta.

The overwhelming majority of African refugee’s living in Malta are on the island for humanitarian reasons and at this stage are not a threat to anyone, but amongst those refugees it would be naïve to say that none of them are linked to Islamic terrorist groups back in their own countries, or are supporters of such groups. In the UK for example, most of the major leaders of international Islamic terrorism within the Country were at one time refugees to Britain, so why should the threat from within the refugee population in Malta be any different to anywhere else in the World?

Lets say there are around 3000 moslem refugees in Malta, out of the approximately 6000 that are on the island, and out of that 3000, 85% reject all forms of Islamic terrorism and support, that leaves 15%. 15% of 3000 is 400 which would mean there is the possibility of 400 who believe in violent jihad. That means for example, you have a pool of 400 moslems who either support violent jihad, or are willing to carry out a suicide bombing attack or something similar, either in Malta or abroad.

(You have to think about those figures yourself, but I stood in a room with about 50 Colonel Gadafi supporters just at one centre.)

In the UK there have been several cases of moslems setting out on the path of violent jihad within Britain after being recruited and radicalised by trained moslem terrorists, who have then gone on and traveled abroad to carry out their Islamic inspired suicide missions.

For those with their heads buried in the psychological sand, there are a number of wars going on around the world that involve Western Powers from the U.S and E.U, with Al Qaeda declaring the whole world is now open for jihad, so the threat to every Nation of an insidious terrorist attack is very real.

Even to Malta, so heed these words.

There is a large Somalian refugee community in Malta, and Al Qaeda have a close relationship with Al Shabab which is their East African wing that operates around the area of Mogadishu in Somalia. Most of the Somali refugees you speak to in the detention centers come from Mogadishu and are moslem. This is not to say they are all Islamic terrorists, this is to say there is a link and possible terror threat lurking in their midst.

Al Shabab were the ones who carried out the terrorist bombing of a bar in Uganda during the World Cup.

In Britain the Internal Security Services (MI5) have been very concerned about Somalians from the British community travelling back to their homeland, being trained up and then returning and committing a terrorist attack in the Country (This is a very real threat).

Is it beyond the realms of possibility that Islamic terrorists have travelled from not just Somalia, but other African Nations, along the refugee route into Europe and are now in Malta?

And if they are in Malta what are they doing?

Have they given up their religious ideals and returned to a normal civilised life?

Or have they found another Western Christian battlefield and another potential pool of Islamic terrorist recruits to wage their holy war with?

After 5 years they are now deeply entrenched within Malta, out of sight and mind. We had a video camera phone for 20 minutes and confirmed everything in this scenario below, so that tells me that these are not just words but truth. Maybe you knew this all already as you are reading this, but if not, then now you know what’s out there.

A scenario of the creation of an Islamic terrorist cell.

Amongst the 3000 moslem refugees you have 1 who is wholly committed to the global jihad and has fought on the frontlines in Somalia. Or you have a moslem wholly committed to the global jihad from another Arab Country like Libya, Syria, Lebanon or Palestine for example. It only takes one commander who knows what he is doing to form a terror cell, and the possibility is that there are multiple cells out there.

This Islamic terrorist commander frequents the mosques around the island and eventually works out who are the ones who support the global jihad and who are the ones who do not. This separates people in his mind and he knows which individuals to align himself with. He then has a trusted few who think like him which gives each of them peace and security in their group with which to share their beliefs and ideas.

Next step is to gather the recruits who would carry out a mission as part of their violent jihad in the name of Islam.
They would travel the mosques and groups and eventually come across the vulnerable ones who were away from their home countries, away from their families, living in dirty refugee camps who hated their lives so much at this moment in time that they would see suicide as being a way out of their living misery. The recruiters would then fill their heads with the knowledge that there is nothing greater for a moslem than to die in jihad for allah and that he would reward them with 72 virgins in paradise, and include safe passage for a host of his family for his sacrificial act in the name of Islam. So rather than commit suicide for nothing, allow allah to use him for his glory and service by killing the dirty kuffar (non-moslems).

Then the radicalisation process would start with all the justifications for an act of suicide in the name of Islam.

Islamic leaders of the jihad can religiously justify suicide bombings in the minds of their followers so once they have the right candidates, its just a matter of time until the cell is indoctrinated and moved from being a sleeper cell (unknown) and filled with suicidal hatred of non-moslems, into an active terror cell like the 19 hijackers on 9/11 or the 4 suicide bombers on 7/7.

If there is a sleeper cell out in Maltese society now, then its not a matter of if it’s a matter of when. In some apartment somewhere, away from non-violent moslems, there could be a group of hard core committed murderous jihadi’s who are not only planning international Islamic terrorist acts or supporting them, they could very well be plotting and planning to commit terrorist atrocities in Malta (reasons and justifications later).

Prime Minister Gonzi - A North African refugee crisis

Before the War with Libya there was approximately 1.5 million African's on Colonel Gadafi's Libyan border waiting to cross into Europe, with Malta one of the first stepping stones on that journey.

A high proportion of those African's are moslem from places like Somalia or the Sudan.

This figure of 1.5 million does not include the Arab's of North Africa origin who are now also going to be fleeing the violence by heading into Europe.

There is an 'Exodus' on the way that will have long lasting consequences and will threaten the very future life of Nations and Europe as a whole.
