That's what your open borders bring, move some more wackos from Syria into the EU
And to think that the Obama/Hillary Democrat Machine wants to infiltrate the entire US with these maniacal Islamists.

Let's wait and see who is responsible before jumping to unfounded conclusions

This could very well have been done by the Buddhists ;)

Seriously though, the suicidal impulse of western society is stunning. Termites eat wood and shouldn't be allowed to live in our house yet if you say that out loud you are termitephobic

Trump Blasts Muslims After Brussels Attack: "We Cannot Let These People Into Our Country"


Submitted by Tyler Durden on 03/22/2016 08:11 -0400


At the risk of being crass, we've said on several occasions that the Paris attacks, the San Bernardino massacre, and the wave of sexual assaults that have swept Western Europe are the best things that ever happened to Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

It seems exceedingly likely that Trump had very little conception of what was going on in the Balkans when he stormed onto the political scene last summer with inflammatory comments about Mexican immigrants. As luck would have it, just two months later, Europe's migrant crisis reached a critical tipping point when Hungarian PM Viktor Orban built a 100-mile razor wire fence in an effort to seal his country's border with Serbia. Suddenly, Trump wasn't the only one building walls.

Europe's worst nightmares came true in November when gunmen and suicide bombers killed 130 people in Paris and although the connection with Syrian refugees was tenuous, the tragedy nevertheless served to validate anti-immigration rhetoric. The San Bernardino massacre less than a month later tied it all together for Trump. Muslims. Immigration. Murder. America. It was all there.

Subsequently, Trump would blast Angela Merkel's open-door migrant policy and before you knew it, he was being endorsed by the likes of far-right, anti-immigration Dutch politician Geert Wilders and France's Jean Marie Le-Pen.

In January, Trump called Brussels a "hellhole."

On Tuesday morning, three explosions ripped through that "hellhole," killing at least two dozen and injuring many more in an attack that's likely tied to last week's capture of Paris fugitive Salah Abdeslam in the Muslim enclave of Molenbeek.

Needless to say, the media jumped at the opportunity to get Trump's take and Fox was first up with the GOP frontrunner's initial reaction this morning. Here's what Trump said:



"Do you all remember how beautiful and safe a place Brussels was? Not anymore!"



"I would close up our borders."



"[Muslims] have to be more open with the police. They have to let people know when they see people making bombs on the first floor of an apartment."



"This is just the beginning. It will get worse and worse. It's out of control."



"We cannot allow these people to come into our country. They're not assimilating into society. There's something different going on."



"Muslims have to be checked very, very carefully. Muslims aren't assimilating easily into other countries. There's something wrong."



"It's probably going to happen here."

Do you all remember how beautiful and safe a place Brussels was. Not anymore, it is from a different world! U.S. must be vigilant and smart!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 22, 2016

I'm not gonna feel safe until the DHS has an APC on every street corner in Amerika and the DHS is allowed to conduct daily home and vehicle searches.

I'm positive our government will want to stop the spread of terrorism so they won't have to implement the above and further restrict our freedoms and liberties.

I didn't see the first terror attack, this one is the second in Brussels? Either I just missed it, can't keep track of them all now or they're calling that thing where they captured that one terrorist a "terrorist attack"

IDK, but if that's so, where is this going to end. Is the kid down the street stealing a piece of gum going to be considered a terrorist attack?

I think it's reasonable to think that nail bombs that kill 30+ and injure 100+ aren't really comparable to a kid stealing gum

I just didn't see this coming.
Interestingly, Trump predicted it a month ago, describing how the rapefugees have made Brussels a "hell-hole" and there would soon be big trouble there.

Oh, hell, while I's attit: Hillary just gave a speech on this attack. Never mentioned islam or terrorists.

While studying transportation a few years back, I stumbled upon a very pertinent security aspect of mass transit:

The higher the volume of people packed into a bus, train, or plane, the higher the security risk.

Small density transportation like cars have an extremely LOW security risk level for bombing attacks.

Now we can add proximity to Muslim populations when we factor in risk.

That's already been taken care of. It's call smart streetlamps, smart meters, smart phone, smart TV, smart appliances, smart cars.

See how fucking smart we've become?

And the yellow streak shows true ...

OTTAWA -- The Liberal government says Canada is not at war with Islamic militants -- a view not shared by ally France.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion are rejecting the "at war" label just one day after the bombings in Brussels that killed more than 30 people and injured 270.

After the attacks, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Europe was "at war."

The bombings in Brussels came four months after the attacks in Paris that left 130 dead.

The militant group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant has claimed responsibility for both incidents.

Trudeau, who made his comments during a CBC Radio interview, and Dion -- speaking in the House of Commons foyer today -- both say the conflict with ISIL does not fit the true definition of war.

Former Israeli Intel Operatives Run Security at Brussels Airport

Sott.net
Wed, 23 Mar 2016 14:18 UTC



These 'jihadis' are going to have to try harder to terrify the people into accepting racism, fascism and a police state.
The aviation and general security services firm ICTS handles security operations at Brussels airport, the scene of a bomb attack yesterday morning.

ICTS was established in 1982 by former members of Shin Bet, Israel's internal security agency and El Al airline security agents, and has a major presence around the world in airport security including operations in the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Japan and Russia. ICTS uses the security system employed in Israel, whereby passengers are profiled to assess the degree to which they pose a potential threat on the basis of a number of indicators, including age, name, origin and behavior during questioning.

Chairman of the Supervisory Board at ICTS is Menachem J. Atzmon. Atzmon is a former Likud party member who was indicted and convicted in 1996 in a fraud and embezzlement case relating to the misappropriation of funds raised by charities. Atzmon is also the CEO of the port authority of Rostock in Germany.

This will not, however, be the first time that ICTS has come under scrutiny for possible security lapses leading to a 'Muslim terror attack'.



The young knicker bomber. Groomed, sheep-dipped and expended, to bring 'terror' to your doorstep.
As the provider of security services to Amsterdam's Schiphol airport and United Airlines and US Airways, the firm's security system was criticized for somehow allowing erstwhile 'underwear bomber', Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, to "slip through" and board Northwest Airlines Flight 253 to Detroit with explosive materials on Christmas day 2009.

The Christmas knicker bomber, as he came to be known, was not your usual disgruntled Arab or lowly Muslim acolyte. He was the son of Nigerian banking mogul and former Nigerian government minister Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, one of the richest men in Africa. We're talking one of the African colonial elite here, an African version of the British 'old boy's network' While in London, his son, the knicker bomber lived in a ₤4 million apartment in Mansfield Street, in the city's West End. He also enjoyed access to visas for several different countries, including the US.

Unlike most alleged Muslim terrorists who usually bring their passports to the scene of their 'suicide attacks' (and often leave them there for police to find) Abdulmutallab apparently arrived at Schipol airport to board his flight to the US with a one way ticket, no luggage and without a passport.

Now usually this would have spelled a premature end to his planned attack, but according to Detroit attorney and eyewitness to events at Schipol,


Detroit attorney Kurt Haskell and his wife Lori

Kurt Haskell, Abdulmutallab benefited from the help of a sharply dressed Indian man who was able to escort the youngster to the boarding gate where he told the attendant that Abdulmutallab had no passport but should be allowed on the flight anyway. When the sharply dressed man was told that he would have to speak to the security manager, he did so and successfully planted the knicker bomber on the plane.

Now this requires some serious string pulling, and all the hoopla in the press at the time about whether or not the security system worked was just hubris, because if the knicker bomber appeared at the gate without a passport, it is unlikely that he went through the normal process up to that point, including check-in which requires passengers to show their passports.

In all probability, Abdulmutallab was escorted as a 'VIP' to the gate by the sharply dressed man. So how do two suspicious looking dudes, at least one of them without a passport and carrying bomb materials, get to the gate in an airport and then onto the flight? The answer is they don't, unless they have some friends among the people running the security controls at the airport. In this case, ICTS.

Within a few months of the underwear attack, the US State Department admitted that it had known about Mutallab's intentions for some time and had not revoked his entry visa to the USA because they, effectively, wanted to see what he would do. "Revocation action would've disclosed what they were doing," Kennedy said in testimony before the House Committee on Homeland Security. Allowing Adbulmutallab to keep the visa increased chances federal investigators would be able to get closer to apprehending the terror network he is accused of working with, "rather than simply knocking out one soldier in that effort."



Richard Reid, hapless dupe.
But ICTS' security faux pas' don't end there. In December 2001, they somehow managed to let deranged shoe bomber Richard Reid, onto his Miami-bound flight in Paris, and this was after ICTS had cleared Reid through security at Amsterdam airport on a flight to Tel Aviv in July 2001 for what was apparently an all-expenses paid week-long trip to the Israeli city. What precisely he did there remains a mystery. Reid later said that ICTS/El Al had failed to detect that he had explosives in his shoes on the flight to Tel Aviv, an amazing revelation considering the Israeli airline's tight security and the fact that, six months later, they were responsible for letting him board the Miami-bound flight with the very same type of 'shoe bomb'. Israel had not informed British, American, or any other security agency of their concerns about Reid. Reid's aunt, Claudette Lewis who raised Reid in south London, was quoted as saying she believed her nephew had been "brainwashed".

ICTS also somehow missed several of the alleged 9/11 hijackers who allegedly flew out of Boston's Logan airport on September 11th 2001. ICTS also handled security for London's bus network during the July 7, 2005, 'suicide' bomb attacks. In fact, two of its subsidiaries, ICTS UK and ICTS Europe Systems, are based at Tavistock House, Tavistock Square in London, scene of the London Stagecoach bus bombing that day.

That's quite a record, all in all. And we have to wonder how many terror attacks could have been prevented, how many innocent lives saved, how much further we might be today from a burgeoning police state, if outfits like ICTS and those that support them had not allowed so many unlikely and hapless 'Muslim terrorists' to "slip through".

Of all the authoritarian 'leaders' that benefit from the insecurity created by 'Muslim terrorism', the political elite of the state of Israel benefit the most. And of all the people who suffer from terrorist attacks, people of Muslim faith suffer by far the most. Israel, a country created on stolen Palestinian land and surrounded by Muslims, requires the continued threat of 'Islamic terrorism' to justify its existence. In pushing this insane agenda so far, by encouraging Europe and the 'West' to adopt Israeli attitudes towards Palestinians, it seems that the conditions are being created whereby the events of Nazi Germany may well repeat, only this time with Muslims in the position of the Jews.

7 Strange Questions About The Brussels Terror Attacks That The Mainstream Media Is Not Asking


Submitted by Tyler Durden on 03/23/2016 20:40 -0400


Submitted by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

The horrific terror attacks in Brussels, Belgium on March 22, 2016 are going to reverberate in our memories for years to come, and perhaps that was the intention. Terror attacks are designed to create fear and to get attention, and these attacks have definitely done both. On Tuesday morning, two huge explosions ripped through Zaventem Airport in Brussels as travelers were getting ready to board their morning flights. You can view some raw footage of one of the bomb blasts right here. Just a short while later, another huge explosion was reported at a metro station just yards away from the European Commission headquarters. At this point, CNN says that at least 30 people have died and about 230 people are wounded as a result of these bombings. But what was the real motive for these attacks? The following are 7 strange questions about the Brussels terror attacks that the mainstream media is not asking…

#1 Why would Brussels be such a prime target for terror attacks?

Most Americans don’t understand how important the city of Brussels is. For one thing, it is the headquarters of the NATO alliance, and defense ministers from 49 different nations met there last month to discuss a potential ground invasion of Syria.

Secondly, it is also the unofficial capital of the European Union. The following comes from Wikipedia



“The European Union has no official capital, and no plans to declare one, but Brussels hosts the official seats of the European Commission, Council of the European Union, and European Council, as well as a seat (officially the second seat but de facto the most important one) of the European Parliament.”

Over the years Brussels has become a key symbol for European integration, so if you wanted to conduct an attack that the entire European Union would feel, Brussels would be a good choice. And many European leaders are already coming out and declaring that the attack on Brussels was an attack on Europe as a whole



French President Francois Hollande said Tuesday’s attacks in Brussels that killed at least 26 people struck at “the whole of Europe”.



“Through the attacks in Brussels, the whole of Europe has been hit,” Hollande said in a statement, urging the continent to take “vital steps in the face of the seriousness of the threat”.



French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said: “We are at war. Over the past few months in Europe, we have endured several acts of war.”

#2 Was Donald Trump right about Brussels?

During an interview with Fox Business Network anchor Maria Bartiromo earlier this year, Donald Trump specifically pointed to Brussels as an example of what he wanted to avoid in this country…



The Republican presidential front-runner said Brussels, the capital of Belgium, had been particularly transformed. Belgium has been home to a number of recent terror plots, and was linked to the November attack on Paris, France, that left 130 people dead.



You go to Brussels — I was in Brussels a long time ago, 20 years ago, so beautiful, everything is so beautiful — it’s like living in a hellhole right now,” Trump continued. “You go to these different places. There is something going on.”

#3 Why are there some Islamic ghettos in Brussels that are considered to be “off-limits” for non-Muslims?

Of course this is not just true in Brussels. All over Europe there are sections of major cities that have been completely and totally taken over by radical Muslims. In Belgium, the rapid growth of the Islamic community has some politicians dreaming of turning that nation into a Sharia-compliant country within just a couple of decades. The following comes from Infowars



These ghettos, which are in fact large areas of Brussels, are considered off-limits to Europeans and radical Muslims will likely comprise the majority of the population within 20 years.



“I think we have to sensitize people, make them understand the advantages to having Islamic people and Islamic laws, and then it will be completely natural to have Islamic laws and we will become an Islamic state,” a Muslim politician from Brussels, Redouane Ahrouch, said to a reporter in 2012. “In Belgium, of course!”



“I am for the Sharia. Islamic law, I am for it. It is a long-term struggle that will take decades or a century, but the movement has been launched.”

#4 Does 3/22 have special occult significance?

There are some people out there that are suggesting that it was no accident that these attacks happened on 3/22. And without a doubt, we have seen other events of this nature fall on dates that have special significance for the occult. I do not know exactly what to make of all of this, but we do know that 322 is extremely significant to the Skull and Bones Society at Yale University (of which George W. Bush and John Kerry are members)…



#5 Why did Barack Obama spend less than a minute talking about the terror attacks in Brussels during his speech down in Cuba?

You would think that something this historic would deserve more than 51 seconds, but this is precisely the kind of behavior that we have come to expect from Obama over the years.

#6 Is it odd that the mainstream media so quickly reported that ISIS took full responsibility for these attacks?

It is entirely possible that ISIS was behind these attacks. But it is also entirely possible that these attacks are being blamed on ISIS by other parties with ulterior motives.

What we do know is that a “bulletin” supposedly from the Islamic State was posted on Tuesday which took full responsibility for the bombings. The following comes from WND



“Islamic State fighters carried out a series of bombings with explosive belts and devices on Tuesday, targeting an airport and a central metro station in the center of the Belgian capital, Brussels, a country participating in the coalition against the Islamic State,” the bulletin said. “Islamic State fighters opened fire inside the Zaventem airport, before several of them detonated their explosive belts, as a martyrdom bomber detonated his explosive belt in the Maelbeek metro station.”

#7 Will the terror attacks in Brussels be used to justify a ground invasion of Syria?

These attacks have produced a tremendous amount of outrage in the western world, and already many prominent voices are calling for a U.S.-led invasion of Syria in order to finally put a permanent end to ISIS.

In fact, a former top adviser to Hillary Clinton started calling for a Syrian invasion within just hours of the attacks



A former adviser to Hillary Clinton on Syria, Frederic C. Hof, now a Resident Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East, has called for invading Syria in the wake of the deadly attacks in Brussels.



For the better part of a year, one clear recommendation has been on the table: assemble an American-led, coalition-of-the-willing, professional ground component—one top-heavy in regional and European forces—to enter eastern Syria to close with and kill ISIS. Engaging the Syrian opposition at all levels, consistent with an executable civil-military stabilization plan, can produce an administrative structure for an ISIS-free eastern Syria. Killing ISIS in Syria can ease the migration crisis and hasten the demise of this murderous band in Iraq.



And it can demonstrate to the credulously stupid that linking up with losers will be a one-way trip to self-destruction,” Hof writes.

Last month, I received quite a bit of criticism for suggesting that we could be on the verge of World War 3. But the truth is that Saudi Arabia and Turkey remain absolutely committed to the removal of the Assad regime, and now these Brussels terror attacks have conveniently shifted sentiment in Europe and in the United States in favor of a ground operation in Syria.

The current ceasefire in Syria is on the verge of completely falling apart, and if an American-led coalition does invade, that could very easily spark a major regional war. The Russians, the Iranians and Hezbollah are not just going to sit back and watch as the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Turkey and their allies march to Damascus and remove Assad.

I keep trying to warn people that 2016 is the year when everything changes, and I have a feeling that these terror attacks in Belgium are going to turn out to be exceedingly significant.

Our world is becoming more unstable with each passing day, and sometimes all it takes is a little shove to set us on a path that we never intended to go down.

I don’t have all the answers, but unlike the mainstream media, at least I am not afraid to ask the hard questions…

Brussels Suicide Bombers Planted Hidden Camera At Home Of Top Belgium Nuclear Official


Submitted by Tyler Durden on 03/24/2016 07:30 -0400


As the chaos surrounding the coordinated suicide attacks on Belgium unfolded on Tuesday morning, we reported that energy utility Electrabel was evacuating two nuclear power plants, Doel, made up of four reactors, and Tihange, comprised of three.

Electrabel would later dispute that account, drawing a distinction between a full evacuation and the utility’s generous offer to non-essential employees: “...people who are not strictly necessary on site can leave.”

Yay, a day off. It’s kind of like when you’re a kid and you get sent home from school early because it’s snowing. Only with terrorists. And three dozen casualties.

But the presence of military personnel belied Electrabel’s attempts to play down the incident.

The stepped up police and army presence certainly seemed to suggest that the threat to Belgium’s crumbling nuclear infrastructure was very real indeed. We say “stepped up” because there were already 140 soldiers at the Tihange and Doel sites, which host 40-year old reactors that The Guardian notes have “been plagued by a litany of problems such as pressure vessel micro-cracks, fire and one mysterious case of sabotage.”



(Tihange)

Although nearly two thirds of Belgium’s electricity comes from the sites’ seven reactors, activists want at least two reactors shuttered on safety concerns. Those concerns - stemming from the discovery of “thousands” of micro-cracks - were amplified last month when Belgium’s federal prosecutor confirmed that on November 30, police seized footage that appeared to show a high-ranking Belgian nuclear official in an anti-terror raid. The surveillance video was discovered in a bust that resulted in the arrest of Mohamed Bakkali, who was charged with terrorist activity and murder in connection with the Paris attacks. His home in Auvelais may have been used as a hideout.

Unconfirmed reports out this week suggest that Bakkali was mentioned in the will of Ibrahim el-Bakraoui, which was found on a discarded computer discovered in a trash bin following Tuesday’s attacks.

Bakraoui blew himself up outside of a Starbucks in the Brussels airport. His brother, Khalid, carried out an attack on the city’s metro just a little over an hour later.



The connections between Tuesday’s attacks and the assault on Paris are now becoming clear and as we and others have documented extensively, this all appears to stem from the cell organized and run by Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the Paris "masetermind" who allegedly became Emir of War in Deir ez-Zor after Omar the Chechen (al-Shishani) was transferred to Iraq. Indeed, the cell may be connected to the January 2015 raid in Verviers that killed two of Abaaoud’s compatriots.

On Thursday, we get still more chilling evidence to suggest that this is all the work of the very same Belgium-based terror cell. According to Dernier Heure, it was the Bakraoui brothers that planted a hidden camera in the bushes and captured the 10-minute surveillance video of the senior Belgian nuclear official coming and going from his home. Here’s DH (Google translated):



Beheading a part of the cell at the Forest of operation and the arrest of Salah and his accomplice Abdeslam Choukri in Molenbeek, investigators may have averted the worst. By striking this blow, the authorities forced the cell to the origin of the attacks Brussels to accelerate its action and turn away from its first targets. Including the Belgian nuclear system.



According to information from the DH , the two people who have recovered the hidden camera in front of the home of the director of the research program and Belgian nuclear development were none other than Ibrahim and Khalid El Bakraoui brothers.



The video had been recovered by the two men shortly after the attacks in Paris, showing the full extent of the connections between France, Belgium and Syria.

It’s worth noting that DH has been wrong before (just yesterday for instance, the online paper claimed bomb maker Najim Laachraoui had been arrested when in fact he hadn’t and may actually be strewn around the Brussels airport in pieces). But if true, it underscores just how serious the threat to Belgium (and Europe) truly is.

Although officials will generally tell you that in the event an “amateur” dirty bomb were detonated, more people would likely be killed by the TNT than the radiation, the idea of a terrorist cell using radioactive material against the civilian population isn’t exactly something anyone wants to think about. Indeed, Belgian lawmakers were beside themselves when they learned of the footage last month.

“Your services possessed this videotape since Nov. 30, and the nuclear control agency was informed immediately,” said Jean-Marc Nollet, a Parliament member from Ecolo, told interior minister, Jan Jambon. “So I don’t understand how you could have been in possession of this video since Nov. 30, but on Jan. 13, when I questioned you on this, you answered, ‘There is no specific threat to the nuclear facilities.’

“I agree we shouldn’t give in to panic, but between giving in to panic and denying the magnitude of the risks, there is a big difference,” Nollet continued.

“Concrete indications that showed that the terrorists involved in the Paris attacks had the intention to do something involving one of our four nuclear sites.” Sébastien Berg, a spokesman for Belgium’s Federal Agency for Nuclear Control said.

“If they find a way to spread such material among the population, they could do a lot of damage," he added.
