Muslim teacher-terrorist arrested plotting a terror attack in London

A 21-year-old teacher arrested by anti-terror police in London plotting to attack a police officer.

Yesterday it emerged that Mohamed Amoudi was investigated for attempting to travel to Syria to join ISIS, and was held by police in 2015.

Amoudi’s activity on social media expressing radical Muslim views had previously been investigated by police.

He was planning to carry out a terror attack in a crowded tourist area.

He is one of seven Muslim terrorists still being questioned by police, including a knifeman arrested in the heart of Westminster, held after separate operations in London.

The swoops on a 27-year-old Muslim terrorist in Whitehall and locations in north London and Kent were executed to contain ‘threats’ and an ‘active’ terror plot, Scotland Yard said.

Born in Yemen, Amoudi studied at Capital City Academy and was an active member of the university’s Islamic society.

Under the name Abu Umar Al-Hadrami, his Twitter feed, which has now been removed, included derogatory references to non-Muslims as ‘kuffar’ (unbelievers).

Two years ago Amoudi was stopped with two teenagers at Istanbul airport after their parents tipped off detectives. But police later released Amoudi – who has been linked to the controversial human rights group Cage – without charge.

Shortly before he travelled to Turkey, Amoudi attended a talk by cleric Haitham al-Haddad, who is known for making homophobic remarks and supporting the death penalty for people who convert away from Islam.

Amoudi was pictured in the front row of the event, organised by the Cage, listening to the cleric as he said: ‘When the leaders of kuffar are happy with your religion, then know that you’ve deviated from the right path.’

Amoudi, who described himself as a teacher on an internet profile, was a regular worshipper at a small mosque on Willesden High Road.

One terrorist, named as Khalid Mohamed Omar Ali, was arrested for offences under the Terrorism Act and possession of offensive weapons close to Downing Street on Thursday afternoon.

Police recovered several knives during the ‘intelligence-led’ swoop, which took place yards from the scene of last month’s deadly attack by Khalid Masood on Westminster Bridge.

Believed to be a British national born overseas who went to school in Tottenham, north London, Ali reportedly joined a terrorists flotilla to Gaza in 2010.

Following his dramatic arrest in front of crowds of tourists, he was taken for questioning at a south London police station where he remains.

A further six people, including a 16-year-old boy-terrorist, are in custody after they were detained in an unconnected operation that saw a team of specialist firearms officers storm an address in Willesden, north London.

They were all arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of terrorist acts and taken to a south London police station for questioning.

 

UK foils active terror plot as female Muslim terrorist is shot in north London raid

A 20-year-old female Muslim terrorist shot by police as they foiled an ‘active terror plot’ was taken away on a stretcher in her blood-soaked burka yelling: ‘Don’t touch my body’.

The terrorist screamed ‘get off – do not touch me’ as they tried to strip off her clothes and treat her wounds after the raid in Willesden, north London, at 7pm last night.

Dramatic video footage shows the moment elite Met officers smashed through the door, ran up to the first floor flat and then threw in CS canisters before ‘at least six’ shots rang out including two that shattered an upstairs window.

Neighbours heard a woman ‘screaming’ inside before the young terrorist lay on the pavement bleeding from her arm and stomach while still wearing her burka.

The Muslim female – believed to be the first female terrorist in UK history to be shot by police – was rushed to hospital where she remains in a serious but stable condition and is too unwell to be arrested under the terrorism act.

Five Muslims linked to the flat including a 16-year-old boy and a couple, both 28, have been held over alleged terror offences. A woman, 43, was held in Kent.

Metropolitan Police deputy assistant commissioner Neil Basu said today that the raids meant an ‘active’ terror plot had been foiled – but had nothing to with the arrest of a 27-year-old with a ‘rucksack of knives’ grabbed on Whitehall yesterday.

The six arrested in Willesden and Kent had been under observation by counter terrorism officers as part of an ongoing intelligence led operation. Searches at the address and two others in London are continuing today.

Video posted on Twitter showed police wearing balaclavas at a property on Willesden High Road, just over half a mile from Harlesden Road.

A witness tweeted: ‘#womanindoorway held by anti-terrorism police on Willesden high road #Willesdengreen while detective searches her bags #harlesden #willesden’.

This incident is not connected to the arrest in Whitehall earlier the same day, the Met Police said.

The arrests came just hours after heavily armed officers arrested a Muslim terrorist as he crossed Whitehall, just yards from Downing Street and Parliament.

Armed police ‘swarmed like bees’ on the bearded man just before 2.30pm after his concerned family reportedly alerted security services.

While covert teams trailed him on the ground, a live feed was being sent to control rooms in New Scotland Yard and the MI5’s Thames House before they gave the order for them to swoop in.

A large number of armed police then flooded the area as the terrorist was pinned to the ground just yards from Downing Street. He was held against a wall of the Treasury before being taken away in a van to a police station.

The Muslim terrorist has not been named but is 27 years old and thought to be known to police, who kept tabs on him via surveillance cameras on the streets and on the Underground.

All 100 US senators warns UN to stop ‘targeting Israel’

All 100 US senators signed a letter sent to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres Thursday urging him to act against discrimination in against Israel in the United Nations.

The letter, which was obtained by the Washington Post, contained a warning that the UN had better change its habitual discrimination against Israel, reminding Guterres that while the USA remains the main financial contributor to the organization, it is not afraid to act against it.

The letter went on to say that the US expected to see a change in the world forum and its institutions vis-a-vis its treatment of Israel.

“Through words and actions, we urge you to ensure that Israel is treated neither better nor worse than any other UN member in good standing,” the letter said.

The letter reaffirmed the US’s commitment to international leadership and to advancing respect for human rights but unequivocally condemned as what it described as the “continued targeting of Israel by the UN Human Rights Council and other UN entities.”

The senators listed a number of specific agencies in the UN which they said had demonstrated clear bias against Israel.

Pointing to the The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), it the letter acknowledged that it did carried out important work in the field of Holocaust education, but nevertheless highlighted measures that “target Israel and deny the Jewish and Christian connection to Jerusalem,” adding that such actions only serve to undermine the institution’s credibility.

(UNESCO) is set to vote on Tuesday, Israel’s Independence Day, on a resolution that comes out against Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem.

Turning to the United Nations Reliefs and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), the senators told Guterres that body would have to pursue reforms, accusing it of downplaying its “role in perpetuating troubling anti-Israel bias and activities.”

Furthermore, the signatories also delineated the “troubling” ways in which the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) “devotes time to unwarranted attacks against Israel.”

Cataloguing some of the most flagrant human rights violators in the world today, to which it said the UNHRC should be dedicating its attention, the senators once again cited the “imbalanced focus on Israel.”

The letter constitutes another step toward repairing the US’s unflagging support for Israel since President Trump took office in January, and appointed Nikki Haley as his Envoy to the UN.

Israel-US relations were frayed under the Obama administration when the US abstained from a contentious UN Security Council resolution calling for an end to Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria while simultaneously declaring them illegal.

Since taking on her new role however, Haley has managed to earn the trust of many Israel supporters and build a reputation as one of Israel’s staunchest advocates on the international stage through a series of public speeches and declarations admonishing the UN for its bias treatment against the country.

Patriot battery intercepted drone entering Israeli airspace from Syria

The IDF confirmed on Thursday that Israel fired a Patriot anti-ballistic missile at a target in the Golan Heights, Israel’s northern region bordering Syria.

The missile reportedly intercepted a unmanned aerial vehicle that penetrated into Israeli airspace from Syria.

The interception comes hours after Israel allegedly struck a Hezbollah arms depot near Damascus International Airport, which led to condemnation by Russia which called it a “gross violation of Syrian sovereignty.”

Israel has in the past used the Patriot system against suspicious aerial vehicles, most recently in July 2016 when two Patriot missiles were fired at a suspicious drone that crossed into Israeli airspace from Syria. Both missed their target and the unmanned aircraft returned to Syria.

In March Syria warned that scud missiles would be fired towards Israeli targets if Israel carried out any further airstrikes in the war-torn country. Lebanon’s Al-Diyar newspaper Damascus prepared 4 Scuds out of their arsenal of 800 Scud missiles which carry half a ton of explosives, and would launch them without any prior warning if Israel carries out any new strike “as Israel does not announce their raids against Syrian targets.”

The report came following an Israeli strike on a Hezbollah-bound weapons convoy and the firing of a SA-5 missile towards Israeli jets which was intercepted by an Arrow missile.

Israel attacked Iranian arms depot near Damascus airport

The Israel Air Force reportedly attacked an Iranian arms depot near the Damascus International Airport early Thursday morning, according to the Hezbollah-affiliated al-Manar television station.

According to the report, a series of explosions at fuel tanks and warehouses near the airport storing weapons meant for pro-Iranian militias, and mostly Hezbollah.

According to al-Manar, the initial indications were that the blast had caused only material damage and not deaths.

Russian news site Sputnik, meanwhile, reported that Israel attacked five targets at about 3:20am.

Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz told Army Radio on Thursday that the reports of an airstrike targeting Hezbollah-bound weapons in a warehouse in the Damascus airport, matches Israel’s policy of preventing advanced weapons from reaching the terrorist group.

As is the practice, the minister refused to officially confirm or deny the reports that Israel was behind the attack.

Speaking from the United States, where he has been meeting US officials, Katz told the radio station: “I can confirm that the incident in Syria corresponds completely with Israel’s policy to act to prevent Iran’s smuggling of advanced weapons via Syria to Hezbollah in Iran. Naturally, I don’t want to elaborate on this.”

“The prime minister has said that whenever we receive intelligence that indicated an intention to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah, we will act.”

IDF soldiers thwart second terror attack by Muslim Arab cousin-terrorists

Soldiers for the Golani Brigade’s 51st Battalion thwarted a second stabbing terror attack in two days carried by Muslim Arab cousins outside the Samaria Territorial Brigade’s base on Wednesday.

The two cousins from the Balata neighborhood near Shechem ran towards IDF troops stationed in the square outside the base while wielding a knife in the early afternoon of Wednesday and Tuesday.

The soldiers shot and neutralized both terrorists, who were both taken to the Beilinson Hospital at the Rabin Medical Center in Petah Tikva in serious condition.

In both instances, no one was hurt on the Israeli side.

Earlier Wednesday, IDF soldiers arrested a 24-year-old females Muslim Arab terrorist at the Gilbert Junction in Hevron who approached them while brandishing a knife. She confessed in her questioning to planning to carry out a stabbing attack.

US to expel Arab terrorist who lied about her decades-old record of bombings in Israel

A Chicago-based Muslim Arab convicted terrorist with a decades-old record of bombings in Israel pleaded guilty Tuesday to concealing those convictions when she applied for US citizenship.

Rasmea Odeh, 69, will be deported to Jordan or another country in the months ahead.

Supporters traveled to Detroit from Chicago to pack the courtroom, and many were in tears later on the courthouse steps.

Odeh was convicted at trial in 2014 and sentenced to 18 months in prison, but the verdict was overturned. A second trial was planned in Detroit, the city where she went through the citizenship process in 2004, before she decided to accept a plea deal.

But even with the plea agreement, Odeh found it impossible to say the word “guilty” when repeatedly asked by US District Judge Gershwin Drain. He gave up and accepted her reply that she had admitted her crime in the court document.

“I signed this,” Odeh said.

She won’t spend any time in prison and will wait for US immigration officials to tell her when she must leave the country. The deportation won’t happen until after she appears in court in August.

“The United States will never be a safe haven for individuals seeking to distance themselves from their pasts,” said Steve Francis, special agent in charge of Homeland Security investigations in Detroit.

In 1970, Odeh was convicted of two bombings in Israel, including one that killed two young men at a supermarket in Jerusalem. She was sentenced to life in prison but was released in 1979 as part of a prisoner swap with the terror group Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

With family in Michigan, she applied for a US visa in 1994, but didn’t disclose her criminal record. She also didn’t disclose it when she applied for citizenship in 2004. Her record would have disqualified her from entering the US.

77412030100387640360no.jpg

In the plea agreement with prosecutors, Odeh said she made the false statements “intentionally and not as a result of any mistake, post-traumatic stress disorder or any other psychological issue or condition or for any innocent reason.”

Before the guilty plea, a Detroit-area man held a sign outside to honor Leon Kanner and Eddie Joffe, the victims of the 1969 supermarket bombing.

“I’m out here for the families,” Dan Cutler, 65, said.

Iranian ship speeding toward US destroyer

An Iranian ship came within 1,000 yards of a Navy destroyer in the Persian Gulf on Monday, making it the second time this year that Iran has tested the waters with the U.S.

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard “fast attack craft” approached the guided missile destroyer USS Mahan with its weapons manned, according to a report published Tuesday evening.

Mahan turned on the danger signal, fired flares, manned its weapons and changed course to avoid colliding with the Iranian ship.

No warning shots were fired by either party.

About four months ago, an American destroyer was involved in a similar incident in the Strait of Hormuz and fired three warning shots after Iranian ships did not adhere to the warnings and continued to approach them.

“Such high-speed approaches and manning of the firing positions, despite warnings from the destroyer, are clearly provocative behavior,” one of the officials said of the Iranians. The Iranian ship did not fire warning shots.

According to the US military, Iranian ships were involved in 35 incidents of “unprofessional” behavior last year —a 50 percent leap from the previous year.

Spanish police arrest 9 Muslim terrorists over terror attacks in Belgium and France

Spanish police have arrested nine Muslim terrorists in connection with recent deadly terror attacks in Belgium and France.

Police said the arrested were one Spaniard and eight Moroccans living in Catalonia, all aged between 30 and 40 years old.

A regional police spokeswoman said at least four of the detained are suspected of being linked to Muslim terrorists arrested following the 2016 Brussels airport and subway attacks that killed 32 people and wounded 300 others.

Regional police spokesman Josep Lluis Trapero told TV3 regional television that four of the detained were clearly members of the ISIS terror group.

He said the arrests could help solve investigations into terror attacks in France and Belgium.

Trapero said the group was also being investigated for drug trafficking and other crimes.

A police statement said police made 12 raids in five Catalan towns including the regional capital, Barcelona. It said the arrests followed an eight-month investigation in coordination with Belgian police.

Spanish police have arrested some 200 jihadis since Spain raised its national security alert to one step below the maximum in 2015.
