Chapo “The Fight is on” ISIS!

Chapo “The Fight is on” ISIS!

Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzman has a lot of enemies: the Mexican government, the Drug Enforcement Administration, Donald Trump.

But now the world’s most powerful drug trafficker is taking one what is arguably the world’s most feared organization, ISIS.

Chapo’s anger toward the radical jihadist group does not stem from some sense of altruism for the victims of the recent attacks in Paris or San Bernardino, but instead from concerns about his bottom line after ISIS destroyed several of his Sinaloa Cartel’s drug shipments moving through the Middle East.

In a harshly worded email to ISIS, which was leaked by the website Cartel Blog, Guzmán sent a stark warning to ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi about messing with the cartel’s business.

“You [ISIS] are not soldiers,” Guzmán purportedly wrote. “You are nothing but lowly p**. Your god cannot save you from the true terror that my men will levy at you if you continue to impact my operation.”

Guzmán added: “My men will destroy you. The world is not yours to dictate. I pity the next son of a whore that tries to interfere with the business of the Sinaloa Cartel. I will have their heart and tongue torn from them. It looks like it’s on.”

The Sinaloa Cartel is considered the world’s largest drug trafficking organization, with operations running throughout the Americas, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia. In the Middle East, the cartel has become a major provider of cocaine, ecstasy and other so-called party drugs to oil-rich princes and businessmen throughout the region.

Islamic State fighters, however, abhor the use of drugs and have systemically been destroying any cartel shipments they get their hands on.

While the group is prolific on social media and in their video output, ISIS has so far not responded to the threats from Guzmán.

In his letter, Guzmán also hints that if he succeeds in destroying the terrorist group then he should be given immunity from prosecution. Guzmán made a highly-publicized escape earlier this year from a maximum security prison in Mexico, where he was awaiting trial on drug trafficking charges.

“It would be ironic that the group who ends up taking out ISIS is El Chapo’s drug cartel!” Guzmán reportedly wrote. “They seem up to the task and it could be worth giving immunity to this guy in exchange for him and his boys taking out ISIS once and for all!

What cease fire, The Hamas have already broken it!

What cease fire, The Hamas have already broken it!

Israel stopped , Yet the Hamas launched attacks after truce

Israel stop the fire ordered by the truce with Hamas, however there are reports that rockets were fired at the Jewish state

JERUSALEM,  Israel ordered its army to stop the fire towards the Gaza Strip in regards to the truce with the Hamas, however there are reports that several rockets were fired at the Jewish state after the agreement came into force .

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF), through its representative Yoav Mordechai, confirmed tonight that were ordered to cease fire and act except to respond to provocations from the Palestinian territory. “We are waiting,” said the representative.

“We will be inactive if no fire on civilians or our troops, but if any answer,” he said Mordechai, who after praising the military operation against armed Palestinian groups, held that this evidence of deterrence will be measured in the coming hours.

However, the fragility of the truce mediated by Egypt and announced was evident tonight, because in the space of an hour, after the entry into force of the ceasefire, was reported rocket fire from Gaza.

Israeli police said at least 12 rockets were fired into the Jewish state, and although he did not mention the site or were intercepted, said caused no damage or casualties, according to reports in local newspaper The Jerusalem Post .

The possibility of a truce to end the armed conflict between Israel and the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), was announced the day before, but still did not respond Tel Aviv and accepted the ceasefire until Wednesday.

In a press conference with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in Cairo, the Foreign Minister of Egypt, Mohamed Kamel Amr, announced this afternoon and said the truce would take effect at 09:00 am local (19:00 GMT).

Hamas leader, Khaled Mashaal, said the “victory” of the Islamist group on Israel and said the Jewish state had “failed in his quest” to launch attacks on Gaza, as Palestinians had accepted the terms.

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip also reacted with joy to the announcement of the truce and took to the streets of the country to celebrate the “victory of Hamas” while similar celebrations took place in several West Bank towns.

Many Palestinians fired in the air, others kissed the ground, some drivers honking their cars and women wailed, while a more distributed sweets and kisses in jubilation by the cease-fire, which threatened to flare up.

Iran’s Fordo uranium enrichment plant was now “complete”!

Iran is set to sharply expand its uranium enrichment in an underground site after installing all the centrifuges it was built for,

IRAN is Ready! Iran’s Fordo uranium enrichment plant is now “complete”.

The UN’s nuclear watchdog also said that Iran’s stockpile of its most sensitive nuclear material, which could relatively quickly be used to make atomic arms, had grown and is getting closer to an amount that could be sufficient for a bomb.

The IAEA said on Friday that the installation of equipment at Iran’s Fordo uranium enrichment plant was now “complete”.

The agency report reiterated its regular statement that it was “unable … to conclude that all nuclear material in Iran is in peaceful activities”.

It also said that activities spotted by satellite at the Parchin military base, where the IAEA says it has evidence of possible past nuclear weapons research work, meant that any verification there would be “seriously undermined”.

Iran denies working, or ever having worked, on a nuclear weapon and says all its atomic activities are peaceful.

Weapons-grade uranium

If Iran uses the new machinery at Fordo to enrich uranium to purities of 20 per cent, technically not far from the level needed for a bomb, production could increase from 15 kilos per month now to about 45 kilos, a source familiar with the matter said.

Experts say that about 250 kilos of 20-per cent uranium is needed to convert into enough 90-per cent material for one nuclear weapon.

Deciding to “break out” and enrich to this level would however quickly be detected by the IAEA.

Making a bomb also requires a whole range of other activities.

“Iran remains years, not months away from having a workable nuclear arsenal if it were to choose to pursue that capability,” analyst Daryl Kimball of the Arms Control Association said.

John Large, a nuclear analyst, told Al Jazeera that the IAEA report comes at a very sensitive time.

“What is interesting is that the IAEA actually published this report now, when the geo-political situation is so sensitive. It is not experts like me or Western politicians that we should be concerned about, but Israel’s interpretation of the Iranian moves that is the real problem here.

“The Israelis may well see the advancement of missile technology that now the Gaza Strip is firing at them…  the ones that reached Tel Aviv have been made in Iran and they could use that as a political excuse (to attack Iran).”

‘Ready for feeding’

Since its last report in August, Iran has installed about 640 new centrifuges – machines that enrich uranium gas by spinning it at supersonic speeds – at Fordo, and a further 700 are “ready for feeding”, the IAEA report said.

No new centrifuges were put into operation since the last report, however, it said.

The report also indicated that Iran had converted about 40 per cent of its around 230 kilos of 20-per cent uranium into a form for use in a research reactor, making it much harder to convert for use in a weapon.

Many in the international community worry that by the time Fordo is fully up and running, Iran will be producing far more 20-per cent-enriched uranium than Iran’s civilian nuclear activities can conceivably need.

Iran “appears to be calibrating the progress so as not to make huge advances at once that could spark a crisis,” Mark Fitzpatrick from the International Institute for Strategic Studies think-tank in London told the AFP news agency.

“The situation might be likened to the frog in the hot pot, with the temperature being turned up only slowly,” he said.
Sanctions
Because of worries about Iran’s aims, the UN Security Council has passed six resolutions calling on Tehran to suspend all enrichment, including to lower levels, passing four rounds of sanctions.

Western nations have imposed additional sanctions that this year have begun to hit the Iranian economy hard.

Israel, the Middle East’s sole, if undeclared, nuclear-weapons state, has refused to rule out military action to stop Iran also getting the bomb. Fordo is dug into a mountainside and therefore difficult to bomb.

A nuclear bomb needs more than uranium, and exactly a year ago the IAEA released a major report setting out a large body of what it called “overall, credible” evidence suggesting activity in other areas – at least until 2003 and possibly since – including at Parchin.

Twelve months on, and despite a string of fruitless meetings in Vienna and Tehran, Iran continues to reject the findings in that report, dismissing them as forgeries provided by foreign intelligence services.

In September, the head of Iran’s atomic agency, in a speech at the IAEA’s annual meeting of all member states, accused the UN body of being infiltrated by saboteurs and “terrorists”.

A senior figure familiar with the situation said on Friday that as a result of Fereydoon Abbasi Davani’s comments, IAEA inspectors in Iran were working under an “atmosphere of intimidation”.

IAEA head Yukiya Amano expressed guarded optimism on Sunday that the next meeting, set for December 13 in the Iranian capital, would be more productive.

Obama no ally of Israel, rebuffs Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Is this your American President speaking? May God have mercy on the United States of America for “The Face of Evil” is among you!

US President Barack Obama said during a televised interview that aired this weekend that he will block out “any noise” from Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urging America to intervene in an Iranian nuclear program.

Speaking to 60 Minutes, President Obama acknowledged that the United States does indeed maintain friendly relations with Israel, but suggested that he would not necessarily intervene in that country’s issues if it wasn’t the best course of action for the American people. The interview was conducted by Steve Kroft and carried by CBS Sunday evening.

Responding to a question about how much pressure the United States receives from Prime Minister Netanyahu to use military force in Iran to thwart a rumored nuclear warhead procurement plan, President Obama said he understands Israel’s concerns but does not feel pressured to play by their rules.

“I have conversations with Prime Minister Netanyahu all the time. And I understand and share Prime Minister Netanyahu’s insistence that Iran should not obtain a nuclear weapon, because it would threaten us, it would threaten Israel, and it would threaten the world and kick off a nuclear arms race,” President Obama explained.

In response to his answer, Mr. Kraft followed through and asked the president, “You’re saying, you don’t feel any pressure from Prime Minister Netanyahu in the middle of a campaign to try and get you to change your policy and draw a line in the sand? “You don’t feel any pressure?”

“When it comes to our national security decisions — any pressure that I feel is simply to do what’s right for the American people. And I am going to block out—any noise that’s out there,” President Obama said. “Now I feel an obligation, not pressure but obligation, to make sure that we’re in close consultation with the Israelis — on these issues. Because it affects them deeply. They’re one of our closest allies in the region. And we’ve got an Iranian regime that has said horrible things that directly threaten Israel’s existence.”

Despite the long-lasting relationship between the US and Israel, the two allies have failed to see eye-to-eye as of late on the Iranian issue, at least as far as to what degree intervention is warranted. The United States has already imposed serious trade sanctions on Iran and is far from on pleasant terms with them otherwise, but Prime Minister Netanyahu and other Israeli officials have asked for President Obama to take more serious action, perhaps even putting boots on the ground.

“The world tells Israel ‘wait, there’s still time’. And I say, ‘Wait for what? Wait until when?’” Netanyahu said earlier this month. “Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don’t have a moral right to place a red light before Israel.” Days after that remark was made, Israel asked the White House if a meeting could be arranged between the two nation’s leaders during Mr. Netanyahu’s visit to the United Nations in New York City this week, but the Obama administration said such a sit-down wouldn’t be possible.

Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor that will challenge President Obama in the November elections, told 60 Minute’s that the White House’s response was a “mistake that sends a message throughout the Middle East that somehow we distance ourselves from our friends.”

Al Qaeda Call “war of the crusades” to murder U.S. ambassadors

The terrorist network urges Muslims to continue their protests for release of U.S. hegemony

The arm of Al Qaeda in Yemen urged Muslims on Saturday to intensify their protests and murder U.S. diplomats in the Middle East for a film that denigrated the Prophet Muhammad, which he said represents another chapter in the “war of the crusades” against Islam.

The outrage generated by the film, which was produced in California, swept the Muslim world after Friday prayers, and groups of protesters attacked the U.S. embassies in the region.

On Tuesday September 11 attack U.S. consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other U.S. officials amid violence.

“Whoever is an ambassador or envoy of the United States should follow the example of the descendants (Libyans) of Omar al-Mukhtar, who killed the U.S. ambassador,” said the Yemeni arm of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

“Let the embassies action is a step towards the liberation of Muslim countries of U.S. hegemony,” he said in the statement posted on a website.

At least 17 people have died since the outbreak of violence in the region on Tuesday, prompting Washington to send troops to strengthen security in their missions.

Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP, for its acronym Torit), mostly militants in Yemen and Saudi Arabia, is considered by the U.S. as the most dangerous branch of the network founded by Osama bin Laden.

“The film released in the United States who insults our prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, comes as part of the ongoing war of crusades against Islam,” the AQAP statement, referring to the European wars in the Middle East a thousand years ago.

“The incident is so huge that nacióndeberían resources focus on U.S. embassies expel Unidosde Muslim lands,” he said.

AQAP has used Yemen, a U.S. regional ally, as a base to plan attacks in the North American country.

Washington has backed the Yemeni army campaign this year shifted to Al Qaeda and its allies in South subastión.

Iran in war exercise Makes threat on the International Community!

Iran has detailed plans to destroy with its missiles 35 U.S. Air Force bases in the Middle East, the Persian Gulf and Central Asia if attacked, said Gen. Amir Ali Hayizadeh, Aerospace Force Commander of the IRGC.

“We have taken steps to attack those bases and deploy missiles to destroy all in the first minutes of an attack (enemy Iran),” he said today in comments broadcast Hayizadeh local agency Fars.

Hayizadeh was speaking, in which he expressed Iran’s plans for an eventual U.S. attack against its territory, following a three-day maneuvers in which the IRGC have tried various types of domestically manufactured missiles.

The special command of the military defense of the Iranian Islamic revolution, said the United States “has 35 bases around Iran,” adding that “all are within reach of our missiles, as well as the land occupied Palestine (Israel).”

He said the missile maneuvers were aimed at today ending and destroy the hypothetical replica of U.S. bases in the region and said it had been a success. For its part, the website of the Guardians of the Revolution, Sepah News , reported today that, in the maneuvers, they had fired missiles such as “Persian Gulf” against anti-ship marine white, with the support of fighter aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles.

Yesterday, the guardians of the Revolution said that they had destroyed seven hypothetical bases of “forces outside the region” in aerial maneuvers and missiles with a range of up to one thousand 300 kilometers. ground-ground missiles fired during maneuvers of the Revolutionary Guards were of different types and 300, 500, 800 and 300 thousand km range, although the overall Hayizadeh insisted that the country has missiles in excess of 2, 000 kilometers, according to local agency Mehr.

 Iranian authorities have reiterated that the territory of Israel and vessels and U.S. bases in areas of the Middle East, the Persian Gulf and Central Asia are within reach of its missiles and can attack those targets if they suffer an attack.

Iran is under UN sanctions, and U.S. and EU, for its nuclear program and Washington and Tel Avil have threatened to attack if not stop Iranian nuclear activities, to which Tehran has said that, in that case, give a response “overwhelming” and could close the strategic Strait of Hormuz.

While some countries, the United States at the head, suspect Iran’s nuclear program has a spring arms designed to make nuclear weapons, Tehran says is purely civilian and peaceful, according to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Yesterday in his weekly press conference, the spokesman of Foreign Ministry, Ramin Mehmanparast said these maneuvers and the message of the exercises is that “Iran has full authority and the preparation necessary to establish security in the Persian Gulf and oil traffic in the Strait of Hormuz.

President of the Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy of Iran’s parliament, Alaedin Boroujerdi said Tehran considers the presence of foreign forces in the “detrimental” to the safety and added that the missile maneuvers demonstrate the ability of Iran to maintain stability in the area.

imminent surrender of the murderer of Toulouse; Mohamed Merah,

PARIS, March 21. – France awaits the imminent surrender of the murderer of Toulouse, who is cornered by police at his home in southern France, in the region where he committed seven deadly crimes in recent days, by killing three children and one adult in a Jewish school and three soldiers of North African origin.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Mohamed Merah, Algerian-born French, 23, watched for more than a year by the secret service for media contacts with radical Islamists, gunshots were exchanged when police came to arrest him at 3.05 am (2.05 GMT). Two officers of the elite RAID-were seriously injured.

The man was defined as a member of Al Qaeda Mujahideen and confessed to the three killings for which he is charged, that of a soldier in Toulouse on June 11, two more Montauban four days later and the four of Ozar Hatorah Jewish school, located three kilometers from his home on Monday.

Interior Minister, Claude Guéant, said Merah remained for much of the morning in negotiations with the agents around him, who promised to be delivered during the afternoon. Heavily armed, the young man handed a gun in exchange for a phone for further contact with the negotiators, but said to keep other weapons, including a Kalashnikov and Uzi also other guns.

In any case, said Guéant Merah is no longer willing to hurt and felt that the danger had passed. Merah is entrenched on the first floor of a building of five of the street Sergent Vigne residential neighborhood Côte Pavée, around which the police have established a security perimeter.

The inhabitants of the building, during the early morning were forced to stay in their homes, and were evacuated at noon. To assist in the negotiations, Police summoned to the scene to the suspect’s mother, who lives in the trendy Le Mirail, but it indicated that her cooperation would not be useful because she has no influence on her son.

The Interior Minister said that during the morning the brother of the suspect was arrested, and booked by the police for being too Islamist media contact. Guéant recalled that all the crimes appeared as single murderer, but did not rule that would act in cooperation with a group, an issue that will be investigated.

By midmorning, the negotiations broke down with the young, to be restored later. The authorities hope to keep his word to be delivered during the afternoon.
