US terrorism alert dismissed as Obama politicking

US terrorism alert dismissed as Obama politicking

Further to Beyond Israeli Nuclear Terrorism, BEYOND THE SINS OF THE FATHERS, Tariq Ali and Paul McGeough, Osama bin Laden! Guilty or Innocent?, Osama bin Laden to Slaughter the Arabs and Muslims, Afghanistan! A Graveyard of Western Prejudice and Bigotry?, Afghanistan! Another Ancient Crusade of Our Time!, Afghanistan to Dickensian England! What Do You Think About It?, Afghanistan is Good and USA Must Quit Afghanistan Now, have you considered the biggest source of terrorism; i.e. Israel and USA?

Israel is a US client state and now we have confirmation that Washington essentially begged Tel Aviv to continue the illusion of a “settlement freeze” over the moribund “peace talks”. God help the Middle East.


US terrorism alert dismissed as Obama politicking

LONDON: A US terrorism alert issued this week about al-Qaeda plots to attack targets in Western Europe was politically motivated and not based on credible new information, senior Pakistani diplomats and European intelligence officials say.

The warning, which despite its vagueness led Britain, France and other countries to raise their terrorism alert levels, was an attempt to justify a recent escalation in US drone and helicopter attacks inside Pakistan that have ''set the country on fire'', said Pakistan's high commissioner to Britain, Wajid Shamsul Hasan.

Mr Hasan, a veteran diplomat who is close to Pakistan's President, Asif Ali Zardari, suggested the US President, Barack Obama, was playing politics with the alert before next month's mid-term congressional elections.

He also said Mr Obama was reacting to pressure to demonstrate that his Afghan war strategy and this year's troop surge, which are unpopular with the American public, were necessary.

''Such reports are a mixture of frustrations, ineptitude and lack of appreciation of ground realities,'' Mr Hassan said.

Dismissing claims of a developed, co-ordinated plot aimed at Britain, France and Germany, European intelligence officials also pointed the finger at the US, and specifically at the White House.

''To stitch together [the terrorist plot claims] in a seamless narrative is nonsensical,'' said one well-placed official.

While Abdul Jabbar, a Briton, and others killed by US drone strike on September 8 in Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal area were heard discussing co-ordinated plots, including possible ''commando-style'' attacks on prominent buildings and tourist sites in European capitals, security and intelligence officials said the plots were nowhere near fruition.

By making it clear that the US drone strikes were pre-emptive and were not in any way combating an imminent threat, European officials raised fresh questions about the legality of the attacks, which could be viewed as assassinations.

They said Washington was the ''driver'' behind claims about a series of ''commando-style'' plots and that the CIA - perhaps because it was worried about provoking unwelcome attention to its drone strikes - was also extremely annoyed by the publicity given to them.

Western intelligence agencies had been aware of the plot claims for months.

The German Interior Minister, Thomas de Maiziere, publicly expressed his scepticism about the US terrorism warning, describing the danger to Germany as ''hypothetical''.

The sharp rise in US unmanned drone attacks in Pakistan's tribal areas, coupled with several cross-border raids by US helicopter gunships, was destabilising Pakistan, Mr Hasan said. ''It is a threat to the democratic system.''

Mr Hasan said US politicians failed to understand how much the US needed Pakistan in the ''war on terror''. Nor did they realise that public anger over repeated US infringements of Pakistani sovereignty could boil over into attacks on American personnel and interests.

''The government does not want to go down this road,'' he said. ''But people feel abused. If they [the Americans] kill someone again, they [people] will react … There are 3000 American personnel in Pakistan. They would be very easy targets.''

In Exposing 9/11 and Israeli Connection I have attempted to append verifiable links to demonstrate:

1. 9/11 Connections and False Accusations Against Muslims

2. Israeli Connections in Many Conflicts

3. Many Disgusting Jewish Beliefs and Practices

4. Records of American False Flag Operations.

In Beyond Exposing 9/11 and Israeli Connection I have noticed that many people are not reading my materials due to censorship, inability or reasons not known to me. Yet, they are making silly remarks about me!

In Beyond Debate vs Murdering Free Speech I was addressing many issues including Faruque Ahmed's T-Shirt including the following:

USA got money. The Arabs got the oil. They need each other. No one needs war to buy oil. Please remember, Cheney: Iraq pullout would hurt Israel, Iraq: A War For Israel and Illegal and immoral invasion of Iraq are state inspired violence. Iraq provides further evidence and therefore attacking the messenger (Faruque Ahmed) is not a good idea.

Debate vs Murdering Free Speech contains Submission to Propaganda, No Mosque at Ground Zero, Robert Spencer praises Newt's intellectual leadership in identifying threat of radical Islam, Video: America at Risk: Camus, National Security, and Afghanistan, Newt Gingrich Praises Anti-Defamation League for Opposing Proposed Islamic Community Center near Ground Zero, Newt says WTC mosque construction is a "political act" on NY1 News, Newt Gingrich Statement on Proposed Mosque/Islamic Community Center near Ground Zero and many other links and forums that contain my contributions and they are subject to public scrutiny.

Peer’s Wisdom

Peer’s Wisdom

Is Faruque still Media Manager for the NSW TDA? Was his latest tirade, directed to "The Victorian Director General of Transport" (a position which doesn't exist in Vic.) and cc-ed to the media, representative of the NSW

TDA's views? The media probably thinks so which would explain why it rarely if ever approaches the NSW TDA for comment or interviews, preferring instead the more intelligent responses from the ATDA aka Jools.

Even if Faruque didn't sign off as NSW TDA Media Manager, it will be assumed that the 'letter' was from that association.

The demo got fantastic media coverage and except for a couple of shock-jocks, all of it complimentary and supportive. Not one report was racist.

> These taxi drivers do not have cameras, a global positioning system, workable afety shields > or anything in this so called 21st century Victorian work environment.

All cabs in Melbourne have cameras and GPS, and screens as in NSW are available but optional. Faruque's claim therefore makes him look like an ill-informed idiot.

It is estimated that around 30% of Melbourne taxi drivers are foreign students, the vast majority of them from India. No doubt some of them can drive a car and speak sufficient English to make themselves understood, but
few of them have sufficient proficiency to become taxi drivers let alone the ability to deal with drunks, violent hooligans and lunatics.

If Faruque was genuinely interested in their safety, he would be advocating that no foreign person should be allowed to study for a taxi driver authority unless he has had an Australian drivers licence for 2 years, is proficient in English and has passed an advanced driving course. That would save a considerable number of foreign students (and others) from being robbed, bashed and even killed. It would also help lift the profile of
cabbies in general and give us the public respect which we so badly need.

According to taxi operators I have spoken to in Melbourne 70-80% of all accidents involving their taxis also involve foreign drivers who have been driving in Melbourne for less than 2 years.

Evidently Faruque doesn't want to recognize inexperience as major danger to especially foreign students and as a crippling cost to the industry. Instead, he demands that every idiot stepping off a plane from Mumbai should be allowed to drive a cab on arrival or he will yell "racial discrimination".

Well Faruque, if you truly care about driver safety, especially Indian student and new migrant safety, you would suggest to them that until they learn to drive a car in a big city, understand what the traffic signs and passengers are saying and have some idea of the local culture and geography, the last job they should seek is that of a taxi driver. They are much safer working for McDonalds or K-mart - and they would earn more money.

Faruque is not interested in the safety of his 'brothers'. He is not after racial equality. He want's his 'brothers' to go out and get killed in the name of racial equality. And he is the official voice of the NSW TDA.
