Times of Israel reports that Hamas’ explosives chief blew himself up a couple of days ago.
Hamas’s military wing, the Qassam Brigades, said in a statement posted to its official website that high-ranking field commander Muhammad Hemada Walid al-Quqa, 37, died Sunday morning. Other reports from Gaza said he was 44 years old.
According to the statement, Quqa was “preparing equipment” in the field when he was injured in an explosion.
According to Israel’s Channel 2 news, Quqa was the head of Hamas’s explosives unit and the Qassam Brigades said he had been involved in “manufacturing and assembling explosives,” among other activities.
I haven’t the slightest idea whether it’s true or not, but it’s a nice thought. Just thought you’d want some good news for your Tuesday morning.
The pusillanimous shit weasel who six months ago bruised his mangina and claimed PTSD after firing an AR-15 has surpassed several levels of stupid in his latest column in the New York Daily News.
In an effort to power wash the sand out of his labial folds after Hillary Clinton’s loss last month, paint himself to be less of a coward than he actually is, and apparently advocate retaliation for what he obviously believes to be Russian meddling in our election system that caused Queen Pantsuit to lose the election, (because it couldn’t possibly be that she was the world’s shittiest candidate, and no amount of lipstick could pretty up that pig), KUNTzman has decided to be a badass from the safety of his keyboard, while sipping his venti latte in his New York pad, claiming that the murder of Russia’s Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov by a deranged, Islamist fuckbag was somehow justified.
As Vladimir Putin’s man in Turkey, Karlov was the public face of that murderous dictator’s war crimes around the globe and of oppression at home. Andrei Karlov is the human embodiment of policies that deployed bunker busters to kill babies, sent fighter planes on scorched earth bombing runs that destroyed a whole city, aided Syrian madman Bashar al-Assad in his campaign that has killed hundreds of thousands, and even ordered attacks on UN aid workers.
“Justice has been served,” KUNTzman claims.
Now, you know I have no love for Putin or for Russia. My personal opinion is that the Russians are waging asymmetric warfare on the West, and that their infringement on a sovereign nation’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, their fomenting of unrest in the former Soviet Republics, and their outright threats to a couple of Scandinavian nations should they decide it’s time to join the NATO alliance and to eastern European NATO members, as well as their possession of nuclear weapons, makes the Russians an existential threat to the West and to the United States. That’s in addition to their recent flirtations with fascism and outright oppression!
So, no… I’m not a Russia fan by any stretch.
That said, the mental acrobatics in which he engages to justify the murder of a diplomat in Turkey would make a Romanian gymnast give Gersh the finger!
First, he compares Putin to Hitler, immediately disqualifying himself from adult conversation.
After watching the death of Karlov, I could not help but remember the case of Ernst vom Rath, the Nazi ambassador to France, who was gunned down inside his consulate by a Jewish student in 1938.
Like Karlov, Rath was the public face of atrocity — in this case, Adolf Hitler’s genocide, anti-Semitism and coming global aggression.
This irresponsible hysteria is far out of the realm of sanity, and anyone sane should point at KUNTzman and laugh hysterically at his inability to voice a coherent thought outside of “DERP! DERP! HITLER!”
While I’m not thrilled with Russia’s support of Syrian dictator Assad, but I also understand their concerns, including historic relationships between the leaders, the importance of Russian arms sales to Syria, and the defense of Russia’s only port in the Med, as well as concerns about jihadist fighters making their way back to Russia.
Whether we like it or not, and whether we understand it or not, looking at it from the Russians’ point of view, they do have legitimate interests there.
And let’s not forget the wholesale murder of millions and millions of people by Hitler that’s not even a close comparison to Putin’s involvement in Syria!
Hitler was an ideologue, and frankly not altogether sane. Putin is an opportunist, a (by some accounts) kleptomaniac, and hungry for power. Putin isn’t driven by racism or by a hatred of certain religions. He wants to restore Russia to world power status, and he wants to be the head of that world power. The motivations are vastly different, but apparently KUNTzman’s tiny, shriveled up little brain isn’t even capable of comprehending that much.
And finally, Russia’s capabilities and intent vastly differ from Nazi Germany. Only to a quivering dick wrinkle like KUNTzman would the comparison be even remotely valid!
That said, KUNTzman’s sniveling manifesto is typical of the inadequate, feeble, pajama-boy metrosexual, pseudo male with an inferiority complex. Given his quaking distress at firing a varmint rifle, it’s only logical that he would be overjoyed at another man doing the dirty work he wishes he could do himself as he furiously masturbates into his pink Hello Kitty towel, dreaming of co-opting others – whether government or terrorist – to use force as his surrogate in order to implement his dirty little tyrannical schemes.
Worse yet, KUNTzman is stupid. Oh, dear lord, KUNTzman is stupid! So stupid, that my eyes roll to the back of my head, and I need help retrieving them, after reading the turds smeared on bathroom walls that pass for his writing! So stupid, that one has to wonder how he ties his shoelaces without throttling himself with them. Soooooo dumb…
Karlov’s job in Turkey was to ease tensions over Russia’s atrocities in Syria and its incursions inside Turkey itself — meaning his job was to enable and normalize Vladimir Putin. Given that role, he wasn’t a diplomat, but a soldier, and his death is the same whether it came on a battlefield outside Aleppo or in an art gallery in Ankara. His killer was also a soldier — not a terrorist, mind you, but a soldier. Terrorists kill innocent people with trucks in Christmas markets or with planes in skyscrapers. Soldiers kill their fellow soldiers.
Diplomats are very specifically noncombatants. Killing a person whose job it is to ensure that war DOESN’T happen between two countries is certainly not the same as killing an adversary in battle.
If it was, the murder of Chris Stevens and three others in Benghazi, Libya in 2012 would have been perfectly justifiable. By KUNTzman’s logic, the murder of U.S. military personnel at recruitment centers in Chattanooga, TN last year by a swine-humping terrorist – personnel who were not engaged in combat – was OK. And the murders of John Gordon Mein, Cleo Noel, Rodger Davies, Francis Meloy, and Adolph Dubs were also just fine, because they were Soldiers in KUNTzman’s warped logic.
But just as KUNTzman knows fuckall about weapons, he also knows exactly jack and shit about combat and the rules of war. Turkey and Russia are not at war. The terrorist who shot Karlov was not a Soldier. He was a rogue Turkish cop, whose act of murder was celebrated by ISIS, and who gave the ISIS index finger signal, while shouting “Allahu Akbar” after shooting the ambassador. And he’s also not Syrian, as KUNTzman claims. He was born in Soke, a town in Turkey’s western Aydin province, so KUNTzman can’t possibly even justify this as combat, since the assailant wasn’t even from the country that’s supposedly engaged in a “war” with Russia. The assassination occurred at an art exhibit, ferfuckssake!
But it’s all the same to KUNTzman, because he has no comprehension of foreign or military policy!
In other words, he simply enjoys the murder of people he doesn’t like at the hands of others, because he’s too much of an oozing cunt to take the gun in his own hands and do it himself. He prefers others engage in violence on his behalf, and since in his empty mind, Russia = Hitler because somehow, according to the latest leftist narrative to excuse the C-Hag’s defeat, Putin caused Clinton to lose the election, it’s OK to murder a man whose entire mission was to ensure peaceful relations between Russia and Turkey.
KUNTzman doesn’t like war… unless it’s used to excuse acts of Muslim terrorist violence, in which case, “Justice has been served.”
UPDATE: Looks like the police got the pig-fucking bastard suspected of blowing up bombs in New York and New Jersey this weekend.
A law enforcement official, who agreed to speak about the investigation only on the condition of anonymity, said they had conclusive evidence that Mr. Rahami was connected not just to the Manhattan explosion in the Chelsea neighborhood, but also to a bombing that took place earlier on Saturday on the Jersey Shore.
Not that I had a bad weekend. Mine was actually decent. I took a break from blogging and did other stuff, but apparently all hell broke loose on the east coast this weekend.
There was a bomb blast in Chelsea, with a second device found a few blocks away. The first blast injured 29 people. The second device, left in the middle of a residential block, There was a bomb earlier that day in New Jersey. There was a suspicious device found at a train station in Elizabeth, New Jersey early this morning, and when the bomb squad began messing with it, the damn thing blew up. The bombs were filled with shrapnel such as metal pieces and ball bearings. Sound familiar?
Investigators in New York determined that both bombs were made using pressure cookers that were filled with explosives and shrapnel, including ball bearings or metal BBs, and could be detonated using flip phones and Christmas lights, a law-enforcement official said. The devices are similar to those used in the Boston Marathon bombings.
And let’s not forget there was a stabbing attack in Minnesota, where people were wounded by a psychotic shit weasel screeching something about allah. Islamic State already claimed that frothing fucktard as their own.
Many posts on my social media feed waxed sarcastic about the perpetrators of these latest incidents, calling on the Amish Tea Party and those extremist Mennonites to step forward and claim responsibility. It would be amusing, if it wasn’t for the fact that it’s not. Once again, a certain demographic appears to be responsible for the attacks.
The sitting idiot in the NYC Mayor’s Mansion – Bill de Blasio – still refuses to label the attacks as terrorism, even though New York’s tyrannical fuckwit governor Cuomo has “bravely” uttered the “T” word, and then proceeded to shield de Blasio’s cowardice and refusal to do so with a “what he really meant to say was that there was no connection with international terrorism and that is correct. Right, Bill Buddy?”
Well, gosh! As long as there’s no connection with INTERNATIONAL terrorism, I guess we’re OK. Morons.
Rahami was born in Afghanistan, according to the FBI. So he’s someone who came to this country and either became naturalized or received his citizenship when he was young after his parents had been. So there might very well be an international component to this incident.
I wrote about motivations a few months ago when I discussed directed vice inspired attacks. I said then, as I say now, that it’s the ISIS inspired attacks that worry me more.
Planned, coordinated attacks can be prevented, although obviously not even close to always. But it is hard to predict whom the IS social media campaigns have reached, whom they have converted, and what those feeble-minded, easily-influenced monkeys are planning to do once they pledge their heart and soul to IS. Thanks to the Internet IS reach is wide, and even the poorest, slum-dwelling derelict can have access to their message.
Being American citizens and taking inspiration It certainly doesn’t make lone wolf psycho attacks any less connected with international terrorism.
Once again, I note that any terrorist douche can get inspired by an ISIS page, website, or program. Any weak-minded ignoramus can make an immediate decision to pledge his soul to allah, ISIS, or the Great Pumpkin. Inspiration comes from many sources, and the inspired attacks are, for the most part, sloppy, unplanned, and hard to track. We have tools to track coordinated, planned attacks. There are electronic communications, suspicious financial transfers, suspicious travel… you name it. It doesn’t take much coordination to pick up a knife and go a’stabbin, or to grab a bunch of metal parts and a cooking implement. A psycho terrorist can get a wild hair up his ass in the shape of allah and go on a rampage without much planning.
The positive news is that there’s a lot of information that can be gleaned from the unexploded device. Fingerprints, DNA (maybe hair or sweat or something), the place where the cell phone to be used as a detonation device was purchased. It’s possible the place of purchase even has video of who bought the thing!
Another positive bit of news is that no one has died, although that certainly seems to have been the goal.
But expect more to come. I have no doubt these ostensibly “minor” attacks will keep on happening. It benefits ISIS, because they can claim attacks without cost or threat to their own personnel. And it benefits those in whose political interest it is to claim no connection to terrorism.
Because we won the War on Terror, right?
I woke up this morning to the news that Nicholas Young – a 36 year old Metro police officer – has been arrested and charged with attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State.
This is significant for several reasons.
- According to the Washington Post, this is the first time a US law enforcement officer has been accused of attempting to aid IS;
- This swine had worked for Metro police for more than a decade; and
- The investigation into this pig began in 2010. He has been under investigation for nearly six years, during which he was allowed to work in on of the busiest mass transit systems in the country – a system that daily carries thousands of members of the military and the intelligence community, as well as thousands upon thousands of tourists, including children!
Look, I get that they had to gather enough evidence to indict him without arousing suspicion. I understand that firing him, or transferring him to a desk job, or even changing his job in any way could have compromised the case.
The indictment below reveals in painstaking detail just what it took to finally nab this fetid piece of swine shit.
Several undercover officers and HUMINT sources were involved, and Young’s behavior and travel were incontrovertible proof of his involvement with the terrorist group, as well as disturbing signs that Young was a sociopath who should never have been allowed to join a law enforcement organization in the first place.
Young told an undercover officer that he used to torture animals as a child, and spoke in graphic detail about his hatred for the FBI and what would happen to anyone who betrayed him (decapitation is part of it).
He hung out with terrorists and advised at least one of them on OPSEC. In conversations with an undercover officer, he threatened any law enforcement officers who attempted to search his house. He traveled to Libya more than once and admitted to the undercover officer that he had hung out with rebels attempting to overthrow the Qaddafi regime.
Over the nearly six years during which the investigation had lasted, this terrorist had access to the country’s second busiest mass transit systems! But only now – after he attempted to provide a couple of hundred dollars’ worth of gift cards to an individual he thought was affiliated with ISIL – he was immediately fired?
This is mindboggling to me, not just as a writer, but also as someone who takes the Metro every day to work. Metro knew about this terrorist. He had been under investigation since 2010, and they worked with FBI and other law enforcement agencies on this guy. And yet, he carried a firearm, he was allowed access to a mass transit system that carries hundreds of thousands of people per day and that could cripple the region should it be targeted, and he worked with other law enforcement personnel. I have friends who are Metro police officers, and this is just unconscionable to me!
I shudder to think what kind of damage this piece of crap could have done in the six years he’s been under investigation, and longer, given that he apparently was already radicalized when the investigation into him began!
As glad as I am that this sociopathic piece of crap has finally been caught, I have to wonder why it took six years to finally fire him.
Six years, in which he could have committed unspeakable acts of violence facilitated by the access he had!
And while authorities say he had no plans to target the metro transit system, the thought that this swine-humping terrorist had worked there for six years and could have wreaked untold havoc is making me itchy.
In January of this year I discussed terrorism on this blog. I assessed that IS-inspired terrorism is actually more dangerous than IS-directed terrorism.
IS directed terrorism is easier to track. There will be planning. There will be electronic communication. There will be money transfers. There’s always a chance that someone will report suspicious activity, whether it’s banks or individuals. Planning can be compromised by lack of electronic security.
Contrast this with ISIS-inspired attacks in which lone wolves decide to take it upon themselves – for whatever reason, be it anger, religious zealotry, or mental illness – to murder scores of innocent people and screech their allegiance to Allah, the Islamic State, or whatever terrorist entity of the day moves them. IS doesn’t take part in planning. There are no money transfers, no plans being made by phone, text, or email. ISIS isn’t directly involved, although their leadership is certainly delighted by the results!
When the two scumbags launched an attack on San Bernardino, ISIS praised the two terrorists, but stopped short of claiming responsibility. The female gargoyle pledged her allegiance to ISIS in an online posting, but the attack doesn’t appear to have been directed by them. They simply stockpiled guns, went on a rampage, and tried to get away in a car, which didn’t work out so well for them.
During the past couple of weeks, a series of terrorist attacks rocked Europe. There were several attacks in Germany, only one of which doesn’t appear right now to have been inspired by ISIS (although one witness claims she heard the murderer screaming “Allahu Akbar”), and one in the French city of Nice on Bastille Day, which killed more than 80 people when a terrorist named Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel plowed a into crowds, leaving a street strewn with bodies before taking a hike to swine humping hell.
It doesn’t matter if the attackers were mentally ill, bullied, or inspired by radical Islam. There was no planning, no strings to unravel in terms of tracking potential future attacks, and lots of carnage.
Worse yet, it requires no effort or resources on the part of ISIS, other than to applaud the bloodshed and publicly claim credit for inspiring the attacks. Hell, it’s free labor for them that doesn’t require their fighters to leave the AO! It’s free publicity, and it’s like a contagious disease that empowers and encourages other frothing loons to stage rampages of their own.
Meanwhile, what makes inspired attacks even worse is that it gives clueless politicians reason not to acknowledge problems with ISIS, radical Islam, or anything related to it, because the attacker was sick/mental/bullied/*insert stupid reason that’s not terrorism here*.
I know some will claim that it really doesn’t matter. Lives have been lost. Security has been compromised, as has the people’s confidence in their governments’ ability to protect them from violence.
But it does matter, because the terrorists’ goals are being accomplished without much effort or risk on their part. And that’s a big problem.
