Satellite images show Iran continuing construction on Imam Ali army base along Iraq-Syria border despite airstrikes, 17 November, 2019
The drone attack against an IDF Humvee by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad over the weekend was a dangerous escalation by the Gazan terrorist group. But it wasn’t the first time.
In late May, PIJ used a drone to drop a mortar shell on a tank stationed at the border. The attack, during a violent flare-up between Israel and terrorist organizations in Gaza, was filmed by the group and later released on social media.In the video, small explosions can be seen on and next to the tank, with Arabic captions reading “your defenses are nothing to us.”
A few days before, a drone armed with explosives launched from the northern part of the Gaza Strip landed in the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council.
While no one was injured in any of the attacks, the incident over the weekend was a warning to the IDF: terrorist groups in the blockaded coastal enclave are continuing to innovate and find new weapons to attack Israel’s military.
Beginning in late March 2018, during the “March of Return” protests, Hamas began using kites, balloons and condoms to burn Israeli land. It was a cheap but effective tool that Israel had trouble containing.
Close to a year and a half later, incendiary balloons are still being flown across the border, frustrating the military and first responders who rush to the scene to put out the flames.
Now drones are the new “it.”
This weekend’s attack is a wake-up call that Israel must take seriously because drones, like rockets, pose threats not only to troops but to the thousands of residents who live in communities near the border.
This time, an IDF Humvee was lightly damaged by an improvised explosive device dropped by the drone. And Israel hit back hard, first shelling the cell that launched the drone, and then striking Hamas targets across the northern and central Gaza Strip for close to an hour.
In comparison, five rockets were launched toward southern Israel communities the night before, leading Israel to strike several Hamas targets.
The military understands the threat, and it understands that a rocket attack on southern communities is an indiscriminate attack on civilians, while the drone attacked a military target. While there were no injuries or casualties in either event, both need to be met with an iron fist.
Hamas and other terrorist groups in the Strip have been working for years to improve their drone capabilities, both by smuggling in civilian drones and by manufacturing them locally. Israel, for its part, has worked to thwart Hamas from increasing their drone arsenal, stopping them at border crossings and, according to foreign reports, eliminating Hamas operatives involved in their drone program.
In February 2017, a Hamas drone that was making its way toward Israel from the Gaza Strip fell into the sea after being shot down by an Israeli F-16. The previous year, Hamas’s chief drone expert and engineer, Mohamed Zouari, was gunned down in his car near his home in the Tunisian city of Sfax in an operation blamed on the Mossad.
In 2012, during Operation Pillar of Defense, the IDF said it struck Hamas facilities in Gaza that were being used to develop drones capable of carrying explosives. Then-GOC southern commander Maj.-Gen. Tal Russo said at the time that the IDF destroyed “advanced weaponry like the development of a UAV that isn’t used for photography, but for attacks deep inside Israel.”
The IDF has been dealing with this phenomenon for years, and with the increase of small easily operable drones that can be bought cheaply online from anywhere in the world, the threat is only increasing.
And while they are cheap, they are difficult to spot and intercept even for skilled sharpshooters, making them the perfect weapon for terrorists.
Dozens of civilian companies have been working to provide solutions to intercept drones, and the air force is said to be testing several different technologies to intercept or hack drones with the aim of integrating them in the coming months.
In the meantime, the men and women on the ground who are the first at the scene, even before the military, are getting frustrated.
Eyal Hajabi, chief security officer at the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council, told The Jerusalem Post that the threat posed by drones is something that has increased over the past few months and is likely not limited to military targets.
“They stopped launching balloons and started with drones,” said Hajabi. “Since 2018, we have not had any quiet. [There are] rockets, tunnels, anti-tank, kites and now drones. For the rockets, we have the Iron Dome. [For] tunnels, we have an underground barrier. For anti-tank missiles, we have more barriers, but for the threat of kites – which is so primitive – we don’t have a solution, and now we have the drone threat, which is new and dangerous.”
And for Hajabi, this is not a threat that only targets the military. “The moment they succeed against the military, they will try to target communities,” he said. “Wherever they find a target, they will want to strike. We can’t say that these drones are targeting only military jeeps or positions, but if groups in Gaza can fire hundreds of rockets toward civilian communities, who is to say that they won’t send drones to communities?”
Just like the incendiary kites and balloons that wreaked havoc on Israel’s South, the threat of drones needs to be dealt with before one of them hits its mark, killing Israeli troops or civilians and dragging Israel into another war with the Gaza Strip.
TRUMP REVOLUTIONARY FIGURE ALLOWS RUSSIA RELATIONS WITH THE WEST TAKE NEW FORMAT UNDER RENEWED WORLD ORDER
After an interview with President Vladimir Putin in the Financial Times a month ago, the theme of the future “liberal world order” in its idealized version is constantly present in London’s political discourse. Increasingly, the emphasis is on the topic of moral and political leadership in the modern world.
For decades since the war, America has been the undisputed leader of the Western world, including instilling the liberal values of occupied Germany. Europe followed in everything. This state of things seems to be coming to an end. Following the victory of Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, Angela Merkel was predicted to become the new leader of the Western world. The words of the Chancellor of Germany that Europeans should take their fate into their own hands and rely primarily on themselves caused a wide resonance. But many admit that the world order, defended by the West, needs to be modernized according to the well-known maxim – if you want everything to remain as it is, change!
The decline in the confidence of the population of Western countries in the policies of their governments and the elites in general, growing material inequality and the destruction of the pillars of Western democracy, the middle class, all this as a result of global integration processes based on the liberal economy, aggravates the contradictions in society and threatens democratic foundations. At the same time, direct democracy, which the elites tend to associate with authoritarianism, insures representative when it does not work. This was clearly shown by the British referendum on Brexit.
Since then, “everything has mixed up” in the western house, which has entered a transitional state after the comfort of the announced “end of history”. That is why Trump is in a sense a revolutionary figure, not only for America. He is able to thoroughly shake up the whole American system, and with it the state of affairs in the world, in the isolationist-protectionist vein. The renewed world order and a new format of relations between Russia and the West will only begin to take shape according to the results of this “Trump revolution” (here he is promised re-election in 2020). By and large, it remains to be shown, as experts point out, whether capitalism of the 19th century is compatible with widespread democracy of the 20th century.
It is simpler for the Anglo-Americans – they take the initiative in their own hands and go further along the path of economic liberalization. Things are more complicated in Europe, where it is necessary to uphold the foundations of the liberal “end of history” understood by Europeans much more broadly – not only as a neoliberal economy, but also as a welfare state in which they have lost interest in Washington. Both that and another are incompatible – actually, from here and the crisis of the western society, which marks the resumption of the course of history.
By London standards, Russia remains among the main challenges promoted by the West values. It is believed here that Moscow is seeking recognition of its real role in world affairs and is opposed to the basic foundations of a “liberal order” led by the West, which has developed de facto, but has never become the subject of a truly collective settlement after the end of the Cold War. The West admits the possibility of humanitarian intervention, regime change, destabilization of rogue countries, primarily through sanctions pressure, which has become the main means of conducting hybrid wars.
Here they cannot openly admit that the Russian Federation adheres to the norms of the postwar international law and order with the central role of the UN. The main thing for Russia is that these standards be applied universally, and not selectively. However, the outcome of the “all against all” competition announced by Trump, and this must be directly recognized, will not be determined by the effectiveness of the corresponding efforts of Moscow, but by the course and results of the transformation processes that unfolded in the West a quarter of a century later than in the Soviet Union.
The notorious “Russian interference” in the internal affairs of leading Western countries was so actively discussed only because protest moods, dissatisfaction with the prevailing governance model – essentially uncontested, have already gained significant proportions. If the West can solve its systemic problems, and citizens believe in the viability of national governments and in the effectiveness of its proposed policies, this topic will go away by itself. In order for Russia to accept the western version of the world order, Some British experts believe that it is first necessary to restore confidence in their own countries towards the liberal democratic values that they are promoting, modernize the party and political system, and also propose effective solutions to pressing global problems, such as climate change, which have come to the fore for many.
If successful, talking with Russia, according to the UK, will become easier. The Russian leadership, even if not immediately, “recognizes the realities” and gradually reformulates national interests in the spirit of a new Western consensus, the parameters of which are not yet visible. I add that any such consensus can only be effective provided that it is truly collectively agreed upon, that is, with the direct participation of Russia, and therefore will already be pan-European, will become the basis for the political unity of our continent.
In the meantime, Moscow has no motive to agree with the rules-based world order, which it considers to be exclusive by definition, unviable and proposed by countries whose models of internal structure still have to prove their worth under changing conditions. “Challenging liberal values,” experts say, Russia is fighting to ensure that Western countries do not impose on others principles of world order that lead to chaos, as evidenced by the examples of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, migration and financial crises, and finally , Washington’s downfall of key arms control arrangements.
Moscow is not going to gain some ideological and political revenge over the West. Revenge takes the story for its proclaimed “end.” The West must prove its ability to adapt to new conditions that, in principle, arose in 1989, but declared themselves crisis only 20 years later. As at the beginning of the 20th century, globalization, with its enumeration and uneven distribution of benefits and costs, would still be in conflict with the tasks of the internal development of states. To overcome these contradictions, this time the war is not needed, it is necessary to restore social cohesion, which is easier to do at the national level, that is, within each individual country. And here, indeed, the advantage among the Anglo-Americans is the meaning of Brexit and Trump. Europe will also need to maintain the integration project, which is an order of magnitude more complicated, which explains the acuteness of the struggle around Britain’s exit from the European Union.
In the next 10 years, the economic and technological power of states, combined with social policy, will form a new geopolitical redivision, where the technological factor will play a key role. The “rule-based world”, as it was seen in the West at the end of the 20th century, will come into ever greater contradiction with the cultural and civilizational diversity of the real world, where only international law can be a universal regulatory principle, as always in history.

This manifesto will cover the political and economic reasons behind the attack, my gear, my expectations of what response this will generate and my personal motivations and thoughts – Shooter
……………………..I am against race mixing because it destroys genetic diversity and creates identity problems. Also because it’s completely unnecessary and selfish. 2nd and 3rdgeneration Hispanics form interracial unions at much higher rates than average. Yet another reason to send them back. Cultural and racial diversity is largely temporary. Cultural diversity diminishes as stronger and/or more appealing cultures overtake weaker and/or undesirable ones. Racial diversity will disappear as either race mixing or genocide will take place. But the idea of deporting or murdering all non-white Americans is horrific. Many have been here at least as long as the whites, and have done as much to build our country. The best solution to this for now would be to divide America into a confederacy of territories with at least 1 territory for each race. This physical separation would nearly eliminate race mixing and improve social unity by granting each race self-determination within their respective territory(s).
………………...My ideology has not changed for several years. My opinions on automation, immigration, and the rest predate Trump and his campaign for president. I putting this here because some people will blame the President or certain presidential candidates for the attack. This is not the case. I know that the media will probably call me a white supremacist anyway and blame Trump’s rhetoric. The media is infamous for fake news. Their reaction to this attack will likely just confirm that.
Many people think that the fight for America is already lost. They couldn’t be more wrong. This is just the beginning of the fight for America and Europe…I am honored to head the fight to reclaim my country

Like Father, Like Daughter? Ilhan Omar’s Father was Top Propaganda Official in Genocidal Barre Regime
Far Left Communist Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar’s father and other Somalian war crimes perpetrators are currently living illegally in the United States.
No wonder she supports communists, terrorists and illegal aliens!
The Gateway Pundit has obtained information that is damning for Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
Omar’s father, Nur Omar Mohamed (aka Nur Said Elmi Mohamed), is connected to the former dictator in Somalia, Said Barre. Nur and other former Barre accomplices are living in the US illegally.
We now have evidence that seems to indicate that Ilhan Omar’s father (Nur Said Elmi Mohamed) worked for the cruel regime of Barre and came to the U.S. with his daughter claiming to be victims of the cruel regime.
Maxamuud-Aar uses one twitter account specifically to defend victims of violence in Somalia and has shown that Omar’s father is a war criminal. Aar also has another account in Twitter as @MoHussein, in which he also points out whom Omar’sfather truly is.
What’s more, there have been people of the Somali community in MINNEAPOLIS, MN, whom have spoken out on how Ilhan Omar and those within the community who back her have used intimidation and threats to silence other members of the Somali community.
What’s more it seems that some secrets of Ilhan Omar and her family have been exposed in City Pages when during an interview that Ilhan Omar made with city pages’ Cory Zurowski, she said the name of her father is “Nur Said Elmi Mohamed”, but a day later Zurowski changed some information from the interview by changing the name of Omar’s father to “Nur Omar Muhamed” and also changing how many brothers Ilhan Omar has from 5 which Zurowski wrote in the original article and changed it to three brothers.
The original article also points out that Omar’s father was a friend of, and served with none other than former Colonel Yusuf Abdi Ali whom served as Colonel of the Somalian Army’s 5th Mechanized Brigade in 1987 under Barre’s dictatorship.
Both Omar’s father and Yusuf Abdi Ali fled from Somalia after the dictatorship of Barre was deposed.
To me both Ali and Omar’s father look identical which is quite strange.
What’s more I found the following website which shows information about Yusuf Abdi Ali and also has a picture of him.
Colonel Yusuf Abdi Ali, also called Tukeh, is a Somali native and a resident of the United States.
In 1984, Abdi Ali and his soldiers allegedly terrorized the dominant Isaaq population by arbitrarily detaining individuals and subjecting them to torture and cruel and inhuman treatment, including starvation and beatings, and summary executions. They allegedly also burned homes, looted the wealth of dwellers and ransacked livestock. Abdi Ali is alleged to have personally participated in many instances of torture and summary executions.
Abdi Ali fled to Canada and applied for asylum. However, in October 1992, he was deported when evidence of his alleged brutality emerged. In 1993, he went to the US, where he filed for permanent residency. Despite facing deportation in 1994, in 1996 he was permitted to return to the US where he has lived openly ever since.
On 26 June 2017, the Supreme Court denied a request for judicial review of the lower court’s decision, thus affirming its outcome. This opened the path to proceed to hold Abdi Ali responsible for torture and extrajudicial killings against Warfaa under the Torture Victim Protection Act.
The case is currently ongoing.

The profiling of critics by Turkish embassies, part of large-scale spying on diaspora groups that has irked many host governments, has taken a new twist in Sri Lanka,South Asian country that was recently hit by a string of terrorist attacks.
The Turkish Embassy in Colombo leaked the names of critics of Turkey’s Islamist ruler, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, accusing them of terrorism, when no evidence to support any of these ludicrous charges leveled by the government in Turkey exists. The critics are believed to be affiliated with the Gülen movement, a vocal critic of the Erdoğan regime over pervasive corruption in the government and Erdoğan’s arming and funding of radical jihadist groups in Syria and Libya.
The names of 50 Turks, mostly teachers and businesspeople who had been living in Sri Lanka for years, were released with their passport numbers, apparently as a result of work clandestinely carried out by the Turkish ambassador and his staff at the embassy. The goal was to push Sri Lankan authorities to crack down on Erdoğan government critics in the South Asian country. The first attempt by the embassy to smear this civic group was made in 2015, a move that was was initially balked at by the Sri Lankan government. It was not surprising given the fact that most governments have refused to work with Turkey in going after Erdoğan’s critics, who have not broken the laws of their host countries and certainly have not been involved in any crimes.
Yet, the Turkish Embassy in Colombo, under relentless pressure from a headquarters that was demanding results, continued to raise the matter with Sri Lankan authorities in 2017 and 2018. Many Turkish diplomats are obviously afraid that they could end up in jail just like some 600 diplomats who were dismissed and labeled overnight as terrorists in Turkey without any effective judicial or administrative investigation.
When churches and hotels in the capital of Colombo were targeted in a series of coordinated suicide bombings on April 21, 2019, killing 259 people, the embassy staff saw an opportunity to make a fresh attempt against Erdoğan critics just like scavengers that feed on carcasses. Branding them as terrorists, Turkish Ambassador Tunca Özçuhadar tried to exploit sensitivities in Sri Lanka and spin his own story in a bid to portray innocent and law-abiding Turkish expatriates in Sri Lanka as terrorists. In a statement put out on May 3, 2019, the Turkish Embassy admitted that it had been sharing with Sri Lankan authorities information on teachers and businesspeople affiliated with the Gülen movement for the last four years.
The illegal profiling by the embassy was also revealed by former State Foreign Minister Wasantha Senanayake, who announced that the Turkish ambassador had handed over a list of 50 Turks to the ministry when he was in office. Later, the ambassador even bypassed the foreign ministry and directly raised the issue with the Defense Ministry in the hope that he could secure the deportation or extradition of critics. The embassy faxed lists of critics to the Defense Ministry on at least two occasions.
Turkey has branded one-third of all its diplomats including high-profile ambassadors who served as advisors to prime ministers and presidents as terrorists; purged over 4,000 judges and prosecutors; and expelled over 70 percent of its generals and admirals on dubious terrorism charges. Over half a million people including journalists, teachers, professors and human rights defenders have faced criminal charges since 2016. Some 15 percent of the police force, mostly veterans and senior chiefs, have been arrested on terrorism charges.
Turkey has held the world record in recent years in terms of jailing journalists under abusive anti-terror charges. According to the Stockholm Center for Freedom, nearly 200 journalists and media workers are behind bars in Turkey on charges of terrorism for writing critically about the government.
The scandalous leak of private information by the embassy and the branding of teachers as terrorists prompted some on the list to file complaints with Sri Lankan authorities. Nordic Monitor has learned that eight Turks in Sweden who served in Sri Lanka at Gülen-affiliated schools and institutions between 2002 and 2015 lodged formal grievances with the Sri Lankan Embassy in Stockholm, asking for an explanation for the published list. Some of the people named in the list have never even been in Sri Lanka, raising questions as to how the embassy gathered the data.
“It is unacceptable that I have been declared a terrorist in Sri Lanka, where I worked for two years! I’m willing to do whatever it takes to correct this mistake as soon as possible. If necessary, I will make a request to international institutions such as the UN to rectify this situation. It is a clear assault on my personal rights that I was declared a terrorist in Sri Lankan newspapers without any evidence. I hope this serious mistake is corrected soon. Otherwise, I will act to preserve my rights in Sri Lankan and international courts,” one Turkish national wrote to the Sri Lankan Embassy in Stockholm.
About a dozen Turkish nationals who fled the long arm of Erdoğan in Sri Lanka have taken refuge in Sweden as political asylum seekers. Embassy officials responded by saying that they had conveyed the grievances to headquarters in Sri Lanka and asked for an explanation about the leaked list of names.
It is not uncommon to uncover sensitive data like personally identifiable information (PII), login credentials, financial information, and medical records being offered for sale on the dark web. However, it is incredibly rare for criminal hackers to steal and then attempt to sell military documents on an open market.
