Istanbul airport explosions:
10 dead, Justice minister says


(CNN)[Latest developments, published at 4:20 p.m. ET]

-- At least 10 people have been killed and 20 others injured in the attack at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport, Turkey's Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag told CNN.

The two suicide bombers were also killed. Bozdag said one attacker "first opened fire with a Kalashnikov then detonated himself" at the airport entrance.

In total two bombs exploded. One of them was located just outside the terminal on the pavement, the other was at the security gate at the entrance to the airport.

Authorities said no bombs exploded within the airport building itself, according to the minister

-- A Turkish official told CNN that police fired shots at suspects near the international terminal in an effort to neutralize them.
-- Videos posted on social media show travelers sitting on the airport floor. A man shouts, "Get down! Get down!" Someone cries as a gunshot rings out.
-- The attacks happened on a warm summer night at the airport, east of Istanbul, that is the 11th busiest in the world in terms of passenger traffic. CNN's Ali Veshi says it is a modern, sophisticated airport. "There are all of the major European and American boutiques there," said Velshi, who has traveled through Turkey many times.
"... You see people of all shapes and colors, in all sorts of dress. If you want to target the cosmopolitan nature of Istanbul, this is possibly the most cosmopolitan, heavily populated part. You can target tourist areas, but this is the part where the world comes together."

√ @BREITBART:

Update: Habertürk reports that authorities believe two “members of a terrorist organization” threw four hand grenades at an X-ray machine in security. Four explosions were recorded before police began firing at the suspects.

The broadcast governing body of Turkey has imposed an indefinite media ban on coverage of the bombings, which prevents Turkish outlets from reporting on it and officials from discussing the attack. This has become an increasingly common measure following terrorist attacks under President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

At least 31 people have been killed in an attack on the main airport in Istanbul, a senior Turkish official has told the Associated Press.

Initial indications suggest Islamic State was behind the attack, the official said.

Figures suggested up to 50 people had been killed - however that has now been downgraded.

WATCH: New ISIS Mass Execution Video Is Directed at Turkey

Published 10:53 am EDT, April 30, 2016  Updated 11:47 am EDT, June 15, 2016
WATCH: New ISIS Mass Execution Video Is Directed at Turkey
In a new video purportedly released by the Islamic State, ISIS delivers a video message threat to Turkey with Turkish subtitles, showing a montage of past executions. The video was released on April 29 on ISIS terrorist channels.

...
The video is a music video directed to recruit ISIS’ Turkish sympathizers. It is also widely believed that beyond the Islamic State’s appeal to some in Turkey, the Turkish government is playing a “double game” with ISIS. Outwardly opposing the group, while possibly striking oil deals with its leaders. Russian Times reports that Syrian Kurds have found evidence that points to “commercial scale oil smuggling operations and cozy relations between ISIS and Turkey.”

Security Message: Turkey Travel Warning
June 27, 2016
The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens of increased threats from terrorist groups throughout Turkey and to avoid travel to southeastern Turkey.  This replaces the Travel Warning dated March 29, 2016.
 
Foreign and U.S. tourists have been explicitly targeted by international and indigenous terrorist organizations. As stated in the Worldwide Caution dated March 3, 2016, throughout Europe extremists have targeted large sporting events, theatres, open markets, aviation services, transportation systems, and public venues where people congregate as well as religious sites and high-profile events. U.S. citizens are reminded to review personal security plans and remain vigilant at all times.  U.S. Government personnel in Turkey remain subject to travel restrictions in the southeastern provinces of Hatay, Kilis, Gaziantep, Sanliurfa, Sirnak, Diyarbakir, Van, Siirt, Mus, Mardin, Batman, Bingol, Tunceli, Hakkari, Bitlis, and Elazig.  U.S. citizens should avoid areas in close proximity to the Syrian border.
 
The Department of State extended its March 29, 2016 ordered departure of family members of U.S. Government personnel posted to the U.S. Consulate in Adana and family members of U.S. Government civilians in Izmir province through July 26, 2016.  The Department of State terminated its March 29, 2016 ordered departure declaration for Mugla province. The U.S. Consulate in Adana remains open and will continue to provide all routine consular services.

 Just an opinion, the intelligence community has plants, informers on the pad or planted agents.. If they don't , they are negligent, derelict,or werse.

 Granted these terror cells are for the most part sheep dipped ISIS finatics,but not all of them.
That said, we all realize the dangers of these nutters, hopefully we can cut of the tail and get to the head, the true masterminds behind the insanity.

 Istanbul airport suicide bombers seconds from death mission as police fear another attack 'imminent'

More is now known about the three ISIS jihadis - described as being from Russia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan


These are the three ISIS suicide bombers bombers pictured entering Istanbul Ataturk Airport before they slaughtered 43 people and injured 240.

The jihadis who used suicide bomb vests and high velocity AK-47s and Glock pistols to carry out their attack are understood to be from Russia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan.

All three are understood to have Russian passports in their possession.

The Turkish prime minister had previously linked the attack to ISIS - although the terror group is yet to claim any responsibility.

ISIS leadership involved in Istanbul attack planning, Turkish source says
By Faith Karimi, Steve Almasy and Gul Tuysuz, CNN
Thu June 30, 2016

Istanbul (CNN) — Turkish officials have strong evidence that ISIS leadership was involved in the planning of the Istanbul airport terrorist attack, a senior government source told CNN on Thursday.

Officials believe the men -- identified by state media as being from Russia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan -- entered Turkey about a month ago from the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa in Syria, bringing with them the suicide vests and bombs used in the attack, the source said.

The terrorists rented an apartment in the Fatih district of Istanbul, where one of the attackers left behind his passport, the Turkish government source said.

The attack was "extremely well planned with ISIS leadership involved," the source said.

Turkish police visited the Fatih area and showed neighbors video and photographs of three men they say are believed to have carried out the attack, residents said.
...
One man, the owner of the Bekir Yar Emlak real estate agency, said he told police that the picture showed the men who had lived in his apartment. He said he was shocked to learn they could be the suspects.
...
A female neighbor in the same building, who didn't want to disclose her name, said there was some smell of chemicals a couple of days ago from the apartment, prompting other neighbors to ask her whether there was a gas leak.

...

CNN contributor Michael Weiss, author of "ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror," said the nationalities revealed Thursday buttress the claim of ISIS involvement.

"One of the toughest battalions in ISIS is called the Uzbek battalion," he said. "These were the guys who were essentially on the front lines guarding Falluja, the city they just lost in Iraq."

"Ask anybody inside ISIS or who's fought ISIS. People from the former Soviet Union tend to be the most battle-hardened and willing to die," he said.

CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen said the revelation of the Istanbul attackers' nationalities will serve to "open people's eyes to the fact that there's a very substantial Russian, former Soviet Union, presence within ISIS, both in terms of the foot soldiers and the leaders."

Estimates of Russian fighters involved with ISIS range from 2,000 to 7,000, he said.

July Fourth travelers brace for tougher U.S. security after Turkey attack
NEW YORK  |  By Joseph Ax

Millions of U.S. travelers flying during the busy Fourth of July holiday weekend will face heightened security and increased delays due to the deadly attacks at Istanbul's main airport, officials and air security experts said on Wednesday.

Airport officials were hesitant to reveal specific safety measures taken following Tuesday's attacks by suspected Islamic State militants, which killed 41 people and wounded 239 at Europe's third-busiest airport, but increased vigilance appeared to have resulted in at least one airport disruption.

A terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York was briefly evacuated on Wednesday morning while police investigated a report of a suspicious package.

The implementation of stricter security measures will likely increase travel time this weekend, air security experts said, even as the Transportation Security Administration continues to struggle amid personnel shortages.

exactly - no mention of Muslim Chechens in ISIS - ( because maybe they were used by the CIA to bring down the USSR?) and with linkage to the Boston Bombing? No, that could not be...

interestingly we call Chechens (and other ppl from that region) "people of caucasian nationality"
so caucasian is our analogue for 'blacks' and not for 'white male' as in the US
here nationality means etnicity. for some reason it is used that way in Russia.

if speaking generally i think chechen separatism was inevitable due to fallacious lenin's/soviet territorial-administrative politics with regard to minorities and regions assigned to them. unfortunately post-soviet Russia continue supporting that unhealthy practice.

with regard to first chechen war in the early 90ies some think that it was a 'dispute' between moscow chechens and regional chechens. not an expert on the topic but Chechnya (Ichkeriya) defacto became and was independent for some time but as these tribes (united by the 'chechen' name) have never had a state it became a  purely govern criminal enclave and some untolerable things started to happen (like an attack on budenovsk by basaev)

i dont know how big was US impact on chechen terrorists. i d say that Saudis and Turks sponsored and supported them to the greater extent.

with regard to ISIS i think it is anglo-european project, while the US supports so called moderate rebels (Al-Nusra etc) and kurds. seems guys are used to fight for oil&gas routs control.
also it is corraborated by the fact that Russia (being an anglo-european asset or golem so to speak) is/was targeting not the ISIS but 'moderate rebels'

Islamic State Gunmen Seize Hostages and Fire Explosives in Bangladesh
By JULFIKAR ALI MANIK, GEETA ANAND and RUSSELL GOLDMAN
JULY 1, 2016

...

Eight to 10 armed men entered the restaurant, where 20 foreigners were dining, around 8:45 p.m., according to Sumon Reza, a kitchen worker at the restaurant who escaped and spoke to the news media. The attackers shouted “ALLah is great” before opening fire and detonating several explosives, Mr. Reza told reporters. Mr. Reza said the attackers were armed with pistols, swords and bombs.

Several foreigners worked at the restaurant, including an Italian citizen who escaped and an Argentine, whose whereabouts is unknown, local news media reported.

Mr. Reza said he and another employee were able to escape by jumping from the building’s second floor.

“They blasted several crude bombs, causing wide-scale panic among everyone,” Mr. Reza told a Bangladeshi newspaper, The Daily Star. “I managed to flee during this confusion.”

...
The police in Bangladesh say the killings have been organized by two militant Islamic groups that recruit young men from religious schools and train them to carry out attacks.

Nearly 95 killed in overnight Baghdad
bombings claimed by Islamic State

Ahmed Rasheed   July 3, 2016

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Nearly 95 people were killed and 200 wounded in two bombings overnight in Baghdad, most of them in a busy shopping area as residents celebrated Ramadan, police and medical sources said Sunday.

The attack is the deadliest since U.S.-backed Iraqi forces last month scored a major victory when it dislodged Islamic State from their stronghold of Falluja, an hour's drive west of the capital.

Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi had ordered the offensive after a series of deadly bombings in Baghdad, saying Falluja served as a launchpad for such attacks on the capital. However, bombings have continued.

A convoy carrying Abadi who had come to tour the site of the bombings was pelted with stones and bottles by residents, angry at what they felt were false promises of better security.

A refrigerator truck packed with explosives blew up in the central district of Karrada, killing 91 people and injuring at least 200. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement circulated online by supporters of the ultra-hard line Sunni group. It said the blast was a suicide bombing.

Ramadan 2016 began in the evening of Sunday, June 5
Ramadan ends in the evening of Tuesday, July 5

When is Eid 2016?

The festival of Eid takes place at the end of the holy month of Ramadan - something that depends on the sighting of the new moon.

Eid will fall on Tuesday July 5 or Wednesday July 6 this week, according to the Islamic Cultural Centre in London.

If the crescent moon is seen on Monday July 4 then Ramadan will end after 29 days and Eid al-Fitr will be celebrated on Tuesday.

But if the moon is not seen, then Ramadan will last a day longer and Eid will be celebrated on Wednesday
.

The Saudi Supreme Court has called on Muslims to look for the crescent moon on Monday evening to determine the beginning of the Eid al-Fitr holiday.

Indonesia's Government has decided the celebration of Eid al-Fitr will fall on Wednesday
...
The Eid Festival, organised by the Mayor London, will take place in Trafalgar Square in London on Saturday July 9.

No, Obama, Bangladesh Islamic
State Terrorists Were not Poor

JOEL B. POLLAK   4 Jul 2016

The Obama administration argues that radical Islamic terrorism,
like the horrific Bangladesh attack that killed 20 foreign
hostages, is a reaction to poverty.


Quote
But some of the Bangladeshi jihadis were rich, educated members of the country’s privileged elite.

From Reuters:

Posts on Facebook identified the men, pictured on an Islamic State website grinning in front of a black flag, as Nibras Islam, Rohan Imtiaz, Meer Saameh Mubasheer, Andaleeb Ahmed and Raiyan Minhaj.

Most went to prestigious schools or universities in Dhaka and Malaysia, officials said.

“A majority of the boys who attacked the restaurant came from very good educational institutions. Some went to sophisticated schools. Their families are relatively well-to-do people,” Bangladeshi Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu told India’s NDTV.

Their motivation was radical Islam, pure and simple,
which retains an ability to attract ambitious young
men looking for fame and a twisted kind of redemption.

Istanbul nearly a ghost town as tourists stay away
Katy Lee•July 03, 2016

Istanbul (AFP) - The tourists are so scarce you can hear their footsteps clattering down the empty shopping street. Nearly a week after the deadly airport bombings, it is eerily quiet in Istanbul.

The magic of Turkey's biggest city has been seducing visitors for centuries, from its array of historic mosques and palaces to its stunning views over the sparkling Bosphorus.

But for people working in the once-thriving tourist trade, Tuesday's gun and suicide bomb spree represents one more nail in the coffin for an industry already reeling from a string of attacks this year.

"It's disastrous," said Orhan Sonmez as he stood hopelessly offering tours of the Hagia Sophia, the cavernous former mosque and church that is now a museum.

"All my life I've been a tour guide. Most of us have come to a turning point where we don't know if we can go on. It's tragic."

Restaurants sit empty in the Sultanahmet tourist district, and five-star hotel rooms can be booked for bargain prices.

In happier years the queues outside the Hagia Sophia might have stretched an hour or longer at this time of year -- today you can walk straight in and share the place with just a smattering of other visitors.

Baghdad bombing: Death toll rises to 165 in
single Isis attack on Iraqi capital

Adam Withnall

The death toll from an Isis bomb attack on a commercial district of Baghdad has risen to 165, according to officials.
With a conflicting toll from the AFP news agency suggesting more than 200 could have been killed, the lorry bomb attack may rank as the deadliest single bombing in Isis's history.

Police and health officials said on Monday that rescuers are still looking for people missing in the rubble. At least 185 people were wounded.

Bomb-making class gone awry? Another one of those “gas leaks” that have become so common in Europe and the U.K. in recent years? Some other form of diversity and cultural enrichment? No telling. It could be an accident. It could be jihad. That’s the exhilarating aspect of Ramadan!

Ramadan begins in Indonesia as Muslims with swords attack police, one dead, three injured

May 17, 2018 8:44 am By Robert Spencer

Ramadan is the month of jihad, the month when Muslims strive to please Allah more fervently. And so because murdering Infidels who are considered to be at war with Allah is a pious act, there is generally more bloodshed during Ramadan than during the rest of the year.

...
    (CNN)Four attackers armed with samurai swords targeted a police station in western Indonesia on Wednesday morning, killing at least one officer, police said.

    The individuals crashed a vehicle into the entrance of the Riau province police headquarters in Pekanbaru, on the island of Sumatra, and began attacking officers, national police spokesman Setyo Wasisto said. Police shot and killed the four suspected terrorists, he added.

    The attackers were members of a terror group called the Indonesian Islamic State, which is affiliated with ISIS, Wasisto said.

    The driver of the van then attempted to the flee the scene, hitting and killing one police officer, he added. Two police officers and one local journalist were also injured in the attack?.

Ramadan Rage:
Islamic Terrorists Kill at Least 203,
Wound 322 in First 10 Days

28 May 2018 - Edwin Mora

Jihadists have killed more than 200 people and injured an excess of 300 others so far during Ramadan, the holiest month for Muslims, according to a Breitbart News tally.

In the first ten days of the holy month, which started on May 17 for most Muslims across the world, the number of casualties reached at least 525 (203 deaths, 322 injuries).

Islamic terrorists killed about 20 people and injured another 30 each day on average since the beginning of Ramadan. At least 52 attacks have taken place so far during the holy month. Many jihadists believe it is exceptionally heroic and Allah especially rewards ?martyrdom? during the sacred month.

Quote
Breitbart News primarily gleans its tally from the Religion of Peace website in coordination with news and government reports. Given that news outlets and governments fail to report many of the terrorist attacks in real time, the casualty total for the first ten days is subject to change.


Jihadist groups and other Islamists are known to urge
their members and supporters to engage in jihad on Ramadan.

Frenchman commits suicide at Mecca's Grand Mosque
By Afp
Published: 09:33 EDT, 9 June 2018 | Updated: 11:33 EDT, 9 June 2018

A Frenchman has committed suicide
by throwing himself off the roof of the Grand Mosque in Islam's holiest city of Mecca, Saudi and French officials said Saturday.

"A foreigner threw himself from the roof of the Grand Mosque in Mecca" to the courtyard below, "resulting in his instant death", Saudi police told the official SPA news agency.

A French foreign ministry official told AFP in Paris that the dead man was French but gave no further details.

The rare act was not the first of its kind to take place in Mecca, the holiest city in Islam -- which, like other monotheistic religions, prohibits suicide.

The body was transported to hospital, with an investigation underway "to determine the victim's identity, what led to the act and how he was able to commit it despite the existence of a metal fence", SPA said.

Last year, a Saudi man tried to set himself on fire in front of the Kaaba -- the square stone building in the centre of the mosque compound -- but was stopped by security forces.

Ramadan Rage: Jihadists Have Killed, Injured 1,365 with One Week to Go
11 Jun 2018

Islamic terrorists have killed 605 people and maimed an additional 760 so far during the ongoing holiest month for Muslims, Ramadan, a Breitbart News count shows.

With about a week left in the holy month, casualties, including both deaths and injuries, have already reached 1,365.

This week?s count covers deaths and injuries at the hands of jihadists between the beginning of Ramadan on May 17 and June 10.

This year, the Taliban has proven to be the most prolific jihadist group in the world, carrying out more attacks that have killed and wounded more people than any other terrorist group during Ramadan.

Ramadan Day 28 thought for the day from my new book The History of Jihad: by the end of 1625, the English had lost a thousand ships to jihadi pirates, and the warriors of jihad from Morocco had gained a thousand English slaves. One of these slaves, Robert Adams, who was ransomed and returned to England, recounted that as a slave in Morocco he had been given only ?a littell coarse bread and water,? and lived in ?a dungion under ground, wher some 150 or 200 of us lay, altogether, having no comforte of the light, but a littell hole.? Adams recounted that he was ?every day beaten to make me turn Turk,? that is, convert to Islam.
