Gov’t Union: Obama’s Weak Immigration Policy Is Inviting An Attack Worse Than 9/11

President Barack Obama’s lax immigration policies are inviting another massive jihad attack similar to the 9/11 atrocity, says Kenneth Palinkas, president of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services employees’ union.

Obama’s deputies are “lessening the vetting of each and every alien who applies for permanent residency or citizenship in the U.S.,” Palinkas said in a statement Tuesday.


“By not scrutinizing each and every applicant to the fullest extent possible to ensure America’s security, we invite an even more catastrophic event than what occurred on 09/11/2001,” he said.

Obama’s rollback of security checks means that “it is more than likely that any attack from terrorists will come from within the borders of the U.S., and it is further likely that ISIS or Al Qaeda would try to launch these attacks by obtaining a visa or working with elements already here on visas,” he said.

Numerous legal immigrants have launched, or tried to launch, jihad attacks in the United States.

In April 2013, for example, two ethnic Chechen Muslim refugees detonated bombs at the Boston Marathon, killing three victims. They also killed a cop as they fled.

This month, three more migrants were arrested in Brooklyn for planning jihad attacks in the United States.

“Our current immigration system leaves us vulnerable to terrorist threats and terrorism in general by providing entry avenues for people sworn to destroy America… We must remain diligent and not continue lessening our guard against extremists who seek to destroy this nation,” Palinkas said.

“We must not govern based on politically correct clichés about relaxed immigration that only serve to weaken the country.”

The statement was released shortly before Sen. Jeff Sessions held his first hearing on immigration issues at the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest on Tuesday.

Sessions is a major advocate for reduced immigration, and was recently bumped from the top slot in the Senate’s budget committee.

The hearing is about the administration’s management of the USCIS agency.

‘Europe will face a 9/11 within two years’ – Colonel Gaddafi’s cousin

Colonel Gaddafi’s cousin predicts a “9/11 in Europe within two years,” as Islamic State militants join thousands of migrants beating a path to Europe. His warning comes as Home Secretary Theresa May says Britain’s terror threat is “grave and growing.”

Ahmed Gaddafi al-Dam, formerly one of Gadaffi’s most trusted security chiefs, estimates a minimum of 500,000 migrants will make their way from Libya to Europe in 2015, as the Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL] increases its foothold in the North African state.

“There are many terrorists among them, between 10 and 50 in every thousand,” he told the Mail Online.

“They are going all throughout Europe [sic]. Within one year, two years, you will have another September 11.”

The former security chief made the remarks in Cairo on Monday, during an interview with the newspaper. He has reportedly since fled.

Following his comments, Britain’s Home Secretary Theresa May said Britons continue to face the risk of a terror attack. She added everyone in the UK needs to play their part to help fight the spread of radicalization.

IS gaining ground in Libya

Considered alarmist by some, Gaddafi al-Dam’s warning will likely alarm Western governments.

Following the brutal massacre of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians by IS militants in Sirte, northern Libya, concern is mounting that instability in the region poses a risk to the West.

Militants linked to IS have made gains in Libya in recent times, and are thought to have conquered three towns, including Sirte.

Gadaffi’s cousin says the Islamic State in Libya could be in possession of over 6,000 barrels of uranium, previously guarded by the state’s armed forces.

“They are not stupid anymore. They know how to make money. They will try and sell it,” he added.

Colonel Gadaffi’s family has remained largely out of the media spotlight since the Libyan dictator’s death during the state’s 2011 revolution. Gadaffi’s passing marked the end of his 42-year reign as state leader.

Rival insurgents have battled for power ever since, ousting Libya’s internationally recognized rulers from the state’s capital and sparking fears of a full-blown civil war.

Last month, Britain’s ex-director of MI6 Sir John Sawers called for a debate about UK military intervention in Libya.

Sawers said the country has descended into “growing chaos” after Britain joined US airstrikes to bring down Gaddafi’s regime.

However, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has rejected calls for military intervention, insisting a political solution must be found to Libya’s struggle against the Islamic State.

Hammond stresses efforts to install a national unity government will help Libya in its struggle against terror groups.

A state of unrest

Libya has remained restless since the demise of its autocratic ruler in 2011. After the uprising, sharp political divisions surfaced in the country, yielding two opposing governments each of which runs its own institutions and armed forces.

The separate parliaments, located in the eastern city of Tobruk and Libya’s capital Tripoli, currently vie for supremacy.

Since Libya’s 2011 uprising, accompanied by NATO airstrikes, critics argue the state has been abandoned by the West and left without any foreign assistance to foster stability.

There has been no attempt to manage a transition to a new system of rule, as Western allies did in the case of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Following the release of a video depicting the brutal beheading of 21 Coptic Christians in Libya earlier this year, the Egyptian government launched airstrikes against IS targets in the region.

Libya has also appealed to the UN Security Council to lift its arm embargo, in a bid to counter threats from the Islamic State and other militants.N

ISIS militants trick mother into ‘eating her kidnapped son’

Islamic State brutes fed a distraught woman searching for her kidnapped son some meat and rice – and then told her she had just eaten her son, according to a British man who joined the fight against ISIS.
Yasir Abdulla, 36, of Yorkshire left his wife and four kids to battle the maniacal extremists in his Kurdish homeland, The Sun reported.
“I hate IS because of what happened to an old Kurdish woman from a nearby tribe,” he said. “Her son was captured by IS fighters and taken as a prisoner to Mosul. She was determined to find her son and went to IS headquarters and asked to see him.”
He said the thugs told her to rest after her long journey and offered her the food before taking her to her son.
“They brought her cups of tea and fed her a meal of cooked meat, rice and soup. She thought they were kind,” he said.“But they had killed him and chopped him up and after she finished the meal and asked to see her son they laughed and said, ‘You’ve just eaten him,’” Abdulla told The Sun.
Abdulla decided to take on the murderous group after they came within six miles of his home in Kurdistan.
He said he bought combat fatigues online and an assault rifle in his Kurdish hometown – then joined other volunteers on the front lines.
“We want to attack IS and drive them out forever but we can’t unless the Peshmerga and the Americans say we can,” he said, referring to the military forces of Iraqi Kurdistan.
Abdulla described the jihadists’ terror tactics, including slaughtering prisoners in bonfires.
“They dig a trench, put dry tree branches and leaves in there, set it alight and then throw prisoners on so they burn alive,” he said. “IS are very good at making people scared. If they make one person scared then that person will make another person scared and soon everyone is scared of IS.”
“But the Kurds are not scared of them. Someone has to stand and fight. We have got thousands of people in many villages and towns behind us. If we fall then all of those places fall, and that can’t happen.”
Yasir, who returned to the UK last week, remains confident and vows to return to Iraq to help the rebels defeat the fanatics.

Iraqi forces have once again sensationally charged that the US military is purposefully dropping weapons to terrorist militants in the western parts of the country, according to a report.

The Iranian Fars News Agency reports “A group of Iraqi popular forces known as Al-Hashad Al-Shabi shot down a US Army helicopter that was carrying weapons for the ISIL in the western parts of Al-Baqdadi region in Al-Anbar province” last week.

The report claims that the fighters posted a picture (see above) online of the downed chopper and the weapons that were recovered.

The claims comes on the heels of reports last week that the Iraq Army shot down two British planes also delivering weapons to the Islamic State.

“The Iraqi Parliament’s National Security and Defense Committee has access to the photos of both planes that are British and have crashed while they were carrying weapons for the ISIL,” Head of the committee Hakem al-Zameli said, according to the Arabic-language information center of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq.

Hakem al-Zameli, a senior Iraqi legislator, added that the current government in Baghdad is receiving daily reports from security forces in al-Anbar province about flights airdropping weapons to ISIS.

The reason for the drops, according to the legislator, is to prolong a chaotic situation in Anbar Province.

Last week, video was also released claiming to show a US Chinook helicopter dropping two boxes full of weapons for ISIS by flying at a low altitude in an extremist controlled area south of Fallujah. The footage is said to have been filmed by the Iraq-based Hezbollah Brigades.

There were even reports that some US helicopters landed in Fallujah, a main base of ISIS linked Takfiri militants in Iraq. Iraqi lawmakers have urged the government to open an investigation into the matter.

The claims of the US and the UK supplying weapons to ISIS extremists have now been ongoing for some time.

It is certainly evident that US made weapons have fallen into ISIS hands on multiple occasions.

“We have discovered weapons made in the US, European countries and Israel from the areas liberated from ISIL’s control in Al-Baqdadi region,” the al-Ahad news website quoted the head of the al-Anbar Provincial Council Khalaf Tarmouz as saying recently.

Weapons made in Europe and Israel were also discovered in Ramadi, Tarmouz said.

“The US drops weapons for the ISIL on the excuse of not knowing about the whereabouts of the ISIL positions and it is trying to distort the reality with its allegations,” he said.

Did Islamic State Just Promise to Kill Twitter Cofounder?

The radical group relies heavily on Twitter to wage its propagandistic and recruitment campaign.

Twitter has confirmed that the company’s security team is investigating a death threat apparently issued by the Islamic State against Jack Dorsey, who co-founded the microblogging service, and other Twitter employees for deleting accounts affiliated with the brutal Islamist group.
“We told you from the beginning it’s not your war, but you didn’t get it and kept closing our accounts on Twitter, but we always come back,” said a message posted on an anonymous online website that has been frequented by the Islamic State to spread its propaganda.

“But when our lions [brave men] come and take your breath, you will never come back to life,” the message added. The post was also accompanied by an image of Dorsey in the cross sights of a rifle.
The radical group relies heavily on Twitter and other online tools to wage its propagandistic and recruitment campaign. In the fall, as many as 45,000 Twitter accounts were part of a sophisticated network spreading Islamist content online.
The Islamic State’s network on Twitter has suffered a heavy blow since then. As many as 18,000 accounts affiliated with the militants were suspended in recent months in a virtual counteroffensive. However, these efforts will only be successful if Twitter does not back down under pressure.
