NATO Begins Naval Drills Near Russia

Capture

One of largest war games since the Cold War

Ukraine is hosting naval military exercise in the Black Sea with NATO forces, involving 2,500 troops and some 150 military vehicles, from warships and helicopters to armored cars.

The host nation of Sea Breeze 2015 has deployed 1,000 troops, nine warships and eight aircraft for the drill. The US has sent 1,000 troops as well as five warships, two submarines and six aircraft.

The remaining 500 troops, six warships, three submarines and six aircraft were provided by Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Italy, Romania, Turkey, the UK and the non-NATO nations Moldova and Sweden.

“The exercise is meant to boost trust and security in the region, [and to increase] the compatibility between the Ukrainian Navy and the navies of NATO members and partner countries,” the Ukrainian Defense Ministry said in a statement.

Sea Breeze is held in Ukraine’s Odessa and Nikolaevsk region not far from Russia’s Crimea, which Kiev and its foreign sponsors consider to be Ukrainian. It will last till mid-September. Ukraine will participating in a total of 11 NATO drills in 2015.

NATO is also currently conducting another war game, called Swift Response, in Germany, Italy, Bulgaria and Romania. It is one of the largest such events since the Cold War and is planned to last until September 13. A separate exercise, called Simple Strike, is under way in the Baltic.

Capture

Russia, which calls NATO exercises in Europe provocative, has just completed a joint naval drill with China, called Naval Cooperation. It was held in the Far East and has been described as unprecedented in scale.

US to pull Patriot anti-air missiles from Turkey

The US has followed in Germany’s footsteps, announcing that it will not be renewing its Patriot defense system in Turkey once it expires in October. The anti-air missile units will be shipped home for upgrades.

The information was released in a joint statement by Washington and Ankara.

“The United States has informed the Turkish government that the US deployment of Patriot air and missile defense units in Turkey which expires in October will not be renewed beyond the end of the current rotation,” said the message posted on the US Embassy in Turkey’s website.

The statement added that the units will be sent back to the US to be upgraded. “They will be redeployed to the United States for critical modernization upgrades that will ensure the US missile defense force remains capable of countering evolving global threats and protecting Allies and partners – including Turkey. This decision follows a US review of global missile defense posture.”

The decision was made a day after fellow NATO member Germany announced the withdrawal of its own missile defense systems from Turkey.

Germany cited a “low ballistic missile threat,” as well as the “high costs of the mission,” as reasons for the pull out.

The NATO allies deployed the air-defense systems in Turkey in 2013 after Ankara requested them to counter potential attacks from Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces in Syria.

The US has stressed that Turkey’s safety is still a concern, and it is ready to redeploy the defense systems if need be.“The United States and Turkey are consulting on possible other steps that we can take bilaterally to reinforce Turkey’s security.”

The West and Turkey have disagreed on the purpose and extent of military cooperation in the region. Turkey wants efforts to focus on toppling the Assad regime in Damascus, while the West’s priority is fighting the increasing threat presented by Islamic State (IS, previously ISIS/ISIL).

At the same time, the US has been attempting to train “moderate” rebels in Syria, who are currently fighting both Assad and jihadist groups like IS. With Washington recently stepping up its “Assad-must-go” rhetoric, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov warned that, in reality, the only groups that would potentially replace the Syrian government are made up of Islamic terrorists.

“I would not want any powerful state involved in attempts to solve the Syrian crisis to believe that Assad issue may be solved militarily, because the only way of such a military solution is the seizure of power [in Syria] by Islamic State and other terrorists,” Lavrov said at the beginning of August. “I don’t think anybody wants that.”

Ankara, once an ally of Syria, has become a vocal supporter of the opposition forces fighting to oust Assad. It has even been accused of supporting jihadi fighters coming into Turkey from other countries around the world in hopes of crossing into Syria to join IS or other rebel groups. Ankara has denied these allegations.

Meanwhile, Turkey has intensified its attacks on Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militants based in northern Iraq, blaming the group for a series of killings targeting police officers and soldiers.

Kurdish insurgents are demanding an independent Kurdistan or greater autonomy. PKK was founded in 1978 and has been clashing with Turkish security forces ever since. The conflict escalated at the end of July after dozens of police and military personnel were killed in Turkey. Ankara blamed the Kurdish militant group for the attacks.

However, it is unclear whether the US’ decision to withdraw the defense missile system had anything to do with this escalation.

A senior Pentagon official has questioned Turkey’s commitment to the anti-IS coalition, suspecting that Ankara is using its position to move against the Kurds, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“It’s clear that ISIL was a hook. Turkey wanted to move against the PKK, but it needed a hook,” the US newspaper quoted a military official as saying.

PARIS TURNING SCHOOLS, HOTELS INTO HOUSING FOR MIGRANTS

Deporting migrant to conflict zones would violate international human rights conventions

BY MAGGY DONALDSON

PARIS (AP) — Before the Taliban forced him to flee Afghanistan, Younis exported flowers to the United Arab Emirates and China.

The 30-year-old crossed Iran, Turkey and much of Europe before arriving in Paris a month ago, a brutal journey that left him with a discolored lesion on his ankle and a swollen leg. After weeks living on the banks of the Seine, Younis – who gave only his first name because his asylum application is still being processed – now sleeps in a former Paris high school that has been empty for four years, one of about 200 migrants living there.

Paris is turning a blind eye to humanitarian groups converting abandoned public buildings like the school into migrant centers, recognizing that the 1,000 official emergency housing spots Paris has created since June are not enough to shelter all migrants left without a roof, Paris’ deputy mayor, Bruno Julliard, told French radio.

The school’s classrooms are lined with sleeping bags atop makeshift cardboard mattresses. Migrants drink instant coffee and eat goulash concocted from donated ingredients. It’s bare-bones, but migrants, activists and many city officials agree it’s better than being on the streets.

The asphalt courtyard echoes with myriad languages as migrants kick soccer balls, play cards, or paint murals on the school’s peeling walls. Younis studies, writing French in meticulous cursive next to translations in his native Dari. The alphabet is different and the sounds are foreign, but he said the real challenge is that “I don’t have a job or a place to stay, I can’t read, I can’t focus.”

Learning French is his first effort toward integration. Younis emphasizes that he is here out of necessity, not because he wants handouts. “I’m not poor,” he said. “I like my country. I lived with my family. If I didn’t have to leave, I would live in Afghanistan.”

France has approximately 25,000 beds designated for asylum seekers, a number far short of the needs of the nearly 70,000 who applied for asylum in the country last year, part of what Julliard called the “unprecedented migrant crisis” facing Europe.

He said allowing migrants to stay in empty buildings is a “pragmatic” way to lodge people France cannot send back home, because deporting them to conflict zones would violate international human rights conventions.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve announced in June that France would create 11,000 new housing centers for asylum seekers by next year. But Paris, in partnership with the national government, “needs to do more,” Julliard said. That’s why the city is allowing migrants to stay in city property like the former school, at least for now.

A former hotel in southern Paris also took in approximately 200 migrants last week. A variety of aid groups work together to manage these stopgap centers.

Camille Arrignon, 23, teaches the French classes Younis attends. She said migrants need more than a room; shelters should include French instruction, legal help and health care access. “I want to defend them not because of politics,” she said, “but because they are humans. As humans, they have the right to a place to stay.”

US DEPLOYING 6 FIGHTER JETS TO TURKEY TO FIGHT ISIS

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 4.16.14 PM

Ankara has asked the US to establish a no-fly zone over Syria and a “security zone” along the Turkish border
The US Mission to NATO has confirmed that Washington is deploying six F-16 Fighting Falcon jets to Turkey. They are heading to the Incirlik Air Base in the south of the country to help NATO in their fight against Islamic State.

The US representatives to the alliance made the statement in a message published on their Twitter feed. Aside from the six fighter jets, two other military aircraft will be travelling to Turkey from an undisclosed location in Europe.

The Anadolu Agency reports that the contingent includes a C-5 transport plane plus a KC-135 refueling aircraft.

Around 300 airmen from the 31st Fighter Wing are also being sent to Turkey, to help support Operation Inherent Resolve, according to the US military website Stripes.

Air Force officials have not said how long the fighter jets will remain at the Incirlik Air Base, or whether more planes would be sent to Turkey to support the mission against Islamic State.

The US had previously only used the Incirlik Air Base, which is near the southern city of Adana, for unmanned reconnaissance missions.

Sunday annoucement follows a decision by Ankara to allow the US to use the airbase near the Syrian border, to conduct airstrikes against Islamic State (IS). The proximity of the base means that US planes can reach IS targets in only 30 minutes.

On Wednesday, a spokesman for the Pentagon confirmed an unmanned drone was launched from Incirlik and  that it hit a number of targets near Raqqa, which is IS’s stronghold in Syria. He also said preparations were underway for strikes inside Syria by manned US warplanes, Reuters reported.

As part of our agreement with the US, we have made progress regarding the opening up of our bases, particularly Incirlik,” Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu earlier told state broadcaster TRT, as cited by Reuters.

Turkey had been against the US and NATO using airbases in the country to conduct airstrikes against Islamic State.

However, Ankara made a sudden U-turn. In return for Washington’s use of Incirlik, Ankara has asked the US to establish a no-fly zone over Syria and a “security zone” along the Turkish border, according to Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc, who outlined the deal in July.

The attack by an Islamic State suicide bomber in July, which killed 32 people and injured more than 100, was the main reason for Ankara’s U-turn. It was the first time that IS had conducted an attack on Turkish soil. The group struck a cultural center in the mainly Kurdish border town of Suruc.

PAPER: ISIS set up stronghold in heart of Europe as terrorists secretly buy land near isolated village…

BY PATRICK HILL, ED WIGHT

Security services think the area in Bosnia is used for ISIS training camps and could be a base for devastating terror attacks on the West

Terrorists are secretly buying land in an isolated village, surrounded by deep woodland.

Security services think the area in Bosnia is used for ISIS training camps and could be a base for devastating terror attacks on the West.

Crucially, the location gives IS a key strategic position due to its proximity to the Mediterranean which is used by extremists from Syria, Iraq and North Africa.

At least 12 ISIS fighters trained in the village of Osve have left for Syria in recent months and five are reported to be dead.

Terror expert Dzevad Galijasevic said: “From this village a large number of people went to Syria and are going constantly.

Heartlands: The ISIS stronghold is not mapped by GPS

“The chosen location of some of the properties is on a hill, where there is no possibility to approach without being seen. It is clear that the source of the terrorist threat is right there. It is a major threat.

“There is no one there who isn’t ready to respond to the summons to jihad.”

We visited the hilltop village 60 miles from Sarajevo and six miles from the town of Maglaj afternoon.

It is not mapped by GPS and is only accessible by steep and winding roads barely wide enough for cars to pass.

A number of houses there appear to have been abandoned or only half built and it is not overlooked by any other settlement.

A number of villagers wore Islamic-style clothing, including two women wearing burkas.

Our guide – our driver and translator – said we were being watched and it was too dangerous to photograph them.

Clearly worried, the dad-of-one said: “We should leave now – our presence here is beginning to cause suspicion. This is a beautiful place but is incredibly dangerous.

“You cannot underestimate the possible threat here. If they see the camera all hell will break loose.”

ISIS stronghold: Patrick Hill with sign of the village of Osve, where the terror group have a European base

It is understood that notorious ISIS supporter Harun Mehicevic is among fanatics who bought land in the area. He has purchased two hectares.

Mehicevic fled Bosnia during the 1990s Balkan wars and settled in Melbourne, Australia, where he is considered one of the country’s most dangerous men.

In one ranting sermon, he reportedly told an audience of potential recruits: “Allah will help the mujahideen (holy warriors) establish an Islamic State where Muslims can live with dignity and honour.”

Other known terrorists believed to have bought land in the village include Jasin Rizvic and Osman Kekic, who are both now fighting with ISIS in Syria.

Muslim leader Izet Hadzic – arrested by Bosnia’ and Herzegovina’s security service Sipa in a raid – is also understood to have property in the village, as have many others who have gone to fight in Syria and Iraq.

One villager told our investigators that locals fear the area is a “nest for terrorists”.

The man, who does not want to be named, said: “We regularly hear gunshots coming from the woods up there for long periods at a time. It happens every week.

“I don’t know what they are doing, whether it is target practice or something like that, but it happens regularly.

JOHN ALEVROYIANNIS Osve, Bosnia
Secluded: The ISIS village is surrounded by woodland

“It is really concerning to hear such notorious members of ISIS are buying land. They keep themselves to themselves but it is better not to ask questions.

“It worries me that I am bringing up my children here. Now could be time to move out but it is not so easy to sell.”

Bosnia is an ideal position for jihadis travelling illegally from Syria to Greece, via Turkey, and then through Macedonia and Serbia.

Guns and other weapons are easier to obtain in Bosnia than in other parts of Europe due to illegal ownership following the conflicts of the 1990s.

Five months ago, anti-terror cops raided the village of Gornja Maoca in the north of the country following reports of houses flying the ISIS flag.

The area is home to followers of the strict Sunni Islam Wahhabi movement. It has been raided by police several times over the past decade due to suspected links with radical groups.

A report on jihadism in Bosnia said: “Returning foreign fighters from Syria and Iraq – battle-hardened, skilled in handling arms and explosives, and ideologically radicalised – pose a direct threat not only to the security of Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also of the region and beyond.”

JOHN ALEVROYIANNIS Osve, Bosnia

The report, The Lure of the Syrian War: The Foreign Fighters’ Bosnian Contingent, said that between 2013 and 2014, 156 Bosnian men and 36 women travelled to Syria, taking 25 children with them.

It said 48 men and three women had officially returned by last January.

The authors, Sarajevo University associate political science professor Vlado Azinovic and Islamic theologian Muhamed Jusic, also found that Bosnia was ill-prepared to deal with the threat.

The report said: “There is a lack of co-ordination between local law-enforcement agencies on (foreign fighter) issues.”

Kristina Jozic of security service Sipa said: “The return of individuals participating in the conflict in Syria, fighting with ISIS, is undoubtedly a security challenge and a threat, the extent of which is hard to determine.”

She said: “Sipa continuously performs checks of all allegations that can be linked to terrorist activities in any way, whether that is financing, recruiting or other activities related to terrorism.”

She added that the village is under surveillance following a police raid in May.

Director of the Centre for Security Studies in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo, Armin Krzalic, said: “Bosnians who went to fight for Islamic State will be treated as a threat to security upon their return whether they have land here or not.”

EXCLUSIVE: A Compilation Of Islamic Terrorist Quotes… Every American Needs To See This

Screen Shot 2015-07-02 at 8.56.42 AM

BY DEAN JAMES

This is an excellent compilation of quotes from terrorists around the world. Aside from pursuing mass murder plots against innocent populations in every corner of the planet, Islamic terrorists have one other thing in common:

They credit their motivation and success to religion.

This distinguishes Islamic terrorism from mere criminal activity, and it is part of what makes Islam so very, very different from other religions.

Many people would prefer to bury their heads in the sand or look for ways to recast Islamic terror to fit their own political agenda, but the fact is that violent Muslims are quite explicit about the religious certainty that compels and justifies their actions.

The teachings and history of Islam that explain the violence are discussed elsewhere on this site. Here we just want to show that, as far as Islamic terrorists are concerned, their acts are done specifically in the name of Allah and for the cause of Islam and Islamic rule… across the globe.

“I am one of the servants of Allah. We do our duty of fighting for the sake of the religion of Allah. It is also our duty to send a call to all the people of the world to enjoy this great light and to embrace Islam and experience the happiness in Islam. Our primary mission is nothing but the furthering of this religion.” – Osama bin Laden, May 1998

Afghanistan

“In the name of Allah the Avenger, I swear on the holy book to perform my sacred duty as a soldier of Islam in this Jihad to restore to this world the light of divine justice… Allah demands no less. For to die in the cause is to be sent immediately to paradise.”

A Taliban official, explaining why the group is violent.

Algeria

“But the coming Islamic caliphate country will not rise except at the hands of the fighting sect who raises the flag of Allah and Jihad.”

Statement from the Salafi terrorist group, one of several fundamentalist cells responsible for the slaughter of 150,000 men women and children in the 1990’s.

“Our Jihad consists of killing and dispersing all those who fight against Allah and his Prophet.”

“Throat-slitting and murder until the power is Allah’s!”

“The notion of the sovereignty of the people is anti-Islamic. Only Allah is sovereign.”

Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, the leader of the Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist organization.

Yes! We – the terrorists of India – The Indian Mujahadeen, – the militia of Islam whose each and every Mujahid belongs to this very soil of India – have returned, to execute the compulsion of Allah:

“Fight them (the disbelievers), Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace, and give you victory over them and He will heal the hearts of those who believe.” (Qur’an 9:14).

Here we begin … raising the illustrious banner of Jihad against the Hindus and all those who fight and resist us…

All Praise and Glory be to Allah, Who Alone Helps His slaves, Who Alone Fulfils His Promise, and Who Alone Defeats the enemy….

While hoping for the Help and Victory from Allah we declare that such and more severe attacks shall continue irrespective of what the blamers blame us for.

The hosts (of the Kafir) will all be routed and will turn and flee. [Qur’an 54: 45].

We ask Allah to forgive us and Have Mercy on us and Aid us to conquer the unbelievers and Guide us to raise His Word and degrade His enemies with His Will Alone.

And peace be upon His Messenger, and all those who follow the Guidance.

The Indian Mujahideen, claiming credit for a brutal series of bombings that left dozens of civilians dead and hundreds more in agony.

Iraq (Sunni)

“There is no doubt that Allah commanded us to strike the Kuffar (unbelievers), kill them, and fight them by all means necessary to achieve the goal.
