Al Qaeda Reveals Newest Terror Strategy: "Non-Arab" Women Suicide Bombers


Cross posted by Holger Awakens


This is a bit concerning, especially considering that the Obama administration couldn't handle identifying a muslim man on a terror alert list who had been in Yemen just previous to his planned suicide mission on Northwest flight #253...but al Qaeda in Yemen (al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula) has a plan to use "non Arab" females as their newest legion of suicide bombers designed to get through to targets in the West.

From the article at Times of India:


The Yemen-based al-Qaida group has formed a women's brigade of "non Arab" suicide bombers as part of its new tactic to attack western targets, anti-terror experts said.

It was "inevitable" that al-Qaida would eventually turn to using women with a western appearance to carry out suicide attacks. Airliners and all forms of transport could be targeted as well as sports stadium, ports and power stations, the Daily Telegraph reported quoting security Officials. The women, who may have a "non Arab" appearance and be travelling on Western passports, have been prepared for their missions by the Yemeni group. US law enforcement agents have been told to be on the lookout for female suicide bombers who may attempt to enter the country.
And by the way, for those of you out there who still subscribe to this ridiculous idea of "moderate muslims", I'd ask you this...wouldn't these "western" women, now recruited as suicide bombers, have been considered as "moderates" up until this point? I've said it time and time again, you cannot be a muslim without supporting jihad. It's as simple as that. It's in the book, baby.

So, as usual, as the Western multiculturalists have stalled all plans to successfully profile would be terrorists, the likes of al Qaeda are already a step ahead of us in adapting themselves to a new strategy. We saw this type of on-the-run tactical changes in Iraq when al Qaeda in Iraq shifted from using men as suicide bombers to using men dressed in burqas to using women and then finally using children.

As far as I am concerned on this terror front, the only proven method of stopping these terror attacks from coming to America and western Europe has been to get in their faces in their own backyard. Once we had gone to Afghanistan and totally disrupted al Qaeda's planning organization there and sent them scurrying to Pakistan...where they never were able to band together sufficiently, only then did we see the attack planning shot to hell and the number of attacks reduced.

So now, we have the "new" Afghanistan, being Yemen. And as long as the likes of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula are left alone to plot these terror attacks, the more likely those attacks will occur and the more likely at least one will succeed. But, of course, we now live under leadership in America who is deadset againt offensive tactics against al Qaeda - the new plan of unclenching fists and minimizing the threat is thought to win over the terrorists to our side. Yeah, right. The only way you are going to stop these animals is by blowing them up in their compounds, their apartments, their hotels BEFORE they don the suicide belt or the explosive bras and underwear. You know, it's sometimes called...."fight fire with fire."



Al-Qaida prepares 'non-Arab' women suicide bombers

NEW YORK: The Yemen-based al-Qaida group has formed a women's brigade of "non Arab" suicide bombers as part of its new tactic to attack western targets, anti-terror experts said.

It was "inevitable" that al-Qaida would eventually turn to using women with a western appearance to carry out suicide attacks.

Airliners and all forms of transport could be targeted as well as sports stadium, ports and power stations, the Daily Telegraph reported quoting security Officials.

The women, who may have a "non Arab" appearance and be travelling on Western passports, have been prepared for their missions by the Yemeni group.

US law enforcement agents have been told to be on the lookout for female suicide bombers who may attempt to enter the country.

At least two are believed to be connected to al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula which has been accused of sending underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab who tried unsuccessfully to explode a transatlantic airliner over Detroit last month.

Details of women suicide bombers emerged hours after British intelligence officials raised the state of terror threat on Britain to "severe" amid fears that al-Qaida was planning a wave of attacks against western targets.

Terror experts within the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre, a unit of London-based MI5, now believe that an attack against the UK is "highly likely", the daily said.

Richard Clarke, a former chief White House counter-terrorism adviser, said: "They have trained women.

"There are others who are still out there who have been trained and who are clean skins - that means people who we do not have a record of, people who may not look like al-Qaida terrorists, who may not be Arabs, and may not be men."

A US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations report also revealed that around 70 American citizens, some ex-convicts, have disappeared into Yemen and Somalia and pose a Jihadist threat to the US.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown warned earlier this week that "a number of terrorist cells are actively trying to attack Britain and other countries."

Brown said the failed attack over Detroit signalled "the first operation mounted outside Arabia by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula".

He also talked about the increased threat from Somalia in east Africa and the Sahel in West Africa, adding that there would be a greater degree of intelligence sharing with foreign countries.

Profiling has failed us; we don’t need profiling to identify Individuals like the Christmas-Day Bomber or the Fort Hood Shooter! There is a better solution!

Virtually all media outlets are discussing whether we should be profiling all Arab Muslims; I will in the one-page explain why we don’t need profiling. Over 15 years ago, we at the Center for Aggression Management developed an easily-applied, measurable and culturally-neutral body language and behavior indicators exhibited by people who intend to perpetrate a terrorist act. This unique methodology utilizes proven research from the fields of psychology, medicine and law enforcement which, when joined together, identify clear, easily-used physiologically-based characteristics of individuals who are about to engage in terrorist activities in time to prevent their Moment of Commitment.

The Problem
Since the foiled terrorist attack by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian national on Northwest Flight 253 to Detroit, the President has repeatedly stated that there has been a systemic failure as he reiterates his commitment to fill this gap in our security. This incident, like the Fort Hood shooting, exemplifies why our government must apply every valid preventative approach to identify a potential terrorist.

The myriad methods to identify a terrorist, whether “no-fly list,” “explosive and weapons detection,” mental illness based approaches, “profiling” or “deception detection” - all continue to fail us. Furthermore, the development of deception detection training at Boston Logan Airport demonstrated that the Israeli methods of interrogation will not work in the United States.

All media outlets are discussing the need for profiling of Muslim Arabs, but profiling does not work for the following three reasons:

1. In practice, ethnic profiling tells us that within a certain group of people there is a higher probability for a terrorist; it does not tell us who the next terrorist is!

2. Ethnic profiling is contrary to the value our society places on diversity and freedom from discrimination based on racial, ethnic, religious, age and/or gender based criteria. If we use profiling it will diminish our position among the majority of affected citizens who support us as a beacon of freedom and liberty.

3. By narrowing our field of vision, profiling can lead to the consequence of letting terrorists go undetected, because the terrorist may not be part of any known “profile worthy” group – e.g., the Oklahoma City bomber, Timothy McVeigh

The Solution
Our unique methodology for screening passengers can easily discern (independently of race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, age, and gender) the defining characteristics of human beings who are about to engage in terrorist acts.

The question is when will our government use true “hostile intent” through the “continuum of aggressive behavior” to identify potential terrorists? Only when observers focus specifically on “aggressive behavior” do the objective and culturally neutral signs of “aggression” clearly stand out, providing the opportunity to prevent these violent encounters. This method will not only make all citizens safer, but will also pass the inevitable test of legal defensibility given probable action by the ACLU.

As our Government analyzes what went wrong regarding Abdulmatallab’s entrance into the United States, you can be assured that Al Qaeda is also analyzing how their plans went wrong. Who do you think will figure it out first . . . ?
