ISIS Claims Responsibility For First US Attack

Islamic State fighters have claimed responsibility for the attempted shooting at a Texas anti-Islam event on Sunday night, in what is thought to be the first such attack on American soil.

The gunmen attempted to attack a meeting in Garland, near Dallas, where participants drew cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.

Organisers knew that the event would be provocative, and it had caused a stir among extremists – who ten days before the attacks called for a Charlie Hebdo-style shooting.

One of the suspects was identified by ABC News as Elton Simpson, an Arizona man who was previously the subject of a terror investigation, citing a senior FBI official.

Police on Monday morning raided the Phoenix home of one of the suspected gunmen, FBI officials told CNN.

A week before Sunday’s shooting, the Transport Security Administration warned of an imminent attack.

The essence of the warning, according to a source speaking to The Intercept, is that “ISIS plans an attack on US soil.”

The Texas attackers have not been named, but one of the men thought to be behind the attack – going by the Twitter handle @atawaakul and the name “Shariah is Light” – tweeted his support for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) 15 minutes before the shooting.

His Twitter photo shows Anwar Al-Awlaki, the American-born leader of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), who was killed in a US drone strike in 2011.

He states that he has “given bay’ah” – sworn an oath of allegiance – to Amirul Mu’mineen, a title which is given in the Koran to the prince of the caliphs. Supporters of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of Isil, refer to him as Amirul Mu’mineen.


News of the shooting broke 15 minutes after the tweet was sent, at around 6.50pm.

The account has now been shut down, as has one which @atawaakul recommended, in his final tweet, that his supporters follow.

Other tweets grabbed before the account was shut down suggested the individual behind the account was a recent convert. He made statements such as: “I don’t know Arabic” and “my fam didn’t trip when I became a Muslim”.

He and one other man drove to the Curtis Culwell Center, an indoor arena in Garland, northeast of Dallas, on Sunday evening. At the time an event organised by the controversial American Freedom Defense Initiative was being held, which included a $10,000 prize for the best cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed. Geert Wilders, the far-Right Dutch politician and anti-Islamic campaigner who is on an al-Qaeda hit list, was among the speakers at the event.

Texas police shot dead the two gunmen in the car park before they could begin their attack. One of the suspects, after being initially wounded by police gunfire, was seen reaching for a backpack and was shot again and killed, said Douglas Athas, mayor of Garland.

One security guard was shot in the leg, but released from hospital hours later.

And following the thwarted attack, Isil supporters claimed that the two gunmen were acting on behalf of their group.

The jihadist “Abu Hussain AlBritani,” – who the gunman recommended to follow in his final tweet – tweeted that “two of our brothers just opened fire at the Prophet Muhammad art exhibition in Texas,” and remarked: “They thought they was safe in Texas from the soldiers of the Islamic State.”

The jihadist behind the Twitter account is thought to be British Isil fighter Junaid Hussain, from Birmingham, who is believed to have travelled to Isil territory in June last year.

And ten days ago, the jihadi monitoring group SITE said that extremists were already calling for action against the Texas event.

On April 23, “Mujahid Miski,” believed to be account of Mohamed Abdullahi Hassan, an American jihadist reportedly fighting in Somalia, tweeted about the drawing contest.

“The brothers from the Charlie hebdo attack did their part. It’s time for brothers in the #US to do their part.”

He then followed up by posting pictures of US jihadists Zakaria Maruf, Farah Mohamed Beledi, and French jihadi Amedy Coulibaly, who was one of the three Paris terrorists in the January attacks.

“If only we had men like these brothers in the #States, our beloved Muhammad would not have been drawn,” Miski said.

Bloggers are more dangerous to US Government than ISIS

News continues to become more and more bizarre – “bloggers” on the same level as ISIS (more on them later)??

Ed Royce who is currently on California’s 39th congressional district asks Liz Wahl, former news presenter at RT news the similarity between ISIS and “conspiracy bloggers”. They both reinforced each others perception on the current situation in Ukraine as well as ISIS. Liz Wahl asserted that these bloggers are pure misinformation and can be equated to ISIS as in their methods of open communication (the Internet) and gathering in large numbers (because of the Internet) demonstrate the definitive proof of this analysis. Royce, later agrees with Wahl, but also claims that theorists cite violence, with a few “billion” views on YouTube for a thesis on their views.

At the time of writing this, a mere month has passed since the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has released their “domestic terrorist list” via the Southern Poverty Law Center. We Are Change was on that list beside neo-nazis, with Luke Rudkowski having an entire profile dedicated to him. Those who know our content and integrity will have a hearty laugh at the action, however this demonstrates how the current power structure views “alternative” news – it worries them. All the while, people such as Hillary Clinton and the ever “honorable” Henry Kissinger walk free with no justice brought to them for their innumerable crimes.

The video below is what you came to see:

The “likes” speak for themselves on the video’s YouTube page – the people do not agree with the comparison. If only these instances were isolated incidences, but they are not; the examples of the establishment’s war on alternative news is staggering. From the US media calling out Russia Today (RT News) as “slick propaganda“, websites such as being targeted by DARPA dominated Google and of course We Are Change being openly censored by Google as well.
There are unfortunately other examples, but the point is that our alternative perception to the official narrative is spawning obvious hostilities.

What is odd to me, is when you take into account the bigger picture here, the very subject of ISIS takes upon itself a new light. WRC has proven that the organization that goes under the names of ISIS, ISIL, Islamic State and IS could exist if it were not for the indirect and direct influence of foreign governments. What an interesting display we have before us!

So what do we do? I am at the agreement of we continue to blast our cannons of alternative perception, never ceasing. My personal view is that we are at the cusp of something amazing in the human experience – we are on the verge of practically birthing a new world. The instruments of alternative information and new viewpoints is crucial to reawakening the human spirit of the masses.

The final video below was done by Luke Rudkowski and it sends a positive and reviting message you will not find anywhere else – enjoy:

RT News: “US fights ISIS…while aiding ISIS”

[WRC has covered this subject months ago – video at the bottom is prime example]

As the war against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) rages on, the US has stepped up its air campaign, combining destructive bombs with anti-ISIS leaflets.

But while US propaganda efforts are ostensibly aimed at disrupting ISIS recruitment, overall US involvement has yielded mixed results at best. (more…)

Does the British state fear dissidents more than terrorists?


By WRC contributor Harry J. Bentham

The UK government may be the only one supporting heavy-handed US-led counterterrorism strategies more eagerly than the US itself. This can be seen in its consistent support for the indiscriminate monitoring of British citizens, to protect the state from the apparent radicalization of the British people. A radicalization that manifests most dangerously in people who say the state is incompetent at providing for our security.

It would have been better if this was only a hyperbolic claim, but the evidence suggests otherwise. The British government now seems to consider any criticism of its security services as something tantamount to treason or terrorist incitement, and the only thing protecting us from repression by the Cameron government is its incompetence and inefficiency. Based on a number of comments from officials since the spread of the Islamic State militant group and the military intervention against it, it is apparent that government ministers want to equate their critics in civil society with terrorists.
