Arson Jihad: Muslim Group setting Europe-Wide Forest Fires

24 Comments

The arson strategy is recommended in al qaeda handbooks, so this is not surprising. Has the Obama administration looked into the arsonists and/or their motives in the recent spate of forest fires in America? Or is this just another epic national security failure by the pro-jihadist White House? If Obama would cover up an Islamic terror attack on 9/11/12, arson would be child's play.

"Al-Qaeda blamed for Europe-wide forest fires" The Telegraph
Al-Qaeda has been blamed for a recent series of forest fires across Europe, as
the head of Russia's Federal Security Service claimed they were set by
arsonists as part of the group's low-cost attack strategy.
Deadly fires have swept through forest land in EU countries such as Portugal and Spain.

"One should note that setting fires to forests in the countries of the
European Union is a new tendency in al-Qaeda's
strategy of a 'thousand cuts'," Alexander Bortnikov said, according to
state news agency RIA Novosti, at a meeting of heads of security agencies.

"This method allows (al-Qaeda) to inflict significant economic and moral
damage without serious preliminary preparations, technical equipment or
significant expenses."

In linking al-Qaeda to the deadly wildfires, Mr Bortnikov pointed to calls to
launch a "forest jihad" by various extremist websites which he
said also publish detailed instructions about how and where to best carry
out arson.

He said it was very difficult for special services to find and prosecute such
arsonists.

Deadly fires have swept through forest land in EU countries such as Portugal
and Spain over the past few months, killing scores of people and forcing
thousands to evacuate.

In its continuing campaign against the West, al-Qaeda has vowed to "bleed
the enemy to death" by resorting to inexpensive, low-scale attacks it
refers to as a "strategy of a thousand cuts".

  1. What IS interesting is the fires that have been going on around this country, the press/news HAS NOT said what has started them. Usually it is lighting that does most of the fire starting, but this year the press has not even blamed that on the starting of the fires. Very interesting for sure.

  2. Wherever Muslims go they create deserts. Geographical, economical, societal and cultural.
    Islam, at best the mafia with a dodgy deity, at worst communism with a viscious deity.

  3. All I can say is wow. What a low primitive class of people Muslims are. Now they are wiping out herds of native animals, flocks of birds and mammals that depend on what little is left of wilderness. If I were of a liberal and tolerant mindset this would be the last straw for me. Instead I am a conservative Republican who reached the last straw 10 years ago. So attacking nature is just one more in a long list of mind-boggling atrocities from that bunch. I’ve not heard of this tactic yet. Wow.

  4. This is an Islamic tactic… remember Israel was denuded of trees under the Islamists – reforestation did not occur until Israel became a nation.
    Islam is a destroyer.

  5. Seems that what they do to us is limited only by their ability. What we do to them is limited only by the fact that we are civilized. It seems like that is what they depend on. The fact that we are civilized and not willing to kill innocent children just to get one of them. But one day if they keep it up, we will decide that this planet just isn’t big enough for us and them too.

  6. The “death from a thousand cuts” concept is an important one.
    It’s even more insidious than as in examples such as wildfire arson, which is certainly their tactic.
    Muslim men, especially those who immigrate here, are everywhere in Western societies wreaking the social/sexual norms of their disgraceful countries of origin upon innocent, unsuspecting especially Christian women with devastating results for the women, their families and their would-be future good relationships. I’ve seen it happen. And the men always walk away without a word of protest because everyone is afraid to be seen as “racist” or insensitive to these poor purported “victims.” Jewish women — to their credit — are less vulnerable to such abuses because they have been warned by their culture and worldview. We all need to be more honest about the virtual 100 percent probability of failure of relationships between a Muslim man and a Christian woman.
    When looked at from a distance and over time, the immersion of Islam in our good Western societies looks like mayhem and decimation.

  7. Environmental warfare; where nature and natural resources are destroyed as an act of aggression or sabotage. That these European forest fires are originating from Islamic terrorists do not surprise me at all. Numerous times throughout history invading armies, insurgencies, rebel groups, etc; have done things like this to wreak havoc.
    Islamists have a history of committing acts that have caused horrific environmental damage. In the case of forest fires now affecting Europe, think of the potential losses if this continues. Economic losses not only if the forests are being utilized for the timber/paper industry; but natural areas used for recreation- hiking, camping, resorts, etc- bring in income; and they can’t do that when the land has been turned into smoldering ash. If the damage is severe enough then erosion, mudslides and the like can cause problems for water ways and have negative impacts on roads that are nearby. If the fires are not big enough to affect major airports, what about smaller airfields? Any planes (even small ones) changing flight paths or grounded because of this? Remember- ANY inconvenience in the daily routine of the west is what these sick twisted Islamists applaud.
    What of resort buildings, lodges, nature/science research stations or logging camps in these places? What of people’s private homes and vehicles? Were any civilians or firefighters killed or injured as a result of these fires? If there are no human casualties now, if these terrorist acts continue the chances of deaths increase. No deaths? What of hospitalizations for injuries from the fires directly, indirectly with injuries from evacuations or what of persons with respiratory health problems? Infants, children and the elderly who are near large fires many times have to seek medical care for smoke and ash inhalation or allergies.
    Any homes, apartments or vehicles not affected directly by the fire (ie being burned down); there is still the cleanup due to smoke and ash. Also, smoke and ash clogs electronics, engines and many other man-made things.
    Wildlife as well is affected of course. How many endangered species died in those blazes? Is fishing an economic/recreational draw for people in those regions? Smoke and ash have been known to clog streams, rivers, ponds and lakes; and the fish populations choked will float to the surface dead. Hey, then park rangers and fisheries biologists will have to re-stock, and the last I knew, this isn’t free.
    We see the above scenarios as end results with wildfires in the southwest USA regardless of how they were started. Accidents caused by campers, lightning strikes or criminal arsonists- out-of-control fires over large areas have negative consequences. To know that this is happening on purpose in Europe and Islamic terrorism is the cause- is absolutely repulsive.
    Finally, knowing what is going on Europe, I can’t help but wonder what ARE THE CAUSES of the rising rates of destructive fires that have affected America in the last decade. Even if none of the American fires were done by terrorists; with this getting in the news about Europe… you have to know the USA Islamadoodles who support violence now have some “new ideas.” Animal rights activists, environmentalists, conservation proponents- should all be speaking out about this, but sadly- I doubt that they will.

  8. Now you see why it was necessary for Ferdinand and Isabella to expelled ALL muslims from Spanish territory in the 15th century. There is no such thing as a “moderate” or “safe” muslim. And even if there were, how could he be recognized from the jihadis?
    Expulsion may eventually be the only safe solution for western countries.

  9. Alan: Well said. It’s a shock to the civilized Western mind with an understanding of history to contemplate mass expulsion.
    But we are truly in uncharted waters now in our relationship with the suddenly revolutionary Arab world. (see “Arab Spring,” ha!)
    In Los Angeles, where we already have literally millions of illegal Latino migrants — who are highly visible on the freeways and on the nightly news — we’re seeing more of the vile head scarves, which certainly portend ill, as they do everywhere else in the West the’ve appeared. It’s hard to imagine we won’t see civil disturbances and violence eventually because after all, that’s what Muslims do.

  10. In brief, wake up, America: arson is a weapon used by devout Muslims because such was sunnah of the Prophet.
    If you wish to believe otherwise do so; reality still stands.
    That weapon (arson), along with perhaps an unimaginable variety of a basket full of additional creative low-cost weapons that are used for attacks carried out by Muslims obeying Allah–AKA so-called “terrorist” hits–have been, more often than not, rampant here in our nation for, minimally, the last eight years.
    To the peril of yourself and your offspring believe otherwise if you choose to; Islam banks on your blindness to such realities.
    Willing blindness to reality notwithstanding, as long as such willingness prevails, losses here under our noses will continue to amass. So too the financial losses and death count secondary to such losses.
    Time to wake-up, America–I have been stating these facts for years. Pretending they are not so does not make them so. Only a fool believes–now or ever–we are fighting them over there so we do not have to fight them here.

  11. So, it has come to this. Destroying forests as jihad, they told us that and we didn’t listen. What is the matter with us? The enemy is in front of us telling us how they will destroy us and we do nothing. It is time for us to declare war on their jihad. No more immigrants from islamic countries to the free world. We must STOP it now. As a Canadian I revere our forests, our maple leaf flag shows us our love. If islamists can attack our forests, we need to fight back. Their children go to our schools, sing our songs, act like they belong, and then burn our cherished forests down? No more. I am asking everyone here to tell every government agency in whatever free world country you live in, to stop muslim/arab/ islamist/mid east immigration. NOW. Why are we importing enemies? Why? I’d like to add this: In a part of Ontario there is a nasty pakistani doctor and his hijab wife treating women with cancer in a disgusting vile way. Any complaints are met with how lucky we are to have him. Lucky? He makes every woman feel like sheit, his veiled wife says nothing. Lucky? We’d be lucky if he and his wife buggered off and Canadian women had a decent doctor. You are wondering how I tie this together. Canadian women with breast cancer need a sympathetic doctor, which this man is not. Canadians need to know that their health care provider is a good and decent doctor, who as he treats Canadian women with cancer with disrespect and is not secretly glad that Canadian forests are burning because of jihadis.

  12. The thought of a white Christian or Jewish woman seeing a Pakistani doctor with his veiled wife as an assistant is enough to make me want to throw up. It’s so outrageous to think that we’re doing this to ourselves by force-feeding political correctness and the HUGE LIE that, “we’re all the same.” And if we’re waiting for Muslims to have the decency to leave the places where they clearly don’t belong and indeed are causing harm with their presence — we will be waiting forever.

  13. What so many innocent (naive) Americans can’t understand is that Muslims — who we see as poor people from dirty Third World countries who are obviously beneath us — hold us — AMERICANS! — in utter contempt!
    It’s true! Believe it! These low-lifes who come here for relief and opportunity think we’re as low as animals compared with them.
    But there’s a catch — THEY NEVER SAY SO!

  14. They have talked about doing that here also.
    Keep your eyes peeled for muzzuloids where they don’t belong. Wait, they don’t belong anywhere in America.

  15. ” When OH when will America wake up??”
    About the same time the Jews of Khaybar did: when it is too dang late to save themselves and their children.
    Willingly, willingly, far too damn many of us refuse to believe Islam is what it is; so too, the adherents to it what they are.
    Thus, because like damn fools we fund and support so-called “Moderate Muslims” here and abroad with help, financing, blessing from both parties, as the “Moderates” use the traditions of “the Messenger of God” to advanced Islam.

    The Jews of Khaybar thought it improbable Muhammad and his raiders would attack their fortified towering fortresses of Khaybar; they were sadly proven wrong.
    Islamic history asserts (Sirah; al-Waqidi’s), God blinded the Jews of Khaybar with doubt; thus, came the morning, they woke with their hearts beating, finding Muhammad and his army in their yards.
    And the sad tell of that end is this: amongst them were only the imprisoned and the executed.

  16. Several years ago Autralia had the worst fires in our history, The Black Saturday fires…deliberately lit…..this has not been laid at Islams door officially but before those fires The Australian newspaper had run a story about Fire Jihad, and that muslims were being called upon all around the world , to remember the summer months to light fires, to destroy infrastucture, cause economic disaster, and lower morale of the Infidels…so I would not be surprised,,…Bushfires all around the Western world!!!

  17. Yea the left will respond only when there cats, dogs, trees, and water are in jeopardy but when it comes to slaughtering millions of humans who cares? Islam has been doing this for hundreds of years and not once do they admit it. Ask any Armenian.
