Leave it to Al Qaeda and Radical IslamicTerrorists to already cause disruption and concern for the upcoming Olympics. If it involves multiple countries celebrating together and large crowds of innocent people, you can bet Al Qaeda and these terrorists will be there. They enjoy targeting and killing innocent lives. That’s what these cowards and scumbags do.
Pro-Al Qaeda jihadis are issuing a series of directives ahead of next month’s Olympics urging their followers to carry out so-called ‘lone wolf’ attacks at the Rio Games, according to material obtained by The Foreign Desk.
In a list published on social media, jihadis are advised to target American, British, French and Israeli athletes with the notion that “One small knife attack against Americans/Israelis in these places will have bigger media effect than any other attacks anywhere else in sha Allah.”
“Your chance to take part in the global Jihad is here! Your chance to be a martyr is here!” the jihadis said, citing the easy process of obtaining visas for travel to Brazil as well as the wide availability of guns in “crime-ridden slums.”
Israeli athletes are further singled out.
“From amongst the worst enemies, the most famous enemies for general Muslims is to attack Israelis. As general Muslims all agree to it and it causes more popularity for the Mujahideen amongst the Muslims,” they state.
During the Summer Olympics of 1972, 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team were taken hostage by the Palestinian terror group Black September. They later died during a botched rescue attempt by West German authorities. A police officer was also killed.
Spectators are also legitimate targets for attackers who are advised to look for them in packed bars and clubs where drunken targets will be easy to find, but attacks should prioritize important leaders, ambassadors and officials, the list says.
Among the outlandish ideas, the list suggests poisoning food, using toy drones with small explosives and kidnapping Israelis and Americans to “free Muslim prisoners.”
They can also carry lubricating oil to pour on highways, the posts says, with sharp curves they hope will cause accidents and “see Israeli Jews flying with their vehicle by the will of Allah.”
Following the list’s publication, several supplemental posts have also been made, using the hashtag #RioLW or “Rio lone wolf.”
Jihadis are reminded to prepare a claim of responsibility, such as an email prior to the attack or a scheduled Facebook post.
How insane is THAT?!
Brazil’s federal police on Thursday arrested 10 Brazilians, allegedly part of an “amateur” group loyal to Islamic State, who authorities said were planning to commit terrorist acts during the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Police said two additional suspects had been taken into custody. It wasn’t clear whether they had been arrested.
Coming just two weeks ahead of the start of the Games, the arrests are certain to raise additional questions over Brazil’s security preparations and elevate concerns about the possibility of a terrorist attack in Rio, which is expected to attract 500,000 tourists and athletes, including an anticipated 200,000 U.S. citizens.
It also doesn’t help that our wonderful president and Clown-in-Chief released another former Guantanamo Bay detainee Abu Wa’el Dhiab, who was resettled in neighboring Uruguay and put the region on edge.
Thanks, Obama for adding to Rio’s problems. I guess if your “JV team” strikes in Rio, we have you to blame for playing a role in that too!
