Wolf Wisdom

Two Wolves

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a debate that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between 2 "wolves" inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy,sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

An example of how to succeed

.....Even now, the Muslim Council of Britain adamantly insists that Islam has nothing to do with the London attacks. It cites other motives — "segregation" and "alienation," for instance.
Look at the members of another religion--the Jews--and observe how they handled "segregation" and "alienation." Most of the Ellis Island immigrants of that religion lived in a totally segregated ghetto on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Did they kill people? Did they blow stuff up? No--they studied hard, worked long hours, started their own businesses and eventually reahed the pinnacle of success in law, medicine, science, business, and the arts. Of course, the rabbis weren't telling their congregations that their failures were someone else's fault, and that a "jihad" was their best bet to improve their lives. Those "hasidic" Jews who wished to keep their ancient traditions and way of life have been able to do so with minimal conflict with the more moderate believers of their own faith, or other faiths......

American Hiroshima

FROM JOSEPH FARAH'S G2 BULLETIN
Al-Qaida's U.S. nuclear targets
Captured documents, terrorists reveal bin Laden's preferred dates, places for 'American Hiroshima'

Al-Qaida's prime targets for launching nuclear terrorist attacks are the nine U.S. cities with the highest Jewish populations, according to captured leaders and documents.

As first revealed last week in Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin, the premium, online intelligence newsletter published by the founder of WND, Osama bin Laden is planning what he calls an "American Hiroshima," the ultimate terrorist attack on U.S. cities, using nuclear weapons already smuggled into the country across the Mexican border along with thousands of sleeper agents.


The series of attacks is designed to kill 4 million, destroy the economy and fundamentally alter the course of history.

At least two fully assembled and operational nuclear weapons are believed to be hidden in the United States already, according to G2 Bulletin intelligence sources and an upcoming book, "The al-Qaida Connection: International Terrorism, Organized Crime and the Coming Apocalypse," by former FBI consultant Paul L. Williams.

The cities chosen as optimal targets are New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Boston and Washington, D.C. New York and Washington top the preferred target list for al-Qaida leadership.

Bin Laden's goal, according to G2 Bulletin sources, is to launch one initial attack, followed by a second on another city to simulate the U.S. bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The optimal dates for the attacks are Aug. 6, the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing, Sept. 11 and May 14, the anniversary of the re-creation of the state of Israel in 1948. No specific year has been suggested, however, this Aug. 6 represents the 60th anniversary of the Hiroshima attack.

The captured terrorists and documents also suggest smaller attacks may take place on American soil before the nuclear incidents. They may include some involving automatic weapons at schools and shopping malls, but will not include any airplane hijackings. Why? Because bin Laden does not want any failed efforts to overshadow "the success of Sept. 11." There will also not be any attacks on U.S. nuclear power plants. The rationale? The nuclear power plants can act as force multipliers when the weapons of mass destruction are detonated.

Another requirement dictated from the top at al-Qaida is that the attacks take place in daylight, so that the whole world will be able to see the images of a mushroom cloud over an American city.

One of the sources for the information is Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the chief planner of the Sept. 11 attacks, who is now in U.S. custody.

As previously reported by G2 Bulletin, al-Qaida has obtained at least 40 nuclear weapons from the former Soviet Union – including suitcase nukes, nuclear mines, artillery shells and even some missile warheads. In addition, documents captured in Afghanistan show al-Qaida had plans to assemble its own nuclear weapons with fissile material it purchased on the black market.

U.S. military sources also say there is evidence to suggest al-Qaida is paying former Russian special forces "Spetznaz" troops to assist the terrorist group in locating nuclear weapons planted in the U.S. during the Cold War. Osama bin Laden's group is also paying nuclear scientists from Russia and Pakistan to maintain its existing nuclear arsenal and assemble additional weapons with the materials it has invested hundreds of millions in procuring over a period of 10 years. Al-Qaida sources indicate they would prefer to use Russian-made weapons for symbolic reasons.

The plans for the devastating nuclear attack on the U.S. have been under development for more than a decade. It is designed as a final deadly blow to the U.S., which is seen by al-Qaida and its allies as "the Great Satan."

At least half the nuclear weapons in the al-Qaida arsenal were obtained for cash from the Chechen terrorist allies.

But the most disturbing news is that high level U.S. officials now believe at least some of those weapons have been smuggled into the U.S. for use in the near future in major cities as part of this "American Hiroshima" plan.

According to Williams, former CIA Director George Tenet informed President Bush one month after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that at least two suitcase nukes had reached al-Qaida operatives in the U.S.

"Each suitcase weighed between 50 and 80 kilograms (approximately 110 to 176 pounds) and contained enough fissionable plutonium and uranium to produce an explosive yield in excess of two kilotons," wrote Williams. "One suitcase bore the serial number 9999 and the Russian manufacturing date of 1988. The design of the weapons, Tenet told the president, is simple. The plutonium and uranium are kept in separate compartments that are linked to a triggering mechanism that can be activated by a clock or a call from the cell phone."

According to the author, the news sent Bush "through the roof," prompting him to order his national security team to give nuclear terrorism priority over every other threat to America.

However, it is worth noting that Bush failed to translate this policy into securing the U.S.-Mexico border through which the nuclear weapons and al-Qaida operatives are believed to have passed with the help of the MS-13 smugglers. He did, however, order the building of underground bunkers away from major metropolitan areas for use by federal government managers following an attack.



Bin Laden, according to Williams, has nearly unlimited funds to spend on his nuclear terrorism plan because he has remained in control of the Afghanistan-produced heroin industry. Poppy production has greatly increased even while U.S. troops are occupying the country, he writes. Al-Qaida has developed close relations with the Albanian Mafia, which assists in the smuggling and sale of heroin throughout Europe and the U.S.

Some of that money is used to pay off the notorious MS-13 street gang between $30,000 and $50,000 for each sleeper agent smuggled into the U.S. from Mexico. The sleepers are also provided with phony identification, most often bogus matricula consular ID cards indistinguishable from Mexico's official ID, now accepted in the U.S. to open bank accounts and obtain driver's licenses.

According to Williams' sources, thousands of al-Qaida sleeper agents have now been forward deployed into the U.S. to carry out their individual roles in the coming "American Hiroshima" plan.

Why?

Why not fill the bookshops of Islam with books promoting forgiveness, love and compassion?

Secret books of hate from DAILY TELEGRAPH.COM JULY 18, 2005 by JOSH MASSOUD and KELVIN BISSETT

BOOKS of hate promoting jihad, hostility to Australia and "wiring up one's body" for suicide attacks are for sale in bookshops in Sydney's Muslim community.

A special investigation by The Daily Telegraph in the wake of the London bombings found extremist literature on shelves near innocuous children's reading such as It's fun to wear a hijab.

One incendiary tome bought for $11, Defence of the Muslim Lands carries an endorsement from Osama bin Laden on its cover.

The book by Sheik Abdullah Azzam, found at The Islamic Bookstore at Lakemba, discusses the effectiveness of suicide bombings.

"The form this usually takes nowadays is to wire up one's body, or a vehicle or a suitcase with explosives, and then to enter amongst a conglomeration of the enemy and to detonate . . ." the writer states.

"There is no other technique which strikes as much terror into their hearts, and which shatters their spirits as much."

Bin Laden wrote that women "have proven themselves incapable" of giving birth to another man like the author, believed killed in a bombing in the 1980s.

Another book by the same author, Join the Caravan, contains similar themes. "For how long will the believing youths be held back and restrained from jihad?" it reads.

The Absent Obligation, by hanged revolutionary Muhammad 'Abdus Salam Faraj, also advocates individuals participating in martyrdom operations.

The black book discusses how self detonation differs from suicide, offering quotes from the Koran to support the claim. "Indeed, there is a vast difference between the one who ends his life due to his inability to bear the difficulties of life and its various tribulations and the one who offers his life for the cause of Allah."

The large Haldon St shop, associated with the Saudi-based Wahabi tradition of Islam, is close to the Lakemba Prayer Hall.

Members of the prayer hall have been interviewed by ASIO in the past. French terrorist Willie Brigitte – deported from Australia in 2003 – is understood to have worshipped there.

In the same bookshop, a 2002 book by migrant Omar Hassan is loaded with vitriol for his Australian homeland, which he says is a land of discrimination, victimisation, drugs, prostitution and gambling. Hassan describes migrating to Australia as a "life sentence" and claims being Australian is "something to be ashamed of".

Among his claims is a conspiracy between government and police to turn Muslim children into drug addicts "to wipe out the new Muslim generation".

A few kilometres away in Auburn, other distressing texts could be found in the IDCA bookstore on Auburn Rd.

At Mary St, Auburn, other books were found at the Islamic Science, Culture and Art Association. Texts included The Qur'anic Concept of War.

1981 to 2001

During the period from 1981 to 2001 there were 7,581 terrorist attacks worldwide.

For money

Al Mendhar reports:
Iraq violence driven by money - US general
WASHINGTON: Violence by insurgents in Iraq is largely driven by money, not ideology, with former regime members paying militants as little as $US100 per attack, a top US military commander said today.

Army Lt. Gen. John Vines, commander of coalition forces in Iraq, also said that foreign governments including Syria did not appear to be directly involved in supporting the insurgency.
But he said "facilitators" based in Syria were helping militants penetrate Iraq.
"We believe that this insurgency is driven in large measure by money. What we find is that there's monetary value assigned to attacks against the coalition," said Vines, speaking to Pentagon reporters from Iraq via teleconference.
"In many cases, we find that this has no ideology. These insurgents don't have an ideology except violence and power," he said. "And so those who seek to regain power hire people for money to attack the Iraqi security forces as well as the coalition."

A Muslim solution is needed

If It's a Muslim Problem, It Needs a Muslim Solution
New York Times ^ | 7/8/05 | Thomas Friedman


Yesterday's bombings in downtown London are profoundly disturbing. In part, that is because a bombing in our mother country and closest ally, England, is almost like a bombing in our own country.

[...]

Because there is no obvious target to retaliate against, and because there are not enough police to police every opening in an open society, either the Muslim world begins to really restrain, inhibit and denounce its own extremists - if it turns out that they are behind the London bombings - or the West is going to do it for them. And the West will do it in a rough, crude way - by simply shutting them out, denying them visas and making every Muslim in its midst guilty until proven innocent.

And because I think that would be a disaster, it is essential that the Muslim world wake up to the fact that it has a jihadist death cult in its midst. If it does not fight that death cult, that cancer, within its own body politic, it is going to infect Muslim-Western relations everywhere. Only the Muslim world can root out that death cult. It takes a village.

[...]

The Muslim village has been derelict in condemning the madness of jihadist attacks. When Salman Rushdie wrote a controversial novel involving the prophet Muhammad, he was sentenced to death by the leader of Iran. To this day - to this day - no major Muslim cleric or religious body has ever issued a fatwa condemning Osama bin Laden.

Nihilism

The dictionary defines Nihilism - Absolute destructiveness toward the world at large and oneself.

They turned the city into hell

They turned the city into hell, and we cannot live in it anymore
FROM THE Telegraph (UK)
.....Tribal leaders in Husaybah are attacking followers of Abu Musab Zarqawi, the Jordanian-born terrorist who established the town as an entry point for al-Qa'eda jihadists being smuggled into the country.

Following al-Qa'eda's seizure of the main buildings a number of residents fled. Arkan Salim, 56, who left with his wife and four children, said:

"We thought they were patriotic. Now we discovered that they are sick and crazy.

"They interfered in everything, even how we raise our children. They turned the city into hell, and we cannot live in it anymore." .....
