3 ISIS Twitter accounts ‘trace back to UK govt computers,’ claim hackers

At least three Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) supporters’ social media accounts are run from IP addresses linked to the British government’s Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), a group of hackers has claimed.

The group of teenage computer experts, known as ‘VandaSec,’ have unearthed details of internet protocol (IP) addresses used by three jihadists to access Twitter accounts used to carry out online recruitment.

The addresses were thought to be based in Saudi Arabia, but upon further inspection they linked back to the DWP’s London offices, according to the Daily Mirror.

Don’t you think that’s strange?” one of the hackers asked the Daily Mirror.

We traced these accounts back to London, the home of the British intelligence services,” they added.

German official says Syrian passport may have been used as a “FALSE FLAG” to stir fear of refugees.

French police are hunting for a second fugitive directly involved in the deadly Paris attacks, officials said Tuesday after France made an unprecedented demand that its European Union allies support its military action against the Islamic State group.

Surveillance video obtained by The Associated Press indicates a team of three attackers carried out the shootings at a Paris sidewalk cafe, leading police to believe that a second assailant is on the loose.

Video footage shows two black-clad gunmen with automatic weapons calmly firing on the bar, then returning slowly toward a waiting car, whose driver was maneuvering behind them.

Officials previously had not specified how many people were involved in the attack on the sidewalk bar on La Fontaine au Roi street.

Three French officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment on the investigation, confirmed that an analysis of the series of attacks on Friday indicated that one additional person directly involved in the assault remains unaccounted for.

In Germany, Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told reporters in Berlin that a Syrian passport found with one of the Paris attackers with the name Ahmad al Mohammad may have been a false flag intended to make Europeans fearful of refugees. The passport showed registrations in Greece, Serbia and Croatia, which he described as “unusual.”

Chilling new face of police in Britain

Chilling new face of police in Britain

Armed to the teeth and sporting military fatigues and a combat helmet, the officer is part of a counter-terrorism unit unveiled at Wembley last night.

The elite Scotland Yard squad arrived in huge armoured vehicles to throw a ring of steel around the 80,000 fans watching England beat France.

The marksmen were also toting their new lightweight, semi-automatic SIG 516 rifle.

The 130-strong unit has been developing new tactics with UK special forces, including abseiling from helicopters and tackling rampaging gunmen.

They have been trained to shoot for the head instead of the usual target, the chest.

They came out of the shadows in the wake of the massacre of 129 people in Paris on Friday.

The heightened terror threat was confirmed last night when another friendly – between Germany and the Netherlands – was called off very late because of a ‘concrete’ bomb threat.

No risks were taken because three of the seven Paris suicide bombers had targeted a fixture at the Stade de France between France and Germany.

Last night’s match began with English and French fans uniting to sing France’s national anthem, La Marseillaise.

One expert described the counter-terrorism officers at Wembley as ‘effectively SAS officers in police uniform’.

Amid some of the tightest security ever seen at a sporting fixture, they took up key positions around the ground.

Many of the officers chose to cover their faces because they sometimes work undercover.

Twilight of the Idols: How Celebrities Kill the Paris Debacle

Twilight of the Idols: How Celebrities Kill the Paris Debacle

You’ve got to love celebrities. They crack you up sometimes. They are able to live in both the rational and irrational worlds at the same time and in the same respect. The first lesson you learn in philosophy or any serious subject such as math is that contradictory statements prove that something is wrong.

Celebrities seem to believe that they are living in a different dimension, where irrationality becomes logical and contradictory statements are reasonable. This never ceases to amaze me.

The Paris debacle once again proves to be a complete disaster for celebrities who pretentiously say that they cherish all life. More recently, celebrities have gone to great length condemning whatever they think happened in Paris. The list of those celebrities is almost endless:

Vice President Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Ben Carson, Donald Trump, LeBron James, Jake T. Austin, Guillermo del Toro, Kourtney Kardashian, Pete Davidson, Victoria Justice, Rowan Blanchard, John Isner, Christina Milian, Rachel Zoe, Back Street Boys, Mark Hamill, Kevin Jonas, Shannen Doherty, Zachari Levi, Sophia Bush, Amanda Seales, Lelia Broussard, Chris Pratt, Dr. Phil, Blink 182, Carole King, Amy Schumer, Ellen DeGeneres, Emma Watson, Rashida Jones, Chris Rock, Katy Perry, etc.[1]

Listen to Bono here, as he explains the situation:

“This is the first direct hit on music that we’ve had in this so-called war on terror or whatever it’s called. It’s very upsetting. These are our people. This could be me at a show. You at a show, in that venue. It’s a very recognizable situation for you and for me, and the coldblooded aspect of this slaughter is deeply disturbing and that’s what I can’t get out of my head.”[2]

French Jews Warned Friday Morning of ‘Impending Large Terrorist Attack’

French Jews Warned Friday Morning of ‘Impending Large Terrorist Attack’

Intelligence in the lead-up to Friday evening’s terrorist attacks in Paris was not nearly so scarce as had initially been indicated, and several nations, including Iraq and Israel, appear to have been passing France intelligence on the matter in the days leading up to the attack.

According to the Times of Israel, French Jewish security officials were informed of an “impending large terrorist attack” in France on Friday morning, There was considerable speculation in the lead-up that France’s Jewish community would be among the targets.

Ultimately, this appears not to have been the case, though the community notes that the Bataclan, the site of the massive hostage-taking, was until very recently Jewish-owned, and has repeatedly been the site of both IDF fundraisers and anti-Israel protests, raising speculation that this made the target higher-profile for ISIS.

Jewish owners recently sold Paris’s Bataclan theater, where IS killed dozens

Jewish owners recently sold Paris’s Bataclan theater, where IS killed dozens

The Bataclan theater, targeted in Friday night’s Paris terror attacks, was Jewish-owned for decades, but was sold two months ago, its former owners said.

French magazine Le Point said early Saturday that the Bataclan, where at least 80 people were massacred by Islamic State gunmen on Friday night, has for years been the target of anti-Zionist groups as the Jewish owners often put on pro-Israel events. The publication quoted a member of the extremist group Army of Islam, who told French security services in 2011 that, “We had planned an attack against the Bataclan because its owners are Jews.”

The Eagles of Death Metal, the band performing at the theater when the attacks began, played in Tel Aviv’s Barby club in July.

Pascal Laloux, one of the theater’s former owners, said Saturday that the theater was “sold in September after 40 years.”

“We’re devastated because we knew everyone who worked there,” he told Israel’s Channel 2 news.

His brother Joel, the co-owner, told Channel 2 that they sold the theater on September 11, and he recently immigrated to Israel. He said he took a call from the theater at the time of the attack “and I could hear the gunfire.”

Putin: ISIS financed from 40 countries, including G20 members

Putin: ISIS financed from 40 countries, including G20 members

President Vladimir Putin says he’s shared Russian intelligence data on Islamic State financing with his G20 colleagues: the terrorists appear to be financed from 40 countries, including some G20 member states.

During the summit, “I provided examples based on our data on the financing of different Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) units by private individuals. This money, as we have established, comes from 40 countries and, there are some of the G20 members among them,” Putin told the journalists.

Putin also spoke of the urgent need to curb the illegal oil trade by IS.

I’ve shown our colleagues photos taken from space and from aircraft which clearly demonstrate the scale of the illegal trade in oil and petroleum products,” he said.

The motorcade of refueling vehicles stretched for dozens of kilometers, so that from a height of 4,000 to 5,000 meters they stretch beyond the horizon,” Putin added, comparing the convoy to gas and oil pipeline systems.

Surveillance can beat the threat.. Here we go!

Surveillance can beat the threat.. Here we go!

THE loss of life in Paris is a chilling reminder of how easy it is for terrorists to commit such an atrocity.

So let’s not kid ourselves. Our security agencies are confronted with an enemy that is highly trained, knows how to remain anonymous and is prepared to die.

The modern-day terrorist is effectively a trained soldier who treats our streets as a battlefield by murdering innocent people.

Simultaneous attacks at several venues mean the security forces struggle to be in the right place at the right time.

They are trying to catch up, rather than quickly stem the violence and identify the perpetrators.

Security agencies rely on intelligence to prevent attacks. There is no doubt that Edward Snowden’s disclosure of surveillance techniques has given terrorists an advantage.

Terrorists tend to target crowded places and iconic sites. Therefore, an effective deterrent is to use uniformed police patrols alongside CCTV monitoring.

There may also be a place for undercover surveillance to investigate suspicious behaviour. But probably the biggest challenge for the Government’s emergency Cobra committee now is to ensure sources of intelligence are cultivated.

How the West bankrolls Isis: Millions from governments and NGOs funding radical Islamic terror group

How the West bankrolls Isis: Millions from governments and NGOs funding radical Islamic terror group

Western governments are sending millions of pounds of aid to areas held by the radical Islamic group Isis in northern Syria.

The aid, which is paid for by the UK, European and US governments, consists of food, medicine and hygiene kits. It is brought into the country through the war-torn north from the two last remaining border posts open with Turkey in Reyhanli and Kilis.

Western groups such as Mercy Corps International, the Norwegian Refugee Council, World Vision, the International Rescue Committee and the United Nations World Food Programme provide supplies to hundreds of thousands of people every month across the self-proclaimed Islamic State.

This includes towns such as Raqqa, Manbij and Jarablus, which have witnessed beheadings, crucifixions and other draconian interpretations of sharia since Isis took over early this year.

“We have lots of direct shipments into Isis-held areas. Nearly all of our trucks go through the Turkish border post near Kilis. Sometimes they get stuck en route, and we have to wait two or three weeks for them to get there if they get held up by fighting or another opposition group which isn’t happy that we’re sending aid through an Isis checkpoint,” said a Western aid worker.
