transliterated from the Arabic as al-Qa'idah, meaning 'the base', a radical Sunni Muslim umbrella organization motivating, recruiting, training and coordinating the commission of violence against any persons not actively supporting their objectives: to "unite all Muslims and to establish a government which follows the rule of the Caliphs". To this end al-Qa'eda's strategy is to overthrow all muslim governments influenced by the West and to eventually abolish all state boundaries within a world caliphate.
It is important
to remember that the primary source of motivation for the initial rise of international terrorism, as represented by al-Qa'eda, is
the unresolved injustices suffered by the Palestinian people.

  In the 1,326-years of Islam's existence prior to 1948 there was no such thing as 'Islamic terrorism'; it simply did not exist!  
Mossad contribution
begets terrorism
Friday, November 24: In Peshawar, Pakistan – Palestinian Islamic preacher Abdullah Yusuf Azzam (teaching defensive jihad), mentor of Osama bin-Laden, and moderating influence on radical Ayman al-Zawahiri, is assassinated by a bomb on his way to mosque to lead prayer. Israel's Mossad is suspected.

Osama bin-Laden
US Assassination
of unarmed Bin Laden
Government Vigilantism
Treating a symptom means nothing if its cause continues...
Killing a leader does not stop a movement if the original motivation for its existence continues, as it does with al-Qa'eda and its related groups.
Monday, May 2, 1.15 AM local time: In the town of of Abbottãbad, Pakistan, four American military helicopters, from Ghazi air base in northwest Pakistan, carrying 64 combatants (24 SEALS & 40 Special Forces) attack the home of Osama bin-Laden in a raid lasting 38 minutes. The only opposition are shots fired by a Kahn brother from a guest-house near the main building. Osama is wounded in the right side of his head when he looks out the door as US Seals ascend the stairs to his third-floor room. In his room, the women trying to help him are pulled out of the way and the US Seals ('The Shooter' Robert O'Neill) fire several shots into Bin Laden's still-twitching body until he is motionless (unarmed and in his pyjamas),
Khalil (son of bin-Laden), and at least two other people are reportedly also shot dead. Osama's wife who tried to shield him in his bedroom is shot in the leg. (Four of the five people killed were unarmed). Other unidentified males are taken by US helicopter away from the scene, while four children and two women are arrested and leave in an ambulance. Bin-Laden's 12-year-old daughter (in Pakistan custody along with her mother) claims that her father was shot in front of her without warning. One US helicopter, unable to take off, is destroyed by its crew who leave with the others. Osama's body is later discarded at sea after DNA tests confirm his identity.
Prof Christof Heyns, the UN's independent investigator of extra-judicial killings, says –
"Washington should disclose the supporting facts to allow an assessment in terms of international human rights law standards [what the US calls the Law of War]. It will be particularly important to know if the planning of the mission allowed an effort to capture bin Laden." (emphasis mine)
Ayman al-Zawahiri now becomes the leader of al-Qa'eda.
execution without trial
just like the tactics
of al-Qa'eda affiliates
Saturday, August 13: In Lahore, Pakistan – Jewish American development consultant Warren Weinstein is abducted.
(December 2, Ayman al-Zawahiri offers to release Weinstein if the US ceases its air strikes on Afghanistan, and Pakistan, frees prisoners, and Israel lifts its blockade/siege of Gaza).
Foreign hostages in Pakistan
Friday, February 10: North African Islamic Jihadist groups Boko Haram (north Nigeria) and al-Shabaab (Somalia) announce that they have merged with al-Qa'eda.
(In 2009,
Nigerian police forces fighting Boko Haram in the northern city of Maiduguri had lost about 30 officers in a violent firefight. The next day, the police executed many of the men they had rounded up and detained as suspected Boko Haram fighters. The retaliatory killings often happened right outside police headquarters in full view of the public. Bodies piled up outside the building while the executions continued. So its police are no less feared by the people (and therefore they are uncooperative) in that area than Boko Haram. The incident illustrates the quandary the international community faces in helping the incompetent Nigerian government rescue the nearly 300 girls kidnapped in April 2014 by Boko Haram, an unquestionably brutal armed group.)
The past two years have seen al-Qaeda affiliates in the Magreb, Yemen, Somalia, and Iraq become more active, while new al-Qaeda fronts have opened in Africa and the Middle East. Foreign fighters are joining local jihadists, and the terrorist group boasts that homegrown terrorists successfully carried out an attack on enemy soil (the Boston Marathon bombing).
August: In Nigeria – The 7th Infantry Division is established for the war against Boko Haram. But reports from within Nigeria indicate that its police and military often cut the throats of prisoners, and so they are feared and distrusted by the local people as much as Boko Haram.
So sadly: 2014
April 14: In Chibok, in Borno state, North East Nigeria – Boko Haram (led by Abubakar Shekau) abducts 276 secondary school girls, and a further 8, aged between eight and 15, taken in an overnight raid on Waraba village. Some escape from the jungle hideout and describe where they were but the Nigerian government seems to do little to rescue them other than have their police offer a reward. Nigeria's military has more than 1,400 armoured vehicles, 360 tanks, and 6,000 logistical vehicles at its disposal as well as nearly 300 aircraft, and they 'say' two military divisions are searching for the girls, from which those girls that escaped had simply run home.
Boko Haram continues to attack and kill villagers across North Eastern Nigeria in its terror campaign to impose Sharia law, without any effective response from the Nigerian government.
November 6: In north-western Syria – The US led military coalition carries out air-strikes against al-Qa'eda affiliate al-Nusra Front, and Syrian Islamist rebel group Ahrar al-Sham near the Turkish border.
13: In Chibok, Borno state, Nigeria – Boko Haram seize total control of the town from which they had abducted the school girls, further demonstrating the inadequacy of the Nigerian government..
Saturday 6: In Shabwa Region, Yemen – American Special Forces fail in their attempt to rescue hostages Luke Somers (US journalist) and Pierre Korkie (South African teacher) and the two are then shot.
The US excuse that a
barking dog betrayed the
approach of its soldiers
and so precipitated the
killing is not very clever,
for the drone-rockets and
strafing by US jets make a
little more noise than that.
South African relief organisation Gift of the Givers of Dr Imtiaz Sooliman (which had been raising ransom money for Korkie) had reached an agreement with al-Qa'eda to release Korkie on Sunday 7 December, but the botched US-led rescue attempt caused his agreed release to fail. (Korkie's wife had been freed earlier this year after negotiations by the same Gift of the Givers).
US drones had struck the area first on Saturday, followed by strafing runs by US jets, before Yemeni ground forces moved in. US helicopters then flew in more forces to raid the house where the two men were held, but the prior attacks had precipitated the shooting of the hostages.
USA Threat-level Advisory Grades
USA threat level grades

Bad-luck Jonathan's Playground
The continued inefficiency of the Nigerian government allows the Boko Haram affiliate of al-Qa'eda to escalate its campaign into effectively a civil-war in North East Nigeria.
  And so the self-righteous evil of al-Qa'eda still continues . . .
Current National Threat Level is elevated
Footnote on Cause –
Many pro-Israel preachers quote Bible promises (out-of-context), twisting them to say that God will bless those who bless/support Israel and curse those who curse Israel. But, across the world today, a kind of terrorism continues to kill the innocent and drain national economies which did not exist a hundred years ago when the Zionist State of Israel did not exist.
terrorism exists today in direct response to the West's support for the 'State of Israel'. (The Zionist Hostilities chronology will give some idea of the Islamic motivation behind this).

*veto of every UN Security Council censure of illegal Israeli actions;
financial subsidising of the counterfeit State of Israel;
supply of anti-personnel weapons used in Palestinian residential areas;
etc. etc. . . .
God judges those who
bless the unrepentant.
God is unfaithful to His Word, or God thinks otherwise, for 9/11 and every other tragedy at home or overseas in Iraq or Afghanistan is part of the West reaping what it has 'sowed' for its unconditional support* of a State which from its beginning defined itself in racist terms (Jewish) in disregard of the nationhood of more than 20% of its own non-Jewish citizens, and its other cruel human rights abuses, such as its collective punishment policies, racially discriminatory practices in areas under its control, etc...
So God's judgment
on the West for its unconditional support of 'Israel' is more than morally justified, and every Christian is without excuse for not recognising it, for it was clearly stated regarding the great impartial Judge of All (as our example) –
that He 'so loved the world [kosmos] that...', and
He therefore expects every Christian to objectively echo His own attitude in all things!
  This sin does not in any way justify any form of terrorism, but it does directly contribute to the loss of God's protection.
