Woman Comes Out Of The Shadows And Drops Bombshell About Paris Attack

The investigation into November’s deadly Paris terrorist attacks has revealed that the mastermind behind the attacks slipped into Europe accompanied by 90 ISIS militants as part of the wave of Syrian refugees that has inundated the continent.

A woman who tipped police off to the hiding place of attack leader Abdelhamid Abaaoud told investigators that Abaaoud was bragging about the many fighters who came with him. He said 90 jihadists had filtered through Europe from Syria using false papers. An official familiar with the investigation told Fox News that those returning included French, British, German, Iraqi and Syrian citizens. The official said Abaaoud boasted that his network had terrorists based in Paris and across Europe. 50 to 60 of the operatives in Abaaoud’s network reportedly slipped into Europe through Greece, Bulgaria and Romania.

The woman who testified about Abaaoud and is known by the alias of Sonia said she met him two days after the attacks in a gypsy camp in Aubervilliers, a northern suburb of Paris.

“I said to him, ‘You have killed innocent people!’” she said. “He said to me, ‘No, they aren’t innocent. You have to see what’s happening with us in Syria.’”

She said the terrorist showed no remorse.

“He spoke about the attacks as if he had been shopping and had found a box of discounted washing up liquid. He was happy. That was it,” she said.

The woman also said that Abaaoud had planned further terrorist attacks after the initial strikes in which 130 people were killed, targeting a police station and a nursery. She said she alerted police to his whereabouts after learning of the plan for more deaths.

Abaaoud and three other ISIS terrorists were killed Nov. 18 when police raided their apartment.

Sonia has gone into hiding, and changed her identify, but spoke about the attacks this week on RMC radio in Paris . She also added, “Even if I live in danger, really, I’d rather it this way than have the death of innocent people on my conscience.”

Revealed: 1 Disturbing Fact About Islamic Mosque Obama Visited That’s Raising Eyebrows

The Baltimore-area mosque that hosted President Obama on Wednesday had been placed under surveillance by the FBI since 2010 due to the activities of one of its members, according to a published report.

“President Obama is conferring legitimacy on a Baltimore mosque the FBI just a few years ago was monitoring as a breeding ground for terrorists, after arresting a member for plotting to blow up a federal building,” wrote Investors Business Daily in an editorial.

“The mosque that is hosting the commander in chief, while receiving his historic benediction graduated a terrorist who plotted to blow up a local Army recruiting station, hired an imam who condoned suicide bombings and blames American ‘foreign policy’ for terrorism. Obama has to be willfully blind not to see all these ties to terror,” IBD added.

“Or maybe he knows all about them, and just doesn’t care — or even actively favors this activity,” added commentator Pamela Geller. “Those are the choices: he is either stupid, which he isn’t, or willfully ignorant, which he is unlikely to be, or simply outright traitorous.”

According to the IDB editorial, the FBI began surveillance of the Islamic Society of Baltimore since around 2010 when Antonio Martinez, also known as Muhammad Hussain, and others discussed bombing an Army recruiting center.

“He indicated that if the military continued to kill their Muslim brothers and sisters, they would need to expand their operation by killing U.S. Army personnel where they live,” IDB quoted FBI special agent Keith Bender as writing. Martinez was sentenced to 25 years in prison in 2012.

“It’s now abundantly clear the White House failed to properly vet the venue. Reportedly, it let the Council on American-Islamic Relations choose the site, even though the FBI has banned CAIR from outreach because of known ties to the Hamas terrorist group,” the IBD editorial said.

 

Saba Ahmed: “President Obama came to this mosque to cultivate Muslim-American voters for the upcoming presidential election.”Brooke Goldstein: “Speaking at a terror-affiliated mosque is not how you cultivate the Muslim-American community, unless you think all Muslim-Americans are sympathetic to terror.” bit.ly/1X4Bl9O

WATCH: How Al-Qaeda’s Branch In Syria Has Become A Bigger Danger To The World Than ISIS

While all eyes are on the Islamic State’s activities in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Egypt, Israel and other countries in the Middle East and beyond, an even bigger danger is threatening the world but has remained largely unnoticed say the Institute of War (ISW) and the American Enterprise Institute (AEI).

According to the think tanks new report, the West has been ‘dangerously underestimating’ what al-Qaeda is doing in Syria. Both think tanks believe al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra is an even more dangerous group than the Islamic State (Daesh).

According to Business Insider, the report says Jabhat al-Nusra poses ‘one of the most significant long-term threats’ of any jihadist group.

Furthermore, it says that Jabhat al-Nusra has established a huge network of partnerships with Syrian opposition groups that have sworn allegiance to the organization. “It’s defeat and destruction must be one of the highest priorities of any strategy to defend the United States and Europe from al-Qaeda attacks,” the report warned.

“Jabhat al-Nusra has weakened the moderate opposition and penetrated other Sunni opposition groups in Syria so thoroughly that it is poised to benefit the most from the destruction of ISIS and the fall of the Assad regime,” the IWS and AEI reported.

The think tanks wrote that the most likely outcome of the current strategy in Syria will be the establishment of an Al-Qaeda emirate because Jabhat al-Nusra has the backing of many other militias and significant parts of the Syrian population.

At the end of 2015, VICE News released a revealing video report on Jabhat al-Nusra’s strategy in Syria that showed the group is much more than simply a militia fighting Bashar al-Assad’s regime. The group provides, for example, education to children who are trained to become Jihadi’s and are brainwashed into believing that killing Jews is the holy duty of every Muslim.

ISW and AEI predict that after achieving its goals in Syria Jabhat al-Nusra will join al-Qaeda in a new offensive against the West. Kimberly Kagan, the president of ISW told Business Insider that the United States is too focused on ISIS and is ignoring the threat Jabhat al-Nusra is posing.

The group is working according to a long-term strategy, Kagan said.

“ISIS is overt about its presence and al-Nusra is covert about its activities in Syria,” the ISW director said.

This is one of the reasons the U.S. is not sufficiently focused on the activities of the Syrian al-Qaeda branch, according to Kagan. Al-Nusra wants to be underestimated because it serves it’s long term goals. A defeat of the Islamic State in Syria will “likely increase the capability and strength of Jabhat al-Nusra,” Kagan added.

With or without an ISIS defeat, Jabhat al-Nusra is on the march in Syria.

Yesterday the group staged a massive show of force in Aleppo, the second city in Syria. The al-Qaeda branch drove a huge convoy of 200 vehicles with heavily armed fighters through the streets of the city ahead of a re-deployment in the area.

The El-Dorar news site reported that al-Nusra was reinforcing its troops north of Aleppo in anticipation of a new offensive by the Russian-Iranian-led pro-Assad coalition. The reinforcements arrived from Idlib province in northwest Syria near the Turkish border where al-Nusra is controlling large swaths of territory.

Syrian and Lebanese sources reported that the pro-Assad coalition aims to lift al-Nusra’s siege on two Shiite villages north of Aleppo. The villages have been surrounded by the al-Qaeda branch since the summer of 2012. Jabhat al-Nusra fighters have also taken control over neighborhoods in eastern Aleppo. Residents of the city fear that al-Nusra’s ultimate goal is to gain control over all of Aleppo and to impose Sharia law on the city.

The Free Syrian Army in Aleppo expects that a battle for control of Aleppo will start soon after a large number of masked Nusra fighters deployed in the city and began setting up checkpoints in residential areas. A commander of Jabhat al-Nusra denied that the group will start an offensive in residential areas and said that the checkpoints were erected for security reasons only.

Breaking: ISIS Names Terrifying Specifics Of Next Target In Gruesome Video Of Paris Attackers

An ISIS video that features several terrorists who committed the November attacks in Paris also points at ISIS’ next target.

The video shows images of London landmarks like Tower Bridge and St. Paul’s Cathedral, with extremists claiming they are ready to strike “anytime, anywhere.” British Prime Minister David Cameron is shown with a crosshairs over his face. Images of British lawmakers voting in favor of Syrian airstrikes are also shown while a narrator threatens attacks against the coalition fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

In the video’s closing scene, it shows a ISIS militant holding a severed head and footage of Cameron giving a speech — with a text in English warns that anyone siding with unbelievers “will be a target for our swords.”

The 17-minute video, provided online by the SITE Intelligence Group, shows many of the Paris attackers. A narrator describes the terrorists as “nine lions of the caliphate who were mobilized from their lairs to make a whole country, France, get down on its knees.” Some of the attackers were videoed standing behind bound captives, described as “apostates,” who were then beheaded or shot.

“Soon on the Champs-Elysées,” said French-born Samy Amimour as he holds aloft what is shown as the head of a captive.

“So if you have sent your ‘Hunter’ fight jets to bomb the Muslims, then know that the Islamic State has sent you ‘hunters’ who thirst for the blood of the disbelievers, hunters who will not hesitate to slaughter you,” said a man referred in the video as Abu Umar al-Baljiki.

“You destroy our homes and kill our fathers, our brothers, our sisters, our mothers, our children,” said Bilal Hadfi, who blew himself up in a soccer stadium as part of the November attack on Paris.

What John Kerry Was Just Caught ADMITTING About Obama’s Iran Deal Is Dropping Jaws Everywhere

According to a CNN report, John Kerry admitted that some of the $150 billion given to Iran will be invested into state-sponsored terrorism. The Obama administration, in a nuclear deal with Iran, cleared the way for sanctions to be lifted, and for billions of U.S. dollars to be funneled to Iran. The admission came after Kerry was asked if the money given from the Iran deal would make it into the hands of terrorists.

Kerry reportedly said that there was nothing that could prevent those funds from falling into the hands of terrorists. “I think that some of it will end up in the hands of the IRGC or other entities, some of which are labeled terrorists … You know, to some degree, I’m not going to sit here and tell you that every component of that can be prevented.”

As the deal was being drawn up, critics contended the funds sent would undoubtedly end up in the hands of terrorist groups, making the Obama administration complicit in state-sponsored terrorism. Ironically, while President Obama maintains a position that Bashar al Assad must step down as the president of Syria, Iran is a bulwark for Assad. Thus, the money given to Iran will likely go into the hands of militants fighting the U.S. and coalition forces. If that happened the U.S. would, in essence, be paying Iran to attack U.S. forces, or at the very least, attack U.S. foreign policy interests. Kerry responded to that possibility.

“There is no way they can succeed in what they want to do if they are very busy funding a lot of terrorism,” he said. “If we catch them funding terrorism, they are going to have a problem with the United States Congress and other people, obviously … We are confident that this will not result in an increase somehow in the threat to any partner or any friend in the region.”
